Closed Set by Julia Harlow

Cassandra Carlson is working on her five-year plan. A professional dancer, she moved to Los Angeles after college to work at her best friend’s Hollywood dance studio. She decides she can put up with the glitterati for the time being until she saves enough to open her own studio back home in Cincinnati.

When soon-to-be A-list British actor, Christopher Edwards, comes to her for dance lessons for his new film, the attraction is instantaneous and intense. Both are young, available and beautiful, but while she finds Hollywood garish and superficial, he’s on the brink of realizing his life’s ambition with no inclination for a serious relationship. Or so he thinks.

Just when their white-hot desire can no longer be denied, a jealous actress targets Cassandra in an insidious scheme, and a powerful studio head poses a formidable threat to them both. Cassandra puts herself in jeopardy in order to protect Christopher, but will she lose him in the process?


Closed Set was a little different then what I was expecting. I was thinking more along the lines of a sweet romance; dance teacher meets and falls in love with up and coming big time actor. However what I got was something a little different.

When I started the story it was ended in the direction of a sweet romance. Then things slowly start to heat up pretty quickly. Cassandra, our virgin dance teacher, seemed to really rush to the sex with Chris. She came across in some of the scenes as more experienced then she should have been.

Chris seemed nice enough, and then does wrong by Cassie not once, twice but three times. He clearly had some issues. Why she should stay with him is beyond me. But they did get a sort of happy ever after so that was nice.

The Core – the new series of short, erotic stories by Nola Sarina & Emily Faith – is secretly more than a rave-style nightclub. Everyone’s there to connect… In every way they want.

But you can’t get in without an invite.

Recently-single, coffee-slinging good girl Andee has never been bold enough to party. She’s certainly never been to a place like The Core before. With music pounding, go-go dancers grinding, and vodka shooting, Andee lets Alice, The Core’s charismatic matchmaker, introduce her to some new friends. She’s never been much for one-night-stands, but Alice’s friends – and The Core’s irresistible, sensual atmosphere – light Andee’s hidden passions on fire.

Shaun, a motorcycle stunt performer with the most panty-drenching moves on the dance floor, leads Andee to the glowing, black-lit corner beneath the DJ booth. He sweeps her away with his rhythm and kisses, and under the scorching hot glares of all the other dancing patrons in the heart of The Core, they do far more than dance.

And he’s only one of Andee’s new friends.

“That blue mascara was the best fucking thing I’ve ever brought”

That right there is the start and the end of this story. It all starts with Andee buying some blue mascara because she is bored with her life. The enter Alice who take her to a rave party where everyone is there for themselves and to find someone else with a common interest. It was pretty to easy to guess where it was going to go from there.

Just not for me. Don’t know if I’ll read the rest or not.


{Review} The Snooty School Girl (The Pleasures of the Professor #1)

This is the first short story in “The Pleasures Of The Professor Series” involving Logan the snooty college school girl and her literature professor Rick. After years of lusting over her professor, Logan finally has the courage to show Mr. Striking how she really feels. Her senses are peaking and her cooch is pulsing. She wants his hot tight ass and devouring eyes to be hers once and for all.

Rick has worked hard to reach his position of professor. He is quiet, overworked and an upstanding citizen; a shining example and the most successful in his field. Rick is all that and more.

He truly believes that behind every good man is a good woman. A woman who can harness the power that lies within him. A woman who has power over his body and soul. A woman who has a magical touch that transports him from his serious everyday life, makes his breath hitch and stimulates his senses.

Logan has stroked his flame of desire and has done things that no-one else has done. She has a way of making him feel free from the world of academic tedium he lives in. She is sexy, spontaneous, sensual and his Logan Sapphire. She has the hue, saturation and the tone of the most exquisite gem.

Rick would sacrifice anything for Logan as she is the one person who can entice him to forget the real world and the expectations that weigh heavily on him. He feels understood by her and she penetrates deep within his mind. She is his sanctuary.

Ever since Emily’s boyfriend broke up with her, she’s had a hard time concentrating on ballet. Her coach and man of the house has had enough of her absentmindedness.

He’s going to give her something else to think about. Will she be able to get past how forbidden he is and enjoy the ride?

NB: Author’s warning for book “This Book contains pseudo incest, adult situations, explicit sex scenes and strong language. This book is intended for mature audiences only. All sexually active persons are 18 or older.”


The only problem with these stories is that they are too short. I’m just getting into it and then it is over. Not that there is anything wrong with a short story.

Emily is trying to overcome her break up with her boyfriend Ryan, however it is starting to effect her dancing now. Her step father is becoming annoyed at her and threatens to quite teaching her, unless she can get her mind in the game.

I will never look at a ballet bar the same after reading this. You will just have to read it for yourself to know what I’m talking about.
