SERIES:  Paint #1

AUTHOR:  Emma Jaye

PUBLISHER: Self-Published

LENGTH: 333 Pages

BLURB:

Smile, wiggle, lie, apologise, and run for the hills.

That’s the formula Chris has used all his life, but this time, he has something he’s never had to lose before, a family that cares. The problem is, his new brother’s very edible friend isn’t fooled by his act. If his secrets are revealed, they won’t want him and he has nowhere else to go.

Thanks to a suicide bomber, ex-military police sergeant Jase Rosewood is back in the English countryside. His plans for quiet recuperation are ruined by the effervescent, go-go dancing twink who has everyone wrapped around his little finger. Luckily for the gullible Matt, Jase can smell a liar a mile away, and Chris Bacon, if that’s even his name, stinks to high heaven. Assigned ‘Chris-sitting’ duty while Matt’s on honeymoon, Jase has a week to discover what is hidden beneath the bright camouflage. It’s a job, just like any other, so why does it feel so different?
Unfortunately, Jase isn’t the only one drawn to the boy who can’t stay still, but instead of wanting to reveal his true colours; they want to dull them forever.

Contains issues of physical abuse, but not between the central couple.

REVIEW:

This was an awesome book! In addition to being hot, it had me in tears on many occasions. The story begins with a glimpse of Jace’s background. After being wounded while serving in Afghanistan Jace returns home to attend his best friend’s wedding and finds a pleasant surprise. His best friend has a brother he never known about. The long lost brother, Chris is really the star of this book and I loved him so much. In addition to being homeless and a go go dancer at a gay bar, he has a case of ADHD that keeps him buzzing constantly to the point where sleep is impossible for him. Jace and Chris seem like they’ll be perfect for each other, but before they get together tragedy strikes.

I’ve read a few of Emma Jaye’s books and though her main genre is not usually M/M, the one mostly M/M book I read from her (Before the Succubus) was extremely hot and one of my all-time favorites . So, I wasn’t surprised to find spectacular erotica in this book, but what did surprise me were the dark themes to include human trafficking and mafia-like activity. I guess I was expecting something lighter, but there was definitely enough seedy and dark things happening in this book to keep me on the edge. In addition to the plot twists and turns, Chris drew me in from the beginning. He’s so broken inside by the cards life has dealt him, but at the same time he’s unbreakable. He’s bubbly and full of life which is in no way an act for him. I loved that he refuses to take medication and it pissed me off whenever other characters try to force or trick him into taking them. Though this book ends in a cliffhanger, I was in no way disappointed. The first three chapters of book two are included at the end which was the perfect tie over. I’m already half way through the second book, which explains a lot of the mystery surrounding Chris and his origins. Overall, this book was a win for me. I recommend Optical Illusion to anyone who loves dark m/m themes, and m/m erotic romance.

RATING: I really liked it!

Review: Untouchable Beauty (The Cubi #1) by Meraki P. Lyhne #DarkErotica #MM

TITLE: Untouchable Beauty Untouchable Beauty (The Cubi, #1)

SERIES: The Cubi #1

AUTHOR:  Meraki P. Lyhne

PUBLISHER: Independent

LENGTH: 299 Pages

BLURB:

Business school is not for Daniel. Not after making the cover of Teen Model. The only problem is that his parents don’t agree, and Daniel skips school to set his plans for fortune and fame in motion. Meeting the award-winning photographer Heimli will change his life, but not in the ways the nineteen-year-old young man expects.

At the age of four hundred thirty-six, Seldon has fed on more beautiful men than he can remember. Living in seclusion from the human world, humans are brought to the Incubi and Succubi as slaves to feed on. Amongst these slaves are the rare Untouchables. When Seldon is entrusted with the safekeeping of one, he has his work cut out for him—especially since this Untouchable gets on his nerves. And under his skin.

REVIEW:

First of all, I just have to say that I am quite fond of incubus story-lines, so this book started out on the right track for me. The story begins when the young model, Daniel, decides he’s going to go get discovered. He’s fed up with his parents talking about him going to college since he’s sure his looks can get him everything including fame. However, instead of landing a modeling job, Daniel is captured by a group of incubi. He quickly discovers that he is considered an untouchable, which means he doesn’t get worked over like some of the other less fortunate young captives. Even so, the fear of what could happen to him almost puts him over the edge.

Though this is the first book I’ve read from Meraki P. Lyhne, I had the pleasure of meeting the author this summer in Berlin, so I had a good idea about what to expect. All of the wonderful dark themes that I love so much were present in this book as well as a good healthy dose m/m/m erotica. I think the thing I loved the most was the sexual denial. Daniel, is deliberately excluded from all the incubus feeding going on in front of him. He considers himself straight, but after a while, he can’t deny being turned on by everything his captor does with other men. I wasn’t sure how things would play out for Daniel, so I was a bit shocked by the twist in the end. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series.

RATING: I loved it!

Release Day Review-5Stars! Bare by Lynn Kelling #MM #DarkErotica @LynnKelling

TITLE: Barebare

AUTHOR:  Lynn Kelling

PUBLISHER: Fantastic Fiction Publishing

LENGTH: 97K words

BLURB:

Ev Myers is a former high school football star and Republican State Senator’s son, raised in a strict Southern Baptist household where his only option was to be silent, behave and, no matter how he might be feeling, to put on a happy smile. Desperate to escape the pressure to be the man his family insists he become, Ev has fled Kansas to attend college and is working to find out who he really is beneath the lies and carefully composed public image. But when he applies for a job as a nude model for a life drawing class out of a desire to be seen in a way that shatters all of his family’s taboos, it’s just the first step on a path that leads him away from everything he’s ever known. Handsome and headstrong adjunct arts professor, Adam Buchanan, is the first person to recognize Ev’s potential, and his determination to have Ev realize the importance of truth and stark honesty, as well as the beauty of flawed vulnerability provides the hope Ev needs to escape a world rife with kidnapping, brainwashing and deadly determination cure homosexuality, using whatever means necessary.

REVIEW:

I devoured this book from beginning to end, and loved every moment. Bare was definitely on the lighter side compared to what I’ve read from Lynn Kelling , but it still had a lot of the dark eroticism I love. The book begins when Ev, the son of a conservative senator, decides to take a job as a nude model at his college. On his first day on the job he meets an instructor, Adam, who offers him a job working as a nude model in his own private studio. Though Ev considers himself straight, he can’t completely deny his attraction to the alluring man who little by little breaks him down and allows him to see and accept who he really is. Ev wants to accept himself and his desire for men, but the idea of his family finding out makes him fear for his safety.

This really was a fantastic read. There were dark parts in this book, but what drew me in the most was Ev’s vulnerability as Adam pushes him to see and accept his desires for men. Though the way Adam does this felt slightly sadistic in nature, Adam never does anything against Ev’s will, and their relationship ends up being amazing and beautiful. Lynn Kelling did an excellent job with this one, and like always with her books, I was left wanting more. I highly recommend Bare to anyone who loves MM Dark Erotica, D&S Relationships, and MM Romance.

TITLE: Until I Fade: A Kol Anderson AnthologyUntil I Fade

AUTHOR: Kol Anderson

PUBLISHER: Self-Published

LENGTH: 330 pages

BLURB:

A collection of taboo, dark shorts.

(New Edited Version)

(A collection of brand new and previously published Kol Anderson taboo shorts. Newly edited and never before seen stories.)

Release Date: July 04, 2016

Don’t be Afraid of the Dark 

Destiny is a strange thing. It can be fickle at times, and it can make you miss out on incredible connections that would set you on the journey of your lifetime. But the thing is, you’ll never know what you missed out on.

Sometimes Destiny takes pity on you and lets you meet the person you are supposed to, at just the right time. When Jensen first saw Liam, he lost his heart. Even if it took him a while to realize that. It’s okay, though. He had to grow and learn some more before he was the man Liam needed to save him from a life he was trapped in.

Supernatural forces collide to give Jensen the strength he needs to evolve into the man Liam waited his whole life for, and when their souls finally slam into each other, neither will be the same again.

WARNINGS: VIOLENCE, DUB-CON, NON-CON, ABUSE, VIOLENCE

Slave 

It’s the worst feeling in the world, seeing him with someone else. There’s nothing I wouldn’t do, no limits I won’t go to get him back. But he won’t give me a chance. He won’t so much as look at me because he thinks I don’t belong to him anymore.
But that’s the whole thing.
I don’t belong anywhere.
Doesn’t matter where I go or who I am with I am always alone. There is something wrong with me, there has to be because no one else seems quite as miserable at being without a master.
But don’t we all owe our freedom to something?
People are slaves, aren’t they? To their jobs, to their partners, to their children, even to their lifestyles?
We all have those little kinks that we don’t tell anyone about, because we think we’re going to be judged for them, and because we’re slaves to society’s rules.
In a world where slavery is the norm I’m a slave to my needs.
To him.
And I need to get him back.

WARNINGS: HARDCORE BDSM, DUB-CON, NON-CON

Sin 

Samuel “Sin” Taylor doesn’t know the difference between sex and intimacy, but maybe that’s not his fault. He grew up in a world where it was easier to get physical pleasure than to find love. But as a prostitute working the streets, Sin thinks he’s finally found his true calling. After all sex is the one thing he’s good at, right? But when Isaac enters his life through mere coincidence, Sin finds it a relief to be someone other than Sin.

How long can he keep up the charade?

WARNINGS: DUB-CON, NON-CON, ABUSE, VIOLENCE, DRUG USE

Fugue 

Ever felt like the world thinks you’re crazy? Welcome to my world. I tried normal, but eventually the truth catches up to you. Thank God for Evan, he believes me. But no man is a saint, and eventually the stories of aliens and tentacles and kidnappings just become too much for anyone to believe anymore.

But I know what happened. I know what they did to me. The voices are calling me back now. They’re calling me to be with her, my daughter. And I can’t resist it anymore.

WARNINGS: ABUSE, SELF HARM, OFF PAGE NON-CON AND KIDNAPPING, VIOLENCE

Goodreads Link

REVIEW:

Kol starts out gently, his voice like a lover’s tempting whisper in the dark. His poetry sets the stage for what will be four very different stories within an extremely well-written anthology, and the tone carries on throughout. There’s desperation and hope, desolation and solace; there’s pain and relief, peace and terror. It all goes on through these pages. There are similarities in the four stories, but overall, they couldn’t be more different.

There’s an almost dreamlike quality to these stories, something that lures you in and refuses to let you go until the end. I found myself highlighting line after line of beautiful words that appealed to me and I wanted to remember.

In Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark, we get a taste of the paranormal set against the backdrop of a world that seems grim for the characters involved. I want to know more about the characters and the world; my only complaint is that I’m not a huge fan of insta-love angles. But this line: “I don’t need you to feel sorry for me, that’s not what I want. I want you to love me” more than made up for it.

Slave follows the path of a broken-hearted sub whose master turned his back on him, and he tries to find solace anywhere and everywhere he can. There’s a surreal feeling to the entire peace, as though I’m in a dream that I can’t fully awake from. I’m not sure what I like better — the opening poem or the story itself. I loved Jesse, and everything he did felt real throughout the entire piece.

And then there was Sin. Sin isn’t for the faint of heart — and while I don’t consider myself particularly faint of heart, I think mine broke all the same. Those with issues involving incest and rape should steer clear of this one completely. There’s just enough hope to keep my heart from being completely crushed, but I noted at this point that the anthology is steadily darkening.

Finally, there’s Fugue. Fugue isn’t my type of story, but it’s an interesting one all the same. It follows a young man who believes he’s been tortured by aliens and his doctor, who’s desperate to help someone he feels has been failed by others. There are points where you can’t be sure if it’s a sci-fi short or a short on the effects of mental illness, but either way, the effect is profound.

Overall, the taboos mentioned in the tags and above are very much a present part of the stories, but they aren’t dwelled upon for too long. There’s just enough detail to let you know what’s going on, and then Anderson continues with the story: because this is all about the story, not the taboos.

Beautiful writing.

RATING: I loved it! (Even if it is going to haunt me for a while)

5 Star Review: The Billionaire’s Puppy – The Complete Series by D.J. Heart #DarkErotica #MM

REVIEWED BY LARK

 

TITLE: The Billionaire’s Puppy The Billionaire's Puppy - The Complete Collection

The Complete Collection

AUTHOR: D.J. Heart

PUBLISHER: Self Published

LENGTH: 528 Pages

BLURB:

This collection contains all eighteen installments of the Billionaire’s Puppy series – a dark erotic fantasy featuring extreme bdsm, puppy play, domination, and a handsome billionaire whose moral compass has completely malfunctioned…

Rex is tired of gold diggers and boyfriends who refuse to get kinky with him. He wants someone he can come home to and use however he wants, without all the drama of a relationship. Without having to worry that they’ll say no…

(This 100,000 word erotic series features bondage, puppy play, leather, boot fetish, muscle worship, rough sex and a whole lot more!)

Goodreads Link

REVIEW:

Merciless and unapologetic, D.J. Heart leads us through the story of Rex, a billionaire who signs a desperate young man up for a year of service doing anything–and I do mean anything–he wants. Rex decides he wants a puppy, and his Chief of Security is more than happy to train Cody to the task of pleasing his master. Max is sadistic, something his employer enjoys more than a little, and he subjects Cody to more and more extreme forms of puppy play as the collection continues.

The pace continues to build with the introduction of Brick, the perpetually horny but flawlessly obedient stud puppy, who makes Cody into his bitch. At this point, we’re introduced to elements of non-consensual service, something that at first worries Rex but eventually turns him on. The kinks are the real deal: puppy play, obviously; dubious consent, non-consent, BDSM, bondage, piss, chastity, and drugging at this point.

Every time Rex starts to get a little restless–and even sometimes before–Max brings in another dynamic for him to play with. This includes two wild pups, Spike and Diablo, who are mostly feral and not well-trained at all. Rex decides to take things a step further, much to Max’s delight; when indulging Cody’s interest in worshiping a sweaty man, he discovers an interest in breath play.

This goes too far for Cody, who so far has been enjoying the kinks to at least some degree. Even his new restrictive rubber suit doesn’t bother him as much as this. I was relieved, admittedly, when both Rex (and Heart) backed off; we got a breather in the next chapter, so to speak, as Cody recovers and Rex considers his future with the same glimmers of humanity we’ve seen of him throughout the book. The rest of the book indulges in pony play and to my disturbed mind, left me feeling like it lightened up a good bit. (If, you know, NC pony play is considered light.)

In the end, this ended almost as–dare I say it?–at the very least a “happily for now” feeling. I think Heart could do more with these characters if he chose to, and I liked the open nature of the end.

Tl;dr version: Light on the plot, heavy on the tropes, hot as fuck. If you’re into dub- and non-con and puppy play, this is a must-read.

RATING: I loved it!

Review: Antidote (Don’t… #2) by Jack L. Pyke #DarkErotica #MM

TITLE: Antidote Antidote (Don't..., #2)

SERIES: Don’t… #2

AUTHOR: Jack L. Pyke

PUBLISHER: Fantastic Fiction Publishing

LENGTH: 407 Pages

BLURB:

Video footage of Jack Harrison sleeping with Cutter, a man who has mutilated teenagers, should have stayed dead and buried with the man who had filmed it. Yet when footage to Jack’s past starts appearing on Internet porn sites, Jack’s whole world is again turned on its head. At first the porn links are done to unsettle, to disrupt Jack’s fire and ice world: all the sexed-up adrenaline of being caught between the pleasure to Gray Raoul’s BDSM kink, and the gentleness of Jan Richards’ vanilla touch. But when the content of the porn sites force even Gray to turn his back on Jack, leaving Jack isolated and away from the full protection of the Master’s Circle, Jack is left at the mercy of a group of men who are out to alter Jack’s whole perception on his BDSM lifestyle.

As brutally as possible, Jack’s sex life is now live webcam feed for a whole new audience.

REVIEW:

My god! I need more stars for this one. Five stars are not even close to being enough! Antidote is the third book I’ve read by the author and by far my favorite. The book begins with a glimpse of the three men’s happy world. Jack has his “okay” to return to being a master’s sub and they are all crazy about each other. However, before Jack can get back into it, he receives a disturbing video from his past. Then everything goes downhill when Jack and Jan wake up to find themselves abducted and in a nightmare. Even when it appears the nightmare is over, it’s not because the damage they’ve inflicted runs too deep.

I fell in love with this book from the beginning. There is so much angst and the situations are so intense. As they try to piece their lives back together, the pain they all endure over Jack’s trauma is just heartbreaking. Though Jack endures most of the torture, I really felt sorry for Jan and what he goes through.  I’m so glad I continued with this series. I wasn’t very attached to the first book, but now that I’ve read book 2, I can’t wait to read more. I highly recommend Antidote to anyone who loves m/m dark erotica with lots of angst.

Review: Betrayed (Bound Gods #3) by Adrienne Wilder #MM #DarkErotica #NewRelease

Bound Gods: Book 3 Betrayed

The stakes are rising.

As the god-son closes in leaving more bodies in its wake, treason and betrayal against the Association is unveiled. An inquiry for the Goddesses has been called, threatening everything Leo holds dear.

And the Chimera is not about to let go without a fight.

Despite the dangers lurking in the shadows, Leo wants his doxie Kaleb to think of only one thing. Him. His training. His purpose. And embrace the reality of what he is and not be ashamed of his attraction to Aaron, the doxie tossed aside by Sol.

Attraction is one thing. Bringing the boy to their bed is something else entirely. Kaleb can’t possibly want anyone but Leo. A lie Kaleb will pay dearly for. Penance Leo will be more than happy to deliver.

But penance for a lie will pale in comparison to what Kaleb must do to keep Sol from taking Aaron away, and invoking the Chimera into a lifetime in chains.

Goodreads Link

REVIEW:

Extraordinary dark erotica! The plot thickens with book 3 which begins with Kaleb’s realization that he desires the discarded doxie, Aaron. Though there is a lot of sex in this book, it’s all very hot, and I never once tired of it. In addition to Kaleb’s training, Leo learns more about the plot which brought Kaleb into being, and Leo throws the other gods for a loop by making an unexpected doxie request.

This was an exciting and erotic addition to the Bound Gods series. Kaleb is taken to new heights and his limits stretched even further, while Leo continues his plan of weaponizing Kaleb’s ambrosia so no god but Leo can touch him. I enjoyed learning more about the god’s plotting, and revelations about the mysterious monster targeting doxies is starting to give me ideas about where things might be going. Though I felt bad for what Kaleb had to endure, I enjoyed the exciting way that this book ended. I look forward to reading the next installment in this series.

Review: Chained (Bound Gods #2) by Adrienne Wilder #DarkErotica #MM #LPRTG @Adrienne_Wilder

TITLE:  ChainedChained (Bound Gods, #2)

SERIES:  Bound Gods #2

AUTHOR:  Adrienne Wilder

PUBLISHER: Self Published

LENGTH: 194 Pages

BLURB:

Leo has been sent on a mission to find a missing doxie. And after weeks at Leo’s side, Kaleb is suddenly alone. Free of the cruelty the Chimera, he should be rejoicing. But instead, he becomes aware of a void in his heart, he never knew was there until Leo wasn’t there to fill it. When Leo returns Kaleb is faced with the choice of disobeying Leo—forcing him to take ambrosia—or risk losing him forever.

With a single flower, Leo is back under the control of the Association. And what kind of punishment is suitable for a doxie who disobeys his Master, even though it saves his life? Leo has a list of ideas, starting with Kaleb’s first visit to a Gathering.

At the Gathering of the gods, doxies, and mortal men, Kaleb first lays eyes on Aaron. The beautiful doxie is presented by the god Sol. There he will be fed the ambrosia, Awakened to his journey of immortality, and then serve his god, Sol, for all to see. Only the horror of Aaron’s treatment by Sol makes Kaleb realize monsters come in many forms.

And not all of them hunt doxies.

Goodreads Link

REVIEW:

This book begins when Leo returns from a mission to find a missing doxie. Though Leo kills many of the people responsible for taking him, Leo is injured multiple times. Before he stopped taking ambrosia, he would have healed almost instantly from any wound, but since the drug is out of his system, his immortality is at risk. The other gods fear they may lose Leo and convince Kaleb to feed him the flower with a kiss. Kaleb knows Leo doesn’t want the drug, but he can’t stand the thought of losing Leo. After Kaleb feeds him the flower, Leo is healed, but he is once again hooked on the substance he wanted so badly to escape. Leo wants to punish Kaleb by taking him to a gathering where he would be free for others to touch, but when they arrive Leo guards him jealously. Though the other gods imagine they will have a go at Kaleb, Leo is willing to face the worst punishment to keep that from happening.

Chained was just as erotic and extreme as the first book. Kaleb’s punishments are excruciating, but at the same time amazingly hot. The chemistry between Kaleb and Leo is off the charts, and burning hotter as the effect of the ambrosia that Kaleb emits becomes so strong that it leaves them both passed out for days after they are together. In addition to the unbelievable erotica, we learn more about the world of the gods and doxies. There’s a monster on the loose hunting doxies, and there is so much tension between the gods over Leo’s desire to keep Kaleb that I can imagine some kind of war on the horizon. I was so sad about what happens to Aaron. I don’t know if it’s possible, but I’m hoping that Kaleb has the gift of healing. I look forward to seeing what happens next. I recommend this book to anyone who loves m/m dark erotica, dub-con, and m/m dark fantasy.

Spotlight: Tame a Wild Human by Kari Gregg #DarkErotica #MMFantasy

TITLE:  Tame a Wild Human Tame a Wild Human

AUTHOR:   Kari Gregg

PUBLISHER:  Riptide

LENGTH:  71 Pages

BLURB:

Drugged, bound, and left as bait on the cusp of the lunar cycle, Wyatt Redding is faced with a terrifying set of no-win scenarios. Best case: he survives the coming days as a werewolf pack’s plaything and returns to the city as a second-class citizen with the mark — and protection — of the pack. Worst case: the wolves sate their lusts with Wyatt’s body, then send him home without their protection, condemning him to live out the rest of his short life as a slave to the worst of humanity’s scorn and abuse.

Wyatt’s only chance is to swallow every ounce of pride, bury his fear, and meekly comply with every wicked desire and carnal demand the wolf pack makes of him. He expects three days of sex and humiliation. What he doesn’t expect is to start enjoying it. Or to grow attached to his captor and pack Alpha, Cole.

As the lunar cycle ends, Wyatt begins to realize that the only thing to fear more than being sent home without the pack’s protection is being sent home at all.

Byron is tall, handsome, well spoken, wealthy, and has outstanding taste in wine and food. You’ll be impressed by his impeccable attire and eloquence in conversation, ranging from Baroque art to the newest advances in pharmacology. With his charming smile and elegant manners, Byron truly is the perfect date… and who doesn’t love a man who appreciates opera?

What’s the catch, you ask?

Just this: if Byron finds you suitable, he will subject you to utterly depraved forms of torture.

No, I’m not talking about S&M.

Byron will mutilate, rape, and then kill you. Don’t think that you will survive the encounter, because you won’t. He has a perfect record.

Intrigued? Would you like me to arrange a rendezvous? It has to be in the next few days because he’s leaving on a trip south to much warmer climes, and his calendar will be completely full.

Yes? Very good. I will make a reservation for two under the name of Smith.

Who am I? I’m Gloria, his personal assistant.

Educated in Art, History, and Anthropology. Worked mostly in the software industry. Currently an author and freelance graphic designer. Painter. Proud pit bull owner. I’m told I’m one helluva cook.

Started to write in 2014. Love it. Will keep doing it until I stop.

I mainly read KGB/CIA thrillers, science fiction, fantasy, horror, graphic novels, medical texts, nautical history
