Handsome Men Suck by James Cox hms

Link to buy Handsome Men Suck (Handsome Heroes Book 3)

Story Rating: 4 out of 5 paddles

Sting Factor (kink): 2 out of 5

Review:

James Cox has written a fine kink-lite science fiction/fantasy short story. His writing skills are excellent, the plot moved forward at a quick pace, and the characters were nicely developed.

The best part? The author’s humor was evident in the main character’s thoughts and disposition. Kendrew went from one naughty mess right into a firestorm and came up smiling the entire way. Love a personality with a positive, happy-as-I-am, outlook!

Be sure to add James Cox to your preferred authors list. If smiling-good-times are your delish, he’s the M/M erotica author to keep close. This book is a studly keeper!

The Submissive Feminist by Stacy Wakeman submissive

Link to buy The Submissive Feminist: A BDSM Erotic Romance Novella

Story Rating: 2 out of 5 paddles

Sting Factor (kink): 1 out of 5

Review:

The Submissive Feminist by Stacey Wakeman is the story of one grad student’s attempt to find herself in the world and sexually. Through the help of two of her professors Delia is able to figure out exactly what she needs to in order to become a strong submissive and feminist. Sorry, there is not much to tell without giving away too much information on this short story.

It is a pet peeve for this reviewer when books are written in first person simply because it does not allow for the story to develop fully and the character to take on a life of his or her own. That is exactly what takes place here. The main character is not fully developed since she is stuck in limbo between being a figment of the author’s imagination and someone the author wishes to be or even perhaps a piece of herself, again this is the whole issue of writing in first person. Even though this is a work of fiction when it comes to BDSM there should always be some sort of realism attached to the story so that unrealistic expectations are never set in a reader’s mind. While the scenes were kinkilicious they were not overly BDSM, to be honest. The story was slow and not overly well developed. The story receives a two out of five spanks and the BDSM side receives a one out of five spanks simply for the kink factor.

Photograph y Tanith Davenport photograph

Story Rating: 4 out of 5 paddles

Sting Factor (kink): 2 out of 5

Review:

Photograph by Tanith Davenport is a novel of 61,000 words, or just under two hundred pages of actual story. The text is double spaced and easy to read. The writing is smooth and professional with little authorial intrusion. The point of view shifts between the two main characters—twin sisters—for most of the first half of the novel. After that it pretty much stays with Tara, the more conflicted of the two sisters.

Tara and Azure Thornton are fraternal twins. They come from a military family and both were commissioned into the British Army. Azure is invalided out with PTSB while Tara still serves in the Royal Engineers. Azure wins a contest and meets the man of Tara’s dreams: Liam Wilder, billionaire amusement park magnate. After a whirlwind romance Azure and Liam marry. The two sisters become estranged.

The novel opens two years after Azure’s marriage with an attempt at reconciliation. Tara is invited to join Azure and Liam as guests on the mega yacht of fellow billionaire Nik Sugiyama, along with more than a dozen other couples, for a twenty-one day cruise of the Mediterranean. Oddly, the yacht doesn’t seem to have a name. It greatly resembles a luxury liner and the activities on board rarely vary from those you might expect on a cruise open to the public. Except for a few supporting characters, most of the other guests promptly disappear from the story.

Tara still carries a torch for Liam Wilder. She also carries his photograph. The Royal Engineer lieutenant is strong, capable and independent woman. She demonstrates this by protecting her sister from paparazzi at the first stop of the cruise and later on a nut with a gun. But Tara is also the most conflicted. She can’t seem to have a long term relationship, instead bouncing from one night stand to another. She uses the men she meets and then discards them. Then she meets Ryan Hyde, the tall ectomorphic accountant for the Surgiyamas. He is confident and not the least intimidated by Tara. For once she resists dragging him to bed with her on the first night. They get to know each other. As time progresses he slowly displaces Liam in Tara’s heart.

The story unfolds slowly. Readers in a rush to get to “the good stuff” will be disappointed. Most of the sex is conventionally vanilla. It’s only very late in the book that anything to do with dominance and submission appears. It’s also where the reader can find any sort of kink. But it is an essential part of this story.

The book series is “what’s her secret.” All of the main female characters have secrets. They unfold as the story progresses. This reviewer won’t spoil it for the reader. Some are predictable. Some not.

Nerd readers will spot several plot holes. This nerd wonders if the billionaires in this story were all born yesterday: Paparazzi are a known phenomenon, with all their money they couldn’t hire some security and even an advance team?

But all that aside, if the reader wants a leisurely unfolding story with a satisfyingly romantic ending, this is the story for you.

Wet For Her Warriors by Angel Payne NEWLARGE WITH WHITE ANGELPAYNEMENAGEWETFORHERWARRIORS

Link to buy Wet For Her Warriors (WILD — Warriors Intense in Love & Domination — Boys of Special Forces) (Volume 5)

Story Rating: 5 out of 5 paddles

Review:

Lani is under pressure to sell her land. She finds Tait and Kellan trespassing and fighting on her beach while she is waiting for the man trying to get her land.

Wet for Her Warriors is love and relationship story, that focuses on the Lani, Tait, and Kellan’s relationship. Toward the end of the story it starts to become a very good suspense story as well. The author did a good job regarding this part of the story, and I am looking forward to the rest of it in the future.

Lani, despite her free spirit has a difficult time dealing with the fact that she wants both Tait and Kellan, and is also willing to be dominated. As the story progresses, she gets more into it once both Tait and Kellan show her what they expect. I liked that Kellan, even though he had questions and had only observed Tait in the past, decided that maybe he was a dominant when he realized Lani was receptive. It also helped that she was the first woman he felt that way about.  The scenes between the three are intense.

Be aware that there is a scene involving the villain that definitely shows how BDSM can be abusive even if a scene involving almost the same scenario is a consensual scene with someone else. The author did a good job with it.

I enjoyed reading this book, and it is part of a series. I look forward to reading more.

Roleplay Gone Wrong by Reed James roleplay

Link to buy Roleplay Gone Wrong (Naughty Wives 1) (Naughty Wives Series)

Story Rating: 3 out of 5 paddles

Sting Factor (kink): 1 out of 5

Review:

This was a short story, apparently one of a series. Based on the preview at the end of the book, the later chapters move more into the area of BDSM, but this particular story features a spanking done in anger and no other BDSM elements.

Frank and Evie have learned to spice up their sex lives with various role playing scenarios. Then Evie proposes an evening where she looks like a hooker and he picks her up on the street. But there is a danger inherent in such a role play -can their marriage survive the hazards?

There was a fairly developed plot for such a short read, but the reader isn’t given enough character development to relate to the main characters. The sex scenes are explosive. Expect cheating, oral, anal, and sloppy seconds.
