Orgasmic Meditation? Therapeutic?! Kaylee Baker is horrified when her girlfriends suggest a trip to artsy Boulder, Colorado, to check out the latest craze. What her friends don’t know about Kaylee is that she is a little repressed, bordering on frigid, and the idea of a complete stranger bringing her to orgasm–therapeutic or not–is horrifying.
Blaze Donahue has admired Kaylee from afar for quite some time, and part of the reason he’s kept his distance is because he’s had no indication that she might even be interested. But when he’s given the opportunity to offer her his own version of OM with no strings attached, he makes an offer she has a hard time refusing.
When there are undeniable sparks between the two, Kaylee runs, afraid of the overwhelming feelings she has for this gorgeous, sensitive guy. Blaze feels compelled to convince her otherwise but wonders if he’ll be able to crack through the ice surrounding this sweet girl. Can they find true love or will it just be a one-time O?
Finger Bang Excerpts
Excerpt #1
Rachel wasn’t waiting for anyone to keep up. “I read an article on it earlier today, so then I
Googled it. Have any of you ever heard of tantric sex?” Shannon nodded her head but Maddy
said no. Kaylee shook her head, but Rachel was already storming the castle. “Well, the concept
is similar. It’s all Buddhist and higher level and stuff...but it’s fucking orgasms, you know? I
mean...that shit’s insane! And to have someone doing it to you without expecting a blowjob in
return?” She laughed. “I am so there.”
Maddy laughed along with her friend but then said, “Doesn’t that just make the person bringing
it on an overpaid pretentious whore?”
“You would think so, but no. They are totally serious about it. You even keep your shirt on!
They say they want to remove the goal—you know, that you have to orgasm. It’s more about the
experience, focusing on the sensations. And it’s fifteen minutes. That’s it. And then you talk
about it.”
Shannon burst out laughing. “You talk about it? What?! ‘Baby, was it good for you’?”
Rachel giggled. “No. Maybe. I don’t know!” The poor waiter handed Rachel her new drink
and she donned a lustful smile. The alcohol was definitely talking. “Thank you so much. I will
be tracking you down later. I want to stuff a tip down your pants.”
He smiled again, and Kaylee could see he was nervous. She thought he must have imagined
Rachel as a jaguar, and if she got anywhere near him on the open plain, she’d chase his ass,
knock him down, and tear into his flesh.
Kaylee suspected Rachel just might consider it. The girl got horny when she drank, and her lips
got loose to boot, so her sex life (or want of one) was not a secret when she was imbibing.
Rachel said, “We are going to Boulder next week. We have to do this.”
Kaylee felt the blood drain from her face. No way. No way in hell was she going to do
something crazy like that.
“Oh, my God, yes!” Maddy said, her voice higher in pitch, close to a squeal. Shannon was
enthusiastic as well, her head pumping up and down with vigor. The three women then turned to
look at Kaylee.
She was going to have to say something. Damn it. She waved her hands in front of herself.
“Oh, no, girls. That’s way out of my comfort zone.”
Rachel reached across the table, patting Kaylee’s hand. “Exactly why you have to do it.”

Excerpt #2
Rachel leaned over the table and tipped her glass at Kaylee as though it were a pointer. “I’ll
loosen you up before you graduate if it’s the last thing I do.” She sat back up and what little
sobriety she’d seemed to possess just seconds ago had disappeared. “In the meantime, Maddy,
Shannon? Come with me to the bar to fetch more drinks and we can iron out the details without
making our prudish friend blush.”
Well, too late. As the three women slid out of the booth, Kaylee felt just that—a mad red flush
racing up her face, stinging her cheeks. She hoped it wasn’t evident in the bar or maybe she
could blame it on drinking, but Rachel had, with her few words, made Kaylee not only feel
prudish but embarrassed. And in front of all people...
Once the women were up, though, Blaze showed no inkling of having registered his sister’s last
words. Kaylee began to feel awkward then. What the hell would she say to this super hot guy
after a conversation like that? She had decided to ask him how classes were going when he said,
“I can’t blame you really. I don’t think I could do that either.” He grinned. “Even though I find
the idea intriguing.” Kaylee felt her cheeks redden again, but she smiled before looking down at
her glass once more. “Not gonna pay for it, though. Fuck that.”
Kaylee picked up her glass and sipped what little water was left in it, simply to have something
to do. Her alcohol glass was drained as well, both down to ice cubes. She didn’t know what
to say so she nodded her head and smiled. She’d always found Blaze’s looks and charm
intimidating, so she was feeling more than a little tongue-tied. She didn’t want him to think she
was a snooty bitch, though, so she said, “I agree.”
He rested his chin on his arms on the chair and said, “What’s the part that has you freaking out
more? The fact that it would be a stranger or that you’d be paying for it?”
His question helped her relax a little. It felt like he was taking a practical approach and wanted
to discuss the matter as two adults. They weren’t actually talking about orgasms or...fingers
and clits, for God’s sake. So she took a deep breath and gave the matter a little thought. It
didn’t take long for her to say, “I think it’s that it’s a stranger.” She didn’t know why she felt
compelled to continue—especially with Blaze—but she did. “Seriously. It’s hard enough to
relax and then you have someone you’ve never met before trying to make you feel good. I can’t
imagine.” She smiled and rolled her eyes, hoping she appeared relaxed now, because she was far
from it.
Blaze didn’t intend to help the matter at all. “What if it was you and me?”
Had she heard him right? And why the hell was her heart thudding in her chest? She had a hard
time sucking in a breath, but when she was able to, she asked, “What do you mean?” Her voice
was so low, she was surprised he could hear it.
“If I was the therapist.” He sat up and used the index and middle fingers of both his hands to air
quote his last word. “You sister, Maddy, and Shannon go to Boulder to have some
stranger finger bang them, but what if someone you knew took care of you here?”
Her jaw didn’t drop to the table but she had lost all words. She just wished she could figure out
if Blaze was yanking her chain or making her the offer of a lifetime.
Excerpt #3
Kaylee squeezed her eyes closed and she could feel the anticipation build inside her, waiting
for his finger to touch her. God, why wouldn’t her heart slow down? Trying to force herself to
relax as he’d requested, she let her head fall back against his shoulder. She heard him whisper,
“That’s it.”
And then he slid his finger down her slit. Oh. Okay. Oh, yeah. So...that felt really nice. Yeah,
she’d have no problems focusing on the sensations he was going to create. That felt spectacular.
Another stroke. Oh, God, yeah. Yeah. Her last boyfriend had gone down on her a couple of
times and it had felt nice, but he’d assaulted her with his tongue, and the sensations had been
nice but overwhelming, and she hadn’t relaxed. No. She’d been quite tense, in spite of the good
Blaze, though, he was taking it slow as though he hadn’t a care in the world. Another stroke, and
she had plenty of time to think about it, enjoy it, let the music wash over her while she could take
in a deep breath of air and relish what was going on.
Okay, so maybe she’d been wrong. Maybe this was a fucking awesome idea, and she couldn’t
wait to talk about it with her roommates. It was—
Holy shit. She’d just let a noise escape her mouth. Well, it wasn’t like she could have stopped it.
It was feeling so damn—
A gasp. Wow. What the hell was he doing? She didn’t want him to stop. It was amazing. Each
time his finger moved up and down over her, she could tell now that something was imminent.
If he kept doing it, something was going to happen. She was building to something that was
going to blow her mind, that much she knew now, and she wouldn’t have wanted him to quit for
That was when she felt his warm lips on her neck, kissing her. Somehow he knew what to do
to make her feel incredible, because his lips just added to whatever the hell he was doing below.
Her breath was coming in gasps now, deep, hitting the bottom of her lungs as she drew each one
in, and she could feel some weird connection between her clit and her brain. They were working
in unison now and the world outside her house might have been burning down for all she knew
and cared, because now her whole world was Blaze.
No. Make that his finger.
No. Not just his finger. His lips. His body cupping hers.
And that climb, that delicious, tight climb up to somewhere unknown...

I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

This is a fun short read. The story is about Kaylee, a young sexually inexperienced college student. She has had a strict Christian upbringing and has fears surrounding any sexual activity before marriage due to the beliefs passed on to her by her parents and her church community.

She lives with 3 very outgoing friends who want to go on a sexual adventure to Boulder to experience "OM" (Orgasmic Meditation) hence the title "Finger Bang"!. Naturally the idea of this horrifies poor Kayle,e so off her friends go leaving her alone for the weekend.

Enter Blaze, brother of Rachel one of Kaylee's housemates who has been Kaylee's long time crush for a couple of years but she has never acted on it.  He is hot and sexy, intelligent and sensitive and makes the perfect book boyfriend. He makes Kaylee an offer of giving her the "OM"experience and she doesn't turn him down!!!!

The rest of the story deals with the sexual awakening of Kaylee and the demons she has to fight to be comfortable in her mind dealing with this and her growing feelings towards Blaze, who has always admired Kaylee from afar.

The story is written in the 3rd person perspective and although I do normally prefer 1st person or dual perspective the story did flow well. I empathized with Kaylee's internal battles over her growing sexual needs and loved Blaze's patience and caring attitude towards her. The character development was good with a good supporting cast of friends and due to their outgoing nature gave Kaylee's character more depth.

There were a few laugh out loud moments, especially when the friends described their trip to Boulder to experience their "OM"!  With sex being the main theme of the story it was written in both a sensual and fun way.

I would have preferred a slightly longer story, but it was a quick lighthearted read of a girl on a journey of sexual discovery. It is a perfect holiday read!

Unfortunately, there’s no one genre that quite fits her writing. Her work has been labeled romance, erotica, suspense, and women’s fiction, and the latter is probably the safest and closest description. But you’ll see that her writing doesn’t quite fit any of those genres.
