Burning, by J.M. Gregoire
Wow! Short but enticing! I can’t wait to read the rest and find out what happens!
While there’s not a whole lot of content to this prequel (it’s short), it really gets to the point and I found myself instantly connected to the characters. Gregoire does a great job of drawing you in, especially in a short space.
I highly recommend this short story, and am looking forward to reading the whole series! 5 Zs!
Confessions of a Sex Demon, by Jaye Shields
I’m giving this novella 4.5 Zs.
Lennox is a sexy blacksmith (who doesn’t love blacksmiths?) with a grudge against sex demons, and Zahra’s brother especially. So, in order to punish her brother, he goes after Zahra. There are two long, luscious days of torture for Zahra to endure before Lennox has a change of heart.
The story is extremely well written. Ms. Shield’s style is easy to read, enticing, exciting, and hot. The only reason I didn’t give it 5 Zs is because of the believability, and I’m not talking about the sex demons part. Lennox’s change of heart came very suddenly and I wish it had had more time to develop fully. As it is, I was left thinking, “Wait, what just happened?”
Great story, though, with interesting characters and a very sexy plot. I’m looking forward to reading the next two and I will be posting reviews on those as well!
