In The Bedroom of Medusa - Lilith Likes Dirty Words

Title: In the Bedroom of Medusa Year: 2021 Author: Magen Cubed Synopsis:  An ancient monster in the modern-day. A gilded castle with whispered secrets. A peculiar sapphic romance. When Evelyn agrees to become the live-in companion of the secretive Lady Demetria Balaskas, the human finds herself falling for a creature lost to time. Lilith's Notes: I received an ARC of this book. First book I've read by this author. "At that moment, I became anathema." (I was given an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.)

Evelyn will live at Demetria's manor among maids, her days will be her own, and her nights would be to serve her mysterious Mistress. Since it's in the title of the story we all know why we're here. I love this book. It was incredibly hot. The relationship between Evelyn and Demetria

As soon as we scream our first scream we measure our lives in a set of accomplishments and goalposts. Some are more or less set in stone; first day of school, first crush, first car, first date, first death, first time surviving a global pandemic. Others are more unique to an individual; first pet, first marriage, fi

They notice that their windows look directly into the apartment opposite - inviting them to witness the volatile relationship of the attractive couple across the street. But when they attempt to anonymously intercede in their lives, they unwittingly set in motion a chain of events leading to deadly consequences. - Via Letterboxd Lilith's Notes: It's an Amazon Original erotic psycho thriller. How could I not? "Keep watching" Sometimes, if we're good, the stars will align and we're given a gift from the universe. This month is the third anniversary of Lilith Likes to Watch. I had laid out my reviews for September, only to happily rearrange everything because Amazon released an erotic thriller called The Voyeurs. I must have been very good because the universe dropped a the
