Sting Factor (kink): 3 out of 5

Blurb:

Dana goes into the BDSM club not quite sure what she needs in order to move forward with her life. When she discovers the club is hosting a charity auction, she makes a desperate plan. If she can secure one of the men being auctioned, maybe she can find the peace that she’s been looking for. A stranger with no expectations—it just might work.

Eric agrees to be part of the club’s annual charity auction because he’s between subs at the moment, and it’s for a good cause. He’s a Dom used to knowing what a sub needs in a scene with him and how best to provide it. But what happens when the thing a sub needs most is for Eric to drop to his knees at her feet?

Review:

This is a wonderful short story however it really could be expanded. I would really like to know what happens between Dana and Eric on their dates and if they make it together as a couple. I loved the interaction between the two of them. Eric trying to play the submissive while still being the Dom and Dana knowing that he was letting her be in control was fun to read. He was a true Dom, giving the sub not only what they want but what they need.  The Perfect Fit series is turning out to be a wonderful series, keep them coming!

Sting Factor (kink): 5 out of 5

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!

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.

Review:

Blurb:

When Emma gets pulled over for speeding, the last thing she expects is for the cop to decide that his handcuffs would look a lot better on her than they do on his belt. Maybe her plan to own her sexuality by wearing a BDSM necklace wasn’t her best idea. Then again, seeing the heat in the man’s eyes as he orders her out of her car, maybe it was the best idea she’s ever had.

Drew can’t believe the risk he takes when he makes a move on the speeder in the convertible, but she’s damn near irresistible. When their encounter turns into an amazing afternoon of play, he knows he has to keep seeing her, even if it goes against all the rules he’s set for himself.

Neither Emma nor Drew is in the right place to start a relationship, so they agree to keep playing as long as they’re having fun together. And they are having a lot of fun together, especially when Drew’s best friend comes to town. Two men, one woman, and a sailboat. A recipe for pleasure, but how do Emma and Drew keep their hearts from wanting more than their practical lives are willing to deliver?

Review:

I wasn’t entirely sure what to make of this book during the first few pages. A college girl gets pulled over for speeding and then she and the cop have a great afternoon playing. But the story got better and better and the scenes were fantastic. The author really knows how to draw the reader into the story, to make the reader invested in the outcome of the characters. You’re going to love how both Drew and Emma grow and change. And for you ménage lovers out there, yes there is a brief scene for you as well! From what I saw it looks like this isn’t the only book in the series. That is definitely something to look forward to!

Bound by Sunlight

Rating: 4 out of 5 Paddles

Blurb:
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.

I enjoyed that Bound by Sunlight had an intense and interesting story behind it that the reader can get involved in. The BDSM isn’t necessarily secondary, but it’s not in your face either. I think that this story strikes a good balance between the plot and the sex. You do have to suspend reality at times to incorporate the magic that goes along with the characters, but the day to day parts of the relationship worked well for me.
