Razor Saga: Razor by Rue Volley is a very confusing short story that starts with a very grief stricken young lady who missed her lover an artist named Rin. This portion of the story is heartfelt and when read can touch a person’s heart. However, the story takes a rather odd twist when she returns to the club at which she met Rin. From this part on it starts to become rather odd to say the very least as Lilah finds herself back up on the upper floor of the club where entrance is only by invite. What happens next is a surprise all its own one that a reader must read to understand.

This short story was not very BDSM oriented to be quite honest though it did represent some twisted version of blood play. Even this element of BDSM was not represented very well it was more along the lines of a cutter/slasher type of theme. In all honesty though the short story started out well it ended leaving me wanting something more that this short story did not contain.

Razor Saga: Torn by Rue Volley is the sequel to Razor Saga: Razor and in all honesty is no better than the first. Lilah’s story continues telling of abuse and mental illness that lead to the spree killing she did at the club in the prior book. Tyler makes another appearance here but in a much more in depth role as the stalker he truly was. The story still leaves the reader confused about what really was going on. Other than that this short story lacked real definition and lacked a true plot or ending.

Rue Volley portrayed a couple of sexual encounters and a couple of small tidbits of needle play but nothing more. There was no true BDSM defining moments in this book. Furthermore there was no real storyline to follow. Even the stalker that is described had no true vision or character development.

Review:

Desperate times call for desperate measures. Jasmine has decided that “Old and alone with my battery-operated boyfriends is not where I am going to end up”.

For two months Jasmine has waited for an invitation to The Black Lily, a BDSM club that can only be entered with an invitation and it has finally come. Scared and yet excited she prepares as directed by her invitation to take the first steps into something totally unknown to her. Being independent and self-sufficient seems to be a turn off to her having a relationship. Maybe BDSM will be the solution.

For a hundred years Marcus has searched for something or someone to complete him. She has finally walked through the door of his club. Marcus can sense that Jasmine is unsure of herself so he is sure to take things ever so slowly to help build her trust in him. He starts with a tour of part of the club and gauges her reactions to what she is seeing for the first time. He can smell her excitement and arousal and has a hard time containing himself, he must not move too fast and scare her off.

Jasmine feels she is ready to take things a step up from watching and agrees to go with Marcus to his place. When they enter he blindfolds her but softly and sensually talks her into backing up to the bed and gently reassures her as he places cuffs on her and talks to her constantly as he restrains her spread eagle on the bed. Constant sensual touching and words bring her to an orgasm. As she is being released and comforted she admits that she has never before experienced an orgasm with a man. Marcus is so pleased when she expresses her desire to do more.

Plans are made to get to know each other and to explore more and more. She is hungry to do more with Marcus and he gently guides her through spanking, flogging, nipple clamps, oral sex, anal play and her hunger seems to only grow as her trust in Marcus increases.

Jasmine still does not know that Marcus is a vampire and when they prepare for her first public display in one of the viewing rooms she is excited. When Marcus adds a clit clamp she is nearly floating by the time they prepare to go. The final touch is his collar that he puts on her so all will know that she belongs to him. She feels a security she has never known before.

She is his and he is hers but that love and trust have one final test to take.

A scintillating club scene short book with some fang-tastic  fun!

Blurb:

The Debut Launch Anthology from Hot Ink Press (an Erotic Imprint of Crushing Hearts and Black Butterfly Publishing). Bella Morte: Make your nights sizzle like summertime and feed your desire with sensual illusion and fantastic stories in the Bella Morte Anthology. This anthology features stories from some of today’s freshest erotica romance authors. Bella Morte will leave your heart racing and your imagination running wild. Vampires, Genies, and Demon Hunters are the lovers of choice; guaranteed to bring a little death to everyone.

Review:

This anthology is a combination of short stories and poetry.  There is no BDSM, although there is some F/F action and an orgy or two. Most of the stories are paranormal and erotic in nature and only the last one was worth the effort of reading. The poems include: Beautiful Death  and Bella Morte, by Carly Wallace; Whispers in the Night by Jade Mira;  and Night of Ecstasy by Harley de Luca, who is also the author of the poem, Taboo.

The first story, the Gypsy Princess, was written with such poor grammar that I wondered if the author, Samantha Bradie, spoke English as a second language. This one features F/F action as Gypsy Queen Rain seduces Jade on her 18th birthday, informs her she is a siren and sends her out to earn money as a prostitute. This sets the tone for the other stories, although most use better grammar.

The Devil went Down by Johnny Dahmer is about a female devil who has sex with men then dissects them, in a to-be-continued story. Meh.

In The Inheritance, by A. McEwan, Incubus Bjorn meets and falls in love with Succubus Mara, but their forbidden love leads to Bjorn being sentenced to hell and Mara losing her child to be raised by humans as she was. Sad ending and felt pointless

Hell’s Apple by Josephine Ballowe features hooker Elizabeth, who is approached by an older gentleman, who takes her to a special club, where she learns she is really a Succubus and a daughter of Satan. Another pointless exercise.

Her Wildest Fantasies by Ellie Channings is a new twist on the Arabian Nights as Allie brings home a bottle from the museum where she works and releases a Jinn who fulfills her every wish, including some action with her female best friend. This one had some hot moments between the Jinn and Allie.

Demonic Hunger by Candy Crum is another F/F story about Sade, a devil who seeks sexual release and finds it in a park with human Alexxi. I wasn’t impressed

Also an F/F offering is Adrienne’s Corruption, by Amanda R Browning in which Vampire Soraya turns Adrienne, and is then sentenced to be her lifelong companion. I still wasn’t impressed.

In The Vampire’s Master, by Roxanne Rhoads, Chloe moves to the country to avoid her nymphomaniac tendencies, only to find the caretaker the hottest man she’s ever seen.  Only he isn’t a man, he’s a vampire, and is in service to a more powerful master, and the two of them end up having sex with the master and his new bride before deciding serving him is a small price to pay for finding each other.  Some hot sessions in this one.

In Nocturne, by Scarlett Becker, Vincent, a favorite of the clients at The Toxic Shade takes an interest in newbie Isabelle, and unwittingly unleashes her inner succubus, whose powers have been frozen due to former lover, another demon in an epic battle.  This one was a little more interesting.

The final story, Double Gun Dealer, by Rue Volley, is about waitress Ava, who is recruited by Sai to fight flying demons as he tells her she was born a hunter, like him. This was the best of the stories, but not one I would read a second time.

Overall, this entire anthology was a disappointment, although it might appeal more to someone who was into paranormal stories and F/F action.

When you first started writing, did you have any idea you’d be writing BDSM/kinky books? Do you write in any other genre?

I actually started out writing a paranormal romance book purely vanilla and with no erotica in it. The book completely stalled at the sex scenes, I just couldn’t write a story and not get to the nitty gritty. I haven’t written in any other genre’s as of yet, but you never know.

Do you use a pen name? If yes (or no), why?

I do use a pen name currently. I live in a small town and wasn’t sure of the local community reaction.

Are you actively involved in BDSM? If so how do you identify yourself? Dom(me)/sub? Top/bottom? Switch?

I am not actively involved myself; although I do belong do a few chat groups and discussion boards and personally know people in the lifestyle.

At what point did you decide you wanted to write BDSM/kinky-themed erotica?

It wasn’t really an exact point. It is just the story that seemed to need to be written. I have always had an interest in BDSM and kink, so it was a natural progression in my writing.

Was there something that happened to you in your life or career that made you want to begin thinking about writing BDSM/kinky-themed erotica?

Nothing that I can think of that really happened to me personally. I just think mainstream people have the wrong idea about it and really need to be educated and sometimes fiction writing is easier to educate people than a lecture.

Why do you thiIs there one area of BDSM that you tend to write about more?nk that area creeps into your writing more than some others?

There doesn’t seem to be just one I write about exclusively, but I do tend to stay away from knife play. That just doesn’t seem to do anything for me personally, although my characters are currently vampires so there is still blood play.

Is there an area that is BDSM/kink-related that you haven’t written about yet that you’re interested in?

My current work in progress is based more on the emotional and sexual serving side, my main character female is completely submissive, but lacks trust from past issue, so any kind of whips and canes are completely a trigger for her. So it will focus more on the mind set of her and her Dom.

Do you write BDSM/kink erotica based on what you find interesting or sexy, or do you write more for your audience?

I write what I like and what I feel. I guess I mainly write what I like to read and hope everyone else likes it too.

What have you written in the past that you think your BDSM/kink fans might find interesting?

The only current work that I have published is The Black Lily Club. I am hoping to have more done next year.

Do you do any “hands-on” research when you’re writing BDSM/kinky themed erotica?

I don’t have an personal hands on experience in the area. I do however have some very close friends in the lifestyle who are open with ideas and experiences for me to sound board off of.

What is your favorite fetish? Why?

I don’t really think I have a fetish myself. I haven’t really thought about it. I do like to read erotica, if that counts.

What might be something of interest to your fans that you don’t think they know about you?

I am a mother of four, live in a small town and work as a nurse in my day job.

At this point in your career, do you think you’ll write more BDSM/kinky erotica?

I do have 2 more WIP started so I do hope things keep gaining momentum.

What’s the most surprising piece of feedback you’ve ever received from a fan of your writing?

I was told it was an education experience for someone who had never read the genre, but didn’t make them feel uncomfortable. I think that is a good piece of feedback to receive. My intent is for the story to be enjoyable and not uncomfortable.

Have you ever heard that a fan might have tried something from one of your stories and liked it? Did you take it as a compliment?

I haven’t yet had anyone tell me they have tried anything out of my book, but I do think it would be a compliment if they had.

When you’re writing BDSM/kinky-related erotica, is there a particular movie or music that you might watch or listen to that helps you get in that frame of mind? I tend to listen to Puddle of Mudd’s  Control. It sets the mood and mind set for me.

If someone new to your work is going to start with a story, which one would you recommend they read first?

Since I only have the one book out currently I guess you could start there. The Black Lily Club is available on amazon.com

Do you attend BDSM, kink, or fetish conferences? Or do you attend any other “vanilla” type of conferences? Attending any in the near future you want to mention?

I haven’t been to any yet, my day job and kids keep me pretty busy. I will definitely post on my facebook page if I plan to attend any events.

Who is your favorite BDSM/kinky author? Movie?

My favorite author as of right now would have to be Melissa Schroeder.

What is your favorite flavor ice cream? And since this interview is for BDSM Book Reviews, vanilla is not an option!

I love some chocolate peanut butter cup.

Mistress of Passion by Harley De Luca

Published by Hot Ink Press

In the realm of all things sexual, Rachel used her sexuality as a form of escape. She desperately tried to avoid her past to manipulate her future by delving into the dark recesses of all things kinky. With a fearful past, she turned her hurt, rage, confusion and unexplained passion into nothing but pure pleasure. Being a Mistress came naturally for Rachel, she was good at being a Dom. Only one challenge stood in her way, would she able to accept her life the way it was now or was she secretly yearning for something more?
 
Dominic was your all around “grade-A” male. Had the job, the money, the title, but didn’t have the will to live, not until he walked into London Leather. Like most of the rich and famous he needed the escape of normality, needed to be reminded of who he was when he was stripped of everything. He had been stripped before but not like this. Would he be able to withstand all he was about to receive or would he have to resort back to his old ways and just pray for death?
