BriefINK Review: ‘3:AM Kisses’ by Addison Moore

Genre: Barely Not Porn. Or Porn-Ish. Or Porn Lite. As I was reading this book, I just rolled my eyes and tried to understand why anyone would enjoy reading this. I mean, if you take out all of the sexual references, comments, descriptions, innuendos,... Read More | Share it now!
