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*

Wilted Orchid (Mafia Wars) by Loxley Savage

This is the forth book in a shared world series called Mafia Wars. Each book is a standalone.

I was sold to my enemies…

The rivalry between the Italians of the Outfit and the Cosa Nostra has been ongoing for decades. So imagine my terror when I find myself, the daughter of the Cosa Nostra’s boss, at the bitter end of a raw deal with the heirs of the Outfit.

Now I’m a casualty of a so-called ‘peace treaty,’ forced into the calloused, blood-stained hands of the Moretti brothers.

Salvatore, Armani, and Fausto.

The handsome faces of the Outfit bosses don’t hide the monsters that lurk beneath. They claim I’m theirs, that my life was forfeited to them in a pact sealed with my dead father’s blood. But they’re not the only ones who want to own me.

When someone from my past lurks in the dark corners of my new existence, things turn from bad to worse. My cries for help are lost, buried among the chaos of the Moretti’s dark world.

My life was never mine. And now, if I don’t figure a way out of this, I’ll become the next victim of the Mafia Wars.

This book was absolutely fantastic, and this one hit the feels. The characters were brilliant and I loved the storyline.

Valentina was a fantastic character. She was so innocent and was literally clueless about the treaty. She finds out about it on the absolute worst way and I really felt for her. Her father was the worst for arranging it the way he did. I loved her development and how she grew in confidence. She was strong to get through everything after the way she was treated.

The boys were great characters. I loved Armani and Fausto. They didn’t mistreat her and did their best to make her feel good. I loved watching the relationship grow between them.

Salvatore was a complicated character. I absolutely hated him for the majority of the book. His hatred towards her ran so deep because of her family name and her father. His treated her the absolute worst. He did, however, redeem himself eventually. I wanted to see him grovel and by the end when he did confess his love, I liked him. I felt for Val with his treatment towards her, and then when they finally grew close, it hit the feels.

Salvatore and Valentina both deserved their happiness. She was the light that he needed. I loved watching all three men grow close to her and the scenes between them were on fire.

It was a nice change to see the wedding at the end rather than the beginning. It was necessary for the treaty, but I loved how they got married in the end because they wanted to, and not because they had to.

Marco and that drama was a good addition to the storyline and I loved the twist at the end when it was dealt with.

Overall, I absolutely loved this book and I would definitely recommend it.

My rating: 5/5*

Ruining Dahlia (Mafia Wars) by C. R. Jane

This is the third book in a shared world series called Mafia Wars. Each book is a standalone.

I was sold to my enemies. And not just my enemies. I was sold to monsters.

I should know all about how to survive monsters though, I come from a family of them.

We aren’t Butchers in name only, and surely the Rossi family can’t be as bad as the devil that’s been destroying me since I was eight years old.

New York City, the powerful head of the Cosa Nostra, is my new home. Where Lucian, Raphael, and Gabriel Rossi now think they own me.

The thing they don’t realize is that I’m more than what I seem.

A dahlia has always bloomed best in the light, and even though everything about this place and these men is shrouded in darkness, I’m determined to thrive…to win.

They play a game for keeps, a game where the only rule is that there are no rules.

They want to ruin me. But what disturbs me most is that I just might like it.

It’s me against them, and only time will tell If I’ll be the winner or be destroyed in these cruel and merciless Mafia Wars.

This book was brilliant to read. The characters were great and the story was fantastic.

Dahlia was a fantastic main character. She was strong considering what she had been through in the past. I loved seeing her tackle her demons in the end. I also loved watching her grow close to the three boys.

The boys were great and all so different. Gabriel was such a sweetheart towards her and I just loved him. Lucian was a great character, but I think if it wasn’t for his POV chapters, I would have taken a lot longer to come around to him. He had his demons and unfortunately, he took them out on her at times. Raphael was another broken soul. I liked him, and then I hated him, and then I loved him. These boys just needed to communicate. Even though they were brothers, they didn’t really understand each other as well as they thought.

I loved the development of their characters, and their relationship with Dahlia. She seemed to just click with them as the story progressed and I loved watching them accept sharing her. They all saved each other ultimately. They scenes between them were hot as well.

Overall, this book was a fantastic addition to the Mafia Wars series. I loved the characters and the storyline. I would definitely recommend it.

My rating: 5/5*

Bait by Jade West

This is a standalone.

A stranger online. Dark hair and even darker eyes that knew my dirty desires before I did.
A fantasy that should never be spoken. But he pulled the confession from me.
And now he’s coming for me.
Rough. Dirty. Dangerous.
It’s supposed to be one night to get me off and make me forget.
He’ll make me his and I’ll pretend I don’t want him to.
I’ll run and he’ll chase.
Because I asked him for this.
I begged him for this.

Tonight, in the darkness, he’s the hunter.
And I’m the bait.

I really enjoyed reading this book. The characters were brilliant, the plot was good and there were some hot scenes.

The premise may have been a little wrong with what Abigail asked for. Asking a stranger online to basically jump you and hunt you clearly is a little messed up, and yet it was so good to read. For her to get to that point shows how badly she got hurt in the past.

Leo clearly had his problems to agree to it. He craved the hunt and he really did take things to a new level with his stalking. Yet, I loved him. As the book went on, you learn about what happened and they grow close to each other. In the end, I absolutely loved these characters and I really felt for them. The scenes between them were on fire, the spark clearly there, even when they didn’t know each other. I loved seeing them grow their relationship into something real.

The ending was good where everything gradually came together to give them the happy ending they deserved.

This book was dirty and wrong and yet so good to read. The characters were brilliant and you eventually understood them. Overall, I loved reading this book and I would definitely recommend it.

My rating: 5/5*

Gunmetal Lily (Mafia Wars) by Rebecca Royce

This is the second book in a shared world series called Mafia Wars. Each book is a standalone.

I was sold to my enemies.

There was a deal made to keep the peace. War wasn’t good for business. But deals were broken all the time. What did these powerful families have as collateral? Their daughters. A decade earlier, they decided that we were expendable, that we could be sold in marriage to keep their dealings honest. I didn’t matter more than the security I could bring to the marketplace. I was twelve when they decided that, in ten years, I’d belong to the Hernandez family. Everyone knew what was coming for me. Everyone…except me.

I have no choices. The daughter of mobsters, I now belong to the Mexican Cartel. But even the terrible images those words evoke are nothing compared to what is coming for me. My new family will discover I am more than just a pawn in their chess game. I’m named after a flower, but I don’t wilt. I am determined to come out ahead in their Mafia Wars.

I loved this book. The characters were fantastic and the storyline was brilliant.

Lily was a brilliant character. She found out about the arranged marriage, like, a day before. Considering who some of the families were, it could have been a horrible situation, but I think she actually got lucky. She’s a strong character throughout and I loved her relationship with the three brothers.

Alejandro was a fantastic character. I loved him. Considering who he was, he was kind. He did everything to make Lily happy. I felt for him and his past, and I loved Lily’s reaction to it. It was brilliant watching their relationship develop. Watching him fall for her was probably the best part of this book for me.

Francisco and Javier were fantastic as well. I loved their loyalty to their brother. They were kind to Lily as well. I loved watching them fall for her and I loved the relationship develop between them.

The plot was good. Someone was betraying the family and ultimately, Lily paid the price. I loved the devotion her three men had and the lengths they went to for her. The ending was good and it was nice to see everyone happy. They ultimately did everything to make her the happiest she could be.

Overall, this book was a brilliant continuation the the Mafia Wars series. I loved the characters and the story.

I would definitely recommend it.

My rating: 5/5

Binding Rose (Mafia Wars) by Ivy Fox

This is the first book in a shared world series called Mafia Wars. Each book is a standalone.

I was sold to my enemies.

You would think that being forced into a loveless marriage to ensure an alliance would be unheard of in this day and age. And in most cases, you would be correct in that assumption.

But not for me.

A cartel princess has no vote on who she can or cannot marry—much less love.
Any decision in my life was forfeited just by being born into the most powerful Mexican cartel there is.

Still, it does sting that I’m to be hand-delivered to the Irish mob and marry into the Kelly family, who my own brother has coined to be nothing more than bloodthirsty savages.

They’re animals, Rosa. Filthy, unscrupulous, vicious animals.

Those were his exact words, yet he still followed our father’s orders to walk me down the aisle, making sure I didn’t run from my obligation.

As if that was even an option.

All my choices were stolen away from me the minute I became another pawn to be used and abused at the hands of evil men.

Which leaves me to question…

Can a rose blossom in the dark?
Or will I have to rely on my thorns to protect me against the fate that’s been bestowed upon me?

Only time will tell if I’ll survive this cursed life or become another lost soul in these cruel and merciless Mafia Wars.

I absolutely loved this book. The storyline was brilliant, the characters were great and the plot developed well.

The book sets the world and situation up well. We’re introduced to the Mafia Wars and the different families involved.

I absolutely loved Rosa. She was sold to the Kelly family as part of the treaty where she’s forced to marry Tiernen. She’s an incredibly strong character to put up with him. He was a right dick at the beginning, blaming her for something which wasn’t her fault. She was such a kind hearted person, but she knew what was like and what her role was.

Tiernen was a frustrating character, but I grew to love him. He despised her because of her family. He was forced into the marriage as much as she was. Just when they started to connect, he withdraws. From there on he was a right dick, especially when he brought Shay and Colin into the situation.

I loved Shay and Colin. They cared and looked out for Rosa and I loved the connection between them from the start. They were always going to fall for each other after the situation Tiernen put them in.

I loved how the plot developed. Tiernen had a fantastic development and seeing his POV only made you love him more by the end. He had to change and he did. The three of them were brilliant with Rosa by the end and there were definitely some hot moments at times. The ending was brilliant.

This book was a fantastic start and introduction to this shared world. The characters were fantastic and I’m intrigued to read the others. Even though they are all standalones, we met Tiernen’s sister before her own wedding as well as Rosa’s brother before his.

Overall, I loved this book and I would definitely recommend it.

My rating: 5/5*
