My Last Dark Day is a short naughty story that will require some suspension of disbelief in order to get to the naughty parts.
The story is simple: our nameless heroine tends to feel depressed over a long list of dates that range from her late father's birthday to the day an ex-boyfriend shot himself after calling her to say goodbye. However, she gets to know a happy couple, whose husband is apparently psychic or something, and the husband takes it upon himself to shag the heroine out of her blues, in front of the approving wife, on the most recent "dark day" of our heroine. Our heroine, needless to say, no longer feels so blue since she now has a surefire way to get happy.
I suppose in a different story I would feel disturbed by the man who easily collects pliable women to be added to his harem. Since this is a no-nonsense erotic romp however, the whole thing works very well and I'm just glad that the guy is so willing to spread the love around, what with him being so good with his various body parts and all.
My Last Dark Day, being short and straight to the point, is what it is. I am not going to touch about characterization and romance because it is not that kind of story. The only thing I am concerned with, therefore, is that it works for me. That is more than enough for me.
