My life is perfect, but my story isn’t.
My tastes are frowned upon.
However, I don’t allow society to dictate my proclivities.
 
I’m cruel. I’m cold. I’m heartless.
The list of submissives wanting me to train them is endless.
But when two of my newest students walk in, I’m challenged in every way.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
We really are loving this on going series.This current story revolving around Oliver and Chance and Cayleigh was and intense one.
 
I have to say that we were instantly were drawn to Oliver and the darkness and rage he carries around with him.I will say that Oliver is a volatile character who most of the time keeps himself in check but,once he loses control we can be one mighty scary individual.
 
We love stories that are dark and intense as keeps your interest from the onset of the story but, they are also heart wrenching and emotional and its character's filled with layers that need to be peeled back in order to penetrate their armor. My heart broke for these character's for all they have suffered and how they have chosen to deal with their pain.For Cayleigh and Chance and Oliver have dealt with their demons by living the bdsm lifestyle it's their coping mechanism for them all but, for Oliver its a good possibility it saved his life.Oliver is called the Master and he is a Dom and a Sadist who teaches and guides men and women to explore their sexuality and for them to find their right path in order to take care of their wants and needs.
 
Cayleigh and Chance have become Olivers students and for a month he will train them to be his subs.For me and this usual pairing is just what Oliver needed to shake up his controlled and lonely life up just a bit.Oliver has been doing the Dom Master Sadist things for a lot of years and never has one of his students been able to make him feel anything until these two come along.Chance is already half in love with Oliver who can either be a Switch or a Submissive and Cayleigh just needs to explore her sexual desires in order to own what she needs sexually to be happy but, also be able to move on from her past and although hers are not as dark as Oliver's or Chance's and her tragedies have not kept her being unable to love those around her and is open to loving someone again and being loved in return.For me I believe Oliver needed these two to move on from his past as their is never a doubt that he has come to care for them but,he realizes early on that a poly relationship between the three would never work as Cayleigh needs more than he could ever give her but, Chance just might be the little bright light in his very dark world. I think Cayleigh is the buffer that Oliver needed to be able to explore more with Chance as she gave Oliver these little pushes in the right direction only in a way Cayleigh slyness can achieve but also come from true affection. lol
 
We really loved all the character's and we enjoyed the way the author brought the series to an ending.The story effected us emotionally and are heart went out time and time again for these character's each and every time another secret came to light for truly the hell both Chance and Oliver had been living in.The author also did an amazing job at showing us how these men suffered and how much in common they had without even knowing it but, for Chance he had the loving support of his sister Peyton to help deal with his demons where Oliver had nobody making them into completely different men and their outlook on life.
 
Overall the story was engaging and heart felt and was highly erotic and had some really intense bdsm scenes but, those scenes lead to healing oneself,learning to be able move on from ones past and letting yourself feel again also be able to love again as well as letting yourself be loved in return and about exploring your sexuality and taking those needs and wants and desires into consideration as they are a big part of the picture of you achieving your own happily ever after .
 
An awesome series not to be missed!

“The first time I laid eyes on you, I knew I was a goner. You’re the most loving, beautiful soul I’ve ever uncounted, and the sexiest man I have ever seen. You make my heart race just looking at you.”

 

Mike Williams knew from an early age he was joining the military. After meeting the sassy, sarcastic, and foul-mouthed Monique at a training course for the elite of the Australian Army, he was introduced to the man who would become his life and soul. Dave Harris was the most stunning man Mike had ever met. He was taken from the moment he met him, and he’d stop at nothing to have this man and make him his for the rest of his life. 

 

After a horrific event which changed his life, Mike left the military and joined Henderson Security. Life was good; life was quiet until it wasn’t.

 
Can Mike keep his man’s family safe and see the man he loved happy and healthy or would he fall down on the job?

 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Let's start off by saying this is a fairly new author for us a we are really loving the character's that she has created for us to fall in love with.
 
We got a glimpse in Tiny's/Monquie's story of Dave and Mike and even then we new we were going to love them in this current story just proved us right as we loved them together and their whirlwind romance took us on a incredible ride.
 
Favorite passage -  "Mike Williams knew from an early age he was joining the military. After meeting the sassy, sarcastic, and foul-mouthed Monique at a training course for the elite of the Australian Army, he was introduced to the man who would become his life and soul. Dave Harris was the most stunning man Mike had ever met. He was taken from the moment he met him, and he’d stop at nothing to have this man and make him his for the rest of his life."
 
When Tiny told Mike about her best friend Dave she knew right off the bat that they would be perfect for one another and she was right it was lust at first sight and pretty much love at first sight.These two were incredible together as they were a fun couple in and out of bed.Mike pretty much had a dominate personality and Dave a bit submissive so they were the perfect mix for one another but, Mike pretty much new right off the bat that the only time he would he dominating Dave would be in the bedroom. lol
 
Dave - We found him to be a sweetheart he had an amazing personality,he was funny,love-able, sweet, kind,was an amazing friend,loved with ones whole heart, sexy, and would give the shirt off his own back to help someone in need.
"We loved him!"
 
Mike- We loved the dominate sexy man who was smart and focused,love-able,an amazing friend,sweet,had an upbeat personality but, with all those sweet things we say about him he is lethal and deadly as well as protective and possessive of the ones he loves.
One thing that comes to mine when thinking about Mike is that he is just swoon worthy! lol
 
I really loved the entire story from beginning to end.I loved the romance that went on between Mike and Dave because they were hotter then Hell when they were together and had some super hot sexual encounters that were fan worthy for sure. Lol We love that Tiny and Mike created this amazing extended family with Rock and Mary after leaving the military .We loved all those ex solider's as they had wormed their way into our heart to.The plot was also full of tons of drama,loss,love,forgiveness,healing and we got a more in depth view of what Tiny's life and the hardships she really endured but, through it all she raised three beautiful smart kids.Tiny was definitely someone we fell in love with instantly.Most of all this was just an amazing story about family and love and that it doesn't have to be one about blood alone.
 
We loved the book from cover to cover and all the amazing character's it had and I am loving how the Henderson Security books are mixing with the Thorny Devils those members from the Thorny Devils are a hoot!
 
Looking forward to our next read in this on going series.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

MLJ lives in NSW, Australia, with her husband, three adult children, and six cats—yes, you heard that right, six.
 
Growing up in a huge family of eight kids was always noisy and didn’t give her enough alone time to unwind.
 
Books have always given her an outlet from the craziness that is her life. Nothing is better than curling up with a good story to take her mind off her surroundings.
 
As a new author, she hopes you enjoy her stories and that they help you get out of your world and into hers for a few hours.

Might possibly revisit in the future (DNF)
How to Stop Time - Matt Haig

This book was recommended to my by my bestie who probably knows better than most what my taste in literature is and she wasn't wrong with this one. However, I'm a fickle mood reader and when I picked up this book I just wasn't particularly interested in reading about the lives of these characters. The story follows a man named Tom who has a rare ability: he ages at an incredibly slow rate. The reader follows him from his birth up to the present where he is struggling with his centuries old existence and having to keep his secret (while trying to locate his estranged daughter). There's a secret society of those like him that are ruled over by a man who will do everything in his seemingly unlimited powers to keep their secret from being leaked. The issue I had wasn't that I didn't enjoy the narrative or its delivery but that once I put it down I didn't actively seek to pick it back up. (It was also on hold at the library so I didn't have long to languish over it.) I took that as a sign that this was one I'd have to revisit some time in the future. (haha time reference) Progress: I made it to page 127 out of 325.

Sass with a side of sober contemplation
Calypso - David Sedaris

Quick note from me: Eagle-eyed readers of the blog will notice that I said I would be covering The Bear and the Nightingale today but actually I'm going to be reviewing Calypso by David Sedaris. I was working off of my memory instead of my notes and that's how that little boo-boo occurred. At any rate, today's book is a real treat! Calypso is an example of dark humor at its best. It's organized into short stories that cover the complete gamut of familial drama coupled with the woes of middle age. Sedaris divides his time between his home in England and a beach-side getaway he purchased for his family to use in Emerald Isle (among other properties briefly mentioned). I loved the parts where he talked about his relationship with his partner Hugh (who I fell in love with immediately) and his fears that he'll poop in his pants and Hugh will leave him for someone else. It also turns out that he's obsessive about tracking his steps and cleaning up every single piece of litter in the English countryside. He's a quirky guy and I strongly identified with him. He also touches on the tragic death of his sister Tiffany and the contentious relationship he has with his father who is in his nineties and stubbornly refusing to accept help at home. It's sharp, witty, shocking, tender, and hilarious. I laughed out loud at quite a few of the anecdotal stories (wait til you read about their visit to Japan). This would make a great gift especially for friends or family who do a lot of travel as this would be excellent to read on a trip. 10/10

 

I also urge you to read this article from Variety which talks not only about the beach-side getaway that Sedaris talks about in Calypso but also about Sedaris in general. It's hilarious! (Read the footnotes.)

I guess Jughead is preferable to being called Forsythe Pendleton
Afterlife with Archie: Escape from Riverdale - Francesco Francavilla,Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa

Afterlife with Archie: Escape From Riverdale (issues 1-5) by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa was mentioned briefly in my review of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Vol 1 as it was created by the same author AND both books exist in the same twisted universe. Where Sabrina dwells in a world governed by dark magic and witches that do Satan's bidding Archie and his friends are living in a different kind of hell on earth. For those familiar with the comic strip featuring Archie, Betty, Veronica, and Jughead you're accustomed to 1950s nostalgia vibes of burgers at the diner and lovelorn glances across the football field. There's that in this iteration and a whole lot more. Aguirre-Sacasa must have tapped into that same dark vein that Stephen King has plumbed for years because Riverdale's residents are being plagued by the walking dead. I'M TALKING ZOMBIES, YA'LL. It all begins with Jughead's dog becoming infected and passing it to him through a bite until it spreads like an epidemic. (Remember the movie 28 Days Later?) Things come to a head at the school dance where of course Betty and Veronica are vying for Archie's attention so they don't immediately get that something is terribly wrong with their ol' pal Jughead. [A/N: I don't remember them being so catty but in this story they're doing anything and everything to catch this boy's attention even if they have to demean themselves to do it. It's actually pretty horrible how they treat each other and how absolutely ridiculous they make themselves. The boy ain't that great, ya know?] Things quickly devolved from there and it's a race against time as they and a few of their classmates try to find a place free of the undead creatures. It ends on a cliffhanger and volume two is in the works to be published next year so now is the time to get a head-start. Zombie and horror fans will delight in this series (as well as CAoS). For me it's a pretty solid 9/10 with a deduction for sexist/misogynistic depiction of female leads.
