CYN (Beast Horde #3) by Cari Silverwood






Cute but psycho indeed!

Humans kissed things better. A demon girl needed to kill things to make everything better.

Cyn

Cyn is the third and final instalment of this tale of Beasters, Ghoul Lords and nanites. And what a story it is, filled with exciting exploits, bemusing bots and deadly demons. It kicks off with further shocking discoveries, including the fate of both Willow and her lover Mads. Next, it hurtles along with the pace and determination of a runaway express train, ploughing through what most would consider ‘nice’ and ‘polite’ and leaving devastation in it’s wake. Let’s face it though, Cyn, Rutger and Vargr are never going to be nice and polite, nor we wouldn’t want them to be.

Whilst no-one in their right mind would EVER call the author’s work comedy, she does imbue her books with humour and tongue-in-cheek pop culture references. And they are such clever little touches, often thought provoking and frequently providing both extra layers and depth. There is so much foreshadowing too, when I re-read her books I find myself constantly wondering how I’d missed such obvious clues, easter eggs and signposts. Yet there is NEVER anything typical, predictable or cliched about her work. In fact Cari Silverwood has a fairly unique literary ‘voice’, one that makes so many other authors seem pale by comparison.

It must be close to seven PM now, in old pre-invasion time. Or would it be six? There’d been daylight saving back then, and time zones, and other shit that no longer mattered.
It was Beaster Time, when the Ghoul Lords feared to tread.




On to Cyn and her two Beaster warriors …..hmmmmm, so dark, dirty and sexy as all hell. This trio are just so perfect, each adding their own little spin to the dynamic. Fitting together perfectly and loving each other uniquely. There are more incredibly hot, naughty and definitely perverted sexy times too. I’ll never look at a beer bottle the same way again.

If this was Fetlife or Facebook, she’d have to write in the relationship box: Complicated.

Cyn



The book is also full of great and inspiring speeches, involving ashtrays, hood ornaments and bots keeping your soul safe (I didn’t cry at that one, you did). It was packed with great thoughts on osmosis, build-a-bear, dwarves and their beards and feeling grumpy. Then there were all the little finishing touches like fair-haired bobble heads in blue suits, Dali paintings and tentacles.

Cyn faces some incredibly tough choices in this book, choices that might change her beyond all recognition, changes that might damn her soul forever. Will she rise to the challenge, can Rutger and Vargr keep her safe and when she encounters someone she once cared for will she make the right decisions?

“I might get nasty. I wish I knew for sure if I could keep being human, I want to still be me.”
Was she whining to the little bot? Yes, she was.
“I can help you, Cyn. Please. I will tell you if you are nasty.”

Cyn and Mo


There is so much packed into this book it felt as though I’d read a whole series by the end of it. You can’t afford to let your focus drift for even a second, every word, action and observation has meaning.

You do need to have read Vargr and Rutger , in that order, first. This is not a stand alone read and will not make sense if you try and read it as such.

There were probably worse side-effects one could have. Death, for example.





They are legends and myths made flesh and bone.

Cyn, Vargr, Rutger, and the beast horde know what they are and where they came from, and the source of their experimental DNA is both mind-blowing and frightening.

Yet one of the three is wracked by monstrous changes.

As for the Ghoul Lords… their eyes are slowly opening, for the beasters are their first worthwhile foe for thousands of years.

Will Cyn, her lovers, and the beast horde be enough to save humankind?

This apocalypse should be a whole lotta filthy, violent, and smutty fun.

All of this trilogy is now published.






CYN is here!

Exquisite Possession (The Machinery of Desire, #4)


Exquisite Possession 
(The Machinery of Desire, #4)

by Cari Silverwood


I’m featuring a ‘blast from the past’ review today. Cari Silverwood is, without a shadow of a doubt, my favourite author to read. I just adore her unusual mix of sarcastic humour, filthy depraved kink and incredible sci-fi.

It’s difficult to compare her work to another authors – she has such a unique voice. However the best I can do is say Douglas Adams but with dub-con, whips and bondage sex! There are also times when she is clearly channeling the spirit of the dearly missed Terry Pratchett.

There quite simply isn’t another author who can make me snigger at her subtle wit, get very hot under the collar (whilst also occasionally cringing in terror) at her kinky sex scenes and stand in awe of her superlative world building skills.








Fast paced, filthy, funny, frenzied and fabulous. An exciting, humorous and often thought provoking conclusion to this epic series.


I’m probably (OK definitely) going to take a while to get to the crux of this review, so I’m going to lay down now how much I LOVED this book, how gripping the story was, how fabulous the characters were, how hot the sex was and how sad I am that the series has ended. Whilst this can be read as JI and Fern’s stand alone story, reading the series will give you a better understanding of where all the other characters fit, along with how and why certain events happen.

I fuck therefore I am. He would rewrite Emery’s ideas on what made a self-aware AI.

JI/Osta, Exquisite Possession


Acquired Possession , book #1 of the Machinery of Desire series was my first ever Cari Silverwood read. (Actually that’s a slight fib, My Romance Curse was the first but since that was written on a whim and a dare I’m not counting it here.) I saw adverts for that book, downloaded a sample and immediately 1-clicked to purchase the book as soon as I got to the end of the sample. I haven’t looked back since – I’m still not sure if that’s a good or a bad thing 😉

“Girl,” he sucked in air. “This was my best idea. I hope you and Aunt M have a better one.”
Now to return to feeling lost and despairing.
It seemed late in life to take up biting his nails.

JI/Osta, Exquisite Possession


Each book in the series has brought something new to the story of Aerthe and it’s inhabitants. Each tale has opened our eyes to a new facet of what life is like for its people. They’ve also contained some downright filthy and perverted sex scenes, and boy are they wonderful to read. Now normally I’d be bleating on about the amazing world building skills of the author, but in Exquisite Possession she took things in a different direction. We had a story that looked inwards at what makes us human and what constitutes a good or a bad person, rather than focusing on the outwards.

Still learning how to human … Some days he seemed a cross between her perfect Dom and a teenager.

JI/Osta and Fern, Exquisite Possession



JI/Osta was a mechanoid, a sentient robot for want of a better description. He took over a ‘human’ body (or technically a Scav body) in Book 2 of the series. Fern is a human, dragged through time and space, otherwise known as a portal, to become a blood slave to the Mekkers. Only Fern stabbed the judge who ruled that they weren’t ‘sentient’ enough to have rights and ended up being ejected from their landship broken, battered, bruised and close to death. So it’s fair to say that both characters come with a fair bit of baggage.

The first part of this book focuses on JI and his battles with the fantasies he has about Fern. Fantasies that include pain, humiliation and domination. Fantasies that just perhaps Fern might have too.

With a thrill to top what already had grabbed his balls … he realized Fern could be his experiment. His little experiment on sex.
Little being more due to her size compared to his, not to what was possible. Because there was 
everything. Possibilities seemed endless. He, an ex-mech with control of a girl.

JI/Osta, Exquisite Possession



JI goes through a lot of soul searching, but it never felt too introspective or naval gazing. Usually because CS would always drop in some of her wonderful humour when things started getting a little too serious.

“I would never hurt you more than you want,”

JI/Osta, Exquisite Possession



This was much more of a love story than any of the other books, possibly with the exception of Blue and Sassik’s story. It still retained dark edges and some very extremely kinky play, some of which involved the surgical implantation of blunt spikes around a part of JI’s anatomy. However JI was always far too caring to ever truly be a bad man, and given Fern’s traumatic past he was the perfect hero for both her and us. That didn’t stop him from using the connection both he and Fern had with the mechlings to his own benefit.

“Is a part of you still Osta? The thinking part of you?”
“No. I’m not him at all. I told you that.”
He wanted to ask her if that would scare her more than she could bear but didn’t dare to. Because the answer might scare him.

JI/Osta and Fern, Exquisite Possession



The second part of the story is more ‘traditional’ sci-fi action, if being strung up naked on the nose cone of a war ship, your body pierced by countless wires, could ever be considered traditional. Like all truly great books, lots of strands and easter egg clues all wove together to bring a very satisfying ending to this amazing series. Did I also mention that there is a lot of very hot, kinky and lust filled sex?

BEASTE HORDE #2

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.

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.

4 STARS – BOUND


IT’S TIME TO GET BOUND!

Bound By Fate by USA Today bestselling author Maddie Taylor IS LIVE!

A fantastic start to this spin of series – 4 STARS

If you read Maddie Taylor’s Barbarian Mates series, you will already have (briefly) met Beck and Adria. You don’t need to have read those books to enjoy this one, though they do give a little more background/insight into Terra Nova and why it is so important. Whilst Bound by Fate is most definitely a stand alone read, there is a story arc/mystery/peril that will continue into future books.

I loved that this had all the wonderful world building of the BM series, whilst also very much having it’s own plot and feel. I had wondered if Beck would assume a more Primarian demeanour but he was very much an equal rights and consensual-in-all-things human male. And what a hot, sexy male he is, Adria is one lucky girl.

Both main characters are not only likeable but very natural and easy to relate to. Despite being set on an alien world their story felt so utterly believable. Amid all the intrigue, peril, purple skies and colonisation of a planet this was, at heart, a beautiful and finely crafted tale of love. It was so easy to believe in the passion between Beck and Adria, to accept and feel their emotions and love.

The execution of the story is excellent, the plot flows smoothly and is easy to follow, the dialogue is natural, the pace is quick enough to hold your attention but also allows time to explore things in depth. I am only to happy to recommend Bound by Fate to those who love a well written romance and enjoy stories with a sci-fi setting.

BLURB:

After years of study, Adria is on the verge of becoming the first female physic in Primarian history. A string of mysterious incidents has the entire Terra Nova Colony on edge, but she isn’t going to let that stand in her way and neither is Beckett Kincaid. Gorgeous, bossy, and infuriating, she thought Beck was her friend. Given what they shared, he could have been so much more. But the domineering owner of BRK Construction betrays her trust. And when Adria is sent home, delaying her dreams, if not completely dashing them, she isn’t sure she can ever forgive him.

When she’s permitted to return to the colony to complete her training, the first order of business is finding Beck, clearing the air, and finishing what they started. But after saying things in anger she now regrets, is it too late for them? Adria barely sets foot on Terra Nova when trouble finds her again. It seems the evil infecting the colony is more sinister than anyone could have imagined.

Drawn to her by otherworldly forces he can’t explain, Beck is intent on protecting Adria no matter the cost, even if it means risking his once shattered heart. With intrigue and danger swirling around them, can they defeat the insidious threat plaguing the budding colony, and with their Primarian allies’ help, preserve the only hope for his people’s survival?

ENJOY THIS STEAMY EXCERPT!!!

“We both said things we regret.”

She blinked up at him. “You did? What, for instance?”

“The part about being splattered on the pavement.”

“That was rather graphic.” A shudder passed through her. “Anything else? What about the spanking part?”

“Hm… I’m not a spanking kind of man. Although, if it happens again, whether tomorrow or the next day, or the one after that, you better believe I’ll put you over my knee.”

“Beck!”

Further protests were smothered by his lips when he swooped in for another kiss. It was just like the first time his lips touched hers–deep, smoldering-hot, and intense. It went on for a while. So long, in fact, that when he pulled away, she was a little swimmy-headed and gasping for air.

“You haven’t learned to breathe through your nose yet,” he observed.

“I guess I need more practice,” she returned, tugging his head as she raised hers, trying to get him to kiss her again.

“What do you regret, Adri?”

She blinked at this sudden shift in focus. “Excuse me?”

“I told you my regret. Now it’s your turn.”

It took her a moment, not to think of an answer, but to find the right words.

“When I said I didn’t need you. That was a lie, Beck. I’ve come to care about you, too.” She strained upward and, with her lips brushing his, whispered urgently, “And not just as a friend.”

His hand moved from her throat to her chest and lower until he claimed a breast. When his thumb swept over the nipple, she arched, seeking more.

“Are you sure about this? Once we go down this road, it changes what we are, and it’s hard to go back.”

“I’m sure. I’m tired of waiting and aching for you.” She shifted her legs further apart, allowing his thigh to fall through and press more firmly against her needy center.

It wasn’t enough for Beck, who caught her behind the knee and pushed it higher, until she could hook her leg around his hip. The rough denim-covered bulge rubbed intimately over her sex—bare beneath her short nightgown—and sent a rush of wetness to her center.

His hand left her breast and moved slowly down her belly. Knowing where he planned to touch next, Adria held her breath as her belly quivered in anticipation. A series of shrill beeps froze them both. When it repeated only seconds later, Beck muttered an oath.

His hand that had been so close to touching her there left her and angled around to his rear pocket. After he slid out his communicator and glanced at the screen, he bit out an even more vehement expletive. “Fuck!”

“Trouble?”

“Yeah.” He dropped his forehead to hers again. “I gotta go.”

“Of course,” she breathed, although it was the last thing in the universe she wanted.

Deliverance

Deliverance (The 1000 Revolution #5) by Pippa DaCosta

This book, boy this book not only entertained but tore my heart to pieces SO MANY TIMES!

I didn’t realise just how much I’d missed Caleb, One, Bren and Fran until I started reading this. Those guys just grab a hold of your heart and hold it hostage. Squeezing it every now and then to ensure you remember just how much you love them all. It left me alternately exhilarated, emotionally drained, electrified, crushed and hopeful. The writing is excellent and left me needing more.

I crouched in front of her and took her warm hand in mine.

“It’s all right. A friend of mine once told me, when you get scared, just count the stars and the fear will go away.”

One, Deliverance

How could you make me fall in love with Josie and Patrick (two side characters) and then do that? You evil author! Even if you patched my heart back up later I still don’t forgive you. The twists, the turns, the bluffs, double bluffs and is it a bluffs had me mesmerised and on the edge of my seat. I couldn’t turn the pages quickly enough and adored every single moment of reading this book, never wanting it to end.

“You ever see a button you just gotta press?”


“No, which is why women live longer than men,” Fran bend down and frowned.

Caleb and Fran, Deliverance

This could be read as a stand alone story, though reading the rest of the 1000 Revolution books would enhance the experience. They are also AMAZING stories and well worth reading. I simply cannot adequately put into words how brilliant this book is.

ALL THE STARS!

“Que te folle un pez.”


I had no idea what that meant, but I liked how it sounded.

Fran and Caleb, Deliverance

BLURB

“You can’t say no to a pistol in the face.” ~ Caleb

Bren’s missing with a bounty on his head, which isn’t Caleb’s problem, until Turner Candelario makes it Caleb’s problem. But why does a pirate with an ax to grind suddenly want to work with the down-and-out captain who killed his sister?

Coded messages. Abandoned mining outposts. And Fran’s keeping secrets.

The mission stinks worse than the iron mines, but what else is there to do in the Nine systems now Caleb’s trying to fly-right? Besides, Bren’s bounty looks mighty tempting.

One should be dead, but death didn’t stop her before. Chitec is gone, the Nine systems left in disarray, and in the chaos, One moves among them like a ghost, seeing what others cannot: a new malevolent force rises. A force One has encountered before. And caught in the middle of it all? Brendan Shepperd.

Chitec was just the beginning. The true 1000 Revolution begins now…

PRIMARIAN MATES #4

Defying the General (Primarian Mates, #4) by Maddie Taylor


I’m hoping this isn’t the last we see of Primaria, Terra Nova and their inhabitants.

If you’re looking for a well written, captivating sci-fi romance that has a fast paced and layered plot then look no further. Whilst each Primarian Mates book can be read stand alone, they are all amazing reads and you will get the best from them by reading them in order.

I’m not sure if Lana and Trask have replaced Eryn and Ram as my favourite book couple – it’s definitely a close run thing. This story will take you across the whole gamut of emotions, from love to sorrow to pain to happiness, high to low and back again. It is also so much more than just the romance aspect too. Each book has a complex story involving both the main couple, other characters and the worlds around them, plus stands that weave into the back story that runs throughout all four books.

These are long books – well over 5 hours of reading time, and I loved every single minute of them. The characters are engaging, likeable and easy to connect with, the writing draws you into the book in a way that makes you never want to leave. Whilst I was desperate to complete the book and find out what happens with Lana, Trask and the others, I also wanted it to take forever because I so loved being immersed in this amazing world Maddie Taylor has created.

I can’t recommend this fantastic series enough, though I’m hoping the fact that I’ve read all 4 books back-to-back tells you everything you need to know.

PRIMARIAN MATES #3

HIS REBELLIOUS MATE by Maddie Taylor


Eryn and Ram are my new favourite book couple.

Whilst all these stories can be read stand alone, I do recommend reading the whole series, both for the story arc and the sheer wonderfulness of them. This story just had so much going on, I had wondered how we’d find out some of what happened during Eryn’s time with Ram on Primaria. I’m not going to say how we find out that story, but it was both inspired and, if not unique, at least very unusual. And it worked so incredibly well.

It felt like we had a lot more of Erin’s perspective in this book, and I absolutely adored her. The scenes following their reuniting on Earth were truly heart wrenching and even brought me to tears at times. However the book doesn’t end there, oh no, the author built a truly layered story that was full of emotion and intrigue. She wrote two amazing main characters in Ram and Eryn, and it was great to find out more about Lana and Trask too.


This series is so much better than many of the sci-fi romances out there and I highly recommend it.

SYNOPSIS

Staunchly loyal Eryn Lockwood heads up security on the USIF Odyssey, an all-female research ship charged with finding a new world to call home. Her team is guarding a group of scientists exploring an uninhabited planet when they are set upon by a band of powerful alien warriors. Entranced by Eryn’s long auburn hair, fair skin, and green eyes, the fiercest of the attackers gives chase, and claims her for his own. Though passion ignites between them, she remains steadfast in her need to escape. 

To fulfill her mission and save her people, she commits an unpardonable act, something she’ll never forget…and he can never forgive. Returning to Earth, she attempts to pick up the pieces of her life, but thoughts of her gorgeous, golden-eyed alien consume her. 

Master Warrior Ramikin, the biggest, baddest, and most skilled fighter on Primaria, has never been bested—until now! And by the beautiful Earth woman destined to be his! Furious, he lets her go, resolved to eradicate her from his thoughts. But Eryn’s face haunts his dreams, and he lives every day yearning for what can never be.

An alliance between their worlds thrusts them back together, but not everyone is in favor of mingling their two species. When harassment by anti-integration zealots turns violent, Ram races to her rescue, but he is seconds too late. With her life hanging by a thread, the deep, mate-bond between them becomes clear. 

Is there hope for the independent, rebellious soldier and the proud warrior she betrayed? Can he bring himself to forgive her? Will they be able to put aside the past and come together to fight those who would tear them apart? And, as they accept their fate, can Eryn and Ram rekindle the spark they once shared?
