A little something to heat up your summer…

Sure, elements of Romance can add warmth to Erotic adventures, but the Kept series is hot enough on it’s own… Nothing deep, nothing poignant, not a lot of emotion… Just a collection of sexy stories written from the perspective of Casey, a nineteen year old college studied discovering her desire for rough sex…


Book 1 – Kept: I’ve become his dirty little secret

Holy hotness batman!


Casey has been lusting after her next door neighbor since she hit puberty… Sitting under his (conspicuously open) window as he has his way with whatever woman he’s brought home for the night.

Now she’s a nineteen year old college student, and though she still steals away under Mr. Davis’s window, she’s also being dragged to bars by her best friend Sarah.

One such adventure with Sarah leads to a wild night of group sex which Casey will never forget.
We’re talking:
Billionaires,
Double Penetration,
Foursome (mffm)…

After all that, Casey is no longer content to stay on the sidelines listening to Mr. Davis. She’s determined to find out what happens on the other side of the window…

Everything moved quickly in this story. It was fast and hot, and I’m surprised so much sex was packed into a mere 18 pages!

Additional Details:
Light BDSM,
Domination,
Orgasm Denial,
& Voyeurism…


Book 2 – Taken: I Am His Dirty Little Secret

There’s no going back now…

I still occasionally sat below his window wondering if he knew I was there or not, pleasing myself as he used each of them to satisfy his own desires. I craved to be back in that chair again, trembling by his hand.

Casey was left reeling after her night with Mr. Davis – her demanding neighbor used and debased her to satisfy his own lust. She tried staying away, tried ignoring him, tried turning a blind eye to the parade of women Mr. Davis is still bringing home…

But it wasn’t long before she started sitting under that window again…
Craving to be used once more…

This installment of the Kept series includes the following elements:
Voyeurism,
Masturbation,
Orgasm denial,
Light BDSM,
Domination,
Sex in public,
Light bondage,
& consensual rape fantasy


Book 3 – Controlled: And Used To Please

With friends like these…

The part of me that enjoyed being used also wanted to be desired, and clearly, I wasn’t.

Casey is far from done reaping all the benefits of Mr. Davis – her sexually aggressive neighbor has awakened a flood of desire within her and she’s done trying to fight the pull.

She decides to take the bull by the horns – or her neighbor by the cock – and become the aggressor. It becomes clear that Mr. Davis has enjoyed his interludes with Casey but he has no desire to pursue her in any way.

She makes a plan:
– be irresistible
– knock on his door
– walk right into his clutches
– have wild kinky sex
– repeat as necessary

I would go over to his place and initiate what I had dubbed Mission: Get fucked.

Mr. Davis shuts the door in her face.

Over the next few weeks Casey pretends she isn’t mourning the loss of his touch while watching him bring home new women each night…
She’s not sitting under his window anymore…
She doesn’t care anymore…

Until one night Mr. Davis brings home Sarah, Casey’s best friend…

This installment includes:
Fantasy Masturbation,
Voyeurism,
Light Domination,
FFM Threesome,
& Orgasm Denial

Book 4 – Released: To Make My Own Dirty Little Secrets…

A naughty finale befitting this sexy little series

This time there would be no rejection.

Well… I say finale… but who knows? This could be the beginning of a brand-new journey for little Casey…

In one of the first moments of actual plot in this series (grasp!) We discover that Casey does not have the grades necessary to make it into Med School. She’s decided to embark on a new adventure – one which promises to take her to Europe…

She says goodbye to her family, friends, various sexual conquests, and gives an epic ‘farewell’ to Mr. Davis…

She hops on a plane for France to start her new life abroad.

…the French accent made things far too easy for the guys here. That is, if they wanted to make a move on me.

Unfortunately (Well, fortunately for us) old habits die hard, and it’s not long before Casey finds some kinky Frenchmen to indulge in…

The real question: Can Casey find love in the midst of all this hot sex?

In this installment of the Kept Series:
Light BDSM,
Spanking,
Bondage,
Domination,
MMFM Foursome,
Orgasm Denial,
Voyeurism,
Exhibitionism,
& Double Penetration…

Interview with Jamie Fuchs

If you were to describe your book in only one word, what would it be?
Dirty.

What would you say inspired you to write it?
I was driving home after a long day at work and I wasn’t in the best mood. The book was supposed to be a lot darker than what it turned out to be (hence the title of “kept”), however I didn’t have it in me to finish it like that the next day. 😛

What was your source of inspiration for Casey?
I’m not really sure actually, she just kind of created herself!

Have you ever lusted after a neighbor like Casey does with Mr. Davis?
I grew up on a farm, I didn’t really have neighbours like this 😛

What was your first Erotica reading experience?
50 Shades, of course!

Have you ever been hit by the infamous “writer’s block”? What did you do to escape it?
Yeah, I’m sure we all get hit with that! I usually just call it a day and go do something else. I’m the type who only writes when the inspiration is strong, I don’t want to end up hating writing!

What is your all time favorite book?
I loved the Harry Potter series growing up! But I might be disillusioned by the awesomeness of a childhood memory.

What made you pick that one above all others?
The late nights constantly flipping pages wondering what was going to happen next.

What’s the longest time you’ve spent working on a project?
On a writing project, two weeks of constant all day writing.

Would you say becoming an author has changed you? In what way?
My writing skills are improving slowly again! Years of the internet and no more schooling slowly chips away at you 😛

Was there ever a time, during your work for the book, when you felt like giving up? What made you change your mind?
Nope! I enjoyed writing this one all the way though 🙂

What does your day-to-day life consist of? What else do you do, aside from writing?
Lately I’ve been putting a lot of time and effort into my website. That’s been my main focus for the last few months. I’m the type who has to finish one project at a time (which sucks too because I have random days where I really want to write!)

How do you deal with bad reviews or acid criticism? What would you advise other authors to that effect?
It doesn’t really bother me. Most negative reviews don’t seem to offer anything constructive, they just wanted to tell me how bad my book was! It’s all opinion, you’ll never find thousands of people with the same opinion.

Do you have any intention of continuing Casey’s adventures?
I do! Eventually. 😛 There are definitely a few other projects I’ll have to write first though.

What do you have stored for us in the future? What are you working on/planning on next, aside this title/series?
I still have a lot of work left on my website that I’d like to complete, however I’m probably going to try getting some more short stories out randomly. “Rebel” was pretty successful as a standalone book, I’ll probably try and serialize that.

What made you decide to become an Author?
Two long distance relationships makes a person pretty good at word sex!

What would you say was the toughest part?
Figuring out the steps required to publishing. You should see my first cover attempt, they’ve come a long way 🙂

Did you hire professionals for editing, cover design, formatting?
Editing for sure, that’s something you can’t teach yourself. No matter how many times you read your own words there’s always something to miss. The other two things I slowly taught myself through trial and error.

How did you decide who to hire, if you worked with pros?
I’m part of a little author group and one of the women there offered to edit a book of mine. I took her up on it and she kicked ass so I stuck with her.

How long did the production part take, from the moment you began working on the manuscript to self-pub to when you hit ‘Publish’?
For short stories it’s usually about four days, for an entire series it can take months (depending on life/work/etc).

Where is your work being distributed, Amazon, B&N, Smashwords, AllRomanceEbooks/Omnilit, some other distributor? How did you decide which one(s) to go with?
Amazon, B&N, Smashwords, iTunes, ARe, Kobo, Google Play, and a few libraries that Smashwords distributes to. I decided on these purely on the recommendations of others.

If you could turn back in time and do things differently, would you? What would you change?
Oh yes, definitely! I spent a lot of time re-working things like formatting, covers, etc. I’d simply go back and do everything right the first time.

FUN FACTS:

If you could wish for any one thing, and it would immediately come true, what would you wish for?
Teleportation would be a pretty cool superpower 😛

If you were stranded on an isolated island, what’s the one thing you’d absolutely wish to have with you?
A Hammock 🙂

Name your favorite fruit.
Peaches!

Coffee or tea?
Tea.

Favorite season?
Summer of course 🙂

How about favorite time of the day?
Evenings just before dark

Were you a boyscout/girlscout?
Nope

Favorite food for breakfast?
Eggs, ham, and cheese on toast.

Latest book you’ve bought and read?
Draw by Cora Brent.

Do you collect things, like stamps, or key chains, or shoes?
Nope

Favorite color, you know you want to tell us!
Yellow

Drama or comedy?
Comedy for sure.

Have a fav quote or personal motto?
My dad got me on this one at a young age:
If you’re going to do something, do it right.

Cats or dogs?
That’s an impossible question!

Dinner by candlelight or a night out clubbing?
Night out 🙂

Do you have a guilty pleasure?
Chips. I’ve been recently informed that you guys in the USA don’t have all dressed ruffles chips, but those are my favourite! I’m sad for you 😦

Favorite Swear Word?
Shit!

L.A. Witt & Aleksandr Voinov – Capture & Surrender

Payoff (Market Garden, #6)Capture & Surrender by L.A. WittAleksandr Voinov
O
Series: Market Garden #5
Source: Review By Request
Copy Received from Publisher
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Ever since his partner died, Frank has resigned himself to staying single. He wards off the loneliness by spending time with friends on the paintball field and running his high-end brothel, the Market Garden.

After one of his most lucrative rentboys quits, Frank is thrilled when a gorgeous replacement walks through the door. A former US soldier, Stefan is hot, bold, and perfect for the Market Garden’s clientele, especially those with a thing for camouflage and drill sergeants. He’s perfect for Frank, too, except Frank has a rule about not getting involved with his own rentboys.

During a frisky game of paintball, Stefan makes it clear that he doesn’t care about the rules. Not the rules of the game, and definitely not Frank’s refusal to get involved. He captures Frank on the field using stealth and cunning, and makes it clear that he’ll do anything to keep a hold of him off the field too.

Star_full48Star_full48Star_full48Star_full48Star_full48

Market Garden gets serious with the fifth installment.

(BEWARE OF SPOILERS)

…everything about this seemed like a recipe for disaster.

But even if he was headed for the mother of all car crashes, he couldn’t bring himself to hit the brake with everything he had, not for his sake, not for Brandon’s sake, or Market Garden’s, or sanity, or morality, or because it wasn’t fair or even very balanced.

Seemed all he could do was grip the steering wheel and keep going until something stopped him.

We’re talking about heavy emotion and serious subjects with this one…

There’s still plenty of kinky fun going on in Capture & Surrender (more on that later) but this one packs on content and emotion unseen in the previous titles in this series… And I ate up every page.

As a side note – this book was nominated for a Lambda Literary Award, and it is well deserved.

FRANK

That silent companionship was as important as the scorching sex, maybe more important in the long run. He could relax with Brandon in his life, and that gratitude was so deep it nearly brought tears to his eyes.

Frank is the owner of Market Garden. He is surrounded by London’s top-shelf Rent Boys, yet he goes home alone each night…

BRANDON

Brandon grinned at him, and every time he did that, something shifted inside Frank, some weight, or maybe his heart, or his whole damn collection of organs swapped places.

Brandon (aka Stefan) is an American who came to London to escape his past. As an ex-military man with a cocky personality, he pushes all of franks buttons…

But Frank doesn’t get involved with Rent Boys…

He has his reasons:
The main issue being addressed here is that Frank, is HIV positive. He watched his partner die from the disease, and his accounts of that are tragic beyond belief. Completely heart-wrenching.

Frank didn’t want Brandon to suffer so much that the final drawn-out tone on Frank’s ECG monitor would be welcomed.

With that in mind, the courtship of Frank & Brandon goes beyond the standard taboos they would have faced:

Employer / Employee
Older / Younger
John / Rentboy

…because status had to be disclosed.
Decisions had to be made.

How much were they willing to risk?

This was a level of intense emotion which took me by surprise at first. Market Garden hadn’t really addressed any potential relationship drama outside the john / Rent Boy dynamic… But I’m so glad L.A. Witt & Aleksandr Voinov took a chance and addressed some rough issues. It was emotional, beautiful, and completely worth reading.

*clears throat*

In lighter news…

The Kinky paint-ball games were wonderfully sexy and inventive!

“It’s essentially capture kink.”

Stefan’s eyes were bright.

Frank went on. “Basically, you capture someone on the field, he’s yours. Capture a team’s flag? Your team gets the spoils.”

“Spoils of war.” Stefan beamed. “I like it.”

“Figured you might.”

That’s right, to the victor goes the kinky sex!

There’s the requisite safe-words, etc, and Frank and his buddies referee the players… But it made for some seriously hot interactions between players hooped up on adrenaline and testosterone.

They should really sell spectator tickets…
Just sayin’

In addition, I loved the boisterous friendship between Frank, Emily, Geoff, & Mike.

Emily pointed a finely manicured nail at Brandon. “You, sir, are encouraging them.”

“Me?” Brandon showed his palms. “I was merely suggesting we pay homage to God and thank Him for all the food and wine and company. And stuff.”

“Uh-uh.” She shook her head once. “I paid for this stuff and turned it into something presentable and edible. You say grace to anyone, it’s Saint Emily O’Malley of the Sisters of Infinite Patience with Obnoxious Men.”

“That’s a bit of a mouthful, darling.” Mike straightened his napkin.

“That’s what she said,” Brandon muttered, and Mike burst out laughing.

How do I get invited to that dinner party? I’d love to see more of that group…

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…
