Erotica and Romance Books Examiner review of Brenna Lyons' Night Warrior - Book One

Acquanetta Ferguson gave Brenna's exciting tale a rating of 5! Nice job!

"Bottom line, this book is highly recommended! This book gets a 5. It has vampires, warriors and bad chicks! The sex is hot! The fight scenes while not overly bloody, still kick ass! It also has several “books” that are featured within the story towards the end, so you get a better understanding of the this world! Don’t let it pass you by!"

Fallen Angel Reviews review of Michelle Houston's "Taming The Wolf: Animal Attraction"

NeNe gave Michelle's paranormal romance 5 Angels! Great job, Michelle!
"Michelle Houston brings us a wonderful love story in "Taming The Wolf: Animal Attraction." I loved the chemistry between the characters, the setting, and the plot. I appreciated how Ben's mind worked, and he was able to incorporate past lessons into what Nathan needed to learn. Ben and Nathan definitely heated up the pages in the bedroom. I appreciated the fact that regardless of the length of this book, Ms. Houston did not spend the entire twenty pages with Ben and Nathan in sexual play. There was just enough going on to entertain in and out of the bedroom. I'm looking forward to reading more from Ms. Houston in the near future!"

Fallen Angel Reviews review of Michelle Houston's "Blood Slave"

NeNe gave Michelle's paranormal work 4 Angels.

"I'm hoping Michelle Houston will introduce us to a few more vampires in need of a good blood slave. The stories consist primarily of bedroom domination and sexual play. Ms. Houston gives a quick overview of the virus and actions required to assist the infected vampires, which is just enough to help you understand the roles these men play in the vampires' lives."

Fallen Angel Reviews review of Mychael Black and Shayne Carmichael's 2050

NeNe gave Mychael and Shayne's M/M mystery 4 Angels.

"2050 is the latest gay murder mystery romance by Mychael Black and Shayne Carmichael. I loved the fact that these two wonderful authors focused on Julian and Richie getting to know one another before they started any real erotic encounters. The brief moments of intimacy definitely had you panting for more, but only built toward the excitement of witnessing the actual first time. The story has a great deal of suspense, and some action. If you enjoy Mychael Black's and Shayne Carmichael's previous works, 2050 is sure to become one of your favorites."

Fallen Angel Reviews review of Zoe Nichols' "Lost"

April gave Zoe's paranormal erotic romance 4 Angels.

"Zoe Nichols proves herself with this short novella. "Lost" is about two men who have to face their demons and they both find that facing them together is better than facing them alone. Both characters were relatable, even Ethan who had a special ability to find missing people. I found myself wanting to know a bit more about each man's past and especially about Ethan's ability. Also Eric's mother, Deborah, drives the story forward. Her story will want to keep you reading. Zoe Nichols definitely has a handle on Deborah and her story. The fact that it's told through Ethan's eyes only brings the story together in a way that may not have been achievable otherwise. Lost is a solid 4 Angels for me!"

The Romance Studio review of Jane Leopold Quinn's "The Keeper"

Dee Dailey gave Jane's hot tale 5 Hearts! Nice job!

"Jane Leopold Quinn weaves an intricate story of a woman who's had to win any sense of security she could the hard way. This is a hopeful tale for women everywhere who've had a childhood like Sharon's. No matter how much she was beaten down she never gave up. The people whose love she craved never knew how to give it. Others did and she was able to turn her life around.

It's great to watch the author build this story into something really special. It's a wonderful reinforcement to a belief that people should never give up on love. "

The Romance Studio review of M. Christian's Licks and Promises: An Erotic Collection

Sky gave M.'s steamy tale 5 Hearts! Great job, M.!

"Licks and Promises takes the reader across the country and back in a series of erotic vignettes about love in its many aspects.

This was my first M. Christian book and I will definitely read more. The depth of sensuality in each story, the attention to each sense, sight, sound, taste, takes the reader right into the room with the characters. His imagery is simply breathtaking.

I recommend this book to anyone who likes a sexy story with substance. Particularly if you don’t mind a little laughing and crying while reading a great book. "

Joyfully Reviewed review of Michelle Houston's "Kinky Girls Do"

Barb said:
""Kinky Girls Do" is a collection of four short stories that each look at dominance and submission differently. All are well written and the characters are excellently portrayed. The women each come out strong and classy while still being true to themselves. The different styles of the relationships were able to maintain a strong tie to each other while maintaining differences. "Kinky Girls Do" gets your attention and keeps it. It is a book that has hooked me on Michelle Houston’s writing style and I will be looking for more of her books to read in the future."

Joyfully Reviewed review of Marty Rayne's "Journey To the Dark Side"

Indy said:

"In a story where the hero is able to be strong, yet sill submissive in a way that doesn’t make him come off as weak, "Journey to the Dark Side" is an intense thriller packed in a petite package. Monica is relaxed with the BDSM lifestyle, even though she’s not an active participant in the scene. Her looseness sets the tone for the story, which kept me riveted because of the sexual play that at times was downright gripping. The intrigue on who the actual killer was always kept me on a slight edge. I really enjoyed Marty Rayne’s delve into this world, where sometimes pain and pleasure are but one in the same."

Joyfully Reviewed review of Kate Burns' "Into The Heat"

Tanya said:

""Into the Heat" is a ‘smokin hot’ romance about two smoke jumpers. I enjoyed Kate Burns' descriptions about the gear and the set ups for fire watching. The story is fast paced and you are able to see a lot of what Delia is thinking, both her insecurities and as well as her desires. "Into the Heat" is a great break from the normal men/women in uniform romances and worth your read."

Joyfully Reviewed review of Audra and Stella Price's Glamour

Jo said:

"Glamour invites us into the world of Janey and Marsh, the assassin and Djinn couple. It is fast moving, kinky and hot enough to scorch the pages. I enjoy the darker side of romance and I admit that I have fallen for this couple. I highly recommend this book to anyone that enjoys the darker side of romance and series books. I personally can’t wait for the next visit from Janey and Marsh and their next adventure.

Glamour can be read as a stand alone, but I personally would recommend that you read "Wishes" first and discover just how Janey and Marsh came together."

Joyfully Reviewed review of Audra and Stella Prices' Gifts

Jo said:
"Gifts is the third book in the Djinn series and this time Janey and Marsh face something even worse than the worst type of criminal – family. Janey learns that being the consort and bride of this particular Djinn is much more than it seems and together they learn that fate is giving them a very special gift. You would expect a top assassin and a Djinn to be uncaring in what goes on around them, but I have never found this to be so with Janey and Marsh. In Gifts I found out exactly how much they do love each other and the lengths they both will go to for the other. Of course there was the violence to go along with the love and passion, but what else can you expect when you have a loving consort who is a top assassin and an ages old Djinn who has finally fallen for a woman and will protect what’s his. For those following Janey and Marsh and their courtship, Gifts is a can’t-miss-book because of everything you will learn. However, if this is your first Djinn book, I believe you will definitely want to go back and find the others once you’ve read Gifts. I can’t wait until the next chapter of Janey and Marsh’s journey as they head toward their happily ever after."

Joyfully Reviewed review of Jade Falconer's Ghost Of A Chance

Cassie said:
"Ghost of a Chance is a cute fish-out-of-water story with ghosts added in for a little spice. I couldn’t help but like Ryan, who’s unapologetic about what he is—a gay, tattooed California boy who has no idea what he’s doing as an Earl in Scotland. I felt for him when he tried to hide his growing feelings for James and just stay friends. It would have been nice to get more of a window into James’ feelings. If you like ghosts and will they/won’t they stories, Ghost of a Chance is a fun story with a nice romance."

Joyfully Reviewed review of Jade Falconer's "Eye Of The Beholder"

Ley said:

"Two men from two different worlds prove that opposites certainly do attract in Jade Falconer’s "Eye of the Beholder." This was a fantastic story. Victor is very soft and delicate in appearance but don’t let appearances fool you, Victor has a weapon in his words. But I found Victor’s attitude was his way of protecting himself, in reality he was very insecure about his art, and how people may perceive him, but he was not one to show that on the outside. Ben was awesome! He’s this big beautiful brawny construction worker who has nothing in common with someone like Victor except that he also could not see his own worth. I like them together because they had a special love without being schmaltzy. Normally I love the sweet and mushy romances but it would not have fit for Victor and Ben. Ms Falconer did a great job with these characters and I enjoyed reading "Eye of the Beholder.""
