Do you want to read a book that is far different than anything out there? Then this is your book. Do you want to read a book that will take you for a ride of your life, and you won’t forget you were on it? This is your book.

I have never really believed in FATE before, but after reading this story, I feel it could be possible. You have two characters, Jesse and Kylie. Jesse is a troubled “Rocker” and Kylie is a troubled “ex pageant girl”. You wouldn’t think living in New York City, two people, with so much in common would ever meet, and connect the way they did, but it had to be fate.

The authors writing style has you feeling like you are right there with them. You can connect with these people, even though the thing I know about pageants is what I see on TV.

This is such a wonderful, romantic, rollercoaster of a story that I highly recommend everyone to read. You won’t regret it.




This time he didn’t text. He just called, waking her at two-fifteen a.m.

“Bare-ly dressed again tonight?”

Her laugh, filled with sleep was gruff. “Barely dressed every night.”

“What exactly do you have on?”

“A pink tank top and pink silk bikini.”

“Take them off,” he ordered.

“Excuse me,” there was an element of surprise in Kylie’s voice.

“You heard me. Take them off. Now.” Just hearing rustling on the other end of the line, he could feel his cock stiffen and it felt damn good after all this time. Baby, I’m back, he thought.

“We’re having phone sex? But, Jesse, we haven’t even kissed yet,” her protest was weak. And even she knew it.

“Yes, we’re having phone sex, and when I get back to New York, we’re going to do a lot more than kiss. You’ve friend-zoned me, Toots, and I’m busting out.”

Kylie was smiling on her end of the phone. Friend-zoned Jesse Fucking Winslow? Was he serious? “Nobody puts Jesse in a friend-zone,” she couldn’t help herself.

“Are they off?” He totally ignored her joke.


“What was that?” he asked, his voice gruff and serious.

“Yes, they’re off.”

“Okay, spread your legs, and with your phone, take a picture of your pussy for me.”

“Seriously?” She knew she was blushing in the dark.

“Take the picture, Kylie.”

“Okay, but if you sell this to the paparazzi, I will kill you.” There was a rustling sound, then, “Oh, my God, I can’t believe I’m doing this.”

He laughed.

“Okay, here it comes. I hope it’s photogenic. It would be really embarrassing to have a non-photogenic pussy.”

Pulling the phone from his ear to look, Kylie could hear his moan, exciting her even more.

“So photogenic, Toots, just like the rest of you. And I love the red landing strip. It’s so hot. Oh, man, I love this. Spread your legs wider and use one hand to spread your lips open for me and send me another.”

Following his directions, she did as he requested.

About the Author

I must’ve been 5 or 6 when I started writing “stories”. I would write them and hide them.

Not wanting anyone to see my “secret” thoughts. I needed to write – even back then. Now I’m just not hiding them anymore. Is that a sign of maturity? Nah…

Writer, photographer, insatiable wanderluster, edge-player, foodie, music addict, pop culture fanatic, animal lover, warrior for the rights of people and planet, and avid cusser (am a Native

New Yorker, so very little offends me…and if I am offended, it must be pretty freaking

bad grammar!)

I am a big believer in signs and if we keep ourselves open, there are guideposts all along the way. Stay humble. Be true. Be you.

Life is not a dress rehearsal…

Monster, an all-new dark romance from Marni Mann is LIVE!

“Because I came from you, does that mean I’m capable of killing? That I’ll be addicted to blood? That I’ll get off on torturing people?”

The kid had questions.

I didn’t blame him.

He’d only heard one side, and it wasn’t mine.

“Why did you hate my mother?”

Now, that was a story worth telling.

But, to do that, I had to bring the kid back to the very beginning.

When the killing and the blood and the torture had all started.

When I was truly happy.

When I was first called a Monster.

Monster is a follow-up to Animal. Animal must be read first.


Monster is an extremely dark novel. There are strong sexual themes, drug usage, physical and sexual abuse, and torture that could trigger and/or cause emotional suffering.

Dang it… I don’t know where to start… Okay… Let’s me start at the beginning… because the ending would skew my review…So I will save that for the end.

This story is about a few characters… it goes from “Past” to “Present”. The “Past” is letters written from “Shank”, to his son “The Kid”. A son that Shank never claimed was his.

You find out how Shank got the boy’s mother pregnant…well…we all know how that happens…but it just fills in blanks and answers some unanswered questions that we had after we read the first book in this series ANIMAL. So if you haven’t read that yet, go do it now. You will be happy that you did. I read Animal, and I’ll be damned if I can remember some of the stuff that I needed to remember for this story. So I may have to go back and reread the ending of it… so I won’t be so “F’n” confused.

Then, the “Present” is a story about Huck, who is a HOT AS HECK hunk in the story… he saves a woman, Arin and falls for her. Huck allows Arin to work in his brothel, but not selling herself, to do office work.

Now, the question you may ask… How do all of these people tie together? You have to read the book and find out. I am not going to give anything away.

Let me tell you though, if you read Animal, and could handle all the DARK AND CRAZY in that story… you will be able to handle Monster. It is just as messed up and dark!

Good luck… the only complaint for me is I don’t have the memory of an elephant anymore and I can’t remember how someone ties into the story…So I am going to have to go back and reread the first book to get more questions I have answered.

But all and all…Still love this crazy as “F” author… and her writing style. Sexy and DARK… perfect combination.

When two worlds collide. The “Good Girl Gwen” has a rough start. She has lost a lot in her life, and is trying to start over. She moves back with her good friend and they go to a party.
Gwen feels overwhelmed and needs some “air”… she runs into a sweet, handsome man… and they talk… then they wind up sleeping together. Come to find out… he was Garrett from the rock band Civil Corruption. Gwen wakes up the next morning to an empty bed, and she is kicked out of the house by their assistant.

Gwen thought they had something, and come to find out, she was just another woman to sleep with a band mate. Even though she didn’t know he was in the band. She just really liked him.

Come to find out now, Gwen is pregnant. She does the right thing and tells Garrett that she is pregnant. The things that he and the band puts her though, is not what she was hoping for, so she doesn’t take any of his money, puts it in the bank for their daughter.

Her world turns upside down when the band take a break, and Garrett wants to spend more time with his daughter.

This is such a rollercoaster story, but truly a wonderful, sexy and loving story.

I loved Gwen’s character. She is a strong woman who has an awesome since of humor. Now of course, the author is the one who writes it… and I have never read anything by Jessica Prince before, and I am now a FAN.

There was a line that I had to highlight that made me laugh out loud… “I felt so out of place it wasn’t funny. It was like being a shined-up turd parading around a bunch of diamonds.”

There were several lines that were funny, but that one just stuck with me.

If you are looking for a fun, heartwarming and sexy story, give this one a try.

About the Author

Born and raised around Houston Texas, Jessica spent most of her life complaining about the heat, humidity, and all around pain in the ass weather. It was only as an adult that she quickly realized the cost of living in Houston made up for not being able to breathe when she stepped outside. That’s why God created central air, after all.

Jessica is the mother of a perfect little boy–she refuses to accept that he inherited her attitude and sarcastic nature no matter what her husband says.

In addition to being a wife and mom, she’s also a wino, a coffee addict, and an avid lover of all types of books–romances still being her all time favs. Her husband likes to claim that reading is her obsession but she just says it’s a passion…there’s a difference. Not that she’d expect a boy to understand.

Jessica has been writing since she was a little girl, but thankfully grew out of drawing her own pictures for her stories before ever publishing her first book. Because an artist she is not.

Gallery owner Mona Lisa St. James is in financial trouble. She can’t afford to keep her gallery open. When Malcolm makes her an offer to pay her for sex for a year to get her back on her feet, Mona takes him up on his deal. Essentially she will be his “whore” and available for any fantasy for approximately once a month. Mona knows nothing about Malcolm but will this arrangement save her gallery?

“He was a god to her now, a god of sex and sin. If he could have fucked her forever, she would let him. In hell where the sins of lust were punished, they said the lascivious damned tore each other apart with their desires, and the rent and bleeding pieces still found ways to meet and mate with each other. How was that hell, she wondered? These theologians had never met Malcolm.”

Holy smokes! **Fans self while trying to cool down** That was one scorcher of a book. Mona makes a deal with Malcolm, an art connoisseur, for sex for a year – no limits. Their time together just surpasses all taboo fantasies. I loved all of the twists this story takes and did not guess the ending. I can’t believe how much I learned about art. Google was on standby because I had to know the basis of what scene Malcolm would want to reenact. What an incredibly, enjoyable story that is reminiscent of the Original Sin series. You know who Malcolm reminds me of? Kingsley! He is my favorite character and has such a devilish personality. God, I miss him.

If you are looking for a sexy book, look no further. I devoured this one and feel a re-read of all of Tiffany’s other books coming on. I miss Soren, Nora and Kingsley. I think they are missing me too!

OMG… Where do I start?

First, I would love to do some of my favorite quotes from this story in my review… but many of them included some dirty words, so I can’t, because the review won’t be allowed. So, that should tell you something about this story, it is DIRTY! And I loved it.


This is a story about an art gallery called The Red. It is owned by Mona Lisa St. James. Her mother owned it and Mona took it over recently after her mother passed.
The gallery is in financial trouble, but Mona promised her mother on her deathbed that she would keep the gallery.

She meets a stranger in the gallery one evening. She only knows him as Malcolm. He makes her a proposition to help her save the gallery… it must be for the duration of one year, and he can do anything he wishes to do with her. She will be his “whore”. It will only be once a month… but I wanted OH SO MUCH MORE.

Malcom leaves a hint the day before their encounter of what he is wanting, buy bookmarking an erotic painting in her art catalog. I must say I googled every art photo… so I could picture what to expect. Loved it, and was educated on the “erotic” art world in the past. They would relive what was in the painting.

Their encounters were like a “dream”. Malcolm would be able to change the back room of the art gallery to be the scene of the painting. It was pretty “unreal”.

I loved how the author is able to really make you feel like you were taken back to that time, and reliving what you see in the painting. There was all kinds of SEXINESS in this story.
I am someone who likes to be able to “relate” to the characters in the book… “Connect”. I can’t say that I was able to do that… but it really wasn’t necessary. There is no “romance” in this story…well, not really. Yes, Mona starts to fall in love with Malcolm, but that was all part of the deal, after the year, he leaves. Mona doesn’t know if he is married, or why he comes to her for these encounters, other than the sex… and he makes a lot of promises. Does he keep them all? You will have to read this steamy story and find out.

When I read this story… my first thought was, I am a true believer of FATE!

You have Tristan who is looking to just have a one night stand, and goes to a “play party” to have it, before he moves off to another town to be a professor. He has a “history” that will come back to bite him in the butt, but he is trying to rise above it and better himself.

And then on the other side of this, you have Isabelle, she too has had a past. An abusive relationship that almost left her dead. She his now trying to move forward after of living a sheltered life for over a year…everyone trying to protect her and “pamper” her. After everything she has gone through, she has learned that she in interested in the BDSM lifestyle. She has taken the proper steps to learn about it… but she has never experienced it. Isabelle is close with her cousin, who lives the lifestyle and has been invited to her “play party” before she leaves to go off to college. She isn’t looking for a relationship…she knows she is moving away…and she just wants to have some fun.

Isabelle walks into the party, not dressed like the others, but did the best she could after working at the family bakery all day. She grabs the attention of Tristan. Tristan watches her from afar, but finally speaks to her. The connection they had… and the trust that Isabelle had in Tristan was unusual for a first encounter, but it worked.

So they have their “one and done” encounter and then they go their separate ways. Neither spoke of their lives. Then weeks later, they run into each other again, Tristan is the professor, and Isabelle is the student.

Do the continue in their adventures together, or do they forget each other? Oh YES… THEY DO!

This is a sweet and sexy story and loved every minute of it… She was.. At His Mercy, and it was GOOD!
