American Darlings by Gail Bridges #bookreview #giveaway

by Gail Bridges

Genre: Erotica

This book contains explicit content not intended for people under 18 years of age.

Leah Collins is a sexual gymnast, a brilliant athlete poised to compete in the Mexico City Olympic Games of 2112. She takes pride in her advanced skills in the sexual arts, but performing Courtesan’s Treat and Raging Volcano in front of thousands of cheering fans is no easy task, especially when sexual malfunctions threaten.

At her side, a pillar of strength and compassion, is her best friend, Benson White. He is the one who scrapes her from the ground when her self-destructive tendencies surface. Benson is a talented sexual gymnast in his own right, the other half of America’s Darlings.

They hope for a gold medal. What neither of them expects is to fall in love.

My review:

Imagine a time when puritanical thinking towards sex doesn’t exist. STDs are non-existent and birth control is 100% effective. Leah Collins is living in that time and on pressure from her mother has been training to be in the Olympics since she was young. She is good at what she does, has a partner she trusts and pretty much her only downfall is been a little naive. She can be emotional, which in the sexual Olympics isn’t always a good thing. One of my favorite things about this book is just how much Gail left to your own imagination. There isn’t too many in depth details given. You feel attached to the characters and want them to succeed. The feats are fantastic, interludes are worthy of the Olympics and the end ends exactly how it should. If erotica is your thing, even if it’s not, the story will grab you. It’s a classic romance story – with a twist.

Meet the author:

I have three grown children. I live in Seattle, Washington with my husband and our five cats.

In the past I have worked in a variety of different artistic media. I have a BFA in painting from the University of Washington, and for over fifteen years I made award-winning Fine Art Jewelry (silver and handmade ceramics) and sold my work at local and regional Fine Art and Craft shows. My business, Vivid Arts, flourished – but always, I felt driven to write. Two years ago, no longer able to deny the writing muse, I took an open-ended sabbatical from my art shows. Since then, I’ve written two novels and a number of published and unpublished short stories.
