I like Rob Rosen’s writing as he’s funny, witty, and often over the top. My problem with his short stories is that they tend to be more erotica based than I prefer, but I always appreciate the humor. The Prince and The Frog is good for that. It’s a definite tongue in cheek take on the classic fairy tale and I read it in about 15 minutes so I can’t complain. It’s not as memorable as some of Rosen’s other work but it’s cute, easy to read, and doesn’t take itself too seriously as erotica; a trait I enjoy in Rosen’s writing.
The story is about a spoiled second son of a King that is lonely at the start. He’s jacking off with his royal cock ring on but loses it in a moment of passion. A helpful frog offers to return the ring if the prince will love and house the frog. The prince of course agrees then tries to go back on his word. At only 12 pages the story is basic without much embellishment. It does however involve the prince jacking off on almost every page, if not every paragraph. He’s a randy kind of prince. However, he’s never known love so woe is he.
There’s not much I can say but I did enjoy the constant humor in regards to the prince’s seeming never ending erection. The story is very tongue in cheek and I liked the details about the frog – from the “splish splash pitter patter” to his long hopping journey every day. It was cute and of course there’s a happy ending, of both kinds. I will likely forget I ever read it unfortunately but it’s cute and likely to appeal to the author’s fans.
