Gritting her teeth Jenny grimaced and gave him what he wanted; the lewd sight of her backside jiggling this way and that as he continued to spank it. His hand now felt like sandpaper on the sensitised flesh. How much longer would she have to endure this? The clamps continued to bite into her tender nipples, and as she swayed to and fro she could feel them moving with her, the ache increasing with each passing second…

If Jenny thought life was hard under the expert tutelage of Mark, being faced with a stable full of sex-starved pony girls poses several more challenges. For instance, how do you bring eleven young women to orgasm in a timely fashion? But to her surprise, tackling the problem with experimentation and enthusiasm, she finds herself enjoying the experience.

When training begins it is anything but enjoyable, however. Harnessed in pony girl tack, her body is encircled with leather, rubber and steel. It nips, chafes and rubs cruelly, especially when she’s faced with a morning of naughty games in the exercise yard.

In Book Four of Pony Tales Jenny earns herself several punishments, and is subjected to some very thorough sex indoctrination she has to submit to the whims of her groom, trainers and even the stable-hands. Will rescue arrive or will she have to beg to be released, with nothing more than her body as currency?

C.P. Mandara – Hot to Trot (Review & Excerpt)

Hot to Trot by C.P. Mandara

My Rating: 4.5 of 5 Stars

The viciously attractive Mark, with the unfaltering smile, has a day of endurance planned for Jenny that the devil himself would find challenging. His artful temperature play has her screaming, his anal dilators have her howling and a ride in the sybian’s saddle leaves her virtually unconscious, but the day is far from over. A group of ladies, with wandering fingers, are given the task of transforming Jenny into a sweet, submissive little pony who will be left looking ‘hot to trot’ in no time at all.

After an exhausting day of training, Jenny has only escape or rescue on her mind. Alas, escape is rather difficult when you’re naked, dressed in thigh high pony boots and have your hands immobilised in leather mittens which are clipped behind your back. Besides, escape isn’t all that important – not when you’re desperate for your next orgasm, it isn’t.

My Rating: 4.5 of 5 Stars

In Book Two of Pony Tales, Jenny finds herself in the capable hands of Mark, her guide and tormentor for the day. She becomes accomplished in the art of crawling, gets an eye-opening tour of the facility and suffers regularly with the pain of orgasm denial. Finding herself at the mercy of his fingertips, when he demonstrates the complexities of breath play, she panics that each gasp of air may be her last.

Displayed, touched, fondled and at the mercy of others, Jenny begins to discover what life as a pony girl might entail, especially when faced with the wicked tongues of several pony boys! Getting acquainted with the rather aptly named Red Room and finding herself subject to a thorough spanking is her first discovery into the delicious world of pain and pleasure that awaits her.

But there are far more devilish torments than spanking to be found at the Albrecht stables…

K. Bromberg – UnRaveled

UnRaveledUnRaveled by K. Bromberg

Source: Personal Library
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

UnRaveled is a darker erotic novella that is not suitable for people sensitive to non-consensual sex. This is a story about a stale marriage and the couple’s unconvential attempt to find that spark again.

This novella was originally released as part of the Erotica Consortium’s anthology – BEND.

One night.
One mistake.
Filled with fear.
Sated by pleasure.
Robbed of control.
Blindfolded and bound.
Shamed she liked it.
Doomed to want it.
Limits tested.
Boundaries pushed.
Desire awakened.
Inhibition unleashed.
An identity unraveled.
Lives changed forever.

An Erotic Abduction Fantasy for your steamy pleasure:

(BEWARE OF SPOILERS)

“I’m going to fuck you. By the time I’m done, you’ll beg me to keep going. Then you’ll beg me to stop. Regardless, you’ll take what I give you – all of it – and you’ll enjoy every single fucking moment of it. And Marco is going to watch. Understood?”

This short story has themes which many find objectionable – I’m not one of them, but I feel obligated to warn you of the contents:
– Abduction
– Non/Dubious Consent
– Forced Infidelity
– BDSM Sexual Situations

Left alone on what should have been the romantic Tenth Wedding Anniversary vacation of her dreams, Lil is mourning the loss of sexual satisfaction in her marriage.

While drinking in a bar, her eyes meet those of a mysterious stranger, and the consequences of that one glance have a ripple effect which will change her life forever.

Lil is drugged by this stranger and wakes blindfolded, chained to a bed, & naked…

The kinky details:

– Blindfolds
– Ball-Gags
– Shackles
– Chains
– Hot Wax
– Floggers
– Butt Plugs
– Forced Exhibitionism
– Double-Penetration

…The real story is that Lil must to grips with the fact that on some level she ENJOYS what is happening to her.

How can I find pleasure from this man who is holding me against my will?

I must admit that I do love a good abduction fantasy…

On a side note:
The saving grace for this story in the eyes and minds of the squeamish Erotica reader might be the twist at the end…
But is was an easy conclusion that Anderson had orchestrated the elaborate abduction/seduction, and that he was the mysterious voyeur present…

This story might not be for general audiences, but I certainly enjoyed it, and it set the tone for things to come…

I read this book as part of the Bend Anthology which features some of the most talented authors currently working in Modern Romance.

As of the date of this review, the book has been banned by Amazon…

The First Season of the Flesh Cartel is one of the darkest, most twisted and terrifying openings for any series I’ve read. That’s not hyperbole. That’s fact.

This is a collection of the first two episodes of this series:
The Flesh Cartel #1: Capture & The Flesh Cartel #2: Auction

Brothers.
Mat is a MMA fighter.
Dougie is a PHD student.
They were struggling to keep their heads above water, and now they’re fighting for their lives. Ripped from their home by a group of strangers and forced to endure a series of unspeakable acts… Forced to watch each other suffer…

But Why?

I do not know what this series holds for Dougie & Mat, but let me be clear:
This is not BDSM Romance,
This is not MM Romance,
This is not Stockholm Syndrome disguised as Romance.

He almost whimpered Don’t hurt me again, but managed to bite it back. Like it’d mattered worth a damn anyway. Hadn’t yet. They actually seemed to like it when he begged.


The Flesh Cartel #2  Auction by Rachel Haimowitz

Brothers Mat & Dougie survived a week in the brutal hands of their captors. Can they possibly survive what comes next? What lengths will they go to in order to survive?

The purpose behind the kidnapping and incarceration of the brothers finally becomes clear – they are to auctioned off as pets to the highest bidder.

Worn down by days of unrelenting fear and abuse, Mat and Dougie are packaged with the same ruthless efficiency as any consumer product: Dougie the pretty boy twink, Mat the rabid pit bull. They are led to the auction block as the showpiece of the house’s collection.

Trapped in adjacent cells awaiting their fate, the brothers are achingly close – close enough to hear the other’s tortured moans – yet unable to see or comfort one another.

While Mat clings to the strength and endurance earned in this MMA training, Dougie is despairing only a few feet away.
Helpless…
Broken…

Will the brothers ever be able to escape this hell?
And will the ever be the same if they do?

Mat would rather be beaten to death than play the role of obedient slave for sale, but Dougie, desperate not to be separated from his brother, strikes a deal with the pitiless Madame who runs the auction house and controls both their fates. It might just be enough to keep them together – slaves, but together – assuming Mat even wants to be after Dougie fulfills his end of his with the devil.

Each time I finish one of the Flesh Cartel episodes I find myself at a precipice…

Do I continue down this dark and twisted path to satisfy my curiosity? Can I possibly handle the increasing brutality which Mat and Dougie have been forced to endure? Because one thing is for sure – there is no light at the end of the tunnel for these brothers.

This is a thrilling, terrifying tale packed into an unassumingly small package…
And I can’t wait to go back for more…

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

In episode two of The Flesh Cartel, the dark purpose behind Mat and Dougie Carmichael’s abduction is revealed. Though Dougie is protected from the worst of the guards’ brutality, he’s disgusted to find himself halfway to broken—despairing of escape and terrified of pain. Mat holds onto hope despite repeated rapes and beatings, but threats toward his brother teach him well to lay aside his pride and pick his battles carefully.

Worn down by days of unrelenting fear and abuse, Mat and Dougie are packaged and marketed with the same ruthless efficiency as any consumer product: Dougie the prettyboy twink, Mat the rabid pit bull. They are led to the auction block as the showpiece of the house’s collection.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

In this first installment of the exciting new psychosexual thriller, The Flesh Cartel, orphaned brothers Mat and Dougie Carmichael are stolen in the night from their own home. Taken to a horrifying processing facility, they are assessed, microchipped, and subjected to unspeakable brutality—all in preparation for sale to the highest bidder.

In a world where every person has a price, the beautiful and subduable PhD student Dougie is highly prized. His brother, a rough-edged MMA fighter, is less desirable—and potentially too dangerous—but he still has his own appeal.

Abused and locked up under round the clock surveillance, with no idea where they are or even why they’ve been taken, escape seems impossible, which leaves staying together their only hope. And after being separated once by the foster system, they’ll do anything to keep it from happening again. Anything at all.

(Publisher’s note: This title contains material some may find objectionable or trigger-inducing, including explicit violence, non-consent, and forced incest.)

Ella Dominguez – The Art of D/s Trilogy

The Art of D/s Trilogy (The Art of D/s, #1-3)The Art of D/s Trilogy by Ella Dominguez

Series: The Art of D/s
Source: Personal Library
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Complete Trilogy:
The Art of Submission
The Art of Domination
The Art of Control

Approximately 315K words. Contains moderate BDSM themes, detailed sexual encounters including oral and anal sex, total power exchange, mild edge play/blood play, and is intended for mature audiences and readers 18+. Not for the fainthearted or closed-minded individuals.

Romantic, erotic, deeply emotional, suspenseful and humorous.

Isabel is a shy artist with an abusive past who has a very vivid fantasy life and unexplored unusual sexual tastes. When her very private and naughty-natured artwork is sold without her permission, she sets out to try and retrieve her precious paintings, unaware that the buyer has dark sexual tendencies.

Dylan Young is an eccentric businessman and art collector with very specific tastes in women and sex, and serious trust issues. When he comes upon a very erotic set of paintings, he purchases them and they ignite a want and need for the alternative lifestyle he was forced to give up.

When the two meet, Dylan immediately picks up on Isabel’s submissive nature and hatches a wicked plan to teach Isabel about his alternative lifestyle. He wants nothing more than to get his hands on more of her paintings and to dominate the submissive beauty.

Their affair is intensely physical and despite Dylan’s wanting only a sexual relationship with distinct boundaries, he can’t resist her spirited nature, her eagerness and lack of fear to learn BDSM, and most of all – her immense talent. But Isabel has a hidden dominant streak of her own that only Dylan brings out and as they’re drawn closer together, their unconventional relationship is threatened as they each struggle with their pasts and for control.

This is the tale of their love for each other, their unbreakable bond, and their trials in a world that offers nothing but obstacles. This is the saga of two dynamic characters whose personalities collide as they struggle with their dominant and submissive tendencies and seek control in all things as their pasts come back to haunt them in spectacular fashion.

This Erotic Trilogy packs a punch – Ella Dominguez has balanced panty-melting Erotica with an intriguing and thought-provoking storyline…

I’d like to share my overall impressions of this series, then encourage you to visit the links at the end of this post for the full reviews on each book…

To start with, the erotic element in these books is as beautifully written as it is sinfully hot… The BDSM inclusion becomes progressively more intense as the series continues, but never becomes more than the seasoned reader can handle…

The infusion of humor keeps the whole series grounded…

On a more serious note, we learn why the characters have come to embrace the BDSM lifestyle in each of their lives, and how their pasts have shaped their worldview. The whole Trilogy has a fascinating focus on the theme of control… Dylan and Isa each have their motives which necessitate their desire to take control sexually.

This is the first series I’ve read where we have a true Switch – someone who fully embraces the role of Dominant or submissive depending on the scene. Occasionally I read a story where the submissive turns the tables for a single scene, but the characters in the D/s Trilogy are in a relationship which allows both partners to take on the role of Top on a fairly regular basis. This adds a unique element to their dynamic, as well as their personalities. Neither character sits firmly in their established role. They are growing into their relationship together.

The inclusion of the mesmerizing artwork (from artist, Rebekka Ivacson) enhances the story and gives insight into Isa’s personality. After all, Isa is an artist, so her artwork represents a window into her tortured soul…
