If "The Hotel" was the quintessential maid story (and for me it is), this is the epitome of the feminization, cuckold fantasy. By epitome, this is what I mean. A good summary of this genre is this:
- Wife finds out about husband's fantasy: cuckolding and feminization.
- Wife eases, teases husband into the fantasy.
- Husband has his "careful what you wish for" experience.
- Husband ends up delightfully feminized and in heaven while his wife teases him with other her lovers.
Sara (the author) has good writing skills. That's important. Especially when I read so much fiction that sounds like someone calling a play in football. There's never a moment when we don't feel and know what's going on inside of John. There's never a moment when we don't experience his anguish and ecstasy. The narration is solid, but it's the dialogue between husband and wife that makes this book what it is. It's watching Sara (the character) gently directing John's mind, leading him where she wants him that makes this book one of those pieces of fiction that I read over and over.
I have a few books that I always seem to be reading. Sara Desmerais's "A Change in our Marriage" is one of them. When I get to the end, I flip back to the beginning and watch it unfold all over again.
The ending is a natural feeling ending, and it's thrilling, and it establishes where John and Sara will now be. The point of no return. The change.
