In 1882, Eliza Walker earned money the only way she could, servicing the men of Johnson County, Wyoming…until Ben Dalton spent a night in her bed and made promises of a future. But he's been gone three long months and her fear of abandonment weighs heavy on her heart. This time when he returns, she'll seduce him with her feminine wiles to get him to stay?

I enjoyed this short story. Eliza's love for her man was sweet and while I wasn't quite sure what to think of Ben's actions initially, the author did a nice job of making me want the two of them to live happily-ever-after. And I'd really like to know what happens with Eliza's sister and Ben's friend!

Eve Templin has the reputation of ‘Ice Queen’ in the courtroom, but in the bedroom she craves the thrill of sexual submission. Past betrayals left her wary of emotional involvement with a Dominant, but she can't ignore the connection she feels with one in particular, incubus Alonso D’Agostino.

Alonso is everything Eve craves in a Dominant: intelligent, exotic and insatiable. He’s also one of her firm's biggest clients and a notorious playboy. So when he offers her more than a fling, she isn't sure she can trust him. Before the night ends, will she risk it all for love?

This short story started out hot and never stopped. Eve is just the right amount of professional savvy yet slightly insecure. Alonso is just plain hot. Combine his sexuality with some very interesting energy and you've got spontaneous combustion. When a misunderstanding drives a wedge between them, they both realize what they feel for each other is much deeper than lust and affection. My only complaint with Temptation Eve? It was too short - I'd like to get to know Eve and Alonso even better!

When ER nurse Kelly Donovan meets sexy firefighter Nick Barrantes at her sister’s annual summer party, the sparks fly. Famous for its games, this year’s party includes Hide & Seek and Kelly is determined to find a cozy place to hide with Nick. Trapped in a closet together during the game, neither Kelly nor Nick anticipates the sizzling passion that flares between them. However, Kelly can't help but wonder if this is one game she'll lose to her heart...

I really wanted to like this story before I jumped into it--the blurb and excerpt left me intrigued. I quickly found that I absolutely loved it! Valerie did a great job of giving the characters personality, and I quickly became enamoured with Kelly, our heroine. She was funny and likeable. And the hero, Nick, left me drooling (and I'm a little jealous of Kelly--okay a lot jealous.) He played his role as a hot stud muffin alpha male perfectly. The two play together quite nicely and it was fun to be there to watch.

The storyline was believable and I didn't stop until I'd read the last page. A must read for those looking for some hot quick consumated chemistry.

Review:
When Tabitha’s brother introduces her to Julian the chemistry is instant. Her sexual preference for dogging emerges and threatens to separate them before they get a chance to pursue a relationship. Hurt in previous relationships, the open forum of dogging draws Tabitha with its anonymity. Public sex and sharing aren’t things Julian is comfortable with but for Tabitha he might be willing to try.

When I read short erotica I expect sex in large, kinky quantities. Ms. Williamson did not disappoint. Graphic and exciting, each sexual situation was hotter than the last. Unfortunately there were some distracting formatting and editing errors that took me out of a few scenes. Between the sexual encounters, the physical fight scenes were great and I would like to see where Julian and Tabitha go in the future. I gave it 3 1/2 whips. It’s sexy and naughty but the errors were rough ones and took it down half a whip.

When Nora’s rancher husband dies, all she cares about is taking care of the ranch and their son,

Dylan. Hired hand Cole Shanahan is indispensable and does a great job running the ranch for her.
But she wishes he’d take care of her, too. When his twin brother, Jesse, shows up, he sees her
needs and desires and moves in like lightening. When Cole finds them together, Nora lets him
know she wants to be with both of them, which he finds arousing. But he’ll only allow it once
and then Jesse needs to move along.
 
This story was incredibly hot! I thought Jesse was funny and bold, while Cole was so sweet to

Nora as well as highly sexual. I wasn’t so sure Nora could jump into a ménage situation so readily
but the author does a great job of convincing me. I will definitely look for more to read from

Review: The last person Eden Foster expected to find at her friend Ava’s birthday party was bad-boy rocker Shane Tolan. And the last thing she would have expected from that bad-boy was an interest in her!
Eden was the ultimate business woman and had been dreaming of a way to meet Shane and make a deal to design his next cd cover. But Shane has a secret to share with Eden, one that will rock her world!

This was a fun story, not too long, not too short. Yet full to the brim with exciting bedroom action. From the moment Shane begins to chase Eden, he has no intention of letting her get away. But will Eden let her career come between her and the man of her dreams? For such a short story there is a lot of character development, and both the hero and heroine are very likeable folks. But most important....the sex is hot, beyond hot, and the affection between the characters just adds to the chemistry. This is a fun book if you like a lot of love scenes, with a nice plot to tie it all together.

Ian James was raised in the lap of luxury, but he was also raised knowing that
nothing worth having comes without working for it. Expected to follow in his
father’s footsteps and take over the law firm one day, Ian works as an errand boy
during the summer months between high school and college. One of those
errands sends him to a very young, very wealthy, and very sexy widow who has
plans of her own for Ian. When Ian discovers that older, wealthy women will pay
him for sex, becoming a lawyer is no longer in his future.
Gillian Carmichael needs a vacation, so when her best friend, Sylvia suggests she accompany her back home to Chicago, Gillian accepts. But when Gillian meets Sylvia’s brother, Ian, the attraction is instant. There’s just one little thing standing in the way . . . .

This story started with a bang (quite literally) and ended with a hopefully-ever-after. At least I hoped so! I loved Ian’s mental detachment from his job as a professional escort while also being a devoted family man. The kindness he shows his mother and sister were, for me at least, proof that he was a good guy regardless of his chosen profession and while he seemed somewhat callous about sex-for-hire, the author balanced it well with his personality and demeanor off the clock. Gillian was a nice match for him and though I didn’t get as much a sense of who she was, I liked her and wanted the relationship between her and Ian to progress. The final twist toward the end of the story actually made me laugh out loud. The sex was hotter than hot, too. This story is a definite read for anyone who loves to watch a nice love story grow.

When the older man starts frequenting the restaurant where Adam works, he

doesn’t know what to think. Kent is everything that defines success and wealth.

What could he possibly want with a college kid like Adam? Kent is going through a bad divorce, but he knows what he wants and who he wants. He makes his move, but following a brief yet intense lovemaking session, Adam’s insecurities make him walk away. Kent, refusing to let Adam go, decides to find a way to make the younger man see his worth and their need to be together.

This was a fast, erotic read. Adam might have had some insecurities but I loved his sassy, somewhat abrasive manner – the perfect foil for the controlling Kent. With the hint of a slave/submissive relationship in the future, the only bad thing about this story is that it ended too soon! A very enjoyable story!

Nineteen years old, disowned, and stripped of family funds, Chaz Miller is just trying to survive. It's a good thing he's got skills—his cocksucking will come in a handy when he lands a noteworthy and steady john. But after being busted, Chaz finds an unexpected benefactor in Vice Detective Chris Conley, who gets him into a prostitute rehabilitation program. Now Chaz needs to redeem himself... so he can find a permanent place in Chris's arms.

Gritty and unforgiving, this story had me sympathetic of Chaz from the get-go. Doing what he could to survive, he was still either young enough or unjaded enough to want more than just a quick encounter in a bathroom stall. And when he found what he was looking for, the betrayal he felt when he gets busted is heartwrenching. Author Bryl Tyne is a wonderful writer, technically as well as emotionally. Every emotion Chaz can go through is explored. I loved the twists and turns from many angles. If you enjoy homo-erotic stories, don’t pass this one by…it’s a treat!

Although being her only love and lover is what he would prefer, he knows itisn't possible with Tabitha's sex drive so he embarks on the journey of findinga third for their relationship.

This story is one surprise after another. I loved it. First off, it's in first person, from Dominic's point of view. That provided a whole different perspective on the lifestyle. Double Jeopardy is very short but I was sucked in from the very beginning and when the last pages came I had another shock, butI'll leave that one for the next reader to find(It was a doosie). I give the story 4 ½ whips and would recommend it to anyone looking for a super short storywith a twist.

Review:

France, 1916. During WWI, high above the trenches, British and German aces fought for control of the skies. Strain and tension of war coupled with keeping one's love discreet leads to risky choices. When British ace Bat Bryant is threatened with exposure, he panics, killing the man intent on blackmail. To make matter worse, there's a witness—American pilot Cowboy Cooper. Cowboy, it seems, has his own ideas of rough justice.

Though not a huge history buff nor fan, I couldn't resist picking up Josh Lanyon's novella, Out of the Blue. And I'm extremely happy I did. Of all the Lanyon books I've read to date, I would have to say, Out of the Blue is some of Lanyon's best writing yet—Witty, charming, amazingly sensual, and funny—Well, that describes all Lanyon books, but there was something different about this one. I noticed the style is different compared to his other books, but if anything, his choice aids in the action, making the action concise—faster—better. Lanyon hits all the right buttons with his story of lost love and new beginnings set in France during WWI. British ace Bat Bryant and American pilot Cowboy Cooper seem an unlikely pair, yet Lanyon fashions the perfect scenario, feeding into a confrontation that plays out well. Against the odds and despite their wills, Bat and Cowboy work—and they work each other over pretty darn well throughout this story—did I forget to mention this story is hot? And Lanyon writes in these two men's emotions so perfectly, the story is utterly romantic on top of erotic. I give Out of the Blue the ultimate 5 whips, because I have read the story three times in the past week and have laughed aloud and gotten hot and bothered all over again with each reading. It is that good, truly. Readers of historical military and/or M/M erotic romance will absolutely want this one!

Blurb: Desperate for her husband’s attention—particularly in the bedroom—Bree Winters purposely drops her wedding band down the sink in hopes of luring Shane upstairs for the seduction of his life. Only the Superbowl is on, which proves to be a bigger draw than her charms. Frustrated, she half-heartedly threatens to call their handsome neighbor—who happens to be a plumber—and reward him with sexual favors in exchange for retrieving her ring.

Shane knows his and Bree’s sex life has become boring and predictable, and it scares the hell out of him—especially since they’ve only been married a couple of years. But he’s overworked and tired as hell, and all he wants to do is watch the Superbowl. When Bree threatens to entice the neighbor over with promises of sexual favors, Shane discovers the thought of watching his wife with another man is a surprising turn-on. And maybe just what they need to jump start their stalled sex life. The big game suddenly holds no interest because in the master bath, it's GAME ON.

Review: This story will not only curl your toes. It will have your heart a thumping. If your significant other is not at home, you will be wanting them to walk through that door immediately.

It’s said that timing is everything, but does that hold true in the bedroom, too? Tom and Lisa are compatible in every way—or so Tom thinks. They love each other, have a great apartment and share so many mutual interests. Most people would think the couple has it all. And they do—almost. The truth is that Lisa hasn’t been feeling nearly as sexually satisfied as Tom thinks she has. He just doesn’t rock her world—in that way. When a handsome co-worker invites Lisa to his posh beach house for the weekend, she dutifully fills him in on Tom and her unavailable status. But John is gracious enough to extend the offer to include Tom in the weekend getaway, and Lisa accepts his invitation. After all, why shouldn’t they have some fun? Maybe a weekend of sun, sand and sex is just what the couple needs to get their urges in sync. At least, that’s what Lisa and Tom are hoping. And John? What’s making him grin is still a mystery, but one he’s willing to share—for a price.

I loved this story and for only being forty pages or so, it packed a lot of sex, emotion and realism. Lisa’s love for Tom and her frustrations in the bedroom, combined with Tom’s adoration and willingness to do whatever it takes to keep her happy were very satisfying. When her forward co-worker John hit on her, I was afraid Lisa would ruin everything for a tumble with him. Fortunately, she and Tom forged a friendship with John that ended up strengthening their own – in and out of the bedroom. A great read!

After a night of amazing sex, he stops calling her, thinking he’s doing her a favor by not having any more contact with her. Instead, Callie thinks she disappointed him in bed and in typical librarian fashion, buys books and searches the internet to find out how to become the vixen she thinks he wants in a woman. Instead, she finds that while he enjoys the new and improved bedroom Callie, he never stopped thinking or wanting the original Callie Anderson.

Review:

Vacationing at a Montego Bay nude resort, Lisa Brooks finds herself volunteering in a bondage demonstration on the beach. She’d like to continue the instructions with the Jamaican native, but the gorgeous resort employee has other duties to perform. Though disappointed, Lisa accompanies a friend to an erotic casino night where the chips are free and redeemable for sex. A night for a mysterious encounter? If only she could buy the island hottie she really wants.

Talk about a spicy read. This book will have you panting from beginning to end. The chemistry between the characters is mind-blowing and enticing. I loved the plot of this story, a night of gambling for sex with a stranger, something about that just really captivates the reader and has you reading the book from the beginning to the end to find out what is going to go on with this unique plot. Ms. Hardt did an exceptional job taking this one-of-a-kind storyline and making it timeless and unforgettable. I’ll definitely be recommending this book to my family and friends.

Review:

Follow the ghost hunting crew of TV’s Haunt and Seek, through the night as they investigate an English country manor and its infamous lover’s curse.

Show host, Valerie Eccelston, and historian, Dr. Ryan Hawkins, are mutually attracted, but their time to explore romantic possibilities is hindered as the resident ghosts keep the team busy. One ghost seeks redemption for killing his family, a lonely one waits for love, and the other three form a deadly triangle involving love, jealousy, and revenge. Val, Ryan, and the rest of the ghost hunting crew strive to help the spirits find their way back to love but first the mortals must wage a paranormal war against evil. Along the way, the hunters seek their own path to love.

This was a really interesting read. The chemistry between the hero and heroine was mind blowing. It’s a short read full of emotion, lust, and amazing sexual tension. Ms. Pilz has given us a great read, it’s one that has you questioning what is going to happen next? And then when something happens it’s off the radar, you don’t expect it. And I love that when it comes to a romance novel. This author is new to me and I will be checking out her backlist and looking forward to her future releases.

Review:

Megan's character was one who took pride in the food that she prepared. When she runs out of Rosemary, she finds the closest place to find the best is the Witch's house. When she is caught stealing some by the Witch's henchman Brock, she finds herself working off what she had stolen. She finds herself taken by Brock and wants to please him with her dishes. Can true love be found?

The Rosemary Thief is a book that I found to be very well written with the reader's comfort in mind. It is a very quick and intriguing read with such a sweetness to it that I couldn't help but recall the story days later. With such excellent imagery, I actually felt like I was there. This story had me laughing out loud at certain parts and I really loved Brock's character. The ending was perfect! I have never read any work by Ms. Law but based on The Rosemary Thief, I will go out of my way to read more of her work. If you have limited time to read and want a feel good feeling out of a book, I highly recommend The Rosemary Thief by Fiona Law. It's fun, it's sweet and it's a charming little read.

Forbidden Island by Samantha Gentry


Title: Forbidden Island
Author: Samantha Gentry
Publisher: Wild Rose Press
Published date: July 2009
Genre/Theme: Contemporary Romance
Length: 49 pages

Where Murphy Abbott is concerned, Chantal Stevens can't stop asking herself...what if? Chantal met the incredibly sexy industrialist when he gave the commencement speech at her college graduation. He was polite and charming, yet the promise of ecstasy in his eyes mesmerized her. The moment he shook her hand, she knew she wanted to know him...in every way possible.Now, ten years later, Chantal misrepresents herself to finagle an invitation to his isolated and very private Carribean island in order to seduce him and finally discover the answer. One thing she failed to consider...Murphy might have a hidden agenda of his own.

This was reviewed earlier by one of Mistress Bella’s reviewers…and she didn’t seem much more excited about this story than I did. It’s very hot and sexual, but seriously, I felt it was also full of gratuitous sex. Yes, the two main characters had thought about each other over the years, but to fall in bed within minutes of seeing each other? A bit over the top…and then to have it smack of “I love you, man”…it just didn’t ring quite true. This author is wonderful, I’ve read her other stories (wow, check out Summer Sizzle from Cobblestone!)and I’ve been totally drawn in, but this one…not so much. If you want lots of very hot, sensual, sexual scenes, this will totally fulfill your wishes. Otherwise, check out the author’s other stories…

Four years of foreplay is enough...
Avril Blanco experiences several positions with a sexy, driven executive in the advertising firm of William Carver. The complication... Monday morning the determined and powerful man will be her boss.
Ian Carver is taking over as CEO for his ailing father. His first executive decision—renegotiate Avril’s job description. He’s looking for a partner, in and out of bed.
But will she risk the reputation of sleeping her way to the top?

This was a thoroughly enjoyable quick read, I loved the flirty, teasing dialogue and foreplay between Avril and Ian. The sex was hot and set nicely with a Chicago snowfall as a backdrop, which I found really appealing since I used to live near there. Ian was a very likeable guy as well as being a hottie and Avril had the right amount of ambition and drive that didn’t come across as ultra feminist and was sexy, as well. All in all, I don’t think any reader will be disappointed with Executive Positions.

Taking Advantage by Larry Hammersley


Title: Taking Advantage
Author: Larry Hammersley
Publisher: Wild Rose Press
Published date: 2009
Genre/Theme: Vintage Rose
Length: 39 pages


Zack Thompson has been crazy about Gloria Garner ever since she came to Sheffield High in their freshman year. She's been elected basketball queen four years running and only dates the three top athletes. How can Zack compete for Gloria's hand when he's no good at sports and lacking in the looks department? And as if that weren't enough, Gloria has a super strict mother who has to approve her daughter's every date. Does Zack's excellence in academics and his gentlemanly conduct count for anything?
I’ve never read a Vintage Rose story before and I have to say, I loved Taking Advantage! The story was very sweet and even though I was born long after the era this story is set in, it made me nostalgic for the innocence of my own childhood, when things really were simpler. Add to that fact, the non-jock gets the popular girl, just because he’s a nice guy and she sees that in him, makes the story all the sweeter. A must read if you like to take a little trip back in time!

Genre/Theme: Paranormal Menage BDSM
Length: 51 pages

Chad LaLanne, a mortal Master who can't provide his newly made vampire slave's only sustenance. Philippe d'Argent, a lonely vampire submissive who needs another loving Master to make him whole. Katie, newly made vampire who needs her mortal Master…but also a vampire male to protect and sustain her.
With the vibrant and mysterious bayous of Cajun Country as the backdrop, the three begin an intense ménage—a time of testing, of exploration, leading to the breaking of the physical taboos of one and the emotional surrender of another. And ultimately, learning to trust another, when those they hold most dear are at risk. Theirs is a relationship born of need, sustained by love…and bonded into an eternal triangle when the Master joins his lovers in their shadow world, where all manner of relationships can thrive without prejudice or shame.
I enjoyed this book, it was highly erotic, well-written but with just enough romantic elements that I crave to make a story succeed for me. I especially enjoyed the character building of the males, Chad and Philippe, their emotions and personalities were both believable and sensual. Chad had issues that his mortality would forever chain him to and Philippe came into the story damaged but willing to start a new life as both a submissive to Chad and companion/protector to Katie. My only regret was that Chad’s transition from mortality to vampirism was glossed over. For me, it’s all about the details. I know this book is part of a series so perhaps the author went into greater detail about this transitioning elsewhere. Regardless, this was a emotional, sensual read and didn’t disappoint.

Twenty-five year old social butterfly, Levi Finley couldn't be more
mismatched for his middle-aged, introverted counterpart, biomedical tech, Rob Langston. What happens when two so utterly opposite men come together? Besides the hottest sex in Levi's young life? Throw in one opinionated mother, misunderstanding friends, and one hell of a birthday party at the wildest, gentleman's gentlemen club in town, and friction, a notch above wild, is bound to ensue. Will Levi allow doubts to destroy their relationship? Not if Rob has any say in the matter. But that might not be as easy as it sounds, considering Rob's preferred communication is always best unspoken.

This packed a lot of erotica in a short story! Due to Rob’s non-communicative nature, he and Levi’s relationship appears complicated and weird to Levi’s friends but Levi knows Rob unlike anyone else. The author does a great job of portraying Rob as the strong, silent lover but once behind closed doors, he becomes a sensitive partner for Levi. While Levi did allow his friend’s doubts to color his view of Rob during an especially inebriated birthday celebration, Rob’s love for him brought him back around, showing him that Levi’s friends didn’t have a clue about who the real Rob was. A very nice read!

Review:

Ever since Devin came into Jocelyn’s life he changed her into the person that he wanted her to be. Than he left her and she retreated into herself even more. Once a fun loving and ever daring woman now she has turned into a quiet demure girl. Far from the person she once was.

Tired of seeing Jocelyn suffer. Her best friend Beth decides to take things into her own hands and invites Jocelyn to a surprise party. Beth finally gets Jocelyn to agree to go with her to the party. The party turns out to be a surprise all right. The two women drive out to a mansion and once inside Jocelyn is awed at what she sees. Numerous men and woman in all states of undress and in the midst of many different actions. All the woman are wearing just thongs and stilettos and everyone is wearing masks. As it turns out the party is a BDSM party.

Even though she is apprehensive at first. Jocelyn begins to remember herself in the years past and she decides to give it a try. Finally she lets herself go and enjoys just feeling. Jocelyn begins to find her backbone again. She is starting to regain back just what Devin has taken away from her. Jocelyn had somehow lost herself and is now on the way back to finding her spirit once again.

I enjoyed seeing Jocelyn come back to life and find herself again. Having a good friend like Beth by her side while she did it was nice to see as well.
This story is a quick read with a good flow. Lisette Kristensen keeps the reader interested from the start to the finish. It is definitely a page-turner with very strong characters. I would love to see more adventures of these two friends and many of the people at the party with them.

Review:

Throw together Connor who has been cursed to live in a mirror by a sea witch and Torri who has just broken up with her boyfriend and is heartbroken. Than we can watch the magic happen.
Tori has recently bought the mirror in which he resides in and soon Connor realizes that he has feelings for Tori and must somehow reach out to her.
Finally one night Tori actually hears Connor speaking to her. Once she realizes he is in the mirror the fun begins. He than is given one month to get her to love him with her whole heart or he must return to the mirror for all eternity.
From a horrible blind date to a confrontation with a sea witch this story has love and magic for all to enjoy.


It was nice to see the development of each of the two characters. Will Connor learn his lesson and come to his understanding about love and what it really means to have it and give it freely. Can Tori grow as well? Will she realize what it means to love and be loved?
Even being heartbroken over her ex-boyfriend Tori is still a feisty and brave woman and Connor is a great man. The author endears Connor to the reader and has you cheering him on in his battle to win Tori.
The Man In The Mirror by Jo Barrett is a sweet story about finding and keeping true love. It is a quick read that warms your heart. I truly enjoyed the flow of this book it never seemed rushed along at all. I defiantly will be looking for more from this author.
My only problem with this story was that it was over so soon. I fell into their world and enjoyed myself so much that I hated to see it end.

Helping her best friend Quinton fix up his new house has Brit wanting to help herself to something more. At college, she laid down the ground rules between her and Q: no more than friends. Now, eight years later, Brit is ready to test the theory "best friends make the best lovers." But Q has some ground rules of his own.


This story started out hot and kept getting hotter and for a quick read, this totally satisfied me. I especially liked seeing so much of the emotion from the male perspective and the author did a great job of keeping Q’s feelings believable. I definitely recommend not only this story but keeping an eye out for future stories by Chelle Hicks!

A poor body image and public play at the Dungeon don't mix so what's a submissive to do?
Sylvie and Carl used to be prominent play partners at the dungeon. Fast forward to three kids later and Sylvie is ashamed of her once perfect body. Carl understands that restoring her self confidence is his responsibility but he's not sure how to do it. When her body issues affect their marriage he knows that it's time for drastic action. An upcoming birthday provides him not only with the perfect time but the perfect solution to their problems as well...
Carl’s Story is a great read about love and trust. It is also a story about struggling with self-esteem and the needing of reassurances. After having two children and ageing Carl’s wife Sylvie no longer feels beautiful. Carl disagrees and still thinks she is as sexy as ever and vows to prove it to her. Kissa Starling has written a wonderful story letting the reader get a glimpse into the world of BDSM.
Sylvie still loves to play in private but is not willing to play in public anymore. She has lost her self-esteem thinking that she is no longer sexy or beautiful. For her birthday Carl would like to celebrate and return to the club that they used to frequently play at before. Sylvie reluctantly agrees to go with him to the club.
Carl calls up a dominatrix who does most if not all her scenes at the club in lingerie and asks her to join them at the club. So that Sylvie will be able to be clothed and is able to go and try again to do a scene in public. Sylvie still enjoys the lifestyle and hungers for the club, she wishes to participate in it all again but is having a problem getting over the idea of herself as not being beautiful anymore. Can Carl help Sylvie realize she is still beautiful and sexy? Will Sylvie ever be able to enjoy herself again?
Readers should be aware if they do not realize that this story is an explicit read. A quick glance into the world of BDSM but also a look into the depth of a consentual relationship and the love two people have for one another. Every woman should be made to feel sexy and beautiful no matter what. It is not just the waifs of today’s expected beauty that are sexy. Beauty comes in many sizes and shapes.
I truly enjoyed the message that I got from this book. Being a mother of two myself and not as svelte as I used to be it was nice to see a relationship portrayed with a man who loves his wife and still considered her to be sexy and beautiful no matter what. This book may be explicit but the message of love and acceptance shines through the pages.

When Amber Johnson agrees to fill in as a last-minute chef of a dinner party, she is surprised to learn the client is none other than her ex-boyfriend, Marc Denton. The kitchen sizzles with their unfinished business; will the flames of love reignite, or will Marc's scheming father succeed in keeping them apart? Marc and Amber are furious when they discover lies that have kept them apart for three years. With Amber by his side again, will Marc find the courage to stand up to his father and hold on to his true love?

What a great read! Amber and Marc had fantastic chemistry and I loved Marc’s willingness to take his father to task for past sins while protecting his true love. The sex was hot, the story was fun and I cheered the romance on from the beginning. Kenzie Michaels did a nice job of pulling me in and her writing is excellent. This reviewer’s opinion – buy this story for a very satisfying read!

Review:

Magician Cade Hammond is devastated by a trick gone wrong when he loses his one and only love in a tragic accident. When he can take no more, Cade decides to disappear and walks away from the spotlight. When he meets a stranger one year later, he is faced with a woman with secrets and a urge to return to the spotlight. The only thing he must ask himself is, is he ready for a life that will never be the same again?

I enjoyed reading Infinite Possibilities as it was a fast paced and interesting read. I was intrigued right from the beginning where Cade loses the love of his life. Ms. MacRae does a wonderful job of adding emotion to the story which is hard to find in many short stories. She writes in a way that is informative and attention capturing. I felt like Cade dealt with some very real emotions such as grief, denial and acceptance. I give this book a rating of 4 only because at times it seemed to move a bit fast but with a short, it's almost inevitable. I would have loved to see this book in a longer form so I could have gotten to know the characters better. I recommend this book to all who need their daily literary fix of an emotion filled read. This book covers a lot in a very short amount of time. Kudos to Ms. MacRae for telling such a wonderful story that grips the heart and leaves a smile.
