Review

This is a great story with a remarkable blend of romance, heat, regret, jealousy, inner turmoil, and a touch of love of animals.

There are plenty of overlapping story lines to keep the pace moving.  The unexpected twists kept it interesting, too.

The steamy scenes were hot enough to ignite a barn fire.

If you like spicy romance, this is a must read book.

Blurb

Nick Escrow is the most eligible bachelor in the Warnum-Bailiff district. The handsome vet is suave, sexy and intelligent, and considered the ultimate gentleman. But Nick has a dark, sexual side to him that he discovers after his brother is incarcerated for supposed sex crimes. In an attempt to understand his brother and the girls Jamie had been found with, Nick discovers a depravity of his own.
Guilt over Jamie’s conviction and subsequent jail term plagues Nick and creates an inner beast that demands attention. The type that can be found at the hands of a dominatrix. Very aware that his two worlds need to be kept separate, Nick plays the role of the complete gentleman in public, maintaining a flawless persona, whilst his activity behind closed doors gives him the outlet he requires to hold all the pieces together.
Creating and ideal that he tries to live by, Nick starts dating Kiera, a quiet admin assistant, who’s breeding and upbringing make her the perfect partner to raise him higher in aristocratic circles. Kiera is sweet and pretty but when Nick meets Sue, he finds himself inexplicably drawn to her. Nick is driven to distraction with his own feelings for Sue and finds that he needs to rethink his whole life plan. Does he want the “perfect” life, or does he want to be truly happy?

Warning: Adults Only (18+) This book contains descriptive sex scenes and may offend some readers.

Excerpt:

“Her mind still in its post climatic fog, Sue was unable to control her responses. She screamed a primal shout as Nick thrust his tongue and fingers into her. Nick grinned. This was exactly where he’d wanted her, with primal need and desire. Standing up, Nick’s eyes glittered as he looked over her body. Sue sighed. She needed to feel his cock inside her and finally he looked like he was going to oblige. But he looked down at her as he continued to stroke his length, running his finger over the bead at the head of his penis, all the while still maintaining the contact of his fingertips to her folds.

“You want this?” he asked, emphasising “this” by pushing his hips forward and holding his erection out towards her.

Sue nodded, biting her lip in anticipation.

“I want you to beg me for it,” he told her as he pulled his cock back closer to himself.

“Please Nick,” Sue asked, but even she could hear that there wasn’t enough plea in her voice.

Shaking his head, Nick sank to his knees again and devoured her sex. This time there was no licking and flicking. When Nick went down on her again there was nothing delicate about it. Shoving his face into her mound, he thrust his tongue in and out as he nuzzled her, his nose rubbing against her clit as he mercilessly drove her to the point of climax again, pulling away before she came again.”

REVIEW

I LOVED THIS BOOK!  I feel like I could say that over and over and it would actually sum up how I felt about book.  This book falls into that category where I am completely happy with the book (which very rarely happens).

Allie is the perfect female: strong, determined, and unbelievably intuitive.  She can see through Micah’s bullshit.  She also holds true to the lines that she refuses to cross.  I refuse to offer any spoilers, but I’ll just say this … the underlying bond between Allie and Micah made this book feel very believable.

Micah is an interesting character that ultimately needs to forgive himself.  His journey is well written and paced with perfection.

This isn’t a whip and chains type of BDSM book.  It’s more about control and dominance.  I only mention that because some people hear that there is BDSM in a book and they completely freak out.

Finally, I really enjoyed the character of Darius.  The way that he cares for his sister, Allie, is very endearing.  I hope he gets his own story soon.

BLURB

Real estate mogul Micah Holt exerts absolute control over all aspects of his life. He keeps his dark side hidden away from the press, who will chase down any hint of scandal. He’s always in command of his world, careful to expose his closely guarded secrets only to those he knows he can trust. Then Allie Bennett shakes his legendary discipline. She’s beautiful, pure, untainted. But is Micah willing to sacrifice her innocence for his own selfish obsessions?

When that sexy smile makes her body burn, Allie tries with all her might to ignore it. For one thing, Micah’s her new boss. For another, he’s as complicated as he is devastatingly handsome. Still, Allie can only fight so much before she gives in to his dangerous games. She knows he’s got dark secrets. But when she discovers the true depth of his pain, Allie must decide how far she’s willing to go to light the way for love.

Bound Beneath His Pain is intended for mature audiences. 

Thank You Arc to Stacey Kennedy!

Brian C. Copper – The Room

31d0m19Pg8L._SX386_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg

Synopsis:

David and Max meet during the worst snowstorm in recent history when Max, a patrolman in the fictional town of Fullerton, MA becomes stranded at David’s house.

Max soon discovers that David has a secret BDSM playroom in his basement and their adventures begin, bringing them closer as they discover new things about themselves and each other.

Other characters are introduced with time jumps into David’s past, as story lines interweave throughout, exploring various sexual themes between adult gay men.

Review: 

This isn’t a typical gay romance story.  It’s gritty in both an emotional and sexual sense.

There are varying levels of BDSM scattered throughout the book.  The author is extremely descriptive.  I may be female (so I can’t truly understand) but one part in particular had me screaming in my head, “That’s got to hurt!”

David doesn’t just serve as a Dom that stages scenes and dishes out pain and pleasure.  He’s also serves as a “spiritual guider” in the sense that he helps these men open themselves up to accepting their own desires.

The style of this book reminded me of the movie Valentine’s Day where a lot of tangential characters weave themselves together.  It is not until the very end that all the connections are made.  Well done!

Lastly, the aspect that I liked the most was the author’s cheeky way with words that is speckled throughout the book.

RELEASE DAY: Samantha A. Cole – Watching from the Shadows

final-cover-wfts-with-trident.jpg

The Sexy Six Pack is back and just as hot as ever.

Marco ‘Polo’ DeAngelis makes for a sexy Dom.  He steps up in numerous ways when challenges are presented to him.  He’s got his priorities in order.  And, he’s very creative in a playroom.  😉

Harper is an attorney.  It’s great to see a sub that can be intelligent and in a powerful career position.

Portrait of young romantic heterosexual couple

Awesome gratuitous threesome scene.  Sure, it wasn’t exactly critical to the story.  It does show a bit of willingness on the part of the Dom.  I love that it is the first time that a certain obvious stumbling block was addressed in the middle of this scene.  So, in response to such an added bonus – thank you.

Watching From the Shadows

The author does a great job of layering the elements of suspense in the story.  I also liked how the Trident security team worked with local law enforcement as opposed acting completely above the law without consequences.

As per usual in the awesome series, the entire cast makes a significant presence in the story.

Laurell K. Hamilton – Jason (audio book)

51tF7dlutKL._SX308_BO1,204,203,200_

This is the #23 in the Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter Series.

I originally read this book in December 2014 and just recently listened to the audiobook.  As discussed below – the story is great.  The audio book is fantastic, too.  The voice of Anita is spot on.  An added bonus for the audio book – I was able to multi-task while listening to book.

While the Anita Blake series is usually very high on the paranormal side, this particular book is not.  It’s more like an insight into the polyamorous lifestyle.  Or as Jason said in the book, “It’s like a lesbian tutorial.”

For those of you who have not read the series, Anita Blake is an incredibly strong female character and I don’t mean her paranormal or metaphysical strength.  She is incredibly brave.  She sees no other options than facing her fears.  In Jason, it is surprising to learn that some things can still make her blush.  Read Jason, and find out what could possibly make Anita be unsure of herself in a bedroom setting.  In the book, Anita says, “I was so far outside my comfort zone I couldn’t see it from the shore anymore.  I felt lost at sea, but determined to weather the storm, even if it was a storm formed of soft flesh and silk.”

While Jason is usually a jokester, he pushes Anita to answer difficult questions.  “Are you really willing to spend the rest of your life trying to date someone you not only don’t love, but that you actually don’t enjoy having sex with?”

This is an awesome series!  Even if paranormal romance is not your thing, READ this book.
