SUITE SEDUCTION by Annick Clair is a steamy short that follows Jeremy Colbrick and Dani Quinn. Jeremy, one of four Colbrick boys, is working late one night in his family's furniture store. We learn within the first few pages that his sexual partner, Dani, will be coming in. Dani, a voluptuous sex on legs knock-out, shows up and immediately the chemistry between the two characters is evident.
For the first half of the story, we watch them play their little game of tease and tantalize, exploring and pleasing each other in magnificently sensual ways. But about two-thirds of the way through, Ms. Clair throws a twist that I didn't see coming. Yet the twist pushed the story to a new level, one that captures a depth in the characters. What had initially been a steamy, gratuitous read, enjoyable and well-written, but all about sex, turned into a love story.
There were several aspects to this story that I really enjoyed. The twist came as a pleasant surprise, giving each character depth and complexity. I found myself enjoying the sex, but once the twist pushed the story in a different direction, I enjoyed watching the characters and cared about them on a whole new level.
The author's use of language is exquisite, actions, sensations, and emotions all expressed with precise language to evoke specific images and feelings. I always admire when an author is able to portray the content of a story vividly, in a way that brings the story to life.
Being a short story, Ms. Clair did an excellent job of keeping to a manageable story line and didn't divert from the central plot. Still, there were a few aspects to the tale that felt a bit contrived in order to tie ends together neatly by the end.
Overall, the story was hot and provocative, well worth reading.
