I sell sex, sin, and pleasure, but it isn’t just my business, it’s my entire life. I get off on the power of controlling it all.

She’s the one woman I can’t have.

She threatens everything, and yet I can’t stay away. There’s a beautiful, sexual creature inside this timid girl that’s desperate to claw its way out. I’m going to set it free, even if it brings my empire tumbling down.

I have to believe she’ll be worth all the little mistakes I’ve made.


REVIEW BY ELLE

Honestly, I was surprised when Joseph; the owner of Blindfold Club have his own story. Lol. Because in my minds, Joseph was like Tom Cruise in Tropic Thunder. Yeah, the point is I never felt Joseph as a ‘pimp’ described HOT and WOW. So, I kinda hope Joseph got a worthy ‘opponent’ like himself but apparently not :/

That night was busy for Joseph because he has to take care of his club. But when he saw a certain blonde hair woman, to be exactly in lust at first night. Her name is Em. An accident happened to Em in Joseph’s club and Joseph quickly offer his help that Em curious about. His attraction towards her almost made he lose control but he quickly recover when Em rejected him. Her real name is Noemi. A good girl wanna be gone bad. Joseph is about to be her escape. She needs to escape from the good girl image and Joseph is gonna help her with a requirement. To be his sub. He already know the consequences from their relationship but Em didn’t know.

It’s very clear that Three Little Mistakes contains BDSM element; not only kinky sex. I was so happy when I know Joseph is a Dom and Noemi is a curious woman. Fifteen years age difference isn’t a problem in this story. At first, their relationship is starting based on lust, but after times they’re starting develop something. This story is kinda more into romance; BDSM only the spices.

Joseph has very interesting character and deeply explored than the previous books. But from BDSM aspect, I think Joseph isn’t really act like a Dom; but he isn’t that bad. Noemi also an independent woman. Behind her good girl personal, she always accept everything Joseph gave to her in many sexual form.

However, the most irritated thing is Noemi always turn down something before think. Well, to be exactly she always said YES, and after that she turns into coward. WTF?! Maybe I should count how many times she told to FUCKIN’ WAIT? For a smart good girl, I couldn’t believe she has very impulsive answer. Couldn’t make her goddamn mind. No matter how brilliant she is, Noemi is so dumb when they have sexual interaction. The story was so monotone when they’re starting to stall.

description

I don’t know how to say about the sex. Too much or not? It depends. This isn’t work for me because their sex didn’t interest me anymore. Especially, the scene when they’re met Dom-Peyton in a party. Okay, that’s too much for my eyes *cringe* Also the ending felt anti-climatic with some of awkward moments #facepalm

REVIEW BY ELLE

Another surprise for me!! I’ve been waiting for Konstatin!! He’s so… yum! Although honestly I didn’t have a single imagination about what’s he looks like but I know he’s very handsome man. For me, he’s like a real Dominant in their BDSM world. Not so much like Banner and Ambrose. I’m surprised I liked his story than his friends. Lmao!

Konstantin has to break-up BDSM relationship with his two girls because he’s betrothed by an unknown Russian girl. He didn’t know her at all beside from photo. He never think about married and babies because it scares him. Varushka just a common girl who got lucky to meet Konstantin through mutual friends; Konstantin’s grandma. At first glance, Konstantin know she born as submissive and what’s the worst is she’s vanilla. Well, maybe for a while. But Konstantin never thought Varushka to be his wife + submissive.

Konstantin already fascinated me with his lifestyle. He has two submissive and didn’t mind for polyamory relationship in this case. He enjoyed his lifestyle very well and some people mentioned he’s quite a sadist. But when Varushka come into his life with her innocence, Konstantin couldn’t hold himself. His mind already triggered with her submissive’s act every time. But he never think that he will ‘train’ her in the future. Otherwise, Varushka is a girl from small town like a Cinderella. She got the Prince Charming and his kingdom. Actually, I like her better than Kate and Everly. But she has some weak point like her constant unsure to have sex before marriage. Yeah, she’s very religious about it although she didn’t hypocrite to have sex with Konstantin. I could feel her struggle. But Konstantin handled it very well. He didn’t rush and go with the flow. He didn’t want her to be guilt about it. Aw… (But he give her so many organs LOL)

description

Unfortunately, their BDSM relationship has small portion. Almost half of the book focused to build their chemistry before they went into BDSM. Of course, it’s about trust and connection. They didn’t know each other so it’s very important. I loved how Konstantin handle her curiosity and she didn’t freak out. They’re so cute together! The minus is Konstantin seems softer than before. He’s still strict about having control as her Dom but he never show his sadist side to consider her feeling. Their relationship seems fun until the end. It was sexy and romantic.

description

What I liked the most is the lake scene. It was burning HOT in so many levels. I really do love Konstantin’s dirty talk. Although the drama that ’cause they break for a while didn’t convince me so much, the solution was too easy. It didn’t reach my expectation but at least they have happily every after. To Have and to Master is the best book so far. I enjoyed their moment together 😀

After being abandoned by his submissive, Ambrose has avoided any serious connections—until he meets Everly, who refuses to be ignored. But just when he thinks he’s found the perfect sub, he finds out she’s an anti-poverty activist with harsh opinions about the rich. Telling her he’s wealthy will ruin everything, but he can’t collar her with a huge lie hanging over them.

Will the best thing that’s ever happened to him walk away when she finds out the truth?

REVIEW BY ELLE

I’m quite surprised to say that this book actually better than the previous. I was really excited to see how Ambrose’s story will go. FYI, I didn’t enjoy #1 Finding Master Right, but poor Ambrose need his happily ever after. Turns out it was quite okay and fast.

Ambrose and Everly met at the salon and they have quick talk about BDSM. They decide to spend the night for play at the BDSM club in the town. They seem comfortable with each other. Everly is a plus size girl who is positive with her body. She knows BDSM and known as a brat. Ambrose felt challenged by her sassy attitude. Because in Everly’s mind, her brat side needs punishment, not intend to be disrespect.

Based on how his previous play in the first book, Ambrose is a firm and nice Dom. He could be playful but still has dominant aura. There are some minus like no story about how he get into the lifestyle. The only story is about his traumatic past and personal life. It’s not enough for me. On the contrary, Although Everly is a nice person with confident, she’s brat enough to drive me crazy. Sometimes her attitude is not about the lifestyle, but lack of attention. She’s also judgmental person towards rich people. Over judgmental that makes me uncomfortable. I don’t why she’s in this lifestyle either. For me, both of them like role-play with D/s relationship.

description

I don’t have any problem outside their lifestyle. I mean, their vanilla relationship seems more fun than BDSM. No pressure. The ‘main’ problem felt too shallow and I don’t enjoy it. Not to mentioned it was a little shabby. The sex is just fine. But with so much thinking inside their heads, it was too stiff. Lack of chemistry. On the bright side, they’re not that sucks than Banner and Kate’s book. They’re quickly realize the mistakes in the end. So, Playing Hard to Master isn’t that bad. Whew… The last story about Konstantin. This man is really… ‘mysterious’ :p

Title? Check!
Cover? Double check!
Reality? NOPE!

description

I’m glad that i could finish it! Almost DNF. BDSM is not a new theme for me. I was hoping this book is good as the others. Clearly, it’s quite disappointing with what I’ve found.

I really want to say this out loud.

DEAR KATE, YOU SHOULD STAY VANILLA!!!

She’s annoying!!! Please do research. I think Kate is envy for her friend’s lifestyle. I remember Banner said she’s a cock tease. Yep! IMO, she’s trying BDSM because her-so-boring life and job and alone + desperately need to get laid. She’s too bratty and disrespectful and please, don’t blame your feminist side. Poor Banner has been pussy whipped by Kate and can’t thinking about her. Even he is in denial, he keep throwing Kate around to find the ‘right Dom’ because Banner want a slave, and Kate isn’t the same boat with him. I don’t know about him wanting a slave for what purpose? Banner always say he is a Sadist, but… *cricket* NOTHING! The BDSM and D/s relationship in this book should be in question. Is it for fun because they both just kinky or lifestyle?

Overall, the writing is fine. The sex is okay, not kinky but no chemistry. The chemistry is too rushed. The story line is kinda cheesy like others romantic thingy. The man keep pushing the woman until he realize that she’s the one and HEA. It’s not mind blowing but make me yawning and have the urge to finish it ASAP. Such a disappointment and it’s not work for me. Maybe you? *However, i will wait for Ambrose and Konstantin’s story.*

Book Review: Craving Flight by Tamsen Parker

Tzipporah Berger is thirty-seven and single, which is practically unheard of in the Orthodox Jewish community she now calls home. Her increasing religiosity and need for kink may have broken up her first marriage, but she’s decided it’s time to try again. And the rabbi’s wife has just the man in mind.

Elan Klein is the neighborhood butcher whose intimidating size and gruff manner hint at a deliciously forceful personality. But BDSM isn’t exactly something you discuss during an Orthodox courtship. Will a marriage to Elan solidify her place in the community that she loves and provide the domination and pain Tzipporah craves or will she forever have to rely on flights of fancy to satisfy her needs?

**Please note, CRAVING FLIGHT is a 37,000 word novella. This ebook also contains a sample chapter from PERSONAL GEOGRAPHY**

description

“… Out there, we live as a man and wife, as equals. In here, though… this is a different matter. We’ll have our own little contract that says you’ve signed yourself over to me and my wished. You’re going to call me master.”

I really wanna cry. I mean, positive cry. Craving Flight was very unique kind of erotica that I’ve never read before. Written beautifully and tormented my inner bitch. Poetic words and flowed nicely. Part of the religious side was really surprised me. I thought i was insane for a moment. I just couldn’t wrap the Orthodox Jew in my mind with this story. Tamsen Parker really bring a whole new level kink mixed with religious background. There is many rules and i don’t think i can follow it. LOL

“I’m going to silence all that noise. The only things you’re going to be thinking of is me. Your only concern is pleasing me. Do you understand?”
“Yes, master.”

Through some tradition, Tziporrah and Elan met several times and married. Their connection feel so raw. Tziporrah has kinky side that needs to be hurt when having sex. Surprisingly, Elan has no problem with it. They live their lives like usual in the outside. I loved how they respect her in any aspect. But in bedroom, Elan has full control and always in command. Even they don’t have label as BDSM, it feels so different.There is no Dominant or submissive but their vibe and chemistry told otherwise.

“Stay still. You’re mine to do with as I please and I want you to keep your hands above your head. And don’t close your legs. Open for me. Always open for me.”

Even Craving Flight is a light novel, it was emotional, intense yet erotic. It makes me think even we’re religious people, our bedroom is still could have different taste. Whether you’re kinky or not. I loved their journey in so many forms even the hardest part. Their sex scenes felt so erotic yet soothing, not dictated. There is no rush and it was very sexy and enjoyable.

I wouldn’t categorize Craving Flight as romantic story because they have some unfinished business. There is lack of communication between them outside the bedroom. They never talk about their feeling towards each other. Their marrige is liked based on respect and religious aspect. I don’t think it was love and affection. And, i still curious about how Elan know all of this kinky shit? :p So, is it a happily ever after? For me, it’s a just fresh start for Tziporrah and Elan. They still have long journey to express their love for each other.
