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.

Review: Their Meddling Aunt: Sequel to Their Wild Little Girl by Shawna Hunter

I've been swamped lately but I had time this week to read Their Meddling Aunt: Sequel to Their Wild Little Girl by Shawna Hunter and so here are my thoughts on this book.

Shaun's rating:

Their Meddling Aunt is a sequel to Their Wild Little Girl which I have not read yet, but I thought it worked fine as a stand alone piece.

Marcus, Jessica, and Elisabeth (Lizzy) have a happy little menage going on with a bit of bdsm play to keep things spicy. Lizzy had survived for years in the jungle of South America after a plane crash which claimed the life of her parents. Marcus had rescued her and Jessica was involved in her reintroduction to the civilized world. All of that is, I'm sure, the story of Their Wild Little Girl, but it's explained well enough in Their Meddling Aunt that the reader has a pretty good idea of what's going on even without having read the first book. 

Jessica is a bit devious, she likes head games, and she has come up with a plot to help Marcus come more to terms with his role as a dominant. This plot involves Lizzy's aunt, Lydia, who has her own plot working; she wants to test Marcus and be sure that he is worthy of being Lizzy and Jessica's dominant. 

It's an interesting plot, but to be honest I did not think it was as well developed as some of the Author's other works which I have read. The story seemed to drag a bit for me during the first 25% or so of the book, but after that it got more interesting.

There was a lot of erotic content in this book, most of which was quite titillating as I would expect having read a couple of Ms Hunter's books in the past, she is quite good at describing steamy scenes. As I mentioned there's a good bit of bdsm thrown in to spice things up; most of it is rather mild, including spanking and pony play.

My main critique of this book is with the editing; it badly needed a final edit. There were a lot of misused words, and Marcus was referred to as Shawn in at least a couple of places. This drew from the story flow multiple times and really took away from my enjoyment of the book.

I'm giving Their Meddling Aunt three and one half out of five paddles.
