CUPID ONLY RINGS TWICE by Sam Cheever
Rating: 4 – A Pack Howl
Sexual 2 – Steamy
Rori overhears the “office jerk” make a bet with his posse that he can make her cry when she reads a note that he has written. This is a delightful and sexy story of competition not only in the office, but between a cupid and a demon. Those of us “young” enough to remember the good ole’ days of the drive-ins will chuckle when reading. . .
REUNITED by Helen Hardt
Rating: 3 – One Good Howl
Sexual: 1 – Flirty
Brett and Kathryn were the polar opposites in high school but he needed a tutor and well, she was the one appointed. Circumstances forced them apart. Years later, they are united, divorced, single parents and find their way back to one another. I like the way Ms. Hardt uses flashback in the story to show the history between Brett and Kathryn in high school. A heartwarming story of getting a second chance at love.
IT’S SWEETEST FORM by Xakara
DNF – I really did try with this one. Tessa is an author who uses Eaton (vampire) and Brahm (shifter) to block her scenes in the erotic novels she writes. There is also a ghost named Agnes involved somehow. I stuck with all of the non-sex – ménage blocking until Brahm has an out-of-body experience as Agnes. Not for me.
MASQUERADE by Sloane Taylor
Rating: 4 – A Pack Howl
Sexual: 2 – Steamy
Clancy is on the vacation of her dreams in Venice when a handsome stranger sweeps her off of her feet and makes all of her wishes for the perfect vacation come true. An enchanting tale that takes you on a mini-tour of Venice via the romance of Clancy and her dashing Vittore.
