The Romance Reviews review of Sapphire Phelan's "Dark Leopard Magic"

Kenjii H. gave this paranormal romance 4 Stars.

"The author gives this shifter romance a voice all its own. The characters are well written and have to quickly (but believably) develop for the pace of the story. The first few paragraphs capture your attention. Lyrical and poetic style mixed with dark romance and sex draw you into the characters' world immediately...I really enjoyed this gay shifter interracial romance. All the elements blended and felt right...I loved reading "Dark Leopard Magic" and look forward to more from this author."

BDSM Book Reviews review of Jade Falconer's "Making Magic - New Orleans"

Kirsten gave this Urban Phaze tale a rating of 8 out of 10.

""Making Magic" was a fun little story with enough kink to make me happy. As for the writing elements, the plot was a bit different and provided interest. Pacing was fine. Prose and dialogue were fine...World-building was nicely done, explaining the way the magic felt and acted. Those who prefer the "kinder gentler" form of BDSM should be comfortable with the sex and power play in "Making Magic."

BDSM Book Reviews review of Mychael Black's "The Next Step"

Kirsten gave this M/M erotic romance a rating of 9 out of 10.

"If you enjoy medical scenes then you will certainly enjoy the play that these two characters engage in...Pacing is well done. Prose and dialogue are fine. Character development is consistent with the previous book ("Onyx") and is fine for the parts of their lives that we are privy to. It was a fun (and hot) little read, and I was pleased to discover more about this couple beyond what we were given in "Onyx."

Rainbow Reviews review of Jade Falconer's "Use Your Illusion"

Sally Sapphire gave this M/M erotic romance 4.5 Stars.

"Considering its length (about 30 pages), Ms. Falconer manages to accomplish quite a bit with this story...I absolutely loved this story...The awkwardness between our young lovers is played out beautifully, and their sexual explorations are almost perfect in their blen of the wonder and eroticism. You come to care for both characters very quickly...Overall, this is definitely an experience worth sharing, and a book that will make you smile long after you've put it down. Wholeheartedly recommended!"

Manic Readers review of Shermaine Williams' "The Second Challenge"

Patrizia Murray gave this sequel 4.5 Stars.

"Someone in my writing group said that she could never write erotica because she couldn't figure out any different ways to insert Tab A into Slot B. She should read "The Second Challenge" to figure it out. It's not just the inserting, it's the feelings, the word pictures of what's going on, the descriptions of everything from how the sheets feel against Amanda's back to how she walks differently with a corset on, so that one almost feels the touches and kisses that out hero and heroine are experiencing...I will look for more stories from this author in the future. Keep up (and I mean that in every sense of the word) the good work."

Elisa Rolle review of G.A. Hauser's All Man

Elisa said:

"I noticed that in her last works G.A. Hauser has tuned down a bit her bad heroes, making them probably less (extreme), while in any case preserving that tad bit of selfishness that makes them unique...I like Chase's attitude towards Gary...Looking more or less for a way to get off in a safe way, they have instead found love and the Mr. Right in each other."

"Brenna Lyons takes a creative shot with "Beldon" and hits the bull's eye. Wow. I can't say enough good things about this story but I'll do my best. The futuristic setting offers freshness to the subject by blowing away dust that's settled on the mythos...I was mesmerized, engulfed, by the narrative..."Beldon" is a superb, lustrous narrative with a mountain of promise that I definitely would suggest to anyone who believes in angels (or aliens) or craves a different type of sci-fi romance...Once again, this author has lived up to her considerable talent. I look forward to reviewing and reading more from the "Sons of Heaven" series."

The reviewer gave the story a rating of 7 and the presentation a rating of 8, giving this M/M interracial paranormal romance a total of 15.

""Healing the Beast Within" was an entertaining read. The most notable positives are that the history is described, the curse is explained and in the end all the loose ends are tied up so that i was satisfied with the conclusion. The sex was smoking and a total turn on...The descriptions of the beast and the reactions to it were intense...You'll totally love how Keith and Marcell interact with each other.

The Romance Reviews review of Kev Henley's Lichess

Paige gave Kev's first Phaze Books release 5 Stars! Way to go!

"Wow, I'm positive I've found an author to add to my favorite authors list! This novella had so many interesting situations and the story was so amazing, like nothing I have ever heard before that it would feel wrong to go into the full details. This is a novella where readers would really need to sit back and read and involve themselves in the story to enjoy...My, my, my! This novella was surprisingly amazing. The erotic elements in this erotic novella were used to complement the story, unlike other erotic romances that I've read...Basically I thought this book had it all for my tastes-sensuality, love, danger, fear, strength, discussions, action, etc...I can't wait for more novellas or novels of enjoyable complexity from Kev Henley!"

Ebook Addict review of "Phaze Binary Stars 7: Light My Fire and Dr. Feelgood"

Kathy K. said:

"I really enjoy anthologies and duets (2-stories-in-1) because so often when I get a multi-author & story book for an author that are a must-have - Jack Green - I discover new authors - in this case Jade Falconer - and her gem of a story. So now there's another author to add to my gotta-get list. Phaze's Binary Stars series of books are wonderful for this reason as well as two short stories that are always wonderful, easy-to-read entertainment. As far as I'm concerned, you just can't go wrong with any of the Binary Stars books. "Light My Fire" by Jade Falconer: Short, sexy as all get out and very, very sweet. Oh and did I mention sexy?..I'm definitely going to be on the lookout for more stories by Jade Falconer after reading this little treasure..."Dr. Feelgood" by Jack Greene: Whoo hee...is it hot in here or what? A great story to read when the weather's a little cooler 'cause I certainly don't need a jacket any more. Once again Jack Greene has tantalized with his story-telling."

You can't not get involved, emotionally or mentally, with the people that she writes about; there's something so real and so interesting about them that they will appeal to a wide range...What a treat!"
