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 ...

Beyond Surrender

Beyond Surrender is the ninth and final novel in the erotic dystopian Beyond series. It's the end of a long story arc that began in Beyond Shame, and shouldn't be read as a standalone as it starts without much preamble and dives headlong into the current tense situation from the very first page. Whe ...

Brutal Game

Willing Victim left Flynn and Laurel at happy-for-now, rather than happy ever after, so I knew there was a lot of potential in a sequel. That said, I had no idea where that sequel might take them. With the frank sexuality of Willing Victim, and McKenna’s bold forays into kink, I assumed that the f ...

Looking Inside

So I was reading Looking Inside more or less swimmingly until I came across this: “Her long, slightly bent legs slid along his suede bedspread.” Suede? Suede?? As a BEDSPREAD??? That was it. I totally lost it. It goes without saying that I’d suspend reality for a story about a voyeuristic i ...

Sex Machine

“I want you to fuck me,” opens Marie Force’s Sex Machine, a phrase spoken by heroine Honey Carmichael to hero Blake Dempsey which sets the reader to smirking and the hero to stuttering.  Things really don’t let up from there as the novella progresses though Blake and Honey’s relationship, ...
