Charlie Dixon

“Down for a little choke & stroke. I got you.” That’s the profile of my last Tinder date, and he was oh-so-disappointing. His “choke” was more like a light tap to the neck, and I couldn’t even bear getting to the “stroke.”

The word “intimidating” is one I hear pretty often. From almost every man I meet.

After a half dozen Tinder fails and another dozen setu

WOW...This book was HAWT DAMN...

Charlie is a successful businesswoman, curvy, workaholic, and for most men, intimidating. She wants and needs something different. She has some "specific" tastes that not every man can deliver. So her best friend brings her to her's husband's sex club. In the club, she is instantly attracted very hard to one man...And of course, the attraction is mutual.

Angelo can't stop thinking about that girl from the club. He needs to find out who she is. That gi

The first thing that stood out to me as I was reading Breaking the Brat was how much I loved the dialogue, especially with our heroine, Charlie. She spoke the way I think (aka. the way I wish I had the confidence to speak). She was bold and brilliant and powerful, both in her work life and personal life. The perfect character for a reader who wants to be empowered by their heroine. The hero, Angelo, was a bit of an asshole, but who doesn't want that from their Daddy? He, also, wasn't intimidated ...more

~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads ~~

I have to admit to mixed views about this novel. Overall I am glad that I read it, and got to see two characters get their HEA, but I did feel that Angelo used his position of power in inappropriate ways more than once. I accept everyone makes a mistake, misunderstands the newness of their feelings, but to do so harming another is just wrong. Given that he part owns a club, and so is in an even higher level of power, and

Intensity is the name of the game with this book. I liked the ambiance that was contained within this book. I felt the intensity of their attraction and the scenes of BDSM which added to the storyline. Great story. 4 1/2 stars

I feel like I read a totally different book from everyone else & yes I know as readers we all take away something different from each book but this is in the extreme.

I just didn't feel there was an actual story. She's a smart, sassy business owner who was trying to look for love but has given up on it and just wants a wham, bam, thank you ma'am encounter. He was a football player but now isn't, so he's part owner of a sex club and doesn't want to be with anyone. They meet and it's over the t

This short fast steamy romance was unapologetic in its delivery. Now I knew there would be some editing issues and yes these were minimal just watch those tenses. But with another round of editing these issues will be resolved. So what’s the story about? It’s about a strong independent curvy woman who ends up in a toxic relationship which changes her for the worse (I’m sure that isn’t the actual intention but that was what I got from it ...sorry)
The characters ...well the female lead, Charlie,

Angelo and Charlie have an instant and explosive connection, in Breaking the Brat by Karma Kingsley. Charlie is an independent and driven boss babe. She’s proud of what she’s achieved, and as a strong, self-assured woman she’s been told more than once how intimidating some men find her. Frustrated and unsatisfied, she’s all but given up on finding a man that can keep the pace. Until she reluctantly attends a sex club mixer, where Angelo commands her attention from across the room. He’s dominant, ...more

I didn't really know what to expect when I started reading this book since I didn't want to look at the synopsis and spoiled myself a little. This was my first book by Karma Kingsley and it was a pretty good read for me.

Charlie Dixon is the owner of a makeup line and is currently looking for a one-night stand, someone who is able to handle her in bed. But so far, she haven't found the person to give her that pleasure yet. Until... she met Angelo Tibea, someone who can turn it world ar

⭐3.5 Stars ⭐ Breaking the Brat by Karma Kingsley is a pretty quick read if your like me. It is the story of Angelo Tibéa former NFL star and now he is part owner in the sex club where he meets Charlie when she shows up with her bff and her hubby(who is Angelo’s bff and business partner). Charlie Dixon is a no-nonsense, strong woman, who has built her own business. She is satisfied in everything except her sex life. It’s dull and flat! For whatever reason men are not feeling her.

I received this book with the understanding that I could leave a voluntary and honest review.

In this book we meet Charlie Dixon and Angelo Tibéa. Charlie just wants someone who wants her for her. Not because of how she looks or doesn't look. She also wants a man who will take charge and show her what it is like to be a woman. So far all she has found are wanna be's who are on tinder looking for a hookup that's easy or at least easier than Charlie. Charlie however agrees to go to a party with he

I can't imagine what could be better than a crazy hot, sexually and non sexually attentive, Dark and DOMINATE ALPHA MAN.
I will say this , though, I was really impressed to see that not only can a "curvy" girl be confident, but also portrayed as a successful business woman. and as a woman who knows exactly what she wants in and out of the bedroom.
This book is dark, sensuous and very provoking. Even the way it ends leaves alot of unanswered questions. (Yes, I know it's only the first book. but

What a beautiful, sexy, hot read!!!

I absolutely loved this story. It's so satisfying to read a book that has a heroine that isn't a super skinny woman. Big, beautiful, sassy, smart and sexy is who Charlie is and she makes no apologies. She doesn't really know what she's looking for in a man, just that lately they've all been duds. Enter Angelo, owner of a super hot nightclub/sex club that Charlie's best friend drags her to for a mixer. The instant Angelo sees Charlie, he knows he's going to have

He is the co-owner of said club. There is crazy chemistry between the two of them on first meeting and Charlie goes for him even though her bestie Naomi told her not to.

Good BDSM story, with very good characters that does not lack of temperament, but I like moderately references daddy / baby of the relationship of the two main characters Charlie and Angelo (I understand this words in the story, but I just don't like this verbal link)

Charlie is a no nonsense kinda woman and she knows what she wants! She's a curvy girl taking on the fashion world. She wants to be fudged (dang review censors) hard and cuddled after, but the guys she's met are too intimidated by her.

Dating disaster, after dating disaster. Apps might be ok for hooking up - but often not.

Her dates, her friends, her family they all said Charlie is intimidating - a strong, successful black woman .

She has a best friend and a career she wants, loves the kids that belong to that friend as family, and just would like to have some awesome sex and maybe a cuddle a the end of a hard day of work.

Not an easy combo to find - and maybe especially not for a tall, plus size woman - especially a woman of co

What a steamy book! Charlie is a boss of a woman who owns her own company, knows what she wants and goes after it, and is totally unapologetic of what she wants. Angelo is interested in anything but commitment and loves things rough and dirty. When the two meet at an event and have a steamy introduction, they develop somewhat of an obsession with each other and want each other in their lives. Angelo does a totally 360 and is extremely territorial and overprotective of Charlie, and because commun ...more

The synopsis piqued my curiosity and being new to Ms.Kingsley's work I couldn't wait to pick this one up! This was a blushworthy and different kind of read for me. I liked it! There were many moments that I did not see coming!

I liked Charlie and her determination from the get go. There were quite a few times when I related to her. I wasn't sure what to think of Angelo at first. I had a bit of a like / hate relationship with him. Throughout the story I enjoyed getting to see different

After a half dozen Tinder fails and another dozen setups, I’m resigning from dating. I’ll never meet a man who can handle me.

In one last-ditch effort, I’ve let my best friend take me to one of her kink parties. Disappointment after disappointment have given me pretty low expectations, but then, I meet him. Angelo Tibéa. Tall, dark, with no fucks to give. He’s quite possibly exactly the man I’ve been waiting for.

One Sassy Woman and Her Dom.
by sewsummore

When an bossy woman meets a Dom with control issues you would think that it was a recipe for disaster but you would be wrong. They balanced each other in a relationship that was built to last. For Charlie it meant giving into her submissive while for Angelo it meant that his demons would be appeased and free him of the trauma he had faced. This was a book that I enjoyed reading, I found Charlie to be "one sassy woman" while Angelo cared, protected and wat

There is an immediate connection when the two main characters meet at a party. I love the easy-going dialogue between the two characters who seem to be miles apart in terms of what they expect and want from any kind of relationship. At times there is a lot of emotion and drama due to poor communication between the two. As there is a male alpha and a no-nonsense strong female they have to work through a number of issues before they can truly give themselves to each other. There is some BDSM in th ...more

Charlie and Angelo are fire, blazing across Kindles everywhere with their combustible chemistry in this super hot fast paced new story by a new to me author. I loved every minute of this sassy brainy, no holds barred woman who gets what she wants, going after this former pro baller current no nonsense business owner. A lot of the time she was the aggressor as a submissive which was an interesting aspect not often explored in the genre and their play time seemed genuine and was super hot. I loved ...more

This was a Insta attraction between one woman looking for a hookup and a man who is not looking at all, but with one look, they want each other.

The title is kind of misleading, because he Angelo did not break any brat, Charlie was a strong women who could hold her own but was just looking for a man that could handle her.
If anything she brought him to his knees cause he fell hard and fast for her..

This story is a page turner and very well worth the read.

Breaking The Brat is a ridiculously hot, sexy and quick read. I wasn’t ready for all the heat packed in this book!! I loved Charlie’s confidence, her assertive personality and her ability to go after what she wanted. I also loved the fact that she was so open with her sexuality and unashamed of her sexual prowess.

Listen, I read this book nonstop for 5 hours and was so upset it wasn’t longer!

Angelo is everything a book boyfriend should be and the kink in this book is off the charts hot! I love how a strong woman like Charlie finally met her match and found someone she could be vulnerable with. Women can be strong in front of the world, but it’s so relieving to be able to let that guard down with the right guy! This is probably my top read for 2019 and I have a serious book hangover right now. I need more
