The Romance Review

A winter blizzard storm brings two magical men together in the snowy mountains of Colorado.

In ROCKY MOUNTAIN CHRISTMAS, Cooper and Alejandro's initial meeting gets off to a very rocky start. Cooper is a ranger in the Rockies and he's been burned by crazy photographers unprepared for the wintery weather. Armed with the information that Alejandro is from Florida, Cooper is irritable and condescending when he first checks up on him.

Cooper's attitude quickly turns around as it is apparent Alejandro is more than capable of taking care of himself. In addition, his photographs are awe inspiring. Alejandro finds the sexy Cooper to be too abrasive which is a shame. Cooper does his best to overcome his negative first impression since he is very attracted to a Latino man.

The sex in this story is sexy and slightly kinky. It's mentioned several times Cooper loves a Latino Dom. Other than pitching, Alejandro doesn't exhibit much Dom behaviour. Sure, he likes to call Cooper "boy", but there isn't any D/s, BD or SM involved. Now if the sexy scenes for the two snowbound men involved a bit of tying up, spanking and orgasm denial, then it would certainly kick up the kink. As it was presented, I categorize this tale as SugarKink.

The plot of the story is straightforward and simplistic. It's sweet and the switching between the points of view gives the reader insight to both characters. Both men are regular people with an added magical oomph. The witchery and precognitive abilities gave this story an added twist which is needed in order for the story to work. It helped make the story more enjoyable.

This wintery Christmas story is recommended for m/m romance lovers who enjoy a steamy snowbound sexfest.

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.

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.
        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 …
