Reluctant Master (Doms of Napa Valley Book 4) by [Dakota Trace]

Hurricane Lauren has struck once again, but this time her victim isn’t going to let her off so easy.

Carefree and adventurous, Lauren Haskell loves her life. Not only does she have a great job as a gearhead, but she’s also content to go from Dom to Dom, playing but never risking her heart, until it’s gotten her nicknamed Hurricane Lauren. Not that it has stopped Doms from trying to tame her – especially Davis Clayton, half owner of New Beginnings. In desperation to keep him from getting too close, she agrees to scene with another Dom. While she’s had fun with the man, it’s time to move on. Too bad the Dom in question doesn’t think so and is willing to break the rules to keep her.

Davis Clayton has hungered for Lauren to the point of desperation. When he sees Lauren with her latest victim, he’s had enough of chasing the little blonde submissive. He’s done playing the fool over her. But keeping his distance is proving a test for even as one of the strongest of Masters, until Lauren comes to him for protection from her stalker. When she asks him to pose as her Dom to keep the other man at bay, he agrees but on his terms. He may be one of the most Reluctant Masters in New Beginnings, but he will have her submission in exchange.

Review by WotRMomma Julia with permission from her daughter Madi

Davis has always had an interest in Lauren, but as the most difficult Sub at the club, she’s hard to pin down. They both have their play partners, but no one that is theirs. No one can claim Lauren, until she needs help. Davis will help her but on his terms, and she has to do what he tells her, or all bets are off. Pretty tall order for Hurricane Lauren who doesn’t follow rules! But she does need Davis’s protection, And in the process, they also save another. I loved this story, and would recommend the whole series that get’s you to this point!

Hello, and welcome to my site. I’m Dakota, an author of erotic romance (think 50 Shades of Gray – but better) and paranormal erotica. And what exactly does that mean? Well, since I’ve always marched to the beat of different drum: it means that I get to take my unique life experiences – like putting around in the garage with my dad, or driving a train when I was ten, to create worlds where the heroines aren’t necessarily June Clever, but are strong independent women who may stand on their own two feet, but long to submit to the right man. Whether it’s two friends who realize there is more than friendship between them or the sexy alien who captures his unwilling slave’s heart, sparks fly between them. My imagination has no bounds or at least none I’ve found yet!

Writers on the River Attending Authors: Mary Martel, Michel Prince and JM Walker

Its that time again we closed the door on 2021 and starting 2022.  My 2021 was a little crazy and I didn’t get as much reading in as I would have liked. It is hard to escape into books when things in real life are crashing around you. So instead of giving you my top 5 for June through December I decided to post a few of my favorites that I read this year.

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

First up anytime, we have scenes with Rytsar and Sir my heart goes pitter patter…this book doesn’t disappoint in that department.

This book full of family.  We are visiting our family in Russian and Italy plus our family in the states.  Family is blood and those you choose to love unconditionally.

When we visit Rytsar and Faelan in Russia, we see more of the loss Faelan is feeling but also revel in the love with our favorite Russian.  Seeing our Wolf so lost was sad and heartbreaking followed by the love and cherishing done by Master and Rytsar was enjoyable.  But seeing Lilly was kinda weird and scary.  The fact she is still so unbalanced is scary.   Red, Ya got me worried here sis!!

Visiting our family in Italy and learning of the secrets of the past was so sad and made us readers want to snuggle with Nonno and Nonna even more.  However, seeing them embrace Thane and Brie’s kids was so heartwarming.  When we learn more about Alonzo and the scenes that followed were super sexy and yummy to this readers heart.

Our American family is struggling and dealing with heartbreak and fears of the future, but I loved what we see from Master Anderson.  I mean he is just the most fun side character in the series IMO.  Plus Lea!!  GAH!!  I can’t wait to see what happens next there.

As we are used to reading there is heart and love in every page along with some mystery and suspense with how the book ended.  I do have to wonder what will come of Mary.  I see glimpses of her and what she could be and hope that she gets an HEA she deserves to have at some point.

Review by Twinsie Melinda

I received a copy of this book for an honest. review.

I was so excited to get a copy of this book, I always love seeing the adventures we go on with Brie.  Brie and Sir took us on one heck of an adventure.  They took us to Russia to see my favorite man Rytsar and then to Italy to see Nonna and Nonno.

We learn so many things about Sirs family and friends. I had so many emotions going on in this one. I loved seeing Rytsar, Nonna and Nonno seeing Brie and Sir’s son for the first time.  My heart went out to Faelan when he saw the baby.  Sir has to face so many hard memories and finding out secrets of his family.

I enjoyed seeing everyone.  We got a glimpse of so many and got small updates on each of them.  One thing is constant in these books the love Sir and Brie have for their friends and family.  No matter what they have to face they face it together as a family. I feel I need the next book the ending of this one has me on the edge of my see to see what is going to happen next.

#wotr #attendingauthor #novella With You by J.M. Walker

Our world changed five years ago, and it left behind this gaping hole in our relationship.

We were now trying to figure out a way to move past a tragedy without losing ourselves in the process.

Married, with a son, we needed to communicate but neither of us wanted to talk about our loss. Instead, we focused on our little boy.

Finally, after having had enough, we took a trip, learned new things about each other, and fell into an even deeper kind of love.

We revealed new truths about one another and because of that, we could come out of this stronger in the end.

Author note: With You is part of the Perfectly Stated Series but Meadow and Shade can originally be found in With Us, book 2 in The Next Generation Series. With You is a continuation of their story and is 5 years after With Us takes place.

#NewRelease – The Cowboys Secret by Red Phoenix

The Cowboy's Secret

“Kiss my whip, darlin’…”

I’m not your average cowboy. While I may have tight jeans and a big “belt buckle”, my real talent lies in using my bullwhip to pleasure the ladies.

Known for my special brand of kink and my sense of humor, I have worked hard to carve out my own path, until the day I get the call from my father that our family is about to lose the Anderson ranch.

I am willing to sacrifice everything in my search to find a solution that will save my family’s homestead. In the process, I am introduced to an extraordinary person.

Little do I know that my solution will involve this mysterious stranger who demands I keep a secret.

This secret will change everything

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

Oh Master Anderson!!  I love going back into time to see my favorite jokester grow his bond with Thane and Durov.  We see Master Anderson and all the beginning of the love with his whip *shivers*.  We see him becoming the man we all love.  I mean how do you not love a man who can sweep you off your feet with cooking and spankings *Wink*

I enjoyed seeing him become the respectful and loyal friend we love in the main series.  I loved seeing his past and knowing how it shapes his future.  I enjoyed seeing how him grow his skills but what I loved was his special relationship with Dominus.  When we see him enter the training center it was so exciting.  I love seeing the “before” scenes.  We all know what happens once Brie enter but seeing before is mesmerizing!!

I mean seriously there is nothing about this book I didn’t love.  Master Anderson just makes me smile.  He warms your heart and hope that you can find someone to make you feel as special as he makes the submissives in his care.

#WOTR21 #NewRelease #MM #Bdsm – Shrouded Desires, Redemption Book 1 by Dakota Trace

Shrouded Desires (Redemption Book 1) by [Dakota  Trace ]

Sometimes life throws you lemons, or in this case a best friend who has a heart attack.

Storm Parkers is at the top of his game. He’s the star wide receiver for one of the newest expansion teams in the league. He’s got a hot little Italian submissive that has agreed to no strings sex, and it’s finally off-season. Which means all he has to do is sit back, enjoy his time off and indulge in some of his…baser needs. That all changes in the blink of an eye with one phone call. Max had a heart attack. Now he’s dealing with a pissed off former lover, a best friend/business partner in the hospital, and a mouthy sub who lives on premises of his newest business endeavor. But he was a dominant…he could handle it, right?

Whoever said make lemonade, needs a trip over the nearest spanking bench.

Raine Donovan is no stranger when it comes to struggles. Most days he’s a hot mess, unless surrounded by either numbers or his best friend, Lizzie or her Master husband Max. Which is why he lives on premise in Max’s BDSM club. Within the safe walls of Redemption, he could escape his debilitating social anxiety, his self-harming tendencies and life in general. Which is why his whole world is turned upside down when Max has a heart attack. Now, he’s leaving his sanctuary for trips to the hospital, dealing with staffing issues and an asshole dominant who thinks he’s in charge. But he’s a strong submissive…he could handle it, right?

#NewRelease #DoubleReview #BDSM – The Ties that Bind, Brie’s Submission #22 by Red Phoenix

The Ties That Bind (Brie's Submission Book 22) by [Red Phoenix]

“His touch is like magic…”

Brie is in the middle of a fight for her life. A force far more powerful than Brie is determined to destroy her.

About to give birth to her second child, Brie is vulnerable to the unprecedented attack—but she is not afraid.

When you are part of the Submissive Training Center, you are never alone.

Prepare yourself for an explosive climax that will leave you satisfied in more ways than one.

Watching an entire world go up in flames has never felt so good!

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

Oh man, this series is just what my heart needs.  It is always the perfect blend of all love, hearts and happiness mixed with sexy times, twists and villains!!

This book picks up with the loss from the last book.  GAH, I’m still just as broken up now as I was then.  But we are moving forward with protecting everyone from Lilly, destroying Greg, saving Mary, plus the birth of the newest Davis member.

So much happens in the story.  I loved seeing Tono and Autumn.  I want to know what’s up with Lea and Hunter?  Will Todd ever be ok again?  Is our favorite Russian going to be back soon?  But mainly what is going on with the movie!!!  The storyline of Brie’s movie was the biggest storyline, and I was so excited about it.  I mean what are they going to do about Greg and his control over Hollywood.  Plus, what can Brie do to move her documentary forward without Hollywood support since she had been blacklisted.

But of course, the story of the love between Brie and Sir is always showcased.  I loved their trip back to the training center to help submissives understand a healthy D/s relationship.  It’s like coming full circle for them and where they started.

The birth of the newest member was beautiful.  I loved everything about it.  I will not even begin to think about spoilering anything but the name made my heart melt right along with the everyone else’s reaction to it.

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

Red has such an amazing way of telling Bri’s story. The love that all these friends have for one another is incredible. If someone needs help, they are all there ready to pitch in no matter what.

Bri has so many things going on and with her big heart she wants to help everyone. There is so much going on in this book. We are picking up where the last book left off. Man, there are so many pieces to pick up right now after the loss they all endured. Poor Todd he deserves so much more right now.

Bri is dealing with her new movie and wondering if it will get a chance to be on the big screen. Also, she has her unborn baby to think about. Bri still has Lilly on her mind and what will happen there.

Rystar maybe a sadist but he has a heart of gold and will do anything for any of them. There are so many amazing scenes in this book not just between Bri and Sir but more so everyday interactions between all of them. It was so good to see Tono & Autumn. I am intrigued with Lea and Hunter too.

This group of friends show us that family is not always blood but how you let into your circle of the best most supportive family anyone can ask for. I always feel home with this family and I’m so ready for more.  I need to know how things will go for Failen, how will the Lilly thing work out and will Gregg try to sabotage Bri more and wonder if Sir and Bri will do more demonstrations to help subs understand the true D/s dynamic.

#review #BDSM – The Effing List by Cherise Sinclair, Book 14 of the Masters of the Shadowlands

Book Cover

Let’s liven up our marriage. It’ll be fun.
Then her husband brought two slaves into the house. That was the end of that. Divorce achieved, Valerie is working on her goals. Friends: has a new one. Fitness: little muscles! Finances: in the black.

Friskiness? Total. Effing. Fail.
So she attends the notorious Shadowlands club’s open house. There, a sadistic Dom—a fellow professor–teaches her that she loves pain with her pleasure. He wants to show her more.

Despite the razor edges of his hard face and the authority in his every word, he’s careful and caring. He listens, and how tempting is that?

But she knows better. Her heart is off limits.

Retired Special Forces colonel, Ghost has been a widower for long enough.
Although he’s ready to love again, the generous, caring woman he desires has scars from her past. However, he has hard-won skills, enough to show Valerie there can be a new F on her list—fulfillment. Life looks good.

Until his past surfaces, shattering his new life and the love he’d hoped to win.

Review by Twinsie Angie

I was given this book by the author for an honest review.

What I love about this series is how I appreciate the men are not the young strapping Doms but they are seasoned men who know what they want.  They have been through it all and are in the prime of their lives.  As I get older, I am beginning to appreciate a man who knows what he wants, who he is, and what he will do with his live.  The fact all of Cherise’s Dom fall into this category makes my reading even better.

Valerie and Ghost AKA Finn.  They are two professors who enjoy the lifestyle.  Valerie has learned she is a very eager masochist while Ghost is the very eager sadist to teach her the ways of it all.  The two should have it easy but conflict arises.  Valerie had a WONDERFUL DB of an ex who put a lot in her head.  His treatment is what is causing Ghost so many difficulties.  Ghost on the other had also has some issues with his past like many of the other doms.  The two have a lot to fix in themselves before they can fully open up to what could be with the other.

As always, I love catching up with my old favorites form the series and see how life has progressed for them.  This book doesn’t disappoint me at all.

A New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, she’s renowned for writing heart-wrenching romances with laugh-out-loud dialogue, alpha males, and absolutely sizzling sex.

I met my dearheart when vacationing in the Caribbean. Now I won’t say it was love at first sight. Actually since he stood over me, enjoying the view down my swimsuit top, I might have been a tad peeved—as well as attracted. But although we were together less than two days and lived on opposite sides of the country, love can’t be corralled by time or space.

We’ve now been married for many, many years. (And he still looks down my swimsuit tops.)

Nowadays, I live in the west with this obnoxious, beloved husband and a seventy-pound lap-puppy. I’m a gardener, and I love nurturing small plants until they’re big and healthy and productive…and ripping defenseless weeds out by the roots when I’m angry. I enjoy thunderstorms, collecting eggs from the chickens, and visiting the local brewery for the darkest, maltiest beer on tap. My favorite way to spend an evening is curled up on a couch next to the master of my heart, watching the fire, reading, and…well…if you’re reading my books, you obviously know what else happens in front of fires.
