Knotted (Trails of Sin, #1) by Pam Godwin
abuse , contemporary , dark , erotica , romance , suspense / 06/10/2018

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…

The Harbinger: A Reverse Harem Fantasy by Candace Wondrak

Interesting new series from Ms. Wondrak. She creates a whole new world called The Second where you can meet other races (the Elven, the Malus, the Ulen and the Dracon) and where different rules apply. I can see some similarities with common mythology but nevertheless they are different species with supernatural powers and most of them are way too beautiful to be trusted. At least that is what Faith claims. Faith is a young student at the Academy on the Earth, where she is learning to become a hunter for people making illegal portals to the other Wolds or smuggling something through it. She is a young rebel, sometimes a bit annoying and making some immature decisions. Her attitude may come out a bit arrogant, but she is just a snarky teenager and that shows in her behaviour with braking the rules all the time. I like how she is acting her age and is not all mature and perfect and making adult decisions which make her more realistic. I liked Her interaction with Light and others which was funny and sarcastic. Moving forward with the story, while going into the Second she is dragged into the prophecy of the…

Queen Takes Rook (Their Vampire Queen #4) by Joely Sue Burkhart

I believe this became one of my favorite series. Erotic untraditional vampires combined with a female heroine in a great suspense is just amazing. The complexity of the plot is so well written that you can easily imagine every scene in details. After her deal and help with Queen Zaniyah, Isadore is ready for her well-deserved rest but politics and NY queen have something else in mind. She is invited to New York, where she will finally face and deal with the NY Queen. All of this while dealing with betrayal from someone from Zaniyah’s nest and Ra’s intrusion. While in NY the story is quickly developing and turning, but the reader doesn’t feel like it’s rushing so it’s nicely executed. Every Blood has well developed character with so much depth you feel for them every time they hurt and love. It is wonderful how she knows how to use their advantages and takes time for every single one of them. She is still getting to know the new twins and there is a hint of doubt that quickly dissolves when they open to her and help her in critical situation. She is amazing in her unapologetic love for life…

Beneath the Scars (Masters of the Shadowlands #13) by Cherise Sinclair
BDSM , erotica , romance / 24/06/2018

Ms. Sinclair is my go-to author when I need some sweet romance, with perfect Doms and kinky sex. Josie is a writer, bartender and a single mother trying to raise a teenage son as best as she can. She is sweet, determined and despite being a writer she doesn’t believe in romance due to her past experience. When she loses her job as a bartender she ends up serving drinks in Shadowland where her curiosity for BDSM (and her neighbor) grows potentially, despite their cold start. Holt is her neighbor and such an amazing man, patient, sweet, loyal and alpha despite his easy-going nature. Nevertheless, he is a Dom and a good one. She falls for Josie and is willing to wait and help her to see what they have is worth saving. I liked their story, it is such a sweet and perfect romance with light BDSM. He listens to her, pushes her and knows how to make them both craving for more. I love HEA at every aspect. Interaction with the characters from previous books was a great bonus. I would recommend this book to readers who like kinky romance with almost perfect characters and HEA.

Wicked Nights (Angels of the Dark #1) by Gena Showalter

First let me say I am a fan of Gena and her Lords of the Underworld so I had great expectation about this book. I was a bit disappointed. Not that it was bad but this was more of an action movie story than paranormal romance. The constant fight between good and evil and never-ending inner battles. Zacharel is on his way to lose his wings if he doesn’t change his path. He is ruthless and strong and somehow selfish in his way to destruction. But when he meets Annabelle he doesn’t understand the appeal at first. But the more time he spend with her, the more he understand why are humans important and precious. Annabelle is a strong girl who is falsely accused of killing her parents and put in the mental institution, because no one believes her there are monsters (demons) walking among people. She suffered so much but came out stronger. I like my heroines strong and that they are not always damsel in distress  in need of a great hero. So I liked that about her, that she took care of herself despite the circumstances. When Zacharel shows herself to her, some things finally make sense to…

BDSM , contemporary , erotica , romance / 05/05/2018

Be prepared for one sexy and entertaining ride. When you get the chance to fulfill all your darkest desires, what would you do? Cassie is one strong, independent and tough lawyer. She is smart, intelligent, bratty and focused on her work she is good at. But deep down she is missing some crucial part, she is craving a dominant man who is strong enough to stand up to her, to fight her back and force her to submit. She is ashamed of her darkest fantasies of consensual non-con, but she finds her match in Patrick. Patrick is sexy playboy who has only one rule. Never sleeps with the same woman twice and tell them ahead what to expect. His goal is to fulfill their fantasies and leave before morning. But he is transfixed with Cassie’s attitude and her snickering comment about his lifestyle. He is interested in her but she doesn’t seem to fall on his charm. But one night the spark between them catches fire and their one-night stand is one of the best for both of them. The game is changed. Their agreement for just sex and fulfilling Cassie’s darkest desires is for both of their safety. The chemistry…

The Subs Club (The Subs Club #1) by J.A. Rock
BDSM , erotica , m-m , romance / 19/04/2018

What happens when your friend dies enjoying BDSM games? Do you hate the games, the people or yourself for not helping? David has lost a good friend during some breath play. It was an accident but he refuses to see it that way. He starts the blog where he wanted for subs to talk about their bad experience but somehow they started rating Doms and things went down the road. He is bratty and annoying and not dealing well with the loss of his friend. He is trying to get a scene with a Dom (Disciplinarian) so he can review him but suddenly he is craving him not just for a review. They share similar kink and complete each other in ways none of them expected. But when the word about the rating goes out in the community and Disciplinarian found out, their just starting relationship is in question. I liked the Disciplinarian. He is old fashioned, traditional and loves to discipline naughty boys. So David is perfect for him with his bratty attitude and need for a firm yet loving hand.  Their scenes are delicious and the domestic discipline fits right in. I also understand David’s need for safety and to protect other subs, that’s…

Ruthless (Playboys in Love #2) by Gina L. Maxwell
contemporary , erotica , menage , romance / 17/04/2018

Steamy, sweet and sexy romance with a playboy full of contradictions. Roman is ruthless lawyer and a stripper playboy who enjoys his kinky sex and sharing woman. Addison is a starting lawyer and a friend of Romans friend what makes her off limits. They are both determined to get their own way what gets things interesting quickly. One night on her friend’s party they hook up – in the alley with another couple watching… It is hot, erotic, hard and amazing. They both lie to themselves that this was it until she comes to work for his law firm and stops fighting their mutual attraction and chemistry. They “relationship” is intense and full of sex. But things don’t go smoothly until the end when they find happiness and soul mates in each other. I loved how we have two strong characters that just click together. Their attraction is visible to everybody. There were some clichés and predictable moments but it was entertaining nevertheless. I liked how everyone (in the series) has their particular kink and are not ashamed of it. The second book follows similar pattern as the first but with different characters.

Wicked Masquerade (Forbidden Secrets #1)

This was a new author for me and I was pleasantly surprised. It is a rare treat to find an author who is somehow realistic about the lifestyles and community and also known how to create likable characters, especially Domme. I was sucked into the Masquerade fantasy and I liked it a lot. Ursa is curious about the lifestyle and is invited by her friend to the kinky Masquerade where she can enjoy safe sex with a person she chooses. She doesn’t see herself suitable and is a bit self-conscious at first, her inner battle is ongoing but in the end curiosity and the need to experience kink wins. She finds herself observing interaction and scenes and is getting more and more intrigued by it. When she almost bails, her path is crossed by a wonderful black man with wings – she calls him Cupid, while others calls him Archer. He wants to serve her and it is wonderful to observe how she grows into her Domme role almost instantly. Their building arousal leads to hot kinky scenes and pony play which is another treat. I liked the fantasy, sex, characters and their slowly building romance. Overall it was kinky…

Nix (Rolling Thunder Motorcycle Club, #8) by Candace Blevins

What happens when two natural enemies met? When predator decides he likes his pray for different reasons than food? This is a lovely romance with sweet but persistent wolf shifter who is protective and dominant. He is new to MC and is still learning his way around but was entranced from the beginning with Tippy who is a deer shifter but also an Olympic shooter. Nix was fascinated with her achievement and his love for shooting ( he is snipper) only wants to know her more. I like the dynamics between their human and animal nature and instincts. It was shorter than other MC books but it was sweet romantically erotical book with no suspense.
