Smashwords book reviews by Lazlow Cole

  • Mom Will Do Anything...Even Her Son on Nov. 29, 2014

    The story is a bit out there but it works as a reasonable premise. The characters do react to their situation with realistic hesitation so while the premise is unrealistic, the reactions aren't. This is the first thing I've read by this author and I think I'll be checking out more of her work. However, while I'm no English major, the typos and poor grammar are a bit distracting. This work is in desperate need of an editor or even a spell checker.
  • Steve and Julie's Epic Family Sex Adventure on Nov. 29, 2014

    I loved this story when I found it on another site. I was happy to purchase it here and re-read it. This version is much longer than the other yet I feel the additional material is really unneeded and only prolongs the story without adding any depth. Had I stopped reading where the other version ended, I would have given it 5 stars.
  • Sexcalation on Nov. 29, 2014

    This is an excellent book and my review is far overdue. It's light and humorous in places yet can get heavy when necessary. Loved the ending!
  • One Week Loan on Nov. 29, 2014

    What a disappointment! The story is decent if not entirely plausible but it never resolves. Clearly this was intended as the first of several parts. The problem there is no other parts have been written as far as I can tell. This situation has put me off of this author because I feel let down over this story's abandonment and don't want to pay to be let down again.
  • Safe With Me on Nov. 29, 2014

    I got suckered into a romance novel! About half way through I realized I wasn't reading erotica but romance yet I didn't care. I mentioned it to several friends who read it and nobody was disappointed. Great book!
  • The Inheritance on Nov. 30, 2014

    If you're looking for lots of hot steamy action then this is not a book for you. The story is pretty good but there is very little sex in it. It also gets a bit repetitive where a certain event is needlessly described several times in what is practically copy/paste.
  • Amulet on Nov. 30, 2014

    I liked it. Enjoyable.
  • My Brother's Harem on Dec. 03, 2014

    Initially there were some excellent scenes in this book which I enjoyed very much. Then it started getting ridiculous and went downhill from there. After a while it wasn't hot or exciting just kind of gross. Scenes occurred for no reason and characters gained no depth. Though not a prude, I got completely turned off by the various descriptions. To each their own, this book wasn't my cup of tea.
  • Jack The Giant Layer on Jan. 17, 2015

    This is a good book! It has an interesting story and an intelligent main character. I'd like to read more adventures in this world. The sex was a bit generic but that's just a matter of style.
  • Animal Rescue on April 06, 2016

    This one is a bit different. Not my usual fare but I thought I'd try it. Written in present tense it takes a bit of getting used to but once you do, it flows pretty well. While it's clearly not intended to be factual (or even feasible), parts are so out there that it's hard to suspend your disbelief to meet them. I found myself skimming sections because they were so far-fetched. However, overall it was a different but interesting read.
  • Club MiXXXer on June 26, 2016

    I think this book is closer to 3.5 stars than 4. It's an excellent concept with tons of potential but fails to deliver in my opinion. The pacing is uneven on several levels. A concept like this begs for some uncertainty in the main characters but instead it gets right into it with no time put to building and without the smallest reservation from the participants. What if the participants were to engage in a few structured games in order to break the ice? The scenes are also a bit jumpy in pacing. Paraphrasing one scene: "Do you want to?" "I don't know." "Do you want to?" "OK!", it was nearly that fast. It's also interesting that the several characters who are portrayed as insensitive and clueless are male. I feel as if a point were being made outside of the story. It's too bad because it took me out of the fantasy. It's a story not a lecture. Summary: Excellent idea which failed to fully deliver. If I were an English teacher and the author my student, I'd ask for a rewrite to bring out the potential because it's there! Maybe an editor would have helped (and avoided some grammatical errors)?
  • Amy's Year on Aug. 28, 2016

    I liked the concept of this book but its reality is far more grim. Almost every guy in the book is sadistic, cruel and mean and not in a kind of fun yes-master-I'll-do-what-you-ask-but-only-as-far-as-I'm-willing kind of way. It's more of a you-will-sleep-on-the-floor-in-the-hallway-like-a-dog-and-have-no-choice way. It paints a terrible picture of us men. I'm just not into senseless cruelty.
  • Painting Mom's Face on Nov. 27, 2016

    Sometimes authors know no limits and this is a book by one of those. It starts with a good premise and a clear path to the climax but then the author decided that any page without a new sex scene is wasted space. I exaggerate only slightly. By the time the climax is in sight, the reader has already been desensitized to the whole taboo concept. There is no pacing or titillating which is really unfortunate.
  • If The Door Is Open on Nov. 27, 2016

    This is a short read but the author seems to understand that the action needs to ratchet up slowly without the whole enchilada being thrust at the reader at once. It's pretty well written and within the realm of possibility. I'd like to see a bit more tension (will they or won't they, how far will it go?) but this is a good read. Will check out other stories by the author.
  • Camping and Canoodling on April 30, 2017

    I've read several things by the author before and this isn't the best. It's short (for the author) obvious and not inventive. This isn't saying it's bad, it isn't. It's just not the strongest of the bunch.
  • The Switch on April 30, 2017

    This was an interesting story. It was inventive yet at times very confusing. It makes sense in the end.
  • Sex Camp ~ Menage & Bondage Erotica on June 11, 2017

    Fine.
  • The Pet on Nov. 10, 2017

    This book isn't good. The author uses no quotation marks so dialog is difficult to follow. The plot is silly and so implausible that it irritated me. I understand that it's a fantasy and probably most erotica would never really happen but this goes to extremes. It takes BDSM to a weird, degrading point that I can't fathom.
  • The Event on May 06, 2018

    I thought this story was going to go Fifty Shades but it jumped to somewhere unexpected which I appreciate. Hopefully the next book won't go to the obvious place. Overall it has a good amount of explicit variety and was well-written. I look forward to the next installment.
  • Don't Ask, Don't Tell on Jan. 19, 2019

    This is a good read by a talented author. Unlike many authors, Lubrican seems to understand pacing and setting up a fantasy. Due to this the story may move too slowly for some readers. I enjoyed the pacing and prefer stories such as this where the narrative supports the erotic scenes rather than just being a means to string one boring encounter to another. My only negative is that the author shamelessly refers to his previous works in what sometimes feels like blatant product placement. A classier move would have been to reference other similarly talented authors.
  • Incestuous Instincts on Jan. 19, 2019

    This is a decent story. I tend to focus on a reasonable pacing and the setting up of a fantasy rather than just present erotic scenes and Dinkleberry does this well.
  • The Bimbo Pill - The Trilogy on Jan. 19, 2019

    I just couldn't make it through this book. I guess bimbos just aren't terribly interesting to me.
  • Lubrican's Short Stories - Volume Three on Jan. 20, 2019

    I wish at least one of these were turned into a full length story.
  • The Not-so-Super Model on Jan. 21, 2019

    This is the third book I've read by this author and I noticed a pattern. Most of his characters end up pregnant, even the guys. Kidding on that last part. I understand that real sex has consequences which responsible adults need to plan for but this obsession goes beyond that. Rather than have characters take reasonable precautions, such sensibilities are discarded for nonsensical reasons. "Maybe you should go on the pill?," simply answered with "No." or "I'll get a condom." followed by "no, let's do this now." (Paraphrased to avoid plagiarism.) This is the author's choice but he loses a star from me for not at least working that into his written world in a way that makes sense.
  • The Scientist on Jan. 21, 2019

    Does torturing a woman sound like fun? What if that torture was sexual? Not so bad but what if the woman felt it was torture and hated it? Yeah that's just messed up. This is that book. The sample seemed like the experiments would be sort of sexy, playful and maybe mischievous but in the end they were pointlessly cruel and demeaning. Does making a woman hold her nose against a wall for hours on end, several times a day do it for you? Not me. Full disclosure: I only got 41% through this before I tapped out. It's just not erotic.
  • The Farmer on Feb. 02, 2019

    Full disclosure: this is the second book I tried to read from this author. I made it through 52% of this one. This is just my opinion and not a judgement on the acts described within the book. If others like it, totally cool, I'm not a fan. To me BDSM is about control yet should be fun. It's mischievous. Depriving someone of food, even for a day isn't fun or sexy, it's just cruel. Doing so when that person didn't break the rules of the play but just because you want to assert your control is mean. I don't enjoy reading about it. Perhaps another individual will get this type of play and enjoy this book, I did not. Sorry.
  • Free At Last on March 06, 2019

    Not bad. Not a fan of the ending. Seems like that author was trying to be clever but it didn't really make sense.
  • Best Laid Plans on March 06, 2019

    I've been a fan of the Summer Camp world for years and this is an interesting entry in that timeline. I would have liked to have seen the buildup take a bit longer but still enjoyed it.
  • The MILF Club on March 08, 2019

    This was an OK story but it almost made no sense. The main characters want to join this club yet there is no mention of why (what do they get out of it) until about 85% of the way in. Erotica is all about exaggeration but I couldn't get past them wanting to join this club without telling the reader what the benefits of membership were. I'd give this 3.5 stars if possible but the author tried so benefit of the doubt.
  • With Her Friend on March 13, 2019

    This book was OK. After a brief build up it was just sex scene after sex scene with few variances.
  • I Dare You on Aug. 11, 2019

    Not bad, good pacing. I wasn't sure how the author was going to keep upping the game without giving up on the concept but she did a great job.
  • Accidental Swingers on Sep. 08, 2019

    Not bad, slow pace which I prefer. It just sort of ends without a formal resolution like the author got bored and stopped writing.
  • Taboo: Mother May I? on Sep. 21, 2019

    Good pacing and fun concept. Well done!
  • How the Women Got Plastered and Patrick Got Busted on Sep. 26, 2019

    The pacing, my personal pet peeve, was excellent with relationships going through stages rather than rushing to the conclusion. Good premise, executed well.
