tied handsRecently, I featured a book called, Take the Heat: A Criminal Romance Anthology. It’s a multi-author anthology of dark “depraved” stories. Actually, it’s not all that dark, at least to my way of thinking, but some of it is kind of depraved (this judgement is very much subjective and your thoughts might be utterly different). It’s not full of romance or happy ever afters.

However, within the pages is a gem of a story called, “Slipknot.” It’s by my friend Sheri Savill, and even if she wasn’t my friend, I would still find her story engaging, dirty, and utterly fun. The story is about 3000 words long, so I don’t want to give away its secrets, but I will say, it was worth buying the whole book just to get that one gem. And I did buy it; this is not an ARC-based opinion.

What is a slipknot? According to Merriam-Webster’s Unabridged Dictionary, it’s “a knot that slips along the rope or line around which it is made.” And Sheri’s story is slippery, indeed. There are some very sexy situations involving multiple partners, and there’s a twist that you can almost see coming, but it’s still very satisfying when things burst open. It gives you a lovely ah-ha moment.

Cover: Take the HeatI highly recommend this story, and for $2.99, you get the whole book, which is almost certain to have more in it that you’ll like.

  1. Yup, the line about the ‘one gem’ got me and now I have to see more about this slippery slipknot. Nice review Trish ☺

  2. Great review, Trish. Sheri is an amazing writer. I’ll have to check out A Criminal Romance Anthology. Thanks for the recommendation.

  3. Aw Patricia, you’re the real deal. THANK YOU so much. For everything. I’m kind of stunned here. Not sure what I’ll do next though. Probably just my dumb crazy messy whatever over on my own blog and that’s all. I’ll email ya. Thank you again, though, for this, and everything.

I love to read your comments. Please don't be shy.
