Jeff and Ashlyn are stuck in the virgin zone. What’s that? Well, it’s when two people have been dating for several months, but they have yet to make it past first base. The longer it takes for one of them to make a move, the harder it is to just do it already.
But things are about to change.
Jeff has plans. So does Ashlyn. Mission: Drive each other crazy.
If it works, they’ll both get what they want this Valentine’s Day.
Release Date: February 10, 2020
Jeff and Ashlyn are both nineteen year old college students who were introduced in Outcast. If you haven’t read that one, I’d definitely recommend it as it provides added glimpses of their characters. (Plus it’s a good story!)
“Sweet Dreams” is a short story that tells of of Jeff and Ashlyn’s hook-up after months of dating. On one hand, I’m a little bummed that this wasn’t expanded into a novella so we could have gotten more build-up. I would have definitely liked to read more about their dating days.
“‘Five seconds after you’re out this door, I’ve got my cock in my hand. I think about you naked. On your back. Bent over. On top of me. In the shower. In the pool. Name any scenario, and I’ve jerked off to it.’”
Never the less, their hook-up is pretty hot—one of those nice blends of dirty and steamy but without being cheesy.
Told via their dual alternating first person POV, both Ashlyn and Jeff are both likable characters. I especially appreciated that Ashlyn was confident, and she wasn’t insecure about her body.
I kinda wish Jeff would have reveled in showing her off though rather than covering/hiding her. That’s so much more empowering. But all in all, they were a sweet pair.
Now I have to admit, I had some trouble with the epilogue. While it had a “realness” factor to it, for someone with emetophobia like myself it didn’t leave me with feel-good vibes. Truth be told, I would have far preferred more of the beginning of their relationship and less of the later years.
No cheating. No sex scenes w/OP. No OW/OM drama. H&h are both virgins. No rape or sexual abuse. HEA.
