This is a hot read from start to finish. Joy and Warren have this attraction that has been percolating for months and is now ready to be acted on. They both enjoy BDSM and his invitation to his club is eagerly accepted.

While the story is a pretty quick read, the author develops a great story and characters that I really enjoyed getting to know. Joy and Warren make a great couple. They are both alphas but she is willing to submit during sex. They both enjoy having their limits tested.

Joy is a sma

I've been reading Elianne Adams books a while with Kindle Unlimited and to this date she hasn't yet disappointed me in her stories. Take this book for example, it does take a little bit to heat up, but by the end I was more than satisfied with the story.

Joy is a female wolf shifter who was all set to become the female alpha of her pack. She and the pack alpha, while they weren't true mates, got along very well with each other. After an errand for another wolf, Joy returns to find her pack wiped

Book one of the True Love: Shifters in Love Anthology Black Velvet by Elianne Adams.
Joy joins Eryma Pack after her previous Pack was killed.
Warren has wanted Joy from start but after becoming a member Warren wanted her to settle in before trying to see if she's be interested in mating.
This book has a BDSM aspect and Warren is a Dom as well the Pack Alpha. Joy is a female Alpha but also sexually submissive. This book is incredibly hot especially the BDSM parts between Joy and Warren.

Joy has to join a new pack after her former pack is killed she was a joint alpha even though she wasn't mated to the other alpha. She is attracted to Warren the alpha of the Eryma Pack that she has joined but he doesn't seem interested. What she doesn't know is that he is interested he wants her as his mate but wants to give her time to settle into her new pack before he makes his move. There is plenty of hot BDSM action in this book to keep the pages turning because not only is Warren an alpha ...more

Joy joins the new pack after the loss of her entire pack and it just so happens that the Alpha of her new pack, Warren, shares Joy's affinity for BDSM. Their attraction is palpable but one of the things I admired most about Warren is the space he gave Joy to heal after her loss. The thing is can his pack ever accept her?

This is the first book I have read by Ms Adams and I am incredibly glad that I signed up for this ARC as I like nothing more than identifying a new author who becomes a must have

Thoroughly enjoyable story with likeable characters.
The BDSM was entertaining in that it was part of the story but not the whole and complimented well.
Loved this pack and hope Ms Adams is going to give us more about them in the future. Want to know what happens re the land purchase.
I have read this book previously but have been given it by the author for an honest review.

I enjoyed reading this book it was a quick fun read Joy has joined the eryma pack after her previous pack was killed. Although Warren was interested in joy he wanted to let her grieve and settle in.

The book has a bdsm aspect with joy being sexually submissive as well as being a female alpha. Warren is pack leader and a dom.
The bdsm was tastefully and hotly explored and lent an edge to the book.

I enjoyed this quick read. Great paranormal story with an unexpected BDSM twist. I think this is the first time that I have read a book with those two elements combined. The combination worked. I thought this story had great writing, great characters and a good storyline. My only complaint is that the story ended and I want more with these characters.

Fun short story of Alpha's - Joy and Warren - Joy is a new addition to Warrens pack and they avoided their attraction while Joy recovers from the loss of her old pack. When they do come together - fire works!!! I did not see the D/s coming - but it was fun and sexy - I will be looking for the rest of this series and hope they are not all short stories!!

An okay read.

Fairly well written, but didn't drag me in. I'd read more from the author in the future. Two stars and two wet panties.

*I voluntarily read a Review Copy of this book. All opinion stated are solely my own and no one else's*

Black Velvet was a short but sexy read and I really enjoyed it. Joy and Warren had explosive chemistry from beginning to end. There was a small element of BDSM involving spanking, paddling and bondage but I think it added a little originality to this shifter book. I liked Joy; she's a strong alpha and I loved how she put Moira in her rightful place. Warren made me laugh with his jealous glares
An alpha wolf who moon lights as a Dom is believable. An alpha wolf who enters into a D/s agreement as the sub? Hmm, lemme think on that.

Black Velvet had some interesting elements. Some worked really well. Some did not fit with what I envisioned.

Overall it was ok. A little too steep in the sexual gratification for a possible stand-alone. Definitely more world building would have gone a long way.

Will it stop me from investing in another Elianne Adams book? Nah. It's just me curious on what else

This is a NON-SPOILER REVIEW. Black Velvet by Elianne Adams is a stand alone read that would definitely make a yummy series starter. There is no cliffhanger ending - there are just amazing secondary characters that I would love to see again. This steamy and sexy read is Joy and Warren's story and the chemistry between the characters just pulls you into the story. I really enjoyed that Joy is a strong female heroine that knows what she wants. This is a Mature Readers Only Read. (Think a much soft ...more

Black Velvet

This is the first time I have read anything from this author. I was pleasantly surprised. Strong characters, great storyline, but I felt it ended a little too quickly. It would have been nice what they did concerning finding their land, but I guess that gives her a twist for a continued storyline with more fascinating characters.

I enjoyed reading this book 📚, it has a good storyline, with Joy trying to prove herself to the wolf pack. I can't wait for information from this author. I received this book as a FREE ARC copy to read and I voluntarily leave this review.

Sizzling hot! New to the pack Joy is unable to connect with the members of the pack. Is it her ? Even the Alpha, Warren, doesn't seem that interested or is he? Received a free copy and am voluntarily leaving an honest review.

What a great storyline, BDSM with an alpha shifter, an interesting combination, with a little bit of drama thrown in. An entertaining read.

Even though this is not my type of a book I give kudos to the author. It is a complete book at 83 pages but I will state I'd like to know more about some of the other characters from the story.

Patty Warren and Joy as pack Alphas I don't think you could go wrong. Now that Moira was a piece of cake and I'd like to know if there's a book for her story out there.

Wow! This was definitely different than the usual fare from Elianne Adams but I really liked it - a lot! I'm a huge Elianne Adams fan and when she releases a story, I have my one-click finger ready. Anyone remotely familiar with my reviews probably knows how much I love bun

I actually read the first few pages of this book in the Alpha Heat series, which was 21 sample reads to several stories, I wanted to read Alpha’s Temptation after reading over the sample blurb. Sadly, I couldn’t find it anywhere and had to contact the author directly to ask her. That is how I found out the book was now called Black Velvet…. I automatically pre-ordered the book with Amazon.

Alpha’s Temptation being renamed Black Velvet, is puzzling to me but I figured the author had her reasons e

It is a very short read but well written. I only found 1 typo, and the story flows well.
I enjoyed it, but I do have a few issues with it.
There are some items that are left unanswered and I can not find a book 2. Which means those questions will not have answers. Anyone who reads this review that knows of another book related to this one, I would appreciate it if you can let me know. I would love to read more about this world

Joy's old pack all died. Alpha Warren's pack took her in, but he told them to give her time to grieve before everyone goes and swarms her, man logic. She needs to feel pack all around her, but he took them all away. He then became interested in her as a mate and started growling at any man who came by her.
She took up boxing because Warren liked it. She was hoping it would give them something to talk about Then he had everyone band from the area when he was working with her.
He invited her to a cl

Having read a teaser I couldn't wait to read the book, although I felt a bit off kilter waiting for the inclusion of teaser. This is the first Elianne book I have read. I loved the strength of characters, from the Alpha to the Omega, each personality was thought through and perfectly matched to the scene and plot. The story was short but sassy. A great read
