Overview


Mandy is content with her job as a librarian, her longtime boyfriend, Martin, and the lovely home they share. So what if their sex life is vanilla? She's not the wild type anyway.

But when she wakes up one morning—unsatisfied—from an erotic dream starring her favorite movie star, Mandy starts to crave sexual adventure in real life. Too bad Martin won't oblige, because it's not Tuesday or Friday. Then Mandy finds out what Martin's been doing the other days of the week—or rather, who. And suddenly she needs to prove to herself that she's not boring in bed.

Fortunately, there is no shortage of smoking-hot men willing to help her on her sensual quest: a nameless library patron who could be Brad Pitt's twin, a coworker she suddenly sees in a different light, and the neighbor who usually rubs her the wrong way wants to show her he can rub her the oh-so-right way, too! Lucky for Mandy, her lovers are more than willing to share...

Meet the Author

Shelley Aikens is a writer and librarian living in Vancouver. She grew up on a farm and is relentlessly torn between living a quiet life as a librarian and following her adventurous spirit around the world. She has visited libraries in Nepal, New Zealand, Belgium, Scotland and Anguilla, but so far, none has been quite as interesting as the one in this story.


Shelley loves road trips, Bollywood movies, secondhand stores and long hikes to secluded lakes. In her spare time, she makes quilts for her cats to snooze on and tries to teach her dog circus tricks. She also spends a good portion of her time reading books on the beach and dreaming up steamy scenes for her next erotic novel.

Read an Excerpt

Brad's tongue on my nipple was soft, pulling it up to an aching peak inside his beautiful mouth, his hand travelling down my body, tempting me with its slow, circling progress. I arched my hips toward him, trying to hurry his fingers towards my hungry, wet cunt, but still his fingers stayed teasingly out of reach. I moaned in frustration, surprised when I heard an echoing moan coming from the next room. Brad seemed oblivious to the sound, his hand and mouth continuing to travel across my body, his sparkling blue eyes smiling as my frustration mounted.

Gradually, the distant echo became clearer—it sounded like someone was in the next room, singing badly out of key. As the singing got louder, Brad's touch started to lighten, to fade away, as though he was nothing more than a ghost. And then suddenly he was gone, and the singing was now even louder than ever.

I opened my eyes with a groan of understanding—it had been nothing more than a dream and, sadly, Brad Pitt wasn't really here in my bed seducing me. The only man around was my boyfriend, Martin, who was in the bathroom belting out a Rolling Stones song: “I can't get noooo satisfaction…”

I sighed as the truth of the words struck me. I could feel how turned on I was, how frustrated. Nothing like almost having sex with Brad Pitt first thing in the morning to get a girl hot and bothered, I thought. I reached down to satisfy the ache, but I knew that I needed more than just an orgasm. I needed to be fucked as hard as possible, as soon as possible.

But I knew that it would be a long shot to get Martin interested in sex right now. After all, it wasn't Friday or Tuesday evening, or Sunday afternoon, which were his preferred times for sex. But then again, what man would ever turn down sex?

I could hear the shower running and knew that I had a few minutes, so I ran down to the guest bathroom, quickly brushed my teeth and hair, and assessed my naked body in the mirror. Not bad, I thought; most guys wouldn't turn me away. Thin but not too thin, curvy but not too curvy, average height, strong and fit, with breasts that were large but not too large, an ass that wasn't too lumpy, and my favorite asset of all—my long, shapely Rockettes legs, my one and only vanity.

I decided that I looked pretty good for first thing in the morning, my long, brown hair falling halfway down my back, a bit frizzy but free of tangles now, my lightly-freckled face and blue eyes looking unusually fresh and awake after a not-quite-sufficient sleep last night and a somewhat restless awakening. I guess making out with Brad Pitt does a body good.

Confident I was working with the best I had, I went back to the master bathroom, where Martin was just stepping out of the shower. He smiled at me, his sparkling-white, expensively-capped teeth flashing. “Good morning, darling!” he chimed, as usual at his perky best first thing in the morning.

I smiled in return, giving him a lingering kiss on the lips. “Good morning, honey. Thanks for the serenade.”

    Very Disappointing

    I like a little kink as well as the next person but this book was ridiculous. The story plot was illogical (even for a work of fiction) and there was no real relationship amongst any of the characters. The female character was portrayed as some psycho nymphomaniac that couldn't keep her knickers up for 10 minutes.

    Horrible - Don't waste your time or money.

    Hot Read

    Mandy is content with her life...but bored. After a hot dream featuring one of her favorite stars, Mandy tries to seduce her boyfriend Martin, but since it isn't Tuesday or Friday, he stalls. Then Mandy comes home early from her job as a librarian, and catches Martin just as his 'other woman' is leaving. Mandy tosses him out, along with the mattress that he cheated on, and questions her own sexuality, wondering why she wasn't enough.

    An encounter with a mystery stranger makes her feel alive and attractive so she embarks on a series of sexcapades, from sex on the job with Sean, a co-worker at the library, to sex in the park with the mysterious stranger, and finally, with her new roommate, James. She begins to realize she is out of control, but can't seem to stop. When she realizes she has strong feelings for James, she tries to cut back her activities. Can she settle down and find happiness with one man? Can Mandy find a way to live her fantasies with James?

    Shelley Aikens has written a hot and sex filled story of betrayal and discovery. The action is set off by Martin's betrayal of Mandy, and leads Mandy to experiment with her sexuality in many ways. From her workplace, to the park, and several other places, she proves to herself that she is still attractive, but begins to doubt what she's doing is what she truly needs.

    Mandy is an interesting character. She begins as a disappointed and slightly bored woman and after Martin's betrayal, she seems to go just a bit wild. She feels lacking, and thinks the only way to feel better is to fulfill all of her fantasies. She uses less than good judgement, especially in her encounters with the 'mysterious stranger' first in the library, then later in the park. She finally gets her act together when she realizes what she really wants.

    The men in Mandy's life are all attractive, but each has a different way to treat her. Sean starts off shy, but quickly becomes dominating and demanding. The mysterious stranger floats in and out almost like a dream. James starts as a neighbor who offers a room to Mandy in exchange for dog sitting, but it is this man who helps Mandy come to terms with what she really wants.

    This is a very hot book, filled with as many fantasies as the author could pack in here. I felt a bit overwhelmed at times by all that was going on. I was a bit uncomfortable in a couple of spots, but I did enjoy the happy ever after that Mandy finally found. This story is definitely not for the faint of heart, and the heat is high enough to singe your fingertips.

    DO NOT RECOMMEND! - NO STORY OR CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT

    I liked the outline of the book but when I started to read it had no story. The characters were underdeveloped and so was the story. Mandy had no impulse control as far as if something was waved or rubbed against her she was ready. I forced myself to finish the book thinking it would get better but it did not. I would not recommend this book if you want a story to go along with all the sex. If you are looking for no story and characters are that are cardboard and a lot of sex then this great. Maybe her writing will get better after a couple more books.
