EROTICA/ROMANCE NOVELS

LIKE A MASK REMOVED, VOL. 2: EROTIC TALES OF SUPERVILLAINS

Once again, Cecilia Tan and Bethany Zaiatz have edited this an anthology from Circlet Press, this time focusing in the sex lives of supervillains. With 5 stories written by 5 different authors.

1/INVISIBLE TOUCH by Erin O’Riordan
A powerful supervillainess called FATE, who has the ability to steal powers from other superhumans, is approached in her penthouse by a superhero called THE INVISIBLE MAN, who wants to convince to turn good, and become a superheroine. But when she rejects his attempt to appeal to her sense of decency, he tries to seduce her. What follows is some hot, but playful, sex on a bed, between a superwoman and a man whom she can’t even see.

5 STARS

2/POW! BASH! YES! YES! by Sophie Mouette

Superheroine HEALING FIRE goes to a lesbian club, which is having a costumed ball, and meets a woman dressed up like the supervillainess SAMHAIN KISS. The sparks fly between the immediately, but things get dangerous when it turns out that the woman in the Samhain Kiss costume isn’t just a party-goer, she’s the real deal, and she abducts Healing Fire back to her secret lair, for some FemDom games. Moutte did a good job in expressing both the fear and arousal that was going through the mind of Healing Fire, as Samhain Kiss began to punish her.

5 STARS

3/THOSE WHO FAVOR FIRE by Layla Lawlor
This is a m/m story, a male superhero and a male supervillain meet in a secret club, just for meta-humans. The club is basically a neutral zone, where all rivalries are temporarily set aside. For many meta-humans, sex with a normal human is too dangers (see: MAN OF STEEL, WOMAN OF KLEENEX) It’s an interesting concept, that starts off well, but I had to stop reading once it go to the sex. Sorry, but that’s just not my thing. I can still give it at least 3 stars, based on the half of the story that I did read. If you’re into M/M erotica, then I’d guess you’d probably enjoy this story

3 OUT OF 5 STARS

4/JETSTREAM by Pencildragon
Jetstream is a Black superheroine (& famous celebrity), with the power to run at superspeed. One day, while stopping a routine bank-robbery, she’s inexplicably captured by a supervillainess (& apparent dominatrix) called The MYSTRESS, taken to a cage, and sexually tortured and raped. But part of her actually likes it. I found this story kinda hot, particularly when The Mystress is personally abusing Jetstream, but I can see how some readers might be a bit uncomfortable with the non-consensual sex that’s depicted here, so I’d advice discretion when reading it.

4 OUT OF 5 STARS

5/BRIDGE OVER SHIFTER’S CHASM by Raven Kaldera
I got the gist of this one, before I had to stop reading. It involves a mutant hermaphrodite “troll”, who is the secretary for a major superhero team, having sex with a female supervillain shapeshifter, while that woman is in the form of a male superhero. Again, that sort of subject matter just isn’t my thing, no offense to the author.

N/A

So, overall, this is shorter than Vol. 1, I would have liked if they’d included a few more stories, but it’s still an enjoyable collect, that I’d give 4 OUT OF 5 STARS, and recommend to erotica fans who also like superheroes. It is available as an ebook on AMAZON and directly from the CIRCLET PRESS WEBSITE.
