Embers (Special Agent BDSM #5)
by C.P. Mandara

Embers? There are no embers, this is a raging inferno!

Talk about twisted plots and deception upon deception, just who is in cahoots with who? I’m fairly certain we can trust James, well most of the time, and Adie seems fairly sweet, in that twisted sadist way. Lois continues to be amazing, hard as nails but she is also so caring and warm too.

There is a lot of kink, some of it quite sadistic, along with the usual fast paced and exciting plot. Embers had me spellbound from the first page to the last, for me it was sheer perfection. Yes I’m impatient about getting to the end of the story, but then I always am, and if I’m totally honest I’ll also hate leaving this fantastic world and the hot, sexy and very kinky trio that inhabit it.

This is part of an ongoing series and can not be read as a stand alone, but it is well worth reading them all. Book #1 is the lightest of the bunch, it’s a very hot BDSM read, they all are, with subsequent books having darker and darker themes. (Though I wouldn’t call it a dark read per se). The suspense/peril elements have you on the edge of your seat and just as you get ‘comfortable’ another shocking revelation tips you off balance again.

I have LOVED this series, loved this book just as much and am massively looking forward to the final book, Ashes.


I did the unthinkable. I slept with James. It wasn’t as if I had a choice – but now that the deed is done, I am paying the price. One more mistake, and I’m dead.

At the moment, I’m doing my best to make sure he can’t stand the sight of me. It’s not working. Every day we spend together is torture, and the more I am around the man, the more I want him. We can’t get this close and hope to stay alive.

Our next assignment will push us to the limit in every way that matters. I’m not even sure we can work together after what I’ve done to him, but we have to rescue Adie, who is being held hostage.

Our goal is to kill Alain, but the chances of us achieving that are virtually impossible. I can work with those odds, though. There is no other option

5 stars – This is a book I will not forget and would definitely read again.

4 stars – I really enjoyed this book, I might not read it again but I would definitely recommend it to others.

3 stars – This story was good but either forgettable or just very typical of its genre.

2 stars – Whilst the book was readable I either didn’t enjoy parts of the plot or just could not connect to the main characters.

1 star – This is a book I simply could not finish for reasons listed in the review.

MADNESS (Sinister Fairy Tale Collection)

MY REVIEW – 3.75 stars

Curioser and curioser indeed

This is a retelling of Alice in Wonderland and boy do you descend into Madness as you fall down the rabbit hole. It’s just as odd as the original both in the characters who inhabit it’s pages and in the reality of what is happening. At times is was somewhat esoteric, though still utterly captivating and enthralling.

Madness is a RH but, whilst I could see the chemistry between the different characters, I didn’t feel an emotional investment in them. This was more due to the style of the book, where the prose was often reminiscent of what I imagine a drug induced psychodelic trip would be like. That is an intentional move by the author, a very successful attempt to mimic the original story whilst also making it a very dark, steamy, adult version of Alice in Wonderland.

It’s a strange read where I sort of knew what was happening but didn’t really know. Even at the end, where many things are revealed and resolved, there is still an element of the unknown, an option to intepret as you please. A different read, dare I say a mind-blowing read? A great addition to the series.

As a starry-eyed child, I wanted to believe my shining prince would ride up on a white horse, present a diamond ring, and carry me away to his castle. His love would be endless and our lives would be the happily ever after all girls dreamed about. I never knew the fairytale was nothing more than a lie.

I was a good girl.

Until one night, one tiny trip, one little mistake, one moment of indiscretion. 

When I fell down the rabbit hole, I stumbled into the absolute fantasy, succumbing to their whims and rituals. As their very naughty girl, I embraced the nightmare and refused to ever leave.

The Darkland is mine. 

And those monsters will kneel before their one true Queen.

Rutger (Beast Horde #2)
by Cari Silverwood

Vincent barreled past her, his billowing red satin robe making him resemble a sumo wrestler with a skin problem. She prayed he wore underwear beneath that.

Cyn, Vargr Beast Horde #2

I love me a good horny horned beaster…..

Hot, dirty, wicked, filthy, depraved, witty and snarky, all tied up (or should that be bound) with whatever chains, rope or suitable material is to hand. Rutger continues the story of Cyn and her two beasters, with the same great world building, crazy pop culture references, perverted sex scenes and brilliant fast-paced plot that we found in Vargr.

The story telling is outstandingly amazing, I never expect anything less from Cari Silverwood truth be told. Her characters are so believable, but more than that they say/think exactly the same thoughts that pop into my head as the plot unfolds. Her writing keeps me gripped from start to finish and never ceases to amaze me with it’s ingenuity, it’s uniqueness and it’s sheer brilliance.

There are so many massively signposted easter eggs, but try as I might my poor brain couldn’t interpret them until the end, when I had one of those huge “oh my word, now I get it and I’m embarrassed because it’s now so obvious” moments. My advice is to pay attention to anything red. 😉 It’s also one of the most brilliant plot twists (devices?) I’ve read in a long time, coming from so far out of the left field that it took me totally by surprise.

We fell in love with Vargr in the last book, for me Rutger really got a chance to shine in this one. As another wise reader mentioned (I’m looking at you Gabriela!) this pair are “both sides of the same coin”. Cut from the same cloth but sewn together in slightly different ways. Vargr is quieter, more restrained and deep thinking, which can make him appear a little remote, Rutger is more open, more free in his emotions, less repressed and seems to just “get” Cyn. However both of them have a seriously kinky streak, that also runs (slightly?) on the gleefully sadistic side. Which is fantastic because it leads to some very, very scorchingly hot sexy times.

I’m now waiting very impatiently for the last book, Cyn.

Five star rating – shiny golden stars

Amazon CA – https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B081B1P3FZ
Amazon AU – https://www.amazon.com.au/dp/B081B1P3FZ

A post-apocalyptic romance.

The Ghoul Lords threaten the extermination of all humankind and much of our world has been destroyed. There will be love, death, and dirty, messy sex among the ruins.

Sex is what keeps a girl like Cyn from going insane with the blossoming light of dawn, for daylight brings the Lure.

A brutal act by Cyn tore apart the lovers and now she must make amends. She’s going to need her well-muscled beaster males to rein her in, pin her down, and make sure she shoots in the right direction.

Gather your weapons. It’s time to descend to Ground Level and find Big Daddy, the research vehicle lost during the invasion. Within must lie the truth of the Maelstrom experiment.

What she and the beasters were created from will determine the fate of our world.

Contains rough, intense sexual scenes.
This is not a standalone romance and the previous book, Vargr, must be read first.

5 stars – This is a book I will not forget and would definitely read again.

4 stars – I really enjoyed this book, I might not read it again but I would definitely recommend it to others.

3 stars – This story was good but either forgettable or just very typical of its genre.

ATLAS (Cultivated #2)
by Elin Peer


One of the things I really love about this author’s work is that you get so much more than just a love story. Her characters are multi-faceted and have incredible depth, so much so that you feel as though they might step off the page and into your life. The plots are always amazing, avoiding all the usual cliches yet complex and thought provoking too.

Atlas is such a conflicted character, ashamed of his sexually dominant nature, convinced he’s inherited psychopathic tendencies from his father. Jolene is a wonderfully strong and determined heroine, so very real in her actions and reactions. Atlas is haunted by his past, Jolene is hunted by a very real present day threat. The question is can this unlikely pair overcome the barriers they have placed between themselves.

I found myself emotionally invested in the characters and their story, found myself caring about their lives, hopes and dreams. With several different plot strands that cleverly weave together into a rich tapestry, Atlas is one fabulous, well written, and incredibly captivating read.

Is there a place for a man with a troubled past and a dark psyche?

Warning: Don’t pick up this book unless you have the capacity to embrace the imperfect and see light in the darkness.
It’s not a sweet romance, but it does have a satisfying end.

This book dives into the darkest corners of Atlas’ mind. He’s the son of a cult leader and battles some serious inner demons.

There were darling readers in my review team who couldn’t stomach his dominant nature or the fact that we get to see what his father did that disgusted Atlas so much. That scene was important though, because it shows why Atlas’ biggest fear is that he’s just like his father.

People think that I’m a nice guy.
They’re wrong!
What they see is the polished, non-threatening, good guy that I want them to see.
It helps distract them from the darkness within me.
No one can know that I have a sick mind like my dad, the infamous monster from the Red Manor Cult.
Except, unlike him, I suppress my urge to dominate, hurt, and control.
Every day, I tell myself that I’m NOT my father; that I’m a better man.
But after Jolene began working for me, my control is slipping.
It feels like there’s a wolf inside me, stirring, growling, and pushing to get to Jolene. The fantasies of the disturbing things the wolf wants to do to her, haunts me.
I can’t allow the wolf to get control over me… or Jolene!

**This is not a stand-alone. You must read Charlie(Cultivated #1) first.

Having yet again over committed on arc reading, severely neglecting my huge TBR pile and losing my reading mojo at times, I’ve reached a burn out point. I’ve got a few reviews I can share over the next week but I’m also going to be dropping in some promo posts along the way. The first is for a fellow Brit, Lewis Mountford, who has a new audio release out.
