Passion Flayed by J.X. Williams
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
High literature it ain’t, but for a ‘60s sleaze book it’s pretty good. Sharp tongued Rita finds that she is only sexually attracted to men that she isn’t married to - not a good thing for her husband Brad, who struggles to save their marriage as Rita piles up the extramarital affairs. Rita’s lovers include a gruff construction boss, a sleazy psychiatrist, and a door-to-door salesman who all find her charms completely captivating, and who Rita fights off, but ultimately finds impossible to resist. The books strengths are the well written dialogue, and it’s weakness the lack of plot, and it’s forehead-slapping conclusion. This is one of Harry Whittington’s “missing 38” sleaze books that he wrote monthly in the mid 1960s.
