Helen Thinks: Carla is a 41-year-old lawyer who has worked hard to get where she is but to do so she’s sacrificed everything else - including her sex life. Best friend Janet is a air hostess which has gained her enough sexual escapades to last a lifetime and is why she tries to encourage Carla to let go and have fun. Carla does not think she has too until she meets her new neighbour is both cute and young - and it eventually turns out he’s an escort that prefers his clientele to be elderly ladies. Usually he has a no neighbour clause after a previous experience but Carla is persistent and will not take no for an answer. However, along her sexual discovery, forty one year old Carla learns things about herself that she can’t quite wrap her head around - especially her feelings for said twenty five year old escort, Jake.

After the release of Fifty Shades of Grey, erotic fiction has become as mainstream as your crime and romance fiction. It’s on your top bestseller list and not hidden away in the back anymore and it’s no longer something women whisper about. Many authors have embraced this and DuChamp’s erotica are some of my favourites. Yes, they’re a little vulgar and not for a sensitive audience but they’re well written. The friendship moments between Janet and Carla are witty, fresh and I do actually think DuChamp writes them the appropriate ages which is harder with a heroine over 35 - seriously, how many do you see? It was refreshing to be in the mind of an older character and the cougar aspect of twenty five year old Jake was a perfect touch. The moments between Jake and Carla were hot as well as moving when they had their brief sentimental moments.

There’s not much more I can say about “Want it Bad” without splashing the world spoiler all over. It’s not a fanfiction favourite “porn without plot” but it’s a smutty love story that I read all in one sitting because it was just too good to put down. What’s a real fun fact is that DuChamp is a pseudonym for two authors (J.A. Konrath and Ann Voss Peterson) and if this is what their brains can come up with then I’m in for the ride. DuChamp, you have a massive fan in the reader and I can’t wait to read some more of your works.
