KARR: Unleashed Speaks on Kona and Simmer Sweet


 Synful Desire


Greetings everyone!  No Labels here.  Today is going to be a double feature of sorts, as I share my thoughts on Kona (the microshort) and Simmer Sweet (short story).


Kona (micro short story)

The key to a good micro short is being able to say a lot with few words.  This mental tease comes in at about six hundred words.

The thing I liked the most about this microshort is you are left wondering who is the person having the daydream. On the first read, it seemed as if it was the gentleman enjoying his Kona coffee. Yet, when I read it again, I had to second guess myself–could it really be the female instead?


Verdict: 9.5 out of 10 TRB Stars

Those little twists (the simple “ah-ha”) makes Synful Desire a writer to watch. I hope that she makes the curves a staple in any and all future writings.

Now on to Simmer Sweet:


Simmer Sweet (a short story)

Blurb: It is said confession is good for the soul. Does it still ring true when circumstances are complicated?
Kesha has finally come clean. She has let Teresa know about her feelings. The only drawback is Teresa’s engagement to Chris. Teresa is forced to make a choice between Chris and Kesha. The fallout will be nothing less than a fire of simmer sweet.

Unleashed Speaks

Disclaimer: This work does have instances of same sex intimacy. May not be for everyone but if this doesn’t bother you, proceed on.

Side Note:  Does this author have a thing for lips?  This is the second image of cover art that features them.  Not that it’s bad–just an observation.

There are quite a few things that have caught my attention as it pertains to this particular writer. She skews very contemporary and abstract when it comes to cover art. It really allows the reader’s imagination to go wild in relation to the characters and events inside.

The title seemed odd at first but once I read the contents, it made sense. I checked out the chapter snippet on her blog before proceeding.

This deals with more than a decision of a best friend revealing her crush. It also gives snapshots into the other person’s feelings as well as how a domino effect was in place. The erotic undertones were hot and tender but it was the way the whole story was put together that made it very satisfying.


Verdict: 10 out of 10 Stars.

Simmer Sweet is one of those tales that could possibly be extended to talk more about what happened with Teresa, Kesha, and Chris afterwards. Yet this ending also works because it provides no pressure: just lingering and a simple “what if.”  This is a great read for those who like erotica but are more invested in story line that just wham-bam, thank-you-ma’am sex.

Thank you for checking out the Kindle (or in this case, Smashwords) App Random Robin.  Feel free to like, share, and subscribe.  Have a terrific day!
