Gay Erotic Novella Unexpected by Sommer Marsden – Review by Booking It

Unexpected“Unexpected is a really great character study. Charlie and Giovanni are wonderful, believable, multi-dimensional characters. The novella has perfect pacing without any slow or fast portions. Actually, I found myself sad that the novella ended. I want more Charlie and Giovanni!” BookingIt Grade: A

Gay Erotic Novella Unexpected by Sommer Marsden – Review by Simply Erotic Reviews

Unexpected“Charlie’s mad week is a collection of love and misery as he falls in love with a man of his dreams and loses his baby, who owns his heart, to  Mariah who happens to be his best friend. With the sudden loss, he ends up having an emotional violent outburst. There are intense scenes of man love in this book but they are a beautiful addition to the story.” 4 out of 5

Erotic Novella Naughty Rendezvous by Victoria Blisse – Review by Lynn A Reynolds

Naughty Rendezvous“If you like erotic romances, you will definitely want to read this one.  If you don’t like reading BDSM, this may change your mind. It’s done very well and not “in your face” and it doesn’t dominate (sorry about the pun) the story. I can’t wait to read more of Victoria Blisse’s work.” 4.5 out of 5

Erotic Novella Naughty Rendezvous by Victoria Blisse – Review by Erotic Whispers

Naughty Rendezvous“The plot here is a love story with a twist, boy meets girl, boy spanks girl, and that’s just the start of this tale of submission, defiance, devotion and love. I enjoyed the development of the characters throughout the tale, the pacing was natural and had a really nice flow about it, you long for each new meeting and share the pain and pleasure of the pair you really do get drawn into the story, Everything comes out on the page and you share it all and that’s the hallmark of a talented character authoress. I eagerly looking forward to seeing the next two books and finding out just where things go for Joe and Leanne next.” 5 out of 5

Erotic Novella Naughty Rendezvous by Victoria Blisse – Review by Romantic Reads Book Reviews

Naughty Rendezvous“Once again, Victoria Blisse brings us a captivating novella of erotic exploration and real-life romance. Blisse artfully conveys the romantic and sensual side of BDSM. I’ve read scenes of BDSM that delved into the psychology of the lifestyle, and the dramatic moments of self-realization and release, but rarely have I read scenes of BDSM (admitably mild scenes) that were so sweet and romantic. This is a lovely piece and I’m anxious to read the rest in the trilogy.” 5 out of 5

Gay Erotic Novella Layover by Elizabeth Coldwell – Review by Man Oh Man Reviews

Layover“I love the easy writing style of Ms. Coldwell and it shines through in this hot and steamy novella… Ms. Coldwell writes extremely hot sex. I felt as if I was there watching like some lewd voyeur as I read this novella. She definitely has a way with words and knows how to maximize their usage. She whisked me to another place and after I had finished reading, I was left wanting more. I do hope she extends the story for these two. I think it would be well worth the read!” A+

Gay Erotic Novella Unexpected by Sommer Marsden – Review by Two Lips Reviews

Unexpected“The sex in this book is hotter than sin but it’s the storyline I won’t forget. The emotional outpouring Charlie projects kept me glued to the pages and made me want to read more. He’s a multi-layered character and it was great to read about them and watch him grow. Giovanni is the perfect man for him, I love when I can fall in love with a good story and Unexpected is definitely one going on my keeper shelf.” 5 out of 5

Xcite awards – nominations now open! #XciteBooks

Xcite Awards

Xcite Books, the UK’s largest erotic publisher, annual awards programme celebrates and recognises companies, reviewers, bloggers and sexperts who value and support the erotic fiction market.

Hazel Cushion, Managing Director at Xcite Books, explained the need for the awards “The internet and the advent of ebooks has completely changed the erotic fiction market and as yet there’s no recognition of this. Customers now have a wealth of review sites, author blogs and internet retailers to choose from so we wanted to highlight and celebrate the dedication of the people behind these.”

The following categories are included in the inaugural awards:

Best Internet Retail Site: The internet has opened up a whole new world of retail opportunities. This award celebrates those sites that offer a great service, a range of products, and an enjoyable online shopping experience.

Best Blog or Author Page: This category celebrates those that are using blogs to promote erotic writing. It could be an author who engages well with readers or a blogger who is passionate about reading erotica.

Best Reviewer: Reviewers can make or break a book and they can help hidden gems to get a larger audience. Good reviewers are trusted by their readership for their honest appraisals. This category is open to both print and internet reviewers.

Best Sexpert: Some people just really know their stuff when it comes to sex. A good sexpert can help save a relationship, or give readers the confidence to start a whole new one. Since Xcite Books are recommended by many sex therapists Xcite wants to acknowledge their important work.
