New Review! Lascivious by Shea Swain, 3.5 Cranky Stars


Reece, a good guy with a sweet chunk of bad boy mixed in, was hot as Hell. But to Lilly, Reece was just Reece. To see him as anything else was silly. He would always be her older brother's annoying best friend. That was until the day Reece had carried her to her bedroom, lost his balance, and his fingers slipped under her loose shorts, and into her panty-less crotch. For Lilly, it had awakened and confirmed her darkest desires. 

She wanted more. 

When Lilly was left in his care, Reece had the best intentions of being a responsible "Big Brother", and he had done a great job. For Reece, the slip up (or was it slip-in?) had changed everything. Over the years Lilly had grown from an innocent 13-year old into an 18-year old wet dream walking. She had already been skating on the edge of his self control, wearing little to nothing around the house. One accidental but red-hot touch…and Reece had to release while conjuring an image of Lilly naked and beneath him. 

How in the hell was he going to resist little Lilly now, when he wanted inside her so badly? 

Come...Taste A Sample!

Lascivious is Shea Swain’s debut novel. Hot and steamy, some scenes are “grab your fire extinguisher, off the charts” hot.

Lilly and Reece are thrown together after Lilly’s parents and her brother pass away when she is thirteen. Lilly’s brother, aware he didn’t have much time, gets Reece to promise he’ll take care of her, always.

Everything is fine until Lilly turns eighteen. She’s legal, gorgeous, has a heart of gold and a body made for sin.

And Reece wants her, even though she is forbidden.

This novella delivers exactly what it sets out to do. It’s erotic to the max and Swain can certainly write panty-melting scenes.

There is a lot going on in this short story and I think it would have either a) benefitted from being a full-length novel or b) some subplots reduced to concentrate on the main storyline.

Told in third person point of view, sometimes it made it difficult to get into the head spaces of Lilly and Reece. Add in some secondary characters, and the fact that this is a novella, I think first person point of view would have bridged this gap.

This is a quick hot read and I look forward to reading more from this author.
