Being bad never felt so good…

After being jilted by her former master, Jane Porter looks to end her year-long celibacy by attending a bondage-themed event. Thanks to her ex-boyfriend’s stunning betrayal, she isn’t looking for happily-ever-after, just a master who’s willing to explore the depths of her passion and teach her what the BDSM lifestyle is all about.

Seducing Jane Porter was an unexpected surprise.

This book was recommended to me by another book blogger. As always, I will usually read any received / requested books within 48 hours give or take.

You have several different categories that erotica books can fall into. Too innocent. Too bold (Is there such a thing, really?). Too pathetic. Just too .. boring.

Seducing Jane Porter is none of the above. This novel is surrounded by some interesting characters wrapped in pretty packaging filled with cla
Basically the author took a book, gave you the first 3rd free (which kindle does anyway) and then charged you around $2.50 for the second third and the final third of the book. So you pay $5 and have to stop and download the whole thing.

But my 2 stars is based on this tiny part as a book- which is how it is packaged. As a book, it lacks. If she put all 3 together it may be worthy of more stars. If the characters were well developed, the plot thick and complete, the tension palatable and enticin

I actually didn't mind this book simply because it showed positive D/s dynamic for a change. Which makes me happy.

Yes, the love scenes were a bit purpley and made me snigger a little, but the kinky aspects were hot.

I might check out the later books in the series, but this was fun little read.

I mean this was not a deep novel, but not all porn needs to be deep. I also don't think this book is serious literature, but I take it for what it is.

Good freebie from Amazon

God how many times had I promised myself not to buy into these short stories that leave you hanging and having to purchase the next 4 or 5 for 2.99$ each:(

This was hot...point blank. It's starts with Jane, a submissive, falling for her master.
Just when she thinks that their relationship will escalate to another level, marriage, he tells her that he's married and had kids. With a broken heart Jane leaves and decides to take a hiatus from sex and the world o

First in the Jane Porter series

2 stars

Jane Porter has been celibate for a year. After finding out that her former master was married and attacked her she vowed to prove him wrong. She attends a party for the very rich man Antonio Villareal. Meh. It wasn't bad, but to be honest I was expecting a lot more. I thought I would get something hot or maybe even entertaining. I don't know what I was hoping to get from reading Jane Porter but I wasn't blown away. I w

Free Kindle download.

The book was not at all what I expected. I'm a fan of Anne Cain's cover art, and the cover and title for this book had me expecting something fun, light, and kind of sweet, with a strong heroine's point of view. I think perhaps the art direction that they gave Anne might have been a little misleading. Her covers are perfect for the type of book I like to read —subtle, deeply textured, evocative, and almost magical. The book, on the other hand, was all bare skin and kinky cas

Grabbed this for free for my kindle. The first book I have ever read with a BDSM type theme. It was pretty hot, but I gotta tell ya, for this kind of book there was way to much set up. It was probably 40% of the way through before there was even a whiff of sexual tension, let alone any getting it on. Don't get me wrong, I like some strong character development in my erotica, when done well it just makes it all that much better, but I am not sure this was done well. And it ended w/o any resolutio ...more

The initial short story in a series. A free read and a cute little literary morsel. Jane has been without any romance in her life for a year now, recovering from a very damaging affair with what turned out to be a married man. She was completely blindsided by this unprincipled person--she usually has been very good at spotting those jerks--and now she is attending a party as her first foray back into the dating scene. She encounters a man who will turn out to be very important in her life--littl ...more
Got as a freebie on kindle .. Very short.. Book was just ok.. No urge to buy the rest of the series... If they were free maybe .. It was written well but that was its only saving grace
Hot for being a short story. It definitely hangs on a cliff with foreshadowing to a threesome with Antonio's friend Santos. Pretty hot! :) And no one argues with free!

I really enjoyed this first story into the Jane Porter world but unfortunately as much as the story and characters grabbed me, I will not pay $7 for a book that isn't even 200 pages to finish the whole series. I would've purchased the rest of them if they were $.99 but with each of the next installments ranking in over $2.50 and under 100 pages, I won't do it. Too many things to read and not enough money to put out that much for an incomplete book. The only other bad thing with this read is that ...more

ok the length of this story combined with the last paragraph is an insult to the intelligence of the reader. All the jane porter stories together would still not fill one book, so the idea of selling them as different works, and finishing the book after 67 pagees (50 of which were the most boring intro ever) by saying

"Are you on the edge of your seat? Are you dying to know what happens to our happy couples? Stay tuned for our next installment, educating jane porter"

Just when I thought that I was too picky for erotica, I find this gem. Now, it's been sitting in my Nook for a while and I finally decided to read it. I definitely liked it. Lots of sex by different couples which totally worked for me.

My biggest beef and why I should really give this a 3 star (but I'm feeling generous) is that this is a serial and it's extremely short. There was no indication that this was a serial when I first started reading. I hate serials in general, but can accept them if t

Jane wurde in ihrer letzten Beziehung sehr schlimm hintergangen. Gerade in einer BDSM Beziehung in der es auf Vertrauen ankommt, ist das besonders hart. Ein Jahr lang lebt sie daher ohne einen neuen Mann. Auf einer Party trifft sie dann auf Antonio, ein spanischer Dominanter. Kann sie sich auf ihn einlassen?

For a free short story with a bondage party type of theme, I expected more. I wanted the author to make me feel like I was there, but it didn’t happen.

Jane Porter was a sub who was betrayed by her former Master when she found out he was married. I was glad that she made a stand and left him instead of being his mistress/submissive. You go girl! After that she basically tortures (my use of word) herself into celibacy for an entire year! She plans and attends a party in which she hopes to find he

I have read some erotica in my time but this one is more than I am used to. Jane is a vulnerable woman who likes to be a submissive that has been hurt in a past relationship. She has been celibate for a year and is going to change that when she attends a S & M party that her business partner helped organize.

It is very interesting to read how sex and pleasure plays a part in some peoples completion. Jane needs to be a submissive and needs to find a strong partner that can satisfy and take car
Sex was kind of exciting but really others who rated this are right it's not really a story just the beginning. It has potential for a good story and I might finish the series but it is irksome to find it's just a sample really.

This is a bondage romance story. Jane hasn't had a fling in a year and goes to this bondage party hoping to end her celibacy of a year. She meets a man that shows her passion again. This was a short read for me.
I liked the book but was a bit disappointed to discover it was a serial and not a novel. I need to pay more attention when I read descriptions so that I am not surprised when the story just ends abruptly.

Short and dangerous

Very nice and spicy introduction to Jane Porter's world. Well thought out main characters and the villain is in place. Look forward to book 2.

Since the four "books" in this series(Seducing JP, Educating JP, Reinventing JP and Hot for Teacher) are actually short stories that combine to form no more than one real book, I am basing my review on the series as a whole.

While there are certainly erotic scenes throughout the books - the first encounter between Jane and Antonio is probably my favorite - the series loses any significant BDSM flavor pretty early on.

Generally okay(with the exception of Hot for Teacher which I considered so weak t

I feel that this book had some extremely pleasing part and yet lacked in other areas.

Some things I enjoyed like that the storyline was great to start off and the spelling and grammer was well done. I also liked the main character Jane and her friend who both have sarcastic and spunky additudes.

I dislike the ending because it felt like an incomplete chapter. But I feel this was one of the only lackings that bothered me. I hope that the next book doesn't have a similar problem.

Jane hasn't had sex in a year and now she is ready to get back into the game after midnight...and not a second before. I personally thought the book was fine. Guy sees girl across the room and wants girl. My only problem is that this is such a short book with multiple parts. Short doesn't bother me it is having to buy those short parts for $3 a piece. I know authors need to make money, however not that amount for less than 100 pages. This first one was free so I don't regret reading it but if I ...more

This is an incomplete book. It ends with a statement that if you want more, you should buy Educating Jane Porter. Not a bad marketing tool, but this leaves you empty if you were expecting a complete book.

Overall, it shows good promise. The writing is good, and I think the next parts could come together to make a good story, but as a stand-alone book, this is not that great.
Christina Montminy
was a very short book, one of those that leave you hanging after 4-5 chapters to go to the next book. It was a pretty quick read & it was not bad, my only complaint is that the lead female character was a little unbelievable in her sexual exploits....too many at one time & the male leads well cocky just doesn't express them enough. Similar story to a lot of the bdsm out now guy sees a woman he wants goes after her, catches her easily & then brings friend in.
J. Libby
Not actually a book. This is a couple of chapters of a book that is being stretched into individual installments for unknown reasons. It may have potential, I will never know because I dislike WiP's and will not be finishing the series. There's some interesting set-ups and introductions: Jane's business partner and the man she's tormenting, for example, but I didn't find Jane or the male lead (whose name I forget) very interesting at all.

Okay, it's more than three pages, but not by much. I downloaded this for free from Amazon for my Kindle. I'm sorry I didn't pay more attention to the reviews on Amazon, I won't be purchasing any more romantic "freebies" unless I pay attention to what I'm really going to be getting which is a very short PART of a short novel.

On another note, this story was forgettable for me. I am glad I didn't waste my money.

I've read some erotic stories, and I believe this is a well written one, since it does not go overboard like some do. It keeps you reading, wanting to know what's going to happen next, which is always good. I did not like is the characters' stereotypes; we have Antonio who is latin, muscular,and then Jane, who is blond, curvy, and all the descriptions one might think of--like I said: stereotypical. But other than that, is a good story.
