    Gideon Cross: As beautiful and flawless on the outside as he was damaged and tormented on the inside. He was a bright, scorching flame that singed me with the darkest of pleasures. I couldn’t stay away. I didn’t want to. He was my addiction…my every desire…mine. My past was as violent as his, and I was just as broken. We’d never work. It was too hard, too painful…except when it was perfect. Those moments when the driving hunger and desperate love were the most exquisite insanity. We were bound by our need. And our passion would take us beyond our limits to the sweetest, sharpest edge of obsession.…

    This one was not nearly as hot or sexy as the first book. He's broken she's broken, everyone is broken....now how do we get our neuroses to all live happily ever after together.

    It wasn't bad, I was just expecting much more.

    Jesse Ward drowned her with his intensity and blindsided her with his passion, but he kept her away from his dark secrets and broken soul. Leaving him was the only way Ava O'Shea could survive. She should have known that Jesse Ward is impossible to escape - and now he's back in her life, determined to remind her of the sensual pleasures they had shared. Ava is equally determined to get at the truth beneath this man's steely exterior. That means letting herself get close to the Lord of the Manor once more.

    Story

    The Damaged Dominant seems to be a running theme these days, but this one pushes that beyond the norm. The first book was enjoyable, this one...I wanted to choke the crap out of both of them.

    He's a disaster......with obsessive behaviors that border on abusive. The adolescent wall / window punching, trying to separate her from friends and family, jealousy driven outbursts manipulations and assorted other generally creepy attributes just start to grate on you about half way through. I'm not even delving into the Binge drinking / I'm not an alcoholic thread.

    Her acceptance of his sabotaging her career, beating up random men, and karmic backlash of his "reckless" Life are just a little much.

    Perhaps if we didn't push so hard for the trilogy this might have been ok......I would rather read one great book then three with random made up issues that border on psychosis to fill space.

    War has taken everything from me. My family. My home. My innocence. In a country blasted by war and wracked by economic hardship, a young orphan girl like me has very few options when it comes to survival...Thus, I do what I must to live, to eat, and I try very hard to not consider the cost to my soul. My heart is empty, and my existence brutal. The one impossibility in my life is love. And then I meet HIM.

    Story

    This book started out really great. The narrators did a wonderful job creating believable characters with subtle nuisances and speech patterns as well accents.

    There were so many contradictions and impossibilities in the book that at one point it becomes frustrating. The premise was good, the writing was good.....but the implausibility of a "virginal prostitute" in a country where adultery is punishable by death, who's brother is an insurgent and she becomes an American sympathizer is just too much.

    I also take issue with plots where the female characters is so damaged that the sexual content of the book becomes a little creepy. I'm all about depravity, as long as it is consensual. When a character is "wounded" she is not actually able to rationally give consent it makes me a little ill.

    Jasinda Wilder is a talented writer and I would definitely read another of her books....the issue was the plot, not the writer.

    Young interior designer Ava O'Shea has no idea what awaits her at the Manor. A run-of-the-mill consultation with a stodgy country gent seems likely, but what Ava finds instead is Jesse Ward - a devastatingly handsome, utterly confident, pleasure-seeking playboy who knows no boundaries. Ava doesn't want to be attracted to this man, and yet she can't control the overwhelming desire that he stirs in her. She knows that her heart will never survive him and her instinct is telling her to run, but Jesse is not willing to let her go. He wants her and is determined to have her.

    Story

    Oh I am sooo disappointed.

    This started out with such great potential.....The sex was hot, the power exchange seemed eminent...and then....splat. Before I could saw "Hold the fish & chips!!" I was spiraling into the depths of a grown woman's whiney mostly internal dialogue and a man's brooding non-communicative obsessive love that we generally only see in books featuring sparkly vampires.

    By the second half of the book I was so tired of listening to the indecision that I caught myself just tuning the book out......I would snap back into it with a "OOOHHHH that's hot" and within minutes I was trying to figure out what happened in the last 5 minutes of Supernatural that my DVR cut off.

    Maybe I liked it, maybe I didn't....maybe I need it and that's really what the problem is...I'm putting it down, no I'm finishing it right now no, I'm throwing it out...no.... Ya, you get the idea.

    Fast girls don't mind being the girl everyone is talking about, as long as all eyes are focused their way. They are wanton, daring, shameless, and bold. Fast Girls celebrates the girl with a reputation, the girl who goes all the way, and the girl who doesn't know how to say "no." Featuring writing by Tristan Taormino, Kayla Perrin, Donna George Storey, D. L. King, Kristina Wright, Saskia Walker, Jacqueline Applebee, Tess Danesi, and others, Fast Girls is a racy, provocative collection of erotica by the cream of the crop of female erotica writers.

    As Brianna comes to terms with the realization that she is no longer a slave, she must figure out what she wants for her life. Forgetting her past isn't an option. It is an integral part of who she is now, and it will forever shape her view of life. The one thing she knows is that she cannot imagine her life without the man who saved her, but can she be what he needs? Stephan never imagined falling in love with the woman he rescued, but the thought of her no longer being part of his life is physically painful. The scars from her past continue to haunt her, and he is helpless to stop them.

    Story

    To be completely fair I should preface this review with a qualifier ~I couldn't get through the whole thing~.

    Book one of this series wasn't spectacular, but it was okay. This may be the worst second installment in history.

    Anna's inner dialogue makes her sound like an ill-bred golden retriever. She is depicted as being so damaged and so traumatized that it makes Stephen's desire to make her his submissive creepy.

    The final straw for me came about two hours into the listen ( nothing erotic having happened up to that point) when she is so broken she can't manage to say his name without sounding it out like it was swahili.

    Submissives are wonderful because they are strong and empowered by their service and sexual freedoms. That is nowhere near what this is.

    When a stalker ratchets up his attempts to get to her, cable sex-talk-show host Morgan O'Malley turns to Jack Cole - a self-proclaimed dominant - for help. Though Jack is a bodyguard, Morgan feels anything but safe in his presence. Because slowly and seductively, Jack is bringing her deepest fantasies to the surface. And when he bends her to his will, what's more shocking than her surrender is how much she enjoys it and how she starts to crave his masterful touch.

    This was truly awful....really. I made it about 45 minutes into the book before I just had to turn it off. A woman who works at a sex club got fired from her last job for having sex at work, offers to have a threesome out of the blue with another employee......but dumps her boyfriend for talking dirty to someone on the phone? Ya....that happens.

    I don't expect realism, it is fiction afterall, but sheesh.....there ought to be enough in there that I can get caught up in the fantasy of it.

    I suppose it might get better later in the book, but I'll never know.

    Imagine The Story of O starring a Berkeley Ph.D. in comparative literature, who moonlights as a bike messenger, with a penchant for irony, self-analysis and as well as anal pleasures. Set in both San Francisco and the more chateau-friendly, Napa Valley, Weatherfield's deliciously decadent novel takes you on a sexually explicit journey into a netherworld of slave auctions, training regimes, enticing "ponies", (people) preening for dressage competitions. Desire runs rampant in this story of uncompromising mastery.
