Friends & Acquaintances

This page is to give you - the reader - more information about the Friends & Acquaintances series.

All three in this series are light-hearted romantic comedy type stories looking at the world of erotic romances. All books are available to buy in various formats including PDF from the publisher's website: Bookstrand or on Amazon

The three books in this series are:

Just Good Friends (Sam discovers Jessie's secret stash of erotic romances and persuades her to enact scenes from them and they gradually discover they are more than just good friends).

Titbits: The shy part of Jessie was very much me in my younger days. I, too, wear glasses and love sci-fi.

Review on MER reviews: "This is a nice story."

 Friendly Seduction (Matt enlists Lissa's help when his editor tells him to write more sex into his story and he uses his new book as a way of seducing Lissa by asking her to help him with certain sex scenes).

Titbits: Lissa is named after one of my best friends. The Champagne Friday evenings do exist - I pilfered the name from a friend's group.

Review on Goodreads: "This book is laced through and through with humor, specifically humor about the very genre this book represents! I can't remember when I've laughed so hard while reading an erotic romance. The banter the characters indulge in and the raw/hot analysis of romantic clichés they "study" are a veritable feast for the senses and the imagination."

Review on Coffee Time Romance: "I loved, loved, LOVED Friendly Seduction! At times I found myself sighing because of the pure pleasure Matt took in discovering Lissa's body. Other times, Ms. Denys had me laughing so hard at the less-than-stellar sexy performances that the words seemed to be jumping around on my eBook Reader. Reading this book was such a pleasure and I enjoyed each erotic encounter, whether it was pure sexual or had the humorous scenarios that made me fall in love with this tale. I want to read more by this author and I can only hope that her other stories will grip me from the getgo like this one has."

Friend or Foe (Gina is at loggerheads with colleague Dan but when her first erotic romance is published and he finds out he teases her mercilessly. But Gina is the queen of insults. However, he becomes interested in her writing and the teases turns to playful banter as he helps her through the trials and tribulations of getting published in more ways than one).

Titbits: There are various items of real life I have included in this story including the dog (and the story relating to the freezer), several first and surnames belong to friends, and the incident with the revoluting vegetarians actually happened!

Review on MER: "Wonderful book. Hate to see the series end."

The characters in this series cross-over with those in the Doms & Acquaintances series (which are more intense BDSM stories). Each series can be read by itself but they are written chronologically - Friends 1, Doms 1, Friends 2 and so on so if you want to find out more about a particular character you would be better off reading them in that order.

The entire Friends & Acquaintances series is now available on in print in one book. Hopefully it will come out on in due course.

As promised here is the timeline for the stories from Just Good Friends through to the last one in the 'Doms' series. The colour indicates the timespan for that particular book.
