Loving Sadem By Gemma Rice

         25605286

** received for honest review**

Once again we have a love hate relationship with this second’s book, there were highs and there were lows.

We still have the main characters….

Holly the Goth

Sean the sadist

Jared the Goth rock god

Deacon the “norm”

Larry the “norm” bouncer/driver

Marsha the barmaid

June the bff

We also have some band members that come into play and strike which is Sean bff.

Holly can’t make her mind if she wants Jared or Sean she loves them both but both for different reasons.

She loves Sean for his firm demanding Dom ways, the way he keeps her safe, the way he cares for her, the way he looks after her.

She loves Jared because she thinks there from the same make, both dark, disturbed, scared, broken and they love to bleed. Their sex is rough, raw, hot but she doesn’t feel completely safe with him his a bit to random for her, lives life on the edge and flips in a matter of seconds he can also be very careless and reckless and sometimes has no regard for her safety.

Whereas Sean is calculated there is a purpose for everything he does there’s a reason even though she may not see it. Holly being Holly she walks around in a bubble and doesn’t open her eyes to the real world and she is very naive sometimes but has a heart of gold even though when she fucks up its epic!!

There are once again lots of moving parts Sean and Jared break her many times where her head is left spinning and she doesn’t know right from wrong.

Sean head fucks her (and us) with his games that he plays but everything is calculated.

Jared and Sean had a turmoiled relationship they hate each other everything is a competition even Holly but then it changes.

Holly shows Sean the light and the importance of family while Sean opens her eyes to the BDSM world and let’s just say that didn’t go down.

Shit hit the fan and Holly flees to her safe place her bff deacon.

At the end we see Holly happy but who does she end up with?

Who wins her heart overall?

Can Jared the Goth rock god hold onto her Does the sadist get his way and win her over?

There were a few parts in this book where we wanted to through our kindle and there are parts where we just thought holy shit you are a whore but some parts we wanted to cry right alongside Holly cause we could see the game Sean was playing.

The only thing that we thought was a bit excessive was the sex between Sean and Holly it sort of brought a whole new meaning to fuck like rabbits!! (A saying we say in Australia) there was a shit load of sex but other than that it was another good book by Gemma Rice and still leaves our head spinning!

Release Blitz – Alexandr’s Cherished Submissive By Ann Mayburn

button synopsis

7 years ago

From the moment Alexandr Novikov met the young auburn haired woman bartending at her uncle’s pub in Ireland, he’d been fascinated by her delicate beauty and fiery spirit. Unfortunately, he is in no position to offer her the kind of safe, normal life she deserves so he attempts to put her from his mind for her own good. Something easier said then done when a deal is struck between the Novikov Bratva and the Irish Cleary Gang, an arrangement that includes Alex and his men being on twenty-four hour bodyguard duty with the object of his forbidden desires.

Jessica Venture came to Dublin to spend some time bonding with her birth mother’s family, a connection she desperately needs after losing her adoptive parents within a year of each other back in the States. The last thing she expected was to fall in love with a handsome, mysterious, and sometimes scary man who was well known for his sexual appetite, but rejected her attempts to seduce him.

There are outside forces that will do anything to keep them apart, and Jessica will have to make a desperate choice that will change their lives forever.

Warning: There is light bondage, domestic discipline, spanking, and a F/F scene that is a voyeuristic Doms delight.

Author’s Note: This is part One of Two for Alex and Jessica’s story. In Alexandr’s Cherished Submissive we get a look into the past and the events that shaped Alex and Jessica into the people they are today. Part Two, Alexandr’s Reluctant Submissive, is present day on, and the expected release date is early Fall 2015.

button About the author

With over forty published books, Ann is Queen of the Castle to her husband and three sons in the mountains of West Virginia. In her past lives she’s been an Import Broker, a Communications Specialist, a US Navy Civilian Contractor, a Bartender/Waitress, and an actor at the Michigan Renaissance Festival. She also spent a summer touring with the Grateful Dead-though she will deny to her children that it ever happened.

From a young Ann has had a love affair with books would read everything she could get her hands on. As Ann grew older, and her hormones kicked in, she discovered bodice ripping Fabio-esque romance novels. They were great at first, but she soon grew tired of the endless stories with a big wonderful emotional buildup to really short and crappy sex. Never a big fan of purple prose, throbbing spears of fleshy pleasure and wet honey pots make her giggle, she sought out books that gave the sex scenes in the story just as much detail and plot as everything else-without using cringe worthy euphemisms. This led her to the wonderful world of Erotic Romance, and she’s never looked back.

Now Ann spends her days trying to tune out cartoons playing in the background to get into her ‘sexy space’ and has accepted that her Muse has a severe case of ADD.

Release Day Blitz – Betrayal (Obsession #2) – S.M. Phillips

“I gave you one chance, Anna. A chance to run and never look back. That’s all you had to do. Run and keep your goddamn head down, yet here we are and it’s not just you in the firing line anymore. You better pray that nothing bad happens to my brother, because this time I’ll be taking you down with me.”

Running was the only option that Anna Jameson was given. To up and leave everything that she had ever known and put it all behind her. That was the toughest decision that she’d ever made, and she made it… But was it all worth it?

As soon as her anxiety and fear began to slowly ebb away, she could see a faint light at the end of the dark and horrific tunnel that she had found herself in… That light was the dark, sexy and demanding Jensen Blake. A man who played on her every emotion and a man who she swore she would avoid at all costs.

Nobody can run forever and the past is about to catch up with her. With nowhere to run and nowhere to hide, how many more people will suffer at the hand of Anna’s hidden past?

Danger, fear and betrayal decide to make an unwelcome appearance and it looks like they’re about to become her new best friends.

Book: Eternal Affairs

Author: Olivia Hayes

Genre: Erotic Romance

Synopsis

True love. Meaningful friendships. Two things that don’t come easily and appear when least expected.

Privileged and perpetually single Lexie Donovan could totally do without the single part, but every guy she meets is taken or uninterested. It’s probably for the best since she’s buried under planning the wedding event of the year. But when Lexie invites three women to move into her house, a chain of events is set in motion that brings her a love that will change her life forever.

Beth Garrett has finally made a future for herself, despite her dark past, but she keeps most people at arm’s length, especially men.  When she agrees to move in with a girl she barely knows, she doesn’t expect to find a family, friends, or the tall, sexy bad boy who will become the center of her world.

Girl next door Remington Savage is keeping a huge secret from everyone, even her best friend Lexie, but she’s figured out a way to talk about it without divulging the truth. What she doesn’t know is that the whole world is about to find out exactly what she’s been hiding, in the most incredible way.

After her friend, Beth, offers her the opportunity of a lifetime, Kate Parker has everything she wants, except a man to share her life with. Her brain wants to choose the one who appears to be the perfect package, but her heart yearns for the man who warms her bed and seems to only want one thing from her.

For these four women sharing a house will mean more than any of them could have planned for. Their lives will intersect in ways they never imagined; through love, friendship and heartbreak. Forming bonds that will last forever.

Loving Misery

By Gemma Rice

** received for honest review**

I don’t think we have ever been stumped so much before with writing a review as we have with this one. We loved it and hated it. We wanted to wrap them up and Snuggle them but we also wanted to throat punch them.

There a few characters so stay with us as we introduce them all…..

Holly is a 28 year old barmaid at Sadem she is also a Goth, she has a best friend June who is her family she also has her friend she works with Marsha and then bouncer Larry which is Marsha’s boyfriend.

Then we have Deacon who is the owner of the gym and also fills in as a bouncer at Sadem and is Larry’s best friend. He seems to be the “normal” one (whatever normal is).

Then we have Sean who is the owner of Sadem and is a sadist himself and loves to head fuck Holly (and us to in the book) his powerful and dangerous.

Jared Jones is a lead singer of a Goth band. Sexy as sin and falls for Holly the moment there eyes lock.

Sean has been try to get Holly as his sub for a long time but she doesn’t want to be his sub she doesn’t understand the lifestyle and doesn’t think it’s for her but little does she realize she is almost there.

On her birthday Sean gives her a bracelet that she thinks is a friendship bracelet but Sean does it to collar her so that Jared stays away from her little does he know that Jared sees it and cuts it off her and then replaces it with a love bracelet that he buys her…… Now Keep in mind these bracelets aren’t your everyday bracelet you can’t just take them off, each one has a special little screw driver to get it off.

So back to the story…..

Jared has her he thinks…..

Sean has her he thinks…..

Deacon wants her…..

Who does holly want??

She fucks Jared.

She fucks deacon.

Sean drugs her and hand fucks her to get her off several times and another time his mouth…..

So who does Holly go for?

She is confused by the whole 3 of them.

She rules Deacon Out cause his to normal but wanted him as fuck buddy.

She wants what Sean can give her but she loves Jared.

So who does she end up with?

That you will have to read to find out!

As we said we loved and hated this book there were some parts that were a bit confusing some parts we read and we’re thinking wtf and wtf is wrong with you!

We did go on a journey with these character there is nothing loving and romantic hearts and roses stuff this is about twisted, hot, lusty, consensual, unconsensual, mind blowing fucked up broken fucking!!

So if that’s what you like go hard cause this book is for you!

Well done Gemma Rice on we think a good book.

Release Date: August 31st 2015
Resolute. Firm. Unwavering

That was my love for him.

Steadfast for as long as I can remember.



As my best friend’s brother, he ignored me before noticing me. He protected me, bought me my first beer, but eventually became my undoing. 



There was a time I would have died to get him to notice me, now I’d do anything to forget him. 

I’m not the one who can tame him, and he’s not the guy who will change for me.

This isn’t a story about falling in love, this is a story about falling out of love.

Unrequited love. 

And finding the strength to stand up for myself.

Here’s to the steadfast.



*This is an standalone story that crosses years from YA into NA genre, due to HEAVY subject matter this book is for ages 16 and up. This is not your typical love story.*

Excerpt:

We don’t have drinks this time so instead I raise my hand
for a majestic fist bump. I’m not sure what to wish/salute to this time. Over
the weeks, we’ve gone through everything. Well, almost everything.
“To love,” I say, knocking my knuckles against his.
“To infatuation,” he corrects, fist bumping me again.
“No, to the steadfast.”
Our eyes connect. Both of us realizing how cruel life can
be, how tempting it is to get swept away in the people that pay attention to us.
