The day I left Japan, I stared at my reflection in the mirror in the airport ladies’ room and made the following vows: I would never tell another lie, especially to myself. I would never let desire overwhelm common sense. I would never sleep with a man who was married to someone else, mime fellatio with a complete stranger on a stage, or take money for sex again. In fact, to cover all bases, I would never have sex again with anyone, man or woman, for the rest of my life.

Lydia, a blond, blue eyed American is in Japan looking to seek out the exotic whilst feeling disconnected from her family. She enjoys sex, has her own little fantasies, but as she gets older and more dissatisfied at how her marriage (to a Japanese man) and her life are going, she finds herself searching out more and more satisfaction in sex, but rarely finding it.
The story is good, with Japan being a “different” enough setting to keep the reader entertained and not skipping ahead. The erotica scenes are……not for the faint hearted or the prudish, but are more on the “safe” side of things.
