Author Feature: After Dark Quick Fire with Lilly Avalon & Novella Reviews

I have added After Dark Reviews to my blog as a way of notifying you of a review of a book with Adult themes and scenes. From now on I will keep my reviews of all books I read that have explicit scenes in them for late night posts for those of you who prefer to avoid them or easy to find for those of you who seek them out ;)
So while we had a nice interview with Lilly Avalon on Tuesday (See HERE) I thought it would be fun to have her answer some quick fire after dark style questions about the perfect stud. So here we go . . .
Long or short hair?
Tattoos or piercings or neither?
~Neither, but I'm cool with either
What color eyes?
Works with his hands or office job?
~With his hands
Jeans & Tshirt, Button down and slacks or board shorts?
~Jeans & T-shirt
If historical what weapon? Sword or Bow and Arrow?
~Bow and Arrow
What would be the best part to unwrap (besides the obvious) Chest? Abs? Arms? Butt? Back?
~Butt, always always always
Haha wasn't that fun?! It was quite an entertaining way to kick off tonight.  I also have reviews of a few of Lilly's novellas.
Synopsis: "Every time Hazel Bell goes on a date, she returns home unhappy and disenchanted about love. At least her best friend Adrian Williams is always there for her, even more so now that they're roommates. After both of them have a bad night out, they decide to just relax and forget the world for awhile. It's been a long time since they've been alone together. They certainly weren't counting on the close quarters bringing out hidden desires. Now it appears their platonic friendship is being put to the test—one that neither can resist. By the end of the night, will it be the end for Hazel and Adrian—or a new beginning?

*Here All Along is an 8000 word erotica short story*"

Synopsis: This is a fun and steamy quick read. It is a short story so you don't get a lot of backstory, just basically one scene, but you don't miss it at all. The characters are well developed and ones you can really enjoy and connect with. The storyline felt familiar like something I have read before but again I enjoyed it so much that I really didn't mind.
My Rating: I really enjoyed this book, it was such a quick and entertaining read. Just right for a nice bedtime story. I give it a rating of Four Paws!
You can obtain your own copy of Here All Along in digital format for FREE from Amazon or Barnes & Noble.

Synopsis: "All of her friends know her as Dana Darling, the clean romance writer. She's never written a steamy novel, not even in her head, but now her publisher needs her to write one. It doesn't appear too difficult at first, but then Dana's lack of sexual knowledge creates writer's block.

That's where her friend Landon comes in. She needs pointers on positions and dirty talk, and he owes her a favor. They agree that it's strictly business and clothes are mandatory, but once they get to work, it's another story entirely... one that's being written between the sheets and not on paper.

*More Than Words is an erotica novella*"

My Review: I really loved this story, it was a light, steamy and quick read. I really enjoyed the concept of the story about need to research for a novel. It is a short story that you can read in one sitting, which normally leaves the reader wanting more, but this one completely fulfills. You aren't left wondering at backstory or with unresolved questions, you would certainly like more time with the characters but you are still satisfied with the ending. 
My Rating: This has been my favorite of Lilly's books so far. I found it to be steamy and yet great at moving the storyline along.  I give it a rating of Four Paws and a Stump Wag!

You can obtain your own copy of More Than Words in digital format for FREE from Amazon or Barnes & Noble.
Synopsis: "After spending the last year pining for her boss, Sara has decided it's time to move on. What's the point of waiting around for Brandon when it's considered inappropriate work behavior to date? A night on the town should be just the thing she needs to get her mind off him—that is, until Brandon shows up."
My Review: This book starts out as something familiar, the classic office lusting but then takes quite a turn. It is a very short read but it certainly keeps you reading to see what will happen next. We don't get to know the characters very well or watch the relationship develop but you don't really miss it. You not left feeling unfulfilled but still wanting more.
My Rating: This was another great novella, a quick read to enjoy in a single sitting. I give this one a rating of Four Paws!
The only way to read Irresistibly Yours is for FREE on Wattpad.
