The B designation in entertainment usually comes with a less-than-positive connotation. B-grade movies are typically low-budget affairs with poor acting and cheesy plots; the B-side of a record was always an album cut used as filler to back the A-side hit single. The B stuff is the stuff that doesn't quite make the grade.
That isn't always the case. Some B movies, after late-night viewing

Smashwords book reviews by Carl Hose
- Checkmate and Other Stories
on Dec. 16, 2010
This is a hot little collection of entertaining stories like glittering jewels. I love the descriptions. Icy chooses words that are not always used -- she avaoids the common. Her characters ring with truth. She has a talent for the written word. This collection of tales would be worth paying for -- it's certainly worth reading for free.
- Confessions of a Sorority Girl: Interracial Delight
on Oct. 05, 2011
The writing is top notch. Detailed, but more than a simple wham-bam-thank-you-ma'am. That can get boring. This writer has the skill to write sex without making it boring. Hot descriptions, fun characters. A good story. I'd read more.
- Sexual Healing
on Oct. 28, 2011
I would recommend reading Max. This story was phenomenal. The sex scenes were hot, not overly described, and approached in a fresh, extremely enticing manner. But there's more. This story is just that -- a story. I was caught by surprise by the ending, which I won't divulge here. Throughout, I was drawn in by the mystery of the story, and the main female character was simply an arousing creation. I worked for several years as a chemical substance abuse technician and found the dramatic subject matter here was dealt with realistically. Great story by an accomplished writer.
- Zombie Tea Party
on Nov. 03, 2011
The collection of stories contained in "Zombie Tea Party" vary in length and depth. I all cases, these are gruesome stories of life after death for some and survival for others. The writing is descriptive, the stories entertaining and written well. While one or two of them ended too soon, even these were enjoyable as slice-of-life zombie apocalypse pieces. A couple of the stories stood out for me, including "Caution, Smoke Ahead," and "Sanctuary." I particularly enjoyed reading an excerpt of the upcoming novella from this author, "Dying Days." The excerpt whet my appetite for more of the book, which promises to quite cool. The main female lead is going to be fun and the story starts with a bang. Overall, "Zombie Tea Party" is a good read for zombie fans and the upcoming novella will be more of the same.
- Down on the Beach
on Nov. 03, 2011
The title is an excellent play on words for the story content. Excellent writing, hot, sexy, descriptive. This author does more for character development and sexual narrative in just under a couple of thousand words than most do with a novel. The story served to make me want to read more from this author. While this one was free, I would gladly spend money to read more from Alessisa Brio. This is what erotic writing should be.
- Loving Siblings: Mitch & Lorelai
on Nov. 19, 2011
I have good and bad to say about this book. First the bad. The author has a distinct problem with commas. There were misplaced commas throughout the book, breaking the rhythm of the story. There were also shifts in tense, often within the same paragraph, again making it hard to read. Finally, there were typos that could have been taken care of with some editing. Normally, when I get a book and start noticing errors in mechanics, typos, etc, I simply put the book aside. That brings me to the good points here. The story was so intriguing, with such well-rounded characters, that I forced myself to wade through the poor mechanics to find out how the story turned out. I wasn't disappointed. Great story with a great ending. I'm happy I ignored the flaws to get to the heart of the matter. Mechanics and grammar can be taught. Telling a great story is something that comes natural. While this author needs work on the technical side, she can tell a very good story. I would like to read more of her taboo work, but would hope to see a more efficient technical presentation. I can't give five stars to a book with this many technical errors. I can rate it on story only. A better handle on the technical side of writing would have gotten this one a five.
- Summer Shorts 2
on Nov. 27, 2011
This is a collection of three short stories loosely tied together. A follow up to the original, much shorter, Summer Shorts, this collection offers a blistering peek into the sex lives of some residents of a town called Carnal. The stories are well written, with fresh, sexy descriptions of the sex acts and characters that have unique personalities. The concept is good, as well as the writing. I would enjoy reading more from this author.
- Dying Days
on Jan. 12, 2012
Are you a fan of AMC's "Walking Dead?" I am. I absolutely love the show, which is why I was so taken by "Dying Days." This book offers a world and a set of characters with the same feel as "Walking Dead." What I particularly like about it, as I do with "Walking Dead," is the fact that the characters stand out more than the zombies. This makes for a more rounded story. Don't get me wrong. There are plenty of zombies here, they just don't overshadow the survivors. That's a plus. I was drawn immediately into the story and enjoyed it from start to finish. Armand creates a post apocalyptic zombie world that is familiar to the genre, yet fresh enough to make it interesting. This is a book I would recommend for the serious zombie fan -- Carl Hose, author of "Dead Rising" and "Dead Horizon."
