He hasn’t been with a woman in five years.

She hasn’t been with a real man … until now.


I’ve had enough of the crap that goes along with living in the city. So, I packed for a weeklong vacation in the mountains. Isolation in a cabin for the next seven days sounds like a good way to recoup and get my life back in order. After getting lost while hiking, I stumble

Oh. God.

"And I know you want all ten inches of my huge cock shoved deep inside you."

Ten inches?


His words were so vulgar. Goddammit, they turned me on.

"Give it to me," I said with more force than I thought I could have mustered right then. "Give me that big cock."

Oh, gosh. >.<

This had such potential. Erotica featuring a bearded, muscly lumberjack who lives in the woods and hasn't had sex in five years. Yay! A woman, who in an effort to

I enjoyed this short, sexy, and sinfully delicious read!

Five years ago, after being betrayed by his girlfriend and best friend, Jake took the decision to get away from his toxic life and to moving out in the middle of nowhere. He’s now a lumberjack living his life as a recluse. Tired of the world around her and what is going on in her life, Vivian wants to break away from it all and decides to take a weeklong vacation in the mountains.

Jake the lumberjack moves to the middle of nowhere to get away from his girlfriend and best friend that betrayed him. He hasn't been with a woman in five years. So you know he is ready for the sex!

Vivian just got out of a bad relationship and is ready for a real man to take care of her sexual needs!

It is a short book so there is not a lot of character development but the sex is good.

A storm is coming and our heroine is stranded in the woods and needs to find shelter.

And what do you know?

She stumbles upon a cabin, and who's inside?

A very horny lumberjack who just happens to be into red-heads...


This is a fast read. I finished the audio in a mere hour...

Especially if you're in a reading jam and needs something to snack on before you can start a longer book.

Many a time I checked to make sure I wasn't reading an Alexa Riley book. Many a time I braced myself for the onslaught of the words cum, cumming - Riley's signature *shudders*
But nothing jumped at me.

Vivian was mine, and I’d make her see it. She belonged with me out here in the wilderness. If I had to throw her over my shoulder and drag her back here like a caveman, I sure as fuck would.

One hell of an insta-lust/insta-love story!

Possessive alpha heroes are my weakness. Just hearing the word ‘MINE’ is enough to make my heart melt into a puddle! Our hero, Jake, is a lumberjack. Wait, somebody please help me! Lumberjacks are also my kryptonite!

Well, back to Jake. He’s a lumberjack who
This book?

I didn't see the number of pages, so when I saw that I had about 5% left of the book I panicked (again), thinking I don't have the whole book.

Still, what can I say, it was a hot one!

I mean, it had its bad parts, but it didn't lack in hotness! I really liked the guy (that big, alpha male) and she wasn't too bad either. And I really appreciated the drama-free book!

Still, as I said before, I think it's almost impossible to write a really good book (even a 3.5 one) in under 150 pages (I'd

This author can be hit or miss with me, but with a cover like that, there was no way I wasn't going to read this one. And lucky me, this was a good one. I especially loved the epilogue.

Insta-lust, insta-love, insta-hard poking.

Short, hot and filled with hard wood - Jake can poke me with his big axe any day.

Well that is how most quick smut goes (maybe not the lumberjack). This one I just thought was not written as well as others and did not hit the mark for me.

Lumberjack was just an okay read for me, which is probably my fault as I hyped it up in my head and let the cover distract me. 'A Real Man', those are some big shoes to fill and for me he wasn't as real of a man as I wanted him to be, but then again this is all very subjective. It was super-insta and just a bit over the top for me, the entire thing was rushed with everything the author wanted us to gain from this book. I do suggest you give it a shot, after all this is only my opinion.

Paraphrasing some of the weird shit that happens in this book:

Oh yeah baby, lick my asshole even though you only met me like an hour ago, that's so hot.


Seriously, back door loving is alright, but there's really no need to go straight for the butthole when you haven't even "claimed" her meow meow yet.

Oh yeah baby, clean your axe in front of me, that's so hot.

There is this good-intentions, dirty-mouth, tattooed, bearded, well-built lumberjack in his mid thirties who lives in an isolated cabin in the forest in the middle of nowhere and he hasn’t had a woman for 5 years and he is crazy about real red-heads.
And there is this 29 years old sexually frustrated red-head woman who has had a bad break up in the city from her unfaithful boyfriend and who does not actually know what “REAL MAN” means.
And the woman suddenly appears in lumberjack’s cabin lost and

Short, dirty, and a little bit sweet. Mainly it was sweaty, rough, and dirty.

I've never been one to reward mediocracy, and even at what this book is - a short smut with a HEA - it's mediocre.



Bland sex.
Vanilla touches.
No passion.

Trapped in monotony and smothered by a city offering too much and men offering too little, she goes off to the woods and finds wood from a bearded lumberjack.

Short book. Not a lot of depth in it. And I wasn't expecting any. Bit too much of "You're mine", blah, blah, blah. You know I hate that.

If you are looking for a quick, escape from reality book, check it out.

This was a short read, and as long as you expect that what you are getting is a very sexy read; then you won't be disappointed. There is no huge depth to the story or the characters. I basically would class this as "Lumberjack porn" if there is even such a thing! LOL

It was hot at times, and I don't mind that as long as that is what I am expecting. I thought there could have been a great story added to this; but it great for a quick and easy read.

I want to like it more than I did but it's not as good as I wanted it to be. It feels like there's something missing.

The story is about Jake, 35 and Vivian, 29.

After Jake caught her girlfriend and best friend having sex, he packed his things and left everything else behind. For the last five years, he's working as a lumberjack and lives in a cabin in the middle of nowhere.

Vivian just broke up with her boyfriend of three months. Maybe boyfriend is not the right word. More of just dating for three

This was a perfect story!

Jake, our hero was the celibate lumberjack aka mountain man in the tale by the same title, "Lumberjack." He was the strong quiet type until he met the one, city girl Vivian.

Jake had lived in the city for the longest until he was betrayed by his cheating ex girlfriend and his male friend. He tells his family what happened and he leaves the big city behind without a second glance!

Five years later and still celibate, he's made a home for himself working in a small cabin

It's not even worth writing a review for. This book was pure smut and pretty terrible. I honest to God feel like I need a shower now. It went beyond dirty and straight into nasty.

Insta-love and the guy had some weird thing about doggy style. And I still have that fucking song stuck in my head.

This was short, smutty, insta love and low angst. It was a nice way to pass an hour. It is quick so you don't get a lot of build up before they get together and it ends with a HEA. ...more

Don't get me wrong, I am all about quick, dirty and steamy reads (and the fact that it involved a rugged recluse that lived in the mountains had me all but dying to get my hands on this book.) But this was such a let down.
