Evelyn Reads Zero Gravity: Anna’s Affair

Zero Gravity: Anna’s Affair by author T.J. Conway is out of this world! This is a story about a lovers in space, and in one case an orgasm aided by a rocket sized vibrator.

It is clear that the author took a lot of time and care to research the subject. For me, that did a lot of lend credibility to the story, which in turn made it a hotter read. While a quick and easy read, this story offers more than just sex scenes. If you were ever curious about having sex in low Earth orbit, then this book is for you!

Highly recommended!

Evelyn Reads Blood Drops

Blood Drops by author W.B. Welch is more than just a collection of horror stories. Each take something familiar and adds just enough distilled horror to leave an impression lingering on your mind.

This book is a quick read, and features chapters that are of varying lengths. I found that the one to two page stories had the most impact overall. Every chapter is just the right length to have an effect, be it by leaving me stunned or looking over my shoulder just in case. This author has really mastered the art of prose!

I highly recommend this book, and look forward to reading new works from this author.

Evelyn Reads the Link Between Us

The post apocalyptic genre is a bit overplayed at times, especially if your catalyst involves zombies, disease, or a devastating war. The Link Between Us: Managing the Apocalypse by C.J. Boyle takes this tired premise and adds a new twist.

This book starts out innocently enough. An accidental discovery about the origins of humanity ends up spreading a mutagenic pathogen that changes half the population. From that point on, it becomes clear that something will go wrong!

Sure enough, things do go sideways, and soon you get to know a cadre of fleshed out characters in the quest to survive. I enjoyed being there from day one, to witness  these imperfect beings struggle to survive. That imperfection after all what makes them human.

The story is fast paced, well thought out, and filled with character development. You will get to know them, love them, and may even cry when things go wrong!

I look forward to reading more from this author in the near future.
