Jo Hutchinson is obsessed with a man she's never seen - only heard. Her late-night calls from the office to the mysterious "Mr. D." grow increasingly intimate, until they finally become full-blown phone sex. Still, Jo doesn't dare meet him. Instead, she embarks on a series of sizzling sexual escapades with other guys, sharing every sweaty moment with Mr. D. afterward, a passion-by-proxy arrangement they both get off on. But even as she's charting brave new naughty worlds, Jo knows that it's all really for Mr. D. Every pleasure she experiences - eagerly, athletically, vocally - is to please him.
Immersed in fantasy, reality just slips away - even the chance at that elusive combination of love and lust. Her new tenant, Patrick, an Irish hunk in geek's clothing, is totally into her. And in her lucid moments, Jo knows she feels the same. Can she tear herself away from her kinky dreamworld long enough to appreciate what's right in front of her? Or has Mr. D. ruined her for real life?

I knew when I decided to review this book that it would have some sex-scenes in it. What I wasn't prepared for was a plethora of sexual situations. I felt like I was watching an orgy of horny teenagers while they were on ecstasy. Every time I flipped the page I was reading about dicks and pussies and people coming. There were also some BDSM scenes that, while admittedly arousing, was a little shocking.
I always have enjoyed erotica as long as it had an actual plot to it, whether it be video or books. Despite all the blatant sexuality, I did enjoy the storyline to this novel. The electricity between Patrick and Jo was sizzling. I was a little weirded out that Patrick had his foreskin (probably because I've never seen a guy with one). I also get a little tired of reading erotica novels where the guy has a huge dick. Let's be real, ladies ... how many guys have you known in your lifetime that have been enormously hung? I can tell you, in my lifetime, I've experienced that only once and he was so enormous that I had to tell him to stop once we started having sex. I don't mind a little stretching, but I prefer not to be torn from my cootie-coo to my butthole.
Okay, I realize that last may have been too much information, but I was simply trying to make the point that enormously well-hung men just don't happen every day. Yet they seem to pop up in every erotica story you read. It just gets a little tiresome. Show me an erotica author that can take an average-hung guy screwing the mess out of some dame and I'll be turned on more by the reality of that than what appears to be the norm in these stories.
So, simply put: If you like the usual erotica stories with skinny girls and well-endowed men mixed with a little phone sex and BDSM, then this one's for you.
