Anya Summers' Crescent City Kings is one of the best kinky romance series out there, and I hope she continues it after the third book (or at least writes something new that's equally spectacular). In Far Reaching Consequences the characters are authentic, with deep emotions, real flaws, and honest relationships. I don't want to say too much to spoil the book in my review, but she manages to subvert expectations and deliver a satisfying ending. I can't wait to read book three. ...more

Phoebe is starting a new life and building a B&B with the Riverland Plantation she bought to renovate. Turns out, Graham is the builder that she hires for the renovation. Graham and Phoebe have a bit of a history, a memorable kiss in highschool that turned into a lifelong crush in her memories. There was great suffering and physical abuse in Phoebe's marriage but she is now divorced and her ex is in jail for the abuse and murder. Graham is a man to drool over but he's also a dominant who also re ...more
I've read many of Ms. Summers' books and recommend them if you're looking for BDSM stories that contain consent, relatively light play, and characters who are likeable and relatively realistic, and who view BDSM as a partnership. Although this is the second book in a series, it can be read as a standalone as each follows the burgeoning relationship between one Dom from Club Underworld and the woman he falls in love with. I do want to advise prospective readers that although the sex scenes are de ...more

The second story in the Crescent City Kings was as good, if maybe not better than the first, and I loved it. Each story will read well as a stand-alone. I will admit this story is an emotional roller coaster ride with the various characters. My heart breaks for Phoebe and all she has lost, the memories, the regrets, and the horror and fear she has endured, and now, trying to move forward in life. The story has a great cast of characters, plenty of interaction, and emotions. This w

For me this story is closer to 3.5 stars. This book says it’s a second chance romance, I mean only one kiss while in high school and nothing after for me doesn’t scream second chance romance, it’s more like a hey I remember you from high school remember when we kissed that one time?

Phoebe is looking for a brand new start in her life after surviving a very abusive marriage. Trigger Alert with her abuse it is very graphic and may be a problem for some. She bought an older home with loads of promis

Oh boy. So as most know, I didn’t read FSOG or watch the movies. BSDM used to be on my favorite sub-genres to read but that book more or less ruined it for me. I was told by too many people that I would throw my Kindle and Nook, so I didn’t bother. And the influx of all the books that followed, I just stopped reading them. To my surprise, I choose this book to read for a couple of reasons. One being the author. I trust Ms. Summers to write an emotional, character-driven book with a satisfying en ...more

Far Reaching Consequences worked for me because of its two wonderful protagonists. Phoebe is recovering from a long, abusive marriage by setting out on her own and restoring a foreclosed property into a B&B, and Graham is her contractor. But they’re also long-lost friends from their youth, so their reconnection is exciting and unexpected. Both carry scars from past relationships, and that affects the immediate pull they feel for one another. But the past is coming for Phoebe and Graham in more w ...more

After the first book in this series, I’ve been impatiently waiting to get my hands on the next one. (And I’ll be impatiently waiting to get my hands on the one after this.. and the next one… and the next one…) I am very impressed. I always tend to get a little nervous reading any book that involves the Lifestyle and a heroine who is a domestic abuse survivor. The situation is handled with a very deft touch in this book. No part of Phoebe’s amazing journey of survival is taken for granted here. T ...more

Phoebe was a woman who had survived an abusive husband who almost killed her the last time he punished her for the rage he carried inside him. Years later she is a much stronger woman who hides her pain deep inside her, refusing to allow any man close until she met Graham. He was a surviver of a bad marriage, content to have his sexual needs catered for by willing submissives who belonged to his BDSM Club. Not until Phoebe had he felt such an attraction to

Anya Summers has done it again. I love this series and this book is a great addition. Graham and Phoebe shared a single kiss of thanks between an innocent 14 year old and an almost 18 year old. I appreciated teenage Graham's restraint to pursue the connection, but understanding the consequences of anything further. After years apart and years of abuse and worse from her ex, Phoebe returns to her hometown to follow her dream of opening a B&B and who shows up as her contractor, Graham. The connect ...more

Our heroine has escaped an abusive relationship and returned to her home town where she runs into her high school crush. Can they rekindle the good from their past while protecting her from the bad in hers?

This is book two of the series, but it is written as a standalone. No prior reading is required to enjoy this book.

This is a second chance romance with elements of BDSM, mystery and suspense. The story is well written and easy to read with excellent characters that have a lot of depth to them.

Another excellent story from Anya Summers. It follows her usual pattern. Phoebe is a damaged young woman – having survived a marriage where her husband almost killed her, and killed their unborn child. She has moved back to where she grew up, to open a bed and breakfast, and the contractor turns out to be the first guy who kissed her, when she was a freshman in high school. Now he is a successful contractor, and attracted to her. He has a hard time breaking through the defenses she has built in ...more

Phoebe is back in Louisiana, and she's going to renovate the old plantation into a B&B. Her boss suggests a contractor, and it turns out that they know each other. Graham was a few years ahead of her in school, but they shared one very steamy kiss at the Winter Formal. He's always liked her, but senses that she's hiding something, that he sees fear in her eyes. As they begin to get closer, he feels that she can't fully trust him yet. When someone begins to target her and her property, can he kee ...more

Second change in love and life

Graham and Phoebe shared an unexpected kiss during high school but the age difference then meant they each went their separate ways. Now Phoebe is back and Graham walks back into her life as her contractor. Both have scars (emotionally and for Phoebe, physically) from previous relationships. I would add a trigger warning for Phoebe's past trauma. Their relationship journey is paced perfectly for the emotional growth that leads to physical intimacy. I appreciated Gra
