AUTHOR:  Joseph Lance Tonlet

BLURB:

Wes has spent his life looking for that one special guy who will understand and love him—all of him. From his tender vanilla side, to his darker debauched side.

Throughout high school, his successful career in the Marines, and as a BDSM Dom, he’s remained confident his partner is out there waiting to be found.

However, several events shake his normally unflappable self–assurance.

And, even after he finds Grif, will his past catch up with him and possibly drive his soul mate away?

REVIEW:

Hot, haunting, and heartbreaking. Wes’ Denial starts out with Grif and Wes on the rocks, but Wes refuses to give in because he knows Grif is worth fighting for. Then, through a series of flash backs we get a glimpse into Wes’ troubled introduction into the world of BDSM. He first comes to understand some of his dark desires as a teen and then while in Marine Corp boot camp. Though he doesn’t judge himself for it at first, he fears what is inside him and what he’s capable of doing.

Some of these scenes were a bit difficult to read. Though I loved Wes in Grif’s Toy, I did sense a glimpse of something dark and scary in him. There was one point that I almost wondered if Grif was in the hands of a monster. As it turns out, Wes is not so scary, but he definitely has some dark and painful experiences. Seeing this side of Wes made me wonder how the heck he could be truly intimate with Grif while hiding such secrets. At the same time, I was drawn to the erotic scenes in this book. Aside from the steaming hot scenes with Wes and Grif in chocolate, I was fascinated by some of Wes’ past hook ups. For example: Wes’ straight friend in high school who fantasized about a woman making him submit to men was just awesome. Plus, there was also a scene with Wes’ dom trainer, Thomas, that was so hot that it kept playing over and over in my mind. Then, by the end of the book, I was in tears. It was quit unexpected, but I couldn’t ask for a more perfect ending. Overall; amazing, spectacular, and I want more! I recommend this book to anyone who loves M/M dark erotica and M/M romance.

RATING: Loved it!

Review: Owned by R. Phoenix #MM #DarkErotica #LPRTG @RaissaPhoenix

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!

Tags: graphic torture, forced incest, rape

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.

RATING: Cringing but crazy about it!

Both men force him to see his value, despite his size and insecurities.

REVIEW:

Holly crap, this was beautiful! I loved every page. The book began with a glimpse of Grif and Wes together. They are playing a D/s game that involves humiliation and edging, and though it seems like Wes is being sadistic, both of them completely love what they are doing. Wes is in love with Grif’s tears and nothing turns Grif on more than suffering for Wes. The book goes on to show Grif’s college years and his first love, Tate, who’s a straight guy. Grif’s relationship with Tate is really quite fascinating; one that takes cock worship to a whole new level.

Though the book jumped forward and backward in time, I never felt disoriented or lost. It seemed like the natural way to present Grif’s story. Grif’s character was amazing. I loved him so much. I felt his pain and also experienced the beauty of his submission. It has been a while since I’ve read a book with such a vulnerable submissive and such tender D/s scenes. Tate and Wes were also exceptional. Everything about this book was steaming hot. I really cannot wait for book #2. I feel teased and denied just having to wait for it to come out. I recommend this book to anyone who loves Dark Erotica, high quality BDSM, and M/M Romance.

RATING: Absolutely crazy about it!

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.

Alexander LaFon lives a nightmare, but he deals with it. Deals with the fact that his mother abandoned him as an infant, deals with the fact that his father is never home, and deals with the fact that his older brother, Jeremiah, tortures him.

REVIEW:

This book was amazing. I’ve been wanting to read another banned book for quite some time and this one caught my attention. The book starts out with a glimpse into two brother’s childhood, which was riddled with abuse. Mia systematically abused his younger brother Alex, forcing him to endure extreme beatings, sexual abuse, and the threat of death when he killed animals in front of him. By the time Alex was 18, he was completely brainwashed. How I understood Alex’s psychology was that he had the ability to run but didn’t because his brother’s domination was all he knew. Though most of what happens between them is non-consensual and coerced, there are some elements of dubious consent.

I found the psychology in this book to be perfect. I also liked that the author included Mia’s viewpoint. It was a bit shocking to see inside the head of such a sadistic character who got off on the cruel domination and abuse of his little brother. The thing that saddened me the most was that this abuse was escalated unchecked throughout Alex’s childhood because their father worked 80 hour weeks just to make it. Neither child had any supervision. There’s something about this that really makes me sick. Not to say that every unattended child would take advantage of the situation and torture his siblings like Mia did, but it’s still extremely disturbing since fiction always has some kind of basis and connection to what happens in real life. I look forward to reading the next installment in this series. This is the first thing I’ve read from Joseph Lance Tonelet, but I’ll certainly be reading more

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.
