Review: The Billionaire Beast

The Billionaire Beast by Jackie Ashenden
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Beast does describe Nero quite well. Nero is a kinky type of Howard Hughes, except the reason for Nero's isolation is horrific. I fell for Nero as his traumatic past is revealed. He is definitely a boy with mommy issues and seriously needs some social skill courses. Still, leniency for his behaviour is understandable as each abusive incident in his past comes to light.

From a character building perspective, I really liked this story. Nero is this anti-hero who is ruthless and does whatever he wants because he can. He is a prickly jerk because he has not come out of his victim mentality. He does things which demonstrates he still isn't over the lack of control he had as a child. In addition, he has not reconciled what his mother did to him. He thinks he is a survivor but until he meets Phoebe, no one has put him in his place to really look at his own behaviours. Basically his power trips are a reaction to whenever…

Review: Linger

Linger by V.E. Campudoni
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

New to me author V.E. Campudoni pens an interesting tale. Specifically, the BDSM in this story is hawt and romanticized. The characters are too. Enzio is the one who I liked in this story. From a character perspective, he has more depth. He's a gentle soul who also exudes some serious sexy dominant vibes. His job as a professional dominant may help this vibe going.

From a BDSM element, this book is good and I'd categorize as a Gateway into BDSM. With the requisite elite club which also makes this a glitterkink book for me, it is just the right tone for readers who want to get a little kinky. What brought this story down for me was the main character, Lana Matthews. She is a shallow user who doesn't deserve a friend like Enzio. She is clueless and thoughtless. Very little about her is admirable or redeemable. She's a dumbass who should be left in the cold so that Enzio could move on.

Oddly, this story isn't about fri…

Review: Leather and Grace

Leather and Grace by Maggie Ryan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Quentin is a broken man. His submissive, Beth disappeared years ago and he never got over it. It made him leave the lifestyle for a while. When he is pulled back against his will to help teach a class at the club he partial owns, his world is shaken up. Specifically, a new to BDSM submissive, Grace reminds him of all the reasons why he liked being a dominant. And why it is so good to have a submissive female on her knees, waiting to submit. Grace for her part, is a woman who is finally exploring her submissive desires. When she falls for the sexy "do not touch" instructor, Quentin, things start to get weird.

Always a fan of Ms. Ryan, I know I'm up for some good BDSM. She definitely delivers. The club is fabulous. The BDSM scenes are arousing, especially for those who enjoy D/s and power exchange. What is surprising is the suspense element to this story. It is well done with the right amount of tension. It bl…

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Buy this book now. This is a must read conclusion to this trilogy. Yes, this is the end of this series as far as the authors have noted even as it ends with a possible opening for more. I LOVED this book so much that after receiving it for review, I re-read this book at least twenty times within the first two weeks. This book is really that amazing.

In this third book, Nevada must form a house to save herself and her sisters from her evil grandmother. Nevada becomes what she has always disliked - a Prime of a House. Her growth and maturity to become ruthless whilst balancing her morals is a fascinating journey. Every step of the way, Rogan is with her, supporting her.

Review: At His Mercy

At His Mercy by Shelly Bell
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Awkward when your one night stand turns out to be your professor at college. This story was odd for me. It felt like it was going several different directions. My guess is to make the story a bit more complex with layers, there are several subplots going on. For me, they were not integrated that well and felt a bit klunky. I liked how this story started. Isabella has overcome a terrible trauma in her life and is going to live a little. Intrigued by BDSM, she hits up a club and somehow finds a dominant who takes her for a wild one night stand. Not particularly realistic, but it is erotic and I enjoyed the scene. With a memorable experience, she heads off to university with a light heart. This comes to a screeching halt when her professor whom she also will TA for is the man she slept with. Now from here, I'm expecting some naughty kinky professor/student sex. Whilst there is a bit and it is quite hot, there is a "single white…

Review: Cougar Bait

Cougar Bait by Evangeline Anderson
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

Ready for a whirlwind romance with a little bit of chasing the prey? This book starts up right after the last one. It is recommended to read the books in order but it isn't necessary. Samantha Becker is thrown into a supernatural world when her sister is inducted into the shifter world. Sammie is a no-nonsense science based woman. As a doctor, she is a realistic and these supernatural shifter world has thrown her for a loop. But she doesn't care because she is going to be returning to her sane life. Little does she know that her life saving tactics for Liam Keller has him now sniffing after her.

This story is hilarious. It is fun and lighthearted for the most part. I liked how Liam is a stealthy guy who flies under the radar and plays the "good ole boy". He is sneaky like a cat and catches Sammie completely off guard with his education and knowledge. It just goes to show, looks can be deceiving. The playful…

Review: Shadow Reaper

Shadow Reaper by Christine Feehan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Finally the second book is out! I have been thinking of this series for a while after the first book caught my interest and hooked me in. The second book does not disappoint. Whilst it could be read as a standalone, my preference is to read this series in order.

This book features the brother, Ricco. He has a limited time before he needs to find his mate. Ricco suffered during his time training in Japan. It is horrific what happened to him and I'm stunned. What he did to survive and become the kind of guy he is now is pretty amazing. The fear he still lives with is a bit breath taking. So when a girl comes into his life, Mariko, he is obviously suspicious. Especially as he knows she is the girl he saved when he trained in Japan.

Mariko is my kind of girl. She is a lethal assassin with hair sticks. What more do we need? She does meet the stereotypical Asian dragon lady American males seem to fantasy about. I can not lie, h…

Review: Deep Into Trouble

Deep Into Trouble by Dawn Ryder
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Saxon is a BAMF who takes charge whenever trouble comes looking for him. In this third book in the series, Saxon is ready to take bad guys apart. This third book can be read as a standalone. It would be better to read the books in the order written.

Ms. Ryder is quickly becoming an author I automatically want to read. For those who enjoy Maya Banks' KGI series, Ms. Ryder is the author for you. In this latest book with the sexy Saxon, there is suspense, betrayal and hot sex. Saxon is the quiet killer who showed up in a previous book. I liked his quiet manner of getting things done. He never really becomes riled up. In this book, as the main character, the readers get to see Saxon all hot and bothered by a sexy librarian. Yes, there is a reason why men have a fantasy about librarians and Ginger Boyce is a sterling example of why.

Ginger seems to be a sweet character who is totally out of her element. She's the shy librarian…
