^ On His Terms (Mastered) (Volume 2)

It was business only… Chelsea Barton is terrible at the whole submission thing, and she wants to snare the Dom of her dreams. She seeks out the renowned trainer Master Alexander. Alex has his hands full with Chelsea, especially when he realises he doesn’t want to turn he

On His Terms (Mastered) (Volume 2)

On His Terms is a must read, even if you weren't a huge fan of With This Collar, Sierra MORE than made up for her short comings. The dynamic between Chelsea and Master Alexander is beyond erotic, hot, and totally believable! I went through a full array of emotions when reading this book. There is one scene that had my heart racing, followed by another that had my... pants racing! ;)
Well done Sierra, fantastic job!

The Feast of All Saints

Remembering the Gone and Forgotten
Here - coincidently on this night of All Souls - floating through my brain are thoughts on this Anne Rice novel, which indeed is one of her best.

Before I mention all that this fine novel is, let me state precisely what it is not: It's not a book to be read quickly - for if you are used to reading through things briskly, with the urgent anticipation of the next read always at hand - then this one is sure to frustrate you; It's not an eventful or an adventurous storyline - though A.R. has written quite a few fast-moving tales, this one is slow and meticulous in both movement and detail; There is no absolute line drawn between the hero and adversary in this plot - every character is given a point of view in order to be understood, and elaborated upon until for certain it is understood.

This is a novel unlike most novels. Set in New Orleans before the Civil War, FEAST OF ALL SAINTS is the story of a distinct yet veritably unknown society of people - numbering approximately 18,000...

A gutsy, uninhibited straight man, Ziggy, becomes sexually active with Josh, a shy, new-found gay friend.  Josh has a lot more to offer someone than he's ever been able to show.  Ziggy's generosity and genuine affection allow Josh to express feelings and desires he's ne

Try Anything Twice: A Gay Man's Erotic Friendship with a Free-Spirited Straight Man

A Wonderful Departure From Most Gay Literature!
I normally avoid literature of this genre. It seems that most other such works are simply a series of sexual encounters with a bare minimum of story and character development.
I purchased and read "Try Anything Twice" on the advice of a friend who had read it. I was extremely pleasantly surprised! Yes. There are lots of sexual encounters. And they are HOT! But there is also an enormous amount of story and character development that made me really care for and care about the two main characters - Josh and Zig. I had a difficult time putting the book down. Josh and Zig are the type of guys I would like to have for friends. And I would like to know more about them and what happens to them next.
Perhaps Josh Jango will write a sequel. How about "Try Anything Thrice".

Enslave Me Sweetly (Alien Huntress, Book 2)

Chained Lightning
After her parents were brutally murdered, young Eden Black was raised by Michael, the head of an ultra-secret alien assassination agency that eliminates aliens that prey on humans. Wounded on her latest assignment, Eden still wants to go after her target, but her step-father partners her with Lucius Adaire, an agent she comes to totally detest at first. However, he also pings her sexual radar with an intensity Eden has never before experienced. Bound together to complete an almost impossible assignment, Eden learns that her enemies aren't the ones she has to fear the most: it's her partner, dark and brooding Lucius who sets her on fire.

Gena Showalter is one of the new young lionesses of contemporary romance, paranormal romance and YA. She's burst onto the scene with a handful of books and as many worlds that beg exploration.

> The 120 Days of Sodom and Other Writings

The Marquis de Sade, vilified by respectable society from his own time through ours, apotheosized by Apollinaire as "the freest spirit that has yet existed," wrote The 120 Days of Sodom while imprisoned in the Bastille. An exhaustive catalogue of sexual aberrations and the f

The 120 Days of Sodom and Other Writings

Sade's Masterpiece
I wanted to contribute a review to correct some of the impressions readers may have gotten from other customers' reviews of 120 Days of Sodom. First of all, I do regard 120 Days as a masterpiece -- Sade's only masterpiece, and a dazzling contribution to world literature. I will spend the rest of this review hopefully providing 120 Day's future readers some keys to appreciate this mammoth, peculiar novel.

120 days is shocking, horrifying -- disgusting. This is pretty well universally agreed upon. This in itself says quite a lot. We live in a world where "shocking" has lost much of its meaning. Yet the Marquis De Sade continues to shock our jaded, supposedly unshockable sensibilities; if we want to read this book well, it's worth asking ourselves why. As Simone De Beauvoir says in her introduction to this edition, Sade was a good novelist -- and a great moralist.

One thing Sade definitely was not was a proselytizer for sexual freedom. The recent move "Quills" -- while not...

Best Women's Erotica 2011

This collection has everything, from stunning, to shocking, and strange
Plot Summary: This erotic collection written by women, for women, contains 19 stories ranging from sexy to kinky and everything in between.

My primary thought after finishing Best Women's Erotica 2011 is that it's filled with fetishes. I can guarantee that there's at least one story in here for everyone, but with that grand-sounding promise comes my regret that several of the stories did not please me. To put it another way, I love to visit Baskin Robbins for ice cream, but that doesn't mean I want to have a bite of every flavor in the house. I wanted chocolate and strawberries, and what I got was a lot of weird, fruity flavors that were interesting but not the sort of thing I'd want to consume beyond that initial taste.

Even though some of these stories did not turn me on, they were all beautifully written, without exception. I have yet to read a collection by editor Violet Blue...

Own the Wind: A Chaos Novel

Et Tu KA???
I gave this 3 stars out of a sense of loyalty, but really, this is getting ridiculous. KA has held reigning title as absolute FAVE author, for quite sometime. But with her last 3 releases, I'm starting to forget why. Truthfully if I had started reading her at Creed, Raid or OTW..I wouldn't have bothered to read anything else.
Where's the struggle? Where's the gut wrenching emotional trauma? Where's the fierce (sometimes gruesome)action sequences?
She used to create these scenarios, and character development, and deeply painful moments of vulnerability. Her books used to be about something other than a never ending stream of the same sex scenes that we've already read in every other book.


By my count there were several different places where an actual plot point could have happened:

Zane's Total Eclipse of the Heart: A Novel

'Total' definition: complete in extent or degree and in every particular.
... and that pretty much sums up this new novel by Zane. There are some books that you read, and then there are some books that read you. The last time I felt emotional about a Zane book was `Nervous'. Now I know some of y'all might be saying, "why your stupid tail getting all emotional over an erotic book"? Well, after I punched you in the face I would say "read this book first and THEN ask me that question". I swear Zane needs to teach a class on what it takes to write a book because she gets it right (again) with this one.

Yeah, it has all of the insanely hot sex that Zane is known for; matter of fact the way this book starts is enough to have you running and jumping into a bathtub full of ice. As with all of her novels, Zane has created characters that you will love AND hate. Patrick. Patrick, Patrick, Patrick. And Carleigh... her idiot antics made my gall bladder hurt. Zane creates the perfect blend of drama, sex, humor, and strikingly real life situations...

Delightfully trashy!
This book is just a terrific read. From the first page, Ms. Harvey just draws you into the worlds of not only the main character, but the subplots are pretty enticing, as well.

This book, along with the sequel, "Stars" (which you MUST read if you have read this book, and vice versa) are on my permanent summer reading list - books I re-read each year. Love, lust, revenge, redemption - it's all here. One of the best things about these books is that there is a sense of closure once you complete both volumes, unlike many novels which seem to end before the story is complete. Highly recommended!

don't think don't question just do  The anonymous note wasn't for me. Don't get me wrong, I'm not in the habit of reading other people's mail, but it was just a piece of paper with a few lines scrawled on it, clearly meant for the apartment upstairs. It looked so innocent,


Glad to Finish
I bought this book assuming that Megan Hart would grab my attention again. I was beyond disappointed. This book didn't get interesting until towards the end of chapter 17... but the excitement didn't last. Hart spent a lot of time backtracking, as if she literally wrote this book on a couple of hours.

If she had written a book leading up to what this book was supposed to be about, then anticipation may have actually been present. I was so ready to be finished with this book, I found myself scanning past all of the insignificant details about paper (yes, paper), her young half brothers, her mom's ex boyfriends, her father's new wife, etc... She spent way too much time describing those things, that it filled most of the book.

The story about the neighbor is the story I wanted to read, and it was not what I got. Just SOOOOO disappointed. I've never given a book less than 3 stars before, and I wish I wasn't now, but I wish I would've read someone else's review...

The Auction

This is one fabulous BDSM novel.
This is one fabulous BDSM novel. In addition to the solid punch of sado-masochism that Claire Thompson is so gifted at delivering, this is also the story of those circumstances and motivations, fears and challenges that can control us if not honestly acknowledged. Enjoyable, arousing and memorable are three words that come to mind upon finishing this book.

So often the last chapter of a book is a rather generic summing up of the story and the characters of a book. Not so with The Auction! The last chapter is as heart-stopping and riveting as the rest of this book, maybe even a little more so.

Claire Thompson is on the must-read list of many who live the BDSM lifestyle on a daily basis. This book is sure to increase those numbers.

Dirty Laundry: A Tucker Springs Novel

Very enjoyable read!
I've been visiting Tucker Springs for three days now and I have to say that this last visit was the best one yet.

- Interesting and complex characters. CHECK

- Emotionally driven. CHECK

- Real and believable situations. CHECK

- Sexual chemistry and scorching hot sex scenes. CHECK

Denver caught my attention in the previous book of the series, Second Hand. As I saw it, he didn't do relationships and was happy being a bouncer just as long as it helped him 'get tail'. However, some times when he talked to El in the previous story I got the feeling that there was much more to him than what he portrayed.

Denver Rogers has layers upon layers under all that muscle. I wish I could tell you all about them, but since it was a joy for me to get to known him, I will leave it to you to discover. I will only say that after only reading up to the 11% mark Denver had won my heart. After that I was a goner. That's not to say that...

Steamy, sensual and poetically hypnotic, Missionary No More: Purple Panties 2 is the follow-up to the bestseller Purple Panties. No one can debate the fact that Zane knows sex. The Queen of Erotic Fiction has hit home run after home run in the literary arena with her lit

Missionary No More: Purple Panties 2

Similar And Almost The Same
MISSIONARY NO MORE is a collection of short stories geared towards the lesbian community. The stories vary in style and presentation. The stories within this compilation are graphic, some stories deal with fetishes and there is even a science fiction erotic tale.

The most memorable story to me is "Caged", which details the rise and fall of a young woman whose looks made prison a living nightmare and left her facially disfigured. Life for the young woman didn't get better behind bars until she allowed herself to be used sexually by the other inmates.

MISSIONARY NO MORE, as with the previous Purple Panties anthology, has to be read with an open mind. Even with my open mind, I was not as enthralled with many of the stories and at times, the stories were so similar they were unexciting. Although the writing wasn't bad, some of the stories were a bit too explicit for my taste and this collection lacked the sensuality of the original anthology.

>>> For Her Pleasure

A delicious twist on erotic romance, and the debut collection from a hot new author. Three novellas. Two interlocking stories. One sizzling read. Nice set up: one spirited woman in Kit Townsend, and two hot buddies, Ryder and Mac, who take turns giving Kit what she needs.

For Her Pleasure

Fatal flaw. Scared woman likes bondage after being raped.
First I want to say that I do think Maya Banks is a great writer of sexually romantic scenes. But in this book, specifically the first part where Kit has two lovers and she discovers she likes bondage sex with them, it has a fatal flaw for me. It just might be only me, but I didn't buy the fact that she liked bondage after going through such a horrific rape, and still scared to death because the rapist is unknown and still out there. I just don't buy it. Also why would the two guys who love her and want to care for her put her though bondage knowing what she went through? That is why I rated it a three. That said I do like her writing style and the way she blended three stories into one book. I personally think Maya doesn't need to put bondage in her stories, and she can write some great sexual tension and tricks without it. If you're into a little bondage, I suggest Maya Banks "Sweet Surrender", where the story of a woman exploring bondage is a little more believable. If...
