Praise for The Chrysalis Series

For Reflection


“Sallinger brings a fresh voice to the genre and makes it her own in this second Chrysalis book. Her scarred, tortured characters are both trapped in their pasts and their pain, and their journey together is one filled with emotional intensity and soul-searching choices, as well as steamy scenes and fiery chemistry.” RT Book Reviews, 4-Star Review

“Reflection is one of the most beautiful and well-written erotic romance stories I have ever read. Elene Sallinger had mastered her craft, no doubt readers would be hooked with her words, characters and plot.” – Reviews of a Book Maniac, 4.5 Star Review

“I would recommend this to anyone who may want a softer read of BDSM but still have some scorching moments!” – The Reading Cafe, 4 Stars

“In the hands of the talented Ms. Sallinger the tale flows from lighthearted and sweet to deep and dark, romantic to heartbreakingly poignant.” – Deluged with Books Cafe, 4 Stars

“Reflection is filled with sexy scenes, awkward conditions and even suspense but mostly this book is about trust between two people who were hurt in the past in very different ways. Elene Sallinger, the author, gives us a beautiful and well written story about love, comprehension, self-surrendering and being able to overcome his own fears no matter the circumstances.” Proserpine Craved, 4 Stars

For Awakening


“Exquisitely beautiful, touchingly heart-wrenching, and hedonistic enough to keep your body on fire.”
Coffee Time Romance, 5 stars

“Sallinger brings potent storytelling and characterization to the erotic romance table, offering an actual BDSM novel (as opposed to the BDSM-lite of the Fifty Shades series) with emotional depth and a sweeping romantic sensibility. An emotionally satisfying tale for the BDSM romance crowd.
” – Kirkus

Awakening is not a typical story, but rather an exploration of how two people can come together and bring new life to each other. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has felt alone and deeply in need of love” – Book Enamored

“Old wounds surface and demand attention. That said, the title suggests the relationship between Claire and Evan is that exactly…an awakening…for both of them. Fans of Cherise Sinclair will enjoy Awakening. Evan is a Dom with a hard past and a heart of gold.” – Midwest Galley Girl

“This story of these two emotionally needy characters brings this erotica read to a whole other level. The author does a great job of delving into the psyche of both characters. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and would recommend it with five stars.” – ckwlofton~Books & Photos and a little bit of everything else

“Elene Sallinger has written strong characters with compelling stories.” – Dirty Girls’ Good Books Blog

“‘Awakening‘ was really an incredible story, it showed how intimate and loving a BDSM relationship can be. Steamy, romantic, AND educational. This book pointed out how a little bit of knowledge (gained from our favorite erotic novels) can be dangerous. If novels have awakened your BDSM side, it pays to do your research before jumping into the lifestyle. ” – Mommy Porn

“It feels like the reader is initiated into the world of BDSM with Claire, everything is explained, and for once it doesn’t all feel too full on. I feel the author did a wonderful job of capturing the emotions of the characters, and letting us, the reader in on them. ” – Afternoon Bookery

“Elene Sallinger knows how to turn up the heat and strike your pleasure points with a fine leather flogger.” – Robert Downs, Top Goodreads Reviewer

“The characters were wonderful, just heartbreakingly honest, so real. This was the backbone of the whole book.” – Deluged with Books
