Scientist John March has a problem. He needs the perfect subject to test out his new project, a sex pill called Impulse. His best friend, Grace Foley, might be the right woman for the job. She’s more than willing to see just how far these pills will take her … and her friend with benefits. But can John maintain his objectivity when he wants Grace for himself?
Grace wastes no time testing the big red pills and her own boundaries with her buddy, Tal Crusoe. Grace’s real fantasy is to spend more alone time with the sexy scientist who gave her the drugs, but her best friend has already refused her once. They’ll never go to the next level, but sharing her experiences with him – in explicit detail – might be the next best thing.
Unknown to either of them, Impulse has powerful side effects, including restlessness, chills, increased arousal, and brutal honesty. Continued use might result in breathtaking climaxes, exhibitionism, and complete loss of inhibition. You might even say it’s counterindicated for staying in the friend zone.
Note:Illicit Impulse was previously released by another publisher. It has been revised and re-edited in this version.
