The last thing she expects is to evolve from watching ménages to being part of the show. Or for the two hot men who join her and Joe to not be able to keep their hands off each other.

review
I do have a disclaimer about short books, if the book is short, I try not to give to much away about the book. But I also have another disclaimer about this book… If you are not use of reading m/m loving…. This book has some. I do not pretend to know everyone’s reading taste, but if you love a freaking hot story with spicy sexing… Then you will want to read this one. But you never know until you try it! 🙂
*
Wow! If you visit the Lair often, you know that I am a huge Ryder fan! I love her erotic voice. She brings all things hot and explosive to the bed, I mean table. She creates situations that are wickedly naughty and deliciously tasty. Cristal keeps you on the edge of your seat from the first page to the last tortuous page of her story. She will give you everything and more from her book. She will make sure that you will leave with a smile 🙂
*
This book was no exception. Tara and Joe are in a relationship that has not been defined yet. They are in the dating stage, the learning about your partner part. Tara is excited to try something with Joe, but she is not sure what reception she will get from Joe. She knows that their relationship is explosively hot but she is not sure what his “lines” to be drawn are when it comes to their relationship. Joe, wow, is a man that is pure sin. That is all I can say about him. From his moves, to his ass, to his voice… sexy sin!
*
Now, this book is short (for me it was about 29 pages) so I am sorry to say that I cannot give you much about this book… Although, what I can give you is… This book is freaking HOT!! This book WILL make you wet! You will need to make sure you have things on stand-by for those spots in the book, oh hell, the whole book to help you along! 😉 This is a short, sexy, hot little book! Cristal made sure to give you all those sweet little words to make you desire, want, need a release!!!! As a Smutty Hussy, all I can say is that I Wanted MORE!!!! Not in a bad way, where the story needed to be longer… no… just wanted more of this sexy, hot, lustful, potent erotic story!!!
*
Cristal, you did an awesome job with Tara & Joe!!! And Phil & Chad!!!

excerpt

Before I knew it she had positioned me in the swing with my legs spread wide, lounging back holding on to the ropes. Joe stood behind Wendy. His arms crossed over his wide chest enhanced the muscled thickness of his biceps and forearms. He watched every move we made and licked his lips whenever Wendy’s fingers brushed my flesh as she placed me how she wanted in the swing.

“There. How does that feel?”

Her hand rested on my thigh and I was acutely aware of it. My skin tingled and grew hot from her touch, radiating a delightful sweep of arousal throughout my body. I’d never had a woman touch me before and was surprised at how pleasant it was.

“Actually, quite comfortable.” Even if my legs were spread wide and pussy bare to both their gazes. They were taking in the view of my exposure and I trembled with excitement.

“Good.” Wendy’s voice was soft, low, and I was sure I heard a husky tone to it as if she were aroused too. But then why wouldn’t she be? Just because she was the owner didn’t mean she couldn’t enjoy her club any way she pleased. Her hand slipped to my inner thigh and slowly slid up my leg.

I sucked in a breath, unsure what to do, but determined to not shift my position. Her hand stopped just before the crease of my thigh and as close to my pussy as any woman had ever been.

“You have lovely soft skin.” And then her hand was gone. Was that a flash of disappointment I experienced? “Joe, please stand here.”

I watched him do as instructed and he was between my thighs, his crotch in perfect line with me. All he’d have to do is unzip his pants and step forward to slide in my hot and very ready core. I moaned.

Review: Close Contact by @CristalRyder , @Cassandra_Carr and Cindy Carr

review

ccService Ace by Cassandra Carr

Ms. Carr’s story is the first one in this short anthology and I have to says that this short little story was too cute. It is a close encounter between one woman, Adrianna, and the man of her fantasies. An encounter that Adrianna has
dreamed about for a long time. Having private lessons with ex pro tennis champ Callum Giovanni is a wicked treat Adrianna will never forget. But what she still can’t get over is the fact that she initiated it!

Let’s just say that after their first private lesson, these two will have a stand up appointment as often as possible. Set.Game.Match.

Ms. Ryder always amazes me with her with delicious sexcapades. I promise it’s all good. Her stories evoke naughty little thoughts and wicked hints of desire. This little tale is between a pro golfer and a sexy as hell cowboy. Lexie is use of being in control and giving orders. She is also used of being able to keep things together. But when she is giving Jay, the hot cowboy, lessons he turns the tables on her. And when it rains, it pours lol. Par.Birdie.Eagle

Up to the Hilt by Cindy Carr

Ms. Cindy’s short tale of two fencers is quite the tale. These two are young, early twenties. Rina, for me, was a little immature in some of mannerism. But I have to give it to her that she has a goal and is determined to succeed. No matter what. But following the master fencer Sebastian is going to be the challenge of her life. Is she up for the is or will she walk out like she has in the past when things didn’t go her way. Let’s find out….

Elemental Heat

Blurb:

Jenna takes a big risk and decides to live in the moment. After months of communication by social media, she accepts an invitation to Colorado where she finally meets her cowboy. Burned by past romances, Jenna is determined to move on and goes with one goal in mind—a booty call with a tall, dark, sexy cowboy.Chet is a romantic at heart and when Jenna arrives, he knows there’s more to her than a pretty face and a hot body. A casual fling won’t do. He’s smitten and decides to woo her the old-fashioned way with time and patience. And of course, hot sex.Their chemistry is elemental and they come together with heat that sears the snowy peaks. When Mother Nature steps in, Jenna is forced to face the feelings she’s tried so hard to keep buried and Chet has to draw on his mountain skills to save the woman he has come to love.


This excerpt is…. Extremely Hot!!!! And Naughty!!!! Be careful!

His arms held her with a power that made her whimper and when his hands slipped to her ass her legs trembled. Chet’s fingers splayed over her cheeks and pressed her flush up to him, leaving no question of his intentions by the press of his erection intimately against her. She was assaulted on all levels. His lips, her breasts crushed against his powerful chest, the press of his thighs to hers, his heat and his cock so evidently ready for her and she thrilled with delight.
The kiss didn’t stop and she lost track of space and time. All Jenna saw behind her closed lids was the cliché of shooting stars and feeling as if the earth moved. She clung to Chet for dear life and to prolong the exquisite agony of not being close enough.

Review: Plus One by Cristal Ryder *Ellora’s Cave* W/Special Surprise!!

Plus OneComing January 4 from Ellora’s Cave

A girls’ night out for a pole dance workshop at her friend’s upscale sex club takes a wild turn for normally timid Karen. She knew what to expect, but not how far she’d be willing to go.
Rob comes to Desire After Dark as a plus one. His only expectation is visual stimulation, not participation. But that soon changes when he spots the buttoned-up-to-there beauty hanging around on the sidelines.
Thrown together, Karen and Rob find the sexual heat between them undeniable. Surrounded by twosomes and moresomes, they step on an unexpected and steamy path. But when another joins in, they have a plus one of their own.

**********************
I obtained the above information from Ms. Cristal’s website.
And I received this book for my honest thoughts from Ellora’s Cave… So, please let’s get to the review….

For those of you that know me… and those that don’t this is my little statement about short books…. I do not judge short stories on the rush of their relationships, because they are just that – short stories. So, yes the relationships always could have been drawn out more, yea it seems like they fall in love to fast and of course the story could have been made longer… but it is a short story. So with that said…. here is my review…


My fellow peeps, if you come to my blog often enough. You know how much. I love Ms. Cristal’s writing. She will heat your sheets up, she will set your blood racing and she will ignite your wicked desires in a heartbeat.  She wraps her words around you, she laces you up in passion and she takes you on a journey through your naughtiest dreams… She will being them to life for you!


This story is only different because it is considered to be “exotica,” where there is pleasure galore but not a happily ever -we get married- after ending… But I can promise you – there is a happy ending! This is also a Quickie story – hence the short story warning.

Haven’t you ever wanted to let your hair down, let the bun down, and shake it wildly? Ever wanted to burn the sensible shoes you wear everyday? Or just say screw it – I’m taking what I want and I don’t give a shit about anyone else… Well then, you need to meet Karen!  Oh lets not forget her partner of choice for the night – Rob!

These two are going to rock your world! I promise… But just keep turning the pages because one plus one…. Plus One more will definitely make you want a Plus One!



And for an extra special little treat….

Happy Birthday Cristal!
You know I adore you and love you!
I hope you truly have a wonderfully, naughty, smutty Birthday!!!!




Enjoy! **Naughty Wink**

Review: Rock-Hard Heat by Cristal Ryder *Ellora’s Cave*

Rock-Hard Heat

All Rights Reserved, Ellora’s Cave Publishing, Inc.

It had been a glorious couple of days before Chet had to head down and get back to real life. She smiled and enjoyed the heat that bloomed in her belly, remembering their first lovemaking session after being apart for so many months. Desire for her cowboy never failed to heat her blood and she longed for him now. She wanted him with her in the soft mountain water, which caressed her skin so seductively.

The grime and dust of her prospecting activities at Chet’s great-great-uncle Chester’s old claim sluiced off in the creek’s current and left her skin pink and tingly. She wasn’t ready to get out yet and closed her eyes, drifting lazily.

Chet couldn’t confirm when he’d be back and Jenna had gotten used to staying here on her own when he wasn’t with her. At first, he’d been hesitant to leave her, but she insisted and he’d learned a while ago how stubborn she could be. So they compromised. He made sure she was checked on daily by a ranch hand, had taught her to shoot and left the rifle by the door. The radio was primed in case she needed immediate help and his dog Belle stayed with her. All was good with the world.

Letting her legs drop, Jenna curled her toes into the creek bed and stood. The water was deep, just covering her breasts. They bobbed at the surface, buffeted by little eddies of current. She tipped back, ducked her head in the water and swept her long red tresses out of her face. When she stood, it hung to her shoulders and fanned out on the surface of the water like a halo.

A sense of wellbeing filled her and her heart swelled with happiness. Never had such a strong sensation of belonging, being home, been so sharply etched within her. She knew she had been born on the wrong side of the continent. It was here she should have grown up and experienced life, not back east. Jenna inhaled the crisp mountain air and gazed at the bush around her. It was just as beautiful in the summer as in the winter. Her love for this land grew daily and it truly pained her to think of leaving it. And Chet.

She brushed the disturbing thought aside. It was a while before she’d be packing her bags. Jenna’s gaze took in the brand new sluice box. Chet had replaced the broken-down one with a much more modern setup here at the creek and farther up-river where the tree came down. Chester’s old one was being restored and eventually would be donated to a local history museum. She was determined to find his secret claim and Chet had humored her all the way. Jenna smiled and excitement bubbled inside her at the news she had to tell him.

The gurgle of water over the dam of rocks mixed delightfully with the birds singing in the trees. Jenna was at peace. She sighed and shivered with a slight chill from the cool mountain water. Goose bumps rose along her flesh and her nipples hardened, aching with the cold. She cupped her breasts in her palms, the hard nubs pressing against her flesh. This time the shiver that rippled through her wasn’t from being chilled.

“Chet, when are you going to get here?” she whispered to the silence of the surrounding trees.

“What’s the matter, darlin’? Miss me?”

Jenna spun around, sending a splash of water in a sparkling arc. The wonderful, sexy drawl of Chet’s voice slipped around her like hot honey and she warmed under his gaze. He stood on the little rocky beach where they had made love on the bank of chilly snow last winter. She couldn’t help the smile that broke wide on her face when their eyes met.

“Chet.” His name fell from her lips in a breathy sigh.

He had one booted foot propped on a large rock, his elbow rested on his knee. The faded, worn jeans tightened over his muscular thighs and Jenna’s breath snagged in her chest. She let her gaze roam over the typical plaid cowboy shirt which also strained across his powerful chest and shoulders. He poked his cowboy hat back with a finger and winked at her. She knew what lay beneath those clothes and she hungered for him. He was a feast for her eyes and she needed feeding.

“Now then, this sure is a sight to behold. It’s a damn good thing I decided to come myself and not send Blake to check on you.”

“I’d say I have to agree with that, cowboy.”

“Last time I checked we didn’t have mermaids in these parts. Just goes to show you can learn somethin’ new every day.” He straightened and started to unbutton his shirt. “Want some company?”

“I thought you’d never ask.”

I have received this book from Ellora’s Cave for my honest thoughts… Here goes…

For those of you that know me… and those that don’t this is my little statement about short books…. I do not judge short stories on the rush of their relationships, because they are just that – short stories. So, yes the relationships always could have been drawn out more, yea it seems like they fall in love to fast and of course the story could have been made longer… but it is a short story. So with that said…. here is my review..

Omg… Okay, if you have come to my lair, you will know that I love Cristal’s writing. She is mad wicked with her naughty stories… She teases us, tempts us.. And simply makes us hot under the sheets. She is just that good and damnit if this woman hasn’t done it to me again…. But this time she finished the story with me sniffling cuz it was just that good. She made this story hot enough for me to feel the Rock-Hard Heat… but she made it soft enough for me to see the tender part of Chet & Jenna…

Oh gosh, where do I start… Jenna and Chet – click here to see the beginning of their journey – get their ending in a way that could melt the ice from the ice ages, lol. It is so hot but so tender… You see so much love and lust when these two look at each other… It will make you want to find that special person in your life and heat things up a bit…. Or better yet it will Rock your world… be Hard on your heart… and Heat up your bedroom!!

Go get it and if you haven’t gotten the first – please go get it! You won’t regret it… I promise you! Cristal, thank you!! Love ya!

Review: Elemental Heat by Cristal Ryder *Ellora’s Cave*

Elemental Heat
Cristal Ryder

Jenna takes a big risk and decides to live in the moment. After months of communication by social media, she accepts an invitation to Colorado where she finally meets her cowboy. Burned by past romances, Jenna is determined to move on and goes with one goal in mind—a booty call with a tall, dark, sexy cowboy.

Chet is a romantic at heart and when Jenna arrives, he knows there’s more to her than a pretty face and a hot body. A casual fling won’t do. He’s smitten and decides to woo her the old-fashioned way with time and patience. And of course, hot sex.

Their chemistry is elemental and they come together with heat that sears the snowy peaks. When Mother Nature steps in, Jenna is forced to face the feelings she’s tried so hard to keep buried and Chet has to draw on his mountain skills to save the woman he has come to love.

I obtained the following information from Ellora’s Cave!

I was given this book by Ellora’s Cave for my honest thoughts and words….
For those of you that know me… and those that don’t this is my little statement about short books…. I do not judge short stories on the rush of their relationships, because they are just that – short stories. So, yes the relationships always could have been drawn out more, yea it seems like they fall in love to fast and of course the story could have been made longer… but it is a short story. So with that said…. here is my review..

First, I am a fan of Cristal Ryder’s work… She brings to the table all sorts of things with her delicious tales. She brings romance, lust, love, heat, sexy men, desire, tension and don’t forget about some great love scenes…. and of course happy endings. Cristal rocks when it comes to giving all she can to a story. This one is no different…

Jenna is a woman hell bent on just having a good time. Having been burned more than once has been enough for her… So, her thinking now is let’s just enjoy what we have for the time being. Jenna was hoping to keep her heart locked away while she enjoyed life’s offering – Chet.

Chet is a man on mission – a romancing kinda mission. He has had his fill of women that were after his money… and maybe a little something else too. But he knew that once he found the woman that warmed his heart, that woman would also warm his bed as well. He was hoping that that woman would be Jenna. He knew she was not a big fan of relationships and a non-believer of romance… but he was hoping he could change that.

These two start off meeting online… Then taking a flight of faith – Jenna goes to meet him at his ranch and is in for the surprise of her life. This is an awesome story. One that had me holding my breath at some points. The story is going to keep you entertained and wanting to know more…. And Cristal, I want to know about the gold!!! So you  know you have to write more!!!

Now, if I did not leave you wanting more… I am not sure what else would… Well, okay, I will give you just a little bit more because the story is short… The romance between these two build throughout the whole story…. Simmering and then coming to a boil… And then there is a life or death situation… Now are you interested!!!!

Review: Switch Me Up by Cristal Ryder **Ellora Cave’s**

Switch Me Up
By: Cristal Ryder

Steve wasn’t sure how finding a match on a dating site could have gone so wrong—or was it so right? Younger than him by ten years, Clare exudes confidence, sexuality and an erotic allure that leaves no room for misinterpretation. She wants him. And he wants nothing more than to bury himself in her heat. But Clare comes with some baggage. Literally. Once his predatory minx breaks open the suitcase and the toys come out, Steve knows he’s in for the wildest ride of his life.

An EC for Men erotica story from Ellora’s Cave

I obtained the above information from Ellora’s Cave!

I have now been picked to review for Ellora’s Cave, so I was given this book for my honest thoughts and Review! So, let’s get started!

For those of you that know me… and those that don’t this is my little statement about short books…. I do not judge short stories on the rush of their relationships, because they are just that – short stories. So, yes the relationships always could have been drawn out more, yea it seems like they fall in love to fast and of course the story could have been made longer… but it is a short story. So with that said…. here is my review…

First, let me say that this is part of a new series by Ellora’s Cave…. EC for Men line!!! Just wait to see what you will find!!!

Now, secondly… if you come to the Lair often, you will know that I love Ms. Cristal’s storytelling. She knows how to heat up the pages, burn the sheets and give me the worst kinda hunger for some kinky, hot loving!!! She can whip you into a frenzy and you would never know what hit you.

This is a short book, so you know what that means… I can’t give you too much because it would give it away… So, let’s see what I can give you…

This is one hot story… The word quickie describes it quite well… but when you read it and you see the tease that Clare puts Steve through, you might think twice about the word quickie…

Steve was about to find out. He thought he went about it the right way… Putting down his likes and dislikes… Making sure all the right boxes were check… A couple dates for coffee and Steve was kinda sure he found a woman he could be okay with… A nasty divorce would leave anyone hard and Steve was no different… But he was hoping that Clare would be just what he needed to loosen up… And things were going great until Clare pulled her suitcase out and rocked Steve’s world…

What was different about this book, Ms. Cristal got inside the mind of the man who thought he was in charge. The story is written from Steve’s point of view… and it actually had me giggling thinking of what poor Steve was going through… He just wanted one thing… Or let’s say that he only thought he knew what he wanted… Hahahaha… Clare had other things in mind for him!!!

Now, I will say that I did not see the book ending the way it did! Oh no, don’t get me wrong, the ending was great… It made me feel like a satisfied hussy left purring in bed…. But, I really thought I would see something else happen… It didn’t and I was okay, lol… This was just another awesome QUICKIE story from Ms. Cristal!!!!

What you got next for me Ms. Cristal… You know how to make this Hussy happy!!!!! *evil grin*

To see more of Ms. Cristal’s world, please visit her world here!! You will enjoy, I promise!

I am very happy to say that I was able to
*tie up ~ evil grin*
Ms. Cristal Ryder
for a little while to have a chat with her!
She is such a delight to have at the Lair!!
Let’s give Ms. Cristal Ryder
a warm Hussy Lair welcome!!!
Isn’t she gorgeous!

Oh and please make sure you read between the lines of this interview because I think Cristal snuck in a giveaway….. ***happy dance***

Hey Cristal, I hope all has been well for you… Why don’t you tell us what you’ve been up to since the last time you were here?

Lots of naughty things with a little bit of writing mixed in.

Humm, now that sounds interesting! I could start this off naughty if I wanted to!! Hahaha!… But for those that don’t come to the Lair often, why don’t you tell us a little bit about yourself?

We’ll, I’m Canadian, have two boys, 21 & 23 and I write erotic romance for Ellora’s Cave and Lyrical Press. I love the outdoors and will jet away at a moments notice if given the opportunity. As I get older, I’m getting softer and can cry at the most inappropriate moments.

Did you use the older word… Honey, from that picture up there… Older is not you! We are going to do a little different interview because I know you are a busy woman (and let’s be honest, I want to read the next book, so I won’t keep you from writing! Ha) we are going to ask some random questions to get to know you better…. What are 3 things you would never leave the house without?

1. Wallet/purse
2. Phone
3. Clothes

And in your current book, what 3 things would your main character never leave the house without ~ Besides me of course, because I know those men in your books *evil smirk*?

He doesn’t leave the house!

***I know I try to keep him busy, hahahahaha***

No need to with what *she* brings in to the house. But if I had to pick something it would be…

1. Wallet
2. Keys
3. Cell phone

In Switch Me Up, who was your favorite character to write and why?

Steve. It was completely in his POV. I had to think like a dude when it came to sex. Not as easy as you might think. I liked putting him in situations he didn’t expect.

What was your favorite scene to write and the toughest?

Well, if I told you the exact scene it would be a spoiler. It was difficult to write because I wanted to try and make him vulnerable, comfortable in an uncomfortable situation and be able to know how far to go. He had a lot to learn in it and he did!

I challenge those that read Switch Me Up to tell me the scene and leave a comment. I’ll pick someone to receive a book from my back list.

Omg… Did you just offer up a copy of something from your back list if we tell you our favorite scene from Switch Me Up!! Okay… I will repeat this at the end!! Thank you so much! That is so generous of you!!! I will keep this up for the month of March!!

Do you have a favorite cover?

Yes, I love Being Ariana and Switch Me Up. I can’t wait to see the next cover EC does for my next release Elemental Heat. There be a cowboy in that book!

I’m a cover hussy, do you think it’s the cover that sells the book?

I believe a good cover helps the book get noticed and not passed over. There are so many wonderful books out there with great covers and some not so great. Of course it is depended on the readers taste as well.

Can you tell us a little bit about your new book? Maybe a little snippet? How about an excerpt?

Seems she will do better than that.. She is going to give us an excerpt!!!

He left her in the living room. Upstairs he tossed some clothes laying around his bedroom into the hamper, smoothed the bed that didn’t need fixing and turned on the bedside lamp.
He was about to have sex with a complete stranger.
Something so totally out of character for him it made him nervous. He may be apprehensive but he sure wasn’t dead and he wasn’t about to let this opportunity pass by. His heart started to race and his cock hardened. Sex. Tonight he was going to bang a woman ten years his junior. What did that make him?
A lucky fucking dog, that’s what. He smiled at his wit.
Once he was satisfied with the room Steve went back downstairs.
He totally expected her to be sitting on the couch waiting for him with her drink in hand. He half hoped she’d be naked or something. Instead she sat in the shadows out of the glow of the fire. She had changed clothes. Steve adjusted his balls and stiffening dick in his jeans.
What the fuck did she have on?
She stood and stepped into the light cast by the fire and lamp in the far corner. He nearly swallowed his tongue. Now he knew one thing she had in the suitcase.
“Do you like?” Clare smoothed her palms over her breasts, along her sides and ended her caress by placing her hands on her hips, tipping her shoulder forward with her hip cocked. Her voice, low and sultry, wrapped around him like hot honey.
Steve nodded.
“Speak, tell me you like it.”
His eyebrows shot up and Clare reached out a hand sheathed in elbow-length leather opera gloves and touched his shoulder.
“I like it,” he replied quickly.
Clare’s husky laugh didn’t seem to fit her tiny form. She circled and paused behind him, running her finger across his back from shoulder to shoulder before settling both palms on his hips. He craned his head to look at her and was distracted when her black, stocking-clad leg hooked around his knee. Steve’s hand dropped to her thigh and held her leg in place.
“I’m glad you like it,” she whispered in his ear.
He kept his gaze glued on her leg, rubbing his palm up her thigh to the scarlet top on the stockings and back down to her knee. It was a spectacular sight. He groaned when she thrust her hips against his ass and tightened her grip.
“Are you hard for me?”
Is she fucking kidding? “Why don’t you check for yourself?”
“Oh, what a delicious invitation.”

Damn, what a passage to read!!! Thanks for sharing that!!!! Now… what if you found the genie in the magic lamp, what would your 3 wishes be?

Health, independence financially and mentally, & my own private beach

I do love that last one!!! Well, actually I like them all… But if you get that last one, I know you will bring your men with you and I want in on that deal!

Now what’s the last line you wrote from your current WIP?

A tremor vibrated under his feet and he looked down, furrowing his brow. When he looked back up she was gone.

What are you working on now?

I’m finishing up the pre-edits for Elemental Heat, my next release with Ellora’s Cave.

What’s coming up in the future?

A release sometime in May I’ll be in an anthology Public Displays of Eroticisms, my story is called Taking it Outside. A Women’s Fiction and my father’s WWII story is top priority. But I will be doing a few short erotic romances as well, one about a sea witch.

What’s your motto?

Why wait until tomorroLinkw when you can do it today.

Favorite line you’ve ever written?

“What a goat fuck.”

Review: Being Bound by Cristal Ryder

Being Bound
By: Cristal Ryder

Sometimes reality is so much better than fantasy.

A man used to getting what he wants, Tom Rourke doesn’t take being discarded lightly. Smarting from rejection, Rourke decides the complication of women is distracting him from his goal. He refocuses his energy into ownership of the Black Phantom, where he meets Heather Canyon. Drawn into her erotic web, he can’t get her out of his mind. But can he trust her? The only way to know is to experience her first hand.
Link
Dominatrix Heather Canyon is looking for a new beginning, and a safe place where she can let her talents shine. Rourke’s proposition is the perfect opportunity. She must test him to ensure they are the right fit for and challenges him at every turn. She isn’t looking for a partner, but has she found her match with Rourke?

I obtained the above information from Lyrical Press website.

For those of you that know me… and those that don’t this is my little statement about short books…. I do not judge short stories on the rush of their relationships, because they are just that – short stories. So, yes the relationships always could have been drawn out more, yea it seems like they fall in love to fast and of course the story could have been made longer… but it is a short story. So with that said…. here is my review…

I am a devoted fan of Ms. Ryder’s writing style and this story… Well… it left me Being Bound. I love Ms. Cristal’s voice in the story… I love the way she intrigues me with her words… I love the way she captivates me with the characters… I love the way she pulls me in!

Now, you know how I am for short stories… I hate to give things away… So, without saying to much I will try to give you the best review I think I can give….

This is a story of testing the limits… Pushing boundaries…. It takes a strong person to go the extra distance and come back out on top! (Ha) And when two people come together to test each other out… Well… this is the story about it. Two people come head to head to test the limits of each other, to see what each other is made of – so to speak… And the things they do to test each other… Well… let’s just say they learn some things about themselves! And realize they kinda like it!

Now, I will warn you… Rourke is a bit of a man whore. I am not trying to give to much away… but you will see what I mean. He is a great guy and damn if he is not hot! But still… he is a man whore. But I believe he is holding out for the woman that makes him hot… It makes me wonder if they will have their HEA…. Hummm… If I have your curious, then you will have to read the first one!!!

So are you reading to see what Being Bound is all about… Let’s go see. I promise they won’t bite! Well, unless of course you ask!

Ms. Cristal, I cannot wait to see what else you have in store for us. Your writing just keeps surprising me!!! You have taken simple words and crafted them in a way that they get under my skin and make me hot!!! You make the Hussy purr!!! **Roar**
