Free Pass Paperback – December 2, 2008
Top Customer Reviews
Three couples have been happily married for 7 years. The women are friends and decide that all six partners should have a one-time-only free pass to have sex with a stranger. The three husbands decide to go along with this. The book is then divided into three stories, which I'll call couple A, couple B and couple C. Couple A is on vacation in Miami. Cherisse meets a younger man, a lifeguard, actor and model. Wesley sees a woman in her apartment through his telescope and follows her to meet her. The wife of Couple B, Mel, owns a fitness club. She meets and is attracted to traveling businessman Richard who is working out at her club. Couple C is on vacation in Greece and meets a married couple from Russia.
The stories are how the individuals meet the strangers, their uneasiness about proposing the affairs, how the actual affairs happen, their feelings afterwards, and being glad to be back with their spouses.
The format was bad for me. The author broke up the stories in a way that frustrated me. There are three stories, divided into six parts each. The stories are told as follows. Couple A for 14 pages, couple B for 17 pages, couple C for 17 pages, then back to couple A for 16 pages, to couple B for 16 pages, to couple C for 16 pages, etc. I'm reading about couple A, I want to know what will happen, and then I am interrupted for 34 pages. When the story gets back to couple A, I've forgotten parts and need to flip back through a few pages to recall what was going on. My memory is not that good. This felt like an annoying TV commercial but worse because the interruptions lasted so long. I would much prefer the author tell the complete A story for 94 pages and then move on to the B story for 96 pages, etc.Read more ›
Of course, what's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander...
When I first read the premise of Elizabeth Scott's book FREE PASS, I honestly wasn't sure I wanted to read this one. The blurb on the cover smacks of infidelity, something I couldn't believe I would be able to easily read.
But I've read this author's work before, numerous times. She has always come through with tales I at least like and often love. So I decided to continue to trust her, given her track record thus far, and settled in to read FREE PASS.
From the start, I have to say I was impressed that the author did not go the route I was so afraid she might by making it easy for the characters to `cheat' on their spouses. From the very beginning of the story, each of the six friends struggles with the idea of spending a night outside of their marriage beds. Indeed, this struggle continues throughout the story, easing my mind a great deal.
Are the characters titillated by the idea? Yes, for the most part. But they worry over the effect these trysts will have on their significant others and ultimately, their relationships. Even so, they all harbor reasons why going through with this idea is more tempting than it should be.
For Debra and Gordon, the fact that they were both virgins when they married certainly makes them curious about the idea.Read more ›
Three women friends are all coming up on the Seven year wedding anniversary and to avoid that itch they decide to give their spouse a free pass to a sexual encounter. Bringing this up to their husbands is tricky at first but soon the husbands are on board and wanting their wives to have a pass too.
Cherisse and Wesley venture out of town to Miami and this is a perfect chance to let go. Each has their fling and surprisingly their love is stronger.
Melanie and Thomas are both strong, driven people. Thomas doesn't feel the need for a free pass but is willing to let Melanie fly. He is shocked to find himself enthralled by Melanie with another man.
Debra and Gordon take a long awaited vacation to Greece and met a couple unlike any they have ever known. They are perfect for their free pass.
Each couple enters into their encounter with mixed emotions. But they come out stronger then they thought and ready to embrace their marriages.
Elizabeth Scott writes edgy erotic stories that will expand your reading pleasure.
Cherisse and Wesley take a beach vacation where they discover that their love for each other is incredibly strong and will continue to grow.
Melanie's reason for wanting Thomas to accept the pass runs a little deeper and while Thomas isn't initially crazy about the idea, he realizes that Melanie needs to see that his love for her is never ending and that he doesn't want, or need, anyone else.
For Debra and Gordon, having only been with each other, the idea of sharing each other with others is more than a little forbidden and oh so exciting!
