Through the Woodwork Professional Reviews
5 STARS: "Ms. Nichols has crafted a clever erotic romance that held my attention from the first to the last page. The plot is well developed and blends just the right balance of romance and sex. Both Molly and Benji are realistic characters and had me rooting for them to find the romance they both desperately wanted. The two supporting male characters helped to make the story even more interesting. The flow and pace of the story was just right for reading the entire book in one sitting. The story built to the sex scene at the end of the book like foreplay to a climax. The sex scenes were so good that I practically felt Molly's climaxes. I strongly recommend Through the Woodwork to all erotic romance readers." -- Wendy Cable, Just Erotic Romance Reviews
5 STARS: "She was raised on the farm, but she dreamed of a career in writing. She went off to boarding school in the city, but she came back in the summer. During this summer, a secret admirer kept leaving her notes. She soon started leaving him notes. Will they end up taking a roll in the hay? I will never look at a barn the same again. This story had great sex scenes, but it was much more than that. It was sweet, tantalizing, and romantic. I recommend this!" -- Ashley Turlington, ReviewYourBook
5 KISSES: "Through the Woodwork is beautiful. It's a sweet love story. Both Molly and Benji are virgins and discover sex with each other. I liked how Benji was true to Molly even though the other farmhands had sex with her older sister. Molly was not drawn to them and their roughness. Benji was gentle and shy. Molly was tender with him and his scar was not a barrier for her. She loved him for his gentleness. I loved the ending. Both were aroused by the other and loved the other. I could feel their love and gentleness with each other. I felt satisfied by it and am glad I read this sweet, tender tale." -- Sheila, Two Lips Reviews
Claiming Cullen Professional Reviews
5 STARS: "This has it all. Tess goes on a camping trip with five guys, including her boyfriend. She is a free-spirit, to say the least. She teases them until, with the prompting of her boyfriend, they end up taking turns with her. To me, this was the main part of the book. The other thread is that Cullen and Rael find comfort in their lust for each other. The problem is that both Cullen and Rael also want Tess in their long-term relationship. What type of sex does this book not have? This book has it all, and the action is non-stop. The plot is great, also." -- Ashley Turlington, ReviewYourBook
4.5 STARS: "I liked this book. It's much different than the romance/erotica that I normally read just because there were so many participants. The main characters are well developed and the story is presented from their points of view. The whole story is playful and fun, and very much experimental. There are many settings and twisted games and made this read very unpredictable!" -- Becky W., Erotica Challenge, beckyworkman.blogspot.com
4 CHERRIES: "Claiming Cullen is a hot read that pushes the boundaries as a young woman gets to know her boyfriend's friends quite well. This was definitely a hot read with scenes that I am still fanning myself over. The sex in the story was definitely scorching and a bit unexpected as I was surprised by Tess's willingness and lack of hesitancy with the men. However, it fit her character as Tess entices the five men in an erotic poker game as well as an interesting erotic encounter in the hot tub. I would have loved to have seen what comes next for these fascinating characters, but overall this was an entertaining and sizzling read. It is definitely not for the prudish, so reader beware!" -- Lilac, Whipped Cream Reviews

Oasis of my Heart review from Euro-Reviews:
Five flags, Reviewer Melisa
"Tara Nichols pulled out all the stops for this one. Hot, sexy, and a teaser till the end. Any time Dustin and Sadie come together there is a significant change in the temperature. Things get hot, hot HOT! I've got my eye on Tara Nichols."
"Sadie and Dustin are such a sweet passionate couple I was rooting for them through the entire story. I thoroughly enjoyed this story! It is one that will keep you on the edge."

Secrets of Summer by Tara S. Nichols is short on words but long on romance. Pyper and Liam are reunited at their summer cabins. It is very difficult to develop a plot and characters in a short story. Nichols does both extremely well. She is very talented. This short story could be expanded into a longer novel. Well done, Tara S. Nichols.
