But one day Kate gets a phone call from the school and her life is forever changed. Kate suddenly finds herself desperately trying to pick up the pieces of Amelia’s secret life and get answers to explain the tragedy that took her life.

16166116

Fifty Shades of Grey readers, be on the lookout for The Story of X, an erotic adventure about conservative American student, Alexandra Beckmann, who meets the wealthy and terribly sexy Lord Marcus Roscarrick and is pulled into a world she never knew existed. Nice restaurants and exclusive events are only the beginning. Marcus seems to have another “involvement” that she never expected…He’s in a secret society which meets regularly for initiation rituals that include explicit sexual acts…Suddenly sweet, naive Alexandra is taking the first steps to join a sex cult…Can she really find happiness with this man who has chosen a lifestyle she must embrace if she wants to be part of his life?

If you like erotic literature and you’ve been looking for your next “Fifty Shades” experience, The Story of X, by A.J. Malloy, is an obvious next read. Like Fifty Shades, however, this novel is quite explicit, so if you are sensitive to anything rated higher than PG-13, you will want to avoid this novel. Also, being erotic literature, the plot is second to the description, so keep that in mind as you read.
