Note: I received this review copy of Whipped by Sabrina York for free through NetGalley in return for an honest review. The opinions and thoughts I share in this review are my own.
Please note if you’re looking for this on Amazon: Whipped is published for a limited time as part of the ‘Brought to His Knees’ anthology but it will later (apparently) be published as a novella.
Whipped is a relatively short story at around 50 pages but I certainly enjoyed it!
Mourning the loss of his best friend (to marriage, not death) alpha male Dane takes solace in the arms of a hooker for a night while in Las Vegas for the bachelor party and wedding of said best friend. Unfortunately, the ‘hooker’ is actually his best friends sister, Tina. The morning after, with no knowledge of who the mystery woman really was, Dane is shocked to see her cosy-ing up to the bride and even more disturbed to find out he’s broken the bro code (a few times!) with his best friend’s sister – a massive no-no if ever there was one. Unfortunately feelings start to come into the matter and Tina and Dane find themselves unable to stay away from one another or stave off the jealousy when they see the other speaking to someone else when they’re apart. Will Dane give in and confess his attraction – and maybe even love – for the out-of-reach sister of his best friend since childhood?
Overall this was a decent short story and the genres that fit it best are, I believe, contemporary fiction and mild erotica. I found the characters to be well written and introduced and their personalities really came through the authors writing. I would have loved a longer story with more in it but for the length it was good. As an enjoyable but quick read, I can imagine that this would be a great addition to an anthology.
Rating: ♥♥♥ – I liked it
