Smashwords book reviews by DarkSunshine

  • Bloodraven on Jan. 28, 2011

    The book starts off with real sexual brutality but if you’re able to continue reading past the first few chapters, you are going to enjoy the story. Yhalen is nothing like a good submissive slave and struggle to survive and to deal with his feeling toward Bloodraven and his own dark side. And we get to see past Bloodraven’s brutal ogre side as he is growing increasingly fond and proud of his little human. I loved following the slow and delicate building of their relationship, through a very convincing plot toward a satisfying end. The story was excellent, I am reading it again for the third time!
  • Sunstroked on Jan. 28, 2011

    A good one to enjoy ! I usually don't find myself rating high not-short-but-not-so-long novels (I am into the > 120 000 words) but this story was perfectly set. All the nice ingredients are set - werewolves, attraction, sexual pleasures and inner struggles... I loved following the delicate building of the characters relationship, with many turns (some I did'nt see coming) toward a satisfying end. The story was excellent, a book I will read again !
  • In The Dark (Flaming Hot Erotic Gay BDSM) on Jan. 28, 2011

    Short and very effective story ! I liked it, very well written and detailed, but don't expect any plot behind vivid and fascinating descriptions of this dark experience...
  • Master and Me on Jan. 28, 2011

    Very short story - so don't expect any plot beyond the setting of the encounter. The whole purpose of the novel seems to be the compilation of a few sexual pleasures descriptions. In my view, it lacked some insights into the characters inner thoughts, motivations and desires. A pleasant and recreational reading, but nothing more.
  • The Reluctant Escort on Jan. 28, 2011

    I didn't really enjoy this short story - and I think that for the same price I could have end up with one (or two) more enjoyable short stories. I didn't find the setting very convincing and I didn't find the few erotic descriptions enjoyable. I must admit it may be because I was not really confortable with the whole setting - Lee finds overbearing his mate wish to a committment and ends up in bed for a one night stand with a transvestite actor cheating on his manager-lover...
  • Fire Season on Jan. 28, 2011

    I read this book after buying, reading and loving Sunstroked. This was no deception ! The story was perfectly set with attraction, pleasures and inner struggles... I loved following the delicate building of the characters relationship, with some turns I did'nt see coming toward a satisfying end. The story was excellent, a book I will read again ! I will keep buying Lexinston other works...
  • Hot Water on Feb. 24, 2011

    This is the third book from Lex Valentine and I have not been disappointed. The all series es awesome. The story is excellent and I fell in love with the characters. A book I have already read twice again...
  • Shifting Winds on Feb. 24, 2011

    I highly recommend the all series. This book is in the same vein, an excellent story, interesting plot and characters, including good descriptions of their inner struggles and pleasures...
  • Kei's Gift (Darshian Tales #1) on March 01, 2011

    I read by chance some months ago a book wrote by Ann Somerville and loved it. This one didn’t disappoint me. The story is excellent, full of suspense, with a profound and touching lovestory. The characters are unique and their strong emotions and inner struggles so well described you can’t help falling in love with the story. Once you began reading it, you won’t be able to put it down, a feeling you get how many times you read it ! I highly recommend this book and the other ones related (Bearing Fruit, Homeground and Staying Power).
  • Different Senses on March 01, 2011

    I read this book after buying (and loving) “Kei’s gift” and the other books related. I found this one very good, with an excellent plot, a lot of suspense, the whole in a complex world created by the author. Why I didn’t rate 5 stars (like for the author’s other books) ? I confess I would have liked a little more emphasis on the characters emotions. The story focuses on the plot (which is really well made) and the series of investigations the main character (a former policeman who ended as a private detective) whereas I found that the building of the main characters relationship deserved a little bit more focus… Still, I spend a good time reading it !
  • Staying Power (Darshian Tales #3) on March 01, 2011

    I read this book after buying (and loving) “Kei’s gift” and this second generation book didn’t disappoint me ! I loved the main characters, and they are so well written, you will empathize with them throughout the story. I've already read it many times and each time you get the same strong emotions and warm feeling. Ann Somerville is definitively an imaginative storyteller with well-developed characters and lovely plots. Definitely a wonderful story to read when you have a good amount of time on you hands, you won't want to put it down!
  • Home Ground (Darshian Tales #4) on March 01, 2011

    I read this book after buying (and loving) “Kei’s gift” and the second generation book “Staying Power”. This one is like the third generation book and you will find again well written characters and an imaginative world.
  • Faewolf, by D.M. Atkins and Chris Taylor on March 01, 2011

    You know you've read an amazing story when you're sad to see it end. This is quite a long read and yet it's not long enough. The main characters are well written and I loved following the slow and delicate building of their relationship, through a very convincing plot toward a satisfying end (the whole spiced with hot sex scenes !). The story was excellent, I am reading it again for the third time!
  • A Prophecy of Destiny on March 30, 2011

    I love werewolves romance and this book did satisfy me ! Interesting characters and shapeshifter dynamics, a gripping plot interwoven with some hot sex scenes. I found the main characters very well written so I wished the story would go a little further and longer. Still a nice story !
  • The Vampire and the Man-Eater on March 30, 2011

    The main characters are fascinating and well written and the plot threads all nicely connect. I loved following the slow and delicate building of their relationship (the whole spiced with hot sex scenes !). I don't grant 5 stars only because I wish the tension would have been kept a little longer on their inner struggles... A great story !
  • The Keeper on March 30, 2011

    Great story. The plot is interesting and the pacing excellent. The characters are fascinating and well written and the tension in the building of their romance is kept at the perfect level. I don't rate 5 because I expected a kind of "struggle part" when Hadi meets Dhakir. I found Hadi accepted quite too well and too quikly to my liking the fact that he had to sacrifice the whole life that was his until now. I must confess I love seing the main characters struggling a little before setting in their romance relationship ! Still you will find all the necessary tension and plot in this story.
  • London, Bloody, London: yet another novel with bite! on March 30, 2011

    Interesting characters and a gripping plot interwoven with hot sex scenes... but the story didn't really get to me, maybe because I am more into classical happy ending. I got the feeling that the story ended without climax and real ending. Still a good read but I doubt I will found myself opening it again.
  • Puppy Love on March 30, 2011

    BDSM is not my style but this is not the main side of the story. This is a truly delicate and romantic story (of course spiced with hot sex scenes !), very well written. The charaters are truly touching, I could not stop reading the trilogy. I found myself hesitating at the end of this book, because I thought Petey deserved a happier ending... which I found in the following books. The building of their relationship is so well written, with deep struggles and sweet moments... you won't put the book down ! Definitly a serie to read !
  • Puppy Love 2: Building a Family on March 30, 2011

    BDSM is not my style but this is not the main side of the story. This is a truly delicate and romantic story (of course spiced with hot sex scenes !), very well written. The charaters are truly touching, I could not stop reading the trilogy.

The building of their relationship is so well written, with deep struggles and sweet moments... you won't put the book down ! Definitly a serie to read !
  • Puppy Love 3: Reawakening on March 30, 2011

  • Dockalfar on March 30, 2011

    I loved Bloodraven and Dynasty Of Ghosts and was about to put P.L.Nunn into my tiny "just buy everything the author writes" box, till I read this book. The building of the plot and the imaginative world is truly impressive but I found the characters relationship not deepened enough. In my view this book, on the contrary to the others ones I read from the same author, is missing a true romance, with the delicate tensions and inner struggles in the building of a relationship that P.L.Nunn write so well.
