The lovely Lauren of awesome sex blog Harlot Overdrive was kind enough to review The Mercy of Strange Men: Erotic Stories.
When it comes to my sexual fantasies, I’m not one for flowery romances or fantasy settings – I’ve no time for Reginald’s quivering member, as it were. I’m more interested in filthy alleyways and public parks at night, live sex shows and more physical discipline than I would necessarily want in real life. The Mercy Of Strange Men delivers this to me in spades.
Whether Nicols has her characters picking up band members from the Old Bar in Fitzroy for late night whiskey-fuelled threeways or partaking in suburban voyeuristic wanking sessions, she understands how to pace a story to keep you reading as your arousal increases. There were a few times when the dialogue veered close to feeling a little forced, but on the whole it is natural and flowing and worth your while.
Head on over and read the whole thing.
