Playing Doctor, a collection of three erotic tales centered around medical professionals.
The first, The Intern, is the story of an older woman, having just gone through a painful divorce, and a the young male intern who re-awakens in her desire and her own confidence in her sexuality.
The second, My Doctor, My Husband, and Me is the story of Valerie. A patient whose fantasies about her handsome doctor come to life with permission and participation of her loving husband.
The third, Seize the Doctor, is the story of Nikki, a young woman who after being cheated on by her boyfriend meets the her new man at a bar. Leary at first, still reeling from her breakup and some bad advice by her friends, Nikki is not sure she is ready to commit to her new Doctor lover.
These three tales are well written romance/erotica with the central theme of sex and love with a doctor. What Allure does well here is though they are all tied to a central theme, each story is very different. The first is a tale of redemption and pain. A hurt and betrayed older woman whose only outlet in life is her work. She is re-awaken by the desire of a younger man and in doing so, learns to see herself anew. The second one is just fun. Sexual experimentation between a threesome that come to care for one another as much as desire each other. The third is about trust and love after a break-up.
Allure makes each of these situations plausible and doesnt hold back at all on the heat. Though in the first story it took a long time to get to that part. Once there, she explored it with wild abandon.
A good soft erotic treat for those who appreciate romance with their erotica.
