Alinora, Jason & Me, and Black Silk (Adult Reviews)

Alinora by Kara Lockley
Age Warning: I would say age 13 or 14 and up should read Alinora
Published By: Self-Published
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Date Released: September 7, 2009
Provided By: Free E-books on barnesandnoble.com

Synopsis:
Lily had almost everything she ever wanted. Good friends, a nice house, a thriving career. The only thing missing was love. Until she started dreaming of a carefree romance every night. Her dreams were so vivid they made her doubt her sanity. Was too much time at the office forcing her stressed-out mind to create a retreat at night? Or were her dreams somehow... real? 
My Review:
Alinora is a short story full of romance and fantasy. Lily the main character is a workaholic and once she moves into her new house built in the middle of the woods, she starts dreaming. These dreams are vivid, real, and Caleb the man of her dreams, literally, induces her carefree romance that every time she dreams occurs. But problems start as her retreat becomes literal in the real world. And from there Caleb and Lily's romance becomes complicated. Alinora is a great short romance to read, I love the ending and the whole content of the story. Kara does a nice job in the 48 pages and 16 chapters that are written and unlike other short stories builds her characters so that you want more.

Jason & Me by Jenna Anderson
Age Warning: I would say age 14 and up
Published By: Self-Published
Genre: Friendship Romance
Date Released: November 26, 2009
Provided By: Free E-books on barnesandnoble.com (But it's no longer free $0.99)

Synopsis:
Jason’s been my best friend for fourteen years. I never thought I’d kiss him. I never thought he’d leave me. Apparently that hot afternoon was my lucky day, I experienced both. 
My Review:
Jason & Me is a short short story, 15 pages. But you get the content quick and fast. It's an emotional friendship romance, and it's really cute in my mine. Jason at first seems like a butt face, and Meg is just the best friend that's in love with Jason.  And if you want a short cute romance you can read this and get it quick. That's about it, Meg and Jason as characters are built up alright, but need a little more characteristics for my taste.

Black Silk by Jan Gordan
Age Warning: I would say age 16 or 17 and up
Published By: Self-Published
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Date Released: July 16, 2009

Synopsis:
Victoria Hudson is 29 and lives in the kind of small town where everyone knows everyone else. She has two great loves in her life -- her cat, Mister, and reading books from her used bookstore. She doesn't see her life changing much in the future. She's stuck. Until one night when she's saved from probable danger by a mysterious stranger.

Steven Colburn has moved around quite a bit during his lifetime, never really finding a place where he felt he could be 
comfortable. Until he buys an old homestead, and fate steps in to forever change his life and that of one of the town’s quiet entrepreneurs. 
My Review:
Alright Black Silk is a very detailed romance book. I love the characters, and both of them are excellently written. And unlike the other two books reviewed above Black Silk is 125 pages. It's also really original, and  I don't think there's any other books like it out there. Victoria or Vic runs a book store and hasn't be able to find love till now. Steven is the new mysterious guy in town, he's different and after saving Vic at a gas station robbery, starts to know her. You can guess the ending, but not all of this goes the way it's supposed to. But in the end Black Silk is a great paranormal romance with an awesome new paranormal twist.
