Novellus superbus!
Goodreads appetizer: When Alison meets Andrew ("call me Drew"), she instantly pegs him as a moron. He's a total bad boy and does nothing but chain smoke and brag about his stream of past conquests. Yet, much to her confusion, Alison still finds herself attracted to him. She's not had sex in a while, so Alison figures there's no harm in going home with him to get herself a bit of rough.

My Thoughts: Based on the title alone I expected this short story by Lucy Felthouse to be an erotica novella having a bit of BDSM and a bit of rough sex, which belief was reinforced when I read the blurb. I started out envisioning Drew as one of those irresistible bad boys who exude a vibe of danger yet give you thrills just by looking your way.

And maybe it was because of my expectations that I felt a bit lukewarm. Although Drew is made to sound such a bad boy with tattoos and smoking/cursing, yet somehow he seemed tame to me. The sex scenes between Alison and Drew were hot and they definitely made the story steamy and the reader fan herself when they got between the sheets, but based on the title I would have liked their sexual encounters to be a bit kinkier, even more forceful.

Verdict:  A Bit of Rough was a great steamy story, which packed more than enough heat for its shortness. Lucy Felthouse's detailed yet atmospheric writing definitely made the pages sizzle! If you are looking for a thrilling, sexy and satisfying read A Bit of Rough is the story for you! (Just don't expect anything kinky or too spiced up.)
