Blurb:

Thirty people. Two hours. Only the strong will survive.

When Riddle decides to put on a slave hunt, the Subs Club is on board. Tops hunting bottoms in the woods with paintball guns? Yes. Captives strung up on whipping posts, at the mercy of their captors? Hell yes. But on the morning of the hunt, nothing’s going according to plan. Miles and Drix are at odds over Miles’s reluctance to move in together. Dave is determined to show up D, who thinks Dave won’t last two minutes in the woods. Gould finds himself torn between obeying his master’s orders and living out a longtime fantasy. And Kamen inadvertently becomes a double agent when he aligns himself with two different parties.

By the end of the hunt, alliances will be forged and broken, loyalties will be tested, relationships will be strengthened…and someone will barrel roll. Narrated by ten different characters, Slave Hunt tells the story of two hours in the woods that will change everyone forever. Or at least, remind them that love is the greatest victory of all.

Our thoughts:

This book was just a fun, fun, fun read! JA Rock brings all the players from The Subs Club and their partners back for an ultimate game of Hide and Seek. The setting is the grounds at D’s property. The mission is for the subs to elude being either captured/hit with a paint gun pellet or surrender due to imminent pelting. The sub that lasts the longest, wins. The Dom that captures the most subs, wins.

Every chapter is from a different view-point. D had me laughing almost as much as Kamen. I liked the moments of sheer laughter followed by some deep realizations by Miles, Drix, Dave and D. I still struggle with Gould but he seems to be growing more. His level of comfort with his submission and debasement has also grown.

This novel was a fantastic way to revisit the couples and see where their relationships are going, how they’ve grown or even how they are struggling. A few of the secondary characters from past stories get more page time and character development. That’s always an added bonus for fans of a series. As always, I just enjoyed the writing of JA Rock. It feels so authentic. The conversations, as witty and wacky as real life can be.

Overall, this has been a series that entertains and doesn’t disappoint. Each novel delivers!

Grand Opening (Kiss of Leather #4) by Morticia Knight

Released August 23, 2016

Published by Pride Publishing

Page count: 185 pages

Blurb:

The men of Kiss of Leather celebrate a beginning, but will the price be another ending?

The grand opening of Kiss of Leather draws near and the pressure is on to make sure everything is completed in time. Master Josh is a perfectionist, so no detail is too small in order to enhance the quality of the prestigious club they’ve all worked so tirelessly on. Unfortunately, the endless demands on Josh’s time have caused him to forget the more important things in life.

David’s love for Master Josh is overpowering at times, but lately, that love has been constantly tested. How can a sub in a fulltime D/s relationship serve a Master who’s never there? As things continue to deteriorate between him and Josh, David wonders if maybe his Master has tired of having to care for a sub full time.

By the time the grand opening arrives, Josh and David seem to have worked out their differences and David is hopeful for their future. The emotional collaring ceremony between Gavin and Kyle is a beautiful reminder of the power of love. But when an unexpected party crasher intrudes on the evening’s festivities, the men are reminded that there are still too many unanswered questions related to Corey’s kidnapping.

More than ever, the men of Kiss of Leather need to stand strong together. Will Josh and David be able to do the same?

Our thoughts:

The grand opening for Kiss of Leather is almost here and everyone’s stressed at the club. Kyle is trying to finish up his designs while also stressing over the upcoming collaring ceremony for him and Gavin. Derek is still in a rage over the kidnapping of Corey. Corey has been through so much with the prior abuse,  Derek is in overprotective mode to keep his boy safe. Stone has his hands full with his cheeky sub Mitchell, but Mitchell’s progress has been immense.

That just leaves David and Josh. The long time collard couple has it all figured out, right? Wrong. Josh is focusing all his time on the upcoming opening that he’s neglecting his sub. Even after a few eye-opening moments he continues to fall short. What an emotional time for David. My heart ached for his grief. For his loneliness and feelings of inadequacy. For his thoughts that he wasn’t needed and feeling abandoned. Josh fails hard and it’s a long tough road to get back to where they should have been all along.

Another stellar installment in the Kiss of Leather series. I’m always waiting for more from this series. I love these guys so hard!

Throughout high school, his successful career in the Marines, and as a BDSM Dom, he’s remained confident his partner is out there waiting to be found.

Our thoughts:

Joseph Lance Tonlet, the master of the word! He brings us another intricate story for the Tease and Denial series. In Wes’ Denial, we go back and explore Wes’ past and also his present. For every scene with Wes and Grif, there is a scene from the past. We have Wes in high school, as he’s exploring his sexuality and his desire to dominate. We also get to explore Wes the Marine. In the Marine Corps he gets a real taste for the need to hurt while dominating and it scares him. He has to figure out a way to control himself to keep the person he’s playing with safe. That’s when we’re introduced to Thomas and Henrik.

Tonlet has a way of weaving a story so that we’re hanging on every word, every page, as we keep turning to find out more. I really like Wes and Grif together. They have quite the dynamic. Grif’s insecurities and his strength of character are ever-present during their vanilla and chocolate play. Wes has a way of controlling every situation, dominating Grif, but also being completely respectful of the boundaries set. In between all of the domination and submission and the play/games, we actually have a true love story between Grif and Wes. Wes is always needing to reassure and console Grif that he will stay with him as he is very insecure in the fact that  Wes will truly be around forever.

Wes has two big secrets that he’s keeping from Grif. They’ve impacted what he will and won’t do with Grif in scene or chocolate. Those secrets rear themselves during the flashbacks. That how he discloses to Grif. But, we get the actually reliving. It’s intense and yet gives great insight into Wes and his mindset.

Grif is remarkable. In the end his strength is the ultimate and his love, deep. Tonlet leaves us shredded but it was a lovely end to a true lifelong romance.

Reborn (Bound Gods #4) by Adrienne Wilder

Reborn Bound GodsReborn (Bound Gods #4) by Adrienne Wilder

Published July 5th 2016

Kindle Edition, 307 pages

Sales link: Amazon

Blurb:

Leo promised to keep Aaron and Kaleb forever. Yet he’s left them with nothing more than a note with instructions to obey the commands of another god? A god who has the key to Kaleb’s collar. A god who will tell them nothing about what’s happened to Leo or where he’s gone.

Kaleb and Aaron both fear the worst. That Leo has not abandoned them, but left them because he won’t be coming back. Not because he doesn’t want to, but because he can’t.

Too many have died and the god-son is growing stronger. With no way for any god to track it, Leo has only one choice left. Fight fire with fire.

Or in this case Chimera against Chimera.

The problem is Leo has always maintained control of the beast within him. Using its natural senses to do what no other can. In order to stand a chance at tracking and killing the god-son Leo must give the Chimera within complete control.

And the Chimera might not let him return if he does.

Our Thoughts:

This felt like the end of one series but the beginnings for potentially another.

Leo is tested beyond measure as he has to come to terms with his Chimera, his inner monster. The god-son is on the loose and must be stopped. He’s killing doxies and older families who’ve supplied doxies to the Gods for years. Who made the god-son and why, still remains to be seen but Alton and the others have a pretty good idea.

We’re introduced to the goddesses for the first time. They’re old, wise and realize that it is time to join with the Gods again as the world will be changing. They must join as allies and prepare.

Leo must leave Kaleb and Aaron under the care of The Priest. He does a good job providing for the two doxies, but he’s not Leo. Kaleb is struggling because he can’t fathom why Leo would leave them and fears they may never see him again. Meeting more of the Gods and their talents was a nice addition to this story and series as a whole. The Priest was extremely interesting and being one of the oldest living Gods, his wisdom and past experiences were an asset.

The really interesting dynamic was between Kaleb and the Chimera. The bond they seem to build is like no other and it really hits an epic level while Leo is off to find and destroy the god-son. I enjoyed learning more of the history behind the gods, goddesses, doxies and ambrosia but for me it was all about Leo and Kaleb. When Kaleb flees and the Chimera hunts, there was nothing better. The result was quite beautiful and life changing for Leo and his brother within.

Such an interesting series this has been! I can’t wait to see if there is a spin-off or second part to the series. I’d love to know what happens to Pandora and the son of a god and goddess. Will Aaron stay forever? What about The Priest?! So many characters I hate to leave behind, but so many more we have yet to enjoy.
