Over the Top

Jean Roberta's incredible review of "Girls Who Score" makes me smile, not just for myself, but for everyone who is part of this great collection, including editor extraordinaire Ily Goyanes. And having my story described as "over the top," well, that's just the cat's meow!

Thank you, Jean!

"Space doesn’t allow me to describe every story in detail, although each one is worth reading. The theme of insults or taunts as thinly-disguised flirting in a sports setting runs through several stories. In the over-the-top “Blood Lust” by Gina Marie, two female boxers face off:
Marinda moved in close and grabbed Rae’s ass, not once removing her dark, vicious gaze from Rae’s reflection in the mirror.
“I know what you want from me, Sugar Rae.”
“Oh, yeah?”
“Yeah, I’ve been around.”
“Don’t fuck with me, Marinda.”
“It’s Lucinda to you, Miss Cherry Pie a la fucking mode.”
“Fine. Don’t fuck with me, Lucinda.”
“Oh, I will fuck with you. I will fuck with you till you can’t take it anymore. But you won’t get it that easy.”
In a surprise ending, both these characters—who address each other as “whore” and “bitch”--are shown to have a romantic streak. As they begin to get better acquainted after the match, they both show all the endearing awkwardness of two dykes on their first date.

This anthology about the sexuality of sporty dykes and the ones who want them is likely to become a classic. It probably won’t be the last work of erotic fiction on this theme."

Keep doing that voodoo that you do so well, little sis!
