About Aubrey Ross

When my parents realized I had an aptitude for storytelling--okay, even at an early age I was a consummate liar--they encouraged me to find constructive ways to put all that "creativity" to use. I wrote my first novel when I was in junior high school. It was a typical teenage girl's fantasy about being kidnapped by a rock star, finding out he was really misunderstood, a millionaire's son, and living happily ever after with the reformed rebel. Erotic romance just seemed like an inevitable destination for someone with my naughty muse.

Now I spend my days, and many of my nights, trying to keep up with the characters springing to life within my mind. I find creative ways of avoiding errands and housework because I can't drag myself away from the dramas unfolding in my latest story. And everyday I thank God I was able to quit my day job and actively pursue my dream!

I also write paranormal romance as Cyndi Friberg. If you're in the mood for something a little less...in your face, give one of my other books a try.

I really enjoyed this story. I thought it was well written, I liked the story line, and the sex scenes were hot! I was able to read it in one sitting, and for a short story I thought the author did a good job of character building.

Review by: Sadie S. Forsythe on May 22, 2013 :
I thought that this was alright, though I honestly think there is enough here to develop it into a whole book. There is years of history referenced between the H/h. That might just be my preference for novels over short stories coming to the fore.

Things I liked:
★Grayson being so enamoured with Sasha. I thought the way he followed her about without her knowing was really cute. Maybe a little creepy too, predominantly cute. I also just plain liked Grayson.
★The Doctor - I thought his jovial character was a lot of fun
★The dialogue - outside of the sex scenes it felt fairly natural
★The setup for the larger plot seems interesting, with the potential for some fun twists

Things I didn't like:
★I know that Doms & Subs are all the rage right now, but its inclusion felt like an unnatural attempt to please the masses here. I don't mean Grayson being dominant and Sasha being submissive. I was fine with that. But when Grayson started lecturing on the role of an actual Dom or Sub it went too far. He lives in a refugee camp/colony with enough cultural difference that they have to discuss the use of certain titles, so whats the likelihood they have the same sexual subcultures as the greater populace. It also simply wasn't necessary to the plot.
★The use of 'Sir.' Again, I don't really mind them including that in their dominance play. Fine, if that's what gets them off. But the excuse that Sasha wanted to submit because she was otherwise always in control felt like a fallacy. She's in the army, admittedly a major, but that means she isn't in control. She's submitting to orders all day everyday, so I'm not buying the let my control go spiel. Every time she called him Sir I was reminded of this fact.
★The anal sex. I don't mind it being included. In fact I often find reading about it pretty hot. (Though this particular scene felt pretty clinical.) But it was accorded an importance that it didn't seem to require or deserve.
★The fact that the H/h had been sniffing around each other for years left me wondering what made this encounter any different. There didn't seem to be any reason they would act differently on this particular day than any other.

All in all I thought the story was enjoyable enough and I'd be happy to finish out the series, especially if any more of them come up on the free list.
