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.

 

 

description

 

 

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.

Stood up by her boyfriend, she goes home with a woman…

Straight-laced coed Angie has never felt daring enough to…experiment. Until tonight. The skin around Heather’s lips is soft, unlike the stubble Erik lets grow in, and the night unfolds like an erotic dream, tapping into an unexplored part of Angie’s body and mind.

But Heather’s seduction turns into a nightmare when Angie wakes up tied to the bed and is told she can’t leave. Alternately seduced and tormented by her lover-turned-captor, Angie is pulled ever deeper into a twisted world of pain-for-pleasure and voyeuristic exploits. As the stakes rise, both women give into a desire for connections neither has had, and Angie’s struggle to escape becomes a bigger dilemma: Would she leave if she could?

Winner of the Golden Palm Contest for New Adult Romance, this erotic thriller dares to explore the darker side of our fantasies and their sometimes unintended consequences.

 

 

Review

 

 

SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY! Holy shit that was an intense and crazy ride! I do love a good psychological thriller and this one did not disappoint. This is an exciting and very well written story and I highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys a book that makes your heart pump fast for many different reasons. This is an author you will want to keep on your radar.

The Need is a thrilling story about an insecure young woman who discovers things about herself that are brought to the surface in the most unexpected, unusual and sometimes terrifying way. This book will have you on the edge of your seat and wanting to read faster to find out what happens next. This is truly a prime example of a “page turner”.

 

 

description

 

 

Angie and Heather’s characters are very well developed and interesting. To me they felt like real people and I was right there with them on their crazy journey. Thank goodness I really wasn’t but I did feel what Angie felt. I felt her anticipation, love, fear, hate and confusion about what was happening to her. Heather helped these feelings along because she is a manipulator, deceiver and in my opinion a complete psychopath. However, at times I think Heather wanted the “normal” and she saw that in Angie. She wanted and yearned for someone to love her for who she is and all her faults. She wasn’t loved by her mother and her father left when she was young. So Heather has her own self esteem and trust issues.

 

 

“We are all victims of circumstance-until we make a conscious decision not to be.

 

 

description

 

 

This isn’t my first f/f book and most certainly not my last. The sex in this book is really good, terrifying, fascinating, complicated and very erotic. It’s very well done and given the circumstances of the story, nothing like I’ve read before. To me, each scene has a purpose in both Angie and Heather’s character development. There are a couple of scenes that make me wonder if Heather had set them up prior or if they really were unexpected. Example, the City Inspector and cop? Is she really that much of a mastermind manipulator?

 

 

“You don’t hate me. You chose to let me do that to you because it gave you something you needed.”

 

 

description

 

 

Some of the things I questioned or didn’t understand are; Angie is supposed to be super smart and highly educated. So it surprises me that she can even consider falling in love with someone who lied and tortured her. I get that you do what you need to survive but in my opinion that is an extreme case of Stockholm syndrome and that girl needs some therapy. I also know that years of low self esteem and believing your own truths has a tremendous effect on you.

 

 

description

 

 

There is also a part that confused me, but maybe I just read it wrong or something. Heather uses a phrase with the “city inspector” that calms him down and then Angie turns around and uses the exact phrase on Heather. Wouldn’t Heather recognize what Angie is doing? There is also a little bit of Heathers back story that I may have misunderstood. Again, it’s totally possible that I missed something. I thought that her mom got a new boyfriend? But then she ended up getting kicked out? Sorry people, I cannot elaborate on that question. Also, at the end of the book, what happened to the “other people” involved in the story? Was Stone Media set up like a snuff film or something? What happed to the company and all the videos? I can’t ask too many questions because I don’t want to give anything away. The ending did not go in the direction I expected which makes it much more interesting but left me with a lot of questions.

On a side note, I need to mention that every time I hear Iron Maiden… all I can think about is Bill and Ted. This really has nothing to do with the book, it’s just something that popped in my head almost every time I read it. 😀

 

 

description

 

 

My overall experience of The Need is a full 5 stars, but the ending and the few things I questioned make me take it down half a star. Although that ending was not what I expected or wanted, this is not my story to tell. This is Angie and Heathers story told through the eyes of S.L. Hannah and it really is an exciting story. I highly recommend trying this out for yourself.

Meet Caprice, better known as the villainess Capricious Whim….

Caprice is a woman who works hard and plays hard. She’s a veteran villain of Imperial City, and what you might call a ‘maladjusted individual’. While she plots to achieve her own goals, she’s forced to take whatever jobs may come along, and any unintended consequences from them!

The heroes don’t always win in this world, but being a villain has its own unique set of problems.

[Warning, explicit sexual content including light bdsm. Over 26,000+ words.]

 

 

Review

 

 

Supers, metahumans, mutants and freaks oh my! Sounds like my kind of crowd. Caprice Whim is perfectly beautiful and those kind of looks aren’t cheap. She is a telepathic killer for hire with telekinetic powers. All the “super villains” hang out at The Underground to find jobs and make connections. This is where Caprice teams up with Michael and Harry for job. And so begins the adventure….

What an amazing book! Actually, in my opinion anything this author writes is a MUST READ! I highly recommend her. I loved everything about this book. I was loving it so much that I started to look for things that I didn’t like and I can only think of one little thing that was slightly off to me, but I still liked it. This books has sizzling panty melting sex, an interesting and well written storyline, intriguing and well developed characters that I can’t wait to learn more about and lots of action. I was glued to the pages and didn’t want it to end.

I mentioned that there was one little thing that seemed off to me. Well, Caprice is this killer for hire and she is one of the best in her field. When she goes on a job, she seems to get tuckered out pretty quick if she is using her powers at max capacity. She had to be carried out because she was too spent. Just seems odd to me that she wouldn’t have a backup plan in a situation like that, since she is one of the best. Of course I find out that she refuels a lot like Popeye does with his Spinach. LOL! But that’s it. Even though I say it was slightly off, I get why she was weakened. It didn’t distract from the story at all and I wouldn’t change a thing. Caprice is a total bad ass and I have her down as one of my top 10 favorite characters.

 

 

description

 

 

I wanted these kinds of superhero and villain books when I was a kid. I read books with male heroes and wished that someone would write a kick ass book where women were the heroes. Why do the boys get to have all the fun? I don’t know about you, but I wished for more women heroes like Wonder Woman or a female version of Sherlock Holmes. There were some books like that, but not many. Didn’t matter to me if she was good or bad. This is my wish come true but even better because it appeals to my darker and adult kinkier side.

Overall I loved this. This type of book appeals to me on so many levels. Strong female, sci-fi fantasy, superheroes and villains, kinky and detailed sex and a really good storyline. I can’t wait to get my hands on the next one….

Ryan, a geeky technology apprentice student, is on his way to losing his virginity. Shy by nature, his lack of experience with women has left him unfamiliar with ideas other than vanilla sex. In his search for his ideal girl, he seeks out those he deems normal, only to be faced with and turned off by various sexual kinks. Ryan comes to learn that normal is relative, and that he and his ideal girl are anything but vanilla.

 

 

Review

 

 

Ryan is a geeky college student working part time at a bakery. While there he meets three very different women, Beth, Sylvia and Penelope. Each of these women have an interest in the new shy guy at the bakery. It’s like Ryan is in an Axe Body Spray commercial with all these girls wanting his attention.

 

 

description

 

 

Ryan is interested in finding his version of a “normal girl” and a traditional relationship. But with no real experience with women, what is his definition of normal?

I loved this. It was funny in spots, got my heart pumping, it was very erotic, sexy and kinky and has a great storyline.

 

 

“The tall, geeky ones always get to me. Bonus too, he’s shy.”

 

 

Beth is very interesting and, in my opinion, mildly psychotic. I’m a little scared of her. She is someone who likes to be in control and lucky for Ryan, she also works at the bakery.

 

 

“A hesitant man knows his place. A hesitant man will do what he’s told.”

 

 

description

 

 

If you know me then you will know that I absolutely hate food being used in erotic and sexual ways. It makes me gag just thinking about it. However, the way Beth worked that cream puff wasn’t that bad and I actually did okay with it. Until… until she decided to make a sandwich. You’ll have to read the story to find out what I’m talking about. Hey… to each their own. 🙂

 

 

description

 

 

“Men don’t own the world, women only let them believe they do. Don’t ever forget that.”

 

 

Beth has some very interesting sexscapades and Ryan needs to be educated and disciplined.

 

 

description

 

 

Sylvia works nearby and is a regular customer at the bakery. She also has a lady boner for Ryan and finally asks him out. She knows that Beth is interested in Ryan but is okay with some friendly competition.

I liked Sylvia and thought she was a lot less crazy than Beth. Sylvia is very much a cat person and feels that Ryan might also be a cat person. She takes Ryan home and shows him some new things.

 

 

description

 

 

“He loves what Sylvia has done to him. He’s never orgasmed so violently. No act has ever been as great, demanding so much from his body or lasting so long.”

 

 

Sylvia has given him the best orgasm but when Ryan wants to cuddle, he is shocked at what he sees.

 

 

description

 

 

What I didn’t like about Ryan at this point was that he totally judged Sylvia for her kink. I get it… she should have told him about it first and asked permission, but I don’t think he should have treated her like a leper.

Oh Penelope. I think she is my favorite. First looks can be deceiving, right? I love that she doesn’t look “normal”. Her tattoos, make-up and overall style are far from normal. I also really loved the shot out to Aqua’s Barbie Girl song too. I totally started singing it 🙂

Since Ryan wasn’t having any luck with the girls that looked normal and that were approaching him, he thought he would try a different tactic. Penelope seemed very nice, she was smart and was the top student in his class. When Ryan asked Penelope to come back at closing, I was really scared that Beth the psycho jelly cream girl was going to come back and do something. Or recruit Catwoman and really start some shit. I know it’s not a suspenseful story, but I couldn’t help it. It really got intense or maybe it was just me? But I kept waiting for the shit to hit the fan. But then… that ending. Hahaha! Well, I’ll just leave it there for now.

 

 

description

 

 

One of the things that I did not like is the way Ryan would occasionally refer to his “future son”. That started to get a little creepy. I’m going to tell my future son about this sexual experience and then I’m going to tell him about this…. It was odd to me and I wasn’t feeling it. The other thing was the food that I mentioned earlier. That is just a personal preference. There is nothing wrong with it, but its definitely not for me.

Overall, I really enjoyed this story. The writing was great and flowed really well. The world that this author showed us was vivid and exciting. I was seeing everything in my head play out like a movie and those are my favorite kind of books. The sex and sexual acts are definitely erotic and hot. In my opinion, this is an author to watch for. She has wicked story telling skills that will hook you from the start and not let go until she is good and ready to turn you lose. So… what do you consider “normal”? Do you have kinks and fetishes that you’ve shared with others? I would totally recommend this to my kinky friends. It makes you think…

Bravo!
