this novel “Bereft Reality” reads like a steamy, X-rated soap opera! And I mean that in a good way :-). So much drama and what an emotional roller coaster! So many crazy things happen I feel like this could be a movie. Although there were some parts that I thought weren’t really necessary and slowed down the pace some, overall it was well done and was a lot hotter than I expected it to be. There is much more to this story than just some sex and violence, although that does play a pretty

this novel was quite a change of pace for me, as I normally gravitate towards more fantasy/paranormal romance, but this was one engaging and HOT tale that I couldn’t put down! I did have to have some patience in the beginning until I felt that I was more caught up in the thrust of the story, but the author does a great job of explaining all the characters and their stories. I don’t rehash books (That is what the book description is for), but I enjoyed the easy flow and dark drama and original pl ...more

well “Bereft Reality” certainly took me a while to read, but in the end I’d say it was absolutely worth it! I like how everything came together (even if the end is a tad frustrating), and I enjoyed reading this unusual, sexxxy book! I think James Summers writes very well… very descriptive and strong and we feel like we are there almost like watching an erotic David Lynch movie or something. There were some slow parts that did little to advance the forward progression of the plot, and some minor ...more

"Bereft Reality” is the first book I’ve read from this talented author James Summers, but I hope it’s not the last! The way this book was written is different from many I’ve read before, but it totally hooked me right from the beginning and kept my attention throughout. It was erotic, intelligent, weird, sad, dark, funny, deep, tragic… I thought the storyline and the character development to be very original and well-thought out, and I liked that it wasn’t just “about sex” but had complex interw ...more

I find darkness in all things good, no matter what I examine, and then write about it. Through my use of plot twists I take the reader down a mostly straight path until I skew what had earlier been described as normal. Keeping you on your toes and on the edge of your seat are of paramount importance to me; they are the byproducts of my horror. Sexual tension, social situations, and psychological h ...more
