Title: Mistress Comes First

Length:   18 Pages

Overview

When Levi wears his collar, the rest of the world gets a little fuzzy around the edges.

For their six month anniversary, Levi gives his girlfriend, Raleigh, a key to his apartment. Since then, she’s left her soap in his shower and some extra clothes in the back of his dresser. She also added one more item, but it’s one Levi wears…his collar.

Ever since their BDSM lifestyle started, Levi has found a new purpose: pleasing his Mistress. She always took care of him, but most importantly, she always showed him exactly how to please her. 

One night, Raleigh gives her submissive a task before coming home with a treat.

My Thoughts

I enjoy a good BDSM story, especially when the dominant is a Woman, so you can only imagine why i was drawn to this novella initially. We have Raleigh who’s the Mistress in this story – the one who calls all the shots, really driving the story forward. Levi is her pet, and the one who’s completely submissive to her every wish or desire.

Levi understood his part to play in their relationship and knew that there were repercussions if he didn’t obey her requests. The punishments at times were even better than getting what he was originally supposed to receive, but that’s not always the point of these encounters now is it?

To those who really are embedded and knowledgeable of the BDSM lifestyle, there area few tokens that we are grounded in here. The titles, and the notion that Raleigh requires Levi to endear her a certain way. That’s a means of showing respect. Then there’s the notion that he wears a collar for her. That’s not always a requirement in these D/s relationships, but it’s a nice way to show commitment, and since they’ve been together for a while now, it’s a way of showing how she feels about him, even when she won’t move in with Levi after being asked many many times.

It’s a sweet tease into the lifestyle, even though it’s not really getting into the depth and crux of what the lifestyle truly is. We see that it’s about control more than the experience of play which is usually how these stories go within the genre, but i’d imagine that if this were a full length story, we would get there. There’s one thing though that throws me a bit – it’s typically known and understood that the sub is the one with all the control, and that a good dominant knows that giving pleasure and ensuring the submissive happiness is the most important thing. I’ll chalk it up to Levi seeming to be new to the lifestyle and that’s why in his head he feels that she’s got all the control.

All in all, a sweet BDSM story – which is unique in a genre that i never think of as sweet.

On that note – it’s GIVEAWAY time again! Like this post and enter here for a chance to win your own copy! Good luck!

Review: Shadow Me (Shatter Me #4.5) by Tahereh Mafi

Title: Shadow Me
Author:  Tahereh Mafi
Publisher/Year:  Harper Collins 3/5/19
Length:   55 Pages
Series:  Shatter Me #4.5

Overview

Juliette is still reeling from Warner’s betrayal, and Kenji is trying to balance his friendship with her with his responsibilities as a leader of the resistance against the Reestablishment. Things get even more interesting when an unexpected person from Omega Point’s past surfaces.

The ending of Restore Me left readers gasping, and this novella full of Kenji’s signature sass and big heart is the perfect story to tide fans over until Defy Me, the shocking fifth book in the Shatter Me series, hits shelves in April 2019.

My Thoughts

Every time we get a new installment, i’m reminded that it’s been a while since the previous one, and while I hate being in limbo and a bit fuzzy on details, I don’t quite have it in me to re-read everything to get fully back up to speed. So, in this novella, where we are is a bit out of sync in my mind but that’s ok. Ms Mafi does a fantastic job of grounding us in the moment in time where the world has completely turned itself upside down.

This time around we get a snippet about Kenji – what’s going on in his head personally and what he’s being left to clean up in reality. There’s always been this humor about him, the ability to make situations less dramatic, but what we find out here is that there’s even more drama and depth than we ever knew.

Juliette continues to be in such a precarious position, and Kenji takes so much of that weight on his own shoulders because he’s been closest to her for the longest time, and because it’s his nature to be overly compassionate. We see that even more so in this book, and we hear his internal monologue giving us bits of the history there to understand even more.

We really get the chance to see another side of him – the side that perhaps is covered up by all the humor that he puts out in the world. The jealous side – the part of him that wishes that he could have what everyone else seems to have – even if he has to witness first hand the pain that comes along with finding his perfect person.

This is a bit of a snack to hold us over until Defy Me comes out in about 2 weeks, we find ourselves with Kenji trying to save Juliette from the after effects of the Symposium, and Juliette then going missing – Nazeerah becoming even more a mystery and all hell breaking loose….All of this is both too much and not enough to keep the chaos on my brain at bay. I need to see what happens, who’s still alive and what impact this is going to have on the world as they know it. Enjoy!

Review: Imposters (Imposters #1) by Scott Westerfeld

Title: Imposters
Author:  Scott Westerfeld
Publisher/Year:  Scholastic 9/11/18
Length:   289 Pages
Series:  Imposters #1

Overview

Deception. Risk. Betrayal. Redemption. Master storyteller Scott Westerfeld is at the top of his game, and back to his most famous realm. A New York Times bestseller.

Frey and Rafi are inseparable . . . two edges of the same knife. But only one of them is ever seen in public.

Frey is Rafi’s twin sister-and her body double. Their powerful father has many enemies, and the world has grown dangerous as the old order falls apart. So while Rafi was raised to be the perfect daughter, Frey has been taught to kill. Her only purpose is to protect her sister, to sacrifice herself for Rafi if she must. 

When her father sends Frey in Rafi’s place as collateral in a precarious deal, she becomes the perfect impostor. But Col, the son of a rival leader, is getting close enough to spot the killer inside her . . . . 

My Thoughts

Seeing the cover of this story brings me back to a great time when I read the series that preceded this one – The Uglies. That story was ahead of it’s time with all the body mods that were possible, the reason for it, the throwback to Rusties society (which is really our time), and now we’re sort of back in it again.

Tally Youngblood was the main character in that series -a girl who did everything that she could to change how people thought about themselves and the world. She started a rebellion, and now we’re back in a time when people are primed for another rebellion, and could use her reappearance but when that doesn’t seem likely, they use her spirit.

As the summary says, Rafia and Frey are twins, half an hour apart, but worlds apart in reality. Rafia is the favorite, the one who’s meant to be the ruler and Frey is the bodyguard and the throw away. Of course though, if we haven’t learned anything in reading these types of stories – it’s always the Throw Away that has the most potential. And that’s where this story takes us.

Frey is traded to a neighboring ruling family as collateral so their father can get a hold of metal which he so desperately wants. The intention is that Frey will impersonate Rafia while she’s there so that he can get what he wants and if something goes wrong, well, then he’s only lost the spare. not the heir.

Giving Frey this kind of freedom, even though she’s essentially a prisoner, well, it’s opening her world up more than anyone could have hoped. She befriends the eldest son to the ruling family and building more than just a close friendship with him. But if Rafia isn’t what she seems, then what’s to say that Col is what he seems?

From the beginning, we’re pulled into this story from an emotional string, and then we’re kept engaged with the hope that these teens can make the world a better place. Our main characters know that how their parents rule and have raised them isn’t necessarily the best way and when they come to terms that they can be powerful as well, in a positive way, then the story explodes.

In addition to Frey and Rafia, and Col even, we have a few additional characters that truly lend good shape to the story. There’s Zura who’s a Special (if you read the other series, you would know that Specials have been modified to be military grade – stronger, faster, smarter etc). She’s proven to be incredibly helpful and perhaps one of the last remaining Victorian House Guard Specials to survive. There’s also Teo who is Col’s younger brother and a boy who’s got an interesting role in the story that we don’t fully know yet. He’s at a private boarding school in Europe when all hell breaks loose and then he goes missing and we can’t wait to see how that plays out. There’s also Col’s friend Yandre who seems to have family connections to the Rebels and we can only guess that the Rebels will be necessary (and perhaps will spawn a pop up by Tally).

What our author does well yet again is paint a picture on how societies truly divided themselves once the Rusties went away and new tech became the norm. People became far more reliant on newer and better technology to make things not only beautiful, but automated and controlled by AI etc. When that happens, as we saw in the Uglies series, people become far too reliant on things outside of themselves and society crumbles.

We go on a roller coaster with this story. Feeling heartbroken for the sisters when they are torn apart, feeling hope for Frey because she gets a chance to be someone else, and then dealing with angst and anxiety when a war breaks out and friends and loved ones are killed or torn apart. We’re left in a very precarious place at the end of this story – where one sister is forced to make a decision that can truly ruin the other one, where enemies are capturing people left and right and people are still missing. there’s almost no closure at the end of this first installment to this spin off series and that’s something that i both love and hate because i need to know more – NOW. So, on that note, i’m going to stalk Mr Westerfeld’s page to find out when the 2nd book is coming out and i’ll be back later! Enjoy!

Review: Dry by Neal Shusterman

Title: Dry
Author:  Neal Shusterman
Publisher/Year:  Simon & Shuster Publishing 11/23/18
Length:   400 Pages

Overview

When the California drought escalates to catastrophic proportions, one teen is forced to make life and death decisions for her family in this harrowing story of survival from New York Times bestselling author Neal Shusterman and Jarrod Shusterman.

The drought—or the Tap-Out, as everyone calls it—has been going on for a while now. Everyone’s lives have become an endless list of don’ts: don’t water the lawn, don’t fill up your pool, don’t take long showers.

Until the taps run dry.

Suddenly, Alyssa’s quiet suburban street spirals into a warzone of desperation; neighbors and families turned against each other on the hunt for water. And when her parents don’t return and her life—and the life of her brother—is threatened, Alyssa has to make impossible choices if she’s going to survive.

My Thoughts

I needed a change of pace for a bit and we all know that i’m a huge fan of dystopia, post-apocolyptic etc. so this fell right into my sweet spot. For those of you who follow what i’m reading on Goodreads, you’ll see that this has taken me FAR too long to read and that’s not a result of the book itself, but just that i haven’t been able to focus. This week though, i turned the corner and really invested my time in reading this story and i’m happy that i did.

It’s interesting how reading stories like this hit so close to home, especially since in this case especially it’s based on a scenario that’s so real and quite likely to happen if we don’t do something about consumption management now.

We find ourselves in Southern California, where the water/drought situation is so bad that neighboring states are now closing off waterways to Cali because those states are desperate as well. No one truly knows what the impact of all this will be but we quickly learn that water really is the one thing that keeps people sane and alive and without it, it’s an eat or be eaten mentality for society.

The nice way that this story is written is that we have chapters that alternate through our character’s POVs. not just two main characters, but essentially everyone that we meet. I personally enjoyed this because this is a situation that impacts different people in unique ways and seeing how it can either tear people apart or bring them together based on what they are living and feeling brings much more depth to the story.

Add to that, a variety of adjacent scenes that are happening throughout the similar surrounding areas for people who aren’t connected to our mains, and we get a really detailed and complex picture of what’s going on.

I really enjoyed how our main characters are all teens and maybe younger than teens, and even though they are faced with a situation that typically forces them to grow up quickly, they still remain acting as ‘kids’. We see some take leader roles etc, but they still act, talk and seem like kids and that’s refreshing. There are a few who take on personas that are not themselves and that comes to bite them in the end, but i think that it’s all realistic and natural.

There’s a great flow to this story – we see the initial shock and disbelief to what’s happening in the state, even though everyone knew that water was running scarce and that rationing wasn’t working. I feel like if/when this happens in reality, the exact same reactions will happen and things will sadly play out in a similar way. No one believes that things like this will happen to them, and no one prepares. (except for that one weird family down the street).

There are moments when we have hope – knowing that there is someone with survival skills around, knowing that there’s a Plan B to keep us moving towards. then there are moments of dispair when parents go missing, when the adults rebel and when they take for granted the fact that kids are more innocent and can just get things done. There’s the arc of fear and desperation when disease becomes widespread, when government doesn’t help, when hope is lost because a series of events happen to throw them off course.

The roller coaster in this story is wild and i think that if you take the time to enjoy this story – you’ll agree with that notion. I don’t know that i loved the way that this story ended – i think that it did part of the plot justice but then it did a bit of a disservice when the closure in some places seemed too easy. That’s just me though – i’m cynical and jaded and sometimes wish that things couldn’t all be wrapped in a pretty bow.

On that note – i really enjoyed this book and i’m glad that i finally just put my head down to finish it. well worth it. Enjoy!

Review & Giveaway: See Me After Class by Ava Sterling

Title: See Me After Class
Author:  Ava Sterling
Publisher/Year:  Red Lace Publishing 6/26/17
Length:   20 Pages

Overview

Kristin has played a part all her life.

She’s dated guys off and on, but without any success. They just don’t do much for her. They’re messy and rough. She thinks that is her destiny, until she meets Professor Carolyn Bannister.

Carolyn is the director for Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, busy sorting through auditions at her university’s theater department. When Kristin finishes her audition, Carolyn gives her the part before the rest of the students have their chance. Kristin matches the part perfectly of someone who has held in a secret desire for someone.

It isn’t long after Kristin receives the part that she wonders if she’ll get some one-on-one time with Professor Bannister to rehearse her part…and perhaps practice a few other things for the first time in the privacy of a backstage changing room.

My Thoughts

I”m always a fan of a story with a power difference, where one person comes off as though they have the upper hand because of age, experience, profession etc, and then we quickly find that the script is flipped and it’s really the other person who holds all the cards. Seeing though as this is a novella, i’m going to suspend that expectation and see hwo this plays out.

I’m going to first thank our lovely author Ava Sterling once again for giving me access to her library. What we have is a sweet story here about a girl who deep down knows what she is and what she wants but has always been too shy to take a hold of that.

As an actor, she’s able to portray herself as someone else, and that gives her a chance to not only to better embody a character that she’s after, but she’s also put in the path of a woman who may hold the answers to her questions. Carolyn is everything that she’s looking for, older, experienced, beautiful….

Where this story takes us in an innocently sweet introduction to a work of intimacy and passion that Kristin was always dreaming about and hoping for. She’s given an opportunity to live out her flirtation, her fantasy and see what that could bring to her life, all while being able to take on the ideal role in the theatrical performance.

We’re faced with the age old question in this story though of what is possible and what are the ramifications. Remember that Kristin is a student, and Carolyn is a professor and in EVERY situation, this is taboo and carries potentially more risk than reward. Both of them have so much to lose, so Kristin’s fantasy better be worth the risk right?

I say this EVERY time, but I would love to see how this story could play out long term – knowing that there is so much at stake, and so much that they could both learn from each other. The reader can only guess what ‘could be’ and what’s sustainable, and of course, my imagination goes in a million directions.

And of course – we can’t end a post without our GIVEAWAY!!! Enter HERE for a chance to win your own copy of this story! Good Luck!

Review: Giveaway: She’s the Boss by Ava Sterling

Title: She’s the Boss
Author:  Ava Sterling
Publisher/Year:  Red Lace Publishing 11/16/16
Length:   20 Pages

Overview

Kylie discovers that she likes to take charge in the bedroom as well as the board room.

Struggling to keep her magazine company in business and recovering from a recent breakup, she feels high strung. And on top of that, she can’t stop staring at Nick, her magazine’s graphic designer. With the two of them left alone one night at the office, she decides to find out just how well he can take directions.

My Thoughts

I always enjoy stories where there’s a woman who’s not just a boss but a BOSS and that’s what we have with Kylie in this novella. She’s a woman who knows exactly what she wants professionally in staring a magazine, personally in kicking her ex to the curb and romantically when she decides that it may be interesting to see what may happen with a sexy graphic designer that works for her.

As the one at the helm, she has to motivate everyone, get status updates from all the key people and it’s during one of those meetings when her eye catches on this one guy in the room. Then, when deadines are fast approaching and she can’t bring herself to make anyone stay to help her close out the latest issue, she finds herself at the office late at night, alone ,or so she thinks. Previously mentioned graphic designer pops his head in, and well, he offers to help her, yet neither is overt on what help they are talking about

What happens from there is a very quick and expected bit of hot and steaming something or other. Kylie is the boss of course which makes this situation complicated and the fact that she’s realizing as well that maybe she’s not just a boss in the office makes this encounter that much hotter.

She tells him what she wants, he’s shy at first and then seems fully on board with what she’s asking and then all bets are off. The question that we beg however is what does this mean for the office and this duo moving forward and how will it complicate things?

Being that this is a novella, it’s one of many questions that we don’t have to stress about having answers to – so i think that we can leave ourselves to wonder. What i can say though is that this gets me back on board with Ms Sterling and the other stories that i’ve read that i’ve enjoyed!

and of course – it’s GIVEAWAY. For a chance to win your own copy – enter here!

Review & Giveaway: Always in Control by Ava Sterling

Title: Always in Control
Author:  Ava Sterling
Publisher/Year:  Red Lace Publishing 6/6/16
Length:   18 Pages

Overview

Serena hasn’t worked long at the law firm before she catches the eye of Mr. Laing, a top lawyer within the company. She quickly falls into the role of his babygirl and submissive, pleasing him in every way she can think of.

One night, he takes her to a cocktail party, lavish and fancy compared to what she’s familiar with. There he tortures her in the sweetest way possible, barely hidden from the other unwitting guests. She hopes he enjoys his dessert later at home, but Mr. Laing may not be willing to wait that long.

My Thoughts

Happy Wednesday everyone! So here we are again, in one of the many worlds and stories by the great Ava Sterling. If you’ve spent time on her site to see the significant variety of what she writes, i think that you can see that i’ve been bouncing between category of kink trying to find which ones are my favorite. So this time around i’ve taken the leap into her own brand of power struggle, the master and submissive bit of romance. If you’ve spent time on my blog as well, you can see that I read quite a bit in this area, and it’s perhaps one of the more challenging ones, especially if you’re going to have a quick snippet or novella. There’s a trust dynamic and a storyline that needs to develop to truly understand how the dynamic works between the two.

I’ll start with saying that I really enjoyed that this story was focused in Manhattan since i like to see how my stomping ground gets incorporated into a story. We have a very successful man who has decided that his assistant is his new pet, and that’s something that Serena is completely on board with. I think that’s what fantasies are made of, being new to your job and some how catching the eye of your boss – a man who is powerful, wealthy and knows exactly what he wants and what you want when you don’t even know it.

We spend a quick night out with this duo – as they go from home where they are preparing for an event to the event itself where the control that Mr Laing has over Serena is impressive. He’s able to get her to do things that she never expected she would do, and she finds that she enjoys it more than anything. Where that takes them, both in private or in public is something that your imagination will have to run along with.

A parting thought that I have here is that this was a sweet quick intro into the world of control and dominance. It perhaps was a bit too sweet and quick though for my liking – i kept wanting to understand more of the back story here since that’s what really excites me. How did she get the job, what were his first advances, and what does it mean for her job long term. All things that we don’t get in a novella, but all things that i’m sure Ms Sterling has thought about should this have become something bigger.

Review: The Princess (Filthy Duet Trilogy #2) by Lisa Renee Jones

Title: The Princess
Author:  Lisa Renee Jones
Publisher/Year:  Julie Patra Publishing 1/22/19
Length:   284 Pages
Series:  Filthy Duet Trilogy #2

Overview

He’s the bastard of the empire, a savant, a genius, and a self-made success. He left it all behind, but he came back for her. 

Their passion is a flame that ignites more than their bond. It ignites secrets, lies, and a puzzle that once solved, will shake them to the core.

You know one deep, dark secret, but you do not yet know anywhere near everything.

My Thoughts

I LOVE this series – for so many reasons! To back up a second, i made the silly yet stupid mistake of reading a few things out of order i think, but on well right? I read The Bastard when it first came out and that introduced me to Eric, Greyson, Harper, Mia, reminded me that the Walkers exist since i clearly forgot about them and then took us on a journey. I then picked back up with the Walker Security series so that i could really get into the minds of everyone in this amazing deep ‘family’ and well, thank goodness The Princess finally came out!

Eric and Harper as you’ll recall have one of the most complicated pasts that you could imagine. Step Siblings sure, but there was an attraction from the first moment they met, but it was one that wasn’t meant to be then, or perhaps ever. But we know that in this genre, that’ll never be the case and they will likely piss each other off and so many other people because they just can’t stay away from one another.

So in this book, we find that they can’t stay apart, Eric feels the need to protect Harper when someone is clearly after her, even when he’s been given information by his half-brother Isaac to imply that Harper has lied to him about some of the most important things. Add to that the fact that they are both still trying to figure out what’s going on at Kingston and who’s behind it all, at the same time, knowing that Eric had/has ever intention of taking the company down as well.

We can clearly understand all the drama here right? It’s layer upon layer, secrets, lies, no idea who to trust, and some really intense passion and chemistry. Which Lisa Renee Jones is known for!

We find ourselves going from Denver back to New York in the hopes that a change in location will keep them safe, but of course that’ll never be the case. An assassin is sent to kill Eric which is unsuccessful. Attempts are made on other peoples lives and each time it happens, we find that we’re no closer to answers since the game that we thought certain family members were playing become less obvious because of who’s being taken out. One key player is left on life support in the ICU after being a target and that was a shock.

Throughout this story, we see that the Walker security clan plays a pivotal role – we rely on Blake to help decode things, and we see that Savage and Smith once again are front and center. (i LOVE Savage – just going to put it out there that i need a story about him STAT!). When yet another set of a coded messages come in and Harper can’t figure it out but Eric is triggered – well that means that their world is about to implode yet again.

Because….Eric has been hiding something, and Harper learns that he has been lying but not about what yet and it seems like this could be game changing!

I don’t think that we needed the intensity of the romance and passion that these two share, but i have to say that it was hot and such a compliment to this crazy insane story. When you see how Eric needs to protect Harper at all costs, and how she wants to do the same for him, knowing that he’s got this side to him that needs a savior, well of course it means that they’ll combust when they come together for a break. Their scenes are so hot that the flames leap from the page, in a dirty yet really sweet way which is the trademark of our author. I can’t wait for Book three to come out – The Empire i believe it’s called -and it can’t come fast enough! Enjoy!

Review & Giveaway: The Billionaire’s New Toy by Ava Sterling

Title: The Billionaire’s New Toy
Author:  Ava Sterling
Publisher/Year:  Red Lace Publishing 5/11/16
Length:   27 Pages

Overview

Claire wants to land the sale of the year, supplying all bedding materials for one of the largest luxury hotel chains in the country. The only thing standing in her way…is Connor Brenton.

A self-made Billionaire, Mr. Brenton is the type to go after what he wants. Now what he wants is Claire, but she’s more interested in padding her sales numbers than an erotic connection. At the sales appointment, it will be decided who gets what they want first.

My Thoughts

I’m a fan of this story – even more than the others that I’ve read recently by Ms Ava Sterling. What we have here is one of my favorite sub segments of the genre – the Alpha powerful man, and the sexy female who thinks that it’s her body that gets her what she wants until she realizes that she truly has the power because of how she carries herself.

What’s sweet about this story is that even though it’s a novella in length, we get an opportunity to see that there was a history between these two characters – a past shared experience and that’s what makes it feel more robust than others that I’ve enjoyed. While Claire clearly has her mind set on keeping her job and that means getting a sale out of a very successful yet handsome hotel owner, what she gets when she makes the attempt is so much more than she bargained for. Mr Benton has his mind set on success – and he is always successful. Will he be in this instance as well?

There’s a sweetness to this story while all the flirtation and heat is underneath. Mr Benton plays with Claire’s emotions and psyche which is a fun twist and the question from them will become how much will Claire bend, what will happen to her job, and what will happen to her. He’s skilled, capable of getting what he wants, when he wants it, and can she handle it? Very good question!

I wish we actually had more of this story as it has feelings of Sylvia Day and J Kenner among other authors when i read it.

Review & Giveaway: Role to Play: A Menage Story by Ava Sterling

Title: Role to Play: A Menage Story
Author:  Ava Sterling
Publisher/Year:  Red Lace Publishing 6/23/18
Length:   15 Pages

Overview

It’s time to admit her fantasy.

Being the wife of a police officer, Rose’s life is rarely dull. Her husband, Danny, is an attractive man, but sometimes that just isn’t enough. Sometimes, there needs to be more.

Danny’s best friend Ellis is the entire package. He’s also a police officer, but with that extra gruff. He’s like Danny but rougher around the edges with just the right amount of stubble gracing his cheeks. 

One night, Danny finally gets Rose’s fantasy out of her, and it involves Ellis. Finding it more agreeable than she ever would’ve guessed, Danny volunteers to arrange everything. It’s then she adds a twist–outdoors, in public, and with a role to play.

She can hardly wait.

My Thoughts

Thank you again to our lovely author Ms Ava Sterling for sharing another fantasy driven read! i’m definitely a fan of women who aren’t afraid to voice their fantasies to their SO and in this case that’s exactly what we get with Rose. She’s been married to a man who wants nothing but to please her and take care of her and she’s content with that. Of course though, there’s always room for more right?

With this couple, we also have the supporting role of the husband Danny’s best friend Ellis. A man that Rose has an attraction to and a man who has been part of a fantasy of hers. The question becomes though – just how willing to please is Danny? Is he willing to share with Ellis and is that something that Ellis is even open to? The other nuance to this fantasy is that Rose wants to live this out in public – that’s another element that can make this dicey and really really hot at the same time.

the question that we ponder while this story plays out is whether or not Danny will give in to what his wife wants, will Ellis participate and what will it mean for the couple and the friends. If nothing else, we know that at least hearing the fantasy that Rose wants to live out will be hot and steamy since that’s what our author always does. It’s always a quick burst of intense heat and chemistry in a way that feels so real and within reach yet so unattainable at the same time. Anyway check it out and enjoy!

And for those of you truly interested in checking it out – the first three readers who LIKE and click here to enter will get a free copy of their own!
