Dair [kindle edition] – $2.99

DAIR (THE WILD SIDE #3) 
ARE YOU READY FOR THE TRUTH? 

I’d started writing everything about her down. I didn’t want to forget. 
The color of her hair. The depth of her eyes. The stubborn shape of her jaw. The way her lips shaped words with such expression. The way her voice made my chest ache. The way she gave advice beyond her years. 
The way she listened like she cared about every word. 
The way she made me feel—Alive. 
Every curve and hollow of her body was recorded, in my mind, and now my hard drive. 
There was a bit of truth in every lie, and even if it had only been fed to me in the smallest increments, I wanted, needed to remember the real Iris. 
Because in the end, there was one irrefutable thing that I couldn’t deny. 
Hostage or hustler, sinner or saint, whatever she was or wasn’t, whether she lied to my face or taunted me with hints of the truth, all of this seemed always to defer to the more pertinent fact at hand. 
She was mine. 
Inconceivably. 
Undeniably. 
Mine. 

After yet another shocking discovery, followed by a disturbing letter, Dair is almost certain Iris has left his life for good. He tries his best to move on. 
Easier said than done, and when an unexpected and dangerous opportunity arises for him to find out what happened to her, he doesn’t hesitate to take it. 
As usual, with Iris, the answer leaves him more lost than the question. 
Every revelation is shrouded in mystery, and every disclosure leaves Dair more in the dark than ever. 
And when finally, the messy truth is revealed in its entirety, will he be ready for it? 

This is the final installment in Iris and Dair’s story

A routine mission…

Sean Taggart is hunting a deadly terrorist, and his only lead is the lovely Grace Hawthorne. She’s the executive assistant for an employment agency Sean suspects is a front for illegal activities.

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.

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).

 

In The Company of Killers #review #series

This is going to sit in my drafts folder until I make a firm decision about whether or not I want to talk about these books.  And I do want to talk about these books, but it’s the kind of series that has some trickle effect and you can’t talk about one without giving away aspects of the other.

So let’s keep it simple; J.A Redmerski is a really good writer.  I think this is one of few books that I’ve read in a while that wasn’t littered with grammatical errors.  That’s always a plus in my eyes.  It gets at least 1 star for that alone.  The stories overall are gripping.   I like the premise alot.

Killing Sarai (In the Company of Killers) – [kindle edition] $2.99

Sarai was only fourteen when her mother uprooted her to live in Mexico with a notorious drug lord. Over time she forgot what it was like to live a normal life, but she never let go of her hope to escape the compound where she has been held for the past nine years.

Victor is a cold-blooded assassin who, like Sarai, has known only death and violence since he was a young boy. When Victor arrives at the compound to collect details and payment for a hit, Sarai sees him as her only opportunity for escape. But things don’t go as planned and instead of finding transport back to Tucson, she finds herself free from one dangerous man and caught in the clutches of another.

While on the run, Victor strays from his primal nature as he succumbs to his conscience and resolves to help Sarai. As they grow closer, he finds himself willing to risk everything to keep her alive; even his relationship with his devoted brother and liaison, Niklas, who now like everyone else wants Sarai dead.

As Victor and Sarai slowly build a trust, the differences between them seem to lessen, and an unlikely attraction intensifies. But Victor’s brutal skills and experience may not be enough in the end to save her, as the power she unknowingly holds over him may ultimately be what gets her killed.

This is their story…

Reviving Izabel (In the Company of Killers) – [Kindle Edition $2.99]

Determined to live a dark life in the company of the assassin who freed her from bondage, Sarai sets out on her own to settle a score with an evil sadist. Unskilled and untrained in the art of killing, the events that unfold leave her hanging precariously on the edge of death when nothing goes as planned.

Sarai’s reckless choices send her on a path she knows she can never turn back from and so she presents Victor with an ultimatum: help her become more like him and give her a fighting chance, or she’ll do it alone no matter the consequences. Knowing that Sarai cannot become what she wants to be overnight, Victor begins to train her and inevitably their complicated relationship heats up.

As Arthur Hamburg’s right-hand man, Willem Stephens, closes in on his crusade to destroy Sarai, she is left with the crushing realization that she may have bitten off more than she can chew. But Sarai, taking on the new and improved role of Izabel Seyfried, still has a set of deadly skills of her own that will prove to be all she needs to secure her place beside Victor.

But there is one test that Izabel must face that has the potential to destroy everything she is working so hard to achieve. One final test that will not only make her question her decision to want this dangerous life, but will make her question everything she has come to trust about Victor Faust.

I think that I just have a thing for Assassins.  In my mind they all look like this:

wp-1

and of course they walk around shirtless.

Unfortuately I don’t feel like I ever quite connected with Victor Faust, which is a shame really.  He constantly teetered on the edge of having emotions.  I was left disappointed a few times. Maybe I had it so far stuck in my mind the type of person that he was, that I wasn’t allowing him to become the person that was trying to be.   It’s entirely possibly that I blocked his character development.  I knew he was evolving, it was right there, but it just wasn’t enough for me.

I stand silent and still at the arched entryway leading into the piano room. And I watch her unlike I’ve ever watched her before. She owns me in this moment

It sounds so promising, but it just falls flat. You’re just waiting for the next cold wave of detachment.
That doesn’t mean though that I didn’t like him.  I did.  If I remove all of the romantic elements of who he tries to be, then he is a great assassin. It’s a shame to me that, that overshadows him.

One character who does develop really well across all books is Sarai. Her character really falls in line very well with the rest of the story. She was genuine and realistic. With a story like this, it would have been easy to have her bend to the will of those around her and make her weak, but she never comes across like that. In fact she is strength throughout. It was nice to have the two sided perspective (Victor and Sarai).

Now The Swan and The Jackal, that’s a whole other beast.

The Swan and the Jackal (In the Company of Killers Book 3) [Kindle Edition – $3.29]

Fredrik Gustavsson never considered the possibility of love, or that anyone could ever understand or accept his dark and bloody lifestyle–until he met Seraphina, a woman as vicious and blood-thirsty as Fredrik himself. They spent two short but unforgettable years together, full of lust and killing and the darkest kind of love that two people can share.

And then Seraphina was gone.

It’s been six years since Fredrik’s lover and sadistic partner in crime turned his world upside-down. Seraphina went into hiding and has eluded him ever since. Now, he’s getting closer to finding her, and an innocent woman named Cassia is the key to drawing Seraphina from the shadows. But Cassia–after sustaining injuries from a fire that Seraphina ignited–suffers from amnesia and can’t give Fredrik the information he desperately seeks. Having no other choice, Fredrik has been keeping Cassia locked in his basement as he not only tries to get her to recall her past–because she and Seraphina share it–but also to protect her from Seraphina, who clearly wants her dead.

But Cassia is a light in the darkness that Fredrik never believed existed. After a year subjected to her kindness and compassion, he finds himself struggling with his love for Seraphina, and his growing feelings for Cassia–because he knows that to love one, the other must die.

Will light win out over darkness, or will something more powerful than either further destroy an already tortured soul?

Fredrick’s story for me was beyond tragic. He’s likeable. Adorable even, even with all of his nasty party tricks. Many times I wanted to be disgusted by what he did, but many times over I was just okay with it. He lives the life he does because really that’s all he knows. Ultimately punishing all of the type of people that tortured and abused him. I felt like it was unfair the cards that are dealt to him. I really just wanted him to be fixed. I don’t think that I’ve ever wanted that so much for a character before. So much so that I hold out hope for a third book. I know that there is a happy ending for Fredrik. There has to be.

There are elements of eroticism in the books. They are just sparse.

You can find all three books on Amazon. Links to each book can be found above.

Book Recommendations

As you may or may not know I have a Goodreads account.  I am frequently there checking out possible books to read, organizing my book lists etc, etc, etc I am constantly adding, adding and adding more books.

I was wondering though if there was a book or books that you would like to recommend for me to read?  It’s one thing to choose books based on goodreads recommendations, but I would love to hear from like minded readers and see what you think I would enjoy.

So while I appreciate any suggestions, I’ll let you know what I don’t like or rather I’m not interested in;

Rock Stars
Paranormal
Vampires
Werewolves
Wizards

I love

BDSM
Dark Erotica
Romance
Humor

CEO/Billionaire/Millionaire
Dominants
Assassins

While I prefer love/romance to be a focus, I know that’s not always the case.  In those instances, if the book is simply good, I believe that should be enough and I’m willing to give it a shot.

So… What do you suggest?

**Spoilers** (I need more) Night Moves – Andrea Smith

 NIGHT MOVES  – ANDREA SMITH  – Kindle Edition $2.99

I want you all to read this book and revel in it’s greatness. No seriously, I was skeptical to read this, in fact the picture that is painted of one Easton Matthews is the least interesting of all “G-Men” and then something magical happens. He likes kink. No scratch that, he does kink. He does it for all the wrong reasons, in my opinion. If you’re going to be into kink, then I’m going to need you to own and love it and love doing it, to whoever your doing it to. But Easton, well he’s a little (lottle) fucked up. But it’s okay. He’s so worth it.

 
There’s a new Alpha in town . . . and he’s a Brit!

Darcy Nicole Sheridan, is 22 years-old, beautiful, single, spirited, sexy and – spoiled. She knows that about herself. Raised by wealthy (and doting) parents as an only child, Darcy pretty much coasts through life until her heart is inexplicably broken by her G-Man, Darin. Darcy doesn’t handle rejection well; she isn’t used to it.

To ease the pain, Darcy flies to Belize over the Christmas holiday fully intending to wallow in self-pity and distance herself from D.C. and the pain that originated there. Her pity party is short-lived however, after observing a very handsome, very intriguing man on the beach with a beautiful blonde. The blond gets ditched and it’s Darcy that becomes the focus of the smokin’ hot, wealthy and somewhat mysterious ‘E.J.’

Some very interesting things happen in Belize, but it doesn’t end there. Once back in D.C., there are even more surprises in store for Darcy, including a new male roommate, her best friend Lindsey’s wedding, and a surprise encounter with “E.J.” that leaves Darcy confused in more ways than one! Shortly thereafter, surprising changes are in store for Darcy’s career, love life and even a repentant Darin shows up in the mix.

Readers will get a bonus glimpse of Taz and Lindsey’s HEA and perhaps even see some loose ends tied up with respect to the Rat Bastard!

As always, this latest release of the “G-Man Series” will keep you on the edge of your seat through the laughter, tears, angst, drama and mystery. Easton is sure to be a favorite ‘G-Man’ of many in this newest release of the series! He’s an alpha like no other . . .

 

**Possible SPOILERS**

It was as though one of the worse possible things that could happen to a kid, happens to Easton.  You really want to slap his mum, you really want to kill the nanny and you then really want to give him a hug.  I completely didn’t care that he was using Darcy in part to avenge a previous relationship.  He was broken.  It wasn’t his fault.

Okay, so maybe I am wearing some seriously rose colored glasses when it comes to Easton.  But, I’ll tell you why.  This character, this man, completely and totally appeals to me.  He is dismissive, arrogant, controlling, obsessive and driven, but most of all, when he loves.  He loves HARD!  I love that in a character.   I could emerse myself in all that is Easton all day long.  I just want to add that him being British had nothing to do with it for me.  In fact I could do less of the “Love”.  It aged his character just a little bit.  But, he’s gone, now what am I to do?  I already miss his Prince Albert!!  I know that there was another mini story to I guess round out this series, but if I remember correctly Easton was barely a blip in the story.  Darcey had more of an appearance, so I won’t be going back to that to get an additional hit.  Oh well, I shall miss you dear Easton.

Speaking of Darcey, thank fuck for her right!  After navigating through Sammie and Lindsey, Darcey was like a breath of fresh air.  Before I started reading the book,  I had serious reservations of how Darcey would develop as a character.  I should have known the moment the story started that she was going to be a no nonsense, grab life by the balls type.  At every hurdle, she delivers.  She doesn’t apologise for what she likes or for the decisions she makes, she just makes them and thats the great thing to see in a character.

Her pairing with Easton is quite wonderful and it has just the type of HEA that leaves you wanting more.  Did I mention that I want more?

Always You by Missy Johnson

I was thrilled when I was offered a graduate teaching position at the prestigious Tennerson Girls Academy. At twenty-three, this would be my first ‘real’ teaching assignment. Working at the elite boarding school, home to the daughters of some of the wealthiest people in the world, was a great opportunity that I would’ve been stupid to pass up.

One week into my new job, and I suddenly had no idea why I chose high school…I was a seventeen year old boy once, I knew how teenage girls behaved.

You can’t even imagine the hell of trying to teach thirty, hormonal driven seventeen year olds who have been cooped up, away from any male contact.

I could handle the whispers every time I entered the room. I could even handle the obvious attempts at gaining my attention. What I couldn’t handle was her…

Love in Between by Sandi Lynn

My name is Lily Gilmore, and I was supposed to be getting married today. That was until I found my fiancé having sex with my sister in the church moments before I was supposed to walk down the aisle. I grew up with a father who was a womanizer and cheated on my mother every moment he had the chance. He would even stoop as low as to take me and my sister with him on his trysts when we were younger. Cheating was all I grew up with, and I vowed never to live the life my mother did. After finding my fiancé and my sister together, I moved from Seattle to Santa Monica to start a new life of independence and to focus on my passion for photography, man-free.

My name is Luke Matthews. About a year ago, I lost the love of my life, my fiancé, in a tragic car accident. There are no words that can describe how I’ve felt the past year. My life and all my dreams had died with her in the accident. I exist, and I play my guitar to try and ease the pain. My love was taken away, and I will never get that back.

What happens when the lives of two people who no longer believe in love are suddenly changed by fate?

Mature subject matter and not intended for those under the age of 17.
