Review:

Have you ever had a fantasy? Ever longed to play a game or act out a scene with your lover? Who hasn’t? This book gives couples a helping push in the right direction. This is a fun and entertaining way to spice up your love life. Sometimes people just need a little help getting started and this book does just that.

I am a fan of Violet Blue and always look forward to her work. I enjoyed the way this book talks to you not at you. The writing is fun and friendly never coming off like a text book and helping couples learn to communicate. This is a good read that may help couples open up more and have the fun that they are looking for. Communication and fun are truly the main ideas in this book. It was also nice to see some resources and safe sex information included in this book. There is information on a variety of subjects and fantasies making this an easy and engaging read. I also loved the quick stories by Alison Tyler that are included in this book.

Couples looking for an easy way to spice up their love lives should grab this book and have themselves some fun.

Review:

Welcome to Femanistria has the potential to be a good read for femdom enthusiasts. It is a story about a fairly successful man in his thirties who is deep enough into the femdom lifestyle that he owns a small wardrobe of female festish clothing and a significant collection of BDSM accoutrement, which are used on him by the professional dominatrixes that he hires on a regular basis. Harry Tanhide takes a break from his electrical engineering consulting business and goes on a solo hiking trek through Eastern Europe during which he inadvertently crosses the border into Femanistria, an obscure country with a strict matriarchal society.

For Harry, given his sexual proclivities, this development is an answer to his prayers. Soon he is lured into a life where he is essentially a non-person, a slave to all women and subject to harsh punishments at their whim. So far so good for hardcore femdom readers, but alas, the telling of this fantasy is where things go wrong.

Perhaps there are readers for whom it is okay that very little progress in the story arc has been accomplished two hundred plus pages in, but I would hazard that they are a very small minority. An inordinate amount of the story is devoted to detailing the minutiae of day-to-day life at the facility where Harry is essentially imprisoned. The Femanistrian women are mostly portrayed as being shallow, petty, anal retentive and mean spirited.

Even for an open minded femdom fan like me, it is next to impossible to see what the appeal was to Harry and his fellow prisoners. The punishments came off as brutal and often arbitrary, and the sexual components weren’t particularly arousing. Despite trying my best to tough it out to the end, I finally put the book down two thirds of the way through. There may well be some interesting plot developments in the final 100 pages, but I read for enjoyment and this book did not provide enough of it for me to continue. If after reading the above description and it still sounds appealing to you, then you are its target audience – read it and enjoy.

Review:

Vanessa is a thirty something chubby woman who is lacking confidence due to her body size. She hasn’t had much luck in the men department, which is why her best friend Danica brings Vanessa to the BDSm club Devils and Angels on the night of a BBW event. Of course, Vanessa is way out of her comfort zone in both dress and attending the club, but all that starts to change once the two walk in the door.

Vanessa drags Danica to the bar, needing a drink to calm her nerves and that is where she meets Cade, a dominant who’s known for not holding onto submissives for very long. While Cade and Vanessa share a drink, he shares with her his desires to do some pretty naughty things with her. He then shows her around the club a bit and has her watch a few scenes, which really gets her juices flowing. After a little confidence boost in the women’s bathroom from a Domme, Vanessa gives Cade her phone number and things get a lot steamier!

Cade and Vanessa develop a beautiful relationship that inspires her to blossom in more ways than one. Unfortunately, things start to fall apart when Vanessa finds out a few things about Cade’s past relationships that makes her question how much she means to him.

This is one of the few books where the closer to end I found myself in a dilemma. I wanted to hurry and finish to find out how the story ends, but on the other hand, I didn’t want the story to end! I love Vanessa and found her instantly relatable and I love her witty inner dialogue which adds a lot of humor to the book. A wonderful added bonus, all the steamy hot sex and kink scenes that take place both in and out of the bedroom! This is a definite must read and I can’t wait until the second book comes out!

Review:

Charm is an entire book about BDSM without ever really mentioning the initials.

After Ella walks in on her boyfriend with another woman, she runs out of the gala and kisses the first man she meets on the street, a man she later learns is millionaire Darnley Wolfe. They spend a passionate night together and she doesn’t see him for a year, when she runs into him by accident while planning to meet her ex, Ryan.

The two continue to explore each other and delve more and more into Darnley taking control in the bedroom. In the background is the complication of her ex, the secrets in Darnley’s family and the attitude a number of people have that Ella isn’t good enough for Darnley.

The book was choppy in the beginning, but the writing smoothed out as the relationship progressed. I had a couple of other problems with the book: one, Ella teaches at a university but people put her down as a nobody. Most professors are people of substance, not necessarily rich, but not scum, either. My other concern is that this is part one of a trilogy-but at least it doesn’t end in a cliffhanger.

The BDSM includes bondage, biting, orgasm denial, and flogging. While Darnley admits to training as a Dom and talks to Ella about bondage and more, the idea of BDSM is introduced slowly.

This was an interesting book that I enjoyed after getting past the staccato tone of the first part of the book.

Story Rating: 4 out of 5 paddles

Review:

A dull boring life changed based on one decision – handcuffing oneself to a car. Sarah is a young woman just graduated from college. She’s living her mother’s dream life and not sure if she wants to stay on course. When her fiancé, Luke, surprises her with a note to handcuff herself to her car door after work one night, her entire world changes. She’s forced into a world where nothing makes sense. Sexually violated over and over again, Britta starts to learn her new role in life.

The world building in this story is light. It is a common sex slavery capture theme. The sex slavery organization is called Dragon’s Lair and run by the mysterious Dragon Master. The hints dropped about the Dragon Master makes a reader guess who this person may be or how they are affiliated with someone in Sarah’s life.

There is decent character building with both Sarah and her supporting cast – the sexual fiends taming and tormenting her. What really makes this story good is the sex. The detailed scenes including ageplay and medical play is so good. Ms. Ashley pens smoking hawt scenes enticing readers who love humiliation mixed with vulnerability. This is a book which should be added to a medical play fetish’s spank bank. It’s medium level in BDSM torment and graphic humiliation yet it’s Sarah’s responses which will elicit a wave of lust. For submissives who enjoy being restrained whilst all their body parts and orifices are exposed and controlled, this is a panty wetting fantasy.

The pace of this story is good as it moves from capture to training. The indoctrination and brain washing process is also well written. It’s not repetitive nor lecturing. What may frustrate readers is the ending. It leaves a reader expecting more to the story. It’s clear this is only the first in the series. The next book in the series can’t come soon enough. If it included more graphic medical play as well as more intense ABDL, it would kick up the heat. Maybe there will be some pet play. Hopefully there will be sexual training which will be both humiliation and degrading. I’m hoping for F/f with the nurse and other female captives! I am very eager to see how Ms. Ashley continues Sarah’s erotic education. Recommended for kinky readers who enjoy ageplay and medical play.

Review:

How does one find themselves? Relationships are hard anyway, so when you find something that fits, you need to do whatever it is to keep it. Isabella’s feelings are all over the shop, she keeps telling herself she isn’t a sub. Isabella also knows, being a sub maybe the only way to keep Gabriel.

There are Doms out there that have the talent to be able to give a sub what they need even with the sub themselves don’t know. Isabella has a lot to learn if she is going to be with Gabriel. He pushes her to her greatest heights and then pushes some more. Gabriel has Isabella’s body so in-tuned with his touch, that she craves him. And not knowing a lot about the life style Isabella does push the boundaries.

I enjoyed this short story more than I thought I would and find myself wanting to read the other in the series. Both characters complimented each other by not being too overbearing or too bratty. BTW the alley scene is hella hot!! I would recommend this to others.

Review:

Blurb:

“Serenity,” a photograph worth four million dollars, was sold at auction to an anonymous bidder. Stealing it will represent the largest payday Daniel will have ever had. To make that happen, he poses as a photography curator to attract the attention of Kearin, the auction house owner. Kearin takes Daniel under his wing to work in the non-profit branch of his business, but it’s a cover for his desire to see Daniel naked, bound, and needy for the camera. Kearin has a client interested in a very specific portfolio—filling the request would put him at the top of his field. Daniel thinks he can use the modeling to get closer to “Serenity.” What he doesn’t expect is to fall for Kearin’s brand of intensity instead. So does he go for the photograph or Kearin’s heart? He wouldn’t call himself a master thief if he couldn’t steal both.

Review:

A bit of mystery, a bit of Dominance and submission, and a whole heck of a lot of sexual tension! This book will keep you totally glued to the pages until you finish it. You’re not going to want to put it down.  Even before Kearin gets Daniel in his ropes, there is a fine tension between the two. Poor Daniel, does he want the photograph more than he wants Kearin? The ‘calm’ that comes over Daniel when he’s in the ropes, something that so many subs aspire to, that headspace where everything is so calm and serene makes him wonder what he really wants.  This is a fantastic read and I would recommend it to anyone.

Blurb:

Tate and Sebastian are having trouble maintaining a successful monogamous relationship.When trust is betrayed and old friends reappear, the men are faced with the challenge of making things work or changing the way they will be together. Nobody ever said relationships were easy, and when sexy Dom James Lucas swoops in at the right time, things get even more complicated. Or do they? Do gay men have to tow the traditional line, or is there room for a new definition of true love?

Review:

In “The Cross and the Trinity” we witness the evolution of a BDSM menage relationship. As the book opens, Tate and Sebastian’s relationship is under many of the same strains that almost any couple – gay or straight, kinky or vanilla – experiences. And like too many young couples, they don’t have the maturity or life experience to help them deal with the stresses of work and other responsibilities. Although James is initially seen as a threat to the relationship, owing to his past dealings with Tate, he goes out of his way to help the two patch up their relationship, becoming the kind of mentor the younger men need.

Of course, James doesn’t remain as a platonic outsider for long, and soon the three men are trying to work out whether three’s a crowd or just the way things work for them. James is a powerful force, taking the two younger men on a journey of sexual discovery, introducing them to all sorts of new experiences. The kinky scenes are extremely varied, although perhaps not too extreme. The range is from puppy play to fisting and just about everything in between.

However, it should be pointed out that the emphasis in most of the scenes is on the reactions of the men involved, as related from Tate’s point of view. Sometimes the descriptions of what was being done were a little short on details, leaving you to wonder exactly what’s going on, or even if what is being described is physically possible. It was never bad enough to stop your enjoyment of the scene, but you will wonder what’s going on from time to time.

The characters are well drawn and chances are you will identify with one of them. While the way the relationship evolves is an interesting idea, it’s not necessarily the central theme of the book. In some ways, it’s just a vehicle for some hot scenes. Of course, there isn’t anything wrong with that. The tone of the book is further lightened with a bit of humor, mainly in Tate’s reactions to the situations he finds himself in. It comes across as entirely natural and makes for some fun reading.

“The Cross and the Trinity” is actually a sequel to “Beyond the Edge”, which introduces the three characters and sets up Tate and Sebastien as a couple. I didn’t know about the first book when reading this volume, and while it was clear there was more back-story to the three characters than was related in this book, it didn’t feel like there were essential details missing.
