A Stud

Book One




By J.A Melville















I have so many people I need to thank for having faith in me despite me being plagued with insecurities at times.

To the lady who first asked me to start writing I thank my friend who is like my sister, Andrea. I thank Lorraine for always having faith in my abilities as a writer, even when I doubted myself. I can’t forget Sharon too for her encouragement and for providing me with things to laugh about when I was taking it all too seriously.

I want to thank Danielle, Debbie, Karen, Mary and Katherine who read my books long before publishing and who keep me on the straight and narrow. To my wonderful friend and PR ladies Tracy and Jess, the ladies from Sweet N Sassy Book A Holics and SNS Authors who have had to endure my endless questions given my painfully inadequate computer skills, I give a heartfelt thank you.

I also want to give a special thank you to Tasha; who has been incredibly supportive.

To the ladies from Controlled who provide hours of distractions for me and who keep me entertained when I’m supposed to be writing I say thank you.

I give special thanks to one of my closest friends, Rachael who puts up with my constant Facebook messages. Not only is she there every day despite us living at opposite ends of the planet, she happens to be a very talented author.

Thank you to all the ladies who have been there since book one; you help me far more than you will ever probably realise.

Thank you too, to the new friends and wonderful bloggers I’ve met recently, who have kindly taken it upon themselves to promote me.

I have to give thanks to another lady, a very special lady who is determined to make it so more people know of me and who very kindly took the time to make my website for me. I can’t thank you enough Lori.

Then of course, I want to thank my partner Roger and our three children, Bianca, Jesse and Reilly who have had to suffer through hastily constructed meals, a less than tidy home, my vague behaviour and me seemingly always having my head buried in my laptop. I'm sure they have found me frustrating on more than one occasion and I've no doubt they got sick of talking to the top of my head.

An extra special big thank you to my daughter Bianca who designed the cover for this book since she knows her mother is technologically challenged.

I can't write this without thanking all my English teachers from back in my school days many moons ago who always told me I should consider a career in writing when I grew up. Well, it might have taken me awhile, but I finally did as you all suggested, thank you. All of those people who have been there throughout my short writing career and never let me give up, I say THANK YOU.

























About the Author


From my teenage years, all I wanted to do was become a writer one day. Even now as an adult woman with a partner and three children who are not so little anymore, I've always lived with my head in the clouds, a dreamer, often amusing myself with my own imagination.

It might have taken me awhile to finally live my dream, but I did it. I hope to one day be good enough to stand beside the many talented writers out there who have kept me entertained with their wonderful stories over the years.

I live in a sleepy country town in Tasmania, Australia with my partner and three children plus our 4 cats, dog and cattle.

I've had to overcome many emotional obstacles along the way to get to this point and attempting to self publish a book does tend to make a person feel like they've thrown themselves in at the deep end of the pool. Here's hoping some of you actually like what I write and save me from drowning in the deep end as I probably forgot to mention, I can't swim.

J. A Melville.

         Chapter One

“I swear Mel, if I have to endure another man, who thinks sex is all about mounting up, and pounding away, like he’s a bloody pile driver, I’m changing my sexual orientation.” I moaned as I took another sip of my glass of wine.

My flatmate, and best friend Mel, turned her baby blue eyes on me, and grinned. “You sure do know how to pick them Gracie girl. Still, for me, the best one of all was Bryan. Was it Bryan? That was his name wasn’t it? You have to admit, he was smooth.”

I snorted, and sprayed wine over myself. “Yeah, he was a charmer alright. I guess after some reflection, I should have guessed, that when he asked if I wanted to fuck, that, that was probably as good as it was going to get. Still, call me optimistic. I thought there would be a little foreplay first. I didn’t realise, that when he asked if I wanted to fuck, that he meant getting straight into it. Then to add insult to injury, as he’s pounding away sounding like an out of breath Bulldog, he asked if it was good for me too.” I rolled my eyes. “Maybe if he’d taken the time, to find my clitoris, at some point during our lengthy three minute encounter, I might have had a shot at coming.”

Mel grinned again. “You know, we should go somewhere. We’re a pair of sad saps, sitting here drinking wine, and reminiscing about our history of lousy lays. Saturday night and we’re home. Girls of our age should be out, painting the town red, or some shit at least.”

“I don’t want to go to the club. I’ll drink too much, let myself get picked up by someone who looks like a stud, but who fucks like a lump of clay, and have to sneak from his home, in the dead of night, or kick him out of my bed, and finish off with the aid of B.O.B.” I said. 

“Well what do you want to do?” Mel tipped her head back, and swallowed the last of her glass of wine.

“We could go and see a movie?” I suggested, raising a questioning eyebrow at my best friend.

“I suppose that would be ok for a change. Let me grab the paper, so I can see what’s on.” Mel jumped up, and disappeared from the room.

I flopped back on the lounge, drained the last of my wine, placing the empty glass on the coffee table. If we were going out, I didn’t need any more. I had a very pleasant buzz going on now as it was.

Melanie burst back into the living room, with her usual boisterous enthusiasm. There was no such thing, as quiet and subdued with Mel.

She held up the paper, shaking it at me. “I found it.” She announced, as if she’d just discovered the cure for Aids. She dropped down on the corner of the coffee table, and began to thumb her way through it.

“So what’s on?” I asked, starting to feel slightly sleepy, now the wine I’d been drinking, had settled in my stomach.

Without lifting her head, she told me to stop being so impatient, as she flipped through a few more pages, as noisily as she could, and finally fell silent, reading for a while.

“Well?” I tried again.

Mel started laughing. “Oh my god Grace.” Her eyes lifted from whatever she was reading, and met mine over the paper. “You’ll never guess what I just found.”

“Well I’m guessing, it’s not the list of what’s on at the cinema, that’s got you looking like you just won the lottery? Well, unless they’re bringing us the Fifty Shades of Grey movie, earlier than February that is?”

Pale blonde brows drew together over her blue eyes. “Don’t be stupid. If it was that, I wouldn’t be sitting here now, wanting you to guess what I’m reading. I’d be running to the cinema, to get a good seat, and you know I don’t run for anything.”

“Now that is true.” I grinned. “Even for a good looking man, I haven’t seen you so much as speed up, to a powerwalk.”

Melanie laughed. “My mother always told me, a lady doesn’t run. She should never exert herself, in any way that might result, in her perspiring.” She threw her head up, nose in the air. “A woman perspires. Did you know that? We don’t sweat. That’s too common apparently. It would also be considered very inappropriate, to chase a man.” She rolled her eyes at me. “Now you can see why I had to move out of home? I would have ended up like her, if I’d stayed.”

“You might make a shitty daughter, but you make a great friend and housemate.” I told her and she leaned forward so we could hug briefly. When she sat upright again, I gave her an expectant look. “So are you ever going to tell me what it is, that you read in the paper that got you, so excited?”

Mel’s eyes lit up, as she turned the paper towards me. “Check this out? This might be just what you need.”

My eyes dropped to the newspaper, and scanned it to see what it was, that had my friend so excited. At first all I saw were advertisements for weight loss, hair replacement therapy, and erectile dysfunction. Then I saw it, I saw what Melanie wanted me to see.

It was an ad. Fairly obscure in appearance, almost hidden amongst the larger, flashier looking ads. Curious, I leaned in for a closer look, and slowly began to read it, out aloud.


“Is your love life lacking lustre?”

“Are you stuck in a cycle of dead end relationships?”

“Has the spark gone out of your sex life?”

“Would you like to make your fantasies a reality?”

“Set your own sex scene.”

“We can cater to all your needs.”

“M/F, F/F, M/M, M/F/F, M/M/F”

“Why don’t you give us a call?”

“Dial a Stud Services Inc.”


I raised my eyes from the ad, and met Mel’s blue ones. “Are they joking? Is this for real?”

She shrugged. “I don’t know but the scary thing is; it’s like that ad is directed at us. Well more you than me, because let’s face it, your sex life is shittier than mine.”

I poked my tongue out at her. “Oh shut up Mel. Yours isn’t much better, and you know it. When was the last time, a man, any man got you off?”

“For your information, Sam was pretty good. He was the last one. We might have had something come of it, if he didn’t land that job overseas.”

“Maybe so.” My attention returned to the ad. “So what do you reckon this Dial a Stud is? It can’t be real, surely? What do they mean; set your own sex scene? They seem to be implying, they can cater to anyone’s sexual orientation.”

“I don’t know Gracie, but imagine if it’s legitimate. A team of men and women ready to serve us. Oh the possibilities. Just think; you could live out that fantasy of yours you once told me about.”

I nodded. “Well there is that I suppose. I don’t know why I want to experience two men. If it’s no good, it’s double the disappointment. Not to mention, I hate the thought of anal sex, but something, about seeing those short videos on line, of two men doing the one woman, gets me all hot and bothered.”

“Why don’t you give them a call?”

I shook my head. “I can’t call them Mel. It would be too embarrassing. I’m not sure I could face up to that level of intimacy with two strangers.”

Mel laughed. “You do it all the time. You don’t know any of those men you fuck with, when you get picked up at the club.”

“Thanks for making me sound like a slut.” I said dryly. “A, I don’t do it all the time. We don’t go out all that often, for me to be picking up strange men, and B, I’m usually drunk or not far off it, when I go home with these men, or bring them home with me. The alcohol dulls things enough so I don’t care. I’d be too embarrassed to face being double plugged sober. Plus I’m not your typical size 8 girl, Mel. I need the man to have been drinking too, so he’ll look past or just no longer give a shit, that I’m a fuller bodied gal. Something tells me these ‘studs’ won’t be half tanked by the time they come to fulfil someone’s fantasies.”
