5* Review: ‘Claiming Addison: 69 Bottles’ #1 by Zoey Derrick

3D_Addison

Blurb:

For Addison Beltrand, PR rep for Bold International, Inc. climbing the corporate ladder is all that matters in life. Her hard work is finally rewarded with the promotion she’s worked her ass off to earn—but the gig comes at a price. She leaves in two days for a twelve-week tour with America’s hottest alternative rock band, 69 Bottles.

Talon Carver, lead singer of 69 Bottles, has no problem with women–as long as they’re gone by morning. When Addison shakes up his world, it’s a huge problem—compounded by the fact that Addison’s not the only one he wants.

Kyle Black, manager of 69 Bottles, has a secret. He and Addison are closer than she thinks, but telling her could keep her away. When Talon sets his sights on Addison, Kyle uses his secret to push her into Talon’s arms, only to discover she isn’t the only one he needs.

Two men. One dilemma.

Talon is wild, reckless and loves control.

Kyle is calm, collected and loves passion.

The perfect balance…or Addison’s ultimate undoing?

Talon and Kyle push their boundaries and Addison’s, but can they throw their reservations to the wind and claim her together?

Two men. One woman. A rock band. A tour bus. One Wild Ride…

****Content Warning****

Sexy, naked, bisexual rock stars…and a lot more…This book contains, but is not limited to the following sexual content – reader discretion is advised – hot sex between two men and one woman. M/M/F, M/F/M, M/F, F/M and M/M sexual content. There are no boundaries when these three crash together, as long as you’re over 18 years of age.

My Review:

Before this book I’d never really got on with the whole rock band sub-genre. I read some a few years ago and they just didn’t do anything for me. I didn’t connect with the characters, they didn’t feel real to me. Bottom line, they didn’t excite me. I thought I was maybe getting too old, it’s been a good decade and a half since I lusted after a real life rock god.

Then I go on the Smutsonian and have a look around to see what Shurrn is recommending and there’s ‘Claiming Addison: 69 Bottles’ #1 by Zoey Derrick. She’s a new author to me but it gets a rave review and it’s bisexual menage – I’m already half in love with it! So I take the plunge and buy it. Best £1.99 I’ve spent in a long time.

Surprisingly the most important thing about this book for me is how much I loved Addison. It’s rare for me to be so taken with a heroine, but she grabbed my attention immediately and held it throughout the book. She’s strong, sassy and sometimes a snarky bitch. She doesn’t take any shit and she knows what she wants. It worked for me. She has just the right amount of issues and a bit of angst (I can’t stand too much angst) to keep her interesting. I totally envy her confidence and I want her tattoos. Plus she gets two insanely hot men – yeah I’d take a day in her life, no problem!

Now the blokes… (I love it when it’s plural!) Kellan and Talon are sexy as hell on their own, together it’s like an avalanche of sexy hotness. They’re a fantastic mix of dominant, tender, and rockstar attitude. The sex is hot, but I’m guessing there’s a lot more to come (no pun intended – stop being so dirty!) in the next book ‘Craving Talon: 69 Bottles’ #2 which is due out 17th Feb 2015.

‘Claiming Addison’ is a bisexual menage and it starts right at the beginning for the two men. So you get all those tense, hot first touches and all that yummy uncertainty that then leads to mind blowing orgasms. So good.

‘Claiming Addison’ rang all my bells and has me hooked. I can’t wait for their story to continue, there’s plenty left to tell.

5 ***** bright, shiny stars.

5* Review: ‘The Silk Tie’ by Lily Harlem

A little background first… Lily Harlem is one eighth of the fantastic Brit Babes. She has an amazing variety of books in her back catalogue and also writes as Harlem Dae with Natalie Dae. Phew! So many books to read and lots of books due for release this year too.

Screenshot 2015-01-15 at 20.58.32

I’ve just finished reading Lily’s book ‘The Silk Tie’ and it’s left me with an ache in my chest. You know the ones you get when you finish a book and you didn’t want it to end? I loved this book. It’s a keeper and will be re-read in its entirety, and sometimes in parts (you know which bits I’m talking about *wink*), over and over again.

I love reading about different kinks and finding new ones that I didn’t know about, expanding my sexual knowledge so to speak; but sometimes I just need to read a book that explores my own fantasies and kinks.

Well, let’s just say ‘The Silk Tie’ stimulates pretty much every nerve-ending for me. Bisexual menage, voyeurism, lots of M/M action, female dominating both men (pegging)…. is it hot in here?!

Lily writes bisexual menage with flair. The sex scenes are explicit and dirty. The dialogue is filthy, they watch each other fuck and talk about it. That’s one of my most favourite things and Ms Harlem does it with style. So many menage stories leave me feeling nothing because it’s A put his dick in that hole then B put his dick in that hole then C sucked A… you get the picture.

A large part of the menage fantasy for me is the voyeuristic aspect; watching the action as well as being part of it. But it’s not just the visual is it? I want to know what they feel about what they see; I want to hear them verbalise it too.

So tell me, in as filthy a way as possible, please. Lily does that in this book. She had me squirming and flushed. Winner!

It’s always interesting to see how an author deals with the existence of a third in a menage relationship. The emotions involved are complex, I think, and some menage stories overlook them. You get a real sense of the soul-searching involved for this couple, before they invite the third into their relationship and during it’s early stages. I did feel it was a little unrealistic that Haley felt no jealousy when she discovered her husband had feelings for another person. I certainly would have, even if I found the thought of it exciting and arousing. In the main, it’s a small criticism.

There is a definite sequence of events that keeps the story moving at a good pace and develops the relationships between the three central characters. We see a little of their daily working lives which rounds the characters out nicely, but for the most part the book is all about the events leading to the sex: which is exactly how I wanted it! No skim reading to the good bits because there’s plenty of them.

The thing with erotica is, you can recognise quality writing but still not love the book, still not get turned on by the words. When you find one that makes you feel it, each and every filthy, lusty word, it’s a little bit of heaven.

For me, great erotica is about an emotional connection with the characters as well as a physical response to their story. ‘The Silk Tie’ gave me that and more. So I’m giving it 5 very shiny stars ***** a highly recommended read.


‘The Silk Tie’ is self-published and only available on Amazon.

Three of the Best – Erotica Authors #1

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.

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

In this post: Charlotte Stein, Cara McKenna and Misha Horne.

Charlotte Steinwww.charlottestein.net also find her on twitter @Charlotte_Stein

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
