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!

First Time

I’ve got a new book out! It’s in the “hotwife” genre, but it’s a different take on it that you’re going to love! I challenge some notions and assumptions that are typical in the genre and the results are starting to speak for themselves:

“This story was just breathtaking. Leslie is an amazing woman and I found this both incredibly sexy and surprisingly instructional. How she can be so dominant while somehow submissive at the same time is mind-blowingly erotic.”

“The plot was amazing and the fact that Aleson wrote it from the man’s perspective, made it seem like Leslie was teaching you.”

“Perhaps the most instructive and credible story in this genre from a woman’s genuine point of view, particularly in regard to the way she enjoys being made love to by a man. Male readers should take notes while reading this story.”

“It doesn’t matter who or what you’re into… you should read this.”

“Finally! Men please read this. Please.”

And of course: “Great story, and fun to read.”

Here’s the Amazon link, but I’m going to be switching to UBLs so that you can click a single link to find it at your favorite store whether it’s Amazon or Apple.

Enjoy!

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.

Find it here.

Something a little different…

As you all know, I write across a number of genres. The publishing order depends mostly on how fast can I update what I’ve already written and then get it edited. I have hundreds of thousands of words already written, but I wasn’t thinking about professionally publishing them when I wrote them. I have to go through them, reread them, see what needs to be updated or adjusted, added to, taken out, etc. Then, they need a good editorial scrub. So, even though I have a huge backlog, I can’t just throw it out there all at once. However, the fifth one’s made it out: Cherie’s Awakening: A Futa Story. It’s a futa story, but it’s also got a nice lesfic vibe. I’m hoping that people who like either genre will enjoy it.

Cherie’s hunting men. She’s got three nights, she’s made a list and she’s working her way down it. After crossing off numbers one and two on each of the previous nights, she gets to work on Mr. Number Three. However, after a conversation with her first two conquests, number three not only rebuffs her advances, but he makes sure that no one else takes her up on her offer. An angry Cherie commiserates with her new friend Liz, and after a few too many drinks, Liz helps her back to her room, but not before promising to introduce her to ‘her friend’. When a power outage plunges the elevator into darkness, Liz decides that maybe now is the time to introduce Cherie to ‘her friend’. After an exciting elevator ride, Cherie starts to wonder if it’s really ‘men’ that she’s been looking for all this time. Maybe she’s been overlooking a way to address her physical needs that might be much more satisfying…

Find it on Amazon, Smashwords, and soon goodreads, Kobo, Apple, and the rest.

On Cats and their Tales

The Cat’s Tale: The First Lesson giveaway went well, I think.  22 copies were downloaded. Hopefully, people like the story and post reviews (please post reviews).  I did get a few email questions about it, so I’ll take a moment and answer them.

Cat’s Tale is not a short, quick, get-your-rocks-off porn fix. Don’t get me wrong. There is and will be an immense amount of sex it in, some of it pretty exotic. There will be pre-op/non-op transwomen, as well as those who’ve gone all the way through the process.  You’ll have gay men, transmen, lesbians, bisexuals, genderqueer and fluid, as well as polyamory. Crossdressing, watersports, fisting, hucows, group sex, BDSM, femdom, exhibitionism, sissies, pet play, suspension, outdoor sex, bukkake, driving sex, throat fucking, elevator sex, lactation, enormous cocks, tiny cunts, horror sex, feminization, toys, sex machines, and so much else. There’s stuff in it that I don’t know what to call it and I came up with it!  In fact, I think the only things you won’t see are children, scat, vomit, animals, and mutilation, though animals will be mentioned once or twice in passing. While I’m not opposed to writing it, there won’t be incest, though again, it will be mentioned. There won’t be futas (because they’re imaginary and this is a story set in the real world), but there is a pre-op transwoman who’s so well endowed that she might as well be a futa.

Cat herself is very deep and extremely complicated. It’ll take a while before you learn much about her, and even longer to really understand her motivations, why she does what she does, and why she does it in the way that she does.  Even then, you’ll still see her grow and change throughout the story. Jason starts simpler, but he grows and changes as well. There will be other significant characters and they too will grow and change.

Cat’s Tale is long. It’s 125+K words and it’s not finished.  I get that you may not be looking for a super lengthy tale when you just want some quick in the pants action. While there are some scenes that will definitely make you reach for your favorite lubricant (or a partner), there’s also romance, drama, pain, difficult choices, misunderstandings, humor, conflict, character development, social issues, physical violence, and love. I hope you appreciate those things and choose to follow and stay with it all the way through.

There will be liberties taken with transgender (MtF, specifically) biology.  Trust me, I know the realities, but it’s a story and in many stories, there are characters that are unique or special in some way.  Especially in epic stories, which if for no other reason than length, this is.

I do hope that you enjoy and appreciate it.  If you’d like to take a look at it, you can find it on Amazon.  It’s free on KindleUnlimited. Here’s a link to the page: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07Y5677N4/

Thanks!
