Review by Dandelion

Isabella and Tiana have danced around their attraction to one another for months. Once Tiana finally accepts Isabella's invitation to dinner, each finds that they have both participated in "peeping" at the other during their most intimate moments.

This short story is a wild ride of female loving, as neighbors Bella and Tiana discover that they only thing they enjoy more than watching the other with a partner is finally enjoying some alone time – together. It’s a straight-forward tale: both main characters are in unhappy, unfulfilling relationships until Tiana takes the bold step of inviting herself over for dinner. Then, they finally find that true loving has been right across the courtyard of their apartment complex the whole time.

The sex scenes are many and detailed, and if you like female-female loving, then you’ll be pleased with “Somebody’s Watching.” There’s even a ménage scene to add to the spice. On the flip side, though, this author sacrifices plot for erotic content. There’s little character development and a couple of gaping plot holes that allow these two women to end up together. I also wasn’t crazy about the step-by-step details of every position and orgasm.

However, this is a very brief, very hot story, and in all honesty, it doesn’t need a lot of plot development to entertain. If you enjoy stories about lesbian loving, “Somebody’s Watching” won’t disappoint.
