Don’t let the lack of reviews and the low price of this book fool you. I downloaded it on a whim to have something for my wife and me to listen to while traveling on a recent trip. We like to listen to erotic type stories while traveling, however, most are so badly written, lack a story, unrealistic, predictable, juvenile, etc. they are painful to listen to.
This book was a pleasant surprise! I would put it in the same general quality category with “A Good Student” by Elliot Mabeuse (except the narrator doesn’t sound like a dirty old man, this is well narrated), which has hundreds of good reviews, and I personally liked very much. I felt the story what not too unrealistic and it was written as a story with a plot that could even continue into sequels (might be nice to see where couple goes from there) and not just cheap erotica, poorly written and only focus on the erotic part and not the story and writing.
It was also nice to have a story that did not include infidelity, multiple participants, gay or incest, extreme kink, etc. Not that I’m opposed to those themes, it was unique to have a book that focused on one theme, without feeling the need to sensationalizing into other venues to attract or keep a reader.
The writer gave us a good erotic book in what evidently (by the number of bad books/attempts there are) seems to be a very difficult category to write and deliver a quality product.

Fantasy world and real life...what a combination!
Where does Roughing It rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Compared to other erotica, this is a good listen. I like the fantasy world created by the characters to help move their night together along.
What other book might you compare Roughing It to and why?
Other BDSM books may be more graphic with multiple partners. But this is one night between two consenting adults. The fantasy plays well into the scene.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
Will fantasy become a reality for these two stranger?
