Review + Giveaway: How I became Lotus Raine...the porn star by Erika Ashby

I refused to work my way up the company ladder by sexually favoring my sleazy boss. I was beginning to lose hope. Until one day, he surprised me with an assignment that would literally rock my world.

I never imagined my first assignment being my last. But Brent Nichols worked his way inside every way possible, unlocking something within me. 

Becoming a porn star was never part of the plan. Neither was changing my name. 

Everyone else knows me as Lucy Rogers, but you can call me Lotus Raine.

“We don’t have to do this tonight, but you’ll just be prolonging the inevitable if you decide against it.” His hand moved to my neck, cradling it as it fell back and his free hand trailed up my thigh, moving under the jean fabric of my shorts. “If you don’t want to go all the way, I won’t fight it, but let me at least give you a taste of what you’ll be missing out on.” He bent down, whispering into my ear, licking the edge of it as his finger slipped beneath the security of my cotton panties. Man was I thankful for my non-painted on shorts at that very moment. And so was my conscious pussy.

I bit my lip—hard—suppressing the moan. I internalized it by pressing my center closer to him, as his finger moved in and out of me deeper and faster.

“So wet. So wet and tight.” He murmured praises into my neck as he recklessly worked his finger in and out of me. I had never been touched as possessively and with such expertise as I had with him. In my mind, he had to be a professional fingerer. That had to be a profession, right?

Knocking at the door broke through my consciousness and caused my body to tense.

“Wait your fuckin’ turn,” he turned his head, yelling toward the door.

“We need to go,” I said hesitantly as he continued working his finger, adding his thumb to the mix as he rubbed my clit. My hands pressed into the top of the counter as I pushed myself further into the wall. I could feel it deep within me—signs of what was to come, forming and beginning to crackle throughout my body. Like an electrical current seeking full charge. Sparks here and there uniting, wanting to become one combustible unit.

“We aren’t leaving this bathroom until you get off. Either by my finger or my dick. The choice is yours.”

“Seriously?” I withered even more beneath him. “Who talks like that?” I had never been so turned on in all my life. It wasn’t just the way he was touching me, but that damn mouth of his could get me off by words alone.

“Men who know what they’re doing.” He looked up and gave me a sexy smirk.

 ~*Review by Jodie Rae*~

I rated How I became Lotus Raine...the porn star by Erika Ashby FIVE LEAVES!!!

This book is 5+ leaves. It is a sexy, seductive, captivating, and a compelling story. What’s not to love about a sexy porn star and an innocent woman? They are two people from completely different worlds, different outlooks on life, and varied sexual experience, who find love in an unsuspecting way.

The story is of a porn star who falls in love with the reviewer who is assigned to job shadow him for a week.  How I became Lotus Raine...the porn star is more than the blurb indicates. This is more than the story of a porn star and the writer who wants to uncover his lifestyle. At first I expected this story to be about Lucy breaking into the porn business.  That is why you should never base your opinion on a cover or the title of the book. 

Brent. Wow, what can I say about Brent? He is swoon worthy, charming, and sexy.  I never shivered so much in my life as I did from reading what Brent said and did to Lucy! He is one heck of a Casanova and I found myself falling under his spell very quickly. Brent is drawn to the innocence and beauty of Lucy.  She is like a breathe of fresh air in an ugly world of sex.  He loves that he gets to experience Lucy's firsts. Brent is so much more than a porn star. And Lucy is completely fascinated by him. As she discovers more and more about him, she found she was in fact falling in love.  I loved the heroine in this book. I loved how she never once backed down and she always fought for what she was feeling.  She ultimately fought for the man for whom she was falling in love.

This book will likely top my favorites list for years to come! I loved loved LOVED every single page.   Erika Ashby is a fabulous writer and I've loved everything she's ever written, but this book especially has a special place on my bookshelf and in my heart.

 ~*About the Author*~

Being born an "Army Brat", Erika Ashby has been residing in Oklahoma the last 10 years finally putting an end to the nomad tendencies she had grown accustomed to. She's a happily married woman who has 5 kids between her and her husband. She has an insane passion for music and embraces her Inner Groupie any chance she has. It wasn't until the age of 29 that she realized she also had a hidden passion for reading; before then she claimed to have hated it. Six months after unlocking that deep desire she never knew she held, she turned the key to another chapter of her life which has become the desire to write. And the rest is still history in the making.

~Review by Jodie Rae~

I rated Break the Sky by Nina Lane FIVE LEAVES!!

My favorite book boyfriend is Dean West, written by the fabulous Nina Lane. I was so excited to hear Dean's brother, Archer, was going to get his own book:  Break the Sky. With this book, I hate to say this, I am torn between the brothers!! I love them both! 

This love story is about Archer West and Kelsey March. We met Kelsey in Arouse, book one in the Spiral of Bliss series.  Kelsey is a good friend of Olivia and colleague of Dean.  Kelsey is also the most respected meteorologists in the country.  This storm chaser will turn Archer's world upside down and as they make their love into a powerful storm.  If you have read the Spiral of Bliss series, you are aware we met Archer in book two in that series.  He leaves a very nasty taste in our mouth after an incident was taken place with Olivia. Kelsey comes off as a feisty and independent woman who lives her life for her and takes what she needs. Archer, Dean's very sexy brother, is someone that ignites every cell in Kelsey's body. 

It takes some persuading of Archer to make an offer Kelsey is incapable of refusing;  be together until he finishes his brothers house, no strings attached, just get to know each other and enjoy each others company. What follows is quite possibly the hottest set of fireworks I have had the pleasure of reading. Archer and Kelsey not only being a perfect match in bed, but also soul mates in every other way. Let me talk a little about Archer.  He is just absolutely delicious. I love a good alpha male character and I loved how he dominated the strong-willed Kelsey. 
Kelsey and Archer are a very sexy couple! Are you looking for a book that will have your pulse racing?  What about falling in love with two absolutely intense characters?  How about a book that makes you feel weak in the knees? If you said YES to those three questions, then Break the Sky by Nina Lane should definitely be your next read!
Nina Lane has created an amazing story with Break the Sky; paying great attention to simple details within the story. I felt that the steamy, hot, sexy scenes really fit this story.

A minute later, Alicia emerged wearing just her panties and a naughty expression, her arms folded across her breasts. Ben gave a low whistle, reaching under the covers to quickly pull off his underwear. “I love Saturdays.”
            Alicia hopped onto the bed, straddling him over the covers, pressing her hands to the pillow on either side of Ben’s head. Ben’s eyes were glued to her naked chest, his hands quickly following them. “Oh, and here I thought you were about to say you loved me,” Alicia said, lowering her face to his neck.
            Ben closed his eyes for a moment, taking in the incredible sensation of what she was doing to his ear. “Oh, don’t worry, honey. I’ll always love you almost as much as I love Saturdays.”
            Alicia laughed at his joke before grinding her hips into his lap. “You sure about the order of things there, Ben? Can Saturday do this to you?”
            Lifting his muscular torso, Ben met Alicia’s lips with his, slowly running his tongue over her bottom lip before crushing his mouth to hers. Their tongues found each other, dancing their familiar, perfect tango. After so many years together, their need for each other had only grown more profound, their ability to give and receive pleasure only more intense.
            Ben moved his hands down to her hips and flipped her over onto her back, tossing the sheet off himself and out of his way. He was rock hard and ready to give her what he knew she wanted most, but first he wanted a taste of what was to come. Sliding his hands down to her panties, he tugged them off in one swift movement, leaving her bared to him in the morning sunlight. The streams of light hit her body and face, giving her a look that was almost angelic.
            Ben gently parted her legs with his strong hands, opening her to his waiting mouth. His tongue stretched out and reached her first with one long, deliciously slow stroke along her core. Alicia’s breath caught as she let her hands glide over her breasts and tummy. Ben’s lips were next to touch her, sucking gently on her already wet sex. His tongue rolled over her with the exact amount of force that made her wild with pleasure, his thumbs sliding deeper inside, rubbing as his mouth worked its magic. Alicia looked down to the place where his mouth met her body, taking in the intoxicating intimacy of allowing herself to be open to him like this in the sunlight. There was nowhere to hide, but with him there was no need. His love for her was steady and strong and would last a lifetime.
