The 3 Ms-Deliciously Decadent

Maddie, Morganna, and Meredith are back with some Deliciously Decadent stories. I love anything that any of them write on their own, Maddie has shown up here a lot, so you probably know that. None of the stories are co-written, but you are getting a bunch of stories gathered together by the 3 ladies, so it’s all good.

Most of these stories are pretty quick to read, like 10-15 minutes, or at least 10-15 minutes for me. There are a few, like Doctor’s Orders, by Maddie, and Creed’s Joy, by Morganna, that took me a little longer to read them. Not a whole lot longer, but some.

There are some that I would probably more consider a slice of life kind of story, because they are just quick peeks at the lives that the couples in them are living. I would Clarissa’s Stern Daddy and Lucy’s Little Weekend, both by Meredith in this category. We just get a little snippet of a larger story. It’s like someone took an hour or a day of your life and put it on a page. Both of these stories are really sweet and loving, and each shows a happy DD/lg relationship, even if Daddy isn’t necessarily all that happy right that second. There is no drama, no angst, just life.

There is one story that made me bawl my fucking eyes out, and it’s hard to do that in a really short story, and this one is. It’s another Meredith O’Reilly story, and she just wanted to kill me, I think. It’s called A Soldier’s Homecoming. On my Kindle, it runs from 58% to 62%, and took about 7 minutes for me to read. Yes, I went back and checked the percentage and the timing on it. I would tell you the page amount, but I don’t get that on most ARCs. I’m pointing out all those stats so that I can emphasize just how much emotion Meredith packed into this story.

Most of the stories are pretty contemporary, but there are a couple of scifi stories tossed in there, just for fun. You also get a nice pirate story in there as well.

All in all, this book is packed full of stories that you can read when you need a lift, or when you only have a couple of minutes, or you just want to read 3 great authors.

I wanted a picture of something that was delicious and decadent, and I think I succeeded.

Measha Stone-Until Daddy

If you’ve been around for a while, you know that I love Measha’s books. And we all know that books that I love to read are books that I love to share. So, today, I’m sharing Until Daddy by Measha.

This is an age play/DD/lg story. Carissa has started hanging out at Dark Lace, the local BDSM club. Before Christmas, she meets Jamison there. They play once, and then she doesn’t answer his texts or calls and doesn’t call him. Carissa is positive that kink relationships don’t work, so she’s more than happy to have a play partner, but she doesn’t want anything more, even if she had a lot of fun playing with Jamison. She keeps going to the club and asks if he’s there every time she goes, but she’s always told that he’s not. Except he always is, since he’s part owner.

Eventually, he confronts Carissa and tells her what he wants. She tells him that there’s no point in it. So they make a deal. She’ll be his for 1 month, and then they’ll see what happens. And oh yeah, she’ll call him Daddy. Jamison is positive that she will realize that they belong together. Carissa is bound and determined to make sure that she’s protecting herself and her heart. She’s been hurt because everyone in her life has hurt or abandoned her, and she’s not going to let it happen again, which is why she agrees to the expiration date.

I liked both Carissa and Jamison. They are both damaged. That damage has made them both stronger and weaker. If you look at a broken bone, the strongest spot on it is going to be where it has healed because bone has had to grow up and around it. It’s the same with Carissa and Jamison. The fact that they have been damaged has made them strong. But at the same time, it’s left them with huge glaring blind spots and other difficulties, including trust and commitment. So, see, stronger and weaker. There’s a lot going on in this book outside of the really hot sex and the great love story, but for me, the most important part of the story is the journies that Carissa and Jamison take to figure out who they are separately and together. Of course, that journey isn’t an easy one, it never is. The things that are most worth it never are easy, right?

OMG, Jamison’s father. What a fucking sleaze. Frankly, I thought that he might have done what Carissa suggested from the very beginning, but then again, I’m devious that way. And his father is one of Jamison’s huge blind spots. I mean, he’s spent so many years trying to make the man proud of him that he can’t see anything else.

OK, that’s all I have to say about this one today. Go check it out on the all mighty Zon and tell me what you think. Happy reading!

Ava Sinclair-Big Daddy

For some reason, I really enjoy reading DD/lgĀ and age play stories lately. So, when Ava Sinclair, who has written some beautiful books in this genre comes out with a new one, I have to be all over that. Big Daddy is her newest entry into the genre, and I thought it was a great story.

Jill is a hot mess. She drinks to the point of blacking out on a regular basis. She has burned through job and job after job. Her best friend and roommate has reached her breaking point.

One day, Jill wakes up at home, but she doesn’t remember what happened and how she got back home. All she knows is that she is home, her clothes are neatly folded, and she’s pretty sure she didn’t have sex. She tells her roommate that she doesn’t feel well and doesn’t want to go out. Her roommate gets pissed off at her because she’s once again gotten drunk to the point of blacking out. She tells Jill that she is sick of all the drinking and that she’s not going to carry Jill again is she somehow blows her job. Jill needs to suck it up and straighten up. One way to do that is for Jill to do really well at this huge presentation.

When she gets to work on Monday, Max Iver is there. He gives all the women at the office the screaming thigh sweats. He’s hot, he’s rich, and he’s the perfect daddy. Everyone wants to be his friend. Her presentation is for him.

Max went to a PR agency to get a new ad blitz for his company. He wants something that will attract younger people. Jill has worked really hard on a presentation that she thinks will work for him. Sadly, it’s not what he wants and he tells her so. When Max tells Jill that, she goes off on a tear and ends up getting fired.

As she’s walking out the door and to her car, she gets a message on her phone. A video of her, boozily answering questions. She also gets a message telling her to be in a certain place at a certain time. When she gets there, Max is there and he tells her that she needs a Daddy and he makes her an offer. She can come live with him and he will take care of her, including helping her to get her life back under control.

OK, now it’s time to choose your own adventure. I’m going to go one way, you can go the other, or you can follow me, it depends on you. Max is a good Daddy and he does take really good care of Jill. He spanks her as necessary and rewards her as necessary. One of my favorite things about Max and Jill is that they both push each other to be better and do better. You don’t always see that, but it made me really like their relationship because that’s the way a real relationship works. It’s a lovely relationship, in my opinion.

Just a warning, if you don’t want spoilers, definitely pass the next paragraph up.

One way in which Jill pushes Max to do better is that she pushes him to meet with estranged family. There is a lot of pain surrounding family in Max’s life and he really doesn’t want to handle it, but Jill makes him do it and it’s better for everyone involved. It fit in really well with the story for her to do that and for him to listen to her. It wouldn’t work in every story, but it does here.

I love that Max pushes Jill to be more responsible and that she is able to talk to people in her past who she may have hurt and is able to apologize and tell them that they were right to do what they did. That takes a lot of emotional maturity and not everyone can get to that point, no matter how old they are, so for Jill to go from where she was to that point is pretty amazing.

OK, that’s all I have to do for today. Go check out all Ava Sinclair’s book and find out why I like to read them so much. See you next week! Meanwhile, happy reading!
