Guest Review: It Stings So Sweet – Stephanie Draven

Posted February 10, 2013 by Shannon in / 0 Comments

They vibrated with incendiary Jazz. They teemed with sexual abandon.

The Twenties were roaring and the women—young, open, rebellious, and willing—set the pace and pushed the limits with every man they met… In the aftermath of a wild, liquor-soaked party, three women from very different social classes are about to live out their forbidden desires.

Society girl, Nora Richardson’s passionate nature has always been a challenge to her ever-patient husband. Now he wants out of the marriage and she has just this one night to win him back. The catch? He wants to punish her for her bad behavior. Nora is offended by her husband’s increasingly depraved demands, but as the night unfolds, she discovers her own true nature and that the line between pain and pleasure is very thin indeed.

Meanwhile, Clara Cartwright, sultry siren of the silent screen, is introduced to a mysterious WWI Flying Ace. If Clara, darling of the scandal sheets, knows anything, it’s men. And she’s known plenty. But none of them push her boundaries like the aviator, who lures her into a ménage with a stranger in a darkened cinema then steals her jaded heart.

Working class girl Sophie O’Brien has more important things on her mind than pleasures of the flesh. But when her playboy boss, the wealthy heir to the Aster family fortune, confronts her with her diary of secret sex fantasies, she could die of shame. To her surprise, he doesn’t fire her; instead, he dares her to re-enact her boldest fantasies and Sophie is utterly seduced.

One party serves as a catalyst of sexual awakening. And in an age when anything goes, three women discover that anything is possible…

Reviewer’s Thoughts:

This book actually consists of three different stories with some characters that overlap all three stories.  For example one of the characters is an ex-fiance in one story and the central character in another story.  This book was a really fast read.  I read all of it in 3 hours.  I tried to stop, but I just had to see how it ended.

The storylines for the stories were very different and centered around strong female lead characters that had a definite opinion and interest in a sex life outside of traditional boundaries.  The stories included spanking, double penetration, and m/f menage segments.  These were very tastefully described with no coarse language and all in the context of romance and love with permission.

I loved every story and my only disappointment is that the stories weren’t longer.  If you enjoy heroines that aren’t afraid to ask for what they want and delight in receiving it– this book is for you.  It’s entertaining and eventful from start to finish.
