Hi all! I’m prepping to pack my kids off to school, so this week’s reading has been spotty, at best. However, I ran across an interesting erotica FREEBIE recently–and it kinda stuck with me. Max Sebastian’s MY WIFE, THE SEDUCTRESS is voyeurism at it’s finest.
About the book:
Joshua Shaw is amused at his wife’s clear attraction to the boy she used to babysit as a teenager, now that he’s all grown up. Robert Donovan has turned into a fine figure of a man going into his sophomore year at college, and he’s even on track to make the football team. No wonder he gets Tessa all hot under the collar.
Feeling the urge to tease her about her little crush, Josh invites him over for some regular summer work at their house.
But teasing soon gives way to a surprising fantasy for them both — of Tessa seducing the younger, athletic college stud while her husband is away at work. In the heat of the summer, with Tessa contending with her new status as a stay-at-home mom, a husband’s quiet encouragement might just drive his insatiable wife into the arms of another man.
I really wasn’t sure if I would like this one. The “skeevy potential” seemed inordinately high. I mean, a married man getting excited about the prospect of his wife seducing another man? Hmmm….
Anywho, I thought, V, it’s free! If it stinks, you don’t even have to return it… But what I found is, I actually liked it!
Josh and Tessa felt real. I’ve been a new/young mother. It’s hard to separate that motherhoodness–for both husband and wife. Caring for a baby saps strength and tests bonds, mainly because one partner, or both, feels unfulfilled.
Tessa’s clearly having some pangs about giving up her job to raise a baby–and Josh is working longer hours to compensate for lost pay. Their love life is okay–not feeling stale exactly, but a chance encounter–Tessa meets (of all people) the grown version of a boy she used to babysit, Robert, and it sparks something in her. Josh is blown away watching their bashful reunion. Tessa is one step shy of twirling her hair around a finger, while Robert’s glowing puppy-dog eyes don’t even try to hide his attraction. For the first time in, perhaps, years Josh sees Tessa as a vibrant sexual creature, not just his bedmate/wife/mother of his child.
The story is told from Josh’s point-of-view, so we have a front row seat on his voyeuristic journey. Not only does he grant Tessa a “hall pass” he arranges for Robert to come to their home regularly, to do fixer-upper projects over the duration of Robert’s summer break before going back to college. (FYI–Robert’s 20 and a strapping football player, so this isn’t a pedophilia case) In fact, Josh actively encourages Tessa to flirt with Robert all day long, with extremely spicy results. Tessa practically attacks Josh when he returns home from work, having suffered extreme sexual desire all day while doting on the attractive young Robert.
Okay, this is erotica, so, it’s NOT safe for the kiddos. In truth, I’m not sure it was safe for ME! I know there’s a buried part of the Hubs’s reptile brain that gets off on other men complimenting me, finding me attractive. Well, Josh takes that to the 18th Level. His voyeuristic cravings lead Tessa to acting out some of Josh’s very kinky fantasies creating a combustible passion for Tessa, Josh and Robert. Passion that is handled swiftly, and often. And repeatedly, and….
It’s a fun perspective in erotica. First, it’s male POV. Second, it’s a committed couple exploring all new parts of their relationship. Third, it’s hot, but not sloppy. A lot of the sex happens at one remove–Josh watching through a window or via FaceTime, or even simply hearing about it later. Fourth, it’s different–no Alpha males, no BDSM, no meet-cutes or brooding, damaged leads–just a normal couple who spice up their sex life in an unconventional way. Tessa and Josh never stop exploring this new outlet, or each other. The bitterness and jealousy Josh expected to experience is overshadowed by his ravenous hunger for more of Tessa, especially after she’s been active with Robert. So, if you read erotica, this is worth a try.
