Join Little Corey on his journey out of the fire, away from the crippling doubt and uncertainties, and into the healing, adrenaline-inducing, sweet, filthy, and safe embrace of three men starting to realize their dynamic might not be complete just yet.

On a bad day, I blamed my stupid, damaged, autistic brain. No one forced me to be with him. No one forced me to accept what he told me. That I was difficult. Difficult to handle, difficult to please…heck, even difficult to go out to dinner with, considering all my texture issues. On a bad day, I believed every word he said. I was lucky to have him. I loved him so, so much for putting up with me. I was gonna leave my friends and family behind, move with him to Denver, and we were going to be happy together forever.

Then Master Greer opened his big mouth, and I didn’t know what to believe anymore. He was my friend, my favorite Sadist in the whole world, and he was dating two amazing men who were also saying stuff that was painful to hear. Like, I wasn’t difficult at all. Like, the man who was supposed to protect me, love me, and take care of me in our Daddy/Little relationship was in reality abusing me.

I started having good days thanks to them. Good, bewildering, mind-numbing, eye-opening, very good days. It was just extremely important I didn’t get confused by their kindness. They opened up their home to me as an act of friendship. Nothing more, nothing less. As soon as I felt better, I’d be on my way again.


The Game Series is a BDSM series where romance meets the reality of kink. Sometimes we fall for someone we don’t match with, sometimes vanilla business gets in the way of kinky pleasure, and sometimes we have to compromise and push ourselves to overcome trauma and insecurities. No matter what, one thing is certain. This is not a perfect world—and maybe that’s why the happily ever after feels so good.

About The Author

I’m often awkwardly silent or, if the topic interests me, a chronic rambler. In other words, I can discuss writing forever and ever. Fiction, in particular. The love story—while a huge draw and constantly present—is secondary for me, because there’s so much more to writing romance fiction than just making two (or more) people fall in love and have hot sex.

There’s a world to build, characters to develop, interests to create, and a topic or two to research thoroughly.

Every book is a challenge for me, an opportunity to learn something new, and a puzzle to piece together. I want my characters to come to life, and the only way I know to do that is to give them substance—passions, history, goals, quirks, and strong opinions—and to let them evolve.

I want my men and women to be relatable. That means allowing room for everyday problems and, for lack of a better word, flaws. My characters will never be perfect.

Wait…this was supposed to be about me, not my writing.

I’m a writey person who loves to write. Always wanderlusting, twitterpating, kinking, cooking, baking, and geeking. There’s time for hockey and family, too. But mostly, I just love to write.

Delicious mix of spice and sweet as The Game continues

60852570._SY475_Adrift in the Embers: The Game Series #7 by Cara Dee

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Well that was utterly delicious and sweet, just like Corey Cruz himself.

Cara’s back to the top of The Game with this book, it was an absolute joy to watch how Greer, Sloan and Archer enfolded Corey into their family and helped him recover from the abuses (non sexual) his previous “Daddy” had inflicted on his mental state.

Corey is a beautiful mixture of vulnerability, brattishness, sass and sparkle, but his autism also means he sometimes struggles to understand how he’s been manipulated by Marcus, the man who should have been protecting him when he regresses into his Little persona.

This was a read in one go book from the minute I picked it up, I needed to find out what was going to happen with Corey, would he move to Denver, away from all his family and friends, would Marcus get away with his awful behaviour (which we’ve seen glimpses of in previous instalments) and would Greer be able to stand back or would he finally intervene?

All these questions, and more, were answered beautifully as Cara spun this tale of recovery, of finding a family who support, encourage, enhance and protect everyone who comes in their orbit.

And OMG this is one of the hottest, but also amazingly emotionally charged, relationships in the series so far as each one of the four men finds their own personal connection individually, in pairs, as a triad and also as a quartet.

I don’t think I could have loved this book more if I tried!
