“What Goes Up” by Celia Kyle
When the man you love inexplicably
breaks up with you, what’s a girl to do? For Ashley, the
answer is to plan a surprise for her ex, Trevor, that would
bring him to his knees…literally. Trevor is shocked to find
his sexy ex dressed as a Domme and walking into his
elevator, but he’s not about to complain. The tables may
have turned on him, but for Trevor, things are looking up
for the first time in months.
It’s rare to find a story where the
heroine is the dominant party, but Ashley sure knows how to
dish it out and keep Trevor in line. Celia Kyle delivers a
wickedly delicious tale that is both sexy and fun. Ashley
is cheeky and endearing. Trevor is smart enough to know when
he’s been wrong and is redeemable in his love for Ashley.
As for Trevor’s best friend Richard, Ms. Kyle definitely has
created an intriguing, decadent character in him and I

Up” is a sinfully sparkling tale that is sure to give you a
“Heavenly Bodies” by Renae Johnson
For Samantha Beasley, life couldn’t get
any better. Her career has taken off and the curvy
comedienne is just about to have her first headlining act.
But Samantha’s luck quickly changes when a freak blender
accident leaves her dead and standing at the Pearly Gates in
front of her very own “angel of hotness.”
Adam Rivera is Samantha’s guardian
angel and as such, his mission is to take Samantha back to
the very day she died and keep his charge alive. His plan
is to keep Samantha in the house all day and far, far away
from blenders. Now the two just have to find a way to pass
the time, and Samantha definitely has a plan for that.
Angel of hotness indeed! Renae Johnson
delivers a heavenly story that is hot-as-hell. Samantha is
straightforward and fun, comfortable in her own skin and
possesses both a sharp wit and a winning personality. Adam,
in turn, is protective, sweet, and completely worthy of his
“angel of hotness” title. I’d call him adorable, but the
word doesn’t seem masculine enough to suit him. “Heavenly
Bodies” is a mouth-watering, entertaining read that I
It’s easy for me to see why Ms. Kyle
and Ms. Johnson won the March Madness contest at Loose Id.
Going Up, Going Down is a fresh and fun
anthology with two sizzling good stories. Both stories are
excellent and I read Going Up, Going Down from
start to finish without stopping. I look forward to reading
more stories from each of these authors.
