“Toy Box” by Delphine Dryden (ebook)
This is a very hot story about rekindling a D/s relationship between a husband and wife who have let parenthood and life get in the way of their sexual life. There are no BDSM clubs or multiple partners here – just a great erotic romance featuring characters who are trying to recapture something. I’m not sure one can miss with anything by Delphine Dryden. She is fast becoming an auto-buy author for me.
“Retraining the Sub” by Jennifer Denys (ebook)
I couldn’t really get into this book about a master retraining a recalcitrant and bratty sub. I never believed that the heroine was submissive – and had no clue why she thought she was.
“Shades of Gray” by Maya Banks (review copy)
Review to come closer to this book’s December 31, 2012 release date.
“Beyond Shame” by Kit Rocha (ebook, review copy, NetGalley)
I have a new reviewer writing something up on this book. I finished this one several days and am not sure what I think of it. It is an erotic, dystopian romance. The world and the characters are compelling – but it is dark. I’m not sure if the ending is a happy for now or a happily ever after. I don’t think I will entirely make up my mind on this one until I read the next ones in the series.
“Training the Dom” by Christine d’Abo (ebook)
This is a sequel to the story “Dom for Sale.” It picks up after the events of the first book and visits with Liz and Master Gareth who are now in a relationship. However, Gareth is skittish about embarking on any type of committed relationship. He has no problem dominating or scene-ing with Liz, but is having trouble getting over the loss of his wife. This one has a nice sweetness to it (although it is hot as well).
“A Gentleman Never Tells” by Juliana Gray (review copy)
Review to come closer to this book’s November 6, 2012 release date.
