Review: Milk & Cookies & Handcuffs
Milk & Cookies & Handcuffs by Erzabet Bishop
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
On the fifth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me – five golden rings! Were these rings slave collars for hot kinky sex? Each of these short stories features smexy goodness with some cheerful holiday nookie.
In HOLIDAYS IN HELL, the reader witnesses a demon willing to sacrifice his life to save a sweet submissive soul. Ms. Bishop pens a smoking hot piece with an alpha male sex demon and a sweet ingénue. The incorporation of Christmas ribbons and ornaments into bondage will make a reader take a closer look at Christmas decorations. Perhaps even inspire the reader for their own kinky wrapping.
In GIFT OF THE FAMILIAR, Ms. Whitehall poignantly reminds readers of those who are less fortunate. This m/m piece whirls in the paranormal through fantasy and sexual servitude. The reader learns about this magical world through the eyes of an abused familiar. Except this year, the familiar is owned by a good master and learns of the traditions and gifts of his kind. Ms. Whitehall creates an enchanting world with imaginative relationships as well as social structures. The world building in this story will spellbind the reader.
In PUSHING THE LINE, Ms. Blackthorne does an excellent job of showcasing "meeting the family" for a lesbian couple. Ebet's family is still in denial about her love for another woman. This humourous and at times too comical family affair lightens up the book. This is an endearing story about acceptance and love. Even when all the warts of a family are exposed, the love between Ebet and Meg stays strong. The witty dialog plus the f/f hotness is definitely a winner.
In GIFT OF SELF, Ms. Tudor dances on the very fine line of a man who cross-dresses and identifies as a woman. This transgender story is moving and showcases a lifestyle many shy away from or frown upon. Ms. Tudor does this alternative lifestyle justice with her tender moments. She deftly shows the confusion and fears of both the Mistress and submissive male. Yet again, the message in this story is of acceptance and love without judgment. One word – beautiful.
THE SUB'S GIFT is the perfect ending to this hot kinky anthology. Dynamic duo Armstrong and Moore kick it up a notch with a foursome. This is a switch's fantasy come true! There is a Master and Mistress who own a submissive male, Kyle. For Christmas, his present is a submissive female to be adopted as a family "pet". The kinks in this one are all blazing hot. It's not all fun and games. The authors tackle the fears of being replaced by a new submissive. This is a very plausible scenario which would make a submissive nervous. Kyle's concern is respectfully examined and then lovingly resolved. There is plenty of love to go around in this excellent kinky tale.
This holiday anthology is recommended to kinky romance lovers who love as thou wilt.
