Far from home Alisa is restless and cranky. What she needs is the firm hand of her man to quench her thirst and calm her. What she needs is to be put in her place with the kind of punishment that leaves her panting and cherished. But what does it matter what she needs? So long into a road trip, her needs will just have to wait, won’t they? What she should have remembered is that where her needs are concerned, He will always be there to meet them. And when you play with power Alisa, anywhere can be your playground…

 

Review

This is the third book by Felicity Brandon that I read in the last week, if that’s saying anything. Full disclosure: the first two books by Felicity were in a mega bundle Commanding Obedience, where yours truly also has two books. I had to buy the bundle to read the other amazing authors’ work, and I was definitely pleased.

What struck me immediately when I flipped to the first page of Destination Anywhere, was the narrative style: the ‘somewhat’ second person (it wasn’t a pure second person, since the protagonist also uses first person narrative). This is not commonly seen in today’s fiction, so it was surprising, in the most positive way. It almost felt like the heroine was writing a letter to her Dom, but the events were taking place in real time. I was pulled into the action, and the emotions were felt even more raw (rawer? doesn’t sound right for some reason) than if they would have been described in pure first or even third person narrative. It reminded me of Lars von Trier’s film Europa for this reason.

The plot of the story is simple enough: a couple on a road trip. The heroine is in a pensive mood, and when asked by her Dom “What’s wrong,” she can’t come up with a legible answer. This makes him angry, and it makes her scared (in a good way — she knows a punishment is coming). What’s more important, it makes both of them horny as hell. The main action takes place in a public restroom. He commands her to go to the men’s room and wait for him there. Some heavy spanking ensues, followed by unexpected backdoor action, then ATM (you’ve been forewarned), and finally, regular (albeit rough and ravenous) sex.

Felicity’s power of description is breathtaking, and I found myself following along the lines of the book, anxious to see what happens next. The sex scenes are described so vividly that I almost felt like this was happening to me as I was reading it (the second person narrative likely intensified this impression too). All in all, a worthy read. I’ll be following Felicity closely.

Positive. With two little lines on a pregnancy test, everything in Lizzy Rollins’ ordinary life is about to change forever. And all because of one big mistake in Vegas with Ben Nicholson, the irresistibly sexy bass player for Stage Dive. So what if Ben’s the only man she’s ever met who can make her feel completely safe, cherished, and out of control with desire at the same time? Lizzy knows the gorgeous rock star isn’t looking for anything more permanent than a good time, no matter how much she wishes differently.

Ben knows Lizzy is off limits. Completely and utterly. She’s his best friend’s little sister now, and no matter how hot the chemistry is between them, no matter how sweet and sexy she is, he’s not going to go there. But when Ben is forced to keep the one girl he’s always had a weakness for out of trouble in Sin City, he quickly learns that what happens in Vegas, doesn’t always stay there. Now he and Lizzie are connected in the deepest way possible…but will it lead to a connection of the heart?

Review

Lizzy Rollins just wanted to finish school, become a psychologist and get the man she wanted. One overly intoxicated night, she gets the man she wants. He acts like a douche and she kicks him out. Fast forward two months and a positive pregnancy test. Lizzy has no idea what to say to her baby daddy. Whatever happens, both of their worlds are going to change, in more ways than one.

Ben Nicholson, bass guitarist for Stage Dive, is the baby daddy. He has wanted Lizzy for a long time but promised his best friend that he wouldn’t touch her. Except, that he did. He never wanted a relationship or kids but now he has at least one of them. How will being a dad affect his lifestyle of easy going, no commitments and putting his music first?

This was a wonderful conclusion to this fantastic series. I loved Ben in the previous books. He was always so quiet but watchful. Always watching Lizzy. I did have a problem with him however here because he was kind of an asshole. Not mean just very uninvolved. He was just selfish. Now Lizzy, I loved her. I loved that she knew what she wanted even when it appeared it didn’t want her back. There was a great deal of emotion in this novel. I’ve so enjoyed this series and I’m very sad to see it end. Unless Kylie Scott writes something crazy, I’ll follow wherever she goes.

Kendall Miller walked away from the VP of the Death Dwellers to heal. She’d made mistake after mistake. Just weeks before she delivers Johnnie’s baby, she wants to reclaim the sexy club VP.

Johnnie’s angry and hurt that Kendall walked away from him on their wedding day. He swears it’s over between them. But Kendall is determined to seal their love once and for all.

 

Review

This is a wrap up of sorts to the on going love saga of Johnnie and Kendall. For all of you Kendall haters, my girl is back! I’ve seen some readers say that they won’t read anything with her in it. To that I say, “Then don’t read it. You are the ones missing out.” Kendall is a non-filtered, no holds barred heroine. Her comments are abrasive, true enough but I think it comes from a good place. She wants the MC women to have identities of their own, separate from the men in their lives. I’m not saying that it’s her business but it’s not malicious. Except for Meggie. This story deals with that animosity.

Kendall has her issues that she truly is trying to deal with and its still a bumpy road. Johnnie, still reeling from Kendall’s leaving him, is struggling to accept the depths of his feelings. He’s hateful and cruel, lashing out with his pain. He also has to consider his mistakes and own those. There are a couple of other side stories going on to take us into the next book. I can’t wait.

Review ~ The Claiming of Sabrina by Bella Swann

Title: The Claiming of Sabrina

Series: Submissive Mermaids of Avalon in Erotic Captivity, Book 1

Author: Bella Swann

Genre: Paranormal erotica, Monster erotica

Pages: 46

Heat level: 4 out of 4 flames

Overall rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed by Naughty Book Snitch: Connie Cliff

 

This is a darkly erotic story of the Claiming of Sabrina, a curious and submissive adult mermaid who ventures too closely to the Kingdom of Man and is taken prisoner. She encounters many alpha males all too willing to take control of her sweet little body and force her to submit to waves of unending sexual pleasure intertwined at times with pain. This is a work of fiction meant for those over the age of consent and contains elements of dubious consent, dominant male, submissive female, medical play, and paranormal encounters.

 

Review

 

I cannot get me enough of Bella Swann’s magical stories. I’ve read several of them so far, and she hasn’t stopped to amaze me. So when I got a request to review this one, I knew I was going to have a good time. I had a nice dinner, couple of glasses of wine, then I settled in my favorite chair, while my partner did the dishes (I hate doing dishes, it stifles my creativity).

The Claiming of Sabrina is the most audacious book by Bella I’ve read thus far. Within the first page or so, I was thrown in, head first (and underwater, obviously), into this scorching sex scene between the mermaid and her two buddies. Who just happen to be dolphins. Holy mother fuck! (Mindy, we’re allowed to swear on this blog, right?)

My eyes kept getting bigger and bigger as I kept reading. Bella’s imagination seems to have no limit – which is great, for I would’ve never thought to turn my brain to think that way, not in a million years. Sabrina was having some seriously rough play with the dolphins, in a scene that just about took my breath away. Monster erotica had a whole new meaning for me now. My “tail slit” was on fire. There is some crazy nipple torture thrown in, appropriately done with seaweed, and I found myself checking my own nipples to make sure there was enough circulation going to them. Turned out, both Sabrina and I had seriously needy nipples. Dishes be damned, I had to take a break.

(x-rated scene omitted from the review).

And I’m back.

Then Sabrina is captured by some devious scuba divers, who kidnap her and take her above water. After that, a crazy kinky doctor takes charge. I don’t want to re-tell the plot of the story any more than I already have, but the rest of it continues in the same vein of rough sex, submission, some more crazy-ass nipple torture, medical play, and … the most taboo … sleep sex. Holymotherfuckingmotherfuck.

This was the ultimate read in dubcon monster erotica. Trust. Note to self: next time I pick up one of Bella’s “fairy tales,” I need to do it when my partner is at home, not away on a business trip. There are some inevitable side effects to reading Bella, and those need to be quelled, like pronto.

About The Author

 

Bella Swann is a lover of erotica in all forms: art, film, and literature. She uses her sexual fantasies throughout the day to bring pleasure to her mind so that by the end of the day (or if she can slip in a nooner), she is in the perfect physical and mental state to have hot, passionate sex with her partner or if she is home alone, then she will have passionate sex with just herself. She believes that there are only two driving passions in one’s life: food and sex. Since she is not an inspired chef but really loves having sex, when it came time to decide what to write about, the choice of sex over food was an easy one. Bella wants to write about sex in a way that will appeal to both male and female readers so she writes very explicit sex stories with BDSM and forced/dubious consent, but not with the extreme level of violence that she finds uncomfortable to read in some erotic works. Her erotica is perfect for couples to enjoy reading together before acting out her scenes and bringing a little bit of extra spice to their sex lives. As for those who prefer solitude for their pleasures, it is her hope that her work will bring them great sexual pleasure as well. After all, different strokes for different folks is always a good motto to live by. Please enjoy the explicit sexual fantasies within her books. She hopes you enjoy reading them as much as she enjoyed writing them for you.

Review

 

 

Well, my literary futa-cherry has just been popped. I’ve been curious about reading futanari erotica, and who would be the best author to introduce me to this kink than the irreverent brazen beast of a writer, Moctezuma Johnson?

This story centers on an old tradition of Steak and Blow Job Day, celebrated in different ways in various cultures. As the main character’s wife prepares the dinner for him, she becomes pre-occupied by the crazy idea of getting a BJ, instead of giving one. How nuts is that? To make it as realistic as possible, she not only procures a life-size realistic organ, but she also makes sure the, ahem, juice is free-flowing as well. Vanilla flavored, at that.

As it always happens when I read Moctezuma’s stories, I seriously enjoyed myself, the smile never leaving my face. There is simply no one like him in today’s literary erotica. If you haven’t yet, you MUST read one of his books.

About The Author

 

 

 

Moctezuma is now literary porn’s King of Hardcore Erotica, but that wasn’t always so. This once blacklisted writer had to fight to get freedom of speech. Before publishing, Moctezuma was messing around writing for newspapers through Asia and Latin America. He was a business writer given a finance beat in Hong Kong and Singapore. He was always enjoying nightlife wherever he went. He was interested in writing. He was interested in sex. Then he met a gorgeous supermodel who was able to inspire him to put the two together. Thus Moctezuma Johnson revealed his till then confidential stories. He started by blogging but was brutally censored. He spent years censored, concealed, and off-limits to the public. Then he found Girls Carrying Books Erotic Book Publisher and enjoyed sharing his tawdry brand of hardcore XXX literary porn with the hungry public. His years of defiance and courage paid off. He had built a blog archive with hundreds and hundreds of poems, short stories, and photos. Most of the photos were lost during the black period (he is working on a book of formerly banned poems tentatively called “The Black Period”). The poems in the Book of Real & Imaginary Girlfriends come from ideas mostly on his blog. The others are in response to the positive feedback Moctezuma immediately enjoyed. Once he started writing he found himself excelling in other areas of his life as well. He became a bartender, bought his own bar, and married his muse. Now he has his life in order and continues to share his daring porno-literary genre.

About The Author

 

 

What inspired you to write your first Novel? “My girlfriends and I were sitting around discussing our latest reads, all the perfect Cinderella type romance novels that are out there and how we would like to read something that more could relate to. I have been an avid reader since I was a child and love to write, so I decided to write something for us. A not so perfect love story; one that had a little humor, tied in some vampires, a little adult content, morally hard choices and was a satisfying read for all those hard working readers who want some good ole’ junk food for the brain when they come home after a long day at work.”

Raised in California she moved to Colorado to pursue her education and fell in love with the area as well as her now husband. After pushing through college class by class with a few maternity breaks in between, she graduated. Her four year degree took a bit longer to complete as life led her down a scenic route.

Though Kristina loved her art and literature classes in college she put that to the side in order to start her career in nursing. After establishing her career she felt something was missing. While she adores being a nurse she felt her artistic side was calling and started to pick up her writing and painting again, setting aside a few hours a day on her day’s off. After a period of time she found that her short story had grown into her first novel. Writing is a passion of hers and she feels the greatest achievement in her art is creating works that bring enjoyment to others.

She continues to reside in Colorado with her husband and children. Kristina is working on the next installment of the Lunar Eclipse Series.

Irrevocable Midnight (Lunar Eclipse Series, #03)

 

 

 

Freedom is something that is easily taken for granted, many never knowing what they have until it is stripped away. But not all hope is lost when second chances are given. As Sasha struggles to break free from her captivity to get back to the life she was seized from; she risks it all, including her precious humanity. Love has become worth fighting for, even if that means giving up everything that she is.

The ups and downs of love can be as rocky as the shores, but as the tides turn, Etienne finds that no matter how turbulent the seas, he’s not letting anything stand in the way of his new purpose in life; he must save Sasha, even if it means saving her from herself.

The saga continues as Sasha and Etienne are propelled forward through new family ties and into the line of fire of the most powerful moon of the year, the blood moon. As the cataclysm of the lunar eclipse unfolds, love finds a way to grow anew in the wake of dominant forces moving at a catastrophic speed.

Ever since she was a young girl, Abby Lane can’t resist the allure of a catshifter tribe forced to repress their beasts. On a trip to Africa, she discovers a coveted piece of information—the name the pride leader assumed when he left his home—and she traces his lineage to his descendent.

Utah Pearce can’t keep his gaze off the woman who slips into the bar every night. Though not his usual type, she brings out the possessive instinct in him, making him battle with himself as he tries to stay away.

Abby’s research never prepared her for the reality in front of her. The beast is waking, and Utah is changing in ways both exciting and terrifying. He is possessive and dominant, and when he finally claims her, neither of them will ever be the same.

Review

Abby Lane has an obsession, one that she’s had for most of her life. The legend of the Paka Watu, aka Cat People.She believed in this race of people so so much that she even went to Africa to research and search for them. What she found led her to Utah Pearce. Where Abby describes herself as bookish and plain, Utah is all things beautiful. He’s also unaware that he is a member of the Paka Watu. When he starts to really accept it, oh boy, hold onto your seats.

This was a good read for me except for one HUGE thing but I’ll get to that in a minute. Abby is a great heroine, she truly is. I loved her. Utah Pearce? Break me off a piece of that! Wow! He is truly an alpha male. If authors want to know how to write an alpha male, look no further than right here. Posessive, growly, strong, sexy and yes, a little bossy. Yum, mama likes! There’s a great deal of humor here also. OMG, when he kept having his friend pull the car over so he could drag Abby off for sex, hilarious.

Okay, now for my complaint. There similarities between this book and Lora Leigh’s Breed series were eerie. I felt like I’d already read this. It tainted the book for me. If you’ve never read Lora Leigh’s Breed series than this one is a sure fire winner!

Independent and high-spirited, Lady Portia Flagstaff has never been afraid to take a risk, especially if it involves excitement and danger. But this time, being kidnapped and sold into an Arab harem is the outcome of one risk too many. Now, in order to regain her freedom, she has to rely on the deliciously packaged Grayson Devlin, Viscount Blackwood, a man who despises her reckless ways—and stirs in her a thirst for passion.

After losing his mother and two siblings in a carriage accident years ago, Grayson Devlin promised Portia’s dying brother that he’d always watch over his wayward sister. But having to travel to Egypt to rescue the foolhardy girl has made his blood boil. Grayson already has his hands full trying to clear his best friend and fellow Libertine Scholar of a crime he didn’t commit. Worse still, his dashing rescue has unleashed an unforeseen and undesired consequence: marriage. Now it’s more than Portia he has to protect . . . it’s his battered heart.

Review

Lady Portia Flagstaff is approaching spinsterhood. She’s a bit of a thrill seeker, opinionated and free thinking woman. All of those things are frowned upon by the Ton. Women are supposed to be demure, and basically seen not heard. Portia is anything but those things. She has accepted that her turn downs of suitors have destined her to spinsterhood. She okay with it because she’s been in love with the same man since she was sixteen. The man in question grew up with her family and is her brother’s best friend. He’s also a rake of the highest order and sees her as a little sister.

Lord Grayson Devlin is a wonderful man to his friends and even his lovers. His bedroom reputation is the thing of legends among the Ton. He has five close friends that are like brothers to him. But guilt eats at him. He feels guilty because of things that happened during war. One friend was burned horrifically and his best friend died in his arms on the battlefield. He made a promise to look after his dead friend’s little sister. That sister is Portia and he feels anything but brotherly toward her. When she is unknowingly thrown into the deadly situation along with his fellow Libertine Scholars, he will stop at nothing to protect her. But can he protect her from himself?

I wanted to love this one. I’ve been waiting for 10 months for a great historical romance. This was an okay read but not great. To say I was disappointed is an understatement. I wanted more of the Ton, more of the mystery surrounding the Libertine Scholars and more love. I’m not done with this series though because I’ve got to solve the mystery. I also want to see how the other men in the group are floored by love.

Single mother.
Laid off factory worker.
Drug runner for the Heaven Hill Motorcycle Club.

When Denise Cunningham is served with foreclosure papers on her birthday it’s the last straw in a long line of bad luck. Sitting and crying about things has never been how she solved her problems, but this time she decides to do just that. A phone call interrupts her pity party and changes the course of her life forever.

Loyal brother.
Grease monkey mechanic.
Vice President of the Heaven Hill Motorcycle Club.

William Walker Jr., known as Liam to his club, needs a new recruit that is just naïve enough and desperate enough to do what he asks without question. When Denise Cunningham lands in his lap, he decides to hire her – not because he wants to, because he has to.

Neither are comfortable in their new roles, but he needs help and she can’t stand to lose anything else.

As bullets fly and a local Bowling Green, KY reporter works to bring the club down, Liam and Denise find themselves getting closer to one another. When the stakes get high and outside forces try to keep them away from each other, they have to decide if they really are meant to be.

Review

Denise is a single mother of twin 13 year olds. Recently laid off and in financial ruin, she picks up a shift at work for a coworker. She had no idea what that would lead to. Now she’s in over her head. She’s moving drugs to predetermined locations for the local MC. She don’t want to but apparently desperate times call for desperate measures. She has to keep a roof over their heads and food in their mouths, so she does what’s asked of her.

Liam is the VP of the local MC and not too bad of a guy. He’s good looking, built and seems to have somewhat of a conscience. He never wanted to involve Denise in club business but his dad, the President of the MC decided that she had to help. He sees her desperation but also her inner strength and it calls to him. The need to protect beats inside him. When Denise is threatened, he realizes that his need to protect her and hers is something more than he originally thought.

This is a decent start to a new MC series for me. It’s a little lighter than I like but again it was decent. The characters were well done, the suspense was a little abrupt with its ending but the sex was descriptive but there wasn’t near enough of it. To hang with the heavy hitters of MC, I think the author needs to step up her game a little bit more.Attractive woman reading a book

Review

Liv Michaels was always a bridesmaid but never a bride in high school. She was the quintessential nerd. Cute but still a nerd. She crushed on Vinny Stonetti for a long time, so when she got to tutor him, her heart was no longer safe. She knew her place with him, she just didn’t like it. Feeling overwhelmed and heartsick, she accepted being in the friend zone.

Vinny Stonetti was the son of a dead serviceman and a crack whore mother. He’s been the adult in his home for longer than he should’ve. He struggled with school work and ended up needing a tutor. Liv Michaels is nothing like the girls he spends time with but he likes her. He can talk to her and he’s interested in what she has to say. The two form a cute friendship but like all friendships, when you spend that much time together, friendships change. Their friendship becomes a first love relationship, complete with heavy make out sessions. They almost make love but because of Vinny’s self image issues, he passes on the opportunity. He then gets expelled and disappears from Liv’s life.

Now in modern day, Liv has the chance to land her dream job. To do that she has to write a story on an up and coming MMA fighter. Guess who it is! Vinny. As you can imagine, this isn’t what she wants to do. And when she has to do an even deeper story on him, she even more shaken. Because now she and Vinny have reconnected in all ways and she doesn’t want to hurt him.

Take old romantic feelings, current arousal, a crack addicted mother, thugs threatening you, a title fight, and a mystery of paternity, throw them all together and that’s what this book offers you. It was a decent read but Vinny’s almost Dom tendencies were a turn off for me. I enjoyed his alpha male ways but he took them too far for my tastes. I don’t know if my feelings of this genre are a product of the market being flooded with them or just me but I remember enjoying MMA romance much more in the past.
