Review: Exotic Indulgence by Various

Author - Various
Genre - Erotica
Series - Bandicoot Cove #1
Format - eBook (101p.)
Rating - DNF

It’s time for an indulgence, or two…or three.

Bandicoot Cove, Book 1

There’s something magical about Bandicoot Cove. It’s where Kylie Sullivan’s dream of managing a luxury, five-star resort is about to come true. And it’s where people tend to fall in love. Kylie should know. She’s fallen hard—for three very different men.

There’s Brad, who knows just how to relieve her stress and send her body on a crash course through pleasure. Hemi, her untamed Maori, who awakens her primitive side. And Finn, the sexy bartender whose specialty is Screaming Orgasms.

The three men fulfill all her sexual fantasies, but Kylie knows reality will eventually set in and she’ll have to choose. But how? For now she decides not to decide—at least until she makes sure the resort’s soft opening comes off without a hitch.

As far as Brad, Hemi and Finn are concerned, Kylie’s life is too much work and not enough play. The only choice they plan to give her is to say yes to their wildly passionate proposal…

Warning: Three sexy men pleasing one uninhibited woman—how much more warning do you need? This short story is long on heat, with a drool-worthy setting and sexual interludes in the office, at the beach and the bar. You want a day job like this.

Yawn… This short story just did not work for me. It seemed forced. And the internal monolog was oppressive. (Or maybe that was just the info-dumps.) The characters are juvenile. Especially Kylie. Who, by page 3, was already TSTL. And across 3 authors, she never improved. Even the sex was lame. Exotic Indulgence had so much potential, but the ball was dropped before it even made it out of the factory.

I really dislike DNFing books. I was able to make it partway through chapter 3. The only thing that makes this easier, is the fact that it was free. Had I paid… I would not be a happy camper. Overall, there was nothing there to hold my interest. It was boring. Plot… nothing but a crutch to get to the sex. The sex… sub-par. Writing… nothing special. Dialog, what there was of it… contrived. I can't recommend this one, but if you decide to risk it, I hope you enjoy it more than I did.
