Crystal Veeyant is a natural born storyteller, one who clearly understands that the best erotica is made up of equal parts fantasy and reality, carefully layered against one another so that the reader is never jarred from the fantasy, but instead eased both in to and out of it. Her characters are wonderfully human - flawed, vulnerable, and sympathetic - and there is a clear delineation between lust and love that is all too often overlooked in similar stories.
With Shemale Vice we get a story that strays very much into the real of fantasy, but which never loses sight of its crime drama roots. It is a story of (sometimes broken) dreams and (often not-so) innocent fantasies. There is even a genuine love story running through the story tweaks your heart strings just as effectively as the sex scenes tweak other places.
The sex scenes here (and there are a lot of them!) are almost perfect in their execution, so gorgeously described that you will find it hard to finish the story in one sitting. The important details are slightly exaggerated, playing to the fantasy angle, but not so much so that the reader is forced to question things like size and stamina. Ultimately, though, it is in the climactic moments where Crystal really shines, offering up messy mutual orgasms that satisfy all.
Alongside the sex is a story that is as full of drama and romance as any reader hope to experience, with an ending that might be just a bit too tidy, but which left me with the biggest smile of all. The characters are solid, and the dialogue is perfectly suited to the crime drama story. In the end, Crystal really brings the various elements of the story together, resolving them in such a way that you are left pleasantly surprised, and entirely satisfied.
