DADDIES OF THE CASTLE


Can their relationship ever survive beyond the castle’s walls?

Find out in Educating Ella by Katie Douglas … AVAILABLE NOW!!

4.25 stars

This is less Daddy Dom, more school master/school girl, and one incredibly hot read to boot.

The author managed to incorporate a fantastic mix of story, emotion, character development and kinky play. The two main characters, ‘Ella’ and ‘Idris’, really drew me into the story and I soon found myself rooting for them to forge a deeper connection.
I loved how the author meshed Ella’s strong personality from her everyday life with her submissive side. Both elements were cleverly portrayed and led to her being both a likeable and very believable character.

Whilst Idris was definitely a dominant character, he didn’t feel overwhelmingly alpha with it. In fact he was more like the nurturing and guiding school master he ‘played’ at the castle, which I found very refreshing and was totally on board with.

I have the book on pre-order and will review the remaining stories when I get chance to read them, but would happily recommend the book just based on this story alone.

Ratings

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.

HER MONTANA MASTER

Her Montana Master (Stateside Doms Book 1) by Maren Smith

Reading this made me want to immediately one-click all the Maren Smith books I haven’t yet bought.

This was just – *swoon*,  sigh – quite simply wonderful. The whole book revolves very much around Maddon and Clover, with just a handful of scenes involving other characters. This allows us to really form a connection with both main characters, believe in them and understand them. The emotion, wanting and heart ache both crushed me and filled me with a sense of longing of my own. 

Clover is so vulnerable, so damaged by the men in her life and her constant poor choices, Maddon has his own issues but is the rock that anchors her world. The chemistry and bond the author portrayed between the pair held me spellbound from the first to last word. I may even have shed the odd tear, especially at the end. The only reason I didn’t read it in one go was that it got so late I fell asleep before I could read it all.

This was very much a book you never wanted to end, it was sweet, steamy, loving, happy, sad and troubled all in one well written package. Madden is such a caring, loving Dom, not perfect but perfect for Clover. Strict when he needs to be, recognising Clover’s needs and filling them. Whilst the BDSM content is fairly ‘light’ it was still extremely hot and fitted well with the story. I’m definitely looking forward to more books in this series.

SYNOPSIS

He’s known her since she was two…

Abandoned by her father, ignored by her mother, Clover Harris has always fantasized about her brother’s best friend. He’s the only person in her life who’s always been there. The only problem: he’s never shown any interest in her as anything more than a little sister. Until the day she loses everything. Cast out of her home, with nothing and nowhere to go, Clover does what she always has. She runs… straight to Madden, only this time, he’s all done playing big brother.

He’s loved her since she was twelve…

A dominant man, Madden Briggs knows a submissive when he sees one, and in Clover he sees everything he’s ever wanted, but she’s kept him strictly in the like-a-brother zone for more than twenty years. That all comes to an end the day she shows up at his door. She wants a job; he hires her. She needs money; he’ll let her earn it. She dreams about a car so she can leave this town forever; he’ll even teach her how to drive. But it’s the lost and scared submissive inside her that he aches to touch, and her willingness to obey becomes his addiction. 

And in the end, she’s still going to leave… unless Her Montana Master can somehow change her mind.

From salvage mission to cluster-fuck before they even got out of the hatch. That was some kind of record… even for them.


I love belts. Implements of correction that one can wear, always at the ready. –

Kogan

I’m supposed to give the orders and you’re supposed to take them, damn it.

Piper


Say ‘Piper’s been a bad girl. Piper needs a spanking.’ I want to hear how it sounds when you say it somewhere other than my fantasies.

Kogan


“I’m captain of this vessel. At best, you’re a passenger; at worst, you’re the ship’s very hairy mascot.”

“I am not hairy.”

“Please. I could wear your chest for a sweater.”

Piper & Kogan

Blurb:
She was a salvage operator, patrolling the depths of deep space.

He was a professional consort to royalty, built like a Neanderthal. Twice her width and twice her weight, his six-pack abs had six-pack abs. She knew, because she’d seen them.

It really was kind of too bad they didn’t get along.

Excerpt:
“I love belts.” He winked, and she trembled all the harder when he knelt down behind her. The cuffs clinked together as he selected which end to use first. “Implements of correction that one can wear, always at the ready.”

“What exactly do you think I should be corrected for?”

He pretended to think about it. “How about all the times you drove me to absolute distraction?”

She was so astonished by that lack of reasoning, she almost didn’t notice he had fastened the first cuff around her unresisting ankle, and then buckled that around the right table leg. “I drove you? You’re the one who won’t stop walking around the ship naked!”

“Yes, but who ignores it? Do you have any idea how cold this ship is when you’re wet? Your first dozen strokes ought to be for shrinkage alone. And all those times you called me ‘asshat’?” He shifted to her other side, opening the cuff to buckle down her left ankle. “Granted, I didn’t know what that meant until now, but still…” He circled to the head of the table and leaned down beside her. Hands clasped, weight braced on his elbows, he shook his head. “Poor innocent, little human. Don’t worry. I am going to make this such an education for you.” Ruffling her hair, he stood again.

“You idiot!” she huffed, whipping her hair back out of her eyes. “It’s a curse, not a suggestion. And like hell I’m going to stand here and be taught anything by the likes of y-ah!” She lurched in her bonds, every inch of her straining to escape the lash of pure fire that wrapped her ass, hugging it in the grip of all that supple leather before letting go.

“Is it?” Kogan asked, shifting that deceptively soft strap to his other hand. “Is it really?”

The sting was incredible and yet, when he let his free hand wander a brushing caress across the welt he’d just created, her eyes damn near closed in erotic delight.

Her Consort by Maren Smith

From salvage mission to cluster-fuck before they even got out of the hatch. That was some kind of record… even for them.


This is a very fun, super quirky and red-hot steamy read. It was originally in the Alien Alpha’s anthology and if you didn’t grab that whilst it was available then you really should get hold of this asap.

I loved the heroine, Piper. She said it like it was and had a sarcastic streak a mile wide. I laughed so many times at things she said or thought, and definitely felt a connection to her.

The book is written entirely from her POV but as the story progresses you do get a good feel for Kogan, the hero, too. He’s a little short, somewhat sneakily clever and a whole lot kinky. Kogan has been biding his time with Piper, and when a too-good-to-miss opportunity arises, he grabs it (and her) with both hands!

For a fairly quick read, this book provides a huge amount of entertainment and actually felt like more than a segue into a sex scene. I’d love to see more of this full of snark and banter couple.
