“Caught in the Act” by Alex
With his dorm mostly empty for the
holidays, Tom decides it’s the perfect time to try out the
toys he just bought himself. When his sexy friend Adrian
catches him in the act, Tom’s mortified until it becomes
clear that perhaps Adrian might like to give him a hand with
testing out his new vibrators.
It’s fun to read about friends becoming
lovers, and “Caught in the Act” is no exception. I loved
the hesitation and slight uncertainty in both Tom and
Adrian, and I enjoyed their desire for one another
overcoming it even more. A light-hearted, pleasurable tale,
I enjoyed reading “Caught in the Act.”
“A Hand from Eros and Venus” by S.
It’s not the first time Kieran has ever
been into a sex shop, but it is the first time he’s ever
been there to buy something. On a mission to find a gag
gift for his friend’s wedding, Kieran meets Mack, the owner
of Eros and Venus. Mack’s happy to help Kieran find the
perfect gift; and even happier to offer Kieran a personal
demonstration of his products.
S. Blaise captures that indefinable
spark that comes from meeting a sexy stranger perfectly in
“A Hand from Eros and Venus.” I loved watching the
confident Mack seduce the somewhat shy Kieran. What’s more,
I loved watching Kieran come into his own as he began
exploring his sexuality with Mack. These two definitely
burned up the page in the best of ways, and I adored every
minute of it. This was the first story I’ve read by Ms.
Blaise and it definitely won’t be the last.
“Discreet Packaging” by Chris Owen
Detective Cortland Strang has just
received a box wrapped in notably discreet packaging.
Though unsure what’s in the package and who sent it, his
lover, Patrick Gallagher, is eager to find out. When it
turns out that the package contains sex toys, Cort and
Gallagher’s evening gets a whole lot hotter.
Chris Owen never fails to pen an
entertaining tale and “Discreet Packaging” is no exception.
Even tired after a long week at work, Gallagher has a
sparkling energy which drew me in. The more calm of the
pair, Cort is nevertheless equally enticing. Together,
they’re dynamite and I loved both the genuine emotion
between the lovers and the way they heated up the page.
Cort and Gallagher’s first story was in the To Serve and
Protect anthology and immediately upon finishing
“Discreet Packaging” I rushed to buy and read their story in
To Serve and Protect.
There’s nothing innocent about a vibrator, and Toy
Box: Vibrators explores the wonderful naughtiness of
such toys. Each story has its own distinctive feel and each
was a delight to read. Fans old and new of Alex
Marcus-Jacobs, S. Blaise, and Chris Owen are sure to adore
this deliciously wicked anthology.
