Book Review: ‘Tough Love’ by Ava Sterling

Title: Tough Love: A Spanking Story

Published: 10th June 2017

Synopsis:

Lingerie is Kate’s ultimate weakness. That, and spanking.

The spanking kink between Kate and Colin started years ago, and it’s only heated up since then. But with Colin away at a conference, Kate falls back into her old ways of overspending on lingerie. The lingerie is mostly a gift for him, after all.

The only problem is the budget and the credit card interest. As soon as Colin gets home, he’ll likely be upset, and what better way to dole out his punishment than bending his fiancée over his knee?

Review:

Another fun short read to get stuck into. Flowed nicely from the start and had a good pace throughout. Interesting dynamics with both Kate and Colin with how they reacted to each other. Giving the other what they needed, when they needed it. Might be a punishment for being bad but it soon turns into pleasure for both of them.

Kate has found a way to get the desired reaction from her fiancé if she does something that is a bit bad. Buying a lot of expensive lingerie without permission will do that, but she can’t seem to deny herself them. She loves the thrill of getting something new but I think its more that she likes the thrill of knowing she will be in trouble for it. Though she does think at the time that she has more time before having to face Colin. Seems his business trip got cut short and she is going to face the music sooner than she thought.

I liked that neither could seem to keep a secret from the other. It is the bases of their relationship to be completely honest with each other, no matter the consequences for Kate. She longs to please him in every way but can’t help reacting in certain ways to get the release she longs for – even if she has to be a little bad to get it. It’s about giving up control to the one person who loves her most. Control is something he has in spades as he can get her blood pressure to rise with merely a few words and a look. His too as you can clearly see he is just as excited to play their games as she is. She may get some tough love with her punishment but he sure finds a fun way to reward her afterwards for taking it so well. Something they both enjoyed and will continue to do so from now on. She likes the rewards she gets from being a good girl but you just know it won’t be long before she is a bad girl again.

Book Review: ‘Call Me Cutie’ by Ava Sterling

Title: Call Me Cutie: A Bimbo Story

Published: 21st May 2017

Publisher: Red Lace Publishing

Synopsis:

Who knew being a bimbo could be so rewarding?

Katie might as well have been invisible standing next to the blonde bimbo at the coffee shop. She keeps getting passed over for promotions and better treatment. She’s the smart, successful one, but is it worth it?

In a moment of frustration, she does an online search for an answer. She finds it, but not in the form she expects. Become the Bimbo You’ve Always Wanted to Be, the website promises. And after staring at a blurred, wavy image and repeating airhead phrases for a half-hour, she’s already starting to feel the effects.

The next day, she wakes up to some drastic changes, which catches the eye of every man she passes. There’s a power she now wields, and it’s her transformed body, bimbo thoughts, and pretty voice. This story explores how she uses them.

(This explicit, 5,300 word story is intended for adult readers only)

 

Review:

Seems Katie is getting a bit fed up with being overlooked by the blonde bimbo bombshells that walk around everywhere getting all the attention. More so when they get to cut in front of her as she is trying to get her coffee. Marty at the cash register isn’t helping matters when he all but looks through her to serve them first. Seems he only focuses on a certain type and even though she tries to convince herself that she is happy with the way she looks she can’t help but wonder what it would be like to be like them and how she’d act – if only for a little while.

She gets her wish of sorts when she does a little Internet surfing later that night. After finding a site that will let you Be the Slut You Know You Are! She is more than intrigue by the prospects of what it guarantees. It may seem silly at the time but when she wakes the next day she finds a lot of things have changed in the seventeen hours she had been asleep. Not sure if this is some kind of spell, hypnosis or body/mind swap but somehow the next morning she has turned into the blonde bimbo bombshell she never thought she’d be. Now she has become the one that men will stare at and long for. So what better way to test out the new her – as she doesn’t know how long she will keep it – than going back to the coffee shop where it all started. Not sure if Marty is in on all the changes that happen to the female customers but he sure likes looking at the results but its Paul who catches her eye.

She is embracing the new her in every way and can’t wait to let out her inner slut in whatever way Paul will let her. Hot and heavy when they get together and you can see that as long as she is ‘in’ her new body she is going to experience everything possible. Fun, quirky read that gets hotter right to the end. Liked that even thought Katie had changed she was still in control over what she was doing. Almost like she was living vicariously through a new version of her to see what all the fuss was about with the blondes in the first place. Is it permanent or just a weekend adventure? Either way she is going to enjoy the ride, especially with Paul in control of her pleasure.

Book Review: ‘The Perks of Fame’ by Ava Sterling

Title: The Perks of Fame: A Celebrity Lesbian Story

Published: 1st March 2017

Publisher: Red Lace Publishing

Author: Ava Sterling

Synopsis:

What can you get when you’re a celebrity? Anything you want.

Jo’s career as a model is taking off, giving her countless fans and the opportunity to travel around the world. The only thing it doesn’t give her is a relationship with her boyfriend, who decides the time away from home is too much for him.

Before moving to New York City, Jo decides to relax in her hometown of Phoenix, where her biggest fan just happens to live. On a whim, Jo invites her out for drinks…and likely more after.

Callie turns out to be the perfect fangirl. She worships the ground Jo walks on. They have a wild night out at the club until Jo turns up the heat back at her apartment.

It’s an opportunity for Callie to have her night with a celebrity, and Jo uses this to her advantage. Callie turns out to be the perfect, obedient, lesbian pet. There are perks to being famous.

Review:

So with Jo being back on home ground she wants to have a little bit of fun. Being newly single will do that for a girl, but this time round she wants a bit of female attention. As soon as she lands she posts a picture to her adoring fans, the perks of being famous, and loves that she gets a response from Callie. Now this is someone I think she got a feel for on other occasions they’ve met with how much she liked her. She loves that she can use her fame to get what she wants and right now its getting Callie on a night out so she can have her wicked way with her. The moment she gets her in her sights she is almost like a woman on a mission, that being how quick can she get Callie back to hers and on her knees. Not that Callie is really complaining as she’s clearly in awe of Jo.

Jo calls herself a femme fatale but I’m thinking she is much more like a Domme. She clearly loves having the control and having someone hanging on her every word. She longs for obedience in a lover, more so with a woman, and with Callie she gets it in spades. You know after one night of fun she is going to want to keep her around for a bit longer. Especially with how well Callie played her to give her just what she wanted. Win-win situation in Jo’s eyes with what they could both get out of it. From the way things end you can tell that they are going to take New York by storm working very closely together.

Book Review: ‘Kiss My Wife’ by Ava Sterling

Title: Kiss My Wife – A Swingers Story

Published: 28th May 2017

Publisher: Red Lace Publishing

Author: Ava Sterling

Synopsis:

Life isn’t about eating your vegetables; it’s about having a heaping plate of dessert.

Cole and Dana have been married a long time. They’ve raised children and are a cornerstone of their community. Their secret: they’re heading to a discreet swingers resort for married couples. If they go through with it, people will expect them to sleep with other couples…together.

They arrive at the resort a little nervous, but once they meet Trent and Charlotte, they loosen up some. Then they loosen up a lot more.

Cole and Dana want Trent and Charlotte to show them the ropes…and their bodies, giving them a crash course in what it’s like to see your spouse with someone else. The combined mix of jealousy and excitement makes everything worth it.

And that’s just the beginning of the night.

(This explicit, 4,400 word story is intended for adult readers only)

 

Review:

The Lotus Flower Circle Resort is a marriage retreat with a bit more spice included to help couples in the bedroom department. Something that Cole and Dana are starting to realize they need to help them both get what they want out of their sex life. It’s a slow burn to begin with as they are nervous but it doesn’t take long before they let their inner vixens come out to play.

Interesting to see how much Cole and Dana grow in confidence from when they get there to when they leave. You can clearly see the love they have and that they are afraid this weekend might hurt their marriage but in fact it does the exact opposite. Get ready for some fun guys because your eyes are about to be opened to what your inner desires have been trying to tell you.

You can clearly see that Trent and Charlotte are well versed in sharing and swapping partners and that they like newbies to try out. Think of them as your introduction fuck to get you started on a more adventurous weekend of fun. There is clearly a lot of chemistry between the four of them and its not long before things start to get heated in a curtained off room. I wonder whether their farewell fuck was simply a swap or whether they tried a little ménage of their own. From saying that Dana let out her inner slut you have to wonder what they got up to.

You get some heated action within this one and you can see that they are going to want to continue their games in the future. Maybe another retreat trip sometime soon is on the cards? Would definitely be worth taking a look down the road to see what they get up to next and with whom.

Book Review: ‘Mistress Comes First’ by Ava Sterling

Title: Mistress Comes First: A BDSM Story

Published: 28th April 2017

Publisher: Red Lace Publishing

Author: Ava Sterling

Twitter: @ava_sterling

 

Synopsis:

When Levi wears his collar, the rest of the world gets a little fuzzy around the edges.

For their six month anniversary, Levi gives his girlfriend, Raleigh, a key to his apartment. Since then, she’s left her soap in his shower and some extra clothes in the back of his dresser. She also added one more item, but it’s one Levi wears…his collar.

Ever since their BDSM lifestyle started, Levi has found a new purpose: pleasing his Mistress. She always took care of him, but most importantly, she always showed him exactly how to please her.

One night, Raleigh gives her submissive a task before coming home with a treat.

(This explicit, 4,600 word story is intended for adult readers only)

 

Review:

I liked the flow of this one, had a good steady pace to it with the growing anticipation of what’s to come being drawn out. Definitely a story about delayed gratification for Levi. Though I don’t think he minds in the slightest, he clearly loves giving up control to Raleigh. He just wants her to move in so that they will be in a constant state of it I think. He knows that his – like the title suggests – mistress comes first in all things and only if she is satisfied with him will she let him get any kind of release. Once that collar goes around his neck he knows who is in charge and he loves it. He longs to be her ‘Good Boy’ and is willing to do whatever she asks just for the slightest chance of getting a release, whether it is for her, him, or both of them.

Raleigh seems to handle the role of a mistress very well and from Levi’s thoughts you know she has had fun teaching him how to behave just the way she likes it. It’s interesting to see the roles reversed with the woman being in control. You can clearly see that she loves to take care of him but also put him in his place. I’m not sure the ‘punishment’ she gave him was really one he would turn down after his slip up with what to call her. She obviously knows what kind of magic his tongue is capable of.

Fun dynamic between the two of them and it would be interesting to see what would happen or change if he does finally get her to move in with him. Is he ready to wear that cover full time I wonder? If that’s what he longs for than I’m sure she wouldn’t be able to say no for much longer.
