Carnage (Four Horsemen Book 1) by Sarah Bailey

This is the first book in the Four Horsemen series.

Prescott Ellis – Pestilence.

They call us The Four Horsemen.
Four friends forged in fire and blood.
No one knows where we came from nor how we got our name.
Drake, Francis, West and I rule the financial industry like kings.
Gods in our own right.

We grew up with a fifth. A girl. Scarlett.
She was one of us until she was ripped away from her life. The only trace of her was dust in the wind.

One day she returned to the city and sought us out. Scarlett couldn’t remember who we’d been to her, but we recalled her all too well.

If she knew what was good for her, she would have never come back. The moment she stepped through the doors of Fortuity, it was the beginning of her end. And the start of our reign over the girl who wanted us dead.

I loved reading this book. The characters are brilliant and the storyline is great.

I love Scarlett and I don’t half feel sorry for her. The four men know her but she can’t remember them. She’s a strong character with some bite, given how they treat her. She’s fighting two battles really. The reason her parents have sent her there, and how she truly feels. The connection she has with the men is strong because they know where and yet she doesn’t know that.

I love the four men. Prescott, Francis, Drake and West are all so different and I like them all. They have their plans with the situation and so despite their feelings, they are treating her a little harshly. I’m looking forward to learning more about each of them and watching their characters develop.

Their plans are only mentioned. We don’t know what happened ten years ago, only that she was taken from them and had an accident. I’m desperate to know what their ultimate plan is and what actually happened. They won’t tell her the truth because they know why she’s been sent there. There’s a lot of secrecy going on.

As much as the vagueness is frustrating, it makes for a great book because I’m desperate to read the next now.

I love the scenes between the men and her. They were pretty hot. She feels she doesn’t have a choice, and really she didn’t, but there’s also a natural spark there. I like the glimpses of emotion from them all until they hide them again.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this book. The storyline is great and the characters are brilliant. I’m looking forward to reading the next book.

My rating: 5/5*

Praise (Salacious Players’ Club) by Sara Cate

This is the first book in the series which can also be read as a standalone.

He calls me perfect.

His flawless pet.

His good girl.

Broken down and wounded by my emotionally neglectful ex, I wanted someone to tell me I was good enough.

Then, I stumbled into a new job with a boss who brings me to my knees—literally. He has me do things a real secretary would never do.

Emerson Grant tells me I’m more than just good enough.

I’m worthy of his praise.

There are a million reasons why I should stay away. The owner of the Salacious Players’ Club is not just my new boss, he’s twice my age.

And my ex-boyfriend’s father.

With him, I am treasured. I am adored. I am his.

I’m a good girl, but I’m falling for the wrong man.

Emerson Grant knows what he wants—

And he wants me.

So how far will I go to hear his approval?

This book was far better than I expected. It was brilliant with fantastic characters and a good storyline.

Emerson Grant. Holy shit, where do I find one? He was a fantastic character. He’s so alpha male and yet incredibly caring. He ticks every box. Charlotte was a great character as well. They meet under unusual circumstances, Emerson mistaking her for someone else. They just click though, the spark there from the beginning. I loved watching her grow and becoming stronger during the book.

The sexual tension was almost painful to read. I understand their reservations because of Beau, but it just kept building and building. It was a relief when they finally gave in. I loved the dynamic between them and how it developed. Emerson became a little frustrating over not telling his son, but you could also understand it a little. Only a little. Honestly, Beau didn’t deserve an explanation. It wasn’t his place after how he treated her. You can’t help who you fall in love with, right?

It’s safe to say that if you didn’t have a praise kink before this book, you probably will after. Good that man, I really don’t blame Charlotte for falling for him.

The plot was good and developed well. The scenes were smoking hot when they eventually gave in to the tension, but there was more on top of the sex. Family was at the core of it with gaining understanding and acceptance from everyone.

Overall, I really enjoyed the book and would definitely recommend it. The characters were brilliant, the scenes were hot and the storyline was good.

My rating: 5/5*

mybook.to/Darkempire1

They say curiosity killed the cat. Well curiosity almost killed me. One peek and I was running for my life.
Unfortunately, running didn’t save me.

When I was dragged to Ethan Prezello, I didn’t expect to walk away with my life.
In fact, I didn’t get to walk away at all, but I was lucky to still be breathing.
I was captured by the dark, damaged man, and now he won’t let me go.

The more I get dragged into his dark world, the more I don’t want to leave.
The darkness in him calls to me and I find myself powerless to refuse its call.

He may have captured me, but his damaged soul helped me choose to stay.

This is the first book in a dark, MFM Menage romance series.

Paradise (The Paradise Club Book 1) by JA Low

This is the first book in the Paradise Club series which can also be read as a standalone.

WELCOME TO PARADISE. MY BUSINESS IS YOUR PLEASURE.

My name’s Nate Lewis, owner of The Paradise Club.
I can bring every little dirty fantasy you have ever dreamed of to reality.
My business is your pleasure. I’m good at it.
So good it’s made me a wealthy and powerful man.
I have one rule—never mix business and pleasure, and I’ve lived by it from day one.

Until her.

I enjoyed reading this book. The characters were good and the storyline was great.

Camryn was a good character. She gets seriously hurt at the start by Harris. She is adamant to stay out of a relationship after which you can understand.

Nate is brilliant. Considering that he owned a sex club, he wasn’t that arrogant nor a dick like you’d expect. I loved seeing his romantic side grow.

Cam and Nate have known each other for a little while before they get together. When she finds herself single, he goes for it. I loved watching their relationship grow and develop. I like how it develops slow. It starts casual and grows. It was great to watch them get to know each other properly and see them realise their true feelings towards each other.

Harris was a dick. I’m glad he got what he deserved. The ending took a turn I didn’t see coming, but it ended great in the end after some time.

The scenes were hot, however I was expecting a little more spice. That might just be because of the last books I’ve recently read. Nevertheless, they were good and got between Cam and Nate.

Overall, I enjoyed reading this book and would definitely recommend it.

My rating: 5/5*

Six MORE by James Crow

This is the third book in the Six series.

Emma Jane came into my life as a client – client number SIX
I opened her up to a whole new world of kinky pleasure.
She begged me to take it further and became my TOY
And then she became my wife – my insatiable wife.
Now, her birthday is coming up. What would I give my sex-mad wife?
The answer was simple. I’d give her more.
A whole lot MORE

I enjoyed reading this book. It was a hot, fun story covering Emma’s birthday.

Jonathon is the best. I’d say everyone needs a Jonathan, but I’m sure a lot of people couldn’t handle him. He wants to give his wife, Emma, everything, but he gets stuck for a birthday treat. Of course, Fiona saves the day.

Emma had grown massively through the series and it really does show here. She embraces everything Jonathan throws at her for her birthday getaway. She is definitely one lucky girl.

I absolutely love Suki and the relationship they both have with her. Whereas it’s probably unconventional to most people, it works with Emma and Jonathan and they’re lifestyle. I love how she went along with them both on their getaway. She’s a great character.

I love the relationship they both have. Emma embraced the lifestyle that Jonathan offered her, and together they are a strong pair. Their love is clear and stronger than ever.

The scenes were as hot as ever in this book. It was a brilliant read. Overall, this was a fun, hot book which I would definitely recommend.

My rating: 5/5*

Six Toy by James Crow

This is the second book in the series.

Emma,
Moving in with Jonathon Gold was a whole new wonderful life. It felt like I’d been plucked from another dimension and dropped into a carnal nirvana, with endless rabbit holes of exploration just waiting for me to tumble down them. And gladly I tumbled – until I wanted more.

I wanted to be Head Girl, to service clients, especially when The Judge made enquiries for a day with a plaything. I thought I was strong enough. I thought I was on top of this newfound promiscuous game, but I was wrong.

Jonathon Gold had demons in his closet. Thing is, Jonathon’s closet turned out to be real, and if I really wanted to nail my man, really wanted to learn the art of the submissive and face The Judge and his perverted kinks, I’d have to live it first, in that sordid little room, and become Jonathon’s toy for a day without a squeak of complaint.

Then I’d face The Judge.

Giving is receiving, so Jonathon tells me.

I’m pretty sure I can do that.

Jonathon,
Emma Jane brings bubbly brightness to my world. She’s sexy, gorgeous, naïve and vulnerable, and her enthusiasm for her new life lifts me, really lifts me. I love her, my dirty girl, and I know in my heart it’s a love that will last forever, but right now she’s a rookie, an over-confident rookie.

The best way for rookies to learn is to be thrown in at the deep end, is it not? And it couldn’t get any deeper than The Judge – a man-mountain of depravity.

The last time he visited, he took charge of the closet for a day of filthy debauchery, but the door to that seedy little hole has been locked for almost two years.

Demons await me in that room, and demons either need to be purged or danced with, don’t they?
If Emma wants more, she has to earn it. And earn it she will when I unlock that door.
~~~

Emma Jane must learn the art of the true submissive before she can become Head Girl, but Jonathon has demons to struggle with as he takes her down the steamy path to subservient bliss.

I loved reading this book. I love the characters and I enjoyed the story. The kink got heavier and filthier and the ending was brilliant.

Holy hell, the kink was on a whole new level in this book. There was kinks I had never even heard of. It was pure filth. It had me squirming in every way at times, both in the good and the bad way. It definitely isn’t for the light hearted, especially when it came to The Closet.

Jonathan is a brilliant character. He loves Emma and he wants to do what’s best for her and help her to grow. Emma is also a brilliant character. She is becoming a whole new person with him, stronger, empowered and happy, until she wants more.

The Closet intrigued me leading up to it, and the preparation Jonathan puts her through only heightens that. We don’t find out much about it until it happens. Even with the duel POV, it keeps you thinking. It was a ride reading the Closet scene, and parts of it surprised me. I felt for Emma at times, and then Jonathan’s thoughts added a new dimension. Emma was incredibly strong but she learnt a lot in her experience.

The duel POV is what makes this book. Seeing his thoughts and scheming and then Emma’s thoughts as she experiences it. It’s brilliant.

Leading up to the Judge, I had mixed feelings. I didn’t want her to go through with it, and then when it came to that time, I was left completely and utterly surprised. I didn’t see that coming.

Jonathan, that man and his secretive planning.

This story was just as much Suki’s story as it was Emma and Jonathan’s. Her past ripped at my heart and then the revelation at the end… It was fantastic.

This entire book was brilliant and the plot developed great. The ending was perfect, if not a little surprising. I absolutely loved reading it and I would definitely recommend it.

My rating: 5/5*

Six by James Crow

This is the first book in the series.

I sell more than sex. I sell experiences.
My clients are women of taste and style, with money to lavish on their most intimate fantasies.

The contract is clear: Absolute confidentiality. No limits. 100% satisfaction guaranteed.
I take them to that place in the half-light, where pleasure blurs with pain, and sex becomes so much more. Beautiful filth, sweet and dirty and so fucking delicious. They take it all and always come back for more.

I’m in it for the money, and maybe the pleasure, too.
I don’t do emotional involvement. Ever. I’m a professional, and this is business.

Until she walks in.
Client number SIX
And things get really fucking complicated.

I really enjoyed reading this book. The characters were great, the plot was good and the heat level was off the charts. It was pure filth at times.

This book was nothing like I expected. Jonathon was a brilliant character and I loved Emma. Their relationship had sparks very early on, even given the circumstances. I think what made this book was the duel POV. Seeing the story unwind from both of their views was what made the story.

I loved seeing Emma grow as a person and I loved Jonathan even more for making that happen. I wanted him to do the right thing at the end, and he did. He saved her.

Emma’s aunt Fiana… What a lady. She surprised me at the end.

Suki was just adorable, and this book has you wondering what brought to there.

There was a hell of a lot of smoking hot sex, but it didn’t take away from the story. It added to it. It definitely isn’t for the faint heartwd because it is very kink heavy.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this book. It was scorching to read, he characters were brilliant and the story was fantastic. I would definitely recommend it.

My rating: 5/5*

Steel Empire (Broken Cross Book 3) by Bri Blackwood

This is the third book in the Broken Cross series, and the last of Damien and Anais story.

Our bond is steel.

We began to rebuild what we had,

Because I’m determined to make things right.

Someone is out to ruin me,

And they’re using Anais to do it.

Danger threatened to take her from me forever.

But what they don’t know, 

Is when someone threatens what is mine,

There will be hell to pay

I enjoyed this book. It was a great ending to Damien and Anais’ story.

Damien and Anais were great characters. It was brilliant to see them both admit their true feelings for one another. The events at the beginning made them both realise the truth.

I think Damien in particular has had a brilliant character development. He really starts to open up to Anais in this book, and yet he is still the alpha at times. I’ve loved reading his story with Anais.

The storyline developed well and everything was all cleared up nicely. The plot complemented the character development well. The end was great and it also sets up well for Grace and Broderick’s story in the next book.

Overall, I’ve enjoyed reading this series and would definitely recommend it.

My rating: 5/5*

Scarred Empire (Broken Cross Book 2) by Bri Blackwood

This is the second book in the Broken Cross series.

She is scarred. 

When I stormed into her life, it was supposed to be temporary. 

Anais was supposed to be like the rest,

Then I became addicted.

My past caught up with me and she walked out before I could make her mine.

Tragedy strikes and I have no choice but to bring her back into my world.

In order to protect her, I convince her to wear my ring.

But I fear even I can’t protect her from the turmoil we’re about to face.

I loved the continuation of this story. The plot is great and the characters are brilliant.

Anais is a great character. She sticks up for herself and tried fighting back against Damien’s controlling ways, but ultimately, she realises that he hasn’t given her a choice once again. You kind of feel sorry for her.

Damien is fantastic, but he is also frustrating. He gives Anais no choice but to agree to be with him, which is definitely an arsehole move. She just wants to know that he actually wants her and he doesn’t show her that. I love his character development though and how he starts to see her more and realise what she needs. He starts listening. I really hope that he just opens up more and tells her how he really feels.

I like the plot and it’s development. Someone is messing with them and it’s not until right at the end that we find out more. It definitely surprised me and I’m certain that Damien is going to rain hell until he finds Anais.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book and I’m looking forward to reading the next one. I would definitely recommend this series.

My rating: 5/5*

Savage Empire (Broken Cross Book 1) by Bri Blackwood

This is the first book in the Broken Cross series.

He’s a savage

Damien Cross treats New York City as if it’s his personal playground.

He sees.

He touches.

He conquers.

He holds the fate of my family in his hands

And makes a deal with me I can’t refuse.

He’ll forgive my father’s debt if he can have something in exchange: me.

I promised myself I wouldn’t get addicted, but nothing is guaranteed when you make a deal with a savage.

Now this debt is my cross to bear.

I really enjoyed this book. The storyline was good and I liked the characters.

I liked Anais. She was strong enough to deal with Damien’s shit and knew when to put her foot down, especially at the end. I think he needed that reality check. She wasn’t given any choice but to accept his demands.

I loved Damien even though he was an arsehole at times. He was growing to truly like her but his inability to face his demons cost him. I hope he opens up more to her.

I loved the tension and spark between them. Their bodies crave each other. I’m looking forward to seeing their relationship develop more.

The ending was very unexpected and I’m looking forward to seeing where it leads.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this book and I’m looking forward to reading the next one in the series.

My rating: 5/5*
