Review: A Roll of the Dice

A Roll of the Dice by Tymber Dalton

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Women interested in kinky sex and have a vanilla husband, this is the book for you. Ms. Dalton is one of the best writers when it comes to an accurate portrayal of the BDSM lifestyle. In a roll of dice, I can totally relate to this book.

Jenny and Mike have been married for a long time. While they still love each other dearly, sex is sort of blah. Jenny's interest in sex is roused when she reads a kinky book in her book club.

Jenny wants to explore the lifestyle and lucky for her, one of the women in the book club lives it. Excited, she drags her reluctant husband, Mike, to a munch. The munch is more eye opening than Mike expected. Specifically, Mike encounters a person whom he works with and it goes a bit downhill from there.

As one of the main moderators for the largest BDSM group on Goodreads, this story is all too familiar to me. Ms. Dalton does an excellent job of capturing the desires of a woman wanting more in her …

Review: Beaches and Cream

Beaches and Cream by Kojo Black

My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

A 3.5 star book, this is not one to be missed for F/f lovers. Beaches and cream is a coming of age story for Amanda. Amanda finally takes up on the offer to spend the summer vacation with her best friend Tia. This is a trip Amanda's been turning down for years because her mother isn't fond of either Tia or her mother, Veronica. Finally growing up and ready to make her own decisions, Amanda's experience is an eye opening one.

This summer vacation is one which makes me yearn. Why? Because it sounds like a dream. Amanda is initiated into the arts of Sapphic delights. When past lovers are revealed, it throws Amanda into a loop. It does not stop her from the tempting seducer who brings Amanda to climax after climax.

The sex in this story is hawt. The F/f sex is sensual and uninhibited. The entire vibe of this book is of smexy free love. Between the relaxing beach scenes and the smoking sex at the private pool…

Blog Tour: The Two Gentlemen of Altona


Review: The Two Gentlemen of Altona

The Two Gentlemen of Altona by Lisa Henry

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Doing the right thing sometimes makes life complicated.  Henry Page is a seemingly sweet college boy staying with an older lady.  Some people think he is conning her out of money with sex.  This is half true.  However, the way Henry charms people out of their money is not exactly a con nor exactly illegal.  The problem is when he witnesses a murder by a wanted criminal.  He wants no part of testifying.  His good deed was calling the cops and reporting it.  Special Agent Ryan McGuinness, aka Mac, feels differently.  He is going to nail this criminal and Henry is going to help him, even if it kills him. 

This story is humorous and different than what I'm used to from Ms. Henry and Ms. Rock.  The two main characters are opposites.  Mac is a stand-up guy who is made to look like a fool multiple times by Henry.  A reader who tends to take life seriously and is responsible will feel bad for Mac.  Mac is stuck with irreve…

Review: The Ravishing of Beauty

The Ravishing of Beauty by Jessica Satin

My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

This is a 3.5 star book. It kind of blew my mind. Ms. Satin is a new to me author and if she continues to write in this vein, I'm going to be reading all of her books. This book is originally a freebie and I didn't know what to expect except a fairy-tale-retold with an erotic bent. How erotic could it be?

This is definitely a savage retelling of Beauty and the Beast and one of the better ones I've read in a long time. The length of the book is just right. The flipping between past and present is a bit disorienting at times. Ms. Satin needs to work on her segues.

What I liked about this books is the savage primal feel to it. Beast is a beast and he takes Beauty hard. The bloodplay in this books is animalistic and raw. The sex in here is rough and punishing. The lust between Beauty and Beast is strong and well depicted. The violence in this book in a nonchalant manner should be disturbing but it …

Review: Gestapo Girl

Gestapo Girl by Lindsey Brooks

My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars

Why did I wait so bloody long to read this book? Definitely a book to add to the spank bank. I must have cum four or five times whilst reading this naughty book. Mr. Brooks does a lovely job going back and forth between two different times. From the start, switching between the Nazi prison and the Allie's military installation is a nice compare and contrast. For those who are able to catch on, the big reveal near the end of the book is not a surprise. Mr. Brooks does a great job of setting it up and bring it all together.

From a world building and writing perspective, Mr. Brooks always does a great job. What he really excels in is the dastardly sex scenes. SMOKING HAWT is how they should be described. He doesn't back off and white wash the interrogation. He doesn't fade to back. Instead, he gives depraved details of rape, violation and abuse. His characters are fabulous as they perpetrate sexual tortures. …

Review: A Good Man

A Good Man by Marc Nobbs

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A young boy coming into his own, Paul Robertson's story is detailed in a wonderful manner. Mr. Nobbs pens a fantastic story of how the choices a person makes can lead to their current situation. This story is basically a "what-if" story with a West Side Story theme. The two opposing sides are Villagers and Townies. The Townies are the blue collar worker families. The Villagers are the white collar or "rich" families. These two shall never meet. This is the unwritten rule that all follow.

Paul is a guy who marches to his own drum beat. He is the nicest guy and on top of it, he does what he thinks is right, regardless of what others say. He is classified as a Villager and he's fine with it. This is until one day he sees the head Villager, Clarissa, being physically accosted. He defends her and this begins the start of Villagers and Townies mixing.

The start of this story is very slow. Mr. Nobbs spen…

Review: The Turning Season

The Turning Season by Sharon Shinn

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Karadel is a vet who connects well with her animals.  Why?  Because she's shifted into their forms at one point or another.  The third book in this series can be read as a standalone.  Karadel aka Kara lives alone far away from everyone else.  She lives in the countryside in Illinois because she shifts erratically and she never knows what animal she will shift into.  She's a shifter through her parents' bloodlines.

This world of shifters created by Ms. Shinn is bleak.  Shifters don't last long in this world.  They die not because they are hunted.  Not because they fight with each other, but because their body just can't take the stress of it all and it gives out.  This interpretation of shifters actually makes more sense than the romantic mythology of living a long life and super healing. 

This story is more than just about Kara finding a lover and helping friends in need.  It's about acceptance.  This is …

Review: Bound for Keeps

Bound for Keeps by S.E. Jakes

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This series is highly addictive for me. It's more than just the BDSM which S.E. Jakes is good at writing. It's the characters which pull me in. The men are always so damaged and Ms. Jakes writes damaged men so very well. Men with PTSD and men who have had to hide themselves. This is a 3.5 star book for me just due to the hawtness between the three men.

Shane, Reed and Keith each have their own past burden. When Shane comes out of no where and falls on Reed and Keith's doorstep, frozen and hurt, it is a sign. There are a few "contrived" signs in this story which frankly, I enjoyed. What I enjoyed most is the dynamic between each of the characters. The erotic power exchange in this story is exquisitely written for those who love giving up power. The struggles these three men go through to become a threesome is wonderful to watch.

The "burn" on Shane is infuriating and it is good he is found…
