Fling-- A little BDSM anthology w/ Fawkes, Fox & Hawkeye

Ahhh a kinky fetish resort getaway filled with oh so sexy Doms and feisty women who accidentally ended up at the resort for the week and are surrounded by all sorts of kinkery goodness. Seriously. Where can I find a resort like this?! LOL Love it!

Fling is on the lighter side of BDSM and actually made me smile quite a bit because it was so much...simpler? than the ones I'm used to. It's not like Cherise Sinclair, Candace Blevins or Kallypso Masters. It's more, I don't really even know, contemporary romancified BDSM? Light, easy, more kinky fetish fun than lifestyle I guess.

I think this would be good for those wanting to venture into BDSM writing that isn't heavy or intense and just want a touch of kinky fun. And for those that love BDSM it's a fun little romp if you want something more beginner-ish. I had a good time with it and will be giving each of these ladies another read at some point.
Welcome to Fetish Week....

Unleash your kinky side with three tales of BDSM romance in an exclusive Mediterranean sex resort from three hot erotica writers, including New York Times bestselling author, Sara Fawkes.

TAKE ME by Sara Fawkes

The minute sexy hotel manager Alexander Stavros spots shy, sweet Kate Swansea at the Mancusi resort, he can tell she’s begging for release. This Dom is the perfect man to help her… if she’s willing to let go of her inhibitions and enjoy the ride.
Take Me was a nice easy read that was steamy and fun. I enjoyed Alexander and Kate. He's got some sexy going on and loves control. And Kate's a bit hurt and shy after a failed engagement but adventurous and a bit of an exhibitionist which Alexander loved bringing out in her. It was a nice mix and even though things move very quickly, whew boy do they-- there's a little good natured voyeurism going on and then BAM we're having sex in an alcove, I still enjoyed the steamy scenes and how things ended up with them.

There were some kinda predictable moments, a little too much reliance on people's hair color when indicating people (the redhead instead of names or using her) and a some issues I wish had been more fleshed out or even mentioned, like protection, but all in all it was a fun read that left me curious to see how Fawkes handles a full length story.
TEACH ME by Cathryn Fox

There’s nothing Luca Mancusi loves more than lingerie. So much so, he’s made it his business. Fashion design intern Josie Pelletier is supposed to be negotiating a deal with him, but as talks heat up, he can’t wait to teach her the ways of business…and BDSM.
So, yeah, in real life... Teach Me would so be a sexual harassment suit waiting to happen but on paper, yeah, it was pretty damn hot as designer Josie tries to get Luca to sign a contract with her fashion house to sell their lingerie and does whatever it takes. I really liked the writing in this one. It was well thought out, sexy, surprising and even though it moved a little quicker at the end than I was ready for it was a nice satisfying read.

Luca and Josie were both great characters. Very dedicated and loyal and had great chemistry. Things delve a little deeper between them with glimpses into his past and her present which I really liked. Josie was fairly naive but she's bold and sassy and pretty daring. The sex scenes were a little spicier than I was expecting with some nice exhibitionism and surprise, um, partners joining in. It was...good.
Luca narrowed his eyes and stared at her, watching the nervous way she kept avoiding his direct glance. "I don't have any fetishes."

His cock twitched with an excitement he hadn't felt in a very long time, and he was pretty damn certain he'd never been so eager to show a woman just how many fetishes she actually had.

TAME ME by Lauren Hawkeye
CEO Marco Kennedy can’t help being drawn to Ariel Monroe. When he follows the pop star abroad to the Mancusi resort, she agrees to a deal: He’ll win her as a sub through pleasure…or he’ll disappear from her life. Ariel’s game…just as long as she doesn’t lose her heart too.
Tame Me was my favorite of the trio and a lot had to do with the heroine who was a celebrity and being more or less hunted down by Marco. The two had a brief encounter where sparks flew and Marco knew he needed to get to know her better but oh she so wasn't making it easy on him at all and I loved her bratty spitfire attitude. Ariel had a nice bite to her that really worked well when meshed with Marco.

There were some nice steamy scenes that were pretty intense and were nicely done. I really liked Hawkeye's voice and how fleshed out she managed to make her novella.
