We already heard a bit about Gwen in her sister's book TAKING THE LEAD. Both girls come from Hollywood royalty. They inherited their grandpa's money and his movie company and of course his secret sex-club. ☺
And while Ricki loves running a movie studio and has come to terms with the sex-club thing, Gwen wants nothing more than to be an actress. But she wants to make it on her own, not because of her name.
And it's harder than she thought it would be.
(Ok - she loves the sex-club-part of her life to

Man...yet again I miss the first book. No worries though this one is a stand alone with enough backstory of the sisters that I wasn't lost. Man they had an interesting grandfather. He leaves them a BDSM club as part of their inheritance with the stipulation that they run it to keep the rest of their inheritance.

We have here a rock star who is a masochist and an actress who is a pain slut. A match made in heaven...or would it be hades. He's afraid to love and runs after a

I really, really liked this. The first half was awesome! It started great, I was totally intrigued. I thought the characters where interesting and I was excited about what was to come. I found Mal and Gwen's relationship fascinating as well as their kink preference. Loved the draw they had towards one another. I really liked the battle Gwen was having in the beginning about who she was when she was with Mal. I liked her a lot and found her perspective really interesting. It was

WTF Are You Reading?
Wild Licks, the second salacious story in the Secrets Of A Rock Star series; introduces readers to so much more than your everyday rock star romance.
When the secretive and sultry Mal Kenneally meets the lovely Excrucia, backstage after a concert. The brooding British bad boy finds that he is attracted to so much more than her svelte and supple body, flashing eyes, and flaming locks.

No, the attraction for him goes so much further than surface beauty, thoughts, or even words.
And when a simple chal

Kink at its best. Mal is the guitarist for rock band The Rough and he is the guy in the band with very kinky needs. Good thing his groupies are all screened ahead of time so some poor girl isn’t traumatized and that says a lot for a groupie. Gwen is a true Hollywood girl trying to make it in the acting business on her own and not by throwing around her family’s name. That family is very rich family and has many secrets of their own. Her mom died a very unconventional death and dear old gramps le ...more

Going into this book I knew that it had some BDSM elements in it, but wow I was blown away. This book is so beautiful and sensual and frustrating at times that I could not put it down. Did I forget to mention that it was HOT? Mal and Gwen we so hot together I had to keep fanning my kindle to keep it from overheating.
I am generally not a huge BDSM fan in books, but the way it was portrayed in this series was so beautiful that I am a huge fan and cannot wait for the next book.

Author Cecilia Tan delivers plenty of spine-tingling heat in Wild Licks, the second installment in The Secrets of a Rock Star series. This is one story that should probably have a warning label of the phenomenal intensity within the pages.

Not only does the author delve deeply into the BDSM lifestyle, she does so with great care. I am always critical of books featuring BDSM to ensure they promote the basic tenet of

Everyone knows that rock star Mal Kenneally never has sex with the same woman twice. Adoring fans of his band The Rough assume this is just part of his brooding, dangerous image, but the true reasons lie far deeper. A confirmed sadist who delights in inflicting pain, Mal is afraid he’ll cause serious damage—physical and psychological—if he allows any woman to get close. Disastrous past relationships have taught him to keep sex superficial and to dismiss his partners after a single encounter, bef ...more

When I buy a book, my review reflects not just the quality of the writing but also my own personal opinions about the book. When I am sent a book to review (as is the case here) I focus on the quality of writing and trying to get into the heads of the target audience. I have read the the first book in "The Secrets of a Rock Star Series" from Cecilia Tan so this review will contain some comparisons between the two books but primarily this book is judged by how it can stand on its own.

I am still trying to decide on a rating for this book. On one hand, Mal and Gwen's kinks of sadism and masochism are outside my comfort zone so there were quite a few times when reading that I was skimming through various scenes. Putting that aside, the overarching theme of this story was more about their own comfort level acceptance of their kinks with no regard to what the rest of the world may think and finding that one person who can truly give them what they need on both a physical and emot ...more

Guitarist Mal Kennealy has certain sexual desires. He's not gentle and soft. He's considered a 'one and done' man. Until after one concert when "Excrucia" gets his attention. He finds himself wanting to find her for another round, at least.
"Good girl" Gwen Hamilton isn't as good as she seems. Co-owner of a secret BDSM club with her sister, she doesn't get to play as much as she'd like. She wants to be an actress, so when she dresses up and Mal doesn't recognise her, she want to push it further.

Tan is a new author to me so when this showed up in my inbox for review I had no idea what was coming and to be honest Tan knocked me off my feet! This has to be one of the dirtiest and sexiest books I have read this year! I normally love to get lost in the romance of a story but all I could think about when reading this was when are they gonna have sex again and how and with what? Lol

The characters were different and I found myself wanting to know more about them on a personal level. Mal was d

Received in exchange for a honest review.

This is sin delicious sexy sin. The heat and chemistry between Gwen and Mal is delicious and draws you like a moth to flame. Watching Mal with this woman and how she hides behind a persona is really sexy.

The book is intense in feelings and intimacy. Sexy in how Mal is with Gwen/Excrucia and how he goes about getting what he wants sinfully delicious. Like that last piece of decadent chocolate that calls to you but you want to savor because once it is gone

Everyone has a mask they present to the world but what happens when you find the one person who not only sees beyond the mask to the person behind it...but understands what and why you are hiding? Emotional angst, drama, and a seemingly impossible romance are just the tip of the iceberg for a couple whose dark erotic desires can either bring them together in the ultimate salvation or drive them apart forever.

So I read these books out of order, but I had been really excited for Gwen’s story.

I didn’t know what to expect but got hooked right after the first chapter.

This is a pretty intense book. A lot of back and forth and very steamy. It’s a little different in regards to the steam I normally read, but it was good!

Woman submits, man dominates. It's not better when the women are supposedly self aware about it. Also it's boring when the main character wants to "succeed on her own" and throws away all the networking help she can get. Hard to root for that character to succeed at anything.

There are few indulgences more steamy and satisfying than a Cecilia Tan erotic romance. Throw in BDSM and I’m in a swoon from the start. But she outdoes herself in book two of the Secrets of a Rock Star Series, Wild Licks.

Taking the Lead (book #1) set up the world and this cast of bad boy characters in the rock group, Rough, where we met Gwen Hamilton, who’s sister was the star of the novel.

In Wild Licks, it is Gwen’s turn, and she is a more intense character than her sister, Ricki, and is matc

Wild Licks Wild Licks, the second book in Cecilia Tan's Secrets of a Rock Star series, is a wild, sexy spin into the "unconventional" lives of Mal & Gwen.
 
We met Mal and Gwen in the first book, Taking the Lead, but we get to know them in this one. Mal is the broody bad boy of The Rough, a "one and done" guy. Until he meets Excrucia that is. A masochistic bottom, who loves what Mal dishes out. Gwen is a proper lady, an aspiring actress, and way out of Mal's normal tastes. They keep getting pu

I was given an advanced copy of this book to write an honest review for Netgalley and Cocktails and Books.

This is a hot, steamy and intense erotic story about Mal Hamilton, a tormented rock star in the popular rock group The Rough. Mal is considered difficult because he cares more about his music than the money. He says what is on his mind and he doesn't like making small talk or kissing anyone's ass. All Mal is interesting in is writing good music, playing his gu
