Three’s A Crowd
What the author/publisher says:
Connor Hughes is a lucky man. Janine and Sierra, the two sexy women who live downstairs from him have invited him to watch their intimate time in the bedroom. Connor is a willing spectator, but can’t believe it when Janine asks him to join in on the fun. Connor is drawn to Sierra in ways he’d never imagined. There is something very familiar about the dark-haired beauty that has him wondering why she calls to him.
When fantasy mixes with reality, Connor gives into temptation in more ways than one. Will he figure out who Sierra is to him? Can the feeling last all night?
What I say:
This is what I would call a one-shot, a short story that stands alone. It starts with the lead male watching his two neighbors go at it hot and heavy, wishing he can join in. The dominate female of the two agrees to share the other girl with him, and they start to get into it, Connor thinking he’s known the girl from somewhere.
It was all a dream.
It was a good little story where they jump into cock-talk in the first line and go from there. It’s very detailed and you can imagine seeing what the character sees. That being said, it’s rather short and there really isn’t a ‘story’ to it. It’s more of a scene out of something greater (that’s not a bad thing). I’d like to see the author expand on the dream beyond it being just a dream, and have the two main characters, Connor and his wife, actually put his dream into action, have them struggle with the decision, and ultimate all that would come from an open marriage.
As a one-shot, it works. No denying that. I look forward to seeing more of what this author writes, and have high hopes that there is more meat to the story. That being said, I don’t usually write about the price in the review but I do believe that this is more of a hook than an actual story, and it would be better served to have someone read this to buy a longer work. Being that this is the whole ‘story’, for the price I do believe that it is over priced (but I believe that it is the minimum allowed by KDP). Having read this as a hook, I would be greatly inclined to purchase the whole story, but being that this is all there is to it, I would be disappointed.
