A young British man has sexual exploits at every turn in this narrative, reported on the back cover to be a mix of true and fictional events.

Protagonist Liam is a young man who still lives at home with his parents while working for the postal service. Women of diverse ages come on to him from the instant they meet and agreeably have sex. His most intimate and explicit physical encounters occur with a 40-year old divorcee and a young waitress with an angry ex-husband, the latter of which leads to an unfortunate end.

Unfortunately, this book is poorly executed throughout. It has little, if any, plot, and there are no chapter divisions and scant paragraph breaks. The writing contains misspellings, poor English and even some common texting abbreviations (“cu soon”). Sentence structure is nil. Rather, the author writes in extreme run-on sentences—sometimes a page long—that have little or no punctuation and can include a change of speakers within them.

Liam’s shagging with his impressively large member gets the most attention in the story. For example: “ . . . ‘fuck me Liam with that monster between your legs [sic] he turned her around spreading her legs [sic] he entered her love tunnel pushing his length deep inside her [sic] she winced ‘do it Liam shoot your load right up me’. . .”

In between such explicit sex scenes, the author discusses minutiae such as enjoying his mum’s cooking, drinking sweet tea, helping clean windows and drapes, and taking care of daily toiletry issues—the details of which fail to advance the story in any manner.

Overall, even readers seeking sexual titillation will struggle to persevere through this problematic narrative.
