  • Resistance is Fertile: The Devil's Forced Breeding on March 21, 2022

    As advertised, this is a dark and twisted, cover to cover non-con, taboo erotica. This was short, fun and well done, with a nice “changed into an omega” twist. Check out Anna Wineheart newer non-con release, Monster-forced, which I thought was even better and weirdly creative!
  • Monster-Forced: The Monster's Forced Breeding on March 22, 2022

    The set-up is just ridiculous and creepy enough: a big statue turns into a monster and fucks the MC at night while he thinks he's just having nightmares. It has everything it says it has (noncon, forced breeding, somnophilia), plus some (cockwarming!). The erotica gets quite creative in some parts. Even though it's definitely noncon, it stills ends with a cute HEA.
  • End Scene on March 22, 2022

    Wow, I really like this. This was fluffy and funny, not what you would normally expect from taboo stories. This is the kind of thing I read now, apparently. Both MCs were great. Atticus is the kind of MC who does the whole nervous rambling that I usually hate, except he was actually funny, so I loved it. Despite not getting his POV, Asher still felt like a complete character. I still felt a lot for him and his struggles with coming to terms with everything! This was really steamy and hot, but still got a slow burn going for the emotional part, so it held my attention pretty well and I couldn't put it down. I only wished Jay and Dean wouldn't have been so creepy. I still would seriously recommend this even if you haven't read the trope before.
  • Family Values: Sinful Delights #2 on April 05, 2022

    I really wanted to like this MMM twincest story, because I've heard a lot of good things from this author. But in the end, the things I thought I would like (the captor/captive trope, the taboo, the mafia setting) all fell flat to me. A part of it might be a me thing, because there were still a lot of things to like about this book. The writing style is great, the sex scenes are really hot, and I liked that both twins were distinct characters and both their relationships with Abbadon developed on their own and had its own dynamics. I liked that there wasn’t any jealousy in the twins relationship and they both felt very secure in their attachment to one another. 
 That said, I was disappointed that the taboo relationship was already established. This book didn’t feel very taboo to me, in a way? I guess it could be nice to read a twincest book without the angst and the shame, but I still wanted a little forbidden vibe or at least more tension, and I didn’t feel any here. Not enough tension between the brothers, but also not enough tension between them and Abbadon, who was supposed to be their captor, but ended up being a great, nice host (don’t expect Stockholm-like vibes here). I wanted more from this story but I ended up being a little bored. I still look forward to trying more from this author. I don't know if I'm ready yet for intergenerational and Always Oskar, but I'm very curious about Twisted Together. (Edited to add: I did end up reading Twisted Together and I LOVED it!) I received a free copy (ARC) in exchange for an honest review.
  • Twisted Together on April 16, 2022

    This is definitely not for everyone. It's taboo (twincest) and dark, not only because of the non-con/dubcon, but also because there's some psychological manipulation from one of the MC. But if you go in with the right expectations and a healthy dose of suspension of disbelief, the OTT premise becomes kind of fun, actually! It's messed up, but also, kind of silly? I don't know exactly, but I loved it. The prose is good, the codependant dynamics between the twins was lovely, and the sex scenes were pretty hot. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who's OK with the above themes!
  • Hunger and Other Tales of Erotic Horror on May 17, 2022

    This is an anthology of short stories I really recommend for fans of erotic horror (or for people who want to try it out, like me!). One of the short stories could be qualified as a romance with an HEA: it’s about a shipwrecked fisherman and a monstrous merman and is pretty sweet, and reads almost like a fairytale (I loved it!). The others stories are all, it turns out, legitimately horror stories, with no HEA. They really showcase Adara Wolf’s excellent writing abilities, and are equal parts intriguing and creepy. All of them has a paranormal twist. The hypnotized puppy play at the end was a favorite! You can read a little description of the short stories on Adara Wolf's website, in the "Patreon Index" section.
