Shelves: erotic, futuristic
A complicated plot that was built in a world similar enough to our own to be believable but with dynamics and complexities unique enough to have the reader enchanted with the fantasy. This erotic and multilayered story will have you laughing, tearing up and fascinated all in one plot. Great story, and I will be looking for more of this author.

The Lottery was a sexy, emotional rollercoaster ride that left me in tears of joy.

Karlyn is a virgin, she is waiting for true love before she decides to have sex, but in a world where men are rare and only the richest are allowed to enjoy their presence, that dream is far from ever coming true.

Karlyn’s best friend Sam decides to buy her a birthday present in the form of a Lottery ticket. The ticket gives the holder a chance to win a young sexy man for a whole year to do with whatever she desires

Lena’s Review:

The year of men owning women and ruling the world is over. It is the year of women and men, which a rare treat in this world. Men are slaves to us, where us women can do anything we want with them. This is something that bugs the hell of Ethan Spears. For years he has been a slave to Ophelia Mack and he’s tired of it. To her he was only called a contract, not lover, not boyfriend but a contract. Now that he’s been blackballed by her, he is determined to not let any woman get under

TBR Reviewer: Harley

Ahh to be sent into the future and still have hot, steamy and completely erotic studs at your disposal! Now THAT’S what I’m talking about!! Ms. O’Hurley captivated my attention in the very first few pages of her erotic romance The Lottery. Starting out the book in just the right fashion, drooling over Ethan Spears (RAWR), was a helluva attention getter. A hundred or so years into the future you are sucked into the plot. The author does such a great job
Judy & Marianne from Long and Short Reviews
“For every one male, there are thirty plus females on this planet. Men are chattel, plain and simple”, used to serve women. When Karlyn Bowman took a lottery ticket for her birthday, which was against the law, to please a friend she did not think she would “win one calendar year with a hot, sexy, man toy.”

I will admit I was not sure if this was a story for me with an orgy and the whole male sex slave thing in the first chapter. However, I had to give the book a chance by reading a few more chap
Sensuality: 5 of 5
Kink: brief orgy scene, male prostitution, bdsm, alludes to other acts

I stumbled upon this ebook by accident. I think I was reading a blog and went to a site to look up another book and then clicked link for it on the side. Boy I am soooo glad I did. This was one of the most touching and heartwrenching erotica story I have read. It dealt was a topic I wasn't quite sure I would like, male prostitution. Now it was prettied up a little bit but over all it was gritty and you did ge

This is a good imagining of what the world would be like if the women outnumbered the men by 30 to 1. Men are basically reduced to slaves, as it’s no longer a male dominated society. Women are the breadwinner’s; men take the women’s name, should they marry. Ethan tries to do what he can to save his sister Bailey, who has brain cancer. Forced into sexual slavery, just to pay off their father’s debts, Ethan ends up being blacklisted by his last and cruelest mistress, Ophelia, when he walks out aft ...more

About me? How anyone can summarize their whole being within a little block of space is beyond me.

I have tried on numerous bio pages and what not and I hate making them. :)

So, let's just say I wear many hats. Mother, daughter, friend, writer, boss, employee, student, lover, and whatever else I may do within my day.

We all wear many hats within our lives, and most days we are stressed beyond words be
