Peter: I've always felt
like I was saving myself for her.
Not that way. Not sexually. Saving my life. Trying to be smart about what I do.
Actually giving a damn. Because I matter to her. It’s something I’ve never had
-- anyone who cares like she does -- and it’s absolutely amazing.
She’s amazing, this very good girl I can not have. Her dad made that clear the
night he caught us together, but that’s not enough to stop me from me from wanting
Still, it would be a completely selfish move on my part to draw her any deeper
into my life. I just heard my mom’s getting out of prison early. Not for good
behavior. Because of overcrowding. Life was always crazy with mom. If she comes
back, if she wants me back, my life turns to crap. I know that, and at sixteen,
I don’t think I can do anything about it, except maybe run as far and fast as I
can. Even Dana, my very good girl, won’t be able to save me.

Review: Seven Nights to Surrender - Book #1 Art of Passion Series - Jeanette Grey - November 2015
Seven Nights to Surrender, I picked up and was like I'll give this one a go and see how I enjoy it as I wasn't sure if I was in a romance / erotica mood as some of them are so blah but OMG I loved Seven Nights to Surrender by Jeanette Grey , it actually proved to be one of the hottest erotica books I have read in a long time as parts of it turned me on. We are transported to Paris where we meet Kate who has just completed her degree in Art and is now trying to find herself and her "style" in art before she starts grad school. Growing up Kate has always been told she was useless and not encouraged with her talents, which I could reasonate with Kate as I have had a similar upbringing with my father. During one of her early days in Paris, she is robbed and Rylan - the handsome stranger comes to her rescue. He is looking for something or in this case someone to fill his empty void and seeing as she is a tourist, she has captured his attention. However, as the book goes on we can see that Kate is more important in Rylan's book than a quick lay for the week as she inspires him to be someone else , to care. She brings out a side of him, which he thought was well-hidden - a side which has him revealing stories from his past and childhood. Though, as readers of these sort of books and stories , we can see where it's hidden as Rylan hasn't told Kate everything about his past - especially the part where he is very wealthy. When Kate does find out she feels betrayed as she believes he played her and that she was some sort of game for him . Can Rylan prove to Kate that the last week has been an eye-opener for him and he wants to spend more time with her ? Or is it too late as her week in Paris is up and now Kate must return back to her "real life" ? Erotica Fans : A heads up as the scenes in this book are well-written and steamy and are sure to turn you on. I am now looking forward to reading the next part in the Art of Passion series by Jeanette Grey as I think I have found a new favourite Erotica Author.

Review: Until You Came Along - Kshitij - December 2015
This book I grabbed as it sounded interesting with a school reunion , which I have always been fascinated with as it does make you wonder if you went to a school reunion and saw all your classmates from ten years ago - What would you be able to say to them ? What have you achieved in the last ten years ? Are you still the same type of person or have you changed ? For three years , Estella and Alyssa were the best of friends, they connected immediately and in a way became self-reliant on each other , they were inseparable as they both attended the same University. The book starts seven years later and we learn that Estelle and Alyssa haven't spoken in Seven years as when Estelle got back from her Christmas break , Alyssa was gone without a word and for the next seven years it has been complete silence and now she has left a voicemail on Estelle's answerphone RSVP'ing to the school reunion. The novel then flips back to the past starting with the day the pair first met, through university loves and friendships, dreams and goals right up to that fateful date three years later that caused a domino effect which would lead them eventually not talking. What has Alyssa been doing the past seven years and why the silent treatment ? I did enjoy this book, but I did also feel a little let-down at what Alyssa had been doing and why she left as it made me think , if Alyssa and Estelle were as close as the author had portrayed them , then I do not think that it would have eventuated in seven years silence unless there was a good reason and I think Alyssa's explanation was a little weak for my liking and reasoning.
