BOOK REVIEW: The Architect by Nikki Sloane

THE ARCHITECT is a steamy three-alarm inferno of hotness!

The Architect by Nikki Sloane

The third installment of the Nashville Neighborhood series is much more intense (and satisfying) than the two that came before it. THE DOCTOR and THE POOL BOY are great, but THE ARCHITECT is just... more everything

Clay Crandall is an architect who's not happy when a problem with a current project sends him out of town. Because his relationship with next-door neighbor Lilith is new and he's eager to make good on the designs he has planned for her, he proposes an unconventional solution to satisfy both of their needs until he returns from Jacksonville -- LONG DISTANCE PLAY.

And not your typical long-distance play either. Oh, no. Clay wants to watch and direct a friend to carry out his plans for Lilith in his stead.

"I asked Mr. E if he'd be interested in a temporary arrangement. He said yes."

I swallowed thickly.

"What kind of arrangement?"

"Until I'm back, he'll be me."


"I'll still control the scene, but it'll be remotely for now. He's agreed to fulfill the physical part for me. He's another way for us to play together."

Of course, there are a few stipulations. And, as you might imagine, things don't quite play out the way Clay originally planned...

I really loved the dynamic between Clay, Lilith, and Mr. E. It's such a unique situation that almost feels impossible to succeed, but Sloan somehow makes their relationship seem like the norm instead of an outlier. The writing is excellent, as always, but I will say this -- I think this might be Nikki Sloane's steamiest book yet. If you're at all familiar with her work, you already know that's really saying something.   


THE ARCHITECT is centered around a MFM relationship and features elements of BDSM (bondage and pain infliction, mostly). If BDSM is a trigger for you or not really your thing, this book is not for you.

For those of you that don't mind a little BDM (minus the sadism), you're good. Humiliation, degradation, and/or victims of abuse are NOT aspects of this story.

GENRE: Erotica
POV: First Person (Lilith)
