About Me

My name is Heather and I love smut, dogs & sarcasm. My husband supports my insanity [mostly] and while I currently live on the East Coast, The Plan may have me heading out west…stay tuned. This blog is my little piece of internet heaven: uncensored. I curse. Sometimes a lot. You’ve been forewarned 😉

I have two blog features:

FIRST – #DrunkReading | I read, drink & tweet out my thoughts. The next morning I’ll write a hangover review. I do not drunk read ARCs (unless you want me to).

SECOND – LiteralPleasure | OWMS’ Smut & Sex Toy Pairing Guide. Here, I pair a sex toy with a smut novel for your one-handed reading pleasure and review the sex toy. If you’d like to send me a sex toy for review, please email me at OWMyshelf@gmail.com.

What Kinds of Romance Genres Do I Like?


Contemporary, NA, erotica, BDSM, suspense, paranormal, dark & political.

Soft limits:

historical, time travel, crime syndicates / kidnap to love / illegal activity

Of course, there’s always an exception – i.e. I’m obsessed with Outlander, which has both corsets & time travel. It’s also compelling & replete with oral sex. Thus, exception.

Hard limits:

urban, plotlines with romance between any familial relationship (aka I dislike stepbrother novels), books where the heroine falls in love with her rapist. HARD PASS.

I don’t care if you’re a new or established author, traditionally published or self-published – I only care if your book is good. Because who wants to read shit?

If you reach out to me to request a review:

1) I’ll let you know if I’m interested in reviewing it and if I have time to review it;
2) I’ll give you a general timeframe as to when I think I can review it by; and
3) If I promise to review, you get my honest review, whether that’s good or bad.

Please do not send me your book with your request email.

All reviews and opinions on this site are my own. Unauthorized use of my original content is prohibited.

I do sometimes get books for free in exchange for a review – that doesn’t guarantee I’ll give a good review, just that I’ll review it. I will always give an honest review. I post all of my reviews/thoughts to GoodReads and Amazon. I usually only highlight the good stuff on my blog, unless I’m feeling especially ranty. Regardless, I strive to give substantive feedback.

Also, I might be a lawyer in real life but  I’m not your lawyer. Nothing on this blog contains any legal advice. Ok? Ok.

Let's discuss!
