Lolita Crossed with Holly Golightly

Lolita Has Nothing on Bella Amazon 5***** Review While I am am not an avid reader of erotica, I have yet to find an erotic writer anywhere near as good as Chloe Thurlow. Most erotic literature is smarmy, breathless sentimentality, overlaid with unrealistic notions of sexuality. This is not the case with The Secret Life of Girls! I am a reader of good literature, the kind with deep complex meaning, great

Love Bends and Curves Like Space and Time

Years ago, when I was working in a second-hand book shop, a woman came in seeking a novel. Title? Publisher? Author? She couldn’t remember. ‘It’s all about a man and a woman. They fall in love!’ she announced, indignantly, when I professed bewilderment. I was about to suggest that we began with the Troubadors and proceeded to Anais Nin by way of D.H Lawrence, but by then she’d stomped out,

Intelligent Erotica in Coming of Age Masterpiece

First let me say that Katie In Love is romantic erotica at its best. It is intelligent erotica. The sexual passages are the best I’ve ever read. Thurlow’s writing style is unique and very visual. The sexual scenes will play like movies in your imagination. And the best part is that you can play either part. You can be either Katie or Tom. Their pleasures are presented equally. They will

Skilled Literary Temptress of Arousing Proportions

Katie in Love  Review by Vanessa Gonzales Female sexuality is an aspect of human development that’s been misunderstood for centuries. Fortunately, there is a growing awareness that empowering women to embrace their sexuality empowers men as well, and the benefits are widespread, especially in the bedroom. Thurlow’s stellar sixth novel, Katie in Love, intuitively embodies this line of thinking. Her characters have depth of desire, making them easily relatable. But

Songbird – Noir With An Erotic Twist

Songbird – by Rachel de Vine In classic film noir, the gritty opening scenes find colour when the screen is graced by the femme fatale, a striking, flawed woman who psychologically challenges the status quo represented by a dominant, usually charismatic male. This movie trope was borrowed from pulp fiction writers – Dashiell Hammett, Elmore Leonard, Raymond Chandler, and has been taken back by writers in various forms such as

Rare Artist of Our Time

A well-written tale that’ll stay with you long after you read it Rebekkah Ford on Girl Trade I had no idea what to expect when I picked up this book. The first chapter gripped me in a whirlwind of feelings: interest, suspense, disgust, and anger. I have zero tolerance for someone forcing their will on others unless the other party gives her permission to do so. However, the main character in

Raising the Bar on Erotic Romance

Katie in Love Review by Brian Moorhead Katie in love is a magnificently decadent romantic tale written by a truly gifted author named Chloe Thurlow. She is once again significantly raising the bar on the quality of erotic romance and a reading of this latest novel will erase any possible doubts you may have about her immense storytelling skills. When we first meet the main protagonist, Katie, she comes across

Chloe Thurlow Does Not Blink

Katie in Love – review by Terrance Aldon Shaw It is the clothes that cover us that stir desire for what lies beneath . . . A girl in primitive times was the victim of male lust and the guile required to survive and flourish is the mask she subconsciously wears today. Love is war, and clothes are our armour . . . Being naked for a woman isn’t the

Katie in Love – review by Paul Green

Years ago, when I was working in a second-hand book shop, a woman came in seeking a novel. Title? Publisher? Author? She couldn’t remember. ‘It’s all about a man and a woman.

Katie in Love – review by India Reid

Opening up Chloe Thurlow’s Katie in Love is a lot like slipping into the perfect bath after a long, hard day. It’s the perfect temperature, warm enough to make you sweat. The water is the most gorgeous shade of lavender– no, not lavender, but instead Katie’s signature pink. There are rose petals floating in the water, candles lit all around; the air is deliciously humid, floral with hints of something

Review: Lionel Asbo: State of England

Lionel Asbo: State of England by Martin Amis My rating: 2 of 5 stars Knowing how to write and knowing how to write is not the same thing. Martin writes well. Always. But has run out of ideas as to what to write about. The Pregnant Widow took us back to his youth in the seventies and we entered a seen-it-all-through-a-glass-darkly yarn about a young man obsessed with big tits

Review: The Lotus, Book Two, Cult of Beauty Series

The Lotus, Book Two, Cult of Beauty Series by K.M. Dylan My rating: 5 of 5 stars When Hemingway wrote about the bullfights in Andalucía, you could taste the grit and dust, feel the heat and chill of the sol y sombra, sense the coppery tang of blood as the matador elegantly performed the coup de grâce. It is called authenticity. Hemingway went. He saw. He felt. He knew. He

Review: Borealis

Borealis by Ellie Bay My rating: 5 of 5 stars We all nurture the fantasy of a spaceship swooping down and taking us off to another planet where they do things differently – where the light is golden and people believe in love in all its quintessential possibilities. This is the vision Ellie Bay brings us in Borealis, where Claire, as she is duly named, awakes naked and bound in

Review: The Old Star

The Old Star by Elodie Parkes My rating: 5 of 5 stars My last dip into the elliptical mind of Elodie Parkes engaged me with the small town romance ‘The Winter Girl’ and I felt a shimmy of nostalgia when I opened ‘The Old Star’ and found myself in the claustrophobic heart of my native England. We find ourselves beneath grey skies with sassy Cathy Faraday as she loses herself

Review: Runaway Nun

Runaway Nun by Caesar Voghan My rating: 5 of 5 stars If you melt Salvador Dali, de Chirico and a 1940s saucy postcard in one bubbling cauldron you have both the cover of Caesar Voghan’s dark novel and an indication of the surreal journey on which you are about to embark. In Runaway Nun, with a parenthesized (Misbegotten), we enter a post-apocalyptic time not dissimilar to the Middle Ages where

Review: The Luck of the Weissensteiners

The Luck of the Weissensteiners by Christoph Fischer My rating: 5 of 5 stars Milan Kundera opened his novel `The Unbearable Lightness of Being’ describing the street where he grew up and how the name kept changing depending on the political heterodoxy of the time. In `The Luck of The Weissensteiners,’ also set in Czechoslovakia, in Bratislava, we are introduced immediately to Greta Weissensteiner and learn that she is likewise

Review: Electronic Gags

Electronic Gags by Kudakwashe Muzira My rating: 5 of 5 stars The world is in crisis – banks, unemployment, poverty, drones, spy satellites, greedy corporations, democracy sinking beneath a flood tide of corruption, dishonesty neglect and incompetence. It’s hardly surprising that the dystopia concept appears in so many new novels. Thus it is with “Electronic Gags” by Kudakwashe Muzira, who sets his novel in the present dystopia where people are

Review: The Voyeur

The Voyeur by Kay Jaybee My rating: 5 of 5 stars Mark Parker drinks strong black coffee and keeps notes in a small battered notebook. He is a man with ample self-restraint – but that restraint is wearing thin. Summoning his assistants, Anya and Clara, he instructs them to ready themselves for a night at `Discreet,’ the most exclusive BDSM club in a city famed for its BDSM clubs –
