Smashwords book reviews by Eileen Troemel

  • How To Defeat Pixies. on March 23, 2015

    This needs a serious edit. The story is interesting, the imagination wonderful but the execution of the story is poor. The author says she has Dyslexia in which case she should get a good editor and keep writing. Her imagination is interesting but her writing style a little under developed. With a good editor I think she could produce some amazing stories. This was interesting and fun to read if you can get by all the grammar and spelling errors.
  • Hairy Dick on June 17, 2015

    Funny, sexing and a little kinky... like the twist on the werewolf story.
  • The Takeover on June 20, 2016

    Please edit. It may be erotica but get the spelling and grammar correct. There really isn't a lot of actual sex - it's a lot of implication.
  • The Lake on June 20, 2016

    Why couldn't he let her orgasm often? There are spelling and grammatical errors which are distracting. It's a bit of hot stranger sex.
