“Siren’s Seduction” by Jax Cassidy is a contemporary story with a very lush, dreamy quality. The author’s writing is rich, lyrical, and dripping with sensuality. It’s a softer erotica than most of that found in the market today and brings together an interesting mix of Asian and African-American characters.” —Queue My Review

“According to the book, legend has it that “the lotus closes at night and sinks under water. In the morning it reemerges and blooms again. Thus the flower became a natural symbol of the sun and creation, and rebirth.” In both of these stories the hero and heroines survived a rebirth of love. Though the time periods were very different, the meaning of true love surfaced in each of their hearts. You’ll love the different writing styles and how each relationship was built.” —The Romance Readers Connection

“The Lotus Blossom Chronicles is a book of second chances and rebirth. Both stories featured follow this theme to perfection with the characters going through trials and tribulations and in the end being rebirth mind, body, and spirit. The chemistry and adventure experienced between the characters will leave readers hungry for more. Both stories are great reads! I found myself wanting more to read from both stories towards the end! I recommend The Lotus Blossom Chronicles to all romance lovers.” —APOOO BookClub

“Both of the stories in THE LOTUS BLOSSOM CHRONICLES deal with second chances in life. Authors Jax Cassidy and Simone Harlow both bring these stories to vivid life. We go through the whole gamut of emotions as we find out if these two very wounded couples will heal and have their second chance at life and love.” —ParaNormalRomance


“I enjoyed these three tales of love and second chances from Cassidy Kent. The characters were real, with the strengths and weaknesses found in us all. The strength of character in each of the women, their friendship and camaraderie is great to see. Each of these stories has that turning point where it could go either way, and the choice made will make all the difference in each of their futures. I enjoyed this group of stories a lot. There was laughter at the misadventures of the heroines, there were tears when they were hurting, and that feeling of joy when they got to their individual happy ever afters. I also liked the fact that the cold and cheating exes got theirs, too. The exotic locales were lush and delightful, even with the devastation from the storms in two tales. This collection of stories goes on the keeper shelf to be brought out again and again.”  —Holly, Whipped Cream Reviews

“If only Food Network could come up with a hot reality show like Fighting Chance…Kitchen Stadium from Iron Chef never looked this good…DOLCE & DIANA is a delicious treat from Cassidy Kent that may only be “novella” in length but still fits in all the right places for a damned good romance with some erotic notes to tantalize the taste buds. With contenders like Chance and Diana, it’s never a question as to whether they deserve one another. Like cheese and wine, these two pair up and accessorize one another quite well. And the things they do behind closed doors…on a sailboat…and on a couch….well, there’s the spice that puts the pop in Cassidy Kent’s snappy little story. Yes, waiter, I’ll have your special – Chance Kohler with a side of hot oil, strawberries and chocolate. Do you think Diana would mind?

Diana is dealing with the emotional issues of divorce and trust, while Chance is still reeling from the last contestant’s post-season bids for attention at any cost. It is sweet and sensual and this reader enjoyed it.” —Debbie H., Gotta Write Network

Dear John…
“…These characters are earthy though appealing…Their unions are frequent, coming together with ravishing need and gratifying fulfillment. The exhibitionism is sedate though heightens the corporeal awareness of the story. A hot, fast read, Dear John satisfies this reader’s need for romance and erotic sex.” —Pamela Craft-Jenewein, Gotta Write Network

“…This is a story full of misunderstandings and misdirection done so well that you will keep reading to find out what really happened to the two of them, as well as to enjoy a really good story. It would have been nice, but not necessary, to have a little more of Dane’s background. The other characters are just as real and likeable as Dane and John, making this a story that I will definitely be reading again.” —Maura, Coffee Time Romance
