Review //\\ Black Light: Valentine Roulette

Black Light: Valentine Roulette

This is an anthology of short stories, all based around one event at the BDSM club featured in the Black Light series. I read the book back in 2018 but didn’t review it back then, and since I seem to be an a re-read streak I indulged myself by reading individual stories in between arc reads and other reads. Even though I have a mountainous TBR list of unread books.

Broken by Renee Rose – 4 stars

Slave to pain (aka Jennifer) and Master D scene together at Black Light each week. But that’s all Jennifer will ever allow them to be, ships that pass in the night, no attachment, no emotion, no connection, despite the fact that his brand of sadism is a perfect fit for her mile wide masochistic streak. Jennifer has barriers so high Master D will need a miracle to break them down but first he needs to win her on a spin of the wheel.

They spin three kinks, age-play, whipping and anal-intercourse. Don’t be put of by the age play, it isn’t really any more than her using the word Daddy, and if you skip this one you will miss a wonderfully intimate portrait of a man using dominance to release a sub from years of unhappiness and pain.
I liked that Jennifer and Master D already had a connection, it made the scenes more intense and I found I easily believed in the depth of their feelings. I remember first time round finding the level of sado-masochism in this hard to handle, but I’ve now read so much more that it no longer makes me cringe. It’s not my kink but I understand the beauty of the dynamic. This is one scorching hot read, and a great opening story.

Revealed by Livia Grant – 3.5 stars

I love Khloe and Ryder, and have read all their stories though I’d actually forgotten this one where they first met. I really felt a huge emotional connection to Khloe, reading about her pain and loneliness was like hearing it from a friend. The girl who seems to have it all has nothing at all. Her emotions were heartbreaking to read about.

There is some intense medical play, plus two other spins that gave us some scorching hot scenes to observe. My only issue at the end was that Ryder’s play felt far too hard core for a total newbie to the scene to handle. It was addressed at one point, and yes this is fiction, so perhaps others found it easier to let go. Personally it felt that, along with boundaries being severely pushed, believability was also being pushed too.

However this was more than made up for with the intensity of the connection between Khloe and Ryder. He went from zero to hero during the story, with the way he saw the true Khloe and what she needed. Though that ending is quite tough. If I hadn’t been aware of what the future had in store for this pair it would really have been a bitter pill to swallow. Thankfully it’s very much a sugar-coated one.

Wet by Jennifer Bene – 5 stars

Sienna so beautifully portrayed the lack of worth those of us with self esteem issues can suffer from. A sub willing to forego aftercare and any real affection because she wasn’t worthy of it. Alexander, of course, was the uber confident and in charge Dom with a liking to be called Daddy and a craving to push his sub’s buttons. Written so well, he induced shivers down my spine.

Ms Bene pushes our boundaries, and poor Sienna’s, with a terror inducing scene of water-based breath play. As someone who struggles to get their face wet in the shower, this both horrified and thrilled me in equal measure. It was certainly hot. Communication is vital to any BDSM scenes, so Alexander was determined to push until the very tongue tied and shy Sienna let go and talked. I can totally empathise with her when she struggled with answering his questions

There was no script for this interaction, no easy answers, she had to fucking talk to him, and that was the problem.

You either know, or you don’t know, that terrifying hot-cold feeling of opening your mouth and having a totally blank, panic filled mind. Because whatever you could say they will obviously find boring and not be interested in. It was both hard to read Sienna in those moments and uplifting too. I love that the author gives her characters real flaws that resonate with many readers.

Given that the majority of this scene wasn’t overtly sexual in nature I was amazed by how incredibly intimate it felt. A part of me did feel that Alexander overstepped the boundaries in demanding personal information from someone who he had no long term commitment with, but without it we wouldn’t have had such an amazing story.

Unmasked by Lee Savino – 2.5 stars

Whilst this story didn’t have quite the emotional or ‘kink’ impact of other stories in the book, I appreciated how it examined the feminists dilemma of submitting to a man. Chessie and Kane were both easy to like characters, though neither really captured my heart if I’m being honest.

Kane did seem to take extra care with Chessie since she was yet another “totally new to the scene and never tried it before” submissive. However I would have liked him to remind Chessie of her safeword/signal given that very fact. I also felt the ‘nasty/jealous sub’ moment was not only cliched but fed into that cliche of having to have a rival and bitchy female in the story.

Unraveled by Addison Cain – 2 stars

This was one of those books that I enjoyed well enough as I read it, but mental cogitations after the fact saw it mimic the title and unravel somewhat. The ‘hero’ of the story not only isn’t the Dom that the heroine plays Valentine Roulette with, but their relationship prior to the night had been toxic. So it made believing that they had any sort of feelings for one another very difficult. All three characters also had personality defects, and not in a good way.

Klara was brilliant in that she had taken on huge responsibilities at a very young age. She was so tough and strong, when life kicked her in the lady balls she pulled up her big girl pants and kicked it back twice as hard. So it made my wonder why she would burn her bridges by not giving adequate notice to her employer. Nor did I believe that employer held enough sway to get her blacklisted by his competitors.

For an ex-military man, Spencer was a childish, whiney bottom-hole whose behaviour was as far from professional as it was possible to get. Self-centred to the nth degree he didn’t deserve Klara in any way shape or form.

And Will, I kind of liked him until their last scene where he deliberately pushed Klara beyond her breaking point, despite knowing she was totally inexperienced and that she was unlikely to safe word until he took things to the extreme. He even acknowledge that the play wasn’t ‘sane’ because Klara had felt forced into taking part. He knew that and still continued. He also knew, from the previous scene, where her breaking point was and he stomped right over it. At that point I wasn’t sure who was the most despicable male, him or Spencer. The only way either man would ever get any sympathy from me was if I threw a dictionary at their conceited, idiotic heads.

Unbroken by Maren Smith – 3 stars

This story is less about the BDSM play and much more about the two protagonists, Abby and Newton, connecting. This really left me in a quandary because I loved the depth it gave the story, and you could really see not only the characters grow but also the fledgling connection start to bloom. However it meant, for me, that it lacked that sizzle that I want from a BlackLight book but overall the pros and cons are balanced.

I did like both characters and enjoyed the story, it was also a nice change of pace to give the book some balance. Extra points were earned for the pair NOT being madly in love with one another at the end of the story!

Bared by Measha Stone – 4 stars

I’m a real sucker for second chance, so this was already going well with me. Add into the mix a heroine who hid her vulnerabilities behind a hard as nails exterior and an amazing Dom who was determined not to let her run away a second time, and you’ve got yourself a winner.

They spin humiliation, but don’t worry, it never felt too much or too over the top. In fact it was very gentle in those terms. However Dane does lay bare all of Riley’s insecurities and fears, pushing her to truly accept her submissive nature. Yes he pushes her, and pushes her hard, but he is there every single step of the way, ready to catch her should she fall and always, always giving her the strength and support she needs.

When Dane got Riley to wash the word she wrote about herself off of her arm, I wasn’t sure whether to sob or swoon.

Stripped by Sophie Kisker – 3.5 stars

I really enjoyed this story, though it did stir a bit of conflict inside me. I admired that Sari made the decision she did (in the bathroom) though I could equally understand why Adam was upset by it. I didn’t agree with his “special” comment, that’s a very male perpetuation of a problem that has been around for a long time.

I felt we spent more time in Sari’s mind during the story, which was great because the author really showed us what some peoples submission looked like. I found her thought process and decisions to be fascinating and enlightening. It wasn’t the steamiest offering in the book but it was a well written and very entertaining story.

REVIEW //\\ Black Light: Charmed


Black Light: Charmed (Black Light #15) By Jennifer Bene


Published by Black Collar Press



Release Date:  April 20, 2020

Cover Design by: Eris Adderly

Go Live Price: 4.99

Genre: Contemporary BDSM 


He’d waited days to touch her again, and the little brat had taunted him all night with her sass, and then teased him in the car. All he wanted was to hear her whimper and moan, to feel her come again. 




Brilliant, no other words needed.


We are so used to JB writing dark stories, and this didn’t have an ounce of darkness to it but oh boy was it everything I wanted and more. The story of a lonely, broken guy who doesn’t even realise it until too late, and the smart, sassy, strong woman who lights his path to redemption. This pair captivated me with their story, it really is an “I can’t put it down” book, along with being an “it made me cry” one, too. The growth this pair go through, particularly Logan, and they way in which they support each other gave me all the feels, not to mention just how much it made me happy sigh.


And I loved, bloody loved, how the author turned things on their head in Charmed. So many tropes and cliches were upended, giving us a book that felt so very different to the norm. BDSM romances can get very ‘samey’, but she took the rule book, tore it up, scattered the pieces to the wind and created a story that will stay with me for a long time. One where the rich, older Dom didn’t really have a clue about life and it was the young, light-hearted submissive who taught him how to live and love.


Once we peeled away the layers and found the truth of Logan my heart broke for him. His upbringing had left him alone, friendless, unable to appreciate or indeed enjoy the life he had. The first step in recovery is admitting you have a problem and boy did it take Logan a long time, and a huge mistake, to reach that point of acknowledgement. Yet despite him clearly being an absolute a-hole at times he was also incredibly charming and sweet. He was worth saving and Cassandra was the prefect girl to do that.


The world would definitely be a better place if we all channeled a little more Cassandra into our lives. Her whole ethos and outlook on life is amazing and I totally fell in love with her character. Even her bratty submissive side felt warm and caring! She stood her ground over things she believed in and I wish I had a fraction of her confidence and a chunk of her ability to find the joy in life.


This pair were explosive together and we are treated to some wonderful scenes of them (in all meanings of the word). I know without a shadow of a doubt that this will be hugely popular with fans of the Black Light series, it’s far to amazing too be anything else. I also happily recommend it to anyone who enjoys a captivating, full of feels, BDSM romance.


OMG I almost forgot to mention the ending – oh boy the ending. It’s so NOT JB‘s usual style but it soooo fitted the book and the characters. It’s even a little cheesy in that wonderful romance way but it was also perfect. And heartwarming. And panty melting. And more happy sigh inducing. Loved it all.





Blurb:

Cassandra is everything I’m not. Kind, warm, optimistic… happy.

If I was less of a selfish prick, I’d walk away. But I can’t.

It was supposed to be one night of fun, but ten months after Valentine Roulette he can’t get the feisty model out of his head. She’s invaded his dreams, ruined every session at Black Light, and it’s been four months since she even returned a text.

This isn’t him.

Logan Chisholm doesn’t obsess over women. 

He doesn’t replay every sweet cry he drew from their lips, doesn’t remember the way their smile changes when they laugh, but Cassandra Moreira is different.

He has to figure out if their chemistry was real… or just part of the game.

Luckily, Christmas has come early this year, because she’s back in L.A. and he’s not letting her leave again without getting a second date.

And this time he won’t take no for an answer.

“You ready for this?”
“For you to finally get started?” she purred, grinning. “Yeah, I’m ready.”
“Naughty girl,” he growled, pumping all three fingers inside her harder. Cassandra’s hands turned into fists, and he knew that was as unconscious as her toes curling. “You better start calling me ‘sir’ or I’m gonna make this hurt.”

“Promises, promises,” she said through a groan, and he pushed in all the way to the knuckle, feeling the way her body resisted, and although he knew he needed to grab a glove and the lube from his bag, he just wanted this for a minute longer. The DMs couldn’t fault him for enjoying being inside her the first time, and if Cassandra Moreira was as fantastic as she seemed to be, he promised himself it wouldn’t be the last. Not by a long shot.

Stunning smile from beautiful woman, portrait






“Let me lay out the ground rules for tonight, my little brat.”

“I am not—” she started to argue, and he cut her off with another hard smack of his palm, immediately adding a matching one to the other cheek.

“Every time you act like a brat, I’m going to make you suffer a little longer. Each time you forget to call me sir, you’re going to wish you hadn’t.” Smack. “And whenever you think about being disobedient, remember that it was your choice to come to Black Light tonight. You chose this over dinner.”

The next three spanks he added in quick succession, feeling the burn building in his hand as he focused each one on top of previous swats. Her hips wiggled over his lap, a sweet little sound slipping past her lips before she laughed. Propping herself up on her elbow, Cassandra twisted to look back at him. “Do you hear me complaining, sir?”

“I swear…” Logan landed the next one directly on her sit spot, concentrating there to punctuate each of his words with hard swats. “You. Are. Such. A. Brat.”

She squirmed against him, waking his cock up all the way as she let out a satisfied little groan that almost sounded like a purr. “If this is how you treat brats, sir, then call me whatever you want.”

Biting back his smile, he grabbed a handful of her ass and squeezed, reveling in the heat as he added up the spanks in his head. Fourteen. Three more. Cassandra felt way too good stretched over his thighs, and if he wanted to get to what he’d planned he needed to get her off his lap.

Naughty girl.

“Oh, you’re in so much trouble,” he growled, landing another stinging swat.

REVIEW //\\ Black Light: Brave

Black Light: Brave
(Black Light #16)
by Maren Smith








Oh my word this book is a whirling maelstrom of all the feels.


I think Maren Smith has left me a little bit broken after reading, Brave. I cries so many times, so many tears, as my heart broke repeatedly for the heroine’s suffering. She may also have created the most perfect and amazing Dom in Carlson. She isn’t a little, and he isn’t a Daddy but he was as gentle, caring and nurturing as any girl could want and as the heroine definitely needed.


I don’t want to keep referring to her as Puppy, even though this is how she refers to, and thinks of, herself for a LOT of the story. However I don’t want to ruin any special moments of the book, so do forgive me for referring to the heroine as ‘her’. Puppy feels like I’m giving power to Ethen, and even though he is, in fact all of them are, fictional characters in a book, I just can’t bring myself to do it. 🤷‍♂️


Every moment of suffering, every kernel of hope, every second of joy, every tear, every smile, every touch, hug and kiss was suffused with emotion, the depths of which had me reeling. We’ve lived through Piggy and Kitty’s tales and THEY were both powerful reads but this, this one touched the very depths of my soul and to my mind is one of Maren Smith’s best works ever.


There’s actually very little BDSM play in this, and I stress the word play because it’s very much a story of domination and submission. Carlson identifies as a Dom, but acknowledges that he is more of a Head of Household, responsible for his submissive, ensuring her health and wellbeing at all times. So the BDSM aspect was more mental, more emotional, more about forging a connection and forming a bond between the Dominant and his submissive. And boy oh boy was that beautifully done.


Brave is a story of overcoming fear, learning to trust again, believing in oneself and taking control by giving up control. I highly recommend this to all those who’ve enjoyed any Black Light book, enjoy books in the BDSM genre or enjoy a well written story that is full of feels. It can be read stand alone and whilst it does mention spoilers for both previous stories (Black Light Fearless and the short story Shameless in the Roulette Redux anthology) there is enough information provided here to follow the story easily. Roll on Pony and Marcus’ story.











It started with Piggy. It escalated with Kitty. It ends with Puppy.


For almost a year, Ethen O’Dowell has been locked behind bars and yet Puppy is far from free. A legal ward of her parents, she shares her bedroom with Pony, the only part of her old, submissive life that she has left… apart from the guilt, the fear, and the weekly punishments Ethen dishes out every time they visit him. Escape is all Puppy dreams about. Escape and somehow finding the courage to once more become the person she used to be–someone who lived life on her own terms and never let herself be afraid. Sadly, those days are long over, and as the old saying goes, there’s just no getting them back again. Or is there?


It’s a dead night at Black Light when ex-military man Carlson Garvey decides all he wants is a quiet drink and some downtime to practice his Shibari. What he isn’t expecting is the petite brunette who plops down at his table, squeaks out a terrified hello, and promptly flees again. There’s a story here and although he doesn’t know it, Carlson doesn’t need to. He recognizes a broken soul when he sees one.


Sometimes the only thing a broken person needs is the right Dom willing to intervene.

Ratings
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.

Excerpt 3- (Rated R)
Puppy was a cock worshiper if ever he knew one. Her eyes damn near glazed with
pleasure just in gazing her fill. When she reached for him, she did that sexy,
mini-orgasmic shiver thing again, and then the heat of her hand closed around his shaft.
She touched the head of him to her lips, and sighed. Soft and breathy, an expression of
pure longing that quickly evolved into something much more carnal as she took that
first taste.

His cock twitched at a touch from her tongue, a pulse of lust thumping in the
ever-tightening base as her tentative taste turned into a flick, then a slow suckling kiss at
the very head of him, before the full heavenly heat of her mouth engulfed him. He
refused to think about who taught her this. Combing his fingers into her hair, he simply
closed his eyes and enjoyed the magic as she explored him. From head to shaft to balls,
she stroked him with her hands and mouth, and her delightfully wicked tongue.

This was hard to hold still for, but he did it. Pants sagging around his thighs, he stood
like a rock—so fucking hard—while she turned her mouth into a willing sheath. She
almost got her wish too. The longer it went on, the more exuberant she became and the
closer he got to that point of no return. His hands on her head became less holding and
more restraining, and the minute twitches of his hips as she bobbed on his cock
devolved into jabbing thrusts.

He couldn’t help it. She wanted him to fuck her mouth, and he was more than happy to
let her take him to that point where he was helpless to do anything but comply. She
cupped his hips, opening her mouth, relaxing her throat, willingly choking on his cock
until her eyes teared and he had to stop. He had to, or despite his earlier edict, he’d have
cum on her tongue. The thought of watching as she then sucked him dry nearly took him
to his breaking point. He quickly pulled out of her mouth instead.
“Give me your ass,” he ordered.

Genre: Contemporary BDSM 

She was ashamed, useless… helpless. She never used to be.




Blurb:

It started with Piggy. It escalated with Kitty. It ends with Puppy. 


For almost a year, Ethen O’Dowell has been locked behind bars and yet Puppy is far from free. A legal ward of her parents, she shares her bedroom with Pony, the only part of her old, submissive life that she has left… apart from the guilt, the fear, and the weekly punishments Ethen dishes out every time they visit him. Escape is all Puppy dreams about. Escape and somehow finding the courage to once more become the person she used to be–someone who lived life on her own terms and never let herself be afraid. Sadly, those days are long over, and as the old saying goes, there’s just no getting them back again. Or is there? 


It’s a dead night at Black Light when ex-military man Carlson Garvey decides all he wants is a quiet drink and some downtime to practice his Shibari. What he isn’t expecting is the petite brunette who plops down at his table, squeaks out a terrified hello, and promptly flees again. There’s a story here and although he doesn’t know it, Carlson doesn’t need to. He recognizes a broken soul when he sees one. 


Sometimes the only thing a broken person needs is the right Dom willing to intervene.

Excerpt 1 – (Rated PG)

 It was a mistake. She shouldn’t be here. The bartender knew it. Spencer certainly knew it. Was he still watching her? A quick glance over her shoulder said yes, yes he was, and any minute now she knew he was going to place a phone call to Jaxson and Chase and then she was going to be loudly, humiliatingly, irrevocably shown to the door.

“Are you okay?” Carlson asked, startling her from the terrifying direction her thoughts were forcing her to travel.

She looked up at him, nodding. “Yeah… yeah sure.”

“Are you lying to me?” he asked.

The craziest tingle ran right up her back, interrupting the shiver that had preceded it. Her breath caught all over again, but not for the same frightened reason it had before.

His tone was so soft, and yet that hint of a warning underlying each word struck her as comforting in a way that–had Ethen ever said such a thing–would not.

She shook her head, another lie.

He tipped his head, searching her face for what, she didn’t know, but when his gaze dropped from her eyes to her chest and stayed there, reluctantly, she followed the direction of his stare down to her hands. She had clapped them one over the other on top of her heart between her breasts, pushing hard as if it that desperate press were the only thing holding her together. It wasn’t her heart she was trying to keep working, though. It was her lungs. Her chest was tight; her breaths weren’t coming in right.

“Are you sure?” he asked.

She was shaking. Puppy stared down at herself, completely at a loss. She hadn’t realized how badly she was shaking until she looked down and saw it. She took her hands off her chest and stared at them, watching the wild trembling that refused to hold still.

She looked at him again, at a loss for what to say.


REVIEW – Black Light: Roulette Wars


Hot, kinky and every story brings something new and exciting to the mix.

The stage setting scenes didn’t draw me in as much as they have done in previous years, but let’s face it, we’re not really here for that. We want the scorching hot, boundary pushing scenes that each year’s contributors bring to life.

Prelude by Renee Rose – 4 stars

I thoroughly enjoyed this quite sweet but delightfully dirty encounter between bratva boss Ravil and seemingly straight-laced lawyer, Lucy, who perhaps isn’t quite as innocent as one would assume. Their scenes were both erotic and sensual, Renee Rose convinced me of how well this pair connected. It was easy to believe in their chemistry and the intense attraction between them. I liked that there were no silly declarations of love after only a few hours in each others company.

The story has clearly been written so that the author can continue it as part of her Vegas Underground series. Whilst I may well choose to read more about this couple, I would be able to leave the story as is – a wonderfully sexy night of BDSM play.



Breathless by Eris Adderly- 5+ Stars

When do we get a full length Eris Adderly Black Light book? Oh My Lord! By all that’s holy even Mother Theresa would have needed a hand free to read this smorgasboard of sexual delight. I’m telling you now – DO NOT READ THIS IN PUBLIC. Well not unless you are a massive exhibitionist and don’t mind being arrested for indecent behaviour in a public place. If hell ever freezes over we can send them a copy of this story and it will soon be back to it’s usual fiery temperature in no time at all.

Not only that but this book was packed with feels, both main characters had taken an emotional battering and the Hero had OCD type issues to boot. There is so much more to this than a couple of furnace heat level play scenes, there is character growth and a believable connection that develops between the main characters too. How Ms Adderly managed to achieve so much in such a short time I will never be able to explain, but the anthology is worth every penny of it’s cover price for this story alone.




Burn by Kay Elle Parker – 4.5 stars

I’m not going to say which kink it is, but this contained one that would be on my hard limits list! That said, the caring, respectful and sensual way Finn lead Ava through her submission was absolutely beautiful. Instead of cringing and being taken out of the moment, I found myself revelling in the connection and bond of trust that this couple forged. I have a couple of this authors books on my kindle but I haven’t actually read them yet – *hangs head in shame*. I will now be rectifying that asap.

Ava broke my heart at times, but in Finn she found not just a Dom, but a lover and potential life partner. One who would lend her strength when she was lost and give her release from the demons that haunt her soul. And it wasn’t just one sided. Finn gained just as much from the vulnerable and shattered woman as she did from him. I adored these two finely crafted and immensely likeable characters and am totally rooting for them to find their HEA together.




Inflamed by Golden Angel – 4.5 stars

It’s a Golden Angel story so you just know it’s going to contain some buttstuff, but I’m getting ahead of myself. We’ve sort of briefly met both these characters in the longer BlackLight: Defended, though you do NOT need to have read that story to enjoy this. The first time he spoke to her, Elliott was a total ass to Lisa. Regardless of BDSM protocols etc he was plain rude, which leaves Lisa needing to prove him wrong. It leads to some great battle of wills and situations.

Elliott is a sadist and that was very evident in the way he, at times, mentally tortured Lisa. There was more than one occasion when I wanted to punch him in the face. Until suddenly I not only no longer felt that impulse but actually found myself completely and utterly falling for him. I adored Lisa from the start, she might be a brat but she was a caring and loving brat, and there’s nothing wrong with curiosity and asking questions.

Whilst Golden Angel provides us with three fantastic and very sexy play scenes, the best thing about this story was seeing both Lisa and Elliott grow and adapt their thinking, allowing them to connect on a much deep level.






Wicked by Jennifer Bene – 5 stars

Let me tell you that I HATED Pierce when we first met him. His supercilious and rude attitude had me wanting to throat punch him, and when he kink-shamed Tori I could have whacked him in the nuts. And yet somehow as I read this story, somewhere along the line, I actually started to really, really like the man. He not only redeemed himself but he opened himself up to Tori in a way that had me swooning, yet he without him losing any of the sadistic, alpha Dom-ness that made him so sexy.

Tori was amazing, a strong female character that at times was vulnerable but never felt weak or insecure. She was very easy to empathise and identify with as she opened her mind (and body) to new experiences. As always, Jennifer Bene likes to torment us with edgy, boundary pushing kink scenes and this story is no different. Fantastic writing, emotional depth and character growth took what could have been ‘eww’ moments and made them very much into ‘mmm’ moments, and ‘sigh’ moments and ‘hot & bothered’ moments.






Trained by Sue Lyndon – 4 stars

This is a very sweet and gentle read, offering less in the way of hardcore kink but much more in the way of connecting with others. Xavier and Rachel were very interesting characters, both of whom had intriguing back stories. I would love to see this story extended and built on, allowing us to know more about them and see how their relationship develops and grows.

The connection between Kitten and her Daddy was very convincingly portrayed and I really appreciated how the author focused on feelings and emotional depth in this captivating story.






Unexpected by Measha Stone – 4 stars

Quinn and Jack are a great pairing, Jack sees beneath Quinn’s facade and recognises the precious gem beneath. I really enjoyed how Measha included a less popular kink but spun it in a way that made it enjoyable even for those who would normally consider it a hard limit. She also portrayed the developing connection between the characters in an very honest and believable way.

This doesn’t end with declarations of love, or life long plans, in fact it is probably one of the most real ending of the anthology, perfect for the situation and with enough of a happiness factor to satisfy even the most die-hard romantic.





Facade by Livia Grant – 4.5 stars

This book mixed some great kinky play with fantastic character building. Steph was really quiet complex and a tough nut to crack, she certainly had to be dragged into her submission. I’m not sure she was a submissive so much as a submissive for Sean. And that was fine as it led to some feisty, fiery play.

Sean was a hard-ass Dom, I quite got Steph’s action in the swimming pool, but I still adored him because his sub’s safety was alway paramount. And not just physical safety, Steph’s mental well being was just as important. This pair were one of my favourite couples and, just like the previous story, I liked how this one ended.







In summary this is one fantastic anthology with something for everyone and not one disappointing story in it.

Excerpt 1:

Wicked by Jennifer Bene:

“Are you a dirty girl, Tori?” he asked, squeezing her hip in a firm grip. “Have you ever been treated like a filthy little slut, or have you only let people call you Baby?”

Her brows pulled together, a flicker of something on her face that he actually couldn’t figure out when she replied with, “I’ve only let people call me Baby, sir.”

Hmm…
Lifting the marker, he carefully wrote the words ‘DIRTY GIRL’ on her right thigh. “Do you know what dirty girls get, Tori?”

“No, sir,” she replied, her eyes glued to the stark contrast of the black marker on her pale skin.

“Exactly what they deserve.”

Excerpt 2:

Unexpected by Measha Stone

“I didn’t mean to sound rude,” she said, and she meant it. People threw her into the bitch category before getting to know her. She wouldn’t blame any of them. First impressions weren’t her strong suit. His lips cracked into a smile, not a pleased and handsome one, but rather a grin that soaked her panties—a knowing grin filled with dark and sinister promises. 

“I know you didn’t.” His fingers tightened, sending another jolt of fire through her scalp. “And I know you weren’t trying to manipulate me into letting you top from the bottom.”

She opened her mouth to agree with him, but the arching of his brow stilled her tongue. That was exactly what she’d been doing.

“I don’t think we’re supposed to start yet,” she said instead.

His smile didn’t fade as his other hand caressed her jaw.

“I can tell our couples are ready to get started, so everyone have fun and play safe!” Madison’s voice boomed over the crowd.

“Now we are.” He released her hair. “Let’s go.”





Teaser 3:

Facade by Livia Grant:

Just as the marble fell into its slot, the stress of the day and heat of the room combined with the dizzy feeling from watching the wheel spinning caught up to her.

Stephanie wobbled on her feet enough that Master Wilde had to reach out and steady her with a tight grip on each of her hips. He crowded closer, molding his muscular chest against her back to help prop her up.

“Whoa, I’ve got you, baby.”

Baby? Stephanie Kranowski was no one’s baby, least of all some guy she’d met thirty seconds before. “I’m not your baby,” she whispered back, trying not to make a scene on the stage.

“Oh, baby. Tonight you’re gonna be whatever the hell I want you to be.”

His ominous words flowed over her. Most women might be afraid of the edgy promise he’d whispered against her ear, but to Stephanie they were like a long-lost song she’d been waiting to hear again.

As the wheel finally came to a halt, her Dom for the night chuckled. “Hey look at that. The perfect kink to marry up with the belting you’re going to receive. I’ll have to consider changing over to a nice crop instead of my belt.”

Fucking great. I rolled Pony Play.

Individual Blurbs and Excerpts:


Wicked by Jennifer Bene
Tori has always been the babygirl looking for her perfect Daddy, but after years of
disappointment could Pierce — a notorious trust fund bad boy — be the one she’s always
needed?


“Are you a dirty girl, Tori?” he asked, squeezing her hip in a firm grip. “Have you ever been treated like a filthy little slut, or have you only let people call you Baby?”

Her brows pulled together, a flicker of something on her face that he actually couldn’t figure out
when she replied with, “I’ve only let people call me Baby, sir.”

Hmm…

Lifting the marker, he carefully wrote the words ‘DIRTY GIRL’ on her right thigh. “Do you
know what dirty girls get, Tori?”

“No, sir,” she replied, her eyes glued to the stark contrast of the black marker on her pale skin.

“Exactly what they deserve.”



Facade by Livia Grant
Sean has to sneak away to Black Light to shed his gentleman’s mask. The closet
adrenaline junkie comes to play hard. But retired porn star Karly Starr doesn’t want any
part of his bullshit BDSM games. She just joined Black Light to get laid. Too bad for her
the wheel paired her with the only guy with the willpower to deny her until she’s begging
to play his dirty games.


Just as the marble fell into its slot, the stress of the day and heat of the room combined with the
dizzy feeling from watching the wheel spinning caught up to her.


Stephanie wobbled on her feet enough that Master Wilde had to reach out and steady her with a
tight grip on each of her hips. He crowded closer, molding his muscular chest against her back to
help prop her up.


“Whoa, I’ve got you, baby.”


Baby? Stephanie Kranowski was no one’s baby, least of all some guy she’d met thirty seconds
before. “I’m not your baby,” she whispered back, trying not to make a scene on the stage.

“Oh, baby. Tonight you’re gonna be whatever the hell I want you to be.”

As the wheel finally came to a halt, her Dom for the night chuckled. “Hey look at that. The
perfect kink to marry up with the belting you’re going to receive. I’ll have to consider changing
over to a nice crop instead of my belt.”

Fucking great. I rolled Pony Play.




Prelude by Renee Rose
I came to Black Light on Bratva business, but now that I’m here, I know exactly who I
want: the lovely blonde who doesn’t belong here. The one who requires a delicate touch.
And I swear, by the time I’m through with her, she’ll be begging for more.


I note Lady Luck’s movement before I even turn back. Then I see her striding quickly away, hips
swaying, hair tossed back with a snap of her head. Gone is the softness of a moment ago.
Now, she’s all business, taking long strides in those heels like she was born in them with her
back stiff and straight as a rod.

Blyad.

I take off after her. I don’t want to make a scene. Black Light has dungeon monitors everywhere,
and everyone here considers us to be part of the entertainment. There’s no such thing as privacy
at Black Light on a night like this.

I hustle to catch up with Lady Luck, without calling her name. She’s near the exit.
“Hang on.” I catch her elbow, then immediately release it when she shakes off my touch. “Don’t
run.”

When she whirls, she has fire in her eyes. “Red.”





Unexpected by Measha Stone
Seeking a night of stress relief, Quinn signs up to spin the wheel at Black Light Roulette.
But she’s off to a rough start when her nerves sabotage her ability to be a good girl.
Things don’t improve when she spins an activity that offers more anxiety than relief.
Jack promises to deliver exactly what she needs, but he’s a stranger. Can she ease her
defenses enough to let him see the real her? If she does— will he stay or will he cry off?


“I didn’t mean to sound rude,” she said, and she meant it. People threw her into the bitch
category before getting to know her. She wouldn’t blame any of them. First impressions weren’t
her strong suit. His lips cracked into a smile, not a pleased and handsome one, but rather a grin
that soaked her panties—a knowing grin filled with dark and sinister promises.

“I know you didn’t.” His fingers tightened, sending another jolt of fire through her scalp. “And I
know you weren’t trying to manipulate me into letting you top from the bottom.”

She opened her mouth to agree with him, but the arching of his brow stilled her tongue. That was
exactly what she’d been doing.

“I don’t think we’re supposed to start yet,” she said instead.

His smile didn’t fade as his other hand caressed her jaw.

“I can tell our couples are ready to get started, so everyone have fun and play safe!” Madison’s
voice boomed over the crowd.

“Now we are.” He released her hair. “Let’s go.”


Trained by Sue Lyndon
Daddy Xavier knows Dolly will make the perfect little baby kitten, even though she’s a
complete newbie at pet play. The adorable brunette simply requires training—and he
plans to do a thorough job.


“You’re my little kitten, Dolly,” he said in a firm tone, “and every good little kitten needs a strict
but caring owner to tend to her needs.”

A half-moan, half-whimper escaped her, and in the next moment, he noticed her fidgeting in
place, pressing her thighs tightly together as she stood before him.

“Some kittens call their owners Master, but you’re a very new baby kitten, so you’ll have a
daddy instead, and you may call me Daddy throughout our scene, little kitten. Do you
understand?”

“Yes, Da-Daddy.” A fresh flush appeared upon her cheeks. He thought she looked radiant as she
stood trembling with excitement and blushing bright red.

“Good kitty. Now, step out of your heels and get down on your hands and knees like a sweet
little baby kitten.”



Inflamed by Golden Angel
Their mutual attraction is hot enough to burn the club down and Master Elliott knows it,
even if he won’t admit it. He’s a sadist with fiery kinks and he chooses his subs wisely.
But Lisa knows Master Elliott is wrong about her and she’s signed up to Roulette night to
prove she can handle whatever the wheel throws her way. When the wheel stops
spinning, all bets are off.



“Ow? What hurts?” It was more of a demand than a question, although concern laced his tone.

“I’m fine,” she said, slapping his hands away when he tried to pull the blanket open to look at
her, feeling annoyed. Before he’d been mad when she hadn’t wanted to cuddle, now he was trying
to end their cuddle session in favor of checking her over. “I can handle anything you dish out.”

She’d meant it as a joke, but there was more of an edge to her voice than she’d intended, some of
the feelings she’d had going into Roulette night making themselves known in that one simple
statement.

Master Elliott stilled. “What do you mean by that?”

“Nothing, I’m just teasing,” she said quickly, but the damage had already been done.

Strong fingers caught her jaw, forcing her to turn her head and meet his gaze. The expression on
his face was guarded, but she could see the tension in his shoulders, the way his eyes blazed.
“Are you trying to prove something to me?” Master Elliott asked. His eyes flashed with intense
emotion. “Would you even have said your safe word if you needed to?”


Breathless by Eris Adderly
For him, everything has to be perfectly clean.
For her, everything has been a perfect mess.
She’s going to teach him to breathe.
He’s going to take her breath away.


“Are you afraid of the dark, Miss Payne?”

They were in a room full of neon. “No, Sir?”

His hand came up to catch hold of something near her face. She’d forgotten about the fucking
blindfold.

“A shame.” Latex swung over her face.

Lights out.


Burn by Kay Elle Parker
Montana millionaire Finnegan McLeod spends his life gambling on the whims of nature
but he’s never been more enthusiastic about taking his turn at a Roulette wheel. Luck falls
on his side, throwing little Ava Conway in his path. She fits him like a glove in every
way. The only question is, when they come together how hot will they burn?


“I’ll ask you outright, Ava, before we wrap up this lovely little scene: do you trust me?”

“Yes, Sir.” There was a vehemence in her tone that hadn’t been in it before. A surety. Ava
nodded again as her confidence swelled, in him, and in herself.

“Will you trust me to take care of you even as I hurt you?” He dragged the rounded tip of the
implement in his hand down the shallow valley of her spine.

She closed her eyes, blew out a long slow breath. She knew what came next. “I think you’re the
only one I do,” she murmured. Her cuffed hands gripped the head of the bench. “Maybe the only
one I can.”

His response was the backs of his fingers brushing over her cheek before he moved away.
“We’re going for ten, little dove. Move and I’ll tie you down. Remember to breathe.”

A Journey into the world of Black Light

BlackLight: Scandalized
by Livia Grant

5+ STARS 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟



BOOM! Mind blown and mouth agape at this masterpiece.

Wow, wow and triple wow. Having had the massively good fortune to not only meet Livia Grant but chat with her (after the Four Brits Book Fest), I know how much blood, sweat and tears were involved in writing this book. I want to just say that it was worth it because without a shadow of a doubt this is her best book to date, and is up there as one of the best Black Light books too.

The book mainly follows a new couple, Nalani and Shane, though there is enough of Piper and Nolan’s story to satisfy the ‘need it now’ feeling, resulting from their appearance in the Celebrity Roulette anthology. There are several ways that these four characters are linked, some obvious, others less so.

I wish I’d re-read Piper and Nolan’s Celebrity Roulette story, just to have the events and ‘feelings’ fresh in my mind. However this book has been written in such a way that you can enjoy it without having read that story first, it really is a standalone book. I absolutely fell in love with these characters, they were believable and had depth, growing and learning as their stories unfolded.

There are some incredibly hot BDSM scenes for those who enjoy a little spice to their read. Shane has a penchant for humiliation play on an almost sadistic level, Nalani is a BDSM novice. Thankfully safewords were discussed and encouraged, though I would have liked to see some discussion/negotiation of limits too.

I just couldn’t read this book quickly enough, always desperate to know what was going to happen next. At the same time I wanted to make it last forever, savouring each moment and submerging myself in the amazing world created by this supremely talented author.

Scandalized is an absolutely amazing read, firmly ensconcing itself as one of my favourite reads of the year. I had the day off and, despite my best intentions to take my time, I just couldn’t put it down. It’s an absolute must read for any Black Light, Livia Grant or BDSM romance fan. I would also happily recommend it to those who like contemporary romance and are willing to be a little more adventurous.

***This book does contain a fairly graphic sexual assault scene, if that is a potential trigger this may not be the book for you. I felt the issue was handled sensitively, respectfully and in a believable manner. ***


BLURB

Four lives tangled by an invisible thread…
Prepare to be scandalized!


Nolan and Piper have a lot in common, and a complicated history that has already hit the rocks twice before. But their undeniable chemistry keeps pulling them back together, and even if she’s Mistress Ice, Nolan is determined to have Piper any way he can get her — secrets and all. 

Famous actor, Shane Covington has almost nothing in common with Runway housekeeper Nalani Ione, but after one fateful meeting there’s no denying the fire between them. Dirty words and naughty fun bring them closer and closer together… but there’s danger in the halls of Black Light.

One dark force will bring these two couples crashing together, and it will take love to bring the scandal to light.
