Born To Fly: Landing In Love by Aliyah Burke

Review: I found myself drawn into “Born to Fly: Landing in Love” from the very first paragraph. The dialogue was snappy, the images vivid and the characters sensationally piqued my interest. Bliss and Erich, I knew, were the pair destined to be together somehow, someway—although it took some time for me to begin to like Erich. He was sexy, attractive and infuriating but in a way I could never entirely dismiss.

Although some expressions or phrases didn’t make sense to me, in particular the overuse of some words and descriptions and a few jumps in scene without enough explanation to keep one from slight confusion, they never seriously detracted for the mood and flow of the story as a whole because I was always compelled forward, curious to know what would happen in the end.

Without hesitation I would recommend this story to others interested in m/f erotic romance. Not just loaded with stirring sexual scenes and graphic detail, “Born to Fly” also has a strong story, powerful characters and crystal clear clarity which makes you feel like applauding after reading the final page. I would definitely be interested in other titles by Aliyah Burke.

Book Description: “Air Force pilot, Major Erich “Daredevil” Stark runs into a woman leaving a club and is immediately attracted to her. He wants to know her better but after a brief and intense interaction she slips away. When they meet again, he longs to start over.

Bliss Esparza has spent her life doing two things. Dancing and raising her younger brother, When she meets the handsome pilot she knows he¦s something special.

Erich knows she’s the one for him. But one night he finds himself tossed out of her villa after offering to help her brother with a recommendation letter for military school. Will he be able to convince her to give them another chance?”

Daryk Hunter by Denise A. Agnew

Review: Initially, I found it difficult to get into “Daryk Hunter”. The primary plot was clear: Ketera needed to save her father, despite being shipwrecked and summarily “acquired” by Dane Charger, the Daryk One—in addition to various adventures, further captures, deliverances and escapes along the way. But I was left with the feeling of seeing random scenes in a very fast-moving film without being provided enough background information to care about those involved or if they would ever accomplished their goals. Romance was sadly lacking in this tale although sexual terms and graphic sex scenes were prolific.

If you’re looking for a quick read to breeze through as if on dragon’s wings, with a good deal of sex along the way, spend a few hours reading “Daryk Hunter” by Denise A. Agnew.

Book Description: “When Magonian archaeologist Ketera Aldrancos’ father is imprisoned, she’s determined to save him. Before she can do so, her ship is wrecked. Water laps at her, a man’s strong arms surround her. His husky voice soothes her. Then she realizes she’s on a foreign beach in the arms of a dreaded Dragonian. A man who looks nothing like the men she’s known. His closeness, his touch sends waves of need through Ketera’s core and shame runs through her. After all, passions are sinful.

Dane Charger, a Dragonian Daryk One, cradles the woman in his arms. He aches to introduce her to the headiest lovemaking imaginable. But his eyes flame red and a growl vibrates his throat when he realizes he’ll need to protect her from marauding slave traders led by a vicious rogue—who just happens to also be his half brother.

Two people whose supercontinents are separated by ocean and two thousand years of prejudice and fear. Two people who may be the secret to saving a race from extinction.”

In The House of Bacchus by Rodd Reduxxx

People looking for niché genre writing: horror eroticism and extreme sexually graphic detail would be enthralled by this story I believe. Reading the author’s word that this was a political parody and I am well aware of, from earlier professional reasons, of what can go on in the world of some of the leaders and powerful men and women who present a wholesome face and voice to the world yet secretly have the darkest of evil habits, I would advise reading this story at your own risk, both of morality and fortitude. It is brutal, extremely graphic and sexual yet the author’s writing skills are well above average. Rod Reduxxx presents a twisted tale many authors only hope of creating yet it was quite similar to some of the classic terrifying masterpieces of Italian film with near exact correlations.

I appreciated the racy cleverness of this story but I would have to debate with myself whether I would read more of Rod Reduxxx’s subsequent works unless I was provided with a story description exactly in a genre I enjoyed. Looking into other people’s choices of sexual and power gratification holds no interest for me. The way I think of it is this, when so many people were both horrified and attracted to the serial killer cannibal in “Silence of the Lambs” it was because despite his obvious lack of remorse and morality, he was classical. He was seducing. You hated him but you couldn’t look away or turn away from his voice. Despite being ably penned with sexual play, I was not seduced by the main character in any way nor moved by his aims, so I would have appreciated more characterization and plot than graphic detail.

A number of touches of brilliance within “The House of Bacchus” but merely disgorging “whatever lies beneath” is not enough for me to be entranced and fascinated. The story is entirely in my opinion: “Read at your own risk”, including the author’s end note.

Book Description: No pleasure is denied the rich and powerful in the House of Bacchus. Rodd Reduxxx pushes the boundaries of erotica as he examines the price of hedonism and domination in this stunning novella. Part sociopolitical parody, part fantasy story, thought-provoking and seriously explicit, you will not leave the House of Bacchus unmoved.

Mate Hunger by Marisa Chenery

Original Review: Although I had not read the first book in Marisa Chenery’s “Ra’s Chosen” series, it was not difficult to understand the unique words and phrases used to describe certain activities by the warriors because explanations were smoothly inserted. Easing into the tale was simple and I had high hopes after reading the first dozen or so pages.

I love fantasy and the story of the Chosen of Ra protecting mortals from the undead was an exciting premise, and the details and explanations of how they came into existence I particularly enjoyed. Interweaving a modern urban setting with the legends and myths of the ancient Egyptian gods kept me going because the author’s knowledge was presented to me in an understandable and thoughtful way.

I very much liked Marisa Chenery’s vivid imagery and descriptions of Egyptian beliefs. They were very professionally done and presented with a classic feel I greatly appreciated.  I felt it was a great story and plot, but I would have liked it without the level of profanity used but I realize people have different ways of speaking and expression. It took a while for the pace of the prose to build up speed before I was fully introduced to the conflict which raised the intensity of the plot and drove the story forward at a more satisfying clip. I was relieved to have something to fasten my “teeth” into and really get into the action.

The emotional relationship between Set and Desireé, the main characters, showed obvious attraction so I wanted to learn about their feelings towards each other besides their sexual interludes. The end results of their “rocky road to romance” was expected and I felt the author could be satisfied they brought the full circle of their attraction to a close while still leaving an opening for a new character’s story to be begin in the next installment.

Personal Note: The only outstanding problem I did have was the fact the female character was written not once, but twice as kneeing the warrior in the groin. As a trained warrior, and supposedly one of the best, this would be very, very improbable. One of the first thing any soldier, modern or ancient, is taught is how to avoid a knee to the groin. You learn to watch the motions and dodge, because a hard enough knee to the groin cannot only incapacitate you, it can kill you. This avoid technique is strongly taught also because unlike a knife to the flank or shoulder, one to the groin is fatal within minutes. Many women are not aware of this fact. And just for me personally, if I’ve had to sidestep to keep a woman from kneeing me it’s highly unlikely I’m going to look favourably on her after that no matter how “hot” she is.

Book Description: Book two in the Ra’s Chosen series.

Set is a warrior chosen by the sun god Ra to protect mortals from the undead who hunt them. That is what he knows. Unfortunately, having watched his leader, a fellow warrior, succumb to a destined mate, Set also knows he will someday suffer the same fate. Set doesn’t need nor want a mate. He’s just fine on his own, thank you very much. But when a spitfire of a woman is thrust into his life, whose sole mission seems to be to knee him in the groin and escape every chance she gets, he’s intrigued. A lot.

Desiree may have lusted after Set from afar for months, but that doesn’t mean she’s going to go willingly with the behemoth of a man spouting a whole bunch of garbage about immortality, an ancient Egyptian god and her destiny as his mate. No doubt he’s two bricks short of a load. But when they touch, passion like she’s never known consumes her. Perhaps he’s not so crazy after all…
