Reviews for Transported and Over My Head.

Hi folks, I know you’re expecting Friends Friday and hopefully I’ll get one up later today but if not look out for it’s return next week.

I’ve recently had the pleasure of reading two great books by two talented authors who I’m pleased to count as friends. Let me tell you a little about each author and their book in turn!

Sharazade says:

I am a professional writer, editor, and consultant, with more than 20 books published under another name. I divide my time among Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and the U.S. I enjoy stories that are realistic enough that they might have happened and fanciful enough that they might not have. I value communication, adventure, exploration, passion, and love.

And I read her book Transported:Erotic Travel Tales

transported.

Here’s what I thought of it.

As a person who doesn’t have my own car, I spend a lot of time of public transport, in fact I come up with some of my best idea when I’m staring out of the window or a bus or a train. This collection brings together tales of the unexpectedly erotic amongst the mundanity of travel.

There is a good variety of tales, all hot and all well written. I was particularly taken with ‘Flaws’ as I could identify with the woman’s point of view that so often concentrated on her flaws. I think it’s very easy to fall into this mind set and I love the way that Sharazade shows the difference a little confidence can make. It also contains a smoking hot sex scene that definitely sticks in my memory. A sexy story with a moral, what could be better?

My other favourite is “Just browsing’ any bibliophile will appreciate this story of lust in a store between shelves stacked with lovely books, lots of lovely books. It’s the classic encounter with a stranger but with a bookish twist. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

So if you fancy being whisked off to exotic locations, or to find out ways to keep yourself occupied on a long flight, a lay over or on a busy train then this is the book for you!

Pick it up at Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk

Now onto the Lovely Wendi Zwaduk! She says:

I always dreamed of writing the stories in my head. Tall, dark, and handsome heroes are my favorites, as long as he has an independent woman keeping him in line. I tend to write books with titles taken from songs because music is one of my many muses. I earned a BA in education and as well as a Masters in Education. I’ve tried my hand at teaching, waitressing, and retail sales, but writing holds my heart.

I love NASCAR, romance, books in general, farmland, dirt racing, and my menagerie of animals. I books under contract with Total-E-Bound, Liquid Silver Books, and the Wild Rose Press. But then again, I’ve got more stories percolating than my brain can handle. I can’t wait to share them with you!

Over my Head by Wendi Zwaduk

This is a wonderfully romantic story set in a seedy club. We have a hero, an undercover cop. I’m not giving anything away there, you find this out from the book blurb! And a girl who needs rescuing, Astra, a dancer, a lover and a girl with troubles.

I love a story where the guy whisks the gal off her feet. This is one of those but worked in a deliciously subtle way. I love how Wendi writes from the perspective of Slade and Astra. You get to see the world from both of their points of view and I felt it took me deeper into their story.

And hot? wowzers, there are some really, really sexy scenes in Over my Head, oh my. You’ll not be disappointed I can tell you!

If you like a sexy romance with a bit of grit then pick this up pronto!

So there you go, a couple of hot reads for the weekend!
