Cara’s Review:

Wow! It’s been a while since I’ve written a review, been super busy…but I just finished this novel, and thought it was fantastic. I thought I’d share it with you guys, so you can enjoy it as well!

Forty-six year old Amber has saved for the vacation of a life time- the picturesque Highlands of Scotland. Little did she know that her vacation would be cut short by a portal to another another planet! This tale in an interesting twist to the male society with no females- the males don’t need females, they reproduce by cloning. But, when they realize how much fun females can be, there is no stopping them!

This is the going to be the first book in a great new series by Ms. McKnight- her debut novel. I thought the book was well written, and it was an interesting enough twist from the traditional male society needs females genre that it grabs your attention and holds it. Amber is a great heroine, and Kniam is a wonderful male. The most powerful man in the community, he is gently, passionate, and kind towards Amber.

I absolutely can’t wait to get my hands on the next novel in this series, and will be on the lookout for the net book. Oh, and wait till you find out where these guys came from! Another great twist. This book is great for those romance lovers out there, for those who love alien cultures, and for those seeking a great HAE book.

Tessa’s Review:
This book had me from the very start. I am a sucker for Military reads as the men are alpha males, but then the author went and added in the twist of Doms and the lifestyle of BDSM and the needed for revenge along with greed. It set the stage for one of my most beloved style of readings with danger at almost every turn. The characters are well developed and I am hooked on learning more about everyone of the SEALS that are mentioned and I do hope the author plans on telling the story of them all. This book is filled with sexual situations and female submission with every turn of the page. I am looking forward to reading book 2 Owning Sarah, to see how the rest of this story unfolds and how it continues from book 1. This is the first book by Julie Shelton I have read and I will be sure to watch for more of her books. Excellently written, kept me gripped in the events that unfolded.

I did have trouble with the fact though that she seems to lose herself and who she is, no longer having any say or control of her life, it was a bit harsh in spots especially with her safe word he said she would not be punished for using it.  However not being allowed to orgasm for 24 hours YET still BE USED, that is punishing her for using a safe word and that angered me greatly. I also felt that the Doms did not truly respect her as a person/human, viewed her mostly as a possession just to be toyed with and used as their personal sex toy….now with that said I understand the basis of the lifestyle having been involved in it myself for many years and there are different aspects for each D/s relationship, what works for one does not work for another.

Owning SarahOwning Sarah — by Julie Shelton

[Menage Amour: Erotic Consensual BDSM Menage a Trois Romance, M/M/F, pegging, spanking, flogging, whipping, sex toys, HEA] It’s been a month since Sarah Marshall was kidnapped and held at knifepoint by her ex-fiance. But Jesse Colter and Adam Sinclair, her two loving Doms, know that there is an even deadlier threat still out there–Ryder Malone. He blames both Sarah and Jesse for sending him to prison eight years ago for attempted rape, and he’s determined to make them pay. So, he begins a systematic campaign of terror and intimidation against them. But the danger he poses doesn’t end there. Set against the deepening love and commitment between Sarah, Jesse, and Adam, Owning Sarah is more than just a sexy, sensual, BDSM love story. It is a harrowing race against time for Jesse, Adam, and a team of former SEALs to stop one of the biggest arms-for-drugs deals in US history. And to rescue Sarah before Malone sells her to a human trafficker and she’s lost to her men forever. Note: This book contains topping by the heroine. ** A Siren Erotic Romance

Tessa’s Review:
This book is the second half of Loving Sarah, -continuation-, I loved this book, it doesn’t skip a beat you don’t miss out on anything from the first book to this second one. The characters continue to develop and the relationship grows stronger between the three of them. It is heavily filled with sexual content same as the first book. The D/s lifestyle remains foremost and sometimes overbearing throughout the entire book. However unlike the first book it’s more of a loving feeling. I delighted in the writing of the collaring Ceremony, that was extremely beautiful and very well thought out, clearly a case of loving embrace and support, excellent example in my opinion of how the lifestyle actually is, though most do not ever see it.

I enjoyed how the threat to Sarah and the guys as well was handled. I would have perhaps liked more intrigue and dangerous threatening encounters and a bit less of the sexual content, it was almost over done on that aspect. Kind of like a sexual over load if you will. When Sarah got her chance to shine it brought such a smile to my face I had to read that entire scene like 5 times, made me so very giddy that she got her moment, seeing what she got the chance to do I was very pleased, it allowed her to show them she was more than they thought she was.

Excellent read same as the first half. I hope to see some more stories about some of the others, and I will look for more books from this author to read as well.

Well, it doesn’t always happen that the sequel is as good as the first one, but Julie Shelton has that distinction! Don’t miss Loving Sarah and Owning Sarah!

Crystal’s Review:
I wanted to read this book just because of the title and the cover of the book. It just looked like something I would love to read.

Erica has been married to Shawn for several years. If only he had shown his true character before she said the words “I do.” She lives everyday wondering is she will die or be alive for another day. She’s in a very abusive relationship with a rogue vampire. She doesn’t know that other vampires are not like Shawn. The only outlet she has is college and her friend Kevin.

Kevin knows what Erica is going through but he can’t do anything to Shawn until Erica leaves him. What Erica doesn’t know is that Kevin and his family are vampires. Kevin runs a place called VCTF (Vampire Crime Task Force). This means he has the means to keep Erica safe. The other secret he is hiding is that she is his mate.

I loved this book. It made me love vampires even more. Kevin is the kind of vampire I would love to be with. Yes he blows up and can get angry but he is very patient and considerate of those he loves. He needs it all for Erica, who has a lot to get through. More than he knew to begin with. The author did a wonderful job bringing out the personalities of her characters. I can’t wait to read the other books in this series. I don’t know who they are about but I know I will love them.

Crystal’s Review:

When I saw the cover of this book I just had to read it. It looked very interesting and then I read what the book was about.

Laynee Conners has lived in a blind school since she was five years old when her mother died. Now all of a sudden when she turns twenty-one her dad comes to bring her home. She has never had a relationship with her dad and can’t understand why he wants to have something to do with her now. If only she knew that his plans to go camping involves in a plan to get rid of her.

David and Eric Rivers are shape-shifters and are called home to a family meeting. They are camoing out when they hear a man and his partner discussing getting rid of his blind daughter. They know that they need to find her before something happens to her. When Eric turns into his wolf he finds her surrounded by raw meat and a orange can of pop that has some drugs in it. When his wolf gets Laynee’s scent he knows she is his mate. When David sees her and his bear gets a hold of her scent he finds out that she is his mate to. So Laynee is the mate to a wolf and a bear.

This was a great story and I loved watching the boys interact with Laynee. She never let her blindness get her down and she is not ashamed of who she is. Eric and David has their hands full with Laynee and keeping her safe. This book was a great read and was exciting all the way through. I really enjoy reading books by this author and I will have to see if there is more books in this series so I can find out what happens next.

Crystal’s Review ~ Amanda’s Amorous Aliens by Rachel Clark

Amanda's Amorous AliensAmanda’s Amorous Aliens
by Rachel Clark

Aliens? Forget the fact that it was supposed to be the most important day in her life, ignore the evidence that someone sabotaged her test flight and years of hard work, and don’t even mention that it’s her goddamn birthday…Aliens? Seriously? But…hmmm…Ripped, gorgeous, deliciously sexy aliens…yumm-oh. Karriak-Sektannen wanted to be alone. He didn’t want, need, or welcome a female intruder, and with his time of telkobar close he didn’t need the distraction. And, if he had the choice over again, he’d buy a less sarcastic computer. Stupid pretend-personality programs…Amanda Hasbro has no choice—she’s stuck here until the rift in time reopens. Karriak-Sektannen is an interesting time-filling distraction, and things just get more fun when his brothers arrive. With a smart-ass computer that seems determined to undermine their resistance, can four alien brothers resist the adventurous and sexy human long enough to send her home? Note: There is no sexual relationship or touching for titillation between or among siblings.

Crystal’s Review:
Amanda has had to work hard to get to where she is just because she is a woman in a man’s world. After all of her hard work it is finally coming true. That is until the man who doesn’t want her to get any where calls off her project when she is in her space craft and she can’t eject. It gets even more weird when she finds out that she is sucked into a rift in time.

Karriak-Sektannen is in space by himself waiting for the person that he has been sent to check out. He only has a computer for company. When you listen to these two you can’t help but laugh at them. Everything seems to be working out until Amanda lands and he has to find a way to get her back to her time and Earth before his brothers come. That is when he won’t be able to think straight and his hormones will get the best of him.

I really want to say more but if I do I will be giving the story away. I am glad that I didn’t read any reviews on this book or the surprise I got wouldn’t have been all that great. I will just have to say that the way you meet his brother’s is one that I would love to see. I wish it would happen in real life. This is one book that you need to read and yes there is some toys and M/F/M/M.
