Reactions and Reviews

Wow! What an erotic, sensuous bit of writing. I really admire the ability to keep a sex scene interesting for pages and pages. There is some very fresh writing here, with little of the mundane, over-used phrases. And even with all that, this story still managed to have warm feelings of raw affection underlining it. An enjoyable read. [1]
Ah, a malfunctioning turbolift. And guess who’s stranded inside? Things happen rather quickly in this immodest little story—it’s an easy read with few surprises but entertaining nonetheless. [2]
