Shhh We’re Reading Dirty Books
75 - Badger to the Bone by Shelly Laurenston

75 - Badger to the Bone by Shelly Laurenston

January 13, 2021

In this third book of the Honey Badger series we get Max’s story.  While escaping from a kidnapping she finds a sexy man who doesn’t seem to know he is a shifter.  After basically kidnapping him and bringing him home she tries to help Ze understand this new world he finds himself a part of.  Ze has to work through finding out he is a panther shifter and all the emotions he is developing for Max.  Meanwhile Max has all kinds of family things going on and is also trying to deal with her own feelings.  There are deep treads of family, self discovery, and being happy with yourself.  As always, we love the relationships built between the characters and how well both Max and Ze support each other.  The book was a good follow up to the first 2 and we always love visiting this world created by Shelly.

74 - All I Want For Christmas is a Vampire by Kerrelyn Sparks

74 - All I Want For Christmas is a Vampire by Kerrelyn Sparks

December 30, 2020

We picked this book for our Christmas episode and were so happy to find an old friend.  The story and plot reminded us of the first books we ever read in this genre and why we fell in love with paranormal romance in the first place.  Ian, a 700 year old vampire is looking for his true love.  He thinks he wants a vampire so they can start out on a true equal and honest footing.  But he can’t get the new human security guard Toni out of his head.  Toni thinks she hates vamps and is just looking to prove their existence to help her friend, but seeing the kind and generous family they have created brings her pause.  Ian’s dogged persistence also starts to crack her walls.  The sex scenes are so real and so fun they make our hearts sing.  Who is up for some sexy dracula roleplaying?!  This book was a breath of fresh air in a genre dominated by books where the fate of the world is at stake, we loved just reading about a couple finding love even though one is a vampire.

73 -  Deal with her Dragon by Ruby Sirois

73 - Deal with her Dragon by Ruby Sirois

December 16, 2020

Emilie has moved past her painful marriage and is throwing everything she has into her business.  When that business starts to fail she takes drastic measures and calls upon a dragon, Ragnarr, to help save it.  Ragnarr has spent centuries nursing his hatred for witches but when Emilie calls upon him things start to change.  They both feel a strong attraction but can they work through their past baggage to make it work?  This book was so sexy and hot we couldn’t put it down.  The intimate scenes between Emilie and Ragnarr were so thoughtfully and beautifully written.  This book delivers all the sexy squishees and we loved it.  It had everything, romance, sex, action, a hilarious familiar, and an awesome witch/woman run meadery.  We would love to visit this world and get to know both the witches and dragons, even the uncircumcised ones.

72 - Supernatural Inmate by Avery Song and Veronica Agnus

72 - Supernatural Inmate by Avery Song and Veronica Agnus

December 2, 2020

I guess we shouldn’t have been surprised that this romance novel set in a supernatural prison turned out to be a reverse harem but we were!  Pleasantly surprised that is.  Cassandra grew up with her bros, all of whom were orphans like her.  Unlike her, they are supernaturals and she is a regular human, or is she?  Caught up in a kidnapping ring and locked away in a prison, Cassandra finally has to face the things she has been afraid of change and the potential for loss.  But she also grows and realizes the strength she always had within herself.  Her budding romantic relationships with her 4 bros are just getting started and we can’t wait for more in future books.  We discuss how scary change is but how beneficial it can be.  As is our routine with reverse harems we each pick our favorite of the guys.

71 - Siren Misfit by EveLanglais

71 - Siren Misfit by EveLanglais

November 18, 2020

We return to the Misfit Series by Eve Langlais.  This is the second book and focuses on the romance between part-siren/part-mermaid Lana and demigod Jory.  Initially there is not much to bring these two together, beyond their love of donuts and coffee.  But things heat up as Jory accompanies Lana to discover more about her mysterious origins.  We can’t get enough of the hot oral action Jory bestows upon Lana.  The plane scene goes from super hot to super scary when a kraken appears!  While this was not our favorite book by Eve or even favorite of the Misfit books, it was still fun.  Eve’s trademarked humor is sprinkled throughout and it ends with more donuts, coffee, and cunilingus, who could complain!

70 - Desired Unchained by Larissa Ione

70 - Desired Unchained by Larissa Ione

November 4, 2020

Shade broke Runa’s heart a year ago when she found him in bed with not one, but two other women.  Finding him chained up in the same cell as her when she gets caught by an unknown bad guy doesn’t improve her situation.  However, as much as she wants to deny her heart and hold on to her anger the heat between them has other ideas.  While still captive she becomes his bound mate and she makes him a werewolf, then things start to get complicated.  How many times will Runa keep putting up with Shades rejection?  Turns out, as many times as she needs to break through his walls and get to the truth he is hiding.  Considering he is a seminous demon and she is a werewolf we were a little surprised by the tame sex.  It says something that we were more interested in the relationship developing between Kynan and Gem than the main characters.  Despite that, the series is hot and we are definitely interested in reading the next book.

67 - Haunted / Coveted by Christina C. Jones

67 - Haunted / Coveted by Christina C. Jones

September 23, 2020

Haunted

The title of this book is so apt.  The atmosphere around Khalida is eerie and the sense that she is being haunted is palpable.  As she tries to convince herself she is content in her life, Aram enters and shows her that she truly longs for so much more.  At first the path to understanding her true nature and history is hard but with Aram as a catalyst Khalida rediscovers her memories and what she has been missing. The scenes between Aram and Khalida could not be hotter!  The electricity jumps off the page and runs along your skin making everything tingle.  The whole book kept us engaged and guessing as to what was coming next.

Coveted

Four years after writing Haunted, Christina returns to the world to give us Khalida’s sister’s story.  We follow as mysterious things keep happening around Ancelin and lead to Nasir being assigned to protect her from the darkness.  This book is a good follow up to Haunted but suffers a bit from the twist not being as surprising.  Luckily, the sex is just as steamy!  The massage scene in particular was one of our favorites.  Don’t get too excited for a nice resolution, the book ends with so much more to be investigated and explained.  We look forward to revisiting this world when more books come, hopefully it's not another four years!
