The Towels: An Erotic and Sometimes Comic Tale of Lust, Discontent, Longing & Love by C. St. Sinclair is a sizzling romance with many twists and surprises, a book that explores the anatomy of sex and lust. This is a book for adult readers, and those who do not want to feel sexually aroused while they read should not start reading at all. Also, it is only fair to warn that this isn’t the kind of book to read in public. The title of the book captures its very essence, describing it succinctly. You won’t find anything other than that: lust, sex, discomfort and, perhaps, a semblance of love.
Meet Dev, a man who seems bored with himself and with life, who takes a laundry job in a hotel. Working the hotel laundry takes him away from the public, and perhaps allows him to keep his dirty secrets to himself. He gets irritated when a guest complains about late delivery of laundry towels. Things suddenly change when the shy and beautiful Agnes, the girlfriend of a hotel guest, calls. Dev invites himself for dinner and everything turns very rapidly into an intense sexual adventure, a sensual ride to a place of no return. Meet two strangers as they explore each other's emotional and sensual worlds.
C. St. Sinclair has a great gift for prose which features powerful descriptions of exploding sexual emotions. The sex is intense, and it happens a lot throughout the story. I enjoyed the depth of the characters. The Towels: An Erotic and Sometimes Comic Tale of Lust, Discontent, Longing & Love presents the finesse of erotica and readers will enjoy both the sensual intensity of the story, the humor, the exciting characters, and the storyline. What captivated me most was the strong writing; it is as seductive as the subject matter it speaks about.
