Dawn Sims has made a name for herself writing romantic fiction online. When she's pushed to try her hand at publishing, she thinks she has everything figured out. The only problem? She's never been in a relationship, especially one that has led her to finding The Big O. So much for writing what you know. Warner Green has had Dawn in his sights since she walked into his class in seventh grade. She broke his teenage heart not once, but twice, so seeing her in his night class at the local community college was an unexpected surprise. Accidentally reading her bad erotica on her laptop was a blessing from the Smut Gods themselves. It's clear she has no idea what she's writing about, but Warner does. In fact, he knows so much that he's willing to offer her his services. The deal is simple: teach the good girl from high school everything she needs to know to write from experience. If he gets to live out a fantasy or two that he's been harboring for almost a decade, then there's no harm in that either. The lessons turn more heated, and Dawn begins to question where Warner has learned his skills, but he's not ready to talk, until his past comes back to haunt him at the worst possible time. It shouldn't matter when it's for authentication purposes only.  

Kristine's Review:

Reviewed: January 2015.

There are books that tear your heart out, books that make you question everything you've ever believed, books that put you through the ringer, and others that leave you somewhere between hot and bothered and ready to hump the next thing that moves, while laughing your arse off. For Authentication Purposes is the latter. 

Eight Days A Week gave me my first taste of Amber L. Johnson, and I was instantly hooked, finding the perfect balance of humour, heat and heart can be tricky, but Johnson nailed it, so I had pretty hefty expectations for FAP (ha ha...yes I still giggle at that one)

Dawn Sims has been writing historical erotic romance on the sly, posting in author/reader critiquing groups online and getting feedback that she should be publishing her work. The idea that you write what you know couldn't be farther from the truth, Dawn knows nothing about maiden sea voyages, sexy leading men, and wild crazy soul consuming sex. When one time childhood friend, and present day nuisance Warner Green stumbles across Dawn's work, she might have finally found a no strings way to experience everything she writes about...for authentication purposes obviously.

What these two embark on had me simultaneously laughing my arse off, and fanning myself to cool down. I've read plenty of sexy books, but this one...yeesh...phroawwww...this was effortlessly sexy, two characters who can laugh with each other, at themselves, the storyline was original from start to finish and I was hooked from the first page, not because FAP was exactly what I expected, but because it was everything I wanted to read without even realising it.

Amber L Johnson continues to wow me, I know without a doubt that I'm in for something special when I pick up her books, her characters are real, stories are believable, and filled with everything I want in a book. The sexual chemistry, the attraction and banter, the heartfelt feels, the moments of sheer hilarity, this author has cemented her place as someone I will 1click with no hesitation.



Come on. Say it. I know where youre going.
Shifting a little to look at him, I resisted the urge to kick him in the nuts and lick his neck at the same time. I mean he looked pretty hot sitting in my chair eating that muffin. Stupid handsome face and fornication hair paired with what I assumed were dirty jeans and a plaid flannel.
Fine. Im going to buy a vibrator with the money you gave me. Happy?” His smile was in full force now. Hell yeah, Im happy. Ecstatic, even.” He chewed around the pastry in his mouth and laughed. Ill come with you to make sure you get the right one. Oh, hell no. Being with you in a porn shop is on my list of Things to Never Do before I Die.  



A true child of music, Amber's parents surrounded her with the loudest beats they could find, molding her into a girl who found inspiration and meaning in lyrics and chords. Raised on John Hughes movies, Luck Dragons, and pirate ships, she dreamed of love and adventure. When Amber began to create her own world, she envisioned a place where Happy Ever Afters do exist. Since then, she has authored several romance novels, all of which focus on songs and the way they can touch people's lives. Music may not be able to fix a broken heart, but it can provide one hell of a soundtrack for healing. A full-time wife and mother with a full-time job, Amber finds her muse in everyday life and the people who bring her inspiration.        
Be sure to look for Amber's other books!
