Genre-Erotic romance (M/M/M/F)
Kindle Edition-337 Pages

 

I’ve never been afraid of the dark…but that doesn’t mean I wanted to live in it. And maybe everyone wants what they can’t have, but I should’ve thought it over before I accepted the key and unlocked the door to their forbidden world. 

Number One is mostly silent. He watches me with them very carefully. His gaze never wanders. His interest never wanes. 

Number Two is mostly gentle. But it’s the other side of him I like best. The wild side. 

Number Three is mostly reserved. He refuses to cross the line. Even when I beg. 

It was carnal, it was sensual, and it was erotic. That’s it. That’s all it was supposed to be. A trip into the dark. A peek into the forbidden. 

I just didn’t expect to like them. 

***** 

I heard the door open and close and said nothing. And the footsteps coming down the hallway towards the bedroom. I even heard him say, “Hey.” So softly. “You awake?” Like he didn’t want to wake me. 

I listened as he stepped into the closet. There was that slick sound a man makes when he pulls his tie through his shirt collar. I heard the unclasping of his watch. The jingle of his belt buckle and the shuffle of his pants as they dropped to the floor. 

I even heard his moan as he stood over me. I could feel his shadow from the streetlamp outside like it was heat. 

Then the bed creaked, the mattress sank. And his warm, hard body straddled me. 
Still, I said nothing. 

I just buried my face in the sweet scent of the pillow and closed my eyes, feigning sleep. 

“Rochelle,” he whispered, leaning over me. His fingertips gently brushed the hair away from my shoulder. His mouth pressed against my skin. “Did you miss me? God, I’ve missed you. Two weeks is too long. We need to renegotiate.” 

He nipped my neck. Kissed it. Licked my ear as he positioned himself to begin. 

And I said… nothing. 

Even though my name is not Rochelle. 
That’s why I’m here. Tied up and gagged inside the closet. Sitting in the dark as three men on the other side of the door argue about where Rochelle went, why I was in her bed, and what they should do next. 

I should be scared but I’m not. 

I should be screaming, but I won’t. 

Because this just feels very, very right. 

And the only thing on my mind is… what will happen next?

My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars

This was so much more than what I was originally expecting; what I was anticipating here was a really hot menage type or quad as this actually has four participants and while this was certainly steaming hot in nature and intent this was also so much more than that.
Totally surprised me this did and in a totally good way as well.
This story revolves around a game; A very adult dark game called taking turns.
And what we have here is a decadent descent into all that is sensual and sexy as our girl Chella spirals further down the rabbit hole as she explores in depth her inert hidden nature.
Smith, Quin and Bric all aboard this ride also and all with there own particular reasons for playing.
One, Two and three each with there own set of bizarre rules agreed on by all; the end game, well it’s all four finally playing together as one whole.
As our tale evolves it quickly becomes apparent that one player is much more invested in the prize and is determined to win by giving Chella exactly what she needs to enable her to move forward with himself as her ultimate home.

I will give you that, Chella. I will fill in the deep, dark hole you’re so desperate to cover up with whatever it is you’re doing here with us, and I will make your longing go away. That’s my present.

So I adored all the men here But my hands down favourite was Smith; He has such a quirky atypical guy and I adored the fact he was just so intense and didn’t play with a full deck.
He was my main man here all the way.
The others were OK and all but Smith just had that slight edge for me.
So this was an excellent read that was seriously and surprisingly very emotive.
If I had one criticism here for me it would have been Chella herself I did find her at times to be slightly unreasonable in her attitudes to others.
Well mainly Smith if I’m being honest I think she treated him rather unfairly originally and it got my back up hence the half a star deduction.
As a whole, this is one that I’m happy to recommend just be aware before embarking here this is a romance with multiple partners and is fairly explicit in nature if you’re like me then that last sentence will only entice you to want to read this more.
Taking Turns (Turning, #1) is the first instalment in a new series but this can be read as a standalone as far as I am aware the next part continues on with Rochelle’s story.
So I managed to grab this when it was free so I lucked out there folks.
All opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own thoughts.

☘ARC BOOK REVIEW☘

Release Date-31st August 2018
Genre-Alien Romance
Kindle Edition

Who knew reading sexy alien abduction stories could get a girl into trouble? Or that an e-reader could also be the gateway to another galaxy? I definitely didn’t… but here I am anyway, mated to the Tsenturion High Commander just like the unwilling human heroines in my favourite sci-fi romances.

The Commander demands obedience. He intends to claim me, train me, and turn me into his perfect little pleasure trophy. He doesn’t believe in love. I don’t believe in giving in without a fight. There’s no amount of discipline or ecstasy that could break me to his will… I hope.

Alien Captive is a hot alien abduction romance, starring one feisty human and the Tsenturion Warrior strong enough to potentially master her.

Disclaimer: the authors are not responsible for any actual alien abductions that may result should you purchase this book.

So really enjoyed this one; found it so very amusing and its super scorching hot to boot.
I also really adored that oh so ridiculous disclaimer.

The authors are not responsible for any actual alien abductions that may result as a consequence of your purchase of this book.

Love it; that definitely got a chuckle out of me.
Both are actually relatively new authors for me but it was all good from my corner as I certainly did enjoy getting acquainted with them both here.
So this one is red hot and does contain a lot of Alien hanky-panky, not that I’m complaining mind.
There are also some very unique differences in this interspecies romance that had my tongue hanging out in pure unapologetic delight, the fiercely descriptive originality of the narrative was fantastic and despite the many sexy scenarios we are introduced to here there is also a great imaginative storyline thread also running throughout.
I loved how Dawn ultimately arrives as a tribute for the commander it was really so inventive and was just so refreshing to also experience an alien romance that doesn’t take itself to seriously.
In fact, that was one of this books greatest assets its ability to make the fantastical just so mundane.
The scenario we are introduced to here was just so fanciful and ingenious that I found myself devouring every impossible word.
I bet we have all fantasised slightly; Ok I confess in my case a lot, about being the heroine in our own starring roles never for one minute thinking that fiction could become reality.
Be careful what you wish for as for Dawn; well her x-rated daydreams have certainly become her new reality; lucky lucky girl.
In fact, I only have one question left where can I get one of those E-Readers and where do I sign up?

Tribute.gif

On a final note, I really did enjoy the brief glimpse into what could be an excellent continuing series.
It really managed to pique my attention and interest and I for one would love to learn more and also explore where this could ultimately go.
So pleased Gavrill and Dawn got there much deserved HEA; fingers crossed that we do get a book two in this series; I for one definitely want to continue on here.
I mean come on we so need grumpy old Bogdan’s story next.

🌹ARC BOOK REVIEW🌹

Release Date-24th August 2018
Genre-Dark Romance
Kindle Edition

I was hired to apprehend a monster – a Dom who’d been sentenced to life for murdering his submissive. I’ve seen what he’s capable of, and the images will haunt me forever. I swore I’d stop at nothing to put him behind bars.

But then our plane back to the States crashes.

We are the only two survivors.

And the monster will make me wish I’d died along with the rest of them.

I devoured “Island Captive” in like one sitting it was that good.

belle_book_gif

And no this was not no insipid flowery fairy-tale but it was definitely my kind of bed-time story
one where my evening is most certainly going to feature sweet dreams of the more carnal variety; if I’m very lucky that is.

DistortedTinyLabradorretriever-max-1mb

The premise behind this storyline is simple Nadine works for a government agency that apprehends hardened criminals that have gone AWOL.
Along with her partner, she is hot on the trail of convicted killer Adrian who has been convicted of brutally murdering his submissive.
Nadine feels this one personally; despite her trying to stay detached and manages while recapturing Adrian to earn his own brand of personal hatred.
When their charter plane encounters difficulties mid-flight and crashes Adrian and Nadine are the sole survivors.
The roles these two started out with are dramatically reversed; Jailor becomes prisoner and the prisoner holds all the cards and is damn sure ready to use them all to his advantage.
I think someones definitely got a case of bruised feelings here.

images.jpg

So this is where our story really takes off and it’s fabulous.
Adrian in control making Nadine pay for every little slight while he in a way punishes here for her past treatment of him.
I have to be honest here I was struggling initially with whether I could grow to like Adrian as he just seemed so cold and single-minded in his interactions and overall mindset.

giphy (1).gif

no matter as the story unfolded, I began to warm to him as he gradually started to redeem himself.
The slow gradual burn between Nadine and Adrian really appealed to me.
I would have liked him maybe to show a bit more in terms of feelings as the book progressed.
But that was just more of a personal preference; I do like my dramatic declarations of loves and devotion and sadly that for me was missing here.
We do get the eventual HEA here, but it was just a little anti-climatic for my liking.
This had plenty of action and was super enjoyable, do be aware it is slightly dub-con in nature but that was half the draw here for me.
The eventual connection between Adrian and Nadine here was completely consensual just initially this does skate the boundaries please avoid if that is at all an issue for you.
So yeh my removing half a star was mainly due to the lack of emotional declarations something about seeing a tough grown man brought to his knees by the fairer sex just gets me all a quiver.
despite my above gripe, this was still a fantastic read that I really did enjoy.
So Imagine a naughtier version of the Blue Lagoon (Love that film) one with lots of spankings and you’re halfway there with picturing this.
This may be my first Jane Henry book but It definitely is not going to be my last.

He conquers her, body and soul.
Makarios of Kronos is a rebel, a smuggler who reports to no one, not even those on Rogue 5. But one betrayal sends him to a Coalition brig, and to a fate worse than death—capture by the Hive. He escapes but exchanges one prison for another. He now lives on the Colony, contaminated and deemed a risk. He’ll do anything to regain his freedom, including agree to a bargain with a beautiful, cunning warrior with secrets of her own.

Gwendolyn Fernandez volunteered to defend Earth from the Hive menace. For four years, she was a valued member of Coalition ReCon, until the Hive caught up with her, and a strange Nexus creature took special interest in her integration.

Gwen escaped with super-human strength and a will to live that cannot be broken, until the governor of the Colony demands she choose a mate. A bargain with Makarios seems so simple until he conquers her in a way no other has—body and soul—yet the Hive Nexus who wanted her for himself won’t take no for an answer.

Really enjoyed “Rogue Cyborg” for some reason I could have sworn I had already read this author before; my bad, I so haven’t weird that as I was convinced I had mmm strange one that.

tenor.gif

Well anyway, nope this is definitely a new author for me but one I would definitely read again.
This was book 6 in the Interstellar Brides series but I read it as a standalone and had no issues following along with the current storyline.
Everything is fairly self-explanatory here and it was really easy to get lost in this rich well-developed sci-fi story.
I do so love me a good alien romance and “Rogue Cyborg” delivered in spades.
It was fast paced well imagined and super sexy.
I adored both Mak and Gwen they made such a fabulous couple and I was rooting for them all the way here.
This was told in dual POV my favourite and was so smokin hot I needed a bucket of the cold stuff to extinguish the burn.
This had a great secondary cast and if you have read the previous books in this series prepare to get re-acquainted to some past staring players.
All in all, this was a fun read that totally captured my imagination and If you like a bit of the old Sci-Fi romance like myself then this one will probably be your flavour.
This gets a definite seal of approval from moi.

ARC BOOK REVIEW
Release Date-17/7/18

Well, well well, what a surprise this was.
So after previously deciding against ARC reading this; as well if I’m honest as much as I love age gap romances they don’t really work for me when its a younger man older women.
I know double standard and all, buts that’s just the way I roll.
I can only think of one instance when the above trope has worked for me; a story by Carian cole so I usually avoid younger man romances like the plague.
But after reading a small taster of the first couple chapters the author sent my way I was actually extremely intrigued here and after much internal deliberation decided to give “The Age Between Us” Duo a whirl.
I already knew I liked this author as have read previous works of hers and really enjoyed them but was still a bit apprehensive as this is not usually my thing.
Well bloody hell!! really taken aback here; this was absolutely brilliant in every way that counts.
That’s not to say I am going to go out and read all the Y/M books out there I’m, not a convert or anything, far from it but this is definitely my exception to the rule.
This book ticked all my boxes on every level.
It raised the bar and then some.
It wove such an intricate web easily pulling me into the addictive storyline.
I don’t think I have any criticisms here with “Old Enough” except it ended too soon.
I liked Jane very much but it was Brian who stole the show for me I adored him.
His maturity was way over the usual nineteen-year-olds.
His upbringing and background bringing such a maturity of character to the table; he seemed so very self-aware and also responsible with the added obligation of his mother and sister.
He’s all about his family and making things easier for them.
And his confidence in his own sexuality well it was bloody red-hot its no wonder Jane couldn’t hold out shes only human and Brian may be the younger of the two but he’s a man in all the ways that count and that included taking charge; He likes to be the one in control.
And while this does mainly concentrate on the connection being forged between Jane and Brian.
There was also a lot of underlying storylines being intertwined such as how these two originally were brought together and issues Brian has going on with the local gang boss.
This seemed to be mostly about building the trust but I’m expecting everything to implode dramatically in book two with all the story threads connecting, can’t wait.
So “Old Enough” has some really diverse characters all so different.
And while I adored some others were complete jerks.
I hated Janes Ex-Husband and his new flavour; but also felt that Jane needed to go nuclear on their butts.
She’s been a bit of a doormat in her past and now her present and there not surprisingly taking the piss.
I’m hoping they get there comeuppance very soon.
I also didn’t like Janes friend she was a grade A Biotch; there’s telling it as it is and then there’s backstabbing besties, shes reeks of the latter in my opinion and is no friend to Jane.
I hope Karma comes and stabs her in the eye.
Also Janes daughter; well shes a bit of a selfish brat but she has been taught it’s all about her so you can hardly blame the girl; I really felt for Jane when she seemed to be losing out with Abby but I would have gone postal at the blatant disregard my Ex had for my role as mother here; just saying.
So I’m really looking forward to the next book here like jumping up and down with such anticipation.
I have a feeling things are really going to come to a head, it’s going to be epic I hope.
I really can’t recommend this enough so please don’t be put off by the age gap here; I’m so glad I put aside my preconceptions and gave this a chance or I would have missed this bloody fantastic read.

🍁ARC BOOK REVIEW🍁

Release Date-6th July 2018
Genre-Sci-Fi Romance
Kindle Edition

 

The Celestial Mates agency always knows what – or who – you need. 

Tarrik would do anything to avoid breaking his mother’s heart, so he begrudgingly signs up for Celestial Mates and agrees to come home and settle down once the agency finds his match. There’s just one catch: he’s not ready to give up his free and easy life travelling the galaxy. And he’s doing exactly as his mother asked, so what will it hurt if he makes himself as unappealing as possible on his mate application?

Juliette is a woman on the run. Her attitude, and more importantly her hacking skills, have pissed off all the wrong people. Now the target of a contract hit, she’s decided the solution to her problems is to leave the planet as fast as she can. The Celestial Mates program is exactly what she needs. By the time her “mate” realizes she’s impossible to live with, hopefully, it will be safe for her to return to earth. She wasn’t counting on a seriously hot alien who looked like the devil and could do the most sinful things with his tail…

The sparks fly at first meeting when their chemistry ignites. But they can barely stand to be in the same room with each other.

They shouldn’t work at all.

But Celestial Mates always knows best.

ARC BOOK REVIEW
Release Date-6/7/18

What’s not to like here; Mated on Hades was a fun interesting read that kept me entertained throughout.
This was not especially long; which for me can sometimes be a bit of a deterrent to my overall enjoyment I found it didn’t really affect my experience that much here.
I loved the idea of Celestial Mates of different species being paired up, finding it such a fascinating concept to read about.
This one had such great imaginative world building and was one I was especially looking forward to delving into and it certainly didn’t disappoint, pulling me in and capturing my attention right from the onset.
I also adored the physical appearance of Tarrik with his horns, wings and all that smouldering heat finding it strangely hot and extremely sexy.
And man; that tentacle/Tail was super smokin it had a bloody mind all of its own; loved it, it was like it had its own separate individual personality.
Tarrik was also such a big man-child with his prickly personality; totally spitting his dummy out in regards to his little human Juliette and her perceived usefulness.
Totally loving the single life and captaining his ship with his rag-tag crew through space on his family’s trading vessel he thinks he’s living the dream and there’s no room in it for a useless pesky human.
Juliette herself was a very practical girl; a genius when it comes to technology and used to relying soling on herself due to lack of family entanglements it has also left her with a serious case of baggage.
with abandonment and trust issues she has closed off her heart with a brick wall.
On the run from some self-created trouble back on her home planet, Juliette plans to lie low till the dust settles.
Tarriks parents, mainly his mother want him to settle down with a mate so this is how these two very different individuals end up being paired together by Celestial and rubbing each other up in all the right and wrong ways.
And get ready to watch the sparks fly as these two sure turn up that heat in more ways than one.
So this one was a mega fun read and though short packed a real punch.
It was very easy to get lost in and had just the right mix of ingredients to hold my attention.
It had some great characters along with such incredibly fun world building a super enjoyable experience overall.
A big thumbs up from me folks.

40240057

🌹ARC BOOK REVIEW🌹

Release Date-30th June 2018
Genre-Sci-Fi Romance
Kindle Edition

Steel is TOTALLY a standalone read.

Baz Rutland 

A lost soul, a cyborg in search of a future. He aims to upgrade his most intimate tool and BIG and HARD will do, but what does a man really need to be perfect again?

Ember 

A Principle Data extraction expert employed by CESS Industries – a princess in lay terms. She’s in search of her past and her parents but who is she really? If she ever finds out who killed her parents, she will rain destruction down upon them, in some nerd-geek way, like by remote-opening the airlocks on their ship so they die horribly.

Her biggest secret and fetish is her love of the BIG guys, like the orcs, but she would never ever act on that unless she had nothing left to lose.

Hoss 

Half-Orc, half Shag, and a hairy beast, he shaves to blend into the mass of humanity populating the galaxies. All he has ever wanted is to be wanted in return, to be loved and find a mate. But what hope of that when he’s a rejected half-breed?

Warning: 
Like PREY, this book is not gritty uber-dark such as Cari Silverwood often writes. It is the pansy dark you reach for when you’re all darked out and one step from seeing a therapist. 

It’s carnal, naughty, and very twisted, and not what your mother ever wanted you to read. Also, there may be some robots that go PEW PEW.

“Hey. Cyborg Man. Is this a good day for rescuing princesses?”

So I bloody adored “Steel” like just so much; it was such a mish-mash of carnal, sci-fi delight with a dash of slapstick humour and a big glug of ridiculousness to accompany its also surprisingly emotive trio.
I am such a mega nerd for weird-ass shenanigans and this book had it going on in absolute spades.
Enough to satisfy even the most ardent of fornication outside the species zealots.
And here to quote the cyber-monks themselves we get treated to a big fat dollop of down and dirty Orc/Human/Cyborg porn and is it wrong that whilst also curling my toes with totally salacious delight my heart itself was also doing a pitter patter of pure bliss whenever that big sexy and did I mention big; yep I did; ( brain kinda short-circuiting here folks ) Orc/Shag up and purred for his potential mate.
Not gonna lie here; I’m such a sucker for any throaty deep purr of the feline sort, so totally suggestive and seductive in its purpose and intent.
Cross that with a crabby but amped up Cyborg and I’m in heaven; like a kid in a sweetshop with an overabundance of goodies, that’s me.
“Steel” was a raunchy romp totally worthy of its slapstick label and I mean that as a total compliment here people.
The main protagonist’s of this story here are one; Ember, Human of unknown origin, PRINCESS of CESS Industries.
A Principle Data extractor extraordinaire in fact with a weird invisible friend and a self-assigned quest to discover her past Ancestry.
Two; Hoss A mixed breed of Orc/Shag parentage employed by CESS as Embers guard and protector; a huge sexy beast with a massive penchant for his luscious charge and a very real desire to make her his mate no matter how much their particular union would be frowned upon.
And finally Three Baz; a grumpy disgruntled Cyborg who along with his crew is trawling the dead-space in his junk bucket of a ship; just looking to rescue a Princess for the Cyber-monks in return for an upgrade of the intimate variety.
So that’s the main gist here really and when these three misfits destinies collide its a non-stop race of classic one-liners, ridiculous plotlines and some seriously filthy hook-ups that as well as being pure smut was also so much fun to kick back and just revel in..
It’s almost like a carry on film of the sci-fi steampunk variety and I myself inhaled the cockamamie Narrative like it was oxygen and the more farcical and absurd events played out; the more I devoured like the whole nine yards and more.
So “Steel” is like seriously knicker dripping or dropping fine.
Everything wrong about this also makes it so right.
I had a mega hard-on (If I had one that Is) for Hoss; such a delicious Orc/Shag, I adored his furry ass like a whole bloody lot.
He for me was hands down my favourite thing in this whole Zany pantomime; with Maybe Baz’s Monster mechanical appendage coming in a very close second.
What can I say; I am a female after all and Baz’s cyborg enhancements well let’s just say Anne summers eat your heart out.
Hoss was the one ultimately in charge of this threeway here and for me, that worked you know with me being like his own personal fan club and all.
I was all for the Hoss.
So I think its safe to say here from my above noise I really was digging the whole entire she-bang here.
This isn’t really going to be for everyone of course, but if you like something a bit out of the box and outside the traditional then maybe take a chance on this, you might even surprise yourself.
On a side-note, the Orc featured here Hoss is way up on the attractive scale despite his monobrow; and not at all like the minging ORCS from Tolkien; just saying; being The official Spokeswoman for the Hoss fan-club and all wanted to put that out there.
Don’t Diss the Hoss he’s a total Orc babe

ARC BOOK REVIEW
Release Date-13/6/18

“Sage’s Surrender” is the first book I have read by this author and while I did ultimately enjoy this; I also had some slight issues as well.
So my positives first; This was an age-gap romance which is one of my all-time favourite tropes.
I really can’t get enough of this type of story; it’s a real guilty pleasure of mine in romance fiction.
This was well-written and very engaging and had a great cast of characters that kept me invested and entertained throughout.
It was told in dual POV; which I prefer and had just the right balance of action, suspense and angst to pique my interest.
In my opinion, though part of the Hell’s Riders series this can definitely be read as a standalone; I did no issues and I easily followed along.
This was a relatively easy read and despite this being set in an MC Club; I didn’t find it especially that dark either.
Don’t get me wrong; there was a definite stain here, but my depravity meter is actually set way-way high, probably due to all the disturbing stuff I actually inhale; so by my standards, this was actually relatively tame in comparison.
I also was really digging sage’s manly Vibe; he was such hunk of a man and after finally throwing in the towel and succumbing to his feelings towards Brook he only became hotter in my eyes.
A man who goes after what he wants disregarding societies rules is just so darn sexy.
Now for my issues, I disliked how in the beginning Sage blew hot and cold with Brook; I thought he really wasn’t being fair to her sending her such mixed messages.
He really should have made a choice either way and just gone with it instead of almost playing with her emotions just because he couldn’t control his baser urges.
But the main kicker here for me was Brook herself; she was such a wingy spoilt child; I really found it extremely difficult at first to warm up to her, like even a smidgen and I really did struggle to comprehend how a grown man would be interested romantically in such a juvenile Little girl; and I’m talking about her outward behaviour here not her actual age; as that in my opinion is really just a number.
I was so pleased when she finally quit the stroppy teenage tantrums, this gave me a chance to actually warm up to her without the added distraction of her constant juvenile behaviour as background noise.
Finally, there was some really hypocritical behaviour on someone’s part here and also in regards to where we eventually ended up that didn’t really sit that right with me.
That’s all I can say here; without letting the cat out of the bag, but you’ll definitely get what I mean when you read about it.
The ending here could also have been better for me, I wasn’t a big fan; finding it actually kind of anti-climatic overall, but I must say I did really love that epilogue; it was ever so charming indeed.
So taking everything here into consideration while I did enjoy this and found it mostly a positive experience there were just some slight tweaks that for me would have given this a much higher eventual score; overall this still had many more positives than negatives.

With subs being murdered at a Miami BDSM club, experienced dominant Agent Seth Wilkinson must find his own submissive to “entice” a killer. When he’s paired with Agent Baker Daley he wonders just how much a straight man can fake.

Baker Daley knows he can “play the part”; he just needs a chance to prove it to Wilkinson. Being a straight man should have no bearing when his Domme has trained him well in the practice and lifestyle of submission. After all, this is just a job, right?

One scene. One intuitive Dom. One sassy sub. The game is afoot…in more ways than one.

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.

Pushing her away is my only option.
Yet her stubborn, sassy mouth and beautiful eyes weaken me.

Then blood is spilled once more, and I’ll forever live with the guilt.

Can light find its way through my darkness?

ARC BOOK REVIEW

So I’ve got a bit of a dilemma with this one; as much as I did enjoy “Ruthless” there were also some major red flags here that brought this story down from what would have been a five star read; to a four star one.
Don’t mistake them this is an excellent piece of fiction, and I stress fiction as there may be some major triggers in this takes no prisoners tale; This is raw graphic and violent at times and does feature; (view spoiler) Which I’m only disclosing in case this is a cause for concern for some; I really don’t want to spoil this story for others but just thought the reader should be aware in case of actual triggers.
And on a side-note here I was extremely bemused and somewhat astounded that this is then not discussed or visited upon in any shape or form further.
I mean like zero mention; whats with that; I found this fact slightly shocking.
But moving on from that I still rated this four stars despite reservations because of A) This was fabulously written; that is one thing this book cannot be faulted on; the writing style used here was warm and inviting and had a style that was just so easy to relate and get sucked in by.
And B) despite Callan being a complete tosser at times I also really liked the way his broken psyche complemented and connected to Madi’s almost completing a jigsaw of jaggedness.
Their pieces just fit together so nicely; two broken halves of a whole.
Alone they were surviving, but as a pair, they were not fixed but their imperfect parts acted almost like a glue.
Loved the fact that both Madison and Callan were slightly defective in nature: I’m a big sucker for disjointed Love stories and this certainly did tick all my boxes in that department.
My other major red flag and it is more of a personal preference than anything else: I don’t like either my H or h to be either pursuing or engaging in relations or sexual antics; EVEN IF IT’S NOT ACTUAL SEX!!!; I still don’t like it; with anyone else.
It just spoils it for me and while this book was not as bad as the previous in series I’m not sure as much as I did enjoy this; If I want to continue; If this is going to become a pattern in the “Sins Of Seven” series then I think I’m out.
This was written in dual POV my favourite and I easily read it in one sitting.
It was extremely graphic in terms of language and I must admit I did adore that about it.
Callan is one dirty boy or should I say man as I think he’s thirty-seven here and Madison is twenty-one; so a bit of an age gap there: which is also my bag; love an age-gap.
This is the second of this series I’ve read and I did prefer this one over “Indulge”.
What else?
There were only a few side characters here; the majority of the action is between Callan and Madi.
Oh, and on a final note we have two excellent epilogues one from Madi’s POV and the other from Callan’s; that was a nice touch.
So that’s it folks; this was a well written engaging book that I had some slight issues with at times but I still did really enjoy.
I’ll leave the ball in your court now. It all really depends on your own personal boundaries.
