Drummers Beat (Satans Devils MC #2) by Manda Mellett


Drummer’s Beat (Satan’s Devils #2) by Manda Mellett

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Can’t beat this Racy, raging hot read!
So. Tucson. That place literally gets flooded with the Satans Devils MC.

This is the first book I have read from Manda Mellett, courtesy of an ARC, and I’m glad I let this one jump the queue.
So. OK.
Hunky tattooed biker MC? Check.
Secret baby phenomenon? Check ( yes. Check. Just read the book)
BDSM Master/ slave dynamic explored? Check.
Virgin territory for H and h? Check. (yes. CHECK. Just READ the book)
Darkish read without getting too dark for the weak spirited and highly strung? Check
Machine guns, mayhem, murder, mommies and military? Check.Check.Check. Just keep checking…

What’s not to lurve here???

This is a great mix – like a peanut butter cup…or a salted caramel sundae…a lil bit sweet, a lot sharp, tied together as a gritty book, the second in the Satans Devils MC series (btw..who else’s Devils would they be? Just sayn…)

Can be read as a standalone, with only a few niggling throwbacks to the escapades of Book #1 which can be easily ignored by the thunderous pace of this gem.

Manda has Drum/Drummer’s male PoV of the H down pat, as unapologetic and frustratedly confused as any good MC Prez should be with the feelings he is having to handle. It’s a joy to follow the unfolding of this relationship in spite of the backdrop of guns, murder, torture, BEER, bikes and bikers.

But the kicker for me is Sam/Samantha, the strong, sexy, intelligent h of this tale. Just loved her sass and grit.

Great plot, some brilliant cringeworthy scenes ( I seriously read a few peeking out from between my fingers in horror/ embarrassment…)

This is a solid 4 star read

The only problem for Manda is the risk that with all the tropes and genres woven into this book, there may be nothing left to give in any future books to this series!

Which would be a pity as I’ve added Ms Mellett to my extremely small list of 1-click buy authors!
Woman, pull up a shelf and park your sweet butt (oops )…and the smexy scenes? All I can say is “strike a light! Good on yer, girl” – welcome to her library of congress…!!

Barbarian’s Lady by Ruby Dixon

Barbarian's Lady (Ice Planet Barbarians, #13)Barbarian’s Lady by Ruby Dixon

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The new batch of human females, now bought and freed from slavery continue to be matched up with the Sa-Khui males on Not-Hoth, the ice and snowbound world. 

This is a light but juicy read from Ruby Dixon.

Best thing of all in her writing, the recognition that there is more than one ethnicity or type of beauty in the world, without making it a big deal.  

This h is a big, bold (think Gwendoline Christie/ Brienne of Tarth) but with a slighty insecure undertone. Her H is the fun loving, comedian with no stomach for the sight of his own blood, hunter.  A great combo.

Great writing as usual, clear to point, kept the characters believeable, yes, even if the H is blue-skinned with horns, a tail and fangs!

I seriously can’t get enough of this series!
Solid 4 stars

“His Red Lily” by Amelia Smarts – spanking novels NSFW

His Little Red LilyHis Little Red Lily by Amelia Smarts

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

If you’re ok with spanking romances then this book is for you. The H and h find happiness in the Wild West as she learns to trust him and he gets to punish her disobedience or wildness with several bouts of spanking.

The story is good although I did grind my teeth a bit at how helpless Lily gets when it comes to her own safety with her douche intended fiancé – the town preacher.

Not really my style but was well written which is something I guess!

Would read other Amelia Smarts books.

Alexa Riley- the Short, Smexy instalove DD/ lg trope

So I just thought I should do a piece on the world of Alexa Riley’s short novellas.  I’ll be going back and putting up a bit more in my reviews on Goodreads – and maybe the ‘Zon as and when, but wanted to do the overall summary here.

For those that aren’t familiar with this successful duo, these books are hot, steamy quick reads from two authors aimed at providing a fantasy escape from life on your lunchtime… If you read quickly

I added the Alexa Riley books to my list of reads this year after stumbling across Trailer Trash Virgin during one of my trawls through Amazon.

The trope has some taboo but follows the same path with a HEA for h and H. And no cheating. Ever. Everrrr.

Their Innocence series was full on Age-Play couples that fowns their OTL (one true love) and DD/lg in one package.

Save a horse…  (or Ride ’em Cowboy!)

Another AR winner in the short smexy read is the Cowboys and Virgin series, although as the first one was also in the Secret Baby genre (OK, via IVF,  so yes, strictly speaking it is still a virgin h…)

To my shame, I didn’t realise that this was part of a new cowboy virgin trope (although it dI’d say that on the cover…!)

These have been a light hearted enjoyable read, border-line Age-Play but definitely a smattering of the DD/lg trope that this authoring duo do so well. It’s almost like the Breeder series in its tone:

Breaking the kiss, I take in a deep breath, having never felt something so strong in my life. The pull to her is unreal, and I can’t stop myself from wanting her in the most basic and primal way.

She moves on my cock again, and this time I let her. Because I can’t deny her something that she enjoys.

I can feel the heat of her panty-covered pussy through my pajamas as she rubs against me. The teasing friction is too much and I can’t hold back anymore. My cock pulses, and I cum, spreading the warm seed against the flannel material, wetting the front of them.

“Oh, that felt good.” She says reaching down and rubs the warm, wet spot, and I nearly cum again from her innocent touch. She’s so innocent, but bold and curious at the same time.

I put my hand over hers and hold it there, letting her feel the throbs of my cock as I finish spurting. She’s breathy, and I know she’s probably aching, too. So I reach up and touch her panties, feeling the wet spot she’s made there.

“Let me make you feel good, too, baby doll,” I tell her, wanting her to feel the same pleasure I did. Needing it.

“Pushing the panties to the side, I slide my pinky finger inside her and feel her clench around it. She’s so tiny, I have a hard time getting it in, but she’s slick with need and I make it work. After a second I slide my pinky out and she whines.

“Shhh. I think you can take something bigger now.” I use my index finger, feeling her tightness again, and it takes a moment for her to relax and let me in.

Her back is to my front and her legs are spread wide as I bring my other hand around to rub her wet clit. Her big green eyes open wide in wonder and want. She’s so sticky with need, and her pussy opens for my touch. I’m finger-fucking her a little harder now, trying to work her opening wider, wide enough so that she can take my cock. Not right this second, but soon. She’s mine, and I want to stake my claim. I don’t want another man sniffing around after her and her not be marked.

 Riley, Alexa. “The Wanted Virgin” (Cowboys & Virgins Book 3).

The following book in the series have the same Instalove that serves readers so well.

If I do reviews of thes or other Alexa Riley books I’ll link them with this post.
