About America’s Darlings:

18122559Leah Collins is a sexual gymnast, a brilliant athlete poised to compete in the Mexico City Olympic Games of 2112. She takes pride in her advanced skills in the sexual arts, but performing Courtesan’s Treat and Raging Volcano in front of thousands of cheering fans is no easy task, especially when sexual malfunctions threaten. At her side, a pillar of strength and compassion, is her best friend, Benson White. He is the one who scrapes her from the ground when her self-destructive tendencies surface. Benson is a talented sexual gymnast in his own right, the other half of America’s Darlings. They hope for a gold medal. What neither of them expects is to fall in love.

Inside Scoop:

This book contains a mixed-gender menage, girl-on-girl, references to male/male sex, group sex, voyeurism, exhibitionism and everything else you’d expect from a society where sex is a game. An Exotika(r) futuristic erotica story from Ellora’s Cave.

My Thoughts on America’s Darlings:


Well!  Quite the interesting book with an interesting (and unexpected) premise.  America’s Darlings takes place during the 2012 Olympics in Mexico.  This is not 2012 of today however.  Instead it is a World where there has been a new sexual revolution following major advances in medicine, especially relating to STD’s.  The World’s view of sexual actions has become much more accepting and open, to the point that it is considered to be natural and therefore a necessity.  Things like menages or sleeping around are no longer considered taboo and you can even visit various locations where, as they say, anything goes.

Due to these changes, there is at least one new event in the Olympics – Sexual Gymnastics.  Leah and Benson are America’s Best due to there ability to excite the viewing audience and even ‘finish them off’ without even once being touched. In the story, we ‘viewed them performing some very precise and regulated choreographed routines.  These routines involved some very sensual moves, actual gymnastics and several things found in the kamasutra, all very interesting to be sure.

I think I needed a few diagrams to follow exactly what body parts went where when. lol  Nevertheless, I completely understood that they were in front of a live audience as well as filmed for TV while on a gym mat to music.  As for any other specifics, I am going to refer you to the book. ;)

So how did I feel about the storyline and how it was presented?  Well, I will admit that even though I regularly read Erotica, even I raised my eyebrows a few times here.  I think some of that was the unique setting.  Did I enjoy it?  I’d say yes though I probably would not read it again.  That has nothing really to do with the quality of the book, the writing or the talent of the author.  I give her very high marks for creativity.  So if you have an open mind, enjoy erotica and are looking for a change of pace, be sure to read America’s Darlings.

**4.5 Stars!!**

About Author Gail Bridges:

Gail BridgesMy real name is Evelyn Arvey.  My erotica work is written under the pen name Gail Bridges to keep it clearly separated from the mainstream novels I write under my own name.   For the past several years, as Gail Bridges, I have been writing full time.

In the past, however, I have worked in a variety of different areas – all of them creative in one way or another.  I have a BFA from the University of Washington in painting, and my art degree has served me well.

For well over fifteen years I made award-winning Fine Art Jewelry (silver and handmade ceramics) and sold it at local and regional Fine Art and Craft shows.  My business, Vivid Arts, flourished.

I also play the classical guitar.  My duo (please see link to left) has become well-regarded in the Seattle area, and we are currently working on recording tracks for our first CD.

I live in Seattle, Washington with my husband and five cats.
