Starting with a first date with a couple of swingers, followed by working through social anxiety and shyness, recognizing the importance of touch in life, evolving feelings about love and expectations, having threesomes, orgies, and prostate orgasms, going through a divorce, and leveling up in life and sexuality. For five years, Cooper S. Beckett has written for Life on the Swingset. The website was born out of the feeling that he'd learned enough in his whole year of swinging to tell other people how to live their non-monogamous lives. His hubris can be seen from space. Here he has collected personal essays, stories, erotica, and prescriptive "how-tos" into this memoir of his life on The Swingset. He may be biased when it comes to swinging, polyamory, and other forms of ethical non-monogamy (in fact, he most certainly is) but he doesn't sugar-coat it. He speaks honestly and earnestly about a unique way to live life, one that allows for sexual and loving growth and experimentation, a strong sense of community, and the ability to do what we all crave whether we know it or not: Be honest with ourselves and others about what we want sexually. And out of life.

My Life on the Swingset is a fun first person account of non-monogamy & swinging. Cooper S. Beckett is a fun writer who always includes wit and humor while keeping things honest. I enjoyed this series of articles about all things non-monogamy. Cooper has loads of advice for any couple curious about the […]

Everyone is exactly like me. There is no one like me. The rough fabric of my cotton nightgown chafes so I lie very still. They say my discomfort comes from being built like one accustomed to niceties. How is that fair when I myself have never experienced anything but copies of the real thing? My entire life is an imitation. I am an Imitation. I've been here five years. Training. Preparing. Waiting. And now I have a letter. My assignment has begun. I am a prisoner. I am not Raven Rogen. I am here to die. **Book one in the Clone Chronicles**

The idea of clones used to replace the rich is not something new. Imitation does a good job of capturing what it might be like for a clone. She is expendable, has no soul, and no feelings…or does she? What if she imagines freedom from her job as a clone? This story explores […]

Normal is so overrated. At least that's what seventeen-year-old Kate Triumph tells herself everyday. But the truth is she lives in constant fear that someone will discover how not normal she really is. With her startling speed and her unusual ability to heal, Kate believes she's something of a freak.

Then Andrew Shore arrives.

He claims he's her father, sticks around for a few days and leaves her a plane ticket. “Come to Mercer Island,” he says. “Give me a chance to get to know you.” Soon Kate is floundering in a world of new: new address, new car, new high school and, of course, new father. Not to mention Zack, her intriguing new neighbor, who makes her want to abandon her steadfast rule of never allowing anyone to get too close. But when she discovers someone is trying to kill her, life for Kate gets a bit more complicated. And a lot less normal.

Praise for Kate Triumph This book had me rapt from page one and I, quite literally, did not put it down for four straight hours until I was finished reading it. – Emily Liebert, 5 Star Review This. Book. Was. Awesome. Writing this review, reliving the book, makes me want to go back […]

Thirty years ago, civilization collapsed. Few survived. Ten years ago, the aliens arrived...and stayed.One year ago, I killed two men and went a little crazy. Today, the aliens took my brother and I will do anything to get him back.

In seventeen-year-old Jax Mitchell's world, humans are nearly extinct and alien settlers have arrived.

Until recently, the E'rikon have remained segregated in their city and ignored the few humans who have tried to engage them... but now they have taken Jax's brother. To rescue him, she forms an uneasy alliance with a teenage E'rikon left stranded in the woods. She agrees to guide him to the city if he sneaks her past the human-proof barrier. Too bad it's not that simple.

Jax, who cannot stand to be touched, finds that's she's drawn to the alien boy with bright green hair and jewel-like scales. And he's equally affected by her, the courageous redhead with haunted eyes. But she doesn't know the alien's true motives and he has no idea that she is much more than she seems.

In this world where alien and human are at odds, the connection forming between the two has consequences. What started off as a rescue mission sets a chain of events in motion which threatens not only the remaining humans and the growing alien society, but Earth itself.

This book didn’t really do it for me. The premise was pretty good, but there were too many issues with this story for me to love it. The world that these people live in is just too problem filled. There was some sort of sickness that killed off almost all the humans, then […]

BOOK ONE OF THE "OUTLIER" SERIES

Every citizen in Atlas, the last city on the planet, is born with a unique, special ability, and no one sleeps past the age of two. Except for Wick Lesser who, at seventeen, still sleeps.

Hiding this rare ability from the world, his father, who can calculate futures, trains him in self-defense and combat while his healing-gifted mother works an unglamorous job in the muds and keeps his secret safe with the help of Wick's older brothers. The Lesser family of the ninth ward slums manages to keep afloat, suffering under the corrupt, greed-driven Kingship of the Lifted City.

But not for long.

In the first installment of the Outlier series, Wick's unassuming slumborn life soon explodes into a full-speed adventure of danger, betrayal, and self-discovery when he secretly joins an underground rebel movement working to take down the oppressive ruling power. But the task is far from easy, and there are more adversaries than Wick can count. Not to mention the complication of an intense, unplanned attraction ... to someone on the wrong side of the rebellion.

Powerful forces are gathering to put an end to the uprising, including the city's elite crew of law-enforcers called Guardian, of which Wick's own two eldest brothers are sworn members, and all corners of the slums grow ever restless: a lustful boy with blackened eyes leads a violent street gang, with Wick's younger brother as his newest recruit. A cunning orphaned girl whose ability is to be unseen, sees everything. And high up in the Lifted City, a privileged and wealthy boy yearns for an exciting new life in the slums.

Their world is at a precipice of great change. No one is safe.

The rebellion has begun.

*Reader discretion advised: contains M/F and M/M romance, mild violence, and adult language.*

This book is a epic tale of rebellion. The world within this story is completely distinct in its originality. This is not a love swept dystopian tale. Outlier is the story of the start of a rebellion. It takes place in a world so different from anything I have ever imagined with characters […]

BOOK TWO IN THE BOURBON SERIES

How did I become a Jett Girl?

Hell if I know, one moment I’m working at the premiere spot for creepy men and sloppy drunks and the next, I’m being whisked away by a moody ex-boxer and a mysterious man in a suit that overlooks his girls from the third floor of the Lafayette Club.

It wasn’t easy but now that I’m a Jett Girl, there is only one thing on my mind and that is Jett Colby.

He has captured me, stolen my heart and entwined my soul into his at such an alarming rate that it seems almost difficult to breathe without him holding me, touching me, kissing me...

He won’t give me his heart though, he won’t let me own every last inch of him and not because he doesn’t want to, but because he doesn’t want to jeopardize my ambiguity.

Because of this, there is only one thing standing in my way when it comes to completely and utterly living my life with Jett Colby and it’s called Lot 17.

This book made me feel like awwe, and then like ahhh! What a great sequel! Being a Jett Girl is almost as good as the original and better in some areas.  Get ready for shower scenes with hot men and phone sex as well. This book rocked my socks off. I want some […]

*BOOK TWO (BEING A JETT GIRL) COMING DECEMBER 8th 2014*

"Meghan Quinn has the ability to make you laugh so hard you pee your pants one second then turns around and writes a scene so emotional she rips your heart out!!! "

"Goldie steals the show with her mouth and one liners through the whole book. Her strong will and bluntness was extremely refreshing and I loved every hysterical moment. I found my face hurt a lot through this book from smiling so much."

How did I start the Lafayette Club?

Well, I’m in the business of saving tarnished souls. I hand pick girls from the street who have no options left in life and give them an opportunity they can’t possibly refuse.

They come to work in the Lafayette Club which is full of EXQUISITE DEBAUCHERY, where influential men come to conduct business and lap dances are considered a fine art.

The girls are trained, they are morphed, they are educated, they follow the rules of the club and they know to submit to me. They live by my motto, no relationships, no love, just sex.

They are never touched, only by me, they are never completely naked, only with me, and their personas are entirely anonymous. The only person who knows who they truly are, is me, Jett Colby.

If these girls were ever seen on the streets of New Orleans, you would never know they were a Jett Girl

This book is like my secret shame. I fucking loved it for all the wrong reasons, but they felt so right. Goldie was a girl after my own heart with her street slang and four-letter vocabulary. Goldie and Jett were a magical combination for me. Although, I really wanted her to hook up […]

Book 2 in the Denial series.

I’m just waiting for the inevitable.

Three years ago, I broke my submissive’s spirit completely. After she fled, I swore I’d never call myself a Dominant again. No one who screwed up as badly as I did is worthy of that title.

Then Alexandra Ashford signed up for my personal training sessions—smart, confident, yet perfectly willing to follow my every order. The kind of submissive every Dom dreams about, even if she doesn’t know it.

I knew I had to keep my distance.

My intentions were good, but she seduced me anyway. I’d stayed away from women for three years, yet it took her three days to get past my defences. Now I can’t make myself let her go. She’s more than I deserve; everything I want.

But keeping vanilla? That’s gonna be hell.

All I can do is hope she never begs me to tie her up and hurt her, though my Dom side craves it. If we cross that line, I have to leave her. I can’t break another submissive.

I can’t be her damn Dom.

You may remember I reviewed a book called Not Your Damn Submissive not to long ago. That was a 5/5 star read and it totally blew me away. Amy Valenti has the next book in the series out now, Not Your Damn Dom. I was so excited to get my hands on this […]

This book is on tour at the right time of year. Eventide was a great scary read, perfect for October. This YA fantasy had me staying up late and reading into the wee hours of the night. I loved this story. I loved the magic, the faeries, the other worldliness, this book had […]
