IRIS (THE WILD SIDE #2)

ARE YOU READY FOR A TWIST?

Who is Iris? Where did she come from? Where has she gone?

Alasdair Masters has more questions than answers about his new, too young obsession, and when he finds out she’s been lying to him, from their first meeting to their last one, he’s more confused than ever about her feelings, her intentions.

And what’s just as confusing are his own feelings. Has he turned something purely physical into something emotional in his own head? Is any of it mutual?

The only thing he doesn’t question is whether he’ll keep going back for more.

DAIR

Me, I was simple. I was order. A very neat, efficient machine that ran on nothing but air.

Me plus anyone else, well, that was another matter. And me plus Iris, that was a monster of a machine, with all gears going at different speeds, some spinning off their hinges, just going mad, but it was a wonderful madness, at full throttle, misfiring in all directions.

It felt wonderful and dreadful.

I was breaking down, and it felt amazing.

And terrifying.

This book is intended for readers 18 and up.

♥♥♥♥♥/5

What the fuck just happened here? Someone, anyone?! There has to be someone out there who has read this book and is wondering what the actual fuck is going on in this story.

It’s hard to give a review of something that you’re in the middle of reading where you just have no idea what so ever is going on. I mean in some other series I’ve read, I have a general incliniation, but this… I’m utterly baffled.

Dair is obviously a man possessed. He’s also incredibly horny and I have to say that I like it. The sex between the two characters is palatable and hot. I couldn’t grab just small sections of quotes from the book to share, there were pages of it. Dair doing delicious and wonderful things to Iris.

The story is riddled with page after page of smutty sex and a storyline that leaves you wondering where the hell we are going. I didn’t have a clue when I first started reading The Wild Side [kindle edition – $2.99], I now have less of a clue after reading this.  It’s such a terrible thing either.  I’m rooting for Dair and Iris.  I’m hoping that there is an amazing twist that give us the HEA they deserve.  Of course we wont’ know until July 25th.   I just don’t know what I am going to do with myself.  Seriously!

Oh for R.K Lilley fans, there is a little Easter Egg in the story.  Seriously, I had to read through it twice to make sure that I wasn’t being played with.

Big Bad Wolfe is Back – Red & Wolfe III – Ella James #BookReview #Review

Red & Wolfe III: An Erotic Fairy Tale – Ella James

Fuck me there just isn’t enough of this story! Come on Ella, I need more Wolfe.

The third installment, which I guess at one point was going to be the end **SPOILER** it’s NOT. Was another lust fueled sexual adventure between two people who clearly have no idea how fucking perfect they are for each other.

“That’s why you’re here, remember? That’s why I invited you to stay—so you could be my little fuck doll. Take my dick deep in your throat, then let me eat that sweet pussy.

I don’t even know what I can possibly say to this other than oh my motherfucking, fuck nuggets. If you’ve ever wondered what some of us like to read in our raunchy reads, the entwining of those sweet words above embodies it all. I want “W” to do every one of those things to Red. Many times over. Actually, can he do those things to me? oh and this too

“I’m your new God, Red. Now I want you to close your eyes and let your pussy worship me.”

I love Wolfe’s arrogance. I love how he controls Red and I love that Red submits first and thinks later.

If he’s a killer, he’s still hot as hell.

Wolfe does it at times too, taking from Red so unforgivably and when a normal reaction should be, oh shit that was cold. He comes back from it so swiftly that you really just want to reach out, give the man a pat on the back and say “it’s okay, you made a mistake, now just go fix it”.

I really want these two to be together, like really bad! After that ending, I just don’t know where we are going, I even can’t even fathom a guess. All I can hope for is a Happy Ever After. Sweet mother of pearl, please let there be a Happy Ever After.

Simon’s Back!! Rusty Nailed – Alice Clayton #BookReview #Review

Rusty Nailed (The Cocktail Series) – [Kindle Edition] $7.49

In this sequel to Wallbanger, fan favorites Caroline Reynolds and Simon Parker negotiate the rollercoaster of their new relationship while house-sitting in Sausalito.

Playing house was never so much fun—or so confusing. With her boss on an extended honeymoon, Caroline’s working crazy-long hours to keep the interior design company running—especially since she’s also the lead designer for the renovation of a gorgeous old hotel. And with Simon, her hotshot photographer boyfriend, gallivanting all over the world for his job, the couple is heavy-duty into “absence makes the heart grow fonder” mode. No complaints about the great reunion sex, though!

Then a trip back east to his childhood home has Simon questioning his nomadic lifestyle. He decides to be home more. A lot more. And he wants Caroline home more, too. Though their friends’ romantic lives provide plenty of welcome distraction, eventually Caroline and Simon have to sort out their relationship. Sure, more togetherness is a good thing—but does less traveling and working have to mean the other extreme? Apple pie and picket fences? With this second book in the Cocktail series, USA TODAY bestselling author Alice Clayton delivers another delicious, frothy confection of a book, shaking up her characters, stirring in laugh-out-loud humor, and serving sizzling romance straight up!

Have you ever just wanted to read a book that was bubble gum wrapped around candy floss. I do. Sometimes it’s just nice to read a dirty book that’s all butterflies and unicorns. Nothing horrible is going to happen, not so much that it makes you want to pitch your kindle against the wall, because crap on a cracker, the damn characters just aren’t getting it together fast enough. But I digress.
I don’t remember where we last left Caroline and Simon, truthfully I didn’t care. All I knew was that dear sweet, sexy Simon was back again. This book gets a solid 4.5 from me because I what I would have liked is more Simon time. Maybe an entire chapter worth of Simon. I missed him. I wanted to know about all the wonderful things he was up to and what he was going to do to Caroline, but there wasn’t quite enough of it here for me. Don’t get me wrong though, Alice Clayton is still hilarious. She really knows how to make me laugh.

It was the best of times, it was the nakedest of times . . .

and she does give Simon more character development which was lovely, but it was all sandwiched in between a Caroline who isn’t quite the same woman anymore and yet wants to be the same as she was. I know she had to develop as a character, but I think that in parts, it was a little dragged out. Not that I didn’t absorb those pages like a sponge. I did. I’ll be damned I read that thing as quickly as I could, not because I wanted it to be over, but because of the laughter. Oh the laughter.

Trevor and the apostles in tow

Caroline’s best friends, Mimi and Sophia are back and better than ever (Ms Clayton, these two need their own books!). The dialogue between the girls is simply hysterical. I actually wish I had girlfriends just like them. I will even take Sophia’s fucked up love life. I wonder if Alice Clayton actually knows women like this?
If you want a quick, light, fluffy summer read, I HIGHLY recommend this book. Read the other one first if you haven’t because, well, you’re missing out on more Simon.
Oh and if you’re wondering about Clive. I don’t think it will spoil anything if I give you this little snippet:

“Fuck me—he’s got himself a harem,” I swore, and Simon could no longer contain his laughter.

If you’re wondering who the hell Clive is, go read the book!

Use – CD Reiss (THANK YOU!) #BookReview ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Use (Songs of Perdition Book 2) – [kindle edition] $2.99

From USA Today bestselling author, CD Reiss, the follow up to her Bend Anthology story, KICK.

I thought of Deacon, my master, the one who had helped me function, and who I had betrayed. Maybe one day I’d remember the sticky web of circumstances that put us both in the stables, but did it matter? In the end, did I stab him to be free of him?

And free to what?
To whore? Snort? Party?
Or free to be normal?

**This ends sequence one**

TRIGGER WARNING
***SPOILER***
Heed this.
This book contains non-consensual sex, presented in a non-erotic way.

**Spoilers if you have NOT read Kick and just general spoilers**

Let’s start with WOAH!  ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
I have to wonder what CD Reiss is thinking when she is writing. I wonder if she realizes how much she effects the reader. I noticed first when I read songs of Submission, then there was a little of it in Songs of Corruption. In Songs of Perdition though, it flows out of the page in waves.

I don’t know I could be wearing rose tinted glasses or something, but here we go again. Another Drazen story and this one is a doozy.

I’ll admit that when I read Kick (first in this sequence) I just wasn’t sure if I was going to like this series at all. It seemed dark. But not just dark in the erotic sense, more like a series of tragic events with no light at the end of the tunnel. I was so worried that Fiona was not going to find herself and in the last few moments of that book, it didn’t get any better. So when I picked up USE I did it with a great deal of apprehension. I knew that something had to give. At least I hoped.

So here we go. Fiona hasn’t left her Westonwood home. She’s dealing with some new and welcome emotions. Elliot has abandoned her and Deacon as far as we know is still healing. The one thing that I love about CD Reiss is that you never quite know where she is going to take a story, so when we start to hear events from the aspect of Elliot, it really gives the story that extra bit of weight.
Elliot, for me has a slightly more important role, in this story to Fiona than I think Deacon does. Elliot’s character in Kick was simply a healer for Fiona. I don’t recall him trying or showing that he was doing anything more for her. There may have been the occasional moment where an implication was made that he could have been more for her. At the end of Kick we all know why he left, but I like that in Use, it’s explored.

He’s a man who can be influenced and who is flawed. His relationship with his girlfriend walks a fine line and you just hope that he takes that sweet step off the straight and narrow. His feelings for Fiona are beautifully articulated and the battle he fights when he is around her makes you want him to do the wrong thing all damn day long. He has a code to uphold, but with Fiona, you could forgive him for erring. Simply, he unravels exquisitely.

I’ve side stepped the main gal here, because this post could go on for days about where she could be going, what she is doing and why. She’s broken. Actually I don’t think broken is the term. Maybe shattered. I struggled to like her at all in Kick. I wondered why it was even important to talk about this sister at all. This story, makes me realize that I judged too quickly.

Fiona wants, needs and craves to be normal. Let’s be honest Fiona’s normal isn’t conventional by any means, but a tiny part of me wanted her normal too. Fiona’s normal. No drugs, drinking, partying like a hopped up raver. Tie her up, tie her down, wrap her in hemp and swing her from a beam. That’s the Fiona I want to see. That’s the beautiful Fiona who deserve her happiness. I’m not sure if we’re going to get that. Because that ending? It didn’t really feel like we were done with her yet.

Before I leave! Jonathan! You don’t realize how much you miss a character until they come back to you. Well that’s not completely true in this case. I knew that I missed Jonathan. I wanted to hear more about him, the moment I started this book, but when he does show up, and even though he is underage, I have to tell you I didn’t care. I could have read an entire chapter just relieving every moment of his stay at Westonwood.  CD Reiss has mentioned that she plans to tell more story under the Jonathan and Monica umbrella.  Oh how I can not wait!

A Masters and Mercenaries Novel by Lexi Blake

This works out pretty fucking fantastic for me since I’ve wanted to read something from this series!  and this is even better, because I wanted to read this too!!

Call Girls 1: Merissa – [Kindle Edition] FREE!
Reading eBooks about BDSM sent by her landlady had become quite an obsession for shy graduate researcher Merissa. Finding out she was living in a building run by a high class call girl, and that most of her fellow residents were also ‘in the business’ was quite a surprise, but not as much as finding out they wanted her to take on an assignment.
Given a choice of working evenings in a dingy soulless call centre, or being tied up and spanked by a gorgeous rich man, didn’t seem to be too difficult a choice at first. It was going to be a straightforward arrangement, she’d give up control and he’d look after her, they’d learn together and then say goodbye. Unfortunately, being a sub isn’t as simple, or as easy as her books suggest.
The website warned that two inexperienced people shouldn’t be together, but with the support of her ‘professional’ friends, this would be alright, wouldn’t it?
Warning: Adult content includes amongst other things, spanking, sensual massage, role play, bondage, rope play and a seriously hot hero.
The Call Girls Series which follows five women as they explore the sometimes dark but always brightly passionate world of paid love. Themes in the series, but not in every book, include FTF, voyeurism, BDSM, multiples (including M/F/M and M/M/F), role play and always a seriously sexy man or two. Although not all the girls have a ‘happy ever after’ they at least a ‘happy for now’ ending.

I’m currently reading: IRIS (The Wild Side #2) which I am absolutely loving by the way.  I’ve read some other stuff, some really good stuff and I’ll be posting a couple of reviews here shortly.

Finally Use [Songs of Perdition Book #2] CD Reiss

I can’t wait to jump back on this rollercoaster. I also found out that part 2, to her book Spin [Songs of Corruption] has a release some time in September.

Red & Wolfe, Part III – Ella James

I’ve been remise and I apologize.  I should also apologize to myself because this book has been out for 3 days and that’s three less days that I’ve been without it.

I haven’t read it yet, but I just know that it’s going to be utterly perfect.  Really hit that spot, you know what I mean?

Don’t be like me, get this book now. It’s currently on sale for only 99¢. You might be asking yourself if it’s worth it for only 55pgs.  Yes!  Don’t even think about it, just get it, along with all of the others in the series, you won’t regret it.  There have only been three books so far.  Each new one that has come out, makes me more excited for another.  I can’t get enough of Wolfe.

 

Red & Wolfe, Part III: An Erotic Fairy Tale – [Kindle Edition] 99¢
Return to Rabbit Island with Red & the illusive Rafe for the hottest serial installment so far. I’d bring at least two pairs of extra panties if I were you.

(Bold print: This is a book for adults. Mature adults not easily offended by smut-tasticness).

*IMPORTANT NOTE: This novella is .99 this weekend only. Then the price moves up to $2.99.

 

Sweet (& cheap) Addiction – Maya Banks #99¢

Every morning I check my multiple Amazon Wish Lists to see if anything has reduced in price… I like deals, what can I say?

Today was a good one:

Sweet Addiction – [Kindle edition] .99¢
He awakened a need within her. But now she belongs to another…

Cole is successful beyond his dreams. He can have any woman he wants, but there’s only one he can’t stop thinking about: his childhood sweetheart, Renita. He’s never forgotten his first taste of innocent love and the desire that consumed them-or the pain he brought upon her…

Her long-ago brush with submission awakened a longing in Ren that drove her to walk the darker edge of desire. She has become a beautiful woman at ease with her sexuality and unapologetic about her need for a dominant man. When Cole finds her again, he’s gutted that she belongs to another. Ren’s current master agrees to give her to Cole for a short time, but then she must return to his keeping. And though Cole agrees to this bargain, he knows he will never be able to let Ren go again…

I’ve read only one series from Maya Banks before (The Breathless Trilogy) and while I didn’t like all of the books, I thoroughly enjoyed Rush . There was just something about Gabe Hamilton!

This book was previously $9.99 and while I am not opposed to spending money on books, I just can’t spend $10 until I know for sure that I a). will like the writer or b). like the story.  I know when reading it’s kind of hit, miss and luck of the draw.  But as much as I like to read, I have to be fiscally mindful of how much I spend.  So anyway… when I saw that this was only 99¢, I didn’t even think about it!  Which is also why I wanted to be sure that I let everyone know that this book was on sale also.  If you’ve never read a Maya Banks novel, now is your chance.  Even if you end up not liking it, are you going to be mad that you wasted a dollar?  Well you might, but that’s besides the point.

A Demon & His Witch – Eva Langlais #review #book

Have you ever read a book and was just pleasantly surprised?  That was me just the other day as I read this wonderfully funny story of a Demon (Remy) and his Witch (Ysabel)…

A Demon And His Witch (Welcome To Hell Book 1) – [kindle edition] FREE for a limited time

Free for the month of June ONLY.

Burning alive is nothing compared to the heat of his touch.

There are better ways to break up with a girl than having her roasted at the stake as a witch. Is it any wonder Ysabel has trust issues? She got her revenge, though, and it only cost her a slightly tarnished soul.

Working for Lucifer isn’t all bad, until her ex-boyfriend escapes the bowels of Hell and she’s forced to team up with a womanizing demon to fetch the jerk back.

As a minion in Lucifer’s legion, Remy’s seen a lot of things, but nothing can prepare him for the witch with the acerbic tongue – and voluptuous figure. The more she pushes him away, the more determined he becomes to seduce her. However, what’s a poor demon to do when he accidentally falls in love and wants to keep her forever?

Welcome to Hell where you’re screwed if you do and damned if don’t. And just so you know, Lucifer has a special spot reserved for you…

As a reader of erotic novels I am not typically interested in paranormal stories.  I guess I enjoy a sense of realism when I read my fantasy.  This however proved to me how wrong I can be sometimes.

I didn’t know what to expect when I started reading this.  Without knowing, I thought that this was going to be a stuffy read.  I picked it because it was short (a mere 158 pages).  I figured that I could power through it even if I didn’t like it.  As it turns out, this could have been longer and I would have been equally pleased with it.  It was such a fun light read.  Both of the main characters were equally entertaining.  In fact, all of the characters were thoroughly entertaining.

Remy our resident demon is a self-professed player.  He loves women, women love him.  Except Ysabel, but then again she hates all men.  His arrogance is beyond amusing

“Touch my balls with harmful intent and you’ll be tea-bagging them,” he warned. Stymied she had to ask. “What the hell does that mean?” An enigmatic smile graced his lips. It made more than her sex tingle, her tits joined the game too, hardening into points “Why don’t you touch them and find out?” “Pig.”
“I prefer the term rutting beast.

I mean really, he just made me laugh.

what is your type? No wait. Let me guess. Hard, plastic coated and jammed full of big D batteries.

and it was constant from beginning to end. He was just so funny.  Sometimes this can ruin any type of romance for a character, but the development in his relationship with Ysabel is so natural, that the moments when he is sweet, you forget about how much of cocky bastard he is.

Ysabel who is singularly motivated throughout is one of the most fun female characters I’ve read in a while.  She starts out bitter, stuffy and I thought a little unlikeable, though with good and understandable reason, but as she begins to soften towards Remy, you really begin to soften towards her.

I wish I had quotes for you, because she has some wonderfully dirty thoughts at times and her quick wit and come backs to Remy left me laughing out loud.  She was just so funny.  They all were.  It makes me want to read the entire series, which I am considering getting as soon as I can.

While there really isn’t a lot of sex in this book over all, the chemistry between Remy and Ysabel makes you feel as though there is.  They have quite a few moments of build up which is more than adaquet and while I wanted them to have more sex, truthfully it would have just been filler.  Yeah I can’t believe I said that.  I didn’t want more sex.  Who am I?

So, now I’m thinking about trying other books from this author.  Me, a paranormal reader, I would never have considered it, but after reading this I have to admit; I am intrigued.

 

 

Members Only – Books 1 & 2 #reviews

So it’s been a little busy these last few weeks and I haven’t had time to post as much as I would like.  That doesn’t mean that I’ve stopped reading.  I have been, albeit slowly .  The pace was a little slow the past week due to an out of town vacation, but I’m back at it in full force as of yesterday evening!

I recently completed, the below books. Both have heavy BDSM themes along with romance with ménage themes.

Together in Cyn: 1 (Members Only) -$6.75 [kindle edition]
Members Only, Book One – MFM
She knows it’s wrong. Cyn shouldn’t have feelings for fraternal twins Jared and Chris, her best friends. She shouldn’t want them to tie her up or strap her down, to take her one at a time—or together. The only way to control her taboo desires is to write them down and lock them away in her diary. Guys like Jared and Chris could never be interested in someone like her, or in the kind of sex she craves.
But Jared and Chris have read her diary, and sweet little Cyn is in for the shock of her life. The brothers not only own a members-only BDSM club, they want her. Need her. And now, with their unlimited funds and an entire establishment devoted to fulfilling her darkest pleasures, they’re going to claim Cyn for their own.
Inside Scoop: If you have a kink, this book probably has it too. If you like your ménage romances extra hot with a side of male-male romance, spanking, voyeurism and girl-on-girl action, come and get it.
A Romantica® BDSM erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave

This is truly a smutty read from beginning to end. Thoroughly enjoyable. I like these stories published Ellora’s Cave. Each one that I’ve read has been really well written and the story just comes together nicely.
This story was really well paced throughout and while the concept of two brothers being with the same woman at the same time, is a little lost on me. I just really liked it.
Initially I was worried that both brothers were going to be similar in personality, but towards the end there are differences that are made evident, which I really liked. I would have struggled if they had essentially been the same person in the end.  Overall this was a nice surprise.

Haleigh’s Ink: 2 (Members Only) – $5.75 [kindle edition]
Members Only, Book Two – MMF
“Haleigh’s Ink.”

A three-letter word that meant different things to many people. Pictures and words that might stand as a reminder of love, loss, rebellion, or camaraderie. For Haleigh Grace, it meant freedom.
Walking through the doors of the tattoo parlor, Inkfluence, marked the start of taking her life back. Making it what she wanted it to be. No one was going to tell her she couldn’t. Not ever again.

Little did she know that behind those doors stood Kyle Muse. He’d been her best friend, who had walked away years ago without a backwards glance. The one man she fantasized would someday be her knight in shining armor. The one she’d saved herself for.

But he has a knight of his own. Tall, dark and dangerously sexy Scott Preston. The owner of the very shop Haleigh has an appointment with at midnight.

Feelings long-buried rise to the surface and the three find themselves bound by more than just ink…

A Romantica® ménage BDSM erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave

Now this story, I didn’t care for too much. I don’t know what it was about it, but I was actually a little bored with it. I don’t know what it was about it, but I just could not get into it. Not to say that this isn’t filthy as fuck, because it is. For that alone, I would consider it a decent one-handed read. Beyond that though, something about the story just didn’t work for me. It was a shame too because I was really looking forward to reading it when I purchased it. Maybe I shouldn’t have waited so long between the time of purchase to actual reading.
I liked one of the lead characters (Scott), but I think that it was Kyle that I had the biggest issue with. He just really annoyed me, the entire time. He seemed useless even when he wasn’t supposed to be. Had he been a stronger character, I think that I would have been more interested. Maybe.

There are a couple of other stories in the series, but I think that I am done with Member’s Only.  I doubt though, that these will be the last Ellora’s Cave books that I read. Yeah, I didn’t like Haleigh’s Ink, but I did like what it offered me.  And this certainly won’t be the last Jennifer Kacey book that I read.  She can write a filthy scene like nothing I’ve read before (well, that may not be completely true, but damn).
