#Erotica Book Review: Grunt by Kailee Reese Samuels - Giveaway Inside

Grunt, an erotic suspense, is filled with twists and turns. For the unwary reader, it is important to understand that erotic fiction is a form of literary art dating back to the late 18th century when the Marquis de Sade attempted to bring sexual boundaries to the attention of an aristocratic society. Thanks to the groundwork, the literary exploration of BDSM is bursting at the seams.

Grunt explores alternative sexual practices, as well a one man’s search for meaning in the underground world. Now, I AM NOT a practitioner of BDSM, nor am I an erotica fan. That being said, I cannot say whether or not the portrayals within these pages is accurate. What I can say, is that the author emphasizes sane and consensual practices – leverage the power of the safe word.

For readers new to erotic fiction, Grunt may just be the best place to start. The cover is not sexually suggestive, which is nice if you share your Kindle Fire with a loved one. Moreover, the themes covered will easily appeal to those who enjoy crime thrillers and mysteries.

Let’s expand on the topic of erotic fiction, using Grunt as an example. a little more. Many readers, myself included, associate erotica with love and romance. FALSE! Steamy romance novels may be erotic, but erotica is not hot and steamy, love-filled sex. Yes, there is a very thin line, but the structure of the novel tells them apart. In Grunt, we do not see, at least not overtly, the development of a love interest. We see the sex scenes as a part of the story and normal character interaction, and not tied to displays of affection.

The plot of the story is sexually charged and is driven merely by the sexual personality of the main characters. Grunt focuses on Sal’s journey after being kidnapped and going through some horrific experiences. During this journey, his sexual desires drive the story and take the reader from one subplot to the next. For him, his sexuality is how he finds his meaning and ultimately conquers his demons.

Grunt’s literary merit was surprising, as I had a preconceived idea about the genre. I was wrong. The writing was excellent and the word in which Sal resides became real to me. Each character, major and minor, was round and added to a multi-layered plot.

For my erotica fans, Grunt will set your ereader on fire!

Six days.
No one thought I could last
Here in the cell—I now call home
They didn’t know I grew up in the prison of my crime family’s dream.
Six weeks.
No one thought I could withstand
The loss, the drugs, the torture
They didn’t know how much I would enjoy their game.
Six months.
No one thought I could survive
Their puppet and prey—but I like to play—Hard.
And I don’t lose.
They picked the wrong guy. Their so-called ‘grunt’ would fight to get home and take revenge. I vowed to come back—for her—for Kaci. But everything changed.
My maniacal mind wrapped with a pretty mug, I am an unforgiving opponent, tough—tougher than they ever imagined.
And I will never – ever – break.
