The Alpha lives for the hunt…

Driven by instinct, an Alpha shifter recognizes his fated mate from one scent, one touch. He’ll pursue his woman, regardless of the cost, and anyone else would be smart to get out of his way. He won’t stop until he takes possession of his prize.

Although the hunter doesn’t need convincing, his mate certainly does. The Alpha will have to prove himself as a lover and convince his woman that he plays for keeps.

Evernight Publishing has put out two anthologies with the same theme and that is being taken by an Alpha male. A shifter in most cases, (I did not read the M/M version so I can only speak for the F/M version) But in both books they managed to snag some truly incredible authors.

To say that Evernight has a plethora of talent in their stables is an understatement at best, just the talent in the 12 author anthology I read alone proves it. Some of my favorite authors were in this anthology, Doris O’Connor, Sam Crescent, Lily Harlem, Maia Dylan and Elena Kincaid. Incidentally, their stories also stood out in this amazing anthology.

I also enjoyed the rest, especially Stacey Espino andElyzabeth M. VaLey’s contributions. My absolute favorite though, would be The Hunt by Doris O’Connor. Raphael is a wolf shifter who finds his mate in a doe shifter named Aubrey. He saves her but finds out mating is not always easy, especially when a rival is involved. My runner-up story is Taken Mate by Sam Crescent about a wolf shifter who after abducting his mate, just can’t quite get the courting part right.

All in all, every story in this book is a hit and deserves 5 Stars!

Love My Pain by Sam Crescent

pain

Blurb:

Edward Banner is so out of his depth, and he knows it. Falling for a waitress that is younger than he is was one thing. Falling for a woman who self-harms? That is another thing altogether. He doesn’t understand it. But he can’t bear to see it happen, and there’s no turning back. 

Isabel Benson has not lived a great life. Abandoned by her parents from a young age, she was the one who raised her little sister. When the pressures of life got too much, she found one solution to get herself through, the only thing she could ever control, cutting. It’s hers alone. Her little secret—until Edward catches her. 

He wants her to stop, but she doesn’t know if she can. There is no easy way to help. But he’s not walking away like so many people have in her life. He’s not going to stop loving her, and he’s not going to stop being there. 

Can Isabel find the strength to see that she doesn’t need to hurt herself anymore? Will Edward stay true to his word, and stay by her side? 

Be Warned: spanking

cropped-reviewfbknotty1.jpg

Sam Crescent is one of my faves, but this time she’s decided to tackle a subject a bit more on the serious side, cutting. After reading Love My Pain, I think Sam did a great job with it. I was a little miffed with Edward in the beginning for leaving Isabel alone when she was chained up in the dungeon, since that’s just a huge no-no, otherwise, Edward was a terrific character who handled everything well.

Isabel Benson cuts herself on occasion to feel. She’s had a rough childhood where her parents made her feel awful, that is, when they bothered to be around. They left her to raise her sister Sophie.

Edward is a bit older than Isabel, but he’s determined to help her with her problem. He’s also just a friend. But he’s also attracted to Isabel. When Isabel finally admits what she wants and needs, Edward may just have a change of heart that will heal them both.

I enjoyed this book immensely, and even though it’s part of a series, it is a stand alone.

Excerpt:

Was it possible for Edward to fall in love with her? She already knew her feelings for him. She loved him, knew without a doubt that she did. Her feelings when it came to him had been building from that very first time he walked into the diner.

She had been captivated by him, and now, she wanted to be everything he needed.

It had been nearly two weeks since he had taken her kit from her, and she hadn’t felt the need for it. There was no weekly ritual in her life for the kit. It wasn’t like she set a day every week, and then stuck to it.

The only time she had used it was when she couldn’t stand not to. The longest she had been without hurting herself was three months. Three months she could handle. Two weeks were a piece of cake.

Cleaning the dishes, she felt Edward close beside her. He stood, drying up the dishes that she washed.

The cut on her thigh was all healed up, and she didn’t know how to tell him.

Her body was on fire for him. She wanted him so badly. Her dreams at night were getting hotter.

With no release, she was finding it hard to concentrate on anything else. His hands looked so big, and she wondered what they would be like on her body, touching her. Her imagination was running riot right now.

“My legs are fine,” she said, blurting the words out, and cringing as she finished.

“I’m sorry?”

“My leg. It’s fine. No more damage.” She had still covered it with tape just in case. She didn’t want to risk the scab opening up and bleeding.

Handing him the final plate, she cleaned the sink up and washed her hands.

“Show me,” he said.

Staring at him, and around the kitchen, she licked her dry lips. She wasn’t nervous about showing him her healed leg. No, she was more nervous about him discovering the truth of her arousal. She was wet. Even her panties were wet.

Grow up. You’re twenty-five for God’s sake. Get your shit together.

Unbuttoning her jeans, she lowered the zipper and wriggled the jeans down to her knees. The shirt she wore covered her thighs, so she lifted it up. All she wanted to do was cover up. Most of her old scars were faded, some of them just silvery strips similar to wounds made in surgery. Only hers were not perfect.

She had never gone too deep, or hurt herself to the point that she needed to go to the hospital for stitches. As with all things in her life, she had been careful.

Holding her shirt at the apex of her thighs, she was praying that he didn’t notice her wet panties, or the scent of her arousal.

Isabel truly believed that she could smell herself. Edward knelt down, and she watched him as he removed the Band-Aid from her thigh. The scab was nice and clean. For as long as she could, she kept it exposed so the scab would form quickly. She had even opted for some skirts to help with the process, only long skirts though, down to her ankles, hiding everything.

“Remove your jeans,” he said.

Blurb:

Naomi is fleeing a bad marriage. Her battered and bruised soul needs a place where she can hide away from the rest of the world – and where her abusive ex-husband won’t find her. A native of Miami, she takes an offer to work as a maid on a resort island far away from civilization. She never expected that resort to be an exclusive BDSM club. Nor did she expect to have all sorts of wicked fantasies about her new boss.

Jared immediately recognizes the sweet submissive within his newest employee. What’s surprising to him is the desire he feels toward her. He sets out on a campaign to conquer Naomi’s hesitation and show her pleasure beyond her wildest imaginings. And when he catches her going through his personal belongings, what starts as a discipline session turns into one of the hottest, most erotic nights of his life.

Jared sets out to convince the hesitant, sweet sub to submit to him for more than one night. But when Naomi’s ex-husband descends on the island and kidnaps her in the middle of a devastating hurricane, Jared will be forced to use every weapon in his arsenal to save her.

Publisher’s Note: Her Master and Commander, the first in Anya Summers’ exciting new series, contains explicit sexual themes including anal, as well as strong elements of BDSM.

Her Master and Commander by Anya Summers is the first book in a brand new series that is an offshoot of the Dungeon Fantasy Club series. When I saw Anya had a new book out, I got super excited, as I have all of the DFC books (Except the domme one, not a fan of domme books) When I saw that it was Jared’s (Her Highland Master DFC Book 1) ((Amazon))

book, I did a little chair dance. I’ve always thought that Jared deserved his own story, his own HEA. I’m doubly glad that he’s stepped out of Declan’s shadow, despite the fact that they are best friends, I never thought Jared belonged as the butler. But in Her Master and Commander we start with Jared making the decision to leave Scotland for a private island near Nassau. He can’t play third to Declan and Zoey’s relationship anymore, being the occasional third. He loves Zoey too much and needs to distance himself.

Six months later, and the island is a lifestyler’s paradise. There’s a hotel and bungalows, all outfitted for BDSM play. Even the pool are and outside paths have play spots. (Can I go?) Jared hires a new maid that he finds himself instantly attracted to, Naomi Cates. But her eyes are full of sadness and secrets, secrets he’s determined to find out.

Naomi is on the run from her ex. She figures Pleasure Island will be safe and he won’t find her. But she finds herself attracted to her boss, and that’s a no no. Can she resist him? Jared finds himself an in with her when she messes up. But will he stick around, or is his love for Zoey still interfering? And can he save her in time when the worst happens?

This book was a great start to a new series! I’m positively thrilled at the prospect of new books for the secondary characters, lots of Masters and submissives. I thought Naomi was a great match for Jared, despite what she’d gone through with her ex, she has lot’s of spunk and fire. Jared is positively swoonworthy, though not perfect. He did have some off moments, especially with how he treated Naomi the morning after his phone call with Declan and Declan’s good news. Definitely a book I’d re-read over and over again!

Undeniable by Ravenna Tate

Blurb:

Rosanna Selim can’t recall almost two years of her life, but it hasn’t stopped her from loving her job as a paralegal with one of the top defense firms in Cleveland, Ohio. It also hasn’t affected her relationship with sexy, charming homicide detective, Houston Cassidy. Until he tells her about a twelve-year old case. As images invade both her waking and dreaming states, she’s certain that uncovering the truth means losing Houston.

Houston has been unlucky in love because of dedication to his job, so he’s determined not to screw things up with Rosanna. She’s sexy, beautiful, and the most easy going woman he’s ever met. He adores her. But when she tells him about the images, and as she works with a therapist to recover her memories, Houston has to come to terms with the possibility that she’s the killer in a case he’s been trying to solve for twelve years.

Be Warned: anal sex, spanking

cropped-reviewfbknotty1.jpg

I’ll be the first to admit, I’m a HUGE Ravenna Tate fan, so I was super excited when this book came out because I love this series so far, but I have to say that as much as I loved the other books, this one, by far, blew me away. I mean, I think this may be my favorite book from her ever. I ran through the gamut of emotions from laughing to crying and I was seriously bummed out when it was all over. (Because it was over.)

Houston Cassidy is a police detective who has been a detective for 12 years. He’s gone through 3 marriages because of it, but he wouldn’t give it up. He also has a girlfriend, Rosanna Selim who he is crazy about. His partner Annie, who drives him and all the rest of the precinct crazy, has found a lead on a cold case. His very first case as detective.

He tells Rosanna about the case, and she starts having nightmares along with ages old flashes of dark images. Houston starts to suspect that Rosanna may just be the suspect he’s been looking for. If she is, then she may have lived through something horrible.

I seriously felt for both characters in this book as both Houston and Annie’s investigation progressed and Rosanna not only had to deal with lost memories, but with Houston being a bit of a jerk for a while, and then dealing with her repressed memories when they come to light. Aside from Houston’s period of being said jerk, he really was a great guy. And I liked Annie, maybe she’ll have a book. All in all, if I could give this more than 5 Stars, I certainly would. Just an awesome read!!!

Excerpt:

“I love it when you do that.”

“Are you sure?” He raised his brows. “I can wait a long time.”

“Oh yeah?” She shoved her hand between them and caressed his erect penis. “Doesn’t feel that way to me.”

The laugh she loved so much filled the space around them. “Appearances are deceiving.” Shivers ran up and down her spine as he kneaded her breasts. Even with her clothes still on, the effect was intoxicating. She massaged his shaft, aching for that dick to be inside her.

“You’re going to wait for it, babe.”

“Even with me doing this?”

One finger traced between her breasts, over her abdomen, and landed on her clit, where he rubbed hard. The movement forced her hand off his cock. “Now you can’t reach me.”

“Tease.”

“I never tease.” He massaged her swollen bud through the jeans, but she definitely felt it.

“So what do you call this?”

“Payback.”

“For what?”

“For being too damn sexy for your own good.”

“Weak, Houston. Very weak.”

“Oh yeah? Who’s the one squirming and begging right now?”

When he clamped his mouth on her groin through the denim, Rosanna cried out in pleasure. He was right. He’d nailed her. How the man had so much self-control was a mystery to her, but she loved it. She loved the teasing and she loved the way he made her so crazy with desire she wasn’t above begging him to fuck her.

“I’ll bet your hot pussy is soaking wet right now.”

“Why don’t you take off my jeans and find out?”

“Oh, I’ll take them off, but I’m not fucking you just yet. There’s something I keep promising you but haven’t delivered.”

“And what might that be?”

A wicked, sly grin had her wondering if she should have asked. Houston yanked off her jeans, taking her panties with them. He removed her socks and shoes, but instead of returning to what he’d been doing with that magic mouth a second ago, he sat on the edge of the bed and pulled her over one knee.

“Houston…” She was so surprised, she had no idea what to say.

“I’ve been threatening to spank you for weeks.” She gasped as he swatted each cheek, hard. He pinned her thighs with his right leg and held her across the lower back with his left hand. She couldn’t move, and the effect was so deliciously dominant that she nearly came.

“Tell me you’ve been a bad girl.” One more stinging smack on each cheek forced another gasp from her. “I want to hear you say it.”

“I’ve been a bad girl.” Her voice came out all breathy and low, but honestly, how could she help that? This was so over the top intoxicating that her clit began to throb.

“Yes, you have.”

“Oh my God!” He delivered five more blows to each cheek, alternating, and now they burned like fucking crazy. Each swat built on the next one, until she couldn’t distinguish the pleasure from the pain. The combined into one sweet, torturous sensation that sent shivers down her spine, and tiny contractions to her soaking wet pussy.

“Had enough yet, bad girl?”

“I don’t even know how to answer that.”

Houston rubbed the wounds he’d made, which forced loud moans from her as the intensity of the burn increased. “Not quite yet. You can take a bit more.”

Her Marine Rancher by Dinah McLeod

Blurb:

After yet another run-in with the law, nineteen-year-old Cassie Ellis has finally pushed things too far. Facing the prospect of jail time, she agrees to an alternate arrangement in which she will serve her sentence on a local ranch instead, but she soon learns that rancher Robert Johnston will not tolerate the kind of delinquent behavior she’s been getting away with for far too long.

The handsome Marine Corps veteran takes Cassie under his wing, and his kindness and warm sense of humor make it impossible for her not to like him, but when she sneaks out at night and violates the terms of her probation he does not hesitate to bare her bottom and spank her soundly.

The stern punishment brings out a side of Cassie that she didn’t know existed, and she quickly finds herself longing for Robert to hold her in his strong arms and make her his own. When he claims her at last, his masterful lovemaking leaves her utterly satisfied, and a passionate romance quickly blossoms between them. But will there always be a place for Cassie on the ranch, even once her sentence is over?

cropped-reviewfbknotty1.jpg

Her Marine Rancher by Dinah McLeod is a first read by this author for me. I’ll be honest, I came pretty close to putting the book down in the beginning, but that was entirely due to Cassie. Her behavior was just way too over the top, even for me. I got the fact she needed a strong male authority, but it was just bordering on insanity.

Once she finally got to our marine rancher Robbie’s house, she does seem to settle down some and act her age. She manages to work with the dominant, no-nonsense, older man well. Robbie treats her kindly, respectfully, but with a firm hand. But one night she totally gets out of control and goes back to doing her risky, and just plain wrong activities. Let’s just say her hind quarters pay for it. Robbie is quite the spanker.

Before we know it, they are an item. But is it just to scratch an itch? Will Robbie let her go? You’ll have to grab a copy. And I suggest you do! This was a really great read, and Ms McLeod is a wonderful and entertaining writer.

Excerpt:

Wait, what are you doing?” Cassie asked as Robbie took hold of her wrist and pulled her over to a kitchen chair.

“I’m going to teach you a very, very good lesson about being smarter and more responsible in the future,” he replied calmly as he sat down.

“Robbie…” She twisted her wrist this way and that, but he kept a firm grip on it. “You’re scaring me.”

“There’s nothing to be scared of. You’re going to be a little sore—well, make that a lot sore, but it won’t kill you.”

Sore? What was he talking about? To her shock Cassie found herself being pulled face-down over his lap. “Robbie! Robbie, stop!”

“Don’t say ‘stop’ before I’ve even started.” With that, a sound very much like a gunshot rang out through the room, followed quickly by her yelp of protest.

“Ouch! What are you doing?”

“I told you,” he said peppering the seat of her jeans with crisp, hard spanks. “I’m teaching you a lesson.”

“But I d-don’t l-like it!” she squeaked.

“Naughty girls rarely do,” he replied as he continued to soundly spank her. “But even if they don’t like getting spanked, it does tend to make an impression, and that’s exactly what I intend to do.”

He was making an impression all right. An impression of his hand on her ass! Cassie began to squirm, but as his hand continued to warm up the back of her blue jeans she became more desperate and twisted and turned.

“Be still,” he warned.

“I can’t! It hurts!”

“That’s the whole point. Maybe your butt will hurt enough to make you think twice before you hurt other people.”

“I won’t! I won’t hurt anyone ever again—ever!” she squealed.

“Hmm, I’m not convinced.”

Before she could ask him what would convince him—she was willing to say anything to make it stop!—he shocked her by pulling down her jeans. “Robbie! What are you doing?”

“I thought that would be obvious. You deserve a long, hard spanking, Cassandra, and that’s exactly what you’re going to get.”
