The Exchange – Nikki Rashan – Review

By at August 26, 2013 | 12:45 pm | 0 Comment

The Exchange

What a great book, so well written. The thoughts the actions the result of their actions all played out and put down on paper so eloquently in this book. You really get inside the head of Kyla and Asia as they hit relationship meltdown. You get both sides of the story per chapter; what they are thinking, what the other will think, how friends react to the news, reading

The Glass Factory – Ken Wishnia – Book Review

The Glass Factory

I really enjoyed this book. I had not heard of the Filomena Wishnia books before but will definitely look out for them in the future. Filomena is an ex cop with a grudge, a well deserved grudge against a chap that has to all intense and purposes murdered her - you will have to read the book to understand what I mean. Filomenia is a brilliantly conceived

The Hardest Thing – James Lear – Review

By at August 18, 2013 | 3:19 pm | 0 Comment

Firstly just to say this is not a book written for lesbians, it’s a crime thriller for gay men but that being said it’s a great romp of a thriller with quite a lot of sex!  Like a porn version of Jack Reacher. Dan Stagg is an ex marine who lost his job due to the ‘don’t ask don’t tell’ position the army take in America, sadly once he ‘told’ he was

Les Invisibles – Review

les invisibles temp

This is a very engrossing film. We live in an age now where really our sexuality is of little consequence, I know in some countries this is not so but my reality as a 41 year old lesbian has been that even in the last 20 years or so such huge inroads have taken place that sometimes I take it for granted. Watching this film made me pause and think again how very lucky I am

Violetas – Film Review

Violetas

This film comprises of 6 short vignettes depicting women seducing women in unexpected situations. They certainly are an eclectic mix of stories and tend to leave you guessing until the end, each story has a twist in the tale… Story 1 A young girl moves out of her apartment to let another girl move in, the sister of the chap that owns the room. He casually mentions

Wild Girls, Wild Nights edited by Sacchi Green – Review + Competition

What a sizzling read, right from the offset this book is page after page of pure sex but we aren’t talking fantasy here, no this tomb is real life stories. Memories of past erotica re-lived within these pages, what ever your taste, there will be a story here for you. My favourites were Alisson Wonderland, brilliant writing style similar to that of Tom Robbins, I thought
