Well-researched as far as I can tell, immersive setting and a couple of noteworthy sex scenes, but the dealbreaker for me was characterization. I wanted to care about the leads, but I felt like I never got to know them. I was "told" why Phaedrus should appeal to me as a reader and make me root for him, but it wasn't organic. The supporting characters seemed to arbitrarily exist as the author needed them and otherwise fade into irrelevancy. The plot hinged on the main characters falling in love and the difference between love and lust, but lust called love was what it delivered.
As a purely erotic novel and not a romance, though, definitely worth a read!
