Book Description:


Talia indulges her sexual pleasures, turning her life into a twisted mess. Sleeping with Alex is dangerous and reckless. She craves that excitement. Loving Will is comforting and safe. She needs that stability. Why can’t she get everything she wants from one man?


Will has everything under control, and watching his girlfriend flirt with his best friend fuels his lust for her. He loves Talia, and he trusts Alex. It’s all good… as long as he makes the rules.


Alex doesn’t give a damn about rules. He knows how to play with fire without getting burned. It’s just sex with Talia. No emotions means no attachments — that’s one rule he won’t break.


Sometimes dirty little secrets are more dirty than secret.

#1: Rated PG-13


“How can you do this to me?” I moaned.

He just laughed.

“How can you do this to yourself?”

His hand slipped on the damp sheet and he sank deeper into me.

I was getting to him. “I know you want me. You haven’t been able to keep your hands off me all day.”

He’d kept finding excuses to pull over and make out.

“How can you hold back now when all you want to do is make me scream?”

Something devious flashed in his dark blue eyes and he faked a yawn. “It’s been a long day, and we have another long day ahead of us tomorrow. I’m pretty tired.” He pulled out and rolled over, turning off the light. “Sweet dreams, darlin’.”

“I don’t think so.” I threw my body against him, pushing him onto his back. I wriggled onto his lap, and smiled when his eyes rolled back in his head. “Now I’m in control.”

He moaned and let me thrust down on him once, almost twice. “Not for long.”

He flipped me on my back and I squealed. He spread my legs and rubbed up and down my pink flesh. When he slipped in, I wrapped my legs around his waist and tried to pull him in deeper, but he held my thighs apart and teased me with the tip again.

My body started to ache and burn. I needed more, and he knew it. I pinched my nipples with one hand, reaching down to stroke my button with the other.

He grabbed my hands and held them above my head. “Nope.”

But my legs were free, and I tried to pull him in again.

“I gotta find something to tie you down with.”



Where to start with this one?  Its definitely twisted, profane, erotic, and different.  I’m going to break the review up in what I liked, what I didn’t like and my overall impression.


I liked the writing.  Its told in three different POV’s but I never got confused or lost.  In a ménage, you don’t always understand the motivation or the feelings from all the people in a ménage but in Her Twisted Pleasures you get that.  I normally don’t like the pseudo cheating or baby talk in a book but this one has it but in a way it makes sense.  The cheating isn’t cheating because Will has given Talia permission to sleep with Alex.  She does but little does she realize that Will watches.  The sex is O.M.G., panty melting, need a hose/vibe and hot.




A big turn off for me in a book is cheating.  Yes, in real life people cheat but to give your partner permission to cheat is just wrong.  And to watch it happen.  Major ick factor for me.  That is one of many reasons I didn’t care for Will that much.  He seemed like  a very weak character to me.  In some ways, I blame him for the ending.  Its not a HEA but really an HFN for everyone involved.  There are many unresolved issues that are not explained and I hope that in book 2, we will get to understand it.  Alex to me was the most arrogant male that I’ve read in a long time.  I could understand why Talia was attracted to him but if she only wanted sex with him, then she shouldn’t have developed anything more than sex for sex’s sake.

Overall impression:

Overall, I found the book to be interesting, twisted and sexy.  The writing was crisp and the plot flowed well, too.  Once I decided to forget the moral code for awhile, the book was great fun and I can’t wait to see what happens to Talia, Will and Alex in the next book.





About the Author:


I got hooked on trashy romance novels in junior high, but my mom took them away from me. She couldn’t stop me from daydreaming, though. After I got married, I wrote some of my naughtier daydreams down and sent them to Playgirl magazine, which published two of them. I kept daydreaming and writing stories until my dirty stories turned into trashy books.


I live in Colorado, but I’ll always be a loyal Wisconsin Cheesehead. When I’m not lusting after my next bad boy hero, I’m looking for inspiration in sci-fi and action movies, football players, bloodsucking lawyers, muscle cars, and kick-butt chicks.


I’m known as “”Trashy Writer”” at various social media sites. I call myself a trashy writer because I want my readers to know that I enjoy mindless escapism as much as they do. I’m not out to win a Pulitzer Prize. I just want to help someone relax and get away from it all for a little while. I write romance, erotica and trash for fun and pleasure.
