I’m filthy rich and dripping with power – but the
army left me broken beyond repair.
My jagged edges make me a nightmare.
She wants to join my dark solitude. But where she seeks solace, I seek sanity.
The Velvet Rooms provide our sanctuary. A place of safety, bliss and unbridled play, untainted by the clamor of reality.
Here, there is no sight. There is no sound.
Only skin against skin. Testing. Claiming.
But as much as I want her – she can never truly be mine.
Because the madness always finds me. Even in
the darkness.
And this time it may be too late to stop the
beast from destroying everything.
REVIEW
  ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Blue Velvet

Another hit by Linnea. Although this one is a bit different. This story deals with PTSD and how BDSM can become involved in the lifestyle.
I really enjoyed this story like I always do when I read one of Linnea’ s books

Linnea May brings you the riveting tale of a dark billionaire, an ethereal beauty – and their twisted game of seduction.

She is paid to lie and seduce – but I don’t want her insincere moans and fake smiles.

My investment in the elusive Velvet Rooms holds a promise for more.

And I always get what I want. Always.

No man ever made her scream and beg for release. A release that remained unattainable for her.

She claims I’m asking for the impossible. I will prove her wrong.

Because I know it’s not her body that needs to be conquered – it’s her mind.

But our relationship rests on unsound footing, a contract and nothing more.

And when my actions turn reckless, the vulnerable agreement may be our undoing…

REVIEW

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

There isn’t anything that Linnea May can’t write. This is a spin-off of her Violent Series. Welcome to Velvet Rooms where all your dreams come true.

Elene works for Violent Delights and is tired of it. She just can’t get into it anymore. So she goes to her boss and tells her she is done, she wants out. But that is when Elene finds out that there will be a new business opening up and Elene will have the option to be an Angel or a Devil. You can figure that one out. 🙂

Damon is a VIP to Violent Delights but has yet to find the one woman that he wants to keep for a while. But when he goes to the meeting with madam at Violet he walks into Elene. It isn’t for 6 months at the opening of Velvet Rooms that he finally sees her again.

This is a wonderful story of almost cat and mouse. Damon knows he will lose interest in Elene as soon as he has sex with her. Elene is used to giving the man anything and everything they want. Too bad Damon wants the real her, and she doesn’t know what that is. I loved this romance! I voluntarily read an advance reader copy for my honest review.

 ~~My Review for Whisky & You~~
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Be warned there is nothing sweet about this book. This book will tear you apart and spit you out. I came into this story thinking one thing. And then from the very first sentence, I could NOT stop reading. I read this book in one sitting.

JJ is nothing of what you think when you start the first chapter. I was so up in the air after the first couple chapters. I wanted to not like him and was for sure going to hate him. But once the story started to develop I LOVED him. What a tragic alpha man. He is so misunderstood and he deserved everything that comes to him.

Navy, holy crap. That girl is a warrior in every sense. No matter what Jordan has done to her, she comes up fighting. Even if it is being quiet and looking small, she is still fighting. I have no idea how she does it. But JJ is there to save her.

These two have a romance that is wonderful to read. And the other characters are just as wonderful. The ending is great and I can’t wait to read Kemps story! I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy for my honest review.

 ~~ My Review for Her Two Doms~~
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

So when Declan and Iain finally figure it out they are so surprised but happy. So when they continue talking she finds out that they are into some interesting things.

Ellie is more than interested to find out what is going on with Declan and Iain. These three find a great relationship even after having a childhood friendship that didn’t go as planned.

Good story. I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy for my honest review.


“Look at me, Ellie.” Fraze’s tone is quiet but compelling. I have no choice but to obey him. He continues, holding my gaze as he speaks. “We shouldn’t rush this. We won’t. But if you’re nervous about it—and Ellie, we can both see that you are—the sooner we get it over with the better. The first time is always a big deal. Your second time will be easier.”
“S-second time…?”
“Well, assuming you like it, obviously,” says Declan. “But I think you will.”
I swallow again and try to assemble some coherent thoughts. There are questions I need to ask. “Will it…? I mean… I get it, about the spanking and that it has to be on my bare bottom and all that. It’s personal, very intimate…”
“Part of the unique charm of a spanking, I always think,” offers Fraze.
I nod. Baring my backside for them is part of the thrill, I’m honest enough to admit that, if only for my own benefit. I reckon they already know.
“Go on,” Fraze encourages me. He is leaning forward, his elbows on his thighs and his fingers intertwined in front of him.
I have his undivided attention. Beside me, Declan is equally intent.
“It’s just…there are two of you. And earlier, you said something about sharing. About taking turns.”
“Yes,” agreed Declan, “we did.”
“Would one of you watch while the other…?” I grind to a halt, hopelessly out of my depth. I have two degrees and a PhD in clinical research methodology and don’t even know what questions to ask about a simple little spanking.
Declan squeezes my shoulders. “We could do it that way. Or we could both spank you at the same time. That would be our preference.”
“Okay,” I agree. I’m so far out of my comfort zone it hardly matters. “And would it…? I mean, what about sex?”
“What about sex?” Fraze tilts his chin, the glint in his emerald-coloured eyes softening perhaps a fraction.
“Would you expect me to sleep with you? With either of you? Both of you?” There. I’ve said it.
“Expect? No.” Fraze shakes his head. “If you only want the spanking, then it stops there.”
“Are you sure? What about what you want? Both of you?”
Declan is the one who answers. “Yes, we’re sure. It’s what you want that matters, Ellie. We’ve done this plenty of times before. We know how it goes, and you can believe us when we tell you that the fucking is an optional extra.”
“You spank a lot of women?” I shouldn’t feel jealous, but I do.
“Enough,” admits Declan
“Together? Both of you at the same time?”
“Yes, quite often at the same time. It adds to the fun, we find.”
“And…you fuck them, too?” I whisper.
“Yes, if they’re up for it. And before you ask, we like to do that together, too.”
Oh, dear sweet Lord. I should be running screaming from the building but instead I sit there, gazing into Fraze’s mossy eyes while Declan caresses my clavicle and moisture pools in my knickers.
“I think… I mean, perhaps… I’m not sure if…” I have quite lost the power of speech.
Fraze grins at Declan. “Just the spanking for now, I reckon.”

Series: The Davenports by SJ McCoy Includes- Oscar 📖Review📖

 
Title: Oscar
Series: The Davenports #1
Author: SJ McCoy
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 27, 2018

 

Blurb

 

Oscar Davenport always wins. Always. He doesn’t come second, and he sure as hell doesn’t lose. He’s founded and sold three tech companies, netting him almost a billion dollars. He ran a hedge fund worth hundreds of billions—until he got bored. His latest project, Six, a nightclub in LA is another winner. It’s both a successful business and a playground full of playmates.

He’s never met an obstacle he couldn’t overcome or a woman he couldn’t have.
Until now.

Grace Evans is the kind of girl you’d find curled up with a good book on a
Saturday night—at least, usually. This Saturday night is different. This
Saturday night she’s gotten all done up, in a dress she can barely breathe in
and heels she can barely walk in. She had to. She had to venture into the lair
of the enemy.

The enemy is Oscar Davenport, and his lair is his swanky nightclub. When she
lays eyes on him, she’s ready to believe he’s the devil incarnate. His wicked
smile, his beautiful eyes—everything about him is an invitation to sin. He
moves with the grace and arrogance of a big cat about to pounce. Unfortunately,
he’s moving straight toward her. He’s singled her out as his prey. He’s moving
in for the kill.

Little does he know that she isn’t about to surrender; in fact, he’s in for the
fight of his life.

~My Review for Oscar~

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
 
This is my first SJ McCoy story and I did enjoy it. It is a slow go at first. Oscar is a great character and I loved him. Grace is a tuff woman and the opposite of any woman that Oscar had ever dealt with before. They have a great romance story to be read. I loved Oscar and Gracie’s love story. I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy for my honest review.

Excerpt

Once she was inside the elevator, she jabbed at the button
again, this time trying to make the doors close. She really was shit out of luck this morning. Just as they began to slide together, a set of long, strong fingers slipped between them, and they slid open again. And there he was.

He stepped inside with a smile and a nod, then pressed to go
to the eighteenth floor. Shit. That was her floor. He couldn’t go there.
“What do you need?”
She stared at him blankly. “Need?” Could he somehow see
inside her mind, see all the months of a dry spell that had gone on way too long? Or could he see the images floating inside her head? Images of what the two of them could do if the elevator somehow got stuck.
The corners of his lips curved upward again. That just might
be the sexiest smile she’d ever seen. “Which floor?”
“Oh!” Well, wasn’t she an idiot? Her mind raced. She
couldn’t get off the elevator with him. He might think she was following him. “Seventeen.”
He hit the button, but before they started to move, the
doors slid open again. Thank God for that!
Two men and two women came in and turned to face the doors,
leaving Grace and the Big Cat alone in the silent space behind them. Grace gripped the tray with her two coffee cups and stared determinedly at the numbers above the door. She’d always suspected this was the world’s slowest elevator, but this morning’s ride confirmed it. Every second was torture. She
could smell him—all citrus and man. She’d swear he was looking at her, but she refused to allow herself to sneak a peek. He’d catch her.
She tried looking down at the coffee cups, but that just made a strand of her hair fall across her face. She wrinkled her nose and tried to blow it away, then she froze. There were those long, strong fingers again.
They brushed her cheek as they took the errant strand and tucked it behind her ear. If the heat had surged through her when he held the door open, then her blood was boiling in her veins right now. All the little hairs on the back of her neck stood up and sent shivers racing down her spine. Even her scalp
tingled. She turned. How could she not?
Those big brown eyes were twinkling with amusement. “I hope
I didn’t overstep? You looked uncomfortable.”
She shook her head mutely. What could she say, even if she
could find the breath to speak?
The elevator stopped, and she silently begged the people in
front of her not to get out. They couldn’t leave her alone in here with this guy—she would not be responsible for her actions. To her relief, they didn’t. Instead, two more got in, and that was quite a crowd. Everyone shuffled back alittle. She had no clue how it happened, but somehow, she ended up face to face
with Big Cat. She was in the corner, and he was right there in front of her, staring down into her eyes, that quirky little smile playing on his face again. She’d had a laugh with Spider the other night when one of the customers had tried hitting on her in the coffee shop. She’d told Spider that her sexual desires were dormant. Hell, had she been wrong about that. Standing here,
face-to-face with this guy, she discovered that her sexual desires weren’t just active—oh, no, they were rampant. She was grateful for the tray of coffee she was gripping. It gave her hands something to do that kept them from reaching up
to touch his face, maybe sinking into his hair or even sliding around his waist.
“Are you okay?”
She nodded rapidly, meeting his gaze briefly. Even she heard
the gasp she made when he rested his hand on her hip. What was he doing? You didn’t just do that to a stranger in a crowded elevator.
“Are you sure?” He looked worried now. She looked down to where his hand rested on her hip. Except it wasn’t his hand—it was the purse the woman in front of her had slung over
her shoulder. Grace couldn’t help it. She laughed. Wow, she needed to get laid. Okay, the guy was attractive, but he shouldn’t affect her this badly. “I’m fine, thanks. Have a great day.” She edged her way to the front and squeezed
out through the doors before they had a chance to open fully on the seventeenth floor. She couldn’t help it. She had to look back before they closed. He’d made his way to the front, too. He met her gaze with a smile.
Bye, Big Cat. She bid him a sad farewell. Atleast, in the real world, the world where she’d never see him again. She had a feeling her imagination would be seeing a lot more of him in the nights to come. She smiled back at him; there was no harm now. And he winked! The arrogant prick actually winked at her. She stood there staring as the doors slid shut, and then he was gone. 

 

Author Bio

I’m SJ, a coffee addict, lover of chocolate and drinker of good red wines. I’m a lost soul and a hopeless romantic. Reading and writing are necessary parts of who I am. Though perhaps not as necessary as coffee! I can drink coffee without writing, but I can’t write without coffee.

I grew up loving romance novels, my first boyfriends were book boyfriends, but
life intervened, as it tends to do, and I wandered down the paths of non
fiction for many years. My life changed completely a couple of years ago and I
returned to Romance to find my escape.

I write ‘Sweet n Steamy’ stories because to me there is enough angst and
darkness in real life. My favorite romances are happy escapes with a focus on
fun, friendships and happily-ever-afters, just like the ones I write.

These days I live in beautiful Montana, the last best place. If I’m not reading
or writing, you’ll find me just down the road in the park – Yellowstone. I have
deer, eagles and the occasional bear for company, and I like it that way :0)

~My Review for Under His Ink~
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Under His Ink is the start of a new series- Under His- that is loosely tied in with the Mister Series. Dahlia is roommates with Rachal from Mr. Ruin. So we get to see Rachal and Dahlia’s side of how things went in that book.

This story has a mafia theme which I loved. Dahlia and Ivan have a bad history. Ivan had to leave Dahlia when it was the worse of timing. But to save her life that is what he had to do. Years later Dahlia is making a name for herself and is in the spotlight. Ivan knows that it is just a matter of time until his uncle will go after her again. So he decides it is time to put his plan to work. But will everyone get out alive?

These characters are beautifully written, and the story is heart-wrenching. I loved it. The ending is great and I feel for Alexei. I hope we get his story soon. I voluntarily read an advance reader copy for my honest review.
