    This love story is simply Smuttastic! And mixed into all this fi

    This love story is simply Smuttastic! And mixed into all this filthy sex is a very tender love story about two people who somehow mange to find the perfect match.  Though not for the faint of the heart (think XXX), this romance told through the lens of erotic love first and romantic love second presents a tale of the vulnerable connection that is essenical to life long passion and companionship. 




    They like as well as really love each other. This is mark of a superior Romance novel in my opinion. 




    I adored our hero.  I love anyone who is just very much themselves. Raw and real in the world.  He is a shy, well hung, big and tall, mechanically inclined, obsessively neat, bookworm. King of the Beta heroes in all the best ways. I would push up his glasses any day.  I feel like I really get to know him as well. I love his wry humor. 




    Madison, despite the book being told in the first person, is much less knowable. This is part of the truth of her character. She is guarded even in her own thoughts and spirals around her emotions. She is funny, gutsy, and grand even so. She has a wonderful arc in the book. I just wish we got more time with the HEA so I could see her fully come into herself. 




    I dislike the menage in the book even though I admit it is true to this world and gave conflict to the plot. I just wish there was another conflict or that the purely character driven ones were enough for more readers. 




    If you like erotic romance with excellent word smithing, compelling characters, and a moving love story, this is a not to be missed read for you. 








    I was given this book for my honest review. So there you have it.

    Don¿t let the name Madison Monroe fool you. She¿s one part Wicke

    Don’t let the name Madison Monroe fool you. She’s one part Wicked Words bookstore owner, and nearly three parts baddy. She’s into dominance, subservience, and just about anything in between. She has CONTROL issues and monogamy ones too, with a body built for sin, and an active imagination to boot. But if you can capture her attention, you may die butt naked with a smile on your face after emptying your spunk tank.

    Putting theory into practice and with a file cabinet full of erotica tales, Madison’s one wicked lady, but neither of her male counterparts utter a single word of protest. In fact, once the action reached the bedroom, or the backroom, there were more than a few incoherent utterances, most of which would have been accentuated with exclamation points. And I couldn’t help doing the wave every time the sexual acrobatics stepped onto the printed page.

    Sure, this novel was filthy and raunchy and messy and grubby, and I may have needed to spray myself down with a garden hose after finishing this tale, but that was why it had such strong appeal. If you like it when the female cracks the whip and dominates you in ways you never thought possible, you might find yourself enjoying a wet dream or two at the end of this tale. Once the sex train ended, I wanted to hop right back on, and enjoy this fantasy ride all over again.

    I received this book for free through NetGalley.
