Unbound is a remarkable and interesting book. At first I didn’t think I would like travelling through 4 different pathway to the same story. How wrong was I? Unbound took me on an erotic journey with the lead character Charity McCormick. Charity is a divorcee who is at a stage where she is not sure what she wants out of life. She’s been married had a lover and now she wants something more… Which is given to the readers by 4 exceptional authors: Debra Hyde, Lacey Michaels, Cecilia Tan and Lissa Trevor . Each writer takes you through an alternative adventure experienced by Charity. The beautiful thing is you get to choose which path Charity’s life will take. I was so captivated by each pathway I read them all and was thoroughly entertained and lost in a varied world of eroticism. I was hook from beginning to end. It was so well written by all 4 authors I was unable to say which pathway I liked more. They were all riveting. A fantastic read. 5 stars.

The Chemistry of Fate


Lucee Lovett Reviews ‘The Chemistry of Fate’ Meradeth Houston


Amazon US

The Chemistry of Fate, introduced me to mystical beings known as Sary’s. A type of angel, created from the spiritual essence of babies who died before taken their first breath. They are immortal, they look human and walk the earth. The story is told from two point of view. That of the main character Tom and Ari the Sary who is assigned to investigate Tom. The story begins with Tom. He has found a journal written by his grandfather a Sary who gave up his immortality and wings to be with Tom Grandmother. The Sary existence is a secret from humans and they want to remain that way. Basically this is a boy meets girl ‘angel’ romance. The plot is predictable and a little dry. This said it was not an unpleasant read. It was interesting but lacked essence. The Sary were immortalised to serve a purpose which I was not given an opportunity to be apart off in this story. I like the idea of the Sary and I like the book. Nevertheless I finished this book feeling cheated.

The Secret Life of Girls


Lucee Lovett’s Review on `The Secret Life of Girls’ by Chloe Thurlow


Amazon US

The Secret Life of Girls – is a revelation of a young woman’s, journey to find herself sexually. It’s an intriguing story. Initially the reader is given the impression that Isabella (Bella) is naive and vulnerable. She is curious about her body, and loves looking at her naked form in the mirror and pleasures herself frequently. Bella’s strength of character begins to manifest when her mother announces her impending nuptials and what this meant for, Bella’s future. Bella was getting a step-father and was being shipped off to a Catholic Finishing School for girls into the bargain. In an act of defiance, Bella flirts mercilessly with the gardener, as well as her mother’s fiancé. Bella’s sexual awakening really begins when she arrives at her boarding school. The reader is skilfully drawn into an impressive list of Bella’s sexual encounters. However, each encounter was initiated by the central character, with a fascinating underlining purpose, best known only to Bella. This is a full-length erotic story, which verifies Chloe Thurlow as a talented and creative writer. Whose focus is to entertain and captivate her audience – her style and portrayal in this book was modern, humorous and sensual. Creating a character who is not afraid to explore her sexual desires. This book ticked a lot of boxes. An awesome read.

Scapemakers


Lucee Lovett book review of ‘Scapemaker’ by Steven V. Cyper


Amazon US

Scapemaker – is a very long fantasy novel – I struggled to read the first few chapters. I did not think I was going to be able to finish this book. I found the book a bit confusing and long winded at the start, although necessary to introduce the characters. I found myself returning to different parts of the story for clarification. From what I could gather, the story is about people who can travel between realities and an alternate dream world. It’s a fantasy adventure story full of fantastical beings. Unfortunately for me, although it has an interesting concept, it is not the type of fantasy story I’m used to, or would normally read. The story moves in many interesting and intriguing directions. Nevertheless I found it difficult to get into. This is not a criticism. The author has done an amazing job of creating a whole new world of imagination. I have to be honest and say this review is subjective as it a fantasy adventure for a different literary palate then mine. It’s a good book for the right audience.

Lucee Lovett Review of Cherishing Destiny by Noelle Blakely


Amazon US

Initially I did not think much of the introduction to the story as it started off with the lead Character waking up in a cave with broken bones and other injuries. The descriptions were long and did not feel necessary for creating intrigue when leading up to the plot. I started to feel bored and a little inpatient. It did not help that the book is written in several different fonts. Shifting from Capitals, to bold, italic and so on. However as the story moved along initiated by the lead while waiting to heal – as she began reminiscing – using the memories inherited from her mother. The story took on an entirely different nuance. I became absorbed with the new characters introduce and their stories as they unfold.
The author has created quite a new thread to the usual Vampire and Were-people tales. One which I liked and am fascinated by. Within this one story the authors as given rise to several different stories that could easily take on a life of their own and I’m interested to see where she take it. I’m not comfortable giving a synopsis to this story as I don’t think it would do the book the justice it deserve. There are so many creative twists and turns that I think to summarise such creative thinking would be a crime. Nonetheless I think cherishing destiny has been let down by a lot of repetition in description and dialogue. That being said it was not difficult to follow just a little frustrating.

I loved the ideas presented in this story and feel that anyone who can look past the technical and grammatical errors and just accept this book for the uniqueness of it. Will enjoy it. I am looking forward to reading the second book ‘Following Destiny’.

A review of Killing the Desire by Leanna Harrow


Amazon US

‘Killing the Desire’ is an erotic detective story, full of mystery and intrigue. The author takes you into her world of descriptive dialogue within the first two paragraphs. Captivating your imagination and attention throughout. As well as tapping into your other senses. The story is tantalizing and explicit. It’s a journey through loss, family crisis, love, lust and betrayal. I found this book entertaining and a comfortable read.

 ‘The Little Red Kilt’ by Elizabeth Woodham


Amazon US

‘The Little Red Kilt’ is a provocative short story as describe in its own introduction. It follows the events of the narrator, who is the female lead over specified times; during the course of five non-consecutive days. For a short story I found the texts very descriptive and a good aid to the imagination. I have an extensive vocabulary and educated at Masters Level, nevertheless this standard of education did not assisted me when trying to decipher some of the new and interesting terminology that I was introduced to while reading this book. An example (“ I fish for more, knowing my own breath echoes Southern Comfort, sweet and cloying at first, before burning liquid sears epiglottis and oesophagus”. I found myself reaching for the dictionary quite a few times. It could just be me but I think the highfaluting language used in this book distracts from what could have been a good read. This may put off the lay reader who could struggle to understand the author’s delivery. Which is a shame as it’s a stimulating, thought provoking story with a curious ending.

Epiglottis – a small flat part at the back of the tongue which closes when you swallow to prevent food from entering the tube which goes to the lungs
Oesophagus – the tube in the body which takes food from the mouth to the stomach

   ‘A Good Son’  by Donahue Campbell – Bartholin Books


Amazon US

This book contains explicit scenes and language to sexual situations.  It’s a short story, the main character and narrator being Professor Highsmith.   The other characters are Ben and Tyler.  The plot is based on a homosexual encounter between the three men. It has an interesting plot, but it’s not well written. There is insufficient description in regards to location and physical positioning of the characters, leading to an inability to image the scenarios.   I found a lack of coherence throughout the story, becoming somewhat clearer towards the middle and end. The book did not grab my interest at the start due to the lack of descriptive text and intrigue. A tedious read that will not have you hankering for more. Reading this book may feel like a chore rather than entertainment.
