Review: Welcome to Paradise by Glenn Rolfe

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Readers looking for some Christmas cheer free of saccharine sweetness or holiday frivolity might want to give this one a go. WELCOME TO PARADISE is a XXX-Mas treat chock full of sex and violence stretching across its brief page count.

Originally published in Dec. 2016 for The Gal in the Blue Mask blog, Rolfe gives his story the stand-alone treatment with this new digital edition. Right from the outset, Rolfe gets his groove on with some wonderful descriptions to set the scene, giving us a brightly vivid and crystal-clear image of Veronica, a punk rock femme fatale, and her killing jar of a room at The Lucky Lounge motel.

Veronica is in New Jersey to celebrate Christmas the best way she knows how - enjoy the snow, pick up a dude, and then fuck and kill the ever loving shit out of him. Ho ho ho!

WELCOME TO PARADISE is a fun and nasty read, and a rapid fire shot of alt-seasons greetings.
