Smashwords book reviews by Ruby Jewlz

  • A Wedding Story on June 14, 2011
    (no rating)
    This was really good. The dialogue was fast and snappy, I couldn't help laughing. I look forward to reading more of Dee Tenorio's work :)
  • Heart And Soul on Aug. 20, 2011

    A really sweet book that I wouldn't mind re-reading :)
  • Heat and Fire (Part 1): Underground Pleasure on Aug. 28, 2011

    What could have been a wonderful story was marred by many typos and seemingly random, disjointed sentences. Wouldn't mind reading more stories if the writer would edit a bit better...
  • Fuzzy on Sep. 30, 2011

    Loved it! Incredibly sweet, and like the person below this wrote, hot.
  • Operation Porn Storm on Oct. 04, 2011

    Sizzling!! Every single story rocked and the covers were hot. Will most likely reread...
  • Taken by Cody in an Alley (Dirtyhunk Gay Sex Stories) on Dec. 10, 2011
    (no rating)
    Hot. Sizzling hot.
  • Best Gift Ever on Dec. 25, 2011

    An appealing mix of humour and heat!
  • Christmas Tradition on Dec. 29, 2011

    Sweet, short and sexy.
  • Night of the Werecock on Jan. 28, 2012

    So hot!!
  • Ultimate Fucking on Feb. 04, 2012

    Two hot guys, steamy showers...what more could you ask for? One noticeable typo at the very end but giving this book five stars regardless cuz it was hot as hell!!
  • The Internet "Girl." on April 02, 2012

    Actually kinda sweet,but it bugged me the way Anthony was referred to as "they" a few times.
  • First time on April 03, 2012

    Quite good this, I liked it.
  • Speed Date Sweetheart on April 12, 2012

    Great story! I couldn't help but like Matt, he was such a confused little soul :) For some reason usual misunderstandings were actually amusing.
  • The Anniversary on May 13, 2012

    Well written but not particularly amusing or erotic.
  • Dirty Play on May 17, 2012

    Couple of great laugh out loud moments, I really liked Whit and while I didn't find this book particularly erotic it was very good.
  • Dirty Fighters on May 17, 2012

    Came here from Dirty play, it was a nice read, humorous, but this one? Whew!! I'm off to look for other reads by Kyle Adams.
  • Dirty Zero on May 17, 2012

    I'm finding that I really like the socially retarded types, Whit and Wyatt are both funny, sweet and sensitive. Really great read!
  • Dirty Hero on May 17, 2012

    Hot, sweet, funny...wish I could give this more than five stars...waiting impatiently for more Kyle Adams reads
  • The Fake Husband on May 17, 2012

    Great sweet little read!
  • The Night Journey on May 19, 2012

    Good read, needs a bit of editing though
  • Parking Lot Hero on May 19, 2012

    Super read!
  • Second Time Around on June 06, 2012

    Very sweet short story that left me feeling warm and fuzzy :)
  • Winter Nocturne on June 10, 2012

    Good, bit tired of paranormal stories but this was totally fine
  • Goodbye Phillip (an m/m novella) on June 11, 2012

    Wonderful story with likeable characters
  • All For Nun on June 14, 2012

    Pretty damn hot!
  • Jungle Law on June 20, 2012

    Not too bad. Annoyed me a bit that the dialogue form wasn't consistent. One minute neither character could string enough words together to form a proper sentence and the next minute both were speaking full on sentences and then back to broken ones again...
  • Just Like in the Movies on Aug. 29, 2012

    Cute, sweet story
  • Learning To Howl (mm) (werewolf) on Aug. 29, 2012

    Great paranormal read, short on plot but the sex is hot!
  • Pole Star on Aug. 29, 2012

    I loved this story so much I downloaded it to my Kindle. Now I can read it whenever I want!!
  • Lessons Learned on Aug. 30, 2012

    Pretty good reading :)
  • Frat Boy's First Lust (Gay Erotica) on Aug. 30, 2012

    Nice little story with a cute ending!
  • One Man and his Bot on Sep. 06, 2012
    (no rating)
    Didn't get far, seemed like a lot of rambling...
  • Tender Flames on Sep. 13, 2012
    (no rating)
    Made it to page four, couldn't get past the formal, stilted dialogue and writing. Sorry.
  • Like So Much Hot Air on Sep. 14, 2012

    Great story with sweet, lovable characters
  • Fortunate Soul (Soul Reader #3) on Sep. 17, 2012

    Haven't read the other books in the series but this was great. Sweet, likeable characters and enough of a back story that reading the preceding books wasn't necessary to get the full gist.
  • Saloon Suck on Sep. 17, 2012

    Nice little read
  • Drain Me Dry (Deadly Liaisons #1) on Oct. 02, 2012

    I liked. Wouldn't mind follow up to this story.
  • The frist trial of ebooks on Oct. 02, 2012

    Figures he'd be married. There's one error on page 2 but other than that it's okay.
  • Broken on Oct. 02, 2012

    One of the sweetest stories I've read in quite a while. I couldn't help but feel for both Mack and Dean and was greatly relieved and happy when they decided to stay together.
  • Phoenix Rising (Phoenix of the Heart) on Oct. 02, 2012

    Very cool to read about the computer world during the 80's, it's all new to me as I wasn't even born then! I really want to know what happens to Beth, especially after that last line. Is this story going to take a paranormal turn or was she speaking figuratively? Can't wait for the follow up!
  • Working From Home (A Gay British First Time Short Story) on Oct. 30, 2012

    Average story,a few spelling mistakes, not particularly exciting though...but that's just me
  • Mate - A Halloween Story on Nov. 14, 2012

    Great little read that surprised me because for some reason I thought it was a paranormal. It isn't, it's a nicely written hot little piece!
  • Jealousy: A Love Story on Nov. 14, 2012

    Scintillating!! Will definitely go get the other book to this one.
  • Dirty Drag on Dec. 12, 2012

    Ashley is awesome, what a great little story
  • Waters of Europa: Catalyst on Dec. 13, 2012

    Can't wait to read the next part!
  • The Dangers of Fairy Compacts on Dec. 13, 2012

    Such a sweet story that is very well written with likeable characters. Look forward to reading more
  • Ultra Gay XXX: Brothers In Love on Dec. 25, 2012

    Does what it's supposed to! ;)
  • Good Breeding on Dec. 28, 2012

    Good story,should be tagged YA.
  • Hold Me Tight on Dec. 29, 2012

    Very short but sweet little story of a reunion between two lovers. Thanks for the read!
  • Crazy Stupid on Dec. 29, 2012

    Thanks for an enjoyable read!I've read the other books by this author here on Smashwords but this is by far my favourite. I like that even though the book is short there's still a lot of background to the story and characters. The book does, however need editing. Already in the book description and first sentence there are errors. Keep up the good work!
  • Love in the Library on Dec. 31, 2012

    It's nice to read a book that isn't just sex from the first page to the last but one that actually has a story to tell. An enjoyable read that I forgot to review the first time I read it. Since I have now all I've left to say is thanks for a great read!
  • First Kiss on Jan. 01, 2013

    Sweet little story which captures teenage angst well.
  • Holiday on Jan. 01, 2013

    You choose who your family is, you don't always have to share the same blood
  • Making Camp on Jan. 02, 2013

    Thanks for an an enjoyable read!
  • Peter and the Wolf on Jan. 03, 2013

    Finally a twist I did not see coming! An amusing, enjoyable read. Thank you
  • I Wish You Knew on Jan. 05, 2013

    Kinda think James got off easy...
  • My Man Godric on Jan. 05, 2013

    Very well written story. Bertie is a pip and had me smiling most of the time.Thanks for an enjoyable read!!
  • Back Alley Marine (Dirtyhunk Gay Sex Stories) on Jan. 07, 2013

    Thanks for an enjoyable read!
  • Me, Myself and I (Dark Reflections Series Book 1) on Jan. 07, 2013

    I've been passing this book over because the description somehow made me think "horror" but it is actually pretty damn hot! I'd like to know if there is something between Devon and Gage and if Devon is ever redeemed.
  • In The Moonlight (Gay Werewolf Shapeshifter) on Jan. 08, 2013

    Decent enough read, not interesting enough though for me to want to read the sequel. While everything and everyone else is pretty much fleshed out Roman was bland and boring instead of mysterious.
  • There Are Gay People Everywhere on Jan. 10, 2013

    Oh, I really hope there's a sequel to this. Sure it was hot but I'm interested in seeing what happens with Max.
  • Mike on Jan. 16, 2013

    Hot!!On to Mike 2...
  • Dream A Little Dream on Jan. 17, 2013

    Too bad the fun didn't start until the last couple pages
  • Out of Gas on Jan. 20, 2013

    Hot little read!
  • Ty'd Down on Jan. 25, 2013

  • Why Me on Jan. 27, 2013

    Sweet enough. Could do with a bit of editing.
  • Being Isobel on Jan. 28, 2013

    Great read! Tracey is very real and while the story is a bit far out at times it was very enjoyable. Thanks!
  • Broken on Jan. 31, 2013

    Sad, sweet. Just a little editing needed.
  • Casting on Feb. 02, 2013

    Alright story,felt it was just beginning when it ended. Never did find out about Zach's childhood and it seems like a fallout with the producer would have been inevitable but was never addressed. Also Steve isn't as dominant as you would think. Yes, this is explained away as him wanting a relationship built on equality but instead of thinking of him as a Dom I just perceived him as more mature and experienced than Zach.
  • Just Us on Feb. 10, 2013

    Very sweet and soppy little story :)
  • Not Microwave Safe (A Halloween Story) on Feb. 10, 2013

    Nicely orchestrated
  • Light Reaches Earth on Feb. 13, 2013

    I found this story to be pretty darn clever.It's obviously well thought out and developed.
  • Home Port on Feb. 15, 2013

    Great story! Does Mark have one? Cause if he does I'm buying it!
  • A Little Piece of Heaven on Feb. 17, 2013

    While it is sweet and romantic there was also a hopelessness to it...good story nevertheless
  • Screw the Fags on Feb. 21, 2013

    I have loved every J. Myles book that I've read and this one was no exception. Cosmo is snarky and endearing and Alasdair is equally masterful and caring.
  • Regulus 1: You Need to Know on Feb. 21, 2013

  • Dirty Drag 2: The Night Drags On on March 15, 2013

    Even better than the first one. Ashley is hilarious and it seems Rick has a sense of humor too. Hope there's more to come!
  • Bonds of Fire on March 28, 2013

    Loved it! Great read with adorable characters. Want more!
  • Irish Comfort on April 18, 2013

  • Secret Valentine on April 21, 2013

    Thought the ending was a bit weak but otherwise a very simple, sweet story.
  • The Cop And The Girl From The Coffee Shop on April 22, 2013

    Nick certainly came out of nowhere!
  • Perfect on May 02, 2013

    Very touching,just a little bit of editing needed.
  • A Dirty Drag Collection (Dirty Drag #1, 2, & 3) on May 16, 2013

    Great end to the series. Loved the bimfoon bit. I've saved these to my computer for re-reading :)
  • A State of Mind (MM Erotic Short Story) on May 23, 2013

    Great short story
  • Photo Booth on May 27, 2013

    Nice story of two older guys who meet and connect
  • Offer Him Roses on May 28, 2013

    Beautiful story of young love and becoming a woman.
  • My Friend on June 09, 2013

    Something about this book left a bad taste in my mouth. I couldn't help but feel that Kyle was constantly being used. The story keeps contradicting itself and the dialogue is oftentimes stilted and jerky. Both Matthew and Steve are willing to sleep with Kyle and keep taking advantage of his need to be accepted. Also,they keep using the Marines as an excuse to keep things clandestine and are slightly homophobic. Nothing ever really happens besides sex and the many grammatical errors made reading the story somewhat difficult.
  • No Regrets on June 09, 2013

    I concur.Hot!!
  • Chemistry on June 09, 2013

    Short and straight to the point
  • Elven Lust on June 09, 2013

    Cute, sweet short story
  • The Sorcerer's Apprentice on June 09, 2013

    Hot and spicy!
  • Deliberately Bound (Bound Series Book 3-1/2) on June 09, 2013

  • Dirty Cop on June 09, 2013

    I love Kyle Adams and Dirty Cop did not disappoint. Conrad had me totally amused and if it weren't for the fact that I read the previous review before reading the story, the ending might have surprised me. Thanks for a super read!
  • The Three of Us on June 14, 2013

    Great read! Loved how Jeff went from rabbit to tiger ;)
  • Attracting Anthony on June 15, 2013

    Great read, want more!
  • Telling Jase on June 15, 2013

    Lovely story
  • We All Scream on June 17, 2013

    The declaration of love came out of the blue but other than that an all right story.
  • Lovers' Confessions on June 18, 2013

    The story just breaks off abruptly with no conclusion. Also, the grammar is terrible and the formatting should be revised.
  • Animal Instincts on June 23, 2013

    Cute story but I felt like it could have explored Cal's story a bit more. Loved Kody though
  • Pastry Heart on July 02, 2013

    Cute and comfortable story
  • Gentlemen of Foxgrove Hall on July 03, 2013

    Quite all right
  • Secrets Are My Sanity on July 15, 2013

    Great story
  • The Runaway Roommate on July 16, 2013

    Wonderful read! Loved the Kdrama aspect, wasn't familiar with Kdramas before but after googling all the hot actors mentioned in the book I'm hooked!
  • Hot Hands on July 26, 2013

    Not so hard to figure out who it was. Cute story
  • Pura Vida on Aug. 09, 2013

    Loved it!
  • the cabin on Aug. 09, 2013
    (no rating)
    Tried reading it but it feels like you're just dropped in the middle of a story without a clue. Perhaps it's part of a series?
  • Mission: X on Aug. 26, 2013

    Great story that's equal parts sweet and steamy
  • A Rescue Twinks Novel: The Counterfeit Claus on Aug. 26, 2013

    Adrien is absolutely adorable!
  • Madison Glory's Day of Reckoning on Sep. 12, 2013

    Short and sweet
  • Dirty Pirate on Sep. 25, 2013

    Kyle Adams might just be my favourite author. I have, and love, all the Dirty books and this was one was just as good, if not funnier, than its predecessors. I wish I was even half as witty as his characters.
  • Nor Iron Bars a Cage on Oct. 17, 2013

  • Tamed and Mated #1 on Oct. 20, 2013

    Hope Selem gets his happy ending...
  • Stellar Proportions on Oct. 20, 2013
    (no rating)
    I couldn't get past the dialogue being encrusted in the text the way it was. Made it very difficult to follow the conversations. I suggest separating it from the rest.
  • Butterflies (The Secret Casebook of Simon Feximal) on Oct. 28, 2013

    Great story! Sort of perfect what with Halloween coming up. Thanks for sharing
  • Loss of Control (Falling #1) on Oct. 28, 2013

    Nice start, hoping to read more
  • My Lord's Judgment on Nov. 04, 2013

    Great story!
  • In The Beginning - Billy 1 on Nov. 05, 2013

    Wonderful, touching story
  • Fall on Nov. 06, 2013

    Interesting take on centaurs
  • Damaged Goods on Nov. 07, 2013

    There's someone for everyone
  • And I Am Happy on Nov. 12, 2013

    Enjoyed it, especially the steampunk elements though I wish there could have been more of that
  • Two Thousand Pounds Per Square Inch on Nov. 12, 2013

    Basically loads of info on HIV and safe sex but imparted in a manner that makes it understandable and not repetitious or boring.
  • A Moonfire Christmas on Dec. 08, 2013

    Part of a series. Didn't finish as I couldn't follow.
  • Chrismas Unwrapped on Dec. 14, 2013

    Jake thinks his husband is divorcing him, he therefore sleeps with some guy, finds out his husband just planned a surprise for him, the husband knows Jake cheated, yet everything's A ok?
  • The Family We're Born With on Dec. 16, 2013

  • For Those Who Wait on Dec. 17, 2013

    Cute, first love type story
  • Willoughby Spit on Jan. 10, 2014

    Well written, amusing story that's interesting enough to make me take a look at the others in this series. Enough back story to make reading the book preceding this a pleasure instead of a must.
  • Snowbound on Jan. 11, 2014

    I love stories that keep a couple cooped up trying to get warm
  • Merry-Go-Round on Jan. 24, 2014

    Sweet story. The writing could use a bit of editing to tighten it up.
  • Wanting on Jan. 24, 2014

    Perfect! Saving this one.
  • Dirty Vlogger on Jan. 24, 2014

    One of my favourite authors too! "Moaning like a frantic street whore" Seemed like something Ashley might say.
  • Septima Luna on Jan. 24, 2014

    Far out. Interesting concept, although I was crazy confused at times. Needs a bit of editing.
  • Welcome to the Dark Side on Jan. 27, 2014

    Pretty damned sweet for a hell based book. It did sort of lose it's dark edge toward the ending but with a HEA, who cares? First spelling error already in the third sentence though, needs to be fixed.
  • Chip Off the Old Block? on Feb. 03, 2014

    Wonder if there's a sequel...
  • Pinch Me: A Romantic St. Patrick’s Day Story on Feb. 07, 2014

    Standard story with an obvious ending. A bit boring actually.
  • Am I Fired, Again? on Feb. 07, 2014

    Need to tie up the loose ends
  • Coming Home on Feb. 15, 2014

    I hope they make it!
  • Love on a Wing and a Prayer on Feb. 15, 2014

    Absolutely adorable! Can we get Alex and Gio's story?
  • Waiting for Snow on Feb. 16, 2014

    Sweet and touching
  • An Adventure in Crossdressing: First Kiss on Feb. 28, 2014

    Short and exciting
  • Sands of Thyme on March 01, 2014

    Cute love story
  • Remnant: a story by Jordan L Hawk & KJ Charles on March 13, 2014

    I enjoyed reading about Simon and Robert again, Griffin and Ival were just as entertaining.
  • The Best Part on March 18, 2014

  • Trey's Greatest Gift on April 11, 2014

    Very sweet
  • Blind Seduction on April 30, 2014

    I didn't find it particularly funny and while it is very outlandish it was interesting enough
  • One Way In on May 01, 2014

    Interesting prequel
  • Hazing Moon on May 05, 2014

    A bit ridiculous
  • Last Call on Oct. 03, 2014

    Short, not bad though
  • Seth and the Barbarian on Oct. 15, 2014

    Certainly does what it is intended to do. Hot!
  • Happy Halloween on Nov. 01, 2014

    Felt like it was going somewhere awesome...and then end of story :/
  • Carte Blanche on Nov. 01, 2014

    Loved, loved, loved! Sweetest story and characters ever! Definitely saving.
  • Bromance to Romance on Nov. 02, 2014

    One of the sweeter bromance to romance stories I've read. Great characters all around, would love some more on Noah
  • Fighting Dirty Too on Nov. 02, 2014

    Nice and easy read
  • Mad Passion on Nov. 02, 2014

    I don't think it's possible to give a proper review without reading the entire book but really, even after struggling through this one I still have the same opinion as I had after the first seven pages: this is a painful read. The dialogue is stilted and unnatural and as for being a romance novel there is little real romance, in fact, this book is quite far-fetched, and not in a good way. Two men sharing a bed as a challenge, one of them gay, the other confused, not to mention half of one guy's house just given to the other by the guy's mother and sister... And also, what kind of adult romance novel has the words "put your thing in me"? Please, edit.
  • Waiting, Hoping, Wishing on Nov. 03, 2014

    I do enjoy a good best friends fall in love story. Might we be getting a Justin story any time soon?
  • Game On on Nov. 03, 2014

    Very sweet and charming story
  • Of Cheerleaders and Gingers on Nov. 04, 2014

    Officially my new favourite! Only complaint: should have been longer
  • The Wolves of Paris: Black Wolves Book 1 (Gay Werewolf Shifter Romance) on Nov. 13, 2014

    Felt like this tried to be erotic but slavery is never fun, neither is anything non-consensual. Either way not my cup of tea. Could do with some re-structuring
  • Rumpled Foreskin on Nov. 13, 2014

    Just a few errors here and there. Rumpled's story would be interesting
  • Farmer John on Dec. 06, 2014

    The writing is a bit clumsy at times. A very short story of exploration and discovery
  • A New Haven Christmas on Dec. 08, 2014

    Cute Christmas story, both the dialogue and narrative are a little stilted at times.
  • Illicit Activity on Dec. 08, 2014

    Not having read any of the books in this series I found it difficult to follow...
  • Body Language on Dec. 09, 2014

    Loved all the little details
  • Happy Holidays on Dec. 29, 2014

    Thank you! Nice to visit with some of these characters again
  • Forbidden Crush on Jan. 12, 2015

    Monotonous and boring to the point I wanted to quit just a few pages in. Decided to give it a try but the characters are superficial and one dimensional and wholly uninteresting while the plot is easily predictable.
  • Taken by Tentacles on Jan. 13, 2015

    Not sure about the subject matter but it might be interesting for some
  • The Frat Brat on June 22, 2015

    Not your typical frat boy story. Cute and cuddly
  • Hungry For Love on June 24, 2015

    Lovely story. I was a bit surprised that they were the same age, I thought Sam was older and Luke younger.
  • Grá Mo Chroí on June 25, 2015

    Cute, sexy short!
  • Knickers in a Twist on June 25, 2015

    Want more!
  • Playing to Win His Heart on June 27, 2015

    Enjoyable fluff
  • Dipping His Pen in the Office Ink on June 27, 2015

    The S&M stuff just came out of now here and I wasn't really satisfied with the way the whole Sean thing was handled. Should be tagged instalove as well.
  • If At First You Don't Succeed on Sep. 04, 2015

    Hilarious! Going to look at other works by this author right now!
  • Lush in Lace on Sep. 06, 2015

    A new favourite, already downloaded and saved on my Kindle. Both Scott and Rylan are great characters who muddle through the usual misunderstandings to their HEA.
  • Merry F***ing Christmas on Sep. 07, 2015

    Cute short story
  • Perception: A German Love Story on Sep. 08, 2015

    Sweet and sappy, just the way I like my German love stories. I quite liked this book, the characters are very sweet and at times corny but it works. There are certain instances where the word choice makes it obvious that the author doesn't have English as his native language but I think it adds to the charm of the story. Thank you Mario for a very enjoyable read.
  • Taken Hard by His Gay Roommate (Hard & Fast Erotic Quickies) on Sep. 09, 2015

    Like the others reviewers have said- hot!
  • At Last on Sep. 09, 2015

    I couldn't get past the fact that they were both cheaters, it took away the enjoyment for me. Other than that, it is well written, no typos that I could see.
  • Mate Wanted for Christmas on Dec. 18, 2015

    Great read. Too short.
  • Especially at Christmas on Dec. 18, 2015

    Okay read
  • Of Candy Canes and Fuzzy Handcuffs on Jan. 07, 2016

    Definitely made me interested in checking out the other books set in the universe.
  • Syrian Ram on May 04, 2016

  • Snow Storm on May 04, 2016

    Typical snowed-in story
  • Brazil by Day: Gay Romance on Aug. 22, 2016

    This was definitely different. A few typos but nothing major. HEA
  • Why Love Matters on Aug. 22, 2016

    As good as any Jay Northcote book. Cute and predictable HEA
  • A Hippie Independence Day on Aug. 22, 2016

    At only 8 pages long this seemed more like an excerpt that even a short story...
  • The Sales Guy on Aug. 25, 2016

  • Just Imagine... on Aug. 25, 2016

    Very sweet
  • Caged on Aug. 25, 2016

    Marcin is a bit of jerk but what do you expect after being caged hehe

    Brilliant! Will definitely go check out this author's other books. Alex and Ethan were amazing and their animals just about stole the show. I loved knowing what each man was thinking and I'm hoping there's more featuring these two.

    Don't feel like I got to know the characters very well, especially Ian. Might just continue with the series for Tate's story.
