Review by: Jason Rapczynski on March 20, 2013 :
“The Goat and the Heathen”—a story many readers may check out on the basis of the title alone—is another gem from Jessa Callaver. This one begins with the visual hook of the protagonist, Aja, anxiously “Staring into the white porcelain hollow” (of her toilet), wearing an erotic costume—a “rib-constricting contraption” which makes her feel “like the new whore at a makeshift brothel.” As we enter Aja’s world, we find she has been dressed up by her roommate, Olivia—a promiscuous (or sexually liberated, depending on your point of view) sexy Southern belle, a femme fatale in the making…the type of character one might associate with hardboiled voiceover intros of private dicks in 40s noir. Olivia has surprises galore in store for her less experienced roomie—who’s initially reluctant just to remove the “I Break for Geeks” tank-T she wears like a security blanket over her bodice….

In what follows, Callaver skillfully makes use of an omniscient third-person to take the reader on a tour of the thoughts and sensations experienced by each of the three characters featured in this tale of a tripartite tryst. But this is by no means your average ménage à trois. There are descriptions of foreplay here that will stop you midsentence. You will go back and read them again. Indeed, the narrative itself seems a form of foreplay—aptly punctuated by a question mark after “The End?”

It is a sign we’re left begging for more.

This is a top-drawer short story. The characters are rich and vibrant and the interaction between the characters oh so delicious. This is the first book written by Jessa Callaver and I am most assuredly going to be reading her other works.

This was a short story about a shy girl coming out of her shell, so to speak. The premise of the story was great and the sex was HOT, but I felt like there was something missing. I'm not sure what it was. I just was looking for more. Overall, it was a steamy story though. Quick read with some menage action.

Review by: Midu Hadi on Aug. 16, 2012 :
A short erotic romance.
There's very little story development but the synopsis of the book doesn't promise one.
The romance between the MC is sweet and hot.
The roommate was funny and quirky and I liked her.

Review by: Sheri on March 01, 2012 :
This is the second book I've read by Jessa Callaver, and I loved it as much as the first! She has such a way with words; her descriptions are absolutely amazing.

The Goat and the Heathen is a short story about two roommates who agree to have a threesome, so the more bold of the two finds a guy and sets it up. Needless to say, things get hot and steamy and deliciously romantic.

As I said, the author uses amazing descriptions. It's so easy to picture what you're reading in your head. The writing is clean and very well developed. In writing short stories it's often hard to bring out personalities and get a complete story, but this author does an amazing job. I love the characters she creates. Aja is a little unsure of herself but willing to try new things, Olivia is obviously outgoing and fun loving, and Hayden is sweet and sexy.

I had always wondered about the title of this book…it seems rather odd. But, at the end of the book we get to find out the meaning!

I really hope Jessa will someday write a longer novel, or at least keep writing short stories! I will read everything she writes!

I really liked this story...really well-rounded characters, and I liked the relationship between the two college roommates as much as I did the relationship between the main character, Aja, and Hayden, the boy with whom her roommate arranges the tryst. Kind of a sweet romance meets erotica, which I wish there was more of, frankly. Well written and hot, sensual scenes. Well worth the read!

This was a super sexy short erotica that was very well written. Two roommates invite a hot guy over for an evening of menage. The sex was hot but there was a very sweet romantic twist in the story. The storyline was simple but well developed with characters that you could really get into. A very hot story for those that are over 18 to enjoy

If you think the title is interesting, wait till you read this story! It's well crafted, sexy as hell; simultaneously sweet and hot, hot, HAWT! Jessa Callever does a great job developing the characters and the plot in just a few pages, and delivers on what can only be called a menage-a-twist! Oh and the ending? Super cute :)
