“Assailant’s Greed” by CB Archer

Insane sexy madness, as per usual.  Having read several of these tales, I’ve been trying to come up with an appropriate simile, and I guess about the best I can do is if Terry Pratchett’s Discworld and the 50 Shades books got together and produced a video-game obsessed gay love child.  That doesn’t really do the weirdness of this series justice, but it’s the closest I can come up with without resorting to heavy drugs first, and since it’s only mid-afternoon, I’ll just have to settle for what I can do on organic kombucha.  This time we have a trio who are also friends IRL who have teamed up to take on the game Assailant’s Greed, but they suck at it.  They suck at it so bad that they end up falling into a super-secret part of the game by accident, where they have to engage in some verrrrrrry kinky sex in order to escape and win the game.  I don’t want to reveal any spoilers, but let’s just say there is a sudden sex change of sorts, not to mention some wild shifter sex.  And rather like the Discworld and 50 Shades books, the story flirts with things that IRL would be totally un-okay (female sexuality is threatening, being coerced by dominant Alpha males into having sex with them is totally hot), but somehow here it’s just all part of the pixellated fun.  It would be easy to say that these books have no morals, but they do, of sorts: work together and don’t be a jerk (although it’s okay to…you get it) and things will turn out okay in the end, which is kind of sweet.  Plus, I laughed out loud at least once every chapter!
