Disclaimer: I was given a copy of Grading Him by the author in exchange for nothing more than an honest review. All thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own.

Luna and Josephine are roommates and best friends too. They enjoy going out and are always on the hunt foe their next guy. The thing with Luna and Josephine is that when they find their next guy, they grade him. Not in terms of 1 to 10 but like a teacher would grade a test paper; i.e. D,C,B,A,A+ etc.

Thank you to Elizabeth for sending me a copy of this book for review! I was intrigued from reading the blurb and decided to read it straight away!

The story is very short but it gives you the perfect insight into the start of Josephine and Pierce’s ‘relationship’. I love that it is written all in one night and we get a view of the events from both characters. This allows you straight away to fall for both of them. There is so much emotion, passion and reality in each character and I was sucked in

With the opening of this new novella series we meet Jos and her best friend Luna as they are getting ready to go out to the clubs for the night. They both are looking for their A+ men. Both in bed and out. They have no idea what is waiting for them at the club. Pierce and his two best friends are at a club in town looking for their usual one night stand hook-ups. When Pierce sees a woman dumb her drink all over the bar he knows he has to meet here. What he wasn’t prepared for was the woman that ...more

I did receive this book in exchange for an honest review.

I got through about 20 pages of it. I found Jos to be a snotty bitch and completely unrealistic in terms of women. Women don't tend to tell a man in a club hallway that she wants him to do her long and hard in front of a bunch of people, as if it is part of her normal speech pattern.

Maybe I will come back to this one.

Once again I got lured in by the cover. That is one hot cover!

Now as far as the story goes there were pros and cons. The pros were the sex. The erotic parts were well done.

However I didn't really like the characters. They came across as arrogant and just unpleasant. The female and her friends go around "grading guys" and come across as slutty and egotistical. (I know guys sometimes do the same thing and it's just as bad or worse then, just an irritating thing to do.) Also the dialogue just didn'

This book was given to me for my honest review

Seek and Ye shall find is a common saying that most of us have grown up with knowing. But what happens when you seek and don’t find what you think you’re looking for? Is it just our mind going on wishful thoughts or is it more? Can we find the ultimate prize that our heart seeks or is just wishful thinking?

This is the first book of the Him Her Them Series and need to be read in order

This was a very well written short story. This had suspense, flirting, and plenty of hot sex all rolled into one story. What more could a girl want? Nothing on this end.

The characters Luna and Josephine roommates and best friends. They have this "game" they do when meeting a guy and taking him home to bed. They rate him! Both girls are looking for a guy who can score a HUGE A++++ but that has yet to happen.

They go out with another couple who are friends but are not real fun people to be around

Unfortunately, this series was very disappointing to me. The synopsis sounded great, and overall I liked the basic plot of the story. The steamy scenes are hot, but at times, they bothered me because of the personalities of the main characters. However, there were indeed moments where I enjoyed the story, but they were few and far in between. This is the only reason it got bumped up to two stars.
Grading Him started out with great potential. IN the beginning, I liked Jos and Luna, but the moment

If you are you looking for an intense, erotic short novel with a cliff hanger, this is the book for you. Are you looking for two strong leads that are who they are, and show the intense sexual desire needed for this book, well you have it. This book gives you all of that and more. The author does a great job of what she wanted to do, make an intense, erotic romance that it could me more than just a one night stand. The normal is out in this b

We follow Josephine or Jo as her friends call her. Jo and her best friend Luna like to grade men on their performance in bed like A+, A, B, C etc.
Jo and Luna are on a night out with 2 of their boring friends. Jo asks Luna to get her a drink, when Luna brings it back, it's not to Jo's taste. She likes everything a pacific way. She takes it back to the bar and ends up persuading the bartender to let her behind the bar to make her

Jos (Josephine) and her girlfriend head out for a night of fun, drinks, dancing and some hard core flirting.
Jos isn't interested in the relationship thing, but a one night stand is never out of the question.

Pierce and his mates head out for a night of drinks and laughs.
Pierce the womaniser, not in to the relationship thing just wants a one night stand. But looking over the sea of people, the girls are just the same. Fake nails, bleach blonde and drunk.

That's until he sees Jos.

Grading Him and Reaching Her by Elizabeth Lynx were HOT!!! Josephine is a sassy, sexy chick that doesn't really seem to be bothered by her Love Em and Leave Em lifestyle. After all, she's just looking for that one man that can earn a passing grade. Who wants to waste time getting to know someone, investing your heart, sweat and

Erotic story of a strong woman who meets a hot man in a bar. She only does one night stands - and she grades the men she sleeps with.

So she does have fabulous sex with the guy and sleeps over, just long enough to decide that she might want to see him again...but then she wants to make him work for it.

Was not a fan of the writing style or the back and forth POVs or the grammar issues and typos or the back and forth present tense/past tense in the same paragraph. We also don't learn enough about

Josephine Powell is a professor of psycology at a local college. Pierce Taylor is a self made success. He has risen from the slums to a position of power and now he works for a charity to help inner city kids. They both like to take what they want when it comes to a relationship. They both believe in one night and one night only. This book does contain profanity and a lot of sexual scenes. Its not really my kind of book but the story line is good. If this offends you this book is not for you. Jo ...more

Looking for a quick, hot, steamy read? This is the book for you!

Jos isn't your typical naive woman who is quick to fall into bed with a man just because he shows her attention. She knows exactly what she's looking for and exactly how she is going to get it. Pierce is hot and sexy and used to women just falling at his feet. It makes it easy for him to push them out of his bed when he's finished with them. When he spots Jos across the bar, he thinks he's found another quick lay. Much to his shock

A very interesting start to a series. I love that Josephine goes after what she wants and doesn't take no for an answer. She is strong and is the perfect character for this type of story. I like Pierce. He is sexy and seems fun but, he is almost too juvenile for a character like Josephine. I hope that he gets to her level in the next one. This is super short and kind of leaves you hanging. But, in a good way. I can't wait to see if Pierce can figure out the clue. I do wish that Josephine would h ...more

I dont usually like short stories, this one hooked me. I like the characters and found myself smiling and getting a great visual picture. As an artist, visual connections in books are important to me. I first found Elizabeth Lynx on Facebook I hadn't heard of this book, but instantly liked her personality, some indie authors are very outputting on line, Elizabeth was very open, so I quickly added her book to my short list, so glad I did. I can't wait for the rest of the journey and like th

This is an action packed sexy short story.
It all starts out as a game between long-time friends and roommates, Luna and Josephine. They graded their dates, both were on a quest for that elusive A+ stand-out man.
Josephine finds an attraction to Pierce when she hears the sound of his voice, then looks up and thinks he is looking like her potential perfect A, but looks alone won’t win him that grade.
Ever wonder what how two head-strong people interact? Well, brace yourself because Josephine and P

This is the first book in the Him Her Them Series. What happens when two dominant people meet and sleep together? Everything combust. Our main characters are the one night stand kind of people, but when they get together everything is so passionate they don't want to let go. How can two people who are so use to having one night admit they want more? Or will they let a good opportunity slip by out of fear? I really enjoyed this novella.

Book one introduces Pierce and Jos - a very cool couple and I loved getting to know them. Jos is an amazing character and I love how she can steal a scene and totally make it her own. Her grading system is fun and she has some very strict requirements for each level. They are exactly what the other has been looking for, but Jos is going to make Pierce really work for it. I loved it all.

HOT HOT HOT! Unfortunately, it's a serial and this is only part one and we are definitely left hanging on the proverbial edge as this intensely hot beginning of what promises to be a flame of a story! The characters are awesome, abrupt and outspoken, down to earth and truly know what it is they want, just not a relationship, or so they think! The author has taken this story and brought us to the extreme edge, panting for more as the suspense of what will happen between Pierce and Jos, as they sl ...more
