I guess there’s truth in the title…
I’ve read Dead Men Don’t Wash by Alley Blue. It’s one of those stories I’ve seen swish by in my feed now and then, and I guess the title stuck with me. The reason I read it now is that I downloaded Still Waters by Alex Gabriel. Goodreads keep recommending to me so I thought I just have to read it, but when I downloaded it I tried to remember what that other book with water I’ve meant to read was LOL.
Dead Men Don’t Wash is one of the craziest stories I’ve read. We have tentacles, vampires, demons, Sherlock Holmes, and soap made of a dead man. I’m glad I didn’t read any reviews before reading it. If I had I probably would’ve skipped it.
I’m not big menage. To each their own is my motto in life, but I tend to stay away from menage books, two pairs of limbs are quite enough to keep track of…and here we have tentacles as well. But, this story is so crazy Ms Blue could’ve thrown in as many people as she’d wanted to and I still would’ve read it.
Don’t read this if you’re looking for something serious or touching, but if you’re in the mood for a few laughs and in my case a little cringing and some staring at the screen with bulging eyes, then go ahead.
I didn’t download it, I don’t think it’s available in the shops, but it’s up on Alley Blue’s website.
I’m putting this in my shifter collection. To see what other shifter stories I’ve read, click here.
