Brushing Flesh, the first story in this erotic collection of five shorts, is a story of detective Claire trying to figure out who stole some valuable erotic paintings. This story is okay, it didn’t stand out but wasn’t bad either. The one thing that bothered me about this story was that it is written in third person present tense. For some reason I found it a little difficult to really get into it, being used to reading mostly in the past tense. I’m used to reading stories as if someone’s telling you a story versus telling you the story as they act it out, which is what it felt like reading this story. On the other hand, another reader might read this story with ease.


The other stories are good if you’re into vampires, mermaids and orgies. However, Starring Tonight by Kitti Bernetti was an amazing read and I never considered myself a Marilyn Monroe fan. Despite the ending of Brushing Flesh which was kind of predictable, Starring Tonight leaves you unsure of what’s really going on until the very end.
This collection is a group of stories with varied themes that has something for everyone. However, with my tastes in erotica, I found it difficult to enjoy all of the stories as I had hoped I would. Because of Starring Tonight I give Brushing Flesh as a whole 3 stars.

Rating: 3 Stars

"Come to us Rena. We've been waiting for you."



Rena has heard the whispers in her nightmares for years, ever since the night her mother disappeared. She hopes studying at Vindecare, a school for witches, will finally stop the voices and help her to control her abilities. At last she has a chance at a new life--and maybe a relationship with Kaydin, the undeniably sexy gallery owner helping Rena with her art.


But Kaydin has dark secrets of his own, intimately connected to Rena's nightmares. The shapeshifter saved the young witch's life once, a mistake he's bound to correct. Even if Rena makes him long with desire he hasn't felt for centuries....

Two men on trajectory for an explosive collision…




Still mourning the loss of his lover to invading forces, Marr Hingo operates his farm under a dictatorship while keeping his mind—and feet—planted firmly on the ground. Spring arrives right on schedule, bringing with it something completely unexpected—an unconscious pilot from a downed star jet. Unable to bring himself to give up the handsome aviator to searching troops, Marr hides him in the barn’s cellar.

The last thing Davan Siedel remembers before ejecting is getting in a couple of good blasts against a Galactic Forces F150. He wakes to find his vague memory of being carried by an angel wasn’t far off the mark. A tall, dark-haired, dark-eyed farmer has brought him to safety and is tending his injured leg.


The attraction between solid, earthy Marr and clever, quicksilver Davan catches them off guard—and their sexual union is as sweet as it is powerful. Yet the longer Davan lingers, the tighter the enemy’s web grows, threatening their love, their freedom…and their lives.

Warning: Contains hot male/male loving, sweet sexual healing, a down-to-earth farmer who knows how to wield a…plow, a smart-mouthed pilot with fast…jets.

A family legend could lead to a treasure more precious than pearls…or get them killed.

Between babysitting her very pregnant sister-in-law and fending off her mother’s nagging about her marital status, Blair Moreau is going insane. Her only hold on sanity is her daily walk for a guilty peek at her crush, the sexy neighbor who’s fixing up the old Cotesworth place.

Conn Lucas, the bastard son of Culford’s leading family, got way out of town a long time ago. When the only relative who didn’t despise him leaves him her 250-year-old house, Conn plans to refurbish it, flip it, and get back to Connecticut as soon as possible. Until a local beauty with a rare talent for DIY gives him a hand with some stubborn siding.


When he makes her mad enough to swing a two-by-four at his head, he realizes Blair is better than perfect. Especially when his efforts to keep her from killing him explode into an erotic rush of adrenaline that unleashes desires they’ve both kept hidden.

Breaking through Conn’s tough shell isn’t as difficult Blair’s next hurdle—telling him she’s a werewolf. First, though, they’ve got to deal with meddling ghosts and a bad ol’ boy cousin who isn’t above taking what he wants at nail-gun point…


Warning: This book contains a smokin’ hot werewolf chick with serious DIY know-how and a man who thinks that’s sexy; illegal use of nail guns; things to do in a claw-foot tub; pirate references; piddling Dobermans and meddling ghosts. Which is better than meddling Dobermans and piddling ghosts.
