Book Review: Asking For It (Asking For It #1) by Lilah Pace #GTBA15
Asking For It strictly follows the prime directives of kink: Safe, Sane, and Consensual. The characters use safe words, negotiate limit lists (both what they will or won't do for "now" and for "ever"), and pre-plan their scenarios. There is an intimate level of trust established that is sacred and binding, and both characters respect what that represents and how it protects them while also binding them together even as total strangers.
For those who enjoy the non-con subgenre of romance, Asking For It is a rare find.

Early Book Review: Shards of Hope (Psy-Changeling #14) by Nalini Singh
If you're considering reading Shards of Hope, you're probably already a fan of Nalini Singh's Psy-Changeling series. If not, and you're looking to try it out, start from the beginning with Slave to Sensation. Fans of Singh know she is a master of the slow burn, and that technique meshes perfectly with her Psy-Psy couple romances. We've already seen a few Arrow stories, so I was a little worried about Aden and Zaira coming off as tired or repetitive, but I shouldn't have been. This is Nalini Singh: she never disappoints.

Early Book Review: Beyond Innocence (Beyond #6) by Kit Rocha
As with every other Beyond series story so far, Beyond Innocence is a hedonistic, voyeuristic ride, this one driving us through the brotherhood of Sector Four's ruling O'Kanes right into the heart of Eden's corrupt politics. If dystopian snares your attention... if menage draws you in... if erotica gets you hot, and you haven't read the Beyond series yet, you must start immediately! The first book is Beyond Shame. Read it. Love it. Swoon over the O'Kane fight nights and private parties, then drool for more right along with the rest of us!
