The Walk-In (Borrowed Billionaire, #1)The Walk-In by Mimi Strong

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really liked it. 4 stars! erotica

This is a series of 5 short-stories. Somehow, I got book number 4 as a freebie. I read it, I really liked and in the same day bought the other 4 and read the entire series.


Lexie works with her best-friend Suzanne as a personal organizer for the rich. She is hired for a job at a billionaire's house by a bit weird lady.
On her first day at work she came straight from a bad night and she was really horny.
The billionaire, seems like a really horny guy and they start a game of cat and mouse.
They finally meet and have one quick together, but Lexie is told he is in sort of a probation for three months.


Lexie is a great character. She is funny, she is crazy, she is horny and she is a bit wild. Her journey through the life of the rich is really fun to read.

The authors ideas for the cat-and-mouse game were hilarious.

This is not the normal billionaire-meets-work-girl type of book.

Review: Cait and the Devil

Cait and the DevilCait and the Devil by Annabel Joseph

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

3.5 stars. I liked it. historical, BDSM

Cait grew up in the middle of the forest being raised by her nurse. When her nurse died, she leaves her forest for the first time and go to the king castle to ask for help. There she finds out a horrible truth. Because of it, she is sent away to be married to a man known as "the devil".
Duncan had a horrible first marriage in which he lost his wife in childbirth screaming to the world that he was THE DEVIL. Duncan always knew he was a bit wicked, because the things that used aroused him, were not considered normal by most. When the king decides he must married again, he is totally against it, but follow his rule.

He is very atracted to his new wife, but is very afraid of intimacy because he knows he is a "freak". They entered a marriage of discovery and love without even knowing.

As in all good books, there is always a peril close and in a bad choice of Duncan, something horrible happens.

Through rejection, fear and necessity Duncan and Cait have a journey for hapiness.

Impressions and opinion

Since I've read Annabel Joseph before, I was a bit surprised and a little confused through out this book. It didn't look like her books at all, but I recognize an author trying to venture through new lands. She was a successful! Still, it left me with a feeling of " I wanted more".
I'm not certain if this feeling was because I've read her books before, so when I read non-con, domestic discipline.... I wanted more!
I guess I've became jaded with my books, but if I'm reading non-con, I want to read the description of the horrible acts. I want to feel the characters pain, hatred and angst. This did not happen here.
I guess that's why I didn't give it a full 4 stars. Maybe if it were from another author I would have, maybe I let my past experience with this author create expectations that were not fulfilled.

I enjoy the read. I will always keep reading Annabel. I will even read another historical of hers, but next time, I'm going to be prepared.

I recommend this book for anyone that likes spice romance and want the feeling of a somewhat light BDSM relationship.

Review: His Need, Her Desire

His Need, Her Desire
His Need, Her Desire by Malia Mallory

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

3 stars. I like it. BDSM

cover: I loved the cover, it really drew me to the book!

characters: Heroine, she was ready to try new things, but at the same time to jump into a situation that she seems to know something, she should have questioned it more.
Hero: He seemed to be an experienced Dom, so he should have explained the steps better and set rules.

plot: It's cliché, but it's good. I like the overall idea. I just wished, since this was not a non-con book, the author had made the Dom explain to the sub rules, boundaries, they should have negotiated the scenes. Who get collared without even knowing it?

heat: In a scale of 1 to 5, I would say a 3. Good scenes, nothing that made me break out a sweat.

Opinion: As I have stated, I didn't rate it higher because after reading so many BDSM books, I expect the basic rules of explanations, safewords, all the SANE, SAFE, CONSENSUAL.
I have no problems with non-con, but this book wasn't a non-con.

I will read the next and I'm curious to know how the sub will grow into her role.

Review: Outlaw Scot and the Stolen Bride: A Highlander Romance Short Story

Outlaw Scot and the Stolen Bride: A Highlander Romance Short Story
Outlaw Scot and the Stolen Bride: A Highlander Romance Short Story by Marilyn Stonecross

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

1.5 star. I didn't like it. But I did try until the end, maybe hoping for it to get better. So, it was not a total loss, since I was able to finish. That's why the extra half star.

cover - It was an ok cover, it made me give the book a chance.

characters - I didn't like any of the main characters. Maybe the secondaries, the hero's brothers, may have a more interesting story.

Plot - I couldn't really get past the writing. I know they were suppose to be highlander, but I've read many highlander books and none of them "spoke" as those highlanders in this book. The writing was not good in my opinion.

heat - I didn't feel the heat at all. The hero was a jerk and their first time was horrible IMO.

Opinion - I won't try this series again, I'm not going to say the author, because I haven't really read about her. Maybe this was her first book, lots of things may change.

Review: Help Wanted

Help Wanted
Help Wanted by Meg Silver

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4 stars. EROTICA (not romance, plain erotica)

This is an introduction to a series. What a great introduction! I've been hooked!


Amanda is running away from humiliation. She has been left for another woman two weeks before her wedding. Tired of being the proper everything, she wants to be daring and make new discoveries.
She finds out about a job at a luxury sex club and dare to give it a try.

Impressions and opinion

In this book the author introduces the place, the main character and some other characters. Even though it's all about sex, plain erotica really, I can see a good plot being created by the author.
I'm really curious to know where the author plans to take the readers.
I will definitely join this journey!

Review: Trouble with Harry

Trouble with Harry
Trouble with Harry by Myla Jackson

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

2.5 stars It was an ok book. Erotica, PNR

Cover: I like the cover. Not only the man with no face, but also the rock on the left that has everything to do with the book. I like the color of the heading.

Characters: I like Harry, the main male character. He was a good hero.
I like Mitch the secondary, male character.
I dislike the heroine. Eddie was a 30 year virgin, full of confidence problems because of family history that suddenly tries to became a vixen. I didn't buy it. She really irritated me, most of the time.
There is also a third male character, that it promise good things for a future book.

Plot: It's an ok plot. The woman works in a museum and brings out a bottle and a rock from the past. Sort of like a "genie in a bottle", but her genie is talk, dark, handsome and naked! lol

Heat: it has lots of good scenes, but the girls first time was really a turn-off IMO.

End: There is no end. Really, it's stops in the middle of a scene. So you need to buy the next book, to know what's going to happen.

Opinion: Some funny moments with a good idea of a plot. Really the heroine and the end dropped my overall rating from "I like" to "It's ok".

I got it as a freebie and even though I was left hanging, I'm not certain I will buy the next book.

Review: Dirty

Dirty by Megan Hart

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4.5 Stars. erotica, emotional, drama

This book is about a journey of self-discovery. More really, of learning how to like yourself.

Elle hates herself and she is in a self-destructive journey. She meets Dan and he wants more from her than she has to give.
Dan, seems to know what she needs and helps her out of the shadows.

Impressions, Opinion
Megan Hart is the queen of emotion! Really, she plays with the readers feelings like a true master and she makes us feel, wanting or not.

Once again, she brings a painful reality to light and talks about the "untouchable".

This book is hot, with amazing characters and we can see the light at the end of the tunnel.
The author does not turn bad into good, only plays with sometimes bad and sometimes good. Like in real life, like all of us.

I would recommend this book for those that enjoy drama, romance and lots of steam.

Review: Broken

Broken by Megan Hart

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It's a 5 stars! I really loved it in a weird way. erotica, emotional

It's been a while I've read this book, but it seems like yesterday, because I remember everything.
It was like riding a roller coaster, really full of ups and downs and several loops in the way.

Sadie was in such a bad place and her only good moments was through Joe's not-so-good-moments.
What does it say about Sadie's life?

Joe was lost, until he met Sadie. But Sadie could not be found, which only increased Joe's spiral life.

Adam was a great secondary character, I felt for him also. It was never his fault.

Really, Broken is real life wake-up call. How many of us, aren't there in a bad place, or lost because of circumstances.
It could happen to any of us, being broken!

I guess I have to mentioned this is an erotica book, full of sex scenes. I just didn't comment before, because here it's sort of irrelevant. Even though the characters express themselves through sex, it's not why or how they are broken.

I would recommend this book to anyone that like erotica, with a big dose of reality and HEA.

Review: The Tycoon's Revenge

The Tycoon's Revenge
The Tycoon's Revenge by Melody Anne

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

2 stars. It was ok! Extra Sweet Romance

The rich girl falls for the poor boy and her evil father breaks them apart.
Ten years later, the boy is a billionaire on a revenge to ruin the evil father and the rich girl.
As they work together, they discover some secrets from the past.
The rich girl, is a working girl now with a secret of her own. Their past was all a misunderstanding and they are still madly in love with each other.
They live happily ever after.

Impressions and opinion
I like romance and I love a good HEA, but this was too much TLC for me. It was bad cliche after bad cliche and I never really connected with the story.
The heroine was weak and the hero was a jerk. Sorry, that's how they come out to me.
I'm not saying it was all bad, just not my cup-of-tea.
I guess, I'm really more into the frog than the prince. I really wanted some imperfections, really, at least a good fight with blood spilled.
The characters were to civilized for me.

I would recommend this story for those that love Cinderella-like fairy tales.

Review: Old Lovers, New Money

Old Lovers, New Money
Old Lovers, New Money by Gabrielle Prevot

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

3 stars. I like it! PNR, EROTICA
It was another freebie that I found while cleaning up my kindle. It was a good book.
It a short-story, so it was a fast read.

A female vampire that is an assassin. She doesn't do relationship. She has learned the hard way, that she is not human and shouldn't be mingling with them.
Of course she needs to feed, but that's just part of nature, not an event for her.
Her room service boy is what she wants as her next meal.It's fun and hot her struggles with her "meal".
In just another day of work she has target, but fate is playing with her again, because he is a ghost from her past.
What will happen? Will she be able to kill him? Or is he going to kill her?

Well, I don't know. The author left us hanging there!
I'm interested in finding out, so I will read the rest of the story when it comes out.

Impressions and Opinion
I don't like a book that has no end. But the author did a good job here, she sort of gave us a story into a story. So, we got an end to one of the stories and get curious for what's to come.

This is an erotica book that concentrates more into the sexual part than into the plot of the assassin.

I think to make a full novel, which I hope is going to be what comes next, the author should gives more info into the female character past and her work life.

Review: The Billionaire's Daughter: Trilogy

The Billionaire's Daughter: Trilogy
The Billionaire's Daughter: Trilogy by Mara Stone

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4 stars - I really liked and I will read again in the future. bdsm

I got the first book of the trilogy as a freebie and I've found it while cleaning up my kindle.
After I've finished the first book, I was really curious to know how the story would continue and I ended up buying the trilogy and reading the whole thing at the same day. :)

"Breaking Free"
Claire Montgomery is the daughter of a billionaire. She has anything money can buy, but she isn't happy. Her family has found her "the perfect" man for her to marry, but she only wants a relationship in which love is involve. She breaks up her engagement at her engagement party and is kicked out of her house.
Claire doesn't know what she is doing, but decides to drive from New York to San Francisco. In San Francisco, fate takes her to Castro where she ends up in a cafe that has a BDSM club underground.
Here enters Jordan in her life. First he becomes her boss, then he becomes her partner, until he becomes her lover.
Claire start to learn things about herself and starts to play with BDSM.

"San Francisco Breeze"
Here Claire embraces her new lifestyle, learns her way as a submissive and takes Jordan first as her Dom and then as her Master. Claire finds love and home in San Francisco.

"Body and Soul"
Fate plays a trick with Claire and duty makes her leave San Francisco and face the music in New York.
Through a rough, mature path Claire finds harmony and balance in her life.

Impressions and opinion

The book is a fast read, since is the compilation of three novelettes.
Claire discovery of her self is endearing and refreshing.
The characters are strong and well crafted.
The plot is good, even though sometimes unbelievable. That's why this is fiction. :)
The last book is the best of the three, which adds to the crescendo of the story.
I would recommend this book to anyone that likes BDSM romance with HEA.

A good surprise, was a scene with "fisting"!

I will look for more books from this author.

Review: Brie Learns the Art of Submission: Submissive Training Center

Brie Learns the Art of Submission: Submissive Training Center
Brie Learns the Art of Submission: Submissive Training Center by Red Phoenix

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 stars, I loved it and will read again many times! BDSM

First I would like to say, that it has a wonderful cover. It portraits brilliantly what this book is all about. I was really drawn to the facial expressions of both models in the cover.
I know this book was previously published as 9 separated novelettes, but I couldn't really see it while reading the book. It was masterfully combined and it's perfect as a novel! Even though, some people may say it has become a long book, I was never tired and always wanted to read more.
The author wrote several interesting characters. I think this was one of the highest notes of this book collection. Each new character brought something new to the BDSM world. Each character showed a different side of the D/s relationship and had a different approach, different preferences and dislikes.
Brie was an amazing character, even though for a time, I was worried about the "perfection aura" she had. Then, she failed miserably at cooking and I was so happy to read it. :)
I believe this book was all about Brie and not much about her Doms. So I would rather not choose a favorite yet, because I believe most of them has so much room to be explored.
All I can say is that I totally loved Marquis Gray and Mr. Gallant!
I think all good stories need an antagonist and Ms. Clark was a perfect example given in this collection.
There were so many interesting moments, that I find it hard to pick only one novelette, but if I had to make a choice I would say the last one. I felt Brie's pain, I felt her doubts, I really felt with/for her in this one!
I love all the little fantasies and scenes of the book, but my top three would be: Brie in her first auction with Donkova. That fantasy was hot! I also really enjoyed her task/ritual time with Master Coen and her auction day with Faelan. These were steamy hot scenes. Lots of cold shower afterwards!
A small summary:
Brie is bored with her life until she gets a business card from a distinguish gentleman that really intrigues her. The card invites her to be part of a school for submissives.
She enrolls in the program and has six weeks to learn how to be a proper submissive. Each week she is faced with new challenges that helps her learn about herself and grow as a person.
Brie finds in submitting the answer for her restlessness. She encounters several wonderful Doms and has a hard time choosing THE ONE.
I totally enjoyed my journey through the world of Brie and I'm really looking forward to reading more of her.

I recommend this book for anyone that likes BDSM romances!
