Hawk, the muscled, tatted, badass Vice President of the Insurgents Motorcycle Club, sees women as bed warmers, nothing more. He never stays with the same woman, and although there are plenty of women who want to be his old lady, he wants none of that.

He doesn’t date.
He doesn’t let chicks ride on the back of his bike.
He doesn’t fall in love.

And that suits him just fine until he meets her whose eyes light a fire in him. Problem is she’s not so easy to get into his bed. Hawk wants her. And when Hawk wants something he takes it.

Cara Minelli doesn’t want to go to the biker bar, but her friend talks her into it. Swearing off men since she caught her fiancé cheating on her right before her wedding, she has buried herself in her career not wanting a man in her life. Until she sees him. He is sexy, rough, crude, and oh so very wrong for her. So why can’t she stop thinking of all the nasty things he’ll do to her if she relents and lets him in her bed?

Then a vicious killer who has been strangling women in the area focuses on Cara. Police think bikers are involved. Can Cara set aside her trust issues and let Hawk into her life?

Hawk sees it as his job to protect what is his…and Cara is very much his even if she doesn’t know it yet. Cara keeps her heart guarded, but when danger comes calling, their lives collide. Hawk will stop at nothing to keep Cara safe and make her “Property of Hawk”.

Review

Hawk is the VP of the Insurgents MC. He’s everything you’d expect from a VP. He’s intense, sexy dangerous and a slut. He likes women and sex. A lot. He has a filthy mouth, which as I’ve said before, I love. He sees a curvy woman in a bar and knows he has to have her.

Cara is an attorney. She’s not like the rest of her family. She’s a defense attorney and her family is in corporate law. She even has a cousin that’s a judge. So needless to say, they don’t approve of Cara’s field of law that she practices. Despite running into hot ass biker man and liking what she saw, she puts him out of her mind. When that same biker shows up at her office asking for her help, she starts down a path of hot sex, danger and running for her life.

I really liked this one. The suspense of who done it was good. A little predictable with the result but still good. This was my first book by this author but it won’t be my last.

Space can be a lonely place, especially when you’re stationed by yourself on the distant planet Zorbus. In fact, Lance isn’t quite sure that can last the whole year before his shuttle pod arrives, but when a mysterious visitor appears at Lance’s terraforming station, he quickly realizes that he might not be so alone after all.

Soon enough, Lance becomes close with this mysterious new astronaut, a velociraptor. Together, they form an unlikely duo, which quickly begins to cross the boundaries of friendship into something much, much more sensual.

It’s not gay if it’s a man and a dinosaur, is it?

This erotic tale is 4,100 words of sizzling human on gay dinosaur action, including anal, blowjobs, rough sex, and space raptor love.

Review

A touch late, but here’s the latest for TingleFest 2016!

Nice graphic, eh?

Ah, I actually remember reading this for research when I was getting ready to launch my own erotica career! This, among many other erotica shorts (which I honestly don’t remember–this was the only memorable one), helped to shape my writing. Now, I found out I can’t do humor erotica like Dr. Chuck Tingle. There’s simply no one but the master. As one might argue Virginia Wade started the monster erotica trend (she’s certainly the most famous of the monster erotica indie authors), Chuck Tingle has taken that and ran with it. With scissors. And an eternal love for gay ass.

We start out with a nameless astronaut on Outpost Zorbus. I say nameless because he doesn’t have a name for quite a while. It actually starts out with two astronauts (Pike being the other one) talking and going about their business, rather normally. You would actually think they would end up being lovers, but no! Not in a Tingleverse book. Pike is actually going home, leaving our nameless astronaut here by himself.

Not for long! As he’s outside, he sees another astronaut! Shocked and surprised, when our nameless astronaut goes back to his base, he hears a knocking on the hatch door! Here, we finally learn our astronaut’s name is Lance Tanner as he lets the other astronaut in… only to find out he is a velociraptor!

The raptor’s name is Orion. Over the next few days they start to hang out and get to know each other. It’s actually quite sweet to read. The subject of sex comes up, and Orion admits he’s never had sex with a human for fear of crushing a human female. Lance brings up the subject of gay sex… and Orion agrees, thinking he “might be into that”. This leads to the best line in the book:

“I mean, it’s not gay if it’s a dude raptor and a dude human, right?” I ask.

What follows is actually a pretty standard sex scene… other than one partner is a raptor. It’s weird reading an early Chuck Tingle book because it’s actually.. not so WTF and more just hot dino sex. I’m of the opinion one doesn’t read Chuck Tingle for the erotica, but for the humor. However, this is when the author was still finding his feet. As it is, it’s a solid introduction to the Tingleverse, a sweet and somewhat hot gay dino/dude love scene, and a great parallel to Chuck’s later works which go off the chart crazy. I would give this 7 “Totally Not Gay” Astronauts out of 10.

Review~The Beast of Clan Kincaid by Lily Blackwood

Reviewed by Kay the Snitch Bitch

They call him the Beast—a hardened mercenary whose heart seems as cold as his icy blue gaze. They do not know his true name: Niall Braewick, son of the Laird of Kincaid. It has been years since he escaped into the forest the night his father was murdered. Now he has returned, ablaze with a vengeful hunger. He will gain the MacClaren chief’s trust, gather his clan, and take back his lands. And take the MacClaren’s daughter as well…

Though he pulled her from the river, saving her life, Elspeth has been warned to keep her distance from her father’s hired warrior. He is a barbarian—a shame, as he is far more compelling than the lechers and fools competing for her dowry. Little does she know that, like the castle itself, she is a prize Niall intends to claim…but will he extract blood for blood and possess what is his, or will his enemy’s beautiful, innocent daughter tempt him to forsake his dream of conquest?

Review

Niall Braewick is a man on a mission and nothing will deter him. He is the heir to a fallen clan. His parents murdered, his two brothers, missing or dead. He has plotted his revenge carefully. He’s formed his own army to take back what was his. Since his youth, he’s honed his skills as a fighter, lived as a pauper and became the warrior known as the Beast.

Elspeth MacClaren is the eldest daughter of the Laird now ruling Niall’s former lands. She knows of the Kincaids but not truly how they lost their rule. She’s ready to marry, as she knows she has to. She’s responsible to make a good match to strengthen her clan. When she sees her father’s hired sword, a spark goes off. She’s drawn to him despite knowing it can lead nowhere.

This was a good book to start a new Scottish Highlander romance series. I enjoyed it. I loved the main characters, the suspense elements and the sex was good. It was almost perfect. I hated Elspeth’s stepmother. Despite her change of heart toward the end of the book, she was beyond redemption to me. I look forward to the next book in the series.

Nate:

It’s nearly impossible to be surrounded by love but not understand it. My parents, my sister, and just about everyone around us has no trouble accepting that love. To give your trust to someone else and believe they would die before hurting you. I’ve witnessed it—I’ve seen the power of it—but I’ve also seen the pain. Because for me, I’ve only loved someone I could never have, and my biggest fear is that by giving her my love, all I would do is ruin her. I should have tried harder, but I’m not sure I can because I only feel complete when I’m with her.

Emberlyn:

The only time I feel like I belong is when he’s near. His infectious smile warms me straight to my bones. Any insecurities I have vanish with just a wink from him. A sliver of his attention makes me feel invincible. But all it took was one drunken night of truths for me to lose everything I had begun to crave. Now, I’m not sure how to move on because I only feel complete when I’m with him.

He said I was too young. I said he was perfect. He said our families wouldn’t understand. I said we could weather any storm. He said he would ruin me. And he was right.

Review

Nate Reid is a child of one of the Corps Security founders. He’s an alpha male like his father. He’s loyal to his family, both immediate and extended, but doesn’t want to be involved in the security business. He wants to make his own way in life. He’s saved up money and is about to open his business, a hip new night club.

Emberlyn Locke is also a child of one of the Corps Security founders. She’s grown up with Nate and has loved him almost that long. When an eighteen year old Eberlyn tells Nate how she feels about him, Nate rebuffs her and Emberlyn cuts him out of her life. Nate turned her away because he was young and a punk. That decision has haunted him ever since.

Good suspense, laugh out loud moments, and some hot sex. Oddly enough, the sex is where the book feel apart for me. Nate was a little too much of a DOM for me. It creeped me out and made me feel differently about the book.

Pibbles Pooch is a young, hotshot journalist with Bowling Bones Magazine, who’s just started his week on the presidential campaign trail with the notorious billionaire, Domald Tromp.

But things immediately get off to a rocky start when Domald tells another journalist that he’s fired, and then proceeds to throw him off of the plane mid-flight. Not surprisingly, the candidate’s approval ratings go through the roof.

Soon enough, things are going from bad to worse when Pibbles receives some top secret information about the real Domald Tromp, a man who may or may not actually be the Loch Ness Monster, and who may or may not be craving a lustful encounter within Pibbles’ tight butthole.

This erotic tale is 5,000 words of sizzling human on gay politican action, including anal, blowjobs, rough sex, and Domald Loch Ness Tromps love.

Review

This is the second in my TINGLEFEST 2016 series! Here, let me whip out the graphic again.

There! TingleFest 2016 continues with President Domald Loch Ness Tromp Pounds America’s Butt, which is very topical! This is obviously a stand in for a presidential candidate… I don’t think I need to say which one. If I do, then you really need to turn on a television or a computer.

We start out with Pibbles Pooch, a small up and coming journalist for a small paper who observes that all of the journalists around him are both war weary, and like sharks at the same time. The analogy is very apt. He writes that everyone around him is jaded, but that any small action by either candidate during the election season is apt to send them into a tizzy of activity. This, I think, is a remarkably astute observation on Dr. Tingle’s part. It does seem that our journalists are locked into this sort of activity in the name of ratings, and pushing particular agendas for their paper and/or television station.

Anyway, as they fly with Domald Tromp on his HUGE jet plane (Keith, is that you?), he starts taking questions… and I have to say, Dr. Tingle caught that certain political candidate’s words and tone perfectly. It was eerie reading it. Domald goes on to say several things, and while I rarely quote from books, I have to quote this:

“Speaking of immigration, I was wondering if you had anything you’d like to say about the dinosaurs who are upset about your racist comments regarding them crossing the border into America,” Barno suddenly interjects.

“Well, first of all I was talking about illegal dinosaurs, not legal dinosaurs,” Tromp explains. “If you were paying attention you’d know that, but you know what? I think you’re kind of a third rate journalist for asking that question. That’s what I think.”

Domald Tromp says he can do anything. To prove it, he fires Barno on the spot and has the stewardesses throw him out of the plane.

Immediately, Barno starts to struggle against the stewardesses, but it is already too late. There is a wild yell as my friend is thrown from the airplane, whipping out into the vast blue sky and then plummeting down through the clouds behind us as he tumbles end over end.

The door slams shut, leaving the room in total silence.

“That’s what I think of lightweight journalists. I think that’s fair,” says Domald Tromp.

Yup. Wow. Damn. It would be funny if I couldn’t see that happening with crystal clear clarity in our world and not just the Tingleverse.

Shaken up, our young journalist tries to relax while at the rally (where Domald promises everyone in America a steak dinner), but Barno’s boss calls him saying he’s got some revealing information on Domald Tromp! Alone in his room on the jet plane, our young journalist waits for the email and it’s a doozy… Domald Tromp was born not in America, but in Scotland and it turns out his name is Domald Loch Ness Tromp! AND he’s a dinosaur! Not JUST a dinosaur but the Loch Ness monster! Other than his Scotland roots, I’m just not sure why he hides the fact he’s a dinosaur. He could be the first dinosaur president of the United States!

I also imagine this is what he looks like:

As soon as Pibbles gets the email, he’s called into Domald’s office. There, he can see it. Finally he can see it! And once he does, he’s possessed by a strange gay lust (Pibbles’ words!) for the Jurassic beast. Domald, smitten with Pibbles’ good looks, tells Pibbles his plan for America.

“I’m going to tell it like it is,” the creature explains, “because that’s just the way I do thing. I love America, I really do. In fact, I love America so much that I want to pound it in the butt.”

“In the butt?” I ask.

“Yes,” Domald nods, “and if I’m going to start the process of pounding America in the butt, I’d like to start with you. With your beautiful, muscular rump.”

Does that pounding come with the steak dinner he promised? Or is it BECAUSE of the steak dinner he feels the need to pound America in the butt?

After that, of course, is the sexy part, which is really hysterical to read. I couldn’t do it justice here, but I highly recommend it. Afterwards, we find out the American people voted against him. I imagine it was kind of like this:

I have to say… this short is awesome. Dr. Tingle captures Don… er Domald’s personality exactly, and it’s a bit of a horrifying read. Still funny, but horrifying at the same time. He pretty much nails the political climate for the Republican party on the head, and offers up his own theories as to why Domald is popular. It’s weird, contemporary, on point, funny, a bit sexy, and extremely fun to read. There IS a bonus Tingler at the end, but I am running out of time this week, so you will have to discover that sexy funny tale on your own! I give this short 10 out of 10 illegal dinosaurs!

Nicole

At one time, I had everything I wanted in life. Or I thought I did, but I lived in black and white. Then, he exploded into my world. Dragon.

He’s hot-blooded, cocky, stubborn as hell, and he drives me crazy. With him everything is more…It’s more vibrant, more exciting, more…real.

Suddenly I have everything to lose. In fact, I’m terrified that I might not be strong enough to hold on to it all. Because I’m learning with life, there are no hearts and flowers. Sometimes, there is just darkness.

Dragon

There’s one thing I know about life. You have to grab it by the throat and go at it full throttle.

Thrown away with the garbage on the day I was born, hooked on crack before I even take my first breath and doing what I had to do just to survive—

That’s who I am.
I’m the filth your mother warned you about.

The Savage MC is the only family I’ve ever had, the only ones I can depend on.
Then she walks into my life. Nicole.
Nothing like what I expected, sassy, smart and sexy as hell. She’s everything I could want and more.

Our worlds don’t mix. I’m only going to drag her down.
She should have never let me touch her…

Life can tear you into shreds, make you bend until you break.
Sometimes, you have to face death, so you can live.

Review

This is the first book by this author that I have read. I love MC romance, so I thought what the heck. It was an okay read. Nothing bad but not great either. I wanted to like it more than I did.

Dragon is the President of the Savage Brothers MC. Even though the MC still has some nefarious dealings, it’s almost a legal MC. Thank God they had to get dark in the story or I probably would’ve lost my shit.

Nicole was a decent heroine but not overly memorable. I liked that she was a little more full figured than most romance heroines. I guess that I never felt the connection between she and Dragon. Because of that, I never believed in the insta-love vibe of the story.

My life has been about three things- brotherhood, good times, and women. Easy. Nothing complicated. That was until Willow Swift came barging back into my life, face bloodied, banging at the gates of The Henchmen compound calling in a favor owed. Now a marker is a marker and I had to make good, but if there was one woman in the world I didn’t need in my life, it was the hard-as-stone, hot-as-sin Willow Swift and whatever mysterious ghosts from her past that were haunting her present.

WILLOW

My life has been nothing but two things: hard and complicated. The last person I wanted in my business was the notorious love-em and leave-em Cash, but I needed help and he was the only one I could lean on without worrying about him finding out about my past. But I was starting to wonder if maybe he was his own kind of dangerous bent on tearing down some things I had long since learned were not possible for me- like falling for a guy I could not, ever, let see the real me.

Review

I was really looking forward to Cash’s book. Who doesn’t love when the manwhore falls for his forever woman? I love that! Isn’t that why we all read romance? It’s certainly my reason for reading romance. This second installment in the series is about Cash and Lo. I liked Cash. I liked Lo. I just didn’t like the two of them together. I never felt any real connection between them. I tried, I really did.

I did like the suspense. I liked Lo’s backstory. I liked Wolf’s part of the book. I loved Cash’s all in attitude about Lo. I liked the sex too. I just wished I would’ve liked them as a couple more. I will try Wolf’s book next. I’m super excited about him.

Allen has been interested in politics his entire life, but when things don’t work out the way he’d planned, Allen settles for a fast paced carrier in political journalism.

It’s no surprise that Allen jumps at the chance to interview President Yuldok, a bigfoot, as well as the first non-human president of the United States. Allen also has his suspicions about the president’s sexuality, which come to a head during the interview.

Soon enough, Allen is making history by taking a gay pounding in the oval office from the first bigfoot president!

This erotic tale is 4,300 words of sizzling human on gay bigfoot action, including anal, blowjobs, double penetration, rough sex, and presidential beast love.

Review

I’ve been meaning to review Chuck Tingle’s work for a long time, because I love it. I love that he writes what he wants to write, and to heck with everyone else (and Ted Cobbler)! He writes to spread love and joy in the weirdest way possible, which is actually quite funny. Plus, he recently got nominated for a Hugo! I’m serious! I know some other authors who are viewing the nomination as a terrible thing, the fourth seal of the Apocalypse, and all in all just bad taste in showing how far politics rule the Hugos (and they do), but I think it’s fantastic! Why NOT an erotic author?

To this effect, I am unveiling this… TINGLEFEST 2016!

Whether Chuck Tingle is someone’s pen name, a real guy who has a thing for spaghetti and weird erotica, or a mix between the two, he’s made an impact in the erotica world. Some hate him. Some love him. But absolutely NO ONE will deny he’s the most bizarre-can’t-look-away-what-in-the-heck-did-I-just-read erotic author out there.

This is one of his first books (though not his very first… I think a couple of them got republished, which messed up the dates and I’m not actually sure which IS first), Pounded by President Bigfoot.

We start off in the mind of a handsome gay blogger Allen Bennett. Allen tells us about how Bigfeet, or Sasquatches, came out in a big press release because their natural habit was being encroached upon by people. In just a short while, they integrated smoothly into the American way of life and could be found everywhere waiting tables, pumping gas, or even holding small government positions.

Eventually, one surprised everyone and ran for president! Ah, Gardook Yuldok won the nomination and eventually the election to become the first bigfoot president! It was quite scandalous as he wasn’t married, so people theorized he might have been the first GAY president, but since the interspecies election held more sway, people just didn’t care so much about the gay aspect. I will point out here the text does say incorrectly that Gardook is the first president without a First Lady. This is wrong. The honor actually goes to James Buchanan.

Anyway, our lucky blogger gets a press pass to conduct an interview with President Yuldok! Allen is stressing himself trying to think of the hard hitting questions, but when the times comes, President Yuldok asks if he can fuck Allen.

At least the president doesn’t beat around the bush! The rest of the book is Allen at first saying no, and then coming to grips that he wants that big old bigfoot cock up his ass.

I found this book incredibly amusing, and while there were a couple of small errors (and some formatting paragraph indent weirdness, but I get where that comes from and sometimes with the software Amazon makes authors use, you get weird formatting), it was actually very well written. Oh, sure, it talks about how much Allen needs that big cock up his ass, but I found it actually quite clever and tender at the same time. There really is nothing like a Tingleverse erotic short. (PS: A lot of people aren’t to get that gif below, but that’s ok.)

In addition to Pounded by President Bigfoot, because the soul of books is love, we get a bonus story: I’m Gay for My Living Billionaire Jet Plane! This was a completely pleasant surprise for me as it was on my list of TBR for Tinglefest 2016. So, gentle readers, you get two Tinglers for the price of one!

I’m Gay for My Living Billionaire Jet Plane starts out with a guy, Alex, being nervous on a flight like we all are. He hears a voice out of nowhere comforting him, saying things will be alright. At first he thinks it’s the overhead speaker, but it’s not… it’s the plane! 

Alex is relieved, and finds out the plane’s name is Keith. Keith’s a pretty righteous dudebro who became a billionaire by counting cards in blackjack in Vegas. Don’t ask how Keith fit into the casino. Just… just don’t. Anyway, it turns out Keith is a little lonely and invites Alex over to hang with him like bros do and have some beers. Alex accepts and here’s where things start to get surreal. I know, I know, START to get surreal?

When Alex goes over to Keith’s mansion, he finds Keith hanging out by the pool since he can’t fit inside his house. Alex feels sorry for Keith, realizing that he’s really an outcast and offers to do something normal for him, like put sunscreen on his back. He’s especially interested in this after Keith takes off his shirt and reveals his cut six pack of abs. I’ve never noticed abs on my plane before when I flew, but… sure. Why not?

From there, Alex starts rubbing Keith down hard and then sees a smooth cock and balls! He just can’t resist riding that plane, and there the wild living object man sexing starts!

This one is a trip. Pounded by President Bigfoot was awesome, sort of tender, and a commentary on how anyone can be president… but bigfeet are still living things. Creatures, if fantastic, made of flesh and blood. This is a fucking plane. Literally, a fucking plane. Trippy, weird, and still somehow sweet at the same time, I couldn’t help but to smile all the way through this short, through both shorts actually. HUGO NOMINATED AUTHOR Dr. Chuck Tingle is a master of comedic, satirical, erotic commentary. The formatting can use a little work, true, but his son by the name of Jon does pretty good editing his stuff. It’s not that distracting. Hell, I think some of MY shorts have more errors, and I’m a fanatic about finding them. The thing about the Tingleverse is not that it’s erotic or funny, but that it’s sweet. And it is. It’s more romantic than a lot of romances I’ve read out there, and while I can’t vouch for the gay sex (even though I write it, it’s really not my kink), it is CERTAINLY imaginative! I can’t imagine anyone NOT smiling during a Tingler. I highly recommend this book, especially because of the bonus story… you get two Tinglers for the price of one! How can you not like that?

In the end, I give this book 9 Official Presidential Buttplugs out of 10.

For Hop, Lanie has always been untouchable. She’s too polished and too classy for his taste.

And he doesn’t regret it when he finds that Lanie is the best thing that’s ever happened to him-in or out of bed. Now the trick will be to convince her of that.

Review

I remembered Hop from Motorcycle Man. I wasn’t a fan of his at all. He was banging some club skank while he was married. Eww! I put off reading this book and series for a long time because of it. But I needed an audiobook and really liked the two books that followed this one. You get a little explanation of why he cheated but I still wasn’t havin’ it. It doesn’t matter if your ex cheated, if she was a bitch or if you were “on a break”. Married is married, asshole.

I remembered liking Lanie a lot. I felt so bad for her. She’s still trying to heal and let go of the past. To help with this process, she propositions Hop for some no strings sex. After a bit, Hop accepts and the results are blisteringly hot. But as she heals and learns to forgive herself, she develops feelings for Hop. Hop is all in from almost the beginning.

This was a solid addition to the series and I’m very intrigued about what’s next for Chaos.
