Sting Factor (kink): 5 out of 5

Review:

This was an emotionally charged, highly sensual book with excellent characters and an intriguing plot.

Lara was in an impossible position. Her father refused to change his decades’ old business practices that were driving the family business into bankruptcy. She needed someone on the board to back her. When her friend Erin suggested that Lara marry her brother, Connor, Lara at first scoffed. But when she found out Connor had offered to buy a failing offshoot of the company and been turned down, she rethought her position and asked him to marry her.

She envisioned a marriage of convenience, but Connor had other ideas. If she married him, she would also be his submissive. They decided to try a few nights together so Lara could see if she could handle his demands. She did not just handle them, she thoroughly enjoyed them-and Connor himself. The problem was Connor did not open his heart to anyone. He was strangely attracted to Lara, but his father’s example led him to believe love was messy and emotions dangerous. Can Lara overcome his resistance to love so these two can reach a professional and personal merger?

It took a little bit of time to really get into this story, but once past the tedious negotiation stage, it became riveting. The sex was hot and involved bondage, whipping, spanking and more. I liked Lara, who was a strong woman who felt an obligation to her family. Connor was an awesome Dom, careful with his submissive and watching closely to give her what she needed. He just needed a few kicks to wake him up.

Overall, a very enjoyable read by an author who has become a favorite.

Blurb:

Publisher’s Note: A Good sub Would was previously published in the Doms of Dark Haven 2 anthology which is no longer available. It has not been re-edited or revised for this edition.

Shelby, a wanna-be sub, hasn’t found a Dom strong enough to push past her need to be in control. Her experiences as a sub have been yawn-inducing. She’s fantasized plenty, though, about Trevor Lawton, one of Dark Haven’s legendary, mouthwateringly firm Doms.

As the stakes get higher at the charity poker match, Dom Trevor Lawton is fascinated by the woman kneeling across the table from him. Problem is, she’s not a good sub. Oh, she tries, and she’s lovely. But she’s not very good at following orders. The woman needs a firm, unyielding hand…his.

Review:

Our kinksters are Trevor Lawton and Shelby Salazar who is a a sub who has been topping from the bottom.

Master Trevor wins Shelby at BDSM poker game. She’s been topping from the bottom for a long time but when Master Trevor wins her for the week he gives her what she truly needs. Fantasy type BDSM scenes tame Shelby and they quickly develop strong bonds for each other.

I like how Ms Cartwright writes BDSM and will always be looking for more of her work.

It had to be her. He won’t be satisfied until he claims her. Kennedy Aldrich has perfected the art of dodging any romantic entanglement that will lead to marriage. That is until he sees Mackenzie Farrell at a BDSM gathering. When they meet, he’s entranced by her intelligence and submission, not to mention her stunning good looks. For the first time, he has met a woman who captivates his interest on every level, someone he wants to share his life with. Mackenzie is overwhelmed by Kennedy’s attentions. A failed marriage taught her to distrust men, and she’s vowed never to walk down the aisle again. It takes all her resolve to resist the devilishly handsome Dominant. After all, the whole world knows of his legendary reputation with women. Every feminine instinct warns that this man will demand more than she can offer. But she hasn’t counted on Kennedy’s determination to claim her and prove that love is worth any risk.

Review:

This was a sexy addition to the author’s Bonds series.

Kennedy Aldrich isn’t looking for any long term relationship, but he has jumped in to save McKenzie before. When he meets her again in his BDSM club, the attraction he felt then was increased. Just dancing with her to show her ex she had moved on had set off sparks for both of them, but neither had acted on them. But now Kennedy was of a mind to move forward with Zee.

However, McKenzie is wary of relationships after a bad breakup. She trusted Kennedy with her body, but can she trust him with her heart and allow him to claim their future?

This was a lively, emotional read with a vulnerable heroine, yummy hero and intricate plot.  Expect a variety of BDSM play, both in and out of the club.

Review:

This was a lively, intriguing read with a likeable hero and heroine and a captivating story line combined with some sizzling hot sex scenes.

Sarah had a wonderful relationship with Reece, but when she came across the collar he planned to give her she was overwhelmed and fled. But in the two years since then, she hasn’t found anyone to compare. She has also grown and is more sure of herself. She works with one of Reece’s friends to bring herself back into his life, telling him she is willing to take whatever he can dish out. She wants to see if she can get over him.

Reece was devastated when Sarah ran away and he tells her he will give her a single weekend and nothing more.

Can Sarah overcome the trust issues she has created, her guilt, and Reece’s sense of betrayal to establish a relationship with the one man who meets her needs?

I loved Sarah’s strength and how caring Reece was in spite of his anger and betrayal. The attraction between them leaps from the pages.

Expect flogging, caning, anal play, and sensation play.

She still craved him… The sight of a collar in her boyfriend’s drawer had stunned Sarah. Panicking, she had fled. But no other man has ever been his equal.

Two years ago, the woman he’d hoped to collar and marry disappeared. So Reece McRae is stunned to find his former girlfriend on her knees, behaving as the submissive he’d always wanted.

Is it too late? He should refuse her, but an undeniable sexual attraction consumes him.

Sarah had been under Reece’s spell from the moment she met him. When she found a steel collar in his drawer, she panicked. The idea of a lifetime of his relentless demands, sensual and otherwise, suffocated her.

In the years they’ve been apart, she hasn’t met his equal. Now, convinced one last night will vanquish his memory, she sets out to seduce him.

The Reece she returns to is even more determined to have his way. Is she now strong enough, brave enough, to surrender to his love?

Excerpt

“You can have what you want. But there will be rules around it. No promises, no expectations. We’ll both call it what it is, exorcising the demon of the past. After the weekend, you go home, we never see each other again.”

With boldness that surprised her, scared her, she asked, “And if that’s not enough?”

“Right now, that’s not an option. You’d have to earn my trust, show me you deserved it. If I scared you before, I would terrify you now. Before I’d consider anything with you, Sarah, I would test you in ways you couldn’t imagine.”

“Are you trying to scare me?”

“Is it working?”

“A little,” she admitted.

“Good. You should be frightened. The collar would only be the beginning of what I would demand from you. I wouldn’t be satisfied with anything less than your total honesty. I would want to own every one of your reactions. Even that wouldn’t be enough. I’d want to know your every thought, every fear, every inhibition. I’d want to hear every scream and savour every tear. And I’d demand you turn to me to wipe them. There would be no place for you to hide.”

The chill in his voice rippled through her.

“Well, what will it be, Sarah? Shall I just walk you back to your room after dinner?” He raised a brow. “How brave are you now?”

sierra2 Sometimes I try to act mature and professional. And then sometimes, I just can’t contain myself, and it’s as if my lungs are filled with helium and I float on the air and run around squeezing and fist-bumping.

Thank YOU, BDSM Book Reviews for putting a happy grin on my face and keeping it there for weeks!

I was beyond thrilled that Over The Line won the Best BDSM Book of 2013 award. Honestly, that was the book I was looking forward to writing. I love cowboys! When I was in high school, my best friend was a barrel racer. One summer we traveled to numerous rodeos. Many Friday nights there was a dance. And I had the opportunity to experience cowboy manners. Le sigh. I adored the way they’d tip their hat. Or, my, my, move it out of the way as the leaned in for a kiss… Even now, my heart pitter patters!

Each book in the Mastered series from Totally Bound has featured a theme that I loved. With This Collar was inspired by a friend’s mountain wedding, as was the setting for the series.

I loved the idea of having an unconventional BDSM club. That could be in part because I’m not very conventional. I decided to call it the Den. And because it is set on a secluded lot of land, I would be able to include outdoor play. And the outdoor scene in Over The Line was one of my favorites of all time.…

One of the things that intrigued me the most about the entire series, however, is the man who owns the entire estate, Master Damien Lowell.

Master Damien is featured in all six books of the Mastered series from Totally Bound. And he intrigued me from the opening scene of the first book when he performs a wedding ceremony, then, in private, presides over a collaring ceremony.  

As the one who runs the estate, he’s ultimately responsible for what happens at the Den, a Dom amongst Doms.

By the time I started writing book six, IN THE DEN, I knew that a man as strong as Damien needed to be paired with a woman who would capture his imagination, ensnare him, shake up his single life.

My heroine, Catrina, was also inspired by a real-life person who offered insight along the way. Catrina is a Domme, someone Damien considers to be off-limits.

But that can’t stop the attraction he feels for her. In fact, it fuels it. What’s more irresistible than the unattainable?

As for Catrina, she has little interest in Damien. She is over domineering men. Experience has taught her a few hard lessons, and she’s vowed to keep her independence. She won’t be subservient to any man. Why would she when she has the hottest men at the Den ready to worship her?

But Damien is a Dom through and through. He will settle for nothing less than her complete submission. And he’ll use any means possible to convince her…

Welcome to the Den, where the wildest of fantasies become reality, lives are transformed, and limits are shattered…

Review:

Blurb:

Things couldn’t get worse. It was bad enough that Maggie had to spend the days with her boss and nemesis. Now to find out he’s a Dom at her favorite place to play?

Maggie Carpenter needs an escape from her everyday life and her overbearing boss. David Tomlinson has ruined her life and career by acquiring her family’s business and tying her to an untenable employment contract.

So she and her friend head for an evening at the Den to explore their wildest fantasies – only to find David there looking ridiculously sexy with a bare chest and a set of handcuffs attached to his belt loop.

David is just as shocked to find his spitfire employee at the Den. He leans against the wall, watching, unable to wrap his mind around the idea that the woman who constantly challenges him might be a sub. But when another Dom approaches her and she casts her gaze down, he sees another side of her.

His reaction to the submissive Maggie is immediate and sizzling hot and so is the unwelcome jealousy he experiences. He’s always had a strict no-fraternisation rule, but he’s determined to have her in his cuffs before the evening is out, despite the dozens of reasons he shouldn’t. He wants Maggie surrendered to him, in his cuffs, literally as well as figuratively.

Review:

Can’t get any better than running into your boss at a kink club! The tension is already high, they have a rocky working relationship to begin with. Maggie constantly fighting David at work and then now he’s at her club and crap, he’s a Dom to boot! Talk about being between a rock and a hard place!

Just like the negotiator that David is, he manages to talk Maggie into one night. One night of bliss and relief for the both of them! Maggie tries really hard to keep it to that one night, but her nightmares won’t let her. So off she goes to David’s office begging to be spanked. What Dom in his right mind turns that down, especially when it’s what he really wants too!

Luckily for Maggie and David, they really do work well together, both in and out of a scene until the day she accidentally breaks his trust. Now she has to figure out how to fix this – fix it for work and fix it for their personal relationship. She’s finally admitted to herself, David is right and she needs him just as much as he needs her, both in and out of the boardroom!

Fantastic read! Another winner for Sierra Cartwright.
