Review # 58: Dumpsterotica- How Dirty Are You? by Allie Beck

     Marcia and Joe have been together for 4 years and married for 2; but their relationship, as well as their sex-life, is kind of stale. So when Joe takes Marcia out for dinner, he has no idea what to expect from their romantic date, especially when it makes its way into a grimy, stinky, garbage-filled dumpster behind the restaurant.
     The designation of erotic comedy was right on the nose, (but so was the spaghetti). I was a little frightened of this book upon receiving it; not sure what to expect of a short story with the name "Dumpsterotica". Well, it was definitely down and dirty. There were situations in those ten pages that shocked and appalled me, literally making my skin crawl - and not in a good way. Overall, I thought that it was kind of hilarious; Allie Beck's writing style flows well and her characters are entertaining, but Marcia and Joe's relationship was really depressing. I hear there's another book coming out in this series, might be good for another laugh, however, the subject matter is still seriously grotesque.

Rating: Bounty's Out (3/5)
