  • Loving Jenna - Free Book 1 and 2 on Oct. 30, 2015

    Good Read. Morgan was a little too stand offish and Jenna was conservative. However, the passion betweeh them was hot and sensual. I am glad that it was more than just a business venture. It was love.

  • The Billionaire's Secret (An Erotic Romance) on Oct. 30, 2015

    The title is deceiving and I thought when I started reading this novella, i had downloaded the wrong book and/or there was a glich. Anyways, I did finish the novella. Sora Nakatomi is a former FBI agent. She has golden eyes and commits a murder. Instead of the big house, she is transferred to another big house, Skycorp. There, she is sentenced to being a servant and she meets Marie and Nola Pierce. She has to change her name and she changes it to Elen. Both Marie and Nolan are astonished and dismayed at her pick of the name. Later, Nolan reveals to her what it means. There is a connection between Sora/Elen, Nolan and Marie Pierce, Skycorp and possibly her niece, Rin. Just when it was getting good, it ends with a secret. The title was deceiving but the story is riveting. Sora/Elen is the female heroine. She sacrificed her career and freedom to protect her niece. She can kick ass as well. It looks like I have to buy the next installment in this series.
  • Wild Pleasures - Free Book 1 and 2 on Oct. 30, 2015

    Great start until Grayson and Kylie started acting like it was high school. More so Grayson than Kylie. Grayson lieing about having a girlfriend; then, not calling her. He should have manned up and just tell her how he felt. Grayson sounds hot, but he should have had more ba^^$ and come clean with his motives and feelings. Now onto book 3 & 4.
  • Wild Lust - Free Book 1 and 2 on Oct. 31, 2015

    Hmm...you go on a cruise and do not realize it is a BDSM cruise. Ok Jessa do your homework. Nonetheless, she is on the BDSM ship with bestie Kayla. I don't know about her bestie. She should at least have told her. Then again, she probably would not have gone and met Ryan her dominant.

    Love it! Elevator scene hot, hot, hot. I love the chemistry between Jake and Sarah. jake takes control of Sarah in the pleasure department which is unusual for Sarah when she is always in charge in the business department. He got her and she is satisfied and sated from the best sex in the Rockies. Love it.
  • Justified - Free Book 1 and 2 on Nov. 01, 2015

    It was ok. One night stand between Jax Derriinger and Callie Richards. They find out that they are working together on a film. He is basically producing and bankrolling it; she is choreographer. They spend passionate moments together. Callie finds out that she is replaced by a rival choreographer and realizes she is in love with Jax. She flees and flies of on a plane only to disappear. She should have stayed and faced her fears of depending on a man and giving into her emotions. However, if she did there would not be a 3 & 4 series.
  • Tempted on Nov. 07, 2015

    I loved it!. Lucy Reid and Jason Young - their chemistry just steamed off the pages. More power to thick, curvaceous women and the men that love them. I hated the bet that she was not invited to because of the way she looks. Oh well, she got Jason and he's got the prize-Luxy. The sex scenes were HOT, believable and not like what the heck. I love the teasing banter, i.e. Ms. Reid; Mr. Young. the panty stealing...Funny. I love it. Great start to the series.
  • Seductive Embrace - Free Book 1 and 2 on Nov. 07, 2015

    I loved it - Eva Borgia and Malcolm West's chemistry was off the chain. Eva took the initiative and without much persuasion got him to leave with her while they were attending his charity function and without their dates. Their was the misunderstanding of Malcolm thinking that Eva bedded him to finalize the capital transaction to her and her bestie, Cheryl's, PR consulting firm. He basically threw her out of his penthouse and offered his chauffeur to take her home. After being apart from each other, Malcolm realizes his mistake and cannot keep away from Eva. They copulate and Malcolm realizes he has more than just lust and naughty feelings about Eva. I loved it. Great writing. Great start to the series.

There were a few grammatical errors; nonetheless, it was a nice read. Both characters are loyal and devoted to their family. Katrina wants to save her family's farm; while Xavier wants to grant his sick mom's wish of him getting married and giving him grandchildren.

  • Not My Type on Nov. 15, 2015

    I loved it. Great love story between Elsa Starling and Joe Malone and Spike. This story took on a medical condition that plagues so many people. Getting immediate help, writing the cookbook, working out and eating right were positive aspects in dealing with Elsa's condition. It did get frustrating when the miscommunication, misunderstanding and jealousy took over their lives. Nonetheless, it ended on a high note. I loved it. Great Read!!!!
  • The Professor's Secret on Nov. 20, 2015

    Nice Read.
  • The Old Fashioned Billionaire - Book 1 on Nov. 21, 2015

    Ok so the title was a little deceiving. There were flowers, dinner, tour of the rich cabin. I was expecting more of a courtship; instead there was hot oral sex, maid outfit, high heels. dom & sub tendencies. Honestly, I was not sure if billionaire Damien Wesley was looking for a wife or a hot date 1 day and 1 night. Nonetheless, he seems to have found more with Laura Daniels - single and broke waitress. He took her from diner she worked at to further explore what is between them. Ugh! It ends with a cliffhanger.
  • Wicked - Free Book 1 on Nov. 22, 2015

    It was ok. I was not sure if Grace & Steve were a married couple or if they were together for a long time. It did not catch me like some of the other novellas did. The writing was fine. The storyline was ok. Grace & Steve's sex life was not something to brag about. It was kind of lack luster and Grace missed that. Then, bang it happens: Steve becomes the dom and Grace is the sub. She is ecstatic and shares the news with her bff, Hazel, who does not believe in love and puts the idea that Steve may be cheating. Nonetheless, Grace & Steve share another sexual interlude, not as intense as the previous one. Grace looks at her Steve's phone and finds an email from or to Amber. There is the cliff hanger.
  • Chosen by the Billionaire on Nov. 27, 2015

    Wow. That's a way to climb up the ladder Hot short read. I admired Caroline's stance on getting her co-workers their jobs back. Very brave. Brett sounds hot and smart. Heck he hired Caroline as his CEO/Personal Assistant. Honey work it.
  • A Mutt in Disguise on Nov. 27, 2015

  • Keeping David on Nov. 27, 2015

    I loved it. It was sweet, sensual, passionate and steamy. Age is nothing but a number - Janine got her young stud and David got his MILF. I am glad that they kept each other. I loved it.
  • Holiday Naughty: My Alpha Bad Boy Client on Dec. 04, 2015

    It was ok. I almost did not finish it. It could have used some editing and I'm not sure if it was written in a rush. The characters were not riveting nor memorable. It was ok.
  • Kiss Me - Free Book 1 on Dec. 13, 2015

Jill is fired; Tate invites her over for dinner and it ends up to be the appetizer and possibly dessert. He offers a job as an assistant and she ends up being his sex testing bunny. I understand the need for a job; however, Drake treated Jill like she was not worth it. On top of that, he threw his helmet at her. It was an ok read.
  • New Sensation (Curves for the Rock Star - Free BBW Rockstar Erotic Romance) on Dec. 19, 2015

    Good read. Amy Reid and Rick Borrell perfect fictional couple. However, if they hit it off and felt comfortable to talk about anything, why didn't Rick tell Amy about the most important person in his life and that he had another life? Nonetheless, it was good read.
  • Proposed by the Billionaire on Dec. 19, 2015

    Ok this was a little weird. I have no hang ups on D/S relationship; however, leaking from a bowl was a little too demeaning. Nonetheless, I finished it; however, I am very reluctanct about reading the second installment.
  • The Cop And The Girl From The Coffee Shop on Dec. 20, 2015

    Great read.
  • Loving Chance on Dec. 20, 2015

    Sooo good. I have always loved the friends to lovers concept. Olivia " Livie" and Chance are best friends; yet Livie felt more for Chance. It so good and there was no cliffhange. Awesome Read.
  • Branded on Dec. 20, 2015

    It was ok. There were too many run on sentences and grammatical errors. I lost count as to how many times Danny called Christie baby girl. It was ok.
  • Billionaire Season on Dec. 22, 2015

    I was wondering if the characters talked a mile a minute. It'ls like they just talked and did not breath. Long paragraphs. It was ok. Of course there was a cliffhanger. I
  • Turn My Head on Dec. 24, 2015

    Great read. I love the characters. I love the comparison to Seven Brides for Seven Brothers with the oldest brother, Adam, getting his head turned by Mae, a buxom curvaceous beauty. I love the sibling love and arguments. I love the fact that all the brothers knew how Adam felt about Mae and ridiculously ribbed him about it. They quickly accepted Mae into their household and family. Also, I loved how religion was brought into the story. I was raised a Catholic. What frustrated me was Mae's low self esteem and how she tried to avoid Adam. Also, she felt she could not handle him being wealthy. Nonetheless, he won her over and she succumbed to his charms and her feelings for him. I hope the next brother who gets his head turned book is free. Great start to the series.
  • Pierced on Dec. 27, 2015

    I loved it and could not put it down. Two people with devastating pasts come together through an escort service. Lia and Lucian are perfect together. I love that I felt the chemistry between them. Instantly, I was captivated, saddened and angered at Lia's history of abuse and homelessness; then, as the story progressed, I find out more about Lucian and his history of a love gone bad and loss. I love the pov from both characters. I love how Lucian's feelings were so heartfelt, well written and sweet to the eyes that I practically swooned. Their love scenes are so hot, sensual and passionate. Lia and Lucian's story did remind of a few popular erotic series; however, that did not dissuade me from reading this book. I disliked the fact that it ended in a cliffhanger. It is an amazing start to the series. Thank you, Ms. Landon. Awesome read.
  • A Long Goodbye (Southern Comfort-Book 1) on Dec. 30, 2015

    I loved it. It was so sweet and refreshing. It is so nice to read a book that was not heavy on the love scenes; however, those not so elaborate love scenes were still passionate, sensual, steamy, and left more to the imagination than a more descriptive one. The old adage less is best still remains true. I love Dane and Ashton. Dane wanted her to grow up and be the woman that she needed and wanted to be; while, Ashton just wanted to break away from her father's hold, fall in love and find someone that loves her for her. I love that bucket list. What a way to break the ice. I love that they can never get enough of each other. I love their reaction to each other. They are so perfect for each other. I love that there was not a cliff hanger to this book. I love that Ashton's best friend, LuLu, found her long awaited and well deserved happiness. An amazing read. I loved it.
  • Twisted on Jan. 01, 2016

    if was ok.
  • Finding Redemption on Jan. 02, 2016

    There were a few errors; but, other than that, I loved it. I was intrigued by the prologue and could not stop reading. It broke my heart to read about Brian's past. It explained how he became the man that he was - one night stands and drugs, Then, there is Shiloh who lost someone she loved and basically wanted to live life and start spending time with her brother, Hunter. So she and her BFF Melanie up, move and settle from Massachusetts to California. From the moment Shiloh and Brian looked at each other, both were gone. As with every love story, there is angst, demons, pasts that come back to haunt and a present rife with conflict, challenge, sadness, love and happiness. I love that Shiloh and Brian endured and have their happily ever after. 5 Stars Read!
  • Impulse: Infinitus Billionaire on Jan. 03, 2016

    I really enjoyed it. I love Alexander "Lex" Fitzgerald and Jillian "Jilly" Finnegan. The storyline was a little slow; but, as you read it got better. I love Lex - rich, protective, controlling, extreme sports enthusiast, passionate, sensual, sexy, smooth talking dirty mouth alpha man ; then, there is Jillian - stuntwoman for the stars, extreme sports enthusiast, loves bikes, guns, martial arts trained, beautiful, has curves in all the right places, great sense of humor, protective, passionate, sensual, foul mouthed, sensitive, and strong. I love the family dynamics - love 'em, hate 'em, will do anything for them, loyal to a fault and overprotective. They both come from big families and both are the main caretakers. I like the twist the storyline took especially with Jillian's lineage. The sex was hot and easy to picture. Lex's millionare posse sounds hot. Great start to the series.
  • Hot Ink on Jan. 06, 2016

    I loved it. It was so good. When the two main characters, Eric and Mina, finally consumated their relationship, I cheered. I love Mina who is the sole guardian of her sister, Jessie, who is a paraplegic. She i so strong, so mature for a twenty something young lady, who basically had to grow up real fast and set aside her own needs to make Jessie her priority; then, there is Eric, who is a tattoo artist, who lost his sister from a fatal car accident. He took his time with Mina and went at her pace. Instead of bailing on Mina when he meet her sister, he became more enamored of Mina because of her love and devotion to Jessie. Eric and Mina's moments together are sweet and sensual. i felt their chemistry from the first page. Their photo shoot, thanks to Mina's BFF, Karen and her matchmaking intentions, brought their passion to simmer. From then on, it boiled over. I hated the bullying that Jessie had endured. I hated that Jessie's homecoming date bailed on her, but the boy next door saved the day. It was an awesome start to the series.
  • The Neighbor – Book 1 (An Erotic Romance Series) on Jan. 08, 2016

    Enjoyed it. I wish this was not a cliffhanger and that the rest of the series was free. Shucks!
  • For One Night Only on Jan. 09, 2016

    Wow. What a twist. For One Night Only was a way for Brent, Chris' father, to get and enjoy pleasure at the same time blackmail Lana to walk away from Chris. Lana on the other hand got the money to pay her debts and get her sex on. Nice twist. Rough sex that was totally kept in tact and not overy rough. Good short read.
  • Power Struggle on Jan. 22, 2016
    (no rating)
    Great read. I love the characters -Tori and Dev. I like the fact that Ms. Jamieson featured a heroine over thirty with a twenty something lover. It gave a different outlook on the BDSM lifestyle. It's not all about flogging, whips etc. It's about trust and there are other ways to be dominant and submissive. I would love to see more of Tori and Dev and their HEA. I am glad to see that Gabe will have his own story. Nonetheless it was a great read.
  • Drawn on Jan. 30, 2016

    This was a good read. Despite the fact that the characters did not practice safe sex and were immature, I finished the book. The relationship between Etta and Damien was obsessive, possessive, rife with jealousy, passionate, and very repetitive sex. Faced with the repercussion of their unprotective sexual relationship, Etta turns to Aaron who was her first boyfriend and is now relagated to bff to help through this trying time. Incidentally, Aaron is in love with her; he has been in love with her since their first coupling. It's ironic how Etta wanted so badly to be independent and out from under her parents she ends up returning back home to get away from Damien and help her with the situation she did not protect herself from. It was as good read - itnpissed me off, it frustrated, it made me want to throttle Etta and Damien. It made me feel.
  • Western Romance: The New Farm Hand on Feb. 07, 2016

    Very nice read.
  • Nice Girl Naughty on Feb. 28, 2016

    Loved it.
  • Losing Forever on March 18, 2016

    I read this twice. I didn't remember reading it before. Then as i was reading it i remembered i did and could not put it down. There were errors - grammatical and which college they were attending. On one page it was written Cal State University; then on another page it was North Carolina. The book is about young love and betrayal and it did piss me off. Jordan did not give Reece the chance to explain and then she has her BFF Judy break up with Reece. Then she gets upset because he slept with other women. Okay she broke up with him. They were not exclusive anymore. However I was glad that Trevor and Judy finally got together. I did cry when Trevor and Jordan' s mom passed away. I love that Reece bought their childhood home and put Jordan's name on the deed. In the end Jordan and Reece realized they will always be forever. All in all it was a good read.
  • Billionaire Romance: Out of The Cold (Book One) on March 19, 2016

    Short and sweet.
  • FIGHT(A Bad Boy MMA Romantic Suspense Novel) on Sep. 05, 2016

    Great Read! It was suspenseful, sex driven and very adult situations. There was a mistake in relation to hands. It read his hands, when it should have been her hands. Nonetheless, I enjoyed it. Two people who had despondent pasts end up in love together with a happy ending. I would love to see more of Tripp and Winter. Great Read!
