eBook Review for Ice Commander by Roger Frank Selby

By Alana James

I must confess this was virgin territory for me; my first foray into science fiction erotica. After some initial discomfort as I adjusted to the new sensation, I admit it was really quite pleasurable. Of course I can’t comment on how successful the book is in terms of the science fiction, but I will say it was an enjoyable erotic read.

This collection of short stories is essentially one long connected story broken into sections, making it read more like a novella. It is set in outer space, on spaceships and stations, which to my naive eyes felt believable. The plot centred around Carter and his experiences with his female senior officers and a mysterious alien, Laura. The narrative flowed very well, with excellent read-on pull. Once I started reading, I felt compelled to carry on to the end.

The outer space setting lent itself well to some hot erotic action including plenty of spanking and threesomes. There is also low gravity on board the crafts, meaning that some interesting sexual positions are possible. I got a little tired however of women’s breasts floating alluringly upwards and found myself wondering why senior officers wouldn’t invest in some good support bras. That said, the female characters are well-described and varied, and I enjoyed Carter’s subordinate position and the effect it had on their relationships.

If you like sci-fi and erotica, this should be a tasty treat. And if you’re not normally a sci-fi fan, try to go boldly where you’ve never been before – you never know, you might enjoy it.

Ice Commander is published by Xcite as an e-book, and is also available from iTunes and Kindle.
