Consume by Nina Andrews


Alex is the Boss' number one girl at the Nyx Gentlemen's Club, and she loves what she does. Hot men, money, and lingerie are some of her favorite things about working at Nyx. Besides the passionate encounters, her favorite reward is the thrill of taking something from the men she lures. The unsuspecting gentlemen don't know what is at stake when they spend a steamy night with her at Nyx.

**Consume (Lusty Supernaturals 1) contains explicit content intended for mature audiences.**

My Review:
Throughout this short Nina provides her readers with subtle foreshadowing, leading us to wonder what exactly this story is all about. The protagonist, Alex reminds me greatly of a black widow spider, with her red signature color and her treatment of her lovers. Intermixed with this Nina has created an alluring seduction and a steamy sex scene. For those who like dark stories about sex, not unlike vampire erotica, you will probably enjoy this book as well.

FREE Story - Underneath the Gargoyle: A Prologue

As a thank-you to all of my fans, I wanted to share with you this FREE story, the prologue for my Underneath the Gargoyle series. It is also available for FREE download from Smashwords.
Underneath the Gargoyle: A Prologue
A FREE short story by Christina Harding
Copyright © 2014 Christina Harding. All rights reserved. Individuals pictured are models and are used for illustrative purposes only.

Marissa stares up at the gargoyles at the top of the church and frowns. She fumbles with her polaroid camera, frames one of the gargoyles in the viewfinder using the zoom function to get a close-up, and snaps a picture, her fingers going numb in the frigid cold air. I wish I had my textbook on gothic churches with me, Marissa thinks as she stands in front of the church, waving the polaroid and waiting for it to develop. Her eyes widen with excitement as she remembers she did, in fact, bring the text.

Still waiting for the photo to develop, Marissa sits down on the steps of the church, despite the fact that they have iced over, and flips through the pages until she finds what she’s looking for. There is an entire chapter devoted to this church with detailed photographs of its features, including the gargoyles. She finds a photo of her gargoyle, the one who looks like a dragon. He is sitting in a crouching position, as usual, and he is baring his teeth as if he’s about to exhale a ferocious flame of fire.

The polaroid of this same gargoyle is starting to come into focus, but his teeth aren’t bared. He’s crouching, but he’s staring almost peacefully off into the distance. Her heart racing, Marissa slips the photo into the text as a bookmark, and stands up to get another look at the gargoyle.

His teeth are bared again like in the textbook, but not like the polaroid she took just moments ago. What the heck? Marissa thinks. Trembling, she looks down at her polaroid again. How could this be possible? The gargoyle must have moved while I was flipping through my textbook! she thinks. She takes another photo of the dragon-like gargoyle, now baring his teeth, and then sets off, hustling to the university with a skip in her step.

“Professor John!” Marissa calls out to her thesis advisor, knocking on the door to his office. He opens the door.

“Marissa!” he says, sounding surprised. “Come on in!” he opens the door wide, and Marissa slips through. His office is warm and welcoming with a fire sparkling in the fireplace. 

“I have found some solid evidence to support my theory of cryptozoology.” she announces, excited and still breathless from running.

Professor John closes the door to his office and sits down at his desk, waving for her to sit down too. “What have you found?” He sounds eager.

“The gargoyle on top of the church,” she pulls out her two photographs, “I caught him moving today.” Marissa hands her photos to the Professor.

He adjusts his reading glasses and gives the polaroids a long look. “When did you take these pictures?”

“Maybe fifteen minutes ago. I came straight here. I took the photos only about a minute or two apart,” Marissa rushes to explain.

“You realize the implications of this are huge?” Professor John says, placing the pictures on his desk. “This could be a major breakthrough in the study of cryptozoology.” Marissa’s heart swells with excitement, but the professor continues, “You know, not everyone is going to believe the authenticity of these photos. To date, every picture of a cryptid has been debunked. How are you going to prove that your photos are genuine and that they were taken only within minutes of each other? Who’s to say they weren’t taken years apart and that the gargoyle was not modified?”

Marissa finds herself flushing; she was not expecting such a skeptical reaction. Stammering for a response, she asks, “Do you believe me?”

“I think, a girl such as yourself, should not sully her hands in such matters.”

Shocked, Marissa is speechless.

Noticing her vulnerability, Professor John continues, “It must have been hard to get here so quickly.” He looks pointedly at Marissa’s stretching belly. “When are you due?”

Marissa rubs her growing bump, finding her voice again, “In thirty-five days.”

“As it seems, a child out of wedlock will cast shadow on your moral integrity. You are going to need someone to support your claim, someone with credibility.”

“As my thesis advisor, can’t you…?” Marissa begins to ask.

“Oh yes, that would seem like the obvious choice, wouldn’t it?” Rising from his seat, Professor John rounds his desk and approaches Marissa, “That would require extra effort on my part. And so, I would expect extra from you in return.”

Hoping she’s hearing him correctly, Marissa eagerly responds, “Oh thank you, Professor! I would be happy to do whatever it takes!”

Professor John reaches up and brushes the hair on the side of her cheek. “I was hoping you would say that.” His hand traces down her neck and starts circling her breast.

Marissa tries to back up, but has nowhere to go. She tries to protest, “I love Matthew Cohen.”

“Even though he won’t marry you? He has left you for any man to take.” Professor John reaches up with his other hand and starts caressing both of her breasts.

“Matthew’s status with the church requires certain obligations.” Marissa futilely explains. She tries to squirm away from the Professor.

“None of this. Lay down on my desk now,” the Professor commands.

“No, and get your hands off me!” Marissa insists. She stands up and attempts to brush by the Professor, but he blocks her way.

“If you’re not going to play nicely, I can just get rid of your evidence,” the professor says, grabbing the polaroids off of his desk and holding them over the fire.

“No! Don’t!!” Marissa exclaims, lying down on the desk. “Please….”

“I knew you would come around.” Much to her surprise, the Professor grabs the elastic waist band of her maternity clothes and pulls them down exposing her to the office. Marissa tries to clench her legs together in a last attempt for modesty, but even as she does so, she feels her pussy start to tingle with expectancy.

The Professor pries her legs open and props them on his shoulders, one on each. Marissa feels the heat of the fire directly on her most private space as it starts to drip. Out of obligation, Marissa cries out, “Please don’t. I love Matthew!” even though her body is yearning for more.

Ignoring her pleas, the Professor zips down his fly and pulls out his swollen cock through the front of his boxers. Even though the skin around his potbelly is loose with middle age, his rod is still firm and hard, ready to enter this flesh which is thirty years younger than himself.  Professor John caresses Marissa’s youthful labia with the head of his dick, following the folds around her cunt. Marissa tingles as a rush of blood to her pussy makes her fully engorged. She moans.

The professor is still fully dressed in his suit, his pants hiked up around his waist. Just his pink, swollen dick is unveiled, poking out of his boxers from a mass of curly pubic hair. Meanwhile, Marissa is completely exposed from the waist down, and her shirt is starting to ride up over her swollen belly.

Smearing his pre-cum across her labia, the Professor observes, “I wonder how much you really love him. You seem to be enjoying yourself quite a bit.” He poises the tip of his cock right at the opening of her throbbing hole, entering her with just the head, wavering on the brink of her crevice.

“Oh please…” Marissa starts whimpering. But as she says it, she realizes she’s not asking him to stop, but actually begging for more. 

“Now tell me, what are you planning on naming your child?”

Marissa tries to focus, “If it’s a boy, we want to name him Kyle.”

The Professor enters her completely. Marissa’s vagina seizes with surprise, but releases with pleasure. She feels a gush of wet escape her pussy. “Kyle is a solid name,” the Professor tells her.

He draws slowly out of her, but then thrusts in again, quickly. Marissa shouts, “Oh, Professor John!” Her body shakes with pleasure, droplets of sweat forming on her pregnant belly.

Her baby has increased the pressure inside of her, making her tighter than she was as a virgin. Her toes curl as she revels in the exquisite sensation. She’s more sensitive than she’s ever been before. Maybe it’s the change in my hormones? she asks herself. Marissa can feel Professor John’s every movement as his aged, but rigid, cock rocks inside of her. “You are so tight,” he moans.

The Professor cups his hands around her belly and feels her baby kick. “Your child knows you aren’t being faithful to its father.”

Marissa feels the baby kick too, and tingling excitement ripples across her abdomen. She looks up at the professor and sees his face contort in pleasure, his bifocals sitting askew.

The professor reaches down and starts stroking Marissa’s clit. Her legs twitch involuntarily, and her body shudders.  Marissa grabs the edge of the desk and pulls herself towards her superior so that he can drive more deeply into her. The Professor grabs around Marissa’s legs with his free hands and bucks harder into his student.

All of a sudden Marissa, feels her orgasm coming. “I’m almost there!” She rolls her head back, “Don’t stop!!” The professor obliges, continuing to pump into her and rubbing furiously on her clit.

Marissa and Professor John reach climax at the same moment. She twists and contorts as the pain of a contraction mixed with the releasing pleasure of an orgasm emanates across her body. John clutches her legs to his chest as he shoots deep within her expectant body. He lets out a grunt of pleasure.

There is a knock at the door.

Abruptly both teacher and student are both brought back to the present. Before they have a chance to respond, the door opens and they hear, “Is everything okay Professor?” Then a head pokes through the door.

It is Matthew. 

His eyes go round as he takes in the scene in front of him.

Marissa stumbles up as best as she can with her baby bump. “Matthew, this is not what it looks like!”

Matthew’s face gets dark. “I saw he was inside of you. I know what happened here; there’s no need to say anymore.”

“No, Matthew!” Marissa insists, but Matthew has snapped the door shut. Tears start to stream down her face.

“Like I said, he’s left you available for anyone to take. And, there’s no need to lie; we both know you enjoyed it,” the Professor tells her, zipping up his pants. He casually picks up her polaroids on his way out of the office and tosses them into the fire. “Also, the cryptozoology of the gargoyles – that needs to remain a secret.”

Paddy's Girl by Maxwell Spanx


During wartime, Ethel and Paddy are just trying to survive. On day she is distraught to find out that he has enlisted to defend his country. She struggles to adapt to life by herself. Suddenly it’s not just falling bombs she has to fear, but a lonely heart, with plenty of soldiers looking to score. Will Ethel always be Paddy's girl?

My Review:
First and foremost, Paddy's Girl is a romance story. It deals with the heartache that women go through when their loved ones go off to war. While this is set during World War II, Paddy's Girl is a universal story that could apply to any lovers during any war. I think this short story will speak most profoundly to those who have somehow experienced this type of turmoil.

Kaiju Seduction 2: Valley of Monsters by Eden Redd

I want to welcome Eden back to this blog! On Wednesday I discussed the first book in her series, Kaiju Seduction 1. Today I'm going to discuss the second book on this series.

Science Fiction/Fantasy

Amazon Book Description:
Warning: The tale you are about to read is a story of inner most desire that knows no bounds. It crosses barriers and should be read with an open mind and a darkly passionate heart. This is a story of sexual creatures, human or otherwise. This tale is for adults 18 and up.

Ro Talon has finished GEK training and is now embarking on her first mission. Ro and her kaiju, Zulla, are paired up with another Kaiju pilot by the name of Tonya Blaze and her kaiju Ruby.

Together they must investigate a mysterious valley deep in South America. It is believed it may hold secrets to help fight against the ever present kaiju threat. Little do they know how just how dangerous this mission will be. Ro must fight against her training and unlock a deep burning desire she will not be able to control.

This tale is 6,800 words of hardcore kaiju sex, monster on monster lust, biting, clawing, and very dubious kaiju consent.

My Review:
I love when the second book in a series does NOT fall into the "sequel syndrome" (aka when the subsequent books are not as good as the first one). In Valley of Monsters Eden naturally builds upon the first book in this series and provides an equally enthralling story. She thickens the plot with regards to the sex as well as the story-line such that one does not out weigh the other. While this book does have a few typos, it is still an unique read within the overall erotic genre. For those who liked the first book in the Kaiju Seduction series, you will not be disappointed with this second book.

Kaiju Seduction by Eden Redd

I would like to take a moment to welcome Eden back to this blog! Last time she was here I hosted an author interview and reviewed her book Sexy Monster Wives

Science Fiction/Fantasy

Amazon Book Description:
Warning: The tale you are about to read is a story of inner most desire that knows no bounds. It crosses barriers and should be read with an open mind and a darkly passionate heart. This is a story of sexual creatures, human or otherwise. This tale is for adults 18 and up.

The world as we know it has changed. Kaiju began appearing, leading a march of death and destruction across the globe. Conventional weapons had little or no effect on these strange monsters. New ways had to be designed to fight the growing kaiju threat.

Ro Talon is a Kaiju pilot. Along with her 250 foot tall kaiju, Zulla, they must work together to bring down rogue kaiju. Their abilities go beyond normal combat for they are trained to fight with a different set of weapons. They fight with the skills of seduction for no kaiju can resist their temptation.

This tale is 6,700 words of hardcore kaiju sex, monster on monster lust, biting, clawing, and very dubious kaiju consent.

Excerpt: [source]
My name is Rosemary Talon, Lieutenant with GEK Special Forces but everyone calls me Ro. Sleeping beauty below me is Zulla, my very own kaiju. She had a long flight from Texas to Florida and I was spending quality time keeping tabs on her. I have only been a GEK pilot for two months and to say the experience was unusual is an understatement. Zulla and I were being shuttled around from base to base so we could train in different combat environments. It was essential training because when rogue kaiju attack, you had to be ready in almost any battleground. We were at the last stage of this particular training, marsh and swamp combat.

It was late afternoon and the heat of the day was in full force. Commander Frost, my direct report, thought it would be a nice change of pace if Zulla and I had the afternoon off. So here I was, watching my dear Zulla sleep while I tried to not think about anything in particular. It was the first break I had in months and it was nice to blank out for a while.

Zulla lay in a climate controlled hanger. She measured about 250 feet long with a strikingly feminine figure, her green scaly skin reflecting iridescent shine in the medium lighting. Her tail lay limply to the side. Her face was a smooth emerald color with small black horns protruding just below her hair line. I smiled again when I slooked at what everyone called her hair. Her head was covered in small, black cable like dreadlocks. It gave her a powerful appearance when she was up and walking around. But now, they just splayed all over the concrete floor as soldiers kept themselves from tripping over the ends.

In another life, I might have found it ridiculous that Zulla was wearing a bathing suit. Well, it was more like a bikini. The top brass insisted that male and female GEK’s must wear something to cover their naughty bits. It just wouldn’t do if air lifted GEK’s were flown over towns and cities completely naked. We had to think about the children.

The temperature was cool in the hanger and I could see Zulla’s nipples poking up through the large amount of fabric covering them. I would have to talk to someone about raising the temperature just a little so she could sleep better. I would be lying if I didn’t have affection for my lizard princess. During training they encourage you to develop strong bonds with your GEK. Much like dog training in police departments, you function like a unit to the point where you don’t know where you begin and they end. For the time you are together, you are family. 

My Review:
Wow! In just a short story Eden has crafted an incredibly unique world which (in my humble opinion) could be explored as a full length novel. Kaiju Seduction is giving us just one slice of this universe. When I initially started reading this story I thought perhaps is was not really an erotica; however, it did not take much time for me to realize this was not true. For those of you who like larger-than-life stories, you will find this is an interesting twist on the genre.

Prize for the Squad by Cate Troyer


College co-ed Jaime is also the head cheerleader at her small community college dating the star basketball player. When the bitter rivalry between the two collegiate teams sparks a bet after an argument between her boyfriend and the darkly handsome captain of the opposing team, the bouncy blonde finds herself the prize when her team loses. The terms? She has to service the winning team and boost their morale in her own unique way.

She could feel six pairs of eyes on her as she shimmied the skirt of her costume over her hips to fall on the floor. She kicked it away with a flick of her trainers. As soon as she started, the room fell completely silent. Jaime only had eyes for Chuck, through. He watched her, eyes heavy lidded and almost disinterested, as she began her striptease.

Her top soon followed the skirt into a crumpled pile in the corner. Jaime stood in front of the squad wearing only her plain white bra, the red panties that went with the costume, and her flat sneakers. She could practically smell the sheer animal desire wafting off the Wildcats and she felt an unfamiliar sliver of heat uncurl in her belly. She was used to guys wanting her, but she had always been untouchable. The geeks and freaks who had lusted after her had made do with the celibate, girly, perky hugs where she pressed her tits against them. When she became a cheerleader, she only chose the best, the star quarterbacks, the captains. Now, she was in a room with six guys who would spread her legs and use her instead of the other way around. 
It was incredibly hot.

About Cate Troyer:
I began writing erotica and erotic romance in 2012 for two reasons. 1 - I like to write and 2 - I like sex. I live in the midwest, just outside of Chicago, with my Sir and our pets. The summers are too hot, the winters are too cold, and a girl needs to do SOMETHING with all that indoor time... 

I enjoy writing and always strive to improve, so I can bring you the best stories with interesting characters and extremely steamy scenes. I think sensuality, like fine wine, is meant to be enjoyed by more than one person... And so I share my sensuality with you. 

I also love hearing from my readers. Please feel free to email me or sign up for my mailing list.

My Review:
Prize for the Squad made me cum three times! Now (as you guys can tell) I read a lot of erotica, so at this point it's saying something if one turns me on that much. I am also a big sucker for erotica which describes sex that may appear to be non-consensual (but the "victim" is actually enjoying herself).

Cate starts this short off by easing us into her story with consensual sex between an exclusive couple before upping the ante. Jaime is a career minded woman who understands what it takes to become a successful cheerleader, a trait which has lead her to be sexually frustrated by circumstance. However, Jaime's circumstance is shaken up by a bet, which frees her to finally satiate her desires.

Her Private Tutor by Anne Gatson


Amazon Book Description:
Part 1 in the Signature Required Series

A young collegiate's journey. An experienced tutor's struggle. Both are just beginning.

Josephine Devereaux has worked with the clandestine group, Camelot, for several years reaching out to young co-eds who want to explore their sexuality but who feel they can't do so publicly. While Camelot requires only the signatures of the individuals involved in the erotic activities, Jo has a different rule she has always held to: absolutely no attachments.

But when she sets eyes on Francesca deLouise, Jo can't help but feel her overwhelming need isn't just a scorching sexual craving- it might be the first crack in the only rule she's never broken.

This story contains: lesbian sex, oral sex, fingering, tribbing/scissoring, dirty talk, an innocent co-ed, tongues being used in naughty ways, and the need to reach between your legs as you read along. 18+

Length: Just under 10k words

Part 2, Her Cherry Tutor, available now!

** HER PRIVATE TUTOR is Part 1 in the Signature Required series and while it can be read as a stand-alone, it is part of a continuing storyline. **

Author Interview:
What made you want to write erotica?
Oof, there's no short way to answer this one! I've always been an avid reader of romance and the spicier the love scene, the better. I wasn't a huge fan of Fifty Shades of Grey but what I did appreciate about its phenomenon was that it made erotic content a little more mainstream, more acceptable to read and write. I've been working on some full-length series for a few years now (paranormal and contemporary erotic romances) and kept hitting snags so when an idea hit me for a F/F erotic series, I ran with it. Now I'm trailing after Jo and Fran, curious to see where they take me.

Anything you want to say to readers?
Um, first of all, if you took a chance on me with all the options available to you-- THANK YOU! Readers of erotica seem to get lumped into categories like 'perverts', 'kinksters', and 'smutaholics' and don't get enough credit for being readers like the rest of us. The only difference is that they're looking for more than one 'happy ending', so to speak. And also, I'm very open-minded and receptive to kinks and ideas for future installments of my lesbian series (Signature Required, currently out) and my straight/menage series (Lesson Plan, coming soon!). So if you have any requests, hit me up on Twitter and let me know what you're craving and I'll see if I can't wrangle my characters into making it happen for you. :)

Will you have a new book coming out soon? Can you tell us about it?
Yes, actually! Every month on the 28th, I'll be releasing the new installments for the Signature Required series, which follows Josephine, a woman who's made a career of no commitment but can't keep her hands or thoughts off of a certain co-ed, and Francesca, a young collegiate who's beginning to realize she can't shake how it felt to be sexually owned by her temporary tutor. On April 28th, HER CHERRY TUTOR, part 2 in the series, will be hitting ebook shelves:

A young collegiate's journey has begun. But how can she be sure it's her tutor she really wants?

Francesca never knew her body was capable of experiencing so much pleasure-- until Josephine Devereaux got her well-manicured hands in and on her. Now, she's left reeling from the revelation that she might prefer women and doesn't know what to do with the number Jo left in her hands.

A night that was supposed to be spent staring into the depths of her beer take a turn for the sexual when a fellow student picks up on her need from across the bar. With passions running high and the risk of fooling around in a public place getting her hotter, Fran can't help but wonder if the magic with Jo wasn't as electric as she remembers.

And some time in May, I'll be releasing the first installment of my Lesson Plan series, which will be hetero, menage, orgy and all manner of fabulous sexy combinations. *happy wiggle*

What makes your book so different from all the books out there?
I'd like to think that my version of erotica has a little more class than what you typically see. Don't get me wrong, I love the trashy and raunchy stuff just as much as the next gal! But in my erotica, there are undercurrents woven into the characters' thoughts and actions, forces driving them that can't be unveiled in a single installment. Yes, it's sexy and raunchy and has some filthy language, but at the same time it's sharp, concise, and meticulously edited. I don't put my name on anything I'm not proud to claim and the Signature Required series in particular is something I'm proud of because writing it took me entirely out of my typical writing element-- monogamous, heterosexual romance.

Also, having a series dedicated to lesbian erotic adventures-- well, maybe I've been looking in the wrong places but I've seen less of that out there than, say, monster erotica, taboo erotica, or even gay male erotica. I wanted to see some lady lovin' out there, so I wrote some. Lol

What was the process with getting the cover for your book? How do you like it?
The cover was a labor of love, let me tell you! I debated and debated over going with someone experienced in creating ebook covers. I had the money, I could afford it. But when I looked at the erotica covers out there, I was seeing a lot of cover art that looked like copy/paste projects with little to no recognizable branding, in addition to not really finding an artist whose erotica designs I could fall in love with. So I went off on a journey to create my own covers and it was a wonderful, extremely time-consuming process. I tweaked little things for hours on end using stock photos that I'd purchased the rights to, making notes in a 'how-to' file so I wouldn't forget how I got it to look a certain way, and shrinking them down to thumbnail sizes to make sure they were still recognizable.

Making the covers myself was also very inspiring for my writing process, so I feel like I won two-fold after taking on the endeavor. In the end, I'm quite pleased with my series of covers and can't wait to share them with everyone. If you have the time to fiddle around endlessly with options and the necessary patience to live through the perfectionist process I went through, I recommend using for a relatively easy-to-use online image editor. It's free and can turn out some lovely book covers, especially if you're on a strict budget and can't afford to have someone else do your covers for you.

What does your writing area look like?
I like to cuddle up in a corner of the couch on my days off from my other job and dive right into my laptop. I've trained myself to write without music because I used to spend ungodly amounts of time creating the perfect playlist for my stories and realized I wasn't getting any actual writing done. Procrastinator extraordinaire here, ladies and gents! In addition to my cuddly corner, I've got a mug of coffee on my side table in the mornings and a 1000mL water bottle once the coffee's done for the day. The drapes on the living window are thrown wide open to let in some natural light and away I go.

Goals for the future projects books?
I mentioned earlier that I plan to release one installment from the Signature Required series every month on the 28th, pretty much until I wrap up the series. Don't worry your pretty little heads-- I've got 14 mocked-up covers planned out so far so there's not an end for the foreseeable future. But I'm also going to be releasing one title from the Lesson Plan series every month starting-- hopefully!-- May. That'll be 2 titles from me available every month starting May with something for everyone. A little lesbian action here, a lot of menage action for my hetero freaks there.

 Is there a genre you could never write? Which and why?
I don't like to restrict myself but I think it is highly unlikely that I'll ever be found writing a sweet (no sex) or inspirational title. Not because I don't share the faith-- what? You think kinky writers aren't believers?-- but because that's not what I like to read or what interests me. Sex is a part of life. Kinky, get-down-and-dirty sex is hella fun. It makes our relationships messy and complicated and awesome and addicting and I love exploring those aspects. Sweet and inspirational romance strips away our most primitive urges and to be honest, it would be too difficult for me to write, I think.

When did you first start writing and when did you finish your first book?
My mom saves everything I've ever written and, as far as I can tell, I started writing stories on my own back in 1st grade. My first book was in 4th grade and it was about two killer whales, two dolphins, and various other sea creatures trying to solve a mystery about who was polluting the ocean. Spoiler alert: it was the Tigersharks and the Hammerheads, undersea gangs filled with unsavory characters armed with very pointy teeth. (I went through a looooong phase where I wanted to be a marine biologist. *grin*) No, there was no sex, but it was my first book. After that, I spent more than several years in the anime fanfiction circuit before I realized I wanted to write my own characters and stories instead of building off of someone else's.

 How do you market your work? What avenues have you found to work best for erotica?
*laughs uneasily* Yeah, I really haven't gotten around to pushing my books on people yet. My marketing plan right now is to build my backlist so that I have plenty of titles available for download and to occasionally talk about my titles on ULTRA-FAB blogs like this one and on Twitter. But really, I've seen other people market their titles and it seems to mean a non-stop barrage of "buy links" and there's nothing that turns me off of purchasing a book more than being spammed by the author-- so why would I do that to someone else? I'm still figuring this new gig out, but I'm hoping to find a nice balance between selling books and just being me.

Do you work with an outline, or just write?
Typically, I start with an idea or a scene with the characters. They like to come out of nowhere at me. I'll let that stew for a bit to get a good handle on who I'm going to be writing and then I'll draft a rough outline, nothing too detailed, just enough to give me an idea of how I'm taking the scene from point A to point B. Then I set fingers to keyboard and type. After I'm done with the first draft, I'll go back and look at that outline again and compare it against what I've written. I'll adjust the areas that need some tightening, cut a lot of crap out, and shine it up until I'm ready to share it. I'm a hybrid plotter/pantser. :)

Favorite quote from your book?
“My naughty, eager little girl,” I murmured between her labia, using my chin to press circles round and round her pulsing clit. Dipping down, I shoved my tongue as deep inside her snug channel as it would  go and speared her repeatedly, releasing my other hand from her thigh to roughly rub the pads of my fingers over her agitated nub. “Mmmm. Fuck my mouth, Francesca. Show me that you need to come.”

“Oh, my clit! Harder! Please—harder!”

Her desperate cry fueled my actions as I raised up on my  elbows and pressed two fingers in and up, the sweet noise of her wetness as I withdrew and fucked into her again making her entire body shudder.

I just love this visual. Josephine is pushing Francesca to use dirty language and shy Fran is so wound up that she can't help but go a little crazy. Sweet and sexy. My favorite. <3

My Review:
This book is essentially one long lesbian sex scene between an experienced dominatrix and a girl who is interested in exploring her sexuality. For those who like sexual encounters between strangers, you will enjoy this read. Also, this short story has a large emphasis on being accepting of one's sexuality. It portrays that sex is a fun, healthy activity. Her Private Tutor shows that is is arousing to be selfless and pleasure one's sexual partner. Overall, this book is an enticing read for those who like to read erotica that portrays sex in a very healthy image.

The City Pony by Roxy Katt


The City Pony is an erotic, comical, and unconventional pony girl story. Two women who work in an office building in Toronto (one an office worker native to Toronto, the other a maintenance worker from Alberta) keep meeting as if by chance and having odd, comical conversations. The subject, among other things, is horses, and this leads to a rather unusual outing involving a latex horse head.

     Next day, I drop by her office. You know, to empty the garbage can and all.
     “Somebody sent me a note,” I say, “down to the maintenance office.”
     “Did they now?” She is looking down at her desk, busy writing something on a pad of paper.
     “It said, ‘Whinny, snort snort.’”
     “Must have been from some sort of animal.”
     “It also said ‘Moo’.”
     “And?” she asks.
     “Well, that would be two animals. Presumably, a horse and a cow.”
     “A very silly cow I should think.”
     “Why do you think so?”
     “I mean, just to say ‘moo.’ What does that mean? Can’t she say more than that? Can’t she be more specific?”
     “She’s only a cow, after all. I suspect she was just seconding the words of her more eloquent friend, the horse.”
     “It stands to reason. Or maybe it was just a horse speaking in cow.”
     “A bilingual horse,” I say. “A true Canadian animal. What’s this?” I point to a half open cardboard box on her desk.
     “A present for Justine. A new horse head. It’s made of lovely black latex don’t you know.”
     “What’s wrong with the old one?”
     “She doesn’t have an old one. Just her human head. She’s never worn a horse head before. She’s worn bits and bridles and blinders and plumes and collars but never a horse head.”
     “This should be a new experience for her.”
     “I’ll say. She hasn’t tried it on yet. She says she’s afraid it will be too excitingly animal like for her. Too, too degrading.”
     I brought to mind the photo she had given me. “You know, a lot of people, including a lot of feminists, would say Justine has gone so far down that road she might as well put the head on and call it a day.”

Author Interview:
What makes your book so different from all the books out there?
There's quite a bit of comedy and wit in this (if it's okay for me to say so!) It's not your standard 30 pages of two people getting together and banging away. I'm all about foreplay in my work, the sexy interaction of developed personalities, the hints of what may happen, etc.

For those who might consider reading your book, what would you tell them to expect?
Something very different. The characters here are certainly engaged with each other on a sexual level, but the sex is not all in bed. The pony girl angle is unconventional too, involving a kind of public humiliation in a way one MIGHT imagine as actually possible.

Favorite quote from your book?
“What were you wearing under that?”
“Why, long johns of course.”
“With the buttoned flap in the back?”
“What else?”
“Naughty naughty.”
“I don’t imagine you wear them in Toronto, but out West the flap is for strictly
practical purposes.”
“I’ll bet it is. Naughty!”
“In the outhouse, I mean.”
“Even naughtier!”

Where do you get your ides/inspiration for your writing?
Largely my own perverted imagination. I do think certain strange things I saw in cartoons warped me as a child. That may account in part for the kind of vaudevillean or slapstick nature of my work. There is something cartoonish about it.

Is there a genre you could never write? Which and why?
I don't think I could right a simple romance story. My characters might sometimes have romantic potential, but I don't think I could take this far enough to write a work about life-long romantic love in the classic sense.

What books have influenced your writing?
Virtually nothing in terms of erotica. The fact of the matter is, I'm a little too kinky for most work to arouse me. That's one reason I guess I ended up writing my own. A work might contain one or two of my kinks but still leave me flat. And most of it is so badly written with nonentities for characters. But in so far as I sometimes have a film noir sense of dialogue, you might say Raymond Chandler has influenced me. I read a lot, but can't say there is much connection to my own work except in very indirect ways.

Goals for future projects? 
I've published a number of stories in major anthologies, some in hardcopy and some as ebooks. I'm in the process of getting these works up on Smashwords (and eventually, Amazon) as single story books.

What was the process with getting the cover for your book? How do you like it?
I have mucked about with this quite a bit. It's really very much a bother. I simply will not pay $100+ or something for a ""professional"" who will give me a cover exactly like all the other ""professional"" covers out there. These people have artistic skill way beyond my own, but they are largely boring. I have gone to sites like I-Stock Photos and bought the rights to some images, and I have tried drawing some of my own cartoon like images, and I have now developed a kind of ""template"" book cover I think I will just repeat. I think I am very much a niche writer, and once I am better known people will come for the words, not the pictures. Time and money are too scarce for first rate erotic images on the cover. I spend my time on the writing. 

What is the hardest and easiest part about being an erotica writer?
The easiest part is when the dialogue (and I love writing dialogue best) comes swift and sexy into your mind and it's just like bang bang, bang, one good line after another and you're writing them down. The hard part is letting people know what your work is like. I am like those bands you hear about who have a hard time promoting themselves because even though they may be outstanding, they don't fit neatly into jazz, or hard rock, or bluegrass, or whatever. There are various kinds of kinks that go together that make up my work. I can only describe it as "Strange Humiliation," if that's any help. I need to find more kindred spirit pervs.

Do you have any advice for aspiring writers?
Take any advice a writer gives you with a bag of salt. Try it out if it sounds good, but just because it works for some writers doesn't mean it will work for you. You need to be very independent minded to be a writer, I think.

My Review:
The City Pony is all about foreplay and seduction. A girl from the city initiates a sexual encounter with a coworker from the country, and doesn't quite realize what she's getting herself into. Roxy does a great job of surprising the reader, much like our country girl surprises the city girl... but I have to say, the city girl was asking for it. I would have liked to see Roxy use more narration between her dialogue so that I could keep better track of who was talking and get a better idea of what the characters were thinking. However, her  bare-bones writing did a great job of representing the rugged side of the country girl. If you are looking for a quirky, unique erotic piece, then this is the one for you.

Confessions of a Temptress by Scarlett M Flynn


a collection of seventeen erotic poems, celebrating flesh and desire.

My Review:
As I have said before on this blog, I am not the best reviewer for poetry. I don't know the different terms associated with it and I'm not terribly well trained with examining it. However, I did notice that Scarlett varied up the different poetry styles that she used, and each read as very fitting for the specific poem at hand. I liked how the poems progressed, building on themselves to create erotic imagery. Unlike the previous book of poetry I've reviewed, The Book of Real and Imaginary Girlfriends by Moctezuma Johnson, Confessions of a Temptress is more of your traditional poetry. And so, for those who like their poetry to have more structure, Confessions of a Temptress will turn you on :)

Moonheat by Richard Bacula

I would like to take a moment to welcome Richard back to this blog! Last time I wrote a review for his short story, Cornholed.

Paranormal BDSM

Amazon Book Description:
Chris and Amy's romantic weekend getaway to the deep forests is interrupted by a female werewolf in heat.

Warning: This 13,300+ word story contains very explicit sex, and should not be read by anybody under eighteen years of age.

Author Interview:
What made you want to write erotica?
I've always been interested in sex. I just found it fascinating on all levels: emotionally, aesthetically, technically, physically, psychologically... you name it. The ways in which a man and a woman can physically and emotionally unite through sex are effectively infinite, and man/woman is just one of many possible combinations or permutations.

There is only so much that one person can experience in life, and beyond that point is fantasy. My interest in sex is such that I don't think that it could ever be fully explored or satisfied in life, so it seems only natural to envision a wide variety of fantasies and hypothetical scenarios, then sharing those scenarios with other people through writing.

Did you always know you wanted to be a writer?
Effectively, yes. I mean, as a very young child, I originally wanted to be a mad scientist. I wanted to come up with crazy inventions like flying trousers, or invisible cars, or a robot army, or whatever.

By the time I was ten, though, I'm pretty sure that I knew that I wanted to be a writer. The problem was, I spent the next few decades avoiding becoming one.

I told myself that I wasn't imaginative enough, or that I wasn't skilled enough, or that I wouldn't make any money at it. Years flew by, and eventually life forced me to confront the fact that I was wrong on all counts. I have one hell of a vivid imagination, and I have quite a bit of skill at writing. The problem was that I was comparing myself only to the very top storytellers, instead of comparing myself to the average.

I'd read something like King's "Dark Tower" series, or like Stephenson's Baroque Cycle, and I'd think, "I can never match this. Why even try?"

At the same time, I'd watch average movie after average movie, read average book after average book, and I'd think, "Hell, I could do better than that, without really trying hard."

Over the years, it sunk in that, yes, I really could do better than that. I might never be the #1 writer in America, but even being the #100 writer in a specific genre (or #500) would be a very large honor, and that was something that is actually attainable, if I work hard enough at it.

What does your writing area look like?
It's a mess. To the left of me, on my desk, there are three stacks of books that I'm browsing or using for references. A stack of romance novels, a stack of technical sex guides, and a stack of writing guides along the lines of Strunke & White's Elements of Style. Then, behind my computer, are a bunch of other books that I intend to read for pleasure, when I can find the time.

On the wall behind my computer is a large chalkboard that takes up most of the wall. It's littered with notes, to-do lists, and random ideas.

To the right of my desk is a large bookshelf that's packed with books and back issues of Playboy. Behind me there's a rack full of swords and knives, and a cabinet full of random sex toys.

The rest of the room is filled with just a kind of general clutter.

 Do you have a day job as well?
Yes, several. Most people I know these days have to have more than one job in order to pay the bills; it's hard to find full time employment in this job market. These are often people with degrees, myself included.
I've never been too proud to turn down work; I have bills to pay. So I've always had a variety of part-time jobs, some of them more unusual than others.

I think it's a good thing, because it gives me a wide variety of experiences to draw on when building characters and settings. My late start at writing professionally will, at the least, allow me to create a wide variety of characters who have some occupation other than writing.

Do you work with an outline, or just write?
As a rule, I write short stories and novellas. I typically have some kind of mental outline that kicks around my head for months or years before it finishes gestating, before all the kinks are worked out of (or into!) the story.

Most of my stories are action stories. They're sex stories, where most of the telling is concerned with the specifics of sex. Plotting them is still important, and it still takes up a lot of my time and energy, but it tends to be less about things like, "Bill is in love with Marsha, but Elliot is in love with Marsha too. How should Bill and Elliot find out about each other, and how will they react?"

My plots revolve more around issues like, "Would Amy recognize the fact that the woman in the ski-mask who's going down on her is really her best friend in disguise?" or "If a female werewolf goes into heat, what exactly would she do to a male camper that she caught?" or "Why exactly would a woman have sex with a dinosaur, and how would it be possible for her to survive it?"

Not to mention a lot of stuff like, "His wife's using her mouth on him, and I've established that he's close to orgasm. So how and where does the other woman get involved? Does the guy finish in his wife's mouth, or does he pull out and try to cool down? Is he going to actually get to have sex with both of them, or just foreplay with one, and finish with the other? How many orgasms should the women get, and how?"
The "Oh, God!" is in the details.

What is the hardest and easiest part about being an erotica writer?
The hardest part? You're setting yourself up for any number of jokes there, but I'll refrain.

The most difficult part, for me, is getting people to understand that I'm actually a good writer. This isn't something that I'm just playing at for a hobby- this is something that I do, something that I'm good at.
People seem to think that erotica is a genre for hacks and semi-literates, and people seem to think that ebooks are a medium for more of the same. That, I think, is something that is going to change more as time goes by, but right now these are obstacles that I have to overcome.

The fact is, I went to a remarkable university specifically to study creative writing and literature, and I earned my degree.

Another fact is, people try to write of sex as something that is juvenile, or something for bored, lonely housewives, but sex is perhaps the strongest drive in nature; it's something primal, powerful, and it's something very serious, even when it's fun.

Erotica is just as legitimate of a genre as anything else is. We just haven't had our Stephen King yet; we haven't had a writer with the sheer skill and output to thoroughly demonstrate that he could write whatever the hell he wants to, and he could do it well, but he chooses this particular genre because it's as legitimate as any other.

That's one of my goals, I think. I'd love to become the Stephen King of erotica. I probably won't make it, but I'll at least give it a good shot, and I'll try my best to pave the way for the next man or woman.

What was the best writing advice that someone has ever given to you?
I wish that I could properly attribute the advices, but I don't remember exactly who said it, or in what context. It was something that I picked up in school, from an instructor, but I don't recall if he was speaking for himself, or quoting somebody else.

Likewise, I most likely don't remember the exact quote.

It was something like this:
"Any writing technique that interferes with communication with the audience, fails."

That's something that more writers need to remember, because I see people get hung up on themselves all the time, and it interferes with their writing. I have a tendency to do it myself, which is why I found that rule to be such good advice.

Sometimes a writer wants to do something fancy, but in doing so, they lose a lot of their readers. That's no good- the entire point of writing is to be able to put certain thoughts directly into the heads of people you've never met, people who just picked up your book and started reading. If you can't put the thoughts into their heads, then you're failing at your job.
Other times, a writer receives feedback that something in their book is vague, or unclear, even though the writer feels that they have spelled it out sufficiently. The writers' ego is usually such that they feel like responding along the lines of, "Well, it's not my fault that you're too stupid to understand plain English. I'm not going to dumb things down for you."

Again, though, the writers' job is exactly to communicate. If the readers get lost, then communication isn't being achieved. Even if the writer is correct that the reader in question is stupid or unclear, that doesn't really matter. A writer's job is not to communicate with only an elite few, not unless he/she wants to corner a particularly small niche of the market.

A writer has to be able to communicate with a wide selection of readers, of people with a staggering variety of personal experiences, of people with varying areas of ignorance and of expertise, and even people with differing levels of intelligence.

If a writer is not able to communicate their visions effectively, then they're really not doing their job effectively. Period.

What was the process with getting the cover for "Moonheat?" How do you like it?
I used the Kindle cover generation program, and picked an image of the moon. I don't like it.
I'm not an artist, though, and I currently can't afford to hire a good artist for my cover work, so my options are rather limited. Most of my cover art looks like crap.

I have an artist friend who has donated his time and talent for a couple of my covers ("An Innocent Haircut" and "Satisfied By A Stegosaurus"), but he has his own bills to pay, and can't afford to spend all that much time giving out freebies for a friend. Those covers look really good, but the ones that I've done myself are barely better than nothing.

The story doesn't necessarily lend itself to an easy cover, either. There aren't that many ways to depict a naked, six-breasted female werewolf, not that would meet Amazon's rules for acceptable cover art.

 For those who might consider reading "Moonheat," what would you tell them to expect?
Sex. Lots and lots of sex.

I'm writing erotica, so I'd expect that to be something that readers would anticipate, but I want to make it very clear, because of the two Amazon reviews this story has received so far, one of them is as follows:
"No real character development. This is simply one very long drawn out sex scene. I really love a hot steamy romance with hot steamy sex...but this just isn't it."

I'm not sure what the reader was expecting, really. The description of the story is simply:
"Chris and Amy's romantic getaway to the deep forest is interrupted by a werewolf attack.
Warning: This 13,300+ word story contains very explicit sex, and should not be read by anybody under eighteen years of age."

I have no idea why the reader was expecting a lot of character development, nor why they were expecting "hot steamy romance."

The only thing that I promised about "romance" is that it would get interrupted by a werewolf attack, and I delivered on that.

I don't feel that any of my characters in that story are exactly two-dimensional or anything. The main character certainly seems fleshed out quite a bit more than many short-story characters are, especially since it's not a character sketch: it's a sex story.

I'm not generally one for writing thousands of words about characters making moon-eyes at each other, followed by a thousand words of sex. When I read erotica, I prefer the amount of time, energy, and description that the author puts into the sex scenes outweigh that which is put into the setup for the scene. Consequently, that's what I write.

Incidentally, I do take some exception at the description of the story as "one very long drawn out sex scene." It's really three long, drawn-out sex scenes. At 99 cents, I consider that to be a bargain.

Favorite quote from your book?
I think that my personal favorite passage is where Chris discovers one of the perks to having sex with a werewolf:
"With human women, Chris had always felt the need to hold back. His enthusiasm had carried him away too many times, and he’d slammed the head of his cock into his partner’s cervix, causing her pain. Or he’d pounded her too hard, too fast, and hurt her. With human women, he always had a certain level of fear, fear of hurting his partner. Oddly enough, with this frightening she-beast, that was one fear that was entirely gone, and Chris reveled in it. He could truly cut loose, do whatever he wanted, without any realistic chance of hurting his partner.

She was taking him, all of him, taking him to the hilt, to the very base of him. He could feel his cock occasionally bottom out in her, depending on the angle of penetration. He felt his cock hit her cervix a few times, but she didn’t even seem to notice. She was a werewolf: invulnerable, bullet-proof, cock-proof.

It would be quite something to be able to completely unleash oneself during sex, to be able to drop every bit of concern for one's partner while being assured of their complete safety. No need for restraint, or for safewords, or for the fragility of human flesh."

My Review:
There are a couple of unique elements in Moonheat, which really stood out to me.

First of all, Richard does not spare a detail in describing the werewolf. I've read only a handful of paranormal erotic stories, and most of them seem to gloss over describing the paranormal animal. I feel cheated whenever authors do this. However, I felt far from cheated in Moonheat.

Second, usually the paranormal creatures that I see in this genre are male. But, Richard changes things up a bit with this novelette by making his creature female - how refreshing! I thought it was really interesting seeing how the dynamics changed when a paranormal female was having intercourse with a human male.

Richard clearly enjoys varying up his writing by using colorful language and changing up the rhythm of his sentences to match the mood he is looking to create. I can tell that he obviously puts a lot of thought and consideration into his writing. Additionally, I've had the pleasure of chatting with Richard, and he noticeably feels a sense of responsibility while writing his erotic tales. He wants to write stories that will entertain and arouse while at the same time presenting healthy sexual fantasies. I must say, Richard hit the mark when he wrote Moonheat.

Triangulum Stain: Attack of the Replicating Alien Dildos by Moctezuma Johnson

Welcome back Moctezuma! Last time I reviewed your book of erotic poetry, The Book of Real and Imaginary Girlfriends. You shared with us an original poem, and I hosted an author interview. It's nice to have you back for Triangulum Stain: Attack of the Replicating Alien Dildos!

Science Fiction

The government is on the scene. MIBs have been dispatched. Freak Force Five is on its way in a supersonic jet. Why? There is an agent in the air from a capsule returning from space. It is an extraterrestrial agent that gets into men’s liquid. That's right. When a man ejaculates he creates a monster. Today, in Beaver Lick, Arizona, when a man finishes, he falls into a deep sleep and the liquid stain turns into an living, moving silicone-made sentient Alien Dildo that preys on young women so they can asexually reproduce. Triangulum Stain is a story about how a team of scientists created to stop outbreaks long before this agent lands in Arizona, a few civilians who found themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time, and some super-trained female Women in Black, each with a peculiar and amazing skill. They each try to stop this erotic alien takeover of Earth. Will they survive or will they all be sexed to death? Finding out is a fun thrill-ride. The story is Michael Crichton meets Mika Tan. It is the new one from Moctezuma Johnson.

About the Author:
Call me Moctezuma!

It is rumored that I crawled out of a New Jersey sewer in 1975. Since those chic beginnings I have lived in Kuala Lumpur, Mexico City, Quetzaltenango, Caracas, Hat Yai, Bangkok, Seoul, Hong Kong, and Phnom Penh. I love reading good literature and I love good porn, so my writing mixes the two on the porno-literary tip. Walk down the back alley and see what I have to offer. You will not be disappointed with the deep, emotional filth my mind projectiles onto the page.

My Review:
This erotica has a good sense of humor, enhanced by Moctezuma's rugged writing style! We all know that men have two heads - one above the waist and one below the waist. What would happen if the head below the waist did all of the thinking? Or if the one above the waist was irrelevant? During Triangulum Stain we get to find out! This may be just about one of the only times when a man will cower from a horny woman.

Moctezuma gives his readers a full view of the alien attack by weaving multiple story lines together. He also varies up this short by providing his readers with important information via a couple of different formats. Additionally, I could see Moctezuma's talent with poetry shine through due to the graceful pros within this book.

With all this being said, this is simply a well-written, humorous erotic story, intended for our entertainment!

The Degas Girl by AJ Adams

I want to take a moment to welcome Adams back to this blog! Last time I hosted an author interview and reviewed her book The Maid in the Cupboard, which she wrote under a different pseudonym (but the cat's out of the bag, so I can share that with you guys!) 


Serenity Bishop is a work of art. Her skin a canvas, decorated with the scars of her evil captor’s twisted abuse. But her tormentor, Angelo, is about to lose control.

Zachary Schiavelli is an art thief and forger. His handsome face is merely the mask that hides a cold, calculating man whose own childhood of abuse has honed him into a remorseless killing machine.

Zachary is about to take an intense disliking to Angelo.

Sometimes you need to fight fire with fire.

In a violent tale of mob rule where violence begets violence, an unlikely alliance between two forces of nature is about to change the face of organized crime. When Serenity and Zachary collide, it’s an unstoppable force meeting an immovable object, and everyone around them is about to get caught in the crossfire.

A complete novel with no cliffhangers.

A violent tale of mob rule and dark romance. Warning contains explicit scenes of dubious consent, graphic violence and sex. Adults only.

He wore jeans and a turquoise T-shirt. The colour made his eyes look blue instead of green. I wasn’t fooled by his looks and his gentle ways. This man had a will of iron, and by the way he looked at me, I could see he was just as determined to control me as Angelo. He just used his tongue instead of his fists.

I’d go along with it, because anything that kept me out of the hole meant I had a chance to escape. I’d pretend to be docile, and as soon as he fell asleep or took his eye off me, I’d make a run for it.

He looked me over, frowning slightly. Suddenly I wondered if he was changing his mind. Maybe he wasn’t going to let me eat. Maybe it was a game. Maybe he’d show me the food, and then tie me up and leave me to starve while he stuffed his face. I was trembling at the thought.

Adams has been so kind as to offer to sponsor a giveaway!! Happy Entering!!

My Review:
First and foremost, The Degas Girl is a mafia novel reminiscent of The Godfather. Actually, I shouldn't say that because I haven't read The Godfather, but I have seen the movie. After watching one mafia film and then reading this mafia book, I am now convinced that the best way to tell a story about the mafia is through a book. What was greatly lacking in The Godfather film was readily facilitated in The Degas Girl: the ability to get inside of the characters' heads to understand their motivations.

The Degas Girl is a fascinating story that I literally couldn't put down! I was awake until 4:30 am reading it and only went to bed when I realized I was falling asleep while reading. While this book does have its share of erotic scenes, it has an intense violent drama going on as well. An intriguing dynamic of this story is that Adams switches back and forth between telling the story from Serenity's and Zachary's point of view. These two characters are constantly trying to "get ahead" of the other, and so it's fascinating to have more information than either of them. Adams smoothly transitions between telling this story from both the male and female perspective in order to create a fascinating drama.
