Spotlight: Stealing Innocents by Lisa Henry as Cari Waites

TITLE:    Stealing InnocentsStealing Innocents

AUTHOR:     Lisa Henry as Cari Waites

PUBLISHER:     Anglerfish Press

LENGTH:     273 Pages

BLURB:

Those who dare to scratch the surface of ordinary, everyday life may be horrified to find a sick underbelly beneath—a nightmare world populated by villains and victims, predators and prey, where the rules of society no longer apply.

Where you’ll find people like Danny, the boy who sells himself to pay for his father’s gambling debts and ends up in a situation more twisted than he ever imagined. Or Troy, the cop whose obsession with saving a brutalized human trafficking victim turns deadly. Or Drew, the mental patient who begins to suspect his nightly delusions of abuse by his doctor are actually real. Or David, the cuckolded husband who decides the best way to get revenge is to seduce his wife’s barely legal son.

Stealing Innocents is an exploration of our darkest human impulses, where sex is power, love is horror, and there’s no such thing as a happy ending.

Captain Gideon is a candidate at the Drago Star Academy and well on his way to fulfilling his lifelong dream—to be a Star Commander and fight the alien insurgency on Earth.

However, before he can complete his training, he is captured by an unknown entity who sells him to a sadistic alien master. He strives to follow his military training, but nothing can prepare him for the abuse he endures at the hands of his deviant captors.

Despite his disorientation, Gideon realizes things are not as they seem. Though his captors appear to be slavers, they have the resources of a government or rebel entity. To complicate matters, the air smells different, the people look strange, and the light of the sun is all wrong. Gideon’s only hope is escape, but if they’ve taken him from his home planet, is escape even possible?

The White House has ordered the execution of a highly sensitive covert operation in dragon-occupied territory. Though a Slash Op has a zero percent survival rate, the commanding general is forced to enlist his most prized officer for the task.

Major Gideon is embarking on his first mission in the dragon district. Yet Gideon has hardly recovered from all that Drago made him endure. For the past three months, Gideon has been plagued with dreams of Drago terrorizing him, but his dreams have gradually turned into sexual fantasies. Despite coming to terms with his longing to have Drago in bed, Gideon cannot suppress his desire to beat Drago’s face in. When Gideon is called for a mission in the most dangerous district on Earth, what freaks him out the most is the prospect of seeing Drago again.

Book Review: The Prisoner (Broken #1) by Kol Anderson

TITLE: The Prisoner The Prisoner (Broken: Season One, #1)

SERIES: Broken #1

AUTHOR: Kol Anderson

PUBLISHER: Self Published

LENGTH: 80 Pages

BLURB:

Aaron Taylor is a rent-boy.
The Dream everyone wants to come true.

Vincent Greene is the client from hell.
The man who wants to make sure that dream ends up BROKEN.

Just when Aaron thinks his life is beginning to make sense, his handler sends him to a new client. Vincent Greene looks like he might just be Aaron’s best client yet, but what Aaron doesn’t know, is that under Vincent’s alluring facade, lurks a heart capable of extreme cruelty.

REVIEW:

This book starts out with a glimpse of Aaron’s life as a rent boy. He’s in love with a man who is promising to leave his lover in order to be with him. Though Aaron wants to believe it, he has to keep working. He hooks up with his next client, Vincent, and discovers too late that Vincent is bad news. Aaron is taken captive and his only hope for escape is the client who told him he loved him.

This book was enjoyable, but not entirely what I expected. So far there seems to be three viewpoints. One is Aaron’s viewpoint, one is the client who professed his love to Aaron, and the last is Vincent, the client responsible for kidnapping Aaron. Everything seems in place except for Vincent’s viewpoint. Even if Vincent ends up falling for Aaron, I can’t see myself liking him. He’s a kidnapper and after everything he’s done to Aaron, there’s no way I’m going to warm to the jerk. I’m interested in figuring out where things are going, but from the way the book began, I imagined it would be a lot longer and have more of a story arc. I’m guessing now that the story arc will be split up between the three books in the trilogy. As it is, the book ended in a cliffhanger of sorts with nothing concluded. I guess I’ll have more to say about this series once I read book #2.

RATING: Liked it 🙂

Review: Evenfall: Director’s Cut Part I (In the Company of Shadows #1) by Santino Hassel & Ais

TITLE:  Evenfall: Director’s Cut Part IEvenfall: Volume 1: Director's Cut (In the Company of Shadows, #1 part #1)

SERIES:  In the Company of Shadows #1

AUTHOR:  Santino Hassell & Ais

PUBLISHER:  Unpublished

LENGTH:  334 Pages

BLURB:

In a post-apocalyptic future, the Agency works behind the scenes to take down opposition groups that threaten the current government. Their goals justify all means, even when it comes to their own agents.

In the newly revised Director’s Cut of Evenfall, the second volume follows Sin and Boyd through a long-term undercover mission in Mexico. They think the hardest part will be maintaining their covers and handling their attraction while living in close quarters, but that’s only the beginning of their newest trials.

When hard and fast decisions lead to catastrophic consequences, the two agents realize getting out of Mexico alive may be their biggest challenge yet.

Warnings: Explicit violence, sex, physical and psychological abuse.

REVIEW:

Boyd’s mother works for a secret agency and has decided to bring him on to be the partner of the highly dangerous, Sin. Though Sin tries everything possible to drive Boyd crazy, they end up falling for each other. They realize they want to be together, but they have to get past the agency and Boyd’s mother before that can happen.

Excellent action and romance. I love it! Both Boyd and Sin are damaged goods, but in this way, they are perfect for each other. Sin; the super sexy, extremely dangerous, and possibly psychotic secret agent is not so scary when paired with the timid, androgynous beauty Boyd. Although there’s a rocky start to their relationship; with almost every touch leading to an argument or misunderstanding, there is certainly love in the air and I’m hoping to see a lot of it in part II.

Spotlight: The Grand Ballast by J.A. Rock

TITLE:     The Grand Ballast The Grand Ballast

AUTHOR:     J.A. Rock

PUBLISHER:     Self-Published

LENGTH:     301 pages

BLURB:

In a future where live sex shows abound to keep a jaded population entertained, dancer Bode Martin falls for the brilliant and unstable Kilroy Ballast, who molds Bode into the star attraction of his erotic circus, the Grand Ballast. Drugged beyond any real feeling, Bode trades freedom and his once considerable pride for an illusion of tenderness—until he inadvertently rescues a young man from a rival show, and together they flee to an eccentric town in the west where love still means something. Valen’s not an easy man to know, and Bode shed his romantic notions under Kilroy’s brutal employ. Yet their growing bond becomes a strange and dangerous salvation as they attempt to overthrow the shadows of their pasts and wade together through a world of regret, uncertainty, beauty, and terror. But Kilroy won’t let Bode go so easily. Long ago, Bode was responsible for the loss of something Kilroy held dear, and he still owes Kilroy a debt. As the three men battle toward a tangled destiny, Bode must decide if his love for Valen is worth fighting for—or if he was and always will be a pawn in the story Kilroy Ballast will never stop telling. WARNING: Contains violence and noncon. Not a genre romance.

THOUGHTS:

Extremely dark with a lot of off page dark erotica and taboo elements. I would categorize this as m/m horror. Recommended to anyone who likes bittersweet m/m erotic romance.

RATING: I liked it!
