Protect. Obey. Sacrifice. These words are the mantra of my existence. I'm not sure if it's Titus Rogen inspiring my desire to go against what I am or my own DNA deviating. All I can think is how Titus will look when he meets his end. It trumps even my wish for freedom. In this moment, I want nothing more than to watch the life bleed from Titus's body. And I want it at my own hands.Titus. The Creator.I stare at my palms. Strength aside, I wonder if I'm capable of taking a life. A human life; one with a soul. And I wonder if that isn't easier than taking the life of an Imitation. At least humans have souls that live on. What do I have after this? Where will I go? Back into a syringe? Will Titus recycle me? Or will I be lost forever down a lab drain?We don't deserve that. We don't deserve him.Deserving and receiving are so very different here. And I am beginning to understand, to beat someone in this world, I'll have to play in it.

I was pretty sure I had this series all figured out. I didn’t. Deviation proved even more entertaining than Imitation, which was a great start to a series. I am now dying to read the final book, Generation. I recently reviewed the first book in this series, Imitation. This book is not a […]

Nearly a century ago the world was decimated by a magical war. In their defeat, elves were captured by humans, cut off from their magic, and broken down into lifeless, drone-like slaves.Avery is different. Somehow, her magic has always simmered beneath the surface. Never completely broken, she must pretend in order to survive. When Zander, her master's nephew, brings her magic out in full force, she finds out what it's like to truly be alive.Ripped from Zander's side and sent to The Farm, Avery doesn't know if she'll be able to hide her light and make it out alive. But there, she'll meet someone who knows her true purpose. The war isn't over, and if Avery can survive, she could be the one to set her people free. All it takes is a little hope and a Spark of Light.

I loved this book. Fantasy, suspense, love, magic, elves, rebellion, Spark of Light just had it all. The main character Avery is a girl I could get behind. She is different despite her best efforts to be like all the other elves. The spark within her cannot be ignored. This book starts off […]

I'm beyond pissed off with Callum Connors.Yeah-the Callum Connors, star of my favourite TV show...and all my most private fantasies.He's a self-confessed Dom, and he wants me, even though I told him outright that I'm not interested in submission or in him.But then I kissed him.What possessed me? I don't even remember who started it, me or him-just that I brushed against him, and then we were on the way to third base in the middle of the set.Maybe I should have told him no again afterwards, but I just wanted to escape before he tried to take it further. I didn't think I'd be able to resist him.I still don't.Now he's somehow thrown us together for two whole weeks, getting the studio to temporarily change my job from set decorator to his personal assistant. I can live with being his assistant, but I am not his damn submissive.No matter how sexy he is.

I just finished this book and all I can think is, What a great story! Not Your Damn Submissive is a standalone introduction in the Denial series from Amy Valenti. This book was easy to get hooked on since the characters are original and very likeable. Kat and Callum are both genuine in […]

When most girls her age attended southern socials to learn proper etiquette and grace, Nikki Seay skipped school, drank booze, and discovered her sexuality. She was a rule-breaker, risk-taker, and unapologetic about it all. In a chance encounter, she caught the attention of the wickedly compelling, town bad boy. Their connection was instant; intense. From deep within her, he drew out desires she didn't know she had; needs she didn't understand. She trusted him, his promises, and she willingly gave him power over her, but he stopped giving it back. He kept her gift and greedily took more, using it to control her, manipulate her, and hurt her.

Checking my email last week I got an update from VaginaAntics. I am a big fan of this site. The women that run it are really cool and write very well. The update was about Nikki Blue’s book Broken- a memoir of sorts. I hopped right over to amazon and snagged myself a […]
