Well! That was a lot of book with a lot of sensitive issues being brandied about. Whew, boy!
This one totally caught me by surprise. Pretty much from page one since I don't read blurbs and was expecting scifi-ish something and walked right into an erotic BDSM romantic suspense. Um. Hello, flogger! lol I'm good with that though. I do love a bit of spice. And spice it had!
The quick of it is that there's a cop killer terrorizing this town. Not only that but they're targeting minorities--those that are gay, in int ...more
Without Restraint was one of those books that took me a while to get through. And to be honest, I have no idea why! Big, hulking police men and BDSM. What more could I want?? The writing was good, the characters were strong, sexy and believable, and the sex was kinky and hot. The plot was interesting and I was turning the pages to find out how it would be resolved.
It didn’t drag, it didn’t go into unnecessa ...more

I have not been this torn about a book for a long time. Parts of it I absolutely loved and other parts I really disliked and found hard to get past.
Here is a story about Alex and Frank; Alex a cop and Frank an ex-NavySEAL who just retired and moved home and is about to join the sheriff’s office where Alex is a deputy. This is not where they first meet however – the first time they meet is at a BDSM party the night before where they hav ...more

She is also a sexual submissive who is an active part of a BDSM community in North Carolina. While at an event there, she meets Frank Murphy, a former NAVY Seal and sex ...more
The hero and heroine like to spar together, and then have kinky sex. I liked the scene where he chases her down in the forest while wearing camo paint on his face.
It did have a few sad moments because they are hunting a killer who shot the heroine's friend. And the author makes a point of including the sad funeral scene.
One issue: the author has written a ...more

This novel hit all the checkmarks for me; romance, hot sex and explosive danger. The best part was that nothing overshadowed the other and it all flowed believably throughout the book. I liked Alex and Frank right away and their chemistry was a foregone conclusion. The BDSM was not too hard for the casual reader and I liked the imaginative interplay between the t ...more

1) we know who the murderer is - so no suspense at all.
2) we know Alex and Frank fancy each other and will be a couple by the end.
3) I just cannot, cannot stand the gratuitous sex between the above-said couple whenever they get together - totally, totally unnecessary.
Atlanta deputy Alexis Rogers and Navy SEAL Frank Murphy know all about power and restraint, necessary force, and pushing their limits. When they meet in the darkness of a BDSM club, their skills are put to use. With each successive night comes a new adrenaline rush, and while they’re falling into something perilously close to love, their games are still too private, too extreme, and too daring ever to be exposed.
But their in ...more
The blurb for this one sucked me in and I am so glad that it did. This story had so much suspense and mystery that it kept me flipping the pages as quickly as I could. And then there was some kinky BDSM throughout it as well – a perfect combination!
