  • The Love Machine: The Erobotica Series (Novella One) on Sep. 25, 2011

    I dont care for violent scenes (books, TV, movies.) When she programmed the robot, I just knew something would go wrong. She's human, he's a robot. And it happened. I was grossed out but I felt for the humans. The ending was exceptional for all involved - even the robot. I was FASCINATED with the story. Yes, I read it 3 times! I deleted the story from my reader because it was a bit violent for my taste. Even now, months later, I still remember the story! Now THAT tells you how good a story this is!
  • The Mating: The Original Law of the Lycans Story on Sep. 25, 2011

    I read all kinds of books: romance, paranormals, mystery, etc. I was very impressed with these series. First, it was a long book (don't care for short stories). Second, it came as a series. Third, Once I started reading the series, I had to read to the end. In the end, I just couldn't believe these books are FREE!
  • Night Driving on May 24, 2016

    I enjoyed this short story. Ending was okay but it left me hanging. I'm one of those readers who likes to have an ending finalized. Instead, I spent hours wondering the fate of the Lester. It was so much in my mind, I verbally told this story to my niece. Days later, and I'm still wondering about Lester's fate....
  • Letters to a File on May 24, 2016

    I liked the story and the time spans of the three people mentioned in it. I was wondering how she could maintain her 'real self' as she steadily climbed the ladder. Needless to say I didn't like the ending but it was inevitable based on the progression of her life. I still feel such sadness as I think about her and where she ended up in the end.
  • I'll Move So Fast on May 24, 2016

    I found it difficult to keep my attention span on this story. I'm not sure why. However, there was a paragraph or two that just caught my eyes and hit my heart/emotion. I'm currently going through stress and fighting depression. It's the conversation of Watkins about sitting, nursing your pain, getting back on your feet and the need to run. Run not away from your troubles but towards it. I reread it several times. It gives me a Positive way of thinking rather than my usual: if life knocks you down, get up, so that it can knock you down again. Watkins had a much better way of saying it.
  • Slocomb's Pond on May 24, 2016

    I really like this story. I was hooked from the beginning to the end. It was great. I even told myself after reading the book that if I ever have to flee from someone or angry animal to Not climb a tree or suffer the consequences...
  • That's All the Time We Have on May 24, 2016

    I don't understand subtleties like most of the reviewers did before me. When I came to the ending, I was like, "Huh?" So, I'm only giving a 3 star because whatever he was trying to convey with this story - it flew right past my head. Not the writer's fault.
  • The Offices of M. Coopersmith on May 24, 2016

    I don't like scary movies or scary books. This book kept me on the edge between scared and not wanting to read it anymore - throughout the story. Mr. C's nonstop talking was putting me on the edge and I wanted to tell him to quit talking and go faster! And to tell the teens to quit asking too much questions and just go faster. I really liked the book. I didn't even skip paragraphs like I usually do.
  • Episode 1 Knock on June 22, 2016

    I really like this book. I'm not sure if it's me but I find myself confused when reading her books. It was scary what the wraith did to her, yet, one can see he has feelings for her. There are just so many things happening, so much info to take in. I was hooked. I couldn't wait to read the next book.
  • Black Locust Letters on June 22, 2016

    I enjoyed this book. A bit confusing for me since I'm not used to books that requires me to be observant. I couldn't stop thinking about it while I was at work. And when I completed the book, I was still thinking about it. Did I like the Betty? No. But that didn't stop me from enjoying the book.
  • Episode 2 Bliss Den on June 22, 2016

    I enjoyed this book. I couldn't wait to read Brandy. I was cheering for her to succeed. Once I reached the ending, I couldn't wait to read the next book.
