Erotic horror with a culinary twist? Is it possible to do well? Apparently so because Grivante Press just pulled it off. When I was approached to review this book I was immediately intrigued because the theme of this collection is pretty rare. I was craving something new and unique to read and I wanted to see how well this could be done. If not done right, the theme could make the collection a gaudy mess.
Grivante Press did not disappoint, however, and it shows that they really took the time to select stories that would shine. They also have some really creative editor floating around up there because the titles to the chapters are smart and cheeky! “A Woman’s Corn” was pretty clever! I really appreciated the length of the stories, too. It would be easy enough to take the few minutes to read a short story every day over about twenty days.
Most of all, I found Deven Rose’s Succubus’s Parting Gift, Breakfast in Bed to be the most twisted and fun to read. It’s a story about acting when you think it doesn’t matter and it really does. When the main character is dreaming they do something they normally wouldn’t do in real life and wake up to find that the dream won’t be ending–ever.
Sex, food, violence, and stories to get your heart beating! If you’re looking for something different, this might be for you, though I know that it might not be everyone’s cup of tea.
