Lindsay Bell has sworn off men; she’s been used enough, thank you very much. She’s determined to focus on the interior decorating company she runs with her two best friends, Anna and Candace.

This is the first book in the Pleasure Inn series. The premises of the series are basically three best friends who haven't had the best of luck with men and have decided to stay away from them!! Enter the Goddess of Passion to the rescue! She has decided to take it upon herself to help them find happiness... and sexual bliss! ;)

All Tied Up is the story of Lindsay. She is an interior designer and has been hired by, yes, mystery client/Goddess of Passion,
A novella that has a mixture of paranormal, light BDSM with a contemporary feel. A goddess of passion, Pamina (with "cat" Abra in tow) takes on a challenge when she overhears three women who
uttered the dismal words "sworn off men", it meant she had work to do. It was time for her to summon a bit of magic, spread a little passion and show these women they were far too young to rely on sex toys for the rest of their lives.

The story focuses on Lindsay and her remodeling of a room at the Pleasure In

This was a free read from Amazon. Right after I read this, I ended up purchasing the following two. This is a very short cute story that I enjoyed and had fun reading. It's nothing too complex and Ms. Fox has a good sense of humour when she writes this story. The sex scenes were decent. ...more

2.5. This read kind of like a Blaze, but with less substance. I really like the premise, but I think each of the 3 heroines deserve a full-length book.

The first in a series of three stories about three friends who have decided, each for their own reasons, to swear off men. Now apparently if you are having trouble with men all you need to do is swear them off and say these magic words "Just because we've all sworn off men, certainly doesn't mean we have to lock down the candy shop, girls." with the intention to do a ton of masturbating and *poof* you have now summoned Pamina the Goddess of Passion who will immediately set you up with your soul ...more

Ah, romance. As in romance novel. As in completely implausible plot sprinkled with gratuitous sex and overly romantic gestures no real man would ever perform for a flesh-and-blood woman.

Which is probably why I love the genre. It gives me an outlet for my fantasies that men really do want to sweep women off their feet and put their needs and wants ahead of (or, at least, on the same level as) their own.

No romance novel is great, at least, not in my eyes. Every one lacks any shred of plausibilit

This was a great little quick read. Basic premise is a sex goddess comes to earth to help three friends who have "sworn off men" to get some yummy hunky goodness. The story centers around Lindsay, who is designing a BDSM room for her new client (this would be the sex goddess in cognito).

Just so happens a wall needs taken down and a yummy handyman needs to be hired. Well turns out he's handy with his hands in more ways than one.

This is a quick read, so no deep meaning or anything earth shatteri

Mmmmmm....bondage sex with a virtual stranger. So hot! This book was getting really high marks until they started spouting the I love yous towards the end...really? They don't HAVE to fall in love...when a book is over a period of a few days a HFN is sometimes better.

Final Score - 5 Smokin Stars!

Mollie *scoutrmom*
A pleasant story of mild BDSM and love at first sight.

Ridiculous. Good sex scenes, but we don't get to know the protagonists at all well. Characterizations: shallow at best.

A very steamy and different kind of story. Am looking forward to reading the other two in the series as well. Unique idea for a story setting as well.

This is a nice bed time story. Not really sure I understood why there was a need for the paranormal element to the story. I think it's a nice short story if you want a quick read. ...more
