In fear and terror for her life, Paediatrician, Dr. Claudia Ellers, is faced with the nightmare of abduction at gunpoint. Bradley, a gangster thug who has allegiance only to his shot friend, Sean, places Claudia in the situation of having to save his friend’s life, without proper medical resources or lose hers. Then know that when she has succeeded her life is of no further value, and her freedom to walk, talk and report this incidence will never be allowed. No win situation that shows well the adage of where there’s life there’s hope and how Claudia has to use her wits to survive. So, I downloaded this as a BDSM novel…and wondered where this story was going. The writer teases the reader as for a long time as a gradual attraction develops between Sean and Dr. Ellers; the damage from past childhoods of both people leading the reader to empathise with of both her main characters, then finally, awaiting some connection, perhaps BDSM linked as well as romance, maybe even a HEA, well…do read it, do be surprised at the ending, do feel pleased or annoyed. Realism or romantic idealism? Readers will find out. I will say this was nothing like I had expected, my respect for Julia Sykes’ story telling rose. Would I have read it knowing how it was going to pan out…probably not, yet it was as should be? I considered this for 3 and 4 stars and it is a good 3.5 more 4 star.

Later she peeks in his window and caught where her 'geek' turns the tables and becomes Sir and a short story becomes an erotic scene. This is limited to sexual activities and basic plot and characters. It is ideal for filling a coffee/lunch break story but lacks depth of characters or plot. I have rated it two star but the English and editing is readable so 2.5 not quite three.(less)

A story where the narrator experiences first time love and first time sex with Gus, friend now become lover. It is the narrators awareness of his journey of experiences and pleasure in encountering sex with someone of the same gender and his realisation that his friendship is in fact love that is the most endearing part of this story. Short, sweet erotica. Just three stars from me.(less)

Nit picking I know...but then the monster really is a monster with his gleaming red eyes, white haired, six or eight limbed with pincer claws, spidery creature with a long circular moist tongue that goes well down said throat and an enormous human male penis that produces enough semen to force her abdomen out and bathe her in it from head to toe, bit like a fire man's hose...oops forgot, it's as thick as the well muscled, farm girl's forearm and it takes her virginity, nothing been inside her so far bar a finger or two...no screams of agony or tearing flesh, but satisfaction and knowledge that it is right...but no specific orgasm, and that's a shame as she has waited many years saving herself from men for this encounter. I didn't find it erotic or sexy, but I give it two stars for the hilarity and decent English, and basic editing. Definitely not for me. Made me think the forced breeding with Minotaurs, Centaurs and Tree men should all go up a star...but no.(less)
