Aphrodite Calling (Gods of Love #2), by Jennifer Lynne is a beautifully written, almost poetic novella. It features Gina, a post-surgical transgender woman, who through the divine intervention of Aphrodite the Greek goddess of love, beauty, pleasure, and procreation, finally rids herself of all vestiges of the guilt and shame of her transition that she carries with her like a boat anchor.
Through the erotic kisses, gentle caresses and sexual passion of Aphrodite’s studly male envoy Himeros, not to mention the explosive sensuality of their coital couplings, Gina finally achieves the powerful experience of life as a truly female being. This little novel is so wonderfully graphic, descriptive and incredibly titillating that the reader is privileged to be able to ride to this experience, stroke by stroke, right along with Gina.
