Read Kay’s Review: Beautiful Surrender

Excerpt

His hand wrapped around the nape of my neck, and he pulled back briefly. His intense amber eyes were on me and his breathing was heavy.

He didn’t seem like himself. That perfect composure he always wrapped around himself like a designer suit was gone.

He was shirtless.

Exposed.

Heaving.

Breathless.

And it was beautiful.

Because I knew it was just for me.

Maybe I’d been jealous of what I saw between him and his ballerina. But now I knew. Now I knew that he had his walls up around her, as well.

I was the only one he showed this side of himself to.

“Kiss me back, goddammit,” he growled against my neck, nipping at the skin.

I so wanted to. I wanted to let myself fall into him. I’d been burned by my own flames for so long that I was more than ready to let them go out if I thought someone would come along and keep me warm.

And Xavier seemed like the type of man that would do just that. He seemed like the type of man I could rely on.

I pressed my palms against his firm pectorals.

And then, I pushed him away.

“I’ll never  be the other woman,” I said firmly.

“There’s no one else,” he growled.

“She left less than an hour ago,” I reminded him with a huff.

“She’s nothing to me,” he said before moving in again. I pushed against him but his strength overwhelmed me. His body was on me, and I barely had any fight left within me.

“You’re lying,” I whispered, looking away from his intense gaze.

His fingers gripped my chin roughly and  turned my head so that I couldn’t help but look at him. “I don’t lie. I’ve never lied a day in my life. And I certainly wouldn’t break that over a woman.”

“Is that all I am? Just some woman?”

“Kiss me back and I’ll make you more than that.”

Did I believe him? Could it really be true that she was nothing to him? I saw the way he was with her. It was nothing like the way he was with me right now. He was all cold detachment with her.

And this?

His ice was gone.

Completely gone.

All I could feel were the scorching bright flames of his heart. The flames that, try as he might, he couldn’t hide. They showed so brilliantly through his eyes.

“I’m not going to fall in love with you,” I whispered, even though I knew it was a lie.

“I don’t believe in love,” was his response.

“Good, then,” I grit out, not allowing myself to feel the disappointment that was welling up inside of me.

“You want this?” he asked, pushing his body into me. I could feel his erection against my stomach. There was no questioning what he wanted. “Tell me you want this.” He moved in closer, his lips hovering just above my ear. “Get down on your knees and beg me for it.”

My sex clenched at his words as shivers wracked my body. I did want him. Even still, I was never going to give into him that way.

“I’ll never beg you for anything,” I forced myself to say.

His face hardened. “I’m not fucking playing around Aubrey. Say you want this, say you want me, or all of this stops.”

“I want all of this,” I whispered. “I’m just never going to beg you for it.”

“You’re such a brat,” he nearly spat but he couldn’t hide his lust for me. I could see it in his eyes and the way he moved his body against me. I could feel it in how firm he was for me.

“Don’t act like you don’t like it,” I replied.

He captured my lips as I spoke and bit down hard on my lower lip. I gasped and he invaded my mouth with his tongue. I moaned as my nails dug into the firm muscles of his shoulders.

He consumed me with this kiss. His presence normally was dominating, consuming, intimidating. But, this kiss was that and more.

His fingers held my chin firmly in place, and I had no way to fight him. No way to refuse him. No way to escape him.

None of that mattered though.

Because I didn’t want to do any of that.

I wanted to be here. I wanted his lips on me. I wanted to erase whatever it was I saw earlier, even if he said it was nothing.

He pulled back and I sucked in breath. Suddenly I found myself being flipped around so that my body was pressed against the wall. He held me there and I knew I wouldn’t escape him if he didn’t want me to.

“I don’t need to pretend for you. I don’t like it. Your attitude, your challenges. You’re a spoiled little brat, Ms. Knight. You deserve to be punished.”

He pulled the lace thong I didn’t remember putting on aside and his fingers danced just beside my folds. My legs were shaking with anticipation. I wanted him to touch me more than I wanted anything, but he seemed determined to make me beg for it.

I bit down on my tongue hard to stop myself from giving in. To stop myself from going back on my word within less than thirty seconds.

“So strong. So fierce. So feisty,” he whispered against my ear before sucking on the lobe.

“Do what you came here to do,” I goaded him. “Or I’m going to think you’ve lost your nerve.”

He smirked against my skin. “You’re lucky I don’t have a paddle, or your ass would be as fiery as your attitude.”

“You wouldn’t dare,” I seethed as he continued to tease me, massaging the inside of my thighs gently.

His finger dipped inside my entrance suddenly, and I screamed at the intrusion as he started to work me expertly.

“What was that, Ms. Knight?” he whispered against me as he continued to work me, pressing hard against my G-spot with each stroke. “Were you trying to suggest that I lack the nerve to take you? Was that it?”

I wanted to respond. I wanted to fight back at his comment. But, I could barely breathe with how fast he was working me now. Air seemed to catch in my throat, and I was fairly sure my legs had given out and his strength was the only thing holding me up.

Just as I was about to crest, he pulled his finger out of me and wrapped it around the front of my body. I opened my mouth to protest and instead found his thick fingers shoved inside.

“Taste yourself on me, Ms. Knight. Tell me how good submitting to me tastes.”

I groaned around his fingers before he pulled them out. His body pulled back, and I thought for a minute that he really intended to leave the job unfinished.

But within seconds he was pressing me back against the wall and sheathing himself inside of me.

“Fuck!” I cursed at the feel of him. He’d taken me raw, and I could feel every beautiful inch of his stiff cock pressing deeper and deeper inside of me.

“You’re beautiful when you don’t resist,” he whispered against my back before he started to move.

Review – Beautiful Submission by Ivy Wild

59595098. sy475

Beautiful Submission 
(A standalone)

Publication Date: December 3, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Captive/Submission/Enemies-to-Lovers/Age Gap Romance

Author: Ivy Wild

Review Rating: 4.5 Gold Stars4.5 stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

This is not a typical BDSM romance. This is a slow burn romance with a lot of psychological elements where love isn’t earned through paddles, but control.

Aubrey Knight is the daughter of a senator. She has grown up in a fake world and has never really known what it’s like to be herself. Is she a brat? Yes, she is pretty good at acting out, but when it’s the only way to gain attention in a world where she’s never known love, and it’s the only thing she knows.

Xavier Payne is a man all about control and order. When he barters a deal with the senator and Aubrey is the collateral. Xavier uses the time Aubrey is isolated in his home to fix the broken girl, but he never thought she’d turn the tables on him and crack his ice filled chest open with all of her fire.

While these two would seem like complete opposites; a bratty, spoiled girl vs. a polished, controlled man. The more time they spend together and melt each other walls, they find out they may be more alike than they ever would have guessed.

Fire vs. ice is the underlying theme throughout the entire story, but will fire melt the ice or will the ice put out the fire? These two are opposite and don’t give in easy, it’s a true battle to find any happiness, but neither have really experienced happiness in their lives to know it is possible and should be important.

This is a slow burn, so don’t get frustrated by the back and forth. In a true enemies to lovers that push and pull makes that slow burn bubble and boil until it steams up to the perfect temperature.

Excerpt

I watched her as she slept. The rise and fall of her naked chest was so fucking peaceful. A large part of me wanted to just take her and disappear to some island in the Caribbean where no one would know us or care.

But I knew neither of our lives were that simple.

What the fuck was I doing?

What the fuck was I even thinking? And of course, the little princess had to be a virgin. I’d been way off the mark with her. She was so goddamn sure of herself when she talked and the way she acted around me that time in her bedroom.

Fuck.

I was so fucking fucked it wasn’t even funny.

Everything.

All of it.

Five years of work.

Five years of risk.

For a bit of untouched pussy.

But maybe my dick knew better than my head. Because Madelyn was so much more than just a good lay. What she’d said to me nearly broke me when she’d said it.

It spoke to me in a way that it shouldn’t have.

Someone like her, from her upbringing, with her wealth, shouldn’t have been able to connect with my fucked up life so easily.

With the notion of wanting something for yourself. Of wanting to make sure no one else had control over you. Of not wanting to be reliant on others.

The girl was more gangster than most of the kids working for Johnny.

“Fuck,” I breathed out.

She moved in the bed and turned to look at me. It was around dusk and the suite was dark, but even still, her blue eyes shined, giving off “You’re so fucking screwed” signals to my brain.

“Hey,” she said groggily. “You okay?”

I nodded, not sure what to say. What did you even say to a girl after you took her virginity? Well, after she gave it to you. This was new territory for me. Most of the girls I’d hooked up with were experienced and the majority were professionals.

She was silent for a beat before she finally spoke. “So, what happens now?”

I winced. It was the question I’d been dreading because it was one I didn’t have the answer to. Was I just supposed to hand her over to Johnny, knowing who Johnny was and how he treated his laundry list of wives?

But, if I didn’t, I might as well flush the last five years of risk and my chance at revenge down the drain because there was no coming back if I ever got found out.

Shit.

“I don’t know,” I replied honestly.

She sat up in bed and pulled the sheet toward her. She looked down to play with the fabric a bit as she spoke. “I knew what this was when I initiated, Max. I’m not looking for you to hide me out or something.”

“Good,” I let slip past my lips. She didn’t say anything, but even I knew what I’d said stung. I turned around to face her, not letting myself touch her even though that’s all I wanted to do.

She gave me a sad smile and I could feel it in my soul. She looked right through me the way no one in my life ever had. As if she knew what made me tick and that it wasn’t my heart.

“Why are you with Johnny, Max? You don’t belong there. Something else is going on.”

I gave her a lazy smile, trying desperately not to crack under her bright blue eyes.

“Whattya mean?”

She gave me a knowing look. “I mean, you’re obviously not from Boston since you haven’t dropped one ‘r’ the entire time I’ve known you. And,” she looked down briefly and shrugged. “I dunno. I just have a feeling about you. About the real you. So who are you really?” She looked back up at me with those baby blues and fuck if they didn’t break me.

I was no pussy.

I’d been to war.

I’d seen combat.

I’d lost people.

I’d taken people.

I meant what I said to her when I said I wasn’t some white knight.

I’d been tortured, beaten and broken and I’d never cracked under the pressure.

But, when the fucking princess asked me that question and looked at me that way, my lips started moving, spilling secrets I’d sworn I’d take to my grave all over the fucking room.

Review – My Fiancé’s Bodyguard by Ivy Wild

58235545. sy475

My Fiance’s Bodyguard 
(A standalone)

Publication Date: August 5, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Forbidden/Opposites Attract/Mafia Romance

Author: Ivy Wild

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A different take on the forbidden romance, with a grumpy hero that is easy to fall in love with and a sassy heroine with a ton of spirit.

Max and Madelyn are a slow to burn romance wrapped up in a mafia story that is unlike any other I’ve read before. Madelyn has basically been locked away for most of her life and her father has been unsuccessfully been trying to marry her off, that is until the big mafia boss asks for her hand and this time her greedy father doesn’t say no. The age difference is probably grandfather to granddaughter spread, but it’s what he does, his personality, etc…along with his age that has Maddie disgruntled with the decision and nothing will  stop her from halting the marriage, if it’s the last thing she ever does.

Max has worked for Johnny Maldonado for the past five years. He’s worked his way up in the organization garnering any information he can and he won’t let a wealthy princess get in his way of what he’s after.

Max was super grumpy about his job and Maddie was extremely oblivious about the world she grew up in…was this intentional? Knowing the beautiful style Ivy Wild typically writes, I’m going to say yes.

There were so many hints dropped along the way that there was a lot more depth to these characters than the shallowness they give off at first, it was certainly what kept me reading because I had to know what secrets Max was holding on to and I just knew Maddie was full of more than the princess cover she portrayed. I’ll just drop that yes, both characters grew in depth and the story was twisty and gave exactly what I was expecting from an Ivy Wild book.

These two, once they let their guards down, discovered they had more in common then they ever would have thought; a wealthy girl that Max calls Princess and a mafia thug with more than meets the eye. Perhaps with the same end goal, they could help one another, if they don’t get caught and end up dead in the process.

Excerpt

“And just where do you think you’re going?” a deep voice slurred from somewhere near the door. I didn’t need to look up to know who it was.

“I’m going home, Silas,” I said, fighting back the tears that were threatening to run down my face as I tried to fit too many textbooks into my backpack.

“Like fuck you are,” he said, making his way toward me.

I stood to my full height and looked at him. My heart dropped at seeing him this way. “Silas, you’re drunk.” I could smell the marijuana coming off of him in waves. “And probably high. You should call it a night.”

I didn’t know why I was trying to give him advice. I should have told him to go fuck himself and be done with it.

“I’ll call it a night if you call it one with me,” he drawled, moving in closer to me.

“Get away from me, Silas,” I said, trying to feign confidence but he just laughed.

“You don’t want that, Sky. I saw the way you looked at me. The way you looked at her. You wanted that to be you, hm?”

I didn’t think his comment warranted a response. Either that or I was too choked up to say something back. I picked up my backpack and tried to lift it onto my shoulders, but even in his inebriated state he was quick. The bag tumbled to the floor as he pushed it away and I felt my back press into the wall behind me.

“Admit it, Sky. You. Want. Me.” He was so close to me now. His lips were ghosting against my neck and his hand was pressing against my hip. 

I hated this.

I hated him.

I hated the way he made me feel.

And I hated the way he smelled like someone else’s perfume.

“I can smell her on you,” I seethed at him through grit teeth. 

He pulled back, lifting his face so that his eyes were even with mine. His fingers moved up, making me shiver on their ascent before pinching my chin. I grimaced as I wondered whether it was the hand that had, minutes before, been knuckle deep in another woman’s cunt.

“You wish it were you, don’t you?” he drawled.

“No,” I bit back, but I was a fucking liar. Truth was, I wanted Silas. I wanted him bad. And I wanted him all to myself. I didn’t want to share him. Not with some bimbo. Not with anyone. I loved the way him and I had developed our study routine. I loved that out of everyone in his life, except for maybe his mother, I knew him the best.

He had hot edges and a frozen center, but at least I knew all the secrets he kept hidden there were for me and me alone. But I didn’t know how to say any of this. Worse than that, I didn’t know how to admit any of this. I hated and wanted him at the same time. He said I was a contradiction but that was only because he tore me in two.

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Wow! Brilliantly written second chance romance!

Silas Jenkins, he’s sassy, grumpy, and basically hates everyone. Actually hate requires some form of caring which Silas does not care about anything or anyone, except his mother. We find out early on that his mother is sick and dying and to the outside world money may look like it affords everything, but even money can’t buy the one thing Silas really wants; his mother’s life. The mask Silas wears outside of visiting his mother is indifference and the only other person to see underneath that mask is a girl that didn’t grow up around all the wealth and influence, Skyler Jackson.

Skyler is the polar opposite of Silas, her mom works for one of the rich families, making them the help. Where Silas is the King of school, all she wants to do is fade into the background, but the two of them form a secret bond after she is basically blackmailed into doing his homework. Their friendship (if you call it that) doesn’t end well, as secrets between emotional teens never do, but ten years pass and Skyler finds herself trapped in Silas’ web once again and this time she may not be able to escape.

I was completely drawn into how this story was crafted. It moves back and forth between the present and the past, giving snapshots on how Skyler and Silas not only befriended one another, but how they reconnected ten years later. The timelines moved perfectly and kept the pages turning, while keeping their personalities in sync to who they were and who they grew up to be not only alone, but also together.

Silas is such a lost soul, swimming in a cavern of self doubt when it comes to feelings or intimacy which is why he’s turned that emotion off. Simultaneously he’s man of no doubt when it comes to something he wants. He pushes and correls until he gets the desired outcome. The rare exception to both of these things in his life has been Skyler and he’s never known what to do about it, she is a rare light around him and this is what love truly does for someone, especially someone like Silas.

Skyler, a girl who prefers to hide, but she is also a girl filled with passion. She only shows the world her shadow, but around Silas she releases that fire. Silas wants her fire, he thirsts for it. Skyler has to make a decision if she wants to burn for him or walk away when he returns to her life. Together they are combustible and she isn’t sure she’s ready to burn more bridges.

I really loved how everything fell into place and how the entire story was constructed. Excellent plot and beautiful moments. I would read Ivy Wild again in a heartbeat!
