Girls' Dormitory by Orrie Hitt
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
More thoughtful than sleazy, Girls Dormitory tells the story of rich college girl Peggy, her money hungry roommate and lover Helen, who is also a prostitute, and horny Jerry the pimp and dormitory handy man who makes time with several of the rooming guests possibly impregnating one of them. The writer really stirred the pot with multiple plot lines and the female character's shifting sexuality, however the pacing is strong and the story kept my interest. Sex is only implied and never described, frequently using the chapter ending device "Show me you love me." And (s)he did.
I'm going to have to find a copy of this one. It sounds very much like Hitt's novel WARPED DESIRES, published two years later by Beacon under his Kay Addams pseudonym, is a pretty blatant rewrite of it.ReplyDelete
I've seen some pretty good examples of Hitt reusing plots or pieces of plots in the dozen or so books that I've read by him. Not necessarily a bad thing. I've been eyeing that Warped Desire / The Strangest Sin book from Stark House for a while now.ReplyDelete
