Online – Madeleine Taylor

Madeleine Taylor’s first book, The Good Girl, was a surprisingly tender erotic romance, hot and well-written. Part of the appeal was MC Emily’s ingenuity and the contrast with the mysterious woman she met at a hotel bar. I wouldn’t say Valerie, in whose point of view Online is told, is as naive but she’s nevertheless … Continue reading Online – Madeleine Taylor

Western Shores (The Compass Series Book 4) – Lise Gold

I fell in love with Lise Gold's books with Northern Lights, the first in the Compass series. The characters in this book and the following one, Southern Roots, make up one of my favourite couples in lesfic. There's Melissa Brayden's Jess and Brooklyn and there's Hannah and Kristine. Western Shores is the fourth – but … Continue reading Western Shores (The Compass Series Book 4) – Lise Gold

The Good Girl – Madeleine Taylor

4.5* While I've been reading more and more erotica lately, I'm by no means an expert, and I've been very pleasantly surprised by how varied a genre it is. In the last, say, three months, I read The X Ingredient by Roslyn Sinclair, Party of Three by Sandy Lowe (the audiobook version, perfectly narrated by … Continue reading The Good Girl – Madeleine Taylor

Fireflies – Lise Gold & Stevie Zimmerman (Narrator)

I think I finally understand why I like Lise Gold’s characters so much. They remind me of my wife. They’re good and selfless women who do their best to make life beautiful and easier for the people they love. They’re strong (much stronger than they think) and flawed, sweet and determined. Mia Donoghue loves her … Continue reading Fireflies – Lise Gold & Stevie Zimmerman (Narrator)

Living – Lise Gold & TJ Richards (narrator)

Living is one of my favorite books this year, probably in my Top 5. I wouldn’t have read it again so soon since I remembered a lot. Which, as you’ll know if you have read my reviews before, is rather telling and totally unusual. Yet when the audiobook came out, narrated by TJ Richards, I … Continue reading Living – Lise Gold & TJ Richards (narrator)

The Cruise – Lise Gold & C.C. Sinclair (narrator)

Once again, Lise Gold writes the sweetest characters. Cara is an unemployed journalist, living in London in a filthy apartment with her best friend, an performance artist called Dan. Dan is worried that she's getting more and more depressed and asks his new girlfriend Billie to help Cara get a job on the cruise ship … Continue reading The Cruise – Lise Gold & C.C. Sinclair (narrator)

Southern Roots (Compass, #2) – Lise Gold & Addison Barnes (narrator)

Hannah and Kristine are definitely one of my favorite couples. I loved them in Norway (Northern Lights), I love them in Louisiana. I took my time listening to the end of the book as I was not ready to say goodbye. There’s a lot more happening in this second book than in the first one, … Continue reading Southern Roots (Compass, #2) – Lise Gold & Addison Barnes (narrator)

Northern Lights: The Compass Series Book 1 – Lise Gold & Addison Barnes (narrator)

Northern Lights

[edit May 15th 2019: I can't get these people out of my mind and I really feel like I was in Norway with them and all, so I'm upgrading this book from 4* to 5*. I usually give 5* to books which change my life in some way (however small), I guess this one fits … Continue reading Northern Lights: The Compass Series Book 1 – Lise Gold & Addison Barnes (narrator)
