Gagged (The Clipped Saga, Book 3)
Gagged - Devon McCormack

The conclusion has finally arrived, and I am in awe. Honestly not since Nicholas Bella has an author taken me on such an unbelievable mindfuck like this author has. And while there was a break in writing between books 2 and 3, this author managed to step right back into this world without missing a beat.

 

 

First off, this is a book with painful sex. And while many may shy away from this part of the story it is brilliantly done. These acts are not thrown in for the sake of it. These acts are such an integral part of the story, of these characters and it is in these scenes that so much is revealed about these characters, their nature, their desires and their true heart. Yes…heart. As I mentioned in my review of earlier books, what is the biggest surprise of this series is the heart of these characters and the love they have for one another. Even when you want to smack one of them upside the head… *coughs…KINZER* it is moments later that your heart melts for them just as hard.

 

Trey might have the biggest cock in the series, but it is no match for his heart. I swear the love expressed here between him and His Kid is some of the best moments of the book. And yet, Hayde and what he endures for the love of his life, is equally emotional.

 

EMOTIONAL.

 

Treycore could hear his body in a way he couldn’t describe, he could feel a part of Kid he seemed to only have access to when they fucked. It was what had bonded them, some connection that was so much more profound than anything they could communicate with words.

 

 

He’d lived a long life…a life of aching that only grew and intensified with every passing day. However, as much as he felt like it could be worth it to end it all, there was a reason to live: for Kinzer.

 

GAAAAAHHH…

 

While your ass may hurt, my gawd, these characters feel…they want the pain…they need the pain and it is in these moments that they…live. And I loved how in this installment we got more of their internal struggles, insights and feelings than we have previously.

 

Immortals had a taste for something a little different than mortals. Pleasure was one thing, but the combination of pain and pleasure and the nuances in between were far more appealing.

 

 

“In some ways, the pain is the only thing left to remind me I’m still alive."

 

Another aspect of this one are the numerous WTF moments involving creatures and torture elements that are just so mind-blowingly crazy…including one strap on that is a mix of “Seven” and Lucille from The Walking Dead…

 

 

…and regardless of how crazy…I just couldn’t help the shit eating grin that appeared on my face.

 

 

Because really...Devon came up with this stuff...and I love it!!!

 

Add to all this…new characters we love to hate… Aerysn and Quintz are both amazing additions to this series. Can you trust them or not? Like with previous installments…you never really now.

 

This is a series in which you need to put aside your mortal ideas of relationships, of religion and of sex and just immerse yourself into this world…one that is fantastically developed and explored by one unbelievably creative mind.

 

**Highly Recommended**

Jared's Fulfillment
Jared's Fulfillment - Riley Hart

“How did I survive without you?”

The truth was, that’s all either of us had done without each other—survived. Now, we lived.

 

First let me say that this is not a story for every reader, just like BDSM is not something every person understands or participates in.  But what we can do as readers is be understanding, become more knowledgeable and push ourselves outside of our comfort zones at times and see that what may not be right for some is right for others. It is what makes us each unique.  Nothing should be wrong that feels right.

 

Riley Hart as an author went there with Jared and Kieran’s journey.  And after reading her note to her Readers at the beginning of this book, I gained even more respect for her as an author.  She took on something so different from anything else she had ever written.  She stepped outside of the normal MM Romance parameters or broke a few “romance rules”, as she states, and that takes such strength to do so.

 

“I followed my heart in this book. I stayed true to how the story came to me, no matter where it took me. Love is a universal emotion but there are no rules to it either. No matter how many people experience it, no one experiences it that same. As long as it’s consensual and between adults there’s no wrong way to love. This is their way.” – Riley Hart

 

What transpires within these pages is quite beautiful.  It is a journey.  It is discovery.  And while some acts in this story are still so outside of my realm of understanding and comfort zone, Riley did so with a commitment to these characters and what they needed. 

 

I am not about to spoil anything about this journey…it is one that should you choose to take on, do so with an open mind…with love and understanding.  In the end, I think you too will fall in love with these amazing men and their story.

 

I do desperately want more in this series and hope that we eventually get more of Marco and as Dana suggested on FB, perhaps Charlie’s story as well.

Kane's Awakening
Kane's Awakening - Jaclyn Osborn

After months of teasing, postings about her discussions with Kane, and images of these two characters, we finally got an early release for this third installment in the Awakening Series.  While this can be read as a standalone, the characters from the other books make appearances.  The other two books were good. I loved Michael, probably the best, as a character, but Jackson was a perfect match for dear Zach.  And while both books were entertaining, neither held the grit that this one did for me.  Part of it may be that I immediately fell hard for both characters.  From their initial meeting, they were undeniably explosive together.

 

Kane was perfectly portrayed as an abused man with so many emotional walls. After a quite abusive relationship in his teen years, he shut himself completely off from any type of emotional connection with anyone and it is not until Ryker that the walls start to shatter. Ryker is just the perfect pairing for being able to see through the bullshit and see into the truth that is in Kane’s heart.

 

I’d built a wall around my heart and locked it inside an impenetrable barrier, but he seemed to have the damn key.

 

  

Ryker…absolutely perfect image.

 

There are some rough scenes between these two. Some harsh words and difficult situations and there are moments when you want to smack Kane upside the head and make him see reason. But there are the tender aww moments too that make you see inside of Kane and see exactly what Ryker sees.  #singlerose

 

And while there is the infamous drama around 85%...it worked for me.  There were issues and doubts from both parties and again trust is something that does not come easily for some and with Ryker’s history it was something that needed to be addressed.

 

Overall, this was just so well-crafted and told in such a beautiful way.  They grew as a couple and formed such a strong relationship knowing and loving the bad with the good.  It worked.

 

“Because dammit, Kane, you’re all I want. You are everything in a man that infuriates the hell out of me, but I keep coming back for more. Even though you’re stubborn and have asshole tendencies… even though you’re unfiltered and arrogant… I see you. The real you.” He smiled before pressing our heads together. “I’m aware of how stupid that sounds, but it’s true. There are moments when you look at me where I see your kind heart and your passion. Sometimes there’s a light in your eyes after I kiss you, one that you then hide.”

I couldn’t speak, so I stayed quiet and just let him do the talking.

“And the way I feel around you is unlike anything I’ve ever felt before,” he continued, pulling back and looking into my eyes. “I can’t get you out of my head, and I’m tired of fighting it. You might be an asshole… but I want you to be my asshole.”

 

And an asshole you can’t help but love to pieces.

 

Ryker smiled. “You ramble a lot when you’re nervous.”

“I’m not nervous.” I looked into his blue eyes and felt my heart twinge. He was too damn handsome. “Okay, maybe I am a little. Throwing you on the bed and fucking you senseless is easy, but taking you out to dinner makes my palms all sweaty.”

 

 

I adored the relationships they held with their families as well.  And while unconventional, everything seemed so genuine and real.  As for Devon…I wanted to kick his ass but I also kinda want his “Awakening” as well.  LOL He has a story to tell for sure.

 

And as a sidenote, I loved the addition of the relationship with Nemesis.  Such a beautiful way to show the love and understanding Kane has in his heart and a sort of recognition of the life he has had.  He is to Nem as Ryker is to him.  Heartwarming to say the least.

Reading progress update: I've read 85%.
Shiver - Brooke Blaine,Ella Frank

Pale faces…

Blank eyes…

A face devoid of any emotion because the one I took the journey with no longer lived and walked beside me with the darkest secret a soul could house.

That was what hell looked like. I knew because I’d been there before, only to emerge from it more broken than I’d been going in, and alone. I couldn’t forget that. The first and only other time it had happened, I had emerged from the most corrupt part of my being—alone.

 

Gaaaaaahhhh.  I fucking love this book!!!

Reading progress update: I've read 64%.
Shiver - Brooke Blaine,Ella Frank

Oh God, this is crazy… And even though I held the power to stop what was happening, there was no way I was uttering my safe word. I wanted to see how far he’d go, and he was trusting that I could handle it. I wouldn’t let him down, and what was more, I…wanted it. The pain. The pleasure I knew would eventually come. Use me
