Review: A Fine Line

Image
A Fine Line by Sue Horsford
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

On a lark, I picked up this book to try out some new BDSM erotica. I'm mixed about this story. Let's start with what I enjoyed. I liked the characters. I enjoyed the tangled twisted plot and I loved the BDSM erotica.

First, from a character building, I liked our main characters. Faye Austin is a woman who has always been in the shadow of her sister. She is treated like the proverbial red headed stepchild. Except she is not a stepchild. She is the first born and it seems, statuesque. The start of the story is a horrific discovery about her husband with many pictures of her sister, Ginny. This is heartbreaking for Faye as she's always come in second to her sister. Even with her husband? How can this be? The competition between the two sisters is sad. Because it is clear this divisiveness is developed by their parents to the detriment of all. As adults, the two sisters are still not able to overcome it.

Review: Hayley's Heartland

Image
Hayley's Heartland by Jennie May
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

When it comes to domestic discipline, Ms. May is always a pleasure to read. This is the second book in the series and it can be read as a standalone. It is easy to pick up the relationships between each of the characters and their dynamics.

Hayley was a big time city girl who found her place in a small town with a man who practices domestic discipline. In theory, she agrees with him. In practice... she sometimes forgets and becomes willfully disobedient. She believes she is doing it because she is right. From an outsider perspective, it is clear Hayley is impulsive and doesn't trust her patient boyfriend, Joel.

I liked how Joel disciplined Hayley. She needed more than just the belt in my opinion. Her heart is in the right place; her execution is totally flawed. When her husband corrects her, she "pretends" to get it but she is still headstrong and doesn't seem to grasp the concept of a domestic discipline…

Review: In The Rough

Image
In The Rough by Sara Brookes
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This series gets sexier and sexier. In the Rough totally strokes my techie pleasure button with the virtual reality kink to the next level. Will this technology ever become reality? Who is to know? Techies need to take note of Ms. Brookes' ideas and capitalize on them!

I enjoyed this story because I really liked Marcus Holly. He is a guy who I can understand and I feel badly for, even when I think he acts illogically. He is a great guy who just wants to live his life peacefully. He also hopes to make some money so that he can have food and basic shelter. All of this hinges on his cutting edge VR technology. He wasn't expecting it to be picked up by a BDSM club, but he adjusts and creates some pretty awesome scenarios. What I liked about Ms. Brookes' writing style is how she incorporates enough technology to make it kind of believable. The technology is not quite there yet, but her descriptions of what needs to happen in …

Review: Affairs of Dragons

Image
Affairs of Dragons by Lena Austin
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Sweet and sexy, dragon lovers will enjoy this paranormal romance. Jon is a quiet man who knows he is different than others. After seeing what they do to boys who like other boys, Jon keeps a low profile. When he is outed by an unsavory booty call, Jon is beaten near to death and sent off as a virgin sacrifice to the evil dragon.

The Dragon aka Patch is a blue dragon who is a bit of an anomaly amongst other dragons. He yearns for a mate who is also a male. When his latest tribute is a poorly disguised male, he does a little something different than his usual catch and release of virgins. He actually wants to keep this one and mayhaps take a bit of a nibble.

This story moved along at a fast clip and the end came all too quick. The characters are adorable and too sweet together. The story does bring up another thread that I hope will be featured in the next book. The sex is mild as Jon is a virgin. Patch and Jon's chemistry i…

Review: Rough Justice

Image
Rough Justice by Kelley Armstrong
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Trust in Ms. Armstrong to bring a faery tale into modern times. The way she can blend the supernatural into white colour jobs is impressive. In this story, the fae, specifically the Hunt have come into the corporate world. Their "day" job perfectly fits their dark persona. I am not sure if this story is an off shoot of another one because it did feel like I was missing some back stories. I was still easily able to get caught up to speed. Ms. Armstrong provides a bit of reference points in each instance.

Our focus here is Olivia. She is now part of the hunt. It is her job to witness and bring down the ones who thought they can get away with a crime. But how does she know that the Wild Hunt can always determine if the perpetrator is guilty? The Wild Hunt sets up a test for Olivia to believe without question. She tries and fails because she is a doubting Thomas. In this case, it was interesting because Olivia is right a…
