When Fire scorches Air, Vexx has no choice but to embrace the burn…
Free-spirited Aer Elemental Vexx finds herself in an ironic predicament when her boss pairs her up with Byrn, a brazen Fyre Elemental, to complete an undercover mission at a BDSM club. She’s been secretly crushing on Byrn for months, so playing Domme to his arrogant, snarky sub is a dream come true. Not only that, she can finally turn the tables on him for the all the suggestive taunting he dishes on a regular basis. But one small problem prevents Vexx from fully embracing her role. If Byrn touches her, she’s dead.
 

Vexxed is the latest installment in the Just Breathe Ephemera. The Ephemera serve as small spaces in time for the characters of the series. The story features two characters that will be in Just Breathe, Byrn and Vexx. Byrne is, you guessed it, a Fyre Elemental. Vexx is an Aer Elemental who is assigned to stake out a BDSM club with Vexx acting as her submissive. But in the Elemental game of Paper-Rock-Scissors, Fyre trumps Aer which means one slip-up will be the end of Vexx.

Riddle me this, boys and girls: How do you write a sexy story in which the two main characters can't touch without one of them being destroyed? I personally wasn't sure it could be done, or at least done well. Seriously, isn't the smexy all about being able to grope, fondle, caress, etc? In Vexxed, author Kendall Grey shows that sometimes, the tease, the tension built up by want and need, can almost be as sexual as the main event. And if that isn't enough to satisfy, a good rubber catsuit and a little self-manipulation just might do the trick.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, Grey has a talent for erotica. She delivered one helluva story with Stifle, affectionately referred to a "Sinnder-Smut". And while Vexxed wasn't as hardcore as Stifle, it was sexy in it's own way. It also made me laugh, feel wistful, and want to know Vexx and Byre even more.

Vexxed was a fast, sexy read. One that I enjoyed, but would have loved more of. At this point, I'm considering just sending Grey any sexy scenario I can think of involving her characters, and enjoying whatever she comes up with. First up would definitely be "Scarlet-Smut." I'm positive that bitch is downright freaky in bed.


Favorite Quote:

  "You know as well as I do that Elementals don't dream. But I can rock your fantasies with a sonic cock boom you'll never forget." (18%)

  "Vexx draped her torso across Byrn's chugging chest, dropped her lips within an inch of his and breathed in his spicy scent. Their eyes locked. She swiped the reddish stubble on his cheek. 'This is gonna hurt.'
  Fire lit his irises. 'I sure hope so.' " (71%)

  2. I need to get this one. It's the only one I don't have yet because I was waiting on B&N. They are so friggin slow with putting their ebooks up.
