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.

Short – but oh so sweetly kinky – romance from Ari McKay

His To Serve (The Candy Cane Club #1)His To Serve by Ari McKay

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is a short (my reason for only three stars not four) but incredibly sweet exploration of the Dom/sub aspect of the BDSM world, specifically as a service sub.

It’s perhaps a little bit “insta-love” for my liking but I did absolutely believe that Cameron woke up to the fact he was a natural born sub with a desire to please Anton once he’d experienced his first scene.

The book has a very interesting premise, in that Cameron is an actor seeking authenticity in a role which requires him to play a submissive and I thought it worked really well.

As a couple, they’re ridiculously sweet together, each finding a perfect partner, as well as a BDSM companion.

Brilliant sneak into what made Theoden who he is in New Haven

Theoden (New Haven)Theoden by Nicholas Bella

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Brilliant exploration of what makes the greatest vampire tick and how he was turned by Ara centuries ago.

Theoden is Nicholas Bella at his kinky best, full of gorgeous erotic exploration of the power of sexual desire and the violence which comes from being all powerful in a world which doesn’t know the dangers living within it.

I loved how from the very start there was something different about the young Italian child who was being harshly brought up in a priory and subjected to an austere and joyless life while others around him are of the forbidden fruit.

His warrior talents were fully expressed once he was turned and the rebellious journey he had to go through before he became accepting of his fate mirrors a similar one his child Noel goes through in the later books in the New Haven series.

Reading this gives an insight into why Theoden is as ruthless and powerful as he is and gave me a hankering to read all the other books again!

Simply brilliant Rainbow Cove romance

Tender with a Twist (Rainbow Cove, #2)Tender with a Twist by Annabeth Albert

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Simply brilliant writing, that’s what Tender with a Twist is. Unlike book one, this not only touches on loss and heartbreak but it also has some of the best emotionally driven BDSM kink I’ve ever read.

Each time Logan puts Curtis through a scene the feelings underpinning their attraction to each other bleed out. I was interested in Curtis in book one, it’s not often a chainsaw carver pops up as a character, but Logan was sort of just there in the background at the tavern.

Well not in this one, here Logan is very much front and centre and his quiet strength and determination to be the person he truly knows he is carries the narrative forward at all times.

The humour is gentle, Curtis’ fears are palpable, he knows he’s not the typical ‘hero’, the one people flock to. Life’s beaten him down so much over the years and he’s not sure he can cope with any more.

But Logan, wonderfully optimistic and driven Logan, knows he can bring light and much needed release both sexually and emotionally, to Curtis.

Their scenes together are topping Annabeth’s efforts in her latest Out of Uniform story for being the most kinky. They’re delicious and sensual and painful and emotional and erotic and loving and so hot they risk spontaneous combustion.

The drama is caused not only by Curtis’ own fears, but also by the interference of family who should know better. Logan is 27 but his parents still look on him as if he’s a scared and shy teen. Their helicopter parenting leaves him frustrated and doubting his own determination to be his real self.

And I could have slapped Troy’s mother, even though I also absolutely understood and sympathized with her feelings, for her guilt tripping as she sees Curtis making tentative steps towards a new life with Logan in it permanently.

I could wax lyrical about this one for hours more, I never wanted it to end. Utterly gorgeous cover too, the lumbersexual look isn’t usually my thing but Curtis just floated my boat.
