This story was just terrible. TER-A-BUL. Its only saving grace? It was FREE from Amazon.

So, Meredith catches her fiance in bed with two of her bridesmaids and she flees to go stay with grandmother at the bed and breakfast that she owns. On day 1 in town, Meredith is heading into the jewelry story/candy shop (yes, really...) and she meets a handsome stranger, Connor, who buys her a ridiculously pricey pendant of emeralds. And some fudge. And she gets in the car with him and they drive off to a se

Freebie, yet somehow I feel like I want my money back. Maybe I just want that piece of my life that I spent reading it back. No real plot. Short. Convoluted ending that just made everything confused. Trying to mix genres in such a short medium is just a mistake.

1. What the *bleep* I'm confused about the ending did they actually meet or she dreamed the whole thing and in the end they left but WHAT HAPPEN when they left to go out.

2. The beginning was ok getting into it and next thing I know they are having sex which is ok because I don't mind I like erotica with alot of sex, but they kept going at it sex, sex with freaky stuff him mixing things with her private parts, more sex. I think they came up for air but who knows.

They met at jewelry/candy shop (or something like that) And he buys her an emerald pendant. He takes her to a beach, they have sex, he tells her some myths about magical emeralds and she lose her rear entrance virginity ... at the beach. Really?, would you lose it on a beach. Whitout some lube with all the sand, eventhough they had a blancket, the sand goes everywhere.

This all happen and then suddenly her grandma is calling her name, she was asleep on the porch at the Bed and Breakfast with a b

Interesting take on the green emeralds folk lore from the Egyptians mythical magic. The story was full of explicit erotic sex scenes brought on by the green emeralds. However, once again I felt from this author that the passion between the characters was missing mainly because I felt it was one sided due to the man Connor being in control of every sexual move. It was almost too mechanical for my taste. It was a cute story but didn't Wow me over. Not bad for a free read from Amazon Kindle.
Meredith finds her fiancee cavorting with her two bridesmaids, ending the wedding and finding recluse at her Grandmother's inn. On one of her few outings in town she finds herself exchanging sensual banter that leads to a mindblowing experience.

I don't know what to think about this one, a quickie and although hot, hot, hot I was left slightly confused.

Meredith recently canceled her wedding because she found her fiancé in bed with two of her bridesmaids. So she walks into Chocolates and Gems, combination candy store and jewelry shop, hoping to find something to lift her spirits. There, the most gorgeous man she’s ever seen comes up to her and buys her an emerald pendant she was admiring in the jewelry case. He tells her emeralds were coveted in ancient times for their magical powers and they were believed to heighten sexual desires in women. T ...more

I enjoyed this book alot. I really liked the way the story started out. The beach and chocolate..two fabulous combinations. But i wish the author would have filled in a few more details and did a bit more with the story line as well. The steamy love scenes were great and i think with a little more story thrown in between some of the action, it would have been one of the kind of books you just read over and over for the romance and story.
I will be looking to read more of this authors books. I rea
Not bad for a short erotic story. I liked it, enough to look for other books by this (new to me) author. The entire story takes place in a single day. H/h meet, enjoy a afternoon with lots of sex on the beach…..add the magic of a emerald necklace…and voila….H/h find their true loves. It’s hard for me to give short stories a rating, I don’t read that many…but I think as short stories go, I give this one a B.

Although only 41 pages in length, this is a hot little tale of smokin’ beach sex with a stranger. Yes, we all know about the “stranger danger” rules, but this erotic tale is sure to please. After all, it does have a HEA, and it will leave you contemplating the magic and allure of emeralds.
A good short erotica story. Interesting history on emeralds. Really hot sex between Meredith and Connor. I was happy that even though Connor was the instigator he still had doubts of his own. A solid 3 stars for a short, sexy story.

Got this as a freebie from Ellora's Cave and I got to say it was HOT! I think I'll have to go find me a pretty emerald necklace along with some more books by this author.

This book was not something I enjoyed reading. There was no real story and the main character irritated me from the start by just going along with a stranger she met seconds ago. Even steps into his car. Just because he's handsome. Sorry, but in this day and age that's not something women do anymore. Too many bad things happened to those who did that women now know better than to trust a stranger. Besides, didn't you tell seconds ago that you just swore of men because recently you found your fia ...more

This was an ok freebie. I wasn't really that impressed. The basic story line was good and the characters were ok. There wasn't much depth or emotions to this story, and that dampened the appeal to me. I couldn't really get into this one and didn't really feel a connection between them or to the book at all. It also had a crude tint to it throughout instead of a sensual or romantic feel. Not really my style. There were quite a few mistakes too that had me having to read a part over and that didn' ...more

Let me first say that I have not read the first two books in the series and I read this as an arc from the publishing company which I appreciated. I would say that I don't think this is a stand alone book. You better read the first two in the series before this one. I found the book pretty confusing. It could have been the translation perhaps. There is a whole lot of time travel to different periods and history by the same characters to the point that they even see themselves when they were you ...more

HUH, what to say about this one. Well right from the start I thought "Well, they are not going to waste any time are they". Then it started to get a little to unrealistic to me. The constant references to Emeralds and thrown in historical facts about them just felt odd, and completely out of place. So I started to feel a little "blah, blah, blah" until the abrupt ending. At which point I thought "oh, OK that explains it" only to think, huh or was it. I guess in the end I am still confused. LOL T ...more

The book was free. I'd just finished a long and heavy read and figured a trash novel would clear my head for the next heavyv read. Oh, I wish I hadn't. It was sooooo poorly written. The premise was stupid. The story was stupid. The intimate scenes were stupid. Does this author actually expect to sell books to adults? I've known high schoolers who can string better sentences together. This kind of crappy writing distresses me rather than relaxes me. Waste of space on my e-reader and of time. Goin ...more

This was an unexpected book, I did not read the bio before downloading it and was quite shocked by the whole story, how can a person go from being upset because of her unfaithful partner to having hot sex on the beach. and was it all a dream at the end, if it was a dream I can say that i have never had such a dream, but if it actually happened then she certainly went over board on the rebound.
though the story was not believable, it was written well and flowed in all the right places

What on earth was that? other than the fact that i didnt buy this from behind the counter at a convinient store it was without doubt a virtual porn magazine with no pics. this book should have an age rating on it. 3 chapters of pure sex. the entire story line is a dream and the end will leave you wondering ok what just happened this was not by any means a story it was clearly just a mishaped piece of work to leave you confused.

The last thing Meredith is looking for is a man as she tries to recover from finding her fiance in bed with two bridesmaids. Yet once she puts on the emerald necklace given to her by the sexy stranger, she finds herself having some of the best damned sex ever.

Can I just say I adore anything by Desiree Holt? Emerald Green did not disappoint. Fun and sexy, this book left me with a craving for fudge. And handsome strangers!

I liked the story a great deal but the ending was weak. Conclusion by Deus ex Machina is usually not good plotting. The author tied up all the loose ends which is a good thing but the character internal logic didn't hold up and I hate the "He loves me-he loves me not" thing that ran through the whole book. How can anyone build trust in a relationship when you can't tell if you're being told the truth. All in all I'm glad I read the whole thing but the ending needed work.

for a freebie book from Amazon it was good. And it was HOT. However, I am very confused by the ending. Did they really meet and have the full day rendezvous? Or was it really just a dream? but then again she really does have the pendant. so many things left you wondering at this end of this story that I guess it could go either way, which is maybe what the author wanted? Who knows. but like I said, it was free, a quick read, and wonderfully hot.

Enjoyable tale that will have you looking for the nearest cold body of water to immerse yourself in and cool yourself down!!! It's steamy hot, including lots of oral and anal sex. Ms. Holt is quite good at bringing eroticism to the printed page. The story revolves around a supposedly magical emerald necklace and two strangers who spend a day engaged in all manner of sexual activity. 4 stars

Highly recommend this series for the middle school or high school girl who loves romance and mystery! Do not tell the younger crowd time travel because for some reason it turns them off. The minute I began reading I couldn't stop because I wanted to know what was going to happen to the main character.
