Paula's Place Collection"- James Wood

My Rating ★★★ 1/2


This is Paula's story, the entire three books of "Paula's Place" complete in one edition. It includes 'Seduction': A steamy, explicit erotic romance of sexual fantasies comes real. Fate brings Paula back to her hometown, where she meets her dark handsome neighbour. 'Surrender': Paula is drawn into her lover's world of domination and submission, where sensation and lust commingle with intimacy and trust. As Paula surrenders her body to pleasure, she knows she is losing her heart. 'Submission': Paula struggles to reconcile her feelings with her concern that things are going too fast. As her slide towards bliss only gathers pace, how will their love affair end? Does she even have a choice, or is her submission complete?

 It is a graphic and explicit work of erotic D/s fiction intended for adults only.

My thoughts:

This was a really short trilogy of novellas each one was about 40 or so pages.

While reading this book it was like being taken back in time. Just by the way that Paula talks and reacts. If it wasn’t for the modern day conveniences she mentions then I could swear we were in a different time place. I wasn’t so used to the old language that they use, such things as “going steady”. It was interestingly a good read after you get into it.

Paula leaves an unfulfilling relationship and moves back home, where she peeps in on their author neighbor and is drawn in by his sexy lifestyle. She knows what she is craving and goes snooping around, the neighbor’s house and when he catches her inside his house He decides he must have her to dinner. With her author friend she learns to explore herself and what she wants, most of all she knows he will make her fantasy’s come true.

This was a very good novella series, Paula learns to explore herself as well as her desires, and she learns submission and also how to surrender her fears.

I didn’t really like Paula at first, I found her to be a little hard on herself, until I realized that she was content. She had fears of her relationship and not having a career. She also had her fears of her author friend’s appetite.

It was a good story of a woman wanting to explore the natural desires that I’m sure more women have then we know. She learns how to be strong and supported, she also learns that just because you surrender doesn’t mean it’s a bad thing.

Surprisingly I enjoyed it.

"Dream On" Anne Conley

 My Rating: 4 Stars

Alyssa and Dalton lead completely opposite lives. She's a frustrated single mother, unappreciated schoolteacher, and completely unfulfilled woman. He's been living the crazy life for way too long, and doesn't know how to make himself stop. They just keep going in their separate existences until the dreams start. Then they realize that there is so much more out there than the lives they are currently living.

Warning: Some content not suitable for less than 18 years of age.

My Thoughts:

This Book was an unexpected surprise. It was described to me as a contemporary romance.

Well I am here to tell you, it could be considered contemporary romance, but highly unlikely. While reading this book it was like the author started it out fully intending it to be a contemporary, then changed her mind. It was exactly what I like in a book. It was well written and had a nice flow to it.

Alyssa is a single mother of two kids who doesn’t know how to take care of her own needs, her ex husband believed that sex was for procreation only, and in my opinion that doesn’t sound very fun. She is strong and compassionate and she seems to be pretty good at her job. Her only thing is that she is kind of a prude; she is still letting her ex husband dictate her life and she just doesn't know how to have fun. She is the type of girl that you just want to scream, “ what the hell is the matter with you” at. One night she starts dreaming of the hunky guy known as Dalton.

Dalton is a bartender, in Dallas; he is fun and doesn’t really care what he does. He’s a man whore. With that being said when I started this book, I imagined Dalton would something like Jensen Ackles (Dean on supernatural), Yum right?
Well he is the exact opposite of Alyssa, he is confident and sexy, and he knows how to get what he wants.

He is forced to come home after his dad gets sick, and he dreams of Alyssa too. They realize that they are both in the same town, and it just gets better after they meet, I’m not going to go in to much detail about this, but the book sure does heat up.

This book was a very good, humorous, steamy read. Definitely should give this one a try.
