Review: New York to Dallas


New York to Dallas
New York to Dallas by J.D. Robb

My rating: 4 of 5 stars



Eve is back and the tie ins to her past are mind blowing for me. Ms. Robb does another excellent job in her romantic suspense. I'm always impressed by how thorough Ms. Robb writes her mysteries. The clues and police work are always so thorough. It is interesting to see how much Eve has changed in her hard stance with using Roarke. We now see her using him more and more, not exactly a crutch, but definitely an advantage no other cop has.

The pain and agony Eve goes through with her nightmares is sad. It moves me because I understand her nightmares completely. I can more than empathize; I can sympathize. Ms. Robb capture's Eve's dilemma very well. Why does she feel joy at the killing in the dreams? It's not wrong and Mira does a great job in explaining to Eve.

This story is more personal for Eve than several of the recent ones. This made the book better for me. For a delusional psychopath, Issac McQueen to face off with Eve, that was pure enjoyment. It's nice to have villains who are not dumb. They do make mistakes, but it's more of a challenge and makes the story more thrilling.

The Roarke element in this story is steady as always. Love the man! He's rich and loving. It just makes a girl wish that a man like this truly exists. I can totally understand the allure. Roarke once again proves he's the husband of the year. This romantic suspense book is recommended to romance readers who enjoy a kick butt heroine and a strong supporting lover.

INTERVIEW WITH BEAST

La Crimson Femme: Welcome, Beast. Thank you for popping in. You and Jane have been together for centuries. Please share with us your favorite memory of Jane and why.
Beast: Jane is Beast and Beast is Jane. Beast’s best memory of Jane is Jane using fingers to get out of cage. Was first time Beast thought human-shape was im-por-tant. Jane saved Beast/Jane. Was good memory. And … (perks ears, thinking) When Jane first saw/smelled Bruiser, primo to vampire Leo Pellissier. Wanted both as mate. Was gooood memory. (chuffs)
La Crimson Femme: Yes, Bruiser and Leo together would be divine. *fans self* I can understand why Beast would want bo…

Sensual Stapling

What?How can stapling be sexy?Who wants to be stapled?How on earth did these BDSM deviants pervert a stapler?
        Are these the thoughts running through your head?They were the thoughts running through my head.The only time I've seen stapling done on a person is on the Jackass Movie.There doesn't seem to be a clip of it on Youtube.However, Steve-O from Jackass did do it again with a regular stapler here.
        The stapler I'm referring to is NOT a regular office stapler or a staple gun found at a hardware store.Could you use those?Yes.Is it advisable?No.Instead, we are going to learn about surgical staple guns.There are a couple of different brands.
        The focus of this topic is where you can staple and how you can mix it up in your scene.
Safety
        Yes, it's safety time again!It's boring but mandatory.
        First, stapling does cause a break in the skin.Depending on the person and sometimes even the time of the month, a person may or ma…

Chemical Play

What is chemical play? Is it acids that are used to burn body parts? No. It's using different types of substances to illicit sensation on the skin and perhaps in the body. Generally the substances are in liquid form for easy application. I'm going to go through only the ones I've used. I am sure there are more. Hopefully others will be happy to share their experiences. As usual, I'm going to use the terms Top and bottom for the person applying the person receiving, respectively.

Safety first

     With chemical play, while there is a lessor possibility of harm, it still exists. There can be adverse reactions. It could be a person is allergic to the chemical. It is important to ask about any allergies the bottom may have.

     Another thing to be concerned with chemical play is where it contacts. There are some things which can burn and temporarily damage delicate mucus membranes. Not everyone's body reacts the same to chemicals so it …
