Call Me Cutie By Ava Sterling 5* #erotica #amreading

ncall me cutie

 

BOOM! She’s back if you missed it you can read Ava’s Meet The Author interview here.  and a review of one of her other books I read this week here. Remember I told you she really is productive,and releases a lot of short stories each month, well I got an ARC and  dipped into this one this morning while eating breakfast. I really enjoyed the story.  As I’ve said erotica is my guilty pleasure genre to read,  I have no shame I’ll read it all, I’m a damn romance author who writes spicy scenes herself what do you expect? I’m yet to find an erotica author I’m totally in love with… I think I’ve found her. Yep, I’ll part with my money for her stories no problem. Her stories have a good element of realism, I often find sometimes erotica is so unrealistic. She said in her in interview some of her writing is based on experience or experiences she would like…I narrow my eyes and look at Ava’s author page and think ” you naughty, naughty girl”.  Her characters so far seem engaging. Let’s get into the review…

The Plot:

Katie is a plain Jane in every way, at just twenty six years old she is rather envious of the tall blonde females men pass her up for. One night she’s messing around online and finds an app that promises to turn her into a “hot woman”. It does just that, literally. The story for me started off as a fun light one, when I got to this part. I was reading and eating breakfast thinking, okay the author has held back this is more fun and there will be some naughtiness somewhere. I was so so so wrong!

When Katie changes into a” hot new upgraded version of herself”, she gets dressed in her heels , new clothes and  then heads out for a coffee at her usual place. She is served by the one guy she hates, as he lusts after women so openly. He treats her differently, Katie experiences a real thrill as this new desirable women. On the way out she meets a hot guy, he opens the door for her like a true gentlemen…. swoon ladies enter Mr. Tall Dark and Handsome… and get this HE’S IN A SHARP SUIT LOL my one weakness.I almost died as the author paints a picture of a powerful, handsome man… he’s a lawyer so good choice of profession to go with the suit and handsome looks. So, like I was saying she meets Mr. Tall Dark and handsome they go out to dinner that night, Katie puts on  her  high heels and  her “freak ’em dress” as Beyonce would call it, and turns into a bit of a freak between the sheets  herself that’s all I’m sayin’ 🙂

I’m giving Call Me Cutie five wonderful stars as there is an element of fun and escapism, don’t we all wish there was an app to download and turn us into a hot woman? But there is also a great Mr. Tall Dark and Handsome and the ending… my god I totally never saw it coming. Yes, I blushed that Katie is somethin’ else.

Book Excerpt: Manners Cost Nothing! Release date 9.6.17 #amwriting #romance

None

Today’s WordPress writing prompt is the word none. Don’t you just hate people with no manners? Rude, dismissive, up their own backside kinda people. When it comes to manners they have none. *Pouts* yeah me too, I’m not a fan.

Let’s take a look at how it makes Yasmin feel, the main female character in book #2  Lover’s Retreat of my Romance Set in Paradise series. Remember that luke warm first encounter  she has with my hero Michael …. which by the end of the story turns red hot. Here ‘s their first encounter, it gets worse. Poor Yasmin! She’s only just arrived in Sri Lanka. Micheal as no manners, none what so ever. But I promise you by the end he will be your hero. I hope I’ve added another potential book boyfriend to my characters…

 

John’s muffled but cheerful voice vibrates around the minibus over the radio.

“Okay everyone this is it! We’re on our way to Hirkiketiya Bay beach where our retreat is located. We have a nice meal and some drinks lined up to break the ice. In the morning you’ll be greeted with the beautiful beach we’re based on for the next five days, just south of the main town. It’s clean, quiet and has some friendly waves for all you surfers. In the meantime sit back and enjoy the ride.”

A round of claps echo around the minibus as Yasmin’s fellow retreat goers express their excitement about Hirkiketiya Bay. Lowering her gaze to her lap she internally gives herself a high five. She’s done it, she broke loose to take the first steps toward moving forward with her life. Now all she has to do is try to integrate with her new found community of soul seekers, at the retreat over the next five days. She takes a deep breath as she turns her attention to the man sitting next to her. She takes in his scruffy looking appearance once more, as she decides if he’s approachable. He is in desperate need of a haircut. His jet black curly hair has out grown its tapered cut. He sports a tiny afro. His beard boarders his square jawline which could also do with a shave. His features are sharp. Behind his scruffiness his smooth full lips and almond shape eyes peek out. From his dress sense Yasmin guesses he’s around her age. He wears dark denim jeans and a black T-shirt with the iconic Nike swoosh icon on the front. Around his left wrist is a beaded brown ethic style bracelet.

“Hi, my name’s Yasmin.”

Yasmin offers her hand to the stranger. He looks up from his paperback and slowly looks her up and down. His expression appears to be one of surprise that she introduced herself.

“Hi.” Is all he says. He doesn’t accept Yasmin’s handshake and lowers his eyes back to his paperback. Yasmin’s breath catches in her throat as she sighs, he shrugged her off in a rather unfriendly way. She tries again to make friends.

“What’s your name?”

He turns back to her and licks his lips, this time he fixes Yasmin with a more friendly stare.

“Michael.”

“Nice to meet you Michael.”

He nods again and reverts his eyes to his paperback. He does a double side glance as he notices Yasmin still watching him and  then shakes his head.

“What are you reading? Anything interesting?”

“Stephen King… If you must know.”

“Oh wow, I love his books which––”

Michael cuts her off before she can finish her sentence.

“Jasmin, I don’t mean to be––”

Yasmin cuts in and meets his gaze.

“It’s Yasmin.”

There’s a moment’s silence between them as they lock eyes with annoyed expressions on their faces. Yasmin is surprised at his harsh tone of voice and how dismissive he is. Michael is impatient with Yasmin’s attempts to make small talk that he’d rather not have.

“Sorry, Yasmin. I don’t mean to be rude but I’d rather be left alone, if that’s okay with you.”

Michael’s response comes out more as a statement rather matter of fact, than a question or polite request. Yasmin pouts, nods her head and then lowers her lashes. She clears her throat.

“No problem.”

Is all she can say with slight embarrassment. She pulls out her phone and then places her earphones in each of her ears. She selects a complication of classical music by Beethoven and Mozart. As the minibus whizzes along the bumpy roads of Dickwella, Yasmin tries her best not to take offence from Michael’s rudeness. She stares out the window at the fast- moving scenery with a scowl on her face. The navy blue sky is alight with bright stars, the tall palm trees stand still in the humid night air. As John guides the minibus through the rural areas of Dickwella in the still of the night, Yasmin hopes her fellow retreat goers are more friendly than Michael. His unapproachable persona sends her into a state of panic. Has she made the right choice booking this retreat? Will she be welcomed? Plays on her mind.

Oh dear, how do these two actually figure out their differences?? More excerpts to follow!

Writing Prompt: Apprentice- Learning On the Job. 18+ reading! #amreading #romance #newrelease

via Daily Prompt: Apprentice

Apprentice

Today’s WordPress writing prompt word is apprentice. I like this word it could apply to  Detective Sebastian Garcia, the hero in book #1 on my Romance Set in Paradise series. He’s learning something new, having a new experience and a total apprentice learning “on the job.” Here’s an excerpt from Havana Heat. Over 18 only!!

Sebastian has experienced a variety women of all races and cultures sexually, but never a woman of Caribbean descent. Not because he was against it, quite the opposite. The opportunity just never presented itself until today. To Sebastian, Melinda is a picture of pure beauty, he admires her soft petite features as she relaxes with her eyes closed.

Leaning slightly more forward on his knees, he takes the plunge into a new experience as he bends his head between Melinda’s legs and tastes her intimately.  She tastes just as delightful as he imagines, he makes quick work of bringing her to a spine tingling climax.

Melinda’s body shudders against the hot sand, she grasps a rock to steady her climax. Melinda breathes deeply.

“Sebastian oh, wow.”

Sebastian giggles at the mention of his name, said in a deep breathy voice.

“Shhh, someone will hear you.”

He playfully teases Melinda and intensifies the touch between her legs, Melinda’s response is to simply close her eyes and enjoy the waves of pleasure running through her body.

Satisfied with a good job done Sebastian removes his wet boxer shorts filled with grainy sand, he then manoeuvres himself between Melinda’s legs.

On his knees with Melinda on her back in front of him he raises both of her legs, he then places both of them onto his shoulders, bent at the knees. Slowly he teases Melinda by running the tip of his fully erect penis up and down the entrance of her intimate area. He moans in a low tone and throws his head back, Sebastian continues to rock backward and forward stimulating her entrance with the tip of his penis. The pleasure for them both is intense, he can feel Melinda’s entrance become slick with her wetness in response to his stimulation….. TO BE CONTINUED.

Now, I could continue this scene  and post more of the chapter… but I won’t spoil the fun! Don’t worry it’s not all sex there is actually a very enjoyable story also. Just eleven days to go until release day. Havana Heat is on pre-sale now on Amazon, Smashwords, ibooks and Barnes and Noble.
