Watch what happens when a recently divorced and sexually repressed thirty-something woman transforms from vapid novice to bombshell maven in The Beginning. Going bravely where she’s never gone before, Candy Kavana is about to take the first steps towards her new life in Book 1 of Anita Cox’s intensely passionate and entertaining series, Dirty White Candy.
Traded in for a younger, newer model by the only man she’s ever made love to, thirty-something Candy Kavana finds herself craving human interaction of the carnal nature. Shy and sexually repressed, Candy turns to her best friend, Stacy, for advice. And what advice it is!
Candy nervously dives into sex therapy and what she discovers is more than mind-blowing sex. She discovers a side of herself she never dreamed existed. Now that she’s whet her whistle, she can’t get enough. Just how far is Candy willing to take her sexual exploration?
Jazmin was able to make a moderately good story shine. Outstanding narration! Her voice is imbued with emotion, playfulness and sexual enticement.
I like my erotica credible .... in story, in style of writing, and in narration. This book delivered! It was no struggle to suspend disbelief, and I felt right there with Candy on her adventure. And the narrator struck just the right tone of lust coupled with a novice temptress' occasional hesitation.
I enjoy this story immensely. Most erotica doesn't bother giving the characters any story to work with other than "here we are, now let's have dirty dirty sex. Candy became a real person to me. I reveled in her triumphs and revelations. My only criticism with the story was the sex scenes themselves. This is what reader picks up a book like this for, and I felt they were underdeveloped. What was said? How did this or that feel? Many of the things described are supposed to be firsts for Candy, yet we don't always get to know how she feels. I just felt the sex coould be more elaborate.
Now for the narrator. I realize that erotica and sex are still private matters that "polite society" doesn't discuss publicly, and narrators must feel bound by these strictures, if only subconsciously. Therefore I will forgive Ms Kinsington for her somewhat clinical reading style. That said, there are narrators who can perform this material with the passion and exuberance it deserves. Perhaps Ms Cox can seek such a reader for future releases. At any rate, I look forward to listening to the sequels and I will definitely seek out any future releases.
