eBook Review: La Brat by Ashe Barker (@ashebarker @totally_bound)

Sponsored Ad

La BratI very much enjoyed Ashe Barker’s previous novel in this imprint, Chameleon (though it’s worth noting all the books in this imprint are standalones), so I was eager to check out this one – set in my favourite city, no less.

La Brat tells the story of Eugenie, a submissive who managed to piss off her Dom so much that he no longer wants anything to do with her. Throwing herself into the BDSM lifestyle, Eugenie knows deep down it’s hollow, that it’s doing nothing for her, so she tries to move on with her life. When she sees a job opportunity at a top notch hotel in Paris, she’s intrigued. What’s more, she really wants it.

However, when she’s lucky enough to land the job, she realises her start won’t be quite as fresh as she’d thought. For the Dom she thought she’d left behind in England now works at the Totally Five Star Paris, and they’ll be close colleagues.

Determined not to let it affect her career, Eugenie remains professional. But it soon becomes apparent her feelings for Aaron can’t be that easily ignored. Especially when it turns out he feels the same.

La Brat was another great read from Ashe Barker. With a backdrop of a stunning, luxurious hotel and a beautiful city, this novel is escapism at its finest. The writing, as always, was fantastic, the plot intriguing and the sex scenes sizzling. If you love M/F BDSM erotic romance novels, I’d definitely recommend checking this one out.

Free Read Friday: Black Lace by The Vixen #freeread #freereadfriday

10155701_343248352550505_4455038531687750164_nHere’s a free read, posted with permission from The Vixen:

Oh God’…An arousing sensation shot down her spine. She was exposed, bounded and blinded. A thin layer of sweat covered her body, her body glistened under the lights of the illuminated bedroom. The temperature continued to rise throughout her as she awaited his next move. The intensity in the room grew. Her hands were tied with thick black leather handcuffs, attached to the harness on the ceiling. Her desperate breathing was the only thing that broke through the silence.

She was completely helpless.

The Fallacy of Writer’s Block by Kemberlee Shortland (@kemberlee) #erotica #romance #giveaway

tourbutton_onenightindublin

1Writer’s Block – n. Psychological inability to begin or continue work on a piece of writing.

Imagine this scenario —

You’re at your desk. You’ve been in a writing frenzy; the words are pouring out of you like water. Suddenly you’re sweating, struggling to find the right words, then the story comes to a blinding halt. You sit back and think about it for a while. What happens next?

You check your email to see if anyone wants to talk to you, because obviously, your characters don’t want to. You check Facebook. Check your crops at Farmville. You might even make a few phone calls. They’re just little things, right?

Appearances Can Be Deceiving by Amanda Bretz

Amanda Bretz_Life of Privilege _BlogTour_SocialMedia_403_final

Thank you for hosting me here at Erotica for All! I’m excited to be a guest on your blog today.

Appearances aren’t what they seem, so we’ve been told time and time again throughout our lives. Don’t judge a book by its cover. There’s more than meets the eye. Looks can be deceiving. While all these sayings are true, somehow we tend to forget them. Appearances—at least initially—always tend to carry more weight than anything else when telling us about a person.

As a writer part of the fun of creating a character can be to slowly unravel bits of pieces of their past, revealing there’s much more to a character than one might’ve originally believed. Creating those layers adds a richness and makes for a more believable and realistic character. It also adds to the story itself.

eBook Review: Silver Bastard by Joanna Wylde

Silver BastardSilver Bastard is the first book in Joanna Wylde’s Silver Valley series, which is a spinoff of the Reapers series. It looks to me as though there will be crossover between characters and storylines from the various motorcycle clubs, but this book still reads perfectly well as a standalone – though I suspect if you enjoyed this, you’ll be checking out the other books anyway.

Silver Bastard tells the tale of Puck Redhouse, a prospect member of the Silver Bastards who took the blame for something and went to prison for fourteen months for his club. On his release, his brothers threw a party of sorts for him – giving him full membership to the club. At the party, he met Becca Jones, a woman who utterly captivated him. But, by the end of the evening, he had violated his parole terms and stolen Becca away from  her home and life.

Naturally, things weren’t as simple as that, and, five years later, Becca’s doing well, though she’s still terrified of Puck. But when Becca’s past tries to catch up with her, she needs help, and there’s only one person she trusts to provide her with that help: Puck. The situation throws them together and stirs up feelings they’d both tried to forget. But soon, they can’t ignore them any longer…

This was another fab read from Joanna Wylde. Her writing is gritty and dark, and this book is no exception. I liked the change of scenery from the Reapers books, and the new characters that are introduced. As I think I’ve said before about these MC books, they’re definitely not for the faint-hearted, but they’re very absorbing and great for escapism. This is another page-turner of a read, and I’d recommend it to erotic romance fans who like their books gritty.
