Dirty Filthy Rich Men (Dirty Duet #1) by Laurelin Paige

Book Description:

Published: March 27, 2017

Format: E-Book

When I met Donovan Kincaid, I knew he was rich. I didn’t know he was filthy. Truth be told, I was only trying to get his best friend to notice me.

I knew poor scholarship girls like me didn’t stand a chance against guys like Weston King and Donovan Kincaid, but I was in love with his world, their world, of parties and sex and power. I knew what I wanted—I knew who I wanted—until one night, their world tried to bite me back and Donovan saved me. He saved me, and then Weston finally noticed me, and I finally learned what it was to be in their world.

And then what it was like to lose it.

Ten years later, I’ve found my way back. Back to their world. Back to him.

This time, I’m ready. I’ve been down this road before, and I know all the dirty, filthy ways Donovan will try and wreck me.

But it’s hard to resist. Especially when I know how much I’ll like it.

Review –

Warning: This book could contain triggers for some readers.

Sabrina happens upon Weston, a boy who she had a crush on back in college and who is also Donovan’s best friend, in LA. They have dinner and hooked up a weekend before Weston decides he wants Sabrina to quit her job and join his and Donovan’s company in New York. She says no, and a few months goes by before Weston makes her an offer she couldn’t refuse and now she’s off to NYC, thinking that Donovan is still working overseas and that she won’t have to see him. Well, he’s back in the US and he spends every opportunity to make sexist, misogynistic comments and sexually harass her. Sabrina constantly tells herself that she’s a strong woman and she deserves respect. Then, she throws all common sense out the window to have sex with Donovan.

The plot is predictable, but who cares, IT’S JUST A BOOK!

 Sabrina continues to  forget her common sense and sleep with someone who doesn’t respect her and harasses her at every turn. Donovan is jealous Sabrina and Weston might have a thing going on, and Donovan is very manipulative.

He has an ex-fiance and became so consumed with her that he hired a PI to follow  her and let him know where she was every minute of the day, but she found out and wanted to call off the wedding if he didn’t stop. But he didn’t and she died in a car accident trying to get away from the PI.

When Sabrina finds this out she feels bad for Donovan and when she finds out he has a folder with over ten years of stuff on her she realizes just how obsessed he can get and that he loves her, in his own way. (Anyone else would say “stalker” and run the other direction, but not Sabrina.)

Donovan realizes that because he loves Sabrina she could get hurt or die so he decides to go to France for business and maybe not come back. He thinks distancing himself from her will keep her safe. END, can you say cliffhanger!!!!!!!

The next installment comes out in September and I can’t wait!!!!

HOT read.

 

 

 

 

Entwined (Iron Bulls MC #3) by Phoenyx Slaughter

Book Description:

Published: February 2, 2016

Format: E-Book

In Entwined, the third book in the Iron Bulls MC series, shocking secrets and desires are revealed. Can Dante and Karina’s passionate bond survive or will they be torn apart?

Review –

Not much of a blurb on this one and it’s a bit misleading.

Karina and Dante’s relationship keeps getting stronger and he’s trying to get her half sister’s info from Tucker, Karina’s father. He says the half sister doesn’t know anything about Karina and that’s she’s “wild child” and could be a bad influence of her. Dante doesn’t seem too concerned which alerts me to BIG TROUBLE ahead.

Dante wants to push Karina’s boundaries so enlisted Luck to introduce her to bondage. She likes it but they don’t get far because she enters subspace so fast that she couldn’t vocalize her safe word if she needed to.

Tucker missed Karin’s high school graduation and it affects her more than she thought. Also, Athena turns eighteen that day so Romeo is chomping at the bit to get his hands on her.

No cliffhanger this time. Just an anticipated meeting with Kadence, the half-sister. But Dante remembers Tucker’s warning about her wildness and her mother’s involvement with a rival MC and decides that when the meeting happens it will be on his turf so he can keep Karina safe.

Great read.

Beneath This Man (The Complete Set) by Lucia Jordan

Book Description:

Published: June 12, 2017

Format: E-Book

Alexa really, really needs a big break.


She’s been working at the newspaper for five years and she hasn’t had a single byline. She’s sick and tired of doing research and getting coffee. So when Alexa finds out that one of her friends is attending a sex party, she begs to tag along. Alexa has never done anything wild, but for the sake of getting a good story she’ll do whatever it takes, and writing about the underground group sex scene would definitely get attention. The only thing Alexa doesn’t expect is that she’ll meet a man at the party, a man who doesn’t seem like he belongs there either.

Review –

Book One was free and, of course, the end was a semi cliffhanger so I HAD to buy the complete set, which consists of four mini books. I say “mini” because they are less than thirty pages each.

Anyway, the story line is not new but Alexa and Luke had a great chemistry so I wanted to see where the author would take them. Where she took them was to a predictable HEA by ways of a pretty boring relationship . I was pretty disappointed because usually books by Lucia Jordan are steamier than this one. 

Oh well, live and learn. I’m sure it won’t be the last time I’m pulled into a storyline and shell out money for the other books.

 

Possessed By You (Torn #1) by J. M. Walker

Book Description:

Published: May 2014

Format: Free Digital Book

Releasing control is relief…

I was warned about men like Brett Maclean.

He was dark and thrilling, intense and controlling. And he captivated me from the very start. He unleashed something inside of me like no other. His bad rep and troubled past drew me to him like gasoline feeding a flame.

With just one taste, I felt the danger in him, the uncontrollable power that left me breathless. The passion consumed me. Fast and hard.

Temptation couldn’t guard my heart. I should have known a man of such raw and wild desires came with competition.

Review –

In this story we have a tall, very handsome alpha bar/club owner that doesn’t do relationships.. and then we have our heroine who is crushing on this alpha…he makes a proposition one night is all… 

What I didn’t like is, he was too cocky and  I know these alpha’s mostly are but he was just too friggin much.  Going on and on about how she will forget any other man she’s ever been with if she just gives him this one night…blah, blah, blah. She went from this strong woman to this half nag, half bore, total doormat.

You know the story from here – one night turns into many and they can’t get enough of each other. sex is like their oxygen. They have to have it!  Brett has secrets and dark demons. Painful secrets that are the cause of his behavior.He doesn’t know what love is, never felt it for a woman, until Evvie.
Brett is an alpha male to the core. He domineering, rough in the bedroom and completely sexy, everything you want in your alpha.

Then, surprise, his ex-girlfriends tries and succeeds getting him back only to have him dump her again and go back to Evvie but she has trust issues, especially with a man like Brett who’s had a string of women all his life.

They love each other, but with so many things coming between them, is that love enough? 
 I won’t tell you how the book ends but I WON’T  be reading the other books in the series because it was just okay and not one that I HAVE to follow up on.

Facing up to reality will prove to be the hardest thing she ever does.

Ghosts from the past will return, undisclosed secrets will be revealed and lifelong dreams shall finally be fulfilled.

Warning:

Please note, this novel contains serious adult content and descriptive sexual scenes. 

Review –

I don’t know why, but I felt let down by this book, the final installment of the Fractured series. To me, it was too long, dragging out parts that could have been dealt with more succinctly.

The author did a very good job of tying up all the loose ends and getting rid of all of the demons that had plagued Kara and Sloan from the very beginning.

 

I felt like shaking Kara at times for the stupid things she did. Sloan had the patience of Job. 

I did like ending with the epilogue from Sloane’s point of view.  I like Sloan enormously and was very satisfied with tbe way the story ended. I will think of them enjoying their future together free from fear at long last. 

Tormented (Fractured #2) by Elle Charles

Book Description:

Published: October 7, 2014

Format: E-Book

Kara Petersen has lived through more than most.

The horrors of her past had shaped her, forcing her to walk through this life relatively alone. Untrusting and guarded, seeking solace in the shadows, she thought she could survive anything that life threw at her.

And she did…

Until him…

Sloan Foster.

He brought her out of the darkness and into the light. He gave her a life she could never have imagined. She fell in love with him, but when faced with controversy, just like everyone else, he let her down.

He broke her heart.

She was complacent.

She was foolish.

Except, it wasn’t her love for him that was foolish, it was believing she could escape pain.

In a bid to end her suffering for one night only, she unknowingly walked into the path of evil.

Enduring the devastation of having to remember the night of her abduction, she must decide if she is willing to risk possibly having her heart-broken again in order to find out the truth.

Can she really give all her love to a man who has the ability to obliterate her completely?

Taking a leap of faith, she vows to trust him, regardless of how imprudent it may transpire be.

Falling further into his outwardly perfect world for a second time, Kara is, once again, treading a path she fears will eventually destroy her.

As truths finally unfold and decade old secrets are revealed, it’s clear the past has never been too far behind and binds her to others in ways unimaginable.

Together, she discovers their love is tormented.

Warning:
Please note, this is a dark erotic romance. It contains descriptive sexual scenes, violence and other serious adult content. It is suitable for readers aged 18 and over only. Due to the subject matter of this novel, it is not recommended for those who are easily offended or of a sensitive disposition. Also, there are many triggers.

Review –

This book takes up immediately where the first one left off. 

Kara has been kidnapped and physically tortured for days by Deacon, whom we find out later was the one who raped and beat her repeatedly when she was a teen. She is rescued by her girlfriend, Sam, and stays in the hospital for over a week.

Sloan is besides himself seeing Kara in that condition again. He was the one who rescued her when she was fifteen.

Kara does go back to Sloan and gives him a second chance but since there in a third book in the series, I knew more bad things were going to happen.

There are many twists and turns in this book and the story becomes a bit convoluted. Kara is made privy to some secrets of her past and the role that Sloan and his friends played.

Near the end of the book, Kara is again kidnapped by Deacon and horribly abused and again is rescued, this time by Jeremy (who I wouldn’t trust if my life depended on it). She convinces him that she can’t go back to Sloan looking the way she does(this time Deacon had cut her all over with a knife) and so she goes to another town and assumes a new identity . END.

This book bothered me because there were so many things Kara could have done to protect herself from Deacon and the other bad guys, instead it seems she went where they were. She was just stupid.

I hope the last book Liberated is better.

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 *****

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.

Submission – The Complete Set by Lucia Jordan

Book Description:

Published: August 20, 2014

Colby Bell has just been crushed by a bad break-up, leaving her robbed and so desperate for cash that she’s willing to take on two more jobs. To make things worse her rent is overdue with an eviction notice comes in the mail.

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.

Guilty – The Complete Set by Lucia Jordan

Book Description:

Published:July 19, 2015

Rachel has the urge to be bad—very, very bad—and Jesse James is just the one to show her how.

Rachel Brown’s life is perfect just the way it is. Sure, she doesn’t have a boyfriend or a social life, but she has a routine and that is all that matters. Rachel’s loud and rather exuberant roommate, Layla, often comments on how boring Rachel’s life is, but Rachel doesn’t see it that way. At least, she didn’t until the night Jesse James walked into her Laundromat, and her life. Yeah, she thinks the name is absurd and his parents had a very cruel sense of humor. But the dark and simmering look in his eyes makes her body hum with excitement from the moment she first sees him. This Jesse James is not from the old west – he is dangerously seductive and irresistibly tempting.

Suddenly, the safe little bubble that Rachel has built around herself bursts as she throws all caution to the wind. But is Jesse more trouble than she can handle?

Review –

Rachel doesn’t know what to think of the big, bold, dangerous looking biker she meets in the laundromat except that he’s trouble with a capital  T. She decides to take a risk and go with him for a ride on his motorcycle when he offers and little does she know that her life will be changed forever.

I have a reading soft-spot for bikers, MC clubs and bad boys and this series of short books has them all.  There is steamy sexual chemistry, mild domination,gun fire, a twin brother, who is a cop, no less),blazing  hot sex scenes and a hea. A great read and so short can be read in an hour or less.
