The THC - Under a Gibbous Moon by Manoj Jain

Another erotica of 2016, both from the same author. I reviewed 'The BNO - Sex, Life & Hookah' by Manoj Jain. Two months back and decided to avoid erotica. When I saw 'The THC - Under a Gibbous Moon' I thought book would be different than Manoj's debut work. But from my point of view THC is also an erotica. The reason I finished and gave 3-start is the Holistic Center and its description.

Blurb of the book
"Now look at the person in the mirror and tell her that you love her." Sanjaneka stared and stared, unable to utter the simple words aloud. Why is Sanjaneka unable to love herself? What past is she running away from? How does an Uber ride help Samar to save his marriage? Why does the dull moonlight of a gibbous moon trouble Varun so much? Three lives. One Utopian centre.The Total Holistic Centre (The THC) welcomes the broken and those looking for closure through its doors and works its magic to return them to the world fulfilled. This is the story of these three troubled souls who seek solace at the centre, indulge in its unusual treatment and find the cures to their ailments in surprising places.A book on loss, longing and changing circumstances, The THC dives into uncomfortable topics that are usually swept under the rug: fragile relationships, deteriorating marriages, addictions, impotence, and the delicate bond between fathers and sons. Welcome to the THC
Three complete stranger Sanjaneka, Samar and Varun who were in their late forties or early fifties met in Holistic Center. Apart from their physical problem they were in Center for psychological problems. Sanjaneka was scared of sex, while Samar had impotency (due to age); and Varun was depressed due to social rejection. Books covered good insights on how a holistic center should be. Center was able to help patients about their physical problems but psychological issues they have to work on it on their own with help. 
Each character had complex sexual relations reason behind their psychological disorder. These relations were covered through out story. While sharing or retelling or writing down those incidents gradually help them to break from their problems. An average read for adults. Talking about ratings:
