The Hucow Virus

The Hucow Virus by L.A Laven

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

I grabbed this one (freebie) because I find the hucow kink interesting, whether in the purely dairy or full breeding incarnations. It took a few days, but I did get around to it. That was a mistake. It desperately needed an editor. I mean desperately. Even a beta reader would have fixed 90+% of the issues.

The constant switching back and forth between past and present tense from sentence to sentence was very disorienting. Things were badly misspelled, had dropped letters, or randomly capitalized. Pronoun usage was confusing and sometimes I never did figure out who was being referred to. The word choices were often decidedly unsexy. For example, using ‘dig’ over and over (almost exclusively) to mean sliding a cock in and out was off-putting. As my mind was automatically building pictures to accompany the words, I started having issues there. Even the most skilled contortionist would tell you that the human body simply does not work that way or shape into those positions/configurations. The author seemed to forget whether he had the wife on her back or front. How do strangers come into your house and know where all your sex toys are? Especially, when you made a big deal out of hiding them from your husband. Does it not even occur to you to make a single comment on the fact that your neighbor just came into your house with a bunch of other random guys and started raping you without a word? Or even have an unexpressed thought about it? Can milk flow out of your nipples while they have clamps tight on them? How did they tie your husband up when they arrived empty-handed? Did they bring a rope that you didn’t mention? Did they use clothing? Why is everyone ‘leaving long ropes of cum all over my eggs’? Biology doesn’t work like that. I could go on.

It felt like a randomly computer-generated story trying cram lactation, big black cock, alpha male, group sex, non-consent, cuckold, slut wife (not hotwife), bukkake, D/s, and impregnation into 3,875 words (yes, I counted). Except the computer would have not made all the spelling and grammar mistakes.

I cannot recommend this one. At all. Ever. I don’t want to be harsh, mean, or unpleasant. I really don’t. It’s just bad.

What the heck, Amazon?

So, I did an ARC (Advance Review Copy) for Brianna Skylark for her book Play with Us: An Urban Game Night Foursomefind it here on Goodreads or here on Amazon – and one of the things that she asked for was to review it on Amazon. I was happy to do that. It’s a great story, I enjoyed it and I’ll follow the series. Play with Us is the second in her Erotic Swingers series. I haven’t grabbed the first story yet, but I intend to. She’s a great writer and if the rest of her work is like this, I’ll be following her.

Anyway, the review went up on Goodreads just fine. It went up on BookBub just fine. Amazon though…I’ve submitted that review FOUR times and it still hasn’t shown up. I haven’t gotten any emails that said that it was rejected or that there was any issues at all. Just to be on the safe side, I changed the word ‘anal’ to ‘rear’. Still nothing. I sent her an email explaining, but I’m still ticked at Amazon. So, I’m going to drop the review here as well:

“This book was very enjoyable to read. It has a slow build-up but it’s a very pleasant journey. All of the action is driven by the women, Emilia and Amy, but that shouldn’t confuse you into thinking that these are female-led relationships. They come across as quite balanced actually. It’s written as if the husbands are both acutely aware that for the relationship to form in a sustainable way, that it must be driven by the wive’s mutual attraction. There is a lot of flirting and teasing, and in fact, one of the characters complains about just that and how the situation makes that virtually unbearable at times. I can certainly empathize with their view. I’d be quite frustrated if I was in their position as well.

“There are a few things that did strike me, but I don’t think that they detracted from the story. For example, much ado is made about Cassian’s length, yet Amy easily took him fully in a single thrust. The same with Mark’s girth and Emilia’s anal penetration. There are often elements glossed over in stories with a high focus on romance, but the men’s physical attributes are iterated enough that I would have liked to see a bit more reaction from women with regard to them. Those issues aside, it’s a great story and well worth the read.”

So, go grab a copy and read it!

Gambling on Gender: an erotic gender swap tale

Gambling on Gender: an erotic gender swap tale by Sally Bend

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was frankly fascinating. It wasn’t so much the story (thought it was a great story), it was the way that Sally stuck you in a dozen different bodies and yet every time she managed to make you feel every single aspect of what being that person was like. I admit that early in the story I thought that Sally was unnecessarily mean to a particular type of person, but with each word, I got drawn into the character and really felt like I was that person. It was no longer mean. It was simply a fact of their existence and vicariously, mine.

I found myself not wanting it to end because I just wanted Sally to show me so clearly what it is like to be another person. There wasn’t much sex is this one, and though I find it nearly painful to say so, I’m glad. The intense psycho-sensual stimulation of simply being another person would be overwhelming when combined with a good sex scene (which we know Sally can do quite skillfully.)

Needless to say, this is an excellent book and if you think that erotica can’t be deep and thoughtful, Sally’s about to prove you wrong.

Book Review: Futanari Moans and the Sucker’s Cure by Sally Bend

I’ve decided to start writing reviews of the books that I read. As a writer, I know that writers bust their butts trying to realize an idea into a polished piece that let’s other see inside our heads for a little while. I know that I want you to see what I’ve created AND TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT IT. I’ve read the same thing over and over from other writers. So, I’m going to start giving my peers the same thing that I’m asking for. Without further ado:

Futanari Moans and the Sucker’s Cure by Sally Bend.

Sally Bend’s daring and dynamic dame of deliciously delightful dimensions returns for a second installment. Ms. Moans’ previous adventure has left her with an unexpected consequence. Our heroine goes to drastic measures, taking us into an exploration of an experience that should be terrifying, but is instead incredibly sensual and erotic. Instead of the standard scene of the monster violating her, it reads like two equals engaged in passionate lovemaking, a clever trick when you’re dealing with an ancient monster from legend that defies human understanding.

Sally’s given us another fantastic chapter in Ms. Moans’ story and I can’t wait to read the next one. While this book doesn’t have the heart-lightening humor of the previous one, it makes up for it with a deep sensuality touches you in places that you might not be aware of with some very pleasant results.
