Great Review of Eight Ball

I just love this review of Eight Ball. Makes me want to whip up another naughty little story right now.

Eight Ball by Cat Lovington

Eight Ball by Cat Lovington
Publisher: Carnal Passions
Genre: Contemporary
Length: Short Story (19 pgs)
Other: M/F
Rating: 4 Cherries
Review by Zinnia (Whipped Cream Erotic Romance Reviews)

Venus, a beautiful, exotic late-night customer at a local bar teaches Jason the finer points of an after-hours game she calls “strip-pool”, a sexy variation of the pool game, Eight Ball. In Venus’ version, the shooters must call their shots, but if they miss, must remove an article of clothing. As the game progresses, sparks fly and heat rises to the boiling point when winner takes all.

Jason is the fill-in bartender on the off nights in Chubb's Bar and Grill. He's closing for the night when minutes before he can lock the outer door, a final customer arrives.

He's not nearly as unhappy as the occasion suggests when the beautiful, late-night customer introduces herself as Venus, and invites him to play a game of eight ball with her--a special kind of eight ball…she calls it strip eight ball--get the picture?

The story is short, hot, and fun. The tag at the end just makes it more fun, but I can't tell you what it is, you'll just have to read Eight Ball and find out for yourself.

You won't regret buying this one, will probably read it more than once, and I'll bet you tell a few of your own friends about it. I am off to find another Cat Lovington story. This is a fun read--enjoy.

A Once in a Life Time Experience

My head is still reeling from our trip to Hollywood for the premiere of the movie, "Paper Heart." It's one of the most exciting experiences I've ever had. Actually, it was right up there on my thrill-0-meter with getting married and giving birth to my son.

How many times does one get invited to a Hollywood movie premiere and actually appear in the film? Well, so far it's only once for me, and it was more fun than I've had in a long time. I'm not sure why my husband and I got picked, but I'm really glad we did. Maybe it's because I'm a romance writer and the film is about a young woman's quest to find out if there is really such a thing as "true love." Or, maybe it's because my husband and I have been married for a very long time and not only continue to be in love, but even better, we still like each other.

At the premiere, we got to walk the red carpet, pose for pictures and sign autographs. To make matters even better, as if that's possible, we really enjoyed the movie. When the film crew came to our home in New Mexico to film our interview over a year ago, we had no idea what the movie was all about. Much to our delight, it turned out to be a very enjoyable and well done movie. It won an award at the Sundance Film Festival and got very positive reviews all the way around. Roger Ebert gave it a great review and three stars.

If you want to see a charming movie that will make you laugh and cry, go see "Paper Heart." It's in limited release right now, but will be shown in more theaters next week. It stars Charlyne Yi and Michael Cera and they were both wonderful.
