    Wow! Read in a day. Glancing at some of the other ratings and "reviews", I'm a bit confused. How can someone look at this cover and not think this is going to be an erotic novel. How about learning what publishing houses specialize in. Hello, it's by Samhain and the back cover has the awesome disclosure of "Warning, this title contains the following: multiple orgasms, spanking, misuse of kitchen utensils and sex with monsters". But then, reading a bit further in reviews, the majority of bad ones are from those that downloaded this for free. Seriously? You got it for free and you're still going to bitch and moan? Anyway, off the soapbox, but I did totally bump this up to a 5 based on the hating although it was probably more of a 4.Yes, this probably could have been a great concept for a paranormal romance as others have pointed out, but that's not where the author wanted to take it. And, yes, *gasp* there is actually a plot between the sex and a pretty damn good one. A group of 3 monsters learned of humans from watching TV and movies and have the idea to use that medium to tell their story as they become endangered as humans destroy the world for resources. But, well, again given the warning and that is from Samhain, this is not for the tame or more vanilla oriented folk.

    Couldn't resist this kindle freebie, but it was a DNF for me. Lights, Camera ... Monsters starts out promising. The hunky hero is appealingly unsure and the idea of monsters attempting to do some PR ahead of outting themselves to the human world was an interesting premise. But I am not really an erotic reader and this is definitely an erotic read - there is just a little bit of story and lots and lots of sex, and the language and 'activities' escalate and get kinkier, so I only made it about a third of the way in before it got to be way too much for me and I just skimmed the rest - and this was long before the heroine has sex with the hero while he is in his monster form complete with 'monsterhood' (can't say manhood now can I?) the 'size of a baseball bat' (yowch!) I guess I shouldn't have been surprised since the warning actually said it all - I just wasn't expecting it to be quite so literal.

    Could have been good if there was more of a story...and characters weren't so robotic. I started skimming the sex scenes after awhile.

    Although I have read books where Lila DuBois was a co-writer, this is the 1st time I have read a story written by her alone. This book was written about 10 years ago. There are a couple of typos/errors. The writing is sometimes a bit awkward. However, for the most part it is an interesting story and definitely a very original plot. It also led me to have some very unexpectedly profound thoughts about different cultures that are so unlike our own we tend to view them as 'monstrous'. Considering this is an erotica book, it has some very surprising layers to it. All you have to do is open your mind and look beyond the 'Monsters' to find them. I wonder if the author wrote the book with these layers in mind, or perhaps the layers came to be as the story unfolded itself for her. I am intrigued

    If you like your paranormal romance books scorching, hot and sexually graphic then this book is for you......I loved it ! It pulls you in and doesn't let you go untill the final page.Ok, it was not a book of epic proportions or a book of great literature , but, it was fun.Sometime's after you have finished reading somthing very intense , you just need hot and fun :-) LCM fits the bill !This is the 1st book in the Monsters in Hollywood series. There was not a lot of world building in this book ( would have liked to have learned more about the monsters world and how they came to be on our planet, Ms. Dubois made it seem that they had always lived here and learned about humans as youngsters breaking into homes and watching tv and going through things while families were out for the day and than they went into hiding at night.A few of the monsters Michael, Henry & Luke ( this is Lukes story ) were fed up with hiding and wanted to go public with their story and went to a movie studio to to see if there was any interest....of course all 3 were drop dead gorgeous in brand new human bodies. He met with an up and coming Hollywood producer, Lena whos nothing but business. She just thought Luke was just another good looking amateur who wants to be famous. Howver she doesn't want to let him go either so she invites him to dinner....than she has an incredible night of the hottest sex she ever had in her life thinking it was just going to be a one night stand...they fall asleep and she wakes up & looks over to see a monster in her bed.....what should she do, runaway or attack ? There is also a mystery in the book as well, but the relationship is played up more .It was such a quick read, read in less then a day and look forward to reading the 2nd in the series My Fair Monster...think lite & fun and enjoy it !

    Such a promising idea. If this had been an UF, the idea behind the story might have been great. As a paranormal romance, it is the usual stuff: sex, lust/love at first sight, happy ending :). It's not bad, it simply lacks the tension that makes a common romance into a good book. The characters, moreover, are pretty cardboard. I did not find much depth in them.

    Erotica loosely disguised as a paranormal romance. It was all sex and very little actual story. The male protagonist, Luke, was a total wuss and I wanted to smack him upside the head.

    I have chosen to give the whole series review to each book so that buyers can get a full vision of what to expect – overall enjoyable but with some issues.Lights, Camera…(Book 1): Calypso Productions is a Hollywood company run by five beautiful and talented women; Lena, Jane, Akta, Margo and Cali.One day a group of three exceptional looking men, Luke, Henry and Michael walk into their office with a proposal for a movie.But here is the twist, they are monsters, hiding from persecution and are slowing dying out. They need to get their message out that they want to be friendly and integrate into human society without hiding. They are already among us as their Seer has provided them all the spells, in the form of gorgeous tattoos that allow them to change from their monster bodies to human form. However, the girls laugh them off and send them on their way, not without Luke begging for a date with Lena, who obliges because he is after all gorgeous and she is starting to feel like a born again virgin.The monsters that LD describes are both horrifying and beautiful, and apparently get all their sexual experience from succubae!! This is an erotica book after all and it soon turns to some rip roaring sex from Luke and Lena. But apparently magical spells don’t hold well after eight hours of sex and a night’s sleep as Luke inadvertently lets his monster out for Lena to wake up next too, he unfortunately looks like a demon with his huge wings, horns and cloven feet!This leads to some humourous moments and then the plot really begins. There are other humour moments when you realise that all their “knowledge” about humans comes from watching TV shows and movies, although this is a little odd when they can actually interact with humans, so that falls flat after a while.Just as the girls are getting on board and seriously thinking that this movie could be a go ahead a monster that is not fully with the plan tries to kill Lena and the plot really takes a twist and starts to sizzle as much as all the intense sex that is going on.Some very sad moments in this first book that really seal it as a story and not just erotica.My Fair Monster (Book 2):Whilst the first book clearly sets the scene and then continues to concentrate on the love that has now blossomed between Lena and Luke, it is now obvious that this is now Jane and Michael’s turn.More body numbing sex occurs but Michael’s monster is not what you would expect!A new monster has joined the group, Runako, he is not convinced that humans and monsters should integrate. With his sad back story and clearly still painful memories I began to agree with his points of view on human annihilation instead.The often grin inducing humour is still here, along with the eyeball popping sex but this book felt more like a love story and there was no clear moving forward of the story.However LD sets up book 3 very neatly at the end.I was aware of quite a few editing errors in this book which were a little distracting.Gone with the Monster (Book 3):This is clearly Runako and Margo’s chapter and she is one tough lady that needs a tougher hombre to crack her. So he kidnaps her and takes Margo to a cave!This allows for some really funny moments, as by default these two characters are much more humourous. Runako’s monster just happens to be the biggest demon looking thing you can imagine.Whilst Margo is filled with self-body issues, Runako is clueless about human female emotions generally and this makes for great banter not to mention the almost painful but highly erotic sex scenes.Again we are shown the horrors of humans vs monsters in the past and why Runako is so afraid of integration. When he fully shares his pain with Margo she confesses that she may know who did they terrible things to his sister.With this knowledge a new element of revenge and killing enters the story line and gives it an interesting twist.New monsters and plot elements are introduced in this book at it continues to not shy away from going to some deep dark places in some XXX sex scenes.Again, some editing issues, but not so distracting this time.Have Monster will travel (Book 4):Now that the story line is not just about bringing the monsters out into the open, the secret Black Wolf agency trying to capture and experiment on monsters is a focus.Henry goes off to China to seek out and plead for help from the secret, yet powerful warrior clan.Tokaki is their most prized warrior and agrees to come and help them, but as the fight coordinator on the movie!!There is a lot more movie speak in this book which was becoming tedious. The two new characters Tokaki and Jo, the artist, are so obviously going to be the next couple that get together but their characters and plot lines are so cliché to make it feel like some 70s porn film. Whilst I understood that Tokaki was the Chinese version of the westernized idea of monsters, he turns into a huge white tiger that looks a lot like the parade dragon/lion, I got fed up reading about their Chi - I am not reading these books for intellectual stimulation! Not to mention that about 50% into the book we have only peeked at a surprised penis so far, and if Jo says his male body is “ridiculous” once more I would have screamed, and not in pleasure.The little movie one liners were funny and the best character in this chapter was Madoka the teenage sister, a beautiful purple dragon.Eventually Tokaki and Jo get together, but he is rude, obnoxious and oblivious to her feelings which of course are fixed by a marathon watching of chick flicks. I found this to be very condescending and not fitting with the rest of the books. Although they are getting a bit boring in every monsters mating for life with each girl he picks to enlighten on monster sex.If I had not already bought the last two books in the series I would have given up at this point as the central plot is missing, the editing and continuity is way off and the sex has become boring.The notion that brilliant sex can suddenly fix all female hang up and make you have instant self-belief is a little nauseating or maybe I have yet to enjoy that sort of sex!The ending paragraph was good and it pulled together some unanswered questions from early in the book but does not make you want to read the fifth installment.A Monster and a Gentleman (Book 5):You are now thrown forward into movie production. Apparently all on set people believe in monsters and none have run screaming to the loony bin but surprise, surprise one has leaked photos to the press despite huge confidentially clauses.Cali the total bitch of the group has been lusting after Seling, a fire breathing dragon, who joined the group during a rescue at the Black Wolf camp, and this is clearly their chapter for sexual fun and eventual mating.No mention thus far of the plot twist involving the Black Wolf camp, if they were such a threat then why forget them so easily?? The editing is much more of an issue in this book and LD could have done with some better beta readers/editors to pull her inconsistencies together. Why every single woman in this group has to be hung up on their lack of body perfection is now becoming annoying. Plus the once sizzling and daring sex scenes are now repetitive, same sex different couple.Not sure on the odds of each monster finding their exact mate within the five women in LA who happen to be making their movie.Eventually investigations get under way into who leaked the photos of the monsters, trying to out them.The monsters call on their Seer, Mauve the Banshee.Between the Banshee and the Black Wolf militia, that suddenly make a reappearance this is a lot more violent action in this book. Towards the end is more of a monster story, much less erotica, even if boring in this book.This series has sort of flunked in the middle not sure if its erotica, a story, both of neither. The characters have become one dimensional and often slide off the page with no thought. The final book has been read simply as I am hoping for a conclusion.The last of the Monsters (Book 6): Flashbacks from varying PoV allow for the story of Henry, the final monster and Akta - the final couple that need to pair off to make this all so convenient.Mauve the Banshee has discovered who the leak is and punishment is interesting. The Black Wolf men are used in a unique way.Once the movie is finally out, so are the monsters and they are whisked off to meet all the “special” people of the world.The relationship between Henry, the colour changing monster and Akta is childish and skin crawling to say the least.A dramatic finale allows the series to redeem itself at the end.Overall this could probably have been four books, better edited and more flesh and brains given to the characters. The first book was amazing and but the sex soon became repetitive and plot lines were pathetic, or at least not told well.For a fast bit of erotica LD is a good writer as she does not shy from some eye watering moments but as a storyteller, nope not her strong suit.The movie references in the stories and book titles was very clever and you can’t help but love the cover art!

    ~* 3.5 Stars *~Definitely Sexy But Not What I Was ExpectingLena and her four best friends run a production company in L.A. They're hip, trendy, and current, and they're building a stellar name for themselves in the industry by focusing on quality entertainment. She is always on the lookout for promising new clients, but never had that promise held more appeal than when three utterly delicious men walk into the conference room. It may have been the worst sales pitch she'd ever heard, but the apparent front man of the three, a stunningly gorgeous man named Luke, stirs all sorts of juices in Lena. Despite the waste of time the meeting turns out to be professionally, she suggests a further discussion between the two of them that night over dinner. It wouldn't have been difficult for the dinner to go much better than the meeting had, but even Lena is surprised to find out that above and beyond how attractive she finds Luke physically, she is even more entertained by his companionship. Their chemistry is off the charts and the sex is phenomenal. There is, in fact, nothing that could dim the exquisite memory of the best night of her life...until she wakes up, rolls over, opens her eyes, and sees a seven-foot tall, winged, fanged, shaggy monster in bed next to her.That's pretty much when the screaming starts.Convinced some monster had eaten her new lover, Lena is both terrified and pissed, and it takes a hurt and embarrassed Luke a while to calm her down enough to explain that he hadn't been eaten and he is, in fact, a monster. And that he and his friends had come to her company in desperate hope that they could help launch a preemptive campaign to prepare humanity for their existence without sparking panic and causing the relentless slaughter of the last of his kind.Hollywood: gateway to public opinion and recent home to a sex god of a monster. Lena does so love that town.I have to admit, a quick read of the product description of the book before I downloaded it to my Kindle gave me the impression that Lights, Camera...Monsters is a paranormal romance. I should've payed closer attention to the warning, because this is definitely an erotic paranormal romance. It's an important distinction; a fact made crystal clear when I wasn't anticipated it. I'm not saying it's a bad thing. I like erotic paranormal romance. But in this case, it created a few problems for me.It's not just about the amount of sex in the book, which is a lot, or the level of graphic description, also a lot. Nor is it the light kink, which was fine. It was the fact that all of those things combined and became the largest part of the story by far, substituting romance for sex, eclipsing an anemic external conflict plot thread, providing virtually no character development, and overwhelming the limited world building and mythos creation.The concept of the story is a bit kitschy and kooky, but it is definitely original. The characters were ill-defined and two dimensional, but endearing (especially Luke). There was more than one plot hole, but the guilty pleasure I took in the humor and random bouts of comedy kept me from focusing too heavily on it. And the external conflict was appallingly bereft of development and was so quickly resolved it was laughable, yet...I can't deny that I found it all rather entertaining.I had a hard time believing that the monsters call their species monsters, though. That bothered me a lot, and didn't make a lot of sense in the big picture. They have their own language and their own culture, have hidden themselves away from people, but they define their species based on human preconceptions and labels? That didn't track for me.Yet despite the drawbacks, I found myself oddly drawn in and more than a little captivated by Luke in particular, whose intense efforts to fit in completely charmed me more than once. I wish there had been more time allotted to Luke and Michael and Henry together, because their scenes were showstoppers. And I didn't detest Lena, which is definitely a point in the books favor.In truth, I wish I had started the book with the advanced awareness of its erotic nature, because I think my expectations would have been different and I would have enjoyed the read even more. That being said, I can't complain at the price I paid (gotta love those free Kindle downloads), and don't feel like it was a waste of time. In fact, there was enough promise and potential in DuBois' writing that I'm interested in checking out the rest of the series in the hopes that the smutty, sexual, lightly kinky fun shares the page with a more well-rounded and better conceived plot and fully formed characters.Warning: This book contains graphic scenes of sex and alternative sexual situations including but not limited to: light BDSM, anal sex, and monster sex. Not recommended for young or sensitive readers. ~*~*~*~Reviewed for One Good Book Deserves Another.

    I must say it's a pretty creative story. Reads much like the title - monsters coming to hollywood, trying to get a movie deal. There's three of them, left their hidden home area (not Hell - apparently there's an outpost in South America though) and are trying to get the h's indie movie studio to make this movie in order to change public perception about 'monsters.' (There were a couple very minor errors, but nothing inordinately distracting. Only one instance that I caught of an already removed but magically reappearing for second removal.) Overall, a very good read. I'd rec this for someone looking for a break from a longer, more serious story, or perhaps use it while waiting for an appointment. Good writing, decent character development and props to the author for not devolving into campy humor. Readers should take into consideration this is a shorter story, and a part of a series - don't expect everything to be wrapped up in a nice, neat bow.I give it 4/5 due to the length of the story. I will say that this is more of an erotica than a romance, but the romance is there and it's incredibly sweet. I say this because the explicit descriptions will bother some readers - and there are several very detailed encounters, and light BDSM themes. There were several points during the story that had me groaning at the interaction, mostly because it perfectly mirrors reality. (view spoiler)[For example, h is recovering from injury that H healed (inflicted by another of their kind), and she's thinking he's taking care of her due to guilt.“I think repaying your debt only requires you to make sure I don’t die, I don’t think you have to pretend to care about my feelings.” “Pretend to…” Luke shoved to his feet. Lena watched as he paced to the wall, his strides long and hard. Luke pulled back his fist and punched the drywall. The loud crack of bone and flesh against plaster startled Lena. She sat up, eyes wide as she watched Luke. “I asked you to speak plainly with me and yet you talk in riddles.” His voice was the low growl that had once frightened her. Now, both fear and arousal came, as he’d conditioned her, with his exquisite touch, to find pleasure in that deep rumble. “I’m taking care of you because knowing that you were hurt because of me tears at me. I care for you because when I saw you hurt and suffering the breath stopped in my chest. If I hadn’t been able to heal you I would have torn the stars from the sky in my grief.”Now, that's not the entire story - but yeah, it's the beginning of the end of this particular story. (hide spoiler)]I'm pretty excited to read the next in this series - My Fair Monster, then Gone With The Monster.Enjoy!

    Let's be honest here, this is exactly my type of book. That said, even if it wasn't I would have been sold on "sex with monsters". I mean... Sex With Monsters! Awesome.This book? Pretty awesome itself. Because of the aforementioned sex with monsters PLUS there's that whole sex with a human dude thing. Or, you know, he's human as long as the spell's on him. I mean, he's technically a monster regardless of what form he wears. A cat is still a cat even if you dress it up like a dog. Which is a weird analogy and I'm just going to move on.I liked this book. It moved quickly but Lena was trying her pretty darn hard to have a one night stand with Luke so the fast pace wasn't much of a surprise. I liked that Luke walked the border between Alpha and bashful and the reasoning behind why made sense. I liked that Luke accepted Lena and all her kinks without batting an eye and he pushed her to try things she hadn't really considered.It was sexy and hot and there was that whole sex with monsters thing. Yeah. If you're into that, this is totally the book for you. I am into that. In a literary sense. Mostly because I don't know any honest to goodness monsters. 'Cause if I did? Who knows.-Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal06/16/14 reread - Enjoyed it on the reread! I always like when that happens!

    WTH was this! Ummm first of all the writing, grammar, and editing was horrrible! I'm not all that great at the English myself but OMG did the author write and edit in the dark? And what was with the author trying to be witty...mmmm sorry none of that banter was mildly amusing! I could hardly pay attention to this bland story! Monsters needing to be outed by an all female production company in Hollywood...c'mon now r u serious? Their MONSTERS they should have no problem taking over Hollywood if they wanted. The whole monster concept could have went some where but there was no effort. I did not like any of the characters. First off the h was just annoying... one min she was trying to be some hard ass business women, next she was some whining skinny chick talking bout having " fat sweats" it didn't work at all! The H was sweet and painfully naive(emphasis on the naive). Even he could have worked but oh no the author had to through a twist in (sarcastically said)! he turns into some ugly ass monster. He has big ass eyes, horse legs and hair, and red skin ( not my cup of tea). The author could of at least given his monster side some redeemable quality! I have always hated not finishing a book that I started but I couldn't even be mad myself for not completing this one. I have to congratualte myself on getting past the first page! I really tried Ms. Dubois but you missed the mark for me.

    This was a fun book about endangered species. The twist is that it's monsters whose habitat is being encroached on. Three of the young warriors avail themselves of a magic spell to make themselves human. They get the brilliant idea to go to Hollywood and find someone to make a movie and/or TV show about monsters and show that they are not such bad guys. Of course they are beautiful, sexy men who have been without females for some time because the lady monsters have all died off. They have gotten all their information about humans off movies and that leads to some silliness as they find out about human sexuality and more mundane things like style and eating out. If this was a movie, it would be a crackpot comedy. There is a LOT of sex in the book. I know not everyone will agree with me, but I would like to see this rewritten with less sex and more story. It would make a great comic fantasy.I grade on a curve like they used to do at school. It's better than average because there are lots of new wrinkles in this story. I'd give it a 3 1/2 stars.

    In order to change humanity's perception of monsters, Luke and his gorgeous monster buddies head for Hollywood and the movies. Lena is a hot young producer who is up to the task.What a great concept. The idea is absolutely terrific. And utterly ruined by gratuitous sex. Now don't get me wrong, I knew this was erotica but when its all about the sex instead of a story, then it's not erotica and its p-o-r-n. I'm totally cool with porn but reading it is just not as good as watching it. If I'm reading smut, I expect to have a solid story with a whole bunch of sex not the other way around.The sad part is that fans are ripe for a good urban fiction/pnr/erotica combo. Look at the success of True Blood. Had this story focused a bit more on the story, it would have been full of win. As it is, it's just ok if you are really hard up for monster/demon sex.BTW: There is a demon/human sex scene which (although it didn't freak me out or anything) some readers might find a bit squicky.

    Hmm, yea this book made no sense to me. There was no plot, just a story of sex, fetish and hentai porn. Enjoyed that though, gave me some ideas to try. Didn't like like none of the characters because there really wasn't much development. Just "Hello, we three monsters, we want movie, I like human, me sleep with human, me eat, me sex you long time more, me eat and fuck, ooh look a hint of a bad guy, me save you, me take care of human, human afraidddd, me love human, we have more sex, we eat, look another sighting of bad guy who is really our friend and human mate bff wants to fuck him. Me tell human she mate, we fuck, the end." They didn't even focus on making the movie and all this happened like in a week? It did had a few entertaining scenes, but meh. I don't know if I will be bothering with the other books.

    I thought that this was a cute and sexy paranormal romance. The women are business owners and the...um, men?...are the ones at a loss.Luke and his two friends, Henry and Michael, approach Lena and her associates with a movie/tv proposal. They want to use Lena & company's production outfit to tell their story. Only, their story happens to involve the fact that they are monsters. Literally. It would have been helpful for Lena to know this before jumping into bed with Luke. Though, who has time for questions when there is amazing and explosive sex to be had? I found myself loving the strong female characters, rooting for the fish-out-of-water guys, and giggling at the misunderstandings. The guys do try. This was a light, easy read.

    I thought first that I will not love the book so much. Well, a book about kind monsters ... lolBut yeah, monsters are cute.And monster are well hung if you know what I mean ;)The story is quite good, the sex scene are hot, and there is one where you have a scene between the monster in his monster form and the human woman ... o_O Hooooooooooooooooot !

    New and differentThis is the book that started my love for Lila. Monsters are not the bad guys, they're sweet, funny, misunderstood, and HOT.The premise for this series was a new take on the good girl likes the bad boy.We all know what happen when cities expand, the animals in that lived in that area lose their habitat and have to try to live elsewhere or die off. That is the story that Luke, Micheal, and Henry are trying to get Lena and her friends at Calypso Productions to tell.Lila's brings you into this world with her writing, the way she describes the people and surroundings are vivid. I love this book, you have to read it!!

    Really, this was more sex than much else, but after looking at the cover (on the Kindle) AFTER reading the book, I saw that it was published by Samhain. If I'd known that from the start, I would have expected it.Basically, monsters are real and want to get themselves some good PR, so they approach a production company to help them bring their story to the public. This book didn't really advance that storyline, it was more about one of the monsters (Luke) having lots of sex with one of the women who run the production company (Lena). I know there are more in the series so I'm assuming the movie storyline will progress over time.

    The three "monsters" Luke, Michael and Henry come to Hollywood on a mission to save their people. Luke falls in love with the human Lena. There are VERY steamy sex scenes, but they dominate the book, so the actual plot is simply background and not really developed. I wish there had been more on the "monsters", about where they are coming from, how they live etc. I love Luke, he tries so hard to make everything right, very sweet character. I doesn't feel right to me though that they are referred to as monsters.

    I bought this book a while ago, and it has been sitting on my home screen. I was reading another erotic book, and wanted to read a "normal" book when I wasn't in the mood for erotic. From the title, I didnt think this was erotic. I guess I should have read the description!!!! Because WOW. It was hot. The premise was ridiculous, more than most paranormal books. There were way too many errors, but that being said, I liked it and downloaded the next.

    This was a cute, quick read. I liked the monsters, and I liked the flow of the story. One thing I didn't care for was how hung up on the "hotness" when certain things were a serious situation. Other than that it wasn't too bad overall. I liked the couple and the basis of the story. It's one that I haven't read before and a good twist and take on something. I liked it and look foreword to the next one.

    Although I loved the plot and the characters, I would have prefered less sex scenes so that I could have even more story line. Even with the steamy scenes, and I do mean steamy (don't think I will look at a kitchen spoon the same) the plot line was well worth it and I am intrigued to continue the series.

    I got this book after meeting Lila DuBois and her husband at the RT Convention 2013. I liked the premise and I always give any sort of paranormal romance a chance. It was interesting and engaging. I liked the concept of humanist monsters. Some very intense scenes that I am sure took some out of their comfort zones. Well-written and tastefully done. I'll read the next one soon.

    Interesting and unique concept. Def more on the erotic side with some only slightly campy humor that did fit but sometimes made the story seem…superficial isn't quite the right word but close. Fun read, though, when cute super sexy paranormal time is called for. Liked that Lucas came across all alpha gorgeous male but was unsure of his "human" self and being involved with a human woman.

    Nice change from the usual paranormal romance fare - instead of vampires, weres or witches, this has monsters. Better yet, they've come to L.A. to . . . what else? Make a movie! I loved the concept, and liked the various characters introduced here. The romance was pretty steamy, including some light kink -- overall, a great start to a series, and I immediately dived into the next book!

    I should probably be too embarassed to admit that I read this book. It's a freebie romance/erotica book from kindle/amazon, and it's not bad. Some of the sex scenes (which would be most of the book) are over the top and sometimes hilarious. It's not terrible, and if erotica is what you're looking for, then here it is.

    3.5 starsThe title while accurate in some respects really doesn't give the reader a good idea of what to expect. The story is actually quite sweet with some wicked hot sex including while in alternate form. Fun and cheeky in a chick lit meets BDSM way.

    Smutterific! It's been a while since I've read a smut book. Is the story good? I think there may have been a wee bit of story between the good bits. Ah, hell, it's all good bits. Good literature? No. Fun? Yup. And that's that.
