COVER REVEAL – Unscripted by Christy Pastore @ChristyPastore

Here is the gorgeous cover for Christy Pastore’s new book.  I look forward to reading it real soon.  Be sure to add it to your TBR list.

 

Unscripted (The Scripted Series #1)

by Christy Pastore

Genre : Erotica Romance
Publication Date : December 9, 2014
Cover Design : Mayhem Cover Creations

Synopsis

“His gaze on me was intense, I couldn’t look away. I felt as if I was revealing my entire soul to him in this moment.”  
 

 

The range of emotions I had experienced with Ronan felt like a topsy-turvy spinning roller coaster. Suddenly I was awake for the first time in what felt like years. Every fiber of my being was filled with heated desire, passion, lust and fear, and all I wanted was more… more of everything, more of him. How had I just lived these past few years only going through the motions?  But, as glorious as all of this was, was I kidding myself? Could it be real? Or just a moment in time – a few days of thrilling and scary excitement rolled into one? The moment before you hit that first big drop on your favorite coaster, you fall, and then it’s over.
 
This isn’t your typical Hollywood fairy tale where the typecast ordinary girl next door meets the famous handsome actor and they fall in love. Despite the emotional and physical scars that serve as reminders of Holliday Prescott’s past, she has evolved into a strong young woman. Ronan Connolly has loved and lost, but he’s never been in love. The weight of Hollywood’s expectations and the scripted games people play have left him bruised but not broken.
 
He’s always followed everyone else’s script and she wrote her own. That was until fate swept in with other plans.
 
MATURE CONTENT
This story contains sexually explicit material and is intended for mature individuals over the age of eighteen.

Guest Post – Mina Vaughn – Blog Tour – How To Reprimand Your Rock Star @MinaVaughn

 How To Reprimand Your Rock Star

how to reprimand your rockstar

Thank you Mina for this awesome guest post.  I love athletes!  Yes, baseball pants are sexy too. ~Susi

 

Guest Post: The Allure of the Athlete

By Mina Vaughn

 

Whether or not you read romance, you have to agree: athletes are hot. I’ve always loved the image of sweaty, muscled men battling it out on some type of field. Hockey players, soccer players, baseball players, all and each have a special place in my heart. And damn, baseball uniform pants are pretty much the sexiest uniform ever, amirite?

 

But let’s talk about female athletes for a minute. I’ve rarely seen any in romance before, so when I thought of who would be a perfect match for my submissive rock star, Keaton Lowe, instantly I thought I’d love to write a female athlete.

 

Female athletes rock. Whether it’s kick-ass tennis players like Anna Kournikova and the Williams sisters, or Olympic skiers or volleyball players or lacrosse players, sporty chicks are hot and deserve their place in the romance world. When I thought about Thea, the heroine from How to Reprimand Your Rock Star, I really wanted to write about the college experience and what her sexual awakening as a domme would be like. To me, the pinnacle of women in college sports is of course the prolific UConn Huskies. They are a force of nature. Even if you don’t follow college basketball, you know that the UConn women are champs.

 

I think having a very fit Domme makes sense. She’s going to be using her body for both pleasure and possibly punishment, so I think Thea’s workouts will help her with that. I also think she’s intimidating, being a tall young woman. But she’s also young, naïve and really beautiful. I don’t think Dommes all need to be scary and intimidating, but I wanted Thea to have many facets to her.

 

I also think we live in a world where women play more sports than they used to, and I think this is a population that ought to be represented in romance. I want people to be able to cheer for Thea, not just for conquering Keaton, but in her own right as a basketball phenom.

 

Keaton’s turned on by Thea’s fire—the way she takes him down a peg, the way her face blushes when she’s angry, and her dominance on the court and off. The notion of a sexy heartbreaker of a rock star needing someone like Thea, a headstrong firebrand who doesn’t care who he is, was a huge turn-on for me. I love the fact that Keaton is worshipped by millions, but Thea doesn’t care. She’s got her head in the game and her eyes on the prize. Heroines who have personal stakes and goals outside of love interests are always my favorite, so I tried to make Thea strong in that respect. I hope people agree!

 

Let’s hear it for the boys and girls of the court, the field, and the rink! So, who are your favorite sexy athletes, and why?

 

Thanks for having me!

BLOG TOUR – Review – How To Reprimand Your Rock Star by @MinaVaughn #DommeNation

How To Reprimand Your Rock Star by Mina Vaughn

 

I am so excited to share this review today.  I’ve been dreaming about a blue eyed rock star for days.

how to reprimand your rockstar

In this fun and saucy romance novel, all-star college basketball player Thea dominates on the courts—and off—with a rock star who is determined to win her over.

Thea is a star basketball player at UConn on track to be Rookie of the Year. That is, if she can stay focused on the game. Lately that hasn’t been going so well, as her knee has been bothering her. But that’s not the only thing on her mind…

Ever since rock star Keaton Lowe surprised her in the girl’s locker room, Thea can’t stop thinking about him. On top of his status and enticing ways, he seems to know everything about her. But some of his actions cross the line, and Keaton needs to be punished. Will Thea keep her head in the game, or get distracted by her other favorite pastime—reprimanding her rock star?


 

My Review

Clever, Witty, Fun, Naughty and Oh sooo good!  Those are the words I can think of to describe Mina Vaughn’s second book  How To Reprimand Your Rock Star.  Let me tell you, I loved this book and am excited to share my review.

Mina writes amazing stories.  There is always something unexpected in her writing which is one of the reasons why I love to read her words.  From the moment I started this book, I couldn’t put it down.  Her characters are refreshing and different.  Pair a beautiful female basketball player with a hot rock star, throw in some kink, and you have a 5 star read.  From the first page to the last, you will enjoy every moment.

I loved Thea and enjoyed discovering a new word along with her.  She is not the typical fragile female.  She is focused on her athletic career and education.  Yes, she is an athlete.  Thea meets Keaton Lowe and he is totally swoonworthy.  Appropriate nicknamed Baby Blue, he “rocks” her world.  This sexy rockstar enters her life and gives new meaning to the term “Rock God.”

This is not your typical love story.  The Rock God may be used to taking the lead on stage,  but Thea proves to be the one in charge.

I highly recommend this book.  Be sure to add it to your TBR list today. You will love it!

It is a spanktastic read! #DommeNation

I gave this book 5 stars!

Transports of Delight by Benjamin McQueen @HisDelights

transports of delight cover

Synopsis

The collected short stories and poetry of erotica author Benjamin McQueen are finally here. Here for the first time you can immerse yourself fully in the world of a real life Dominant. See what it’s like to really live the life, understand the man behind the myth and get to know how the dynamic between a Dom and his Sub really works.

 

My Review

Have you ever wondered what thoughts lurk inside the mind of a real life dominant?  If so, then I suggest you read Transports of Delight, a delicious collection of erotic short stories and poems written by Benjamin McQueen, a real life dom. This collection contains Making You Mine and other erotic delights.

Making You Mine  follows two characters, a dom and his sub as they get to know each other through various erotic encounters.  I must say, after blushing several times, I felt every emotion along the way. While the story is erotic in nature, there is an innocence in the characters that captivates the reader. The story is well written in parts from the dom’s point of view. The sexual scenes are sizzling hot!  I most enjoyed the fact that each part of the story details another encounter filled with stronger emotions and anticipation.  I admit, I felt the same anticipation as the characters on this journey.  Each steamy encounter builds on the previous, leading to the ultimate encounter.

You will also read A Writing Life another short erotic story and an excerpt of his upcoming piece called Finding Alice.  The poetry in this collection is sexy and steamy.  Tastefully written, this book, Transports of Delight, will transport you to the world of a dom and his sub and may answer those lingering questions you may have on this type of relationship. I must say, reading Benjamin’s writing has made me understand the dynamics of this lifestyle.

I gave this book 4.5 stars and recommend it to lovers of erotica and those curious to learn more.

About the Author 

Benjamin McQueen is a real life Dominant.

Born and bred in the beautiful Sussex countryside, he currently lives near to the historic town of Arundel, West Sussex.

He has a love of all things creative. Find him at the local independent cinema watching foreign language films or under a tree reading Kurt Vonnegut. He drinks whiskey and eats pasta, far too much. Is obsessive about sports, only the healthy English created ones and loves The Jam, The Who and The Beatles.
Having been in the BDSM lifestyle for ten years he felt a great urge to put some of his world down on paper. Making You Mine is the first attempt at portraying this world. It’s his aim to show the true companionship of the Sub/Dom lifestyle. A life full of love, trust, devotion and discovery.
He lives with his dog Pangloss not far from the sea and spends most of his day humming stupid tunes and dreaming of the naughtier side of life.

Passion Between The Wines

Read a page sip some wine
Love his erotic style
Hear a noise look to the door
See your partners smile
Smile back, invite him
Share the wine and word
Aware that when he reads them
His passion will be stirredKnow that he loves the days
When you sip and read
The effect the words have on you
Knows you’ll be in need
Book and glass down spread your arms
He enters your embrace
Deep wanting kiss, clothes removed
Your hearts begin to race The foreplay from the poems read
Ensures you are slick
Your hands wrap round his member
He hardens up so quick
Lifts you up and carries you
To your field of dreams
Place you down and ravishes
The room soon filled with screams

Later as you lay there
Secure in his hold
You softly thank the poet
For his words of gold
Your partner hears your word of thanks
“Thank him from me too
I love the sensual effect
His hot words have on you”

by Mark Davis
I hope your day is filled with passion!

About the Poet, Mark Davis
Growing up in Australia, I have always been a keen observer of the people around me and from schoolboy fantasies about my teachers or the older girls.. or whichever superheroine was around at the time, my mind never stopped coming up with scenarios that inevitably ended up with a mess somewhere. None of these fantasies were forgotten and as new experiences created new fantasies, and with the rich tapestry of new people I have met along the way I started to write these fantasies down, sharing both my erotic stories ,poetry and various other musings on life with a small circle of friends and now with you . I hope you enjoy and follow
