REVIEW – Needing Him by Kennedy Fox

Needing Him by Kennedy Fox

I just read my FAVE Kennedy Fox book so far!!!!

I legitimately LOVED everything about this story. It has super hot, intense chemistry. EPIC enemies to lovers, angsty feels and super sweet & swoony butterfly inducing moments!

Evan & Emily are INCREDIBLE. Seriously people the TENSION between these two is OFF THE CHAIN. The whole enemies to lovers vibe in Needing Him is one of the best I’ve read! Honestly Evan is an arse. But I LOVED HIM! He has that alpha dominance to him too that will make you sizzle inside. The connection with Emily is instant, but I’m not talking instalove, I mean just an intense connection that shoots from the pages and takes control of everything inside you. I can’t stop thinking about them and loving them and just wanting more!

These Bishop Brothers are TO DIE FOR. I love reading books within a series that layers everything together. Kennedy Fox are building a world here that I just LOVE to be in. The side characters and additional cast really add definition to this book and ultimately UP the story by 100%. All of it works insanely well. Each book is a standalone but for the full reading experience read in order. I promise, you won’t regret it!!!

Introducing book 2 in the Bishop Brothers series! A steamy new southern romance series by USA Today Bestselling author duo, Kennedy Fox!

Evan Bishop is your typical hotshot doctor.
Hardass, brooding, and all business.

Instead of working on the family ranch, Evan broke the mold and became an ER doctor.
He’s good with his hands—in more ways than one—smart as a whip and is the definition of God’s gift to women. Being a gentleman is in his Southern roots, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t flawed. Exclusive dating has never been a top priority and his tragic past makes him stay at arm’s length. Deciding to let loose for a wild night, he takes a page from the Bishop brother’s relationship book and hooks up with a mysterious girl he’ll never have to see again, which is perfect for this self-proclaimed bachelor.

Emily Bell is a city girl through and through but is determined to get away from her family and past. All she wants is a fresh start and to make a name for herself in the medical field. No random hookups and no dating coworkers—that’s her new motto after being burned time and again. When she agrees to attend a wedding as a plus-one, she’s soon ditched and left to drink solo—but not for long. Mr. Suit is the ultimate temptation with his Southern charm, messy blond hair, and irresistible sex appeal. Everything about him screams bad news, but he makes her reconsider her rules just for one night.

After all, some rules are made to be broken.

They want the same thing—one night of passion then they’ll go their separate ways. No cuddling afterward. No next day phone calls. No awkward goodbyes. Too bad the universe has other plans—one that’ll be obvious when they report to work on Monday morning.

*A contemporary romance with a little Southern drama. This is book 2 in the Bishop Brothers series. Each book features a different brother and can be read as a complete standalone. HEA guaranteed!*
Not suitable for readers under 18 due to adult language and sexual content.

Review – Blackstone by JD Hollyfield

Blackstone1

Crystal's review

The premise of this series really stuck out to me – Four Fathers. Each with their own story to tell but their stories are also interconnected. Each story gives the reader a different area of romance to explore: contemporary, erotic, taboo and dark. The blurbs drew me in and I was so amped to read Blackstone. I have never read anything by JD Hollyfield or any of the other authors.

Blackstone was just amazing. It was a quick read but I fell into immediately. Trevor Blackstone is one of the four owners of Four Fathers Freight. He’s a mathematical genius and that makes him quirky, serious and complex. His past has defined him and it one of misunderstandings, loss and abandonment. He finds solace in the ocean… and being in control. All of that is shattered when a spitfire of a woman moves in next door for the summer. But from the first look, from the first meeting, Lucy isn’t like anyone that Trevor has ever known. She’s funny, strong, observant and she just gets him. She’s peace in the violent storm of numbers, equations and formulas.

Like Trevor, Lucy has her own past filled with things that haunt her. Bad decisions, bad relationships, loss of confidence. Lossing her beloved grandmother was the catalyst for change and for the summer she’s going to take her grandmother’s advice and . She never expected Trevor, his affection, his attention. Weird but so very sexy, he turns her world upside down.

Oh, this was just SO GOOD. The story made me itch for more of Lucy and Trevor’s story. There were a few unanswered questions when I got to the last page and I hope that the next three books will have the answers. I laughed all the way through this read and Trevor is definitely not like any other hero I have ever read. Kudos to Lucy, though. She made that man earn her.

One fabulous first look and a great start to an awesome series! Great job, Jessica!

I am meticulous. Structured. A single father.
I obsess over things and crave control.
And when a hot, feisty little woman throws a wrench in my carefully laid out plans, I lose my mind.
My every thought revolves around making her bend to my will—until they become less about her doing things my way and more about just her.
My name is Trevor Blackstone.
I am an obsessive, complicated, demanding man.
People may not understand me, but it doesn’t stop them from wanting me.

img_0285-9

Being Sunday, I decide to take a break from memory lane. I snatch a worn historical romance paperback from Gran’s bookshelf and slide into my brand new white bikini. Grabbing my towel and a Mike’s Hard Lemonade from the fridge, I head out back.

The sun feels amazing on my skin. I inhale the breeze, tasting the salt of the ocean on my tongue. I drop my towel on the lawn chair and get comfortable. My shades are down, and my book is ready to be dominated.

“This is nice,” I hum to myself, lifting my lemonade and taking a nice sip.

And out it all repels as I spit and choke on it.

Jeeeesus Christ.”

I knock my sunglasses halfway down my nose as my eyes threaten to fall out of their sockets. Where in holy heavens did he come from? The half-naked man leaning on his balcony across the way. My tongue about falls out of my mouth. Is that Numbers? And holy shit, when did he get so much muscle? I’d call him fit, but that’s not fit. That’s like, “Hi, I eat muscle for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and now I’m just all muscle.”

I wipe at my chin, unsure whether it’s lemonade splatter or I’m drooling. I’m probably drooling. I wasn’t paying attention to much of him yesterday when he was acting all crazy on my front step. I just wanted him gone. To be honest, while he was babbling, I was trying to dig in the back of my brain for my old high school karate moves in case he tried something on me. Looking at him now, I wish he had.

He lifts his hand, threading his large hand through his hair and dragging his fingers down his hard chest covered in a dusting of hair. “Oh boy, where’s that hand going?” I mumble, licking my lips. Oh yeah. I see where this is going. Yep, oh yeah… Did I just moan?

Oh, hell yeah I did, but it’s so worth it. His hand dips down into his board shorts and he adjusts himself. Feel free to pull them down. Show us the goods, I think, mentally visualizing just how big his junk is. He’s a pretty big guy. Big hands. Theory says, and all.

Watching him fondle himself in all his hot glory, my curiosity piques. How old is he really? He sure had a reason to take offense by my calling him old. He certainly doesn’t look old. He surely looks a zillion times hotter than Jimmy, and he was only twenty-eight. I’m not an age wizard, but if I had to guess, I’d say late thirties, early forties. Definitely a bit out of my age range. Why? No idea. No real reason screaming stay away. Well, besides the major one being he wants to evict me, tear down my Gran’s life of memories, and probably build a gym in its place.

Yeah, that’s a good enough reason.

It also reminds me it’s the guys who look appealing on the outside that usually turn out to be dicks on the inside.

Review – Demons by JL Drake

6 out of 5 stars

6 stars

Holy hell, Jodi never ceases to amaze me. Her books trap you and pull you into the pages. I have loved every book that I’ve read by her, and I hope to be enjoying them for years to come. I’m finding it hard to get a great MC book lately, but I can always count on Jodi to ho above and beyond no matter what she writes.

This book sucks you into a vortex that’s never ending. You will be glued to your kindle until you reach the dreaded words “the end”. I will be on pins and needles waiting for book 3. Trigger just gets better and better. You never know he’s going to do, so he keeps you on your toes! Phenomenal job once again!

Trigger

I thought the light would bring redemption.

Salvation.

But it only brought the Devil to my doorstep.

My demons are breaking through, and the reaper is moving closer.

My weakness has been exposed, and there’s only one person who can calm this hell…

Tess

I broke a promise to myself, and now I’m paying for it.

I don’t want to be here. I don’t want to be a part of this hell.

But I don’t have a choice…

A hot new standalone romance from New York Times bestseller, Kendall Ryan.

She’s the tutor I hired to teach me Italian.

She’s way too young for me, but she’s also gorgeous, bright and filled with a curiosity about life that I find incredibly refreshing.

It’s fucking adorable.

I’m old enough to know better, but this pretty young thing tempts me beyond belief. And for the first time in my life, I can see myself falling.

***

Is this what it’s like to be pursued by an older man? The complete confidence, the lack of expectations, the sincerity?

My God, it’s exhilarating.

Quinn Kingsley is totally unexpected. I’m moving to Italy in three weeks to teach English, and while I never expected something so real to develop between us so quickly, our chemistry is undeniable.

There’s something so sexy about this back and forth he and I share. Flirting with this man is like playing with fire, and I’m bound to get burned.

Io sono attratto da te. I’m attracted to you, he tells me.

But is our attraction enough to get us through the complications of a massive age gap and an international love affair?

Only one way to find out…

Review – With This Man by Jodi Ellen Malpas

With This Man by Jodi Ellen Malpas

So, I’m gonna start this review being really, really honest. When Jodi Ellen Malpas announced that she was writing another book about Jesse & Ava my first thought was “NO. NOPE. Can’t have it”. I was really, really struggling with the prospect of having another book in the world that would upset the dynamic of such a great loved pair. I mean Jesse & Ava are the Ross & Rachel of the book world. They go together like Bella & Edward, Cinderella & Prince Charming. They JUST FIT. And I did not know how another book could be better, be good… The prospect of another book started to grow on me though and soon for me, no matter what the outcome was going to be, everything got the better of me and I KNEW I simply HAD to read it.

And OH MY GOODNESS!

THANK the LORD himself that I did.

With This Man is MAGNIFICENT. I would like to officially claim that this is Jodi’s best book yet. Very easily her best writing. This book had a flow and an ease that was so comfortable, so relaxing. It was like coming home. All my fears about how this would work were disintegrated by 10%. This book consumed me, like how Jesse consumes Ava. It was everything I could have HOPED for and then some.

I’m not going to go into storyline or anything detailed. What I will say though is Jesse is FIIIIIIIINE! I’d actually say he’s better than ever, hotter than ever, swoonier than ever.

If you know anything about me, you’ll know, I always crave FEELING. Crave EMOTION. This book has both of those in BUCKET LOADS! My heart broke with Jesse’s. My tummy in knots. I was on the edge of my seat wanting to scream and shout and kick off at Jodi for putting them through what she does. My eyes watered heavily. Then I would laugh. I would be struck by de-ja-vu that made me smile then made my heart pang. There was just so much emotion, so much feeling, so much everything that just MADE this book.

I don’t know what is left to say except, THANK YOU Jodi. Thank you for writing this book, thank you for staying true to Jesse & Ava. Thank you for Jesse! Thank you for giving me a top read of 2018.

Jesse Ward is back in the newest novel in the Sunday Times and New York Times bestselling This Man series!

Life is good for Jesse ‘The Lord’ Ward. Perfect, actually. He still has the charm, he’s in great shape, and he still reduces his wife, Ava, to a pool of desire with a mere look. He’s in full control, just how he likes it.

But Jesse’s perfect world falls apart when a terrible accident lands Ava in hospital with a life-threatening head injury. Devastated and angry, he feels like his entire existence hangs in the balance. He cannot survive without this woman’s love. So when she finally comes around, his shaking world begins to level out. But his nightmare doesn’t end there. It’s only just begun. Because his wife can’t remember the last sixteen years of her life. That’s all of him. All of their time together. He is a stranger to her.

Now Jesse must do whatever it takes to find her memories . . . and help her fall madly, passionately in love with him all over again.

Review – Hero by Lauren Rowe

6 stars but worth more!

6 stars but really more like 20. Lauren you a like a magical rainbow unicorn. I become more and more amazed with each release, even though every book you’ve written is absolute perfection! Just FYI, you will need tissues for happy cries and sad cries.

This story resonated so much. I absolutely adore Colby and Lydia. I usually find myself talking about the male main character, but Lydia is one strong bitch and I love her to pieces.

Now on to Colby. That man is the kind of man every girl she wishes she could find. What I absolutely loved with his character was that he was caring, loving, devoted, and protective without be an alpha. I know we all love our alphas, but I absolutely love characters like Colby.

Both Lydia and Colby have a tragic life story, and find each other at the right time, even though tragedy is what brought them together. Watching the love between these 2 makes my heart so happy. Plus, who doesn’t love a man who acceps your children? Can you say *swoon* #OvaryExplosion #LaurenRoweRocks

HERO by LAUREN ROWE

Hero, an all-new sexy and emotional standalone romance by Lauren Rowe is Available NOW!

Synopsis:

A standalone contemporary romance in the MORGAN BROTHERS SERIES from USA Today Bestselling Author Lauren Rowe. The story of firefighter Colby Morgan that proves heroes come in many forms . .

The first time I laid eyes on Lydia Decker, I couldn’t speak. Or breathe. Or string two coherent thoughts together.

And I don’t mean any of that figuratively.

I’m not talking about a guy being floored by the sight of a gorgeous woman—although, of course, Lydia is gorgeous beyond words.

No, when I first laid eyes on Lydia Decker—my physical therapist—I was lying flat on my back in the ICU, high as a kite on painkillers, breathing on a ventilator, my bones as broken and splintered as my spirit.

When I first laid eyes on Lydia Decker, she was a ray of light in the dark. Hope for the hopeless. A salve for my singed and battered soul.

She said she’d been assigned to fix me. That she was there to bring me back to life. She said helping me was her calling.

And then she touched me. Physically, emotionally, spiritually. She healed me.

And I fell in love.

But what I didn’t know . . . what I couldn’t possibly know . . . was that Lydia Decker needed fixing far more than I ever did.

Review – One Too Many by Jade West

One Too Many cover

Review graphic

I waited so very eagerly for this book to arrive. After Bait, I didn’t think I would ever be ready for another Jade West story. I stalked Jade everyday for updates. The blurb so fascinated me and her naughty teasers kept me on the edge of my seat. Just waiting for this taboo story to arrive. The premise so deliciously wicked – the answer to all your problems comes with an indecent proposal… one night with your beautiful wife. No holds barred but with one condition. You have to watch every single moment.

Jade certainly did not disappoint. Brett, Grace and Thomas’s story is so utterly twisted, so shocking and so fascinating that I was unable to put it down. I didn’t want to step away and miss one single moment with these characters. I expected smutty, sordid and sexy with this story. And yes, with this threesome that’s all there and then some. What took me completely by surprise and had me shaking my head was how complex Thomas Heath was, how solid Brett and Grace Foster were and how one proposition rocked their foundation, and how the past really can mold someone for good or bad.

There are some things that can truly spoil a great marriage. Sex and money… too little of one and not enough of the other most certainly will destroy what was once amazing. That was Brett and Grace. They threw everything they had into a dream and a hotel on the coast. They had big dreams for success and family only to watch as those dreams slowly but surely wash out with the tide. Bills piling up and their relationship strained to its breaking point, everything changes when a stranger checks into their modest little hotel on the coast.

Secret needs are revealed. Secret wants are unveiled. I watched this story develop and bloom with so much intensity and raw brutal honesty. It was breathtaking, exciting and thigh clenching. Hell, it was filthy, foul and eye opening. There is definite sexy attraction with these three. Chemistry and even a sense of camaraderie if it can be believed. Until that is gone and something else seeps in. Then something else happened. This book became a story of deeply held pain, regrets, and a chance at redemption.

Jade once again penned a beautifully written tale. Bold and daring. It left me gutted and sobbing, heated and fanning my face. I turned those pages until there was nothing left but an epilogue that only made me dare to hope for more later. This was amazing and so very well done!

FANTASTIC, Jade!

Jade has increasingly little to say about herself as time goes on, other than the fact she is an author, but she’s plenty happy with this. Living in imaginary realities and having a legitimate excuse for it is really all she’s ever wanted. Jade is as dirty as you’d expect from her novels, and talking smut makes her smile. She lives in the Powys countryside with a couple of hounds and a guy who’s able to cope with her inherent weirdness. She has a zebra print living room, and fights a constant battle with her addiction to Coca-Cola.

Review – Unraveled by KM Neuhold

5 out of 5 stars

I was late to the game in discovering this series, but I am catching up. I can’t believe I have been missing out on such a fabulous series all this time. I am reading them all as fast as I can. I can’t seem to get enough. I fell in love immediately with Max and Clay.

Max and Clay have been best friends and roommates for years without realizing they were living with the love of their lives. They were there for each other in every way possible until one day they throw caution to the wind and sparks fly! They discover that what they have is real and true.

When Max finds out that his ex is moving across the country with his daughter, he is heartbroken. The only thing he can do to still see her regularly is uproot his life and move. The problem is Clay is not up for the move. They soon find themselves broken and lost. Can Clay muster up the courage to take a chance on love?? You have to read to find out.

Once again a phenomenal read by KM Neuhold. I can’t wait for more.

COVER PHOTO: StockPhoto

My mind and body are full of chaos; the only time I can truly feel free is when my hands, arms, and legs are secured. Just because I want to be bound, able to give over my pleasure entirely to another person, doesn’t mean I want to be controlled, humiliated, or made to endure pain. I’m a successful, happy, confident adult man who wants a lover to tie him up. Why is that so scandalous? And why is it so difficult to find? It doesn’t help that I’ve developed a hopeless crush on my straight roommate. Maybe a fulfilling relationship isn’t in the cards for me.

Max:

I’m completely out of control of my life. My ex is trying to take my daughter away from me… again, my dream of owning my own motorcycle repair shop seems out of reach, and somehow, I find myself a thirty-two-year-old man who can’t afford to have a place without a roommate. So, it’s no huge surprise that the idea of being given complete control over someone’s body and pleasure is a major turn-on. I never had any inkling I might be into guys, until my best friend told me he likes to be tied up. Now I’m losing sleep, imagining him bound and begging for me. I can’t figure out if it’s just the kink or if it’s possible I’m falling for him.

Every dish in the kitchen is piled on the table, while I stand on a chair to scrub the insides of the cabinets.

Maybe I can strip and re-stain the wood; that would look nice. Although, I doubt there’s any stripper or stain in the house, so I’d have to go to the hardware store. I glance at the clock on the stove. There probably aren’t any hardware stores open at three in the morning.

Something soft bounces off the back of my head, pulling me from my thoughts. I glance down to see what hit me, and I frown in confusion. I must be more tired than I thought because I can’t for the life of me figure out what a random sock is doing lying at my feet.

“What the hell?” I mutter, trying to suppress a yawn.

“I figured you must be a house elf on crack, so I was trying to set you free.”

I snort a laugh and glance over my shoulder to see Max standing behind me in nothing but a pair of pajama pants. I force myself not to let my gaze linger on his toned chest or his adorable, sleep rumpled hair.

“Very funny.” I roll my eyes and yawn before turning back to continue my task.

Strong hands grasp my waist and, before I know it, I’m being scooped up into Max’s arms and carried to my bedroom. I’m more excited than I have any right to be when Max lowers me onto my bed without so much as jostling me.

“Sleep,” he says with authority. I roll my eyes at him.

“I can’t sleep; that’s why I was cleaning.”

He sighs and looks down at me with a conflicted expression.

“What would help?”

A release— something to calm my mind for a few minutes.

“Nothing you can help me with,” I toss back with agitation. “What if I climb into bed with you—”

“Keep talking,” I encourage with a salacious grin.

“Dirty mind,” Max accuses with a chuckle. “What I was saying was, why don’t I climb into bed, and we can pull up something boring on your laptop. I bet that’ll help you fall asleep.”

He’s not wrong. It’s the only thing that helps some nights. And, truth be told, it’s more about the feeling of Max’s warmth beside me and the steady rhythm of his breath as he sleeps.

“Thank you.”

“Anytime,” Max assures me before grabbing my laptop off my desk and climbing into bed beside me.

I’m an author of m/m and new adult romance. I have a strong passion for writing characters with a lot of heart and soul, and a bit of humor as well.

Review – Steal You by KD Robichaux and CC Monroe

Steal You cover

Review graphic

There are books that you read and they fill you with joy. There are books that consume you and it’s all you can do to turn those pages to see what is going to happen next to the people that have taken over your life and have residence in your heart.

Then there are books like this when the characters and story take on a life of their own, grab you by the throat and pour all those dark emotions, obsessive compulsions and mind numbing, spare no one and burn-it-to-the-ground passion into your very soul and leave you devastated. That was Steal You. The Keeper and his Little Bird left me speechless, shaking and asking myself as I turned the page and read the last word: Am I that crazy, too?

Their relationship is so very forbidden. He’s a professor and she’s his student. He’s had his eye on her for a while. He’s determined. She’s a good girl, but every good girl has a bad side. Still some have a streak of crazy. Xander saw that streak, reveled in it and watched it grow. Lizith was the perfect submissive, a bird held captive in the cage of her keeper even after her beloved keeper was no longer around.

The twists, turns and oh-my-god moments in this story left me with my hand over my mouth in shock, screaming at my kindle or clutching at my throat. A few times I stepped away from my kindle because I felt like my device was on fire from witnessing some of the hottest sex scenes I have ever read. And still the moments that I thought to myself that Xander and Lizith were absolutely insane and that I would just walk away for good, I found myself pulled in and turning those pages once again.

Kayla and CC have written this book so flawlessly, so seamlessly that there is no way to know that two people co-authored this tale. Two authors with one heart and one very tangled soul. This book is utterly brilliant, dark from its roots to the tips of its branches and so captivating that I long for more… just more. It is beautifully written and a roller coaster ride that I wasn’t even prepared for.

So very well done! Congratulations, ladies. SIX STARS!

synopsis.jpg

I was a good girl.
Until you made me love you.
You trained me to be your pretty little bird,
my feathers spreading under your attention and praise.
You promised you’d leave her.
Swore it was me you wanted more than life.
But then you broke my wings and silenced my song,
and you became my obsession.
I’ve spent years trying to figure out a way to change your mind,
to win back your heart.
But in this moment of desperation,
my mind leaves me.
And I’ll just
Steal you
instead.

Steal You is a dark erotic romance full of suspense, depicting a twisted love affair between a professor and his student. They have an obsessive, almost scary kind of love, one that could get them both hurt… and maybe even killed.

“Steal You is a unique twist on the dark genre that is a breath of fresh air, sure to tantalize and tease lovers of psychological reads. With two characters expertly blended to portray the true insanity that comes with romance, this story will leave you gasping for air while begging for more.”
~Lily White Bestselling Author

“I don’t think I’ve ever read a crazier, darker or more suspenseful book than Steal You, and I loved every minute of this insane ride.”
~Tara Sivec USA Today Bestselling Author

“Twisted, tantalizing, and totally f*cking terrific. Hooked from the very beginning, Steal You is unputdownable!”
~Erin Noelle USA Today Bestselling Author

“Lizith is a freaking psycho genius, and I LOVED THIS CHARACTER SO HARD!! What a twisted couple these authors have birthed in Steal You. So much so that I wonder if they need some sort of professional evaluation conducted just to be sure they are okay to be left unsupervised. Steal You left me wanting more of Lizith and her brilliant cray-cray mind!”
~Author Barbara Blue, #1 Bestselling Author in six obscure categories on Amazon

Review – On His Knees by Laura Kaye

5 out of 5 stars

I have loved this series since book 1,but hands down this book is my favorite. When you look at a book and see it’s a BDSM story, you know you’re in for a hot treat. Laura turns these stories into so much more though, showing vulnerability and finding one’s way in life. I haven’t gotten through one book in this series without tears, tears of joy and tears of sadness. Going through the journey of self discovery is such a beautiful thing, and Laura nails it EVERY SINGLE TIME!!

Jamie just has no idea what is wrong with him that he can’t seem to keep a relationship because something is missing, something down to his very core. When he starts to realize he needs pain to feel satisfied and the startling discovery that he pictures a man to be the only one who can give it to him. He gets introduced into BDSM scene, and suddenly his life finally feels right. He is happier and more fulfilled than ever. He really can’t get enough. It doesn’t help that he rapidly falls head over heels in love with Master Alex in such a short time.

Alex is feeing miserable. He just isn’t getting the satisfaction that he craves as a sadist. When Master Kyler thrusts a newbie his way, he is determined that he is not going there with a newbie, but when he sees another Master taking over, he quickly jumps into what will be the ride of his life.

These two bond immediately. It was so beautiful to watch them both grow and find the missing piece of themselves in each other. This book will be hard to top for me, but I know Laura will continue to blow me away with her beautiful words.

Decadent… Sensual… Forbidden…

Meet the Masters of Blasphemy…

About ON HIS KNEES (Blasphemy #5):

Getting on his knees makes him question everything…and want even more…

Another failed relationship has lawyer Jamie Fielding confronting the truth—he’ll never be satisfied with any woman until he admits what he needs…to submit and to be used—hard. When a friend invites him to the exclusive Blasphemy club, Jamie is stunned to find everything he ever wanted—in the fierce, ruthless hands of a man.

Psychiatrist Alex McGarry will play with anyone who craves his rough brand of domination, but what he really wants is to settle down. Which makes the submissive male he meets at his club a bad idea—the man might be hot as hell but he’s also new to everything Alex has to offer. Except that doesn’t keep them from coming together again and again, sating every one of their darkest desires.

Master Alex sets Jamie’s whole world on fire and makes him question everything—and that’s good. Because Alex won’t tolerate hiding what they have for long and he wants much more than just having Jamie on his knees…

Jamie was done holding back. He was done questioning. He was done feeling like he was on the outside looking in.

Now that Master Alex had demonstrated exactly what Jamie required to fully connect with another human being, he needed this to go all the way. More than that, he wanted Alex to be the one to take him there.

So he held his breath, held the Dom’s gaze, and held on to the hope that the man would agree.

“You want your first time to be non-consensual role-playing,” Master Alex finally said, his voice like it’d been scoured with sandpaper.

The tone of it gave Jamie hope. Because he was affected. Jamie wasn’t the only one who needed this, he would’ve put money on it.

Nodding, Jamie summoned the courage to say what he wanted, while the Dom was still open to hearing it. Even though, Jesus, the words on the tip of his tongue were seriously twisted. He let them fly anyway. “I want you to force me, use me, hurt me. To show me what it really means to be taken by a…a—”

Say it.”

“By a sadist.”

Master Alex’s dark eyes flared, and his expression went a little mean. Jamie’s cock hardened, a reaction he couldn’t hide when he knelt there naked. The Dom’s gaze swept downward and settled on his growing erection, and Jamie felt the directness of that perusal as a physical caress.

Slowly, Alex rose to his full height, and then his expression went absolutely unforgiving. “Beg.”

Laura is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of over thirty books in contemporary and erotic romance and romantic suspense, including the Blasphemy, Hard Ink, and Raven Riders series. Growing up, Laura’s large extended family believed in the supernatural, and family lore involving angels, ghosts, and evil-eye curses cemented in Laura a life-long fascination with storytelling and all things paranormal. Laura also writes historical fiction as the NYT bestselling author, Laura Kamoie. She lives in Maryland with her husband and two daughters, and appreciates her view of the Chesapeake Bay every day.
