Book Reviews BOOK REVIEWS Book Reviews


As promised here are some more book reviews and recommendations for reading matter

The HitcherThe Hitcher by Charming Man
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Loved reading this book, as it took me back in time to when people still hitchhiked, sticking their thumb's out for a passing car, with no qualms about doing so.

Memorable hits from the late seventies thread through the story, adding authenticity to this sensual tale.

This story evolves around the two main protagonists,mainly Steve, who is on his way to open up his family seaside cottage ready for the summer rentals. The other main character is Faye, a hitchhiker Steve acquires on his journey. The story tell of how their friendship evolves with them eventually becoming lovers. With an unexpected ending leaving an opening for further stories.

Beautifully written sensual story of a bygone era. Excellent and a well deserved 5*'s. I look forward to reading more of Charming Man's work

Sting Of PleasureSting Of Pleasure by Mallory West
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The main protagonist in this book is a young dancer called Lucinda Valentine, and this is the story of how she is introduced to a lifestyle of dark BDSM.

Lucinda is befriended by a fellow dancer Claire and the story follows their journey on a tour around the world. Not just a dance journey, but a journey that takes Lucy into the darkest depths of BDSM. Lucinda meets with a sexual dominant and sadist Stephen Foxworthy, introduced by Claire who already knows the depths Stephen can make a submissive person sink to.

This novel is dark and threatening which reminded me of the Marquis de Sarde, and also is reminiscent of The Story of O. I found this a book that was hard to put down, and am anticipating reading more by this author

The Odor of VioletThe Odor of Violet by Ju Ephraime
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This romance is steamy and evocative and will have you flying between extreme emotions

The main protagonists are Damien who is blind, and Lisa a nurse who has applied to fill a position as his personal assistant. The problem being that Damien does not believe a woman could fulfil this role, that is until he meets Lisa and smells the scent of violets - his Achilles heel.

With twists and turn aplenty Ju Ephraine keeps you glued to the page with this utterly compulsive read

A well deserved 5 stars.

The Heiress of Santorini (The Greek Isles Series, #3)The Heiress of Santorini by Angel Sefer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a heartfelt and thrilling romance mystery that takes us on a journey via spills and thrills from America to the beautiful Isle of Santorini in Greece. There is romance and steamy scenes that take us on this journey with twists and turns involving our two main protagonists.

This book is well paced and I found myself hard pressed to put it down, with well developed and intriguing characters, this book just draws you in

A well deserved 5* for this book by Angel Sefer

The Inquiry (DykeLove Quickies #3)The Inquiry by Jacintha Topaz
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the first writing that I have read by this author, and be assured it won't be the last.

Taylor has just transferred from junior College to University, but is already tiring of the hour long trek she has to make each day to and fro, and her patience is frayed. Just as she is about to give up looking for somewhere near campus to stay, she finds an advert that sounds bang on.

This is a fresh and outstanding piece of writing that nails you right from the get go. A stand alone story, yet part of a series involving a group of feisty females that have no qualms about their sexuality, and their experimentation with bondage to that end.Plenty of steamy scenes.

Sexy, and steamy, and well worth a read.

I look forward to reading more of Jacintha Topaz's novels very soon

The Case Of The Tattooed Buttocks: An Inspector Cullot MysteryThe Case Of The Tattooed Buttocks: An Inspector Cullot Mystery by Alan Hardy
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

After seeing so many fabulous reviews for this book, and also falling in love with the title, I had to download and read this.

Oh what a brilliant read. This book had me in stitches with the innuendo, and one liners that I love so much.His total comic disrespect for the Police was fabulous. Especially the quest to find a missing tattoo from buttocks.

Not only with witty repartee, but with a storyline that holds so many twists and turns it leaves you dizzy, and holding your breath in anticipation, waiting for the other shoe to drop. This alongside of the in-depth, larger than life character, and a healthy dose of witty banter.It reminded me of Death on the Nile. What a fantastic read and I will be seeking out more from Mr Hardy.

His Marriage DemandHis Marriage Demand by Fiona Murphy
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I am a HUGE lover of alpha males, so this book was recommended to me by some friends and I downloaded it in a heartbeat.

A steamy romantic read about a hot blooded alpha male, Drake Hawthorne demanding that the focus of his attention submit and marry him. Taking no prisoners he sets out to get what his heart desires regardless of the bogus ring Ria is wearing. The ring is to deter suitors as Ria is providing support for her young brother Justin, who is very gifted academically.

Will love win out? No spoilers from me, you will have to read this yourself to find that out.

A well deserved 5*

More posts very soon
