Sensual Erotica: #6 The Flame by Red Phoenix
This is my second book by this author, and after having read this quickie, I think I’m going to have to go back and download all the Sensual Erotica chapters so I can get the full story. These aren’t really quickies. They are chapters, and this one leaves you hanging. This is a light-on-the-BDSM and heavy-on-the-erotica story. I found the dominant Brad very compelling, and I think Amy’s crazy to throw that away for Troy over what amounts to a really good case of ‘the grass is always greener…’ syndrome. (Sounds like a soap opera for the fetishly-inclined.) I was so engrossed in the story, I only saw one mistake. But for me, it’s a major one and that’s why I gave this 4 out of 5 stars. When one scene ends and another begins, they need to be separated out (a series of * * * do well for this purpose). Not just for ease of reading, but because it jolts the reader from the story when there is no visual aid to let them know the one scene (which was flowing so well) had come to an end and now, suddenly, several days have passed and our characters are somewhere else, doing something different.
This small, niggling point aside, the story did what it was meant to: My appetite has been whetted for more by this author and from these characters. I thoroughly enjoyed the seduction of the tale, I very much want to download the rest of the story’s ‘quickies’, and I am probably going to end up being a Red Phoenix fan for life. I can definitely recommend this series for those who enjoy a little fetish with their erotica. 4 Stars
