🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟STARS.
WOW WOW WOW!! Where has this author been all my life bloody amazing This was such a captivating read and “Walking Away” By Xavier Neal literally snuck up on me in stealth mode, blowing me away with its utter sheer magnetism.
I have never read anything quite like this story, and I feel like I’m doing this a disservice by labelling “Walking Away” a menage romance.
This is so much more, It’s a beautiful love story that just takes you by the throat and won’t let go.
This is by the far the best M/M/F romance I have ever read and I’ve read a few over the years.
So “Walking Away,” tells the tale of Jason and Gwen or Blondie and Gwenny as Hudson has affectionally nicknamed them.
After answering an online advert, Hudson finds himself in the strangest of situations dating a married couple.

.Seriously? Am I actually considering being the third wheel to their marriage? I mean, easy escape when I’m ready to bail, but banging a married chick and dating a….dude? Am I really gonna give this shit a try?

Gwen and Jason are having issues in there once idyllic marriage.
An accident has left Gwen’s husband Jason in a wheelchair, unable to perform his husbandly duties.
And then there’s Jason, needing a companion as he is stuck indoors while his wife works.
Brain stagnating from all the toxic daytime television, isolated from the world around him and taking his frustrations out on a wrecked Gwen.
Totally managing to alienate his wife and not even caring because of what he perceives as his now manly limitations.
The pair themselves have not been intimate in over a year and their union is now approaching breaking point.
So Hudson agrees to date them both and after setting up some initial ground rules the trio are ready to start there very unique arrangement.
What was so unusual about this was that Jason and Hudson are both manly males and have no experience or desire normally for the same sex.
But as well as being blown away by Gwenny’s curves and sheer sexiness.
Hudson finds himself actually intrigued and for the first time in his life interested in a male.
Which also seems to be projected back at him by Jason.
So first things first I adored Hudson, I loved his straight-talking take no prisoners attitude.

.“Let me make something fucking clear for you, Blondie. Gwenny asks you to do shit. I’m telling you. Gwenny is your hot as fuck wife, and I’m the asshole whose cock you’ll be sucking between highlight reels on ESPN. She treats your ass with kid gloves because she cares about your feelings, and I’m the one here to tell you to man the fuck up.”   The glare deepens yet he doesn’t say a word.   “Now, you can make this easy for me and tell me where the keys to the van are and your shoes, or you can make this fucking difficult and be a bigger fucking pain in the ass. But let me remind you, one more time, I am not Gwenny. I’ve got the strength to force your ass wherever it is I feel like taking you, so if you wanna fucking box this shit out, just know I’m not holding back a damn thing.”

And this is exactly what Jason needs as its a refreshing change to Gwen’s softly softly approach, which isn’t really working and is only leaving Jason and Gwen more frustrated in their marriage.
So this was all sorts of unusual and it shouldn’t have worked but it just did.
I adored watching this trio fall in love and Jason becoming more accepting of his condition and disability thanks to Hudsons insights and friendship.
What was once two lovers, gradually evolves into a close trio.
The overall dynamic of Jason and Gwen’s relationship changing for the better with the added addition of Hudson.

“You have a problem with me, with what happens between us, you fucking talk to me, Gwendolyn.” I watch her chest rise and fall a little faster. “You treat me like I’m your husband and not just the asshole in the wheelchair you tolerate.”   She takes a couple steps closer and leans her face down to mine. “Then you treat me like I’m your wife and not just the doormat who was doing everything she could to make all of this easier for you.”   My lips drift towards hers. “I don’t want easier, baby. I want what we had.”   Just above a whisper she proclaims, “What we had is gone. But what we’re building…” Gwen’s fingertip trails along my jaw, “will be so much better.”

 

I try to smile at the genuine concern he’s displaying. “I’d kill to make love to my wife but-”   “Ah-Ah.” He holds a finger to hush me. “We can make that happen.”   “Did you lose the memo about my dick not being available to serve for duty?”   Hudson cocks a smirk. “I got you a new dick.”   “What?!” Gwen and I squawk together.   After a small chortle, he explains, “On my way over this morning, I made a pit-stop. I swung by a sex shop and got you a strap on.”

So walking away was funny, oh was it amusing, usually due to Hudsons sheer outrageousness.
He was an absolute card and I have to say he was hands down my favourite character in this book.
He just brightened everyone’s day with his constant monologue and no filter on his mouth.
An example of this.

“Why do we have to learn to cook?” Hudson whines as the three of us wander around the fresh produce selection of the grocery store.  “We have you.”   “I’m sorry, do I look like your mother?”   He instantly frowns. “Thank fuck no. I’m not into that whole fucking chicks who look like my mom thing. It’s fucking weird. And disgusting.”   Jason doesn’t bother hiding his laughter.

See, quite the naughty schoolboy vibe here.
So I love where this took us and I found the deeper exploration of this relationship and its many variables so endearing.
This wasn’t just smut or for titillation.
And although the scenes were hot and heavy you could also feel the love and emotion as well.
and everything was also enveloped in a warm shade of humour.
You just could not help falling for these three lovers.
I find in most menage stories the emphasis is usually on the female and the males sharing her.
Here this wasn’t just the case all our threesome Gwen, Jason and Hudson fell deeply in love and lust and the author has portrayed this beautifully.
Managing to convey the sentiments behind the actions in an almost normal everyday way.
Showing The camaraderie and old boys club antics between Jason and Hudson as well as also conveying the love between all three so splendidly.
And while Gwen definitely gets her share of the attention there is definitely a Bromance in the making between Jason and Hudson.
It was absolutely poetic to observe.

They are an adorably obnoxious pair. Somedays I swear there’s a Super Bowl party in my living room with the spread of beer, pizza, and sports blaring, not to mention the belching and farting. Other days…well they’re overwhelmingly thoughtful like when Jason will rub my feet while Hudson gently strokes my head. It’s been such a long time since I’ve had to balance the desire to pop the person I love upside the head for being too childish and drop to my knees to praise them for being so sweet. What makes it more complicated now is that there are two of them and they find humor in tag teaming in regards to who deserves kisses and who deserves kicks.

 

Gwenny peels her body out of my grip and busies herself with cooking. Once I’m out of the way of the both of them, I take a moment to adore how easy everything flows when we’re together. From the beginning it’s always felt like I just stepped into shoes waiting for me. Like he’s my best friend and she’s our girl. Like the connection we have is older than time itself.

This then has then been topped off with the added cherry of Gwen and the room in her big heart for both men who she is now so invested and in love with.
I will leave you here with this final sentiment that “walking away” managed to convey to me with its beautiful emotions conveyed on every page of this book.
Here the message is clear really, love is just love, whatever the gender its the person inside that is the ultimate attraction.

Despite the fact I may never learn to walk again, I’ve learned to love again, and I think that makes me the luckiest bastard on the planet. Yeah, maybe it’s been two years since I could make love to my wife without assistance or drive or have a real job, but I’m still alive. I’m still capable of much more than some. Plus, I have the greatest two people in the entire world to love and support me. Being able to feel my legs or my dick again will always pale in comparison to that.

 

I’ve never felt anything this powerful. This intense. This…soul shaking. Every time we’re together, everything we do together feels like this is how we belong. Like it should always be this way. However, I can’t stop myself from wondering, if it feels this extraordinary when we’re together, how excruciating will it feel if we’re ever torn apart?

So There you have it, folks, sorry for all the quotes, I could have posted loads more.
There was just so much good material here to work with here.
If I could give this more than five stars I would, it’s just that unique and brilliant.
I can’t wait to check out more of this authors work, if this is an example of her writing, well I’m blown away really blown away.
So I got this free with my KU subscription and boy am I glad I did.
I hope you take a chance on this and give this a go, I really don’t think you will be disappointed.

So Absorbing White starts off where Feeling White leaves us and right from the start we are thrown straight into the thick and are left to flounder scratching our heads in confusion, What the hell is going on?
I felt like I had been plunged into an episode of the twilight zone and hadn’t been given a script.
Such is the brilliance of this series, never having a clue where the tale will take us next, you think you know where your heading then out of the blue
BAM!!!

Everythings topsy turvy.
just as Alex excels with his head games so does our wordsmith Miss Hart and this makes for never a dull moment in our saga, constantly keeping us on our toes and chasing our tails.
So Absorbing white gives us a much deeper insight and finally brings Pascal centre stage, which he so deserves with his theatrical persona and sexy stick and we finally get to really scrape beneath the pretence, outing and revealing things that were hidden.
I also found myself much less comfortable with certain things in this book, it really stretched my boundaries and I found myself questioning my concepts of what is normal and who gets to decide these things.
This is a so much darker read than previous books which I wasn’t expecting at all, but contrary to this fact, I really enjoyed absorbing White, my only gripe would be the ending.
I felt the finale was a bit unresolved, maybe, I’m hoping there possibly might be a book four on the horizon fingers crossed from me.
So in conclusion really enjoyable read that stretched my boundaries and really kept me guessing.
Oh, and sister Belle was back in major BITCH MODE!!!

Dirty Daddies by Jade West

Release Date-May 16th 2017
Genre-Erotic Romance
Kindle Edition-277 pages

Some bad girls need a firm hand to keep them in line.
I’m bad enough to need two.

Two older men who can teach me a lesson when I misbehave.
Two hot bodies to keep me warm in bed at night.
Two best friends who can learn to share a filthy-mouthed little brat like me.

After all… dirty girls need very dirty daddies.


Carrie Wells is nothing but trouble.

She’s wild and difficult. Not worth anyone’s time.

Carrie Wells is a beautiful little brat. She’s also a vulnerable young adult on my case list.

She’s half my age and totally off limits. I’m breaking every rule in the book by giving her somewhere to stay when she’s out on the streets with nowhere to go. And I’m breaking every rule of friendship by holing her up in my best friend Jack’s house while he’s away on business.

I thought life was difficult enough when I fell for the girl, but it gets a whole lot harder when Jack comes home early and finds a beautiful stranger causing chaos in his house.

And a whole lot harder still when he falls for her too.

He’s the one guy on this planet I’d share my last supper with. I’d share it gladly.

I’m just not so sure how I feel about sharing Carrie Wells.

Dirty DaddiesDirty Daddies by Jade West

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love Jade Wests work, she is one of the few authors that I find that can take the filthiest of subjects and spin it with a romantic twist.
Now with a book title like Dirty Daddies, you would never really think in a million years that behind that name was a beautiful love story waiting to unfold.
But that’s what this is, a tummy all a flutter, passionate, if rather kinky meeting of minds and also bodies, three to be precise.
So the story goes That Callie just turning eighteen, is leaving the books of her support worker to make her way in the adult world.
Callie of the filthy mouth and massive attitude.
But behind that sassy facade lies a young girl who just wants to be loved.
Best friends Michael and Jack are two such men, early forties, really should no better, but can’t help falling for the whirlwind that is Callie Wells.
What follows is a love story though very unconventional works for these three lovers.
What I liked about this story was the way the tale unfolded. This is no quick slap and tickle erotica, but a well thought out slow burning attraction.
By the time our three unconventional lovers take the plunge so to speak, it’s so believable and very very hot, blistering in fact.
I love the insecurity of the characters and the fact there all novices when it comes to this type of relationship.
I also adore the age-gap aspect, being in this type of partnership myself, and by that, I mean the age difference, not the multiple partners. I got it, not so much the daddy aspect of things that to me doesn’t float my boat, but the assertiveness and experience of an older man has an allure all of its own, I should know, I have been with my older fellow over twenty years.

So despite all the mine falls of inappropriateness littered through dirty daddies, Jade West has managed to explore and defuse all this in one fell sexy swoop, and in the process, she has given us an unusual but very believable love story.
I can honestly say this has been my favourite so far of Jade Wests work perhaps because of the parallels to my own life, so thank you, Jade, you have produced another great story, way to go girly, keep them coming.
Oh, and before I go a warning this book is extremely graphic and dirty. but it’s also sweet and romantic you have been warned.
