  • One Short of a Handful on May 27, 2014

    WOW! This is a very hot book. It has 4 stories and each one is great. It is very erotic and sensual. The writing is superb and easy to follow. It is very descriptive but not in a foul way. It takes the reader to worlds of fantasies and lets you feel the rain, feel the buzz from the high, smell the sweet strawberries and you will never look at your room mate the same way again. The author Tina Sweeting is brilliant and her passion and sensuality flow into the pages and right into your soul. This is definitely for adults only but is one of the best erotica books I have ever read. I highly recommend this book to everyone who wants to slip into fantasy and desire.
  • Cape Currents on July 28, 2014

    I found this book to be most intriguing and gripping. It was a very interesting read, with suspense and the unknown. The struggles the sisters faced are strong and the family bond is there. But is it enough to survive the attacks that threaten? The details and descriptions are great and made me feel like I was there. The writing is smooth and concise. This book draws you in and holds on, even after it ends. The author Martin Peltz is very gifted and I really enjoyed his mind and imagination. I will be looking for more from him. I highly recommend this book, it is a great read.

The characters in each story are so compelling and real and made it a blast to read. The attention to details is wonderful and very vivid and sent me into each one. It is well written and easy to stay with and hard to put down. Tony Thorne is a brilliant writer and I want more, more, more! I strongly recommend this book. You will not be disappointed.
