Here is the review: 
Monica Bouvier surprised me in the novel "Tickle Me" with many elements that I would not have associated in an erotic fiction.  Bouvier's characters are well developed and as a reader you really have to pay attention to this plot from beginning to end to get the full concept.  Tickle Me was a good novel and kept me mildly interested.  This novel reads kind of like a soap opera, there is drama, sex, intimacy  backstabbing and a sense of feeling that all is not well with the office workers.  I did quite enjoy how Bouvier included office politics within the story line it made the story have a more realistic feel to it.  At points the reader could identify with the main character Alice and who hasn't had  or wanted a tough/bad "A" friend like Patty.  I reiterate the character setup was superb.   Although I thought the novel was entirely too long for the plot, it was not a bad read and I would venture into reading some more of Bouvier's works.Tickle Me put a definite spin on erotic fiction and was very well rounded novel despite the wordiness. 

Thank you!

Here is the review:

 Tickle Me is an erotic and humorous romance novel written by Monica Bouvier. Alice is nearly thirty, considers herself homely and stuck in a job where she does all of the work while a pretty co-worker gets all of the credit. Feeling like she’ll never meet anyone in Alaska she starts an online flirtation with Eric, a part German, part Mexican (among other nationalities) who lives in Greece and is looking for a job in Alaska. They make plans to meet and for the majority of the book they write sappy emails to each other that include fantasies they have about each other and poetry. Each fantasy involves their fetish which is to be tickled. Different strokes for different folks as they say. I didn’t get the eroticism of being tickled and just found it hilarious when they signed their emails “tickles”. Also, if someone emailed me out of the blue and started talking about the deep connection he felt for me I would begin to think he was a stalker and creep. Not Alice. She gains confidence from his emails and starts changing her life for the better. Aside from the whole tickle fetish thing, the book is actually quite good and often really funny. The writing is smooth and makes the book enjoyable to read. The erotic parts are done tastefully and the characters are well written, especially Alice, who was easy to relate to with her self doubt and emotions. It’s chicklit in its truest form. I did find that the back and forth emails got to be a bit monotonous but I really wanted to see what would happen when they actually met. A fun read!
 

Thank you!

ALLBOOKS REVIEW:

Genre:    Fiction

Title:       Tickle Me

Author:  Monica Bouvier

Alice’s online love affair with Erik has changed her life.  The once plain, shapeless young woman who had no self-confidence and no self-esteem is gone, replaced with a confident beauty who knows who she is and what she wants.  Alice suffered greatly as a child and as a youth.  She was badly bullied, had no friends and little support from her family.  She surrounded herself with the Gods of Ancient Greece and prayed to them to help her find love in this lonely life, for even as an adult, Alice has but one good friend, Patty, who has tried her very best to help Alice become the woman that she knows Alice can be.  Nothing seemed to work until Alice receives an email message from Erik, a handsome young man who is as interested in communicating with her as she is with him.  Their online relationship is incredibly hot and steamy and Alice becomes more involved as their communication continues.  Her love for him encourages her to change and she begins to learn a little about the yearnings and needs that a young woman has, something that Alice has buried deeply within her. Finally there is a man in her life that loves her.  But Patty is trying to make Alice realize that she has not even met this man.  There are many online romances that are begun by hateful scam artists who take personal information and money from needy, unknowing victims.  She believes that Erik is not real and will eventually devastate Alice’s heart. And though Patty soon learns the truth, it may ruin her valuable friendship with Alice.

Now, if the title and the cover make you believe that this is just another romance, look again.  Monica Bouvier has molded many layers into an excellent novel of suspicions, mystery, criminal investigation and yes, romance; the reader will be surprised as the plot unfolds.  Her characters possess very real emotions, anxieties and experiences. Online romance and scams are an issue of our modern internet world and Monica approaches the subject with knowledge and sensitivity through her character, Patty. This was a novel I found hard to put down. At the end, you will find a section of questions that you could read first to highlight your reading experience or use for group discussion at a reading group.
