Written as an escape from his loveless marriage, C. Robins crafts a masterpiece of sensual eroticism in his book, Mister’s Miss. This erotic fiction novel tells the story of Mister, a young bachelor who feels unfulfilled in life. After losing a sales competition at work, he takes a sabbatical to recover from his morose emotions. The night before he returns to work, he has an intense sensual dream of a beautiful woman who lustfully awakens his sexual desires. This prompts Mister to write an intimate advertisement in an attempt to find the perfect ‘Miss’ who can fulfill all of his erotic fantasies. Two equally fascinating women, M and S, respond to his advertisement. He begins to engage in written fantasies with both of them via emails. However, Mister also contemplates whether his sexy co-worker, D, could be the woman he’s looking for. Who is Mister’s perfect ‘Miss’? Is it M, S, or D?
What I liked most about this book were the erotic descriptions. They were unique, poetic depictions that conjured up surprisingly sensual imageries while leaving a lot of things to the imagination. These appealed to all of my five senses which evoked tantalizing emotions of lust. Besides people, objects were also erotically described. For example, the cruise ship in Mister’s dream was described as having ‘sensualistic curves that stretched the full length of her 404 feet of chivalrous magnificence’. I really admired the author’s ability to create literary metaphors and infuse them with sexual innuendoes. I also liked that these were eloquently written as opposed to obscene narratives which are typically found in many erotic fiction novels. In my opinion, the writing style alone sets this book apart from the others in its genre.
I also appreciated that the names of the main characters were not revealed. ‘Mister’ and ‘Miss’ were used in place of real names. Letters were also used to refer to characters like M, S, and D who were the three women being pursued by Mister. This definitely added a modicum of mystery to their identities. This also made me feel as if I were given an intimate look at their interconnected lives, but without truly knowing who they were.
The names of places in the book made me laugh because they were very erotically direct. For instance, the name of the cruise ship was Lucid Wet Dream. The café where Mister met his Miss was called Café Puséé which was a hilarious reference to the common name for the female genitalia. These candid names juxtaposed the eloquence of the writing style and added humor. I appreciated this.
There was nothing I disliked about this book. I found it be an exhilarating read. There were a few errors that I stumbled upon, but these were minor things like the absence of hyphens in compound phrases. Its expressive writing style, mysterious characters, and humor prompted me to rate the book 4 out of 4 stars. I think the novel was edited professionally. Mister’s Miss will be enjoyed by adult fans of erotic literature. It’s definitely unsuitable for teen readers because of the sexual content. Although the novel was largely focused on heterosexual erotica, it also contained bisexual descriptions so readers who don’t like this might not be interested in reading it.
