Delayed Penalty by Bianca Sommerland

Delayed Penalty by Bianca Sommerland

All choices have consequences, only sometimes they’re . . . delayed.

Cortland Nash fled Dartmouth to avoid being arrested for murder, but his best friend, Ford Delgado, is in danger. Cort returns, prepared to keep his head down, and do whatever it takes to keep Ford breathing, but when he finds a beautiful young woman out in the snow, frozen in fear, his plans change. He needs to make sure she’s safe—even if the greatest danger is him.

Akira Hayashi never thought she’d overcome her fear of men, but the care of an experienced Dom helped her achieve so much more. She’s embraced her submissive side, and found her strength as the captain of the Dartmouth Cobras’ Ice Girls. There’s nothing she can’t do—except function when she’s mugged in a parking lot. The intimidating stranger who rescues her makes her feel things she never thought possible. The only problem is his connection with Ford, a man she’ll hate forever because she refuses to feel anything else.

With the constant threats from the crime lord he once called “Dad,” Ford Delgado has no room in his life for love. Unfortunately, Akira already has his heart—which is split in two when he discovers Cort is dating her. The betrayal has him lashing out, trying to move on, to grow as a Dom, and free himself from Kingsley’s criminal empire. He tries to forget what Akira means to him, but one look into her eyes shows him the last thing she needs is for him to let her go.

This e-book contains material not suitable for readers under 18. There are situations involving sex and violence and extreme emotions as a result. It also contains scenes that some may find objectionable, including BDSM and other rather enjoyable practices. As the characters are prone to exploring their sexuality, it is advised that readers be prepared to see some lines blurred. Or erased….

Author takes no responsibility for nonexistent lines. ;)

Author’s Note: The Cobras series has a continuing arc about the franchise, players, and previous relationships. Some plots continue through the series and may involve more than the main ménage. The series is best read in order.

About the Author
    Tell you about me? Hmm, well, there’s not much to say. I love hockey and cars and my kids…not in that order of course! Lol! When I’m not writing—which isn’t often—I’m usually watching a game or a car show while networking. Going out with my kids is my only downtime. I get to clear my head and forget everything.
    As for when and why I first started writing, I guess I thought I’d get extra cookies if I was quiet for a while—that’s how young I was. I used to bring my grandmother barely legible pages filled with tales of evil unicorns. She told me then that I would be a famous author.
    I hope one day to prove her right.

Review: Sorry it took me so long to get this review done, but between family things popping up and the evil crud making its way through my house...(sigh) Anyway with out fail here it is my loverlies. I hope you enjoy ;)

 After a traumatic experience with men you would think that Akira wouldn't want to be touched by ANY man, let alone turn to the safety and surety of a BDSM relationship. Well thanks to one man she has been able to work past that night and is ready to finally have someone to call Master.
 Getting out of the business was what Cort Nash wanted and then circumstances brought him back into the fold. So here he is again, trying to balance himself between the danger and the new love that he's found in the arms of Akira. But it will take something a little more to make their little family complete.

  That something comes in the form of Cort's long time friend and once charge Ford Delgado. After  receiving  a beating from his "fathers" thugs he calls in the only person he's ever really trusted. 
 Now things are starting to get  volatile and lives are at stake. Where will Cort come out, where will Ford? And what is Akira going to do once she finds out the truth?
 ;) Buy the book and find out.

Ms. Sommerland has certainly delivered a cocktail of surprises in this book. Whew! I could hardly stop reading it once I got started, her characters reacting in ways that a normal breathing person would react making the story all the more real. I loved it, too many stories out there put unrealistic expectations on the characters, not so with this one. I could see the scenario playing out, the intrigue and secrecy, the push to keep your loved one out of the shit storm...All of it. 
 Now I have to confess, I was a bit loss because I haven't read the books in between this one and the first one with Max, Oriana and Sloan. So it did take me a bit longer to work my way through the dynamics that had changed the new characters that had joined the group and so on so forth. But it was an awesome book over all and now I need to go back and read the rest of the books, so I don't feel so left out. ;)
 Looking forward to the next book in the Dartmouth Cobra's.

Styxx by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Styxx by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Just when you thought doomsday was over . . .

Centuries ago Acheron saved the human race by imprisoning an ancient evil bent on absolute destruction. Now that evil has been unleashed and it is out for revenge.

As the twin to Acheron, Styxx hasn’t always been on his brother’s side. They’ve spent more centuries going at each other’s throats than protecting their backs. Now Styxx has a chance to prove his loyalty to his brother, but only if he’s willing to trade his life and future for Acheron’s.

The Atlantean goddess of Wrath and Misery, Bethany was born to right wrongs. But it was never a task she relished. Until now.

She owes Acheron a debt that she vows to repay, no matter what it takes. He will join their fellow gods in hell and nothing is going to stop her. But things are never what they seem, and Acheron is no longer the last of his line. Styxx and Acheron must put aside their past and learn to trust each other or more will suffer.

Yet it’s hard to risk your own life for someone who once tried to take yours, even when it's your own twin, and when loyalties are skewed and no one can be trusted, not even yourself, how do you find a way back from the darkness that wants to consume the entire world? One that wants to start by devouring your very soul? 

Star Rating Five Stars

Having been a long time fan of Ms. Kenyons I was like a lot of you mixed on how this story was going to play out. After all wasn't Acheron the one who'd been wronged? Hadn't he been the one to be made a whore and used by any one that had the coin, and then betrayed by Artie? I was prepared to have those feelings reaffirmed or even my hatred of Styxx made even stronger. 
  But as we have all been shown there really is two sides to every story, and now we have the pleasure of seeing just what the "pampered prince" did, what he was like and how the God's Fucked him and Acheron (pardon the pun) royally and divinely.

  Growing up the son and heir to a great city state you would think that life would be a lovely bowl of honeyed figs right? Not so apparently for Styxx. His father doubted his parentage, and even went so far as to cut him to see if he would bleed, he sent him to the priests in  Dionysus's  temple because he thought he'd been possessed....The things that King Xeres did to Styxx are too numerous to count (and I don't want to give away too much ;-)  ) Add to all that his sister loathes the very ground and air that he breathes, and his twin has come to hate him as well. The mother that should love him, is drunk all the time and has even tried to kill him.

 Styxx is for all intent and purposes Alone.
  It takes a chance meeting at a small pond and a blind girl to allow him to know what true love is like. Until...yet again Apollo and his ever scheming ways rip those things from him.
 Fast forward eleven thousand years and everything is different, the world has changed, but so has Styxx. He had been locked in Hades on the vanishing isle by himself, no one to talk to, to socialize with....
  Wow...this is really beginning to sound like a book report. Blah! I hate those.
  So without giving to much more away.
Can Styxx overcome the tragic past that he and Acheron share, can either of them learn to be the brothers that they once claimed to be, or will their hatred and loathing kill everything and everyone that they have ever loved?

 Buy the book my loverlies and find out for yourselves. I promise Ms. Kenyon delivers and you won't be disappointed. Frustrated, emotional, and blindingly overcome with joy....Sure.

As always I can't wait to read the next installment in this ever changing series, or any of her other series for that matter.

Caged Warrior by Lindsey Piper

Caged Warrior by Lindsey Piper
 The first installment in this fierce and sensual new paranormal romance series features demonic gladiators, ruthless mafia villains, and a proud race on the brink of extinction.
Ten years ago, Audrey MacLaren chose to marry her human lover, making her an exile from the Dragon Kings, an ancient race of demons once worshiped as earthly gods. Audrey and her husband managed to conceive, and their son is the first natural-born Dragon King in a generation—which makes him irresistible to the sadistic scientist whose mafia-funded technology allows demon procreation. In the year since her husband was murdered, Audrey and her little boy have endured hideous experiments.
Shackled with a collar and bound for life, Leto Garnis is a Cage warrior. Only through combat can Dragon Kings earn the privilege of conceiving children. Leto uses his superhuman speed and reflexes to secure the right for his two sisters to start families. After torture reveals Audrey’s astonishing pyrokenesis, she is sent to fight in the Cages. If she survives a year, she will be reunited with her son. Leto is charged with her training. Initially, he has no sympathy for her plight. But if natural conception is possible, what has he been fighting for? As enemies, sparring partners, lovers, and eventual allies, Leto and Audrey learn that in a violent underground world, love is the only prize worth winning.
