Destined to Dominate (Captain's Duet Book 2)

Love conquers all…
The world doesn’t accept us, and people can be cruel. They tend to focus on the scars Captain earned in battle—but I see the man.
Every test we face only proves we are destined for each other.
Our brand of love is passionate and true, and we won’t let anything keep us apart.
Find out what happens when true love collides with selfless sacrifice.
Sparks will fly in the heartfelt conclusion
to Captain and Candy’s story.

Goodreads

3.5 rounded up

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

I loved the first book in the duet, so I was going crazy waiting for the send installment of Captain and Candy’s love story/HEA.

This picked up literally as Captain left Candy’s house when he decided not to collar her. He gets some advice from a good friend on what to do with his predicament…he loves her BUT is too old for her.

I enjoyed the dynamic of what Captain does to help guide Candy and help her grow as a submissive. I loved seeing her with a few training center dominants to help her realize 110% Captain is the man for her. I think this dynamic helped Captain also realize he needs the little minx in his life too.

The rest of the book is a lot of retelling of previous scenes we have already seen Candy and Captain in….dinner with Brie and Sir, re-training Mary, the Russian Rescue of Rytsar, etc so I felt that part of the story wasn’t much new information since we already KNEW/UNDERSTOOD how they were feeling in the main Brie storyline.

The end of the book I did enjoy because I think it helped Captain face his demons with his personal life too. He is completely happy with Candy and their life but sometimes you don’t even know you need something until it presents its self to you.

I am excited to see more back story of Sir, Rytsar, and Master Anderson in college. Those will be some fun reads I am sure…unless they show the scene with Mistress Clark and Rytsar….eeeek that could be sad to read.

#NewRelease #BDSM #Erotica #DualReview- Safe Haven, Book 1 of a Duet by Red Phoenix @redphoenix69

Safe Haven

Love has no limits…

At eighteen, I suffered a heartbreaking loss and began exploring my submissive side to escape the pain with kinky pleasure.

A chance meeting sets me on an exciting new path as a student of the Submissive Training Center. There I find Captain, a distinguished Dom I’ve totally fallen for—my safe haven.

But I have a problem.
Captain won’t collar me.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

People know me as Captain.

I’ve accepted my title as a war hero, but I’m still overwhelmed by guilt…until I meet her. Candy is like no other submissive I’ve ever met. In her eyes, I see the man I used to be.

She is everything I want, but I can never be what her young heart needs.

Therefore, I must protect her—at all costs.

*A sexy tale about the saving power of love from USA Today Bestselling Author Red Phoenix

Goodreads

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

GAH!!!  Candy and Captain’s Books!!  Seriously these two and their dynamic has me wondering how they came to be.  I mean YES their age difference was a big question for me but knowing them I knew there was a definitely underlying love so to see the beginning = melted heart!!

SO I absolutely love how this story is told.  We are seeing both Captain and Candy’s lives that lead them to the night of Candy’s auction.  We see the struggles and situations that make them who they are today.  We see the pain in loving someone and the pain in being hurt by love.   We SEE what makes them the perfect fit.

Candy is everything Captain needs.  She is the youthful and a carefree soul to help heal his battered mind, Body, and soul.  Captain is the perfect nurturer for Candy.  He is the person who will guide her heart and teach her to trust in herself again.

Seriously I could not put this book down.  I DEVOURED it in the quickest time.  I was so enthralled in THEM.  I was so dedicated to finding out how they came to be and what shaped them to be the people they are today.

I loved the Candy/Captain dynamic when I was reading about them in the main story. Their side characters were amazing for other characters in the story IE Mary.  But to get a book….scratch that….2 books all geared to them…..GAH!!  I am so excited!!!

I received this book for an honest review.

Oh my it’s Candy and Captain and the dynamic between these two was the amazing. Candy knows immediately that Captain is the one for her but Captain keeps pushing her away because of their age and he feels he is not good enough for her.

I enjoyed reading Captains back story even thought he went through so much it made him the mad he is. To see the soft sweet protective side he had even at a young age. He cared and held his mom and brother so close to his heart and through it all they were always there. I hope more of his past comes out in the second book.

When reading Candy’s story it had me choking up and then to find out about how she got her name. Then to see what she endured before meeting Brie broke my heart. When Candy falls she knows immediately and falls so hard.

I could not set this down even though I was at a convention and my BFF kept giving me a hard time for reading. I am so ready to see what is in store for us in the next book. Candy and Captain have stole my heart.

A few of my favorites.

“I must be dreaming. A handsome man in uniform is asking me to leave work on a date? Pinch me now.”

It seems I will never know the love of family or a good woman. The only people I can trust are my own men—they are my family now.

“What color for the collar?” “Pink. I’ll also need a gold chain leash with a black leather handle.” “Not pink to match the collar?” I chuckle. “The collar is for her to wear. The leash is for me to use—so, no pink.”

It seems my life is fated to reflect the sensual play I crave.
To enjoy the pleasure–I must face the pain.

Goodreads

I received this book from the authors for an honest review.

I have been waiting, as all the fans have, for the birth of baby……………*shakes finger* Did you think I would let that spoiler outta the bag?  That is a negative!!  Wanna know?  Then read the book!!

This book was a great jump back and forth in time from Brie’s POV.  We get to see scenes from Sir’s book and how she was feeling plus we get to see her thoughts about coupling with Sir annnnnd our favorite Russian….MMMM Rytsar.  I know I love seeing the dynamic of their friendship and *Wink* MORE.  The More is ALWAYS GOOD READING and Red didn’t let us down *Blushes*

WE get a lot more in this book too.  WE get to see a happy and in love Lea.  After EVERYTHING she went trough with Mrs. Clark I was so happy to see Love in the air for her.  Granted I had HOPED it would be with Rytsar but she is happy so I am good……Or is she?

Mary….Oh Mary….What is going on with you?  I never thought I would say this, but Mary REALLY DOES LOVE Brie and Lea.  After what she does in this book for the girls, I seriously hope she gets an HEA because she does deserve it.

Seeing scenes with Master Anderson and Tono are always great additions to any book of course. I love getting to see the old gang in any capacity.

Lilly, Oh friends she is still causing trouble for our couple.  Unfortunately, our couple doesn’t know her evil is still out there causing havoc on their lives.

More evil from the past in the form of Brie’s bully comes back into play.  I wonder what is going to happen with this story line because Brie is pretty shaken up with memories of her past with Darius.

This book does a great job setting up more plot for more books plus letting us reconnect with our old story lines and characters.  I love this series and stop whatever I am doing to sit and read.  Sir and Brie’s love story is truly EPIC like the Blurb suggests.  #CondorLove

Yes!!! I have been waiting for this book.  We have seen Brie grow from a young woman to a glowing mom to be to now seeing her become a mom.  I absolutely love the way this book takes us from present to past.

There were so many great things in this book.  WOW I love Brie’s imagination the scene Brie thought about to keep her mind off the labor pains was well yeah you will need to read that. The photo shoot was a great scene also I loved seeing pregnant Brie. The pranks Rytsar and Brie pull on Master Anderson I was giggling the entire time. Rytsar was amazing he is the best Dyadya ever.

It was great to see everyone from the training center again.  I have to say seeing Brie, Lea, Mary, and Autumn together and them having one of their girls night was great. Oh gosh Lea your crazy jokes just kill me oh heck you in general kill me. Everyone needs a friend like Lea. I have to say I go back and forth with disliking Mary to liking Mary and this was a like time.

I am so in love with this series and these people.  I cannot wait for more of Brie and Sir to see how their lives continue to grow and intertwine with all of their friends. No matter how far they go from one another they always end up back together for one reason or another even if it is just for a short time.

kristis review

Received a copy for a honest review

Oh my God!! 6 awesome stories set around one Hotel in Vegas. Someone please tell me this place and staff are real because as Tina Fey’s Liz Lemon would say “I want to go to there!”. The Nyte Resort is all about making your fantasies realized and boy do they!!
The stories all blend together into one amazing book. Before I start discussing the books make sure you have these 3 things handy; A fan, a cold drink, and a towel. Why you ask, because these stories are HOT!!!

Winner Takes All by Mari Carr
Carr continues with the Lewis family from her Big Easy series with Noah Lewis. Noah is a chef who is competing in a on air cooking competition and is one of the finalist along with Hollie Mills. It’s great how you can tell that Noah and Hollie are friends along with competitors and how they both during the course of the show fell for each other.
Having been put up in the same hotel room, unbeknownst to them, for having the same fantasy the decide to go with it and see it where it takes them. Where it takes them is into some HOT BDSM.
Who wins the show? Well they decide they need more than just one night? Ya gotta read to find out!!! Now, by my count we have one Lewis family member left, fingers crossed that Carr continues her Big Easy series!!

Stud Poker by Red Phoenix
Master Anderson, Boy just saying his name makes me hot!!
On his way to L.A. Be the new Headmaster at the Submissive training center, he stops for the night in Vegas at Nyte for what he is hoping a relaxing evening of no women.
He meets Shey Allen when his male masseuse is called away for the evening.
Who knew a card game could turn out so fun, Instead of money they bet questions or wants.
By the end of the story I’m wanting Shey to leave her job and family in Vegas to go with Master Anderson it L.A., that’s how awesome these two are from the start. They have such chemistry and Shey has absolute trust that he will give her what she needs for the night.
Master Anderson was always one of my favorite characters in Red’s Brie series and I so glad we get a taste of him here.
I’m saying taste because Red is naughty as always leaving me wanting MORE!!
Wild Card by Angel Payne
Wild Card is part of a Series that I have never read called The Wild Boys of Special Forces. That being said I wasn’t lost or anything.
Jen Thorne is at Nyte for her BFF’s wedding and who happens to be there but her hunky Scottish crush Sam Mackenna. Helloooooooooooo, did you hear me I said Scottish. I’m swooning before I even started because I know there’s gonna be two things: a sexy kilt scene and a even sexy accent!!
They decide on one night of fantasy together and boy do fantasies come true, for me that is be yep KILT SCENE!!!
These two are great and I love that we get to see them in their own environment after their one night.

Hard Hand by Sierra Cartwright
Avery Fisher is a shy sub who had never been brave enough to approach the Dom of her dreams Cole Stewart, but being at Nyte for her Aunt’s masquerade birthday party she feels brave behind her mask. What Avery do sent know is Cole would know who was mask or no mask.
Cole and Avery scene together for one night and boy is it a awesome night. He does everything in hopes that she’ll reveal herself to him.
With this story we also get to see more of the characters after their night at Nyte and it’s great.
Does Avery finally reveal her identity? You gotta read to find out!!!

Sin City Submission by Jenna Jacob
This story is part of one of my favorite series Doms of Genesis.
With Quinn and Ava we have a established relationship both business and pleasure.
The whole idea of their time at Nyte is to push their boundaries as they have become complacent in their roles as Master and submissive.
You can tell that these two love each other a great deal and it’s good to see even fictional characters have to work on their relationships they all aren’t happily ever after.

No Lucky Number by Victoria Blue
This is part of another series I’ve never read called The Secrets of Stone. Once again not having read the series doesn’t lessen the greatness of the story.
Here we have 3 business partners Talia, Drake, and Fletcher. They are at Nyte for a convention for work. Drake and Fletcher are yummy and they are good little boys you like to share. Talia is attracted to both men but she keeps hearing her mother in her head telling her that it’s wrong so she’s fighting it. She also has been hurt in the past and is afraid to trust her heart.
What she doesn’t know is that Drake and Fletcher don’t just wanna have a fun time in Vegas they want a real relationship with Talia, whom they’ve come to adore while working together.
Does Talia give in and start trusting her heart again or does she listen to her head? Ya gotta read to find out.

There is only a few things left to say after reading this anthology: I have found two new authors to add to my TBR list and someone PLEASE write a story about the mysterious Mr. Nyte!!! Please I’m begging I gotta know more about him and the staff at this awesome resort.

Winner Takes All by Mari Carr

Noah enters Food Fight, a new cooking competition show airing on the Food Network. When he makes it to the finals, he scores a trip to Vegas to compete. Problem is fellow finalist Hollie has captured his attention—in and out of the kitchen.

As the competition heats up, so does the sexual tension between Hollie and Noah. One night in Vegas, their simmering need explodes into full boil. But in this contest, winner takes all. Will they choose fame over forever? Or will they claim an even bigger prize?

angies review

I received this book from an honest review.

AHHH WOW DID I JUST READ ALL OF THAT!!  Uhm Yes, Yes I did!!

This book introduced me to two new authors (Mari and Sierra) but let me enjoy authors (Red, Angel, Jenna and Victoria) whose books make my erotica loving heart super happy!!

I can’t even begin to break this down except to say that each story is uniquely different.  Each story you read is so amazing and the only thing they have in common is the hotel.

Jenna’s story made me crazy (In a good way) because the couple has hurdles to overcome to get their HEA.

Red’s story touches on one of my FAVORITE side characters in her very popular series.  I am so hoping to see this character and his fantasy female again.

Angel’s story made me giggle because her characters are always just so funny!!  I mean the woman brings the humor to her stories.

 Victoria’s story made my heart beat because the female was so confused by feeling the way she did over the 2 alpha males who were very blatant in perusing the main character.  These ladies know their craft and do it very well.  Any small glimpse in to their writing and you will be sold and asking “what do I read first?”

Since I am a newbie to Sierra and Mari that is what I am saying, What next?  Sierra’s story was so AMAZING!!  I loved Cole and was like “WAIT ITS OVER”…NOOOOO !!  Mari’s novella I reacted the very same way…With a shake of my head and a quick look through the library to add another story of hers to read!!!

You can’t go wrong with the series of stories and if you haven’t loved these ladies before I can promise you will after reading the anthology.

Angel Payne

USA Today bestselling romance author Angel Payne has been reading and writing her entire life, though her love for romances began in junior high, when writing with friends on “swap stories” they’d trade between classes.

Some years, various entertainment industry gigs, and a number of years in the hospitality industry later, Angel returned to the thing she loves the most: creating character-based romantic fiction. Along the way, she also graduated with two degrees from Chapman University in Southern California, taking departmental honors for English, before writing five historical romances for Kensington and Bantam/Doubleday/Dell.

Angel found a true home in writing contemporary-based romances that feature high heat and high concepts, focusing on memorable alpha men and the women who tame them. She has numerous book series to her credit, including the Kinky Truth series, the Secrets of Stone series (with Victoria Blue), the W.I.L.D. Boys of Special Forces series, and the acclaimedCimarron series. Temptation Court, a new series being launched through the Dark Nights Discovery project, debuts in 2016.

Angel still lives in Southern California, where she is married to her soul mate and lives on a street that looks like Brigadoon, with their awesome daughter and Lady Claire, the dog with impeccable manners. When not writing, she enjoys reading, pop culture, alt rock, cute shoes, enjoying the outdoors, and being a gym rat.
