One for the Team - Maggie Clark - K-City Kink Sisters Book 2

One for the Team
K-City Kink Sisters
Book 2

ISBN 9781458101594

This is the second eBook short story available in the K-City King Sisters series. And for now it is the last. Maggie is dedicating her writing time to other projects and any future stories in this series will likely be a long way off. More the pity.

This book comes with a content warning: "This book contains content considered unsuitable for young readers 17 and under, and which may be offensive to some readers of all ages." And to be honest, if your writing is not offending someone it is likely not very good, or a-la Nicholas Sparks. Yes this story is set in the world of Roller Derby, and yes there is a certain amount of lesbian love, lost and revenge. But it is the story of a relationship remembered and saying to hell with the consequences and dishing out punishment in the world of flat track roller derby.

I consider it a privilege to know Maggie Clark personally. It has been awesome watching her writing explode upon the literary scene. With each new piece I read I have a greater appreciation for her skill and talent. I do not think she has fully found her voice yet but she has created some awesome reads. Check this and her other stores out; they are sure to entertain! It is a good read and will give you a taste of her writing that will likely leave you wanting more.
