La Cucina: A Novel of Rapture by Lily Prior

La Cucina: A Novel of Rapture - Lily Prior

The majority of this story was fairly well-written, though some of the sex scenes got a bit silly. Towards the end though, around page 207 or so out of 263), everything sped up way too much. A million things happened, and all so close together, and it was rather disappointing after the book had gotten off to such a good start.
