Review –

If you’re a fan of dark romance, Deliver is definitely a book you should add to your list!!

It’s dangerous, suspenseful, very dark,  erotic, and at it’s heart, it’s a love story. I’m not going to lie though, it definitely made me uncomfortable at times but that’s kind of what you should expect from a darker romance so again, in every way, this book delivered.

Please pay attention to the content warning on the blurb though. This book is not for the faint of heart but underneath everything, it was the story of what happens when good people are put into terrible situations. It shows their true colors in the face of dangerous and sometimes deadly situations. In this case, it was about one man’s care for a woman who had stolen him from his life, violated him, subjugated him to cruelty and despite it all, he was still determined to save her from a life not that different from his new one.

When reading you thinka story about  human trafficking for sex BUT it was so much  more. There is a giant twist and it changes everything.  I didn’t think Josh and Liv had a chance in Hell but believe it or not there is a HEA. That shows what a good author Pam Godwin is. She was able to pull hope from chaos.

Very good read but very very dark. Reader BEWARE.

 

Dirty Girl (Dirty Girl Duet #1) by Meghan March

Book Description:

Published: May 17, 2016

Format: Audio/Audible

From USA Today bestselling author Meghan March comes a sexy new spin-off duet from The Dirty Billionaire Trilogy. Are you ready to get dirty again?

Desperately seeking rich, famous, single guy with a giant cock to make my lying, cheating, should’ve-been-born-dickless ex-boyfriend realize what he’s just lost.
Oh, and I give great head. Just sayin’.

No man in his right mind would answer that ad.
Except thousands did.
My name is Greer Karas, and I should never be allowed near another bottle of booze again. Because when I drink, my friend and I do stupid things. Like take a page out of my older brother Creighton’s playbook and post something completely asinine on the Internet. Waking up with a giant hangover to find my humiliating personal ad has gone viral is not my finest moment.
Cue my look of shock when one of Hollywood’s hottest new bad boys, Cavanaugh Westman, comes knocking at my door and drops his pants to prove that he does indeed have a giant cock.What he doesn’t have is an explanation for why he disappeared from my life without a word three years ago, only to show up on the big screen two years later, killing bad guys in action flicks.
And now he wants me again.
What the hell do I do now?

Review –

Seemingly the story of a poor man wanting to woo a rich girl but not doing it until he can be on the same level, financially, as she is. But, it’s so much more.

Cavanaugh is so HOT,sexy and dominant and being read by Sebastian York, some parts were almost too much for this old girl to handle. (I said Almost!)

Cav is not who he says he is and we  find this out on the very last sentence of the CLIFFHANGER ending. So, of course, I’m going to HAVE to listen to the next installment.

One surprise about this book that I didn’t know about before listening is that this is a spin-off from the Dirty Billionaire Trilogy, the one with Creighton and Holly, the Country Western star, so Creighton’s character plays a minor but very important part.

Loved it. BLAZING hot sex scenes read by Sebastian York make this book a win-win!

 

Dirty Pleasures (The Dirty Billionaire Trilogy #2) by Meghan March

Book Description:

Published: December 29, 2015

Format: Audio/OverDrive

I did it. I married a billionaire.

My reasons are my own, but the last thing I expected was to feel owned.

I may have taken vows, but I’m still determined to be me.

Now his rules are taking over my world, but I’m not the kind of girl to just obey.

There’s only one problem: I might actually be falling for him…

I have no idea how this marriage is going to go, but holding onto a piece of myself while succumbing to his dirty pleasures is shaping up to be the ride of a lifetime.

Review –

I still don’t like that one of the main characters is a Country Western star,(just not my thing) but with Sebastian York narrating the male ‘s part, I listen to it gladly.

There is definitely a lack of communication between husband and wife and that’s what causes most of the problems in this book. That, and the fact that Creighton seems to think he can buy problems away, like Holly’s record label -which she knows nothing about).

All in all I liked it a bit better than the first one but I still only gave it three stars.

Review –

OMG!!!!!

This book is so HOT!

Lily and Anderson are supposed to be spending their 15th wedding anniversary in Italy but Anderson puts work first and stays behind. Lily isn’t happy in their marriage. They are in a sexual rut. Anderson refuses to try anything new or the least bit kinky.

She’s having a drink in a bar and notices a very handsome man staring at her and she can’t help but stare back. The bartender places a drink in front of her from the sexy gentleman and she drinks it (of course).

On leaving the bar and walking back to her hotel she realizes she is very drunk, but NEVER does it enter her mind that she might have been drugged.

The handsome man speaks to her in an alley and tells her “you are mine” and she blacks out and awakens naked, blindfolded and gagged with her wrists restrained as well as her ankles.

The handsome man tells her is going to use and abuse her in ways that her husband would never dream of.

Lilly is appalled that she is turned on my the dirty talk coming out of this man’s mouth but SHE IS.

Everything he does to her, breath play, hot wax, ice, leather gloves, (you’ll have to read the book to find out how the handsome man used those in a sexual way) anal play etc. are the things she has fantasized about doing with her husband.

After awhile r=she realizes there is another man in the room. He is called Marco by the handsome man and he just watches. At least that’s what he does for a while. Soon the handsome man tells her that Marco has been the one calling the shots. After that things get real KINKY. There is DP and sex in other asunder positions all night and into the wee hours of the morning until she is finally begging them to stop because having just one more orgasm is going to kill her.

She wakes up a few hours later in HER hotel room and because she is so sore she had barely move, she remembers what took place the night before and she is ashamed.

So, to make a long story short – Her husband, Anderson, calls her that morning to see how she is and of course she is feeling horribly guilty for being abducted, having sex with strange men and enjoying it. She tells him she is coming home early and flies home. Once there she is a total mess and debates telling him all about it but decided not to.

She does tell him the she loves him so much but that spicing up their sex life would make things even better.  He agrees and goes to shower and his phone rings.  She answers and it’s the hotel where she stayed in Italy and they have the bracelet she lost. She finds out the man was calling for MARCO so now she knows that her husband was MARCO, the other man in the room calling all the shorts, and  had given her the fantasy of a lifetime as an anniversary present and she knows in her heart they are going to be just fine from here on out.

Fantastically sexy read.    FIVE STARS *****

Dominated (The Enforcers #2) by Maya Banks

Book Description:

Published: May 3, 2016

Format: Audio/Audible

To save her, he had to betray her…

In Drake’s shadowy world, his enemies would exploit any weakness he had in order to bring him to his knees, and so he’s never allowed himself to care about anyone…never exhibited any vulnerability, and it made him a force to be reckoned with. Until Evangeline—his angel. A woman who slipped past his defenses like no one had ever managed. She was his to protect and ultimately, to do that, he had to do the unthinkable and drive the only good thing in his world away.

But he will stop at nothing to get her back…

Devastated and destroyed, Evangeline doesn’t know what made Drake turn on her in such a shocking manner. She only knows she’ll never be the same. He once freed her from all her inhibitions, only now she is a prisoner to never-ending pain. But when Drake finds her again, she realizes there is more to his world than she ever imagined, and she must decide if she can once more trust—and submit—to the man who holds her wounded heart in his hands. And he must convince her of just how far he’ll go to regain her love and forgiveness.

Review –

Drake is dominant, powerful, alpha male feared by many and he’s surrounded by a group of other alpha males whom he considers to be brothers and enforcers. Drake prides himself on having no vulnerabilities or weaknesses, until he loses Evangeline in a bid to protect her.

Drake was going to hold a meeting at his apartment with unsavory men from a mafia-like group and to make sure Evangeline was no where around because if the men saw the way he looked at her they would see how much she meant to him and could use her to get to him.

Evangeline had no idea of the seriousness of this meeting and decided to surprise him by hosting it for him and when Drake came in with the other men in tow he about died. He had to think quick so he demeaned her with every foul word he could think of and treated her as if she were a prostitute off the street. Drake moves the meeting to his office and Evangeline packs a change of clothes and leaves. Her plan is to regroup before heading home, but Drake turns New York City upside down in his desperation to locate her. Drake’s men, especially Silas and Maddox, are also devoted to her.

Their relationship has had its ups and downs and while  Evangeline forgives Drake, she’s still not entirely sure of her place in his life. She also knows that there are many things that Drake isn’t telling her, such as the nature of his businesses. They do reconnect as he encourages her to voice her fears and concerns. Evangeline also challenges Drake to provide the domination she’s come to crave.

I won’t go into any spoilers but suffice it to say there is a HEA and it is a white-hot read/listen.

The next book in the series is KEPT and it is about Silas. I can’t wait to start it. He is a big, brooding, quiet man who is sexy as Hell!

Separation Games (The Games Duet#2) by C.D. Reiss

Book Description:

Published: January 3, 2017

Format: Audio/Audible

These are the unbreakable rules in the game.
Stay collected. Compartmentalize. Think your next move through. Never let your heart dictate your tactics.

The heart is impulsive.
The heart makes bad decisions.
The heart doesn’t see the long game.

Because the heart may have decided to get Adam back, but when the endgame comes, the heart’s going to be the first thing to break.

Review –

This book takes up where the other left off.

Adam  has discovered that by breaking Diana sexually and making her submit to him, he now doesn’t love her in the same way. He has never been able to love a submissive.

The tables have turned and now Diana is the one trying to put their marriage back together and Adam is the one walking away.

This installment is mostly told from Diana’s point of view. I felt for her on so many levels, her desire to get back what was once hers and now out of her reach. I felt her pain, but I also felt how strong she was and how determined she was to put it all on the line in order to finish the game she started. Only Adam and his sadistic dominance could satisfy her and she HAS to get him back.

Towards the end of the book we get to see things from Adam’s POV and see what was hiding in his heart and thoughts and once again he held his position of perfection. A man who is out to right his wrongs once and for all no matter the costs. I simply adore EVERYTHING about him.

Adam tries to use sex to keep Diana at arm’s length while Diana uses sex to communicate where her words fail. The sex (and there’s a lot of it) is electric, inventive and off the charts HOT, and you will  never look at LEGOS the same way again.

The end of Adam and Diana’s journey is almost like a drop after sub space as you process everything. Aftercare is a must!

And I can’t explain with enough words how great this was and how happy the development through the whole book made me and those few last chapters in particular * SWOON*

Five Stars *****

Mr. O by Lauren Blakely

Book Description:

Published: May 2, 2016

Format: Audio/Audible

Just call me Mister O. Because YOUR pleasure is my super power.

Making a woman feel ‘oh-god-that’s-good’ is the name of the game, and if a man can’t get the job done, he should get the hell out of the bedroom. I’m talking toe-curling, mind-blowing, sheet-grabbing ecstasy. Like I provide every time.

I suppose that makes me a superhero of pleasure, and my mission is to always deliver.

But then I’m thrown for a loop when a certain woman asks me to teach her everything about how to win a man. The only problem? She’s my best friend’s sister, but she’s far too tempting to resist–especially when I learn that sweet, sexy Harper, has a dirty mind too and wants to put it to good use. What could possibly go wrong as I give the woman I’ve secretly wanted some no-strings-attached lessons in seduction?

No one will know, even if we send a few dirty sexts. Okay, a few hundred. Or if the zipper on her dress gets stuck. Not on that! Or if she gives me those f*&k-me-eyes on the train in front of her whole family.

The trouble is the more nights I spend with her in bed, the more days I want to spend with her out of bed. And for the first time ever, I’m not only thinking about how to make a woman cry out in pleasure –I’m thinking about how to keep her in my arms for a long time to come.

Looks like the real Adventures of Mister Orgasm have only just begun….

**MISTER O is a standalone romantic comedy and it follows supporting characters first introduced in BIG ROCK** (Which I have not read)

Review –

“They say men have sex on the brain 99.99 percent of the time. You’re not going to catch me trying to dispute that…In my case, though-and I suppose, in my defense-sex is part of my job.”

Well, heck, Lauren Blakely, when your main man opens with this statement, where can things go but up?

The author  has artfully delivered another wonderful friends-to-lovers story, complete with characters that I wish I could actually spend time with, sizzling chemistry and a feisty cat named Fido.

Nick Hammer (yes, that’s his real name, thank you very much), cartoonist extraordinaire, and master of giving women orgasms beyond description,  has fallen for the sister of his best friend and he knows that’s taboo.

But, when red-headed Harper, a magician by trade, asks him for help in the dating department he can’t say “No” and as time goes by and he developed more than sexual cravings for her, he knows he’s done for.

Fantastic book, sexual tension with humor thrown in. Perfect!!!!

I have not read or listened to BIG ROCK, but I’m thinking I’ll have to add it to my SBTBR list. (Smutty Books To Be Read)

Mastered (The Enforcers #1) by Maya Banks

Book Description:

Published:December 29, 2015

Format: Audio/Library Book

What he wants, he takes with no remorse or guilt.

She stood out in his club like a gem, unspoiled and untouched. A lamb among wolves, she clearly didn’t belong. Drawn to her innocence he watched as she was surrounded by men who saw what he did—but no one but him could touch her. He summoned her to his private quarters. He sensed her fear. He also recognized the desire in her eyes. And he knew she wouldn’t leave before he possessed her. She had no need to know his secrets. Not until he had her under his complete and utter control.

What he wants, she isn’t sure she can give him.

The moment he told her want he wanted, she couldn’t resist. Instinct told her to run, but her heart said stay and walk the fine line between pleasure and pain. Though she wasn’t sure she could ever completely surrender, the primal part of her wanted to try, even knowing this man could break her in ways she never imagined. Because once he possessed her, he owned her and it would be too late to turn back. She can only pray that he doesn’t destroy her in the end.

Review –

Mastered is the first novel–and an emotional roller coaster–in a new erotic series by the very talented Maya Banks. If you’re a fan of really getting into a character’s mind while going on a journey of the heart, I think Drake and Evangeline will have you intrigued.

Evangeline  was unsure of herself, doubted her good looks and her  sex appeal, but knew she was a loyal friend and would protect those she loved. Drake started off all bad-ass alpha so it was a rocky beginning, but he turned out to be such a tortured character.

In the book we spend a lot of time  in Drake and Evangeline’s heads. This had a big psychological element to the plot, both with how the main characters evolved and with how they were becoming accustomed to their Dominant/submissive relationship. Drake realizes that “his angel” isn’t like any of the other women he has had before. She doesn’t want gifts of jewelry, money, or expensive clothes. All she wants is his trust and his time. Evangeline is naive and has no clue of Drake’s “other” business, aside from the sex club and he means to keep it that way.

What he has to do at the end is horrible for both of them, but especially Evangeline. All the faith, trust and respect that Drake had given her is forever shattered. 

The book ends with a cliffhanger but I’m lucky enough to have it queued up and will be listening to it very soon.

Fantastic book with great, completely believable characters and VERY hot sex scenes.

Call Me Daddy by Jade West

Book Description:

Published: January 13, 2017

Format: Free Digital Book

I want him to be my first.
I want him to be the one.
I want him to be my everything.

I didn’t expect to spend my eighteenth birthday stranded in the pouring rain with no way to make it home.
I didn’t expect to be rescued from the worst night of my life by the most amazing man I’d ever seen.

His name is Nick, and he says he wants to take care of me, says he’ll look after me, says I don’t need to be alone anymore.

He treats me like a princess, like the fragile little girl he saved from the cold.

But I like him… I like him like that.
I’ve never liked anyone like that before

And it’s weird, this thing we have…
It’s like I can’t decide how we’re supposed to be… what we are…
Until he says the words…

Call me Daddy.

Review –

The only thing I really liked about this book was the cover, but to each his own.

Although I read erotic/contemporary romances, or SMUT as my husband would say, this is the first book I’ve read that dealt with the DDLG relationship, and it was too much for me.

While the story was written tastefully and the sex wasn’t over the top I still found it “icky”( I’m using a word from the book)

Thankfully, for me, the book did end with a more “normal” relationship between Nick and Laine but I still rated it a two on GoodReads.

If you aren’t turned off by the DDLG concept then you should give this one a try, but for me I plan to steer clear of any more like this.

With You (Torn Asunder #0.5) by Nashoda Rose

Book Description:

Published: December 20, 2013

Format: Free Digital Book/Second Reading

Sculpt is an illegal fighter.

He’s also the lead singer of a local rock band.

No one knows his real name.

And from the moment I met him, he made me forget mine.

In order to convince Sculpt to give me self-defense lessons, I had to follow his one rule—no complaining or he’d walk. I didn’t think it would be a problem. I could handle a few bruises. What I hadn’t anticipated was landing on my back with Sculpt on top of me and my entire body burning up for him.

I tried to ignore it.

I failed of course. And having a hot, tattooed badass on top of me week after week, acting completely immune to what he was doing to my body—it was frustrating as hell, so I broke his rule—I complained.

Then he kissed me.

Author’s Note: This novella is Sculpt and Emily’s beginning and how they met. It is an extra and not required to be read before “Torn from You”. Their story and what happens to them is the novel “Torn from You”.

Review –

I first read this book in January 2014 and loved it then and now that I have read more erotic romances/contemporary romances and have a better understanding as to what makes up a great ER/CR I love it even more.

Sculpt, whose real name is Logan, is an MMA fighter and a member of the rock band, Torn Asunder. Emily wants to learn some self-defense moves and choose Sculpt to be her teacher. For five weeks he teaches her what she needs to know and doesn’t make a sexual move on her, but then he does and everything changes.

Emily has never had a boy/man pay attention to her as Sculpt does or treat her the way he does. She gave him her virginity and he tells her he love her and that she belongs to him and the next thing she knows she’s kidnapped and being tortured and sexually humiliated in a dirty basement. END

Hows that for a CLIFFHANGER ?

In the next book, Torn From You, we find out that Sculpt/Logan is working for a human trafficking/sex slave ring in Mexico and it’s his job to break and train the women as submissives so they can be put on the auction block. Raul, the boss, allows Sculpt to keep Emily as long as he wins MMA fights. Emily can’t wrap her head around the fact that he used her the long time and now is responsible for her torture and sexual abuse.

The series is well worth reading and though the mood is very dark and things look seemingly inescapable Logan and Emily do get their HEA at the end.

This is a great ER/CR series.
