Sharon Wachsler has thoughtfully and thoroughly reviewed Giselle Renarde's story Double Dutch from The Big Book of Bondage. (As a side note, authors, Cleis will be sending out your contributor copies shortly, and I'll be hitting you with payment today and tomorrow!)
Sharon says: The tension in "Double Dutch" starts with the word go. Actually, it starts with the first two words: "Damn, girl!" and draws the reader in with the lively language of four passionate teammates.
She continues: In addition to being sexy, "Double Dutch" brings a lot of sweetness and fun into the mix. The characters have a camaraderie that is infectious, carried in the fast beats of their dialogue and the familiarity of their clothes, their gear, and the space they inhabit. A deeper connection than you'd guess at the beginning is revealed in looks and touches and unfolding history.
