4.0 out of 5 stars Fast, fun and titillating read. Each woman is introduced to her darker, more sensuous side Dec 29 2009

Sweet and Dirty by Christina Crooks
Erotic Contemporary Romance -Dec 29, 2009
4 stars

Christina Crooks has written a racy and adventurous anthology that is not for the faint of heart. It is a well written book which does include some BDSM that can be a little wicked! These are certainly not the typical romances and the heroines both explore their sexuality in a way that is freeing and exciting!

In the first story, Michelle has moved to the city. She is dissatisfied with her old life and the expectations of her family and ex-fiancée. But she gets far more than she expects when she meets Ro. Ro has opened a new S&M nightclub and when he sees Michelle he knows she would be his perfect submissive. If only she had the courage to let herself go!

In the 2nd story, Nora is a high powered woman. But she has secret desires. When her fiancée surprises her and takes her to a special B&B which caters to S&M she gets far more than she bargained for!

This book was a fast, fun and titillating read. Each woman is introduced to her darker, more sensuous side. They become uninhibited and fearless. It was great to read each of the heroines break loose and it didn't hurt that the sex scenes were super hot! Some sections were a little too shocking for this reader but if you love erotic romances with a female submissive this is one sure to keep you enthralled.

4.0 out of 5 stars A little variety can be nice! Jan. 14 2011
By Lindsay - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
First off, I'm not normally a fan of novellas for one of the main reasons already pointed out in the other reviews - there's not a lot of back story and development, and they may not always result in a HEA. But unlike the other readers, I don't always need that. Both stories were well-written, face-paced, and I really didn't want to put the book down while reading "Forbidden Heat," so that tells me a lot.

It may be shocking to some because there were taboos and fetishes covered here that I haven't read in other erotic romances. However, I don't want to read the same thing over and over again just packaged in a new cover by a different author - variety can be good and definitely spices up the reading. I'll be checking out this author in the future!

3.0 out of 5 stars 2  stars for two stories about self discovery and exploration into the BDSM world. April 9 2010
By Jane - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
BARING IT ALL.

Bondage, pain and humiliation was the primary erotic focus. Emotional pull was lacking for me.

STORY BRIEF:
Michelle owned a successful dog breeding business. She handled the dogs with love. Her mother and sister were dominating personalities and bullied Michelle most of her life. They insisted that she be more dominant and controlling with her dogs which caused problems. Michelle left the business and moves to L.A. She meets Ro who owns an S&M club. She asks him to teach her to be a dominant personality, both sexually and in her regular life. He plans to teach her that she is really a submissive and that there are benefits to being that way. Other stories involve people trying to hurt Ro's business, and Michelle's former boyfriend Ted coming to town, wanting to take her back home.

REVIEWER'S OPINION:
There is not enough emotional development for me. It's more about self discovery within the BDSM culture than romance. It's a setting for a submissive person being bound, whipped, humiliated, and having sex in front of others. It's ok for that, if that's what you want to read about. I prefer more relationship development and story with interesting characters, dialogue, etc.

DATA:
Story length: 112 pages. Swearing language: moderate. Sexual language: strong/erotic. Number of sex scenes: 3. Approximate number of sex scene pages: 24. Setting: current day Los Angeles, California. Copyright: 2010. Genre: erotic contemporary romance.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

FORBIDDEN HEAT.

Rape, bondage, whipping, electrical and other torture. Not enough story or emotional development for me.

STORY BRIEF:
Nora's secret fantasy is to be chased, captured and raped. She tells this to her boyfriend Ryan. He's not interested, but he comes up with a plan to cure her of this idea. He makes reservations for the two of them to stay four days at a B & B in the mountains. She later discovers that this is a Bondage and Breakfast place. Ryan filled out a checklist in her name requesting the maximum amount of bondage, pain and humiliation. When she learns this, she is angry. Ryan then offers himself to suffer these tortures in hopes of obtaining her forgiveness. Nora is immediately drawn to the club's owner Sylvester - knowing he would be perfect to capture and rape her. But Sylvester refuses to participate in any activity due to a bad experience in the past. Since Nora can't have Sylvester, she lets a couple of others show her the experiences of bondage, whipping, and electrical torture. This includes rear door activity.

REVIEWER'S OPINION:
This was interesting because it was weird. I've never read about electrical torture this way, but I assume there is more out there. I can't recommend this for erotic romance. There wasn't any romance. It's more about self discovery and exploration within the BDSM world. I prefer more emotional development with some romance.

DATA:
Story length: 165 pages. Swearing language: strong. Sexual language: strong/erotic. Number of sex scenes: 7. Approximate number of sex scene pages: 56. Setting: current day Oregon near Mt. Hood. Copyright: 2010. Genre: erotic contemporary romance.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Discovery of Personal Limits and Desires in these BDSM romances Jan. 30 2010
By Booklover1335 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I enjoyed many aspects about this anthology of two novellas by Christina Crooks, and there were definitely some elements that pushed the boundaries of my comfort level (not that there is anything wrong with that). That being said, there were also a few things that were disappointing.

"Baring it All" was much more of a traditional BDSM romance. I liked Michelle and Ro's story and liked that the heroine was trying out the lifestyle in order to learn to be more in control of her life. However, I thought the secondary story about her ex-boyfriend exploring and discovering his homosexuality was unnecessary and distracted from the main love story that I was more interested in. Considering this was a novella instead of a full length novel I wished that this time would have been spent on the developing relationship between the hero and the heroine because I felt that we were left with the possibility of love, rather than having the type of HEA that I like at the end of a story.

The second novella in this anthology is "Forbidden Heat". It is a more extreme and intense story than "Baring it All". And while some of the BDSM practices left me uncomfortable and pushed the boundaries of what I like to read in romance (questioning how something described as pain could in fact be pleasurable) I was immediately drawn into this story.

"Forbidden Heat" is mostly about Nora's self discovery within the context of the BDSM world. Nora is a heroine, much like many women today, who struggle with the demands of a successful career, and being able to give up control, and trust to someone else in their personal life. Sylvester, was a very interesting hero. He embraces the lifestyle and has created the B&B as a safe and consensual environment for people like himself to enjoy themselves, while also using it as a way to distance himself from his own desires. One past experience that went amiss has left him shaken and wary of letting go to his baser instincts, which prevents him from engaging the way he would like with a submissive partner like Nora.

Even though Nora didn't expect to spend the weekend in a BDSM resort, she embraces the experience and explores bondage, electric shock stimulation, and her most secret desire...to enact a rape fantasy. As previously mentioned this story is much more extreme and intense (at least for me), and while some of the situations the characters find themselves in made me uncomfortable, I did feel that this was the stronger of the two stories.

Sylvester's need to dominate Nora, yet his lack of trust in himself because of his past makes this story much more compelling. I wish however, that Nora's exploration of the BDSM lifestyle would have happened only with Sylvester instead of with multiple partners. I would have liked to see him struggle with his self imposed restrictions while tutoring and mentoring Nora in her discovery rather than avoiding her and the temptations she presents to him. And since trust is a such a large part of a D/s relationship I think it could have provided more of an opportunity to establish a stronger connection for just the two of them instead of him fostering her education to the additional partners that Nora had. I also believe that this particular novella would have worked much better as a full length novel. There was so much potential here between Nora and Sylvester, with their personal demons, that I was disappointed and felt that their love story was short changed due to the length.

Like "Baring it All" I felt the story was much more a journey of self discovery and exploration into the BDSM world for the heroine, than a true romance. I didn't feel that Nora and Sylvester had enough page time together to develop the relationship that was intended and the deeper love that was possible.

Despite these criticisms, overall I enjoyed both of these novellas and the authors writing style. I am sure readers who enjoy erotic romance with BDSM elements will also enjoy them, especially with some of the more unconventional practices (at least for romance novels I've read) described in "Forbidden Heat". I just felt they were both more erotica; exploring and discovering personal desires and limits verging on romance, rather than erotic romances resulting in what I like to have in a HEA for the hero and heroine in each story.
