New Release Review! Theirs to Pleasure (The Marriage Lottery #2) Stasia Black!
Theirs to Pleasure - Stasia Black

 

 

In the New Republic, every woman must marry five men.
It’s the law.
Welcome to the apocalypse.

 

Shay came into the township knowing she’d be a lottery bride. So she’d have to marry five men.


She wasn’t the naïve girl she’d been eight years ago.
She’d learned the lessons that had been beaten into her and she’d learned them well.


So yes, so she’d share her body with her new husbands.
But her secrets were still her own.

 

The men are different than she expected, though. They each had their own reasons for entering the lottery. There’s Charlie, who’s so sweet and kind. Rafe, who’s a light-hearted jokester during the day but dark and demanding in bed. Then Jonas and Henry and Gabriel, each bringing their own damage and beauty to the clan until, day by day, they begin to feel like a real family.

 

There’s just one little problem with the happy new family clan.
One of them isn’t who he appears to be.
He is a spy for the enemy.

 

Will Shay and the township be doomed before she and her husbands have a chance at lasting happiness?


Please note that this book contains some dark elements and covers sensitive topics. Any reader that feels they shouldn't venture into this apocalyptic world of sometimes harsh realities should please consider before reading.

 

 

 

The second book in The Marriage Lottery series is a sensual and exciting read that holds readers captive from the very beginning. The story starts off giving a bit of background for how Shay and Charlie met which lets readers know right off the bat that this story is going to be full of thrilling suspense and action. The fast pace ensures that readers never have a dull moment or lose interest in anything that is going on and let me just say that there are lots of exciting events that take place, events that steam the senses, events that hold readers in suspense and events that really get the adrenaline pumping. Shay knew that she would participate in the lottery and have five husbands and while she intends to share her body, she will keep her secrets which certainly keeps readers guessing and on edge. The five men, Charlie, Rafe, Jonas, Gabriel and Henry all have stirring parts in this story as well, but since one of them may or may not be a spy for the enemy, readers are kept on edge no matter how well they get to know them.

 

These strong, captivating characters are brought to vivid life and easily enthrall readers with their story, so much so that surprising twists ensure that the readers can’t determine all the secrets and who is the enemy until the very thrilling reveal. The romance itself is full of super sexy and erotic scenes as well emotional turmoil that adds realism to the story especially since nothing is ever black and white. The story is also quite intense, not only because the emotionally troubled relationship but also due to the conspiracy that these characters find themselves embroiled in.

 

Once again, I was completely taken in by Stasia Black’s story and her well-developed characters and post-apocalyptic world that I had no problem envisioning, so I can’t wait to read the next one.

Stasia was born in Georgia, grew up in Texas, recently spent a freezing five-year stint in Minnesota, and now is happily planted in sunny California, which she will never, ever leave.

 

She loves writing, reading, listening to podcasts, and has recently taken up biking after a twenty-year sabbatical (and has the bumps and bruises to prove it). She lives with her own personal cheerleader, aka, her handsome husband, and their teenage son. Wow. Typing that makes her feel old. And writing about herself in the third person makes her feel a little like a nutjob, but ahem! Where were we?

Stasia’s drawn to romantic stories that don’t take the easy way out. She wants to see beneath people’s veneer and poke into their dark places, their twisted motives, and their deepest desires. Basically, she wants to create characters that make readers alternately laugh, cry ugly tears, want to toss their kindles across the room, and then declare they have a new FBB (forever book boyfriend).

Release Day Review! Devoted to Pleasure ( Wicked Lovers #12.5 / Devoted Lovers #1) Shayla Black!
Devoted to Pleasure (A Devoted Lovers Novel) - Shayla Black

 

 

The first in an all-new sexy contemporary romance series from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Shayla Black.

 

Bodyguard and former military man Cutter Bryant has always done his duty--no matter what the personal cost. Now he's taking one last high-octane, high-dollar assignment before settling down in a new role that means sacrificing his chance at love. But he never expects to share an irresistible chemistry with his beautiful new client.

 

Fame claimed Shealyn West suddenly and with a vengeance after starring in a steamy television drama, but it has come at the expense of her heart. Though she's pretending to date a co-star for her image, a past mistake has come back to haunt her. With a blackmailer watching her every move and the threat of career-ending exposure looming, Shealyn hires Cutter to shore up her security, never imagining their attraction will be too powerful to contain.

 

As Shealyn and Cutter navigate the scintillating line between business and pleasure, they unravel a web of secrets that threaten their relationship and their lives. When danger strikes, Cutter must decide whether to follow his heart for the first time, or risk losing Shealyn forever.

 


The first book in Shayla Black’s new Devoted Lovers series is just as pleasurable to read as the books in her Wicked Lovers series. Cutter Bryan is a former military man who is now a bodyguard and his newest client turns this man’s personal life upside down. Shealyn West stars in a steamy television drama and she needs a bit of help with a blackmailer but she is not prepared for the attraction that threatens all her secrets. These strong, charismatic characters pull readers into their story with lots of electrifying chemistry, super-heated passion and a powerful relationship that readers find fulfilling and stimulating. The romance between these two is only a little sweet as they fight the attraction due to the track that their lives have taken and responsibilities and loyalties that they have to others but when they give in to that attraction, the pages explode with passion and combustible energy. The relationship another words is quite energetic, full of secrets and suspense that keeps readers involved in the story from beginning to end.

 

The steady to fast paced plot has lots of thrilling suspense as the Cutter tries to determine where the danger is coming from which is made harder by Shealyn’s secrets and lots of excitement with surprising twists and exhilarating danger as the blackmailer ups the ante and startling truths are revealed. There is certainly no way that the readers can become bored during this story the events and timing of those events build the suspense and romance into stirring climaxes.

 

Truthfully, I love Shayla Black’s books and the worlds that she creates because she delivers each and every story with a passion that really pulls me in and ensures that I want to know the characters and every last detail of their story, so it was no surprise to me that I was completely taken in by Cutter (who is just too sexy for words) and Shealyn’s story.

A Taste of Pleasure (Deliciously Dechamps, #2) by Chloe Blake
A Taste of Pleasure - Chloe Blake

 

Blake sets out to wet the palette with a flavorful blend spices. A Taste of Pleasure appeals to all the pieces that makes us human. An exotic location, a sizzling romance and a tasty canvas of heart that outshines the mouth watering foods that make up this bouffett of love. Danica set her sights on making her mark on the world. Her passion lies in the kitchen, yet her heart has her craving something more. Antonio comes with a bit of baggage, but he's all heart. If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen, because Danica and Antonio are the perfect recipe for love.

Release Week Review! The Science of Pleasure (Morphate #1.5) Jacquelyn Frank!
The Science of Pleasure - Jacquelyn Frank

 

 

In the Name of Science

 

Dr. Jenesis DeBruehl once hoped that her scientific research would have positive ramifications for humanity, only to have her work twisted by the evil Dr. Eric Paulson and used to torture innocents.

 

Seven years later she finally has her own lab again, despite her checkered past. Kincaid “Kin” Gregory is a Morphate, one of the people mutated by Paulson. Now running the lab that Jenesis is joining, Kin is surprised by the lust he feels for the human woman. While Jenesis struggles with her guilt over the role she played in Kincaid’s mutation, he encourages her to use him as her personal test subject. No limitations. With Kin’s body all hers, Jenesis is about to make a whole new kind of discovery . . .

 

 

In the name of paranormal readers everywhere…


The Science of Pleasure is a thrilling and fascinating read that brings life to a whole new world for readers to enjoy. Jenesis and Kin are two very strong characters with electrifying chemistry and that grab readers’ attention from the very beginning. The romance is full of tension and passion as these two fight their sizzling attraction and the relationship really doesn’t have great odds of working out due to the differences between them and the past. This fast paced story is full of intense and suspenseful events that keep readers glued to the pages as Jenesis and Kin try to work out their differences and take a dangerous gamble in a move against the evil Dr. Paulson.

 

Jax / Jacquelyn Frank has created a very intriguing world full of unique and fascinating characters that are similar to vampires but very different as well as having an overall sexy feel to the story. It takes place in a futuristic vision of our world which adds more spice to the story and adds to the believability of the characters and their overall existence. The only problem I had with this story, is that it was over too soon, but that’s okay, I will just have to read the next book – Dangerous as soon as I can.

She is known for her persistent gifts of books to her nieces and nephews, as well as all the other children in her life, in an effort to see them love both as much as she does.

review SPOILER ALERT! 2018-05-07 05:47
Don't trust booktubers, common sense media, goodreads choice awards. Don't even trust this review.
A Court of Frost and Starlight - Sarah J. Maas

 

 

description

One more time I want to warn readers, teachers and parents that this series isn't YOUNG ADULT. Distrust any booktuber, goodreads reviewer/editor, and "prestigious" site that tells you otherwise.

If you are a teacher or librarian Distrust the information on genre and recommended age that comes from the publisher Bloomsburry Children's. Also distrust Kirkus reviews, Booktubers and bookbloggers who say this is Young adult, Common sense media and The Goodreads choice awards for Young adult. More on that at the bottom of my review.

THIS SERIES IS EROTIC/NEW ADULT NOT YOUNG ADULT. If reviewers tell you this series isn't new adult they're lying through their teeth. The result of those lies is that books with erotic content are currently labeled as CHILDREN'S BESTSELLERS or recommended to 12 YO readers.

Is the author and publisher of this book really selling books with erotic/explict content to young kids without warnings? In the USA most copies of this series come with no warning of explicit content. I applaud writers that write erotic content, just don't sell it to young children. This is from booktopia, an Australian retailer; It recommends the most erotic book of the series to readers AS YOUNG AS 12.

description

UPDTE MAY 20TH
Audible is recommending this book along with the first book of the series to 13 YO. However they are recommending the most explicit book of the series to 11-13 YO kids

That's why you shouldn't trust publishers to give the correct information on genre and recommended age in YA books.

**Don't trust MY review either**

**Do your own research and tell me why this series shouldn't be considered PARANORMAL EROTICA, PARANORMAL NEW ADULT, FANTASY ROMANCE or ADULT ROMANTIC FANTASY. **

You can start by finding out:
How old the main characters are?

I'll tell you, but don't believe me, find out for/by yourself.
Protagonist is 20-21 (like Anastasia Steel from fifty shades of grey)
Her sisters are even older
the rest of the cast is several hundreds year old
Isn't YA an age-based classification? Then why is this series labeled as a YA book?

How explicit the sex is

You can find that information on my A COURT OF MIST AND FURY REVIEW updates. My ACOMAF review hasn't been censored by goodreads employees yet as my TOWER OF DAWN(another new adult book by this same author)review was. My Tower of dawn review has 273 likes so it should appear in the main page of reviews. Goodreads is hiding it. That sucks because it's the responsibility of parents (not of Goodreads, not of the publishers and authors) to find out about the content of the EXPENSIVE books they buy for their underage kids. But how are they going to find that information when so many booktubers, common sense media and Goodreads members are hiding it?

You can also find the information about erotic content of this series on the american hardcover version of a court of mist and fury.
Pages 21, 22 (view spoiler)

Pages 471, 472, 473, 474. 475
(view spoiler)

Pages 530, 531, 532, 533, the orgasm that shatters the mountains: (view spoiler)

Pages 538 and 539 (view spoiler)

DISCLAIMER AND TRIGGERS WARNINGS:

♣ IF YOU DON'T LIKE READING EROTIC/EXPLICIT CONTENT and don't tell me that you can skip the sex scenes, Most of us don't pay full hardcover price for skiping half the book ;)
(view spoiler)

♣ IF YOU THINK YOUNG ADULT IS A GENRE THAT SHOULD REMAIN CLEAN

♣ IF YOU ARE 12-17 YO WHO DON'T LIKE TO READ EXPLICIT SEX SCENES

♣ IF YOU DON'T LIKE LOVE TRIANGLES And MULTIPLE MALE LOVE INTERESTS
Book 1 we have a love triangle: Tamlin vs Rhysand (view spoiler)
Book 2 We have a love triangle: Rhysand vs. Tamlin but it's really uneven (view spoiler)
Book 3: NO LOVE TRIANGLE! (view spoiler)

♣ IF YOU DON'T LIKE ABUSIVE LOVE INTERESTS AND ABUSIVE WOMEN
-Tamlin love interest of book 1? ABUSIVE!
-Rhys, secondary love interest of book 1 and (view spoiler)ABUSIVE!
- The sisters? Everyone talks about how Tamlin should apologize. When will the sisters apologize? (view spoiler) ABUSIVE!

♣IF YOU DON'T LIKE WHEN sexual assault victims ARE THROWN UNDER THE BUS TO MOVE THE PLOT FORWARD. CAREFUL WITH DANGEROUS RAPE MESSAGES
It happens so much on New adult and adult literature (game of thrones, the girl with the dragon tatoo, the second book of the outlander series) a sexual assault victim gets the "oh-you-were-raped?- don't- bitch- about- it- and- move- forward treatment. So many books trivialize the worst aspect of PTSD and sexual assault and try to "sovle it" either with revenge or the magic romantic relationship that will make everything go away. Or the experiences just get ignored and brush aside! This happens to Mor, a secondary character in the 3rd book who is a rape survivor when (view spoiler)To be fair, I can understand the circumstances, doesn't mean I have to like that kind of story line, especially when that's something that good editing could have taken care of. That kind of disrespect for rape was unneccessary IMO. It didn't move the plot forward and it's out of character for Rhys to act like that. I love Rhys and didn't like the way SJM made him act.

♣ IF YOU BELIEVE ANY BOOK YOU PAY FOR SHOULD BE PROFESSIONALLY EDITED
I'm not a grammar nazi and my spelling is terrible, but I can tell you, even some fanfiction I've read has a more polished editing than this book. There's the overuse of words like mate. There are also problems with pace, repetitiveness, flow and consistency of the voices when changing from a narrator to the other and from a first person POV to a 3rd person POV. The characters sound too modern. The worldbuilding is not high fantasy at all. The setting of this series is pretty much like a modern series. All these are things that a content editor and a proofreader could have taken care off, but the publishers rushed publication lowering the quality of the editing and the writing. Even so they are selling this at full ebook price.

My ratings for the series so far

A Court of Thorns and Roses ACOTAR 3/5 because abusive relationships, false advertising (it's new adult dishonestly marketed as young adult) and love triangle. My review is currently censored and hidden from the third page of review. It should appear somewhere between page 2 and 3.
A COURT OF MIST AND FURY ACOMAF4/5 because I didn't appreciate the explicit sex scene with OM, but I highly recommend this book to my friends who don't mind safety issues and like explicit scenes in slow-burn-romance. This book is EROTICA (according to the goodreads description of the genre) marketed as YA.

description


A COURT OF WINGS AND RUIN ACOWAR 2.5/5 because poor editing, f bombs, repetitiveness, unnecessary sex scenes and dangerous messages. No, glorifying revenge and abusive women isn't female empowerment. No, in most marriage it isn't always the woman's choice, it's always the choice of both of them. My review is currently censored by goodreads.

AMAZON CANADA CHILDREN'S BOOKS FANTASY

AMAZON AUSTRALIA CHILDREN'S BOOKS LOVE

EROTICA GENRE DEFINITION ACCORDING TO GOODREADS


ACOMAF RECOMMENDED TO CHILDREN 11-13 on audible




WHY YOU SHOULDN'T TRUST BOOKTUBERS AND THE YA GOODREADS CHOICE AWARDS REGARDNG THE CONTENT OF THIS BOOK?
Because, a vast majority of booktubers have failed so far to mention that this book series contains erotic/explicit content in their booktube reviews even though they always discuss "young adult books". It could be unintentionally. It could be intentionally. The reason doesn't matter. They're contributing to the false advertising.

A few booktubers are being published or aspire to be published by the same IMPRINT of this new adult series. Others booktubers and bookbloggers seem to want good relationships with the publishing industry. They won't say anything that can hurt the marketing agenda of the big publishing houses. Note: Bookables, Benji Alderson and Polandbananas have mentioned this series is new adult , so of course a lot of booktubers are somehow honest . Distrust only the ones who call this series young adult.

On the other hand, The goodreads choice awards editors ignored the shelving system when they selected the categories for the goodreads choice awards last year. In the goodreads feedback group they told me that's how editors select categories: based on shelving.



At the time of the awards this series was shelved primarily as fantasy and romance by GR users, but still the editors made it compete on the young adult category. Not in romance, not in fantasy, in young adult.



This review isn't meant to discouraging people from reading/buying the book. On the contrary. I'm inviting you to read this series if you don't have problems with sexual content and abusive relationships. Despite all the problems I have with the false advertising I enjoyed the trilogy . But again I'm warning you

♣ NEVER trust the information that you see on Goodreads, Common sense media. and booktube. Do your research.

Life is too short and TBR piles are too big to just ignore the kind of information that can help us decide what we will read next. Goodreads shouldn't try to hide that information.

For a series that is supposedly about women's choices, when Goodreads, Booktubers and Publishers hide this information from young girls they are taking away their right to decide when or if they will read erotic content. Not to mention they're contributing to the book being sold in the Children's section of multiple retailers.
