Book Review: 'The Orgasm Project' by Doris O’Connor


The first thing that caught my attention about The Orgasm Project was its name. With a title like that I was compelled to find out more.
I didn’t really look at the length previously and was surprised to find that this was a very short story. Though in some cases such a thing can be disastrous, I was happy to discover that Ms. O’Connor didn’t disappoint for she is able to develop the concept of the project in just a few masterful strokes.
Though not as hot as other titles by the author, the story was still sexually arousing and sweet at the same time. Ms. O’Connor doesn’t waste any time and delivers a tale that is short and to the point and because of this kept me hooked from beginning to end (it took me a little less than an hour to read).
While I found Ana sweet and agreeable, her mates, Jake and Carter, were drool worthy. Intense, very good looking and understanding, the boys knew just how to treat a girl that needed help in the bed (and heart) department. A character I particularly liked (perhaps because of her direct and unabashed nature; she is, after all, the reason The Orgasm Project begins in the first place), was Maria. The poor woman now has to suffer her best friend and brothers being together while she’s all alone. I really hope she gets her own story in the future.
Finally, it is important to mention that even though the length of the story doesn’t permit too much development, the author still manages to introduce a few surprising points. It is not all obvious in this tale.
In the end, The Orgasm Project was a satisfying read that delivers passion and romance in just a few pages.
