Talking Kink ‘n Seduction – Welcoming Growling Guru & Baby Boy

 

tumblr_n3z9tfbBG81rdkvxmo1_500

 

First and foremost, I would like to thank anyone who takes the time to read this post; I know time is precious, so I will try to be a succinct as possible.
My name is Baby Boy. I am a 29 year old male practicing submissive of the last 10 years to my lover-turned-husband/Dom, my Growling Guru. Why are we here? Well my bestie, Princess SO (twin and fellow author with Talon PS), approached us, asking us to contribute a weekly segment about sexuality and the Kink-related lifestyle and BDSM for her blog/website, and we are delighted to participate!

So I guess the most pertinent question to start is “What is BDSM?”

Denotatively, I could tell you that it is an acronym for a collection of sexual and non-sexual lifestyle or play preferences that include three separate categories of Bondage and domination, Dominance and submission, and Sadism and Masochism. Now, as I mentioned before, these things do not have to be sexual in nature to be prevalent in your life, though there are certainly a number of people who find it quite fun to explore these possibilities.

Bondage is exactly as it sounds: the physical aspect having at least one partner tied in some fashion, to the mutual satisfaction of all parties. There are many ways to bind someone using any and all manner of media (e.g., cotton or nylon rope, leather straps, chains, manacles, handcuffs, the list goes on and on) that depends entirely on your preference, practices, and experience level.

***safety aspect(s): Always check multiple times for adequate blood flow of anyone tied; when the binding is first done and periodically throughout your scene until it is time to remove the ropes. Keep Scissors on hand for emergency removal of ropes. NEVER leave someone bound and unattended for ANY length of time. ***

 

 

 

10705304_324589111035537_1130191557_n

 

 

 

Domination and submission (D/s) : When someone feels emotional and/or sexual gratification from a consensual exchange of power dynamic, they are said to be Dominant or Submissive, depending on their preference to take or give power, respectively. Within this category there are several subclasses, such as Alpha Subs, Omegas, Little Boys/Girls, Slaves, Betas, and in a class all their own are Switches! All of these, I will go into great detail on in a separate article, or we’d be here all night.

*** Consent is key. Without freely given consent from ALL PARTIES, your relationship is abusive mentally, emotionally and possibly physically.***

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

10714814_324589201035528_318915012_nSadism and Masochism (S/M): Once again, I cannot stress enough the point of mutual CONSENT and EXPERIENCE that is required. This is the part of the lifestyle that pertains to the sexual gratification from giving and receiving pain. Do you like a little (or big) bite here and there? How about swift spanking? Does the sting of a leather flogger haunt your dreams? What about a six-foot long bullwhip snapped across your back and around your torso? Or your partners flesh twitching with anticipation as they wonder where the next blow will strike?

*** S/M is completely independent of D/s, and can be combined in any way or not at all. ***

 

Now this is just an overview of what can be included under the umbrella term “Kink” or “BDSM.” Some people even identify Kink as their primary sexual orientation, meaning they are not necessarily attracted to gender, but are attracted to the complementary type of person in their lifestyle.  One of the truly beautiful aspects of this Lifestyle is that you are allowed and encouraged to do only the things you enjoy and desire, and no one can tell you you are wrong for it. The only thing this lifestyle requires is to be SSC (Safe, Sane, Consensual) sometimes called RACK (Risk-Aware/Accepted Consensual Kink.) In case you hadn’t noticed, Consent of a willing adult is the only real line in the sand.

 

 

 

On a personal note, I identify as a Bisexual Switch. This means I like men and women in and outside of kink, and I am willing and able to Dominate or submit to my lover as we both agree. To my husband, I am only submissive because he is only Dominant. However he does on occasion (and with my permission) share me sexually with other(s) and it is with them that I may indulge my dominant or heterosexual-esque desires, if I so choose.

 

If you are interested to learn more about the Kinky people in your area, talk to the cashier or manager at your local adult store (or Kink store, if you have one) and ask if they know of any Munches happening, or anything of the sort. Meetups.com is also a good online source to find them in your local area. Keep in mind, a Munch is a gathering of like-minded kinky people to talk and enjoy their lifestyle without judgment. It can happen at a public place or a private residence, and as long as you have an open mind, most are willing to help you learn and grow.

 

I think I have talked your ear off enough for one day, but please any questions of comments, feel free to leave below and we will answer post-haste!

TO BE OR NOT TO BE A SERIES…

Two writers rambling banner w logo

TO BE OR NOT TO BE A SERIES…

And in essence that is the question as well. What is a series? I’ve decided to pose this question to be pondered over because of the frequency of remarks I often see in reviews left by readers (for our own series but have also seen the same comments left towards others)

In the literary book world, Series refers to a set of books telling of an ongoing story that is tied together in varying degrees of sequence, continuity and succession. (See bottom for Random House Dictionary listing)

 to be or not to be a series

 

A series in the book world is more than just a set or a collection (though an author may release those as well), a series standardly holds a continuity of story &/or character content as it evolves. Even if the author tries to have each book capable of being read as a standalone, there are always going to be elements in it that will have started from a previous book, or will be resolved in a later book.

tumblr_mzk4ekpqE91s85u2fo1_500

This includes sharing of scenes, where as a particular scene is revisited but told from another perspective without having to copy the entire scene verse for verse, because a series isn’t trying to retell the exact story over and over. Authors will usually try to paraphrase substantial supporting characters as best they can to explain why or who they are in the overall scheme of things, but if you feel there are some missing elements it’s safe to say those are in one of the other books in the series. It is after all the purpose of the series.

 

gif_ednorton

But I must chuckle that on the occasion when I feel like making my eyes twitch, I browse the garden of reviews, and the comments I often find…. perplexedly,  I’m left wondering…. did they forget it’s a series?

 

 

 

 

 

To give you some examples I’ll share; (paraphrasing of course):

why-she-might-be-upset-part-1

“… gawd I hate it when there are secondary characters that don’t seem to be relevant. It makes for too many unresolved loose ends.”

 “Just a reminder, it’s a series.”

 

 “I hate this book because it didn’t have an ending, but continues…”

“Must have missed the part about it being a series.”

HEA

Not happening yet… Not until the end of the Series…

Hell-Fight-For-You

“I loved the sexual aspect, but at the end of the day I was left wanting more… story.”

“Buy the other book. This one was already at 300k words. Had to start a new book.”

 200_s (3)

 

“OMG, I hate cliff hangers!”

“dun dun DUHN!”

 u-mad-bro-gif

“The MC in this didn’t really do it for me, I think the book should have focused more on the two supportive characters instead.”

“Buy their book next.”

 

“God, I hate it when I read a book from a series and the next one isn’t out already.”

“Yes, we authors purposely write slow and only one at a time. When we could so

do the whole series in one sitting and in our sleep”

 

Of course we understand that last sentiment rather well.

19262ip4i7t6ggif

We’re readers too, and chances are there’s a series out there we are waiting on the next release. But down times are not a new thing, Jean Auel fans waited 10 years, twice, for the last two books to come out in the Earth Children series. It happens, we’re humans too, (see: Fun useless faqs you never knew)  

impatient3

Of course some readers handle the wait better than others.

 iq9ggRe                      of course some handle it better than others

So before you go loading up the assault rifle because the latest book left some content and characters to be explored in the next book in the series, stop and remind yourself….

giphy

 

It’s a series… it supposed to have all those great awesome loose ends and side characters to pique your interest. After all we really want you to buy the other book.

Dr-House-you-are-good

So go ahead… buy the other book… you know you want to…

gp ahead and read it-you know you want to

Next one isn’t out yet? Well, Gosh Darn… guess you’ll have to wait.

ABOUT THESE AUTHORS

Princess so and her twin, Talon ps love to torment their editor with a nefarious world of foreign-lang, slang, local dialect, stretched/outside-of-the-box definitions, and have even been known to throw in some con-lang at times. This, of course, is all thrown in there with the dyslexia soup stock they both suffer from that makes editing with them a joy {joy: n see mental illness}.

Gua16318_1541640016069208_117017552552044658_nrds of Folsom: Book Two


Following the death of their sub, the former owners of the Guards of Folsom, Robert “Bobby” Alcott and Rig Beckworth, were left to pick up the pieces as best they could. After seven years, these two Doms are ready to move on and find the boy who will complete them. Their painful past comes crashing back when they meet Mason Howard, a submissive who just weeks ago lost his Doms in a car accident.

Reeling from overwhelming grief that’s complicated by a severe social anxiety disorder, Mason can barely leave his home. When Rig and Bobby find him, he’s hit rock bottom, believing life is no longer worth living. Bobby and Rig set out to prove the younger man wrong. Fate has brought the three men together, but they’ll have to face the pain of fear and loss head-on before they can all truly live again.

So, what didn’t I like about this book?…

Okay now, what did I like about this book?   Absolutely.  Everything.  

It gets more and more difficult to come up with new words and feelings and phrases for stories and characters and worlds that you love.   Without sounding…trite, at least.   But dayum if this series doesn’t just warm the cockles of my jaded little heart a bit more, every single time I read.

So, in order of occurrence but certainly not importance:

I cried for Mason.   Not sweet, movie-star tears mind you.  I ugly-cried.  Heaving sobs and running nose and the whole nine yards.  Most unattractive…

I was overjoyed that Rig and Bobby were not fresh-faced young bucks, but rather men of a certain age, who still lived big and loved large and had grabbed life by the short hairs despite some debilitating life-events of their own to deal with.   I am ecstatic when a writer recognizes us old farts not only have feelings, but act on them too.  With gusto!

I got that warm-fuzzy when other characters from Folsom came to visit and provided that stabilizing sanity a person is only good at when the life that’s happening isn’t happening to them.

I am in love with these men and their trials, tribulations and utter intestinal fortitude. 

I am in awe of an author with the gift of heart and soul and compassion, and one who also has the gift of true storytelling. 

I am pleased to heartily recommend this book…and series…and I’m most insistent that you go start it.   Right now.   Because I know The Guards of Folsom…

While much of the US is feeling the chill from the polar vortex, down here in Florida with the twins, its still sweltering hot.

So of course we gotta kick it up a notch to see if we can send that polar thing packing.

BHS 500x700Dominion of Brothers series – Book One Trenton Leos isn’t just another Master of Doms; he’s referred to as Dominus. The Master of them all. Known internationally for his skill with a cane and for serving up the most delectably trained slaves for the Masters who love to possess them. As Dominus, he has everything he could want out of life except one, his own personal slave. Waiting until he finds the one perfect unicorn for the ultimate surrender— their life to his dominant control. When a friend introduces him to her newest star writer, he’s certain he’s found his Life Slave. But as he starts to obsess over the nervously petite woman, he soon realizes she can’t surrender a lifetime of control she does not possess. So he must make the first sacrifice— by letting her go.

Katianna Dumas, a writer of erotic romance is no stranger to the allure of eroticism and Trenton Leos is probably the sexiest lure she’s ever fantasized about. There’s just one problem, she doesn’t play his game. For four years Katianna has known the Dominus as little more than the man who‘d given her the chance to stand on her own for once, as a friend he kept his distance. Close enough to tease the senses, but not enough to tease his bed, though she likes it when he looks her way. After a mishap at Club Pain, Katianna finds herself in the protective custody of Trenton Leos for the night and everything changes for the two of them. Katianna can’t remember what secret desires she exposed, but now the Dominus is demanding to court her for the ultimate submission— to become his Slave for life. Life with Trenton promises to surround her with rich, somatic passions, but it also comes with dangers and she’s not sure she’s strong enough to hang on, or bear to be let go if she fails to keep up with his desires that constantly overwhelm her.

 You know that book that for some unknown reason you are saving to read? Becoming His Slave was that book for me and to this day I am still kicking myself for waiting so long to turn the first page of this story. Needless to say I have read it more than once and each time I discover something new but the one thing that stays the same is my love for this story and the characters it brings to life. I will mention there are a few editing problems but if you read for the story they do not take away from it in any way.

  Talon has given us not just a novel to begin the Dominion of Brothers series but a Super Novel. When you hear the words super novel you may be thinking you’re going to get a book that is five or six hundred pages. You will be pleased to find out this story is close to eight hundred pages and you are going to be torn in your choice to either savor them or devour them. I chose to savor them over four days and each night I dreamed of unicorns. Just like Trenton Leos aka The Dominus, the alpha Dom of the New York BDSM circuit. He has played with and trained many slaves, but he has never claimed one. He is waiting for that one slave that will surrender all of herself to him, to become his life slave. Or as Diesel Gentry, one of Trenton’s brothers in arms, business and dark desires calls her, his Unicorn.

 I will admit the first book mark I put in this story was one that had me grinning from ear to ear. It was when Katianna and Trenton were talking about her writing. She is an author who writes romance, not just romance but erotic romance. Trenton asked her how her writing could be of interest to Vashon. Vashon is a clothing designer who as Trenton puts it “is as gay as they come.” Katianna’s response was music to my ears. Her response to Trenton is almost the exact same response I give to people who ask me “How can you read those books? Romance is one thing we all love but those erotic stories and all the BDSM stuff.” Then they give you that look, you know the one. Then I tell them, as Kat told Trenton, “There is more than just sex in these stories.”

 A good story like this one will also give you a look at this lifestyle like it is supposed to be. Not distorted to give a movie or TV show higher ratings and not like a story on your local news channel. If you read the story for the story you may find some things that surprise you but you may also find a treasure you would have missed because of the tag “erotic or BDSM”.

 One of the things I found particularly great about this story is how Talon gave us two main characters, Trenton Leos and Katianna Dumas, but also some very strong and captivating secondary characters. He even allowed some of the secondary characters take center stage and become main characters for a brief moment in time. The artistry Talon used to do this enhances Trenton and Katianna’s story and also sets up other stories for this series.

 There are three stories of this series already published. Becoming His Slave –book one, A Place for Cliff – book 2 and Rough Attraction – book 3. You don’t have to read them in order because each story can stand on its own but I would suggest you read Becoming His Slave first.

10389089_642195395888578_6581674152201553968_nDetective Cashel ‘Cash’ Godfrey is big, tattooed and angry so people typically keep their distance. He’s fresh out of the police academy, however, no one is looking to partner with the six foot four beast with a huge chip on his shoulder and an inability to trust. When Cash scans the orientation room he wasn’t expecting to find sexy hazel eyes locked onto him. Eyes of the handsome Detective Leonidis ‘Leo’ Day.

Leo is charming, witty, hilariously sarcastic and the only one that can make Cash smile. He’s proud, out and one bad-ass detective.

Together Cash and Leo become the most revered and successful narcotics detectives Atlanta’s ever seen. Able to communicate and understand each other, without even having to voice it, they quickly climb up the promotional ranks.

When Cash saves Leo’s life in a raid that turns deadly, Leo begins to see something in the big man that no one else does…something special. But Leo fears he’ll never break through the impenetrable wall that protects Cash’s heart.

Nothing Special takes the reader through various emotions throughout the richly fulfilling plot that’s full of erotic gay romance, heartache, passion, trials and tribulations, police action scenes, and an intriguing twist that comes to an amazing ending that’s impossible to see coming.

You know how sometimes you read a story and fall in love not only with the main characters but some of the secondary characters. Well while I was reading Embracing His Syn by A. E. Via this happened. I fell for Lieutenants Godfrey and Day. Fortunately for me they also have a story, Nothing Special.  These books do share some characters but they are not a series as I originally thought, so you can read them in any order.

 In the prologue it is a little confusing figuring out the rank of our characters but when the story begins it is set. Our main characters Cashel Godfrey (Cash or God as some call him) and Leonidis Day (Leo) are now Detectives for the Atlanta Police Departments Task Force. There are a few typos but they didn’t take anything from the story for me. There may be a couple spoilers in this review but if you have already read Embracing His Syn you already know a little about the main characters in this story.

 I loved the take A. E. Via took with Leo. Not only is he out and proud, but only one of the other Detectives seems to have a problem with it. There was no hiding of or shame associated with his sexuality in this group of alpha personalities. I enjoyed Leo so much and the relationship he has with his brother Jax is just the icing on the cake. Leo’s relationship with Cash aka God on duty and the developing relationship off duty just turn this cake into one of those decadent molten chocolate lava cakes. Yummmmm Ha ha ha and yes Leo can cook but that is another story *wink*

 Cash *sighs* larger than life bad ass with a heart of gold and a troubled soul. Cash has one of those tragic childhoods which make this part of his story totally heartbreaking. It has nothing to do with his sexuality but with the abuse he suffered at the hands of his stepfather. Although the baggage this event causes Cash to carry and continue to pay for financially and emotionally is enormous you would never know because of the way he carries and conducts himself. His work family would do anything for him as he would for them. You will get a good picture of this with one of his interactions with the SWAT team. LOL This is one of the reasons I love fiction so much. A good author can take standard operating procedure and toss it in the waste basket to give a scene just the right twist to show a part of their characters personality and worth to those around them. Maybe this is also done to show Cash his worth as well.

 Well that is enough of the spoilers for this story. I can tell you I totally loved Cash and Leo. I enjoyed the banter of the men and women of the Atlanta PD as well as the other characters. You may even come to love the characters you may want to head slap and there are a few of those! So give yourself a good block of time because you are not going to want to put this story down until you have finished it.

 A. E. Via has given us some great stories and characters who will steal your heart and a couple you just want to head slap! LOL I do believe she is also going to become one of those authors you will just one click when she releases a new book.

DOMMING THE HEIRESS MASTERCOPY

Domming the Heiress

Dominion of Brothers Series: Book 1.5

Written by Talon p.s.  &  Princess S.O.

MF / BDSM – D/s / Erotic Romance

“You can’t depend on your eyes, when your desire is out of focus.”

Heiress Amelia Quinneth had always been known for topping from the bottom. Being CEO and owner of the family fortune and firm makes letting go of control more than just complicated. Nevertheless, submission is the one thing she desires most at the end of the day and no amount of control over her life can get her to that unobtainable bliss. That is until frustrated by lack of satisfaction; she finally reached out to Dominus Trenton Leos to be paired up with a Dom that could take charge and satisfy her needs.

However despite her request, she never expected she would have to meet her new Dom, while remaining blindfolded for the next thirty-six hours with him.

Amelia’s Dom turns out to be a Head-Master who quickly shows her who is in charge and strips away every layer of hers, one by one, until she found the true euphoria that comes from understanding her surrender.

Her very walls that she kept to define her fantasies have been torn down, but in order to find out who her new Master is, there is one more wall she must let go of and she’s not sure she can.

916d5NQC5iL._SL1500_On the run, branded a traitor by her government, Fay Avalon has to depend on three brothers for shelter. Sinful Surrender is Book 1 of Houston Havens’ new romance series, Psychic Ménage. Why be tempted by one man’s seduction when you can be loved by three?

Top psychic spy Fay Avalon saw too much on her latest mind-traveling mission and is now on the run from her post-catastrophic dystopian government, searching for the truth and proof. She escapes but is shot down, landing in the arms of the enemy.

In Drakker and Arlo’s world, women are so rare the men have accepted a polyandrous lifestyle. When the brothers stumble upon Fay unconscious in the wreckage of an aircraft, they are immediately attracted to her. Arlo wants to keep her, but Drakker knows they can’t. They must take her to their brother Logan Abán, leader of their people.

Logan struggles with trusting anyone, even himself. When a beautiful, intelligent, and intriguing woman falls into their laps, his denied desires for intimacy challenge his need to trust the spy. He’s frustrated by romantic Arlo’s claims of her innocence. When pragmatic and dominating Drakker defends her as well, Logan refuses to trust his gut.

Can one woman satisfy the diverse desires of three men? Will Logan’s fears be realized by betrayal? Is Fay to be sentenced to death as a spy, suffer a fate worse than death by being returned to her government as a traitor, or will she find a new life and love as the wife of three sexy brothers?

Content: Hot, D/S Elements, Anal Play, Anal Intercourse, Ménage, Polyamory, Voyeurism, Light BDSM.

Sometimes when I see the word “Dystopian” to describe a story, I expect a ponderous story that weighs me down and is anything but an escape.    While the setting of this story is a post-apocalyptic world or worlds, it reads more like a Sci-Fi/Fantasy-slash-erotic romance.   Pure, perfect escape, as genres go.

 

It’s a hot read that also begins to develop what will be a series, and starts with this introduction to these worlds born of a natural catastrophe, and combined with a corrupt elite of the original world.   The special talents or powers of the inhabitants of the various worlds, as well as their technologies, was both intriguing and entertaining.  

 

As the irascible and yet lovable rebels of the suppressed Airborne world, brothers Arlo, Drakker and Logan spanned the spectrum of character-type.  Arlo was the sensitive brother, Drakker the darker, kinkier brother and Logan was the untrusting Alpha rebel as well as brother, and with a shortage of women in their world, they would hope to form a polyandrous relationship when the time and opportunity presented itself…

 

…Enter Fay.   A spy with some serious covert skills, she was a strong and likable character whose abilities gave her insight into the misdeeds of her Dirt Dweller Government and the resulting suppression of the Airborne race.  She literally lands in the lap of two of the three brothers, mistrusted by the third, and interrogated into oblivion…or some other O-word…by one of them. She reveals herself as a converted spy and then life is all about furthering the plans of the rebel Airborne citizens against the nefarious plans of the Dirt Dwellers.

 

I liked the sci-fi story.  It was imaginative and engaging and plausible as sci-fi goes.  I liked Fay, until she collapsed in on herself and without giving away the cause, the reaction seemed all out of proportion.   It kind of pulled me out of the story.

 

In similar fashion, and I’m not used to saying this: so did the sex.   Initially it was in keeping with the flow of the storyline.  Ultimately I found some interludes to be superfluous, actually disrupting the tide of the story.

 

Still in-all, it has a great feel to it.  I can foresee a continuation of the tale in a worthy series, with some pretty enjoyable secondary characters stepping up to the plate.
