Freebie Fiction Friday - Putting the TG in TGIF!

Well, if it's Friday, then it must be time to bend our way into the weekend with Freebie Fiction Friday.

Every Friday I search through the weekend's free titles on Amazon, looking for those that might be of interest to readers, fans, and lovers of bending gender and sexuality. Even if you don't have a Kindle, you can still download the titles through one of Amazon's free reading applications, and covert it (if need be) with Calibre. I can tell you I do most of my reading on my tablet, using Kindle for PC, and it works beautifully.

Please do be sure to check the price before downloading anything, though, as most freebies are limited time offers, and some are specific to certain regions.

                                                          

 Enjoy!

LGBT Erotic Fairy Tales by Stephen T. Grey (#trans #bisexual #erotica)

If, like mine, your imagination has a tendency to wander into perverse places, then you likely have already thought about an adult season of Once Upon a Time. Seriously, contemporary fairy tale romance with gorgeous people? It is only a wink-and-a-nod away from exploring its serious erotic potential. Well, unless there is already an adult parody version out there, Stephen T. Grey's new line of LGBT Erotic Fairy Tales will do just fine.

I believe the series sits at 9 stories currently (although it may very well be 10 by the time you read this), but I want to focus on the 'core' stories that overlap with one another.

Goldilocks and the Three Biker Bears introduces us to Goldie (Goldilocks), a 19-year-old transsexual who, after a night of drinking, stumbles into a strange house in a bad part of town. As you might expect, there are 3 bowls of porridge to taste, 3 big armchairs to sleep in, and 3 big bikers known as The Three Bears. Needless to say, young Goldilocks awake to a whole lot of sex, with a happily ever after each time.

In Snow White and the Seven Well Hung Dwarfs we are introduced to Gisele (Snow White), an 18-year-old transsexual whose evil step-mother really is a witch, and who has poisoned her father against her. On her own and needing money for her hormones, she stops at Seven Dwarfs Pawn Shop where she meets Doc, with whom she makes an instant connection. By the end of the night, she has fallen in love with all seven dwarfs, falling into a romantic fairy tale.

It is in Snow White and Goldilocks Have Fun where the two fairy tale transsexuals meet for the first time - while on a weekend vacation to Vegas. There is some natural rivalry there, with Snow White in particular reluctant to mix with the trashy party goer, but a little gambling, a great dinner, and far too many drinks result in a orgy of magical proportions.

Sleeping Beauty Was Once a Boy introduces us to another fairy tale character, Patricia (Sleeping Beauty), an 18-year-old transsexual whose evil step-mother is suspected of having tried to kill her with a poison apple. Like Snow White, she sets out on her own, but after a short career selling herself on the streets, she ends up a top model - and the most beautiful girl in the world. When her step-mother interferes once again, only the kiss of Doctor Andrews (Prince Charming) is able to wake her from her coma . . . with erotic results.

We get another crossover in Snow White and Sleeping Beauty Get Trashed At Home, a story that not only brings the two fairy tale victims together, but which reveals that their evil step-mothers are lesbian lovers who share an evil plan. This one is a bit dark, with a moment of sadness for beautiful young Sleeping Beauty, but the Seven Dwarfs have more than enough room in their hearts (and their beds) for two transsexual wives. These last two stories, together, are my favorites of everything Stephen has written to date.

These 5 stories put a clever contemporary spin on the original tales, sexing them up, and offering a heady mix of romance and erotica. They are all happily-ever-after tales, and Stephen tells them in a way that feels like a familiar, vintage fairy tale. As narrator, he indirectly addresses the reader, with the occasional "let me tell you" or "did I forget to mention" thrown in to make it cozy. The backstory of the Seven Dwarfs is fantastic, the rivalry between Goldilocks and Snow White is a lot of fun, and the whole story of Sleeping Beauty is just perfect.

These LGBT Erotic Fairy Tales are quite different from Stephen's other work in terms of theme and storytelling style, but they maintain his positive approach to transgender expression and sexuality. These are fun reads that you only wish you could have read back in high school!

Stephen Grey has been a BDSM Dominant for almost two decades now. He has also only had relationships with transgendered females for the past 20 years. Consequently most of his stories are BDSM related stories centering on a transsexual lady.

Silken by Isobel Starling (#gay #bdsm #crossdressing)

Silken is a book I have been sitting on for far too long. In fact, if I did not enjoy it, I would suggest that I need to be punished. Instead, all I can do is beg Isobel Starling's forgiveness as I happily make amends, sharing what a delight this was to read!

Until a knee accident ended his career, Matthew Fisher was an accomplished ballet star. Now, with his career seemingly over, he has taken a job as a real estate agent, inspecting the rental homes of rich and famous clients, and ensuring everything is in order for their return. That is his day job. While in those homes, he takes advantage of the sumptuous backdrop to take lingerie photos for his Tumblr blog (Silken), along with rather more taboo photos and videos for his online Master. That is his passion.

Where the two collide is when he just happens to be assigned the rental property belonging to the Master he has never met, a man who watches every moment of Siken's performance on high-def security cameras, and decides it is time to finally meet.

There was so much to love about this, beginning with Matthew/Silken himself. Here we have a gay man with a lingerie fetish. He is not overly effeminate, and he has no desire to wear cosmetics or do his hair - for him, it is all about the look and feel of expensive lingerie, and Starling writes in such a way that we experience the thrill through him. He is an entirely likeable young man for whom we have both appreciation and sympathy, so that when the secret is revealed and his Master arrives, we so desperately want them to find their happily ever after.

As for the BDSM aspect, it was wonderfully done, intensely erotic, and yet sincere and tasteful at the same time. It is a relationship that works on both a physical and a psychological level, allowing a simple collar to be more exquisite than the finest piece of lingerie, and the passionate bite of a lip more pleasurable than consummating their passion with penetration. Even when Silken is dressed, with only the feel of silk and satin between them, we never forget that this is the story of one man surrendering to the blissful dominance of another.

Silken is that rare erotic romance that crosses boundaries of both gender and sexuality, appealing to fans of both CD and M/M fiction, without alienating either. I absolutely adored it, and look forward to reading more of Isobel's work.

If, that is, she can forgive me for being so tardy in reviewing. :)

Isobel’s novel "As You Wish" (Shatterproof Bond #1) is an Amazon Best Seller on Amazon.com and Amazon France. Nine novels into her writing career Isobel has just released The Shatterproof Bond box set which contains all three novels in the series, and the first book in the M/M Romantic Comedy mystery series "Dick and the Sidekick" -"Detective Fox and the Christmas Caper"

Caged by his Ebony Girlfriend by Brooke Dubois (#femdom #chastity #pegging)

The Caged by his Ebony Girlfriend trilogy is an interesting read for several reasons. First, it is a work of interracial erotica, but one featuring a black woman and a white man. Second, it is story about female domination and chastity, but one featuring a vanilla couple who have never expressed any dominant or submissive desires. Finally, and this is perhaps what struck me the most, its focus is predominantly on a woman's pleasure - yes, male chastity is at the heart of it, but the story is less about Josh's frustration and more about Erika's delight.

Brooke Dubois opens the trilogy with Enforced Male Chastity, where Josh discovers that his birthday present to Erika is to be two weeks. He, of course, does not even last the first hour without begging for release. There is some nice tease-and-denial to this chapter, but the real highlight is how he is forced to orally please his budding new Mistress time and time again.

As the story continues in Caged Lust, Erika has become rather addicted to the feeling of power she now holds, becoming aroused by Josh's desperation to please her. There is some nice spanking here, but this chapter's highlight is the way in which he comes to not just want, not just desire, but honestly beg to be pegged by Erika's massive black strap-on.

It all comes to a head, no pun intended, in Caged for Her. There is a bit of everything from the first two chapters here - oral pleasure, spankings, and pegging - but it is all at a higher level of intensity, with a deeper level of dominance and submission attached. From vanilla novices playing a game at the start, Josh and Erika become open about their fetishes, attending an exclusive BDSM play party where they become an exhibitionist centrepiece.

Caged by his Ebony Girlfriend is what I would call sexy, sex-positive, and female-centric. Like I said, it is a story about male chastity, but its focus is on how that denial benefits their love life, at which Erika is rightly the center.

Mascara & Bandages by Brandon Witt (#gay #drag #romance)

Oh my, but how I loved this! The pivotal homophobic assault aside (and I will get to that in a moment), Mascara & Bandages was just so lovely . . . so sweet . . . and so adorably sexy. What did I love about it so much, you ask? Well, how about a drag queen mermaid, who owns a bookstore, and who is so totally a bottom? It is like Brandon Witt peered into my heart and gave me everything I could want in a gay romance.

Zachary Cooper is a shy, nervous young man who only truly comes alive when he's on stage, strutting himself as Ariel Merman. One night, after a show, all the pain and darkness of his life comes crashing down on him, reminding him he is "Just a skinny, femme man, wearing makeup and a dress." It is on his walk home that he is attacked, with the assault landing him in the hospital . . . where he meets the stunningly handsome Dr. Teegan Chau.

That assault continues to haunt both Zachary and Teegan throughout the story, but every cloud has a silver lining, and not only did it bring them together, but it reminds them of who matters most in their lives, whether those families are chosen or biological. On that note, they are surrounded by a wonderful cast of characters, who help make the story come alive, but it is the budding romance between these two shy, tentative young men that is so wonderful to explore. Witt takes things slowly, giving us awkward exchanges of hints and innuendo, a lovely first date, the first tentative stirrings of intimacy, and some wonderfully suggestive moments of eroticism.

Mascara & Bandages has its moments of darkness. It is a realistic story that explores the challenges of coming out and being gay, but it is also one in which true love emerges triumphant. I loved these boys and would be delighted to encounter them again.

Brandon Witt's outlook on life is greatly impacted by his first eighteen years of growing up gay in a small town in the Ozarks, as well as fifteen years as a counselor and special education teacher for students with severe emotional disabilities. Add to that his obsession with corgis and mermaids, then factor in an unhealthy love affair with cheeseburgers, and you realize that with all those issues, he's got plenty to write about....
