Over the Fourth of July weekend, he’ll reignite Annie’s passion with his own brand of fireworks. Stand

back and watch the sparks fly.



Fertility Struggles


Waiting for Us is another book that I got during a Fill Your Kindle event. The synopsis called to me, despite me being ... meh ... about erotica.

Frankly, if this was just erotica, I probably wouldn't like it.

After all, as much as I love smut, I love reading more. I want the story.

Believe it or not, this short story - only 60 pages long - had a story. I was impressed. Sure - a lot of it was sex. Very, very hot sex. But it also had characters who were struggling - personally, and in their marriage.

And I think that is why I enjoyed it.

Because while it's intent is to be a spicy short story that ends happily, Mari Carr establishes a story that will hit home to many. A story that brings to the forefront that a couple can love one another deeply, but still hit a bump in the road. And sometimes, you gotta put the work in to get over the bump.

Is the story predictable? Absolutely.

Who expects magic in a short story of this nature?

That fact that Mari Carr was able to write a short story that drew me in, and had me purchasing the rest of the series afterward, shows some talent.

If you love reading erotic romance that is heavily alpha/submissive, and slightly leans into BDSM - you will enjoy this short story. It's short, but packs a big ol' punch.



Evan: “What do you say we head home, Ms. Iser? I have a hankering to hear you make all those delicious noises again. In bed.”

Annie was off the stool before he’d added the last bit.

Annie: “You’ll have to catch me first, Lieutenant.”

And with that she jiggled her car keys with a giggle and left.
