Hannah West needs some whiz bang, baby. And after attending a raucous sex-toys party with her best buds, the Sassy Seven, she aims to fulfill that urge. If it means hunting down a man or two to experiment with battery-operated pleasure, then so be it.

Tired of boring, ho-hum, and downright pitiful, she plans her escape to an exotic and highly erotic locale. But nothing eases her desire for the one man she can never have, her off-limits best friend.

Hannah wants a little whiz bang? With a complete stranger? Or strangers? The thought makes Sean want to cuss. Oh hell no! He’s wanted sexy Hannah for years. No way is he letting some stranger put his hands on the lush brunette. If she wants excitement and plastic pleasure, he’ll deliver the goods…and more. On the bed, against the wall, in the shower. Sean aims to show Hannah that best friends can make the very best lovers.

Now she's gone and done it. Has Hannah ruined one of the best friendships she ever had? Sean sure hopes so...

Can Hannah settle for a 'friends with benefits' arrangement with long time best friend turned lover, Sean, after an incident of hot phone sex interrupts their tidy, platonic friendship? Slightly drunken Hannah indulges in the decadent interlude following an all-girls sex toy party, sharing the details of the shopping spree with Sean over the phone as he takes total erotic control. Afterward, she fears she may have jeopardized their valued friendship.

Tired of her boring celibate life, Travel Agent Hannah decides she wants an adventure, too. So she books a singles trip to Mexico with her bag of 'toys' in tow, hoping to find Mr. Hot Sexy Fun to jazz up her sex life. Sean, who can't tolerate the idea of Hannah sharing herself with a stranger after their amazing phone sex experience, follows her to the resort. Hannah is then forced to face the secret craving she's always had for her best friend.

After ten days of the hottest, most exciting lovemaking she's ever had, Hannah admits to herself that she's been in love with Sean for years. Her insecurity over how Sean truly feels for her sends her running emotionally when their vacation ends. A panicked Hannah convinces herself he wants a 'friends with benefits' relationship rather than being the love of her life. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Ms. Carlysle made this tale a delightful 'bag of tricks'. The creative way she integrated the toys into the story turned this sweet and serious romance into a lighthearted fantasy romp as well. I enjoyed how Hannah's awakening was both sexual and emotional. The toys acted as the key to the revelation that everything she wanted and needed was right in front of her.

I was a little impatient with a 'misunderstanding' scene in the story that followed the couples' rendezvous, feeling it was unnecessary. Other than that, I found everything to love about this satisfying and scorching hot tale. I recommend, Whiz Bang to everyone who enjoys a hot, adventurous romance that delivers big time. Whiz Bang is part of the self-published, Toys 4 Us collection of seven playful short stories by seven fun loving authors.
