Reviewer:  Lisa 

Review: Each book in The Oddities collection features Derwin and Elliot. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.   

I have had the pleasure of reading J.T.’s first book in this series and when I heard this one was coming out, I just had to grab it.  The characters are quite unique and a very fresh idea.  I thought the characters were not only strong but you can feel the way they feel for those around them.  This story caught my attention from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the very end.  I am usually not a fan of very long stories but this one was so exciting that I knew it would become a favorite real soon.

Derwin is an oddity and a bounty hunter.  He hunts those who cause pain and death, including other oddities and demons.  Three years ago his boyfriend was murdered and it took him that long to find out who did it.  He had finally solved his murder three weeks ago and was now embracing his life with Elliot.  Elliot was a rent boy and has his own oddity.  He can see visions from strong feelings.  Now he worked with Derwin and his boss.  He is also hiding from a gang lord that wants him for his very own.

Another friend in the office is scared for his missing son.  She asks Derwin for help and it leads him and Elliot in to some major danger.  For some more juicy details about this story, pick up the book.  Let’s just say it has some major kinky and hot sex scenes, danger, death, excitement, suspense and so much more.

I had a lot of fun reading this and can’t wait to see what other dangers these two sexy men can get into.  I loved the characters and their story just kept me on the edge of my seat.  I can guarantee that you will love this book.  I would definitely recommend it.

Murder Once Seen

by

J.T. Hall

In the city of Nis, things often aren’t what they seem.

Derwin is a bounty hunter gifted with the Oddity of superhuman strength and agility—perfect for hunting down fugitives and demons who roam the streets. One killed his boyfriend two years ago, and Derwin won’t stop until he finds out who. Police suspect it was someone he sent to prison, but he can’t shake the idea that they’re missing something.

Elliot is a rentboy who’s been living on the streets since his parents disowned him. He mistrusts everyone and, given his uncontrolled ability to Read Objects and a client list that includes a major gang boss, despairs of ever having a normal life.

Derwin and Elliot meet in a storm of lust. Derwin’s Oddity is fed by the pain of others, but he only wants what’s freely given. Elliot loves pain, but needs safety and a way off the streets before he can allow it. They may be able to solve each other’s problems . . . if they can survive long enough to work together.

Blurb: Brady Garrett is back on Earth. He’s living with his partner Cam and they’re raising his sister Lucy together. Life is better than some feral reffo from Kopa has any right to hope, and Brady knows it. He’s even grateful for it, most of the time. He loves Cam, even though he’s afraid that he’s not good enough for him, and he’s still having nightmares about the alien Faceless.

Cameron Rushton loved being a pilot once, and he still feels the pull of the starlight. He’s building a life with Brady now, and with Lucy. Life is good, even if it’s not without its complications. Both Brady and Cam are dealing with the endless cycle of interviews, tests, and questions that the military hierarchy hopes will reveal the secrets of the aliens who could very easily destroy humanity. They have each other though, and together they’re making it work.

But from out in the black, Kai-Ren is still watching and everything Brady and Cam think they’ve won, they stand to lose all over again.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: This is the second book in Dark Space.

I have to say I loved the entire book. It was great to see how Brady works through things throughout. Then Cam and Brady’s connection is restored only to discover it’s not quite right.

It was mind-boggling how well and deep this story takes the reader into understanding how the mind works in regards to relationships, tense situations, etc. I was impressed by how well the story flowed smoothly and the details throughout.

Intense, yet powerful. This book packs quite a punch. It keeps you reading until the very end.

The only thing I found I did not like was the cliffhanger at the end, as I have not heard anything about a third book. I certainly hope there will be though, if not for anything else to answer questions that were unanswered.

Blurb: Hero and criminal. Brute force and subtle charm. Jonathan White and Crow Belcane are polar opposites, but if they want to rescue the man they both love, they’ll have to work together.

After visiting his former lover, Crow knows only one thing: he loves Regis and he will do anything to reclaim him. But before his very eyes, Regis is abducted. Kidnapped by high-end slavers. Only Regis’s infuriating partner, Jonathan—a dangerous vigilante—is willing to help.

To infiltrate the slave ring, Jonathan and Crow disguise themselves as master and pet. As a slave, Crow is pushed to his limit. He’s chained, branded, whipped, and forced to obey Jonathan’s every order. But the longer he spends at Jonathan’s feet, the more natural his disguise begins to feel—and the more he likes it. As much as he hates Jonathan, they make a good team.

Both of them are devoted to Regis. Despite the overwhelming attraction between them, Jonathan is unwilling to betray his partner, and Crow is unwilling to come between them. But once the three of them are together again, all bets are off. With the world against them, they have only each other to cling to.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: I actually had to read this twice because at first it came off as a bit wrong to me, but the second time my eyes were more open and I had so much fun with these guys. Although I must admit Crow was about to get on my nerves. Not to mention Regis needs to be smacked quite a bit. Now I can see why Crow was being an ass.

When I first saw the cover to this book I had thought that it was an M/F romance, because the guy really looked like a girl and I was about to put the book back. But then realized who it was and let’s just say things went better after that. Now the blurb just doesn’t do the story justice and was a bit off, however the story was rocking.

Once I started reading, for the second time I came to the conclusion that the characters and plot were well detailed and pretty flush. I loved the bit of humor in it a bit more.

This is one of those stories that will keep you on the edge of your seat throughout the whole book. At first I thought that I was going to have to smack Crow for being such a jerk, but he turned around quite a bit. Crow is a bit insecure in my eyes. He thinks that no one can love him because of the fact that his mom had created him from a crow. However he is definitely wrong about that.

Whereas Regis is the one that I really wanted to smack. Here are two great guys coming to save his ass and he acts like a selfish little boy. It felt like he was just using Crow and basically says as much. He could have been better in this story that is my opinion.

Now Jonathan is in love with both men, and goes out of his way to save Regis. He even tries to deny his feelings for Crow, at least to himself.

Now the buildup was intense and let’s just say hot, but the guys didn’t really go the way I had wanted. Their feelings come out in this story but I felt more for Crow then the others in this one. In this book there was great potential to be a hot story but it doesn’t end the way I felt it should have.

I hope that the next book has the three coming together because damn there is some heat there.

I was expecting more threesome action, but I am afraid that Regis was the downer in this book. I am afraid that I did not connect well with him, so I do hope that the next book fixes that.

I look forward to seeing what goes on later.

Heat Level: Explicit

Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥ 5 Hearts

Blurb: Master Saul is captivated by the beautifully submissive Kenneth and the boy’s love of pain. Unfortunately, Kenneth belongs to Master Preston.

It’s 1926 and as one of the founding members of the Hampton Road Club, Master Saul Liebowitz has enjoyed the charms of many willing submissives over the years. One of the newer submissives to the club has captured his attention more than anyone has in a long time. Kenneth is tall, muscular and also seems to have a greater love of pain than most. If only Kenneth didn’t already belong to another Master.

After Kenneth’s Master died years before, he allowed himself to be taken in by the promises of Master Preston. As time has gone by, Preston has become increasingly crueler to the point where Kenneth fears for his life. They’ve recently joined a sadomasochism club and Kenneth can’t help but yearn for the handsome Master the other boys speak so highly of—Master Saul.

Preston takes things too far one night, and when Saul and his good friend, Master Aaron, do some investigating, they realize that Kenneth might be in real danger. Amidst turmoil at the club over whether there should be rules to keep the boys safe and Preston’s play for power, Saul searches for a way to save Kenneth from what he’s sure is a deadly situation.

Both men fight for what they believe to be the right thing. When they find their way to one another, a wonderful new world opens up to them. But there’s one man out there who refuses to let go of the old ways. Kenneth is his property and Master Preston won’t give him up.

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of violence and dubious consent.

Publisher’s Note: This book is best read in sequence as part of a series but can be read as a standalone.

Reviewer: Cat

Review: This is book two and best read in order.

Ever since his best friend Aaron has found his perfect submissive and love, Saul is feeling lonely. He thinks because of his age he will never find what he desires most. He admires the new submissive, Kenneth and the way he handles pain.  He wishes the man was his, but he is taken by a new member, Preston that he doesn’t like.

Preston is violent and doesn’t allow his subs to call for mercy. He is mean and doesn’t treat them as people. One of the subs flees from him and one of the other submissives notices. After an investigation, Saul discovered that Kenneth is being threatened and held against his will.  He and some of the other Dominates try to come up with a way to free him, but it will cost Saul some secrets he didn’t want to reveal and possibly the Hampton Road Club.

I loved this book. I loved all the characters and liked that we got more of Aaron, Sam, Francesco, Theodore, and Thomas. The plot is better in this book than the first, and the sex is pretty hot. I have the third ready to read! I can’t wait to see whose story is next!

The only thing I wish was more of would be the 1920’s theme. To me, it kind of got lost in this book but having said that…The book was still awesome!

Warning for the squeamish:  There are rape and dubious consent scenes, but Morticia handled with finesse.

If you like BDSM, D’s relationships, Dubious consent, good romance, Older men/younger men, and some scorching hot man-sex you will love this series!

Blurb: Look, I’ll never stop missing Hal, but this Subs Club, my friends, started to review suck-ass Doms isn’t gonna bring him back or give him justice. For me, it’s just another chance to hang out with my friends, even if they think I’m too dumb to understand the important work we’re supposedly doing.

But maybe I’m not as dumb as they think—at least I know when I’ve got a good thing going. Which is why I just moved in with my dom. Ryan’s awesome possum. He’s really short, never makes me feel stupid, and is up for anything. One word: costumes. Two more words: women’s underwear. We’re all about the lace, no leather.

Except when we do pony play. We first tried it as a joke, but turns out I’m ballin’ at it. Now PetPlayFest is coming up, and I wanna take down the Subs Club’s archrival, Cinnamon the ponygirl, in the horse show.

My friends think I’m spending too much time with Ryan and ignoring my obligations to the group. But since when is friendship an obligation? Ryan’s my first serious relationship, and I want to take it . . . seriously. At some point I need to think about my future, not my past.

Product Link: http://riptidepublishing.com/titles/manties-in-a-twist

Reviewer: Aerin

Review: I’ve read many J.A. Rock books and I have to say this series is definitely her best writing yet. I’m not sure whether she found her true calling or maybe the characters won’t stop nagging her until she tells their stories, but these books seem to me like they’re written from the heart.

Kamen has been one of my favorite characters in this series and I found his hilarious and original songs to be a constant source of amusement. Kamen has been the easy-going one, the least smart, and the one his friends counted on no matter what.

Kamen seemed like a pretty simple character so far, sort of “what you see is what you get”, but we all know still waters run deep. That couldn’t be any more accurate when it comes to Kamen. Kamen has the biggest heart of all, he loves his friends, loves his mother, he loves Ryan, and he wants nothing more than for everyone to get along and be like a big happy family.

We know from Pain Slut that Kamen and Ryan are going to be together, but I never expected the tension their relationship brought to Kamen and David’s friendship. There’s jealousy and hurt feelings, and Kamen’s heart is broken along with mine, because Kamen should NEVER be anything but happy.

Ryan and Kamen’s relationship is very different from the previous two couples’; this isn’t so much the case of I’m the Dom, you’re the sub, drop your trousers so I can stripe your ass. Kamen and Ryan are more about lace panties and sexy dresses, scorching hot role play and even some pony games. They have their own brand of kink very different from what we’ve gotten so far, which is absolutely great!

I really loved Kamen’s honest, hilarious and very much real reactions to seeing himself in women’s lace panties. What I found absolutely fantastic was that I totally forgot Kamen isn’t a real person! I mean I had to remind myself over and over again that Rock has written this character and this isn’t a story told by a real-life character, and trust me when I say this doesn’t happen to me often!

While I liked Ryan and Kamen as a couple, I wasn’t too sure of my feelings for Ryan as an individual. I thought he was too possessive of Kamen and he never truly tried to understand and become a part of the friendship with the rest of the guys.

But at the same time all this conflict allowed us to see just how many layers Kamen has, how mature his thinking is regarding their friend’s death, what his hopes and desires and dreams are regarding the future, and how deeply and completely he loves Ryan. I loved Kamen to pieces, but at times I wished someone else for him, someone other than Ryan.

This was a great book, fantastic even, but not exactly what I expected to get considering this is Kamen’s book. He has been the funniest and the quirkiest of them all, so I expected more genuine humor. There was certainly moments that were funny.

I thought there was too much focus on the pony competition. I understood the reason behind Kamen’s motivation, but it wasn’t something I could connect with. And the competition itself was leaning more towards ridiculous than real, with eye rolling moments and incredulous WTF moments as well.

This was a great book but my least favorite so far; my favorite book remains David and D’s book.

Elemental Love by L.M. Somerton

Author: L.M. Somerton

Genre: Paranormal/ BDSM

Length: 165 pages

Publisher: Pride Publishing (March 29, 2016)

Heat Level: Moderate

Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥4 Hearts

Blurb: An untrained warlock is a dangerous man to love.

On his twenty-first birthday, Evrain Brookes discovers he is an elemental warlock. The spell suppressing his talent lifts and he has to get used to a whole new existence. The protection that kept him safe during his childhood is gone, his skills are wild and uncontrolled and there are those that seek to use him for their own gain.

Evrain’s grandmother is a witch, his godfather another warlock. Between them they do their best to keep Evrain on the right path. He learns that in order to gain control of his formidable powers he will need to ‘channel’ through a life partner, a process that only happens with consent and through love. But how will he ever find a man prepared to put up with a Dominant warlock for a boyfriend?

Dominic Castine has no idea that Evrain’s grandmother sees him as a prospective partner for Evrain. He tends her garden and she teaches him about herbs–a tradeoff they both enjoy. He is drawn to Evrain’s charismatic presence but doesn’t understand why he wants to drop to his knees and submit to him.

When Agatha is murdered, Evrain and Dominic are thrown together as she manipulates them from beyond the grave. Dominic becomes the pawn in a terrifying game between warlocks whose powers he barely comprehends.

In the end, lives will depend on his courage, his willingness to grant Evrain control and the power of love.

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of kidnap and a reference to attempted sexual assault.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: This author is new to me so I wasn’t sure what to expect from the story. I was actually hoping for a lighter story with a bit of twist, however this one is a bit different then what I had expected.

Evrain’s grandmother had decided that the moment he was born she would bind his abilities till he was older. She was afraid that he would be taken. He was to be the strongest warlock around. He won’t be able to channel his powers the way he should till he finds a mate.

Dominic is clueless to it all. He loves working in the garden but somehow the old bat wants him to take an interest in Evrain. Even after she is murdered, she is controlling them both.

I like the twists to this story mixed in with the mystery, but it didn’t flow for me. It didn’t keep my attention like it should have which was disappointing. I hope that the second book comes off a bit more in tune.

Other than that it was well written and the characters were charming if not just a bit quirky. I can’t wait to see how the second book turns out.

Reviewer: Cat

Review: Heath is book 3 of the Invitation Only series, I think you could read it without reading the others since there is good backstory drop, but I believe you would enjoy it better if you have read the other two.

Heath is a new Dom at Invitation only. He is immediately taken by the pretty bartender Micah. When Micah is brought in for his demonstration he is ecstatic, until he finds out that Micah isn’t into the BDSM scene.  When Heath finds out that Micah’s boyfriend is a druggie he sees his chance.

I really liked this story. My only issue is I felt it focused more on Micah than Heath.  I would have loved to have seen more scenes with Heath. Now having said that, I loved the drag show scenes and felt like I was there watching and loved Ricky, Mav and Mams.  There were a lot of characters in this story.

Though I love characters and all of these I think it was just too many for such a short story. I have to say Patricia Logan has a way of developing very intriguing characters, and writes some smoking hot sex scenes.

If you like sexy bartenders, hot cowboy Doms, BDSM, Drag Queens, knights in shining armour, and smoking hot man-sex this is definitely for you!

Reviewer: Cat

Review: This is the 5th and final book in the Guards of Folsom series.  There are many characters and lots of wrap-ups from the previous books.  This book begins with a proposal, a funeral and then gets going with the kidnapping of Jamie. The entire group gets together and uses their skills to find and bring Jamie home. Then there is recovery. If you are already a fan of this series, I am sure you have been waiting for it, and it won’t disappoint you. I haven’t read any of it and loved it. I will be going back and reading the rest of this series.

I felt like the book was a bit long and all of the inner thoughts by Tek kind of put me off a bit. They seemed a bit poetic for an ex-motorcycle gang leader.  Otherwise, I thought the book was really good.

So if you like BDSM, bondage, motorcycle gangs, and the tight brotherhood of men, lots of angst and lots of hot Man-sex this is for you. Don’t forget to start with book one!

Blurb: A feisty, untrained Dominant shows up at Hampton Road. Could he be the right man who Colin’s been saving himself for?
Submissive Colin loves his new life and job at The Hampton Road Club. He doesn’t mean to make the staff angry when he reorganizes everything or frustrate the available Masters by never letting them touch him. He only wants to serve someone, to make them happy, but he’s also waiting for the right man the way his grandmother had advised him to do before she died.

Another night, another brawl. Roddy had hoped that Hollywood would have better male prospects than Louisville when it came to playing rough. When Roddy’s latest would-be conquest threatens him with bodily harm, Roddy is chased right into the path of two of Hampton Road’s Masters, Ned and Aaron. They describe a wonderful club to him, where sadomasochistic men can enjoy each other, hidden safely behind the walls of an elegant mansion.

The moment Colin and Roddy spot each other, they fall hard and fast. While Master Saul is thrilled that Colin has finally found someone, what do any of them really know about their new guest?
It seems that Saul’s fears are ungrounded until tragedy strikes in Roddy’s world. It’s then that the validity of Colin and Roddy’s new love is truly tested.

Was their bond real, or did Roddy have another agenda he’d kept secret all along?

Reviewer: Cat

Review: If the cover isn’t hot enough to make you pick this up, and the blurb doesn’t entice you more than let me tell you…just do it! That is if you like mild BDSM and very sweet romance.

I fell in love sweet little Colin in the last book when he was brought in by Ned. Who wouldn’t love a darling little fella that wants to save himself until he meets the right man, yet yearns to taste the life he sees around him? Plus, as sweet as he is there is a touch of mischief and his OCD is too cute.

Now let’s toss in a young man who likes sex a bit rough and ends up getting roughed up every time he tries to fulfill his need. Being gay in the 20’s is bad enough…liking things a little rougher is…well, rougher.

We get a bit more Aaron and Ned and, of course, Saul. I loved seeing Saul’s fatherly instincts come to the forefront. This book is a bit milder than the rest BDSM and Sadomasochism wise as we have to men learning to love and to explore this side of themselves.
If you like a really sweet romance, the 1920’s setting, first times, true love, love at first sight and some pretty hot man-sex you will love this.

Note: This is book 5 in the series and is best read in order though this one you could possibly follow OK, I still recommend you read them in order to understand and know all the characters better.

Blurb: Master Thomas sees a submissive man aching for surrender if only Linus can be convinced not to fear The Hampton Road Club.
Linus never wants to return to Hampton Road after being attacked by a Master there. Even though he aches for the attention of Master Thomas—the one who he’d originally wanted—he isn’t sure he can ever trust another Master not to abuse him again.

Thomas is furious with himself for not protecting the beautiful young submissive whose company he’d enjoyed on a few occasions. He’s relieved that there have been some recent changes to help protect the men who offer themselves at the sadomasochism club. It’s about time to bring Hampton Road into the progressive age of the 1920’s. Now that the new rules are in place, perhaps he can woo Linus into giving him a chance.

As Thomas goes out of his way to be kind to him, Linus wonders if he’s misjudged the Master. He’s still not sure if there’s a future for them. What if he never wants to surrender to another man? When he allows Thomas to teach him the joys of Dominance and submission, Linus discovers that he not only wants to surrender, he wants to be claimed permanently. If only Thomas’ old life doesn’t come back to haunt them and destroy their chance of being together forever.

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of figging and piercing.

Reviewer: Cat

Review: Tomas has recently been hurt by the man he loved. His last sub left him for another. He has had his eye on Linus but realizing too late his feelings, Linus gets hurt. Hurt enough to make him afraid of dominate men, and the Hampton Road Club.

Linus was wary of the Hampton Road Club when his date brought him there and still not sure why Ned thought this would be the place for Linus. When he was under the control of master Thomas, Linus felt things he never thought he would…or should. Then things went to hell in a handbasket for Linus. (you need to read book two to see what happened.)

Both men need something the other could give. Both men are afraid to reach out and take what is right in front of them. Will Linus ever be able to submit again? Will Thomas ever be able to love again?

The Fear of Surrender is book three of the Hampton Road Club, and you do need to read this series in order as there are recurring characters and the story lines. This book you especially need to read book two. I like how each Dominate in this series is so different. Each has his needs, and it shows. Thomas doesn’t want a 24/7 sub like Saul and Aaron.

I also liked that this book stepped out of the club a lot and showed more about the feelings of these two men. I loved Thomas before now I am even more in love!

This book did have more of the 1920’s feel I missed in the last book with the houses and cars and other nuances. I absolutely love this series and am ready to dive into the next book.

Warning this is BDSM. There are some fetishes in each book. This one has figging and piercing. Both scenes were tastefully written and scorching hot.

Blurb: Gray, Jack, and Mason are back. Their threeway relationship keeps growing stronger, and Gray’s feelings for his partners run deeper than he ever thought possible. While he’s learned to be romantic at home, at work, he’s still a big tough cop that nobody wants to cross.

So, when the murders of several young prostitutes falls to him to solve, and he has no suspects and no motive, his confidence takes a hit. Every dead-end, every day that goes by, adds to the urgency he feels to find the murderer.

He excels at taking care of both his men, in bed and out, but when it comes to accepting comfort in return, he shuts down, even with everything at work going to hell. Jack and Mason want him to take a vacation when the case ends, but Gray knows he sucks at down time unless it’s spent in bed.

With his case weighing on him and his partners trying their best to help, Gray is going to have to figure out how a high-handed man like himself can let go.

Warning: there is some kinky sex, bondage and submission. If you have triggers or are not into that, this may not be for you.

Reviewer: Cat

Review: Yay for us Gray, Jack, and Mason fans! They are back and hotter than ever! Gray is now a detective and the public face of the department, which he hates. Gray is a big, tough, growly bear of a man, so, this was a bit funny and awesome at the same time.

We also get a bit of Gray’s past. We get to see through Gray’s tough police officer, and strong Dom, almost unreal, personality and see the man there. And WHAT A MAN! (You can probably see I am a big Gray fangirl!)

The story is scorching hot. If you have read any of Silvia Violet, you know what I mean. There is sex scene after sex scene, but there is also an action plot…this is a case that has Gray rattled, and an emotional plot—Gray worrying about losing his men by not showing his feelings enough.

Though I think that is rubbish, he shows them plenty how much he loves them. (Here I go again singing Gray’s praise!) I couldn’t put it down once I started!

I thought the plot was good. It had lots of action and kept me on the edge of my seat, was a bit morbid, though. I also adore Mason and Jack, and the scenes of them were amazing.

Now for the sex. Going Deep is a ménage story. Jack Mason and Gray are committed to each other. Menage and threesomes aren’t my favorite, but I would fight to read Silvia Violet’s. She has a way of showing each man’s feelings, showing a relationship of any kind takes work, and each scene is unique and doesn’t get tiresome.

Going Deep is a series and does need to be read in order, at least, the first book, so you know who the characters are and how they got to be a threesome.

If you like ménage, spanking, D/s, bondage, other kinks, police officers, detectives, firefighters, bartenders, sexy bears, fetishes, a great romance and some scorching hot man-sex, then this is for you.

– Detective Sam Roberts

Officer Ryan Bennett: Ambitious and smart, Ryan Bennett is a young officer on Houston’s police force. He’s pursuing his dream of being promoted to the city’s elite SWAT team with a single mindedness that won’t accept any outcome but success. But that isn’t his only dream. Ryan wants more than a coveted position on SWAT. He wants to be owned by a strong Dominant. To give himself up to a Dom who will make him shudder with pleasure beneath a firm yet loving hand.

Unfortunately, Ryan has had nothing but failure in that part of his life. Now, he’s hidden that dream away from everyone, including himself. And he refuses to let anyone close enough to see what he truly desires, and who he truly is.

Detective Sam Roberts: Cool and calm, Detective Sam Roberts is good at reading people, during the day as a detective and at night as a Dom. He easily sees past the hard layer of arrogance surrounding Officer Ryan Bennett to the hurt submissive hiding beneath. He wants to help Ryan, even though the stubborn young man resists him.

But Sam isn’t one to back down from a challenge. He’s determined to help Ryan embrace the soft, giving nature of his submissive side. Using both a gentle hand and the sting of the whip, he’ll work to coax Ryan’s submission free. But what will Sam do if he’s successful? Let Ryan go as promised? Or give the young officer the very thing he’s wanted for so long?

The Detective’s Pleasure is Book Two in the Cuffs, Collars, and Love series and is the follow-up to the best-selling m/m romance, The Sergeant.

If you love romance that is epic, emotional and erotic, you’ll want to give this series a read!

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in the Cuffs, Collars and Love collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.

Christa shows how difficult the BDSM scene is if you really don’t know much about it. I have never really gotten into the BDSM scene but this story is amazing. It caught my attention from the moment I started eating and kept it all the way to the end. It gave me almost everything I could ask for in a story.

I had a few problems with the story that had me trying to figure things out. It didn’t really do the story justice. My main thing was the slapping, spanking yes but to slap someone is just wrong.

Ryan was a pain in the ass in the first book. He had been a sub for Logan and wanted to be his permanent sub, but Logan had chosen another. So he had done quite a bit to break them up and even outed them. All he wanted was to belong to someone. He is a strong cop but comes off weak to me. He whines about crap and pushes, kisses ass and that drove me nuts. However it is also shows me that he definitely needs to have a stronger partner.

Sam has watched Ryan break down to a point he knew he could help him. However he only wanted to help him, but he didn’t want him forever. Slowly through time though he changes his mind, but can he get Ryan to let go. I loved watching him win Ryan over.

Now like I said at first he didn’t want him forever and it made me wonder why Ryan would give him a chance. Ryan just wants to belong to someone so it didn’t make much sense to start with Sam. However I was glad that they both took a chance.

Christa is an amazing author and has a great gift at giving me a story that intrigues me and keeps me captivated. I loved the serious tone to it, but there is some humor in it but just a bit. I really enjoyed the story and can’t wait to see what is next.

I would definitely recommend this story especially if you love sexy men with a badge and a gun.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: I have read a few stories by this author and have always fantasies about the worlds she had created. I haven’t been one for BDSM stories, but I do love a good paranormal romance. I can honestly say that I am glad to have read this amazing story. It has a bit of a serious tone to it but there is humor throughout the story which for me is a plus.

Now I have to say that it didn’t flow right off the pages for me, but it came pretty close. I wished that there was some danger added in because I want to see the alpha’s reaction to that. Also I have to say that I had no clue what a coquí is, so it kept going on in my mind. However to find out it means cute little green frog was a kick.

Diablo is a dominate vampire who wants his mate. He is also hoping that his little man will be his permanent submissive. So when he called a Kristoph to see if he wanted the vet job, he was surprised to find out the man is his mate.

Kristoph’s family believed in mating just to procreate, but since he was gay it didn’t’ really count with him. I can honestly tell you that his family needs a swift kick in the ass. He is surprised that his new boss is also his fated mate. Things are looking up for him all the way around.

One can’t really go into details about the story itself without giving it a way but I have to say that this was a fascinating read and I had a lot of fun with it.

I look forward to reading book two.
