The Sexphiles: Haunting Melody by Kimberly Zant

I still know next to nothing about Kimberly Zant… if anyone knows anything about her, I’d appreciate some feedback.  I like to know at least a little about the authors I read.

I frankly don’t know where I picked this eBook up at, possibly part of a collection or maybe from Amazon, Barnes & Noble or possibly years ago from Fictionwise.  I never got around to reading it until this week.

The story is an obvious erotic spoof of The X-Files with the main characters working for either the FBI (Florida Bureau of Investigations) or the PIA (Private Investigators Association), Dianne Skelley and Sly Mullien as they investigate strange cases.  In this case, they first meet and investigate and are assigned a case to investigate a old plantation style house that appears to be haunted.  The ghost rapes Dianne while she’s showering at the house the first night they stay to investigate…although frankly, she more enjoys it that is actually physically or emotionally injured.  Roles are reversed and Sly is the skeptic and Dianne is the one more inclined to believe. They are joined early on by Dianne’s identical sister, Dee who is an paranormal investigator.  Soon, Dee is also raped by the the ghost, although she is more “injured” by the ghost, although only emotionally as she was having an orgasm when she realizes it’s a ghost rather than Sly.

The story is really more of a short story than a novel at only around 125 pages and while Kimberly writes very well and has some of the most approachable, if unrealistic, sex scenes of any modern erotica, what she does lack is convincing closure in her stories.  Admittedly, this appears to be an intended recurring series of stories, the ending was, much like others I’ve read of hers, ends rather abruptly.  Never the less, it’s an enjoyable romp, if short.

Surrender – Kimberly Zant

Who is Kimberly Zant?  I’m assuming that this is a nom de plume since I can find no information about this individual, even their publisher only says that she enjoys the spicier side of life and a good erotic yarn…that’s it.  If any of my readers know or have a clue, I’d be interested in finding out.

I’ve read a couple of her books, and frankly, this is by far the best of what I’ve read.  Let me be clear, I personally have not interest in a ménage à trois, ménage à quatre or more so I was very skeptical of the story when I found it on Fictionwise (before they were bought by Barnes & Noble) and bought it because I had credits that were about to expire. I am happy to say that I was very surprised how enjoyable, if not implausible, the whole story was.

In an act of desperation to keep her children, Anna sells herself as a sex slave to a group of men for six weeks.  If she doesn’t come up with some very necessary funds quickly, her asshole of an ex husband is going to win the custody case against her.  She signs a contract that essentially gives these undisclosed and sight unseen men rights to do just about anything and everything they desire to her and with her, except kiss.  She believes she can close her eyes “and think of England”, get it over with, and no one would be the wiser and when it’s over she won’t have to see these men again and she would keep telling herself it was for the right reasons.

From the very beginning she’s subjected to things that she found to be distasteful and embarrassing, but, she also experiences something she didn’t expect….she’s actually excited and frankly, getting very hot…  But, she keeps asking herself, why her?  She’s not young, she’s not overly attractive, she’s slightly older than most of these men.  Why do these men look like they’re related?  They’re obviously rich, so, why do they need to hire someone for their pleasure?

Nothing is quite what it seems…these men are not callus as they first appear to be and generally take great care not to actually injure her either physically or emotionally.  Could she actually coming to like these men?  What happens when the six weeks are up, can she bear to loose them?

The sex scenes are well written and hot….I mean scorching, yet, not overly explicit and from a very personal point of view and are as much her reactions and feelings as they are about the sex.   The main fault is the very abrupt ending.  Throughout the story ebbs and wanes and reaches a climax in a single ending chapter….then just ends….no cuddling or anything  (sorry, couldn’t resist).
