Where Honesty Never Ends.
Derailed Endurance (part of the Continuous Drips anthology)
Genre: Romance/Light Erotica
Note: Although there are nine short stories in the Continuous Drips anthology, I will not be covering Misfortune, Afro Shock or Útil but will only focus on the other six works in the collection one at a time. This is part of a challenge in which each author of this anthology would give their honest assessment on the others contributions in the collection (and it would be a bit biased if I reviewed my own works on here). None of the authors have seen the others’ works prior to their compilation and live presentation.
Greetings! Unleashed here. In the next installment of Kindle App Random Robin, I continue my reading of the short story anthology “Continuous Drips” and explore Derailed Endurance by Synful Desire.
Derailed Endurance explores the six month courtship between Korey and this young female named Cadence. It started off as friendly competition between the two at the local community center but over time blossomed into something more. The story goes back and forth between present day (a trip at the jewelry store) and the relationship’s growth.
The story goes from sweet to suggestive as Korey and Cadence become closer. Cadence displays her true aggression which is a turn on for Korey. He feels a connection so strong that a trip to the jewelry store seems the logical step no matter what the timetable.
I do like the banter between Korey and Cadence. It felt very real and indicative of the tender connection between the two. I also like the competition between the two and their shared love for swimming.
Unleashed Verdict: 8 out of 10 Stars
The only drawback for me is that towards the end, the story felt rushed and was a bit of a cliffhanger. However, by the author indicated this as a “staccato edition”, perhaps it’s a hint that a more extended version will be available later.
