Hard Core by Madison Faye

My edition: Kindle Unlimited
Pages: 166
Series: Dirty Bad Things #1
Genre: Smut, Military Hero
Rating: 3 stars

Synopsis:

She’s sweet, pure, and untouched, and she’s about to lose her innocence on camera. To me.

Trust me, I’m no porn star, even if I do have the equipment of one. But when the Moretti crime family comes calling to collect on a debt I owe, they want it in trade.

You see, there’s big money in dirty movies, and the more real the better. Me? I’m already filthy, damaged goods from my time in Afghanistan.

But then I meet Rose, my”so-star”, and my whole world shatters.

She owes the Moretti’s too, but she’s too good for all of this. Too sweet, too beautiful-too innocent for this shit. And I’ll be damned if I let them steal that away from her.

It’s wrong that she’s here, but it’s also wrong that she wants me to “teach her” things. It’s worse that I want to.

But one taste of her lips, and I’m hooked. One touch of her soft skin, and I know Rose is going to be mine. Not the camera’s. Mine.

The virgin with the debt, the ex-marine with the dick, and a porno for the mob.

Welcome to Vegas, baby.

Review:

I think Madison Faye is going to be up on my top list of smut authors. I did like this, I didn’t love it. The story line was excellent but the characters lacked something for me.

It was the hero. He came off as bland. Like any other hero in books. Nothing stood out to me about him.

While the mob story line kept me wanting more, the couple didn’t. I will read the next one because it came to me as an ARC. I know I am reading it late. Unfortunately I am reading a lot of ARCs late. I need to catch up.

Bedlam Butchers MC by Ruby Dixon

Since these novellas are short I am reviewing them all in one.

Review:

We get introduced to the Bedlam Butchers through Lucky. Lucky is the little sister to Gemini who is the president of the Bedlam Butchers. A rival club is out to get Lucky but Solo won’t let that happen. The Bedlam Butchers are known for doing everything in pairs. Solo’s partner died fighting the war in Iraq. He hasn’t chosen a partner just yet which has earned him the name Solo. Lucky earned her name due to her being unlucky. Their really names are Penny and Eric.

Unlike a few other Dixon books I’ve read, this one doesn’t have a dual P.O.V. It’s all from the girl. I didn’t get this one a lot. Mostly due to the main guy’s name being Eric and that is my dad’s name so major turn off. Other than that the plot was okay and the sex scenes were good.

Review:

For those who know me, know I like to read about menage. As stated above the Bedlam Butchers do everything in pairs. Gemini, Domino, and Kitty were in the first book. This is their story and how they got to where they are. Kitty works at Chrome. That up and coming Friday night is a pantie raid at Chrome. Gemini and Domino find Kitty there and decide that they want to keep her.

This was so hot. I loved it. Gemini and Domino are a great pair. Kitty was kind of not my favorite but not a horrible character. On to the next book.

Review:

Shy’s brother is Taco. He’s a Bedlam Butcher. Shy is extremely afraid of him. When she hears of the pantie raid, she decides she needs to find someone big and scary for protection. When she walks into Chrome looking for someone, she sees Beast. Beast is also a Bedlam Butcher. His one ride partner is Muscle. At first Muscle said no but Beast with the help of Shy brought him around.┬áTaco doesn’t like that Shy has the protection. He makes that very clear. Beast and Muscle make it very clear they are not giving up Shy without a fight.

I liked this one. Mostly due to Beast. He hits my list of attractive guys. One to the next one.

This is the last installment of Shy, Muscle and Beast. It was good. I liked it. The characters really have come a way. I wish there was more to this group but it ended perfectly.

Barbarian Alien by Ruby Dixon

My Edition: Kindle Unlimited

Pages:211

Series: Ice Plant Barbarians #2

Rating: 2.5 smutty stars

Review: As much as I loved Raahosh I didn’t full like Liz. I thought I was but she wasn’t as funny as in the first book. The reason I love Raahosh is because I love a scarred MC. Not only that but the way he dealt with Liz is hilarious. For the first couple days or week he doesn’t talk to her. He just lets her talk to herself.

Now unlike the first book this one really didn’t have a plot. Just a lot of alien sex and fighting over if Liz can go hunting. I did get a good laugh when a baby furry alien came up on Liz and she called it an Ewok. Don’t know why I got a kick out of it but I did.

I like the little references to Star Wars. In both books Dixon has several references to the famous sci-fi movies. The good ones though. The original trilogy that came out before I was born or even thought of.

I will give the third book a read. If it doesn’t have much of a plot I don’t know if I will continue reading this series.
