Wendy the Super Librarian‘s review of¬†Erotique: Carrie (Erotique Story #1) by Susan Lyons
Erotic romance short story ebook released by Spice Briefs 1 Jan 10

Sometimes an ending can completely ruin an otherwise fine story, and sometimes it’s the ending that totally makes the story.¬† This first story in Susan Lyons’ Spice Briefs trilogy is an example of the latter.

Carrie looks like your average suburban soccer mom.¬† However every few weeks she hires a babysitter, gets dressed up in very un-mom-like attire, lets her hair down and hits the private sex club, Erotique.¬† Erotique is very exclusive and caters to a myriad of fantasies that range from casual flirting to BDSM.¬† Carrie doesn’t stray too far to the wild side, but she knows tonight she wants passion.¬† Hot sex, with a hot stranger.¬† She finds her mystery man, dressed like a riverboat gambler, downing a fine brandy, and he’s more than willing to show her a good time.

To be blunt, this is a fairly conventional story featuring some hot, vanilla sex.¬† For readers who like the hot stuff, but don’t want to wade through a bunch of kink – this is a good, solid choice.¬† I’ll admit, the set-up and story weren’t really doing a whole lot for me.¬† Wow, an exclusive club where people can explore their sexual fantasies?¬† I’ve only read that a time or two or thousand.¬† Then I got to the ending.¬† It’s the ending that truly makes this story, and probably one I should have seen coming, but didn’t.¬† What could have been a been-there-read-that erotic short, easily forgotten, is instead made memorable by an ending that left me with a smile on my lips.¬† Good show!
