By Eliza93Marie: I received a copy of Roughing It by Elizabeth Black, from Cara Sutra to provide an honest and unbiased review for the Pleasure Panel. Thank you Cara for giving me the opportunity.
By Louise Lace: I was lucky enough to receive The Spicy Secrets of a Jet Set Temptress by Lantana Bleu (Part 2) when I volunteered to review Part 1 as a member of Cara Sutra's Pleasure Panel team. The book arrived direct from the publisher in discreet packaging, an e-book version is also available.
By Fesure Maybe Controversial. Honest. Explicit. Three words on the front cover. These are definitely three words I would use to describe this book down to a tee. Think a few other words I would use are fantastic and amazing.
By Louise Lace I am lucky enough to be a VIP reviewer in Cara Sutra's Pleasure Panel team and as such, I was able to request a book to review for the panel (The Spicy Secrets of a Jet Set Temptress by Lantana Bleu) in addition to the monthly panels Cara hosts. As an erotic book worm, I jumped at the chance to add a new author to my collection.
By Shady Shania I have to say I love a good smutty book, and read them regularly, so I was over the moon to be selected to review Emanuelle And The Hound Of Love. I have never read anything by this author before, so was looking forward to reading it. The problem with reviewing a book is that not all people like the same books and the same writing style, so the review is personal to that person. I had looked on Amazon to see what others were saying about this author, and he seemed to get good reviews.
By Lily Palmer When I received a copy of The Woman and The Boy, I wasn't too sure what to expect. Whilst I love Anne Rice’s Sleeping Beauty Quartet, I have no interest in Fifty Shades of Grey and the many similar books created afterwards. I decided to put my preconceived ideas aside and to give this book a fair chance. I promise I will try not to spoil too much of the plot.
By Cammies on the Floor Alison Tyler’s Wrapped around your finger is a continuation story. I think perhaps the storyline may have been more enjoyable to me if I had read the first book and the Dom - in a new power dynamic - wasn't so flawless. It is about a submissive named Samantha more fully understanding and coming to terms with the wants of her Dom, Jack.
By Carnal Queen Talking of the sex scenes, the ones in this book are hot! I like Jacqui’s writing style, there are no outlandish euphemisms in sight, which I was relieved to discover. No ‘purple, pulsating man rods’ or ‘swollen, throbbing lady caves’ to be seen, which is good because I find all that twaddle a complete turn off. An erotic novel for me needs to have a ‘throb’ factor - If my vagina isn’t tingling and twitching, then it’s no bloody good! I’m happy to report that the straight talking, no nonsense use of raw language in this book to convey Maddy’s sexual adventures certainly got me all stirred up. The sex is undoubtedly vanilla though, it’s still hot and steamy, but there’s nothing out of the ordinary. Despite getting a little frustrated with the indecisive main character at times, I really enjoyed reading The Imperfect Gentleman.
The book has a lot of spanking and is heavy on the girl on girl action, it;s well written and not at all seedy but very steamy.The blurb on the back was interesting and part of the reason I wanted to read the book.
By Miss Emma MM An incredibly quick rundown of The Picture of Dorian Gray is that it centers on a naive, beautiful young man named Dorian. He becomes fast friends with what were basically two closeted queens in that time period. Lord Henry in particular sets out to corrupt Dorian. Meanwhile Basil paints Dorian, over and over, until his portrait is perfect. He gifts the painting to Dorian who finds out something quite peculiar. It turns out that any “sin” he commits doesn’t mar his actual appearance but only that of the painting. He goes through society for many years without aging or showing any wear even though he makes progressively more startling choices.
By Voluptasse I was immediately piqued, Diamonds in the Rough sounded exactly what I needed. A plot that I could really sink my teeth into and I wasn’t disappointed. I don’t want to give too much of the story away but after spending 7 years apart the cousins meet again and embark upon a battle of sexual wills that take them dancing erotically on a dark and mysterious path. However, the relationship between Adela and Wilson has been anything but normal and when incriminating letters disappear. Secrets that could shake the family to the core threaten their newfound happiness and Adela and Wilson must work together to put the ghosts of the past to rest before destroy everything they hold dear.
The Original Sinners books are the Doxy Wand of my reading collection. It’s my guaranteed literotica orgasm. I’m actually nervous starting a Tiffany Reisz book because I know I may as well not exist to the world until I have flown through it, feasting on the contents and finishing with as much hunger for more as when I started.
By Bella Orion After the success of 50 Shades of Grey, the market for all things kinky – from sex toy websites, to erotica, and even the hoards of fly by night wanna be dominatrices entering the scene – has become overtly saturated with many people jumping on the band wagon trying to cash in. And that is what it seems Grey has done here. With her impressive background in the adult industry, she's managed to make the rare transition from porn star to bona fide actress so its natural to assume that she has drawn on some of her professional experiences. Yet it also seems her PR machine made the assumption that her background in in the sexual arena will make this a noteworthy read.
The book starts off great, but by the time I got to the end I was pretty much skim reading, just wanting to finish it already because it was getting repetitive. As with any kind of erotica, you are bound to come across some hilarious and cringe-worthy terms used to describe the human anatomy and any sexual acts.
By A Winter Gilly starts with a life much like my own several years ago. A mother and a wife on the verge of screaming the house down in frustration and desperation. Worn down and with no time for herself, the little things bother her. She loses interest in sex with her husband - even the thought of him touching her makes her pull away - and she longs for silence. To be left alone. To be free.
By Jilly Boyd Emily Dubberley knows a thing or two about erotica, being the founder of the UK's first female-focussed erotica site Cliterati. She's written several brilliant guides on sex (including The Field Guide to F*cking) and has edited two charity anthologies. And now, she's got plans to spice up the Monday morning commute (which, let's face it, needs to happen because it's crap).
By Fesure Maybe The little stories in-between seem to focus on different characters with different scenarios each time which made the book much more enjoyable. It seems to cover all bases of BDSM to sex with many men in one night. So it is sure to cover anyone’s taste with an all rounded story. I also found the other perk to this book was that the font on the pages was a nice size and big enough for me to read! The chapters aren’t too big so it doesn’t drag on for ages like some do. It’s a book I’ve found I can put down and pick up again, remembering what happened and where I was.
By Fesure Maybe The style of the writing wasn’t what I was expecting. I’m used to lots of different stories about different characters. I found the style to be more of a biography about the author’s life, which don’t get me wrong I found very interesting. Not every day you find a book that goes in depth and talks openly about their sex life but they shouldn’t publicise this book as a sexual book which I feel it is portrayed as and more as a biography book. The aspect of it being a biography that I did enjoy was it gave me lots of ideas that I can do. You read a lot in stories of fictional characters that it tends to be scenarios a everyday person could not carry out, but with this book it gave me ideas that are more down to earth. Things that I could use on my partner and try in my own life.
By Pandora Tolson I wanted to give Abby a great big hug and a few jugs of beer whilst reading this part of the book, she handled it with wit and dignity and much respect to her. It was one of the things I always feared about my old anonymous blogs and I don’t think I could of handled what happened with as much class or wit as Abby did. During reading this book I went and ordered Girl with a One Track Mind, that’s how much I enjoyed this book.
