Favorite was Submissive Angel by Joey W. Hill. An m/m BDSM love
Favorite was Submissive Angel by Joey W. Hill. An m/m BDSM love story set at Christmas time. Robert a antique toy store owner and Teddy Bear Dom comes to be healed of personal tragedies by Ange, a submissive employed by Robert. I found Ange to be an intriguing character, ballet dancer, cook and just a plain sweetheart. I hope in the future Ms. Hill will write a full length novel about these two.Was this review helpful?

I LOVE this publishing house. The quality of work they put out is pretty amazing. And the quality of this anthology was nothing short of that. The diversity in the stories was good. The authors are all spectacular in their genres and I have a couple new authors to explore. My rating has nothing to do with lack of quality or reading the same thing over and over again. My rating has everything to do with the lack of “aww” from my feelings department. I got it from a couple of stories, but on the overall I found it lacking. That’s the biggest reason that I am not gushing over this anthology.
But here are the great things: The BDSM was so well done. I didn’t feel uncomfortable reading it at all. It ranged from fairly hardcore to scenes I would not mess around with. None of it made me uncomfortable. The stories were a good length so there was no feeling like this glimpse into the characters lives was too short. They were all happy endings which pretty much makes my day.
All in all, I do recommend this anthology. It will more than likely be a reread for me. Maybe I can find the “aww” I was looking for the second time around.

Submissive Angel by Joey Hill -- M/M with a perfect Holiday endi
Submissive Angel by Joey Hill -- M/M with a perfect Holiday endingWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
I haven't had time to read this entire work but I have read Joey Hill's Submissive Angel. She is my favorite author and I immediately snap up everything she writes. The plus of this book is that a large percent of the proceeds are for the Domestic Violence Project of the National Leather Association-International. Joey gives us a wonderful story of two people very in need of finding each other. Robert and Ange's story is a journey of Ange slowly but sweetly taunting Robert to once again become the person he needs to be. I will never hang another Christmas light without thinking of imaginative ways to use them. This was a fantastic short erotic read. I would love to see Ms. Hill have a chance to give us more of these two because no one writes a story with a HEA quite as well as she does.

Unique Holiday Theme With Creative Settings & Steamy Encounters
Just in time for the chilliness of the holidays comes this scorching anthology that focuses on the naughty and offers a little something for everyone. With the main theme of bdsm running through each story we get relationships in the m/m, f/f, and ménage genre which are so hot they practically burn the hands holding this anthology.Was this review helpful?

Each story features memorable characters struggling to find satisfaction with another during the holidays and on every level it succeeds. Each relationship is full of angst and the sexual tension generated leaves tingles in its wake. The bdsm elements are nicely twined into each story and are believably intense and act as a conduit to bring the couples together. As a reader who shies away from extreme bdsm, the heat level of these stories were of a comfortable level. They were intense without being over the top with each conclusion being immensely satisfying.
Of all the stories my particular favorites were Ava March's 'Twas the Night and Joey W. Hill's Submissive Angel. March's book being a Regency story that was able to quickly immerse me in two men's forbidden love while showing how love can bring another untold strength. Hill's book was intriguing by bringing in religious overtones both subtly and profoundly to its erotic scenes. This was a story of healing that made my heart ache.
Each story is a worthy addition to this anthology and offer a wonderful escape from the usual holiday fare. Those wanting a bit of fire to warm them up will find this on their naughty yet nice list and after reading it will never look at a candy cane the same way again.
