Review: Ecstasy by Bella Andre
Book Info

Released: August 1, 2011
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Erotic Romance
Pages: 158

Candace is a Young Adult author who has been seduced by sensual words. Now, she wants to be make the jump from YA fiction into erotica. Nervous about this career change, Candace goes to a convention to affiliate with other erotica authors. There she meets Charlie Gibson, a well-known and loved author of erotica. In their first meeting, Candace makes such an impression that Charlie offers to be her mentor, teaching her the trade.

This is the first book I’ve read by Bella Andre and she gets an A+ from me! I loved the idea of two erotica writers getting together to “research”! It was so unique and really set up the story great. This is a novella, so while short it still packs a lot of heat! There were a few parts that I felt where a little underdeveloped but I think that was moreso due to the length of the book than lack of detail.

But regardless of the length, this book was hot! I enjoyed the little snippets of Charlie and Candy’s work in progress throughout the book. It added more sexiness to an already smutty read.

And yes, I loved Charlie! He is a damn good teacher and I wouldn’t mind him teaching me a thing or two!
