2.0 out of 5 starsDo not buy, bad content
Reviewed in the United States on December 31, 2020
I always feel bad reading erotica, particularly of this genre because it often stretches stereotypes and fetishes LGBT traits. Unfortunately, in many cases, good sensual stories are not told revolving around trans or gender non-conforming characters, and I am willing to accept a great deal from authors willing to include those characters in sensual narratives. This book crosses a line in that regard. The fetishization of gender nonconformity is bad but worse is the misogamy and misunderstanding of what it means to be a woman. Overall, I felt like this book very much disappointed in every regard.
This reminds me more than anything of a gender bent twist on the Handmaid's Tale, with the U.S. turning into a rigid police state. The current situation could lend itself to draconian measures by the government(though the reaction to Coronavirus is not, as suggested, an overreaction. Tens of thousands dead and we're not out of it yet). There is a strong element of fear throughout, with violence and punishment all about. This is also what the author describes as lesson learning, as the main character starts out as a jerk who got lucky and doesn't appreciate it. Intimacy during transition is explored, in a way not often depicted, as opposed to the more common instant swap. Some of Belle's recent work has been less graphic than earlier stories, as there has been some issue with categorization of the more explicit stories by authors lately. That is not the case here, though it takes some time before it becomes truly exciting, partly because the main character is so unappealing, you don't really like sharing his personal moments. It's only when his femininity begins asserting itself that you're drawn in to the moment. It also has the thrill of fear mixed with heightened sensations to enhance the experience. It's unlikely that a virus could actually swap genders, but otherwise, this scenario is not far from possible with the next(and there will be a next) pandemic. If you're interested in the author's work and want to get advance looks and influence her writing, she's started a Patreon page where you can share thoughts with her and find out what she's up to. No telling what might happen, authors on there go off in all kinds of directions. Come by and see.
3.0 out of 5 starsPandemic Girl: the title & Alyson Belle gives the plot away: a virus turns men into women

This has everything, the current pandemic which turns men into women; not especially erotic and more romantic than arousing, the story movies. It has hetero sex, transgender sex, some satire, some wit,some romance, and lesbian sex beteween two men who used to be women. This shoe is on the other foot story is a good time killer
There was some pretty weird misogyny throughout that kind of reduced my overall enjoyment. I couldn't tell whether the main character was being written as a douche at the beginning, or whether it reflected the author's own views.
