★ The Beast Is Back! ☆

 

It’s Back!!!

The Beast by Jalen Wilkes was recently banned from Amazon. From what I am seeing it was for reasons along the lines of the book “glorifying rape or sexual abuse”.

This book has been in my TBR pile for a few days, but after seeing that the author has been personally targeted and her book reported and banned, I thought I would post this to get the news out that The Beast is Back, it’s the least we here at SROKK could do. 
So, first, head to one of the links (below) and BUY NOW! Then Share the news and links around, let’s get The Beast back on everyone rader. 
 
Something from the author about her book being banned. 
 

So yes, this is considered a “dark erotic romance,” and yes, there are some horrible things discussed in the course of the story.I think most people got it though, that it’s not glorifying abuse or rape, it’s glorifying surviving these events.

It’s about letting people know that even if you have been abused, or raped, or gone through sexual trauma…you are still allowed to enjoy dirty sex.

You were raped and still love being held down and fucked hard? There’s nothing wrong with that. It doesn’t mean you are broken or messed in the head or deserved to be raped the first time.

You were molested and enjoy Daddy role playing? Don’t let anyone tell you that you are sick, or a freak, or that the events in your past are controlling you.

If you have been damaged somehow, survived it, and continue to thrive…this is your story. Your sexuality is about you, not about what happened to you…it is all you. Enjoy your kink, enjoy your smut, and never let anyone tell you that you need to be healed if you like it a little more crooked then the norm.

Define your own normal, and write yourself that happily ever after.

 
 
WARNING ☆   
This is a classified as a dark erotic novel. It deals with some pretty heavy themes. It may trigger those who have experience sexual abuse, rape, violence, basically a shitty childhood or life in general. I must be kind of messed in the head, because I thought it was a touching story full of amazing imagery and people with hearts that continue to beat and seek the beauty in the world in spite of life grinding them into nothingness. Apparently some early reviewers have found mainly the darker elements, so consider this your warning, for what it’s worth. This is not a fairy tale, this is what happens when the music ends and life goes on after the credits roll. This is about simply existing until you find yourself and write your own happily ever after, no matter what form it takes.
 
SYNOPSIS

Dimitri Sokolov is a man scarred, physically and emotionally. From the rough streets of Moscow to the highest ranks in the Solntsevskaya Bratva, he has seen it all. An attack four years ago left him disfigured and in seclusion, hiding from reactions to his appearance and in safety from those who failed to kill him the first time.

Comfortable in his penthouse, managing his billion dollar businesses, he’s resigned himself to be alone, simply called The Beast among those who’ve dealt with him in the past.

Columbia Grey is a pseudo-activist trying to save her neighbourhood from a developer intent on levelling it to build apartment towers. She goes along with a plan to confront the CEO of the company on his own turf, to force him to listen to her demands…all in a pathetic attempt to impress a man she barely likes.

Little does she know, she’s taken herself into the mouth of the beast, a man familiar with death and destruction, sex and seduction, a man used to getting exactly what he wants and a man with nothing left to lose.

She’s a beauty, but will that be enough to tame the beast and save her life?

 
This is not a fairy tale, this is what happens when the music ends and life goes on after the credits roll. This is about simply existing until you find yourself and write your own happily ever after, no matter what form it takes.

TEASER:
I wanted her here with me.  Please, come back to me, Sabrina.
Bre and I were connected.  Our souls were one.  We were both fucked up and broken, but together we made each other whole again.
I couldn’t stay away, I sat on the side of the bed, took her hand mine, and started stroking my thumb over her knuckles again.  I wish I could hold her in my arms, pull her into me, and place a deep kiss on her tender lips.  I wanted to feel her heart beat on my chest as I held her close to me, snuggled safe in our bed.
The door swung open, bringing me out of my thoughts.  Jon walked in carrying food and a change of clothes.  He set a stack of paperwork down on the windowsill and turned toward me. 
“Caston, you need to go home, get some rest.  You can’t live by
her side.  The doctors aren’t sure when, or if, she will wake up.”
My head snapped up, and I stared him down.  “Are you fucking
kidding me right now?  Can you honestly tell me that if this was Sara you’d leave her alone like this?  Do you know she moved today?”
His eyes widened, and he moved closer to her bed.  “I know, buddy,
but maybe you just thought she did.  I mean they said that muscles twitch and shit when people are in comas.”

★ Review ☆ Burnout by Sarah Castille #RidingDesire

 Burnout.79pg ebook

 

I love this story!

 

Again, really short, but No cliffhanger, YAY!

 

This is my first Sarah Castille experienced and it was certainly not a letdown. 
 
Sophie is a cop, she has transferred to Vancouver after the system failed to help her when her cheating ex-husband tried to kill her. 

Wanting a fresh start, she goes to a party held by her not-so-honest brother, where she meets the gorgeous Ace, Sergeant of arms for Rogue Riders’ MC.

 

After their Intense and quite hot encounter, Sophie plays it cool, until something goes wrong and her brother, Jason appoints Ace to make sure his sister gets home safely.

 

Sophie decided to grab life by the balls, so to speak, and invites Ace in, for her first one night stand.

 

Ace, the rough and ready biker, well known for his inability for more than a one night, has had a hard life. Bounced from foster home to foster home, Ace has never had anything stable in his life, nothing besides his bother’s in the MC.

 

When Sophie walks into the party he is drawn to her instantly, his hit jackpot, a gorgeous curvy girl with a smart mouth and who challenges him at every turn, that makes him want her even more, maybe for more than one night.

 

When Sophie’s brother goes missing and the police fail her yet again, Sophie turns to Ace and the MC to help find Jason.

Sophie’s set on one day at a time as things heat up between these two, while Ace makes it crystal clear, this is the one woman he wants to settle with. 

Action, excitement, hot dominant biker, gorgeous strong willed woman and some damn hot, and sometimes illegal sex, what more can we ask for?
 
The cop and the biker, how will this work? Grab it and find out, you won’t be disappointed.

Bound by Lies (Bound #1) by Hanna Peach

 

Blurb

Our love is on his terms. He contacts me only through notes − unpredictable and untraceable. When we meet, he can touch me, but I’m not allowed to touch him.When we make love, it’s only after I have been bound and blindfolded. It’s the only time I truly feel alive. Which is why I play along with it. For now.

Caden Thaine is the most sinfully beautiful man I have ever seen. But more than that, his touch sets me on fire. And dear God, do I ache for him. I don’t know where he lives or even what he does. But this doesn’t scare me. My only fear is that one day his messages will stop. I know he’s hiding something. But that’s okay.
I am hiding things, too. Like my real name and… who I really am. But the deeper I fall for him, the stronger my curiosity grows.
I could never have imagined just how much our lives are bound. And that pulling
at his tangled web of secrets would cause my own dark past to come back to try
and reclaim me. Will we survive? Will our love?

In 2012, she sold everything, moved to Europe and began to write full-time.

It’s no secret that I love this woman and everything she has written, but it seems the more books she brings out, the better they are.

Her 18th birthday in Paris with her boyfriend, and her present? Giving up her “Lady V” virgin card. Or so she thinks until she finds her pigtard boyfriend in bed with her mother! 
 
One freak fire accident lands Lex, Taddy, and Vive behind bars for Arson and attempted murder, their friendship is tested while fighting for their freedom, and so is Lex’s hormones. 
 
Officer Ford “God” Gotti. Dayum!

The 21yr old new officer has taken a liking to Lex after pulling her and her friends over when an APB was issued on both Lex’s scooter and Vive’s limo for leaving the scene of a crime. 
Ford bends over backward’s to try helping Lex at every turn, while Lex is trying to bend over anyway for Ford. The chemistry these two display even in the grimmest of circumstances is electrifying and no surprise at all that these tho get it on. 
The sex? 
A little quick, but still hot, I mean come on, “Channing – Johnson” fucking you on a Daytona 955i? Incredible!

★ Review ☆ Heart Racer by Marian Tee #RidingDesire

Heart Racer. 73pg ebook

I hate doing these kinds of reviews, but, I am at a loss with this story. 

It’s a short story, but took me a little over 2 days to actually finish it, which let’s face it, that’s really bad for me.

Now, I love me some cockiness in a man, but this guy thinks he is gods gift, and in all honesty, I can not stand that. He thinks he is doing the world a favor by just being there and gracing us with his presence. Sorry Leandro, but no. I think this story could have been really great if the author had of dialed back this rude kópanos (jerk), but this is just my opinion.

Leandro, an overly cocky, stunningly gorgeous but an extremely arrogant Greek billionaire who left Athens and has sent himself to America to “change” his ways in order to help his father’s career and get back in his good graces. He decides the best way is to chance his appearance in the public eye by getting himself a fake girlfriend, one that will make him look less like the illegal street racing party animal he is.

He never expects to meet someone like Roberta – aka Bobby.

Bobby is a quiet loner, by choice. She hides under her baggy average clothing in hopes to blend in. After a girl in school plays an awful prank on her, she has sworn herself off men, she doesn’t trust any of them, and that does not change when she meets Leandro.

Bobby gets under his skin instantly, and not entirely in a good way, so to silence her rampage on him, he kisses her,  but she still doesn’t trust him, and she certainly doesn’t want anything to do with him.

Leandro won’t give up that easy, and finds out the easiest way to bed the tough virginal Bobby, is to tell her he loves her, a lie that easily rolls off his tongue, and just as easily is believed by Bobby.

It isn’t long before Leandro realizes his love for her, but when all his lies surface and things come to a head, will her love for him be enough to forgive him, or will she leave him with a shattered heart?
