For some people, married life just isn’t for them. Daniel Alexander and Isabel, or Bel as she is known don’t get on. Daniel is certain he wants a divorce, but he would be too much of a cad if he came out with that as she has been having a hell of a time and still has feelings of affection for her. On the other hand, he finds sex with her boring, dull and routine but he puts up with it just for her.
In the meantime, to satisfy his lust for something different, he has hired help gardener Francie come and make his life more interesting by being his muse for nights where she will stroke his cock into pleasures he has never had before, while also considering that he isn’t actually having sex with her, so he isn’t cheating. Things get difficult when Francie meets an old college buddy, Simon, a landscape gardener who wants to watch too, and before long, Bel, his wife starts to have an unusual affair – with her friend, Ellen, a massage therapist who she isn’t cheating with as she is a woman…or so she thinks.
Readers will notice Daniel is a definite deviant, a pervert of the highest order. He wants sex all the time, every time, even when Francie doesn’t feel like it. He will also do it anywhere as well. In one sequence he wanks near her while she is in the garden doing the weeding! There are problems though, Francie doesn’t like him going back to his wife’s bed even though it is she who is the mistress. It’s an unusual situation as even with this happening, his wife is actually not interested in what he does, as she already has her hands full with Ellen.
Surrogates is full of tongue in cheek comedy, and has just the right amount of erotica to fill readers minds with accounts of how both Daniel and Bel get their orgasms. This is a voyeur’s version of heaven.
