UniquelyMoi ~ The 1-click Diva
When I started this book I figured it would be just another sexy read by Shayla Black. WOW! Was I ever wrong! Not about the “sexy read” part, but about the “just another” part of the “sexy read” comment.

Jack Cole is a bodyguard, an alpha male and self proclaimed Dominant. He’s given the opportunity to appear on a cable sex talk show and discuss his sexual proclivities with Morgan O’Malley, the skeptical host of the show. She’s not buying into the whole Dom/sub thing, and Jack's hints that she m

I had heard so much hype about this book that I was a little disappointed with it. I enjoyed it, but I wasn't wowed. I think Jack's ultra dominance was a little much for me and I felt a little sorry for Morgan--I kept putting myself in her shoes and wanted to strangle Jack. That would have been my sexual fantasy ;-) I wish he had been a little more sensitive than hulking and scowling--but I guess that is pretty much the norm for these brooding dominant male we tend to love so much...

5+ stars - Romantic Suspense/Erotica/BDSM/Ménage

YOWZA! It's difficult to adequately review this book because author Shayla Black successfully weaves so many elements into the story. Anyone who appreciates well written erotica, especially with aspects of BDSM (D/s) or Menage should read this book. Wicked Ties is highly rated and recommended by/for erotica fans for good reason. This book is scorching HOT! It's definitely one of my very favorite erotica novels. I loved it! Be sure to have a glass o

Ooooooooh boy. This made me get more books by Shayla Black from the library because that woman can write one steamy sex scene. Not to mention a whole book full. Not to mention her hero is hot and sexy as all get out. This is one steamy book that deserves a rereading on a cold winter's night. The underlying mystery of stalking throws an interesting plot attention grabber.

Also, it introduces Deke, who is in her next book Decadent. I liked knowing a little bit about him in this book first before I

Wicked Ties has more heat than the fire from an erupting volcano. This erotic tale of Jack Cole, ex-Special Forces soldier and experienced dom, and Morgan O’Malley, TV show host who denies her submissive nature, brings new meaning to the word SEXY. As Jack encourages Morgan to embrace her fantasies, he pushes her to submit in ways that will probably make you want Jack to say “Good girl” to you too. With dominant/submissive dynamics, bondage and a ménage, be ready for some explicit (heart stoppin ...more

Wow... This was like a bad Z-movie, a bad porn, Z-movie(and I am claiming artistic license for any repetitions or pleonasm :D)! The hero is a bully who doesn't know what he wants and the heroine kept along with him... He's an a-hole to her, fu*ks up the D/s concept and send her supposed fiancé((view spoiler)) a sex video with them. After that he thinks she won't understand why he wants

I am having trouble finding the words to express how much I hated this book. I knew that this was basically supposed to be a sexy book and not great literature, but even by those standards, it failed. How could a book with this much sex manage to be so boring?

Morgan: I have never wanted to get out of a character's head this badly before. The constant, repetitive inner monologues about whether her relationship with Jack was a good idea or not and whether it made her a whore or whatever were *kil

DAYUM!! Wicked Ties is probably one of the better BDSM books that I’ve read. No butt plugs in sight! It was scorching HOT, but still had a lot of heart in it too.

I don’t usually care for heroines in a lot of erotica romance novels, but I found that I really liked Morgan. She’s intelligent and industrious, but still vulnerable in her sexuality. I liked her reluctance to fold in Jack’s presence. It definitely made her submission in the end worth it. I was also terrified for the woman. Having a si

I'm not sure about this one...

It had all the characteristics of a classic romance novel with the added twist of the D/s relationship between the main characters and a dose of crime/thriller just to make things a little more interesting.

The sex scenes were scorching hot and I enjoyed them profusely, the BDSM elements believable and well rendered.

But I found myself wanting to skim through both characters' page-long internal dialogue and tormented thoughts, Morgan's constant "he-loves-me/he-loves-

Warning: This book contains a whole lot of graphic sex, including but not limited to BDSM, menage and anal play. It is absolutely not for the faint of heart.

The most awful saddest part about this book is that every review I've read says the others in the series are nowhere near as good. It's such a shame because it definitely leaves you with the urge to run out and buy more books by Shayla Black, but I'm not going to force myself through the series and ruin where I've currently left off with th

This book is definitely in my top 5 favorite erotica novels. I LOVED it!

Im not going to review this book. I don't think I can do it justice ;D

Wow...Jack Cole is soooo HAWT!!

"The memory of you in my arms...it's been keeping me hard all night. Watching you sleep was torture. I kept thinking about lying next to you on the bed, peeling your clothes away and devouring everything underneath. I want to get my hands on you, cher. My mouth on you. Get inside you, drive deep and sure. I want you to scream my name when you come." *SWOON*

This story was ok... I found the characters 'reflecting' too much, reiterating what they were thinking ALL THE TIME ..to the point where the story was getting boring for me. It took me a lot longer to finish this story than it normally would have, had the story had a better pace I would have gotten into it more. I loved Morgan and Jack together, and the whole idea of the stalker..but the writing was kinda lame for me. I so wanted to like this book!

Wicked Ties is only intended for readers who like the sizzle and spice,sexual tension that rates off the richter scale. Why do I say this? Well I can not deny that this book contains light BDSM and a Ménage à trois scene that is wantonly wicked! Although there is more to the novel,I just had to throw in that small thought and give readers the heads up!

I tried hard to like this book, since I went out and bought the entire series as well as two others of a similar style - all at once to the tune of $200 - I've had to read it over time, and pick up other books in between because of the relentless repetitiveness of what's happening in this one. Potentially intriguing characters get lost amid scenes of very non-erotic sexual activity. All in all, if you like a lot of sex with little emotional investment, you'll love this book - I can't say series, ...more

Ok... this book was a first for me. I have read some very erotic books before, but this one was in a whole different league! I was, up until reading this book, an Erotica virgin, but Wicked Ties has officially deflowered me. I feel like I have been rode hard and put up wet... 4 wicked stars!!

The story in this book is actually pretty good! Of course it is filled with all sorts of wicked knock your socks off sex, but it also contains a suspenseful plot... think Romantic Suspense on Ecstasy!! A sta

Only one thing could stop me from liking Jack Cole and that is his petty attempt to get back at Brandon Ross, a good guy, as it turns out, (who is Jack almost stupidly seeks vengeance from) but hell...that is the main plot of the book, and though already a flimsy premise, it is weakened by a subplot of a stalker being after the heroine/damsel in distress, Morgan, and another subplot that just screams that this story is doing way too much.

Guessing the stalker was somewhat easy when narr

THIS IS NOT A GENRE FOR ME, lol. I really did try to like it as so many other paranormal romance fans seem to enjoy it, but I just can't get to appreciate them. I do like the hot scenes, but if there's just NOTHING more to read about I get bored and everything just turns more and more of the same.

This was by far the worst read I've found so far. I just couldn't find one little thing I liked. There was NO plot at all, just sex scene after sex scene and there was even nothing I could find "interes

Every so often I need to scratch my itch and read a good erotic book. This was definitely for my itch. I like erotica but I don't read them that much and I've now figured out why....It's because there is barely a storyline. I get that erotic novels are mostly about sex, but is it that hard to have a storyline to go along with it?? This plot was too weak for me. It could have worked but I felt like it was lacking because of the heroines need to be dominated. It just took over the whole book. But, ...more

Pre-review***I am about 100 pages into the book. I am loving how Shayla Black writes. She definately, imho, knows how to create the delicious wicked thoughts of someone with dark fantasies they want to come to life and a man more than willing to make them submit. My only hang-up is believablity. The plot is second to great character development/chemistry BUT its annoying to have it keep popping up to ruin such an otherwise perfect romantica. The interaction between Jack and Morgan is all you'll ...more

Have you met Jack Cole yet? Heard about him at least? Well if you haven't you don't have any idea what you're missing out on. In fact, you should go buy this book right now because you HAVE to meet Jack! I may have a little crush on him.

Wicked Ties is the beginning of one of my favorite erotic series that has the perfect blend of romance, eroticism, amazing characters and suspense as well. Ms. Black will transport you to the swamps of Louisiana with the

Quick review: I enjoyed this book, I did. Somehow I put the thing down with 20% left and didn't pick it up for a month and a half, but really, I liked it. Jack, the male protag, is sizzling. He more than made up for some of the (at times) excessive waffling by leading lady Morgan. The love scenes were smoking, but I must admit, I wish the included stalker plot was a bit more fleshed out...especially in the last half. I really enjoyed the third act/climax, though by the t

HO-LEE-CRAP. This book was smoking hot. Dare I say - the hottest book I have ever read. But I will say this - the story is driven totally on the sexual aspect. Yes - there is a story there.....but it does take a back seat to the crazy, smoking hot sex scenes.

And a warning - this isn't your plain old vanilla sex. This is BDSM, threesomes, anal sex.....that kind of thing. So, if that isn't your cup of tea - I suggest you don't read this book. That being said - while those sorts of thing aren't par

Found this book boring, mainly because it was very repetitive, and in several instances unbelievable. Repetitive - every second page seemed to have either Morgan or Jack waxing lyrical about the same thing. In Morgan's case she was constantly agonising about whether her desire for "dark" sex with Jack meant she was abnormal or dirty - but she then went ahead had some more hot sex with Jack and then went through the same thought process. Jack also had inner struggles about his desire for revenge ...more

DNF @about 20% for kink attempts, TSTL heroine and a lame ass hero.

They meet over lunch for an interview: the warning bells started when he asked she calls him Sir. Insta Siring over 5 minutes conversation is a fantasy IMO. Take that to the real world and its a definite: "No, thank you. I'm here for the food and a job." but this girl doesn't really know what he is really saying.
Later, in the dressing room, he tells her to get comfortable to his touch because she needs to look natural in public
