Book Extract: Breathe You In

I was out of breath as I hunted for my key and climbed the one set of stairs to home. It was hard to even see into my bag; rainwater was streaking down my face and my hair was hanging in rats’ tails around my eyes. Eventually I found the key and shoved it into

Book Extract: Smut by the Sea Volume 2

Brigit loved the seaside. She always had, probably because visiting it was a rarity. Living in the centre of England meant that even the nearest seaside town was over an hour and a half away—and the nice resorts even further. Which was why her boyfriend, Allen, proposed a long weekend in Brighton. He knew how

Books: Holding On

I adored the first novel in this series, Meant To Be, so I was eager to read this second instalment. I was definitely not disappointed. It’s not quite erotica or erotic romance, but there are enough hot and sexy moments that I still think fans of those genres will enjoy this. Daniel Gardner finally has everything

Book Extract: Knightly Desire

“You’re awake,” a female voice said and Brant jumped. He turned his head toward the sound and found a young woman roughly twenty years his junior sitting on a stool on the opposite side of the room. His armor, sword and shield sat on a table beside her. “The Mother feared you would never rise.”

Books: All You Can Eat

All You Can Eat is my first Emma Holly novel – and I’m hooked! Right from the very beginning, this book grips you and doesn’t let go, not even when you’ve finished it. Frankie Smith is having a bad time – her boyfriend has just dumped her and she found a dead body behind her cafe.

Books: An Executive Decision

Grace Marshall is the hot romance writing alter ego of erotic romance writer K D Grace. However, this book is so hot that I’m still reviewing it here. An Executive Decision is the first book in the Executive Decisions trilogy from Xcite Books. It introduces us to high powered, successful CEO Ellison Thorne, one of a triad that

Book Extract: Smut for Chocoholics

Hilary left the pub feeling downcast. It was the second time she’d been in that week—dressed to the nines—and still he’d barely noticed her. Aside from cleaning her table when all the waiting-on staff were busy, and saying “Thanks! Good night” as she left, he’d paid her little attention. It was clear that her tight

Book Extract: Smut Alfresco

Violet slammed down the lid of her laptop with far more force than was necessary. She flinched, thinking perhaps she might have cracked the screen or broken one of the machine’s internal components. Then she shrugged, realising she didn’t care if she had. It was her work’s computer, after all, not hers. If it was

Books: Eighty Days Red

When I first heard about this series, I believed it would be a trilogy, so I was a tad confused when this was changed. However, I now get it. This is still a trilogy, of sorts, with Eighty Days Red being the last in a certain storyline. The next books go on to deal with different characters,

Book Extract: Loose Ends

When Kat had called to tell me about the five-year University reunion, my reaction had been, “So?” “Whaddya mean, so? You have to come! It’ll be a laugh. We’ll be able to find out how everyone’s getting on, what they’ve done with their lives and stuff.” “Why do you want to know how everyone’s getting

Book Extract: The Perfect Dom

“Spank me. Is that an invitation?” Shit. Mia had completely forgotten about him. Her flatmate, Katy, had asked if it was okay if her brother could stay on their sofa for a couple of nights. His own place was being fitted with a new bathroom and conditions over there weren’t exactly tantamount to hygiene. Mia had

Books: Calling Back Love

I grabbed this book because the premise sounded intriguing. Kirsten’s fiancé, Shawn, is a soldier currently posted in Afghanistan. When he’s reported missing and presumed dead, Kirsten can’t cope with it – she doesn’t want to be without him. Therefore she turns to witchcraft to bring him back. Unfortunately, she can’t recall him from the dead,

Books: In The Flesh

In The Flesh is book five of The Ladies’ Sewing Circle series, but it doesn’t matter if you haven’t read any of the others (though I recommend that you do), as this book will still make perfect sense. It tells the story of Beatrice Weatherly, who has been named a scarlet woman because she was tricked

Books: A Thug’s Love

I’ve read a few of BL Bonita’s books now and have always enjoyed them. A Thug’s Love is no exception. It tells the story of Chase Carter, an enforcer for one of the biggest crime syndicates in Toronto. He’s carrying out one of his jobs when he interrupts a near rape. What makes this even worse is that

Books: Awakening

Awakening by Elene Sallinger is another title that’s been compared to Fifty Shades of Grey because of the BDSM element in the book. However, the huge difference is that the female character in this book is actually a submissive – or wants to be, anyway. At the beginning of the book we meet Claire, a woman

Books: Bollywood Nightmare

I very much enjoyed the first book in this series, Silver Screen Dream, so I eagerly waited for the release of this one – Bollywood Nightmare. Johnny the Djinn was one of the main characters in the first book, and he is in this one, too. He’s a cheeky, often sarcastic narrator who desperately wants to be

Book Extract: Addicted

His apartment isn’t really an apartment at all. It’s more like a converted floor of a warehouse that didn’t actually get converted. The floors are that grey, untreated wood that you often see in seventeenth-century sweatshops, and he hasn’t bothered to make things like ‘rooms’. There’s a badly hung curtain between his bedroom and his

Book Extract: Kinky Boots

Jill returned to her flat feeling pretty chuffed with the events of the evening. Nice place, Kinky Boots. Really nice. And the bloke who ran it – hotter than hot. There was something else about him, something strangely familiar, almost like if they sat down together over a cuppa they’d discover that they’d always known

Books: Meeting Her Match

I’m a huge fan of Justine Elyot’s work, which is why it’s crazy it’s taken me so long to get around to reading this book. Having read it, I recommend that nobody else should delay – it’s a fantastic read. It tells the story of Cherry, a woman whose submissive side refuses to stay hidden

Book Extract: The Military Wife

Tess grumbled to herself as she heaved the shopping bags out of the boot of her car. It was a pain in the arse having to do this all by herself. Yet she’d been through this more than once, and it was going to be for the foreseeable future. May as well just get on

Books: Riding High

Riding High is an erotic romance novel from Zara Stoneley. It tells the story of Roisin Grant, a recently widowed woman who’s finding out more about her husband than she ever wanted to know. For example, he has a stash of home movies with him as the star, and worse yet, he’s left her bankrupt. Deep

Books: The Sweetest Revenge (Pride)

As soon as she heard the roar of the engine, Abigail’s heart rate increased. She could recognise it at quite some distance now, and as it drew closer to her office building, she could feel the vibrations beneath her feet. Grabbing a handful of documents from the pile on her desk, Abigail headed over to

Books: Meant To Be

Meant To Be is an erotic romance with an emphasis on the romance. There are sex scenes, but they’re not overly graphic, but this is the perfect tone for the book, which is beautiful and happy-sigh-inducing throughout. This is the tale of two couples who are neighbours. NYU professor Daniel Gardner has recently moved to the suburbs with

Books: Proving Santa Exists

Mancunian Rubenesque lady Jenny is the friendly type, so when there’s a new guy in her office, she goes out of her way to talk to him and make him welcome. A friendship quickly develops between the two of them, and when Jenny finds out what a crappy childhood Jonathan had – particularly at Christmas
