    If you're looking for a quick read with humor, sex and a bit of sushi thrown in for good measure, then Call me Lady is the right choice for you! When Joss isn't working as a beat cop on the west side of town, she loves taking her dog Cutey for a walk. On her way to the park one day, Joss stumbles upon a fancy phone charger and decides to look for it's rightful owner. It's too expensive to leave behind and she knows whoever it belongs to will be grateful she made the effort. . . Jahn is a widower who devotes all of his time to his job and his beautiful German Shepherd, Lady. They're actually both 'cops' but he spends his days training police dogs and he loves every minute of it. Now, if he could only find that special someone who loves dogs half as much as he does, then his life would be complete.I really enjoyed this short romance by Tassa Desalada and would highly recommend it! 18+

    This book has me in stitches. I can’t tell you what kind of stitches. In order for you to know, you’ll have to buy the book and experience your own stitches. What I can honestly say is, this book is like nothing I’ve ever read before, so there’s nothing for me to compare it with. It’s in its own unique class. Have fun!

    This was a well-written short story about a female cop who bonds with a cute guy over their dogs. At first they hate each other, but then it turns into a sweet romance between the two of them, and that blossoms into a really steamy sex scene. The protagonist is easy to relate to and the sex scene totally delivers. Great read!

    Reviewed by: Annie ArcaneA free copy was provided by the author.Initial thoughts:Quick, fun read with some pretty decent sizzle going on.What I loved:This short story was a nice showcase of Desalada's writing style, which was straightforward and snappy with a humorous undertone. I especially enjoyed the funny moment where the author appeared as an actual character and gave the heroine sex advice, plugged her book without apology, then vanished. Such a cute and clever marketing idea! The chemistry between Jahn and Joss was also very believable considering the brevity. Plus, I loved that they were both cops.What left me wanting:Hmm. This is somewhat difficult to explain but I personally prefer to "feel" characters vs. hear them. The constant Oooooh!!, ?!?, and !!!!!'s made me imagine Joss as always squealing aloud in excitement about everything, including sex: (view spoiler)[“Your pussy smells great, and I'm sure it tastes better.” Wait. That sounds familiar. That's right. He said that same line outside the sushi restaurant. Now I know what he meant when he said the same thing about the sushi. He was referring to my pussy instead of the sushi. I made the connection!! I'm so proud of myself! I love it!! I love his hints! (hide spoiler)]I'm quite positive this was intended to be tongue-in-cheek but it did distract me a bit during both dialogue and sexy times.Final thoughts:I'd recommend this to readers who enjoy their steam on the lighter, more fun side of the erotica fence.

    From the other reviews on this book, I'm not sure I read the same book they did, but I review everything I read so here goes.The good- Few spelling mistakes. The author committing to writing and publishing a book, which is never to be sneezed at.Unfortunately, that's where the good ends for me.The cover does not imply the genre in any way. At first I thought this was a farce with the author going for the highest count of ! in a book and classic style errors such as repetition, telling rather than showing, poor word choice, punctuation problems, stilted dialogue, but... it isn't. From her inner thoughts, the main character is more believable as a 13-year-old dreaming of have an Adult Married Life than a 31-year-old police officer. Descriptions of dogs pooping and how impressive it is that he looks after his dog (a police dog) but doesn't pick up after it in public places. Having a climax explained to her by a friend (the author) as if, at 31, she's never had one was... odd.In the one erotic scene, the author managed to get the word 'cl***ris' in eight times in one paragraph. Oh and instalove after one doggy play date.Woweee!!! The electric feeling just got electrified.OOOoooooooooooohhh!!!! I'm going over that cliff!!!Sorry, Tassa, didn't do it for me. I just found myself counting the o's and !I suggest readers pay attention to the 'look inside' before buying this one. I'm afraid I can't recommend.I'd be happy to re-read if the author revises.

    This book had amazing potential: two lonely dog-lovers who meet at the dog run is a great excuse for instant chemistry. There was great potential to amplify their attraction for one another through their mutual love for dogs and their mutual respect for how well each of them had trained their canine companions. My instincts tell me that this author had a grand vision from this book. She gave us details--such as the heroine's status as a cop, the hero's status as a widow, the cliquish nature of a group of regulars at the dog park--that prepare the reader for rich story development and setting commentary. But, instead of leading us anywhere with the many promising breadcrumbs that were dropped, the overall story never fully came together, and the critical need (for there to be an emotional connection between the characters) was never realized.The sex was awkward. The character execution didn't line up with the character traits that had been introduced. The maturity of the characters didn't gel with their ages, life stages, or careers. Also, the use of humor was confusing. It wasn't always clear whether the story was intended to be serious or tongue-in-cheek. The bones were good, but the execution was poor. By the end of this book, I found myself wishing that the author simply re-approach the story with a better edit. In its current form, I can't recommend this book.

    This book had left me in splits. It was quite a funny read. However, it was categorized as erotica and in fact, there was an intensely erotic scene in there. But the way the scene was written, it felt more like a s** comedy than an erotica.Joss is 30+ woman who owns a dog. She meets Jahn, another dog lover like her and the two get along with each other.This book has a class of its own. It’s author’s intense, raw, and unsophisticated take on sexual intimacy between a man and a woman, and I enjoyed it. However, there were some strange words that gave a bad taste. For instance, b*** crack and wrong hole.There was quite a usage of OOOOhhhh and aaahhhs and !!!! that sounded even stranger.All in all, if you want to read a s** comedy and don’t bother about reading the phonetics of moans and whines, this book will keep you entertained.

    A recent widower and a lonely single woman find romance at the dog park.Jahn comes across as arrogant and unlikeable at first, but a chance second meeting gives Joss time to see his potential. I'll admit that I never warmed up to him the way that she did, but their chemistry was credible enough. As with a previous book that I thoroughly enjoyed, Sex and Sushi, there's a detailed (and very steamy) erotic interlude.As other reviewers have commented, there is a strange scene in which the author appears as a character to plug a previous book. It would be tough to pull this off in a longer work, and it's definitely intrusive here. Still, the action quickly moves on to the developing romance between Jahn and Joss.An enjoyable book despite a few shortcomings.

    Call Me Lady was a delicious read.  The characters Tassa DeSalada has created are easy to engage with during this fun story. They are relatable as well as entertaining and I loved the addition of some comic relief at times to add to the realism of their interactions. The dialogue and action was paced well and added to the enjoyment of this read.  I love how the style is snappy and how the characters are quick witted with their thoughts and reactions. Dogs, lonely cops and steamy romance....what a great combination for this fun, sexy erotic book.  Great story! You must read this as I am sure you will enjoy the ride! I sure did...I was left with a satisfied smile on my face even though I enjoyed it so much I did not want it to end!

    I quite enjoyed this short, romantic romp. I also love dogs, and really connected with what the author was doing. Dogs are great companions for those people on their own. If you are looking for love and you are a dog owner, then you best find another dog owner who knows what it is like to care for your beloved canine. And, what better way than at a dog park.I like what the author is doing with this story. They sound like a conversation someone might have with themselves. They open up life in a very real way, and allow us to gain insight into the thinking of someone we all relate to.If you are a dog lover and enjoy a good romantic story then you will get a lot out of "Call Me Lady."

    Dogs, romance, and sexy cops make for a fun adventure. I am a bedtime reader and love quick stories that I can devour in one sitting. Call Me Lady was perfect for that but also left me a little sad that it was over so soon. The characters are quirky and weaving the dogs into the plot made the story fun. I'm excited to read more by this author.

    This is a beautiful story about how two people, lost in this huge world of ours, find each other. It's a true love story, and I highly recommend it to lovers of romantic short stories. It was nice to 'meet' Tassa. The author cleverly wove herself into the story. Reminds me of Kurt Vonnegut. It was wonderful!!

    This was a really good short story. It moved quickly and was entertaining. Also this book is very juicy so buckle your seatbelt before reading.

    I have to admit, this story confused me a little. I've read Sex and Sushi from this author, and I knew what I was getting into sex wise. It could have been a sweet short story about a widower meeting someone at the dog park with some hot sex scenes in there. What kind of confused me entirely is that the book is told first person by a character named Joss. The author is an actual character in the book and Joss repeatedly mentions how hot she is and how young she looks. The author gives some sex advice, plugs her book, Sex and Sushi, to the main character, and then disappears from the book.I have no idea if this is meant to be tongue in cheek or why the author made an appearance to plug another book in a short story. It could have easily been a friend of the main character who gave her sex advice and the book Sex and Sushi mentioned in the back of the book.I enjoyed the short story aside from that because I didn't really see the point of it

    This is a story of boy meets girl. Or rather, girl meets boy through dogs meeting each other. The inclusion of the dogs into the story gave it a certain sweetness. The author also gave Jahn an obstacle in his past to overcome. This was a smart move, as it enriched his character and gave him an element of depth. The proofreading was excellently done, leading to a nearly grammatically perfect novella.However, the writing style and the main character were complete turn off for me. Due to these two things, the story never really hooked me. Joss, our heroine and narrator, behaved far more immaturely than I’d expect for someone of her age. She also seemed to be an emotional sort of person, becoming offended quickly and speaking in a good deal of exclamatory statements. The story is told in the sort of style one would see in a diary. We experience the story through the eyes of the main character, the reader being exposed to every thought and feeling that tints her own personal telling of the situation. I have no problem with this style of narration. But to do it effectively, there has to be a certain artfulness about it. That artfulness was absent for me. The narration seemed often a transcription of events. There was also a certain repetitiveness of words, or a description given to explain something that is already obvious to the reader. And like the main character, a sense of immaturity plagued the narrative.Though this book is classified as fiction, about 40% in, I felt like I was being served a lesson about sexuality and finding the right partner. It felt odd and distracted me from the plot. I understand what the author was attempting to do, but this segment’s (Tassa’s advice) could have been shortened and woven more casually into conversation in order to achieve a better result.I can see how others may have enjoyed the story. However, it simply didn’t appeal to me.

    Call Me Lady was a little outside of my comfort area for reading so I don't know the genre-specific relevant concepts to comment on. I also received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.Call Me Lady never truly rung with me as a reader. I just couldn't invest myself in the characters or the story. I believe the major culprit for this was the prose, which read poorly and stilted through the entire book. The second main qualm I had with the story was that romance was forced. Joss, the female lead, first meets Jahn while walking her dog experiences a very poor first impression, an impression that is then later echoed by a close friend of hers. Despite this poor impression, and with Jahn doing very little to disabuse her of it, she agrees to date with him their relationship proceeds from there. From that point onward their romance is fine, but it still necessitated a 360 turn on her part to begin and for Jahn's distasteful personality quirks to utterly vanish.The story and prose does improve when the actual sex scene starts, but that has its own difficulties. Namely, Joss repeatedly affirming how amazing the sex felt in her head to the reader. Not only was this intrusive on the actual sex-scene but after the sixth or seventh exclamation it grew tedious. The events taking placer were never allowed to speak for themselves, and that sapped much of the intensity fro the scene for me.

    Stylistically, probably not for me- a lot of stream of consciousness, rapid fire sentences, but this isn't too dissimilar from the few books I've read in this milieu, so I won't take any points off for that. As far as the erotica is concerned, it got a little redundant at points, especially in the verbiage. The plot felt a little contrived, but again, not unexpected in the genre. I had to dock a star for the dialogue which felt a little stilted to me and another for the technical issues- referring to a character by name when he was as yet anonymous in the story, Raiders of the Lost Arc instead of Raiders of the Lost Ark, etc. The other item that was just bizarre for me, which I did not know what to make of, was the author inserting herself into the book and using that cameo to plug her other book.

    I think this book is meant to be a quick and dirty erotica book, with a lot of humor and a bit of sexual philosophy thrown in.It read like the setup for a cheap porno. A cop takes her dog to the dog park, finds a phone charger laying about, returns said charger to a snooty but hot purebred german shepherd owner and talks to him, in turn taking offense and then not taking offense to everything he says. And things escalate from there.The main character, who was supposed to be a hardened 31 year old beat cop in the city, came across more like a virginal teenager. The narrative was all over the place.I think the premise could work. With a bit of work to fill out the characters, this could be an engaging piece.But it did not work for me.

    I enjoyed this quick read. First the main character is my age, 31, and obsessed with her dog (as am I lol). She meet Jahn while walking her dog and it sparks a cute relationship. It's a super easy read that gets straight to the point (after its done talking about dogs). Ending was not surprising, but none-the-less enjoyable.

    This is a short romantic story. ‘Call Me Lady’ is well written and entertaining. I love that the author made her character’s dog lovers. It is a wonderful love story about two people who find each other. I would recommend this story to romantic lovers. Over all, the author did a great job writing this novel.
