    I can t even describe how much I loved this book.Let me explain you a thing I love series like Rome and Spartacus for their decadent, wicked, delightfully despicable female noblewomen characters This book is like that except with wall to wall sex Princess Shanyin is unapologetic, powerful, lustfuland her world is spinning out of control thanks to the behaviour of her brother, the Emperor There s political intrigue, danger, violence, and THIRTY MALE CONCUBINES and one nobleman she s I can t even describe how much I loved this book.Let me explain you a thing I love series like Rome and Spartacus for their decadent, wicked, delightfully despicable female noblewomen characters This book is like that except with wall to wall sex Princess Shanyin is unapologetic, powerful, lustfuland her world is spinning out of control thanks to the behaviour of her brother, the Emperor There s political intrigue, danger, violence, and THIRTY MALE CONCUBINES and one nobleman she s compelled to serve her, who won t submit and thus becomes the object of the title Obsession.It s so sexy and luscious, and I loved Princess Shanyin from the first line of the first page Will be purchasing and devouring the next two books in this series in short order Highly recommended if you, like me, enjoy powerful, shameless women getting into all kinds of trouble in debauched historical settings And orgies And threesomes And so much pussy eating melts into a puddle oh and before you think this is all sex sex sex, there s genuine danger and violence and heartbreak and fear, too.If premium cable made a miniseries of this with a cast of the world s sexiest East Asian actors, I could die happy

    Um I need the rest of this series Now 4.5 stars almost 5 stars except it wasn t quite long or developed enough for me, but I think that will be solved by reading the next two in the series, I think they ll work better as a set.

    Wow Ok I have a few confessions to make while I love Jeannie Lin s works SWORD DANCER I never thought much of her sex scenes, they felt perfunctory at best So I was a little skeptical about this historical erotica But she hit all her scenes out of the ballpark Second so i can count the amount of erotica I ve actually read on one hand, so take this with a grain of salt, but out of the erotica s I have read and those I have not finished Lol this is by far my absolute favourite Wow Ok I have a few confessions to make while I love Jeannie Lin s works SWORD DANCER I never thought much of her sex scenes, they felt perfunctory at best So I was a little skeptical about this historical erotica But she hit all her scenes out of the ballpark Second so i can count the amount of erotica I ve actually read on one hand, so take this with a grain of salt, but out of the erotica s I have read and those I have not finished Lol this is by far my absolute favourite so far The dynamics between Shanyin and Yuan is SO FUCKED UP, intense mind games and power play and general mindfuckery it very very loosely reminds me of Captive Prince, wherein you only get one POV and lots of mind fuckery, except maybe this is from Laurent s perspective But in this alternate universe he d be really into sex Ok just the mind games part lol ANYHOW all that boils down to the fact that these mind games make each interaction sexual and otherwise between Yuan and Shanyin SO TENSE, and I love it Buuuut and here lies spoilers so stay away spoiler phobes I am Not sure how I feel about that ending To be honest, I keep waiting for the day Jeannie Lin delivers me the traditional Chinese romance ending which is everyone commits suicide and gets reincarnated together or something And for this story I guess I wanted her to get the poison for real And maybe Yuan dies with her But no, she lives another day, but ends up as a courtesan as per summary of second book, and I m just not feeling it I love princess Shanyin and I don t want her princess title stripped away Not sure if I will check out the rest of the installments I kinda want someone to spoil me for the fulfillment on what happens to Shanyin, so that I can decide if I wanna keep on reading
