Club Alpha isn't a place--it's a state of mind you're going to want to visit again and again!

Club Soria by Emilia Kincade - Maya's life is falling apart. She runs away to Thailand to find some peace. When she is invited to Club Soria, she doesn't know what to expect. Her 'awakening' catches her entirely by surprise!

The Sybian Club by Selena Kitt - Tasha convinces husband, Max, to buy a Sybian, starting a club to pay for it. Friend Ashley helps but Tasha doesn't know how to tell Max she wants to add more to their sex life than just a new toy.

His Desire, her Surrender by Malia Mallory - When Marcus tracks Tabitha down to resume the sizzling affair they began in the islands, can Tabitha prove that she has what it takes to be both his partner and his submissive?

Escape by PJ Adams - Just who is the masked stranger at Club Extraordinaire and what is it that draws Julie so powerfully? Is it the way he's so confident and masterful? Or is it that he reminds her so strongly of her ex?

Pavlov by Arden Aoide - Tyrone Parker had obstinacy down to an art and was the reigning champion of Having the Last Word. He had his own definition of Domination that had women running away fast. Until the one that stayed.

Control: Masters of the Sanctuary by Elsa Day - When Amy sneaks into the sanctuary, she has no idea what she's in for. She runs into trouble, and Master J is the only one who can help her. But his health comes with a price: her total submission.

At the Billionaire's Command by Juliette Jaye - Recent small town transplant to New York City Sophie never expects to hook up with the billionaire boss of her company. But the even bigger surprise is when she finds herself falling in love with him.

Rough Edges by Adriana Hunter - I didn't expect to wake up, unable to move. When he told me that I was a player in his wicked game I knew I had made a mistake. I didn't ask for this. I didn't want it. At least not in the beginning.

Club Red by Sophie Sawyer - When curvy beauty Tori visits Club Red for no-strings fun, the last thing she expects is to find everything she ever wanted!

Precious Pet by Candy Quinn - What started as a way to make some extra money ended with a demi-god opening college student Rachael's mind to the bliss and freedom of submission.

~ My Reviews ~ 3.5 star up to 5 stars ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Claiming His Tease (Club Rack and Ruin #1) by Amy Valenti
Talk about patience! Josh's is amazing as he waits for months to claim Lena. This book is about biding your time to win the ultimate prize and the build up is so titillating you can't wait till she gives in to the master. 4 star

Breaking Boundries by Sienna Stapleton
This is an eye opening story of Sara who feels fat and repressed and Adam who loves her but doesn't want to live a life with boring one position sex. This book breaks a novice person who is curious about other ways to make love in to other forms of lovemaking in a very enjoyable learning experience. It leaves you with a feeling of "I want to do this!" 4 star

The Billionaire's Club: Deceiving Him by Terry Towers
Reporter, Lexie, needs the story of a lifetime to kick off her career so she sneaks into the Billionaire's Club. Lexie tries to pass herself off as a sub who's into it all. Very far fetched but Vince the Dom knows and doesn't care at first. A great short novella that has a lesson for both Lexie and Vince as they learn something new about themselves. 4 star

Club Soria by Emilia Kincade
Maya gets rid of a cheating boyfriend and ends up with a mysterious billionaire man named Javier in Thailand. Very unusual story with some intrigue and a unusual ending. Enjoyable but could of had a little more substance to the plot. 3.5 star

The Sybian Club by Selena Kitt
Max and his wife Tasha buy a Sybian toy and decided to spread the joy. This story has a 5 star heat factor and should not be read in public because it is so hot. It is a very descriptive read leaving nothing to the imagination because you feel like you are in the story.  Because of the heat factor and how engrossed you get in the reading this is a 4 star

His Desire, Her Surrender by Malia Mallory
Marcus drove me a little crazy in the 1st chapter just thinking he could walk in and everything would be okay after all that time apart.  Tabitha I liked her gutsy attitude but when she went into her insecurity mode I could feel myself saying no way girl get back in there. The BDSM scenes where hot but I would of liked a little more plot. I loved the HEA I give this 3.5 stars and look forward to the next book in the series.

Escape by PJ Adams
Wow just wow. I loved this very unusual erotic story that focuses on two sisters having conversations about Julie's life since her boyfriend left. It had heat factor and a storyline that kept me entranced till the very end. I give it 5 stars and am already looking for more books by this author.

Pavlov Club Dishabille Redux by Arden Aoide
Very different point of view from a lost Dom's perspective. I was intrigued with where the story was going and I really felt the ending was done in a believable manner. I give it 3.5 stars

Control: Masters of the Sanctuary by Elsa Day
I have read this story before and I liked it even more the second time around. It starts out as a cutesy story about Amy trying to get a story on a local BDSM place to keep her job. So she researches what they may be doing there, gets herself invited to it and well you can guess what happened next. But from that point the story gets very good as the author does an outstanding job of changing up the story keeping you reading and seeing a well planned lesson for Amy from Master J that is extremely erotic and engaging. I give it 5 stars.

At The Billionare's Command by Julliette Jaye
Sophie takes charge of her life and goes to college and moves to New York City. Once there she works hard and takes a risky chance that changes her life. Alex, the billionaire, comes across as standoffish and reserved but he really turns out to be caring and thoughtful as the story progresses. I give this book 4 stars.

Rough Edges by Adriana Hunter & Catherine Cross
Hats off to a strong women who takes rejection from a lover and opens herself to a new experience with a stranger. The authors work through a breakup similar to one most of us have been through. Your not pretty enough, your too fat, your boring in bed...... They do a great job of empowering Scarlett to not listen to her ex and I love how strong they have her in standing up to Wesley. I give this book 4 stars.

Club Red by Sophie Sawyer
Gaius really drew me in with how he carried himself so assuredly and that he was willing to wait for the right sub. What further sealed the deal was how the author also showed him being vulnerable as well. Who can resist a man that well rounded. Tori is portrayed as a BBW with issues about her weight and past bad relationships but the author also presented a women not willing to be what others kept telling her she was or as a victim. This story is entertaining and I give it 4 stars.

Precious Pet by Candy Quinn

I use the word intriguing too often but that is the one word that describes this story. Though I don't usually enjoy reading erotica from a young person perspective this was well written and I got so wrapped up in the story that it took my poor husband a while to get my attention. The ending seemed abrupt and I felt unfinished, wanting more. Also I don't know if it was intentional but there was nothing at the end that referenced anything about where to find the author. I feel this is a mistake and should be corrected. I do give it 5 stars.
