Love It: The Lumberfox by Ava Lovelace

Series: Geekrotica 1
Format: PDF
Release Date: 
Publisher: Self
Source: Author
Recommended By: Mel of Lily Element
Genre: Erotica
Purchase: Amazon

Caught in Atlanta's Snowjam 2014, self-confessed geek Tara is rear-ended by the hottest guy she's ever met. Ryon is a beer brewer and restauranteur who fits the bill of what Tara and her friends call a "lumberfox": sartorial lumberjack style, cultivated facial hair, tattoos, and specialized tastes. When he invites Tara to spend the snowstorm in his nearby condo, she takes a gamble and slogs through the Hothlike blizzard, where she learns that a man who takes that much time with his mustache knows exactly what to do with his mouth.

Due to its strong sexual content, this novel is recommended to readers 18 and up.


Let me first address the obvious before I get to the meat of things. Yes, the cover is like 80's paperback or something, maybe even the 70's, and I HOPE Ava Lovelace would give it a makeover because the dude with the handlebar mustache (maybe it's the lighting but it looks like he has one) isn't cutting the sexy. 

On to the plot and the smut! LUMBERFOX is an erotica novella and the first of ALovelace's Geekrotica series. LUMBERFOX is a quick read at 43 pages with a very simple plot and this sexy nooner is packed with smoldering sexy times between Tara and Ryon. There's really nothing much to the story except for these two meeting in the middle of a traffic jam and getting it on like Donkey Kong later. Tara was in a hurry to get home to try her brand-new BoB, which she still got to use later on, and Ryon serendipitously rear-ended her (pun intended!). Ryon's condo unit is conveniently close to where they are and graciously invited Tara for a hot meal (and more) and a warm place to wait out the storm. The funniest moment was when Tara's toy started vibrating as Ryon was checking for damages inside her car. That sure broke the ice between the two and kicked-off their snowstorm sex marathon. 

And boy was it hawt! These two could undoubtedly melt the ice outside from their lovin alone. I like the fact that there was no hint of "love" or a budding romance. LUMBERFOX was very straightforward in painting a classic hook-up picture where two consenting adults went after what they wanted. That said, I really didn't feel it was "geek" enough except for Tara's random mentions of geek terms and the need for a safe word confused me as well. The conflict was a little flimsy but understandable, Tara for minute misinterpreted Ryon's aloofness as rejection and due to how they met, the morning after can indeed be awkward.  Still, LUMBERFOX was an enjoyable escape, looking forward to the next one. 

P.S. Thanks to Mel of Lily Element, for the review alert. Ava Lovelace is Delilah S. Dawson's pseudonym and I'm grateful for the opportunity to be one of the first readers to check out this book.

  2. Yeah....this definitely needs an updated cover. I know it's not nice, but it is hard for me to not giggle.
    But to the point, I'm glad you have Lumberfox a chance, and that it paid off!

    1. The more that I look at it and y'alls comments, the more I'm convinced that the bad cover is intentional. I think it's a joke that we're not getting...

  16. LOL, I'm glad you pointed out the cover, because I was rolling my eyes at it. That guy does not look very sexy, and I wouldn't really want to imagine him having hot donkey-kong sex with anyone!

    It's nice to have some go-to hot and steamy reads that can be read quickly, so thanks for the heads up. I'm adding it to my TBR...

  17. "Geekrotica" I think that's a trend now! I have read SOOO many books with geeky characters recently. And I love it.

    I wonder if the cover is supposed to be cheestastic. Even if it is, it's a huge turnoff and I wouldn't have bothered reading without your review. Sounds great though.
