This is Tessler’s private journal. The journal he used as a story outline when he penned his world famous Black Key Trilogy. The three-book set was semi-autobiographical by nature that closely followed the sexual awakening of a young Tessler as he grew into the man he’d become today. The journal entries were emotional and incredibly personal as Tessler chronicled his journey as an inexperienced innocent, to an intrigued intern, and out the other side as an able-bodied man with decidedly different tastes than those from before he first stepped through the doors of The Black Key Club.

Tessler guarded this journal and the secrets it held between the pages for years to protect himself from the possible judgment of others should the book ever be publicly exposed.
Now, he wants to share his journal with you – on his own terms – before someone tries to take that power away from him.

The Black Key Journal is an erotic novella. It is a companion piece for “More Than My Words,” Book 3 in the Guarding The Gods Series. To better enjoy Tessler’s journal, it is strongly suggested that you read Book 3 before you read this novella.

There is a considerable amount of erotic content in this novella with numerous adult MM sexual situations not meant for younger readers. This is a fictional journal written in first person from one point of view: Tessler’s.

Absolutely loved this second instalment in the Nira Chronicles

Zercy (The Nira Chronicles, #2)Zercy by Kora Knight

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

So book one would have had more stars if it hadn’t been for the cliff hanger, this one has a sort of cliff hanger but I honestly don’t care because the rest of it was brilliant.

I love me a good sci-fi story and Kora Knight is excellent at the world building needed to make a narrative work when it involves humans and seven foot tall horned aliens!

There’s some ridiculously hot and downright dirty sex in this one too, the bed scene with the living plants in particular was wonderfully kinky, but there’s also a truly beautiful love story at the heart of this book.

Alec and Zercy were an incredible pair, finding common ground in spite of their differences in not only species but also in their station. I loved the slow building of their friendship outside of the insane sexual chemistry.

There’s the same load of action and humorous asides in this as the first one and the book is very “visual”, I would love to see this on the screen but it’d no doubt be too erotic for mainstream audiences!

Now I want to know what’s going to happen next, who plotted to kill the Krie, will Gesh and Noah sort things out, did Bailey end up with his merman and is Chet not quite as adverse to Roni as he claims to be 🙂

More Clare London treats with these erotic shorts

That's Entertainment!That’s Entertainment! by Clare London

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Joint review with Santa, Actually

These two books are ridiculously silly (in a good way). They are unadulterated smutty fluff and I thoroughly enjoyed them both.

The punning on “porn style” film titles, especially the Christmas related ones, had me almost crying with laughter, and the way Jack and Grady would just drop everything to go at it was just so insanely silly it worked.

Two fun short books which won’t do anything other than provide a chuckle.

Book two of the Kings of Hell MC hits all the right creepy and sensual notes

My Dark Knight (Kings of Hell MC, #2)My Dark Knight by K.A. Merikan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I honestly don’t know where to start with this one there are so many parts where I was left with my jaw dropping or thinking ‘did I really just read that?!’ and picking just one out seems like a disservice to the rest.

So, I will begin with the ending, which was all ends up awesome, full of humour, emotions, scorching hot, commitment and creepy edges.

This book is a masterpiece walk along the line between a contemporary motorcycle club romance and a paranormal packed with villainous deeds and the Merikan writing duo come out on top as always.

From the off this story screams quietly to itself, things are not normal in the Kings of Hell clubhouse and now it’s VP Knight’s turn to fall down the rabbit hole as he encounters his online nemesis The Count, a lover of the madman and serial killer William Fane who inhabited the house some two centuries earlier.

Things get off to a bad start as Elliot, the man behind the facepaint, keeps pushing all of Knight’s protective instincts while simultaneously rousing all his desires. And OMG when they finally let loose on those desires things explode.

The level of “WTF did I just read” switches between seriously creepy and disturbingly arousing at the same time and there are some scenes which I know I’ll be thinking about for quite some time.

Sex is, as ever with these two writers, beyond hot and approaching the stratosphere but it also carries a hint of protection and a needy desire to belong which is unique to Knight and Elliot.

The way Elliot lives to feel wanted is delivered with delicious surrender and Knight’s commanding presence overwhelms the senses. Together their dynamic leaps off the page and there are times when a cold shower becomes a real need, especially once the ghostly malevolence takes hold.

I am loving this series so much and book three shows no sign of letting up on the incredible ride. Oh and that cover from Natasha Snow = swoon!

Cliffhangers, I hate cliffhangers!

Kríe Captivity (The Nira Chronicles #1)Kríe Captivity by Kora Knight

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This book lost a star for the cliffhanger, I truly hate them!

However, it is a very good start to this new sci-fi world from Knight.

I’ve loved her previous two erotic romance with BDSM twist series’ and was looking forward to this one too.

Overall she delivers a rich world with an intriguing cast of new species and culturally diverse behaviour with the spice and heat of an erotic romance mixed with an element of mystery thriller – think Avatar with more sexy times.

There’s not actually a lot of sex in this one but when it kicks off, it does so in style and with a flair of the exotic to carry the reader along.

Just need the next book to hurry up and be out soon now!

Absolutely blown away by this debut novel

In the Wreckage (Metahuman Files, #1)In the Wreckage by Hailey Turner

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It’s not often I find myself shocked into a lack of words over anything but this debut novel just did that to me.

Set in the difficult to write field of sci-fi, the world building is utterly superb, think Marvel Agents of SHIELD levels of military complexity, coupled with all the Men from UNCLE (original TV series please!) slash you might ever have dreamed of, with a healthy dose of erotic porn with plot on top and you might come close to how I felt reading this book.

It’s an absolute triumph from the initial set up through to the explosive meeting of the two MCs, to the Tom Clancy level of espionage twists which drive the narrative forward, to the camaraderie of the Alpha Team at the amusingly named MDF (sorry peeps but that just reminds me of home design programmes here in the UK) Government agency and all points in between.

I never felt bogged down in jargon and each team member’s special ability which explained well without a lot of exposition and there was enough outside the main spy/sci-fi story to keep me enthralled.

Rounding it out are some of the hottest sex scenes I’ve read outside of a full on erotica or porn site, this is explosive levels as Jamie’s super strength and durability is out to excellent use in wringing Kyle out into utter bliss.

You name it, there’s probably some of it here, edging, dildos, orgasm denial, window sex, cock rings (and how often do you read about those, even in dedicated BDSM stories?!), breath play, it runs the gamut but it’s never done gratuitously or just to thrill. Each time these two men come together there is passion and emotion and a deep connection.

I cannot wait to read more in this setting and I believe it’s Alexei’s story next so that’ll be a cracker I’m sure. Bonus points for awesome cover too.
