Publisher's Summary

"Enjoying pain with your pleasure is something you either get, or you don't. If you get it, then you don't really need it explained, because you know how good it feels, and if you don't get it then no amount of talking is going to convince you it makes sense."
But sometimes you have to explain the unexplainable, especially if the love of your life needs to understand, or she'll leave you. Jason Schuyler is one of Anita Blake's best friends and favorite werewolves, with benefits. J.J. is his lady love, an old flame from childhood who dances at one of the top ballet companies in New York. She's accomplished, beautiful, and she's crazy about him, too. Neither of them wants to be monogamous, so what could go wrong?
J.J. is enthusiastically bisexual, with an emphasis on the female side of things. She plans to keep sleeping with women, because Jason can't meet that need, just like she can't meet Jason's need for rough sex and bondage. J.J. doesn't understand why Jason isn't content to go elsewhere for a need she can't fulfil, so Jason asks Anita to help him explain.
Anita is having her own relationship growing pains with her only female lover ever, Jade. Jason suggests that J.J. might be able to help Anita with her girl problem, while she helps him with his kinky explanations. With some encouragement from a few other lovers in Anita's life she reluctantly agrees, and J. J. makes plans to fly into town for an experience that none of them will ever forget.

How the mighty have fallen...

What would have made Jason better?

Anyone that has followed LKH this far knows the struggle that readers have gone through in hopes that the Anita Blake story line would return to it's former glory. This short story embodies everything that has gone wrong in the series. Whinny relationship story lines. No detective work. No good vs evil. SPOILER ALERT: It's nothing but a couple of hours of lover complaints and overly graphic group sex. Anita whipping out her metaphysical phallus to make sure everyone knows she's the best at everything, even girl on girl... The story of Anita is lost and as a early fan of the series I'm disappointed.

Laurel K. Hamilton: High Priestess of Polyamorism

"Jason" accounts for 4 hours and 44 minutes of my life that I'll never get back. I tried to think of something positive to say about this book and I have come up with nothing. LKH has quit writing adventure stories and completely moved to badly written therapy-porn. If you enjoy amateur sex therapy with clinical descriptions of mechanical sex with multiple partners and no emotional involvement or plot, dive on in. Even if you can stand pure plot-less porn, just be prepared for the sex to stop frequently for lengthy, boring rationalizations and lectures on the benefits of multiple partners. It's somewhat ironic that LKH explains ad nauseum the joys of polyamorism while simultaneously demonstrating how boring and empty it is.

This is the first time in years of listening to audiobooks that my overriding thought was sympathy for the narrator. Not even Kimberly Alexis could save this story but I do hope she was paid well. Simply Awful.
