Some Like It Hot

I have always been a fan of erotica romance, but since I read Fifty Shades Of Grey, I have a renewed interest in the genre. Here a few of the titles steaming up my Kindle Fire.


When Andrea Langley takes a job as personal assistant to hot action hero, Mark Cannon, she finds out the beloved movie star has some kinky habits in the bedroom. She decides this would be the perfect opportunity to write an expose' on him and finally get promoted from secretary to reporter at the tabloid she works for.

What Andrea didn't expect is that she would start falling for her dominant boss and must face the decision to either tell Mark the truth or keep her secret cover. Either way, Andrea could end up losing more than her job. She could end up losing the man is she falling in love with.

Hollywood Spanked is more than just an erotic romance. Sure it has some pretty hot BDSM scenes, but it also has a great storyline. It kept me reading with anticpation. I couldn't wait to find out if mark owuld find out Andrea's secret and if so, where that would leave  them in their relationship.

Shoshanna Evers has once again mixed the perfect blend of eroticism and romance to keep readers wanting more.


Ok, I'll be honest. I had not heard of James "The Wingman" Holeva until several weeks ago when he started following me on Twitter, plugging this very book and telling dirty jokes. I decided to check out the link to the book's Amazon page and was intrigued.
Now this is not exactly what most people who refer to as erotic romance, but I included it because I really enjoyed it and besides, It's my blog, so my choice.

James Holeva is a comedian, writer and actor who has an uncanny ability to charm the panties off of just about any woman. He's good-oh, he's good. I have seen his flirty banter with the ladies on Twitter and Facebook and even will admit that I have been taken in by his good looks and outgoing personality. Obviously I had to buy his book. (See? It worked.)

The Wingman Chronicles is a semi-autobiographical account of the many sexual encounters Holeva has had with women in just about anyplace. Hotels, bathroom stalls, cars, even his own grandfather's funeral. No place is off-limits.

I wasn't sure what to expect from this book but found myself laughing one minute and getting turned on the next. At one point I had to put my Kindle down just to catch my breath.

James can be crude at times (ok, most times) but he is honest and entertaining. I feel like I even saw a softer side of him near the end.

Filled with down and dirty tales that will entertain men and women alike, The Wingman Chronicles is a sexy, funny read that will keep you entertained and wanting more.


Although this hot little story definitely fits it's title, it was still enjoyable on a day where I needed something to get me through a rough morning.

A short story about two high school seniors who cut class to go off for a "quickie", what it lacked in length, kit fully compensated for in content.

Pick it up while it's free-there's nothing to lose and only pleasure to be gained. After all, most times it's not the size but the content that really matters.

All of the above are available to download on Amazon.com and The Wingman Chronicles is now also available in paperback as well.
