Great stories

May 8, 2010

I’ve had a chance to read some of the stories in the Necking anthology.  There is a lot of very entertaining stuff here.  Dar Mavison and the always admirable Heidi Cullinan explore variations on the theme of committed lovers who invite a third man into the bedroom.  In Mavison’s Beautiful Friend, the lovers are in an open relationship while in Cullinan’s Down the Middle, the couple is on the verge of breaking up.  The entry of the third man into these relationships not only provides some very hot scenes, but it leads to changes in some of the very likeable characters.  The guys in Heidi Champa’s Breaking the Habit come up with some intriguing incentives to stop smoking.   And, darn it, J L Merrow manages to make a visit to the dentist downright sexy in the suggestively titled Getting a Filling.  I’m looking forward to reading the other stories.
