  1. Glad you did this post! I think I must have missed some of these review posts. I need to go back and catch the Kit Rocha ones. I’ve been wondering about that series. I absolutely loved After Hours. Sad to see it getting lots of negative reviews. Glad you enjoyed it. I think Cara McKenna is admirably brave with the topics and characters she chooses to write about. Been hearing good things about Kristen Ashley for awhile. Avoiding her, as I don’t have time for any new crack in my life at the moment 😉

    • Oh I love Kit Rocha, last I checked her first book Beyond Shame is only 0.99 on Kindle but Im pretty sure that is temporary. Look out for some very creative sexy times with this series.

      I dont know why After Hours would get bad reviews! It is well written and the characters are completely realistic as well as the story line is real. On top of that Kelly was sexy as hell all growly and demanding but with a soft side!

      Oh Kristen Ashley is total crack! If you start and you like, there is no stopping it. Tho I think she is a love or hate author. If you love laughs sassy females and seriously alpha males you’ll love KA! If you start reading these I expect a report back!

      • I really hope the characters in After Hours are realistic. I hold out hope there is a Kelly out there in my future! LOL I love sexy, tough guys, with a soft side. The ones that are actually the good guys when you get to know them and they are like, loyal and responsible too. *sighs*

        It may be a while before I dare to sample the KA crack, but I’ll be sure to let you know. I can’t review contemps on my site, so I’ll definitely need someone to talk to about it.

      • Aw man i totally want a Kelly too! LOL. MAybe it isn’t so realistic… LOL JK

        What can’t review CR o your site??? I say its your site yo can do whatever you want! LOL

        If you ever want to do a guest review over here just let me know. We are up for it. =)
