Smashwords book reviews by Lisa C

  • Black Orchid on Dec. 09, 2015

    This is an interesting story about a self-absorbed man, Hunter, who had no direction in his life. All he cared about was his own gratification and how many hookers he could get his hands on. He was happy until he met and tried to seduce one of the island girls that he couldn't buy. She ends up destroying his ego and made him wonder where he had gone wrong. The story is about redemption and eventually doing something good for the island residents. This book is full of happiness, sadness, joy, and pain. I don't want to ruin the story for you, but the book is well written, and the erotic scenes are over the top scorching.
  • Bruised But Not Broken on Dec. 11, 2015

    This was a weird subject matter for erotica, but the author pulled it off. I wondered how you could talk about abuse and erotica in the same book, but Mr. Maddox does it so well that I couldn't get enough of it. The good guys get what they need, and the bad guys, yes, there are more than one, get what they deserve. If you like warm, sensual erotica along with an actual story, you won't be disappointed. Great value at 50K words.
  • Unlikely Love on Dec. 14, 2015

    I loved these characters. There were both fiercely self-reliant, yet they both needed something that only the other one could give them under the circumstances. He needed love, and she needed protection. I rarely cry reading books, but I cried with grief and then cried with joy reading this one. I loved the male character, and then I hated him only to love him again. They made love out of nothing at all.
  • Orient Bay - Clothing Optional on Dec. 15, 2015

    This a lighthearted, fun book about love and relationships. There is no drama or tears in this story because it's about desire and physical attraction. Two people have a chance at a lasting relationship after being discarded by their previous lovers. I like this author's sense of humor and his use of dry wit. Amanda and Brian are in heat after spending the day on the beach looking at each other. Great meals, romantic walks on the beach, and erotica that wasn't vulgar, made this a fun and sexy read.
  • Mistaken Identity on Dec. 18, 2015

    The idea that Alex mistook Shannen for an escort and offered to pay her for sex is what intrigued me about this story. He was lonely and needed companionship. She was jaded and abused and needed someone she could trust, and he, at least, looked trustworthy. It turns out that he is wealthy and she is wealthier. They have a torrid love affair that spans both coasts until they receive photographs of him with another woman. The story is an intriguing and complex one in which several relationships evolve. The history and scenery around Seattle is wonderfully described. Be mindful that the erotic scenes are in your face vivid and very sexy. And who would have known that Seattle had one of the largest brothels in the history of the world at 500 beds. This book has it all, wealth, intrigue, deceit, kinky sex, and love.
  • Secrets on Dec. 21, 2015

    I don't know where to start. It's like the introduction said: It's complicated. Without spoiling it for you, I can say that it is about three people that love each other. Their love is so strong that they are willing to sacrifice themselves for the others. I love this author. He has the ability to talk about social issues while infusing romance and erotica. This book was very sensual, and the sex scenes were scorching hot!!! This book was very intriguing, and in some ways, makes a good case for plural marriages. Read it and decide for yourself.
  • Loving My Neighbor on Dec. 30, 2015

    Wow!!! This story is pure romance with some of the hottest sex you will ever read. There are a few scenes that will put a lump in your throat, but it is mostly about two people whose love cannot be denied along with tender eroticism. It makes you wish that you could find someone just like Jason who could make your love last forever. This book humorously points out who wears at the pants in the average family, and it isn't the men. This a good, funny, sexy lighthearted read.
