Review

Wicked Winter is a totally amazing anthology with some of the most incredible authors in erotic romance today! I completely enjoyed just about every single story in this set. Some of my favorites are:

The Dominant Wish by Robin L Rotham: 60 Year old Grace has a special visitor on Christmas eve who grants her a special christmas wish. She longs to be with her dominant lover again.

Winter Solstice by Eden Bradley: Destiny Walker ducks out of a rain storm and sees a psychic who tells her she’s about to meet her soul mate. She ends up running into a man in the pouring rain. He might just be her destiny.

Claiming Tiny: Missy is a club girl and Tiny wants her for his own even if it’s not the norm. But a misunderstanding has her past rearing its ugly head, and Tiny and the boys have to run to rescue her before it’s too late.

The rest of the stories were all wonderful too, but these were my favorites of the bunch. It was just a spectacular read!

TIED UP FOR CHRISTMAS by Desiree Holt

Dealing with a messy and humiliating breakup with her Dom, Bree Donovan welcomed the invitation to leave Chicago for a meeting in Texas. An impulsive attendance at a private BDSM gathering wiped all other thoughts from her mind the moment Rafe Morales claimed her as his for the evening…and maybe beyond.

THE DOMINANT WISH by Robin L. Rotham

Once upon a time, Grace Kendrick loved a dominant man. But when Jared McLain asked for more than she was ready to give, she ran away…and paid dearly for thirty years. Now a birthday wish has landed her in the past and back in Jared’s bed, and this time there’s nothing she won’t do for him.

But there’s a catch. The clock is ticking on Grace’s youthful new body and she has only a few hours to explore the erotic delights of her own submission with Jared and his best friend Alec before the clock strikes twelve, returning her to a lonely future. How stupid to wish for just one more night–she should have gone for happily ever after!

Fortunately, fairy godmothers usually have contingency plans…

WINTER SOLSTICE by Eden Bradley

Do soul mates truly exist? A chance reading with a psychic on Winter Solstice eve has Destiny Walker wondering. When she runs into the gorgeous Reece Kellan, their sizzling connection goes deeper than mind and body—but is it really fate, or simply the most intense sensual experience either of them has ever had?

REMEMBER WHEN by SL Carpenter

Sometimes memories of the past hold lessons for the future. Bride-to-be Pam learns hers as she spends some down time with her Grandma—a woman who sure knows how to tell a spicy, funny tale. Lust, laughter and love…Pam will hear reminiscences of all three. And understand why the most important of all is love.

UNDONE TOY by Lila Dubois

Kiara is happy to model for a winter wonderland BDSM photoshoot, until she learns that the man who will be topping her is the only man she’s ever called Master. Ice is cold, but the scenes they perform are scorching, and in the end she’ll have to decide if she can overcome her fear of the past, and risk her heart for a chance at love.

CLAIMING TINY: A Charon MC Novella by Khloe Wren

Badass biker Ryan ‘Tiny’ Nelson has no plans to settle down. But when the feisty Mercedes ‘Missy’ Soto shows up at the Charon MC clubhouse, it only takes one taste before they’re both hooked. When Missy’s past catches up with her and she goes on the run, can Tiny find the woman he’s fallen for in time to give her a Christmas to remember, or is she lost to him forever?

A SECRET CHRISTMAS by LK Shaw

Four couples all want something different for Christmas this year. Penny and Marcus want a baby, Connor and Bridget need to feed their sadist and masochist sides, Miles want to marry Josie, and Phebe is ready to fully submit to Donovan. With sex so hot it’ll melt the winter snow, A Secret Christmas will have you begging for more.

RIO: Christmas in Paradise by Sabrina Sol

When workaholic CFO Chase Simon is forced to take a tropical Christmas vacation, he sure as hell doesn’t expect to enjoy it. But when he finds out that he’ll be spending the next seven days with Rio, a sexy celebrity dancer from his past, his doubts begin to fade.

 

SNOWBOUND AT CHRISTMAS by Christine Ashworth

Trapped with her boss in a remote cabin during a snowstorm, their pent-up passions explode into the hottest sex Kitty has ever had…but Logan has decreed once she leaves the cabin, their professional and personal relationship ends. Now, all Kitty wants for Christmas is Logan’s heart. To get it, she’ll have to do battle with the ghost of his Christmas past.

Christmas Sanctuary by Lauren Hawkeye

About CHRISTMAS SANCTUARY

Emma Kelly needs a Christmas miracle.

Nick Shepherd loves his life in Salt Spring Island, where he sculpts in a studio with the grizzled and talented artist Mike Nagorski. Mike’s estranged daughter, Emma Kelly, arrives in their quiet haven, and though Nick is immediately drawn to her, he tries to resist his feelings. There may be Christmas magic in the air, but Nick knows it can’t last forever…

KG Logo

Christmas Sanctuary is a sweet short written by Lauren Hawkeye with an introduction by James Patterson. This is more of a laid back book for Ms. Patterson, but just as enjoyable to read as her more “spicier” books.

Emma Kelly finds out that her mother has been lying to her all of her life about who her father is. She also realizes that she’s not in love with the fiancee who never has her back. So she does some investigating and ends up on Salt Spring Island off of Vancouver, Canada. When she attempts to meet her dad, she runs into artist Nick Shepherd, and the sparks fly! But can Nick handle a relationship?

This was a much tamer read for Hawkeye, but sweet and emotional makes up for it!

About Lauren Hawkeye

Lauren Hawkeye/ Lauren Jameson never imagined that she’d wind up telling stories for a living… though when she looks back, it’s easy to see that she’s the only one who is surprised. Always “the kid who read all the time”, Lauren made up stories about her favorite characters once she’d finished a book… and once spent an entire year narrating her own life internally. No, really. But where she was just plain odd before publication, now she can at least claim to have an artistic temperament.

Lauren lives in the Rocky Mountains of Alberta, Canada with her husband, toddler, pit bull and idiot cat, though they do not live in an igloo, nor do they drive a dogsled. In her nonexistent spare time Lauren can be found knitting (her husband claims that her snobby yarn collection is exorbitant), reading anything she can get her hands on, or sweating her way through spin class. She loves to hear from her readers!

Do holiday wishes really come true?

For kindergarten teacher, Holly Mary Edwards, she’s banking on a miracle when the man of her dreams returns from duty abroad.

Decorated army doctor, Michael Barnes, is not ready to face the holiday season after his fiancé leaves him for another man. Michael is convinced it’s time to put happiness in a tight little box and ship it back to the North Pole.

He wasn’t expecting Holly. And when the sexy Holly-jolly nymph takes it upon herself to divest him of his Mr. Scrooged attitude, she’ll do anything to bring him into the jingle bell jolly.

Can Holly convince him ‘tis the season for love?

KG Logo

Dr and Lt Col Michael Barnes was dumped by his girlfriend Ella over the Christmas holiday. What’s worse, she’s gone to her old love, his Captain and friend Greyson Blackwood, and now they are married and expecting. So Michael has turned into Scrooge and vows to never love again.

Enter Holly Mary Edwards, who literally crashes into him. A blast from his past, Holly is a clutz who is not only a Christmas fan, but has had a crush on Michael from way back. Holly sets out to bring back Christmas cheer to Michael while trying to get him over his bah-humbug past with his ex and move on, with her.

This is a cutesy story that was a short, enjoyable read. Holly was a bit over the top at times, while her klutziness is cute on occasion, sometimes it reads like a Jerry Lewis prat fall. And maybe a little less on the actual Christmas elf.

What Happens During The Holidays is an anthology of short stories by 10 different authors. While I’ll admit I haven’t read any of the authors in this anthology before, I really enjoyed the stories in this anthology, though I was a bit frustrated with some of them when they ended abrubtly, probably to continue in another book from the author.

Among my favorite stories in this holiday anthology were the following stories, The Meeting by Lucy Gage, Love Square by Jessica Ingaro, Mahalo by Kelli Jean, (my favorite!) and Big Mistake by Elle Jefferson, (although this is one of the books that ended on a cliff of sorts.)

Not all of these stories were necessarily holiday themed, some happened around the holidays. But it was still an enjoyable selection of stories nonetheless.

Description

A chance encounter leads to a passion they can’t forget in Opal Carew’s newest erotic romance!

Stevie has given up on love and just wants a simple life driving her taxi. But her plans are turned upside down when gorgeous billionaire Reid Jacobs steps into the back of her cab.

In Reid’s strong arms, Stevie finds herself falling harder than she ever imagined. But is she ready to trust again? And when his business partner falls for Stevie, will it change everything? One thing is clear: she’s about to take the ride of her life….

ReviewFBknotty1

A Fare To Remember is a standalone erotic romance by Opal Carew. It’s about a cab driver named Stevie. She’s perfectly happy to be driving her cab and then one night she picks up a rich business man. Reid. After coffee with him, things get intimate in a hurry. But Stevie doesn’t do relationships, nor does she do rich guys

She also is attracted to Dylan, his bad boy looking business partner so the three of them have a great time together, but then she decides she needs space. When a terrible accident happens, it tests everything, making their relationship precarious at best.

As always, I think Opal did an incredible job. I actually felt bad for Reid because a good part of the problem was Stevie’s attitude a lot of the time. I did find her to be selfish quite a bit, otherwise, a great story.

Excerpt: A Fare to Remember by Opal Carew

“Have you ever thought of doing something else? My company—”

“Stop right there,” she said, leaning forward, her eyes intense. “I like driving a cab. It’s what I want to do. So don’t judge me or try to help me out of my sad, impoverished life. I’m doing what I love. That’s probably more than you can say.”

He laughed. “Touché. As it turns out, though, I do love what I do. It has become a bit lackluster recently though. I could use something new to liven things up.”

“Is that what this is all about?” she asked, her gaze cautious. “Asking me in for coffee? Talking to me like I’m a date? You want to screw the lady cabbie to add a little excitement to your life?”

“If I was pursuing you, it wouldn’t be so I could screw you.” He leaned in closer. “I would slowly and purposefully seduce you, then take you to heights of ecstasy far surpassing anything you have ever experienced before.”

Rather than looking shocked, her eyebrow quirked up. “That would be more difficult than you think. Hank might have been a jerk, but he was the best lay I’ve ever had.”

He grinned. “I’m sure I could meet the challenge.”

* * *

Stevie couldn’t believe her own words. What the hell was she doing? But this guy, he was so … so … damn, he was so gut-wrenchingly sexy her hormones were boiling over in a wild fit of primal desire.

She reached for her coffee, purposefully brushing her hand against his. Electrifying desire sparked between them. She picked up her cup, making a decision she knew she would probably regret later, but right now, she didn’t care.

“All right.” Then she stood up and turned toward the door.

He followed her to the cab and got in, then she pulled away from the curb in silence.

She passed his hotel and drove another couple of blocks, then pulled down a side street. It was a quiet, out-of-the-way place she would sometimes use to grab a nap if needed during a long shift. She had friends in the neighborhood that looked out for her. She opened the door and got out of the cab. Her handsome passenger followed.

“Aren’t you going to come up to my hotel room?” he asked.

She walked toward him and rested her hand on his warm chest. A surge of adrenaline rushed through her.

“I think here will do fine.”

“You don’t like a comfortable bed?”

She smiled, loving the fact that she was keeping a man off balance for a change. She stroked up his chest, then along his jaw, the light dusting of whiskers sending tingles through her.

“I don’t need a bed.”

Then she cupped his cheeks and kissed him, feeling every bit in control.

Until his arms came around her and she felt herself crushed against his chest. He pulled off her hat and tossed it onto the roof of the cab. Her long blonde hair fell around her shoulders in waves. He drew back and smiled, running his fingers through the soft strands.

“That’s much better.”

Then she felt herself backed against the wall. He leaned against her, his cobalt-blue gaze locked on hers.

“If this is what you want, then that’s fine with me,” he murmured.

His hands glided up and down her body, sending tingles through her. He hadn’t touched any intimate place on her body yet, other than their joining of lips, but she felt he’d taken ownership of her whole being.

Then his hand glided over her chest and he cupped her breast. The feel of his warm hand surrounding her, even through the layers of clothing, started a blaze within her. She could feel her nipples harden with need.

He kneaded her soft mound while his mouth took ownership of hers again. His tongue pushed between her lips and drove inside.

Oh, God, she was feeling out of her depth. She didn’t know what she’d expected, but him being so comfortable and in control in this dark alley wasn’t it.

His hand found its way under her jacket, then inside her shirt. He cupped her breast, just the lace of her bra a barrier between them now.

“You feel good,” he murmured against her ear. Then he rocked his hips forward and she felt a thick bulge against her stomach.

A shock of awareness rippled through her. It hadn’t really hit home what she was about to do until she felt his erection pushing against her. She was about to have sex—in a dark alleyway—with a total stranger.

She felt his fingers unfastening the button of her jeans. She sucked in a breath and grabbed his hands, then pushed them away.

Killer At Christmas by Kera Faire (With Bonus Interview at an Undisclosed Location.)

killer

A killer and a hooker? An unlikely mix, especially at Christmas.

Rio Buchanan, a government operative, and member of the Dispatchers specializes in seduction. He just never thought his target would be his ex-wife. Andie might be a hooker now, but there’s no way she’s a traitor. There’s only one way to get to the truth—kidnap her to keep her safe.

Andie doesn’t know what to think when Rio disrupts her life again, let alone when she wakes up in a prison cell shackled to him, and not in a fun, kinky way. The secrets of his job already ended their marriage. Will they now end her life too?

Imprisoned on the Death Isle, they have to work together to catch a traitor, and discover if they can forge a new life together.

Be Warned: BDSM, spanking

reviewfbknotty1

We travel once again to the Dark Isle. Kera Faire’s series about the government sanctioned dispatchers continues, and this time it’s with Rio. Short for Lothario, a.k.a Don Juan, and a few other aliases. Have you guessed what one of Rio’s methods of information extraction is? Other than poisons and strangulation that is.

He gets an assignment he’s not to thrilled about. His next target is his ex-wife Andie, who he has to drug and ‘seduce’ information out of. He’s also told that she’s a ‘hooker’ and that she’s also teaching classes. Rio finds this impossible to believe, so he goes and fetches her.

Andie left Rio because of all of the secrets. Now, she’s caught right back up in them when she finds herself shackled to Rio. The sparks fly , and misunderstandings make for some pretty amusing moments.

This was a short, holiday Dark Isle by Kera that was totally enjoyable. Of course, being in Scotland, there is Scottish slang in the book, but it only adds to the experience and makes it all the more authentic.

The Interview:

I’m sitting in a bar somewhere in Scotland. I don’t know exactly where, because I was picked up in London, blindfolded, and put on a private plane. After the plane ride and a car ride, I was brought into the bar, where I was placed into the seat and the blindfold removed. I was told to have a drink and someone would be with me shortly.

The bartender gives me the ginger-ale I asked for, and underneath, a note.

“Be outside the back door in 5 minutes”

So, I drink half my soda, nip to the restroom—somewhat weirdly marked Lasses—and by the time I make it to the car, my legs are wobbling. Me thinks there was more than Ginger in my ginger-ale. The last thing I remember is a hood going over my head as I’m placed in the back of a limo.

When I wake up, my hands are tied behind me, my ankles tied together. Well, this could get interesting. I’m in what looks like a sitting room. Then, a tall, well built man walks in the room with black, braided hair.

 

“Rio I presume. I certainly hope the rest of the Dispatchers look like you. (and as kinky, I mumble) So, just how did you come about that name?

 

And…while I’m at it, whatever made you decide to get into your…ahem..specialty?”

 

Rio glares. “Godalmighty not another arsy woman, why oh why do we always get those? Read the book and figure it out.”

 

Someone I hadn’t noticed steps up in front of him… and ohh my flicks my chin with his finger.

 

“Hey Ri, come one, you know why. Kera won’t dare give us pussy-wusses. This one is mine you have Andie.” He turns slightly, and smiles.

 

Oh god, drool and damp panties alert.

 

“Sweet cheeks who are you and why are you here?”

 

Sweet cheeks? Oh lord I’m a gonner.

 

Looking at the newcomer in the room almost has me totally forgetting why I am here. He’s a tall, built, mocha, and hotter than hades MacHottie.  The accent alone has me melting into a puddle of goo. However…Arsy? What in the Hell does he mean by that!

I’ve got the man I’m here to see glaring at me like I was their national insect…that midge I’ve heard about. And then, I’ve got tall, dark, and dare I say Dominant, taking ownership of me like …like…well, a Dom. I was tired, cranky, thirsty, and I had no idea why I was being treated like I was in a bad re-enactment of good cop-bad cop. So I struggled to sit up and glared right back.

 

“Listen, McGarrett and Dano, I was invited here. Got a nice, shiny, invite. Someone sent a pretty plane, then blindfolded me, drugged me, and now here my ass sits. I’m cold, tired, thirsty from what I believe was a double hit of knock-out juice, and If I didn’t know any better, some seasickness. “

 

My little outburst got me a raised eyebrow from Rio, and this odd look from the sexy guy. I’d swear he wanted to spank me or something. Or, It could be I read too many books by Kera, Raven, and that bratty Doris chick. I figure, in for a penny right?

“So…yeah, interview questions. I write a book blog, and when I can, I try to help out. Which makes me the not-arsy, definitely not a pussy-wuss, run of the mill, blogger. That’s all.”

 

Can anyone say Foot-in mouth? Both men just stared. Then the new guy chuckled.

“Oh this one is mine. Definitely mine.”

 

I put on my best shocked face as I looked back and forth between the two of them. I was trying as hard as I could to get the rope off my wrists, but I dare say I was just doing damage.

 

“Yours? What do you mean, yours? And what about my interview.?” I asked MacYummy.

 

He looked at me, considering. It was such a deep look, if you get my meaning, that I squirmed. Then he grinned. Now I know where the expression wicked evil grin came from.

 

“Sweet cheeks, sassing a Dom is not a good way to start. But I’ll cut you some slack as you’re unknown to me and I to you. What do you want to know?”

 

“I um thought I was going to talk to Rio about his and Andie’s story, Killer at Christmas.”

 

 

 

He winked and tugged me closer. “I’m his stand in. He had to see his lady about a small matter of some kitchen utensils and their improper use. So it’s just you and me. Ask away.”

 

I was going to kill Kera for this. Yup, that wine I bought her was going to have a re-enactment of the Boston Tea Party. The fishies would be getting drunk.

 

I was getting a bit woozy with MacHottie being so close. He was hot, Dominant, and that accent. Being tied up wasn’t helping me one bit.

 

“First, how about taking the restraints off? Then, maybe something to drink? As far as the book goes, my first question would be, if Rio’s job is to seduce information out of a target, how does that bode for a marriage? “

 

The look he gave me would fell a bigger person than me at twenty paces.

“Who says it is?”

Oh hell, hardly started and put his back up. That flustered me.

“Well in the book…” I stopped suddenly.

He narrowed his eyes. “Ah yes in the book. Well, sweet cheeks you need to read on. All I will say we do what we have to do. Our ladies accept this or go. There is no middle ground. A Dispatcher is what we are. Not necessarily what our ladies want but if they love us, as we do them, they understand why we do what we do.” he paused and his eyes went dark. A sad sort of dark that I wished I knew how to banish. “And when.” He visibly shook himself. “Ah well, ce la vie. Next question. Then I ask you one.”

 

Obviously, I’d hit upon a nerve, that I’m guessing , involved a woman. One he probably wasn’t over. But I wasn’t going there, I wasn’t TMZ. I scooted myself up and back as much as being tied up allowed.

 

“You know, this was supposed to be with Rio, I understand you all have healthy libidos, but seriously. And speaking of libidinous pursuits, are all of you Dominant here? Is it a hiring qualification by Crabtree?”

 

It was getting awfully warm in here, and it seemed no matter how far I moved away, it wasn’t far enough. What did I agree to?

 

“Water…please?”

 

He put a sports bottle to my lips. “Sip it, no choking.” He waited until I nodded I’d had enough and then stared at me intently. “You my love, agree to whatever I decided unless you cry red. That means it’s over. All of it. You wave bye-bye and disappear off into the sunset.”

“Just like that?”

I swayed and he chuckled. I was beginning to distrust that darned laugh.

“That sweet cheeks is question number three. Which one do you want me to answer?”

Damn him.

 

“Are you all Doms.” I mumbled, sweating from excitement and arousal.

“Are we what?” That one question made me go hot, cold and hot again. How could I forget?

“Are you all Doms, Sir?”

Well now let me see.” He prowled around me like a panther ready to strike. “I can’t answer for everyone, but probably. I am at any rate.” He hunkered down and took my chin between his thumb and forefinger. “My turn now. Does the fact I am dominant make you wet?”

How to answer that without incriminating myself. And did it really matter?

 

Damn it! Heads were rolling when…if I got out of this kerfluffle. ‘It’s just a simple interview’ she said. ‘Think of it as a vacation.’ She said. ‘Nothing will happen you don’t agree..’ ohhh, I’m gonna have some words.

 

He was right in my face, and I tried to look away, but he had me gripped too firmly. Was that a whiny little moan that just came out of my mouth? “Answer me Sweet Cheeks, last warning”

 

“If I say yes, does that get me three more questions…Sir?

“No it gets you a striped ass, if you’re not careful. I think we need to terminate this here and now. When we discover who and what we might be, say in a month or three, we could reconvene for more. “Meanwhile,” he winked. “Rio and Andie are happy,Dark Isle is safe and us? Well we have some exploring to do.”

To Be Continued……

The Christmas Letter by April Zyon

christmasletter

Will a Christmas letter be enough to restore his faith in love?

Dante had been serving his country faithfully as one of the elite SEALs when he got word of his baby sister’s death. To say he had been devastated would have been an understatement. He was taken out of commission, away from the only job he ever knew, to take care of the niece he only saw when he was on leave. He toyed with the idea of allowing them to put her with a foster family—for about two minutes.

Noelle Henry spat out form letters for children who wrote to Santa Claus each holiday season. When she read a letter written in crayon from a six-year-old named Molly Davidson she knew that she couldn’t simply send the child the standard letter, especially since she had known the child’s late mother. Instead, Noelle wrote a personalized letter for the little girl, something that would likely get her fired. She never anticipated what would develop between her and Molly’s new guardian, Dante

The Christmas Letter is the first book in a new series by April Zyon called Davidson Center. And despite the fact it’s a holiday short, it’s a full and brilliant story that has huge things going for it.

The story starts with loss, and our hero Dante has to come home from military deployment to take over the care of his niece. He does so without complaint and with a whole lot of love.

Noelle is in charge of answering the letters that children send to Santa. When she comes across Molly’s, she realizes she knows her. She decides to send her a hand written response.

After watching Dante jog, Noelle runs into him. Their chemistry is electric. But when Christmas comes around, Dante learns a lesson in what believing is all about.

This was such a wonderful story of loss, love, hot sex, and the meaning of family. Done so, so, right as April does so well! Can’t wait to read the next book in the series!

This book gets 5 Merry Old Orgasms

When she meets a mother and child, who were rescued by shifters from a violent cult, Blair knows she has found the way to share her joy, and resolves to give them a nice Christmas to make up for all the horrors they’ve endured. 

But, between building parade floats and baking Christmas treats, can Cole and Blair make time to keep their romance alive?

Be Warned: spanking, bondage, sex toys

reviewfbknotty1

Next up is another amazing Evernight author. (There seems to be a pattern going for me here…) Sara Anderson. To be fair, I’ve been a HUGE fan since her Sci-Fi series. (Yup, I’ll be reviewing them here too!) But I’m a massive fan of this shifter series.

In this holiday short, we revisit Cole and Blair. (Mmmm Cole.) Another point? These ladies got me into shifters as well, because I’d certainly love one of THESE shifters. But I digress… Blair decides that she’s going to spread the Christmas spirit to others, in particular, Beth. Beth is the abused, pregnant, mother of a toddler who was rescued from the same cult as Rebecca. (The Forgotten)

Of course, we get to see the smoking hot BDSM scenes between Cole and Blair. (so yummy). It’s a short holiday read, but so satisfying. And it seems like a wonderful set up for the next book.

This book gets 5 Naughty Orgasms

Excerpt:

Cole turned and looked at Blair, and once again, it struck him how much he loved this woman. She had a baby in each arm and swayed as she sang along with “Baby, It’s Cold Outside”.

Aiden and Alex’s eyes were drifting closed, and it wouldn’t be long before they both drifted off to sleep. Cole came up behind her and wrapped his arms around her to sway with the music. Her head fell back against his chest as they moved slowly in a dance around the living room.

This was what Cole always felt was a perfect evening. Holding his mate and his cubs together as they danced around the living room. They didn’t need to talk to feel the connection to one another, just sway to the old Christmas song.

Once Aiden and Alex were as limp as overcooked noodles, Cole guided Blair to the nursery and he helped to lay them down. They snuggled them down into their crib, making sure the boys cuddled. The twin bond was strong between them, and they slept better when they touched.

Pulling the door closed ‘til only a crack was open for a bit of light, Cole then led Blair to their bedroom next to the nursery. She loved the view of his ass in those tight jeans of his. Cole was the definition of sexy to her.

****

Blair’s body began to heat up as Cole gripped the bottom of her little black sweater and pulled it up and over her head. “Baby, I told you that outfit was so sexy on you, but I think it looks so much better on the floor.”

Blair felt the rush of cold air as her sweater hit the floor. She grinned up at him. “You look just as good with your clothes joining mine.”

Cole’s heated gaze moved slowly up and down her body that was only in a bra and panties, and then he glanced at her clothing on the floor. “Definitely better on the floor.”

Blair shook her head as Cole picked her up and carried her to the floor in front of the fire.

“Give me just a second,” he said as he stood her on her feet. He grabbed a soft blanket and laid it in front of the fireplace, then pulled Blair over. “Lie down.”

Blair dropped down onto the blanket and let Cole guide her to her back. Cole quickly undid his belt, slid his jeans down his legs, and kicked them off. His shirt soon followed, and he dropped to his knees.

Blair only had a moment to wonder what he was going to do.

It’s Med who sees the truth of their feelings and he plots out a plan to get them back together. Will he succeed so they can be with Haley for Christmas?

reviewfbknotty1

First, a big shout out to cover artist, Jay Aheer. She comes up with some absolutely amazing covers!

Two Doms at Christmas is a holiday read from the immensely talented Kat Barrett. I’ve been reading her books for quite a long while, and I’ve always enjoyed them. This book is no different.

Haley Joy is a writer who manages to get caught saying some pretty kinky things into her phone.To make things worse, she’s caught by Austin McKenzie. He sees she has no wedding ring on and decides to strike up a conversation with her. After they both figure out that they have similar things in common, they decide to spend more time together.

She eventually finds out that not only is Austin a Dom, but he shares with his best friend Med. But when an attacker breaks into his home and hurts Haley’s dog, the dog later has a problem they never saw coming.

An overreaction and misunderstandings could be just the thing to break them up. For good.

This was a wonderful book, with lots of lovely D/s sex. The Doms have different kinks, including pony play and paddling, which Haley acommidates equally. I will say I was really disappointed in Austin’s reaction to the episode with the dog. I wasn’t thrilled with how he behaved towards Haley, otherwise, I just loved it!

4 Jolly Orgasms!
