READ MY REVIEW

Kitchen Sink Dom

Blurb

Private Investigator Harrison Fisher’s new case isn’t going the way he’d hoped. Wearing a collar, pretending he’s submissive, searching for a Dom who can get him into Hell’s Bedroom, the elite BDSM club where a seventeen-year-old boy has gone missing—his first time working undercover is really stretching his boundaries. He’s always wondered if BDSM might be for him, but how can he be honest about what he wants sexually when he can’t be honest about anything else?

When Cash meets the handsome man brimming with nervous energy, he feels like he’s struck gold. Cash isn’t the most dominant of tops, but he’s got a wide repertoire of skills, and he’d be happy to practice every single one of them on Harry, the sub who’s so new to the scene he doesn’t even know his own kinks. But the closer he gets to Harry, the more obvious it becomes that Harry isn’t who he claims to be.

As Harrison flirts with both BDSM and Cash, one missing person turns into two. Someone at Hell’s Bedroom is abducting vulnerable subs, and it’s going to take more than just Harrison to bring them home. It’s going to take a whole kinky village.

Excerpt

“What kind of a scene are you interested in?” Cash asked.

“You’re the boss.” Harry darted a quick glance up at him—anxious but also something else.

“I can’t ‘be the boss’ without knowing what you like. Unless you want me to throw random kinks at you and see what sticks.”

“You might as well,” Harry said with a nerve-laced laugh. “I really don’t have any idea. I told you I was new, right?”

“You’re so new you don’t even know what you like?” That was… intriguing. Cash’s kink was driving his partner wild. Usually his partners told him what made them wild—maybe not in exact words, but he’d been around the scene long enough to understand which triggers went with which kinks—and then he executed on it. Very well, too.

If a guy wanted to be whipped, Cash broke out the flogger. If he wanted to be pissed on, Cash let loose. If someone wanted to be bound and gagged, Cash could turn them into a veritable pretzel. He had the skills to wield any implement, expose any vulnerability, satisfy any fetish. But as a service top, he was usually pushing buttons that had already been pretty well mapped out. What would it be like to find those buttons himself, to push them for the very first time?

Intriguing.

“I could definitely introduce you to some things.” And enjoy the fuck out of it. “I’m safe, sane, consensual, and I’ve got a lot of experience. Your friend can vouch for me.”

“My friend?”

“Tripp. That’s who you came with, right? I’ve only scened with him once, but he’s been around long enough to know how I play.”

“He’s nineteen,” Harry said turgidly, his semi-flirtatious smile gone. “How long has he been around, exactly?”

“Whoa, there.” Cash held up his hands to disavow whatever Harry was accusing him of. “The club I belong to cards people. He wouldn’t have been in there unless he was of age, and as long as he’s legally an adult, his exact age is none of my business. How old are you?”

“Do I look like a teenager?”

“I’m not the one who started with the accusations. Tripp can vouch for me. Who’s vouching for you?”

Harry fiddled with the collar he held in his lap, then looked up with more conciliatory eyes. “I’ll trade you IDs.”

Cash chucked. Whatever. He was an open book. He took out his wallet and flashed his driver’s license. The picture had only been taken a couple of years ago, but he looked like a frat boy in it. Despite his size, he gave off zero scary vibes. It was one of the reasons he had trouble attracting and keeping play partners, though not the only one.

Harry leaned forward to peer at the license, getting close enough that Cash could pick up on his cologne—something rich and masculine with a heavy musk component. The scent matched his carriage. Cash took a deep inhale and tried not to hope too hard that the two of them could negotiate a scene. If he wasn’t the right top for Harry, then he had no business scening with him, but man, he hoped he could be the right top.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this book, it wasn’t anything like us been expecting and it was all the better for that.

When I started reading it, I thought it’d be your typical kink exploration and sexual awakening, but no, it’s so much more.

It throws all of the above in with a dysfunctional family dynamic between Harrison and his older sister Taylor which still manages to be based in support for each other.

Then it adds in an element of suspense with subs going missing and potential human trafficking.

And finally, it brings together an eclectic bunch of people all working together to try and find 17-year-old Arlo.

I loved how everything entwined without ever becoming too overly complicated or dramatic.

Tanya obviously knows her kink and she knows how to play around with the intimacy of finding a perfectly matched pair.

Watching Cash and Harrison navigate their way to happiness via grumpy encounters and dawning awareness is a joy.

I can’t wait for the other two books in the series!

Cover

Blurb

Micah Vehyl considers himself an “opportunist.” Living in the underground city of Tartarus, he’s not misguided by the ideals of the esteemed and noble government, nor by the promise of re-homing and freedom on the surface. In a world where homosexuality is considered punishable by death, and only the rich and healthy are able to see the light of day, Micah has made a living for himself – among his older brother’s band of criminals and assassins.

Armed with a complex power he barely understands, Micah lives only for himself, removed from the fight of the so-called Resistance movement and the impending war against President Axel Tovar and the esteemed and noble government.

But a chance and erotic encounter with a deeply enigmatic Eden Voss awakens a passion within Micah…one that he thought to have vanished for good. A dangerous passion: one that could just get him killed.

Meanwhile, Eden Voss has secrets of his own: An officer in the Elysian Police Force, Eden risks more than just his career to maintain contact with Micah. But the connection between them cannot be denied and Eden is willing to throw it all away for the chance to spend more time in Micah’s presence.

Caught between passionate desire and the forces that strive to keep them apart, Eden and Micah must navigate treachery, politics, but worst of all – themselves, to find each other. And when injustice threatens all they hold dear, they must make decide if what they’ve started is worth fighting for. And if they’re willing to risk it all to be together in a world where their love is forbidden.

Trigger Warning: This book contains content that may be upsetting to some readers. Dark themes in this series include graphic depictions of violence, torture, human trafficking, police brutality, sexual assault and depictions of rape/non-consensual sexual situations.

Note, this is a trilogy and the HEA will come at the end of the series. This doesn’t end on a cliffhanger, but the story continues in book two and three.

Teaser 1

Teaser

“Well, how lucky am I to be allowed some of your attention for the night?” Micah leaned back, assessing Eden’s hard body, all wrapped in leather. He looked undeniably handsome.

Eden glanced up at him, almost shyly, before his eyes widened. Slowly, he reached out, allowing his hand to trace the scab that had formed on Micah’s lip, the bruises that lined his jaw. “What happened?” Micah felt himself flush, pulling quickly from Eden’s grasp.

“It’s nothing. One of the hazards of home.”

Eden’s sharp blue eyes narrowed. “It doesn’t look like nothing.”

“I said it’s nothing,” Micah said flatly. “Drop it, will you?”

Eden’s hands balled into fists. “If someone hurt you —”

“I can take care of myself,” Micah snapped. “I told you that the last time we met.”

“You did,” Eden conceded.

“Does it ruin your image of me?” Micah asked, quirking a brow. “Am I less appealing to you now that the goods have been damaged?”

Eden’s cheeks flared pink. “Nothing could do that. You’re all I’ve been thinking about since the last time.”
