10 synopsis

Milan’s notorious playboy, Prince Tittoni, seems to have everything—Lamborghinis, exotic women, palaces throughout Europe and business success. Ramping up his fabric company to go global with a new apparel brand, he ruthlessly stops supplying fabrics to the American client who inspired the collection. But once they meet, what’s he willing to give to get her in his bed?

Upper East Side designer Lex Easton has already endured her fair share of hard knocks. She’ll be damned if she’ll let an Italian stud muffin knock her down. So what if she named her favorite vibrator after him? With Fashion Week approaching, she’ll do whatever it takes to secure the fabrics she needs to make her clothing line an international success—even sleep with her rival.

Lex’s Louboutins are dug in deep to win this war. All’s fair in love and fashion!

Review

So I have seen this all over the place and for the most part it has good review ratings so I thought why not right?! I have to say I would agree with the majority. I enjoyed the story.

This was a funny, sweet, HOT and pretty quick read. She was what I picture as the typical New Yorker. I loved the smart mouth she had on her.

And some of those scenes oh my goodness they were pretty damn hot and X rated for sure.

I do understand that it is fiction but I really am not a big fan of people falling in love so quickly. To me a week just isn’t long enough to really know that. Or at least I don’t believe it is. There was that and … Okay don’t hate me for this one but I have a hard time reading about a man who is “uncut”. It won’t make me stop reading a book it doesn’t completely kill it for me but it does kind of give me the heebie geebies. Nothing against men who are uncircumcised but it just isn’t my first choice. That in part may be partly because I have never been with one (yes I know TMI).

Overall it was very sweet and cute. It had moments that were funny as well. It was entertaining reading about these to struggling for the upper hand. I think for me out of the 4 best friends (Taddy, Lex, Blake, Vive) Vive is the one I am the most excited to read about once her book is out!

Review ~ Beyond Control by Kit Rocha

Title: Beyond Control

Author: Kit Rocha

Series: Beyond #2

add-to-goodreads

10 synopsis

She refuses to be owned.

Alexa Parrino escaped a life of servitude and survived danger on the streets to become one of the most trusted, influential people in Sector Four, where the O’Kanes rule with a hedonistic but iron fist. Lex has been at the top for years, and there’s almost nothing she wouldn’t do for the gangand for its leader. Lie, steal, kill—but she bows to no one, not even Dallas O’Kane.

He’ll settle for nothing less.

Dallas fought long and hard to carve a slice of order out of the chaos of the sectors. Dangers both large and small threaten his people, but it’s nothing he can’t handle. His liquor business is flourishing, and new opportunities fuel his ambition. Lex could help him expand his empire, something he wants almost as much as he wants her. And no one says no to the king of Sector Four.

Falling into bed is easy, but their sexual games are anything but casual. Attraction quickly turns to obsession, and their careful dance of heady dominance and sweet submission uncovers a need so deep, so strong, it could crush them both.

Review

This was the very first dystopian series I have ever read, it gave me hope that I might like this type of read and the first book was a hit and oh my goodness was it good. This one was a bit of a miss for me. I think partially it might be because there was a lot of “shop talk” about sectors and what some have and some don’t. I know that it was important to the story line don’t get me wrong, but I caught myself kind of skimming over most of that.

I wanted more about the relationships that were building and what was going on underneath the surface with Dallas. But then we get a few twists and turns that I wasn’t seeing I did like it overall not as much as the first but enough to read the third to see where it goes. There is some BDSM mixed in but it is pretty light there is no sir and master stuff going on but there are floggers and cuffs and all that fun stuff. There is a lot of sex also. I enjoy their writing so far and I look forward to more. I didn’t really care much for Dallas to begin with but we get to see a different side of him in this story. We get to see a softer side from time to time as well as with Lex. I am sure that because I didn’t care for Dallas much at the start that might be part of the reason I was ehh about this one. 

We also get some Noel and Jas as well. I love when we get to see some of the characters from the other books. Always makes reading a series fun because we get to see how they are doing and don’t feel like they are just forgotten.

Author: Rie Warren

Series: Don’t Tell #1

10 synopsis

It is the year 2070. Generations ago, the world was annihilated by catastrophic environmental events. The survivors were driven to live in big city centers ruled by the Company. To rebuild the world’s population, the oppressive Company had one rule: all homosexuals must be exterminated.

Commander Caspar Cannon has a stellar military reputation—and a life-threatening secret. When a revolution rips through the territories, Cannon is ordered to escort Company executive Nathaniel Rice to a secure location. For months, the commander has harbored illicit desire for Rice, knowing he cannot act on his attraction. Privileged, polished, and groomed to one day take over the Company, Rice is drawn to the rugged, military man. Yet Rice has his own mysterious agenda, and he knows their love can be as dangerous as the wasteland they must traverse.

Now leaving the besieged city behind, the two men embark on a journey that becomes a minefield of sabotage, betrayal—and forbidden passion. But when danger catches up to them, can Cannon trust the secretive man who holds his heart—and his fate?

Review

Okay I didn’t read the synopsis before I started this book, that was my mistake… but it wasn’t all bad. So for starters I will say that I am not a big fan of dystopian reads. I know some absolutely love them. This is an M/M dystopian hot read. I did enjoy the story of the two men more than anything.

For me it felt a little drawn out and I know that is partial to the talk. Like I said I am usually not a big fan. I did enjoy the few twists that came and one I was yelling out this can’t be happening right now. I will throw my phone I swear it don’t tempt me. So I guess I did get sucked in at a few parts. 🙂

But it was mostly due to the relationship that was growing. That is what had my interest from the get go. I will probably not be likely to read the next one just because for me personally it was not my thing. I am very picky on dystopian reads.

I really hope that others love it though, those who love a good erotic dystopian with man / man lovin!!

Review ~ Together in Cyn by Jennifer Kacey

*click on cover pic for amazon link*

Title: Together in Cyn

Author: Jennifer Kacey

Series: Members Only #1

add-to-goodreads

10 synopsis

She knows it’s wrong. Cyn shouldn’t have feelings for fraternal twins Jared and Chris, her best friends. She shouldn’t want them to tie her up or strap her down, to take her one at a time—or together. The only way to control her taboo desires is to write them down and lock them away in her diary. Guys like Jared and Chris could never be interested in someone like her, or in the kind of sex she craves.

But Jared and Chris have read her diary, and sweet little Cyn is in for the shock of her life. The brothers not only own a members-only BDSM club, they want her. Need her. And now, with their unlimited funds and an entire establishment devoted to fulfilling her darkest pleasures, they’re going to claim Cyn for their own.

Inside Scoop: If you have a kink, this book probably has it too. If you like your ménage romances extra hot with a side of male-male romance, spanking, voyeurism and girl-on-girl action, come and get it.

 

Review

 

I am never disappointed when reading a book that is put out by Ellora’s Cave! And when I find a Taboo one I am always quick to jump on it! 😉 I have to say that it was pretty damn hot! I enjoyed it very much! Okay so this book is the first in the series and I plan on reading them all! I do like a book that gets right into it. It doesn’t take much time for you to get started on the steamy-ness. I was sold the instant we get the image of the guys in leathers! I couldn’t put it down I needed to know more I had to have more of them. One of the things that I do love about this one is it isn’t too long either so you get to get your fill and it doesn’t take days to get through. Although there is nothing wrong with having a long story full of steamy-ness like this!

And the name of their club!? BRILLIANT!!

I have become a pretty big fan of menage. So this was a good one! BUT it was a little strange with brothers, I honestly wasn’t sure how I was going to like it but I really enjoyed it. It wasn’t weird at all. For those who may not know there is a HUGE difference between M/F/M and M/M/F and this is the first!  I did get sucked into the hot sex, I mean who wouldn’t? It was hot! But with that there was something that had me at a loss. I was so surprised and just didn’t know what to think. I usually can figure out or at least have an idea of how some stuff will work out but when there are some twist and turns that are put in I do have to say that I enjoy them. I loved that there was a deeper story. Something that was just so sad, heart wrenching and something that in the end can pull people closer or push them apart.  I am looking forward to reading all in this series!

Review

I enjoyed it from the get go! I think in reality it would be awesome to have some rich guy come and invite me to play this little game with them haha.

Okay let me start off by saying I am getting really tired of EVERY  BDSM book being compared to fifty shades! Fifty shades is NOT BDSM, yes there is kink but a Dom he was not! SO please can everyone STOP holding fifty shades up to this high standard that it really shouldn’t be held to. This book was good on its own merit! I did not once think of fifty when reading it, it wasn’t until I was getting ready to mark it down as read on goodreads did I see the fifty references. There really isn’t any ‘Master’ or ‘Sir’ stuff going on. He just likes to be in control. The only way one can make comparisons would be the millionaire man with a naive girl. So if that is what you are looking for this has that!

There is so much to this story.

He is very secretive about who he is. There is a dark edginess to him that drew me in immediately but at the same time he is very confident in who he is as a man. That in itself is attractive.  I have to say that some of the things he had her do were beyond hot! I couldn’t put this one down I wanted to know what was next. I wanted to know what he was going to have her do next. She is new to all this and has come to realize that she has been missing out on and wants more.

You get to go on this fun little journey where she gets a taste of domination, and finds out that she enjoys it more than she probably should.

“Every girl dreams she’ll be the one who catches his eye, who catches his heart.

Do any of them dream of being the one who’s caught?”

I have always been a huge fan of BDSM books because of the power exchange the dominant having it, the submissive giving up control. It always has been my favorite genre of books.  For the most part it probably is because of moments like this…

“…when I’m with him, all the attention is on me. It’s all about my needs, my desires. I’m the one who gets off. He said I’m going to have to earn the privilege of his cock.”

Who wouldn’t want to read this??

I am looking forward to the next one! And the ending…yeah there were a few twists that were thrown in there for good measure and well had me completely at a loss. I wasn’t sure exactly what happened or why, but will find out hopefully in the next book.

The title of the book holds true. If you are expecting this to go fast and get right to the sex between the two of them then you will not enjoy this one. It takes time for him to get her where he wants her oh the build up and anticipation!

To end it all…This is a girl who does things with a stranger, a man she doesn’t even know his name. So if something like that would drive you nuts than this might not be for you. That and there IS a cliffhanger at the end of this one. I know some do not enjoy them but I do from time to time.
