Ever since she was struck by lightning while trying to rescue her cat from a storm, Crystalline hasn’t been feeling herself. It’s safe to say that the urges she’s experiencing when she’s around hospital worker Joe and neighbor Jack are completely new to her. Deep down, she knows something must be wrong for her to have these wanton reactions, but she is desperate to keep the strange blue dreams that have been haunting her ever since the lightning strike at bay. Hot, hard and frequent sex with two gorgeous, more than willing men seems to do the trick. Joe and Jack are willing to see where things will lead with their little minx, but can they accept all that Crystalline has to offer? 

The characters in Transference are all genuine and likable, and interact very well together. The author’s style of writing suits this genre, making for an enjoyable read. It was refreshing to follow a plot that was a little out of the ordinary. It seemed to dare me to just let go and imagine how good it would be to give in to my more basic desires. The sex scenes were very animalistic and satisfying, but the overall storyline did seem a bit anti-climactic and lacked substance. However, the author did a good job of showing Crystalline’s inner turmoil as she tried to figure out what the changes she was going through would mean for her future and the way the world would view her behavior. Joe and Jack were nice enough guys, treating Crystalline very well, but I would have liked to see a bit more character development for them.
