Hot Line by Alison Grey


Lonely psychologist, Linda, is a workaholic. She has no friends so she spends the majority of her time with her patients.

Mature student, Christina pays her way through school by running a phone sex line. Her working name is Chantel.

When Christina answers her sex line one night, it’s Linda on the line. She isn’t interested in phone sex, but she has a proposition for Christina. If Christina accepts, both their lives could change forever.

A very nicely written short novella, translated from German. The translation is so well done, I would never have known if I hadn’t been made aware.

Here are two women from very different backgrounds. Women who if they’d met under different circumstances may well have never given each other the time of day.

Both Christina and Linda’s characters are multidimensional and well formed. There is a lot of detail packed into this short book. A lot of the actual story is based on the characters actual thoughts. I think this is how so much has been packed in to such a short book. It’s easier to read the characters thoughts than to have the story played out between the characters. Having said that, there is plenty of actual character action. Both Christina and Linda interact well together and the story is hot and erotic.

I look forward to reading more from Alison Grey soon.

  1. This sounds like one I might enjoy. Thanks for flagging it up. I don't mind short books if there is some character development involved!
