The Companion Contract​


RT Magazine TOP PICK and February 2015 Seal of Excellence

"Slow-burn romances aren’t common in erotica, but nothing about the third in Ames’ LA Doms series is typical—in the best way possible."


Publishers Weekly

"Twosomes, threesomes, bondage, a little S&M: porn actress Serena Sakamoto, aka Amy Mendoza, has done it all. In less capable hands her characterization as a tough-on-the-outside insecure young woman might be clichéd, but Ames (The Submission Gift) pulls off a genuinely complex portrayal with ease."


All About Romance

"Clearly, this book is edgy. In a genre populated with virgin heroines, it's a rare treat to find one who relishes sex and is unapologetic for it. Amy is one of my favorite heroines, ever." 


The Submission Gift


Publishers Weekly: Top Ten Romance Books of 2014 (Winner)
RT Awards: Best Digital Erotic Romance 2014 (Nominee)


Publishers Weekly

"A husband hires a "rent boy" to satisfy his submission-craving wife, with no idea of the consequences for all three of them, in Ames's debut, a tender, erotic ménage romance."


RT Book Reviews

"★★★★ 1/2: The attention Ames gives to each relationship creates a rich, entertaining and highly erotic - oftentimes downright dirty - tale."

The Dom Project


Dear Author

"The Dom Project is erotic romance with heavy emphasis on the erotic side. Which isn’t to say it doesn’t have a happy, satisfying ending — but it’s set in a milieu in which the traditional romance “rules” simply do not apply. And it creates that world so well, I didn’t miss them."


USA Today: Happy Ever After

"This book put a smile on my face. John and Robin are such good, mature friends. They respect each other and know that when they start with these BDSM sessions, it definitely will affect their friendship, but they let what happens unfold at a nice pace. If you want a quick BDSM read, I recommend this one."
