Kaori Carnelian was only sixteen when Los Angeles was hit by an earthquake that devastated it. With the world trying to recover from a plague that has wiped out half of the population, she learns how to survive by her wits and a great ability to hide, scavenging through what is left of LA.
Years later, the government sends in recon men Sergeants Tobias Noble and Orion West to find any survivors before another earthquake destroys everything. They find her pleasuring herself and instantly both want her. Her world spirals out of control in a very delicious way. But when the men have to go find two others in their regiment that are missing, Kaori has to decide if her love outweighs her instinct for surviving.
Spirals is a futuristic ménage romance, written in a first person POV. Don’t underestimate this book, or its author, Beth D. Carter. You are not only treated to a scorching hot read, but an in depth story that you won’t soon forget. I was totally engrossed in this novel and couldn’t stop reading until the end.
Kaori has been living all alone for years, in the rundown remnants of LA. She’s learned to be self sufficient, an excellent survivor created out of necessity. It’s touching to read about this young woman’s story. She develops into a woman with no experience besides the sex toys she’s found on her journey. Kaori was such a likable character, and I’ll remember her fondly for a long time to come.
Tobias and Orion are two very different men, but both come to love Kaori as deeply as each is capable. Kaori first thinks they are some of the dangerous men that lurk in the night, but quickly finds out they have arrived to help her. New feelings blossom within her for the two men, and she fantasizes about an encounter with both.
As the exciting plot progresses, the romance also thickens. I loved how close Tobias and Orion were as friends. This was a tasteful ménage with no discomfort or jealousy between anyone.
Spirals has made me a Beth D. Carter fan! If you enjoy a well fleshed out story that will take you away while you read it, with an erotic edge, definitely give Spirals a try.
