5 Stars for Becoming His Master (Neighborly Affection #4) by M.Q. Barber – #MM #Erotic #BDSM @MQBarber

1.3

Title: Becoming His Master (Neighborly Affection #4)
Author Name: M.Q. Barber
Publication Date: March 17, 2015 –

Synopsis

From rescue to romance…

Teach a wounded submissive the value of his service. The task ought to be an easy one for an experienced dominant like Henry Webb.

But novice Jay Kress challenges his teacher like no other. Still bearing the bruises of an encounter outside the bounds of safe consensual play, Jay is desperate to submit to the man who saved him—and shamed by his desires.

Henry recognizes the dangers of a relationship built on hero worship. He’ll teach Jay how to stay safe, that’s all. He won’t take advantage of the younger man’s trust. He won’t share his fantasies about his dark-haired, athletic student. He’ll never claim this submissive for his own…

FiveStars

This book has descriptions of an abusive relationship with BDSM. If this bothers you, do not read.
Jay and Cal have a somewhat dangerous partnership. I wanted to yell and scream when I read how awful Cal was.
Henry was a calm, strong, loving Dom who wanted nothing more than to help Jay find his way in a world that can sometimes harbor posers.
Emma and Victor are great friends throughout the story. I would very much like to have read their story. They sound like they have quite the relationship.
This was a story of finding your true self – harnessing that power and trusting yourself. Both main characters, Henry and Jay have to find it in themselves to trust their true natures.
I love how devious Emma was throughout the story. She made me laugh and I found myself wanting to know what she and Jay would talk about. I really liked how protective she was over all Subs in the club – it didn’t matter than she was a sub herself – she was like a mama bear who would rip anyone apart if they mistreated them.
While I did like that Henry was patient and methodical in how he taught Jay to negotiate and essentially fend for himself, the book was slow at some times.
Overall, this book was very well written. I think it could have gone (or I wish) a little faster in pace, but in the end, it was very enjoyable.

AuthorBio

I am a former Midwestern gal who well knows the joy of flopping down in a field for an afternoon and composing stories about the shapes in the clouds. As it turns out, adulthood doesn’t have to be so different from childhood.

Sharing those stories is a new thing for me. I hope readers will love the characters as much as I do.

EvertheSameLG

Title: Ever The Same
Author Name: B.A. Tortuga
Publication Date & Length: February 27, 2015 – 256 pgs

Synopsis

Audie Barrack is in it up to his elbows with a sick calf when his son’s school calls. Seems Grainger has gotten into yet another fight. When he walks into the principal’s office, he’s shocked to find his son has been fighting with a little girl named Randi.

A little girl with one blind dad and one dad who recently passed away.

Goddammit.

Dixon has lost his sight, his career, and his husband. Thank God for his brothers, Momma and Daddy, and his little girl, or he would simply give up. The last thing he needs is for Randi to start trouble at school, especially trouble that puts him in contact with another dad who might expect him to be a functional human being.

Dixon is struggling to live as a blind man, Audie is terrified someone might see he has a closet to come out of, and everyone from the school to both men’s families is worried for the men and their children. Unless they get themselves together and commit to change, neither of them stands a chance.

Excerpt

“You ready for this, Dixon?”

“I am. I… I don’t get out much. It’s exciting.”

“A little scary?” They headed out, the truck moving smoothly. He never worried about Audie’s driving, not like he did Dalton’s or his mom’s.

“Little bit, sure. I hate the idea of pouring something down my front.”

“I bet. I like your shirt.” Audie sounded as if he was flirting. For real.

“Randi picked it out.”

“She’s a good kid. She’ll call if she needs you, right? Grace and I both want to make sure she knows that’s okay.”

“She has her little phone in her backpack. It only calls me.”

“Good deal.” Audie hummed with the radio for a moment, and not for the first time Dixon cursed not being able to see the man.

“What do you look like?”

4 Stars for Fighting Fangs (Bound and Bonded Series Book 4) by Lisa Oliver #BDSM #MM #Romance @wisecrone333

SMFFFinal

Title: Fighting Fants (Bound and Bonded Series Book 4)
Author Name: Lisa Oliver
Publication Date & Length: February 9, 2015 – 118pgs

Synopsis

Book Four Bound and Bonded Series
(Can be read as standalone)

Ace is on a mission. On the run from his old pack, the enforcer is determined that cat shifter Teric must die. In his head it’s the only way he can regain his place in the Washington pack and the Bound and Bonded club. In an effort to meet his needs for Domination in the human world, Ace visits Whips, a predominantly human BDSM club and gets the shock of his life.

Devin is a five hundred year old vampire who has been searching for his one and only for the longest time. Working as a house sub at Whips was fine until one Master over steps his boundaries and Devin is left with time on his hands. Deciding on a whim to track down the delicious wolf shifter he had smelled at the club, Devin soon tracks down Ace…and then promptly wishes he hadn’t. Ace is a wolfist and refuses to accept Devin as his mate.

Misunderstandings are just one hurdle these two need to overcome, if they are ever to have their HEA. The enforcers from the Washington Pack are still looking for Ace, and when they find him it might prove the end for both Devin and Ace.

Warnings; this is a gay erotic romance about a wolf shifter and a vampire. The book includes graphic sex scenes between men, BDSM elements and coarse language.

FourStars

This was a great story – I wish it had been a little longer.  Even without having read the previous books, I did not feel that I was missing anything.
Ace is an unfortunate product of his upbringing. Because of that, he had to grow up pretty fast and then, had to learn the hard way that perceptions can be wrong.
Devin is a vampire who uses submission to curb his blood thirst. He has been searching for a long time for his mate.
The story shows how changing the perception is not always easy, but the rewards can be worth it.
Despite the storm that Ace must weather, Devin is there to help him every step of the way. Their pairing is both what they both need and a great teacher to them both as well.
I really enjoyed the community and despite everyone’s misconceptions, when people are willing to change their ideas, it can change how all pieces of life fit together.
There are just a few minor issues with the editing, and once an editor goes back through the story, fixing those missed spaces or misspelled words, then I think it will be complete.

Excerpt

“This is not a scene. Not this time. This is us, together. Mate. Amatus. No rules. No restrictions. Just two men who will be together for a lifetime.”

Devin’s eyes flashed a brilliant red, the sight almost shocking Ace with its intensity and then it was gone just as quickly.

“I want that,” Devin said softly, as his hands came up from where they had been resting on the bed and gripped Ace’s biceps. “I want that a lot,” his voice finishing on a growl that set Ace’s wolf on edge as though not sure whether to challenge or submit. But that growl left Ace in no doubt that the man underneath him was as much a predator as he was.

This was a wonderful, quick read full of heat and heart. I was drawn in right away by the first-person narrator. Even in such a short story, there was plenty of detail to give a sense of who these people are and how they relate to each other, and the little bits of backstory sprinkled in round things out nicely.

The sex was hot, very sensual and romantic without being over-the-top. Again, I liked the little details. They made it fun and sexy. The writing style is just lovely, and I can’t wait to read more by this author.

5 stars

FourandHalfStars

This was a fantastic little short story. It’s hot and sexy and really fun to read. I rarely find books about boi’s or those who are a bit androgynous, and this one definitely doesn’t disappoint.

The two characters have definite chemistry, and they come together with a bang. There’s enough history to give them both rounded personalities, at least as rounded as one can expect for something that takes me (a slow reader) about thirty minutes to finish.
The premise behind the plot is short, quick, absolutely adorable and to the point. It’s smut with a fantastic background. Not quite PWP (if you’re familar with fanfic terminology, if not, Plot? What Plot?), but enough to get anyone’s motor going.

Author Interview with Sara Daniels @SSaraDaniel

Spanks-Lovespanks-2015-wnames-Amazon

  • Can you describe in detail what your writing environment is like?

I also do a lot of writing on a big comfy chair looking out my front window. When the weather is nice, I love to write outside—on a not-so-comfy chair by my front door or in a lawn chair at a nearby forest preserve. If I can’t be outside, a seat in front of a window is a MUST. I do a lot of staring outside while my mind is churning!

  • Is there one of your characters that you relate to (from any of your works)? Why?

I can definitely relate to Sadie from The Briefcase. She wants to be a good, conscientious employee and do what’s expected of her, while she also needs to take care of her family. She worries that she’ll fail the expectations set for her and doesn’t want to disappoint anyone. Yep, that was me in my teens and twenties!

  • If you couldn’t be an author, what would you do instead?

Well, I got my degree in accounting, so I’d probably fall back on that, but it definitely wouldn’t fill the void. In fact, working such an analytical job would have my creative side desperate to burst out. If I couldn’t write, maybe I’d try something like website design. I could channel my creativity into the layout and design, and I could continue working from home on my own which I love!

  • Is there anything that you learned during the writing process that you wish you had known before hand?

The Briefcase was my first F/F story, and the most difficult change I found from writing M/F was the pronoun usage. I could no longer use he or she in place of names and be assured that the reader would instantly know which character I was referring to.

  • Is there anything that you wish you could change about your book now that it is out?

I may expand it to a longer novella in the future. I think the story has a lot of potential to become more fully developed with more conflict and Rhea’s point of view. But I’m really happy with this anthology version right now.

  • How do you come up with new ideas for your story?

I have always been drawn to relationships and happy endings. Many times a story inspiration comes to me when I hear a situation or read an article with an unsatisfying conclusion, and I want to give those people a better ending. I might not be able to in real life, but I certainly can in fiction.

  • What’s next for you as a writer?

I’m wrapping up my One Night with the Bridal Party series of M/F one-night stand stories. One Night with the Bride, One Night with the Bridesmaid, and One Night with the Groom are currently available. One Night with the Best Man, One Night with Her Husband, and One Night with His Wife will be release in April, May, and June respectively.

  • Where do you live? Do you think this influences how or what you write?

I’m from a small town in Illinois, so I don’t think it’s a surprise that a lot of my books end up being set in small towns in Illinois. Several more of my books are set in Chicago because that’s the urban area I live near, so it definitely influences my writing. I find it easier to write a setting that I have personal knowledge of, even if I create a fictional setting from that base of personal knowledge.

  • What is your favorite genre outside of the one you write in? Why?

Outside of romance, I’ve been enjoying middle grade fantasy series books—Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, and Fablehaven. This is definitely due to my daughter’s influence. Although she’s old enough to read these books on her own, I started reading them aloud to her at bedtime when she was first struggling to read, and we both love the routine too much to stop.

  • Do you have any vices? Shoes, coffee, shopping…etc?

Coffee, red wine, pasta, chocolate. I could come up with more, but that’s enough to incriminate me. J

 

Synopsis Sadie is on a mission to deliver an important briefcase for her boss, Rhea, whom she’s lusted after forever. But an emergency changes Sadie’s plans, and suddenly she is trying to keep a horde of well-meaning friends from prying the briefcase out of her hands. When the shocking contents spill out at the worst possible moment, much more than Sadie’s job is at stake.

Excerpt

“You’re the only person I trust to deliver this without peeking inside,” Rhea said.

Flushing both with desire and embarrassment—had Rhea noticed her gawking?—Sadie snapped her gaze back to the woman’s face. “Of course not. I would never—”

“Good. Because if you do, there will be consequences.” Her regal blue eyes held Sadie captive.

Consequences. The word sent a thrill shivering through her veins. She’d never push Rhea to make good on the threat. But what if those consequence were something other than a reprimand in her personnel file, something physical and, um, personal?

Of course they wouldn’t be. Rhea was a consummate professional and would never consider such a thing, even though the increasing sternness of her tone turned Sadie on more with every word.

Staring at Rhea’s black stilettos, she tried not to give herself away. “I’ll take the briefcase to Mr. Thacker right now.”

“Good girl.” The other woman placed her index finger under Sadie’s chin, raising it until Sadie met her gaze. “When you’re done, take the rest of the day off.”

She stumbled back a step, her chin tingling from the simple touch. “Excuse me?” She’d often been ordered to stay late but never to take off early.

Rhea raised a perfectly arched eyebrow. “You heard me. Today is your birthday, is it not?”

Shocked she remembered the detail, Sadie nodded. But she had no party plans. In fact, she would prefer to return to the office and watch the firm’s star lawyer crank out paperwork. How pathetic was that?

“Consider this your present.” Rhea plunked the briefcase into Sadie’s arms.

This is a great fast read. I love all the twist and turns this book takes! Some you can see coming where others you never expect.
The effects everyone have on each other are perfect the way they all equal out each other and come together.

AuthorBio

I’ve been writing since I was young. I remember writing a series of stories when I was 7 or 8 about a girl and a ghost called “Jackie & Spookie.” Ever since it was always a hobby just for me. It wasn’t until I was about 16 that I found out there was more to it then I ever thought. Ten years later I was ready to share with the world. Here comes my first novel “Coming Out”, about a world where the roles are flipped and a girl must come out to her family as straight in a world where everyone is gay. They ship her off to a cleansing center believing it will gay her back up, but boy are they wrong. She goes on an adventure to find herself and finds friends she never thought she’d have along the way.

My next novel was one I had been working on since I was 16, “Which Way Is Witch?” Completely different than “Coming Out”, this takes on a paranormal twist throwing the main character in a world she never expected. Her and her best friend find out things are never as they seem and family and friendship are more important than they even realize.

My writing style may not be perfect, but I try to bring laughter and smiles to every one of my readers. Whether it be paranormal, romance, or a coming of age, I hope you will come on this journey with me. Writing may be my second love (Music will always be my first), but I always put a piece of me in everything I produce. And just so there is no gasps of shock, there most likely will always be a LGBQ message or characters in my stories.
