BOUND HEARTS = Ménage Romance + Scorching Sex

Another Bound Hearts novel hits the right spot.  Intense Pleasure is a brand new MFM romance from author Lora Leigh intense-pleasureand is guaranteed to heat your kindle.  I discovered this series by accident.  My introduction to the Bound Hearts series started with Only Pleasure.  What I love about the books in the series is the titles and the book covers do not scream SPOILER ALERT: HOT MFM Ménage Romance.

With the latest installment, Samantha is a southern girl with deep Georgia roots.  While the dialogue is great, I tend to stay away from stories with “southern slang” However, if you have no problems with “fixin” for example, the dialogue will not impact your reading pleasure.

Intense Pleasure packs a whole lotta hot and steamy sex to titillate the body parts.  If you like your romance with a hint of suspense and a little bit, ok… a lot, of ménage romance centered on the woman, Intense Pleasure is the book for you.

Lora Leigh has created a delicious tale of secrets and forbidden yearning. Falcon and Raeg are brothers and heroes to inspire sinful dreams while Samantha is a kick ass ex CIA operative who is not afraid to walk away from the love of a lifetime – if needed.  I enjoyed every scrumptious chapter.

“She didn’t need protectors. She wasn’t Cinderella and had no damn… desire to be.  She would have shot the fucking stepmother and buried the bitch in the backyard if it had been her.”  

During their moments of fierce chemistry and explosive bedroom antics, a deadly assassin lurks in the background.  When Samantha becomes the target, their attraction and protection kicks up with a lot of action.  Falcon and Raeg attempt to sacrifice themselves for the sake of the relationship while Samantha demands they stay and fight for it.

If you haven’t read this series yet, what are you waiting for!  Each book in the series has romance, suspense, a twist and hot MFM sex.

4 KINK Review

Hang on tight.  Denial will confuse you with many secrets. After waking up in a Roman hospital, Ella is being pursued by the mafia.  When the mysterious woman turns up with amnesia, her reappearance sends shockwaves all the way to the people and/or organization who wants her dead. But why?

 As a reader you can’t help but turn page after page to seek what she remembers.  It will absorb you.  Everything is carefully plotted with items we think are the pieces to the puzzle, until the one thing we didn’t see coming.   Who is trying to hunt down Ella and kill her?  Could it be the man sleeping beside her?  Ella is no shrinking violet either.  She knows her way around a gun which leads to more questions rather than answers.

Kayden Wilkens zooms along like a game of hunter and prey.   Desperate for answers, her sexy and mysterious rescuer Kayden Wilkens begins a search for the truth into a web of deceit and conspiracies more frightening than the lies concealing the truth.   Together Kayden and Ella are trying to unravel the mystery while a detective is trying to link Kayden to the crime.

In the blink of an eye, amidst Italy as the backdrop, the search to regain Ella’s memory ignites sparks between Kayden and Ella.  Kayden wants to protect her and dominate her in the bedroom.  However, with flashbacks being tied to a bed creating nightmares, Kayden wants to keep her safe from his dominating ways.   This story will have you gasping at the explosive cliffhanger.  It’s an intelligent thriller with intrigue and suspicion lurking around each new piece of evidence.

red-about-the-book

He definitely wasn’t supposed to get that email…

Subject: My Boss.

Have I already told you that I hate my boss today?

Sexy as hell or not, this pompous, arrogant, ASSHOLE asked me to pick up his dry cleaning the second I walked through the door. Then he told me that I needed to take his Jaguar to a car wash that was ten miles outside of the city, but only after I needed to stand in a never-ending line to buy some type of limited, hundred-dollar watch.

I honestly can’t wait to see the look on his face two months from now when I tell him that I’m quitting his company and that he can kiss my ass. KISS. MY. ASS.

All those former fantasies about him kissing me with his “mouth of perfection” or bending me over my desk and filling me with his cock are long over. OVER.

Your bestie,
Mya

PS–Please tell me your day is going better than mine…

Subject: Re: My Boss.

No, you haven’t already told me that you hate your boss today, but seeing as though you’ve sent me this email directly, I know now…

Yes, I did ask you to pick up my dry cleaning the second you arrived to work to day. (Where is it?) And I did tell you to take my Jaguar to the car wash and pick up my thousand-dollar watch. (Thank you for taking five hours to do something that could be accomplished in two.)

You don’t have to wait two months from now to see the look on my face when you tell me you’re quitting. I’m standing outside your office at this very moment. ( Open the door. )

No comment on your “fantasies,” although I highly doubt they’re “long over.”

Your boss,
Michael

PS—Yes. My day is definitely going far better than yours…

red-read-an-excerpt

 

I give a very theatrical, hopefully convincing yawn. “Wow, it’s late and I’m beat. Time for bed.” I click off the television as Ace stands and helps me to my feet.He doesn’t let go of my hand. We’re close enough that I can feel heat radiating from his body. I breathe in the scent of him, pine and snow. He’s only wearing a thin black tee shirt, and I’m pretty sure I can pick out the definition of every part of his body.

He still hasn’t let go of my hand. Lightly, he runs his thumb across my palm.

“I don’t know if you got the full tour of the house. Best thing about it, in my opinion, is the spa hot tub. It’s just outside.”

“Oh?” I should take my hand away, but my body won’t do what I tell it. “It’s a little cold out there, isn’t it?”

“Once you’re in, you won’t even notice. I’m planning on a midnight soak.” He pulls me a little closer, mischief in his expression. “Why don’t you join me?”

“I.” There’s nothing I can say that’ll make sense. Ace grins. It’s a wicked smile, that’s the only way to describe it. “I don’t think I should,” I manage. “There’s a perfectly functional tub in my bathroom, anyway. So. I’ll just take a raincheck. On the hot tub.”

“You don’t want to try it?” He lets go of my hand and touches my face. “Or is it that you’re afraid of me?” He trails his fingertips across my cheek. “Which is it? Door one or two? One of them leads to a fabulous destination vacation.” His voice drops to a lower register. A sexy one. “You should loosen up, party planner. It’s just hot water. And I promise you’ll still be your tough and capable self afterward.”

My breath hitches in my throat. I’m almost ready to say something stupid, like ‘I don’t have a bathing suit’ or ‘which way to the pitch black snowy outdoors?’ when common sense crashes through the window to truss me up, sling me over its shoulder, and race away.

“It’s going to be a long day tomorrow. I should get some sleep. Good night.” I break away from him as not-awkwardly as possible and head upstairs. I have to stop halfway up, though, and lean against the railing and close my eyes. My heart is still racing, and all the heat in my body has pooled, not so unwelcomely, between my legs.

I told the truth—I do have to grab a shower and go to bed. But the thought of Ace out there in the hot tub, stripped down, his muscles relaxing under the beat of the jets…

I’ll probably need to make it a cold shower.

Disarmed is a delightful and stimulating erotic romance with a ménage story line leaving you aroused and entertained. It will capture your interest from the beginning with the witty banter between the girlfriends at their secretive sex club.

Although I did not want the storyline to detour to a more traditional romance, it is a good and fast read.  The story weaves between the lives of Jade and her two Doms:  Miles and Carson.

It’s a must read for those who like their kink with multiple partners, dirty talking alpha males and public displays of eliciting sexual pleasures. Granted the avid ménage reader will enjoy the storyline, the author will evoke an emotional pull with great compassion dealing with family issues. Loaded with tons of spicy sex, fans will not be able to put the book down.

 

Blurb:

Jade McGuire lives a double life. To the outside world, she is a well-put together art connoisseur with a good head on her shoulders. But in the privacy of a downtown DC apartment, she lives out every fantasy she has ever had.

Twice over.

Strong and independent during the day, Jade kneels at the feet of her two Doms once the sun sets.

After a chance meeting at Ruby’s Lounge, Miles Jennings and Carson Dunn find themselves playing a very dangerous, albeit sexually fulfilling, game. And all bets are off when the goal is to win the girl.

Young couple makes love to the wall

Today is Gameday!  Are you ready to play? 

I was not prepared for this match.  Score one for author Skye Warren.  The Pawn will move and capture your excitements at its core. What an intellectual dark romance!!  It’s complete with sophisticated characters who jump from the pages and strikes you in the heart. 

Prepare yourself for a world of secrets, lies and deceit. The Pawn is told from the female’s POV, Avery James.  She had the perfect life until the unthinkable happen.  Now she must risk everything to help save her family – her father.   The story’s strength lies in Gabriel’s disturbing battle between lust and vengeance toward Avery and her father.  I desperately hope we get Gabriel’s POV in the future.

The title of the series, ENDGAME is derived from the concept of a chess game as you may now know.  It’s a tale of fiction that oozes with brilliance, emotion and intrigue.  The concept and the execution of the drama is perfectly timed like the game itself. 

Chess players know the pieces of the game:  KING, Queen, Bishop, Knight, Rook and Pawn.   The gameboard represents the battlefield where the pieces fight.  The king is the most importance piece in the game.  You always protect the King. Therefore, the goal of the game is to checkmate the opponent’s King, meaning the king is put into check and cannot get out of the check. 

Huh? What?! Yeah that’s what I think.  I am not a chess player.  I wish I was a chess player.   I am in awe of the concept.  This latest release from author Skye Warren has me adding a chess game to my Christmas wish list.  Like me, you will crave to understand the game of chess itself to take this epic journey with Avery and Gabriel. 

The Endgame Series will be one of the most well-crafted highly anticipated releases for 2017.   It excites me just thinking about it.   We will crave more of the character’s actions and how they intersect metaphorical with the game pieces.   Plus, the ending will reveal an unexpected plot twist.

IMHO, The Pawn illustrates  how to never underestimate what a woman  can do.

My virginity.

A forbidden auction…

Gabriel appears at every turn. He seems to take pleasure in watching me fall. Other times he’s the only kindness in a brutal underworld.

Three Sweet Nothings by Nikki Sloane is LIVE!

“[A]dventurous readers will discover that Sloane is one of the best in the genre.”- The Washington Post

4 KINK Review

Source: Advance Reader Copy kindly gifted by author/publisher/PR 

THREE SWEET NOTHINGS is a sexy and red-hot read and the second chance romance story line enhances the Blindfold Series.  From the beginning, fans of the series will welcome the clothes coming off immediately.  Told from the dual POV’s of Kyle and Ruby, the plot is fueled with trust issues.   

Kyle finds himself in the last place he ever wanted to be and managed to escape –  working for his father.  Circumstances in New York provided enough stimulus to bring him back home to Chicago.  While working as the attorney on a high-profile divorce case, it brings him back to his college sweetheart – Ruby on the opposing counsel’s side.    Years ago, Ruby and Kyle broke up under the worse of circumstances.  And it’s going to take some serious negotiations for each of them to believe they can have a life together.

As attorneys, they handle the situation in the only way they believe can work: as a sexual contract.  Fans will see shades of grey in the story line and it’s not a bad thing.  We get to witness a DOM in training and that’s what threw me more into the spicy story line.  One word to describe the training:  SCORCHER.    

We are treated with all the delicious bites of  dirty talk and carnal desires to keep the toes-curling and the breathing shallow.  Plus the book surprises with its metaphorical approach to baking macaroons – a very tasteful treat.   It’s a must-read for those who enjoy their KINK with couples.

Arm Yourself. Tons of Stimulation Inside.

Womanizer was a blast to read.  Tahoe Roth’s baby sister interning for his best friend Callan Carmichael at Carma ~ what could possibly go wrong?  A hot rolling in the sheets sexy romp.  Like Tahoe before Gina, Callan is a shameless philander who treats women like playthings to enjoy and discard.  Naturally, Tahoe has warned his sister against his best friends including Callan.

I was thrilled to see another member of the Saint’s gang with their own story.  There was no need to read the synopsis.  However, I did know two things:

1.  It was a standalone in the Manwhore Series  

2.  The dreamy cover alone  makes it worthy of an automatic “buy with 1-click”

Katy Evans could have devoted several more chapters on Callan and Livvy and I would have been eager and thrilled to read more.  So, cue the bagpipes and turn your song books to Amazing Grace.  Womanizer is where we mourn the demise of the “Last Man Standing.”  A sizzling tryst with Hot Smoking Guy reveals a wallop of instant attraction worthy of a black eye and a split lip.

Livvy has her life planned with a timeline for career, love and family.  Callan has his life plan with no attachments and no relationships.  Livvy meet Hot Smoking Guy on the terrace of the Carma building and manages to seduce him.  Of course, without knowing Livvy is Tahoe’s sister, he immediately develops an insatiable need to possess her.  She develops a smoking habit just to be in his presence.  Soon the mystery is solved about each other. Now they are compelled to rendezvous in secret from family, friends and colleagues.

Sleeping with the boss proved to be very productive.  Not only did Olivia Roth find the man of her dreams, she found a career working by Callan’s side as his equal.    Which goes to prove sleeping your way to the top does have its reward.  Did I say that out loud? Oh well, in the world of romance its highly acceptable and encourage by readers like me (wink).

“The only bad thing is that if anyone finds out I’m doing the sexy with you,

they’re all going to think I got ahead because I slept with you,”

I told him one night when we were at my place.

“The important thing is that you’re going to know that they’re right.”

He touched a finger to the tip of my nose. 

Well done Ms. Evans.   Womanizer packs as much sexiness as Manwhore with Saint.  Like Manwhore, I loved every minute of reading this sexy romance.  I enjoyed Livvy as a driven woman in business and in her personal life.  She manages to seduce one of Chicago’s billionaire bachelors with a simple cigarette.   Plus, Callan finds someone he wants enough to chase down to voluntarily trap himself in marriage and family life.

 

Womanizer by Katy Evans 5 KINK Review

Synopsis:

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Evans comes a brand new contemporary romance. WOMANIZER is a full length standalone, and no other books in the series need to be read.

You’ve seen the headlines: Womanizing billionaire player! Watch out! Stay away!

We were just two strangers. Facing a forbidden attraction, a chemical connection. Neither of us expected or wanted it to amount to more.

But I had never been drawn to a guy the way I was drawn to this one: my brother’s best friend, and CEO of the company where I interned.

Even knowing I should stay away, I proved to be too human, after all.

The chemistry was amazing.

The laughs were incredible.

I opened up to him in more ways than I’d opened up to anyone before.

But sex was as far as I’d go.

Just sex because he was too irresistible.

Just sex because I wouldn’t be falling for him.

Just sex because I’d leave in three months, and I’d like for my brother not to kill me, and for nobody to find out he was my wicked little secret.

He wasn’t the One.

He was just a womanizer.

But for a time, he would be mine.
