Smashwords book reviews by Springtime Books

  • Shaikh-Down on Oct. 21, 2012

    Decadent western mores slap stifling medieval manners around the face and lose. Nothing could have prepared Cass and Eddy, the chief protagonists, for what was to come when they dumped their unwanted pasts at check-in and headed for the oasis. Follow them as they struggle to keep their heads above water (and on their shoulders). An (almost) bloodless coup upsets the expat apple cart of decadent days and raunchy nights, forcing the lotus eaters to hitch up their skirts and scramble for the border. A delicious, laugh-out-loud, randy romp through the myopic and bawdy world of Gulf expatriate life set against the chilling winds of change.
