  • Hannah's Choice on Dec. 23, 2010

    Maybe there's been a different upload since the reviews below, but I've just downloaded it and there aren't that many ads. Yes, a few pages towards the back talks about the author's work, but you also get a free excerpt of another book. This is a great little hot story with easy to read dialogue - a simple scenario that's well written and erotically juicy in all the right places.
  • 101 Degrees Fahrenheit on Jan. 08, 2011

    Beautifully written, heartfelt, real and very, very sexy. Thanks for the read.
  • Crazy Emma on April 09, 2011

    A really fun and hot, short read. Well written - thank you!
