The Pleasure Principle by Kimberly Adkins


This novel centers around Alice, the mousy and quiet housekeeper of Dr. Anderson Cain. She discovers his "study" of pleasing women and decides to set up a chance meet at the BDSM club where he finds his test subjects. Once there, she meets owner Julian Brax. Both men become enamored with Alice, and although at times they are at odds over her, the only way either can have her is together. 

The storyline was different, a little slow and unbelievable at times, but sexy and Alpha nonetheless. We never discover through the course of the book exactly what it is about Alice that attracts both men, except for her innocence. I would've liked for the characters to be a little more developed but overall, it was a good read.


Anderson Cain and Julian Brax have been best friends since college, two men with very strict—and very different—approaches to finding love: one by studying the physical act of sex, the other by mastering the art of dominance and control. But throughout their relationship, one thing has remained a constant: They've never let a woman come between them. Until now.

Shy and mousy Alice Dahl spends her days cleaning houses for clients who value discretion. In her bulky uniform, glasses, and cap, she appears non-descript and unobtrusive, and does her job without asking questions. Until she begins working for the secretive, and stunningly gorgeous, Dr. Anderson Cain, who awakens a sexual longing in her that she can’t ignore. A new woman comes home with Dr. Cain nearly once a month—and that’s about how long they last. Alicia longs to have a chance to be with him, even though she knows that’s ridiculous. But when her curiosity lures her into his forbidden study, she can’t resist peeking at his notes. And what she finds astounds her. Dr. Cain is researching the subject of sexual pleasure. Even just skimming over the experiments arouses her as he describes each subject’s threshold of pleasure and the methods used to achieve climax. And she finds the venue where he meets his subjects: Damsels, a secretive BDSM club in the heart of the French Quarter.

Determined to take a chance, for once, Alice embarks on a masquerade into the exclusive New Orleans underworld of Dominants and Submissives. Her stunning makeover gains her admittance at Damsels, but the owner of the Club, Julian Brax, senses her innocence the moment he sees her. The Dom inside him feels a powerful and all-consuming need to protect her and make her his own. Until he finds out that the girl he’s set his heart upon is his friend Anderson’s next subject. They’ve never let a woman come between them before. Perhaps this time, they might enjoy it…

Naughty Little Gift by Angel Payne


Holy smokes!! This was a super great read. Fast paced, sexy, alluring. It was an erotica book but very very different. Cassian was albeit your typical alpha male character, with charm, good looks, charisma. Mishella was VERY different from your typical either super sassy and strong heroine or your meek, timid, I can't do anything girl. She was smart and witty and cunning at the same time that she was strong and naive and innocent. I loved how their relationship blossomed and evolved. I thoroughly dislike her parents, but clearly Cass does, too. I cannot wait for the continuation of this story! 

Synopsis:
Make a wish…
Engineering genius. Billionaire icon. Consultant to kings. Golden-haired god. Cassian Court is a legend before he even steps foot on the remote island of Arcadia—but from the moment he locks eyes with Mishella Santelle, she can see only the man beneath the power, the presence, and the muscles…the bruised soul for whom hers has been destined…

But destiny isn’t a luxury for a woman of the Arcadian Court.

Close your eyes…
When six months of her life are bargained to Cassian in a multimillion dollar contract, Mishella must learn the rules of a more ruthless kingdom: New York City. In this glamorous jungle, paths are harder to discern, enemies are more cleverly camouflaged…and passions are impossible to ignore, especially when awakened by the man who can read her every desire with a glance, control her every arousal with a touch…

And leap…
Helpless against how her body and soul react to this man, Mishella dreads her heart is soon to follow—for the ghosts from Cassian’s past will never free him to return her love. In six months, she’ll simply be a memory to him…the naughty little toy he played with for a while…

Unless she can prove the impossible.

That their love is worth fighting for.

A bit about me... 

I've been hooked on books since I was a kid but it got worse in my twenties, when I discovered romances--the hotter, the better. Growing up in Southern California, with lots of surfer manliness surrounded me, was certainly a good boost for reading about delicious alpha guys and the women who adore them. When I learned I had a knack for telling these stories too, I guess you could say I was doomed--though my path toward romance novelist took a few detours via a concert-reviewing gig for my college newspaper (free show tickets...backstage passes...that was a no-brainer), artist interviews for a Beverly Hills dance music mag, personal assistant work for a record producer, dance club disc jockey, and a lot of fun in the hospitality industry.

These days, I still live in California, and have found an amazing alpha guy of my own who was brave enough to marry me. We live on a street that looks like Brigadoon, with our beautiful daughter. I have the best life ever, and never forget to thank the Big Guy Upstairs for it, either.

Boomerang by E. M. Denning


First, let me say that I really enjoy stepsibling romance books. There's something about getting the taboo without the real taboo!! This book was more enjoyable than most. It was sexy and hot and forbidden, but at the same time, it really was true love. I loved the relationship between Eli and Violet. I really came to hate Violet's dad. And for a good portion, I hated Eli's mom for not stepping up for her son. In the end, and after everything that happened, I slowly came over to her side and she won me over. I recommend this book wholeheartedly; it's not your typical stepbrother romance which makes me like it more!

‪#‎Synopsis‬:
Eli Cooper and Violet Holt haven’t gotten along well in the year their parents have been married, so it’s better that they don’t see each other often. After an averted disaster, sparks fly and now Violet can’t get Eli off her mind. Violet only has to avoid him for thirty more days, then she’ll be safely back at college and can focus her energy on her studies, but Eli isn’t so easily ignored.

Eventually, passion flares and they both give into temptation. Only one question remains when it’s over– What do you do when the one person you can’t get over is the one person you’re not supposed to be with?

Lured By My Master by Jenna Jacob





Overall, I enjoyed this book. Sam Brooks was everything you want in a Dom....confident, hard, demanding, caring, sensual, dedicated to her at all times. The relationship had a plethora of ups and downs and to be honest, 99% of it was just because of Cindy and her insecurities. I wasn't a big fan of Allisinda's. She was whiny and insecure and judgmental. I get that she has a hurtful past, but geez, who doesn't? Breakups don't define you. So she was dumped. She wasn't beaten or tortured or abused or anything. She also seemed to turn everything racial when there was zero implications of that in any of the conversations that SHE turned racial. I enjoyed their story and their relationship, but could have lived without some of her tirades. 




Synopsis:
How far would you go for love? Would you strip away your defenses? Confront your fears? Unlock your darkest secrets? Risk your heart without any promise of tomorrow?

I, Cindy Noland, ER Nurse have fallen crazy-in-love with sinfully sexy Dr. Samuel Brooks, only to discover he’s been hiding a kinky alter ego: Master Sam. Confronting him tossed me into a mysterious new world that incited my every fear, made my heart race, and left me questioning everything I knew about myself. Now I have only two options: gather the pieces of my heart and walk away, or lay my soul bare to venture into the sensual unknown with a man whose heart might never be mine?

Just how far would I go for love?
