About Alessia Brio

Take one part Appalachian redneck, one part aging wet dream, and one part filthy-minded wordsmith. Mix well and serve with chocolate-covered cherries. There you have the one and only Alessia Brio. Alessia writes all colors and flavors of erotica, from heterosexual to menage to same sex, and from twisted to humorous to deeply touching. (Sometimes, usually by accident, it even qualifies as romance.) Her work has earned her critical acclaim in the form of a few EPIC eBook Awards for Best Erotica, a couple Next Generation Indie Book Awards, and a Romantic Times Top Pick in addition to a plethora of glowing online reviews.

Not all of Alessia's publications are allowed here on Smashwords due to censorship. Readers interested in the full catalog are encouraged to visit her label's website at

Cute little erotica story, nothing special

I've looked at several dozen erotica publications on here over the last week. Alessia Brio is the first author I've come across that has any idea how to structure a story. For this, I am bothering to review her work. Wannabe authors take note: look at your story structure, consider the words you use. Avoid cliches and stay away from adjective overload. Nice, Alessia. Style reminds me of Raymond Carved.

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.
