Eastern Shore Swingers Box Set (Fisher of Men, The Catch, Siren Call) by Phoebe Alexander – Review by Ashleigh Harrington

Eastern Shore Swingers Books 1-3 (Boxed Set)Eastern Shore Swingers Books 1-3 by Phoebe Alexander
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Eastern Shore Swingers Series by Phoebe Alexander is an erotic romance collection and is suggested for readers 18 and above. It is a series of suspense, erotic romance and mystery, and one that will keep you blushing from head to toe while being on the edge of your seat. I highly suggest that this series be read in order, even though each book can stand alone, start reading with Fisher of Men, The Catch and finally Siren Call. Each book is incredibly unique, but they all build on each other. If you are looking for a great series, as well as a fantastic author, this is a series that you need to jump on now.

Fisher of Men

Fisher of Men is part of a new series by Phoebe Alexander called East Shore Swingers, and I was initially drawn to this story because the heroine, Leah, comes from Nebraska which is close to my hometown. The religious background of Leah comes to blows with the lifestyle of our hero Cap, who leads a life full of parties and good times. Leah wants a life with Cap, having put her trust and heart with him, but their lifestyles will have to find a way to mesh to give them both the happy ending they want. I really wanted to like this book more, and I hope that the other books in this series will be better, but I just couldn’t get passed the character Leah and how childish she was about certain things. This is the first book that I have read by Alexander, and I will definitely pick up books of hers in the future but this one just wasn’t a great fit for me

The Catch

The Catch by Phoebe Alexander is the second book in her Eastern Shore Swingers Series and it just keeps getting better and better. Following the story of the secret club for those who like a taste of darkness with their nightlife, and this is where we find our main characters Paisley Parker and Calvin Mitchell. Paisley is new to Ocean City and loves working for the club, but didn’t realize just how much the club awakes something inside of her. There is a confidence booster that comes when she walks into the club, and the stares that she gets from the male patrons just makes her feel even sexier. When Paisley meets a man that is going to want everything from her, her heart and her history, will she be able to resist the temptation to lean on someone other than herself? Calvin is an all-around good guy, business owner, smart and hot as all get out. When he starts to pursue Paisley he isn’t shy about his intensions or about his ability to win over her body to get to her heart. The more that Paisley attempts to push him away the more that he stays with her, determined to get the girl that took his breathe away. When Paisley’s past comes back to get to her, she finds that he turns to Calvin for help and he is willing to risk it all to keep her safe. Is there a future in the cards for these two wounded lovers? Will Calvin be able to prove to Paisley that he is in this for the long haul? Can she trust him enough to fall for him? Alexander really knows how to pack a punch with this book! Her characters and storyline will pull you in from the very beginning and you will find yourself unable to get over these two long after the book ends. While this book can be read as a standalone I totally recommend reading the book in series order, as characters from other books do make cameo appearances. Plus you can never have too many books! I can’t wait to see how this series continues to grow!

Siren Call

Siren Call by Phoebe Alexander is the third book in her Eastern Shore Swingers series and let me just say this series just keeps getting better and better. Following the story of Jessie Martinez and Sirena Home, we are reintroduced to The Factory and all the characters from both Fisher of Men and The Catch (books 1 & 2 of this series) all make appearances. Jessie is a police officer, with a deep love and appreciation for all the uniform stands for. When her friends ask her to keep an eye on the newest swinger to the club, Sirena, Jessie sees no problem with it. But the problem is, the more time that Jessie spends around Sirena the more that she is attracted to her. When passions run high, Jessie and Sirena could be burned up by the flames. Each book in this series were so well written, including deep understanding of each person’s psyche and what drives them in the lifestyle that they are in. Alexander obviously did her research on swingers, made sure to give great details on her characters, the storyline and everything in between. Seeing a FF romance was a great twist, as there aren’t many out there that are this well written. I have had the pleasure of reading this entire series, and I can’t wait to see with Alexander takes this series in the future. If you are looking for a great FF romance, a story about love or even just a story outside of your normal reading this is one that you need to pick up

The Eastern Shore Swingers Box Set by Phoebe Alexander
5 out of 5 Stars

This Author never fails to deliver an amazing book with complex characters and detailed story lines and scenes. It would only makes since that this book series would be top notch and one very HOT read.

Fisher of Men (Eastern Shore Swingers Book 1) by Phoebe Alexander
5 out of 5 stars

I do not give out a lot of 5 stars. A book must really touch my soul, be incredibly well written, and/or have an a major impact on me to get 5 stars from me. This book has more than earned the 5 stars. Fisher of Men is an erotic romance novel and this first in this series and it came crashing through the front door. Leah Miller, daughter of a Preacher Man (Praise Be to Aretha) was raised in a very conservative, Christian household. I would almost call it claustrophobic with its rules and regulations. But instead of following in the parent chosen life, she branched out into Hotel Management and took a job on the East Coast with a hotel called, The Pearl, where she figured she would learn about how the rest of the world live. There she meets and falls for a man aptly named Cap, or Capt Chris Sheldon, who, after attending one of the famous parties hosted by The Pearl, she learns…is a swinger.

This plot, while extreme, has some very relatable characters. Leah and Chris are both very loveable and extreme fun. Chris is super hot. I pictured a Chris Hemsworth look alike in my head, but I also can admit to a small obsession with the Aussie. Ms Alexander has done an incredible job keeping the reader engaged, yet not rushing the story. Her book is both complex, yet delicate in its simplicity that it is a love story. This book is highly recommended for readers of romance, erotic stories and just fans of Phoebe Alexander.

The Catch, Book 2 in the Eastern Shore Swingers Series by Phoebe Alexander
4 out of 5 Stars
This author never ceases to amaze. This second book in the Eastern Shore Swingers series is just a sizzling as the first. This book can be read as a standalone, however, I do highly recommend you read Book One at some point, because it is fantastic in its own right.
Paisley is a strong independent woman who don’t need to man, or at least she doesn’t need a relationship. The physical aspect of the man, she can get jiggy with, the emotional side of it, she can deal without. She is a flawed character and I loved that Ms Alexander wrote a character that has curves for days. Paisley is not the typical flat tummy, long legged runner who you would normally see in the Ocean City landscape around Maryland and when she is hired as a manager at a hotel, her first priority is to hire someone to design the hotel’s website.

Enter Calvin…the not so geeky..but I am a tall drink of water..Calvin. He challenges everything she knows. He pushes her boundaries and her comfort levels. When the steam starts to rise between them, the sheets start to smoke. When a blast from Paisley’s past come barreling back and threatens her, Calvin risks his own well-being to protect her and she starts to believe that he just maybe the very thing that she has been waiting for.

This book is super hot. 18+ audience for super mature theme and some steamy between the sheets scenes. Smooth easy read with passages and paragraphs flow from one thought to the next. As a reader you do not feel rushed through the story and the story line progresses at a pace that is both relevant and applicable to the story.

The Sirens Call Book 3 in the in the Eastern Shore Swingers Series by Phoebe Alexander
5 out of 5 Stars
In this third installment of the Eastern Shore Swingers Series, we meet Jesse, a cop and friend of the owners of The Factory who need her help solving a mystery that is surrounding one of the new members of their exclusive club. Sirena has a lot of rumors surrounding her and it is a huge cause for concern from the Owners of the Club.

Jessie is determined to learn what Sirena has to hide, Sirena joined the club as a means to escape. She is determined to not cave under Jessie’s investigation. Each come crashing together in the most explosive way.

Ms Alexander knows exactly how to draw the reader into the story with the first paragraph and hold them. I was hooked from the first sentence. I highly recommend this book.

This book is super hot. 18+ audience for super mature theme and some steamy between the sheets scenes. Smooth easy read with passages and paragraphs flow from one thought to the next. As a reader you do not feel rushed through the story and the story line progresses at a pace that is both relevant and applicable to the story.

Each of these books can be read as a stand alone, but i am a huge advocate, that as a reader, you should read a series in book order, regardless if a series is standalone or not. Phoebe Alexander is an amazing author and continues to put her heart and soul into each book and this series is one complete portion/ I adored this so much!

Eastern Shore Swingers (Boxset Books 1 to 3)
By Phoebe Alexander

Fisher of Men (Book 1)
After some bad relationships and with Will breaking her heart in such a way that she didn’t know how she was going to recover, Leah decided that she was going to let God guide the man to her that she should be with. She also knew this wouldn’t happen until God knew she was ready for it.
Leah works at the Pearl Resort as she describes her work role as keeping guests and staff happy. One of Leah’s main roles is to help guests organize their functions and to ensure that all guests can have a room booked for that night. She also ensures that the guests have everything they ask for to make sure their functions go off without a hitch.
Leah gets a call from her boss Barry to say they are a bar tender down for tonight’s function and asks if she can help. Having never attended bar before she has a few nervous moments. Little does Leah know that tonight’s function is a group of swingers who raise money for charities in the area.
As the function starts Leah serves what she thinks is a handsome man with a gorgeous smile. It’s this handsome man that tells Leah that everyone at this function are swingers. During their conversation she finds out this man’s name is Chris, but he goes by the name of Cap by his friends. Leah asks why Cap and he tells her it’s because he is a captain of a fishing boat. Leah can’t get Cap out of her mind and questions if God is sending her a swinger as her ideal partner.
Walking her dog Glory on the beach Leah bumps into Cap while he is walking his dog Keeper. Cap asks Leah if she would like to go for a coffee, but she makes the excuse that she must go back to work.
After all what future could she have with a swinger?
And as fisherman and swinger what is it that he could possibly offer her?

The Catch (Book 2)
The Catch is book two in the Eastern Shore Swingers series by Phoebe Alexander. The catch can be read as a standalone quite easily. Keeping in mind this series is not suited for younger readers. As with book one book will also keep you wanting to turn the page to see what the main characters are getting up to. The Catch is centered around Paisley and Calvin. I loved their story and how they protective of each other. You will be surprised just how much depth the characters have considering the subject of the book. Paisley avoids relationships, and this is why I loved how Calvin and Paisley had such a good connection. Is there room in her life to love Calvin? Calvin needs to show Paisley that they do have a future, but how is he going to do this with her need to avoid relationships?

Siren Call (Book 3)
Siren Call is the third instalment in the Eastern Shore Swingers series by Phoebe. Luckily this book can be read as a standalone and the storyline is very easy to follow. I wasn’t real sure about this book as I have never read a female/female romance before. But let me tell you I was pleasantly surprised and really enjoyed the story. There are quite a lot of sex scenes in this book but in true Phoebe style she has written the parts very well. As you can guess this is not your normal romance story, and by normal, I mean male/female. The book also has swingers, lesbian and bi sexual storylines, so if you aren’t into this type of reading don’t read the book, but I can tell you if you don’t read it you are going to miss out on a wonderfully written book. It an absolute hot read, so go get the series and I hope you enjoy it as I have. Thank you Phoebe for such a wonderful series.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This box set contains the first three books of the Eastern Shore Swingers series. One of the great things about this author is the inclusion of so many body positive and sex positive aspects into her stories. There are a lot of real-to-life struggles that keep the books relatable and engaging. Even though each story can be read as a standalone, it is great to read them back-to-back and this collection makes that easy. Side note, be sure to read the fourth book, Sailors Knot, when you finish this set! It does not disappoint.

Fisher of Men
One of the things that kept me interested is probably the fact that I can relate to the internal struggle, both regarding faith and the emotional aspect, that Leah goes through as she begins to unravel the structure she has been taught is the truth and proper way of living. It is emotionally strenuous to find out things about yourself that go against what you’ve been taught is proper. Add to that the input of outside sources and you’ve got a recipe for drama and heartache.

The Catch
The Catch has a different feel than the first book. This story is filled with suspense and a bit of mystery. It also has a different feel in the way the relationship plays out. I enjoyed the development of Paisley’s character and the contrast between the way she shaped herself as an adult and what she dealt with as a child. I also loved that this book is body positive!

Siren Call
What I love about this book is that it shows the range of strength to vulnerability that women can have. It also shows the different ways that we deal with emotional trauma and how that affects our ability to communicate and relate to other people. And, as always, the author has the ability to convey alternative lifestyles with positivity while also showing the concerns associated with it. For instance, in this book one of Jessie’s concerns is being in a relationship with someone who is bi-sexual—the fear that she might not be enough for the other person. A real fear that comes up for many people.
I think my favorite part of the whole story is Sirena’s scene with the sheriff…cracked me the heck up!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Eastern Shore Swingers Series (3 book Boxed Set) by Phoebe Alexander is an amazing trio of books that continuously and effortlessly entertained me, left me breathless and craving for more. A good author always provides you with stories that hold you frantically captivated, but an outstanding one has you anticipating the next one before you have finished the current one. Phoebe Alexander gives a reader that and more. You can always tell when an author’s heart and soul lives in each story.

Book one, Fisher of Men, is the story of Leah and Chris “Cap” Sheldon. While Leah was a pleasure to get to know, Cap was like savouring a piece of Belgian chocolate. Quality at its finest. Their story was emotional and a wonderful journey of discovery, with many bumps along the way.

Book two, The Catch, is the story of Paisley and Calvin. That was a spicy story that kept the tension at an all time high, with a reader never really knowing which way the pendulum would swing. It was riveting, edge of your seat reading, and the story was written just to keep the reader desperate for more.

Book three, Siren Call, is the story of Jessie and Sirena. I really got into this story. Having not read many female/female stories, I was not fully aware of what to expect. Jessie has a job to do, but cannot help being drawn to Sirena. Sirena was a hard character to crack. But that just made her more intriguing and delectable. There story was exciting, filled with arousing tension, and overflowing with substance and heart.

The Eastern Shore Swingers series was one I enjoyed beautifully, but too quickly. This series is a more than once read, and one to be savoured. 5 stars.

The Eastern Shore Swingers Books 1-3 (Box Set) By Phoebe Alexander

4 Stars!!!!

If you are looking for something different and want to push your boundaries just a little then this is the box set for you. I was just lost in this series from book one. I found that the author has a real unique writing style that really handles the subject well. I quite found myself relating to the characters and finding that even though I would not actually delve into the type of world she has created that I still could enjoy reading about.

The characters really get endeared to the reader and their lifestyle isn’t brought in the readers face but slowly introduced. I find that you are able to really delve into the books and let your imagination run with you. I definitely recommend this series to delve into the fantasies that you are too afraid to really act out but love to read about. This author is definitely one of my top favorite authors and I will definitely be reading more from her and hopefully this series.

This is hands down one of my all time favorite series. Each story will take you on a whirlwind of emotions but they lead you to the perfect ending.

Eastern Shore Swinger’s Club is the most popular swingers club in the mid Atlantic. If you are part of the lifestyle, this is the club you want to be in!

The one thing I loved about this series is how REAL the conflicts and emotions are. Yes, there are definite sexy times in the books but its so much more. The emotions and issues the characters face is something we all all face with our own relationships. I loved seeing how the characters faced their problems and coming out into their own in the swinging community.

Miss Alexander’s writing is superb! The stories she weaves are nothing less than perfect. Once you read book 1 you’ll be dying to start 2 and 3 right away!

Eastern Shore Swingers Books 1-3 (Boxed Set)Eastern Shore Swingers Books 1-3 by Phoebe Alexander
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Eastern Shore Swingers Books 1-3 ( Boxed Set) By Phoebe Alexander. This is a great boxed set that will keep you reading well past your bedtime. They are books about The Factory, a swingers club in Ocean City, Maryland where people come from all over to play in different themed rooms and sometimes there is even romance thrown in. The first Book was my favorite but they are all amazing. Fisher of Men is the first book and its about Leah Miller who meets Chris “Cap” Sheldon who introduces her to “The Factory”. Leah is curious about the place but is afraid it conflicts with her Christian beliefs. Leah also struggles with feelings she develops for Cap. The 2nd book The Catch is about BBW burlesque dancer Paisley Parker becoming the manager of The Factory after Cap and Leah hand it over. She meets Internet guru Calvin Mitchell and sparks fly. The 3rd book Siren Call and its about Jesse Martinez who has always wanted to be a cop since she was little. Now she’s one in Ocean City so when The Sheldon’s ask her to keep an eye on the club for them she’s happy to oblige. The only problem being is the hot distraction of Sirena. Sirena wants nothing to do with a relationship but Jesse is determined. These are fun, sexy stories that will keep you turning the pages.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Fisher of Men
Fisher of Men by Phoebe Alexander is book one of the Eastern Shore Swingers Series. This book is an erotic romance and is suggested for readers 18+.

This book is Leah Miller and Captain “Cap” Chris Sheldons story. Leah was raised with strict Christian values and her family really expected her to follow their footsteps in the ministry. Leah wanted more though. She wanted to branch out from the Midwest so she ended up on the East Coast. After college she accepts a job at The Pearl and that’s where she meets Cap. She didn’t realize it at first but she meets Cap at a swingers party and though she has strong feelings for him, she’s having a hard time reconciling his lifestyle with her Christian values. Will Cap be able to set aside his lifestyle for a relationship with Leah or will Leah be able to look passed her faith at something new?

I enjoyed this book just as I have other books by this author. There was so much emotion and inner turmoil you could almost feel Leah’s struggle. The characters are so well written you can’t help but feel invested in them which really sucks you into the story. I can’t wait to see what the next book has in store!

The Catch
The Catch by Phoebe Alexander is book two of the Eastern Shore Swingers Series. This book can be read as a standalone. This book is really intended for readers 18+ due to subject content. I was pleasantly surprised to find out when I started reading that this book is pretty suspenseful. It definitely adds some layers to the book that really keeps you on the edge of your seat waiting to find out what happens.

As with book one, this book invites you to join the characters at a very specific type of club and the book really does a great job detailing the club and it’s activities so you feel like you’re right there. Paisley is very self-assured. She draws people in with that trait. She manages to draw Calvin in and it’s truly the last thing she wants. Relationships aren’t for her and she stands pretty firm on that. Will Paisley be able to rely on someone other than herself when he past comes back when she least expects it? Will Calvin be able to protect Paisley and convince her of their future?

Paisley doesn’t avoid relationships for no good reason. She tries to stand her ground as a way to protect Calvin just as Calvin is protective of her. I really enjoyed the depth the characters had and the chemistry between them. Paisley felt so real. She was flawed but she was aware of it and knew it was something she needed to work on for herself. Overall, I really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading the next book.

Siren Call
Siren Call by Phoebe Alexander is book three of the Eastern Shore Swingers Series. This book can be read as a standalone. Similar to the first two, it’s intended for readers 18+. This is the first female/female book I’ve read but, it was written very well.

Jessie has always wanted to be a police officer. She’s good at what she does and she loves it. She first meets Sirena when asked to keep an eye on her. Jessie immediately feels protective of Sirena. Sirena is pretty quiet and doesn’t open up much to people. The attraction between the two is almost instantaneous but Jessie pushes to keep things professional as much as possible. Eventually, they may be able to put their pasts and differences aside and find friendship and love in one another.

These characters are deep and complex. One of the differences in the characters is their age and I was able to relate to that so I felt pulled into the characters. This book was very well written and I can’t wait to continue to series.
