Some lovely words from folks who have enjoyed my books – thank you for taking the time to write your thoughts x x x
Look – a wonderful review from Sassy !
I have to begin by saying that this review has taken me quite some time to write, as I really didn’t know how to put into words exactly what I thought and give The Meeting Point enough to do it the justice it deserves. It has sat in my drafts for weeks being altered and tampered with and now, I’m finally ready to post! Apologies Tabitha.
This is the much anticipated third book in The Meeting Point Trilogy by Tabitha Rayne. The first of these is A Clockwork Butterfly which I reviewed here, and the second is Taking Flight and you can find my review here.
Tabitha has a very unique writing style which captivates the imagination and gives you a unique closeness to each of the characters, even the ones you may dislike. I was really pleased to see a few of the characters I’d grown close to in the first book making a return in this one, especially as I hadn’t realised they played such an important part in the final book. Once again, I was gripped from beginning to end and struggled to put it down.
Deborah Regan has been searching for her lover Marcus since he was carted off to a special ‘men only farm’ where men are being imprisoned and used for rich women’t gratification. The rest of humankind is almost extinct due to the deadly toxins in the air but the survivors are fighters and will do whatever it takes to be reunited …even at the risk of their own lives. The sheer determination shown by each of the characters is so admirable and the sexual tension makes for some very steamy reading! I don’t want to give too much away but the end left me in a state of sheer disbelief. When I read any novel, I always have a few guesses as to how it will all turn out in the end, but Tabitha manages to lead you on an unknown journey with many unexpected twists and turns. The emotion comes through loud and clear from each character and you feel their pain and indeed their joy. I love how easily I can relate to all the characters, even though I may not have agreed with how they handled certain situations, but the slightly cheeky and pushy Mae quickly became one of my absolute favourites!
Tabitha Rayne is a truly fantastic writer and knows exactly how to relate to her audience. She draws the reader into an unknown fantasy world and allows them to escape reality with emotionally charged and extremely erotic scenes. I have red a few of Tabithas’ books now and would very highly recommend any of them.

was given this book free and so wish to give it a fair
Tabitha Rayne has excelled in my opinion. Her “A
Clockwork Butterfly” was the second erotica book I ever read and
after reading that I wanted more. This is a prequel to that book and
contains slightly different characters. I was nervous when I noticed
a character from “A Clockwork Butterfly” that I disliked
that it would ruin the enjoyment of the book from then on.
Fortunately that wasn’t the case. Tabitha’s strong characters and
immersive world captivated me once more and had me looking at that
character through new eyes.
I read mostly science fiction and
fantasy but once again Tabitha has written a story that even without
the wonderfully explicit and hot sex scenes, stands on it’s own
merits. The sex scenes add to it rather than detracting from the
I found myself creating a vivid mental image of the
world and all the characters within a chapter or two – not something
that comes naturally to me. I also found myself panting not just for
the next saucy scene but also to see what would happen to the
characters. I don’t resort to tears often but I confess at one point
I had to grab a tissue.
I don’t just want the next book in the
series but find myself _needing_ it. My mind has started to wonder
about how and when the books link and I want to find out what does
happen to them now. Will the third book concentrate on the characters
we meet in “Taking Flight”, “A Clockwork Butterfly”
or indeed both. What will become of the characters and what will
happen in such a world as this?
If I could give this 5.5 stars
I would, if erotica is your thing or even if science fiction/fantasy
is then give it a go. Easy read and can be read in a few hours and
entertaining. What more could a person want.
is a dystopian fantasy where the male population is slowly dying out
and Dr Deborah Regan is set with the task of finding a cure to save
the male race …..which proves to be alot harder than it sounds. All
the remaining men have been taken to stay at a ‘farm’ where their
semen is tested in the hope of one day finding a cure ….all except
Deborah is harboring her own secret, she has her lover
and soul mate, Marcus, living with her and when the authorities turn
up to search her home, they escape through a passageway and go on the
run together. The only place that seems safe enough to hide is in the
woods where they hope to lay low and most importantly, stay together.
Whilst in the woods, they stumble upon a couple embarking on a sexual
encounter and decide just to stay silent and observe. A while later,
this same couple help them by giving them a place to stay and also
some handy hints on how to cover their tracks and survive out there
in the wild.
Eventually, the authorities catch up with Marcus
and cart him off to the ‘Farm’ whilst Deborah is taken to a facility
somewhat like a prison, where she is instructed to continue her
research. It’s not long before Deborah finds an ally and a light at
the end of the tunnel. Both her and Marcus believe that their bond is
so strong, that they can find eachother at the ‘meeting place’ in
their minds, it’s just a question of when.
Once again, Tabitha
has really excelled herself with this novel and left me gasping with
both shock and delight. You’re drawn into a completely different
world where nothing is the ‘norm’ and everything is unexpected. The
relationship between Deborah and Marcus is so deep and moving that it
almost brought me to tears at certain points. I fell totally in love
with both characters and felt like I was on their journey with them.
The exceptional detail and strength of feeling was evident from
beginning to end and really added to my enjoyment. Tabitha is a true
expert when it comes to fantasy, and not just sexual fantasy either.
She delves into the minds of her characters so the reader has a
greater understanding of their personalities, feelings and motives
which allows you to become submersed in the story.
loved reading Taking Flight and now can’t wait for the final book of
the trilogy to see what the final outcome might be.

Flight by Tabitha Rayne
Taking Flight is a prequel to A Clockwork
Butterfly. This story takes place in the future where men are a dying
race. Dr. Deborah Regan is a lab tech trying to figure out a cure to
produce more men to the population because without them there is no
future. Dr. Regan is keeping a secret. She is actually hiding her
lover Marcus in her house. All the men are supposed to be at a
“Farm”. A farm is a place where they take the men so they
get samples of their sperm for testing. She had finally made progress
in her testing of the sperm when everything changed.
They had to
escape into the woods because her house was being raided. They ended
up living off the land for a while. While in the woods they came
along another couple who taught them how to survive. What they didn’t
know is that this couple would betray them because of the love they
share for one another. You see Deborah and Marcus shared a bond that
would take them to another plane. No matter where they were they
could always find each other on that plane. Marcus and Deborah we
separated due to the betrayal and Marcus was sent to a farm and
Deborah was sent off to another lab but it felt more like a
Marcus had told her he would find her and he would never
give up. The only contact they would have is when they met on their
plane. I know it’s confusing but you will understand once you read
it. Deborah had come in contact with someone who actually knew Marcus
but she didn’t realize that till that person was walking away to
leave the prison. Tabitha then left me hanging!!!! OMG I wanted it to
keep going. This was a steamy hot read. Yes there was sex involved.
Who am I kidding there was a lot of sex. Tabitha takes us off in a
new adventure and I can’t wait till the next one comes out to see
where this adventure leads us.
“I received this book as a
review copy in return for an honest review”
to put down and hard when reading!, 15 Oct 2013
fantasy/erotica novel with plenty of juicy sex scenes. A must read
for fans of erotic literature and steampunk. A great read for couples
looking to spice things up in the bedroom.
All young women born into this strange world, are watched from birth to see if they have what it takes to help reproduce more males into the population. Lena seems to stand out from the crowd, and although naive and innocent, they see great prospect in her.
Mae is one of the first girls Lena meets, she introduces herself to Lena in the most unexpected way and wastes no time in showing her the ropes (so to speak). Before long, they become alot more than just friends. It’s during her time spent with Mae, that it’s discovered that Lena carries a rare pheromone which they believe could reignite human fertility. Once it’s confirmed, no time at all is wasted in pairing her with the ‘perfect match’.
Angelo, whom Lena is assigned to, is just as innocent as her and he soon reveals that she is his first collector which means that he’s never been in contact with a woman before ….nor her a man!
Before long, the inevitable happens and they fall in love which is strictly forbidden in this world. Once their love is discovered, Lena is carted off elsewhere for punishment and Angelo is assigned a new collector ….Mae.
Can Angelo and Mae hatch a plan to find his one true love, or is she gone forever?
A Clockwork Butterfly is so beautifully written that I became totally engrossed in reading and lost all contact with the outside world. The sensuality and intimacy of the sex scenes is extremely well written and have great depth. Admittedly I did suffer slight dampness on more than one occasion ……boy they’re hot!! Every emotion felt by the characters, is shared by the reader and I found myself shouting at the book quite often, pleading for them to listen to me. I didn’t see many of the twists and turns coming so there were a few surprises along the way which just added to the excitement. Every sexual taste is catered for here with a good mix of f/f, m/f, m/f/f, f/f/f and BDSM.
The ending was a bit of a cliffhanger which left me wanting, no, needing, to know what happened next! I hope to see a prequel to this!
If you’re looking for an erotic read that you can immerse yourself in and be totally hooked, then this is it. Fantastic!!
The book does contain same sex scenarios and BDSM scenarios, so if these things are not to your tastes then perhaps read something else. I however enjoy both these scenarios and so without concern I started the book today. Yes that’s right I said I’d started it today. I couldn’t put it down and had to keep reading, it’s only approximately 165 pages but it drew me in within about 3 pages. I like the authors style of writing and indeed enjoyed her scenarios. I then found out that this is book 1 of 3 in the series and so will be purchasing the next couple quite happily.
A Clockwork butterfly has had me enthralled since I started reading it. It’s like a futuristic Alice in wonderland with at least one hot scene in every chapter. You become involved in the three main characters trails & tribulations and genuinely warm to their personalities and love for each other. If you like the sounds of a well written adventure fantasy book with lots of hot steamy scenes then this book’s for you.
In her own unique way (you’ll have to read it to see how), Mia manages to get her hands on a library book which holds a little secret of its own. She goes from being a quiet, reserved young girl who barely manages to raise her head let alone a smile, to a confident young woman with a great sexual appetite who’s being torn between two lovers …..one of whom is a ghost!
Will Mia enjoy the fruits of her labor and continue her love affair with both, or will matters complicate themselves forcing her to choose between them? You gotta read it!!
I wasn’t really sure what to expect when I began reading this as Fifty Shades was probably the first book of erotic fiction i’d ever read, and although I really enjoyed the steamy storyline, I found that it wasn’t exactly well written!
Mia’s Books however was a whole new ball game …..there’s sex aplenty and no unnecessary babble. The storyline is kept short and interesting which made it very hard to put down once I got going, and the odd added twists were unexpected and made it all the more exciting. I really loved the paranormal element of this as it added a whole new dimension and the sex descriptive was far better than i’d read in the Fifty Shades books. I could actually visualize everything I was reading and absolutely loved it!!
(VINE VOICE) (TOP 1000 REVIEWER)
This novella throws you right into the middle of the action, with a saucy yet unusual encounter in a library. From there, things move quickly for insomniac Mia, who goes from being horny and frustrated because of a lack of lovers, to being inundated with both lovers and sex. Hot sex, I must emphasise.
I don’t want to give anything away, so I’m not going to say much more about the plot, other than it is exciting, unexpected and has a couple of lovely twists in there that will keep you guessing.
So if you’re looking for an erotic paranormal read with m/f and f/f scenes, you should definitely add Mia’s Books to your list. It’s well-written, pacy and sexy – what more could you want?
