Drop Dead Gorgeous - by Donald Allen Kirch - A nice blend of sex, horror, and genetic engineering
Drop Dead Gorgeous is a delightfully wicked tale of revenge. Mind you, this is a very sexual story and could easily be considered erotica, but there is also a heavy dose of horror.
Ray and his girl, Tammy, have been having a rocky period in their relationship, so when he goes to Diamond Jane's after work and doesn't come home, she just packs up and leaves after a few days.
Meanwhile, what's happening to Ray is about as strange as it gets. Kidnapped, but held captive by a woman who is Drop Dead Gorgeous. Her name is Eve and her story is a doozie.
Eve's tale is doled out in bits and pieces to Ray as he remains hostage.and finds himself falling in love with the person holding him captive. That in itself can lead to deadly consequences.
To tell more would just give away too much. I will say this book was at times a bit crass with an an overabundance of sex some might even consider vulgar. Drop Dead Gorgeous is certainly an original story and given daily advances in genetic engineering, it's easy to see how this could actually happen one day.
Recommended with the aforementioned warning for graphic sex scenes.
Drop Dead Gorgeous is available from Double Dragon Publishing in both paperback and e-book formats.
