One of the great things about reading other people's reviews is that I am reminded of great stories that I read in the seemingly-distant past. Then my gluttony for escape into fiction forces me to put away work for a while, and immerse myself into another world.
"The Jag Lady" is such a story. Al Steiner is of course one of the greatest current erotica authors. His stories go so far beyond the average that they sometimes need to have a completely different scale: it is as if they must be judged entirely as "Al Steiner stories" rather than in comparison with other authors.
So when Al sets out to write a stroke story, it is powerful, deep, and rich. It has a plot, with sub-plots. It has character development. It forces the reader to examine attitudes long held. And it is HOT!
OK, there are a few typos. In this case: who cares?
This may be one of Al's shorter stories. Yes, we'd love to hear how Taya helps Mark with some of his other issues with his young girl friend, but Al is too busy populating yet another universe for this to be likely in the near future.
So enjoy this story as a small but perfectly formed gem. Enjoy yourself: it's what Taya would have wanted.
The Jag Lady is pure, hot fun. Set in Steiner's mythical Heritage County, it tells of a 20 year old college student who runs into a 40 year old trophy wife who gets off on speed and young boys. Whether it's a blow job at 136 miles an hour or screwing on the hood of her Jaguar, she teaches him some lessons he's not due to forget soon. As with most of Al's stuff, it's as good as it gets. And you'll love the name of the coffee house he works for.
