"Sexy Identities 1" is a collection of different stories. It is prefaced by the author explaining "It’s time to appreciate that sexy has never been limited to stereotypes, and time to accept that fantasies are not bound by conventional roles". What he means is, who you truly are is always the sexiest thing to be.
This collection features "Lovers of Sexy Identities", who are simply that. They are the ones who loves the people that are real. The REAL identities. There is a lot to love and there are lots of things to choose from that will tickle your fancy. Cosplay? Check. Romance? Check. Paranormal and supernatural themes? Check and double check.
Each story has its own charm, its own naughtiness, it's own lust that practically jumps down your throat (if that's what you want it to do). The one I liked the most was "Looking for Group" about a cosplay enthusiast who enjoys being invisible in the day, but on her off time, likes to "challenge the authorities with a display of my gloriousness". Talk about female empowerment.
She calls herself the "Lone Avenger" (akin to the "Lone Ranger" for those of you who aren't of the Millennial generation). But alas, she admits that even Lone Avengers get, well, lonely. She gets a little shy and insists that invisibility is her superpower, to remain unseen in the sensual parties and surroundings. But she gets noticed.
Mythical creatures, shamans, little faeries and more sprinkle the seeds vivid seeds of imagination. Like period dramas? Don't you dare skip over "Living the Eighties". This story highlights the best (or possibly worst) the decade, like Duran Duran and big hair, while interweaving it with contemporary ideals that we see every day, like a grainy YouTube video. Poetic, lusty women interwoven in with the nightclub scene mixed with an unsure start of a romance... not one to be missed.
There is something for everyone within "Sexy Identities" so don't pass it by.
