Joshua Edward Smith – Duality

REVIEW

If you read the first book in this series, you can understand how it was nearly impossible not to start reading this book. Fortunately, I had the pleasure of not having to wait between finishing book 1 and book 2.

Book 2 continues with a flare of originality. In the sea of many repetitive books, I give a lot of credence to the newness of the material. Also, the heat is turned up a bit higher in book 2.

Following a 10 month time lapse in the story between book 1 and book 2, the relationship between Lisa and Sir takes on a physical relationship.

Sir’s personality or needs (I’m not even quite sure what the proper reference word would be) is not very likable.  That is not intended to be a negative about the book. Hatred for a character makes for a good read sometimes. I admit to having hopes that Sir would eventually redeem himself. I’ll keep that opinion to myself. I will say that I do believe that Sir’s final moments seem to be out of character. I had a difficult time reconciling his final choices.

There is a large cast of characters in this book. I would have liked to have had the chance to know Annie a bit more.

BLURB

Lisa and Sir have finally managed to balance their kinky love life with the vanilla world of suburbia. But when Sir starts training a sexy young submissive, the strength of his relationship with Lisa is tested. Could polyamory be the key to maintaining the stability Lisa needs while giving Sir the variety he craves? This captivating sequel to Entropy is a provocative journey through the complex world of physical and virtual sexuality.

Thank You Arc to Joshua Edward Smith!

Samantha A. Cole – Tickle His Fancy (Trident Security Book 6)

REVIEW

BEST of the Trident Security Series!! Samantha Cole is one of the few authors that gets how to balance Romance and Suspense perfectly.  She keeps the two elements distinct, but gives equal importance to each.  The romantic side is HOT! She also has an extreme talent for writing gritty crime scenes without crossing the lines that make romance readers want to stop reading.

Brody has two fantastic sides: a hard chiseled body and a soft caring side. He’s incredibly patient, too.  I love how he recognizes the difference between making love and passionate sex.

Fancy, short for Francine, is baker.  A girl after my own heart as I love to bake.  I found it easy to relate to her and therefore immediately got sucked into the story.

I really respect how the author incorporated the side characters.  I won’t give away spoilers.  Even though their lines were minimal their roles were significant.  For me, the use of these characters make this my favorite book in the series!

Of course Trident Security Book 7 (CARTER’S STORY) is set to be released in Oct. 2016. YES! Sigh! Drool! Heart Flutter, 😉

BLURB

All around him, Brody ‘Egghead’ Evans’s Trident Security teammates have fallen in love and gotten their happily ever after. Ironically, they had always thought the charismatic Dominant would be the first one to fall—not the last. While helping his boss’s fiancée find a new bakery for their wedding cake, he finds himself drooling—not over the delicious confections, but the sweet baker who’d created them.

The lone survivor, Francine ‘Fancy’ Maguire’s world was destroyed when her husband and unborn baby perished in a horrific car accident. Three years later, she is finally shedding the dark shroud she was existing under and starting to live once more. When a handsome customer takes an interest in her, he sparks something deep within her that she never expected to feel again. But will she dare to give love another try?

With a killer on the loose and an unknown vandal targeting Fancy’s business, Brody finds plenty of reasons to keep her close. Can he break through the steel barrier she has wrapped around her heart? Or will he lose her before he can convince her to take a second chance on love?
