Sophie Stern – Curves and the Alien (Review & Excerpt)

Curves and the Alien by Sophie Stern

Series: Aislin’s Alien Adventures #1
Source: Review by Request
My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars

When Aislin goes to a party, she isn’t looking for love, for romance, or for a boyfriend.

She’s especially not looking for someone who tries to kill her.

But when she’s unexpectedly saved and abducted by a friendly, sexy, jaw-droppingly hot alien, it’s time for Aislin to start figuring out what she is looking for.

This novella is book one in a new series that follows Aislin on her adventures with Eustace the alien; however, it can be enjoyed as a standalone story.

Allyson James – Rio

Rio by Allyson James

Series: Tales of the Shareem #2
Source: Personal Library
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

Nella of Ariel is on the run, finding herself on Bor Narga, alone, penniless, friendless. She can trust no one—except the tall, amazing man who saves her from death by assassin bot and carries her off to his hideaway.

He’s a Shareem, he says. Rio. Level three, which means dark and dangerous pleasures.

Nella has no clue what Shareem are, but Rio is enticing, sexual, rude, crude, and makes her laugh. He also burns fire through her blood as he teaches her to trust him, the only way a level-three Shareem knows how to . . .

Rio had been on his way to get himself off stifling Bor Narga, where he lives as a near-slave. But he’s intrigued by his damsel in distress. And she needs his protection. Protecting her and teaching her is worth missing his transport, and maybe being stuck on this rock forever.…

Star_full48Star_full48Star_full48Star_half

Smutty Science Fiction; I am in Shareem Heaven!
This over the top Erotic adventure is the perfect steamy escape…

Shareem — men created in the laboratories of DNAmo to be tall, tight-assed and long-cocked, and know every way to bring a woman to ecstasy and keep her there. For days.

The Tales of the Shareem Series continues with another highly erotic Science Fiction adventure! This time featuring Rio and a damsel in distress…

RIO
Level Three Shareem

I’m a level three Shareem, a Dom. I make women do things they’d never dream of doing. I make them beg for things they never knew they wanted.
I spank them when they’re bad and pleasure them when they’re good. I whip them ‘til they come, then I kiss away the hurt.

Rio has been attempting to flee the planet Bor Narga for years. Just when he has his chance of smuggling himself onto a ship, he finds himself face-to-face with an assassin bot & a choice: Save an innocent woman or flee the planet which views him as a sex slave…

NELLA
A Princess on the run

She was innocent. She’d never met anything like a Shareem, and she had no sexual experience. He had to go slowly.
Rio had never gone slowly in his life. The women who wanted Rio knew what they were getting themselves into. No woman picked a level three Shareem without already knowing about sex — most of them were bored with sex and wanted something more.

Nella was captured and held prisoner for three months. She managed to escape her captor, and hopped transport after transport before landing on Bor Narga. Now she must trust the stranger who saved her from the assassin bot, but does she have any trust left?

For the Record: This book won’t be winning any literary awards. It’s not the best Erotica I’ve ever read… Hell, it’s not even the best Alien Erotica I’ve ever read. It’s campy at times, and completely over the top sexually. But you know what? I LOVE this series!

Judge if you want…

drool worthy aliens,
voyeurism,

Mimi Strong – Stardust

Stardust by Mimi Strong

Series: Peaches Monroe #1

My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

There I was, minding my own business at Peachtree Books when this lunatic comes racing in the door and knocks me into his arms. I would have ripped him a new one, but he was hot. Like I-want-to-have-your-sexy-babies-now hot.

I feel like I know him, because I stare at his gorgeous face on TV every week. Dalton Deangelo. In the firm, sculpted flesh. Have I mentioned how hot he is? My panties practically flew right off.

Now he wants to get to know me. I can’t say no to that face … or those captivating green eyes.

I’m just a regular girl, and he’s rich and famous with no body fat. So, why is he chasing me? And what is this secret of his the reporters are trying to uncover?

I try to keep my eyes wide open. I’ve made terrible, stupid mistakes in the past. But Dalton Deangelo’s touch turns me to Jell-O.

Star_full48Star_full48Star_full48Star_half

An adorable blend of comedy, romance, and awkwardness…

“Please don’t say the f-word, and I don’t mean fuck.”
“Okay. Not fat. We’ll call my ass… too wide for narrow minds.”

This was a sweet little BBW romance with a superstar twist. Who doesn’t dream of running into their celebrity crush and getting caught up in a whirlwind romance? This story features a ton of awkward (but endearing) humor and is told from the perspective of the heroine, complete with sassy inner-monologue…

Petra “Peaches” Monroe

“Just be yourself,” I whispered to myself. “Except be more fucking charming and not weird. And stop talking to yourself.”

Peaches runs a little bookstore in her home town, and at the age of twenty-two she’s finally coming to terms with her body (which is curvier than most) and her personality (which lacks a brain to mouth filter). She’s established the perfect quiet existence in her hometown until a stranger barges through the door of her bookstore and literally knocks her off her feet.

Dalton Deangelo

“Let’s just be two souls tonight. Two souls who are made of stardust, and found their way back to each other, the way they were destined to.”

He’s the dreamy star of a TV Vampire drama and the object of every woman’s fantasy – a certain roommate of our heroine even named her vibrator after him – and somehow the stars aligned to have him shooting a film in the same small town that Peaches grew up in…

Add in some precocious paparazzi,
some post high-school drama,
crazy extended families,
and one dark secret…
And you get a highly entertaining, laugh-out-loud Rom-Com!

I should warn you that there’s a cliffhanger, and two more books in this completed series.

Side Note: The use of cutesy nicknames for genitalia was equal parts amusing and distracting… It took me a while to wrap my head around the tone of this book, but once I did, it was easy to sit back and let things roll…
Some of the highlights:
meatflaps,
pleasure pumpkin,
pink petunia…

Caleb has wanted Paige for as long as he can remember, but there’s a reason he’s always kept his distance. Wolves can’t mate with humans. Worse, he can sense her intense hunger for him, even though he knows that he can never give her what she wants, or needs. But when Paige is kidnapped by a powerful enemy, Caleb has no choice but to go after her even if it means risking it all.

* Better Mate Than Never is a new adult werewolf romance that contains sexual content, coarse language and mature subject matter. For adults only.

Star_full48Star_full48Star_full48

This was a sweet little “I want you but I can’t have you” story between an Alpha-Male Werewolf and a curvaceous redheaded lawyer.


It was a decent short story, even if the ending was a bit rushed and anticlimactic.

I liked that the heroine, Paige, was a strong character; she didn’t cower and had a good head on her shoulders. Caleb was a sexy Alpha, his dirty talk was top shelf. When the two came together it was steamy and passionate. Since they had known each other since they were in high school, the attachment didn’t seem rushed or improbable.

It would have benefitted from an editor – in addition to the little mistakes which permitted the work, there was a moment when Caleb’s eyes were blue instead of brown/gold. It had several silly but distracting mistakes like that.

Julia has never been on a date in her life. She’s a curvy girl with no money, no education, and no way out of the town she works in as a library assistant… until Damien shows up. He’s just like the prince charming Julia always imagined would sweep her off of her feet. There are just a few things standing in the way of true happiness: he’s blind, he’s dating someone, and he’s WAY out of her league.

Oh, and he’s a werewolf.

Damien lost his eyes two years ago in a wolf battle. Ever since then, the straggler pack of disabled wolves he leads has been searching for a place to call home. One house seems like the perfect choice, but Damien realizes too late that the person who lives there is the girl he met at the library. The human girl. Damien is torn between loyalty to his pack and raw lusting desire for the girl who haunts his dreams day and night.

She’s a human. How could she be his true mate?

Star_full48Star_full48Star_full48

This was a sweet little BBW romance between a shy librarian and a blind WereWolf. It was cute, even if it was a little angsty at times. A merry band of misfits.


I don’t mind BBW romances when the heroine owns her body image, but Julia didn’t have an ounce of self worth. It was kind of cringe worthy to be honest. Our Big Bad Wolf Damien wasn’t much better… he had a lot of self loathing and he wasn’t the confident, dominate Alpha male I thought he should have been.

There were a ton of unanswered questions, but I’m not sure this book was really awesome enough to send me out reading the rest of the series.

Life sucks… And then you get turned into a werelion…

Curvaceous, blonde bombshell Maya Josephs is looking for a little action to take her mind off of her recent break-up. Crazy werecats or not, an evening at Genesis is exactly what she needs. And when she meets the hotter than hot, super-sexy owner, Alex O’Connell, the alpha lion shifter is just the man to fit the bill for a one-night stand.

Dumped like a rotting piece of meat by her ex, Maya is on the prowl, fixin’ to do whatever it takes to get herself a piece of the gorgeous furball. Besides, what’s the harm in a girl having a little bit of fun?

Star_full48Star_full48Star_full48Star_full48

I read this book as part of the Shifter Romance Boxed Set. This was an unapologetic hilarious read. It was sexy and silly and never took itself seriously. There was rude language, WereLions, tons of sex, and one seriously sassy plus-sized woman.

“You ass-sniffing, butt crack licking, litter box-using fuckhole!”

There was not a lot of romance, though it is technically a paranormal-romance… I’d say it was more of a Sexy Shape-Shifter Comedy. I like it for what it was. If you’re looking for substance and romance… this is probably not for you. But if you need an amusing and unique read for an evening, go pick it up! It was short, and you can buy it was part of a 99¢ Boxed Set with ten other stories, so I say Go for it!

It was a short, fun, erotic read.

“I came to you because I had to have you. I had to possess you. But I’ve stayed with you because I need you.”

Curvy city girl Abby Clumm wouldn’t normally travel to remote cabins in Alaska alone. But thanks to a poorly timed air traffic controllers’ strike, she finds herself alone in the boonies. As night falls, a shotgun she doesn’t know how to use and a flimsy wooden door are the only things standing between her and the vicious, hungry beast outside.

The scent of a woman nearby beckons research scientist Tarik Evert, sends him staggering outside into the cold. He doesn’t remember how he wound up at her door, naked and shivering. And he’s not sure what is about to happen if she lets him inside. He only knows one thing—the fierce, unrelenting hunger that brought him to her in the first place.

And that’s just the beginning of their troubles…

Star_full48Star_full48Star_full48

I read this book as part of the Shifter Romance Boxed Set. I really liked the fresh explanation of how Tarik Evert became a WereBear. There were several steamy sex scenes and some lovely pillow talk, but other than that it was kind of a bust.

The heroine Abby Clumm is kind of ridiculous, she invites a strange naked man into her cabin…


She is fairly unfazed by discovering he can turn into a bear, and is far less afraid of teaming up with her sexy WereBear to outrun a shady group of scientists, than she is about the possibility of having a long-term relationship…
