Plaything ~ Penny Birch

… “another engaging and arousing read!”

When Penny refrains from having sex for a month, before she is due to leave university and reunite with her lover Amber, there seems no doubt their meeting will be a wild and passionate one. Unfortunately, Professor South has other plans and instructs Penny to set up a departmental field course in Brittany, delaying her return for a further three weeks. Annoyed and frustrated, but with no excuse, she accepts. Although, all is not lost, as she had the delectable Wendy, her recently graduated research student to play with. Don’t worry though; Amber doesn’t mind, in fact, she encourages it, if only to provide an excuse to punish her later…

When Penny rings Amber to tell her the bad news, Amber is disappointed to say the least. However, in an effort to strengthen the tension between them, Amber arranges an unexpected surprise, but will not reveal what it is. Knowing her, Penny suspects it’s a sexual encounter of some sort, but who has been planted to substitute her needs? Is it the flirtatious couple, Natasha and Percy whose classic car has conveniently broken down? Or maybe it’s the peeping Tom, who watches her and Wendy whilst they sunbathe with barely a stitch on?

A really dirty book, written as the author Penny Birch’s alter ego. It will have you reading fast, curious to find out what happens next. I must admit, when the subject of peeing cropped up, for an instant, I wondered if I was the right person to read this book. However, it didn’t put me off, I couldn’t put it down, read it all, and with a satisfaction I can’t explain, reached the end completely impressed. Tell a lie, I can explain. Penny Birch has the ability to write smut, albeit very good smut, with an intelligent, well crafted plot. If you are the adventurous type who can handle the highly erotic, submissive content — do not miss this book! By the way, Percy’s car is not the only classic I have to talk about. Plaything has now been re-released as a Nexus classic! Well done Penny! Keep up the good work! Another engaging and arousing read!
