Erotica author Kate McMannis has crippling writer’s block and a deadline in less than two months. When a beautiful woman named Erato appears at her house and claims to be her muse, Kate isn’t certain whether Erato is mentally ill or truly her supernatural savior. Either way, when the incredible sex Erato offers leads to genuine inspiration, Kate isn’t inclined to refuse her unusual brand of help.

When a little fantasy fulfillment with Erato inadvertently leads her to the shy and gorgeous Olive Johnson, unexpected feelings threaten to derail Kate’s motivation once again. Erato is just as determined to keep her writing on track as Kate is to explore her very real attraction to Olive—which leads to friction that threatens not only Kate’s ability to meet her deadline, but also her burgeoning romance with Olive.

Caught between a contractual obligation and her heart, is there any way for Kate to have it all?

This is the story of Kate McMannis and how she deals with a big case of writer’s block with the help of Erato her personal muse and Olive the additional part for all the threesomes scenes and actual love interest in this story. What else can I say about this story?

I mean this book is 95% porn and 5% story with like 2% character development in that same story porcentage but I have to give props to the author for always making a point of including consent and her insistent effort to portray somewhat very realistic sexual experiences, it also somewhat addresses an abusive relationship (not in the physical sense but some aspects of it) and it made me uncomfortable of the lack of acknowledgment it got so weird. Still the whole book is an ode to sex and consent and how amazing consent sounds as a form of foreplay so, YAY FOR AWESOME CONSENSUAL EXPLICIT SEX!

Stars: 2.5 but if I have to give a round number it’d be 3 because I really like my porn with a plot and if it has angst and drama is a bonus, this isn’t plot driven porn so it’s like fanservice
