Synopsis: A man with no name.
Once a week he frequents the bar where Mackenzie works. He orders the same drink, scotch on the rocks, and he sits back on the same lounge chair, quietly watching… waiting…
He has money – that much is obvious. He wears his tailored suits well. He smells divine, of expensive cologne, and orders his scotch from the top shelf.
He drinks alone, but he never leaves that way. With a snap of his fingers, a flick of his eyes, a glimmer of a smile, he gets the attention of the most attractive women in the bar.
This time his focus is on Mackenzie. Instead of feeling nervous Mackenzie is enthralled, intrigued… and aroused.
Please Note: This was originally written as a stand alone short story but after numerous requests for more, it has recently been turned into a series. This novella contains explicit sex scenes (including BDSM) and is for mature 18+ readers only.
My review: It took me approximately 30 minutes maybe less to read those 127 pages. It was 127 pages that I couldn’t find much fault in. Possibly because I was reading it quite late but possibly because I thought it was that good.
The writing style was spot on – not overly full of dialogue but in contrast not overly full of description. I felt it had a balance to it, one that worked well. Though usually I am open to anything, occasionally I find myself walking into a Dom/Sub story with my eyes already rolling.
This one, however, my eyes stayed firm in their sockets and didn’t roll once.
Mackenzie – or Mack – is a relatively balanced character and the main female character in this short serial. She works in an upscale bar in an upscale part of town catering to the whims of businessmen and high rollers. She is just a barmaid, one who has a fascination with a particular client. At first, I didn’t expect anything to come of it but I was wrong.
I won’t give any spoilers but the beginning, middle and ending were very good. That cliffhanger at the end? My word.
However, according to the author this was supposed to be a one part short, she added in the epilogue pre-publication of this installment and due to requests she wrote more of Mack and her mysterious client, which I will review in the coming hour.
I definitely enjoyed Eraser #1 and moved swiftly on to the next installment.
My rating: 4.5 stars
