Book Review: Beyond Shame by Kit Rocha

I am blown away by how much I not only liked, but loved this story! I have never read a Dystopian Erotica book before and I did not know what to expect. I am a huge fan of Erotica and especially the innocent woman introduced to a world she never could have imagined, but Dystopian books are not always my cup of tea. Kit Rocha has managed to combine the two into one of the best Erotica's I have ever read. 

Noelle has lived life in a world where she has been suffocated with the laws and wishes of everyone around her. She rebels and is punished in the worst way imaginable, she is exiled from Eden. Just when things are about to go from bad to worse, she is saved. She enters the world of the O'Kane gang and has her eyes opened to things she never new to dream about. 

The growth in Noelle is amazing. The fact that she has to learn to not enjoy something because she thinks its what she is supposed to do, but enjoy something for herself. Jas is an amazing teacher to her and an amazing protector. He truly wants only what is best for her and knows that he needs to make sure he does not suffocate her like she has been her whole life. No matter how much he wants her for his self, he knows he needs to take a step back. Their journey together is beautiful! 

Kit Rocha creates such engaging supporting characters as well and I just know that every single book in this series will be just as great as this one. I can't wait for more!

PROMO: Safeword Quinacridone by Candace Blevins

Date to be Published: 12/29/12

What happens when an introverted artist who only likes sex when it’s a one-night stand meets a computer-geek-extraordinaire with his own sexy secrets? Objectification, romance, pain, adoration, lots of kinky toys, and oodles and oodles of wonderfully imaginative sex.

Join Cara and Travis on their journey to mesh their distinctive sexual tastes into a loving relationship with blow-your- mind kink.

  1. Treating a person as an object for use, with no regard for a person’s personality or sentience.
  2. Regarding someone as a commodity; considering them merely an instrument towards one’s sexual pleasure.
  1. A woman is on her back at the edge of a tall bed with hands and feet bound together and restrained above her head. A curtain drapes from a canopy above and puddles on the backs of her thighs. The man about to penetrate her sees only female genitals available for use.
  2. A woman is dressed in a full latex blow-up doll costume with durable latex ‘pockets’ stuffed into her orifices. She is bound into a position giving easy access to all three holes at a party. Her face is completely covered excepting nose and mouth. The men do not know who is in the costume.

Safeword: Quinacridone is a stand-alone book. You do not need to have read the previous books in this series.
Warning: This title contains graphic language, consensual BDSM, extreme objectification, bondage, watersports (one scene), chemical play, fisting, temporary body modification with saline injections (one scene), and the use of toys including clamps, canes, plugs, paddles, whips, floggers, and zip-ties.

Candace Blevins is a southern girl who loves to travel the world.

She lives with her husband of 15 years and their two daughters. When not working or driving kids all over the place she can be found reading, writing, meditating, or swimming.

Candace writes romance books about characters who happen to have some extreme kinks. Relationships can be difficult enough without throwing power exchange into the mix, and her books show characters who care enough about each other to fight to make the relationship work.

Each book in the Safeword series highlights a couple with a different BDSM issue to resolve. All books are standalone books and can be read in any order, with the exception of the two Davenport books, since Safewords: Davenport and Chiffon is a sequel to Safeword: Davenport.

Book Review: The Fetish Box Part 1 by Nicole Camden

An enchanting eBook debut about a world where your fantasies come true and nothing is quite what it seems. Come on in to realize your heart’s darkest desire...

Virginal twenty-two-year-old Mary has just inherited a sex shop in Florida from her mother. After a long drive from California, she arrives at her deceased mother’s house only to be confronted immediately with two equally sexy strangers: the strong, silent John and the irreverent, taunting Max. She’s innocent, almost completely untouched, but feels a completely uncharacteristic pull to each man. Shocking even herself, she realizes it’s not an unwelcome desire. 

Max is a playboy who knows how to give women what they want, but John… John might just be able to give Mary something even she doesn’t know she needs…


I really liked the premise of this story. Virginal girl inherits a Sex Shop from a mother she never knew. Apparently her mother was very in touch with her sexuality. The apple definitely fell VERY far from the Tree. 

Enter two men who both manage to turn Mary on like no other men ever have. Here she is a virgin who has had no sexual experience and upon the first meeting with Max, she is acting like a common Hussy. 

I really liked what I have learned about both of the male leads. John is scarred both physically and emotionally. Max is a total playboy. He has several "regulars" when it comes to women and wastes no time going for sweet virginal Mary.  

My main complaint with this book is that it felt like half of a book. I would not recommend reading it unless you have Part 2 already in your possession. This part is mostly Mary deciding to give it a go with one of the men, but not much actually happens.

Book Review: S.E.C.R.E.T. by L. Marie Adeline

In S.E.C.R.E.T there are…
No Judgments. No limits. No shame.

Cassie Robichaud’s life is filled with regret and loneliness after the sudden death of her husband. She waits tables at the rundown Café Rose in New Orleans, and every night she heads home to her solitary one-bedroom apartment. But when she discovers a notebook left behind by a mysterious woman at the café, Cassie’s world is forever changed. The notebook’s stunningly explicit confessions shock and fascinate Cassie, and eventually lead her to S∙E∙C∙R∙E∙T, an underground society dedicated to helping women realize their wildest, most intimate sexual fantasies. Cassie soon immerses herself in an electrifying journey through a series of ten rapturous fantasies with gorgeous men who awaken and satisfy her like never before. As she is set free from her inhibitions, she discovers a new confidence that transforms her, giving her the courage to live passionately. Equal parts enticing, liberating and emotionally powerful, S∙E∙C∙R∙E∙T is a world where fantasy becomes reality.


This is an intriguing read. How often do you hear of women in their 30's or 40's who seem to have lost that spark? They have been divorced, don't feel sexy, low confidence, the list goes on. The S.E.C.R.E.T society aims to give these women back what they may have lost or never had in the first place.

Cassie is the perfect candidate for the program only she doesn't know it. The way these women select their candidates is not at all what you would think. It is not based on money or how much they can bring to the table, but by how much they truly need their awakening. 

Cassie's journey is an eye-opening one. Step by Step we are with her. I'm not going to lie, there were times when I wanted Cassie to just leave the program and grab on to one of the many male specimen she interacted with, but the way the story unfolded was quite perfect in the end. Except for, well the abrupt end. You think you are getting a nice little bow on top and then bamm. What would it be without a cliffhanger huh? This is to be a series, and I honestly think it could have ended with just the one book, but now that the twist has happened I am very excited to see what is in store for us next!

and much more! I write PNR, Contemp, SCI-FI, Erotic, and HORROR..... Yes I love the gore!
Currently working on Burned In Shadows... Due out sometime in January 2013.

Ty Langston
As a child, multi-published author Ty Langston loved to read about dragons and knights so
much that one day, her grandmother told her to "just write about them."
So she did.
From that day forward, she never left home without her pen, a notebook, and some kind of
music playing in the background. Her love of reading expanded from fantasy into science fiction,
and eventually into paranormal romance and erotica.
She enjoys different works from George Martin, Anne McCaffrey, Stephen King, and Jackie
Collins. But some of Ty's favorite writers are from the world of TV and film: namely, Tudors
creator Michael Hirst, and the late John Hughes.
Ty has a certificate in Broadcast Journalism along with a degree in Business Administration.
She is single and enjoys spending time with friends and family.

Riley Ross:
To date I haven't published anything yet but I love to write wrestling fan fiction, romance and
light erotica. I will be married for fifteen years this month to my best friend and Prince Charming
all rolled into one. I am mommy to two Syberian Huskies.
