The 1967 Summer of Love never ended in the City by the Bay. It just morphed into the “play ethic” of the hyper-rich and upwardly mobile.

Introducing Aimée, a San Franciscan who plays by the rules – hooks up, no strings attached – until her bourgeois world collapses. Desperate, she must find a husband. A Mr. Half-Right will do, so long as he provides her financial security again. Matador, the pharmaceutical magnate who concocts the newly-launched female libido drug, Intomesee, exceeds all her expectations. His pharma-drugs give her passionate highs, but does she possess the je ne sais quoi to intoxicate him in the city, designer built for free love?

Intomesee: In Pursuit of a Passionate LifeLooking for a read that is both entertaining and makes you stay on your toes as you follow the maze of a plot? Want something just off the beaten path of literary offerings? INTOMESEE by Maha Erwin tells the story of Aimee, experimental drugs and her journey through a world where consequences are the furthest thing in anyone’s mind as free love, one-shot sexual intimacy are the norm.
Ms. Erwin barrels out of the gate with a rather cleverly written sex scene that is far from sexy or alluring but more like a slapstick comedy filled with self-centered individuals who attempt to ensure they get their “peace” of the pie. Only the untimely video chat with her eccentric relative is funnier until…the unspeakable happens.

Aimee is a mess, a woman in crisis. Her life is one chaotic episode after another, bad decisions, witty repartee, and self-denial as she bounces from one chaotic scene to another. Her supporting characters are hit and miss, personality-wise, but that only showcases what life is like for Aimee.

Prepare for less than smooth transitions, another plot ploy highlighting life as Aimee? From scenes of sexual passion, or lack of to scenes of deep introspection, this is a bold tale from an author who has a tale to tell, characters to bring to life and isn’t afraid to say, like it or not, this is my story and I’m sticking to it! Edgy, sometimes frustrating, but always intriguing, one MUST get to the end to reflect on the true genius of this tale. Not for everyone, but definitely something to look at! And how about that title, there are two ways to pronounce it, a secret message of the times?

I received this copy from Maha Erwin in exchange for my honest review.
