The straw that broke the camel's back...
Shameless Corruption - Robert Fanshaw

Shameless corruption is the third, and final book in Robert Fanshaw's Shameless series.

As with books 1 and 2, we follow Caroline and Robert across the globe and into some pretty 'out there' experiences.

This one didn't fail to deliver in the adventure stakes either. When Caroline finds herself indebted to Mr Nim and playing hooker for him in return for her mounting gambling debts... Well, it sure was an interesting ride. *puns totally intended!!*

The exotic countries, Singapore and Brazil, really were great backdrops to this story of lies, lust and high-stake loans.

Where the story lost me was the lack of feelings. I didn't get the same 'feel' from Caroline and Robert in this one. They felt like cardboard cutouts of previous characters. Minus 1 star.

Add this to the sometimes almost unbelievable story twists and the overly superior antagonist and, well, it left me wanting more from the closure to this series. Minus 1 star.

The story was also lacking the usual level of humor, which is a grievous wound to an already less impressive book. This was the straw that broke the camels back (or so they say) and has confirmed for me that while Robert can create some great work, perhaps two books were enough. Minus 1 star.

I would rate this as 2.5 stars, but I'm rounding up to 3.

A few things I noticed:

34% - What bothers me it (delete it, insert is) that they...
36% - ...sleep came close on(c)e or twice...

If you're interested in a wicked little tale of sexual tension, sexual exploration and sexual embarrassment, try Robert's Shameless Series today!
Shameless Exposure - Robert Fanshaw

Book #2 in the Shameless series by Robert Fanshaw, sees Caroline and Robert getting deeply involved with a number of sexy, naughty and tantalising situations. Together and separately, they manage to make their way through these situations until the climax (pun totally intended) of the story.

I absolutely loved the humour of this book. It had me laughing out loud at numerous occasions (especially Caroline's antics with the soccer match).

I loved the interactions between the men and women, and women and women, and men and men in this book. So many combinations of lovers, it was a true mixed delight. The sinfully sexy naughty scenes were quick and light, but also deviously described enough to draw the reader into them.

Why then, does this not have 5 out of 5? Well it comes down to the slightly unrealistic situations. I found them a little hard to grasp, hard to believe they'd occur, and even harder to think that people would blindly enter into them. This didn't take too much away from the story, as you can see with my rating, but it was enough to make me drop a star.

If you're interested in a wicked little tale of sexual tension, sexual exploration and sexual embarrassment, try Robert's Shameless Series today! Shameless Ambition was a delicious mix of sexy scenarios. Shameless Exposure is a wicked tale of sexual exploration and deceit all wrapped up in one of the most bizarre scenes I think I've ever read about, group masturbation really is something I'd never thought about before. (You'll certainly learn something new with this book!). And I intend to devour Shameless Corruption in the very near future to see how Robert brings this story to a close.

I noticed a couple of things:

29% - ...stream of new hot water to (replace to with so) that it circulated...
89% - ...I've been removed from then (delete the n) case.

Puppy Love of an episode of Real Housewives of Orange County?
Puppy Love - Ana Vincent

Puppy Love is an interesting tale. Kirra is our female protagonist who took in stray dog, Phil 12 months prior. She's living in a little country area in her parents old place and takes in injured wildlife. She's a nature sprite type, independent and strong willed and repairing her heart after a bad relationship.

Enter, Brock, our male love interest. He plays two parts in this story - the amazingly handsome sex-god who Kirra wants to jump into bed with, and the villain.

He's the head of the corporation who's trying to buy her land and develop the local area for a hotel/resort. Brock was an interesting character, I liked the different look at what childhood can impart upon our adult ideals.

Brock was frustrating and pig-headed, cold and tactless, yet I liked him.

I could have done without the smoochy baby-talk to Phil, the dog, I felt it smacked of cheesiness and felt overdone. I had images of:


Which of course, is at odds to how we're supposed to see Kirra as a character. It didn't fit. Had this weird inconsistancy been rectified, I would have easily given this book a 4-4.5 star rating.

The sexy scenes were racy and steamy, certainly some of the best I've read in a while.


After a recent spate of books that needed a bit of editor TLC, this one was a welcome relief!

One thing I noticed:

80% - ...you just blew you(r) pay...

A jumble of genres...
Money for Blood - Darry Fraser

Money for blood is a jumble of genres. It doesn't quite fit into romance, because the two love interests spend more time fighting themselves and bickering with each other that the romance barely gets much mention at all.

Add to that, the mystery and adventure that crops up with routine regularity, and you would be forgiven for thinking this was anything else but a romance.

Joseph, our male lead (and resident heartthrob with a bit of a past) is all sex-on-a-stick gorgeous. He's young, sexy, confident, and did I mention he happens to be a multi-millionaire? No? Well, he is.

But ladies, don't let that big number cause a big issue, he's down to Earth too! 

Before you begin lining up to get your hands on him, ladies, you need to know that his family aren't as delightful. And, he's set his eyes on Cloudy.

Cloudy (or Clodagh Bannon as she's really named) is anything but your usual romance leading lady.

She's a prickly, emotional mess of a woman, who has a past full of hurt and betrayal. She's hardened her heart and made a successful business of her own. Despite not really having much in common with Cloudy, I liked her. Even if she made stupid decisions sometimes.

Her best friend, Sophie, was brilliant. I have a friend quite like her. It was great to see a strong female supporting character in a romance.

Unlike any romance I've read before, and set in a stunning Australian island, Money for Blood should see most readers coming away with something they enjoyed.

A few things I noticed:

9% - copy and paste of Cloudy/Joseph meeting and description. This should be slightly different as it's from her POV.

15% - Ten minuteslater (insert space)
...growing.Before (insert space)

60% - ...as if a vacuum has (delete has, insert had) sucked...

A man for all seasons. It is probably not a book for all seasons.
A Man for All Seasons - Jenny Brigalow

A man for all seasons. It is probably not a book for all seasons. 

Let's start with our hero and heroine. Mr Chad Cherub travels over to England to meet with a business partner (Wally Driscoll) to make a deal on a horse stud for his Australian ranch/property.

While staying with Wally, Chad meets his stunningly beautiful daughter, Seraphim (can you see a theme here with the names?) who he his immediately attracted to.

Aside from their somewhat cheesy names, these characters initially appear cliche and boring. Both stunning to look at, attracted to each other, yet both hiding secrets from each other. They are naturally drawn together by an incident on Chad's property back in Australia and as things spiral out of control, life changing decisions are made. 

More care needs to be taken with physical details, both characters had changing hair colour. This was rather distracting and an easily rectified error.

Surprisingly, despite the ever increasing drag of cliché, I found that once the story made its way back to Australia, my enjoyment of the story rose. The beautiful descriptions of the Australian outback were well done. It felt as if Jenny was recreating a property she has actually been to.

I enjoyed the day-to-day outback life Seraphim and Chad experienced together. I would have liked more on that. The story was just getting really good, when the most expected thing happened. There were a few unexpected twists that accompanied it, but I was left somewhat underwhelmed.

I am longing for a romance with a normal everyday hero and heroine, not these stunning underwear models in disguise.

Also, this was the poorest showing of editing in all the books I've received from Steam eReads. It was a let down.

A few things I noticed: 

2% - He could (have) just as easily been...

4% - how does something glisten softly? As far as I know, glistening is silent...

Concrete nouns are needed here. There are too many adjectives and adverbs for my liking.

6% - ...barely set on (delete on) eyes on the man.

22% - She wanted to hop of(f) Pollyanna,

36% - ...this irked him (to?) no end...

38% - You're (Your) room is the third...

43% - ...and a (pair of) long black boots.
