Are you in the mood to read a short story about a woman who’s looking for a midnight booty call? Well, you should be, because this is a surprisingly good story. Remember way back when authors would write short stories, not novellas, that would incite you to either slam the book closed or gently put it aside – either way it elicited emotions other than ‘meh’. But you were never promised closure or even satisfaction. If you’ve never read that kind of short story, now’s a good time to start.
Working long hours and many months of no sex, 35 year old Mimi, visits an adult oriented website looking for some random man she can have sex with. I wasn’t ever sure what kind of sex she was initially looking for, but she ends up with ‘A-d-e-n’ (people over 12 should never spell their names during an introduction, N-E-V-E-R) and they immediately hit it off. This is a very, very short story but it’s actually told very well. There’s not a lot of character development for either the Mimi or Aden but what we do know is enough to not have this erotica interpret as just ‘meh’.
I can’t say that I ever cared for Mimi. Her personality isn’t the kind that I find attractive or even remotely cute. I’m not an exuberant fan of snark and she’s a bit too aggressive for what I like in a heroine. But she seemed to be what Aden liked and they’re both willing.
If you’re interested in a quick, witty, read with a heroine whose internal conversations sometimes make you wonder if she’s been raised by savages, this is a good choice. I’m off to read the second book in the series and will report back. Read the epilogue, it’s fun.
Happy Reading Folks!
