They said write what you know so that's what I did. I wrote dirty, I wrote erotic, I wrote the truth. And then they called me a liar. But it's not me who's lying, it's them. Our story isn't for everyone. It's not even for us. So if you're looking for the fairy tale and the stupid prince on his dumb white horse, move along. You've got a hold of the wrong book. This is not your story, this is not your life, and this is not your opportunity to dip your frightened little toe into the dark pool of water and "try new things" and then pull it out and decide... #NotForMe.

I’v been a Julie fan for a long time. So I hate to say this but frankly I found this story boring. I didn’t feel the chemistry between the characters. I like Julie’s with a heavy dose of eroticism. This seems like more of a suspense or thriller rather than a steamy erotic romance. There are multiple characters and none seem fully developed - not like The Company or Rook series. I also found Connor’s insecurity off putting. The conflicts seem forced and the story underdeveloped.

Trapped in a crevice after a carriage accident, Amanda Downy is not sure whether she'll ever see the light of day again. With her tongue loosened by a fellow passenger's flask of brandy, she reveals several well-guarded secrets about her life as a governess at Colonel Watson's residence, including the fact that she falsified her references to gain her employment. The Colonel soon learns that in spite of the deceitful manner with which she obtained the position, Miss Downy is an excellent governess and is much loved.

I really like the characters but wish something was happening. But this is not an erotic romance. There is some nonsexual disciplinary spanking but no romance. I’m less than an hour from the end and nothing of substance has happened between the main characters. I’m confused.

Don’t believe reviews! Check Goodreads! I’ve never seen such blatantly fake reviews. Note that none discuss the actual content of the book and you’re about to see why. This is exclusively FF which isn’t my thing and not advertised BUT more importantly there is drinking of urine - and more than once - actually multiple times. How much piss can a person drink I ask you? Even more disturbing- yes it gets worse - is a character’s discussion of her wonderful affair with her biological father. If that’s not enough, the narration is horrible! Terrible attempt at a French accent. And male voices sound like 12 year old girls. I can’t believe audible even sells this. Who is their buyer?!? I’ve reached my return limit, so I’m stuck with this $14.00 scam. This isn’t just a waste of money, it’s like ringing out piss-soaked bills and dribbling the ”amber pee water” in your mouth. I didn’t finish but I wouldn’t be shocked if there’s feces play. I’m not easily offended at all but just having this in my library offends me. For gods sake someone provide a &$@& warning or 5.

You do that, and I'll give you this." Nila Weaver's family is indebted. Stolen, taken, and bound not by monsters but by an agreement written over 600 years ago, she has no way out. She belongs to Jethro as much as she denies it.

I love Pepper Winters. She is one of my favs. Real and complex characters. I love Will M Watt just as much. I can’t imagine Jet, etc. with any other voices. It’s impressive that he can successfully pull off 4 very different male characters. His inflection, tempo are spot on. He is underrated compared to the more popular male romance narrators.

There was a lot of drudgery. The story isn’t deep enough for the amount of inner dialogue in the book. When the main characters finally came together it was with very little fanfare. (ie we had a 1 min romp now we sleep together and have hours long foreplay). Um k. No heat, passion. Little chemistry. I’ve had a hard time getting through this author’s books but I keep trying bc of the reviews. Giving up

I had such high hopes. Unfortunately, it fell flat and flaccid. Not steamy. Not hot. The sex scenes are copied and pasted and uninspiring. And it’s not MMF if you’re wondering. Why don’t they all come with that info up front. Why make me guess? I would skip this one

What the ever loving _________!!!!! Oh my god. I’m _______ing traumatized. Twin incest. But it gets better. Identical twin incest. And even better. Identical twin incest with adult diapers, pacies, bottles and cribs no less. Twins acting as “daddy” and “baby” jacking each other off. I didn’t go further so don’t know how far it goes. Did the other reviewers miss the fact that these are identical twin brothers tasting each other’s cum? I’m at a complete and utter loss

THIS IS NOT A ROMANCE. This is the typical lady detective on the case with what should be a love interest. I’ve liked some of Celia’s other work but this was just boring for me. The plot didn’t keep me interested past the 4th chapter. I didn’t feel chemistry. I skipped forward just to see where it would go and the one romantic scene occurred in the last hour. I feel bad for saying this but this isn’t worth the $1.99 Amazon price much less a precious credit.

Um. Um. Um. Are you reading this? If you are, I need your help. I was at a party; I was running; I fell. And get this - this is the part you'll never believe - I fell down a rabbit hole. Like Alice in those old books. Except in those books, there wasn't blood everywhere. In those books, the characters weren't all male, attractive, and interested in me.
