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.

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.

Book Review: ‘Becoming Emma’ by Ava Sterling

Title: Becoming Emma: A Robot Erotica Story

Published: 8th February 2018

Publisher: Red Lace Publishing

Author: Ava Sterling

Synopsis:

The perfect woman. Isn’t that what every man wants?

Alan’s been on one date after another, and none of them have worked out. Apparently being a scientist isn’t the most sought after quality in the dating world. He’s never had any inappropriate thoughts about the android he’s been working on at his day job. That is, until she starts flirting with him.

He programmed the unit to have lifelike qualities, but this was far beyond what he intended. Now the robot he helped create wears tight-fitting outfits, revealing robes, and tries in every way to catch his eye.

He considers himself a man of integrity, but there’s only so much he can take.

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

 

Review:

Goes down as another off my 2018 Bookworm Bingo Challenge – A book with a person’s name in the title.

An interesting story showing an awakening of a different kind with the introduction of a realistic female robot beginning to learn and want to please her master. Alan is soon slipping into the world of taboo and it doesn’t take long before curiosity, and his libido, takes the lead. Especially with Emma at the held, seemingly calling his nature to the front of his mind. So who is really teaching whom in this creator creation environment?

So Alan has been in a bit of a dry spell at the moment with either no date or boring dates, namely him being the one to bore them. Seems he is just too wrapped up in his work to talk about anything different, to the point of taking his work home with him. The work in question is the creation of a lifelike female robot that is being trained to do basic chores to see how much it can learn. Seems this creation, M537, takes learning to the next level when it starts to think for itself and wants to create its own identity. Namely be calling herself Emma. At first Alan can’t see any harm in this but seems to be getting a bit more concerned about her behaviour when she starts thinking for herself and craving affection between the two of them.

Seems Emma wants to please Alan, starts with calling him her master. He made her so, from watching TV and studying manuals he left on his computer, wants to show her appreciation and act like she thinks women do. Seems the manuals in question have Alan starting to panic as they were from his personal computer and more to do with looking at what he has been missing out on the last six months. The longer he has her in his place the more he starts to see her as a ‘her’ and not ‘it’. Worrying him to no end. Coming home from work and finding her waiting for him with a meal and trying to seduce him has his head spinning. He goes to sleep thinking about how easy it would be to have her instead of someone real. But that’s the thing; he is starting to see her as something real. More so when she wakes him up and his restraint just snaps.

Seems she is more than willing to demonstrate all she has learned and given her reactions she has gone above and beyond. Something he is very pleased about. She might even have some insights into why Alan is single in the first place. Seems taking his work home with him might have helped him out with what was troubling him. His bad luck with the opposite sex and his current lack of libido use. Two birds, one robot – let’s see where he goes from here and how much more Emma wants to learn and with whom.

Another fun quirky short read with a difference to get wrapped up in.

Book Review: ‘Satisfaction Guaranteed’ by Ava Sterling

Title: Satisfaction Guaranteed: An Erotic Massage Story

Published: 21st December 2017

Publisher: Red Lace Publishing

Author: Ava Sterling

Synopsis:

She’s never given a happy ending before, but there’s a first time for everything.

Dawn has had it with Anastasia. Ever since Dawn started as a massage therapist, Anastasia has made it clear that she’s the kind of boss who doesn’t take any excuses. In fact, Anastasia recently fired a girl for doing things to clients that weren’t exactly on the menu.

When Blake is referred there by a co-worker, Dawn finds an attractive man walking through their door. After Anastasia yells at Dawn for being late, Dawn can’t help but consider ways to get back at her. She comes up with an idea that would really make Anastasia mad, and it’s one where she gets to have some fun too.

Blake comes in for a massage, but ends up getting much more than he bargained for.

(This explicit, 4,600 word story is intended for adult readers only.)

 

Review:

Goes down as the first off my 2018 Bookworm Bingo Challenge – A short story.

Calm and serene into something a whole lot hotter. A massage that had a very happy ending for both parties involved, even without that being the plan to start with. Both seem to have a lot of fun and if Dawn’s mindset is anything to go by I don’t think the fun will stop there. Seems the thrill of being caught by her boss means she wants to have a little fun and Blake is not going to complain one bit.

Blake has clearly been feeling run down with of his job. Under stimulated means boredom is soon to step in. Seems with this boredom comes a need to do something a little reckless. Something like sneaking into his colleagues’ office and taking a drink of his bourbon. If Warren can get away with having some in his coffee then he should get some too. All good until he wakes up and catches him. With the fact he was asleep at his desk he really doesn’t have a leg to stand on work ethics wise. Seems he wants to help out with Blake’s boredom by giving him a card to a massage parlour that gave him a ‘special’ ending. His thinking that if one girl did it then the others might too. Blake at first has no intention on usually the referral card but you know that temptation is going to get the better of him.

Dawn loves her job but clearly hates her stuck up boss. A few minutes late and she knows she’s going to get an earful. Thankfully she is saved from it turning worse with the arrival of a new customer. One that makes her mind wonder into all sorts of interesting places. When its clear that he has been given a card and an impression of the types of massages he could get – being very wrong with the place – she decides to give him one on the house to apologize for the misinformation. Has nothing to do with the fact she really wants to get her hands on him. Seems he is a first timer so doesn’t know what he should keep on or rather take off – that being everything. A simple massage to start with when he is lying on his front but when the tent she creates so he can turn over to his back stays very much in the air after she drops the sheet back down her mind definitely starts to wonder more. Just what could she do to get her boss to go crazy and yell at her. I think she can think of a few things and Blake is more than happy to let her. He might be shocked by the turn of things to start with but they were heading in that direction the moment his body decided to have that kind of reaction to her magic hands.

Blake is happy to have his pesky knots taken care of by Dawn’s magic hands but its when they start to wonder further a field that he gets the true magic he has been missing, her too as its not just her hands that are magic. The thrill of getting caught and having to stay quiet and then not really be able to is what helps create a fun connection between the two of them. Not a lot of dialogue between the two but this one is more about what their bodies are saying anyway and I think they are going to want to continue talking for a while to come.

Book Review: ‘His Little Secret’ by Ava Sterling

Title: His Little Secret

Published: 18th November 2017

Publisher: Red Lace Publishing

Author: Ava Sterling

Twitter: @ava_sterling

 

Synopsis:

Julie’s husband has a secret.

While investigating what that secret is, she discovers Tracy and RJ, an attractive couple who know Greg, her husband, going back years. Greg hasn’t mentioned them before.

After meeting with Tracy, she gives Julie a kiss on the cheek goodbye. The impression of that kiss stays with Julie the rest of the night. In fact, it inspires her next move, which is to tell Greg to invite them over for dinner.

It starts out with the entree, but the four of them turn out to be dessert. When Julie first met Tracy, she never imagined she’d get to know her and her husband in such an intimate manner.

(This explicit, 4,300 word story is intended for adult readers only.) 

 

Review:

Short and spicy little read with this one where Julie’s conservative views on sex takes one hell of a leap into the taboo when she figures out her husbands little swinger secret.

Newly married and all should be well within the bedroom department but I think even Julie is feeling like Greg is holding something back. A secret she longs to uncover and with the fact that she is a reporter it seems she has the means to do so. Well her and her friend who is just as good at sniffing out secrets. It’s after a few misguided guesses that she finds the address of where her husbands’ secrets might be revealed.

Seems The Roundup is a discreet club where you can get away with all things a little shady and RJ might be the key. Well that’s what Julie thinks until she meets Tracy and gets a bit of a shock when informed on what her husband used to get up to. Just having his tales told to her is enough to get her pulse racing and it’s not long before she realises that it’s not just imagining her husband that has her intrigued. Seems he’s in for a bit of a nice surprise when he gets home later that day as she is all up for trying new things, he’s never led her astray before with something she couldn’t handle so why start now.

Might start out a little calm over dinner with the four of them but its not long before the fun really starts. It’s surprising that its Julie who seems to get the games started so to speak. I think it might have been the nerves and only when she let herself go with the flow she found she could escape her own head and just feel what, or rather who, was around her. Doesn’t take long for this party to go from naught to sixty on the hot-o-meter. One thing’s for sure they all get to have a happy ending on this chain of orgasmic fun.

Julie seems to have her eyes opened to another way of expressing herself and I don’t think for one moment that it will be the one and only time she shares her husband with another couple. Seems this is just the start of a lot more heated fun to come. Would be worth taking a look down the road to see what they get up to next time and with whom.

Book Review: ‘Tough Love’ by Ava Sterling

Title: Tough Love: A Spanking Story

Published: 10th June 2017

Publisher: Red Lace Publishing

Author: Ava Sterling

Synopsis:

Lingerie is Kate’s ultimate weakness. That, and spanking.

The spanking kink between Kate and Colin started years ago, and it’s only heated up since then. But with Colin away at a conference, Kate falls back into her old ways of overspending on lingerie. The lingerie is mostly a gift for him, after all.

The only problem is the budget and the credit card interest. As soon as Colin gets home, he’ll likely be upset, and what better way to dole out his punishment than bending his fiancée over his knee?

(This explicit, 4,000 word story is intended for adult readers only)

 

Review:

Another fun short read to get stuck into. Flowed nicely from the start and had a good pace throughout. Interesting dynamics with both Kate and Colin with how they reacted to each other. Giving the other what they needed, when they needed it. Might be a punishment for being bad but it soon turns into pleasure for both of them.

Kate has found a way to get the desired reaction from her fiancé if she does something that is a bit bad. Buying a lot of expensive lingerie without permission will do that, but she can’t seem to deny herself them. She loves the thrill of getting something new but I think its more that she likes the thrill of knowing she will be in trouble for it. Though she does think at the time that she has more time before having to face Colin. Seems his business trip got cut short and she is going to face the music sooner than she thought.

I liked that neither could seem to keep a secret from the other. It is the bases of their relationship to be completely honest with each other, no matter the consequences for Kate. She longs to please him in every way but can’t help reacting in certain ways to get the release she longs for – even if she has to be a little bad to get it. It’s about giving up control to the one person who loves her most. Control is something he has in spades as he can get her blood pressure to rise with merely a few words and a look. His too as you can clearly see he is just as excited to play their games as she is. She may get some tough love with her punishment but he sure finds a fun way to reward her afterwards for taking it so well. Something they both enjoyed and will continue to do so from now on. She likes the rewards she gets from being a good girl but you just know it won’t be long before she is a bad girl again.
