This is a retelling of Sleeping Beauty, but done in a more adult manner. If you are looking for an updated version with a lot of sex worked into the storyline then this is your book. I am always impressed when an author can make sex an integral part of an erotic story rather than it just being stuck in to get the label. Yardley does an excellent job of bringing those two things together. I just got Crave and Enslave and hope they are as well written as this one. She also writes great Chick Lit too!
