Book 2 of the Jim Mellon Story by Wolf is a continuing look at personal relationships in general and Poly-amorous relationships specifically. Wolf explores issues of trust, openness, honesty and the importance of communication of expectations that apply to any relationship. There are a lot of ups and downs within the story that may be too dark for some but are a necessary part of the story.
There is some material that may be offensive to some readers so read the codes carefully. Drug use in the story is a necessary part of the storyline and shows the ugly side of drugs and why some people fall into that destructive lifestyle. Incest in many forms between adults is displayed in both books. SO when reading codes please note there are a few shades of squickiness that may let some read the story that might not otherwise.
All in all I found the story a great look at the issues we all face when dealing with relationships. What happens when we do not communicate, refuse to deal with issues or any one of a number of other relationship traps and pitfalls that we all seem to fall into.
There is lots of sex described graphically, some of the sex moves the story forward while other descriptions could be skipped.
Overall I greatly enjoyed the story and often looked forward to the next installment being posted. I will also be looking forward to any other stories that Wolf graciously decides to share with us.
I have opted not to use the number ratings and only offer a written review. I hope that you still find my reviews helpful despite the lack of a numerical rating. As always, feedback is always welcome.
An appropriate and pleasing end to the Jim Mellon duology. If you don't read Road Trip first, this is going to make less sense than you want it to.
Much of the end is glossed over, letting time go by by sayign it does, rahter than showing it. Too many names to remember. It gets darkets, but at least there's a dawn.
Wornderful, well rounded characterizations. Interesting characters, from the protagonist to the nameless dunde who drives the rented limo. Beautiful ending.
The Last Call:
If you have any interest in romance, polyamory, sex, or sexy romantic polyamory, read this. Seriously, read Road Trip, then if you think it's OK, read this.
