WITHIN
Erotic Transference  (mc ff) (new) by   Mr. J.
–2/5 (so-so, maybe a good story to others but didn’t mesmerize me)–

This author has a strange obsession with copy/pasting his “bio” at the top of all his stories. To be diplomatic, I’m not sure how strong my general interest is to that in many circumstances … Anyway, perhaps I’m just in a “mood,” but I found myself not liking this author’s writing style. Don’t get me wrong “show not tell” is important; though, as Freud liked to say, sometimes a hammer is just a hammer. I don’t always care that much about what’s her name crossing and uncrossing her feet. It’s like the author’s trying too hard to invoke common images, and creating fluff as a result. In the end, too predictable and familiar for me to ultimately mesh with this.

Sexcafades  (mc mf md gr) (new) by   miketheFable
–2/5 (so-so, maybe a good story to others but didn’t mesmerize me)–

Though I don’t mind forth wall breaking, I find that it can trail a fine line between great and ridiculous. A nitpick bordering on the negative is the almost ridiculous amount of questions! There are whole paragraphs that are just one question mark after another without getting to any answers expediently. I know a professor whose head would explode reading that! Shocked Though it won’t make my head explode, all the questioning in this story did get tiresome. In the end, I just couldn’t identify with this EMCSA author construct. I write erotica as a hobby, while never receiving any monetary gain. So, I don’t care that I have no erotic story ideas past my finite Passions Multiverse at the moment; I didn’t get frustrated after I didn’t know where to go after my Breath of Power series. I can’t say this crossed the line into ridiculousness, but I can’t say this crossed into my mesh either.

Adelaide’s Toy (mc mf fd) (new) by   adelaidestoy
~~2.5/5 (not great, had some redeeming qualities)~~

First time author, here we go! I had mixed feelings about the start. Just odd and bordering on the ridiculous, I thought. That forced, controlled theme anthropomorphized via Adelaide continues for good or ill. It sometimes gives the narrative a kind of split personality, which I’m not sure I liked very much in this case. Interesting in its own right, but not completely my thing.

It’s interesting to look down the shirt of your boss unintentionally, especially if she is kinda sexy…
