Willow (Flower Child #2) by Moxie Darling

Title: Willow
Author: Moxie Darling 
Series: Flower Child #2
Genre: Erotica

About the Book:

When Willow Spencer receives an intriguing letter from her best friend, she heads to West Virginia with only a suitcase and a lust for adventure. Agreeing to live with a man you’ve never met and be nanny to his three children is a little dangerous and a lot of crazy. In other words? Just what she needs. A wild child at heart, Willow leaves life as she knows it behind without a backwards glance. But when she arrives at the rundown trailer deep in backwoods territory and meets the rough, practically mute mountain man who seems immune to her flirtatious charm, she begins to doubt her decision and her sanity.


This is the second novella in a planned series. It is NOT a full-length book.

(Disclaimer: this novella is for adults only. It contains explicit sex, rough sex, sex with strangers, and sexual situations some might find offensive including dubious consent.)

My Review:

While the first book in this series is pure sex, Willow is more than that. Willow is a friend of Clover’s and agrees to become the nanny for a widower and his three kids. The pay isn’t much, but Willow is bored on the hippy commune and needs a change. One of those changes is a new man/conquest. Willow loves sex and no man can resist her charms. She gets to the trailer and meets Teddy – a loner who shut down after his wife’s death. She puts the moves on him and even though he notices her, he resists and turns her away.  
Willow has her work cut out for her, both with the kids, cleaning the trailer, and Teddy still resists her advances. Until he becomes jealous while they are all at Clover’s for a campout with the kids. Teddy walks in on Jim and Willow about to have sex and demands she go home…with him. On the way home, something happens to change the dynamic of their relationship.

I have to say that I enjoyed this story so much more than Clover. While it is erotica, there is more to the story than just sex. The steamy parts are just that, the funny parts made me laugh out loud, and the angst was well written. Overall, this is a good, short, steamy, sexy, story. 

My Rating: 4 Stars

Bravest Flame (Mythical Knights #1.5) by Candice Gilmer

Take a HOT fireman and an independent woman who doesn’t have time for dating games and you have Chase and Denise from Bravest Flame. Denise and Chase are pushed together in a whirlwind of chaos and danger!

Denise has a life full of work, writing novels, friends, and that’s about all she wants. Chase convinces her to go on a date with him, even though she is reluctant, and what happens on that date is the start of the chaos of being possessed. What she thought was a fantasy world, turns into real life vampires, werewolves, and a slew of other paranormal creatures she could only imagine! While an easy read, the story gripped me and kept me engaged.  Yes, some of the actions are a little over the top, but that’s the beauty of this series. So much happens that moves the story along and create the suspenseful part of the story to push the main characters together. And, together they are in a HOT and passionate way! My kindle was smoking!!

I love Denise and her no nonsense attitude. She is the kind of heroine that I adore in a story. What’s not to like about the sexy, fireman, Chase? He adores Denise and has a protective side when it comes to her. The paranormal characters are fun, witty, and at times, scary (the sheldvaks give me the creeps). The twists and turns kept me engaged. Overall, it’s such a fun way to move this series along!
