Erin Noelle – Translucent – Book Review (Review Copy)



Publisher: Erin Noelle, 2015.
Genre: Romantic Suspense.
Length: 229 pages.

Sometimes shocking, definitely gripping. As per usual Erin Noelle delivers an exquisite production that will trap you in its pages and linger in your mind. A dark, challenging read with a beautiful love story and a chance at redemption.

Blake Martin has a new job, a new name, a new life. She has escaped hell, but it follows her in her dreams. She's a hollow shell, devoid of anything resembling life. When Blake meets Madden Decker, CEO of the tech company she now consults for, he lights a spark inside her again. Instincts tell her to keep everyone out, but Madden doesn't take no for an answer.

Madden lays eyes on Blake across the boardroom table and can't tear them away. She's all sorts of gorgeous and submissive, awakening his dominant side. Madden is very protective and caring towards Blake, right from the start. He quickly realizes she has deep wounds nobody can see. His dominant personality takes control, removing her burdens and pushing away the ghosts of her past for a while. He has his own past he’d rather not relive and a brother who is more like a troublesome child. Only, the trouble he gets himself into also drags Madden along with it.

Blake knows it's only a matter of time before the devil finds her. She did something terrible and retaliation will come. Mafia retaliation. Being with Madden makes her believe she can enjoy whatever time she has left before it all falls apart. She no longer has to hide in her lonely apartment or catalogue every face when she's out. Madden accepts her crazy episodes and knows not to push her to share the awful details about what triggers them. She never wants to tell him. He’ll look at her with disgust instead of seeing her as his Sweet Girl. She’s going to hold on to that ... for as long as it lasts.

Okay, wow. First of all, cliff-hanger warning. Secondly, several flashback scenes made my stomach turn. If you're not okay with violence and gore I'd probably steer clear. Did it make me want to stop reading? Heck no! I wanted to know how the character had survived her horrific past and I wanted to see her heal. I don't think I've ever been more worried about a character's welfare. It's a struggle getting through every hour let alone every day, for Blake.

Madden knows exactly how to handle her. “Slow and steady, sweet girl.” He's thirteen years older, but that's perfect because she needs someone with maturity and self-control. He is a genuine hero. The love story is beautifully choreographed, giving us hope that Blake is going to pull through. Flash backs piece together her past, but also build anticipation towards the climax. Book 2, Transparent is out soon. It's going to be good!

4.5 Flares.

Erin Noelle - MILF-Wrong Kind of Love - Book Review (Review Copy)



Publisher: Erin Noelle, 2015.
Genre: Erotica.
Length: 310 pages.

Grayson Daniels is reluctantly back in Georgia after spending ten months studying in Spain. His mother is marrying Grayson’s best friend’s father after two years of them carrying on an affair behind his wife’s back. Yep, his first and only father figure is a chump. He’s less than pleased with his mother, betraying her friend like that, too. At least it will be official when he calls his best friend, Adam, Bro’.

Mia Sullivan is understandably full of flaming anger at wasting twenty years of her life on a lying, cheating piece of scum. She’d never take back getting pregnant in high school, though. Adam is the best thing that ever happened to her. He has encouraged her to take out her anger in the gym and pursue her passion for painting. She is thriving for the first time in years.

When Grayson’s mother kicks him out of home, Mia and Adam gain another housemate. Grayson isn’t the boy she used to know. He has grown up and filled out. Resisting his charm is impossible. He has decided he wants her and she can’t stop from wanting him. She knows it’s not forever, but if they can keep it under wraps she’s going to enjoy it while it lasts. As long as Adam doesn’t find out.


I love Erin Noelle’s writing style. She immerses the reader in her worlds getting us totally engrossed and empathizing with the characters. How could this possibly end well? There are so many intertwined relationships going on, it’s a tangled web these characters weave.

Even though Mia watched Grayson grow up, he has changed. Living abroad has matured him and a man’s body is vastly different from a teenager’s. Mia, herself has become a gym junkie, lost close to twenty pounds and gained back her passion and vibrancy. She is a gorgeous woman. Grayson is mesmerized by her, her banana pancakes, her painting, everything about her. She struggles with the morality of the situation, Grayson is more black and white. They are both consenting adults and ‘good to go’ as far as he’s concerned.

My heat rating on this story is definitely close to nuclear. This pair are insatiable. The lust isn’t overdone or out of place, though. They are carrying on a whirlwind affair after all, but not at the expense of a developing tender, more intimate connection. It’s totally feasible that these two are drawn to each other, the attraction is well crafted with plenty of humour added in. 


But then there’s always Adam. I honestly didn’t know how the author was going to make this work out. The story begins with a sneak peek of the end. The inevitable is a constant tickle of anticipation as you read along trying to figure out how it’s all going to fall into place. As lust turns to love I got more and more anxious about what was going to happen. So much happens!

I loved going along for the ride on this one. So clever. Reead iiiiittttt!

Erin Noelle - Spark (Fire on the Mountain Book 1) - Book Review






 

Publisher: Erin Noelle, 2015.
Genre: New Adult.
Length: 252 pages.

Crew Elliot and his family have moved from Dallas to the mountains of Colorado in search of a clean lifestyle and treatment for Caleb, Crew's younger brother. Caleb suffers with epilepsy. They’ve exhausted all the traditional methods of treatment and are now going for the unconventional. Marijuana. They arrive at Fire On The Mountain, a resort run by a hippie family with too many beautiful daughters to count, who also happen to grow and sell marijuana for their dispensary. Crew is drawn immediately to one daughter in particular. Hudson Shavell. She's a joint-toking, modern day Rapunzel with a helper mentality. Hudson is prepared to do whatever she can to help Caleb and his family. She wouldn’t mind helping herself to his older brother, Crew. He’s a little bit dangerous and a lot tempting. Even with her lack of experience, something tells her she'll have to be careful not to give too much.



What a ride! I had to have some recovery time after reading this emotional story. I felt pulled apart before being put back together, in a slightly different order. If you or anyone you know is affected by epilepsy, you’ll probably feel the same.

The legalization of marijuana for medicinal use has been a hot topic here in Australia, recently. Erin Noelle illustrates the human realities of this issue. I wanted to join the fight for Caleb to have some normalcy and relief. Reading how Hudson and Crew’s families formed a solid unit of support for Caleb's cause, pulled at my heartstrings.

Hudson has the tendency to be a martyr. She’ll suffer to ease others’ pain and work herself ragged to help where she’s needed. She’s an inherently peaceful soul, but when her world is shaken up, she shows her strength.

Crew will sacrifice whatever he has to so he can help his family. He and Hudson have that in common, but Crew's sacrifices are all for his brother. His world revolves around Caleb's needs. When he meets Hudson he finds that he might actually want something for himself, but reconciling the two proves to be difficult.



This story is so different. It is a definite stand out, in my opinion. I'm really looking forward to the next in the series, Flame.
Brilliant book, Erin Noelle.

5.5 flares.
