Book Description:

Writer Jacob Hastings is uninspired by his latest assignment: a museum full of hideous rocking horses. But his socks are rocked by Normandie Stephens, a mischievous astronomer who can match his dry wit, quip for quip, and his sexual appetite, frolic for frolic, with energy to spare.

Thanks to Jacob's public relations and the machinations of a feisty and frisky mentor named Kate, an impasse in Normandie's career promises to blossom into either glory or disaster - with enigmatic photographer Susan and obtuse clubber Brandon along for the wild rocking-horse ride. Between farcical talk show appearances, sensuous threesomes, horny little quickies, sex-drenched romantic getaways, and close calls with utter embarrassment, the pace never lets up in this smart erotic romp.

Jeremy Edwards never disappoints. His erotic stories are always sincere, sensual and highly erotic in an everyday kind of way. Edwards manages to take mundane scenarios and turn them into highly erotic romps that leap from the page and into your imagination.

I’ve read many of his stories in anthologies, collections, and online- and I am thrilled to have the chance to read his first full length book.

Witty, humorous, and erotically romantic it is nice to see erotica written from a male perspective. His work is often sweet and sexy with a dash of kink and wildness thrown in. Not the normal raunch men are known for and definitely not the sort of story you get from many of the female erotica authors either. It is a flavor all its own and I am glad to see a full length story from him after reading so many of his shorts.

The book is lighthearted and sexy, it doesn’t take itself too seriously and that’s a great thing. Edwards isn’t writing about paranormal creatures, super heroes, or even strippers and porn stars- his writing is full of real people with normal lives- and he turns these people and stories into sexy romps you can’t get enough of. He is an incredible storyteller that can take you on erotic journeys you’ve never even thought to imagine.

In Rock My Socks Off Edwards puts two intelligent, witty, and humorous academics together and throws them into a wild sexual relationship that neither was expecting. The results are a humorous and sexy frolic that you won’t want to put down. You’ll never look at “stuffy” academic types or rocking horses the same again.

In his bio author Jeremy Edwards states his greatest goal in life is to be “sexy and witty” at the same moment. I think he managed that with this book. I don’t know about the flattering lighting, that will probably come later. Hopefully along with more books from Edwards.
