Now I am a fan of fig biscuits although it strikes me that I've never tried the actual fruit. Now I've read this I think I'll be searching for some as soon as I go near a shop! Holy figs Tabitha.
I confess I'm a big fan of Tabitha's writing. Her Butterfly books being among my favourite books. This of course is a short story rather than a trilogy of full length stories and with that in mind is perfect.
It means you can get through the story in just one sitting. If you enjoy it as much as I did then you'll not want to put it down either.
Tabitha is fantastic at sex scenes and this book continues that trend. For me there is also joy in the simple and joyful details too. One single line to add in about rubbish being put in the bin. Simple but a wonderful little additional detail. Perhaps I'm strange in that way but to me it adds a genuine life story quality to the book.
Rory, Mae and Janey are an interesting bunch. There are f/f scenes and m/f and of course ffm scenes.
So yeah scenes excellent, plot marvellous, writing realistic, characters hot and bothered.
If I was forced into having to come up with a down side it could only be that there is no way I'm getting to sleep after reading that hotness, at least for a bit!
I found this short story to be quite interesting and different. Rory isn’t really made out to be hero material at all. Described not only as the office perv, but as lecherous and almost stalker-ish, I have to be honest and admit his character didn’t initially make a very good first impression. I did, however, like how it was clear almost immediately that there was far more to Rory’s character as that first “perv” impression made out. Mae and Janey also have their faults, both are quite jealous – Mae of Janey’s past experience with other women and Janey of Mae’s current social life and freedom at work throughout the day. This made the interactions between the characters – to my mind at least – both realistic and a lot more interesting than would first appear on the surface. These faults and issues were written in such a manner that they actually compelled my interest in reading further and discover how the story would unfold.
One thing I particularly enjoyed though – and which should appeal to most romance readers – there was never a question to my mind on Mae and Janey’s love for each other. No matter what else was going on between them – with or without Rory – the two women really loved each other and had a solid core at the base of their relationship. This helped ease me over any of my small niggles and little worries. I found their love and devotion to each other was beautiful to read.
Readers should be aware that there’s a fair bit of food-play sexually speaking. While figs are the initial instigation, Mae and Janey don’t stop there with their experimentation. The F/F main relationship between them is what the majority of the story is based upon. While the addition of Rory is consensual and teased/hinted at between the two ladies to ramp up their own sexual arousal the addition of a third and man for the ménage is the culmination of those fantasies, not the basis of the story itself. Readers who aren’t interested in F/F storylines might want to consider this when thinking about this story.
There’s plenty of lush sex scenes that should satisfy any erotic reader. All except the final climax scene were F/F, though the long-awaited ménage really lived up to the foundation that was laid for it in my opinion. A great scene and it left me satisfied by the high note the characters felt.
A steamy, raunchy short story about two committed women exploring their fantasies and some deliciously naughty sexual food-play. Add in the office perv for one night of a decadent ménage and all three of them are about to have a night of the wickedest fantasies. A sensual, sexy story that I enjoyed and found refreshingly different to so many other ménage stories out there.

Although Mae and her partner Janey have a loving and passionate relationship, Janey spends much of her time at home. Once she learns of Mae’s fun and frolics in the office, her own sexual taste buds explode and once out for the evening she is determined to enjoy herself through a little experimentation. Mae and the unsuspecting Rory are extremely willing players! The lovemaking scenes are scorching, sweaty and earthy and I enjoyed the interplay between the characters, particularly Rory’s reaction to events.
This is a humorous and sexy read, full of some memorable scenes. One thing is clear, I will be eying up the many opportunities presented by both the salad and the fruit bowl, particularly those of a succulent ripe fig! Please note that a copy of this book was given to me by the author for the purpose of a fair and honest review.
Such a fun, quick read, with a touching love story between Mae and Janey, and more than a few sexual encounters!
Still won't make me eat a fig though!!
