An ENE Review of the novel
Ravished: The Trials and Tribulations of Goldilocks

by Chaz Thompson


Reviewed by JZ Sharpe

As a kid, I loved a good fairy tale, and it seems that this is a taste I can't outgrow. So when I was asked to step in as a guest reviewer and weigh in on this erotic retelling of Goldilocks and the Three Bears, I was happy to do so. I was also curious as to how such a retelling might turn out - would it be too cold, too hot, or just right?
Ravished is the tale of Wilona, an ambitious young woman who loves sex and wants to get out of the boring town where she grew up. Alas, going off to seek her fame and fortune in London is easier said than done, thanks to the isolation of the village and a bunch of evil bears who are lurking at the edge of town. Anyone who would be so foolish as to want to leave is almost sure to be eaten by those bears! She'd be much better off to stay put and go through with the marriage that has been arranged by her father (at least, this is what everyone else thinks). But Wilona is far too spunky (not to mention horny), and her ambitions soon lead her out of Waineswick and on to adventures that never seem to stop, adventures that will keep the reader amused right to the very last page. I will say that about three-quarters of the way into the novel, the story takes a turn into mysterious imagery that left this reader somewhat baffled. But worry not - the confusion does not last long. Best of all, the sex scenes in Ravished are unique, well-written and highly erotic, and fit perfectly into the plot, too, acting as a showcase for the charmingly randy Wilona and a cast of supporting characters you won't forget.
But what about the bears? Well, that would be telling too much; you'll just have to read the book to find out. Suffice it to say that Ravished is, in all its many ways, just right.
