Tales of the Odalisque by Josie Litton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I think this is the book I’d recommend if you wanted to start reading Josie Litton’s work. Tales of the Odalisque is a sensual, sumptuous, richly thrilling novella that is perfect to read in one or two sittings. If you’re in the mood for something a little sexy, a little taboo, and a little mysterious, then I suggest you give this erotic tale a read.
Having read His Lordship’s Downfall, parts 1 and 2, I can say that this isn’t QUITE as scandalous. If you finished those works and are dying for more naughty tales, I don’t think Tales will satisfy that. All things considered, I found it tame compared to Adrian’s story of wicked debauchery. BUT. That being said, I thought it was fabulous. I loved both main characters. I want to see so much more of them, with Lucius teaching and dominating and being the sexy bad boy that he is. I could definitely read more from this universe, and I’m thrilled at that my opinion isn’t in the minority, and Ms. Litton will be expanding the universe in the future.
GIVE IT TO ME. MY BODY IS READY.

Little Dancer by Brianna Hale
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Once again, I’m super thrilled to have found Brianna Hale. She’s been added to my must-read author list, and I’ll definitely give every book she’s got a try.
I docked one star from Little Dancer only because I didn’t find myself enjoying the DD/lg dynamic as much as I did in her other works. I found Abby to be a little too young, a little too helpless in the big bad adult world, and I just didn’t vibe with her because of it. The writing was still great, and the sex scenes were more plentiful and steamier, but Abby was just too much of a little for me. And, really, that comes down to personal preference more than anything. People who really dig the kink will likely enjoy the dynamic!

Christmas at Bramley Cottage: five heart-warming short stories by Samantha Rose
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is a fantastic collection of short stories set at Bramley Cottage. You get a little taste of everything here, and once again Samantha Rose proves that she is an author who can really draw the emotion out of me. I shed several tears across multiple of these stories; the author has a real knack for articulating life’s struggles with nuance and tact. Really well done, and definitely a recommended read around the holidays!
