The New eBook and oh-so-hot!
Suddenly Sexy!

Suddenly Sexy is a collection of twenty tiny tales designed to make you breathless. Editor Tom Myer of Brilliant Smut Press has compiled twenty of Jamie Joy's hottest itty-bitty flash fiction pieces into one delicious eBook. Now available! Read a sample...YUM!

Here's a Review:

"Suddenly Sexy is a fine collection of erotic short fiction. Each delicious offering tantalizes the senses. Highlights include "Player", a story that incorporates sensuality with a good dose of truth men can learn from, and "Summer Storm", a beautifully captured moment of self-love. Other outstanding stories are "Eye of the Beholder", a look at man-to-man passion, and "Maia’s Perfect Hands", an emotionally-charged tale of a woman who doesn't see herself as she really is, and a man too shy to let her know how he feels. With characters and settings as diverse as the sexual persuasions explored, Suddenly Sexy is a collection to be thoroughly enjoyed by lovers of erotic fiction."

Kate Hill, Editor of Anxiety Publications, Author of The Darkness Therein and The Immaculate
