About Jeremy Sterling

Jeremy Sterling is obsessed with classic movies, obscure knowledge, and the idea that sexual themes and conflicts are rich fodder for classic storytelling.

Might Have Been was his first novel, winning rave reviews from readers on Amazon and Smashwords, and spending time as the top-rated story on Literotica. He has also written short stories in genres ranging from romance to erotic horror.

He is currently immersed working on several additional stories and two novels, and has no idea which will be completed first.

Jeremy writes for fun, and is happy in his professional career. He has decided to offer his work for free until such time as he has a readership consisting of millions of literate-smut-junkies desperate to fork over enough cash for his next book that he can buy a Caribbean island, such as Cuba. Aim high.

He loves writing about himself in the third person almost as much as he loves feedback, and appreciates reviews, comments, or email. He can be reached via email at mugwumper123@gmail.com

Reviews of Might Have Been by Jeremy Sterling

Jeremy Lee reviewed on July 17, 2016

Didn't find any typos. No cliches to worry over. Text flowed nicely. Lots of fairly complex words which might put some people off, but I loved it. The storyline and concept is awesome, and the whole book flowed very nicely. A full five stars from me. It's sophisticated and descriptive.

At first I resisted getting to know the characters because the relationship between Lance and Tasha was so painful to read about. I wanted to slap some sense into both of them and only later figured out that's they were both flawed in a way to make their pain inevitable. Only by going through it could either of them come out sane.
Great mix of drama, sci-fi, erotic wrapped up in a strong story.
The regression back to high school and redoing all the mistakes he had made with girls was a brilliant trick. And in the end they all wound up being failures in the relationship department as before but only after great sex.
Keep writing Mr. sterling and I will keep following your lead.

A clever approach to getting a binding story around different sexual fantasies. Well worth a read, high quality in its editing and handling of language.

This is one of those books that you keep thinking about long after you have read the last page. Highly recommended!

I loved this book. I especially liked the blend of modern physics into romance! I couldn't put this book down. I liked how every single woman that the main character has sex with (and there are a lot of them) appeared on the surface to be a cliche... the sexually-innocent yet curious pastor's daughter, the trophy wife, the cold punk bitch, the suicidal artist, the hot popular girl... yet every character was developed into 3 dimensions which reminded the reader and the protagonist not to judge a person by their 'label'. I eagerly await Sterling's next novel.

A very enjoyable and different approach to erotic writing. Follow the dates to make sense of it. Loved it.

Enjoyable and well written. Creative and with a strong narrative voice. The sex is not the fully explored, but enjoyable.

Einstein was right about a unified theory. In Might Have Been, Sterling adroitly crafts a multiverse, carefully threaded together with the delicate strings of theoretical physics. Put a brilliant, Caulfieldesque physicist and an exuberant Manic Pixie Dream Girl in the same room, toss in a tangled history and it's like antimatter igniting.

But behind the wordplay and the stunning level of erudition, the larger-than-life characters dig deep into terra firma with each turn of the page. Might Have Been allows the readers to take a final, longing look over the shoulder, weighing out the words unsaid, stealing all the kisses left untouched and reclaiming all the bridges broken and torn asunder. It celebrates the tenacity of hope and mourns the love that never was.

The sex is passionate, hot, and the epitome of geek fantasies. Certain scenes are sure to burn into minds of readers, and probably inspire a venture or two.

There aren't many books in this likeness, and from the unexpected, theoretically discordant elements, Sterling has successfully crafted a unique and compelling novella that seamlessly ties erudition with emotion. It's sexy, it's smart, and holy mother of Hadron, it's bloody fantastic.

Superbly written, this book is very difficult to quantify. It is an amazing combination of quantum physics, psychology, romance and of course sex. All handled beautifully. Mr. Sterling should be very proud.
