#Women.

I fuck them. I use them. I pay them off. I find another. My demands are never denied. My contracts are always signed. They submit to me. Willingly. Completely. Temporarily. This is how it’s always been.

Until I saw that filthy tweet.

@VaughnAsher My bare pussy. Your tongue. #ThingsIThinkAboutToGetOff

“FilthyBlueBird” thinks she can tease me with hashtags and then hide behind a Twitter handle? She thinks I wouldn’t be more than happy to #RockHerFilthyWorld? She’s wrong.

Her online fantasy is about to collide with her public reality, and it’s about to happen… now.

THIS IS A SERIAL NOVELLA
THAT MEANS ALL ENDINGS ARE CLIFFHANGERS
THIS NOVELLA IS ABOUT 150 PAGES LONG
THIS IS PART ONE OF SIX
BOOKS ARE RELEASED EVERY TWO WEEKS

Woah! Why haven’t I read anything by J.A Huss before? I’m not including the book in Bend, because I don’t remember that story. Maybe I should not admit that, but fact of the matter is, I don’t. This though, is going to stick with me. I’m not even sure I want to review this yet, but 6 novella’s will be a little juggling on my part so let’s see what I can tell you about this book without really telling you anything at all.
Before the book even started the premise had my attention. I should have known that there was going to be elements of BDSM just from the first few lines. Contracts, submission, but somehow I was still surprised. In the best possible way of course.

Then there was the whole Twitter aspect. I’ve been consumed with twitter these past few weeks so the fact that there is an entire story with twitter as a component of the story, really drew me in even more. And who doesn’t want to have a steamy encounter with the celebrity of their dreams. I have a short list of actors that I would love to have the very encounter Grace Kinsella has with Vaughn Asher.

What makes this book fun is that Grace wants nothing more than to have Vaughn, but not so much that she just throws herself at him, be damned the consequences. She challenges him and questions him at every turn. Not at the cost of turning him away, but drawing him even more, which is what I think draws in the reader.

Vaughn, a man who knows what he wants doesn’t really seem to know what he wants when it comes to Grace. Tiny little things that happen throughout, make me wonder where his feelings lie and I guess that’s the point. How does he really feel about her? Will he ever get what he wants from her and will Grace allow it. My hope is that they both do. I’m already anxious for book two and I can’t believe that this story is going to span 6 novellas. That is a lot of story to tell and it really peaks my interest as to where these two are headed. And if book one is anything to go by, it’s somewhere great.

Possessed by You & Perfected by You (Torn Trilogy Books 2 & 3) – J.M. Walker ★☆☆☆☆ #BookReview #Review

  

Revealed by You (Torn Trilogy Book 2) – [kindle edition] $2.99

The sharp edge of love…

Brett MacLean was possessive. Even more since I became his. He was my desire…my ultimate pleasure…he was mine.

As each day passed, he revealed a part of himself that had lain dormant. A broken childhood. A troubled man. One I was determined to help.

After months together, I thought I knew him. But soon realized I was wrong. His dark secrets were only the beginning. The past was more disturbing than I ever could have fathomed.

His deep seeded need for me came with a price that could have consequences. I needed him just as much. Because of this, we would be tested. My greatest fear was that it would take us beyond the limits of our love.

 

Perfected by You (Torn Trilogy Book 3) – [kindle edition] .99¢

An all-consuming need…
Evvie Neal was my addiction. The love I felt for her controlled me and it brought me to my knees. She was my one. My only.
Destroyed as a boy, healed as a man, she was my saving grace. The first person who knew the real me. Because of her, I became stronger. Whole. A true warrior in my own personal Hell.
As time went on, demons from my past haunted me, threatening to ruin what I had worked so hard to become. Strong.
The ultimate sacrifice was giving up a piece of myself to be perfect. For her.

I wavered so much between hating the books and tolerating the books. I ended up just hating them. Hating them because they were stupid, not romantic and mainly they were repetitious over sexed dull reads. So why did I bother reading out the series? My rational was this; a lot and I mean a lot of people were giving it high a rating. I thought that maybe at the very end it would redeem itself. It never did. It just got progressively more stupid. Of course I could be in the minority here. I should be kind and just say it wasn’t my cup of tea. But honestly I think it’s more than that; you either loved this series or you loathed it and I loathed it.

So why? Because Brett called Evvie “Lover” and it never came across as endearing. Instead it grated on my last nerve. She wasn’t lover she was “Luvah” it sounded horrible, from the moment that it started through all of the books. If that wasn’t bad enough he was always smug or smirking and very rarely anything in between. I think that I actually hate those words now. Each time I see them in another book, I cringe a little taken back to Torn.

Overall Brett just wasn’t the sweet alpha male that needed Evvie… What he needed was a Valium and some serious counseling. I found it hard to believe that his method self-control was to always be “in” Evvie. It was sick, it wasn’t sweet. He used her and not in the Dominant/submissive way. He just took whatever he needed from her. Had the relationship not developed beyond the physical I think this would have been a lot better. It was force feed down our throats that these two loved one another, but I just didn’t see it.

…and I can’t even get into Evvie, because she just really pissed me off. She represented everything that I cannot stand in my female heroes. She had no respect for herself and she often came across as week, even when she was (trying to be) strong. Her tone was whiny and nothing about her made me root for her one bit. I couldn’t have cared less about her.

It’s such a shame too, because I originally went into the books thinking that I would love them. I walked away feeling like no amount of scrubbing would remove the crap that I had poured over for days. I am so disappointed with this series, just so disappointed. I even waited a little while to post a review because I was hoping that I would feel differently about the books. Since my reading of them, I’ve read a couple of outstanding books and I think that I am more pissed off now because I waited this long to get through that shit, to get to the great reads waiting for me on the other side. Maybe the only redeeming thing about reading these books, was it made me appreciate the excellent books that I have read since. I guess I can be thankful for that. But that’s about all I am thankful for.

I can’t in good faith recommend these books. Stay away, as far as I’m concerned. If you’re tempted to read them, please don’t blame me if you end up hating them. On the other hand if you end up enjoying them, I’m genuinely happy for you. Really I am.

∞ It’s a Release Day Blitz – Reasonable Doubt 3 – Whitney G. ∞

Another book released today that everyone needs to get now! This is another series that I am utterly in love with and I can’t wait to find out how it ends because based on the two other books, it didn’t look like it was going to end well.


Reasonable Doubt 3 – [kindle edition] $2.99

I hate him…
I hate that I fell in love with him, I hate that he didn’t love me back, and I hate the fact that I just made a life-altering decision just so I could get the hell away from him.

He’d always said that he was unchangeable, heartless, and cold…

I really should’ve believed him…

☞ **Ella James is back with another Erotic Fairy Tale: Beast!!** ☜

I’m so excited about this series and now that it’s here I think that everyone should give book one a read.  The first book was utterly outstanding!  I didn’t think that I was going to like Richardo/Cal/Beast or whatever he is going by.  The fact of the matter is that he is so good at being bad.  The ante is definitely upped towards the end of part 1, so be patient if you’re wondering what the fuck is going on.  I’m hoping to get to book two within the next day or so and then we have to wait over a little under two weeks for the third installment.

Below are the links to the Amazon page where you can purchase the books.  Do yourself a favor and get them now! Book 3 is also available for pre-order. So do it!

★★★✩✩ Submissives Caught on Camera (BDSM Romance) – J.R. Luxor

Submissives Caught on Camera (BDSM Romance Book 3) – [kindle edition] $2.99

Submissives Caught on Camera, by J.R. Luxor, follows the lives of four couples in the San Francisco Bay Area who practice BDSM in their sex lives; sometimes, to varying degrees, with each other. This is the third of a series, beginning with BDSM Romance, How One Man Recruited and Trained a sub, and then Wearing His Collar, the View from Below. In Camera, the four couples decide to make a documentary video of one of their events, their sex parties. Not all of the woman of the four has sex with men other than her partner. The couples have different arrangements for their sexual interactions with others.
 In BDSM Romance, one of the men, John, met and formed a mated pair with Curi. John challenged Curi to look inside herself to see if she was a masochistic submissive personality. She accepted his challenge and took the leap. She found that she loved it as nothing before and never wanted to go back to the surface world. In Wearing His Collar, the readers learned how the sexual dynamics of the group evolve when Curi joins them. John and Curi enjoy role playing with BDSM skits in private at home, and then branch out to watch the other couples perform scenes for the group, and Curi finds she enjoys being watched when her turn comes to do a skit for them with John.
 In Camera, we’re introduced to Bridget, who is hired to shoot, direct, produce and edit their movie. Bridget is a unicorn, a female whose “thing” is threesomes with couples, either husbands and their wives or guys and steady girlfriends. Bridget refuses the group’s multiple invitations to play with them sexually, in spite of liking them as she gets to know them, because of her business ethic of not having sex with current clients. Her professionalism keeps her at arms’ length from her new friends, but the video product she produces memorializes profound observations not just about these eight individuals, but the practice of BDSM sex with multiple partners as a hobby. Curi continues the evolve in her search for her sexual dynamic niche as her BDSM role playing with John in skits for the others begins to overlap with the performance of another couple in their circle. Curi is surprised by what she discovers about herself as she finds a BFF in Lily, the collared sub of John’s friend, Michael. The evolution of Curi continues, effecting the lives and arrangements of everyone around her.

This is the first time that an author reached out to me and asked me to read a book to provide a review. It’s quite an interesting experience, I must say. I will also say that I’m rather glad that the author did reach out, because this was a good book. It wasn’t perfect, but I liked the concept and it really made me wonder how much experience the author has with this lifestyle. It was very naturally written.

But before I begin with how much I did like it, I have to get a little into some of the things that hindered me from really liking this. This story starts in the middle of a series, no problem, except I haven’t read the other books, so I felt a little lost trying to connect with characters that I had no back story to. Had I had that background, I certainly would have enjoyed them more, rather I was left feeling as though there was more going on than I understood.

There was also times when the story felt a little disjointed, transitions from scene to scene wasn’t always clear, though the scenes themselves were well laid out. If this had been fleshed out more, this would have been better. Instead, we’re moving from past to present memories with no clear indication that a transition has been made. It was frustrating and confusing at times.

What’s weird though, is that I just really liked this over all. I could actually forgive some of the editing because I was invested in the scenes. I love reading about BDSM and this felt authentic. Like the writer wasn’t trying too hard. Scenes are described naturally and they aren’t over the top, even though the “play” sequences are. If that makes sense. I felt like the Circle of Rope group, was as an actual group of people who routinely get together. I guess what I’m saying here is that this read more like a journal entry/memoir than a work of fiction. The scenes are filthy and the author has a natural affinity to write about non-consensual play which makes me wonder how much experience the author has with it. Wouldn’t I love to know?! Wink wink.

I’d really like to see the story developed more and slowed down. This could be a solid 4 stars, but right now it gets a 2.5-3.

Knight & Day – Kitty French #BookReview #Review #Eroticread #KnightTrilogy


Knight and Day (The Lucien Knight Erotic Trilogy Book 3) – [kindle edition] $4.70

Kara Brookes hates liars.

Dylan Day hasn’t told the truth from the moment his plane touched down in Ibiza.

It’s a recipe for disaster.

Romantic, emotional and intensely erotic, Knight & Day is the thrilling final installment of the USA Today bestselling Knight Series from Kitty French.

Lucien and Sophie are back, and have set up camp on the sun-drenched isle of Ibiza for the opening of the latest of Lucien’s strictly adult clubs.
They’re joined for the summer by Sophie’s best friend Kara, and Dylan Day, Lucien’s newly appointed club manager.
The laid back, smokin’ hot surf guy from California seems almost too good to be true… but there’s no smoke without fire.

It’s going to be a long hot summer of love, lust, lies and wedding bells. But who will get their happy ever after?

Knight & Day is the thrilling conclusion to the USA Today best-selling Knight erotic trilogy. Whilst it can be read as a stand alone story, it’s best enjoyed as the finale of the set.

This is another case of, why did I wait so long to read this book?

The final book in the Knight (Erotic) Trilogy, isn’t so much focused on Lucien Knight and Sophie (whatwasherlastnameagain), but rather their story blended with a mysterious Dylan Day and Kara Brooke.

The entire thing is set in Ibiza which was refreshing, for me at least, especially since it’s Ibiza season. The only down side was that it didn’t have any of that Ibiza vibe. It could have been set in Malibu, Miami or Majorca for all I cared. I usually like it when a location become a part of the story. Here it was just a place. Random beach with boat port, would have been more than enough… but I digress and it’s definitely not important. What is important here is the story and it’s told wonderfully.

Kara is a no-nonsense, says what she likes (literally at times) and has a no hold bars attitude. She’s paired with a man (Dylan) with a troubled past and rather than a cringe inducing tale of lies and hidden truths, it’s a fun romp with some self-discovery, forgiveness and acceptance.

You can’t help but like Dylan throughout even though he’s holding back, because he’s just so fucking nice.

“Go home Kara. Go home and be happy, because you deserve to be more than anyone else I know. Go home knowing that I truly fucking loved you. You didn’t get it wrong. I didn’t fool you, and the next man who loves you won’t automatically be lying to you. He’ll be the luckiest guy in the world.  Don’t run away from love because of what I did. I lied about many things, but never once about how I felt about you.”

I really felt sorry for him. I wondered why everything had to be so fucked up for him because he didn’t deserve it all. You really wanted him to just have it all out of the gate.  It also helped that he was a lovely filthy talker!

…Or maybe you want me to tell you how hard my cock is for you, and how it’s actually fucking hurting me because I want to screw you so badly?

Lucien and Sophie also have a nice little wrap up. I swear you could tell me about a long weekend with these two and I couldn’t get enough. Well, that may be more true about Lucien. Sophie tends to come across a little boring, though I know that she’s not meant to. These two deserve to have the happy ending and they definitely get it here.

I know that it took me a long time, but I’m really glad that I got to finish up the series. And if you’ve been waiting, don’t wait any more. It’s worth the money. Kitty French really knows how to write a story, so I’m really looking forward to any future stories from her.

Making Over Maris – Sabrina York ***Highly recommended read!!*** #BookReview #Review #ContempRomance

Making Over Maris: 3 (Wired) – [kindle edition] $5.78

Wired Series, Book Three

When über-nerd Jack asks Sara to make him more attractive to women, she
can’t say no–even though it’s an impossible task. He’s shaggy and doughy
and hopelessly inappropriate. He has no style or emotional intelligence
but he’s a good person. And a great friend. What Sara never expects?
Beneath all that fur and geekiness is a steamy hunk just waiting to
emerge.

Jack takes Sara’s regimen very seriously, working out and losing weight
until he feels like a new

man. He even complies with her command to shave his beard–because Jack
didn’t ask Sara to make him over so he would be attractive to other women.
He only wants to be attractive to her. They go on a series of fake dates,
each hotter and more sinful than the last. It’s not long before Sara
discovers Jack’s secret desire to be dominated and what began as an
arrangement becomes something amazing–something that could be real.

Inside Scoop: Our hero appreciates Femdom–with the right woman. Our hero
doesn’t appreciate perfect strangers grabbing his junk. Ask nicely first,
ladies!

This book was simply marvelous. I loved it from the first line to the last. I wish I could give it 10 stars, because I don’t think that I’ve enjoyed a book this much in quite a while. The story is funny and the dialogue between all of the characters is marvelous.

Oh boy! Oh, boy, oh boy, oh boy. I’d been holding on to this book on my Wish List on Amazon for quite sometime. I had a few hesitations about picking it up because of the price tag; $5.78 for a 200 page book. But, there was is a book challenge at stake, and I jumped at the chance to get it. Price tag be damned! I shouldn’t have held back. I should have gotten the book the first that I came across it, because this my friends is a marvelous story of a Geek and the love of his life. I don’t want to spoil this story for anyone because I think that everyone should read this story. If I could lend it to everyone I would. If I could have strategically highlighted every line on every page. I would. It’s that good. It’s page after page of entertaining humorous, affectionate, comical, love and romance.

I loved it from the first line to the last. The characters are absolutely hilarious. Sara who is coming off a bad “break-up” isn’t so jaded that she comes across as bitter, angry or insecure. She’s got gumption! She knows what she wants and she knows how to go about getting it.

If a guy was drop-dead gorgeous but didn’t have a romantic side, he was only good for a fuck

Generally in my reading I’m not drawn to FemDom, so I’ll be honest when I tell you that I didn’t even realize that she was a Domme until the words began to appear in the book. I guess I completely missed that part when I was reading the synopsis! It didn’t change anything for me. In fact, it was perfect. The way that she exudes her power over Jack. WOW! I could have read a lot more of that. Seriously, way, way more.

And Jack, dear sweet loveable Jack

“What the hell is that?” She gaped at the rumpled, well-worn paper.
“It’s my flowchart.”

Jack is quite easily one of my favorite book boyfriends. The only thing going against him for me and I must remember that he is not real, was that he was submissive. Had he been a Dom, I think I would have been even more immersed in the story, forever lost in a fictitious man. He’s adorable, beyond adorable. What’s beyond adorable? I don’t even know I don’t have the words, but whatever that word is, he is that.
It wasn’t even ridiculous for me to read this…

He came. Exploded. Erupted. Bliss cascaded as jet after jet of burning cum flooded from him. And all the while, she whipped his cock. Whipped it into a frenzy. It was fucking sublime.

…as I usually find it to be, because I could just imagine it. Jet after jet, sure! Why not?! Is there more? I’d welcome that too. Seriously, I’ve not ever been so enamored or engrossed. It could be that he was so oblivious to ever hint or clue that Sara threw his way. Or that it was almost like reading about a real guy (in many ways, dare I say, a little like my husband, GASP!). He was sublime and he made me want more. I need more. I know that there won’t be more, but one can always hope.

Jack and Sara’s is a story that I could read over and over again and probably enjoy it the more times that I read it. The story is simple the plot equally so and its simplicity is what makes it so enjoyable. There’s nothing overly complex happening here. They just each want what they want and you get to enjoy the ride as they get there. If you’re not rooting for these two page after page, I’m sorry there is something wrong with you.

Simply put, I would highly, highly and did I say highly recommend this book. It most definitely is a book that I would read again and again. This is, without a doubt a must read!

The book is the third in a three part series, but can be read as a standalone. I’m actually pretty glad it is part of a set, the other characters were just as entertaining as Sara and Jack. While I may not get to them immediately, they are on my Wish List and I can’t wait to squeeze in sometime to get around to them. Whenever that maybe.

Oh and my absolute final word on this book;  that book cover!  That book cover is what started it all.  Anyone know who the model is?
