Measha Stone-Club Dark Lace

So, Measha has gathered up two of her stories, which both involve Club Dark Lace, and put them together into a boxset. The two books are Until Daddy and Unzoned, formerly Until You. I reviewed Until Daddy back last year, when it originally came out. I hadn’t read Unzoned until now, so this review is going to be about that book. Both books in the set take place at the same time, and they are about a pair of best friends. Jade and Carissa are best friends and so are Jamison and Garrick, who both just happen to be Doms, business owners, and part owners of Club Dark Lace.

So, here’s how Jade and Garrick’s story works. They have been BFFs since basically forever. They both are madly in love with the other, but neither one of them knows it, They are both kinky AF too, which is kinda secret. I mean, Garrick knows that about Jade, but she doesn’t know it about him, and she’s sure that he wouldn’t be interested in it.

Anyway, Carissa and Jade have just gotten memberships to Club Dark Lace. Carissa went scouting there one night, and now she and Jade are both going. Garrick is pretty sure that he knows it’s going to happen that night, due to Carissa’s recon, and he and his friend Jamison are waiting. Miss Jade is going to learn a thing or two before the end of the night.

I like the connection between Garrick and Jade. They know everything (mostly) about each other because they’ve been in each other’s lives for so long. I mean, Garrick knows when Jade is lying, because he’s observed her for so long. I think that’s mostly a good thing, but I think that it can also be a little difficult, especially at the beginning of a relationship. It can be problematical to go from such an intense and long term friendship to a more intimate relationship, and then you put any kind of kink in it, and trying to put all those things in place all at once can lead to people being a little off balance.

I think that Garrick should’ve come clean about certain things much sooner than he did. I would’ve been really angry in Jade’s place. I think that Jade should’ve stopped and thought before she jumped to certain conclusions, but I can understand why she went there.

Anyway, I’d love to see more from this particular world. I love club worlds.

Nothing under the pic today. Go check out the book and happy reading!

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!
