Just realized I've not done a nipple count on my own book! :/ So....

nipple = 12
breast = 24
cock = 9 (although sometimes cocking of the head, but sometimes not...)
fuck = 120 (often used as like 'awe, fuck...' but sometimes more like 'fuck me')

There's also a fair amount of clenching, gasping, and teasing. ENJOY!

It's live!!! OMG OMG OMG!!! I hope you all like it!!!

Forget a knight in shining armor! How about being saved by a guy in a little white towel and named Ronin. Seriously. * le sighhhh

This book really caught me by surprise !! I found myself really enjoying this steamy story of Devin and Ronin❤️. Devin was in an emotionally abusive relationship with Jake. We have all been there, first blind love at 18, so in Devin's eyes, Jake was the end all say all. She loved him and had a fairytale future planned for them riding off into the sunset. Jake, unfortu

Ugh! Damn were frustrating as hell!

I'm sorry but you ruined the book for me. I just don't get it.

So we meet Devin. She's heartbroken because her boyfriend of 3 some odd years broke up with her. Nevermind the fact that he beat her down emotionally a majority of the time they were together and cheated on her repeatedly.


Devin--how could you possibly STILL be in love with JERKFACE Jake...

Little Conversations by Sibylla Matilde is a simple love story that takes you on a small journey of rediscovering your self-worth, love, and moving on. This book surprised me on how much I found myself understanding with what the main characters went through. Abuse can be broken up into two categories: physical and emotional. Abuse whether physical or emotional can leave behind scars that will take time for those wounds to fade and heal. Sometimes those scars never go aw

*Copy given to girls by author in exchange for an honest full review to follow..

This book took me on a small journey..I wanted to slap the heroine Devin in the face on many, many occasions for being weak and letting a boy (stupid boy at that) make her feel less than she is. But a part of me recognized myself and young girls growing up. I would like to think I was a bit stronger back in the day..but if I am being honest, I found my strength in my years and experience

I devoured this book. Lots of yummy moments strung together artfully. It's a little YA, but it flows great. It reminded me of the volatility of that age, how irrational you can feel about love, clinging to boys who seemed so important at the time, but in retrospect, none of them were the right one. 'They were like northern stars, pointin me on my way, to your lovin arms'

I don't know how many people will know this song, I remember it. It's perfect for this book;

I had the honor of beta reading this book and damn am I glad I read it.

Reasons why I loved this debut novel:
1) Ronin.........mmmmmmmmm..........Ronin. He's super yummy.
2) fabulous chemistry between Ronin and Devin.
3) On a personal level, I found myself being able to relate to Devin's journey throughout the novel....going from a doormat to a strong woman, learning how to be assertive, learning simply what she wants and who she is.
4) I can honestly say I have NEVER had such an intense reaction

Awesome Breakout Novel
Gahhhh from the first page Devin was breaking my heart. The author was able to capture the insecurity and sadness Devin had from page 1. Devin was not an annoying character, in fact my 18 year old self could easily relate to her. Being a teen is hard , being a "teen in love" is harder especially with a douche like Jake. I just wanted to wrap my arms around Devin and tell her what my grown up self wished she knew at her age but in order to learn from it Devin has to experie

The author captures a vibrant portrait of the characters and their motives. The hero is Ronin. He is a broken hearted male who’s behavior had manifested itself into separation and bitterness, until he meets Devin.
They two characters find solace and comfort in each other.

This book is an in depth analysis of a young girl’s struggle with a failed relationship. It is about a young girl who goes back to the person who is no good for her (Jake). Devin’s internal struggle is realis

The story of Devin and Ronin, and the oh so infuriating Jake.
Now if you don't like a book that gets you not knowing whether you love or hate the main character maybe you should think carefully before reading this.
Quite simply Devin is in a relationship with Jake but he doesn't only love Devin! I think the saying having your cake and eating it comes to mind! Devin meets Ronin and so starts a beautiful friendship.
As I said there are times that you find Devin irritating but she's a venerable downtr

Little Conversations is the first book by author Sibylla Matilde. The story begins with Devin a recent high school grad struggling to save her relationship with her boyfriend Jake.

 photo Devin-LittleConversations_zps4ddd59f7.jpg

She is determined to do what she can to make things work with Jake. Even if that means putting herself through some pretty nasty stuff. Jake is self absorbed and he's cold and thoughtless towards Devin. I won't give anything away, but Jake is a total Douche!

The sweetness of little conversations....

Little Conversations is a sweet and tender and HOT love story about Devin and Ronin. Devin has recently graduated from high school and is stuck in an emotionally abusive relationship with Jake, her boyfriend of 3 years. The author describes it so perfectly as ill-fated young love . It is interesting to me that some people couldn't understand why Devin continues to hold on to Jake and just not let him go, but if you really put yourself back into high scho

That's what Devin is.

Jake has her so messed up that she can't possibly see how any one else can possibly find her special.

So many times the hot guy falls for the plain girl who can't understand why any one could like little old her! For once there is a valid reason as to why a girl would think that about herself and why the hot guy see's more in her than she see's when she looks in the mirror.

I HATED Jake! And though I have never let a guy treat me that badly, when I was younger I did

What a fantastic debut novel for Sibylla Matilde.

I loved this book. It was well written, well thought out and the story flowed brilliantly.

Centred around a young girl named, Devin, we experience her life and the struggles she faces. We meet the past that she is unable to let go of along with the future that is trying so hard to break through.

There are moments that make you smile, laugh, cringe and shout. There were moments that my kindle almost ended up out of the window, but all signs of a fabu

I had the privilege of beta reading this book (my 1st!!).

This is Sibylla Matilde debut novel about finding true love. The story takes you on an emotional roller coaster with laughter, happiness and heartbreak. It reminds us sometimes we need to let our hearts lead and stop worrying about the ideas of what we think love should be.
Oh and ladies, there is a new book boyfriend on the block and his name is Ronin!

I received a copy of this book through the fifty shades support group on goodreads via the author for a honest review.

First I DO NOT AND I REPEAT DO NOT like Jake. He is a snake. He is horrid and just downright blech. I don't care how gorgeous and popular you are just blech. downright snake and wolf in sheep's clothing bad. What he does to Devin and how he destroys her psyche is just wrong plain and simple. He gets anything that happens to him. And let me tell you he deserves to get more that wh
Wonderful read, well written with scenes that come to life.

Jake who she always imagined herself married to with children, but that has all changed , he has met another girl while away working and only sees Devin when the new girl is not available.

As much as I wanted to enjoy this. I couldn't seem to get into it like I'd hoped. Unfortunately I had to dnf it at 40%.

As far as story telling goes there was absolutely nothing wrong with the story, or the writing in general. It was mostly the characters that I disliked and couldn't get a handle on.

I like my heroines to be strong and kick-ass taking no crap. I understand that Devin went through a lot of emotional turmoil and I don't know what that's like having never experienced, and maybe that

I seriously bought this book because of the cover cause I mean how could I not with those abs on display. I am so glad I bought this book cause I loved it from the start. the chemistry between Ronin and Devin was out of this world. I have to say that Devin really started pissing me off, cause she couldnt pull her head out of her butt long enough to see what was standing right in front of her. Jake which is her ex-boyfriend and in my mind the biggest douche bag I have ever encountered in a book. ...more

What a beautiful story. This book definitely got to me, I wanted to punch Jake, slap Devin and take Ronin home with me! What a great set of characters and to get that much emotion out of me they were obviously well written.

I won't spoil the book, it has highs and it has lows, and I definitely needed a tissue at one point.

I'll definitely be looking out for more books by this author.
