Consult My Pussy Out Now!


There’s more to Alex King than meets the eye. What is this arrogant hunk hiding and will Raina find out?

When Raina’s boss hires a consultant named Alex King, a much sought after financial advisor, she finds herself resisting more than professional competition. The last thing Raina needs is a consultant to tell her is how to do her job. What she doesn’t count on is Alex’s persistence. Alex might be as sexy as hell, and Raina is determined to fight temptation, but her pesky salacious thoughts are no match even for a control freak. She longs to crack the consultant’s impeccable facade. Can Raina remain aloof? Or will she acquiesce to the heated advances of Alex King? In what could be the ultimate office hook up Raina discovers what you see isn’t necessarily what you get-it’s actually better.
Not accustomed to being immobilized in the presence of just anyone, I met this Alex King’s outstretched hand, shocked when his firm grasp electrified me up to my armpits. I hadn’t missed how his narrow waist led to…damn, any hot-blooded woman couldn’t fail to notice his porn star-sized package, if she was in the market for it. Which I wasn’t. It had been years since I had been attracted to a man. Now, masculinity, that’s another thing. It’s true that I liked my women butch, and my pussy came alive when they packed, but I hadn’t considered a cis-gendered man since college. Who was this man? Where had he come from to exude such blatant confidence, thus undermining my own? Instead of sporting a professional hairstyle, his longish, wavy hair, gelled to a lustrous sheen, was reason enough to discount his credibility. How could I take a man seriously when he looked so damn sexy in a suit? Not that I was prone to falling for stereotypes, but his pretty-boy smile, emphasis on pretty, bold swagger and charisma tainted my first impression anyway.

After class I followed Kristen out of the classroom and all but offered to carry her books while trying to think of something witty to say. Humor an older woman: want to come over to my place and see my DVD collection? I stifled a chuckle and asked instead, “Where are you headed?”
“I’m going to grab some food. Want to celebrate?”
“Sure.” I didn’t have to look at my schedule to know I had a two-hour break before my next class. “I’m Stacey, by the way.” I quickly put out my hand; she lingered over our greeting until I worried my palms would melt.
“You said.”
“Right.” My face heated up.
“You’re quite knowledgeable about women, Stacey Tanner.”
“And not just authors.” I became transfixed on the delicious hint of a smile playing at her lips. “I’ve been around.”
“What’s your major?” she asked.
“I’m not sure yet,” and I wasn’t, up until then, “but either Women’s Studies with a minor in psychology or the other way around. You?”
“I see, not only pretty, but bright as well.”
“I find intellect very sexy. What about you?” She moved up closer, nudging my arm with her shoulder and giving off a strong current. If I didn’t want to be led to temptation, I’d have some fight. As it was, she had me at ‘you’re quite knowledgeable.’
We strolled out of the building and into the sunshine. The center of campus was teaming with an infectious vibrancy; it was hard not to get caught up in the excitement. She sure was perky, her sing-song voice with emphasis on the end of her sentences and the spring in her step were contagious too. She wasn’t shy. I enjoyed the carefree flow of her conversation as though we had known each other more than the length of one class and a few minutes and were destined to be great friends.

4/5 Star Rating


In a sequel to Does the Butch Come with the Recipe, softball captain, Cyndy Kaplan and her girlfriend, Tristan Rizzo, are back for a whole new adventure with much higher stakes. After Tristan’s prediction comes true and the Butch Cookbook earns enough money to subsidize a trip to Ft. Lauderdale for the whole team to attend the playoffs, she suggests another getaway, only without the softball league. Cyndy agrees to pop her Provincetown cherry in order to commemorate the 25th Annual Women’s Week. They end up renting a fantastic house in the fun-filled, estrogen-fest, with Tristan’s twin sister and her girlfriend to partake in the festivities. Cyndy has no idea what to expect, but Tristan is certain she’ll have Cyndy begging to come back for more.


Cyndy Kaplan, despite being disappointed numerous times and vowing off relationships, has become entranced by the stunning Tristan Rizzo. They are a pairing of opposites, with butch Cyndy’s submissive tendencies just the right match for femme yet dominant Tristan. When the women go on vacation together things get a bit kinkier than either may have initially intended, but it helps to prove just how perfect they are for one another.

The Ties That Bind is an enjoyable short story about a relationship on the precipice of becoming much more serious. The women are fun and the story hits an intensely erotic peak near the end. The story begins as sweet and innocent with fade-to-black moments and chaste mentions of intimacy, but it serves to build the sexual tension to the overwhelming and explosive climax. I thoroughly enjoyed their interactions and the roles fit them well. Cyndy is well developed as the story is from her point of view, and underlying the playing around is a thread of hesitancy on Cyndy’s part to fully embrace being in love and completely happy. One of my favorite lines from the story comes at the very beginning, “Too bad love was scary—even for the professed bravest butch in all the land.”

What didn’t work quite as well for me is the inclusion of Tristan’s twin sister Kristen and female friend Michael. It was a distraction from the couple I cared about and though it did enhance the eroticism slightly, it was unexpected, and how they become integrated into a certain part of the story was not completely believable. I was much more connected to Cyndy and Tristan, and moving away from them, even for short moments, didn’t work for me.

The story is well written and I connected to the characters of Cyndy and Tristan immediately. The story is quite an enjoyable read, with a healthy mix of sweetly romantic and downright naughty and steamy. Even though some secondary characters didn’t work for me, overall I enjoyed reading the story and will be on the lookout for more from this author.

Another Review of The Ties That Bind

Click on Coffee Time site logo for full reviewreview-jpg1thtiesthatbind_med1

The Ties That Bind is a wonderful sexy story with the spice of a BDSM lifestyle. Tristan and Cyndy were two women who had hidden their true nature from each other. With the help of some friends they come fully out of the closet into each other’s arms. I found the story to be touching as well as exciting and was never disappointed. Cheri Crystal writes a story that is thrilling to read.

Tag Line:

What could be more fun than being surrounded by a bunch of fun-loving lesbians in Provincetown, Massachusetts? Tristan convinces Cyndy to attend her first Women’s Week during the 25th Annual celebration and shows her another side of desire. With something for everyone, “The Ties That Bind” is for fans of love, lust, trust and some fun with bondage.


In a sequel to Does the Butch Come with the Recipe, softball captain, Cyndy Kaplan and her girlfriend, Tristan Rizzo, are back for a whole new adventure with much higher stakes. After Tristan’s prediction comes true and the Butch Cookbook earns enough money to subsidize a trip to Ft. Lauderdale for the whole team to attend the playoffs, she suggests another getaway, only without the softball league. Cyndy agrees to pop her Provincetown cherry in order to commemorate the twenty-fifth Annual Women’s Week.

“Oh, my God! Can you believe this place?”

Bondage gear, restraints, fetish wear, and kinky sex toys, hung from the steel wall along with wrist and ankle shackles, and a red-cloaked rectangular piece of furniture by the wall rack. There was a four-poster bed, a Captain’s chair with the arms removed, a folding massage table, chains, whips and every imaginable sexual gadget available, including a swing. Cyndy couldn’t wrap her mind around this treasure trove of adult entertainment any more than Tristan apparently could. Nor could she fathom the dichotomous décor between this dark dungeon and the rest of the light, airy house. “More like shocked beyond belief,” she murmured, more to herself than to her cohort in crime.

“Why, shocked? I know you’re quite at home in this environment,” Tristan stated with her hands planted firmly on her hips.

“How would you know that?”

Tristan began rummaging at the foot of a bed in a chest that resembled a buried treasure of playwear until she’d settled on just the right outfit. “Because I’ve spotted you in some pretty raunchy places.”

Cyndy couldn’t imagine where her girlfriend had gone and who this imposter before her was in her stead. Her mouth may as well have been sealed shut, for she couldn’t utter a peep. Moisture poured out of her pussy, and had she been cognizant, she’d have worried about dehydration. She had turned her back on this scene long ago, but somehow, Tristan had lit the torch as easily as throwing a match into a gallon of gasoline. Only this time, she thought she trusted her captor. But why should she? There were two choices. Stay put and let Tristan have her own way, or run as fast as her legs could go.

Tristan’s sugared tone interrupted her reverie. “Get undressed and put this on,” she instructed and handed Cyndy a most unusual hospital gown. It was comically open in the front and back, which helped relieve some of the tension.

“Don’t smile, if you know what’s good for you.”

Cyndy formed a lopsided frown at best and donned the gown. She marveled at how easy it was to get back into bondage, although from a totally new angle. Wondering about when and where Tristan had seen her in action was put on the back burner. Maybe afterwards she’d ponder. She had a wanton pussy and a gloriously hot femme to satisfy.
