[Ms. Scott] can weave a vivid tale of lust and love, bringing together lovers for casual sex or eternal devotion. I generally like her style. . .it's good, quick erotic fiction."
-- Traction_Bob / B&N Review
"I read the middle story of AFF (Jack in the Box), which I loved. I am looking forward to the others. You are not obscene as far as I can see. You write about emotion. . .you have something very original and very contemporary."

Excerpt (from Story #1, Wicked Lovely):
I felt like an animal, and animals don't know sin, do they?
Excerpt (from Story #2, Swiss Miss):
Andy gave a sideward glance to Christina, a little nauseous, a little delirious, wrongly thinking that her image in real life might counter the image he was entertaining in his head. He felt so off-center. He was supposed to be a young professional, not a blistering fool in the company of his own non-blood-related relative, who happened to be waking all the cells in his blood.
Excerpt (from Story #5, Spinning Around):
Deryk was in New York to show his support for Aimee--she'd made it through the auditions for Fashion Icon, where would-be designers would compete for the chance to showcase their collection at NY Fashion Week, with the first place winner walking away with $100,000 to use as seed money to start their own fashion line.
He walked into the casino to gamble away the images in his mind. Everything seemed to happen in that past week. It seemed like he hadn't been living all this while, only existing in a bubble he didn't even know he was trapped in.
Jess's literary work has appeared in a diverse range of publications, such as Word Riot, ITCH Magazine, and The Battered Suitcase.
