NIGHTS IN BLACK LEATHER
Mack has written a light, entertaining tale of sin and sexual fantasy. While there are some creative sex scenes --including a virtual reality game and light BDSM -- the pages are filled with scenery and unnecessary details for such a short story. Readers looking for deep characters with profound internal conflict, or those seeking visceral experiences, may be disappointed. The story wraps up nicely to create a fun, pleasant read.
But Lara's afraid to give in too quickly and insists on taking it slow. Adam reluctantly agrees, then takes her on a whirlwind ride of sensual nights and dark desires. (Aphrodisia, Jun., 304 pp., $12.95)
