Slice of Life - Sort of

I have a release this week at Ellora's Cave. This Thursday, September 30th, my second Exotica story, Customer Service will be available. This short tale is torn from the pages of my life. Now don't get all excited - I don't have two hunky men waiting around to pleasure me. But the main character is a mystery shopper, as am I.

I don't often incorporate bits and pieces of my life into my erotic stories, but the idea came to me when I was setting up my mystery shopping schedule for the month. I wondered what it would be like to be assigned a sex toy store or something equally naughty. Thus, the seed of an idea was born.

Customer Service is also the only erotica story I have written in first person. That's just the way the muse told it to me. I tried to rewrite in third person with no luck. But I like how it came out.

Here's a little about the story:

April’s husband divorced her for a snooty saleswoman, leaving her with a bruised and battered self-image. When she evaluates a new sex toy and lingerie store for her job as a mystery shopper, she finds much more than kinky gear. One by one and then together, two hunky salesmen give her the best customer service of her life—emphasis on service—and restore her confidence in the process.

Okay, I may be slow or just particularly clueless, but what is a mystery shopper? It sounds so delicious, whatever it is. I love the sound of this release. Congratulations!

As someone who read the original drafts I can say this one is hawt!! Didn't realize the release was so soon. Congrats :)

Michelle - mystery shoppers or secret shoppers pose as customers to evaluate a store, restaurant or other business for service, quality, etc. I've been doing this on and off for about 10 years.

Thanks, Savannah!

Sooo inviting, Wynter! I loved the excerpt. You really set up the anticipation to make me want to read more.

Btw, in Japan, when a man goes to a soapland, he asks for "customer service." You can imagine what he gets...

Jina - I can imagine what that customer service entails;-)

Congrats on the new release! Woo-Hoo, looks like a doozy!

The vet I used to work for employed secret shoppers. It was always interesting to get the evaluation, and FYI, it took all of 30 seconds to figure out their identity.

Thanks, Dalton. I'm pretty stealthy when I'm on a case;-) Sometimes the scenario itself will give a shopper away if it is repeated too many times.
