About the book:

      Amanda accepts an invite by the prestigious Institute for Women’s Sexual Satisfaction. Volunteering for their study means she must divulge her deepest, naughtiest fantasies and then act on them. But one wicked fantasy involves watching her boyfriend do something so intimate, so forbidden that she’s afraid he will refuse and may even break off their relationship.
      Jared can’t believe his gorgeous girlfriend wants to see another woman take his anal virginity. But he wants to make her wildest fantasies come true, and maybe finally engage in some secret fantasies of his own…
      Warning: This story contains a loving couple indulging in some very steamy fantasies including F/F kissing and light touching along with a deliciously naughty F/M/F pegging scene.

What B is talking about:

      What would it be like to make your hottest sexual fantasy come true in a safe environment, with no risks, and without hurting anyone? What if, even better, that fantasy was part of an experiment that would benefit women everywhere? Welcome to the Institute for Women’s Sexual Satisfaction, or the IWSS, for short.
      The IWSS is an interesting home for these fantasies, mostly because its objective is so basic: to help a significant portion of the female population achieve sexual fulfillment through the exploration of individual fantasies. I think it’s much like the benefit the genre as a whole has the potential to provide, depending on the reader’s response.
      Amanda and Jared are already devoted to one another, but she wants to push the edges of Jared’s comfort zone to include one particular fantasy she can’t let go of. He’s everything she could possibly want in a man, and definitely a “keeper,” but she’s convinced there’s room in their sexual relationship for more. Although, technically, For Your Eyes Only is about Amanda’s fantasy, both she and Jared get what they want from the endeavor.
      The enactment of the fantasy itself is brief but extremely steamy, and Amanda ends up pushing her own boundaries, as well as putting Jared’s to the test. Ms. Mayburn doesn’t try to make the story more complicated than the exploration of a fantasy, leaving the reader free to simply “observe” and enjoy. The main characters’ consideration of one another as they surrender themselves to the pleasure of the moment lends an uncomplicated sexiness to the entire story.
      For Your Eyes Only is a quick, naughty, fun read. While their time at the Institute is spent in consensual, boundary-pushing enjoyment, the results of their experience will ultimately be used to help all women achieve true sexual pleasure. This series has the potential to explore an assortment of fantasies, and I’m very curious to see what direction Ms. Mayburn might decide to follow next.

  1. Hi B! I’m so glad you liked it. 😀 I plan on doing one of these books a month, and the second one(Captive Fantasy) is already out. My goal with this series is to take fantasies and make them not only enjoyable to read, but to also hopefully encourage the reader to open a dialog with their lover about their fantasies. So thank you for giving Tales from the IWSS a chance and I hope I managed to make you blush at least once. 😉

    Thank you so much for allowing me to read it! I’m really happy that there will be more of these stories to follow! I was hoping there would be. I think it’s a fantastic way to explore all the possibilities there are for pleasure between partners, and hopefully get those fantasies out in the open, where they need to be. It’s a great idea, and I wish you the best with them all!
