Books: Teamwork

Teamwork is book four in the Hot Ice series, and my favourite so far. It tells the story of Welsh nurse Fiona, who ends up treating hockey player Raven for injuries he got while playing. She knows nothing about the sport, but does know that Raven is possibly the surliest patient she’s ever had. The only saving grace

Book Extract: A French Affair

Sydney Tyler jumped so hard that her fingers slammed down onto the laptop’s keyboard and she typed a bunch of gobbledegook. Kashfkjsdhlfknsdlfvn sdlkch awoeduioh ahdwklc Gasping, she clutched at her chest as her heart thumped rapidly and painfully. “What the fucking hell was that?” she said to the empty room. Pushing her chair back from

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: 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

Erotica: Homecoming by the Gateway Boyfriend

God, I love fucking you. Being inside of you is like coming home. I love the way you grip me, slick and tight. I love the way your body feels beneath me. I know it completely–the curve of your hip, the pulse at your neck, the rhythm of your hips, the feel of your hands

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: 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

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: 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: The Prince

If you’ve read my reviews of The Siren and The Angel, you’ll know how eager I was to get my hands on this book. And just when I thought Tiffany Reisz’s books couldn’t get any better – she released The Prince. This is by far my favourite of the series so far – I’d give it six out of

Sex Science: Is Marriage Over? by Brooke Magnanti

When I got married almost three years ago, it was amidst a perfect storm of circumstances: living with someone I loved and facing down the prospect of having big changes in our lives at the same time. Like many women of my generation, I was not swept off my feet by a dark and handsome

Web: Quiverz

Online dating is all very well but there’s only so much that you can glean from knowing that someone likes curling up with a nice bottle of red wine and a DVD. When the onus is purely on a shared desire to find a relationship, it can be limiting. New service Quiverz teams business introductions

Sexually Cliterate: The Art of Striptease

Striptease has its roots way back in history, with origins as far back as 4BC, when the Sumerian Tablets were created, including depictions of the goddess Inanna who removed an item of clothing at each of the seven gates of the Underworld on her descent into hell. This myth was subsequently revisited in the Bible,

Book Extract: Lover Unexpected – Sappho Edition

Natalia smiled as she caught sight of the familiar redhead sitting in the hotel bar. Thankful for the thick carpet masking her footsteps, she walked towards her friend from the back, ensuring she wouldn’t be seen. Then, she slipped her hands over her eyes. “Guess who?” An excitable squeak, then, “Oh, I don’t know. Is

Spiritual Sex: Is Tantra Worth It?

Nowadays, it’s easy to perceive sex as being a purely physical thing. Seemingly every day, another sex memoir hits the shelves documenting someone’s casual sex experiences, another sex position guide hits the shelves telling people how to ‘do it’ in 103 different positions and another porn site pops up online, allowing people to share their
