Book review: Those Girls by Alison Tyler

thosegirlsThe book:
I saw a blog post in which Alison Tyler asked whether anyone was interested in giving her feedback about her novelette. I volunteered and was sent the kindle version by Go Deeper Press.

The front cover of the book has a beautiful picture showing the legs of a woman in net stockings. The kindle version is 1030kb and the print length of the book is 23 pages. The first edition of this novelette was published on 12 February 2013.

The author:
On Amazon I found this biography of Alison Tyler:

Called a trollop with a laptop by East Bay Express, Alison Tyler is naughty and she knows it.

Over the past 20 years, Ms. Tyler has written more than 25 explicit novels, including Learning to Love It, Strictly Confidential, Sweet Thing, Sticky Fingers, and Something About Workmen (all published by Black Lace), as well as Rumors, Tiffany Twisted, and Melt With You (Cheek). Her novels and short stories have been translated into Japanese, Dutch, German, Italian, Norwegian, and Spanish. Her stories have appeared in more than 100 anthologies.
When not writing saucy short stories, Ms. Tyler edits erotic anthologies. She’s recently completed her 50th collection, Alison’s Wonderland (Harlequin, 2010). Her best-selling titles include Naughty Fairy Tales from A to Z (Plume), Naked Erotica (Pretty Things Press), and Best Bondage Erotica (Cleis Press).

Ms. Tyler is loyal to coffee (black), lipstick (red), and tequila (straight). She has tattoos, but no piercings; a wicked tongue, but a quick smile; and bittersweet memories, but no regrets. She believes it won’t rain if she doesn’t bring an umbrella, prefers hot and dry to cold and wet, and loves to spout her favorite motto: You can sleep when you’re dead. She chooses Led Zeppelin over the Beatles, the Cure over NIN, and the Stones over everyone. Yet although she appreciates good rock, she has a pitiful weakness for 80s hair bands.

In all things important, she remains faithful to her partner of 15 years, but she still can’t choose just one perfume.

More information on Alison as well as a list of her books can be found on the Amazon shopping-enabled WikipediaPage

The main characters:
Sandy – a dominant male, protective of the BDSM world
Vanessa – a reporter that visits the BDSM club where Sandy frequently goes to

The story:
Sandy sees Vanessa at the BDSM club and he discovers that she is a reporter. He’s angry at Jake, who works at the club, for letting her in and wants to punish him, but Vanessa gets in the way. They ended up in Sandy’s apartment, where he gives her what she has been looking for all along.

My opinion:
I had no idea what to expect with regard to the story or the writing of Alison Tyler, as I have never read any of her work before. I was pleasantly surprised. This novelette has a fast moving story that held my attention from beginning to end. The scenes are well described and being a very visual person, I could clearly picture everything that happened in my mind. This left me feeling a bit flushed myself. Nothing is more sexy than a man taking control of a situation and a woman submitting to that, and Alison definitely knows how to make her characters do just that!

If you are looking for a quick, hot read, this novelette is for you.
