The 3 Ms-Deliciously Decadent

Maddie, Morganna, and Meredith are back with some Deliciously Decadent stories. I love anything that any of them write on their own, Maddie has shown up here a lot, so you probably know that. None of the stories are co-written, but you are getting a bunch of stories gathered together by the 3 ladies, so it’s all good.

Most of these stories are pretty quick to read, like 10-15 minutes, or at least 10-15 minutes for me. There are a few, like Doctor’s Orders, by Maddie, and Creed’s Joy, by Morganna, that took me a little longer to read them. Not a whole lot longer, but some.

There are some that I would probably more consider a slice of life kind of story, because they are just quick peeks at the lives that the couples in them are living. I would Clarissa’s Stern Daddy and Lucy’s Little Weekend, both by Meredith in this category. We just get a little snippet of a larger story. It’s like someone took an hour or a day of your life and put it on a page. Both of these stories are really sweet and loving, and each shows a happy DD/lg relationship, even if Daddy isn’t necessarily all that happy right that second. There is no drama, no angst, just life.

There is one story that made me bawl my fucking eyes out, and it’s hard to do that in a really short story, and this one is. It’s another Meredith O’Reilly story, and she just wanted to kill me, I think. It’s called A Soldier’s Homecoming. On my Kindle, it runs from 58% to 62%, and took about 7 minutes for me to read. Yes, I went back and checked the percentage and the timing on it. I would tell you the page amount, but I don’t get that on most ARCs. I’m pointing out all those stats so that I can emphasize just how much emotion Meredith packed into this story.

Most of the stories are pretty contemporary, but there are a couple of scifi stories tossed in there, just for fun. You also get a nice pirate story in there as well.

All in all, this book is packed full of stories that you can read when you need a lift, or when you only have a couple of minutes, or you just want to read 3 great authors.

I wanted a picture of something that was delicious and decadent, and I think I succeeded.

Ava Sinclair-Rough Riding Daddies

I have to admit that I am terrible about reading blurbs, especially when it comes to authors I am familiar with and that I like to read. So, when I heard the title Rough Riding Daddies, I expected a menage. Guess what? It’s not. Instead, it’s a story of two couples and how they are intertwined with each other and how life changes. While I would’ve been perfectly happy with a menage story, I’m happier that the story went the way that it did.

Honey and Lennox are one couple. They are in a 24/7 DD/lg relationship. And they are very happy. Lennox is a rancher and a former rodeo rider. Honey is just about to graduate college. She’s been really, really stressed, so Lennox is keeping a secret from her. They have a couple who are friends, who are also in a DD/lg relationship, Joy and Garrett. Joy helped to mentor Honey when she and Lennox were first getting into their relationship and as Honey was figuring out who she was when it came to submission. She and Joy are now BFFs. But, now Joy and Garrett have broken up, and have been for about 3 months. Lennox has known about it, but he hasn’t told Honey because her last semester has been really hard on her. He figured that he’d have time to warn her before her graduation ceremony, but sadly, that didn’t happen. What even Lennox didn’t know is that Garrett has a new girlfriend and a new babygirl.

Garrett has brought his new babygirl, Amy, to the graduation. He had no clue that Lennox hadn’t told Honey or that Joy hadn’t been in touch with her, so that she had no idea that the relationship had ended. But Garrett didn’t warn Lennox that he’d be bringing Amy, so when Honey runs up to them and only sees Amy from the back, she grabs her and calls her Joy. Oops.

As you probably can guess, Honey wasn’t a happy little girl over what was happening. And she had absolutely no problems with letting anyone know about it either. Which of course, isn’t ever a good thing.

Like I said early, this book is really about both couples and how they are entwined together. Lennox and Garrett are best friends and knew each other from the competitive rodeo circle. Lennox and Joy are responsible for introducing Honey and Garrett. Joy mentored Honey and they became good friends. See, totally entwined. But when you pull one part of that equation out and add in a new factor, things get wonky. It can be hard to cope when your support system changes and the things that you thought you knew change.

But that’s not all that this story is about. It’s also about the fear of change and how to handle that change. It’s about finding your happy and fighting for your happy. It’s also about trying to find where you belong. I know that sounds like a whole lot of stuff to be wrapped up in one book about a pair of hot Daddies, but it’s all there. And it’s all wrapped up in a good story that you can really enjoy.

barn-1364280_1920

OK, frankly I think that Joy isn’t all that nice a person. I can see where Honey might’ve become good friends with her, but since then, I just don’t think she’s all that.

That’s all I have to say today. Go read the book! Happy reading!

Allysa Hart & Rayanna Jamison-Santa Daddy

We all know that I will read the fuck out of a good Daddy book, and when it comes to Ally and Rayanna, I know that their books are going to be good. Ally’s stories tend to be on the lighter side of the street and relatively clean. Rayanna will go darker and dirtier. But when it comes to Christmas, they came together perfectly on Santa Daddy. And I will never look at candy canes the same way again.

Yule Claus has a rather famous father, and now that’s turned 39, it’s time for him to take over his father’s business. He is now going to be Santa Claus. There’s just one tiny little catch. He has to choose his Mrs. Claus from the non-believers before Christmas. Normally, that wouldn’t be too much of a problem, but Yule’s birthday is 2 weeks prior to Christmas, so he has 14 days to find the perfect woman off the non-believer list, convert her, and get her to marry him. Christmas magic means that this should be no problem, right? Well…

Luckily for Yule, there is only one woman in his age bracket on the non-believer list, and oh yeah, on the naughty list too. Her name is Crystal and she lives in Las Vegas. She thinks that Santa is made up by the toy companies and that Christmas is just a commercial holiday that has become way too much and only encourages over-consumption. (So, OK, she does have a little bit of a point there.) She’s never really celebrated Christmas and she says she’s never wanted to. So, when Yule pops into her house, literally, in full Santa regalia, she thinks he’s a crazy man who is assaulting her by spanking her.

Yule and Crystal take a journey to help her learn to enjoy the magic of Christmas and to find the joy of the holiday. Of course, that means that he’s about to become her Daddy, but hey, that works really well. I mean, what Daddy doesn’t want his little girl to love Christmas and have a good time. One of the nice things about this story is that while there is sex, it isn’t as down and dirty as it could otherwise be, and it never happens while Crystal is in Little space. I’ve seen it done both ways, and I have no preference either way, but it’s not often that you see it separated out, so it’s a very nice difference. And it’s a very definite choice to not do that, we see that decision being made. And I think that the choices about sex in this story work really well to the story’s benefit. I’m never going to turn down hot and steamy sex in a story, but this is not that book. Does any of that make sense? It does to me, at least, so hopefully I was able to translate it over to other people.

I like Yule. I think he has a sense of humor and he’s very kind and caring, which of course, you would expect Santa to be, but he’s so nurturing to and careful of Crystal, the perfect Daddy. I mostly like Crystal. There are a couple of times when I thought she was a little cynical and jaded, which made it a little hard for me to like her, but they aren’t big sections of the story.

I do believe that this will definitely join my Christmas book lineup every year.

OK, Vixen sounds like someone I’d love to get to know. And Marcus was too funny. I love his comment about how he’s still as gay as gay can be, but he’s planning on getting back on the naughty list next year, lol.

Crystal’s letters literally made me cry. And I loved that there were tear marks on the one. It gave me a happysad.

OK, that’s all I have on this one. Seriously, do yourself a favor, and check it out. Happy reading!

Ava Sinclair-Scary Daddy

Happy Halloween! OK, OK, it’s 4 days early, but I won’t tell if you don’t tell. And hopefully, the Daddies in Scary Daddy won’t be too upset about it either. Because we all know that would be so, so bad, right?

So, we open on Lindy and Rowan, 2 besties who are sharing a house in a neighborhood with a strict HOA. That means that the head of the HOA, Clay, has already told them that they can’t have their Halloween Hello Kitty up in their yard, because it’s against the rules, which they would’ve known if they had read the manual, which they didn’t. That is making it hard for them to get into the Halloween spirit, which really sucks, as it’s their favorite holiday. But they really, really want to put Hello Kitty up just for Halloween night and the trick-or-treaters. So, they turn off their favorite movie, Hocus Pocus, and might I just add one of my favorite Halloween movies, and go to talk to Clay.

When they get to the house, Clay’s partner Jon opens the door and seems attracted to Lindy, who swears she feels him grab her ass, even though he’s way out of arm reach. Clay turns the ladies down, which means Rowan and Lindy, at Rowan’s instigation, are going to do something about it. Something that may involve Halloween night, rotten duck eggs, and toilet paper.

However, Clay and Jon are onto the ladies and they know that Rowan and Lindy are going to do something about it, which means it’s going to be Clay’s great pleasure to deal with Rowan and Jon’s to deal with Lindy. Of course, our naughty little girls might not be happy with what their Daddy and Papa have planned, but nobody asked them, did they?

This is short read and a very cute Halloween story. Ava does Daddy stories so well, and she showed the different kinds of Daddies that Jon and Clay are from each other without having to really shove it in our face or anything, she just had them going about their business. I would so love to read more about Jon and Lindy and Clay and Rowan, even if it’s just about one of the couples.

1528478_092716-omd-hocus-pocus-thumb

OK, I kind of feel sorry for Clay and Jon. It can’t be all that easy being them.

That’s all I have to say today. It’s short and sweet, but that’s because this book was. Go check it out, as well as all of Ava’s other books. Happy reading!

Ava Sinclair-Camp Daddy

Ava Sinclair has gone back to her Daddy roots for this one, and we get not just one dedicated Daddy Dom, but two, and they have set up Camp Daddy for their wives.

We have two pairs of best friends. Elana and Shelby are lifelong friends who married Zane and Archer, best friends and former Marines. Archer and Zane are Doms and they first met Shelby and Elana when they walked into the club where the guys were members. They had a double wedding, and were really close. However, Zane and Elana moved away a little while ago, so they haven’t been able to get together as much. The foursome has a tradition of renting a little cabin for the weekend and having a lot of kinkery fuckery fun. But in the recent past, that hasn’t been happening in either relationship. Both couples have ceased in any kink in their lives, and no one is really happy. So the guys planned this weekend for everyone to get together, but also so that they could get back to where they were, and basically have a Daddy boot camp for their subs. They’ve never really had the DD/lg dynamic before, but it’s something that they are going to try. All the guys know is that they aren’t happy, their wives aren’t happy, and as the Domly types, it’s their job to try and make it right.

Their camp starts bright and early in the morning, after the women had a few too many drinks, and they are woken up way too early. Shelby ends up being spanked then. Then when she and Elana find out what they are supposed to wear, Elana ends up with a belting.

There are a lot of things that I like about this book. One of them is the fact that it shows that marriages aren’t easy and that even the happiest couple can end up at a point where there is a huge chasm in between the couple. It doesn’t even have to start big either. Just a tiny little change can make a huge difference as it goes on. And it doesn’t take a whole lot for that chasm to be more than someone can jump over and just too much work to try to bridge, especially if you feel like you are the only one trying to bridge that divide. So often, in romances, we get the wedding and they ride off into the sunset, happily ever after, so I like to see what happens after the HEA.

OMG, I need to get a rubber ducky just like the one in the book. It would match my rubber ducky shower curtain, and it would definitely put new meaning to the rubber ducky song.

I love that the guys admit that they screwed up. The Domly alpha types generally get seen as infallible, so seeing that they make mistakes and screw up just like everyone else does is always good. I don’t like seeing anyone fail or anything, but Daddies are human too and Daddies can make mistakes that cause serious problems.

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

Ava Sinclair-The Daddy Treatment

Ava Sinclair is one of the Queens of Daddy Dom and age play books. I love reading whatever she writes, but there is something about her Daddy books which I really like. And, mostly, this one is no different. I 98% loved The Daddy Treatment.

In this world, the rich get richer and the poor get bent over the table and fucked up the ass without lube, a reach around, or dinner, and are expected to be happy about it, and then tossed in the dung heap. Kerry has had a shitty life and has had to deal with neglect and abuse through her whole life. She’s made all kinds of poor choices just so that she could actually feel something, but it didn’t always work. Finally, out of sheer desperation, she goes to a small local store and held it up. Sadly, it didn’t help, and it just made things worse. She ended up getting arrested and then sentenced to prison. She signed paperwork to go to an experimental rehab program.

Eli is a former soldier and a scientist. Together with his partner, he designed a program that would take women who have made such poor choices and help them turn their lives around. Basically, they take the women back to their childhood and give them all the love and cherishing that a Daddy is supposed to give his little girl. One tool they use to do this is a memory retrieval program. It goes into the women’s minds and gets all the memories of their lives. The women don ‘t know that it happens because they are knocked out while it happens. The doctors and the guardians in the program use that information to help establish a bond with their charge.

Eli has seen something about Kerry, and he wants her to be his little girl. He goes through her memories and sees that her mother always called her Sugar, which is now what everyone is going to call her. He’s going to do everything he can to get through to her and help her become the person that she could be.

Like I said before, I 98% loved this book. The one thing I didn’t like was the fact that they were using the women’s memories to create that bond with their Daddies, without the women knowing what’s happening. I can understand why they did it and it works within the framework of the story. I had to sit and figure out why I didn’t like it, and after some time, I was able to figure it out. I spent a lot of time around someone who was manipulative and gaslighted me when I was younger. This person liked to play mind games. To me, that’s what it felt like was going on, that they were using that information to play mind games on the women. Like I said, I understand why they did it, and it gives them a jumpstart into the bonding process, which would otherwise be very difficult for these ladies. I just had to take the time to process my feelings and separate out what I felt versus what was going on in the book, if that makes sense. And all of this is just my personal feelings and it didn’t ruin my enjoyment of the book.

Even with the jumpstart on the process, it had to be hard for these women to trust. I mean, if you look at Sugar, she jumps straight to anger and bypasses anything that shows vulnerability. It is really hard to be vulnerable, especially if you have spent your life being let down, neglected, or abused. Being scared feeds into being angry, and it’s a lot easier to be angry and attack everyone so that you hurt them before they can hurt you. It makes you feel strong instead of weak and vulnerable. It’s a hard and tiring way to live though.

I love that when Sugar finds out about the memories that she is ready to walk. She isn’t going to just forgive and forget immediately. I also like that what happened with her has changed the program and they will tell the women that they accessed her memories. That makes me happy.

I think Mitzi needed some more work, and it was shitty of Eli’s partner to go behind his back and have Sugar’s first encounter with another little girl be Mitzi. He had to have know what would happen, but he just had to be right.

OK, that’s all I have to say about this one today. Go check out all of Ava’s books,  you won’t regret it! Happy reading!

Measha Stone-Until Daddy

If you’ve been around for a while, you know that I love Measha’s books. And we all know that books that I love to read are books that I love to share. So, today, I’m sharing Until Daddy by Measha.

This is an age play/DD/lg story. Carissa has started hanging out at Dark Lace, the local BDSM club. Before Christmas, she meets Jamison there. They play once, and then she doesn’t answer his texts or calls and doesn’t call him. Carissa is positive that kink relationships don’t work, so she’s more than happy to have a play partner, but she doesn’t want anything more, even if she had a lot of fun playing with Jamison. She keeps going to the club and asks if he’s there every time she goes, but she’s always told that he’s not. Except he always is, since he’s part owner.

Eventually, he confronts Carissa and tells her what he wants. She tells him that there’s no point in it. So they make a deal. She’ll be his for 1 month, and then they’ll see what happens. And oh yeah, she’ll call him Daddy. Jamison is positive that she will realize that they belong together. Carissa is bound and determined to make sure that she’s protecting herself and her heart. She’s been hurt because everyone in her life has hurt or abandoned her, and she’s not going to let it happen again, which is why she agrees to the expiration date.

I liked both Carissa and Jamison. They are both damaged. That damage has made them both stronger and weaker. If you look at a broken bone, the strongest spot on it is going to be where it has healed because bone has had to grow up and around it. It’s the same with Carissa and Jamison. The fact that they have been damaged has made them strong. But at the same time, it’s left them with huge glaring blind spots and other difficulties, including trust and commitment. So, see, stronger and weaker. There’s a lot going on in this book outside of the really hot sex and the great love story, but for me, the most important part of the story is the journies that Carissa and Jamison take to figure out who they are separately and together. Of course, that journey isn’t an easy one, it never is. The things that are most worth it never are easy, right?

black-lace-sabrina

OMG, Jamison’s father. What a fucking sleaze. Frankly, I thought that he might have done what Carissa suggested from the very beginning, but then again, I’m devious that way. And his father is one of Jamison’s huge blind spots. I mean, he’s spent so many years trying to make the man proud of him that he can’t see anything else.

OK, that’s all I have to say about this one today. Go check it out on the all mighty Zon and tell me what you think. Happy reading!
