Review: Jackie's Love

Jackie's LoveJackie's Love by Robert Kimbrell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is an enjoyable, fast-paced, interesting, and HOT story. The sex is absolutely delicious, but what surprised me was what a exciting story Kimbrell tells. Two women in bad situations find each other and discover that the same man has duped both of them. They deal with him in a most unexpected and satisfying way.

The story could be longer, fuller, richer. It doesn't need more action (in or out of the bedroom), but with more detail in the existing scenes. In the scene with Elisa's parents, for example. Show me the basis for the way they treat their daughter. Make me believe that these people are willing to throw away their relationship with her. Balance the action in the story with rich characterization, and I'll come back for more.

The story is exciting, but the best part about it is the beautiful, smokin-hot lesbian sex. The author describes their love in delicious, graphic detail, and I completely believed these two women adored each other. Kudos to a man writing so well about women!

Review: Shelley: First Meeting

Shelley: First MeetingShelley: First Meeting by J.C. Winchester
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This story is well written, respectful, and sweet. Shelley is a transgender woman with a serious crush on a man. He finally asks her out without knowing her secret. He finds out in the heat of the moment, and it doesn't matter because he's already smitten. The sex is super steamy, and the story makes you feel good.

Review: Sheba's Lovely Maidens

Sheba's Lovely MaidensSheba's Lovely Maidens by Fionna Guillaume
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love stories about crazy things no one expects. Biblical erotica, for example. This story was delightful with a richly drawn setting and believable characters. The plot was interesting--a sexy history lesson. The erotic scenes, both straight and lesbian, were beautiful and arousing. I highly recommend this book for readers who enjoy a smart, sexy read.

Review: Kismet: A Desi Rhapsody in London

KISMET - A DESI RHAPSODY IN LONDONKISMET - A DESI RHAPSODY IN LONDON by Shaheen Darr
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Kismet is a rich read following the lives of several Pakistani families living in London. We see through the eyes of several of the characters as the book meanders through their stories, allowing a unique view of how they interconnect. There's no "big action" in this book. Instead, the story is made of pieces of daily life, and that's what makes it successful. I found myself pondering the characters when I wasn't reading, wondering where their stories were going.

The narrative was bulky at times, but I would recommend this book to readers looking to expand their world view and experience culture. I'm still thinking about it.

(I received a free copy for an honest review.)

Review: Pandora Spocks- Rannigan's Redemption Book 2

Rannigan's Redemption Part 2: Running RogueRannigan's Redemption Part 2: Running Rogue by Pandora Spocks
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I adore Pandora Spock's characters. Maggie is delightful, and all the reader wants from page one is for her to be happy. Michael is not the nicest guy, but he's so damn likable, you just want to take him home and . . .

But I digress. I started reading, thinking I had it all figured out, loving it. And then there was a detour. And then a roadblock and some sadness and some stress. And then something wonderful happened. No. I'm not going to give spoilers.

I grinned through much of this book, and I cried through others. You will too. It's excellent.

Work in Progress: The House of Flies

WIP (Work in Progress)

Thanks to sci-fi/romance author Jolie Mason for arranging this WIP blog hoppy thing!

"The House of Flies" is a BDSM tale for an anthology called Erotic Transformations. It's the which will feature stories by M.S. Tarot, Alana Melos, Bryce Calderwood, B. J. Taylor, and others. I'm not sure of the release date, but I'll let you know. I'll also be submitting the story to the Literotica April Fool's Day contest, so you can look for it there in March.

The story was inspired by the Deftones' song "Change (In the House of Flies)". A university professor discovers that his student writes erotica and sets his sights on fulfilling her submissive fantasies. Read below for the first paragraph.


They called her Nerdy Nadine for good reason. Mousy brown hair fell over her face, creating a curtain to hide from other people. The book in which she perpetually stuck her nose was her shelter, protecting her from life outside her own head. Her clothes were too big for her body, making her appear chunky rather than pleasantly curvy. It was all a disguise, hiding the woman inside, but he was her English professor; he read her writing. He knew what lay beneath the surface of Nadine’s cold, prudish exterior, and he planned to bring it out.
