button synopsis

A steamy collection of scandalous novellas exploring women’s secret, naughty desires and the amazing men who bring those fantasies to life. The short stories Captive Fantasy and For Her Eyes Only can only be found in this anthology.

Captive Fantasy

Mary has always had a fantasy about a dangerous escaped prisoner kidnapping her and forcing her to sate his brutal, pent up desires. When she receives an invitation from the IWSS to live that fantasy out in one of their research facilities she jumps at the chance. Now she just has to convince her gentle giant of a husband to take control and make her his willing love slave.

Sensation Play

Retired German cage fighter, Jonas Becker, has a chance meeting with his dream woman at a charity ball. Unfortunately she leaves before he can get her contact information. When he sees her again at a coffee shop he overhears her talk about the perfect, kinky, opportunity for Jonas to win her over.

Erica signs up with the Collette’s List dating service, a dating site that specializes in pairing up sexually adventurous couples. Her request is simple. She wants a dangerous, rough, intimidating man to fake break into her hotel room and force her to submit to his wicked demands while giving her multiple orgasms. Using every ounce of his skill as an experienced Dom, Jonas hopes to win Erica over before the night ends. He can only hope that the pleasure he can bring her would make the beautiful woman look past his scarred and battered exterior to the man within who can give her sensations like no other.

Peppermint Passion

Shyla has dreamt about, lusted after, and fallen in love with her to hot as hell bosses over the past year that she’s for them. With only a few months left before she graduates and earns her teaching degree, Shyla decides to make her move at the company Christmas Party.

Trent and Jack have been fighting a losing battle to keep their hands off of their beautiful and innocent waitress, Shyla, until she graduates. When she surprises them by arriving at their Christmas party dressed like a wet fetish dream, and they learn she plans on being part of the submissive auction, the men quickly decide that the time to show Shyla who she belongs to, and who truly loves, her has arrived.

For Her Eyes Only

Amanda accepts an invitation from the prestigious Institute for Women’s Sexual Satisfaction. Volunteering for their study means she must divulge her deepest, naughtiest fantasies and then act on them. But one wicked fantasy involves watching her boyfriend do something so intimate, so forbidden that she’s afraid he’ll refuse and may even break off their relationship.

Jared can’t believe his gorgeous girlfriend wants to see another woman don a strap-on and take his anal virginity. But he wants to make her wildest fantasies come true — and maybe finally indulge some secret fantasies of his own.

Bound for Her Pleasure

Football star Tycen Preston has everything he could ever want, everything except the healing release of subspace that he desperately craves. After four years of searching for the right Domme, he finally has the opportunity to indulge in all the dark, forbidden desires that would ruin his carefully crafted image if they anyone every found out.

Lara Perez is tired of the weak submissive men that offer her no challenge. She yearns for a strong Alpha male to tame and call her own. A blind date seems to be the perfect arrangement for fulfilling both of their decadent cravings. Unfortunately a scheming paparazzi photographer is hot on their trail, and will do anything he can to get a scandalous picture of Tycen that would destroy his career.

button review OUAA

Captive Fantasy

A very sexy, hot short story that takes the trust in a relationship to a whole new level. I loved the couple and the way in which they entered this new level of their marriage.

Sensation Play

I really loved this story, because beyond the extremely hot fantasy play, is the brother determined to stop the date. Yeah forget that shit, no one at the hotel is telling you or your brothers anything.

A hot, sexy, need a cold shower read.

Peppermint Passion

This short was a fun one to read. Shyla was not only entered into the auction but also totally new to the lifestyle. I did my share of giggling as I read this one. I was also holding my breath during the auction.

A step up to hotter than hot, fanning self followed by a really cold shower before moving on to the next one in this book.

For Her Eyes Only

I wasn’t sure about this one at first. I’ve read MFM but this version of MFF is a totally different level of kink. I was pleasantly surprised and enjoyed the dynamic and the heat of this threesome.

Bound for Her Pleasure

Talk about hot, this one was sizzling before a real fire started. Both parties were looking to fill a desire that had been missing since losing their partners. Not sweet, but exactly what they both need. Almost spoiled by paparazzi.

Ann Mayburn has once again put the kinkiest stuff out there in the true ways of the BDSM lifestyle. With some sexual research as well. I loved each of these stories and I’d like to meet up with these partners again. Maybe they could all end up friends in the club mentioned in Peppermint Passion.

5 Sweaty Contented Purrs for this excellent collection of Novellas.

Never a big fan of purple prose, throbbing spears of fleshy pleasure and wet honey pots make her giggle, she sought out books that gave the sex scenes in the story just as much detail and plot as everything else-without using cringe worthy euphemisms. This led her to the wonderful world of Erotic Romance, and she’s never looked back.

A Broken Wolf. A Fractured Bond. A Fate Denied.

 

Brynn Brentwood has spent the whole of her life protecting the Talon Pack through terrors only she will ever know. She’s never asked for more in life other than to live to take her next breath and to ensure her family is safe. Regardless of her selfless wishes and the atrocities the former Alpha committed, she has always known that fate would provide for her as it had countless others. Fate is what has carried her through with one exception–upon meeting the one wolf who could be hers, he doesn’t feel their bond.

 

Finn Jamenson has been broken more than once, left beaten and half dead–and that was before he was an adult and Heir of the Redwood Pack. When called upon to work with their allies, the Talons, he finds himself intrigued with a woman who his wolf doesn’t claim as his own. Though he knows there could be something there, he refuses to tempt himself with a wolf who could never be his when his own mate could waiting for him.

The world changed in a blink of time and now the two wolves must fight as one–ignoring the burning temptation between them–when their people are threatened.

With one wrong move, their homes could be destroyed and its up to Finn and Brynn to save them all…if only they could save themselves.

SummerBlog My Review

Thanks to the ‘Unveiling’ humans are relentlessly watching the Talon pack, and have an general idea of the Redwood location. Alpha’s Kane and Gideon have selected members of their packs to spend time outside the dens in an attempt to show they are mostly harmless.

Brynn, the Talon Alpha Gideon’s sister is paired with Finn, the Redwood Alpha Kane’s brother and heir.

Brynn has known for sure that Finn is her mate since Gideon and Brie’s mating ceremony. When she approached Finn at that time she was surprised and confused that he didn’t feel the mating pull. Now with them working close together acting as a ‘normal’ couple, having coffee and shopping the pull is tearing Brynn apart. She doesn’t understand why the fates would be so cruel.

Finn is attracted to Brynn but his wolf doesn’t seem to be. Finn’s wolf has never quite acted like others have described even the pull for the change is different for him. and in some ways is harder to control. For some reason he can’t define Brynn seems to hate him, and gets irritated at just about everything he says and does. Finn wants to be closer, much closer, but since his wolf doesn’t feel the pull of mate he doesn’t think it would be fair to her.

With each foray out of the den, the atmosphere gets more dangerous. Explosions are happening near the Talon den and there are confrontations with the humans as more of them take sides for or against the wolves.

A fast paced, action packed story, with emotional entanglements and sizzling sex to keep us on our toes. I love Carrie Ann’s wolves and look forward to the next installment of the Talon Pack.

Aidan

Surf. Fuck. Get high.

Sounds like the perfect day to Aidan Callahan. As second-born son to Chicago’s most influential business owner, Aidan’s life has always been about responsibility. Tradition. Toeing the goddamn line. Just do as you’re told, Aidan. Don’t make waves.

Well, screw that. Riding waves is way more fun than making them.

Hawaii is paradise on earth. Smoking hot women. Tiny bikinis. As far as Aidan’s concerned, wild horses couldn’t drag him kicking and screaming back to the windy city. Or at least that’s what he thought.

When his brother crashes his Mercedes, killing himself on impact, Aidan finds himself next in line to the Callahan fortune and all the ties that come with it.

And this time there’s no getting out of it.

Essie

A warm bed. A steady job. A brother who loves her.

For Essie Floyd, life’s been one hard kick in the teeth after another. With her parents both dead, her brother is her only living relative. That is until Vaughn’s truck is written off, his life snatched away by the careless actions of a rich playboy in a flashy sports car.

Now, the only thing that will bring Essie peace is revenge. She must take what was taken from her. Only when the name Callahan has been wiped from the face of the earth forever will she be able to start living again.

Of course, the new head of the Callahan Corporation isn’t what she expected. Aidan’s sexy and sad, and just as damaged as she is. Will she be able to distance herself enough to accomplish her goal?

After all, ruining a man’s really hard when you find yourself falling for him…

SummerBlog My Review

Essie and Aiden have both lost their families. Essie, her brother and Aiden his brother and parents in the same accident. Aiden’s brother was at fault but the dynamics of this loss is the core of this story.

Essie was left with nothing and was dependent on her brother’s best friend to get by until she got on her feet. Aiden inherited a multi-billion dollar corporation that he really didn’t want to be part of.

They both have different ways of handling their grief. While Essie plots revenge against all things Callahan, Aiden makes the business even more successful, in spite of his initial thought of selling everything and going back to what he loves.

When these two come together it is a battle of dominants. Sparks flying and hotter than hot.

I really don’t like being kept hanging for the rest of a story though. Now I have to wait impatiently for Book 2.

My Review of Tattered Loyalties by Carrie Ann Ryan

Tattered Loyalties
by Carrie Ann Ryan
Fated Desires Publishing (February 17, 2015)

 

SummerBlog Blurb

 

When the great war between the Redwoods and the Centrals occurred three decades ago, the Talon Pack risked their lives for the side of good. After tragedy struck, Gideon Brentwood became the Alpha of the Talons. But the Pack’s stability is threatened, and he’s forced to take mate—only the one fate puts in his path is the woman he shouldn’t want.

 

Though the daughter of the Redwood Pack’s Beta, Brie Jamenson has known peace for most of her life. When she finds the man who could be her mate, she’s shocked to discover Gideon is the Alpha wolf of the Talon Pack. As a submissive, her strength lies in her heart, not her claws. But if her new Pack disagrees or disapproves of fate’s choice, the consequences could be fatal.

 

As the worlds Brie and Gideon have always known begin to shift, they must face their challenges together in order to help their Pack and seal their bond. But when the Pack is threatened from the inside, Gideon doesn’t know who he can trust and Brie’s life could be forfeit in the crossfire. It will take the strength of an Alpha and the courage of his mate to realize where true loyalties lie.

SummerBlog My Review

Lone wolves are challenging the Talon Pack Alpha Gideon, with increasing frequency and none of them have had the dominance to win. On top of this, it is becoming apparent that wolves will not be a hidden entity much longer. In an effort to control how the wolves are made public, the Redwood and Talon packs have a meeting to discuss how this should be done. This is where the fun begins.

Brie has known Gideon is her mate since she was seventeen. The problem, she is a submissive wolf, and as such really isn’t suited to be an Alpha’s mate. She has managed to avoid meeting him since that day so long ago, now her hiding is over. Kane, Alpha of the Redwood pack has ordered her to be at the meeting with the Talon pack.

When Gideon meets Brie, he knows right away she’s his mate, and a submissive. Since she doesn’t acknowledge anything he decides fate made a mistake and is going to ignore this little fact. Unfortunately for him the elders of his pack have other ideas. In an effort to exert their power the elders decide to invoke the Mating Clause on the Alpha “for the good of the pack”. Faced with a forced mating Gideon tells the elders he has found his potential mate but has not had the opportunity to pursue her. When Brie discovers this she travels to meet with Gideon. Better to have the mate the Goddess has given them than to have one forced by the elders and witches.

The mating instinct is strong with these two and they can’t seem to keep their hands off each other. With this starting backwards and they really don’t know each other, Gideon is way too overprotective of her.  This is making it difficult for Brie to find her place in the pack.

Top that off with the elder Shannon hating her and the surprise appearance of a wolf who should be dead and the sparks really start flying. The pack has an internal problem that could mean the end of the current relative peace if Gideon and Brie don’t get it together.

I loved this book, the intricate weaving of the story as Gideon and Brie find their paths in spite of everything that is against them.

My Review of Love Beyond Expectations by Rebecca Royce – The Outsiders Book 5


Love beyond expectations Cover

The Fifth Book in the Outsiders Series

SummerBlog Blurb

Christophe Roux has always known he was different. Born to a wealthy French family, he has never told anyone that he is frequently thrown through time and space to visit with ghosts and other terrifying creatures. But now he knows he is an Outsider and moreover that he has a soul mate somewhere out in the world waiting for him. When his brother is taken, he heads to Maine to search for help, never expecting that his love is the woman he has lusted after for years.

Ruby Brannon lived her childhood on the run and her adulthood trying to make sense of the strange things that happen to her. Now, she’s with the Outsiders but she is still unsure if she’ll be able to step up when it’s her turn to fight the evil seeking to destroy them all.

Together, Ruby and Christophe will change the fates of the Outsiders. Or die trying.

SummerBlog My Review

 

As the tale continues we get to see more and more of the Outsiders and their past. While mainly about Christophe and Ruby, we also meet the rest of the outsiders. They haven’t all met up but for a moment they are all in Maine. We have caught glimpses of Zane previously so now we get to know him better.

Sebastian is on a roll and attacks not only Christophe and his twin Colin but also the house in Maine, playing mind games with Ruby who has joined the group.

Ruby discovers the whereabouts of the cypher key by half-watching TV while trying to decipher the books. It is a cane in the possession of a Preacher the same preacher her grandparents kept her away from for years.

Drew and Marina accompany her to get the cane, but they are waylaid by the appearance and then disappearance of Christophe. Then an explosion and fire leaves Marina unconscious and Drew missing. Christophe reappears with the knowledge that his brother has been captured by Sebastian.

Christophe finds that when he touches Ruby his powers settle as well as hers. Wishing for the key she ends up with a key that burns her hand and Christophe transported them to a place they wish to be aka her bedroom.

There are three things that need to be done, rescue Colin, get the cane and find out what the key is for.

We meet up with Zane as he goes to a bar to find the courage to enter a church he believes the Outsiders are in. There he meets Gia the bartender and when she tries her power on him it doesn’t work and vise versa. They discover they are cousins and not soul mates and Zane moves in with an offer to keep her safe.

The person we hadn’t met is Raquel, she is the one who set the fire that caused the explosion. Alexa has also traveled to Maine and meets Raquel and only knows that she wants to get to the island home of the Outsiders as much as she does.

This is fast paced with something happening on every page. I love how the newly mated can’t keep their hands to themselves and the males get all grumpy. Lots of surprises here and I enjoyed every single one.

As a teenager, I would hide in my room to read my favorite romance novels when I was supposed to be doing my homework. I hope, these days, that my parents think it was worth it.

I am the mother of three adorable boys and I am fortunate to be married to my best friend. I live in Austin Texas where I am determined to eat all the barbecue in town.

I am in love with science fiction, fantasy, and the paranormal and try to use all of these elements in my writing. I’ve been told I’m a little bloodthirsty so I hope that when you read my work you’ll enjoy the action packed ride that always ends in romance. I love to write series because I love to see characters develop over time and it always makes me happy to see my favorite characters make guest appearances in other books.

In my world anything is possible, anything can happen, and you should suspect that it will.

I’d love to hear from you!

My Review of Playing With Fire by Cassandra Bella

Playing With Fire
by Cassandra Bella
New Concepts Publishing (October 13, 2013)

 

SummerBlog Blurb

At the tender age of eighteen, Jessie Bacelli learned the truth of evil. After the murder of her father, Jessie steps in to take care of her younger sister, Annie, while following in her father’s footsteps and becoming an agent for the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Dedicating her career to bringing down Luther Rabago, the man responsible for her father’s death, she doesn’t have time for distractions in her life. Especially when they are as handsomely annoying as fellow agent, Alec Chambers.

But then Jessie is faced with the worst horror of her life. Luther Rabago has taken her sister, Annie, and initiates a dark game of cat and mouse that stretches from the streets of Downtown Denver to the heart of the French Quarter in New Orleans. Partnered with Alec, Jessie finds herself battling not only her fear for her little sister, but her attraction to a man that is everything she swore long ago she would never allow in her life. And as the flames ignite around them, Jessie realizes she very well might lose more than she ever imagined

SummerBlog My Review

This book was a gift in exchange for a fair and honest review.

This story begins with the murder of Jessie and Anna’s father and the aftermath.

It then moves forward to the present where Jessie is an FBI Agent working under her late father’s partner, Brett. Her entire focus is on bring down anything and anyone connected with Luther Rabago who executed her father. She is succeeding at that too well in fact.

Luther on the other hand is tired of things going awry and has decided it’s time to do away with the Bacelli sisters. In order to get them both he kidnaps her sister Anna, knowing that Jessie will stop at nothing to get her back.

In the middle of all of this is Jessie’s partner Alec. He doesn’t understand why she dislikes him but still seems attracted to him. Jessie makes this clear in a conversation while looking for a possible informant. This is one of my favorite scenes.

“I will never be foolish enough to fall for a game-playing, smooth-talking playboy like you.”

Flattening both hands against the table, she pushed up from her chair. Grabbing her empty coffee cup, she crushed it into a tiny scrap of Styrofoam and tossed it in the trash can.

“And for the record,” she returned to the table but didn’t sit back down. “This is the very last conversation I wanted to have with you.”

“As much as I despise who you are,” she folded her arms over her breasts. “I can’t fight whatever it is sparking this tension between us,  for every step I want to take away from you, something I can’t yet figure out yanks me two steps closer.”

A tense, suspenseful read. Keep tissues on hand and try not to bite your nails.
