Zoe Blake-Damaged Doll

Oh, my sweet summer children, what a dark and chilling tale we have today. Zoe decided that Broken Doll, formerly My Name Is Jane from When the Darkness Wins, needed to have a sequel, and thus, Damaged Doll was born.

Warning, this is not a standalone. You have to have read Broken Doll in order to know what’s going on. You will be well and truly lost. Warning the second, this is not a pretty tale. This is not a light tale. This is dark. This is chilling. This may even be horrific. This is also a wonderful read, albeit one that’s going to totally fuck with your head, because, well, Zoe thinks it’s fun to do that. And since I apparently think it’s fun to read it, I don’t get to complain all that much when my head is completely done in. And really, I don’t complain all that much, because I really do like to read the mindfuckery stuff.

This picks up right where BD leaves off, which means I’m not going to tell you all that much about it, because I don’t want to spoil Broken Doll if you haven’t read it yet, and if you like dark and twisted, I’m telling you, you really should. We still get all Jane’s inner monologue, but now we’re also getting flashbacks of Jane’s life before everything happened. It’s really interesting to find out more about Jane.

Like I said when I reviewed WtDW, this plays into a very particular fear of mine, which makes it both chilling and fascinating to read. It’s like when you know that the horror movie is going to scare the pants off you, but you can’t walk away from it because you want to watch it so much? Yeah, that’s what’s happening here. I know that this feeds that fear, but I know that the story is just so good. It gives me the shivers in just the right way, if that makes sense.

There aren’t any spoilers down there, because it is a short read and any kind of spoiler will spoil everything. So, go read it. Happy reading!

Emily Tilton-A Shameful Experiment

I love Emily Tilton. She writes such lovely, lovely words. They are lovely and dirty and just fun to read. Part of what makes them so dirty is the way that Emily uses language. Literally, there is no one I’ve read that uses language the way that she does when she’s talking about shame, humiliation, and objectification. She truly has no equal. So, let’s talk about A Shameful Experiment and the way that Emily uses language.

So, in this book, we’re in Emily’s Selecta universe. Selecta is a huge corporation with its fingers in all the pies of the world. They own politicians, police (literally), and basically the world, through various shell companies. The people in charge at Selecta are very into traditional gender roles, spanking, submissive sex, and all that fun stuff. You’d be amazed at how much they manipulate the world to make it ideal for their various enterprises, which generally involve training young women to be concubines and selling off their services for a period of time.

With this one, Selecta, along with 2 other big businesses, and some governmental stuff, have sponsored a space mission to Saturn. They are sending off a number of ridiculously hot people who aren’t allowed to have sex for two years into space. When they are there, they are going to do an experiment with some seriously delicate sciencey stuff. However, that’s not exactly what happens.

Tillie is a rebel, she’s worked hard her entire life to stay out from under the eyes of the government and corporations, but when she sees the authorities coming her way, she ducks under a fence and ends up in the spaceship, hiding in a box full of delicate sciencey stuff, which she ends up breaking.

When they find out that they have a stowaway, the astronauts are rightly pissed because everything got broken, and then Mission Control tells them that she’s going to have a job. Tillie is their new Sexual Relief Device. In other words, she’s their fucktoy for the next 2 years. Pretty much anything any of the men or women on the crew wants to do to her, sexually, is all good.

OK, so here’s where Emily’s genius with language comes in. She uses clinical language to describe having sex in a way that would be wrong when it came from anyone else, but is incredibly erotic coming from her. If I read a sentence with an older guy telling a 19 year old virgin that he was going to strap her bottom and then put his penis in her anus because that’s how naughty girls get fucked in any book other than one of Emily’s I would possibly cringe a little bit. But, the way that Emily does it and the way that she establishes her world from the very beginning, makes the language fit in.

In this book, when what’s going to happen to Tillie is being discussed, with her sitting right there but without her input, instead of talking about her vulva, her bottom, her mouth, it’s all about the vulva, the bottom, the mouth. I loved that, because it really emphasized what was happening to Tillie and what her new role was.

I know that I’m not doing Emily’s book or her talent justice at all. I don’t know that it’s anything that I can actually explain well. But, I tried. And I know that every time I read one of her books, I’m going to be in awe as to how talented Emily is and how the way that she uses language and the concepts of shame, humiliation, degradation, and objectification so well. And I will always agree with Rayanna Jamison, who says that Emily is the Queen of Filth.

Emily has a large catalog, much of it in KU, so it’s easy to get ahold of her books. If you like her and join her newsletter, you can also request 2 of her backlog books, as long as they are over 6 months old. She writes all kinds of books, from historical to age play, so you should have no problems finding the one that you really want to read.

OK, that’s all for me for today. Really, go check out Emily’s books. You won’t be sorry! Happy reading!

Here’s some pretty stars to look at, since today’s book takes place in space.

BLURB:

 

“Why would I let the world see him? He’s imperfect. No, he needs to stick to the shadows where he’ll not bring shame to this family.”

 

William Cavendish is…different. Too much so for his merciless father to bear publicly. He was hidden away from the world his entire life until, in one dark moment, he did the unthinkable to save his beloved brother, gaining his own freedom in the process. But liberty has its own price. William struggles with a world he doesn’t understand, emotions he’s never experienced…and an alarming taste for the dark side he’s discovered dwelling within him.

 

Formally educated in law, Tamara Bennett is unlike most women of the day. Not bad for the daughter of a lowly lady’s maid. When she learns a secret society was responsible for the torture of her closest acquaintance, Victoria Cavendish, she vows to employ any and all means—legal or otherwise—to bring the society to its knees. At her side is Victoria herself, as well as Victoria’s husband, Nicholas, and his brother—the intriguing and troubled William.

 

Delving ever deeper into London’s darkest shadows, an undeniable attraction blooms between William and Tamara, bringing them closer and closer…until their actions stir up perilous forces determined to tear them apart.

Sara Fields-Feral

Remember how I said that Measha’s book got caught in King ‘Zon’s foolishness last week and that she wasn’t the only one? Yeah, it hit Sara too. Her newest book, Feral, fell into the black hole too. But it’s out now and you can get this filthy little book right onto your Kindle, so life is good.

So, here we go. Cosima is a journalist. More than just that, she’s a journalist with an advanced science degree. She’s heard rumors about Echelon 67 and that there are weird experiments going on out there, and as a scientific journalist, she has a huge bump of curiosity when it comes to things like aliens, genetic experiments, and other scientific stuff. So, the fact that she managed to breach Echelon 67 and get some information was just perfect. What Cosima doesn’t realize right off is that what she did was just too easy. She doesn’t know that there are other things going on. But, then she gets caught by some soldiery types and taken to their headquarters.

After that happened, the guys are talking about various subjects when in runs a huge red male who literally slaughters everyone in pretty much the nastiest way possible, and then he turns to Cosima. He has plans for her, but not the same kind of plans as everyone else. He’s going to fuck her. Of course, it may still be fucking her to death, but he still is going to fuck her. He grabs her and starts stripping her. Then in runs another huge red male who grabs the first guy off of her, and starts to beat the crap out of him right before he grabs her and runs, runs so far away. They had to get away.

Sorry, ’80s moment.

Anyway, it turns out that guy number 2 is Axel. He is an experiment. One hundred years ago, an alien spaceship crashed on Earth, and the government has taken tech and genetic information and used it. They wanted to create super soldiers, so they tried really hard, and did a lot of experiments, and killed a lot of their experiments after torturing them. As of right now, there are only 2 left, Axel and his much, much, much crazier brother, Saleos. And Cosima is the very last human left in Echelon 67, because Saleos killed all the rest of them.

I really enjoyed reading this one. It’s pretty hot and sexy, and it’s got a nice story to it, which I always enjoy. I mean, there is nothing wrong with a hot story that’s all sex and then some, because you know that I will read the fuck out of that, but a woman can’t survive on books that are pure sex alone. She does need some story, and Sara was more than willing to put that into this story for us. I have to admit that I did feel a little sorry for Saleos. His backstory is so sad, of course, he has agency and he could make different choices, but considering what happened to him, I can see what makes it hard for him to not and how it’s much easier to just be the way that he is.

blue-sky-cave-dark-826490

Of course, Saleos is still nucking futz, and the way that he herds Axel and Cosima is just beyond totally insane. He had some serious subscriptions going on.

I would love to see more of Cosima and Axel.

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

Measha Stone-Becoming His Pet

We’re finally getting to Becoming His Pet, at long last. I say at long last because Amazon took for fucking ever to get off their collective asses to finally upload it. It was supposed to come out last week, but didn’t actually release until this week. Poor Measha, she’s not the only one this happened to. You would think that a huge company like Amazon would be able to make sure that they get their jobs done when they are supposed to, but obviously not. And then, there’s been the slow down on my part. This has been a crazy few days for me, for so many reasons, and I think that we might actually have everything under better control. Maybe. Gods, I only hope so. But anyway, enough of that, let’s talk hot, dark, and kinky.

So, this one is the 5th one in Measha’s Owned and Protected series. They are all standalones, but they are interconnected, in that the guys are all friends, brothers, cousins, whatever. They all know each other. We met Greg, the hero in this book, in the last one, which focused on his brother. But now, it’s Greg’s turn, and I think that he may be the most extreme of all the guys in the series as of yet, but ye gads and fishes, it was amazing to read.

Elenora is working for a florist, arranging the bouquets. She knows that the florist is connected to organized crime, but she mostly stays out of it. She’s not there to mess with whatever he’s got going on, she has another motive altogether. But when two guys come in and tell her to stay at the front and she hears them screaming at her boss in Italian, Nora can’t seem to avoid needing to find out what’s going on. And what’s going on is that those guys are killing the florist and threatening to kill her. Luckily for Nora, Greg had just come into the shop to order flowers for his niece’s swim team. He’s got a gun, he knows how to use it, and he’s going to keep Nora safe, come hell or high water.

Of course, Nora doesn’t want to drag him into her problems. Yeah, he got her out of the building after the shooting, but she knows that all she has to do is to call her dead father’s friend, and he will get her someplace safe. All she has to do is get away from him, something that is much easier said than done, apparently, since Greg seems to know exactly what she’s thinking, all the damn time. He decides that the best place to keep her safe is his hunting cabin out in the woods. But this is probably not the kind of hunting you may be thinking of.

As Pet is in the title, you can probably guess that there is some pet play. I say some, but I mean allllll the pet play. All that and even more, including a crate and a naughty tail.

Greg and Nora are an interesting couple. Nora is hiding a lot of secrets and doesn’t really want to share them, but they finally do come out, in dribs and drabs, and generally at the very worst time, because that’s the way that it always works. Greg’s hiding stuff too, because well, of course. They are both hiding things because they think that it’s in the best interests of the other and they are both trying to keep the other safe. Sadly, for Nora at least, it doesn’t work out that way, because she doesn’t know as much as she thinks she does. Oh well. I loved this book and I can’t wait for the next book in this series, because while they all feature pet play, they all have various aspects of it, so it’s a good way to read about the kink, and they are all just ridiculously hot.

fox

OK, can we talk about that fox hunt? When I say ridiculously hot, it’s this particular scene I mean, because dayum. It’s everything I never knew I wanted to read about. I’ve always been against fox hunting, but Greg may have changed my mind here.

That’s all I have to say today. Go check out all of Measha’s books, you won’t be disappointed. Happy reading!
