~Synopsis~

Barbas, the Demon of Healing, has a secret. One he’d do anything to keep. Until the day that he meets his sworn enemy and finds himself drawn into her world. Certainly a Demon strong enough to survive being chained for a millennium beneath the Earth’s crust can resist one virginal princess when she demands his help. To reveal the truth would make him a traitor to his people. So why does deceiving the princess make him feel like a traitor to his heart?

Warning: This erotic romance novella contains sex outdoors, virginal sex, sex between sworn enemies, and lots of smokin’ hot Demon and Fae sex!

This futuristic fantasy romance series is set in the near future after a massive earthquake unleashes magickal Demons who have been trapped beneath the Earth’s crust for the last thousand years. When they burst to the surface, their energy fries all electrical systems and throws the Human world into an industrial apocalypse. In this post-apoc, dystopian world Humans are caught between the warring Demons and their mortal enemy, the Fae.

Demons and Fae draw magickal power from Human emotions. Each side gains victories and suffers defeats. But lately the Demons have been increasing in power exponentially, while the Fae are growing weaker.

But the Fae have plans to change their luck

Spice Box Title: The Kraken’s Mirror (The Kraken’s Caribbean #1)

Author: Maureen O. Betita

Genre: Hot Romance Adventure

Published Date: January 6, 2014

~Synopsis~

Captain Alan Silvestri is a man haunted by a strange curse. Good luck is his to command, but it comes at the cost of any place to call home or people to reckon as family. Resigned to die and shunned by all, he is forced to sail every three days, until he begins to dream of a special woman. Treated by our youth-oriented society as invisible and sexless, Emily Pawes is ready to move on with life. She attends a pirate festival, hoping to recapture the make-believe magic she knew as a young woman. Lucky to win an interesting bit of booty at a brick-a-brac stand, she finds herself transported by the Kraken’s mirror through a magical portal to a land of Hollywood piratitude, where swashbuckling heroes own iPods. With little choice, Emily embraces the madness. Playing pirate has to be safer than falling into the arms of handsome Captain Silvestri, right? When they meet, sparks fly, passion flares. He needs her to be free, but more than that, he needs her to be whole. Setting sail and uncertain of who actually controls the wheel, they seek ways to defeat his curse of good luck and discover the Kraken’s mirror has plans for them. Will Emily stay in this pirate haven to fight alongside him or will he lose her because of his curse?

Fifty Shades of Fifty Shades of Grey photo 19065715_zpsb156c0d4.jpg
Title: Fifty Shades of Fifty Shades of Gray

Author: Riley J. Ford

Genre: An Erotic Romance Parody/Romantic Comedy

Published Date: February 10, 2013

~Synopsis~

What happens when you try 50 Shades in the REAL world?

When accountant Ben Weaver awakens after an erotic dream, he encounters a wife who is unwilling, uninterested, and who once again has a headache. The unworldly but focused Ben decides he will do anything to rekindle his sex life, including imitating the erotic techniques of billionaire Christian Grey from the Fifty Shades series. Unable to withstand the pent-up ache radiating from his tender blue testicles, Ben decides to take Grey’s methods to a whole new level in order to relieve the pressure on his . . . er, marriage.

Shocked by her husband’s unusual plan, Kate Weaver hesitates in giving him what he desires. But for all his trappings of non-success–his ordinary accounting job where coworkers steal his sandwiches and brag about their sex lives, his lack of wealth, his inability to seduce his own wife–Ben is a man with one saving talent: the driving determination to reignite his sex life no matter what it takes. When the couple embarks on a daring and dangerous physical adventure, Kate discovers her husband’s fanatical zeal to explore all of Christian Grey’s darkest desires, with calamitous results.

Erotic, hilarious, and highly disturbing, Fifty Shades of Fifty Shades of Grey is a spin-off that will titillate you, amuse you, and stay with you until the next erotic romance crosses your Kindle.

Eternal Ever After photo 18891482_zpse80b7939.jpg
Spice Box Title: Eternal Ever After (Ever After #1)

Author: A.C. James

Genre: Paranormal Romance Erotica

Published Date: April 3, 2014

~Synposis~

His past holds a secret…

Arie Cush has a secret that he thought he’d left behind. When his past follows him to Chicago he must protect someone that reminds him of all the painful memories he’s tried so hard to forget. But when every touch from her sets his heart and body on fire–he finds it hard to maintain his aloof façade.

…that becomes her nightmare.

Holly Ellis has secrets of her own. An encounter with the handsome stranger who frequents her coffee shop reveals a vampire with baggage. Even though it might be more than she bargained for, she can’t resist the one person who understands her. But her life is in danger and a supernatural threat could reveal the underground world of vampires to humankind in this Gothic Cinderella re-telling.

Heat Level: This book is a steamy romance. It’s the development of a romantic relationship that contains more explicit language and sex. The sex is not an inherent part of the story, character growth, or relationship development, and if removed you still have an amazing plot.

Warning: This book is fictitious. The bdsm portrayed in this story does not portray the lifestyle. Vampires will be vampires. They don’t exactly stop to discuss a scene, pain thresholds, and there is no aftercare involved. Trust is an intrinsic part of the lifestyle. Use due diligence and research before deciding to make fiction into reality.

My Review

 

My Rating: 4.5 Stars

 

“She wasn’t that girl, the one who got a happy ending.”

The Bequest is an enjoyable, satisfying, and sexy BDSM romance. The author has fit a full story in just a novella, complete with relatable three-dimensional characters and an engaging plot. It’s a deliciously sensual read: a well executed combination of kinky sex and tender romance.

Sara and Cal’s story held my attention from the very first pages, and kept it the entire time. They have a tentative chemistry at first that blossoms in to so much more. She explores not only the sexual aspects of their tentative D/s relationship, but touches on the emotional issues as well. As Cal is a composer, music is cleverly woven in to the story, providing a rich texture to the entire book. I thoroughly enjoyed this couple’s story: the hot sex and tender romance, and especially watching Cal find his way in the world of BDSM, with the help of entertaining secondary characters. My only fault with the story was that the ending seemed rushed, but perhaps I was simply enjoying my time with these characters, and it didn’t wish to see it end.

This novella is perfect for a single sitting; a sexy, romantic, satisfying, and wholly enjoyable read.

*I received a complimentary copy of the novella in exchange for a fair and honest review.

5+ Star Book review: THE SAINT by Tiffany Reisz (@tiffanyreisz) @RockstarPRLC

June 29, 2014 Adult, BDSM, Book Tour, Erotic Romance, Erotica, Favorite Books 0

Dear Readers,

I’m beyond excited to share my review of The Saint with you. I have many favorites books, but the books of The Original Sinners series top that list. I have trouble putting in to words how much I adore these stories and I hope this review does this newest book justice. If you’ve read this series, I would love for you to share in the comments what you thought of the books, and what some of your favorite moments are. If you haven’t read them, I can’t recommend them enough.

Sincerely,

The Girl with the Jabberwocky Tattoo

(Yep, I really do have “Jabberwocky” tattooed on my arm and “Many / Waters” on my wrists, both inspired by The Siren.)

” ‘Never forget the lesson of the Jabberwocky’… When one is a monster, one does well to beware knights in shining armor.” -Søren, The Siren

About The Saint by Tiffany Reisz

Before she became Manhattan’s most famous dominatrix, Nora Sutherlin was merely a girl called Eleanor…

Rebellious, green-eyed Eleanor never met a rule she didn’t want to break. She’s sick of her mother’s zealotry and the confines of Catholic school, and declares she’ll never go to church again. But her first glimpse of beautiful, magnetic Father Marcus Stearns—Søren to her and only her—and his lust-worthy Italian motorcycle is an epiphany. Eleanor is consumed—yet even she knows being in love with a priest can’t be right.

But when one desperate mistake nearly costs Eleanor everything, it is Søren who steps in to save her. When she vows to repay him with complete obedience, a whole world opens before her as he reveals to her his deepest secrets that will change everything.

Danger can be managed—pain, welcomed. Everything is about to begin.

” ‘Forever,’ she said.

And he said, ‘Everything’.

The deal was done.”

When The Mistress, the final book in The Original Sinners: The Red Years was released, I didn’t want to read it. Why wouldn’t I want to read the much anticipated final book in a series I love so much? I didn’t want it to be over; and it’s not. One of the things I enjoy about the series, and particularly The Saint, is the way Reisz handles time. There is a continuity of events, but time is not completely linear. The Saint actually begins after the ending of The Mistress, but we get to hear Nora’s account of the beginning of her relationship with her priest. There are flashbacks and stories within stories, all with perfectly executed jumps through time. This book and the series as a whole is not simply a chronicle of events, it’s a rich and complicated history, it’s the connection of characters and map of crossed paths and roads less traveled. I already knew Nora and Søren’s story from the other books, just not all of the details. I knew their first meeting and those first years in their relationship would be a fantastic read, I just had no idea how fantastic.

The book has Reisz’s clever style that I enjoy so much: engrossing and compelling storytelling with an innate darkness complemented perfectly with romance, overwhelmingly intense emotion, and intelligent and well-timed wit. She blends sex and religion without apology or remorse. The characters are complex, vulnerable, flawed, yet much larger than life, bigger and better than real-life could hope to be. These are characters that are etched on my soul and words that remind me of their stories are inked on my skin. I loved getting to know young Nora (Eleanor), and learn her history, what made her who she is: sharply intelligent and incredibly strong but still sensitive. I’m always excited to see more of Søren and his many sides: the heart-stoppingly sexy priest, the sadist, and the man in love with this amazing girl. We even get to see a more relaxed Søren, sometimes funny and I daresay he even has a few vulnerable moments.

I absolutely love this book. It’s unique, contemporary and edgy, yet this sexy, perfect, forbidden, electric, and entirely unconventional romance feels timeless. It features a love story that shouldn’t be obvious and absolute, as if ordained by God or the fates or whatever the fuck anyone believes. But they simply belong together, the Priest and his young Eleanor, the sadist and the masochist, Sir and His submissive, the King and Esther. There in lies the brilliance, the intangible thing that Reisz has acheived: created an epic and all consuming tale where the reader can imagine that as “wrong” or “weird” as things may seem, nothing could be more right.

“She’d fallen in love with him the moment she first saw him, and she would love him now until the end of the world.”

5 Star Book Review, Excerpt, and #Giveaway: MADELEINE, ABDUCTED by M.S. Willis

October 28, 2013 Adult, BDSM, Book Tour, Favorite Books, Past Giveaways, Romance 0

Maddy-tour-banner

Welcome to the Madeleine, Abducted Blog Tour! Today I have my 5 Star review, an excerpt from the book, and a giveaway! Enjoy!

 

About the Book

 

She was meant to be his destruction…
A pawn played in a perilous game between
father and son…
Yet, her strength was more than either
man could imagine.
As Maddy learns to save herself…
She becomes the one thing that could
set the son free.

Madeleine Clark was raised to become a concert cellist. Sheltered and naïve, she remains hidden behind her music, a protection from the world around her. On the night of her first solo performance, Maddy accepts the admiration of a stranger and finds herself captive in a cruel and twisted power struggle between a sadistic father and his son, Aaron.

Seemingly, dangerous and uncaring, Aaron manages the business operations of his father’s estate. Wanting nothing to do with the slaves kept at the Estate, Aaron refuses to take part in the deeper depravities of his father. Despite his resistance, Aaron’s father ‘gifts’ him with a petite, brunette woman he can’t refuse.

A bond forged in conspiracy and deceit, Aaron struggles to save Maddy by teaching her to survive in the world in which he’d been raised. An unlikely union, Aaron soon learns that great strengths can exist within small packages, while Madeleine learns that love and light can exist in the darkest of places.

Excerpt

 

Finding her voice, Maddy spoke out of turn, not thinking about the repercussions her words could elicit.  “I would prefer you call me by my name.”  She peaked up at him through her lashes.  “Maddy, I would prefer that you call me Maddy.”

 Aaron stopped with his bare back turned to her, taking several minutes to finally respond, he asked, “What makes you think you are allowed to ask that?  If I wanted, I could call you slave…”  He turned to face her, the contours of chest perfectly shadowed, his strength unquestionable.  “…or whore.”  His swagger was slow as he approached her, a hunter skilled in pursuit.  “Would you prefer those names to ‘Mouse’?”

 Sucking her bottom lip between her teeth, Maddy fidgeted with her hands, refusing to look Aaron in the eyes.  She could feel his gaze touching her skin, his perusal of the woman barely half his size.  The heat of his body rolled off of him as he circled her.  It was the feeling of a soft blanket and lustful threat wrapped around her at the same time.  When the deep resonation of his voice occurred again, she cringed, fearing he would strike out at her for the incorrect answer.  “Why do you dislike the name I have given you?”

 Continuing to fidget, Maddy trained her eyes on her feet, not daring to look up into the endless green she knew stared down at her.  Gripping her under her chin, Aaron pulled her face up to look at him, his eyes searching hers for the answer to his question.  “You will speak when I tell you.”  Dropping his hand from her face, he took a step back placing distance between them.  “Now answer me.”

 Her heart pounded against the walls of her chest, her throat constricted, making it difficult for her to breath.  Fear consumed her as she stood in the shadow of the man who’d taken at least two lives that day.  Barely a whisper, her voice squeaked out the answer to his question. “Because a mouse is a furry little rodent, something detested.”

 Aaron stood thoughtful and silent above her.  When he didn’t respond, Maddy quietly added, “I guess it’s better than Xander’s name for me.”

 Laughter bellowed out, causing the toned muscles of Aaron’s broad chest to flex and relax before her eyes.  The sound of his amusement so real, it caused her to want to smile in response to seeing a piece of his mask falling away, revealing parts of him not witnessed by many people.  Containing himself, Aaron’s eyes sparkled as he asked, “And what, exactly, is Xander’s name for you?”

 A scowl creased the fine skin between her eyes, her mouth pulled into the pout of a sulking child.  “He calls me ‘cricket’…an insect.  It’s odd that you both refer to me as nothing more than a common household pest.”

 Aaron’s smile faltered as he looked down upon the beautiful girl who didn’t fully understand her role.  “No, Madeleine, you are not a common household pest…”

 Maddy looked up at him, anticipating what he would say next.

 For a fleeting second, he looked genuinely amused, but his expression was quickly replaced with indifference and contempt as he stated, “you are lower than even a pest in your role as a slave.”

 

My Review

 

My Rating: 5 Stars

“Her name is Madeleine Clark, and when she was abducted, she was not only dragged in to hell… She took over.”

I LOVED this book. From the first sentences to the ending, I was held captive along with Madeleine; taken prisoner by this story, breathtaking in its darkness, violence, and glimmers of hope.

The story’s engaging and well realized characters taught me a few things…

Never underestimate an introvert. Don’t mistake the quiet shyness of a pure, innocent, talented, and artistic woman as weakness. She may hold a strength that not only can withstand torture and abuse at the hands of evil men, but the power within herself to topple an entire criminal empire headed by a madman.

“Such bravery for a woman who faced the unknown; it amazed him to see that her heart had changed form that of a mouse into that of a lion in a matter of weeks, that her strength was enough to heal them both.”

 Conversely, don’t underestimate the emotions of a cold-blooded assassin. He may be without remorse for his killing, but he is not without the capacity for love; and that love may be the one thing that can truly guide him in his quest for power and ultimately redemption.

 “Aaron’s beauty was a wicked veil; mystifying and lulling those that looked upon him into a false sense of awe, only to have security ripped from them when they saw the menace lurking beneath.”

This book also taught me that even in places of complete darkness, there is light. The flow of the story is much like Maddy’s life in the The Estate: a bleak and horrifying nightmare, but with moments of light and hope. This book is not for the faint of heart. It has slavery, unimaginable violence, drugs, and scenes that made me cringe and squirm. But there were also moments that took my breath away with their tenderness and beauty. The book is emotional, heart-wrenching, and full of suspense and tension. The writing has a musical quality, a complement to the musician at the center of the story. This is a brilliant read, the book complete in itself, but I can not wait for more of the story.

“She is light while I am darkness…”

About the Book

Senator Maxwell Joseph has it all—money, power and good looks—the trifecta when it comes to attracting the ladies. He even has women willing to be tied up, spanked and fucked all while calling him Daddy, fulfilling his secret fantasy. On the night of his thirty-fifth birthday he finds a goddess waiting for him in his hotel room. She is beautiful, sexy and very willing, yet the fruit she offers is very forbidden. Not only at nineteen is she barely legal, but she is the daughter of his best friend and political advisor.

Mackenzie Wade has had a crush on the senator for years, and when an overheard phone call affords her the opportunity she needs to make her fantasies a reality, she jumps on the chance offering herself as a birthday gift.

Throwing caution to the wind, Max gives in to temptation and gives them both what they have been yearning for—a night filled with ropes, floggers and toe-curling sex. Although satiated, one night of passion wasn’t enough for either of them, and they began a clandestine affair.

The solid ground on which he’d built his career now began to shift as his wants and dreams for the future began to change. In what he can only describe as a landslide, Max hold on tight to the only thing that he can, Kenzie, and goes on the ride of his life, knowing all along that in the end, he may have to make a choice between the woman of his fantasies and his career.

My Review

“In the past, I’d known what I’d wanted with my pets and they had all been extremely willing and able- bought and paid for- but Mackenzie was different. She didn’t have to play by my rules, and that little detail made me want her more than anything I’d ever wanted.”

This sexy, entertaining story begins when two people seek one another to fulfill their fantasies, and before long, it becomes clear that they connection they have is something much more.

If you are completely turned off by Daddy/little girl relationships, then this book is not for you. (Keep in mind, this relationship exists between consenting adults!) But, if you’re on the fence, or know that you enjoy that particular relationship dynamic, along with spanking and SUPER HOT sex, then this book is for you. Max and Kenzie’s relationship begins with just sex, like, some “one-handed reading” type of sex, but as they begin to realize they have deeper feelings for one another, I also realized I had been rooting for them all along. I enjoyed them as Daddy and little girl, and loved the progression to Maxwell and Kenzie. But theirs is a forbidden romance, he is high powered politician and she is the nineteen year old daughter of his political advisor. But the risk seems worth it: they have it all, an amazing sexual chemistry, and a beautiful romance. But theirs is a precarious situation… will their love be strong enough?

The author does a very good job of using both main character’s points of view; I enjoyed the balance it gave to the tone and emotion of the story. This is a great book for those that enjoy a sweet and spicy read, with a bit of kink, plenty of hot sex, and unlikely but heartwarming romance.

“It couldn’t be more wrong, yet everything felt so right.”

My Rating: 4.5 Stars

 

About the Book

Book two in the Bound to You series. Can be read as a stand-alone.

After a painful past, Brian Donovan can’t afford to get close to anyone, especially a submissive. His growing lust for a certain mouthy bartender has been easy to keep under wraps, at least until he catches her snooping through his files. Spanking her senseless was not one of his better ideas. Even worse, he entices her into a relationship based on power exchange—no sappy sentiments, no messy emotional entanglements, strictly dominance and submission. He doesn’t count on Genevieve being the one submissive who makes him want to feel again.

Gen Hawthorn’s life is a mess. She’s always late for work, can’t keep a boyfriend and has a closetful of family secrets. When her gorgeous boss offers her a kinky no-strings arrangement, she can’t say no. Being dominated by the star of all her dirty fantasies sounds like what she needs. She just has to remember his most important rule—don’t fall in love.

As their affair heats up, lines are crossed, tears are spilled and they discover just how difficult sticking to the rules can be.

My Review

“Her defiance actually turned him on, which was unusual. He’d never had the patience or interest for mouthy, willful women, especially those of the submissive persuasion. Lately though, he’d grown bored an uninspired by the sweet, malleable subs he was usually drawn to. Maybe a change of pace was exactly what they he needed. Maybe Genevieve was exactly what he needed.”

This story easily brings together engaging storytelling and breathtaking erotica. The author deftly takes on sadism, masochism, and a complicated D/s dynamic with a book that is edgy enough for experienced readers of the BDSM genre but could still appeal to the newly converted.

I will admit that the beginning of the book was a little slow for me; certainly not the action, the author jumps right in to the relationship between Gen and Brian. It just seemed a little familiar: Dom looks for sub and a no emotions relationship and it seems pretty clear they will eventually develop some sort of feelings for one another. BUT, a little ways in a realized I was totally taken in by the characters, their chemistry, the burning underly emotion, and the extremely well-written BDSM sex scenes. I was hooked and along for the ride, and rewarded with a fantastic story of an intriguing D/s couple: two characters that I connected with and became emotionally invested in. Most of all, I fought for this couple: laughed with them, cried with them, and felt their emotional pain, and Genevieve’s delicious physical pain.

I highly recommend this book for fans of the genre. Fallon Blake has written a story that is original, heartfelt, emotional, AND has incredibly hot sex scenes. I will absolutely read more from this author in the future.

“The blind trust she had in him amazed him sometimes. She reveled in her submissiveness without shame. There was so much more to her than simple obedience. He had no idea what he’d seen in the mindless subs of his past. They’d obeyed without question but also without heart or soul or passion. Pale imitations of his Genevieve, every last one.”

Author Guest, Book Review, and #Giveaway: TIE ME FREE (Satin Rose Experience #4) by Sandra Bunino (@SandraBunino)

September 21, 2013 Adult, BDSM, Book Review, Erotic Romance, Favorite Books, Guest Post, Novella/Short Story, Past Giveaways 6

Welcome to Tie Me Free Book Tour! I’m super excited to share this new book today AND Sandra Bunino is HERE, sharing a fantastic “off camera” scene with the Mason, the sexy man of the hour! I started reading the Satin Rose Experience series about a year ago… and fell hard and fast. A devoted fan ever since, I’m always eagerly awaiting each new installment in this romantic, sensual, and HOT BDSM themed series. Enough about me… let’s get to our guest of honor!

 

Welcome to Tattooed Book Review, Sandra! It’s always such a pleasure to have you here. 🙂

Thanks for having me today, Gillian! I love visiting your virtual home at Tattooed Book Review! I wanted to do something a little special for your readers and you today. <3 <3 <3

This “off camera” scene gives readers a glimpse at the start of Mason’s love of older women and his desire to dominate.

Here’s a little background first:

Mason grew up poor and lonely in an orphanage in Dublin, Ireland. His last words to his mother were promises to do well in school and move to America. His hard work paid off and he earned a full scholarship to New York’s Columbia University. His quiet, brooding nature, not to mention his great looks and Irish accent, attracted the attention of Rachel Forrey, his forty-something , recently widowed, art history professor.

In this scene Professor Forrey asks Mason to stay after class…

 Mason stayed seated at his table near the back of the class as the students filed out of the room. The note Professor Forrey discreetly left on his desk, which he unfolded, read, and refolded every few minutes during the session, remained tucked into his jeans pocket. His eyes flicked to Professor Forrey as the last student left the room. She stood from her perch at the corner of her desk and walked to the door, closing it was a click.

 Swiveling on her heels, her straight honey tinted hair skimmed over her shoulders as she turned to face Mason. “Do you know why I asked you to stay, Mr. Myers?”

 “Was there a problem with my research paper?” He cocked an eyebrow.

 She chuckled softly and strode to the window. “I’ve always loved New York in the fall. My late husband and I used to walk through Central Park every weekend to watch the leaves change. I’ve been very lonely since he’s been gone.”

 The metal feet of his chair slid across the floor, grinding against hard surface as he rose to his feet. “I’m sorry about your husband. I know what it’s like to have lost someone close.” He walked to the window and stopped behind her. Leisurely, his gaze washed over her creamy blouse and black skirt, which hugged her curves, leaving little to his imagination.

 She nodded. “Did you know you can see Central Park from here? Come closer.” She took his hand and guided his index finger to the corner of the window. “See? Right there.” Her breath blew warm and sweet on his neck.

 “Professor Forrey,” he said in a husky voice. His hands itched to touch her.

 “It’s Rachel. Just Rachel.” Her finger trailed up his arm and cupped his cheek. “We have a lot in common, Mason, and there are many things I can teach you.”

 Mason encircled her wrist with his index finger and thumb, spun her around and pinned her back against the window. Their breath intermingled as he stared into her icy blue eyes full of challenge and excitement.

 “I may have something to teach you, Professor.”

*shivers* Thank you so much, Sandra!

Tie Me Free (The Satin Rose Experience, 4)

by Sandra Bunino

Release date: September 12, 2013

From Evernight Publishing

 

She’s forty and vanilla…he’s twenty-eight and…not.

Score one for Kate Angel. She’s just signed the hottest erotica author to her start up publishing house, Angel Books, but she needs a crash course in kink to appease her demanding client. Creating a Domsublife.com profile seems like an innocent way to do her homework and satisfy her curiosity.

Mason Myers has lived a lifetime in his twenty-eight years. The product of an Irish orphanage, he grew up fast to overcome his lonely, humble beginnings to become the successful businessman he is today. He’s also an experienced Dom at the Satin Rose Experience, an elite BDSM club in New York City.

A mutual appreciation for modern art establishes their online connection. Mason convinces Kate to meet him at the Guggenheim museum’s erotica exhibit where she reveals her fascination in the art of rope bondage, known as Shibari. Introducing her to the ancient art within the safety of the club, Mason helps Kate surrender her deep-seated hang-ups about her age and body image.

As the physical and emotional ties that bind her into the submissive of his fantasies tighten, can Kate learn to break the emotional tethers ruling her life and embrace the freedoms they bestow?

My Review

 

My Rating: 5 Stars

“…’Remember, you’re in a safe place, just let yourself go and enjoy the journey. You deserve it.’ “

Once again, this author does not disappoint. This installment of the Satin Rose Experience explores the ancient and beautiful art of Shibari. The story is romantic, sensual, and tinged with a burning sexual desire. The reader shares Kate’s transformation from BDSM newbie to empowered submissive, led on her journey by the achingly sexy Dom, Mason.

I adore Kate’s character in this story. She’s sassy and successful, and despite her insecure misgivings about her body, has an air of confidence about her. Even when Mason pegs her submissive tendencies, she refuses to give in right away. Her reluctance to experiment in BDSM gives the story a lovely, slow burn. The attraction between Kate and Mason is evident, strengthening throughout the course of the story, until the outcome becomes clear: all or nothing.

The result of all the build-up is a beautifully sensual BDSM sex scene, focusing on bondage, Shibari in particular. The author artfully portrays the visual and sensual beauty of the bondage, as well as the intense emotions and sexual chemistry of the characters. It’s an amazingly hot sex scene, especially for one that doesn’t involve a lot of actual “sex”.

Tie Me Free is a novella, perfect for a single, sexy sitting. The fourth book in the series, it certainly lived up to the other stories I have enjoyed so much, and I’m always looking forward to the next book in this series. I leave you, dear reader, with a little tidbit from this story that brought tears to my eyes:

“Kate had never been spiritual, but something powerful came over her and she finally understood his statements about BDSM: the lifestyle is not about ropes and knots, paddles and whips, leather and chains, it’s all about the emotional experience which binds two people.

Book Review: JACK STONE- WILD JUSTICE (The Dark Master Series #1) by Vivien Sparx

Publication Date: June 28, 2013

 

My Rating: 4 Stars

 

About the Book

Jack Stone is the Dark Master.
A tough man. A hard man – and he is sexy as all hell.
When Jack Stone arrives in the small town of Windswept, Arizona all he wants is answers. What he finds is a sexy woman with a lust for BDSM and a secret the locals will kill to keep.

 

 

My Review

A take no prisoners story with a take no prisoners hero. Jack Stone is on a mission. His sister disappeared and he has made it his sole purpose in life to find her. He suspects she has been kidnapped and is tracked in the underground world of sex slave trafficking. His quest for his sister leads him to Windswept, Arizona, a nowhere town where Jack suspect trafficking activity goes on. He blows into town and determined to get to the bottom of things, and potentially rescue two more kidnapped girls.

Fast paced, violent, exciting, and shamelessly sexy, I was glued to the pages of Wild Justice, needing to know what happened next. Jack Stone is a sexy force to be reckoned with, both in and out of the bedroom. He forges an unlikely partnership with local diner owner Lilley Pond, and their chemistry heats up the pages. She also shows herself to be an essential ally when Jack needs it the most.

The story itself is engaging and action packed, and I couldn’t wait to find if and how Jack would save the day, solve the mystery, and rescue the kidnapped girls. When his time in Windswept is over, the strong, solitary Jack Stone leaves the way he came, and leaves the reader wanting more of Jack and his quest for justice.

“She had never known a man like this, he filled her with a sense of awe. It was not only the physical strength of him, nor was it the steady confidence of him. She broke the kiss at last, her eyes wide and fathomless as she explored the the details of his face from the hard, uncompromising jaw line, to the tiny creases and marks of life that had chiseled into features around his eyes and the corners of his mouth that all seemed to heighten the effect of power an strength and determination; the face of a man who lived by his own rules, dictated his own terms to life.”

Welcome to the Truth by Sherri Hayes Book Tour! I’m so excited to share my review of the third book in this wonderful series.

 

About the Book

 

For the last two months, Brianna has discovered something she never thought she would again. Hope. After the horror of being Ian’s slave for ten months, a fate she never imagined she’d escape, it feels as if she is living a dream. She has freedom she hadn’t expected to have again, and she wakes up every morning not fearing what the day will bring.There is also Stephan. The man who saved her from the daily torture she had to endure at the hands of Ian and his friends. The same man who makes her heart race with just the thought of him. Life is good.

Outside forces are determined to conspire against them, however. When Brianna’s father shows up on her doorstep, it sends her world spiraling out of control. He brings with him new information about how Brianna ended up in Ian’s clutches, but will it make a difference? Will Stephan be able to find a way to make Ian pay for all he made Brianna suffer?

As Brianna and Stephan try to find out the truth, their relationship is tested. She is forced to face her past head on and deal with the ugly reality of what happened to her. Will Stephan’s love be enough to see her through her newest challenge, or will the fragile trust they’ve built come crumbling down around them as the truth makes itself known.

My Review

 

My Rating: 4 Stars

“Feeling her body pressed to mine, seeing the trust in her eyes, was a high I couldn’t explain. Her trust meant more to me than any other gift I’d ever been given, and I hoped I’d never lose it. She deserved everything in life, and I wanted to be the one to give it to her.”

Since finishing Need, I have been anxiously awaiting this third book in the series, and I was not disappointed.

As in the rest of the series, Hayes tells the story from both Stephan’s and Anna’s POVs, and she does a lovely job. The characters’ voices are so clearly their own. There is no mistaking whether it is Stephan or Anna speaking, their perspectives are so distinct, and yet the story still flows smoothly. The prose is uncomplicated and inviting.

Anna and Stephan’s story is one of healing, trust, and perseverance. I’ve enjoyed watching their relationship progress through all three books, and until I looked back to the first, I had forgotten just how far they have come. The path has not been easy and it will continue to be difficult. In Truth, we see the relationship deepen, the connection strengthen, and the sexual chemistry heat up. Anna is no longer the completely destroyed young woman she once was, but still depends on the security and safety Stephan’s presence provides. What becomes much clearer however, is that Stephan needs Anna perhaps as much as she needs him.

I would recommend reading the first two books in the series before reading Truth. This is a relationship you will want to experience from the beginning. It’s sensual and kind, complicated and dark, warm and safe. This is a book of contradictions: can this strict Dom really be the one to continue to heal this broken young woman, and give her everything she needs and deserves, including the truth? I am anxiously awaiting book #4, the conclusion to Stephan and Anna’s story.

*I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

**Brand New Review** Her Wish, His Command (Book #3)

*Coming Soon* His Passion, Her Temptation

 

Welcome back Malia! It’s so great to have you here again!

Malia:

I’m very excited about my new release, His Passion, Her Temptation, which is the fourth book in the Dominating BDSM Billionaires Series. His Need, Her Desire (Book 1) is currently free at most online retailers. His Desire, Her Surrender (Book 2) hit bestseller lists in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada and Australia. Her Wish, His Command (Book 3) released in June.

In the book, Monica and her brother, Marcus, take a trip to Hawaii. They are flying from New York and she arrives zonked out because she couldn’t sleep on the plane. I personally know that flying Chicago to Honolulu is a ten-hour flight. For New York, you can probably add two more hours. Ouch, right? So, what can you do to make a long flight more bearable? Here are my suggestions.

1. Pack Light. Seriously, I know this is hard, but how many times have you returned from a trip to find you didn’t even touch some of the things in your suitcase? Packing light means less to lug around and less to keep track of. On a long, crowded flight, consider checking your rollerboard so you can board with a couple carry-ons with things you’ll want for the flight.

2. Rations. We know what flights are like these days. High-priced, not so great food if they even have it. You do NOT want to get on a long flight only to find the sandwiches weren’t loaded in Newark. It happens. Bring food. Even if you purchase something on the flight, you’ll have something for later. You never know when you’ll wind up sitting on the tarmac or hanging around the terminal. Things could be closed or maybe they don’t have anything you want. Bring some non-perishable snacks. I’d advise a bottle of water as well even though you’ll probably be offered drinks on the plane. You don’t want to be dinging the flight attendant at 2 am for water for an aspirin if you can avoid it.

3. Headphones. Bring headphones for your phone or music player. Bring an adapter in case there is in-flight entertainment. You don’t need the $5 headphones if you bring your own. This is truly a flexible tool. You can use it to avoid conversation with you seatmate if you so desire. You can drown out the kids sitting behind you. You can also avoid inflicting your music or video games sounds on those around you.

4. Eye Mask. Also good for avoiding people around you J If you think you might sleep and you have trouble with the light, these are great. What happens if it’s midnight and your seatmate decided he’d like to read a magazine and puts on the light? Be prepared.

5. Entertainment. If you have a Smartphone, you might be set with music, books, games and movies. Now might be the time to spring for a few digital magazines. Download what you want in advance and make sure it is ready to go. You don’t want to find out your newest bestseller is stored in the cloud when you have no internet. Bring your eReader or your laptop or whatever will help. I really recommend the phone because it is small and light. It stinks though for movies so, do what works for you. Consider backups at well. If the person in front of you reclines, it’s possible you won’t be able to get your laptop open. No joke. Have a backup plan and a charger.

6. Dress Comfortably. Now isn’t the time for tight pants and high heels. You can be fashionable while wearing something with a looser fit. If you really need to, change in the bathroom when you get to your destination. I don’t recommend taking off your shoes and I don’t recommend changing into slippers. Your feet might swell, forcing you to disembark along a lot of dirty carpet barefoot. Wear comfortable shoes you’ll be able to keep on.

7. Bring Your Own Pillow and Blanket. There is no guarantee of a pillow or blanket being available for you. Even if you get it, it might not be clean. Bring your own. I purchased a small throw blanket cheap and it rolls up very small. I also bring a tiny pillow. I’m not a fan of the blow up kind. You have no control over how hot or cold the plane might be. You might need a sweater and if you don’t have it, the blanket will do in a pinch.

While I wouldn’t make such thorough provision for a short flight, on a longer trip you have to plan for the contingencies. You won’t be caught out if you are sitting under the air vent that won’t close. You won’t be thirsty if the crew runs out of water. You won’t be hungry if the only food left when they get to your row is a terrible, tuna sandwich. You’ll be set whether your flight is delayed or on time. Happy Traveling!

His Passion, Her Temptation (Book #4)

Granger Pharma executive Monica Granger is hiding her relationship from her family. She has to. Her lover is the son of her father’s biggest business rival. Ben Coron is more than Monica can resist; he’s everything she’s ever wanted—including dominant in bed.

But when Coron Health makes a play for Granger Pharma, Monica’s relationship—and her life—blow wide open. She loses her job, and her family rejects her. Someone’s stealing Granger’s vital trade secrets, and worse, Monica’s brother is dodging attempts on his life.

Their passion is too strong to keep Monica and Ben apart for long. They must thwart the takeover and heal the rift between their families. If they don’t, they’ll never trust one another enough to pursue the dominance and submission they both need.

His Passion, Her Temptation Excerpt

“So, do you want to eat now … or later?” Monica’s smile turned seductive.

“Well, I think I might need you first.” His hand reached to touch the silkiness of her hair.

“I agree. Food can wait.” Monica pulled his head down and kissed him, greedy to taste his lips.

Without breaking the kiss, Ben guided her out of the hallway into the living room.

Monica slipped her finger under the edge of his collar. “You know, it doesn’t seem fair that you get to call all the shots.”

“Oh? I call all the shots?” Ben’s hands roamed to her rear and squeezed.

“Yes … you decide when and how …” Monica licked the edge of his lip.

“One, that isn’t quite true, and two, I haven’t heard you complaining.” He gave her a playful pinch on the ass.

“Oh no, I’m not complaining.” Her hand moved to the front of his pants, cupping him.

“Then what?” His hands slid down to the back of her thighs.

“I thought it might be fun to … try a little something else.” She rubbed him through the fabric of his pants.

“What did you have in mind?” Ben swept his hands up her back and tangled his fingers in her hair.

Monica tilted her head back. “Do you recall that night before I left for Hawaii?”

“I do believe it is burned into my memory.”

“Sometimes I wonder if it wouldn’t be interesting to reverse things.” Monica observed his face for a reaction.

“Reverse things?”

“Oh yes.” Her finger laid a trail down the front of his chest. “You,” she poked him gently, “would do as I say.”

“I see. Are you finding you have a dominant streak?” he teased.

“I’m not sure, but I have a desire to find out.” The thought of taking charge appealed to Monica, not all the time, but perhaps occasionally.

Ben smiled. “That sounds … enticing.”

“I hoped you’d think so.” Monica walked around him, patting his ass with her palm.

“How would you start?”

“I’d tell you to disrobe for my viewing pleasure.” Monica enjoyed looking at the hard planes of Ben’s body, so different from her own curves.

“Shall I?”

“Oh, yes.” Monica crossed the few steps to the seating area and settled herself into an upholstered chair.

Ben approached Monica and then turned his back toward her. He loosened his tie and pulled it free, tossing it over his shoulder in Monica’s direction before unbuttoning his shirt and letting the fabric fall to the floor. He turned slightly and caught her eye. Monica flushed under his wicked gaze.

About the Book:

Doctor Anna Foster may just get what she wants: sexy fellow researcher Jonah Granger. She’s been in love with him for years, but Jonah has always been more interested in work at his family’s business, Granger Pharma, than romance. Now that they’ve admitted their attraction, Anna may even be able to tell him what she really wants: to submit to him.

But Granger Pharma faces a hostile takeover. Sensitive data and samples are missing from Anna and Jonah’s lab; it may be corporate espionage. Everyone is under suspicion and, and they’re even beginning to question each other. Anna must discover the truth if she’s going to save both her job and her relationship with the man she dreams of serving.

 

My Review:

Another fabulous read from Malia Mallory! A continuation in the Dominating BDSM Billionaires Series, Her Wish, His Command is continuation of the previous books, but we get new characters. (And we get to go to Marcus and Tabitha’s beautiful wedding with them!) Though it’s a continuation of the series, the story can be read as a stand alone.

The central characters, Anna and Jonah, are co-workers, scientists at Granger pharmaceuticals. Anna has always had a thing for Jonah, and when they are forced to share an office space, things immediately heat up between them. The tension is fantastic, and the reader doesn’t have to wait long for things to boil over. They share a mutual attraction and plenty of *cough* “chemistry” (haha, science joke), but the quiet and often insecure Anna has a hidden to desire to be a submissive, and the relationship challenged Jonah has no experience as a Dominant. This deliciously sexy story follows the couple as they find their way towards common ground in the bedroom. This couple seems to have a tendency towards hot, quick sex in public places; and I like it! Fantastically written, sensual, and sizzling hot sex scenes, and the prospect for a real and fulfilling romantic relationship make this a couple to root for. In a short time, Mallory easily creates relatable and complex characters and an emotional and engaging romance.

Entwining its way into Anna and Jonah’s sexy romance is the ongoing corporate espionage subplot. Important information an research is stolen from the labs at Granger Pharma, security is breached, and another attempt is made at Marcus’ life. Though the romantic story reaches a satisfying conclusion, the future of Granger Pharma, as well as the professional futures of Marcus, Anna, and Jonah hang in the balance. I can’t wait to read the next story!

*I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for a fair and honest review.
