Open to Persuasion by Allie

Open to Persuasion is a well written, long SVU fic that has Alex and Olivia finally admitting their feelings for each other. Well, it doesn’t happen immediately. There’s some murder and child porn cases that need to be solved and criminals brought to justice, too.

All in all, I did enjoy the story. There were very few typos, although we did have some victims’ last names change mid-story, which is one of my pet peeves. The plot was good, the sex was hot, and there was angst to make it complete. With that said, there were a few things that I was disappointed in. I thought the crime investigations and prosecutions could have taken a more prevelent role in the work. They, initially, were just as important as the changing relationship between the detective and ADA but, toward the end, they faded into the background more. Since I thought they were an interesting part of the overall story, I wished they would have stayed more of a focus. The ending itself seemed sort of abrupt to me. Almost like the author just wanted to wrap it up.

I still recommend the story, though. It was easy to get lost in and I did feel a connection to the characters. Give it a try.
