WOW! I just held my breath for 6 hours!

I finished American Queen and the psychedelic trip I experience will remain for some time. I can now breathe again. Oh oh oh, the side effects are staggering. You will find yourself experiencing anxiety, increase heart rate, palpitations and insomnia.  I was up past 4am reading.  But the high was worth the sleepless night.

Sierra Simon’s writing is my illustrious drug of choice. And I am totally addicted.   I remember the cover reveal and thought, what a gorgeous cover! I remember reading the synopsis and thought, oh my this is going to be good. Instead it was even better than imagined. I believe there wasn’t anything that could topple Priest. I was so wrong. The last time I was left with a mood-altering drug induced state was after Priest. Naturally, I replace one hangover with a new hangover from the same dealer.

The more I read, the more my fixation was fueled. The secrets and lies are unveiled piece by piece like a puzzle. Each unveiling was hard to decode. As a reader, you are caught between a dangerous love triangle or maybe a forbidden ménage. You don’t really know.

The sex scenes are downright combustible, provocative, lewd and depraved. And that’s a good thing! But it’s more than just the one-hand read factor, it’s the dominance that President Maxen Ashley Colchester commands in the bedroom. As the most powerful man in the world, that rings very true in the Lincoln Bedroom too.

“..he’s Ash and I’m Greer, and when we’re alone, I belong on my knees”

American Queen is a story about an unforgettable teenage girl name Greer Galloway who catches the eye of the future President of the United States. Because of the age difference, she remains a fixture in his heart even when he falls in love with someone else. This is a love story churn into a twisted triangle. Or is it? In the meantime, I am going to marinate on the mind-blowing cliffhanger!!!!

“I kept thinking about what I wanted to give you today for our wedding day, and honestly, Greer, there isn’t really anything I couldn’t give you. Jewelry or exotic vacations or rare editions of the books you love, anything I could have dreamed of, I could get for you—but they were just things. I didn’t want to get you a thing for a curio cabinet or a jewelry box. I wanted to give you something that you could carry with you through our new life together. Something that would make you a promise.”

The best man’s hand brushes up against my stocking-covered ankle and I gasp.
“What is it, princess?” Ash’s low voice comes over the phone line.
“Embry…I mean, Ash, I—” I can’t find the words just then, because Embry’s hand slides up my calf and everything stops. My thoughts, my feelings, my guilt—my world shrinks to Ash’s voice on the phone and the fingers moving past my knee and Embry’s face, so controlled. But lust and anger and determination are fissuring across that control, and I can see his wide pupils and the pulse pounding in his neck and the trembling of his lips.
What is happening? I think distantly to myself. What am I letting happen…and all while I’m on the phone with my soon-to-be husband?

Two seductive strangers.
One scandalous night.
A trinity of temptation.

It was only supposed to be a single encounter. A night stripped of sexual inhibitions.

We were never supposed to become romantically involved.

But they were alluring and irresistible.

They were also the enemy.

Their company wants to take the one thing that means anything to me.

Now, I’m navigating a dicey path. Loving two men who can destroy me in a multitude of ways. They can shatter my heart, wreck my dreams, but worst of all, demolish the only place I’ve ever called home.

Indigo Rel banner

Title: Indigo Nights

Author: Louise Bay

Genre: Contemporary/ Erotic Romance

Release Date: February 9, 2016



The only thing better than cake is cake with a side of orgasms.

Dylan James has no expectations when it comes to relationships. He uses women for sex and they use him for his money and power. It’s quid pro quo and he’s good with that. It works.

Beth Harrison has been burned. She’s tired of the lies and the game playing that men bring and has buried herself in her passion—baking which keeps her out of the reach of heartbreak. As she begins her career as a TV baker, a new world opens up to her.

Dylan and Beth both know that casual sex is all about giving what you need to get what you want.

Except that sometimes you give more than you need to and get everything you ever wanted.

“I understood the dynamic between men and women. I got to sleep with hot women, and in exchange they got to fuck a rich guy in the hope that they’d become beneficiaries of my cash. I might be handsome, but I knew from bitter experience that if a richer guy came along, I’d be left in the taillights of the women I slept with. It just happened that now, there weren’t many richer men, which gave me a certain satisfaction. I’d made peace with the transactional nature of relationships between men and women and had no expectations. At some point in my past I’d thought that love was possible. Not anymore. It was all about giving to get.”

5 Fabulous Friggin Fantastic KINKS!!! Louise Bay, you have a new fangirl!

I’m looking for Mr. 8A in the middle of the day with a flashlight!  Where is he? If I have to purchase an airline ticket from Chicago to London, I will find this man!

I made the mistake of starting this book at 9pm with the intent to read the first (5) chapters.  Big Mistake!  This book was definitely worth the hangover the next day from lack of sleep. This is the must read book of the year yet!

Simply, I freaking loved it! I knew from the first chapter I was going to be immersed into this story.  I love the struggle Beth has learned to live with.  It brings a depth to the story that makes Dylan appreciates Beth and wants her more than casual sex.  A man doesn’t fly to London as a surprise so he can travel with you back to Chicago for a casual hook-up. (okay, you can swoon now)

It’s magical, dirty, real and erotic with a side of orgasms. Who needs chocolate? This is truly a great substitute as well.  You will not be able to control the increase heart rate, the sense of euphoria, the tingling sensation and the ultimate wave of pleasure.  Hear what I am NOT saying.

For personal reasons, I am very partial to lovers meeting at the airport, on a flight, or vacationing on a tropical island.   This story hits all my Must Read Buttons:

  1. Meet cute on a flight in first class (economy is boring right!)
  2. Rich, sexy and cocky alpha male, who knows it and can have any woman he likes without any effort, traveling for business (Hot Billionaire Alert)
  3. Kick-ass heroine who refuses to fall for his game…easily (wink wink)

The writing is effortless. The words flow like a seamless transition from each characters POV. Beth Harrison meets Dylan James on a flight from Chicago to London.  She is checking out Mr. 8A as he settles into his seat.  Even when he catches her ogling him, she doesn’t shy away that she likes what she sees.  Then the fate of cupid produces a storm that cancels their flight.

The perfect opportunity for a “One Night Stand” The sex scenes were phenomenal.  Mr. 8A was looking for his next “lay” and what he found was the “f*ck of his life”.   I apologize for being so crude with my words, but really…. sometimes “one-night stand” does not do the deed justice.

I love the kick-ass attitude Beth portrays.  She is on the verge of becoming the next big thing in the Cooking world.  Even though she has been out of the dating game for years, she knows how to appreciate a beautiful man with a hot piece of “sticky buns” and enjoy the perks of the hot dirty sex.

And Dylan James?  I am still looking for you!!

PRIEST Book Review | Sierra Simone (@theSierrasimone) – Author

 Warning: “There is sex, more sex and definitely some blasphemy”



Wow, just WOW!  OMG! If only they knew what I was reading on my Kindle. I knew from the blurb, PRIEST was going to be a good read.  It takes “forbidden” “holy crap” and “O, God’ to another level.  It doesn’t hurt that the book comes with a warning!  Oh yeah, sign me up for the fall down the rabbit’s hole.Priest by Sierra Simone

We are introduced to Father Bell’s POV and his confession in the beginning.   In his confession Father Bell states “I broke my vow of celibacy on the altar of my own church” That has to be a metaphor right?  Ok, we will come back to that…..maybe?!

He meets Poppy Danforth when she walks into confessional.  Immediately, her voice makes him feel like a man.  After meeting her, Father Bell takes us through a journey of curiosity, self-control, guilt, desire, regret, penitence, shame, love and acceptance. The story, which may be considered as taboo, is very real and true to the hero’s struggle.

The PRIEST, clearly broke a lot of commandments. In his struggle with Poppy, Tyler becomes so enamored he feels he would kill (another metaphor?) if it means he could have her.  Instead of offering herself to him freely, she prefers Tyler to ‘steal’ her kiss and her submission. He displays moments of jealousy regarding Poppy’s life before him. His secret relationship results in lies to his friends and parishioners.  As he falls further, he admits to himself he’s made an idol of Poppy.  As for being neighborly, Poppy lives on the same block as the church which makes coveting the neighbor’s house somewhat ironic.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s an erotic romance and it kicks ass everywhere. The sex is hot and forbidden. It’s the forbidden that pulls you in and makes you keep turning the pages. It’s the forbidden that keeps you wondering just how far? And it delivers.  The author, Sierra Simone, promised and warned that there would be “sex and more sex” and did not shy away.   However, the sex is not just fluff for the purpose of <insert sex here> the writing is honest, knowledgeable and respectable to the process of struggle and acceptance. Very well written!!

In the end, the question remains:  Do you make decisions based on what you want for someone else or what is needed for you. Sometimes there are things you must do or see before you get to where you need to be.  It’s a definite MUST READ AND JOURNEY!


There are many rules a priest can’t break. A priest cannot marry. A priest cannot abandon his flock. A priest cannot forsake his God.

I’ve always been good at following rules.

Until she came. Then I learned new rules.

My name is Tyler Anselm Bell. I’m twenty-nine years old. Six months ago, I broke my vow of celibacy on the altar of my own church, and God help me, I would do it again.

I am a priest and this is my confession.

***Priest is a full-length standalone with an HEA. For Mature Audiences Only***

OWNED Book Review | M. Never (@mneverauthor) – Author


Owned (Decadence after Dark #1)
Author: M. Never
Print length: 237 pages
Publication: September 29, 2014

@Own Book 1


***Content Warning***
Owned is a dark erotic romance. Please pay close attention to the use of the words dark, erotic, and romance. It has intense sexual situations, a Master/slave relationship, mild abuse, and some violence. Reader discretion is advised.

“I like you collared, baby. I like you naked, I like you mine.”

Ellie Stevens has lusted over Kayne Roberts since he first walked into the import/export company she works for a little over a year ago. As Expo’s most important client, Ellie has always kept a safe distance from the man with the majestic blue eyes – until temptation finally gets the better of her. Impulsively, Ellie invites Kayne to one of Expo’s infamous company parties her flamboyant boss is notorious for throwing. Unbeknownst to Ellie, the god in the Armani suit isn’t just the suave entrepreneur he portrays himself to be. Underneath the professional exterior is a man with a secret life, dark desires, and nefarious contacts.

In a hidden corner of a trendy New York City lounge, the spark kindling between the two of them ignites. Unable to resist the sinful attraction, Ellie agrees to leave with Kayne, believing she is finally bedding the man of her dreams. Little does she know when she walks out the door, she’s about to be Owned.

my review…

Everything That Glitters Is Not Gold

What the F*@k did I just read? It’s Halloween Eve and I’m trying to write my last review for Dark Romance Month.  And I end it with Owned by M. Never.   This book should have started my month.

Ellie Stevens wants Kayne Roberts. To lure him, she invites him to one of her boss’s parties.  Kayne agrees to attend and when he decides to forget it and leave, Ellie walks into the club “fashionable late” dress to impress for Kayne’s eyes only. Reluctantly, he cannot deny he wants her and Ellie agrees to leave with him.  Little does she know she just step into the Master’s Den of domination and submission.

If you ever wonder what the dark side of D/s, master/slave relationship was like…look no further. Ellie wakes up the next morning in a cage with a hangover from being drugged. She is isolated, starved and sleep deprived for days  while Kayne waits for her to give in and submit.

Finally, she submits and release. She is collared and chained to her bed 24/7.  Her brief moments of reprieve come in the form of Jett, a friend of Kayne and member of the Mansion. He is responsible for her after care and upkeep in preparation of Kayne’s nightly visits for obedience training.

“I LIKE YOU COLLARED, BABY. I like you naked. I like you mine”

Even though Kayne’s hates himself  when punishing Ellie, he also enjoys it.   He shows no sympathy for pain he invokes and no tolerance when she blatantly disobeys his commands. There are many moments when I don’t like Kayne. Whether it’s punishment or pleasure, his obsession of Ellie provides no bouts of leniency or small allowances. He shows no mercy.

“Holy shit, I’m now tagged, collared and owned by him”

By this time during my reviews, I would normally mention the panty melting and scorching hot sex.   And it’s very much in vivid details.  But there is no need. I cannot express how many OMGs I can spill forth about the sex.  It’s practically a how-to guide in using sex toys.

By the end of the story, Ellie is furious, angry and does not want anything to do with Kayne Roberts or whatever the hell his name is. You would think the anger comes from being starved, beaten and treated like an animal.  No, it’s not!

My review:  5 KINK

DOUBLE TIME Book Review | Olivia Cunning (@oliviacunning) – Author

Mile High KINK Book Review

Double Time (Sinners on Tour #5)

Author: Olivia Cunning

Publication Date:  November 6, 2012

Double Time

Amazon US


This was a re-read for me.  I wanted to read this story along with my BFF who is reading it for the first time. It’s great to relive the events in the eyes of a newbie.  Welcome to my  Sinners On Tour world.  

It’s one of those stories whereas you can’t wait until she comes to your favorite part (and there are many) and your cellphone starts blowing up.  Trey Mills, is one of my favorite Sinners aside from “Master” Sinclair.   As my BFF said to me, all the books you read can’t be 5 Kinks, Lola.  She is so right.  Therefore I will create another category, 5+ Kinks one that will be truly deserving of stories like Double Time.

To join the Exodus End World Tour, I wanted to re visit the introduction to the band from Double Time.  Trey Mills, twin brother to Dare Mills of Exodus End, has a heart of gold, a wicked tongue and a no holds barred sex drive.  It pained me he was trying so hard to be someone he was not.  Instead of having what/who he truly wanted he decided it was best to turn his back on his true self.  However, it took a kiss-ass heroine, Reagan, to show him his true match.   I laughed with Trey, I cried with Trey, my heart broke into pieces along with Trey. And I said “hell yeah” with Trey when he discovered he could have the best of both worlds.

I am trying so hard to avoid spoilers and to not repeat the blurb.  So I leave this with you:

Trey Mills, guitarist for Sinners, is one sexy, hot and deviant rock god. And that’s all good.  Double Time is not for the faint of heart.  Step away if you are not down and dirty with M/F, M/M and M/F/M sex scenes.  This story will literally melt your Kindle, panties and burn your fingertips.

Sit back, suck a cherry pop and enjoy Mr. Trey Mills and the Sinners.  IT’S A TOUR YOU DO NOT WANT TO MISS!!!!!
