Review of Relieving Zoe's Virtue by Eve Edwards
Relieving Zoe's Virtue - Decadent Publishing

Blurb: After Zoe Cohen catches her boyfriend with another woman, she decides losing her virginity is just the solution to shake up her straight-laced life as librarian. Tired of waiting for Mr. Right, she’ll settle for Mr. Do Me Right Now.

To achieve this end, she uses the exclusive dating service, 1NightStand, to set up a rendezvous, but never expects her destination to take her to the fey Otherworld. Once she meets her match, Sinnon, a wickedly seductive Leanan Sidhe, she knows she’s in for an explosive experience. With a name and body for sin, he tempts her like no other. His touch commands her total surrender. But this night is on her terms, and the happy ending he desires may come at too high a price.

Zoe may lose her virginity, but will she forfeit her heart to Sinnon in the process?

My Opinion: I'm not usually a lover of short stories, but I'll give anything a try once.   

This just happened to be my first 1NS story.  And I can say with surety, it will not be last.  While it was short, I really enjoyed the depth of the characters, storyline, and the world the author created.  Zoe and Sinnon are explosive together.  Definitely a very sensual, emotional pair.   I would have loved for the story to be longer only because I enjoyed what I read so much.  Alas, it is what it is.  I knew it was meant to be a short story before going in.  So that didn't bother me in the slightest.

The story was well written and extremely humorous in some places.  Some of the heroine's thoughts actually cracked me up.  The author crafted an amazing adventure for Zoe in a such a short span of time.  I was thoroughly impressed with the amount of detail and emotion Ms. Edwards managed to relay in a limited amount of pages.

I'm all about some outstanding Fae hotness now.  If only I could get one to whisk me away for some hot and heavy.

By the way, I just have to say that guy on the cover makes me want to reach out and touch someone.

All in all, Relieving Zoe's Virtue is a short sensual, delightful read you should absolutely check out.
