Review: Risk Aware by Amelia C. Gormley #MM #BDSM #NewRelease

TITLE: Risk AwareRisk Aware

AUTHOR:  Amelia C. Gormley

PUBLISHER: Riptide Publishing

LENGTH: 323 Pages

BLURB:

Tattoo artist Geoff Gilchrest is convinced his life is some sort of cosmic joke. Why else would a hemophiliac also be a masochist? He’s given himself more than one elbow bleed since puberty just doing what guys do when alone and bored, so forget about whips and chains. How many partners would contemplate playing with someone even a mild flogging could kill?

Gallery owner Robin Brady knows he can deliver what Geoff needs: to be taken to the edge of danger but never beyond. But Robin came to Saugatuck to get away from the leather scene and heal from a betrayal by his former sub, so he’s not sure he should get involved with Geoff. His ambivalence isn’t helped by the fact that Geoff’s unwillingness to communicate about his well-being hits Robin in some very raw places.

Geoff’s hemophilia isn’t the obstacle he thinks it is. Instead, a lack of trust—on both their parts—is what could end them before they have a chance to begin.

Goodreads Link

REVIEW:

This was the first book I’ve read by Amelia C. Gormley, and I wasn’t at all disappointed. Risk Aware begins when the hemophiliac, Geoff, who is also a masochist is at a leather club/resort dreaming of all the things he wants a dom to do to him. He knows all he can do is dream since any strike to his body will likely start internal bleeding that wouldn’t stop and may lead to his death. However, Geoff grew up with his mother treating him like a china doll, and he wishes he could just let go and have the pain he craves. When Geoff meets Robin, his dreams appear to be coming true. He can trust Robin to touch him in the right ways, being just rough enough to alight his fantasies without putting him in danger of starting a bleed.

I have to admit that I approached this book with caution. I’m not a huge fan of needles and the sight of blood used to make me faint. So, reading a book about a masochistic hemophiliac had me cringing before I even read the first page. Despite my caution and reservations, I read this novel without crawling out of my skin. There were some scenes with needle play that I tried not to visualize too much, but other than that I was able to enjoy this book with a minimal amount of cringing. Though Geoff and Robin had to tone down what they were able to do in the bedroom, the scenes were all very hot. There was always the fear of Geoff braking somehow, and even though they had to be extremely careful, they did get a little rough at times which had me on edge. Overall, this novel was romantic, hot, and laced with plenty of danger. I can’t say I’ve read a BDSM book before where the stakes were so high and each scene could be a matter of life or death. I recommend Risk Aware to anyone who enjoys BDSM, medical play, and m/m romance.

RATING: I loved it!

BLURB:

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.

RATING: I loved it!

Review: Bend Over (Bend Over #1) by Brina Brady #BDSM #MM

TITLE:  Bend Over Bend Over (Bend Over Series #1)

SERIES:   Bend Over #1

AUTHOR:   Brina Brady

PUBLISHER:   Self-Published

LENGTH:     350 Pages

BLURB:

Runaway 18-year-old Shane O’Rourke is living under the Huntington Beach Pier.
He carries many secrets from his past. Shane wasn’t allowed to explore his sexuality when he lived home with his father, The Reverend. His submissive nature and desires had to remain fantasies.

Shane meets a dark stranger on the beach. Julien Callier is a Dom from Martinique and is sixteen years older than Shane. Bad boy Shane wants to win the heart of Julien Callier and become his sub. But does he really understand what Julien expects from his boy?

Julien’s heart goes out to this gorgeous boy and he takes him under his wing, grooming him to be his sub. Julien is determined to let Shane experience the good life, even financing his education, but he’s challenged at every turn by Shane’s rebellious nature.

When Shane’s defiant behavior threatens to come between them for good, Julien has to act fast to teach Shane the meaning of real submission.

Can Julien tame the bad boy? Can Shane give up his old ways of stealing, lying, and using drugs? The playroom is open.

Goodreads Link 

REVIEW: 

Fantastic read! Bend Over starts out with the eighteen-year-old, Shane, who has run away from home to escape his intolerant reverend father. Shane isn’t entirely sure about his sexuality, but when he has a sexual encounter in a beach shower with an older French speaking man, Shane’s only thought is that he wants that guy again. Although he doesn’t’ know it at first, Shane has made an impression on the man. Julien is the owner of a BDSM club and after his encounter with Shane, he has to have him as his boy. He makes all the arrangements to assure Shane ends up in his hands.

This book was extremely sexy. I loved how submissive Shane is and how at the same time he’s bratty and rebellious. Shane was missing a loving father figure in his life and Julien quickly fills that role. Since Shane messes up a lot, he earns a lot of punishment, but his punishments are always sexy and far from being harsh. Shane loves being spanked, which makes his discipline even hotter. Bend Over has a happy ending, and the only thing I’m wondering is if Julien will ever get his boy to behave. I recommend this book to anyone who loves M/M BDSM.

Ex-Navy SEAL Brendan O’Farrihy enrolls in kendo classes to investigate a Honolulu dojo acting as a front for a yakuza syndicate. Or at least that’s what Brendan’s client, Senator Harris, believes. Through his kendo instructor, the cocky, short-fused, gorgeous Kinosuke Yonekawa, Brendan learns the criminals who are supposedly using the senator’s son, Kenneth, to expand their activities into the US, seem to have severed any yakuza connections. The jaded, soul-scarred former soldier is captivated by the loyalty these gangsters show each other and the way they protect Ken like a tight military unit. Brendan wonders why the senator lied to him, and what the yakuza are shielding Ken from.

When Ken disappears, Brendan suspects foul play and decides to help the man he is falling for, Kinosuke, and his friends, find Ken. But when Kinosuke discovers Brendan has been on the senator’s payroll, all bets are off.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

She practiced fencing till her knees started complaining, took archery till her elbow almost fell off, and then, wisely, switched to the less martial of the martial arts, tai chi.

 

Review: Spanked in the Woodshed (Bend Over #3) by Brina Brady #BDSM #MM @BrinaBrady

TITLE:  Spanked in the WoodshedSpanked In The Woodshed (Bend Over Series #3)

SERIES:   Bend Over #3

AUTHOR:   Brina Brady

PUBLISHER:   Self-Published

LENGTH:     346 Pages

BLURB:

Shane is in trouble with his Dom again.

He can’t help making matters worse for himself. He wants to please Julien, make him happy, and be the perfect sub for him.

His Dom gives him everything he needs. He helps him learn to deal with his problems the right way, without leaning on drugs. Julien pays his college tuition and lets him work at one of his clubs to be independent and earn his own money.

No matter how hard Shane tries, something or someone always seems to slow their progress. Often, Shane gets in his own way, lying and breaking rules. This time, there are a couple of people trying to ruin their relationship.

Julien is so patient with Shane because he loves him and wants to be the safe place Shane can always come home to. Unfortunately, misunderstandings, lies, and shortcomings on both of their parts threaten to take away the one thing Shane and Julien each need more than anything else: each other.

This story is steamy hot, but it isn’t just a story of BDSM. It is a story of love with a well-deserved HEA end to the series.

Goodreads Link 

REVIEW:

Such a hot and romantic way to end the series! Spanked in the Woodshed begins at a point when Shane gets caught for skipping his classes. Shane is being followed by a scary looking guy at school, but he’s afraid to tell Julien about it. To complicate matters, Julien’s attempt to help a sub who’s in a bad position leads to Shane having doubts about where things stand between him and Julien. Shane’s subsequent actions and Julien’s fear of losing Shane, put Julien in a bad place. He’s never had feelings for any sub like he has for Shane, and he can’t stand the thought of anyone touching him. Despite the bumps in their path, their relationship remains strong while they work to head off the danger they face from Shane’s stalkers.

This book was extremely hot! There’s a lot of sex as well as BDSM scenes, but Shane and Julien never lose their flame. Out of all three books, I think I liked this one the best. Julien is still Shane’s dom, but he’s not as strict and their roll playing is extremely sweet. Julien also has a sense of vulnerability that he didn’t have in the previous books, which seemed to make their relationship even more romantic. I especially loved the happy ending. I recommend this book to anyone who loves BDSM, m/m erotica, dark erotica, and m/m romance.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

My life is a flurry of writing, art and creativity. You can usually find me reading a book, scribbling notes in a notebook for future creations, typing on a laptop with music blaring in my ears or buried in my basement watching documentaries and sitting behind a sewing machine.

I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember and have boxes of old notebooks in horrible handwriting to prove it. Only recently have I stumbled back into writing and finishing my ideas.

Seeking the Storyteller is the first novel I’ve published; with my partner in crime and life, Briana Lawrence. I also write horror, fantasy, supernatural and occasionally romance pieces which I am currently shopping around through contests and publishers.

(My opinions and views are my own – and may not necessarily represent companies or publishers I work for.)
