Her Twisted Pleasures (The Twisted Mosaic #1) by Amelia James Review
Her Twisted Pleasures - Amelia James

Not much of a plot, pretty much all sex.  If you are looking for a book of hot, steamy sex, then this is the book for you.  I debated about whether to categorize it as dark erotica, but I really don't think it is even though there isn't a HEA ending (at least in this book).  It does have some dark points to it, but it isn't anything near what I normally call dark.

Doctor Who: Summer Falls
Doctor Who: Summer Falls - James Goss, James Goss Read this review, and many more on my blog October Tune!

Those that watch Doctor Who will probably recognize this as the book Artie (one of the kids Clara was looking after) was reading, in the Bells of Saint John. Written by Amelia Williams, the Eleventh Doctor's companion. I was excited when I found out they actually released this story!

Summer Falls is about Kate, who wants do 'Get Something Done' in the last week before school starts. She becomes friends with her strange neighbours, a man who calls himself the Curator (which is obviously the Doctor), his cat, and a boy named Armand, whose father 'kills people'. Then, she finds a mysterious painting, and a ring, and then suddenly, it's winter, in September!

It's a very short story, only about 60 pages long, but I enjoyed it a lot. When I was on chapter nine, I remembered that in the episode Clara told Artie that 'Chapter eleven's the best, you'll cry your eyes out', so I was a tiny bit scared of what was going to happen. And indeed, the things that happened in the (small) chapter were sad (though I didn't exactly cry my eyes out, haha).

The story reminded me of a mixture of Coraline, the Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe, and the Snowmen (the last two are Doctor Who Christmas specials), because of the cat who could suddenly talk in the winter world (Coraline), the winter world itself (Doctor, Widow, Wardrobe) and the Lord of Winter (the ice governess from the Snowmen). But that didn't make it a lesser story, in fact, I enjoyed it even more!

Because I don't know what to say about this short story anymore, here's two of my favourite quotes from it:

"Magic?" Kate snorted. "There is no such thing? Is there?" "Magic?" Barnabas (the Curator) shrugged. "Why not? Magic is cool!"

"[...] But a smell hung in the air. The smell of earth after rain. She sniffed, and somehow, oddly, she knew that she would never see the mysterious Barnabas ever again."

A nice short story, by one of my favourite companions (of course it wasn't really written by her, but shhh!)

Her Twisted Pleasures - Amelia James I loved this book. Each character was twisted and damaged in their own way, but they fit together beautifully. I hated that Will and Alex used Talia and lied to her about their arrangement. I thought that Will and Alex got what they deserved when she left them both. I was sad at the end when none of them ended up together, I like a HEA ending. I can't wait to read the next book and hope they can get back together.

HUGE Trashy Summer Giveaway

When trying to think of ways to describe the magnitude of this giveaway, I immediately tossed the trendy but overused word 'epic' and looked for something different. Big wasn't big enough. F**king enormous would get me blocked, so I decided to go with a classic: HUGE. Or Frelling Huge. I can get away with that. How big is frelling huge? Take a look at the list of trashy prizes:

Mug

 

1 Signed copy Tell Me You Want Me
1 Signed copy Secret Storm
1 Signed copy Her Twisted Pleasures and Their Twisted Love
1 Signed copy The Devil Made Me Do It
2 Amelia James coffee mugs
2 Amelia James tote bags
6 Chocolate bars (3 each)
6 Chocolate bar & Bookmark set (1 each)

Monumental enough for you? That's 20 winners! (And since I'm running it the entire month of June, size matters. ;) )

 

a Rafflecopter giveaway

 

 

tell-me1 cover

 

AND... the epicness (sorry, had to be done) doesn't end there. My most popular erotic romance novel, Tell Me You Want Me is only 99 cents at Amazon and Barnes & Noble all month long! Now tell me that doesn't deserve a massive celebration!
