Review: Cowboys Mine

Cowboys Mine
Cowboys Mine by Stacey Espino

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This one is a hard one for me to review since it's not my normal type of read, but it was the "Menage Book of the Month" read on my group, and I really wanted to give it a go.

It was a good book for the New Adult (NA) genre. A slight step above YA. It was tender and sweet, and surprising in some parts.

I'm used to reading BDSM novels, more along the lines of dark, taboo, and non-con. So in fairness to the author, I will not make those comparisons.

Cowboys Mine is a story about twins, Colt and North, the boys next door, who love and protect the innocent girl next door, Eva. They've known each other all their lives. Eva being 4 years younger than the boys, was always watched over by them, she was the one bright spot in their otherwise not so perfect lives. Most times Eva didn't mind their protectiveness, but she's 22 now and all grown up and ready to show them and her dad that she's ready to take on a more adult role.

She decides to go in to the city for the big fair where she is going to show her prize cows. But Colt and North go behind her back and talk to her father, it's just not safe for a girl like Eva to go alone. Her father agrees and much to Eva's displeasure, the twins will be with her for the entire time. But she loves them, and soon her anger is forgotten and they are just Colt, North, and Eva.

A lot of things happen on this trip, that lead the 3 to the conclusion that they love each other in a much different way, and the heat level does pick up quite a bit.

Will Eva choose Colt or North in the end? Will her parents accept her new relationship?

If you enjoy young love, a little heartbreak, and a lot of chivalrous sexy cowboys, and some sexy lovin' between the girl/boys next door, then Cowboys Mine is a must read.

Review: Slave World 2: The Ties That Bind

Slave World 2: The Ties That Bind
Slave World 2: The Ties That Bind by Johnny Stone

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Okay. Catching my breath! That. Was. Excellent!! Johnny Stone took the story of his first book in the Slave World trilogy so much further in this sequel, Slave World: The Ties That Bind, than I thought was possible.

This is a Science Fiction based story with elements of BDSM incorporated throughout.

Margo, as we know from book 1 of this story, is an anthropomorphic female. She was a woman that was enslaved and taken to Slave World where her DNA was altered along with her appearance. She now has the perfect body, the perfect face, perfect everything. She is given perfection, but at the same time has had everything taken from her.

Nathan, the love of Margo's life. The man she wants most in the world to be her Master. To use her as the submissive slave that she is. Nathan doesn't want to be that in her life. But he does try, for her. Because he loves her.

As Nathan and Margo are leaving the Slave World Ranch in search of Margo's ship that was stolen from her when she was kidnapped, even more treachery is afoot, and they are forcibly separated. I felt so much sadness for them. For Margo who lived and breathed for Nathan and for Nathan who wanted this woman in any and all ways. Again, the cruel hand of fate is not kind to Margo, which seems to be the story of her existence. She is again kidnapped and held against her will by someone that is even more evil and vile than Master Michael was in the first book.

But Margo has a very deep and dark secret, and it's this secret that she calls on in the worst of times. The secret within her that takes over and helps her survive. And I mean this in the literal sense of the word!

We get to meet new characters like, Sergeant Major James Wroth and Private Sandra "Snake" Fullerton, a.k.a. "Sandy". My two favorite fun characters! Wroth is a sexy and funny man, mostly sexy because he's funny! Sandy is a tough but broken woman who has demons of her own, but still finds time to throw some snarkiness right back at the man she loves to hate. When these two get together they are like dynamite with a very short, lit fuse. Anyone standing close is sure to feel the burn of sexual heat coming from these two. But they also work well together on this very important mission. I promise you'll fall in love with Wroth and his many "Wrothisms"! You'll also fall in love with how he and Sandy fall in love with each other.

And Cherise... sweet Cherise. She is Margo's caretaker for a while and then her friend. She is a sweet and kind self-aware AI, which can be a dangerous combination, but you come to believe that she's so much more than that.

There are other very interesting characters some you'll remember from the first Slave World, like Donna, Cirus, Ashley, and Donovan. There are some new and intriguing characters, and some will come as a surprise. There are other worlds, one, Eden, is full self-aware AI.

I absolutely, love, love, LOVED this book! It's a non-stop, can't put it down even if I wanted to, book. The characters are well written, the world building is so in-depth that you'll actually be able to visualize it as you read the words.

I can't go to much further in-depth in my review without giving away plot spoilers. This is one that you have to read for yourself to appreciate. And ohhh the best thing about the end of this story? It leaves you wanting MORE! And there is more to come in Slave World 3 which will conclude this trilogy.

Reading Slave World, the first book is a must before reading this sequel to get the background history on main characters in this carefully crafted world of extraordinary characters.

This book is another solid 5 star read for me!

Solid 5 stars!

Excerpt Excerpt Excerpt

I closed my eyes and tilted my head back, letting the hot jet of water beat against my face. God it felt good, the tension just seemed to flow out of me in a wave of relief down the drain. The multiple smaller jets oriented around the shower cubicle followed suit, pelting my body with a soapy mist. It had a neutral smell to it though – very mannish – it wasn’t even close to my normal fragrance. No big deal, I’ll just reprogram it later with something a bit more female friendly, something light and flowery. I’m sure Nathan will love that.

Nathan… I was going to have to do some serious butt kissing to make up for that outburst. I still don’t know what happened, one minute I was happy as hell to be flying again, looking forward to getting laid, and the next I was back in the cockpit of my Hornet 3 Interceptor evading fire. Things really got ugly after I returned to reality; I can’t believe I snapped at him like that.

The main jet of water dropped suddenly and I opened my eyes only to receive a blast in the face as it switched directions again, spraying up and over my head. I shrieked, covering my face with my hands when the other jets went crazy, attacking me. The main jet returned to a normal flow just as unexpectedly, and I stepped to the side eyeing it warily from between my fingers. “Piece of crap,” I muttered. We must have just cleared Slave World’s atmosphere and entered open space, and it always took a few moments for the artificial gravity to kick in and get the thing right again. Water on board ship was one thing that still never acted quite right; it would do strange things at times, moving this way or that, not sure which way to go. I seemed to have forgotten that little piece of information during my extended planet-side vacation.

Now that’s over… I took my place in the middle of the shower cubicle again, letting the steamy water blast my skin back into a rosy glow while I soaped up. It was therapeutic for me in a way, lathering up my tail, before moving on to my shoulder-length mane. After that, came my wonderful ears. I always washed in the same order, always. Not sure why, other than I did, like a simplistic ritual of compulsive leisure. And of course, once the more mundane parts were done it allowed me to move on to other areas, the parts I enjoyed washing more thoroughly than they really need most times. Since the first time I discovered sex as a young woman, I’d loved playing with myself, but after becoming a pony… My skin felt so soft and silky now, just like a baby’s butt, but everywhere. I’ll admit that enhanced collagen levels were an added bonus from my augmentation that I didn’t mind in the least.

Gentle, plump breast were the first to fall prey to my roving hands, and I pushed them together, enhancing my generous cleavage even more, while thinking about the last time Nathan tit fucked me. His dark pink cockhead thrusting up between them… his hand on my head, a fistful of hair, pulling my head forward… I opened my mouth… the warm splash of Master’s cum dribbling down my chin… I’d never been tit fucked before coming to Slave World – having a small chest kind of puts a damper on things like that.

The more I washed, with my hands gliding over flushed, slippery skin, the more I realized just how horny I was. My hunger for Nathan hadn’t gone away in the least with all the recent excitement, if anything, it had grown stronger. My nipples felt bloated with sensitivity, no different than my swollen clit. I gasped with an erotic shudder, as I leaned back against the shower wall, one leg cocked up and a hand between them. My pussy was in my palm, massaging my clit, seconds away from cumming on the two fingers that were knuckle deep within it. I was playing with myself again and didn’t even realize it.

I quickly pulled them out, nervously looking around, and took a deep breath trying to calm down while I finished rinsing. Good luck with that; my heart was pounding and my body felt like it was on fire. It didn’t take long; I was in a hurry, and I silently hoped Nathan wasn’t already in the bedroom waiting on me.

The dryer came next, buffeting me with warm gusts of air, and I ran my hands through my hair and tail to help the process along. I did sneak one last exploratory finger through my slit, smiling at how slick I still was. The shimmering finger vanished in my mouth with a heavenly moan. Mmmm… Sticky sweet sex candy, another wonderful result of my augmentation. Is it wrong to enjoy the taste of yourself? If it is, then I never want to be right.

A Wolf's DowryA Wolf's Dowry by Johnny Stone
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Holy Red Riding Hood, Wolf Man!

That was one HAWT read! I don't even know what else to say about it! I was with the author daily on this book (and Slave World: The Ties That Bind) listening to the changes that took place as the book took shape. Reading as He wrote it, bouncing ideas back and forth, watching it morph into something incredible. But to sit and read it in its completed format, start to finish after all the changes were complete... there are no words!

Johnny Stone has a fantastic imagination and He put it to good use with this book.

It's a story of Paula Redding, a Homicide Detective with a secret, a *big* secret. She's a werewolf and there's an Alpha Male in her territory and he's baiting her and she's more than ready to take that bait.

Duncan Patrick is that Alpha Male, and he's ready to add another bitch to his long line of females that he services in his territory. He baits her, leaving his scent for her to follow. And what a scent he has.

Add Martin "Marty" Jenks to the mix, Paula's human lover, the man she wants to marry and have a family with, and things start to get dicey for Paula.

Will she stay with her kind? Become the were-female bitch that Duncan commands that she be, or will her humanity, what's left of it, keep her from becoming the very thing she has sworn to protect the people of her territory from?

This is a must read, a quick and very, VERY hot read. Character development is dead on, and I was connected to them one by one. Losing a bit of my own humanity when the story turned very dark and sexual.

This book isn't for the faint of heart, it's dark, sexual, and violent in some parts. It's a wild ride and if you're looking for a quick PNRe to read during lunch, this is the perfect one for that... but beware, the sexuality and hotness factor of this book will have you wishing for a place to take a cold shower before heading back to work.

Solid 5 stars!

With that said and even though I was involved on a daily basis as this story developed, and was written by the author, I believe this to be a true, fair, objective and honest representation of my opinion of this book*


Here is an excerpt from A Wolf's Dowry:

Paula stared about in a daze one last time. Unbelievable… There was an Alpha Were marking women in her city, in her territory. That could only mean one thing- it was an invitation on his part. He was looking for a mate.

She glanced down at several of the sealed evidence bags on the hood of the victim’s car- one of them contained the shredded remains of a dark blue T-shirt. With a quick glance at both Jenks and the Sheriff’s men, Paula snatched it off the trunk, doing her best to shield it from stray eyes. A mile down the road she pulled over, eyeing it in the seat beside her. She licked her lips, chest heaving, unable to resist the urge any longer.

Paula tore the bag open with frantic haste, bringing the mangled shirt to her nose, drowning in its musky odor. She felt drunk, while tearing at the button fly of her jeans, rubbing the shirt across her cheek and neck. Anxious fingers dove beneath the hem of her panties, probing until they found the slick, engorged crack they sought. Her body convulsed with ragged gasps while greedy fingers attacked her clit. She could almost see him, like in her dreams, while dark and dangerous visions began to swirl and solidify in her mind. Just as in her dreams, she wanted him without reservations. She wanted things she never knew existed, as instinct coursed through her body, making it come alive in unimaginable ways. She wanted to dance to the tune of a mating Were for the first time in her life. She craved the experience the chase, before he slapped aside her resistance, proclaiming his dominance over her, taking her, fucking her like the beast she inherently was. Just the thought of being pinned helplessly beneath him…

Paula’s fingers moved faster, grinding almost painfully against her throbbing clit, while moans of frenzied pleasure rent the air-conditioned interior of her car. It wasn’t enough- she wanted more, she needed more, as her desires grew beyond the point of no return. Her hand eased over a gossamer-soft tuft of damp pubic hair, clutching tightly at gentle mound of her pussy with the palm of her hand. One finger moved deeper, pushing hungrily between silky lips. That was all it took.

Jolts of electric heat streaked through her body, followed by the trickling warmth of pungent fluid seeping between her fingers. She whined helplessly, unable to breath, pinching her thighs together in silent ecstasy, while biting at the shirt of a killer. The release left her shaking, with a glow in her cheeks after the tremors passed. She’d never felt anything so intense in her life, and that was just from his scent.

Paula had never found a man, if you could call an Alpha Were that, that she’d wanted to share herself so desperately with, so completely, so uninhibited as she did right now sitting in her car on a backwoods, gravel road. Not even Jenks, the man she loved and fully intended to marry one day, had ever made her feel so liberated during sex. All her plans, all her dreams of a family with him seemed inconsequential right now, vanishing in the blink of an eye, drowned beneath primal desires that she’d repressed her entire life.

“This can’t be happening,” Paula breathed heavily, looking around nervously, before stuffing the shirt shamefully back into the evidence bag. She was a Werewolf, and in heat, and the Alpha knew it- that’s why he’d come looking for her- or was there another female infringing on her territory again that she didn’t know about? The thought alone that some skanky, wandering bitch was trying to steal him away almost brought on a violent change.

The call of her blood couldn’t be ignored this time- not any longer. If she didn’t answer his summons another bitch would, or he would move on in search of another, and Paula wasn’t about to let that happen. She was going to mate, soon, and her life would change forever. It was inevitable at this point, and there was no way to avoid it- Paula didn’t want to avoid it. Maybe I am nothing more than an animal pretending to be human, she mused glumly, starting her car.

Move the Sun (Signal Bend, #1)Move the Sun by Susan Fanetti
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Wow. That is my first thought as I finished the book! Just. Wow.

An excellent story of love, hot sex, and intrigue! What a perfect combination!

This story was so much more than just another MC (motorcycle club) book. The characters come to life, you feel them, you want them to be happy, and the story unfolds perfectly and keeps you wondering what's going to happen next.

The unique thing about this book was the way the author would start a chapter by going back into the past of Lilli, the female lead. Starting when she was just 10 and her mother committed suicide. Then other chapters started out the same, moving back to something significant in Lilli's life that would tie in to the chapter. It may sound confusing, but trust me, it worked. And quite well!

The book kept me guessing as to who Lilli was and what she was doing in Signal Bend. I liked that, it kept me engaged and I could *not* put this book down!

I fell in love with Isaac he was a strong alpha male, but was also very kind and considerate to Lilli. They both knew there was *something* special about the other one. I especially liked the fact that the author didn't tear them apart. Lilli thought about it, but she knew she wanted Isaac as much as he wanted her. She knew he was the missing piece to the puzzle that was her life.

There was so much emotion in this book. From the incredibly hot sex to the tender holding of Lilli's hand while she was in a coma.

This book just *worked* from start to finish! I'm so looking forward to starting book 2!

This was a 5 star read for me!

Dark, Twisted, & Brutal

Forced SubmissionForced Submission by Claire Thompson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

**Warning Extremely Dark, Non-Con, Contains possible spoilers**

This was a dark read, taking a woman down a very dark path of pain, humiliation, and brainwashing and it's gut-wrenching.

Mia accepts a job with the very handsome, very rich Ellis L. Hughes and she's very excited to start her new life. She gets a new life alright, but the job is bogus, her "job" is to become the perfect submissive for a cruel and sadistic Ellis and her training starts within the hour of walking in the door to start her new job.

Ellis chose Mia out of over 20 applicants, not because she was his perfect woman, but because she had no family, no boyfriend, and no kids. No one to miss her or come looking for her. She's a little overweight, no worries, he has the perfect diet plan for that.

He takes everything away from her then does everything to break her, but there is still a resistance in her that he vows to break. And he does. It's when Ellis cuts Mia's beautiful hair off and shaves her head. The moment I knew what was coming I had to actually put the book down and walk away. The author's description of this was heartbreaking. When I came back and started reading again, I really didn't think he would do it. He seemed to waver, but then it became about power and control and he *knew* he had to go through with it. It was the obsessive need for total power and control over another living person that seems to drive Ellis, and above all the other sadistic things he did to Mia, this was the one thing that fractured her and completely broke her.

She lives a harrowing "life" as Ellis' slave. She is forced to sleep in a cage at night beside his bed, most times bound while inside the cage. She is denied food and water on a whim, and when he does give her food, it is usually only a few bites a day and only after she has pleased him. She is only fed from his hand while she kneels next to him. There is also a punishment cage in a dark closet for those times when she *doesn't* please him. There is water torture, breath play, anal, and any sadistic "toy" you can think of on a regular, if not daily basis, including stocks that she is locked into for hours at a time.

This book is not for the faint of heart. It's dark, twisted, and brutal. But I will say that there are some pretty good twists that will make you want to keep turning the pages faster and faster in a race to the finish. I read this book in one day, just couldn't put it down.

Claire Thompson is quickly becoming my "go to author" when I need that dark, non-con read.

Solid 4 star read.
