5 Stars for Caught on Camera: Part Three by Lily Harlem – #MM #Erotic #Sexy @Totally_Bound @lily_harlem

1.3

Title: Caught on Camera: Part Three
Author Name: Lily Harlem
Publication Date: January 23, 2015

Synopsis

Reece Carter had never set his sights on porn stardom before, but it seems now that’s exactly where he’s heading, as well as Las Vegas.

With the next scene of Slippery Slots about to be filmed, Reece can’t help but feel anxious. Now in Las Vegas and with The Strip his new playground, thoughts of the hung-like-a-donkey cowboy about to join the action are never far away.

Just as well he has Cade to distract him. Sexy, giving, beautiful Cade who somehow ‘gets’ what Reece is worrying about and smoothes out the wrinkles, as well as filling him with confidence.

As it turns out, there’s no need for worry and with every move, kiss and lick caught on camera, the ménage a trois scene starring Grayson from Texas kicks off in spectacular style.

With two sexy men attending his every need, Reece knows he has the best job on Earth and he’s getting paid handsomely for it. Wow, he hit the jackpot big time when he met Cade, and now all of his hot-spots are being hit with the same blissfully satisfying intensity.

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of MMM ménage.

Publisher’s Note: This book is best read in sequence as part of a serial.

FiveStars

Cade and Reece are shipped off to Las Vegas (from England, which I hadn’t quite realized until this part). The boys are going for their second scene which is to fulfill one of their characters fantasy… a threesome.
Again the chemistry is explosive.. sometimes literally. The fact that we don’t get to meet the third man until he walks in the door when filming has already started only makes it that much more exciting. I worried that the new dynamic would affect the chemistry, but it didn’t. It only was that much hotter and made the pages fly!
Although, I do wonder what the director was talking about before they started filming so I can’t wait to find out what happens in the next segment, plus there will be more Cade and Reece so I’ll be impatiently waiting for more!

3 Stars for Always the Quiet Ones by Amy Valenti – #FF #BDSM #Menage @AmyValenti @Totally_Bound

1.3

Title: Always the Quiet Ones
Author Name: Amy Valenti
Publication Date & Length: December 26, 2014 – 44pgs

Synopsis

She’s sweet, but far from innocent…

The self-proclaimed Queen of Casual Sex decides to do something about it, and along the way discovers that Lee has a dominant streak in the bedroom. That weekend, she and Lee tempt Nicola into a night of sexual submission to them both – but only until sunrise.

Reader Advisory: This book contains FF intimacy and scenes of BDSM.

Review

ThreeStar

The idea behind this short story was great. However, it fell completely flat for me.
Dana knows that Nicola wants Lee and that Lee wants Nicola but neither are doing anything about it. So she decides to be the one that makes it happens.
However, I didn’t understand her need to sleep with Lee to make that happen or her reasons for really wanting to be the third in the relationship. She is content for Lee and Nicola to have a committed relationship but her being sort there because Nicola likes to see Lee sleep with other women and she wanted the opportunity to be with Nicola.
The way the characters acted was hard to believe there was really any true feelings for each other. The sex wasn’t written all that well either.
Not to mention the BDSM that was thrown into the mix like it was a side thought. Neither of the ‘doms’ acted like doms and the ‘sub’ wasn’t submissive but for one scene.
Sadly, I was happy that the story was short.

5 Stars for Caught on Camera: Part Two by Lily Harlem – #MM #Erotic #Sexy @Totally_Bound @lily_harlem

1.3

Title: Caught on Camera: Part Two
Author Name: Lily Harlem
Publication Date & Length: January 8, 2015 – 57 pgs

Synopsis

With a solution to his money worries and an end to the dry spell in his sex life, it’s time for Reece to step up to the stage and prove he’s the hot new star of the show.

After agreeing to play one of the leading roles in Slippery Slots, Reece now has to shed his inhibitions, as well as his clothes.
But it’s okay, because Cade, his hunky co-star, has a knack for remembering lines, working the role and is skilled at achieving the required positions.

Soon the champagne is flowing, the petals on the bed scattering and the action is heating up. It really is an idyllic scene, the perfect moment for lovers, even if there is a cameraman zooming in on all the juicy, erotic details.

With twists in the plot and desire playing the leading role, Reece revels in his new career and throws himself into the part.

But can he forget about the camera and take what he wants from Cade? Is he allowed to bend the rules, and oh my, will he ever survive the torment of Cade’s super-talented, super-star mouth that pushes him to the very brink of ecstasy?

Reader Advisory: This book is best read in sequence as part of a serial.

Review

FiveStars

Another amazing installment of this series. I absolutely could not put it down!
At the beginning we get to see what Cade had in mind for Reece when they had their first time. Reece isn’t all on board with the new idea, but after a little cajoling by the boss man he is all for trying out a new career.
Then we watch perform his first scene on screen with Cade. Their chemistry is still off the charts and it’s super sexy.
Reece is the perfect first timer because even though he doesn’t always remember his lines, his ad libbing makes up for it. Even when he throws something completely unexpected into the mix.

3.5 Stars for Just a Little Unwell by Iyana Jenna – #MM @IyanaJenna

Just_a_Little_Unwell_400x600

Title: Just a Little Unwell
Author Name: Iyana Jenna
Publication Date & Length: January 4, 2015 – 23 pgs

Synopsis

Patrick Trafford is pleased with the simple life he has, spending his time tending a tiny garden accompanied by his best friend, Chad, a cockroach. Nevertheless, he can’t hide the excitement bubbling in him as a man suddenly appears in the garden.

Damien Abner politely welcomes, albeit somewhat at a loss, Patrick’s warm offer to spend time with him. To have a coffee, watch some movie, and dance along with the characters in it.

They begin to date and Patrick has never been happier, though he barely knows who Damien is—not that it matters to him. For him, being clueless does mean bliss.

ThreeandHalfStars

This is a quick read that sparked my interest for the childlike imagination of the main character. It would be hard to describe the story without giving anything away, especially since the author didn’t include some elements in the blurb.

I wish she would have, actually. I was left feeling uncertain about the direction the story took and why the characters behaved as they did. Unfortunately, I suspect some readers may be triggered by the same things that caught me by surprise. Although it could potentially ruin the twist, I do think a warning would be good given the subject matter.

I liked it, but there were enough things that made me uncomfortable that I was left uncertain how I felt about it.

Excerpt

Patrick floats through the following day. When Damien shows up, Patrick takes him immediately to near the TV, sets the video cassette into place, and clutches Damien’s hands as they dance. He offers coffee and cookies this time and finally brings his guitar out to the sitting room. Patrick feels a bit uneasy when Damien keeps looking at him instead of his guitar.

“Do you like it?”

“Huh?”

“My guitar.”

Confusion flashes across Damien’s good-looking face for a second.

“Oh, absolutely.” His smile cracks. He shifts on the couch to make space for Patrick. Patrick plops down next to him and begins to sing. It’s “More Than Words,” one of his favorite songs. Damien listens carefully.

Damien is silent, even after Patrick has stopped singing. His eyes turn soft.

“So, what do you say? What do you think of my voice?” Patrick asks impatiently.

Damien’s still quiet. Then he closes his eyes and reaches out a hand. He touches the side of Patrick’s face.

Patrick holds his breath and closes his eyes too. He doesn’t dare to move. Damien’s hand feels so warm and good on his skin.

He lets out a heavy sigh when the hand is gone and opens his eyes.

“That’s the most beautiful voice I’ve ever heard,” Damien says.

Patrick doesn’t know what to do. He puts aside his guitar — grabs it back — lays it down on the table — takes it back again and holds it close to him. He rocks slowly on the couch.

“Thank you,” he murmurs — not sure whether he is expressing gratitude for the compliment or the touch.

Damien stands up.

“You’re leaving?” Patrick asks, disappointed.

“I have other things I need to do, Patrick.”

Patrick swallows deep. He turns away. “Okay. It’s almost dark anyway and I haven’t been to the garden.”

“Yeah.”

“Will you come again?”

“Do you want me to?”

“I’d love you to.”

“So I’ll come.”

Damien waves and walks away.

As if to remind Patrick he’s there, Chad crawls up Patrick’s shirt front. Patrick palms him up and puts him on the table.

“Do you like him, too?” Patrick asks.

Chad only chirps.

5 Stars for Caught on Camera: Part One by Lily Harlem – #MM #Erotic #Sexy @Totally_Bound @lily_harlem

1.3

Title: Caught on Camera: Part One
Author Name: Lily Harlem
Publication Date & Length: December 26, 2014 – 41pgs

Synopsis

When Reece Carter is caught on camera canoodling with hunky gardener Cade Davenport, a new, super-sexy opportunity presents itself that he just can’t walk away from.

Reece Carter is sweating the in dirt and feeling the heat. It’s a scorching hot day and he’s slaving away indoors. But at least he has a nice view from the window—sexy gardener Cade Davenport—no job too big or too small—who is mowing the lawn minus his shirt.

Soon thirst overcomes Reece and he finds himself swimming, kissing and getting frisky in the hot tub with the super-confident, seize-the-moment Cade, whose wit, humour and cocky smile is irresistible.

What Reece doesn’t know is that the walls have ears and the trees have eyes. His every moan, gasp and erotic move is being recorded in fine and shocking detail.

But what does that mean? And what about the intriguing offer Cade puts to him? Shouldn’t he just punch his lights out for filming him without permission? And will Reece’s life ever be the same again after being caught on camera?

Reader Advisory: This book is best read in sequence as part of a serial.

Whew.. Designer meets Gardener and things get HOT.
Reece has been hired to repaint a room for Mrs. Henley-Smythe, but what he finds is an extremely hot man working on the yard out back. When Reece can no longer stand it, he heads down to see if the man takes his bait.
Not only does Cade, the gardener, take his bait, he takes things up another notch. Things get heated in the pool, hot tub and on the deck.
Reece can’t believe what has happened especially when Cade comes to find him and exchange numbers. Maybe this is his chance at finding someone to help him get over the brutal breakup he went through.
Oh but, there is so much more in play than Cade let on.
I flew through this as I couldn’t stop reading! I had to know what they were going next. Loved both the men and the situation felt genuine and was incredibly sexy. Can’t wait for more!

3.5 Stars for Tap Out (Bannon’s Gym #3) by Cat Grant – #MM #MMA #Boxing @CatGrant2009

1.3

Title: Tap Out (Bannon’s Gym #3)
Author Name: Cat Grant
Publication Date & Length: January 13, 2015 – 202 pgs

Synopsis

It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog.

As a child, Tom Delaney did the best he could to protect his mother from his abusive father, but her eventual suicide left him a guarded and wary man who’s still carrying around a metric ton of baggage.

At Bannon’s Gym, Tom learned how to take back his power, and found love with fellow mixed martial arts fighter Travis Gallagher. Yet Tom can’t bring himself to take their relationship to the next level. Not if moving in together means leaving behind Gloria, his surrogate mom, who’s desperately ill.

When Gloria’s son, Eddie, hires an out-of-work nurse to care for Gloria, Tom is out of excuses—and afraid he’s being pushed out of his family of choice. That fear explodes in a violent sparring session that leaves Travis with a broken nose and Tom on the brink of getting booted out of Bannon’s Gym for good.

When tragedy strikes, Tom realizes it’ll take more than fists to conquer his fears, or he risks losing everything—his fighting career, his family, and the man he loves.

Warning: Sweat- and testosterone-drenched alpha males ahead! More angst than an entire season of Downton Abbey! Wear a helmet—this could get messy!

Review

ThreeandHalfStars

This was a story of forgiveness, new chances, love and heart. Gloria seems to be the glue that holds this family together. With her having COPD, everyone rally’s around her – wanting her to fight her illness.
There are several characters who create this story. I have not read the previous books in this series, but this one was supposed to be about Tom and Travis. I found Tom’s character to be whiny and I had a hard time liking him. I liked Aaron much more in this story. Even though I don’t like what he did in his past, this story seemed to be more about him getting his second chance.
Gloria was a character that if she were healthy, you know she would have been a pistol. As it was, she was a handful – funny, full of life, despite being sick, the alpha of the family.
Tom and Travis are navigating their way through life, their relationship and MMA fighting. I didn’t really know what the MMA fighting had to do with the story and that might be because I have not read the other books in this series. Maybe then I would understand what the fighting had to do with the characters.
Overall, this book was full of angst that didn’t really need to be there. There was an immature relationship between Tom and Travis, a second chance for Aaron and a patch work family who must find their way through a tragic loss.

If you’re looking for epic sci-fi, fantasy, or historicals, that’s not me. Contemporary all the way, baby!

However, if you’re looking for down to earth, complicated characters dealing with real-world problems (and the occasional comfort read!), I might just fit the bill. 🙂

5 Stars for Taliasman (Beyond Fairytales #9) by Anastasia Vitsky – #FF #Lesbian #FairyTales @AnastasiaVitsky

1.3

Title: Taliasman (Beyond Fairytales #9)
Author Name: Anastasia Vitsky
Publication Date & Length: October 21, 2014 – 72pgs

Synopsis

Born to a destitute woodworker who wanted a son to carry on the family business, Talia grew up with one phrase on her lips: “If I had been born a boy.” If she had been born a boy, she would have been cherished, supported, and launched into the world with her father’s legacy. As only a worthless girl, she toils all day long to earn her handful of inferior grain.

Far away in the heavenly palace, Queen Vina receives a mysterious coin necklace from Nicodemus, teller of stories. Compelled by the throbbing heartbeat, she scours the earth to come across Talia, enslaved to a family who never wanted her. Rather than admit her motives, Vina purchases the girl with a sack full of gold. Furious, betrayed, and homesick, Talia endeavors to share her misery with the entire palace. Vina, afraid to confess her love, allows herself to become trapped in the role of brutal slave owner.

Talia, bred to expect nothing but misery, faces the first choice of her life. Will she accept love, even if it comes from an unlikely source? Or will she reject the one who offers her everything?

FiveStars

I am so glad I chose to read this gem. It’s a beautiful story with a dreamy, ethereal quality to it (there’s a reason for that, of course). It’s a quick and absorbing read.

I had a hard time putting this one down. I don’t normally enjoy first-person narrative with shifting perspectives, but I think this worked best in that format. We needed to see both sides of the story in order for it to make sense as a whole.

One of my favorite aspects of the story was the exploration of what it means to have been born a girl in a world that seems geared toward preferring boys. The desire to be a boy for its advantages (rather than because of one’s innate sense of gender) is always worth talking about.

The spiritual themes were also present throughout, though I never had the sense that there was heavy-handed religion. There was a sense of holy love underneath the story (which is also intentional; if you don’t know the story this is based on, do read the note at the end).

Finally, this is yet another story which proves there doesn’t need to be graphic content for a story to be romantic and sensual. The scenes between Vina and Talia are lovely and perfect for their relationship.

I enjoyed this anthology, but I do wish that these stories were a little longer, but the stories were great! Steamy, sometimes funny, sometimes emotional (especially that first one – I could feel the embarrassment!) I love when writers get together to compile their stories. Everyone has a different style and it makes it that much more fun to read. It also helps me as a reader to find new authors that I might not read otherwise.

Because the stories are so short, it does make it slightly hard to really dig in to a story line – I am not a big lover of “insta – love” stories, so some of these did not fit great with what I enjoy. However, even with those quick connections, these authors put together a great anthology.

SMDSJ_WolfsSacrifice

Title: Wolf’s Sacrifice (A Pack of Light Story)
Author Name: Draven St. James
Publication Date & Length: January 20, 2015 – 160pgs

Synopsis

Sean Maddox has one basic goal: to protect the Northwest Pack. That priority helps him stay grounded—until the day the pack rescues Liam. Suddenly Sean is finding any excuse to be around the sweet, blind shifter. But trying to focus his thoughts on keeping Liam safe and not exploring the whole laundry list of carnal fantasies he’s been having is anything but grounding. It doesn’t help that Sean’s wolf makes it damn clear it believes Liam belongs to him.

From the first deep breath of Sean Maddox’s intoxicating scent, all Liam wants to do is strip naked for the sexy beta and let the wolf claim him. Hiding away his desires seems like the best plan, given after a lifetime in captivity Liam is just learning what it means to be free. What does he know about being a mate? More to the point, would Sean even want him if he knew the truth?

As Sean and Liam struggle with their growing craving for each other an old enemy steps out of the shadows. With secrets lurking and fate twisting two worlds together a sacrifice must be made, but can the two mates live with the consequences?

Review

FourandHalfStars

This was a wonderful story of love and what people will do in the name of love, even if it’s misguided.
Liam and Cory are outsiders until they are rescued and brought in to Alpha Merek’s Northwest pack where Sean is a beta.
Liam has been experimented on for years. Because of those experiments, he was blinded and it also inhibits his ability to shift in to his animal self. When Liam is rescued, he falls quick and hard for Beta Sean. Liam holds a secret that he worries will make him unworthy of Sean’s affection. It also makes Liam vulnerable to the scientists (if you can call them that) who are still hunting him and the others who were rescued.
Sean is the Beta of the Northwest pack. He wants to protect everyone in the pack, however, when Liam is rescued, Sean has a hard time prioritizing the pack over Liam. The chemistry between these two was amazing – despite Liam’s handicaps, Sean knows what he wants, even if it doesn’t make sense.
Emma is a sweet, loving healer. She is keeping a secret herself and will have to trust that her bond with Liam is strong enough to withstand the trials and tests of their friendship.
I really enjoyed how Emma’s life was intertwined and how we were given a glimpse in to her story too. I would love to read more about her story.
The sex between Sean and Liam is hot – if not a little juvenile. There was definitely potential for very steamy, hot scenes, but I felt these were somewhat tame. I don’t know if this was because Liam was handicapped, but I hope not.
I do wish that there was different way to “watermark” the story – it was horribly distracting and made the story choppy to read.

Excerpt

“You don’t have to stay here with me,” Liam murmured.

Sean twisted the cap off Liam’s root beer and pressed the condensation-slick bottle to Liam’s hand until his slender fingers curled around it.

“I know,” he responded, studying a drop of moisture slipping off the bottle to make a damp trail along Liam’s hand.

“Guarding me?” After propping the bottle between his thighs, Liam licked the drop that had traveled to the pulsing blue vein of his wrist.

“I can be around you without being part of your protective detail.” Sean swallowed past his suddenly parched throat. The man had no idea how seductive his innocent movements were.

Liam reached out until his hand was on Sean’s thigh. “Just giving you a hard time.”

You have no idea.
