My Naughty Minette, Annabel Joseph

My Naughty MinetteMy Naughty Minette (Properly Spanked, 3), Annabel Joseph

Lady Minette knew at a young age her brothers bestfriend was the one for her. The Earl of Augustine however saw her as little Minette, his honorary baby sister. The thought of bedding her never crossed his mind until one night when everything changes and he goes from having a horrid fiance and wonderful mistress who understands his dark needs to engaged to the woman he considers his sister.

Minette is willing and desires to cater to all August needs but one dismal to many may be one too much.

Bookswagger Marcia: Four Crowns, good read, on the way to swagger. You ever read a book then fall into the series matrix…well I enjoy this author but bought book two of her historical romance spanked at a con even though I had never read her historical romances before. She writes on the spicy, might be to hot for you to handle side and it was a complete pleasant 360 to experience her historical spanked series. I enjoy spanking romances sometimes it is nice to delve into a read with an alpha hero and challenging heroine without all the hard work of modern playrooms, clubhouses and whips.

August and Minette had history and the history was a huge block. A block we came back to at almost every point in the story, which is what brought this one to a four for me, I was over it before them. Minette knew what she wanted and was not opposed to trying spanking or whatever bedroom mysteries her man needed because she trusted him. Which worked giving their background. This one was a little dark giving the hero and why he was so opposed to opening up and very protective of Minette she was part of the happy place in his life.

Straight to the Swagger: Minette balanced out the darkness in the hero she brought the light funny moments. Not as much spanking in this one as in the others as the hero was slow to let go of his inhibitions with his naughty Minette.

Reasonable Doubts, Cara Bristol (Domestic Discipline Review)

Reasonable Doubts, Cara Bristol

Liz Davenport has finally felt the pull towards a man after losing her husband. She thrived in their domestic discipline relationship and expected to find it again. Instead she meets Grant Davis, an ex-Naval JAG officer. The newest attorney at the firm that felt she was too shameful to employ and nothing like her older firmly entrenched in the lifestyle late husband.

Grant knows Liz is holding back, he thought everything was perfect they enjoy each others company but after he talks her into giving him another chance she admits to her needs. He has to get over his feelings of hitting a girl is wrong. He likes fulfilling all her needs and he is learning he is fulfilling needs he never knew he had.

Bookswagger Marcia: Four Crowns, good read, on the way to swagger. This was a good one. Liz is that girl/woman who knew her life, it was great and then she had to start over because he is gone. I have to admit it was a little sad, because I have read the other books in the series and of course her husband had been a side character but it was not cry worthy just oh, okay worthy. But the fact that Liz is older and the know it all already as far as domestic discipline makes for a story being told from an interesting perspective. The hero Grant Davis has never been in the life so that is where the conflict comes in relationship wise after Liz gives up the goods and tells him what she is into.

I mean could you imagine, you meet this hot guy, great job, he is into you and everything is going great then you have to put the brakes on…Because you need more out of our relationship. So you either going to tell him what you need and help him learn which is what Liz did. I thought it was cool. Usually the guy is the know all wise alpha one.

Straight to the Swagger: Domestic discipline with a twist, have to give kudos to the author on this the man was still all man and he learned how to apply the discipline. I have read every book in this series and usually the domestic discipline books tend to be clean but I like how Bristol keeps to the heart of the genre while bringing some spice.

Consume Me (Ravage MC, 3), Ryan Michele (Motorcycle Club Review)

Consume MEConsume Me (Ravage MC, 3), Ryan Michele

Blaze new name fits, she is much better than the person she used to be. She does not date, although probably not what you would expect from a stripper in a MC controlled exotic dance club. Blaze just know with men comes trouble and sometimes, the I don’t date rule is better than any relief a man could potentially provide.

Tug a prospect in the Ravage Motorcycle Club, knows what he wants and it is Blaze. He wants more than the casual hook up, or quick toss he can easily obtain from the club W (woooo, you thought I was going to say it). He finds in Blaze someone he wants to get to know, despite the secrets he is sure she has.

Bookswagger Marcia: Four Crowns, good read, on the way to swagger. I love this series, this is book three and it follows the expectations I have regarding Ryan Michele’s heroine. No matter their background or the things they have been through in life or how soft they appear, they have a backbone of steel that proves the right man can make bend. Blaze is no different. She is used to being on her own and protecting herself. Watching her date Tug an alpha man who likes to take care of and be there for the women in his life was sweet. She has to get used to letting someone else watch her back and boy does the sparks fly!

Straight to the Swagger: Heroine who I never thought I would like has me on her team and a hero who values the good things in life, like the woman he knows is for him and is not afraid to do a few dirty deeds.

Book one is the series currently on sale for .99 

Passion Shields Series, Kiru Taye (Review)

Passion Shields Series, Kiru Taye

Bookswagger Marcia: Four Crowns, good read, on the way to swagger. This was an interesting series, one reason I enjoy Taye is she provides another perspective, a different cultural view while still dishing the romance. This series packed some serious bedroom heat, I was surprised ( I never knew she got down like that). The dominant/submissive elements were an added bonus and I loved how she approached it. This was for the bedroom only, Ben or Benjamin when he is in dom mode knew he married a strong woman in Selina so he did not try that 24/7 ish with her.  The connection between Selina and Ben was so hot and that is what kept me in the series, that and the family drama. I mean this is romance, we need that conflict and a man that goes toe to toe for his girl is hot!

I do have to admit the start of the series was a little jarring, so much so I had to look it up to make sure I was reading book one. Ben and Selina had all this history and I felt like I joined the party late, but after that first XXX scene, I knew I was sticking around. So give at least book one a try, you will want to read on.

Straight to the Swagger: The bed is on fire, with these two hitting the sheets! Conflict and watching a man go hard for his woman (so hot),plus a chance to peak into another culture.


Description Provided: This is a multi-part series following the exploits of the sexy men and women of the Moss Star Security firm owned by Benjamin Moss and Christopher Star. We meet the lovers they possess, the clients they protect and travel internationally from London to Freetown, from Johannesburg to Los Angeles in sexy stories packed with sizzling secrets and thrilling suspense.

Contains: XXX situations, strong language and some violence.

Playing with Fire and Mate Set: Mating Heat my Favorite Audio Books of 2014

Playing with Fire and Mate Set: Mating Heat my Favorite Audio Books of 2014

Audio books can be a challenge, if there is something off about the writing boy does it show when you add sound. I mean drawn out scenes in print, you can just apply speed reading, the couple taking too long to hook up, to the point you want to do an intervention and say either pi$$ or get off the pot. Well those things are glaringly, irritatingly obvious in audio.

In 2014 I had two books I really enjoyed and they were both in the paranormal spectrum and I have read both of these in print, so I kind of knew what I was getting into.

Playing with FirePlaying with Fire, Gena Showalter
Narrated by: Jessica Almasy
Length: 12 hrs and 29 mins
Series: Belle Jamison, Book 1
Belle Jamison is misunderstood, yes she has some trouble being on time and holding onto her menial jobs but, she has other duties. She is the last person you would expect to gain superhuman powers and a fine shadow in Super Spy Agent Rome.

Rome does not know if he can trust Belle, he has been sent to neutralize her. Unfortunately he cannot bring himself to do it, instead he convinces her to join forces.

Bookswagger Marcia: Five Crowns, major swagger a must read. This listen has some ugly reviews but I love this series, it reads like a funny urban fantasy and I love action books that make me laugh. Belle and Rome are a unlikely team. He is super hot, dark and moody. Belle handles a lot of the unexpected situations like a normal person. I mean who would deal well with hot creepy men with super powers chasing you and your crush with an ex with the power to read your mind!

Straight to the Swagger: Tell of opposites attracting and funny, plus a hot hero who does not know what to do with the crazy chick he has fallen for.
Mate SetMate Set: Mating Heat, Book 1, Laurann Dohner
Narrated by: G. C. VonCloudts
Length: 7 hrs and 25 mins
Series: Mating Heat, Book 1
Mika a human is nursing a broken heart in a shifter town during mating season (can you just smell the trouble). She gets caught in the open by a group of mangy male shifters who think she is fair game because she is human and not mated. Along comes fine, strapping Grady, who happens to be one of the top enforcers in the local pack.

Bookswagger Marcia: Five Crowns, major swagger a must read. I like this book, what can I say I bought it twice. There are some slow parts and Grady the half human, half shifter had some human issues. Which made him ubber team shifter, it caused some great conflict between him and Mika but you know sometimes authors do not know when to ease up. Put a fork in the thing. But it was still great!

Mika and Grady fought, made up fought other bad guys you name it, the story came packing with plenty of action.

Straight to the Swagger: Think alpha male, cool human chick who knows just a little too much about shifters gets her own bodyguard and boy what they do with the time!



The Sweetest Taboo, Harper Miller (IR/MC/BDSM Romance Review)

Sweetest Taboo Harper MillerThe Sweetest Taboo: An Unconventional Romance, Harper Miller

Micah Foster is submissive, she knows what she wants and it is a dominant man. Now finding that man…

Dom Rick Thomas meets Micah at Spanxx the local fetish club but before he can get to know her as a Dom he is in doctor mode helping her through dire circumstances in the real world, beyond the anonymity of Spanxxx.

Micah thought she did not want to get to know Dom Rick Thomas better, but Dr. Thomas proved to be the Dom she needed to make her want a serious relationship.

These two deal with real issues while coming to terms with what they want and need from each other.

Bookswagger Marcia: Four Crowns, good read, on the way to swagger. Okay, I like Micha, she was not damaged, raised by two sane parents who we got to meet. I mean if I had to read another BDSM book where the heroine has turned to bdsm because of some childhood or teen dating drama. Dag I know we need black moments in these reads but let’s dig a little deeper. So I was like OMG she is AA, has herself together this is going to be good and it was. The relationship was intimate, very little club scening most of the xxx scenes took place in the bedroom or home playroom. Micah and Rick relationship progressed how I would expect one of my good, good girlfriends relationships to progress, if she were oh so lucky, as to meet a hot dominating doctor but I doubt they grow on trees, at least not in North Carolina.

Now a few things were a little jarring like the summer of 2009, beginning flash back and the heroine referring to herself in lowercase i. I get the “i”, I have seen it before in bdsm books, the sub refers to herself in lowercase and the 2009 stuff really was not necessary, just read on you will get to the good stuff it was just a few pages.

Straight to the Swagger: It is so hard to find a heroine with all of her right mind, you will find it in this read. The Sweetest Taboo is all about a couple getting to know each other and hot XXX.
