5 sighs

I thought I wouldn’t give out five sighs but I have to give it out to this book. So you understand I am not an erotica fan per se because I believe that sex has its place in a novel but it also has a taboo somewhat in my mind as well. So okay this book I love foreign men and how they react to other people. But what I like about this book is a couple of things that If you bear with me I will tell you about while not telling you about the book itself.

The first is this: “For three months, he’d hid the truth of his wife and two small children from her….”  A little farther down she wrote  “ Something had happened with the man in the photograph….” P24

…”I told you I wouldn’t be seeing anyone, making love to anyone…until you and I talked. ..But if you’ve been with another man, or want someone else, tell me now and I will leave you alone. For good.” P100

So that is the story in a nutshell. You can see the time line. This is the second thing that I like about the book. The development of the time line. And the third and final thing is the dithering between the two on their feelings. And you can see that they have some problems to overcome, mainly he is married with another family and he is having an affair with someone who is looking for a family of her own and he destroys her trust in relationships. But you can see what they go through to find their true family relationship at the end of the book.  I think the development of the story itself and the entertainment deserves 5 sighs.

Review of Night Moves
Review by Teri Harmon
I gave this novel 4 ½ sighs. It was a beautiful read. Let me draw your attention to the following:
It gave her hurt a chance to take the shape of caution
to the point that she hadn’t dated a single man—single or
otherwise, that is—since Grey’s death two years ago. She’d
filled her bedside drawer with self-gratifying sex toys and
stocked up quite a library of porn.

You know we all been there. When we are hurt and cautious. Well this young heroine lost the love of her life and still wanted some more love. She had a career and she had her friends. But something was missing. Then she met Brandon at the Laundromat.

… who cared about his last name? She was stuffing
her night clothes into one of the washers in the
apartment building’s Laundromat on the first floor. One
minute she was alone; the next minute she was standing
next to a hunk of a man with an enormous bulge
in his jeans. Eventually, her gaze swept upward,
lingering on his pecs, moving to his shadowed
jaw line and finally landing on his eyes. A whiskey
brown, and about as strong. Amusement twinkled there,
along with a breathtaking appreciation. Breathtaking
because he appeared to be appreciating her.

There it is the meeting to set up the story. And from then on ladies, I will let your eyes do the talking. I suggest some strawberries and whip cream to go along with it along with some pink champagne with a nice hot bath. Well worth the read ladies.

Review:

I gave this story 4 ½ sighs. I have read erotica from different authors and they all have a nice story line to start with. But then it becomes all about the sex. In this case, it starts out due to a broken freezer. And the heat is just too much for the two of them. They can barely keep their hands off each other. Hello! Despite the sex it’s a nice story about a young business owner who is having troubles like we all do with the equipment. And the romance or sexual relationship between the two main characters Jason and Kandy is nicely developed. You can see that the author makes them believable as a couple trying to make a relationship based on sex work. Jason had let her go before and felt that he had screwed up his life by doing so. So he is thankful for the second chance that he is getting to develop a relationship with her that will last. Before I close out this review I just wanted to give you my favorite line from here:

“All his talk about new beginnings, second chances, and promis­es of a new freezer were an intoxicating combination. But were they moving too fast? Sex was one thing. A relationship was something more.” Excerpt page 26.

I think you guys will find this an enjoyable read if you like erotica novels. And if a line like that doesn’t wet your appetite then you all have had that very same conversation with someone in your group of friends. So enjoy the read.

Review of Promise the Moon

Reviewed by: Teri Harmon

I gave this novel 4 1/2 sighs because it was entertaining, moved well and it kept me interested. For those in the know who read romance novels on the regular, it follows a formula that is easily followed in this novel. The fact that Garrett follows after Neely despite the fact that they are different shows that he cares for her. The fact that Neely cares for his daughter Mindy as if she were her own daughter shows Garret that she can fit into his world. It all comes together in the earthquake which injures Neely and brings the two of them close together hence the ending of the story which I will not spoil for your reading pleasure. I suggest ladies this is a good beach novel if you are looking for a quick read on the sandy beaches of whatever state your beach is in and it also is a good novel to gift even in between friends. Have a nice summer ladies!
