Lysistrata Cove by Dena Hankins #mf #review #trans @DenaWrites @boldstrokebooks


Jack Azevedo captains his charter sailboat in the Caribbean. Life can’t get any better, especially once he discovers a mysterious uncharted island with a sugar-sand cove for his passengers to enjoy and an intriguing, if angry, inhabitant.

Superstar Eve La Sirena has an illicit plan to restore creative freedom to musicians worldwide…if she can keep an ocean between her public and her secrets. Jack’s arrival exposes her island retreat and jeopardizes years of work, but his sweet generosity whets her cruel appetites.

As a transmasculine gender explorer and BDSM bottom, Jack’s used to flouting convention, not the law. When Eve’s clandestine project draws three kinds of cops, everything he has is endangered. Will the maelstrom of emotion strip the civilized veneer from his piratical heart?addtogoodreads_zps55cd15da14April's Showering Words

This book has graphic F/F & F/F/M Transgender sex scenes and sexual contact.

It also covers a lot of situations where the laws are broken.  This story starts out slow yet builds as you go.  The chemistry between the main characters is sharp and well expressed.

I’m still not sure how I feel about this book.  I really enjoyed it for the most part. The give and take between characters was lively and entertaining.  Just not sure how believable the ending is.  There are some scenes that are just a little to perfect to be real.  And things that would never have worked went through just like clockwork.

So some will love it, I however think it went just a little to far.  Still was entertaining for the most part.
