Grade A Ladyporn for us married people!
I rarely wear my husband out, but the last day or two we've been like rabbits! Why? Because I read the THE MARRIAGE DIARIES ">Marriage Diaries by Erika Wilde. Holy Hotness! This series is everything a short hot novella series should be. I swear, the author was IN MY HEAD, reading all of my fantasies! I have been married over 20 years, and I just loved reading about a hot as hell, sexy couple that was in a long term marriage as well.
Jillian and Dean Noble have been happily married for almost 20 years. Jillian got pregnant very young, and they married. At 38, both boys have moved out of the house, and Jillian decides it's time to step up their sex life. Dean is a hot ex-navy seal now running his own security company. They are still pretty young and vibrant, but their sex life, like most long-married couples, has become routine and vanilla. Jillian wants to change that and explore a whole new side to their marriage now that the kids are gone.
The story begins with Jillian dropping by her husband's office and seducing him for the first time ever.
"I didn't mean to get you so hot and bothered"
While they'd never played at being dominant and submissive in the bedroom, Jillian knew that Dean had always been holding back the dominant side of his personality. So after a hot as fuck office desk scene, they talk, like a good couple should. Dean is concerned she has been unhappy, but Jillian explained that she loved him, but now wanted to really explore their sexual relationship for the first time without always having kids and their friends underfoot.
When Dean comes home that night, he lets loose some the man he's been holding back. And holy fuck...Dean is amazing. (I just had to go find my husband while writing this review...reading it again was still just as hot!)
I couldn't believe The Awakening was only 35 pages. But I'll tell you, it was more than enough. The characters were likable, but this series is pure lady porn for married people. But it was done just right. Nothing too gross, no overly flowery words, and just enough kink to be realistic and not over the top. After reading The Awakening, my note to Erika Wilde said:
Ooooh! Holy fuck! You're in my brain! Give me more!!! .mobi please! I loved the first! Hurry! :)
About the series:
Each of these books are about 40 pages. They are quick reads and they are good for pre-bedtime reading (if you know what I mean). If you are reading these alone, make sure you have a toy nearby, or visit my erotic toystore to pick up some of the items you might find in the books. Or toys you'll need while reading it. :-D
These books can be read individually (My vajayjay needed a break so I read another book in between).
My husband and I went through a similar sexual revitalization after about 19 years of marriage (thanks to some of my favorite sexy books). We both started sharing our fantasies more, and my husband's dominant side is hot as hell. He and Dean actually reminded me of each other. In the last 3 years, our marriage has become so much stronger and way hotter now that we finally came clean (or dirty) with our fantasies and brought some of the kink in. So I really related to these books. I realized that some of that hot spark we've had has been dying out again, but this series brought it right back!
So Erika, I thank you, and so does Mr. Ana. My vajayjay however (and the muscle I pulled) are not as happy with you afterwards.
-Reading about a couple who have been married for 19 years.
Rating: 5 stars for a ladyporn novella series, 5+++ heat
It seems strange to give this 5 stars when there really isn't much much character development. But that's not what we read this for. You know how sometimes you just need a good hard fucking? That's what this is like. Sometimes you need a little sex with your story, sometimes a little story with your sex. This series is the latter, and that's just fine for a change.
Usually when I read a novelette, I feel it is missing something. How good can something be in 40 pages? But I have to tell you, these deliver what they are intended for. Lady Porn for the married moms (though I think a guy would like these too). There was just enough story to keep you interested, and the characters were very likable. I never felt like I needed more story, it was just right. I look forward to reading Erika Wilde's next story and see what her spin-off series is all about.
