Shareem sind gezüchtet und genetisch manipuliert worden, um Frauen zu gefallen und ihren Genuss zu bereiten. Aber dann wurden sie "verboten" und entkamen nur knapp ihrer Vernichtung. Sie leben nun am Rande der Gesellschaft, kaum geduldet und oft ausgenutzt, als Bürger zweiter Klasse.
Vielleicht habe ich von den "Geschichten" über die Shareem zu viel erwartet, zumindest aber eine echte Geschichte im eigentlichen Sinne des Wortes. Der Handlungsbogen dient hier aber in erster Linie dazu Rees und Lady Talan von einem Bett ins andere stolpern zu lassen. (Sie brauchen meist noch nicht einmal ein Bett ...).
Unter dem Aspekt "Aneinanderreihung erotische Szenen" hätte die Story 4-5 Punkte verdient. Mit offenherzigen Worten wird nicht gespart.
Ich bin aber trotzdem enttäuscht. Die Ideen, die in dem Buch stecken, hätten deutlich mehr Raum verdient, als nur gut 200 Seiten. Jennifer Ashley entwirft eigentlich immer interessante Charaktere, die sie normalerweise so lebendig macht, dass man ihre Bücher kaum aus der Hand legen kann.
Rees und Talon bleiben aber blass. Ich hätte gerne sehr viel mehr über sie erfahren. Aber ihre Gefühle und Gedanken werden nur angerissen.
Trotzdem möchte ich wissen wie es weiter geht. Deshalb erhält der erste Teil der Shareem-Serie von mir 3 Punkte.
P.S.: Ich weiß jetzt wie es weiter geht: Die anderen Teile der Serie sind besser als der Einstieg ;)

Lady Talan d'Urvey is seeking enlightenment. Adopted into high society she is ready to take a vow of celibacy. But after discovering the diary of a woman who spent one blissful week with a Shareem, Talan sets out to experience for herself what pleasure of the flesh feels like. When her research leads her to Rees, she finds herself drawn to him immediately. She knows right away she wants him for her experiment.
Rees is not your standard issue Shareem. Born of a unique experiment, he is all three levels in one. Deemed unstable and dangerous, his programmers abandoned the experiment and feared Rees' unpredictable nature. Now that he is free, Rees has managed to hide in plain sight - Though Rees himself isn't quite sure what he is capable of should he ever lose control.
Allyson James has created a futuristic series that will have readers wishing for a time machine! Rees and Talan set the pages ablaze as one of the most perfectly matched pairs this reader has come across. This first book of the series does not disappoint. Not only will readers find the Shareem deeply satisfying, these hot men will leave them panting for more.
After growing up in a world where modern philosophy teaches that the mind and body are separate and sex is not physically necessary Talen finds a very scandalous diary. The diary belonged to one of the upper class higher born ladies. She recounts her affair with a Shareem. Talen's curiosity is piqued. For research purposes only Talen wants to find out what this big fuss is all about. Rees is the lucky Shareem that gets to show Talen what the big fuss is all about and he takes (and gives) immense pleasure in doing so.
If you enjoy reading dominance, spanking and light bondage I highly recommend this book. James has done a wonderful job of tastefully writing this very erotic read. The only reason I did not enjoy the book more is because dominance and trusted control in a sexual situation is not my cup of eroticism. I did enjoy the story and the world that make up the life of the Shareem.
I tend to have the habit of reading the less favorable reviews over favorable ones when I'm thinking about reading a prospective story and what I noticed about the few "blah" reviews this one received was that the readers felt like it was senseless, straight to the point sex - like a something from a cheap porn or something of the such with an underdeveloped storyline and what not.
Alright, I respect those reviewers opinion - for everyone is entitled to one. But after reading this one for myself, I have my own and I'm going to have to respectfully disagree. It wasn't that this story didn't have a story line - it's just that the sex in this story was so fully integrated and concentrated in the overall story that some people might have found it hard to separate the story from the sex itself. By that, this story had a lot of sex in it. In fact, this story was one of the most sexual I've ever read.
Oh, but the author did it so well. I first took an interest in Ms. Ashley when I read a delicious excerpt from one of her Tales of the Shareem stories (Justin) in an erotic sampler (Ten Shades of Sexy). Hers had been the absolute only that appealed to me in the entire book and I was kind of miffed with that and I had said so in that book's review. Anyway, because of that I had bought this one about Rees since this was said to be the first in the series and because I did I now have a interest in reading this author's other books outside of the ones written under her pseudonym. One reviewer said that her other books are better than these and if that's true, than I need to get to those ASAP because I'm already loving this author's style.
Ms. Ashley appears to know what women want to read - at least she does this one. Rees and his other Shareem Playmate Rio (Oh, man - I can't wait to read that one - I already bought it after starting this one; he was super hot!) were the epitome of sexy, as they were created to be. This series appeals to me on so many levels. But on the surface, it appealed to me because its unique in the idea that it is the men who are submitting to us, the women, and to our ideals of what is pleasurable to us. I read plenty of erotica in all of its forms, but its an unfortunate fact that there appears to be a shortage in the genre of male submission. It's usually we women who do the submitting - and, hey, that's fine if that's what the woman wants and if you enjoy reading it (I like reading it myself). But it is still a relief to find that there are some writers out there in the genre who aren't afraid to shift the balance in our favor.
Of this story of Rees, it's pretty simple. He was the prototype of his kind and was actually meant to be terminated because he had been deemed too unpredictable as a Shareem, but he used his appeal to his favor to manipulate the women around him and found he was able to escape his confines before he could be eradicated. In any case, the story from there just shifts to his love interest, which was a high-born girl named Talan who was part of a religious sect that encouraged women to hide and ignore their sexuality in a bout of celibacy. When she stumbles upon the diary of another high-born woman who once experienced a Shareem for herself, Talan decides she wants to experience one for herself. She just so stumbles upon Rees and the rest is a real sexual rodeo into the sublime...
The sex in this book was esoteric almost. It left me feeling high like I was the one being pleasured and both hands were on my kindle the whole time - I promise. The scenes were graphic - everything from the descriptive scenes themselves to the dirty talk that Rees was sinfully good at really did serve to drive you crazy. It was scary - I felt like Rees was getting in my head, too.
In a nutshell, the sex in this story is gratuitous. It was a real sex show. If you bought this or are thinking about buying this thinking that you're going to get some safe drawn out romantic love story - you might be disappointed. This one isn't for shy girls and I suspect the others aren't as well. Warning, ladies - the Shareem will leave you breathless!
