After a courtship filled with nights steamy enough to thaw the lingering winter chill, Sarah is finally beginning to believe she might have found the one man who can support her career as a sex worker in Amsterdam’s Red Light district. But when she asks around, it’s clear Rick isn’t taking advantage of the freedom their open relationship offers. None of the sexiest girls in the district have serviced him for months.
Afraid of losing the star of her extra-naughty dreams, Sarah confronts her boyfriend about his change of heart. Rick confesses he’s no longer interested in wild times without her. Instead, he’d like to try experimenting with multiple partners, show off his sexy woman and revel in the company of like-minded hedonists. Fortunately, he knows just the place for a debauched experience wicked enough to make even an experienced hooker blush.
A sexual free-for-all is on the menu at one of Amsterdam’s infamous swingers’ clubs, and by the end of the night, Sarah is going to get the surprise of her life.
What does a sex worker do for fun during her off duty time? What does a sex worker’s boyfriend think about her line of work? The intriguing answers to these questions are revealed in Free For All, Jayne Rylon’s latest book in the Red Light series.
Sarah is a sex worker in Amsterdam’s red light district, performing in front of a window every night she is at work. Rick is her boyfriend, whose line of work appears to involve some kind of entertainment. They have an open relationship that Sarah was hoping Rick would take advantage of and enjoy, but upon checking with the other girls in the district, she has found out that he has not done so. Sarah is very concerned that she is about to lose Rick, whom she loves and fantasizes about every night in her dreams.
Rick takes Sarah to visit an old friend who has helped him with a romantic hideaway and then to a swingers’ club where they widen their sexual horizon and test the limits of their relationship. So is he believable or does this prove that he loves her? She, on the other hand, is concerned that she would be jealous if he does have sex with other women because she might not want to share him. Sarah's not sure of her feelings until she actually sees him with another woman.
I was a bit concerned that I couldn’t read this as a standalone book, but it was still very enjoyable. I didn’t feel as though I landed in the middle of a story that I couldn’t figure out. Since this was the fourth book in the series, the initial attraction part of the relationship had already occurred and the characters were reflecting on their life together which helps give readers the background on their situation. The only parts I could have used more information on were Rick’s job and someone named Hazel.
Ms. Rylon’s writing is very fluid, giving readers enough details to make them feel as though they are in the scenes living vicariously through the characters. This was a fun story and I look forward to reading more from Ms. Rylon.
