Blurb: Adam Locke’s youthful looks aren’t the blessing everyone seems to think. At twenty-eight, he’s a successful photographer with his own studio and respected by his peers—but that doesn’t seem to matter to the men who catch his eye. Instead, he’s brushed aside like an underage twink with a daddy fetish.

When a hot, bearded stranger stops him from accidentally walking into traffic, Adam looks up and finds the man of his dreams. Unfortunately, his first meeting with Brandon ends with him being dismissed as a kid. Again. Adam can’t help his annoyance. He also can’t help staring (and drooling) whenever he spots Brandon walking…

Blurb: Theater manager Teddy Carbone’s life has gone pretty much according to script… until now.

To his surprise, Teddy finds himself co-owner of the Oasis Theater with Carter Monroe, a corporate shark who’s looking at him like he’s chum in the water. Being in charge of the theater is one thing, but having to deal with Carter and his demands is another. With Carter’s proposed plan to sell the Oasis looming, Teddy must convince Carter the theater is worth saving.

Mother Nature’s Cruelest Predator (A Prickly Business Ficlet)

I legit LOL’d while reading the ficlet Piper wrote for Avery and Dylan. ❤️

piper vaughn

In the grand scheme of things, Avery Babineaux didn’t have very many secrets from his friends, or his mate. Especially Dylan. Sharing a house, living together day in and day out—it was hard to keep secrets under those circumstances unless you made a real effort at deception. But there was one thing Avery hid. One thing he’d never live down if Dylan or his friends found out.

Occasionally, when no one else was around, he liked to shift into his hedgehog form and play. Not the sort of playing he did with Dylan and his buddies when they ran the forest in shifted form, and Avery investigated scents in rocky crevices or hollow logs, snuffled at the leaves and the soft, loamy earth, or drank from the cool, rushing creek. That sort of behavior was expected from shifters.

This… well, this was the sort of playing domesticated animals did. Cats with…

The Broken Series by Kol Anderson

PrisonerThese two books are not sweet and fuzzy romance. This is dark erotica, heavy BDSM, Torment. It’s been a while since I’ve read this type of book – mostly because they became predictable. They were too dark, you never felt a connection with the villain/s or the torture was so unrelenting that all glimmer of hope was extinguished. You were left no reason to continue caring.

So these books had me breaking all sorts of rules. I got the first book, The Prisoner, and took a peek, I was just going to read a few paragraphs to get a sense of the authors style… next thing I know it’s 3 am – and I’m scrambling to find the next episode. THIS IS A SERIES! I grab book two, Hell and Beyond and read straight through to dawn. And I’m pris2chomping at the bit for more.

This author is completely new to me and I found his writing style gritty and evocative and erotic and amazing. He isn’t dabbling in BDSM… the man know’s the psychological triggers behind it, and shows it in all its disturbing splendor.

Every time I’m certain I have a fix on who’s pulling the strings or how much I loathe Vince… I find myself hesitating with my final judgement. On one hand the torture is unrelenting, but you’d get a glimpse, an insight to keep you plodding along… hoping. It’s beautiful, how the writer’s lured me into feeling stirrings of sympathy and empathy for Vince.

Aaron… oh Aaron. I can only imagine how easy it would have been to give in and write Aaron as weak and mindless. Not done here. His inner dialogue… fantastic.

I can say, without hesitation that I highly recommend these books to those who are prepared for the dark content. Rape/Non-Con/Torture
