Book Review: Emma Mars’ Hotelles

Book Review: Emma Mars’ Hotelles

Emma Mars’ Hotelles is the first book of a French trilogy. I read the English translation and admit, I was really excited to read it because of the synopsis, but sadly it falls a bit short. For the most part, it’s a slow read. I mean s-l-o-w and you’ll want to skip pages or even skim to get ahead, alas nothing noteworthy really happens to capture one’s interest. While I enjoy mysteries, Hotelles isn’t exactly a traditional mystery, but rather the journey of a young woman who becomes sexually awakened. 1. I liked the idea of an escort meeting the man of her dreams. I wanted this to be a bit like Pretty Woman, but it’s not. Annabelle is a rather reluctant escort. She doesn’t want to be in the… Read more »

Book Review: Maya Cross’ Lockout

Book Review: Maya Cross’ Lockout

I wish Lockout was one of those novellas you could easily pick up and read from that particular moment, but alas it is not. If you haven’t read Locked then read it before proceeding to Lockout otherwise you’ll be lost. Maya Cross’ Lockout picks up right where Locked left off, with Sophia walking away from Sebastian after the text she sees he receives. When Sebastian wakes the next morning, he’s stunned to find her missing and attempts to make thing right. Sophia doesn’t want anything to do with him, but against her better judgment she relents. A majority of the novella takes place with Sebastian traveling, but he leaves her with a gift and specific instructions that she follows. Sebastian is training her to become his sub and she willingly… Read more »

Book Review: Tara Sue Me’s The Dominant

Book Review: Tara Sue Me’s The Dominant

If Tara Sue Me’s The Dominant sounds awfully familiar to Fifty shades of Grey, it’s because this is the fan fiction that EL James borrowed from as she wrote Fifty Shades (according to the research I did). To be truthful, as I read I did get undertones of Fifty especially with Nathaniel owning his own financial firm to outlining when Abby will eat and exercise. The Dominant is also the second book in The Submissive series. Narration is first person and told via Nathaniel’s point of view. I liked Nathaniel and it’s clear he’s a good guy. The financial market is down and he’s opted to forgo his own personal salary so his employees get paid. He’s helpful and even helps a child by donating his own bone marrow. Despite… Read more »

Guest Post: The Appeal Of The Virgin Heroine by Cynthia Sax + Giveaway

Guest Post: The Appeal Of The Virgin Heroine by Cynthia Sax + Giveaway

Today’s our stop on The Seen Trilogy blog tour! Today Cynthia is talking about virgin heroines and their appeal. I reviewed the trilogy separately, but here’s the direct link to all three reviews. I liked the series and hopefully you’ll be inclined to check series or at least weigh in regarding virgins. Also the giveaway is located at the bottom (good luck!). The Appeal Of The Virgin Heroine Anna, the heroine of He Watches Me, is a virgin. Virgin heroines are unusual in contemporary erotic romances but then, Anna is an unusual young woman. Due to her past, she doesn’t trust easily. She certainly doesn’t trust a man enough to let him inside her. She kisses with her mouth closed and her eyes open. She deliberately doesn’t put herself in… Read more »

Blog Tour: Review-Cynthia Sax’s He Claims Me

Blog Tour: Review-Cynthia Sax’s He Claims Me

Cynthia Sax’s He Claims Me is the final installment in The Seen Trilogy and while some questions remain unanswered, it’s a satisfying conclusion to this voyeuristic erotic trilogy. He Claims Me picks up right where He Touches Me left off. This time Anna is in trouble and in many ways, Sax was giving us a sign that something wasn’t right. In the first two novellas, we see a moth and Anna often compares herself to one; always floating and drifting. The morning following her first sexual experience with Gabriel she finds a moth hurt. At first I didn’t pay attention to it until everything Anna has worked for begins to fall apart. In He Touches Me, Michael eagerly assists Anna in trying to land an in-house meeting, but by accepting… Read more »

Blog Tour: Review-Cynthia Sax’s He Touches Me

Cynthia Sax’s He Touches Me picks up where He Watches Me left off and it’s the second novella in The Seen trilogy. In He Touches Me, we get to know Anna and Gabriel a little more. I failed to mention that narration in He Watches Me is first person via Anna and it continues throughout the series. I like Anna and her perspective. Anna comes to grip with the reality that she likes to be watched and I feel that a series in her narrative adds to the voyeurism aspect that she enjoys very much. Character development continues and it’s interesting to see both Anna and Gabriel establish a relationship. Their night time swimming ritual Anna established with Gabriel, still continues but this time there’s a bit of action on… Read more »

Knowing utilities can be expensive she doesn’t run the air conditioner and to complicate matters, the Leigh’s have given her a list of rooms she’s allowed to use.
