Bees: 5 out of 6
About the story: Victoria Kingston, a young woman working for a telecom firm, has been divorced for 6 months and had no sex for much longer. Her friend Holly cannot believe it, when she hears that and tempts her into stocking up on some sensual underwear and toys, as well as giving her some tips on what clubs to go to to try herself out. What both do not know is their conversation in the break room is overheard. Soon Victoria finds herself in a steamy adventure, which did not start in one of the clubs her friend had suggested to her….
About the author: You have met Candi Silk in my first author interview and the publishing of her latest novel Thrill Driven last month and she is already off to new adventures with her sensuous pen. Sweet as candy and soft as silk, she entwines your fantasies with her adventurous stories and makes sure you enjoy great reading pleasure.
Her Goodreads biography adds this warning and I add this too just in case 🙂 : “[Candi Silk writes only for adults 18 years and older. Her stories contain a variety of adult erotic fantasies: couples, swingers, interracial, cunnilingus, fellatio, threesomes, and other multiple-partner relations, and seasoned with a dash of humor and romance. All fictional characters are 18 and older. Candi’s writings are strictly for reading entertainment.]” (Resource Goodreads Bio Candi Silk)
Honey Bees in the book: This was the first erotic story I have been reading since my teenage time (Yes, The Bee was naughty and scoured her parent’s bookshelf at the age of 14 🙂 ) and I have not been disappointed. A steamy hot story with an interesting main character. I could connect easily with her and was taken away on an erotic discovery with Victoria that certainly gave my husband some pleasure too after I read it.
Of course, the story is about erotic fantasies, but not so far out of reality that it felt silly. I loved the female point of view and following Victoria’s growing into her own sexuality. She finds out much more about herself with her “Night Rogue” than she had all of her life before and I think that is something many women experience in their 30s or even 40s (yes, I know, Victoria is just 28 🙂 ).
This is also a story about trust which in my opinion is one of the most important parts of a fulfilling sexuality. “Night Rogue” meets her under uncommon circumstances which take Victoria to the limits of her self-assurance as well as her security. This situation is both exciting and a little scary which gives the whole book that little extra kick.
A short story which brings you fast to the point which I also enjoyed. The older I get the more I like to read shorter fiction which makes me think and learn something new. This book certainly has.
Stinging Bees in the book: The only stinging bee I could find in this racy story, is a highly subjective one: The “Night Rogue” forces his entrance into Victoria’s home and even though I am aware that this is one of the most intriguing fantasies both women and man can have, for me this comes much too close to experienced violence both in my childhood and in my last relationship. Do not get me wrong: There is no violence as such in this story, just that fact reminds me of it, and it took away some of my reading pleasure. This though is entirely subjective and has nothing to do with Candi Silks ability to write great stories.
And the mead of it all?
“Night Rogue” is a short but exciting read, steamy hot and well written. Something for adult readers who look for a different reading experience.
