NSFW: For those who like it twisted...M. Caspian always gets the tone right.
The Salt of Your Tears - M. Caspian

For the dudes and dudettes who like it extremely dark and kinky!

Twisted folks step right on up!

 

 

In His Skin - 4 Hearts


A mute submissive is given the world by his Master, but it comes with a price.


Warning: do not enter if you can't handle pain play, blood play, sharing amongst partners and piercing certain sensitive parts.

 

 

Dylan yearns to please his master Harrison. He tries his hardest to follow his rules and be the best that he can be. But he yearns for something...the sea.

 

Dylan doesn't have to cook or clean. All he has to do is please Harrison, obviously in the bedroom. Though he never utters a word throughout the story, Dylan's thoughts and emotions were very present. The story is slightly mysterious as well as erotic. Who Dylan is and how he came to be with Harrison is the leading the question that pulled me into the story.

 

I'm not one for pain play, so not on #TeamPain. (#Team Lube represent!) But the verbal humiliation helped ease my squickiness. And when  Harrison and Dylan are alone together, the trademark Caspian possessiveness came tot he forefront, where hot breaths and threats are prevalent.

 

"Did your hole get enough tonight? Oh, no, wait, it didn't because I haven't fucked you yet. Only me, you hear me? It's only me who gets to have you."

 

That I liked. I figured out the mystery close to the end. The writing read poetic and a little somber at times. But I was super happy with the concept. It's my kind of paranormal.

 

 

 

At the end, Dylan prioritized what he needed the most. I'd like to think was a HEA.

 

Please heed the warnings before trying.

 

Asking For It - 5 Hearts

 

CHEESUS AND CRACKERS! THIS IS LIKE IT WAS WRITTEN FOR ME!

 

 

 

7+k words - I kid you not, I have about half of this story highlighted.  

"Bet you want it all the time, don't you, a boy like you? I'll have to visit you at work on your lunch break, gag you and tie your hands in the men's room, turn you around in a stall and fuck you 'til you're crying, then make you go back to your afternoon meeting with my seed dripping out of you."

 

 

 

All my favorites words came to play: cockslut, cunt, fuckboy!

 

Pornupcopia jackpot! Filth! Smut at its finest!

 

Cole needs. He needs bad. The 22 year old has been a good boy. He's repressed at work, doesn't try to explore the kink, the need in him. And when he tries to finally do something about it with a date with a Daddy type from online, he doesn't meet with much success.

 

Or does he?

"Your eyes are hungry, did you know that?"

Bar owner and bartender Garrett sees everything that night. And answers the body call Cole has going on.

 

"But you still need, don't you? It's okay boy. You've found me now."

 

Semi-public sex, humiliation dirty talk, possessive alpha Dom...I just don't where to begin on the high points.

 

The thrill Cole feels, the slight, miniscule dub-con feel to it all...oh the words.

 

If only that pool table could talk.

"I can't wait to fuck you raw, watch you push my cum out, see it dripping out of your hole."

Cole gets shown, owned and is so satisfied by Garret, any reservation has flew the coop.

 

And I imagine a very cum filled happy ending. From random hookup to lasting D/s relationship...

 

 

 

Aces in my book! ;)

Re-read worthy for sure!

 

 

A Song in the Blood - 4.5 Hearts

 

Where a masochist with a penchant for blood play finally meets his match.

 

 

Here's the thing. I started this a little confuzzled.

 

Then is as I read along I released this was “It is Our Bounden Duty To Protect The Empire”. (Love this new title BTW) and the tags helped make it clearer.

 

The tags: gun play, extreme violence, paranormal, power exchange, HEA, historical setting, Kiwi MC, extreme violence. All acts are consensual by the way.

 

Set after the turn of the 20th century, Corran McKenzie is a Kiwi soldier slowly dying in the African desert. He's picked up a friend by the name of Sephtis. And Sephtis watches and goads the young man as his will to live keeps him going.

 

Now if you look up the name Sephtis, you'll see exactly who Septhis is. Or I should say what he represents. Clever, clever, author. (It's a reason why I rated so high) We get a case study of Corran's life and the start of when he craved real pain and couldn't have his needs fulfilled.

"Your want is delicious."

All he needs is to make it hurt, to bleed.

 

Sephtis scratches that unfathomable itch. The story starts in 1902 and carries on into present day. There are erotic moments and scenes...like this:

 

 

Add that to the mindfuckery and it's a hot little number.

"Did you know your soul hungers? No wonder I heard you all the way out here in the middle of nowhere."

It reminded me of Deckard's "Better The Devil You Know", which had similar depravity, a witty entity and crisp writing.


Recommended for readers who can actually handle the tags, DMC and those who like extreme dark mixed in with their kink.

Stereotypes in insta-love. Ho hum.
Permanent Ink - Jaime Samms
A Hearts On Fire Review

TWO HEARTS--The re-release of Permanent Ink by Jaime Samms is a short story that features a very quick pairing between white college basketball player Eric and black tatted/pierced ex-con Dwayne. Eric's best friend is Dwayne's cousin, Angel, meaning they knew of each other but never formally hung out. Eric judges Dwayne based on his outward appearance, assuming the worst. Though Dwayne doesn't help Eric's preconception in the beginning of the short when he brags about his ass pain from a hookup the night before. The two start on the wrong foot and it quickly turns around into a HEA.

Race is an important factor in this short. And unfortunately, so are a few stereotypes.

This is a re-release, I haven't read the original version but I'm going to take a stab that not much changed. Though the time period could be implied as modern day, it read more like any reference to the time period was vaguely mentioned. An example, Dwayne is supposed to look like a "thug" with cornrows and beads because he came from the hood and had to wear the "thug" exterior to protect himself on the "inside".

*sigh*

I just can't buy the characterization as justification for writing Dwayne this way. I'm unsure if the story is supposed to be based in the UK or America, so it could help me reference the characters. Maybe that's how the "thugs" dress and act in a different part of the world? *shrug*

I think I see what the author was going for, opposites attract insta-love romance but the beginning was rough. I didn't like Eric. He was privileged and didn't really come away as a better person in the end. Dwayne read more like 2-D character who had past rape added to his life to give depth?

Past rape was given as the reason for the "armor" of tattoos and 'tough persona....why have him brag about sleeping around if he has a sexual hang up (about bottoming). There were contradicting factors - hooking up with random men to never having sex since jail.

Didn't make the impact it tried to go for.

My second biggest gripe (after poor characterization) is if this was reedited, why not make it read more current? Angel tried to give something about race relations when he tried to give a teaching moment with Eric. But it kinda fell off to the wayside. Story is too short to try and encompass crime, rape PTSD. Not a fan of the way it was written or presented.

The one sex scene was a bust because the main characters read awkward and acted awkward to me. Example, it'd be a kiss then stall then kiss then pause...not smooth writing. Along with the vagueness in the writing.

I've read this author in the past. Samms's books have a tendency to be full of angst. I don't think the topics added to make the story...interesting (for lack of a better word) was needed.

How could the story have been better? More length, show how the two connected rather than insta-love over time. There were very tiny bits of that that just didn't go anywhere.

Didn't like Eric by the end - he still read like a privileged rich kid. I doubt he grew or will grow from his relationship with Dwayne. Dwayne could do so much better.

Not recommended.

Wisecracks & a New Adult alt Scooby Gang makes a cute read...
High Contrast (Evolution Ink) - Tess Bowery
3.75 HEARTS--If you love wisecracks, an ensemble supporting cast that read like an alternative Scooby gang and piercings...a lot of piercings with a slow burn romance between comic lovers mixed in...let me introduce you to Tess Bowery's High Contrast (Evolution Ink #1), her first published contemporary.




Jacob Shain is the less cooler twin. He's an unpaid marketing intern to his older twin's tattoo artist. Jacob is used to his role in life, he's fine with it. Until he lays his eyes on his brother's new piercer, Cody Turner. He's larger, blonde, tattooed and pierced. Basically, he's me and Jacob's walking dream (oh boy was he...*hint* piercings upstairs matches downstairs.



Whoops...getting ahead of myself. Pierced fans...gather closer. Seriously.

Jacob is flusters in major geekery for Cody. But Cody is damaged soul, has baggage and bad experiences under his belt that puts Jacob securely in the friend zone. This lasts for a long time. Cody has secrets, no one wouldn't understand, yadda yadda cry me a river. Jacob wants to be Cody's everything and befriends the guy. They share so many interests, but don't say much to take their friendship to the next level.

While the romance slowly burned at the lowest heat in the first half, Jacob's brother and his tattoo shop friends are a crew of sorts. It's stated that Jacob couldn't make other friends than these Evolution Ink shop workers but he didn't read resigned to have them as his friends. In fact, the group read very close like a family, like a team. Any thing that happens to one, seemed to involve them all.

Possible Triggers: Drug Use, Past Abuse (vaguely mentioned & off page, some violence)

The team mentality lends itself into the other major arc of the story since the gang has to solve who is behind ratting to the cops, saving a damaged team member, etc. I felt like I was possibly about the alt Scooby gang rather than the couple in the first half.

The last 40% or so? Made up for the slight. The build was worth it.




Knowing that High Contrast has fan fiction roots made a major difference for me while reading. (This isn't a secret.) It helped put some of the parts where reality needed to be suspended into perspective. I rated this a little higher after learning about its roots like why the slow burn was so slow. It was due to what I dub fan fic drag - the writer drags out the inevitable for chapters upon chapter, for numerous weeks for maximum readership.

Such was the case in here. All systems were go, words were exchanged, just about everyone comments on Jacob and Cody's non-movement to the next phase. A warning for those not too keen on supporting characters lending their two cents.

There were issues for me even though I enjoyed the couple.

The suspense/action....eh. They aren't super heroes, so I'm not sold on every day new adults jumping into the fray against mobs and drug lords. Or breaking and entering because the cops aren't to be trusted etc. I was on board up until the arrest aftermath...after that, things got a little pear shaped in the believability spectrum. For the fandom? Totally works and it's clever how their characteristics are tied into "every day" folks.

The mannerisms...sometimes the inner voices and facial expressions were read too eerily for contemp. You can totally read expressions off of someone's face but sometimes the inner dialogue read like the characters were mind readers

The last 10-15% - it read like a comic book. (The entire story did TBH) But the showdown, the double identities, the 'violence', dealing with a work bully, etc...my reality suspension rubber snapped here and there. Pair that with the NYC setting, something was off kilter for me here. It didn't seem as...contemporary. More like AU.

Cody...on the surface, he's the total package. And I wouldn't categorize him as a "bad boy". He's had a crap life and only shitty options available. Something that read a little off for me was the past relationship and the way the abuse (off page) didn't seem to affect as much as he tried to portray. The author does a decent enough of laying the groundwork as to why Cody is tight lipped...but somewhere in the last third of the story...it was more like lip service than characteristics. I still like him though. (Even if there weren't any piercings)

But...the sweet romance between two good, geeky guys? The hot sex? THE PIERCINGS?! *coughs* Frenum ladder (swoon), Prince Albert (swoon^2), hip, lip, tongue and ear piercings on top of the tatts and scars?  (There was scarification and a mention or two of suspension)



Totally worth the read.

I think the romance part was stronger than the crime/suspense. The wisecracks were a little too thick for me. I think snark loving readers should totally check this out. For me the funny can be laid on too thick and I don't mind if the dialogue didn't read like smart alecky bumper stickers. But my humor needs might be as simpatico as potential readers. Take the humor gripe with a grain of salt.

I'm definitely checking out the next book in the series. I'm hoping it might be starring a hothead and a lawyer.

The writing was engaging, even if sometime it went over my head. I liked the characters.

I recommend this to fan fic readers, especially comic fandoms, new adult readers who prefer their main characters to really get to know one another before being intimate and Prince Albert fans.

Because royalty and all that jazz. ;P

Tempting Ecstasy/Piercing Ecstasy
Tempting Ecstasy - Setta Jay
Piercing Ecstasy - Setta Jay

(I'm going to be reviewing Tempting Ecastasy & Piercing Ecstasy together because I read them together, and am kinda trying to get them out of the way because the series is getting more and more triggery/disturbing as each book passes)

 

In Tempting Ecstasy, the fourth book in Setta Jay's Guardians of the Realm series. In each previous novel, the focus has been on a specific male, and his mate. This book is no different. This one focuses of Conn and his mate Dacia.

 

Dacia is an Immortal, and she knows there are others, but she has no idea how to find them. Her family has been living on Earth, quietly flying under the notice of other Immortals. When Conn scents her after the explosion at Cynthia's compound, he is bound to find her, at risk of serious pain.

 

This book was a little different, as it focused more on Dacia, and her needs. She didn't allow Conn to claim her right away. She forced him to "play it cool" until she learned more about Immortals, Guardians, the Realms, and the responsibilities that come with being an Immortal and the mate of a Guardian. With Dacia being Immortal, she also has mating frenzy, so she knows exactly what Conn is going through in his physical need to claim her. That was a little different, and made this book a little more palatable. Not too terribly much, as there was still kidnapping of Dacia and her sisters, the mild mental abuse of Dacia by Conn, and the overwhelming "Alpha Male" atmosphere of the book, and the entire series. But it was a little better. Still great, hot smut. But the storyline is starting to get a little old.

 

Piercing Ecstasy is the story of Jax and Ileana. Jax is pretty typical Setta Jay alpha male...Tall, chiseled, devastatingly handsome, yadda yadda yadda. Ileana is a damaged little package though. Seriously damaged and broken. Her parents were murdered in order to protect her from being experimented on because she has no scent to other Immortals. So she's untrackable. She can spell herself to change her hair and eye color to blend in anywhere. She actually is the one who find her mate in Jax first. She touches him to help further her cause of revenge, and starts the wheels of mating into motion.

 

That's a little different in the series, with Ileana being given the decision of touching her mate, or helping herself. Se seems to be the most developed mate character so far, and isn't quite as easily manipulated by the Guardians. That was a little refreshing, but there is still the mental abuse, the manipulation, and the overbearing assholeness of her alpha male.

 

I think this is one of the better ones so far, because Ileana is an actual character. She's got a reason to be wary, to not trust the Guardians, to want to do things her way. And she tries to play the Guardians into helping her cause. She doesn't really succeed, of course, because that'd change the series too much, and Ms Jay's audience doesn't want much deviation from her oh so naughty males, and the females they dominate. The smut is strong, and it's still very appealing for the fantastic deliciousness that Ms Jay writes into all her books.

Good Story and Characters
Piercing Ecstasy - Setta Jay

Jax is one of the Guardians of the Realms. He’s known as the one with the biggest sexual appetite and even has his own harem. When his brothers mysteriously start finding their mates, he gets tired of being a sexual tool who is continually unsatisfied and hopes that he’s the next to find his mate. He’s just not sure if she’d be enough to sustain his appetite. Ileana has been a shadow her very long life, ferreting out secrets while she hopes for revenge for her parents’ deaths. When Jax finds her while she’s on a stake-out, she’s not happy about having a mate, even though she’s unable to deny the pull.

As with the other books in this series, this story was pretty good. I just had a little problem with the Jax that was seen in previous books to this Jax, the much more serious and concentrated Jax. I read through it pretty quickly and enjoyed the overall storyline that follows all of the books in this series. I highly recommend.
