Freebie Fiction Friday - Putting the TG in TGIF!

Well, if it's Friday, then that must been it's time for Freebie Fiction Friday . . . time to put the 'TG' in TGIF!

Every Friday I take the initiative to search through thew newly free titles on Amazon, and to identify those that might be of interest to trans* readers, fans, and lovers. 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 iPad, using Kindle for iPad, 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.

A small collection of titles this week, but some exciting titles from some favorite authors.

Waiting on Wednesday - Transgender Lives by Kirstin Cronn-mills

Well, I think we can say we're officially back on track with our "Waiting On" Wednesday spotlight posts, and it's nice to have new titles worth looking forward to! For those of you unfamiliar with the meme, WOW is for upcoming releases that everyone's excited about (created by Jill at Breaking The Spine)


What we're excited about this week is Transgender Lives: Complex Stories, Complex Voices by Kirstin Cronn-mills, coming Aug 1st:

"I didn't hear the word transgender until I was eighteen, when a person I was dating came out as trans. My boyfriend came out as my girlfriend, and I thought, 'What . . . is that?' She said, 'I just don't think I'm a man.' And I said, 'Guess what? Neither do I.' And then the skies parted, and I understood who I was."—Katie Burgess, nonprofit director and community activist/organizer

Meet Katie, Hayden, Dean, Brooke, David, Julia, and Natasha. Each is transgender, and in this book, they share their personal stories. Through their narratives, you'll get to know and love each person for their humor, intelligence, perseverance, and passion. You'll learn how they each came to better understand, accept, and express their gender identities, and you'll follow them through the sorrows and successes of their personal journeys.

Transgender Lives helps you understand what it means to be trans* in America while learning more about transgender history, the broad spectrum of transgender identities, and the transition process. You'll explore the challenges transgender Americans face, including discrimination, prejudice, bullying and violence, unequal access to medical care, and limited legal protections. For transgender readers, these stories offer support and encouragement. Transgender Lives is a space for trans* voices to be heard and to express the complexities of gender while focusing on what it means to be human.


How about you? What are you waiting for?

The Punishment by Troy King

Please Note: The following review is suitable for adults only.

Maybe it's just my own particular taste in erotic fiction lately, or maybe it's just the titles and covers I'm most drawn to, but there seems to be a dominant (tee-hee) trend in forced feminization stories written by those of us who already possess a passion and a fetish for crossdressing. That's not a complaint, not by any means, just an observation.

With The Punishment, we get a story that most certainly bucks that trend. Troy King presents us with a bold, strong, completely masculine stud who has never shown the slightest inclination towards women's clothing. He and his wife like to play BDSM games, and she is a stern Mistress who doesn't necessarily seek to humiliate her husband, but who enjoys his discomfort.

Their scene progresses slowly, beginning with some restraints, a little spanking, a chastity device, and a lot of oral gratification for Mistress Minerva. Troy certainly has a knack for setting and exploring a scene, and his bondage and punishment is about as erotic as they come. By the time the bra and panties come out, wearing them is really just another level of submission, but it's an exciting one - especially with a trip through the drive-thru waiting.

Sexy and bold, with an intimate understanding of power exchange dynamics, and an intimate knowledge of what arouses both men and women, this is a fantastic read.

Pink Evolution: An Institute Tale by Lyka Bloom

If you've been following along with my reviews, the you know how much I've been enjoying Lyka Bloom's Tales of the Institute series. It really is one of the most stunning and imaginative pieces of transgender erotica out there, stunningly detailed, and clearly written with an intimate appreciation for the subjects of female domination and (sometimes forced) feminization.

You likely also know that the story has been taking something of a darker turn, with the luscious Lady B moving farther and farther away from helping sissies and shemales find themselves, and deeper and deeper into forcing men and women to adopt the roles her fetishes she demands. She crossed a dangerous line last time out, converting a police detective into a wanton bimbo slut, and now must deal with a partner who is convinced she had something to do with the detective's sudden disappearance.

I really like the way Bloom developed the story of Pink Evolution, book 5 in the series, with Lady B's plan for dealing with Detective Dawes starting out almost innocently, altering subtly, and then taking a radical turn to suit her own whims. You can literally see the moment where her lust gets the best of her, and where her good intentions are overcome by wanton desires. What's more, for the first time in the series, a submissive challenges her, suggesting that she has gone too far, setting up what is sure to be an explosive next chapter.

As has been the case with the first four chapters, this a sexy, sensual, imaginative romp. The complimentary transformations of Detective Dawes and his wife are wonderfully portrayed, evolving as much through word play and emotion as through any sort of physical submission. We don't encounter anything new in terms of locations or techniques, but that's fine because we already understand how Lady B's empire works. I must say, the final confrontation genuinely shocked me, and leaves me really excited to see how the story develops next.

Friday Night 2: Trixie by Paul Zante

Please Note: The following review is suitable for adults only.

When you're already accustomed to being dressed like a slut, and have already sucked two of your coworkers to orgasm (one of whom was so excited, he came on your face before you could even open your mouth), where does a Mistress take you next? Well, if you're Trixie, what's next involves not only getting dressed up like a hooker, but stepping out into the street and earning those heels.

Yes, in Friday Night 2: Trixie, Paul Zante pushes his eager sissy beyond his limits, putting Trixie in an extremely uncomfortable, yet undeniably sexy predicament. Before we get there, however, there's a whole opening sub-plot about Trixie's outfit not coming with panties. It seems Mistress Claire is going to generously share her own, but only once her slut teases the wet, cum-soaked material from deep inside her well-used sex. That, I must say, is one of the sexiest, juiciest scenes I have read in quite some time!

In a nice, realistic sort of twist, Zante ensures his sissy is never in any real danger, and has all the coaching he needs, thanks to a pair of glasses rigged with a camera, microphone, and speakers. His Mistress can watch his every move, hear his every word, and speak to him like a sexy, domineering conscience. Watching Trixie fumble through his first pick-up attempts at the bar is delightful, and you can't help but share in the nervous anticipation as he drags his first john out back for a blowjob behind the dumpster.

Not content to leave it there, Zante concludes the story with a brief third arc in which Trixie returns home to his Mistress, unsettled and uncertain about the whole scenario. He's scared, he's feeling guilty, and he's having a hard time acknowledging his feelings. Being able to see Mistress Claire so deftly expose the true sissy inside, forcing him to confront the fact that he really did enjoy it, provides the story with a truly happy ending.


Lakebridge: Autumn by Natasha Troop (Guest Review)

For those of you who missed it, I played the role of guest reviewer over at Beauty in Ruins yesterday, where I had the chance to sign the praises of the lovely Natasha Troop, and share my thoughts on Lakebridge: Autumn, the third volume of her Lakebridge Cycle.


Why might you care? Well, aside from the fact that the Lakebridge Cycle is a fantastic horror saga that really deserves to achieve some mainstream, mass-market success, Natasha is a fellow trans-sister who some of you may recognize from her Teaching Trans article in Frock last year.

Please, stop on by, check out my review, and then run out and grab all three books for a perfect summer read. :)

Cuckolded by a Girl Gang by Kylie Gable

Please Note: The following review is suitable for adults only.

In Taken by a Girl Gang we learned what happens when a proud young businessman makes the fatal mistake of verbally lashing out at the local all-girl gang when he should have just averted his eyes, ducked his head, and ignored them.

With Cuckolded by a Girl Gang, Kylie Gable picks up after poor Wesley's humiliating total feminization and explores the ongoing consequences of that original ill-timed outburst. Not only do we get to see what further delights the gang have planned for him, but we slowly learn just what role the people closest to him have to play in his fate - and there are definitely some surprises there!

I loved the continued evolution of Wesley's relationship with his secretary, and thought her rise to business prominence was well-played. I would have liked to see more reaction from his wife, even if was just to tease him and string him along, but the final revelation of how she deals with the situation is fitting. I won't say more on that, but this is, after all, a story about being Cuckolded by a Girl Gang.

If you came away from the first book thinking Wesley got off lucky, then rest assured he is pushed well beyond his limits here. His makeover at the nail and hair salon run bun Lizette's sister is a lot of fun, but it's when he's delivered to the Toro Loco Motorcycle Gang as a gratuity that things get sloppy and intense. Once again, Gable presents us with a fantasy that's dark and sometimes violent, often more humiliating than erotic, but it's an exciting tale. Personally, I would have loved a tidy, humiliatingly happy sort of epilogue, but I'm not sure Wesley ever will adjust to his new role . . . and that's just fine.
