OZ by Eden Elgabri and Heather Peters

Review of OZ by Eden Elgabri and Heather Peters

Published: November 1, 2010

4 out of 5 smirks

Synopsis: “Lionel and Crow and Tim, oh my!

Can Dorothea Gale escape the clutches of foreclosure by making a deal to have sex with three handsome men?

Dorothea Gale is a victim of a bad economy. After losing her job, Thea asks Tim Woodman, the man of her dreams and the contractor who built her home, to help her sell it. He leads her to the powerful William Ozarak, a voyeur, who offers her a deal - sexual submission for one month in exchange for two years worth of mortgage payments. Can she barter her body to prove 'there's no place like home'? Or will she lose her soul in the process?

Tim Woodman, who is in the middle of a divorce, isn't looking for entanglements. Yet he can't help be drawn to the sexy Thea. If he helps her will he lose his heart? Or did he even have one to begin with?”

OZ by Eden Elgabri and Heather Peters is one of the most unique versions of The Wizard of Oz out there to date. OZ retold the story of Dorothea and her adventures to save her home. OZ brings a whole new meaning to the phrase “off to see the wizard.”

Things to Love about OZ:

The portrayals of the Tin Man, Lion, Scarecrow, Flying Monkeys, Evil Witch, and The Wizard himself

The ruby red slippers or rather stilettos

The very open minded contract between all the characters

Tin Man finding his heart

Lion finding the courage to finally say who he is

Scarecrow, going from drunken frat boy to determined college student

Flying Monkeys being toxic

The kinky Evil Witch

And the wizard and his manipulative ways

OZ by Eden Elgabri and Heather Peters was a fun-open minded fast read, that will leave you wishing the two main characters could really just get back home or at least to their normal lives. I gave OZ by Eden Elgabri and Heather Peters 4 smirks because it was progressive, fun witted and kinky read which left you a new image of what The Wizard of Oz is and can be.
