Down and Dirty

Short, Hot and Sweet – Read it! Seriously, this is a tonge in cheek nod to reviewers everywhere. It lacks substance and emotion, but it’s flat out funny… but maybe only if you read RH Reviews.

What is it about?

Mandy is you average tea loving girl with an average life. She goes to work, the coffee shop for Tea and browses her Kindle app for the newest eBook to love. What she doesn’t love is the constant kindle Recommendations for RH romances that plague her app. It’s stupid and unrealistic. 1 girl and multiple men…. and they are all ok with it? Nope. Not happening. 1 star those recommendations to convince the algorithm she’s not interested and move on with her day.

Except her day moves on to unusual meetings, strange encounters and the best, most unrealistic happenings Mandy could possibly imagine.

Please note

This is a Reverse Harem Romance Novel which features scenes and themes more suited to older audiences. 18+

Thoughts on My Cup of Tea

Just my cup of tea!!!

This short story is full of fun, puns and tongue in cheek innuendo. For any fan of RH that happens to browse reviews when deciding on a new book, you might have seen a common thread – a 1 star review from a certain user who simply states, ‘not my cup of tea’. Though these reviews are basically an attack and drag an authors star rating down, it has also almost morphed into a badge of honor in the community. We all know of her and her proclivity to troll, and this kind of RH story is the perfect, mild slap back. Leave it to an author to take a bad trend and throw some glitter on it!


First Person, Single POV

Ending Type



  • Funny.
  • Pointed.
  • Pun heavy.
  • Creative.


  • Plot poor, but that’s not the point.

My Final Verdict on My Cup Tea

Go Read This. Check it out, Buy it – whatever you have to do, just get it. It’s so on point and subtly snarky it’s perfect. But only for the review aspect, if you are expecting a great story with a fascinating plot, then this really isn’t your cup of tea. That’s not the point of this story. =)
