Vicki wants one thing for Christmas-Mr. Robertson. Sucking on a juicy red lollipop and dressed in a short plaid skirt, killer heels and pigtails, Vicki struts into his office, offering lip service to the straitlaced teacher in exchange for a passing grade in algebra. But he will not be bribed. In fact, her proposition earns her a spot over his knee and her skirt hiked up for one heck of a spanking. Before the night is through, Vicki learns several lessons at the capable hands of Mr. Robertson.
If you are looking for a hot holiday story, pick up Rosy Cheeks. I dare say you won’t be disappointed as Vicki makes sure she gets what she wants for Christmas. Rosy Cheeks is a very quick story, but once you start, you won’t want to put it down. Ms. LaCroix weaves a wonderful fantasy come to life within just a few pages. The characters are believable and fun as they give new meaning to the student teacher relationship.
There were a few moments at the beginning of the story where I wasn’t sure I was going to like where it was headed, but within a few pages, I adored Vicki and Mr. Robertson and was fully engrossed in this tale. I was actually wondering where I could get an outfit like Vicki’s and go after what I want for Christmas too! Mr. Robertson is just the teacher Vicki needs to teach her algebra and pleasure.
Kyriana Price has spent nearly a year trapped at her evil day job. And she does mean evil. Her boss is a mage bent on power who lets nothing stand in the way of his quest to gain more. When she sees Connul Graysn wielding a flogger at a BDSM club, she formulates an escape that will require his considerable skills—as a mage and as a Dom. Going to another mage for help might not be the best plan, but it’s the only one she’s got, and at this point, she’s willing to try just about anything. The last thing Connul expects when he finds an intruder in his house is that he’ll soon have her chained in his bedroom, her lovely body marked by his paddle. But she’s begging for his help—how can a gentleman refuse? As they learn to trust each other, he begins to realize the only thing he’s not willing to do for Kyriana is let her go.
Review: Bound by Sunlight is an interesting story. It pulls the BDSM lifestyle into a story of mage’s and human’s and how Kyriana and Connul interact on both levels. Kyriana knows very little about the lifestyle but is compelled to experience it with Connul. I have to admit that this story got me thinking about how interesting a scene would be when you can add some magical touches!
Kyriana and Connul jump feet first into a D/s relationship that has all the makings for trouble, but the reasons why are well defined and understandable. As they get past the things impeding a relationship, they begin to communicate more and learn each others likes and dislikes. Connul makes a good Dominant as he exhibits the strength and tenderness during and after a scene with Kyriana that I enjoyed seeing.
Bethany looked forward to this time of night. Pushing the soft sheets aside with her feet, she reached under the mattress and pulled out the dog-eared book that she has had for so long. She wasn’t supposed to enjoy things like this. If anyone else in the house found out, she would be so embarrassed. Checking again to make sure the door was closed, she wiggled her bottom against the bed til her t-shirt rode up. One hand snaked down to between her legs, while the other flipped open to her favorite section. She practically had it memorized. She sighed as each hand found the right spot. She began to read, waiting to get that part that she loved so much.
Kinky fiction is essential for so many reasons. Fiction is where people start their erotic journey. It’s through fiction that I and many other people first found arousal in alternative sexual practices or situations. For myself, it was when I was an early teenager and was reading a novel that I first really felt aroused. The characters had tied their babysitter to a tree and had started to torment her. I could feel my face get hot, my heartbeat speed up, and realized that my cock was getting hard.
We put ourselves into the stories that we read. By imagining ourselves as the characters in the story, we can immerse ourselves in the situation. We can taste the sting of the whip, or feel how it is to say harsh things to our partners and feel their swooning in response. We can try on different personality traits or desires and see how they make us feel, both in our minds and seeing how our bodies react. For me, after much exploring, it turned out the role of the tormentor was the one that turned me on the most. The idea of forcing a partner into doing what I want them to do, being what I wanted them to be, and to suffer for me was intoxicating.

I got into writing by a bizarre route. Basically, I served an especially creative dungeon mistress for a number of years who was very skilled at creating scenes, assuming different characters, improvising and story-telling. I write stories drawing on the themes of female supremacy, goddess worship, bdsm and fetish. My writing looks at the tensions and contradictions between the dominant and the submissive and explores the boundaries between pain and pleasure, physical and mental bondage and retribution and reward. I’d like to use this blog to describe the relationship between my writing and my bdsm experiences which have inspired it and to describe the strong connection that exists between the two.
I started writing because I wanted to contribute to the scenes my mistress had imagined and add some of my creativity to them and discovered that story-telling was a great way of doing that. It started on a small scale by recounting stories I had made up in my head which got integrated into a session. I remember on one occasion I’d developed a story that was a bdsm version of the Arabian Sinbad tales and, I thought, quite cleverly added the twist of offering three endings for mistress to choose from. She rejected them all and chose one of her own, which involved me getting punished! She could be wickedly ingenious like that. It didn’t take me long before I took some of my story ideas and started to put pen to paper. So, I started writing stories, some of which were presented as gifts to her and there were others which got worked into elaborate story cycles that became part of the sessions. Over time we built up a special rapport, with mistress at times interweaving her domination of me with the writing.
Meeting Her Match

In the internet age, it should be easy for like-minded fetishists to find and connect with each other. Or so Cherry thought. Her decision to enter the wild and wonderful world of BDSM leads her to some interesting and unexpected places. She soon finds herself on ‘the scene’ and her insatiable curiosity takes her to orgies, slave auctions and mansion houses full of trainee submissives, but where will she find her perfect Dom? Will Cherry ever meet her match?
I have to say that I overall I really enjoyed Meeting Her Match. It was a refreshingly modern view on meeting like-minded people. As Cherry begins to experiment in the world of BDSM, she has a lot to learn and starts her search online.
I have to admit a lot of memories came rushing back to me as I read about a few of her online meetings! When Cherry finally tries out a munch there are a lot of new emotions and ideas that she needs to come to grips with. I have to admit that these were also the two things that I had issues with in Meeting Her Match. The reason for my issues is the speed at which she jumps into ‘relationships’ with the people she meets. While I can admire jumping in with both feet, the process and her jumps just felt wrong and rushed.
Cherry ends up in good and bad relationships experience a wide variety of aspects of the BDSM lifestyle. I did like reading how Cherry enjoyed certain things and was pushing her own limits with things she wasn’t sure about. Nothing within Meeting Her Match felt extreme but there was a lot of variety within her relationships that brought the reader a better understanding of Cherry.

Years ago Logan was in love and that love has stayed with him even now. No one can ever take his Cherry’s place in his heart and now fate has brought her back into his life and given him another chance at love. Tara has never healed from her broken heart all those years ago and when she finds herself face to face with the very man who broke her heart she doesn’t know what to do. Will Tara be able to put the past aside to get the training she needs to get for her assignment or will the pain be to much for her to take?
This book is full of emotions. Both Logan and Tara must deal with not only their past but the present danger as well. Tara is all grown up now. She is no longer the young Cherry that lost her heart to Logan. I enjoyed Tara’s spirit and strength. She hurts on the inside but goes on with her life never letting it bring her down. Logan is a good man. No matter how much it hurts he does what is right. Seeing Logan continue to put his heart on the line with Tara made me like him even more. The love between these two is so strong that is has lasted through the years despite the pain. The two make a wonderful couple each one knowing just what the other needs and willingly gives it.

If I was a vanilla girl this little novella might have given me a cheap thrill! I am not, however a vanilla girl, and I am no stranger to the dynamics of the D/s relationship. Bind Me is definitely not a great read for anyone that knows the BDSM world. There are too many things that frustrated the hell out of me about it and I felt like a Navy Seal watching GI Jane at times.
There really are too many little things that did not sit well with me to go into detail but I will say that as a Dom goes I would not touch Master Reed with a ten foot pole. Firstly because he contradicted himself and went against an expectation he defined in the interview phase. Secondly because he had no restraint whatsoever and any good Dom will tell you that is inexcusable. Thirdly because any dom that leaves a sub during the aftercare phase is despicable, no matter what emotional turmoil he might be going through because he just did the whole cliche omg I need to run away from my emotions thing.
As I said before any vanilla girl that reads this might enjoy it and get a little thrill, but I would warn them that Bind Me is not a good representation of BDSM in any way.
I give 2 paddles out of 5 for some pleasant visual imagery moments in between the moments I was sighing in exasperation.
