Excerpt 72

“Soon, sweetie, I promise,” he soothed. She moaned softly as he licked her ear, dropped soft warm kisses across her shoulder blades, he moved down her back, a wet tongue and hot mouth traced and kissed each vertebrae, making a slow and steady progress down her spine. It was a torturous progression that boiled the blood in Eden’s veins as she waited in bated anticipation. Breath stilled in her lungs, eyes widening when he drew apart her butt cheeks and ran his tongue down the wet crevice, from clit to the puckered rosebud of her hole and back again. It was undoubtedly one of the most erotic things he’d ever done to her body, and Eden didn’t know how to breathe properly. She gripped the sheets beneath her hands and bit down hard on her bottom lip to keep from screaming.

It was like a shot of adrenaline straight into her vein. It was blood vessels dilating, her heart galloping uncontrollably in her chest, it was gasping for breath when the air she drew in wasn’t enough. He owned her body, ate it like sun ripened peaches and drank the flowing juices of her weeping womanhood with his rapacious tongue. There were fingers there, slipping between the folds to dive deep into her blistering heat, while his thumb worked at her puckered hole, his wicked, wicked mouth showing Eden exactly how very little she knew her of own body. There was nothing but the explicitness of this act, the hyper awareness that made her feel like each inch of her body was struck by lightning, that killed her and gave her life all in one electrifying jolt. He was merciless and perfect, inviting her to shove her hips back and ride his face.

Death was imminent, sweet cataclysmic death seduced her into the gaping, welcoming arms of her orgasm. She plummeted, shattered into delicious little pieces on his tongue and fingers. Recuperating wasn’t in the stars for her as he gripped her hips and plunged into her depths in one long stroke. Pulling her arms and folding them at the small of her back, he held them there with one large hand as he sank in deeper, so deep that it hurt so good. Ass high in the air, face down in the sheets, Eden was at his complete mercy, filled to absolute capacity with his cock, and she whimpered, the vulnerability of her position giving her a sweet high.

“I’m going to beat this pussy, Eden, and you’re going to scream my name.”

And she did, a promise made completely true as he fucked her like a porn star. She screamed like the world was falling, his repeated strike against her G-spot making her see stars. It was too damn much, his jarring thrusts so deep that she could taste him, spurred her fall and she orgasmed on every inch of his cock.

 MY REVIEW

Francette Phal never ceases to give readers stories that entertain, amaze, and startle. Monster is just such a story. Dominic, particularly, is that startling character who grows so much you have to change your opinion of him, eventually.

If I had one criticism of the execution of the story, it would be the way he arrived there. Dominic’s backstory was so compelling, once we were let into it, you couldn’t help but have much sympathy for a man who endured what he had. However, waiting to let the reader into it so late may have colored the views of some readers who wondered why he chose to be such a brutal husband to his wife.

Eden is a sympathetic character whose early decisions we weren’t privy to until much later, as well. Ms. Phal wove conflict throughout the story, some via vivid showing, and others via telling. This is something many new writers, myself included, struggle with from time to time. While these are things a good developmental editor can catch and correct, the average reader may not be as interested in the mechanics as much as the volatility of the story.

Monster delivers the punch and visceral emotion one comes to expect of Ms. Phal’s stories and barring the aforementioned issues, the premise, as good stories should, grabs and holds you until the end. My rating for Monster is 3.5 out of 5.

    Monster was really good. Initially I was taken a back by the beginning but after that, it was all good. By the end Dominic had me under his spell
