Synopsis

Saved

He saved her life…she saved his soul.

Garrett Hawkins is the most valuable asset to his Special Forces unit, because, frankly, the guy doesn’t care if he lives or dies anymore. Since the love of his life, Sage Weston, was kidnapped and killed with her medical unit a year ago, Garrett has turned the shell of his soul into the armor of a finely tuned fighting machine. Being the first tapped for the unit’s craziest missions is just fine by him. The less time for memories and the agony they carve into his soul, the better.

It’s a plan that works, until Garrett’s world is upended one night in the jungles of Thailand. Memories become reality when the unit is called to rescue a group of kidnapped aid workers, and they discover Sage and her teammate among the retrieved women. Now that Sage is back in his arms, Garrett doesn’t know what to do. He has changed in dramatic ways, especially in the darker tastes of his passion. If he touches Sage again, he’ll want to claim her, restrain her…dominate her.

Is Sage’s love strong enough to let Garrett back in, not only as her fiancé but her Dominant? Can she trust that visiting the new shadows of his life will lead her to ecstasy and not ruin? Or can Garrett’s discipline be exactly what her soul needs to find its way back to life—and love—again?

Lethal As Sin by Jennifer Bene ~Review~

Synopsis

Sparks and bullets fly in ‘Lethal Sin’!

The safest kind of love for Camille Devereaux has always been none at all. No attachments. No friends. No family. Nothing more than a one night stand whenever the itch got too strong to scratch by herself – and it always worked for her. She was one of the best free agents in the business. If you wanted intel on someone, she could get it. If you wanted a sticky situation resolved, she could fix it. And if you wanted someone to quietly disappear? Well, for the right price she could do that too.

It all worked perfectly until one of the biggest crime lords in the city decided he wanted her on the payroll full-time. Exclusively on his payroll. At first she had refused, but then he found a weak spot that even Camille hadn’t known about, and once she knew? There was no saying ‘no’ to Patrick Callahan.

That was how she found herself on the wrong side of the gun, in a sticky situation of her own, on her knees before the head badass from a rival criminal organization – Mateo Salvai. All he wants when he first meets Camille is to get the answers his boss wants from her, using his own devious methods, but once he meets this feisty, strong woman, all his plans go out the window. He’s fascinated by her, he craves her, and once he realizes she’s his perfect match he knows he can’t let her go.

Yet, the world they run in is dangerous and there are no easy options when they both report to powerful men bent on the other’s destruction. Will Mateo break his loyalties to protect Camille, and will Camille let go of her long-held rules to let him help her?

Jump in to the criminal underworld of these two assassins and get ready for a no holds barred, sexy, intense rush to the explosive conclusion of ‘Lethal Sin’, book one of the Dangerous Games series!

My Review

I have this thing, I do not read synopsis, most of the time. This was one of those times, so I went into this story not knowing what to expect. I had a few moments in the first few chapters where I was wondering just what I had gotten myself into but I stuck with it. I am glad I did. I enjoyed this story with all of it’s twists and turns. The characters are complex and well written. The story has some dark undertones yet had a HFN ending. There was certainly some steam and overall I enjoyed reading it

To Serve is Divine by R.E. Hargrave ~Audiobook Review~

Synopsis

Catherine O’Chancey is a reserved, demure, and graceful submissive. All traits she trained hard to enhance when she discovered the world of Dominance and submission in college. In an attempt to start fresh after the unexpected death of her last Dom, Catherine moves to Dallas, TX to escape the shroud of darkness he left behind in her life. She has tried to fight the need that resides deep within her to submit, but finally has to admit she can’t for it is not a choice, but part of who she truly is. After months of mental preparation, she ventures back into the lifestyle by attending a coveted open-night event at Dungeons and Dreams, an exclusive BDSM club.
Is it fate or coincidence that Catherine garners the attention of one of the club’s board members who happens to be on the hunt for the perfect sub – a partner who enjoys receiving pain and pleasure as much as he enjoys doling it out?
Jayden Masterson is many things: a firm Dom, a shrewd businessman, and a gentleman. What he isn’t, is someone who partakes in relationships outside of contractual ones with his multiple, uncollared, regular submissives. While he likes rough sex, he is not an animal, and can find pleasure only if it is consensual. What his harem is missing is a pain slut; could there be one in his future?
Upon meeting Catherine, Jayden feels an instantaneous spark inside him that has him wanting to know not just her body, but her mind. He wants to unravel her mysteries and discover her secrets. Through pain can they find the pleasure they seek? Can part-time pain lovers find full-time fulfillment when it’s not in their contract?
***Contains explicit sexual content (including multiple partners and gender pairings) and mature situations which could be trigger-inducing for some readers. Not meant for underage readers.***

My Review

This is not the first time I have read To Serve is Divine, it is however the first time I listened to it. For those that have not read it I will include my original review of the book. The audio version adds a whole new level to the amount of love I have for this story. The narrator is fantastic and brings so much to the story with each inflection of her voice. Jayden takes on a sexy Texas draw that tingled my toes. Catherine’s Irish lilt is delightful. Every emotion plays out through her voice. Absolutely the best way to spend your time on a long drive. Now on to my review of the story itself.

Strong characters who are well written, complex and truthful to the BDSM lifestyle.

For those looking to understand the complexities of the BDSM lifestyle, pick up your copy of this book and the remaining trilogy. Jayden is a classic example of a true Dominant who understands what makes a submissive tick and how to give them what they crave. He is sexy, Alpha, compassionate, intelligent and secure in his persona to take on the task of being Catherine’s Dominant. Catherine’s need to submit is integral to who she is. Her need for pain is the same as her need for breathing. Neither are looking for love. They come together to mutually explore and fulfill each others needs. This book is detailed and highly sexual. The scenes and behavior are true to life and a great representation of the lifestyle. It isn’t just about the kinky sex, the feelings and emotions are just as important. Ms. Hargrave serves both on silver platters with hot the steamy sex as a side dish. This is a book that will make you squirm and just maybe want to kneel at your lovers feet even if only for a special treat.

Erin (Catherine) had spent the first six months researching clubs in her spare time whenever she could work up the nerve. The more time that passed, the more Erin came to realize she just couldn’t ignore the kinky side of herself any longer. She was scared out of her mind, yet knew she needed to get back into the lifestyle- craved it even. Anxiety became her constant companion, she wasn’t sleeping, ad she couldn’t focus at work. The few ties she’d attempted to pleasure herself had been failures. Anytime she would get close, visions of him flashed through her mind halting her progress. Yet she needed to serve- to submit. She was pretty sure it was in the chemical make-up of her brain to be a submissive.

The Dominant stood and freed the velvet box which contained the length of black pearls from his pocket. Attached near the clasp was a small charm engraved with a four-leaf clover for outer appearance while the back of the charm was etched with Jayden’s initials and a triskelion- the emblem of their lifestyle. “Catherine,” he said standing before her. “will you allow me to collar you?” There was nothing ritualistic about it, just straight to the point. Jayden wanted her; wanted to have a hand in her life full-time, even if they played just on the weekends. He was offering to be there when she was happy and when she was sick. Protection within the community would be provided by him. More than anything: he was stating that he wanted her. Catherine met his gaze and smiled before she slipped from the chair to take a proper position on her knees for the occasion. “Aye, Sir. To serve you will be divine.” she answered, and Jayden could tell her heart raced within her chest- much like his own.

A Shot of Sin by Eden Summers ~Re-Release~

 
Re-Release Blitz
Title: A Shot of Sin
Series: The Vault
Author: Eden Summers
 
 
Add to Goodreads:
 

 

Throw back a shot of pure sin. 


Leo Petrova has a dirty secret that’s about to get blown wide open. The exclusive VIP area hidden beneath his night club, Shot of Sin, is short staffed a bartender. The only available replacement is Shay—his temptation, his distraction—the sole woman he refuses to escort down the secret staircase. She has no clue about the private adult club that lies beneath her feet and he’d prefer to keep it that way. The Vault of Sin is the only place he can let his sexual proclivities run wild and he’s learned the hard way that Shay is too virtuous to be comfortable in the erotic environment.

Shay Porter is curious as to why her boss, the king of mixed messages, seems almost desperate to keep her from discovering what’s on the other side of the guarded door at the back of the building. But she’s never backed down from a challenge before. Sliding into Leo’s arms and this new world of carnal exploration is addictive yet frightening. She could lose her job, her self-respect, and her heart.

Exposing a vanilla woman to a sorbet lifestyle isn’t something Leo’s business partners approve of. Secrets are at stake. Friendships, too. And through it all, neither one of them can ignore the wicked taste of sin threatening to tear it all apart.

Warning: This sex club does not carry the government’s stamp of approval. Contains devilish debauchery, delightful deviance, and dancing on the edge of the darkest of sexual desires. 
 

 

***Please note: This book was previously released by Samhain Publishing. This new edition contains a few slight tweaks as well as a new setting for the series.

With This Collar (Mastered #1) by Sierra Cartwright~Review~

Synopsis

Julia Lyle will have nothing to do with domineering men, no matter how tall, dark, and sexy. But Dom Marcus Cavendish will be satisfied with nothing less than collaring the fiercely independent Julia.

Nothing could have shocked her more…

Julia Lyle is invited to her best friend’s wedding and is stunned when Lana kneels to accept her husband’s collar. When Julia starts to object, firm, relentless hands land on her shoulders. The man behind her threatens to turn her over his knee if she interrupts. She’s outraged, but there’s no doubt he’s serious.

After the ceremony, he offers her a glimpse into her friend’s lifestyle, if she’s brave enough to accept.

Master Marcus Cavendish is everything she doesn’t want in a man—dominant, self-assured and arrogant. So why can’t she resist him?

Telling herself that learning about the lifestyle will make her a better friend, Julia agrees to submit to Master Marcus, but only for the evening. Firm and unrelenting in his handling of her, he introduces her to his tawse and the pleasure/pain of a spanking delivered by a competent Dom. The experience unnerves her, making her question everything she thought she knew about relationships, and his forced orgasms leave her shattered.

No doubt the scene seduced her, and that makes her doubly determined to avoid him. She has fought hard for her freedom and vowed only to date nice men, and Master Marcus is anything but safe.

Marcus is undeterred. Julia is a natural sub. The way she responded to his touch, his voice, his punishment proved it. Now he has to convince her to yield to him, submitting to his tawse as she kneels to accept his collar.

My Review

Exceptionally well written. Multifaceted characters who continue to learn and grow. Steamy hot with some great emotional tugs. A great read for those looking into the BDSM world. This book handles the subject very well and in a realistic tone. The kink is on the mild side and a great place to start. I will be adding the rest of this series to my TBR.

One Wrong Glance by Deanndra Hall ~Review~

Synopsis

Parents are supposed to love their kids, not kill them, Right?

At least that’s what Malcolm Collins thought, but when a string of racially-motivated hate crimes bears his father’s signature quotes from over the years, what is he supposed to think? One clue after another pile up to threaten him and his Citadel bodyguard, Wendy Ryan, even as they struggle to forge a love relationship. Everything gets derailed over one crazy, kinky night, and they both think things couldn’t get worse. Unfortunately, that’s before one simple glance between them in the presence of his parents ignites a firestorm. It won’t be easy to snuff out, and it may even cost someone their life.

Join Wendy, Malcolm, and the entire group of Walters friends and family in a steamy, kinky end to the Citadel series. One Wrong Glance is a heartbreaking tale that shows you how powerful simple words can be—power that’s not always for the good.


My Review


You know you have read a fantastic book when you just HAVE to drop a line to the author’s page and let them know you are bawling. This book is most assuredly an ugly cry. It also has some very heartwarming and sweet moments. The characters are compelling and well written. I did not want to put it down.

Malcolm and Wendy have so many hurtles to get over and it seems that just as the clear one another pops up to try and stop them in their tracks. The steam factor is pretty high and there is definitely some kink involved. Underneath all that is just two people, trying to get through life, find and keep love without destroying themselves in the process. The emotional roller coaster they are riding has some pretty steep falls and twists. Not only are they fighting societal norms but familial stress and internal battles. Watching them triumph over all of that is well worth the box of tissue I needed to get through.

Silken Edge by Laci Paige~Review~

Synopsis

After her longtime boyfriend dumps her, Kristy craves a change in her life. Her best friend, Sherry, is into the BDSM scene, and on a whim and a bet, Kristy finds herself in the playroom at an exclusive club. A disguised Dom named Master Jay uses sensation play and a piece of silk to help her discover the world of kink. She finds it enjoyable and addictive, but what she doesn’t know is that Master Jay is really Jake, a much younger man to whom she’s strongly attracted.

For the past couple of years, Jake quietly watched Kristy in his gym. He doesn’t care that she’s older than him; he wants her. When the virgin BDSM sub he’s hired to train ends up being Kristy, Jake almost falls apart. During the scene they play at the club, he fantasizes about getting her into restraints in his own playroom. But Kristy is shocked when she learns that the two men she desires are one and the same. Can Kristy who’s led a vanilla sex life, and Jake, who knows nothing but kink, find a future together?

My Review

I thoroughly enjoyed reading The Silken Edge. It was sweet and sexy. Jake and Kristy both grow throughout the book. That was a great part of reading their story. They were open to new things, admitted that life isn’t always black and white were definitely open to the adventure. There is some steam and there certainly is kink involved. This is a great story for people who want more of the relationship with a little bit of the steam. A fantastic story to clear my head , relax and enjoy that put me back in touch with my kindle and wanting to read again.

A note from the author:
BDSM is variable; it’s not black and white, it’s not always deep and dark. It’s whatever the participants want it to be, it’s individual, and there is no “right” way to do it – as long as it’s SSC (safe/sane/consensual). On that note, my Silken series is meant for those interested more in the people and the relationships than the kink. The novels are light on the kink & BDSM and were meant to be that way for a specific group of readers.
I’ve done my research and have been to clubs, private play parties, demonstrations, forums, workshops, conventions, and conferences on the subject of kink/BDSM.
Don’t let what you think you know about the lifestyle, or what you’ve read in novels, affect your thoughts on the subject. Be open-minded.
