The fourth installment in the Cocktales series is steamy, raunchy and everything one would expect in BDSM erotica, but something is missing. It could be that it moves along a bit too quickly — readers can’t catch a breath in between the unthinkable sex acts — or that the epilogue is all too predictable. Either way, fans will enjoy the story about the multiple characters and take pleasure in their different personalities. An easy read during a lunch break, or at happy hour with the gals. It’s 5 o’clock somewhere, right?
For as long as Professor Elias Clarke and Books and Brew co-proprietor Jayne Kent have known each other, neither has confessed their attraction. Elias, the dominant, thinks his lifestyle would scare her away, and Jayne is too shy to spill her true feelings. All it takes is one particular drink, a Screaming Orgasm, to get her to open up. She’s the perfect submissive for Elias. But now that her fantasies are being fulfilled, Jayne may run away and move on. Elias has something different in mind: trying to convince her to be his sub forever. (ELLORASCAVE.COM, dl $5.60)
