Review: Lipstick For Her Leather: An Anthology of Transgender Femdom Erotica

Becoming an author has been such a wonderful experience, it's something I wanted to do from a very early age. I have had some really great experiences as an author; just publishing my first book was awesome, receiving my first review was amazing, having audio editions of my books published by Wordwooze was incredible. Now I have had another wonderful experience; one of my stories has been included in an anthology along with some of the transgender erotica authors whom I most enjoy and admire. I feel privileged to have my work included alongside these works by other authors whom I think are so fantastic. Not only are the stories in this book great but the book is being offered for free so that readers can get a taste of each Author's work and style. The authors include Sally Bend, Lyka Bloom, Jim Lyon, Kella Z. Driel, Jessie Ash, Kylie Gable, Claudia Acosta and myself. The book is called Lipstick For Her Leather: An Anthology of Transgender Femdom Erotica 

Shaun's rating:

There is a wonderful variety to the stories in this book, if you like femdom, feminization, and/or transgender erotica there will surely be something in these stories that will appeal to you. All the stories are well written, well edited, and hot. I was pleased to find that every story in this anthology is truly some of the best writing that I have had the pleasure of reading in this genre: The scenes are intriguing and well described, the character development by each author is amazing for such short stories, and the action... well the action is just steamy.

I hope that you will download a free copy of this book and that you will enjoy it. Included along with the stories are a brief bio of each author, links to some of their other works, and social media links. The book is also listed on Goodreads and should be available on Amazon soon, it would be great (and greatly appreciated) if readers would leave an honest review on those sites.

Review: Smutpunk Erotica Collab by Various Authors

I love when Authors put out free anthologies so that you can get a taste of their work without having to dish out hard earned money, it's a great way to find authors you like and allows the reader to be a bit wiser with their purchases. I recently had the pleasure of reading Smutpunk Erotica Collab, an anthology that included a few authors that I was already familiar with and introduced me to some new ones as well.

Shaun's rating:

I'm not going to go into an in-depth review of the stories here, I will say that all the stories are well written and edited, and that there is quite a variety to the stories though all have that Smutpunk feel. You'll find phallogynes, yetis, dinosaurs, and even time travelling cyborgs. It's a fun read that is sexy at times. The best thing is that this book allows the reader to sample Smutpunk, and various authors style. Best of all it's free on Smashwords!

I'm giving this book five out of five paddles, I highly recommend it.

Review: Girltown by Lyka Bloom

This week I'm going to be sharing with you my thoughts on a short book that I found very fun and rather sweet. The book is Girltown by Lyka Bloom.

Shaun's rating:

Trevor is a college student with a secret; he wants to be feminized. This secret has him leading a bit of a loner's life so that he can privately indulge in his passion. One day he encounters a video on the internet that pushes all his buttons but it gets even more exciting when he begins receiving mysterious texts and finally an invitation to Girltown where it's possible that all his dreams might come true. Trevor goes to Girltown, but it's not quite what he expected. There he meets Vanessa who offers to help him realize his dreams, if he's willing to give her complete control. 

The meat of the story is erotic hypnosis, and its described beautifully by the author. As Trevor floats through a pink work of semi-consciousness he loses his old self and becomes... Well, I'll let you read that part for yourself.

The story is lovely, great character development and wonderful descriptions that bring the reader deeply into the story. It's all done in a way that is of rather questionable consent, yet its so sweet that you can't help be happy for Trevor.

The editing of this story is not great, I was stalled in the story several times due to things that slipped through the process, but it is still very readable and certainly a story I recommend to feminization fans.

I'm  giving Girltown four and one half out of five paddles, I want to go to girltown and I definitely want to read more about it!

Audio book review: Filthy Boys by M. Christian

I've just finished listening to another audiobook, Filthy Boys: Male-Male Erotica by M. Christian and narrated by Michael Vasicek.

Shaun's rating:

I'm not usually a big fan of m/m erotica, it just doesn't do much for me generally, however I am a big fan of M. Christian's writing so I thought I would give this book a try: I am very glad I did.

M Christian just has such a way with turning a phrase and with placing the reader into the story. His descriptions and character building create a scene in the readers mind, and this book was no exception. His story telling just pulls the reader in until they are immersed in this world he has created. 

This is a fantastic collection of stories. Even if you are not into m/m the stories themselves will entertain and make you think, maybe even disturb you a bit. With that said, I also found myself being turned on. Now, not every story turned me on but many of them did, they were just so hot, steamy, and yes filthy.

The narration was a perfect fit for these stories. The narrator's deep, gravelly, voice brought the characters and action to life.

Review: The Nightclub by James St. Clair

It's warming up here in Southern California and this week I read a book that made things even warmer, The Nightclub: An Accelerated Hotwife Tale by James St. Clair.

Shaun's rating:

Jason and Becky are a young happily married couple. Jason has fantasies of seeing Becky with another guy and she has played along in a purely fantasy way but for Jason's birthday she might be willing to take things beyond the fantasy. They go out to a nightclub, Becky dresses a bit slutty at Jason's request and there they meet Matt the hung alpha type guy.

So... yes it's a pretty formulaic story, the plot is not very original but sometimes the standard fare is such for a reason; because it works. There is nothing particularly original in this story but it's pretty well written and the erotic scenes are hot. This is a definite spank-bank type of book for those who enjoy cuckold/hotwife erotica.  I did think that the character development was especially well done for this type of erotic work, I felt like I came to know all three characters and I liked them.

The erotic scenes are quite well done, very good descriptions that bring the reader into the room with the action. If cuckold/hotwife is your thing this book should definitely tickle your fancy.

Editing was pretty good in this story; there was one little quirk that kind of bothered me, the use of then when it should it have been than, but it wasn't a huge deal. The book is written in the present tense which I found kind of annoying at times, but again not a big deal.

I'm giving The Nightclub four out of five paddles, I recommend it to hotwife/cuckold fans.

Review: Discovering Domination by Shaw Montgomery

It's so nice when you find a femdom book that contains a story and characters outside the stereotype that is so often associated with the genre. This week I had the good fortune of reading Discovering Domination by Shaw Montgomery and I am happy to tell you that this is one of those stories that leaves the porno-ish view of femdom well behind.

Shaun's rating:

Discovering Domination is the story of J.J. and Parker; how they meet and begin a female led relationship. J.J. is a successful, driven, self-employed woman who has had a difficult time finding the right man. Parker is also successful, driven, and having trouble finding the right woman; the difference is Parker knows what he is looking for while J.J. is not so sure. There is a strong attraction when the two meet, but J.J. quickly learns that Parker is interested in a woman who takes charge of the relationship and she is not sure if that is for her or not. 

Once again Ms. Montgomery creates characters that are actually well developed, like-able and who thankfully don't fall into the femdom stereotype of shrew and milquetoast. J.J. and Parker seem real, they are functional human beings who most of us would be happy to sit down to dinner with. It's so nice to see characters in the femdom genre portrayed in this way. There's a good bit of light bdsm play protrayed in this book, but J.J. is not some screeching, man-hating, control-freak and Parker is a strong caring man who has the will and ability to stand up for himself.

This is a romance that is very well done and has enough erotic hotness to get the readers blood pumping.

I very much enjoyed Discovering Domination and I'm giving it four out of five paddles. If you enjoy reading female led fiction and femdom that breaks the porn stereotypes then I highly recommend this book.

Audiobook review- Tinder Surprise: Pegging and Begging by Sakinaa Davies

I do enjoy audiobooks and this week I had the pleasure of listening to Tinder Surprise: Pegging and Begging written by Sakinaa Davies and narrated by Sierra Kline.

Shaun's rating:

Ethan is a college student/athlete who meets Alexis through Tinder while he's hanging out with some friends in a bar. Alexis invites Ethan back to her hotel room for an adventurous evening, but an evening on her terms. They jump right into some some pretty intense bdsm play, perhaps not very realistic but it's damn sure hot. 

The reader is tossed right into the action from the first line of the book. After a few chapters of hot sexiness we learn a bit of the back story and find out how Ethan found himself under Alexis' thrall.

Tinder Surprise was a nice surprise for me. While this is a fairly straight forward piece of erotica, there is a story but it is primarily hot femdom smut (smut in the best way), it's well written erotica that will definitely rev your engine; especially if you're into such things as male chastity, pegging, and tease and denial. Don't expect great depth of characters or plot (though perhaps that will build as the story continues in future volumes) but do expect hot raw femdom bdsm action.

Sierra Kline's narration is fantastic, her voice and inflection convey the raw sexuality of this story.

I highly recommend Tinder Surprise to those femdom fans who are looking for a sizzling spank-bank book. I'm giving Tinder Surprise four and one half out of five paddles.
