My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I received a free copy of this book, in exchange for an honest review.
This is a quickly read erotica anthology with 3 very short stories, all containing some kind of BDSM elements. Overall I would probably rate the anthology 2.5-3 stars.
The first story: Pretty Little Straight Boy, could have been a 4 star read, if not for the lack of length. The shortness of the story made it very rushed, and I lacked the emotions between the two. Stefan going from ‘ladies man’ to ‘I want to suck you’ without any delay was a bit too abrupt to be believable for me. 3 stars.
The second story: Making amends, I had issues with. Not due to one of the MC’s having sex with someone outside the relationship, but due to the circumstances surrounding it. I don’t mind dub con stories, but it put some serious doubts in my mind about the relationship between Jake and Allessandro, the way their dynamic worked made no sense to me. Being ‘given’ to another dom for service is not unheard of, but Jake didn’t want to. It gave him nothing, and he found no pleasure in pleasing his master this way either… Maybe it was again the lack of length creating difficulties, maybe I just needed more background story between the two? 2 stars.
The third and final story: Office Politics, could have been some seriously hot office porn with voyerism and exhibitionism thrown in, but it took a weird violent turn that didn’t really make sense to me. I enjoyed Kel and Peter together, but Dean completely ruined the story for me. 2.5 stars
All in all, it was well written erotica, and easily read, but when the kinks turn rough I need more depth of character than what I was given here. Would still recommend it for someone looking for a quick and dirty night cap with a rough twist.
