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…

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 🙂

Alien Overnight by Robin L. Rotham
aliens , contemporary , erotica , fiction , menage , romance / January 20, 2019

Who doesn’t like kinky aliens?! Ahh, everybody should 🙂 A new author for me as I was looking something kinky and sci-fi, this one popped out. It was entertaining, funny with a bit of romance and some hot sex. We are thrown right into explanation of alien anatomy and their need for women to reproduce. Commander Kellen is on Earth to gather them when he notice one exceptional woman – Dr. Monica. He quickly claims her as his mate and she is swiftly acquaintance with their anatomy first hand. She is shocked with revelation of her genetics and past but in the end everything fits to its place. It was a quick read and there were moments I really wanted to shake the main characters, so much could be avoided if they only talked and listened and not just assume. I was struggling a bit with their technology and their anatomy regardless of description. There were moments that tried to be emotional but something was lacking. Overall it was an ok romance and fun read for me.

Sweet Jayne by K. Webster
abuse , contemporary , dark , erotica , non-con , romance , suspense / December 30, 2018

Wow, this was one hell of a dark, twisted and intense story. It kept me on edge till the end. Nadia is a 17 old girl. Her mother married a millionaire Donovan Jayne. He is handsome, overprotective and there is obvious chemistry between them, but still he is her stepdad and off limits. One day her new friend Kasey is kidnapped and even though she witnessed the kidnapping she doesn’t remember much. Years later, Kasey still wasn’t found and Nadia is engaged to her stepdad (ex) best friend and police Chief Logan. She has her own agenda while still searching for Kasey,but there are others too who won’t let the past in the past. I loved the plot, the suspense and all the graphic details despite the dark and twisted scenes. There is a lot of sex, non-con acts and some weird romance. Everything slams together in the end and we do have some sort of HEA. The characters were real and their charisma was strong. I just couldn’t get over Logan, he was such a prick from the beginning and I still don’t understand how he managed to manipulate everything. Further into the book I hated his guts and…

Unexpected Gifts: Pleasure Times Four by Candace Blevins
BDSM , erotica , fantasy , m-m , menage , paranormal , romance , shapeshifters , vampire / November 25, 2018

What a lovely treat for upcoming holidays. This is a story about love and second chances and fits perfectly in this time of year. I was wondering how will 4 so different people with different past work out together and Ms Blevins knows how to interwine them marvelously. Cole – a bear shifter and Jayce – a powerful vampire complete each other in their partnership. They are in love and happy together. They are sort of equal partners and their sex is smoking hot. It seems they don’t need nobody else, until Polly comes around. She is strong, independent vampire who has some bad reputation due to her past. As she was asleep for 150 years, she is now forced to learn all the history, social etiquette and technology in modern time. Let’s not forget Sergei – a werewolf and their house manager, wanting to be more. He was such a sweet albeit strong pet and so desperately in need of unconditional love and trust. I admired Jayce, he was the stone in their relationship. Smart, wise, patient and full of great ideas… I was fond of hard topics they discussed and how they confronted past vs. Present. The history,…

Picture Perfect Cowboy (The Original Sinners #10) by Tiffany Reisz
BDSM , contemporary , erotica , funny , romance / October 26, 2018

Jason Waters is a sweet and good mannered cowboy living on his ranch in Kentucky. He is a retired bull rider so his yummy physique speaks for itself. Let’s not forget he is good looking too and devoted to his family. For a favor to his friend he is going to do some naked photographing for charity calendar. Hell it’s for a good cause and he promised he will do it even if his parents won’t approve (put it mildly). This is where Simone comes into play. Everybody who read Original sinners know she is a go-to whipping girl for Soren and a good photographer. I love how she is comfortable and open about her kink and sexuality and doesn’t doubt herself. Their firs interaction is a bit awkward but they are both curious and interested in each other. Eventually they start playing with each other but it is not a smooth ride.   I love their interaction and how she tutored him to reach both satisfaction. He is very good manner and has issues hitting woman at first. But when he realizes her pleasure in all of this, he is all in. The plot is nice and sweet with…

Knotted (Trails of Sin, #1) by Pam Godwin
abuse , contemporary , dark , erotica , romance , suspense / October 6, 2018

Wow this was one intensely dark read. The emotional suspense, intrigue, love, passion, commitment, kink and more… 4 friends, young and innocent got sucked into a scheme of grownups. Their youth taken away too soon, too swift and it changed everything. One couple, two brothers all very protective of the only girl in their little circle. Conor and Jake are soulmates and decided to make love for the first time on her 16th birthday outside in the open. They are ranchers after all. While preparing to make it special and a bit kinky, they got ambushed. So 3 boys are forced to watch their friend being raped over and over again. Her innocence brutally taken, and the traumatic incident changed them all. 6 years later little bits and pieces are clearing up about the past. Nothing is as it seemed at first. The dark schemes revealing a lot more everybody expected. All The characters are strong. Dominating cowboys protective and possessive of their own. They show a wide range of emotions and sometimes act in unpredictable ways, but they move the plot forward with their action. I love how they are dark and hurt but they still know how to…

Defining Human (Only Human #4) by Candace Blevins

Oh wow, what did I just read? This was one intense roller coaster of paranormal politics, fight, bad decisions, good intentions, heartbreak, sex and more. So much happened in this book it is hard to put in a review but still so many questions are still not answered. Ms. Blevins shakes the whole paranormal world with so many twists and turned everything upside-down. Who is good and who is bad, who are allies, who would you chose to save? So many moral questions and not one straight answer. Will good ever defeat the bad? I guess the balance is important but what happens when the scale goes to the wrong side? Everybody claims they have good reasoning behind their decision but decisions are still hard to understand. I loved the plot and suspense and even moments that made me love and hate and curse everybody and every decision. I still have a hard time processing Abbott decision. I really hoped they will get back together. He is ultimate authority, strong, sexy and uncompromising but caring and a strict Dom with kink I love. That is why I was shocked to find out he was behind Kirsten kidnaping. Kirsten is trying…
