About the Author: Tori Carrington

Author Tori Carrington is the penname of husband and wife writing team Lori and Tony Karayianni.Hands down, penning a bio is always the most difficult writing challenge we take on What do we say What do we keep a secret Considering we ve been writing together for over twenty two yearswell, that revealsabout us than anything you ll likely read here We re fiction writers simply because we enjoy escaping into an exciting, colorful, fictional world of our own making Take great, shameless pleasure in delving into the lives of others Revel in living vicariously through our characters, trying on career hats we d never otherwise put on, stretching muscles we d probably be better off excercising in reality We won t even discuss how our writing allows us to voice opinions on society, romance and human sexuality that aren t subject to public ridicule but rather presented as entertainment To go there, well, we d be revealing a little too much, now, wouldn t we So we ll stick to just the facts, ma am or sir, depending on your preference, which may or may not have anything to do with your sex Should you desireinformation, feel free to e mail us and we ll provide you with our phone number, or our preference arrange to meet with you one on one where we can learn as much, or perhaps , about you as you will about us Depending on our mood, we may spill everything we d prefer to keep a secret, like which traits we would change about the other if given half a chance Likewise, we may wisecrack our way through the interview, sprinkle our responses with what we find exciting about our latest book, and blissfully skate over personal details that might bare a little too much.Trust us, this is not an attempt to create an aura of mystery We re not quite that saavy No, we re just very protective of our evolving selves and consider ourselves open minded, known to change an opinion the moment we voice it or are presented with further information, so we re hesitant to commit any to writing Guess we re very Socrates like as opposed to Socratic in that way, which isn t altogether a bad thing..So rather than dictate to you here, we ll lay out the basic facts, then provide a number of links to others who have interviewed us.I m Lori Schlachter Karayianni a Holy Toledo, Ohio, native, having attended Central Catholic but ultimately graduating from Macomber Whitney with certification in computer science After working in the computer industry for a number of years and after Tony and I endeavored to write our first novel I switched to temp work which ultimately led to a four year stint as a secretary sales clerk in the engineering and international sales departments of Owens Illinois, the international container company that put the glass into The Glass City I put the brakes on before I reached the five year mark, however, the point of no return for most dreamers who get caught in the corporate trapvacation time Better benefits Probably I should stay until retirement.Tony s background couldn t bedifferent from mine, but thankfully it led him to me Born in Smila, a small hillside village in the area of Ancient Olympia outside Pyrgos, Greece, where his family has deep roots and an older brother still maintains the family olive groves he was raised in Athens during a time of political and cultural upheaval, although neither stopped him from becoming a drummer in a successful pop band that often played with Greek singer Teris Chrysos He immigrated to the U.S in late 1976 and with the help of the Greek community achieved the American Dream Only the hunger for something , the restless searching that originally compelled him to turn his back on his successful music career and brought him here, remained It wasn t until after we d become a couple, and he turned to me and suggested that we try our hand at writing, that both of us discovered the true meaning of th

    The most ridiculous dialogue I have ever read, and I read a lot of ridiculous dialogue I disliked everyone in the triangle, and no one wants to read about people they dislike having great sex.

    Hot plot, blindfolded anonymous sex, but then turned out to be an angsty love story with the heroine having to choose between her two male friends and picks the wrong one The sex scenes were pretty good but the ending was slapdash and contrived.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here This book was okay It started out strong and then kind of fizzled halfway through I though it was headed towards a believable HEA, but the justification for the couple getting together was rushed and the explanation only passable And the one guy who gets left out in the cold basically just wanders off, then comes back and forgives everyone with not justification at all I guess he ll get his own book, but it was just kind of strange.

    Tough but good tooOkay, so this is a hot, quick read Unfortunately, I lost a lot of respect for one of the fellas along the way and he was only redeemed a little in my eyes Otherwise, this was a good solid read.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here Nina has a business partnership and friendship with two hot guys, Gauge and Kevin While feeling particularly hormonal one night and craving sex, Gauge suggests setting her up with an anonymous, blindfolded night of hot sex and it is strongly hinted that it would be one of them She agrees and ends up having the best night of sex of her life with one of the, but she has no idea who And it occurs to her afterwards, that she really wants to know She hounds them, but they don t give up the info Nina has a business partnership and friendship with two hot guys, Gauge and Kevin While feeling particularly hormonal one night and craving sex, Gauge suggests setting her up with an anonymous, blindfolded night of hot sex and it is strongly hinted that it would be one of them She agrees and ends up having the best night of sex of her life with one of the, but she has no idea who And it occurs to her afterwards, that she really wants to know She hounds them, but they don t give up the info she needs So she decides that it s one of them and seduces him only to find out it wasn t when she gets caught by the real mystery lover And he s now heartbroken because he was in love with her So she spends the rest of the book cleaning up her mess This probably had potential as a storyline but for several MAJOR issues First of all is the fact that Nina played Russian Roulette with her friendship and professional life because she wanted some sex I could not feel any sympathy for hershe didn t even know or love the guy she spent a night with and she risked everything to find out which one it was Even after repeated warnings to leave it alone, she threw the friendships in the trash to get onenight TSTL Really Second was Gauge was I supposed to feel sorry for him Because that s what it felt like I m sorry, but view spoiler I cannot forgive or feel sorry for a guy who knowingly has sex with the woman he knows his best friend is in love with I don t care if he s in love with her too which it s hinted at, but he doesn t admit it you exercise some fucking restraint and don t touch So there goes Gauge tossing his friendship out the window Does nobody care about friendships Where did these people get their friendship lessons I was beyond astounded that Kevin actually forgives him at the end of the story hide spoiler Finally, and this is a big one for me, is the argument Nina uses in order to get Kevin to forgive her although it s not like she betrayed him or anything it s not like she knew about his feelings or was committed to anyone Anyway She claims that she never really had sex with Gauge, since she thought he was her mystery lover and therefore she thought she was having sex with Kevin while Gauge was screwing her I call complete and total bullshit Nina only wanted another fabulous night with her mystery lover To her, it didn t matter which guy it was Gauge or Kevin so long as he can give her great sex So at no point did she show a preference for Kevin over Gauge in this regard In fact, you could say she showed a preference for Gauge over Kevin by seducing him in the first place And truly, during the entire sexual experience with Gauge, Nina had no clue that she was with the wrong guy So she really did believe she d found her mystery loverso in effect, she was screwing Gauge the whole time So her argument holds no water whatsoever She really did break Kevin s heart by having sex with Gauge and showing a preference for one friend over the other I can say that this is a unique plot and I think might have been better off to develop in to a threesome or something The jealousy and angst is good, but the reasoning and unrealistic behavior was a bit much to take

    Honestly, I listened to this out of sheer curiosity I m still pretty new to the world of audiobooks and I was wondering how sex scenes would be when read aloud Don t judge, it s human nature to be curious or at least that s what I m telling myself P.Anyway I decided to go with Shameless because it s a lot shorter than most audiobooks but it surprised me by being a really good book I was quickly caught up with the three main characters, their business hello, a bookstore
