    Very short but really good

    This ebook is only about 31 pages, and in those pages is a very steamy, very well written story.

    This is my favorite kind of romance, two people who have been friends and have fallen in love. The writer does a good job of packing in the sense of them knowing each other, being good friends, and wanting more from each other. The reader basically comes into the story at a point when it all comes to ahead.

    There are a few typos in the e-version, but for me they did not detract from the story. Be warned this is an erotic book in that it is more than steamy, it's very graphic in language and description. If that offends, you may want to pass on this one.

    As for me, I'm going to see if I can find something else this author has written.

    Sex scene looking for a book

    This reads like it should have been the big sex scene mid-book. Only problem is, there is no book. And the sex is in wrong order, so smacks of an encounter with a paid hooker. Baaaad!

    Erotic, but not entirely original

    Desire in the Dark is a fun, erotic story. It's fun to read, and pretty well written. The basic plot line is not unheard of, basically two long-time friends who have secrelty loved each other for a while, and eventually hook up.

    The story is erotic, and not for the younger crowd, or the easily offended. But if you like erotic stories, this is a good read. THe characters are beleivable, and the dialog is natural. Based on the opening of the story, I was expecting a bit more from the main female character, but her actions weren't entirely unusual.

    Essential, Desire in the Dark is a good read, but if a few scenes had played out a little more naturally it would have been better. Expect a few typos, and out of place or missing words here and there as you're reading, so if that bothers you be mindful of that.

    Crass and short

    There really is no story line for this short story. They have a brief non-sex scene, in which they talk about having sex. Then, the lights go off, and they can't go anywhere. Why? I don't know, most cars do have headlights. Really a lousy reason for two people to get involved. I could not count how many times the author used the f-word. Not at all impressed. No romance, just porn.

    Hot!!

    For the people who are giving bad reviews, realize these are short, erotic tales that are written to be a quick read. I enjoyed this story very much. Nothing wrong with a little fantasy.

    Good Short Read

    I really like this short read. I read it while waiting at the airport. I like the idea of the 'Naughty Nooners'. If you want something to read at lunch or on break and can't get into a whole book these are great. It's just a short story to read for pleasure. Everyone keeps giving it bad reviews for the 'short' story plot. I don't get it, that's all it is a short story for you to see if you like the author. Definity will try a book by Naima Simone.

    To reviewer #3

    Just because you think sex for children is okay doesn't make it so. A persons brain isn't fully developed until their early twenties, so they cannot predict all of the consequences of their actions. Having sex is something that should only occur between adults and even then they should get to know each other before jumping into bed together. More babies have been aborted than all the people that have been killed during all of the wars that America has been involved in. A whole generation dead because of people not taking responsibility for their actions. Not to mention all of the STDs that are killing people, and YOU think teenagers should be having sex? You are either an idiot or 16 years old yourself. If you are a teen you proved I am right by your misinformed comment.
