    This Summer just got Hotter!!"4.5 Good vs Evil with a Love Triangle" stars LightningKathryn is the extra curvy blogger that has caught the eyes of local criminals by writing an article insinuating criminal Supes work for the Mayor. It's just a theory, but where there's smoke, there's fire and Kat is now in deep trouble. Lightning comes to the rescue and marks Kathryn as his.“If I was truly the asshole you made me out to be, I would bend you over the couch and fuck you rough and deep while you are high on my influence.”There is something about Kathryn that drives Supes crazy. She's beautiful, strong willed, with a sassy mouth. When The Shade offers to fully claim her and protect her from all harm, she is unable to resist his charms.The Shade“I want you to want it, kitten. Tell me you want my cock—tell me you want me to possess every inch of your soft little body,”When The Shade claims his Kitten against a wall, leaving her panting, with jelly for legs...things get complicated!!Wow!! What a great introduction to what promises to be an erotic adventure. Nora Ash has created a world where super humans walk amongst regular folk. They are sexy as hell and very involved in politics. The heroes, like Lightning, save lives. The Villians, such as The Shade, kill without remorse. And I am a sucker for bad boys!!Into the Darkness is an introduction to a longer story and is not a stand alone book. You will be disappointed if you expect a fully fleshed out story. But I am hooked and can't wait to read more about this world. I am also VERY intrigued by Kat and her developing relationships with The Shade and Lightning. I'm immediately starting book 2 Hidden in DarknessI highly recommend this series to fans of the erotic paranormal action genre.#1, Into the Darkness#2, Hidden in Darkness#3, Shades of DarknessArc received from author in exchange for a review

    My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!! ***Received a copy of the ebook for an honest reviewThe cover is awesome, she looks like the rope to me :)This is a new author for me :) This is the first part in a novella serial. This is for adults only due to the very steamy content. A serial is a book that is published in part to get into the readers hands more quickly. While getting to read each part is quicker than waiting for the whole book, it means that each part usually ends in a cliffhanger and is not a whole story by itself. If this bothers you, collect all the parts and wait until it is whole before reading it.This world that Nora Ash has created is pretty cool and action packed. Her writing style is fun, and it is easy to picture everything in my mind as I read which makes connecting that much easier :) Kathryn is a blogger, so I definitely connect with her, and the fact that she is not a skinny little twig too. I’m not sure what to think of the two supes we are introduced to because I find myself liking the bad guy more than the cocky good guy. But maybe we are tricked by putting labels on people and that is what is happening here, I have to wait to find out though and it might just kill me because this story rocks!!I think if you love superheroes, action, bad guys, and steamy scenes then you will love this story :) I can’t wait for the next part!!!

    SERIOUSLY SEXY, COMPLETELY CAPTIVATING AND DELIGHTFULLY ENTERTAINING !!!Title: Into the DarknessSeries: DarknessAuthor: Nora AshDesignation: Part One of Multi-Installment Serial, Not a Standalone Does Include CliffhangersGenre: Paranormal Menage Romantic SuspenseMy Rating: FIVE SWOON-WORTHY STARS *****Yowza! What a beginning! Into the Darkness is Part One of the brand spanking new serial, Darkness, by Nora Ash and oh my goodness, it looks like we're in for another wild ride! I first began reading Nora Ash last year when she dazzled her readers with her incredible talent and extraordinary imagination in her riveting and addictive Demon's Mark Series and I've been a fan ever since. I loved it and could hardly wait to see what Ash would dream up for her lovely readers next. Well, here it is and she never disappoints! Oh my! What a tasty little morsel she has given us to savor! The story is original, unusual, unique, exciting, thrilling, action-packed, full of danger, seductive and arousing! The narrative is exceptionally well developed, well crafted and very well written in the first person from the point of view of the heroine, a naive but stubbornly independent twenty six year old self employed cultural blogger. The dialogue is smart, flawless and flows effortlessly. The characters are complex, captivating, engaging, seductive and sexy as sin. The characters literally explode from the pages, grab your attention and capture your heart from beginning to end. Ash skillfully combines these elements into a brilliantly entertaining paranormal/supernatural romance filled to the brim with danger, darkness, intrigue, mystery, suspense, undeniable attraction and inevitable romance. Once I started reading, I simply could not stop. I now eagerly await the release of the next installment of this riveting new serial. It is a completely new spin on paranormal romance and actually has a great plot. I find that I really, really like it. Sometimes, different is not always better but in this case, it definitely is!When you live in a city like St Anthony that has a crime rate of forty percent above the national average, it's safe to say there's always a crime to write about but struggling, small-time, cultural blogger Kathryn Smith never thought she would get her badly needed big break through personal experience. On a late night run to her favorite coffee shop, she's held at gunpoint by two masked gunman while they rob the shop and demand cappuccinos to go. Huh? What self respecting criminal waits for coffee to go? Obviously, the stupid kind! But at least their stupidity results in giving her the chance of a lifetime - an opportunity to interview the masked superhuman hero identified in the press and social media as Lightning. He was tagged with the moniker as a result of his supernatural speed not because of his ability to control lightning, although after seeing him in person, she could imagine that he may actually be able to do just that! He's beyond sizzling hot! So, despite the danger, shattering glass and flying bullets, Kathryn whips out her trusty camera-phone and presses record. However, disappointment soon follows exaltation when she realizes that Lightning is just another typical, cheeky, flirty and obnoxious member of the male species. She would just have to work with what she has even if he isn't the "Golden Boy" she'd always imagined. She could still write an article about him and the other "supes" that would generate some much needed traffic for her blog and she would make sure it's a great article. He had the nerve to question her as a serious reporter?! Well, she would show him exactly how serious she could be. As opposed to all the other journalists who fawned and drooled over him, she would expose him and the other superhumans for the jerks they are! She would be just the opposite and expose the truth, so take that vigilante heroes! Not that she isn't thankful that Lightning had saved her chubby little behind, but his rude comments have jolted her from her hero worship and given her an entirely new perspective on the way the mayor and the city of St Anthony rely on the superhuman vigilantes to protect them from the ever looming darkness threatening to consume the city. The masked vigilantes act above the law, meting out their own justice and punishment, and they definitely should not be praised for their violent, unregulated conduct. They need to be policed and stopped. After being "semi-claimed" during a late night visit from Lightning, Kathryn becomes all too aware of the fact that she knows nothing about the true nature of the superhumans nor their special abilities. She's more determined than ever to uncover the truth but another unfortunate encounter with the criminal element of the city while looking for clues, leaves her in the clutches of the worst superhuman of all - Shade. The infamous Shade makes Lightning look like a poster boy for the Boy Scouts. And he wants to claim her too, but he intends to really "claim" her. Oh my glory! After two sexual encounters with the not so good heroes wondering who is good and who is bad and finally deciding both are bad, Kathryn soon comes to an awakening and jolting realization. In order to protect herself from Lightning and Shade and whatever personal vendetta they have against each other, she would need every single journalistic instinct she possesses to survive but little does she know that by questioning the morals and tactics of the mayor and the unregulated, glorified masked superhumans, she has opened Pandora's Box and her actions were about to rain down hell and wreak havoc on her safe, orderly life. She now has two super heroes claiming and protecting her but just who would protect her from them??? No spoilers from me but I will say this....Beautiful, curvaceous journalist who is too inquisitive for her own good-check! Two handsome sexy superhuman heroes who seem determined to claim one lovely journalist-check! Danger, drama, suspense, adventure, "super heroes", corruption and malevolent enemies-check! Heated attraction, fiery passion and steamy dreamy sex-you bet! Thrills, chills and a whole lot more! And just between you and me, these superhumans sound an awful lot like supernaturals, paranormals and shifters. I can hardly wait for the next installment and yes, I said installment so this is a serial and it does end in a cliffhanger. Fabulous entertainment and an awesome read!Complimentary copy received in exchange for an honest review but having said that, I would pose this question. Would I buy this book? Heck yeah!

    I really enjoyed reading this short story and look forward to reading the next, actually I'm dying to read it! Love the red hot passion the Shade showers on Kathryn.. She may believe he has mind controlled her, but the truth is who could resist?In a world where Superheroes who are really paranormal, exist, there is much crime among the humans and the paranormal as well. We meet the good hero Lightning and the bad one The Shade, but is he really evil, or is there a hidden agenda? Kathryn has no idea the mess she's gotten herself into when trying to weed out the truth for her blog... She is in so much danger, but not only from the evil in the city, but from her treacherous body as well.Very suspenseful and passionate series.

    Kat is a little annoying. Her need-to-know attitude is ugh. However, she’s a smart, sexy lady and I respect the hell out of her, even if I think some of her decisions are DUMB and she needs a good smack upside her head.Of course, without determined people who *need* to uncover stories, dastardly plots would never be revealed. That would be a cryin’ shame, especially the way Nora Ash writes.The plot was entertaining and well-written, focusing more on the relationship, but not neglecting the action. It was a good balance for the genre. But my faaaaavorite part? find *that* out, visit The Little Death Is A Big O blog at: https://thelittledeathisabigo.wordpre...

    Fantastic start to a new series. Characters are great, Kathryn who writes a blog gets herself in a whole lot of trouble when she stumbles on corruption in the mayor's office, then posting it on her blog sends the bad guys after her. Also throw into the mix two 'super humans' Lightening and The shade who are super hot, looking forward to reading more about those two! Really enjoyed this, read it in one go will definitely be reading the others in the series. I'm sure if you enjoyed the Demon's Mark series you will love this.

    Maddeningly Short...But so damned good!! How in the heck did I get sucked into another delicious serial?? The Shade is definitely coming home with me. Definitely recommend since I'm about to crack open the second one this very minute.

    I'm still getting used to serials, but with this one, it was a major blast. You had a beginning, middle and end with a plot that you know expands to the next level, but I was totally fine with where it chose to end itself. It was hot, suspenseful, kinda funny and I think I may come to dig Kathryn and the new superhuman men in her life.I liked the thought of superhumans being out in the open taking on superhero roles. I've never read a superhero novel, so I was a bit hesitant when The Lightning came in to save the day, but to see him- to know that he and the others, are all really just supes with a mask and nothing like Superman? WOW. Sign me up for this city! Cause it sounds amazing. I can't wait for the second installment. Definite must read if you love your crime fighters and reports getting down and dirty.

    First of four books in a hard erotica series. Total pages 427 - total price $9. The first book is free which allows you to see if you like the story and writing style before committing to any cost. The first book includes two harsh, hot sex scenes.A well-written superpower hard erotica story - yep, all those adjectives apply. The opening scene is the heroine witnessing a robbery being stopped by a super "hero". The scenes of superpowers in action are exactly what I expect from any superpower story. The scenes with the hard erotica are exactly what I expect from such stories down to the ropey streams. The well-defined characters and levels to the plot are what I expect from a well-written story set in urban contemporary times. Finding all three at once! Miraculous. Why didn't I give it a five-star for Goodreads? Well, I just didn't like the men of the menage. Ms. Ash does say they are "bad boys" - and they are; one is a jerk and the other a killer.But at the same time they, in their own ways, try to be good. The jerk has mind control and uses it on the woman to show how dangerous his world is, even going as far as using it to "mark" her. But not taking so far as to take her against her will. The killer likely has the same ability, but uses only force of will to bend the woman into submission. Again, like his opposite in her affections, he does not take her against her will. He waits until she screams for him and makes every effort to have her enjoy every second of his claiming.Both men want to dominate her and have her obey their wishes. Good luck with that fellows, Kat may be only human but she has a mind of her own.Trigger warning - intense near gang-rape before (view spoiler)[ super-save.(hide spoiler)]

    Kat is a blogger in search of revealing a big story about superheroes working for the mayor. I thought the storyline sounded interesting. First impressions... Kat annoyed me. She doesn't seem to do much investigating apart from trawling Google and walking around dark alleys without regard for her safety. Of course she gets assaulted in an alley but seems to bounce back so quickly that she's back out on the streets in the dark the following night. I found this irritating. Not much dialogue as the heroine is always rendered speechless. This is a very short read. Just an intro really. I'm going to give the next book a try but I am not overly hopeful.

    Not overly impressed but not a bad bookI think this book could have been a five-star book I think it has the potential I would like some more backfill on the characters I would have like to seen lightning have his own chapter like we did shade he was just not enough about lightning it makes you almost want to shoot for the bad guy I don't want to give too much away but that was kind of short and got a lot of detail like I said it needed more backfill

    Great read. Fun, humorous, and steamy supes! This series reminds me of the Superman movies where everyone has powers to some extreme. The line between hero and villains aren't black and white, sometimes they're both. I would've given a full 5 stars if it weren't for the nagging curiosity I felt at not knowing more of their origins. Then again, that's why I'm reading the next book!

    THIS BOOK DESERVES 5++++ and is on my favorites list!!Intrigue, corruption, secrets, vigilantes, superheroes is just a start of Into The Darkness!

She decides to get him back by making a blog about him and his kind. Although she has no idea the repercussions this small time blog may cause..the attention lands on her, Lightening comes to her explaining the dangers, even giving her a small ounce of protection. With his breath against her neck she desires so much more . He's in her mind , but she wishes he would take her completely! Kathryn can't shake all this and needs answers wondering what corruption she getting to close to , the mayor, the supes , and decides to go into the darkness, the dirt riddled filth of the industrial area. She's chased by thugs , knowing she's not going to make it out alive , but then she hears body parts torn apart, afraid to look...but she does, and finds out the most meanest, darkest, evil, vigilante is right in front of her!!

    Into the Darkness is the birth of a new enthralling series. I just love series especially when they're fascinating. They're like TV miniseries only in a book. This series has sexy powerful superhuman heroes.Nora's talent truly shines as she vividly describes each scene as she lures the reader into this captivating story.St. Anthony is corrupt, and Kathryn Smith an audacious, sexy, curvy blogger, fell right smack into the mess when she blogged an impressive article after meeting the hot superhuman hero Lightning. The article went viral, and has attracted all types of deadly dangers into her once sane life. WARNED by both The Shade and Lightning to stay out of trouble, Kathryn decides to finish what she started, and let the chips fall where they may!!!!This story is jammed packed with impressive and engaging characters, banter superb, murder, danger, intrigue, and earth-shattering-heart throbbing pulsating romance that will have you awe-struck....Exciting-incredible read. This story had me on the edge of my couch and I loved every second. Lightning and Shade make Captain America and Iron Man look ordinary, and Kathryn is as bold as the Black Widow. An extremely well written story that will have you wanting more. Absolutely fabulous... {I was given an arc for an honest review}. Without reservations I highly recommend this book, the author and of course the series.....

    Do not read this book if you have issues with grammar and sentence structure. If you have issues with England's English and slang this book is not for you. I don't normally have an issue with that sort of thing..yes it's irritating but it's manageable however; in this particular book I was getting whiplash between the two opposing cultures. Simply put it was a story written by an English woman about an American. That or she's an American writing a story about a Brit in America. I couldn't figure it out and it was sooo confusing. Amazon apparently decided to throw me into the cultural vortex that is Britain vs America and I have to say I believe I was the loser in this one. The story is almost non existent instead the author jumps straight into sex. That in an of itself is disappointing as the bare bones of a good story idea was actually there. Unrealized potential is perhaps the worst thing that can happen to a story and a reader. I really wish the author would have taken a bit more time to fully flesh out the back story, the world building, and the mystery between the characters. I'm ok with sex in literature but it can't ALL be sex with no story to support it. Sorry Amazon this week your suggested read gets one star from this reader.

    All I can say is aaagh!!!I loved this book but it ended before giving me an ending. I did not realize that it is the first of three episodes. Normally I dislike this kind of book but not this one. The characters are brilliant, two arrogant men, or should I say supes and one naive blogger. The twists between them are brilliant.This is a series that I am going to get the rest of, and that is something I don't normally say about serialized books.

    Free ARC for honest reviewWhat a fun read. Comic book characters in an erotic romance. It is the classic tale of the bad guys vs the good guys. Big difference is that instead of the good guy marking the girl it's the bad guy who ultimately comes to the rescue. Yeah, go bad guys. Hope you read.

    Copy given for honest review. This is a great start to a new series. I cannot wait to see what happens between Kathryn, Lightning and The Shade. The story also pulls you in with Kathryn's blogging and investigation into corruption on St. Anthony's. I want to know more about that part of the story. This book pulls you in. I cannot wait for the next book.

    Good vs Bad and somewhere in betweenSuperheroes both good and bad and a lowly little blogger who is now trying to find the truth to the corruption in her city. And just which ones of the superheroes are truly the good guy and which is the bad. Lines blur and claiming happen. Well written and very original storyline that's extremely entertaining to read.
