About the Author

Phoebe Alexander has been writing since she was a young girl. Unable to decide if she could hack it in the cut-throat literary world when she was younger, she opted to climb the Ivory Tower instead. Now, she's looking down from that tower at the literary world wondering if there is a place for her voice. She lives in the Washington DC area with her kids and pets (although sometimes she has trouble distinguishing one from the other.) She has blogged for over four years on an adult site about sex and relationships and has learned that readers are just as titillated by wild tales of emotional roller coaster rides as they are by the most sensual erotica. In her new novel, Mountains Wanted, she attempts to weave both together.

As a long standing member of the polyamorous lifestyle I can tell you just how true to life this book is. A refreshing and honest read for anyone wanting a peek into this lifestyle.

I've had the honor of meeting the author at our house parties near the beaches, she's a sweet and fun lady, happy with life. She covers the different situations found in house parties and the club scenes. How the alternative lifestyle fit in with hearth and home.

A very well written story from the heart! Looking forward to more from Phobe.

First of all, I'm a huge reader, I inhale everything I read, I crawl into the characters and have empathy for them, an truly let myself believe this is real (for the time of the story)

I almost put the book down several times, I had a bad premonition about how this might end, and that it would upset me.

The characters we under developed, but ironically I thought the writer had the skills. But, I never connected to anyone but Sarah, and on so may occasions I would hear myself saying NO!! Wrong choice...and I was right.

It was cruel, disappointing, and sad....

I rarely give negative reviews, only when I'm upset, and feel I invested so much time to lie awake wondering why this and why that( I don't want to give the story it away)

Obviously TO MY SURPRISE many people enjoyed this?!?

I love this book!!!

I am polyamorous and Mountains Wanted touches on the subject in an approachable manner. Not quite blatant but the circumstances are believable because I have found myself in many of the situations that arise throughout. I also found myself identifying with the main character - although I am male. But, I don't want to reveal any spoilers here.

The descriptive writing makes me feel I am a fly on the wall soaking in the scenery and getting me just as charged as the male characters with whom our protagonist (Sarah) relates. STEAMY!!! But, it's not just about the sex. It's about real-world situations that come up in both polyamorous as well as monogamous relationships. As heavy as the subject matter can be, Phoebe is able to lighten the mood with her narrative and Sarah's self talk.

This book is something I would love my potential partners to read as well as friends who may not understand my love style. Informative without being preachy. But addresses many sticking points of love in orthodox and alternative relationships.

I can't wait to read more from Phoebe Alexander. When's the follow up due?

As someone who has some firsthand experience with the swapping and swinger lifestyle (not too much in the polyamorous) this is the most accurate portrayal of what it is like from the inside.

Sarah is a very strong lead character and Phoebe Alexander really has you climb inside her head as she searches for fulfillment on several fronts.

The writing style in the erotic scenes are really what sets this apart from other novels in the same vein. P. Alexander builds beautiful literary structures with negative space for your imagination to fill them in. This is really the only way to make indescribably sexy events and sensations actually describable.

I highly recommend this book, and I'm looking forward to diving into the rest of the series.

I loved the first book of this series.This is a well written story. Sarah Lynde is a character that I respect as a single mother with two kids juggling her career with not one, but two men. I love how Phoebe gave Sarah the ability to balance all this. I think Sarah is an inspiration to all the single working mothers out there who are looking for love when they admit they're not looking. She proves this challenge is not impossible.

If you loved 50 Shades and Twilight but still want something a bit more mature, cerebral but just as engaging get this book. I can't wait for the next book. I'm so thrilled to be reading her first published book and proud to say it's a great read. I'm a voracious reader of romance and erotica. I regularly read several books in a week. I would recommend this to anyone else who has similar tastes in reading material. Her writing will stimulate your brain as well as your body.

This book started out a little slow - I thought, but it was necessary to sink the reader to the depths of relationships in this story. I never say this about a book, but it made me cry more than once. The feelings were so deep and raw, the sex was so hot and real. After finishing it I couldn't wait to get the sequel, Mountains Climbed, fast enough. I love hot romances and great stories. This is like none other I've ever read. Soul wrenching, and yet the characters were all so unique and flawed. Their love so deep and pained. This is a book you'll think about long after you've finished reading it.

If you want a great erotic tale with an excellent plot, then look no further than this series. The setting and characters are nicely fleshed out, and very visual. I won't lie, if you don't get a few tingles, then there is something wrong with you ;-)
I loved Sarah. I loved her spunk, her wit, and let's be honest, her sexual nature.
Most of the time, I had the urge to smack James for just being dense...but he improved after a while, and I am looking forward to their further story in the second of this trilogy!
