It's FREEEEEE! Get thee over to Ellora's Cave to read/download this story.
It’s Natalie’s ten-year high school reunion and she’s reluctantly joined the planning committee. Things start to look up, though, when she finds that Haley Moore is on the committee—and she’s even more gorgeous than Natalie remembered.
Ten years before, Natalie and Haley had experimented sexually together, but when high school ended, they went their separate ways. Their unexpected reunion finds them ready to make up for lost time, both in bed and out.
Yeah, skip over the fact that there's a man and woman on the cover. I discovered that all of EC's free reads have this cover, no matter what the content.
To my regular readers. I've been bitching like hell about all the crappy short stories I've been reading. You can see in my reviews that I get rather pissed off with spending good money, and in some cases a ridiculous amount per word count, on short stories that suck. Short stories that have no emotional connection between characters, but just disconnected sex many times.
Or, there's a nice connection, but it's just too incomplete with big old gaping holes, leaving me a bit dissatisfied.
I've reached the point where I'm very leery about BUYING short stories even though I do like shorter books due to time constraints and being a slow reader.
But then comes along this little gem written by Paisley Smith. And, even better, IT'S FREE!!!
This is what chaps my ass. Here's a perfect little short story that kind of has it all. It's a very hawt and steamy, but loving story about two women together. There's just enough background to get where each woman is coming from, how they feel about each other, and it's complete.
Even though this story is basically one huge sex scene with a little bit of background, I can really feel that these two women really want each other, that they have a need to be with each other. It's totally right for both and flows so smoothly. Nice characters, great sex, no big holes and a perfect wrap up. It's just one of those satisfying reads all around the block. And the sex, yowza!
So why can't a publisher offer these kinds of books more often? If I would have paid for this story I would have walked away feeling like it was worth it, unlike several I've read recently in which I felt ripped off.
Since I loved First Taste so much I'll pimp Paisley Smith's new book just out, Birthday Girl, which is available at Ellora's Cave. I haven't read it yet so I don't know if it's as good as First Taste, but I do have hopes since this is exactly what I love to read.
It’s Gemma’s thirty-second birthday. She’s not surprised when her gorgeous husband Nate whips out the blindfold and orders her to bend over for a birthday spanking. What does surprise her is that Nate has enlisted the help of a friend. Another woman!
Lindsey is a sexy Bohemian artist who has starred in Gemma’s fantasies for a long while. She doesn’t know what will happen beyond this single night of scorching sex play, but for now, Gemma fully intends to enjoy every new touch, taste, sight and sound her “birthday gift” has to offer.
