Heat Rating: 4
Emma has just been promoted, a huge deal for the only female Enforcer. She celebrates her last night before her six-week assignment by going out for some dancing and fun with her two best friends. When she meets two men, she decides to end her night with both.
Heath and Dracon are fantasy come to life. They have incredible bodies and know how to use them to bring her extreme pleasure…over and over again. None of them want the night to end. So imagine their surprise when they find out they’re to be partnered, a new triad squad that could be the future of the Enforcers.
Is it possible to mix business with pleasure? Emma can’t wait to find out.
This is another good example of an interesting premise that fell flat in execution. Not to say it wasn’t an entertaining read, but the world Ms. Thorn built wasn’t explored to its full potential. Readers are introduced to Emma just as she is receiving her promotion, given a brief overview of what her work entails, and aside from the smidgeon of conflict at the end, given nothing more than a backdrop for the sex scenes.
In terms of steamy sex, the novella is mostly a success. There were a few phrases that threw me out, particularly when the female anatomy “grabbed” someone’s tongue. I found that slightly horrifying. (Anyone see Teeth?) But other than that, it’s at least fairly well written. I just wish the plot teasers had been more than teasers…though for the setup Ms. Thorn gave the supporting female characters that disappeared as quickly as they appeared, perhaps we’ll see more of this universe.
