"Luca leaned back into Dash's embrace, feeling the rays of the
dawning sun bond with the heat of Dash's vibrant form. He tilted his neck to feel the warmth of Dash's lips on his crystalline skin. "Why?"
"Because you have found your soul. Now come with me and let me show you the world."
After being attacked by werewolves (off-page), a wounded vampire gets healed by a cat shifter's jizz (!), and they bond. That's it. That was the plot.
This felt more like a rough draft for a full novel rather than a short story that can hold its own. The world building was superficial and a lot of things were being left unexplained.
If this would be a freebie at least, then it would have made for a nice read for a rainy Sunday afternoon. But certainly not for $1.05 (Amazon price at the time of this review).
"I twisted to look at him, squinting."So you knew a Rawlings Handie would get me out of my feelings about no one liking me?"
"So you're like a bisexual Dr. Phil."
Luke shook his head. "You're an idiot."
-> Great bonus short story is great. The doctor approves.
"Is it..." He swallowed. "Are you... totally sure?"
Groves paused, and Tom's thighs trembled.
"Would you like me to double-check?" The doctor's voice was gentle, kindly.
"Oh, god yes," Tom groaned."
The fifth and final book in the Groves' Anatomy series was just a guilty pleasure read as its 4 predecessors, but it was also the most vanilla one.
There wasn't any kink worth mentioning; it was literally just a little fingering and a quick fuck. Hell, there wasn't even a blowjob!
Scarlet Cox, you're better than this. I’m not mad, I’m just disappointed.
"You can't just... have sex with patients!"
"I can." Groves slid to his feet like a panther and circled Adam's desk. "And I'm going to have sex with you, Adam."
Yep, I'm giving a PWP four and half stars. Not because the writing or the plot (*snorts*) were such a revelation, but for what this was, - and let's say it together: "FILTHY PORN!" - it was perfectly fine.
Scarlet Cox managed to squeeze so much kink into only 26 pages that it was a true pleasure to read:
And one my favorite tropes: THE AGE-GAP, with one of the MCs being in his early 30s whereas his boss (!!!) was a 57-year-old. *insert record scratch*
Another point: this was shockingly good writing for a PWP:
"He was so used to being in a position of authority that having someone strip him of his dignity and reduce him to a fuck toy was astoundingly, shamefully hedonistic."
Also kudos for the use of "fuck stick" as a euphemism for cock. Never heard that one before and I immediately fell in love with it.
So yeah, I was in fap heaven. FAP, I SAY.
This was honestly entertaining as fuck, so pulpy and fun.
And HAWT. You can only read this book while sitting alone and listening to Prince.
