REVIEW: Hear Me by Skye Warren

Image
***This book was originally reviewed for My Secret Romance.*** ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Summary:She wakes up in a spare room, where the only thing she remembers is her slave training. The master who finds her claims he doesn't want her. He just can't seem to resist her. The secrets of his past haunt the cabin, fraying the tightening bond between Master and slave--though her own memories may finally unravel it. Hear Me is a dark erotic book that explores dubious consent, captivity, and power play. Not intended for those uncomfortable with the subject matter or those under 18 years of age.
Thoughts:I struggle to decide where to start! I’m very fenced about this story, because I like BDSM, but until this story, I didn’t realize that it was only to a point. The term “dark erotica” is no joke. It’s a very dark story involving hard core BDSM. Barring her captivity, there are several instances of questionable consent, yet they don’t cross the line and are surprisingly erotic.�…

REVIEW: Summer's Journey - Losing Control by Summer Daniels

Image
***This book was originally reviewed for My Secret Romance.*** ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Summary:Come join me on my journey and find out why! Fortyish, newly divorced, searching and longing for something different. Something fulfilling and exciting, somewhere far outside my ordinary comfort zone. Come with me on my journey of discovery. Explore with me. Touch, taste and feel with me. Lots more to come following my introduction to you in this first volume of a multi-part True Romance / Erotica series.
Thoughts:It didn’t occur to me until a few pages in that this is essentially an autobiography. We experience life through Summer’s eyes as she’s reaching out to rediscover herself after a long stagnant marriage. From trying to get back into the dating world to finding a surprising candidate, it’s an exciting, heartfelt, and very real trip through an honest woman’s mind. It’s very short as it’s only the beginning, so I won’t say anything more than I really can’t wait to see just wh…

REVIEW: Demon's Caress by Crystal Jordan

Image
***This book was originally reviewed for My Secret Romance.*** ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Summary:Maron is a hunter – a demon sent to Earth to capture evil souls and send them into the pits of Hell. She’d be stronger if she bonded with a partner, and even strongest if she bonded with two, but she just can’t face that possibility after her devastating past. She’s been assigned two new hunting partners, and she remembers Raum and Kobal vividly having spent a night with them before. She knows her boss, and her partners are hoping she’ll form the Triad bond with them, but is she even capable of it or will she risk their very lives by shutting them out?
Thoughts:The story definitely grabs your attention from the very beginning as we catch up with Maron as she’s on the hunt. Her former partner was reassigned, because she’d entered into a Triad bond, so now she’s been saddled with two new partners and she struggles to put some distance between herself and them so she’s not tempted to en…

REVIEW: Boots and Leather by Myla Jackson

Image
***This book was originally reviewed for My Secret Romance.*** ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Summary:Libby’s been in Temptation, Texas for eight months, and in that time she’s done her best to keep her distance from the Gray Wolf twins, knowing she’ll need to get back on the run soon and can’t have any attachments. They’ve been trying to get her attention, but it’s an invitation to go riding at their ranch that finally grabs it. She longs for a life she can’t have, and it makes her stay just one day too long. Nothing will be the same now when her past finally catches up to her. Will the twins be able to convince her they’re worth sticking around for?
Thoughts:Pretty early in the book, you can tell there was a story before this one, but you don’t really feel like you’re missing anything, though what you do find out makes you want to go back and read it anyway.

There’s intrigue and an instant connection with Libby right from the beginning, and you also kind of fall for the brothers rig…

Blood, Sweat and the Big O
I’ve always wanted to be an author. I’ve toyed with writing for quite some time but never in my life did I imagine I would get this kind of opportunity.

When I was first asked to contribute to “The Sin Circus” – I asked the author who set it all up, Rachel, if she was joking. My first thought was why me, I’m a nobody. Then when it became more real, my musings ran more along the line of - what if I wasn’t good enough. How do you know if you’re good enough?

I pushed everything I was feeling away and just wrote my piece and hoped for the best. I then sent it off, while closing my eyes, and waited.

When I received it back with all the edits, my heart literally sank to the floor in a crushed and broken heap. I’m not gonna lie, there were tears, and FYI – I’m not a pret…

REVIEW: Bound by Kitty Hunter

Summary:Waking up tied spread-eagle to a bed wasn't in her game plan...

Alone and afraid, Ronnie finds that her Doms have bound her for their pleasure without her consent. A very distressed Gavin joins her, and she finds that the only consolation she can offer is to accept anything...everything...he has to give.

When Luis glimpses the lovers together, tangled in the sheets alone, he fears he is losing his place in the relationship. Learning that Gavin lost control and abused Ronnie infuriates him; the fact that Ronnie did not safe word when she should have almost pushes him over the edge.

The trio have to come to a new agreement about the power dynamics in their relationship, and the growing love they share.

REVIEW: Ménage After Midnight by Madelynne Ellis

Image
***This book was originally reviewed for My Secret Romance.*** ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Summary:Paris Ashcroft supports himself and his sister by selling his body discreetly to women with unsatisfying husbands. Sophia Lovich, however, is more than just a means for a living. He’ll surrender to passion with her because she holds his heart, not for any kind of price. He never suspects her husband to join them.
Thoughts:Being set in Georgian England, it’s a lot more acceptable that a woman has curves. Even if it is historical, it was still nice to see that. Paris totally loves Sophia and even imagines what she’ll look like without all the layers and certainly appreciates her “round rump”.

At first, Sophia kind of lies to him a bit, by omitting the little fact that her husband would be joining them. Once that’s past though, it’s actually a very sexy and very sweet story. I love the honesty with which Alexander expresses himself.

The love scenes are vivid and you get a variety …
