I'd been a big fan of Wretched Grace for as long as I could remember, and when the opportunity came to sneak into their hotel room and see them before the concert, there was no way I could resist. It was a hell of a lot easier to get past security than I could have imagined but I was in for a big surprise. I got through because the security guard thought I was there for an altogether different reason. So did the band. I found out when I was suddenly on my knees.
"Great Erotic Variety"
Roger was nothing like men my age, and I suppose that played a large role in my fascination with him. We flirted for quite some time before one evening he finally asked me out. Of course, I agreed. Before long I was swept away by his kiss, his touch, and more. I don't know how much came from his experience and abilities and how much was in my head, but I do know that the time I had was like none other. That's only one of the sexy tales you'll find in this collection.
