Stormy Haven
Stormy Haven
by Savannah Smythe
Edition: Mass Market Paperback
12 used & new from CDN$ 3.00

1.0 out of 5 stars Ho hum ..... what can I say ..., July 22 2003
Our heroine, Daisy Mae Lovell, supposedly the daughter of a millionaire father (really odd to have a name like Daisy Mae... seems like a very very un-millionare type of name doesn't it?) attempts to declare her independence from the meddling of daddy big bucks. Actually she is quite dumb, and daddy hires a private eye to follow her meanderings from jolly old England to Colorado to chase hurricanes .... cute or what ...
In the first chapter of the book the reader finds that Daisy Mae uses Max Factor make up, wears a wonderbra and has sex in the hallway's of bars just outside the womens bathroom door whith a guy she just met ..... Again, I don't know about you
but that all seems uncharacteristic for a babe with a millionare father ....
The odd thing was there are numerous refernces to poor Daisy Mae going to the 'loo' and then either participating in
or witnessing strange sexual goings on .... darn guess I'm going to really make it a point to hang around the 'loo' bathrooms more often when I go out in case Daisy Mae shows up ......
Then we find out that she had a love affair, or I guess we should say sex affair, with a good loooking homosexual Puerto Rican named Chico Menendez .... that's so cute I thought I was gonna vomit!
For the life of me I have no idea how I even finished this book ....

5.0 out of 5 stars Crisp wonderfull real life story and film ....., July 22 2003
This review is from: Drumline (Full Screen) (DVD)
Unfortunately, today, one must go off the beaten track to get away from ninjas... witches ... cops ... lawyers etc etc kind of movie where you pretty well know what the ending is before it starts AND the only lesson you'll remember is 'darn that was expensive ' should have watched TV at home ....
Drumline is a story about a talented young man who has been told to make the most of his talent no matter what .. what they didn't tell him is that one has to work your talent inside a complex society .. no good if you are the best drummer in the word if you don't have a great band to play with ....
Although I would lave to have ssen more of the drumline sequences at games the movie has just enough on it's sound track to make it very memorable ...
This may not be the greatest movie I ever saw and it may not be an epic BUT this movie is fun .. remember that .. a fun movie WOW ....

2.0 out of 5 stars You would have to LOVE the work nuveaux cuisine requires, July 21 2003
to be able to enjoy this cookbook, because,
ONE, All the recepies are much more complicated versions of classic dishes that I have prepared in the past .... ie. I tried to fry the spaetzle dish to a golden brown ... good luck ...
TWO, Some of the recepies just don't even cut it as far as taste is concerned...... I have for years made Salmon tartare from an old Russian recepie so I was pleased to try the Tuna tartare in this book ... but .. even sticking to the ingredients ... there was a lot left over after the party ....
I think this book and the recepies would be great in a kitchen where you have more than 1 cook preparing the meal ..... sorry ,,,,,...

Velvet Skin
Velvet Skin
by Aishling Morgan
Edition: Mass Market Paperback
15 used & new from CDN$ 0.54

5.0 out of 5 stars Erotica for specific tastes, July 4 2003
Velvet Skin as it's name should foreward is light S&M erotica and also entails some considerable bathroom sex ... it's not really my cup of pee ... ooops I mean tea ... but again erotica is really dependent on the reader and the eye of the beholder.
The story is set, probably in Victorian times, in the backwoods of England where the wealthly landowners love to attend church on Sunday to break their routine of violating practically every women that comes nearby. This one is different in that it contains the oddity of a black maid who is kidnapped by a jealous husband and then supposedly re-sold as a modern day slave.

5.0 out of 5 stars A delicious look at discovering the first taste of true love, June 21 2003
Through the authors' equisite writing skills she not only allows us the vicarious thirll of following a young and innocent Katherin one her first journey of true love and ultimate surrender, but also paints a picture of life so real you can almost touch it. Katherin and Micheals whirlwind love story begins one New Year's eve and fully develops until events and separate them in the summer.
If you are expecting a wild story with sex, perversion and violence then don't waste you time ... get another book ... ditto for crime, melodrama and authors that are trying to push an agenda and point of view. .....
This is just as advertised a wonderfull, sweet, and yes, innocent look at real life that young reader will find telling and identifiable while the mature reader will smile and laugh at a walk down memory lane .......
Definitely not my usuall fare in lietrature I have to tell you that books like this are far and few between ....

The Celebrated Mistress
The Celebrated Mistress
by James Jennings
Edition: Paperback
6 used & new from CDN$ 6.75

1.0 out of 5 stars Just doesn't cut it ..., June 20 2003
Ther are two stories in this book .... my edition has 'Maudie' running at 119 pages and 'Pleasure Afloat' at another 120 pages ....
Maudie is the story of a young Charlie, a man of position but with limited funds spirited away by Maude and Tubby a young girl and a fat old wealthy lech ...... It seems like Charlie is a great turn of the century photographer and TUbby wants him to photograph the bacchanalian orgies that he has at a remote mansion where he keeps Maude ...
The concept is great as we are surrounded by a bevy of beautifull maidens and men wanting to taste their charms, but, the story falls very very flat .... I think it's our 'Anonymous' author's lack of descriptive powers that should usually make Victorian erotica fly ...
The Pleaseure Afloat book is in my mind absolute garbage .. a dumb story very very badly written .... I think it was written by a German author not really what I consider being a language in the forefront of turn of the century erotica....
Finally, these two stories are OLD OLD OLD and I have seen them both in other books which I can't pinpoint since the publishers are driving me nuts by altering titles and republishing works .... Save your money I think ...

3.0 out of 5 stars I really really really did want to like this movie ....., June 18 2003
This review is from: Frida (DVD)
but ... after all the hype, both from the press and from my friends I have to admit I was disappointed and had trouble sitting throung the end.
OK .. the movie has a phenomenal start, that's the reason I gave it 3 stars, and the scene of Frida's accident and her recovery in the hospital is what I could say was dircetorial genius and very very original. The problem, well it basically starts to fall flat as we watch Frida grow up to marry Diego Rivera ....
Both Frida and Diego really provide us with a clear cut image of a dysfunctional marriage of convenience and love that as strong as a mile wide river ... only problem is that the river is only 2 inches deep .... Diego is the ardent communist that is certainly more in love with the communist party and his art that he ever was with Frida ..... and ... while Frida did love Diego I can't really say that fidelity and abstinence was high on her list of priorities either ...
And that's the problem with the movie ... I just didn't walk away liking either character no matter how much the director wanted to portray them as free wheeling and free spirited communists .... trust me there is no such a thing .... you are either one or the other ...

4.0 out of 5 stars Sultry ... hot ... fast paced Teaxas style erotica ...., June 9 2003
Tanya, our graphic artist heroine, has everything a young woman should desire, living in luxury with a wealthy young banker, working at a small prominent studio where she gets to let her imagination run wild on the pages of a new spicy adult comic book.....
So what could possibly go wrong ......
Well for starters, her boyfriend is not a supportive of her talent as she should have expected, her boss started to 'lech' for her while trying to steal creative credit for her work, and .. well .. yes there appears on the scene another graphic artist, a much younger man named Stephan, who was just too too yummie fro Tanya to ignore ....
The author takes the reader along with Tanya as she struggles for her professional identity with a real life story that could be taken right out of the day to day activities of many modern women ...
Easy summertime reading to while away a sultry afternoon .....

5.0 out of 5 stars A contemporary erotica novel that sizzles ...., May 20 2003
The story will grab you from the first sentence as our heroine has decided that she's had enough and wasn't going to take it any more.
Grabbing whatever cash she could get her hands on she dons her fur coat and steps out into the streets of Manhattan for her new life. With the help of her school girfriend, Zoe, and Vivian Li, the young and lithe neighbour, she starts to explore the world of 'no holds barred' sex and sensuality .... The fact that her husband was the ONLY man she had ever been with in her married life seems to add that spicy naughtiness and realism to a great geat erotic story ....
The author certainly not only knows women and what goes through their minds, but, she is also able to write about it making the reader feel he is there and vicariously taking part of the deflowering of an 'every day' common woman ... WOW
