Today I am pleased to present the review and giveaway for Trouble at the Hotel Baba Ghanoush by T. C. Archer.
Title: Trouble at the Hotel Baba Ghanoush
Author: T. C. Archer
Genre: Erotic Sci-fi
Publisher: Loose Id
Book Description: Enforcer Fontana Marks is on vacation undercover until she has to testify against the Track Cartel for crimes against the Galactic Coalition. But the cartel is hiding something, and Fontana intends to find out what–then make them pay for murdering Jenny, the young scientist Fontana failed to protect on a previous assignment.
The last thing Fontana intends to do while vacationing incognito on the fantasy resort Sagitariun is follow the advice of her superior. “Rest, recuperate, and find a man.”
But how can a woman resist a blond, blue-eyed, chisel-jawed, great-assed man streaking naked in public when he’s obviously running from someone? And why can’t she to get rid of the damned trench coat she stole to rescue him?
A novella-length adventure set in worlds unfamiliar and filled with graphic erotic encounters between the two main characters is the basic outline of the plot. While the worlds created are futuristic and quite unique, they are described in quick, tightly written phrases to best fix their vision in the reader’s memory. The characters are revealed slowly, and developed as the story progresses, and provide enough information and interplay for them to work well within the adventure they have embarked upon.
At its heart, this is a novella that requires you suspend your need for reality for the time you are reading – it is completely engaging with several incredibly well detailed sexual encounters. Having read many erotic stories, it is rare that there is something different and unique to the erotic components. T. C. Archer has managed to create a scene that is both unique and memorable, when the main characters experience a sexual encounter from their partner’s point of view. We see a woman having the reactions of a man, and vice versa. Written with a sense of wonder despite the fantastical premise of the scene – it was a highlight.
This is an 18+ book which held interest even without the erotic component: a must have for a read that I enjoy.
