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.

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-Drilled

Ava has decided that she’s going to join into all the Hard ‘n Dirty fun too. And I say yay! Drilled is hard, dirty, and fun. It’s nice to get the blue collar hero when we get a lot of rich heroes. Frankly, as long as the hero is fucking hawt, I really don’t care, but it’s still a nice change.

Today we’re down in TX. Iris Tremaine is the apple of her father Roger’s eye, at least whenever someone is paying attention to them or he wants to impress someone. The rest of the time, she’s just a piece on his chess board. And I’m not talking about the queen either, because we all know that the queen is the most powerful piece on the board. No, we’re talking pawn. When Roger barks at her to jump, Iris doesn’t even ask how high, she just starts jumping and hopes he leaves her alone. This time, his version of jump is to hire her to be the new press spokesperson for his oil company. They’ve had some problems with safety, and Roger figures that a pretty, young Junior Miss Texas runner-up who has done modeling and just graduated with a communications degree will make the company look good. In fact, he thinks that so much that instead of staying with the discreet press release that she sent out stating that she would now be working for him, he sent out one with modeling shots and all her history. Way to take away all of her credibility there, man. I don’t like Roger. He’s bombastic, racist, misogynistic, and a whole lot of other unpleasant -tics, and rants about how the media is lying about him and his business.

Then we have Cal Beaumont, half Mexican, half Creole. He had to leave Louisiana after his mother died and his ex told him that she needed to be with someone who was going somewhere, and she just didn’t see him going anywhere. So he ended up in BFE, TX so that he could work as a roustabout for Tremaine Oil. One night, while hanging out at the bar, one of the foremen was talking about how there wasn’t enough safety equipment, which Tremaine is supposed to be paying fines for. But, it just seems like it’s a bunch of talk, nothing going nowhere.

Iris and Cal first met because her tire went flat when she was at the field and she went to the motor pool to get it fixed, and Cal was the guy to do it. He figured that she was Daddy’s Spoiled Little Princess without a thought in her head other than how to spend Daddy’s money, but she has a perfect ass. She thinks he’s pretty hot, because, well, he is.

I know that Ava probably didn’t mean to make me think of someone who is pretty bombastic and is in the news a lot who also complains about the press. I’m sure that is just me though.

I like Iris. She’s smart. She’s in a hard place though. It’s one thing to know that your father is shitty in an abstract way, but he has to shove it in her face and show her exactly how shitty he is. I like Cal too. He’s all alpha without being over the top about it. He’s concerned about doing the right thing and about making sure that Iris is taken care of. He’s definitely a good guy.

I won’t admit to any wish fulfillment when Roger had a heart attack, but I also won’t deny that I was pretty happy about it. Yeah, I’m petty af sometimes.

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

 

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!

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!

Ava Sinclair-Daddy’s World

Ava thought that she was done with Daddy books, but she found that there were still some in her. Since I love her Daddy books, as well as anything else she writes, I am happy to see that she is sharing with us. Daddy’s World is a post apocalyptic, dystopian, DD/lg story. So much awesome in just one story.

So, here’s how our story goes. The Earth was hit by some asteroids, and it wiped out a lot of stuff. The majority of the people who remained went into New Bethel. New Bethel is an extremely patriachal society. Men have all the rights, and women have none. Women are severely restricted as to what they can do. I mean, it’s to the point where a woman can’t hug her own brother without her husband’s permission. It is illegal for that to happen. The women are all forced to be happy, submissive women, who only do whatever their husband wants them to. I’m sure that there are some women who are happy with that, but the one woman we see in that kind of relationship isn’t really happy. Her name is Felicia and is the twin sister of the hero of the story, Senator Roman Delaney.

In New Bethel, you have to be a homeowner in order to marry. That limits marriage to the upper classes and the ruling class, since it can be expensive to marry. A friend of Roman’s was trying to make it easier for the laboring class to own a home and marry, but he lost all his money and his home, which nullified his marriage. Roman, in his position of senator, didn’t think that was right and is more progressive. So he came up with a program called Paternas. Paternas is a way to bring rebel women from the Warrens and let men who might not otherwise have a chance to marry to marry. But first, those men become Daddies and give their future wives a chance at a childhood so that they can learn to act appropriately.

The Warrens is a dangerous place. It’s all ruins and there are no men, and no real adults. First all the men were taken away and disposed of, and then the adults, so there were a lot of girl children left around. These young women who have grown up in the Warrens are rebels. They don’t want to live in the patriarchal society of New Bethel. Roman wants to make sure those women have a chance, versus what his enemies want to do, which is give them a long walk out of a short airlock.

Kit is one of those rebels. In fact, she’s a rebel leader. But when Roman saw her file, he knew that she was the one. She has fire, intelligence, spunk, and energy. He wants someone who is going to be strong and stand up, not just be a thin, pallid, submissive woman who is going to pretend to be happy. He wants his wife to actually be happy, and he’s pretty sure that Kit and the Paternas project will do that.

I loved Kit. She doesn’t trust anyone at all, and isn’t willing to put down her walls. She is strong, very strong. She has had to be. I thought that she’s a fabulous character, and I’m hoping we get to see more of her. I liked Roman too. I think he went into the whole thing with his eyes as open as they could be, but he did underestimate Kit somewhat. Of course, I don’t think that was because he was blinded by his upbringing or anything, I think it was more that he just didn’t realize how incredibly strong and motivated that Kit would’ve had to be. I mean, she had to survive a whole lot of crap and then she led the resistance, so she had to be smart and clever and strong. There are a lot of layers going on in this story. There’s the nice surface layer, but once you get down, you get into conspiracies. There are several conspiracies though. There are bad ones and good ones and ones we don’t know a lot about. I’m really hoping for a lot more in this series so we can track what’s going to happen.

Blue-Morpho-Butterfly-Open-Wings

That first matron? She was such a bitch. I’m glad she got what was coming to her, and I wish it could’ve been even worse, because she deserved so much more.

And ugh. Felicia’s husband. What a fucking pig. Asshole. Nasty pig-fucker.

I really do want to see more of this verse to see if Roman’s plans go through. I want to find out who Jenny is. There are so many questions I need answered.

So, go check out Ava’s return to Daddy Doms. Happy reading!

Ava Sinclair-Rebel Bride

Ava is just rocking this RH gig hard. I think her Drakoryans are my fave RH heroes. Of course, that could just be because of their magic cocks. The storyline is pretty good too, so that’s could be the reason too.

Her latest book, Rebel Bride, brings us back to their world and makes things much more intense. The books aren’t really standalones, there is an overarching storyline that spans the books, although each of the books (after the first two) focus on one particular group. Each book builds on the one before, so if you are reading these, you really want to start at the first one and go through them all. You will enjoy the books a lot more if you do.

Anyway, this book features Thera the healer and the Lords of Kri’byl, Jareo, Gyrvig, Erdorin, Yrko, and Tyri. The last two boys are twins, that’s important. Thera was a woman from one of the villages who now lives in the valley that is surrounded by the mountains where all the Drakoryan lords and their brides live. The villagers were all brought there to keep them safe from the Shadowfell. The king of the Drakoryans decided that the Lords of Kri’byl should live in the village to help out the people and  keep them safe.

So, that brings us to now, roughly. Not all the villagers are happy about living where they are. Winter has come and it is cold. Since the Shadowfell burned the harvest, there just is barely enough for the people to eat. Even the Drakorayn in their castles are rationing. None of this leads to happy conditions in the village, especially as the villagers still haven’t seen the Shadowfell, so none of them quite believe that they exist. Then you get Thera, who is… angry. She is a widow. A few years before, during a winter like this, her husband and her father had gone out hunting because the Drakoryan punished their village and they had no extra food. While they were out hunting, they died. Thera blames the Drakoryan for that. I can’t blame her for that, I probably would too.

Well, because she hates the Drakoryan, she does what she can to stir up trouble. She thinks they are all liars and that they are the enemy and they have just taken away the villagers’ free will. So, she stirs and stirs and stirs until the pot comes to a boil and boils over. The Witches decree that there is only one way to make things better. Thera is to mate with the Lords of Kri’byl.

Overall, I like Thera. But, there are a few times where I really don’t like her. She knew what she was doing. I’m not sure what good she thought she was going to do though. I get being angry and wanting revenge, and I think that in her place, I probably would want revenge on the people who I blamed for my husband’s death too, but there’s a difference between revenge and cutting off your nose to spite your face. I think the guys were probably a little more patient with her than I would’ve been at times. I can’t wait to see where the next one is going to take us. It’s going to be a doozy.

calm-waters-cave-cold-464350

I can’t wait to see how the issue with Zara and the king is going to change things. The Witches being gone is going to be interesting too.

OK, that’s all I have to say today. Happy reading!
