Book Review: Bubbles and Troubles


Today's review is on Bubbles and Troubles by Bebe Balocca

I have actually been reading a lot of books by Balocca, and I have to say that I have thoroughly enjoyed each and every one. I also love that as each new novella comes out her ability as an erotic writer grows. Whereas the first two books did have some X rated action, Bubbles and Troubles is an explosion of sensuality waiting to happen.

Once a busy Chicago Lawyer, Carmen moves to the quite town of Charade where she practices law two days a week, works at a co-op, raises chickens, and teaches belly dancing. Though she hasn't been with a man in five years, she still knows how to pleasure herself. And it's oh so easy with the erotic dreams she's been having, even with the strange grey cat watching her from the window.

Brock is just one of the magical creatures living in the Prescott Woods that surround Carmen's little cottage, and with his magical ability to cast glamours on humans, he poses as a cat to get close to her. Once he's in the house and Carmen is in the throws of an erotic dream, he lets his glamour fade as he is lapping at her juices.

Though Brock is besotted by Carmen it's not the only reason why he wanted to get close to her. Prescott Woods is on the brink of being sold by Calvin Prescott to a development company, and Brock thinks that Carmen could be of great help to stop it from happening and decides to bring her into the woods to meet his father. But when things don't go the way Brock had wanted he changes Carmen's life forever and without her permission.

There is no denying that there are sparks of attraction, looks of wanton desire, and time shattering sex between Carmen and Brock, but is it enough to keep them together even after his betrayal? And can they stop old man Prescott from selling the property and save their home? It's just a 100 page read to find out.

I'm looking forward to the next book by Balocca.

Book Description: via Amazon

In and around a certain small town in eastern Kentucky, things are definitely not what they seem. Charade is home to hippies, belly dancers, hobby chicken farmers, and other refugees from big-city life. Residents of Charade love to play and work in their mellow Appalachian village, where the Summer of Love lasts all year.

Charade natives like having a deep, dark woods next to their town, but they rarely venture into its shadowy nooks and crannies. Prescott Woods is teeming with magical beings who have the ability to disguise their appearance in order to keep mortals away. Elves, gnomes, trolls, tree spirits, and a headstrong family of Fair Folk inhabit the lush swath of mountainous land.

Prescott Manor, the family home of Calvin Prescott, serves as the bridge between the denizens of the wild, magical woods and the mortals of the Charade.

Magic and passion collide in the mountains of eastern Kentucky, where it pays to remember that a long, steamy soak in the Healing Waters and Living Earth will do more than wash your cares away.
