    Beth hasn't had to much luck in the love department and come to think of it neither has Yuri. They both turn to a online dating website where they start chatting it up in hoping to have some luck thrown their way. Now this site is unique and matches up couples from different counties, which I thought was pretty cool. Finally after chatting online for months, Beth decides to invite Yuri to New York for a weekend where things start to become hot and heavy. But what will happen when Yuri's stay comes to an end? To be honest I am not a big fan of Novellas. They are to short for me to get involved with the characters and have that bond with them but in this one I took to Beth. I wanted her to find her missing piece of the puzzle. So I was team Yuri! LOL. On the plus side it had lots of steamy scenes that had me saying OMG!!! I wish it could have been a full length novel.I did want to see more development between Beth and Yuri. It wasn't enough for me. The chemistry was kind of lacking outside the sexy bedroom scenes which was a disappointment but I understand novellas move fast because they are short and you cant always get what you want out of them. I also wanted more outside the bedroom scenes. I mean don't get me wrong I loved those parts but I am used to the build up and tension and this just missed it by a few inches.It started off slow but when it picked up I became involved in the story that was beginning to unfold. I loved how they fell in love online. I mean it is possible and it was interesting to see how online dating was explored. That was a huge plus.It had a lot of HOT scenes but I like I said before I just needed a little more chemistry and tension for my liking. Overall it was a dependable read that will have you looking into the nearest dating site, well if your single that is. If you like it hot you will for sure get heated with this read. Happy Reading!

    A really simple and short story. A girl meets a Russian guy on a dating website called "A Foreign Affair". They chat for over 6 months until she decided she wants to meet him in person. He travels to New York City and that's when the erotica comes in... I have to say, on the erotica scale, this was pretty tame. FYI - As of writing this review, the ebook is free on amazon if you have a prime account.

    Decedent Dreams left me a bit up in the air. It’s fairly short and so I think my main concern with this one was that everything felt incredibly rushed. For example, the novella opens with the backstory that Beth and Yuri have been talking online through a dating site for six months. For the characters, that works. For the reader it doesn’t. It left me with no connection to them. I wanted to believe their feelings but being thrown into the middle left me out in the cold.Beth invites Yuri to New York City for a weekend getaway. Within literally minutes of Beth arriving, they are tearing each others clothes off. I mean, it felt weird. Since I had no connection to them Beth might as well have jumped on a random guy in an alley. Yuri was definitely sexy, so I can’t totally blame her but……Beth is a self proclaimed work-a-holic. She spends the first several chapters constantly worried over the running of her bakery while she is away. She hmmms and hawwws about her assistant manager in training and her inability to properly run the place in Beths absence. So when she leaves for her vacation, her current assistant manager is left to deal with the new girl. All this set up but after Yuri comes into the picture, Beth doesn’t check on the bakery again. In fact she ends up planning a 10 day trip to Russia to see Yuri after he goes back. I can understand she is in love, but for someone who spent the beginning chapters fussing over her job, she seemed overly easy to convince to take another vacation so soon after.My last complaint was towards the end when they start talking marriage. The dating site, A Foreign Affair, actually had a “mail order groom/bride” program. Whaaa? Um okay. I mean it makes the situation easier for the characters but I just kept thinking…couldn’t we have gone a normal route? Beth wanted to get Yuri to the US but the process for immigration takes a long time. Why not just mail order him and the sites amazing lawyers can speed the process up to only a few months. Yes, it works. But the idea of actually ordering a husband (or wife for that matter) kinda feels…icky. I’m sure people do it. And I can’t explain it…it just felt odd to me.I loved Yuri. By that I mean, I loved his body. I wanted to hear his accent. I’m a total accent whore. The sex scenes painted him in a very nice light. Ty can write some good smex. I did think Yuri seemed to not give much thought to leaving his family and moving in with Beth. We aren’t talking moving to another city or even a state…this is another country…across the world.While I did have some issues with this one, I think they mainly centered around my lack of connection. Decadent Dreams was a solid contemporary that just needed to be longer. I enjoyed Ty’s writing voice and over looking my concerns, I wanted more. I wished this one was longer. I wanted more time to get to know the characters, their personal stories and what made them a great couple together. Great sex doesn’t necessarily equal a great relationship and that was where I had my issues. Concerns aside, there were no slow parts and it kept me reading till the end.I give Decadent Dreams by Ty Langston 3 stars!

    Beth has been chatting on line with Yuri for 6 months. They met through the dating site "A Foreign Affair". Beth has enjoyed chatting with Yuri and she likes him a lot. She is finally ready to meet him in person and possibly take their online friendship further. Yuri is currently unemployed. The club that he managed burned to the ground and he is currently looking for work. When Beth offers to pay for him to fly and stay in New York, he is hesitant. As much as he wants to see Beth, he doesn't want her footing the bill. Both of them are anxious about how they will react to each other once they are face-to-face. Will the chemistry they have online translate when they are physically together?I liked the concept of a Yuri and Beth starting an online relationship. Online dating is very prevalent in today's society so it was believable that Yuri and Beth met in that fashion. When Yuri and Beth first meet in person, they are both anxious about how to act. Yuri is as good looking as he is online and vice versa. There's the awkward dialog, neither one not knowing how to proceed and then Bam. They have sex. The build up to the sexing party has been going on for six months for Yuri and Beth. But for the reader, it's only been 40 pages. I wanted to see more build-up between the characters. Yes, we are supposed to believe that the chemistry between them is already there but I didn't feel it. Because this is an erotic novella, the sex is explained in detail but not too graphic. Some of the sex scenes were not long enough for my taste. Since I had a hard time buying Yuri and Beth's attraction, I wanted more evidence of their attraction and sexual chemistry.I found it difficult for me to become invested in Yuri and Beth's relationship. While he's visiting her in New York, he's also dealing with problems back home. His best friend's mother is battling cancer and Yuri is concerned. There's a bit of plot and dialog that is dedicated to Yuri talking to his friend Nick about his mom. I wasn't expecting this since this is an erotic novella. I didn't really like that dash of sadness and real world problems mixed in with the sex.Decadent Dreams has a lot of potential. I liked the concept of an online relationship becoming more in the real world. But when I finished reading Decadent Dreams, I was a little disappointed. I couldn't connect with the characters and found their sexual chemistry lacking. It also bothered me that there was talk and plans, of getting married, making things permanent. That threw me off considering this is an erotic and not a contemporary romance. Most erotic novellas I've read, there is no talk of real world stuff. I think more time should have been spent on developing the sexual chemistry and less focus on the real world issues and the potential HEA.

    I really enjoyed this story, and I'm looking forward to reading more from this author.Beth is a bakery / cafe owner who's looking for more out of her relationships. Her ex boyfriend broke up with her six months ago, claiming she didn't spend enough time with him. After hearing from a customer that he was engaged, Beth decides to take a new approach to dating.Beth tries a new dating website called "A Foreign Affair", she meets Yuri and they immediately hit it off. After corresponding by email, web cam, and phone calls for over six months, Beth takes a chance and ask Yuri to visit her in New York.Yuri is hesitant to accept Beth's offer at first, but it doesn't take him long to agree, and they plan to meet up. The attraction is instant, and sizzling. They both realize that they are in love, and clueless about what each of them should do.Yuri has obligations at home, that he can't just walk away from. His best friend and roommate Nicky is going through the heartbreaking tragedy of losing his mother to cancer, and Yuri's parents are home waiting for him as well. He doesn't have a job at the moment because the night club he was managing burnt down.How can Beth and Yuri get past all the obstacles of their lives and be together?This book had my attention from the moment I started reading it. The characters were well developed, and perfectly believable. I always love a strong heroine, and Beth is exactly that. She goes after what she wants no matter the cost, and that's respectable. Yuri is so hot, and exactly the right type for her personality. They didn't dodge around their feelings they came right out and expressed them.The sex scenes in this novella were so hot I thought they would melt my kindle buttons off. They were very revealing without taking away from the story. The author did a very good job of creating a sizzling love story, that left you satisfied when you finished reading it. I would definitely like to read more about Beth, and Yuri. I am also intrigued with the secondary characters, I would love to find out how Nicky copes with all he's dealing with, and if he finds someone of his own.I will definitely be keeping a eye out for Ms. Langston's future novels.****4STARS

    Decadent Dreams was an amazingly HOT!!!! read. I could totally relate to Beth and Yuri. I myself met my husband on-line and he was from a different country than me. I could completely understand how Beth and Yuri had such intense feelings for each other, in what appears to be, a short amount of time. Not only did I love the relationship between Beth and Yuri but I also loved Yuri's relationship to his best friend Nik. There is such loyalty and love between them, like you would see in any other best friend relationship. The chemistry between Beth and Yuri is undeniable. They have so much in common and their lives sort of intertwined when you find out Beth's brother interviewed for a job at Nik's company a few years back or when Beth and Yuri were both in Paris but never met. They say everything happens for a reason and this book makes that saying so true. Yuri may have mistakenly messaged Beth in the begging on the website A Foreign Affair but, if that had not happened, Yuri and Beth would not be about to enter into the next phase of their life together. Therefore it was meant to be. Too many times in life people are afraid to throw caution to the wind and embrace new experiences. Ty seems to know just how to make a story and relationships seem authentic and not contrived. It takes a real skill to do that and I think Ty captured it perfectly. On a scale of 1-10 I give Decadent Dreams a 20. I know, I know it is off my scale (and I have given a few books this rating) but if I didn't know any better it could almost be my life Ty was writing about and that is truly a unique experience Books don't get any better than that. I encourage EVERYONE 18+ to pick up a copy of this novella and fall in love with Yuri and Beth.

    Originally reviewed at AsianCocoa's Secret Garden2.5 StarsBeth Mason is a successful chef who owns her own bakery called Decadent Dreams. Her business takes up so much of her time that she decides to join A Foreign Affair, an international online dating service. She soon meets Yuri a former manager of a popular night club. Unfortunately the club burns down leaving him unemployed. Beth finally gets the courage to invite Yuri to New York City for a weekend visit. They had become close friends through emails and web chats and Beth felt confident that their connection would grow stronger once they met in person. I liked both Beth and Yuri. Beth was a really strong, heroine who knew what she wanted and went for it. Yuri was a little conflicted about letting Beth pay for his trip to New York but once he got there his worries disappeared. I thought the relationship seemed a little unbelievable but I tried to go with it. This novella was packed with a lot of sex scenes. As Yuri and Beth only had the weekend to connect, they took full advantage of their limited time together and did it every waking moment. They mostly stayed in the hotel room and only ventured outside once to go dancing but that only lasted a few minutes before they locked themselves in a bathroom and went at it again. I can’t believe I’m saying this but I thought there were just too many sex scenes and not enough romance. This was a pretty steamy read and the characters were likable. Decadent Dreams gets 2.5 dragons.

    I have to be honest I don't read many contemporary books, not sure why other than I like to escape from reality and contemporary is too close to reality. And can I say my thoughts on that was so wrong. I am glad I was given the chance to read this book.Where to begin with this review? Other than I loved it !! Okay I know I need to write more than that don't I ?I will start with the characters. I absolutely loved Beth, she is a successful businesswoman looking for love and where did she find it on a online dating site. She meets Yuri and they strike up an online friendship that spreads over the months.Yuri, what can I say about him(I know who was used for the muse for this character and he is so sexy). I just want to say if I could find a man like him online, I might consider online dating.I read this in a matter of hours and enjoyed every minute of it, not only was it a sweet romance, boy was the smexy action hot!!(I had been freezing until I read this book.)I highly recommend Ty Langston and Decadent Dreams,and if you aren't such a fan of contemporary give this one a shot it will make you rethink like it did me. Right now, I am waiting on pins and needles for more of Yuri and Beth, but I am hoping for a Nik and Jessie book? And maybe Kelly, I really loved her and she deserves happiness too. Not asking for much am I but this book was just that damned good!!

    My Thoughts: Beth was unlucky in the love department and way too busy with her bakery Decandent Dreams to look at possible relationship prospects, so she does the next best thing. She joins a dating site called " A Foreign Affair" where she meets Yuri. Beth and Yuri , who is from Belaruse, talk online and Beth decides to invite him to New York to meet. I have to say, I didn't love this book but I did enjoy it a lot.Slow in the beginning but the paced picked up the further you got into it. I haven't ventured to trying the online dating sites, but this story would have tempted me. However, I have fallen for guys across seas I met through online social networks, so I could relate to it in that sense. I thought they had great chemistry and passion in the room. There were plenty of hot sex scenes to burn the sheets.Though i will say i wanted to see a little more outside of the bedroom where we know they had great chemistry. Maybe a little more outside excursions around the city, they did manage to make it to a night club for some dancing.The way they fall in love was sweet and I was rooting for them the whole book. Though i will say Beth cried alot for my liking. 3.5 out of 5 stars

    Note: This review, and all my reviews, comes from my blog - Romantic Rose's Bookshelf (http://romantic-rosesblog.blogspot.com) Book 1 in a possible series about Foreign Affairs?So this review is of an ARC provided, generously, by Langston for my review. This erotica, as most are, features a lot of sex. Just warning ya’ll, alright? With erotica there is a very delicate balance to be obtained. One can focus solely on the sex, which is fine. One can tone down on the sex and focus a bit more on the real life components, making it more like a really smutty romance. Unfortunately, I felt that Langston was trying to go for the real life components, and failed. Here’s a quick summary: Beth Mason and Yuri (no last name) met online at a multicultural dating site called ‘Foreign Affairs’. After e-chating and messaging for six months, Beth decides it’s time to take the next step – she invites Yuri (who lives in Belarus) to Stamford, NY for a visit. Yuri agrees, arrives, and the two enjoy a … ah… very good time. Right from the beginning. They continue to build their relationship, mostly through sex, until Yuri has to go home.First – even in erotica (which is not to imply that erotica is less valuable or well written than romance - please do not flay me alive) - there are character standards to uphold. Langston’s characters are not at all who they say they are - which made what she was telling and what she was showing different. Thus the characters act inconsistently throughout the book. Take, for example, Beth Mason, our female protagonist. She claims to be always worried about her business, yet she doesn’t even check in or call once while she’s taking her vacation – even though she talks to friends and goes clubbing. My mother owns a small business, and even when we’re on vacation she checks in via phone every day and checks emails. Real people can’t let their businesses fall by the wayside for any reason, and that aspect of reality was missing from Beth’s personality. Also, Beth claims to be the cautious sort who doesn’t fall into bed with anyone upon first meeting them. While I understand that she’s known Yuri for months (over e-chats and stuff) the first meeting is still a first, and one of the first things they do is get him naked. Literally, they've said like 5 sentences to one another and then he's naked. It’s rushed, forced, and not consistent with what she claims is her character. I also wish we’d seen more of Yuri’s perspective. I lacked a true voice for him, even after finishing the book.Second – Langston tries to infuse real world stuff into this erotica with discussions of jobs, marriage, a long-term relationship, etc. All of that reeks of a HEA which is more romance-y than erotica-y. That’s all well and good as well, as long as there is a relationship and discernible love under all the sex and lust - which there was not in this story. This left me concerned that this couple wasn’t going to make it (in life) after they, you know, finished 'making it'. Compatibility in bed does NOT equal compatibility in life. In most erotica, they don’t include plans for marriage for that reason – we don’t want to have to worry about the couple’s future compatibility and thus can focus solely on the sex and the here and now. Langston tries to write in a romantic HEA and future, and frankly that just didn’t work. She would’ve needed to write a lot more talking, compassion, and love into her story if that was going to work out. Other problems that should be mentioned include telling rather than showing and awkward phrasing which occasionally made me stumble as I was reading. The secondary characters were rather useless, I thought, as they didn't add much value and took away valuable time our protagonists could've been using to further their relationship. I didn't particularly like the external conflicts.Now, who wants some positives? This erotica was refreshingly modern – a true contemporary. Langston uses terminology and technology that is totally ‘in’ right now. She talks about romance in life this very minute. Internet dating, the freedom of two mutual, consenting adults in a hotel room doing whatever they want… it was all very real and current which I found I really liked. I also liked that Yuri was unemployed (for the moment) and Beth is a competent businesswoman who owns her own bakery. That role reversal (and the idea that a woman can be the breadwinner in a relationship without the man getting all sulky and pouty) was also very modern. I liked that Beth got to pay for things and tip the room service. I thought it was a remarkable, subtle way for Langston to show women’s new and ever-growing independence in society and how men are becoming okay with that. Women and men in Langston’s erotica are closer to being equals than most any book I’ve read. Yuri isn’t a slacker, either, or a leech so I felt confident Beth wasn’t being taken advantage of. Finally, this book was a very fast-paced read, so it’s good if you’re on a short plane ride or need something to fill an hour or two.“Sexy”ness rating: Hot – with kink included (anal)Overall Rating: DBottom Line: This book is good, but not fantastic. I would recommend it if you’re looking for something fresh, unique, and current because it fits all three of those. Unfortunately, the poor writing and character development really ruined this book’s chances of getting more than a C, and other issues pushed this book down to a D.

    This review was originally published on Musing of a Bookworm Can True Love be found online?Meet Elizabeth (Beth) Mason. She runs a successful bakery in Stamford, New York call Decedent Dreams. Beth spends all of her time working at the bakery and has no time to play housewife. This leads to the breakdown of her relationship. Rather than waste her time with another man, Beth decides that she needs a less traditional way to date. She finds ‘A Foreign Affair’ – a website catering to online dating for people living in different countries.Also looking for love is Yuri, a nightclub manager from Belarus. His best friend and roommate, Nik, has recently lost his father to illness and now his mother has cancer. Looking to get away from the reality of day to day life, after the nightclub he runs burns down, he too turns to online dating to fill the void left in his life.To be absolutely honest, I found this book very difficult to read. The editing process appears to have been skipped all together, with some parts of the text reading like it has been translated from Japanese using Google. The syntax is all over the place, as is the pacing. In some sections entire words have been left out, leaving the reader to assume what the writer was trying to say.The characters in this story have a lot of potential but no spark. I can see where the writer was trying to head with them, but it doesn’t feel authentic. There is no chemistry between the key players or their supporting staff. I was tempted on several occasions to relegate this book to the Did Not Finish (DNF) pile. This is really unfortunate, because I think with a few more edits and work, the story really could work. It is missing some very key elements though.The most integral element missing for me is how the story gets to the Happily Ever After (HEA). It all seems to contrived and there is no organic growth of the characters to get them to the ending point.Unfortunately, I was really disappointed with this book. The author has talent, but needs to spend more time on the editing process and solidifying their characterisations and development of narrative.

    Review originally posted at Ramblings From This Chick I hate to say it but I really didn't like this book. I really tried to get into it but it was very difficult for me. I had a real problem with connecting to the characters and the story. It just seemed so far fetched to me. I just didn't really believe that the events of the book could really happen. Since I had such a problem with connecting to it I finally gave up and put the book down. Now that was a few weeks ago and I just haven't had the desire to pick it up again. Don't get me wrong, I'm more than sure others will most likely enjoy this book, it just wasn't for me.

    Awkward. The dialogue was stilted and it wasn't due to Yuri's accent or English. The plot was a really sweet idea and both characters backgrounds were interesting, unfortunately there were several inconsistencies in Beth's character. Blushing one moment and pulling moves that a working girl knows the next was confusing and jarring. There were some proofreading errors and overall a bit of editing would make it a smoother read.
