I fuck them. I use them. I pay them off. I find another. My demands are never denied. My contracts are always signed. They submit to me. Willingly. Completely. Temporarily. This is how it's always been.
Until I saw that filthy tweet.
@VaughnAsher My bare pussy. Your tongue. #ThingsIThinkAboutToGetOff
"FilthyBlueBird" thinks she can tease me with hashtags and then hide behind a Twitter handle? She thinks I wouldn't be more than happy to #RockHerFilthyWorld? She's wrong.
Her online fantasy is about to collide with her public reality, and it's about to happen... now.
Follow is the first installment in Huss’ new serial Social Media. Hot, with a dominant male and a submissive who doesn’t know yet that she is, and a tropical island, it is very different from other contemporary stories I’ve read.
Follow is Grace and Vaughn’s story, Grace has been lusting after this movie-star for years, and she even has a twitter group where she uses hashtags and sexual innuendos in 140 characters to show her online friends how she feels about him. When she goes on vacation in St. Thomas with her best friend, she ends up meeting Vaughn for real, and she has no idea what to do when her fantasy and her reality become a new, twisted place.
I enjoyed Grace a lot in Follow, she isn’t a girl who will let anyone walk all over her, even Vaughn who has always been her dream-come-true. Vaughn is a master manipulator, though, and a dom, and famous, so Grace doesn’t have a lot of options when it comes to dealing with him. I felt very uneasy with Vaughn, because he didn’t know Grace at all, but he still pushed all her boundaries, without really thinking of the possible consequences of that.
After letting Vaughn get to her, Grace feels used, and decides this is it! And this is where she showed me her back-bone and got things done just so she could live her life, her vacation, her fantasies and her dreams at her own pace and by her own decisions. Followed is a very hot read, with a guy who seems to be both a prince and an ass, a girl who wants to be a princess but not the spotlight, and I’m sure the whole series of Social Media will appeal to me.
Written both from Vaughn and Grace’s point of view, I did get to know them both a little bit, but even reading Vaughn’s thoughts he felt very shielded, like he was protecting himself from prying eyes just the way a famous star might do when meeting someone new. One of the things I really enjoyed in Follow is that there is a lot of use of Twitter, and it is so relevant to the world today, the way Grace was more or less stalking Vaughn, then didn’t want to deal with the real man, it’s something I think a lot of readers can relate to.
We are the goddesses of gossip and we own this shit. We take bubbly optimism to a whole new virtual level. Our motto is Happiness is a #Hashtag and we live life knowing the fairy tale is possible, even if you only get it online.
But back to my mouth – and by extension, my fingertips since they do all my talking on Twitter – it has a mind of its own. And that mind is very dirty. Yes, my name is Grace Kinsella and I’m a filthy tweeter.
That’s my fantasy. That’s my fairy tale. Vaughn Asher doing things to me that can only be said in a hashtag.
