Four stories of eroticism, strength, experimentation, and ultimate salvation.

Cursed after death to live in grey nothingness until they atone for their sins, four spirits have spent centuries doing good for others. Finally they stumble upon the true key to their salvation – because they hurt women in their lives, they'll only find release by now helping women to become all they should be.

One by one, the spirits meet a woman and as each sexual delight unfurls, the grey nothingness disappears a little more. As the women find their happily ever after, they grant the spirits a chance at peace for eternity.

Follow the journey of four remarkable women – Luisa, Anna, Cara, and Jan – and the four spirits that set them on a new path to sexual freedom and boundless pleasure.

Find this review and more at Lusty Penguin Reviews! Release is a thoroughly entertaining collection of interconnected short stories by Elizabeth Dunk. Four spirits have spent centuries helping others to atone for the sins committed during their lifetimes. In order to finally be freed, the spirits discover that they need to help women discover and explore their hidden sexual desires and, in turn, become the women they are truly meant to be. “Believing,” the first story, centers around Luisa who is down to the last two things on her freedom list: 1) buy a house, 2) find a lover and have great sex. The spirit of the house that Luisa bought looks an awful lot like her first boyfriend, Paul. The spirit helps Luisa realize that she is a passionate woman who deserves to be happy and desired. The tricky spirit sets Luisa up to be reunited with Paul and when they meet again, the sparks fly. Their bedroom play is spontaneous, spicy, and fun. In, “Love and Let Go,” Anna, a widow, has all but forgotten to take care of herself while raising her two children and working. While on vacation, Anna meets up with a spirit of the beach who awakens her sexual desires. Anna grasps that she wants to be the one in charge in the bedroom, something her late husband denied her. Knowing what she really wants, Anna decides to go after the man she always desired and loved, Rik, her best friend since high school. Rik is perfectly happy to let Anna be in charge in the bedroom. Anna and Rik’s bedroom play, with light BDSM elements, is downright steamy. “Truth in Action” tells the story of Cara, who sets out to prove to her ex-boyfriend that she isn’t fat or boring in bed. The spirit of the field wastes no time proving to Cara that she is none of the things she thinks she is. When Cara lets go of her hang-ups, she shares with the spirit of her fantasy of being with a man and a woman. Lucky for Cara, the spirit knows the perfect woman to add to the equation and make Cara’s fantasy a scorching hot reality. The tables get turned in “Forgiven and Freed” because the spirit of the office needs help with his reluctance to have sex. Jan has heard stories about the spirit of the office and is surprised when he appears to her. But, it doesn’t take Jan long to figure out that she is the one that needs to help the spirit. Through poignant and heartfelt conversations, Jan helps the spirit put into context what happened to him as a teenager and how it affects his actions as an adult. The sexual tension between Jan and the spirit sizzles and when they finally succumb to desire, their bedroom play is hot, hot, hot. I really enjoyed all of the stories in this collection. It was delightful to see all of these women come into their own with the help of their spirits. Dunk has a graceful writing style and is a wonderful storyteller. I’m definitely looking forward to reading more from her in the future. If you are looking for a fun, entertaining, and spicy read, Release should be in your to–be-read pile. I received an eBook copy of the book for the purpose of an honest review. I was not compensated for this review, and all conclusions are my own responsibility.
