Louise H  -  ⭐ Life in the Book Lane Reviews ⭐
Hot, kinky and every story brings something new and exciting to the mix.

The stage setting scenes didn't draw me in as much as they have done in previous years, but let's face it, we're not really here for that. We want the scorching hot, boundary pushing scenes that each year's contributors bring to life.

Prelude by Renee Rose - 4 stars
I thoroughly enjoyed this quite sweet but delightfully dirty encounter between bratva boss Ravil and seemingly straight-laced lawyer, Lucy, who perhaps isn't quite

The Black Light series is one of my absolute favorites and the Roulette stories are always incredible. I highly anticipated this book and it surely doesn’t disappoint.

Prelude by Renee Rose is the first story and it really packs a punch. It’s about Ravil, a member of the Bratva and Lucy, a lawyer who is looking for something different in her life. While she is most definitely nervous about participating in this event, Ravil puts her at ease. I loved the chemistry between these two people who come

Epic - don’t miss out!

The heat is on! This was phenomenal - best one yet, which is really saying something. These anthologies are just epic, I love the intros which binds them all together, stories flow seamlessly together and mostly make you feel as though you are living the experience. What really impresses me is the ability to take kinks that are not your own and make them appealing. Kudos to all the authors, I’d give it more stars if I could.

Love how this came about from Elijah and Spencer’

This book starts off intense, with east and west saying they're the best. You can decide for yourself on that one.
Roulette East;
The first story by Renee Rose is epic. They are starting this off right. But, if you know of Black Light, they're allll good. This one a lawyer and Bratva. Interesting combo, but the chemistry they have is legit. Things that did and may happen with this pairing. So good.

War has been declared!! Lol, bring it on I say!
The intro to this was perfect, got my emotions all hyped up and my mind ready to dive right in!! I adore all the Black Light books but the anthologies are fun, give me great emotions and always leave me wanting more!!

And we start with Black Light East!!

Prelude by Renee Rose starts us off with a bang, or maybe that's tame considering Ravil is Bratva and all, lol. Lucy has no idea what hotness awaits her!! Need to know what happens next.....more is

This year, Black Light West and Black Light East are competing with one another as to who is the best.

Prelude by Renee Rose
This is the story of Ravil, a Bratva boss and Lucy, a defense lawyer who manages the account of a crime family in Chicago. They scene together, but it is mostly light stuff. This is a HFN as the author intimates that there will be more.

What happens when two Doms clash. You get a War. Who has the best Valentine Roulette? The east coast of the West coast?

What I loved about this book was seeing the Valentine Roulette from both Black Light venues. There is an amazing group of authors who each focus on a couple during the game. Who wins the game? You have to read to find out.

Renee Rose has this amazing sexy and hot story about a Bratva Dom and a straight laced lawyer looking for love. Opposite attract in this story.

What a great start to this book.
Lawyer and Russian mob spinning what you'd think are boring kinks but turn out to be haf. The rest of this story should be really interesting.

While they both had hang-ups, luck was on their side. Lucky to have found each other to once experience their hot kinks.

Let the games begin. The gauntlet has thrown down and East vs West on Valentine’s Day. It wasn’t meant to be a battle royal but Spencer set it off with him slamming on Elijah about who is the best. Spencer is not going to go down and neither is Elijah. This is going to be fun.

I want to start by saying that I totally concur with the verdict on the competition – thank you for that authors! A huge fan of all the Black Light books, but particularly each year’s Valentine Roulette, I have tended to dip in and focus more on my favorite authors’ stories. You can’t do that with this year’s roulette. This year there is a competition, brilliantly set up in Jennifer Bene and Livia Grant’s Introduction, pitting the East (Spencer) and West (Elijah) Coasts’ roulette nights, and ...more
This is my first foray into the exclusive Black Light clubs, and boy was this book entertaining! What a fascinating world. The premise for this book is Black Light West and Black Light East are competing by having their members vote on the best roulette scenes.

I thought that this was a wonderful addition to this annual book event. If you enjoy sizzling hot reads that can hold your attention, keep you entertained and nudge you out of your comfort zone I highly recommend this book and series. This is my sincere review that I am posting of my own accord.

Prelude by Renee Rose (4 Stars) Was a terrific opposites attract story. Ravil and Lucy made a very interesting pair with amazing chemistry. This story does tie into this author's Vegas Underground

Wow. Just wow. Every time I enter the world of Black Light, I feel honored to have been invited here. (Compelled might be more accurate, though.) These authors have a gift with the English language and a seriously naughty turn of phrase or two (dozen). Not only does this book take us from coast to coast, it spans a wide variety of experiences. I cracked open this anthology thinking I knew what I was getting into. Hah! Not even close. Other than the recurring characters, there wasn’t a hero or ...more

And I thought Black Light Valentine would be less compelling as more were written, but I was so wrong as Roulette Wars demonstrates in spades. I am always impressed that the attention to detail is maintained like the blackout which appears in every West story and gives continuity to the book. There was a theme throughout all the stories both east and west that was carefully and successfully maintained that of the healing and process that one of the participants goes through thanks to the insight ...more
Short Version: The Black Light universe consists of two wonderland BDSM clubs that cater to the rich and famous (LA) or rich and powerful (DC). The series contains several entries; four take place on Valentine's Day and feature a finite number of couples who meet via contest, play, and (perhaps) pursue a deeper relationship (some later re-appear in full-length novels). While it's not necessary to read the previous books to appreciate the stories here, it will be difficult to follow the sections ...more

Wow what a book to read. I really enjoyed each tale in this collection so much that I couldn't put it down. Each tale covers a different aspect of BDSM at the Black Light clubs during the Valentine's day event. This is a well written collection of tales that I highly recommend getting to read. I received a copy of this book to read but when I can I will be investing in a copy for myself. This is my honest opinion.

What good fortune to have the Black Light Roulette franchise with us for another Valentine’s Day treat. For those unaware of this format it provides a prescribed location, event, duration, and manner of partner selection. Beyond that the authors are free to choose their kink, the player interactions and what ever outcomes they choose. Given these are eight highly rated authors of erotica it is no surprise that each novella, though constrained by structure and a small portion of the publication,

Every Story Sizzles in this Collection – East versus West!!

There is a Black Light club on both east and west coasts. A rivalry escalates, and a contest is born. On Valentine’s Day Doms and subs gather and are matched by the spin of a wheel. A spin of a second wheel tells them which scene they will play out. They have three hours and can spin the wheel up to three times. Spectators vote on the best scene – determining the winner of the contest. The reader is the true winner here!!

I was given an ARC copy of this book to review. All of the opinions are mine.

We are given another highly anticipated valentine’s Day treat that didn’t disappoint.
This year there is a competition between the D.C and L.A clubs, who has the hottest scenes. The heat is on. There is a variety of different kind of scenes and characters.

Black Light does it again! This Valentine's Roulette was fiesty and fun! Bravo to all the authors!

Prologue: This was absolutely perfect! It was different and definitely added a different feel to the beginning of Roulette! I love the set up and the bet to follow! Let the game begin!

Prelude by Renee Rose: I wasn't sure what to make of Ravil and Lucy to start. Once they spin the wheel and the scenes begin.... man oh man. Renee weaves a story that leaves you wanting more!
