Jessica Subject redefines what erotic means with Satin Sheets in Space. It is hot, like scorching, not just steamy. I read the book on my e-reader and at one point; I was even scrolling rhythmically down the page. I was embarrassed when I caught myself.
Satin Sheets in Space is part of Decadent Publishing’s 1 Night Stand series. These are not your average one night stands in any aspect of the word. 1 Night Stand is the name of the mystical Madame Evangeline’s dating service. Somehow, Madame Evangeline is able to find the true heart’s mate for the customers of her exclusive dating service. While she only promises her clients a night to truly remember for one couple after another they end up finding the mate they have always searched for.
Danyka is tall but curvaceous and considers herself unattractive because of her height. To her all the men seem to go for the pretty, petite women. She has never found a man who was truly interested in her, even the few men she dated departed after they got what they wanted from her. Danyka’s employer Josh, and his wife Tamara, were two of Madame Evangeline’s clients and are one of Madame Eve’s success stories. Delighted with their experience and wanting Danyka, who is more like a family member than an employee, to find that same happiness the two arrange a date for her through Madame Evangeline. When Danyka finds out a special date has been planned for her, part of her “restrained the urge to jump up and down and whoop in delight,” while “another part of her cringed.”
Danyka’s date is to meet her at the Kartha Ball, a special costume ball being given that night. Danyka is filled with excitement and goes to the ball accompanied by two of her friends who quickly find eligible bachelors to hook up with for the night. After a couple of hours of waiting she decides her date has either stood her up, or has seen her and gone running in the opposite direction. She catches a glimpse of the stars above her as she leans back, looking through a skylight and relaxes briefly until someone runs into her. When she says something to him, he retorts with, “If you took up less space, I wouldn’t have tripped over you. You’re lucky I don’t sue.” Danyka is overwhelmed with frustration and wishes for a world where women over five-foot-six weren’t looked upon as Amazons. Fed up, her friends already gone off with their dates, she decides to leave, but as she is leaving she hears a sexy voice ask that classic line, “Leaving so soon?” He is her mysterious date for the night, and little does she know it, but her life will never be the same.
If you are a fan of erotica, threesomes and men from outer space, then this should definitely be in your library. Like all 1 Night Stand titles it is a brief, easy read that shakes your world up in unimaginable ways and Jessica Subject is showing that she can both rock her readers’ worlds and give them the happily ever after everyone is secretly longing for.
