A swashbuckling adventure set in outer space. Pasha is a slave and a male whore. He can’t remember his past only total allegiance to his owner. All this changes when a one-eyed pirate wins him for a day playing cards. When they’re alone, instead of fucking, the pirate kneels before him and calls him ‘your highness.’ Pasha, the slave, is really Lio, Helios Dayspring a king of a defeated people. This is only the beginning…
An Uncommon Whore takes you on a whirlwind ride across the universe. The one-eyed pirate is really Captain Griffin Hawker, and they were once lovers. They escape, but Lio has a slave chip in his head. To keep Lio from going mad, Griffin is forced to imprint him aka have sex, to lock in his authority as his new owner. The story sweeps you along…they meet and recruit Carlotta, who turns out to be Lio’s sister-in-law…and on it goes...sword fights...blasters, and more. Lio regains his memory. The story ends when Griffin, Carlotta, and Lio return to their new home planet. Who can they trust? That question will be addressed in book two of the series. I like that the story uses subheadings to let you know the perspective as the story is written in the first person. The man on man sex between Griffin and Lio is very graphic. The author doesn’t leave anything to the imagination. Some of the later sex scenes are just too much. Less is more here. A couple of the scenes, I felt are contrived and don't move the story along. The plot hints at conspiracies and betrayals but doesn’t resolve them. Book two of the series…maybe?
The story lives up to its title…an uncommon whore. An enjoyable, science fiction, adventure romp.
REVIEW: Paint it Black by Julia Talbot
This is a fun, silly quickie. Simple plot, Rezoth is a master demon who sends a lesser demon, Lemus, an incubus, to collect sexual energy from humans. Lemus is good at his job--his specialty is men, and he returns awash with energy. Rezoth offers Lemus a reward and is surprised when Lemus wants to make love to him.
The sex between them is a little over-the-top and tongue-in-cheek but an incubus is made for sex. There are explicit sexual descriptions that will get you hot. Quickly, Lemos is promoted to Rezoth’s personal body slave and collared. Lemos is happy as he doesn’t have to return to the human dimension, but stay and worship Rezoth. This doesn’t last long. One job of a master demon is to hear petitions from other demons. Rezoth doesn’t rule in Farol’s favor, and Farol, is stupid enough to kidnap Lemos. Rezoth follows Farol to the human dimension to save the man he loves. This is a quick read to waste an hour. Comedy wasn’t listed as a genre, but this story made me chuckle. The ending is definitely happy-ever-after…
Lemos is chained to Rezoth for an eternity in hell. Guess that means two demons discovered heaven in hell!
The title definitely doesn’t give the plot away, and it did catch my eye. This is primarily a drama set in the future. The solar system is colonized, but the further out you live…the lower you are on the totem pole. The story is set on lawless Callisto where basically anything goes. There is romance between Rina Genovese, the eldest estranged daughter of the biggest mob boss moon-side, and Akono Sweet, the owner of a gambling and brothel house.
The story switches between Rina and Akono’s perspective. Rina is forced by her father to return to the fold and manage Akono’s gambling house but romance happens. Alkono has a submissive streak and Rina a dominant one. This isn’t erotica. The sex is minimal and not described in excessive detail. I don’t like giving away the plot but at a high level, Rina’s younger brother, Luna, wants her out of the way and persuades Vincent Genovese, the father, to frame her. It’s fast moving with multiple twists and an explosive finale. There are a number of loose ends left open at the happy-for-now close…I suspect a sequel is in the works.
I enjoyed A Gamble Among Sheep and recommend it to science fiction lovers.
To be honest, the title spoke to me. It happens occasionally. This time, the story met the hype.
It’s Simon’s third summer tour on the ice of Antarctica at McMurdo Station, and there’s no sunrise until August. He’s one of the worker bees, a janitor. One of the scientists on the base, Asher, is studying the auroras, and Simon cannot stop lusting after him. The summer months are quiet because of the harsh weather and the total darkness. All the workers are on a first-name basis, and Simon’s friends start to pull his leg about his obsession with Asher and sex-less existence.
Eventually, they bump into each other and chat. The first few chapters expand this theme and end with a wager. Simon watches Asher, but their paths don’t cross. To compensate, he creates a dominant ‘fantasy Asher’ which leads to an excellent masturbation scene.Then in a twist, Asher is shy and wants to date. Simon wants to get the deed done. The author stays in Simon’s perspective. You experience firsthand how Simon’s behavior changes. Initially, he doesn’t date…then he does, and finally they have sex. Simon wants to spend all his spare time with Asher, but Asher frightened him by talking about what could happen after the tour is over. Every romance must have conflict, and this one is all over the wager. Asher overhears Simon and his friends talking and leaves. Simon is heartbroken as Asher avoids any further contact. Then one friend informs him Asher is departing. What will Simon do? I don’t like to give a story away, but this is a happy-for-now romance.
I enjoyed the slow progression through the story. There are a couple of explicit man on man sex scenes toward the end. They so hot! I enjoyed the description of Simon’s agony…the final acceptance that he was falling in love, and Asher was leaving without knowing.
This is not a long story, but it’s a feel-good romance and one I enjoyed and recommend.
REVIEW: Trickster by Alice Gaines
Grace has a boring job and no friends…her only enjoyment is playing a computer game, SexScape. She’s reached level 1023 but as usual a guy turns up on a motorbike zooms around the screen and ruins everything. Then…take a deep breath…she’s sucked into the game.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this silly quickie. It’s simple sexy escapism. It’s a girl meets boy romance and as the game is called SexScape … lots of sex. The man on the motorbike whose avatar in the game kept foiling her attempts to win the level turns out to be a hunk of a man who goes by the name Trickster. For some reason even though she’s lonely in real life, in this game world she’s beautiful and the Trickster wants sex. The story oscillates between Trickster and Grace’s perspective. The only conflict is Grace insists it is all a dream and for Trickster to keep the love of his life, she must believe the game world is real. Suspend disbelief and go with the flow. The sex scenes are not forced or too long and do flow with the story. They’re smoking hot. The descriptions of Trickster wearing tight leather jeans and the obvious bulge are second to none. The sex scene in the hot spring starts steamy with drinking from a phallic flower and… well, I enjoyed it.
Trickster is a fun story that doesn’t take too long to read and delivers!
Suspend belief, and you’ll enjoy this adventure story. It starts with a picnic—interrupted by a dragon helping himself to a human snack and taking two more for dinner, Audra. A solitary warrior, Griffin, saves the maiden from being eaten by the dragon, Malik. Surprise surprise, she fancies her savior from first sight. The dragon escapes. Griffin, who turns out to be the last dragon hunter follows, and Audra accompanies him on a quest to kill Malik.
The story has some interesting twists. Audra has special blood and previously undiscovered powers. The relationship between Audra and Griffin develops, and there are a couple of blush worthy scenes, but the main story is the dragon hunt. Griffin is a mystery man, an anachronism, a dragon slayer in a world that no longer believes in magic. By the ending, there's another twist. The fight scenes are descriptive. In some ways, I’d have preferred the story written as a young adult adventure story without the sex scenes. The ending is predictable. That said, Dragons beware! True Love's Kiss is a good read!
Want a book to cheer you up? Not complicated. A feel-good story. A quickie. This one’s for you.
Mercedes’ a sexy barmaid. Scott is trying to sell a new brand of beer to the bar. Sparks fly, but Mercedes keeps him at arm’s length. Fate takes a hand. She’s struggling with a lock…he helps out…they kiss. She gives him her phone number.
The story flips between their two perspectives, and there isn’t any head-hopping. You discover their hopes…desires…and fears. Don’t want to spoil the story…but, when Scott tries to call, it’s a wrong number. He thinks he’s been played. Mercedes gave her real number and can’t understand why he didn’t call. Cameron keeps you in suspense. Eventually…they have sex, but Scott doesn’t want a relationship! This is one bumpy road to true love. Hint the ending is happy-ever-after. Mercedes character is well developed…and, I rooted for her. It took a while for Scott to grow on me. I couldn’t understand why he only wanted sex. It is explained. The sex scenes are hot and descriptive…especially the kisses! I loved this one dance scene with plenty of bumping, grinding and groping. The sex scenes flow and felt part of the story…not plugged in.
In my opinion, this is a recommended read and should be on your TBR pile. I enjoyed Risking it with Scott.
REVIEW: Burden by K.C. Wells
The story starts in a courtroom, Randy, a key undercover cop, who helped bring a human trafficker to justice is there and one of the male prostitutes, Jesse, who turned state evidence. After the sentencing, they both try to carry on with their lives—Randy works in vice. Jesse goes back to the only job he knows, working Johns. The story slowly builds…Randy questions his own sexuality and with the advice of a gay neighbor, finally accepts he has feelings for his own sex and one in particular…Jesse. Jesse always fancied Randy, but a vice cop and a hooker is not on the cards. Because of the court case publicity, his family disowns him, forcing him to live hand-to-mouth and sleeping on friend’s couches. Can they find any kind of happy ending together?
I enjoyed how the author pulled me into this relationship. If you want hard sex, you have to wait. When you get to that part, it leaves nothing to the imagination. Yum! The story still drove me to read more. Jesse’s feelings for Randy force him to run. Randy is forced to confront his true self and hunts him down…as a good cop should…leading to a happy-for-now ending. For me, this is a recommended romance read. The characters are well developed complete with insecurities and believable depth. You're sucked in and end up rooting for both of them…an enjoyable story.
REVIEW: It's in the Mix by Ayla Ruse
The story is a simple boy meets girl plot, except the girl is a fairy—complete with wings--who despises humans. The story flips between Aisling and Daniel’s perspectives. Aisling and her sister, Lena, are in Massachusetts from Ireland to arrange the return of a beer shipment as it contained a love potion allowing you to discover your true love. The visit takes longer than expected due to customs issues, so they’re working the bar to help out Dirv, the leprechaun owner. Aisling fancied Daniel as soon as they met…but he’s a human! Dirv steps in to help kick-start the romance by getting both Daniel and Aisling to drink the love potion contaminated beer.
This is a fun quickie and a great pick-me-up. I enjoyed it, plus the sex scenes will get you going…it’s not quite a one-hand-read. Sparks fly. All good romances can’t be plain sailing, so first Aisling has cold feet…it’s only the potion, then Daniel…she despises humans, how could she love me? Don’t want to spoil the plot…but it is a happy-ever-after ending. The sex is arousing and erotic at the same time. The combination worked for me. As I said early, it’s a quick read.
Definitely a recommended read, and I’ll keep watch for more stories by Ayla Ruse.
REVIEW: Adjusting Addie by R.J. Gray
At one level this is a simple romance story between Addie—who thinks she’s fat, and Brad—a big brooding ex-marine, domestic discipline advocate, and now a chiropractor. Hint, read the pun in the title. At a second level, it follows Addie’s passion for her work. She’s a social worker and supervises parental visits to foster children and reports to court on the parent’s progress. Unfortunately, Addie does get attached to the children…and one, Lindsey, she worries about as her father, Whitehall, appears false in his behavior. She can’t put her finger on what exactly she doesn’t like.
Don’t be put off by the apparent disconnect between the Prologue and Chapter one. All will become clear in a few chapters, and the story is worth the effort. The romance between Brad and Addie progresses … with plenty of spanking. Addie relishes the role of submissive to Brad’s dominance. The sex is definitely blush worthy, but don’t read this book solely if you’re looking for hard dominance or explicit sexual situations. The underlying story is about Whitehall and his daughter Lindsey. Addie is convinced Lindsey should not be returned to her father, but there is no proof. The mother is missing and Addie worries Whitehall is responsible. Did he murder his wife? Brad has an old marine buddy in the police force. They discover ...
No spoilers in this review, it does have the happy-for-now romance ending and the prologue is fully explained.
I enjoyed the story, and Adjusting Addie is definitely a recommended read.
