Handyman: Courtney's Counters by Shakes Peer2B

Author's Description:
When Hank loses his job in the computer industry, he decides to fall back on the skills his father taught him. This is the story of his first project as a handyman. This is, I hope, the beginning of a new universe starring Hank and the housewives of Emerald Glen.

In "Handyman: Courtney's Counters", we read about Hank, a man who just started as a handyman after being the victim of off-shore IT sourcing. He's hired by Courtney to do some cabinet work, and then she asks to test out his new cabinet. But who tests it?

The sex in the story was fairly good, but the mechanical nature that was used for part of it made it a little hard to picture in one's head. I still have no idea how exactly that cabinet did what it did. Even with that, this has decent stroke appeal. The bondage is definitely light, and while the intercourse is vigorous, it is not violent.

The plot itself is a fairly straight forward "Handyman does the housewife" style, with a few twists and kinks thrown in for good measure. Nothing special, but nothing bad, either. As this is supposed to be the beginning of an open-ended series, I'm sure it will get fleshed out over time and various new stories. As a stand-alone, it works adequitely.

Techicially, the story gets off to a horrible start. The first paragraph contains an awful run-on sentence that had me expecting the whole story to be a disaster. Thankfully, there were few problems after that fact. That first paragraph would have made me bail if I wasn't already familiar with the author's works, and enjoyed some of them.

Overall, a fair start to a potential series of stories. The real promise of this story will have to be proven in the sequels to it for this to be considered good. As it is, it is a little better than average, but not by much.

Get past that first paragraph, and you have a decent read. Hopefully future stories give us more, with the context of this story to build upon.
