Too crass and profane.
Boo
I am all up for giving it another go round to see if I change my mind, but this one just didn't do it for me like the others did.
Shannon Dannel
I liked everything about this book; including both characters, the story line and the added writings of the main characters.

Ecstasy was a fun and different book to read. Charlie is an erotic writer who has a hard time find a woman to date who doesn't think he's a pig. He meets Candace at a writer's conference. She's decided to find out if she has what it takes to be an erotic writer. The relationship between the two of them was great. I loved the little lessions he gave her about sex and reading about their stories they were each writing inside the big story of the two of them was fun also. The only thing that seemed strange was when Charlie found out about something Candace did and was upset about it, but then two seconds later he wasn't mad. Other than that, the book was a great read.

Still shaking my head on this one. I've heard some great things about Bella Andre and I started with Ecstasy because it was a free read. I'm glad I did. I thought the writing was elementary at best with little character development, cheesy dialogue, and unrealistic/unbelievable plotting. I read quite a bit of erotic romance. This was neither erotic nor romantic. The language used was crass, not sexy. The character's internal dialogue was laughable. Worse yet, anyone who has even a basic understanding of BDSM would be appalled...

SPOILERS...

to have a first sexual encounter with bondage, blindfolds and hot wax after one meeting and no discussion is ridiculous and quite frankly, irresponsible of the author. One minute Charlie's thinking to himself how inexperienced Candy is and how careful he needs to be and the next he's pouring hot wax on her bound body???

To be fair I was pretty checked out after references to her "muff", her breasts being like "lush melons" and when the first sex scene ended with, "Sweetheart, you are definitely an A+ student." gag. Maybe it got better but I didn't have it in me to do more than skim the next two chapters and then give up entirely.

This is the first book I've stopping reading before finishing and will be my first Kindle delete. If you want good erotic romance check out Lorelei James and her "Rough Riders" series, Jayne Rylon, or Lora Leigh's "Bound" series. If you want to read good (and responsible) BDSM stories, I'd highly recommend Cherise Sinclair's Mountain Masters series. Good luck and happy reading.

This was a great book it was fast paced with character development and a real plot. you don't often find that in erotica. I do think this book should have been labeled a little better because it is romantic erotica not just contemporary romance. I think that might have helped in the reviews. if your not looking for lots of sexy scenes and in graphic detail you might want to skip this one but if that is what your looking for it is one of the better reads.

I got this book because it was free.. I dont usually read erotica or even romantica.. This is my first Bella Andre book but Ill be looking into more..

I really liked Candy and Charlie. I thought it was very cute in the beginning how they both had experiences with peoples misguided notions about their profession.. You could tell he was more the physical type in his writing and she was more emotional (hello- shes a woman) From the very beginning I thought that after the HEA they could write as a team and have it all.. But Im getting ahead of myself.. I liked how they met- that was cute. I liked how much thought he put into the lessons.. I thought he was the more emotional person and there was a couple times I wanted to scream at Candy.. I like how Candy had some experience but wasnt wrote to be promiscuous and as for the other reviewers who object to tmi about Charlies past, all I can say is they must have been reading too much into or something because it was literally one sentence and it didnt come right out and say he had a lot of threesomes(although the part about when he lost his virginity was a head-scratcher) but I wasnt offended or anything about his past.. But what I didnt like was the fact that I was more interested in the story Candy was writing to enter the contest than their actual story.. I had to catch myself numerous times from skimming through until the next entry of her story.. Also I didnt like how their conflict was building up for half of the story and then when it came out it was a dud.. I was expecting more.. More emotion, more anger, more fireworks, just more.. It ended up fizzling.. I was very disappointed in that..
All in all this was a pretty good book.

This is really, really bad. I can only guess that Bella Andre wrote this at the very beginning of her career. There is precious little character development, then, Boom! the main characters are having sex. The prose does not flow smoothly, the interactions between the hero and heroine seem awkward, their personalities and motivations are not consistent, and one is not given enough physical description to "see" them. This creates a vacuum, so that the explicit scenes are strangely unerotic.

Every so often I download a batch of free ebooks from Amazon and trawl through them looking for some good writing. Normally I dismiss them after just a few sentences.

This one surprised me because it was literate and fluent. I read it very fast and I was quite entertained. I did a little research on the author and it turns out she is doing very well. This ebook will now cost you a dollar or two, so she is obviously working hard at the marketing.

The book was more or less error-free but the prose is a little loose. For example:

[Begin quote]

His enjoyment, he thought ruefully, may have sprung from his intense desire to see Candace wrapped in the silks, velvets and satins he purchased.

Or, more to the point, his even more intense desire to unwrap her.

He tried to shake the image of Candace naked with her legs spread wide open before him, begging for him to ram his cock inside her. He needed to focus on the task at hand.

[End quote]

Yeah, shake that image, Charlie boy!

This is a romance in which the man and the woman are both writers of soft porn. Now, when I read a novel I want to escape from the mundane real world that is my daily grind! This is just a small niggle. The characters are not very interesting or credible, even though Ms. Andre is clearly writing about what she knows, but she is clearly a capable author who is raising the standard for self-published romance novels. This is better than some Harlequin novels I've read anyway, although that's not saying very much.
