Author Showcase and Review of “Explorations and Further Explorations” – David Russell


Newly divorced and looking for interesting new experiences, Janice takes an art class with live models and the star makes her want more than a coincidental meeting. Art model, Cedric, thinks he knows the lady from somewhere when he sees her again at the pool. Body language says a lot and chance meetings lead to a desire for more. Will Janice ask Cedric over for a private modeling job and will he accept?


Energised by their lovely liberating experience, Janice and Cedric are determined to ‘spread their wings’ and take the world by storm, a two-person conspiracy. They head off physically in different directions, but remain in constant depth communication electronically, ever comparing notes, monitoring each other’s minds and experiences for a depth of mutual understanding. They may meet again fully equipped with a great depth of self-knowledge, and a knowledge of each other’s depth. They negotiate giddy peaks of high finance; Janice even does into ‘dreamscape’, making a pact with the devil. Further delights of sensuality are explored by both, with exotic partners; the depths and shallows of life are all embraced …



(review request submitted by the author for an honest critique) 
Like Cedric’s divorce proceedings with Magda, Explorations and Further Explorations were dull – lifeless. I didn’t see/feel any chemistry between the two of them. Their scenes and times together were just blah. Too bad because the book summaries gave me hope I’d lose myself in their coupling. 
Sorry Mr. Russell but, for me, these books missed the mark. 
Charming covers though.

    My tastes are more directed towards sci-fi and mystery; however, congrats on writing two books which is no small feat.
