Natalie Bennett-Depravity

You don’t have to get very far into Depravity in order to realize that this is a very Natalie Bennett book. It has her mix of total innocence and total chaos all wrapped up together in a pleasing package. This is dark and it does have MM, MFM, MMF sex in it. And I’d give it 5 scorching flames just for that part, let alone for the rest of the story.

Helena is sick. At least, that’s what her mother has told her all her life. That she’s sick and that nothing can fix her, no matter what. Her daddy has left her mother, and her mother says it’s all Helena’s fault. Helena likes to fix things that are broken. When Buddy breaks her mother, she breaks Buddy, and then she fixes them. She makes them smile at her and if she had a dog, they would be the perfect family. But it doesn’t work that way, so she calls her daddy to help deal with it. So he takes her home with him.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Declan and Ethan are getting their rocks off the way that they do. Mostly, that’s by killing someone while fucking them, and Declan fucking Ethan at the same time. They are partners in so many ways, including being lovers. And they like to kill together, in their playroom in the Dahlia. They have been looking for their perfect center, to help make their little family complete. Declan’s the lemon tier of cake, Ethan is the strawberry, and they need their vanilla tier. Then they meet Helena, and discover how perfect she is for them. Their biggest problem is going to be convincing her of that fact.

I like Helena as a character. I’m pretty sure that I wouldn’t want to be anywhere around her in real life, though. At the beginning of the book, she really has all the emotional knowledge and maturity of an infant. In fact, an infant may be more in touch with their emotions than Helena is. Of course, she’s been extremely isolated, to the point where for the majority of her life, she’s only been around her mother, father, and Buddy. And when one of those people spends all of their time telling you how sick you are and how broken you are and how no one will ever want you, you kinda end up not all that emotionally mature and you probably don’t think all that much of yourself, either.

Declan and Ethan are, of course, sick and depraved, but they know that and they willingly embrace it. And since Declan is an Andreou, ain’t no one gonna say nothin’ to them ’bout it, either. In fact, since the Andreous own the town, they could probably murder someone walking down the street and not have a problem. You know, that could be really interesting to see. I’ll have to go read all the other Andreou books to see if something like that happened. I have read the Mercy books, which are Morganna and Julian’s story, but I haven’t read the Obscene Duet, which is Mason and Katie, as of yet. I actually own them, I just need to find some spare time to read them. I used to joke that I would be 3 days dead before I finished my TBR, but these days, it’s going to be more like 3 years.

Anyway, this is darrrrk. There are glimmers of light, but it’s black light. Does that turn me off reading anything else that comes out of this world or about this trio? Oh fuck no. In fact, I’ll probably be right up on the front line in order to get it, because, well, I’m me.

black-dahlia-flower-phyllis-taylor

One of the things that really struck me about this book, and it’s down here in the spoiler section instead of up there because it could be a spoiler, is the whole nature vs. nurture argument. Is Helena sick because her mother treated her as sick and abused her? Or Is Helena sick because she’s a sociopath or psychopath? Or is it a combination thereof? Unfortunately, I don’t think that we’re ever going to be able to know the answer to that, and I didn’t really see anything that showed one way or the other what Natalie thought. I mean, yeah, one of the guys at one point says that she isn’t a socio/psychopath, but really, can we trust them? And it’s kind of seriously unethical and immoral to run any kind of experiment in the real world to test out nature vs. nurture. (Not that I would or would even advocate it.) I think, at this point, it’s going to be up to us, as the readers to decide, unless Natalie comes right out and says.

I hated Molly from the very beginning, so I wasn’t all that surprised that she tried to do what she tried to do. I have to wonder how much she knew about anything that Heath might’ve done to Helena. She seemed way too interested in getting Helena in that basement, if you know what I mean.

OK, that’s all I’m going to say on this one. I could go on and on, but you have to go check out this story and tell me what you think. Happy reading!

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

It’s also really windy. There are already thousands of power outage in Central Maine, and while my area doesn’t generally lose power, you never know what’s going to happen. If I disappear later today, I may have lost power, and I’ll be back as soon as possible.

There are some problems only a Daddy can solve.

When ex-Army MP David Grant comes home to Bridgeport, he finds a lot of things have changed. For one thing, there’s more crime. For another, the annoying younger sister of his best friend has grown into a real beauty, even if she does hide it under hoodies and baggy jeans. However, David soon realizes that her looks aren’t all she’s seeking to hide. The woman he used to call “the brat” is keeping a secret, and he aims to find out what it is.

Lillian Schiff wants nothing more than to leave Bridgeport and get away from the well-meaning but overbearing brother who has raised her since their parents’ death. But to make this happen, she’s gotten involved in a scheme that puts her on the wrong side of the law, and in the crosshairs of the man who has been her secret crush for years.

He once saw her as a brat, but now that Lillian is in trouble, he sees her as a little girl who needs love, and firm, painful correction to put her back on the straight and narrow.

“Sit down.” He guides me to the seat on the side of the shower and picks up a can of shower gel and two razors. I watch, fascinated, as he gently shaves my legs with the first, then gasp as he spreads my legs and picks up the second.

“I’m going to shave your pussy.” He doesn’t ask. He just announces it. I tilt my hips forward obediently. I can feel my clit swelling. It’s hard to hold still as he glides the razor over the sensitive skin he’s lathered. When he’s finished, he stands back and I watch as water sluices over the smooth contours of my labia. David reaches down and palms the shaved outer lips. God, it feels good.

“Like that?” He dips a finger between the soft pink lips, finding my clit. I ride his finger, moaning.

“Can I come, Daddy?”

“So soon? Greedy little girl. Of course. I told you I was going to spoil you, didn’t I?”

It’s the best kind of spoiling. I cry out in ecstasy, my hips arching as he slides one, then two, fingers into me.

“So tight,” he says, kissing me on the mouth. “So perfect.”

“Can I wash you now?”

“We aren’t finished.” He stands back up. “I told you I was going to wash everything, didn’t I?”

I’m wondering what’s left when he has me stand and turns me around. He orders me to put my hands on the shower seat and bend over. I flush with shame. As open as I am with my body, I still flush with embarrassment when David kneels behind me and spreads open my ass cheeks.

“David…” I begin.

“Hush.” He puts a soapy finger against my bottom hole. “How many guys have taken you there?”

“None!” I’m indignant at the question. He’s applying more pressure. I feel myself clenching to resist him.

“I’m going to take you there,” he says.

Giana Darling-Good Gone Bad

I fell in with The Fallen Men MC back in the last book in the series. It was the second book in the series, about Zeus Garro. The first book was about his son, King. Good Gone Bad is about Harleigh Rose, Zeus’ daughter and Fallen Men Princess. I know that her name probably has more to do with Harley Davidson motorcycles than Harley Quinn, the comic book character, but as I’m currently watching Suicide Squad for the 1897439849th time, I’m kind of stuck seeing Harleigh as Harley, mostly for the BAMF factor.

Anyway, I fell in love with Harleigh Rose during that book. I thought that she was fierce and loyal. If she loves you, she will have your back, always, and will go to the mat for you in a fight. She will do anydamnthing she has to in order to make sure that her family is safe, and for H.R., family isn’t just blood. She grew up as an MC princess, and the Fallen Men are part of her family as well. And frankly, when I say anything, I am not exaggerating.

So, H.R. is now just about to finish college to become a nurse. She no longer lives in the same town as her family so that she can go to school. She’s also dating Cricket, a member of the Berserker MC. Or at least, she was dating Cricket. Right up until she put a cleaver in his neck for trying to rape her after spending years of abusing her. She’s been hiding it from her family, because she feels ashamed that she has spent years being abused. (Protip: no one should EVER feel ashamed of being abused. It’s not your fault that it’s happening. It can be hard for you to realize that you are being abused until something big happens, because the abuser rarely starts out by beating you bloody. It starts slow and gets worse. If you are in an abusive relationship, there are places you can go for help. /steps off soapbox)

When she realizes that she’s killed Cricket, she has so many options as to what to do. She could call Zeus or King who would make it disappear like it never happened and then take her home and make her feel safe. However, that’s not what she did. Instead, she calls the man who has been her savior since she was 6 and says Lion, I’ve done something wrong.

Lionel Danner was there to help Harleigh Rose on one of the worst days of her life, the day her daddy got shot when he was saving Louise. She was 6 that day, and many, many times over the intervening years, he’s been there to save her, including when her abusive mother ODed one more time, and he and his family took H.R. and King in so that they would be safe until Zeus got out of prison. Four years ago, he had to separate himself from Harleigh Rose because he’s 10 years older than her and he was starting to feel all the things for her. Now, he’s a cop, and when she calls him and needs him, he drops everything to be there for her. Of course, because he’s the police, Cricket’s death doesn’t just disappear like it would have if her family had taken care of it, but her Lion is still there to stand in between her and the rest of the police and to hand her to her family so she can be safe.

When Cricket’s funeral comes around, as an MC princess, she knows that she has to go to Cricket’s funeral. As his ol’ lady, it’s expected. And that’s when she gets a huge surprise, Lionel has patched into the Berserkers. Not only that, he’s hanging with her best friend. And, his road name is Lion, the name she’s used for him all his life.

I like Lion for so many reasons. One reason is that he’s willing to go toe-to-toe with Zeus over what he thinks is the right thing to do. And he’ll do it, even if it pisses people off, including the giant MC prez. He’s also willing to stand up to and for his Rosie when she needs it. He turns into her dirty Dom when he needs to and when she needs him to. You wouldn’t think that H.R. would be any kind of subbie girl, but being strong and fierce and a BAMF doesn’t mean that you don’t have a subbie streak too. And that’s what Lion does for Rosie. He gives her the safe place she needs in order to get her needs met, and he’s there to lift her up and give her strength when she needs it. But, he’s also not trying to control all aspects of her life and realizes that she’s strong and there are things that she’s going to do, so it’s better to go along with her and support her than to try and tell her no and make it so that she is going to do it anyway, without him there to help her. Remember, this is Harleigh Rose, daughter of Zeus, sister of King, princess to the Fallen Men MC. She has grown up in an MC and while her dad may have kept her out of some of the club business, she’s still absorbed this stuff all her life, and she’s never going to be willing to have someone stand as her shield. She’s going to need someone to stand with her, and that’s what Lion does. He stands with her and supports her and makes sure she has a safe place to go and loves her.

OK, I got so fucking pissed at Zeus for the way that he wrote off Harleigh Rose. I mean, as her father, and knowing how loyal she is to him and her family, he should’ve known that she wouldn’t ever betray the Fallen Men. He should’ve trusted her and understood that there was something going on and some reason that she would have backed off from talking to everyone. He made things even harder for her and took more of the light that she needed away. Of course, he didn’t know what he had done, all he knew was that he had cut off a traitor. I cried. It was sad. I kind of hated Zeus at that moment. In my head, LouLou smacked him upside the back of his head when she found out the entire story of what was going on.

Anyway, that’s all I have to say about this one. If you like MC with a touch of dark, dirty, and taboo, check out the entire series. Happy reading!

Giana Darlin-Good Gone Bad Blog Tour

Title: Good Gone Bad
Series: The Fallen Men Series #3
Author: Giana Darling
Genre: Erotic Romance
Release Date: November 23, 2018
They say one action doesn’t define you. 

I killed a man. Stabbed him in the neck and licked the blood off my lips after I did it. 
 
Still, one action doesn’t define you. 
 
I could have called anyone. My father, the Prez of The Fallen MC, our family lawyer, my best friend, Lila, or my brother, King. 
 
I didn’t. 
 
Instead, I called Lionel Danner, the police officer renowned for taking down the Nightstalkers MC. The man who had been my father’s arch nemesis for decades. The man who hated everything I stood for. A man who had disappeared from my life without explanation three years ago. 
 
I called him. 
 
And maybe one action doesn’t define you, but killing a bad man and calling in the good changed my life and it sure as hell changed his. 
 
The third book in the Fallen Men Series. A standalone featuring Harleigh Rose and Officer Lionel Danner.

 

 

Author Lee Piper – “So yeah, Good Gone Bad is hot AF. But it’s also more than that. It’s layered, multifaceted, and above all, beautifully written.”

 

Musings of the Modern Belle – “Good Gone Bad is not just a super steamy romance, it is not just a suspenseful story about taking down a corrupt MC, it is a reflection of how humans aren’t just good or bad. It is a look at how we are both, how we can find our match in another, someone who just inherently gets you. It is about living wild and free while still having limits and being able to surrender and submit for those you love. It is an epic ride I implore you to take. Giana and Danner and Rosie won’t let you down.”

 

Author R. Scarlett – “I am so so in love with this book and Giana’s talent for creating addicting stories and beautiful complex characters.”

Giana Darling is a Canadian romance writer who specializes in the taboo and angsty side of love and romance. She currently travels Europe with her best friend, an overstuffed suitcase and a mission to eat and drink as much French, Italian and Greek food as possible. While lounging on white beaches, drinking sangria on patios and sleeping in villas, she is hard at work on Cosima Lombardi’s dark romance, The Enslaved Duet, coming summer 2018!
