Review to come
Erotic and sweet 4 - novella read about a married couple exploring more intimacy, bondage/domination games while having an empty nest. The H was an alpha male throughout and h loved him very much, there was great communication and no angst and it was a sexy read. Each novella is about a particular fantasy of h or H and can't wait to read bk5/6.

4.75 stars!

It's all sex, but it's hot sex ;)
A couple, married for almost 20 years, is finally at a point where both kids are out of the house, and they are financially secure. The wife decides it's time to spice things up and takes it upon herself to coax the dominant force she's always sensed lurking beneath the surface in her husband.
We do learn a bit about Dean and Julie--their pasts, their current employment status--and the author does a great job of describing how important trust and their emotional

The Marriage Diaries is a set of four novellas about a couple that has been married for going on twenty years and has decided to spice up their sex life now that their children are grown and out of the house. I enjoyed the fact that the characters are easy to relate to. Comfortability in a long marriage is something many couples experience.

It all started with Jillian making the courageous choice to seduce her husband Dean in his office. What follows is a set of awesome short stories full of hot

I got this book series by a recommendation on Facebook. I wish I could remember who, but it turned out to be a pretty sexy collection of short stories about the same couple. Normally I don't like book after book on the same people, but since these are smaller stories of a larger story, it worked, but I really wished it had just been one bigger book.

Anyho, it was a sexy look at a couple married for a long time, the kids have gone off to colle
I absolutely loved this series. It was pure hotness and kinky fun! *Fanning Myself* I'm a sucker for a book dealing with a happily married couple, exploring the D/s lifestyle. I'm so tired of seeing books all about a billionaire and their immature 20 yr old girlfriends, they're trying to force into submission..

This story is about Dean and Jillian Noble both (In their mid-thirties) high school sweethearts, married for 20 yrs, who still love and desire each other. And wanting to explore each othe

Apparently I started this last year and never finished. No particular reason. It was an enjoyable read. Not much of a story, but definitely hot.

When I read the first volume in this series I just knew that Jillian and Dean were going to have many steamy scenarios for me to enjoy in future installments, and Erika Wilde proved me correct. I loved the concept here from the start, with an empty nester couple trying to rekindle and spice up their love life. Sure, if we’re going by the cover models they are most definitely not your typical married couple sending their child off to college…I mean, honestly, those cover models are HOT. But that ...more

This is the kind of erotica I have been looking for: consensual sex within a healthy monogamous relationship with no emotional baggage. Just fun and playful and intimate. More like what I imagine a lot of people experience every day. I am so tired of the dark and stormy D/s, BDSM stuff that, to me, perpetuates rape culture if it isn't well-written. And how relatable is that anyway? To me, something that is more real, like it could actually happen, is way hotter than any far off fantasy. I want t ...more

This series was so damn HOT!!! I loved that this was done with a married couple trying to rekindle their spark after almost 20 years of marriage. It was nice to see them come into their own and enjoy one another anew. The sex can become a bit tiring after a while (like most stories that have multiple sex encounters), but I never felt it was overdone or empty.

Did I say that this series was hot?! Because, yeah... I can't wait for the final book!
I loved the pace of this story there was no drama or whatsoever going on. The characters Dean and Jillian are married and in their late 30s and lets just say that they're at their peak (well Dean definitely is :D) where they fulfil their fantasies. So I'm happy that I enjoyed breezing through the book without angst or any eye rolling.

The Marriage Diaries was a pretty entertaining read. It's short but to the point.
This is Jillian and Dean's story. They're a married couple (20 years believe) with kids already out of the house. They've been together since their teen years (which I think was really sweet) and their commitment to each other is so amazing.

The Marriage Diaries is the story of how these two people (who've been together practically for the majority of their lives) decided to spice things up in their lives.

And spice

Oh my god! This book is pure sex! A couple madly in love even after 19 years of marriage, discovering their sexuality anew and indulging in countless fantasies they only ever dreamed of before, too afraid what the other might think. Until Jill takes a chance and brazenly seduces her husband, Dean, which finally sets free his inner caveman-like alpha male that always lurked beneath the surface. Now with their inhibitions lowered a whole new world of possibilities lies in front of them – and they ...more

Jillian and Dean have been married for 19 years, and their two boys are now out of the house. Jillian would like to get the sparks started in their sex life again. Not saying their sex life sucked before, it was just more vanilla than she wants. Her husband Dean had an abusive father and he has always held back due to

This was a well written group of novellas about a mid 30's couple spicing up their sex life. I liked how adventurous they both were and how this change helped bring them closer. I also liked how not all their fantasies turned out the way they wanted.
I just wish it was longer- it was only 140 pages for all 4 stories. I may buy the next few stories.

Dean and Jillian's marriage is something I think every woman/girl lusts after. The Marriage Diaries simply tells a story of growth and trust in an already ideal relationship. But like any relationship, there is always room for improvement. Jillian and Dean may have worked through thick and thin to get where they are now but, they have exceeded everyone's expectations and built a beautiful life together. Their only fault, they have strict vanilla sex in the bedroom. A matter which Jilli

Lord have mercy on me but where to begin with this review...... As most of you know I love erotica reads.I read all kind some light some not so light and the down right raunchy ones but one thing that really sets this apart and at the top of my list as a MUST READ FOR ADULTS is the fact that the couple is married and they do not cheat on each but explore each other. They take the time to get to know one another's body in a different way. There is no outside influence or another person they are b ...more

This box set was a quick and entertaining read. I was able to read volumes 1-4 in one afternoon.

I enjoyed the fact that these stories were based around a loving, married couple who are in their upper 30's. Their sex life has gotten a little "vanilla" and routine, so Jillian decides to spice things up. Their two grown sons have moved out of the house, so she decides that it's the perfect time to start showing her ex-Navy Seal husband, Dean, that she's ready to take a walk on the wild side. Her a

This was a set of 4 very, very short books. It is about a couple, Jillian and Dean who married and had children while still in high school. They have been married almost 20 years now and have raised 2 wonderful boys who are officially out of the “nest”. Dean, an ex-Navy Seal now runs a highly successful security/surveillance company and is busy with his company and Jillian starts to feel alone now that her boys are gone.

The Marriage Diaries box set was like a four course meal and I was greedy and gluttonous. I was in a complete and constant state of arousal from the beginning to the end.

It is quite possibly the best straight up erotica I’ve read. I don’t really read books like these for a story line. I just want to be entertained, transported and aroused and this series most certainly checked all of those boxes.

For this couple with 19 years of marriage under their belt, they worked on fulfilling one fantasy aft

The Marriage Diaries Volumes 1-4 are about a married couple after their kids are fully grown and out of the house. Reading erotic romance novellas in this stage of a marriage was extremely refreshing and sexy. I don't see too many of them out there and I really enjoyed this one!
