I loved this story when I read it originally, before G had decided to publish. I'm so glad he made the leap! This is the best of what erotica can be - engaging, interesting beyond just the sex, and hot, hot, hot! Though it's paranormal, the nature of the writing gives it a sci-fi bent, and if there was a Twilight Zone show for hella sexy (and okay, explicit) material, this would make the perfect episode. I can see where G has some room to grow as a writer, but I'm impressed with the quality of this first effort.
Lots of heat in this story, and the twists were definitely interesting. Unlike Madness, this one doesn't have a sci-fi feel. I loved the build of the characters and I wanted to know more about them. To me, that's the mark of a great short novel, that I'm invested enough in the characters that I crave further stories for them. My only issue with this one was that it ended abruptly. I turned the page to the next book and thought...wait...what? That was the end? So, G, give us more of Allie and Beck, will you?
I've never been a huge fan of ghost tales, but this one was compelling. I had to know what had happened to Erin and to see the resolution of her death. Keegan was equal parts freaked and enthralled, and I thought that was very believable. G convinced me that this story was possible. The execution was well-done and I loved the ending. This one was easily my favorite in the set, which, given my general disinclination for the subgenre, is an impressive feat.
Overall, an excellent set of stories and I'd be hard-pressed to guess that G is new at this game if I didn't know otherwise. Bravo! I can't wait to see what you do next.
G. Mallone resides in rural Tennessee. He punches the time clock every day and then comes home to get lost in worlds of magic, sex, and romance. He's still under the age of 30, but not for much longer. He enjoys movies, music, reading, writing, and 'muddin', but make no mistake--his male characters are nothing short of southern gentlemen. G currently has one book available, a collection of erotic paranormal short stories that can be enjoyed by readers on-the-go while they wait for doctor's appointments or while traveling. MISTRESS and HOOK IN LOVE are expected to be released in 2015.
