Bingain openly admits that this was his first foray into erotic writing, and to be honest, it shows.
That said however, the shortcomings don't detract from a good story, the characterisation is good, and the tale romps along dragging the reader with it.
Technically it's very good, few silly mistakes to spoil the reader's enjoyment, and a happy ending rounds it off nicely.
This story may not set off any fireworks, but it's well worth a read.
This reminds me of the saying "a boy chases a girl until she catches him." James is an exceptionally gifted Account Exec. Who thinks he hates the new brilliant Art Director, Jennifer, Until... until the fateful business trip to NYC. to save one of James original Accounts, with the help of the hated aforementioned Jennifer, whom it seems has secretly fallen in love with her Mentor, our hero James.
It all starts when he is his usual obnoxious self arriving just in time to claim their pre-confirmed seats to NYC, having made Jennifer wait by herself for one whole hour more for James.
So, naturally they save the account, and he buys her a Tiffany necklace and the fireworks start!
So, finally, he realizes that she is the woman for him, and vice versa! And sadly we are not privileged to discover if the hot unprotected lovemaking results in a boy or a girl.
In "The Bitch and the Jerk", Bingain tells us the tale of James and Jennifer. James likes to refer to her as Bitch. Jennifer likes to refer to him as Jerk. They don't get along, but for a few days, they have to. Read along as they attend an out of town business meeting where they have to work together to clinch the deal.
The sex in this story is nicely done. There is a subtle build-up of tension from James' standpoint. Neither of them have had sex in quite some time, so they are both on edge. There is also a decent amount of humor to their sexual tension and aftermath. I liked how it was handled. It's not pure stroke, but pure stroke would have been difficult to work into this tale.
The plot is fast-paced and humorous. Considering this was Bingain's first story, it is actually an excellent first offering. While more meat to the story and more character development are possible, I think they would have made the story itself fail. Part of the beauty of this story was that Bingain was able to bring the characters out without creating a really long tale. Again, difficult for a first time author to accomplish.
Technically, the story is quite good. I noticed a verb tense or two being off, but other than that, very well one. It is great to see a first time author using an editor, and Morgan did a great job.
For a shorter serial, this is one of my favorites. It's a quick read, the characters are amusing, and it always leaves me with a smile on my face. I highly recommend it.
