Book Review

This is the first of three off the chart sexually explosive novellas that more than underscore the book cover's statement: Sometimes sex is the only way to say "I love you". The three main women in Raw Silk are certainly sexually creative in their own right, but then when they interact the sparks turn into roaring flames! I found myself feeling very affectionate to all three for their individuality and their intense eroticism. This is a most delectable story and I definitely recommend that it be savored!

June Philips, a junior associate in finance, is married to Ashlyn who is an artist. June and Ashlyn are totally devoted to each other although they definitely are open to enjoy some three-way action on occasion. June's firm is wooing a potential new client represented by Katerina VanderVort. Kat, for short, makes some very obvious and persistent moves on June. June is flooded with confusing yet highly charged sexual attraction to Kat. Uh-oh! Things have certainly gotten rather complicated for June even with her discussing all the details with her wife.

Ashlyn, generally called Ash, is not simply a fluffy headed artist. She is the foundation and dominant partner with June. This balance took a little bit of time to clarify for me and that made for an eye-opening experience. Additionally, she remotely choreographs and eases June's confusing discomfort with Kat in one of the most fascinating scenes I have ever read. I like June a good deal, but I loved Ash!

Kat knows what she wants and reads others fairly well. She is convinced early on that June is attracted to her. Katy bar the door!! Watching Kat in action was more than delightful, I certainly learned a few things, too. She is also fairly quick to pick up on an easier and more successful course of action. She seems to have the heart of a tigress, but the knowhow of a very successful businesswoman. I was glad I was in the audience as Kat's machinations entirely floored me. I was so glad that June had Ash looking after her!

This novella is not to be missed for its high level sexual heat and the three women involved. Oh my goodness, my tall, cool, icy drink was a necessary companion while I became completely involved with the story. By the way, during that most fascinating scene I referenced, the fabric of Kat's outfit became a large point of interest and it was raw silk...emphasis on raw!
