This book is part of the "BM8 erotic book spiral".
This is a very english story - quite a fantasy, or maybe several "happenings" put together in one.

This is one of the *many* spiral books that arrived in Athens while I was away on vacation. I will try to read them all as time permits.

Link to the spiral's journal.

Once in a while when reading a book a specific phrase or metaphor jumps out in its perfection.
It happened with Neighborhood Watch --> "Max landed a second slice with the crop. Again it whistled. For a second time the rusty razor of agony scored her buttocks." ~ p.137
Maybe I've already become jaded by the books read so far in the spiral. This metaphor brought the tension back to life again.

Lisette Ashton's book reads like a parody of Desperate Housewives (especially w/ the introduction and epilogue), or any other TV soap opera. There are numerous direct references to the genre, in case you didn't get it the first time.
It's evenly written; the episodic structure of the book keeps the reader's interest to the end. Several confrontations could have done with more climactic resolutions, eg. Tanya doesn't earn a sexual reward for all her good-neighborly efforts, and Joanne deserves to get more than just a verbal reprimand from Ted & Phil.
Overall well-paced and well-written, with few if any excesses. I absolutely enjoyed the gimp's sappy romantic fantasies when he falls in love with his domineering Goddess! A nice touch by the author, to add this mocking tone to the hot scenes.

More of Ashton's humour.
