Oral Sex Workshop (or Victoria, Your Twenty Minutes start NOW) - flash fiction

Each of the ladies in our writers group closed her eyes, opened a magazine, and pointed to her topic. Mine? Oral Sex Lessons! Here it is:

Caitlyn poked out her tongue while she stood in front of the mirror. How far should it stick out?

Glancing back down at the magazine, she quickly skimmed the relevant paragraph. Mmm. It didn't really say.

She squared her shoulders and stared at herself in the mirror. "Caitlyn," she said sternly to the skinny young fair-haired freckled woman, "you are going to do this."

Her reflection seemed to pale.

"Yes, you are," she insisted firmly. "Darling. Naming no names." Caitlyn rolled her eyes as she mimicked the throaty tones of her older sister's best friend, Juliana. Then she ground her teeth together as she and her reflection glowered at each other.

Plopping back down on the bed, she snatched up the magazine, determined to get the hang of this oral sex thing. But the words blurred as she remembered last night.

As she reviewed the flow of the conversation, she stiffened. Thethebitch. Juliana had brought up the topic herself, right at the start of the night. She'd toyed with the strawberry from her champagne, sliding it in and out of her mouth. Caitlyn snorted. Was that supposed to be seductive? It made her sick, all that spit sticking to the strawberry.

Caitlyn's throat tightened, her bottom lip wobbled, and two tears trickled down her face. Hayden had stared, fascinated, at Juliana throughout the long excruciating evening. She'd leaned across the table, baring even more of her huge boobs, and had said with a knowing wink, "Darling, some people, naming no names, are quite talented in that direction."

There was a knock at the door. Damn. Hayden. She'd only got to the tongue loosening exercise.

Quickly wiping her face, she raced to the door, dropping the magazine, still in her hands, onto the dining room table. Hayden stood in the doorway with a bunch of roses, grinning. Before she could say a word, he swept her up in a big bear hug, then carried her inside. "Sweetheart, it's so good to see you." He lowered his curly head far down to hers and kissed her. His trademark, yummy, sigh-worthy, soft, gentle kiss. As he drew away, he laughed, as he always did, at her sigh. "What about that Juliana last night? Dahling," he said, his voice a low, throaty growl, "Some people are quite talented in that direction." His blue eyes twinkled as he chuckled. "God, I laughed all the way home."

"Youyou weren'tuminterested in that wholeumoral sex thing?" Caitlyn said, licking her dry lips.

His eyes fell to the magazine article on the table. Its huge headlines seemed to have transplanted themselves across her heated forehead.


"Baby," he said softly, "we'll get to that one day, but for now, let's go out to dinner. We can take things as slowly as you like."

As he went off in search of a vase, Caitlyn breathed out a whole lungful of air. She picked up the magazine and went to throw it into the rubbish bin.

But a sudden giggle tickled at her throat. The picture of the banana drew her eyes to the article's first key point: How to Get Him To Go Down There More Often.

Maybe she wouldn't throw the magazine away.

Forever reviewed by Night Owl!

After Forever was featured on USA Today (in the company of some other great books), my next thrill was to receive this great review from Night Owl Reviews.


Eternity, #1 

Amy Copeland was raised in the foster care system, the streets and Vegas. Amy has trouble with relationships and always picks the wrong one so she stays away from all relationships now. Amy’s best friend moves around with Amy and is the one person that she can trust. 

Dean Chambray is a hot and sexy man whose main business is not always on the up and up. He is basically a crime boss looking to take down another crime boss. Before Amy, women lined up for him and Dean had the pick of them. Dean falls for Amy at first sight. 

The chemistry between Dean and Amy is blistering. The sex scenes are hot and spicy. When Dean is faced with an issue with Amy, rather than talk to her he kicks her out. Dean is not the nicest guy and Amy leaves everything behind to protect what Dean has no idea about.

Forever is the first book in the Eternity series by Allyson Young. I found this book well written. The main and secondary characters were interesting and realistic. This book will suck you in and not let you go until the very end. Overall, this was a great story. I can’t wait to read the next book. I hope we get to see these characters again in the future.

Book Blurb for Forever

Dean Chambray is an arrogant, handsome, undercover crime boss, awaiting a certain man he must take down. Women line up for him, but when they put out, he puts them out.
Enter Amy Copeland, product of foster care, the streets and glitter of Vegas. Resolving to change her life, she abstains from relationships.

These damaged souls meet, and beneath the searing lust lies a deeper sense of belonging. Cautiously building a life together, Dean falls back into misogyny. Betrayed, Amy flees. 

Recognizing his folly, he struggles to find her, while the pincers tighten around his small organization. Desperate, Dean resorts to kidnapping when she refuses to return.

It takes patience and considerable effort to convince Amy to trust him again, and accept he loves her. Then, caught up in a pre-emptive strike, her life is at risk. Dean must rescue Amy from certain death, making her his own, forever.
