Girl Long Gone by Danielle M. Haas
contemporary , crime , dark , romance , suspense / May 28, 2020

Girl Long Gone by Danielle M. Haas is a fast-paced suspense novel with a hint of romance. The main story is about detective Connor, whose sister is missing. He dedicates everything to finding her and everything points to a rich snob Gabriel. The problem is, nobody believes him, so his search is mainly on his own. The search and the game of cat and mice is hastily put into the whole plot. There is a hint of mind games that I like in those kinds of stories. A few little things in the plot are a bit dubious but if you accept them, the story is ok. Everything is developing rapidly, even romance and the characters do not have time to flourish into their full potential. That is why I missed getting to know them more. We get some of their past and facts, but nothing more. I liked the premise and the story, but it could have a bit more suspense and complication for my taste. I had a feeling everything went predictably smoothly. Overall, this is an ok read and it was absorbing enough to keep reading to the end. I would recommend it to readers who like a…

The Priest (The Original Sinners #9) by Tiffany Reisz
BDSM , crime , erotica , mystery , romance / March 31, 2020

5 amazing stars, The Sinners are back with a brand new amazing story New city and new chapters of life are bringing something different…it seems everybody is changed, more mature but there are some things inside of all of them, they can’t run away from. Søren was suspended from the Jesuits and he is dealing with it in his own way. Kingsley is expecting his third child and is nervous and panicked as hell. Nora is almost as usual self – getting involved in things that mean trouble. The priest committed suicide, but how is he connected to Nora? She needs to know! When I first heard the title of this book, I thought it will be about Søren and his life after Jesuits, but nooo,  this one is about some other priest. There are many correlations through the story, that you can connect to their life, if you know their past and I found that very intriguing.  I loved every minute of it, and that the story is placed in New Orleans, with magic and voodoo and witches and….be still my heart, it is perfect. An average reader might read it as classic mystery, but if you read closely…

Dementor (Rolling Thunder MC Birmingham #1) by Candace Blevins
abuse , BDSM , erotica , paranormal , romance , shapeshifters / March 22, 2020

The world after epic battle is unsure and we are thrown into a new chapter of MC – Birmingham. Ms. Candace kicks ass with this new erotic romance. It is amazing and be ready for a hefty revelation. It is sweet with great and strong characters. For me, this is also a journey about exploring and accepting your past. Coming to terms with wants and needs but being strong enough to explore more. Finally, it is also about the importance of community, belonging and family. Dementor is a delicious sadist with a strong hand, but he is still very protective and even sweet. He is aware of his own limitations and is very supportive and helpful of Ember and her baggage. The romance between Ember and him is delicious and there many layers just waiting to be revealed. I loved their interaction and their kink was delightfully intense and hot. Ms. Candace is skilled in this but here was even more hotness than usual. Damn, but I had to reread some passages… As for Ember, she is a survivor and I admired her. Her emotional baggage is more than any person could handle. Nevertheless, she became better and more mature…

The Living Canvas (Master of Trickery Duet #2) by Pepper Winters
abuse , contemporary , crime , dark , erotica , mindfuck , romance / November 26, 2019

First, you have to read the previous book to understand all. This one starts at the exact moment the previous ended. I was blown apart with so many emotions running through me while reading this, it was hard to process them all. I want to give feedback spoiler-free so let me just say, there are raw emotions, guilt, terrible pain, unfairness and so much cruelty I wanted to shake the responsible for ruining innocent lives. But most of all, there is pure love that finds its way in the midst of all horrible things happening. There are so many secrets and I can’t help wondering what outcome would there be if people were honest, forthcoming and brave from the beginning. The assumptions and bad decisions in the name of protecting each other are also making things worse. Furthermore, I understood her reasoning but her bipolar behavior and indecision were making me crazy. Don’t get me wrong, I loved the book despite my love-hate-love relationship, it’s just that I was so consumed by the book it was like living it through the characters. In the end, they finally get their HEA, despite or because of all the obstacles.

Cold Queen (Sinister Fairy Tales) by K. Webster
fantasy , magic , paranormal , romance / November 14, 2019

Delicious 4 stars Something different from K.Webster. She is my go-to author for something darkish and kinky. This one is paranormal on top of that all. Be still my heart. I was consumed from the beginning. A young queen, who used to wield so much power and magic, is dying, but she doesn’t know why. A handsome king, with her opposite power, is coming to conquer. He is a Jang to her jing, and he won’t stop at anything. I was glued to it and read it in one sitting. I love the world she creates, which is full of paranormal and magic, the main characters are funny, full of life, determined and devoted to their goal. Their connections as a bit instant, but it was still believable. My only complaint is it was too short. I knew from the start who the traitor is, so there was no big surprise. This is a kinky paranormal romance for a reader who loves alpha, kinky males, strong females, and HEA.

The Gift: Pleasure Times Four by Candace Blevins
BDSM , erotica , fantasy , magic , menage , romance , shapeshifters , vampire , werewolves / November 7, 2019

Ms. Candace surprised us again with a brilliant story. The title is very fitting on many sides, not just the obvious one. We get to know much more about vampire politics and how things are managed in the back. We knew a lot from previous books but this one is up-close with more details, interaction, dynamics and power exchange. The plot is pretty direct with an ex-slave given to a vampire pair and due to the circumstances, another ex-slave Arabella joins them. It was amazing to see so many layers of Ajax, revealing them one by one was fascinating. I’m not sure I liked more his serving side or dominating one. His growth and development were fascinating and Ms. Blevins does a wonderful job revealing his emotions, psyche, and struggles through becoming his own person again and finding his place. His past is tragic and I was amazed by how he managed to come out being the whole person. When he connects with Arabella it is clear that the union between 4 of them is complete. The battle that is ongoing at the time is epic and for those who want to know more, it is mandatory to read Unhuman…

Winter Tales (The Original Sinners) by Tiffany Reisz
BDSM , erotica , menage , romance / October 2, 2019

If I could step into one book, let it be one of Tiffany Reisz. I can’t emphasize how much I love her books, her characters, writing, dialogues, humor… everything. The only downside is, there are not enough of them 🙂 They make me giggle, laugh, gasp, cry, horny and more… Winter Tales is a series of Original Sinners novellas, all happening in winter – which is quite fitting for Soren. There is one brand new novella, starring Nora, Zach and the first glimpse of Nico. This was one magnificent treat. There are rare moments for Nora to let herself be vulnerable and unsure, but those are precious and I cherish them. Zach and Nora have their last wild moments together and they are hot and emotional. The whole package is closed with Nora holding Fionn. It is amazing how easily I can connect with the characters, their persona, and experience. The other novellas are also perfect for rereading, starring Soren through different stages. His complete openness is scarce and I appreciated every moment of it. His honesty, devotion, pain, loneliness, fear, love, longing…everything is out in those selected novellas. He is a sadist and sometimes a mystery despite knowing his…

Unhuman Acts (Only Human #7) by Candace Blevins

Can I read this book again for the first time? It was EPIC. I think I cried, Laugh and experienced so many emotions like I was right there with them. Ms. Blevins leads us to the final battle between good and evil. It is overwhelming. So much is happening and everybody is included. It was great to see all the characters from previous books. It makes me want to read all of the books again. It is not all about fighting, there is a great part about love, sacrifices, joy, family, loyalty, and trust. We finally got to see more of Mordecai and Nathan. Their insight and POV was highly anticipated and I loved their input. It is amazing to follow favorite characters through their story, to watch them grow, change and mature and finally find their peace. I was pleasantly surprised with the sex scene and was so glad there was still time for that. It was wonderful and hot but also seemed more mature and connected. The spiritual aspect is very well explained and written as usual. The whole book is emotional and intense. There were great losses, but it wouldn’t be realistic if there was none. It was…

Booty Hunter (Harem Station #1) by J.A. Huss, K.C. Cross
fiction , romance , sci-fi / August 24, 2019

Hell yeah, I want to join them on their station. Where can I sign in? This was refreshing and unique erotic sci-fi romance. It is an entertaining story, full of mystery, brotherhood, sexy surprises, unexpected emotions, drama and more. The author creates an amazing new world for sci-fi lovers. New races, cyborgs, ships, AI, humanoids, glowing princess and more are what awaits you here. Serpint is a Bounty Hunter who travels around the space to collect/steal the princes. When he returns with Princess Lyra, thinking she is just another dull slave, he is in for a glowing surprise. Their relationship is quickly developing, and their sex seems to annihilate the Universe.  But soon secrets are revealed, and nothing is like it used to be. The main characters are fun, despite being different. I liked how their personality is shown through the conversation and their decisions and they are not perfect.  Lyra is not some week female; she is strong and smart and determined. I loved every one of them, despite others being in the background, there is potential for their own stories and books. They are brothers but every one of them has their own secrets. I liked how there…

Her Web Master by Normandie Alleman
BDSM , contemporary , erotica , romance / August 13, 2019

This one was a sexy hot introduction to BDSM fantasy. Sophie is on the line of divorce and she became curious about the lifestyle, so she gets herself an online Dom. Their dynamic was HOT, and his instructions were inventive despite all of it being a bit clinical and like from the textbook. He didn’t lack imagination so the scenes were intense. I did n0t like his attitude sometimes, there is dirty talk and incorporated humiliation and there is being a jerk. He crossed that line at times. I also missed aftercare with their scenes and that was clearly bothering Sophie too. I liked their scenes but they were lacking chemistry between them. The characters were somehow just following their scenery, so I couldn’t connect with them. Maybe because of the online thing but I think they could be more involved despite that obstacle. The ending was abrupt and we still don’t know what happened with the divorce. I also missed some suspense. Despite all, it was one hell of a sexy read and I would recommend it to people who are silently lurking in kinky waters 🙂
