The book finishes with a selection of erotic comics by guest artists. Like good sex, it’s goofy fun that might just make the reader’s life better.
The story is innovative and interesting for the first half, but by the end it looks as if this series might be one to skip.
There was quite a bit of buzz about Perv on Twitter....So of course I bought it...There are not enough books where the hero is so worshipful of ladybits. This really should be a whole new trope.
Ms Moyle has not written academic art history; she is entertaining on Turner’s life and good on his times.
Little in the way of romance or plot, but readers who enjoy lots of raunchy sex with a confident and unapologetic female protagonist won't complain.
It’s like I spent the first half of the book wishing it would speed up and I would get to finally see them together, but then the second half of the book wishing it would slow down and spend more time focusing on them actually becoming a couple. Sigh.
...with Sandrine’s daughter’s story, set against the tragic yet exquisite canvases of Paris, the Great War, and the Russian Revolution, and offers fascinating historical tidbits in the midst of bright, imaginative storytelling and complex, supernatural worldbuilding. A compelling, heart-wrenching, creative, and intricate read.
Loving parents will frequently be protective to the point of being overprotective of their kids against the world even if they do not need much protection. I am deliberately speaking in generalities because I do not want to spoil the book for you. I really enjoyed the book and have already reread it twice, which to me signifies a memorable read.
Overall, I’m still interested to see the resolution of Eva and Gideon’s story, but I’m really hoping the next book has more action.
The red-hot sex scenes mostly show female/male couples but also include male/male and ménage encounters. Uniting them Kennedy's obvious affection for the characters of her world, a fondness that her readers will undoubtedly share.
" There are plenty of unique, steamy love scenes, and Eglington never allows the characters’ numerous bedroom encounters to become boring. Creative lovemaking along with the foreshadowing of intense relationship drama between some of the couple’s closest friends serves to keep the story moving."
There is a lot of sex in Risk Aware; personally I didn’t think it was all necessary and I was confused as to whether this was a genre romance with BDSM, or an erotic novel. For me it fell slightly unsatisfactorily, between the two Nevertheless, there is a lot to recommend in Risk Aware...
Never Let You Go is a story that deals with many difficult subjects, and Ms. Murphy handles them expertly. She shows the reader that love isn't always simple and clean; that sometimes, it's dark and complicated, but still worth pursuing.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well written women’s fiction. I would not recommend it for young adult readers due to the steaminess.
Thankfully, the anthology was fantastic. There were far more hits than misses in the seven short stories, including two stories I gave DIK As (one by Jeffe Kennedy and one by M. O’Keefe.) There’s a wide range of story types, from sex with a stranger to an f/f encounter, so not all stories may be to everyone’s taste.
...the hot stuff grows repetitive very quickly. And it begins to feel obligatory. Excitable as Judith is, she has a limited imagination, and she vents it at regularly timed intervals. By the time “Maestra” reaches its suspenseful conclusion — three little words, “to be continued” — she seems to be running out of positions.
In this sensual tale, words stoke the body and the imagination. With prose that is both witty and current, Dickey chronicles the pothole-filled journey four modern black women take to find love.
They didn’t experience any serious resistance to threaten their relationship and so rather than a bang, the series ended with a bit of a fizzle. (Except, it totally ended with a bang – just, the other sort.)
I love this book, and can't help but think that Jane Austen would have gone on writing if she had lived and her books would have been superb. In the meantime, I content myself re-reading the ones she did finish.
While the premise of this book has potential, the many levels of manipulation that the characters inflict on each other are genuinely troubling, and their scars, both physical and emotional, are not dealt with in a way that provides closure for them or readers.
