"Tonight, my love, the choice is yours," Andrew Campbell tells Isabelle as they ride through the streets of Whitechapel to select a prostitute to join them in bed. Her choice: Franny, a pretty young girl hesitant to go with the genteel couple with Jack the Ripper on the loose.
Yet the lure of money and food is too strong for Franny. Before long, she is in their bed...with Andrew and Isabelle fulfilling their promise to take Franny to the height of sexual ecstasy.
But once their pleasure is complete, Andrew and Isabelle have another surprise in store for her....
Jill Sorenson's review—
I’ve never read any f/f/m erotica, unless you count the stories they publish in men’s magazines. I was looking for a full-length f/f novel, but I came across this cover on Twitter and it caught my interest. Five minutes later, I was reading it on my computer. Thirty minutes after that, I was done. I’m a fast reader.
This is a short story, and definitely erotica, rather than erotic romance. There is no character development or plot. A married couple picks up a sweet young prostitute on the filthy streets of Whitechapel. They take her home, where she’s given a meal, a bath, and a thorough debauching in their bed.
The story is all sex. Most of the action is girl-on-girl with the husband watching, but he eventually participates. Many possibilities are exhausted and orifices are filled. Because it isn’t a romance, I can’t complain about the lack of emotional depth, but I can say that I found the scenes a bit rushed. A little build-up would have been nice. More kissing and sensual touching would have gone a long way. Even so, I enjoyed the physical descriptions of both women and thought the sex was hot. Their interactions are consensual, the writing is smooth, and all three participants have a fine time.
Something really weird and unnecessary happens at the end, but I won’t spoil it.
That’s about it! I don’t understand the grading system here, or what constitutes “vanilla” sex. I’ll give this story a kind B- and call it explicit.
