Keith is a technician in a simhouse—a place people come to for their government mandated, virtually simulated orgasms, who forms an attraction to one of his clients, Aiden. Eventually, Aiden tempts Keith to join him for wireless sex, beginning a clandestine, highly illegal physical relationship. While I enjoyed the story, so much of their bond was focused on physical contact that even when they start spending time together outside the wireless dens, there actually isn’t much written about either character. This lack of depth to either man outside of their jobs and their illicit sex lives makes them feel a bit flat and two-dimensional. This lack of character depth may be purposeful on L.A. Witt’s part, a way to showcase how personal development is stunted in a society where the government watches every move and mandates almost every choice that should belong to an individual, such as who you can procreate with and how many children you can have. If the wrong hobby can put you on a watchlist, it makes sense that the MCs are shells of real people, who only get stolen moments of expression in forbidden touch. Unfortunately, for me, this kept the MCs from being truly engaging on their own, but the conflict, storyline and world-building was great and overall it was an enjoyable read.
Imagine "The Island" meets "The Matrix". I loved the characters, the pace was just rigth, and the plot presented some interesting premises. The writing is great and the narration superb. 5 stars through and through. I would love for the story to continue.
