Review of Jessa Calvaver's The Very Thought of Him
This short story is billed as true erotica and it definitely lives up to its genre, plus gave me more than I expected! Although it is short (as fast a build-up as much erotica is), Dara's characterization and portrayal of her motives pleasantly fulfill my need for something beyond scorching-hot sex. Even my erotica has to have some type of point to it, and Callaver delivers! Very few grammatical or mechanical errors distract from the intensity of the sexual chemisty--something I absolutely require so that I can submerse myself in the fantasy. At times I could actually feel myself becoming Dara. There is even an awesome plot twist! I was a little disappointed about the cliffhanger at the end of the story, but I hope that Calaver will write a sequel soon. I recommend this story to anyone who enjoys graphically hot, but not totally gratuitous, M/F sex!
