Screw Up 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟Review

“The sex is explicit (it’s an erotic novel) but it explores how coupling is sexy, fun, sometimes awkward, sometimes funny, all things that we have all experienced, and even some that we haven’t (hopefully)!”

More review praise:

“one thing’s for sure: you’ll end up wanting to read more about Hollywood’s “nightmare”, the Tinseltown Temptress!”

“I could see the real woman behind both of these personas: the actual one and the put on one. The voices are never incompatible, even when the Tinseltown Temptress’ writing is clearly exaggerated and amplified for the specific audience. The erotica is great, but it never overshadows the characters and the emotion of the story. And, of course, it doesn’t hurt that the book is very, very funny.”

Again he gave her that wide mouthed toothy smile. “Fair enough. I want to start up a column, a sex column, about what it’s like to, you know, be with them.”

Wednesday Check In: so many hoops…

Trying to tick off some boxes on my week’s to do list this morning. Unfortunately, each task spawns four more as soon as I begin them. And my little ones are bts in less than 2 weeks!

to do

I have some reviews to write for a few authors from one of my fb groups. What an incredible source of free ebooks. Wow. I asked for freebies in exchange for review and got ten in one afternoon. My kindle’s tbr is full!

Our painting business is busy, busy this time of year. Always lots to do for that enterprise.

Working on the final details to finish off TinseltownTemptress Book 2: Screwing Around. It is almost completely formatted and ARCs will be ready in a couple of weeks. Be sure to sign up for my mailing list for more info there.

TT3: SO is still in 1st revision stages as is Jupiter. So that writing is keeping me pretty busy.

What does your week look like? Read anything great lately?

Book Review | Living All Day, or why I love Aidra Scott

Do yourself a favor and read the latest release from M.H.Mead, Living All Day (A Detroit Next novel). It is fascinating, near future sci-fi and a gripping murder mystery from start to finish. Not only is it a fantastic how-done-it, but it also tackles some serious ethical and moral questions mankind will be facing in the not so distant future. The secondary characters are all engaging, often witty, sexy, neurotic, impulsive. All very real. The main character, Aidra, is a pleasure to follow through the twists and turns of her intrigue filled life as a private investigator. She’s working literally around the clock to keep the lights on, her caline fed, and her son in school. Her relationships with her sister, Quinn, is fantastic and nuanced. The on-again-off-again, confusing nature of Aidra’s thing with her friend Morris has just the right amount of angst, and as a romance lover, it makes me yearn for more. Get this fantastic book.

Book Review | In Vicki Vantoch’s The Threesome Handbook, more’s the merrier when you play by the rules

 

vantochcoverpers

Author and sexual historian Vicki Vantoch weaves interviews, research, and personal experience together in her guide to threesome sex and triad relationships. As well as highlighting the positives of such unions: less codependency, hotter sex (truly, there are diagrams), she also anticipates the negatives and counsels how to avoid making huge, sexy mistakes.

She explains that though she is a bit of a square, citing that she’s even married to her high school sweetheart (actor, Misha Collins), “everyone’s got a kinky side” and then proceeds to share a lot about hers. This personal section shows her to be a thoughtful and extremely curious woman that anyone reading would want to befriend. It ends with a warning that the advice she has given might turn your life upside down, which only heightens the anticipation for the fun ahead. She sprinkles other personal anecdotes (without naming names) throughout, continually reminding us that she doesn’t just talk the talk. The fact that she is coming from a place of experience lends her loads of credibility.

Everyone worries about jealousy in threesomes, and she addresses it frankly saying, “Jealousy is a bitch.” Then, rather than serving up empty platitudes to write the problem away, she maintains that learning to process through hard emotions with good communication can lead to personal growth and enhanced intimacy. “Learning to manage jealousy can lead you to a sweet spot inside yourself, where you feel so confident you no longer seek validation from anyone else. And that’s a beautiful thing.”

Vantoch has interviewed medical professionals, sex workers, friends, and more to provide a well balanced take on the many emotional, spiritual and physical issues that introducing additional sexual partners into your love life can bring. These anecdotes make it clear that she is not alone in her advocacy for ethical polyamory. Also, they round out the topic by sharing specific details about what goes on behind their own closed doors, unshrouding the mystery so often forced onto these human experiences.

Much of the advice found in this handbook can be boiled down to the essential element present in all good relationships: communication. In every chapter, it is repeated and rephrased that honest and open communication is the only way in which these events can resolve into happy endings. Many examples of poor versus good communications skills are played out to hammer the point home and emphasize its importance. Still, she acknowledges that people unused to expressing their emotions fully will have trouble with this aspect of her advice, and that perhaps threeways are just not for them.

Solid quotes and statistics help back up the idea that being open, sharing your love occasionally, and/or committing to more than one sexual partner can aide people’s personal growth and journey through life. The research compiled and utilized to support the choice of this path is wide in scope and helps reflect a nuanced approach to broadening erotic horizons. She quotes Jalal ad-Din Rumi, a Persian poet and mystic as saying, “If you could untie your wings/ And free your soul of jealousy/ You and everyone around you/ Would fly up like doves.” A ringing endorsement for mass coupling if ever one existed.

The book gets repetitive at times, especially concerning safe sex practices. But the latex lectures don’t detract too much from this insider’s tour of the wilder side of romance.

The Threesome Handbook is a fascinating read for all adults, whether they have “secret dreams of reinventing their love lives” or not. Vantoch covers a lot of sexual and emotional ground, and though there are more than a few titillating passages (Did I mention the diagrams and that at least one of her threesome partners is a huge television and social media star?) the practical relationship advice makes this guide helpful for all types of respectful, honest, and loving partnerships, no matter what the head count.
