Review: Voyeur (Depravity #2) by M.J. Ferguson


Voyeur (Depravity, #2)


There is darkness in all of us even if we choose not to acknowledge it or act on it. What happens when a person not only acknowledges their darkness but revels in exploiting it to the fullest? Join me on a journey and explore the many different ways people choose to express their…Depravity.

In the second installment, we find two brothers Chris and Clint after a night out. Clint brings his latest conquest home much to the chagrin of Chris. He knows the evil his brother is capable of, but is too weak to stop him. Chris may be the older brother, but Clint is the one in complete control. Over the years under the guise of protecting him, Clint has systematically taken control of Chris’ life. Will Chris find the strength to break the hold his brother has over him consequences be damned, or will he forever remain a Voyeur of his own life?




Amazingly twisted. Just the kind of dark stull I’ve been looking for this days. It did have some parts that made me cringe, and that’s doesn’t happen often, but in general I really enjoyed this disturbing story.

It was very hard to feel any sympathy for the main characters, not even for Chris, who might be more likable for most readers, but that didn’t made me like it any less. I think the characters were well written, especially Clint who was such a disgusting human being, and yet I was very intrigued by his actions.

The plot was interesting, I loved the connection with the first book, but I guess I liked this one better. It had some elements that I really enjoy and where lacking in the previous one or weren’t as important as they were on this one, so it wasn’t a tough competition, this one is the winner for me.

A concern I have about this book is the lack of warnings in the blurb. I think they’re very important, so before reading, consider the warnings from book 1 relevant to this one too. This story contains content some readers may find objectionable like extreme violence, nonconsensual sex, and murder. If you are ok with that, then is definitely a great book.

Review: Delayed Gratification (Daniel and Ryan #1) by Tamryn Eradani

Delayed Gratification (Daniel and Ryan, #1)


Daniel Brown is a man of routine. You might even call him a control freak. So when the new Director of Marketing, Ryan Cole, starts shaking up Daniel’s routine, Daniel doesn’t know how to react. He finds Ryan intriguing, infuriating and oh so attractive, but he doesn’t mix business with pleasure. As their games start to grow kinkier, dare Daniel give in to his desire to let Ryan top him?




When I saw the title under the BDSM tag, I’ll admit I was expecting something a little different. I’m used to rougher ways to show such theme, but this was just amazing.

I loved it. It was so subtle and so much sexier that other representations of DBSM I’d read. I was very skeptical when they talk about dos and don’ts. I was wondering how things might work with so much limitations, but it worked beautifully.

The story had a slow pace that was appropriate while getting to know the main characters. It was so interesting to see how the personalities would connect. They both were really intriguing. What I enjoyed the most was the mind games. It made things so great and it showed how is not necessary to use a lot of instruments to make a great scene.

I also liked how the story didn’t try to force a relationship that clearly wasn’t there. There wasn’t too romantic but, for the time they knew each-other, I was very pleased about how the relationship is starting to develop. I know is only the first book from a series, which brings me joy, I’m so much contented with this characters. I’ll be reading the next books.

Review: Punishment (Depravity #1) by M.J. Ferguson

Punishment (Depravity, #1)


There is darkness in all of us even if we choose not to acknowledge it or act on it. What happens when a person not only acknowledges their darkness but revels in exploiting it to the fullest? Join me on a journey and explore the many different ways people choose to express their…Depravity.

In book one, we find a master who forces his pet to participate in a demonstration for a large audience of other masters. When he’s pushed too far will the master lose his pet? Or will the trust they have built be enough for the pet to accept his Sir’s darkest side.

Please note: This short erotic horror story is intended for mature audiences only. This story contains content some readers may find objectionable: explicit sex between men, extreme violence, nonconsensual sex, and murder.



This was great. This is a new author for me, I read a previous short story, apparently non-published, and I loved it and start looking for her books. I was pleasantly surprise when I realized this one had the same characters I loved from the story I read.

It is a BDSM story, but there are some extreme situations that are far from the consensual aspect of a D/s relationship. I liked the scene they shared, but it was what comes next what really intrigued me and got my attention. Definitely some morally questionable conducts, but since I already knew what I was getting into, it was great.

I would recommend to anyone interested in this short story, to read the warnings. I really liked it, but I’m into really dark book, so beware before reading.

Review: Seven Cuts by Sam Tepes

Seven Cuts


When you can’t see through the dark there are no rays of light.

For as long as Adam can remember he has been a cutter.
But the pain isn’t enough.
Is it time to get something more?

Trigger Warnings: Suicide, Self-Harm, Violence




I don’t know. It was just a no for me.

I’ve read another book from the author and I loved how twisted it was. This time, maybe the subject is just something I’m really not into.

I don’t know if the purpose was to create a sympathetic feeling towards Adam, but it just made the opposite for me. I felt extremely frustrated and enrage. I just couldn’t like him at all. Maybe it was just too real, because is this is not an unknown subject for me. Sure, the author made a great job getting some emotion from me, but maybe not the one that was being intended. Perhaps other readers would relate or care for Adam better than I did.

The book summary had some warnings, so beware before reading.

Review: A Love Like Blood by Victor Yates

A Love Like Blood

Half Somali and Cuban, 17-year old Carsten Tynes, deals with the intricacies of race, Americanism, syncretism, and sexuality under the abusive hand of his father in A Love Like Blood. Carsten’s camera is the thread that slowly unravels his relationship with his father and reveals the unseen world of men who move at night. When death pushes his boyfriend and father together into an abandoned camera store, he makes a dangerous move to save them.


I had a bit of a hard time getting myself into the story. I think it wasn’t the right book for me. I did enjoyed a lot of parts of it.

One of the things I liked the most, was the cultural background. It was something I’ve never read about and it was very interesting getting to know other people’s beliefs. There was a lot of hate against women, not display as physical violence, but the way men were criticized for of having any feature that was consider women-like, felt very relevant and extremely realistic. There was some other parts that showed, in a very subtle way, how important the man was for that culture. I noticed that when Carsten refer to his father, most of the times, the word father was written in capital letter. I don’t know if it was intended that way, but I felt like it was a way to give power to the name, something God-like, opposite to the mother’s figure that was absent for most of the book.

The writing was good, but I find the pace a little slow and that made it a little hard to read for me. One of the biggest problems I have with the book, was the fact that it was very difficult to connect with any emotions. There was a melancholic feeling the whole time, but other than that, I feel like there was an important lack of emotions in the characters.

I didn’t like Brett, I think he was unable to understand Carsten’s situation and I don’t think he even try. I didn’t felt like the romance part was an important part of the book, but I guess it was intended that way. I really didn’t mind, I wasn’t looking for romance here.

In general it was ok, I didn’t liked it that much, but I think a lot of reader would enjoy it. As I mention, the writing is really good.

Review: Ten in the Bin by N.R. Walker

Ten in the Bin


A short story, approx. 12.5K words.

Heartbroken, Dean Cartwright leaves Sydney and heads home, to the coastal town of Newcastle. In a bid to make new friends, he signs up for a local rugby league team where he meets a man known as Macca.

Dean and Macca are both front row forwards, meaning they’re the biggest guys on the team. Over six feet tall and over a hundred kilos each, they’re a force to be reckoned with on the field.

But when Dean gets knocked out, Macca gets even by punching the other guy, and both Dean and Macca end up on the sideline.

Dean soon realizes that being knocked unconscious is the best thing to ever happen to him.

Story is set in Australia, and uses Australian English




It was ok. I enjoyed it, but I don’t think it will be on my mind for a lot of time.
The characters were nice, but I simply didn’t felt too much emotions coming from either of them. It was more like a taking advantage of an opportunity more than real feelings between them and it made it difficult to really care for Dean and Macca as a couple.

I liked the sport part. I love sports but is a bit hard for me to enjoy books with such themes, maybe because I need them to be really accurate or because I don’t think about the players as romance heroes when I’m watching a sport, but this time I really liked it.

The plot wasn’t too complex, it was easy to enjoy. It can be easily like by most reader looking for a free of angst book. I might haven’t enjoyed it as much, but I’m intrigued by the author and I’ll be looking for more books.

Review: Fallocaust (Fallocaust #1) by Quil Carter

Fallocaust (Fallocaust, #1)


Over two hundred and thirty years ago the Fallocaust happened, killing almost everything that lived and creating what is now known as the greywastes. A dead wasteland where cannibalism is a necessity, death your reality, and life before the radiation nothing but pictures in dog-eared magazines.

Reaver is a greywaster, living in a small block controlled by a distant ruler said to have started the Fallocaust. He is a product of the savage world he was raised in and prides himself on being cold and cruel. Then someone new to his town catches his eye, someone different than everyone else. Without knowing why he starts to silently stalk him, unaware of where it will lead him.



I started reading it knowing I would like it. I was hook from the first pages. It was really interesting. A very dark book that I’m sure not everyone would appreciate, but I really enjoyed it. I can’t say I loved it, there were a few things that didn’t allow me to loved it, but I had a great time and I’ll surely be reading the next books in the series.

My favorite part about the book was Reaver. He had such a twisted mind. It was a delight to get inside of a sick mind like his. I enjoyed most of his disturbing actions as I enjoyed the few sweet moments he had. Even the times he mistreated Killian were a bit fun for me. I might have a little disturbed mind as he has, but I had a great time with that character.

On the other hand, Killian was hard to like, I would expect it to be different because he was a little sweet, but maybe too sweet. I don’t know if other readers liked him, but for me it was very hard. I didn’t hate him, but I think Reaver was so much better character than him.

Greyson and Leo were also great characters, I liked them both, but Greyson seemed a little more complex. I loved how each of them interact with Reaver. I had a great time with them too. Reno was also a character I enjoyed even though I didn’t get to know too much about him.

The plot was nice, there were something that I’m not sure about it, but in general terms was really interesting and I’m very intrigued of what will come next from them. I did had a little trouble with the length of it. I don’t like reading books that long because it took me too much time, but I never lost interest in the story, which was great, and I ended up reading it faster than I expect. I still would appreciate few less words.

Overall it was really good, I’ll start the next book as soon as possible. I would recommend to any reader to be cautious before reading because it had some possible triggering scenes, it is very aggressive and have some non-con situations.
