Larry woke up as Lacey, for no reason that he (now she) could see. What is this compulsion to head to the beach in her briefest bikini, and how is it connected to both Spring Break...and the staff of local strip club Absolute Ecstasy? And why, when her mind is still male, does she feel such an attraction...such a HEAT...for a guy she's never met before?
The following review was originally published by Tera on her Blog, A Succubi's Tale on April 24, 2016
Larry wakes up to find that he is now a she, and the universe seems to believe that Lacey has always been who she is. A mystery awaits, questions need to be answered, but the biggest one is why she remembers her past and no one else does. Compelled by magic is only the beginning for Lacey as she encounters her new reality and what it means for her.
The work tells the story of Lacey as she tries to deal with her new reality, to understand why things have happened to her and why it is that she cannot help herself from her desires. But it’s a little bit more than that in how, when she meets someone, that changes things and a cute little romance starts to unfold.
There are some ups and downs, a rough point in which magic takes a hand in things, but there’s a lovely connection that forms between Lacey and her lover that I warmed to as the story unfolded. It is in the magic where the succubus of the story, Stacy appears. While it isn’t exactly clear that Stacy is a succubus, she has all of the aspects of one in her true physical form. Otherwise, she is the embodiment of sexuality and that comes out a lot over the course of the work.
Stacy isn’t stereotypical, thankfully, and being so there’s a kind of “wish fulfillment” aspect to her character that I liked. I also enjoyed the descriptions of her effects on others, and the secrets that were revealed as well. There’s a strong hint as to why she’s part of this work from the moment she appears, but the reveal manages to keep buried in the plot through the erotica.
While the characters were quite good, the reveal as to why things happened, why Lacey came to be, is, at least for me, a little bit thin. When the time comes for explanations, the answers are given so quickly and off handedly, that they seemed a bit rote, a bit rehearsed and not quite believable. It seemed rushed, needing to be dealt with as soon as can be in order to make room for the ending.
The ending would be fine for the most part, except that the reason for how the work ends, what the cause is, and what it means is, I felt, tacked onto the end. I was hoping for something more substantial, but it isn’t. Again, as the explanation for the main plot was, it seemed very off handed, quickly dealt with, and it didn’t quite work for me.
Setting all that aside, the writing is very good, the characters have depth, and I liked the story as a whole. But it’s difficult to reconcile the story with the ending and the reasons why.
Three and a half out out of five pitchforks.
A cute little mystery, characters that hold their own, but in the end, the reasons for why things happened weren’t quite up to the author’s usual standards. Nor was the ending, which seemed a bit of a cop out in the end.
