Praise for Teach Me


“Jack Kingston is one heart-melting, panty-dropping, delightfully delicious professor. I’d let him Teach Me anything he wants.”
~ Laurelin Paige, New York Times Bestselling Author of The Fixed Trilogy

“Professor Jack Kingston smolders. With off the charts chemistry and deliciously hot sex, Teach Me earns an A+ in taboo, student/teacher romance.”

~ Sierra Simone, USA Today Bestselling Author of Priest

“Looks like you dressed for the occasion.”“You said I should come prepared, professor.” She wriggles beneath me.

I bring my hand down on her bare ass, just sharp enough to make her feel it, not enough to leave a mark. She inhales sharply, her hips bucking.“And have you, Ms. Reed? Or will I need to reprimand you more thoroughly?”

When Harper Reed came to Oxford, her dream was to study modern poetry with the infamous Professor Jack Kingston, NOT to sleep with him. But his lectures are intoxicating, his knowledge captivating, and his accent drops panties faster than Charlie Hunnam on a Saturday night.

Harper has never made good decisions when it comes to sex and Jack has never been able to commit, yet there’s something between them that neither of them has felt before. But students and teachers are not supposed to fraternize, even as this out of control connection puts both of their futures on the line.

When their forbidden love is tested, can they make the grade?

This is a forbidden romance for the record books. Even though Harper was breaking the rules, I was desperate for her to continue. I’m pretty sure none of my professors were ever as hot as Jack, but if they were….HOT FUCK, I would have covered that faster than a burst highlighter.
Seriously though, you think that this book is going to be sneaking and suspicion and awful angst, but I didn’t feel that way. Lola writes in such a way that makes me support the characters and shake them when they’re being idiotic. Yes, they need to keep their relationship a secret, but there’s so much more going on beyond that fact.
Jack is a complicated man who doesn’t let any woman in blindly. He knows the risks – he’s just willing to take them. He’s willing to risk everything because he just can’t stay away. That first scene between the two of them is out of control hot – it’s just as erotic and deviant as the rest of the book but neither party even knows the other at that point. Forgive me Jack, for I have sinned. 😉
Harper isn’t exactly a pushover. She has her plans and they absolutely do not include falling in love with her professor. They definitely don’t involve changing her life or being a secret. Again. But she also can’t stay away. She and Jack are like magnets: sparking to life, pulling one to the other.
Ahhhhhh Let’s all take a moment to thank Lola for giving us material to inspire our next wet dream. Teach Me is dirty, filthy fun – I’m more than happy to become the teacher’s pet. 5 stars!

Review: Wolf Bite by Nina West


Author: Nina West

Book: Wolf Bite (Wolf Cove #2)

Wolf Bait (Wolf Cove #1)

tl;dr recommendation:  I’m all fucking in when it comes to this series. Nina writes a teasing, sexy and sultry book without being scandalous. 5 stars.

Book Summary:

Isolated in the luxurious Wolf Cove Hotel in Alaska, Abbi Mitchell is thousands of miles away from her family and friends.

In the hands of a predator. Potentially.

After discovering condemning information about the mercurial man who controls her day-to-day work life and, now, her most intimate private life as well, Abbi’s not sure she can continue on with… whatever is going on between her and Henry Wolf. Especially when he’s about to be thrown into a fiery media circus ring, and she, along with her reputation, will undoubtedly get dragged into it with him.

But breaking things off with the Big Bad Wolf now likely means losing her job and her summer of freedom, and going back to the farm and her controlling mother.

She’s not doing that.

Abbi does have something to hold over Henry’s head. If he forces her hand. If she has the guts to do what amounts to blackmail.

But will the all-powerful Henry Wolf concede, or will she finally feel his bite?

Wolf Bite is Book 2 in the Wolf Cove series and should be read after finishing Wolf Bait (Book 1).

Longer Review:

This book flat out turned me the fuck on. It’s the second in the series, so you need to read the first one, but really – it’s worth the investment. This review is going to be hard as hell to not spoilerize, but I’m going to give it my best shot.

Nina teases us with some of the hottest sex scenes I have ever read. This is a no joke, emergency vibrator situation. With the amount of sex that I read I sometimes get a little desensitized to it. It becomes clinical. It loses the shock value. NOT THIS BOOK. I was so built up and full of sexual tension that I grabbed my husband after a very specific truck scene and looked around for the nonexistent third guy that was going to live out this fantasy for me. When he never appeared I decided my husband would have to do. And he most certainly did.

But back to the book. Henry Wolf is a dick. We knew this from book 1, but we’re getting to know this even more in book 2. However, he’s a dick that’s completely infatuated with Abbi Mitchell. He’s under a teensy bit of other stress insomuch that his slimy brother is trying to squeeze the resort, Wolf Cove, from his grasp and an ex-paramour is trying to sue his ass, making false threats of forcible sexual assault. There’s a lot going on.

And Abbi is young. and inexperienced. and naive. and so so ughhhhh STUPID. She interprets events in such a way that make you want to take off your comfy slippers and throw them at her head, hoping the rubber soles knock some sense into her. BUT without her idiocy we wouldn’t get to experience one of The Hottest Threesome Scenes Ever. *picks slippers back up, pats Abbi’s head*

Nina builds the tension in this book masterfully. I actually was questioning whether I even wanted Abbi to get back together with Henry – and that’s HUGE for me. Not because I disliked him, but because goddamnit, I fucking loved everything else about this book. I should note that I usually hate it when the heroine sleeps with or messes around with anyone else even when she and the Hero aren’t together. Welp, throw that requirement out the window. I’m all fucking in when it comes to this series. Nina writes a teasing, sexy and sultry book without being scandalous.

I loved the ending, even though it anticipates a book 3. There’s no huge cliffhanger, which I thanked the Sex Gods for, because the entire book was a goddamn cliffhanger. Be prepared to be addicted. 5 Stars.

During a lull in the conversation, he leaned forward and lowered his voice. “There’s a play party next weekend.”

She froze and he could see her process his words and their meaning before she relaxed. “Yes.”

“Good job, Sasha. You did what I told you to do earlier, didn’t you?” She’d remembered he wouldn’t touch her without telling her where and how.

“Yes, Sir.”

He nodded. “A fast learner. I like that. I would like for you to attend the party with me.”

He paused, gauging her reaction. Her cheeks were flushed with excitement. “I would like that,” she said.

“Since the party will be held at Master Greene’s house and I don’t know if he has granite countertops, I won’t have you wear the black lingerie.”

Her voice was calm when she asked, “What will you have me wear, Sir?”

“I’ll have it sent to you this week.” Let her think about it for a while.

“I look forward to it.”

“We won’t formally participate in any scenes, but you will serve as my submissive.”

Her lips parted and she nodded. “Yes, Sir.”

“Master Greene has asked me if he can apologize for Peter’s actions.” He watched her carefully, looking for any hint of panic.

“Will Peter be there?” she asked quietly.

“No, in fact I understand that as a result of the phone call, there’s to be a meeting to determine if he should be allowed to remain in the group.”

Her eyes widened in shock. She hadn’t heard that. He was surprised Julie hadn’t told her, but then again, Daniel might not have told Julie.

She straightened her shoulders. “In that case, I’m good with Master Greene apologizing.”

“That’s what I told him, but I also said I wanted to check with you

She nodded, but then her gaze grew distant and she looked over his shoulder.

“Everything okay?” he asked. “Are you having second thoughts?”

She slowly returned her focus to him. “No, I’m just thinking about Peter. Now that I can think about him and not risk an episode, I often find myself wondering if I missed something, some sign.”

“I understand why you’d do that, but your time would be better spent asking yourself what qualities you’re looking for in a Dom.” He reached into his pocket and took a twenty dollar bill out. “Do you know how they train people to recognize counterfeit money?”

Her forehead wrinkled and she frowned in puzzlement. “Sir?”

He passed her the twenty. “They don’t give them the counterfeit bills to study. They only touch and hold the real thing. They become so accustomed to the real money that they immediately recognize the fraud.”

“I’m not sure I understand what you’re trying to say, Sir.”

“Focus on what you want from a Dom, how you want him to treat you. Think through the characteristics of a Dom you’d like to play with. That way when you meet someone and you get to know him, you’ll recognize if he’s a fraud or not.”

She nodded.

“To make sure you understand, I want you to make a list of your top ten requirements from a Dom. We’ll go over it next time we meet.”

Her gaze grew wistful again, but she smiled and replied with a soft, “Yes, Sir.”

Review: Forbidden by CD Reiss


Author: CD Reiss

Book: Forbidden (Songs of Perdition #1-3)

tl;dr recommendation: gritty, raw and gloriously brutal. FIVE STARS.

Book Summary:

Everything about Fiona is forbidden.

She’s a party girl with dark desires.
She’s beautiful, irresponsible, irresistible.

She’s my patient.
I’m her therapist.

I’m past past wanting her. Past possessing her. Past bedding her or protecting her.

I’m willing to be self-destructive, negligent, brave, audacious, and stronger than I ever believed possible.

She’s blunt force trauma to the heart.
And she calls another man Master.

This book contains Kick, Use, and Break from the Perdition Series. It is the ENTIRE STORY with a complete beginning, middle and end.
If you read Kick and Use, Break is easily found in the table of contents, and it’s a full length novel.

Longer Review:

This is a fascinating, cryptic and lyrical ride through Fiona’s fucked up mind. CD Reiss has her own brand of kinky and this falls smack dab in the middle of it.

Dirty sex, rough sex, sensual sex, violative sex, degrading sex – it’s all present and accounted for and it’s all NECESSARY.

Fiona’s crazy. A little bit. We meet her while she’s waking up in a mental hospital and she’s not sure if she murdered or assaulted her Master, Deacon. She’s confused, she’s all over the place, she’s violent, and she’s horny as hell. She meets her therapist Elliot and it’s not the dirty love that you think is going to transpire. Somehow, with all of the crazy going on, the love between Elliot and Fiona is pure – and Fiona can’t handle it. She doesn’t even recognize it.

I was completely on #TeamElliot even though there were times that I adored Deacon. Besides the fact that there were two men, this really didn’t feel like a love triangle to me. I was pushed and pulled so hard and fast in Fiona’s mind that I may have lost sense that there was anything wrong with what she was doing or how she was doing it.

Reiss masters the forbidden and celebrates the taboo. I was completely invested and I didn’t even really like Fiona for most of the book. How fucked up is that?

Forbidden is gritty and gloriously brutal. It will leave you raw, plucking at your emotions just to see them twitch. I adore CD’s writing and her masterful telling of a complexly simple story. This book will twist your mind and spin your soul. If you like the Original Sinners, this is a #MustRead.

Review: Midnight Mass by Sierra Simone


Author: Sierra Simone

Book: Midnight Mass (Priest #1.5)

Other book in series:

Priest (Priest #1)

tl;dr recommendation: this novella suckerpunched me and left me breathless – and with so much hope. 5 stars!

Book Summary:

We are told that God will punish the wicked. That sinful men will reap what they sow. We are told to scourge our souls with prayer and pain to become clean once again.

Well, here I am. Wicked and sinful. Desperate to become clean…even though it feels so good to be dirty.

But even I never expected what came next.

Even I never expected my punishment to come so soon.

***Midnight Mass is a novella and a sequel to Priest. It’s intended for mature audiences only.***

Longer Review:

Once again Sierra has gathered up my emotions and shoved them into what feels like the smallest space of my heart, holding them captive, letting them bash into each other and move faster and faster until the point of pain – until the point that I think that may heart may just fucking burst – and then she releases them allatonce and I swear to fuck that they made the ‘whoosh’ sound and everything as they rushed out into the night.

This is not a fluffy and lighthearted book.

This is not a smiley skipping in a field of wildflowers book.

This is a raw insight into Poppy and Father Bell at their worst – and at their best. It’s the dark clashing with the light, it’s selfishness clashing with selflessness, it’s about what happens when everything breaks and feels hopeless and how those pieces can find their way back together. It’s about appreciating the littlest things in your partner, and holding them tight in your grasp. I ADORED THIS NOVELLA.

It’s not always happily ever after. When the pages shut and the days continue, life can sometimes get in the way of those gorgeous moments in time that make everything right. Tyler is in mid-dissertation and he’s pretty freaking distracted. Of course, Poppy’s been working hard as well to create The Perfect Event. This left not a lot of time for talking and a lot more time for longing. You can feel them start to slip from each other – you can feel the hot knife of jealousy shoved through Tyler’s chest and the burning flames of guilt eat him alive for every moment he’s not spending with Poppy. It’s gloriously honest and frighteningly accurate.

There are, of course, hot as sin scenes that will leave you thinking you’re in heaven. The raw and sometimes emotionally (and occasionally physically) brutal scenes filled the gaping need I had for these two. Sierra writes some of the most beautifully blasphemous scenes I have ever read. *drools*

I inhaled Sierra’s words like I’ve been fasting for days. Beautiful and deep, this novella suckerpunched me and left me breathless – and with so much hope. 5 stars!

Blog Tour & Review: His Plaything by Ava Jackson


His Plaything ebook cover

Add to Goodreads


Warning: If you can’t handle a Navy SEAL with a filthy mouth, and a huge cock who wants to turn you into his plaything, this isn’t the book for you. Carry on.

An ass you could bounce a quarter off of.

That’s the sight that greets me of my new roommate as he f*cks a blonde on the kitchen table.

That’s right before I get an eyeful of his giant cock. Cue wet panties.

Oh, and did I mention he’s a Navy SEAL?

One semester. That’s as long as I have to last—and then I’m gone, graduated, off into the real world.

But can I survive that long without becoming … his plaything?

Her Plaything Teaser


This book had me at a dirty talking SEAL. Add in a large cock and I was practically salivating when I opened my kindle.

Now for truth time: I almost dnf’ed this book at 1% when I found out its a step-sibling romance. I know they’re all the rage these days but it’s a hard limit for me and I was super annoyed that’s not mentioned in the blurb. After I finished seething, I thankfully discovered that Nixon & Avery aren’t related at all. Not by blood. Not by marriage. His dad is married to her stepmother. Sadly (or fortunately?), that didn’t stop the characters from playing up the step-sibling angle. I considered turning it into a drinking game, but it was a work night. LE SIGH.

Avery’s close to her stepmom because her mother died at a young age. Obviously her stepmom is no longer married to her father – she’s now married to Nixon’s father. She’s met Nixon a whole total of one time prior to this book. We good? OK. Of course, if you’re into step-sibling books, then you can pretend that they’re more related than they are. *cringes*. If you aren’t, then this may be the only step-sibling romance you’ll be able to tolerate. EVERYBODY WINS.

Anyway, Avery’s in her last semester of college – she’s been abroad for the first semester and she’s coming home to finish her degree. Since Nixon is basically always away on SEAL training, her stepmom offers up Nixon’s condo since Avery lost her housing. Nixon makes quite the impression on his new roommate…I’m pretty sure Avery caught an eyeful of his cock before she ever met his eyes. I was totes ok with that.

I actually found the story to be steamy, sexy and quite the hot read. Nixon is a massive fucker (I mean that in every sense of the word) and actually has a romantic bone in his body in addition to the other more dominant ones (I can’t help myself). Get it, girl. Avery is pretty sharp-witted and easily likeable. She’s hesitant at first to hook up because of their extraordinarily tenuous potential familial relationship, but Nixon is quick to change her mind.

This is a fun, light read that contains an enormous amount of delicious sex, toe-curling orgasms and an adorable dash of romance. I was able to tear through this one pretty quickly with a smile & a smirk. Pick this one up if you’re looking for a quickie novel to heat up your sheets.

– 3.5 Stars –

[ I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review]


My heart still pounding, I pressed my back against the door, as if trying to hold the thought of Nixon at bay. But no matter how pissed I was—at myself, at that manwhore and his horrible suggestion—I couldn’t stop thinking about his body. I couldn’t stop picturing him taking me. The sharp snap of his hips as he thrust in his long, thick cock up to the hilt. All his muscles rippling as he pounded into me with everything he had. His long, sinewy back, his washboard abs, his tight ass…


I could feel his eyes tracing every curve. Hell, I could practically read the dirty thoughts running through his mind.

* * *

She whimpered, and I almost moaned in response. Oh, fuck—one hit and I was addicted. I wanted to pull that sweet little noise from her lips again and again.
