Overview

Genre: LGBT; Science Fiction

Skin to skin contact is illegal. Sex? A felony. Insulated suits and gloves keep people from even the most platonic touches. Citizens line up in droves at simhouses for their rationed, prescribed orgasms in virtual reality machines.

Keith Borden has worked in a simhouse for years, and he's never been tempted to break the strict no-contact laws...until Aiden Maxwell comes along. The attractive and dangerously flirtatious patient invites him into the seedy underground where people engage in real, wireless sex. Though Keith stands to lose his career and his freedom, he's curious and Aiden is irresistible.

From the moment he sets foot in the wireless lounge, Keith is in a world of flesh and fantasy. He's hooked. On the sex, on the atmosphere, and most of all, on Aiden.

Years of keeping everyone in his world at arm's length have left Keith craving a human touch, and Aiden offers all the contact--scorching sex, gentle affection, and everything in between--Keith can handle. That is, until an unexpected act of betrayal throws Keith's world into chaos, and he finds himself more alone than he ever imagined possible...

Meet the Author

L.A. Witt is an author of gay erotic romances, and has recently been exiled from Okinawa, Japan, to Omaha, Nebraska. She resides there with her husband, a telekinetic goldfish, and two incredibly spoiled cats. It’s unclear if the exile was the result of the mostly classified “Aquarium Incident”, or if she’s actually being hidden, for her protection, from the Polynesian Mafia and her arch nemesis, erotic romance author Lauren Gallagher. Should you encounter Lauren, don’t tell her L.A. is in Omaha. This bio will self-destruct in 17 seconds.

    Imagine a world where touch is forbidden. Sex is a felony and people must line up at simhouses to get their orgasms. This is the world that Keith Borden lives in. He works at a simhouse, delivering personal pleasure to the citizens through virtual reality machines. He meets Aiden Maxwell, a bad boy who knows what it feels like to have wireless sex.

    He invites Keith to come with him to one of these secret and highly dangerous underground to have wireless sex. For Keith, it’s a great gamble. Just talking about it can make him lose his job and land himself in jail. But Aiden is determined to show Keith that there was once a time where sex and touch were necessary. It’s not unhygienic or infectious as the government now claims it to be, but tempting and passionate.

    The science fiction dystopian world that Witt had created in this story is highly imaginative and well-done. I was never confused about any of the new rules or felt that the details or explanations were too sparse. Witt has always had a good mind with creating alternate worlds. I absolutely believe that she can take this standalone and expand it further into a series.

    Aiden was delicious. He was a bit of a bad boy, tempting Keith like that. A lot of the allure of this book stems from the taste of the forbidden and the anxiety that comes with getting caught. It made everything they did seem more tempting. Keith essentially found a drug with wireless sex and couldn’t find himself stopping after that first exposure. At the same time, he is having an internal battle within himself as he contemplates what is good and what is bad.

    I would definitely recommend this to readers who are found of dystopian M/M. Witt’s stellar worldbuilding and scorching hot sex scenes make WIRELESS a book that should not be missed!

    There are so many different thoughts and ideas

    There are so many different thoughts and ideas that people have when it comes to the future. Shoot, when I was younger I would have been willing to bet anything that we would have been in flying cars come the year 2000, (you can imagine my disappointment when it didn’t happen… it’s still a touchy subject so don’t ask me about it!) Now some of the ideas out there are completely off the wall no way possible that could happen, and then some ideas actually do seem like they could happen (bring on the flying cars!)

    One thing that I did completely enjoy about this book is how the situations in this book, I could see actually happening at some point. What better way to “cure” all diseases than making people not be allowed to touch each other? To me, that seems completely possible to happen.

    We are introduced to Keith and Aiden in this story. Keith is a do-gooder who works at the simhouse, while Aiden is the wild card in the mix. Things go way beyond the “doctor” and “patient” in their relationship when Aiden introduces Keith to the joys of Wireless sex. The Wireless sex parties? Are hot in case you were wondering! All the flesh and touching that was happening was amazing to read about.

    I completely enjoyed both of the main characters and I have a hard time picking which one is my favorite! They each had parts that I completely enjoyed, the fact that Keith actually went through the pain of trying to decide what he wanted to do. Aiden didn’t force him in anyway, he just let whatever was going to happen, happen.

    All in all, I completely enjoyed this book and trust me when I say, I hope this never happens in real life!
