Samantha has a serious crush on her roommate, Kara, but she has never dared to act on her fantasies. Until Valentine’s day, when Kara brings home her latest date, Daniel, and involves Sam into a naughty play, that obviously results in a more naughty night.

Scorching hot, affectionate, sweet erotic story about best friends becoming lovers.

Though Daniel was kind of a third wheel, he didn’t seem to mind.

That doesn’t mean he wasn’t participating, because he was. But the focus was on the two girls,

Super HOT erotic shortie about a best friend who finally gets her wish, all with the game of hearts. On Valentine’s Day, Sam’s roommate, Kara, brings home a meathead-hottie and a game of matching candy hearts. Rules are if you don’t get a match you have to take a piece of clothing off but if you win, you get to perform whatever the hearts says to do on a player of your choice. Sam takes this opportunity to show Kara just how much she’s wanted her, leading into a very interesting g

Scorching hot! I could end the review right here and that should be enough.

Kara...She is the kind of girl that inspires journal writing and day dreams. Day dreams of the sexy variety. The insane part is the dreaming is coming from the last place she would suspect. Honestly the dreamer is just as shocked. Her roommate Samantha (Sam).

Much like my favorite chocolate this short story is sinfully delicious! I have never described a book that way before, but those are the most appropriate words I can think of. The writing flowed from beginning to end, and it was just so realistic and totally possible. The cover (which I love) is what initially caught my attention, and the storyline itself sealed the deal for me. This book is not for the faint of heart, so beware if you can't handle all the hotness it encompasses. Be prepared wit ...more

I'll never look at candy hearts the same way. Typically my menage preference in books and novellas is 1 girl and 2 (or more) guys. That said, I quite enjoyed Heart You. This is a short novella, so there is not a lot of character and plot development. What it is, is one night, Valentine's Day, in the life of two female roommates who play a game with a one-night stand and adult-oriented candy hearts. As would be expected in erotica, the game leads to sex and the sex is hot! Ms. Folsom has created ...more

I am not normally a fan of short stories or novellas because I find that I am left wanting more. I love to curl up and immerse myself into a book and lose myself for hours. "Heart You" was a breakaway for me and interestingly enough although it did not take me long to read, I was still tangled up in thoughts of the story of Kara and Samantha. There is not only room on my to-be-read list for more shorter length stories but more of this genre. Living in more enlightened times where the LGBT commun ...more

This is my first book read from this author; it will by no means be my last.

As stated before, this story is not my usual cup of tea. I’m not normally one to read any kind of erotica, not for any particular reason other than it’s just not my preference. But after having read Heart You by Rene Folsom I was absolutely blown away!

While reading this novelette, it brought the blush to my face. I have never been big on reading F/F books, however with this one; I couldn’t bring myself to put it down. The story line of this novelette was well written to the point where there weren’t a lot of unnecessary details.

The characters were well written, even with the length of this story, you could almost feel the tension that Samantha had, and the desire she had for Kara as well. One thing that I did like with this story, was at a

The lovely and talented Rene is now trying her hand at writing, and if she's as good with the rest of her body as she is with that hand, then she's just as awesome as the sensual characters she's created for this first novellette of her "Roommate Romance" series. This is one that's probably best NOT read in public...that is, unless it'll be socially acceptable to squirm in your seat while fighting the urge to steal a few "personal" touches of one's own intimate areas....

Heart You is a coffee break read which got me hot under the collar. It is well written and gave enough detail for the main characters to be engaging. The ending is open, allowing you to imagine what might happen next, without it being a cliffhanger.

I was given a copy of this book by the author and was not compensated for my honest review.
This was a short story that was hot and spicy! I am not going to go into details, simply because of it’s length. I do think that Sam should have grabbed the bull by the horn and told Kara how she felt sooner. Life is way to short to sit around wondering if someone is going to be upset because you think they are sexy as hell and want to be with them.

If you're not into f/f stories or threesomes, or can't at least have an open mind, DO NOT READ THIS. I hate when people read something outside their comfort zone and then trash what they read because the author wrote something that made them uncomfortable. STOP READING. Or DON'T PICK IT UP! This is an EROTIC, SHORT STORY. Got that? EROTIC. There will be SEX. SHORT STORY. It's not a full-length NOVEL. Got it? Okay. Good. Now, if you're still interested, read on...

Heart You is unbelievably hot in that way that is completely believable.

It's Valentine's Day and Sam is in her room wishing things between her and her roommate, Kara, were different. Instead, Kara is bringing home a hot date for the night and wants to force Sam into playing a game with them. Things start to heat up when the ice breaking game gets under way as Kara realizes just how strongly Sam feels for her.

Wow! I applaud the author Rene Folsom for writing such an entertaining and wonderful story. It wasn't a long story but it didn’t matter because it was still beyond brilliant! The writing was fantastic and the words painted a picture in your mind that makes you feel like you are actually in the story.

Sam and Kara are best friends and roommates. Sam was sitting alone on Valentine's Day, thinking about Kara and how much she wants her to feel the same way about her, while she wrote in her journal.

On Valentine's Day; however, she finally gets to explore her desires when Kara comes home with Daniel and a box of adult conversation hearts ready for a game. The game that they play consists of matching the hearts and performing the action on the hearts. The game gets going and eventually on Daniel's suggestion moved to the bedroom. Sama ...more

Rating: 4 out of 5 Fairies

'Heart You' is a sweet and Uber sexy erotica. Sam, the main character, finds an opportune moment to finally woo and seduce her roommate and bff. This is helped along by a cute guy who's there as a token penis. Just being honest here!

This erotica gets classified as 'sweet' because of the emotion and passion involved. Sam's feelings are clear and helped along by her inner dialogue. The author manages this both sensitively and with a realistic voice.

Was originally posted on Paranormal Sisters:

The main reason why I was drawn to this, because I don’t normally read f/f/m where the females in the end have the hots for each other, was because in my current work I’m writing the two main (female) characters having the hots for each other haha. So I was curious and wanted something that might help me out, even though my work isn’t as steamy as this one. ;)

Before reading this book you’ll need the following: a fan, dry panties and some privacy. That was my warning, Folsom wrote an incredible sexy short story that had me blushing and begging for more. Who hasn’t ever thought about someone they considered “off limits?” Rene Folsom brings that scenario to life through Kara’s sulking to sultry Valentine’s Day evening. Heart You gives an example of when three’s not a crowd if there’s desire and naughty games involved. Even though it’s a short story, Fol ...more

This story was deftly written. Author, Rene Folsom, pulls the reader in from the first sentence and like that anticipated kiss, leaves you breathless and wanting more. Her writing is effortless and leads you joyously into the melee that is Heart You. The clincher comes from a candy laced kiss and hurls you straight into the arms of pure pleasure. You will walk away looking to walk toward a "helping hand." This short was definitely worth the read and definitely a bargain.

I have to say, though as most of you by now know, Erotica is not my genre of choice. This review is being done for a friend.
I loved how it began. I have no idea how old these characters are. If I had to guess, I'd say college age, or freshly out of college. They're fun, high spirited best friends.
Kara comes off as a party girl, Sam more as the quiet unintentionally shy type. Kara has no idea how Sam feels about her. The opening scene was a great way to break the ice and even had me chuckling a b
