Leah Collins is a sexual gymnast, a brilliant athlete poised to compete in the Mexico City Olympic Games of 2112. She takes pride in her advanced skills in the sexual arts, but performing Courtesan's Treat and Raging Volcano in front of thousands of cheering fans is no easy task, especially when sexual malfunctions threaten.

At her side, a pillar of strength and compassion, is her best friend, Benson White. He is the one who scrapes her from the ground when her self-destructive tendencies surface. Benson is a talented sexual gymnast in his own right, the other half of America's Darlings. They hope for a gold medal. What neither of them expects is to fall in love.

Inside Scoop: This book contains a mixed-gender ménage, girl-on-girl, references to male/male sex, group sex, voyeurism, exhibitionism and everything else you'd expect from a society where sex is a game.

AMERICA'S DARLINGS is innovative and fun, what with the inclusion of a new game into the Olympics--sexual gymnastics. I have to applaud the author's imagination and creativity.

Leah Collins and her best friend Benson White are America's Darlings, and they're competing in the Olympic Games of 2112. They have a high chance for the gold, but betrayal comes from unexpected places...

Leah comes across as immature, but that may be the result of her condition, which caused everyone to have to "manage" her. She's an innocent (naive may be a better word) who enjoys sex, but she did exhibit some growth in the course of the story.

As this is an Exotika stories, which focus on the sexual journey or adventure, there wasn't much romance or romantic development between Leah and Benson. However, we can see that they are indeed soul mates, for the way they talk to each other without words, and the way Benson knew her and anticipated her needs. In my opinion, there was a bit too much sex scenes, as I skipped a couple toward the end.

Overall, it is an interesting speculation on the future of sex as an Olympic sport.
