…and lures them all into danger. (M/M+)

REVIEW:

I had the unique experience of reading the prequel prior to reading this book which made seeing Evan again a great experience. The book begins when Evan’s twin brother, Brennan moves in with him. Since Evan never knew he had a twin brother and had never been used to having someone around, it’s a strange experience for him. Additionally, Evan is attracted to Brennan, which really complicates things. Shortly after his brother moves in Evan meets Alek and they hit it off. At the same time Brennan meets Luka, Alek’s twin brother, and they get together.

The plot of this book could have easily been quite confusing with two sets of identical twins dating each other but each character was so different and unique that it was very easy to keep them all apart even when it came to menage scenes. In addition to loving Evan and Brennan, I was drawn to Alek and Luka’s story which was a bit tumultuous. Overall, this book was extremely hot as well as moving since Evan is still trying to heal from his suicide attempt and all that happened to him. This is the first twincest book I’ve read, but I definitely look forward to reading more.

RATING: Loved it!

BLURB:

Lord Demir has spent his life trying to appease a brutal, selfish king, and keep the concubines under his care alive—and now he is on the verge of losing everything. The council wants to abolish the harems, there are no heirs to the throne, and the foreigners control the Steward. One wrong move will tip tensions into civil war.

Crown Prince Ihsan returns to find his home in turmoil, and the royal court so full of vipers it’s impossible to say which of them will strike first. Removing his father from the throne, one way or another, should be a simple matter. Staying alive and proving himself a worthy king will be far more difficult.

Crown Princess Euren has spent the last five years in hiding so that she could not be used against her father or Ihsan. But she is the daughter of a soldier, never meant to wear a crown, never trained to fight battles where words are the weapon of choice. If she hopes to keep herself and her loved ones alive, she’ll have to learn fast.

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.
