Review: Sodom and Detroit by Ann Mayburn

Title: Sodom and Detroit
Author: Ann Mayburn 
Genre: Erotica-Fantasy, m/m, f/f, m/f/m, BDSM
Publisher: Loose ID 
Number of Pages: E Book

Workaholic Maeve Burgundy avoids any relationship where she might fall in love. She's forced by her best friend to take a vacation she won to the exotic Sodom Resort. They specialize in turning any erotic fantasy into reality. Virtual Reality. What Maeve doesn't know is that Angel, the owner of the Resort and her old college boyfriend, has rigged the contest in an effort to reconnect with Maeve. He wants to persuade her to become part of a committed ménage à trois with his best friend and lover, Luke. The three embark upon a sexual adventure that takes them from the sultry pleasures of a sheik's harem, to the forced seduction of a royal lady by two highwaymen, and the fun of having a handsome biker hanging chained from the ceiling-just begging for a flogging. During each fantasy Maeve falls a little more in love with the men she thinks she knows, and begins to trust them with her heart.
Luke warns Angel that they may lose Maeve because of his deception, but Angel will take any chance to win Maeve back and convince her how good a loving menage a trois can be.Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable: anal play/intercourse, menage (m/m/f, m/f/m), same-sex interaction/sexual practices (m/m, f/f), voyeurism. (amazon)

Ok, I know the cover isn't that great,but appearances can be deceiving because this was one heck of a novella. All  I can say is Wowzers!  This was one smokin' hot book. I had it read in one sitting and I think my kindle might have been smoldering a bit when I finished reading it.  Sodom and Detroit is one of my favorite eroticas of the year. It had a little bit of everything: m/f, m/m, m/f/m and f/f) It's amazing that it all came together and worked so well, but it did.

I found myself really liking the relationship between Luke and Angel. They are completely honest with each other, and I love how Luke tells Angel he's a full for trying to use deception to win Maeve back. I have to say I never knew virtual reality could be so much fun! I loved seeing Maeve let loose in the virtual setting, and then seeing her gain confidence out of the virtual setting because of her actions in there. (if that makes sense.)

This was a novella, and I have to say that ended much too quickly for me. It made me want a full length book with Angel, Luke and Maeve-if only so I can see more of them together in their everyday lives. I know this is a review is short, but it's hard to say more without giving everything away. I am so glad that I bought this on a whim and can't wait to read her backlist.
