Dom Wars ~ Round Two by Lucian Bane

You'd better lay down for this one!!

Book 2 does not disappoint! 
It's hot and dirty and I LOVE Lucian Bane!!

A solid, fast paced Dom/sub story (game!)
with all kinds of kinky action from start to finish.
This series is so different to anything I've ever read.

I defy anyone to stay cool when these two go at it.

At this point, Lucian is falling hard 
for Tara she's holding out 
but please God, 
this has to have a HEA???

It's such a great story, I'm loving it! 
It's clever and really funny 
but has heart in your throat sad moments too... 
OMG it's just brilliant!

"Like I said, I don't remember them. 
It's more like a missing puzzle piece in my life really. 
You ever work a puzzle and there's this one piece missing? 
Ugly little gaping hole? 
Yeah, like that."

The series gets  better and better! 
There's nothing to puzzle here, just read it!

I glanced at Tara and found her glaring at me. 
Oh? She wanted to be jealous?
Wasn't she just the sweetest fucking contradiction?

I can't wait for Round 3! 
(I'll need to cool down first though!)

The Bossman by Renee Rose

 “Just don’t leave me,” he whispered.

Fuck! I fell completely for Joey La Torre. 
He felt genuine and real. I don't know if it was the Mob 
or the Italian angle - I just adored his character. 
It was probably both!

She gave a surprised laugh. “You are so full of shit, La Torre.”
“It’s not shit, it’s the God’s honest truth.
I’ve had it for you since the moment I saw you.
I’d marry you today, if you’d have me.”

 I can't believe how much I loved Eden too. 
Feisty, cold and cutting, 
every bone in her was fighting him.
God, I loved that. There was no insta-love on her part.

“It’s our last date, not our next date,” she called after him.

 I've never read a spanking book that went so deep. 
I really enjoyed the banter between Eden and Joey but more than that
 I enjoyed reading a story about domestic discipline that wasn't up it's own ass, 
It felt natural and right and many of the scenes were blistering hot.

 Renee Rose writes spanking love stories, beautifully.
I look forward to more!

“Jesus, yourself, Joey!” she yelled back. 
“Why don’t you just spank me and get it over with?” 
“I’m going to,” he thundered. 
“But I’m too angry to touch you right now!”

ARC REVIEW ~~ Monster ~~ by Francette Phal

“You are mine, Eden. Till death do us part.”

In the best traditions of a dark psychological read, Monster takes us on a journey through 
Eden and Dominic Armstrong’s fucked up marriage.

If you’re a fan of Aleatha Romig’s Consequences series then this also should be your cup of tea.

He stood there like the devil incarnate, 
the tautness of his features 
and the barely restrained hold 
he had on his fury put the fear of that devil 
at Eden’s core. 
He looked murderous. 

There were some truly 
beautiful lines that I devoured.

“I am not worthy of you, 
but how can I live when you hold my heart 
in your hands, Eden?”

I loved the story, I loved Dominic’s realization 
of the person he’d become and his transformation.
I had book butterflies from many of the scenes.

“If you won’t let me fuck you, then let me taste you.” 
The primitive growl of his voice was unrecognizable as he breathed against her mouth only to astonish her when he lowered himself before her. 
“Just a taste…”
 He sounded tortured, agonized, like life in that moment was contingent on her acquiescence. It shouldn't have been a very difficult choice at all, and any other woman, a stronger, saner woman, would've denied him this request, yet Eden found that she could not lie to herself in that instant, not when every atom in her body strained for his touch. 
In his all-consuming gaze, she saw her own weakness. 

Words were not meant for this moment
 but the way he looked at her, 
like hunger was his first name and devouring her was his sole purpose in life, spoke well enough for them both. 

“It matters,” he called after her 
and stupidly she turned to find him standing right in front of her. “What?” 
“Your happiness,” he began roughly, “it matters.” 

But, I have to review honestly and there were a couple of things in this great read that I didn't love, 
hence the 4 stars , that should have been a 5 for me.

 The third person POV drove me nuts from very early on.
 It was such a personal read that I would have preferred both views 
to have been written in the 1st person.

And don't get me started on some 
of the descriptions used for Eden such as

the macchiato river of her flat belly

led to the bare ocean of her salted caramel pussy


Believe it or not, 
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this book.
I'm undoubtedly going to read many more of
Francette Phal's books, I was lost in it 
for many happy hours and feel sure that 
I'll be giving one of her reads 5 stars.
