    "Gabriel's Inferno revolves around two main characters, Dante specialist Professor Gabriel Emerson (The Professor) and one of his students, the innocent (and virginal) Julia Mitchell. Gabriel is a flawed and tortured man, who because of things in his past, continuously punishes himself. Okay, I had no idea that this book was fan fiction, but I have to admit, I really enjoyed it! I would give this story 3.5/4 stars."

    "I could not finish the book. I wanted to see how it ended, but Janie was too annoying. How did the author thinks, while writing this book, that she was funny or entertaining? She is annoying and kind of clueless. The author puts so much attention on Janie's stupid nonsensical talk that she neglects to give us any information about Quinn. He is so mysterious to the point that he too is annoying. I would not recommend this book."

    "I mean who doesn't love some smutty novel with romance and BDSM? Backstage Pass is a good story, and great piece of erotica. It gets the job done without being too lowbrow as well. "

    "This book was able to provide me just what I need before I go to sleep at night. It combines an amazing sensual backdrop with a compelling and complex story line. The author is clearly an intelligent person that caters to the their intelligent audience, such as myself. The book does a good job of walking the line between senseless erotica and deep intellectual and thought provoking prose. "

    "A brief summary of “Consequences” is in order here because I reference it throughout my review: Claire Nichols was drugged, kidnapped, and imprisoned. During her stay at Anthony Rawlings’ home, she was raped multiple times, severely beaten into a coma and psychologically scarred by Anthony Rawlings into submission and dependency. In addition, Anthony Rawlings destroyed her brother-in-law’s career and had him imprisoned, isolated Claire from her sister and almost destroyed their relationship, he was involved in the death of Claire’s ex and her parents, and finally he set up his own attempted murder to frame his wife resulting in her incarceration in prison besmirching her name in the media and destroying her reputation among their friends. She was in prison and thanks to Tony, she basically had no one. Okay…here we go again down the rabbit hole. Thanks to a dying governor and a persistent attorney, Claire was given a pardon and released from prison. She fled Iowa to find sanctuary in California with her late ex’s former fiancée and her brother. She had no one she could trust in Iowa, all of her friends were financially tied to Tony, and any contact she had with them was hidden. Anthony Rawlings is a true psychopath and my opinion really didn’t change with book two. He wants to dominate and control everyone, uphold appearances at all costs, and destroy those who get in his way. His behavior does not seem to have changed; instead, he seems to be trying a new method to getting Claire back and finds her newfound confidence and independence sexy…her fight to gain control of her life once again is like foreplay for him. But his final motivation is to get her back any way possible."
