I'm saying that right off because had I known it was part of a series, I wouldn't have read it. While looking for a quick erotica short on Amazon, I made a point in skipping over all stories that stated they were part of a series. I wanted something I could read quickly and then move on to another. Instead, I read this having no clue (because it's not mentioned in the title or the blurb) that it was the first story, again, in a series. That's one of my pet peeves - when it's not listed anywhere. It also stops at 86% and moves on to excerpts from the author's other books. While I'm not bothered by excerpts (though I don't read them), it was frustrating to think I still had 14% to read to get to a resolution with this couple for it to just... stop.
I am perfectly fine with books where an author comes back later down the road and decides to do a follow-up or add more to the story of the characters. My issue (again, a pet peeve) lies when an author writes a story and publishes it with the knowledge right then that more will come later and chooses to label it as a standalone. (hide spoiler)]
Paradise Found is about two people who are married to others but take off for a weekend affair. The blurb states it's about cheating, so no big deal. I knew it going in. While I thought the story was okay for the most part, I was a bit confused in regards to a couple of things. The blurb mentions the clothing optional party on the beach. At first, that part made a bit of sense, but it didn't take long before I was lost. One was totally into what was going on with the other folks and the other wasn't... yet that's the one who initiated everything to begin with.
The sex is hot and written extremely well. I love good erotica and the author delivered with Bruno and Karen. I wasn't a fan of Karen, however. She came across as a bit wishy washy, while Bruno was straight-forward. There were no questions with him. Would I be interested in seeing how this relationship plays out? Possibly. I'm curious to see what happens when they go back home to their families. ["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>...more

This is a nice story about two men - one a rocker, another a fan - who hook up and quickly develop feelings for each other. If you're a fan of major insta-love, you'll enjoy this. The sex is written well. I'm curious to see how things play out with these guys.

If you follow my reviews anywhere you know I'm a huge fan of this author. His horror and thrillers drew me in way back when and I've read so many of his books (horror and romance) that I lost count. Third Eye is classic Rick R. Reed.
Cayce D'Amico is hit by a fallen branch during a lightning storm and his world turns upside down. What starts with him looking for his lost son during a storm quickly turns into Cayce having visions of two kidnapped girls. The visions are so real that he knows he's not just imagining them. No one is willing to listen to him about what he sees. When he helps locate one of the missing girls, his name is made public and he becomes a target for two very disturbed individuals. When someone he is close to is brought into a very dangerous situation, Cayce must - with the help of a local reporter - do everything in his power to find the killers before they do the unimaginable to someone he loves.
The last chapter will have you rushing to read the pages quickly to see how everything will play out. While this can be classified as a romance in a sense, the romance doesn't take center. Great ending. Great book. Highly recommended....more
