Erotica Revealed review of Broadly Bound

Jean Roberta gave this upcoming BDSM collection two thumbs up!

"The sex is these stories is hot and consistent with the plots and the personalities involved. A mood of generous good humor prevails, regardless of how many hands and other implements land on how many bottoms. Although in some ways, Broad Horizons seems too good a place to be real, a sense of community is conveyed by the real-life teamwork of the five authors.

Paradoxically, the BDSM in this collection transcends gender, but it can enhance the “queerness” of same-gender relationships, loosely speaking. And the reader, regardless of sexual plumbing or sexual orientation, is welcome to join in. You won’t regret it."

The Romance Studio review of Jennifer Mueller's History Lessons

Tabatha gave Jennifer's sensual romance 3 Hearts.

"Before the story is even started we get a lovely history lesson of our own. In fact much of this story is filled with rich history and much more of it seems to be about the people who filled the castle halls and called it home. We learn more about the castle and its history from first hand accounts, the stories told by the family take on their own life. With romance in the thirteen hundreds, a ghost who saves women in trouble, Vikings, marriages for love, and a romance between the heir apparent and a lovely art expert, this story has something for everyone. Jennifer Mueller has made history come to life in this interesting romance.

All in all it was a lovely and interesting story that I honestly enjoyed."

Literary Nymphs review of Wendy Stone's Charisma

Goddess Minx gave Wendy's fantasy erotic romance 4 Nymphs.

"Wendy Stone did a fantastic job of describing how the lives of different clans were able to function, and how their mating rituals were completed. I really enjoyed some of the secondary character’s contribution to the plot. There are surely more stories to tell of this interesting group, and I was very impressed with Samantha, who seemed bent on staying a single independent woman. This is the third of a series, and to understand the characters better, I recommend reading all of the books in order. I am looking forward to reading the next story by Ms. Stone and hoping, maybe, it will be about Samantha and Dimitri."

2nd Romance Junkies review of Marie Rochelle's Lucky Charms

Angel gave Marie's steamy romance 4.5 Blue Ribbons.

"LUCKY CHARMS is a great read and Jada and Patrick are awesome characters. This is a classic tale of friends becoming lovers and wondering if they can make it work. Jada is a strong willed character, but when she sets her mind on something she gives it her all. Patrick is the best friend every woman wants and the lover every woman needs. His courageous attitude to take a chance on the woman he cares about makes him a likable character. The plot is an old one, but Marie Rochelle knows how to turn old to new. This is definitely a story that her fans won’t want to miss."

Romance Junkies review of Marie Rochelle's Lucky Charms

jhayboy gave Marie's interracial romance 4 Blue Ribbons.

"Marie Rochelle knows her audience, LUCKY CHARM(S) is another of her fantastic sexually filled novellas that sets your blood a boil and you’ll enjoy every minute of it. Jada just wants a little happiness in her life with a man who appreciates her, while all Patrick wants is the one woman he desires above all else to look at him like he is the center of her world. With neither Patrick nor Jada dealing with the matter, it’s touch and go to see where they’ll end up with their friendship or if they take it a little further.

What can I say, I love everything this woman does –
LUCKY CHARM(S) is wonderful."

Coffee Time Romance review of Jae Knight's Surrender To The Night

Delane gave Jae's paranormal erotic romance 5 Coffee Cups! Way to go, Jae!

"This book is exotic and exciting with every turn of the page. Korrina is a wonderful character who although she is a creature of the night defends the innocent humans of the world. The contrast between the perception of good and evil is strategically accomplished with finesse. This book is definitely a keeper and well worth reading again and again."

Mrs. Giggles review of N's "Coquette"

Mrs. Giggles gave N's Phaze Fury a rating of 88.

""Coquette" is marketed as an erotica but to be honest, I'm not sure if I would call it a work of erotica since there is only one genuine sex scene in this story. It's a very hot one though, and I wish there is more. I don't want to say anything more about "Coquette" because there is a delightful twist in here that has to be read to be savored, so let just say that this story is more like something out of that old TV series Alfred Hitchcock Presents rather than a conventional erotica. If you want non-stop kink and sex, you may appreciate the hedonistic sexual background of the amoral Viktor but the amount of sex in this story probably won't be enough be enough to please readers looking for a smutty good read. But if you are looking for something dark and noirish with some explicit sex, "Coquette" may fit the bill.

I really enjoy this most amusing and twisted little romp. N, huh? I'll remember that name and keep an eye out for her future books."

""Breaking Skye" is...a well-written tale nonetheless with an attempt by the author to show me that the characters are in love as well as in lust.

Mrs. Giggles review of Bridget Midway's "Walls"

Mrs. Giggles gave Bridget's Phaze Sparkler a score of 84.

"Instead, Bridget Midway chooses to introduce a twist that, while not exactly unpleasant, effectively has this interesting potential romance being nipped in the bud. This twist means that readers looking for a romantic story in "Walls" will be very disappointed. What it does offer though is a heroine whose sass and often sardonic sense of humor will appeal to some and turn off other readers. If you like a quick read in-between Zane books, "Walls" may just be the thing for you."

Mrs. Giggles review of Jayelle Drewry's Waking Annabel

Mrs. Giggles gave Jayelle's steamy romance a score of 78.

"Waking Annabel is a simple straightfoward story of Jason wooing Annabel into his bed and into the rest of his life. Annabel is a pretty familiar heroine with the same old song about lousy exes who can't give her the big O. Jason is a pretty straightforward hero - he doesn't have many issues and he's just this nice guy who woos Annabel...it's an entertaining story nonetheless. Annabel doesn't act like a neurotic "All men must die because I married a bastard" caricature and she doesn't fight too hard to resist Jason. As a story of a woman being wined and dined and shagged to bliss by a man much better than her ex-husband, this one isn't bad at all."

Mrs. Giggles review of Eden Bradley's "Heatwave"

"There's romance, there is a heroine who is delightfully sexual and makes no apologies for it, and there is not one stupid "sexy romantic suspense" plot or psychic tormented sex-maniac lyncantrophic vampire in sight. It gets down and dirty without resorting to camp or purple prose. "Heatwave" is so far the closest to being my ideal romantic erotica."

Fallen Angels Review of Jenna Byrnes' "Hungry Heart"

Whitney gave this Phaze Rock tale 4 Angels.

"This story is well-written and interesting and investigates a professional conflict of interest between lovers and the trouble that this can cause to a relationship. Ms. Byrnes builds a suspense based on whether these two will choose love or career. However perfectly paired they are sexually – and they prove how good they are together repeatedly in this story – they won’t be able to survive as a couple without trust. Whether or not they can build this trust is a question that we ask ourselves as we read this story.
Overall, "Hungry Heart" is an enjoyable read. Ms. Byrnes has given us characters to care about and an interpersonal conflict that will keep us involved in the story. This is a satisfying conclusion to this series, and I am definitely interested to see what she comes out with next."

Fallen Angel Reviews review of Eon de Beaumont's "Heart Of Truth"

Teresa gave Eon's Phaze Rush tale 4 Angels.

"Eon De Beaumont has written a fast moving story with an intricate plot and characters who take over the story from the very start. I was fascinated by Cillian's ability to shapeshift. I loved how with a few minor changes he was able to escape from the palace with the emperor's assistance, that would have enraged him if he ever found out about it. The descriptions of each of the character's appearance brought them to life for the reader. I was fascinated how even though the story is set on a futuristic world, the different species have many characteristics that are similar to humans. These similarities allow the reader to enter the storyline and experience it with the characters in "Heart of Truth." Thanks go to Eon De Beaumont for a great read."

"This was a short little gem that told the story of a gay leopard shifter and how he believes he will be alone for the rest of his life. The sensual scene was smoking hot and both Brandon and Erik were personable characters that I was quick to feel an emotional connection to. While short in length "Embracing the Leopard" was anything but short on talent, something that Michelle Houston amply demonstrates here. I hope that there will be some more stories set in the Animal Attraction world."

April gave Jenna's contribution to the Slippery When Wet series 4 Angels.

"Damien Hall turned out to be a great character, very likeable and relatable even though. Damien has led an interesting, and sometimes disturbing, life, which only makes him that much more down to earth. His story after prison is somewhat tragic as well even though he may not see it that way at the beginning of the story. However, his personal growth begins in prison and doesn't end when he's out either. I love how every book in the Slippery When Wet series are all connected and Jenna Byrnes' contribution is a wonderful addition."

Romance Junkies review of Jade Falconer's Once In A Lifetime

Christina gave Jade's M/M erotic romance 3.5 Blue Ribbons.

"ONCE IN A LIFETIME is a companion piece to Jade Falconer’s earlier novel GHOST OF A CHANCE. Anyone who has read GHOST OF A CHANCE knows how this story is destined to end. This knowledge doesn’t takeaway from the charm and romance of the novel at al, in fact it added romance and emotion to the story. I found Percy’s story interesting. I appreciated that despite the era in which he grew up he assumed his right to find love and be happy. He never stopped believing that he and Alistair could share a life together. Alistair is also intriguing because he seems hard but as Percy discovered when one looks closely you can see how much he cares. Their relationship is spicy and extremely loving."

Phlox gave L.E.'s M/M erotic romance 4.5 Cherries.

"In the end, without giving too much away, Aneshu must face himself and his choices as both a man and the avatar of a living god. While this is not a traditional romance (boy meets, loses and regains boy) it is a fascinating twist on the pursuer/pursued plot line, sometimes dark and often tense, but with enough lighter moments to keep it from being bleak. Unlike some of Bryce’s recent stories, the ending here felt perfect, not rushed or abrupt. An excellent, engaging read, her return to high drama is something to be relished."

Rainbow Reviews review of Jenna Byrnes' "Never Say Goodbye: Slippery When Wet"

British Bull Dog gave Jenna's M/M erotic romance 4 Stars.

"I adored how Travis took charge and loved disbelieving Damien, he believed in the ex-con, even if Damien couldn’t. I wanted to slap Damien for not being able to open his eyes and see what Travis had to offer. But the reasons why Damien felt stuck were all too believable. Excellent characterization on Ms Byrnes part.

Earlier I said Damien was naïve, but funnily enough he believes that Travis is the naïve one, thinking that love would be enough to put a roof over their heads and food on their table. But Travis has a supportive family who would help, something that’s totally alien to Damien. However, just in the nick of time, Damien realizes “With you, I can do anything.”"

Matthew gave this story 4.5 Stars.

"The plot is a strong one, and moves at a good pace...there is a great 'catch-22' at the center of this plot.

That the volcano will erupt and completely obliterate the entire island is revealed in passages sprinkled throughout the story of a modern archeologist supervising an excavation on the island. And there is plenty of suspense in this tale.

Overall, a very enjoyable read."
