No safe word can protect the heart

Infamous erotica author and accomplished dominatrix Nora Sutherlin is doing something utterly out of character: hiding. While her longtime lover, Søren—whose fetishes, if exposed, would be his ruin—is under scrutiny pending a major promotion, Nora’s lying low and away from temptation in the lap of luxury.

Her host, the wealthy and uninhibited Griffin Fiske, is thrilled to have Nora stay at his country estate, especially once he meets her traveling companion. Young, inexperienced and angelically beautiful, Michael has become Nora’s protégé, and this summer with Griffin is going to be his training, where the hazing never ends.

But while her flesh is willing, Nora’s mind is wandering. To thoughts of Søren, her master, under investigation by a journalist with an ax to grind. And to another man from Nora’s past, whose hold on her is less bruising, but whose secrets are no less painful. It’s a summer that will prove the old adage: love hurts.

Review

We get more of Griffin in this one. OH how I love me some Griffin! We also get more of Michael. I had wondered if we were going to get more Michael after meeting him in The Siren.

In this one Nora has to go and lay low because there is something going on and Soren doesn’t want his secrets to come out so he sends her and Michael to go and stay with Griffin.

He sends Michael along with her because he wants her to take care of him as well as train him while they are away. Soren thinks that it is time for him to learn.

There is a lot going on with poor Michael and he isn’t sure how exactly to handle it all but Nora helps him to understand that he is not alone in how he feels. She helps him to understand that he is not the only person who feels the way he does or needs what he needs.

Griffin is one of the funniest guys and hot (well in my mind he sure is!)

There is a lot going on with Soren, things are being put into question about him. SO, with that, we get to learn more about him; AND let me just say WOW, was NOT expecting what we learn about him!! That was just…well I don’t know what I was expecting but not that.

Then that ending!! That is another thing I wasn’t expecting…boy am I happy that I waited to read because I can jump right into the next one. I would hate to have had to wait to find out what happens.
Oh cliffhangers how I have a love/hate relationship with you!!!!

FYI…there is blood play in this one…may not be for everyone. It isn’t a lot but it is still there. For me though. It makes the story that much better! It just fits in well to who the person is who does it.

“Fetishes…they’re the pet you feed or the beat that eats you.”

“…going on about the abomination of sodomy. Nora had patted the woman on the back and said, “If it’s an abomination, it’s because you’re doing it wrong. Bear down hard, then relax. It’ll fit better.”

you just clenched your ass tighter than the second pair of Spanx on a drag queen.”

“You know St. Andrew?”…”According to legend he requested that he die on an X-shaped cross instead of T-shaped as he did not feel worthy to die like his savior. And he was bound not nailed.”

“Cops?”…”Oh yeah. The bigger and tougher they pretend to be, the more likely they are to want a woman to call them a slut and put her foot on the back of their neck.”

“Flirting’s for people who don’t mean it…I seduce.”

“Ink doesn’t get into your skin. It gets into your soul. Changes you.”

“We value the most what we must sacrifice to have.”

10 synopsis

Notorious Nora Sutherlin is famous for her delicious works of erotica, each one more popular with readers than the last. But her latest manuscript is different—more serious, more personal—and she’s sure it’ll be her breakout book…if it ever sees the light of day.

Zachary Easton holds Nora’s fate in his well-manicured hands. The demanding British editor agrees to handle the book on one condition: he wants complete control. Nora must rewrite the entire novel to his exacting standards—in six weeks—or it’s no deal.

Nora’s grueling writing sessions with Zach are drainingand shockingly arousing. And a dangerous former lover has her wondering which is more torturous—staying away from him…or returning to his bed?

Nora thought she knew everything about being pushed to your limits. But in a world where passion is pain, nothing is ever that simple.

Review

I had heard a mix of reviews on this series and had been unsure if I would like it. I had put it off but when I saw that Netgalley had a few of the books and I could read them I thought why not. I was looking for something that had some BDSM in them. I started this one and have to say I love Nora! She is awesome! I also loved that she is a writer! There is a lot to love about this book. I enjoyed reading her stories, we get to see some of the stuff she is writing for her book. Pretty hot that is for sure!

There is one of the sweetest guys that we get to meet, her assistant. I instantly fell in love with him. I also love the banter between them.

This book has some hot sex, some of the best banter, she also does a great job explaining the relationship between a Dom/sub and S&M.

I wish I would have started this series earlier. I am also kind of glad that I waited because I am able to read right through.

I absolutely love Nora that is for sure. She is by far one of my favorite girls!

This book does deal with sadomasochism so for people who have an issue with that type of pain and the pain along the sorts of what Nora talks about can be pretty intense, and is not for everyone.

So if you rather enjoy a Dom/sub relationship that only deals with flogging and spanking along with being tied up, this may not be something that you will enjoy. If you don’t have an issue with reading about a Sadist/Masocist relationship than this might be a series that you would enjoy. I know I have and I am sure it will only get more intense. I am looking forward to see where this series goes.

“- sacrifice can only get you so far. William and Caroline are just too different to make it work. And although two people can love each other deeply, sometimes love alone doesn’t cut it. We can only sacrifice so much of ourselves in a relationship before there’s nothing left to love or be loved.”

“Catholicism was the perfect faith for someone into S&M.”

“Jesus died for the sins of the world. Everyone who ever lived killed Jesus.” She paused and smiled sadly. “I killed Him.”

“Because of all gods, Jesus alone understands. He understands the purpose of pain and shame and humiliation…for salvation, of course. For love.”

“In S&M, if you’re about to give someone a beating, you start off soft to desensitize the skin. A little pain at first can prevent a lot of pain later.”

“Polite doesn’t help me. How do I know what I’m doing right if you aren’t telling me what I’m doing wrong?”

“Men simply had no idea how profound an effect their masculine scent could have on a woman.”

“The same wind that blows us off course can turn and carry us home.”

Review – The Dom’s Dungeon by Cherise Sinclair

GOODREADS DESCRIPTION:

Foster child. Teenage whore. Now a veterinarian, MacKensie’s turned her life around, but the scars remain. She saves her affection for the animals who never judge or scorn her, but it’s time to get out, move on from her past in Iowa. So, she arranges a vacation exchange to job hunt in Seattle.

Although the house is lovely, one room is locked. Her years in foster care have given her two ‘gifts’: a neurosis about locked doors and the ability to open them. After she gets into the room, she’s appalled…and intrigued. Chains and manacles, whips and paddles, odd benches with straps…

When Alex returns home days early and finds MacKensie draped over the spanking bench in his locked dungeon, he’s furious. But her wariness arouses his protective nature and curiosity, so he strikes a deal to keep her close–she’ll act as his submissive in exchange for a place to stay and help finding a job.

He’d planned to use the veterinarian to deter an ex-girlfriend, not replace her, but with MacKensie’s compelling mixture of strength and vulnerability, the little sub slides right into his well-defended heart.

MY THOUGHTS:

I finally got around to reading this one and as a stand alone book I did enjoy this one but I do LOVE when she does a series. This one was different because for the girl she associated spanking with someone who loves you because growing up in foster care only the kids who were loved got spanked. I didn’t understand that at first but Alex was absolutely amazing with her. He is just a great Dom!

“I wouldn’t do this if i didn’t care, but you mean everything to me, and if this is what you need, then this is what you’ll get. But we’re damned well going to work on changing this association between caring and spanking.”

Well lets face it Cherise Sinclair does an amazing job when she writes about her Dom’s they are the most perfect in every way, leaves us all wondering if there is such a man out there.. haha which is why I LOVE to read her books!

There is just such a connection between the two of them that is always so fun to read about. To think that someone can instantly feel something for another person and know that more will come from it and it will only get better as you go.

He does a great job introducing Mac into a bunch of new things. It is always so much fun reading Mrs. Sinclair’s books!


Review – His Gift by Gillian Colbert

20120823-223202.jpg

GOODREADS DESCRIPTION:

Owin has a surprise for Maurina unlike anything she could have anticipated. Ever her Master, he’s determined to fulfill all of her fantasies, even the ones she doesn’t admit to … like having two men at once.

Now, on their first anniversary, he has a surprise for her that will take her to heights of ecstasy she’s never experienced before, but is she ready to accept his special gift?

MY THOUGHTS:

This was a very short but steamy read! After I was done I wanted more about Owin and Maurina! I wanted a prequel…. SOMETHING haha I mean who wouldnt want it?? I was left with so many questions.

Here is the intro paragraph:

‘She shivered in the dry coolness of the hotel room. Goosebumps erupted on her skin as she settled herself more comfortably on the bed. She was naked except for a black, silk blindfold that she’d knotted around her eyes as instructed.’
