Two-fer Review: Unmasked & Revealed by Lissa Matthews

****Double Review****

The reviews today are Book 2 and Book 3 in the Masked Series.
If you want to see the review of Book 1 Masked, please visit my link here!

~ Ahead of time... If M/M is not your cup of tea, just drop by and tell me Hi! ~

Series: Masked, Book 2
Publisher: Self
Genre: Contemporary M/M BDSM Erotic Romance
Length: Short Novella
Format: eBook

With his mask secured in place, Bobby enters Abyss with a single purpose, a single desire. Thor. It’s been a busy week and he’s so anxious to see the dominant again, he doesn’t even take the time to head home and change into more appropriate fetish club attire. He hasn’t been able to shake the lust and memories of how it felt to be under Thor’s hands, to surrender to his need for a man, for Thor, and it drives Bobby to the one thing, the one place he knows he can find fulfillment.

Thor doesn’t flog men, at least not in public, but the undeniable attraction and need he feels the moment he spots Bobby, dressed more for a business meeting than a night out with lifestylers, compels him to make an exception that will change everything he’s known and everything everyone has thought about him.

Nervous and stripped of his shirt, Bobby is strapped to a St. Andrews Cross, surrendering to the pleasure that is Thor with a flogger. Thor’s whispered words of need and encouragement strengthen Bobby’s resolve that tonight is the night he must remove the mask and reveal his identity, that tonight he must reveal his longing for more than one night, once a week club meetings.

Will Thor still want him? There’s only one way to find out…

Pleasure, confessions, and cravings so strong lead to an inevitable confrontation when the mask comes off and Bobby’s real identity is revealed in Unmasked.

For those of you that know me... and those that don't this is my little statement about short books.... I do not judge short stories on the rush of their relationships, because they are just that - short stories. So, yes the relationships always could have been drawn out more, yea it seems like they fall in love to fast and of course the story could have been made longer... but it is a short story. So with that said.... here is my review...

A statement I tend to make to let you, my adorable followers, know what I think of the author... So, if you stalk me enough, you will know that I love Ms. Matthews and her work and her work with m/m is no difference. And this story is no different! Unmasked picked up right where Ms. Lissa left me in Masked.... Except this time... The mask comes off.

The story continues with Thor **That name just make me... Well.... You know** and Bobby. You are left still wondering what will happen when Bobby takes off the mask... Even though this is a short story... You are left wondering is Bobby going to put it all on the line for a man that has not fully accepted Bobby.... Do they allow all the walls to fall down and just be the real men they are... Will Bobby crumble under the pressure of keeping up with his facade?

I love this story... Watching two men come to terms with each other... with life and with the other... I hope you join me on this journey that starts off behind a mask....


Series: Masked, Book 3
Publisher: Self
Genre: Contemporary M/M BDSM Erotic Romance
Length: Novella
Format: eBook


The mask has come off, the closet door opened, and the acceptance in revelation has begun…

Thor sent Bobby home from Abyss with a few conditions. Have the hard conversations with those closest to him and arrive at Thor’s home, midnight, the following weekend. He’s been instructed not to call, not to email, not to contact Thor in any way. Simply do as told or…not.

Bobby comes to Thor a different man, changed somewhat for having come out of the closet to his parents and his best friend. The weight of his secret longings has been lifted and his desire to begin a relationship full of exploration and submission with a man is within his grasp. All it takes is following Thor’s orders, submitting to Thor’s rules, offering himself up to Thor’s dominance.

Can Bobby truly give over his tightly held onto control to the one man who drives him to his knees? Can Thor look beyond Bobby’s womanizer reputation to the longing for acceptance within?

Find out in, Revealed, the third installment in Lissa Matthews’ Masked series

So with that said.... here is my review...

Now this story is a little longer... But oh so worth it!!!! I am not even sure I can write about it because it was just that good! Thor... damn that man gives me the chills just typing his name... I mean seriously, you should see him... All man, All alpha, all dominate, built like a God, blond hair... all wrapped up in a kilt and kick ass combat boots!! Now, what woman would not get the chills!!!! And then Bobby... he is just as sweet as apple pie! Okay, maybe not as sweet as apple pie, lol. But still you know what I mean. Anyway... watching their relationship bloom... Or grow is just amazing. Watching the layers being stripped away and the man being exposed to the core is just as raw a you will get.

Ms. Lissa, what is next???? You know I will be bugging you until I get more... Hey, maybe a f/f??? LMBO!!!! This is an awesome story line you will want to read from the beginning to the end!!! Yes, you have to read from the first one to the last one!!!!
Now go read!

*Giveaway & Spotlight* The Fever & The Fury by Stephanie Draven

The Lair is happy to Spotlight this hotttttt hottttttttt story by Ms. Stephanie Draven.... And if you are really good... We have a giveaway at the end!!!

Revenge is a dish best served hot!

Phaedra, a fury, is bound to make Lieutenant Luke Lazaros atone for his supposed crime, but her usual method of inflicting pain doesn’t work very well on a phoenix with the power to be reborn every time he dies. However, each rebirth leaves him with an overwhelming need for sex. Phaedra’s new plan: to drive Luke mad with desire.

But Phaedra has never touched anyone—even herself—except to cause pain. She’s an innocent when it comes to pleasure…but Luke isn’t. His touch is a revelation, arousing a passion in Phaedra that is as delicious as it is terrifying. For no matter how much she wants Luke, giving herself to a man risks awakening her goddess’s wrath.


She'd already killed him twice this week.

Monday, the harpy bitch grabbed the wheel just as he was making a tight turn on a cliff-side highway. The car jumped the barrier and exploded in a fiery crash of glass and twisted metal at the bottom of Moraca Canyon.

On Wednesday morning, he'd chanced taking a shower and she dropped a hair dryer in with him, sending a deadly shock through his wet body.

It wasn't even the weekend and she was already trying to kill him a third time.

Luke had awakened to the sinuous slide of her body atop his and, for one groggy moment, he'd enjoyed the carnal sensation of a woman in bed with him.

Then her knee came crushing down on his windpipe.

Now Luke thrashed upon the mattress, grabbing at her supple thighs, trying to throw her off. The curve of her breast brushed his arm, her moist lips parted and she clutched at his face as if she were going to draw him into an intimate embrace…just before fingernails like talons cut his flesh to bloody ribbons.

Or at least that's what it felt like.

With the lightest touch, she could put an ordinary mortal man in complete agony. But he wasn't an ordinary mortal man and she should have known better than to touch him.

"Atone," the fury demanded, her voice driving needles of agony into his spine.

Luke was desperate enough to consider it. Anything to get rid of her. Anything to make the pain stop. Anything that might relieve him of the memories that haunted him. The blood in the sand and all the lies…

Take the money, Luke. There'll be more where that came from.

His traitorous lips parted in surrender, ready to tell the fury whatever she wanted to hear, but then he felt his square jaw clench tight in stubborn refusal.
No. Screw atonement and regret. Luke would rather die again.

Her lithe legs wrapped around his waist like a vise. They were locked together as tightly as lovers and in blind suffering he banged the back of his skull on the headboard. It started like a fever, a sexual rush of heat that seared its way through his veins, pulsing through his hammering heart, racing to his groin.

Damn it. He liked this villa, but he'd burn the place down to get free of her if he had to. Sparks leaped from his fingertips to the bedsheets and the scent of scorched linen rose to his nostrils. The fire would obey him—it was the one goddamned thing in his life he still had any control over—so Luke made the fire rise higher, engulfing them both in a flash of flames and searing pain.

His bones went white-hot, molten beneath his skin, and he screamed. He was turning to ash. He was burning her too, burning her alive. He could have held onto her. He could have forced her to share his torment to the bitter end, but he flung her away. And her tumbling body was the last thing he saw before he died….

Phaedra was accustomed to inflicting pain, not suffering it. But now every cell in her body screamed in protest as her burned skin rose up in blisters. She was immortal. She could never die. That didn't mean she couldn't feel pain, and making this man miserable had somehow become her own personal torment.

She lay dazed in agony on the floor, smoke filling her lungs while Lieutenant Luke Lazaros burned alive before her very eyes. Gods of Olympus, he was stubborn. He should have broken by now, but he was only getting more unmanageable. None of the men she'd been sent to torture had ever been so obstinate. Then again, she'd never been unleashed upon a phoenix before.

In the light of the crackling blaze, Phaedra's blistered body healed, new pink flesh knitting over the old with miraculous speed, and it occurred to her that the fire alarm wasn't shrieking. A quick glance up at the scorched ceiling told her that he'd disabled it. That he'd planned for this exact circumstance. He was handy that way. Good with modern gadgets. And a born strategist. He'd started anticipating her. Adapting…

All at once, the conflagration on the bed extinguished itself and a burst of air dusted her with Luke's charred human remains. A bit of stagecraft on his part.

Of course, she'd seen him do this before—rise from the ashes as a new man, his dark curly hair cut in sharp military style, his name and blood type displayed upon frayed patches on his desert fatigues. A backpack full of cash in his right hand.

This was how he looked the moment he was war-forged. The instant he stopped being an ordinary mortal man and became a monster. But as many times as she watched him die, she couldn't enjoy it. Watching him now, she took no satisfaction in his shudder of revulsion at the feel of a new body that wasn't his own. Nor did it encourage her to see the half hostile, half haunted look in his eyes as he tried to remember himself. Shaking his head as if to fasten upon his old memories, he caught her look of dismay and gave a dark smile-that-was-not-a-smile.

"What's the matter?” Luke asked. “Didn't expect me to be so hot in bed?"

Given that she was clutching the burned and blackened remains of her clothing against her body, Phaedra didn't appreciate the sexual innuendo. It didn't surprise her though. Every time the lieutenant was reborn, he battled overwhelming hunger. He'd be ravenous now, for food, drink…sex.

Still, he grabbed one of his white dress shirts from a drawer and tossed it to her. "Here. You can wear this."

The gallant gesture was starkly out of place considering their situation. Phaedra eyed her nemesis as she fastened the buttons, disconcerted by his scent on the shirt and how it mingled with the perfume of her newly healed skin. "Does this mean you're ready to be redeemed, Luke Lazaros?"

"Just means I was brought up right," Luke said through his teeth. "And that an officer falls back on his training in a crisis. Or maybe I've just always fantasized about a leggy woman wearing nothing but my shirt. Until I get rid of you, I might as well improve the scenery."

"How many times must we go through this?" Phaedra asked, ignoring the predatory glare in his eyes. She rose to her feet. She was tall, but he was taller. She was hard-bodied and imposing; even before they felt the torture of her touch, most men had the sense to cower. But not this man. "There is no getting rid of me, Lieutenant. Once a fury is unleashed upon a criminal, she's unbreakably bound to him until he atones or is driven to insanity."

"I'm not a criminal," Luke snapped. "And I will find a way to be rid of you."

I hope you do find a way, Phaedra thought. Because she was every bit as stuck with him as he was with her.

*Giveaway* Wanna Be His Dark Bond... by Ms. Anne Marsh

The Fallen – Book #2


Zer is no angel—well, not anymore. He’s explored every flavor of sin imaginable, drinking in the pleasures of humanity. But now he must find the woman who carries his salvation in her very blood…a woman like Nessa St. James.


Nessa has considered the bargain the Fallen offer. Anything she wants in exchange for accepting Zer’s bond? No way. Not her. Not when she finds out about the mind-blowing ritual involved, and the marks of surrender that will ink her skin. But with a serial killer to stop and centuries of experience on his side, this is one job Zer’s going to nail.

An Excerpt.....

Zer made the run to G2’s, coming into the club from the roofline because he had energy to burn and he got off on the sheer physical pleasure of pounding across the rooftops, leaping the empty spaces between the buildings. Beautiful thing about all that space was that you just never knew when your foot might slip. If only it was that easy to finally bite it. Put an end to millennia of emptiness. To the suspicion that maybe, just maybe, you’d been exiled from the Heavens because you weren’t good enough and not because of a well-engineered set-up.

Security met him as soon as his boot hit the rooftop, of course—because Zer’s lieutenant, Brends, wasn’t an idiot and the male looked after his own with the tenacity of a starving hound—but the patrol recognized his face, even before he snarled the password. Everyone knew who Zer was. The sire. The one who was supposed to lead the Fallen out of this shit storm and back to glory. Never mind that he was at least a thousand years overdue.

Two males, one on his left and the other flanking his right. If they’d wanted to take him out, they’d missed their chance. He’d been vulnerable when his boot hit the edge, but now he was on solid ground.

Leather duster flying around him, he took the stairs down to the club floor, taking out his frustration and his restless energy on the anonymous stairwell with the stark linoleum and aseptic guardrails. Moving silently downwards, his shadow gliding over the steps stretching before him, he considered what he’d learned in the last week.

The nightly fights against the rogues preying on the human population of M City were only the tip of the iceberg. The desire to drink human emotions was worse than any drug. The rogues were Fallen who either no longer could or would control their urge to drink human emotions. Lost to that dark hunger, they rampaged out of control, insane and indulging in sprees of violence as they drank their human victims to death.

Worse, Cuthah, the corrupt Dominion who’d engineered the Fallen’s exile from the Heavens, was clearly massing the army he’d threaten to raise. Sure, the motherfucker had flat out said as much during his last heart-to-heart with the Fallen, but Zer had hoped—for longer than he should have—that Cuthah had merely been grandstanding, doing a little posturing because the male had been on the losing end of the fight and looking to save face.

No such luck.

Maybe Zer should have just let the rogues do their thing. The Heavens might have evicted the Dominions’ asses, but they hadn’t put out a kill order. Not yet. Some of the Fallen still fought for redemption. The others gave in to the soul thirst and became rogues. Fuck if he knew why he fought, though, other than that he was, like it or not, still the leader of the Fallen three thousand year after their disastrous Fall from grace, and he’d never walked away from a fight.
Plus, Zer and his brothers might be debauched sensualists who enjoyed more than their fair share of earthy pleasures, but they did not kill innocents. Seduce, yes, murder, no.
The humans grinding on the crowded dance floor gave him a wide berth when he strode into the club. He was a killer.

He planted himself in the club’s private banquette. His seat in his world. He was king here and everyone—human and Fallen—knew it.

The gaping avenue in the dancing crowd closed up once he was safely stowed in the banquette, the music kicking up in volume to match the drug-induced euphoria of the crowd. Sin and sex. His humans stank of both vices. Like the addict he was, he opened his senses, drinking down the delicious cocktail. Unable to experience emotion themselves, the Fallen depended on the humans around them to provide it. There were a few ways to tap into that emotion, but the best was sex. And Zer was hungry for it.

Wanting more.

Always more.

Review: The King's Pleasure by Kitty Thomas

The King's Pleasure

In the kingdom of Himeros, Abigail is despised for her gypsy heritage. Pushed to the fringes of society, she’s forced to break the law in order to help feed her family. When a castle guard catches her stealing bread, he intends to cut off her hand for the offense.

Niall has just taken the throne and is determined to prove he isn’t a monster like his father. Awakened by the cries of a gypsy, he spares her from the guard’s blade and takes her as his slave instead. When he learns she doesn’t understand the kingdom’s carnal ways, he becomes determined to strip her of all inhibitions until her every desire is in service to the king’s pleasure.


This is a work of fiction, and the author does not endorse or condone any behavior done to another human being without their consent.

Warning: This book contains master/slave, group sexual activity, mild sadomasochism, oral and anal play, exhibitionism, and voyeurism.


This story exists in an alternate world that is not part of our history. You may notice a blend of some modern technology (electricity and running water), with an old world feel. This is by design.

I obtained the above information from Ms. Kitty's website here.

For those of you that know me... and those that don't this is my little statement about short books.... I do not judge short stories on the rush of their relationships, because they are just that - short stories. So, yes the relationships always could have been drawn out more, yea it seems like they fall in love to fast and of course the story could have been made longer... but it is a short story. So with that said.... here is my review...

I was given this book to review and give my honest thoughts, so here goes!

By coming to my place, you know that I am a reader of Ms. Kitty's work. She is a writer on the darker end of the spectrum. She is not your average BDSM writer, she puts her dark spin on things; but you know immediately if it is for you or not. For some people, her writing is not for them. It pushes them out of their comfort zone... It pushes the limit of what they are willing to accept as okay... Her writing pushes the envelope of what is acceptable by your own morals. But her writing is just that... writing. A world of escape, a world of her own creation... A world which, if dark is for you, you could lose yourself in. Now with this said... I will tell you what I thought of The King's Pleasure...

This is short story but it was a good read! I won't give much away... The story line was fresh for me, one I have not read about. It truly was a "fairy tale" of sorts. I enjoyed the twist and turns of what happened. It is not our traditional King saves the girl story... No, but I enjoyed watching the relationship grow between the King and the peasant. It amazed me to watch Abigail be brazen in front of the King... A man she knew could end her life on a whim. She enticed him, she enthralled him... she served him. Naill, the King, took Abigail in and tried to right a wrong of the past. Could he do it...?? Could he make things work that society deemed was an outrage?
Well.... I guess you will just have to find out what truly was The King's Pleasure!

Debate Time... Not a true spoiler but a thought of my own....
***There is one part of the story that people are in debate about. I have read a few things that others have had to say and what Ms. Kitty said before I even read the book. I won't tell you what it is about... but for those that have read the story... I will say that the three sentences in question... or should I say the action in question - IMO - did not even need to be in the story. I painted the picture of what the scene looked like and for that to be there, I didn't need it. Now at what was put in there... I feel there should have been a little disclaimer of some sort for those that are against those kind of actions. But with all of this said, it did not take away from the story that Ms. Kitty put in front of me.***

Giveaway & Guest Post ~ The Kure Jaye Frances

The Lair is happy to announce a new author that has come over to play....

Ms Jaye Frances!!!

Thank you, Cecile, for hosting me on All I Want and More today. I really appreciate the opportunity to talk about The Kure, and to let your readers know about my “Resolve To Read” promotion on Amazon through the month of January.

***You are quite welcome Ms. Jaye... Have fun!=)***

What do you do with two people who unexpectedly find themselves falling for each other, despite an onslaught of supernatural obstacles?

John Tyler, one of the main characters in The Kure, is stricken with a ravaging plague that is destroying his body. When he discovers the existence of a demonic book of healing called the Kure, he learns that it contains a forbidden ritual that might help him. The problem? It requires the complicity of a young virgin on the day of her eighteenth birthday. John’s search for such a woman leads him to Sarah Sheridan, and although he originally seeks her out to determine if she will help him unlock the spell’s power, after meeting her, he knows he could never ask her to make such a sacrifice.

When an angered Sarah confronts John about his true intentions, he tries to explain that he had long ago changed his mind about asking her to participate in the wicked rite. And as an unexpected romance begins to blossom, they find themselves contriving a plan to use the ancient ceremony in a different way, hoping it will rid John of the devastating disease.

In the following excerpt, John is distraught when their attempt to invoke the power of the Kure has failed. John and Sarah share a tender but bittersweet moment in which Sarah reveals her feelings for him, and John is filled with regret and disappointment when he realizes he will never be able to enjoy the physical pleasures Sarah could bring him.

Here’s an excerpt:

Sarah reached out from under the blanket, her fingers tenderly finding their way between his. Fearing the agony he would have to endure, she tried to hide her anxiety, but she couldn’t mask the betraying quiver in her voice. “I’ll ride out to your house early. We’ll take your wagon and go into town from there.”

John didn’t argue. If she wanted to be with him, regardless of the outcome, he would not let his pride keep her away. He nodded slowly, and then much as a devout worshipper gazes upward seeking divine strength, he lifted his eyes to hers.

But Sarah’s attention was elsewhere, stolen by a growing arc of white light slowly forming over her bare feet. Following the gleaming ray to its source, she was staring up at the large ocular window, where a bright silver-blue moon was edging its way across the lens. “There’s our moon,” she said with a long sigh. “I was so sure we could make it work.”

John took another drink. As he lowered the bottle, he let his eyes wander to Sarah’s long, shapely legs. Stretching beyond the edge of the blanket, they were tan and sculpted with muscle. Even in the pale amber lamplight, he could see tiny, nearly transparent blonde hairs glistening against the brown sugar sheen of her thighs. It was a desire he could only grieve for. Disappointment filled his heart as he realized he might never feel them, light and soft against the side of his cheek.

The disease has already taken my manhood. Even now it keeps me from knowing the pleasure she could bring me.

He raised the whiskey to his mouth, no longer noticing the raw aftertaste. Setting the bottle down, he twisted it into the straw, careful not to release it until it touched solid ground. For a moment, John wondered if Sheridan would miss it. But an empty bottle of bourbon could be replaced. His daughter’s virtue could not.

What if the old man suddenly burst through the door? What would he think? What would he do if he found us like this, both of us naked, with only a thin cover between us?

It was a fleeting thought, and John washed it from his mind as he tilted back the bottle.
He felt Sarah tapping him on the arm. “Move over a little,” she said. “You’re sitting on the edge of my blanket.”

John leaned to the side, freeing the fabric. As he righted himself, he swayed awkwardly, surprised that the liquor was already distorting his balance and slowing his actions.

Raking a few handfuls of hay into a makeshift pillow, Sarah scooted down and turned on her side, shifting and squirming until she was comfortable, unconcerned that her movements revealed a portion of her bottom.

Aching to follow her, John began inching himself lower, reluctantly testing the alcohol-induced daze that was keeping the pain manageable. He wanted to pull her close, strip away the layer of wool between them and satisfy his hunger for the warmth of her skin. Instead, he carefully curved his body away, keeping several inches of space between his infected flesh and her half-exposed backside. It was as close as he dared come.

Bringing the bottle to his lips, he quickly emptied it and closed his eyes, letting his head sink into the straw.

Here’s a brief synopsis:

John Tyler, a young man in his early twenties, discovers he has contracted a ghastly affliction affecting a most sensitive part of his body. When the village doctor offers the conventional, and potentially disfiguring, treatment as the only cure, John tenaciously convinces the doctor to reveal an alternative remedy—a forbidden ritual contained within an ancient manuscript called the Kure.

Although initially rejecting the vile and unholy rite, John realizes, too late, that the ritual is more than a faded promise scrawled on a page of crumbling paper. And as cure quickly becomes curse, the unholy text unleashes a dark power that drives him to consider the unthinkable—a depraved and wicked act requiring the corruption of an innocent soul.

Ultimately, John must choose between his desperate need to arrest the plague that is destroying his body, and the virtue of the woman he loves, knowing the wrong decision could cost him his life.

For a limited time, read “The Kure” for only $.99 (kindle version)

I always spend the last few days of December reviewing my writing plan for the coming year—to determine what’s going to receive priority and how I will budget my time to make sure I get it done. During one of those planning sessions, I noticed my husband was also putting a few goals together for the new year. When I asked him to tell me about his “resolutions,” he said that one of them was to read more, especially books that fall outside his favorite genres, “just to see what else is out there.” We began to talk about how many more people are now reading books of all kinds, primarily due to increased availability and choice of low-cost eBooks for the kindle and nook. I’m constantly reading comments from readers who decided to try a particular author’s work because it was ninety-nine cents, or in some cases, free. Then my husband asked an interesting question: “Why don’t you offer some kind of promotion to encourage more people to read The Kure, with the idea that they’ll be more inclined to read the book if you temporarily lower the price?” I really had to think about this one, but after realizing it might motivate a few more folks who are not familiar with The Kure to take a look, I decided to do it. I’m calling it “Resolve To Read”, and it’s going on right now. Effective for the month of January, the kindle version of The Kure can be purchased for ninety-nine cents on Amazon. So if you were planning on buying a kindle version anyway, why not take advantage of the “Resolve To Read” promotion and save two bucks?

I’d like to conclude by sharing a few details about myself. I was born in the Midwest and grew up surrounded by traditional values and conservative attitudes (which I quickly discarded). I’ll readily admit that my life’s destination has been the result of an open mind and a curiosity about all things irreverent, and I invite visitors to my website with a friendly caveat: “Be forewarned, my life has not followed the traditional path of homemaker, wife, and mother.” When I’m not consumed by my writing, I enjoy cooking, traveling to all places tropical and “beachy” and taking pictures—lots of pictures—many of which wind up on my website. I live on the central gulf coast of Florida, sharing my home with one husband, six computers, four cameras, and several hundred pairs of shoes.Link
