Smashwords book reviews by Yenny D.

  • The Mating: The Original Law of the Lycans Story on March 22, 2012
    (no rating)
    Downloaded this book on iBooks and I couldn't put it down! Well written, with a strong, likeable hero and heroine and a super bitchy villain. The characters were nicely developed and so was the werewolf background and premise. I highly recommend this and the other books in Nicky Charles' Law of the Lycan Series. Book 1: The Mating - Kane & Elise Book 2: The Keeping - Ryne & Melody Book 3: The Finding - Brian & Cassandra Book 4: Bonded - Reno & Brandi *Bonded is not exactly following the previous 3 books, but still related
  • The Keeping on March 22, 2012

    The Keeping is the second book in Nicky Charles' Law of the Lycans series, following The Mating and tells the story of Ryne, Kane's half brother. I enjoyed the story of Ryne and Melody, but not as much as I enjoyed the first book. The characters are nicely developed but I felt like the subplot took away from the main romance and it was a bit hard for me to believe that they had fallen in love. But that's just me! Still a very good book and a solid installment in this very enjoyable series.
  • The Condition of Being Seduced on March 30, 2012

    Not my cup of tea. Story is slow to begin and formatting is horrible. Too many unnecessary exclamation points and it makes all the characters seem perpetually excited! all! the! time!! I got through the first 60 pages and skipped to end. Story involves drugs and rape. Didn't like the ending either. I think I prefer stories with a little more emotion, this just came off as a bit impersonal for erotica/romance.
  • S&M Masquerade on March 30, 2012

    Super short, fun read!
  • Bronwyn's Stand: Choosing Love Series Book 1 on April 03, 2012

    AMAZING story!! strong heroine and hero. this story introduces the rest of the characters for her following books and i absolutely cannot wait!. good plot, and GREAT love story :D
  • Anna's Strength:Choosing Love Series Book 2 on April 03, 2012

    another amazing addition in e kelly's choosing love series. well written storyline with strong, well-developed characters that feel genuine that they're falling in love. made my heart melt. can't wait for the next book in the series!
  • Gateway to Heaven on April 03, 2012

    great read! well developed characters with well thought out backstories and personal struggles. very believable romance, with cute moments and steamy scenes. sometimes the characters were a little obtuse, with misunderstandings that could have been avoided but i could say that about almost every romance out there!
  • The Princess' Dragon Lord on April 04, 2012

    Great story! Very well written and well edited story with a twist of fantasy. Unlike some fantasy stories I've read, the names are not too difficult to pronounce or keep track of. Light on the steamy scenes but still, a very cute love story between the hero and heroine. Highly recommend!
  • Fait Accompli on April 06, 2012

    Enjoyable, but the tone seems a bit detached. Steamy, short story with an interesting premise.
  • With a View on April 06, 2012

    Super cute romance. Good writing and plotline.
  • Trapped by Love: A Novelette on April 10, 2012

    Very cute and fun read! The author does an excellent job is developing the characters in such a short time.
  • Marriage by Mistake on April 10, 2012

    Very enjoyable! Well written and developed characters. Like most stories with a secondary romance, I tend to like the secondary characters more and wish for THEIR happiness instead! And yep, I did end up ling Troy and Felicia more than Dean and Kelly. I think it's because I didn't really like Dean all that much. Sure, he had emotional damage, but it seemed a bit forced and it could have been explained better. And seeing that he is the founder of his own biogenetics company, you'd think he was smart enough to realize his own feelings!
  • Rebound on April 17, 2012

    Cute, sexy story. Amusing :)
  • Forced Awakening (Forced, Fucked, and Bred Trilogy Part 1) on May 04, 2012

    From the beginning pages, I understand that this book is the first of a trilogy but I don't think I'll be reading the rest. There's very little character development and practically NO development on the main male character. Basically the story reads as boy meets girl, boy kidnaps girl, boy and girl have lots of sex with some paranormal dangers thrown in on the side.
  • Shrouded in Darkness on May 08, 2012

    Very good read! Minor spelling/grammar/editing mistakes. I do wish there was more white space in between the lines of text, but that's just my preference. Great story involving all sorts of paranormal and fantasy beings: weres, witches, vampires, fae, gods, goddesses and deities. I liked the two protagonists although I did think their romance blossomed a bit too fast to be realistic. Loved the secondary romance as well. Would thoroughly enjoy seeing this world expanded into more books.
  • Satisfying Audrey on May 09, 2012

    Short, fun and steamy! With a great twist!
  • Call of Descent on May 23, 2012

    Epic. This story is long (297 pages in PDF!) but is written with such richness and it's such a grand and sweeping adventure. Minor spelling and grammar articles that don't distract too much from the story. Highly recommend!
  • The Soul Reader on May 29, 2012

    Enjoyed this very much! Loved the world of rebellion and evil ruler/emperor that was put forth. The hero and heroine were likeable and strong and their romance was very sweet and realistically entwined with the events happening. Good length, highly recommend.
  • All In on May 29, 2012

    Cute, enjoyable story with a few steamy sex scenes. The plot and dialogue tend to skew a bit melodramatic at times, but the story is set in Vegas, so I guess a little stretching of the imagination is acceptable.
  • Blue Dalton on June 05, 2012

    Very well written! I've read some of Tara Janzen's full length Steele Street books before and really enjoyed her style of writing. She has a talent for creating well developed, strong likeable characters with a plot that is interesting but still plausible that the two protagonists would still fall for each other. Highly recommend!
  • One Knight's Stand on June 05, 2012

    Very good! Surprisingly modern at times, which is quite enjoyable! No weird medieval language that would detract from the story. Steamy scenes and true love with swordfighting and a touch of paranormal.
  • Taking the Babysitter on June 12, 2012

    Hot story!
  • Double Take on June 25, 2012

    I didn't like the story as much as her Choosing Love series, which I HIGHLY recommend. The hero and heroine are very sweet together, and I can believe the feelings between them and how quickly they grew as well. I just wished for more suspense and danger! It could've been (in my opinion) more fleshed out from that persepctive. Also, the cover art is slightly weird... Solid story, all in all. Can't wait for the 3rd installment in the Choosing Love series, which I hope is coming soon!
  • Cracked on Sep. 27, 2012

    If I could rate it 3.5 stars, that would be my rating! Very cute and funny story - although it is quite short! The characters' story did seem to wrap up a bit too neatly but still fun to read.
  • Secrets or Surrender on Sep. 27, 2012

    3.5 stars. Sentences are a bit short so the writing doesn't flow as well as it could. Minor spelling errors. Sometimes the dialogue is a bit too projecting - it's like the characters are saying aloud their private thoughts. Good story, if a bit simple and predictable.
  • Offshore on Oct. 02, 2012

    Great read!! Funny and steamy with great characters :)
  • Birthday List on Nov. 21, 2012

    Very sweet story! But still has it's hot moments :) well done!
  • Her Mr Perfect Christmas on Dec. 21, 2012

    Very sweet and funny! Light Christmas romance.
  • Melting Point on Dec. 21, 2012

    Short read, but hot and well written!
  • The Mating: Hostile Hearts Part 1 on Dec. 21, 2012

    Good story BUT it ends on such a cliffhanger/unresolved note. Obviously there is more to the story as this is only Part 1 - but I would have liked more resolution!
  • A Different Kind of Fairy Tale on Dec. 26, 2012

    Great story! Well developed characters (and side characters) and plot kept me interested. Can't wait for the next two books in the series!
  • An Unusual Cupid on Jan. 07, 2013

    Very sweet story.
  • Fearless on Jan. 07, 2013

    Very very good!! More of a action/paranormal with a romantic sub-plot :) Loved it! Highly recommend - well written, humorous and imaginative!
  • Lily White on Jan. 07, 2013

    Good story. Well developed characters and emotions - heartfelt. Slight spelling and grammatical errors but easily ignored.
  • Dream A Little Dream on Jan. 17, 2013

    Brief, cute story.
  • Collateral Damage on Jan. 17, 2013

    I would classify this as more of a sci-fi adventure story, light on the romance and steamy stuff. Extremely enjoyable with great characters!
  • A Long Time Coming on Jan. 17, 2013

    Agree with hrhsophia - not a lot of back story besides that they are best friends. Slightly unrealistic situations since this is the couple's first time, but still a good read.
  • A Man for Halli on Jan. 18, 2013

    Cute story but a bit too rushed. Wish it was longer with more character development and actually seeing them fall in love.
  • Amusing Love on Jan. 18, 2013

    Sweet story. A bit unrealistic given the youth of the characters and how they met and fell in love so quickly. Light read - not very steamy.
  • Making Mina: The Best Revenge on Jan. 18, 2013

    Hot hot hot!
  • The Light Within Me on Jan. 28, 2013

    EXTREMELY well written! Great fantastical setting and great, strong characters along with humor and warmth.
  • Let Me Love You on Feb. 01, 2013

    So good!!! I was NOT disappointed by the 2nd installation in Morgan Rayne's Spring Towers series! Sweet yet sexy with a great backstory and lovely characters. Can't wait to read Vicki and Coop's story!
  • Law of Attraction on Feb. 11, 2013

    Short but sexy with a sense of humor!
  • Cockswords & Berries: A tale of kings and maidens on Feb. 15, 2013

    Should really warn readers that this is a preview to a full length novel!! Intriguing premise though.
  • A Bit of Bite on March 11, 2013

    Very very good story! GREAT main characters with lots of heat and sizzle between them! Extremely well written story, with a healthy amount of danger and good pacing. Highly recommend and can't wait to read more of her work!
  • Sanity Siphoned on March 11, 2013

    Truly excellent read. Heartwarming and touching - a great story about a complicated teenage romance that never feels too young or unrealistic. Highly recommend!
  • Chance on April 01, 2013

    Good read. Hot yet sweet.
  • The Bathroom on April 03, 2013

    I agree with hrhsophia about gas station bathrooms, but otherwise a short and sexy story.
  • Hot and Sexy 1: Seductive Persuasion on April 03, 2013

    Hot, sexy and sweet. Can't wait to read more!
  • Encounter: Better than Chocolate on May 23, 2013

    Super duper short, but hot and sexy!
  • The First Book of Demons on May 31, 2013

    Great story with such a vivid and fantastic world! Can't wait to read more as the ending left it open ended!
  • Released to Rapture (Irresistible Inmate) on June 03, 2013

    hot hot hot!
  • Princess Charming on June 04, 2013

    GREAT story!! Lovely characters - strong sexy male and spunky strong female. Very good plot - intrigue, danger and mystery with great supporting characters that I can't wait to read about!
  • Deceptions on June 11, 2013

    Excellent read! Great start to a new series? trilogy? Strong female character, the beginnings of a love triangle (which reminds me a bit of the Anita Blake series by Laurell K. Hamilton) and I love the paranormal/supernatural elements thrown in. Can't wait to read the next one!
  • Anticipations on June 11, 2013

    Another excellent read! Great addition to the Evie Cortez series.
  • Repercussions on June 11, 2013

    Another great addition to the series. Loved reading it from Caleb's point of view!
  • Tales From the SFR Brigade on June 25, 2013

    Imprint by Pippa Jay – Tevik & Jiona. Loved this story! Characters were well developed in the short length and packed with action, some romance and heat. Allure by Amy Laurens – Sara & Ash. Didn’t like this one as much. Super short, story never got a chance to develop and felt more like a prologue to another story. Nobody’s Present by Marcella Burnard. Finlay & Trygg. Well written story. Plot moves along nicely but the romance comes second behind plot development. Still enjoyable and wish we could’ve seen Finlay & Trygg together more! The Stranger by Kyndra Hatch. Nolyra & Jack. Short and sweet. Would have loved to see this world developed in a longer story! Mission: Nam Selan by Linnea Sinclair. Tasha & Branden. Confusing! The author does have a note in the beginning that this short story is related to some of her other works but as a reader who is unfamiliar with those works, I was very confused! Too many names introduced too quickly and I couldn’t keep track. Prime Sensations by Liana Brooks. Kaleb & Lana. Very good! Fantastically described world and great characters. Hope there’s more stories to come! Envy’s Revenge by Berinn Rae. Envy & Hunter. Interesting read. Whiskey & Starshine by Erica Hayes. Allie & Jericho. Well written, sci-fi western style.
  • For The Honor of Black Roses on July 09, 2013

    Epic. A truly excellent sequel to The Protectorit.
  • The Protectorit on July 09, 2013

    EXCELLENT. Could not stop reading!
  • Old Lovers, New Money on July 11, 2013

    Wish there was more download options! Definitely an unfinished story, but a great and sexy start!
  • Bear on July 15, 2013

    Short and sweet - great twist on the goldilocks story!
  • Secrets Are My Sanity on July 15, 2013

    Beautiful. Sort of a sequel to Sanity Siphoned. Continues the story of two side characters introduced in that story.
  • Tempted on July 16, 2013

    Super hot and sizzling! But with a good plot and nicely developed characters for such a short length.
  • Jerky on July 16, 2013

    Humorous and kinky
  • Saving Grace on July 16, 2013

    Excellent story! Two very strong and well written characters who are broken in their own ways finally learn to love one another amid a sudden danger that has cropped up in their lives. There is a bit of suspension of belief you have to do in order to get into the story, but hey, it's romantic suspense! Recommended!
  • Someone To Believe In on July 19, 2013

    Great story. But I've never read a story involving two more frustrating and stubborn characters! There were times where I had to stop reading just because it was giving me a headache to watch these two try to work out their issues. But otherwise, very well-written story!
  • Hanchart Land on July 24, 2013

    Good story, but yes there are some typos. Overall the heroine is a bit weak for my liking, but not a bad story.
  • Donna's Neighbor on July 24, 2013

    Hot and short. Improbable plot line, but still enjoyable
  • Justified: Playing With Passion (Submissive Romance) - Free Book 1 on July 24, 2013

    hot, sexy and intriguing! Can't wait to read the next installment to see where it goes!
  • Golden Pleasures on July 24, 2013

    Sweet, yet hot. Cute read.
  • Encounter: Fae Me Baby, One More Time on July 29, 2013

    Short and sweet. Touch of fantasy.
