The Black Room: Door Two by Jasinda Wilder is part of a serial and definitely should be read in order. In comparison to Door One, Door Two goes much further, in an explicit sense, than the first installment. This part of the story explores menage–specifically, MFM and later MFF. The end of this installment turns dark rather abruptly.
As with Door One, it’s difficult for the reader to parse what’s going on. Door Two picks right up where Door One left off, but the woman (we still don’t know her name or who she is) goes through the second door in The Black Room, which leads to a very different type of sexual encounter.
Whereas the first door led to one man, door number two leads to two men and a woman, which leads to a menage (MFM) and later a separate menage (MFF). The second menage scene didn’t strike me as quite as meaningful for the woman as the first. It just seemed like something she goes along with, rather than chooses for herself. That’s not to say that she doesn’t enjoy the experience, but it felt a little unconvincing to me.
As I mentioned, the ending of this installment is quite dark, which I wasn’t expecting and which makes me a bit leery going into reading Door Three. However, it’s a cliffhanger and now I’m kind of committed to the story at this point, so I’m wondering where it will go from here.
