A Baumgartner Reunion

Veronica and T.J. Mayer have been happily married for 7 years, but there’s something they haven’t done. When T.J. suggests adding others to their sexual relationship, Ronnie is at first hurt. She wonders if she’s not enough for her husband. But she’s also turned on by the idea. She remembers a summer spent with the Baumgartners, as babysitter and lover to Mr. and Mrs. B.
When the opportunity arises for Ronnie to spend two weeks with them again, she’s at first nervous and scared and sure she’s not going to take them up on the offer. T.J. however convinces her to go for the first week by herself, and he’ll join her for the second week.
Ms. Kitt has written a highly erotic novel that involves lots and lots of hot steamy sex. The sex ranges from standard to same sex to group sex. All of the scenes were well written and challenged the standards most of us live by. Just how important is sex in life and in love? That’s something we all have to figure out for ourselves. And the answer isn’t the same for everyone. Something Ms. Kitt demonstrates very well in this work.
There was one aspect of this story that didn’t sit well with me though. That aspect was the incestuous thoughts of the brother toward the sister. For me, I don’t think incest is ever sexy or intriguing or good. And that includes simply thinking about that kind of thing. To me there are lines you don’t cross. Sex (or fantasizing about) with a direct family member (parent, child, sibling, grandparent, aunt/uncle) is just wrong. But that is just my opinion.
Aside from that I really enjoyed this work and found the characters genuine and real with real fears and insecurities and enough love and trust to share. The plot was well written if slightly predictable, but not so bad that it didn’t keep me interested and reading till the end.
Special Notes:  This is an erotic work and should be read only by those over 18 years of age. It also contains graphic scenes of sexual situations some might find objectionable.

Book Blurb for A Baumgartner Reunion

Ronnie (or “Veronica” as Mrs. B always insisted on calling her) is all grown up with a family of her own, and the Christmas she babysat for the Baumgartners is just a pinpoint in her memory. That is, until a persistent suggestion of a threesome by her husband, T.J., brings it all flooding back. When she reveals how the Baumgartners and the nanny, Gretchen, had seduced her during her time in Key West, her husband takes it upon himself to make some phone calls. Opportunity, or perhaps fate, presents itself, and Ronnie and her husband get an invitation to join Gretchen and the Baumgartners on their vacation. Ronnie finds herself torn, once again, between what she wants and what someone else wants for her - or are they, after all, one in the same?
