Book Blurb:

It's fascinating how everything yummy seems to come in plain brown wrapping. Indistinguishable. Just like the naughty little toys that Trista Rogers orders for research for the erotic books she's writing. Hand delivered goodies brought right to her door from her fantasy lover in chocolate brown - the UPS man. The dark cocoa hunk, Al Weatherby, has been on Trista's hit list since he took over her route. Sometimes she orders from the internet just to tease him with her long red hair, creamy skin and naughty clothing. Sadly, she's never tried anything with him. Until one blustery fall day that is. Asking him to join her for a frosty drink, their afternoon together quickly turns erotic. They both know they want more. Or do they?

As Trista plans another sinfully delicious event, another driver appears. Nearly devastated, Trista has no idea what happened to her fantasy man in brown. Fortunately, she quickly learns that the best surprises come in six foot something discrete brown boxes delivered right to her doorstep. And Al has brought his own special basket of toys this time to help Trista round out her research. With copious rounds of hot sex, a little voyeurism, and bodacious amounts of experimentation, come see why the best treats always come in plain brown wrapping.

My Thoughts:

This is a steamy, quick erotic story that will change your view of the UPS driver in your neighborhood. I wish mine were so yummy! "Treats in a Plain Brown Wrapper" is spicy & hot; a story that couples should read together. There's some light bondage and they explore, oh boy do they explore!, some of the sex toys that Trista has bought over the years. Don't make the mistake that I did and read it in a coffee shop. I almost spit out my iced coffee a time or two and I will never, ever look at a chocolate cruller in the same way again. :D 
The story starts when Trista has finally worked up the courage to make a move on her hunky delivery man, Al. She's delightfully surprised to find that not only is he interested, he's very, VERY interested. He wastes no time taking control of the situation, to the enjoyment and pleasure of both of them. Though written primarily as an erotic story, its also sweet and romantic. The story ends on a hopeful noted that there may be a HEA in the future for the two of them. 

Dayne wrote likable characters and mostly credible story lines. There are some copy editing issues and in my experience, it's unlikely that she would have had the same UPS driver for 5 years. But, if you just want a quick, hot story and aren't concerned about accuracy, then this will fit the bill. One thing I really liked is that the story doesn't take itself seriously, it has some nice humorous bits.
"I know you're still on duty but how about a cock..a Coke?"
 "Trista licked her lips wanting to explore his yummy, thick chocolate stick."

While I smirked and laughed throughout the story at Trista and Al's antics (as well as needed a cold drink), the final line of the novel made me laugh out loud. Overall, she nicely captured the joys of attraction, love and affection while also producing some sensual scenes. "Treats in a Plain Brown Wrapper" was a fun, hot story.

I received the PDF from the author for review. The review first appeared at Book Lovers Inc.


  1. LOL This does sound like a fun romp! I love how he "helps her with her research". Bwahahaha.

    But thanks for the warning - if I get this, I'll only read it at home. Preferably in bed... ;-)

  2. I may look into this in the future although I'm not generally a reader of literotica.


Thanks for taking the time to comment. I enjoy hearing from my readers. Let;s talk!
