     First I have to mention that I gave this book 3 stars because it was in 1st person POV and I don't like that POV much.

     Now that that is clear I have to say that it was a good book. We have Seth the tattoo artist that has always being skittish around religious people-specifically Christians-because of his past. But when Darren-a Christian minister-moves to the apartment across from his his resolve to steer clear of those kind of people will be tested.

     As he is constantly interacting with Darren he will see that not all people are the same and he will have to make a choice to oversee this minor-or huge depending on your view of it-detail of Darren's life in order to find happiness or regret his choice for the rest of his days.

     As I said it was a good book in this series and I can't wait to read more.

Review: Make Me, Sir by Cherise Sinclair

Rating: 5 Stars




     This time is Master Marcus'. After a bad divorce he has swear off sassy subs, but when he is entrusted with Gabrielle he might change his mind. He can figure out why Gabi acts so rebellious when he knows (as all good Doms are wont to find out) that she really doesn't want to act this way. To find out he'll employ the only thing he thinks might get him the answers he seeks. But how much will this little act will cost him?

     When Gabi is discovered by the Masters of the Shadowlands to be a decoy for the FBI in a case she is furious with Marcus for abusing her trust and make her confess when she was must vulnerable. For it to keep going he'll have to grovel to her but she might not be so willing to listen. But really what good sub can resist the command from a Dom. When all is said and done and Gabi returns to the club it might be for the last time.

     After being kidnap along with Jessica (Master Z's sub) this two will show their captors what really means to be a sassy sub.

     It is very inspiring when we get to witness people who have being victims in any way be the best person for it and dedicate their life to help other people who have being by the same (or in this case read about it (even if it's fantasy as for me every fantasy comes from a kernel of truth))

     Now I'm off to read the next one and hope that Master Raoul, latino extraordinaire (what I'm latina so I'm permitted to gloat!! lol), keeps me up at night as have all the other Masters! ^_^

     There are so many great aspects to this book. We have Hayleewho is a singer to the band Three of Hearts—who is going through a rough time when she discovers her boyfriend of six months is seeing another singer who is the girly-girl type unlike her tom-boy self. She then suggest her two band-mates, Ben and Luke, have a threesome with her and after the fact things get a little tense and awkward for them all.

     It is up to all of them to figure what is wrong and how to fix it but Haylee is the one who takes the initiative but there are some misunderstandings and with Haylee's low-esteem and Luke and Ben's inability to explain things everything goes south.

     There are some heart-warming and heart-wrenching moments that made me teary-eyed and some that just pissed me off. I recommend this book to anyone who likes the genre. I didn't give it 5 stars just cause it's in first person POV and I don't like that POV. And I like multiple character's POVs with me reading. But besides that it is a really great read.

     I have read books about slavery and human trafficking but this is a different story. We still have drugs and no real consent but there is a difference in this drugs. This drug lowers the women's inhibitions making them slaves to their sexual desires and willing to do anything or be with anyone to quench their appetites.

     Julianna is the daughter of a very rich and powerful man. She is kidnapped from her house by the men of a man who's been obsessed with her since he saw her at a dinner party her dad threw. He has been planing for her capture for years and when the time came he made his move to acquire her.

     She is taken to a facility to be trained to be the perfect woman for Nick without braking her into a mindless, spineless robot. There she captures the attention of Travis, her trainer. He tries to keep it impersonal but he feels things he hasn't with any other woman and he's helpless to resist her charms.

     Julianna takes every opportunity to thwart their plans to turn her into a sexual nympho and retain her ability to make her own choices. She is successful, but at what cost?

     The story and characters are well developed, there is a lot of things going on in a short amount of time (the book develops mostly in just one week) and although it leaves you with many questions of what's to come it also leaves you satisfied with what is already been revealed.

     The only reason this book is not a 5 Stars for me is that it's in first person POV and I just HATE that POV.

     Wow, what a story. This is really something different and it really shows us what it is for patients of Epidermolysis Bullosa to deal with insensitive and cruel people that don't really understand what their going through.

     The story is about Bastian—a reclusive photographer who has EB—and Julie—a woman who is still trying to find her calling in life. Julie is really attracted to Bastian but he is rude to her when they meet at an art gallery for Julie's friend Isabelle's expo. He makes it clear on several occasions that he doesn't want anything with her but it was more because he is afraid than anything else.

     But it's not going to happen as fate throws them together again the next day when Bastian has to photograph some antiques for Julie's mother. After two days of photographing Bastian is somewhat relax around Julie and things go on from there.

     It was really sad to see Bastian struggle with accepting himself and realizing that there was really nothing wrong with him. That there are just idiotic people in the world that don't deal well with what they don't understand.

     I would like to read a story about Luke, Elena and Isabelle. They were really interesting characters.

Thanks and have a great day!
