REVIEW: Plus One by Cristal Ryder

Image
***This book was originally reviewed for My Secret Romance.*** ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Summary:Karen goes to her friend’s sex club for a pole dancing workshop, but things take a wild turn for her. Rob comes in as the owner’s plus one expecting to watch, but not participate. When he spots the timid Karen, things change for the both as they’re thrown together by the very people that brought them there. They embark on a steamy adventure and might just end up with a plus one of their own.
Thoughts:This is a little novella, and it is a really good one! The buildup to Karen and Rob’s experience is exquisite and the club sounds both intimidating and sinfully delightful. There’s not only the interaction between Karen and Rob to keep your attention, but some action all around adding to the heated and exciting atmosphere of the book.

Getting to Karen and Rob in particular, they start off in the pool before moving to a room, but this room isn’t very private. They pass other rooms on t…

Summary:Five Sexy Short Stories To Make Your Halloween Sizzle...

Pranks & Spanks - Rachel Firasek

REVIEW: Wicked Watchers - Looking at the Lads by Various Authors

Image
***This book was originally reviewed for My Secret Romance.*** ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Summary:Seven stories from seven different authors about men who’ve caught a show in various situations that led them to something better in their lives.







Thoughts:Other than some voyeurism and a little exhibitionism, there’s a little kink here and there. On occasion there’s some side action or the watcher is even invited to join. It’s a well-written and very fun, enjoyable collection of stories of delicious man lovin’. Here’s a little peek into each within this book.

My Lucky Night by AJ Jarrett – Cole’s friend dragged him to a sex club for the first time, but he finds so much more than he expected to on that lucky night. I don’t know what I was expecting, but it wasn’t this sweet and sensual tale. I really liked this one and only wanted more.

Boy, Can She Dance by Nephylim – A homeless boy, thrown out for being gay, seeks a place to bed down for the winter night and finds a warm spot under t…

The Pack or the Panther (Tales of the Harker Pack Series) By Tara Lain

Blurb:
Cole Harker, son of an alpha werewolf, is bigger and more powerful than most wolves, tongue-tied in groups, and gay. For twenty-four years, he’s lived to please his family and pack—even letting them promise him in marriage to female werewolf Analiese to secure a pack alliance and help save them from a powerful gangster who wants their land. Then Cole meets Analiese’s half-brother, panther shifter Paris Marketo, and for the first time, Cole wants something for himself.
When Analiese runs off to marry a human, Cole finally has a chance with Paris, but the solitary cat rejects him, the pack, and everything it represents. Then Cole discovers the gangster wants Paris too and won’t rest until he has him. What started as a land dispute turns into World War Wolf! But the bigger fight is the battle between cats and dogs.

REVIEW: Melt by Kitty Hunter

Image
Summary:Ronnie's Dom Luis has been threatening to give her a spanking, and after he gives her a taste of one in the spa massage room, she accepts her punishment later that evening, with her other Dom, Gavin helping Luis deliver her punishment.




Title:  Melt
Series:  Hidden Pleasures
Book #: 3
Author:  Kitty Hunter
Approximate Book Length:  27 Pages
Recommended Reader Age:  18+
Sexual Content:  Explicit

Thoughts:This one once again pushes boundaries, but in good ways. We get a front row seat as our trio irons out what their relationship means for them and it’s a sweet and very sexy journey. There are a couple little continuity issues, but nothing that derails the story. For a story so short, even in three parts, the author gets you invested in the characters and their outcome together really well, as well as leaves you wondering what other stories might be lurking in the Hidden Pleasures club.
Bottom Line:Melt is a satisfying conclusion to Luis, Gavin, and Ronnie’s sinfully sexy sto…

REVIEW: Unexpected Top by Cassandra Carr

Image
***This book was originally reviewed for My Secret Romance.*** ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Summary:Cissy feels taken for granted in her marriage and decides to try to take some control of the situation. Len’s into it at first since it involves sexual rewards, but spooks when he starts losing more control. Will Cissy’s experiment change them for the better or be the biggest mistake of her life?
Thoughts:A lot of times, romance books are about a new couple or a reunited couple, so it’s refreshing to read stories about a married couple. Cissy and Len have lost their chemistry and Cissy’s desperate to get back, along with some respect from her husband. In her research, she learns of a Female-Led-Relationship (FLR). She decides to take a chance and try some things. The rest of the story is about the results and their journey together.

One of the things that really stands out for me in this book is that research is done to fix a stale marriage. It’s about a random interest or whim, bu…

BLOG TOUR: Operation Saving Daniel by Nina Croft

Image
Thanks to Bewitching Book Tours for hosting this blog tour. I have Nina Croft, author of Operation: Saving Daniel here today. Welcome!
*****************************
Ten facts about Daniel…
I’m here to celebrate my latest release, Operation Saving Daniel. The book is part of Entangled Publishing’s Covet imprint—contemporary romance with a paranormal twist. Today, I thought I would talk a little about Daniel, the hero of the book. So here are ten facts about Daniel:

1. The book begins on Daniel’s twentieth birthday and ends on his thirtieth.

2. He was a virgin until the age of twenty. And he lost his virginity on the night of his twentieth birthday.

3. He’s a total geek, all he ever wanted to be was a scientist studying human genetics.

4. Daniel is the third child out of five, and he’s the only boy. He’s felt victimized from the moment he was born. (Strangely, I also come from a family of five, and have one brother—I never really felt any sympathy for him until I wrote Operation S…

REVIEW: Cuffed by Kitty Hunter

Image
Summary:Ronnie's Doms are ready to push her to new heights of seduction in a sexual game she can't resist. Luis and Gavin won't stop the game without her safe word, despite her tears. Will she run when it's over, or will her bond with her Doms grow deeper?
Title:  Cuffed
Series:  Hidden Pleasures
Book #: 2
Author:  Kitty Hunter
Approximate Book Length:  25 Pages
Recommended Reader Age:  18+
Sexual Content:  Explicit

Thoughts:So this is not a standalone story as it picks up where the last one left off with the same characters. It doesn’t exactly start off with an exclusive ménage, but in a budding relationship of this type, that’s not particularly unusual as things are uncertain. All the dirty talk isn’t quite my taste, but I can be pretty vanilla, so I don’t necessarily count. The only thing I will say is that the important thing to remember about BDSM is the safe word and the rules surrounding it (no doesn’t really mean no). With that in mind, this story is sexy and…

I'm sharing a little about April Angel's Stranded Temptation, including an R-RATED Exerpt . Happy reading!
*****************************

Stranded together, their passions will run wild.

Kara has a deep dislike for her boss, Max. She also wants him so badly it’s making her nuts. He’s a workaholic, a robot man. And he’s never shown the least bit of interest in her or anything else that wasn’t recorded in the corporate minutes. But when their plane crashes on the way to a meeting, leaving them stranded on a deserted island…just the two of them, all alone with all that ocean around them…Kara decides it’s time to start living. And by living, she means using Max for all the hot sex she’s been denied.

Max wants Kara—has wanted her for a long time. Unable to come out and cross the line between professional and personal, he makes her accompany him on business trips just to have her around. When they crash land and Kara shows him how much she wants him, he decides to quit being so pr…

BOOK PROMO: A Breath of Winter by Hailey Edwards

Thanks to Bewitching Book Tours for hosting this blitz. I'm sharing a little about Hailey Edwards's A Breath of Winter. Happy reading!
*****************************

There’s no easy cure for a love of epidemic proportions.

Araneae Nation, Book 4

Zuri and her mercenary brothers had a simple mission. Transport a captured harbinger to Erania and collect the bounty. But this job turns out to be anything but easy.

Their welcome to the northland is nothing short of frigid. A scuffle with border guards and her prisoner’s attempted escape leave Zuri injured—and she and her brothers stuck in quarantine. Worse, the bounty comes with silken strings attached. Strings held by a scientist with a daring, dangerous plan.

Because Zuri and her prisoner barged in before his fail-safes were in place, Henri had no choice but to lock them all down until he’s sure there’s no risk of spreading plague. He’d planned to study the harbinger, but it’s the mercenary holding the leash who intrigues him the …

REVIEW: Seven Sexy Sins by Serenity Woods

Image
***This book was originally reviewed for My Secret Romance.*** ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Summary:Faith has been commissioned to write a series of articles on spicing up your love life. She’s picked her theme, “Seven Sexy Sins”, but the problem is she’s never experienced any of them. Her brother’s best friend, Rusty, has kept his distance out of respect, but decides to jump at the chance to help Faith with her problem. Struggling with reputations, a family curse, and a long-time crush, they’ll navigate their way through her series of articles, and hope the fallout isn’t as messy as they fear when it’s all over.
Thoughts:I’ve found a new favorite! I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The characters have such depth, you feel like they could be friends of yours. The story can be so emotional, yet it’s also incredibly sexy and fun. I think it was well balanced, well written, and well paced all around. It actually reminded me a bit of the movie “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days”, only revol…

BOOK PROMO: After the Ending by Lindsey Pogue and Lindsey Fairleigh

Thanks to Bewitching Book Tours for hosting this blog tour. I'm sharing a little about After the Ending by Lindsey Pogue and Lindsey Fairleigh. Happy reading!
*****************************

The Virus spread. Billions died. The Ending began. We may have survived the apocalypse, but the Virus changed us.

When people started getting sick, “they” thought it was just the flu. My roommate, my boyfriend, my family…they’re all gone now. I got sick too. I should have died with them—with the rest of the world—but I didn’t. I thought witnessing the human population almost disappear off the face of the earth was the craziest thing I’d ever experience. I was so wrong. My name is Dani O’Connor, I’m twenty-six-years-old, and I survived The Ending.

The Virus changed everything. The world I knew is gone, and life is backwards. We’ve all had to start over. I’ve been stripped of my home, my dreams…all that is me. I’m someone else now—broken and changed. Other survivors’ memories and emotions haun…
