Her husband works out of town for long stretches of time so she has to go sometimes weeks without sex. Kara is always horny so this is a problem.
Kara has a habit of sunbathing topless when her daughter is not around, knowing the nineteen-year-old neighbor is watching from the window next door. When her daughter goes for a sleepover and the neighbor's father is away for the weekend, Kara decides to give the neighbor boy a show. What starts out with a little masturbation quickly turns into Kara teaching him (view spoiler)[a virgin (hide spoiler)] everything there is to know about pleasing a woman.
A nice, hot short. I've always loved stories with characters who have a substantial age difference so that was a big plus. The sex is hot and I liked both characters. However, as much as I enjoyed the story, it was in serious need of editing. There is very little punctuation and sentences ran together. Otherwise, a hot read.["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>(less)

It's graphic, both sexually and violently, and not for those looking for a romance or anything remotely sweet.
Joe, a truck driver, has just picked up Dana, with plans to have sex with her and then kill her. Joe has been picking up (and killing) women like Dana for a long time. Only, Dana isn't quite what he's expecting and she has plans of her own.
I totally loved it, though a lot won't. Don't read if violence bothers you.

I couldn't tell who was on his knees because one minute it was Chris and the next it was Brian (at the same time, I might add). The dialogue was just as confusing. There's also zero prep and bleeding ((view spoiler)[and double penetration - again, no prep (hide spoiler)]) but the 'assistant' had the time of his life? Yeah, I'm thinking not.
"I can taste Brian's veins, the sweat, the stink from my asshole - I can taste it all as Brian's breaths become short, and fast." <-I had to correct the spelling of two of those words.
Only ten pages but I almost DNF'd at 5.["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>(less)
What a great addition to the Senses series. As with the first two books, I found myself smiling a lot, on top of getting teary-eyed quite a bit. I adored Davey and his little boy ways. Greg is the perfect dad, who only wants to do right by his son. Tom just wants to be part of their little family.
Once again, I loved revisiting characters from the previous books. I look forward to the next in the series. I definitely hope to see more of Skip in the future.
Outstanding book. Highly recommended.

This is stated quite clearly in the blurb so I knew what I was going into before I downloaded it on my Kindle. The blurb almost tells the entire story, other than detailing the instances where Pervy Peeping Vic actually watches the tenants in his apartment building having sex via cameras he had installed for that purpose, and watches some outside of it later. I am not even rating in based on the fact that (view spoiler)[young, naked boys are mentioned a few times and there was a part when Vic, at around twelve, watched a priest masturbating to two young boys having sex on a video.... a part of the story that was totally unnecessary, other than to show that Vic - and the priest - are sickos (hide spoiler)]. I'm totally rating this on the fact that even though it was a quick freebie, the editing was so bad that I couldn't make heads or tails of what I was reading. When I have to read the same line again and again and again just to try to figure out what the author is saying, I have a problem. Thankfully it was a quickie or it would have been a DNF.
The story is what it is. Disturbing, but like I said, I expected that going in. I don't mind taboo and there's very little I won't read. However, had the author done a quick read-through before hitting publish (and removed what was in the spoiler), it might have been an okay read.["br"]>["br"]>(less)
I love books with kids in them, and in Spirit we have Timmy. I love humor. I started giggling on the first page and didn't stop until I got to the end. I'm a sucker for a good romance and we have that with Jason and Sam. If it has a ghost and a bit of mystery, I'm so there. It's hard finding a book that has all of that in it, so I really lucked out with Spirit. The fact that John Inman wrote it makes it that much better.
Timmy is staying with his Uncle Jason while his mother is gone on a four week vacation with her loser boyfriend. It doesn't take long after Timmy's arrival before weird things start happening at Jason's house. Throw in a surprise visit by Timmy's Uncle Sam (Timmy's father's brother) and a ghost in the basement, and things really start to get interesting.
If you can read about Timmy's antics and not laugh out loud, you don't have a sense of humor. He is a rambunctious bundle of energy who keeps his uncles on their toes.
Then there is the ghost, who only wants his story known.
If you're already a fan of John Inman's writing, you will love this. If you haven't read him yet, I highly recommend this.
A very entertaining read.

I love the premise of this story. Two men come together as the result of a wrong number. One is beautiful. One is scarred. It's like You've Got Mail and Beauty and the Beast rolled into one. It started off well and sucked me in. Unfortunately, it didn't take long for it to become redundant and more than a little frustrating. There is a slow build and then there are Riley and Cameron. I am all about the slow build up in relationships. But what I'm not all about is when it takes so long for almost anything to happen (view spoiler)[other than a bit of phone sex and sexy photos sent back and forth (hide spoiler)] that I feel like I'm reading page after page of the same thing.
I understand Riley's fear of making himself, and his scars, known to Cameron. I get that. Really. But while it came across as understandable early on, by the time I got to about 30% of the story I was saying 'We get it. You're scarred. You think you don't deserve him. Move on already.' Unfortunately, this was the entire book.
I did really enjoy (view spoiler)[the whopping two times! (hide spoiler)] when Riley and Cameron were actually together. The first time was actually quite beautiful and I found myself getting a little misty-eyed while reading it. The same applied to another part of the story. But to me, it just wasn't enough considering the length of the book.
But here lies my main problem with The Truth About Riley: I have a major pet peeve about books being part of a series and not being labeled as such. I'm not referring to when an author comes back later and decides to revisit characters. I'm referring to books like this one, where it's obvious by the comments made after THE END, that this was written with the intention of being first in a series. I felt cheated. I had just read 318 pages of back and forth hoping to see these two guys find their happily-ever-after, only for it to end at a critical moment and then a comment by the author to stay tuned for more of Riley and Cam's story.
As much as I would love to see what happens (view spoiler)[after they look into each other's eyes the first time (hide spoiler)] later, I can't see myself reading another book of this length to see where they go from here.
Nice story that could have been cut back drastically and would have been more enjoyable had the couple had more actual couple time.
Objects in the Rearview Mirror has so many things that drew me in. I am a huge fan of books with ghosts and things that go bump in the night. I am a sucker for a good romance and this definitely has that. What I didn't expect was to be sucked into a story so unique that I had a difficult time putting my Kindle down even for a little while.
The love story is beautiful, as two men have to battle the horrors of one's past in order to move on and be happy. Then there are the ghosts, one of which battled his own demons as a child. When both stories collide - both in the physical world and not - is when the past is brought back and must be faced head-on in order for everyone to find peace, whether it be in the living world or the afterlife.
I smiled. I shed a lot of tears. I even got creeped out quite a bit. In the end, I was so happy I read this.
An outstanding book.
F.E. Feeley, Jr. writes ghosts and romance well. I can't wait to see what he puts out next.
