Whipped (The Red Shoe Memoirs) by Karpov Kinrade
Whipped (Hitched) - Karpov Kinrade

A fun addition to The Red Shoe Memoirs series.  We first met Vi in book one, and she was a riot.  I loved her - and I love her even more in her own story.  She has temporarily stopped her role as dominatrix to open her own sex toy shop.  And we get a good dose of her personality with the first customer in the book.  I loved the whole introduction.  It had me laughing right off the bat.

Her relationship with Lachlan was an interesting one.  Both have experience using their body in a sexual way, so they seem to have a lot in common.  But Vi doesn't initially see it that way, and Lachlan has to work just a bit to get her to see that he's really interested.  By the way - their third date - epic!  I want a date like that.

The only part that really sort of turned me off were Vi's parents.  With our main characters being so over the top in their personalities, introducing two more that were the same way was just too much for my taste.  I'm hearing that many others loved it though.

There was a very nice ending.  A nice long resolution, which is my favorite kind - I love seeing my people just be together sometimes.  We get o see the gang from book one a bit here and there to help tie the story together, but this really was all about Vi.

Hitched (The Red Shoe Memoirs #1) by Karpov Kinrade
Hitched - Karpov Kinrade

This romance has all the excitement and drama one would expect to happen to Vegas - beginning with a drunken wedding between two people who don't really know each other. Well at least Kacie doesn't seem to remember. Sebastian thinks it's the best thing to ever happen and he sets out to prove to Kacie that he's right.

I really enjoyed the first person telling of this story. It can be hard to pull off, but if done correctly gives the reader some great insight into the main character. This story is told by Kacie and she has quite an interesting way of telling it. I loved her voice and colorful way of phrasing things. She was a riot and really made you feel what she was feeling.

At first Sebastian seemed way too good to be true - a rich, sexy doctor that's in the career for the right reasons? Way too good to be true. But he's not perfect - just really close, and that is what saved him for me. My heroes have to be at least a little flawed. I loved that he was willing to give Kacie time to realize her own feeling - but at the same time he wasn't going to try and hide or deny his own.

The setting of Las Vegas was perfect for this story. I loved the hubbub and bustle and the larger than life personalities. It's just what I always imaged the place would be like (I've never had a chance to go myself). Kacie's brother and best-friend play important parts in the story and it looks like perhaps they may be finding their own version of true love soon as well.
