A two story collection of hot couples who decide to make things even hotter by putting a man in the middle.
In Some Things, a friend of Joe's stirs the pot and puts Zoe in a corner. "There are some things you simply don’t ask for. I know that. And I had done a damn fine job of keeping this particular thought-wish-dream to myself. Until that jackass, Drake, undid it all."
Zoe ends up confessing a long-held fantasy of seeing her husband with another man while he's with her. What Zoe is not expecting after spilling the beans is that Joe will do whatever he can to make sure she gets what she wants.
In Hidey Hole, a drawer riddled piece of furniture shows Jill a glimpse of Peter's past in a note. Now that we’re moving, I want you to know that you mean so much to me. And when I’m lonely or sad, I will always think of us together. How you smelled, how you touched me, what you tasted like...
Jill pieces together her husband's adolescent experimentation and wonders (aloud) if he might just do it again. But this time for her. Lucky for Jill, Peter's all about pleasing his wife.
Sometimes fantasies should be spoken aloud, and sometimes not. In the case of Some Things, true love makes fantasy reality when a wife tells her husband her ultimate dream come true and admits that it isn’t watching porn movies where the man has all the fun. Go figure!
Though Zoe tries to hide her true fantasy about her husband, Joe, having sex with her while another man has sex with him, he makes her tell him what she truly wants, stunned with the results. To prove how much he loves her, he brings a male friend home to do just that.
After making it clear that Joe won’t allow his friend to touch Zoe, he allows anal sex while he makes love to his wife and is pleased with the results. After the experience, the couple’s relationship becomes closer and they decide to do it again someday, but not every day.
Zoe’s character shows honest love for her husband while thrilled by the erotic act of trust, while Joe proves that he’ll do anything for his wife in an act of unconditional love. Their friend is warm, caring, and shows concern for Joe’s welfare during the session.
The story is sweet and moving, offering a chance to explore intimacy in a new light.
In Hidey Hole, we find that the deepest hidden secrets can bring amazing results when a wife discovers a love note written to her husband when he was in his teens, written by another male. She’s intrigued, not disgusted by the find and tries to hide her knowledge of his experience from him, yet he’s too in tune with her and knows she’s keeping something from him.
When Peter finally gets Jill to fess up, she tells him of her secret desire to watch him have sex with a man while she watches. To her surprise and delight, he agrees and contacts his ex-lover who joins them for dinner. Peter asks the man if he’d consider it and they are off to the bedroom.
While Jill watches the men, she pleasures herself which provides a voyeuristic touch to the experience that leaves all of them panting. In the end (pun intended), the trio plan on having more interludes as all secrets from the hidey holes are revealed.
The story was lighthearted and fun, while one could only imagine the free-thinking attitudes of the lovers. Out of the darkest places can come the brightest light.
These two tales deserve four cherries though there wasn’t a cherry to be had in either of them.
