What if all those brooding teenage vampires, hunky 19th-century aristocrats, and gorgeous dominating billionaires on your Kindle came to life as real people?
Holly Pritchett is a high school English teacher by day, and avid reader by night. Romance, erotica, sci-fi, horror, and more, Holly's Kindle is packed with thousands of titles and she reads a new novel every day.
But when she returns to her hometown for her 10-year reunion and meets up with an old friend who dabbles in witchcraft, Holly's Kindle becomes much more than an eReader. No longer a passive observer to the many stories from the Amazon store, Holly becomes an active participant in the books on her Kindle, living the experiences of the characters.
That hot billionaire with a troubled past? Now it's Holly who's donning the leather and lace so he can teach her how to live. That beautiful werewolf with the heart of gold? Now Holly is the one who will help him find his true self.
For Holly, life with a magic eReader is a dream come true, until one domineering billionaire takes too keen an interest in her, and the fantasies on her Kindle start spilling over into reality.
Part romance, part adventure, and part satire of literary culture in a digital age, Holly and Her Naughty eReader is a novel for anyone who ever got so lost in a good book they forgot where reality ended and fantasy began.
WARNING: Holly and Her Naughty eReader contains intensely steamy scenes with a domineering billionaire who just happens to be a wizard, intensely goofy scenes where Holly stumbles into the body of a horny werewolf, and a cameo from the man who forever changed reading as we know it.

My favorite things are my family and my books! Depending on the day, not in that order. :)
I have to say that I had high hopes for this book. The description of the book was interesting. The problem was the book kept going on and on about stupid stuff for half of the story. The whole concept of the book was really cool. I just think that the author could've done a better job developing the main characters.
"Surprisingly good, but not erotica"
I found this in the erotica section and the plot looked interesting. Let's get this straight (pardon the pun), Holly and Her Naughty eReader is not erotica. There are erotic elements to the story, but if you're expecting hot and heavy sex, go elsewhere.
What you do get is a pretty reasonable fantasy story about a woman who gets an "unscheduled supernatural upgrade" to her Kindle Fire. This results in her Kindle letting her inhabit the bodies and minds of the characters in the stories, and she has something of a torrid time in a Fifty Shades knock-off novel called 'His Golden Shackles.' Of course, it all goes horribly wrong, but it's got a happy ending... and I really doubt I'm giving anything away in saying that.
The book starts strongly. Holly comes across a little like Jane Jameson from the 'Nice Girls' books by Molly Harper. The humour is similar and I like that kind of thing. The latter half of the book, as things begin to get crazier, is not so good, but still engaging. It starts reading like fan-fiction much more as the resolution unfolds. A shame, but not too damaging.
Worth a read, just don't expect rampant werewolf action or something as Holly delves into her new found fantasy worlds.
