The Fetish Box: Open All Night is a short read. It's about a young girl, Mary, who was raised by her grandmother. She did not know her mother, and her father wasn't around that much. After finding out her mother had passed, she was left multiple things in her Will, including The Fetish Box....a sex store.

The intro was great, I loved being inside Mary's mind and hearing about her past. I loved the description of her mums house and

Yeah.... this book didn't do it for me.

When I saw this book on NetGalley I thought that it sounded like a fun, hot read. It was not. Not even a little bit.

The book is about a 22 year old virgin who inherits her estranged mom's sex shop when she dies. From the get go, the book came across as poorly written but I decided to go with it with the idea that hot sex and good chemistry would follow. Instead, the book was almost comically bad with the strangest initial sexual encounter that I have ever r

*ARC courtesy of NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

This book is fraud in my opinion. When you see the cover and read the name you have certain expectations... It feels like the author is trying realllly hard to write an erotica, but clear that she herself has never experienced any such thing. Everything was so forced!


Okay, we also need to address the need to publish this in installments... 200 pages hardly constitutes one book, installment or otherwise. Nothing actually happened! It wa

Okay I nearly stopped reading this book at 18% when a stranger who's just introduced himself to the main character (Mary - who happens to be a virgin!!), goes up grabs her, kisses and fondles her breasts.......... Call me odd but I'd kick him in the balls and slap him, regardless of how hot he is.

I carried on anyway and it did improve sort of, Max the gropper stays in the story, we also have John, who I have to say I rather liked him, even so what he propositions her with over lunch was

I'm not the most knowledgeable reviewer when it comes to Erotica. But I know what I like and I know what's crap. The Fetish Box may not be crap but I think it would be safe to say that it is a perfect example of a marketing ploy that ruined a book.

Let me give you a quick review of the book and then we'll discuss my huge problem with it. After reading the blurb, you'll know that Mary is 3 things: 22 years old, virginal, and has recently inherited a sex shop. Already I'm making my "Yeah, right" fa

I probably had much higher expectations for this novella than I should've going in, but I'll be honest. I feel terrible about not liking "Open All Night" - the first part in a serial story called "The Fetish Box" by Nicole Camden. Not only did the cover seem very pretty (the half melted candle was a nice touch alongside the font), I was interested in seeing what directions a woman owning a sex shop would promote. Seemed like it would offer a combination of an atmospheric and character driven rea ...more

This is a case of a good premise done dully.

Mary, a virginal twenty-two-year-old, discovers that her long-estranged mother has died and left Mary her business, which happens to be a sex toy shop in Florida. Mary heads down, moving into her mother's - now Mary's - home.

Before you can say, "Id like a flogger, please," Mary has bedded one man, kissed another, and soon beds two in one day.

Let's backtrack for a moment. She SHOWED UP A VIRGIN, y'all. That Florida sun can work a number on you, no doubt

This is a first installment (of how many I still don't know) for a shallow story of a 21 year old virgin - REALLY, another? - that inherits a SEX SHOP from a mother she has never seen!! Again, really?
So, on her first day meeting neigbourghs and such, she lusts and drolls over a scarred man - nothing against hot scarred man, I'm just against the hurry - let another one almost have her against the kitchen wall. She accepts the invitation for BDSM sex and goes to a bar with the scarred man, who wil

The Fetish Box was an interested read, that's for sure.

3.5 Stars!

I recieved The Fetish Box as an ARC in exchange for my review and I'm going to be completely honest. This wasn't the best book I have read.

The Fetish Box: Open All Night is about a young girl, Mary, who was raised by her very Christian like grandmother from Virginia. She grew up not knowing her mother, and her father wasn't around that much. Both her parents were young when they had her. After finding out her mother had passed on,

The blurb does a great job of summarizing the story, so I'll go directly to my opinion.

I enjoyed the characters in the story. I thought that they were interesting and fit the story nicely. Mary with her curiosity about sex and her innocent look made for an interesting heroine. Max, who exuded sexiness with every word spoken and John with his dark presence and tortured soul made a great pair of heroes perfectly suited to fulfill Mary's every desire.

The men pulled no punches and I liked

The heroine of The Fetish Box is Mary Duepree, the self-described “bastard consequence of an affair with a trashy whore from Florida” who was raised by her father’s mother while her father made cameo appearances throughout her childhood years.

A quick, fun and sexy read that left me hanging (UGH!) It’s really a good read that leaves the reader very curious as to what is to come and keeps you turning the pages until before you know it, you’re at the end and looking for much more! Erotic romance readers will without a doubt enjoy this first installment of the Fetish Box knowing there's more to come :)

There is a fine line between erotica and pornography and, unfortunately, this book frequently crosses it. Erotica contains sexual tension between the characters leading up to the actual act. In porn sex just happens, quickly and inexplicably, without any rhyme or reason. It's "Hi" and immediately jump into sex.

When the heroine, the 24 year old virgin Mary (really?), first meets one of the Heroes, Max, she immediately lets him suck on her breasts. A strange man, in her house, but he is cute and h

Looks like this is the trend going around. You get parts of a story instead of the whole thing. It makes the book seem incomplete but at the same time you crave for more.

Mary inherits her estrange mother's business and home. Its a very unique situation because this innocent young woman now owns a very popular sex store along with other businesses on the side. A pub and through the sex store a BDSM how to classes.

The Fetish Box is a novel that has been broken into several parts. This is a story of the virginal Mary Dupree, who inherits a sex shop among other things from a mother that she has never known. Despite, growing up in the south with her extremely strict grandmother, she is beginning to discover that something is awakened in her she never knew existed. Add the stoic, but handsome John along with the charming and hot Irishman Max and you have a recipe for a searing romance. Beware, this book is j ...more

I don't think this book was originally meant to be split up into three parts, so yes, it does not end at a very good part. However the author's writing skills and imagination are superb. If you are not a fan of waiting for the next installment, then just get over it and learn some patience. It's not the author's fault, it's the publishers. For a better example of Nicole Camden's writing go and read her short story, The Nekkid Truth, in Big Guns Out of Uniform. It's the best story in the book.

Mary has never met her mother and now she will never get the chance. Mary, through her mother’s estate becomes the owner of The Fetish Box, a well known Florida sex shop. The ironic thing is, Mary’s a virgin. Mary also inherits two business partners Max and Jon. Max is a confident man who will take his pleasure anywhere he can find it. Jon is more stoic and quiet, but still gets possessive.
The Fetish Box is a serialized novel and each piece is quite short. Worst part of all is part one

Poorly written 'erotica' about a 22 year old virgin who inherits her long-lost mother's sex shop and discovers her wild side.

I really could like this book if it were just a little longer. Don't get me wrong I know this is just the first book of the series but I would have liked more background on the men and Marys mother. Otherwise I believe the characters have potential and the storyline is a new concept for me (which I really like). The end of the first book left you with a cliffhanger that will bring you back for the next book so the author did her job well. Overall this is a quick easy read with potential.

I really enjoyed reading this short erotic book. I received a copy for my honest review, and I give it 4 stars. Mary is left a sex store from her dead mother that she never met, and moves away to live in her mothers house. She meets all the people who knew and loved her mother, including two men who catch her eye. I'm left wanting more after I finished the story and can't wait to read the next short read!

Mary, a virgin, moves cross country after inheriting a sex shop, bar, house and the friends from the mom she has never met. The characters are all likable, with their different personalities. Starting the second installment now to see about her night of "learning" and to hopefully learn more about the mother she never knew.
