Erotica Reading Challenge Books Read to date: 3
This was an awesome book. I give it 5 out of 5 stars. It is a book with three short stories. I read this for my erotic reading challenge. It wasn't overly erotic, but the stories were great and quick to read.

The first is Leather and Lace. Martha Jane had to model lingerie for her business even though she didn't want to. She wore a mask so nobody would recognize her, especially her old boss Richard. Here is a quote from the story:

He reached out, gripped the leather, pulled it slowly down.
His hands slid over her her skin as he did so. Her waist. Her hips. Down her thighs. He let it go, let it fall to the floor around her ankles.

The second is Awaiting Moonrise. A science professor is trying to find a new species of animal in the bayou, some kind of wolf. She ends up face to face with the wolf, but what --or who--is it really?

The beast leaned closer, its dark eyes moving over her body. It seemed, she thought, to be looking her over as thoroughly as she'd been doing to it. P. 90

The last story is Daydream Believer. Megan has visions of a man for many years, and ends up meeting up with him. She helps him to find a serial killer with her visions, but he may be in danger too.

She drew a shaky breath, nodded, and got into his car, then sat there watching him in panic as Sam moved toward her house, the gun leading him. This wasn't right. She was supposed to save this man, according to her recurring dreams. P. 235
