Misha Horne: Benched #5 Ground Rules

Benched #5

When I started this blog I did a few posts about my favourite authors. I mentioned Misha here, that was about three books ago in the Benched series.

I just finished reading Benched #5 Ground Rules and to say this series just keeps getting better is an understatement.

The series follows Kyle, a young baseball player who has bratty tendencies and realises early on that he loves a good spanking for a variety of reasons (don’t we all). It’s going to be written in nine parts like nine innings because Misha’s a bit of a self confessed baseball dork like that!

Each book moves his story on beautifully, developing his relationship with the gorgeous Juno. We’d all benefit from someone like Juno in our lives. He is truly one of the sexiest, loveliest characters I’ve read in a long time.

Benched #5 also goes a long way towards explaining what’s going on in Kyle’s surprisingly complicated head and his story is far from over.

A little insider information coming up…in Benched #6 we’re going to get a little more of Juno’s back story. But as Misha says, “Getting Juno to talk about himself is like pulling teeth, so he’s been holding onto some things for a while.” PLUS “There’s going to be a sex scene somewhere they definitely shouldn’t be having sex.” Sign me up! That sounds bloody good to me.

Misha’s writing just keeps getting better – I love her style. She doesn’t do soppy, but there are some lovely tender moments as well as hot sexy / spanky times in Benched #5. I for one am loving that combination.

So if you like M/M erotica with a heavy spanking content (what’s not to love? You’ve seen those baseball players asses, right?) Then this is the series for you. Start at the beginning and enjoy!

Thanks for reading,

5* Review: ‘Angel of Everything’ by Catherine D’Avis

ANGELfinal-cover

Sometimes a central character really lingers in the mind. Emma is an eighteen year old French girl who is bored with her small town life. She sends a prayer to the Angel of Happenings and gets more than she bargained for. In one respect it’s a tale of sexual awakening, but it isn’t sentimental. The sex scenes are sensual and erotic without being overtly explicit and definitely turned me on.

It is quite suspenseful throughout. I found myself on edge and worried for her, wanting to warn her to stay away from a situation that she clearly didn’t understand. Emma is a lovely mix of maturity and insightfulness, innocence and naivete, but she doesn’t fully understand the dynamics of the relationship she has become a part of.

‘The Angel of Everything’ is a fast paced and easy read (I couldn’t put it down, finishing it in a few hours). There is some beautiful prose here and moments where I fell in love with Emma:

“As she ran, she experienced a rising sensation, as though her feet were no longer touching the ground.”

“She laughed also, sinking backwards into the dank undergrowth and staring up-wards at the patches of blue sky.”

This is a lovely and unusual book with an engaging central character. I loved the dreamlike quality of this story and will definitely look out for future books by Catherine D’Avis.

 

Charlotte Stein’s ‘Forbidden’ (Under the Skin series #2) blog tour starts Monday 25th Jan!!

Blog Tour Banner

Tormented young woman in her bedroom

FORBIDDEN (Under the Skin Series #2)

SYNOPSIS:

They say I need help. Another exorcism. This is not new. This is my life. Today, I expect to suffer at the hands of a man as warped by superstition and fear as my mother. A man who will torture me in order to save me from things that don’t exist.

But the man who actually comes to me is different.

Killian is good and decent, and he sees what’s good and decent in me. And I don’t mean for it to happen, but every time he looks at me, his gaze sets me on fire. He brings me to the light, gives me back my life. For the first time, I see a future for myself.

A future with him.

I burn for Killian – a man who’s intent on protecting me. On healing me.

He doesn’t get it. The only thing that can heal me is him. But Killian will soon be a priest. Untouchable. Forbidden.

How can I ask a man to choose between me … and God?

Happy New Year… Three of the Best – Erotic Authors #3

Dear All,

Happy New Year to you!!

Here’s hoping 2015 = lots of happy reading for us all.

I love finding a good new author with an extensive back catalogue to work through. Hopefully, you’ll find something you like here.

No reviews or blurbs on this page. Just the title and author info so you can go and explore for yourself if you so desire. I haven’t read all the books that these authors have written. I’m only recommending the ones that I have read.

In this post: Lauren Dane, Red Phoenix and Kelly Jamieson

Lauren Dane: www.laurendane.com also find her on twitter @laurendane

Dane writes books of different heat levels so I’m just going to mention her erotic fiction here. The Brown Family series is her best I think. Great characters and hot sex!

My best picks for Lauren’s books are:

Laid Bare – M/F then M/M/F menage (small element of bisexuality).

Laid Open – M/M/F bisexual menage. Same characters as Laid Open. The menage scenes in this book are fabulous!

Red Phoenix: wwwredphoenix69.com also find her on twitter @redphoenix69

I really like Red’s series Brie Learns the Art of Submission. I’ve read a few of her stand alones and they’re good too. They’re hot and often kinky books but they never forget the romance. If you’re new to the whole BDSM D/s thing then this series is a pretty good place to start.

My best picks for Red’s books are:

Brie Learns the Art of Submission: The Training Centre (all 9 stories of the first series in one book) – a bit of all sorts in here to be honest. D/s, BDSM, lots of kink but ultimately Brie’s story is about falling in love with her Sir. You can buy them individually if you want.

And Then He Saved Me – hot little story about two lonely people who find and heal each other M/F.

Kelly Jamieson: www.kellyjamieson.com also find her on twitter @KellyJamieson

Kelly writes great contemporary romance and really hot bisexual menage. Her books are sweet and romantic with a whole bucket load of sex. Rule of Three nearly set my hair on fire!!

My best picks for Kelly’s books:

Rule of Three (series of three books) – M/M/F bisexual menage HOT!!! The three books follow the same characters as their relationship develops.

Rigger – M/F ropes and lots of ‘em! One of my favourite books about the beauty of bondage.

Breakaway #1 (Heller Brothers Hockey series) – I love a good sports romance especially if it’s got great athletic sex in it!! Five books in this series and I loved them all.


HAPPY READING!

Marie Harte: www.marieharte.com also find her on twitter @MHarte_Author

Harte writes a lot of paranormal books as well as contemporary romance (I think she’s written over 100 in total). I haven’t read anywhere near that but there are a few series of hers that I love – The McCauley Brothers, Wicked Warrens, and The Works. The books I have chosen are really good contemporary romances with hot, sizzling sex. Some kink involved.

My best picks for Marie’s books:

Working Out (The Works) – M/F D/s

Raising The Bar (Wicked Warrens) – M/M and M/M/F bisexual menage. HOT!!

Making The Grade (Wicked Warrens) – M/F Kinkiness with a third.

Bending The Rules (Wicked Warrens) – M/F with some M/M/F menage.

Maya Banks: www.mayabanks.com also find her on twitter @maya_banks

Well I can’t write about erotica authors and not mention Maya Banks. I read a lot of her books a few years ago when I first got into this genre. She has written a lot so if you’re new to her you’ve got a lot to choose from. I started with The Sweet series and her menage novels. She loves a good anal scene and lots of kink so her books are not for the faint hearted! (‘Coalter’s Daughter’ springs to mind). There’s more than one with a go to sex scene in it if I want some alone time with my vibrator.

My best picks for Maya’s books:

Sweet Surrender – mainly M/F with a  M/M/F menage scene. BDSM. D/s

Sweet Persuasion – mainly M/F. BDSM. Exploring a D/s relationship.

Be With Me – HOT!!! M/M/M/F menage.

Soul Possession – scorching M/M/F menage.

Lorelei James: www.loreleijames.com also find her on twitter @loreleijames

Lorelei’s Rough Riders series is a must read for anyone with even a slight love of cowboys. It’s contemporary western romance and all the stories are connected by a very large extended family called the McKay’s. There’s a lot of menage in there, kinky happenings with rope (obviously they’re cowboys / grew up on a ranch) and let’s just say they’re all dominant alpha males. There’s a lone female McKay in there too.

My best Rough Riders picks:

Rough, Raw and Ready – OMG! This was my first bisexual menage and well let’s just say it had a lasting effect on me. Worth reading the other books for back story but not necessary. Trevor, Edgard and Chassie’s story.

Shoulda Been A Cowboy – Cam’s story. D/s some M/M/F menage.

Cowgirl Up and Ride – AJ and Cord’s story.

I love Stein’s books. She has a unique voice. Often writing in first person point of view, the reader gets a very intimate insight into the characters feelings and sexual encounters. Intelligent and at times laugh out loud funny her books are just a hot joy to read. A go to author for me.

She writes mainly M/F and menage; the best of which are bisexual – HOT that’s all I’m saying. Stein has over thirty short stories, novellas and novels so there’s a wide selection to choose from.

My best picks for Charlotte’s books are:

Make Me – M/M/F bisexual menage. One of my all time favourite books. So hot and intense. Love it!

All Other Things – M/M/F bisexual menage

Control – menage (small elements of M/M/F bisexuality). All I’m saying is “Oh, Gabe” (sigh).

Telling Tales – M/M/F bisexual menage (threesome and M/M/F/F foursome).

Intrusion – M/F new series called Under The Skin. Darker than usual with the hint of a thriller. Other books due out in this series.

Curve Ball – M/F

Cara McKenna: www.caramckenna.com also find her on twitter @caramckenna

I’m a BIG fan of McKenna’s books: they’re intelligent, dark, edgy and seriously hot. She’s good with blue collar alpha males. They’re often a bit mean and a bit moody but they’ve got big hearts and ultimately give their partners what they want in the sack *shiver* works for me every time. The first book of hers I read was ‘Willing Victim’ it blew me away. She has a real talent for exploring the sexual psychology of her main characters. You really understand their sexual journey. It’s not always a comfortable journey but it’s always worth it. I fall in love with her rough and ready characters every time. Again, she has a decent sized back catalogue, so here are a few I really like to get you going.

My best picks for Cara’s books are:

Dirty Thirty M/M/F bisexual menage. This is just an awesomely hot book. One of my all time favourites in this sub genre.

After Hours – M/F

Willing Victim – M/F

Backwoods / Shivaree / Getaway – M/M and M/M/F bisexual menage. HOT!!! Shane was the one who did it for me in these books.

Hard Times – M/F

Misha Horne: Amazon page also find her on twitter @mishahornebooks

Misha is a new author I discovered through twitter. I’m pretty new to M/M erotica but it’s rapidly becoming a favourite sub-genre. She writes M/M stories with a lot of spicy spanking going on! Her Benched series is HOT! Baseball, hot men and – well… spanking. What more do you want?? I love her books and I hope you will too.

My best picks for Misha’s books are:

Benched #1 (series of 4 currently) – M/M

Smart Boy – M/M written with AJ Sisko. They have plans to write more together in 2015.

Bad Boys Get Spanked (Gay spanking bundle) – M/M
