What Wendy Wants
By Nikki Sex
Rating: 4 Glasses of Wine

After thirteen years of marriage and three children, Wendy Hayward is bored with sex.As much as she loves her husband, Wendy married “Mr. Vanilla.” Now she reads nothing but steamy erotic romance stories on her Kindle and fantasizes about having sex with fictional characters, complete strangers, and tattooed rock stars.One fateful day however, her husband grabs the wrong Kindle on the way to work, and discovers some of Wendy’s more "interesting" fantasies. Unbeknownst to Wendy, Frank is very keen to fulfill every one of her secret desires. 
Our Review:

Most of the time, I don't read book summaries and therefore don't have any preconceived ideas of what a book is about.  The opening scene of this book had me convinced I was going to be reading the equivalent of a porn.  And really, I was ok with that!  That's not quite what I read though.  And surprisingly, I was ok with that too!

This novella was a quick read.  I finished it in about an hour (that's without any interruptions from my hubby, daughter or dog, which I am usually not lucky enough to have).  

The story was so totally real life......ok it was almost MY life!  I'm not dissatisfied with my sex life at all, but after seven years with my awesome hubby, sex can sometimes be the last thing on either of our minds.  It was so refreshing to read something realistic!  Don't get me wrong, I love living in the fantasy world of most books I read.   But sometimes I get annoyed with the completely unrealistic scenes and characters in the novels I read.  

Wendy was my kind of girl.  I loved that she tormented her kids and hid in the bathroom to get away from them.  I loved what she read.  I'm pretty sure she would be part of White Zin Bookends if she was a real person! And I loved that she was a little afraid to talk to her husband about her fantasies.  I know you're asking why I would love that.  It's because it made her totally REAL and RELATABLE! 

This novella was the perfect length.  I imagine that trying to stretch it into a full length novel would detract from the story of Wendy and Frank.  It didn't need a bunch of fluff or build up.  It was a great read exactly the way it was.

In closing, I'm giving What Wendy Wants 4 glasses of White Zin

About the Author:
Hey there, I'm Nikki Sex and I write adult romance and erotica.

Yes, you are of course correct, that isn't my real name. I'm a complete coward where my mother is concerned. The "OMG what would Mom think?" is still sitting right there in the back of my mind like another conscience (only an extremely prudish one!) Luckily my mother is in denial. She still thinks I was a virgin when I got married.
