Review: Camouflage by Angelica Chase

Author: Angelica Chase

Book: Camouflage (Predator and Prey #1)

tl;dr recommendation: I don’t give a shit what you have on your TBR. Clear it off. READ THIS BOOK. 5 STARS.

Book Summary:

I lived my life by two principles: order and excellence.
My moral compass steered me out of the slums of backwoods Tennessee and towards the woman I was destined to become, but not without gathering a few skeletons along the way.

Eventually, I found success, but my restless, relentless nature still left me feeling unsatisfied.

Then I met a ghost.

At first, I was sure Daniello was a figment of my imagination, a beautiful and dangerous apparition with a fat cock and an animalistic hunger. He threatened my control and need for order, and in his absence, I became more haunted by my past.

He wanted me submissive.

I wanted to know him.

Then my ghost met my skeletons.

This is the first book in a series.
If you are not a fan of cursing, erotic, extremely explicit sex, immoral behavior, dysfunction, or sexual scenarios that may make you feel uncomfortable, this is not the series for you.

Longer Review:

Motherfucking EXCEPTIONAL. Camouflage is filthy and raw; gritty and tough. I think I have bruises and I’m fairly certain I just came. Angelica’s writing is phenomenal and this story will grip you so hard you’ll lose your breath. I.AM.IN.LOVE.

“Do you think I am the devil?”
“No…I think you are his greatest creation.”

I really hate comparing authors, but Angelica’s writing reminds me of CD Reiss – incredibly well written prose mixed with rough and delicious sex. Nomnomnomnom. I could eat this up for days.

Taylor has everything together. She’s fought her way out of her dire past, she’s shaken off her skeletons and she has control in everything. She fucks who she wants to fuck, when she wants to fuck them. She gets her work done – on time, every time. She makes an excessive amount of money and she spends it on clothes and cars.

She is this line from Sylvia Plath:

Taylor is as bad ass a woman as they come. She wants to submit sexually, but she hasn’t found a man worthy of her submission…until Daniello.

Daniello is an anti-hero who will fuck you into next week. We have no idea what he does for a living, but we know it’s probably not entirely legal. He has zero boundaries and total control. Taylor’s badassery is only rivaled by Daniello’s. Somehow Taylor keeps finding him sneaking under her carefully guarded heart, and she quickly kicks him out. Perhaps out of her heart, but never out of her bed. Daniello appears as quickly as he disappears, fulfilling Taylor’s every wish, desire and orifice. As Taylor’s past enters her present, she’s forced to face her skeletons – and she may have to involve her ghost.

This is erotica on another level. Hot and sexy doesn’t fully describe these perfectly crafted scenes that will leave you absolutely dripping wet. This book is suspenseful, heated and absolutely perfect. If you don’t like bullets and car chases and public finger fucking, just sit this one out. BUT IF YOU DO – get in & hang on.

The cliffhanger left me needy and vibrating with anger. I thought my eyes were going to fall out with how wide they got. Chase keeps you involved until the very last word. I need book 2 now.

I don’t give a shit what you have on your TBR. Clear it off. READ THIS BOOK.

Release Day Review: One More Rule by Nikki Sloane

Title: One More Rule
Author: Nikki Sloane
Length: Novella, ~100 pages
Price: 99¢
One week back in Chicago to witness our best friends get married. One hot night to help them celebrate. And one rule for the bride and groom to obey: no more sex until the wedding.
After the evening Dominic and I have planned, who will break first?
unnamed (2)

My kindle fogged up. I was reading and reading and then HOLY SHIT EVERYTHING IS FOGGY AND HOT AND SLICK AND WET and did I just come?

That happened. sort of. part of it. maybe.

Nikki comes at us in this novella with her quintessential filthy scenes that flick between romantic and downright dirty. The first part reunites us with Dominic and Payton – two of my very favorite characters – in Payton’s POV. Logan and Evie are about to get married and who better than to make sure they’re celebrating properly than Dom & Payton?!

The night that they plan for the almost-newlyweds will have you squirming and blushing and looking for your vibrator. Sloane writes heat with finesse and is one of the only writers I trust to give me an exhibitionist or group play scene that I know I’ll like and that is bound to leave me breathless and wanting.
The second part of this novella brings us into Evie’s POV and the wedding of her lifetime. There’s so much love and romance dripping from these pages, if your panties weren’t soaked before, they will be now. Basically, you need this additional peek into the lives of our Rules Girl. It’s very real, very hot, and very necessary.
I can’t love this enough. 5 stars!

Review: The Voice Between My Legs – Part 2 by Ozlo & Priya Grey

Authors: Ozlo & Priya Grey

Book: The Voice Between My Legs – Part 2

Other book in series:

The Voice Between My Legs – Part 1

tl;dr recommendation: Romance, a little angsty drama and some light bdsm deliciousness round out the conclusion to this fun serial set! 4 stars!

Book Summary:

What My Body Wants, My Heart Can’t Have.…

Cooper has revealed his secret and his deception runs deep. My head tells me to walk away, but my body refuses. Sex with Cooper West rocks me to the core and shatters all preconceived notions of who I am. So when the billionaire presents an “arrangement” that can satisfy both our needs, I agree against my better judgment. We’re playing a dangerous game – one where our emotions and physical desires clash.

No matter how many times I ravish her body, I’m still not satisfied. Lacey Winters has awoken feelings in me that I buried long ago. But I can’t let her get too close. Now that she knows my secret, there’s too much at stake. I have to stop thinking about her. I have to stop wanting her. I have to keep my distance while I savor every inch of her body.

Longer Review:

This dominating and heated conclusion to Lacey and Cooper’s journey is naked & erotic – oh and a bit romantic too. In case you missed it, this is the conclusion to a novella duet. You need to read part 1 first, so…go do that.

We pick back up with Lacey when she finds out exactly who Cooper is – the mask has been ripped off and her Master is standing in front of her. Lacey’s pissed that she bared her soul while Cooper was lying to her and her walls are immediately erected.

Cooper’s an interesting character. He’s hiding his identity, terrified that the small handful of people who know about him are going to ruin his world and he runs to Lacey with his hopes of a normal life dashed and his self-preservation kicking in.

I wished that there was a bit more detail in these books – I feel like this story could easily be packed into a full length novel and more bit and pieces could have been developed; however, for the serial crowd, this is a fun bite of pleasure that will leave you happily sated.

I loved Lacey’s journey and her determination to take every positive opportunity presented to her. She doesn’t back down from a challenge and she’s courageous in her pursuits. The heat between Cooper & Lacey flares hotter than ever and reading their story left me with a smile.

Romance, a little angsty drama and some light bdsm deliciousness round out the conclusion to this fun serial set! 4 stars!

Review: Three Hard Lessons by Nikki Sloane

Author: Nikki Sloane

Book: Three Hard Lessons (Blindfold Club #2)

Other books in series:

Three Simple Rules (Blindfold Club #1)
Three Little Mistakes (Blindfold Club #3) – my review is here

tl;dr recommendation: This is one-handed reading at its finest. If I could come from just words alone – like our girl here – this would have done it.

Book Summary:

I am the woman men pay thousands of dollars to sleep with. I do what I love and what I’m so very good at.

Then he walks in and drops $30,000. He wants to talk. And kiss. And take me home.

In a single night, this man turns everything upside-down and has me breaking every rule I’ve lived by to keep men at a distance. I’m about to learn some lessons the hard way.

Don’t tease him. Don’t give him boundaries. And don’t think you get a choice in who you love.

Longer Review:

Dirty, sinful and downright filthy. Oh, I loved it. Every boundary pushing word of it. Three Hard Lessons is more than just sex – although there is a lot of sex. This book pushes limits while building love.

It also turned me the fuck on.

Payton makes no apologies for who she is: a woman who loves sex & who gets paid to have it. She works at the Blindfold Club, a high class illegal brothel of sorts, and while she loves her job she’s hasn’t quite been feeling satisfied. When Dominic walks into the room and demands hand-holding and talking before fucking, she immediately knows that she’s in over her head. She doesn’t do intimacy. She doesn’t do love. She doesn’t do connection – even though she wants it so badly it hurts.

Lucky for us (and Payton), Dom ignores all of her rules. What’s most surprising is that Payton lets him. This story is so wonderfully written that while you feel the conflicting emotions & tension, Nikki doesn’t leave you dangling in angstville. The story flowed incredibly well and I was transfixed to the pages while the characters were locked on each other – and in each other (and uhhh some other people).

If you’re wary about threesomes or other group play, Nikki handles these scenes with grace. Yes. Group play can be handled with grace. You heard it here. What’s great about these scenes are that you never feel like the connection between the two main characters is lost – in fact, somehow it actually increases. There isn’t a feeling that it’s ‘cheating’, but rather an expansion of pleasure. And there are clear lines drawn that everyone respects.

There’s a scale of possessiveness and domination in this book that tilts both ways, making for an unpredictable story and seriously erotic scenes. Dominic is dominant and open-minded yet also easily embarrassed, sweet and vulnerable while Payton is a fierce and strong woman whose fight against falling in love is a losing battle. She’s had plenty of orgasms, but never a heartgasm…untli Dom.

The story just works – and it works well. This is one-handed reading at its finest. If I could come from just words alone – like our girl here – this would have done it. Definitely real. And definitely a #MustRead for any erotica lover. 5 stars!

Review: Natural Law by Joey W. Hill

Author: Joey W. Hill

Book: Natural Law

tl;dr recommendation: a smut classic that is still relevant. Suspenseful & completely different than anything I’ve read before – loved it!

Book Summary:

Mackenzie “Mac” Nighthorse is a highly respected homicide detective and a career cop. There isn’t a dangerous situation that can back him down.

However, the personal becomes uncomfortably entangled in the professional when he goes undercover in a high class BDSM club as a male submissive in order to find a Dominatrix who is winning the trust and then murdering her chosen partners.

When his path crosses Violet Siemanski’s, he realizes he’s found a Mistress willing to be his ally in finding the murderess. But Violet is also going to shatter Mac’s shields and make him question who he is and what he wants, a challenge more disturbing than any case he’s ever worked.

Longer Review:

A male alpha homicide detective submissive?! I have now read it all. This is a suspenseful BDSM romance that had my eyes lowered to the page, begging for release. Violet and Mac are dynamic together – the give and take of their relationship is so balanced and yet utterly complex. This pushed me out if my comfort zone in a good way.

I can’t believe that this was first published in 2004. Joey was blazing a path that has exploded into the romance that we know and love today – SO THANK YOU. thankyouthankyou. Natural Law is well written and pulls you into the BDSM world. Before I knew it, I was bolted to the pages and hanging on for dear life.

Someone is killing sexual submissive men – and the police believe it’s a Mistress. These are smart men who haven’t published their sexual preferences, which makes finding the killer harder than the police initially think.

Mac is a cop. He’s big, he’s strong, he’s driven & he’s also a sexual submissive. He doesn’t have a safeword, but that’s because he has ridiculous charm that he manages to use to top from the bottom. But when he meets Violet at The Zone while he’s working undercover, she’s sees right through his bullshit. As Violet pushes past the barriers Mac has built around his heart, they soon realize that their relationship is turning into far more than either of them realized.

I’m not usually comfortable with group sex acts, but somehow Joey takes what could be an extremely uncomfortable scene and makes you feel the connection between the two main characters, pushing everyone else to the side. I loved Violet’s strength and dominance. I also loved that she was all woman – she isn’t overly aggressive or mean – and she uses her position over Mac in a completely believable way.

This book blew my mind. GREATread.

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.

Review: Hindrance by Angelica Chase

Author: Angelica Chase

Book: Hindrance (The Excess Series #3)

Other books in series:

Review & Links to Opulence (The Excess Series #1)

tl;dr recommendation: This is a must read series for those who like it dirty, hot & intense with a plot.

Book Summary:

Storms are a funny thing. Most people ignore the warning signs: a strong gust of wind, a lightning strike on the horizon, the distant rumble of thunder.

My head and heart had been at odds for the last two years because of Devin McIntyre, and my relationship with Aiden had only complicated matters. Still, I craved both men. Just when I thought the decision was taken from me, a choice between the two became inevitable. The two men I had attached myself to emotionally and physically had already told me everything I needed to know.

Although the dark clouds were gathering overhead, I ignored the lightning, played deaf to the thunder, and let the tempest push me toward them both. I ended up in a whirlwind of secrets, a vortex of deception and depravity I never imagined possible. I was drowning again, but this time … this time I would be ready.

Or so I thought.

Nothing could have prepared me for the coming storm.

If you are not a fan of cursing, erotic and extremely explicit sex, cheating, immoral behavior, dysfunction or sexual scenarios that may make you feel uncomfortable this is not the series for you. FILTHY EROTIC ROMANCE

Longer Review:

Erotic & intense drama. This book is filthy, shocking and made my mouth drop to the floor. With everything going on in this book I only wish that someone was there to fill it…

This is an incredibly difficult review to write without spoiling anything because EVERYTHING that happens in this book feeds off of a prior event/action. It’s like putting together the dirtiest puzzle ever. Had these been on the table when I forced to do puzzles in my teenage years with my family, I would have been WAY more interested. Just Saying. 

I should note that cheating usually bothers me, but it totally didn’t here. I now gave zero fucks that Devin was married. This is outside of my usual reaction, so it just goes to show how fantastic this story is.

Anyway, we know that Nina’s trying to deal with the knowledge that Aiden & Devin are cousins. We know that Devin’s trying to find a way to leave his wife so that he can be with Nina. And we know that Aiden had left Nina ever since he found out that Devin is the “other man”. This final book continues down the path and shows just what lengths each person will go to get the outcome they want. While definitely erotic, it also throws in some serious suspense that I wasn’t expecting, but totally welcomed.

There are twists and surprises around every turn. Everything I thought I knew from the past two books was twisted once again and I found myself cheering and hoping for different things as the pages turned. The manipulation is fascinating and when it all comes out at the end, I was SHOCKED AS FUCK. You may want to throw your kindle. You may scream. But that’s what makes this series so awesome – you’re so sucked in that you’re invested in the outcome. 

Regardless, I can tell you, it’s so so good. DAMN, Angelica. You’ve once again twisted my soul and I couldn’t be happier.

Review: The Billionaire Game – Part 2 by Lila Monroe

Author: Lila Monroe

Book: The Billionaire Game – Part 2

The Billionaire Game – Part 1 Review & links are HERE

tl;dr recommendation: Another novella full of snark & sex – oh & Lila rounds it out with a massive cliffy. LOVES.

Book Summary:

Who would have thought a month ago I’d be opening up my very own luxurious lingerie shop? Playboy billionaire Asher Young, that’s who. And with his encouragement, and deep pockets (that look very good on the seat of his tight pants), my dreams are finally coming true.

The only problem is, my silent partner has turned out to be all mouth — and lips. And tongue.
Is he for real, or is this just another one of his flirty games? With my dreams on the line, I can’t afford to get played.

But when he touches me like that, all bets are off…

Longer Review:

We have to talk about the cliffy first. Why? BECAUSE WE HAVE TO.

I should have known that Lila was going to lift me up only to cut the rope to let me swing in the wind. I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN. But for whatever reason, I wasn’t expecting that massive cliffy that had me contemplating the best way to wipe that smirk off of Asher’s face. I had just finished fanning myself when all hell broke loose. After the stunt he pulled, I wanted to shove Asher’s face between my legs and then slap him when he finished. And then head out to the store to buy Kate a gallon of ice cream and a basket of action movies because I’ve decided that she and I are now fictional bff’s. Right now SHE NEEDS ME. Fuck it all to hell.

Ok. got that out. now on to the rest of the book.

Asher has a gift to make Kate’s blood pressure rise. She and Asher fight with the best of them and somehow Asher always knows what to say to get under Kate’s skin. Of course, it’s pretty clear he’d prefer to be touching her skin any way that he can. Kate’s guilty of those impulses as well and has to give herself constant mental pep talks to force her hands not to stroke Asher’s face, or abs, or ANYTHING ELSE. This book is full of Lila Monroe’s trademark wit, humor and snark. Kate’s hilarious and the kind of girl I’d love to hang with. As I stated before: Fictional BFF’s.

I loved how Asher began to open up & we were able to see that there may be more behind those dark and mysterious eyes. Perhaps even *GASP!* a nice and caring person. Lila gives us just enough insight into Asher so when shit goes to hell at the end, you’re still left with an ounce of hope.

I’d be remiss not to mention that the SECKS is fantastic. It’s smutty deliciousness. YES, MORE PLEASE. As I always do – I’m so looking forward to the third installment in this fantastic series. lovelovelove!
