|Short Story eVersion|
I received Out to Sea as a free download. Below is my honest review of Out to Sea by Laina Charleston.
I thought that Out to Sea was a really quick read. It's an okay short story for the most part. Married couple Ryan and Amy take a Caribbean cruise. They've been married for 12 years. They are still very much in love and still have a very steamy sex life. They meet Seth and Leah on their cruise and end up have sex with each others partners during the course of their cruise.
The sex is hot and very steamy if you like these types of sex scenes... I thought the way the sex scenes were described in Out to Seas were not all that sensual or sexy to me. There was also more sex than story for my tastes... Not that I don't like reading sex scenes, but there has to be a balance of both a well written story and great sex scenes mixed into the story.
I also have a difficult time with couples having sex with people they barely know. Yay, I know it happens all the time... One night stands that is... But characters not using condoms in this day in age with STIs raises red flags big time for me. Having sex with a person on a whim without a condom is very unwise... But, I guess erotica novels/stories are pure fantasy and just that... And, if I think of erotica as pure fantasy, then Out to Sea is perfectly fine.
So, if swinging couples are what turns you on as a reader, then Out to Sea may be the short story for you. After all, who hasn't fantasized about having sex with another couple?
I'm giving Out to Sea by Laina Charleston a rating of 5 stars out of 10 stars.
Until my next post, happy reading!
