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.
