Forced Awakening (Forced, Fucked, and Bred Trilogy, #1)

This book is a quick read and the first in the trilogy. This book is really nothing but sex. Sophia is captured by a werewolf who must have a human to mate with. She knew she was never to go near the woods but no one ever told her why. In fact this book leaves you with far more questions then answers. What is in the forest? There seem to be several paranormal creatures that make an appearance. What happens to the other females that have been captured? You know there are others or there wouldn't be the warning about the woods. If human females are needed to breed and regain their strength why is Rylan the only wolf around when she is taken?
This might have been a very good book if it had been developed into a full novel. Reading a short story that leaves you with a lot of questions and ends abruptly is frustrating. I need to be encouraged to buy book two, I need to be left hanging and wanting more which this book didn't do.
 If you jut want to read about sex, then read the book, if you are looking for a plot...skip this one buy 

Kiss of Pride by Sandra Hill

I have always loved Sandra Hill's Viking books and these are no different. Vikar and his six brothers are as bad as vikings come each on committing one of the seven deadly sins. When God decides to rid the world of vikings the Archangel Michael steps in and intercedes on their behalf. In doing so we now have Vangels which are vampires who are trying to earn their angel wings, something that is easier said then done for each time they commit a sin years are added to their penance. The job of the Vangels is to try and stop the Lucipers from claiming a soul before it has a chance to repent for its misdeeds.
All is going well for the Vangels until Alex, a reporter who is looking for a story walks into Vikers life. Can he save her from the sin she is thinking about committing without committing more on his own?

This book is written in the traditional Sandra Hill fashion with all the humor you have come to expect in her writing. I found myself chuckling several times as a thousand year old viking had to deal with a modern woman. I often couldn't put this book down staying up late just to finish it.

Anchored (Belonging, #1) Rachel Haimowitz

I really enjoyed this book even though I thought at times Daniel was more timid then he needed to be and that Carl should ask a question or two.
Daniel is a popular anchor at a local TV station and is shocked to find out that he has been recently purchased by not only a man but a rival anchor. Daniel will continue to work at the station but his home is now with Carl. The problem is Daniel has problems submitting to Carl's demands even though they are very few. This failure has him sent to the basement where he will learn he is a slave and must do all that his master ask or face the consequences.
 Some people may be bothered by the beating and rape but Daniel is a slave. I didn't want to book to end and in a way would have liked to seen a little more of the evolving relationship with Carl and Daniel. All the same I say read this book.

The Surrogate by Ann Somerville

I would have given this five stars if the sequel was better written. The first book I fell in love with Jaime, his distance, pain and suffering was easily felt. I felt for Nikolas who was in love with someone he couldn't have yet determined to help Jaime at all cost.
Yes this book does have forced shows life inside the temple of the gods...but it was no where as bad as people had lead me to believe. I couldn't put this book down. Then I read book two and I just kept waiting for something to happen. Book one was full of drama and book two lacked it. I felt almost like a different person had written this that hadn't read the first book because honestly even the personalities changed from book one to book two. That in mind read book one....only read two if you really want to know what happens to Jaime. 

Neko P.L. Nunn

I actually liked this book. I wish there was a little more description in what the Neko looked like. First I thought of Avatar but then later in the book I thought the Neko looked like the cowardly lion.
This book contains forced sex and what some would consider bestiality. Since the Neko has cat like features including a tail and pointed along with a cats claws but the body of a human I'm not sure if the bestiality is when he is forced to have sex with a dog or is it when the humans have sex with him?
The Neko has been stolen from his tribe and sold into slavery. When the woman who has him finds him to be to much to handle she sells him to four deep woodsman who rape and torture the Neko. He is placed in a cage, treated like an animal, raped daily by both men and their dog. They find creative ways to torture him to pass the winter months. One evening a trapper stays the night. When the woodsmen plan on killing him for his furs the neko warns him allowing the trapper to get to safety. Knowing that the woodsmen will torture and maybe even kill the neko, the trapper comes back and rescues him. The trapper though is on the run from people who would like to see him dead. The Neko and the trapper form a deep friendship but can the little Neko move past what was done to him to find love in the arms of the trapper?

At Pipers Point by Ethan Day

After 10 years and a long court battle Cassidy Winters has returned to Piper’s Point to bury Sadie “don’t call me grandma” Hart. Cassidy hopes to keep a low profile but best laid plans and all of that go out the window when he meets Neil and takes him back to the house for some wild sex. When Cassidy rescues a small dog who needs vet attention his arrival back at Hart is quickly spread.

His arrival brings his old teen-age love Nate back to his doorstep whom for some reason he ask to move in on the first day never thinking that his current fling and his old boyfriend might have a problem with each other. Then is the arrival of best friends, Ollie and Spencer who became a couple after Cassidy broke up with each of them. As if all these men weren’t enough in the house Teddy, his latest Ex arrives at the door so of course Cassidy being the person he is allows him to stay also. Jealousy is a large part of the story as Nate, Teddy and Neil all vie for Cassidy’s attention.

I had a hard time getting into the book. This was a departure from the usual Romantic Comedy that Ethan normally writes, the characters while basically likeable didn’t bring you into the story as much as his characters normally do, perhaps because there were so many of them. I found Cassidy to be painfully naive never understanding why Nate may have a problem with the many ex’s showing up at Piper’s Point and Cassidy’s willingness to let them stay with him. I also had a problem with Nate’s hot and cold reaction with Cassidy, granted I didn’t expect them to pick up the relationship where it ended ten years ago but I needed more sexual tension. As it was it would be a heavy make out session with Nate suddenly pulling away saying “I can’t do this.”

If you have never read an Ethan Day book then by all means pick it up and give it a chance. If you have read some of his other better works pass this one by.

Beyond complicated

This is one of the first Mercy Celeste books I have read and I'm going to go buy more.
Liam has been doing everything for Kel including porn to make ends meet when child support was raised. During a movie he met Seth and they fell in love. But one tragic moment shatters Liam and causes him to walk away from the only man he ever loved. Imagine his surprise four years later when Seth walks back into his life in the form of Kelton's new boyfriend. The three men must learn to deal witht he past before any of them can have a future and when a big secret is revealed how will each man deal with the one thing that can change all their lives?

I was drawn into the book often staying up into the wee hours of the morning only because I didn't want to put it down. I grew to love Seth, Liam and Kelton....wanting a happy ending for each person. No one is perfect and each man has his own flaws that makes him just a little more human and each man has a secret that could affect the other.

The Land of Painted Caves

I waited so long for this book and....well half way through I was bored. I love Ayla and Jondalar, but the book is just way to descriptive. I really don;t need to know every kind of plant that grew int eh region and what they could do with them. This is a very large book and lets face it if the author did a little self editing the book would be tight and just as good. Sometimes i want to smack Ayla around because she just seems to naive at times, to open and trusting.

Really is you haven't read the other books you aren't going to be picking this one up and if you've gotten this far in the series then you're a fan then you're going to muddle through it.

Prince Miro's Submission (The Royal Captive #2) by Aphrodite Hunt


Prince Miro's Capture book 1

Prince Miro's Capture (The Royal Captive #1)

The biggest problem I had with this book is I was just really getting into it when it was over. You then have to go buy the second installment. Sometimes things weren't as clear as they could have been, like the fact he was wearing a breast plate and a loin cloth. Is this what everyone wears in the society? 
Miro is a captured Prince who deciders to submit to those that captured even though he knows he will be a sex slave. You would think he would have a little more resistance then he does in the book. It might have been better if he had fought a little when they were stringing him up to be raped.

Other then that, I did enjoy the book but be warned it does have what some would consider taboo, whipping and rape.
