The Erotic Adventures of Amy and Troy by Red Phoenix

Goodreads Rating: 3 stars

Actual Rating: 3.5 stars

 

I want to start out by saying I LOVE Red Phoenix. If you want a great, erotic read, I ALWAYS recommend Red Phoenix. I believe The Erotic Adventures of Amy and Troy may be among her first novelettes (I read them all together in one book). Being a lover of Red Phoenix, it is easy to tell this is some of her earlier work.

When I first purchased this book, I was under the impression that it would be Amy and Troy’s erotic adventures together much like Brie and Sir’s adventures, however, I was disappointed to learn that it was actually about to people who love each other, but life seems to prevent them from being together. The Erotic Adventures are Amy and Troy’s separate adventures with various partners and the occasional chapter of Amy and Troy together.

Many of Amy’s erotic adventures left me needing a cold shower to cool down! They were spicy and erotic for sure. I wish the sexual relationship between Amy and Troy were as hot as their exploits. You can love someone passionately and have some heat in the bedroom. My other major complaint is that on the back of the cover it states “Can love survive the day Amy loses all her memories of her longtime love Troy Dawson?” The last 40 pages (of 267 pages) were about the incident which caused Amy to lose her memories. I felt that the scenes with Brad and New Troy were rushed but it was also easy to tell they were being deceptive in their information they were giving. It could have been made more clear that they were trying to win her over in her current state. And while I am at it, shame on them for doing that to Amy!!! I was excited to get a glimpse into the early Brad Anderson, and he was delicious in this story as he is in the Submission series. I do wish that he had bigger roles, or longer part in the story. For as much sex and story line as there was, some of the relationships were not as developed and it could be confusing. Especially feelings that were being tossed around.

At the end of the day, I did enjoy this book and read it fairly quickly. There were parts that made me smile, happy, wanted to punch someone, and again happy. My biggest wish is that it focused more on Amy and Troy together and not separate.

  1. Thank you for the review! You are quite right, this was my very first erotic tale. I was trying to figure out how to self publish and wrote this series of stories about Amy and Troy to experiment with the process. But here’s the thing…I had so much fun that I continued to write erotica under the pen name Red Phoenix. So many people loved Brad Anderson and begged for more. Their enthusiasm gave me the courage to write another series that centered around BDSM which would come to be known as the Brie series. However, fans wanted him to have a HEA so I decided to write him into the new series (Brie’s Submission) to their delight.

    In Amy, we meet him when he was younger, determined and serious, and willing to compromise himself because of his love of Amy.

    The series of scenes played out in this book were either things I had done or were things I fantasized about. I didn’t expect to write any more. Silly me… ~Red Phoenix
