Dee Tenorio: Wanting So Much It Hurts
Have you ever wanted something out of your reach? Completely out of your control? It's a strange feeling, I have to admit. Longing for a miasmic something, even when you know deep in your heart that the experience of having it will be completely  different than what you imagine. Still, you want. You yearn. And your heart breaks a tiny bit very day that you have to accept it isn't going to happen.

“Seduction” by Nicole Edwards (ebook)
I read this book because of a conversation on Twitter and a specific recommendation for this author. This was a cute, erotic romance about a woman returning home and getting involved with the man she has lusted after for years. I definitely enjoyed this story and am considering reading some additional titles by this author.

 

“Sweetened with a Kiss” by Lexxi Callahan (ebook, review copy)
I highly recommend this contemporary author. See full review.

 

“Hers to Command” by Patricia A. Knight (ebook)
This book reminded me a great deal of Lora Leigh’s Wizard Twins books – a book where a committed ménage (although in this case the committed group is m/m/f rather than m/f/m) can help produce enhanced magic to save their planet. The planet is actually sentient and plays a role in the romance. I enjoyed it, but found the world building to be a bit too convoluted.

“Under the Dom’s Thrall” by Jorja Lovett (ebook)
This was a free read. It is an erotic, BDSM story. It is very short (as advertised). It was a quick read. I didn’t expect the paranormal angle though.

 

“Worthy of a Billionaire’s Attention” by Krista Lakes (ebook)
This erotic, BDSM romance featuring two characters who used to be lovers. I enjoyed the relationship between the hero and the heroine and wanted to continue reading about these two. However, I wasn’t up for finding out if this was a serial or not.

 

“Reclaiming His Submissive” by Eliza Gayle (ebook)
When Harper tells her master that she loves him, he doesn’t respond. Harper believes the relationship is over. However, Alex isn’t about to let her go. This is a short erotic romance. I very much enjoyed it.
