Tightarse Tuesday!

In the great tradition of things being cheaper on a Tuesday, this post is all about free Kindle goodies.  These are some of  the really short Ellora's Cave novellas in the 'Naughty Nooners' series they have going.  Some are very short, others have a little bit more to them.

Her VerySpecial Robot by Ann Jacobs

I enjoyed this story, to a point, I found it amusing the guy would dress up as a robot just to get the girl of his dreams, but him being completely hairless and heavily pierced (for a role in a movie – he’s an actor), did kinda freak me out.  I liked the back story to this.  Girl loves boy, boy is stunt man, boys bestie is also stunt man. Boy performs stunt with epic failure.  Boys bestie then quits the stuntman business for acting (hence the no hair and piercing), all the while offering shoulder to cry on.  Bestie realises he loves her and comes up with plan that involves fake robot sex!?  Then they live happily ever after.  So yeah I enjoyed the writing, but it was a bit weird at the same time.

This was quite funny, with the main character going to an adult toy party, winning the door prize (you can imagine what it was) and then getting ambushed by her friend’s brother.  That’ll learn her :)

Danu, TheReturn by Sally Painter

This had a paranormal storyline, Danu being some sort of warrior lady and Ragna her Celtic warrior lover.  They vanquished some sort of evil and have been living happily ever after just the two of them.  What Danu didn’t tell Ragna, was that it’s only for 500 years, after that she needs to return to the present to train the next lot of ladies.  So they get separated, with Ragna vowing to find his way back to her.  I don’t read a lot of fantasy, but I didn’t mind this, although I don’t know how this would go as a full length story (either well as there would be room for more character development or bad, because they could have more sex).  There was also talk of scraping, which just sounded painful to me.
Desire inthe Dark by Naima Simone

This has been one of my favorites so far, Alise has loved Mac, her BFF from afar for the past year.  That all changes when Alise decides to tell Mac how she really feels.  Cue blackout – awkward feelings are always easier to deal with in the dark!  I really enjoyed Simone’s writing, I’ve not read anything by her before this, I was annoyed that this wasn’t longer, I’d love to know what happened when the lights came back on.

I originally downloaded these in 2009/2010 and they're all still available, some of them are terrible, but there have been quite a few that are great quick reads and they've made me seek out the author and try some of their other titles.  Enjoy, there's always free sexy books to find on the kindle store.

Sometimes it pays to be cheap ;)
