A hot little book! Unlike a lot of other fiction of this type, 'The Cabin' actually had a story with some great characters. There was a great twist to the plot too. This debut author is one to watch. Highly recommended if you want a sexy-hot little read! Loved it! :)

That. Was. Freakin Awesome! What am amazing debut by this fab new author, I'm floored.

I admit I am a self-proclaimed romance/erotic book junkie. I've come to expect certain things when it comes to erotic Novellas, they are usually just quick hott romps without a lot of meat to the story or character depth. Well, this book blew that mold to hell. Don't get me wrong, it was definitely a hott romp right from the beginning (this woman sure knows how to start off with a BANG) but it was sooo much mo

Although I know this is a novella, it kind of ended abruptly at the end. I was expecting there to be a little bit more story, I was HOPING for it because Mia definitely needed the extra pages to redeem herself as a character. The lead up to finding out what huge secret she had was a bit redundant. I figured how much shame she carried around, how much fear of others finding out her secret, she must have murdered a person and then molested the corpse. Nope. No such thing. In my opinion, what she ...more

You may need to do a few things while reading this book.First would be finding a quiet place to read it. In the beginning,I was reading it with people around, and even though they couldn't read what I was reading, the book was so vivid that I felt as if my mind was projecting the images. I would also suggest turning on a fan to cool yourself down because this book will get you worked up! Thirdly would be a cold shower afterwards ; ).
This debut author has got it going on! The storyline had me pul

praises to Natalie Stark for being brave enough to tackle a subject that is in the real world. This book is a hot and steamy would sujest a quite secluded place to read. When I read the first book in the series I was in the livingroom,everyone looking at me as I blushed from what I was reading. No mystery to my husband though he knew what I was reading. This is a hot little book. A must read and,if this any clue as what to is coming in the future from Natalie Stark their will be more blushing in ...more
Good writing and lots of plot punched into this novella. Good twists I didn't see coming, and a few smexy times to. So why just 3 stars? I just didn't like the female character nor what she did. The first time was ok, but the second time, was wrong on so many levels.

This was a good short story. Mia married Nathan but was in love with Quinn. So the story follows Mia and her internal fight to give herself sexually to her Newly-Wed Husband, Nathan. On the night of their wedding, you find Mia looking for every excuse possible to not give herself to Nathan. Mia has scars on her back that she's ashamed of and she doesn't want to Nathan to see these yet and get scared they waited until there wedding night to have sex. Nathan gives in and understands that his wife ...more

I would call this a how-to book on dishonesty and secrecy in relationships. Basically all three protagonists suffer quite a bit because they don't talk to/aren't honest with each other. The sex scenes are fairly hot, but clouded by all the deception.

Oh, and this is the exact same book cover for Edge of Disaster, published earlier:

A great first novel from a new author. This book is going to split opinions. Why? Because the author has been brave enough to tackle real issues while writing an erotic book. I guess some people just aren't going to get it so therefore won't like it but this book is so clever on so many levels. Not only has the author written a great erotic novella the plot is good and the characters so real that it feels like you have read an entire novel by the time you reach the end of the book. The idea of ...more
Mia made a mistake on her eighteenth birthday with a priest and is punished for it, leaving marks on her body. She spends four years in mental anguish, until she marries Nathan, a good man. The irony of what happens on her honeymoon is an unexpected twist to the story but it ends, as it should after the one night Mia spent in The Cabin ~ Mia's Story without her husband??? The sex scenes were hot and steamy with the forbidden aspect to add extra spice; the writing gave an in deep look at Mia's fe ...more

1-1.5 stars

This was a rather blah short story. The premise was intriguing, but the writing felt very...meh. Like the author had their thesaurus next to their computer and tried to use as many different descriptive words during the love scenes as possible. Most of which were not at all sexy. Also, the 'taboo' aspect didn't really work for me. This was too short to have enough of a back story for me to buy the couple's relationship.

Color me disappointed in yet another attempt at erotic fiction.

Not what I thought. I didn't really like it. But mainly because it is not my genre of book. I thought I would try something different. The story is well written. The only thing that irritated me was the use of the word "arse". I know that is the correct word but I would have used buttocks or butt. Just my opinion. Other than that and the fact it just was not the type of book I read it was okay.

Lately I have been self-reflecting a bit. I recently decided my penchant for (view spoiler) However I am totally for it, so if you find some, let me know!

Despite my particular... love, I only found this okay. It might be just because it is so short. I also found it overly dramatic.

So there you have it.

Mia commits a sin by having sex with her priest; she is punished for it, and then spends the next few years in anguish. She meets Jonathan who falls in love with her but Mia’s heart belongs to another. They get married and are on their way to a honeymoon cabin where an unexpected visitor shows up. This story was just starting to get good at the end but then ends with more questions than answers.

Dark maybe? Gross yep! I don't get sleeping with the priest and cheating on your new husband to do it, just to realize the priest wants you as his nooky on the side(oh well to bad you got beat years ago because of me but I still sleep with you???)So now you'll come clean to the new hubs... Nah, no thanks!

This book was brilliant. At last an erotic short with a decent story and great characters. This author writes great hot scenes too! She also has the courage to write about situations and relationships others might find uncomfortable. A fantastic book! I'm a fan for life! I highly recommend.

Freebie so I thought why not?

But hmmmmmm. The sex was good but really? The plot incroixable ( je suis en France en ce moment ).

Sorry to Natalie, it takes guts to write and publish and who am I to criticise but it was a poor plot but on a positive, the writing wasn't bad.

Natalie has a secret but she has told no one. Nathan is someone she loves but not in love with. She still thinks of Quinn her first love.

This was a cute story and one that does keep you entertained. But it does leave you hanging as to what came of Mia and everyone ennobled.

I liked the forbidden story and how intrigued the prologue was. Although, the heroine's action was unacceptable, I didn't find her unlikeable.
It was a decent, short read.
