Review: Blank Canvas (Paint #2) by Emma Jaye #DarkThemes #MM

TITLE: Blank CanvasBlank Canvas (Paint #2)

SERIES:  Paint #2

AUTHOR:  Emma Jaye

PUBLISHER: Independent

LENGTH: 310 Pages

BLURB:

Chris Bacon is dead. Long live Chrisander Baccioni?

Unable to walk or talk coherently after a hit and run attack, Chris finds himself on the other side of the world with Jase firmly in babysitting mode. Pity and betrayal, even if it was for ‘his own good’ wasn’t something Chris tolerated from anyone, least of all from an ex-lover who was hanging around only out of a misguided sense of duty.

The barely breathing battered boy was all Kathleen had to wipe away her daughter’s shame and continue the Baccioni dynasty. Despite Chrisander’s unfortunate childhood, her grandson was young enough to mould into a god-fearing family man. Surely only an idiot would reject a life of respect and luxury with a beautiful, intelligent woman by his side, for a grubby little flat and a dirt poor, ex-army sergeant.

REVIEW:

Blank Canvas begins right where book one left off, so there was no guesswork or no time at all wondering what happened. After Chris’s accident, he wakes in the hospital to find that his mysterious grandmother from America has come to claim him.

Although she is rich and will pay for Chris to have all the best treatment as well as security in the States, Jase is skeptical about her motives. She makes it clear up front that having homosexual sex is a sin and that she intends to “help” her grandson. At this point things seem like they could get pretty scary, but Jase has no choice but to let the grandmother take him. However, no matter how little she thinks of Jase, he refuses to leave Chris’s side. It’s only when Jase lets down his guard that things get out of hand.

This book had me on the edge from the beginning. With all that Chris went through in the first book, I couldn’t imagine him being thrown into one of those religious “rehabilitation” places. I was really scared for him, but I was happy how things turned out. I also loved seeing the contrast and the almost clash between two cultures when the couple has to leave England for the States. Though there were some dark parts in this book and some near misses, I was in tears in the end and overjoyed with how perfect things wrapped up. This series was a fantastic adventure and I loved every moment. I recommend this book to anyone who loves m/m romance with dark themes.

RATING: I loved it!

Review: Puppy by R. Phoenix #MM #DarkErotica #Dystopia

TITLE: Puppy Puppy

AUTHOR:  R. Phoenix

PUBLISHER: Self-Published

LENGTH: 61 Pages

BLURB:

While other vampires glut themselves on the rewards of a world where humans are little more than food or entertainment, Liam has found himself bored with the new status quo. An attempt to alleviate his boredom brings him to Caleb, a man who’s willing to do what it takes to get out of the slums–even if it means becoming something less than human.

REVIEW:

This was a short but delicious story. Since I’ve read a few of the author’s books set in the same world, it was very easy for me to fall into this book. Puppy begins with the four hundred-year-old vampire, Liam, out on the prowl for something to fit his tastes. In his world, human’s have pretty much lost their appeal, but when he finds Caleb, he sees the potential in him. Though Caleb is bisexual and a top when it comes to men, he’s quite turned on by all the demeaning things Liam wants to do to him.

Though I’m not that into puppy play, the way R. Phoenix presents it in this book makes it very appealing. I like that how Caleb is taken without given a choice about it, but he’s not so reluctant because everything Liam does to him is so arousing. Overall, this story was great. I was a little bit surprised when it ended, so my only complaint is that I wanted to see more of them together. I recommend this book to anyone who loves M/M Dark Erotica and fantasy.

RATING: I liked it!

“The blood of the sphinx runs through my veins,” Sasha said as he inspected the warrior standing at attention before him. “It’s what makes my family line so potent—what gives us the power to make or break a man.”

Son of Cleopatra and Julius Caesar, Sasha is the king of kings. He’s the pharaoh, and he’s supposed to be the most powerful man in Egypt, but he’s convinced there’s something wrong with him. Maybe he’s in heat or maybe he’s just cursed, but no pharaoh should have such an insatiable need to be mated by another man. Even worse, the man he desires has never shown an inkling of interest in him.

When the young pharaoh finds himself the sole ruler of Egypt and under siege by the Romans, he has to find a way to deal with the desires consuming him or all will be lost.

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.

Review: Temper by R. Phoenix #MM #DarkErotica @RaissaPhoenix

TITLE: TemperTemper: A Ripples in the Status Quo Story: Season One (Episode Five)

SERIES:   Ripples in the Status Quo #5

AUTHOR:  R. Phoenix

PUBLISHER: Self Published

LENGTH: 146 Pages

BLURB:

Only one thing can keep Ashton safe from the supernatural predators who made the world into their depraved, twisted playground after the Takeover–but it’s the one thing that would steal the last remnants of his freedom. At every turn, society confronts Reese and Ashton with the way humans are treated as mere playthings to be used and discarded. When they realize their own desires and pride have no place in the status quo, Ashton and his werewolf lover understand they’ll have to engage in the deadly games played by those in charge if they want to make a difference.

But Reese isn’t a diplomat, and Ash is only human. Together, they must decide if they’re willing to work with the devil they know in what might change everything or rely on their consciences in a world that has no place for kindness or honor… and if they’re ready to sacrifice everything along the way.

###

In a world ruled by supernatural beings whose moral compasses are all but broken, humans struggle to survive in the face of despair, cruelty, and hate. Through it all, there’s hope for more — hope, mercy, and love. Can the balance ever be tipped in their favor?

‘Bought,’ ‘Ravel,’ and ‘Recoil’ feature different characters whose lives begin to come together in ‘Owned’ and ‘Temper.’

1. Bought – Jace & Elias.
2. Ravel – Ashton & Reese.
3. Recoil – Khaz & Noah.
4. Owned – Khaz & Noah, Jace & Elias.
5. Temper – Ashton & Reese, Jace & Elias.
6. Refraction – Khaz & Noah, Ashton & Reese (Jace & Elias)

*Please note that the RISQ world has little place for humanity, and as a result, content in these works may contain graphic scenes of depravity, cruelty, and violence — sexual or otherwise — that could be offensive and potentially triggering to some readers.*

REVIEW:

Temper was full of action and the type of absolute craziness that I really love. Though I enjoyed revisiting Ash and Reece, I was a bit dismayed by the extremely brutal way the book begins with Ash paying the price for his ignorance/independence. However, I think the pain he suffers was necessary way for him to wake up and realize the danger of their situation. Throughout the book there are appearances of the other characters from the previous books in the series. I really liked this since the other books read like stand-alones and this book seemed to be where their worlds collided. There were also some new and extremely intriguing characters as well as a deeper look into Elias’s motives and history. I really look forward to seeing where Elias goes with his plotting, and what kind of messed up torture schemes he has stashed away for later.

Despite all the violence and humiliation the characters have to endure, I really loved that Ash and Reece achieve a victory in the end.  Overall, the book was a win for me, and I’m very curious to know what happens next in this series. I recommend this series to anyone who likes MM Dark Erotica, Dark Fantasy, and MM Romance.

RATING: I liked it!

Review: Coach’s Boy (Settling the Score #4) by Josh Hunter #MM #BDSM

REVIEWED BY LARK


TITLE: Coach’s BoyThe Coach's Boy (Settling the Score #4)

SERIES: Settling the Score #4

AUTHOR: Josh Hunter

PUBLISHER: Pyramid Press

LENGTH: 60 pages

BLURB: Things are getting complicated for high school quarterback Wade Johnson.

Up until last week, everything in life had come easily for the golden boy athlete– football, girls, friends. So what if he was a little rough on Kevin, the gay guy in his class? Isn’t every jock supposed to pick on “queers”?

Now Wade is learning his lesson the hard way. Ever since Kevin got his hands on that video, Wade has been at Kevin’s mercy… and at his service. Wade has had to do things that he swore he never would. But the worst part is that he’s starting to like it. Wade’s gotten a taste for something that he can’t get from this cheerleader girlfriend.

But that may be the least of the straight stud’s problems. Because Kevin’s not the only one who’s found leverage on Wade.

And if Wade thought his coach was hard on him before, he has no idea what’s coming.

(First time BDSM gay erotic romance. All characters 18+)

REVIEW: I ran out of pages before I was ready for this installment of Settling the Score to end. If ever I thought this was just a take on the familiar revenge story, I was proven wrong in Coach’s Boy. Hunter keeps up with the relentless sexual exploitation of Wade, the star quarterback, but as the title and blurb indicate, he’s not only Kev’s toy anymore. Wade and Kev’s story takes a surprising but enjoyable turn as revenge turns into something a little more, but that’s not the only problem Wade has.

One of the many things I like about this series is the way the characters are written. They’re not the wooden characters you might expect from an erotic revenge series centered around blackmail — and if you go in expecting that, be prepared for a shock. There’s a definite story that’s progressing, and it’s very well-written.

Despite the way things are changing, Kev doesn’t let up on Wade — and now we have the coach, who insists on owning Wade’s ass. There’s a distinct dynamic between how Kev and the coach handle Wade, and I’m really enjoying seeing it progress.

And have I mentioned it’s hot? On to the next, because I can’t seem to put these series down.

RATING: I loved it!

Review: Blackmailed! (Settling the Score #2) by Josh Hunter #MM #Erotica

REVIEWED BY LARK

 

TITLE: Blackmailed!Blackmailed! (Settling the Score #2)

SERIES:  Settling the Score #2

AUTHOR:  Josh Hunter

PUBLISHER: Pyramid Press

LENGTH: 22 pages

BLURB: Obedience training for a bully…

Wade Johnson is the golden boy jock at our school, the star quarterback– and a total jerk. He started calling me a “queer” back in ninth grade, and he and his football goons have been hassling me every day since.

But now I’ve got something to keep Wade in line– a video that could destroy his social life and end his football playing days for good.

You’d think Wade would keep that in mind, and try to stay on my good side. Play nice. Keep the other jocks from messing with me. But Wade’s not that smart.

At school, he’s still the same homophobic bully he’s always been. So after school, he has to make it up to me.

It’s almost like that guy wants to be punished.

(First time gay BDSM erotic romance. All characters are 18 and over.)

Goodreads Link

REVIEW: The football players in this story are arrogant and entitled — and according to the school, they have every reason to be. That means that no matter who they choose to pick on, it’s up in the air as to whether or not anyone will actually stop them. Kev has what could be the perfect solution, if only his blackmailed football player would stand up for him. Unfortunately for him, it seems like Wade needs a few reminders as to just who’s in charge.

I really liked the first installment in this series, but I think Part 2: Blackmailed! was even better. Kev starts to get creative with just how he’s going to teach Wade a lesson, which makes it hotter and hotter, and I found myself rereading a few sections. For… research, of course. It was nice to see Wade’s reaction when he finally found something that reached his limits, though his reaction to just how Kev handles it when he balks was fantastic.

I don’t want to give away spoilers, because I enjoyed being surprised by just what happened. Suffice it to say that it gave a nice dose of kink and an idea of just where Kev might go next to keep his football player in line. Well-written and another enjoyable dose of Kev and Wade. I’m already ready to go straight into the next one. (Well. Straight. You know. ;-)) This might be short, but it packs a hell of a punch.

RATING: I loved it!

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

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)

TITLE: OwnedOwned: A Ripples in the Status Quo Story

SERIES: Ripples in the Status Quo #4

AUTHOR: R. Phoenix

PUBLISHER: Self Published

LENGTH: 124 Pages

BLURB:

Elias Ivers was promised a slave recently captured from the Rebellion, and it would have only been a matter of time before the witch broke a mere human. His new pet would have been a beautiful match to his already enslaved werewolf, and the potential information gain was not something he was willing to pass up. However, when Malkhaz takes what should have rightfully been his in a single hasty decision, Elias is determined to make the vampire pay. No one denies an Ivers witch what he wants-especially not someone who’s little more than dirt beneath his expensive shoes.

*Owned contains graphic sexual violence. Please heed this warning.*

###

From light to grey to dark, follow those who test and defy the status quo’s subjugation of humans. In a world where the supernatural reign supreme, only love can set off the ripples that could change this depraved world for the better. But will the cost be too high?

‘Bought,’ ‘Ravel,’ and ‘Recoil’ feature different characters whose lives begin to come together in ‘Owned’ and ‘Temper.’

1. Bought – Jace & Elias.
2. Ravel – Ashton & Reese.
3. Recoil – Khaz & Noah.
4. Owned – Khaz & Noah, Jace & Elias.
5. Temper – Ashton & Reese, Jace & Elias.

*Please note that the RISQ world has little place for humanity, and as a result, content in these works may contain graphic scenes of depravity, cruelty, and violencesexual or otherwise–that could be offensive and potentially triggering to some readers.*

REVIEW:

This book was amazingly and extremely vicious. I loved the last book, but this is definitely my favorite in the series so far. I don’t really know how to review it without giving away too much since the book starts out with a surprise. So, I’ll just say that things get pretty dark for some of the characters in previous books. I imagined it was dark for them already, but their situation just gets worse before it gets better. Elias takes his sadism to an entirely new level in this installment, making an already tricky social situation impossible. I probably couldn’t get more cryptic with this review, but just expect a lot of mind fucks, non-con, and angst. Really, Elias is such an ass, I’m just waiting for him to get a taste of his own medicine. I recommend this book to anyone who likes m/m dark erotica.

Note: This isn’t a standalone. It must be read in order or nothing will make sense.

RATING: Crazy about 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.
