Review

ThreeStar

A quick easy to read mild erotic novel.
Rather predictable but snappy, interesting and a fun way to wile away the time.
I would have liked more of a story line and stronger characters hence the three stars, but a fresh and uncomplicated read.

I feel wishy-washy about this story. Part of me wants to rate it higher because it was well-written and a nice, quick, interesting read. But the other part of me keeps dragging me back to a couple of plot points that I have a problem with. Truthfully, this story might be considered erotica, and I definitely don’t have a problem with erotica. But it seems to me that the story is struggling to be considered a romance, and that’s where some things kind of break down for me. Kat seems extremely shallow to me, and because of that, it’s hard to believe she feels anything deeper with Lil than she does with the other two we see her with. And it’s hard to understand why Lil is so stubborn about her anyway; not only does Kat ignore her to hook up with other women, but she seems to actually dislike Lil at first, so why does Lil keep coming back for more? Also, and this may just be a personal thing, but if I’m reading a romance about two people finally getting together, I don’t expect to read explicit details from casual hook-ups that occur before the two lovers get together. All that does is convince me that Kat is incapable of the sort of relationship Lil seems to want. And Kat seems to have a lot of sex. I don’t understand why sex with Lil is any different. It isn’t like they got to know each other any better than any of the others Kat had sex with, so what changed? Again, this almost seems to be a mixture of erotica and romance, but if so, it missed the mark for me.

I have to say I really enjoyed this sexy little story. It had some fun, hot scenes, but then we got to see a relationship sort of develop on another front.
While I thought the story was really really well written and I did enjoy reading it, I think it was missing a bit of romance to the actual relationship.
It was fun to read about Kat’s exploits, but the relationship felt sort of rushed and we missed out on the true romance of them coming together for reasons other than sex.

Kat works in a bar and picks up plenty of girls to sleep with. When Lil shows an interest she doesn’t seem impressed and carries on going home with girls for fun.  When her best friend Carla sets them up to spend time together they hit it off and eventually get it together and have explosive sex.  This was a fun story to while away some time and very hot.  I wasn’t too keen on Kat as she was a bit of a user and showed no respect for the girls she was picking up.  I thought he sudden about-face when she got together with Lil didn’t entirely ring true.  I liked Lil though and felt she deserves someone who would treat her well.  I’m not sure Kat was that person. Nevertheless a happy ending and a decent story.

ThreeStar

This was a quick, hot read; however, I would class it more erotica than romance, as we don’t see much romance developing with the characters. The story was hot, well written, and engaging; however, my issues with the story originate with Kat.

Kat seemed to be likeable upon first blush, but upon further reading I found her to be shallow and more about a fun time than a long time, which there is not anything necessarily wrong with; however, I feel we don’t see enough character development to support her quickly being a relationship kind of woman. I know with short reads it is challenging to fit everything in that needs to be; however, it is hard to fathom how Kat can go from basically hating Lil and brushing her off to wanting to be with only her.

I also don’t understand why, even after being ignored and blown off, Lil keeps going. I guess as the reader I don’t understand what keeps Lil from moving on, and honestly part of me wanted her to blow off Kat and find someone worthy of her.

It was a fun and sexy read; however, I had trouble liking the main character enough to truly enjoy the book.

Excerpt

“Strong, like Russian bull. Right. More like bullshit. Or more like ‘stubborn like a bull.’ Shit… I mean, really, what is it with her? I just don’t get it.” I lifted the hose out of the caddy and added more Diet Coke to Carla’s glass. It was the middle of the day—too late for lunch but too early for happy hour.

Carla took a drink and gave me a piercing look. “What are you talking about? Or should I say who are you talking about?”

“It’s that dyke, Lily, or Lil. Whatever. She’s always coming in here, bugging the crap out of me. Like just before you got here. She snuck up to the bar while I was changing out one of the kegs and said something like, ‘Hey little lady, want me to help you with that?’ I practically cracked my skull open on the top of the beer cooler. And then she grins and says that ‘Strong, like Russian bull’ thing and makes a muscle. She makes me crazy.”

“I don’t know who you’re talking about. What does she look like?”

“Yeah, you know her. She’s got short brown hair. Not boy-short, just short and kind of wavy. She’s maybe in her late thirties, but she looks like she’s in good shape—like she works out or maybe plays some kind of sport. She wears jeans and T-shirts, mostly. You know who I mean. Lil.”

“Kat, you just described half the women who come into this place. So, what else does she do to annoy you?”

I grabbed a glass of water and told Carla all about it. The way Lil always seemed to be there when I looked up, but how she never bought a drink. And the way she bullied customers at the bar when they started getting the least bit rowdy. She was costing me tips.

“And there was that time last week when this cute butch was hitting on me, and Lil shoved her way in front of the woman and asked something inane, like if I knew what time it was, or something. The girl just backed out of the way and decided to go hit on someone else, I guess…and she was cute, too. I don’t know, Carla, the bitch is out to get me, but I didn’t do anything to her. I swear. Hell, I don’t even know her.”

Carla started to grin.

“What?”

“Geez Louise! Can’t you tell when someone’s flirting with you? Or has it really been that long?”

“Flirting? Well, she’s not my type,” I said. I gave Carla a wilting look and went back to doing the prep work for the evening. Flirting? Is that possible? If it was, it was like the way boys used to flirt with girls in third grade. I was seriously waiting for her to punch me in the arm—and then I’d have to smack the crap out of her.

I wiped down the bar after restocking, and then I began preparing the drink garnishes and gave Carla another refill.

“You know, Kat, I’ve known you for seven years now, and I still don’t know what your type is. Just who are you looking for?”

She put a ten on the bar, and I leaned over and gave her a kiss. “Maybe I’m not looking for anyone. Do I have to be?”

“I don’t know what I’m gonna do with you.” Carla shook her head on her way out. She opened the front door to bright, glaring sunlight and waved as she stepped outside. The door shut behind her, wrapping the place in twilight shadow again, the way a bar should be.

Synopsis

A reporter and the thief he’s investigating both fall for a golden dancer forging a ménage of love and lies that could send one to prison and one to the morgue.

Mac MacAllister is obsessed; the online news reporter needs enough evidence to write a story accusing billionaire art collector Daniel Terrebone of stealing The Golden Dancer, a priceless work of art, from Horst Von Berg. The story promises the recognition Mac craves. But then Mac meets a real golden dancer, ballet star Trelain Medveyev, and his attraction to the man rocks his formerly straight world.

When the mysterious Terrebone “collects” this beautiful dancer, too, Mac rushes to the rescue like a knight in shining cargo pants and plunges into a three-way passion that tears him between love and guilt. Can Mac keep investigating when his story could send one man to prison and another to the morgue? Will this reporter get his story or get his men?

Review

 FiveStarsI am just going to be completely honest here and say that at first for maybe the first chapter or two I did not think I was going to truly like this book. But I pushed ahead and by the time I got to the third chapter I was hooked and completely engrossed in this book.

This is a book that revolves around a man that thinks he is straight and is a reporter (Mac), a man who is out in the open gay and proud of it and a premier ballet dancer (Trelain), and a man that is a billionaire and possibly a thief (Daniel). These are three completely different men and somehow or another they just complete one another. They are all three the most unlikely pair but once they are all together it is as if the pieces to the puzzle finally click into place to make it a complete puzzle.

But among these the men there is also a huge mystery that Mac is trying to unravel but at the same time trying to decide if unraveling this mystery is worth maybe possibly losing the two men he has fallen in love with. Daniel is also in the dead center of this mystery because if Mac’s theory is correct then one of the men he has fallen for is a theif. Then their is Trelain, well he is just an innocent bystander all the way around and has no clue what either of the two men he is in love with is up.

This book was beautifully written. Tara Lain made this trio into such a beautiful love story. I am so glad that I kept reading it because this was an amazing story and I would have completely missed out if I had not finished reading it and gave up after the first couple of chapters. And to elaborate, the first couple of chapters was not bad it was basically background layout to what was to come. I just could not see the full picture at the time.

4 Star Review for Discovering Dalton by Nicole Colville (AUTHOR INTERVIEW) #MM #Menage @NIKKIECOLVILLE

1Discovering Dalton E-Book Cover

Title: Discovering Dalton (Manchester Menage Collection #2)
Author Name: Nicole Colville
Publication Date & Length: August 28, 2015 – 382 pgs

Synopsis

At fifteen, Troy and Liam were fostered by the same family, and although they hated each other at first, they gradually became solid friends. As adults, the two foster brothers live together. Both experience tough times, each being a rock for the other, but their love had never been anything other than brotherly.

Until they both fall for the same guy, and things get… complicated.

Dalton is fresh out of a ten year marriage. Feeling lost, he concentrates on the only thing he can control—his body. Developing from a chubby, unfit police officer into a lean, mean inked one, Dalton has never looked better, but inside, he’s never felt worse. A relationship is far from his thoughts, and one with another man makes Dalton even more confused. He takes time to get to know Troy and Liam separately, but Manchester isn’t that big, and sparks fly when fate throws the three together.

Together, these three fight it out between them. Both Troy and Liam demand Dalton choose between them, but what if he didn’t have to choose? What if it could work between three?

The things in life we fight for are never the easiest, but they’re the ones worth holding onto forever.

FourStars

This is a fantastic addition to a great series. At the start of the story, Liam and Troy are a brilliant non-couple. Both are survivors of the care system, having weathered experiences that have left the former foster brothers with a fierce intimacy and an inability to form romantic attachments. When Dalton, a formerly straight policeman, gets a tattoo from Troy and personal training from Liam, he somehow starts dating both brothers.

I really enjoyed this slightly unusual m/m/m. I really enjoyed each of the pairs as a couple and I believed in Liam and Troy’s struggle to allow themselves to move forward from the brotherly relationship they had always insisted on.

This is a relationship between three alpha males and Colville makes all three men into complicated, flawed and completely loveable heroes. I really enjoyed the dynamics between the three men. There is a little bit too much talking and brooding for me at times. The heat in this story takes some time to build but the author makes up for lost time once her men are together.

And finally, I love the fact that Nicole Colville is a UK based writer because I am able to relax and stop translating Americanisms when I read her work. What a great series!

Excerpt

Liam chatted with Milo, but Dalton was too busy trying to stop hyperventilating and not staring at Liam’s body, seeing it as he last saw it—wet and tense, excited and looking sinful in that shower cubicle. Those types of thoughts weren’t going to help him calm down. Why oh why did that have to happen?

Blue leaned in, calming strokes running up and down Dalton’s back, sweetly spoken words whispered against his neck, and Dalton’s tension eased a little. “Is he an ex or something?”

“No,” Dalton choked out.

“Oh, I just thought there was some history there.” Blue’s glossy red lips curled into a smile.

“There’s no history of that kind.”

“But there is some to speak about?” Blue opened his green eyes wider and nodded. “It’s obvious. Maybe it’s time you resolved this tension between the two of you somehow.”

“What?” Dalton stiffened.

“Well, there’s obviously something happening between you two.”

“Yeah, but not what you think.”

Blue bit his lip while he thought. “Hmm, there’s a few different things going on from where I’m sitting.” He nudged his thigh against Dalton’s dick, and for the first time, he realised he was excited. “Or is this for me?”

Dalton truly had no idea. He was confused by his own body, not understanding why he was reacting at all. But it had happened in the showers while he watched Liam. Maybe it was those moments replaying in his mind which caused his cock to stiffen in his jeans.

Maybe it was the fact he had someone sitting on him, caring about him, someone with long legs and big heels, who was wearing make-up and who was confusing Dalton’s body by being more feminine than he was used to in a man. But then, Dalton was close to Samuel. He was beautiful and more feminine than Blue and this had never happened, and hadn’t Samuel been sitting on his knee earlier? Maybe he was losing his mind. Maybe he’d already lost it.

“I don’t… I really don’t know,” he whispered into Blue’s hair. “I just… I have to go.”

“Wait, sexy.” Blue pressed his body more into his, meeting his eyes, those black lashes coated thickly in mascara. “Don’t run off just yet. There’s no need.”

“I’m not gay,” Dalton rushed out as low as he could make his voice, darting his gaze to Liam, his tight V-necked vest showing off those big muscles, jeans encasing his firm arse, that bottle hanging in between his lips.

This time, when Blue rubbed his thigh over his cock, Dalton grabbed Blue’s slender calf running up his leg and just held it, not moving him away but not pulling him closer—just frozen, not knowing what to do.

“You don’t have to label yourself with anything, Dalton.” Blue took hold of his chin, fingertips gently caressing his skin and making Dalton shift his gaze from Liam back to him. “I think…” He eased closer still, his thigh now pressed against the rigid length encased in Dalton’s jeans. “If your body needs something, it lets you know. If your eyes find something pleasing, they look more. If your heart beats faster for someone, then you follow it. I’m not gay. I’m a person. A human being. That’s the label I want to be tagged with. Hashtag Human.” He clicked his fingers with a bright smile.

Dalton smiled through his fear and understood what Blue was saying. He just wasn’t ready to think the same way. “That’s nice.”

“It’s the truth. The truth is always a good thing. I always think our brains confuse us. They have all this bullshit ‘learned’ behaviour which they pick up over the years and it tells you to think one way, your body saying another. It takes time for those two to work together and come to some sort of an agreement, but we all get there eventually.

Just don’t pressure yourself, hon.” Blue leaned in, kissing the corner of his mouth, Dalton’s cock now crushed against his thigh. “Of course, I would like to think this is for me, but I know better.” Blue pulled back with a heavy sigh. “If you change your mind though…” He winked with a chuckle.

“Blue.” Samuel was beside them, looking between them both. “Dalton’s a bit…” He drifted off, worrying his bottom lip with his teeth, obviously not wanting to spill too much personal info about Dalton’s bad day and emotional state.

“Confused, sweetie?” Blue offered brightly.

“Yeah.” Samuel looked to the sky, then took hold of Blue’s hand. “You go get some air, Dalton.”

CoverTitle: Choices (Golden Collar #1)
Author Name & Publisher: Grace R. Duncan (Dreamspinner Press)

Synopsis

Born and raised a gypsy in the late eleventh century, Teman values freedom over everything. He and his best friend, Jasim, are thieves for hire—until one night they’re caught and their precious freedom is revoked. Given the choice between the dungeons or palace pleasure slavery, they become slaves, but Teman vows to escape someday.

Bathasar doesn’t want the throne. He supports his brother instead, which suits their sadistic father, Mukesh. When Teman, the handsome slave Bathasar has secretly been watching, saves his life, Bathasar requests a slave for the first time. Before long, Bathasar and Teman fall in love. But all is not well. One day Mukesh brutalizes Teman before the court, angering the empress of a neighboring nation. To appease her, he then offers her Jasim as a gift, and Teman decides to stay with Bathasar for now—despite the abuse he may suffer.

The peace doesn’t last. Mukesh plans to invade Jasim’s new country, and Bathasar must find a way to stop the destruction. But if he succeeds, he’ll ascend to the throne and have the power to grant Teman his liberty. Then Teman will surely leave him. What other choice could a gypsy make?

****this review contains spoilers****
Choices, by Grace R. Duncan, follows a gypsy slave Teman and his master, the amir (prince) Bathasar. There was quite a bit that I loved about this book. The dynamic between Teman and Bathasar was perfect, the way Bathasar tried his best to make them as equal as possible, while Teman struggled with his desire to submit to his master. On top of that, I was happy that Jasim found happiness in the end as well. Relationships aside, the political aspect of it, with the planned assassination was amazing and I loved that the malik ended up dying because he was just a terrible person anyway. The manner of his death, too, was incredibly fitting.
On the other hand, there were a few things that I didn’t particularly care for. Three, in particular. The first was Cyrus and Nadir’s relationship, and the way they fit in with everyone else. Poly relationships can work really well, but this one just didn’t…click. It wasn’t quite poly, but it wasn’t quite monogamous, either. While Cyrus and Nadir did love each other, it didn’t really feel like it all the time. At times, it felt like Nadir loved Jasim more than he loved Cyrus, and the same with Cyrus and Teman. That part left me more than a bit confused, and I wasn’t particularly fond of it. Additionally, the setting was a bit confusing. The book was supposed to be set in a fantasy world, with fantasy kingdoms, and yet there were pieces of our own world, like the mention of Beowulf. So that threw me just a bit. Thirdly, and this is completely my own personal taste, there was far too much focus on denial. The first few times was great, but eventually it became a bit repetitive, and I have to admit I skimmed over those parts toward the end.
Overall, though, this was a really good book, and I highly recommend it to people who love master/slave relationships, menage scenes, and orgasm denial. A bit of warning, there is a lot of violence in the book, done by the malik, but it isn’t condoned at all. So just take note of that.

Review

FiveStars

Theory of Love is an excellent science fiction anthology from Toquere Press. It features broken-down spaceships, near-future video games, and Jupiter’s moon Europa. There’s a couple of traces of hard science fiction, too, but this is mostly a sexual anthology.

I was quite pleased to see F/F in balance with the M/M stories, rather than just a token story. The cast is diverse and does include aliens and alien sex.

Highlights:

Meat Space (M/M), Lynn Townsend, is the sensual and tactile of adventure of someone raised within a video game and then “unplugged.” Her unique use of language brings the game and reality to life.

Beta Tester (M/M), Charles Payseur, is another video-game-induced story. I could read a whole anthology of those.

Captive (M/M), Asta Idonea, makes empires rise and fall with an encounter between an Earth military man and the leader of an opposing alien race. Again, evocative, yet serious, it gets to the core of today’s humanity like any good science fiction should.

Medic to the Hive Mind (F/F), Kayla Bashe, offers a butch heroine to drool over amidst action, adventure, and hard choices.

Shattered Space (F/F), Alain Bell, is my personal favorite. It’s just med-porn, reminiscent of any modern science fiction television show. Maybe it was the familiarity brought it to life, but Bell’s wrought tension, sympathy, and care make it great.

Torn Apart (M/M), DC Juris, is difficult to explain, but adorable. As is Trash and Treasures (M/M), M.D. Grimm.

Unexpected Dilemmas (F/F), Jessica Payseur, is a cozy way to wrap things up. The personal drama of a long-distance relationship dances through natural disasters and space travails.

Some stories are duds, at least for my tastes, but that’s to be expected. Overwhelmingly, Theory of Love is fantastic and filled with future worlds I’d love to see more of.

The individual stories can be purchased at $2.49, making a compilation of so many a great deal.

Five Stars

I was provided this book in exchange for an honest review by Inked Rainbow Reads. I was not compensated, coerced, or flattered into an opinion.

~C. E. Case

Excerpt

From Trash and Treasure by M.D. Grimm

Some of the coldness left Ronan’s eyes. He seemed confused again. Why did Tucker seem to confuse Ronan so much?

Then it happened. Ronan nodded. “Deal.”

Tucker barely stopped himself from gaping again. It worked? He was going to have sex? He was going to have sex! He didn’t let himself think about how long it had been since his last partner. It would only depress him. He knew what to do… mostly.

Tucker tossed the ball underhand to Ronan, who caught it with a startled expression.

“What?” Tucker said. “It’s not like you can go anywhere. Your ship’s caput and even if you tried to hack into my navigation system, you wouldn’t get far. My ma designed it and she was the best there was. Just letting you know in case you had a thought of bashing me over the head and commandeering my ride.”

Ronan looked insulted. “I would never do such a thing. I am not a thief or vagabond.”

“Then what are you?”

Ronan’s mouth pulled into a thin line. Tucker shrugged. “Fine. Keep your secrets. Come on, follow me. Let’s both take a well-needed shower.” A blush suddenly crept up his face. “I mean, a shower separately. Let’s take a shower—oh, never mind. Just come on.”

He turned his back on Ronan and called himself an idiot. He dearly hoped he wasn’t making a huge mistake. But he wouldn’t go back on it now. He really, really wanted to have sex.

Holly is PA to Miss Oliver, otherwise known as the’ Ice Queen’.  When Miss Oliver asks her to accompany her to a client dinner she is nervous but goes along with it.  How could she know that this night could change her life forever?  This is a very hot and sexy story of Miss Oliver, Megan, revealing to Holly that she really, really wants her and Holly realising that she wants the same thing.  It is a well written story that just gets better and better.  I listened to the audio version and found it totally absorbing.  Holly had not been attracted to women before but Megan just made it impossible for her to say no.  Once they got started Holly was never going to be able to turn back.  I think there could be more to these characters and I hope that Mish Daniels decides to write a longer story, letting the reader know how they develop.

~Kitty Kat

FourStars

This review is for the audio version of the book. I really like the story from an erotica standpoint. It’s great erotica and that last little start in the office on Monday morning was perfect. One big hole, as far as I’m concerned, is that Holly never really freaked about being attracted to a woman. I’m not saying every woman would, or that it should happen. But when you’ve gone for however long in your life without getting turned on by a woman, I think it would freak you out a bit more when it does happen. Especially if you then act on those feelings, instead of pushing them down where you don’t really have to question anything, which is probably more likely a reaction. However, the scenes are hot, and there is at least a nod towards Holly holding back a bit at the beginning, so that’s easy to get past. The narration is good, with a breathy quality that is perfect for an erotic story, or sex scenes in a longer novel. The only problem I had with the narration is that there wasn’t really a change of “tone” in the various scenes. I don’t mean that the narrator was monotone, so much as the feel of the sex scenes was pretty close to the feel of, say, the copy room. What that actually led to was me wondering if Holly was about to be bent over the copier at some point, which alas, will continue to only happen in my imagination. The other thing was that there wasn’t much distinction between Holly and Megan’s voices. Things for the narrator to think of for next time. Overall, the book was a hot little read that had me squirming a bit in the car. So, in other words, good.

Torn is such an appropriate name for this book. When I first started reading it I kept wondering what is the deal. Is he gay, bi-curious, straight, what? Then as I read a couple of the chapters it became clear to me, James was asking himself the same questions. He was questioning his attraction to his girlfriend at the time Amee and the fact that he was open to trying the new ideas that she wanted to try. I think that Amee played a huge role in James life and him figuring out what his true self was. Amee questioned what she liked as far as sexually and brought James along for the ride. Of course Amee being more open minded with herself then James was with himself…. She found her way quicker then he did. Along with doing that she realized that James was not only attracted to her but to also me and she did not have a problem with that. She encouraged James to find himself as far as sexually where men was concerned and figured out he would not do that if they stayed together. So she ended the relationship but not their friendship or her support. And she made it known that the door would always be open for him.

James had a harder time excepting himself then Amee did but he knew with it a doubt that he loved Amee but that he was in love with Joshua his former professor.

Joshua was another strong role in this book. He is gay but he too excepted that James was Bi and that yes they may be in a relationship with one another but that Amee gave James something that he could not and he was excepting and encouraging of it.

This book was written beautifully and took you through the confusion of trying figure out where one could be happy with who they are without feeling guilty for it. It is an amazing story. I can honestly imagine someone going through something like this in real life and worrying about being happy with who they are and excepted for who they are instead of what they want. E.B. Barrett did an amazing job on this book. Loved it from start to finish.

Elegant, flawless writing, exquisitely crafted characters and a completely filthy imagination make for an unforgettable story.  In fact, this might just be the most powerful erotic story I can remember reading.

On one level, this is a new adult story of self-discovery.  At college, James’ girlfriend pushes him beyond his comfort zone as she drags him along on her quest to find her kink.  After college, James pursues a crush on a former professor as he explores his own kinks in Amsterdam.

The struggle of a mathematical genius to find his place in the world is also the struggle of the bisexual young adult to discover his sexual identity while forming the relationships that will shape his life.   

I think my reaction to this story was so powerful because the author made me care fiercely for James, for Amee in all her guises, and for our good professor.  This is sexier because of the humanity the writer brings to her characters.  

I love the lack of judgement, the strong relationships that exist beyond the boundaries of heteronormative structures and I love the range of imaginative sexual encounters in this story.  I recommend this for readers who enjoy erotica but find themselves unmoved by formulaic BDSM stories full of recycled characters and scenarios.  This is different and I absolutely loved it.

This book in my opinion is awesome! The author really hit on what I think a lot of our younger generation questions about themselves. I think it’s only natural to question which sex you’re attracted to. I also think it’s only natural to experiment when you’re young.

James and Amee do that. Amee really pushes James to go outside his box. As the 2 lovers experiment, Amee discovers she is a Dominatrix and James hasn’t lost the love he felt for his professor, Joseph.

The 2 part ways so Amee can pursue her dominant side and James can try to find what/who makes him happy. We are taken on a journey between his past and present self as James discovers who he is and how to accept himself for loving the people he loves.

The story is well written and keeps the reader engaged to the end. I had some serious Aha moments myself while reading this story. I love when I can read a book and it makes me question myself or something I believe about myself. That’s great.

This was written more like a nonfiction memoir than a fictional story to me, but that’s what made it so excellent to me. It was raw and real and sexy and honest.
James is trying to figure out who he is and what to do about the feelings he has. I have to say that I loved the erotic encounters that he has while he is also growing and learning what he wants and needs. There is a dual love story we see, but I have to say I preferred the one with Joshua over Amee. I felt like we missed out on some of the love that was there between James and Amee because she was so focused on finding herself. However, I did feel that there was something special between them, but the emotional connection and feelings really shown through for James and Joshua.
This was an excellent story about a man discovering himself and acknowledging that he was bisexual, not gay and hiding, not straight hetero, but somewhere between and being okay with that.

Honestly, this short story was hot!  It was a page out of a fantasy – go to a bar, trolling, pick up the hottest guy there.  The ultimate role play fantasy of a couple.

Not only is their chemistry great, but then you have the added intrigue of the paranormal coming with the fantasy.

It’s SUPER short, but full of steam.

This series just keeps getting better and better. I would still classify it as a dark erotic read. But I have to say that I am really loving the series.

There is so many twist and turns that you do not know what is coming from one paragraph to the next. Then there are more and mor surprises every time you turn around. Devon McCormack definitely knows how to bring mystery, intrigue, and suspense to his books

This book in particular has ex’s that are out for revenge, evil beings turning against there bosses, enemies becoming lovers, friends that fight a good fight but do not survive, those that we thought could not possibly make it out alive being rescued by the one they love, and those that should never become allies becoming so much more.

With each page you think you finally have it figured out only to be thrown for another loop and discover that things are not what they seem to be and neither are the people.

Such a fascinating read that I could not put it down and I cannot wait for the next book in series. So please hurry with the next book Devon cause I am curious to see what happens next and what you come up with.

Triggers: Extreme sex (blood involved), tentacles, breath play, sadistic sword sex (just a little) and it’s fairly violent.
I was given this book for an honest review by Inked Rainbow Reads.

This second installment has more action involved – more mystery and the characters seem to be more involved with the plot of finding the secret weapon – trying to defend the world.  While it’s not that much different than the first book, there is still hot, winged, forceful sex, but the characters seem to develop more of a relationship – you get to see their reasons behind their actions.

The characters think more in this story – it’s more dialogue and more figuring out how to save the world.  I will admit that despite my reservations from the first story, this one did keep my attention a little more because there seems to be many more story lines going on.  Finding a love, developing relationship, searching for a child, hiding from the enemy – all of these intermingle throughout and create this almost epic story.

Overall, I enjoyed this story a little more than the first and it definitely left me wanting to know what happens next, but I was also disappointed too – and still, at certain points of the story was trying to figure out who was who, their past relationships and how everything and everyone fit together.
