Erotic Romance

A
Having Her

There are books I read once and there are books I read again and again. Having Her is one of the latter. I read it for the first time two months ago and, since then, have read it again... and again. It's sexy, unexpected, romantic, smart, and, in places, achingly sad. The novel meets my criteria for ...

The Saint

I don’t read erotica. I also don’t start a series in the middle. But when I picked up Tiffany Reisz’s The Saint… oh, I did, I did, I did. The fifth in the Original Sinners series, The Saint was surprisingly easy to begin. I thought I’d have to keep a large cast of characters in mind, bu ...

Private Reserve

When Olivia and Gio broke up, she never thought she's see him again. But her friends conspire to send her on a trip to Tuscany and back into the arms of her one time lover when she ends up at his family's villa. Gio let Olivia go thinking she'd not understand his sexual appetites, including his bise ...

A Fare to Remember

I’ve enjoyed previous books by this author, and the concept of this one definitely intrigued me – a female cab driver who meets a sexy billionaire? Yes please! As it turns out, I’ve got mixed feelings about the execution. Yes, some of the sex scenes are super hot, including ones where Reid’s ...

Lickety Split

They say you can’t go home again. I don’t know how true that is really, but as you get older, I think how you see home, and how you see other’s actions, changes pretty drastically. In Lickety Split we get to see that return to home, and a view of the people you knew through different eyes. Esp ...

The Deep End

I hated the first half of The Deep End and had I not been reading for review it's likely I wouldn't have finished it. But I persisted, and thank goodness the second half was better. Amélie is top Domme at an expensive, exclusive sex club called The Bee’s Honey, but she’s bored with her prosp ...

Midtown Masters

I have to applaud Cara McKenna for her ability to write such a different story with every book of hers that I’ve read, even when the premises are similar. She seems to reinvent with each new novel, which I don’t think is easy in the romance genre, particularly with erotica. Midtown Masters compl ...

Colters' Woman

I read Maya Banks’ novel Colters’ Woman, the first in the Colters’ Legacy series, for one simple reason. I had never before read a ménage romance, and had to start somewhere to correct the deficiency. However, I finished the book and still don’t think I’ve read a ménage romance. But m ...

Compound a Felony: A Queer Affair of Sherlock Holmes

Based on this review, you might be surprised to know I’ve never been a big fan of Sherlock Holmes, or the original Conan Doyle stories.  I don’t even watch the BBC version - I know, I know, I’m a terrible person.  But when a trusted friend recommended Compound a Felony: A Queer Affair of She ...

Nine Kinds of Naughty

With a title like Nine Kinds of Naughty, author Jeanette Grey is definitely setting up some high expectations for steamy scenes in this third novel in the Art of Passion series. If you’ve read Seven Nights to Surrender and its companion/sequel Eight Ways to Ecstasy, you’ll know that she's up to ...
