For years Samantha hid her fantasies. As a young adolescent, she wrote a story in which the heroines get tied up by the bad guys. She showed it to a friend, who deemed it “yucky”, and Samantha never shared her deepest desires again. She would be the good girl.
And the good girl she became. Now in graduate school, she is focused on her studies. That is, until Mr. Hunk walks into the classroom and sits next to her. She and classmate, Peter, develop a friendship, yet whenever she is near him, Samantha feels that dark, sensuous side clamoring to get out.
One night, over pizza and textbooks, Peter asks her out. She is surprised and further shocked when he promises her that she will submit to him. Will he unlock those fantasies and desires she locked away so long ago? Will he accept her even if she isn’t the good girl?
In Learning Curve, a Quickie from Ellora’s Cave, Diane Hunter delves into the world of fetish and fantasy. She does this will great skill, painting sensual, tantalizing scenes throughout. She did a wonderful job with characters and tension in the sparse 43 pages. The only thing I had trouble with was the dialogue. What was being said was very sexy, but how it was said was distracting. The speech was awfully stilted with no contractions. For the sexy, kinky situations the two characters were in, it just didn’t seem to fit. Otherwise, I enjoyed this Quickie very much.
