A Valentine's Gift For Tori by Zenobia Renquist
Red Rose Publishing
Short Story, M/F/M, Multiple Partners
Review by Sunflower

Does a secret fantasy become a reality or is it like petals in the wind?

She wants a boyfriend for Valentine’s and her husband wants to deliver. Tori has come to the realization that her marriage lacks the spark it had in the beginning. She and her husband argue more than anything else and she foresees a nasty break-up on the horizon if something doesn’t change. When he asks her what she wants for Valentine’s Day, her answer is scandalous and straightforward—a boyfriend.

Rather than be upset, her husband is intrigued by the idea and sets out to make it happen. Tori has set herself—and him—an impossible goal and her prospects aren’t that promising. But she’s determined to have a boyfriend in time for the most romantic holiday of the year.

A Valentine's Gift for Tori is such a thrill! Can you just imagine bluntly telling your husband - not ask mind you, but TELL - after he cheated on you that you want a relationship with another man for a Valentine's gift? That you won't consider an affair and not only that, but you'd stay married to the cheating husband?

This is what Tori had the guts to do one day and to tell you the truth, this is a totally wonderful and extraordinary premise. How many women would actually dare doing something like that? Not many I guess, but what an avant-guardist, liberal and progressive way to envision relationships.

What I found funny were the different steps that led Tori to realize how difficult it was going to be to make her desire a reality. She was dismayed to find her Valentine's hunt riddled with narrow minded callers.

For me, the best part was the generous gift from her husband. Not only that, I was amazed at how her family seems to have an open-minded acceptance for the new situation. She even felt trapped and overwhelmed by the result at one point; but get ready for the wonderful surprise they get.

I can not continue without giving you spoilers about this wonderful and enlivening story...

Do not hesitate to read this yourself, because as far as I am concerned it was so good, it ended up being a fast read - I read it in less than 2 hours. Not only did I absolutely love it, I was really disappointed to see it end.
