Title: She’s With Me
Author Name & Publisher: Vanessa Cardui (Less Than Three Press)
Publication Date & Length:February 3rd 2016

Synopsis

It’s a fact that Izzy likes men. Meeka’s rule is never crush on straight friends. But a single fact isn’t the whole picture, and sometimes rules get broken. On a night out drinking, the two friends stumble into territory that breaks all the unwritten rules, and Izzy learns that ‘likes men’ doesn’t keep her from enjoying the rush of giving Meeka orders—and Meeka will do anything to keep her attention.

This story should come with a NSFW warning. Not because others will see what you’re reading and be offended, but because it’s definitely hot and should be read either in private or near your spouse/significant other/partner/friend with benefits. There don’t seem to be many stories out there written from the Dom/me’s point of view. Some authors I’ve spoken to say that’s because books written from the this point of view just don’t sell. But there’s an obvious lack of these types of stories, so I was pleased to read the point of view in this story. The one thing I didn’t like in this story, is that there is a hint that Izzy is using Meeka. There seems to be a feeling that Izzy is just involved in a big experiment and that she isn’t really invested in the feelings Meeka has for her. The saving grace here is the text message to Izzy’s boyfriend at the end. It was perfect. An enjoyable read, and definitely a new author for me to stalk, er, follow.

This was a very quick read about a friendship which turned into more. Unfortunately, I had a lot of trouble getting into it. I didn’t really feel a lot of emotion between the characters, not even in a friendship sense. There wasn’t enough time for a slow build to Izzy discovering her feelings for Meeka, but it didn’t quite feel hot enough for it to be a situation of Izzy simply being hot for Meeka.

I usually like bi stories, but this didn’t really wok for me because of the above reasons. It would have been terrific if it had been about an established relationship or if it had been a longer slow-bloom romance. I wasn’t at all buying that in Izzy’s first time with a woman, she was completely in control and Meeka was submitting to her. There wasn’t anything I felt crossed into questionable consent (and this was really BDSM-lite anyway), but it didn’t come off as believable.

It was an okay story, but I’d have liked either a longer romance or a quick and dirty, and this didn’t exactly fit either.
