BLURB:

She gave him her heart. Now he will accept nothing less than her total surrender.

Samantha was content to never settle down, but that was before Derrick bossed his way back into her life. Now, all she wants to do is surrender to his control.

Derrick spent his life protecting others, so taking over security at his club was a no brainer. What he didn’t count on was Samantha and his need for her submission.Danger from his past interrupts their present, and Derrick will do anything to keep Samantha safe.

All he has to do is find the enemy in the shadows before it’s too late.

EXCERPT:

“I believe you promised me something.” He stepped forward.

“I don’t remember saying anything, Sir.” This wasn’t a scene. She was flirting with him and enjoying every minute.

“You may not have said anything, but you made promises all the same.” Her mouth watered at the thought of what she was about to do. Right there in the shower, she kneeled down and stared at what she was about to take in her mouth. He was gifted to say the least. A little intimidated by the size of it, she was never one to walk away from a challenge.

She leaned forward and licked a drop of precum from the tip. He tasted salty and a little sweet, kind of like the man himself.

“Oh, Little Red, don’t tease me, you know what I need.” He shifted his hips forward slightly, and she opened her mouth eager to take him in. Samantha felt powerful when he moaned with her first approach. She moved forward inch by inch while swirling her tongue around his shaft. Eyes closed, he leaned his head back as if praying to the heavens.

Two minutes ago I was lying in my hospital bed, waiting to die of cancer, reading an awesome sci fi romance on a mysteriously delivered e-reader.

Now I’m in another galaxy, cancer free. The aliens abducted me because they want me to a bride for one of their warriors. Weird. The whole thing sounds a lot like the story I was just reading…

Except the surly warrior who’s supposed to claim me doesn’t want a mate.

EXCERPT:
She realized suddenly that she was still crying. This agonizing sobbing sound was coming out of her, so foreign she kept forgetting it was her. How could she make those sounds? She was sure she’d cried every tear, felt every regret, ruminated and obsessed over every grudge.  She’d thought she was empty, done.

It was that emptiness that had finally brought her to the brink of her own demise. Yet here she was, the emotion spilling out, a never-ending fountain bubbling over with rage and pain. She flinched when he started to stroke her back. She flinched because she expected to feel him flinch when he touched her. She expected his fingertips to stutter and halt against the scars in revulsion. But they didn’t.

He touched her as if she were unbroken. 

“What do you need, Shannon?”

“Something you can’t give me.”

“You don’t know until you ask.”

She shook her head. “It can never be you.” Even though he was the only offer on the table. Even though he was the only one she’d wanted back when things were simple. 

The arousal cream continued on in its mission to drive her crazy, but her mind had become so far removed from sex that it acted as a dull background throb which she kept forgetting how to define because all she could think about was how this couldn’t happen with the doctor.

She couldn’t give herself to him like that—not in the way every last insane ounce of her wanted to. She couldn’t give in to the id. She’d made that mistake once. He’d already proven he wasn’t a man she could trust. 

He pressed warm soft kisses against her back, trailing up to her neck. He quietly untied her, then he sat beside her on the leather table and pulled her into his arms, his mouth finding hers, lingering there, softly at first, then hungrily as if he might devour her whole. She didn’t resist him. It felt too good. Even if she hated him. It was so late. She was so tired. 

He carried her up the stairs to his suite and laid her down on his giant bed in the plant room. Ralph was asleep in his cage though the parakeets still twittered quietly to each other. He covered the bird cages with a blanket, turned on a thunderstorm white noise machine, and then climbed into the bed with her.

Shannon barely breathed as he pulled her against him and wrapped an arm around her.

“What are we doing?” she whispered.

“We’re sleeping.”

“You know what I mean.”

“Sleep, kitten.”

She knew what he’d said in the dungeon about wanting her, and the kiss had felt real enough. And they’d shared a moment—she thought—but she couldn’t help thinking this was all some strange unconventional therapy that meant nothing beyond keeping her from killing herself. She couldn’t let herself believe it was anything more.

But if it was therapy, it might be working because suddenly dying was the last thought on her mind.

Defended – A NEW BLACK LIGHT BOOK!!

BLACK LIGHT: DEFENDED by Golden Angel

IT’S HERE!

Black Light: Defended by Golden Angel is LIVE!!!

MY REVIEW – 4.5 stars

Don’t be put off by the Daddy Dom/ little girl theme

If you’re thinking about reading this book the chances are you are either a Golden Angel fan or love the Black Light series. If like me you love them BOTH, then you are in for one heck of a treat. The author has written a DD/lg romance that can be enjoyed by those who both love the genre and those who don’t mind BDSM but aren’t so sure if it’s their thing (either in reality or in reading material).

Melody is very much a people pleaser and does come across as a bit of a doormat at times. HOWEVER that is very much a deliberate move by the author and is integral to the plot of the book. Kawan is very definitely a Daddy Dom but has been burnt before and occasionally struggles to totally trust Melody’s motives. So we get to see both characters grow and develop as the story unfolds, and what a fantastic story it is.

Defended is very much a contemporary romance, and is about two people with very specific needs and desires learning how to fit those into a relationship that works for them both. Melody is a newbie to the scene but knows she has certain ‘interests’, Kawan is very aware of what he needs in a relationship. I loved how he never overwhelmed Melody, he was almost over concerned that he didn’t influence her choices and decisions, and that made me love him all the more. Kawan punished where necessary but first and foremost cared for and respected Melody.

The story contains a variety of BDSM scenes, some at home and some at the Black Light club. And yes, the author did go there with diaper play but in such a way that (a) it wasn’t difficult to read if it’s not your thing and (b) in such a way that we could understand why it can be enjoyable – even for those who aren’t ‘baby littles’. The scene almost felt educational albeit in a scorching hot ‘I hope no one is reading this over my shoulder’ kind of way.

It was a gentler read than the author’s Stronghold series, though no less enthralling. Given the power exchange dynamic I truly believe it needed that softer touch. I knew a BL book by Golden Angel would be good – but I really didn’t guess it would be this good.

For Melody Williams, her fantasy of a Daddy Dom has always been limited to the books she devours in secret. But when a trip to Black Light brings dominant men out of her imagination and into real life, Melody quickly falls for everything about this exciting new world, including a certain gorgeous lawyer on whom she has a very serious crush.

Kawan Park joined Black Light in the hopes of finding his perfect Little Girl. He never expected to meet her in the courtroom first. But once Melody is no longer off-limits as his client, he’ll stop at nothing to make her his when all bets are off at the club.

Despite their instant connection, meddling friends and the stresses of life will threaten Melody and Kawan’s happily-ever-after. Can the pair negotiate a bond that will work, or will Melody crumble under the stress of her newfound lifestyle and leave her dream Daddy undefended?

She’ll juggle your balls.
For Stella Allesandro, chaos is good. She’s a rising star at a leading sports publicity firm. She’s known throughout the industry as the jock whisperer—the one who can tame the baddest of the bad boys in professional sports without losing her signature smile.

But Cal Hartshorn is an entirely different kind of chaos.

He’ll fix your broken heart.
This ex-Army Ranger and now-famous cardiothoracic surgeon fails at nothing…except talking to a woman he’s adored from afar. Whether on the battlefield or operating room, he’s exacting, precise, and efficient, but all of that crumbles when Stella is in sight.

Cal always knows—and gets—what he wants, and now he wants all of her. His forever girl.

She started out reporting for an indie arts and entertainment newspaper back when people still read newspapers, and she has been writing and surreptitiously interviewing people—be careful sitting down next to her on an airplane—ever since.

Kate lives on the water in New England with Mr. Canterbary and the Little Baby Canterbary, and when she isn’t writing sexy architects, she’s scheduling her days around the region’s best food trucks.

Masters of the Shadowlands

4.75 STARS

Lean on Me (Masters of the Shadowlands, #4)
by Cherise Sinclair 

Every time I read a Cherise Sinclair book (or a Lexi Blake book) I wonder why it’s been so long since I last read one. The truth is that I am in far too many arc groups – but love all those authors too much to leave any! As a result I rarely get the time to read ‘just for me’. When I do indulge myself in a free choice read (not that I don’t really have a choice with the arcs) Cherise is now top of my go-to list.

I bought this book a couple of years ago as part of a box set and could have sworn I’d read all 4 books. Colour me surprised when I started reading book 5 and discovered I’d missed one! So I jumped straight into this and loved every single moment.

Cherise has a talent for pushing your boundaries without tipping over the line into dub/non-con.  (I love those genres too but that’s not what these books are about.)  She can make you feel uncomfortable but not annoyed or disappointed, just like her amazing Dom’s do with their sassy subs.

The BDSM scenes are tasteful but still incredibly hot and didn’t overwhelm the story. Andrea and Cullen were caught in a maelstrom of emotions, fighting against either their ‘rules’ or their insecurities. There was push and pull without it seeming unnecessary or forced, instead what we get is a beautiful love story between two very strong personalities.

It was refreshing to see a submissive who needed someone strong enough to force/demand her submission. One for whom submission wasn’t always easy. Andrea wasn’t really a brat, she was a woman who struggles to give up the tight control that has been ingrained into her. Cullen is such a dreamy Master and sees Andrea in a way many others don’t.

Lean on Me is a fantastic BDSM romance and one I highly recommend.


AMAZON US / AMAZON UK / BOOKBUB / GOODREADS

BLURB

Andrea wants to submit, but not to just any so-called Dom. He has to be tougher than the slum-bred bullies she grew up with. She’d given up finding a true Dom when her friend finagles her a place as a trainee in an exclusive BDSM club with the powerful Shadowlands Masters. Andrea’s thrilled…and terrified.

Forced to accept an unknown submissive into his carefully run trainee program, Master Cullen is furious. Not only is the young woman new to BDSM, but she’s unsuited to her role–armored in leather like a Domme, she’s more liable to punch a Dom than kneel. He decides to push her right back out the door. But as he ruthlessly intimidates her, punishes her, then cuddles her, he glimpses the woman inside the emotional barriers. Her utter surrender captures his heart.

Although Master Cullen is famous for his unfettered lifestyle, Andrea hopes he might be interested in her, until she discovers he’s not just a bartender–he’s a cop. Maybe he’d overlook her past brush with the law, but when another trainee accuses her of stealing money, Andrea knows she’s lost the Master she wanted with all her heart.

Make Me, Sir (Masters of the Shadowlands, #5)
by Cherise Sinclair 

Reading this has left me wanting to spend a small fortune buying all the other books Cherise Sinclair has written and then spend the next month reading them all. Sadly real life won’t let me do that but I AM determined to work my way through them as and when time and money allow.

Gabi and Marcus are really well written characters, very easy to like and with hidden depths. We also saw them both grow and learn new things about themselves. The story drew me in from the very start and I struggled to put it back down. Boring things like work and sleep got in the way of me reading this in one sitting otherwise I would have done exactly that.

Cherise’s writing is excellent, as usual, I did think I’d spotted a few typo’s but then realised it was Marcus’ colloquial way of speaking! She has an amazing ability to write in a way that puts you into the scene, even inside the character’s head at times. Her BDSM scenes work and even when the Doms push boundaries it’s done in a careful, caring and consensual way. Her Doms may spank and ‘beat’ the ass of their subs, but they also always respect them and that ethos is evident throughout the story.

We don’t just get Gabi and Marcus’ view points, which seemed a little bit strange at first, but was VERY necessary to the plot. It didn’t take me long to get into it and I loved how it allowed us to see more of Jessica and Z’s relationship without it being in the form of a twee short story or ‘extended epilogue’ type of offering.

There is a back story, the reason Gabi is at Shadowlands, that wasn’t completely finished in this book. However that in no way detracts from the enjoyment of reading this. It does leave you wanting more, but that’s true of ANY Cherise Sinclair book.

If you enjoy BDSM romance then this series, or any book from it, is a must read. Each can be read stand alone, though once you’ve read one you WILL have to read them all, so you might as well start with book #1! I hugely recommend this, hugely.


AMAZON US / AMAZON UK / BOOKBUB / GOODREADS

BLURB

Her job is to make his life miserable. His job is to make her submit. Whose heart will surrender first?

Across the country, rebellious BDSM submissives are being systematically kidnapped, one from each club. When her friend falls prey to the slavers, FBI victim specialist Gabrielle volunteers to be bait in a club not yet hit: the Shadowlands.

She finds that being a bratty sub comes naturally, especially when she gets to twit the appallingly conservative Master of the trainees. But she soon discovers he’s not as stuffy as she’d thought. Or as mean. She’d expected punishment, even humiliation, but she sure never expected to fall in love with a damned lawyer.

Courtesy of a prima donna ex-wife, Marcus loathes disobedient submissives. When the club owner insists he admit an incredibly bratty trainee, he’s furious. But as he comes to know Gabrielle and sees the alluring sweetness beneath the sass, he starts to fall for her.

Unfortunately, Marcus isn’t the only one who believes the feisty redhead is a prize worth capturing. And in the world of the slaver, such treasure is worth a hefty fee.
