Manic Readers Alberta, Reviewer, 4.5 Stars
"There is lots of sex between the two women, and between Bryce with each
of the women separately, and with all three of them together. However,
it is the developing relationship, and hero’s and heroines’ journeys
that are important here. The authors have captured the angst and anguish
faced by anyone who flies in the face of conventional marriage and the
resulting isolation they will inevitably feel from everyone in their
lives previous to their ménage.
The story is very good, although the three suffer agonies of indecision before they make their life decision. Love’s Storm is a good read, although it may be troubling for some."
For the Love of Bookends Sheri Vidal, Reviewer, 5 Books
"Yes, there is still hot sex in this story it is a romance after all, but it’s so much more than a sex driven ménage story. It’s a story of true polyamory and done so well that I can see someone I know living it.
I highly recommend this series. I want to shout that everyone needs to read these books. Love is beautiful, but love isn’t easy."
Lois M. 5 Stars
"I give Razor: Love's Storm five stars for it being very well written, cutting edge, and sizzling hot."
"I recommend this book for the
very real emotions, the hot sex, and the glimpse of a how a polyamory
relationship can work. I’m looking forward to the next books in this series,
and until then I’ll probably hit up both of these authors backlists. If they
can make me invest emotionally in this book, I have a feeling I’ll enjoy their
Readers love this provocative BDSM romance!
Pammie wrote: "This story just blew me away!! I found myself being pulled into these characters' lives and accepting
them as is. This is the talent of good authors: to be able to sway the
reader to see their side of a story and become involved in it. The
"hotness" level of this book is above scorching. The sex was amazing,
graphic, and well written. I loved the ending and was delighted to learn
that there would be a series to be written. I highly recommend this
book to anyone who loves a very hot read and great character
Nichelle said: "Margie Church and Kb Cutter did a fantastic job showcasing the emotional
journey Amy, Bryce and Raine embark on in Razor. The characters were
believable and likable. The premise was super hot and the sex scenes
even hotter, but what I truly enjoyed about Razor is how the authors
were able to delve into the layers of the heart with all three
MJ Prater said: "Amy, Bryce, & Raine are three very bewitching charecters that will
have you falling in love with them. This book has everything a erotic
romance reader will want. with a strong story plot that will lead you on
an exploration of friendship, love, romance, marriage, compromise, and
an exciting new relationship! Who needs shades of grey when you can have
a whole rainbow of sensual and sexy with just the right amount of
Dom/sub in one book!
Jenn wrote: "Watching Raine top Bryce is delicious enough, but things heat up even
more as the complexity of their situation unfolds. I won't speak more
to avoid spoilers! But a razor DOES play a role in one of those scenes.
It's also a metaphor that perfectly fits how I felt while reading it:
poised on an edge, not sure how the conclusion would play out. If you
like BDSM, this has enough to fulfill your desires for the D/s dynamic,
but not so much as to alienate those who aren't into pain and
punishment. There's a great balance. I'm excited that this is the
first in the series. I can see more coming for these three and I can't
wait to for what's in store. Highly recommended."
"The author really paid attention to the emotions of her characters and that attention to detail made them vivid and real. This was a gripping and entertaining read but what I really liked was how Ms. Church wrapped up the happily ever after. It was so romantic and complete. Now that's the way to do it." from - honestly, I can't remember if I've ever had a more thorough, thoughtful review."
"All this manly testosterone had me turning page after page. When danger lurks near, Margie Church did a wonderful job of keeping me in suspense. Definitely a recommended read for lovers of the M/M genre. Well done, Margie Church. You did justice with this sequel."
"Although I loved the first story, 'Hard As Teak' I believe this sequel is even better. It's not necessary to read the first one, but in order to fully appreciate the emotional impact of this story, I'd recommend it. The action moves quickly, and, not necessarily in the direction which I thought it would. There are lots of surprises. With the various sub plots, there's something going on at all times; there's little chance of being bored. 'Krewe Daddy' is a great story with something for everyone--love, romance, hot sex, angst, pain, sorrow, and suspense. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would suggest it to anyone who likes romance, non-stop excitement and intrigue. Thanks, Margie, for the wonderful story!"
"I absolutely loved the main characters, Drew and Luis. As if trying to rekindle a "lost" love wasn't difficult enough, add in some crazy gangbangers, and some meddling friends, and its almost a recipe for disaster or... HEA. I really connected with the characters, and I just love Margie's writing style. This book definitely tugged the heartstrings. I don't often shed tears over a book but I did this one! This is a book to read again and again. I would definitely recommend it."
David writes: "KREWE DADDY is deftly and realistically written and packed with sufficient action, drama, intrigue and romance to keep your attention rapt until the very last page--the hallmarks we have come to expect from any Margie Church novel. Along the way, you will encounter something for just about every taste: hot male models, steamy sex (both indoors and out), alligator poaching, a gay wedding, Mardi Gras floats, peanut butter and turkey-bologna sandwiches, sassy drag queens, and fire ants. I look forward to more books in this red hot series."
Darcy writes: "I loved this story! Margie’s previous book “Hard as Teak” was one at the top of my all time favorite book collection, and now I am thrilled to place “Krewe Daddy” right next to it. The story keeps you riveted until the end.
Margie, you’ve done it again. You’ve brought these two men into the light and to our lives of your faithful readers. The wait was well worth it, and to me the story is so beautifully told. I felt so many emotions throughout the story, and you’ve given me more than I ever imagined as a reader. I loved the ebb and flow, and the raw emotions expressed in your stories. I await in eager anticipation for even more of your books. You are simply a wonderful storyteller."
Lauren writes: "I was hooked from the very first page. I'd recommend this book highly for fans of the genre. It's a great M/M romance with some action and suspense thrown in. There is one pretty dramatic action scene just over half way through that left me almost speechless. The plot is engaging, interesting and just pure awesome. And the sex scenes? Well they were hot and well-written, and totally cute in places too. Perfect, really."
Rochelle writes: "This is my favorite book Margie Church has written. It's hot and sexy plus its great story line. I couldn't put it down."
"There's a very interesting scene where Gabe gets a few hours to approach Lily in corporal form. They share one last passionate night. The depth of feeling is stunning.
By the end of Nopeming Shores, the reader feels how Lily has made progress. The reader experiences her hope. It's a well-written book that is sure to delight readers who enjoy stories with inspiring characters trying to find their way again."
Nopeming Shores is a fantastic, emotional, heartbreaking, yet hopeful, character study with a ghost story twist. The characters are well executed, the writing intriguing, and the overall story is completely engrossing. What are you waiting for? Read. This. Novella!!!"
KevaD writes: "Nopeming Shores is a superbly crafted tale sure to enthrall readers. Just have plenty of Kleenex handy. However, it is the masterful infusion of Andrew J Lockhart's unique poetry that takes this book from a satisfied read on your bookshelf to centerpiece on your coffee table in order to share and discuss this novel over tea with your friends. Yeah. This book's that good."
Jenn writes: "It's rare to have a book capture your heart like Nopeming Shores did mine. Margie Church weaves a tale so breathtakingly beautiful it hurts. I knew going in that this was going to be an emotional ride. ...Gabe, as a ghost, trying to shepherd her through on her journey, is the hero, the voice of comfort and reassurance. He's not without his own ghostly turmoil. J. Andrew Lockhart's poetry is skillfully weaved, enhancing and magnifying the emotional impact. Margie has a talent for lush description: the scent of worn clothing, the crack of dried brush underfoot, the whisper of a kiss, are all palpable. ...The power of love, even in death, to inspire hope comes through like a beacon. I would highly, highly recommend this story for anyone looking for a unique, inspirational love story that will definitely stick with you."
J.s. writes: "Beautiful. Haunting. Emotional. This story will stay with you long after you read the last line, and really displays the versatility and amazing emotional pitch that Margie Church lends to her writing. Nopeming Shores, despite its length, is solid competition for Nicholas Sparks' best work. This site doesn't have enough stars to give this heartrending novel its due.
"Margie Church grabs her reader's heartstrings early and doesn't let go while she depicts Lily's conflicted battle to hold on to and let go of Gabe at the same time. J. Andrew Lockhart's beautifully stark poetry plays a magnificent counterpoint to this story of love beyond death. Heartbreaking and yet life-affirming, and if you somehow make it through the rest of the story without tears, have a box of tissues on hand for the final scene at the titular lake. If you buy only one book this year, make it Nopeming Shores. "
Debbie writes: "Wow!!! The Heavens are Smiling down at you!!! This book is Unbelievable... You got me in the lake..(tissues).. This Story & The Poems throughout are so Beautiful... Margie Church you are Truely a GEM.. Bravo!!!! I loved it.. J. Andrew Lockharts poems are Wonderful..."
I loved the black and white combo, and I liked how the author didn’t make any big deals about it.
I liked that the couple both made compromises to be together.
I like a relationship that starts with sex and ends with love.
Clit spanking! There is a lot of that, and I must tell you, I have recently discovered how much fun that is
TwoLips Reviews Tina Brunelle, Reviewer
"The 18th Floor by Margie Church is a fast paced and hotter than sin book. Sebastian and Alexa have some hot and steamy dominance/submission scenes which are really off-the-charts hot and sexy. I love how their love was present even in those scenes. I also like how fierce and independent Alexa is and how protective Sebastian is about her too. I highly recommend this book for those who like a little spice in their romance."
Affaire de Couer Magazine Melody Prater, Reviewer
"Margie Church has given us a hot BDSM story with The18th Floor. It will leave you hot, wet, and needing to reenact scenes from the pages of this fast-paced, steamy, highly sexual story that gives a look into the Dom/BDSM life style. This is well written, and readers will finish feeling well satisfied."
"The 18th Floor provides pure sensual enjoyment for readers who appreciate the finer points of the BDSM lifestyle. Sebastian and Alexa are good together and I enjoyed reading their story. Ms. Church consistently writes seductive and interesting tales and readers can add this to the list."
Love Romances & More Dawn, Reviewer
"I was in a mood to read something a bit different. I got that plus a whole lot more. Margie Church delivers her first foray into the M/M genre with her feet running out of the gate. ...Ms. Church delivers a story that had me on the edge of my seat, eager to find out what will happen next for Kevin and Teak. If you are looking for a hot story with a heart of gold to enjoy that can heat up your night, then I suggest you try HARD AS TEAK. I am hoping Ms. Church comes back to these beloved characters in the future."
"Hard As Teak is the first M/M romance from Margie Church, and she’s written a captivating story of finding one’s self, of embracing who you are without fear. . . . . Hard As Teak has great well rounded characters, each with their own flaws. . . .Amazing love scenes, exactly the way I like them: hot and detailed, nothing left to the imagination. I can’t wait to see what Ms. Church puts out next in the M/M genre."
"Hard as Teak is the first book I’ve read by Margie Church and it definitely won’t be my last. She gave me several hours of enjoyable escapism from my everyday life with some interesting and uniquely written characters and Hard as Teak has found its way onto my keeper shelf."
"Margie breaks the genre conventions and that is what makes her books compelling.
Also, her words, they are poetic, humorous and sexy.
Very sexy. Burning hot.
There is some serious male-male action in the pages of Hard as Teak. Admittedly, I would not like to emulate the sexual activities compellingly described in these pages, but did manage to get the blood flowing!
If you want a poignant sexual coming of age story, with fully textured, compelling characters and poetic words that brilliantly frame not only the rural beauty of the Minnesota wilderness, but the beauty of two people falling in love, while combating inner and outer conflict, then run, not walk to your computer and buy Hard as Teak."
"Margie Church does a grand job of showing the fear, indecision, struggle with who he [Kevin] was becoming and perceived himself to be. The emotions of the character were wonderfully written. There were many emotions that evolved because of the book, there were times where I was nervous, happy, scared and excited. Which is a good thing, because the book held my interest.
"I will definitely look forward to reading more M/M and more books by Margie Church. I recommend this book to other romance book readers who want to experience love through the eyes of two great male characters."
"Ms. Church has a vibrant imagination and she shares the joy of exploring man on man loving enough times that erotic romance readers will find many opportunities for satisfaction.
"What made this entertaining and interesting book better for me was the conflict. I could really sink my teeth into the seething rage, twisted vengeance and spiteful actions of one of the secondary characters. That was incredibly well written and I enjoyed how the author had Kevin handling it. He had class, brains and no nonsense attitude that really impressed me. He was as smooth as James Bond with just as much firmness and discipline in his actions.
"Teak is a good contrast to Kevin's personality and Ms. Church made me believe their relationship is not only going to work but will be around for the long haul. Hard as Teak satisfied the romantic in me and I'm glad I read it."
"I love Margie's lyrical writing style. The story flows well and is quite descriptive. I would enjoy her writing no matter what type of story she wrote. For her first venture into the world of male/male romance, I think she did quite well. I recommend 'Hard as Teak' to anyone who wants to enjoy a well written book, with hot men and even hotter love scenes and, of course, a very happy ending. Thanks Margie!"
Readers Respond to Hard as Teak!
"Margie, I so enjoy the way you write and the flow of the stories are just sort of rhythmic to me. The characters are so easy to fall in love with, and their depth and emotions are made real to the reader I believe. And of course there is the hot sex scenes that are one of a kind and very well plotted out. This book was very hard to put down, and I cried when I reached the end like I always do when its an exceptional story. :*S* Thanks Margie, and you so deserve the awesome reviews." Darcy
"There are some really beautiful and yet steamy love scenes in the book including my favorite that involves whipped cream and starry night! And then there’s the M/M scene! Holy smoking cow!! If you’re a fan of M/M with some BDSM, you won’t want to miss it!!
Ms. Church created a terrifically evil and vindictive nemesis in Dangerous Love. Ladislav Husek is obsessed with not only Wade and Jui but the young woman he personally turned into a vampire, Victoria. To be perfectly honest, obsession seems like a mild word to describe the extent that Husek goes to surround himself with Victoria replacements. The hatred Victoria has for life as a vampire is almost palpable. She’s very creative and single minded in her determination to punish everyone involved.
Overall, Dangerous Love was an exciting ride with several twists and turns, not unlike a roller coaster."
B+ from Katie
"Wet is definitely hot! Although I wished the relationship had more written history to add emotion to a somewhat emotionally charged setting, Wet is the perfect story to read after work with a glass of wine to unwind."
"This was a hot and steamy story at the beginning, but became a tender love story and a story of growth and love and new beginnings as it continued. I enjoyed watching it unfold, and I recommend this to all the real romantics out there."
"I finished Wet...It was so exciting from the beginning to the end...I want more just like it...I LOVED IT!!!!!!!!! Is there a book 2???" Debbie
"I highly recommend this story. The sex scenes are tremendously hot and so well written that you feel like a voyeur transported to witness a short segment of Noah and Reagan's lives. This is a tantalizing story of how sparks can fly and sometimes all it takes is to add a little water ;) " Marguerite
"I loved WET! It's a wonderful story, perfect for a rainy day or a relaxed evening. I loved Noah's and Reagan's journey to happiness; they're very real and I rooted for them all the way through. Very hot too :-) Perfect mix of sexy and romantic. *Two Thumbs Up*" Kathrin
"Church does exceptional work in the characters that she has created along with the passion that they have for each other and the protectiveness he has over her. . . . . The ending of this book will bring you to tears, and leave you with the hope that maybe love conquers all and you just have to wait and pass pain, torture, loneliness—but it will come. Read Love Bites by Margie Church you will not regret it."
" . . . Then I recommend you read this evocative book! Stay tuned for the surprise ending, my mouth dropped open wide when I read it!"
"This is my first book by Margie Church and I loved it. I give Love Bites five flowers of love and a place on my fav bookshelf. Margie served up the perfect HEA, with an unexpected twist."
"I love the temptation theme throughout this story, and how both of the characters deal with it. There are several very surprising twists in this one, and one was something I did not see coming, but when it did, I loved it. The trials that these two endured for their love made the happy ever after all the sweeter. This is a marvelous love story, with some unique twists to a wonderful story."
Half Past Midnight
"...a paranormal read that dares to be a bit different...equal parts action, dark intrigue and sizzling sex."
"Fans of Ms. Church’s Allaire books will want to snap this book up right away and plan to curl up and enjoy it. I made the mistake of starting it when I had work to do…anyway, good book and the work got done…eventually. I only hope there will be a sequel because I miss Wade and Jui already."
"Can't wait to read Dangerous Love. That was a neat twist at the end of Love Bites!! I've read so much I'm not often surprised so that was pretty cool! Jui and Wade are great characters." Stormy Lee
"I've probably read a hundred vampire tales, but the ending of "Love Bites" surprised me. Something different is aways a good thing. Wade is a wonderful, tortured, sexy character, but what sells me are strong female characters, and I found that in the heroine of this story, Jui. I enjoyed "Love Bites" so much, I read it over again right away." Heidi
"Just finished 'Love Bites'! Excellent job Margie. I loved the ending!" Robyn
"LOVED the story Love Bites! finally finished it - one good hot love mess!" Pam
"This book was one sexy read from start to finish! It drew me in with the Vampire genre which when mixed with the erotica romance, kept me invested in their unplanned but so HOT romance. Jui and Wade were one sexy couple that you couldn’t help but root for as they had to fight their feelings but yet give into them as they seemed destined to be. Can’t wait to read the sequel!" Pam U. (Pam was the lucky winner of Love Bites in a recent give-away! It pays to play!)

LASR: Long and Short Reviews Thanks to Violet for an awesome review.
"Ms. Church knows exactly how to write a highly addicting read laced with humor, suspense and one very explosive climax. I highly recommend Awakening Allaire which is a very compelling, keep you on the edge of your seat thriller. This is by far one of the best books I have read and it's one you don't want to miss. A must keep on your bookshelf. This is certainly a book that I will reread several times over."
"I highly recommend Awakening Allaire to anyone who is a fan of thriller type books. Ms. Church writes an extremely well thought out plot with imagery that is that will take your breath away. She has the ability to capture the readers attention and draw you into the story. This was honestly a brilliant piece of work that I was sad to see end. I look forward to the sequel to Awakening Allaire which is called Avenging Allaire. Ms. Church is most certainly an author to watch and has been added to my favorite authors list."
Awakening Allaire by Margie Church is a slow beginner but as with all passion, it is best to build slow. Three people become conflicted in an explosive tour de force. Allarie, her husband Jeff, and the dashing Devon who brings sex to a new level. The clash of these young titans in this heated novel dominates the character development: strong and personal.The sex plays upon the pages in shameless, orgasmic,ecstasy bringing the novel to dramatic climax.
"If there is one eBook read I could recommend is Class Act Book debut author Margie Church's Awakening Alliare with its gritty hot romantic suspense dishing up murder and mayhem with larger-than-life characters to root for. White-knuckled suspense and edge-of-your-seat action combined with sizzling romance that will have you on pins and needles to the very end."
1st Turning Point Crystal Adkins reviews Awakening Allaire's trailer and gives it 4 Parrots out of 5! A wonderful rating for my first effort. Read the review!
Jennifer from Michele 'n Jeff's Reviews 3.5 Kisses! "The book...has more turns and twist in the plot, I couldn’t stop reading. Just when things are going great, and fairytale ending is in order, the plot thickens, and everything you thought before has suddenly ballooned, to a tangled mess I never saw coming."
"I was extremely impressed at the excellent plot, character development and overall smooth writing style in this book. Actually I have found excellent quality of writing and presentation in the seven or so Class Act Books that I have read and I think this publishing group does a great job of putting out top quality books. Kudos to Class Act and Ms. Church for a job well done! If you like top notch romantic suspense and can handle a bit of explicit sexual content then you would truly enjoy this book!"
