Virtue & Vice (Spicetopia Book 2)Virtue & Vice by Phoebe Alexander
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A great read about dreams. Katya and Moon are on holiday in Greece when they meet Cyrus and Jolie. Whilst there, they come up with the idea of an adult theme park called Spicetopia filled with everything you could want. They part ways and return to normal life, thinking it will never happen. But Cyrus Sweet seems determined to make it all come true. Can dreams ever become a reality?
A great read. Well developed plot with twists and turns. Well developed characters like Katya cautious but loving underneath or Moon as more exuberant but worried underneath.
I loved the visual detail throughout the novel like with the islands with the blue waters and white sand and green palm trees as beautiful and sernee and so vibrsnt and vivid it’s as if you’re actually there. Or with the Starlight Cay on the island shaped like a star for the sense of homely but exotic. I also liked the contrast with the colourful island and the boring drab offices as conflicting worlds wonderfully written.
The switch of perspectives worked well to display both sides of the story and was easy to follow with names in chapter titles. I also liked the idea of the sequel shifting point of view form the original by focusing on other characters which was a great idea. Overall, a great read and I would give it five stars.
