Fitting in – a Shades of Cinderfella Story

logo

by Jo Smutdickted

Fitting In by Silvia Violet is sort of a Shades of Cinderfella story. Mason, a bartender, is working to save up some money so he can finally complete his college. His life isn”t terrible – in fact it isn”t really anything. It merely is. Gray and Jack are two hot cops who have a yen for the hot bartender. Mason thinks it is all about a one time three way – but Jack and Gray feel very differently. The sex might be flaming hot with passions running high – and it will be up to Jack and Gray to make sure Mason doesn”t run away!

This is a very hot story – it is full of yummy MM goodness with plenty of kink to satisfy your cravings. I did struggle at first to keep Jack and Gray straight, especially as both are commanding men. However they sorted out after a while – and anyway I like both so it was all good.

When it comes to fantasy fiction of the non elves and high priestess kind I don”t really care how realistic the actions of the people would be – and here that”s a good thing because I couldn”t imagine cops acting the way Jack and Gray act, especially as they don”t know Mason and have a lot to lose. I did think some of the misfiring in the communcation department would have been resolved with just a little more chat – but these are guys and not everyone is comfy with sharing. I loved how confident and comfortable the two were with each other because it made it more believable that a third would work. There really isn”t any of the situations that sometimes occur in threesomes where 2 1 = 1 1 and 1 1 but never quite makes it to the whole total of 3. Not so here – that was the part I enjoyed the most and it made the story really fun to read!

Taught to Kneel by Natasha Knight – hot enough to provide some scorch!

Review by Jo Smutdickted

Gabrielle has gone back to Italy to find atonement for her past. It is a punishment for her as she and her husband came here in earlier times when they were in love and happy. Once Julian gets a glimpse of Gabrielle he cannot help but connect with her on a level that is more than friends but less than forever. The sizzle between them is hot and so when Julian offers Gabrielle a punishment to absolve her of her guilt she throws caution to the wind and accepts his offer. Can Gabrielle let go of her past and will Julian give her space to chose a future with him?

First I have to say this is the perfect “space” for this novella. Although it is shorter the time frame of the book fits perfectly in its pages. It is more of a weekend interlude and not a meet and fall immediately in love. Both Julian and Gabrielle found something they were not expecting, and it altered their life to such a degree that they need to consider the future. The characters are well rounded, although they aren”t too deep which wouldn”t work for this length anyway. The story is believable and just hot enough to provide some scorch!

Review

EdiecoverLately, it seems as if bratty characters are very popular.  Why is this?  Recently, there are several authors who proudly declare that their bratty submissive or character is desirable.  They also claim real life dominants do love the bratty submissive and eagerly seek them.  Apparently I’m the only one who finds bratty characters deplorable.  In this story, Ms. Vitsky does it right by showing what happens when a bratty author crosses the line.

 

It could be my conservative leanings or my Asian upbringing.  I tend to ignore these attention seeking drama queens.  For me, bratty means spoiled, self-centered, potentially abusive – so many negative connotations.  In Editorial Board, Spring Meadows is the epitome of an entitlement mentality brat.  Ms. Vitsky does an excellent job of creating this character.  Other than negatively responding to reviewers, Spring Meadows is the prototype of “authors behaving badly”.  Reading from Spring’s perspective causes many eye rolls at her deluded self-importance and career limiting antics.  Her actions are almost too sad to be comical.

 

The redeeming character counter balancing self-absorbed Spring is rational Rachel.  Rachel Templeton possesses the patience of a saint.  Rachel’s caring demeanor towards Spring is beyond even a mother’s care for their own child.  In fact, it is safe to speculate most parents would disown Spring.  Rachel never gives up on Spring and uses some lovely discipline to bring her in line.

 

The discipline part of this book is delightfully gratifying.  It seems Rachel goes very easy on Spring.  A much stricter application is recommended.  The implied F/f is arousing and makes a reader hope to glimpse some hot F/f sex.  Rachel keeps it above board.  *drat*

 

Ms. Vitsky writes a tight story with a believable plot.  Well, except for the corporal punishment that many editors would love to have as an option.  The first person point of view didn’t work for me personally because I couldn’t connect with Spring.  While Ms. Vitsky does explain why Spring is the way she is, it did not work for me.  It’s a type of mentality I cannot condone which made this book a hard read for me at times.  For other readers, they may be more sympathetic to Spring’s dilemma.  The fears Spring hides is common across many.  The difference is, adults reach out for help and try to solve the problem.  Spring’s method it all too prevalent in modern first world countries.  This book is recommended to kinky readers who enjoy coddled bratty prima donnas in need of a reality check.

Review

cover_warlockspawn_sOne of the best debut books I’ve read in a long time.  Hopefully this is just is just a first in a series.  Ms. Quan is a dynamite erotic paranormal romance writer.  Being a pawn has never been so sexy.  Alia, a royal fae, willingly saves a warlock who can easily be the death of her.  The warlock in question, Duncan is an alpha male with Dom undertones.

 

The world Ms. Quan creates is marvelous.  The mix of magic and fae is enchanting.  The characters are rich and likeable.  What is admirable is even the “evil” villains in this story are not fully evil.  Ms. Quan shows a side to them which makes their psychotic behaviour understandable and at times makes a reader pity them.  The main characters are phenomenal.

 

Alia may be a sheltered priestess in some ways, yet she is no weak willed victim.  She’s soft, feminine and strong.  This mix is very sexy and appealing.  It’s easy to see why she captivates Duncan.  Duncan’s white knight syndrome is romantic.  He’s a sexually aggressive man who at heart is a softie.  He also happens to be a knight with dented armour.  What is most frustrating for him is his inability to protect and save Alia.  The way Ms. Quan partners this accomplished knight with a tough princess is pure bliss. It reminds me of one of my favourite reinterpretation of Cinderella.  Just like in Ever After, Duncan is always one step behind Alia when it comes to saving her.

 

The erotic scenes in this book are arousing.  Even the gang banging only turns up the heat.  My favourite scene is the public deflowering of Alia’s virginity.  If my first time was like this, I’d be in cloud nine.

 

This is a sweet story mixed with some gritty cruelty.  It’s a dichotomy which Ms. Quan blends together so well.  This book is highly recommend for paranormal lovers who want an extra kinky kick.

But then Jake Diggory crashes through her window for an unwelcome rescue, offering her shelter and a paid position at his establishment. She accepts, in spite of Jake”s fearsome reputation as “The Devil Diggory”, and soon sees another side to Jake–the firm but caring side of him which led his girls to name him “Daddy Diggs”.

Life at Daddy Diggs” is an entirely new experience for Cora. Jake has strict rules which he backs up with over the knee discipline, but he will not tolerate any mistreatment of his girls and he can go from playing beautiful music on a piano to defending them with his bare fists. The strangest thing of all, however, is the fact that every girl at Daddy Diggs” swears that Jake has never slept with her, or with any other woman for that matter, since his fiancée”s death back in Ireland fifteen years ago.

Cora attempts to emulate the other prostitutes at Daddy Diggs”, who enjoy making money, holding power over men and even the act of sex, but she still finds no pleasure in the company of men–until the day she inadvertently arouses the passion of The Devil Diggory.  His fierce lovemaking thaws some frozen part of her, but it seems Jake is only attracted to her because she resembles his dead fiancée. Confused by his new feelings for Cora and guilt over his broken vow of celibacy, Jake pushes Cora away. Can he come to terms with his past and claim Cora for his own, or will his grief keep them apart forever?

Trick Master’s Boys (Book One) by Patricia Logan – A promising start to a new series

logo

By Jo Smut-dickted

This Cinder-fella story is about Trick, a rent boy. When chance has him caught in the headlights of Phoenix neither one of them would have figured the end to their story. Phoenix, a once down on his luck Dom, spies Trick in the rain and picks him up. What starts out feeling like a “trick” to Trick soon ends up in confusion and, if he dares, hope. Phoenix is a Dom and works live for the camera”s for the DOMZ website – taping live BDSM play. The play is SSC (safe, sane, and consensual) and Trick is slowly introduced to what BDSM is and can be. He even gets new shoes *grin* from Phoenix. As the two get to know each other neither is sure where things are going – only that they want to take the journey. When Trick runs back to the streets can Phoenix find him and see if the shoe fits before midnight?

I”m a real softie for the Cinderella type stories and this plays right into my fantasies – except with a Fella not an Ella. Trick is marvelously naive, in spite of having been on the streets and Phoenix as the big, bad Dom with a heart of gold is sublime. If you read this as a fairy tale story where the Prince gets his man you will enjoy it greatly. It has great sex scenes and some wonderful introduction to BDSM play – although it does feel, at times, a little too much like BDSM 101: A Primer. Understandable but it does interrupt the flow of the story a little.

A promising start to a new series with a unique concept – instead of a BDSM Club (after all..aren”t we all just a wee bit tired of them? ) you get a BDSM Company online – to go with your rich Dom who is gorgeous. It”s a fresh take and something that makes sense considering the way BDSM has flourished in the last year or so. I am looking forward to the next Master”s Boy!

Rules of War by Sue Lyndon

By Jo SmutDickted

Since I love dystopian books this one was right up my alley. The fact it is set in my backyard (practically) is even better. Although I do have to say I had a moment”s pause in the beginning when the words “Downtown”, “Baltimore”, and “Safe Haven” were used in the same sentence. I have a, err, slightly different view point of downtown Baltimore – much better than it was, some areas are great, but I”m not sure safe haven applies LOL.

Anyway I loved Emma and John although Emma gave in way too quickly. She was pretty spunky in the beginning – since she was an Attorney that made perfect sense to me. I totally get lust that might make you do things you would not and rush into things, but it was just a bit too quick given the situation. John was just hot – and then hotter- and then really hot..you get the picture. A strong man who lived the honor he commanded from his men – He totally lit my fire!

I would have liked more about how this new society worked, how the settlement by the lake operated, and more about how John and Emma lived their daily lives. All of this would have given more world building. I didn”t really enjoy the plot point with the person from Emma”s past – it seemed a bit too convenient. I did love John”s language – I cracked up when he called her Princess because she was a little prissy and prickly. John can capture me anytime!

Magical Night – Hot Weekend Reading

p>Review by Kami

Magical Night

Magical Night by Karen Sullivan is told completely from the mind of Ms. Kay Maclachan with very little dialogue and is a wickedly naughty tale about a woman who is madly in love with her boyfriend Jim but afraid to let herself really feel love. She wants to tell him how she feels but something always prevents her from saying the words out loud more than likely because of her past trust issues. Jim is incredibly dominating and after he finds out that his girlfriend who is usually shy pulls quite the stunt at a dinner party. He admonishes her firmly under his breath and with a look promises her of things to come. Kay is incredibly aroused and even a little scared about his threat that she can quite tell if he is serious in a bad way or a good way. They leave the party and the story takes a slight BDSM turn with their power play. Kay receives a long spanking strictly for sexual purpose and is amazed to find herself so incredibly turned on by their encounter. It is a very nice mixture of intimate scenes, romance, and spice but I have to award only three stars.

I will state that Karen is an incredible writer who creates a masterpiece out of words instead of colors, but I could not really connect with Jim as there was very little talking on his end. We know that he is absolutely dominant, casino francais bonus and I do love those alpha males but I could not really feel what his motives were. We can see what Kay thinks of him, but it was very hard to get through the story without interaction.

I want to encourage Karen as you can literally feel every little thing that Kay is doing, and see what she is seeing just like you were living it, but I personally can not get into a story that does not have any action other than sexual play or a firm plot. If you want to do some hot weekend reading or sneak some alone time in the bathtub, this would be great for you. A strong three star review.

Marked by the Alpha – A Promising Debut Novella by Adaline Raine

logo

By Jo Smutdickted

The Alpha in the title is Mason – a hot, handsome werewolf. Dani is a dominant female who has been on her own so long she is scared to be part of a pack. Even worse she finds herself alternately wanting or denying a claim by Mason. Danger in the form of hunters is always close these days and Dani, as a lone wolf, presents quite a tempting target. When Mason teaches her a lesson on respect she can barely think straight with the conflicting needs, wants, and desires in her heart, body, and head. Will Mason claim what he wants or will it be too late when he makes a decision?

 

I”m always up for a hot, werewolf spanking romance. Overall the idea that there are dominant female”s in werewofl packs was a pretty fascinating concept. Dani definitely had a “I can do it so don”t bother me” attitude going. That attitude made her conflicting emotions over Mason a little more pronounced, albiet confusing, for both her and the reader. Dani”s friend Alisha seemed to be quite an entertaining secondary character – and certainly her story would be one I”d like to read. The story of a female who is scared to release feelings was clear here – and the reader ends up wishing Dani would just communicate and say what she wants out loud. The good thing is that ratchets up the frustration all around so it does keep you reading to see how she solves her dilema. The more action oriented scenes are not graphic but certainly the violence is at least stated so that was consistent with what I would think werewolf society would be like – no apology and animalistic. Props for that because paranormal creatures of the sparkly variety are just not my cuppa!

 

I would have enjoyed knowing a lot more about both Dani and Mason as Mason was a real enigma. I found it difficult to reconile this very domineering pack leader with his emotional outbursts which seemed to do the very thing that he was trying to protect his pack from and that was endanger them. The wildly vacilating emotions of both Dani and Mason needed a lot more fleshing out in order to propel readers into a space where they could relate significantly with either character. There is some awkward dialogue at times that made the interactions feel stilted and scripted – almost formal and it did pull me out of the story on a couple occasions. The spanking scenes were good but sort of perfunctory – without a lot of emotion behind them so I didn”t find them as engaging as they might have been. I would have liked more surrounding why Mason thought spanking was the way to teach her respect – as I was not clear on whether it was done to show submission, to show deference, or just to “shock” Dani. As a punishment, while it certainly gave her a slight amount of pain as a werewolf she apparently heals quickly, it didn”t really satisfy. I did like it however as a kinky sex act which she seemed to enjoy greatly – that definitely did it for me.

 

Overall there is promise in this debut novella – a little more explanation (past, present, culture, pack dynamics) would have greatly enhanced this one so the reader feels confident in this world and understands it and the people who inhabit it.
