mrblack
When Alexander Bishop accepts a position at Blackstone Enterprises, she does not expect to be seduced by the handsome billionaire Maximilian Blackstone. She later realizes that to whom much is given much is expected, which leads her into his world of S&M.

Crystal’s Review

This is a book that will keep you guessing all the way through.

Alex is working for Max at his ski lodge. She knows that there is something about him that she can’t ignore. What would a man with money want with her? He wants her but she knows it will only be a one night stand. When she finally gives in to him and gives him her virginity and leaves the next day, she goes back home and doesn’t want to see him again. She gets a job working for him again and she will make sure he is the one left wanting.

This is a great read and I didn’t want to start it at first, but once I did I couldn’t put it down. I got so much into the story and I couldn’t wait to see how Alex pulled this off. I would get everything mixed up if it was me. The plot just kept getting more intense as I read it. I have to say that the ending left me wanting more. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series.

Review – Sophie’s Surrender – Viper’s Dungeon 4 by Abby Blake

sofie

Sophie had no interest in the BDSM club down the road, but when the Copeland brothers walked into her small bakery, heat was rising from more than just the bread.

As the new owner of Viper’s Dungeon, Alex Copeland is more than ready to find a full-time sub. Sophie Richards, with her delicious curves and warm smile, seems to be a perfect choice.

His brother, Adrian, wasn’t quite ready to settle into domestic Dom-sub bliss but one glance at the beauty behind the counter makes him wonder. Maybe it only takes the right woman to make him want the same thing as his brother. As experienced Doms, sharing seems almost natural.

So what happens when they discover that Sophie not only misunderstands their way of life but divorced the head of security at Viper’s Dungeon because of it?

Hell, everyone at Viper’s knows Malcolm Richards still loves his ex-wife.

Crystal’s Review
If you are looking for a hot erotic menage then this is the book for you.

Sophie is a woman that left her husband five years ago because he went to work at the Viper’s Dungeon and wanted to start bringing it to the bedroom. Sophie wasn’t comfortable with that so she wanted a divorce. She thought that BDSM was something that you did all the time. It mean giving away your independence and doing whatever your Dom said for you to do. That wasn’t something she was comfortable with. So she opened her own business.

Five years down the road Viper’s Dungeon has a new owner and when Alex and Adrian meet Sophie they know she is the woman for them. Sophie gives them one night and then she finds out who they are. With the help of these two brothers and some women, Sophie starts seeing that she was wrong.

I enjoyed this book. I wondered what I would be getting myself into when I started reading this book. It was something that I couldn’t have imagined in my wildest imagination. The author did a wonderful job showing Sophie’s fears and what it took to get over them. I am so glad that these three men didn’t fight over her and made a relationship work. The storyline was easy to follow and even though I didn’t read the other three I never felt like I was missing out on anything. I will warn you that this is a M/F/M/M. There is no M/M. There is anal sex and toys with BDSM. I enjoyed this book and will read more by this author in the future.

Tamara’s Review
hearts 51Flames 3

The blurb on Top Dog hooked me. I had to read the story of a shifter who turned into a Yorkie terrier. How as that going to work? I’ll admit you have to suspend reality a bit to picture a six foot two-hundred pound man turning into a fourteen pound Yorkie, but really, don’t er already suspend reality when we embrace the world of shapeshifters, anyway? Shifting is magic and we all know magic can do anything, right?
“Precious” had been Kady’s dog through her rough teenage years, her fiend and confidant. He disapeared when she went off to college. When she encounters a dog that looks just like her Precious at a crime scene, she can’t resist taking him home. The similarities between the new “Precious” and the old are stunning!ANd there is a reason why… They are the same little dog.
Drake Martin is a shapeshifter. Occasionally in a shapeshifter’s life he meets he meets someone special, and from the moment Drake met Kady, he knew she was a special lady. It broke his heart to leave Kady, but his time with her was up and he couldn’t risk detection. WHen fate brings them back together, Drake discovers his feeling for Kady have grown and changed. He loved her as a child, but now he loves her as a woman. But, will Kady be able to accept his secret?
Top Dog had humor, heart, action,and suspense. Watching Drake morph back and forth between dog and man, while they are both supposed to be in the same place at the same time was a comedy of errors.
With a glimpse into the hierarchy of the Shifter clans, a Russian mole in the FBI, human trafficking. kidnapping and murder the action and adventure abound.
Top Dog is written in first person perspective, and I’ll be honest with you, I usually HATE first person. But for this story it works. It was actually quite interesting, because it is told more from “Precious'” POV than Drake’s.
My only negative about Top Dog was I wanted to know what the “Suffie” turned into! We know he is a canine shifter, but I wanted to know if he was a huge Great Dane or a cuddly Pomeranian!
Check out this unique shifter adventure, you won’t be disappointed.

Wicked Wild Wednesday – Slick Rider – Em Petrova – Giveaway

EM_SlickRider_coverlg(1)

Blurb:
Physical therapy assistant Lilly’s job is to keep rodeo star Juss Rossie off his injured leg and from using his bad shoulder to rope more buckle bunnies. Trouble is she wants—just for once in her life—to be one of those rodeo gals who gets the cowboy. Pushing him to the limits of his therapy will take some creative maneuvering, and she finds he responds in the yummiest ways.

Juss hates like hell to be laid up with injuries and off the back of a bull. But being at the mercy of therapist Lilly is torture—especially when she gets in the pool, on the mat, or crawls into bed with him. Can he recover from her mind-blowing advances without losing his heart?

Excerpt:
RATED ADULT
The bell for room four pealed for the third time in a quarter of an hour. Lilly Hall whirled around and glared at the light flashing over the door. The normally quiet alarm sounded like a gong in her head.

“Bed four needs something, Lilly. Don’t keep your patient waiting,” her fellow physical therapist assistant Katie said with a grin. Short-staffed as always during late summer. Everyone went on vacation and left the physical therapists to answer call lights.

“He needs something all right.” A kick in the chaps—bound and gagged. The insufferable cowboy was driving Lilly’s patience to the brink. If she heard his country drawl one more time, she was going to do something very bad. Like hog-tie him with a resistance band.

Juss Rossie, star of the rodeo circuit, was injured and on her turf. He was everything Lilly had dreamed he’d be—his game was smoother than aged whiskey and every hard inch of his body spoke of the power and control he exerted over the bulls he rode.
Now he was confined to a sling and a splint after taking a fall from Bushwhacker, one of the meanest, ugliest bulls on the Professional Bull Riders Tour. Juss had ridden it for seven seconds before he was flung off laterally, tearing his knee and dislocating his shoulder and popping several ligaments. They’d brought him in gritting his teeth in pain, refusing to take any pain meds. The first thing Lilly had done was help hold him down while a nurse administered a big fat shot to his tanned butt cheek.

Yes, he was wonderfully tanned—all the way to his toes.

And horribly infuriating.

The light over his door kept flashing. Having a long shift with a frustrating patient made Lilly grind her teeth and remind herself why she loved physical therapy. For two more weeks she was stuck with him in this private rehab center. Unfortunately, Juss Rossie had assigned himself to her every waking moment of those two weeks. Money could do that.

If she was being honest with herself, she’d admit she was like a cat in heat for the panty-drenchingly-sexy cowboy. How many times had she watched him on the Jumbotron being jerked all over the place and wished she could mount a man with that much skill?

As a physical therapist’s assistant, she often traveled to the arena with Doctor Paddington, who personally saw to several of the riders. She’d never seen Juss up close and personal before though. She would have remembered those steely biceps, corded forearms, hard chest…and the hat he would have worn dipped low over those smoldering black eyes that went with a blacker reputation.

They called him Slick Rider because he’d started out riding broncos, and it was rumored he liked to ride bareback. Actually, his reputation was that he preferred everything bare.

A tingle ignited between Lilly’s thighs. She contained the urge to squeeze them together. Getting hot and bothered at work was a pitfall of hanging around so much muscled flesh. An almost constant parade of rodeo riders visited this private center.
Lilly hadn’t ever dated a cowboy, but it was on her bucket list. Still, not one of the cowboys who had visited the center had ever lit a spark in her. She’d spent half of last night dreaming about being with Juss—bent over, pinned beneath him, and riding him.

The last image had finally awakened her, and she’d had to finger herself to get relief. Taking control of a powerful man like Juss was a dream she’d never forget. But the reality paled in comparison to her fantasies.

“Lilly,” Katie warned when Lilly continued to ignore the flashing light.

“Jeez— All right!” She burst through the door of room four.

He lay there like a tanned god. Long, sooty lashes framed gorgeous chocolate-colored eyes that melted every woman in his vicinity. He always wore a goatee, but since coming here he’d trimmed it extra short. Probably because he’d injured the shoulder of his dominant hand—his left—and was forced to use his right.

Her heart squeezed at the sight of his lazy smile. “Glad to know my money is employing the most attentive staff available,” he drawled.

Insufferable man. Fucking gorgeous, yes. But insufferable.

A crease lived between his dark brows, and his mouth was drawn.

But those eyes—there’s something deeper there than he lets on.
She leaned against the door and stared at him. “How’s your pain level on a scale of one to ten, according to that chart?” She gestured toward a mint-green paper taped to the wall, sporting ten faces in various stages of distress.

“Ten,” he said, his eyes unwavering.

“Is that so? I’m sorry to hear it. One would think a big strong cowboy who gets hurled off the backs of two-thousand-pound beasts could handle a little postsurgical pain. Ah, no matter.” She came forward, withdrawing a pen from her pocket but concealing it in her palm.

He waved her away. “Get out of here with that syringe. Damn, girl, you’re a wildcat.”

“Let me show you my claws.” She grinned and uncapped the pen with her teeth.

Realization sparked in his eyes. He leveled his gaze at her. “You gonna try to pump me full of ink for my pain? Try it and you’ll be sorry, Whiskey.”

She jerked to a stop. Confusion settled in her mind, but warmth tightened her belly. He had a nickname for her?
