Sex for Peter was never a problem, neither in book 1; if I remember well, his main issue was for Lucien to be a vampire, not for them to share their bed with other companions. So sex is still not a problem, but I liked that the author chose to start and end the story with a sex scene that was exclusively between Peter and Lucien, as to highlight that yes, they are the real and steady pair of all the series. Truth be told, Peter can come out like “slutty”, since he basically shares his bed with whoever he likes, but that was him also in the first book, and I think this is his nature; and in the end, I think that Lucien liked him exactly for this reason, for his “freedom” towards sex, Peter likes sex and sex is a healthy and good way to express his joie de vivre.
The main issue between Peter and Lucien is instead that, even if Peter is sharing the bed with most of the members of the coven, he is not really one of them; Lucien is refusing to turn Peter, and in doing so he is alienating him from the coven. The coven can accept Peter as Lucien’s bedmate, but they are not willing to accept a human as their master. I liked that the author didn’t choose the easy, and fast, way to resolve this contrast, but she preferred to give to Peter the chance to prove himself to be worthy of being a leader, even without being turned to be so.
