Alvin and his wife Michelle are both out of work and in fear of losing their home when they bump into some of Michelle's guy friends at the college reunion. It turns out that Brad and a couple of his frat brothers have gotten into the adult film industry and they make Michelle an offer she can't refuse. Alvin knows the mortgage needs to get paid, but he doesn't fully trust his wife's motives as he signs the contract. Is she really only doing this for the money, or is there something going on between her and Brad?
If you could sum up Hard Times, Hot Wife in three words, what would they be?
Excruciating internal conflict
What did you like best about this story?
Gustav doesn't go down the typical overdone route of extreme submissiveness and degredation on the part of the husband, he gets right to the root of what makes this fetish compelling: The feeling of being torn between extreme arousal and incredible jealousy. This is a theme throughout all of his stories and it's in full effect here.
What does Catherine Carter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
She's got a nice voice, and is quite relaxing to listen to. It brings an edge that you don't get from text.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Yes, I had an extreme reaction.
Any additional comments?
If you're at all familiar with him this won't disappoint.
