Review: Hand in Glove
Author: Yvonne Sarah Lewis
Publisher: Torrid Books
Genre: Contemporary Erotica
Release Date: August 2012
The mumbled words, “My pussy’s cold”, during a cold winters morning walk did not fall on deaf ears. “So’s my willie”, Eileen was startled to find that someone was close enough to hear her. Hugh, a young man she meets while walking offers her a glove to keep her warm, but she declines stating that she already has two. He elaborates that it is not for her hands, but her girlie bits.
Idle conversations evolve into revelations of the most intimate of confessions between strangers. Offering to share a secret, Eileen invites Hugh to her room to discuss things more privately. A widow of five years, Eileen has missed the innocent touch of a man. She shyly asks if he will simply hold her while they sleep, but things didn’t go just as she anticipated. Bodies aroused from simple contact leaves one satisfied and the other not. They continue their new sleeping arrangements allowing for mutual exploration and curiosity.
A short and quirky read that left me chuckling in some spots and in awe in others I liked how their friendship evolved to encompass what they needed from each other and more. A lonely widow and a handsome younger man finding comfort in each other. Not an unrealistic storyline, but throw in the glove and you have a very interesting opening conversation between your characters.
