Where Honesty Never Ends.

Greetings everyone! No Labels here! In this episode of Kindle App Random Robin, I take a look at the short read, Sweet Temptations: The Babysitter.
I must say, this is the first short story I’ve encountered that has its’ own book trailer. I wanted to find a way to share it directly on this post but was unable to. However, the 41 second trailer is on the website and on his author page. I must say the music doesn’t fully fit the content within the pages.
On with the story.
The author did a stellar job in his description of events as well as people. I could wholeheartedly relate to being at an office party where you aren’t that particular about the people you work with. He was also pretty detailed about physical characteristics (color of eyes, hair, skin, measurements) along with the type of clothes the characters wore. The pacing was consistent and there were no visible errors in punctuation, grammar, and spelling (or any that would deter from the read). The conflict, particularly between Alice and Scarlet, was believable and timely.
Despite that liveliness, there were a few elements which served as party crashers.
For a story of its brevity, there were way too many characters being presented at the beginning that really had no purpose towards the end. Unless the author is going to revisit some of them in a later installment, then the amount of supplemental characters should be decreased slightly.
Although the heat was tastefully painted, the events leading up to the development was quite predictable.
Things that make you go Hmmm Moment: There’s a fine line between temptation and just plain reckless. Does a guy in this day and age (with the threat of various diseases) still go bareback in someone because she looks innocent or just because she’s on the pill? Unless they have made tremendous advancements with the pill, it still doesn’t protect against STD’s. Furthermore, is pregnancy really a worst predicament than a disease to the married man, more so than the single man?
This aspect was hinted at in this particular write, and it just got me to thinking.
Let me get back on track.
Verdict: Overall, I give Sweet Temptations: The Babysitter a 7.5 out of 10 TRB Stars. This is a very descriptive write, and it has a bit of spice without being in your face, hardcore porn. I can definitely see this for one just starting out in reading erotica. For me, I prefer my writes a little more original in context and characters.
