Review: Naughty & Nice: Single's Night
Naughty & Nice: Single's Night: (BDSM, BBW, MFF, Lesbian) - Marisa Oldham,S.M. Rose,Noah Wilde,Emma Payne,Angelia Rourke

Naughty & Nice: Single's Night is an anthology containing four connected short stories, all about men or women attending (or working at) a Single's Night event. Marisa Oldham starts out the collection with Lucy, a woman who doubts her own attractiveness after being left for a younger and thinner woman. This is one of the sweetest stories in the book, showing that appearance shouldn't matter if someone truly loves you. The next story, submitted by S.M. Rose, shows the story of Claire, Lucy's friend who is dragged along to the club, and Claire's own realization of what she really wants in her own life and relationships. Noah Wilde's addition takes us to a slightly wilder side, giving us a story from the point-of-view of a man who enjoys consensual BDSM, and Emma Payne's conclusion to the anthology, Last Call, shares the tale of the bartender who watched everyone at the event... and her own potential Happily-Ever-After ending.

I like my erotica with an actual plot, and I was happy that this anthology delivered. There is plenty of sex, some vanilla and a lot more adventurous, but enough of an actual story and likeable characters to make it enjoyable outside of the obvious. I enjoyed the first and last stories the most, but all were good.

4 1/2 Stars for a fun collection of romance and erotica.

NOTE: I received an ARC of this novel in exchange for an honest review.

DNF
Saved By His Submissive - Angel Payne

 

 

Asshole. Thinking his fiancé has been dead for over a year, the male mc rescues her from slave traders in Thailand. Then on their first night reunited, instead of catching up on their missed time and being grateful that he gets a second chance, he visits a fucking brothel. Asshole. After she finds out where he went, he doesn't understand why she won't just forgive him even though “nothing happened”. FYI, if you visit a brothel instead of being with the woman you love, whom you thought was dead, is not “nothing happened”.

 

 

 

 




Didn’t finish at page 79 and at 36%. What a waste of time.

Rating: two-stars

Angel Payne’s W.I.L.D. series has been on my list to read for a long time. I really wanted to get into bad boys, dominant to the heart, faithful the submissives that own them. Well, I jumped in at book 6 and I was prepared to over look the things I didn’t understand that I should have read about in the first five books. So when the book started hot and heavy and I was lost about the airplane hijacking, I let it go thinking the set up came from a different book and I would just flow with it. It worked for a bit. I mean, Shay meets Zoe in the airport bar with her dancer friends who are coming on to him. He helps them get back to the hotel when all the planes are grounded from freaky fog. But he knows Zoe is submissive and he plans on having that one night stand and get back to his undercover mission.

 

The first night together I was all over Shay and how wonderful he is with Zoe. But when the next morning comes, I am immediately back in confusionville. And this had nothing to do with being lost coming into the middle of the series. See Zoe is on the flight Shay and the bad guys are hyjacking. Shay, or Shane, his undercover name, wears a mask but Zoe finds herself attracted to his voice. He does things on the flight I just felt gave up his cover. Then Zoe faints and we jump several hours into the future and they have landed.

 

That was the second problem I had with the book. Jumps in time that seem critical to the story. So here I am confused as to how they land a plane they hijacked in Area 51. While Zoe is hooked up to an IV to rehydrate her, Shay comes clean to her about his mission and then they engage in a BDSM scene again. All while they are on a base, where paranormal super soldier type stuff is taking place. I just sat scratching my head. Sure the BDSM was hot, but I kept waiting for the creepy nurse to walk in or the head bad guy, Stock. It was just too surreal.

 

So Shay is undercover to find his mom who he thinks they are keeping to do experiments. Rescuing her is his ultimate goal. Zoe on the other hand is just a dancer in Vegas. I didn’t feel much depth to her character and when they are running around from the CIA I just wanted to laugh. It wasn’t suspenseful or interesting.

 

Zoe has a group of friends that offered some comic relief. They even stayed in one of the friends mentor’s houses as they regrouped once. Zoe’s younger sister, Ava, is getting married to one of the WILD boys so her story must be one of the five I missed. Throw in Shay’s older brother, Tait, sharing a woman with Kell. I am pretty sure they have a book too. I could see Shay’s best friend Colton hooking up with Zoe’s friend Brynn. It all just felt disjointed.

 

So most of the book, I was fine with the two getting iy on and connecting. Otherwise I was just plain bored with the rest of the book since it left me feeling lost, uninterested and just not caring what actually happens because I found it all kind of silly. Then at the end, it felt like an abrupt ending. Then flash forward in time. Not really my kind of ending.

 

There is a paranormal, super soldier element as well. I don’t want to give too much away, but it seemed to come out of left field to smack me in the face. It all felt forced and uncomfortable.

 

I really, really, really wanted to love this book. That is why it is so hard to say I didn’t.

Hot For His Hostage
Hot For His Hostage - Angel Payne The Romance Review

Mine is the 2nd review

One night stands are supposed to be a lusty hot night of burning up the sheets. When morning comes, the parties separate and only remember the passion, nothing else. For Zoe Chestain, the mother hen of the Vegas dancers, experiencing a one night stand is not something she does. So when she does fall into bed with the sexy stranger Shay Bommer at the airport bar, it is a night to remember.

The sex in this story is good, but the BDSM is a bit strange. I can't quite put my finger on it. I think it's because the BDSM is romanticized, which is why it feels a little off for me. This works just fine in a kinky erotica romance. The scenes are not what I'd consider a guide for newbies to try out. They would be disappointed. Since this isn't a BDSM 101, I don't expect the author to be exactly on point.

The characters in this story are a hoot. Zoe's friends, specifically her bestie the gay model, are unreal. What is also unreal is how this series suddenly falls into a X-files type plot. As a standalone story, this story works. It falls into the para-human category. It's an over the top secret agent suspense with a back history of mother stolen. The missing mother plot reminds me of the American TV series Chuck. This series does have a similar wacky tone to it. HOT FOR HIS HOSTAGE is the one which seems to have jumped the shark, almost literally.

Ms. Payne may have packed too much into this story. There are many different plots going on at the same time as she forcefully ties it all together. This makes the story come across a bit clunky and slapstick comedy. The conflicts in this story are fine even if they do feel a bit contrived. Ms. Payne does a good job generating the obstacles for our hero to hurdle over. The way every issue is resolved may be a bit eye rolling. Perhaps it is a tongue-in-cheek poking fun of secret agent films.

Overall, this brings all the threads mostly to a close through friends in high places. There is a happily ever after in a whirlwind romance where the misjudged hero is redeemed. Recommended for romantic suspense lovers who are fans of Fifty Shades of Gray.
