Forbidden Fantasies: Lulu by Markus Fredricks {Book Review}

Review2A photographer, who’s lost interest in his own wife, suddenly finds himself fantasizing about his new fifteen year old neighbor. Despite the fact he has a daughter who is the same age, he cannot help but be aroused any time Lulu is near. He knows that a relationship with any fifteen year old, at his age, is taboo and punishable by prison. Will he be able to control himself, with her teasing him only fifty feet from his office window?

I found the dialogue in the story to be a bit unrealistic and forced. This book is definitely categorized as erotica, and most of the story stuck to graphic subject matter. This book is mainly talking about sexual desires that are considered wrong or taboo is some cases, so this book isn’t necessarily for anyone interested in erotica. It has a different sort of erotica feel while reading it. I thought it was going to be unnecessary taboo, but I ended up liking it enough to give it a 3/5.

Redfall: Freedom Fighters by Jay J. Falconer {Review}

Review2Book #2
Although some of the authors plots can be a bit of a standard concept in most books and movies these days, Falconer knows how to add enough twist to make his books stand out from the mass. Even when I was starting to doubt his ability to have new ideas on old plots, he surprised me every single time!

This being the third book I’ve read of his, I think it’s safe to say I really like his writing style. He packs it so full of action, it’s almost non-stop. The climaxes in the book are often, with very little time in between. In this book, there seems to be a theme of conspiracy and espionage.

Of course, Falconer shows off his knowledge of military intelligence, and other combative training which goes great with his imagination on what the government and society would be like in the intense situations he writes.

One of my favorite aspects of Falconer’s writing style is the way he can drop hints about the mysteries of the books, making the reader feel involved in the unveiling and uncovering process. He’s definitely not one of those authors who just fills the pages with filler, everything he writes has purpose and reason.

All his characters are plenty developed, so it was great to get reconnected with them again, after book 1. I have already read book 1, and wouldn’t recommend skipping it before reading. The characters are so badass they’re worth becoming invested in with book 1. It’s a 5/5 for me!

Soulless

Close your eyes.

Think of a dark room.

Your trapped in the middle.

As you open your eyes it’s so dark it feels as if they are still closed. You feel around for a familiar friend, but all you can feel is the damp, cold dead bodies sprawled on the floor.

All strangers.

You feel a warm liquid trickle down your cheek.

You figure out what it is.

But, alas it’s only a simple tear. Or is it?

The silence of the room pierce your ear drums. You let out a high pitched scream to try to cure the inanity, until you realize there is no cure. Not a single medicine that can save you from the demons you fight every day inside.

These aren’t normal demons, but only the kind who can hide in the black hold in your heart. You can feel your soul slowly exit your body and rise to the top of the room.

A single light flickers o, and you look up to see your inner self pointing, laughing at you.

The insanity pushes the limit.

Dud the demons win? Indeed.

They celebrate their victory as you fall to the floor and join the group of strangers.

Redfall by Jay J. Falconer {Book Review}

Review2Book #1
I’ve only read one other book besides Redfall from Falconer, and I’ve noticed that he has a great ominous and dark feel to his writing. There are parts to Redfall that I would even categorize as morbid and perversive. He does a great job at portraying anguish and despair.

With this being said, I was instantly hooked after reading the memorable description of the Pay-Per-View Execution in the first Chapter. The disheartenment that is projected onto the reader, cannot come from just any great author.

The combination of tribulation with science fiction, is what really caught my attention on this book! Of course, there’s tons of mystery and intrigue mixed in with everything, which keeps you hooked from the very beginning. On top of all that, Falconer also has an amazing way of describing the intense action scenes.

The book is written from many different view points, and it switches throughout each chapter. I found this really drew me into the book. Sometimes to find out what happens to your favorite character, you have to read through a side character first. I can always appreciate an author who can write character and scene breaks properly, keeping the reader hooked.

It’s not a very long book, so it makes a perfect read for road trips, plane rides, or a rainy day inside. I’m just happy that the second book has already been written, because I’m absolutely hooked on the characters and what’s going to happen to them next.

This isn’t your normal dystopian sic-fi read. I give it 5/5!

Heartbreak, Mourning, Loss by Ginette Paris {Review}

Review2

Volume One: Detach or Die

Heartbreak, mourning, and loss are three words I can say I am familiar with. Unlike other books I’ve read about these topics, I did not throw this book across the room in disgust and frustration. Her writing style was logical and to the point with specific examples from people in similar situations.

After finishing reading the whole book in one sitting, I did not feel like I had wasted my time as I have so many times before with other books on this subject matter. There are plenty of ideas and concepts she has impressed upon me, which I predict will change how I live my life in the moment, and how I view life after things have already occurred.

This book can best be described as realistic and direct. There isn’t much filler, giving the reader the information without distracting from too many examples or sidetones. After giving it 5/5 I know I’ll be recommending it to some people I know could benefit from reading this book.

Meritorium by Joel Ohman {Book Review}

Review2After a few chapter into book two, I knew this book was going to be much slower than the first in the series. There is a an abundance of information about various animals, which I enjoyed the most. I think theres a big improvement in Mr. Ohman’s writing style since Meritropolis. His writing has become much more direct, getting the point across clearly, with less filler words.

There is a lot of self reflection and the major characters are analyzing themselves and their situations much more. This book ended much like the first book, with hopes for an additional book! I give this book 4/5.

Meritropolis by Joel Ohman {Book Review}

Review2

There are many parts of this book that resemble other plots in popular books. Meritropolis can be easily described as a dystopian. Considering the ages of the characters, and that Mr. Ohman writes in conservative way without adult content and violence, it can easily be put in the YA genre.

If you like Maze Runner, Divergent, or even Hunger Games, you’ll want to read this one considering the similarities they all have. There are plenty of social issues, and personal issues for everyone to relate and connect to in some manner.

The writing style took me a little while to get used to, as I found some sections of the book to be overly detailed. There were times too much information was thrown out at me, and it took a bit more to fully comprehend, than I normally enjoy.

Meritoropolis definitely caught and hooked my attention from the beginning. The ending will have you hooked and looking for the sequel! I give this book 4/5.

Devotional: Erotic Stories from the Sensual Mind by Phil Harvey {Review}

Review2I believe the author wrote this book with the purpose of making it sound scattered and random, but I feel it came off as unorganized and disheveled. The stories were a bit confusing to grasp. I wasn’t always sure what was being described, who was speaking, or what was being referenced. Re-reading portions of the story over and over again, became something that happened on every page.

The stories themselves, and what I understood from them, seemed to be entertaining though. Most were to bizarre and weird to be made up. They’re not all erotic in nature, but I wouldn’t recommend it for anyone who doesn’t want to read about extremely sexual scenes wrapped in drugs and lies.

I didn’t understand any true meaning behind any of the stories, except for the readers enjoyment. I applaud any author who can write down their life experiences, and that in itself is admirable. I give this book 3/5.

The Searcher by Ray Dacolias {Review}

Review2
After finishing chapter one, I instantly knew it would would be a book that made a lasting impression. This is the second book I’ve read by Ray Dacolias. I really enjoyed reading The Tragedy of Woman and it was the reason I was so excited to read The Searcher.

I would describe this book as being descriptive and wordy, but for the most part, it wasn’t too bad. He really knows how to describe things in a way without being excessive or redundant. There were some times where I came across a description surroundings, that would go on for a few pages, but I thought that it was fastidiously intended.

There is a great amount of back story with each of the characters, including the villains. The reader will fall in love with the heroes, and anticipate the downfall of the villains. Everyone is so adequately described, there’s no sense of confusion on who the characters are, or what their purpose is to the plot.

Along side the plot, there are plenty of controversial topics and philosophical questions, which made this a book I spread over a few days as I found myself pondering quite often. I got a sense that the author might be considerably religious.

Overall, I would categorize this book as a mystery, but since there is so philosophy and other musings, I found I was initially torn by which direction I wanted the book wanted to go in, but ended up just going for the fusion the author intended.

The Searcher will infiltrate your mind with philosophical thoughts and vivid imagery, definitely worth a 5/5!

The Tragedy of Woman by Ray Dacolias {Review}

Review2
What a delightfully long and enjoyable book. It’s the first book I’ve read by Mr. Ray Dacolias, and after reading The Tragedy of Woman, I plan on getting his other books. Oscine is a valiant and strong woman who has survived many tragedies that no woman should ever have to endure or go through. It was like reading a nightmare at some points, and what made it worth reading, was how she handled and overcame the nightmares in her life.

As a survivor of my own nightmares, it was an interesting read, that kept me hooked from the very beginning, all the way to the very end. The author takes the reader on a rough journey of emotions and I found that each emotion I went through added to my love of the book. You can’t help but feeling each emotion invoked by Mr. Ray Dacolias in his writing.

I found it refreshing to read about her difficulties and joys in a new marriage, and new baby. Not many authors write about the reality of what happens behind door with a newly wed couple and/or a new mother. Mr. Ray Dacolias does a great job at painting a picture of the life Oscine has lived, and I know many other people can empathize with her story since the reality of what she went through is all to real in the real world.

Most people who have gone through a rough childhood, end up leading a rough adult life, and it wasn’t surprising to see that her life was full of complications. I really enjoyed the realness of this book and how close to the truth of many women lives it represented. I give this book a 5/5 and recommend it to anyone who has overcome obstacles and had a difficult or less than ideal life.

Songs of the Deliverer by Elvo Bucci

Review2The concept of this plot is complicated. Its a modern version of the story of Christ. I think you need to be familiar with the bible and the stories of Jesus in order to completely understand what the author is trying to convey. A lot of the imagery from reading this book came from the religious art work and other images I’ve been exposed to, and not so much what the author was expressing. The author just stuck to the story line, with few descriptive words. I felt like I was reading a modern version, but everyone in my mind held the appearance of being from the time of the real Jesus. Overall I give this book a 3/5.

While the Savage Sleeps by Andrew E. Kaufman {Book Review}

Review2
Of all the books I’ve read that have been categorized as a thriller/horror, none have fit into the category as Andrew E. Kaufman’s books do. I have been hooked on his writing ever since picking up the book Twisted which is by far the most…well…twisted novel I’ve ever read. This book easily gets second place!

There are two main characters living in different parts of New Mexico. How they are connected is one of the twists in the book! For the most part, it seems most of the plot itself is full of complicated twists and turns that are impossible to predict.

I have read the book and listened to the audiobook. I probably read the book too fast since I was so into it, but the audiobook was so thrilling, I ended up turning on the lights while listening in bed in the dark one night.

Despite what the other reviews say about this book this is by far one of my new favorite books! I don’t think the other reviews are from readers who understood that this book has GORE and VIOLENCE! It’s not for the faint of heart. I am stressing that this is a psychological thriller and anyone who’s a fan of that genre, will love this book!

I was immediately swallowed up into the story, and did not put this book down until I was finished. I was so anxious to find out what was happening in the story, that “one more chapter” ended up in me completing the book in a day. I love Kaufman’s books and hope there will be more to come!

And the Point of All This Agony Is…? by Aphrodite Phoenix {Book Review}

Review2
This collection of short stories may have some sexual undertones to it. Phoenix has previously written a book about her life when she worked for sex. It definitely altered my perspective on things regarding that job position. This book reflects much of her style based of what I learned about her from her first book. I found it to be a great collection, I enjoyed almost every single one. I give this book a 4/5!

Erotic Seduction by Moll Molone {Book Review}

Review2I found that the characters in this book lacked depth. Much of the interaction between characters did not add to the plot, and I found to be quite pointless. In fact, much of the story had nothing to do with the plot.

But you’re not reading this book for character depth and a twist in the plot. You’re reading it for the steamy sex scenes, which this book did not lack. The main theme is dominance and submission, but there plenty of other scenes without it.

Overall, I rate this at a 3/5.

Sex and the Office by Kim Elsesser {Book Review}

Review2
This book is just packed with information on women’s rights, sexual harassment in the work place, and the relationships between men and women in the work place. It can be a controversial topic, but this is written very black and white.

If you’re a young aspiring female, this is a great book to read just to have the information stored in the brain. You never know when this is going to be an issue, or when you will need to know your rights as a woman in the workplace.

It’s a difficult topic for both parties, the woman in the workplace who’s at risk, along with the men who are accused or worried of being accused of being difficult. A man is worried about how he comes off, and what comments might be taken wrong.

Overall this is a great book for everyone to read, it had information that everyone should be aware of! I give this book a 4/5.

The Boss by Abigail Barnette {Book Review}

Review2The Boss is the fist book in the series. It’s a romance novel that has a hot and steamy S&M theme to it. He’s the dominant male boss while she the submissive female personal assistant. Their back story on how they know each other from the past is a little weird, and very unrealistic but I was on board. Neil is twice the age of Sophie, but when it’s love and lust, does age really matter? Did I mention he has a sexy English accent? I’ll probably check out the other books in the series. This one wasn’t half bad. I give it 3/5.

Review2The man Natalie loved went and betrayed her by committing the ultimate evil act he could possibly commit. He cheated on her, with her best friend. For months! Now, she drowns out her sorrows with booze and her new best friend Julie. Regardless of alcohol, she still questions their motives and why it had to happen to her!

Despite the “fuck you” written on her forehead, she still manages to catch the attention of some males in the bar she usually goes to. She quickly catches the eye of Jet, who’s set out to have her.

This is a short and sweet romantic story. There isn’t a lot of x-rated scenes making this more of a sweet romance than a raunchy one. I give it 3/5.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling {Review}


Review2
Harry Potter Book #1

I’ve of course read this book many times since it’s release back in the late 90’s. I love it more and more each time. This time around, I decided to listen to the audiobook! It was amazing! Since the very first time I’ve read them, I’ve always thought J.K. Rowling was absolutely amazing! It feels as if she’s really attended Hogwarts herself, and was telling a story about her time spent in the magic world.

It really is a magical read.

You won’t be able to distinguish Hogwarts from real life. Ms. Rowling really brings the characters and the castle alive for the reader.

This book will captivate and engross you from the first sentence, regardless of your age or religious background. The imagination and fantasy sucked me in and I will always love and appreciate the Harry Potter collection!

The Sword and the Dragon by M.R. Mathias {Review}

Review2
It’s always so bittersweet to start a long book with characters that are so easy to get attached to. On one hand I feel a sense of achievement and excitement that I finished this book, while I’m sad I have nothing left to read about the characters I spent so much time reading about. There are characters you’ll love to hate, and there are others who fit the brave and loyal hero role, perfectly.

This is your very definition of an epic fantasy! There’s so much action with amazingly described battle scenes. The story flows well once you get the hang of how it transitions from each scene.

The story as a whole is an investment for the reader. There is so much going on here, and a lot of information that you must absorb to fully understand the plot. There is so much in this book with dragons, wizards, elves, mystical creatures and you wrap them all up with high adventure and you’ve got a pretty great book!

Forged Through Glory by DeZré Storm {Book Review}

Review2

This book literally contains it all, science fiction, action, adventure, romance, and erotica. I have read my fair amount of books in each of these genres, but very rarely get to read them all together. It was quite interesting going from the action and adventure of a special operations unit of mainly men, to the erotica portion of the book when they gain a new member of the squad who happens to be female.

FTG is full of surprise, and imagination. It’s a fairly descent length book, but I read it much quicker than anticipated due to how great it flowed together. I imagine those who pick this book up for the adventure and action will be quite pleased with the erotica thrown in, and those who might pick this book up for the erotica, will be hooked to the science fiction plot as well!

I only wished that the characters themselves were described as well as everything else in the story. Regardless, the plot was creative and fun! Overall, I give this book a 4/5.

After You, In Love Arrest by Mario Gabriel Adame {Review}

Review2
I was very interested in beginning this collection after I read that the poems were a reflection of the current generations outlook on love. As a society, we interact much differently than we once did due to technology, and because of this I believe we are viewing dating, relationships, and love much differently. Mario Gabriel Adame does an amazing job with the rhythm and flow of his words. Each reader will see and feel something different with each poem. It’s a great collection, a 5/5.

Illuminarium by Truth Devour {Book Review}

Soliloquy’s Labyrinth Five Series Book #1

Review2
One thing I can say for certain about Truth Devour’s books, is they all have a theme that contains strong language, and some in your face scenes that always get the point across. The descriptions she provides give the reader a great mental image, and suck them right into the story line from the very beginning.

I would categorize this book as a supernatural thriller/fantasy.

The beginning goes into great detail describing the Redwood National Forest, and why the characters were drawn to the trees and the nature it contains. With all the negativity and the worst sides of humanity, Harper is searching for harmony and peace in her life. What a better place than Redwood National Forest, known for it’s very qualities.

Harper finds and follows an owl, leading her to find a strange and curious book in the woods which leads to her life changing upside down and sucked into a strange and uncharted world.

During her expedition she lives alongside the character in the book, York. Although York’s life stories are very much so in the past, Harper feels a connection to the stories in the present. This may sound confusing, but Truth did a great job at taking both stories and putting them on the same parallel line, keeping the reader on track.

The book contains a heavy amount supernatural, crime, thrill, and mystery. The concept of this book is absolutely unique and amazing! You won’t find anything else like it! I wasn’t able to put it down without finishing it. It’s a story within a story. The characters hold many dimensions and were described to perfect detail. I enjoyed this book very much and rate it at a 5/5.

This isn’t the first book I’ve read by Truth Devour, and I know it won’t be the last!
