Despite the diamond on her finger, Maisie’s future has never looked so grim. Her arch-rival wants revenge, and she knows Maisie’s secret.

Ethan Brennbach, Trent Banno, and Raphael Lattimore aren’t just brilliant lawyers. They’re also complicated, dominant billionaires. If they find out what Maisie did…

The gorgeous, powerful men love her enough to lay down strict discipline.

They love her enough to marry her for her protection.

But what will happen when they realize she’s not worth the trouble?

My Thoughts

Well things are coming to a head with the lawyers, and with Maisie and with the case itself.  There’s so much uncertainty around what Maisie’s done and what that means for her future with the men, and if that weren’t enough, Byron is still on the loose and no one knows what he’s going to do.

Top that off with things moving forward with the search for Norman’s killer, and Heather and Jayne coming into the fold a bit more.  We know that Heather is a loose cannon and she’s got a vendetta against Maisie so it’s a matter of time before she takes an opening and talks to Ethan to put Maisie on blast.

If you remember from the last book, we know that Maisie has to marry one of the guys to protect her, but that’s not the only reason as we have learned that there are definite feelings among the group.  the question came down to which guy was going to be her husband legally and we learned that Ethan was the winner.  A great thing given that he seems to be the most alpha, but he’s also the most frightening.

True to Cleo Peitsche’s style, we get some of the hottest scenes between this foursome.  We know that they don’t just like it kinky and dirty but they like their toys and their dungeons.  That’s where we spend some time – both good and bad.  I think that Maisie uses it as a way to get things off her chest and that angers the men given that they want those types of games to be more of an enjoyable thing and not as a means to hide.

Regardless – we get a great ending and resolution to the story – and we see how things play out between all of the necessary players.  Finding out the killer took some time, but i think that it was the right person given where the story had taken us.  Seeing where Heather ended up as well was a nice bit of closure since we never wanted her to suffer, yet she was so vile to Maisie that you also didn’t want her to skate free.  All in all though, i’m really happy with how this series ran and i’m bummed that it’s over.  Have a great day all!

Maisie’s dominant bosses won’t budge: for her protection, she must marry one of them immediately.

On paper, they’re perfect. Ethan Brennbach, Trent Banno, and Raphael Lattimore are rich, gorgeous lawyers. The powerful billionaires give Maisie exactly what she needs, from every angle imaginable.

But after overhearing them arguing, she knows the devastating truth.

They don’t want her, not forever.

Unable to tell them the truth, soon she’s acting out. But her bosses have their own carefully laid plans.

They will bring Maisie under control, one way or another…

This office menage romance contains one curvy submissive and the three dominant men who are driving her crazy with their protectiveness and their secrets.

My Thoughts

Oh how this story just takes us down a path that you’re not quite sure you want to go.  In this 4th installment, we see Maisie faced with the decision that she’s going to have to marry one of the men, and she has no say in it – just so that both she and they can be safe as the investigation continues.

There are a few crimps in all this – Heather, Maisies ‘friend’ from school keeps coming around since she’s working on something with the firm, and she’s making Maisie miserable.  Jealous too for that matter.  Then there’s Ginelle who’s a girl that works with Maisie in her new role in the Janitorial division – and her life seems rather complicated which of course brings Maisie into it.

So…we’re still not sure who killed Norman, the chief of police is onto them, and the guy who’s investigating them is still trying to plant fake evidence to frame them.  It’s a wonder that they’re able to be as sensual and dominating as they are throughout this story.  how do they find the time?

But true to Ms .Peitsche’s style, we get to see PLENTY of that.  it’s naughty and dirty and all the best bits of a BDSM relationship among 3 hot powerful men and a woman who knows her value.

Where we net out at the end of this 4th installment, we know who Maisie is going to marry and we know when, but we don’t know when their lives are going to get back to normal.  On that note – have a great weekend everyone!

Series:  Lawyers Behaving Badly #3


Maisie’s life is spiraling the drain. She wants to get her job back, but her rich, powerful bosses have ordered her to stay away from their law firm until things settle down.

Ethan Brennbach, Trent Banno, and Raphael Lattimore are dominant men who are used to being obeyed. Their decisions are final.

But when Maisie’s college rival sets her sights on Ethan, Maisie makes a tough decision, knowing she’ll have to accept the consequences.

Can she survive a punishment tailor-made for her, or is her pride too strong?

My Thoughts

Oh do things keep getting better and better here.  We know that there’s a case being built against the lawyers for the murder of one of their client’s estranged husbands – and we don’t know who is behind it all, but we know that there’s a case being built.  The complicated bit of course is that the deputy chief of police is the deceased brother, making it personal as well as an investigation into a death.

If that weren’t enough, we know that Maisie was fired, and she’s being questioned by the police as well – so her life just about sucks.  Her ‘frienemy’ Heather pops up again, reaching out to get an intro (again) to Ethan, and that puts Maisie on jealousy high alert, so she does something that ultimately gets her into even more trouble.

The path we take in this installment is that no one knows the truth behind the murder and the lawyers themselves know how they can get their names cleared.  On top of that, they’ve found that Maisie is almost the perfect submissive for them, and if that weren’t enough, we get in this story EXACTLY what Cleo Peitsche is best at – some amazing group scenes that are so hot that they make you wonder if you should be trying out not just a threesome but something more.  It’s not just the steamy description of things, but the real connection that you feel between the characters – and how it’s more than sex – there’s romance and true love and feeling.

Where we are left off – well Maisie is yet again a pawn, with decisions of her future being made for her without her choices – and that means that we’re going to see a spicy, feisty version come out for sure.  I can’t wait to see what happens and what role Heather will continue to play.  I’m also really curious on Ethan’s back story since that keeps on coming up and never with the say path to progression of the story.  So  – onto the next.  Have a great night all!

Review: Destroyed (By a Dangerous Man #12) by Cleo Peitsche

Series:  By a Dangerous Man #12


The family business is in trouble, and bounty hunter Audrey Stroop is dying to get back to work. Her boyfriend, ex-assassin Corbin Lagos, is equally determined to keep her safe.

To do that, he’ll stay close, even if it means trying to keep his dominant nature in check.

When they team up to solve what should be an open-and-shut private investigation case, Audrey learns that being the boss isn’t easy. In fact, it’s almost impossible.

Did she really think a dominant, dangerous man like Corbin could ever truly submit?

My Thoughts

I don’t know how much father our author can take this series, but she’s definitely trying.  What we have here is the moment in the story where we’re on vacation with Corbin and Audrey since Corbin feels that she needs a break from the family business, and it’s harder than any one expected for her to take a month off.  being able to turn off her work mindset for even a little while is proving to be tough.

It’s while they are on their vacation that they cross paths with someone from back home (because that always happens right?) and that leads to some PI work for the firm.  What was supposed to be a cut and dry case of finding a bar mascot turns into something that’s more devious and complicated than expected.

The mascot is returned, but cut into pieces and all bloody and there are folks in the bar who are less than forthcoming with information to link things back.  Thank goodness Audrey and Corbin are so attuned to each other that they don’t have too long to figure out how to solve the case.

While that’s going on too though, Corbin is offering up his submission to Audrey, allowing her the opportunity to tell him what to do since part of her current level of frustration is that he’s always in control – and i think that it’s interesting to see that it’s so much harder than expected to let that happen.

My question now though is that i really don’t know how this series will continue since it seems to be quieting down just a little bit.  I feel like we see that Corbin and Audrey are trying to find their rhythm, and that Rob seems happy and that their father is coming to the realization that maybe he needs to listen to his kids in order to keep his business afloat.  So i guess we’ll just have to see if and when the story continues.  knowing full well that when it does, Corbin will make sure that we’re all sorts of hot and bothered.  Enjoy!

Series:  Lawyers Behaving Badly #2


Maisie is so screwed. Literally–who could resist dominant billionaire bosses? But it’s more complicated than that.

Ethan Brennbach. Raphael Lattimore. Trent Banno. To protect their most vulnerable clients, these hot lawyers aren’t just bending the rules.

They’re breaking the law.

If Maisie is too attached to turn her bosses in, she should at least get the hell away. Fast.

But she’s starting to unravel their secrets. Plus, it’s hard to run when she’s always on her knees.

And even harder when her heart is on the line.

My Thoughts

Ahhh the saga continues here for Maisie, both professionally and personally.  We see that her interactions with the three partners continues to bring a lot of heat and steam into what ever it is that they have, and at the same time, Maisie is trying to figure out if she wants to be a lawyer, if she can be one even.

In this second book, we see that Ms Donohue has something to hide, and perhaps that is why she’s so hard on Maisie.  there’s a moment that they share where Ms D gives her a bit more information about Ethan’s accident, but Maisie then finds out that what she was told wasn’t the whole truth, and of course that sets off alarm bells.  personally, i think i have her figured out from the hints that we’ve gotten so far, but i guess i’ll need to read on to see for certain.

We see a new friendship growing in Jayne – another lawyer there, and that’s something that i’m happy to see since it seems like Maisie is going to need support from someone.

Then of course there’s the fact that about 3/4 of the way through this book, Maisie’s life is turned upside down – and not in the way that it was in book 1.  Everything that she thought she could rely on now isn’t there at all, and i wonder where we’re going to be left in the next installment since you have to wonder if all or none of the men will stand by her, and if she’s even able to survive it all.

True to form with Ms Peitsche, we get some of the hottest ‘dirtiest’ naughtiest scenes ever.  While they aren’t the entire book, they definitely take up a lot of your attention and it’s hot.  I mean, few authors write scenes between 3 or more characters as well as we get here.

On that note, enjoy!

Review: Legally Binding (Lawyers Behaving Badly #1) by Cleo Peitsche


Title: Legally Binding
Author: Cleo Peitsche
Publisher/Year:  Pouch :Publications 3/23/16
Length:   92 pages
Series:  Lawyers Behaving Badly #1



(Author’s note: This novella is at a special intro price! Enjoy!) LEGALLY BINDING (Lawyers Behaving Badly #1) is a steamy office menage BDSM novella of 25,000 words.

Maisie can’t hide her shock the first time she sees Ethan Brennbach’s scarred, mask-like face.

Ethan. Gorgeous except for… yeah.

Ethan, her new boss.

He’s not impressed by her lack of tact. Neither are Raphael Lattimore and Trent Banno, the handsome partners at the prestigious LB&B law firm, where gossiping about Ethan’s appearance is grounds for termination.

The whole office is brimming with secrets, some downright dangerous. Soon the secrets include Maisie herself, the illegal activities she discovers…

…And the filthy things all three of her dominant bosses expect of her.

My Thoughts

True to what Ms Peitsche does best, we get a steamy introduction to a story of a newly minted assistant who’s about to find herself in the midst of a multiple partner ‘thing’.  Maisie, a girl who seems to be so much better equipped to be ‘more’ in her work life has been forced to take the worst of jobs in order to pay bills and make due.  She’s now gotten herself a job as an executive assistant to these sexy lawyers, and she doesn’t know what she’s in for.

Of course, it can’t be that easy – and what we know from other series that Cleo has given us, we know that there’s always going to be one of the male leads that won’t like her and one that develops a soft spot for her, while the other will walk the line in between, where he cares for her, takes pleasure from her and of course keeps things balanced.

So in this story, we have Ethan, the one that she’s made a bad impression on from the get go because of a scar that he has, Trent and Raphael who we’re not quite sure what to make of just yet….and well, it’s steamy from the moment she walks into an office and is ordered to close and lock the door.

The underlying bit of this story that hopefully will keep it moving outside of their BDSM play is that these guys truly are lawyers and there’s an interesting case that they are working on that has just developed a hiccup in terms of the health of one of the main ppl involved.  there’s also the factor of Jayne who’s a more junior lawyer in the firm who’s both ambitious and beautiful and who seems like she may not just be an ally for Maisie our lead, but may also be competition in a way.

So, i guess where leaves us is the need for a cold shower since we’ve already been overloaded with play between these 4, and well, it was hot.  Maisie’s been tied to the chair in the office, sampled more than any one girl could handle and shown that she can hold her own.

On that note – i’m on to the next, and i hope you have a great weekend.

Review: Protected by a Dangerous Man (By a Dangerous Man #10) by Cleo Peitsche


Title:  Protected by a Dangerous Man
Author: Cleo Peitsche
Publisher/Year: Pouch Productions 10/5/15
Length:  209 pages
Series:  By a Dangerous Man #10


He’s the man she’s been waiting for, but can she trust him?

Bounty hunter Audrey is close to solving her first big private investigation case, no thanks to her lying clients. But their omissions pale in comparison to what mysterious billionaire Corbin Lagos has been guarding under lock and key in his office.

Audrey doesn’t have time to confront Corbin, not when he’s determined to eliminate Henry Heigh once and for all. Keeping Corbin’s protective instincts in check is a game she can’t win, and the extremes he’ll go to will change their lives forever.

My Thoughts

We’ve been on this very long journey with these characters and it’s about time that we got to the conclusion of their story.  We know that Corbin and Audrey have had their ups and downs and the question that remains is what will it take to get back to the up and stay there.

When we left this couple, things were bubbling over all over the place.  there was the concern that Henry was still out to get Audrey (and by get i mean kill) and that Corbin was going to kill him first.  Then there was the story line of Corbin’s ex (sort of) wife who was still alive and wondering what her story was.  And then there’s the story line with Neil/JD and clan, and wondering who killed whom, and why – for what motivations.

So as you can imagine, knowing that Ms. Peitsche usually writes novella style books, it was going to be a big question of how that was all going to get resolved – but the great thing here, we got a full length – 200+ pages to finalize everything.

There’s still a lot of strange stuff going on that you’ll see – major trust issues, knowing that Audrey is being lied to by just about everyone, and the question becomes which story line will have a happy ending.

Sprinkled throughout thankfully though was the intense passion, heat and chemistry that i have come to expect from our author.  There’s still something insane and heated between Audrey and Corbin that is so hard to tame and i don’t know that we even want to.  In addition to their love story (since it truly is one) there’s such a great sexual story going along with it.  Showing us that Audrey is more mature than she even knew, and that even she can experience heat and passion like never expected before.

As expected,we get to see stories culminate with some deaths, some lies, some of the stories not quite tied up as expected but still resolved enough to avoid question.  I think that there’s still a lot to wonder about Rob and Jennifer – what would happen there if left to simmer and then there’s Sara – JD’s sister and her who life.  So while so much was resolved, still so much to wonder.  all in all,  a great finale to the series.  Enjoy!

Review: Careless (After Forever / Bisexual Billionaire #1) by Cleo Peitsche

Series:  After Forever #1


After being forced out of his company, Nelson returns home a billionaire with a hole in his life. When he meets Kimberly and Samuel, he decides he’ll have them both.

But Kimberly and Samuel aren’t a couple, and Samuel’s the one holding things up. He hasn’t dated a woman in five years, and even though it’s plain he loves Kimberly, he agrees to Nelson’s threesome on the condition that it be only one night.

Kimberly would marry Samuel in an instant if he asked. He’s just not interested. But a single night to satisfy her curiosity is better than never knowing Samuel’s kiss.

There’s no way for Nelson, Samuel and Kimberly to all get what they want. One careless moment of weakness has the power to destroy them.

My Thoughts

Well, I’m usually a huge fan of Cleo’s and love just about any situation that we’re put into with what she’s written but i have to say that i was under whelmed by this one.  I don’t know what it was – i just didn’t get into this first installment of the series.

What we have here is an interesting triangle of sorts.  You have Samuel and Kimbery who are best friends and have this attraction to one another that they wont validate for one reason or another and then you have Nelson who is just too open and willing to come in and show them what they don’t see and at the same time get what he wants from them.

There’s potential here for sure – since i think that’s one of the great things that Ms. Peitsche writes – scenes with multiple partners and really vivid interactions, but it just fell a bit flat in my opinion.  We learn that Nelson likes the naive mixed with the sensual, which is what we gather is the case with Kimberly and Samuel, but aside from that – it’s just a bit all over the place.  We get the beginnings of a relationship between the friends, the intro to BDSM a bit at least from Nelson, and then, i don’t know what else.

I can’t say that i’m going to track down the next installment too quickly, but i think that i owe it to my overall positive opinion of our author to give the rest of it a shot at some point.  so we’ll see.  On that note – Happy tuesday all (although it’s POURING here right now – so i’m not happy).

Review: Desired by a Dangerous Man (By a Dangerous Man Season 2 Ep. 4) by Cleo Peitsche


Title:  Desired by a Dangerous Man

Length: 124 pages
Series:  By a Dangerous Man Season 2 Ep 4


Corbin Lagos is everything Audrey ever wanted, but the billionaire ex-assassin who stole her heart is hiding something. Something big.

And he’s becoming more secretive by the day.

She doesn’t have time to tend to her relationship, not when the family bounty hunting business is failing and the clock is ticking on the most important investigation of her career.

This time she can’t do it alone. Corbin is the only one who can help, but his methods lead to changes she’s not prepared for.

My Thoughts

The saga continues, with a lot of twists and turns in both investigations being done by Audrey and Corbin.  when we left off, things were so up in the air for both that there was the potential for it to pull them apart although it’s not likely since they are so in love.

So in this next installment, we see Audrey and her brother Rob trying to uncover who really murdered JD, Neil’s boyfriend, and they are led to LA where Sara, JD’s sister directed them to search his apartment.  What they find is little to no information, but being the skeptics that they are, Audrey seems to think that there’s a lot that’s being hidden and she’s going to do whatever it takes to find out since it means that they’ll be able to save Massimo, and hopefully their business.

Then there’s the investigation that Corbin is doing, trying to get to the bottom of what happened to his wife.  He’s beginning to question everything that he’s been told so far and i’m not surprised that he’s come to the conclusions that he has.  the issue now is really figuring out what happened to her and which side she’s playing for.

Now that takes us back to the ‘happy couple’ since both investigations are starting to take their toll on happiness.  On top of that, we still know that Henry is out to kill Audrey, and Corbin will do whatever he can to protect her.  That means of course making her a bit mad, but hey, at least while they are mad, they share passions on top of passions and that’s super hot.

Again, one of the GREAT things that cleo does for us in her writing is give us really steamy sceneing between our leads.  Corbin is such a powerful Alpha male that you know you’re going to get something that’s so naughty and hot that you can’t contain your enthusiasm.  Audrey is so open to everything that he wants to do and do to her all the time, that it’s just hot to read.  It’s a shame that we’ll have to keep waiting to find out what will happen, but you know that whatever’s being cooked up will be good.  So enjoy all and have a great saturday!

Review: Forbidden Fix (Executive Toy #6) by Cleo Peitsche


Title: Forbidden Fix
Author: Cleo Peitsche
Publisher/Year: Pouch Productions 6/1/15
Length: 118 Pages
Series: Executive Toy #6


Lindsay has made a terrible mistake.

Her billionaire bosses are ensnaring her grandfather in an elaborate scheme, but Lindsay knows it’s too late. By confronting her grandfather, she accidentally revealed the one thing he can use to control her: her sister.

She loves her bosses and her new life with them, but she won’t abandon her sister again.

Romeo, Slade, and Hawthorne are powerful men, and they convince her to trust them just a little longer. They won’t let anything happen to her.

Then, everything shatters again.

My Thoughts

We’ve been with these 4 for quite some time now and it’s only fitting that the way that they go out is in style.  It’s full of anxiety, tension, scheming, secrets, questions of trust and well…..lots and lots and lots of kinky sex.  Which is EXACTLY what i needed this weekend since mine’s been pretty crappy.

We all know that Lindsay is in a place that’s uncertain with her men – she doesn’t know where she stands with them…well that’s not true – she knows where she stands with Slade but Hawthorne and she have a love/hate thing and Romeo is hung up on their ex.

On top of that though, they don’t let any of that uncertainty get in the way of her ‘training’ and she’s being trained in excess.  when she does things to ‘break rules’ she’s punished, and depending on the boss, she does those things on purpose to get punished.  Which of course makes for some of the hottest sceneing yet in this series.  I mean, we know how to push Hawthorne’s buttons at this point, and it seems like she’s taking it almost a bit too far….eliciting some great reactions.  Romeo on the other hand, well we know that he’s HUGE both physically (muscle tone) and PHYSICALLY – as in he’s very well endowed.  And even lindsay struggles to accommodate him.

The other bit to this series finale is that we still don’t know what’s going to happen with her grandfather, and what the plan is that the men have to trap him.  The won’t let Lindsay in on it and she’s hating that since she can’t protect her sister.  Where it all goes awry though, it’s dicey.

We’re left at the end of this story with an ambush of sorts, the questioning of whether the foursome will last, and well, when 2 people are shot, we actually find that we don’t have to question the relationship since we’re left down a man.

In any event, that’s as much of a spoiler as i’ll allow, but the good news is that we were teased with the idea of a new spin off with Layla – Lindsay’s sister who’s just taken a job in New York.  So…onto the next and enjoy.  Happy Sunday all!
