What to Expect: An exploration of the intersection of our online identities and our physical lives, the realities of the modern economy, and the awesome power of fandom, all wrapped up in lots and lots of explicit sex. A smart and hot love letter to the digital age.
I’ll be straight with you, fellow readers: If I were going to honestly represent what I’ve been reading this week, it would consist of all seven of Ruby Dixon’s Ice Planet Barbarians books, plus the two “slice of life” short stories. These short stories include the accurately named Ice Ice Babies, about life after giving birth to alien baby twins named Anna and Elsa. I fucking love these books. I’ve been stressed, and this level of silly fun was exactly what I needed right now.
So just in case blue aliens aren’t your bag, here are three books I’ve read and enjoyed in the past few weeks!

What’s in store for you: Cinderella retold as you’d never expect it – there are courtesans and chilling dark magic, gifts of fire and curses couched as lucky charms, hexes and voodoo dolls and a tale so artfully weaved you’ll be left saying, WAIT! It’s only a novella?! I need more. So much MOOOOORE.
It’s no secret that I adore J.R. Gray, as an author and a person. He’s an enigmatic character and comes up with some of the HOTTEST books on the scene. His newest is out on March 23rd and, well, you’ve seen that cover, right? …RIGHT?! No? Well, even if you have I’m posting it again ’cause I just cannot get enough!
If you’re like me, I’m absolutely certain you want more of this book (and that cover! And most of all, Gray!)….and I have got what you need. In anticipation of Clouded Hell’s release, Gray recently asked his Facebook group, The Gray Pack, to throw out any questions they may have for him. What they asked was an awesome mix of personal, craft, and Clouded Hell exclusives and Gray answers…even the dirty ones.
If you follow me or this site pretty regularly, there are two things you will know with a great deal of certainty:
1. I adore author Roan Parrish. Why? Girlfriend can write. Whether it’s sexy, nuanced romance, an essay about gender, identity, and pandering, or a paranormal Halloween short, one thing’s for sure: it is all gorgeous and lush and poetic in a way that will just sort of…linger, burrowing inside you and letting you think of nothing else.
2. I’ve been dying to get my hands on some information – any information – about the sequel to In the Middle of Somewhere. Who would the book be about? What would the title be? WOULD WE SEE MORE REX OR DANIEL?!
Well, finally, the loooooong wait is now over and I can tell you all about that next book. So now the BIG reveal! Read More
Hello, all! Guess what today is? Can you? I mean, can you?!
It’s release day for a book that is near and dear to my heart: Kris Ripper’s Catalysts! What’s Catalysts, you ask? Well, it’s a brand new, updated version of two old favorites. Here’s the blurb:
Sometimes all it takes is meeting one person to turn your world upside down. Will Derrie likes girls but he isn’t honest with them; he wants kinky sex and lots of it. When Hugh offers to dominate him, no sex required, Will realizes it might not be so easy to separate the two.
Sometimes all it takes is a new angle on an old idea to change everything you thought you wanted. Hugh Reynolds holds the world at arm’s length. He lives alone, works alone, and he thinks he’s as happy as he’ll ever be. But Will gets under his skin and once he’s gone, Hugh realizes he doesn’t want to go it alone forever.
Sometimes all it takes is a random encounter to open your mind (and your heart). Truman Jennings hits on a cute guy at a conference and he’s smitten by the end of their first date. Hugh’s not the kindest or the easiest boyfriend Truman’s ever had, but he brings one thing to their relationship that no one else could: kinky, adventurous, sweetly submissive Will.
Sometimes you can’t find the right man till you find the wrong one. Three men. Three sides to love, and intimacy, and laughter. Three people who didn’t know what they were looking for…until they found it in each other.
Sounds so good, right? Well, it is! As part of Ripper’s blog tour, I have some lovely things for you today: an exclusive deleted scene (and it’s hot. Oh is it HOT), a podcast Ripper and I did about a month ago to discuss Catalysts, and a giveaway! So without any further lollygagging, let’s get to it!
(and please please please, realize this is so hot and NSFW that you need to use your discretion before going on)
