On Thursday Mona shared an ARC review of Call Me Wild by Robin Kaye
She doesn’t know a single thing about relationships…
Unemployed sportswriter Jessie James plans to make a killing writing a bestselling romance novel. She’s never read one, but really, how hard can it be? Moving cross–country to a borrowed house in Idaho, Jessie starts her research with the first gorgeous guy she runs into…
Luckily, he knows everything…
Sports doctor Fisher Kincaid notices Jessie right away—the transplanted Easterner sticks out like a sore thumb in the small town. When he discovers she’s researching attraction and romance, he graciously offers himself as a test subject. That’s when everything starts to go wrong, and they both find out how much they need a few good lessons in love… READ REVIEW
And on Friday Mona is here with a review of The Siren by Tiffany Reisz
In the world of kink authors, she’s the top.
Notorious Nora Sutherlin is famous for her delicious works of erotica, each one more popular with readers than the last. But her latest manuscript is different—more serious, more personal—and she’s sure it’ll be her breakout book…if it ever sees the light of day.
Zachary Easton holds Nora’s fate in his well-manicured hands. The demanding British editor agrees to handle the book on one condition: he wants complete control. Nora must rewrite the entire novel to his exacting standards—in six weeks—or it’s no deal.
Nora’s grueling writing sessions with Zach are draining…and shockingly arousing. And a dangerous former lover has her wondering which is more torturous—staying away from him…or returning to his bed?
Nora thought she knew everything about being pushed to your limits. But in a world where passion is pain, nothing is ever that simple. READ REVIEW

Next Week on Paperback Dolls…
On Monday Kira Brady will be here for a Guest Blog and Giveaway for Hearts of Darkness!
On Tuesday author J.C. Daniels (AKA Shiloh Walker) will answer our questions on the Blade Song blog tour!
Then, Doll Believer reviews Blade Song!
So why is she so nervous? It probably has something to do with the insanity that happens when you deal with shifters—especially sexy ones who come bearing promises of easy jobs and easier money.
Or maybe it’s all the other missing kids that Kit discovers while working the case, or the way her gut keeps screaming she’s gotten in over her head. Or maybe it’s because if she fails—she’s dead.
If she can stay just one step ahead, she should be okay. Maybe she’ll even live long to collect her fee
On Wednesday Noa will be sharing how she discovered Georgette Heyer for a special Sourcebooks 110th birthday anniversary feature – and there’s a giveaway!
On Thursday It’s Over 18s Only Day with Chrissy as she reviews two books:
First there’s Aqua Erotica – an anthology edited by Mary Anne Mohanraj
Imagine a hot tub party where a married couple tests the boundaries of fidelity. A model who finds herself unaccountably aroused as she poses for a watercolor artist. A pool of water on a desert road and two lovers who know how to make the most of it. This is Aqua Erotica, a sensuous tasting of desire’s liquid, ecstatic other worlds.
Aqua Erotica is a siren’s song, a book so unforgettably sexy that you will want to take it with you to the bath, the sauna, the night-lit pool.
What’s amazing is that you can.
The first-ever waterproof book for adults. The most seductive collection of original literary erotica ever gathered under one cover.
Aqua Erotica is a book that quite literally goes places you never imagined books could go. Featuring today’s boldest erotic voices.
Then it’s The Soothing Soak edited by Melcher Media
From the same team that produced the wildly popular “Aqua Erotica comes “The Soothing Soak: A Bathtub Reader, a collection of sensuous and spiritually uplifting stories, meditations, and poetry. “The Soothing Soak is the perfect companion for bathers in search of solitude, relaxation, and revelation, and features lyrical journeys of self-discovery by best-selling and prize-winning authors such as Diane Ackerman, A. S. Byatt, Lao Tzu, D. H. Lawrence, Barry Lopez, Rumi, Henry David Thoreau, and Terry Tempest Williams. Printed in Melcher Media’s patented waterproof DuraBook format, readers can take the book right into a warm bath and unwind with it. Filled with luminous writings that celebrate the balanced life, this book is the perfect antidote to a stressful day.
On Friday Noa reviews Gunmetal Magic by Ilona Andrews
Some people have everything figured out — Andrea Nash is not one of those people. After being kicked out of the Order of Knights of Merciful Aid, Andrea’s whole existence is in shambles. All she can do is try to put herself back together, something made easier by working for Cutting Edge, a small investigative firm owned by her best friend, Kate Daniels.
When several shapeshifters working for Raphael Medrano — the male alpha of Clan Bouda and Andrea’s former lover — die unexpectedly at a dig site, Andrea is assigned to investigate … and must work with Raphael. As her search for the killer leads her into the secret underbelly of supernatural Atlanta, Andrea knows that dealing with her feelings for Raphael might have to take a backseat to saving the world
Then Eowyn reviews I’m Taking My Eggs and Going Home: How One Woman Dared to Say No to Motherhood by Lisa Manterfield
Lisa Manterfield was a sensible 32-year-old when she met The One—a man who sparked a passion for tango, an urge to break down closed doors, and a deep-rooted desire to reproduce. Five years later she was a baby addict, hiding her addiction, plotting a maternity ward heist, and threatening anything that got in her way, including her beloved husband and his pesky practicality.
In this gritty and honest memoir, Manterfield traces her spiraling route from rational 21st century woman to desperate mama-wannabe. She examines the siren song of motherhood, the insidious lure of the fertility industry, and the repercussions of being childless in a mom-centric society. But this isn’t just another infertility story with another miracle baby ending, nor is it a sad introspective of a childless woman; this is a story about love, desire, and choices—and ultimately about hope. It is the story of a woman who escapes her addiction, not with a baby, but with her sanity, her marriage, and her sense-of-self intact.
Finally, on Saturday it’s time to find out what’s on the Dolls’ wishlists! This time with Mona!
