Telling Tales by Charlotte Stein




Telling Tales puts a very erotic twist in an otherwise very common friends to lovers and unrequited love plot device which definitely puts this in a NSFW novel. Allie, Wade, Cameron and Kitty, four friends from college, part of the now defunct Candy Club, has inherited their old professor's home. After several years of losing touch they now come face to face once again, this time around their once innocent writing club has started taking on a more sensual and erotic turn. Allie has always felt attracted to Wade and time hasn't seemed to diminish that. However, it seem its her very good friend Cameron that pulls on her libido and makes her question what she truly wants. Telling Tales is pure erotica but in the hands of the very talented Charlotte Stein its also a very character driven book. With a very subtle take on domination and submission, Allie's character slowly develops and becomes more layered as the story progresses. Despite being told in the first person point of view, each of the remaining characters has also evolved by the time the book ends. The heat level is definitely scorching, the story engaging and the characters are deep and evolving, a very good read.

Allie has held a brightly burning torch for Wade since college. They were part of a writing group together, and everything about those days with him and their friends Kitty and Cameron fills her with longing. When their former Professor leaves them his rambling mansion in his will, it's a chance for them to reunite. But there's more than friendship bubbling beneath the surface.

As secrets are revealed and relationships rekindled, the stories get dirtier and the stakes get higher. And now Allie's realized that she isn't quite sure who she wants…fun-loving Wade, or quiet, restrained Cameron. Neither have been honest about their feelings, and now they have the chance to act on all of the tales that ignite their most primal desires.
