Review: "Doctor Without Borders" (Groves' Anatomy, #4) by Scarlet Cox
Doctor Without Borders - Scarlet Cox

"You can't just... have sex with patients!"

"I can." Groves slid to his feet like a panther and circled Adam's desk. "And I'm going to have sex with you, Adam."

 

Yep, I'm giving a PWP four and half stars. Not because the writing or the plot (*snorts*) were such a revelation, but for what this was, - and let's say it together: "FILTHY PORN!" - it was perfectly fine.

 

Scarlet Cox managed to squeeze so much kink into only 26 pages that it was a true pleasure to read:

 

  • BDSM light
  • bondage
  • breath play
  • D/s
  • exhibitionism
  • first time gay virgin
  • GFY (it's ok when it's porn, put down your pitchforks!)
  • humiliation
  • spanking

 

And one my favorite tropes: THE AGE-GAP, with one of the MCs being in his early 30s whereas his boss (!!!) was a 57-year-old. *insert record scratch*

 

Awwwwww yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaah!

 

 

Another point: this was shockingly good writing for a PWP:

"He was so used to being in a position of authority that having someone strip him of his dignity and reduce him to a fuck toy was astoundingly, shamefully hedonistic."

Also kudos for the use of "fuck stick" as a euphemism for cock. Never heard that one before and I immediately fell in love with it.

 

So yeah, I was in fap heaven. FAP, I SAY.

 

This was honestly entertaining as fuck, so pulpy and fun.

 

And HAWT. You can only read this book while sitting alone and listening to Prince.

Review: "Training Complex" (Training Season, #2) by Leta Blake
Training Complex - Leta Blake

"Rob never broke down. He never needed help. He was the rock, and Matty was the bird who flew. It was the way it worked. But as it turned out, Matty was the bird that broke the rock's back."

 

This book exhausted me, and I so wanted to like it.

 

I loved the first book in this series, Training Season, so very much. In fact, I even rated it 5 stars and added it to my "favorites" shelf.

 

For me, it was the perfect mixture of funny and light-hearted in the first half and heartbreaking and moving in the second. Throw in some BDSM light elements for an amazing hurt/comfort and I was perfectly happy. Looking back, I should have been satisfied that it ended on such a perfect note and left it at that.

 

 

This book though? Well, let's just say that it's never a good sign when the best part of a book for me are the secondary characters because they bring a much needed comic relief.

 

This book was angst-fest galore! Everything that was going on between Matty and Rob was so dark and painful to read. Basically, it was hurt/hurt/hurt/hurt/a little comfort/hurt/hurt/hurt.

 

The story takes place 5 years after the first book, and Matty's eating disorder (or disordered eating) has become worse than ever. Gone is the bratty and flamboyant twink from the first book. Now, all that's left of Matty are his insecureness and his self-loathing. He's insecure about his job, his talent, his relationship, even about his looks.

 

And this went on and on and on ALL THE TIME. It was so stressful to be in his head that at around the 30% mark, I was just SO OVER IT! I was over his constant self-loathing and selfishness and his endless needs and demands from Rob. The worst thing for me was that he took Rob along with him in his downward spiral.

 

"Matty, when it came to sex, was the very definition of greedy - more, more, more, and me, me, me was pretty much his chant."

 

Yeah, that's Matty, the annoying bird, in a nutshell.

 

 

I was also this close to be over Rob too, who should have kicked Matty's selfish and demanding ass to therapy, no matter the money. But instead, he tried to help Matty and his illness with sex. Lots and lots of sex. Because the cure to an eating disorder lies in BDSM, obviously. Lovesick doormat is lovesick.

 

 

The BDSM scenes that worked so well in the first book became much more extreme and disturbing here. In the first book, they were a means to an end to establish and strengthen the relationship between Matty and Rob, and to give them both what they needed from each other.

 

Here, the BDSM went from light to very extreme and it was a cry for help on Matty's part and an expression of helplessness on Rob's. Which made for some VERY uncomfortable scenes that I had to skip over most of the parts.

 

The end made up for most of the frustration, but I was past the point where I cared anymore.

 

 

It's not that this is a bad book. Far from it. It's just that I hardly recognized the characters from the first book anymore which I so fell in love with.

 

And it's also one of those cases where I wished I would have stopped at a certain point in a series and let the MCs just have their HEA. Because I couldn't care less what happens after that. I know that real life is about physical and emotional struggles and financial problems and juggling work with free time. But I just don't want to read about it.

Review: "How to Train Your Dom in Five Easy Steps" by Josephine Myles
How to Train Your Dom in Five Easy Steps - Josephine Myles

"Was it possible for your dick to be gay, even if the rest of you wasn't?"

 

 

Guyyys, this book was BLOODY FANTASTIC and full of surprises!

 

First, let me tell you that I'm a total wuss when it comes down to those hardcore kinks in my books. I can handle the common BDSM scenes (spanking, flogging, even fisting when it's well-written), but I have a hard time when it comes to the really extreme stuff, like sounding, needle play or blood play.

 

 

So when I found out that the MCs, Jeff and Eddie, defined themselves as being a "sadist" and a "painslut", I was a little bit worried. But thankfully the humiliation kink and pain play were kept at a quite tolerable level. Nothing of the above-mentioned extremes to be found here, just your BDSM 101 basics.

 

 

The other thing that I wasn't expecting was how very romantic the story would turn out to be in the last 20%. Jeff was such a wonderful character. Stubborn and completely in denial at first about his attraction towards Eddie, and yet his "I'm not gay" shtick never once became annoying or frustrating, which is owed to the superb writing from Josephine Myles. I couldn't help but smile at how much attention he paid to the little things to woo Eddie and how he - once he finally admitted to himself that he really and truly fell for a man and that he absolutely wanted to be with Eddie - completely turned his life around.

 

 

So this book took one of my favorite tropes, the "fuck buddies to lovers" trope, and completely delivered. It was such a perfect mixture of funny, kinky, filthy, emotional, romantic, sweet and sexy. I'm a happy camper.

 

 

DEFINITELY RECOMMENDED!

 

Thanks to Marte for the BR!

Review: "Double Blind" (Special Delivery, #2) by Heidi Cullinan
Double Blind - Heidi Cullinan

"If you put all your chips in, you might win it all."

Heidi Cullinan, I KNEW you wouldn't let me down! I fucking KNEW it!

 

 

Ever since Randy first piqued my interest in "Special Delivery" and until I fell ultimately in love with him in "Hooch & Cake", I couldn't wait to read his story. Yeah ok, I admit it that I was more than a little nervous when I started this book.

 

Would my beloved Skeet finally find his own HEA? Would he find someone who he could have that close and loving kind of relationship with that Sam and Mitch already have? Would his love interest be worthy of my beloved Randy-Baby?

 

 

Enter Ethan. And Oh My Kylie, was he ever the perfect love interest for my Randy!

 

You could've cut the sexual tension between these two with a knife. But even more importantly, these two also completed each other on an emotional level outside of the bedroom. This was hurt/comfort at its best. Ethan was so right for Randy and vice versa, I was bursting with joy throughout the book.

 

 

Now to the sex scenes. They were smoking hot (like in 99% of all M/M romance books), they were sensual (like in 80% of all M/M romance books), they weren't just sex scenes per se, but they were meaningful to the story (like in 50% of all M/M romance books) AND they pushed my very own boundaries and I fucking loved it (like in 5% of all M/M romance books). Very few authors manage to make me feel this way, and it's even fewer authors who manage to make me feel this way OVER AND OVER AGAIN. Gah, I just love Heidi Cullinan. Plain and simple. I fucking LOVE her!

 

 

I understand that for some readers there might have been too much poker talk. But I'm not gonna lie, I fucking loved that too. I was a poker virgin before, but I ended up watching poker videos on YouTube and I'm totally down for a night of strip poker myself now. I just LOVE it when a book is not something to entertain me for a few hours, but when it's also teaching me a thing or two and leaves me smarter in the end. And besides, all that poker talk and poker analogies made complete sense in this setting and with these characters. Just like war analogies in a book with a military MC.

 

 

Oh, and did I mention that Kylie "MY Goddess" Minogue played a big part in this book too? And it wasn't like she and her songs have only been mentioned every now and then and that was that. No, Heidi Cullinan described her as (verbatim quote)

 

"(...) a pop princess who really was as kind and gracious and absolutely beautiful as Sam had billed her to be."

 

and there were also many, many other flattering things that's been said about her throughout the story. Things that just constantly made me nod and smile like an idiot. Now if I wouldn't have already been in love with this book, I would have felt a little manipulated. (There might be a little Sam inside me after all.)

 

 

So to sum it up: Heidi Cullinan

 

  • by giving us Ethan, added another great character to this universe, which
  • gave my Randy-Baby the HEA that he deserved (YAY!)
  • continued the story of Sam and Mitch, the couple from the previous book, in a more than satisfying way
  • not only pushed my boundaries when it comes to my personal no-nos, but she steered it to a more than satisfying outcome
  • taught me how to play and made me interested in poker
  • captured and nailed the magic that is Kylie Minogue

 

HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

 

And my love and fanboying for Heidi Cullinan just continues to grow and grow. She's my Kylie Minogue of M/M. There, I said it.

 

 

Thanks to Julie for the BR!

 

 

(Review may or may have not been written after several glasses of wine and therefore might not really have been that insightful of informative, but reviewer hopes anyway that his pure joy and love for this book shines through.)

Review: "Hooch & Cake" (Special Delivery, #1.5) by Heidi Cullinan
Hooch & Cake - Heidi Cullinan

"You call me Sunshine, but you're my star, Mitch Tedsoe. I love you, and I always will, forever and ever."

 

 

I know this is the story of Sam and Mitch's wedding, but Randy definitely stole their thunder. Again! Even Sam has to agree with me:

 

"You're the reason we figured out how to be together. You're the reason we didn't get married at the courthouse and fucked on the couch to christen the union. But even outside of that, you're part of us too, Randy. I married Mitch, but I love you too. We both do."

 

I hope that Sam and Mitch will at least make their marriage work on their own, without any help from Randy. But I have my doubts.
