Review

ThreeStar

The idea behind this short story was great. However, it fell completely flat for me.
Dana knows that Nicola wants Lee and that Lee wants Nicola but neither are doing anything about it. So she decides to be the one that makes it happens.
However, I didn’t understand her need to sleep with Lee to make that happen or her reasons for really wanting to be the third in the relationship. She is content for Lee and Nicola to have a committed relationship but her being sort there because Nicola likes to see Lee sleep with other women and she wanted the opportunity to be with Nicola.
The way the characters acted was hard to believe there was really any true feelings for each other. The sex wasn’t written all that well either.
Not to mention the BDSM that was thrown into the mix like it was a side thought. Neither of the ‘doms’ acted like doms and the ‘sub’ wasn’t submissive but for one scene.
Sadly, I was happy that the story was short.

AuthorBio

Amy Valenti is a tarnished tease, and her mind has lived in the gutter since the day she realised what sex was. She hails from England, which she doesn’t find quite as exotic and sexy as the average US citizen seems to, but if people want to compliment her on her accent, that’s all fine with her! Her muses are many, fickle and very demanding.

She has a degree in creative writing and currently works as a proofreader/editor. In her free time, she reads, writes and plays videogames. On the rare occasions she doesn’t have a laptop on her knee, she loves to curl up with friends and pets – and chocolate – for TV show and movie marathons.
