Review: Breaking the Rules

Breaking the Rules by Ember Leigh
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Sweet and frustrating, Amara's love life is a bit of a roller coaster ride. Amara is all grown up and when she returns home to help care for her ailing mother, the last thing she expects is to stay in LA. Amara is an independent woman who has made a good life on the East Coast. She has a job where she provides value and it is something that gives her meaning. Coming home to LA feels like several steps back, but she gets to spend time with her brother and mother. She has missed them.

This story's conflict is Amara's love interest. She is attracted to her brother's best friend, Travis. She's always had a bit of a crush on the guy. Now that she's curvaceous and his is sexy hawt, sparks fly. I liked these two characters. They are relate-able and show the stresses of trying to create a life together when they have been single for so long. It isn't that they are set in their ways. It is more they have futu…

Review: Borderline

Sneaky Landry is at it again. What about BOB? #bookreview @tymberdalton
Borderline by Tymber Dalton
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What about Bob? When Bob first appeared in The Cardinal Rule, he came across as an afterthought. Because really, he is a paying submissive to Pro-Domme Tilly. What really could come out of that relationship? What's more is, I loved Cardinal Rule and the happily for now ending broke my heart. I have always been a Cris fan. Yes, Landry is sexy hawt. And Tilly I'm iffy about. Bob though, who the heck is Bob? Years later, brokenhearted and resigned to a life of watching from the outside, we finally learn about Bob. This book is a continuation of a couple of previous ones, but it is fine to read as a standalone.

Whilst I love the attention given to Bob in this story, I'm a bit mixed at times. He is a submissive male who enjoys women. He loves to submit to women. Getting involved with Cris and Landry is a bit odd for me. The way Landry sneakily tests Bob'…

Review: Wild Ride

erotic suspense is recommended for motorcycle club loving readers who have a thing for good boys undercover as bad boys @JAWalkerAuthor #bookreview

Wild Ride by Julie Ann Walker
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Why have I not read this series before? I'm usually iffy on motorcycle club themes because they don't always work for me. The life where females are either on a pedestal or in the gutter doesn't amuse me a bit. Arrogant domineering males rub me the wrong way. In this new to me series, Ms. Walker makes me regret not picking up the series earlier. Now I have to read all the books in the series. Starting with book 9 is probably not the best idea. It can be read as a standalone as I had zero issues getting caught up with the concept and world Ms. Walker built. I loved it.

Ethan aka Ozzie is a former Navy SEAL who works for a private firm using a motorcycle shop as a front. Keeping everything on the down low is critical. Unluckily for him, he falls for an investigative reporter wh…

Review: The Submissive Muse

The Submissive Muse by Tiffany N. York
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

The road to hell is paved with good intentions. This story is not what I expected and had I know the mental issues of the two main characters I would not have picked this book to read. If I could leave this book unrated on the review site, I would. Because this story is definitely not my cup of tea. I especially did not like the BDSM mixed into this story. It once again enforces the thought that only messed up people are in the lifestyle.

Liz fights bouts of depression. In fact, she met her husband, John, when she "accidentally" slit her wrist. Their marriage is based on a fantasy version of D/s. Basically, John keeps her in line when she goes off the deep end. The story starts out intriguing with a loving husband trying to set up a way to help his wife after he dies. It is clear she will need someone to help her out of the depression he knows she will spiral into. This is sweet and I like the concept. The proble…

Review: See You Sometime

Ms. Dalton pulls the rug out from under me. *shakes fist in the air* #bookreview @tymberdalton See You Sometime by Tymber Dalton
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Finally, a feel good story after a pounding of angst in this series. Skye is moving on to better things, coming back to Florida. Excited to read about her re-connection with a high school crush, I am humming happily. Then Ms. Dalton pulls the rug out from under me. *shakes fist in the air*

This story starts out so fluffy and fun. Skye meets up with Axel through their group of friends playing D&D. This geek element makes me smile, even if I don't know how to play D&D. Having friends who do play D&D, I can understand how great it can be for people to get together and play it. The glimpses into the game may sound Greek or geek so to speak, but it is hilarious to me.

Skye and Axel's chemistry when they reconnect is delicious. The flirtation and sensual tension is great. Even Axel's interest into kink is all looking …
