Well, good ol' Shakes has done it again. He's given us a relatively short story that is SIZZLING hot in it's content.
"Jen at Jamba" is set in Shakes' "Wheels of Fortune" series. The theme, again, is not new. But, it is treated well and the twists come from the heroin again.
Jen is a young adult that has some issues about her dead father. Struggling with things she felt left unfinished in her past, she enlists the help of our story's hero, Ted.
Ted exhibits as much conscience in this story as he does in the others he's involved in. This is what I really like about Shakes' work on this series. It's not a "I'll just go for it and fuck the consequences" kind of thing. He gives thought to it. Puts his moral thoughts, ideas and feelings to it. In the end his sense of chivalry wins out.
Sure, some would call it justification. But, it's asked and it's put out there for all to see clearly and it's dealt with rationally. So, if you don't like that conclusion, move along and read something else.
I will tell you this though, once the action really gets started it heats up to a full boil like you can't even imagine. As in all of Shakes' stories, it's hot, it's intense, it's horny and it'll knock the wind out of you.
Enjoy this one and be sure to read the whole series along with the rest of his work.
Definitely one of your best Shakes!
