A.V. Roe is the pen name for a retired computer systems plumber with a vivid erotic imagination who writes short stories, novellas and a novel in the erotica genre. He has also been a private pilot for more than 40 years, so his stories generally have an aviation based theme. Sub-genres include polyamory, menage and sexual fantasy role playing, even paranormal.
One Twisted Valentine: The Ravenwood Circle Story 5
on March 02, 2014
An imaginative, well paced short story, in the classic erotica genre. Enjoyed the characters, and especially enjoyed the warmth between them. Nice to read a menage story where the characters have genuine affection for each other. And the graphic sex was nicely described and believable. Only had to reread a couple of depictions to figure out where all the various body parts were. Enjoy a fun read, go for it!
Her First Time
on July 14, 2014
Compact short story about loss of virginity. Good tension between the principle characters, intense consummation scene that seemed a bit unrealistic, certainly not tender. Nice quirk with the ending that, while ambiguous, was not unsatisfying. It just seemed meant to be. I liked the story.
Freelance Saga: Learning Curves
on July 18, 2014
"So, a whole new world to explore, a world filled with monsters, danger, and hot girls that are into hardcore sex in public. Sounds like my kind of place." -- Scott Hunter, soldier of fortune in Freelance Saga.
Combine The Matrix with The Hunger Games and throw in Dungeons and Dragons and you get this Sci-Fi erotic short story, with a copious amount of humor. Great escapist read, well written. Unfortunately I'm not a gamer, so a lot of terms were new to me and I don't think I got the full gist of the story. Too many "levels." But, as the author says, this looks like it will turn into an ongoing short story and novella series. I believe it will have appeal to kinky sci-fi addicts and this is an intriguing start. I wish Scott Hunter success as he probes the erotic mind of author Scottie Futch.
Formal Fingering - Risk It All
on July 22, 2014
Excellent tension that you would expect from a hot couple wanting to have sex in public. Crisp, well written descriptions of sexual encounters between a very horny couple. Satisfying short story.
Sexy Little Bites: Short Stories to Excite
on July 23, 2014
Light, breezy shorts. As with all anthologies, some were better than others. The first one, while unbelievable, was hot. Parents would get a kick out of the one in the new bunkbeds. The paranormal one was imaginative. Quick fun.
on Oct. 14, 2014
Interesting start to a twisted short story. Ending left me hanging. I'm guessing the ambiguity is leading to a sequel. Really needs and edit for syntax and grammar.
6 Erotic Shorts
on Oct. 26, 2014
Six breezy shorts. Great to read on your smart-phone when you have to pass some time. Both hetero and lesbian plots, very little kink, just interesting, sometimes clever stories, especially Artist's Wives.
on Oct. 27, 2014
Clever plot. Neither steamy, nor graphic, just a hint of M/M action. Nicely crafted short story with interesting history of incubus lore.
One Plus Two Minus One
on Dec. 02, 2014
Read this book on a recommendation. Glad I did. It's very different, in a good way, at least to my kinky mind.
I'm left brain, over the top analytical with a degree in math, so I identified with Beth. Liked her uncouth character and that she's an unapologetic nymphomaniac. Interesting combination since she uses sex to depressurize from the constant stress of living in her mind doing number theory research. Been there. Not sure about other mathematicians but I love, wet, messy sex, especially oral and am visually fixated when it comes to the female anatomy, especially breasts. Just like Ethan in that respect. So the plot resonated on a number of chords. On top of everything else, this is an older woman / younger man trope, which I love, and against all the pressure of our western cultural norms, her pussy wins out and she chooses to be with the younger man. God how I love a nymphomaniac. Sure wish the English 101 teacher I had a crush on in college was like Beth.
And then along comes the prose, rough hewn, slashing syntax and punctuation, like carving a log with a chain saw. At first it was mind jarring. Ms. Mackenzie's style is a combination of Hemingway spare, with few adverbs, short, staccato burst sentences, and the repetitive style of a high school student writing their first fiction. I'll admit my first impression was somewhat negative. But for some odd reason, the prose seemed to fit the plot and the minds of the protagonists and I ended up enjoying it a lot.
Some reviewers have criticized the breakup between Beth and Robert with some justification, because it's tedious and illogical, considering who's involved. But the reality is, breaking up with someone whom you've had a long term, close relationship, is very difficult, messy and tedious. It defies logic what you'll do for the other person if you cared about them and the one jarring thing about Beth's personality is her inability to think logically about either of the people she cares for. As a detached observer, I couldn't understand why she didn't make a clean break. By the same token, I've been in that same situation and I handled it just as poorly. Hindsight is always 20/20.
I'll read more stories by Ms. Mackenzie, especially since most of them are short, graphic, erotic stories, the genre I enjoy most. And did I mention? I loved the non-stop, wet, sticky, messy, kinky, graphic, fuck anywhere sex!
Everyone Has Katie
on Dec. 02, 2014
Kinky, linear short story about revenge sex. The author's writing style is unique, sort of primitive slash and burn. I enjoy it, but if you're a syntax and punctuation purist, it will drive you nuts. Ignore it, read the story, and feel the tension and angst.
Strangers Come Inside
on Dec. 02, 2014
Kinky, definitely kinky. Kinkier that most Mackenzie reads I've read. I like oral fixation, wet, messy sex and this is it to the extreme. Good that it's fantasy because it was very dangerous behavior but it added to the dynamic. Ms. Mackenzie's writing style is primitive and this short story had many typos, but if you're into kinky fantasies, this is a quickie erotic mind orgasm. I enjoy her works, no matter how bizarre the grammar, because the plots are fascinating and her examination of people's thought processes during their arousal is thought provoking for the reader. Would I do that, is a question you are constantly asking yourself. And of course, her characters always go ahead and do it, give into their most primal lust.
on Dec. 09, 2014
Typical Mackenzie exploring awakening emotions. Fun romp through the mind of a young lady trying to come to grips with her first lesbian attraction. Especially liked clever character development of Zoe, so coy, understated sexiness.
Sharing Melissa’s Mouth
on Dec. 10, 2014
Nice short story about emotional involvement when new kink is introduced into a relationship. I enjoy Ms. Mackenzie's intimate look into her characters minds. This short story delves into the young ladies mind as she tries to please her mate's kinky fantasies. I wish we could get as deep a look into male character's mind.
Size Doesn’t Matter
on Dec. 12, 2014
Tess Mackenzie writes off the wall erotica. Size Doesn't Matter is the first time I've ever seen penis size addressed in erotica, and this short story was nicely done. It was gratifying to read how the female coped with the male's shortcomings (pun intended) and found sexual satisfaction for both of them. In normal Mackenzie style we read the emotional conflict Billie goes through in dealing with the first guy she's bedded that has a definite size problem.
Trick or Treat
on Dec. 16, 2014
Excellent quickie mind orgasm to draw you into the sequel. Very short, well written, taut, story of F/F attraction. Fun read in my browser in 10 minutes.
Teach Me More
on Dec. 16, 2014
Sizzling sequel to Trick or Treat. Quickie sexual encounter in upstairs bathroom at a party where a woman enjoys her first bi-sexual relationship with a lesbian she's hot for. Got a feeling there's going to be more close encounters in this relationship, considering the lesbian is so dominant. Good tension and graphic scene.
Authors for Goodreads
on Jan. 23, 2015
Humorous. Factual inaccuracies too numerous to mention, but obviously that's what the author intended, considering he asks you to 1* his book. More humorous, of course, is the fact that you actually have to write at least a one line review here on smashwords, or on Amazon. There is no requirement to write a review on Goodreads; you can just 1* bomb an author you don't like to your heats content and invite a hundred of your friends to join you.
However, what is truly ironic is that while Mr. Gavran spoofs the book Authors vs. Goodreads, when he put this book on Goodreads, he violated the rule that got me kicked off Goodreads. Apparently he didn't read Authors vs Goodreads as closely as he claims.
As Authors vs. Goodreads points out, authors on Goodreads must know what is in the Librarian manual, although when they join Goodreads, they aren't Librarians and probably have no idea what a Librarian is or the manual exists. Didn't make much difference when I was a member back in December because all links to the manual were broken and you couldn't read it anyway. (They have since been fixed, of course.)
So, if you read the Librarian manual you will find this section:
This field is for entering a URL officially associated with that book, such as a page on an author's site for the book. It may also be an author or publisher's website for the book, if it contains additional information or resources not on Goodreads.
Fan sites, libraries, Amazon book pages, WorldCat, Library of Congress, reviews, book sellers, Wiki pages or other such pages should NOT be listed.
Be sure to include the entire link, including the http:// part.
Example of an acceptable link:
Examples of unacceptable links:
Oddly enough, the "Official url" field did not exist on the Book edit page in December, even though the field was listed in the Librarian Manual. Yet another feature that has apparently been fixed in the interim, because author Gavran used it ... incorrectly.
Look at the authors book listing for Authors for Goodreads on the Goodreads website:
ebook, 18 pages
Published January 20th 2015 by Smashwords
edition language English
Or you can go here to see it for yourself: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/24608514-authors-for-goodreads
Until it is changed to cover up the fact.
It appears Mr. Gavran like A.V. Roe didn't read the Goodreads Librarian Manual because he put a link to a "book seller" in the "url" field. That is specifically prohibited. At least A.V. Roe put a link to his author website on his Book description page because there was no "Official url" field in December. Unfortunately the rule in the Librarian manual which I had no access to, does say:
"The description field should not include any images or links to external sites."
Mr. Gavran's violation has been reported to Goodreads management. Wonder if Goodreads will excommunicate Mr. Gavran, too?
That Girl On The Bus
on Feb. 09, 2016
There are two "old axioms" in publishing: Never judge a book by its cover; Covers sell books.
I fell prey to the second axiom on sight. The cover of That Girl On The Bus thrashed my erotic cortex upon first view and hooked me.
I figured the cover would be the best part of the book. After all, I had never heard of the author, and the book had no reviews.
Wow! Was I ever surprised. I must admit that I'm a geezer who is a sucker for a well written smutty romance novella. This story was well written with damn few typos despite it complex sentence structure which came with a warning. Character development was superb. It is laced with humor, philosophy and subtle cultural criticism which I enjoy. The explicit sex is to my liking: graphic and satisfyingly slow as would happen between two people who were very much in love and enjoyed sex. No slam, bam, thank-you-mam.
If possible, I would give it 6*. Thanks for a heart warming story. I'll be on the lookout for your next title.
Jiggles and the Test Pilot
on March 05, 2018
My, what a kinky airport staff. Would love to fly into an airport like this one. This is a light hearted romp into casual sex by very open minded young ladies. Great for your introduction to avporn, which is so hard to find.
