Fivesome filthy perfection from the Merikans

TheirBounty-KAM-f-tag_900Their Bounty by K.A. Merikan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is pure Merikan – filthy in the best way, dirty and hot as a volcano, just a little bit twisted but with a core of solid steel romance at the centre.

Four men, each uniquely drawn with vibrant personalities and talents and a fifth, the anchor around which to secure their kinks and desires and the who drives the narrative forward.

I can’t make up my mind who I love best. Tank, the strong Daddy, taking care of his crew, or Boar, enthusiastic and sweet with a need to connect, fiery Pyro, hot-tempered and sexually aggressive, or Drake, sullen and hiding a painful secret.

Each of them brings something different for Clover and he shamelessly hoards all their desires and affections.

The suspense element is, as always with this writing duo, well planned and still brings a surprise even though it’s blindingly obvious once you know!

I am loving this new series.

An intriguing debut but I’m still not sure how I feel about it!

The Rake's Regress (To the Manor Reborn, #1)The Rake’s Regress by Lollie Plantagenet

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I’m not sure what to say about this book.

I don’t like cliffhangers and this stops with a sort of one, it’s a morass of different tropes and none dominates, none of the characters are particularly sympathetic.

And yet, it’s an utterly absorbing narrative which draws you in as you try to get your head round what’s actually going on.

I can’t say it had a sense of place to me, it’s set in Yorkshire but could be anywhere, there’s nothing to really identify the location as being uniquely Yorkshire.

It also is an Edwardian historical, but again apart from the references to titles and servants, there wasn’t much which gave it a sense of the past.

But the quality of writing is excellent, as is the imagination needed to come up with this idea in the first place. I would recommend it for lovers of quirky and kinky but it’s also not particularly sexy or erotic yet either.

It’s a puzzle and that’s why my rating falls in the middle. Even with the cliffhanger, I’m not sure I’m invested enough to read more. I’m not ruling it out though.

An intriguing debut.

A masterful exploration of sexual discovery from Jay

Mud & LaceMud & Lace by Jay Northcote

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

There’s not many people do this type of sexual exploration and awakening quite as well as Jay does as far as I’m concerned.

He’s a master at not only handling the awkwardness of someone realising their sexuality isn’t what they’d always expected, but also at bringing in the inadvertent hurt that can come alongside someone exploring how they express gender as well.

With this one, there’s a double dose of confusion as each of the men in this pairing has some way to go in working out just what their emotions are telling them.

For Wicksy aka Simon, it’s knowing that underneath the sexy hot Lady Gogo is a man and coming to terms with the fact he loves the femininity of a drag queen but also the male bodily parts.

For Charlie it’s realising that exploring his feminine side doesn’t necessarily mean he wants to change his gender and become a woman.

Together the progression of their relationship starts as a hot and a little bit kinky hook up and moves into genuine feelings as Charlie’s feminine layers peel back more and Simon continues to be attracted to the person he finds underneath.

The sex in this starts off all kinky and dirty talk, which both men are turned on by, it’s not just Simon pretending he’s with a woman, but turns into a very much mutually loving connection.

Most of the angst comes from Simon working his way through his feelings about Charlie’s gender and how he deals with it felt relatable to me.

I loved both characters, they’re each full of awareness that they could be on the verge of something special and their relatively young ages (20 and 24) never actually came across as anything other than mature enough to know their own minds.

There’s great support from the other Rainbow Place cast and we get to meet journalist Quentin again, who I hope is going to be the subject of book five.

No sign of his significant other on the horizon though if it will be his romance next. This whole series is a delight though.
