Review: JUST ONCE by L.M. Mountford

Title; Just Once

Series: Just Friends

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Publication Date: January 16, 2019

They were the very poster children for the boy and girl next door, if a couple of streets apart. Friends for longer than forever. They’d walked to school together. He’d protected her from the bullies when they teased her about her glasses. She’d tended to his cuts and bruises when he fell. He pushed her to try new things. She snuck looks at him when he wasn’t looking. All her life, Faye had loved Terry, but he was oblivious. He's her best friend, her closest friend, but he's oblivious and now he has a Girlfriend. All day long, she has to watch them together and it's killing her. She wants him, all of him, but he's taken. So, instead, she wants one night. Just once, one night, between friends. One night, just once...

Rating ★★★

This was a really quick and steamy read. It became really steamy once Faye made her move on Terry, that is. The way that the story jumped from one POV to another, gave you a chance to see that the attraction was definitely not one sided. They both wanted each other so bad that once they came together there was no holding back.

I liked this story, so don't let the rating that I gave give you the wrong idea. I only wish that theor story wasnt broken up into little parts. I would have loved to have been able to go right into the next part without having to go into another book.

Rating ★★★

Loved the cover. Figured I’d love the book. Unfortunately it just wasn’t for me. It’s just a short little story of pretty much pure porn. I openly cringed while reading, “please sir can I have some more”. I’m sure some will love it, just not me.

Rating ★★★★

Short read with a sexy as hell scene. Really enjoyed it.

Rating ★★★★★

This is my first book by L.M Mountford and I loved it. It was a shorty story but you got the feel on the characters. We get a look into Terry and Faye’s life. I can’t wait to read more books from this author. It was a steamy book that’s for sure!

Rating ★★★

Another wham-bam-thank you ma’am. I’m not kidding either. The story starts out great and then goes from 0-100 in just a few sentences. There’s not much of a REASONABLE clear background between Faye and Terry. I can say that there is potential though, with a singular past event that should’ve gotten more detailed. I would’ve liked to have known the in the moment reactions and how it affected them both rather than a paragraph of “oh this is what happened then and immediately right after”. I hope it goes in to greater detail when the main book is released.

I’m A self-confessed Tiger fanatic called L.M. Mountford and an erotica author trying to break into dark romance, historical action, and sci-fi/ fantasy. Honestly, though, I’m interested in anything plot that involves sex and violence. They make up some of the greatest stories in my opinion. A story is like any portrait, it needs to be made up of many colours, but make sure it has these two and you’re bound to be a success.

If you can’t already tell, I’m English (Not British!).

When I was in school, I wanted to be an actor. I gave that up after a Final ‘E’ grade in GCSE Drama. That was a knock as everyone told me I was great. However, before that and now, my dream is to be a successful author. Well, I may be an author but I doubt I’ll ever be successful, so I largely write for the love and challenge of it.

I wrote my first story when I was 14/15. A fanfiction story that I posted online. I’m something of a anime aficionado you see, and like any little boy, my mind had a tendency to wander. After that, it wasn’t long before I moved into the erotica genre, after all, what is it a boy that age thinks about, and I have been in the genre ever since.

Although I’d never really thought about self-publishing, it occurred to me when I was 21 after running across the kindle section of Amazon and seeing how many short stories had been published and were selling. It was something of an eye-opener. Until then, I’d thought KDP was for novels. Shortly after, I wrote and published Sweet Temptations: The Babysitter. I’d thought that would be the hard part, but after publishing, I came to realise it was only the beginning. Not only that, but I was woefully unprepared.
