Review: 69 Shades of Nashville: Sociopathic Sex Southern Style
Author: Nicole Kelly, M.D.
It is little wonder why the author of 69 Shades of Nashville: Sociopathic Sex Southern Style uses the “nom de plume,” Nicole Kelly, M.D. The answer is simple. Kelly in reality is a practising Nashville physician and after reading some of her graphic descriptions accompanied by over 300 playful and amusing cartoons of her protagonist and narrator Nashville Kitty, you can well get the idea why she would not want her patients to know her identity or the names of the various characters, details and locations concerning the many sexual escapades described in the novel.
As a matter of fact, the work of fiction is based on an authentic sex addict and sociopath who Kelly knew and who had stolen vast sums of money from her as well as causing boundless havoc in the lives of neurotypicals.
You are probably now shaking your heads and asking what is a "neurotypical" person? Kelly informs us that such a person's neurological makeup is of the more common variety resulting in someone who thinks, perceives, and behaves in ways that are considered to be “normal” by the general population. On the other hand, “sociopaths are a different breed of humans and that they do not suffer from many of the typical emotions that plague the rest of humanity, such as empathy, guilt or remorse.” To give us a better understanding as to just how sociopaths operate, Kelly invites us inside the mind of Nashville Kitty in the hope that she will enlighten us as to what makes her tick as she deftly leads us through the small inns and outs of her outlandish behavior.
Readers are privy to the manipulative behavior of Nashville Kitty who labels her conquests with appropriate aliases such as Neighborhood Dad, ItalianStallion, ChainReaction, Landscapelover, GeorgiaBulldog, AlphaPassion, and MrAverageJoe37069, Tensin and others each of whom exhibit a distinct quality as to their personalities, sexual dexterity and competencies. All of these characters are discovered on a dating site similar to the well-known Ashley Madison where thousands of people are looking for discreet adulterous relationships.
Nashville Kitty discovers there is a treasure trove of useful information online where she would be able to find partners that would learn her body, adore her, while treating her like a princess. She does not crave intimacy in the traditional sense and in fact sociopaths are incapable of intimacy, per society's definition according to Kelly. Thus, the only satisfying option was dating multiple men at once and this is what brings her to the website, “Aubrey Madeline” where she fills out a form listing her age as twenty-eight, height 5'2”, weight 105 pounds and indicates that her limits are something long term. Her status is attached female seeking a male.
To her surprise, in the first twelve hours, she receives an overwhelming two hundred messages wherein she asks herself are there really so many desperate married men seeking an adulterous affair? Upon further research, she finds out that the site had a scandalous history and was recently hacked revealing the email addresses of all of its clients. Sound familiar? This nonetheless did not deter Nashville Kitty with continuing with the site and in so doing we witness all kinds of erotic encounters leading to quite a thrilling and surprise ending.
Although, 69 Shades of
Nashville: Sociopathic Sex Southern Style may
not be everyone's cup of tea, particularly readers who are put off by
vulgarity, there will be many that will nonetheless enjoy Kelly's
piercing and often laugh-out-loud takes concerning fornication,
sexual boredom and adulterous behavior. After putting down the book,
I have to admit that it certainly is an original work of fiction
containing dozens of scenes that are so wickedly delicious that I
even ended up forgiving Kelly for some of her coarse x-rating
