Merel Pierce-Yes, Alpha

Oh my dears, have I got an interesting story for you today. It’s Merel Pierce’s latest Omegaverse. It’s a little different than some of the other MF stories I’ve featured before. This one is totally consensual and it’s pretty light. Yes, Alpha is an awesome story and is a good choice for people who are wanting to get into Omegaverse but who aren’t a fan of the darker end of the trope.

So, here’s the way this one goes. Meghan has been dragged into an exclusive club by a friend from work. What Meghan doesn’t know is that it’s a very exclusive BDSM club. She’s pretty sure that she isn’t all that into it, and when some random Alpha grabs her, she tries to get away from him. In walks Daniel. He saves her from the random Alpha by telling him that she’s there as his guest. Then he takes her to watch some of the fun and games at the club, because if she leaves too early, the icky yucky Alpha might catch her. He gives her his number, and then waits for her to get back to him.

This is a super quick read, one I really liked. I like the basic premise of the story. It’s a very interesting view of the O-verse, and one I’m looking forward to seeing more of. Since this was the first in the series, I think we will definitely see more. I think that it will probably be Meghan and Daniel, at least I hope so.

OK, that’s all for today. No spoilers today, because it’s so short. Go check it out! Happy reading!

Leann Ryans-In the Darkness & In the Light

I’m coming to you from my blogging lair deep in the Maine woods, also known as my bedroom. Still deep in the Maine woods. Flocks of turkeys wander by, and a moose has been known to show up once or twice. My move is finished, and now I’m in the unpacking stage. I almost think that’s the hardest part. Anyway, now that it’s over with, I can finally catch up on all the wonderful books I’ve been reading and needing to blog. Today, we have a duet from Leann Ryans, In the Darkness and In the Light.

Since it’s a Leann Ryans duet, you know that it’s an Omegaverse story. It’s on the darker side of her stories. Leann generally writes on the lighter end and this ain’t that.

This is our story. It starts with an Omega, Cara. Her mother has sold her to 4 Alphas, who have since kept her locked away in a dark room, chained up, and naked. She’s there to meet all their needs. ALLLLLL their needs. She doesn’t know their names. She barely even knows what they look like. She only knows them by their scents, Pine, Grass, Water, and Cinnamon. Each of them wants something in particular, and the longer she’s there, the more she knows what they want, and she does what she can to make them happy. The happier they are, the better her life is. Although it doesn’t seem like she could ever make Pine happy.

Things happen, and then there’s a cliffhanger. That’s not a spoiler, since Leann has put it in the blurb of the book. And as it’s a duet, it’s pretty much to be expected. But the second book is out right now, so it’s all good.

The second part of the book is a bit lighter than the first part, but that doesn’t mean that they didn’t have some serious problems in it, because they do. It’s just lighter in tone.

No spoilers today, darlings. Go check out this duet! Happy reading!

K Webster-Dr. Dan

K is back to her taboo town, which means we get a great story as well as some super sexiness. I think, though, that Dr. Dan is the most intense of all the taboo treats. As always, this is a standalone, but it is interconnected with several of the other books. You don’t have to have read them all to read and enjoy this one, but you will probably get more enjoyment out of it if you do.

So, here’s the story. Lauren is 18 and trying to finish off her last year of high school. The problem is that she’s also sick, even though she’s trying really hard to deny it. She tells everyone that she has period pain, or something else, but doesn’t really ever say it’s something more serious. She’s living in a land of denial because her mother died a couple of years ago, so she’s afraid that she’s going to die if she ever finds out what is wrong.

Enter Dr. Dan, or Dr. DumDum, a drop dead daddy of a doctor. He works in the local ER, and when Lauren comes in to get treated, there’s just something about her that he’s drawn to. There’s something just so vulnerable and yet so brash about her that is enticing. He wants to do what he can to make her feel better, but she refuses to acknowledge that there’s a problem. That doesn’t stop Dan though.

Lauren’s journey is what makes this one so intense, in my opinion. Each of the stories has something that causes some drama or tension in the story, but none of them are quite like this one. I really felt for Lauren. I get being scared like that. I think that we all do, to one extent or another. We don’t want to face what’s happening because if we face it and acknowledge it, we have to deal with it, and that’s just scary as fuck, you know? It’s better to live in denial, even if it isn’t really. But if you live in denial, the bad thing is never going to happen.

I love Daniel and Lauren’s family. And root beer floats.

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

 

Ava Sinclair-Cry for Daddy

First of all, I’d like to apologize for my radio silence. I’m getting over a miserable cold, and I’m 5 days away from a move. There’s much going on in Clara-land, and trying to get everything going means that something falls by the way sometimes. So, if you’ll bear with me for a few days, I’d be ever so grateful.

So, for today, we have Ava’s latest Daddy book. Cry For Daddy is a darker book than some of the others that Ava has written, at least when it starts out. It has some really difficult moments in it, as well as some sad ones.

Maisie grew up in foster care. Her life wasn’t happy, and good things didn’t happen to her. Now she’s aged out of the system and living in a house with another young woman. One she’s never spoken to, really. When they talk, they do it by note, except for once. She works in a crappy restaurant where she’s a waitress and scrapes a living. But, when she’s not at work, she shoplifts or picks pockets. That little bit of thievery gives her the feel of control, even if she doesn’t really have a lot of control or power in her life.

What Maisie doesn’t know is that there is a man following her. He knows her every move. He knows her entire history from birth up to the current moment. He may even know her better than she knows herself at this point. He is obsessed with her, and he has plans for her. She doesn’t know yet, but he’s going to be her Daddy and take such good care of her. The best care of her ever.

I love the way that Ava did this. We don’t know his name. All we know is that he’s following her. I love that the chapters from his POV early in the book give us no clue about him at all. We just see him following Maisie and his inner dialogue is all about her and what he already knows about her and what more he is learning about her. It’s kind of a mindfuck, really, the way that it’s written. And it’s so totally fucking awesome.

I like Maisie mostly. I can relate a lot to her in a lot of ways. That always makes a book feel so much more real to me. I like feeling that intense connection to a character sometimes. I don’t need it all the time, and in fact, I couldn’t handle that kind of connection in every book. It would probably rub my insides raw, but in those books where it does happen? Wow. And this definitely was a wow.

There were parts that made me quite angry. I mean, I wanted to walk into the book and smack Daddy. There were times that I really think that he deserved it too.

view-4011285_1920

Normally I wouldn’t put a discussion about the title in my spoiler section, but I think that this is the right place for it. It’s the kind of wordplay that I really like in a title, and there are so many ways that the phrase cry for Daddy can be taken. I love that it’s all in the eye of the reader.

OK, that’s all for this one. I highly recommend that you go check it out. Happy reading!

Golden Angel-Defended

The 13th book in the Black Light world is a new one for the world. We’ve brushed up against the DD/lg kink a couple of times in the Roulette books, but never a full-on Daddy book, until now, with Defended.

Here’s our story. Melody, a sweet, loving person, has been arrested because when the cops busted into the party that she was at, someone took advantage of the fact that her purse was laying around, unsupervised, and dropped some drugs into it before the cops got there. When she handed her purse over to be searched, the cops find the drugs and arrest her. Now, she’s in court, waiting to see if she’s going to end up going to jail. Luckily for Melody, Kawan Park exists.

And why is this lucky for her? Well, Kawan is a high-powered lawyer, and he’s pretty much demolishing the cop who arrested her. In fact, he demolishes the man so much that the judge drops the charges and our plucky heroine gets to go free. So, yay for Kawan!

Kawan is a new lawyer working at the firm that represents Black Light. Because of that, he gets to be a member, which is great for him, because he’s a Daddy Dom. We know this law firm because 2 of the partners, Connor and Alexander, have shown up in their own Roulette stories. In fact, Jennifer Bene wrote Alexander and Sienna’s story in the first Roulette, Wet. Fantastic story. Anyway, I digress. Kawan has just moved to DC to join their firm because he had to get away from where he was living. He had a terrible break up with a nasty woman who he thought would be his little girl forever, but Krissy just wasn’t all that nice.

So, on his first trip to Black Light, he looks up and who do you think he sees? That’s right, he sees Melody. Melody’s roommate Peggy (booooooo hisssssss) has a boyfriend named Elliot. Elliot is a Domly type, and he has brought Peggy to the club to play, and Melody came with them. It’s a celebration for Melody not going to jail. When Melody notices Kawan, she drops to the floor, trying to hide. Which causes Peggy to laugh, Elliot to get mad (at Peggy), and Kawan to get protective.

I really like Melody. She really is just a sweet person with a truly lovely soul. She just wants to make everyone happy around her. I would really love to be around her, because she just seems like she would be a joy. She’s also wicked smart. She’s a PhD in science, trying to do something about diabetes and mental health in reference to gut microbes. So, she looks at a lot of smears under microscopes. But the reason that she went into this particular field is because of her mother. So, see, sweet and loving and wanting to make everyone happy.

Kawan is a good man. He really is honorable and just a decent guy. He really wants to have a little girl that he can love and take care of and spoil senseless. And spank, but that’s kind of a given, considering he’s a Daddy. I think that he also has a little bit of a hero complex going on. Not a big one, just a little bit.

Then there is Peggy. I pretty much hate, despise, and loathe Peggy. I didn’t like her from the very first word that the woman utters. Melody spends way too much time managing her and tiptoeing around her. Peggy needs to grow the fuck up.

I love how Melody lays the smackdown on Peggy. It was totally awesome, and I cheered for her.

OK, that’s all for today! Go check out the entire Black Light world! Happy reading!

Loki Renard-Seeded

Seeded is a fun and filthy little story. It takes in the far future, one where the history is even crazier than our present. It’s a RH/menage kind of story, and there are definitely some interesting goings-on.

So, Lyra has worked really, really, really hard to get her job. She orbits the earth in a shuttle, doing all kinds of surveillance and such like. Then, she sees an anomaly out in space, so, being the curious sort, she goes off to investigate it. And that’s when everything changes.

You see, the mysterious anomaly is a spaceship called Virility. The crew of the Virility is all about breeding. They are out to inseminate as many species as possible. The goal is to make an ideal species that is a mix of everyone. And not only are they out there inseminating species, they are also inseminating space itself. Lots of fucking going on here.

They haven’t kept any of the women, at least until Lyra. Then again, none of the other women have tried to crash their ship right into the Virility. Talon, the captain of the ship, sees something about her and decides that he is going to keep her. But, of course it ain’t that easy. Lyra is bound and determined to get back to Earth, and she’s going to do everything she can to get there, including sabotaging things. Doing that brings her to the attention of Shank, the disciplinarian of the ship, and she gets punished for her transgressions. Then she meets Luca, who looks pretty human, and they become very friendly. Very, very friendly, if you catch what I’m pitching.

There is some fantastic fucking going on in this story. There’s also a chunk of humor in here. I spent some time just laughing my ass off. There were also times that were really sad. I did have tears going on when I read it.

I like that each guy met a need in Lyra, and she met a need each of the guys had. It is a really good relationship for everyone. I definitely think that she should be the captain of the ship though. It was pretty funny when she kept telling Talon that. And Major Tom? I’m a huge Bowie fan, so I had Space Oddity in my head after meeting that.

This is not one of Loki’s darker reads, but it is definitely worth it.

The void monster thingie is really fascinating. And so is Lyra’s solution.

I don’t know whether I like before Lyra or after Lyra most. There are definitely differences and similarities in there.

OK, that’s all for today! Go check it out and happy reading!

Alta Hensley-The Truth About Cinder

Have you ever wanted a fairy tale that took place in a post-apocalyptic world where most everywhere in the world has dried up and water is more precious than gold? If you have, then Alta has the perfect story for you, The Truth About Cinder. As you might be able to guess from the name, this is the story of Sleeping Beauty. OK, it’s a dark, dystopian, post-apocalyptic, kinky version of Cinderella. And I gotta tell you, I much prefer Alta’s version over the Brothers Grimm’s version. More sex and spanking, for one thing.

So, pretty much all the water has dried up. There are a few places where water can still be found, and in those areas, communes have sprung up where people live. The communes aren’t very pleasant places. They are really just surviving, and you know how people are when they are in that kind of mindset, so just imagine how nasty the people were in some of those communes. Think something like Mad Max or Tank Girl. Outside of the communes, the rest of the world is a desert, with no plants, no animals, no nothing.

Into this desperate, desiccated world trudges Cinder. She left the commune she was born into, and has stayed here and there at various communes on her journey. She has an ultimate goal in her journey, and it has taken her quite a while to get to it. She is going to the Palace of Lazar. She wants to join the harem there. Everyone says that it is just a myth, but she knows deep in her soul that Lazar exists and she’s going to get there. It isn’t an easy journey, by any means, but it is worth it for Cinder. In fact, for Cinder, it’s so worth it that she nearly dies on her journey.

But when she wakes, she discovers that she has made it to Lazar, and a gorgeous man is there in front of her, telling her that she has made it and if she meets the requirements, she can join the harem. Donte is the man, and he tells her that if she doesn’t behave, he’ll be in charge of punishing her. He stands there while she’s examined to see if she’s a virgin then takes her to the baths and watches as she is groomed, and all her body hair is removed. Cinder is all about having him there, as she is drawn to him and he makes her feel safe.

Months go on, and Cinder is happy in the harem and being trained, but of course, nothing stays the same, and when you live in a dangerous world, even if you are living in a palace in the lap of luxury, no place is safe forever.

I really like Cinder. She knew what she wanted and she was willing to go out and get it. I mean, it had to have been scary to go out into the world from her birth commune, and then to leave one after another so that she could get to the palace. And she had to do that without knowing exactly where she’d be able to get more supplies or if what she carried would last her as long as she needed. I’m not sure that I would’ve been able to do it, especially trudging through the desert. I am not a trudging through the desert kind of woman. I am not a going to the desert kind of woman. It’s hot. I don’t like to be hot. We get to see a lot of that fire and strength in Cinder. I mean, yeah, she has her moments, but overall, she is a very strong character. That doesn’t mean she’s not submissive too. The two things aren’t mutually exclusive. You can be both strong and submissive. And Cinder definitely is.

Donte seems to be a really good man. He cares for the entire harem, and wants everyone to be safe. He is stern and disciplined, as well as being the disciplinarian. But it seems like everything he does to discipline the women of the harem is done in a caring way. In fact, there is one point when he’s been brought in to punish Cinder that he asks if she thinks that she deserves it and listens to her explain why she doesn’t. We really don’t get to know much about him, except through Cinder, since everything is from her POV.
