Review: One Night In Paris [Front Man #2]
All , Erotica , Short Stories / March 31, 2019

Title: One Night in Paris Author: Adora Bell Genre: Music/Erotica Publication date: 2013 Summary: The thrilling follow-up to the top-selling ‘Front Man’! Fate brought Jack and Sara together; now will scandal rip them apart?  Jack Carter, front man with the hit band Compass, is haunted by the ghosts of his past. Now they threaten to ruin the life he’s made for himself. Yet there is one ray of hope for the troubled star…the girl who rocks his world. This sizzling series contains scenes of a very sexual nature and is intended for a mature audience.  Please Note: Front Man: One Night In Paris is the second part of a series. While it can be read as a stand-alone story, the parts are best enjoyed in order. This story is approx 15,000 words long.      I’m still trying to understand what most people find so appealing about romantic or erotic novels. I mean, I do get the love angle but love (or sex) is not the only thing in a person’s life and those novels tend to obsess with that. Maybe that is why I don’t read so much of them – they just leave me with a ‘That’s it?’…

Review: Front Man [Front Man #1]
All , Erotica , Short Stories / March 19, 2019

Title: Front Man Author: Adora Bell Genre: Music/ Erotica Publication date: 2012 Summary: Jack Carter has it made. Rich, famous, adored by millions…but deep down, the ghosts of his past just won’t let him go. Sara has been in love with Jack Carter since he first exploded on to the music scene. Now she has the chance to meet the man of her dreams. She’s about to learn that her idol isn’t all that he seems. When these two meet, sparks are going to fly….    I’ve never been that much into fangirling over real people, except maybe a few writers, so I expected to be unable to relate or like Front Man by Adora Bell. Surprisingly, I was wrong.    The story revolves around Jack, the front man of a band called Compass, and Sara, his biggest fan since the beginning of the group. The plot twist here is that Jack is not the typical arrogant, better-than-you rockstar but a man with doubts and issues. I liked that although considering his anxiety episodes I am not sure how he could handle the pressure of being in the spotlight all the time. Sara is, well, she is a girl with…

Review: Clay’s Instinct [Wolf Call #2]
All , Erotica , Paranormal , Short Stories / March 19, 2019

Title: Clay’s Instinct Author: Abbey Polidori Genre: Paranormal/ Romance/ Erotica Publication date: 2013 Summary: Clay Adams is the sheriff of the small town of Faith, Montana. He is also a shifter. When the Temple of Thul arrive in Faith and try to take Clay, he narrowly escapes with his life and one of the Temple’s members as a hostage. But even though Clay knows the curvy beauty Lucinda is his enemy, his instincts tell him she is his mate.    It turns out this week would be romance/erotica week so here we go with Clay’s Instinct, the second story of the series ‘Wolf Call’ by Abbey Polidori.     Instead of the story picking up from where Logan and Sarah left us it switches to Clay, a local sheriff in a small city called Faith. He is also persecuted by a secret organization bent on catching and experimenting on superhuman creatures like werewolves and vampires (so far those are the only two types we have heard of but only have seen werewolves). The story itself expands and now instead of purely romantic/erotic storyline we have a bit of conflict. It’s still very much on the background since this story is…

Review: Logan’s Calling [Wolf Call #1]
All , Erotica , Paranormal , Short Stories / March 19, 2019

Title: Logan’s Calling Author: Abbey Polodori Genre: Paranormal / Romance/ Erotica Publication date: 2013 Summary: Logan James, wounded war hero, is obsessed with his neighbor Sarah Cooper. He watches her every night from the house that has become his self-imposed prison, locking him away from society. When he receives a package intended for Sarah, he musters the courage to go around to her house and meet her. But Logan discovers that Sarah has a secret, a secret that has placed her in danger. And the feelings he has for her run deeper than simple attraction.  Sarah is a shifter and even though he doesn’t know it yet, Logan is her mate.    Well, well, it’s been awhile since I’ve been this unsure about how I feel about a story. When I started Logan’s Calling I was fully aware what I was getting into – a short, erotic story with paranormal element. Sounds good enough right? Well, be careful what you wish for.      The story started alright, more than alright even. We have Logan – a soldier who served time in Afghanistan until an accident that left him scarred and his whole team – dead. I was honestly surprised…

Review: Claiming The Alpha [Wild Obsession #2]
All , Erotica , Romance / April 13, 2018

Title: Claiming the Alpha Author: Adriana Hunter Genre: Paranormal romance Publication date: 2013 Summary: Jax has fallen in love with Nikki, the complicated ex-stripper with a tragic past. But he hasn’t told her everything, and with the clock ticking he has only thirty days to convince her that he is everything she needs. Will Nikki accept Jax for who he really is, and leave everything behind in order to join his pack? There’s a sinister force at work, a killer on the loose, and the most unlikely couple falling in love despite everything that stands against them. Can they make it through the darkness ahead?      Claiming the Alpha by Adriana Hunter was the second part of the short series ‘Wild Obsessions’. When I say short I am being literal. Both parts are around 80 pages each and looking back at them now they should have been one book. There wasn’t enough action in each to make them look accomplished apart.     As my first attempt at romance/erotica I am rather happy with my choice. There were some good moments that help me gain new perspective as ti how to write romantic/sex scenes and as a writer I am really curious…

To make things worse, there’s a killer on the loose, stalking the dancers, waiting to attack.
