In "Return from Sally Island”, we have the story of a 26yr old guy attending law school that receives an email from one of his deceased father's clients, indicating that their mother had died, and they need help. Knowing a little about the person's family, our intrepid hero makes arrangement to head to Sally Island and help out. Read along and find out what happens.

The sex in the story is there, but it isn't written for pure stroke. There is anticipation, build-up, but I never got that into it. It's hard to put a finger on why, but I think the author did too good of a job making me feel the hero's argument for why they shouldn't. At least, not yet. But that's just me.

The plot itself was pretty good. The author has a gift for dialogue, and the characters were interesting to read. I was thinking it was a little predictable, but then I realized I had read this one before way back when it was originally posted in 2005.

Technically, the story is fairly sound. The author does use more commas than they should in some cases, but this is an early piece by the author.

Overall, I did enjoy this story. It's good for some light reading with some stroke potential.

This is a delightful story by Tony Stevens, the guy who writes all the baseball stories. I never thought I'd use the word "delightful" about a story, but there's always a first time. Or, as Sally says, "Lovely."

Sally is a 20 year old beauty who hasn't been among the "civilized" for 12 years. Her parents took her to a desert island and raised her and she now returns after both her parents have died.

When a woman is ready and has chosen the one, there's not a hell of a lot he can do about it. Tony does an excellent job of putting this into words and action.

Sally has lived on an isolated island with her parents since she was eight years old. At twenty she sends a short email message to her family's lawyer asking for help. Brian, son of Sally's family lawyer, finds himself the one who must go to the island and rescue her. Sally is a beautiful young woman but Brian, while attracted to her, feels that he has to be careful. He can't take advantage of her inexperience with people. After all, she's been out of touch with society since she was eight. Unfortunately for Brian, it's hard to be a gentleman when Sally isn't all that cooperative and has her own ideas.

We see Sally and Brian developing a relationship then Brian encouraging Sally to meet others because he doesn't want to monopolize her. Sally has her own thoughts about that too, leading to a delightful last few chapters, and an absolutely great last line that will leave you laughing.

While I don't consider this a high stroke factor story, the conversations about sex are fun. It's the plot that makes it a cute story so the plot factor is high. The story is well constructed and I was not sidetracked by technical errors when I read it. Overall, a fun story and definitely worth reading.
