Title: UnPrison Series: N/A Author: Yamila Abraham Genre: Contemporary Length: Novella (105 Pages) Publisher: Yaoi Press (November 18, 2014) Heat Level: Explicit Heart Rating: ♥♥♥3Hearts Blurb: A scrawny Princeton freshman gets sent to prison where he becomes the property of a powerful yet compassionate inmate. For adults only. Product Link: http://www.amazon.com/UnPrison-Yamila-Abraham-ebook/dp/B00PU46ICA Reviewer: Lisa Review: Damn this was a hard book but it was a good read. It also tells me that I never want to see the inside of a prison. Ryan got busted for drugs and sentenced to over twenty years in a medium security prison. Knowing what happens in prison has in frightened and not sure what to do.
With the help of an inmate on his first hour there, he was given to an inmate that had been in for more than twenty years already. At first, he wasn’t so sure about Harrison, but after a while he realized he was in love. It is a hard life with lots of danger, excitement, fear, anger, pain and just a bizarre time all the way around. It would seem Harrison felt the same way about the young kid that has been shown to him.
I am not really sure how to give you a good review without telling the story so I will leave it at that. It was a damn good story that I wished many of the young would read. To see what they really do go through inside the joint and how to make it through it all. I had a blast reading this and felt bad for those who are in similar situations even though they did the crime.
It is a horrible place to be and for this young boy, his life is forever changed. I would recommend reading it.

Title: Hunted By the Pack Series: Alaskan Were Author: Yamila Abraham Genre: Paranormal Length: Novella (55Pages) Publisher: Yaoi Press (February 1, 2015) Heat Level: Moderate Heart Rating: ♥♥♥2.5 to 3 Hearts Blurb: After a life-shattering betrayal, Kevin opts out of human society to live on his own in the Alaskan wilderness. He soon finds that he’s not alone in those isolated woods. Someone, or something, is beckoning him to go further into the wilds. Kevin knows that this creature wants him for his mate. Does he dare answer the call?
Review: This was a pretty cute story but a bit bizarre. It was missing something that would make it perfect. It was a good start though. In fact, it was going good till the actual mating part, and in which case it is told to fast. I would have loved it if it had been not only spaced out but more detail put in to it. When most matings happen, there is at least some idea that the other person is actually into men. With this one, that was not the case. It just doesn’t come off as the way it should have.
Kevin and Lisa had been married for some time and were expecting their first child. That is until his best friend informed him, that Lisa had been cheating on him. Come to find out that the child was not his. His heart was hurt, they had been high school sweethearts, and now they were nothing.
He decides to leave it all behind and go to Alaska. He had inherited a cabin in the middle of the boondocks Alaska. A little rough but he could make it ago. That is until the wolves show up. He was given a chance mate or die.
I can see the option but none of it was believable. It was a good story but missing parts and not enough details to give it a really good rating. I would recommend reading it.
It has a good chance at being something excellent, but I would recommend adding to the story. It left me hanging at the end. I gave it a two point five to a three because in fact it has a great start to a good book, but to me was not what I expected. I did have a blast reading it though.

Title: Vanquished Thief Series: Vanquished #3 Author: Yamila Abraham Genre: Yaoi / BDSM (Hentai) Length: Novella (99 pages) ASIN: B00JJVMAW2 (ISBN-13: 9781311055651) Publisher: Yaoi Press (April 7th, 2014)
Heat Level: Explicit
Heart Rating: ♥♥♥2.5~3 Hearts Reviewer: Thommie Blurb: A waifish mortal thief is caught stealing in Darkhelm’s castle, and is only spared execution because his lovely body can be used for better things.
The Dragon King Caine doubts that such an unskilled mortal thief could have truly breached the underworld. He wishes to know what this creature really is, and what he wants with their beautiful slave Jonah. He intends to subject the pretty waif to some of their more exquisite tortures until he gets an answer.
The frightening truth behind the thief’s identity may place the mighty King Caine in a submissive position for the first time ever! An erotic BDSM medieval fantasy with a romantic twist! Purchase Link: http://www.amazon.com/Vanquished-Thief-Medieval-Gay-BDSMErotica-ebook/dp/B00JJVMAW2 Review: Book three in the Vanquished series comes and treats us to a surprising twist. We’ve been used to mortals being in the mercy of demons, Princes and Kings being vanquished by the sublime torments of extreme pleasure, but this time around, the author has granted us with yet another being extraordinaire.
There is not much to say about this new addition to the series. The sexual games work in the same path though there are new kinks introduced. The cruelty of the main characters is always followed by their love and nurturing nature as weird as it may seem for demons to behave this way. The main change came with Jonah’s new role. Though he remains a very wanton Uke, he took on a leading role in the previous book, which turned into full sadistic Seme into this one for a short spell. This new version of Jonah was definitely not met favourably from me.
So, in this book, we have a thief breaking and entering King Cain’s realm without anyone noticing him. How very weird this was in itself, but when the thief is caught, things become weirder still. It seems as if this thief is seeking punishment, instead of avoiding it… He seems to be quite cocky too and secure in some hidden knowledge. Could it be that this particular thief is much, much more than he seems?
I have made up my mind and my favourite character in this series is definitely Randell. He is the perfect sadist for my poor dark heart and he manages to make me smile each and every time I read another installment. King Caine is the sweet sort. No matter how hard he tries to be severe and cruel, deep inside his heart he’s a damned softie; there’s no other explanation for his behaviour. I would have love to see him in a vulnerable position and damn if this wasn’t the perfect opportunity to do so, but I guess the author wanted her Seme unspoiled. In any case, this new twist in the plot may very well produce interesting and enticing future installments.

An erotic medieval fantasy with a romantic twist! Purchase Link: http://www.amazon.com/Vanquished-Knight-Medieval-Gay-BDSMErotica-ebook/dp/B00IISN850 Review: Okay, I had tremendous fun and laughed my head off with this little book. It seriously made me weep with the dialogue and Jonah’s lines. The best part of it was the “eeee” screeching and the “aaaeeiiii” that had me almost to my knees in surrender. I’m taking this book to be a bit in the comedy side, because frankly there is no other way to read it. It was hilarious as hell and even when in the most erotic scene that demanded all my attention and seriousness I couldn’t stop laughing. Jonah was simply irresistible when it came to that.
So, setting: medieval…? Hmmm… It is the year 8 thousand plus somewhere, in an alternate world where there are gods and demons and gods rule the above world while demons rule the Underworld. The mortal’s god is kind of like the Christian one. I mean, who has Knights/soldiers and demands them to be chaste? The hell is that all about? No touching, no getting off and of course no intercourse…especially any kinky stuff. That is punishable with death.
The Underworld though, King Caine’s domain. Oh Hell, I wanna go offer myself there for eternity. Perverse, cruel, sublime. King Caine is freaking awesome. I want to worship him forever awesome, and if you take a look at that exquisite cover, he is drool-worthy. His Councillor Randell follows right after him in hotness level and dear Lord they have such depraved longings. Yes, I’m still grinning from ear to ear. Cheshire cat has nothing on me.
The story is simple enough. The above world is plagued with evil sky-rocks that turn men into animals (not literally you wicked minds) and the King has no other way to save his people but to ask for the help of the demon King. In return King Caine may ask whatever he wants, no matter how cruel it may be. Deal made and Caine leads his soldiers to remove the wicked rock. On his way though he sets his eyes upon this gorgeous young soldier, who seems to be the only one not afraid or disgusted by him. Yup, Caine’s got his sacrifice all right.
I liked the plot, I liked the way the story spun and made all parties wait and get frustrated. I even liked the fact that cruel demonic all-feared Caine was so gentle (not literally again) and sweet with Jonah, the Knight. I liked how Randell seemed to be the exact opposite of Caine. I loved the ménage. Oh yeah, I definitely loved that. What weirded me out a bit and was somehow a turn off was Jonah’s immediate compliance. He not only surrendered to two fearsome demons with, let me tell you, huge, massive, gargantuan appendages, but he went from chaste knight to whorish slut in the blink of an eye. What was up with that? I mean some sort of… ah I don’t know, uhm pain? Suffering? Something was call for there, just not that…
Okay, perhaps I’m being weird, after all Jonah said so himself that he didn’t like the war and fighting in the above world, but most of all he didn’t like to be made feel as if he was evil for merely thinking kinky stuff. So he was very relieved to be claimed by Caine. But it was a bit too easy, and oh my freaking God how hilarious his lines. I can’t stop thinking of it. He was made to speak about how it felt to be penetrated and all that, so you can imagine how that went. Needless to say that I pictured and heard it all in my head in Japanese language and tone of voice. Just imagine it for a moment: “eeee, itai, itai, yada, yamero kudasai”. No, I’m not a nerd… I think.
So anyway, funny book, funny story. The erotic blended with hilarity and the story was laden with that weird kind of tender, the tender cruel masters give. It was a bit romantic, a bit sweet even at points. I wished it was darker and a bit more blood and gore – it had demons of course I wanted blood – but overall I had a splendid time reading it. If that’s what you looking for, I suggest you give it a try.
Disclaimer: I find Yaoi a blend of erotica and comedy, so my view of it might be quite different from that of hardcore Yaoi readers.
