Shadows & Safewords


Before I get to the reviews, I wanted to update you on the status of my weight loss journey.  This past Monday I weighed in.  I know, I know Monday?  What am I thinking?  I am thinking that weighing in on Mondays forces me not to binge during the weekend and sabotage myself and my weight loss goals.  At the past weigh-in I lost another .5 pounds.  Considering I expect my period any day, that is a very acceptable weight loss.  I can’t wait to see what I lose next week.  As of today I have lost a total of 22.4 pounds.  Bravo to me!!!
Anyway, something some people don’t know about me is that I can read 10-20 books a week.  Ever since I got my Kindle, I just can’t stop reading.  There was a time I would just veg out in front of the TV, now, I do both!  
This past week, I had the privilege of spending some time with my Camp Purgatory Hellions and our special guest, Kalista Kyle.   I immediately went to Amazon and bought her new book, Out of the Shadows.   Here is the book description.

“After kicking his abusive boyfriend to the curb, Joshua Perry wants nothing more than to focus on his career. He might be drawn to powerful, dominant men, but he’s tired of these guys thinking they own him. Then his new boss comes strolling into the office, looking good enough to lick, and the well-dressed alpha tests Joshua’s new resolve.

Caleb isn’t oblivious to Joshua’s interest, but something isn’t right. Joshua is distracted, and every time he looks at his phone, Caleb fears his new assistant might pass out right where he stands. He’s trying not to push, but every instinct tells him Joshua needs his help. Now, if he can just convince the fiercely independent blond of this, things would be just fine.

Kicking his lover out on the street wasn’t the road to freedom Joshua had expected it to be. The Enforcer won’t take no for an answer, and he’ll go to any lengths to get Joshua back into his bed, no matter how violent. Can Caleb convince Joshua to accept his help before it’s too late? Or will Joshua’s desire to stand on his own two feet cost him everything in the end?”

I really did like this book.  Although Kalista said this is a stand alone book, I request her to reconsider.  There is so many possibilities for a series here.   I mean Caleb’s family……..Josh’s best friend…..what actually did happen  with Josh’s ex?  The sexy cop?  Like I said sooo many possibilities!

Kalista I want more!  I give this book ½.  Why do you say?     I think the story isn’t finished.  I think that if it was a first book in a series, I would have given it four hearts.  However, I really did enjoy the book and Kalista is a sweetheart and it was wonderful hanging out with her.   Again….Kalista I want more!!!!
Another book I read this week that I absolutely adored (a definite ❤), which totally played to my submissive nature, was Peyton Elizabeth‘s  The First Order [Safeword LLC 1]. Here is the book Description.

Picture“Becca Schuler has always fantasized about bondage, but did that really make her depraved?  According to an ex-boyfriend, it did.  After having lost her job, and with no way to pay her rent, Becca hits a local bar to drown her sorrows. The last thing she expected was to meet a mysterious woman who assures that she can make Becca’s dream a reality. Was there really such a company called Safeword LLC that places submissive women with dominant men per their preferences on a simple application? Knowing she has nothing to lose, Becca fills out the form on Her placement lands her in the sensual and strict hands of Lane and Ross Ellison, who train her to be their ideal submissive. But when Becca’s fear of not being perfect weaves its way into their life, she sets out to be just that and unknowingly risks losing it all.”

I am waiting until I go on my vacation to read the second book in this series,  

Dare to Submit [Safeword LLC – Book Two].  There is nothing better than reading a really good book on the beach, and Peyton definitely has them in abundance.

I guess for now, I am done.  I will be checking in again soon.
