Review: The Deep End by Kristen Ashley

The BookWhisperer's Rating: 

Enter a decadent sensual world where gorgeous alpha males are pleasure slaves committed to fulfilling a woman's every desire. At the elite Honey club, no boundary will be left untested, and one's darkest desires will become a sensual reality.
Olivier isn’t sure what he’s gotten himself into when he joins the Honey Club, only that a dark part of him craves the lifestyle offered by this secret, exclusive club.
When Amèlie invites Olivier to surrender, she pushes him to explore his deepest desires as a submissive. As they grow closer and find themselves falling harder than either of them anticipated, the truth about Olivier’s past could threaten the budding relationship they both long for.

Normally if you would have asked me to read a book about a Domme and her sub, I would have politely declined.  For some reason a relationship between a Domme and her sub is not something I go for when I pick up a book…except when Kristen Ashley writes it.  In fact, I just need to make a button that states, “Except when Kristen Ashley writes it” because everything that she does is just pure joy. She totally rocked this genre. 

I was slightly worried about how this was all going to work out.  KA writes alpha-males and she writes them well.  I pondered as to how she was going to deliver a male who is the sub in a relationship instead of the one that takes charge by calling all the shots and is the true alpha.  I guess this book is my lesson that I should never doubt KA and anything her brilliant mind writes because she made it work….oh, did she make it work.  While Amelie is a Domme, she finds herself attracted to an alpha-male sub (I didn’t even know a type like that existed) and there starts the whole story.

Amelie and Olivier were not the kind of couple that I would have normally fallen for but I did.  They are also not the kind of couple that I could see falling for each other but they did.  The dynamic between them was solid and perfect, leaving me feeling the sense of fulfillment when they were together.  Both were able to give each other something that the other craved and together they both learned to trust again.

Review: Don't Speak by Katy Regnery

The BookWhisperer's Rating: 

A fisherman’s daughter.

The governor’s son.

Two very different worlds.

In this modern retelling of The Little Mermaid, a fisherman’s daughter from an Outer Banks island untouched by time, meets the son of North Carolina’s governor at a fancy party where she’s working.

Laire, who wants so much more from life than her little island can offer, is swept away by wealthy, sophisticated Erik, who is, in turn, entranced by her naiveté and charm. The two spend a whirlwind summer together that ends on the knife-point of heartbreak and forces them to go their separate ways.

Years later, when fate leads them back to one another, they will discover the terrifying depth of the secrets they kept from each other, and learn that shattered hearts can only be healed by a love that willfully refuses to die.

Unfortunately, I am behind in my Katy Regnery books and this is the first one that I have read of her reimagined fairy tale and I believe that I am hooked on this series now.  Regnery took one of my least favorite fairy tales (DON’T JUDGE ME!) and turned it into a beautiful story with real people and real problems.  I can only imagine what she will do with my favorite.

Laire was just a sweet, innocent soul who won the heart of Erik with her beauty, her independence, and her innocence.  How Erik took to her was just pure and loving.  He was kind, caring, and took things slow with her so that she could learn what a relationship really was supposed to be like.  Sneaking in dates before or after Laire's shift, their love grew.  But since Laire was an islander, destined to never leave said island, and Erik was the governor's son, destine to rise above all, their attraction for each other was forbidden on both sides but dear me, they just couldn't help it until it all crumbled down.  Oh, and then the devastation of it all happened and I was so sad.  I was completely torn between the two characters.  I wanted to hate both for the choices they were making but I couldn’t because I adored them both.  I wanted nothing more than everything to go back to the way it was, before Ursula stepped in, before Laire's father got sick - I wanted their happiness and love for each other back in my life!

So fair warning, there is a patchy road ahead for all of you lovers out there but Regnery quickly turns it around and makes the sun shine again.  And along with the shining sun of an ending that Regnery brings us, she also gives us the wonderful story of how Laire grows into an even more independent woman on her own. 

Don’t Speak was a great retelling of an old classic!

Review: Mastering Her Senses by Laura Kaye

Series: Blasphemy #2

The BookWhisperer's Rating: 

He wants to dominate her senses—and her heart…

Quinton Ross has always been a thrill-seeker—so it’s no surprise that he’s drawn to extremes in the bedroom and at his BDSM club, Blasphemy, where he creates sense-depriving scenarios that blow submissives’ minds. Now if he could just find one who needs the rush as much as him…

Cassia Locke hasn’t played at Blasphemy since a caving accident left her with a paralyzing fear of the dark. Ready to fight, she knows just who to ask for help—the hard-bodied, funny-as-hell Dom she’d always crushed on—and once stood up.

Quinton is shocked and a little leery to see Cassia, but he can’t pass up the chance to dominate the alluring little sub this time. Introducing her to sensory deprivation becomes his new favorite obsession, and watching her fight fear is its own thrill. But when doubt threatens to send her running again, Quinton must find a way to master her senses—and her heart.

What starts out as a “no strings attached” helping session between Quinton and Cassia turns into a lot more throughout “Mastering Her Senses.”  After an accident, Cassia is left with the fear of the dark and has asked Quinton to help her with his sensory deprivation BDSM technique in hopes that it will help.  At first, the two relearn each other and quickly build on their time together while wearing their emotions for each other on their sleeves.

Quinton was super hot in this book.  Something about the intense need to take care of Cassia while during the scene but also any other time of the day really spoke of his growing love for her.  He tried his best to help her beat her fear, praised her when she did well, and was there if anything went wrong to help bring her back down.  He was perfect!

Cassia was as sweet as they come but I still had a hard time getting to really connect with her.  She wanted to beat her fear and she wanted Quinton but that is all I really felt from her character.  I think I needed a little more from her; whether it be that it took longer to conquer her fear or it took longer to rope in Quinton.

Either way it was a good, sugary sweet book.
