Short description:

Shy freshman Gina Wesley wants desperately to get into the greatest club her college has ever known. Standing in her way is the gorgeous Max Devlin.

But Max has an interesting ‘initiation’ method . . . involving metal clamps, a hard shaft, some mysterious nozzles, and the most creative double penetration Gina will ever scream to. That is . . . until she progresses to Level Two.

WARNING: Not to be read at work!


My review:

This was top 2 in Amazon’s Erotica category? That’s what’s wrong with this country.

To sum this all up in one word: No.

(Spoiler Alert)

I know BDSM, I know humiliation play, and I know very well all the devices that can incite pain and pleasure.

I made countless stupid mistakes in my youth, so I get Gina’s desperate attempt to get into an elite club at college, and I understand her willingness to have kinky sex for entry into that club.

The asshole who takes advantage of girls in desperation? He might be the only reasonable factor in the story.

A BDSM-virgin saying that 6 metal clamps on her labia does not induce pain, and only intense pleasure? No.

Same BDSM-virgin being double penetrated while 8 metal clamps and chains on her most sensitive parts (vagina and nipples) are being pulled during vigorous sex which continues for an extensive period of time and still saying that all of the above combination does not cause any pain? No.

She’s even an ass-virgin, but ok, some girls can take it rough even for her first time. Plausible.

But, the same girl also willing to be humiliated? Real humiliation: have a strange man pee on her while her vagina is stretched wide open? Very far-fetched mindset.

Hate to be the Grammar Nazi, but one either “removes” clothes or “takes off” clothes, one does not “remove off” clothes.

The writing is smooth in general, that is the only redeeming factor.

2 out of 5 stars in my book.

Book Review: Sexy Berkeley

This is about Sexy Berkeley (Sexy Series, #1) by Dani Lovell.

Screen Shot 2014-02-28 at 1.56.37 am

Short description:

A long-distance relationship with a hot American businessman is the last thing on Beatrice Hart’s mind when the day from hell ends with her drink-booking a last minute escape to glamorous Southern California.

With Bea’s firm belief that long distance never works, will she ever consider that that an exhilarating introduction at 35,000 feet could lead to anything more than a steamy holiday romance?

Daniel Berkeley is the irresistible, delectable, smoking hot bachelor, determined to make it happen.


My review:

I like a good chance encounter, especially while on vacation because your mind-set is perfect for romance and lust. The mind is more relaxed and less likely to be against adventures.

But this story was not executed well. I don’t mind British vocabulary at all, but Ms. Lovell sorely needs a better editor. How many times can you use the same word, and especially words like, “hot” and “baby” which are already over-used in the first place?

There were some unexpected amateurish errors, e.g. “go to home” instead of “go home” on the first page.

The sex scenes were not bad, but were quite mundane. Spices in the scenes themselves and the wording were in order.

Do not bother with book 2 of the series.

2 out of 5 stars in my book.

Book Review: Meet Me

This is about Meet Me by Azure Boone.

Screen Shot 2014-01-24 at 11.27.47 pm

Short description:

Tasha feels safe in her online affair. Plus she’s broken no hard moral rules. But that all changes when her cyber lover types those two forbidden words: Meet Me.


My review:

A 42-year-old Christian woman with 8 kids whose husband is a preacher. I was waiting to see how Ms. Boone would make this work. The fact that her husband cheated helped it along, but it sounded a bit sad that Tasha could be so easily turned on by a man in only two weeks’ time and just a few photos of his “backside”.

If there had been more of a sexual adventure or awakening it would have been more enjoyable, but there hadn’t been.

The ending was ridiculous.

The only redeeming factor is that Ms. Boone writes clearly and the narration flowed well. She describes herself as a paranormal romance writer on Twitter, I sure hope her paranormal novels are more convincing than this.

Pity, but this one didn’t work.

2 out of 5 stars in my book.
