When In Rome: Wearing Sister's Clothes! by Courtney Captisa and Claire Bear

Before I get into talking about the story, I have to give a huge shout out to Fraylim for the illustrations here. Normally, I pay no attention to interior illustrations when reading on my Kobo, but here they are so perfectly placed, and so perfectly suited to the story, that they really do add a little special something. Bravo!

Now, as for the story, When In Rome: Wearing Sister's Clothes! is the second in the Modern TG Fiction Classics series by Courtney Captisa and Claire Bear (following A Girlfriend for Christmas). Here we have a story of three young women planning to go on vacation, with a young man forced to take his sister's place - in more ways than one. While it is is clear early on than the ladies have ulterior motives for Chris, the true depth and breadth of their plans are not fully revealed until the very end. While the final scenes are a bit over the top, and do strain the bounds of credibility, it is a fun read getting there.

Courtney and Claire have a flair for characterization, and they make everyone come alive here. They also have a real talent for feminization, so those who want to indulge and enjoy Chris' predicament vicariously will certainly find a lot to enjoy. There is just the right amount of fight and spite in his character, and the ways in which he succumbs to the pleasures of being Chelsea are handled very well. I, of course, will not spoil any of those sexy secrets, but Chris is going to come home a changed boy, and . . . well, let us just say his are not the only changes to be revealed.
