It's been a while since I read the first one, but I recalled that I loved Didier and I remember thinking his relationship with Caroly was odd, but oddly perfect. This is the first of the vignettes that follow, and it's in Didier's POV which was definitely interesting. I felt like the title had a dual role: describing the role playing Didier and Caroly participated in as well as Caroly's pushing Didier to get out of his house more. And it was very nice to get an inside scoop on how Didier really feels for Caroly. There was an inkling of what she meant to him at the end of Curio, but it was expressed through Didier's thoughts in this one. Short, but a nice continuation of the story.
