Risk Aware

Risk Aware is part of the Saugatuck Summer world, but is a totally standalone novel. This is a very readable romance, which considering the subject matter, is not overly heavy on the angst. A contemporary m/m romance with some very well thought out and imaginative BDSM elements, the title refers to ...

Drive

When her ex-husband Frank died mid-divorce, he left Suzanne Mayhew with a lot of questions (was he cheating?) and some classic cars he never let her drive. Forty-something Suzanne is about fifteen years older than hot cop Neil Callahan, who wants to take her Mustang for a drive - and yeah, that can ...

Pain Slut

Pain Slut is the second novel, in the Subs Club series by J.A. Rock. I did read the first, The Subs Club, and although it improves the reading experience in some ways, Pain Slut can be read as a stand-alone. Miles is a handsome, serious man and a masochist, in that he is part of the BDSM alternat ...

Bind Me Before You Go

It’s a rare thing for me to say I don’t think a book was even worth $1.99. I mean, that’s a cheap book, not much of an investment. But Bind Me Before You Go is just that awful. It was only 132 pages and I couldn’t even make myself finish the book. Save that money and go buy a Snickers bar. Y ...

The Siren

There are some books I recommend because they charm me and I absolutely adored every moment of reading them. However, "endearing" is not an apt word to describe The Siren because while some portions of the story were very moving, other parts will likely make readers extremely uncomfortable or even a ...

Arcane Shot (Something About Witches)

I knew when I received this book for review that I was in for a treat. What I didn't know is that this latest series revisits the world of Justin Herne, the hero from If Wishes Were Horses, a long time resident of my keeper shelf. Once again Ms. Hill takes the reader on a delicious exploration of BD ...

Patience

When Lisa Valdez published Passion several years ago, the buzz was tremendous. Everyone seemed to be talking about and reading the book and looking forward to the sequel – Patience. But a year went by, and then another, then another until readers were fast losing their patience. Well, the book is ...

Owning Rachel

Ménage books are becoming increasingly popular in e-book land, and thus increasingly prominent. In my (admittedly far from complete) experience, M/M/F groupings are becoming the new "it" couple in the sub-genre. However, the stories do come with their own special brand of problems. First, th ...

Shadowheart

Sometimes it's hard to predict whether any single element in a story is going to be a deal-breaker or a deal-maker; you just have to read the book to find out. The intense, almost violent, nature of the sexual relationship between the hero and heroine almost ruined this one for me, but Kinsale manag ...
