(Review) More Than Words

More Than Words
by Lilly Avalon
Publication Date: October 24, 2014 Amazon: Barnes & Noble:


All of her friends know her as Dana Darling, the clean romance writer. She's never written a steamy novel, not even in her head, but now her publisher needs her to write one. It doesn't appear too difficult at first, but then Dana's lack of sexual knowledge creates writer's block.
That's where her friend Landon comes in. She needs pointers on positions and dirty talk, and he owes her a favor. They agree that it's strictly business and clothes are mandatory, but once they get to work, it's another story entirely... one that's being written between the sheets and not on paper.

*More Than Words is a standalone erotica novella*

This was a short sensual novella. That shows how the simple act of doing touching and dirty words can bring two people.

Dana is a clean writer that is has been tasked to write some smutty romance. Dana is worried about this request because she writes what she knows, and clean romance is all she knows.

The inability to have hot, orgasmic sex is Dana, 100%. This is not all her fault, 98% of this is due to the partners she has had. To write this book, she will need a teacher and get educated on the ways of bedroom or Sexual Positions 101.

Dana asks her writing friend and fellow new author, Landon, to help with the tutoring session(s).

I have to admit that this short, through me for a quick, detailed, thorough read. I like the naivety of Dana and the calm teachings of Landon. If you look really deep this is a hot teacher/student session that gets physical.

The books called More than Words and it is true to it’s title. I found that it wasn’t so much about the written word but about the unspoken words. The beginning teachings of Landon are not receptive to what Dana needs. When he amps up the teaching from a walk through to play action, well we go from words to incomplete incoherent vowels and heavy breathing.

I like Landon’s stamina and gusto. He gives the sexual education that Dana needs and has needed for sometime.

Happy reading.


“This story calls for several scenes involving varying positions.”
I close my eyes and let out a breath. I whisper, “I've only ever position.”
Her jaw drops and a choked sound comes from her throat. “Get out! haven't even been on top?”

I give a shy shrug. “Never had the opportunity.”
“What do you mean 'opportunity'? You just climb on top.”
“Oh good God.” Sometimes I forget how bold Ivy is until she comes right out and states it so plainly. “Are you blushing?” I shake my head no, but touch my cheek to cover it. She tsks me and says, “Honey, you shouldn't be afraid of stepping outside the box.” 
“I'm not. I just never had a guy willing to.”  
“Then you need to find one and get to work.” “You did not just suggest I start hooking up with a guy for research.”
“I didn't, but now that you mention it...”
I smack her arm and laugh. “That'll be the day.” “I'm serious.”

My smile fades away. “Wait, you are?”
“Yeah, why not? Could be good for you,” she says with a shrug. “I don't do sex with no strings.” Not just don't—I can't. I'm not good at separating the two. Sex happens when I feel love, not because I want to have fun. “I don't misbehave.”
“You should. Playing it safe is why you're so scared of writing this book. Being 'good' is boring. Predictable.”
“I don't want to be boring and predictable.”
“Then misbehave,” she says with a grin.
