The Twist by Lee Silver

A recommended read.

5 stars.

The Twist by Lee Silver is one of the most fascinating books that I've read in a long time. The story which takes place in the world of big business and high tech genetic research, is filled with interesting and very likable characters, humor, and above all a completely unique story. This is one book that is definitely a keeper!

So if you're a fan of witty clever stories with a touch of science fiction thrown in then you are going to love The Twist...

Zane Tollison’s wife is running through their cash faster than he can make it. A “Hail Mary” contract with Clearwater Tobacco arrives in the nick of time to keep his fledgling consulting firm afloat, and to unchain him once and for all from his narcissistic wife.

Beautiful, brilliant, and estranged Kathy Davis is desperate for a new beginning. The feisty post doc bio-geneticist jumps at an offer from Clearwater, pouring her soul into a development that will revolutionize the tobacco industry.

The two are unwittingly reeled into a convoluted plan to steal $12 million. Zane is changing into a carbon copy of Kathy, a pawn in a bizarre genetic metamorphosis, entangling Kathy in a sinewy web of seduction and deceit. Forging a bond that will set the course of their destiny, they fight to overpower the diabolic hold that has taken over their lives.

Pleasure Unbound by Larissa Ione

4.5 stars.

Pleasure Unbound is book one of a hot and sexy new erotic paranormal series by Larissa Ione. The story which is completely fascinating, takes place in a dark new world where the lines between good and evil blur. A place where your worst enemy might in fact turn out to be the love of your life.

You will find the world building to be superb and all of the characters, even the villains to be extremely interesting, so much so that I can't wait for the sequel Desire Unchained which is due to be released in Feb. 2009...

In a place where ecstasy can cost you your life…
She’s a demon-slayer who hungers for sensual pleasure—but fears it will always be denied her. Until Tayla Mancuso lands in a hospital run by demons in disguise, and the head doctor, Eidolon, makes her body burn with unslakable desire. But to prove her ultimate loyalty to her peers, she must betray the surgeon who saved her life.

Two lovers will dare to risk all.
Eidolon cannot resist this fiery, dangerous woman who fills him with both rage and passion. Not only is she his avowed enemy, but she could very well be the hunter who has been preying upon his people. Torn between his need for the truth and his desire to find his perfect mate before a horrific transformation claims him forever, Eidolon will dare the unthinkable—and let Tayla possess him, body and soul…

Dangerous Secrets by Lisa Marie Rice

5 Stars.
Dangerous secrets is a fast paced and very enjoyable new thriller by Lisa Marie Rice.This is one of those books that you don't want to put down, the story is just that good! It features a tall dark and very sexy hero,a beautiful damsel in distress,and a truly evil villain who will make your blood run cold...

The author has done an excellent job with her character building, and I found the characters to be extremely interesting and likable. At times I even found myself feeling sorry for villain because of the torture that he'd endured in a Russian prison...

This book, although it does have sex in it, isn't as explicit as some erotic romances. This probably is because the hero is more of a right to the point kind of lover. Luckily for him Charity seems to be the same kind of gal, otherwise it probably wouldn't work for them...

Small-town librarian Charity Prewitt never dreamed she'd meet and fall in love with a man like Nicholas Ames. The handsome, rich, charming, sexy-as-hell millionaire blew into tiny Parker's Ridge, Vermont, and immediately rocked her world. Powerful, sensual, the perfect man, Nick knows all the right words—and all the right spots to touch, sending her soaring to dizzying new heights of ecstatic abandon. Never before has prim and proper Charity leapt into bed with a perfect stranger—and now that she's there with him, nothing is going to drag her away!

But Nick Ames is not who he claims to be. In truth, he is Nicholas Ireland—the one they call "Iceman." A former Delta Force operator, now a high-level undercover agent, he will do whatever his government asks of him—lie, seduce, betray . . . even kill, if necessary—for the sake of the mission. And this time his mission is Charity Prewitt.

Suddenly one woman has broken down his chilly restraint and ignited his passions completely. And before the erotic dream turns into a nightmare, will Charity be able to melt the Iceman's cold, cold heart?
