An Unexpected Return by Jessica E. Subject


Looking to experience all the universe has to offer, Prince Aristides escapes from the kingdom of Tyto and travels through space to the Emerald Planet, Elatia. He yearns to partake in the activities the planet is famous for, and fulfill all his sexual desires, but loses his heart and soul to an Adamos apprentice. Unfortunately, she is Terran, and her people are sworn enemies of those from Tyto. If he can convince Xia to give up her dreams of becoming an Adamos, and travel back to Tyto with him, will his parents accept her, or condemn them both?

Abandoned as a toddler on Elatia, and raised by Kalara, an Adamos specializing in erotic massage, Xia decides to follow in her footsteps. But she remains conflicted as to whether she wants to service clients for the rest of her life, or settle down and raise a family. When she meets Aris, he turns the tables on her, and brings her as much pleasure as she gives him.

Will they have their chance to be together, or will their families tear them away from any chance of young love?

Reviewer: Dolce Amore

Aristides, the Prince of Tyto, didn’t want or need his betrothed so he  sets her up with Benignus, his friend, who has craved the woman for more  than two years. Thereafter, Aristides flies to the planet Elatia to  receive sexual pleasure from the revered Adamos. 

He wanted to experience every sensation before he settled down with anyone, if, of course, he found someone he could love.
  Xia is studying to be an Echelon Four Adamo, Mistress of the Sensual  Arts. She reaches level Echelon Two and is given her first appointment,  but realizes that she wants something different. She wants to please  only her future husband, if someone could possibly desire her.  

  She meets Aristides, her appointment, and Xia knows that the desire she  feels for him is impossible. He is Otarian and she is Terran, rise in  Elatia, and they do not mingle. Yet, sharing pleasure night after night  makes her soon fall in love with Aristides and when they face his  parents they discover Xia’s true identity. 

As much I enjoyed Ms Jessica E. Subject’s previous book, Satin Sheets In Space, this book left me disappointed. I was expecting more.  The storyline was routine, full of clichés and with almost no  futuristic elements in it. The characters had little depth; Arisides,  too, comes off as a jerk with remarks like: 

This is what you’re paid to do   

he says as he addresses Xia when they first meet. 2 stars.
