After years of alcohol and promiscuous sex, Detective Eleanor Silver is not the cop or the person she wanted to be. New doors and new worlds open up when the murders of sexually dominant women, involved in the world of BDSM, lead her to Dr. Anderson Wells. A psychologist and sexual submissive, Anderson offers to be her guide. They soon find themselves exploring on more intimate levels. In her, He sees the strong and forceful woman he craves. She sees in him a man strong enough to surrender control.

As he escorts her into the world of kink parties, leather corsets and safe words she flourishes, becoming the kind of woman she never dreamed. Even as they become closer, both as lovers and as Dominant and submissive, new murders and his own lie make Anderson a suspect and then the target of a cop looking to clear his own name.

Events and passions collide with bite marks, pretty underwear and murder in a world where cops may be killers and lovers may hold whips. Eleanor Silver has to let go of her pain to claim for herself the life she wants and risk everything to save the man she loves.

 

 

 

 

I received a copy of this book via the author in exchange for an honest review.

 

 

“Killing someone is hard work. Harder than it looks in the movies.”

 

 

I loved this book! I’ve been struggling with a bit of burn out lately and this is exactly what I needed. This book has an amazing story with a bit of erotic romance and BDSM elements all throughout. In my opinion this has a perfect mix of murder, mystery, suspense and romance.

While investigating a possible serial killer, Detective Silver also discovers a lot about herself and what makes her happy. She meets Anderson through a mutual friend and he is Silver’s “inside guy” that introduces her to the world of BDSM so she can catch a killer that is hiding in that world. This is where Silver starts to understand more about herself and finally figures out what has been missing in her life.

 

 

“If I wanted him, I had to make it happen. My responsibility. If I want to be happy, it’s my choice to make. It’s easy to say, but it is not just saying, today I’m going to be happy. You have to risk what you have this moment for what you want in the next.”

 

 

There were times when Silver was getting on my nerves. She seemed to be a taker and not a giver when it came to Anderson. I get it that the BDSM lifestyle is new to her and this is exactly what men used to do with her, but you don’t have to turn around and do the same thing to someone else, unless that is what they want. Which it’s not what Anderson wanted. However, I really liked Silver’s overall character as well as Anderson and all the other side characters. I think they were well developed and believable.

I really love all the local references. I was born and raised in Kansas City and still live here. KCK is my old stomping grounds and that is where all my family lives. Overland park, KCK, Northland, downtown area, just everywhere! I especially loved the reference to Missie B’s, Hayes Hamburgers and several other local places. I use to go to Missie B’s a lot in my 20’s. I loved the Drag shows! All I remember is Flo. Probably because my sisters exgirlfriend use to bounce there. One thing I don’t know is, where in the world are all the dungeons? But anyway… back to the story.

This was a fantastic mystery and it kept me guessing until it was time for me to know who, what, when and why! There were moments that made me feel like my heart was going to beat out of my chest and I couldn’t read fast enough to find out what was going to happen next. I loved it!!

The sex was excellent! But my favorite part was at about 14% in when Silver was “like a cat marking her territory”. YAAASSSS! You go girl!!

 

 

description

 

 

I also liked the first meeting that Silver and Anderson had. I really hate anything to do with feet, so this is pretty significant for me. Very well done! Bravo! Actually all the sex scenes are really good and erotic.

 

 

description

 

 

So why 4.5 stars? Only because there were moments in the middle of this book that seemed to drag on. I couldn’t pinpoint which one, but sometimes I was tired of hearing about Silver’s internal struggle with drinking and not knowing who she is and how she didn’t want Anderson around unless she wanted to use him for something. All I really wanted was to read more about the investigation.

One thing I don’t like (but has nothing to do with my rating) while reading any book is the overuse of the word “passion”. It’s worse than the word “moist. The word Passion is not overused in this book and is probably only used 3 or 4 times. The reason I bring it up is because I think that word gets overused so much that it really stands out to me when I read. I have come to hate that word and anytime I hear it, I cringe. I’m not a wordsmithing word wizard so I have no idea what you would use in its place. That is just my personal opinion and issue. I’m sure 99.9% of the people out there are fine with that word, I’m just the weird one.

Overall this entire book is a great read and will keep you glued to the pages. There is a reason why this book won the BDSM Writers Con Golden Flogger Award for Best BDSM book of the year. I loved it 🙂

My favorite quote:

 

“Do you know what the difference is between sexy and kinky? Sexy is when you use a feather while making love. Kinky is when you use the whole chicken.”

Drury Jamison is not a bestselling author, yet. But he believes hard work will prevail. He has been writing since he could read beginning with, what we now call fan fiction, stories about favorite DC Comics heros. Since then he gave all his attention to the story at the expense of the rules making rewriting very important.

Born an Army brat he finally settled and came to call the Missouri Ozarks home. While raising wonderful kids and failing at everything else, he wrote screenplays, television scripts, advertising copy and filthy limericks. After many twists, and multiple once-in-a-lifetime life changing events, he returned to work on the short stories and novels he loved best.

Should she agree to be spanked? Just the once? It would all be in the name of research, of course…

When journalist Kirsten Anderson is told by her boss to write an article about BDSM she’s extremely reluctant. She tries to get out of it by claiming she doesn’t know anything about BDSM, but that isn’t strictly true. None of her colleagues know about her kinky past and she has no intention of letting them find out, but she isn’t in a position to turn the assignment down either.

When her friend Chloe sees how stressed Kirsten is about the article she offers to take her to a BDSM club to find some inspiration. Kirsten agrees, but doesn’t mention that she used to go to this particular club regularly until a bad experience made her turn her back on the kinky lifestyle three years earlier.

Returning to the club and watching the scenes around them reminds Kirsten what she’s missing. She’s envious of the girl being flogged by her Dom nearby, but she’s so busy denying it that she doesn’t recognize the burning need inside her. Until she spots Eddie—a colleague she’s got a secret crush on—working in the club as a Dungeon Monitor.

Eddie reintroduces her to the joys of Dominance and submission, the delicious sting of a spanking and the incredible sex that follows. But is she strong enough to conquer her fears?

Review

 

 

Pretty good story. The sex scenes were actually different and really good. The first interaction that Eric and Kirsten have made my insides quiver and want to go home and do the exact same thing with my husband. There doesn’t have to be sexual intercourse for it to be the sexy and panty melting hot. Sometimes the words spoken are enough to get the juices flowing. Maybe a little hair pulling too 😉 There is intercourse later, but that first scene was more memorable for me.

 

 

“I was just about managing to hold onto my equilibrium when he reached up and took a handful of my hair. He didn’t exactly pull it, but he held it firmly, keeping my head in place, and I melted like a ragdoll kitten. I knew he had me then. So did he.”

 

 

The storyline is good but seemed to end very abruptly. I think there is a lot more story there, but it felt rushed. There is an epilogue, but it didn’t really give too much info and really could have just been another chapter.

Overall it’s a wonderful story. One thing I would like to point out and I think is VERY important is that the main character didn’t throw her former Dom under a bus. Kirsten had a bad experience and took equal responsibility in the turn out. This is a breath of fresh air and I just love the way it’s written. Kirsten is on a journey she had no intention of taking, to reawaken a piece of her soul that she didn’t realize she missed so much.

About the Author

 

 

BB Blaque buttonI live the BDSM lifestyle, as a submissive, and have for many years, so when I write it comes from knowledge of the subject matter. I have also been involved, in some way, with bikers, and motorcycle clubs since I was a teenager. What I write doesn’t come from research; it comes from living the lifestyles and writing what I know.

I write beautifully flawed characters who ultimately find, perfection is not a prerequisite. Our flaws are what make us unique and some flaws complement each other better than others.

I love BDSM (Male dominant/female submissive.) There’s something that just feels so right about a man wearing the pants (especially when he wears them well and fills them nicely.) I am interested in the psychological aspects of relationships in general and especially when there is a power-exchange dynamic.

My world would stopping revolving if not for heavy rock music (and the wonderfully talented people who make it.) Music and it’s makers will definitely be strongly visible in my work. I listen, I remember…I listen, I’m inspired…to write…to love…to fuck…to live.

I hope I will weave these things together in ways people will enjoy and connect with.

A Valkyrie discovers more than love when she meets a dangerous, hunky biker!

Raven is haunted by the passionate, one-night stand she had with Magnus. He was dangerous and handsome, an outlaw biker that swept Raven off her feet. She knows Magnus is so wrong for her, but she can’t keep the bad boy out of her thoughts.

When Magnus tracks her down, Raven has to make a choice? Can she love the dangerous biker, or should she listen to her fears and find a safer guy? Her heart yearns for Magnus and the passion of his words.

But Raven’s choice will change both her and Magnus’s life. She is a Valkyrie, and her love will unleash the wolf slumbering inside of Magnus. When a frost troll attacks Raven, and she is plunged into the snowy wastelands of Utgard, she will learn if she made the right choice.

Is Magnus too dangerous to love? Or has Raven doomed herself and Magnus to a snowy fate?

Review

Those who know me (and know my RL name for reviewing as well!) know I do NOT give out five stars lightly. Matter of fact, it’s very, very rare as even when I rate a book 9 out of 10 something or anothers, I round down to 4 stars on Amazon or Goodreads. Those who also read my blog know that I’ve reviewed a couple of Renee’s other books, and while for the most part I think they are passable (with some great ideas!), I have not rated them fantastically.

That is going to change. This really is a five star book. I waffled for a long time on if it would be four or five, but my deciding factor was, “Am I going to read it again?” and when the answer was, “Yes, when the second book comes out, I will” I knew it was five stars.

All that being said, I want to say that I have enjoyed watching Renee’s writing improve by leaps and bounds. She’s really come a long way with experience, and I think it’s fantastic. Not only that, when the next book in this series comes out, I’ll be right there with my grabby hands clutching at it. AND it’s made me want to go back and finished her Passion Moon series. I could drop mic there and walk away, but that’s not why we’re at the Naughty Book Snitch site, is it? Of course not!

The plot is not necessarily straight forward, but it is pretty linear… but that’s just fine because it sets up the whole rest of the series like a good first book should do. In the prologue, Raven met and had a torrid affair with Magnus, then left the next day. Magnus finds her barrista nametag and tracks her down to Seattle after having a fight with another biker (Talon) for popping him in the face during the prologue protecting Raven. Raven, in the meanwhile, is kicking herself for leaving without leaving any info, and girls? Haven’t we all done that before?

Now, while Raven is kicking herself, and trying to convince herself that no, it didn’t mean anything, her regulars (which cracked me up, two thumbs up for good secondary characters! Even if I recognized Owen right away…) advise her on making her “Choice”, and you might as well capitalize it. That was the one thing that made me waffle for so long on giving it five stars right away. The “Choice” is presented to us indicating that Raven will only ever have one love… EVER! I know it’s romance, but… no. Now, it’s actually for OTHER reasons not the romance ones why it’s important (nope, not spoiling anything!), but at this point Raven doesn’t know about any paranormal stuff, so it’s presented as “Yeah, you only get to pick ONE BOYFRIEND EVER so pick good.”

Magnus comes and copies a poem for her, which was sort of an ‘awwww’ moment (even though it was copied, and not an original, but now I’m just getting picky!), and she agrees to go out with him. They go out… and there’s where I stop the summation. Why? INTERESTING STUFF HAPPENS! Not just sex–although that was good and hot, yummy showers–BUT REALLY FUCKING COOL SHIT!

Kind of like that, except with snow. And fire. And… other things!

So, how was the romance? The romance, like the characters, were very satisfying. Now, usually I bang on “Ugh, God, they’ve known each other for what, two minutes?!” but the book itself is drawn out long enough that it feels right, and that’s really important in romance. Renee hit all the beats. On top of that, it’s made clear that it’s an infatuation in the beginning, but afterwards they start facing trials together… which instantly bonds people. Just ask soldiers how close they are to their buddies. I think in this case? There’s a reason for the immediate bond, and it’s done very… VERY well. Now, whether that will hold up to scrutiny is another thing, but that’s for the future!

What hooked me was the Norse mythology. For those who know their stuff, it’s accurate. Bent, of course, for fantasy and the like but the basis of it? All very well done. I can tell the author did her research, and I appreciate it! There’s not much sex in it, but that’s quite alright. The story doesn’t need it. When it comes into the story though, it’s well done and steamy. I give this paranormal romance 10 out of 10 flaming swords.

PS: We want more of this guy. Yes, we do. Because yeah, the sex between Magnus and Raven was hot? But the talking scene between Raven and Loki was on fire.

Raven is taken on a wild, passionate ride by a bad boy biker!

Raven, a young woman on the verge of discovering her destiny, is having a bad night. On a foggy night, all alone, her car mysteriously dies. When Magnus, a hunky biker, offers to help her, Raven lets her fear make her decisions.

Instead, she enters the nearby bar to find help. But Talon, a rival biker, wants to get to know Raven better. When she objects, Magnus comes to her rescue. Raven is taken for a wild ride on the back of Magnus’s bike as they flee Talon and his angry friends.

Passion burns in the night. Drunk on the exhilaration of the ride, Raven looses herself in Magnsus’s strong arms.

The fast-paced, exhilarating prologue to the Valkyrie’s Passion. Will Raven discover love in the arms of her bad-boy, werewolf biker? Or will fear keep her from her desire?

Review

I received an advance copy of this, as Renee was very generous in sharing it with me since I had reviewed a couple of her other books. The basic story is that Raven, a very tall blonde gorgeous gal, is driving home when her car breaks down. A biker, Magnus, offers to help her out. When she enters in a biker bar, he comes to her rescue again, saving her and taking her away!

The first thing I want to say about this is that I’ve read three of Renee’s books now: her first one, one in the middle, and now this prologue of her latest work. I have seen her writing get better by leaps and bounds, and while some of the descriptions are pretty generic, they are standard for the romance/erotic romance genre. There are some tropes here which made me facepalm… but again, they are standard for the genre. I am absolutely not going to fault the writer for that, because she is giving people what they want. I will discuss them a little bit here, just to sort of bring awareness to them.

There’s two big ones. The first was OMG BIKERS ARE EBILSSS! I call this the “Sons of Anarchy” effect.

Sort of like that, except not nearly as cool as Ghost Rider. Not even Nick Cage’s Ghost Rider. Just like 99% of people who aren’t criminals, 99% of bikers are just dudes who belong to a club. However! That being said, there are bad pockets, and I just assumed she ran into one of those strictly less than legal clubs. No big deal.

The second trope is that of the “Gently Used Heroine”. Raven has had two lovers, neither of which made her come. She could barely come while masturbating! Again, this is a standard trope of romance, and weirdly of paranormal books with female protagonists. (I don’t get it either.)

I know women want to be swept off of their feet, but why can’t they have sex and enjoy it? Romance writers, I beg you! She doesn’t have to be uber experienced, and she doesn’t necessarily have to have had great experiences all the time, but what’s wrong with having a woman want to fuck and have some experience at it? Just to be clear, I am not dinging the book for this–it’s standard in romance. I’m just using this opportunity to ask politely to have some hot experienced women for the lead for a change.

The sex itself was alright. It was very detailed, but I think sometimes the author tripped over her descriptions just a bit. There was one point where Magnus was licking Raven’s nipples, and it seemed as though his stubble was being described as pink and hard. I had a chuckle and had to reread that a bit to understand it was just a badly placed adjective. Otherwise, it really sounds like Magnus knows what he’s doing, if you know what I mean!

The prose was pretty clean, though there were a couple of confusing descriptions/transitions. Nothing major. What was best about this book was the background stuff on the Norse gods. When I heard about this book, I was interested right away because I love Norse mythology. It was woven into the background, giving us a teaser of things to come, and it was very well done, and very well written. I could tell the author did her research, and while the story is pretty run of the mill (so far! It IS just a prologue) and would be worthy of 3 stars-ish or so, the time, effort, smooth writing, clean prose, and excellent research bumped it up to 4 stars. I do really want to see where this series is going, and I would beg the author to make Raven kick ass later down the line.

I give this 8 mistletoe javelins out of 10. It’s well worth the read, and if you enjoy it, I think this series may be right up your alley. We’ll see with #1!

Drawn to beautiful Bohemia Beach to prove herself as an artist, potter Sloane Abbey finds more than she bargained for: Alex Alwend, a sexy writer whose wealth is as mysterious as his past. His magnetic allure draws Sloane into a whirlwind of passion unlike anything she’s ever known. It’s scary to be wanted so much after growing up as the invisible child in her strict family, but she finds herself reveling in Alex’s dark needs – and haunted by his melancholy.

As Sloane struggles to make a new life among the dynamic artists of Bohemia Beach – and faces a devious foe at the famous art school – she learns Alex’s painful secret. Can their fiery obsession transcend his anguish and lead her to the life and the love she desires?

This is the first novel in the Bohemia Beach series, each a steamy standalone romance set among a circle of young artists in the enchanting Florida city they call home.

Review

I’ve said that romance isn’t my preferred genre, and this is true. However, it does not mean I haven’t read romance. I’ve read probably over a thousand romances. When I was growing up, all we did was read. I would run out of books, and pick up my mom’s… which were all romances. So, like the opera, even though it isn’t a preferred genre, I’ve grown to appreciate a good romance over the years.

This is an OK romance. It hits all the beats, and it’s written well. The writer is actually quite gifted, and I can tell she really loves ceramics. And blowjobs. But then, who doesn’t like a good blowjob?

The story is pretty much as it is in the summary, Sloane moves to Bohemia Beach to go to an art school, and meets reluctant rich man blocked writer Alex. He’s handsome, rich, charming, witty, and… maybe a serial killer? I don’t know… it just seems to me that every psychological thriller book starts out exactly the same as a romance novel. I might be reading too many horror books lately.

At any rate, Sloane is smitten! She and Alex begin a whirlwind affair… and that’s pretty much it. There’s no obstacles to the relationship which aren’t solved quickly, misunderstandings are talked about more or less swiftly, and there’s where my adoration of the book runs out. It’s all too… pleasant? There is a part where I thought there might have been a love triangle… but no. There was a part where Sloane was put into danger… but she was first “saved”, and then saved herself. It just… it was a pleasant, light read. This isn’t bad! It’s just lacking that little extra something that would make the book stand out.

The sex was decent, and there was a lot of it. I was actually rather envious at how often there was sex. At one point Sloane asks if Alex is going to have sex with her on every piece of furniture he owns, and his reply? “I hope so, I have a lot of furniture.” If only my husband and I could go at that pace!

It was a solid, light read with some fun sexy times. Nothing heavy, nothing surprising, but nothing that made it stand out either. I give it a respectable seven Deep One ceramics out of ten.

I was given a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

“This is not a love story. This is the story of the hunger inside of me which must be fed before it consumes me entirely…”

After a chance encounter with a handsome stranger introduces her to The Tower, an institution that trains women in submission, Janie McClusky is irresistibly drawn to the place. But admittance comes at a price, and soon enough Janie is utterly bare and fully on display, blushing crimson as the men at The Tower thoroughly explore her body, bringing her pain, pleasure, and shame as they see fit.

As Janie’s training begins, there is one man among the group who seems to know her own needs better than she does, and before long she finds herself yearning and even begging for his touch. But if she relinquishes control completely to this captivating stranger and allows him to break down her remaining defences, will there be any coming back at all?

Publisher’s Note: Submission at The Tower is an erotic novel that includes spankings, sexual scenes, extensive BDSM content, exhibitionism, anal play, and more. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.

 

 

Review

 

 

“This is not a love story. This is my story; the story of my base, complicated needs and how I intend to satisfy them.”

 

 

I love that quote, but I think the ‘not a love story’ may not be entirely true. Janie McClusky is on a mission to finally fulfill this all consuming hunger that’s been inside of her. A chance run-in with a handsome stranger and a card that reads….

“The Tower.
Consensual Female Surrender”

Is all she needs to set her journey of submission into motion.

 

 

Janie goes to The Tower for a trial or an audition to see if this is something that she will want to pursue and to see if the men of The Tower will accept and train her. Janie is submissive to the core. She knows this and needs to fulfill this deep seeded need down into her soul. This group of men may end up changing her life forever.

 

 

“While you’re here, you belong to me and to every other man in this room.”

 

 

Submission at The Tower

 

 

Once Janie is introduced to the men of The Tower, there is one man in particular that Janie has a connection with. He is not completely immune to Janie and also has a strong pull and unexpected desire towards her.

I don’t really want to tell you too much more because I don’t want to spoil anything for you. Just buy the book. If you love stories about self discovery, power exchange relationships, BDSM and hot and steamy erotic sex then you’ll love this book. The writing style is exquisite and flows really well. Just when you think the story might be coming to an end, you are actually plunged a little further into this erotica world. All I have to say is… “lost property box”. Holy hell! I want to do that… with him!

I’ve gotta mention the sex. Oh my… I think I may be blushing a little right now just writing this. “It’s Hot” does not accurately describe the level of hotness. I did occasionally get some butterfly flips in my belly. However, he (who you will figure out soon enough) didn’t eat her pussy until really late in the book. Not really that big of a deal because ALL the other stuff he did more than made up for it. But I do love a good clit Master. Mmmm 😉

 

 

“Fuck, I want to do you, right here and right now, little one,” he growls into my face. “I want to possess you and make you mine.”

What I didn’t care for is that Janie is a bit of a cry baby. I mean, I get it that this is a life changing experience and she is seriously riding front row on her emotional roller coaster. I’m not saying that I probably wouldn’t do the same thing if I was her, but I feel that she can cry at the drop of a clothes pin and the way she uses avocado felt like a weak and wrong moment to me. I get it… it’s her journey.

Overall, this is a very good read and I would recommend this to anyone who likes BDSM erotic romance. This is my first Felicity Brandon book and most definitely will not be my last. I’m very interested in some of the side characters too. Are they going to get their own stories or are they going to become a bigger part of the main story? I’m very intrigued and can’t wait to read more to find out where Janie’s story takes us.

 

 

Here are some of my favorite quotes:

“Now I’m going to fuck your beautiful face, number sixteen,” he says above me, his voice like thunder over my head. “Don’t try to fight me…”

 

“I will master you in every way and you will be laid open wide to me. I will know you in a way that no other man – in fact no other person – has ever known you before.”

 

“Most women who choose to submit are strong-willed and intelligent. Our job is less about controlling them and more about inspiring them to serve.”

 

“This is who I am – at least this is one part of me – and I am tired of repressing her. I am tired of being denied.”

 

“…while you’re still convulsing at my touch, I am going to fuck you hard into this mattress. Do you understand?”

Review~Ridge by Adriane Leigh

Title: Ridge 
Series: Wild #2
Author: Adriane Leigh
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Pages: 241
Heat Level: 4 out of 4 flames
Overall Star Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
Reviewed by Naughty Book Snitch Kay

Sometimes doing the wrong thing feels so right…

I’m a player. I’m an asshole. I’m someone you should stay away from.

I have demons.
I’ve made mistakes.
And the biggest can’t be taken back.

I’ve gone to hell and back in twenty-nine years and I’m only now coming to terms with moving forward, righting my wrongs, and making amends. Except not everyone deserves forgiveness. Sometimes the damage done is beyond repair.
Everyday is exactly the same. I focus on the pain, in the quest to feel and forget, but I remember everything. When I close my eyes the darkness encroaches and some days it feels like the things that kill me are the things that make me feel alive.

Review

This is the second story in the Wild series. It’s about Ridge. Ridge is a man that has drowned his sorrows over the loss of his parents with crime, drugs and whoring. The story is also a love triangle of sorts. See, Ridge’s love of his life is Mia. His brother’s ex-fiance, Mia. Not when he slept with her though. Mia and Wild were still a couple when it happened. Total dick move, pun intended. Ridge got himself clean with Mia’s help. He feels in order to reconcile with his brother, he needs to break up with Mia. So he does.

What I liked about the story:

The way it sucked you in.

His dirty mouth.

What I didn’t like was:

He’s a repeat cheater.

What he did to his brother.

What Mia did to his brother.

Ridge is weak.

Ridge is a user.

The way he treated Amy, who only wanted to love him.

The way he treated Mia.

His total lack of respect for the sanctity of marriage and relationships.

Despite, all of the above dislikes, I had to see how it all ended up. Will I go on in the series? No. Too much cheating for me. It’s not sex. Ever.

Review~Wild by Adriane Leigh

Title: Wild 
Series: Wild #1
Author: Adriane Leigh
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Pages: 191
Heat Level: 4 out of 4 flames
Overall Star Rating: 3 out of 5 stars
Reviewed by Naughty Book Snitch Kay

An independent woman, a controlling man, and one wild one-night stand…

Kat Kennedy moved to the rugged coast of Maine to start a new life, but encountered much more than she bargained for in dark, dangerous, and seductive Lane Wild.

Desire and temptation smolder before she succumbs to her darkest fantasies with the captivating stranger. She doesn’t expect to see him again after an explosive one-night stand leaves her breathless and craving more, but just like lightning in the darkness, he shows up in her life at the most unpredictable moments.

A sensual game of cat and mouse ensues before the attraction between them reaches a fever pitch—the magnetism combustible, the sexual tension nearly unbearable—and Kat finally abandons inhibition and explores the cunning, selfish, and sexual side of a world she’s never known.

They have the perfect non-relationship—passion-fueled nights with no strings attached—until life gets real and the past and present collide in a dangerous storm of lust and obsession.

Review

Wild is a novella length story about a small town guy with a filthy mouth, family issues and a need to control. It’s also about a woman on the run with a potentially deadly secret. When Wild sets his sights on Kat, watch out.

What I liked about the story:

Wild’s very filthy mouth-loved it!

Wild’s all in attitude about Kat.

Wild’s ability to trust, even after his ex-fiance’s betrayal with his brother.

Kat’s no relationship, only sex attitude.

What I didn’t like about it:

Kat was married and on the run from her abusive spouse. Granted, her husband was crazy, but married is married.

All in all, this story was an okay read.
