Book Description

April 22 2010
Steamy encounters of every flavour are on offer to guests at the Hotel Luxe Royale.
     I have always been drawn to hotels. I love their anonymity. The hotel does not care what you do, or with whom.

     The Hotel Luxe Noir is a haven for hedonistic liaisons. From brief encounters in the bar to ménages in the elevator, young Sophie Martin has seen it all since she started on reception. But as she witnesses the dark erotic secrets of the staff and guests can she also master her own desires...?

     Welcome to the Hotel Luxe Noir -- discretion assured, satisfaction guaranteed.

5.0 out of 5 stars On Demand March 2 2010
By Willow
Format:Paperback
I absolutely loved this book! It was so much fun. Justine Elyot is a hoot and she makes you laugh.

One of the things that's so different about this story is that while it's a series of sexy escapades that happen at a fancy hotel, it's mostly about Sophie Martin, the receptionist. Sophie is definitely a free spirit, willing to embrace her naughty side, and she gets into all kinds of intriguing scenarios. I actually got quite caught up in Sophie's story, wondering what would happen to her and her two men. The end was electrifying.

The side stories are awesome too. Most erotica books have a bunch of stories that are all the same. This is not true with "On Demand." Each story is very different and they all are spiced with Ms. Elyot's very funny sense of humor. I was grinning from ear to ear!

This is a fabulous book! I can't wait for her second book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of both worlds March 2 2010
By Erotic Elf - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
As another reviewer has noted, one of the great things about this brilliantly crafted erotic package is its clever use of continuity to link a collection of stories. The result here is the best of both worlds: while each item brings the satisfying reading experience of a self-contained tale that scoops us up, takes us for a super-sexy ride, and deposits us back on terra firma some twenty pages later, our overall investment in the individual characters and the community they collectively represent gradually builds, as it does in a conventional novel. Most significantly, the narrator moves back and forth from the center of the action to the sidelines, functioning at times as the immediate protagonist and at other times as raconteuse. The effect is that we get to feel both the intimacy of being privy to her own adventures and psychology and the voyeuristic thrill of watching her open the curtain on the erotic activities of others (as well as observing her peripheral roles in the lives of other characters, which adds further insight to our understanding of her personality and her world). Each time we return to the thread of Sophie's personal plot, she feels more like an old friend--an exceptionally passionate, adventurous, and self-aware friend--and by the end of the book we care about her as much as we would about any novel protagonist.

In exploring the variety of what can go on behind closed doors in a big hotel--not to mention in less concealed parts of the building--these stories do justice not only to the sexual possibilities but also to the interpersonal complexities. And in addition to the wealth of sensuous erotic narrative, Elyot's collection offers plenty of wit, emotional engagement--and surprises! Through her evident dedication to making this book everything an erotic story collection can be, this talented author has left no stone unturned.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Delicious Feb. 2 2010
By Viper - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I've read many, many Black Lace books in my time. Books about bad girls and good girls and weird girls, books set in ancient times and Victorian times and totally non-existent times.

But seriously, I've never read a Black Lace book like this. It's both a short story collection and a novel, of sorts- we're given enough to care deeply about the main heroine, but she also spends a lot of time dissecting (delightfully) the sex lives and kinks and tricks of the various visitors to the Hotel, so you can dip into it at various points, or gobble it up all at once.

I'm afraid I had to gobble it up, because each teasing vignette left me wanting more, while frantic to find out about Sophie and her continuing storyline. She gives the book what it needs- a sense of exploration, of a real heroine trying to understand each new naughty thing that the Hotel's guests are indulging in.

Which makes her getting sucked in all the sweeter, of course.

But I don't think saying so really covers what Ms. Elyot has achieved, here. She's used an old skool Black Lace setting, but re-invigorated it and re-evaluated it and made it completely real. She's delivered a book that is absolutely chock-full of wit and humour, without losing the steaming heat. She's written a perfectly erotic book, and yet somehow allowed in romantic elements that don't lessen the impact of that eroticism.

And I want to bonk all of its heroes. Which when it comes down to brass tacks, is the highest accolade I can give. Why aren't you reading this book, already?

5.0 out of 5 stars A Bundle of Fun and Entertaining Sexiness Sept. 20 2010
By Emerald - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This tightly themed short story collection captivated me immediately. The basic premise of the book is one of the sexiest things I can imagine: a woman who likes to hang out at the bar of a posh hotel and pick up men gets hired to work at the hotel's reception desk, offering the opportunity to continue her extracurricular exploits after hours! This setup, introduced in the first story, could hardly have been more appealing to me. I was hooked--and the rest of the book certainly lived up to its promise.

The aforementioned hotel receptionist, Sophie, is the main narrator throughout the collection. I much enjoyed the aspect of having a common narrator throughout the book, which, though each story is self-contained, I experienced as giving it a novel-like feeling. As a reader, I liked the familiarity this continuity prompted me to develop in relation to Sophie, many of the other characters, and even the setting (the posh hotel) throughout the work.

In addition to this book's considerable entertainment capacity, I found not only the sex but also the tension and context surrounding it (or even, in some cases, surrounding the lack thereof) intriguing, compelling, and unquestionably hot. Overall I found On Demand a bundle of fun packed full of entertaining sexiness, and I highly recommend it as a deeply engaging, personable, entertaining, and very hot read.
5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! Aug. 21 2013
By A.M. Hartnett - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This really was a unique read. The anthology style was framed by the experiences of the main character, Sophie, beginning with her sexual exploits and ending with her HEA (or HFN, if you prefer.)

Sophie's voice is so delightful you can't help but cheer her on for her journey. Save for one single chapter when she found herself in a place we've all been, she's absolutely unapologetic about her appetite. It's Sophie who introduces every player and who decides which story is worth telling. Sometimes she is the star of the action, while other times she's as eager a listener as we, the readership. Reminded me of sitting down with a good friend and getting a dishy story second-hand.

If I had to pick one chapter/story as my favourite, it would be Sophie's introduction to BDSM. It was the sexual equivalent of her eyes being bigger than her stomach, and I actually placed my hand over my eyes and muttered, "Oh, no, Sophie ..." and laughing out loud at the result.

I was a little shocked by the end result, but within seconds a sense of satisfaction came over me. Reflecting back on the story, the ending was perfection. It closed a book that made clear that what you see is not always what you get, including the fate of our heroine. I can't wait to dive into the sequel.
