I know a lot of people really love this story, and while the premise was good, I felt that the amount of gratuitous sex overshadowed the potential there was for a great story, and that's is a must for me, even in books deemed "guilty pleasures."

This is another hot, fun read from Emma Holly!
I didn't like this one as much as Demon's Fire, but hey, beggars cant be choosers ;)

This is a story about a girl named Zoe that can see dead people. And Fairies. She has been able to see them since she was a kid. Everyone thought she was weird except Alex. He loved her for who she was... then he left, in the midst of scandal, and she was devastated.

Years later, she has her own "psychic shop" where she communes with the dead. Her landlord Magnus, i
Holy Cow. This is why I love Emma Holly. This book had an element of fantasy in it (no, not in the sexual way) with fairies and the mystical. Usually I don't love that aspect as much as the vampire/paranormal (yes, there is a difference in my head) but this didn't interfere with some of the hottest sex scenes I have read in awhile!

Consider yourself warned: there is a threesome scene as well as some hot guy on guy action. And more than just in passing. There are a number of detailed scenes and a
The is paranormal erotica, so if that's not your thing, stop reading now.

Emma Holly is gifted when it comes to writing erotica. The back story was pretty good, and the sex scenes were very entertaining. There's nothing vanilla about this book. Premise: Zoe is a medium and lives in a town called Fairyville in the southwest. There's folklore surounding the town and "psychic" experiences, which the townsfolk have capitalized on, Zoe included. She's secretly in love with her friend and manager, Magn

I really couldn't bring myself to appreciate this book because I simply disliked Magnus too much.

Bryan, Alex, and Zoe were enough (more than enough, lol), and the plot was engaging.

But the here would come Magnus again...
I just didn't like that dude, some of his practices were morally dubious or outright creepy. And they were that much more gross considering how great all the other characters were...

Oh, well...
This is one of those you just have to read and see if it's for you or not.
Zoe Clare talks to dead people... and fairies. Communicating for the dead to the living in Fairyville, Arizona might seem a bit eccentric but she's certainly not the only oddball in town. Her manager—the man she wishes was her own—is a bit quirky too. Magnus Monroe has a lot of secrets, deepest of which is why he can't be more than just friends with Zoe. Bedding a new lady every full moon is the only way to maintain his residence in Fairyville and stay close to her.

When her high school flame an
I loved the storyline. I wanted more of the plot. I kept hoping for more... But I felt in the end it was more about the sex instead of the story. Yeah I know it is an erotica but still it had the potential to be an off the wall paranormal. Don't get me wrong I loved all of the Emma Holly books I have read in the past. I just felt this one could have been GREAT. The other side of Fairy wasn't even touched on. I was a little disapointed.
The books is about Zoe Clare a special medium who sees ghosts

Recommends it for: no one
ohmigod... crap. Not sexy. Not interesting. And not even trashy enough to be mildly engaging in the ugh-car-accident-horrified-can't-look-away way.

Not even the promise of boysmut or threesomes was enough to save this for me. "Arrogant, uber-sexed, irresistable fey" is a cliche that just turns me off. Not to mention the author bit off way more than she could chew... too many plotlines poorly reconciled, imho. She should have stuck with Mr. Denial and his lady-obsession and all the ways they could

Ok, but I wouldn't recommend it unless a reader is eager for a lot of erotic men with men scenes.

The author gives us an interesting view of fairies living in the human world both by choice and also as changelings (babies switched at birth). The story and characters were ok, but I wasn't drawn to them the way I would have liked. One should read this for the sex, not for the story.

Zoe is human and loves Magnus. She doesn't know he is a fairy. He must have frequent sex with other women
3.5 stars for plot and 5 stars for erotic & romance.

To be fair, the plot was decent so if you're looking for a "distraction" book for gym or destressing, this is it. Be warned, it's hot, steamy, sensual, erotic and romantic! I loved the dialogue, the characters and heartfelt storyline.

Sweet Zoe loved her sweet-kind manager-advisor-landlord, Magnus, for the last two years. To make things worst, once a month, she'd hear stories of different bedmates and the raunching time they'd shared. What s

This was the first book I´ve ever read by Emma Holly and I´m still undecided if Ishould give it a three or four stars rating. I tend to give a 3,5 but since this isn´t possible (yet) and I´m in a good mood and feeling generous today I give it 4 stars! There were some storylines I wasn´t really very fond of (and that was not the m/m –sex) and there were storylines who made my heart sore. First I thought, oh no, not again such a novel with not much plot but much sex but then the more I read the mo ...more
Fairyville is a weird town.

Zoe Clare is a medium that has a small shop where she helps people get in touch with their loved ones. She has a mad crush on her manager Magnus but can't get him to notice her and she hates that he takes a new lover every full moon and never choses her. Truth is he wants her but can't have her because he is Fey and can't tell her the truth of his situation in her world.

Then her old boyfriend Alex comes back to town and brings with him his PI partner Bryan to investi
This book wasn't good and wasn't bad. Just blahhhhhh. It had potential but never got good. I don't know what to say. It should have been good, but it just wasn't. There were some funny phrases that made me laugh when it probably shouldn't have, lol. Example : talking about how "my pussy has been pummeled", lol. Doesn't sound to fun to me. The thought of someones lady bits getting "Pummeled" just doesn't sound like a pleasant experience.

I have heard that Emma Holly's other books are very good so
This was very enjoyable, I loved the story and writing!

I was surprised at the explicit M/M sex tho ... lots of sexy/erotic paranormals out there, but this is the first paranormal with such graphic M/M sex *blush*.

It did fit in with the plot and the entire book was one of the better written books I've read lately. I kept hoping for a sequel as I read ...

So if very erotic sex is not your cup of tea, be forewarned!

Emma Holly brings out the extremes in me - I tend to either love it or hate it. This is definitely one of the loves - if you could imagine Jennifer Crusie writing an erotic, this is it. Wacky, Tinkerbelle style fairies, a psychic that talks to dead people, old lovers, new lovers, [sometimes both at the same time:], and let's not forget changeling babies and the psycho Queen of the Fey...this book melds them all together with a fine and humorous hand. If m/m and multiple-partner sex bothers you - ...more

I really liked this book. It was nice to read something a little different as in the hero being Fairy. Don't think I have come across another title yet that involved 6ft5 hunky fairy men. LOL. The story consists of a main story involving m/f and a side story consisting of m/m. I liked both sets of "heroes" and how they all come together into one main story. I however felt the ending was a little sloppy and rushed but I still enjoyed it nonetheless.

A super hot read.

The plot was thin, and more than a little far-fetched (even for a paranormal erotica novel), but it was easy to overlook the negatives because of how incredibly well Emma Holly does hot and steamy. The sex scenes are intense, plentiful, and about as far away from straight vanilla as you can get.

Will definitely be reading more from this author.

Well where do you start on a book like this? I innocently borrowed this book from the library to take with me to the hospital whilst I recovered from major surgery. My goodness did it keep me enthrall enough for me to wish away visitors so I could get back to the book that was just pulsating with raw and pure lustiful sex! Not really reading anything before starting my jaw hit the floor after the first chapter, and then I was hooked!
I believe a good book isn't neccisarrily dictated on words, st
How very disappointing, I didn't really enjoy this book. I found that the very little story line was weak and predictable and felt it was very much like watching a porno! I didnt really get the characters and really struggled to finish it.
Now I know why they call Emma Holly the queen of paranormal erotica. I always seem to try to guess what happens next in a book because it can be predictable....not this one..

This was a funny tale which all I remember was the sex. M/M, M/M/F - it's all good. Erotic and sexy I enjoyed the two men fighting for Zoe. Quick and fast read.
Fairyville was the first Emma Holly book I read and I was hooked. I enjoyed the idea of this town in AZ that is into the mystical tourist trade but also sits on the magical border with the Mageverse. You have all of this overlap of magical beings playing at being human. In this case, two of these folks have the hots for Zoe. She's a mystical human in that she hears dead people and sees fairies. She has the hots for the new guy in town who also has the hots for her but he can only sleep with a wo ...more

Ok Fairyville all the characters was great love how they stand by themself but also be grouped and ur not getting bored with them. Of course there are Fairies in the story but I don't want to give everything way. Even though there was some sex sence I could live with out I couldn't stop read and that what I like about Emma Holly she makes u love the characters that u want to know what next, will they get what the deserve...

I enjoyed this book it was the first one I've ever read by this author. If I had to say one bad thing about this book though it would have been that the back didn't indicate that there would be a homosexual relationship between Alex and his work partner Bryan. And yet it is the first sex scene she describes in the book. This however didn't bother me I found myself loving the book and Alex and Bryan as much As Zoe and Magnus. Though I'd have liked to know before hand that it had MM because this w ...more
I love each of the characters in this books, but felt that the plot, though interesting as a whole was stretched a bit thin to elongate the book. Like all of Emma's erotica I reread it until the bindings crack...the woman writes great sex...really great sex. Zoe, a psychic who is protected by fairies (the little ones) and Magnus, a big fairy disguised as a human, make a smokin' couple. But the real karisma happens between Alex and Bryan - college friends who started a PI firm. Their relationship ...more

"Fairyville" presents itself as a romance novel with erotic undertones. However what you get borders on the cusp of homoerotic smut. While I have no problem with homosexuality, I did not expect this book to be riddle with more homoerotic scenes than heterosexual ones. The product description for this book mentioned nothing of the relationship between Alex and Bryan, yet their story is as prominent (if not more so) than the supposed feature story. I must admit that I am not the biggest Emma Holly ...more
I didn't realize this book was full blown erotica when I got it from Paperback Swap. Imagine my surprise upon the first slash scene! It's your typical smut story, loads of sex - M/M scenes, multiple partners, yada-yada-yada. The sort of plot was initially fun, but quickly took a back burner to the sex. I found myself skimming the sex scenes so I could return to the plot, but in the end, the plot wasn't worth the effort. My biggest issue with the story: the "hero" putting a spell on the human hal ...more
