Review: His Curvy Woman
Book Reviewed by Knotty Reviewer

Author: Sam Crescent
Publisher: Evernight Publishing
Genre: Erotic Romance, Contemporary Romance

Sam Crescent continues her Curvy Women Wanted series in this wonderful novella about tattoo artist Ace Heart and his shop assistant Trixie Dean. Sam Crescent is an awesome author who writes books about real women, with hips, tummies, and curves abound. As a curvy woman myself, it's refreshing to read stories about women who are more of the societal norm, size 12 or above.

Trixie has worked with Ace for the past 3 years. Before that, she had gone to business school, been top at her...

Review: A War Like Ours
Book Reviewed by Rachel's Willful Thoughts

Author: Saffron A. Kent
Publisher: The Wild Rose Press Inc (Scarlet Rose)
Genre: Erotic Romance, Contemporary Romance, New Adult

As an avid reader, it takes a lot to surprise me. Author Saffron Kent not only delivered an angsty story with A WAR LIKE OURS, but she grabbed me by the heartstrings and made me ugly cry.

While some readers might have difficulty if they aren't comfortable with a bit of LGBT material, I was blown away by the plot twist. Not only was it perfect for this storyline, but the author did a phenomenal job explaining the relationship between Madison and Julia. The very idea that Madison and James...

Review: First Fall

5 wildly original and engrossing stars for FIRST FALL!

After Eden fell, two tribes were formed from the carnage. The female Varekai are bloodthirsty and inventive, while the male Elikai are strong and resourceful. After an Elikai steals a Varekai canoe, he sets off a chain of events that will have long-lasting and serious repercussions in their world.

Wow wow wow. I don't want to give away too much, since this book is too good to not let you enjoy it fully, but FIRST FALL was...

Review: Screwed
Book Reviewed by Jackie

Author: Mike Owens
Publisher: The Wild Rose Press
Genre: Erotic Romance, Contemporary Romance

I thought I knew what I was getting into when I picked this book up, but SCREWED takes me in unexpected directions that is both realistic and surprising.

I like the author's take in this story, especially with the prostitution part. He tells the story matter-of-factly, showing us how such a thing would've started, if indeed one were as enterprising and desperate for funds as Sharon Saluda. Then came Connor Shaw, and the author takes this part of the story in a surprising direction. The last...

Review: Wild Lily
Book Reviewed by Gabrielle Sally

Author: Cerise DeLand
Publisher: Totally Bound Publishing
Genre: Erotic Romance, Historical Romance

A not so quick look through my Kindle library will show my deep love of period pieces. It's not always enough for me to immerse myself in a story. No, I want the costumes and language and mannerisms that can only come from delving into a historical novel and Cerise DeLand's WILD LILY does not disappoint. I knew I was in for a real treat with the opening scene.

Likes: The richness of language. I cannot say enough how important it is (to me) to immerse myself into a story. I want to be transported....

Review: Gorgon's Vengeance
Book Reviewed by Gabrielle Sally

Author: Ravenna Tate
Publisher: Evernight Publishing
Genre: Erotic Romance, Contemporary Romance, MC Romance

Ravenna Tate's GORGON'S VENGEANCE was a slightly different telling of an MC Romance story. At least for me.

Likes and loves: That the story opens with Chloe (Legs) and Gorgon already in a relationship. I know there's an assumption that genre-specific stories will follow a certain formula and for me, Ms. Tate stepped away from that by introducing us to the "already couple" and I loved it. I also really liked that Legs enjoys dancing in a strip club. So often, we read about how the female...

Review: Beta's Mark
Book Reviewed by Knotty Reviewer

Author: Sydney Lea; Bethany Shaw; Gracie Meadows; Nicole Morgan; Tamsin Baker; Khloe Wren; Laura Hawks; Krista Ames; Scarlett J Rose
Publisher: Romance Rebels Publishing
Genre: Erotic Romance, Paranormal Romance, Vamps & Shifters Romance

BETA'S MARK is a multi-author anthology filled with 9 different tales of betas, those sexy males who are second to the alpha, but no less weak. Nine authors have taken on the task of showing us just how strong, powerful, and sexy these betas are.

I picked up this anthology because I love shifter romance, and I also recognized some of the names listed. I also enjoyed reading new authors to see if I can find new favorites. In general, I enjoyed the entire book and thought the selection of...
