A Thin Line -Review
One of the great things about being apart of the writing community online, is working virtually, elbow to elbow with some awesome authors. Emma Hillman being one I want to spotlight today. She's an erotica author that I have the great pleasure of working with on the Coffee Fueled Erotica blog.
I read her sexy novella, A Thin Line and just fell in love with Kate and Jace's story. Thought I might share with you, my thoughts.

Publisher: Excessica Publishing
Kate finds herself locked up in her apartment building’s laundry room. It’s the middle of the night and there’s a man with her. Which would be the great start of a horror movie, except this is real and thankfully the man isn’t that bad. Actually, he’s quite nice. Oh, and hot. He’s a neighbor she’s seen a few times, the playboy with the golden looks. And as they find themselves sitting increasingly closer in an effort not to freeze to death, hands bump into parts of her body that haven’t been touched in years.
It could have stopped at that: one night of pleasure, albeit in a weird location. Except it doesn’t. Even though she knows Jace has another girlfriend, she still opens her door to him every night. He is addictive. And sometimes, he’s even nice. But what happens when the drama finally takes its toll and she bars her door to him?
I just loved this story! It's a naughty little liaison turns into so much more.
The way it starts out, you think it's just going to be a non-stop sexathon. Not that it isn't, but there is a lot more to the story than just good sex. Kate was such a great character. She was "real." I liked that the author didn't make her some skinny supermodel. She had real, deep emotion that made her a person that we all can relate to. She wanted to be loved. Really loved, not just used.
Jace was hot both in and out of the bedroom, but he wasn't exactly available, though he certainly made him self seem that way every night for Kate. I'll admit, I hated Jace for the first half of the story. I was right there with Kate, on the other side of the door, practically screaming "Don't let Jace in," at the middle of the story. I felt so bad for her. Kate was a good girl. She wanted love not use.
Once I learned that Jace had his reasons, I started to like him a bit more but was wary of if he would really do the right thing. The end was perfect. The phone call break up in the elevator just solidified my feelings for him and when he told he dad to tell Liz sorry I was cheering!
This was a wonderful story and I am looking forward to more reads from Mrs. Hillman.
