Bound By Honor (Men of Honor #1)
Damon Price loved Jesse, but problems in their relationship had come to a head right before Jesse left on his final mi...more
My goodreads friends have ratings on this one that are all over the map. I have friends that favorited this book and ones that gave it one star. I was prepared to either love it or hate it. What I wasn't really pre...more
“Yours, sweet boy…all goddamned yours.”
I honestly don't know where to start with this one!
First we have Damon , with his own shit. And then Tanner with a different kind of shit. For a while I thought it'd be impossible for them to work it out, but luckily for me, S.E. Jakes made them go through their shit-s and gave us another great book!
I loved the fact that the characters sort of 'battled' their way into love. It wasn't all gentle and lovey-dovey but raw and impassioned.
Others have criticised the appropriateness of the BDSM scene at the start of the book but because this wasn't actually a Dom/sub relationship I wasn't fazed by it. In the context of the story it made sense.
I read books like this for their escapist qualities. I don't...more
I had a problem when neither Tanner nor Damon made Joe and Hunt pay for their actions. They just disappeared from the story. Two alpha military males would not let Joe and Hunt just walk away after their vile acts.
I also wanted to know a...more
I knew nothing about this author, but found the reviews intriguing. I like emotional angst and dependency between characters. This story delivers on that, but I could not truly accept the reason the two protagonists find each other. But, it IS fiction; I do not know why I want things realistic. What I did not expect is how steamy-erotic and kinky the story begins, maintains, and ends. While there is a story line, the book is erotic and very descriptive. The meeting of the chara...more

Went something like: story. sex. story. sex. story? nope still sex. story but still centered on sex etc. etc. Could have still liked it even with the abundance of sex, which by the way at some point became just as entertaining as reading the dictionary (no offense to those of you who find immense enjoyment in that), but what really killed (murdered, dismembered, slaughtered, annihilated... *ahem* yeah, I think you get the picture...) it for me were the characters.
Not that I didn'...more

A promise forces two men to bare themselves…completely.
One year ago on a mission gone wrong, Tanner James failed to save the life of Jesse, his Army Ranger teammate. Before dying in that South American jungle, Jesse extracted a promise that won’t let Tanner rest until it’s fulfilled—no matter what it costs him.
Damon Price loved Jesse, but problems in their relationship had come to a head right before Jesse left on his final mission. Now a rel...more
Anyway, once you get past the first couple chapters (where I hit pause on this book), the story really doesn't revolve around BDSM anymore, although it remains on th...more
This isn't a full review simply because I'm anxious to get on with the series.
Since I discovered this series by reading an upcoming sequel
Catch a Ghost I already know there is a long way to go and good things to come. I didn't find the quality of the writing to be what I expected from the author, but I think it's going to improve as the series progresses. I liked the story and the characters, but didn't become emotionally involved. HOWEVER, the next book in this series has me intrigued. Some...more
Tanner James and Damon Price. Tanner is an Army Ranger who failed to save the life of his teammate, Jesse, one year prior. Damon is a club owner, well-known Dom, and Jesse's grieving BF. Before dying, Jesse extracted a promise from Tanner to go to Damon on the one-year anniversary of his death and sub for him for one night. One disastrous night turns into a steamy weekend.

Tanner goes to Damon's BDSM club to fulfill his promise to a dying soldier. Great opening and one that grabbed me right off the bat. Damon's initial treatment of Tanner haunted me enough to get through the first few chapters...more

Read my review at Bitten By Paranormal Romance
I didn’t want to like these guys, not even a little. They were so tormented. They kept denying themselves love. I just wanted to take Damon and LC by the shoulders, shake them, and yell, “Snap. Out. Of. It.” In the end, I couldn’t help myself, I fell and hard.
When Damon Price was 18, he suffered a terrible tragedy and never fully recovered. Letting someone get close, love him was impossible until Jesse -- almost. Tanner James feels responsible for Je...more
Determined to honor Jesse, a fallen comrade, in his last wish before he died hours prior to rescue, Tanner seeks out his grieving lover according to Jesse’s instructions. His plan was to get in, get the job done, and get out with his honor satisfied, but he could’ve never prepared for what he got into when Damon bitterly accepted him. With emotional ups and downs, lefts and rights, and just plain on the ground wondering what happened, Bound by Honor is a steamy book that will leave you breathles...more
This is a powerful book. It's incredibly sexy. It's incredibly emotional. It features two incredible alpha heroes that you can't help but to fall in love with. From page one this book propels you into this erotic BDSM story and it doesn't stop until the very end.
Tanner is bi-sexual, but something about his sex life is lacking. He's not finding fulfillment and as his military life becomes more and more dangerous, so do his sexual experiments....just trying to find that ultimate release....more
