The evil lies little girls are told…

There are hushed whispers about a wicked and decadent place known as the Palace of Lazar. A prince with insatiable tastes and the women who cater to it all. Feasts of pleasure, lust, and forbidden acts… all submitting to the sensual allure of the Harem.

But behind its bejewelled façade of luxury and pleasure lies a haunting and evil truth. A dark and perverse world that only the strong can survive.

A truth Cinder is about to learn when her fairytale dreams become twisted into a macabre masquerade of dancing vices.

Will she succumb to the demands of her current story, or cling to her fairytale ending?

MY REVIEW
The Truth About Cinder by Alta Hensley
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

This one I’m sorry to say wasn’t really for me a sort of kinky post-apocalyptic master /slave romance based kinda loosely on Cinderella, except it isn’t really that at all. I mean we have cinders, a prince, a palace and some mistress sisters but that’s about the extent of it really. I felt this didn’t know where it wanted to be at and at times encompassed too many different themes. I think this would have fared better if we had stuck with one theme or the other instead of as many as we did. I have read and enjoyed this author before and as you would expect this was as well written as her previous works just not really my bag. So this is quite an erotic read that is told entirely from Cinders POV and the initial premise was initially intriguing. This had some dark themes that some readers might struggle with but on the whole, this is not a massively dark story more of an erotic adventure. Least favourite from this author but this was still well written just not for me.

I voluntary reviewed a copy of The Truth about Cinder.

Genre-Erotic Reverse Harem Romance
Kindle Edition-198 Pages

The Bychkov Bratva need an heir. Now.

They wanted a woman quickly, so they chose a home where no one would ask questions. Instead, they got twenty-one-year-old American, Starla Anderson. When the Russian Mafia invades the orphanage where she lives, in the middle of the night, throwing the nuns who raised her into a petrified frenzy, it’s Starla who is chosen as the only one who could possibly survive the Bratva and their demands.

In spite of her own fear of the three massive, glowering and scary men, Starla has to think and act fast. With her heart thundering in her chest, her body on fire at their mere presence, she sees an opportunity, something that might help the other girls at the impoverished home get a chance of a better life. She lays out her only condition: her body for a fee…
Except… No one says no to the Bratva.

Publisher’s Note: This dark mafia romance contains elements of mystery, suspense, power exchange and a guaranteed HEA.

MY REVIEW
A Baby for the Bratva by Chloe Kent
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This one surprised me I enjoyed it so much more than I thought I would. This author had such a way with words when it came to describing the dirty stuff and It really was just so hot and heavy. Not a massively complicated story this does what it says on the tin and is really all about the loving filth. It’s not really a dark read more a rough and ready power exchange read with three dominant alpha males ready and willing to share our young Starla. So basically the gist here is three bratva brothers Mikhail, Dimitry and Nicolay Bychkov need a woman to give them a baby: yes this if you haven’t guessed from the cover here this one is a reverse harem. Wanting someone with limited connections they obtain an American girl Starla Anderson from a local Russian orphanage. This was really well written and surprisingly engrossing its full of lots of dubious consent and plenty of dominance and submission if that’s your bag. This one is plenty graphic in terms of its content and I also loved that this really bordered on the edge of rough at times. There was Spanking, humiliation medical play and lots of discipline throughout. This really was quite the bag of tricks and there was something here for everyone. it’s not an incredibly complicated story but let’s be honest that’s not why I picked this up now, is it? A surprising sensual read that I really did enjoy for all the right reasons. If your looking for something to make you squirm in your seat this author definitely has a magic touch with this type of fiction.

Genre-Reverse Harem erotic romance
Kindle Edition-194 pages

She was promised to the mysterious mountain men in order to have their baby. Now they’re ready to collect their reward.

Twenty-one-year-old Soraya has lived almost her whole life under the shadow of being promised to the mysterious men in the mountain – a deal struck in return for saving her father’s life. Now the time to present herself at their door has arrived.

For Soraya, this means going from the sheltered, friendless, cruel and unloving care of her grandmother to an equally daunting and strange situation in the eerie mansion hidden deep in the dark mountain. There are rumored to be hideous monsters gracing the dilapidated castle-like house, but nothing prepares Soraya for when she meets the three men determined to extract their repayment in full.

For the sake of her father, she’ll pay the debt, then she’ll start living the life she was meant to live…

Publisher’s Note: This steamy, contemporary reverse harem romance contains elements of mystery, and power exchange.

MY REVIEW
A Baby for the Mountain Men by Chloe Kent
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

If you have read this author before you will know just what type of story to expect here. Some hot and heavy reverse harem content that is as delicious as it is graphic. There is all the usual stuff going on here the dominance and submission that at times borders on the edge of rough. Lots of discipline humiliation and medical play I just adore how this author weaves her wicked web so decadent and dirty but then also managing to make you believe in the purity of there eventual love which is also such a direct contrast to the goings-on here. So this one features Soraya Arlington who is promised to brothers Logan, Noah and Archer Lockhard to pay a debt her father owes. It is, as usual, very hot and heated and I read this in one complete sitting. Really well written and a stand out in its category. There is a little side story going on to provide some slight angst but this is mainly all about the action and of that there is plenty.

Really did enjoy this and can definitely recommend.

MY REVIEW
Twisted Love Meisner and Chalfont: Indecency Suites #8 by Anabella Roscoff
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is one of my top-runners in this series and I do find I tend to gravitate towards the more forceful and domineering stories, that’s just the way I roll. This type of tale is just my kryptonite and it brings me down, all in a good way, each and every single time. This particular erotic short centres on a Master and Sub type dynamic, it was just the right amount of dirty decadent and delicious. Master Marcus is all dominant and powerful control with a side order of sadistic and sensual seduction and Suzanna for him is all potential pleasing perfection so much so that he is now ready to move there unusual dynamic to a new level of intimacy one that will ultimately prove her worthy or maybe not of his own brand of individual special attention. The chemistry projected between this sadistic Sir and his willing Pupil punches of the page and though this is short there’s nothing lost in the process. Perfect if all you have is a short window to get your fix these stories certainly reel you in and ring you out leaving you pulsing and panting. I also really appreciated that little reveal at the end of this concerning Marcus it really was the cherry for me just perfecting things here. I loved this one a lot and it is by far my fave yet.

She was offered as a sacrifice. He took her as his mate.

The moment her ship crash-landed, Selena Marks knew she was in way over her head, and that was before the natives of this planet took her captive, stripped her bare, and brought her deep into a sacred cave to be given as a sexual sacrifice to the godlike brute whose whims they serve.

Though Selena has an idea of what is in store for her, when her captor claims her it is far more intense than anything she could have imagined. Every attempt at defiance or escape ends with her pleading for mercy as her quivering body is punished and ravaged in the most shameful ways possible, but with each helpless, screaming climax, the truth becomes harder and harder to deny.

She is his mate, and soon she will beg for him to breed her.

Publisher’s Note: Mate includes spankings and rough, intense sexual scenes. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.

MY REVIEW

Mate by Trent Evans
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Mate is very much a story of Domination and submission it wasn’t incredibly complicated and instead of this being plot-driven, It focused more on the physical. That’s not to say this wasn’t an enjoyable experience because it was just don’t go expecting some epic blockbuster because that is not what this essentially is about. Pilot Selena Marks is on a space mission observing a primitive planet and its inhabitants when the ship loses power. Flying an escape pod to the surface she finds herself taking the place of the lastest sacrifice and in the clutches of an omnipotent being of unknown origin Malcolm who informs her that he is keeping her as his mate. This also comes with a hefty dose of humiliation and also a lot of objectification. The humiliation is really just name-calling and not anything way out there or severe and it is something Selena herself gets off on also.

This was essentially well-written but this one is really more about the kinky antics of Selena and Malcolm it was not an incredibly deep tale but it was fun all the same.

The Bratva’s Bride by Jane Henry
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This one was just so good, this is the second book ive read by this author and I have enjoyed both so very much. This one features at its centre Demyan the head of the Bratva and Larissa. Larissa and her sister Calina are twins and after a supposed accident kills there hacker father Calini suffering from brain damage is institutionalised, her sister lies low while providing for her the only way she knows how with her less than legal computer skills. But after her sister not realising the consequences of her actions steals money from the Bratva with a laptop she snuck into her Larissa knows the only way to save her sister is to switch places. So Demyan is ice cold from the onset. He is set in his ways and likes order in his life. He is immaculate and very particular not only in his work but also in his playtime. He is at heart a sadist and gets off to a degree on his partner’s pain. Training his new kitten in how to please him to pay off her debt is going to be his pleasure. Larissa is not stupid she is aware that the way to get through this is to behave she is also surprised to actually like the way that Demyan makes her feel. It’s not in my opinion really that dark of a read, maybe a 3 on a scale of 10 This was told from dual pov which is always my favourite. I do so adore stories where the anti-hero stays true to himself and the heroine accepts him for that so this one definitely didn’t disappoint in that regards as Demyan has no intention of escaping his brothers in the Bratva, being originally an orphan they are his chosen family and his bride will now be apart of that extended family. I also really enjoyed the ending here. On a final note, this can easily be read as a standalone. This was a very easy read that I have no issues recommending at all.

I voluntary reviewed a copy of The Bratva’s Bride (Wicked Doms #2).

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️STARS ARC BOOK REVIEW

Release Date-7/6/18

I have not read anything by this author before so was looking forward to the new experience. “Sub Mission” and loving the pun on words; was a magnificent addition to its genre. From the second I started reading this fascinating novel; I was sucked right along into the BDSM lifestyle of Seth and Baker; almost sharing the special journey to there own personal HEA with them. The brief premise of this story is that Both work for a private agency that has been hired to draw out and apprehend perpetrators who are targeting wealthy male submissives. Seth is a Dominant and Baker a Submissive; the twist here is that Seth is Gay and Baker not so much. Baker has always had mistresses in the past; never a Master and from the minute these two meet it’s not only Seth who is drawn like a moth to the flame. “Sub Mission” is almost a journey of new depths and discovery for both our men and though we do have a suspenseful background here the main focus of the narrative I found was on the developing relationship between Agents Seth and Baker, and what a beautiful but of so kinky road they do travel; one that I equally enjoyed traversing along with them. So this is plenty dirty and hot; with some very graphic descriptions, that got me hot under the collar; but were also incredibly romantic and heartfelt. I could definitely feel the connection and threads that adhered these two lovers like glue. I adored watching the ups and downs these two faced as they learned together through a series of miscommunications the importance of being honest with each other. This is told in dual POV; has no OM or OW angst and though light on major secondary characters; I didn’t feel that this was a detriment at all. I loved the finish and especially how nicely it was set up for Eli and Ari’s story; now that is definitely one I’m looking forward to. This is one read that gets my seal of approval; it’s well written and entertaining; what more could I ask for. Thank You to the Author for providing me with an ARC of “Sub Mission” of which I have reviewed voluntary.
