Review: One Night In Paris [Front Man #2] 2/5 (1)
All , Erotica , Short Stories / March 31, 2019

Review: 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?’ question at the end. Anyway, moving on.

One Night in Paris is the second installment of ‘Front Man’ series by Adora Bell. This one takes place a few months after the night Jack and Sarah spent together and the location is – you guessed it! – Paris.

Review: 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 unrealistic expectations and questionable morals but hey, we all have our weaknesses

Review: Clay’s Instinct [Wolf Call #2] 2/5 (1)

Review: 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 more or less about yet another couple mating – Clay and the reporter Lucinda.

Review: 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.

Review: Claiming The Alpha [Wild Obsession #2] 2/5 (1)

Review: 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 about that. The book was in both Nikki and Jax’ point of view which was an excellent choice since if Adriana Hunter had stuck to one it wouldn’t have worked out.

All , Erotica , Romance / April 11, 2018

Review: For those who know me you know I am not a big fan of straight up romances or sappy love stories. Don’t get me wrong, I think the romantic angle is essential to almost any story and some erotic scenes are pleasure to read (pun intended 😀 ) but I will never intentionally go for a story that has only that and nothing else.

In one of my blog posts I mentioned that the best way to learn what works for you, how to write something that is not your strength or simply to figure out what you want to write, is to read everything. Good, bad, favorite genres, genres you don’t like – everything. I am sticking to that notion and I carefully sliding into an uncharted territory – romance/erotica novels.
