Greasy Boy by P.L. Ripley


Book Review

6/10

18806223

For Simon, sex had always been clean, gentle and safe. Now a chance encounter in a gas station bathroom gives Simon the opportunity to see what he has been missing. That is, if he can overcome his fear to delve into a greasy stranger through a glory hole. (M/M)

This is a BL story (boy love)/gay erotica.

Fair warning, there is mention of bodily fluid stains and a brief armpit action that might not be suitable for the squirmy. I know I kind of started to cringe at those parts, but other than that the story was interesting and steamy. The writing was well above what you expect for an erotica and a quickie story. Overall very enjoyable with the exception of those questionable moments mentioned above.

The publisher of this title, ForbiddenFiction (a part of Enspire Publishing), likes to stand out in their writing. Their stories lean more towards breaking out of the norm when it comes to the boundaries of original erotic fiction. Their stories tend to combine strong acts of sexuality with a bit more etiquette writing. Make sure you read the labels and tags for each title before buying to make sure you know exactly what you are going to be reading.

Now that we got that out of the way, there was one small repetition and slip in a scene regarding a character doing an action that had already taken place a few sentences before. This might have been caused due to fast writing or quick editing and doesn’t hinder the story or the quality of the writing. I must also point out that the writing does pick up and gets dirtier towards the end in regards to smut and BDSM situations. But even with this, the story is quite more than getting it on, it has a point and a lesson for the main character to learn.

Sum it up: A very greased up one night stand, well story takes place during the day but you get my point, that will make some jaws drop.

What I liked most: That the writer didn’t fear going outside the comfort zone of typical erotica stories.

What I liked the least: The like and dislike are kind of the same for me here. It had a very interesting premise, but there were some things that happened that kind of take away from the story.

Would I read the sequel(s)? Yes, as long as I ain’t eating while reading. But since this was a one-shot, will have to try his other works.

END An Apocalyptic Anthology is up next.
