BLURB:

Brady Garrett is back on Earth. He’s living with his partner Cam and they’re raising his sister Lucy together. Life is better than some feral reffo from Kopa has any right to hope, and Brady knows it. He’s even grateful for it, most of the time. He loves Cam, even though he’s afraid that he’s not good enough for him, and he’s still having nightmares about the alien Faceless.

Cameron Rushton loved being a pilot once, and he still feels the pull of the starlight. He’s building a life with Brady now, and with Lucy. Life is good, even if it’s not without its complications. Both Brady and Cam are dealing with the endless cycle of interviews, tests, and questions that the military hierarchy hopes will reveal the secrets of the aliens who could very easily destroy humanity. They have each other though, and together they’re making it work.

But from out in the black, Kai-Ren is still watching and everything Brady and Cam think they’ve won, they stand to lose all over again.

TITLE: Dark Space Dark Space (Dark Space, #1)

SERIES:  Dark Space #1

AUTHOR:  Lisa Henry

PUBLISHER: Loose ID LLC

LENGTH: 216 Pages

BLURB:

Brady Garrett needs to go home. He’s a conscripted recruit on Defender Three, one of a network of stations designed to protect the Earth from alien attack. He’s also angry, homesick, and afraid. If he doesn’t get home he’ll lose his family, but there’s no way back except in a body bag.

Cameron Rushton needs a heartbeat. Four years ago Cam was taken by the Faceless — the alien race that almost destroyed Earth. Now he’s back, and when the doctors make a mess of getting him out of stasis, Brady becomes his temporary human pacemaker. Except they’re sharing more than a heartbeat: they’re sharing thoughts, memories, and some very vivid dreams.

Not that Brady’s got time to worry about his growing attraction to another guy, especially the one guy in the universe who can read his mind. It doesn’t mean anything. It’s just biochemistry and electrical impulses. It doesn’t change the truth: Brady’s alone in the universe.

Now the Faceless are coming and there’s nothing anyone can do. You can’t stop your nightmares. Cam says everyone will live, but Cam’s probably a traitor and a liar like the military thinks. But that’s okay. Guys like Brady don’t expect happy endings.

Review: Fidelity by Lia Black

TITLE:     FidelityFidelity

AUTHOR:     Lia Black

PUBLISHER:     Vinedark/ BlackHouse Press

LENGTH:     213 Pages

BLURB:

How far would a man go in the name of faith?

Fydelis was once worshiped as the Angel of Fidelity, but his love for Gareth, a mortal knight, caused him to fall from the heavens. He has now become the demonic aspect of Regret, and the unwilling plaything of the Sunderer, the darkest of all dark gods. His only hope is for death, but first, he must find someone to take his place as the Sunderer’s favorite toy.

Father Gareth De’Aubyn is a man tormented by his past and ready to sell his future to save the souls of his flock. Questioning the wisdom of war, he’s traded his Crusader’s armor for a cassock, and now ministers to the very people his army sent fleeing for their lives. When his church is attacked by unknown assassins, Gareth is mortally wounded, and with his dying breath, he calls out to the Creator for help.

But his god does not answer.

Instead, the demon, Fydelis, heeds his call, cajoling him to promise his soul to the god of the underworld for a chance to tap into the powers of dark magic, and set everything right.

A stranger to Gareth, the man who once swore to him his honor and his love, Fydelis is forced to make the dying priest an offer he can’t refuse: in return for sparing the lives of those under his care, Gareth must collect several very stubborn souls.

Together, they’ll begin a journey that will test everything they thought they knew about faith, love, and fidelity.

Content warnings: Graphic violence, fantasy-based theosophical overtones, dub-con, rape, heavy on the dark at times, snarky banter, hot and sweet m/m sex.

REVIEW:

As a knight, Gareth swore himself to his guardian angel, Fidelity, who he thought of as a spouse he would never be allowed to touch. However, when Gareth becomes disenchanted with the corruption in the crusades, he leaves the knighthood to become a priest.

The book starts when Gareth is dying following the massacre of his congregation. He calls to the heavens for help, but he receives help instead from the underworld. The demon, Fydelis, assists Gareth in exchange for his soul and the souls of twenty others, which he is tasked with collecting. When all is set to right in his church, Fydelis is still hanging around, and it becomes clear that he wants more than Gareth’s soul. Despite the demon’s temptation, Gareth sticks to his vows of chastity and remains true to his beloved angel, Fidelity. Along their journey to collect souls, Gareth continues to resist Fydelis, but grows fond of him and starts to care for him. The book ends in a twist, with love that is truly heartbreaking.

I don’t generally read books with theological undertones, but I took a chance on Fidelity due to the promise of dark things to come. Though the main characters are a priest and a demon, I never once felt like a line was crossed. However, I did a lot of crying throughout the book, and I can’t even write my review without getting choked up. Although Gareth and Fydelis seemed to be traveling down a path that was sure to lead to tragedy and heartbreak, I was very pleased with how the story ended.

RATING: Loved it!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Lia Black tends to do everything the hard way; beginning with being born backwards into the world and now raising a teenage daughter by herself in conservative Upstate NY. Her career choices are no less extreme, including occupations of fine artist, computer geek, firefighter, and mortician’s assistant— just to name a few.

A fellow Author describes Black’s mind as “a glorious kaleidoscope of f*ckeduppery”; she loves the challenge of writing about people who probably have no business being together on the same planet, and who occasionally deal with questionable sanity/morality. It’s fun to glue broken things together and try to make something interesting and new.
–She especially loves broken boys who have lots of fascinating pieces.

Her characters often suffer through the worlds she creates for them, which leaves them a little cranky and sometimes less lovable than others in a romance genre. Yet Black swears that someday, “there will be comedy.”

Book Review: Bloodraven by PL Nunn

TITLE:     BloodravenBloodraven

AUTHOR:     PL Nunn

PUBLISHER:     Pam Nunnally

LENGTH:     663 Pages

BLURB:

A son of a forest dwelling people, Yhalen knows little of the world outside the ancestral forest, until he is captured by a band of ogres on a slave-taking mission. Only grim tales of the barbaric giants had reached the forest, but Yhalen soon learns that even the darkest fireside story only hinted at the brutality of these Northern warriors. He discovers the meaning of true fear at their hands, and only the awakening of ancient magic saves him from destruction. Surviving ogre viciousness, he finds himself given to Bloodraven, the half ogre, half human war leader as a slave. Yhalen, refusing to bend, soon pays the price for offending prickly ogre pride. But Bloodraven is no mindless, violent ogrish beast. Bloodraven has an agenda and Yhalen finds himself drawn in the wake into human and ogre politics, into bloodshed and cruelty and into the forbidden magic that is damnation in the eyes of his own people, but which might mean the difference between death and salvation.

REVIEW:

Extraordinarily sexy, moving, and over the top. I want more —a sequel; another adventure; anything. After 600+ pages, my only complaint is that there is not another book to continue the saga. Bloodraven is an M/M erotic fantasy; dark and violent with plenty of raw, primal sex. This is the first time I’ve read a book with a non-consensual relationship. Though the Stockholm syndrome is certainly at play, the love that emerges is very real and extremely hot. I am a huge fan of the “enemies to lovers” theme and PL Nunn pulls this off beautifully.

REVIEW: Absolutely, insanely crazy about it! I will definitely read this again!

Book Review: Neko by P.L. Nunn

TITLE:    NekoNeko

AUTHOR:    PL Nunn

PUBLISHER:    Lulu

LENGTH:    221 Pages

BLURB:

A young Neko is captured and sold into slavery. In the hands of brutal woodsmen, who consider him more animal than human, he learns the true meaning of brutality, until he is rescued by a mysterious trapper with secrets of his own.

WARNINGS! This is not a pleasant tale. There is brutal and inventive NON-CON, Bestiality, Torture, and exaggerated scenes of humiliation, sadism and bondage and gratuitous violent M/M sex. NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART. There will be resolution at the end, that was never addressed in the Comic book, but the Neko will go through hell before he gets it. You Have been warned.

REVIEW:

I can’t say I liked this as much as I liked Bloodraven. I’m glad that there was a happy ending for Neko, but for the first half of the book, I was wondering when things would start moving along in the story. It seemed like there was nothing but torture. It was very inventive torture, but it was never ending with no apparent escape or resolution in sight. Things got better later in the book, but not spectacular.  I rated Neko with four stars because I admire the author’s courage in writing something so taboo and out there. Of course, this book comes with strong advisories for non-con, violence and abuse. I recommend this novel to anyone who likes dark m/m erotica, and to anyone looking for where they draw the line. As for me, this book was crazy, but not enough that I felt I had to put it down. I’ll certainly be reading more of PL Nunn.

Book Review: The Claiming of Eve

TITLE: The Claiming of Evethe claiming of eve

SERIES: Taboo Tales of Paranormal Kink #2

AUTHOR:     Bella Swann

PUBLISHER:     Bella Swann Erotica

LENGTH:     58 pages

BLURB:

This is a very dark, erotic interpretation of the story of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden and their Paradise Lost. It begins with Adam and Eve in a state of innocence. Through a series of increasingly lustful BDSM encounters with paranormal creatures such as Raphael, Lilith, Lucifer, and Michael, Eve falls into sin and takes her loving husband with her. Warning: This is a work of fiction that contains sexually explicit materials meant for those over the age of 18 and contains elements of dubious consent, dominant male, submissive female, and ménages.

REVIEW:

Shocking, unbelievably hot, and full of tantalizing surprises. This has to be my favorite Bella Swann story yet. In this erotic retelling of the Adam and Eve story, Eve goes a lot further than biting the apple. The story begins with Adam receiving advice from the angel, Raphael, on how to master his wife’s wanton flesh. When Eve protests that Adam’s sexual desires are unnatural, Raphael steps in to assist in her training. Eve submits to her role, but when Adam leaves with Raphael, Eve has an encounter with Lilith and then with the Devil who tempts her to eat of the forbidden fruit. After discovering Eve’s transgressions, Adam and the angels have no choice but to punish her.

Though this story is extremely erotic, there were so many instances that I was so shocked by the sexual situations that I had to laugh. I just couldn’t believe it. With that said, this story is not for the religiously sensitive. With angel sex, devil sex, and a mélange of FF, MMM, and MMMF, the daring of the sexual situations is in this story is ingenious. Whenever I thought it couldn’t get better, it did.
