Nora Phoenix-Slow Hand

Slow Hand is the first Nora Phoenix book I’ve reviewed here, I believe. She’s an MM author, and often writes a lot more than just 2 Ms. She writes Omegaverse as well as regular. She has contemporary and some post-apocalyptic stories too. This one is one of her contemporary stories. It’s the 4th book in a series, but it’s standalone enough that you aren’t going to miss anything if you haven’t read the others. This one is an Mmm, and it deals with some past abuse on the case of the subs. We don’t see any of the abuse, but they do talk about it. It’s also a Daddy book, in a couple of different ways.

So, Master Ford gets a call from his friend, who owns a club. He was contacted by a mutual friend, who is a cop and a Dom. He has rescued 2 young men who had been kept captive by a complete sadist and monster who claimed to be a master, but wasn’t any kind of Dom at all. He was just an abusive monster. Jathan and Thierry have gone through terrible, terrible things. They are fragile, both physically and emotionally. Ford doesn’t know what he’s going to do with them, but he already feels protective about them.

Thierry doesn’t speak. He is able to speak, physically, but it feels like the words get caught in his throat when he tries to talk. They are just trapped. Jathan, on the other hand, has no problem with speaking. He’s angry at the world, and especially Thierry. He has no problem telling everyone how unhappy he is.

I really like Ford. He is endlessly patient, in a situation that he was thrust into, without any kind of rule book. He made mistakes, because who isn’t in that situation, but he also admitted that he made mistakes, apologized and did what he could to make it better. Everyone had a lot of stuff they had to work through. Ford was trying to deal with his changing Dom tendencies and the way that his life is changing, and trying to handle the vastly different needs of Jathan and Thierry. They both have some needs that are the same, but they are also both traumatized by different things, and need different levels of D/s.

Thierry is a sweet, sweet boy. He was really just a light. I was so sad that he had gone through what he did. No one deserves to be treated that way, but when it is just someone who is as precious and innocent as Theirry is, it’s even worse, I think. I mean, don’t get me wrong, he’s a filthy little boy, but he’s also just sweet and innocent, if you know what I mean.

Jathan has such a tough shell. And it’s really no wonder why. I mean, the horrible stuff that has happened really just hurt him so much. But, he’s also got a really good heart, and a marshmallowy center. He has so much love to give, and it’s great to watch his healing journey.

Every royal has their dirty little secret. His was… me. 

It should have been simple. 
Go to the ball, meet the prince, and secure his patronage for my favorite charity. 
But beneath the mask, the brooding beast of a man was not at all who I expected. 
He was dark and intense and eerily quiet. 
When I left, I could still feel the ghost of his touch branded into my skin. 
He haunted my dreams, but I never expected to see him again. 
Then he came for me. 
And he took me. 
And I learned that his darkness was a void I never could have conceived. 
He’s the crown prince of Norway. 
And, now, I’m his captive.

Golden Angel-Chasing Her Lion

Chasing Her Lion is the last book in Golden’s Big Bad Bunnies series. I was happy to read it, but sad to see it. I’ve seen the end of too many series in the past few months, and I get a little teary upset, because I love the characters and the world. The BBB are joyful to read, and the books are funny. It’s fun to try and catch all the various geekdoms and easter eggs that Golden drops in them.

This is Bailey’s story. She’s the Beast of Caerbannog, the last of the Bunson children, and her bunny/bear/turtle is a real beast. Truly. She’s a bloodthirsty little thing, and no one will ever see her coming, except as a white blur. She’s hoping to find her fated mate, like Bethany and Brice did, but she’s been in a relationship with Kasim for a while now, and they are getting closer and closer. In fact, she’s ready to move on to the next level. But at a mating reception, on her way to the ranch fountain, things change. She smells something so wonderful. The best smell ever in the whole wide world. Her fated mate. Which, incidentally, isn’t Kasim, who is standing next to her. She walks up to the man, who stares at her and runs away. Meanwhile, Kasim has seen her see her fated mate, and asks Steele to send him on a mission, so he does. Far away. To a place Kasim never wanted to be, his hometown.

Kasim is so in love with Bailey, and has been waiting for her for so long, but now, when he’s right about to make his move, she meets her mate. He can’t stand to be there and watch the woman he loves more than anything have the life she always wanted with her fated mate. She was always so convinced that she would have one, and apparently, she did. Kasim wants her to be happy, but that doesn’t mean that he can stand to be there.

Kasim has been incredibly patient with Bailey and all the stuff that she’s done since the Bunsons were rescued. I mean, she sowed a whooooole lot of wild oats, been incredibly brash, bold, and impulsive, and been more than a little bit fixated on the idea of fated mates. But, it’s been totally worth it to him, because Bailey is Bailey, and all that he wants. I really do like Kasim a lot. He understands Bailey perfectly, I think, and even more than she does herself.

Bailey is a fun person, but I think that she’s a little bit, ok a lotta bit, impulsive, and doesn’t always think through the consequences of her actions. I think part of it is that she spent so much of her younger years in the labs of The Company, but I think she allowed that to be an excuse, and she needed to grow up a little bit. I think that Kasim is really good for her.

I love when the challenge comes, and everyone tries to warn off the challenger. Not because they are afraid for the challengee, but because they already know what will happen.

OK, that’s all I have to say about this one. Go check it out! Happy reading!

BLURB:

Sometimes all a lion shifter wants is a snuggly bunny to cuddle. And Kasim has been stalking his very kissable prey with the patience of a true hunter. But as the perfect moment to pounce arrives, life throws some obstacles in Kasim’s path and his hopes for something more with a certain some-bunny are dashed quite possibly forever.

The last of her siblings to find a partner, bunny shifter Bailey Bunson has been waiting for her fated mate. But when her dream of predestined love is ripped from her grasp, Bailey fears she’ll never know her own happily-ever-after. That is, until she realizes the unassuming lion shifter who’s been by her side might not be her fated mate, but is everything she’s ever wanted. Will it be too late for Bailey and Kasim?

Lili Zander & Lee Savino- Draekon Pirate

Lili and Lee have come out with the 3rd book in their Draekon spinoff, with Draekon Pirate. These books are the ones about the original Draekons. They don’t mate in pairs, they are one on one. This is the story of Fourth and Diana.

So, Diana, and her friend Lisa, were two of the human women who had been stolen away. But instead of being tortured like all the other women we’ve seen so far, Diana and Lisa have actually been thriving. That’s because they were saved by some pirates. In the months since they were rescued, Diana has worked herself up to second in command of the ship, and Lisa is part of the bridge crew. They are happy, and they have discovered a family.

Fourth, like most of his brothers, has been sent to rescue the human women that were kidnapped. So, he pulls up to this pirate ship, disables it, walks on to it, and almost gets hit by a thrown knife that he barely catches. That’s when he finds out that the women really don’t want to leave. They are perfectly happy.

BTW? Diana is really good at throwing knives. Like scary good. She grew up in the backwoods, way off the grid. So far off the grid that those prepper nutcases are like dayum. Her father taught her how to hunt and survive, which has really helped her.

Anyway, so Fourth, who has renamed himself Mirak, is fascinated by Diana. There’s just something about her that makes him want to know more about her. And it didn’t hurt that she tried to knife him the first time she met him. And Diana can’t get Mirak out of her mind either. (I originally had mound there, which works too.)

I think that Diana is a lot of fun. There’s just something about her that I really like. She has her own serious issues, mostly spawning from the way that she grew up and the way that the adults in her family treated her, but she’s also incredibly competent, smart, strategic, and just fierce. I think that she really blossomed on the pirate ship. It really was the perfect thing for her.

Mirak really needed to figure out who he was after waking back up. I think that he was really kind of lost after waking back up and was a little bit scared of everything, even if he wasn’t going to admit to being scared of anything. Because, you know, big scary dragon.

OMG, the horridness that came out of Mirak’s mouth. Diana should’ve shoved a knife in there. DEEP.

OK, that’s all for this one. Go check it out! Happy reading!
