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.
