Last Week on Paperback Dolls…



On Monday it was time for a Two Doll with review as Mona and Chrissy reviewed Initiation by Imogen Rose

Welcome to Bonfire Academy. Set in the foothills of the alpine mountains in St.Moritz, this exclusive private school caters to a special kind of student. Enter at your own risk… but if you are human, you may not want to enter at all.

This is part one of the prequel series (Bonfire Academy) in the Bonfire Chronicles. Book two, INTEGRATION, will be released summer 2012. READ REVIEW



On Tuesday Chrissy was back with her Over 18′s only review this time Alyson Tyler’s Skirting the Issue

Skirting the Issue features a trio of dirty stories all based on a common theme: The Catholic Schoolgirl Skirt. Erotic writers Sophia Valenti, Sommer Marsden, and Alison Tyler have each contributed one naughty tale to the mini-anthology. READ REVIEW






On Wednesday Noa shared an ARC review of Lee Child’s A Wanted Man

Four people in a car, hoping to make Chicago by morning. One man driving, eyes on the road. Another man next to him, telling stories that don’t add up. A woman in the back, silent and worried. And next to her, a huge man with a broken nose, hitching a ride east to Virginia.

An hour behind them, a man lies stabbed to death in an old pumping station. He was seen going in with two others, but he never came out. He has been executed, the knife work professional, the killers vanished. Within minutes, the police are notified. Within hours, the FBI descends, laying claim to the victim without ever saying who he was or why he was there.

All Reacher wanted was a ride to Virginia. All he did was stick out his thumb. But he soon discovers he has hitched more than a ride. He has tied himself to a massive conspiracy that makes him a threat—to both sides at once.

In Lee Child’s white-hot thriller, nothing is what it seems, and nobody is telling the truth. As the tension rises, the twists come fast and furious, keeping readers guessing and gasping until the explosive finale. READ REVIEW

On Thursday Believer reviewed Hidden Crimes by Emma Holly

Cats and dogs aren’t supposed to fall in love. Like any wolf, RPD detective Nate Rivera knows this. He can’t help it if the tigress he’s been trading quips with at the supermarket is the most alluring woman he’s ever met—sassy too, which suits him down to his designer boots.

Evina Mohajit is aware their flirtation can’t lead to more. Still, she relishes trading banter with the hot werewolf. This hardworking single mom hasn’t felt so female since her twins’ baby daddy left to start his new family. Plus, as a station chief in Resurrection’s Fire Department, she understands the demands of a dangerous job.

Their will-they-or-won’t-they tango could go on forever if it weren’t for the mortal peril the city’s shifter children fall into. To save them, Nate and Evina must team up, a choice that ignites the sparks smoldering between them . . . READ REVIEW

On Tuesday Chrissy is here with her over 18′s review! This time Red Hot Erotica by Alison Tyler

These explicit, playful tales range from the sweetly sensual to the candidly carnal. Bill Noble’s poetic Stardrift” finds a beach runner drawn into an unexpected moonlight ménage. Saskia Walker’s It’s Just Not Cricket” stars fearless bondage queen Ella, whose hobby of tying up languid aristocratic types” is challenged by a randy noble who turns her into a human croquet game. Marilyn Jaye Lewis’s piquant That Summer by Our Pool” is a provocative tour of a woman’s sexual history that exposes old wounds and new lust with a rekindled old flame.



On Wednesday and Thursday we’re introducing you to author Tom Pollock and his new series – The Skyscraper Throne and book 1 – The City’s Son with a review by Noa and a Q&A with author Tom Pollock!

Running from her traitorous best friend and her estranged father, graffiti artist Beth Bradley is looking for sanctuary. What she finds is Urchin, the ragged and cocky crown prince of London’s mystical underworld. Urchin opens Beth’s eyes to the city she’s never truly seen-where vast spiders crawl telephone wires seeking voices to steal, railwraiths escape their tethers, and statues conceal an ancient priesthood robed in bronze.

But it all teeters on the brink of destruction. Amid rumors that Urchin’s goddess mother will soon return from her 15-year exile, Reach, a malign god of urban decay, wants the young prince dead. Helping Urchin raise an alleyway army to reclaim his skyscraper throne, Beth soon forgets her old life. But when her best friend is captured, Beth must choose between this wondrous existence and the life she left behind.



On Friday Mona and Suz will be sharing an ARC review of The Angel (The Original Sinners #2) by Tiffany Reisz

No safe word can protect the heartInfamous erotica author and accomplished dominatrix Nora Sutherlin is doing something utterly out of character: hiding. While her longtime lover, Søren—whose fetishes, if exposed, would be his ruin—is under scrutiny pending a major promotion, Nora’s lying low and away from temptation in the lap of luxury.

Her host, the wealthy and uninhibited Griffin Fiske, is thrilled to have Nora stay at his country estate, especially once he meets her traveling companion. Young, inexperienced and angelically beautiful, Michael has become Nora’s protégé, and this summer with Griffin is going to be his training, where the hazing never ends.

But while her flesh is willing, Nora’s mind is wandering. To thoughts of Søren, her master, under investigation by a journalist with an ax to grind. And to another man from Nora’s past, whose hold on her is less bruising, but whose secrets are no less painful. It’s a summer that will prove the old adage: love hurts.

Finally on Saturday it’s time for our On My Wishlist feature
