Review: The Male Stripper & The Stranger

E_TheMaleStripper_250"The Male Stripper (Red Hot Fantasies)" (erotica, self-published/Edge of Ecstasy, December 2011, $0.99, 42pp) and "The Stranger (Red Hot Fantasies)" (erotica, self-published/Edge of Ecstasy, January 2012, $0.99, 30pp) by Opal Carew

Opal Carew has a new erotica series featuring several women friends who each fulfill their deepest fantasies. Each woman's fantasy is detailed in a very brief story. I would consider these stories to be erotica rather than erotic romance as there is little-to-no character development and no happy ending (well, I guess that depends on your definition of a happy ending).

The first story is "The Male Stripper" and has Becca's fantasy of getting down and dirty with a gorgeous and hot male stripper that she hired for a friend's bachelorette party. But she gets a little bit more than she bargained for when Cal the stripper returns to her house later that evening with his friend Don in tow. Not only do they fulfill Becca's fantasy, but also Don's – which involves a female client getting frisky during an audition. A night of sexy dancing and erotic pleasure ensues with the three.
