Lanie Burrell had heard about group sex, but how would she handle being thrust into the middle of a hot Saturday night party?
Lanie Burrell was shocked to discover the reason Cody Hawkins was the only other neighbour on their private little cul de sac. He needed the privacy for the swinging parties he hosted featuring the kind of uninhibited group sex she read about in the erotic books she reviewed. At the moment they were the most exciting part of her sex life.
Then Cody invited her to one of his parties, and she found a wildness within herself she hadn't known existed. And an attraction between herself and Cody that exploded like a big bomb on a short fuse.
What do an erotic romance review writer and the sexy single man next door who hosts the hottest, wildest swinger parties every week have in common? The greatest sex either one has ever had? Yes! In almost every way possible? Yes! A magnetic attraction that makes them both crave each other to the exclusion of anyone else? Yes!
This continuously roaring hot story tells the tale of the sexual awakening of the heroine, Lanie, who has read plenty, but experienced little. At first Lanie is timid, shy and critical. Then she meets her swinging, gorgeous neighbor, Cody who coaxes out the erotic hunger in her with his experienced and passionate guidance. After attending one of Cody's swinger's parties, Lanie spreads her butterfly wings of newly found carnal delight, and soon the two are inseparable.
I liked Cody and his gentle yet softly dominant nature. That Ms. Holt brings the very independent and adventurous man to the emotional place where he wants and sees a certain woman as being all he'll ever need is charming and endearing. For the first time in his life Cody has found a woman that he wants to settle down to a permanent relationship with.
I had a problem with Lanie. From the first, I found her hard to like. She seemed mousy, prudish and crabby. Even after the huge about-face concerning her opinion of Cody's lifestyle, she was too subservient and ill-defined. That, and a few editing errors prevented me from rating this story higher.
That said, the sex was extremely hot and there was a lot of it. The depiction of the swinger's lifestyle was fascinating, non-stop steamy action. I was pleased with the happy, hopeful ending that left me feeling I could have my cake and eat it, too. Even with a problem or two, I liked this engrossing tale and feel that for the length, it covered a lot of ground in a classy, well-written way. I recommend, Swingtime to anyone who wants a fun, short read with a lot of sexy, exciting action.
