The first thing that struck me about Ms. Scott's book is how wonderfully impressive she is as a writer. Although a contemporary novel, 4Play is written by a very intelligent, witty, and literary-minded author. In this book, there are references to such historical figures as Murasaki Shikibu, William Churchill, Buddah, and others. I commend Ms. Scott for not writing the typical erotic yarn relying only on sexual deviantness for its effect, but rather creating a tapestry of sensual, but stirring narrative episodes all delivered in her wonderfully vivid prose style. I was equally impressed with her eclectic use of verse as well.
Although erotica is not my typical reading subject, I would have given this book 5 stars if the last few stories had not lost the flare of the opening episodes. The stories which comprise the beginning of this book, such as my personal favorite, "Devlin Fey", are really engaging tales which gives you an intimate look into the lives of very intriguing characters. Unfortunately, the second half of the book began to fizzle out with mediocre stories which seemed more like leftovers than part of the main course. This is probably due to the fact, that the characters who appear in the latter stories just aren't as interesting as the ones who people the opening tales. No amount of steamy sex scenes or excellent writing can make up for uninteresting characters or situations. To be sure, the erotic component is just as pronounced in the end as it is in the beginning.Read more ›
The Devilin in Fey (story #1) is a quick, but intriguing read. Oh, and don't let me forget it's paranormal eroticism. The interaction between the two main characters, Caitlin and Lucius, is hot, but complicated by the fact that he is an incubus.
They're both sick of the way they are leading their lives; she isn't comfortable or confidant in her own body, and he is get bored of the monotony of casual sexual encounters with his "customers". After an unsatisfying night with a Zac Walsh, a guy with a very large ego, Caitlin wanders off to the beach. The stranger she meets turns out to be the man from her dreams, sexual dreams. Thus begins their tenuous relationship.
To make a short story, shorter, Caitlin and Lucius come to realize that she is becoming a succubus. She isn't sure she wants that life for herself, but Lucius is determined to bring out the devil in her. He comes to her often; using up her body's strength. Basically, she ends up having to decide whether to let her inner demon out or not.
Overall, the story is pretty good. I would have liked Caitlin and Lucius to have a more meaningful relationship, but I'm a hopeless romantic... The Devilin Fey is a great late night read.
