TWO 4 Stars for Rock Rod Studios Presents: Alex on Top by Emory Vargas #MM #Romance

1.5

Title: Rock Rod Studios Presents: Alex on Top (Rock Rod #3)
Author Name: Emory Vargas
Publication Date & Length: September 13, 2015 – 44 pgs

Synopsis

College student Alex’s crush on gorgeous fetish star Peter has reached epic proportions. And for some reason Peter likes him back. But the more their friendship becomes a romance, the more Peter’s insecurities and fears rise to the surface.

Alex’s next performance for the indie porn studio is the last thing he expected to do. It was one thing to get nailed by a sex machine. That was like getting the best massage ever. In his butt. It’s another thing entirely to top his real live brand new boyfriend for the first time on camera. Especially when Alex isn’t sure he understands Peter’s deep need to submit—or the secrets Peter holds close to his heart.

Screwing this up could mean losing Peter for good. Will this be the start of a career in porn or the end of the best thing Alex has ever had?

Alex on Top is the conclusion to the Rock Rod Studios trilogy.

This is the 3rd instalment I have devoured in the Rock Rod Studios, with Alex and Peter. I recommend reading the first two: Alex Undone and Opening Alex.

This is another hot, fast-paced story that gets under your skin. I love the goofiness that both characters express. Its not too serious but serious when it should be.

Hot, Hot, Hot.

This was another quick, sexy installment of this series. I liked that we got to see more of the connection between the men in this one than we really did in the other ones.
There was a two scenes for the Rock Rod studio and they were hot.
In the end even though I felt more for the characters, I felt like there was just something missing to make this an excellent story overall. It’s very light hearted and playful for the most part. A good story with a lot of super sexy scenes, but not a whole lot to grab the reader and make it a must read story.

I think I read this whole book through tears.  First of all I knew the series was ending and second it was a tear jerker in places!

Loved this series, even though they were quick to read, Sibley Jackson just pulled you into their lives. If I could I would have given this series more than 5 stars I would have, all the books were so entertaining and it was so easy to fall in love with these guys.

From the Ashes was the perfect conclusion.  Sibley Jackson didn’t leave you hanging at the end, she gave a perfect ending and of course as all the rest of the books went, the sex was HOT!

This is one author I will follow, I have enjoyed her writing through several series and look forward to more from her.

Happy ever after. Three little words shouldn’t have to be so difficult.

As they try to build a life together, the pressure of being everything and everyone in Cody’s narrowed world presses down on Andy. In addition, all of Andy’s career plans are going up in smoke—and Cody holds himself responsible. Lost dreams and lost family could easily prove to be too much.

Trust. Patience. Faith. Forgiveness. Will the two men find enough of each to walk through fire and come out still holding hands? If so, they’ll have truly earned their happy ever after.

If not, both men will bear the scars of a beautiful love gone horribly wrong.

I was given this in return for an honest review by Inked Rainbow Reads.
This book started out with  bang. WOW. Guess his dad reacted just like they figured he would.
Throughout the book I loved how Andy makes Cody feel truly loved. You have to just feel truly bad for Cody and what he went through.

A truly unbelievable ending to this book.  It started out shocking me and ended the same. These books may be short and quick to read but they sure throw a punch, in the writing.  I know the last book is going to be amazing.

5 Stars for Caught on Camera: Part Four by Lily Harlem – #MM #HOT #MustRead #Erotic @Totally_Bound @lily_harlem

1.3

Title: Caught on Camera: Part Four (Caught on Camera #4)
Author Name: Lily Harlem
Publication Date: February 6, 2015

Synopsis

A bag of surprise props brings new spice to Reece’s life, but how does he feel about so many ‘firsts’ in public?

The filming of porn movie Slippery Slots is reaching its grand climax. Reece has stretched himself in the role of Timothy and given over to lust and desire in front of the camera many times. But when a host of new toys, including a flogger, are delivered as props for the final scene, he finds himself wondering if he’s hit the limits of his sexual, on-screen capabilities.

He must go to Odin’s Raven, a BDSM club in the backstreets of Las Vegas, and be strung up on a cross, naked for all to see. Now instead of a faceless audience, real people will be there to watch him flogged, whipped and buggered. He has to hold in his cries and gasps as he learns the beauty of pain mixing with pleasure. Can he do it? Will pain be pleasurable?

There is only one man he trusts for the job. One person who knows what Reece wants and needs and how far he can be pushed. That person is Cade, the man Reece is falling for with every beat of his heart.

But will the beating finish Reece off or send him to that foggy, mindless sub-space of ecstasy? Only time will tell and everyone will be witness to the result. He has no place to hide.

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of BDSM.

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

Can’t say I’m surprised that this was another amazing installment of Cade and Reece’s story. Short but boiling hot!!! These men are so darn sexy even when they are filming. I love watching their characters develop feelings and emotions for each other. Although it is a bit of insta love, it totally works for them.
This time we are gifted with a BDSM scene, oh and maybe a bit of practice before hand 😉 There was a bit where I was confused because there was a few English slangs that I as an American don’t know, but it wasn’t too hard to get past as it was earlier on.
Can’t wait for the next part!! Can’t wait to see what these men get into next!!

TWO 4 Star Reviews for The BlueBird and The Devil by Zac Blue – @mugwumppress #FF #Bi #bisexual #Erotic #Short

The BlueBird and the Devil

Title: The Bluebird and the Devil
Author Name: Zac Blue
Publication Date & Length: October 2, 2014 – 44pgs

Synopsis

Prior to the events of Jane Eyre, Grace Poole is drawn into the mystery surrounding her employer’s marriage as she becomes sexually entangled with both the dark, enigmatic Mr. Rochester and his virgin wife.

Nineteen-year-old Grace Poole knows the unspoken rules of Victorian society.

It is the right of the nobility to act as their desires dictate, a luxury denied to those who serve them. Grace, however, refuses to be bound by her station; and from the moment she arrives at Thornfield Hall, the bisexual maid seduces footmen and maids alike even as she wonders when the elusive Mr. Rochester will return home and demand from her that which all masters invariably do.

Bertha Rochester is the dark, voluptuous and shockingly innocent mistress of Thornfield.

Under the orders of her absent husband, she is kept pampered and isolated in her third floor rooms. The servants whisper about the young mistress who, despite her married status, remains a virgin.

The temptation of a virgin mistress is one which Grace cannot resist, yet love is an indulgence she can ill afford.

She attempts to master her feelings as she initiates Bertha into her world of wanton, dark desire. Unwilling to allow love to make her weak, Grace continues her seduction of the household’s servants, with no regard for Victorian propriety, as part of her plan to free both women from the tyranny of the absent master of Thornfield. Her scheme culminates in a decadent bisexual orgy where several of Thornfield’s male servants make a cuckold of the still-absent Mr. Rochester.

The full ramifications of that night, however, will not be felt until Rochester returns to Thornfield.

AuthorInterview

  • Can you describe in detail what your writing environment is like?

My writing environment is my mind. Oh wait, stop raising eyebrows and rolling eyes! I work so much in my head before I write that everything is built there, including my plush Victorian library with a roaring blood red hearth, high wing backed chairs and a large writing desk, with quills and wells brimming with red ink.

  • Is there one of your characters that you relate to (from any of your works)? Why?

I brood like Mr. Rochester and fuck like Grace Poole. Of course they are not ‘my’ characters as such, but in my books I control them and mutate them and pull them from Bronte’s world and put them in dark, sexy places and watch them play.

  •  If you couldn’t be an author, what would you do instead?

Wow, that is a tough one. Writing is essential to my existence. I’d be pretty much lost, wandering the moors for my lost love…oh wait, wrong Bronte.

  •  Is there anything that you learned during the writing process that you wish you had known before hand?

Every time I write I learn something and sometimes you find dead ends in your work and have to unpick the stitches and start again, but that dead end is now signposted and I won’t travel that road again, so no journey is ever wasted.

  • Is there anything that you wish you could change about your book now that it is out?

I am lucky to have a brilliant editor who worked with me on the book and has a meticulous eye for detail and I knew going in how the Thornfield trilogy would progress so I can honestly say that I am 100 percent happy with The Bluebird and the Devil.

  • How do you come up with new ideas for your story?

I read between the lines of literary classics and see the seamy side and document the sin.

  •  What’s next for you as a writer?

Part two of the Thornfield trilogy The Mistress of Thornfield will be out hopefully next month. It continues Grace’s story, with the arrival of a mysterious gypsy, the descent of Mrs. Rochester into cruel vicious madness and lots of hot sex!

  • Where do you live? Do you think this influences how or what you write?

In the countryside. It is very isolated and at night I walk and plan my writing for the next day, I think the dark desolation is perfect for the twisted tales of Thornfield.

  •  What is your favorite genre outside of the one you write in? Why?

I love the literary classics that inspire my writing. I have read them since I was a child and now they are like blueprints helping me to unlock my own little universes within them of hidden desires and sexual longing.

  • Do you have any vices? Shoes, coffee, shopping…etc?

My whole life is one big vice.

Review

FourStars

I’m going to have to stop saying “I don’t read [X genre]” because every time I say that, I read something and get surprised by how much I enjoy it.

This is essentially pure literary erotica–there’s not really much of a plot. I love all things Jane Eyre, so I figured I’d take a chance despite not being a fan of plotless erotica. This was a fun, short read.

The best way I can think to describe it is Masterpiece Theater meets Free Internet Porn. It had all the best elements of both–the old-fashioned literary setting and the hot, delicious, way over-the-top sex. If you want an erotically charged book companion on a lazy Saturday, this is a good choice.

My only complaint was the first sex scene. It’s outright rape, and I dislike when writers get lazy and use rape as a lead-in to lust/love. There are far better ways to accomplish the same thing. In fact, this was set up in a way that it could have been completely consensual–the rape was unnecessary. For me, that makes this book drop an entire star rating.

I’m looking forward to the continuation of the series.

I give it 4 stars.

This was a quick and easy read. There isn’t much story line there, it’s basically PWP  (Plot? What Plot?) if you’re from the fanfiction world, which is exactly how this reads. Really good fanfiction.

This story is erotica, short, simple, sweet, hot and heavy. It stems from the Jane Eyre and is a bisexual piece. Two reasons why I picked it up. I was not disappointed. I would have preferred more plot, mostly because I prefer erotic romance over erotica, but this piece definitely satisfied.

There were times when I felt drawn out of the book. There’s an abundance of wetness and leaking and being wet through clothes that, honestly, just doesn’t every happen or get anywhere near where it does in this piece in real life. There’s also an obsession with boobs and their size and perkiness that isn’t seen from most POVs of women–because again, I find it unrealistic.

However, this story did draw me in. I was curious what Grace’s plans were, though I think that could have been laid out (pun intended) in the piece better. She seemed to go from wanting sex with everyone and having it more than a paid prostitute, to the transverse of being in love and willing to kill for it without transition.

All in all, this book and books like it, should not be read for the plot. They’re read for the sex and the “banging” as Mugwump Press so wants. It is a quick, fast, sexy read, and I really can’t wait for the next two installments.

4 stars

Excerpt

Bertha lowered her head, but her eyes never left Grace’s. She saw the love and the desire; it made her even more certain of her actions.

“He says I can never be touched in that way. That I am evil and it will ignite dark demons inside me.” Bertha’s head was still lowered.

Grace took her face in her hands and raised it up and pulled it close to hers. “He is the evil one, my sweet little thing. He denies you what is your right as a woman and a wife, so we will take his rights and that will just be the start of it.”

Bertha was trembling, her eyes wide and afraid. “What are you going to do? Oh Grace, he is the master; he is a man. We are just women.”

“He shall be a cuckold, not a man, and I shall show him who is the master of Thornfield.”

Publisher’s Note: The Bluebird and the Devil is a 12,000 word Victorian erotic short. Book one of three in a trilogy. Contains explicit heterosexual and lesbian sex as well as an orgy involving bisexual women and straight men. A dark Gothic tale with elements of sexual violence, this is not Charlotte Brontë’s Mr. Rochester

AuthorBio

Zachary Bluebird III lives in the burnt out ruin of his imagination after his crazy ex-wife tried to set it on fire. She may still be running round on the third floor of his psyche somewhere. He writes erotica with a literary twist that sometimes gets very twisted. He is a slave to the Mugwump ethos of banging it hard. He has lots of headaches and sore thumbs, but wouldn’t have it any other way.
