I loved every minute of this book. This was a beautifully written love story, filled with so many emotions among the characters, that were captured beautifully.  I was drawn to Kayley, with her struggle of what choice to make.  The author didn’t rush her decision and the whole story wasn’t just about her.  Luke and Sean were main characters that added so much to her journey. I loved how Luke was so controlling, yet Sean evened out the whole relationship. There were so many parts of the book I liked but my favorite was when Luke and Sean met Kayley for the first time.

The book wasn’t just about the romance, there was a bit of struggle with one of the other characters dealing with his shifting.  There was also some suspense with Sean.  The whole team fit so well in this story.

Since this was book 1, I’m hoping book 2 will be about Taylor or Will’s story.  I can’t wait for book 2 to read more about this team.

Yummy wolf shifters….. and a girl!!
Book 1 of an exciting new paranormal romance series Wild Hunters.
Pack Alpha Luke has dreamed of Kayley for years, and in turn his mate Sean has felt the dreams as well. Sean suffered brutality in his previous relationship but he is pretty much recovered. Ever since Kayley was a small child she has been drawn to wolves, and they have been the focus of her art work. She has also experienced erotic dreams about 2 sexy men that she has never met. Kayley suffered a very traumatic event in her last relationship and moved across the country and pretty much kept to herself. She works as a tattoo artist.
The journey with this trio contained all the elements I love in a story. A vulnerable female, and two sexy males that turn in to wolves!!! And, they are all mates, Kayley just doesn’t know it yet. The author pulled me in from page 1. I felt sympathetic for the heroine. And the testosterone
coming through the pages when we were introduced to the Hero’s… was palpable. I was seriously holding my breathing and panting the next. The lead male Luke, is so sexy and has this alpha quality that is not annoying in the least. His mate Sean is sexy, vulnerable and strong when he needs to be. I found their intimate moments very sexy!!!! The descriptions during sexy time were delicious, seriously made me wish I WAS in those pages! There is some drama and I am glad that it was handled in a timely manner. There was some very sweet moments that made me smile through tears.
I really enjoyed this journey and would definitely read more in the series!!

I picked this novella up because it was free and wanted something short and sexy to read. Sadly, I was let down.
While I loved the concept, two men and one woman. Sort of admiration from afar turned into more. It didn’t end up working for me.
Angus, the landscaper, is at a wine tasting because Lily, who recently hired him, convinced him to go. The first part of the story drags on and I’m not entirely sure where it was supposed to lead to, but it didn’t work for me. It seemed like Angus was there alone until POOF Lily was there. However, for me, in the end he was the most likable character.
Lily can’t be with Angus even after they share an amazing kiss because she feels attached to Blake, a friend whom she’s secretly loved for years. At one point she admits to having slept with other people while in lust for Blake, but all she can think about is Blake, yet somehow nothing has ever come of their relationship…. until Angus.
Then there is Blake, who earned his money from some software and bought a hotel to fix up and use as an investment. This is how the story comes together. Lily is bringing Angus to meet Blake since he did such a good job on her yard. Oops, there is some kissing and naughty action along the way so when they arrive Lily is still flushed from it, however, that is not what catches Blake’s eye. It is the sexy man meat, Angus.
All in all, it wasn’t a horrible story. I think it was silly to have the insta love scene and declarations. The sex scene was eh, okay for me. It lacked emotion and feelings for me (even with the whole ‘I love you because you banged me’ bit)
Editing seriously lacked as there is numerous misspelled words.
However, it was free, it was short, so that helped.

TWO 5 Star and ONE 4 Star Reviews for Trouble Comes in Threes by M.A. Church – #Menage #Paranormal #MM #Romance @nomoretears00

TroubleComesInThrees_final

Title: Trouble Comes in Threes
Author Name: M.A. Church
Publication Date & Length: December 26, 2014 – 234 pgs

Synopsis

A snowstorm in the South—on New Year’s Eve—is a perfect recipe for a catastrophe. After two soul-crushing bad breaks, Kirk’s waiting for disaster number three to strike when, naturally, two stray cats arrive on his doorstep during the storm and decide to make themselves at home. Tenderhearted Kirk lets them stay even though there’s something decidedly odd about his overly friendly felines.

Out of the punishing weather and full of tuna, Dolf and Tal are happy to be snug in Kirk’s house. But then their human goes outside for firewood and suffers a nasty fall that leaves him unconscious. Now the two cats have no choice but to reveal themselves.

Kirk wakes up to find the two kitties are actually Dolf and Tal. They’re cat shifters—and his destined mates. Being part of a feline threesome is enough for Kirk to grapple with, but soon he learns they come from a clowder that doesn’t believe humans and shifters should mix. Kirk knew those two cats would be trouble. Little does he know the real trouble lies ahead.

I really enjoyed this book. After I got over my initial giggles of cat shifters (mainly because I am not a huge cat person), I really liked the characters.

Tal, Dolf and Kirk have a great relationship. I liked how Church wrote the relationship between Tal and Dolf and had them living and loving in a relationship that wasn’t necessarily missing something, but when Kirk joined, showed them that they could have a meaningful relationship with Kirk too – that he completed their triad.

I also liked the protagonist – that Kirk wasn’t necessarily welcomed, but that his mates defended him with their every breath. That type of devotion was so sweet.

I still laughed when Church described their fighting – picturing in my head, cats fighting, I can’t help but chuckle.

Overall, I really liked the story and hope that Church writes another one about Remi. I also would love to hear more about the main characters’ main lives and how things are going.

This normally wouldn’t be a reading choice for me but I thought I’d go out of my comfort zone and read a shifter book.  I have only read one or two, but boy am I glad I did, this one was beyond good!
This was the most amazing, fun book to read.  I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed it. Once I started it I could not put it down.  The story flowed so well it just kept me interested right till the end.

I loved Kirk, he was a guy down on his luck, then two cats showed up. It was so funny when he was talking to them in cat form. The dialogue was the best. His reaction to their shifting was priceless.  As their relationship  progressed I felt bad for how people treated him. The story took some turns I didn’t expect, but it made the story that much better and interesting.
Tal and Dolf were very strong characters, I don’t think the story would have been as enjoyable if they were portrayed any differently. They each brought something different to the relationship.

The only thing I found annoying was the repeated use of the words sexy, goddess, and cutie.  Otherwise a very enjoyable book!

Dolf is definitely my favorite. Something about the protective not afraid to fight next in line to be Alfa that I find sexy. Tal I like for his peacekeeping and sensitive side he is his mates exact opposite. And helps Balance him out. Neither realized anything was missing until they met Kirk the sexy human mechanic.  I love the fact Kirk fills in all there missing pieces. Not afraid to stand up to Dolf and sensitive enough to understand Tal. They all complete each other.
I also love the fact that even thou Kirk is a human witch brings all types of problems and challanges they refuse to give up on him.
I love how seamlessly the book flows from everyday life, problems, emotional and sex.
I also enjoyed the fact that even when the sex is kinky you can see all the emotions behind it. Although there is plenty of sex kinky and otherwise that is NOT what the entire book is about. This book puts a whole new spin on feline shifters and I love it! I give it 4 stars!

Excerpt

Dolf picked out the saw he wanted, then followed Tal to another aisle. His mate pointed out the different kinds, but Tal’s words had rapidly faded into a meaningless buzz. There, on the air currents in the store, was the sweetest scent. It was light and flowery, reminding him of honeysuckle. He breathed deeply, taking the scent into himself. His cock hardened immediately and his head spun. A yowl threatened to escape.

That scent… that scent was seductive and alluring. It spoke to him, whispering things that made him need. His cat paced frantically in his mind, tail slashing madly. The need to pounce, to sink his canines in and drink that sweet, life-giving blood of his…. His gums tingled and saliva flooded his mouth.

He swallowed, then swallowed again as his head pounded, his heart rate spiking as one thought screamed through his mind: Mate! Another mate! Where was that scent coming from? Or who? And by the goddess, why? He already had a mate. What was their goddess thinking, giving him another? But he couldn’t ignore the reaction. It had been the same when he met Tal.

4 Stars for Any Way We Want by Grey Cole – #Menage #MM #MFM #Erotica @greycoleauthor

1.2

Title: Any Way We Want (Want #1)
Author Name: Grey Cole
Publication Date & Length: November 25, 2014 – 100pgs

Synopsis

I couldn’t have picked two men more opposing than they. One dark-headed, slightly controlling, but intuitive. The other all unruly copper curls, somewhat bashful, but sensual. Yet, my fall for them felt the same—hard and fast.

I never slept around or cheated, but when you’re the girl who got dumped for being too kinky–you realize and accept you are different. Somehow, some way, they had to be mine. My mind spun with what could be, and I set out to entice them with my fantasy.

Only, my plot had a twist…Royce and Shea were already lovers. Luckily for me, they liked to share.

Warning: Contains a headstrong daughter of nudist, hippy parents, an Alpha with seriously protective instincts, positive representations of Asperger’s Syndrome and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and oh yeah, M/M, M/M/M, M/M/F, and M/F/M.

Review

FourStars

This is the first in a series, and it definitely left me curious to read what comes next.

The flow, pacing, and style of the story were all excellent. I didn’t feel that the story got hung up at any point, and it held my interest throughout. The sex scenes were really sensual and steamy, but not overdone or exaggerated, and there was plenty in between to hold the story together.

I loved that the author didn’t shy away both from having bisexual men and from using the word rather than having them shrug it off as “undefinable.” I also thought the way Royce and Shea worked through that was pretty realistic, and I’m glad they didn’t just jump to conclusions about themselves.

There were just a few things that made me hesitate, and they are the reason I couldn’t give this a higher rating. First, everything outside of Royce and Shea’s relationship and the sex scenes felt more like the author telling us rather than showing us. For example, I would have liked to see more of Luna’s past instead of it just being a bit of random dialog with her friend. There also wasn’t enough evidence of Shea’s Asperger’s outside of mentioning it several times and one or two moments that might have indicated some signs.

I didn’t really feel captivated by the relationship Luna had with Shea and Royce. We were supposed to believe they were deeply in love, but again, that was the author telling us that. There was no real evidence. Their entire relationship that we saw “onscreen” was based on sex, and she felt to me like the disposable third wheel. Even Royce implies that when he says he and Shea are forever and it’s fine if it doesn’t work out with her–and this was after they were supposedly all in love. In fact, they had more chemistry with the first person they added as a third than with Luna. It came across more as a straight woman’s fantasy about what it would be like to have sex with gay men than a genuine love trio.

Despite that, I have hope for this series. I’m interested to see where things go, as it was left on quite a big cliffhanger. I’m looking forward to the next part of the series.

This book had suspense, romance and sex.  It was well written with an excellent story. It wasn’t just all about the sex, though there was plenty of that, but a very good plotted story.  I did find myself thinking Merrie could have made better choices at the beginning, but she proved herself to be brave, strong and confident.  She got lucky when she was found by Braden and Leo, they were very caring men, who took a chance on helping her.
Since this was book 1 of the Red Wolves MC, a couple of their members were introduced in this book.  I hope the author does book two about the MC President, North, he was working to clean up his club, and worked well with the Sheriff in this book.  A very nice quick read.  I would read more by this author in this series.

Sherry

FiveStars

I really enjoyed this story. The sex was sizzling and despite the relationship developing rather quickly, it didn’t feel all that rushed. Merrie is somewhat naïve when it comes to social situations, but not so in the ways of life putting bad things in her way. She has had a hard life and when she tries to pick herself up – she ultimately runs straight in to Braden and Leo.

Braden and Leo were an interesting pair. They have almost nothing in common, except their address. Their mannerisms and behaviors are very different, but somehow, they both are drawn to Merrie. I really enjoyed Leo’s character – I felt that I knew more about his past. Braden was somewhat of an unknown. The only real thing the reader gets to know is that he had a failed marriage, which in turn, makes him the strong, silent type.

The two police authorities in the story were great to read with, but I felt that Carter left the reader wondering about the local office. I enjoyed the strained relationships, the angst and the ultimate ending to their parts of the story.

I enjoyed Beth Carters writing style and would definitely read her again.

I like writing about the very ordinary girl thrust into extraordinary circumstances, so my heroines will probably never be lawyers, doctors or corporate highrollers. I try to write characters who aren’t cookie cutters and push myself to write complicated situations that I have no idea how to resolve, forcing me to think outside the box. I love writing characters who are real, complex and full of flaws, heroes and heroines who find redemption through love.

I’ve been pretty fortunate in life to experience some amazing things. I’ve lived in France, traveled throughout Europe, Australia and New Zealand. I am a mom to an amazing little boy. I live in Los Angeles, surrounded by friends and family. I hate washing dishes but I love cooking. I hate washing clothes but I love wearing them. Writing my bio is difficult because I never know what to say so I hope you like this one. My favorite color is red but I look best in black (it’s slimming). I hate people who don’t pick up their dog’s crap in public places, people who don’t use turn signals, and I really hate people who are rude and condescending. I especially hate discrimination in all and every form. And although I love holding a book in my hand, I absolutely adore my ereader, whom I’ve named Ruby.

5 & 4 Stars for Brooklyn Bound by Jenna Byrnes – #Menage #BDSM @Totally_Bound

0.2

Title: Brooklyn Bound
Author Name: Jenna Byrnes
Publication Date & Length: January 2, 2015 – 90 pgs

Synopsis

Tucker and Gabe discover they’re soulmates. If only they can get Gabe’s wife Brooklyn to admit her own true desires.

Tucker Gleason is a junior partner in the prestigious law firm of Dryer, Stokes and Associates. His career is going well—he’s on track to make full partner, having won more cases than any other lawyer in the firm. His love life is another matter. On his own for too long, he gets a much needed jolt when he meets one of the owners of the construction company hired to build the new law firm offices.

Gabe Conner is a happily married man, until he meets Tucker and is reminded of the hot gay relationship he experienced in college. Thinking it was just youthful experimentation, he never mentioned it to his wife. But now that he’s met Tucker and the two men are so drawn to each other, he has no choice but to bring it up.

Brooklyn Conner isn’t as shocked to learn her husband has gay tendencies as she is to find out he’s interested in one of her bosses. She’s a paralegal at Dryer and Stokes, and worries about losing not only her husband but also her job if things fall through with the sexy junior partner. She can’t resist their advances when they both join forces to seduce her, and quickly decides she doesn’t need to. Sex with two men is hot. Until Tucker’s true appetite is revealed, and Brook’s vanilla world is turned upside down.

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of M/M intimacy and ménage in a polyamorous relationship between two men and a woman.

Publisher’s Note: The stories in this series are linked solely by theme and can be read in any order. This book can be read as a standalone title.

FiveStars

I found I absolutely loved every moment of this book.  It was written so well it pulled me in and I couldn’t put it down till I was done.  A simple story of two men, Tucker and Gabe, having an instant attraction and making it to include Gabes wife, Brooklyn.

At first I found myself feeling awful for Brooklyn.  One day your husband comes home and says he’s attracted to another man but wants to include her, how do you process that.  But the author handled it in a sensitive way and gave her the perfect story line.  I liked that she didn’t say no right off, but gave it a chance, made for a more interesting story.

I was a little put out, when Tucker started buying them gifts, like he was buying their love, but it did fit in the story perfectly.  Of course there was no lack of hot sex. This was a very good book, I highly recommend it.

Sherry

FourStars

This is a very sweet love story between three people, who aren’t looking for anything at all and just stumble across love. I have to say, the first scene threw me for a loop. It doesn’t really fit with the rest of the story at all. I don’t normally read M/M, and I took this book because it was a menage, but the first scene was just man, man, man (I would use a crasser term, but I’m trying to play nice with this review). As soon as the second scene start, the theme for the overall book and the tone of it started.

My biggest complaint for this novella is that love seemed to be very instantaneous between Gabe and Tucker. Like within the first chapter or two. It didn’t seem very believable to me. The only other issue I had was, in my head at least, I kept yelling at Tucker to go see Brooklyn, mostly because I knew that would solve 95% of the issue she had, and he never did. For someone so forward, it seemed odd and out of character. If she truly was a part of the relationship, then it shouldn’t have bothered him or made him wary.

I did love how there was tension and unease concerning the relationship that was being proposed, but I wish it had been delved into more. Sex doesn’t fix everything, and it seemed at times in this novella that it did. I appreciated, greatly, the discussions about both the polyamorous lifestyle and the BDSM lifestyle, which seemed to be far more in depth than any talk of love and lust. I think this was the main theme of the book, to break some notions that certain individuals have about what polyamory and BDSM “people” look, feel and talk like.

Overall, I give this book 4 stars. More for the point of it than the execution of the plotline. The writing was very well-done with only a few grammatical issues here and there.

Excerpt

“Suck it!”

Tucker Gleason snapped his head to the left upon hearing the command. The speaker was a handsome man with long, flowing black hair and the tightest abs he’d ever seen on someone who was obviously in his forties.And the longest cock. His mouth watered at the sight of the thick shaft with a bulbous purple head.

Two naked men knelt in front of the well-hung Dominant, paying homage to the magnificent stud. Hands cuffed behind their backs, both subservients used mouths and tongues only, enthusiastically working together to give the man what appeared to be one hell of a blow job.

The Master patted each of their heads. “That’s it. Good… So good.” He glanced up and spotted Tucker watching. A mixture of lust and pride shone in his eyes as he smiled. “Care to join us? We’ll always make room for one more.”

Tucker waved and kept walking. “Another time, but thanks.” He passed three men who were vigorously chain-fucking on a burgundy-colored leather sofa, and passed a group of four male bodies, melded into such an odd position that he couldn’t tell what they were doing.

The door on the far wall led into the bar and lounge area of the Rose & Thorn Society, one of the biggest BDSM social clubs in Southern California. Tucker and his former partner Mason had frequented the place in their heyday. Both of them had loved the bawdy, raucous activity. Mason would have taken the long-haired hunk up on his offer in a heartbeat, as long as Tucker had agreed. They’d been adventurous in those days, playing hard and loving well.

Mason had been gone nearly a year, and Tucker hadn’t been back to the club in all that time. At first he hadn’t been interested, and after a while he just hadn’t thought he’d be able to face the people there. Eventually he’d settled into a celibate routine made easier by long hours at work and the occasional hand job in the shower.

Recently, the old urges had returned and Tucker had realized that at thirty, he was too young to live like a monk. He’d updated his ‘clean bill of health’ certificate and had returned to the club, thinking that perhaps a night of not thinking would be just what he needed. But now when it came down to it, he wasn’t ready to hop in the sack with people he didn’t know. The scenarios in the gay-themed room had turned him on, but for some reason he just couldn’t dive back in. It was more difficult being there alone, he decided, but it wasn’t just that. He missed Mason. He missed being in a relationship, waking up with someone, going for coffee and muffins on Sunday or staying in bed all morning and going out for a late lunch.

Being alone sucks.

He didn’t stop for a drink at the bar, just left and climbed into his dark blue Lincoln Navigator, then headed home. Returning to his two bedroom condo didn’t cheer him up much, because as he walked through the spacious living room all he could see was Mason. Photos of the man and shots of them together, grouped in black and silver frames that matched the décor of the room his old lover had fashionably decorated. He’d thought about changing things up, but Mason had had the flair of the duo, and Tucker wouldn’t know where to begin. He had a diploma from the University of Southern California and a law degree from Stanford, but decorating was not his thing. The house looked nice and that was good enough for him, even if it did remind him on a daily basis of what he’d lost.

Standing in front of the fridge, Tucker downed a bottle of cold water then went to plug his cell phone into the charger for the night. A small green light blinked at him, notifying him of a text message. He kept his phone on silent, hating it when people’s cells constantly chirped or buzzed. He’d check his messages in his own time, not when the phone told him to, much to the chagrin of his father, who was also his boss.

He scrolled through a couple of screens and saw that the message was indeed from William Dryer, the man his mother had married when Tucker was two. The only father he’d ever known, and definitely more of a dad than the man who wouldn’t give up legal rights so that Will could adopt him.

Remember our meeting at eight a.m. tomorrow. Don’t be late.

Tucker’s fingers flew over the keyboard of his smartphone.

I’ll be there.

Jenna Byrnes could use more cabinet space and more hours in a day. She’d fill the kitchen with gadgets her husband purchases off TV and let him cook for her to his heart’s content. She’d breeze through the days adding hours of sleep, and more time for writing the hot, erotic romance she loves to read.

Jenna thinks everyone deserves a happy ending, and loves to provide as many of those as possible to her gay, lesbian and hetero characters. Her favorite quote, from a pro-gay billboard, is “Be careful who you hate. It may be someone you love.”

5 Stars for Unexpected Moments by Bailey Bradford – #MM #Menage #AuthorPost @BaileyBFun4Me @Totally_Bound

BaileyBradford_UnexpectedMoments_600x315_final

Title: Unexpected Moments (Unexpected #2)
Author Name: Bailey Bradford
Publication Date & Length: December 12, 2014 – 189pgs

Synopsis

Love begins at the most unexpected moment.

Carter Hausemann and Eddie Canales are embarking on a new romance. They know they’re compatible sexually. Now it’s time to find out if they’re meant for each other—and a third man, because Carter has always known what he needed, he’d just been afraid to reach for it.

Eddie will do whatever it takes to make Carter happy, and since he’s not the jealous type as long as he’s included, he’s more than willing to see if a relationship can work between three men. But first he and Carter need to concentrate on them.

Dare Habrock has the microbrew everyone’s talking about. He also has a secret that has kept him from having a lover in far too long.

When these three meet, they begin to understand that love flourishes in the most unexpected moments.

But someone is determined to destroy every bit of joy they have.

Reader Advisory: This books contains scenes of multiple male ménage.

FiveStars

This book had a little of everything, tense situations, romance, and problems with family accepting their relationship.

This story had three very strong characters. Eddie, Carter and Dare. It was perfect the way Eddie and Carter worked at their relationship first, then looked for another to join.  They took the time to see what they each brought to the relationship, and waited to find the right guy to join them.  I thought that Dare complimented the two of them and they all fit together well.  The author had the mother’s, of two of them, having trouble excepting all three of them in love. But the dialogue regarding that was done quite well, I liked that the guys wouldn’t let the mom’s take away their love from each other.

I really enjoyed the tense plot that revolved around the three and it seemed to bring them closer through all the horrible things that happened. The whole plot was written so riveting that I was actually on edge for them to prove who was doing it and capturing him.  Although I was not excepting how they found him.

I loved that the book wasn’t just about sex it had an actual story.  It was written well and kept you interested throughout. Definitely a good read.

AuthorInterview

Hi, I’m Bailey and I’ve got a new book out, Unexpected Moments. It’s a follow-up to the short story, Unexpected Places, that debuted in Totally Bound’s new What’s His Passion? imprint. It continues the story of Eddie and Carter, along with new developments in their relationship. I don’t want to give too much away 😀 There’s action, adventure, and yes, sex. 😀

If you purchase the book at Totallybound.com , there’s extra content in the way of a Bonus Scene, author interview, and a little note and autograph. I really need to work on my handwriting.

Today I’m blogging about people who inspire me, and that’s a Top-5 list! I do like lists, although not if they’re chores or bills. Those aren’t fun at all.

Anyway. Here we go!

  1. Oh man, y’all seriously make so many days better. The support and laughter from y’all is amazing. I’ll say it again: I’ve met some of the best people online. There are days where y’all restore my faith in humanity.
  2. My family. Sometimes they inspire me by being annoying, not just by being great. I don’t mean the entire family is annoying at once, but you know, there are days when a kid just snaps and snarls and it’s not a good time. Even so, those days serve to remind me that everyone has it rough at times, and you just love them through it, and love is inspiring.
  3. Other authors. Not just ones I interact with, either. I read a lot online, and am a lurker. There, I admitted it. I read about their lives and am inspired, just as the incredibly talented authors I do talk to inspire me. They blow me away with their kindness and their talent.
  4. My closest friends. One asked me to write about snow leopard shifters after she watched a special on them. Another made me an organizational chart I am going to use when I can sit down to work on it. A third helps keep me sane when I’m angry and ranty-ranty. Still another one has been there for me for a quarter of a century. I love them all, very much.
  5. People I don’t know. Have you ever looked at someone, say out at the mall or in court when you’re trying to get out of a ticket? Okay, other places, too. But on with the point! Someone catches your eye. Maybe they’re attractive, maybe they aren’t. That’s not always the point. Sometimes a person just has this presence and you can’t help but notice them. And you start making up stories about them—who they are, what they do for a living, how they came to be where they are. That kind of imagination helps a lot. Although it does make me seem kind of creepy. Are you thinking I’m creepy? You are, aren’t you? Good. I’ll keep at it then. 😉 But seriously, anything about someone you encounter, even at a distance, can inspire. The sight, scent, sound of them can do it. Just let your imagination go.

Inspiration really is everywhere!

I am a married mom of four who spends most of the day writing, either on stories or at the blog. I love to write as much as I love to read. I am generally quiet and laid back, choosing to let things slide off me rather than stick and irritate me.

And it’s really hard trying to think of descriptives for myself, so I’ll just let y’all e-mail me or comment at the blog if there’s something specific you’d like to know, and spare you from reading a boring bio:D

Another Four Star Review for Owned for Christmas by Willa Edwards – #Menage @willaedwards @Totally_Bound

18745190

Title: Owned for Christmas
Author Name: Willa Edwards
Publication Date & Length: December 19, 2014

Synopsis

Christmas with her boyfriend’s family seems like a lovely idea—until she finds her previous Dom staying for the holidays too.

Kate Baker is nervous about meeting her boyfriend Daniel’s family. When she walks into the family home to find Grant, her former Dom, spending the holidays with them too, her world turns upside down. How can she spend Christmas with the man who shattered her heart and broke her trust in the whole BDSM scene?

Although she had no idea Grant and Daniel were brothers, Grant revives all those needs that Daniel can’t fulfil. But she won’t give up the man who helped mend her broken heart after Grant shattered it—even if she has to bury the submissive part of herself to do it.

A year ago, Grant Farrell left the woman he loved—and the best sub he’s ever controlled—to tend the family ranch after his father’s death. It almost tore his heart out to leave Kate but he had no other choice. He didn’t realise how much it had hurt them both until she shows up at his family’s home on his brother’s arm.

Now more than ever he’s determined to keep her in his life, even if he has to share her to do it. But half measures won’t be enough anymore. He needs either to own her completely, or give her up to Daniel for good.

Can he convince Kate to forgive him for the pain he caused her and the secrets he kept? Or will he lose her to his brother for his past mistakes?

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of anal sex and double penetration

This was an excellent story.  It was a warm holiday read.  The author used very descriptive language so you could visualize the scenes well. The story flowed well.  The author had you loving the relationship between Kate and Daniel.   But then introduced Grant and the story sizzled.
The characters in the story were perfect.   Where Daniel was a very loving, caring and sweet guy, his brother Grant, was the opposite and was a very dominating guy.  Kate was a loving young woman knowing something was missing in her life. The story is about how two sexy cowboys are going to work their way into Kate’s life.  A very quick, excellent read!

I’ve wanted to be writer as long as I can remember.  My mother claims that I wanted to be a writer when I was four (but I’m still not sure I knew what a writer did back then).   I completed my first novel at the ripe age of 8 in my grandmother’s dining room using my mother’s typewriter from college.  It consisted of one typed page, four chapters, each a paragraph long.  The story was about a set of alien sisters that landed on earth, had to learn how to make their way home but in the process fall in love with two human boys.  I know, a love story from the very beginning.  I blame Walt Disney.

This was an awesome story.  Despite my not entirely liking the dynamic between brothers, I really enjoyed the story.  Grant, Daniel and Kate were a perfect trio.

Kate is a strong, independent women who finds love in Daniel. Daniel is a character who values his woman, knows what he wants and goes after it.  These two together make a sexy team. But, when you throw in Grant, it becomes a combustible situation. Kate and Grant’s dynamic is so different than the dynamic that she has with Daniel.

The domination that Grant has over Kate is overwhelming and passionate.  She doesn’t really know how to react since she had thought that she was going to be OK with burying that desire.  Grant also thought he was surviving without exerting his dominance over Kate – but both realize they need each other to fulfill those desires. But, when Daniel is added to the mix, this trio is explosive, sexy, cowboy yumminess!

Will the brothers be able to overcome their past resentments to move forward?  Will Kate be able to forgive the Dom who broke her? The relationship that ensues is one of hot sex, dominance and trust.

oooh.. Watch out Jenny’s coming out! I loved this installment with the scene between Clara and Jenny… and Sam.
Watching Clara listen to her Dom even when she’s facing her biggest fear is wonderful.
I couldn’t give it five stars though because I felt like if Jenny has never been with a woman before, never been a Domme before she’s a little too knowledgeable for what the situation and her actions.
Another great erotic short from Liz though! I still miss our lovely ghost though.

AuthorBio

When I was in Second Grade (just a couple of years ago, really), my teacher told my mother I should start a diary because I needed an outlet for my active and vivid imagination. You see, I was a talkative child who would disrupt her class by engaging my colleagues in endless conversations. I loved telling them the stories my grandfather used to tell me.
I guess the teacher wasn’t a big fan of my stories. Or maybe she preferred a quieter group of students. Either way, my mother bought me a diary and I happily wrote on it for a month or so. Then, I gave it up. I didn’t see the appeal since I was writing for my own enjoyment only. I missed the audience my friends in school provided me. I went back to disturbing my dear teacher’s class.
Since then, I’ve been a hungry reader. I read anything and everything I can get my hands on – from the classics to erotica. And that’s how I got the courage to start writing down some of my naughty fantasies. Nowadays, I’m a writer. I write erotic romances and some erotica, too.
Living in New Orleans improves my creativity tenfold. It’s such a vibrant, gorgeous and wonderful city but NOLA also has a darker, wickeder side that has always captured my imagination.
So, welcome to my world of steamy, sexy Alpha males and naughty, independent women. Add a touch of the paranormal in the presence of some wicked souls and you’ll get the picture.

Sit back, fire up your Kindle and enjoy the ride!

XOXO
Liz Gavin
