When Victoria O’Connell travels to meet her long time pen pal, the last thing she expects is to find herself as the star of a porn movie. Yes, the sex was amazing but a girl likes to know when she’s being filmed.

Shane and Lucas need Victoria for their own movie. She’s appalled yet intrigued at their proposition. Good girls don’t screw strangers. But then Victoria never said she was good.  

Joey’s Review:

Eat Me Up is a short erotic piece, featuring Victoria, from Australia. Victoria comes to Resort City, Florida to meet a lifelong pen-pal. They have an alcohol-fueled tryst, which pen-pal promptly posts online, thanks to his secretly hidden camera. 

Victoria finds this out the hard way when a passenger on a bus instantly recognizes her from an amateur porn site.

As if that isn't enough humiliation, the stranger, Shane, tries to enlist her to perform sex acts on film as reference for a video game he's developing.

Eventually, upon meeting Shane's business and sexual-encounter partner, Lucas, Victoria agrees, and the sex-fest begins.

The heat is high as Victoria finds herself the center of a testosterone sandwich. But will business remain business, or will the trio experience more?

I have to admit, I'm not a tremendous fan of erotica. Usually. Mostly because my brain wants to know why feelings come to light, and how that journey transpires.

Eat Me Up definitely has heated sexual encounters, heavy on the menage theme. If you're looking for sizzle, you'll find it here. The biggest drawback for me, though, was not witnessing an emotional connect that showed the reasoning for the trio to ultimately declare their love for one another. 

Especially in such a short space (44 pages), you have to expertly maneuver that show vs. tell rule, and it felt as though I had to take the author's word for it. But hey, that might be about me. Not being skilled at erotica-reading, maybe I'm missing the (smutty) point! But like I said, this story is heavy on sizzle, so if you're looking for a to-the-point, naughty read, Eat Me Up is for you.
