Crave

By Dani Rene

Synopsis

Samael
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Can love overcome hate?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When I first laid eyes on the perfect little blonde,
I didn’t think she’d change my life.
But the first time I tasted her, felt her, took her,
I knew she was mine.
I laid a wordless claim because as much as I desired her,
I couldn’t have her.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I craved the dark, she filled me with light.
I loved delivering pain, she craved it.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Opposites merged by circumstance.
Hearts melded by passion.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Angel
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Can light defeat darkness?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I should have feared him.
Everything about him was drenched in the darkness he exuded.
But one glance into his cobalt eyes, and I knew I was his.
My heart allowed him entry, as did my body.
And after the first time, my soul recognized his.
Desired what he delivered.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I craved his darkness, he bathed in my light.
I submitted to his desires, he craved my very being.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Running from him wasn’t an option.
Fate bound us in its intricate pattern.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

This is book one of the Forbidden Series, but can be read as a standalone. Each book will feature a different couple. There is NO cliffhanger.

Review

Crave will take you to a place that will make you cry, shake with fear and make your skin crawl, it is everything a dark and erotic story has and so much more but you need to be strong and Angel is an incredible character and shows what the mind and heart are capable of.

Crave is dark and even I struggled with the storyline and at times I became desolate and I admit right here at some points I skimmed a paragraph as I could not cope with what Angel was going through.  I struggled with the hurt and degradation to her at the hands of old men.  There is so much darkness in this story and you are not given light until the last few chapters and by then I was so depressed and raw, upon finishing Crave it took me awhile to process this story.  When Samael found those tapes in his dad’s office that was the final straw for me, it broke my heart.

Crave is dark, more it will break your soul and for a moment in time you will think humanity has forgotten Angel and then Samael does eventually save her and can I say the ending restored my hope but left me raw.

I do not think I could ever read this again but I am so glad I read Angel and Samuel’s story, I am not brave enough to return.

Hold Me Down

By Sara Taylor Woods

Hold Me Down

Synopsis

Talia Benson has always been independent, unafraid to go after what she wants, regardless of setback, injury, or failure. But between her father’s conditional tuition payments and her mother’s nagging concern over her emotional state, Talia’s suffocating.

So when Talia meets doctoral student Sean Poole, she can’t figure out why she wants him to control her. Why she wants him to boss her around. Why she wants him to hurt her.

Talia learns the hard way that not all control is created equal, and sometimes submitting is the most empowering thing in the world.

From the author: Hold Me Down is a standalone romance with a HEA. It contains graphic sexual situations, language, D/s elements (including Daddy play), as well as discussion (but no depiction) of self-harm. 

Review

Hold Me Down has left me feeling so many emotions, I am raw, this was a devastatingly dark and highly emotional read, it had me gripped and I wanted to crawl into this story and stand with Talia when she was getting attacked from so many of her inner circle.

The Christmas period had me devastated, when she went on the medication, she was so alone and her semester back in college having to go to that class, she showed her strength.

One surprising story within Hold Me Down is her faith as a Jew, it was actually really incredible how the author spun Talia’s beliefs and her upbringing into her need for control and acknowledgement of good deeds.  Talia’s relationship with her parents helps you to understand how she thinks and her inner turmoils and need to affection.

Now onto Beardy McBlue Eyes ,well Dr Poole is bold and direct however towards the end I think I fell in love with that man, the showdown between Talia and Sean and their emotional outpouring of grief from their time apart gave me tingles and tears.

The passionate dominating scenes in Hold Me Down flow well, the build up of sexual tension and anticipation will have your squirming in your seat as you read.

I love the cover of this book and I would honestly read another whole story on Dr Poole and Talia.

Quote: I believe in strength through faith. I believe in compassion and freedom.

Daddy’s Girl

By Isabella Starling & Demi Donovan

Synopsis

Every brat needs a Daddy.

Daddy’s tastes are naughty and rough,
finding the right girl has been tough.

Daddy’s had them all you see,
but his little girl is the one he can’t set free.

Now Daddy has a lovely pet,
a naughty toy that’s scared of every threat.

But brats are always hard to train,
and Daddy’s girl has earned the cane.

Time to break out the whips and chains,
get some blood pulsing through baby’s veins.

Think twice before you disobey,
pretty girls in tears make Daddy’s day…

Review

Daddy’s Girl has me torn in two, how can I devour a book that is just a little bit wrong and dirty? Well I read it in a day, could not put it down, knew It would be hard but you once you pick this up you will like me keep turning those pages wanting to know how it ends – I simply loved the ending.

Lily’s mother was one character that I truly wanted to hurt very badly and then Law, well words fail me on that man, he is demented and dangerous but wow when he is that erotic and dominating man within the dark walls of Lily’s life well – speechless.

The mystery of Lily’s family and then the other players in this underworld is astonishing and when you realise where she is being held – well I was shocked – I had to take a moment as I was horrified and just so angry.

Lily’s strength her way to adapt to her situation and her issues obviously with her own father – her back story was interesting and helped me understand her actions and emotions to her situation.

Barred (Billionaires & Bohemians Book 2)

By Linnea May

Synopsis

She may have good reason to stand clear of men like me.
But I will make her mine.
I am my own man. I’ve always done things differently, and I’m sure as hell not going to end up like my brother – tamed and chained up to one woman.

This won’t change, even when that petite ballerina stumbles into my arms like a helpless deer.

Sara may embody the pure and innocent swan on stage, but this blue eyed doll can’t hide the little nymph she really is. I crave her lithe and lissom body like no other.

She’s scared and careful, always keeping me at arm’s length – which makes me want her even more.

This little swan will dance just for me.

*** This steamy Romance is aimed at audiences 18+. Full length novel with no cliffhangers and a HEA ending.

Review

Barred was another great love story in the Billionaire & Bohemians series.  I loved book 1 Tamed and Barred although following a similar romantic journey still had differences to keep me glued to the pages and reading this in a day, I could not put it down.

Billionaires & Bohemians Series (Tamed and Barred) gives the reader both beautiful love stories. The way these two brothers have fallen in love with artistic and compassionate women who are so far removed from their lives but bring so much with them to the individual relationships of these two brothers is excellent.  All characters to me evolve and grow as their romantic relationships do and I loved that, it’s like these women show the brothers the other side of privileged life.

I would have loved to had a chapter with Lux’s mother meeting Sara as she was a favourite character of mine from Tamed Book 1 and intricate to the first love story.  I am so sure Lux’s mother would have been all over Sara being the woman her son would eventually marry.

The sensual erotic scenes between Lux and Sara are beautifully written and the tug of war Lux has with his business and how he encourages Sara in her career was an excellent side story to their romance.

It was also wonderful to see Elodie and Kingston again in this story.  I do hope we get another story with these brothers and their wives embarking on the next stage of their lives together perhaps all in New York and Lux repairing his relationship with his parents.

My only complaint it did feel rushed at the end but I was also not ready to let Lux and Sara go!

Knight Takes Queen (All or Nothing #3)

By C C Gibbs

Synopsis

Prolong the pleasure . . . the breathtaking final installment of the Knight trilogy has finally arrived

Katherine Hart has come a long way from the day she accepted a position as codebreaker for Knight Enterprises, glittering domain of playboy CEO Dominic Knight.

With his wicked reputation, nobody could have imagined Dominic Knight sated by just one woman . . . until green-eyed Katherine captured his sole fascination, and stirred his fiercest desire.

Now, newly pregnant with his child, Kate has never been so pampered, nor so very, very satisfied. But when tragedy strikes and Dominic and Kate are forced to reassess, the lovers must ask themselves if such pleasure is ultimately worth the pain.

Review

I really loved the series All or Nothing – Dominic and Katherine definitely are two characters that provide a simply erotic and highly emotional love story – just beautiful and what a journey we have been taken on – never a dull moment!

Out of all three books this is my favourite, the emotional tug of war these two characters go through in order to find their happy ever after is simply heart breaking.  I loved how Nana was brought into the story even more and her support for Katherine was lovely.

Dominic has some real hurdles to overcome and poor Katherine has to fight to have her dream and I did struggle with one scene where he locked themselves away for the “three week plan”, I actually did not like Dominic at this point in the book.

No matter how much money they have at the start of this book their happiness is taken from them in a most dreadful way and I was overcome with such emotion for Katherine.

I did find Dominic over the top over protective when it came to Katherine and her pregnancy but then some inner part of me remembers that is his way, Katherine is only 22 and so young.

I keep telling myself that Dominic is a very cynical character and then way he cocoons her into his life is a beautiful thing in the end and they do get their HEA.

Knight definitely takes his Queen and they give it All or Nothing to have their family – I was so happy for them.

Knight’s Game (All or Nothing #2)

By C C Gibbs

Synopsis

When her tryst with handsome billionaire Dominic Knight gets out of hand, Katherine Hart resolves to cut all contact for good. But Dominic won’t let his object of fascination escape so easily: when they cross paths in a plush hotel in Singapore, their steamy affair is reignited.

But can such exquisite pleasure last?

Kate knows her lover is a man who lives entirely for the chase. Is this reunion a rushing climax before an inevitable fall, or could Kate possess the keys to finally taming the untamable Dominic Knight?

Review

Knight’s Game began where Knight’s Mistress ended and you knew their dynamic chemistry would just continue to build.  Plenty of sexual scenes that will have your panting and holding your breathe but this instalment gives us so much more of an emotional read.

Knight’s Game takes us behind Dominic’s facade and his walls slowly start to crumble and we learn more of his upbringing as we meet his sister Melanie and her family.

His family played a bigger part as did Kate’s Nan which has one of my favourite thoughts and sums up Dominic fighting his way to the end in the story for his happiness and to make his own family;

“Nana stood on the porch and watched the wealthy young man walk through the snow in his sandals, get into his rental car and drive away.  She’d never met anyone so alone, she thought.”

Knight’s Game changed the direction in their relationship and the surprises and romantic guestures is why I love reading Romance novels.

The love letter and declaration by Dominic with the flowers brought tears to my eyes.

Knight’s Mistress (All or Nothing #1)

By C C Gibbs

Synopsis

Katherine Hart is thrilled to be recruited by Knight Enterprises, the most prestigious venture-capital company in the world. That is, until she makes the acquaintance of the company’s infamous CEO, Dominic Knight.

At thirty-two, Dominic is a self-made billionaire with a fearsome ambition and a temper to match. He is also impossibly attractive and dangerously charming when he wants to be.

To Kate, Dominic seems like the perfect predator, and she resolves to be cautious despite the obvious chemistry between them, telling herself she can always leave if Dominic grows too demanding. What she doesn’t know is that the decision isn’t hers to make…

Dominic Knight has found a new plaything, and Mr. Knight always gets what he wants.

Review

I love the international Covers for this whole 3 book series.
Katherine is 10 years younger than Dominic and it is interesting to follow their initial meeting and the intense physical and emotional scenes where these two characters carefully constructed walls are torn down. Katherine is stubborn and headstrong but also beautifully polite and it is refreshing to have a character like her and I immediately connected. She is not naive but has an endearing outlook on life from her small town upbringing. I also love her IT back story and it is great to have a young female character with brains, taking down the bad guys and impressing a hot alpha billionaire.
I love Katherine’s desire for food and enjoying the simple things in life – this is probably why Dominic finds her a breath of fresh air.
The sexual scenes were simply off the charts erotic and put quite simply will make you tingle, the sensual play and controlling orgasms had me on the edge of my seat.
The ending of this first instalment is emotional but these two characters have a long way to go and I cannot wait to follow their relationship.
I am sensing we will continue to travel around the globe following them to find their happiness.
This story flows well, it is not rushed and we jumped ahead in time when they were on the boat and I for one was glad as I was itching to get to the end of the 7 days to find out how Knight’s Mistress would end and where we end up in order to continue into Knight’s Game (All or Nothing Book 2).

Tamed (Billionaires & Bohemians Book 1)

By Linnea May

Synopsis

The more that stands between us, the more I want her.

Love isn’t something I’m capable of feeling, but if a marriage is what it takes to become my father’s successor and save my family’s fortune from ruin, then it’ll have to be arranged.

However, I have a reputation and for good reason. I can’t be tamed. My despicable bride-to-be couldn’t care less about it. This is all for show. It’s a marriage of convenience for her. I just need to play it safe until the wedding is over.

But then she shows up. The cute pianist, hired to play at my engagement party. Shy, innocent and virtuoso – off limits and impossible for me to claim. She’s a sweet risk and a challenge like no other. Her weak attempts at fending me off only fuel my greedy hunger.

She’ll be mine. Even if that means putting everything I’ve worked for on the line.

Review

Simply loved this story, it is beautiful, erotic and I could not put it down.  This is my second story by this author, I have read Silent Daughter that she co-wrote and again I have another fantastic story with lots of emotion, passion and tingle in your tummy sex scenes.

You can connect easily to the two main characters as we get both POV and I loved the interaction between Kingston and Elodie.  She definitely Tamed Kingston as she simply wanted nothing from him, she was pure and hard working and you can easily see why cynical Kingston fell for her.

One of my favourite characters was Kingston’s mother Mrs Abrams, she definitely influenced  key points in their love story.  I actually loved how she took Elodie under her wing like a mother would a daughter.

The erotic sex scenes are really well written and highly enjoyable.

One character that was weird for me was her ex “friend with benefits” Benjamin as I thought he would cause more damage as it was implied but in the end he was pretty insignificant to the overall story.

Favourite part for me was the Engagement party and I loved how this did not get overly ugly between Kingston and Gloria.  The Epilogue ties up all the loose ends is a beautifully romantic way and I do wonder if we will have a story on his brother and perhaps see more of where Kingston and Elodie?

Silent Daughter

By Stella Noir & Linnea May

Synopsis

“I am going to break you. 
I am going to free that little monster inside of you, peel off every barrier of protection – and reassemble a new you.

LIZ
Moving back home after graduating college was not the plan, but I have nowhere else to go. For now, I have to live in my family’s unpleasant company, secretly fleeing to the darkest corners of my mind when I am alone.
They are right to keep me at distance. There is obviously something wrong with me. Me, the bad seed.
I am invisible.
To everyone but him.
However, even my darkest fantasies never took me where I am now. Robbed of my freedom, my clothes and control over my decisions.
I am his captive. Confined in a gilded cage laced with pleasure.

LEONARD
I made it to the top. In a world divided into us and them, I have become one of them. This is who I am, where I belong, among the rich & powerful. I am used to getting what I want – and I know I want her from the moment I see her. Elizabeth Barrington. That quiet but strong fairy, waiting to be broken. She may not understand it herself, but her eyes are begging for me to take her.
So I will.
She didn’t think I would go this far, but here she is. Collared and chained to the bed, completely at my mercy.
Mine to keep, mine to train, mine to please.
But Liz is unlike any other sub I have trained before.
She is dangerous.

**This is a Dark Romance with themes of kidnapping, captivity & steamy BDSM scenes. Intended for audiences 18+ & not for the faint-hearted. Contains situations some readers might find objectionable.**nsert Synopsis Here

Review

Silent Daughter was one simply dark, dangerous, dirty and down right delicious read.  I could pick this up again as I was not ready to leave Leonard and Liz because I want to know their future.

One of my favourite parts of this book was the fact we get dual POV which enables you to connect to both characters as this is a highly emotional read.  The sexual BDSM scenes are highly erotic and some of the most intense I have read in a long time – truly satisfying and give you all those tingles and stomach turns you read dark romance novels for.

Silent Daughter Liz is ignored and ridiculed by her family for being different, wanting an education over an arranged marriage. The way this is written you immediately connect to her on an emotional level and could see how she could be intrigued by Leonard when she first meets him.  Leonard and Liz are outsiders in a world of money and privilege who have deep dark secret needs.

Leonard peels away the layers of Liz, at the start this is a mind and physical game for him but it is riveting to see how the dynamic in their relationship changes over the course of the book.  Leonard frees the Silent Daughter, he enable Liz to escape from the guilded cage that is her life and encourages her to be herself and acknowledge her different needs.

Whilst I devoured the darkness, emotional and physical erotic scenes of this story, the ending provided me with romance and new beginnings and gave me the lightness of love.

Quote: He isn’t normal, and neither am I. We are perfect for each other.

I was feared.

Every decision.
Every order.
Right and wrong never mattered.
Until her.
She was under my protection, until she became my obsession.
But who was going to save her…

From. Me. The devil himself.

Fate brought us together. Destiny destroyed us.
STANDALONE. New Adult Contemporary Romance: Full length novel.

Review

El Diablo delivers those book moments (yes there are more than one) when you’re reading and you want to stop, it feels hard but you know you have to continue.  This story tied me up in knots, I was scared for the secrets, not wanting to know but really needing to know if my feelings were correct. This story is amazing – I simply loved it.

El Diablo  is told in two parts, however the overall theme is about the women who moulded this man to be who he is.

The first half told his story of young first love, his protection of his sister and his devotion to his mother.  This is a hard story with loss and different types of love and him becoming that man.  One scene with his sister and her friend is an incredibly tough chapter but moulds this man.

Moving on to the second half – this was my favourite – it is more dark, raw and gritty.  I held such sadness for Briggs and totally devastation for Lexi but wow their characters and how they affect El Diablo kept me turning those pages.

Lexi was my favourite character of all the women for sure, the interactions, emotions and drama were fantastic.  It was so interesting to see how part one of this story ultimately paved the way for how El Diablo lives and conducts his life.  I was trying to piece everything together, I gave up and just enjoyed the passionate and heart breaking moments that was Lexi’s life with El Diablo literally conducting her life like a conductor of a orchestra.

El Diablo’s secret is outstanding at the end and ties all my questions together and thank god I got my answers, amazing how the author intriquitely weaved all the characters together. I cannot believe Sophia’s connection to it all and my god the lengths El Diablo goes for Lexi is breathtaking and I cried with relief at the ending.

This story is dark and dirty but the ending is beautiful and one of the best I have read in such a long time – so fulfilling – it is so worth the devastating journey.
