Book Review: It is Time and Other Stories

This is about It is Time and Other Stories by Anna Bayes.

Short description:

This collection of 15 romantic bite-size stories is a must-have for Anna’s loyal fans and serves as the perfect sampler for new readers. Find out why fans from everywhere are addicted to Anna’s writing.

The collection begins with the tale of a woman who has decided that “It is time” to give her lover a final gift.

From the sweet, vanilla exchanges of love (such as “Love Letter,” “Gratitude” and “Ticket to France”), the electrifying thrill of instant attraction (“Stockings, Pendant, Arousal” and “Unexpected”), paranormal love story (“Lucy Reborn”) to steamy tales that stretch the mind and boundaries (for example, “My Reluctant Dom” and “Four Hot Guys”), these 15 stories promise to tease and gratify.

Note: Explicit sex scenes. Adult material intended for readers aged 18+.

My two cents:

The description said it’d be the perfect sampler for new readers. It was.

Each and every sex scene was hot and done just right. Intense but not over-dramatic.

These were short stories but all of them were intact stories, or hinted at a story in the background.

This was a good sampler of different styles and heat ratings. Some were sweet, some were more aggressive and downright dirty in the orgy story. I’m not a fan of paranormal tales as I’ve said before, but the one paranormal story in this collection, “Lucy Reborn” was nicely done. The otherworldly sex scene was appropriate.

I especially liked the first story, “It is Time.” Finally an author who admits that not all bad boys can be tamed to become a woman’s loyal partner. It was sentimental but realistic. The oral sex scene was hot but it was more than just a scene.

Well fucking done. I’ll be back for more, Ms. Bayes.

5 out of 5 stars in my book.

Book Review: A Table for Three

This is about A Table for Three by Lainey Reese.

Short description:

She’s taking two bites out of the Big Apple.

New York, Book 1

Riley Ramirez knew that moving to New York would change her life. She just didn’t expect it to start on her very first night in town. Her attraction to nightclub owner Kincade Marshall is instant, mind-blowing—and mutual. When she finds he is a Dom who requires her complete surrender, even when it comes to submitting to his best friend, Trevor Wellington, she finds herself willing and eager to embrace the sexual adventure.

From their earliest days, Cade and Trevor have shared everything, including women. Yet it only takes one night with Riley to know she is their forever lady. Convincing her that this is more than a temporary fling, though, will take every tool in their sensual arsenal.

As Cade and Trevor set their sights on Riley, however, they’re unaware—until it’s almost too late—that someone is targeting their fragile relationship. Someone who’s taking deadly aim at Riley. Suddenly their struggle to keep their forever woman is a fight to keep her alive…

Warning: This book contains m/f/m ménage, bdsm play, lots of steamy p.d.a, and a fine dining experience that will leave you salivating for more.

amazon

My two cents:

This was done right.

An adorable girl ripe for picking, moulding and training. Submissive and willing but not blindly obeying, sweet and cute but with a voluptuous body to play with, gets a man’s pants tight in the right way.

Her two men are adept in the game. It’s a wise choice that they are best pals, and each has a distinct style which appeals.

It might have been a stretch that after just one night, both men could have decided that Riley was perfect for a long-term relationship, but the story progressed well enough to compensate for that.

The many sex scenes were hot, well-written and depicted a growing level of trust amongst the three. I especially liked the blindfold and “swing” scene.

A riveting read. I’ll be back for more, Ms. Reese.

5 out of 5 stars in my book.

Book Review: Sweetest Mistress

This is about Sweetest Mistress by Skye Warren.

Screen Shot 2014-01-24 at 10.32.17 pm

Short description:

In a weak moment of honesty, Wyle divulges his deepest desires. He doesn’t want to possess Melissa, he wants to worship her. Together they explore with a hot spanking, scorching phone sex call, and a humiliating anal play session, but the true test of his limits comes in a form neither of them expect.

Sweetest Mistress is an erotic romance novella featuring explicit sex, BDSM, and graphic language. Not intended for those uncomfortable with the subject matter or under eighteen.

amazon

My two cents:

A guy in his 40’s going out with a hot girl much younger than he is, sounds lucky? He’s insecure and has a tiny problem in the bedroom… but guess what, the sweet girl he’s dating turns out to be more than just sweet, she has just the right cure for him.

Lucky bastard, that’s what I was thinking when I read it.

Melissa is very believable, adorable and damn fuckable. The whole story was convincing and genuine. I enjoyed it a lot and finished reading it in a very quick go. The BDSM elements were light and not forced at all, good job, Ms. Warren. I’ll be checking you out again.

5 out of 5 stars in my book.
