Review: With a Kiss

With a Kiss
With a Kiss by Kim Dare

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Kim Dare is known for her steamy BDSM writing. Doms, subs, leather, whipping, spanking, bondage; you'll find that and more in her work. But I think this is hands down my favorite story of hers. While it is a BDSM romance, it's so much more. Liam is a volunteer at a hospital. He sits with a patient and chats to keep them company. He has been assigned to Marcus (a vampire, but apparently that's ok in this reality. Though that's never really explained, they are fully intergrated with human society), who has been in a coma for three years. Liam also has an abusive boyfriend. After a bad beating, he ends up waking Marcus up with a chaste kiss on New Years Eve.

And what follows next is such an amazing love story. Liam is frightened of most things, but Marcus treats him with such care and patience (all the while suffering from the after effects of a vampire being in a coma for three years). Liam opening up to Marcus (and the outside world) and Marcus' feelings for his 'pet' is just such a fantastic read.

A great twist on a classic fairytale!!

Review: One Real Thing

One Real Thing
One Real Thing by Anah Crow

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

OMG, the love I have for this book knows no bounds.Everything about this book hits my hot spots. The characters, the pacing, the writing, the relationship (the subtle...and then not-so-subtle D/S overtones throughout the book were spot-on and fucking perfect). I even enjoyed the secondary characters as they were pretty well fleshed out. It's a friends-to-lovers story, but so.much.more. Watching Holly and Nick each crash and burn in their respective lives and then figure out what they have both been missing out on is just amazing. I can't recommend this book enough!

Nighttime Wishes
Nighttime Wishes by M.A. Church

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4 stars! I freakin loved this! I had no idea what was going to happen...and then I had to keep reading to find out what happens next! And its book one! Can't wait until the next book! (seriously, when is it coming out?)

Pure, fantasy m/m sci-fi (which was exactly what I was in the mood for and just didn't know it) :)
