About Eva Gale

Eva Gale loves white cupcakes with bitter chocolate frosting, lots of dark roast coffee and six-foot piles of books. She would prefer them all at once, but she takes what she can get. She lives in the farmlands of NJ, with her husband and seven children whom they homeschool. They have one doofus Doberman, a Yellow Naped Amazon named Gizmo, two cats and two Blackberry Hamsters named Mac and PC but are looking to add chickens, guinea hens, bees and Lancashire Heelers to their collection. When she’s not guiding school, she’s writing, weeding the garden or doing endless loads of dishes and laundry.

Good work on integrating the back story and the main story.
I admit I read this one because it sounded like a similar premise to one of the shorts in my new collection, and I wanted to see how other people handled that situation...but my goodness, you took it very differently! That second-chapter twist (no spoilers!) really turns it on its head and piqued my interest.
There's quite a darkness here as well, isn't there - I mean, sure it starts a bit rape-y, until the twist undermines all that...but the relationship has still got an interesting, dark undercurrent going. So much so that I wanted to uncover a bit more about their history.

Compelling!

An easy story to get into and be carried along by as it is deeper and more well written than the average tale in this genre.

I thought the premise of the story was beautiful, and the author did a great job of easing us into the back story giving the characters depth and not just having them be all about sex. Decent story. There was only one typo and a few other choice words that kind of threw me. Overall, a good short story.

I really enjoyed this short read. The beginning was making me nervous but once the story unfolded it got hotter because of the back story.

I really enjoyed this short story. I thought the storyline was going to be very typical but I loved the plot twist and found myself wanting more, especially details of the back story. It was kind of hard to imagine the couple had relationship problems, so as a longer read, this would have been perfect.

So this was a quick, short and fun read of about 20 pages. At first I wasn't a at all sure I like where the story was going, as I thought the stories hero was too alpha male and really inappropriate so it was a nice twist to find out that it was actually a role-play between him and his wife. It was a sexy quick read, and there was a nice backstory for why him and his wife were indulging in more risque activities than usual. Of course it is difficult in 20 pages to give much of a story and I know that the focus of the book was on the erotica, but I would like to have seen a little more backstory as to why the couple had problems in their relationship. There wasn't much indication given as to why they had nearly divorced or whether their therapist had suggested the role-playing idea. So a little more information thrown in would have been nice, but it was a fun, quick read, and the author has a good writing style which I would like to see more of in a longer book

I suppose one should not expect classic literature from a free short story, but I was fairly underwhelmed by this...

Review by: Michelle Birbeck on Nov. 20, 2012 :
I’ve read another short by Eva Gale, The Seduction of Gabriel Stewart, and loved it enough that I went and downloaded the rest of the books she had on offer. This was one of them. And though it wasn’t quite up to the same standard as Hysteria and The Seduction of Gabriel Stewart, it was a very enjoyable read.

The twist in the middle caught me by surprise, and the heat between the couple was fantastic. In fact, the only complaint I had was that I thought the ending seemed a bit rushed.

Other than that, I would say go download it now! Great if you want something short and hot.

I really liked this so much! It was very intense and the twist in the end made it so tender =P Nice job with all the scenes. I do not usually read heterosexual erotica because i am gay but this one made me hard. =P

Ebook description
On the hottest day of the summer Kathy Robert's airconditoner breaks at her barber shop, Great Headz, and she still has one more customer. It's hot and sticky, but he's not going anywhere. And he wants more than a trim.

My Thoughts

Kathy and her last customer of the day burn up the pages in this very short tale. It has a twist to the story that lovers of second chance at romance will enjoy as well as some very sexy scenes between Kathy and her "customer"!
I enjoyed this free read and think that as a way to get warm on a cool windy winter weekend it did it's job pretty well.

Review by: Leopold Birkholm on Sep. 06, 2011 :
It is an erotic novel and I liked it. Well written with a good story baseline about how to spark up a flare in a relationship that after years gets dimmed down.

If you like relationship dramas and such, I recommend you to read this book.

Kind regards

Wonderfully romantic, erotic and real. The eroticism was beautifully graphic without being bogged down by over detail.

What I liked most about this ebook is that the author understands why her audience chooses stories like this one. It's hot (no pun intended), a fun length, a fun theme, and though the editing could have been a hair tighter, I can easily see why this title has such high download stats.

Review by: Slayermel on May 09, 2010 :
I really enjoyed this short story! I loved the fact that there was a back story along with the hot steamy sex; sometimes this can be lost in erotic novels. I also loved the fact of how realistic the story was. I have to agree 100% with Amber Dawn’s review; this short story has the potential for a full length erotic novel. Well Done!

Review by: Asrai Devin on Jan. 06, 2010 :
The characters had a nice chemistry between them as their story unfolds. The sex was very well done. The author has a nice mix between build up inside the characters and the actual physical motions they go through. There was also a nice mash-up of back story of the characters and what they were going through during the story.

Review by: Amber Dawn on April 30, 2009 :
With '101 Degrees Fahrenheit' Eva has captured something special in a working relationship. Eva has a wonderful way with words that draws you into the whole picture. As a short story this piece is complete, but has so much potential for a full lenght novel. For a quick pick me up or to get away from the real world 101 Degrees Fehrenheit is the perfect getaway with a touch of realism to keep you grounded and see that a relationship is worth fighting for. This is a must read that can even help you get some hot ideas.
