Favorite Dark & Dirty Reads

WARNING: None of the books listed are safe to read without several pairs of clean panties and a jumbo size package of batteries.  Please be aware that the listed books are not for everyone, if you thought 50 Shades of Grey was hardcore, most, if not all, may make you uncomfortable.  These are my guilty pleasure books that I thank the inventor of the Kindle everyday for, so no one has to see just how kinky I am sometimes.  Happy Reading!

CaptiveInTheDark Very Dark & Dirty

The Dark Duet Series by CJ Roberts.  One of the best captive series I’ve ever read.  CJ Roberts has a wicked mind to have come up with this.

NeverHaveIEver

Slightly Dark & A Touch Dirty

Never Have I Ever by August Clearwing.  The title is a game played at a party, where the main character reveals a dark desire.  Very hot rape fantasy scene, as well as some BDSM.  Don’t worry all is consensual!

BluebeardsWife2 Super Sexy Dirty

Bluebeard’s Wife by Selena Kitt.  Selena Kitt is the QUEEN of hot and filthy.  It was difficult to pick just one for this list, I chose this one because it has a little bit of everything.  I would recommend any of her books if you’re in the mood for some major smut.  Some are short, but all are hot…I’ve read every single one of her books.

SlaveIslandMostly Dark, but definitely dirty too.

Slave Island by Claire Thompson.  Hmm, what to say without giving things away?  If you like captive fantasies, this is a really good one.  I’m slowly making my way through some others, Claire Thompson has a definite flair to her writing style.

9780778313533_smp.inddCrazy Dark & Sexy Dirty

The Siren (The Original Sinners) by Tiffany Reisz.  This is the first in a phenomenal series.  When I hit the end of this one, I just sat and stared off into space for a few minutes because I was completely blown away.

IntensePassionsDirty & Potentially Dark

Intense Passions by Kalen Laurel.  This one definitely lived up to its title.  Fair warning, it has a cliffhanger, but it was so well written, I didn’t even mind.  Desperate to read the next one!

Taboo Taboo Dirty

Taboo Erotica Volume 1 by Angel Wild.  So taboo, Amazon filters and they are difficult to find.  For when you’re in the mood for serious kink.  Don’t worry, I won’t tell anyone.

TheClaimingOfSleepingBeautyKinky Dirty

The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty by A.N. Roquelaure.  What would a dark and dirty list be without this series included?  A smokin’ hot take on the Sleeping Beauty tale.  I’m pretty sure both Disney and the brothers Grimm would not approve.

That’s it for now.  I was getting seriously hot and bothered running back through my book archive and I just couldn’t take it anymore.  ❤ Lorraine

Favorite Menage & M/M

I love all kinds of smut, but I get a special kind of tingle from same sex and multiple partner reads. The frustrating thing is that while same sex reads are easy to find, finding one that isn’t ridiculously cheesy is not. Finding a decent ménage story is even more frustrating. Don’t worry though, I’ve come across some super hot ones that I loved! They are not in any particular order, I’m pretty sure I’d be working on this list until this time next year if I had to choose.

ColtersWoman   M/F/M/M

Colters’ Woman by Maya Banks. Totally embarrassed to admit this, but my Mom is the one who told me about this book. I, of course, scoffed and told her I would never read anything like that…five minutes later I had downloaded it to my kindle. Very hot and it had an actual plot too! FYI, it’s three brothers, so no hanky panky between the men.

Colters LadyM/F/M/M

Colters’ Lady by Maya Banks. This was a great follow up to Colters’ Woman, about the three sons of the original Colters. Just as hot, and thankfully not a repeat of the plot in the first one.

Unburdened M/F/M

Unburdened by Bethany Bazile. Two rock gods and one woman, do I need to say more?

M/M/FLoveSlaveForTwo

Love Slave For Two by Tymber Dalton. Nobody, and I mean NOBODY does same sex or menage like Tymber Dalton. This is the first in a series that follows the same characters throughout, but there are NO cliffhangers, and the whole series is awesome.

Stoneface M/M/F

Stoneface by Tymber Dalton. This one has it all. M/M, M/F/M, M/M/F, and oh yeah, there’s a story mixed in with all that sex. A really good one at that.  It’s Tymber Dalton, that’s all I need to know!

M/F/M

I just discovered Sophie Oak, so I haven’t worked my way through all of them yet, but both the Texas Sirens Series and the Nights in Bliss Colorado Series are so far incredible!  Lots of M/F/M, some hints of M/M/F with promise of more in future books.  There was even some BDSM thrown in for shits and giggles too!

M/F/M/M

Shayla Black:  I’ve been struggling to pick my favorite menage story by her….I just can’t!!!  I narrowed it down to the Masters Of Menage Series, please just go freaking read it and drop me a comment about your favorite so I can decide.

ATableForThreeM/F/M

A Table For Three by Lainey Reese.  This is actually the first menage book I ever read, so it forever holds a place in my kink drawer.  This is the first in the New York Series, all of which were phenomenal.  I carefully watch for new releases from her and they always go to the top of my TBR.

MeetTheBaumgartners2 F/F/M

Meet The Baumgartners by Selena Kitt.  I have no idea which number in the series this one is and I’m not even sure it’s the hottest, but it’s the first one I read by her.  It was nice to get some girl on girl action for a change as it’s difficult to find anything decent in that genre.  The whole Baumgartner Series is sizzling hot, make sure to buy fresh batteries before starting though.

TryM/M

Try by Ella Frank.  Seriously, THE hottest M/M I’ve ever read.  I cannot wait until the second in the series is released.  If you like M/M, you NEED to read this one.

MoreThanMakeBelieveM/M

More Thank Make Believe by Tymber Dalton.  Yes, I know I’m repeating myself, but really, it’s Tymber Dalton.  This one is a straight college boy  who gets into gay porn to make extra money and falls for his co-star.  Mmmmmm.

KeepingSweetsM/M

Keeping Sweets by Cate Ashood.  Ok, so it’s another college boy getting involved with gay porn and falling for his co-star, but definitely a good one.  I haven’t had a chance to read others by her, but I’m planning on it after this one.

TakeTheShotM/M

Take The Shot by Missy Welsh.  Yes, I know, it has the cheesiest book cover ever, and I probably would not have bought this one if I had seen that beforehand.  So, I’m glad I didn’t, because this was a great coming out kind of M/M with some incredibly hot sex scenes.

TheDistanceBetweenUsM/M/M

The Distance Between Us by L.A. Witt.  Loved this one!  Two men that broke up after years together are stuck in a house they can’t sell.  They decide to get a roomate: a young hot, also gay, roommate.  First in a series, the second book was just as good, third is not out yet, but I’ll be reading it for sure!

That’s all for now chickies, by no means all that I’ve read, just a few of my faves to wet your appetite.  I’m always looking for new ones too, so let me know what’s worth grabbing!

5 out of 5

Okay, so first thoughts for this book are basically it’s going to be a typical mills and boon romance about pirates.  Oh, how wrong was I! I instantly fell in love with this book and the characters. It’s funny, scary, heartwarming and heartbreaking, to say the least. Yes, at times you just wanna smack Hendrix upside the head, but at other times you just want to give him a cuddle. Oh, and the sex, oh my the sexy scenes, let’s just say that you will certainly get very steamy and extremely hot (if you catch my drift). He’s sexy, controlling, and won’t take no for an answer but you just can’t help but fall in love with him. And when he calls her “inocencia” you just can’t help but swoon. Then there’s Indigo. She’s had a hard time of it recently and when she meets Hendrix you just know things are definitely not going to be any easier.  In short, this book was well written and well thought out, an absolute joy to read and I can’t wait for the next book in the series.

Favourite lines
“Why can’t a pirate watch a horror film?
He shakes his head, smirking. “You’re about to tell me.”
“Because it’s rated arrrrrrrrrr.”

“Why do pirates wear eye patches?”
“Because they can’t afford iPads.”

3.5 out of 5

Finally, a new premise for a romance novel. Pirates. And not Jack Sparrow pirates, but modern day pirates. Yes, they’re real. Our heroine, Indigo (coolest name ever), in Enslaved by the Ocean runs from one trouble right into more trouble at the hands of pirates and what ensues was fun and sexy to read. Hendrix, our pirate Hero, is rugged and oh so yummy! I am still not sure what exactly he does as a pirate. He’s not a drug runner or a human trafficker, but he sure is a bad ass. But at the end of the day, who cares what he does? He’s hot and seems to have the best of intentions with each decision laid before him. And Indigo loves him and finds the fresh start she was looking for.

I enjoyed Enslaved by the Ocean. The characters were great. The dialogue quick and witty. The pacing was fast. This was a very short read for me. The sexy times were erotic and left me panting. Bella Jewel won our hearts with the MC Sinners series and her unique writing style continues in this new series. Yes, I said series. Bella will be giving us more yummy pirate goodness to drool over in Where Darkness Lies, which will be the second book in the Criminals of the Ocean series. I will be reading it. I need to know what happens after that bombshell of an epilogue.

From the first word to the last, Bella Jewel’s Enslaved by the Ocean, will captivate your attention. Struggling through a whirl wind of unexpected life changes, broken dreams, and regretful lust, the heroine Indigo hasn’t had an easy life. But unlike most heroines she doesn’t find happily ever after the conventional way, because Captain Hendrix is anything but conventional. I mean, what would you expect from a pirate? And poor Indie forced to make difficult decisions to keep her life and her heart safe, decisions that would break the average person. Thankfully everything turns around semi in her favor and we aren’t left with a giant cliff hanger. The entire concept was definitely refreshing but I felt rushed through the entire book. The major plot lines were glossed over and I didn’t have a chance to develop a strong connection to the characters like I wanted too. The sexy times were completely juvenile for my taste as well, and to be honest I skimmed over most of them. I’m still giving it a 4 because the plot line is extremely interesting and it is a really good book. The story just feels really incomplete, and yes there is a sequel about two other characters, but I need more. Hendrix is still on my shit-list and I’m not sure I can ever get over his “payment plan. “ (sorry, I don’t give shit away) That’s just kind of big, NOO for me… and he didn’t do anything worth redemption in my opinion. But I’m holding out hope that the sequel will fill me in and bring the story full circle. Until then, I guess Ill have to wait, damn it!

walked into this with pretty high expectations since I’ve read and loved all of Bella Jewel’s MC Sinners series, and I was definitely not disappointed.  I’ve never come across a modern day pirate tale, so I was excited, but still a bit skeptical about whether or not it would be worth reading.

This had everything I love about pirates, and even better, it left out the ripped and busting bodices synonymous with pirate tales.  Enslaved By The Ocean takes everything you’ve ever fantasized about being swept away by a pirate and brings it into this century.  I’m now dying to take a boat ride across the ocean in hopes of being marauded by Hendrix (drool!).

Ooh, I need to shake myself out before I get lost there.  Let’s put aside the pirate factor.  There was a lot to recommend outside of that aspect.  Indigo is an awesome chick.  She was dealt a really shitty hand and was able to persevere.  I love a strong and sassy chick, it makes it so easy to root for them to get their HEA.

Her friend, Eric, is a bit of a douchenozzle but I’m almost glad because I didn’t have to spend a minute hoping that Indigo would get with him.  Jess is a great character as well, major sweetness.  I really hope that one of the stories in this series gives her a chance to shine and get an HEA too.

Overall, this was a great read whether or not you like pirates, and if you’re a Bella Jewel fan this is a must-read!

3.5 out of 5
A modern day pirate saga…  I was curious to see how Bella Jewel could take what I would typically consider a historical plot and make it modern.  And it was a good book, but I was hoping for a little more.  While I connected with Indigo, I felt the initial story and dialogue was a little forced to skip through Indigo’s story, introduce the best friend, Eric, and get straight to the pirate drama.  The pirates were a little cliche, drawing their swords and sailing on a ship with a mermaid on the bow.  But who am I to say what a modern pirate has for weapons and amenities in 2013.  They had guns too and did not hesitate to use them.

And then there is Hendrix.  Hendrix is tough and cruel, and his actions made him all the more believable as a pirate and consequently less likable, at least initially.  I struggled to see what Indigo could be attracted to.  But as the story progressed, the physical connection (and it was steamy!) sparked the emotional one.  The big, bad pirate, did indeed have that protective, caring side I was wondering about, and yes, I liked it.

This book has a lot of what you’d expect from a pirate story – pirate jokes, rum filled nights, tropical islands, and the old pirate crew.  I’m still not sure how a girl goes from life in the city to life with a pirate on the sea, but I’m going to add Where Darkness Lies to my to read pile to hopefully find out.

Synopsis

Indigo is running, she has no other choice. She’s done something bad, and there only way to escape it, is to flee her home, and her country. She sets out on a luxury Yacht, to take her to another country with her best friend Eric. But she runs into a problem.

The Yacht catches fire.

She ends up stranded in the ocean, terrified, and scared of the uncertain. Until they show up. The pirates. Terrified, Indigo and Eric have to face the reality that this might be the end for them. These are pirates, they are the criminals of the ocean. What chance have they got of surviving this nightmare?

Then she lays eyes on Hendrix. He’s the Captain, he’s gorgeous, rugged, and mean. He’s planning on keeping her to repay his debt to another man, by selling her. Now Indigo has a crazy ex after her, as well as a pirate she can’t seem to get out of her head.

Come on this heart wrenching, dark, angsty and dangerous adventure as two people so opposite, find something so beautiful.

Excerpt

“Stand up, this will be easier if you do,” he orders. He stands, taking me with him, and I lose my balance when I accidentally try to lift the wrong foot. Hendrix reaches out, taking my shoulder and goes to take a step forward to steady me, only to realize he’s wrapped the rope around his ankle, and is now tangled too. As if in slow motion, we topple backwards. I scream, and land with a thump on the ground as the ropes surround me. Hendrix lands over me, but manages to put his hand down to stop me taking the force of his body. He’s pressing into me in places he really shouldn’t be.

“Fuck,” he curses, tugging his hand to try and untangle it.

“How the hell did you get tangled too?” I cry out, squirming.

“Stop fuckin’ squirming like that,” he orders, and I stop as soon as I realize why he’s asked me to. He’s hard. My God, he’s hard.

“You’re…you’re…”

“I’m fuckin’ hard because you’re squirming against me. I’m a man. Get over it.”

Blog Tour Review & Excerpt: Pieces For You by Genna Rulon

excerpt

He smelled so damn good, clean with a hint of masculine sweat, a temptation I couldn’t resist.  Beyond my control, my tongue darted out of my mouth and covertly tasted the section of chest exposed above his tank.  Oh God, he tasted even better than he smelled, like a chocolate-covered pretzel—sweet, salty, and addictive.

“Did you just…lick me?” he asked, sounding both shocked and amused.

“I have no idea what you’re talking about.”

“You licked me.  I felt it,” he accused, but I noticed he wasn’t complaining.

“Your imagination is running wild because of all the workout endorphins.”

“It wasn’t a complaint.  In fact, you’re welcome to have another taste.”

“Fine…I licked you.  But it was an involuntary reflex—hot guy, exposed chest…you know how it is.”

“Mmm,” he replied, his eyes darkening with lust.  “I am familiar with the temptation, but it’s not a hot guy who’s testing my self-control…it’s a petite, auburn-haired vixen.”

Pieces For You floored me.  I was really looking forward to reading this after Only For You because Sam’s character was so full of lie and I was very invested in her after the attack, and I knew I wanted her to get her HEA (click here for mine and Mandy’s reviews).  Griffin was also introduced and he made my heart speed up a little.

I got so much more than I was expecting.  I’ve read other stories with rape victims, and more often than not, the “incident” is brushed over and the girl is magically cured and moves on as if nothing happened.  Genna Rulon wrapped her arms around the subject and put me inside Sam’s head and dragged me along through the roller coaster of her healing process.  I cried…I never cry.  Never.  I desperately wanted to take Sam’s pain away.  I was fully invested through every step forward and back she took.

Griffin, sigh, he’s so wonderful.  I want a man like Griffin.  He knew exactly what Sam needed every step of the way to help her through.  He pushed her forward when needed, and stood back ready to catch her if she faltered.

Aside from all of the above, the story was overall well done.  It would have been easy to rely only on the rape and recovery as the only basis for the story, but there was much more involved, but I won’t spoil anything.  This is definitely a must read for anyone!

One last thing:  Rape is a very serious and delicate subject and I applaud Genna Rulon for her skill in the telling of Sam’s story.  To add one more reason to go out and buy this immediately, Genna notates in her acknowledgements that part of the proceeds will go to RAINN (Rape Abuse and Incest National Network).  If you would like to learn more or show your support: www.rainn.org.

The prologue of this book actually made mean old me tear up. I identified with Sam on so many levels in this book. Her pain and her strength were awe inspiring. Genna Rulon did a phenomenal job at capturing  the emotions and the healing process. She surreptitiously gave a lot of fantastic and absolutely true information about rape survivors, their feelings, and how it effects not only the survivor, but their loved ones as well.

But don’t think this book is morose and sad. It’s not. It’s about healing and falling in love. It’s about the bonds of friendship. And it’s just as witty and fun as Only For You. With a heaping pile of deep emotions and a beautiful and overdue love story.

Sam’s coolness was solidified in Only For You and once she gets her healing on in Pieces For You, she is back and just as fun and awesome as before. But better because she has Griffin. And Griffin is definitely her other half. Griffin is perfect. I honestly can’t think of a negative thing to say about him. I was already swooning for him by 19% in, but then at 20% Genna gives us the first bit from Griffin’s point of view and if he wasn’t the perfect partner for Sam, I would fight and cut a bitch for him. He’s that yummy.

Pieces For You is stellar. A must read. Not a single complaint. Well written, great characters, well paced, interesting plot. Hot sexy times. It truly has it all. Go read it!!!! NOW!!

excerpt

 

I was waiting for Griff to exit the men’s locker room when a gym rat approached me from behind, nearly causing me to wet my pants when I discovered his body within inches of mine.  He leaned against the wall next to me with his arm resting above my head.  I felt caged and uneasy.

“Hey sexy, haven’t seen you here before.  Need me to show you how it’s done?  I know the manager—I can hook you up with a free month…in exchange for dinner?”

I was about to—I didn’t know what—run, scream, panic, tell him I wasn’t interested in his ‘free month’ if he was the last man on earth.  Then I heard it—a growl.  A deep menacing growl was coming from behind me, about a foot and a half above my head.  I slapped my hand over my mouth to stifle my snicker.

I couldn’t see Griffin and he didn’t say a word, but whatever his body language communicated, the dumbass in front of me clearly got the message because he turned tail and left, practically running.

I spun, hoping to catch a glimpse of ‘scary Griffin,’ but his face was devoid of all emotions, his eyes tracking my visitor’s departure.

“Excuse me,” I said to capture his attention.  “Did I just hear you growl at that moron, or am I hallucinating now, too?”

“I didn’t growl, it was a deep exhale.”

“Oh, an audible exhale that reverberated in your chest…like a growl,” I said before dissolving into giggles.

“I love that sound—you laughing.”

“Should I start calling you ‘Tony the Tiger’ now?  Wait…how about ‘Harry the Hippo’?”

“Hippos do not growl.”

“They absolutely do!  I took a zoology class for my science requirement sophomore year, and hippopotamuses, my growly friend, most definitely growl.”

“If I growled—and I admit nothing—but if I did, it was not a damn hippopotamus growl.  It was a tiger growl…no, a bear…I want to be a bear.”

“Alright, Yogi it is.  Come on, my furry friend, you promised me dinner.”

“Despite your torment, I do keep my promises.  Let’s go.”

“Do you have the picnic baskets in the car?” I teased, enjoying watching him squirm.

“No picnic baskets, I’m afraid.”

“Oh, is Boo-Boo bringing them?”

excerpt

 

In a classic male move, he grabbed the bottom of his tank and lifted it to wipe the dampness from his face.  My ravenous eyes snapped to his stomach.  I was greeted by one, two, three…eight, eight perfectly chiseled abdominal muscles.  The elusive eight-pack—I had heard rumors of its existence, seen pictures even, but I’d never encountered the phenomenon in person.  I reached up and pinched my arm to ensure I was not dreaming.  Ouch!  Nope, not dreaming.  My fingertips itched to touch him, to trace each and every line and crevice—suddenly a black wall of cotton obstructed my view.  Son of a bitch, it was criminal.  The man should not be allowed to wear a shirt…ever.
