Last Day Amazon Awakening Release Party #Giveaway #Ereader

Today is the last day in the AMAZON AWAKENING release party although we’ll still be celebrating this release for the rest of the month of December.

As you might know from the last few days, AMAZON AWAKENING is my first foray into writing erotic paranormal romance.

Why go sexier? Well, there are some stories that just lend themselves to a sexier story line and I have to admit, I like edgy stories. But I also like romance and seeing the developing relationship so I’ve made it a point in all of the stories that I’ll be doing for Nocturne Cravings to provide that romantic arc.

But I also know that some people don’t like the sexiness. They’d rather close the door on what happens with the couple. I guess that’s one of the reasons why Inspirationals and Young Adult books are so popular. Many readers have told me they look to these for stories that are sweeter.

Today’s question for you is: Do you like sexy or sweet or both? What do you like or not like about stories that are erotic (especially since I have another 3 to write for Nocturne Cravings!)?

Leave you answer below to earn some points on this final day of the release party!

  1. I like both… it just depends on what kind of mood I’m in:) Sometimes in the erotic stories I read the story is centered more around the sex, but I like just a bit more character connection, which would make the sex that much hotter. Ever since my discovery of the adult bookshelf I can’t imagine going back to just YA… don’t get me wrong there are some fantastic YA authors and series out there that I just have to have, but the adult book section gives me that something more that YA just cannot.

    Thanks for the giveaway & CONGRATS Caridad on your upcoming release!!! I’m sure it is going to be amazing!

  2. I like it on the sweeter side of sexy. I can imagine things pretty well, so I don’t need to read the words describing the encounter in so much detail. My FAVE is the sweet first kiss. I write New Adult, so it’s just a shade more intense than Young Adult and that suits me just fine. 🙂

    WRITE ON, my friend!! Super excited for your release. I hope it soars!!

  3. I love sexy and I love sweet. The story and how it’s written is the appeal.

  4. I tend to buy sexier rather than sweet. Whatever works best for you. We are all different so why would our taste in books be the same? Looking forward to reading this. It wasn’t in stores around me yet so I’ll have to broaden my search. Hugs.

  5. I love a good sexy romance novel. I have the most difficult time reading a book in which hand-holdings and kissing are the theme of the day. People don’t behave that way in real life, why portray them that way in fiction. YA don’t just hold hands and kiss, it’s a myth, but I’m not going to try to disillusion anyone…For me, I live vicariously through all the sex scenes of the characters in the hot steamy romances. Keep them coming!

  6. I’m a “close the door” type person. I tend to skip over love scenes to get to the heart of the story. And stories that have the couple “doing it” in the first or second chapter are icky and unrealistic. Hey. I’m married to a Viking. I don’t need instructions!
    However, I do realize that there are some who enjoy a good hot romp in a story. This book will satisfy that need. Oh, yeah.

  7. I like a little of both. I don’t mind the language at all so it doesn’t bother me. Some time you need sexy to get the point across. But I also like sweet books too. But if I were a writer myself I think a alter ego would come out & I would write a good erotic book that would shock some people. Now if you don’t mind me asking, What does your husband say when he reads these naughty bits in the book? Have a good one. —Rachel
