This is a very dark, erotic interpretation of the story of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden and their Paradise Lost. It begins with Adam and Eve in a state of innocence. Through a series of increasingly lustful BDSM encounters with paranormal creatures such as Raphael, Lilith, Lucifer, and Michael, Eve falls into sin and takes her loving husband with her. Warning: This is a work of fiction that contains sexually explicit materials meant for those over the age of 18 and contains elements of dubious consent, dominant male, submissive female, and ménages.

 

Review

 

 

Bella continues to push the boundaries with her newest release, The Claiming of Eve. Set in the Garden of Eden, this book paints it in a new light, nothing like what you had envisioned it to be. The arc of the story is so irreverent, I don’t even know how to review it properly.

First, I would like to mention WHY I decided to read The Claiming of Eve. I saw a tweet that had a one-liner from the book: 

Eve shuddered as she felt his cock hit the golden apple that was still deep inside her and push it up against her very core.

My immediate reaction was, good god, I simply have to read this book.

As per her usual routine, Bella throws you into the midst of things right away. First, Eve is so horny that she is masturbating, and this was such a hot scene, I almost wanted to take notes. I mean the woman knows how to use both of her hands, very well. Then we get to see Eve being roughly (please be forewarned – VERY roughly) dominated by her husband (Adam) and an angel.

Her overstimulated flesh was almost beyond its breaking point.

After reading this scene, I’d have to say that’s an underestimation. By the way, in case you didn’t know how Eve came into existence, it’s through being fucked by Adam. What a reasonable version of her first minutes on earth!

He had pushed his hard cock back and forth deep inside her virgin pussy as she waited helplessly to cum into existence.

Once the two men are done with her, they just discard her, as she is only there for their pleasure, and nothing else. Poor Eve, feeling neglected, wanders off and runs into Lilith, who turns out to be Adam’s first wife (what?!?). The women have a very hot scene in the middle of the book, so hot that I was wishing a Lilith-type person had walked across my path, just so she could ravage me like she did Eve. After that, there is another scorching scene involving monster sex, so you’ve been forewarned (once again). Poor Eve gets taken by a serpent Lucifer, who uses all of his snake-related appendages to work her over. Very very rough dubcon. Just sayin’.

It seems as if pain is the key necessary to controlling your pussy, Eve.

There are seven apples involved, one of which is stuffed up Eve in a tweet that drew me to this book in the first place. Also, if food play is not your thing, this is your warning (jeez, how many warnings am I going to have here?).

The final scene was highly erotic. In an unexpected twist, Bella makes Adam bisexual, and there is a very rough (once again) threesome involving another angel, whose task is to send Adam and Eve away from Paradise. Before he does that, he takes rough advantage of both sinners. Oh dear god. So, this is the final forewarning: if MM is not your thing, walk right by this. But if I were you, I would still read this, just to marvel at Bella’s audacity. There are also some orgasm withdrawal elements here that will make you squirm. Oh, and rough toy play. And since they didn’t have sex toys back then, Bella used her unstoppable imagination: the hilt of a sword, shoved up … that’s right, you guessed it. Also, umm, double anal. Good god. Is there any boundary that Bella will not push?

I cannot say enough about this book. Bella’s usual style, as always, transported me. It’s almost like a chanting style, where you just want to keep reading, it’s hard to explain. The descriptions of rough play were so vivid that I caught myself holding my breath more than once. But maybe that’s Bella’s intention – to heighten your arousal by slightly suffocating you. Worked well for me. Holy hell. I’m afraid I’m getting so addicted to Bella that I might stop reading anyone else.

Don’t fight the pain, sweet Eve. Your pleasure will be all the more intense once you submit.

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.

Review~Inferno by Kathryn Kelly

Title: Inferno 
Series: Phoenix Rising Rock Band #1
Author: Kathryn Kelly
Genre: Contemporary Romance with taboo elements
Pages: Unknown
Heat Level: 5 out of 5 flames
Overall Star Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
Reviewed by Naughty Book Snitch Kay

I’m a rocker with the eyes of the world on me. Waiting for my triumph or my downfall…just waiting. Most of my life is in my hands. My destiny? That’s another story. My destiny isn’t as debt free.

My band, Phoenix Rising, arrives in Houston to cut a new album. Before we perform our first concert in the city and I choose my groupies of the night, I’m thrust into debauchery. Sleeping with a gorgeous woman twenty years older than me has its perks, especially when her husband orchestrated the encounter and eagerly watches. To me, performing is performing. If a man wants to share his wife, who am I to stop him?

Unfortunately for me, I don’t make a clean getaway as I leave the McCall mansion. Georgie, their sixteen-year-old daughter, is in the midst of her own intrigue, sneaking home in the middle of the night after an evening of drugs and sex with her older brother’s best friend. In her, I see me. She’s lost and drifting. Her hedonistic parents insist she’s old enough to make her own decisions. Instead of time and love, they give her money and things.

I’m a twenty-five-year old international superstar and I know better. I’m cocky and arrogant. I know it so I own it. Somehow, I’ve always bested the fates. I have all to lose—my reputation, my career, and my freedom. Her mother’s jealousy forces my hand and I take Georgie on the tour.

This is our story and our secret relationship and the destruction of my life. You know the adage about secrets? Three may keep a secret, if two of them are dead. Wise words from a wise man. If only I had listened. Secrets have a way of revealing themselves in the harshest way.

Review

I was asked to beta read this book and being a huge Kathryn Kelly fan, I was honored. There is some taboo element to this book in my opinion due to the heroine’s age. That’s my disclaimer and Kathryn Kelly and I have discussed this.

Phoenix Rising is a very popular rock band. Like many rock bands, not all the members of the band get along. This story is the beginning of the love affair of Sloane Mason and Georgie McCall. Georgie is a huge fan of the band and Sloane in particular. Their first meeting, Sloane notices how young she is but also how beautiful. When he finds out that she’s sixteen, he knows that his fascination and attraction can go no further. But it does. The second time he sees her, he’s leaving her home after having just had sex with her mother while her father watched. Sloane lives for debauchery in all it’s forms. He’s a former addict who’s living drug free for the moment.

Georgie is a little girl lost. She’s in a kind of relationship with her brother’s best friend who trades drugs with her for oral sex. She’s ignored and down right neglected by her pervert parents. Her dad spends money on her but no time with her. He’s too busy screwing younger women with his wife. Her mother is a selfish woman jealous of her daughter’s age and beauty. So Georgie looks for attention where she can find it and anything to numb the pain of her existence. In Sloane, she sees her savior of sorts. Falling in love with him was easy. Their life would be hell if they acted on their mutual attraction.

This is a very dark story. You are swimming in a world full of privilege, debauchery, drug abuse and child abuse. There were difficult moments for me because of this abuse. Sloane is a first class man-whore with just a touch of conscience. Georgie is a very troubled girl looking for love in all the wrong places and unfortunately finding it. Your heart breaks for her over and over. Despite all the things in this book that raised my “ick” factor, I was hooked. I had to find out where it was going and what would happen when I got there. There is a second book and yes, this one ends on a cliffhanger but I’m all in now. I have to know if there will be an HEA for Sloane or Georgie and will it be with them together? Kathryn Kelly has hooked me to another one of her series and I’m thrilled about it!

Synopsis

 

 

This is not your typical love story. The questionable ‘heroine’ is not the victim, she’s the bad-guy you’ll probably love and hate… Depends on your sanity.

Asher stalked her because there was something about her that was undeniable, she’s a mystery and he’s drawn to her like nothing else, but nothing could prepare him for what he found.

Zel makes people’s problems go away. She’s cynical, aggressive and has no regard for human life, but when Asher crosses her path he becomes a problem she couldn’t possibly ‘make go away’ as easy as the others.

Asher finds himself in way too deep when the lives of everyone he loves is threatened and he has to play the willing captive to keep them safe.

Zel has her own problems, someone wants her dead and they’re not shy about it. They both won’t be safe until she gets to them first.

Secrets unfold, lies are told and sacrifices are made. Consequences be damned.

Blog Tour ~ Asylum by Lily White

 

 

Genre: Erotic/Psychological Thriller
Cover Designer: Cover Me, Darling

 

 

 

 

 

 

Words are funny things.

Their meaning, the pictures they paint in the minds of those that hear them: they’re not always the same and to me at least, that makes them meaningless.

Take for instance the phrase ‘black widow’. Those words conjure the image of a spider, an eight-legged creature with the red imprint of an hourglass on its abdomen.

However, instead of speaking of an arachnid, of the resident of a spindly and dew-laden web, the people who whisper those words are talking about something much different.

They’re talking about me.

From what I’m told, I’m called the Black Widow because no man I’ve ever loved has survived.

Yet, I have no memory of any of it.

My new home leads me to the definition of another vague and meaningless word.

It’s a place where I’m supposed to seek refuge.

A place of retreat and security.

It’s a place where I’m supposed to be kept safe because I’m sick.

But the definition for this place is wrong and the word becomes meaningless when you’re tucked away and made silent by drugs and pretty white jackets.

My name is Alexandra Sutton and this is the story of what happened when I was imprisoned inside an Asylum.

 

 

 

 

I couldn’t contain my anger. “I didn’t kill anybody! I don’t even know who those men are…”

“Do not raise your voice with me, Ms. Sutton. I’ve allowed your quirks in behavior thus far, but I’m growing tired of your insubordination. While under my care you will learn to control your outbursts or else you will be restrained both physically and chemically, if necessary.”

“Through drugs, you mean. You’ll dope me up to a point where I can’t fight back.”

“If that’s what I must do. Like I’ve said, I don’t prefer that type of restraint, but in certain cases, it can’t be avoided.”

Standing from his chair, he rounded the desk to stand in front of me. I craned my neck to look up at him, my muscles tightening painfully with anger and the refusal to believe that I’d done any of the things of which I’d been accused. It wasn’t until he was close enough to touch me that the notes of his cologne wafted beneath my nose – something haunting and exotic, masculine and earthy. I shivered at the smell, looking away from him and grasping my hands together in my lap to the point where my short fingernails dug into my skin.

“Look at me, Ms. Sutton.”

I did as I was told because there was no point in fighting back. A slow roll of recognition penetrated my thoughts, the abysmal circumstances of this place, the futility and harrowing truth that I was under their control. Any hint of rebellion and I would be dosed into compliance, drooling on myself while nodding my approval of whatever horrible thing they had planned. They stripped you of your strength, your voice, your entire being, and replaced it with the structure implicit to an institution for the insane.

“You are my patient and as such, you are under my control and also my protection. I will not hurt you in any way. My only job is to help you. However, any rebellion on your part will be met with equal force. Do you understand?”

“Yes sir.” I spit out the words, angry that I was answering to a man I didn’t even know.

“That’s a good girl.”

Three. This is my number. It’s the exact sum of reasons I continue to go on.

One: To strengthen my body. Make it strong. Make it a machine. Make it so that what happened before can never, ever, happen again.

Two: To help others find their own strength so that what happened to me, what happened to my Olivia, doesn’t happen to them.

And three: My favorite—to find the bastards that took my life away and make them pay for what they did.

This is what my life is now. A dead man, inside a scarred body, living only for revenge.

 

 

Review

 

 

This novella that spawns the series packed quite a punch for me. This always surprises me when the book was a freebie. So, needless to say, I was excited when I finished it. Yes, it’s a cliffhanger of sorts but just that you know it continues.

You have a man, who is scarred inside and out. He and his girlfriend were victims of a random act of horrific violence that led to the girlfriend’s rape and death. He was left severely beaten and for dead. A part of him wishes he would’ve died also. Now, as he strengthens his body, he teaches women self defense so that they can defend themselves should someone try to hurt them.

You also have a woman, who was sexually active in high school and was raped by a love interest. That incident altered the course of her life. It has led to a string of one night stands in bars. Mostly, the bathroom, which makes me shudder. She has to control the trysts as she seeks her release.

This was a powerful start to what I hope will be a great series of novellas. The gritty scenes were emotional and sad. I can’t wait to get back into the series.

Sure, you got glimpses of the relationship in Braxxon and Winter’s book but this one is all about them. There are times that you get a little repetition from the previous book but it didn’t detract from the story at all for me. I wanted a book about them even knowing the outcome and when I got it, I was gutted all over again.

You felt the joy, love, fear, pain and overwhelming loss that I expected. The journey to that loss though was worth it. There was some frustration at Lana for her indecisiveness of their relationship but when she came to terms with that during the last minutes of her life, I was in tears. Crystal Spears did a wonderful job with a tragic story that just again proves to me that she is indeed one of my five badass biker babes. I hope that down the road, Pyro gets his HEA because Lana would want for him what she never got for herself…to always feel.

Words are funny things.

Their meaning, the pictures they paint in the minds of those that hear them: they’re not always the same and to me at least, that makes them meaningless.

Take for instance the phrase ‘black widow’. Those words conjure the image of a spider, an eight-legged creature with the red imprint of an hourglass on its abdomen.

However, instead of speaking of an arachnid, of the resident of a spindly and dew-laden web, the people who whisper those words are talking about something much different.

They’re talking about me.

From what I’m told, I’m called the Black Widow because no man I’ve ever loved has survived.

Yet, I have no memory of any of it.

My new home leads me to the definition of another vague and meaningless word.

It’s a place where I’m supposed to seek refuge.

A place of retreat and security.

It’s a place where I’m supposed to be kept safe because I’m sick.

But the definition for this place is wrong and the word becomes meaningless when you’re tucked away and made silent by drugs and pretty white jackets.

My name is Alexandra Sutton and this is the story of what happened when I was imprisoned inside an Asylum.

Lily White is a dark writer who likes to dabble on the taboo side of eroticism. Most of the time she can be found wandering around aimlessly while her mind is stuck in some twisted power play between two characters in her head. You may recognize her in public by the confused expression, random mumbling, and occasional giggle while thinking up a scene. Lily’s favorite things in life are reading, thinking about reading, buying books for reading….and writing. Her other secret pleasure is meeting with her plot editor in public to discuss her books and watching the shocked expressions of the people around her that don’t realize she’s talking about a book. When Lily is not reading, writing, wandering or freaking out innocent bystanders, she’s sleeping.
