5.0 out of 5 stars A plot into the mind of a fetish Aug. 28 2010
By Lemon Solace - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
First I must say this is a very psychologically arousing read and I truly enjoyed getting into the minds of Angie and Mike as they explore wife watching.

That said when it gets hot it gets graphic - separating itself from romance novels which can bring you to the edge, then leave you looking for a way/person to finish the job.

This book does not leave you wanting more...it takes you all the way.

Overall a good story, I found Mike's (the husband) personal background for exploring/watching his wife "play" to be interesting. In some ways I'm sure all men can relate to his "past" from some angle even if it doesn't apply directly.

Bennett plays the third wheel or "extra male" and plays his role very well and I actually enjoyed his involvement in the story as he never takes anything away or becomes overpowered in the story.

There's a BDSM club involved at one point too, which I felt wasn't very original (in any form) and really could have lived without, but - BUT it does lead off to a racy twist written in a way that got my heart thumping outside of the club.

Ironically this scene eventually disappointed me too, simply for the fact that its VERY underwritten. The details are sparse, the exposition lacking and I simply wanted more from it - which is surprisingly frustrating considering how the rest of the book is very detailed and in your head.

In this sense that scene felt almost tacked on and ironically, if truly explored might have added a good chunk content (and pages) to the book if one considered the implications of what could have happened - if the twist didn't end the way it does oh so very quickly.

Overall a good read and well worth your money if your looking for a nice mfm wife watching themed book, this will keep you reading to the last page.

Its too bad that last page feels like the end of a journal entry rather then an ending, hopefully we might see a sequel of a sorts?

5.0 out of 5 stars Well-written Porn? April 25 2013
By J. Michael Riley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I don't expect much from porn stories, and I'm not usually disappointed.

Most of what's available ranges from pretty bad to wholesale crap.

So it's a real shocker to run across a story with an actual STORY, character development, complex relationships, and educated English grammar and spelling!

This story is longer than most available in this genre from Amazon (or pretty much anywhere, I guess), but it is a good read throughout. Sexy and somehow realistic. What does a couple ACTUALLY say to one another when they are experimenting at the edges of propriety and convention? Not the hackneyed stereotypical things that most writers throw in to keep the sex scenes from banging together (so to speak!), but real talking and caring dialog.

What an idea!

Porn? Yes, I suppose, but much more solid prose and more mainstream than a lot of what's available.

And yet, really HOT.

Five Stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wow March 5 2011
By J. Allen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I can't even recall how I stumbled on this book, but once I read the summary, I knew I needed to read it. I definitely connected with Mike, the narrator. I haven't really read anything from a man's point of view, and it was refreshing. The sex scenes were really hot, but it wouldn't have been as good if the emotional stuff wasn't there too. I also appreciated that it wasn't all perfect, things happened that they hadn't expected, and they had to work through them, which seemed a lot more realistic to me.

If you are curious by this kind of lifestyle, as I am, I would definitely recommend this book.

The story looks at the characters' desires in light of their histories. It has more depth than I usually see in this genre. The sex scenes are hot.

E. M. Hillwood, Just Say What's on Your Mind (BookSurge, 2008)

Erotica is a very interesting field these days. Even while it's exploding in popularity, both in the self-publishing world and the major labels (who would have imagined even ten years ago that my local Half Price Books would have an entire section dedicated to what they euphemistically call "erotic romance"? And that I'd be able to get Jaid Black and Megan Hart books there? [I grant you, it's two shelves' worth. BUT STILL.]), it's actually increasing in quality. I find myself utterly befuddled by this, since almost by definition the more of a genre that's getting written, the more of it's going to suck. (To cross this hypothesis over to a different medium, consider radio-friendly pop. For every Michelle Branch, there are ninety-nine Christina Aguilera clones. Not that I'm going to name *cough*Pink*cough* names or anything.) But it's almost uncanny in my recent adventures in Kindle porn, excluding those idiotic collections of newsgroup postings some poor fool tried to pass off as a short story collection: the more recent the work I'm reading, the better it is, quality-wise at least. All of which is a preface to my saying that while I had a number of problems with E. M. Hillwood's vanity-pubbed 2008 book Just Say What's on Your Mind, and it's not anywhere near the same ballpark as Hart or Black (or even the same postal code as Selena Kitt or Portia da Costa), it blows the doors off the stuff Olympia Press and Bumblebee were publishing in the seventies and eighties. Not necessarily in subject matter--I can't remember who said it's all been done before, but nowhere is that truer than in porn--but in style. For one thing, even the vanity-pubbed stuff today is better-proofread. (I find it interesting that the most error-free books coming out of presses like iUniverse, CreateSpace, and BookSurge are porn....)

Now, to get back to Just Say What's on Your Mind: there's a couple who've been married for ten years, Mike and Angie. They're still frisky, but family life tends to get in the way, and let's face it, familiarity breeds contempt. After some discussions, they decided tentatively to bring someone else into the mix, and meet the older, and somewhat mysterious, Bennett. Once they decide they like him, things happen, and all is well and good (save one problem which I'll get to in a minute, and it has to do with the author, not the characters). But as time goes on, things get weirder and weirder--and eventually Mike realizes that maybe everything's not quite as equitable as he thinks it is, leading Mike and Angie to seriously re-evaluate their relationship. Things go even farther downhill when Mike's ex-fiancee, a schemer who may have ulterior motives for getting involved, comes back on the scene.

Okay, so here's that problem I referred to earlier. I mentioned the predictability of erotica, but that in itself isn't the problem, really. If you've read a handful of erotic novels and you don't know what you're getting yourself into, that's your fault, not the book's. It not for nothing that I call erotica "romance novels for guys". No, it's that whenever an author wants to convey "edgy", not in his writing but in character development, they all fall back on S&M. Come on, people, can you really think of no other interesting, outre fetishes to work with? It's not like you can't portray power games using other situations. But the S&M scene in the erotic novel is right up there with the messy-breakup scene in the romance; it's so well-trod and so easily done that no one thinks to go beyond it, save those who actually want to do something original. And to Hillwood's credit, he (I'm assuming Hillwood is a he based on a few markers; that would be a bit complex to go into, but I'll touch on one briefly next paragraph) does explore this in the subplot with the ex-fiancee, and more interestingly he pretty much gets it right. Which makes me wonder all the more why we had to go there. And I am perfectly willing to admit that's my own prejudice; maybe there's so much S&M in erotica because there really is that much of a market for it. I've always found it a bit off-putting, so judge accordingly. Your mileage may, and probably will, vary.

Okay, there are more things than one that make me strongly suspect Hillwood is male, but since I said I'd give you one, I'll give you the real kicker. Have you ever noticed that most of the gay male characters being written these days are being written by women? That's a particular kink in the system I haven't gotten round to exploring yet, but I find it utterly fascinating (and don't just think erotica here; Poppy Z. Brite, for one, has a fondness for creating exquisitely-detailed gay males in her mainstream fiction, and was doing it long before it was cool; so was Kathe Koja, though she always seemed more drawn to lesbian culture to me, at least back in the nineties). Perhaps women are simply more willing than men to think about two males being, well, tender with one another, to scrabble for a euphemism I can actually use in an Amazon review. Hillwood presents us with a number of threesome scenes here involving two men and one woman, and the two men never touch. There's not even an accidental brushing of a bare arm on a bare thigh or the like. Now, strip away the fantasy aspects of such a scene in your head and think about simple mechanics; when you get three people that close together, the idea that there are two of them who will never touch is, well, kind of absurd. In fact, it's darn near impossible. Who would write it that way except someone who has a vested interest in not appearing bi (or gay) himself? Thus, a pretty clear marker you've got a male author. Which has nothing to do with the quality of the book, unless you strongly prefer your threesomes to be bi all the way around. Once again, that's a judgment call I'll leave to you.

As I've intimated a couple of times, when you compare this to other erotica, it comes out looking pretty good. But I rate things based on the entire body of what I've read, and so I have to compare it to mainstream novels as well, where it doesn't fare quite as well. But despite the seemingly low rating, and a few things that may or may not be flaws depending on your outlook, as noted above (and it's refreshing to say that all of these are surface, rather than structural, flaws), I'd say that if you're looking for erotica, don't toss this one away simply because it's a vanity-published novel; E. M. Hillwood may be no Jaid Black, but he's worth looking into if you want a change of pace from what you can (amazing!) find at the local Half-Price Books. **
