Ready Steady Go!



Sacchi Green is here to review "Committee Work," a gorgeous little gem from Sudden Sex by Jeremy Edwards. Coincidentally, Sacchi and I will both be on the radio today on Sex Out Loud with Tristan Taormino! So be sure to tune in at 8 pm ET / 5 pm PT. You can check out this site for more info. Sacchi and I are on the show with Delilah Devlin, Shanna Germain, and Kristina Wright.


Now, here's Sacchi...

Jeremy Edwards has a way with words that can make you laugh, make you wriggle, and make getting to where you’re going nearly as much fun as the action when you get there. The phrase “Committee Work” in any other context would suggest the depths of boredom and inefficiency, but with Jeremy’s committee of two, the work on the agenda is finished in a breeze, and the characters get right down to the work that really needs to be done.

Sex in academia is a favorite theme in erotica for very good reasons, one being the shock value of contrasts. When the brisk, sleek professor refers to her own “erogenous ass,” the assistant professor’s “long-simmering” lust for her boss is startled into full boil. The deliciously sexy romping that ensues is made all the sexier by the fact that the professor sheds skirt, shoes, and undies, but retains, of course, her “adorably round-and-tiny glasses.”

Add to all this Jeremy’s deft hand with imagery and subtle wit, and “Committee Work” rates an A+, graded on a very “trim, gently rounded” curve.

Jeremy Edwards is the author of the erotocomedic novel Rock My Socks Off, the erotic story collection Spark My Moment, and, most recently, The Pleasure Dial: An Erotocomedic Novel of Old-Time Radio. His quirky, libidinous tales have appeared in over fifty anthologies, including recent volumes in the Mammoth Book of Best New Erotica series. Jeremy’s greatest goal in life is to be sexy and witty at the same moment—ideally in lighting that flatters his profile. Readers can drop in on him unannounced (and thereby catch him in his underwear) at www.jeremyedwardserotica.com.




Sacchi Green has published stories in a hip-high stack of books with erotically inspirational covers, and she’s also edited eight erotica anthologies, including Lipstick on Her Collar, Girl Crazy, Lesbian Cowboys (winner of a Lambda Literary Award,) Lesbian Cops, and Girl Fever. Find her at sacchi-green.blogspot.com or on Facebook.

Please do listen to the radio show if you have a chance! I'll be reading from "Burned," my scorching story in The Big Book of Bondage.

XXX,
Alison

It's a Jeremy day for me - I read 'Throwing Sugar' this morning, and I found it to be adorable :)

Oh, thank you so much, Sacchi, Alison, and Jo! I'm glowing with happiness.

And I laughed out loud at the way you ended the review, Sacchi, with the grading curve! (:v>

Have a great radio time—wow, what a cast!
