Ryan Anderson had expected retaliation in some form. A guy just didn’t cross a woman with a sword, especially if that woman was Molly Shanahan, 2016 Olympic women’s fencing hopeful. She’d been born with the glint of a gold medal in her eye. She might be the girl of his dreams, if he can get past her guard.


Short and sweet comes to mind with this one and very timely with reading it when the Rio Olympics was on.

Ryan and Molly have known each other for years. After Molly’s father saw his potential in fencing from a young age he decided to get him to be his daughters training partner. He has been paying Ryan’s mum, almost as a thank you, for years due to this. He agreed to help fund Ryan’s hopes of being an Olympic fencer just as his daughters is. Even to the point of Ryan moving in with them so they could train all the time. Her father clearly likes to control every aspect of her life, something she has grown to hate.

Their friendship has slowly grown over the years on both sides into something more but the other can’t be sure of it. Just when Molly thinks it might happen, that the relationship would change, Ryan up and moves out of their house (well mansion really). Heartbroken that he would leave without a word she decides to show how angry she is by going to his new place and attacking his Christmas tree; something she felt he was rubbing in her face with how proud he was of it. Seems that was the thing that needed to happen though to create the spark in him to take what has always been his.

A confrontation was always on the cards and with Molly having some of her swords handy in her room things soon turn interesting – well they are used to using swords to settle an argument. Molly wants the real reason as to why he left her there all alone in the big house that she has come to hate without him in it. She might just get the best answer she could have been hoping for.

Fiery characters but story was too short. You could have had a bit more back-story back and forth banter/fights between the two so you could see how the chemistry between them has changed over time but overall a fun short read.

Stepdaddy Dom (Step Dom)

An erotic taboo tale by T.S. Irons

#BDSM #erotic #taboo



My life was almost perfect. I had a job I loved that made me a ton of money. I had the perfect wife who was sexy, smart, and loved to play games in the bedroom. And then there was Riley, my eighteen-year-old stepdaughter, the bane of my existence. She was a spoiled brat that needed to be taught a lesson, and I was going to bend her into submission.



Brat Out of Hell by T.S. Irons

#BDSM #taboo #erotic



Step-daddy said I was a spoiled brat and needed to be taught a lesson. Well, two can play that game. If he wouldn’t play with me, I’d find someone else to take the dungeon. I didn’t plan on getting caught. Next, I was kicked out of the house, landed on the doorstep of the Church of the Brotherly Bonds. Pastor Damian was too hot to be a man of the cloth. Seeking salvation has never been more fun.





Sibling Rivalry by T.S. Irons

#erotic #menage #taboo



They say everything is bigger in Texas. I witnessed it first hand: the men, egos, and lifestyles. I was smack dab in the middle of it. My name is Cassandra Wade. I gave up a successful modeling career to be the trophy wife of Jackson Wade, the famous oil magnate. It would have been great if it weren’t for Jackson’s twin sons, Derek and Damon. They were polar opposites: the angel and the devil incarnate. While Jackson offered me security, Derek and Damon offered something very different. Something I tried to resist, but the urge and desire was too strong and I succumbed to temptation. What will happen if Jackson finds out? It’s sure to be an epic battle of wills because losing isn’t a word the Wade men tolerate.



My Wicked Stepsister by T.S. Irons

#taboo #erotic #romance #menage



My wicked stepsister—a tale of lust, seduction and surrender.

Drew Reynolds was the most beautiful woman in the world to me. We grew up together, and I’ve watched out for her since we were children. She was the Hollywood “It” Girl—flirty, outrageous, and always in trouble.

I’ve been her protector, her rock, her savior. I also happened to be her stepbrother, and completely infatuated with her.

Growing up in Hollywood, we’ve always had an unconventional family. Nothing is ever as it seems. When the lines between reality and fantasy become blurred, what’s a guy to do?

Should I push aside my feelings of desire or cross a line I’m not sure either one of us can come back from?

Revelations: Confessions of a Dirty Girl by T.S. Irons

#eroticromance #suspense #99cents

Revelations is a full length novel




I lead a charmed life on the Upper East Side of New York with a doting daddy who adored me.

Then one day it all came to a screeching halt. I escaped the only life I had known. In a new town with a new identity and no friends, I had two choices—wallow in pity or embrace my new life and the possibilities it could bring me. With the FBI in pursuit, I decided to stop worrying about things I had no control over.

I was free from the proper, privileged life I had lived. I was also free of a very boring, uptight boyfriend whose idea of sex was five minutes in missionary position followed by a shower to clean himself off. Now I could take a journey and follow my own sexual urges.

It was all fun and games until Patrick Shannon showed up with a beer and pizza and wanted to talk, which lead to him spending the night. As feelings brewed beneath the surface and the FBI closed in, I grew anxious. Should I take a chance with Shannon, who pissed me off just as much as he excited me? Or should I flee the man I was falling for to stay one step ahead of the FBI?

“Use those feelings Claire, channel that fear and anger into something positive.” He swept his gaze over my face and looked me straight in the eye. “You’re not a victim, not any more. It’s time to take control and fight back. Not just physically,” he tapped at my temple. “Up here.” His hand glided down my neck and settled over my pounding heart. “And here. Anything is possible.”

Pain. Broken. Fear.

They took it all… my body, my soul, my strength…
My Matty.
I was floating through this life, my face an endless smile for my loved ones so they wouldn’t know the emptiness inside, the coldness that stayed with me.
Then the numb faded, I broke from the devil whispering in my ear. I was awake, alert, ready to find my strength.

But I wasn’t expecting him…

Heat. Desire. Need.

My name is Claire – and this is my Spiral.

Book Review: ‘Bimbofied By The Doctor’ by Ava Sterling

Bimbofied By The Doctor

Title: Bimbofied By The Doctor

Published: 24th January 2016

Publisher: Red Lace Publishing

Author: Ava Sterling

Twitter: @ava_sterling


Penny used to like simple things, such as quiet nights at home, conservative clothing, and the occasional glass of wine while reading a good book. Which is why it’s so strange that every time she comes home from working at Dr. Carter’s hypnotherapy office, she feels changes come over her, changes that make her forgetful and want to show off her body.

She notices these changes, but will she resist and confront Dr. Carter, or will she take the path of least resistance and become the bimbo he’s always wanted?

(This explicit story is intended for adult readers only)


Well this is a story of a very naughty doctor who has been having a bit too much fun with his patients and the next on his agenda is his receptionist. I like that you don’t find out straight away what kind of doctor he is as that would have given the game away too soon.

Penny is obviously a very good worker who always tries to be the best at what she does. So when Dr Carter starts ‘suggesting’ these changes she could make to make the work environment better she goes ahead with them. I like that she does try to question what he is asking her to do. Also when she is trying to reason with herself why she followed through with some of his suggestions. You can tell that it would have been a long process to get her to change completely into this walking bimbofied puppet he has created but you have to wonder whether he will soon get bored with her and ‘create’ a new toy to play with.

Penny starts off as a strong-minded person who is work focused but she is very easily led and when Dr Carter sets his sights on her you could tell she wouldn’t stand a chance. You get a feel soon on with his other patients that something isn’t quite right with how long he spends with them, adjusting his tie when they leave is a clue I think – he must have some stamina though!

A well-written story that slowly takes you on a journey, along with Penny, showing how subtle the changes were before she had completely transformed into a new bimbofied version of herself. A version that the Doctor was clearly pleased with what he had created if the ending is anything to go by.

Book Review: ‘Storm’ by Carian Cole


Title: Storm (Ashes & Embers Book 1)

Published: 6th October 2014

Author: Carian Cole


Twitter: @CarianCole


The calm before the storm… I lived in the quiet stillness. I felt the wind rustle, warning me, telling me to get out of its path. But I didn’t. I never stood a chance. A series of weather and road mishaps leaves me trapped in the middle of a blizzard with a complete stranger. In the back of a pickup truck. For forty-eight freakin’ hours. A stranger with long hair, tattoos, and rippling with muscle. A stranger with an insanely sexy voice and a wicked smile that turned my insides to jelly. A stranger who held me in his arms, calmed me, and then set a fire in me that I couldn’t put out. Storm lives up to his name. Beautiful. Dangerously inviting. Tumultuous. Dark. A clash of hot and cold. He’s used to getting everything he wants. And now he wants me. Some people chase storms for the beautiful thrill. What happens when the storm chases you?


Goes down as another off my 2016 Bookworm Bingo Challenge – A book with weather in the title. Sometimes when you’ve solely been existing but not really living you need something big to happen to shake things up. Being caught in a blizzard with a hot stranger sure does that. Who knew getting cold could be so hot! Storm’s just what Evelyn needed to kick start her life again and she’s just what he needed to want to be there for someone again. #BlizzardChick lets have some fun!

One of many good quotes:
“You will touch me, Evie. I want to feel your hands all over me because it’s like a fucking drug for me right now and I need it.” He leans his forehead against mine. “And I’m going to make you beg me to let you, because I need that, too.”

Evelyn is not having a good day. First she goes into a bit of a driving coma where you switch off but keep driving – been there! Doing so has meant she stopped listening to her SatNav and now she is lost. Making matters worse the snow is coming down heavier, so heavy in fact that she ends up skidding off the road. The car spinning is enough to freak anyone out but thankfully it stops. Starting to panic and not sure what to do she gets a shock when a guy bangs on the door asking if she is all right. Confrontation from the get go but more because she fears he is going to be some kind of murderer. Paranoia is a dangerous thing for her as we soon find out. After a lot of talking – more on her part than his – she accepts his offer of help, more so when he has to carry her due to her very unsuitable pumps. Once in his car, after first being freaked out by the wolf like dog, you would think her night couldn’t get worse. Well hello there mister deer thanks for jumping in front of Storms car making it spin into a ditch. Now she is stuck with a stranger and his dog only thinking the worse; who knew it was the best place to be.

Storm by name storm by nature. Well he certainly knows how to make an impression and not because of whom he is. For once he has found someone who has no idea who he is so can just be himself, someone he hasn’t really been for a while. Stuck in the middle of a blizzard isn’t how he thought this trip to his cabin would go but the longer he spends with Evelyn the more he starts to like how fate put them together.

Getting cold in a blizzard isn’t good so its lucky Storm has a big blanket to crawl under but you all know body heat is best and when they get close the sparks soon start to show. More so when he starts to assist her with her own pleasure, there and then more so when they finally get to his cabin – hello hot tub jets! Only draw back would be her boyfriend but the more you hear and see about him the more you want to hit him. You know he is no good and a bit of a dickwad if I’m being honest and you are just waiting for Evelyn to wake up and realise it.

Being caught in their blizzard bumble time seems to have stopped and you can see that they don’t really want to part from it or each other. The real world is calling but it has its drawbacks. Her douchebag boyfriend is one and the fact he is a major rock star with women throwing themselves at him is another. Events start to pull them apart; the pressures of reality setting in, but you can see how badly Storm wants them to stay together. He just has to convince her that he is the choice she should go for. He has brought her back to life again and she has made him realize what he has been missing for years. To both have someone that is theirs completely, whom would do anything for the other and only bring out the best in them. The chemistry between them might start off sweet and slow but soon turns into an inferno of heat when they really get down to it. After only ever being with one man Evie can now see what she has been missing out on. Pleasure for one thing, come on girl it should be found every time and if not you’re just with the wrong partner.

Loved Evie’s best friend Amy, as she is clearly someone who cares about her and only wants the best. She’s also great with her advice and boy does she want to just push her into Storms arms. She can see he is the right guy for her so is just trying to hurry up her friends mind to make the right decision. Here’s hoping she pops up again in the rest of the series, as she’s a right laugh.

I liked how it ends as it’s like everything has gone full circle to where it all began. Everything happens for a reason, fate put them together so lets hope it keeps them together.
