"He looked like he could rip the world in half."

So, I'm officially declaring myself a Claire Cray fangirl. I really liked Aniki's Garden--great atmospheric writing, excellent tension. She's got great instincts, and I wanted to read more, so I went over to ARe and picked up her entire backlist during one of their rebate sales.

So, this book had the same sort of tense, creepy, but also super sexy vibe that Aniki's Garden did--I think this is something that the paranormal/monster erotica genre has

Enjoyable porny coffee-break-sized fic, with everything happening as it should.

What a little cracker of a short story, and yes it's short but boy does it pack a punch. I loved it. Talk about sexy, this is so hot you could fry an egg on it! Seriously - this story about a guy driving his friends car out to him and breaking down in a backwoods town full of.......... .... (well read it and you'll find out yourselves), reminded me of one those old American B movies and Claire cray captured the atmosphere perfectly, I could almost hear the ' cheesy ' background music building up ...more

Cute and hot.
Definitely enjoyed this! I'm hoping its length means a sequel will follow.

Set to read when I realized I read it a couple years ago. From what I recall it was a blast! Love the paranormal twist.

For such a short story, this has quite an atmospheric wallop to it. And, for now at least, it's free on Amazon.

For what this is, it's pretty good.
An erotic interlude, not much story but effective.
Weird short story. Good. But weird.
Ooh, creepy & arousing.

Pleasantly surprised

This book kept attention which surprised me being that it was so short. The characters while not completely rounded sufficed. The plot was straight forward with some what of a surprise. All in all I liked it.

Free, short, hot, generally enjoyable.

Feels a little open ended, and the sex happens kind of out of nowhere, but for a freebie, not a bad read.

A gorgeous windup (please write more set in your old stomping grounds, you set the scene so beautifully), a sudden hot anal sex scene, and a creepy ending. Over too soon. M/M erotic/supernatural.

Short but wow it packs a lot of a punch. I really enjoyed this as a short sexy read. Atmospheric too.
