Series Review: Monsters in Hollywood by Lila DuBois

Series Summary: When monsters need a makeover, they head for the one place that can make it happen: Hollywood.

Before we go any further, I need to bring an old friend out of retirement:

These are seriously scandalous books that included a lot of sexual content (and I do mean a lot) of a quantity and nature that may not appeal to everyone.  The synopses and product warnings don't pull any punches so ye be warned.

With that said, on to the series!

Book 1:
Lights...Camera...Monsters by Lila DuBois- Luke is desperate to save his people. A lifetime of sneaking in to human houses and watching movies has convinced him that if he can make a great movie about monsters, humanity will change its opinion of them. With his friends at his side, all in shiny new human bodies, Luke heads for Tinsel Town.

A rising Hollywood producer, all-business Lena knows a good story when she sees it. Luke? He’s just another amateur who wants to get famous. But Luke’s too gorgeous to pass up. And there’s something vulnerable about him that leads her to throw caution to the wind and invite him to dinner.

One night of incredible sex later, Lena wakes up next to the surprise of her life. She’s sleeping next to a monster. Literally.

Appearances aside, she finds herself wanting to help Luke save his people. But they’ve got more to worry about than just human prejudice.

Some of the monsters would rather stay in the closet—and to make them all stay there, they’re willing to kill.

Warning, this title contains the following: multiple orgasms, spanking, misuse of kitchen utensils and sex with monsters.

Quickie Review:  Oh hai this first book counts for the Show Me the Free challenge! This is a short and spicy introduction to a series that isn't afraid to go off the beaten path.  Micheal and Lena are a cute couple and they certainly know how to light the sheets on fire.  The idea of monsters living in secret and being close to extinction coupled with the love affair with the movies and all the work and effort that goes into them made this a unique and interesting story.  Seriously though, I will never look at a kitchen spoon ever again.  Adults only people!

Book 2:
My Fair Monster by Lila DuBois-
She agreed to everything but sex. She hadn't counted on his monstrous creativity-
Since the day three incredibly hot men in disguise walk into her office and proved Monsters are real, intrepid screenwriter Jane Darby is obsessed with one task: to give the creatures a mythical makeover by writing a revolutionary, blockbuster screenplay. Now if only she can get over her own fear-and get the closed-mouth Michael to talk about his people.

Michael is fascinated by the demur and docile Jane, whose efforts to hold him at arm-s length hide an untapped sexual passion-a beast within her waiting to be set free. There-s only one way to get under her lovely skin: strike a bargain.

For one week, she agrees to let him do anything, anything, he wants. But Jane-s got conditions. First, no actual sex. Second, she has to enjoy it.

Jane's not really worried. What can happen if he sticks to the bargain? After all, she-s not really turned on by the idea of Michael tying her down. Or bending her over his knee. Or-
Warning: This title contains hot sex, spanking, ice, light bondage, anatomically dubious positions and misuse of an electric toothbrush.

Quickie Review: Good gracious!   This second installment takes the spice from the first book and ramps it up, yet has a really sweet ending all the same.  The story of the development of the plot of the movie the characters are making to help change people's perceptions of the monsters only adds to the story.  Lock up your toothbrushes!

Book 3:

Gone With the Monster by Lila DuBois- Runako has good reason to distrust humans. His sister's murder taught him it's safer to keep his Monster form under wraps. Now comes word that a woman is making a movie that will supposedly "help" his people. He's not sure about that, but one thing is sure…Margo is too beautiful to be ignored.

Presented with the opportunity to use his people's Captive Caves—a secluded mountain fortress designed to hold hapless, tasty humans prisoner—Runako knows exactly whom he wants to star in his ultimate fantasy.

Margo knows exactly what she wants and how to get it. At least where her career is concerned. Runako is just the kind of bad boy with whom she'd like to heat up her nights. In a land of skinny blondes, though, a hottie like him would never notice her lush, Latin curves.

No one is more surprised when she finds out his version of "wooing" includes kidnapping. Forced to stand before him in chains, her paper-thin confidence is burning up fast in the heat of his desire. And when it turns out she can identify his sister's murderers, they both must decide where their loyalties lie...

Warning: This title contains light bondage, spanking, anal play, sex with a Monster and misuse of home decor.

Quickie Review:  In the most serious of the series so far, we get to see a sort of villain from the first book, Runako, not only firmly weigh in on the side of the good guys, but get his own happily ever after too!  We learn more about the monster culture and the things they hold dear in this book, and we get to learn new uses for home decor.  A trip to Pier 1 will seriously never be the same people.  We also meet some new characters who will hopefully make appearances in future books (book four is currently being written.)

The fact that you can have the entire series for less than ten dollars in Kindle format certainly doesn't hurt things either.  This series is definitely not for everyone or for folks who aren't into erotic paranormal romance, but if you're looking for something different then you'll certainly get that here.

Happy Friday everyone!
