REVIEWS! MEMBERS ONLY SERIES by JENNIFER KACEY
Posted by The Literary Melting Pot in Reviews on August 18, 2014
****THE FOLLOWING IS FOR MATURE READERS ONLY****
She knows it’s wrong. Cyn shouldn’t have feelings for fraternal twins Jared and Chris, her best friends. She shouldn’t want them to tie her up or strap her down, to take her one at a time—or together. The only way to control her taboo desires is to write them down and lock them away in her diary. Guys like Jared and Chris could never be interested in someone like her, or in the kind of sex she craves.
But Jared and Chris have read her diary, and sweet little Cyn is in for the shock of her life. The brothers not only own a members-only BDSM club, they want her. Need her. And now, with their unlimited funds and an entire establishment devoted to fulfilling her darkest pleasures, they’re going to claim Cyn for their own.
This is an excellent start to the series! The story line is well developed for a novella, the emotional twists make the characters interesting, and the erotic scenes made me quiver! Well done!
A three-lettered word that means different things to many people. Pictures and words that might stand as a reminder of love, loss, rebellion, or camaraderie. For Haleigh Grace, it meant freedom.
Walking through the doors of the tattoo parlor, Inkfluence, marked the start of taking her life back. Making it what she wanted it to be. No one was going to tell her she couldn’t. Not ever again.
Little did she know that behind those doors stood Kyle Muse. He was her best friend, who had walked away years ago without a backwards glance. The one man she fantasized would someday be her knight in shining armor. The one she saved herself for.
But, he has a knight of his own. Tall, dark, and dangerously sexy, Scott Preston. The owner of the very shop Haleigh has an appointment with at midnight.
Feelings long buried rise to the surface and the three find themselves bound by more than just ink…
Not unlike the first novella in this series, the characters have a history together and a foundation in which they can build from. The emotional struggles are not endured alone and the strength each character possesses elevates the quality of the story line. Wonderful erotica!
Skye has spent her life being the perfect daughter for her prominent, wealthy parents. She says all the right things, wears all the right clothes…and lies through her teeth about the kind of sex she needs. The bland “gentlemen” she dates don’t know a thing about what gets her going—and when they find out, they run screaming. In her deepest, naughtiest dreams, she finds a man…or two…who knows just how to tie her up and tease her until she’s begging for more. But those guys don’t really exist, do they?
Jackson wants one thing for Christmas, and her name is Skye. He’s watched her from afar for ages, biding his time, waiting for his chance to give her the kind of pleasure she craves. And this Christmas he’s going to get his way. He’s enlisted his buddy Nick and the two of them are going to give Skye a holiday treat she’ll never forget.
An unfortunate ending turns out to be one of the best Christmas gifts Skye could receive! With emphasis on the fact that variety can spice up any season, and expanding on the idea that one of the perks of being a “grown up” is being able to act out your fantasies, the author delivers another great read!
Victoria’s been called frigid by every boyfriend she’s ever had. Having never gotten off during sex with even one of them probably has something to do with it. But none of them knew how broken she really is. She not only hasn’t gotten off having sex, she’s never orgasmed…EVER.
Then she sees an interdepartmental memo for a university study that claims it can help with her little problem. Once she signs her name on the dotted line, Dr. Hotlidge, finds all the right buttons to push.
He’s been looking for the perfect subject for his grant study, but something’s been missing from each of the women he’s questioned so far. Everything changes when Jane Smith #129 steps into his exam room.
It’s supposed to be anonymous, clinical research and nothing more. But when he finds her inner submissive hiding just below the surface, they both find more than they bargained for.
Stepping out of “The Library” for this novella, the author has written a story that can be a stand-alone, as well as linked with the rest of the series. I love Dr. Hottie and his ability to build Victoria’s confidence, while giving her the firm hand she needs. Very sexy indeed!
It’s been years since Angel and Davis said “I do” but husband and wife are no longer their most important labels.
He demands nothing short of her complete submission and she finds her place in the world. On her knees—at his feet. Now as members of The Library, a private BDSM club catering to the dark and decadent, they get to explore fantasies they never expected to have.
Marriage. It was supposed to be everything. But for Angel and Davis, it is only the beginning.
In this installment, we follow a married couple with an open relationship. For me, this was much naughtier than the rest! The vocal expressions in the erotic scenes were stronger and more effective. I thoroughly enjoyed this one!
LAST THOUGHTS ON THIS SERIES:
I simply adore this author and her writing style! The endearing moments in her novellas give each story more depth and characterization. There’s a naughty side to counteract the sweet, which allows the series to develop wonderfully as a whole. I loved this set and will read more from her!
NEWEST STAND-ALONE NOVEL OUT NOW!
Kerrington needed her best friend Danielle in her life. Secretly, she wasn’t just a need. She was an ache, buried so deep Kerrington couldn’t breathe without wanting her. But she’d promised her grandmother she’d make her proud and find a man to marry, to have children with, to love, to cherish…
Nothing else mattered more than following the straight and narrow path set before her. Until one night, when a simple kiss changed everything and put Danielle and Kerrington’s strained friendship into question.
Searching for answers, Kerrington finds the permission she thought lost forever—unearthed by hypnotherapist, Dr. Mackenzie Raith. Now Kerrington must convince Danielle to give her one last chance, if it’s not too late.
I’m an unbiased reader, but this was a heart-warming story that doesn’t focus entirely on sexual preference. The struggle between being who you should be and who you really are is a subject that this author depicts expertly. I was captivated throughout. Beautiful job!

REVIEW!! DARK SECRETS(DARK #2) by MADELINE PRYCE
Posted by The Literary Melting Pot in Reviews on July 21, 2014
Dark Secrets (Dark #2)
Publisher: Ellora’s Cave
Genre: Erotic Paranormal Romance
Theme: Vampire/Demon (a few shape shifters thrown in there…)
Length: 85,000 words
The worst moment of Micah’s life was when Ella nearly died in his arms. Her miraculous recovery should have been the start of their future. Unfortunately, a new demonic heritage, the Shadow Agency’s corruption and Julian, the vampire who turned Ella, are testing their relationship. Despite hotter-than-ever sex and a variety of new places and positions to explore, Micah begins to wonder if a relationship based on lust can survive for more than a few scorching-hot months.
Ella has forgiven, but not forgotten, the fact that Micah once plunged a dagger through her heart. Everything with Micah is passion, excitement and an uncontrollable desire to explore his body in a variety of very satisfying ways. But as buried secrets, ongoing lies and murderous deceptions pile up, Ella is reminded that she and Micah’s relationship was based on a curse. In order to forge a future together, Ella and Micah will have to face down their personal demons—and prove that love and trust are more than just words.
***EXPLICIT CONTENT INTENDED FOR MATURE READERS ONLY!!***
**THIS NOVEL IS A PART OF AN EXTRAORDINARY SERIES. WHILE IT COULD BE READ ALONE, I ADVISE READING THE PREVIOUS NOVELS***
Powerfully erotic! I have an impression of Ella and Micah branded in my dreams!
Madeline Pryce takes this genre to a different level with an astute scenario that mesmerizes! I couldn’t tell where she would lead our fabulous paranormal characters next, and I couldn’t read it fast enough. A definite plus is that there’s nail biting intimacy to go along with the nail biting storyline! The banter between Ella and Micah is comical at times, and very alluring. It was an exciting change to have the narrative bounce back and forth between them, which was done so flawlessly. They have that “it” factor, which immediately speaks volumes for the author’s writing style. Each supporting character plays a pivotal role that affects the outcome, as they’re not wantonly thrown in to take up space. I’m completely hooked on this series!
Simply put: If you want a clever story with a lot of spice READ THIS SERIES!
Highly recommend to mature readers! I loved it!

ABOUT THIS LITERARY CHEF
