The Devil’s Claim (Devil’s Kiss #2) by Gemma James

Book Description:

Published: July 1, 2016

Format: Free Digital Book

It’s been a year since Kayla Sutton walked away from Gage Channing. Now he’s back, and so is Ian Kaplan, Kayla’s one-time lover from her college days. Gage’s jealousy is his worst enemy, and when he thinks Kayla has chosen Ian, he sets in motion a drastic plan to claim what’s his. Only Kayla never expects him to infiltrate her heart so effortlessly, and she never dreamed there would come a day when he wouldn’t want her.

Gage believes she’s committed the ultimate sin, but will she use his mistake to finally escape the cage of his obsession? Or will she do whatever it takes to make him see he can entrust his heart to her…just as she’s already lost the core of her being to him?

NOTE TO READERS: THE DEVIL’S CLAIM is a dark romance with a BDSM edge that does NOT conform to safe, sane, and consensual practices. Includes explicit content and subject matter that may offend some readers. Intended for VERY  mature audiences.

Review –

This was offered as a free digital book, so I have not read the first one, but I think I could fill in the blanks enough to see the whole story.

There were some moments when I wanted to kick the shit out of Gage, but then he would “act normal” and I’d like him again. He was so frustrating. Evidently he’s made some changes since the first book, The Devil’s Kiss, according to Kayla. He made changes but HE did not change. He knows what he wants and will not take NO for an answer. He will just do it. Taking away Kayla’s choices once again. Kayla wants that though, I feel. She wants someone who will make the choices for her. Her mind says no, but her wetness tells a very different story. Gage is over controlling, overbearing, over-sexed,over-abusive,  over all everything, but Kayla wants him anyway.

There is a HEA but I don’t intend to read the next book, The Devil’s Wife, to see what happens to the couple because I’m afraid their future isn’t going to be all smooth sailing.

This book is very dark but I hear the first one is much darker so READER, BEWARE.


 

The Collar (Submissive #6) by Tara Sue Me

Book Description:

Published: July 7, 2015

Format: Audio/Audible

In her seductive new Submissive novel, Tara Sue Me introduces a sizzling hot new couple into Abby and Nathaniel’s world and explores the red-hot passion between Jeff and Dena that won’t be denied Fans of E. L. James, Sylvia Day, Maya Banks and Beth Kery will be seduced by New York Times bestselling author Tara Sue Me’s enthralling Submissive series.

Nathaniel and Abby West are struggling to navigate the challenging waters of their own relationship, when they get a surprising phone call from their partners in play, Dena and Jeff, who are in need of a helping hand…

Seven years ago, desperate for something exhilarating to help her escape the pressures of her carefully controlled life, lawyer Dena Jenkins joined a local BDSM club as a submissive. There she met brooding Dominant, Jeff, and, despite Dena’s doubts, they couldn’t stay away from each other. But as the years have passed, their blazing connection has proven difficult to maintain and resulted in a history they’d rather forget. To save their passion, Dena and Jeff will have to rediscover what it means to trust – and give themselves to each other completely…

Review –

Let me start with this…..OMG OMG OMG !!!!! I freaking LOVED every single second reading this book.

Dena and Jeff have a history. She was once his collared submissive, and while they seem to both lead independent lives, it is clear that neither has really moved on from the past. Their back story is an emotional sucker punch as we finally learn how they came together and the traumatic events that separated them.

Just as Jeff has finally made the decision to cut the final threads that tie him to the D/s group they both belong to and move out-of-town, he finds out that Dena has a stalker. All the old feelings are resurrected and the two try to find a way to air their baggage and find a way to work past it to be together. This is an interesting story because they’re both in love with each other and yet can’t seem to find a way to get back together, once they took the steps to step away from each other.

The signature D/s encounters that are so much a part of these stories are all there, but in many ways I find this story more emotionally enriching than some of the main stories featuring Nathaniel and Abby.  While D/s seems to emphasize transparency and honesty and absolute truth, their insecurities earlier prevented them from truly dropping all their walls. Now that they have a second chance, can they truly shed pride and insecurity and bare all to each other to forge the connection they need?

I enjoyed this story and I think the ending is beautifully done.  Clearly the next book will go back to Nathaniel and Abby and I CAN’T WAIT to see where their relationship will go next.

 

 

The Submissive (Submissive #1) by Tara Sue Me

Book Description:

Published: February 7, 2013

Format: Free Digital Book

Abby King has a secret fantasy.

New York knows Nathaniel West as the brilliant and handsome CEO of West Industries, but Abby knows he’s more: a sexy and skilled dominant who is looking for a new submissive. Yearning to experience a world of pleasure beyond her simple life as a librarian, Abby offers herself to Nathaniel, to fulfill her most hidden desires.

After only one weekend with the Master, Abby knows she needs more, and fully submits to Nathaniel’s terms. But despite the pleasure he takes in Abby’s willing spirit, the Nathaniel hidden behind the rules remains cold and distant.

As Abby falls deeper into his tantalizing world of power and passion, she fears that Nathaniel’s heart may be beyond her reach—and that her own might be beyond saving…

Review –

Abby has had a “thing” for Nathaniel West  since he had a hand in helping save her Mother’s house. The problem is that she has no experience being a sub and Nathaniel doesn’t train submissives but he decides to make an exception in her case.

Since the story is told first person, only from Abby’s perspective, I found Nathaniel pretty unlikeable, given that it seemed Abby was the only one feeling anything. But as the story unfolded, and Abby meets others in Nathaniel’s life, and we the reader get to know him, it becomes easier to understand why she would fall for him.

Nathaniel is definitely a wounded soul, and his defense mechanisms make him distant. As we learn more about his history, I found myself softening towards him. And when he and Abby have their big fight, man does he give good grovel. The sex scenes are very spicy, although the BDSM element is pretty tame.

I also read the second in the series, The Dominant, and it is the same story told from Nathaniel’s POV. We learn more about his history and why he is the way he is and if you’re wondering why there is a piano on the cover, well, you’ll just to read the book and find out.

I you like the Dominant/Submissive genre then you HAVE to check out this series. You will not be disappointed .

I can’t believe that this is my first experience with the writings of CD Reiss  but it definitely won’t be the last and let me tell you why.

Not only was this book filled with inferno hot, steamy sex but it was an emotional roller coaster ride of two people who spent years together and yet drift  apart.

Diana leaves Adam a note telling him that she doesn’t love him any more and he is beyond devastated. He has loved her from the moment they met.

At first, he doesn’t accept what she’s telling him and tries to get her to come back only to have her refuse him at every turn.

Some background  here would be helpful – Adam was a Dom and belonged to a sex club and owned a house where he would take submissive to break them before he met Diana. Diana, on the other hand, was prim and proper and totally vanilla and since he had never  been able to love a sub, he did not want to introduce her to the life style.

After years of marriage and working together Diana feels something is missing and that Adam’s head is somewhere else when they have sex. She’s right. Adam wants to be a Dominant again but loves Diana too much to bring that into the bedroom.

The saying goes, it takes two to tango. That’s because they spent years together without ever revealing their true selves. It’s difficult to love someone else if you’re not truly embracing yourself. With Adam’s fear of showing his dominance with Diana, he held so much of himself back. Denying his true self was his biggest mistake and once he regains the control he’s ignored for so long, he begins to feel free and euphoric. Dominant Adam was way intense and a major turn on!! ( and don’t get me started on the male narrator, Sebastian York and his dominant voice, OMG, he could have been reading a phone book and my blood still would have churned)

I didn’t care for Diana until the POV of the story switched to her and the reader saw where she was coming from. Each of them had things they weren’t sharing with the other and it was their downfall.

Adam proposes that Diana give herself over to him for 30 days and let him show her his Dominant side. He’s always believed he could never combine love with his dominant lifestyle. That is until he offers up this  deal to his soon-to-be ex-wife. Thirty days in a cottage together. Thirty days to return to his old self and hopefully in the process, fall out of love with Diana so that he can move on with his heart still relatively in one piece. 

Along the way Diana discovers that she IS a submissive and has been craving what a Dom can give her even though she didn’t know it, but Adam discovers that by breaking Diana sexually he now doesn’t love her in the same way.

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

The follow-up book, SEPARATION GAMES, comes out in January and I can not wait.

This book is extremely sexual, describing explicit sex and using very explicit language. Reader beware.

Submission – The Complete Set by Lucia Jordan

Book Description:

Published: August 20, 2014

Suddenly, news of the death of her estranged father comes, with the ownership of a strange business falling into her hands. But not everything is as it seems, she investigates the company only to find it deals with unusual ‘furniture’, made for the custom purpose of rougher-edged sex. To further complicate matters, Jax, a charming and gorgeous designer, is entwined in the business, and exudes a disarming sexuality.

Colby can feel an surging attraction to Jax but is she ready to enter the strange and dark world of BDSM? Is it too dangerous to get physical with a future business partner? Or will Colby’s body give in to its undeniable urges?

This ebook contains very hot and explicit descriptions of sexual activity.  Only mature readers should download this book.

Review – 

The first  free digital book ended in a super cliffhanger so I HAD  to get the complete set to see where the author took these characters.

Although there is a very strong sexual under tone to this story there is also humor. Colby had no idea what BDSM stood for or how the various pieces of sexually oriented  furniture were used. Jax was more than willing to show her the various uses and she discovered she was drawn to the life style the more he showed her. The series of books ends with a HEA and this is a series that could easily be read more than once.

Great read.

Bared (Club Sin #2) by Stacey Kennedy

Book Description:

Published: February 10, 2014

At Las Vegas’s exclusive Club Sin, Aidan Knight is the Master, unleashing the erotic yearnings of his submissive lovers. But his dominant façade conceals a devastating loss—something he instantly recognizes in his personally trained submissive Cora Adams. Sworn to unearth her secrets, Aidan uses his seductive skills to ignite her wildest desires until Cora yields to the pleasure she can find only with him.

Cora came to the BDSM club to act out her sub-and-dom fantasies without ever revealing the heartbreak that haunts her. But Aidan’s masterful touch is bringing her closer to the edge . . . and deeper into a world of control and surrender. He refuses to allow her to submit to any other man—nor does she want to. It’s a dangerous game they’re playing. For as they give in to passion, they must lay bare their souls for a love that could heal—and free—them both.

Review –

Cora is a submissive that just kind of stumbled onto the life style. She councils runaway teens in real life and needs the stress relief that being a sub gives her. It’s her time to escape the dark world she advises in and at times cries over. She falls hard and fast for Aidan, but realizes he hasn’t gotten over his past. She becomes exactly what he needs, in spite of her own needs. Protecting Aidan with a ferociously that the Doms at Club Sin think is getting out of hand. When faced with what she has become and the fact that Aidan won’t get over his problems with time, she has to decide her course.

Aidan is a very strong character, but is also lost in what he needs, wants and what is right in front of him. Cora is equally strong in her life, and then becomes Aidan’s crutch in the kink life.

There are some hot erotic scenes in this book.  They are full out erotic, painful at times, but also shows just how in tune the couple is with each other. There are some emotionally painful scenes as well, when all parties are confronted with the truths they aren’t acknowledging exist.

There are two other Doms that are Cora’s friends mostly, but they do also support Aidan. These are the men we wish were in every BDSM club. They saw what was happening to Cora and they pulled her out of the situation. They don’t let Aidan off lightly either. The make him face what he wants, needs and is willing to go after.

In the end Aidan realizes he loves Cora as much as she loves him and there is a HEA.

From the start, Presley stirs emotions in him far beyond the raw purity between a dom and the perfect sub. For the ecstasy they share goes beyond the dungeon igniting a passion that claims the very depths of the heart.

Review –

Five-star-feedback-on-oDesk

Claimed is the first book in the Club Sin series by Stacey Kennedy and I can’t believe that I’ve actually  started a new series with book one (as you know I haven’t done that for a while) I do have to admit that I’ve read two more in the series and NOT IN ORDER, so there, and it didn’t make a difference.

Dmitri is a Dom and a Master with a vulnerable side which does not take away from dominance. He’s a Vegas mogul who’s president of a casino. In his personal life he owns a mansion with Club Sin in the basement and it’s very exclusive and a well-kept secret.

Presley is coming from a breakup after 8 years with an  who cheated on her. She’s also kinda weak and wishy-washy.. I realize that this was part of the book was to have her a little weak so that Dimitri could work on this with her, but still. She could have been a bit more spunky and not such a  doormat. She has a natural tendency to please everyone and causing her to lack confidence in herself.

Dmitri is smitten with her right away and hurries her application process along, which he’s never done for any other woman, so he can start training her as a sub and as he does he finds his feelings for her run deep.

The BDSM descriptions are written extremely well and not rushed . In some book I’ve read intercourse happens in the first scene between a Dom and sub, but Dmitri and Presley don’t have intercourse until their third or fourth scene and that was refreshing and added to the sexual chemistry between them.

Their relationship continues  both in BDSM and away from it and  Presley gains the confidence she was lacking and Dmitri finds his soul mate.

A very hot steamy read well worth your time.

The other books in the series deal with a Dom/Master and a girl or woman who will win their hearts and a place in their beds.

Five stars *****

Desperate Domination (Bought by the Billionaire #3) by Lili Valente

Book Description:

Published: July 28, 2015

WARNING: This is a white-hot, panty-melting, boundary-pushing read. Not intended for the faint of heart.

“You’re mine. You belong to me. You will always belong to me. Because no one has ever made you feel the way I have.”

Jackson Hawke might be a monster, but he’s Hannah’s monster. They belong together and she’s determined to show Jackson she can love every part of him-light and dark, cruel and gentle, lost soul and Dominant man.

Jackson knows he doesn’t deserve her. He is broken and twisted and wrong inside, but when Hannah touches him it feels right, he feels right in a way he hasn’t in so long.

Can a monster learn to become a man again? Or will dark forces from the past claim Hannah’s life before she can claim his heart?

* * Desperate Domination is the 3rd in the Bought by the Billionaire romance series and ends in a CLIFFHANGER. For maximum enjoyment it should be read after books one and two.* *

Review –

“DESPERATE DOMINATION, the third book in this series, picks up right where the second left off. And, oh, how I had been waiting for this one, because my hair was standing on end at the end of Book 2, just waiting to see what Jackson Hawke had up his sleeve. And, in true Lili Valente fashion, she picked right back up with this mind-blower of a story and ran with it.

Just when it seems that Hannah and Jackson have reached a turning point in their twisted but crazily sexy and oddly romantic relationship, all bets are off. With one scene, Lili turns the mood of the story completely around, keeping me guessing with all of the shifts in action. Has Jackson realized who Hannah is? Is Hannah safe from Jackson? What will be the outcome for the two of them?

Darkness made the light shine brighter, pain made pleasure that much sweeter, and what was the point of angels if not to save beautiful devils like Jackson Hawke?

Jackson believes that he is beyond redemption, that nothing, not even Hannah’s love, can change the man that he has become. Hannah, unwilling to write him off, trusts him with everything that she is, all of her deepest secrets. But when Jackson just can’t forget about the past, a chain of events are set in motion that neither one could anticipate

And, there it is, THE END. I was not believing that Lili could do this again. This series is Cliffhanger Central, but I am not done, not nearly so. This book, like the rest of the series, is 5+ crazy, twisted, star-crossed, redemptive stars, and I cannot wait for DIVINE DOMINATION to answer all of my questions.” by Smut Book Junkie

Touch Series 1-4 by Lucia Jordan

Book Description:

Published: April 26, 2013

Touch Book 1: Passionate Encounter
Touch Book 2: Dark Temptation
Touch Book 3: Broken Promise
Touch Book 4: Forever Bound

Kelly Miller had had enough of her cheating boyfriend, his lack of ambition and his habit of tearing her down. She tosses him and all his stuff out and swears off men forever just as the devastatingly handsome Michael Adams shows up in her life. Michael is her boss and he’s used to being in charge, but can he take charge of this feisty and wounded woman? Their relationship grows while their sex life explodes and after a revelation, Kelly realizes that perhaps Michael, the dominant and powerful man, is as wounded inside as she is.

Be warned that this ebook contains very hot and explicit descriptions of erotic activity, BDSM themes and submissive training. Only mature readers should download this book.

Review –

Each of these “books” is more like a short story with 25-30 pages. It involves Kelly Miller and her new boss Michael, who is into BDSM and convinces Kelly that she is a submissive and as we learn from her actions, she is.

The series was pretty much run of the mill with nothing out of the ordinary to separate it from all the other erotica on the market.

I’ve had a cold for over 10 days now and although I’m better, there for a few days, I didn’t know if I would survive. I have never been taken down so low by the common cold and cough. Anyway, while under the weather I had a chance to catch up on my reading and listening and so I’ll be posting one or more every day.

Taking It All (Surrender Trilogy #3) by Maya Banks

Book Description:

Published: August 5, 2014

Chessy and Tate have been married for several years. In the beginning, their relationship was everything she wanted. Passionate. All consuming. She offered her submission freely and Tate cherished her gift with a tenderness that made her feel safe. Content. Wanted. And loved beyond all measure. But as the years have gone by, Tate has become more immersed in making his business the success it has become, and Chessy has taken a back seat to his business obligations. Growing unhappier with the status of their once blissful marriage, Chessy knows that something has to give. Or they stand to lose it all

Tate loves his wife. Has always loved her. Providing for her has always been his number one priority. But lately she’s seemed unhappy, and he’s worried. Worried enough that he arranges for a night together that he hopes will reignite the fire that once burned like an inferno between them.

But a business call at the wrong time threatens everything. Chessy’s safety, his concentration, his wife’s faith in him as her husband, a man sworn to love and protect her above all else. Gutted with the realization that he’s going to lose her—has already lost her—he readies for the fight of his life. Whatever it takes, he’ll get her back. And prove to her that nothing is more important than her love. And that if she’ll allow him to prove himself one more time, he’ll take it all. Everything. But he’ll give far more back. Himself. His undying love.

Review –

For the last two years Tate has dedicated himself to his business and has ignored his wife, Chessy. In a Dominant/submissive relationship this is a NO-NO. The submissive, especially when it is your wife, should be your first priority. He  leaves her awaiting, alone, for hours on their fifth anniversary while having a drink with a female potential client. Chessy witnesses this and runs out of the restaurant. Tate follows her and majorly apologizes and salvages the rest of the anniversary week-end saying he will change and put her first where she belongs.  Things go well and he arranges an evening at The House, a swank BDSM club, where they are members and has selected a man to do things to Chessy while he gives the commands.  (NOTE: I could tell right away that there were going to be problems because the extra man acted like a jerk from the get go).  The man secures Chessy to a spanking bench, making her completely helpless and proceeds to beat the daylights out of her and attempt to have anal sex with her without lube. Where, you might ask is Tate while all this is happening, that’s what Chessy wants to know and crying and in pain finally screams her safe word and then and only then does Tate come back into the room.  He had taken a business phone call and left HIS submissive in the hands of a stranger. After she is untied and calms down she packs her stuff and moves out and only when, weeks later, she finds out she’s pregnant does she reconsider. In the mean time Tate has taken on two partners so he can devote more time to his wife and new family.

They never stopped loving each other, it was just a matter of Tate getting his priorities straight and Chessy forgiving him.

Good read.
