  • Hyde, an Urban Fantasy on Feb. 02, 2013

    I received this book from the author for a truthful review. HOLY HELL PEOPLE!!! This book is AMAZING!! Ok so you prolly want more of an explanation right? You shall get one. First of all, I approached this author because in college I was loved my British Lit classes....yup I was an English Lit Concentration. The fact someone wrote a contemporary version of Robert Louis Stevenson's Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde made me want to read. I saw she wanted reviews and this book SCREAMED to my inner school nerd to read. I was thrilled she said yes and juggled my reading schedule to devour this book. You don't have to know or have read the original book at all because you will love this story. Ok so the story and characters, ready and GO. Mitch (you better hope he likes you cuz only those he likes can call him that) is the biggest smartass, jackass, POS male around!!! His secretary Jolie is an total and utter bitch (GROWLING and when you read you will understand). Eden is a SAINT!! she wont cus, swear, or LIE...ever!!! Carter is Eden's "boyfriend" without the benefits who is sweet and kind but...something ain't right there. The book begins with Eden waking up buck naked and VERY SORE all over *wink wink* and not with her boyfriend but a complete stranger!! Needless to say FREAK OUT!!! Well things keep happening and she stumbles in to Mitch's office who just happens to be the man who gave her the great "workout". Well they have a lot of great hateful banter back and forth which I completely enjoyed!!! Mitch has a big secret. His "Hyde" is a cold murdering man where Eden's "Hyde" is a total sex crazed woman!! The two begin to work together to help Eden control her "Hyde" and end up falling into bed for like 4 friggin days...uhm yes please can I try that kind of therapy please!!! Throughout the story there is a mystery of "The Clinic" and you know they are involved with dosing and controlling Eden and Mitch without their knowing. Throughout the book there is also an investigation about who killed Mitch's sister, a chick at a bar and a drug dealer which allll is very important to the story. I have to say, when I find a book I enjoy I scream it from the rooftops. This book is definitely one of those books. I cannot say enough about the book. When I am done with this review, I will be opening my nook to read Jekyll (Book 2) further messing up my book blog reading schedule but IT IS WORTH IT!!!!!!!

  • Brie Pleases her New Master (After Graduation, #1) on Feb. 02, 2013

    Ok Ok soooo I was given this book from the author and I happily accepted because she is amazing!! If you don't already know, I love this author. She is amazingly gifted with the ability to make you, the reader, connect with her heroine Brie. I FEEL like I am Brie whenever I read these stories. Now BEFORE you read this book you need to make sure and read Brie at the Training Center first. This books will take place after she has been collared with her new Master. Ok so this book is about the first couple days Brie and her new Master have together. She is still very much in the learning process especially since her Master is a very well known and respected Dom. I had a big giggle when Brie and Master were *busy* on the sofa and Master had a phone call....very funny scene with Rytsar on the other end. Man that's a guy I wouldn't getting to know a little bit better *cough cough spin off series cough cough* cuz YUMMY!!! Also as we Red readers know from the first novel, Brie and cooking= epic fail. Again poor Brie tries her hand at cooking and it is a riot....omelets and spaghetti....giggles...Now the part of the book I didn't giggle with was the Wolf!!! UGH let her go Man!! I was a little bit disappointed in Brie for not telling Master about what happened between them this book BUT Brie is such a tender hearted girl. She doesn't want anyone in pain and feel bad for following her heart and breaking his. I can't wait for the next installment and yup it will be getting a review here because we LOVE LOVE LOVE Red. I hope that you enjoy the series as much as I have and continue to.
  • Queen of Hearts on Feb. 02, 2013
    (no rating)
    I received this book from the author for a truthful and honest review. WOW! This was a great, hawt, quick read. I will say I have read many forms of erotica BUT this was my first F/F. I loved how both of these characters showed true flaws or quirks when it comes to dating. Maya was the girl who would do everything to push a person away because she was terrified of true love and commitment. Erica was to busy throwing all life into her being the "Queen of Hearts" that she didn't date plus didn't believe she would ever find that one special person for herself. I found her to be kinda funny because here she sells love but really doesn't believe in it for herself. So anyway, the two meet at a new club and Maya sees Erica...sparks. Maya and Erica have a pretty intense encounter that night but in typical Maya fashion she RUNS for the hills. When Erica awakes she is a little sad because she actually enjoyed Maya. Well the two ladies think about the other but figure they will never see each other again.....BOOM Maya walks into Erica's dating service with her best friend and they are re-connected. Now I am leaving a BIG part of the plot out because HELLO I want you to read it. But lets just say Erica could be in BIG trouble dating Maya if anyone finds out.....curious aren't ya. I know you are. I gave this book a 3.5 stars and mainly it is because I wish the book would have been longer. I loved the book don't get me wrong! However, at times, I wish the scenes would have been longer and not so rushed?? I think this ia a great novel and it definitely got me thinking about Valentine's Day and what the hell am I going to get my husband!! LOL I look forward to reading her other two novels and doing reviews on them. You know us Twinsie's LOVE the new and upcoming authors!!!!
  • Brie Submits to her Master (After Graduation #2) on Feb. 25, 2013

    Who knows my love of Red Phoenix?? Go ahead raise your hands!! Well this will not shock or stun you when I say "DELICIOUS and made me cry happy tears" to describe the new installment . Incase you are not aware, Red has mad writing skills. I always feel like I am Brie and this book was noooo different. It starts out with a visit to the Training Center with Brie rocking her old uniform with a few new touches from Sir. I loved seeing Boa again and how he had to "keep his excitement" low so his domme doesn't punish him...giggles.... I had to say my favorite part was Brie and Lea getting to hang out for a bit. The two were such amazing friends and so I missed Lea like Brie has. I was sad to see that Brie was still getting crap from Ms. Clark and the other new subs for being collared by Sir. I wanted to stick my tongue out at them FOR my girl Brie so I shall here *Raspberry*!!! (Quick look to make sure Sir didn't see....SHEW!!) Ok I know you wanna know...The Wolf/Mr. Todd Wallace. Yup he shows up and yup he makes a complet and total ass of himself while getting Brie in trouble....growl. I did feel bad for him with what he reveals to her BUT at the same time I yelled "Dude get a grip and move on already!!" The last chapter of the novella totally squeezed my heart. Oh Thane....errrrr....Sir. He knows exactly what to say to make me melt. This chapter was a great peek into his soul. He is a good man and loves Brie BUT he can see a little bit closed off. This part of the book I finally understood him a lot more and it made me love him all the more. Oh I am sooo getting teary eyed remembering THE part of the chapter that got to me.....*sigh* I am going to be biting my nails to the quick waiting for the 3rd installment of this series. It is gonna be a great one...I mean they are going to meet some special people in Brie's life AND a certain delicious Dom from Brie's past experiences.........
  • Brie's Russian Fantasy (After Graduation, #3) on March 30, 2013

    I was given this book from the author. Holy Hawtness this was amazing!! I am in love with this series so I may be a bit bias???? No not bias just know amazing writing when I read it....LOL :) I was way excited to read this book because I find Rytsar mega hot and knowing Brie was going to be in Russian with him and Sir...SOLD!!! I will say I was a bit shocked to find out he was a sadist. I didn't imagine him that way and TBH he kinda made me nervous then...sooo not a pain girl. I loved getting to know Sir in a more personal way. I loved finding out the back story on how he and Sir met. It was a hilarious scene when they were playing chess and Rytsar cheated....LOL I have to admit the last chapter was my favorite with Brie, Sir and Rytsar. I will not even begin to tell you because you DEFO need to read it to appreciate it....giggles. I was sad to see the way Brie's parents feel about Brie and Sir. I understand any parent would be concerned but I felt they were way over the top in how they reacted to the couple. I was also a bit sad for Ms. Clark...yes I was sad for her.....the back story made me feel for her.....unrequited love sucks. Wanna know who she loves??? READ THE BOOK!!!!! Ok my favorite parts were seeing Lea again. I love how playful she is and finding out who she has some "feelings" for...wowzers!!! Major interesting plot spinner...LOL. OMG and Brie cooking for Gray was also a great part of the book....seems Sir has a funny side to him. I also loved the last line...Red is such a good cliffhanger/teaser that I am busting at the seams to know "WHAT HAPPENED!!!!" If you are a fan of this series, this is a great addition. If you haven't read this series PLEASE start with Brie Learns the Art of Submission at the Training center...you will not be let down!!
  • Brie Faces her Master's Fears (After Graduation, #4) on May 01, 2013

    I received this book from the author. WHERE TO BEGIN!!! AS usual Mistress Red had me in knots at the end of the last installment of Brie. When this book begins and my heart is in my chest. I was excited to find out why Brie and Master had to end their trip so early in Russia. I mean to leave Rytsar it HAD to be important.....Good Golly that man is some scary hotness!!! I was so excited to see Lea again. I have missed her friendship and love how we cant always count on her for a good couple of jokes...even if they are just so bad they are funny. *breath in and out* Mary....Brie has to talk to Mary. Wow what an exchange that was. I will say that I felt a little different towards her AFTER everything was discussed in regards to the Wolf and the graduation ceremony. Tono....*Sniff* My heart breaks because I so loved him and was sad Brie didn't want to be his little subbie BUT Sir just had Brie and my heart. I was happy to see the two re-connect and maybe even build a friendship outside of the training center (insert Wicked Evil Laughter because if you haven't read this book you have no clue the cliffhanger. ) Sir......I fell so much more in love with him. He has such demons and is so scared for what he feels for Brie. He sends her mixed signals and her naive self takes it all the wrong way but that is what we love about Brie...her tender heart and soul right??!!! Sir has some major issues he needs to work through due to his mom and dad's relationships. AND LASTLY...the documentary plays a big part of this book. I am glad to see Brie chasing her dream. I am happy that Sir is also forcing her to work versus following him all over the world while he does business. If you haven't read Brie in the Training Center please do that first and then start reading the After Graduation books. I am such a Red Phoenix fan. I feel in love with her books when I read Blissful. I haven't found a book of hers that I wasn't telling people to buy and read. She is an awesome writer and person as well....Another great book...Oh and guess what peps the ending was CLASSIC and I said "HOLY SHIT" when it read the last line!!!!
  • Brie Learns Restraint (After Graduation, #5) on June 01, 2013

    I was given this book by the author for a truthful review. I must start this review by saying BRAVO ENDING!!!! My heart is racing and I immediately messaged the author to say I was STOMPING my Foot!!! She is such a master at teasing us *giggles* in alot of ways this novel. If you are up to date with the series, SWEET!! If not please start with the Brie at the Training Center. These books take place after she is through submissive school and is in a happy and stable relationship with her Master. So this nook is another great installment to Brie. She and Tono have to face their feelings about one another. I must say I enjoyed seeing him be a little 'rougher" with Brie. During the Graduation ceremony he didn't seem to have the "harder" side so that was pretty exciting.....annnd let me say the scene was pretty HAWT!!! Todd, Todd, Todd.......I really just feel for the guy but DUDE LET HER GOOOOOOOOO...enough about him. Ms, Clarke has really really really peaked me. She hates Brie BUT......I wanna know what is up. I wanna know why she is so draw to Brie but hates Brie. I mean we learned some thing about her and Rytsar but what else makes drives her??????? Grey and Lea's Flogging Scene......I loved how Brie is so expressive and Grey can pick up on it. he is such a great man...and Lea...who doesn't love her!!! Sir *Dreamy Sigh* he was very missed in this novel but the gifts and poem defo brought a tear to my eye. I will say the cliffhanger at the end is in regards to Sir and I am guessing his past.....????? Man, it was an epic ending and i am going to be driving Red CRAZY until book 6 is out!! LOL
  • Brie Discerns Master's Heart (After Graduation, #6) on July 03, 2013

    I received this book from the author for an honest review. Here are my thoughts in a brief glimpse....Hot, WOW, Holy Shit, OMG, Oh no she didnt......can you tell my my phrasings that thsi book had a lot going on???? So here is when I gush about Red and say how rocking of an author she is...cuz people she is!! I love her books. I love how I am totally Brie when I read these books. I am in this wild ride. I was in it with her in the training center days and now when she is happy and blissfully in love with Sir/Thane/Master....whatever name you want to call him!!! I want to call him my "future baby daddy" but prolly not gonna happen!!!! This book really covers ALOT of ground. It was so action packed I was mad that I finished it so quick!! Here goes a recap.....Brie and Todd/The Wolf finally had a "meeting". I really feel BAD for Todd. He is like crazy, stalkery in love with Brie and is convinced she is in love with him. The meeting mad me teary for him, because he cant let her go. It also made me teary for Brie because she is sooo warm hearted. She didn't want to hurt him but hurting him is the only way to get him to move on.......... AND of course Sir was there to tell Brie she is so amazing and that is why he loves her *Dreamy Sigh* The 3 Musketeers......When they meet up to work on the film, I must admit, Mary grew on me. I feel so bad for her as well. She is so untrusting and takes anything the girls say as a threat. She closes herself off to Lea and Brie when they really and truly want to help the pain in the ass beeotch!!! Master's surprise returning visitor....OMG the cliffhanger last book was epic. I kinda figured it was his mom but WOW the emotion she evokes in Thane is intense. The way he opened up toi Brie and allowed her to care for him instead of closing up was HUGE this book. Last book he shut down on her several times but their relationship is going in such a great direction he accepted her care....sigh if I could only get some of that "care" like they had up against the tree.....Quivering lady parts for sure ;) Master's ending surprise for Brie....ok so I see the title of the next book so i know WHERE they are going BUT the trip back to Brie's family is gonna be pretty interesting. Master's OTHER surprise.....OMG Master and *gulp* THAT will be very very interesting. I cannot wait to see his develop this new skill from the training of Master Anderson. Can I also say how friggin much I love him too!!!! In closing, People buy this amazing series from this amazing author. I CANNOT STRESS how awesome her writing is. If you dont think this series is for you, check out her other stuff. She writes a variety and something will strike your reading fancy.
  • Touch My Heart (Heart And Soul) on Oct. 27, 2013

    I got this book from the author for an honest review. First I must begin this review with a SCREAM to the author....Shaking my fist....I yell..".PALOMA!!! you can't leave me hanging like this!!!!"..... Ok now with the review.....So I fell head over heals with William when I read the first book in this series. He is a Dominant who knows what he wants and he wants Aubrey. The first book of the series is all Aubrey's POV. We learn why she is so insecure and how William get her over it. This book is Williams POV. We see him grow more and more in love with Aubrey as she grows more and more confident in herself. There is overlap between the books but I loved it. I remembered the scenes and where Aubrey's head was so it is cool to see William's take on everything. This book does take you out past book one to see William and Aubrey finally admitting their love for each other. I will admit to tears at that point. We, the reader, knows how they feel but to finally see it.....priceless....... William finally gets to take his little elf home to meet his parents. no shock that they adore her!! She also is supportive of everything he is dealing with in terms of his mother...sniff sniff......I was glad when William got to finally talk to Aubrey's parent to see how AWFUL they are in regards to her. I was so happy with the way this book was moving and grooving that when the last few pages are read I had to back track and re-read to make sure I read it right. I was GASPING at this cliffhanger....I didn't see it coming and I will tell you that I cannot wait to see what the heck happens!!!
