Review for Aboard Pleasure


Title: Aboard Pleasure 
Author: Suzanne Graham 
Publisher: Total E Bound 
Reviewer: Barbara McCormick 
from Just Erotic Romance Reviews
Rating: Silver Star
Heat Level: O

Violet, a contract lawyer, practically had to be pushed aboard the luxury cruise ship, Pleasure. Luckily for her, her two best friends were not to be dissuaded from dragging her out for a vacation. Once aboard the ship, she accidentally encounters Alec and Theo, a pair of Greek cousins. At her friends’ prompting, Violet takes a chance and accepts their invitation for a drink. As she sheds more and more of her inhibitions, she, Alec, and Theo have an incredible night of pleasure. Thinking this can only be a shipboard fling, Violet sneaks away after the men fall asleep. Alec and Theo, though, aren’t going to let her go so easily.

Aboard Pleasure turned out to be an unexpected pleasure. I didn’t really think a ménage story could be romantic, particularly in such a short format. I was mistaken on both counts! The main characters are beautifully drawn and developed. Violet is so easy to identify with, any overworked woman who longs for a fantasy vacation will recognize her right away. Alec and Theo are like Greek boys-next-door and gentleman to boot. Ms. Graham deftly uses conversation among the characters to flesh out their backgrounds, making them three-dimensional without wasting words. Violet’s two friends are well-drawn without intruding on Violet’s story. Alec and Theo gently but firmly entice Violet into their arms with so much foreplay, I almost died of the heat before making it to the main event. And such a night the three of them had! Their ménage a trois is lovingly described, deepening the romance between them. After the remarkable sex, the final scene had me sniffling, as they worked their way to a happy ending. The pacing of this story is magnificent, keeping the reader enthralled from the first page to the last. With engaging characters, a lovely romantic story and amazing sex, Aboard Pleasure really deserves the Silver Star Award. Bon voyage!

Guest Today - Paige Turner!

Today, I'd like to introduce Paige Turner who is celebrating her very first release with Total-e-Bound.com.

Paige, tell us what got you started in erotic romance?

I’ve always made up stories and played make-believe, ever since I was a tiny little scrap of a thing. And I’ve always enjoyed the saucier side of mainstream romance. So erotic romance was an obvious next step for me, both as a reader and as a writer.

What do you like about erom compared to the other genres?

Writing erotic romance allows me to play. Romance is central in every story, of course, but that relationship can play out in a modern office setting, against a backdrop of distant galaxies in the far-flung future, or a hundred and fifty years ago with the cast of characters in top hats and fancy waistcoats. It can be funny or scary or sad. And at the end of the story, the characters I’ve fallen a little bit in love with all live happily ever after.

What is your favorite relationship from your books? Tell us a little about it.

In Temporary Trouble, the heroes play practical jokes on their office mates to relieve the monotony of their temp jobs. The dynamic between them was such fun to write – two naughty, lively young men who frankly deserve the spanking they’re eventually given!

How do you manage your productivity? Do you write a set amount of words per day?

I try to write every day – it might be 80 words or it might be 8,000. More often it’s somewhere between the two. Of course there are days when time-waster sites on the internet sing their siren song, or real life gets in the way, but I’m usually keen to get back to my latest story and find out what happens next.

 If you could be anywhere in the world, where is your dream writing space? Why?

My writing space is at home on the settee, under a blanket, with my cat sitting next to me and my husband catering to my insatiable thirst for tea. You can keep your sun-kissed beaches or stunning Alpine views – as far as I’m concerned, there’s nowhere else I’d rather be!

Thank you, Paige, for being a guest today. 
I wish you tons of success with your book!

Back to School

Oh, boy! First day of school, and I have to admit I was as nervous as the kids, but I tried to hide it better. Deep breath and let it out slowly.

Now, I'm home alone with MY music playing and a sense of peace and quiet surrounding me. The challenge is to use this time productively. That shouldn't be a problem since I have several goals in front of me that I WILL meet this week.

I'm excited to have two new releases coming soon from Resplendence Publishing.

Never Letting Go is an Exotic Gem, part of RP's newest line of shortie short stories. This little morsel of yummy sexiness can be yours on Wednesday, September 21, for only 99 cents! Never Letting Go is a departure from my usual menages. This is a coming out story of two best friends who can no longer deny their attraction for each other. It's my first published F/F love story.

Then on October 19, my next book will be released. Four Aces is a menage a quatre, sure to satisfy your cravings for three men and a woman!
