Author Bio

 

“BSM Stoneking is most well known for her bsm cropseries, The Vampires Ange De La Mort, a supernatural erotica series based on a secret vampire assassin who falls in love with the man of her dreams. Certain he’s “the one” she has no idea the man of her dreams has a secret bigger than her own. The erotic scenes in this book are well known, but the storyline is unforgettable.

Every author has a goal in making the reader feel something emotionally. Some want the reader to feel scared, have anxiety, laugh, cry, be angry. The main emotional goal I hope to create for all my readers is LUST. But in my novels, I hope that my reader can connect well with the main character not only in the bedroom, but also in the M.C.’s everyday life. 

As for my short stories…well those are being called “Porn on Paper”. I don’t recommend reading those when the kids are around, just before work, or when you won’t be able to satisfy your sexual needs once you’ve finished reading it. I’m writing those with a lust-goal in mind. By the time the reader is finished, I want s/he to have a strong lustful desire to masturbate, have sex, or try something new, wild, and kinky. Either way get what you want.” 

All of BSM Stoneking’s books and/or short stories overflow with Adult Only Content!

CoverReveal2

Synopsis

“A headstrong sassy mortal, Rain is a Mageia living in Tetartos, the Realm of beasts and Immortals. Her nights have been restless, filled with sensual dreams of a big blonde Guardian whose glares indicate he wants nothing to do with her. She is determined to shake off the odd feelings until she finds out her dream lover is responsible for her rescue from a demented Demi-God. In doing so, his touch ignites something rare and coveted. Something that she’s never anticipated… Something he should have told her about. Rain is set on making him explain and then feel the full force of her ire. After a devastating betrayal resulting in the loss of a close friend a century ago, Dorian refuses to trust or engage with Immortals other than his Guardian family. His years of brutal fighting in the underground Immortal rings are over. He patrols the Realms and slakes his lust with the humans on Earth. Existing, but not living as he used to. He knows the moment he scents Rain that he has found his mate and after touching her he plans to avoid her as long as he can… Until he learns she is in danger. Raging, his beast demands that he go to her, but taking her from their enemy has repercussions he fully plans to escape at all costs. For Dorian, finding a way out of mating Rain means he could succumb to madness and harm those that mean so much to him… but giving in to his burning urge for her means losing control in a heated mating frenzy sure to ignite them both and link them forever.”

Author Bio

The sad truth is that I’m not nearly as entertaining as fiction. *Wink* I am a thirty-seven year old stay at home writer, thanks to my incredibly supportive husband.  We’ve been together for thirteen years and I still love waking up next to that sexy man.  We lost our furry child recently, so we are childless at the moment.  Our whole world revolved around her.  Needless to say, I love animals, especially dogs.  Okay, maybe not all animals, I’m not a super big fan of monkeys.  Any animal that throws their feces kind of eeks me out.  I may, or may not, have a problem with candy.  I love any research that leads to Neiman Marcus’ online shoe department. Spreadsheets give me way more happiness than they should.  I love to read, the dirtier the better. It all started with the naughty historical romances by Judith McNaught that I devoured as a teenager.  I love reading about hot, sexy alpha males and heroines that are smart enough to live.

My Inspiration Behind the Characters

I have always loved angst ridden romance ever since the days of ‘My so called life’ and ‘Party of five’. I love the idea of a romance that is doomed to fail despite how much the characters are drawn to each other.

I wanted to create a story where the characters were unable to stay apart but didn’t really like each other. I also don’t like stories where the end is a foregone conclusion and so I like the reader to always guess what will happen next.

My inspiration for Kyle was every bad boy in fiction that I ever read, in my mind he was a lot harsher than I wrote him but it didn’t translate to paper and he became a tortured good guy deep down. I wanted him to be a mixture of Jordan Catalano from ‘My so called life’, Griffin from ‘Party of Five’ and Patrick from ’10 things I hate about you’. Someone who is adored by people but doesn’t require the adoration, who is effortlessly cool but doesn’t need the acceptance.

My inspiration for Sophie was the teenage angst movies that I have enjoyed my whole life. The torture of feeling like you don’t quite fit in and the hardship of realising that your parents aren’t perfect. You realise that your mum can love again and be giddy. You realise that you can get yourself into trouble and don’t have to ask permission for everything. My own teenage experiences and those of my friends were drawn on heavily,

Sophie gets a bad rep in some reviews for being whiny and selfish but really all she is someone who is too scared to just be herself and accept what she wants. She’s a typical teenager who worries more about what everyone else thinks rather than just following her heart.

Real life versus fiction – which parts of Hayley Oakes are included?

 

Interview with Hayley

Have you ever had your heart broken? Yes – a few times.

Have you ever had an attraction to a bad boy? Oh God yes – where are the good boys???

Have you ever fallen for someone who was out of bounds? No – however I craved a forbidden romance as a teenager.

Have you ever craved someone you hated? No – I’m too good at hating lol.

Are your parents divorced? Yes but I don’t have any step siblings

Have you ever had a holiday romance? No – that one passed me by.

Have you ever loved someone so intensely that you couldn’t bear the thought of living without them? Every day <3

Do you have a best friend like Ashley? Yes, I have an extremely close and amazing best friend but she isn’t as selfish as Ashley.

Do you regret letting a long lost love go? No, I have found my bad boy.

Have you found your HEA? Yes ….. thank God.

 

 

 

The British Psyche that causes love to be even more torturous …..

  

Brits are polite and say sorry a lot,

They keep their feelings bottled up and tied in a knot,

They find it hard to say exactly how they feel,

Keeping emotions hidden well, even as they heal.

 

Brits often tend to worry what other people think,

Not usually finding it easy to throw caution to the wind.

They need a cup of tea to calm any storm.

They need validation and like to conform.

 

When it comes to love, Brits find it hard to express,

Exactly how they feel which can leave them in a mess.

It’s hard to win at love if you aren’t prepared to say.

Just how much you feel and I love you every day.

 

Despite their guarded nature they love strong and deep.

You get loyalty and trust, qualities to keep.

The words are not forthcoming but actions certainly are,

Which speak louder than words and are preferred by far.

Just Dating

Kyle

 

The sun was shining on a Friday afternoon in May, and I was in an extremely happy mood, unusual for me. Especially since I had worked three late nights this week and Michelle had been whinging about moving in together again last night. Michelle was a great looking girl; there was no getting away from that, all tanned taut skin and legs that went on for miles. God, those legs were what attracted me in the first place and she always smelt phenomenal. The girl had a hell of a lot going for her but the issue was that when she opened her mouth she just plain irritated me. It wasn’t her voice, that was as smooth as honey; she was a backing singer, that’s how I met her. No it wasn’t the voice, it was the incessant moaning.

It had been two years since we met, she was the quintessential easy lay at first and we started seeing each other more and more, but with that came expectations. She wanted things to progress and I simply didn’t have the space in my life for a woman. Or perhaps the more she pushed, the more she whined, the less I had space for her … who knew? Anyway, she was hot, really hot, but it was getting to the point where the sex wasn’t worth the aggravation.

 Geraldine, my assistant, liked her, everyone seemed to like her, and I suppose she was great on paper, but all I seemed to get from her were her expectations. Perhaps looking like that she could afford to call the shots, but with me I think I was her stereotypical bad boy to tame, only issue was I didn’t want to be tamed – at least not by her. Maybe one day, maybe with someone who wanted to have a laugh, not someone who was desperate to tie me down.

My dad and stepmum Mags were on their way to visit me for the weekend and Michelle had decided she wanted to meet them. I had told her they were coming so she would stay away for the weekend, but she saw me telling her as an invitation instead. I didn’t have the strength to argue so I caved and made dinner reservations for four.

My dad and I were still repairing the damage of my teenage years, but I loved seeing Mags, she was the mother I should have had. My own didn’t even send me birthday cards on time these days, and Mags never missed a special event in my life. Mags made sure they visited a few times a year and my dad always liked to time it with some conference or other he could look in on. This weekend there was a classic car convention nearby.

My mood was high because I was excited to see them and I didn’t have to wait long as they arrived shortly after five; I met them downstairs at the car park in front of my apartment building.

“The traffic was horrendous,” Dad blustered as he stepped out of the driver’s side of his high-powered BMW, wearing jeans and a pale sweater stretched over his rounded stomach.

“Oh ignore him.” Mags said with a smile, magazines in her arm from the journey. “He’s just grumpy because he had to leave work early, workaholic.” She nodded to him warmly.

I pulled her into a hug as she walked towards me.

“Good to see you both,” I sighed.

“You too,” she soothed, giving me a squeeze as dad followed us sighing heavily and moaning about the motorway.

“So we get to meet your lady friend?” Mags said later, she was a classic beauty, dressed in a simple black dress and her hair fell loosely to her shoulders. She sat on the sofa with a glass of wine as we waited for a taxi.

“One of …” Dad scoffed.

“Hey.” I smirked, “I’m a one woman guy but this one ….” I scrunched my face slightly, “I dunno, she’s hard work.”

“They all are.” Dad stated with a wry grin and Mags swatted his arm.

“Well we’re honoured anyway.”

“Don’t be,” I sighed, “she sort of forced her way into the situation.” I shook my head and the both looked at each other knowingly.

I think they assumed I was some bachelor who didn’t want a permanent fixture in my bed, but to be honest it was more that I’d never met anyone I could stand to be around for any great length of time. I wasn’t a cheater, and I wasn’t particularly short of casual sex if I needed it, so I didn’t need a long term girl but sometimes one stuck by accident. That was Michelle.

We set off in the taxi shortly after and picked Michelle up from her apartment on the way. I was taking my parents to a new swanky restaurant in the city centre and I knew Dad would love it. He loved extravagance and luxury.

The cab pulled up outside Michelle’s Camden walk up apartment that was a lofty space in an old white, Edwardian home… She looked amazing as she waved from the doorway, man those legs!

“Bloody hell,” Dad said as she locked the door, “she looks like a super model.”

“Mick.” Mags nudged him, “inappropriate.”

“What?” he held his hands up with a smile and then hugged her. They sat on the back bench seat and Michelle slid in next to me on one of the two folded down seats.

“Hi,” she said breathlessly with a huge grin.

“Hello,” Mags said extending her hand, “I’m Maggie.”

“Hello,” Michelle said.

“Mick.” Dad said also extending his hand out for a shake.

I put my hand on Michelle’s back as we walked inside the restaurant thirty minutes later. Everyone’s head swivelled to see her when we entered. I wondered if life would really be so bad having a ten out of ten girlfriend in the looks stakes, maybe I could deal with everything else. Maybe I could make this work?

Once we were seated Dad ordered some champagne and we all chatted easily. We perused the menu and when the champagne arrived Mags smiled broadly.

“So, I’ve just been reminded by this lovely champagne, we have had some good news, and I really wanted to tell you in person.”

“Oh?” I asked, looking between them with curiosity wondering what could have happened, perhaps a lottery win?

“It’s Sophie.” Mags said, just the mention of her name made my heart thud instantly, we didn’t often talk about her, but when we did it was usually in passing and ended fairly quickly. “She’s engaged!” she said with a huge grin, taking a sip of her champagne.

“Oh.” I said again, trying to muster some enthusiasm. Trying to not look weird. “Oh that’s the news.” I said, studying my glass, my heart pounding involuntarily, my mind suddenly awash with memories. She flew back into my conscious, her hair, her smile, her smell and the way she had made me feel. Sophie … engaged.

“I supposed men aren’t bothered about weddings.” Mags tittered.

“Oh, erm sorry, yes that’s great news.” I said with more enthusiasm.

“It’s OK,” Dad chuckled, “I think it’s a woman thing, men just pay the bills.”

“Hey,” Mags gave him a disapproving look and he laughed.

“Who’s Sophie?” Michelle asked innocently.

Who the hell was she??? I hadn’t seen her for years, hadn’t been near her for longer than that, and hadn’t thought about her for long enough to feel like I had moved on.

“She’s my daughter,” Mags said cheerily, “Kyle’s step-sister.”

“Oh lovely.” Michelle said with a wide smile.

The rest of the evening descended into a thick cloud on my part, I don’t think Dad and Mags noticed, but every time Michelle tried to touch me I shrugged her away. I wasn’t upset, I wasn’t angry, but what the hell was I? I suppose disappointed …not for us, or even for me, but for her. What the hell was she doing settling for that idiot? I mean I didn’t know him, but I assumed he was a loser as I never heard them boasting about his career. He was just some guy who could never give her what she deserved.

Michelle placed her hand on my leg part way through the main course and without thinking I pushed it away, I couldn’t relax with her draped all over me and I was irritated. The conversation turned from marriage to work, to friends of my parents to God knows what. After the plates were cleared I excused myself to go to the toilet. and when I got there Michelle had followed me.

“What’s wrong with you, you arsehole?” she asked in a hushed whisper as we stood in a corridor off the main restaurant where the toilets were located.

I looked at her bemused and sighed, running my hand through my hair with frustration. “Nothing.”

“You’re being weird with me and it’s embarrassing”.

“Oh for fuck’s sake Michelle, why is everything about you and your needs? You drive me insane.” I growled.

“I drive you insane?” she huffed, “try dating someone who you have no idea if he even likes you most of the time, and when you try your best to squeeze an iota of information out of him he closes up. That’s insane.”

“So dump me then.” I said harshly; close enough to her face so she could see the anger coursing through me.

“I wish I could.” She lowered her voice once again but maintained eye contact.

 I sighed, “Michelle I’m not right for you, I’m moody, angry and I don’t want what you want.”

She looked up through tears, “but I love you …” I saw the hurt and pain in her eyes, I saw her beauty and I saw her weakness but I didn’t love this woman. I didn’t love her at all. I liked her at best plus she was pretty good in the sack. I was annoyed that one conversation with Mags about Sophie had brought back all the unwelcome feelings that I didn’t realise I still harboured for her. I no longer wanted Michelle to touch me and I certainly didn’t want her telling me she loved me. I cared for her but I couldn’t imagine wanting her to stick around forever.

She nodded solemnly and left me to go to the ladies room; I did my business and made it back to the table before her.

I slid back into my chair and both dad and Mags looked at me expectantly.

“Not the one for you then?” Mags asked with a smile.

 “How could you tell?” I asked taking a sip of my drink.

 “Well the lack of interest in her was my first clue and the fact that she tried every way possible to touch you and you shrugged her off,”

“And the fact that she just left the restaurant a few minutes ago without saying goodbye,” dad finished with a chuckle.

“Oh God.” I put my head in my hands, “I’m so shit at this relationship stuff.”

 “Don’t worry,” dad said patting Mag’s leg, “You’ll find the one for you soon enough.” I nodded and swigged my wine.

I watched them together with their easy smiles and the happiness that oozed from them and all I could think about was did Sophie have this with her fiancé? Did he set her alight like she used to do me? Did she have the settled calmness that came from knowing you had finally found the right person that fit you so perfectly? I had never had that and no one had ever made me feel as electrified as she had made me feel. Perhaps it was because it was forbidden or perhaps it was the way we used to clash. I wasn’t sure what had made me crave her so badly back then but I had.

The years allowed me to forget and gloss over that part of my life but whenever I saw Mags she reminded me of that girl and tonight she reminded me of exactly what I had lost and what I had been settling for.

This story sort of reminded me of the movie Clueless but only in regards to Cher (Alicia Silverstone) and her “former” step brother, Josh (Paul Rudd), falling in love and both being filthy rich. Everything else was unique and I LOVED it!! I wasn’t really sure what to expect when I started this book and I have to say that I was genuinely blown away!

I did not like Kyle at first and I thought he was just a spoiled jerk who only cared for himself. When he would yell at Sophie and tell her those horrible things, it made my heart hurt. Then I realized that as a young adult, he just didn’t understand or know how to deal with the type of feelings he was having. Kyle as an adult, he had grown very wise and knew exactly who and what he wanted.

The back and forth between Kyle and Sophie in their younger years is so damn hot that I get butterflies in my belly just thinking about it. As adults… its explosive!

“He ran his hands over my hips and squeezed me gently. ‘I can’t get your tight little body out of my head, and all I want to do is barge into your room and….’ He stopped and took a deep breath. ‘It’s because I’m the only girl you can’t have.”

“She’s the person I would move heaven and earth for.”

back scratch

I did like Sophie but her constant whining got on my nerves. As a teenager I could completely understand her reluctance to be with Kyle. They live in the same house and their parents are married so that makes them step siblings/related. People will talk and shit will hit the fan. As an adult, I still understood her reservations about being together openly. What will their parents, family and friends think and what will people say? However, even after Sophie admitted her feelings and they were planning on being together openly, she continued to make excuses for them to not be together. It was infuriating! I finally got to a point where I just wanted to jump into the book and smack her!

“Perhaps coming here wasn’t going to help me at all. Perhaps it would just transfer one type of sadness to another.”

leg grab

“To be with the right person wasn’t supposed to come without a struggle and mine was to swallow that feeling of shame.”

Now for some of the things I didn’t like and only docked 1/2 a star because the story is soooo good. The word “whilst” is completely overused. I did a word search and its used 49 times. With that being said this author is British and it very well could be a British thing. Another thing that bothered me was that there was a lot of alcohol in this book. I don’t mind the consumption of alcohol but it feels like it was an excuse to loosen up the characters so they can make some bad decisions. However, they never once blamed anything on the alcohol and that made me happy. It seemed to only loosen their inhibitions. Then when Kyle and Sophie were together for the first time, I thought it cheapened the experience to be on a bench in public. Don’t get me wrong, that was a HOT scene, but I think it would have been better if that part of their relationship was more developed first. And lastly the jumping back and forth from past to present. It wasn’t terrible, but got a little confusing. In the beginning I found myself more interested in their younger years rather than the present. I think I understand why the author jumped back and forth from past to present and it’s all about Sophie. She had a hard time coming to terms with their relationship when they were young and had all the same feelings again as an adult. So I guess if it was written with the past in the first half then the present the second half, then the author would have caught hell for repeating the story. So, bravo Hayley Oakes! Bravo!

Overall, I loved this book! The characters are well developed and believable and the sex is amazing! This is a very, very well written book and I highly recommend it to anyone who likes to skirt the line of taboo. This is a step sibling romance and I personally know one person who doesn’t like reading about this. This was my first step siblings romance so I wasn’t sure what to expect and I ended up really enjoying it. I can’t wait to read more from this author!!

“It was not written in the stars for us. We were Romeo and Juliet, and if we weren’t careful wed kill each other trying to be together. .”

About ALEX:

Hockey star Alexander Crossman has a reputation as a cold-hearted player on and off the rink. Pushed into the sport by an alcoholic father, Alex isn’t afraid to give fans the proverbial middle finger, relishing his role as the MVP they love to hate. Management, however, isn’t so amused. Now Alex has a choice: fix his public image through community service or ride the bench. But Alex refuses to be molded into the Carolina Cold Fury poster boy… not even by a tempting redhead with killer curves.

As a social worker, Sutton Price is accustomed to difficult people—like Alex, who’s been assigned to help her create a drug-abuse awareness program for at-risk youth as part of the team’s effort to clean up his image. What she doesn’t expect is the arrogant smirk from his perfect lips to stir her most heated fantasies. But Sutton isn’t one to cross professional boundaries—and besides, Alex doesn’t do relationships… or does he? The more she sees behind Alex’s bad-boy façade, the more Sutton craves the man she uncovers.

REVIEW ~ Invincible (The Trident Code, #1) by Alana Albertson

“I’ll be honest with you—I’m no hero. Sure, the media tries to brand every Navy SEAL as some kind of Batman dressed in cammies. There’s even a line in one of our cadences: “Superman is the man of steel, he ain’t no match for Navy SEAL.” You’ve seen the movies—we’re indestructible, invincible. But that night, the one you read about in the papers … all I really wanted to do was get laid.

One harmless fuck with a Curaçao whore, no strings attached. I picked her out of a lineup—wild, dark hair, long legs and a crooked smile. After she sucked me off, I relaxed back onto the creaky, cum-stained cot, thankful for the blissful moments she gave me when I actually forgot for a second the faces of my buddies who died because I made the wrong call, the tears of the children I couldn’t save, and the eyes of the enemies I slaughtered during their last seconds of life. 

But before I left, her hazel eyes peered into my soul. She whispered in a distinct Californian accent, “My name is Annie Hamilton. I’m an American citizen. I was kidnapped from a cruise ship five years ago. You’re my last hope. Please save me.”

One desperate plea. This wasn’t a Hollywood blockbuster or a New York Times best-selling thriller. I knew that this time there was no room for excuses, no margin for errors. I had one chance to put the cape on and be her hero.”

Review

I’ll be honest with you—I’m no hero. Sure, the media tries to brand every Navy SEAL as some kind of Batman dressed in cammies. There’s even a line in one of our cadences: “Superman is the man of steel, he ain’t no match for Navy SEAL.” You’ve seen the movies—we’re indestructible, invincible. But that night, the one you read about in the papers … all I really wanted to do was get laid.

One harmless fuck with a Curaçao whore, no strings attached. I picked her out of a lineup—wild, dark hair, long legs and a crooked smile. After she sucked me off, I relaxed back onto the creaky, cum-stained cot, thankful for the blissful moments she gave me when I actually forgot for a second the faces of my buddies who died because I made the wrong call, the tears of the children I couldn’t save, and the eyes of the enemies I slaughtered during their last seconds of life.

But before I left, her hazel eyes peered into my soul. She whispered in a distinct Californian accent, “My name is Annie Hamilton. I’m an American citizen. I was kidnapped from a cruise ship five years ago. You’re my last hope. Please save me.”

This book had me hooked from the above blurb. I got chills and knew I had to read it. I’m a huge fan of military romantic suspense and I must have needed a hit of it because this book worked for me on every level. From Annie’s whispered plea, Patrick’s reaction to it, his promise to rescue her and bring her home. Also, both of the characters’ determination toward their end goals.

I’ve seen some negative reviews of this book and while I understand some of the complaints made, I also know that everyone is flawed and mistakes are made. I enjoyed the guilt that came with decisions that were made in the story. The corrections and the making right of those decisions. You get a lot of things in this novella length book and I loved it all. Human sex slave trading happens and it wasn’t glamorized here. It was nice to have a happy ending in this story, even if it is a work of fiction. Alana Albertson has gained a fan and I would love to hear about Patrick’s two friends who helped him pull off her rescue.
This is the one if not the best books I’ve read all year.

“My father taught me the importance of an eye for an eye—a cardinal rule, ingrained in every club member.

A life for a life.

Seven lives in payment for an unimaginable list of sins.

People might wonder why I’m doing this. If this vengeance is borne from some noble cause. If I’m trying to prevent others from suffering at the hands of Dornan Ross and his sons.

But I’m no selfless vigilante.

I’m doing this for me. I’m doing it because I want to.

I’m doing this because I just want to be able to sleep at night without seeing their faces.

This is the fate they have earned. The penance for their crimes.
Time to send some of these brothers off with a bang.”

 

ReviewHOLY FUCK! OH EMM GEE! HOLY FUCKNUTSAMAZBALLSCRYINGREVENGEPOLT!!!!!I… I’m…. just… I don’t know what to say. I’m sure I’ll find the words somehow, but right now I’m speechless. I’m telling you now… If you haven’t read this series yet, PLEASE do yourself, your mind, your eyeballs and your heart a favor and read this MUTHAFUCKING KICKASS SERIES! You will not be disappointed. 

Kill the Gypsy Brothers

I’m sure everyone knows there is a sort of formula or recipe for romance or even the dark love stories. And I’m sure we all knew what was going to happen in the Five Miles installment of the Gypsy Brothers. Well, Lili St. Germain will show you exactly how not to try and predict her story. She will bitch slap you into another world. 

surprise

“I want him to fuck me and hurt me and make me bleed, make me feel something, because I’m stubborn and twisted as fuck, and I want to be able to say he tried his best to destroy me and failed.”



Some of the questions I’ve been asking myself since the start of this crazy adventure are also realized by Sammie. She is forced to think about the future and others around her, but she’s on a war path to destruction and is ready to go down in the flames. 

NaughtyBookSnitch

At this point I have no idea what is going to happen next. I’m so blown away right now I’m surprised I’m semi-functioning to even type something up. 

pass out

I fucking hate Dornan and his sons! I want them all to die slow and painful deaths and I want each one of them to know who has finally brought them justice. 

blue eye cry

“The ghost I had become-the girl suspended in time, neither dead nor alive-felt the first stirrings of hope, of new beginnings and second changes.”



bag breather

“I think you’re Dornan’s son and you just kissed the girl who’s going to kill him.”



holy shit 


Overall, this is my favorite one so far and I cant wait to see what is coming next in Four Score! Everything was perfect for me and hit on all cylinders. Now my vagina is betraying me because some of these sex scenes are really fucking hot and I know I’m not supposed to like them. Fuck it! Who cares! Do I really need to say anything else? Nope! Are you going to go out and get the series? I really hope so.

REVIEW ~ Animus by Ophelia Bell (Sleeping Dragons #1)

Title: Animus
Author: Ophelia Bellanimus
Published Date: January 23, 2014
Genres: Erotica, Romance, Paranormal, Shifters, Dragons
Pages: 43
Heat Level: 3 out of 4 Flames
Overall: 4 out of 5 Stars

 

For Erika and her team of Ivy League-educated archaeologists, trekking through a hot, wet jungle and penetrating the depths of the elusive dragon temple they’ve been hunting is all in a day’s work. Little do they know that once inside, their minds and bodies will become immersed in centuries-old magic, the tantalizing effects of which they are powerless to resist.

In spite of her attempts to prove she still has control, the magic compels Erika to begin a series of rituals to revive the long-sleeping denizens within the temple. Uncertain what to expect, her desire wins out when she sets eyes on the figure she is meant to awaken—a red dragon bound in the form of a beautiful man frozen in jade but definitely ready for her attention.

 

Review

 

What a pleasant surprise! I’ve been in a paranormal/shifter slump for a bit and this has brought my interest back. Not only was this super charged erotic but it has a really interesting story to back it up. Which I think is very difficult to do in only 37 pages. Another thing that’s difficult to do, is leave the short story with a HFN and you’re ok waiting until the next installment comes out. Bravo
Ophelia Bell! Bravo!

\

This is a short story about Erika and her team of archaeologists, looking for a legend Dragon temple. Once the temple is discovered, Erika and her team open the doors to find dragon statues and artifacts. While trying to figure out the mystery of the Dragon temple and statues, they are surrounded by magic that keeps them in an aroused state of mind and body.

I really liked this story. I thought the author told a fantastic story in a short amount of time. I thought the storyline was well thought out and unique, the characters are interesting and the sex is phenomenal! Statues, Dragons and Magic, FUCKY YA!! I will warn some of you that may have issues with a dragon shifter, in dragon form having sex with a human. I thought that was fucking awesome and I want MORE OF THAT!!! Also one of the characters is bisexual but does not go into detail which I thought was a little disappointing. The only thing that could have made the last sex scene better was if the male dragon was taking on both the male and female humans. SWEET JEZZ-US! OMG! Im about to slide outta my seat just thinking about it. Bring on the dragon orgies!

My only complaint is that it’s to short and it would be nice if all the stories were sold together in one set/novel. With that being said there is no cliffhanger but does leave some questions unanswered and the reader wanting more.

Overall, I fucking loved it. Like I said before, the story is well told in a short amount of time, the characters are interesting and I cant wait to learn more about each of them (especially Kris). (view spoiler) The sex is super erotic and does the job in the arousal territory. I have just one last thing to say… Ophelia Bell, you have a new fan!!

Now for some fun quotes:

“What kind of sex dungeon did you bring us to, Erika?”

 

“No more than you shoving my face into your wet pussy and telling me to eat you like a starving man…”

 

“I always wondered what a dragon’s dick looked like. Almost as nice as mine. And its so smooth. Seriously, you need to touch it.”

 

“Her plan had been to rub out enough orgasms to send herself into a mini-coma and sleep through the night…”

REVIEW ~ Play by Kylie Scott (Stage Dive #2)

Title: Play
Series: Stage Dive
Author: Kylie Scottplay stage dive
Published by: St. Martin’s Griffin
Published Date: March 25, 2014
Genres:
Pages: 288
Heat Level: 3 Flames
Overall: 5 Stars

 

Kylie Scott returns with the highly anticipated follow-up to international bestseller Lick. Mal Ericson, drummer for the world famous rock band Stage Dive, needs to clean up his image fast—at least for a little while. Having a good girl on his arm should do the job just fine. Mal doesn’t plan on this temporary fix becoming permanent, but he didn’t count on finding the one right girl. Anne Rollins never thought she’d ever meet the rock god who plastered her teenage bedroom walls—especially not under these circumstances. Anne has money problems. Big ones. But being paid to play the pretend girlfriend to a wild life-of-the-party drummer couldn’t end well. No matter how hot he is. Or could it?

 

ReviewLoved it! I mean I absolutely loved it! Kylie Scott, you enchantress. I’m on my knees, doing the “we’re not worthy” thing. I’m worshipping at the altar of you. Play was fantastic. Hilariously wonderful. Whew! Now that that’s done, let me tell you all about the book.

Mal is the drummer for Stage Dive and a bit of a man whore and a bit of a hot mess. He’s dealing with a boatload of problems, from changes in the band, family issues and the need to run from it all. He’s in the shadows at a party and sees a girl talking on the phone. She’s explaining the latest of her bad luck woes to someone on the other line. Her story intrigues him and he sees her vulnerability. It sparks something in him. She calms the demons he’s facing. He provokes her into a small argument, much to the shock of the rest of the party. Mal is pretty happy go lucky and gets along with everyone, so fighting with a woman is strange for him.

Anne has had a string of bad luck lately. To make matters worse, she’s talked into going to a party, where her crush has just heard about her newest catastrophe. After he tells her she needs to quit letting people take advantage of her, she yells at him. In front of everyone at the party. Later at the party, he tells everyone he and Anne are going to start dating. She is shocked and flabbergasted at his announcement . When she gets home from work the next day, he’s moved into her apartment with her! How can she keep her composure through this charade?!

Kylie Scott gives us a bad boy hero whose heart is about to break, a Plain Jane heroine who finally gets what she deserves, a best friend who realized what he lost too late, friends who will sacrifice for those they love, a story that makes you laugh out loud and sex scenes that you need fan for. Is there anything else you could possibly need?

REVIEW ~ Wild Ways by Tina Wainscott (Justiss Alliance #2)

Author: Tina Wainscott
Published by: Loveswept
Published Date: May 13, 2014WildWays Cover
Genres: Contemporary, Romance
Pages: 247 Pages
Heat Level: 3 Flames
Overall: 4 Stars

 

The Justiss Alliance returns in Tina Wainscott’s novel of outlaws and daredevils, as the search for a missing woman forces two brave souls to tap into their wild side.

When her sister, Diana, rides off into the sunset with a member of the Kings of Chaos motorcycle gang, Mollie Reagan is beyond worried. Two weeks later, a desperate call from Di is abruptly cut off, launching Mollie on a dangerous search.

Before Julian Cuevas receives his first assignment for the Justiss Alliance, he finds one of his own: a beautiful, courageous woman looking for her sister in the dark world of violent criminals. Soon Mollie’s mission is Julian’s mission—one he’d give his life for.

Mollie is used to going it alone. Trusting one stranger is hard enough, but Julian brings a whole team from the private “security” firm he works for. The sexy SEAL is living proof that some people can be counted on, even if her savior is a well-armed world-class sniper riding in on his Harley. From head to toe, Julian is a lethal weapon—and now he’s taking aim at fulfilling Mollie’s every desire.

 

Review

This year I have become a big fan of Tina Wainscott and her new series, the Justiss Alliance. I loved the novella that spawned the series and enjoyed the first full length book. I do have to say that I enjoyed this book more than the first though. I felt a little bit let down with the previous one considering I was crazy about the novella. This series is a lot like Maya Banks’ KGI series or Cindy Gerard’s Black Ops, Inc. series, both I happen to love. So needless to say, I’m thrilled to have another military romantic suspense series to read. It is truly one of my favorite genres.

Julian Cuerva is a disgraced former SEAL who has recently joined The Justiss Alliance. He hasn’t had a case yet and conveniently one falls into his lap. After seeing a beautiful redhead at a gas station earlier in the day, he sees her again at a renown biker bar. This intrigues him because she doesn’t look like the kinda of girl that usually hangs out at this type of a bar. Julian rides a motorcycle but is not a biker. He and his former teammate, Rath decide to sit and watch what happens to the pretty redhead as she approaches the bar.

Mollie is hunting for her wayward sister. She lost her job, most of her money and the help of her grandparents searching for her sister. See, Mollie is a caretaker of people. She has this need inside her to protect and nurture the people she cares about. Her hunt for her sister is because other than her grandparents, she has never been able to count on anyone. Her mother was an addict, her father abandoned the family and her sister’s lifestyle choices have left Mollie to fend for herself. Not to mention her choice in men is abominable. She knows her sister was last seen with a one percent biker named Brick and that she vanished after a frightened phone to Mollie, begging for her help. 

Julian takes it upon himself and his employers by extension, to help Mollie in her search. He admires her tenacity and determination but begins to realize her desire for family but her fear of abandonment. Julian, a lover of women soon accepts he’s met the one. Mollie, not so much. She has walls built up so high that even Julian can climb them. Together, they chase down leads through bars, strip clubs and biker haunts. Their search brings them ever closer and they discover a horror they never could have imagined going on in this outlaw motorcycle gang.

This was a great book and it gave us a different look at MC in romance novels. The market is flooded now with MC romance and I’m a huge fan of it but it does glamorize the abuse of women. I, being a woman, am obviously against violence toward women. I felt that this was probably a closer to the truth depiction of women’s lives in an MC. Maybe not to the full extent of this story but close. If you like military romantic suspense, pick this one up you won’t be sorry.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review via NetGalley.
