Welcome to my rantview

If you’re looking for a book with lots of hot 3 way lovin’, but don’t need a really believable or compelling storyline, this might be the book for you.

I’m just going to get this off my chest, right up front - there’s this bothersome thing about Shayla Black’s heroes. They all seem to have some kind of horrible secret which in my opinion aren’t really all that horrible. At least, not to the degree that these men, these rough, take no prisoners, alpha male type men, are affec

I read both Decadent and Wicked Ties IN ONE NIGHT! I loved them both. I liked this book just as much as the first. I know not everyone feels that way, but I do.

I loved Deke. I have heard that his brooding behavior drove people nuts... but not me ;) This book has so much angst and drama that it sucked me in right from the start and didnt let go. I liked Luc, and I know that most of the people that have read this book preferred him to Deke, however knowing that he gets his own book before I start
I am so glad to finally be done with this book. There was nothing likable about Kimber or Deke throughout most of the book. The only person in the story that was half was decent was Luc. What a sweetie!

I realize that you have to suspend a certain amount of reality when you read romance/erotica, but this was insane. Are we really supposed to believe that Kimber would go to a man that she was convinced didn’t like her, so that he could teach her all about ménage, so that she can live happily ever

"Fucking her ass. Saving her life."

Do I really need to say anything more about this book? It's like the worst porn you've ever seen, but with even less plot. And more buttsex.

4.5 STARS!

What the hell happened? Deke was such a sweetheart in Wicked Ties! But I get why he keeps pushing Kimber away.

Deke Trenton has a serious case of blueballs. The poor guy desperately wants Kimber, but he’s just too closed up for the kind of relationship that Kimber is looking for.

Now although I was a little sad to see Deke act like such an asshole, there was another jack off I hated even more than him and that was Jesse, the pansy-ass rockstar who assumes that all women love him. The ass

Although I liked the first book in the WICKED LOVERS series, WICKED TIES, this second book in the series, DECADENT really kicked my lust and desire for more into overdrive!

Two cousins, Deke and Luc share everything from their home to their women and are hoping to find a woman who will want to settle down, have a family and live as their wife. The two big questions are: How are they going to find a woman who would be open to this far from traditional type of relationship? And once they find her,
This book is erotica, so stop reading if that's not your thing.

This is a m-f-m menage book, and it's very hot. I have no complaints about the sex scenes - some very wow impressive. The book is well written, and I couldn't put it down. Certain aspects did get on my nerves, however. For example, why are the men in menage books so often related to one another (brothers or cousins)? Is it to avoid any hint of homoeroticism? And why is the lead hero so often an emotional baby - whining about his tort

Kimber, daughter of a Colonel, looks up a man, Deke, who used to work for her father, whom she hasn't seen since she was 17, and asks him to teach her about "sex his way": menage. He shares women with his second cousin, the sexy chef Luc, and is hung up over the fate of the last woman he had sex with alone, Heather, back when he was a teenager. Kimber wants to learn about menage because of Jesse McCall, a sexy pin-up boy and pop star who she's known for five years, who she's been saving her virg ...more
I liked Wicked Ties. I thought the characters were interesting, the plot was interesting, and I could make myself go along with how the story unfolded. I even thought Deke was a good character in that book. Decadent, on the other hand, has horrible writing, the plot is ridiculous, and the entire book is borderline comical. Deke is getting on my last freggin nerve, and his "deep dark secret" is just plain asinine. On top of the stupid secret that has tormented his life, his reaction and thinking- ...more
4.5. Another very good book. Hot, hot, hot.

I did not like this one as much as her first book "Wicked Ties" and I can't really pinpoint why. Maybe because Deke is just a little over the top screwed up. Like he denied things till the last 50 pages of the book really. We all have bad things happen in our lives, he just couldn't seem to move on from them.

Deke and his cousin Luc pretty much come as a pair. So when Kimber asks Deke to teach her about his life style, Luc is the third. Luc seems pretty
5 stars - Romantic Suspense/Erotica/Ménage

I had very high hopes and expectations for Shayla Black’s Decadent after reading her boldly erotic delight Wicked Ties and Decadent did not disappoint. Although not quite as perfect as Wicked Ties, Decadent is an emotionally charged, scorching H-O-T read about a complex ménage relationship. Author Shayla Black writes amazing dialogue and deliciously erotic scenes that will make your toes curl. This is one of my top favorite erotica novels! It's a wickedl

Shayla Black, you write good sex!

If you are looking for a great storyline, step away from this book.

If you are looking for a nice, steamy read, this book should do the trick.

Very few authors can get away with 90/10 sex to story ratio and still have me finish the book. Shayla Black is one of those authors.

This is the second in the Wicked Lovers series. It is not as good as the first one.

Hero: Deke (introduced in Book 1, Wicked Ties)
Heroine: Kimber Edgington

Plot is a bit fantastical. I realize suspension of disbelief is necessary for a lot of fiction, but this was too much. A virgin decides to "learn how to ménage" so she can be with her boyfriend (because she has found out that he indulges in ménage relationships of
oh snap, it's teh pr0ns . . .

this pretty much sums it up:


Seriously, this has to be one of the worst books ever written. The characters were almost unbearable. They were stupid, one dimensional, and even their names were stupid. Kimber? Deke? Come on.
Sure, they had sex like ALL THE TIME, except when Kimber went off to see her rockstar friend she for some reason felt was the love of her life. Oh, and no, it turned out he wasn't, the love of her life wa

With Decadent , Shayla Black once again demonstrates how erotica can also be good literature. Unlike so many writers in this sub-genre who focus only on great sex, Black insists on little things like plot development, characters with personalities, character motivation and, you know, stuff like that.

I've read this book twice now. After the first read, I wasn't as keen on it as I was on the related story, Wicked Ties. But everyone I knew was raving about it so I thought that maybe I'd missed som
What I liked about this book:
The chemistry between Kimber and Deke and their eventual love. How Deke always loved her but knew it was better not to be involved with her in the past. He is a flawed hero, which made him human but he saw the error of his ways. There is menage in this book, though... just a warning. Luc, Deke's cousin is introduced which I liked as well. Totally different, with a different set of flaws/problems, he was also very human. The next book, Delicious is about him. There wa
That wasn't bad, but it wasn't good enough as well.

I have to admit the sex was hot but I the big secret and Deke's major hang up wasn't exactly major to me. I didn't like how he treated Kimber, even when he made it up to her in the end. He's too hung up, has a lot of emotional baggage and he's an ass, didn't really appreciate him.

Kimber was really emotional, but it's understandable having to deal with that kind of f*d up situation, and I hated Jesse he's such a...I don't have the one word to des
RATING: 2.5 stars.

A minha estreia "oficial" no género dos livros eróticos (excluo o Nove Semanas e meia porque acho o foco da história não é apenas o erotismo), podia ter sido melhor. Na verdade, apesar de ter revirado os olhos bastantes vezes ao longo desta leitura, por a achar inerentemente irrealista nalguns aspetos, não posso dizer que foi uma leitura propriamente penosa.

A protagonista desta história, Kimber, tem 23 anos e está a "guardar-se" para o amor da sua vida, a superestrela musical J

Two men are better than one

Kimber is a virgin and has zero sexual experience. Her long time “close” friend / crush Jesse is touring and coming back into town soon. Kimber wants to pursue a sexual relationship with Jesse, but the problem, Jesse is into threesomes. Kimber doesn’t want to be inexperienced anymore and enlist the help of Deke and Luc to teach her everything she needs to do about threesome.

Decadent and Shayla Black books are hot!

I was highly disappointed with Decadent and it was a major letdown after enjoying Wicked Ties. In my opinion, the way this book was written did not even have the feel of the same author. The fact that she totally changed the character and dynamic of Deke from the first book was not even the worst part for me. (But it didn't help!) It was the poor dialogue and how the overall story was written. If I attempt to read Luc's story after this, it will not be anytime soon.

I feel like Simon Cowell for writing this but this might be the worst book ever. Why doesn't GR allow 0 stars? This story is erotica so some of the priceless dialogue can't be quoted. Please visit the Smart Bitches website for a more NSFW (and hilarious) review

2nd in the series. . loved it! Not as good as Wicked Ties but still fantastic. Loved Kimber, although I did have a 'Jem and the Holograms' flashback the first few times I msaw the name. but it was great and I cant wait to continue in this series.

Kimber Edgington is 23, a virgin (no, really!!) and has been in love with her childhood friend, Jesse, who is now a famous rock-star, who she has been saving her virginity for!!!! But Jesse is not interested in virgins, so she decides to ask Deke Trenton, who has had the hots for her for years, and his cousin Luc, to give her some lessons without “breaking” her virginity!!! Now this had me thinking…how would this work????

Erotica is usually not known for its plot. And it's certainly not this book that will change the reputation.
Characters were promising, there were some interesting mysteries I was looking for the unravelment, obviously the hot scenes were scorching. But I first started to get irritated by reading 20 times about the fact there was a drama in Deke's life which had led him to where he was today, but now was never the right moment to start opening up about it. Obviously this contributes, not only to

WARNING: Mature review for a mature book.

Oh my. What have I gotten myself into?

I polished off this book in no time; not because it’s darn right addictive, or I couldn’t put it down. It’s because I skipped a whole slew of pages. Which parts did I skip, you ask? The sex scenes. Say, what?! For real, yo.

The gist: Kimber wanted to learn about the three-way play that Jesse McCall is into. Jesse McCall is a childhood friend turned pop star sensation that Kimber has been in love with since forever. Sh

Kimber turns to bodyguard Deke Trenton for sex ed. she knows all about his ménage à trois and she knows that Jesse also likes them.

So, this is more 3 1/2 to 4 stars. I didn't like this one as much as Wicked Ties, but it was enjoyable. I guess I found the original premise kind of silly, and Deke was quite the idiot sometimes. Kimber is a 23 year old virgin who thinks she's in love with her old flame, Jesse, now a rock star who's into threesomes (no joke!). She wants to fit into his life desperately. She remembers her father's employee, Deke, an ex Army Ranger with a penchant for the same lifestyle (rumors abound around town) ...more
Decadent was Shayla Black’s #2 book in her Wicked Lovers series. After finishing Wicked Ties I was more than eager to start on book 2.

I read Ms. Black's first book in this seris, Wicked Ties (review here), and I liked it, but it had some issues that were hard for me to get past. I wanted to try another book before gave this series a thumbs-up or not. Well, I'm giving it the thumb's up....I like it and am looking forward to the next book.
