To Catch a Threeve_coverin

Title: To Catch a Threeve
Author Name: Alexis Duran
Publication Date & Length: October 20, 2014 – 136 pgs

Synopsis

Axel Blackwood catches a thief and is astounded to see that he closely resembles Liam Alloway, the love he lost seven years ago in an attack by the evil woodland folk known as threeves. Axel suspects he’s fallen prey to dark magic, but can’t help becoming infatuated with his prisoner. He’s overwhelmed with the hope that he can at last bring his lost lover home, despite everything that warns him it’s all a diabolical trick. 

Bryn Darrow, the half-threeve, half human orphan sent to trick Axel and rob him of much more than a simple gem finds himself equally as fascinated with his handsome human captor and the lure of someplace to call home, but he knows deep down that the constable is in love with a dangerous illusion. When he’s commanded by the threeves to murder Axel and steal a witch’s powerful grimoire, he’s forced to decide between the only family he’s ever known and the one person who might rescue him from a life of isolation and pain.

 Will Axel and Bryn be forced into a deadly confrontation before they can discover the truth?

Review

FourStars

Axel Blackwood has a name you’d expect and a heroic heart to match. In To Catch a Threeve, he’s mourning his long-lost love Liam, killed by threeves seven years ago. Deep in the forest, he and his companion are set upon by a lone threeve who looks just like Liam!
Duran is clever, though, he discounts the possibility of a true resurrection quickly, so the reader doesn’t spend the whole book scoffing. Instead it’s two coming of age tales, two men trying to decide who they want to be regardless of who they’re expected to be.
The setting, some medieval magical place, is of no real import. And the book is a little <I>nicer</I> than I thought it would be. Aside from a few fantasy battles and a torture scene, of course. There’s nothing too dark, nothing too heavy or atmospheric.
The sex is hot and plentiful. The twists and turns make sense and the end is supremely satisfying. This is a great one-shot book for a bathtub or a rainy night. I was happy to read it.

Excerpt

“What are you, Bryn Darrow?” Axel asked.

“Wish I knew,” Bryn answered, shaking his head and chuckling. “You can go on pretending I’m this Liam person if you want.”

“If you ever try to act like Liam again, I’ll let Drummond lop your head off. He’s itching to, you know.”

“You started it,” Bryn snapped. “And now you’re getting friendly again.”

Axel jerked his hands away from Bryn’s back as if he’d been burned. “I’m looking for your clan sign. Why’d you remove it?”

“Looking with your fingers instead of your eyes? Don’t get me wrong. I don’t mind it.” Bryn looked over his shoulder with that annoying, delectable smile. Only the memory of being spelled senseless stopped Axel from resuming his exploration of Bryn’s skin, kissing his neck, pushing him down into the grass—

5 Stars for Guns N’ Boys: Book 1, Part 2 by K.A. Merikan – #MM Romance #Erotic #MafiaRead @KA_Merikan

18745190

Title: Guns N’ Boys Book One, Part Two
Author Name: K.A. Merikan
Publication Date & Length: October 8th, 2014 – 278pgs

Synopsis

Guns n’ Boys needs to be read in order. This is the second part of book one.
— Love is sour like a Sicilian lemon. —
The Family is always right.
The Family doesn’t forget.
The Family pays for blood in blood.

Domenico Acerbi grew up in the shade of Sicilian lemon trees ready to give his life for the Family. Ready to follow orders and exceed expectations. A proud man of honor.
When Seth, the younger son of the Don is kidnapped, it’s Domenico who is sent to get him back. The man he finds though, is not the boy he knew all those years ago. Lazy, annoying, spoiled, and as hot as a Sicilian summer.

Seth Villani wants nothing to do with the mafia. Unfortunately, he doesn’t get a say when the Family pulls him right back into its fold after his mother’s death. Thrown into a den of serpents otherwise known as the Villani Family, Seth has to find a way to navigate in the maze of lies. But when Domenico Acerbi, the most vicious snake of them all, sinks his fangs into Seth, the venom changes into an aphrodisiac that courses through Seth’s veins.

Domenico knows his life is about to change when he gets the order to train Seth up to the role of future Don. Seth isn’t made for it. He isn’t even made. But a man Domenico knows he would never have to fear might just be someone he’s always needed.

If Seth is doomed to follow in his father’s footsteps, he might as well enjoy himself–with the most intoxicating man he’s ever met. Maybe he can even fool himself into believing that Domenico isn’t a handsome sociopath who kills for a living.

POSSIBLE SPOILERS:

Themes: Enemies to lovers, mafia, homophobia, assassin, organized crime

Genre: Dark, twisted erotic romance / crime thriller

Erotic content: Explicit gay sex, coercion

Length: ~90,000 words

WARNING: Adult content. If you are easily offended, this book is not for you.
‘Guns n’ Boys’ is a gritty story of extreme violence, offensive language, abuse, and morally ambiguous protagonists. Behind the morbid facade, there is a splash of inappropriate dark humor, and a love story that will crawl under your skin.

FourandHalfStars

Whew.. Well, as much as I found wrong with the first part.. it was all fixed in the second part. Sure Seth is still a bit of a wuss considering his situation, but finally we get to see him man up for the man he loves.

Dom once again knocked my socks off. He was so sexy, supportive, conflicted at times (for all the right reasons).. Just fantastic.  He’s so strong, yet emotional (once we get to know him). I loved him so much!

I know it brought tears to my eyes at times because you go through so much with these men as a couple only to have one obstacle after another thrown their way.

The one part I didn’t care for was that some things were REALLY glossed over… like the fact that Seth had his first woman lover and while I understand WHY it wasn’t talked about much, I think there should’ve been a bit more detail/feelings about that whole situation.

I SOOOO need the next installment.. Like STAT.. yesterday.. NOW!!! It ends on such a mega cliffhanger I’m chewing my nails and sweating at the same time.. hurry up and write/edit/publish!

Review

ThreeandHalfStars

This is actually a hard review to write for me… I’m on the fence as to what to rate the book. Here is why…
Seth (our main character) is supposed to be the next Don. I had such a hard time with this because the kid is such a puss that I don’t understand why his father chose him.. But I suppose we’ll find out as the story progresses.
Domenico (our other primary character) was hot. I loved him and his bad ass attitude. In a way I felt sorry for him for being stuck with Seth. Their relationship only worked for me because Seth was SO a bottom (even though he swore up and down that he was a top).
Then there is the Mafia side of things. The book fit in the category for me as Dom is prepping Seth for his ascension. I really hope we get some clarity about Seth’s fathers choices in part 2 because that was one of the hardest parts for me to understand (and get through).
Lastly, the length. Good gosh did it take me forever to get through this book. While I absolutely loved the writing style and the scenes were good too, it just felt like there was so much time spent in each scene that the story stood still and I had to keep putting it down because I’d get tired of seeming like we weren’t really getting anywhere.
All in all, not a bad read and I’ll read the follow up so I can find out what happens to these two. I really did feel like the synopsis over shot quite a bit as I didn’t think the story was all that gritty or violent or even really enemies to lovers. Sure, Seth wasn’t always besties with Domenico, but I wouldn’t say they were even close to enemies.

AuthorInterview

1) What motivated you to start writing?

Hiya and thanks for having me! How fun is this!? J

*clears throat* Okay. So. What motivated me to start writing… hmm. Well, I’ve always enjoyed writing, even as a kid. Would get lots of comments on my easy flow flavor. But I guess that never really resonated me one way or another because we have a lot of writers in the family tree. And then as a teen, my attentions were elsewhere as many I’d imagine are. As I neared graduation, I’d thought my future was in art, so I went on to get a degree in Electronic Graphic Design (computer graphics) but never really went anywhere with it. It just didn’t drive my passion like I’d hoped it would. It wasn’t until about ten years later, when by happenstance, I fell into a group with some super creative fan writers that I realized my calling. After writing for fun online for a good five years, (every single day, mind you), then moving to write my own idea-based stories—a few of my favorites being some seriously passion-drenched m/m story lines. *swoony sigh* 😉 At any rate, it finally dawned on me that this was my passion, my calling, my soul’s one true love. That I needed to do it to inwardly thrive. And screw it, I thought my ideas were pretty darn cool, so why not try to share them with a larger audience now that self-publishing was an option?  So I bit the bullet and gave it a go, and haven’t looked back since.  It hasn’t been easy, mind you, but it’s been liberatingly fabulous all the same. 😉

 

2) Who or what is your biggest inspiration for writing?

Hmm. That’s a toughie. It’d definitely be one of my favorite authors, most likely all of them, really. But I think if I had to pick one, it’d have to go to JR Ward. And dang, for so many reasons. I truly believe it was her books, her style of writing, that made me realize writers really didn’t need to conform as much as I’d thought. She writes “edgy and real” in a way that really connected with me and to what intrinsically drives my own creativity. And her metaphorical mind, I ate that thang up like pudding. She made me want to show the world my own brand of “off-brand.” 😉 My own sort of polished “unpolishedness.” If that makes any sense.  But even after she’d won me over, when she braved the road less traveled to do a full novel in her primarily m/f series about two men, I was ‘done.’ Done in the most glorious sense of the word. She’d lifted her chin, despite the potential backlash of disapproval, and given those two incredible characters the book and HEA they deserved. And the book was mother effing fantastic. One of my favorites of her whole fantabulous series.  So yeah, I’d say she’s inspired me on all fronts. To write, to write like I truly want to write, and to take a chance in the world of m/m erotica like I’ve longed to do for as long as I can remember. 😉

 

3) What is your writing environment? (Where do you write, what do you do to prepare right before you start writing)

My writing environment is my god awful , messy-ass office. But it has doors I can close to keep the noise out and access to wireless internet. 😉 Which is a double edged sword. It gives me way too easy of access to Facebook (gah) but it also provides me with the musical inspiration that feeds my writer’s soul. Youtube is my font for inspiration on so many levels.  When I’m writing a particular scene and need the music that’s literally the backdrop for it, I just pull that puppy up and get on with it.

Editing, however, is done anywhere I have a few minutes free time. Living room couch, playroom while daughter gets her groove on to Just Dance Wii, and especially in bed until my eyelids start to droop. LOL

As for preparation before writing, geez, I’m pretty boring. A hardy dose of caffeine to get my brain waves surging, a bit of social connect time to get my inner mojo happy (I’m a hopeless extrovert, through and through) and some time to re-read what I’ve written the day before. *shrugs with a sheepish laugh* Wish I had something more eccentrically fun to report, but alas, I do not. My characters are a lot more interesting than I am. LOL

 

4) What is the hardest part of a book for you? Any particular scene(s)?

I enjoy writing pretty much all the parts that make up a book. The two that I love the very most, however, are dialogue (especially the bantering kind, and of course, the hot, sexy pillow talk) and love scenes. I swear I was born to be an erotica writer. It just comes so dang naturally to me. But it wasn’t until somewhat recently that I realized just how much. I mean, I always knew that my writing partners in the past got a little overwhelmed with my “stuff” from time to time *laughs* and because of that I’ve always felt compelled to tone down the images in my mind, reign them in, chill them out, despite how bad it went against my “natural grain.” And then reviews for some of my previously published works started coming in, saying that though the books were classified as romance they really fit better into erotica. I’d blinked at them, surprised, because those were pieces I’d specifically toned down! So maybe, in all honestly, the tamping down of the scenes I see and what I want to put on page is one of the hardest parts for me.  Which just goes to show how much I’m enjoying my journey with Tad and Scott in my new m/m series. It’s a no-hands-barred liberation I’ve never allowed myself before, and its wide range of positive feedback is utterly the icing on the cake.

All that being said, if editing can be considered part of the writing process, that is definitely the toughest part of the endeavor. It’s long and tedious and mind-numbing. And while the finished product is definitely rewarding, it’s one hell of a endeavor to get to the finish line. 😛

 

5) If you only could write in one genre, what would it be? And if you couldn’t write in that genre what genre would you pick next?

My true love will always be romance. Hands down (Primarily paranormal, but I do love all forms). I’m a sucker for hot love and all the elements that weave it into its sexy little braid of bliss.
But if I couldn’t write romance, I’d probably want to write high fantasy. Intense, heroic adventure gets my heart pumping like nothing else.

 

6) If you could spend a day with one author, who would it be and why?

*laughs* I’m gonna have to say refer back to question 2 on this one. If nothing else than to banter our asses off together.  Have a war of the snarky wits or some shit. Heh… And then I’d make Ms. Ward share all the private little unshared moments she’s seen in her head with my favorite characters of hers. We’d start off with her decadent bi-sexual BDSM mental case, Vishous, of course. *licks chops*

7) What do you like to see in book reviews? What makes a review better than other ones to you?

As far as reviews go, the most important thing to me is that people critique my stuff respectfully. Considerately. I don’t expect everyone to like my writing, in fact, I figure quite a lot won’t. But I am a human being like everyone else, with feelings and vulnerabilities. And when putting myself out there for others to see the utmost intimacies of my heart and soul, I totally appreciate when they word their opinions thoughtfully, keeping in mind that I worked very hard for a very long time on the works I put out for others to enjoy. It’s a lot easier to tear a writer down than I think people realize. I’ve seen some reviews of other authors’ books that just broke my heart for them.
Now with that being said, the best reviews out there in my opinion, whether they be one star or five, are the ones that explain what they did or did not like. I absolutely take everything to heart as I forge forward with future works. In truth, as long as it’s not delivered cruelly, I CRAVE constructive criticism. In many ways I’m a perfectionist with my writing (many friends call me an OCD Nazi even lol) so any insight that I’ve missed on my own, my brain eats up and digests like candy. 😉

 

8) If you could give one tip to new writers, what would it be?

Just one? Gah! I’ve learned so many do’s and don’ts!  *taps chin* Hmm…

Probably to not give up. To forge through until the end. If you truly believe your story is worth doing to begin with, then do not stop until it’s done. It’s gonna be hard, it’s gonna be frustrating, a times like pulling teeth. But no matter what, do not quit. Don’t look back until you’ve got it all down on paper. And that means no moseying back after a few pages to edit the freshly written stuff before moving forward! No, no, no! That’ll totally derail your momentum! That was a huge lesson for me to learn, costing me disgraceful amounts of time. Just get it down and do not stop until you do. Then the rest is downhill. *smiles, sighing happily*

 

9) How do you make hard decisions with your books? Like the title of the book or some of the characters actions?

As far as titles go, many times I do reach out to friends for their opinions. If I’m lucky, a book’s title just hits me upside the head. Unfortunately that hasn’t been the case for Volume 3 of Tad’s series. *sigh* In which case, I spend a hella lotta time on Thesaurus.com. 😉
As for characters and their actions, I typically don’t even try to write a scene until the visual is already very solid in my mind’s eye. The smaller stuff just kinda flows out as I put the major stuff into action. As for how I get those visuals so clear in my mind to begin with, at night when the lights go off and in the morning when my brain first starts to rouse, I make myself contemplate on the scenes I want to write. Many many times, the events unfold for me then, at which point, they penetrate pretty deep into my memory and allow me to jot the ideas down the first chance I get. From there, they continue to resonate until its time to write the scene. And by that time, it’s so clear in my head that there are rarely times when I’m not sure what to write.

 

10) If you could only use 4 words to describe yourself, what would they be?

Goofy, anal (mind out of the gutters, peeps! I mean ocd-wise with my writing 😛 ), passionate and … *sigh* insecure.

11) Do you know when the next part of Tad & Scott’s story is coming out? Or a general idea? I’m biting at the bit here.

Hehe! So glad to hear that. Yes, I’m aiming for their third installment to be out mid-November before the heart of the holidays kick in. I’m already fully entrenched in the thang, but got a ways to go. And as you know, the meatier stuff is always in the second half. And let me tell you, this one’s gonna be a doozy. It’s been hounding me since before I even finished volume one. *shakes head* So, yeah! Wish me luck! Please!

12) What made you decide to write Tad & Scott or M/M? Do you have plans to write more M/M or will you move to another genre?

I’ve always loved writing m/m. Always love WATCHING m/m. They are just such gorgeous creatures and to have their fantabulousness doubled up into one yummy-hot love package? It’s like the best of both worlds. Anyway, I tried my hand at writing m/m when I used to write with writing partners. I loved it. It was just so … decadently delicious. So yeah, after that, I knew intrinsically that it was a genre I’d always love to write. But it had to be erotica for me. I needed to get to the nitty-gritty, raw, toe curling details and that was something I hadn’t had the balls to do up until now. It’s not easy putting one’s intimately personal fantasies out on display for all to see, and potential bash. But when Tad’s story came to me, it came to me hard (pardon the innuendo, there 😉 ) and just wouldn’t leave me alone. So much so that I was pretty much finally like, “Okay! I’ll write your insanely hot smut, Tad! But if I get slammed for this shit, it’s all your fault and you’ll be talking to the hand for the rest of my mortified life!” Haha. Aaaaaaaand that’s when Scott sauntered into my brain with that lopsided smirk of his sounding way too much like Matthew McConaughey with his smug and sexy drawl, “Well, alright alright.” *shivers*
As for future plans, I do have obligations with other co-writers that I have to complete. But if readers keep showing interest in the stuff I put out m/m wise, I’d love to keep at this genre for sure. It’s a passion I don’t see myself shaking anytime soon.

13) Do you know how many parts Tad story will be or is it still up in the air?

Right now I see 5+ installments very clearly. To get to the climax of their story, that is. Of course, I’d love to write a few more ‘in the aftermath’ installments, where people can enjoy them and what they’re like together after they’ve cleared their hurtles. That’s the best part, in my opinion. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely ADORE the sweet/spicy seduction of their story, but the thing is, these two guys are really fun individuals, so for me at least, to be able to see them let loose and just be themselves together is something I can’t wait to do. I am torn, however, because I know a lot of readers don’t like shorter length reads and might get irritated if I let their tale go on too long. I’m not in the business of pissing people off but unfortunately, with all the other obligations I have, this formula is the only doable route I can manage with the time I have at my disposal.

So we shall see. I guess in a way some parts of my journey in this particular genre IS up in the air and dependent upon the feedback I get from readers. Hell, I’d be open to doing a spin-off story with one of the other characters in this series if people show interest. I’m pretty sure most of those who’ve read up through volume two can figure out who I’m talking about. *wry grin*

 

Thank you for your time! I wish you much success as an author!!!

Thank you so much for having me! This was a lot of fun! 😀

Review

This story continues where the first one leaves off. Tad is still confused about his reaction to Scott. He can’t understand whether it was a normal reaction, or if there really is something to his attraction to Scott.

Before leaving the scene in the last section, Scott offers to pay Tad for staring in some instructional work out videos. Tad doesn’t really seem to take this suggestion seriously. But, Tad begins to wonder if it was simply the circumstances that he was reacting to, so he takes a chance and goes willingly back to see Scott.
What ends up happening had me reaching for a fan! Hotness with a capital H.
I can’t wait for the next installment. Especially to see if they continue on their same path and if the roommate of Scott will play a role in future scenes.

FiveStars
Again another AMAZING book by Kora Knight. I could not put the book down for two seconds even to get a drink! And you are definitely going to need one while reading this!
Tad decides to test whether it was a one time thing with Scott. Is the fact that he is constantly turned on and can’t get his time spent with Scott off his mind even after weeks just a fluke? Giving in he agrees to meet up with Scott to film the work out video he’d agreed to help with the first time they were together.
The pair both try to resist their hormones, but eventually cave to the inevitable. Super hot and sexy scenes between the pair while also we get answers that help clear up some of what happened in the first part while also opening up some new questions that I’m sure will be answered (and make me dying for) the next part.
I can’t wait to see where this pair is headed and hopefully for some more steamy scenes in the next part!!

TWO 4 Star Reviews for The BlueBird and The Devil by Zac Blue – @mugwumppress #FF #Bi #bisexual #Erotic #Short

The BlueBird and the Devil

Title: The Bluebird and the Devil
Author Name: Zac Blue
Publication Date & Length: October 2, 2014 – 44pgs

Synopsis

Prior to the events of Jane Eyre, Grace Poole is drawn into the mystery surrounding her employer’s marriage as she becomes sexually entangled with both the dark, enigmatic Mr. Rochester and his virgin wife.

Nineteen-year-old Grace Poole knows the unspoken rules of Victorian society.

It is the right of the nobility to act as their desires dictate, a luxury denied to those who serve them. Grace, however, refuses to be bound by her station; and from the moment she arrives at Thornfield Hall, the bisexual maid seduces footmen and maids alike even as she wonders when the elusive Mr. Rochester will return home and demand from her that which all masters invariably do.

Bertha Rochester is the dark, voluptuous and shockingly innocent mistress of Thornfield.

Under the orders of her absent husband, she is kept pampered and isolated in her third floor rooms. The servants whisper about the young mistress who, despite her married status, remains a virgin.

The temptation of a virgin mistress is one which Grace cannot resist, yet love is an indulgence she can ill afford.

She attempts to master her feelings as she initiates Bertha into her world of wanton, dark desire. Unwilling to allow love to make her weak, Grace continues her seduction of the household’s servants, with no regard for Victorian propriety, as part of her plan to free both women from the tyranny of the absent master of Thornfield. Her scheme culminates in a decadent bisexual orgy where several of Thornfield’s male servants make a cuckold of the still-absent Mr. Rochester.

The full ramifications of that night, however, will not be felt until Rochester returns to Thornfield.

AuthorInterview

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

My writing environment is my mind. Oh wait, stop raising eyebrows and rolling eyes! I work so much in my head before I write that everything is built there, including my plush Victorian library with a roaring blood red hearth, high wing backed chairs and a large writing desk, with quills and wells brimming with red ink.

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

I brood like Mr. Rochester and fuck like Grace Poole. Of course they are not ‘my’ characters as such, but in my books I control them and mutate them and pull them from Bronte’s world and put them in dark, sexy places and watch them play.

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

Wow, that is a tough one. Writing is essential to my existence. I’d be pretty much lost, wandering the moors for my lost love…oh wait, wrong Bronte.

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

Every time I write I learn something and sometimes you find dead ends in your work and have to unpick the stitches and start again, but that dead end is now signposted and I won’t travel that road again, so no journey is ever wasted.

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

I am lucky to have a brilliant editor who worked with me on the book and has a meticulous eye for detail and I knew going in how the Thornfield trilogy would progress so I can honestly say that I am 100 percent happy with The Bluebird and the Devil.

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

I read between the lines of literary classics and see the seamy side and document the sin.

  •  What’s next for you as a writer?

Part two of the Thornfield trilogy The Mistress of Thornfield will be out hopefully next month. It continues Grace’s story, with the arrival of a mysterious gypsy, the descent of Mrs. Rochester into cruel vicious madness and lots of hot sex!

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

In the countryside. It is very isolated and at night I walk and plan my writing for the next day, I think the dark desolation is perfect for the twisted tales of Thornfield.

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

I love the literary classics that inspire my writing. I have read them since I was a child and now they are like blueprints helping me to unlock my own little universes within them of hidden desires and sexual longing.

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

My whole life is one big vice.

Review

FourStars

I’m going to have to stop saying “I don’t read [X genre]” because every time I say that, I read something and get surprised by how much I enjoy it.

This is essentially pure literary erotica–there’s not really much of a plot. I love all things Jane Eyre, so I figured I’d take a chance despite not being a fan of plotless erotica. This was a fun, short read.

The best way I can think to describe it is Masterpiece Theater meets Free Internet Porn. It had all the best elements of both–the old-fashioned literary setting and the hot, delicious, way over-the-top sex. If you want an erotically charged book companion on a lazy Saturday, this is a good choice.

My only complaint was the first sex scene. It’s outright rape, and I dislike when writers get lazy and use rape as a lead-in to lust/love. There are far better ways to accomplish the same thing. In fact, this was set up in a way that it could have been completely consensual–the rape was unnecessary. For me, that makes this book drop an entire star rating.

I’m looking forward to the continuation of the series.

I give it 4 stars.

This was a quick and easy read. There isn’t much story line there, it’s basically PWP  (Plot? What Plot?) if you’re from the fanfiction world, which is exactly how this reads. Really good fanfiction.

This story is erotica, short, simple, sweet, hot and heavy. It stems from the Jane Eyre and is a bisexual piece. Two reasons why I picked it up. I was not disappointed. I would have preferred more plot, mostly because I prefer erotic romance over erotica, but this piece definitely satisfied.

There were times when I felt drawn out of the book. There’s an abundance of wetness and leaking and being wet through clothes that, honestly, just doesn’t every happen or get anywhere near where it does in this piece in real life. There’s also an obsession with boobs and their size and perkiness that isn’t seen from most POVs of women–because again, I find it unrealistic.

However, this story did draw me in. I was curious what Grace’s plans were, though I think that could have been laid out (pun intended) in the piece better. She seemed to go from wanting sex with everyone and having it more than a paid prostitute, to the transverse of being in love and willing to kill for it without transition.

All in all, this book and books like it, should not be read for the plot. They’re read for the sex and the “banging” as Mugwump Press so wants. It is a quick, fast, sexy read, and I really can’t wait for the next two installments.

4 stars

Excerpt

Bertha lowered her head, but her eyes never left Grace’s. She saw the love and the desire; it made her even more certain of her actions.

“He says I can never be touched in that way. That I am evil and it will ignite dark demons inside me.” Bertha’s head was still lowered.

Grace took her face in her hands and raised it up and pulled it close to hers. “He is the evil one, my sweet little thing. He denies you what is your right as a woman and a wife, so we will take his rights and that will just be the start of it.”

Bertha was trembling, her eyes wide and afraid. “What are you going to do? Oh Grace, he is the master; he is a man. We are just women.”

“He shall be a cuckold, not a man, and I shall show him who is the master of Thornfield.”

Publisher’s Note: The Bluebird and the Devil is a 12,000 word Victorian erotic short. Book one of three in a trilogy. Contains explicit heterosexual and lesbian sex as well as an orgy involving bisexual women and straight men. A dark Gothic tale with elements of sexual violence, this is not Charlotte Brontë’s Mr. Rochester

AuthorBio

Zachary Bluebird III lives in the burnt out ruin of his imagination after his crazy ex-wife tried to set it on fire. She may still be running round on the third floor of his psyche somewhere. He writes erotica with a literary twist that sometimes gets very twisted. He is a slave to the Mugwump ethos of banging it hard. He has lots of headaches and sore thumbs, but wouldn’t have it any other way.

5+ Stars for Jack of Hearts by A.M. Snead – #M/M Romance #Erotic

Jack of Hearts

Title: Jack of Hearts (Boys of Porn #1)
Author Name: A.M. Snead
Publication Date & Length: September 8, 2014 – 179 pgs

Synopsis

In a taboo industry that thrives on raw, emotionless sex, Gideon Dodd is a visionary who views gay sex as a thing of beauty and something to be celebrated rather than exploited. Gideon’s boys are the best in the business, not merely for their exquisite talents but for the bonds they share with one another as their mutual love for each other thrives on and off the camera. But as within all families, tension – and even jealousies – arise and threaten their ‘harmony’ at both home and work.

Jack Heart – 21, cute and with just enough “cockiness” to be a natural in front of the camera – has a passion for sex, but not for love. Believing that the porn industry poses no threat to his heart, Jack is surprised to discover a new home and a close-knit family among Gideon Dodd’s boys. With Parents who disapprove of his “lifestyle”, and the one person he was closest to now gone, Jack is drawn into the family atmosphere that Gideon has created. Yet when co-star Garrett North begins to test his resistance to falling in love, Jack’s heart suddenly becomes the prize to win. But is Garrett playing for keeps…or is Jack simply another conquest for popular porn star, Garrett North?

5++++ Stars

I absolutely could not put this book down. I had to have MORE.. I had to know what was going on.. While the book does have quite a few intense (and SUPER hot) sex scenes, there is a crazy, on the edge of your seat, What on Earth, who is it situation going on as well.
Jack is the new boy in Gideon’s team of boys that make porns. He is an instant hit with everyone, but one man in particular draws him in like no other ever has.
While trying to deny these growing feelings, Jack is also getting over the quick and painful death of his twin sister. I absolutely loved this part of the story. I felt like even though she wasn’t really there, we got to know her from her notes and comments throughout the story.
The twins.. LOVED.. They were so fun and sexy and awesome all around.
Garrett and Lucas… Loved and hated them for different reason and I’m not giving them away!
I can’t rave enough about this book, really. It’s everything a book should be. It’s sexy. It’s thrilling. It’s exciting. The characters are relatable and flawed and real. I’ll even go as far as saying that A.M. Snead is now my favorite M/M author (and that’s not an easy thing to do)

4.5 Stars
First off, this book had some strange formatting issues. I am unsure if the “changes” between sections were meant to be big black rectangles, but that is what it looks like on the Kindle version. Also, there were some significant spacing issues – where some words were broken up incorrectly or no space was inserted between words. It detracted from the story somewhat, but as long as someone goes back through and fixes those bugs, I think it will be in overall good shape.  One thing that can kind of be distracting for me as a reader is when I want to skip back to a chapter for whatever reason. This type of format does not allow for that, so that was slightly disappointing, especially when I wanted to go back to clarify something I had read.

I really enjoyed the characters in this story. While they are all somewhat of “lost boys”, when they come together, they really are very family oriented. I think my favorite character was Jill. She was spunky and snarky, but so full of love for Jack.

Gideon is the father figure for these “lost boys” and I really enjoyed how he took pride in his children. We are given a sneak peek at what might haunt him, but not enough that it really adds to the story, so I was somewhat curious about his back story. I hope we get to learn more in the upcoming books.

Garrett, Scotty and Jack are kind of the main characters in this story, but “The Twins” are also major players. Each of the dynamics that Snead wrote between these characters was fantastic. You can truly feel the love, angst, hate and uncertainty that each character has amongst the group or in himself.

The sex scenes were hot and wonderful, sad and grotesque, depending on who you were reading about.

I can’t wait for the next book! I want to tease out why things ended the way they did and if Jack really did hear what he heard.

AuthorBio

A.M. Snead was born and raised on the Pacific West Coast, and continues to live in scenic rural Coos County. Having started writing seriously just two years ago, she began with suspense/thrillers and erotic romance, but soon discovered her true passion in M/M romance and passing on the message that ‘all love is beautiful’ and should be cherished and respected and accepted. Being raised in a conservative Christian home, she grew up with the belief that being gay was a sin. But upon reflection of the bible and what she knew of God, she couldn’t help but believe that this was a grave misinterpretation of scripture and God’s view of the matter. Above all, she hopes to weave the message of God’s love for ‘all’ throughout her novels and help others understand the anguish and torment that gays often suffer simply because of who they love. “No one,” she says, “has the right to tell another human being who to love, or that the love they feel is wrong. That is a very intimate, personal matter between that person, the one they love, and God. It is no one else’s place to persecute them for following their heart.”

3.5 Stars for Girls Rule, Boys Drool by Lucy Felthouse – #F/F @cw1985

Girls Rule, Boys Drool

Title: Girls Rule, Boys Drool
Author Name: Lucy Felthouse
Publication Date & Length: December 5th, 2013 – 31 pgs

Synopsis

Three lesbian erotic short stories from popular writer Lucy Felthouse.

Girls Rule, Boys Drool

Boyish dyke Toni is working at the local golf club, serving champagne to arrogant, privileged folk when she spots Clarissa. She’s one of the posh people, but she looks like she’d rather be somewhere else—anywhere else. Toni’s immediately smitten and wants to put a smile on the older woman’s beautiful face, so she decides to show Clarissa just why girls rule and boys drool.

Making An Impression

Joely’s holiday has consisted mainly of chilling out by the hotel pool, having the occasional swim and reading lots. That is, until a hot brunette arrives and suddenly, Joely has trouble concentrating on anything else. Her gaydar non-existent, Joely decides on an unusual course of action to find out whether the newcomer bats for the same side as her.

Fear as an Aphrodisiac

Girlfriends Nikki and Sonya are on holiday in Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital city. They’re having fun sightseeing, until a super-scary tourist attraction sends Nikki into meltdown. Once outside again, Nikki slowly starts to feel better—and, much to her surprise, horny. Quickly realising that the fear has acted as a potent aphrodisiac, she decides to take advantage of that fact, right there in the middle of the city.

ThreeandHalfStars

Three short stories with three different couples in wildly sexy situations.

The overall writing was well done to me. There were parts that were a bit confusing because of the British terms as I am an American, but I didn’t feel it was too big of a deal.

I would liked to have seen a bit more emotion/feeling from the characters besides how sexy and hot the other character was. The best one really was Fear as an Aphrodisiac for feelings as we felt the terror from Nikki. The transition to the naughty bit was a bit odd to me though.

The naughty scenes were plentiful… but some parts were missing the sensual side of such interactions.

Lastly, I felt like the name let the book down. I didn’t feel it had anything to do with the book or the characters and their experiences. It comes across a bit sexist, which isn’t appealing. But the cover art is great, I just didn’t care for the actual name.

I would recommend this author and would definitely be willing to read other works of hers as I think there is a lot of potential for something really great there.

New Year’s Resolution 
Tina’s New Year’s resolution brings out the explorer in her partner, Beth, and the two women go on a mission to find the perfect new toy for their sexual adventures.

Sybian Sorority 
Violet has a huge crush on her first college roommate, Chloe—but Violet can’t confess, because nobody knows Violet prefers girls. Chloe invites Violet to join the Eta Nu Pi sorority and Violet can’t resist Chloe’s persuasive argument, but when the girls find themselves involved in an erotic, mind-blowing hazing, both of them discover something about themselves—and each other.

The Hairdresser 
When Amanda’s hairdresser, Jen, discovers Amanda’s first gray hair at a routine appointment, it prompts a re-examination of more than just Amanda’s roots. As the two women commiserate about the dangers of getting older, they discover more in common than bad boyfriends—and a day of beauty and pampering turns into a night of sexual discovery and pleasure.

Pajama Party 
April plans one last sleepover at the end of the summer so she and her best friend, Casey, can do all those girlish, silly things together before they have to go be grown-ups in college. But when a game of double-dog-dare goes too far, the girls find themselves saying a far more heated goodbye than either of them had planned.

Moms’ Night Out 
Jaime and Caroline hit it off right away, both single mothers with young children. Jaime and Caroline jump at the chance for a Moms Night Out, but nursing mother Jaime doesn’t plan on how painful the night might be. When Caroline offers a unique solution to Jaime’s problem, together the two women not only save their night out, they discover one more delicious thing they have in common!

Girl Scout Trip 
Paige isn’t looking forward to chaperoning her younger sister’s Girl Scout Troop for a camping trip outing—burning S’mores, telling the same old ghost stories and listening to little girls giggle all night long—until she meets the new Girl Scout Troop leader, Brandi.

Pool Party 
When her new neighbor, Gina, moves in, shy Nancy gets invited to her pool party, but she isn’t quite ready for all the attention she gets in the bikini that Gina’s loaned her. And she definitely isn’t ready for that drunken, crazy point in the party when everyone abandons their bathing suits altogether!

First Time 
Molly likes babysitting for single mom, Faith. She’s younger and cooler than most of the other people she sits for and Molly finds herself lingering at the end of the night, asking the older girl questions about life and love… and sex. When Faith comes home a little drunk and a lot horny, Molly finds that tonight, Faith has some show-and-tell answers to her provocative questions.

College Days 
Wild and crazy college roommates Whitney and Meg end up at a local fraternity party where Meg, furious at her boyfriend for cheating on her, is looking to even the score. Whitney has no problem backing up her friend in her time of need, so when a drinking game gets out of hand, the two girls put on a show that will go down in fraternity history. Who knew? Turns out revenge is a dish best served up blazing hot!

Stay
Claire has experienced a great loss, and is facing another one—and she just doesn’t know if she’s ready to deal. Dr. Mary Rennalls looks at beautiful Claire with more than pity and compassion, but will the two women find solace in each other’s arms, or will Claire’s fear of losing yet another loved one keep her from trusting again?

I’ve never read Selena Kitt before but I’ll tell you after reading this I will be looking for more of her work!!! The tens short stories are EXTREMELY sexy and naughty. Every story was very well written with believable characters that sucked you in and made you wish you were there yourself! They are all solid Woman/Woman encounters. Some are first time experiences while others are women that have been with other women before. Such a great combination all around for every story in this collection!
