You Can Leave Your Mask On by P. Andrews

20 Jul



Grasshopper is having a rough night.

Grasshopper is a superhero who, in case you haven’t guessed it, can leap high into the air to land on the tops of buildings and run at incredible speeds. She loves the feel of the air caressing her skin, loves the feel of power, the arousal.

Having the powers of a grasshopper can be very cool. Able to leap, to jump, to soar through the air; it was all in a days work to keep her city safe.

After having been caught spying on a couple having incredible sex, she’s all revved up with no place to go. Scouring the night, she looks for something, or someone, to take away her itch.

Grasshopper gets her wish when she witnesses a large explosion. As she watches, she sees bolts of electricity flickering through the air. She knows at once that the villain is Circuit-Breaker.

Hopping down in front of the destroyed building, she finds Circuit-Breaker stealing a vase. Planning to take him down and take him in, Grasshopper has no idea that she is about to have the most incredible sex of her life….

Though short, You Can Keep Your Mask On packs one hell of a punch. It’s light, funny and flat out hilarious. It also has some of the most inventive sex I have ever had the pleasure of reading.

You might think at first that an erotic encounter between superhero’s is cause for derisive laughter. But that is not the case here. Though the superhero and the villain both wear clingy tight outfits, these are not the masked crusaders of years gone by.

Grasshopper is a superhero to rival the X Men. And, she’s a hell of a lot sexier. What made You Can Keep Your Mask On so enjoyable was that, even though you’re reading about superhero’s and evil villains, all the action felt real.

P. Andres had injected his story with so much energy, so much vibrancy that the characters leap off the page. You can almost imagine that Grasshopper is protecting your city, your home.

Writing a erotic romance around superhero’s could have been tacky, disastrous and just plain wrong. But P. Andrews pulls it off with panache and aplomb. Not only are the hero and villain believable, the sex just crackles off the page. You aren’t just reading the story, you’re there.

I can only hope that P. Andrews revisits Grasshopper in another tale (so we can learn how she got her powers perhaps?) but until then I will have to read You Can Keep Your Mask On for a fifth time.

It’s fun, fantastic writing with a touch of humor and incredible sex. It’s also one of the most enjoyable erotic romances I’ve read in ages. If you’re looking for a hot time, why not try You Can Keep Your Mask On?

You might just with that you could be a superhero too.

    Kinda at a loss for words right now, so I’ll just say that I’m about to turn in final edits on Grasshopper’s second WICKED – a Ménage for Naughty November 😉

    Thanks for my first (I think!) review!
