Smashwords book reviews by Susan MomBlogger

  • Monster Story on Oct. 12, 2011
    (no rating)
    Synopsis: Christy McCauley has returned to West Virginia at last, but her homecoming quickly turns into a surreal nightmare. In the deep hollows and woods of rural Augusta County, something unspeakable is slaughtering people in the dark of night. Authorities don't know if its human or animal, or how to stop it. Christy and her friends only know they must hunt it and destroy it, before it kills again. My Review: The action starts pretty much from the beginning of the book and continues all the way through. Clues are pretty easy to follow, and I figured out pretty quickly who the “Monster” was. Even though I could predict most of the story as I read along, I must confess that the ending was different than I expected. The author, McCarty Griffin, keeps the pages turning throughout the story and keeps the reader interested in what will happen in each chapter til the very end. I personally enjoyed reading the book, but was a bit let down with the ending. I felt it could have been done a bit better, but as I’m not a writer myself – I’m not sure how exactly that “better” could have been accomplished. Overall I give this a solid 4 out of 5. Great read!
  • Half-Inch on Oct. 13, 2011

    If you like murder, psychotic mean men, domestic violence, cheating, and revenge killings - then you might like this book! The main character, Pammy, has had it with her abusive soon-to-be ex-husband and his girlfriend(s) and decides to take revenge. She psych's herself up, talks herself into it, makes a plan and executes it; though not flawlessly of course. Although I personally did not care for this book (remember, my personal opinion is different than yours), I think it definitely would be interesting for others to read. You should read it for yourself to determine whether "Half-Inch" is a worthy book to read or not.
  • Shadow Cat - The Striped Ones: Book 1 (Shapeshifter Romance) on Feb. 08, 2012

    Intriguing, adventure in the jungle. Hot sexy man and a wehr-tiger in heat. A steamy mix when thrown together, struggling to survive. This book is well-written, and kept my interest from the first to the last. The different native vegetation being used as natural healers was a plus in this story. The only thing I wasn't too fond of was the weird "bad" thingy that was described sort of as a vampire type creature with no skin - YUCK. But, then that was part of the danger surrounding Berani's village and the "humans" in the jungle. This was different from anything I've read, and I enjoy reading shifter type stories that are different from the "normal". . . shifter meets female, has to have her . . . Give author Reena Jacobs' books a try! They are well worth reading!
  • Spell Checked on Feb. 26, 2012

    I was excited when I started reading Spell Checked. I love reading Paranormal Romances, and especially enjoy reading ones where the author has an original take or twist on what is considered "expected" behaviors. I love this authors ideas of what Witches and Vampires are like. I found this books to be entertaining, funny and romantic. The characters in the story are mostly likable, except I wasn't too thrilled with Mae's attitude at times. For a first book, I think C.G. Powell did quite well. I look forward to seeing what happens in book 2.
  • Brandon's Story - Control Freak: Book 1 (Erotica) on March 13, 2012

    Regina's at it again, trying to control her husband using sex as a weapon. This time, Brandon takes the initiative and teaches her a lesson. Regina and Brandon have two different approaches to sex, and it is causing problems in their marriage. Regina wants to use sex as a reward or punishment, and she wants rough sex. Brandon wants sex to be making love between a husband and wife, and he likes it slow and tender. Reading about how these two torment each other is frustrating, I just want to reach into the book and slap them both. Brandon finally figures out how to get to Regina, and this is the story from his point of view.
  • Marital Fantasies on Aug. 12, 2012

    Not bad, good story idea - could use some work, but good for a short erotic read. would love to see the story expanded on.
  • Erotic Fairy Tales:: The Three Sisters on Aug. 12, 2012

    No flow to the story, felt forced and writing style seemed more child-like - meaning written more for children's reading skills than adult. Didn't make much sense.
  • Strangers on a Train on Aug. 12, 2012

    Not a bad start but could use some work. Needs better flow and more explanation about their relationship and what was happening leading up to the train trip. Otherwise not bad.
  • An Indian Slave Capture and Breaking on Oct. 21, 2012

    It would help if the author had used spell, and actually put some thought into the women's emotional state instead of just writing what a man might want to happen in a twisted fantasy. Most people who read erotica, are not interested in badly spelled porn, but actually expect some substance and a tiny bit of realistic emotion.
  • Cantor The Giant on Oct. 22, 2012

    Pretty good - great idea, would love to see this developed into a full-length novel.
  • Moving Day on Oct. 22, 2012

    Decent story, only a couple of minor grammar/spelling issues.
  • Night Swimming on Oct. 22, 2012

    Too short - has great potential, but ends too abruptly without enough story details. Would love to read more.
  • The Vampire Hunter's Daughter The Complete Collection on Oct. 27, 2012

    The Vampire Hunter's Daughter is a single novel, written in six distinct parts. The collection contains all six of the parts of this unique and intriguing story. Chloe is a dynamic girl who has been protected by her mother her whole life. When faced with her true nature, who she really is, who her parents are/were, she is faced with some tough decisions. She is rescued from vengeful vampires by a small group of men knows as Vampire Hunters. She is taken to meet the grandfather she never knew - the father of her mother; where she is confronted by the fact of her parentage. Her father is a Vampire, and her mother was a strong Vampire Hunter. Chloe is rare being the offspring of both a powerful Vampire and a powerful Hunter - and her father is very determined to get her, no matter how many of her new friends he has to have killed to get her. His reasons being unclear as to why he truly wants her, she goes to him to hopefully save her friends from being killed by other vampires. Her adventure is unique and deadly. This story is full of danger, life and death struggles, coming of age, and learning to trust and love. Chloe is a likeable character, and her friends are both likable and frustrating at the same time. I enjoyed this story and would love to read more. I don't think I would have liked it as much if I would have had to read it in individual parts. It definitely makes more sense and flows much better as a whole novel
  • Uncontrollable (Book 2: The Nature of Grace series) on Oct. 27, 2012

    Uncontrollable continues with Grace's story, taking up where Untraceable left off. Once again Grace has captivated me with her motivation, determination and inner strength. I loved her just as much in this book as I did in Untraceable. I do recommend reading Untraceable before reading Uncontrollable, as there is much that will make more sense if you know Grace's backstory. My interest was once again captured from the beginning. The danger, mystery, hints of romance, humor and friendship made the story keep my interest to the end. The new characters were introduced well, and the characters from the first novel (like Wynn) continued to grow on me throughout this story. Though there were times when Wynn and Skylar were a bit annoying at times, but that was part of what made the story great - and did improve later in the book, at least with Wynn. I have to say, Uncontrollable is another well-written, amazing adventure by author S. R. Johannes. Definitely recommended for older teens and Young Adults (and adults who pretend we are young - lol)
  • The Halfling's Lust on Nov. 19, 2012

    Pretty good short story - could use a little more depth and history for the characters but all in all a good read
  • The XXX Files Episode 1 on Nov. 19, 2012

    better than i expected. Great start to the series. Would love to read more.
  • Tango Undone on Nov. 19, 2012

    very good but way too short. Just a quick dance and sex scene. I was hoping for a bit more. Why is this her last dance? who is he to her? would love to see more to the story - but what there is, is well written and steamy
  • Photo Shoot for Two, Joy for Three on Nov. 19, 2012

    Man's wet dream written for men. Some grammatical errors, sentence structure issues and does not flow smoothly. Hot steamy sex by a married man with 2 teenage girls. Sex scenes were ok, but the wording used was definitely male oriented. Words like "man tool" "snatch" and such can be improved to make the story better. Otherwise, nice story idea, great fantasy - just needs a little improvement to truly be 5 star.
  • The Fake Husband on Nov. 19, 2012

    Wow, amazing story, well written - and quite steamy! Loved it - would love to read more like this.
  • All About The Dress on Nov. 19, 2012

    OMG this was amazing. A wonderfully thought out, well written (only a couple of spelling errors) hot and steamy story. Love the main characters and the build up to each scene was well done. Great idea, well done!
  • Slick 50 on Nov. 24, 2012

    ok, my very first 5 stars for a free erotic read here on smashwords - my only complaint? it left me wanting more - would love to read the longer version! how about they get together after work or that weekend? hmmm yummy! well written, well thought out - great short read
  • Look Both Ways on Nov. 24, 2012

    nicely written, not as good as slick 50, but has great potential - all the smoking kind of ruined the mood for me personally.
  • Performing Under Pressure on Nov. 26, 2012

    Very predictable but well-written. Steamy and use of wording was great. Keep up the good work.
  • Ashley's Ass on Nov. 26, 2012

    SHort, different, erotic for sure. Pretty well-written.
  • Hot For Ma on Nov. 26, 2012

    Not what i was expecting. Needs more substance, doesnt flow well and personally i like one on one or M/F/M from time to time but him licking her after others had used her was icky to me. PErsonal opinion of course.
  • Introduction (The BDSM Sex Academy) on Nov. 26, 2012

    I'm sure this would be an excellent read for BDSM lovers - it goes into A LOT of detail about submission. Just not what I personally like - I enjoy a little BDSM with my erotica, but not an entire story telling me every detail to creating a Sub - pretty well-written - great idea and kudos for publishing! I give 4 starts for the background, details, attention to grammar and well-thought out story line 2 stars for personal preference and lengthy descriptions (my opionion)
  • Option Three - With a Stranger on Nov. 26, 2012

    Unique and enticing. A few grammatical errors and stilted sentences but otherwise a great story
  • A Quarter Dozen Dirty Stories on Nov. 26, 2012

    If you were going for a quick porn story - then good job. If you are wanting to engage the reader - both female and male, then could use a bit of work. Kudos for writing and publishing what you enjoy.
  • Teacher's Rules on Nov. 27, 2012

    Nice idea, has some spots that don't flow as well and a couple that are a bit too wordy - but otherwise good short erotica as described. I love the teacher's rules idea.
  • Love Me Tonight on Oct. 25, 2013

    That was not erotic. Switch to basic romance category.
  • Medical Examination for the Recruits on Jan. 07, 2014

    poorly written and completely nonsensical
  • Stranger's Paradox on July 21, 2014

    Not sure where all those 5 star reviews are coming from. The story has potential but is badly in need of a good editor!
  • Coming Home on July 21, 2014

    We'll written, engaging characters, and a great story. Hope there will be more stories with these characters and their friends/neighbors in the near future.
  • Feed, Seed, & Breed (BBW Alien Breeding Erotica) on July 21, 2014

    The story has promise, but needs some editing to make it flow better for the reader. Overall pretty good, but not enough to keep me wanting to read more.
  • Roommates on Aug. 19, 2014

    Short, needs edit and way too weird.
  • Come Monday on Sep. 02, 2014

    Well written, few minor errors. Story flows well, and makes sense! Captures the reader's interest and is realistic and engaging.
