Neighbors Kayla Martin and Dylan Thompson are good friends. Based on one of their late-night conversations, Kayla invents a sex toy called the Walnut Wand. She asks Dylan to help test it but he refuses.

After saying no to a stint as a guinea pig, Dylan wins a hand of poker and asks Kayla for a favor of his own: engage in phone sex with him. Kayla is thrilled to hear that Dylan desires her, but her mission to find someone to test out her new invention will not be thwarted.

Matthews has penned a racy story with Kayla as a loopy heroine and Dylan a dominant lover. Their sexual episodes—on and off the phone—are exciting, and using poker as a plot point adds to the story. (dl $5.75)
