review 2014-09-02 17:58
Bareback - Chris Owen

Nope, this book was not for me. As many reviewers have said, the first 50% - 60% was all sex. This would be ok, if the sex advanced the plot or the characters, but it didn't. Plus, it was boring, and as you can imagine, repetitive. Once any semblance of a plot appeared, it didn't matter because I didn't care about either of the characters. I thought the so-called problems Jake and Tor had were inadequately portrayed. There were a couple of references of Jake ignoring Tor's tantrums, and of course there was very little communication, but we didn't see much first hand. 

Then all of a sudden, after years of being in involved, Tor cheats. 

(spoiler show)

At this point, I still didn't have an emotional connection to either Tor or Jake, and because the author skipped ahead in time and bypassed years of their relationship, I felt this was thrown in for shock value more than anything else. 

I thought Jake's reaction felt genuine, and I'm glad he took some responsibility, but it felt forced and very unlike Jake. It's one thing to see your faults and acknowledge them, but Jake seemed to take full responsibility and that is just ridiculous. Then at the end, the author tries to shift the blame off Tor even more? That was the last straw. I don't want to be pushed into how I should feel about a character, and that's what I felt this author was doing. Both men had baggage, and both men screwed up, that's it.

I will now wash my hands of Tor and Jake :)

[REVIEW] The Pet Whisperer by liliaeth

The Pet WhispererThe Pet Whisperer by liliaeth
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
Read from April 05 to 08, 2014 — I own a copy, read count: 1



What a Horrifying and Disturbing Story! I have been forcefully defiled. Mind Raped!

I admit it does have some entertainment value, but the munching on humans killed me. I mean I love the angst and liked the wicked pet training, but.... PLEASE! DO NOT EAT PEOPLE! Argh!

Humans as main course on the dining table of Gods. *dying* Gods hunting humans as food, even the children aren't safe. *dies in agony* Keeping humans as livestock for their juicy meat. *am so dead* Some of luckier ones are kept as household slaves, and the luckiest are those pretty ones which the Gods kept as eye-candies aka pets. The pets aren't exactly safe from ending up on the table as well. Da fuq!

How I wish this story could just focus on the pet training and leave out the grisly stuff. Each time I think of it... I.... *pukes everywhere* The slaughter of innocents both angers and sickens me so much I could feel my soul burning at the atrocities happening at every turn of the story. The author is sure brave and daring but too over-the-top with the horror aspect, it squicked me out even knowing she might be trying to deliver her message on animal abuse and to encourage vegetarianism.

The thing is, this story is utterly disturbing and horrifying as the amount of outright cannibalism overshadowed the pet training aspect eventhough petplay should be the main focus of this story as per suggested by its title and blurb. I kept on reading this morbid tale because I couldn't stop until I find out what would happen to Dean at the end.

WARNING: You really can't unseen what you have seen. For sure this is NOT for the faint-of-heart unless you are into gore and cannibalism. Beware of being eaten alive while kicking and screaming even your soul aren't spared. If you could curb your curiosity, I would advice you to stay away from this. The blurb didn't have any warning on the extreme cannibalism. I did blame myself for not checking out the story tags throughly before diving into it.

I am pretty sure that title and blurb would potentially leads unsuspecting readers who are looking forward to some petplay fun with added bonus of the famous Castiel-Dean pairing into the darkest void of evil and then gets drown in human misery so great one would felt scarred for life; speaking from the view of a traumatized reader. I have no way out now, it's too late for me. Go safe yourself!

Da fuq I've just read. @_@;
I need fluff pronto!

THE RATING
I am giving this a 2 stars not entirely because of the disturbing nature of the in-depth cannibalism, it is also due to the quality of the writing itself. There are parts where the plots fails and the characters has OOC moments here and there. I am also deducting points for not staying focus on the promised petplay theme. To be clear, I did appreciate the parts on the pet training and the melding of multiple mythologies with modern religion.

To put it in other words, this story is as entertaining as an intense nightmare you fought to wake up from.

[REVIEW] Hotel of Lost Souls (The Lost Humanity #1) by H.S. Kallinger
Hotel of Lost Souls (The Lost Humanity Series) - H.S. Kallinger

Hotel of Lost Souls by H.S. Kallinger

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Read from March 05 to 10, 2014 — I own a copy, read count: 1

 


Strong presence of Capture-bonding/Stockholm Syndrome with a Unique Menage Romance

Hotel of Lost Souls is the first book in The Lost Humanity series. It is a story about the survival and bonding of three early 20s students during their captivity as the blood and sex slaves of a master vampire. The dynamics they form intrigues me so much I am compelled to continue reading the story although finding the pace draggy due to excessive mundane activities described in painful details. I guess this is one of the many pitfalls a new author tends to find difficult to avoid. Writing the right balance of details aren't an easy feat. Readers would scorn those with too little details as well as those that had too much in it. That's where practice and experience comes in as well as the ability to accept and listen to feedbacks, the positive ones as well as the negative ones. Life is a life-long learning experience after all. One would only excel if one could recognise and acknowledge their own weaknesses and not be afraid to change it.

Eventhough this book has a central vampirism theme it wasn't overly focused on it. We do still get snippets of their presence and background story every now and then, so no worries about that. The story is really all about the relationship between fellow captives and their kidnapper cum master cum owner. I am fascinated with the captives gradual progress in developing a strong bond with their captor in the form of Stockholm Syndrome. I am still unsure if what is between (view spoiler)[Zack and Lukas and Sarah and Lukas is real love. (hide spoiler)] It could well be the effect of falsehood their subconscious mind fashioned just to stay safe and pain free.

The Stockholm Syndrome is a psychological phenomenon I have always find to be utterly intriguing. It's the mysterious part of being human and how vulnerable we really are. When left in a hopeless situation and given the right incentive, one could bend to any extreme just to find that bit of comfort even when it was offered by your own abuser. These abused victims tends to find excuses for the abuser and would strongly believe whatever punishment on them are their of own fault and their abuser is only doing it for their own good out of love for them. The abused would usually choose to submit to the abuser because it felt safer and easier to do so than a confrontation. This isn't baseless guesswork on my part, I have been an abused victim before although not a very physical one but the damage to the soul is not something easy to erase or comprehend. I have lived and I have learned, the hard way. Please note that what I am saying here are only based on my personal experience therefore I am not implying it is the same for everyone. Do you know what is the saddest part? The saddest part was when the abuser didn't even know what was done to me was considered as abuse and I myself was too blind to see that.

I bet Lukas the captor in this story knows exactly what he is doing and trying to achieve. That whipping boy incident was a good proof of how he intents to condition his pets. Zack, Sarah and Jamie was confine in a gilded cage in the form of an upscale hotel complete with all the pampering amenities at their disposal in exchange of their freedom. Lukas would lavish them with expensive gifts and personal attention when they behave themselves. Bad behaviors are promptly nipped at the bud with effective physical punishments that also involves some manipulative mental persuasion of the importance of playing by the rules. Lukas is such a cunning one. Having lived for hundreds of years he should be smarter than most humans with the kind of experiences he had gone through.

Another point of interest was the unique menage and the sexual relationships between this group of youngsters and their master. This dynamic group consists of bisexuals and lesbians. So we get hetero, gay and lesbian sex in one swoop. That's pretty rare right? They even had an orgy with two guys and two girls enthusiastically going at each other. They were satisfyingly plugged by one another... uhmm except one the lesbian and the last guy behind the train of sexy sweaty bodies of course. Not enough penises to do all the plugging and thrusting considering the number of wanting holes we have here.

I think I have a love-hate thing going on with this book. I nearly DNF it due to the draggy pace. Yet there are parts that absorbs my attention and fueled my wish to know more. Like that unique foursome relationship and the captive cum abused victims mentality.

To sum up, the story is a promising one and the author has talent but needed further polishing to shine better. I did have issues with the story's delivery style but it could be down to personal preference I guess. More importantly, I am entertained enough to want to read the next installment of this series. In fact, I have already bought it and synced it to my reading device. I will be continuing these youngster's adventure and journey with their master in book two, Pet and three, Bridges soon.

News-media segments about modern slavery are short and quickly forgotten by the average Joe or Jane. But it's out there. So are vampires. They're known, legal citizens—and they aren't the only relic from the past still alive and well. Their victims certainly don't have the opportunity to forget that slavery is still a very real problem.

On a train to Florida's tourist traps, Zack Henderson, an EMT in training, meets college students Sarah Gallagher and Jamie Adams. They're just hoping for a break from the tedium of college tests and professors. They can never imagine what is in store for them when vampires show up to take over their lives. When the smoke clears, they are left wondering: Did they really survive?

An emotional roller coaster
Broken Halo - Zoey Marcel

3.5

 

*Book source ~ Many thanks to Pink Flamingo for providing a review copy in exchange for providing an honest review.

 

Sonya is a Guardian Angel and Nimbus is a Fallen and an incubus. When they were both angels Sonya considered Nimbus her best friend. When he joined Lucifer she was devastated. Thousands of years have gone by since his fall and still she loves him even though he’s a demon and has done evil. When Nimbus arranges her fall, she fights against him even though she craves to give into him. It’s easy to fight an enemy. Not so easy to fight yourself or the one you love.

 

This is a wonderfully written paranormal erotica story. The emotional roller coaster that Sonya rides is fascinating to watch and while Nimbus is a demon filled to the brim with evil he has a soft spot for Sonya the size of the Universe. The BDSM scenes are varied and at times brutal for those who prefer lighter erotica yet they are still wonderfully written.

 

The reason that I gave this only 3.5 is because I’m coming to realize that submissive stories told from the sub’s POV aren’t really my favorite. I am not a submissive in any way. I much prefer reading from the Dominant’s POV and though this story does switch between Sonya and Nimbus, the majority is told from Sonya’s POV. Plus, Sonya’s constant vacillating between submitting and running away started to get on my nerves. I am curious as to where this series is headed since the ending took me by surprise. What is Sonya going to do next and how will she fare in her new role?

[REVIEW] Luke's Brutal Abduction (The Whole Story) by Brad Vance

Luke's Brutal Abduction - The Whole Story (Luke's Brutal Abduction, #1-5)Luke's Brutal Abduction - The Whole Story by Brad Vance
My rating: 3.8 of 5 stars

Recommended by: Vivian Archer
Recommended for: Hardcore BDSM aficionados

Read from November 10 to 14, 2013 — I own a copy (Got it free on 25-Oct-2013 from Smashwords with promo coupon)

 

 

 

3.8 Stars. Love the Rawness, the Wildness and all that Rough Manhandling.

I find the total power exchange between Luke and Slader very arousing. Luke's total devotion and surrender to his master was what makes all those hardcore BDSM sessions between them so hot. Luke Mitchum worship Slader Jacobs like a god. He would lick the ground Slader walks on if that the only thing that would get his master's attention.

Subconsciously, Luke has been seeking for someone worthy of his trust, someone whom he could respect and let himself go completely. Slader, a no-nonsense ex-Marine was the only master Luke would and could surrender himself completely.

 

[ "This whole slave thing was not natural to him; he knew guys who’d get down on the ground and slobber for anyone in a bar who called himself a “master,” but not Luke, no way. It took someone of Slader’s magnitude – his handsome face, his chiseled bod, his overall badassery, to force, yes, force Luke to become someone else if he wanted to have more of Slader. ]

 

I like that Luke is not a wimpy sub, knows what he wants and would go all out to get it.
[ Since that night he’d learned what intimacy could be, what heights of physical intensity he could reach with a single man, if that man was dedicated to the craft of sex, the art of sadism, and Luke was his sole canvas. ]

Needless to say, Slader is exactly the type of master to fulfill Luke's fantasy to be used and abused hard.


It was a delight to watch Luke's pursue of Slader and his sweet surrender at the domineering hands of his badass master. Me thinks, Super Masochist Luke and Baddass PainGyver Slader is a match made in heaven. They are truly an unconventional couple. Truthfully, I was rather surprised to find romance in it and finding it kind of sweet too. 

 

I liked this quote very much but it is a tad spoilerish:
[ It was a chain. A slender, silver chain, but a chain nonetheless. Slader’s eyes drilled his. “You put this on, you’re committing to more than just a fling in my basement. You put this on, and you’re mine. Maybe I don’t call you for weeks. Maybe I make you service my crew again. Maybe I cut that boot up and serve it to you. Maybe I take you to Folsom Street Fair and make you my bitch in front of God and everyone. But…” he held up a hand. “But I also take care of you. I make you cum. I don’t touch another man, and neither do you, unless I make you.” He flushed. “I don’t know about this love shit. But this is what I can offer now. Me. Take me or leave me, as I am.” ]

I love every session these two had together. And there's never a dull moment in this book. It was a very engrossing read indeed. The author is good at building up tension and getting his reader's adrenaline pumping; that kidnap scene really excites me much and then there's the much sought after subsequent gangbanging episode which Luke was totally drooling over. Lol. Besides that, the good characterization is also commendable as they are very realistic to me.

This book oozes masculinity and I find that a refreshing change from the usual fare. What I didn't like much was the fluid exchange kink - ewwwweee.... so not my thing although I am fine with the Golden Showers.

I think those who read this story by installments might miss the slow burn romance these two characters had as it was rather subtle. Therefore it is best to read the bundled version instead. Oh, and don't let that jarring title stop you from reading this. The title might sound harsh but it is all consensual play here; Kinky randy men playing with each other and having a blast.

As a side note, this book reminds me much of Master's Dungeon by Alex Morgan as the submissive protagonist in it was somewhat similar to Luke when it comes to the level of submission and devotion to his master. The masters in both stories are harsh and badass. However, Master's Dungeon is definitely on the extreme end - click here to know what I mean about that book.
