Artistically Inclined's First Review

TCM Reviews' Robyn Ashford had this to say about Artistically Inclined:

Forget the candy and the romantic candlelight dinner. Start a new Valentine’s Day tradition.

Is there a better endorsement? *grin*

Yahoo!Group

Thanks to all who joined my Yahoo!Group over the last week! I'm delighted to announce that of the new subscribers "shebab98" was drawn as the winner of a copy of Switch, my Phaze Surge co-written with Will Belegon.

In the coming weeks, I'll be designing my newsletter. Each issue will feature a random drawing from the subscribers for an ebook or other prize. The inaugural issue will coincide with the print release of fine flickering hungers!

I'd like your help in deciding my newsletter's content. Right now, I'm planning to include regular sections entitled News, Reviews, and Interviews ... but I also want to include special sections such as an occasional contest, topics intended to spark discussion in between issues, perhaps a "reader spotlight" and an "author spotlight" ...

I welcome your thoughts & ideas! If you're not already a member, join by clicking HERE.

JERR Reviews Amichu

Title: Erotique 3: Amichu
Authors: Alessia Brio and Will Belegon
Publisher: Phaze
Publisher URL: www.phaze.com
ISBN: 1-59426-605-0
Reviewer: Aggie Tsirikas
Rating: 4 Stars ("engrossing and arousing")
Heat level: S ("simmering")

Bruce and Mandy are on their way to Rapa Nui, off the Chilean coast. They’ve been invited to collect an artifact for Erotique, Mandy's infamous sex toy shop and museum. This prized possession is from the benefactor Professor Eduardo Rojas Aguilar, a man from Mandy’s past.

Amichu is part of the Phaze Samba Short series of stories, and book three of the Erotique series, by writing duo Ms. Brio and Mr. Belegon. Mandy and Bruce are an insatiable couple and makes for some steamy encounters that only become more heated as they discover the artifact they’ve come to collect. The reader is given some interesting facts, not only about the central couple’s relationship, but also about the place they visit. I was able to appreciate the island with the information woven into the story. Both Mandy and Bruce seem like a very down to earth and sensual couple who thoroughly enjoy an active sex life. The sex does get heated and we’re gifted with an interesting opening scene that sets the tone for this story.

There are some interesting plot twists, and even an incident that will have you pausing in surprise. You don’t necessarily need to read any of the previous books in this series to enjoy this story, though I would recommend it to gain a fuller picture of Mandy and Bruce’s adventures before reaching this segment of their lives. The only thing that threw me out of the story a few times was Bruce’s turn of phrase; I didn’t expect this lawyer to speak like a surfer. Mandy and Bruce have an easy light banter that makes Amichu such an enjoyable story to read. With the added elements of adventure, and a little suspense, this makes for a wonderful afternoon read.

Amichu's First Review!

Natasha Brooks at Bare Back Magazine gave Amichu 4.5 of 5 stars! Here's part of her review:

The writing duo Alessia Brio and Will Belegon are at it again with the third edition to the series started originally by Alessia.

This ebook is entitled Amichu. This story is filled with much more action and adventure than you can ever imagine. I sat in amazement after reading the enormous amount of creativity that was put into this ebook.

The story picks up where it ended in the previous installment, and starts off on a humorous tone, but then soon introduced an action packed plot and adventure for Amanda and Bruce as they head to South America to uncover the truth about an Incan artifact that was generously donated to Erotique, (Amanda's sex toy shop
and museum) by a lover of Amanda's late aunt.

One thing that I enjoyed about this ebook was that it was well written by the writing duo, and I could clearly and vividly visualize the story as I read it. There was some technical archaeological terminology in the dialog of the story that made the story a bit of a challenge but it fits the story very well.

In terms of the sexual heat of the story, it was well balance, considering how well the story was written.

One thing that I admire about the story is that the relationship and love between Amanda and Bruce seems realistic and is displayed in the skillful use of dialog between the two characters.

The story was outstanding.
