Book & eBook Review – Temptations 1


Review by Jared Dean

Temptations 1 contains 7 short stories with something to appeal to most fans of well written erotica.

Whether your fantasy house-hunt is something like the one described by Elizabeth Cage in Bliss, or the daydream fantasies of Cyanne, there is something to make your blood run warmer.

The stories are all well written, with good characterisation, such as the repulsive teacher described in Kitti Bernetti’s ‘The School Reunion’ where the once ugly duckling has become a Swan and uses her feminine wiles to seduce, and then humiliate her former teacher. There is the taboo busting Confession by Kristina Wright, where a girlfriend services her boyfriend’s own father, or in the Window Cleaner’s boy, where all eyes are on the young man who cleans the office’s windows, but the narrator in Carmel Lockyer’s story only has eyes for his older, but clearly virile colleague.

In Confidante, Beverly Langland’s characters are looking for a new Slave and a Master, and the story tells of their auditioning each other, whilst in the collection’s closing story Two’s Company, Georgia Brown describes how the fantasy may not be everything that the man in the relationship wants or needs.

There is heat of all types in this collection, with none of the stories outstanding their welcome, or boring the audience. Hunt it down, it may make you think, as well as making you feel slightly warm.

Temptations is available as a book and ebook for Xcite Books

The Education of Victoria


The Education of Victoria by Angela Meadows

At sweet 16 Victoria is every father’s nightmare – horny! When the books starts she’s caught making out with the stable boy. Shocked that his daughter was ready to disgrace herself with the peasants he employs, her father packs her off to the Venice School for Young Ladies where she will be educated in all the arts a young woman needs before she can enter society.

Either his letter went astray or the business acquaintance recommending the school had ulterior motives, because it turns out to be the Venus School for Young Women which has nothing to do with Venice and everything to do with the Roman Goddess. Within hours of arriving at her new school and meeting the principle, Madame Thackeray, Victoria is being introduced to the wonders of sex.

What follows is both an exceedingly erotic story and a usable sex manual. Victoria is taught everything she needs to know to pleasure a man and have a satisfying sex life herself, in explicit enough detail for a reader to pick up the same skills.

Victoria is a natural and takes to her new life with gleeful abandon, she has numerous sexual encounters with the staff of the school and her fellow pupils and later unleashes her skills on the wider world.

Her lessons expand to include sado-masochism with scenes of spanking from early on in the book building up to much more extreme scenes of torture and rape as the book moves towards it’s conclusion. Some of it is quite unpalatable, Angela Meadows is definitely pushing the boundaries at times, and it’s not a story that will appeal to all readers.

Most of the story was a nice easy read with steamy sex scenes that were definitely some of the hottest I have read – the scene where Victoria’s birthday was celebrated with a full on orgy was particularly well written.

This is definitely a book for those who like it full on, but if that’s you, give it a go, you’ll probably enjoy it as much as I did.

Sex in the City – London


“Variety’s the very spice of life, that gives it all flavour.”  So says the author William Cowper and so say I in regards to a recent read of “Sex in the City”.  This collection of 12 erotic stores is hot and packs a punch.  There is something for everyone; the stories cover everything from love to BDSM to raunchy sex to…well whatever you might think of really.

Book Review: Love on the Dark Side – Black Lace


Love on the Dark Side
Reviewed by Lucy Felthouse. Find her on Twitter and Facebook.

As a fan of Black Lace (RIP), erotica and the paranormal, Love on the Dark Side seemed like the perfect read to me. Published a few years back, it finally made its way to the top of my enormous to be read pile. Featuring esteemed authors such as Mathilde Madden, Olivia Knight, Kristina Lloyd, Madelynne Ellis, Janine Ashbless and Portia Da Costa, my expectations were high. Unfortunately, the book didn’t quite live up to it.

However, this was less to do with the authors and the writing, and more to do with the way the book was put together. Yes, all the stories were paranormal, but they were all pretty varying in scope; from vampires and werewolves to incubi, succubi and spirits of those who have passed on. I think within paranormal, people have their favourite sub-genres and therefore they’d rather read more on those particular subjects. I know I would. Of course, this is just my personal opinion, so if you’re a lover of all things supernatural, then go ahead and check out this book.

Real stand out stories in this book for me were Mathilde Madden’s What Witches Want and Madelynne Ellis’ Lust for Blood. However, this goes back to my previous comment about sub-genres. Madden’s story deals with werewolves, which I never really had a ‘thing’ for until I read her Silver Trilogy series of books, all of which were extremely sexy. Ellis’ story, as you may have guessed, is about vampires – and not only that, a bit of girl-guy-guy action. A winner all round, really.

Overall, a bit hit and miss – but it’s got a good enough quality of writing and top authors to make it worth reading if it’s your cup of tea. Check out my Book Depository link below to find the cheapest price – you won’t mind paying it.

Book Review: Random Acts of Lust reviewed by Madeline Elayne


Have you ever had one of those days when the whole of the universe seems to be telling you “why not?” When you notice the cute boy at the front desk checking out your legs and flashing you a smile that’s just a little bit too long, and you know that he would be yours for the asking? Or you think back on your school girl days and that moment when your best friend’s hand accidentally brushed against yours and you wondered what it would be like to explore each other further, but couldn’t bring yourself to even consider it?

Primula Bond’s Random Acts of Lust is all about visiting the fantasy of those “what if moments.” The women in these short works of literary escapism all decide to throw caution to the wind and indulge in those naughty sexual adventures that all women fantasize but most of us never do anything about.

Book Review: The Adventures of a London Call Boy by Cara Sutra


Review by Cara Sutra
This entertaining read details the hedonistic adventures of a young man in London who thoroughly enjoys sex. Deciding to combine his love of the sexual act with women and his lack of finances, he embarks upon a trail of saucy naughtiness which will leave you horny, empathising, giggling and breathless for the next encounter.
I did not think I would enjoy this book as much as I did; perhaps because of the reputation of gigolos and the like. Male prostitution is not only rare but still a novel taboo in our culture, for it to be tackled head on in this book shows a courage and a flair for the creative.
Our bed bouncing buccaneer may earn a living by giving sexual favours but there is an element of respect for the women he meets, a desire to at least sexually fulfil and please them. The women are rightfully given full and rounded characters, all aware of his role and purpose and instead of being desperate creatures they are instead voracious sexual beings, attractive, seductive.
In giving the main character a female ‘best friend’, the author very cleverly widens the book even further to a female audience. Perhaps without this side-kick element the book would have been better off on the males-only erotic fiction shelf.
The story is anecdotal yet pacy, exciting and raunchy all at once. The fly on the wall detail leaves you feeling positively voyeuristic, in simply the best way. In places you do wonder whether this really can all be pure fiction, as the narrative reads like an autobiography, keeping you even closer in touch with the character’s feelings and emotions through his journey.
For a red hot alternative to the traditional female led erotic fiction novels, you need look no further than Adventures of a London Call Boy. I thoroughly enjoyed it, much to my surprise, and I feel that it has great appeal to any man or woman seeking a saucy Summer read.

Book Review for Ultimate Decadence by Joanna Cake


As usual with these short story selections, it’s not something you can sit down and read all in one sitting.  Well not for me anyway.  I find if you read more than three or four in a row, you start to lose the impetus.

What I enjoyed most about this book, apart from the outstanding quality of the writing, was that there were so many different interpretations of the term ‘ultimate decadence’.  It really did take you into so many different scenes, settings and scenarios at the behest of the author’s take on the subject matter.

Quite revelatory and very arousing.
