Review: This is the sequel to Eldridge’s Release in the Club Rebellion series. Best friends Deacon and Shane, both Doms and co-owners of Club Rebellion have stuck with each other through everything.

Their relationship begins to change slowly. I loved the chemistry between these two sexy men. I really felt the love these men had for each other throughout. The sex was hot, passionate and intense at times.

Good read.

After playing together for a few months, Terry has to leave on a business trip. Terry gives Gavin the key to his apartment so Gavin can sleep in, but Gavin isn’t sure he’s ready for that level of commitment.

While he likes and trusts Terry—and loves the kinky sex they have together—Gavin has to decide which he can’t give up: Terry, or his freedom.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Part one of this story is Boots and Leather. It was even published under that name. Part two is Lock and Key. Now this story has quite a bit of BDSM, but I wasn’t so sure about the boot licking part. That just seemed wrong and very degrading. It was a good story altogether though.

Terry has dragged his best friend to man motorcycle shows of the year. He has wanted to learn more about the BDSM scene but never had someone to play with. He kept looking for the perfect biker to show him. And he has finally found the one for him. Too bad once it gets heated up that he chickens out. Terry wants Gavin but is afraid of what will happen once they fell in love.

This is a good story but definitely was not for me. Had it been more detailed and a bit longer then it might have changed my mind. I really did not care for the boot licking. This made Terry come off a bit bizarre and desperate.

Light a Candle

by

V.J. Summers

Will broke Dusty’s heart their senior year. One unexpected moment of passion between them, and Will freaked out. Not only wasn’t he gay, but he wasn’t kinky either—or so he insisted to Dusty. Their long friendship ended, and Dusty was left with only bittersweet memories of their last movie night together.

Ten years later, out as gay and a Dom, Will auditions for membership at Club Deviant, only to find that he’s been assigned an all-too-familiar submissive. His scene with Dustin feels like fate, and he’s determined to get back what they once had—and more.

Dustin had buried the pain of rejection deep, but playing with Will conjures all his memories of that one electric moment they shared and the friendship it destroyed. He’s built walls around his heart high enough to keep out the Trojan Army, but together, he and Will may find the courage to move beyond their past and face their future together.

Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥5 Hearts

Blurb: It’s Friday night and Tad finds himself doing pretty much what he’d expected. Celebrating with his friends at a night club in honor of their buddy Breck’s birthday. The music’s pumping, drinks are flowing, as laughter and dancing bodies abound.
Nothing too outlandish, nothing unusual.

Until Scott and his own crew show up at the place. Funny how the one person Tad prefers above all others is the last person he wants to see. But now that he’s spotted the guy across the room, he can’t seem to take his eyes off him. Which winds up being a very bad thing. Seems Scott out in public with other attractive men is a much different story than Tad’s used to.

As one disturbing event after another unfolds, Tad splits before he loses his mind. But the breather he needs he does not get. In fact, things just go from bad to worse, the night ending on a note he never would have imagined. As things between Scott and him hit rock bottom, the only direction left must be up. If only Tad’s life would follow such a formula. But the path he’s been walking lately has never been that simple.

With a world of revelations finally revealed, can Tad find it in himself to make peace with Scott’s past so they can finally head into the future?

Warning: Contains exceptionally explicit gay sex. Intended for mature audiences only.

Reviewer: KathyMac

Review: As Scott and Tad get closer, new revelations come to a head. Coming out is a big deal to Tad and something he didn’t think he would ever have to face. He is going to do it because he knows Scott is it for him. But, when he freezes when Scott wants to meet his friends hurt feelings ensue. As soon as Tad gets the birthday party over with for his friend he plans on telling all of them about Scott. However, before that can happen, Scott shows up at the same bar with his own friends.

Tad is used to being with Scott by himself without other people around. When he sees him interact with his friends and other men at the bar he doesn’t like it one bit. When the scene becomes too much he walks out to go home. He didn’t count on Scott following him out and he sure didn’t count on him following him home.

This installment was hard to read, at times. Tad and Scott have their first major fight and it is a big one. Both say things they didn’t mean and Scott reveals some things that make Tad start to question their relationship.

Kora Knight brilliantly takes Tad and Scott through some pretty emotional situations but with the help of friends and his own determination, Tad is not going to give up that easily. Scott is the one for him and he will not stop until he convinces Scott of the same.

Sex through each installment has been some of the most erotic and hottest scenes I have ever read. But, make-up sex? The author does not let us down but I didn’t think she would. I went through a lot of emotions in this book. From tears, to smiling, to cheering that everything was looking up and hopefully on the right path. When Tad opens up and tells Scott how he has related everything together with different aspects throughout their journey so far, was so captivating and gratifying to read.

Kora Knight has written an exceptionally well-thought out series with characters that are perfect for each other. The character development that each man shows as the weeks go by is amazing. From book 1 to book 5, Ms. Knight has executed it flawlessly.

This series is one that I will definitely read over and over for many reasons. The flow is seamless and the dialogue is spot on taking the reader on an erotic adventure but at the same time building a beautiful relationship between two very charismatic guys that are perfect for each other.

Book 6 comes out in the fall and I will be waiting on pins and needles for its release. Thank you Kora Knight for a truly breathtaking spectacular series that evokes so much love and goodness…

Viktor's Familiar by Maggie Walsh

Length: Novella (157 pages)

Blurb: When vampire Dom Viktor, second in command for King Dante Calabrese, meets his natural-born submissive mate, Adam, he wants nothing more than to claim him, but he cannot as long as Adam is bound to his witch, Rory.

They set out on a journey with some of their Angel Pack friends to find a way to break the bond, but the spell they need is known by only one living witch, the mysterious Zane. Along the way they meet some new allies and enemies. When Adam takes it upon himself to follow a lead and goes missing, Viktor turns to his friends to help him find his mate and bring him home safely.

A new witch in town stirs up trouble as she tries to snag one of the mated wolves as her own and Alpha mate Jesse leaves the pack to find a way to deal with his newfound powers. Viktor tries to save Adam in time and bring him home where he belongs.

ISBN: 978-1-63259-385-6

Product Link: http://www.bookstrand.com/viktors-familiar

Reviewer: Leigh

Review: This book is part of a series and should be read in order. Also coincides with the Angel Pack Series.

Viktor is the second in command of King Dante. Since Dante has found his mates, Viktor has been taking more responsibilities in ruling the vampires. He is happy for his king, but also feels a little jealous. When he discovers his mate’s scent on a sweater in the king’s office he immediately goes to the king to find out where his mate is. This leads him to the Angel Pack house where he comes face to face with his mate Adam.

Adam is the bound familiar of witch Rory. He is a natural submissive who must obey whomever he is bound to. Since he is already bound to Rory he knows he will never have a mate, or at least he is not supposed to. That all changes when he meets Viktor.

Both Viktor and Adam fit perfectly together. They both have the same sexual interests and want to complete their mating. But the bound to Rory is in the way of them being completely together. Luckily as they work on a way of breaking the bound, Viktor and Adam still find a way to be together whenever they can. Adam is adorable and Viktor is the big bad Dom. They were both cute and damn sexy together.

This book was half about the relationship between Viktor and Adam. The other half was about the ongoing story arc involving the paranormal world and changes taking place. It also gives more information about what the Angel Pack and their allies are going up against and what it all means. So a hell of a lot of things get revealed and happen. I mean a lot.

This book kept me on my toes as I wondered what would happen next. New characters are introduced. The reasons behind Malachi and who he is gets told. There is also more explanation about the prophecy and what is all means to the paranormal rulers and their mates. And still there is more. Like I said a lot happens.

This book was a bit of a rollercoaster ride. There were ups and downs all over the place. It answered a few questions as well as brought up even more. I can’t wait for the next book in this world to see what happens next.

Hi guys, today we have author Heidi Belleau & cover artist Vivian Ng stopping by to show off the brand new covers for the Rear Entrance Video series. We have a great guest post and a special offer from Riptide Publishing, there’s also links to Thommie’s reviews of the series. So enjoy the post <3 ~Pixie~

Apple Polisher

(Rear Entrance Video 01)
by

Heidi Belleau

This straight-A student has a dirty little secret.

Christian Blake dreams of being a kindergarten teacher, but making the grade means maintaining a squeaky clean image: no drinking, no drugs, no swearing, no sex. And definitely no falling for his new roommate—tattooed bad-boy Max, who may or may not be a drug dealer.

Most of all, it means no working at a porn store. But Christian’s aunt has cancer, and her beloved Rear Entrance Video will go bankrupt if Christian doesn’t take over managerial duties. Soon enough, Christian finds himself juggling sticky twenty-five cent peep show booths, a blackmailing employee, and a demanding professor who likes to make an example of him.

And then there’s Max, who doesn’t know anything about the store, but hates Christian’s preppy sweater vests and the closet Christian forces him into when they’re together. Max just wants Christian to be himself—even though Max is keeping secrets of his own. Christian struggles to find the impossible balance between his real life and the ideal one he thinks a teacher needs to live . . . all while trying to keep his aunt’s dream alive without losing his own.

This gamer geek has a pretty little secret.

Art student and MMORPG addict Robert Ng has always been a loner, but he’s recently made it his goal to make more (IRL) friends. Which is how he winds up working nights at Rear Entrance Video, shilling sketchy porn and blowup dolls as a favor to his roommate. The longer he works there, though, the more he realizes he’ll never be truly happy until he becomes the person he is online: his female persona, Bobby.

Bobby is cuter and funnier than Rob is, and a thousand times more popular with boys. Becoming Bobby IRL presents its own set of challenges, though . . . especially when you’re sitting on the fence between two genders, only one of which has caught the attention of your seriously cute customer/classmate.

Dylan Ford is a six-foot Inuit comic book artist who always says what’s on his mind, and screw anyone who doesn’t like it. As rough as he appears, though, Dylan has a soft spot for Rob. But will out-and-proud Dylan still want Rob if he’s not all man?

by

Heidi Belleau

This macho jock has a crooked little secret.

College hockey player Austin Puett is in trouble. Unless he starts treating his flamboyantly gay roommate with respect, he’ll lose his room and his job at Rear Entrance Video. But Austin’s got a not-so-straight secret of his own: nothing turns him on more than insults implying he’s gay—even though he’s definitely not!—and all his old coping methods have stopped working.

Pure desperation drives him to rent a Mischievous Pictures porn flick about straight men tricked into servicing Puck, a male dominant. Instead of letting off steam, though, it just leaves him craving more, more, more, and suddenly, Austin finds himself at Mischievous Pictures Studios for an audition. After all, you can be Gay For Pay and still be straight . . . right?

But meeting Liam Williams, the real person behind Puck, confuses Austin even more. Liam really seems to like him as a person, and Austin likes him back. And while Gay For Pay’s okay, what does it make Austin if he still wants Liam when the cameras aren’t rolling?

Review: This is a well written short story. This was like reading someone’s fantasy or a post in Literotica. It’s only fifteen pages, but I could not stop reading what would happen next.

There is little backstory or anything to blog it down. You get the general reason Max has walked into the establishment and moves right into the action. The damn sexy and very erotic action.

All in all, a very good and enjoyable read for those who like a little something to fuel a fantasy of their own.

Reviewer: Prime

Review: To repeat from my review of book 2: I’ve binged read this series and it was totally awesome, so excuse me while I blurt out my adoration! This series really and truly needs to be read in order, so quick, go back to Beyond the Edge before picking up this one.

Book 1: Beyond the Edge was reviewed on MM Good Book Reviews when it was first released back in 2012 and although I rate the book higher than the other reviewer, as a quick side note I’m just going to say that you’ll get more satisfaction out of it going in with the knowledge that this is hot BDSM and it is not a ménage romance.

However, in a sort of evolution as we see the characters develop along the three books, there’s a bit of romance in book 2 and now that we are up to book 3 it is almost primarily a romance between three men: James, Tate and Sebastian. In fact, there is not nearly as much BDSM in this third book as there were in the previous. Though if you’re me this doesn’t matter so much as the actual storyline since the BDSM has always been an intrinsic part of the story line it goes back to the development of the actual story and characters.

Also, what BDSM there is in this book it is there for a reason it hasn’t just been thrown in and the author has hoped for the best. In short, it makes total sense in my mind how Elizabeth Lister structured this and makes the characters more relatable because they feel more real and more “human”. Ok, enough with my philosophical talk.

Clearly it is no secret that this series has blown me away. I have enjoyed it more than I honestly thought that I would. We meet up with James, Sebastian and Tate five years into their ménage relationship and they just feel right together as they had previously.

All three men are wonderful and the various minor characters (some of which pop up in all the books) are just as wonderful. I especially like James: he may be a big, strong, Dom, but he is also somewhat of a gentle giant with a massive heart. I also love Tate and Sebastian in their own right. Tate is a cross between a mother hen and trying to be Superman, while Sebastian is just so adorable I want to hug him and squeeze the stuffing out of him.

The minor characters take more of a role in A Numinous Light. They are the primary source of drama, although James does his own fair share, too. Again, this is something that enriches this series and made things feel more real.

We also deal with more emotion and real life situations in this book, which adds to the realism where it is clear that we are just having a peek into the lives of three ordinary, yet extraordinary, men who love each other and have developed a strong bond.

This was an excellent ending to an excellent series. Enjoy the kink and enjoy the romance and enjoy three guys just living their lives. 

Blurb: Can a pirate and a doctor find love on the seas?
Stephen is a doctor, a practical man who wishes his sister wouldn’t worry so about the pirates that plague their island home. So it’s ironic that Stephen himself is set upon by just those pirates, who carry him off to heal their wounded captain.

John is a pirate captain, master of his fate and used to getting what he wants. And he decides he wants Stephen, even when the good doctor wants nothing more than to run away from him.
Can the beast convince the doctor who the sailors call the butcher to stay with him?

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of BDSM, non-consensual sex and dubious consent during captivity.

Publisher’s Note: This book was previously published elsewhere. It has been revised and re-edited for release with Totally Bound.

Purchase Link: https://www.totallybound.com/the-butcher-and-the-beast

Review: I really had to laugh as I started reading this. Back in the day when I first starting reading romance novels, they were the good old-fashioned bodice rippers that I sneaked from my mother. And damned if this isn’t one except with two men.

Stephen is a very proper gentleman doctor who is abducted by a pirate crew to tend to their captain. Of course it isn’t just his wounds the captain wants attained to. So comes the forced seduction of the good doctor by the beastly pirate captain.

There is tons of sex. Pretty much all over the book. All and all it’s good hot sex. Very raunchy. There are light elements of BDSM with some pain play and a few other things. Definitely non-consensual and dubious consent through a good part of it.

The story is absolutely ridiculous and hilarious. But I feel no guilt in saying I highly enjoyed it. I found myself liking both characters with no real clue why. There is no real history on either of them. John is not a nice man and is very upfront about it. Stephen is almost a complete innocent. But it works in true bodice ripper fashion.

If you are looking for some deep meaning in your story this is not it. On the other hand if you are looking for something that will give you a good laugh and high sex content this should definitely do it.

Blurb: Théoden: Tonight, I have to make one of the hardest decisions of my life. I have to choose which two on my children to send off with my Sire, my King, Ara. As you know, I don’t like to share what belongs to me, but I can’t deny my King what he’s commanded of me. The highlight of my evening, however, will be my ascension to Prince of the City. I’m expected to announce my own decree at tonight’s ceremony and I can’t wait. The citizen of the Kingdom of Ara WILL respect my rule… or else.

Noel: I got a break last night when Théoden allowed his sons some free time. But tonight is going to be no walk in the park for me. Marco is all business and he doesn’t take his job of training me lightly. I’m still trying to figure out what I can and can’t do around him, the cruel, sadistic bastard is so unpredictable. One thing is for certain, I want to learn what it means to be a vampire. I don’t want to be ruled by my nature… I want to control it.

Warning: This serial contains strong adult content not meant for sensitive eyes. The novelettes in this serial will be filled with dark, twisted, raunchy, and steamy scenes between powerful, sexy men that will either offend you or get ya revved up. This series will not be pulling any punches, and it won’t apologize for hurting your feelings, either. You’ll find no fluff and ruffles here. The vampires are not misunderstood, hopeless romantics looking for love. The werewolves are not cute and cuddly and the dragons aren’t the ones from your childhood. This is NOT a romance. There are approximately 24,800 words in this novelette.

Reviewer: KathyMac

Review: For those of us enraptured with Nicholas Bella’s paranormal series, Season 2, Book 2 titled Ascension picks up where we left off in Commanded. This installment is about Théoden and his coronation making him Prince of the city. As we learned in the last book, Ara the King will be leaving to take over more properties and will appoint Théoden to rule in his place.

The night is going to be busy with many changes taking place. After the brothers wake and everyone enjoys their share of cream of wheat for breakfast, or better known as cum in the vampire world, Théoden advises them of the new changes taking place. Noel is a little confused as to, how and if, any of these new changes will be affecting him.
Marco is in charge of training Noel and shopping for new clothes. Noel is under the assumption (and we know what happens when you assume) that now that he is embraced he would be an equal brother.

Marco is shredding that theory to pieces. He continues to be the bastard we all know and love except, I don’t think Noel is loving him too much right now. He is quickly learning the ways of the vampires with fighting and feeding since their time for training has been cut short. Marco is going to be a brutal teacher and Noel will have to learn to curb his attitude or pay, dearly.

As midnight rolls around, all the vampires in the kingdom Fanart Ascension Nicholas Bellahave gathered at the King’s command. As the coronation gets underway Théoden takes his rightful place at the throne. As the Prince of the city he has a few decrees of his own he expects everyone to follow. And…if they don’t, there will be hell to pay. But priorities come first…feast and fuck. 

If you love this series for the wild, no holds barred sex, you will get it. If you love this series for the plot, the take no prisoners dialogue, you will get that, too. Nicholas, cleverly, gives us a little of everything including throwing in a little bit of mystery and suspense as they search for Dante, the wolf hybrid. I am really looking forward to see what he brings to the story and especially the House of Théoden. Will the Prince get his wolf-man? My money is on Théoden.

Each installment shows the author’s originality and imagination. Nicholas doesn’t hold back and continues to break the mold with his storytelling. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for Noel and Théoden and my curiosity is really peaked for Dante. Up next is Negotiation. Could that mean what I think that means? Heh, I guess I have to wait and see.

Blurb: There was a time when Master Saul Alvarez filled his days fighting and his nights teaching willing subs the pleasure of his whip. His compassionate understanding of the masochist mind makes him the most sought after professional sadist in the Miami BDSM community. Neither role invites long-term relationships, but he’s comfortable with his solitary existence until he is charged with guarding Durango’s prized whore. One look into those terror-filled eyes has him vowing to risk it all to save the beautiful man.

Javier Escardo had been praying for death, but never expected the stone cold killer he got in response. One glimpse into those sinful eyes reveals not only the promise of retribution, but also a reason to live. Seven years later, free and mostly sane, Javier is determined to take what belongs to him. Saul’s heart. Through hell and back, through layers of pain and shifting realities, that one truth has remained firm. His protector needs saving and he can’t do it alone.

Hidden beneath the public persona, Kyle Jansen is a man who craves to be invisible without being insignificant. He longs to find a Master who will see his need to be taken over without abusing him and a lover who will care about him beyond the sexual games. It isn’t until he encounters the smoldering combination of Saul and Javier that he realizes it was never supposed to be just one partner at all.

Can two battered hearts be mended by the love of a third? Kyle becomes the light to their darkness, and he’s willing to risk his heart for theirs, but when the past threatens Saul, will Javier’s sacrifice destroy them all?

Reviewer: KathyMac

Review: Seems like we have been waiting forever for this latest installment to the Sizzling Miami series, The Protector, by Jessie G. It hasn’t really been that long but when you are invested in the characters, it’s hard to wait. However, the wait is over, and Holy Hell, it was so worth it. This author has a way of taking damaged, broken men, and giving them something to cling to, something to hope for, and ultimately, the chance of love.

For seven years, Saul has nursed, pampered, cared for, and protected the heart and soul of Javier Escardo. Knowing retribution would one day be his for the torture and horrific acts done to his boys physical and mental well-being, Saul finds it hard to forget. When Javi kneeled at Saul’s feet all those years ago, he knew then he would do whatever it took to protect and care for this innocent young man.

As you read the story, you will discover everything that these two went through and endured in order to have the freedom they have today. However, that freedom still comes with a heavy weight on their shoulders knowing that one day the man responsible for all of their nightmares would come to collect.

Saul and Javi have a unique relationship. They have spent years healing from the past and Saul does anything and everything to ensure Javi is loved and taken care of. The one thing they don’t have…is a sexual relationship. I understand their reasons behind it, however, I had a hard time believing that for seven years they hadn’t even as much as kissed, until now.

Before Javi was pushed into Saul’s care he was a badass dominant who loved to wield his whip for any willing sub. Some of those same things that Saul enjoyed performing at the club were also some of the same things that broke Javi. Yes, the abuse was from a monster but, for fear of losing him again, Saul put those things behind him and never looked back.

Javi knows or at least he thinks he knows that Saul misses being a Dom and having a sub, he can work over. He starts introducing a plan to bring a third into their relationship in hopes of bridging the gap between them.

Kip aka Kyle has been a porn star for 10 years. He is more than ready to leave that part of his life behind and see what his future holds. Sitting in a café one day, minding his own business, he becomes mesmerized by the beautiful and loving couple across from him. As they share an intimate kiss, he gets caught staring at them and instead of the couple being mad they flirt with him. Running into them again just a day or two later he takes his chances with the couple and tells them what he wants. Since Javi and Saul were thinking about a third anyway, finding Kyle just cements their decision.

Saul is not willing to jeopardize the progress Javi has made over the years. He needs Kyle to understand that Javi comes first if they are going to try this type of relationship. Kyle understands more than they realize. He sees how Saul treats Javi with kid gloves. He sees how Javi looks at Saul with so much love and adoration. But, before they can really get into any type of relationship, Kyle has to finish his contract as a porn star.

When his time is up, he knows he should go in the other direction but he is pulled back to the two men hoping to have just a small part of their world.

There is so much going on in this story it’s not possible to break it down in a few short sentences. Behind the scenes are a whole cast of characters that have a lot of stuff going on. Also, the time has come to put an end to the evil monsters that have haunted them for many years. The plan they have concocted is not simple or easy. People will be hurt, trust will be broken, and some things will never be the same again.

Kyle returns just as they are about to put their plan into action. Saul is not happy, at all, that Kyle or Javi will be anywhere near the danger ahead. Even though Kyle is new to their relationship and family, they know they have a connection. Watching Saul realize and finally accept that he can have the things he has been missing out on with Kyle was captivating. Saul needs to be in control and Javi needs to nurture. Bringing Kyle into their home allows for all of those things to come together beautifully.

The world fell away when Saul kissed him. It was neither brutal nor vicious. It was all consuming. Where before Saul poured all his desperation into the kiss, the beast took and kept on taking, devouring everything that he was until all that was left was a whimpering shell of a man. Then the beast gave and kept on giving, filling him with lust, strength, and love until he thought he would burst with it. Then it started all over, shattering him completely before rebuilding him even stronger.

There is mystery and suspense that will have you holding your breath in fear of who will come out alive and in one piece. There is a lot of misunderstandings and lack of communication between Saul and Javi. They have been consumed by protecting the other and become so wrapped up in doing the right thing they miss so much of what should have been so plain to see. Thankfully, Kyle does see and is determined to set things right between them.

One of the things Kyle needs out of the relationship is a sexual and intimate connection. Saul and Javi just had sex for the first time in seven years right before they meet Kyle. I admit I felt a little cheated by not being able to experience that monumental moment with them. A lot of their interaction was off page leaving it to your imagination. Not all of their moments are off page and the ones that we do get to experience are H.O.T. and even though it’s winter. You may have to get out the fan.

The Protector, like the first two books in this series, is a story of strength, perseverance, and love. These amazing characters selflessly give so much of themselves to the person or people they love, supporting each other, caring for each other, and loving each other so much that they are always in tune with the other. Anticipating each other’s wants and desires is something they all strive for and it is a beautiful thing.

This is a great story that I would highly recommend and even if you don’t like the aspect of a threesome, the author handles this cleverly and without jealously or hurt feelings. If you don’t like BDSM in your stories, please don’t let that hold you back either. It is discussed but is not the focus nor is it played out in their interactions. The control and demands are obeyed mentally showing a much more powerful hold.

I think this book could easily be read as a standalone but it would make a lot more sense in some aspects if you knew the back-story. If you have an opportunity to read the first two I would definitely recommend them. This great series offers suspense, mystery, action-packed drama, beautiful relationships, and great sex. It has it all. The cast is made up of several men all damaged in some way and all looking for love. I can’t wait to see whose story is up next in the Sizzling Miami series.

Review: Wow…emotions much??

In this novella, we get a closer glimpse of the pain and agony George and Jesse were going through when Jesse’s wife was insisting on keeping them separated. The emotions were off the charts and so hard to read. It made me physically ache for them.

Kennedy’s pain from finally losing Jesse was bought more to life here too. She actually finds comfort and a good friend in Zac, Jesse’s brother and I really think he’s what helps her start healing.

We also got a closer look at Zac. He is awesome! He has absolutely no filter and pretty much says and does what he wants (which right now, and hopefully permanently, is Elliott). I absolutely love him and Elliott together – they balance each other well and maybe Zac will get Elliott back to life and get him to live a little more and once and for all protect him from his awful father.

All this book did is wet my appetite for book 4! I want it right now!

ISBN: 9781632161758

Product Link: http://www.dreamspinnerpress.com/store/product_info.php?products_id=6011

Review: This is my favorite story in this series because….well Gunny and Mac, that says it all, nothing to add. They’re hot and sexy as sin. They’re an established couple and retired marines.

This book starts with some sexy lovin’ but immediately changes into a surprising and hilarious visit from Mac’s parents (there might have been a stubborn vibrating dildo that refused to be turned off). I loved Mac’s mother and the easy acceptance she shows Gunny and Mac.

As a present for their honeymoon, Mac turns Gunny’s fantasy into a reality when he takes him for a visit to Guards of Folsom. Gunny likes to submit when he needs to clear his head and the visit is a huge turn on for both of them. We also get to catch up with the cast from the previous books and I enjoyed seeing the subs being their normal bratty selves.

Mac and Gunny are both alpha men, strong and courageous, dedicated and passionate. I LOVED how they couldn’t get enough of each other even though they’ve been together for 20+ years. They are the best example that gay men can love hard, fight hard, can definitely serve in the military, and are dependable people.

Let’s not forget the bit where they show that they can definitely fuck even harder because that was sexy as hell. They’re also not afraid to show their affection for one another and cuddle at every given opportunity.

I didn’t want this book to end because you know…Gunny & Mac. They’re the real deal and I want more. Definitely recommended, don’t lose the opportunity to get to know some seriously awesome men.

I can’t possibly guess what this meeting is about, as everything within his kingdom is running perfectly. I do know one thing, Ara loves to entertain and be entertained, so at least that’s something to look forward to. What I’m not looking forward to is having to see Nolan, Lord of District Four. We really don’t get along. Well, as for my children, when the Master is away, the boys will play. In fact, I insist on it.

Noel: I’ve just received my official brand, the insignia of the House of Théoden. Along with the brand comes a load of responsibilities I am to adhere to. Apparently, my new life involves being an enforcer. I’m to be trained by Marco, my eldest and most sadistic brother. I’m not looking forward to that, not one bit. At least tonight, I’ll get a reprieve. For tonight, we celebrate as only the House of Théoden can.

Warning: This serial contains strong adult content not meant for sensitive eyes.

Reviewer: KathyMac
fanart commanded nicholas bella araReview: I made it through Season 1 (Yay) with basically one thought. Give me more! If, by chance, you are reading this and have not read the first season, Chained in Darkness, I would stay, STOP, go back. It is imperative to read these in order so that you have the full understanding of what has taken place. Season 2, House of Théoden, starts with, Book 1, Commanded. One of the things I love about the author, Nicholas Bella, is each new installment starts off where the last one stopped. You are able to pick back up with no lost time or events. And, trust me…you don’t want to miss out on anything.

Noel has completed his embracing and has made Théoden very proud. However, the King has called a meeting of the Court, and Théoden will have to leave Noel in the care of his brothers. As the saying goes,” when the cat is away the mouse will play,” will certainly hold true as Bruce, Marco, and eventually Donovan show Noel new heights of pleasure he never knew existed.

“Do you want me to spank you some more?”
Shit, did I? I had to think about how I felt while he was spanking me. It didn’t help that he was still stroking my cock with expert fingers. He was breaking my concentration, but I didn’t want him to stop.
“Ow!”
“Answer me boy. I don’t have all day, and if you cum before I get my way, you’re going to pay.”
“Yes, Bruce…I want you to spank me again,” I said. I couldn’t hardly believe the words that were coming out of my mouth.

fanart commanded nicholas bellaEven though Noel is finally adjusting and accepting his position in the house, he still has a wee bit of his rebellious attitude that shines through. He loves pushing his boundaries and testing his limits with the brothers, and even Théoden. I love this about Noel. He knows what is expected, most of the time, yet challenges them when he doesn’t understand. But, he is learning, rather quickly, that pain also brings pleasure and contrary to what he wants everyone to believe, he loves it.

In Season 1, it was mostly about Noel, his training (Ha, that’s an understatement) and accepting his new life. In, Season 2, Commanded feels more about Théoden and that excites me. I can’t wait to learn everything there is about him. Of course, it’s too early to make the assessment that it’s all about Théoden but one can hope…right? Oh, how can I love someone so cruel and vicious? He is one sexy, hot-blooded, vampire!! **I just looked up the definition for understatement – Restraint in artistic expression. Trust me…Restraint is a foreign word in the House of Théoden. 

Season 2 also brings new characters. Ara, King, and the sire of Théoden, may pull rank as my new obsession. He is ruler over all of the Lords and he has called the Court to his home for a meeting. We meet the other Lords, as well, and even though it was brief, you do get an idea of the personalities involved. Jealousy rums rampant between some of the vampires and their skill will be tested to the limit.

However, the King has a plan, and it is going to take each one to pull it off. He puts a lot of trust and faith in Théoden because he is his favorite and most loyal son. But, don’t be fooled by Théoden’s place in the eye of the King. He demands respect and anything less will have you re-thinking your fuck-up.

**Théoden and Ara**
“This isn’t what we agreed upon, I pointed out.
“Times change,” Ara continued. “And, as King, my Decree is whatever I make it.”
“So I see,” I snapped. Before I knew it, he had lifted me from the chair and had me by my throat, several inches off the floor. It was impressive, as I am taller than he is by five inches. His grip was tight and painful as he slowly crushed my larynx. I could do nothing but wait for him to release me on his own.
“I realize that I afford you more leeway than my other children because you are my favorite. But do not ever make the mistake that you are my equal!” With that, he slammed me back into the leather chair.

Whew, for a moment or two, I was afraid for Théoden. But, he is a smooth talker and as even the King referenced, he is the favorite. He doesn’t hold anything back either as he pleasures his King. They both take and receive from each other and finding their release is a very H.O.T. scene.fanart nicholas bella bruce DC

The trip was not all fun and games as the King has a very important plan and mission to expedite. He expects results and I have no reservations that Théoden will deliver results and possibly a very sexy 2-legged creature who may or may not run through the woods on 4 legs. This is speculation and

I cannot wait to see what happens next.
Nicholas Bella continues to deliver a thrill seeking, sexy, and dangerous continuation into a world we have barely touched the surface in. His descriptive narrative and no holds barred dialogue holds me captive from start to finish. With the new season ahead I, no doubt, will be swept along at a face pace hanging onto every morsel (Ugh, not a good word when discussing vampires) that the author exudes with his creativity.

Reviewer: Leigh

Review: This little story is about how Trey and Lucien first meet and start a relationship. Lucien is a fan of Trey’s books and goes to a books signing. The attraction they feel for each other is there from the start. Trey is cautious and agrees to meet for coffee at his local coffee-house. From there things get wicked sexy when they get back to Trey’s home. There are minor BDSM themes in this book. But there is a definite kink factor that they both share that was pretty hot.

What I really liked about it was that Lucien took the time to learn the different needs Trey had. Because Trey is blind, he needed touch and voice to feel more comfortable with what was happening. Lucien was turned off that Trey was blind and didn’t really treat him any different.

I look forward t o reading more about Trey and Lucien. I liked both MCs and enjoyed this little story. The two of them are really hot together with a side of sweet.

Blurb: Can a new beginning be found in leather and chains?

Kai Smithson’s life changes dramatically with his first glimpse into the world of BDSM. Completely innocent, Kai can hardly believe his eyes, but he knows what he likes and apparently that’s hot, dominant men in leather. He isn’t sure if he’s a submissive because he doesn’t really know what that means, but the feelings he is experiencing are exciting and new.

Harry Croft, bar manager at The Underground BDSM Club, believes in insta-lust rather than love at first sight. And when he agrees to train Kai, the contract between them has one condition—no sex. But Kai has some very definite plans about losing his virginity and a piece of paper is not going to stand in his way. In his new friends at the club and at The Edge, Kai has a ready-made support group of subs that show him that the only rules in a D/s relationship are those he wants to make for himself.

The old saying that you can choose your friends but not your family is proved horribly true for Kai, as the mysteries of his past are revealed. As he and Harry start out on their journey together, they must contend with bullets as well as bondage, danger alongside domination, and it’s not easy to establish trust when the whole world is going to hell.

Reader Advisory: This book contains characters who have extremely prejudiced views and scenes referencing physical abuse.

Review: Kai is intrigued by the BDSM world upon his first glimpse. He’s also very much attracted to sexy bar manager Harry. Kai seemed liked a very sweet and innocent young man with a mischievous streak in him once he gained some confidence under Harry’s guidance along with help of the other subs. Harry was caring and loving of Kai as the story progressed.rougharoundtheedges_facebook

There were a few intense scenes concerning Kai’s uncle who seemed to hate him with a passion. Not to mention trying to get Kai’s inheritance but fails when he’s killed by some men who want the money and try to Harry hostage to get it.

Very interesting scenes of Harry training Kai in BDSM. Hot sex between the two added spice to this book. Great addition to the Tales from the Edge series.

Highly recommended.

It’s a new night and that means more of Théoden’s lessons, one of which I was still recuperating from. I was so out of control last night and if my current physical condition is any indicator, my brothers definitely had their way with me. As far as my relationship with Théoden goes, I can’t help but feel drawn to him. I feel as though he’s accepting me as I’m accepting him in some morbid way. I don’t know… maybe it’s because I know I don’t have any choices. There’s no way out for me. I’m his and we both know it. Maybe there’s still some fight left in me, some little nugget of Noel the man that hasn’t been consumed by Noel the vampire. One can hope.

Reviewer: KathyMac

Review: Acceptance, Book #6, in the Chained in Darkness series, and the final installment in Season 1, brings Noel full circle exposing him to many elements of his new life. He has been tortured, raped, humiliated, torn from limb to limb, and finally branded after a long journey of lessons that bring him front and center to, the ultimate goal, and acceptance. He has been accepted by Théoden, his Master, and Father, and by all of his brothers in the house, at last.

Leading up to this moment, Noel has been subjected to many horrendous acts. Some he didn’t understand, at the time, but were finally starting to make sense. As Théoden takes Noel out, once again, into the outskirts of town, he will learn some valuable lessons as to what it means to be a vampire. A vampire that is feared and above all, commands authority.

Noel tries hard to hold onto what little human compassion he has but to no avail. He understands what will happen by not completely accepting his role as a soldier in Théoden’s house. What seems to bother him and weighs heavily on him is the thrill he gets when hunting for blood, quenching his desires by other males and lusting heavily for them. As Théoden has told him many times, it is his nature, his true self, accept him, and revel in it.

The final lesson Noel will have will be one that diminishes his spirit. He must make amends with Jonah. He must accept him as his brother. He will share desires with him and vice versa. Trying to hold onto what little rebellion he has left, he outright defies this order. And, he pays dearly for this mistake. He has learned the error of his ways. To continue to defy Théoden, on anything, will only cause him to suffer. This is a fight he will not win.

He demanded a lot of me and I’d risen to the challenge fanart acceptance noel nick bella(1)each time, killing my victims, fucking them under duress and being debased by anyone he wanted to share me with. But taking the life of a child…once was more than enough to open my eyes. Then when he’s combined his other torture methods, well…let’s just say that I know my limits. I didn’t before, but now I do and he knows them, too.

As Season 1 comes to a close with Acceptance, you realize the potential for what still lies unanswered. The author has brilliantly, through 6 books, given us an inside look at the world and life that Noel, unbeknownst to him, at the time, found himself caught in. We have watched his struggle with guilt and uncertainty of his future. We stood on the sidelines as he was beaten to a pulp and tossed aside like yesterday’s garbage. Each time he miraculously fought back with abandon and won the respect of his brothers and most of all his Sire.

Nicholas Bella has held my attention throughout this entire series. There are still many things left to explore and I can’t wait to see what the next season will have. The author’s ingenuity speaks for itself with the world building he has outlined in this series. Each installment was executed effectively and efficiently giving us an inside seat to an arena full of sex, desire, greed, pain, and ultimately power.

What Noel will have to do with the power he now holds, I can only guess, but I can’t wait to see where the author takes us next. Until Season 2…Thank you Nicholas for one hell of a ride.

Reviewer: Leigh

Review: This book is part of a series and should be read in order.

Jake has seen his friends and fellow Doms from the BDSM club Indiscreet find love with their subs. Now Jake wants the same thing. He has decided to ask the Sub Club to help him find the perfect sub for him. But before any plans can be put into play, he meets Davey. Davey tries to pickpocket Jake, but he is not very good at it. Once Jake hears Davey’s story he thinks he has found the perfect partner for himself.

Davey has never had the best in life experiences. He was a ward of the state going from foster home to group homes. Because he was small, he took the brunt of the bullying and physical abuse. But he still managed to make himself into an amazing paralegal. However due to circumstances he is now down on his luck with only twenty dollars to his name.

When he is caught by Jake, he spills his whole story out to avoid being turned into the cops. When Jake makes him an offer, that is both professional and personal, Davey takes a risk and accepts.

I liked Jake and Davey. Jake is a lawyer and knows how the world works, but still is looking for someone to love and take care of. Davey has had years of abuse behind him and never had a friend or a relationship. Davey pushes all of Jakes buttons, but Davey has big doubts about the BDSM lifestyle, as the idea of beatings and pain do not do it for him. The biggest issue the two face, is not falling in love but trust, of both each other and themselves.

This book was a little different from the others in series. This was a slow build to the more intimate aspects of their relationship. They actually start building and meshing their lives together before they even get to the sex. They start working and living together right away, and Jake takes Davey to the club to get to know everyone and learn about BDSM before anything happens in the bedroom. Jake gives Davey friends and people to talk to about what is going on. There are some conflicts and some misunderstanding but with help from their friends, they are able to work out what they need to.

This was a great addition to the series. I liked the different route it took from most of the other books in the series. But in the end, there is another happy and committed D/s couple. I look forward to more from the Sub Club and their Doms.

Blurb: Most people would consider near perfect recall, an ability to crunch numbers that rivals a computer’s, and an uncanny knack for predicting the stock market to be remarkable gifts.

But for Kyle, those abilities also curse him to recall every moment of his horrible, abusive past. Searching for an escape, he takes his therapist’s advice and leaves his finance job behind for a weeklong camping trip on a remote lake in Vermont. He’s not sure how a week in seclusion with nothing but his own thoughts for company will be the reprieve he needs.

Then he stumbles across a man engaged in a pagan ritual and is drawn into mysteries he never dreamed existed, and realizes nature is more distracting than he thought.

Review: Kyle has been hurt and abused a good part of his life, first by his family and then a former lover. Even with his incredible mind, he has issues left over from trauma he has suffered. On the advice of his shrink, Kyle has taken a vacation to a campground in Vermont. After his GPS sends in through the no longer used back way, Kyle comes across a naked man on a picnic table. After a flash of lighting, the man is gone. But a bound has already started.

This story packs a lot into a little package and I liked it. The author was able to get in the true hell Kyle’s life was a few sentences. I got a feel for Kyle right from the start. He is a wounded young man, who has managed to survive and make a living for himself even with the issues he has. The man he meets feels a need in Kyle and makes him happy and most of all feel safe.

I have never read this author before, but after this, I think I will be checking more of their work.

Blurb: In an alternate universe, the ancient concept of a slave class continues to exist. While a few countries have finally ended the brutal practice, the United States isn’t one of them. Once born a slave, one remains a slave, with only a few laws for protection against the whims of a cruel master.

Eighteen-year-old Oliver is a newly-minted pleasure slave. Trained to be a living sex toy, he has been sold to a wealthy widower. Being gay, Oliver has high hopes he will enjoy his new life. Unfortunately, his master has a sadistic streak and treats him like an object. Oliver has no choice but to endure and make the best of his lot.

Ben has reluctantly come home to help his father temporarily with the family business. He’s surprised to learn his father has bought a beautiful young slave boy to warm his bed. He doesn’t approve of slavery and is disconcerted by his attraction to the boy. Oliver is equally wary of Ben’s kindness and appeal. No other free person has ever treated him with such care.

There can never be anything between them, however, so they fight their growing desire. But despite their resolve, Oliver and Ben grow closer, tumbling into a clandestine affair. In a world in which slaves have no choice and falling in love with a freeman is the stuff of movies, they risk everything to be together.

Reader discretion is advised: slavery is inherently nonconsensual and this story contains MM sex scenes, as well as scenes of violence, that some readers may find objectionable and upsetting.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: While this was a very well written book I did find the scenes with so the so-called “Master” quite horrifying at times. The Master is a cruel man and enjoys being that way as far as I could tell. I wholeheartedly don’t agree with slavery in any way shape or form. So I was surprised by this story, as I didn’t read the blurb first before deciding to review it.

Oliver is a born slave bought by his first master. At first things are fine until the master punishes another slave for the dent in his car that the slave didn’t cause. I thought that was very unfair to punish someone for something they didn’t do. When Ben, the masters son, comes home, Oliver and Ben are attracted to each other but that’s dangerous for them both. I wish Oliver had belonged to Ben and not hi cruel father.

It was an o.k. read with scenes of nonconsensual or rape as I would call it, slave or not, scenes with the Master as well as tender moments between Ben and Oliver.

I would recommend reader caution with this book if you don’t normally read stories where slavery is in them.
