Samantha Cole – Topping the Alpha (Trident Security #4)

This book goes from seriously hot to hilariously funny to suspenseful to heart-felt.

Samantha Cole writes BDSM well!  It’s hot without being over the top.  Jake’s punishments are creative and inspire a burning need (Oops! don’t want to give a way too much).  Unlike most other BDSM books, it’s not all about hard and soft limits.  Jake is equally concerned about respecting his sub.  He isn’t into public humiliation, but expects complete submissiveness behind private doors.  He’s a master of whips, but has the sense to ensure his sub finds subspace and not just sinks into a bad mental state due to his military training.

I love how the author breaks up the intensity with a little humor.  Whether it is Nick talking aloud to his dick or Ian grumbling about not getting any, the comedic timing is impeccable.  Carter delivers a line that is so funny that I accidentally spit coffee on my iPad.  (I’m impatiently waiting for Carter’s story)

Whether it’s the anticipation or reactions, coming out of the closet involves drama.  It is easier for some than others.  Cole does a thoughtful job of addressing this issue in the story.

Finally, the suspense is fresh and new and ties in to the story nicely.

Laura Kaye – “Hard To Come By”

Unknown

This is Book 3 in the Hard Ink series (although don’t skip 2.5 it was really good).  This is one of those series that gets better, book by book.

I adore the character Derek aka Marz.  Derek considers himself the “brains and beauty of the operation.”  His personality is what really sets himself apart.  His ability to make others laugh during the most stressful and dangerous moments is one of his most attractive features.  Speaking of his features, more specifically his physical features, he is decorated with many tattoos, not all of which are shown on the cover.  To quote the character Emilie, “Holy Shit, Derek.”  I guess I’ll have to use my imagination to picture all of his other tattoos.
