Molly Reviews: Reaching the Edge by L.M. Somerton (Tales from The Edge Book 1)

Blurb:
When you reach the edge, you can’t avoid taking a leap of faith.

Joe Dexter leads a complicated life. In one world he is a consultant criminal psychologist—in another he runs The Edge, a successful corporate training company. He’s also an active Dom in the London BDSM scene.

A social call to The Underground, a club owned by an old friend, turns into much more when Joe is introduced to a prospective sub. Falling hard for the boy’s tumbling blonde curls, huge blue eyes and desperate need for protection, Joe carefully coaxes him out of his shell. By the end of an intense weekend, unbreakable bonds have been forged and Joe is well on the way to becoming Olly’s Master.

Joe knows that there is trauma in Olly’s past, but it is not until his professional and private lives collide that Joe discovers the truth. He knows he shouldn’t have let Olly out of his sight but it’s too late—Olly’s old Master is back on the scene and he’s not in the mood to forgive and forget.

With Olly’s life on the line, Joe risks everything to save him. Has Joe found his perfect submissive only to lose him in a horrible twist of fate, or will love win the day? They’ve reached the edge and there’s no avoiding a leap of faith.

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of D/s, including chastity play, and references to past rape and current PTSD. There are also non-consensual plot elements with an aggressive former Master which include kidnapping, bondage and the forcible insertion of a butt plug.

Book Blast: Second Chances Complete Series by Rain Carrington

Blurb:
Losing love, real love, can break a man. The pain it causes cannot be taken away, but when that love walks back in, the possibilities of a second chance are too tempting to pass up. Brian Lauder lost a love, the love of his life, when Morgan Cherik walked out two years before. He wallowed in self-pity and alcohol until he tried to get past it, moving on to a new man, who came into his life as a rent boy but became much more.

Morgan’s rain drenched skin couldn’t contain the strawberry scent of him, or camouflage his tears of regret. As Nicolas Perez, Pez, steps aside, Brian takes Morgan back, wondering if he can regain all they’d lost.

It wouldn’t be easy for Morgan to earn his place back at his beloved Master’s feet. Brian was angry and hurt, and the sadist in him put Morgan through paces he’d never imagined. Still, there was a great love there between them, if only Brian could forget Pez.

A chance encounter at a club lets him see what Pez has been up to since walking away from Brian, and he comes back to the house, to the couple he’d allowed to get back together with his leaving. Right away, he and Morgan fight. The hatred and jealousy enrages them, but Brian realizes he wants them both and enlists help to make it happen.

Tensions do not abate easily. The two men are both passionately in love with Brian, but when their own desires for one another ignite, they begin to think that the threesome could work and they could be happy.

Morgan goes back to work, modeling kinky gear for Slutae and Pez’s dream also comes true when he is hired as the company’s marketing executive. With a huge launch at Chaps coming, where Pez has a contract with Travis Walton, the club’s owner, for his staff to wear the company’s products exclusively, Morgan is set to be the star of the show. Who thought anything could go wrong?

Tragedy strikes and strikes again. Brian starts to question his own sanity even as he attempts to help the clients at the women’s prison he works for as a psychologist. His boys feel helpless and alone, but a friend from Brian’s past comes to get him back to the old Brian, dominant and confident.

Twists and turns, this threesome is never sure they can work out. Watch as these men attempt to overcome jealousies, turmoil, pain and loss. Friends step in when needed, and their lifestyle of BDSM gets them through times when nothing else can.

“Each couple in the relationship must have a strong love. It’s a triangle. Brain and Morgan, Morgan and Pez and Pez and Brian being the corners; if they all aren’t strong, then the triangle itself isn’t strong. It’ll buckle.”

Molly Reviews and Giveaway: Dare to Hope by TM Smith (All Cocks Book 4)

Blurb:
Tristan is the second oldest of the Brennan brothers and the odd man out. Most of the Brennan men have careers in law enforcement, but as a psychiatrist, Tristan chooses to help people in a different way. Quiet and restrained, he is content to hover in the background of his more gregarious brothers. Then he meets two men, each broken and damaged from losses beyond their control.

Gabriel Simenson is mourning his lover’s death. The random act of violence that took Gio’s life has left everyone at All Cocks reeling. The only thing keeping Gabe from drowning in misery is the friendship he’s forged with Micah, the newest model at All Cocks. He continues to struggle, and at the urging of his All Cocks family Gabe agrees to counseling with Tristan under one condition: Micah must go with him.

Micah Solo can relate to unbearable loss, having lost his leg and so much more in Iraq. The past two years he has been alone, adrift and vulnerable — the memories of war haunting his dreams, spilling over into his daily life. At All Cocks, Micah has found the acceptance he craves and the family he lost, but still he yearns for happiness and peace within.

The friendship between the three is instant, the mutual attraction evident. They circle each other, wanting more, yet unsure if it is truly possible. Is life the mundane reality they’ve each come to accept for themselves or do they dare to hope?

The All Cocks Stories is a series set within the world of online gay porn.

*Warning* Micah’s PTSD is told in detail, including flashbacks to his time in Iraq.

Molly Reviews and Interview: Psychology of Submission by Livia Grant (Corbin’s Bend Season 3 Book 4)

Blurb:
Traci Jackson has been a therapist in Corbin’s Bend for several years. She’s helped many residents navigate their own D/s and DD relationships, but she hasn’t found her own HoH. Through her patients, she’s been researching and writing about the dynamics of dominance and submission in relationships for years. She loves her field, but she hates attending professional conventions where she’s treated like her specialty isn’t valid.

Sean Campbell is juggling raising his teenage daughter alone in Chicago while running a large convention hotel. When the annual psychologist convention comes to town, he literally bumps into the most beautiful and intelligent woman he’s met in a long time. He gets the surprise of his life when he finds out her specialty is D/s with an emphasis on corporal punishment.

They may find sparks from the minute they meet, but Traci and Sean have more than just the long distance between Chicago and Corbin’s Bend separating them. Sean has never heard of domestic discipline before. Will Traci pack up and leave Corbin’s Bend to be with the man she’s falling in love with, even if he can never be her true HoH?

Review and Giveaway: Second Chances by Rain Carrington (Denver Diaries Book 1)

Blurb:
Having everything he needed and wanted in his life for the first time, Brian Lauder was perfectly happy. He had a career that he loved, a home, friends and a submissive that he adored. One he thought he’d held at a big enough distance from to protect his heart. That was all before Morgan stepped back into his house and his life.

Morgan Cherik was everything a man could want. Beautiful, driven and eager to kneel for his Master, but he’d left without a word two years before to follow his dream, leaving Brian to pick up the pieces of a shattered heart.

Now he was back and Brian was torn between wanting to feel that love he’d never been able to shake for Morgan, or punish him and let him go. Then there was Pez, the young college student who had helped him heal. How could Brian let him go?

As Morgan begins to make amends, Brian knows that he cannot get over the other man who’d left his life for Brian’s happiness. Will the memory of Pez come between them, or bring them closer together?
