UPSIDE DOWN ON VALENTINE’S DAY

1st Anniversary

THANK YOU SO MUCH. You have turned ‘UPSIDE DOWN’ into a best-seller. Today, FEB 14th 2015, we are celebrating ONE YEAR of its release and it has never left the list of 100 Best Sellers on Amazon US Lesbian Fiction Store. You have even graced it with some awesome sales putting my first-ever novel right up in the #1 position for many weeks throughout the year. It’s also doing very well on other Amazon marketplaces.
It’s rewarding to know I have done something right in my first attempt at writing a novel, as many of the readers have put it – thank you, again.
In a fiercely competitive industry such as publishing, where more than 7 million books try to attract readers every day, an Indie Author without an advertising budget like myself counts on writing a good story and having awesome readers comment on them. I have been blessed with an excellent audience. I keep working on my writing abilities. ALWAYS! LoL
Have a great Valentine’s Weekend, everyone!

WHAT SOME PROFESSIONAL REVIEWERS SAID ABOUT UPSIDE DOWN:
4.5/5 stars Better than Fifty Shades!
I’m not a great fan of the erotica genre, so when author Liz Gavin asked me to read and review this book my initial reaction was to decline. Apart from one or two free books, along with the disappointing Fifty Shades trilogy, I’ve not read many books of this type and wondered whether my indifference to the genre would have a negative effect on my review of Upside Down.Despite my initial scepticism, I found likeable characters and an interesting plot inside the pages. Protagonist Carol is a smart, successful, sexy businesswoman who has a sexual agreement with her assistant, Mark, and appears to know exactly what she wants…or does she?

Enter attractive new recruit Cindy, who is ruthless in getting her own way. As the tale unfolds, we discover how these two powerful women strive to take charge… until emotions get in the way.

I enjoyed the story, the strong female characters (I can’t abide simpering females!) and the rather surprising ending. Yes, there’s a lot of graphic sex scenes, but they work within the storyline. At no point did I roll my eyes and skim yet another sexual encounter, as I’ve done with every other book I’ve attempted to read in this genre. I’m really impressed with Liz Gavin’s writing and look forward to reading more of her work. 4.5/5

4.5 Stars – Great book!
Wow… That’s all I have in my mind when I finished this book.Carol is a busy woman running her own business with her submissive man candy that she works with. She thinks everything is just as she wants. Has a way to work off her stress, a carefree sexual partner that expects nothing more from her but the sex.

Until he reveals that he is in love with her. She has issues with commitment and it’s the last thing she wants to hear from Mark.

At the same time she is having unusual feelings and interactions with the new receptionist, Cindy. She can’t figure out if she is being hit on or if her head is playing games with her. Given time, and some of her attention, Carol figures out that Cindy is indeed attempting to slowly seduce her. What to do about it though? After an intense (and hot) scene in the en suite bathroom off her office, Carol is more confused than ever.

There is a few twists and turns, and although I can’t say they were unforeseen as I think most people would do semi-similar things if put into the same situation, this book is a PAGE TURNER. I couldn’t put it down. I absolutely loved it.

Careful though.. You might need a change of panties and sheets and even a new coat of pain because this is a scorcher. There is M/F, F/F and M/F/F scenes. Add in a touch of BDSM too.

The characters were real, flawed and easy to relate to. I absolutely adored Carol and her struggles with trying to decide what she was going to do. Would she pick Mark or would she pick Carol or is it possible for the three of them to make a go of an unusual situation?

The only reason this isn’t a five star book to me was there were a few editing errors along the way and I didn’t necessarily care for Carol’s parents excuses for their absence. I didn’t believe that it would cause them to react the way they did. Neither was such a big thing that I couldn’t get past them and love the book.

I can’t wait to pick up more work from this author as I have no doubt it will be equally as good!

I was given this in return for an honest review for Inked Rainbow Reads.
