Title: A Fair Swap: A Swingers Story

Synopsis:

They have an arrangement with another couple. Swap once a month.

Alexis and Richard have been married a long time–long enough to know what it’s like to be stuck in a rut. The same thing, the same night of the week, the same position…just everything the same. They sorely needed something to spice up their marriage. Then Aaron and Rhea walked into their lives.

Being a successful venture capitalist, Aaron has more than enough wealth and gravitas to impress, but Alexis soon finds out he has equally impressive moves in the bedroom. Once they start swapping regularly, Alexis can’t wait to see him again.

Now in a fancy Italian restaurant, Alexis finds herself in a familiar predicament: wanting Aaron but having to wait until they arrive at one of their houses for the fun to begin. Fortunately for Alexis, Aaron intends on enjoying her even before that point.

If you enjoy steamy stories of swingers, married couples, sharing wives, and sharing husbands, you’ll love A Fair Swap.

 

Review:

Goes down as another off my 2019 Bookworm Bingo Challenge – An erotica romance. Another fun, sexually charged, short erotica read. This one has a more complex feel to it as we are clearly coming into the dynamics of the wife swap a few months in. So everything is still new but there is no longer the nervous energy around them all. More like getting totally adsorb in the swapped partner they are each with.

Alexis and her husband Richard were clearly in a bit of a rut and wanted to spice things up. It is never said how they came about with this unconventional, but fun, arrangement, more that you are taken right into it while they are waiting for their friends to appear at the restaurant. The sexual tension is almost building at that point and when Rhea and Aaron make an appearance it just keeps getting higher. As soon as they arrive, after the hellos, it’s like a straight swap happens then and there before even getting to the table. Luckily they are in a booth, as neither couple can seem to keep their eyes, hands and minds off the other. With the tension building you know that dessert won’t be had at the restaurant but more like an extra treat with their swapped mate.

Aaron seems to have a way of making Alexis’s heart rate increase with the mere suggestion of what he wants to do to her. More talk like that and she might have mounted him right there in the restaurant. Talk about putting on a show. Dinner over but can they make it back to his place before things get too heated? Well you know the answer to that pretty quickly. The moment that they got into Aaron’s car it was like a ticking time bomb for when something was going to come to a head. A parking lot seems to be the best place to stop to take the edge off. They sure can work up a sweat and steam up those windows. Also seems that giving Alexis the idea of what her husband and Rhea might be up to takes her own pleasure to the max. She almost wants to out do them. I wonder whether they compare notes?

Both partners seem very in tune with each other but we follow the exploits of just Alexis and Aaron. Though from the vibe at the restaurant you are probably thinking that both couples are up to the same thing without being able to wait a moment longer. Seems only meeting once a month builds a lot of sexual tension and wanton need that needs to be released. I wonder how long it will take them to change that system to a few more times or maybe even have a swap and watch one. With something that Alexis comes out with Aaron might take her up on that – a ménage soon on the cards perhaps?

You get some heated action within this one and you can clearly see that this monthly swap is going to continue for a while to come. Maybe next time Rhea could be the one that is followed so we can see just what Richard is like when he takes charge. Interesting group dynamics with this lot and one that would be fun to follow up on.

Book Review: ‘Tension Relief’ by Ava Sterling

Title: Tension Relief – An Erotic Massage Story

Published: 15th August 2018

Publisher: Red Lace Publishing

Author: Ava Sterling

Synopsis:

Jen always aims to please.

Working as a massage therapist, every day has its ups and downs. Sometimes she swaps dares with her friend Roxy just to pass the time. The subject that often comes up in these dares is men.

Jen knows a dare is coming, which is why she doesn’t find it odd when she receives a call out of the blue from a deep voice asking for a mobile massage appointment in his hotel room attached to the spa she works in. She jumps in with both feet. She doesn’t want to be the one to lose, after all.

While she’s setting up the massage table in the client’s hotel room, she thinks he looks familiar, but it doesn’t come to her until after the appointment is over.

 

Review:

A silent dare request by a friend that leads to giving a massage with a very happy ending for both involved. Magic hands needed all round to work out all that tension that both seem to hold.

So Jen has a bit of a wild friend who likes to take the lead and lay down some dares in the past to get Jen out of herself a bit. Kiss a random guy at a cinema no problem but to hook up with someone she was clearly crushing on in college she bailed on. Could another dare end up countering the first? If her imagination is anything to go by she needs it to be soon.

Both Roxy and Jen work as therapy masseuses at a hotel and lately have been getting quite a few sports players in, lots of muscles for them to work over. Though it seems Roxy has been getting more than Jen. Well that is until a client of hers, J.T., calls asking to see if Jen is free instead. Seems in Roxy giving him her number it’s also a silent dare that this time Jen doesn’t want to back out on. Well given how high her own tensions have been lately you can see why she might want to take on the challenge.

The moment the door opens she feels like she needs to pick her jaw off the floor and when he says ‘you need me naked right?’ I think she might actually need to fan herself down. The massage might start off innocent enough, well her actions might be innocent, her thoughts not so much. It doesn’t take long for that to change after hitting just the right spot on the table when leaning across all those muscles to get to some oil. Now dealing with his back is one thing, I mean he can’t see her reactions, but when he turns over I think things go from hot to an inferno with the tent he seems to hold up with the sheet. Safe to say he likes the massage she is giving and that’s just when things take a more interesting turn. She needed to talk herself into the dare at the start but the moment she sees the reaction she has on him there isn’t much that will stop her from jumping right up on that table with him – not that he minds one bit when he gets his hands on her too. She might starts things off but he sure knows how to take the lead and bring things to a climatic ending for both. All I’ll say is that is one sturdy table that can take the weight of them and what they were doing. I mean how many positions can you think of getting into on such a small surface? They could give you some pointers on not falling off too!

Another fun, fast, hot read that will keep you wondering just how wild things might get in the future. I think J.T. is going to be requesting Jen on a regular basis. Even from all her questions she couldn’t place him until the end. When she does though she needs to say a very big thank you to her friend Roxy. She clearly knows how to help a friend out.

Book Review: ‘Taught a Lesson’ by Ava Sterling

Title: Taught a Lesson: A Soroity Story

Published: 1st August 2018

Publisher: Red Lace Publishing

Synopsis:

She joined the sorority Sigma Delta only because her mom was in it when she was in college, which has turned into a tradition Violet can’t escape. Not that she minds being around a group of beautiful college students, especially considering the “experimentation” she and her female friend did growing up.

A mystery develops as she comes to find out that one of the women has been sending dirty pictures to a female user in a chatroom online. Someone else is into women in the sorority house, and Violet is determined to find out who.

She hatches a plan to find out, and it turns out to be a more pleasurable process than she imagined.

 

Review:

Well that’s one way to try to flush out an answer to a burning question Violet seemed to have. One everyone involved seemed to like a lot!

To be in a sorority house there has to be rules and standards to hold. It seems that if your mother donates a lot to the college though they can go out the window. Well that’s how Violet explains it to her friend Janie when she comes to see her in said sorority house. It seemed to me that Janie was the type of friend that liked to bring back memories to get Violet a little hot under the collar. I think she had a feeling of what Violet was thinking as soon as she brought up all their ‘practice sessions’ they used to have when getting ready for all their future boyfriends. I think she clocked on to how Violet may play a game to get what she wanted, especially when she got a little distracted by her scantily dressed sorority sisters. Well she did say Violet’s the reason why they got so good so maybe she thought Violet could do a bit of practicing on someone new.

Violet and her sorority sisters don’t really seem to get along. Lucy being the one in charge that, most of the time, seems to rub her the wrong way – well that might be about to change! After another heated talk about how Violet should not borrow her clothes she threatens to put her ‘flat on her back’ if she tries it again. Now after having memories of past ‘practices’ with Janie being brought to the front of her mind this statement kind of gives her a few ideas. More so when she finds out what someone in the house has been looking at online. This brings an idea to mind about having a little fun and getting the answer to who that someone might be. Thing is she doesn’t just want to test out whether it is just Lucy but also include Caroline and Nikki too. Things are about to get very interesting when this plan is put into action. A ménage a quatre is on the cards perhaps?

You have an interesting mix of characters with this one. Seems this house of sisters like to play games and aren’t afraid to get a little creative – arms, legs everywhere. Lucy is definitely the leader of that sorority house, what she says usually gets done. Caroline and Nikki just seem to follow suit but really it’s not like they hold up much of a fuss, as they seem to like what they are being told to do. Violet is just, finally, being pulled into the fold. She may actually feel like a true sorority sister now. I think her time there is going to go a lot smoother than before.

Book Review: ‘Whiskey and Water: A Menage Story’ by Ava Sterling

Title: Whiskey and Water: A Menage Story

Published: 6th March 2018

Publisher: Red Lace Publishing

Author: Ava Sterling

Synopsis:

Amber looks the part.

She has on a tight shirt that hugs her chest and a pair of shorts that shows off her legs. She even has her black hair in curls so it falls down her shoulders in soft waves that bounce when she walks. She’s the quintessential hot bartender. The only problem is, she hardly has anyone to serve.

Carla changes all that when she comes in from the rain for a drink. Within minutes, the electricity cuts out, and the place goes pitch dark. With nothing else to do, they decide on a dare. If Amber can drink a whiskey shot without making a face, she wins. If she loses, she has to kiss Carla.

It starts off with a playful dare and ends with Carla’s boyfriend, Jack, coming in to check on her. Considering what he walks into, it’s understandable that he’d want to join.

(This explicit, 4,100 word story is intended for adult readers only.)

 

Review:

Oh the fun that can be had when all the lights go out. Inner desires start to come to the surface and it’s almost like the darkness gives Amber the freedom to try something she may never have before because of it.

Amber lives in a state of boredom whenever she is at work when the weather is bad as it keeps the customers away. What good is a bar without anyone to serve? There are only so many times you can clean down the same surface, but with a camera and boss always watching she needs to at least look busy when he views them later.

The middle of a storm sure brings forth a force of nature – that being in the form of Carla. What starts out as a simple conversation soon turns into a whole lot of fun when the lights cut out. Whiskey and water to start things going but you can tell early on that Carla is checking Amber out, something she isn’t used to by female customers – well not that she knows of anyway. A dare is set while they are in the dark. If she can take a shot of whiskey without making a face she wins, if she loses then she has to give Carla a kiss. From the moment the burn starts down her throat Amber knows she has lost and soon turns into a very shy version of herself. Seems she just needed a little encouragement to start things off because it doesn’t take long before the burn of the whiskey is old news with how hot things get.

Magic fingers and tongues to keep things entertaining between the two but why have the fun stop there. The bar is still technically open and from the moment Carla mentioned that she had someone coming to pick her up you knew they were going to appear at some point. They just got quite a show in the meantime when they did.

Seems Jack is used to his girl playing the field, as she likes to share her conquests. Seems it doesn’t take long for him to be invited to play and from that moment on the heat just gets higher and higher until none of them can really take it anymore. Talk about being claimed in every sense of the word!

Fun times in the dark for all it seems but what happens when the lights come back on and reality sets in? Namely a certain bar camera! Passion to be repeated down the way perhaps – maybe whenever there is a storm coming in they will show up hoping a black out will soon follow. Seems Amber finds she likes the whole being shared thing; she just needed to get the right people, which she may have done.

Book Review: ‘On the Prowl’ by Ava Sterling

Title: On the Prowl: A Cougar Story

Published: 21st February 2018

Publisher: Red Lace Publishing

Author: Ava Sterling

Synopsis:

Patty has never tried being a cougar before, but tonight feels like a good time to start.

The only bad thing about having summers off is the boredom. She loves being a professor, but the months off can seem to go on forever. Her new housemate Rhonda, acquired after Patty’s divorce, provides some entertainment by bringing home male eye candy from her nights out at the club. Patty can’t help but feel a little jealous.

Patty could attract a younger man if she wants to. Just last semester, a college student named Kenny gave her his number, but he was too shy to follow it up with asking her out. If there’s anything Patty’s learned that summer, it’s that she can’t always wait on someone else to make the first move.

She calls Kenny and invites him over. It’s time for Patty to take what she wants.

(This explicit, 4,200 word story is intended for adult readers only.)

 

Review:

Goes down as another off my 2018 Bookworm Bingo Challenge – An erotica romance. I liked the flow of this one, had a good fun pace to it with Patty’s inner desires being awoken by her new carefree, wild roommates lifestyle. In turn making her want to take a chance on a missed opportunity with a younger guy she used to teach.

Rhonda is clearly a woman who has had enough of waiting around for a guy so is determined to go get them when the need strikes. From only being a roommate a week and having a new guy most of them Patty is thinking that there is something she is most definitely missing out on. Her confidence needs a boost and it looks like it’s going to get it.

After being kept up most of the night with Rhonda’s latest antics she is taken back to a moment where her teacher ethics almost went out the window. She had moments when younger guys would try to hit on her but none of them ever made her think twice. That was until Kenny. He was shy but made her feel things she thought she had forgotten. Giving her a book when he left her class was the last moment they were together. A book that happens to have his phone number in and temptation is never more at hand when she goes in search for it. She just hopes that he remembers her. Or more importantly that he was as into her as she thought.

Seems after a few tips and clues into how and why guys seem to fall under Rhonda’s spell she decides she is going to take a chance to see where it leads. Where it leads is somewhere very fun for both involved. It doesn’t take long for Patty to get the grips with her cougar role to take charge of what’s to come and turn her shy younger man into a bit of a wild beast. Seems Kenny didn’t really seem to mind finally getting what he had only wished for. Something both seem to be very happy with if the end result is anything to go by.

You quickly get pulled into the story and get a feel for the characters and their lives for a moment in time. Could this be the start of something new with Kenny, or maybe a new way of life in general, either way it looks like Patty’s inner desires have been ignited again and she doesn’t look like she wants them going out again any time soon.
