"Waiting On" Wednesday - Star Search by Julez S Morbius

"Waiting On" Wednesday spotlights upcoming releases that everyone's excited about (created by Jill at Breaking The Spine.)

Star Search by Julez S Morbius: Joe is a gay man who prefers to date Transsexuals. Never attending work parties, Joe decides to attend this particular one and becomes a bit worried, as he is required to bring a partner. Calling on his best friend Angel for advice, she suggests he hires an escort. Joe goes through the pages on the Internet and finds Star, a stunning petite transsexual and books the evening of the party with her. After spending the most glorious evening and all night with Star, Joe decides he will continue to book Star every weekend. When he gets in touch with the agency he finds out that Star has quit escorting and they can’t give him any more information as to how to get in touch with her. Joe becomes obsessed with finding Star and goes through a lot to find her. Star Search is full of hot, sensuous, tender sex, with underlying currents of crime, intrigue and suspense. Lots of twists and turns, with the ultimate question being…Does Joe find Star, the woman of his dreams? [Nov 30, 2011]

I came across this one quite by accident, through a wonderful post on Transphobia over at The Crypt of Morbius blog. In talking about the book, Morbius says the reason he wrote Star Search was "because of how transsexuals in erotic fiction were portrayed, as nothing more than sex toys." He wants to "redress the balance" by incorporating "love or romance, all things that transsexuals, like everyone else, are entitled to have in their lives." Exciting, empowering, encouraging stuff!

How about you? What are you waiting on this week?
