Eva Charles-Decadent

Before we move on to the book part of today’s blog, I do just want to gush a little over the fact that I got my car today. The nice transport man from Carvana stopped his car transporter at the top of my tiny country road, and then drove it down to my house. And then right past my house. But, he came back, and I remember how to drive a stick shift, even after 18 years.

But, enough of that, let’s talk books. Decadent is the fourth and probably last of the Devil’s Due books by Eva Charles. They are dark romances, heavy on the thriller/suspense, and loads of kink. They do deal with a lot of politics, especially the firsts 2 books, but that’s the world they are set in, so there’s that. There is less politics in this one and what is there is more foreign than domestic. It could be read as a standalone, since the Gray and Delilah’s story is complete in and of itself, well mostly, but there are spoilers for the first 3 books. Also, if you read the first books, you will have a better grasp on who everyone is and how they all fit together.

Delilah is a former CIA operative. She was trained to act undercover, but then her cover got blown in a big way, in front of a Congressional hearing kind of big. So, now she works for Smith, as part of his security firm. She used to work undercover at Wildflower, which is Gray’s club/sex club, but that got blown too. But she and Gray have been dancing around each other for a while now. But nothing has really co me of it. Until, that is, the day that Gray catches her doing something she probably shouldn’ta ought’a done, and extorts her to join a mission that he has. She’s the perfect person for it, so Gray wants her to do it. And, well, he just wants her in general.

Gray lives with a lot of regrets and a lot of guilt. He also has a whole lot of secrets. One of those secrets is that he works for the FBI in a super sekrit department, doing super sekrit things. For that department, he has a mission that is going to be dangerous, and he needs a beautiful woman who can be his arm candy but who can also hold her own. So, he of course thinks of Delilah. He does what he has to so that he can get her on his team, even though there were other ways that he could’ve gone about it, but eventually, she agrees to help him on his mission.

Gray is really confusing to me throughout the first parts of the book. He comes off as an asshole, with bits of compassion and caring coming through. Or, maybe it’s the other way around. I’m not even sure that Gray could tell on his own. Like I said, confusing. I think that he’s a good man, even when he has done some bad things, and he really has done some not good things. But, he does them from a place of honor and a place where he’s a good man who has to do things that he might not like. If that makes sense. It does to me. He really had to hide his emotions, and I think that he has hidden them from himself at times. It takes him some time to figure that out, I think.

I really like Delilah. I think that she has come really far from where she started out. But, I think that some of that has dug into her brain and doesn’t want to let go. Let’s just say that her mother has a lot to answer for. And so does her dead husband. But Delilah works really hard to stand on her own two feet. She’s strong, a fighter, talented, and smart. And she’s an asset to any team that she’s on, which is a part of why Gray wants her on his team. I think, mostly, that’s a convenient excuse for Gray, really. I think that he came up with this justification to get to her in a way that seemed to give him some emotional distance from the fact that he really just wants her as a woman. If she is part of his team, then they don’t have a real relationship, and he’s safe from her. Like I said, convenient excuse.

That prince. Ugh. He’s just scummy.

OK, that’s all for this one. Go check it out! Happy reading!

Claire Marta-The Dove and The Darkness

This is the 2nd Claire Marta book of this week, as promised. The Dove and the Darkness is the 5th book in her Ceasefire series, and it covers Cassandra’s story. You have to read these in order, you can’t just jump into a book in the middle of the series and get it. There’s a whole lot going on, and you need the background to understand why Cassandra did the things that she did and why she has ended up where she is.

For those who aren’t familiar with Ceasefire, it’s a lot to try to explain. It’s a PNR. It primarily deals with Hell and various Hell and underworld dimensions. Lucifer is a main character in the first books, and is a supporting character in all the other books, including this one. So, Cassandra is an Oracle, who was raised in Hell from the time she was 6, as Lucifer’s foster daughter and her 1/2 sister is Mavi, who is Lucifer’s consort. It’s complicated.

Cassandra made some choices based on some information she got from her visions, and, well, it didn’t necessarily go well for her. When she wakes up somewhere she isn’t familiar with, she starts to worry. That’s when she finds out that she’s been taken from where she was and is now in a prison, waiting to be trained so that she can be given to the person who has bought her. And her training isn’t going to be how to sit and embroider a pretty picture. Nope, she’s going to learn to do all the sexual things out there, and if she doesn’t do it right, bad things are going to happen.

That’s where Master Soren comes into play. He’s there to train Cassandra. He’s all very Dom-ly. He is nominally under the Warden, but you get the idea that there is a lot more going on there than we are seeing. The Warden, who is a nasty ass bitch, really likes him, because he will totally Top her when she wants him to. Soren is basically in charge of the training, which is what brings Cassandra to his attention. He’s been doing this for a very long time, so he knows what he’s doing. That includes isolating her in a room by herself and giving her no other contact for days, other than sliding food in under a grate. When he comes to get her again, she’s so grateful to see him, because she gets to see someone. When Cassandra is good, she gets orgasms. When she’s bad, she gets punished. Soren really enjoys it. Cassandra definitely enjoys it, at least parts of it. There are other things that she likes about the time she spends with him.

I like Cassandra. I think that she is a lot stronger than anyone really gives her credit for. I mean, she does have all these visions, and if she’s not careful, they do overwhelm her. I mean, they do get overwhelming enough that she has hurt herself to help control everything, but she’s still dealt with these things all her life. Being raised by a demon and Lucifer, she has been really protected from a lot, but that doesn’t mean that she hasn’t had terrible things happen to her anyway. And she survived that. In this case, even as Soren is breaking her down and she is getting in deeper with him, she is still trying to be herself, and she is still fighting. I have a lot of respect for that, and I think that it’s going to do her a lot of good in the future.

Interestingly enough, I feel like I don’t have as good a grasp on Soren as I could. I think I like what we’ve seen of him, but there’s just a lot hidden when it comes to him. Even being in his head at times doesn’t necessarily give us a lot to him. But, like I said, I think that I like what we know about him. I can’t wait for the next book, to see more about him.

Before you read this, remember that this stuff may be spoilers.

It took me an embarrassingly long time to realize who Soren is, where they are, and who his brother is. I wanted to dope slap myself when I got there, because duh.

OK, that’s all for this one. Go check it out! Happy reading!

 

Maren Smith: Ray

Ray is the third book in the Dad Bod Doms, and is Maren’s offering to the series. We got a hint of his story in the end of Raisa’s Henry.

Ray decided that part of his problem was that his dad bod was a little too dad and not quite enough bod. So, he’s going to go home and start working out so that he can get back into the same shape he was in when he and his wife Ally got married. He had been in the Army, and had really stopped running the day after his discharge, but he’s bound and dtermined to start it back up, with a 10 mile run. And seriously, who goes straight from not jogging to a 10 mile run immediately? Then again, I’ve never run 10 continuous miles in my entire life, so there’s that. And, well, Ray does get some inspiration while he’s out on his jog, so that probably helped.

Meanwhile, his lovely wife Ally wakes up to get her day started, and notices that he’s not in bed, but that could just be that he’s already awake, it happens sometimes. But when she gets down to the kitchen, she notices that the coffee hasn’t been started. And that’s weird. As Ally continues her morning, she’s worried about her husband, but then he comes into the house, huffing and puffing, red in the face, looking like he died 3 days ago, and told her he was jogging. Ally is concerned about why he would be jogging, and running through a series of ideas, she decides that he’s having an affair.

I think that Ray and Ally aren’t are distant as other couples are, but there is some distance there. Part of it is just the fact that being parents sometimes makes it really hard to have time to talk about anything outside of the kid and having 3 young kids makes it really hard to have the time to do just about anything. On top of that, there is a lot of pressure put on women to be the perfect wife and mother, and I think that Ally has a huge dose of that going on. I really relate to Ally because she feels all that pressure and stress and her brain goes to the anxiety place, and that’s where my brain goes too.

I think that Ray is a really good man that really wants to do the best for his wife and family. He works hard at his job, and he loves his family. I think that he misreads Ally’s concerns, and he tries to fix the things as he sees them, which is really all he can do. When Ally does what she does, he really feels blindsided. They both thought that they were talking to each other, but they were really not, which is why Ally is just convinced he’s having an affair.

OK, that’s all for this one. Go check it out! Happy reading!

Raisa Greywood-Henry

Once upon a time, Golden Angel had an idea. What about writing about Dad Bod Doms? Well, she ran with it and talked to Raisa Greywood, Maren Smith, and Shane Starett, and they all joined in with her. If you go look at Golden’s book, you’ll see what her husband looks like, since he’s the cover model. Anyway, Henry is Raisa’s addition to the series, and the 2nd book.

Here’s the premise of the books. Logan, Henry, Ray, and Faris are old friends. They are all married and in D/s relationships of some sort. On their annual camping trip, the guys all get to talking, and it turns out that they are all having issues in their marriage and in their life. They make a pact to turn things around, and set up a challenge.

So, let’s talk about Henry and his lovely wife, Natalie. They have been married for almost 20 years, of which about 15 were good. But, in the last few years, things have gotten bad and worse. They were having issues with fertility, and then, as happens with a lot of marriages, they just started drifting apart. They didn’t have sex, they didn’t talk, in fact, they barely even saw each other. Henry was doing a job that he hated, and as part of it made him ignore Natalie too. On his way home from the camping trip, he decided that he would drive straight through and go home instead of stopping overnight somewhere. He got home to find Natalie asleep, so he made love to his wife, because he wants to make everything better.

Meanwhile, Natalie waited until Henry fell asleep, and she left the house. She not only left the house, she left, period. You see, she’s been planning on leaving him for the last few months, and she just wanted one more night in her bed before she left. As part of her leaving Henry, she managed to get a gallery showing for her art. I have to say, I love the gallery owner and her new friends. Everyone needs a queen in their life, and a lot of queens is even better. She’s gearing up for her show when Henry texts her, and she tells him to look at the note she left.

So, we’re going to leave it with Henry having read Natalie’s note that she’s leaving him, and listing out some of the reasons WHY she’s leaving him, and with Natalie getting ready to have a gallery show of her kinky art.

I have to admit that I don’t like Henry for most of the first part of the book. I feel like he knows that there’s a problem but he doesn’t necessarily part of the problem, or maybe not a large part of the problem. He’s really blind and he misses a lot of what’s going on in his world with Natalie, so when he reads the note she left him, he’s kind of blindsided. He does kinda realise that yeah, maybe some of what she said is real, but I think that he’s still really putting a lot of what happened on her versus on both of them. And while I did start to like him a lot more as the book went on, there were times that I still really didn’t like him.

I think that Natalie is incredibly strong and brave. She’s definitely one of those subs who shows that being submissive doesn’t mean weak. She really isn’t weak at all. She has had to put herself back together and recreate herself, and she managed to not only survive, but she thrived. I really liked her a lot. There was one point where I could’ve had an issue with her, but I didn’t, because it makes sense in the story and in their journey.

I love the evidence Henry presents. I laughed uproariously at that one.

OK, that’s all for today. Go check this one and all of the other Dad Bod Doms books, as they come. Happy reading!

Livia Grant-Securing It All

Securing It All is the second book in Livia’s re-released Punishment Pit series. It’s the continuing story of Markus and Brianna, and Lukus and Tiffany. Although, Lukus and Tiffany aren’t in an relationship as of yet, but I’m pretty that it’s going to be happening in the 3rd book. As a warning, this one takes place immediately after the first book, and if you haven’t read it, you might want to skip this review because there are definitely spoilers.

So, Brianna has gone through her first night of punishment, Lukus is feeling kinda like a jerk, because he didn’t know everything, and while he’s willing to punish her, he really knows that it’s not his job, and that there’s more to the story. He decides that he needs to go see Markus and talk to him, especially since he wants to fuck Brianna so much. Considering they are punishing her because of her infidelity, that would be way ironic. And so, off goes Lukus to confunt Markus.

Markus is home, dunk as a skunk, asleep in a trashed house. Lukus talks to him about what Brianna has said, and about his actions. They come up with a better plan. While he’s there, Tiffany shows up, concerned about Brianna, and she gets into it with Markus and Lukus, then follows Lukus.

I am still not quite on the Markus Like Wagon. I’m very not impressed by him at the moment. His actions just make me angry. I think he needs to Dom up and do what should be done, instead of letting other people take over his Dom-type duties. It doesn’t help that he and Brianna don’t have a clear line of communication in between them. Anyway, I’m really hoping that Livia is able to redeem him. He really needs it, at least for me he does.

I do like Brianna. I got to liking her more from the first part of this book to the end. I think that there is a lot of growth in her over the book, let alone over the span of the first 2 books. I think that she has really taken responsibility for her actions. While there are some extenuating circumstances as to why she did what she did, she isn’t using them as an excuse for anything. I respect her for that, and I respect her for owning up to them and doing the time.

Lukus is definitely becoming a well-rounded character. We get to see a lot more of him in this one, and we get a good look in his head, so we really get to know him more. I think that he’s a good man who really cares for his friend, and he wants to help him. I think he really needs to give Markus a serious kick in the ass. Maybe he could give Markus 12 of the best with his cane? I kinda think that maybe Markus could use it. There was one spot where I wish that Lukus had stepped in more, but…

We get to see more about Tiffany here too. She’s very loyal. I’m looking forward to learning more about her.

No spoilers today. Go check it out! Happy reading!

Livia Grant-Wanting It All

Livia is putting her Punishment Series back out into print, and we are starting with Wanting It All. Now, as you read parts of my review, you might think that it sounds like I didn’t like this book. On the contrary, I did. But, I came really close to DNFing this one, for a lot of reasons. However, I pushed through it and am so glad that I did, because this book was worth it. It was intense and left me with a lot of interesting feelings. We’ll get more into that in a bit. 

So, we start with Brianna and Markus. They are a loving couple who have been married for a few years now. They are both hiding secrets from each other, oddly enough their secrets are nearly identical. She wishes he was a little rougher, he wishes she were a little more submissive. 

Brianna has a former boyfriend, named Jake, who liked to tell everyone that he was a Dom, but he was really just an abusive dickhole. But when she got together with Markus, she was still physically and mentally healing from Jake’s abuse, and she told Markus that she just wanted sweet and soft loving. And Markus had no problem with that. He wanted to make sure that Brianna was taken care of. But…

Anyway, Markus, a super high powered attorney, is about to go to court to help his friend Lukus, who owns a BDSM club. He’s being sued by two subs who went to the club, but Markus has it handled. Until things happen. 

Brianna is off to the salon that she owns, but then Jake. And things happen. 

So, OK, here’s why this almost became a DNF. I really, really, really don’t like Brianna OR Markus. OK, maybe only one really, but my point stands. At the beginning, I really don’t like Brianna much at all. It’s better at the end, I like her better, but I’m still not all the way on the like train. I started out liking Markus a little more than I did, but by the end, yeah, I’m really pissed off at him. 

In the past, I’ve talked about how I really need to have some kind of connection to at least one of the main characters. I don’t necessarily have to like them, I just have to feel something for them, and I definitely feel something for both Brianna and Markus. Luckily, we also have Tiffany, Brianna’s friend and co-worker, and Lukus. I’m not necessarily a Lukus fan at the moment, but I at least like Tiffany. So, there’s that. 

I completely understand the reasons that each person does what they do. I don’t like their actions, and I think that Brianna and Markus both had much better choices they could’ve made. I think, at the very base of everything, that if they were honest with each other, that things would’ve been better, but it would’ve been a much shorter series. 

I think that Markus should’ve waited and talked to Brianna to find out why she made the choices that she did. I think that if/when he finds out everything, he’s going to be so fucking angry at himself that it will destroy him. Of course, I think that he really deserves that right now. I hope he just eats his heart out and it chokes him. Maybe the second book will change my mind on him. Heaven knows that there is a lot of space for a redemption arc for him, and Livia can definitely write a good redemption arc, so, we’ll see. 

Now, Brianna. Hmm… Again, she really should’ve talked to Markus about a lot of things. I can’t judge her. No, wait, I can judge her, in fact, I am, but I can’t tell you what I would do in her place. I’d like to say what I would do, just for my own sake, but we never know until we are in the middle of the situation, and if it weren’t just me? Well. 

We don’t get a whole lot of Tiffany in this one, but I like what we’ve seen of her. 

And so we come to Lukus. Again, I understand his initial feelings as well as everything that comes from there. I think that I like him, but we really don’t quite get enough of his head for me to completely decide my feelings. 

I really, really, really can’t wait for the upcoming book. 

OK, no spoilers here. Go check it out! Happy reading!

Tabitha Black-Her Vampire Addiction

It’s Tabitha’s turn to join the world of the Midnight Doms with Her Vampire Addiction. As you may have guessed by Tabitha’s title, this is a vampire book with a kinkeriffic twist, you know, a Midnight kind of Dom. There are several books that go into this world, which is a spinoff from Lee Savino and Renee Rose’s shifter books. So, let’s talk about Tabby’s book, shall we?

We have Sabina, who has just broken up with a douchebag, and now she’s waiting in line to go into Club Toxic. Her ex told her to stay away from it, but she doesn’t have to listen to him, and she wants to go, so go she will. Plus, she heard that there might be a kink club in the basement, and as a masochist, she needs some playtime. So, as she’s standing there in line, just waiting and waiting and waiting, some guy invites her to go in with him. He introduces himself as Ethan, buys her a drink, and suddenly invites her to go downstairs with him. She does, and things start happening, things that she doesn’t want. She hollers for help, and lo, help appears.

Maximus is a 1600 year old vampire. He comes by his Roman name legitimately. He was a centurion in Rome back in the day. Now he works at Club Toxic as a DM and does what Lucius and Selene, the king and his queen, tell him to do. When he hears a woman screaming for help, he rushes over to the private booth and finds another vampire who has a woman trapped in the booth and appears to have her under his spell, literally. Maximus makes Ethan leave and leave her alone, and he takes over the care of Sabina.

Sabina is prickly, and she is very much independent. She wants to handle everything on her own, and she probably can manage to do it too, most of the time. She doesn’t want help, she just wants it to be done. I don’t blame her, and in fact, I can probably really relate to that. I, like her, had to really take care of my sibs, and I ended up not wanting to ask for any kind of help or easily take any help that is offered, so I totally get Sabina acting like that. I totally relate. I think that she could’ve bent a little on that because, well, reasons.

I like Maximus. I think that he is a very good man, for a vampire, lol. I think that he has a code of honor that he sticks with and it makes him happy. Or at least, sort of happy. Content-ish, at any rate. I think that he mostly thinks he’s happy, and probably he is, but he has really kind of cut part of himself out, which would make it really hard to be completely happy, I think.

I understand Sabina’s freakout.

OK, that’s all for today. GO check it out! Happy reading!

EJ Frost-Daddy PI

EJ has a new book out, called Daddy PI. It’s obviously a DD/lg book, but that’s not all there is to it. There’s a deeper story that’s going on together with the romance part.

So, Logan is a PI. He’s been hired by a cruise line that runs BDSM speciality cruises. One of their former passengers died the evening after he got home from his cruise. The insurance company and cruise line want him to find out what’s happened, especially since there are other passengers who were on that trip who are now ill. The guy’s widow is sure that he didn’t die of food poisoning, and she’s very angry. I don’t blame her, I would probably be angry if I were her too. Anyhow, Logan is going to do everything he can to find out exactly what happened to her husband and what caused him to die.

But, he’s not doing it alone. He’s on his brand new subbie girl, Emily. She’s coming out to go on a cruise with him. She’s going to be his cover so that he can do some further investigation on the cruise ship and talk to the crew and staff, theoretically without being outed as an investigator. And hey, it’s two weeks on a BDSM cruise, and he’s a Domly type with a brand new subbie type. It’s a 2fer.

Emily is such a sweet woman. She’s a Little, and I think that she’s little most of the time, really. She’s very excited and excitable. She’s just enthusiastic about pretty much everything, and she’s pretty much willing to try most things. She does have some landmines, and Logan does trip over a couple, which causes some problems. And while I do think that she’s little most of the time, when she’s adult, she’s very smart and she manages to figure out a lot of things that end up helping Logan solve his issues.

I have to admit that I didn’t particularly care for Logan a lot of the time. There are many things that he does that I just outright don’t like, and they made me mad when he did those things or said those things. It took me a minute to deal with him. Now, I don’t have to like a main character all the time, as long as there is a character that I like and/or a story that I can get a hold of and enjoy, and both of those things are here. I can get a hold of the story and Emily. All that being said, there are times when I thought that he did some things really, really well.

Anyway, I’m looking forward to seeing the next book, because there were some things that I didn’t get answered in this one that I want to see if they get answered in the next one.

Kay Elle Parker-Dance For Me

So, Kay Elle Parker gave us a wonderful new book today. It’s called Dance For Me, and it’s the start of a new series, Club Avalon, about a BDSM club and the D-types who inhabit the club.

So, we start with Boadicea. Her best friend, Liam, works at Club Avalon, and he wants her to come perform at the stage. She’s a dancer, and Braun Fitzpatrick, the club’s owner, wants to have someone perform at the bar/social area, to entertain the members a couple of nights a week. Bodie could really use the job, she’s so far down on her luck that being flat broke would be an improvement. (Not that I’ve ever been there or anything.) But, sex club and deviancy. She has some serious issues with sex, and the whole idea of BDSM is just so foreign to her. (She has some serious issues subscriptions, and the idea of BDSM is not a good thing for her at this particular time.) So she is talking to her friend Liam, and he says something that is really insulting to her, and she walked away, even with the big amount of money that she’s being offered.

A month later, she’s out dancing on the street for money, and a man comes up to talk to her, and she walks away from him. When she gets home, she discovers a huge roll of money, a bracelet, and a note that says he misses you. He meaning Liam. So, she shows up at the club, and has words with both Liam and Braun.

So, I adore the name Boadicea. If you don’t know your history, she was a queen of a tribe back in the day in England, and the Romans did her and her family dirty. Really, really fucking dirty. So, she went out and did something about it. She chased the Romans out in her section of England for a while. Sadly, though, it didn’t last.

I think the name is perfect for our Bodie. She is fierce and she fights. If someone says something that hurts her, she will fight them. If someone hurts her friend, she will go and completely fucking fight them. I mean, she won’t just read you or cuss you up one side and down the other, she will fucking break your nose. The problem is that a part of that fight is her defense mechanism. If she gets hurt, scared, threatened, whatever, she’s going to get mad and fight you. That’s a really common reaction among with people and especially people who have been through some shit. And she has been through some serious shit.

Bodie has a really sweet center, you just have to get through a whole lot of barriers, walls, minefields, and barbed wire to get there. And really, with her history, I don’t blame her for having all those barriers up. I think that she’s done really well to get herself to where she is now.

Now let’s talk about Braun. I genuinely like Braun. I think that he’s a good man, and he has a very strong protective streak, a good heart, and he honestly wants to help people. He doesn’t seem to have any kind of ulterior motive when it comes to Bodie. He just wants her because she’s her, and not just because she’s hot or anything. It’s because she’s her. And he proves that to her. I think that he does really well with navigating the boobytraps in Bodie’s brain. There was only one time when I got mad at him. I understand why he did what he did, I just thought that it was not good thing to do, or at least, not good at that way.

I love the assembled cast, Jasper, Loki, Connie, Atticus, and Liam. Liam and Bodie have known each other for 20 years, and are very best friends. Everyone else is new to her, and they are all pretty good people. I can’t forget to add in Anarchy. I’m looking forward to knowing more about her.

pole-dance-1287822_1920

I hate, hate, hate Bodie’s parents. I want to run them over with a Matilda tank. Then back up and do it again. And again. And maybe again. Then light the remains on fire, with napalm and white phosphorus. Yeah, I might not like them very much.

So, that’s it for this one. I can’t wait for the next one. Go check it out! Happy reading!

Jennifer Bene-Black Light: Charmed

Today we get a twofer. We get a new Jennifer Bene and a new Black Light, all at once! Yay! We all know that I’m always down for both of those things, so combining them makes me a happy reader! So, let’s talk about Charmed.

This is the story of Logan and Cassandra. She’s a model, he’s the president of a big family company. They met at a Roulette event at Black Light West, and had a beautiful time. Then, they never saw each other again. They tried, but Cassandra is a model in high demand, and she’s working really hard to build her brand, so she takes every job she can. She’s rarely, if ever, in LA right now. She and Logan tried to get together, but they couldn’t make it work, so finally, they just fell out of contact with each other. However, Logan couldn’t get her out of his mind, so when he found out that she was doing a show at Runway West, he arranged to be there. He wanted to meet with her, and try to get her to date him.

Cassandra has thought about him, and then there he was. He asked her on a date and she turned him down. She’s pretty sure that they can’t have any kind of relationship because of her schedule and the fact that he’s tied to LA. If she’s going to be as successful as she wants, she can’t stay tied to LA, and she will have to travel all over the place. That doesn’t work well for a relationship. But, it’s December, and she’s going to be in LA for a few weeks, so maybe they can get at least get together for playdates or coffee, or you know, hot monkey sex.

I loved Cassandra. She just has this awesome free spirit, and is open to the universe and welcoming to what will come. She makes friends easily, and wants to have fun with her life, not just work hard. I mean, she will work hard too, she wants to, and she likes what she does, and she is serious about her craft and her brand. I think that she would definitely be a great person to know and to spend a lot of time with. I think that everyone who does spend time with her thinks that.

I had some problems with Logan. I liked him, but he had some daddy subscriptions issues. He really had some voices in his head that wouldn’t let him go. He doesn’t necessarily treat most people well. One of my favorite scenes with Cassandra is when she goes after Logan for the way that he is treating someone. She goes after him and makes him apologize. I was impressed by that, so much.

I think that Logan would really benefit from the help of a good therapist.

OK, that’s all I have to say about this one. Go check it out! Happy reading!
