Joshua Edward Smith – Gravity (Entropy Book 3)

REVIEW

Sequels are difficult to write well but a trilogy is even more difficult. Gravity offers a great end to this story. There are sufficient time lapses to make things more interesting. The change in relationship status between the characters over time is done remarkably well. I didn’t find the sex factor as compelling as in the previous two books. But hey, that is simply my opinion. Nevertheless, the ending of the book was sensational. For those, like me, that need to see the resolution in characters’ lives, this is a must read novel.

BLURB

A chance meeting brings Sir and Lisa together after five years. But Sir is in a budding relationship and Lisa’s life is in chaos. Could a radical change in Sir’s situation finally let things work between them? Gravity is a complex and moving exploration of the turmoil older people face bringing romance and commitment back to single life.

Although the third in the Entropy series, this novel can be read as a standalone.

S. L. Finlay – Billionaire’s Little Sweetheart

billionaires-little

REVIEW

This is a sweet little taste of an age play story. I use the term age play over Daddy/little because the relationship seemed a bit contrived. In fact, Cindy is a drama major in college, which seriously affected the believability. If you are looking for something out of the ordinary, you might want to give this book a shot.

There were parts of the book that were done quite well – the kind that pull at your heart. I would give this book … 3 STARS.

BLURB

When Cindy, a broke college student, who is tired of eating ramen, and borrowing money from her folks for text books, gets evicted from her dorm after a wild party thrown by her roommate, while she was away, the wrongfully accused finds an interesting housing ad in the paper.

A well-to-do older man, will allow her to stay with him for free, in her own self-contained apartment on his property right near campus, in exchange for a few hours cleaning a week. The deal seems too good to be true.

Cindy meets the rich older man, and quickly finds she would have done anything he asked, even if she didn’t need housing this badly.

He seems to take a shining to Cindy, letting her know after their expectantly long meeting regarding the room, that it’s hers if she wants it. He can hold it for as long as she needs.

When she agrees to move in though, the older man gives her a contract outlining her life living there. She will not only receive free accommodation, but also an allowance for personal expenses. Among other things, the contract says that she has to call him ‘Daddy’ and consent to wear ‘approved clothing’ when she is home.

Even with the oddness of his requests, Cindy feels she can trust this man, so she agrees to sign her new Daddy’s contact, and hands over control of much of her living situation to this man.

When she hands over control, he lets her into his heart. This is a fast-paced, sexy age play romance.

Warning: This romance novel includes scenes depicting sex acts, BDSM, and age play. If any of these things offend you don’t buy the book.

Brian C. Copper – Origins

origins

REVIEW

This is a rare book that is written from a male Dom’s perspective by a male. It is a continuous flow of originality. Unlike most romance books that portray men’s emotions in exaggerated ways, David comes across much more real.

David is an interesting character.  He is confident from a young age. Seems to have endless patience, in total control, and has excellent intuition when it comes to people and what they need. He is the type of character that you want to know more about and what makes the book a good read.

While I really liked the interweaving story arcs, it made it a little difficult to fully enjoy the story.

BLURB

Book Two of The Fullerton Chronicles finds us venturing back to the beginning stages of several of David’s playmates. Each of them give us more insight into how David has evolved from his simple curious beginnings to a much sought after Dom. Interweaving story arcs trace paths across different starting points in David’s timeline. Each moving forward to the present, revealing more layers of who he was, will be, and currently is. This is Not your Dad’s Gay Male Erotica with BDSM themes. This is full-on Donkeypunch.

REVIEW

What a well-done action packed novella! I’m not usually a fan of novellas because I generally prefer to get to know to the characters more intensely. This story is full of tasty scenes that leave you feeling very satisfied like a 7 course meal. Dane is smoldering hot and posses all the wonderful qualities of a dominant romance character. The heat between Dane and Jasmine is searing.

If all novellas were this good, I would read more.

BLURB

When Dane Brawley whips out his cuffs,
there’s only one thing I can do… relent.

When Jasmine Archer purrs my name,
there’s only one thing I can do… relent.

He’s got talent’s I didn’t think a man could possess.

She’s got a body I could get addicted to.

Will one night be enough?
Or will Hollywood’s newest star and Los Angeles’ sexy cop find a forever in the City of Angels?

*This is book one in the duet and has no cliffhanger. Each book will feature a different couple. This is a short, dirty read. 18+ ONLY due to a filthy mouthed alpha and explicit sex scenes.

Ruby Stallion – Naomi’s Sexy Thanksgiving (Sexy Holiday Series Book 1)

REVIEW

I thought this would be a fun read during my Thanksgiving morning work out. It did keep me entertained while exercising on the stair master. However, I was unaware that this was the first book in a holiday series. My bad. So I was a bit shocked that the story ends abruptly in a cliffhanger.

As a first book in the series, it was a decent beginning. I tend not to fall in love with books quickly.

I would definitely keep your eyes out for this series as it comes to completion. I think the series in its entirety has good potential.

About This Story

When a small town girl goes to the big city to focus on her career, she quickly realizes the differences between the people and her small town and the people in the big city. Especially the men!

All Naomi wanted was a Thanksgiving romance. What starts off as a woman settling for someone because she didn’t want to be alone during the holiday winds up being a sexy story of an erotic love triangle between her former love in her small home town and her new big city lover. Self-pleasure, good looking people, holiday spirit and the erotic fantasy mind of Ruby Stallion makes this a good erotic story.

Note: This eBook is an erotic short story that is part of a sexy series collection of short stories that take place during the holidays. If you enjoy sexy love/sexy romance, erotica mixed in with a holiday atmosphere then this erotic romance story is for you.

About The Sexy Holiday Series

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.

REVIEW

This book breaks the standard formula for a romance novel. First, the concept of an online romance is uniquely fantastic. To make things more interesting, it is a D/s relationship.  Coincidentally, I had just first heard of the concept of an online D/s relationship a few days before I started reading the book. I felt like I was reading an entirely new genre, which was new and exciting.

The ebb and flow of the developing relationship is less linear than most romance novels.  There are a number of issues that derail or set-back the progression of the relationship.

The depth of Lisa’s feelings grow incrementally throughout the book. The author never seems to make those unexpected leaps that ruins the believability of the book.

I fell in love with Lisa’s character when she starts tweeting from her hospital bed.  (Hey, it’s in the first 20% of the book, which I’ve decided doesn’t count as a real spoiler). Her humor and strength completely endeared me to her.

Sir always says, “Excuse me?” when Lisa says something disrespectful. When I finished the book I screamed, “Excuse me!” Beware of cliffhanger.

BLURB

Lisa is adrift—searching for connection on social media to compensate for the absence of love and attention in her marriage. But when a dominant married man entices her to become his online submissive, Lisa’s world starts to collapse around her. Could giving up all control be the secret to finding the serenity she longs to have? Cerebral and erotic, Entropy explores the murky depths of an online affair and how upheaval of the status quo reverberates through a woman’s life and sense of self.
