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.
There are a wide range of themes used for this book. It's more than your standard erotica book--this book is totally erotic and also very interesting. There's a personality that informs the stories, and an honesty in it, along with feeling and psychological awareness. The author pays attention to the little things like ego, shyness, jealousy, and so on, that make human interactions difficult, unpredictable and, often, funny. This is some truly impressive work here. Also, Jess C Scott writes with great imagery so you can easily visualize ;)
Unfortunately it WAS, as one reviewer put it,"something genuine, something real",--also, something ordinary, something plain. The story I read was about a girl with a mirror, having an almost sexy fantasy and a mildly steamy internet conversation with a friend.
At first I liked the real-life aspect of it. Then I began to realize that it was too much like real-life - just ordinary, just average. There was no thrill. The story was only mildly erotic but intensely tedious.
The author's writing style is GREAT, particularly regarding its very discriptive nature. The trouble is, it's mostly a description of the ordinary.
All the other reviews talk of rather extraordinary tales of the erotic. Apparently it's just the "4:Play" free sample that lacks excitement.
Well, I guess it's true, "You can't judge an eBook by its eSample."
