Sara Fields-Mastered

Here we are back on a futuristic Earth that has been invaded and devastated by the Vakarrans, thanks to Sara Fields. Mastered is the second book of this series, and I’m really interested to see where it’s going to go after this one. I think some really interesting things will be happening.

Alaina Stryke, sister to rebel Kira Stryke from our first book, is now in charge of leading their rebellious little band. Kira had gone to her command center to make sure that no Vakarrans were around while Alaina and their two younger sisters moved the rest of the group on to another hidden area. They have to stay hidden because the women would be taken by the Vakarrans and turned into breeders and sex slaves and then men will just be slaves. But when Kira doesn’t come back, Alaina fears the worst.

She decides that she will go to the command center to see what she will find. When she gets there, she discovers that there is a lone Vakarran near one of Kira’s traps, so she’s going to capture him and make him tell her where her sister is so that she can be rescued. Davvan is the youngest member of the second battalion. Alaina gets him trapped in a pit and then goes to talk to him. He tells her that he can’t get her any info on her sister and that he can’t communicate with any Vakarrans. As she goes to shoot him, she feels a gun held up to her own head. Turns out that Davvan is devious and the tables have been turned on her.

The rest of Davvan’s team has arrived and they are going to make this human woman pay, because she’s a human woman and she’s a slave. On top of that, she had the audacity to consider killing a Vakarran. Ryder, Morgn, and Aarom have to all give shit to Davven about it first, but she’s well fucked and punished by the time they drag her into the nearby training facility.

OK, everyone may want to think of the Vakarrans as bad guys, not all of them are. Her guys save a human from another Vakarran who was whipping the shit out of her. Whipping her enough that it was probably going to leave marks. So really, the Vakarrans are like anyone else. There are some that are dicks and that let the power they have go to their heads. There are others who are decent guys, like Kira’s guys and like our current 4. Of course, that doesn’t mean that they aren’t going to tie up Alaina, spank her until her ass is a bright cherry red, and then fuck her senseless. They just aren’t going to harm her. However, they are worried about her being harmed, because their new commander will want to take her and keep her and will probably kill her. Even though he technically can’t because they have a claim on her, that won’t stop him. He’s an asshole and a nasty piece of work who is a political appointee because he’s part of the old boys’ network.

I really liked Alaina, and to quote the movie Slither, “Bitch is hardcore.” She is fierce. She’s a warrior and she has a huge heart. I liked all her guys, for different reasons. I think that Aarom is my favorite though. He’s a little softer, maybe, than other Vakarrans we’ve seen. Not saying he won’t punish Alaina when she needs it, but he is also her emotional support and her friend as well as her lover. I liked that a lot.

I really liked the ending. I’m eager to see what changes are going to come in the series because of the choices that the guys made. It was a pretty bold choice.

I loved that Alaina handled certain things on her own. I knew that she was walking into a trap, but that she did what she did made me really happy. And the fact that other women were taken out of that situation because of her decisions is a good thing. And if the women had to be rescued by Vakarrans, it’s a good thing it was these guys.

I’m really looking forward to the next book and to see where Sara’s going to go with it. I’m wondering if there may be a small rebellion starting in the Vakarran ranks because of Kira and Alaina. That would be interesting, wouldn’t it? Go check these books out and tell me what you think. Happy reading!

BLURB:

They captured her. They punished her. Now they will master her.

First the Vakarrans took my home. Then they took my sister. Now, they have taken me.

As a prisoner of four of their fiercest warriors, I know what fate awaits me. Humans who dare to fight back the way I did are not just punished, they are taught their place in ways so shameful I shudder to think about them.

The four huge, intimidating alien brutes who took me captive are going to claim me in every way possible, using me more thoroughly than I can imagine. I despise them, yet as they force one savage, shattering climax after another from my naked, quivering body, I cannot help but wonder if soon I will beg for them to master me completely.

Jane Henry-Conviction

We’re back in NYC and at Verge, the best BDSM club in town with Jane Henry today. I really enjoy this series and all the folks we’ve met in this world so far. But, I’m pretty sure that Zoe is going to be my favorite. So, let’s talk about Conviction, shall we?

We open to a big party. Zack and Bea eloped, but they’ve decided that it’s high time they celebrate their marriage. Zoe is out drinking and dancing and having a good old time. She’s Zack’s old partner in the NYPD, and she and Bea have become good friends. Brax, who’s Zack’s best friend and works as a dungeon master at Verge, is watching her. Zack warns him off because Zoe has a lot of baggage and it wouldn’t be good. He doesn’t care. She’s hot and he wants to get to know her.

When Zoe sees that Brax is looking at her, she seems surprised, but then he comes over to see her and they start dancing. Bea catches her eye and tries to warn her off, but Zoe ignores the phone ringing. Bea does track her down before she and Brax leave and tells her that she doesn’t think that Zoe and Brax would work well together because he’s into things she isn’t. That doesn’t deter Zoe. In fact, I’m pretty sure it made her more eager to go after Brax.

The next morning, it seems like they are going their separate ways, never to see each other again. But of course, if that actually happened, we wouldn’t have a book, now would we? It turns out that Zoe is keeping secrets, and Brax gets wrapped up in them as a PI and her protector.

So, you know that Brax is a Dom. But Zoe is so not a sub. I mean, NOT A SUB. If it were tattooed on her forehead, it wouldn’t be any more obvious. She’s feisty, mouthy, independent, stubborn af, damaged, and fierce. All of these things are good things, in my opinion, but you notice how submissive isn’t on that list? It’s not anything she’s ever really tried. Brax says something interesting when he and Zoe are talking about where their relationship is. She points out that she isn’t a sub. He says it’s not being about being a submissive, but of giving submission. Submitting to his Domliness doesn’t mean that she’s a sub, it means that she’s giving submission. I thought that was a really interesting point, and one that gets brought up a few times. Brax likes her feisty, and likes the fight to gain her submission to him and Zoe needs that fight and needs for him to make her submit. It works out really well for them. And it’s a change from females that we see in a lot of BDSM books, where the heroine finds out that she’s a subbie girl all along. I get where Zoe is coming from, with her history of emotional damage, not being in control can be really scary and she has to face feelings and emotions which is scary. Brax taking control releases her from those fears and lets her face everything in a safe place, which makes everything better.

beach-dawn-dusk-292442

Oh, I hate Brax’s ex, but I adored when Zoe smacked her down at Devin’s art show. I just wanted to cheer for her. The fact that she was able to keep it together well enough in a place that is traumatic for her and not get all cursy in front of Devin is pretty awesome.

I love that she saved Brax and he saved her all at the same time. It was a beautiful part of the story, for all that happened during that section.

OK, that’s all I have to say today. Go read this one and all of Jane’s books. They are great romances, but her BDSM is so excellent. Happy reading!

BLURB:

The Celestial Mates agency always knows what – or who – you need.

Tarrik would do anything to avoid breaking his mother’s heart, so he begrudgingly signs up for Celestial Mates and agrees to come home and settle down once the agency finds his match. There’s just one catch: he’s not ready to give up his free and easy life traveling the galaxy. And he’s doing exactly as his mother asked, so what will it hurt if he makes himself as unappealing as possible on his mate application?

Juliette is a woman on the run. Her attitude, and more importantly her hacking skills, have pissed off all the wrong people. Now the target of a contract hit, she’s decided the solution to her problems is to leave the planet as fast as she can. The Celestial Mates program is exactly what she needs. By the time her “mate” realizes she’s impossible to live with, hopefully it will be safe for her to return to earth. She wasn’t counting on a seriously hot alien who looked like the devil and could do the most sinful things with his tail…

The sparks fly at first meeting when their chemistry ignites. But they can barely stand to be in the same room with each other.

They shouldn’t work at all.

But Celestial Mates always knows best.

She is happily married, old enough to know better but still too young to care, and a big fan of happily-ever-afters, strong heroes and heroines, and sizzling chemistry.

She believes the world is a better place when there’s a little magic in it.

Ava Sinclair-King’s Bride

Today we’re going back into Ava’s Drakoryan world. And how proud of myself do you think I am that I can remember how to spell Drakoryan? Also, my Grammarly no longer recognizes Drakoryan as a misspelled word. LOL. But, I digress. Again. Like that never, ever happens. But, that doesn’t get us to King’s Bride, does it? So let us talk dragons.

Zara was taken when her village of Branlock was destroyed by the Shadowfell. They managed to take all but her sister, Isla, who has already mated with her own dragon mates. When Zara was found wandering the woods, cold and starving, nothing was able to heal her, so Isla begged for her to be sent to the witchs. However, the evil dragons had pumped Zara full of dark magic like a Trojan Horse so that they could use her to break into the stronghold.

In the great battle to try to keep the ShadowFell out of the witchs’ mountain and away from the deep and wild magic, King Vukuris died. That means that Drakoryan are currently left without a king. The four princes, Bymir, Rargi, Yrgi, and Oneg decree that they will take Zara as bride and queen. But, naming the king isn’t as easy as picking the oldest or the one who was trueborn from Vukuris versus his brothers. No. They are going to have to battle. The princes will fight to see which has the right to the first night with Zara and to be King. To the winner goes both prizes.

Each of these books gets more and more interesting. There’s just so much more going on as we build up from where we started with Sacrifice to where we are now with King’s Bride. I love that each book gives us a new happy grouping, but that we are also getting an overarching storyline. And I totally love that we aren’t getting instant happy families. There is work that has to be done for each grouping to be happy. I can’t wait to see what the next one is going to bring with all the changes that showed up in this one.

I’m loving that Layla had twins and that one is a girl. That’s going to make some seriously interesting changes. I really love that the witches are still able to get through and tell people what’s going on. I look forward to learning more about Sabine and what she is going to do.

Poor Oneg. I both do and don’t feel sorry for him. There’s the whole he wants to be his father’s son thing going on and then the whole they are all their fathers’ sons and blood doesn’t mean all that much. I love the line that Bymir says along the lines of yes, Father treated us all as his sons, and I will treat your sons as if they are all my sons, and you will be happy that I do. I also like that Bymir was able to realize when he needed to apologize. I think that if he hadn’t done that, then Oneg wouldn’t have been able to get past his stuff.

I loved this book, just as I have loved all the Drakoryan books, and I look forward to reading new ones. Happy reading!

R. Lee Smith-The Last Hour of Gann

So, Addison Cain is my pusher and enabler. Not only does she write books that I read over and over and over and over and over, but she also suggests books that she’s read that she thinks people will like. Well, I’ve learned through experience that if Addison suggests a book, I should totally go read it. She hasn’t steered me wrong yet. So, when she raved about R. Lee Smith’s The Last Hour of Gann, I knew I was going to read it. I had looked at the blurb a couple of times, so it wasn’t a hard decision.

OK, so let’s talk book. The book takes place in the future. The Earth is crazily overpopulated. In fact, it’s so overpopulated that there are laws about reproduction. Women are given implants so that they can’t get pregnant. There is a group called Manifest Destiny that has come up with a pioneering ship. The people on this ship are going to go on a 5 year trip in suspended sleep. They are going to do something called tunneling through space to get to an Earth-like planet where they can colonize. On the first trip, they are offering all kinds of bonuses to get people to go. And this is where we enter.

Amber and her younger sister Nicci have just lost their mother. She was a prostitute and a drug addict. Less than 5 minutes after their mother has died, an eviction notice is posted on their apartment door. They basically have 30 days to figure out what to do, and their options are shit, a bigger pile of shit, an even bigger pile of shit, or to get on the colony ship. Amber is pragmatic, realistic, and doesn’t give a fiddler’s fuck about what anyone thinks of her. She’s tough. She’s had to be. So, she lays out all the information to Nicci and tells her what she thinks they should do. Nicci, a whiny little twat, cries and cries and cries, but finally decides she’ll do it. When they go in for the signup, Nicci goes through with no problems, but Amber is overweight and asks for a little time. (I don’t mention this for no reason, her weight is a big deal.)

So, Amber manages to lose just enough weight to get to go on the ship and it’s all of a sudden loading day. Part of their agreement was that Nicci and Amber would be together, because Amber has to take care of Nicci. Nicci’s a little bit of a wet noodle. But, since they got approved a couple of weeks apart, they aren’t in the same area. So, Amber talks to the Manifest Destiny guy nearby, Everly Scott, to try to get them back together. She doesn’t make friends with Scott.

The next thing Amber knows, the ship has crashlanded on an alien planet. Of the tens of thousands of people who were on the ship, very few survive. Scott, of course, is one of them. There are also some Fleet personnel. Amber tries to get everyone to leave the area near the burning ship, but the nice Fleet man convinces most people to stay there. However, Scott, kind of stealing Amber’s plan, suggests that the set up a “forward outpost” on a hill. Turns out that was a good idea. On the other side of the hill is a lake, and as the small group of people go to look at the lake, the ship explodes.

Meanwhile, Meoraq, a Foot and Sword of God, sees the burning ship and decides that it’s an omen for him. He’s basically a holy judge. He has a patrol area of various cities and he goes through each of those cities, and will do trials by battle. He also gets to fuck pretty much any female that he wants. Anyway, he sees the omen and decides that he’s going to go find it. On his way, he stops at a city and finds out that his father has died and he is now head of his House and he’s going to have to go take up that mantle. But before that, he’s going to go on a pilgrimage to the most holy shrine, which just happens to be in the same direction as the tower of fire.

The humans have tried to figure stuff out. Scott has decided that he’s in charge and that the 48 people, 37 men and 11 women, are a colony, and they have to take everything they have with them, including machines that won’t work and bags of cement. He’s also going to ration out all the food. Everyone is getting 3 meal bars, except for Amber, because she “has a lot of reserves”. In reality, it’s because she has argued with Scott over everything, and he has to punish her. He does this by taking food away from her and by othering her. So, she decides that she’s going to go hunting, and finds Meoraq instead.

This is a long book. It’s a long slow burn too. The thing is, that you can’t take a word out of the book and make it any better. For all that it’s long, it’s really tight. Smith put a lot of work into the book, and it’s obvious. There are also so many, many things that go on in this. Meoraq is crazy religious. His whole society is set on this religion, and he’s one of the elite in it, so he does a lot of praying and thinking about God. So when the humans show up, he has to figure out where they fit within his religion’s framework. So there’s that whole journey, which is fascinating to read. Generally, he’s pretty good with it, but he does use prayer as a passive-aggressive tool as well, which is occasionally funny. He is also very, very obvious in who he likes (Amber) and who he doesn’t (everyone else). Amber is smart, stubborn, fierce, determined, and tenacious. She also has a better grasp on what’s going on than Scott does, and she tries to get people to listen to her, but she’s really Cassandra. So, there’s the whole layer of the way that Amber gets treated and that evolution. Then you have Scott and the rest of the humans and how they behave. It’s a really interesting story and one that I really loved reading.

One nice thing about the book is that neither Amber or Meoraq are perfect. In fact, they are both pretty damn imperfect a lot of time. They are also downright unlikable at times. It takes a lot of guts to make your heroes be as unlikable as these two are at times. It really upped my enjoyment of the book.

I hated Scott from the first time we saw his officious petty ass. He was slimy and he schmoozed really well, which made it easy for everyone to believe him. And since everyone wants to have someone to blame and Amber made herself not popular, she made it really easy for him to treat her the way that he did. I mean, damn, it got really bad. And he treated Meoraq really, really bad, but even then, I think he tried Meoraq better than he treated Amber. Of course, Amber didn’t carry swords, so there’s that. I was really happy that Scott got his. I wished he got more though. His fate just didn’t go far enough, especially since Amber tried to save him time and again.

And Nicci. Too bad she didn’t stay on Earth. I’m an older sister, so I totally get wanting to care for your younger sibs, but Nicci never loved Amber and it became more and more obvious as they were on the alien planet longer.

I didn’t like any of the humans outside of Amber. Some of them tried to be decent sometimes, but trying to occasionally be decent doesn’t mean anything when it comes to being a prick all the rest of the time.

I would love to see a short story that catches us up on Amber and Meoraq and what’s going on with them now, but I’m perfectly happy if we don’t. The end was a satisfactory end for me, so I’m good with that.

Go check this out, it’s on KU. It’s worth reading, especially if you love epic scifi. Happy reading!
