Review:

Miranda’s Tempest is a book containing three short stories that have their basis in a classic literature piece from the past, but with a nicely kinked twist to it.

The first story in this trilogy is Miranda’s Tempest, borrowing the basic storyline of William Shakespeare’s ‘The Tempest’, but Tilly Hunter adds her own wicked twist to the story. Miranda is Prospero’s daughter and has been sent with her father and retinue to exile on an island. On the island, Miranda meets and falls in love with Caliban, who is definitely a different character than in the original. Caliban is Miranda’s Master and the two have our first good kink scene in our stories. On their way down to meet Miranda’s father after the storm washes his rivals onto the beach, Miranda and Caliban stumble across who they believe is a wayward sailor washed ashore.  He is in fact the son of the King of Naples and becomes completely enchanted with Miranda, pledging his loyalty to her and willingly becomes her slave. Your ancestor’s William Shakespeare this is not. It’s a fun story, with some very well crafted twists, but one does not need to be familiar with the original to appreciate the story.

Our second story gets to mess with the reader’s memory of their youth and Grimm’s Fairy tales. It is a completely BDSM take on Hansel & Gretel, all the way to the point of Hansel & Gretel in fact sneaking off in to the forest to be together sexually. The witch in fact is a beautiful, but cruel Domme who bewitches Hansel to use for a midsummer sexual sacrifice with her twelve magical sisters. Gretel is also under the witch’s spell, or so the reader is led to believe. In true fairy tale “happily ever after” endings, Hansel & Gretel make their escape, but not before Gretel learns something about herself, and her brother. As far as the kink factor, let’s just say Gretel throws a mean flogger.

Our final short story involves Penelope, the wife of Odysseus. The story takes place shortly before Odysseus arrives back home from his journeys where Penelope has a house full of suitors trying to woo Penelope and get Odysseus’s riches and lands. Through a very interesting sex scene with a come to life statue of Athena, Penelope is given a plan to rid herself of all the suitors save one before Odysseus gets back home and kills all the suitors AND Penelope’s hand maidens, who she would rather not lose as they have kept her sexually satiated while her husband wanders the world. Penelope basically becomes a Domme and runs each suitor through a rather interesting scene which breaks all but the last suitor, as Athena predicted. This last one Penelope has dress and pose as one of her hand maidens and keeps around for when Odysseus again goes gallivanting off in to the world.

All three stories are a fun read, and while it is not necessary to know anything of the originals they are based on, if you do it adds a nice little twist to them. The kink and the scenes are nicely hot, especially if you are in to FemDom. The fact that the three original stories all were from times when the concept of a FemDom would have been unthinkable makes for an even more wicked twist to the stories.

Review:

This was a bizarre little short story about a team of scientists working to reawaken a woman who was mummified in a geological event over a 1000 years previously.

Kim was serving a dominant mistress as a slave girl when she was mummified for the woman’s pleasure and then became mummified for real.

Can the scientific team of Dr. Nemesis, Dr. Servant, Dr. Deviant and Parp use Kim’s sexual responses to awaken her body from its thousand year sleep?

The sexual tension is high for a story as short as this. It includes whipping, caning, wax play, anal play, and intense bondage in addition to the mummification. There is also a non-consensual sex act and f/f play.

The story is too short to develop any plot or deep characterization. I would rate it as 3 paddles for story and 5 stings for kink.

Blurb:

Four kinky and erotic BDSM tales from the smutty pen of Lucy Felthouse.

Balancing the Books

Philip’s a well off man, and doesn’t need a job. But when he sees the gorgeous owner of his local bookshop, he applies for the role that’s being advertised there immediately. He’s totally stricken by the stunning Giovanna, and when it turns out she wants to boss him around in a sexual sense as well as an employment sense, he has no intention of refusing.

Feeling the Heat

Taylor and Maisie’s car has broken down. Luckily, Taylor’s handy with engines and is working hard to get them back on the road. Unfortunately, Maisie is getting annoyed at the amount of time he’s spending in the garage and confronts him. Instead of arguing back, though, Taylor comes up with an ingenious plan to keep Maisie quiet.

The Perfect Dom

Part of Mia’s nightwear is a pair of hotpants with SPANK ME emblazoned across the arse. Normally, that wouldn’t be a problem, but when she forgets that she has a houseguest and heads to the kitchen for a drink, she’s shocked to find Alex in her living room. Immediately spotting what he sees as an invitation written across Mia’s bottom, Alex makes an offer and Mia soon discovers that he is, in fact, the perfect dom.

Meet Me at the Spanish Steps

Darby is working at a holiday camp on the outskirts of Rome and is getting along just fine, with the exception of her sex life. For various reasons, she’s not getting what she wants in the bedroom, and her tastes are very particular. She turns to the Internet to get what she needs, and when she discovers William, it seems that he’s more than willing—and capable—of scratching that particular itch.

Review:

The Perfect Dom by Lucy Felthouse is a collection of four short stories. These stories are interesting in the fact that each one is quite different from the others as far as the scenario goes. In each brief story that she spins for her readers a different aspect of kink or BDSM is explored. For instance the first and second stories seem to explore funishment in two very different ways. Another explores the fun in being spanked by the right Dominant whether they are male or female. It also briefly touches on how a Dominant can make a mistake when they lose control. And finally one of the stories outright admits to being all about the woman’s desire for some kink in her life and finding the right person to help her explore that side of herself.  It is these differences between the four short stories that holds the reader’s attention.

However, the content of these stories seem to be more along the line of kink instead of BDSM. With that said the spell Lucy Felthouse weaves in her writing definitely makes up for the lack of BDSM. For those that are into a quick wham bam thank you Sir/Ma’am then this collection is definitely for you. Once again the stories are filled with lots of kink so enjoy!  Very well written all in all.

Review:

Olivia London’s Naughty Girl Notebook doesn’t really fit into the genres that are reviewed on this site. Basically it is a tale about the budding romance between a waitress and a teacher. The kinkiest part of the book is a fantasy the waitress has while masturbating after their first date, in which she imagines a scenario that involves a little spanking and forced oral and anal sex. Even that is mostly alluded to rather than shown in any detail. The next kinkiest scene: while at a restaurant she is instructed to visit the restroom and remove her panties then return to the table – oo-la-la!

The overall tone of the story is romantic and kind of chatty, with British sensibilities. Although the setting is Seattle, judging by the idiomatic expressions and phrasing the writer seems to be from the UK. The significance of the title’s naughty girl notebook is, as a motivational tool the waitress chronicles her bad behavior at work in a spiral notebook with a picture of her lover clipped to the inside flap. She envisions herself as a Pygmalion-like character because of her lack of education and social sophistication, and sets out to better herself and be worthy of the teacher’s love.

Doubtless I am not the target audience for Naughty Girl Notebook. Although this short story – at 17 pages I hesitate to call it a book – is well written, I did not find it particularly engaging. And since the kink is almost nonexistent, I am thankful of its brevity – this is after all a site devoted to reviewing BDSM-related books, which it is not.

While there are plenty of hot descriptions of the sexual kind it seems as though this author wanted this character to be a bit too naive for her own good.

Jilly is a sexually frustrated woman. She runs everyday but doesn’t seem to have anyone to call her own. She spots her new neighbors and from there the fun insues.

Ok, this book is not that long, so I am not expecting major chacter development. Whar I got from Jilly was she needed a fix and she got it. I suppose if this was a hook to get me to read more by this author I would not. I have read much better, hotter BDSM novellas.

This would be for people that enjoy fun, flirty erotica. I enjoy things a bit more hardcore. Take note my rating is not because the writing was poor but really because the type of BDSM written was not for me.

Review:

Kay Jaybee is a prolific author of considerable renown who specializes in writing kinky books and short stories. Her latest collection of three short erotic stories, Tied to the Kitchen Sink, is an exercise in fanciful erotica with D/s overtones that will please both her current and future fans. None of the vignettes in this slim volume are meant to mirror real life, but by no means does that stop them from being sexy and enjoyable reads.

The title story involves a young man coming home to find a naked woman chained to his kitchen sink, a birthday present from his roommate, who is discreetly absent. For reasons not adequately explained, this scenario is one of his favorite fantasies and sort of dovetails into the woman’s as well. Before this very short story concludes there is a bit of spanking with a wooden spoon and the suggestion that some sort of waxing fun will be in the offing.

Next up is Becky, a story that portrays an outrageously depraved work environment, in which a strict disciplinarian boss rules his employees through corporal punishment and sexual humiliation. Even for times prior to sexual harassment laws, this scenario is way over the top, yet as a fantasy it is powerfully erotic. Whereas it is not really possible to suspend disbelief while reading this story, it is easy to be aroused by the actions taking place in it.

The Bad Poet is a somewhat lyrical tale of the seduction of a prospective submissive by a determined domme, which takes place initially by email. She sends her prey a technically flawed poem describing what she will do to him when he comes to her lair, knowing he will be intrigued enough to accept her invitation. The scenario that unfolds when he shows up and succumbs to her persuasive charms is memorably erotic – without a doubt the highlight of the entire book.

Synopsis:

There’s good and evil in everyone,  even those who play sex games at the Plaza. But sometimes the lines get blurred and it takes an encounter near the edge to discover what’s real and if there’s such a thing as right and wrong.

Review:

In essence this is a story about Luke and Maya told through four different intersecting stories:

Plaza Erotica – this story is mostly from Maya’s point of view as she prepares for a rendezvous with Luke.

A Dream Come True – here we learn  about how our characters meet for the first time. The language in both stories is difficult to get through and distracts from the stories. We  learn that they had a relationship for a time and that she ended it because he became to controlling. While we do learn more about the characters here (and finally their first names!) I still didn’t feel any real connection to them. It was as if they were just vague figures that someone was discussing, as if you were listening to two friends talking about people you didn’t know.

Birds and Bees – suddenly we see a glimmer of hope, writing that is both descriptive and tells us a story, teasing us just enough so we want more. We find ourselves in the present watching the characters interact with each other instead of hearing about it afterwards as we do in the first two stories. A friend of Maya’s named Wendy (aka Blondie) enters the story and the two play together then meet up with Luke.

Blondie – a very short interlude where we meet Wendy again and follow her through a scene with another couple, and then again with Luke and Maya.

I will admit I am not sure I would have finished this if it wasn’t for the fact I was doing a review. While this is not a life changing book it does pose some decent questions and has moments I found intriguing. My issue was with the style of language and its blatant attempt to be “intellectual” for lack of a better description.

I am the first to admit I am not a fan of “high-minded literature”, however I also think that just  because a book is what is considered“genre” does not mean it does not need to be well written and thought out. Some of the most beautifully written books I’ve read are considered “erotica” and yet some of the worst books I’ve ever read are considered “literature”. I felt much of the book was forced into being something it didn’t want to be.

I may try another of this author’s books now that I have a better feel for the author’s style as I was able to take in more during my second pass of this book while writing this review.

Review:

After reading the first chapter of Brenton Darke’s Her Journey Into Submission I was struggling to be objective as a reviewer because it is written well enough but it is way too prosaic for my tastes, plus lamentably the author chose to employ the dreaded capitalizing pronouns for masters convention, which I find extremely tiresome. Even so, being obligated to read the whole thing and be fair, I plunged ahead ever hopeful that it would get better and, miraculously, it did.

Realistically, at twenty-one pages this is a short story rather than a book. As the title implies, it is a tale about a novice sub entering the BDSM realm. The first chapter is an idealized dramatization of the dance that leads up to a newbie sub and her prospective Dom building a relationship and trust before embarking on her inaugural scene. I can only speculate that the target audience for this theme is comprised of sub-curious or wannabe sub women, certainly not experienced kinksters.

The second and final chapter involves the same characters a little further on in their relationship, and this time they are branching out into an elaborate and imaginative role play scenario that concludes with some fairly intense and erotic corporal punishment. So the aforementioned targeted consumers are treated to a little more advanced view of BDSM fun and games in a fun and positive light. More sophisticated readers can skip or skim over the introduction and enjoy the finale as a standalone short story. In either case, there’s no plot to speak of, but that is often the case with erotica, regardless of how well or poorly it is written.

The main thing that BDSM erotica fans should know about Victoria Blissee’s Fulfill Me is that it is primarily a romantic erotic book, which happens to have segments featuring femdom scenarios and a little naughty spanking. The femdom elements of the story transpire when the main character, in an attempt to reel-in the man of her dreams, whom she has lusted after and stalked for years, postures as a mistress and succeeds at fulfilling his fantasies but not her own.

Ultimately she gets bored with his need for a D/s only sexual relationship and kicks him to the curb. From there she finally hooks up with Mr. Right – not vanilla exactly but not into BDSM – and, after almost losing him, appears to be headed for happily ever after by the end of the book. This is not the sort of book I would gravitate to, but it is fairly well written. The story is told in a chatty style from the prospective of a British woman in her late twenties. It has a coherent plot, well-rounded characters and lots of steamy sex – almost too much actually.

Two short stories;

EIGHT MAIDS A MILKING

A harem fantasy rife with purple prose. I would categorize this as erotic with an emphasis on a milking fetish. It is filled with elaborate descriptions of the salacious adventures of a captured commander. Lord Goldtop manages to soldier through the requirements of the Sultan and his wives. Fluffy and fun with a colonial tone, but the excessive use of adjectives distracted me.

THE CAPTAIN AND THE MILKMAID

Nautical misadventures and a secret identity allow Humility to witness the play of her fellow shipmates. Oddities like swabbing the deck in a gale fueled rain make the reader go—say what? Needless to say, there is a price to pay when the captain discovers her subterfuge and he has a taste for fresh milk.
