Linda is a calculating, career-driven woman whose perfect world is shattered when she is seduced and transformed by a vampire-like creature called a nymphomite. Linda becomes a beast, feeding off the energy of orgasmically-charged blood. Convinced that her humanity has faded away, Linda adapts to her new instincts of hunger and sex. She hunts women primarily, for their lon Linda is a calculating, career-driven woman whose perfect world is shattered when she is seduced and transformed by a vampire-like creature called a nymphomite.
She hunts women primarily, for their longer and more frequent orgasms, and becomes a master of prolonging and intensifying their pleasure. But she never expected to find a woman like Jesse, and Linda's decision to spare her life instead of feed off her leads to a shocking turn of events that will make Linda question her beastlike identity and the humanity she thought she had lost.

Initially, I had planned to hide away in a darkened corner, curl up with a nice glass of wine, and enjoy Fireflies in a single setting. It seemed like such a slender book, and I assumed an erotic tale about Nymphomite vampires would simply demand a quick, intense read. At its core, this is the story of three ve Initially, I had planned to hide away in a darkened corner, curl up with a nice glass of wine, and enjoy Fireflies in a single setting.
At its core, this is the story of three very different women. Natasha is the vampire who turned her, and who laments the loss of her own humanity. Jesse is the passionate, free-spirited artist who, upon being turned by Linda, chooses to reject humanity and embrace the monster inside.
Despite that depth, this is a very fast-paced story, full of frantic action, and sublimely erotic scenes of lesbian arousal. The language here is beautiful, with words selected particularly in the more erotic scenes to be both subtle and powerful, without being rudely explicit. The first-person perspective of Linda adds a sense of immediacy to everything that happens, and almost demands that we exhibit the same superhuman stamina in following her from one encounter to another.
At times exhilarating, and at times exhausting, Fireflies is a story that engages the reader physically, emotionally, and intellectually. Whether she chooses to revisit the fireflies and Nymphomites again, or takes her talents in a completely different direction, Lacey Reah is certainly an author to keep an eye on. May 09, Sandra rated it really liked it. At the start readers are confronted with Linda, a woman who likes to go out alone and watch the fireflies play around in the dark, but she gets more than she expected to when she stays out too long.
Her husband worries about her safety, but Linda is sure that nothing untoward will happen to her as long as she is careful. Lacey informs us that Linda is afraid of no one, not when she can use martial arts to her advantage and can ward off men twice her size with her abilities.
She gives off a grace At the start readers are confronted with Linda, a woman who likes to go out alone and watch the fireflies play around in the dark, but she gets more than she expected to when she stays out too long. She gives off a grace and defence that is almost superhuman, yet also sexy. Linda is a woman who has gone through a transformation, she has an admiration for her own kind, even going so far as to consider making love to other women after her husband, Pierre had got her to admire her own femininity.
When she has taken her stroll that night she sees a woman who she admits is otherworldly, strange, yet beautiful who fits the stereotype of vampires with red eyes and harbouring desires of the flesh. The fireflies are a metaphor for a woman's sexual interest in other men or women, and, of course, the desire to feed, as the woman Linda meets has for her.
Her questions only go so far as to find out if she is up for being seduced by her and being her nourishment. As their conversation has intrigued her, they give their names, hers being Natasha, a strange name for someone so foreign. Fireflies are beautiful, Linda finds out, but when Natasha mentions the nymphomites, she instantly wants to know more.
The nymphomites live in the shadows, in the deeper rocks of the park, and at no point during their conversation does Linda get nervous or fearful as she is aware of her own strength, and so Natasha as she's the one doing the wooing. We find out that Linda is satisfied with having Pierre as her lover, he has the perfect moves, impresses her in bed and out, makes her happy when she is sad, but most of all he proves to be her life partner, but it doesn't stop her giving in to these nymphomites when they come to take her.
Fireflies is a delicious story of sensual delight and sexual expectation of a woman's natural bisexual nature and it unfolds in a way that can be enlightening and disastrous to others. I enjoyed this story and would advise readers to keep an eye out for other titles by this writer. Oct 17, Nicole rated it did not like it Recommends it for: No-one.
Shelves: free , i-cant-believe-i-finished , pos. I think I picked this up for free with a smashwords coupon from a thread so I wasn't expecting much but please, please, please can someone tell me the point to this madness??????
Women are beautiful sensual creatures yup yup I candle handle that. But Linda our female lead is so shallow and unbelievable I couldn't stomach it. Add in it's written in her pov and then she turns into this "beast" and all we get is "I stealthily sneak into the nearest subway station" "I jump" "I leap" I I I I I I I want to blow her brains out! Ok I guess let me put the brakes on a bit. Linda is a perfect Manhattanite with a great job, a wonderful handsome husband, and a 10 to top it all off.
It drives her crazy when her husband lovingly jokes that she is "perfect". She goes into central park one night to watch fireflies and gets seduced by Natasha.
Not so bad eh? Seems like we might get a little PNR fun and sex out of the story? I am sure there is some redeeming message in this POS for us all to learn from But it was not meant to be.

The book is a little more erotic than I normally read, but not so over the top that it was impossible to read. Though I wouldn't recommend reading it around kids or at work: My 9 year old grabbed it out of my purse and asked some awkward questions after reading two sentences.

Linda is the main character and this story is told entirely in her point of view, while this works for most books, I was left wondering what was going on with other characters in the book Pierre, Natasha, and even Jesse , even though Natasha and Pierre are brought up towards the end of the book, I feel that more could have been done with them.
The fast pace of the book can at times be confusing but the imagery that Lacey paints with her words is wonderful. At times I felt as if I was seeing what Linda was seeing and feeling what the other minor characters of the book were feeling. There is a lot of sexual acts in the book, but not so many that it takes away from anything in the book, a lot of the more graphic parts are really skipped over which is a great thing makes you imagine what you think is happening. The wording of the sexual scenes aren't graphic and Lacey uses so many different words to describe the anatomy instead of the more common words used, which makes for a safer read in my opinion.
The issues that Linda faces after she is turned into a Nymphomite, not knowing exactly what she is or how to really survive; not having money and having to scavenge for clothes from her victims, and in the end falling for Jesse only to have her turn against her; I could see her humanity slipping and then watching her gain it back after meeting Jesse was amazing. Fireflies is a very quick read at only 95 pages, but it will leave you wanting more!!
