ARC Review: Coveted By Alannah Lynne
Pandora’s Playground, Book 1
She’s his heaven and his hell…
Muriel Stewart has spent the past year grieving the loss of her husband. Now that time has passed, her inner submissive demands Muriel find a new relationship to fulfill her need to love and serve. But there’s only one man who makes Muriel yearn for the intimate Dom/submissive connection the way her husband did, and that’s his best friend, Mathew Galinda … a man who can barely tolerate being in her presence.
Matthew Galinda buried his own heart and needs the day Muriel Stewart married his best friend and business partner. He’s spent the last eleven years keeping Muriel at a distance, tortured by his love for a woman he could never have, and filled with shame for coveting what wasn’t and would never be his. Not even his best friend’s unexpected death could change that fact. Until Muriel decides she’s ready for a new Dom and she wants Matthew to fill that role.
Having Muriel in his life is all Mathew has ever wanted. She’s his heaven and his hell, and could be his salvation if he can get beyond his past, his shame, and the guilt he feels for not having saved Ian’s life.
Sexy and Sensual. Pandora’s Playground awakens passion.
Loss and longing have been plaguing Muriel since the passing of her husband nearly a year ago. Not only losing her husband but her bonded Dom. Giving in to loneliness and need Muriel puts her anxiety and fear to the side and accepts an invitation to reopen a part of who she was.
Matthew has been in love with his best friends woman the moment he laid eyes on her. Never acting, always longing. When Ian passed away about a year ago, he’s guard dropped for a moment and the want increased. When a mutual friend includes Mathew in a plan to bring Muriel back to her world, it flight or fight for everything he’s ever wanted and needed.
Alannah Lynne has spared no emotions from the sensual and erotic story of Coveted. Overcoming loss and learning to move on is one of the greatest challenges in life. Muriel and Matthew have a unique situation that unfold before them. Learning to let go, overcome the grief, putting the fear aside and giving into yourself makes for some steamy romance. A tastefully kinky story with a lot of heart.

Review: The King by Tiffany Reisz
The Orignal Sinners Book 6, The White Years Book 2
Sinfully erotic, dark and decadent. The king will consume you.
Kingsley Edge is a man that hold no fear when it comes to his sexual exploitation. A self proclaimed pervert, there is no sexual kink that is too much for him. The line of pleasure and pain for Kingsley twists, crossed, braided and broken. From the man for built the best BDSM dungeon I would expect nothing less. What I was surprised to find was the depth of intelligence and emotions within Kingsley. A worldly man that know he can have and get whatever he want. Kingsley is the most diverse man of every facet of the BDSM world that I have ever read. He may also have the kindest heart.
The King is my first indulgence of Ms. Reisz’s writing. I say indulgence because The King tempts and teases you. Giving the reader a taste of thrill and danger, while hanging to the edge, over come with lustful pain and pleasure. All while consuming you page by page and leaving you smile in bliss at the end. An overpowering read of love, loss and the sacrifices and that one is willing to go to for pleasure.
ARC Review: At His Pleasure-Addie Learns The Ropes by Emme Salt
At His Pleasure- Addie Learns The Ropes
Eighteen-year-old Adeline Curtis lands an internship with the mysterious and powerful Jon Banks. Night and day, Addie struggles to fulfill his overwhelming demands.
But when the innocent intern discovers a naughty bondage video on her boss’s office computer, Addie can hardly believe what she’s seeing: beautiful young women being tied and teased by older men.
She realizes that Mr. Banks is hellbent on teaching his seductive intern the rules of love and submission.
When Addie’s ordered by her dominating boss to accompany him on a business trip, she suspects that he has more in mind for her sexy young body than he’ll admit. Mr. Banks introduces Addie to strange new pleasures…all designed to tie her closer to him.
But when she discovers the devastating secret behind why she landed the coveted internship in the first place, she’s faced with an impossible choice.
Torn between her family and the man she loves, will Addie stay with the man she’s been trained to obey?
Holy hottness! This ones a scorcher.
Addie may be young but she is far from innocent. Boy can this girl push the envelope so to speak. Sexy and a bit mischievous, she is not one to take things lying down.
Mr. Banks is a man of wealth and power. Unlike your typical billionaire, Mr. Banks truly has a kind heart even if he has a thing for domination and kink.
The two of them together we’re like a current that can’t be stopped. A consuming story with a good plot that leaves you wanting more. The story was hot beyond belief. Straight up erotica and it was damn good. You will laugh while breaking out your fan to cool down from this sinfully delightful story.
Review: Long Hard Ride
Long Hard Ride
Rough Riders series, Book 1
Channing Kinkaid itches for a wild western adventure with an untamed man. Enter Colby McKay, bull rider, saddle bronc buster and calf roper. He knows he’s found a woman who’s up to the challenge of cutting loose. Intrigued by Channing’s bold proposition to “horse around” on the road, Colby proposes sexual escapades not only in his bed, but in those of his two rodeo traveling partners. Can Channing give up total control? Especially when not all is as it seems with the sexy trio?
I want to start out this review by saying this is the first Cowboy book I have ever read. They are not my cup of tea. I am one of those girls that likes those really bad boys, and thats not the way I saw cowboys. I was given the opportunity to read Ms. James book. I was very skeptical as to whether or not I would enjoy this type of book. When I finish I was more than surprised at the enjoyment that I got from Long Hard Ride!
Colby and Channing are in the same boat in two different worlds. Defying what both their parents want of them. Not ready to settle down and take on the ranch Colby continues on the rodeo circuit to claim the spot of number one ring and taking all the women he can find. Sexy and demanding, Colby caught me quick with his sweet smile and devil of tongue.
Channing is a prim and proper girl with an underlying naughty streak waiting to burst out. Embarking in a wild sexcapade that would leave any woman’s toes curled, Channing might as well been hit by a bull. Raw sexy and commanding men leave her more that lusting. More like down right wanting.
Who knew Cowboys were dirty talking naughty men. Talk about a book being sexy, and erotic, you will turn red just from reading. Ms. James held no bars in this book, including mild BDSM, ménage and a super hot m/m scene. And lots of naughty men. Woot! Formost this is an erotic story and sex content is high. Ms. James also gives a colorful story and deep, heartwarming characters that kept this reader turning the pages.
Long Hard Ride was truly a surprise read for me. I never would have that I would have liked let alone love a cowboy book. Ms. James layed this erotic tale with personality, charm, and passion. Hot and sweet! Ms. James made me like a cowboy book. That something I never thought could happen. Major props to you, Ms. James.
Through My Window by Jayne Rylon
Red Light series Book 1
Through my window, a sea of strangers swirl and retreat like waves in an ocean of humanity. I brush my hair, fix my makeup and flip on the glaring red light in my booth before turning to face my audience on the other side of the glass.
For Star, this is just another night on the job, though no two are ever alike. She loves her career and excels at bringing her customers pleasure, relief or intimacy. Adaptable and perceptive, she becomes many things in the course of one evening–whore, lover, nurse, psychologist and friend. But above all, she’s still a woman. And her customers change her with every encounter. Through her window, she observes the world and enhances it when it spills into her realm.
Don’t just look in the window, step through it. Star, a sex worker in the red light district of Amsterdam, is unlike any woman I have read. She has the confidence and worldliness that as a woman I wish that I possessed. She is proud of who and what she is in a world that many look down upon.
A prostitute by profession, but I didn’t see her as a whore. Star had a way of looking at things differently. She has the ability to read people and see past the surface. To see to their needs almost like a sixth sense. The woman was truly mind blowing in more ways than one.
A quick read that more than draws you in. Sexy, erotic and exotic, Jayne Rylon’s Through My Window is a very unique story filled with pride, unexpected passion and a depth I did not expect. You will just have to read and see it from the other side of the window for yourself.
I will be quickly one-clicking the remaining books in the series.
