Hump Day Excerpt: Giving In By Maya Banks

BY RT BOOK REVIEWS, APRIL 15, 2014 | PERMALINK

Another hump day is upon us, which means it's time for another erotic excerpt for you to enjoy! To help get you over the midweek slump, we've got a scene from Giving In by Maya Banks (we posted an excerpt from the first book in this series, Letting Go, here). This book is different from Banks's usual work in that the couple doesn't have sex until more than halfway through the story, due to abuse in the heroine's past. Because we don't want to spoil the big moment for anyone, this excerpt is a bit on the tamer side, although it's still an emotional moment between the hero and heroine. Enjoy!

Kylie awoke to a completely alien sensation. She laid there, trying to process just what was different. She felt . . . rested. No lingering darkness from nightmares. She felt . . . safe.

Hump Day Excerpt: Bad Influence by K.A. Mitchell

BY RT BOOK REVIEWS, APRIL 09, 2014 | PERMALINK

It's Hump Day, folks! We're back with another steamy excerpt to get you through the mid-week slump. Today we've got a scene from Bad Influence by K.A. Mitchell — the fourth M/M romance in the author's Bad in Baltimore series. The book tells the story of Zeb and Silver, whose meet cute isn't so cute — it lands them both in jail. Both men are dealing with scars from their past, but together they find intense chemistry. Enjoy!

Zeb leaned forward, his hands bracketing Silver’s neck where it rested against the chair. “You are a nice guy.”

Silver wanted to brush the praise away, force the reality that nice guys in Zeb’s world didn’t do bareback porn just to stay off the street.

Zeb loomed closer, hands on Silver’s shoulders. “No, screw that. I’ve had nice guys. I’ve dated and taken my time before ending up in bed with them.”

Silver’s skin prickled with gooseflesh.

Peg This: Six Erotic Pegging Stories You Must Read

BY Elisa Verna, APRIL 09, 2014 | PERMALINK

An erotic story can contain just about any sort of sex act, from a ménage to alien sex. It's part of what makes the genre so great — variety! Lately, there’s been a fantastic upswing in erotic romances featuring dominant or switch heroines, and something that’s often included in these stories is pegging (link NSFW because of an, er, instructional image). I absolutely love reading pegging scenes — the power exchange is both fascinating and sexy. Below are six recommended reads (some I’ve read, some were recommended to me) that feature pegging. Happy reading!

1. I feel like I’m committing erotica sin by never having read a Charlotte Stein story — she seems like an author I would love (meaning, her books sound filthy). Reviewers describe her novella "Giving" as having an intense, loving relationship between the submissive hero and Domme heroine, as well as being filled with great sex — including pegging!

Extended Review: Afterburn/Aftershock by Sylvia Day

BY Mandy Boles, APRIL 07, 2014 | PERMALINK

Six months ago I had the pleasure of interviewing Sylvia Day about her novella "Afterburn," the debut book for Harlequin’s new Cosmo Red Hot Reads imprint. I loved "Afterburn." In true Sylvia Day fashion, the book is filled with sleek settings, hot men, smart women and steamy sex scenes. "Afterburn" and its sequel novella "Aftershock," previously only available as separate e-books, are now on sale together in one print edition containing both stories — Afterburn/Aftershock

RT Read Along: Megan Hart's Every Part of You - Parts 4 & 5

BY Elisa Verna, APRIL 02, 2014 | PERMALINK

Megan Hart’s five-part serial Every Part of You concluded yesterday with the release of the final episode, “Takes Me.” As with most serials I try to read, I fell behind and read parts four and five together. What can I say, I like reading my books in one sitting just how I like binge-watching entire TV series at once. Gimme it all!

Part four starts out with Elliott and Simone acting like a “normal couple,” going on dates, canoodling — and not humping each other every chance they get because they’ve deciding to take things slow. We finally learn, through a visit with his sick stepmom Molly, about Elliott’s trauma, which is a common source of hero trauma in many BDSM-themed romances — his father was abusive and he doesn’t want to hurt women because he doesn’t want to be his father. Which, of course, means that when the sexual tension between Elliott and Simone is too much to bear and they get to some sexytimes, Elliott freaks out and acts like a complete ass when Simone once again asks him to hurt her sexually.
