Back in June I downloaded a few FREE short books for those times when I needed some extra incentive before bed 😉 Here are the quick reviews:
His Gift by Gillian Colbert: This was a quick 10-15 minute FREE read about a Dom giving his sub what she had been having fantasies about, another man, for their anniversary. It was not for him, but for her. It was disappointingly short, but I enjoyed what there was of it. A quick little read to get in the mood 😉
It ends around the 50% mark and the rest is a preview for another book that sounds pretty good. 4 stars, 5 Heat
Melody In Lingerie by Imogen Linn: This short freebie was hard to rate. At times it was super hot. It’s a sexy hot fantasy. But a few things were just a little dirtier than I can deal with.
Melody thinks she is a dowdy, bookworm college student who thinks she is too skinny (blah blah,) but her secret passion is lingerie. A sexy, older dominating man approaches her in a lingerie store under the guise of buying lingerie for his wife and needing help with her size. They then go into a fitting room where he completely dominates her and makes her into his “dirty little slut”.
It was a really hot fantasy at first, but then he pushed her way too hard for my tastes in a few spots, but she supposedly liked it. (practically choking her during a BJ forcing her to cry and making her lick him off after anal? Eeew–can’t you get sick from that?) Plus, this supposed “innocent” certainly knew exactly how to turn into the perfect little slutty sub.
2.5 for story (the premise is a hot fantasy), 5 for heat, but take away 2 for grossness.
Help Wanted (Fantasy Heights Book 1) by Meg Silver: This was one erotic read and written pretty well also! A young woman gets jilted by her fiancé, and decides she needs a change. She applies for a job at a resort that provides sexual fantasies. This one is free, then the rest of the series is short 99 cent books, and it is a really good, HOT beginning. I would love to take a trip to this resort. It is written in a bit of a detached way, so may not be for everyone, but I, for one, found it to be a great half hour bedtime story.

4 stars for story, 5 for heat
Connections by Selena Kitt: This was a bit of a strange, sad book about a super smart girl who has withdrawn from the world and for 2 years the only way she reaches out to people is by calling, listening to them say “hello? Hellooooo?” and then hanging up. One day she gets a guy who begins to talk to her. They develop a relationship that finally culminates with a sexy meet-up. They both love Bob Dylan. That was the best part to me.
Story 2 stars, Heat 3.5
Brie’s First Day of Submissive Training by Red Phoenix: One of my friends grabbed this when I first put it up and keeps talking about it, so I finally just read it. I was pleasantly surprised! This was a short bedtime story about a young lady training to be a submissive. More sex than a real BDSM training program, but very hot, and I downloaded number 2 immediately. Each subsequent book is $.99. See the series reading order here.
Story 4 stars, Heat 5
