Book review - Enticement by Madelynne Ellis - 4.5 stars

Enticement by Madelynne Ellis
M/M/F ménage romance 
4.5/5 stars 


Blurb 

Secrets, kinks and unfinished business…

Evie’s world turns upside down when she finds a naked stranger in her shower with mysterious ties to her boyfriend’s past. She and Ross have never kept secrets, until now.

Taking risks isn’t Ross’s style – not anymore – but he’s never been able to say no to Kit. Memories of their wild adventures still spice up his sexual fantasies – fantasies that could cost him Evie’s love, if she knew.

Meanwhile, bad boy Kit knows he’s playing fast and loose with Ross and Evie’s relationship, but he’s convinced the risk is worth it. As their lives become entangled, and past mysteries resurface and grow legs in their sleepy rural community, their loyalties to one another are put to the test. Can three people ever form a stable relationship, especially if they’re not all telling the truth? 


Review 
4.5 stars 

Enticement is a steamy M/M/F ménage romance with a fabulous storyline and great characters. I never quite knew where the storyline was going, it was unpredictable with twists and turns that kept me on the edge of my seat. I read a lot of ménage romance books and they sometimes blur together as they often follow the same formula, but Enticement stood out from the crowd. Kit, Ross and Evie's relationship wasn't easy sailing - there were plenty of misunderstandings, secrets and jealousy that made the relationship feel realistic.

As I've come to expect from this author, the writing was great and felt effortless. I've read a few of Madelynne Ellis' books now, and this one is definitely my favourite. Her characters are unique, well rounded and you can relate to them and their lives. 

Kit was a fascinating, larger than life character - and even when I didn't agree with his actions, I couldn't help liking him. The chemistry between all three main characters was electric, they were so hot together!  I also enjoyed the element of mystery regarding Ross and Kit's past, and I liked the way that the author kept Evie and the reader guessing about this.  Enticement is a thoroughly satisfying story that receives four and a half stars.


I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for a honest review.

Blurb 

Karma, baby. We all have to face this bitch at one time or another.  Angelique was so wrapped up in trying to get the biggest piece of Dante’s heart that she forgot that her submissives need her love and guidance. Dante has evolved as a Master, but not as a husband. When Angelique walks away from him, he realizes he may just lose the woman who is his other half. 

Master Griffin has lashed out at everyone that tries to hurt him or his. He has schemed and plotted to run this community. Yet, when he tries to take on Master Drake he comes up against an opponent he can’t beat. 

Master Mato had nothing but respect for Master Griffin until he is given a submissive named Tao from Master Drake. Drake’s only concern is for Tao’s happiness and he believes she will find it with

Mato, yet he doesn’t force his will on her, he leaves it for her to decide. Mato is forced to see Griffin in a different light because of Drake’s actions. 
Who will be the lucky ones and walk away unscathed from Karma’s wrath?

Excerpt 

“Say my name,” he growled as he pulled her hair, forcing her to arch back as he rammed his cock into her from behind. “Say it!” 
“Griffin,” Angelique said softly.
“Louder.” He wrapped his arm around her and lowered his hand to her pussy. He rubbed her clit at the same speed he drove his cock into her. He gave her hair an extra hard yank.
“Griffin!” she cried out. Her orgasm hit her with such force that nothing mattered at this moment. “Griffin!” she howled. 
She felt him holder her closer as he came. She had spent the last couple of days losing herself in Griffin’s touch. All the while she thought about Dante. He branded that bitch submissive of his…hell she could take if he branded just Bazil…but not Lara. 
“You can run home to Dante now, woman.” Griffin released her as he leaned back against the headboard. 
“I’m not running anywhere.” She turned and looked at him. The way he looked at her should infuriate her, but there was something sexy about his arrogance.
“Oh come on, you know you want to tell him all about this.” 
“No, because that is what you want me to do.” She climbed out of bed and grabbed her black silk robe. She almost smiled hearing Griffin chuckle. “I won’t let you hurt Dante.” 
“Hurt him. How can I hurt him?” 
“He finds out you are fucking me and he will come over here and kick your ass, then you will have your gowns hurt him.”
“Interesting.” Griffin climbed out of bed and pulled on his jeans. 
“What is interesting?”
“If you don’t plan on running and telling your husband about our little tryst, then why are you here?”
“Distraction.” 
“But why me? Shit, you could have fucked Drake or any of those other Masters.” 
“You are toying with me. I can see it in your eyes.” 
Griffin just slowly smiled. “You are welcomed to stay as long as you like, woman. You are an interesting fuck.” 
“So are you. But if I stay I must bring my other sweets here.” 
“Sweets?”
“I do have other male submissives besides Raven.” 
“How much more?”
“Two at the moment. The others I let go. Yves and Marcus, I can’t leave them to stay at my castle all alone.” 
“If they hurt Liam…” 
“No one is going to touch your beautiful male unless I tell them it’s alright to do so.” 
“Then I will have a couple of guests rooms prepared for them. I’m intrigued to see you with all three of your males. But tell me something. Why does Raven look so much like Dante?”
“What does it matter?”
“Eros bared a resemblance to Dante as well. It matters because I’m curious to know the why of it.” 
“Raven was my first real submissive…” Angelique sat on the bed. “Dante acquired him for me. He knew how much I would miss him…so he found a male who looked a lot like him. Eros was for the same reason.” 
“Do Yves and Marcus look like Dante as well?”
“No.”
“Raven is exquisite by his own merits. It is unfortunate that he bares such a resemblance to your husband.” 
“What do you mean by that?” 
“Do you love Raven for himself or because of who he reminds you of.” 
“I suppose the same question could be ask of you. Dimitri looks like your trainer Lennox.” 
“Do not even think to tread on that ground, woman.” 
“Then don’t question my love for Raven. He is not Dante nor would I ever want him to be. I love him for who he is.” 
“I would hope so. He is your favorite.”
“I’m going to arrange for Yves and Marcus to fly out here. They are my submissives not yours.” 
“You are in my home, woman.” 
“I will make sure they show you the utmost respect.” Angelique left the room. She had to get away from Griffin for a moment. She hurried to her room. Griffin had the main guest room for her use, and Raven always stayed with her. She went inside and saw Raven sitting on the bed. 
“Are you alright, Mistress?” Raven said. 
Angelique walked over to him and ran her fingers through his short dark hair. She looked deeply into his dark eyes. No, he wasn’t Dante. The way he looked at her…
“Mistress?”
“You know I love you right?”
“Yes. And I love you, Mistress.”

Web Master Trilogy
Author: Normandie Alleman
Genre: Contemporary Romance



An online connection.
Masked by anonymity.
No cameras. No pictures.
Curiosity ignited to intrigue.

I thought I knew what I was getting into, but had no idea how far we would go...

My intention was to test the waters, dip my toe in the wading pool. Instead I surrendered to the world of seduction and submission as he submerged me--body, mind, and soul--into an ocean of eroticism.

Emails, texts, and hidden identities, were one thing. But now, coming face-to-face with the mystery man, the star of my fantasies, both terrifies and completely thrills me. If all goes according to plan, he will intensify the exquisite bond we share by transporting me to that glorious intersection between agony and ecstasy. If not, everything we've built will come crashing down around us, destroying my dreams in the process.

Either way, there is no going back. Because I want more. Much more.
He always says, "For every ounce of pleasure, a price must be paid."

And I am going to pay ...

Excerpt

This would be the first meeting where I would see my lover face-to-face.

He’d left strict instructions for me to sit at the table he reserved for us. He requested I sit with my back to the entrance. This tricky move on his part allowed no way for me to see him as he entered. If his intention was to control and torture me, it was working. A loose strand of hair tickled my cheek, so I tucked it behind my ear.

I watched for the waiter, again wanting that drink, but as much as I hated being outside my comfort zone, I loved the naughty, decadent feeling I got from doing something simply because my Master told me to. When I submitted to his demands, I stepped outside my safe little world, the one where my ex-husband ignored me for years, where I felt inconsequential. With him I wasn’t invisible. He relied on me.

Sure, it was for things of a sexual nature, but to me, that was something, and I felt fulfilled for the first time in ages.

A few months ago, when I’d been supremely pissed at my cheating husband, I went online. I admit it, I’d been looking for trouble, which was mind-numbingly easy to find. I hadn’t intended to find a darker side of myself with needs that shocked me. I’d never meant to find someone. I’d merely been looking, searching—for what, I wasn’t sure.

What I did find was a whole new world of dominance and submission, self-inflicted pain as well as pleasure, and sexual satisfaction with a stranger. A man who reached out and touched me in corners of my soul I hadn’t known existed. We spoke every day, I performed sex acts upon myself at his command, and sent him reports on the intimate and sometimes humiliating tasks he gave me.

I was his submissive, and he was my Master, and every aspect of our relationship took place over the internet. I addressed him as “Sir,” but in our chats he went by the moniker, “MC.” We communicated via Skype, email, chats, and the occasional phone call, never seeing one another. That is, until today.

I had insisted we not use cameras, even though he implored me to do webcam “sessions.” My privacy was of the utmost importance to me, so I always refused. I’m a kindergarten teacher and couldn’t take the risk of being videotaped. So the only notion I have of what my Master looks like is a product of my imagination.

But today he flew to Houston to meet me in person. To have a real “play date.” In the flesh. A chill ran across my skin, leaving a trail of goosebumps in its wake.

Today I would finally meet the man who dominated me for the past few months. My stomach roiled with anticipation. What would he look like? Would it matter? Of course whatever he looked like, he wouldn’t be the “Master” I’d daydreamed about.

Things never worked that way. It would be like conjuring an image for the hero in a book. When a movie is made, the actor never matches the character in your head. It was always a disappointment.

I’d tried to prepare myself for that from the beginning. I never pictured MC to be a handsome movie star. Instead, I envisioned him as rather average, with salt-and-pepper hair and kind features. For some reason I pictured him wearing glasses, and possibly a beard.

In any case, it wasn’t his physical appearance that captivated me. MC awakened a primal response in me. He exposed my mind to a world in which I could be open about my sexual desires. A world where the wanton girl inside me was encouraged to come out and play, rather than squelched and pushed into a back closet where she had always lived. He controlled my sexuality, sensing my deepest, darkest needs. And it didn’t hurt that he made me feel cared for and cherished at a time when I desperately needed that.

My phone showed it was 5:12. Any minute now… The wait had been both excruciating and delicious at the same time—a perfect reflection of our relationship, a testimony to both pain and pleasure.

“Close your eyes, my pet.” The familiar voice was a sound I’d come to crave, and hearing it sent shivers of anticipation dancing down my spine. Suddenly, I wanted to freeze that moment in time, to stop while things were still beautiful between us, before reality could mar the fantasy…

Release blitz - Obsession by Ann Mayburn

obsession

obsession5

                                                   Synopsis 

This is a STANDALONE dark(ish) erotic romance with insta-obsession between two damaged soulmates(no cheating-HEA-no cliffhanger) 

Hannah All my life, I've only wanted one thing: someone to love me and someone who will let me love them in return. This seems like a simple request, but I was born to parents who wished I had died of childhood leukemia, instead of my younger sister, and who have ignored me no matter how much I've tried to please them. I'm starved for affection, addicted to the feeling when someone cares about me, which has led to a love life filled with either boys I've scared off, or men all too eager to take advantage of me. I thought I would never find a man who could feed my craving for constant attention--and then I met Leo. He fills the void inside of me, haunts my dreams, and does things to me in bed that are so good, they're probably illegal. I can only pray I don't scare him off once he figures out just how needy I really am. 

Leo There are very few people in this world I've ever been able to form an emotional attachment to, but the moment I saw Hannah, I knew she was mine. We were bound together by fate, our paths crossing first as children, then as adults, each time marking me. She doesn't know it but I've been watching her for a year now, studying her, stacking the deck so when I do make my move, there's no way she'll ever escape me. But my world is a harsh, cruel place, and the cartel I work for demands absolute loyalty and trust...a loyalty Hannah has yet to earn in the dangerous eyes of my employers. There is only one way to ensure Hannah's absolute devotion, and I hope that she doesn't hate me forever when she finds out that not only have I brainwashed her into loving me, but that I don't feel an ounce of guilt about doing it. She's mine, only mine, and I'm keeping her forever. 

Warning: This story features a rough and demanding Dom who's completely devoted to bringing his baby girl pleasure through such unconventional means as spanking, mild BDSM, D/S, roleplaying, and various other forms of wicked kinkery.

Review 

Review is for both book 1 and book 2.

It's hard to believe that The Southern Gentleman books are this author's debut novels because they are so damn good! She had me hooked right from the start with fabulous characters, slick dialogue and an intriguing storyline. I found Ms Reese's writing style very easy to read and the story was perfectly paced. I'm just glad that both books are out now as after the unexpected, scandalous ending of book one, Protective Instinct, I would have hated having to wait for the next part of Lola and Nolan's story. I dived straight into book two, True Consequences, and it proved to be even better than the first book!

Lola Randall's mother is in the running to become President of the United States of America, and Lola is finding the media attention overwhelming. She also needs a break from her overbearing parents so she ditches her security and the campaign. Nolan Jackson is a professional 'fixer' and is tasked with finding Lola and bringing her back to her parents and the presidential campaign before the press find out she's gone AWOL. Nolan is a real alpha male and his chemistry with young, innocent Lola is explosive. Can Nolan keep Lola safe from political enemies who will do anything to keep her mother out of the White House? And can he win Lola's heart?

I absolutely loved this book, there were so many layers to the story and they were woven together perfectly. The balance of suspense storyline to romance storyline was just right in my opinion and both were equally as compelling. Lola was very naive and sheltered and I must admit I got a little frustrated with her at times, but I still really liked her. She was the ideal match for jaded Nolan, they were great together. I'm really looking forward to reading more of this author's work in the future, as these books are awesome. The Southern Gentleman books one and two both receive five big, sparkling stars!


I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for a honest review.
