True Control (True, #4.2)True Control by Willow Madison
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

True Control is 5 controlled stars!

I am not sure how the author has done it, but she pulled this book off in a big way. This book shows the sheer breadth of this authors talent. I stand in awe of such tremendous talent.

This is one of those books I really don't want to spoil for anyone because what happens within those pages is a journey each person should travel themselves with no interference. Yep, it's that good.

In the effort not to spoil, I will tell you I read midway and had to put my Kindle down because I was sobbing like a baby. My husband still gives me odd looks, haha. My heart broke reading this book. It shattered but then it mended again. I knew joy and peace once again by the end of this book.

If you haven't read the books, start with book 1 of this series, True Nature. True Nature (True, #1) by Willow Madison You truly will not regret reading this series. Willow Madison is an author with heart and soul and she pours those qualities into her writing, making this book a breathing, living thing that grabs you by the throat.

This story has an HEA though it is not the HEA you might expect. I do promise you won't leave this book heartbroken, the author takes care of your emotions and leaves you smiling at the end.

In the end... I love my Max still, always will, but now I have to add that I also love Jake. I'm such a book slut. haha.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Review to be more elaborate when I've had time to wrap my head around how this book made me feel.

Willow Madison and True Choices! 5 Bleeping Stars!

True Choices (True, #3)True Choices by Willow Madison
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Another winner from Willow Madison. 5 bleeping stars!

In this book, the third in the series, we see Lucy punished more and become even more immersed in the life that Max offers her. I feel bad for Lucy at times but ultimately, she is where she wants to be. It’s as simple as that. And I want her to stay with Max, too, cuz I love me some Max!

This isn’t a sweet book but it had its moments. I could feel that Max adored Lucy, I really could even though he was a right bastid. What is it about Max that I both love and hate? I feel horrible for him because I think he has a darkness inside him that consumes him at times. He is so controlling, I can’t help but think maybe with therapy, he could still be the dominant Alpha but a much more at peace dominant Alpha.

But this book isn’t about the way Max would be with therapy. It’s about Max as he is and it offers an intimate look into the mind of a man who carries darkness within like a shroud. I can’t help but think he’s going to go off the rails one day and truly hurt Lucy even though he doesn’t want to hurt her. His control is only as good as his ability to leash his darkness.

This isn’t a book that you’ll close and skip away never to think about it again or if you do, its with a fondness that has you smiling. No, this book will rip your guts out and put them in a pretty box. This is a book that will have you squirming but for all the ‘right’ reasons, haha. This is a book that will haunt your memory for years to come because it’s just that good.

I would say this book is a romance but it’s a very dark romance between two people, both of whom are in love with the other, but that love may not be healthy. For pure reading pleasure, I adore this series. I adore Max. I want to hug him and get him into therapy, but I still love him.

And that is the mark of a great author, in my opinion.

Breaking Elena Part Two Is Here! Breaking Elena: Twisted

I finished up writing Breaking Elena: Twisted. I thought I'd never put a period to the end. Much as I am enjoying writing this series, for some reason, the editing on this one was a bear. But it's finally done and I'll be moving on to Part Three, which I've tentatively named Breaking Elena: Forever. Now for the cover reveal, which is already revealed on Amazon... haha!

In Part One, Elena played her cards and now, in Part Two, she must deal with what she has been dealt. Follow her into the heart of her new reality and discover, along with her, what is to become of her. She must learn to trust Ben, her protector, else she will surely perish. Or will she... When nothing is as it seems, Elena struggles to adjust.

Ben Dimitriou is a twisted psychopath who now has Elena right where he wants her. He schemed and manipulated to get her into his lair and now that she is there, she is his toy to do with as he pleases. There is no stopping him now...

WARNINGS: This is Part Two of a novella. Coming soon is part three, Breaking Elena: Untitled as Yet. This story contains strong language in the form of dirty talk and cursing. This story is meant for adults only. This story also contains elements of age play, non consensual spankings and medical examinations, manipulation of the heroine by the hero, oral sex, and more. This is not a typical feel good romance story. It is an erotic love story but that love story is horrifyingly twisted. Read at your own risk...

True Beginnings by Willow Madison 5 Stars!

True Beginnings (True, #2)True Beginnings by Willow Madison
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I can’t be the only to ever want amnesia just so I can read my favorite books all over again. This is the way I feel about this series by Willow Madison. I read the first book in the series, True Nature, and couldn’t wait to begin True Beginnings.

Max is a man who puts other Alpha males to shame. He controls every aspect of our heroine Lucy, and does it unapologetically. At times, I felt Lucy’s fear as my heart raced in terror. I felt her difficulty in accepting the things Max asked of her. Over it all, I also felt her love for Max and her desire to please him. Evil, evil man is just so sexy, she couldn’t help wanting him.

Lucy seems to be an extreme submissive. Everything Max does turns her on and even when she is frightened, she is also desperate to please him. I read on as Max slowly inducted Lucy into his way of life. He has rules for her and Lord help her if she disobeys or doesn’t do as he expects.

Max is a right a**hole, there is no doubt. He’s manipulative, chauvinistic, and sexy. Yeah, he’s a bad boy. And I absolutely would run the other way if I ever met him in real life. But as a fantasy, he’s just right. He hits all the right buttons.

Another character I’m really starting to fall for is Jake, Max’s brother. Jake… what can I say, he’s dreamy and sigh worthy. He’s the gentler sexy and I felt so bad for him in this book when he had his break with Julia.

The book was fascinating and well written, keeping my interest and my heart either racing or breaking. I loved the characters and I loved the story. I can’t wait for more. Off to book 3, True Choices.

True Nature by Willow Madison 5 Stars!

True Nature (True, #1)True Nature by Willow Madison
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

True Nature is one of the best books I’ve read all year. Books like this one is one of the reasons I am thankful for Indie authors. The imagination and heart in this book is something I haven’t seen in 99 percent of what is put out by the publishing houses. This book is not PC and I love it. It is unapologetic and absolutely a five star read I could not stop reading.

I fell in love with Max right along with Lucy. He charmed me even as he made a shiver go up and down my spine. I felt almost afraid for Lucy as the story went on and I have to say, the end shocked the living mess right out of me. I loved it.

I finished the book and then thought about it. I thought about it for a long time and I have to admit that if the book had shied away from what it was leading up to be, it would have made the book weaker. Nothing is written here just for shock value, it is all very raw but necessary to tell us the story of Max and Lucy.

It is absolutely a love story. If you enjoy books that give you unvarnished truth, you will enjoy this book. If you enjoy books that do not shy from the hard subjects, give this one a go, I guarantee it will entertain you.

I went through a gamut of emotions with this book and I finished knowing that Max is an Alpha male in the truest sense of the word but he is also a hard man to understand. I might not agree with his actions but the heroine of this story, Lucy, she fell for him as he was and for her, he was perfect.

Remember, this is a love story. It might not be your love story or my love story, but it is beautiful. It is the story of Max and Lucy. If you keep an open mind and take deep breaths, you might even find yourself rooting for Max... I know I did.

Yay! It's blog hop day!
And I'm giving away Books!

I'm excited for visitors to my blog and I'll contribute to the party by giving prizes! If you would, please like my Facebook page, I would be grateful. Also, if you'd like to sign up for my Newsletter, you will receive one free book of your choosing from my backlist. All you have to do is leave me a comment here with the e-mail address you'd like the book to be sent to, your choice of which ebook you'd like and what format you would prefer. I can do Kindle and ePub files.

I have posted for your reading pleasure an excerpt of one of my paranormal romance stories, Bunny and the Grizzly Bear. Enjoy and thanks for visiting my blog! The synopsis for this book... 
  Carson is a Grizzly Bear shifter.
              He gets dosed with a powerful aphrodisiac drug and
dropped off naked in Bunny's neighborhood...
              Bunny the rabbit shifter just wants to help him in his time of need...
              Carson is also an undercover agent with United Shifter's Alliance...
              She's just an innocent bystander bunny...
              Neither counted on falling in love...
And without further ado... The Excerpt
“What about you. Are you in danger?”
I level an expectant look on him, silently demanding an answer.
“Only from being talked to death.”
“Oh don’t be such a grumpy bear!” I click my tongue at him. Gave him a good frown. Scolded, “You represent bear shifters and the United Shifters Alliance. Do you really want to give the impression that all bears who are also agents of the Alliance are grumps?”
His shoulders flinch and he squints at me sidelong. Wariness wafts from him to my nose, pungent. Did I mention bunnies have superior sniffers?
“Let’s get you dry.” I pull a towel from the linen closet. Give my grumpy bear a forgiving smile. Hop behind him. Praise while I pat him dry, “Such wide shoulders! And your skin just glows! May I ask what soap you use? Most commercial soaps dry my skin so badly, I have to use a special made bar that’s so expensive! But I can add any scent I want, which is very nice. My current bar is lavender. Do you think it smells good?”
I round his side as I finish speaking and thrust one hand up to his nose. He blinks down at it, then stares me in the eye. “You’re an odd duck.”
I gasp as outrage blows a frigid wind through me. I puff my chest and open my mouth. Out comes a bellow, “I’m a bunny, not a duck!”
“It’s a figure of speech,” he bellows back and wowsa, but he packs a wallop. I touch my hair to be sure it isn’t blowing in the wind of his impressive breath control! I really need to work on my bellow if his can blow mine out of the water in such a dramatic fashion. And oh, boy howdy, did my vajayjay sit up and take notice. Such dominance!
“Oh.” Lips pursed, I gaze studiously to the side. Mustn't reveal my hand too soon in the game. “Well then.”
“My apologies,” he says stiffly. “You startled me.”
“Oh no, don’t apologize!” I wave a hand. Heap the guilt. “Entirely my fault. I shouldn’t have jumped to conclusions.”

That's it... Thanks for visiting!

We Were One Once: Book 2 by Willow Madison 5 Fantastic Stars

we were one once: book 2we were one once: book 2 by Willow Madison
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What is the mark of a good book for me? Answer: I don’t want to put it down even long enough to eat a chocolate bar and I love me some chocolate now. What is the mark of a great book? Answer: It has the mark of a good book AND it has me thinking about it well after I have turned the last page and read the last word. The characters stay with me. The story stays with me. I carry it to bed with me and snuggle it. Then I dream about it… lol.

Willow Madison has done it again. She wrote a book that made me cry. It made me laugh. It made me thump my kindle (on a pillow, calm down, I didn’t break it, haha). It made me scream and my hubby had to give me the *look* that says, “You are a nut but I love you still.”.

Let us talk about Simon. About Miles. And Grace, my beautiful, beautiful Grace. She went through so much, she broke my heart. Simon broke my heart when he felt broken but then he rallied as I knew he would. I freaking cheered, did a little dance, too, when he got his head on straight. Miles… well, I wanted to break something of his, all right. But luckily, so did my Simon. And since my Simon is so darn good at breaking things, I’m content to let him do the job with no interference from moi.

I hope I’m not leaving spoilers here, I don’t want to spoil this treat for anyone. I enjoyed this book so darned much, I couldn’t imagine not shouting it to everyone. I truly adore Simon. He stole the show for me with how much he was willing to do for his Grace. His Red. Oh yeah, Red. She freaking ROCKS!!! I love Red, I’d have her over for dinner and a drink anytime! If she brings Simon, bonus!

Seriously though, there is one line that is located in the back of the book that takes me by the throat, the heart, even my brain and just jerks everything to a halt as I realize this is the line of dialogue that boils it all down for me into one sentence. One perfect sentence. It describes a love so beautiful I had to find a tissue just to be able to see. He had to use artificial means to get his job done but he did it for her, for his broken woman. Of course, the line was uttered by my Simon.

(There is a spoiler quote here. To view it, go to Goodreads)

Note to Simon: With that sentence, Simon, you put this reader into a frenzy. If you were real, I’d stalk your ass.

Note to Author, Willow Madison: I’d adore a short story or novella detailing you know who’s time in the cave… Just sayin!

We Were One Once by Willow Madison 5 Fabulous Stars!

we were one once: Book 1we were one once: Book 1 by Willow Madison
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Written review to come when I've wrapped my head around the awesomeness that is this book. Okay, I've had time to wrap my mind and write my review, so here it is in all its glory...

This story grabbed me by the throat and would not let go until I finished it. If you enjoy dark reads, you’ll enjoy this book. If you enjoy stories that push the boundaries, this is the story for you. If you enjoy stories that take you on a ride and mind f*** you, this is the story for you. I enjoyed it. I recommend it.

I don’t want to provide any plot spoilers in this review because really, that would be bad for those who haven’t read it yet. To spoil the surprise, the utter goodness of what this story provides. I will say it was well written. I was drawn into the story immediately. I will talk about the characters and how I felt about them.

Simon… what can I say about Simon? He is my new book boyfriend, joining the ranks with Takeshi and a few other book boyfriends (yeah I’m a bit of a book slut). Simon is an awesome character who comes alive on the pages. His needs, his wants, had me from word one. His ‘product’ made me gasp.

Simon is dark. He is unapologetically, absolutely, hedonistically, beautifully dark. I loved him all the more for it. He was Alpha in a way that makes other Alpha men look weak. He enjoys what he enjoys and doesn’t apologize for it.

Though I love Simon, I didn’t like Simon until Grace. Grace is a fascinating character and I couldn’t help but fall for her just as Simon fell. He loved the many facets of Grace and I must say, there are many. Simon is a better person with Grace. Grace, as broken as she is, displays a strength that shines through on the page. There would be very few women who would have the strength to love Simon. Grace, beautifully damaged Grace, is one of those who bring light to Simon’s dark world.

This story worked for me. The characters worked for me. I reveled in it and them. I am going to enjoy book 2 now…

Review of Polar Bears Are Forever

Polar Bears are Forever: Book One Supernatural Enforcers AgencyPolar Bears are Forever: Book One Supernatural Enforcers Agency by E.A. Price
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love this book. I have a new favorite author. This book contains every element I enjoy: Paranormal, Psychics, Werebears, Romance, Mystery...

I just discovered E.A. Price and feel like I struck gold! I have bought all of her other books as well, after reading this. Sure there are typos, but the story is excellent and it drew me in and I couldn't put it down. I can't wait for more from this series, I really want to know who the 'boss' is. I have a feeling based on where it was leading but that could be a red herring... :) Loved it!

New Erotic Romance Release! Breaking Elena: Obsession

Click above cover or click HERE to buy at

When Elena Trainor found out she needed five thousand dollars quickly, she had no plan in mind. Then serendipity dropped into her lap. Things began to happen, plans fell into place. She didn’t know, couldn’t know, that behind the scenes, there was a puppet master. And she was the puppet… 

This is the story of twenty year old Elena. 

Elena makes a difficult choice and decides she has to break the law to get to where she needs to be. When she’s caught, she has to decide if she is going to play the only card she has… giving up her v-card to a man old enough to be her father… 

WARNINGS: This is Part One of a novella. Coming soon is part two, Breaking Elena: Twisted. This story contains strong language in the form of dirty talk and cursing. This story is meant for adults only. This story also contains elements of age play, virgin first time sex. This is not a typical feel good romance story. It is an erotic love story but that love story is horrifyingly twisted. Read at your own risk...

About Me

So. This is my first blog post. Here, anyway. I think I may have tried to blog before, but I don't remember. I'll blame that on age.

Anyway. About me. I write erotica. Romantic erotica, really. I enjoy a good romance. I don't like filler or long drawn out description scenes, so you probably won't see that in my stories. I describe just enough, I hope, to draw a sketch.

Yeah, I'm a bit scattered, and my thoughts tend to wander, even writing a blog post. The point of this post was to inform that I write many different types of erotica. I've written stories about Sasquatch loving to Werebear loving. I write relatively tame to age play erotica. Generally, I write whatever ticks my interest at the moment.

That's about it. At least for now. I'll probably do weekly posts. Maybe more.

ETA: I should, I guess, add a link to my newest erotic romance release. So here it is. Enjoy!

Gwen Daly needed a keeper. 
Simon Walker was just the man to take her in hand. 

When Gwen had to run from the city after seeing her boss murdered by werewolves, Simon Walker was the one she ran to even though they were strangers. 

Gwen was bitten by one of the werewolves and now she is changing. Simon is an Alpha werewolf in charge of the Old Towne pack. When Gwen runs to him, he welcomes her into his pack. 

Gwen is a virgin looking for that special guy. Simon is ready to settle down but he has very particular tastes when it comes to the woman he’ll make his—he wants a woman who will be his very own baby girl. 

This erotic romance novella is intended for mature audiences only. Content includes age play, domestic discipline, bdsm, virgin first time sex, and an alpha male who intends to get his way. If such content is offensive to you, please do not buy or borrow this book.
