One Bite With A Stranger (The Others #1)
When Regina’s friends insist on setting her up a “Fantasy Fix” to help her get over her cheating ex, she dreams up some kinky out-of-this-world encounters that they could never possibly bring to life. But the next thing Regina knows, her friends have got her laced into a shiny black corset, tight leather pants, and a sexy pair of stilettos. It’s time for some downtown va
With so many reasons why it was an epic fail… I shall refrain from listing it all, in case I once again end up in a bitching tirade, wondering “who publishes such crap?!”
The story starts with Regina and her friends from the Upper East Side Manhattan (very reminiscent of Sex in the City) playing a party game called “fantasy fix”.
Normally, I would have considered the name of the game as a warning enough… as a big red sign flashing “Caution do not proceed!” but et ...more
Still it was a fast entertaining read and I enjoyed it. Nothing very memorable but not bad. What I liked the most about it was ...more
Second read July 2016 ( review before reading sequel)
… Now I remember why I did not continue with the series. Yes, it seems like everyone else loves this. The degree to which Reggie's friends bullied her into the fantasy fix, there by bullying her into bed with someone when she really didn't want to was really uncomfortable--even though it was just supposed to be snarky and funny, the sexual coercion just wasn't funny to me.
Regina and her buds were drunk when they came up with 'Fantasy Fix'--where each of them puts their heads and acquaintances together in an effort to fulfill the fantasies of one of their number. ...more
At any rate the female lead is typically 'strong' for this type of story; meaning that she's got a good head on her shoulders and is firmly established in her own right until the first hint of the male lead ...more
Its starts off with Regina's friends telling her she should participate in the "fantasy fix" which basically means she has to pawn herself off to some random dude and have kinky sex w ...more
To be perfectly honest, I skipped most of Regina/Dmitri first encounter (which took about 1/3 of the book!!!) because of the boring factor. I almost fell asleep, so it was either that or not finish this story at all, which I hate doing. I'm also kind of interested in a few others books in the series, so I decided to gi ...more
Let's start with Reggie, the supposed heroine. She's supposedly this independent "modern feminist" but it turns out she likes a bit of the kink. This, in itself, isn't exactly bad. What is bad is how contradictory ...more

I was actually looking to do a reread when I found out the Fixed series was being rewritten and added to The Others series. I was surprised but I bought book one again and started to read.
At first it was pretty much exactly like the original book but then things started to change and honestly? There is one part of the book where I know something else happened in ...more
In a change of pace from her other books (which I flip through poorly written backstory until I find dialouge or smut), I actually found myself skipping past the sex in hopes that I'd find some ...more
I would like to say that I'm sorry.
I'm sorry that I ever picked up this book.
And I'm sorry for the rant there is to come.
So the story... sigh...
Regina is your everyday woman who has just ended a relationsip because the man cheated on her. Her friends and her have this game "fantasy fix", where each time one of them will write down five fantasies and one will be chosen and the others must make it come true. Of course when it's Regina's turn she's not up for it since she just ...more

The storyline was intriguing just poorly executed. A group of girl friends decide to create a Fantasy Fix. Each member writes down their top 5 (?) secret sexual fantasies, then they take turns drawing out of a hat to see which fantasy that girl will fullfill with the help of ...more

What sort of dead do you usually date?”
“Help,” she whispered, a small smile curving her lips while lust darkened his eyes. “I think I’m about to be ravished by a wicked vampire. Help. Somebody please help me.”
“There is no one to hear your screams, girl.” He grinned at her, wicked and sexy, while he forced her legs wide apart and crawled between them. “I have you at my mercy.”
“And will you be merciful?” Her question made it clear mercy was the last thing she wanted. She reached out to trace a line down the center of his chest before she wrapped her hand around his erect cock.
“Not even if you beg, milka.”
