Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: Neal and Way are back in this instalment of the Iron Eagle Gym series. They are happy together but still learning about one another. Way has trouble following some of Neal’s rules which at times causes tension between the two men.

Neal for his part understands Way’s reluctance and they both find common ground so to speak. I loved the characters. They seemed so different from one another yet meshed very well together.

This was a great addition to the series as it explores deeper into Neal and Way’s characters. I enjoyed the flow of the story, the tension and the sexy times. 

Great read.

Blurb: Wyoming Territory, 1870.

Elijah Carter is afflicted. Most of the townsfolk of South Pass City treat him as a simpleton because he’s deaf, but that’s not his only problem. Something in Elijah runs contrary to nature and to God. Something that Elijah desperately tries to keep hidden.

Harlan Crane, owner of the Empire saloon, knows Elijah for what he is – and for all the ungodly things he wants. But Crane isn’t the only one. Grady Mullins desires Elijah too, but unlike Crane, he refuses to push the kid.

When violence shatters Elijah’s world, he is caught between two very different men and two devastating urges: revenge, and despair. In a boomtown teetering on the edge of a bust, Elijah must face what it means to be a man in control of his own destiny, and choose a course that might end his life…or truly begin it for the very first time.

Reviewer: Gigi

Review: Sweetwater is anything but sweet, ending with a gut wrenching violent streak, sexual abuse, questionable consent, and a happy for now ending. If you like your reading gritty, a true harsh reality and your lovers dark and brooding, here you go! Lots of BDSM content, and did I mention violence. Sweetwater made even me a bit squeamish. 

Sweetwater is probably a pretty accurate description of the life of an orphaned kid who parents died of disease on the wagon train out, taken in by the Doctor who saved his life, raised by a cruel community who believed him to be simple, Elijah is actually a very complicated individual who is trying to figure himself and his sexuality out. 

Elijah takes what he can get when it comes to his sexual attraction ad developing kinks. Violence and criminal activity push him into the hands of the kingpin in town, that is until a mysterious cowboy comes to town as part of the cattle rusting ring the town is aiding. 

I do really enjoy a little kink, some heavy handedness, and aggressive dominant sexual scenes, there’s plenty of that. But there is so much violence and truly questionable rape scenarios that are not balanced out enough with a protected/loved place for Eli for me. Too violent, too sad, and too unstable. Maybe I need more warm and fuzzy at the end of a violent sad journey. 

The narration is very good, the writing is actually excellent, and if you like dark and dirty, this is the book for you!

Blurb: Destiny rewards those who embrace it.

Chris and his alien soul matches, Lasar and Nary, are ready to deepen their new bond as mates. It’s also time for Chris to begin his training as a Nasha, or sub, and for Nary to embrace his new role as Ahna, or Dom, to Chris. As three in the soul match, they are unique. Not only have Alasharians never matched with a human, they’ve never matched as three.

What makes them special also puts them in danger. The Supreme Soul Healer warned Chris that many changes were ahead, ones even more startling than the original invasion. They must keep their bond a secret until they know who they can trust.

As Ahna to both Nary and Chris, Lasar carries the responsibility of protecting his mates. A proud Alasharian warrior and commander, he’ll stop at nothing to keep them safe and to help Chris find his missing mother and sisters. To make sure that Chris’ cousin Morgan isn’t sent back to the slave cages, he’s also arranged for a fellow commander to take Morgan into his care when he returns from battle.

Lasar and Nary are invited to a pleasure party by the Alasharian’s leader, the Nall, and are forced to bring Chris and Morgan. But a terrifying turn of events sets in motion what might be the beginning of the end for them all, unless they can resist the void.

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of dubious consent, non-consent and violence.

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: Chris, Lasar and Nary are exploring their new bonded status with lots and lots of kinky sex. The roles have somewhat changed and Nary is learning how to be a Dom for Chris. Unfortunately while furthering their commitment to each other outside forces are getting in the way.

Chris, Nary and Lasar have to figure out who the bad guy is before things go too far. I loved the interactions between these three. I find the Alasharian’s to be quite interesting. It’s cute when Chris says something but they have no idea what it means. 

Suspense, action and mystery are all throughout this exciting sequel to Slave For Two.

Kilmer and Jacko’s relationship has been foundering for a long time. With the end in sight and despairing that he might never find a Dom who suits him, Kilmer heads to a local bar to drown his sorrows—and meets country singer Tanner.

Tanner feels oddly protective of the broken man and eventually convinces Kilmer to hire him to help remodel the small, sad house Kilmer once shared with Jacko. As Tanner and Kilmer get to know each other, Kilmer regains his lost independence and Tanner’s dominant streak rises to the surface. But will it be a help or a hindrance to the trust they’re trying to build?

The answer might lie in the music Kilmer gave up not long after he met Jacko. Music always granted him solace, clarity, and an outlet for his emotions, and with Tanner’s encouragement, he picks up where he left off. Playing together eases them into honest communication, and though a happily ever after will still take patience and work, taking a chance on each other sounds sweeter with every note.

Sparks fly before Ainsley realizes that the young woman is her former student, Noma, freshly graduated from college.

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: Crow finally decides to do something about his attraction to Shelton but while camping Shelton is kidnapped. I enjoyed this addition to the Wyvern’s series. Shelton is smart, kind, sweet and snarky. Crow is badass and possessive. 

I liked the action scene but felt it was way too short considering it’s a biker book. Other than that it was a great read.

Blurb: Four stories of sex, romance, and college boys learning to kneel.

Hitachi is a police officer reduced to being a glorified babysitter for a rich man’s son. He resents his assignment, but Gabriel isn’t the brat Hitachi believes he is. He’s a man who likes pain, and who wants Hitachi to let loose with him too.

Leo fantasizes about having sex with a complete stranger, but when he gets his chance it isn’t nearly as wonderful as he imagined it to be. His dad’s boss tries to teach him a lesson about making stupid choices, but his education in submission doesn’t end there.

Jensen is horrible at math, and now he’s in a calculus class that he’s barely getting through. His parents get him a tutor, but this tutor is interested in teaching Jensen about far more than just math.

Timothy comes back home, to a tiny town he can’t stand, when his mother’s illness gets worse. He’s made a string of bad decisions, and his mother’s friend is determined to turn his life around before Timothy gets lost entirely.

Product Link: https://ninestarpress.com/product/college-discipline/

Reviewer: Veronica

Review: I love this author’s work, but I really struggled with these four in one stories. The blurb is what got me to choose this story. Yes, there is intense sex scenes, but the stories are just so unbelievable. Jensen goes to be tutored in Mathematics, because he’s very bad at the subject, and within less than half hour, he has a safe word and he’s in a Play room, being spanked and then have sex with his tutor.

Hitachi has been sent on assignment to pick up someone from the airport, who he’s never met before, and to drive him home. He’s invited inside, and Gabriel quickly starts playing with him, and they role play, and have sex.

Leo has always fantasized about hooking up and having sex with a stranger. He organizes a hook up and goes to this guy’s house, without knowing who the guy is. He is given instructions on what will happen between them. He gets treated roughly with vigorous sex, and then after, the guy reveals himself and it’s his Dad’s boss. He treats Leo like crap, and tells him that he’s teaching him a lesion.

With Timothy, he left his hometown as fast as he could when he was eighteen, but now he has returned home after his mom’s illness have gotten worse. He goes to a bar to relax and they he’s approached by someone, who invites him to a rodeo. He goes to the location, and he’s brutally beaten, he’s rescued by the owner of the building, and then they have sex. The only difference in all of these stories is that Timothy is the only one in his right mind to ask about protection before sex. 

I love this author’s stories, but I won’t be recommending this one to anyone.

Length: 12 hrs 34 mins

Publisher: Dreamspinner Press (20th October 2016)

Heat Level: Moderate – Explicit

Narration: ♥♥♥♥ 4 Hearts

Blurb: In all his relationships, Darren Fielding never found the level of intimacy he witnessed between Thomas Williams and his sub, Peter, the day of Peter’s “rebirth”. Not only that, he never realized such intimacy was possible. For two years, Thomas’s business card has been burning a hole in his wallet. When Darren’s lover moves on, maybe it’s finally time to see where that card takes him.

Collars & Cuffs’ new barman, JJ Taylor, is really conflicted right now. He went to the club with a very specific purpose, already convinced of what he’d find there. Except it’s not what he expected at all. He certainly didn’t anticipate finding himself drawn to the new wannabe dom. Nor could he have guessed the direction that attraction would lead him.

Old love, new love, vows, pain, rage, moving in, moving on….The members of Collars & Cuffs face an event that touches some of them deeply, but it will only reinforce what they already know: together they are stronger, and some bonds cannot be broken.

Product Link: Audible US | Audible UK

Reviewer: Gigi

Review: Once I had developed a taste for the Collars & Cuffs series I couldn’t wait for the next, and Endings and Beginnings delivers. What I truly enjoyed besides all the hot kink, was revisiting all of our favorite couples. Of course we get to see a new relationship develop first, that of JJ and Daren, both new to the scene, both carrying a lot of baggage that seems at first insurmountable. But with all the help of the Collars and Cuffs family, even during a crisis that haunts them all from the past, a happy relationship will spout.  

My favorite thing about Endings & Beginnings, is that we get just that… to revisit each relationship, remember the couple’s struggles, strengths and passions, and join them in their heart-warming growth and promise for the future. A lot of HEA’s here! I especially love Pietro’s adventure…what a funny, heart melting surprise!! 

Joel Leslie’s strengths at offering each character a defines voice comes to light here, because there are so many sets of characters to follow, he does it very well, though I still get crunchy about his voice for Jarod, he’s only in his 50’s not geriatric damn it! But take that with a grain of salt, the rest of this is fun, kinky, love fest material. I recommend this entire series to anyone who loves kink with their romance!

With the Gay Riders’ Carnivale over, Whip brings Nicky home with him to his converted warehouse condo in Ottawa with the hopes that what they started at the Carnivale will grow into something they can both live with forever.

All is going well, the two of them learning more about each other and playing hard between Whip’s returning to work as an EMT and Nicky finding a job at a coffee shop.

When Nicky’s former master, the abusive Dirk, steps back into Nicky’s life, it threatens their very lives. Can Whip and Nicky survive both real life and Dirk?

ISBN: 978-1-78651-521-6

Product Link: https://www.pride-publishing.com/book/bringing-nicky-home

Reviewer: Veronica

Review: I’m not too familiar with this author’s work, and I didn’t read the previous two books in this series to know the circumstances about Whip and Nicky and how they met. From this story, it seems that the last Master that Nicky had, was very abusive and when he met Whip, he decides to go live with him. Although Nicky is living with Whip he wants a job, to help make a contribution in the relationship.

He still wakes with nightmares from when he was being abused and treated badly from his previous master. Whip tries to convince him that he’s safe and no-one will hurt him, once he’s there. Whip and Nicky’s relationship is going smoothly, yes they’re getting to know more about each other. The sex scenes are super hot, and I love the way that Whip keeps reassuring Nicky that he’s doing a good job of taking care of him and their home. Whip is an EMT who loves his job, but during the day when he’s at work, he misses Nicky like crazy.

Things come to a hit when Nicky gets a job working in a Café close to home, and a few days later, Nicky sees his old master Dirk, and messages Whip to let him know. His old master wants him back and will hurt Nicky as much as he can to get him back. Days later, Whip and Nicky are attacked by Dirk and his buddies. Hopefully the Police are called and Dirk and his friends are arrested for assault, and Whip and Nicky won’t have to keep looking out for him.  Granted this book can be read as a stand-alone, but I would recommend anyone reading it, to read the previous ones in this series before they read this one.

So what if Jarod is probably 20 years older than Eli. What does age matter, anyway? All he can see is what he’s always wanted – a sub who wants to serve.

Jarod spent 24 years with his Master before fate took him. Four years on, Jarod is still lost, so when a young Dom takes charge, Jarod rolls with it and finds himself serving again. But he keeps waiting for the other shoe to drop. Because there’s going to come a point when Eli realizes he’s a laughingstock in the club. Who would want to be seen with a 50-year-old sub?

After several missteps, Eli realizes that in order to find happiness, they will need friends who will understand. At a friend’s insistence, he visits Collars & Cuffs, where they are met with open arms. As they settle in to their new life, Eli begins to see things differently and he dares to think he can have it all. Until a phone call threatens to take it all away.

Reviewer: Gigi

Review: This was an excellently written BDSM story with an interesting twist. Instead of all the trite hot young twink subs, we’re provided a fine mature man of 50 filling the submissive role. The introduction is a tear jerker for sure. But as we read on and get to know both partners, a true romance, not just a kinkfest, develops. Not to say there isn’t plenty of kink. We get a bit of restraint, a little pain, precision tools, and some deprivation, but it’s all well written, and flows with mutual chemistry. The support characters are a joy to read and had me smiling the whole time I listened, and that’s saying something because I was raking leaves. I’m sure my family had to wonder what the hell was going on.

Only one little thing stuck in my craw, the narrators voice for Jarod made him sound like he’s an 80 year old geezer more often than not. My hubby is 54, and I can tell you he’s no geezer, and his voice is not strained. That is the only reason I rated the narration like that. Joel does well with the narration everywhere else. Once I got beyond that I could appreciate how each character had their own distinctive voice. My favorite character in this story was actually Maggy, Jarod’s mother. Not only did the narrator make her sound just like the Dowager Countess of Downton Abbey, she’s just as wild and kinky as her son! Made me laugh out loud. 

If you like some bondage with your boyfriends and you’re in agreement with me that with age comes refinement and richness, then you’ll love this story. I did not read the previous books, and though they are all tied together, this read fine as a standalone. Dom of Ages was a pleasure to listen to, Wells and Williams make a great team, and I know I look forward to giving the rest of the series a try!
