This is my first book from this author and to be honest I have mixed feelings about it. I'm new to reading erotic fiction and this is only the second book I've read.

When I first started reading I was really disappointed as I wasn't very keen on the writing style because it didn't seem to flow very well. It felt quite disjointed. Also, I found that the erotica was quite tame and not as steamy as the last book I read so in this respect I was definitely disappointed. The story starts with a sexy note from the library suggestion box and introduces you to the lead characters Gwen and Professor Hottie and for me personally I felt like it was taking too long for the story to build up and get anywhere. In parts it seemed like it had so much promise to make it all a bit more exciting but more often than not I found the book very frustrating.

However, on the positive I quickly got used to the style of writing and the story became quite gripping. It wasn't perfect or as steamy as I'd hoped for but I'm glad I persevered. If you are looking for a gripping plot this is your book but if you want something that pushes the boundaries a bit and widens the eyes then this book probably isn't for you as like another reviewer says it is mildly erotic.

All in all I probably won't buy anymore erotic fiction from this author as it just didn't really tick enough boxes for me but definitely a gripping storyline.

Format: Paperback
Portia da Costa never fails to deliver a damn good romp-fest in her books, so I expected nothing less from In Too Deep. What I wasn't expecting, however, was for it to be so good that it overtook one of her previous novels to become my favourite! But it did! In Too Deep is officially my favourite of Portia's book - a fantastic erotic romance.

The novel is the tale of librarian Gwendolyne Price. One of her regular tasks is to empty the suggestion box in the library and make sure the suggestions are read and actioned, if necessary. However, one day, Gwen finds a letter to her in the box. It is an indecent proposal... a mystery man is sending her sexy prose and it appears he'd like to action his own suggestions! His ideas are outrageous, but arouse Gwendolyne none the less. The writer seems to have reached into her head and stolen her thoughts.

The letters alone are enough to spin Gwen's erotic imagination out of control. It doesn't help that a celebrity is currently making use of the library to do some research... a very hot celebrity. Gwen has had a crush on Daniel Brewster for quite some time now and is delighted that she now gets to ogle him as he spends time in the building where she works. Daniel and Gwendolyne embark on a friendship which has erotic intent bubbling away under the surface, particularly when Gwen decides she can trust Daniel enough to tell him what has been going on between her and her mystery correspondent.

It's clear that Daniel, too, is aroused by the suggestions the mystery author is making. The pair continue their flirtation, and after a while, Gwendolyne begins to wonder whether Daniel might be the mystery man. He's got easy enough access to the suggestion box, he sees her every day, and he's as hot as hell!

Format: Paperback
I was instantly gripped by the 'mysterious messages from a stranger' device. He seems to be able to read Gwendolyne's mind - especially her sexual fantasies.

She is a very likeable heroine. Not some glamorous young 'stunna', but a somewhat 'well-padded' lady who is a bit 'richer in years'. Gwendolyne isn't financially rich, yet is being hassled by her ghastly 'ex' for money she can ill afford. It's no wonder that on the first evening we meet her she seeks consolation in three 'indulgences': a cake, a glass of wine and masturbation. She's a normal woman who just wants to be valued and appreciated - and no one seems to want to do that.

Then 'Professor Hottie' enters her library and her life. He's an engagingly mysterious character - is Daniel just the polite and highly civilised academic - or is he the decidedly sexually adventurous 'Nemesis'?

Unlike a lot of fictional 'sex romps', the 'love scenes' are described with style and sensitivity. The descriptions of Gwendolyne's orgasms - especially how they 'take her out of herself' - are some of the finest I've read.

I sympathize with the reviewer who is disturbed by sadism - I don't like that either (despite my moniker). But in this case I reckon it's more play-acting than the full-blown sordid thing.

Plus the author has a great sense of the absurd (something usually sadly lacking in erotic fiction). Her account of the Chief Librarian nearly catching Gwendolyne and the Prof when she's just performed fellatio on him in the bookstacks is wildly funny.

Very well done, Portia!

I bought this novel based on the strength of the other reviews on here and I'm pleased to say that they weren't wrong- as a first time Costa reader, I *loved* this and I'll certainly be dipping my toe into some of her other books ASAP.

As a long time reader of raunchy novels, I have to say that this is definitely one of the best I've came across so far. I couldn't put it down, though just a warning: this isn't the kind of thing you should be reading on public transport! The scenes are all set very well and there's something of a plot too- not just mindless sex, though the descriptions of *that* are admittedly riveting.

A brief summary: Librarian Gwen comes across as rather prim and proper on the outside, but when the anonymous 'Nemesis' starts leaving naughty notes for her in the suggestions box, a new side to her is unleashed. Accompanied by the sexy resident 'Professor Hottie' Gwen begins trying out the suggestions and enters a whole new level of fun, erotic excitement...

If you haven't tried erotic romance before and are wanting a full length novel to start off with then this is the book for you- but if you aren't sure if this will float your boat or not, then I'd recommend you try one of the Black Lace 'Quickies' books first, before moving onto something like this. It's bold, brashy and in your face, though admittedly will not be everyone's cup of tea!
