 Today's Amazing Reader being interviewed is 
Rachel from

Alternative Name

And Now

First sex scene you remember reading?

~ I don’t remember what the book was called, but I remember it was a historical romance. This was a few years ago and I’d only just started to get into reading. I’d read mostly YA and this was one of the first adult books I’d picked up. I didn’t even know there could be sex in books....but let me tell you....I sure knew after that book ;)

A go to author when you are looking for some hot sex scenes?
Lover Unleashed (Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 9)

~ I haven’t read that many erotic authors, seeing as I read a lot of YA, which let’s face YA, but I love anything by Gena Showalter, J.R Ward, Sherrilyn Kenyon and Larissa Ione. Anything these gals write is golden and is guaranteed to get my blood pumping.

A book you read recently that you literally wanted a fan or an ice pack to cool you down from?

~Honestly, nothing I can really think of right now L I’ve been reading a lot of YA lately and all the PNR book’s I’ve read lately haven’t blown me away.

What are some of the most memorable sex scenes you've read?
A Witch's Beauty

~ I loved the sex scene in Joey W. Hills A Witch’s Beauty were David and Mena are first intimate. It’s Mena’s first time and it’s such a great moment between the two, plus, I think it was pretty hot. Oh, and the scene in A Darkest Passion by Gena Showalter where Aeron has sex with Olivia for the first time. Again she’s losing her virginity, he’s taking her from behind and she’s supposed to be an angel. Granted she’s fallen, but angel, fallen or otherwise should act like that.

One of your favourite couples to read about when they are getting it on?

~Zsadist and Bella from Lover Awakened, Mena and David from A Witch’s Beauty, Sabin and Qwen from The Darkest Whisper, Aeron and Olivia from The Darkest Passion, Vishous and Jane from Lover Unbound...and a few more J

One of the most shocking sex scene moments (did that just happen moments) you've read?

~ I think I’ve mentioned this before, but I hate any sex scenes where a man goes down on a woman and then kisses her afterwards. It’s the whole; “she can taste herself on him” that always grosses me out and makes me wonder why that turns people on?

Amber- hahaha oh I so so so so agree!!

When reading paranormal books, what is the weirdest thing that turned you on?
A Mermaid's Kiss (Berkley Sensation)

~ It was in another Joey W Hill book, A Mermaids Kiss. The hero and heroine have sex when he’s in human form and she’s in mermaid form. I remember thinking, “Wow, how can anyone normal be thinking this is hot when technically she’s still half fish right now?

Out of the other characters in a book (not the main guy/girl) who really gets your blood boiling?

~Hmmm, do you mean in general or specifically? In general, I guess I always tend to go for the sexy side characters, the ones who just ooze sex and you want to know more about them. The ones whose little quips and comments are so scandalous and tantalizing. Specifically, I have a thing for Adrian in Richelle Mead’s VA and William from Gena Showalter’s Lords of The Underworld. Love those guys!

One sex scene you wish you could have been the main character in.

~Hmmm, I don’t know off the top of my head. Any with the sexy book men I’m crushing on at the moment I guess, lol.

Worst sex scene you ever read.

~Can’t think of any in particular, but any where the writing is bad. Its one thing to write in a crude way, but when the actual writing and the words are bad, then it takes away from the actual act of sex to me.

Sex scene that embarrassed you.

~ Ick, I started reading a book once where a father slept with his daughter. That was just wrong on so many levels....sure got rid of that book in a hurry. I don’t like anything like all.....and can’t stomach the rest of a book after that kind of scene.

Sex that should have never happened.

~Ditto to above answer ^^^^

Do you think sex scenes in a specific book were unrealistic?

~This isn’t exactly the same thing, but I think any sex scene where the main characters have sex without knowing one another is unrealistic. I mean, hello? “Sure, I don’t know you, I barely know your name, and I’ve only met you once, maybe twice in my life for a few short moments, but what the hell....lets jump into bed together and have crazy, passionate sex.” Yeah. I’m sorry, but that’s just not realistic to me.

If you could go to a strip club and see any book characters strip who would you pick?
Acheron (Dark-Hunter, Book 12)

~Oooh, oooh. I know this one, I know this one. I was thinking about it the other day when I read someone else’s answer.....Acheron Parthenopaeus! What I wouldn’t give to see Ash from Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Dark Hunter strip. *sigh* But only in my dreams I guess *wink*

Thanks so much Rachel! I loved loved your answers, it was tempting to put my thoughts under lots of them but I thought I should wait for the comments!lol. And everyone should go check her out!!


  1. The one book you mention with the father and daughter is just gross. I once watched a lifetime movie that had that in it and I almost died! Who the hell would write something like that??

  2. Thanks so much for having me on the blog guys, it was so much fun! LOL! I'm glad you liked my answers. I tried to be as honest as I could be =D

  3. I am a J.R. Ward maniac, her sex scenes are always so well written.
    I agree about the father and daughter thing... ew ew ew
