But, they were both on Santa's "Naughty not Nice" list. And if they don't get away now, the couple might never get this chance again. Looks like Santa will have to dig deep into his bag to give these two a very special gift. This sweet-and-steamy short story will make you ask for a gift too.                                                        BOOK REVIEW Dominic definitely got me. This novelette was romantic, spicey, and just what I needed to perk me up today. It can be hard to make an impact on listeners or readers with short stories. However, this one has me yearning for more. The passion and romance displayed between Dominic and his wife were written perfectly. I think the author did a good job of executing their love story. The narrator also did a good job of giving e

Desired or Dominated?

Desired or Dominated? by Criss Carr My rating: 4 of 5 stars Where can I sign up for the Desired or Dominated package? This was a hot erotic tale with love and little drama mixed in with it. This story is about Brielle discovering her worth and having no choice but to accept what comes with that discovery. Solo was all Alpha and secure enough to be vulnerable to Brielle and admit his true feelings. And I felt every word he said right down to my.....well, I felt every word (smile). I really can't say too much without giving up too much of the story. So, I will tell you that this Author did her research on the "scenes", the story was well formatted and outlined and you had a story with clit throbbing sex. And not just sex scenes with a little bit of story thrown around it. The characters were well-written as well. I would love to see ho Tangie is doing after the revelations of the book and how she was able to move on and find her HEA. (hint hint) Great job

This Juicy Story!: The Untold Chapter of Sapphiree Secrets

This Juicy Ass Story!: The Untold Chapter of Sapphiree Secrets by Sapphiree Secrets My rating: 4 of 5 stars This erotic short gave it to us quick and dirty..... and then snatched it away. The story was descriptive in a way that put you right in the mix of things. I could almost feel every lick, slurp, moan and thrust. I hope she takes this and gives her readers a full novel or even novella. This could serve as a good precursor to read with your significant other for a steamy, sweaty even that leaves you both with the best kinds of aches the next day. Enjoy! View all my reviews

Nasty

Nasty by Octavia Grant My rating: 5 of 5 stars "The Color of Lust This tale almost made me come undone. It began with two being company, but three being fun between Melvin, Veronica & Sabrina. With the introduction of a scenario that will come up at some point in most adult relationships- a threesome - is the catalyst to the events that followed. We get to see how many of the characters are connected in a very "nasty" way. The tale evolved from a threesome into an in-law believing she was all someone else needed. The step she took to "tire out" the spouse of her love interest gave me an "oh no she didn't moment". She set out to stake her claim no matter the cost. Thinking that character took the cake, I was quickly corrected by the introduction of a true nympho and "leader" of her flock. "Anal sex was not designed for lovemaking. It was designed for savagery and that is what I needed at the moment." And

Spilled Milk Situations

Spilled Milk Situations: Urban Erotic Tales  by  Senoj the Writer My rating:  4 of 5 stars This is a collection of erotic shorts that gives you tiny snippets into the lives of ten women and the intense sexual situations that either enhance or disrupt their lives. Through the author's very descriptive writing style, you are thrust into each scene. Of course, you aren't going to have developed characters or much in the way of a story, because it is all about the "action" and out"cum". This is something I would read to my partner as foreplay to our own spilled milk situation. View all my reviews

No Attachment No Entanglement

No Attachment No Entanglement  by  L.P. Henson My rating:  2.5 of 5 stars This was the story of two sisters and the fallout from decisions they make to seduce and scheme. There are several characters to keep up with so pay attention. One sister is paid to seduce her lover's wife. Another assumes a stolen identity and seduces a husband she sets her sights on shortly after arriving at her new place of "employment". The characters and plot were interesting. Unfortunately, due to the lack of proper editing (developmental, line, and copy), I found it extremely difficult to complete. This story has the potential to be a good erotic read. I would love to see this book re-edited and then re-released to accurately reflect the author's talent. View all my reviews

Chemical [se]X 2: just one more

Chemical [se]X 2: just one more  by  Oleander Plume My rating:  4 of 5 stars A collection of erotic stories with two common themes sex & chocolate. Several authors came together to give us several steamy stories set in various scenarios. There is literally something for everyone. I enjoyed each story, but I think Beast is my favorite. It was different from what you would expect to find when you think of erotica. Each author paints a steamy, orgasmic tale that will leave you ready for more. I'm going to go back and read Volume 1 to see where Oleander Plume's idea originated. I recommend you grab your copy of both, your partner, some chocolate and call it night.

Desired or Dominated?: Master Solo

Desired or Dominated?: Master Solo by Criss Carr My rating: 4 of 5 stars I was ready to revisit Solo and his world. The character development and story progression were solid. We had an opportunity to see what happened after lust, love, and commitment. Solo's past came back to disrupt his life and it was entertaining and drama filled. I loved every minute of it. Add in Markel's comedy interludes and it was almost too much. The author did a great job in executing this sequel that segued into Love Dungeon. View all my reviews
