Smashwords book reviews by Vladimir Duran

  • Ultra on April 06, 2013

    I read the story that comes right after this one because it was free and had to go back and read the first. The sex is hot and very detailed but now I really want to know where the larger story is going. It's got a crossover event feel to it.
  • Prophet on April 06, 2013

    This really reminded me of the killing joke but mixed in with under the the red hood. I'm intrigued. I'll have to but the one that takes place before this one.
  • Coconut Milk on April 06, 2013

    Oddly romantic but very detailed and sexy.
  • Shared Bath on April 06, 2013

    I wish there was a girl like this in real life.
  • Princess Brides on April 06, 2013

    Sweetly romantic but with some really nice hardcore BDSM moments.
  • Blindfolded on April 06, 2013

    I didn't know what to expect with a story that had no sense of sight for most of it but the author pulled it off.
  • Seven Deadly Sins on April 07, 2013

    Awesome! Like a sampler pack of erotica. A little bit of everything.
