Kasey has an unusual kink that he keeps hidden, but when Brandon drives into the garage Kasey works in a 1970 Chevelle SS 454 Kasey is quickly smitten, with the driver and the car. Brandon picks up on Kasey’s kink and finds himself intrigued with the cute sexy mechanic, but trying to get the shy man to believe he is interested is hard. Kasey begins to worry over his kink and whether he will ever be able to hold Brandon’s attention; can he put aside his fear and embrace what Brandon offers?
Ah there’s nothing like a cute mechanic who has a bit of a kink for classic cars and a sexy lawyer who just happens to have a classic car collection, oh you can just imagine the steamy times ahead! Kasey is really wary of putting himself out there, in his experience it usually leads to him being embarrassed; Kasey has no confidence so when Brandon shows an interest in him he thinks it will be a quick fling. Brandon seems to have a bit of a fetish of his own, he is attracted to men with fetishes and Kasey’s fetish is one that suits Brandon perfectly. Kasey finds himself amazed that he can open up so much to Brandon but the doubt lingers and Brandon puts Kasey’s fears to rest.
This is a great sexy little number that is amazingly hot and has two great characters. We get to know Kasey really well, the character development for him was wonderful and we watched as he began to gain confidence not just with Brandon but also his workmates as well. Brandon we don’t get to know quite as well, but well enough to know he is a perfect match for Kasey. Together they are hot and their relationship moves along smoothly, and for me the best thing was that they are still in the early stages and haven’t declared their love after such a short amount of time, it’s a beginning of a relationship that could develop into something much more solid and wonderful.
I recommend this to those who love hot men finding common ground, sparks flying, erotic hot sex, great character development and two men at the beginning of a hot sexy relationship....more
Anarchy has been the leader of hell for 100 years, when he meets new arrival Josh he finds it hard to believe that Josh could be a cold blooded killer. Determined to get the truth, he sends Josh to his own residence with plans to sexually torture the truth out of him.... and to also discover why Josh makes him feel the way he does.
Gulp, this is a hot short that has kink and sexual pleasure galore. Anarchy is puzzled about why Josh is in hell, but Josh won't give him the full story. When Anarchy discovers the truth he has a choice of his own to make, ask heaven to take Josh and lose his mate or keep Josh in hell where he will be miserable.
Ah damn, I really don't know how James Cox can gives us a sexually pleasing story that also has a great storyline in only 22pgs. This is a really hot short where the truth comes out, forgiveness is given, Anarchy finds a mate, hot kinky sex is enjoyed and we also get a happily ever after (after a bit of despair). This is a great story that whets the appetite and satisfies it at the same time, it fulfills a quick paranormal fix while giving us a kink fix as well.
I recommend this to those who love kinky paranormals, hot kinky sex, a sweetish love story and a great ending. ...more
Hunter is scared to death when he receives a letter telling him he has been chosen in the alien lottery, nobody ever knows what happens to the young men who are picked and they are never heard of again. Kian has a terminal illness and his father has bought a human in an effort to cure him, Kian doesn’t believe that anything will ever give him relief from the tormenting pain but finds that with the human, Hunter, it is much more manageable with their sexual encounters. But, Kian’s father expects a full recovery and if he doesn’t get one Hunter will be sold.
This is a great new series that has an alien race coming to the rescue of humans and getting young men as payment. Everyone male knows what a plain white envelope with their name, address and social security number on means, it means you have been chosen in the lottery by the Eoeans and that your life as you know it has ended. Hunter receives his and wonders what he is about to face, but the reality of a metal encased alien never crossed his mind. Kian has suffered for years and Hunter gives him some semblance of peace, their connection as they fall in love is getting stronger and the mythical soul bond just might be true.
This is a very original new science fiction series where the human race was rescued from a deadly disease by an alien race who want human men as payment. Hunter is a very feisty submissive who goes from fear to arousal when he first meets his owner, Kian, he finds himself attracted to the stronger alien and wants nothing more than to submit to him, but he doesn’t understand what Kian really expects from him when Kian says he has failed. Kian has been promised a human will be able to cure him and is deeply disappointed when it doesn’t happen, he is even more surprised when he learns the human, Hunter, has no clue that he was promised as a cure. It doesn’t stop the two males from getting into a D/s relationship and falling in love and when the two are ripped apart it is discovered that the soul-bond myth is the truth.
The relationship between these two males’ progresses quickly after they both put their cards on the table, they develop a beautiful D/s relationship which is juicily kinky. Hunter and Kian fall in love but they both hold back a bit until they are nearly lost to each other. This is a great light hearted story that has a great storyline and some hot kinky sex, the characters are great with each one suiting his role perfectly and they have hot kinky sex. We get a great background story on both Hunter and Kian… oh did I mention they have hot kinky sex?
I recommend this to those that love kinky science fiction, hot kinky sex, a great storyline and a very happy ending after just a touch of angst. ...more
Damian (Trevor) is the singer for grunge band Firefly, being treated unfairly by their agent has Damian striking a deal with Stanley, the best agent in the business. But, getting out of his current contract is harder than Damian hoped and after paying the way out of his bandmates contracts he has to accept the offer of Stan’s friend Vance, a country and western superstar, to help him buy out his own contract. Tensions are high in the band though and Damian’s volatile relationship with Lenny, Firefly’s lead guitarist, is heading for destruction. As pressure mounts Damian turns to drink, drugs and anonymous sex and Stan takes the reins of control for Damian, and Vance steps in to take control of Lenny.
When a sub needs to give up control they need a strong hand to guide them, but what happens when the person you want to take control is also a sub? Damian and Lenny love each other, but they can never have what they truly want because neither is strong enough to take control. It affects them both in different ways and it takes interference from outside the band in the shape of agent Stan and his friend Vance for the destruction to break its cycle. Stan and Vance have had been on and off lovers for years, but Stan can’t be a sub for Vance, he has too much Dom in him for that. Vance has his eyes on Lenny and whisks him away when Lenny’s relationship with Damian goes too far, Stan takes Damian in hand and begins to give Damian some of what he needs.
Although Damian/Trevor, Lenny, Stan and Vance are the main couples in this story, the storyline focuses on Damian and Stan and in a smaller part Vance and Lenny. Stan is just what Damian needs, he isn’t a whips and flogger type of Dom, but he is more a control, structure and rules type of person, he also doesn’t take the relationship too far, giving Damian room to heal before embarking into a sexual relationship. Although we see a bit of what is going on between Vance and Lenny we have no clue what is happening between them, I can only hope that Jaime Samms will give us their full story.
All the characters in this book are great, you have divided feelings as you read what is happening and the truth begins to unfold. There is hot scorching sex between Vance and Stan, a nice touch of D/s between Vance and Lenny and some spectacular loving between Stan and Damian. This storyline is really good and you become invested in Damian as he finds himself without the booze, drugs and sex, you want Stan to succeed as the strong guiding hand although Stan himself has his own doubts. The things going on with Lenny are harder to see, mainly because he has become so good at hiding and making himself the victim, I began to resent him for dumping everything on Damian’s shoulders and leaving him to pick up the pieces.
I recommend this story to those who love damaged young men, finding what you long for, a touch of D/s, a controlling Dom, a mess up sub, some really hot sex and a happy ending for Damian and Stan. ...more
Reno is still confused over his sexuality, his long-time girlfriend does nothing for him, but the minute Tanner walks into his life he has had to fight his longing for the man. When Tanner tempts him with carnal pleasure Reno gives in, not only to his attraction but to a taste of BDSM as well which Reno welcomes with open arms, but dealing with his family, press and the ghost of Tanner’s dead lover just might be more than he can handle. Tanner has finally found the man who can make him forget his dead lover, but Tanner has to gently ease Reno into his kind of loving. Tanner acts rashly on stage one night and has to help protect Reno from the backlash, but when Tanner receives a package from the past will Reno and Tanner be able to work things out?
This story is a great rock star, BDSM, kink story mixed with insecurity, trust, a touch of danger and two men accepting love and all that it comes with. Reno might have been a rock star for a number of years but he is still only twenty-one, he hasn’t had much experience sexually and women just don’t seem to do it for him, meeting Tanner will rock his world in more ways than one. Tanner makes no bones about his sexuality and his Dom persona, there’s nothing he loves more than having a man bound and flogged and begging for release and now he wants Reno. These two men are spectacular together, their chemistry leaps off the page, you can nearly see the sexual sparks flying between them and it is HOT!
Tanner is a very choosy man, he will accept most subs under his flogger but never into his bed, that he saves for the special subs who he could develop a relationship with and love. Losing his last lover two years ago has left its mark, but he wants a relationship with Reno. Reno has to overcome his inner turmoil and his fear of how his family will react, but that isn’t his only problem because he has to compete with the ghost of Tanner’s dead lover, which leads to Reno being placed in a dangerous situation.
I loved how H.C. Brown has woven this story, Reno and Tanner know each other for a while before the embark on a relationship, Tanner introduces Reno slowly into BDSM and kink and Tanner also holds off for several days before having full sex with Reno. The background setting of problems with Reno’s family and Tanner’s holding his dead lover on a pedestal added in with being in the spotlight is great and they all flow together smoothly, this story is a great combination of BDSM, rock stars and family and friends.
I will recommend this to those who love hot sex, BDSM, rock stars, family drama, fighting for love and a very happy ending. ...more
Matthew has had many tragedies throughout his life, and each year his birthday brings danger but his guardian angel Gabriel is always there in the background keeping him safe. But, this year is different as the forces of evil are determined to put an end to the Gifted One and Gabriel crosses a line never meant to be crossed. Matt and Gabriel jeopardise God’s Grand Design by falling in love, defying God’s laws and now a sacrifice must be made before it is too late.
This is a great good vs evil, heavenly powers story. Matthew is the Gifted One and since the night of his birth has been hunted by evil and Gabriel is the Archangel charged with keeping him safe, but Gabriel has grown to love the mortal under his protection and he breaks the rules when he shows himself to Matt. Matt is confused about his instant connection to the mysterious Gabriel, but he tries to put it to the side to make a go of it with Craig, a man who has great potential in the boyfriend stakes. Evil still haunts Matt and monsters from his past are poised to strike and the contact with Gabriel pushes their feelings to the surface, but acting on their love could prove too dangerous with the powers of heaven disapproving.
I enjoyed most of this book, but I have to admit to disliking parts of it, especially when it came to Matt’s inability to basically stand up for himself against his friends and how understanding he had to be all the time, it wasn’t natural. The storyline was great and Gabriel and Matt were an interesting couple, I liked the way that the past was told in full for the pivotal moments and the way that evil twisted humans to do its bidding. The way the story flows is brilliant and it has emotional twists and turns, with some heavenly aspects and stories lending to the story. There’s lots of danger with rescues, some angst, arguing, forgiveness and love, there are some horrifying moments but also some moments of great sacrifice and devotion.
I will recommend this to those who love Angels and evil, some hot sex, Archangels giving it all up for love, danger, and a great ending. ...more
Corrin is a prince of the Seelie Court, he has spent the last five years in the human world and now it is time for him to return home. But before he settles down into the life planned for him, he has one week to enjoy himself with his two human best friends, and what better way to begin than a night in Purgatory, a fetish nightclub forbidden to the Seelie. Adrian is a prince of the UnSeelie Court drawn inexplicably to a sexy man with white-blond hair; taking the young Seelie on a journey of discovery in the forbidden, he knows he will take any risk to see him again. But Corrin has a choice, live a miserable life ignoring his needs or embracing the forbidden and facing banishment.
Well, well, well, Jana Downs what a naughty girl you are, you have written a story that has a wonderful blend of want, need, love and kink *bites lip* oh yeah kink *shudder*. Corrin has had forbidden dreams for years, dreams of submission, dreams of a man; it’s something that he knows he can never have because if he ever caved into the dark needs he would lose everything. Adrian embraces his sexuality with open arms and embraces the task of initiating Corrin in the ways of man on man sex and submission, but when Corrin disappears back to the Seelie Court he looks for any way to get the delicious submissive back.
This is a great story of accepting your wants and needs, finding love in unexpected places and a determined love. I have to admit that the world that Jana Downs has created for her Fae world is startling in its views, the Seelie Court is very strict and everything is proper, men join with women and their sex is strictly vanilla, if you fail to comply, then you are either beaten and exiled or entered into the ‘sexuality rehabilitation program’ (brainwashed), while the UnSeelie Court embraces those who are seen as perverted by the Seelie and encourages them to be who they want to be.
Adrian and Corrin’s relationship is wonderful and the sexual spark between them is explosive, the sex between them is intense, passionate and erotic with a delightful dash of BDSM and you know that the intensity of their feelings will endure. I really enjoyed this story and have to admit that it did produce conflicting feelings because although I loved Adrian, Corrin and one or two of the Seelie, the rest of them could get trapped in hell for their attitudes. Corrin pulls at your heart towards the end, his torment makes you want to cry.
I have to recommend this to those who love paranormal, Fae, a judgemental society, angst, kink and light BDSM, hot explosive sex and a love that will endure. ...more
Jack is a playboy who has a love ‘em and leave them attitude, when he crosses paths with Christian he ends up learning a few lessons about love. Christian just wants his cupid wings, when he is given the chance it seems like a simple task until he learns the truth, all he has to do is unit Jack with his soul-mate, a soul-mate trapped in the past. Ethan lives a hard life on his farm in the Australian Outback in 1860, a time when being gay could get you killed, when he comes across a strange man wandering on his land he takes him in even though he acts strange, and it isn’t long before Jack works his wiles.
This is a story with a very interesting concept, what is a wannabe cupid to do when his assignment seems impossible… time-travel of course. I must admit to being surprised by the characters in this book, Ethan is a doll who you take too straight away and you want him to find the love that is so forbidden. Jack is a more complex character, at first you hold him in contempt for the way he treats men, but then he turns into a near perfect sweetheart (he still annoys a bit) when he is with Ethan. Christian was a character that I really liked at first, but towards the end of the book I wanted to take the cupid wings and shove them down his throat, *flutters eyelashes* you will understand.
The storyline is good, Christian wants his cupid wings, but his ex-lover Donovan doesn’t want him to become a cupid, so gives him an impossible task of matching Jack with his true match. Because of a mistake in the past Ethan’s soul is trapped searching for his soul-mate never able to move forward, Jack’s soul moved on and will be unable to connect with Ethan’s. Christian comes up with a way for them to meet, but Jack’s from the future; will he really be able to give up a life of comfort for a hard life in the 1860s Australian Outback? This is a unique story, I have never come across a time-traveling story for Australia before and I found it really interesting, especially have the rich playboy facing his behavior towards other people.
The one thing that will get your pulse racing is Jack’s prowess as a lover; he is imaginative, inventive and passionate, there are plenty of opportunities for him to show us as well. Although the romance is between Ethan and Jack, Ethan isn’t the only one that we see Jack having sex with and the sex is playful, kinky with just a touch of BDSM. The historical timing of this story isn’t perfect, I was thrown a bit by the language and terms of endearment they called each other, but Ethan’s reactions to being gay at that time was perfect.
I will recommend this to those who love Australian Outback love, hot kinky sex, finding true love and a happy ending. ...more
Adam is being harassed by frat boys when he does his laundry; lucky for him sexy cowboy, Denver, comes to his rescue and Adam ends up bent over the Laundromat table having the time of his life, after he thanks his saviour. Denver can’t get Adam out of his head, even seeing all the other hot geeky twinks at work doesn’t stop him wanting Adam, Adam seemed to want the same kind of play as Denver enjoys, but Denver has to wait for Adam to make the first move.
This is a wonderful story of working past your limitations and embracing your quirks. Adam suffers from OCD, he has a lot of quirks that go with it and he has to work hard to keep his panic attacks at bay. When Adam first meets Denver he tries to hide his problems, believing that if Denver found out about his mental health, then he would want nothing to do with him. Denver has his own problem which holds him back, he works as a bouncer because the job he really wants means going back to school and he just can’t deal with books, dating Adam makes him want to try though and both men have to face their problems.
Denver and Adam are a couple that you wouldn’t think would work, but both their personalities are perfectly synced, they draw out the best in each other and are very encouraging when it comes to their individual problems. The one thing you could never doubt is how hot they are together, and we get the pleasure of seeing how hot they are together with their kinks, and although there are elements of BDSM, we really only see the kink side, with Adam reminiscing about the more mainstream BDSM.
I will admit that when I first started the book and for the first couple of chapters I thought it was going to be the typical BDSM Dom/sub story, but we get so much more than that, we get their everyday fears and the mental health problems they face, but we also see how their kinks work with the OCD. Adam and his OCD are written incredible well, with his fears being dealt with instead of being glossed over. Denver’s learning disability was covered and handled quite well, and his reaction to the knowledge was perfectly described. Both these characters’ worm their way into your affections because they are both so incredibly sweet with each other, they try to protect each other in their own way and they both dread the other finding out the truth about them.
I will recommend this to those who love geeks and cowboys, dealing with mental health problems head on, some hot kink and BDSM elements, gaining control of your life and finding your own flawed true love. ...more
Steele is part owner of the club Punch Back and is fed up to the back-teeth with it but he has no way out. Dane is asked to put his life on the line by going undercover at the club; he accepts it gladly willing to do anything to get revenge on the family that destroyed his life. When these two meet they find they have to rely on each other to stay alive.
Wow this is a brutal, gritty, get your teeth into story that doesn’t leave you hanging but leaves you wanting more. Steele wants out of the business, it’s not to his tastes anymore, he’s had enough of the blood, beatings and rough sex but there’s something that is holding him back from making the break, you do understand his helplessness at his situation and when you discover the full story you can’t help feeling sorry for him. Dane goes in as a fighter, he has an inner rage that helps him win and it won’t burn out without justice, you find out part of Dane’s story early on when you find out the full story it will break your heart. There’s an instant connection between these men and although they don’t really trust each other, they burn up the air around them. Even when they work together they still keep secrets from the other, but as they connect the dots the killer makes his final moves.
This is a strong plot and story-line and kinda fills you with dread as we look at a future no one wants (the worse thing is this future is easy to imagine), some the sex scenes are primal and brutal, while some are passionate and hot, there are great characters and a twist you don’t see coming.
So I highly recommend this to those who like brutal, dramatic, intense stories, hot men, hot sex and the beginnings of a great relationship. ...more
Robin has been banished to a monastery after being caught with his hose around his ankles. His father was ever in despair, as he was never manly enough, but pushing his marriage early his father hopes it will make a man of him. Ben is a manly knight who Robin tends to when he is injured. When the time comes for them to leave, Ben to his home and Robin to get married, Ben takes things into his own hands to try to stop the marriage.
This is a very good medieval historical type story which is well written with very good characters and a great story-line and plot. Robin seems to have a very submissive personality that has been abused and trod upon by others, Ben expects men to behave in a certain way and Robin will act that way because Ben will train him. Robin is a lovely man and it was nice to see him develop into a more confident man. Ben, on the other hand, I wasn’t sure of because, at first, he seemed really nice then he changed and it made me not keen on him. But he came through in the end and turned out to be a proper knight in shining armor.
Now the sex is hot, in a primal medieval way and we do see quite a bit of kink because of Robin’s conditioning when he was younger. Robin also keeps secrets because he is ashamed but they keep being exposed which causes problems with Ben. Ben also has his own problem because he thinks that some things are just for women, which doesn’t make Robin to happy. There’s also some action in the fighting department which is quite cool.
So I recommend this for those who love medieval knights, hot men, a great story, sword fights, hot sex and a great ending....more
Hmmm, this is one of those books that fly’s by as you read it but you feel, until the last few pages, like you missed something. Brad is being bullied, misused and taken advantage of up until the moment Scott steps in to claim him. Scott loves the concept of control, he likes the illusion that he is in complete control and with Brad he has found someone who is receptive to Scott being in charge.
I liked this book. It had a bit of kink. Basically, Brad really wanted it and Scott liked to give him. But, it was also about trust. Brad is trusting Scott to do the right thing for both of them and Scott controlling Brad and giving him what he needs rather than what he wants. For me, it was actually more an illusion of control that Scott needed as well because they both know that Brad could say no at any time and Scott would stop. The sex between them is intense and passionate and the scene at the end of the book had me catch my breath, as after a year, both men finally opened their hearts to each other.
With this one, I think I will have to recommend it to those who love hot sex, great action in the ring, an intense partnership, resisting temptation and a happy ending that was touching....more
Ashton was disowned when he told his parents he was gay. Now, he makes his living stripping. It’s a job that pays the bills, but one night he turns around and his client is none other than J.C., the boy he once fell in love with. J.C. is celebrating his birthday with a lap dance bought for him by his best friend, but when the dancer turns around he’s startled to see Jeremy (Ashton). Jeremy who he remembers from school, but what was he doing stripping? J.C. needs to see him again and hopes he can give him an offer he can’t refuse.
This is a lovely short story of seeing past the trappings surrounding a man and to the person they really are. Ashton lost everything when he came out to his parents, only his best friend Bo stood by him and helped him navigate the real world and now J.C. has walked into his life. But, Ashton is wary of trusting him, after all the only person he knows he can trust is Bo. So does he take a chance with his heart? J.C. has been bitten in the past and he is wary of jumping in with a man again, but when he sees Jeremy (Ashton) again after all these years he throws caution to the wind and takes a chance that Ashton wants him and not his money.
Both Ashton and J.C. are wary men, but as they come together both of them seem to realize that they have found just what they need in the other man. You can understand Ashton’s cautiousness, because of how he lost not just his parents, but all his friends when he came out. only one person standing beside him and being there for him, so when J.C. comes to him it makes him wonder what J,C, really wants. J.C. is willing to take the chance that Ashton wants him, the man, and not the businessman, he knows it’s a risk, but he wants Ashton and wants to show Ashton that they would be good together.
The dynamics of the relationship is fluid, although Ashton likes to be spanked by J.C., he also takes control as well. The sex between them is very hot and at times feels desperate, as though they must have it now. Although the relationship felt a bit rushed, it seemed to suit both their personalities and worked well for them. Although they make an interracial couple, there is no real focus on that; they are just two men who want each other.
So, if you want a story of seeing beyond the surface, new beginnings, hot passionate sex and trusting your instincts, of realizing that the timing is perfect for you and no lost regrets, then this is the book for you....more
Eroc is an Incubus who has been given the task of getting Dante to enter into a contract for his soul. Unfortunately, Eroc isn’t quite as impervious to the humans’ charms as he thought. Dante inadvertently enters the contract, but he decides to make the best of it as there is no way out.
This is quite a fast-moving novella with a good twist and a very happy ending. Eroc has to get Dante to enter a contract for his soul, but he also has to ensure he does it right after his last mistake. Dante is in a band who wants to hit it big, when he comes across someone in his dressing room he mistakes them for a groupie, to his instant regret. Now Eroc and Dante come to a truce, but Eroc has to go to further lengths to ensure his feelings don’t engage and Dante wants nothing more than for Eroc to let his emotions go.
I really enjoyed this cute novella of an Incubus who needs to gather souls for their King. But, his emotions start to become involved and he has to try to stop them from becoming further entangled. We also has a human who inadvertently agrees to that contract, because he isn’t thinking with his big head *wink wink*. But, what we also have is two men coming together and making beautiful music together (what! They do, it’s a good song), as well as some spectacular sex.
The progression of the story is really quick, over the course of just a couple of days. But, there is a reason as to why it happens so quickly (I’m just not gonna tell you *g*). You get a good feeling for both Dante and Eroc, as we share head space with both of them, and they do make a great couple. They are really hot together in the sack, and we see a little power play (kink, D/s) but it isn’t too heavy and it works really well for them. We also have a little twist at the end when we meet the Incubus King (who sounds interesting).
So if you love Incubi, musicians, slightly D/s sex, hot sex, loopholes, invalidating contracts and happy ever afters, then this is the book for you....more
Okay, so I have never heard of this author before and I have looked to see if they have published anything else, but I couldn’t find anything… which really surprised me, as the quality of writing was brilliant
Maithe is a Halfling, part demon/part human, he has been trained for years to serve humans, but he has no intention of giving up his freedom… until he meets Astle. Astle has set his sights on having Maithe as his and Maithe doesn’t put up too much of a fight, until someone comes after Astle and then all bets are off.
This is an incredibly detailed, slightly enthralling novella that is rich in world building and is a joy to read. Maithe is malicious, holds humans in contempt and sneers at those who want to become bound to a human, and he has no intention of becoming bound and dreams of freedom. Astle is a prince of Rausol and wants Maithe. He sets out to master him, but the choice is forced when Astle is attacked and Maithe must come to his rescue, which leads to events that just might break them all.
This book was great, right from the start. We are introduced to the life on Terra in vivid detail as a guard is riding through the streets, she comes upon a beggar telling a story and she stays to listen, and this is where we are told the story of Terra, Gods, humans and demons, and how the Halflings came to be. This story was woven brilliantly; it is full of detail throughout, so you can picture in your mind the actions as the story unfolds. The characters are wonderful and are fleshed out quite well, but Maithe is the main focus as it’s mainly from his POV, I would have liked to have gotten inside Astle’s head as well but I can’t complain.
This book has quite a lot of sensuality to it, even when there is no sex it lingers in the background, teasing our senses, and lulling us into feeling secure about what to expect from the sex and then bam!! We have an explosion of passion that is more like a frenzy, as they both clash together, biting, kissing and sucking and trying to take what they want.
The storyline is great, the action brilliant and yes some danger as well. There is a surprise as well for Maithe that he learns about his lover during an intimate moment. So all in all an enjoyable book that I will recommend to those who love fantasy, hot explosive sex, danger, unexpected surprises and a happy ending....more
