First Official Review for Raising the Bar

Raising the BarMy first official review for my super hot erotic story from Decadent Publishing’s The Edge series, Raising the Bar came in… and it’s a good one!! Long and Short Reviews covered it, and here’s a snippet of what they had to say:

“…if, like me, you enjoy escaping the monotony of the office for fifteen minutes and finding a quiet corner with your Kindle for some down and dirty reading, then Raising the Bar is a book for you. Add in luscious Luciano, and what’s not to enjoy?”

They scored it 4 out of 5. Yay! 😀 Check out the rest of the review here.

So if you want “some down and dirty reading” then check out more information on Raising the Bar and kink up your Kindle!

Have a fab weekend, everyone!

Another Review for Ditched!

DitchedJust spotted online, this quickie review of my first m/m erotic story, Ditched. If you love military gay stuff, you’ll love this. Hopefully 😉

Here’s what Day Dreaming had to say:

“It was fast paced and so hot that it even had me panting. I would have loved for this story to be longer to see how this could have developed into an actual relationship. All in all, I enjoyed this short story which satisfied my reading habit.”

Sex Toy Review: Lovehoney Sqweel 2 Oral Sex Simulator

SqweelThose lovely folks at Lovehoney sent me the Sqweel 2 Oral Sex Simulator to test out. I never used the first incarnation of this toy, so I’m a total Sqweel newbie. Marketed as “the world’s best oral sex simulator for women” this toy has ten silicone tongues, three powerful speeds, 30% more power than the first version of the toy, and a new reversible mode and flicker function.

My first impressions were good: the packaging was great, the toy itself looks good and is of good quality, and it’s easy to store. It takes two AAA batteries which are easy to come by, and switching on the toy is pretty self-explanatory (though there are instructions, too!).

There are definite pros and cons to the Sqweel 2 Oral Sex Simulator. It’s well made, innovative, not too expensive and feels nice on your lady parts. However, the material means that unless you want to be sore, lube is absolutely necessary, so no using this for a quickie. Also, it’s fairly noisy and if you press it too hard to your body, it slows down the mechanism.

Overall, if you find it easy to climax and are looking for a sex toy that’s a little different, then I’d definitely check out the Sqweel 2 Oral Sex Simulator. But if you like your toys with serious power and concentration on your clit, then I’d probably skip this one.

Sex Toy Review: Lovehoney Jessica Oh! Rabbit Slimline Silicone Vibrator

Lovehoney Jessica Oh! Rabbit Slimline Silicone VibratorThere are so many rabbit vibrators on the market now that it can be difficult to decide what to buy. The Lovehoney Slimline Oh! Rabbit Vibrator is smaller than most rabbit vibrators, which makes it ideal for your first toy, or if you don’t like too much girth in a vibe. Alternatively, you might like to just concentrate on the vibrations rather than the penetration. Either way, this toy is great. It’s attractive, well-made and packs a serious punch.

Despite its smaller size, it still has plenty of functions to keep your lady bits happy. There are three rotating speeds in the shaft, ideal for stimulating your G-spot. And for your clitoris, there are 3 speeds and 4 patterns – bliss! The best part is that you can use the rotation and vibration either one at a time, or both together. So there is plenty of variation, too! And that’s before you throw in the fact that it’s waterproof – even more fun! 😉

The Lovehoney Slimline Oh! Rabbit Vibrator takes 3 AAA batteries. It’s pretty quiet, and seriously powerful. If you’re particularly sensitive, using plenty of water based lube is recommended. So go on, check this super rabbit out on Lovehoney and add it to your toybox for tons of orgasmic fun!

 

Home Sweet Home

After a lovely, lovely time away which went far too quickly – I’m home sweet home! I’m shattered and currently wading through my emails. I’ve had some goodies, too, including a story acceptance, a fab review (see below) and information on my appearances at Erotica, which I’ll share when they’re confirmed.

Once I have all my photos downloaded I’ll be posting a couple of blog posts about my holiday/research trip. I had an awesome time, particularly when I revisited the settings of some of the scenes from Bite with Height. I am also jam packed with ideas for the follow up. So watch this space!

Naughty DeliveryAnyway, here’s a lovely review I had for my BDSM short, Naughty Delivery:

“Naughty Delivery is a quick but tantalizing read about a couple who try something new. The story is cute, sexy, and a very fun read. I enjoyed reading this novella, and I will be happy to read more by Lucy Felthouse in the future.” 4 out of 5, Book Savvy Babe

eBook Review: Far From Perfect by Portia Da Costa

Article first published as eBook Review: Far From Perfect by Portia Da Costa on Blogcritics.

Far From Perfect

I knew before picking up Far From Perfect that it wouldn’t be the type of work I’m used to from this author. However, I love Portia Da Costa’s stuff so wanted to read it anyway! And granted, it’s much sweeter than some of her other books and stories, but that doesn’t make it any less of a good read!

This book tells the tale of Anna Felgate. For as long as she can remember, she’s been in love with Nick Lisitano. They’ve been family friends for many years and she’s always had a crush on him. However, it had always been a one-sided thing, until the night Anna decided to seduce Nick in order to rid herself of her virginity. The circumstances weren’t perfect, but Anna thought it best to have her first sexual encounter with a man she knew and trusted, and also one with a reputation as a fabulous lover. Unfortunately, though her plan worked to begin with and a fabulous night of sex was had, it totally messed up their friendship and four years later, it still hasn’t been repaired.

Anna’s still in love with Nick, but she knows she’ll never have him as he’s a millionaire playboy with no intention of settling down with anyone, let alone Anna. She’s pretty much come to terms with the state of affairs, until he waltzes back into her life with an insane proposition that has her brain whirling. Add that to the reaction her body has to being close to him again, and poor Anna’s in a mess.

Nick’s proposal is engagement. His seriously ill father is experiencing a slow recovery and Nick believes that his ‘engagement’ to Anna – whom his father adores – will perk him up. It’s a completely hare-brained plan, but Anna loves the man she’s always thought of as an uncle, so goes along with it for the sake of him and his health. Of course, her own father is also delighted, so once the pair begin the charade, it’s increasingly difficult not to go along with it.

Naturally, their fake engagement has consequences. Anna must split up with her perfectly nice but not at all right for her boyfriend, and Nick must actually spend some time with Anna for the outside world to believe their relationship is real. The trouble is, the more time the pair spend together, the more the sexual chemistry between them sparks and eventually it becomes too much to resist. And so follows a will-they-won’t-they storyline of love, hate, betrayal, fear and trickery. The question is, can Anna and Nick get past all the problems and uncover what they really want? Only one way to find out…

Despite this being a more romantic tale than an erotic one, I still thoroughly enjoyed it. I’ve always found Portia’s writing style absorbing and enjoyable, and I whizzed through this tale in no time. I found Nick both lovable and infuriating at the same time and I laughed (in a good way) at some of the things he said and did and often wondered why Anna didn’t just thump him!

Overall, this was a really fun read. The sex isn’t explicit, but it’s still damn hot (which is why I’ve still included in on this site) and I found myself rooting for the young couple throughout the book and it was sweet torture as Portia keeps the reader guessing and guessing until the last possible moment!

If you’re looking for explicit erotica, this book isn’t for you. But if you’re in the mood for a sweet, yet tumultuous romantic read with spicy elements, then I’d definitely recommend Far From Perfect.
