Review: In His Keeping by Maya Banks (rom-susp)

IN HIS KEEPING

  
Blurb:

Maya continues her suspenseful and steamy Slow Burn series with this second book—a twisting tale featuring a strong yet vulnerable heroine in danger and the sexy alpha hero who must save her.

Abandoned as a baby to a young wealthy couple and raised in a world of privilege, Arial has no hint of her past or who she belonged to. Her only link lies in the one thing that sets her apart from everyone else—telekinetic powers. Protected by her adoptive parents and hidden from the public to keep her gift secret, Ari is raised in the lap of luxury, and isolation. That is, until someone begins threatening her life.

Beau Devereaux is no stranger to the strange. As the head of Deveraux Security, he’s more than familiar with the realities of physic powers. So when a family friend approaches him about protecting his daughter, he’s more than ready to jump on board. What Beau isn’t prepared for is the extent of his attraction to his beautiful and powerful client. What began as a simple assignment, just another job, quickly turns personal as Beau discovers he’ll do anything at all to protect Ari. Even if it costs him his life.

  Review:

This is 423 pages of a slow burn. Really I found myself skipping ahead several times. I normally love Maya Banks books but sometimes she gives you a book where is it feels like it’s dragging along at a snails pace. I really wanted her to get to the point. It’s like trying to listen to my father in law tell a story. He has to give you the background of everybody involved then the story, then the actual event is two minutes. But she we’ve it’s together to wear it all made sense in the end. 

The characters had good sex scenes. And the build up to maintain relationship is strong. I believe it will last a long time. 

Also she provided information for the whole story arc between the brothers and the family. So we get more information from what happened with their father. The plot thickens. 

So, overall I liked the book, didn’t love it. I may not read it again. But it was ok. Not the deviant naughtiness I am used to but it was a good reprieve.

#freebook Dissident by Cecilia London

image

She once was important. Now she’s considered dangerous.

In a new America where almost no one can be trusted, Caroline lies unconscious in a government hospital as others decide her fate. She is a political dissident, wanted for questioning by a brutal regime that has come to power in a shockingly easy way. As she recovers from her injuries, all she has are her memories. And once she wakes up, they may not matter anymore.

Dissident is part contemporary romance and part political thriller, with elements of romantic suspense and speculative fiction. Told mostly in flashback, it details the budding romantic relationship between our heroine Caroline and Jack, the silver fox playboy who tries to win her heart.

Part One of a Six Part Series. Each part is a full length novel between 60,000-120,000 words and ends in a cliffhanger. For readers 18+. This saga contains adult situations, including non-gratuitous violence, explicit (consensual) sex, psychological and physical trauma, and an oftentimes dark and gritty plot (particularly in part two).

Caroline’s journey continues in Conscience, now available for preorder (releases August 17, 2015).

“With equal parts political thriller and captivating romance, Cecilia London has crafted a novel that’s hard to put down and kept me wanting more! I’m looking forward to the next book in the series!” – Melissa Brown, Author of Wife Number Seven

“There’s so much delicious word porn in this book. YES, WORD PORN….It’s unapologetically an intellectual smut novel, which made me all warm in all the right places. There’s suspense, danger, anger, love, and (most importantly) delicious sex. GIVE ME MORE.” – Obsessed With Myshelf

“Behind all the information about elections and scandals is a beautiful love story that touched my heart. I fell in love with Caroline and think that Jack is one sexy man!” – Carol, StarAngels’ Reviews

“Cecilia London has one powerful and chaotic series breaking out of the gates at full speed! Is it a political suspense novel? Romantic suspense? Dystopian political romantic suspense? All I know is this is one riveting tale that packs a wallop….At no point could I see where this would end up and I must say, the ride to the finish and balancing on the edge of this cliff hanger is well worth the ticket to ride!” – Dianne, TomeTender

While seeking revenge, Jewels finds a passion that’ll have her hanging by a dream. The pressure is too much and loose threads holding the past begin to unravel. Her brain urges her to run while her heart wishes to stay.

Spark wants nothing but distance with Jewels, but when things start to heat up on the Rhinestone Ranch, he samples Jewels’ treasure and finds himself on the wrong end of the rope again—but it’s his soul that’s bound to a woman who will never trust.

Review:
SPOILERS AHEAD CAPTAIN!!!!

I got this book for free on Kindle unlimited. I really didn’t expect much since I had the misfortune of reading “Taken by the T-Rex”.  In some ways or didn’t disappoint what little expectations I did have. It was short, and there was sex between a human and a beastly looking  dinosaur.

However,  if the author hasn’t mentioned the claws or snout, I wouldn’t have thought this was a animal at all. You could possible substitute freakish alien for the idea of a dinosaur and the book would still work.

I also didn’t expect the threesome or the last lines in the book about adding him to the group of fuck buddies or the sitter getting a girlfriend out of it.

Sex: 4 (even though it was out of my comfort box was still hot)

Plot: 1 (haha that’s funny,  a plot in dino erotica)

My overall enjoyment: 3 (because I was freaked out how well I enjoyed this,  and I didn’t really picture a dinosaur just an alien being with dino like features)

I’m going to hell,  I know.

tag17My name is Cale Kinley and I’m a fucking Virgin

Well, with the exception of my tongue. The countless things I can do with my tongue are bound to leave you breathless and begging for more, but more… is something that I can’t give. It’s a choice. My choice.

There’s a reason for that. A very good reason, and that reason is her.

Riley.

She’s the only woman that I want to bury myself deep in. The one woman I have wanted since I was old enough to fuck.

I never got my chance though, because she left. She had no choice and it stung like hell. But I couldn’t let her leave without telling her how I felt. I wanted her to be my first and I didn’t give a shit how long I’d have to wait.

It’s been six years and now she’s back and sexier than all hell. Just the sight of her stops my damn heart from beating. I want her and for more than just having her as my first.

I’m determined to have her in every way possible. She thinks this is still a game; that I’ve already given myself to countless women. What she doesn’t know is that I have a lot of willpower.

When I want something as badly as I want her, I don’t let shit stand in my way. I’m going to prove that to her. There’s just one little problem I need to take care of…

Moon shine on me, Ghost. When you look at me like this, how can I even think of anything but making love to you?

Spurred on by a message from his mentor, Ghost embarks alone on a journey through mystical underground tunnels and lost civilizations to the frozen lands of his origin, seeking a way to neutralize the threat back home. While he struggles to find a balance between his duties as a witch and his calling as a seer, all Ghost really wants is to return to the haven he has found in Gerry’s arms.

ExcerptWarm. Warm, strong arms surrounded him. Ghost smiled and moved closer, burying his face in the hard muscle of a shoulder. He knew he needed to get up to tend to his patients, but he was still so tired. He nuzzled deeper into the shoulder that was… clearly not Gerry’s.

“The little one wakes.” A deep, rumbling voice pierced his fog of sleep.

Ghost shoved hard against the arms holding him. He wriggled free and sat up. He heard a door close somewhere behind him. “Let go of me,” he growled. He was wide awake now, his heart pounding against his ribs.

The man belonging to the arms was bare-chested, as was Ghost, to his chagrin. He was quite relieved to see he still wore his breeches, though relief didn’t stop him from glaring at the man in the bed with him.

“You’re fierce, little one. This is good to see. It means you are not too soft, like the rest of the outlanders from down below.” The man sat up as well. His long white hair was bound back in many braids, each one tipped with a bead carved from the red wood of the South. An intricate black tattoo covered both his arms. The man’s blue eyes watched Ghost with undisguised amusement. “You have jewels in your head, little one. Did the woman decorate you so?”

“What woman?” Ghost retorted, watching the man for any untoward movement. “Are you talking about the Witch? Is she here?”

“Outlanders do not ask. They listen. And answer.” The man’s voice dropped to a warning snarl. “Hair and eyes do not make you one of us, little one. Do not presume you have a place here.”

aboutclip_image008

I’ve always been a writer in some way, whether it was writing on the walls as a child, the copious notebooks I filled as a teen, or the volumes of fan fiction I wrote as an adult. Now I write erotic romance. We are creatures of sensation, craving touch and filled with desires we might not even want to admit to ourselves. Try as we might to ignore and deny the passion inside us, it’s still there. It cries for attention and finds its outlet in my writing.

Ghost’s Sight was written in response to a prompt from a friend and is an impassioned tale of two men who find each other in unexpected circumstances. Their story continues with Ghost’s Dilemma and possibly a third volume yet to come.

A New Year a new look, I say!

nereviews181x181Welcome to 2015 here at Naughty Edition Reviews. I am about to embark on a journey like no other; to read books that I would never read; to meet authors that I would normally bypass and to start with a fresh new attitude about self published and indie authors. Also on this journey I will talk about movies developed from books, and the dreaded clone factory that has become of what the romance genre has become.

I will also be posting video reviews, polls of cover art and many more sarcastic comments on the extraordinarily mundane thing I call my life.
