Review, Infidelities by Kat Quickly


Title: Infidelities (A Collection of Seven Short Fictions)
Author: Kat Quickly
Published: 2011 House Of Erotica
Format: Ebook received for review

Infidelities is a collection of 7 short stories about relationships. The spotlight is on love, lust and sex, but mostly desire. What happens when you look outside your main relationship? Do you just look or do you act, unable to remove dangerous illicit thoughts from your mind? Should you give into your desires, ignoring the consequences of your actions, for you and for those you claim to love? Can a marriage survive infidelity? Read the 7 stories herein and see what happens when seemingly respectable women, those with children and good jobs, living quietly in their lovely houses give into their desires. It’s not only the heat of the tropical settings, it is the heat of their passions that will inflame your own senses.


I think that the blurb really sums of the main part of this book.  Seven stories, all about – you guessed it, infidelity.   A lot of these stories follow the same formula: love or lust gone unanswered for a very long time, then opportunity arises, then the pair parts ways.  Honestly, most of the stories went too quickly for my liking.  There wasn’t much chance to build up and identify with the characters. 

If you are looking for a book with a very high heat level, I wouldn’t choose this one.  While this book is classified as erotica, for my own tastes the intimate scenes were relatively short and not very detailed.  The stories seemed to all have a “fantasy location” for doing the deed: the office, a bathroom at a party, outdoors in a parking lot. 

If you are looking for a “quickie” type book, I think Infidelities would fit the bill.  Some of the stories I was able to read in a matter of minutes.  And like I said, it definitely has the whole cheating aspect.  I thought that wouldn’t bother me so much, I was looking forward to a good and naughty read. I finished this book a bit unfulfilled, but I think it was because I was expecting something different.

  1. I'm really not into "Infidelity" as a subject matter much so I think I'll pass on this book if there isn't a chance to really connect with the characters. Thanks for the review.

    1. Me neither actually, but I've been trying to go outside my comfort zone with reading. In most cases I'm finding these new books I'd normally not have read that are fabulous. In this case I was still kind of angered that these people were cheating in the first place.

  2. I echo Maria's thoughts, thanks for reading it for us so we don't have to.

  3. If you want a more satisfying read with erotica and characters you can connect to you could try Kat's other book - The Awakening. Here's the blurb - see what you think of this one.

    What if you were the one who could do something about Global Warming? Would you believe the ramblings of a strange but handsome older man, and accept your destiny as the immortal daughter of Ursula the Warrior Goddess, protector of the Great Ice, and save the planet?

    This is Carmen Whyte’s destiny: of which she is oblivious until she meets Victor Bernhard, enigmatic owner of Great Blizzard Publishing Enterprises. Once Victor takes Carmen’s hand she senses a powerful connection that she spends much of the novel resisting. After all she is engaged to Andrew Adams: the most desirable bachelor in New York. Victor must bring Carmen to accept her fate; re-awaken the Half-lings, immortal half men-half bear/wolf, shape shifters like Victor, and restore the Great Ice.

    Carmen must accept her destiny willingly; expediently. Evil forces are gathering. The most dangerous threat is Andrew’s father, Will, powerful Senator & industrialist. Will’s initial approach is through Andrew. But as Victor’s influence grows, Will’s sense of urgency spurs him to drastic action. Will knows that Carmen can only be disempowered through marrying a mortal and bearing his children.

    Thus a battle is waged – a battle Carmen is reluctant to join, despite Victor’s warnings. Her true powers of insight and healing are slowly emerging. Finally the truth of Carmen’s birth is revealed, she sees Andrew’s true heart and goes to Victor. In a dangerous final confrontation between good and evil Carmen and Victor defeat Will and Andrew. Andrew is humiliated, now Carmen’s sworn enemy.

    I'd be interested in your thoughts.
    Cheers
