I'm so excited to share my twisted peeps with the world! This hot and streamy read features a girl who doesn't exactly HATE the spanking she gets at the hands of Logan Thorndike.


Addison Montgomery is BAD.

Dressed conveniently as a devil-in-disguise, Addison gets caught fleeing the scene and collides with the rich man's son, Logan, a hot junior with the command, body and voice of a god. When he punishes her over his knee, and then some, it exposes untested, guarded truths they recognize in one another, and they get swept up in the delicious power exchange and a tumultuous squall of passion. But Logan has a bad side too, a dark and dominating one, and where their desires lead may be way too hot for them to handle.

#SatSpanks Logan is Mesmerized by Addison's Compliance

Hi. Welcome to Saturday Spanks. I’m so excited to be a part of this spankathon, and I apologize for my tardiness. It was my lousy internet connection, and that’s not a made-up excuse, Sir...Ma’am. But I fully understand if I need to be punished. (hangs head in shame.)

When we left off, Logan told Addison she deserved a few whacks on her girly bits for other currently unpunished offenses. He’s never met a girl like her, and she doesn’t know it, but he’s been testing her level of submission this whole time. She keeps on complying! No matter how crazy or shameful his command may be. He’s mesmerized and driven to push her.

He’d pulled her into the hallway for a little conversation to let her choose between following him into the darkness, without even knowing what that entails, or topping her off at 800 whacks--including hundreds of lighter warm-up slaps--with his hand. She chose the former, and now she’s back in the game room in diaper position, sharing it all with Logan’s father’s poker buddies. But she’s not at all excited about getting belt slaps, especially THERE.

Here’s my snippet from Sorority Pledge 1: A Devil in Disguise:

“Logan, please,” I cried.

“This is entirely optional, Addison. You can bow out and be done, just say the word. But I think your pretty bits could use a little jolt for being so aroused during a correction? Do you? Can your conscience be free without it?”

“No ... it can’t. I’ve been dirty and deserve the punishment you see fit for me. Give me three, Sir.”

He hesitated on replying, only a wavy huff escaping his lips. Maybe he was surprised by my answer. Who in the world would choose to take pussy slaps with a belt over getting up? Me. Miss Sicko Freak Spankazoid, that’s who. “Okay. Keep your bent knees up, but reach down between your legs now and pull your outer lips apart.”

Have fun getting tingly and warm on this hop.

Hot #99Cent New Adult Romances

Here are some hot deals on steamy New Adult titles this weekend. All only 99 cents! Awesome.

Now or Never by A.J. Bennet

Twenty-one year old Grayson Alexander finally breaks away from an abusive relationship and finds herself free for the first time in three years.

Determined to enjoy her new-found freedom, Grayson is intent on sticking with 'no strings attached' relationships—one-night stands, and steamy sex.

But she didn't plan on Derrick. 

Her attraction to the sexy man in uniform quickly turns into an unhealthy relationship. They both try to resist the pull, but neither can stay away. 

When tragedy strikes, Grayson realizes it's now or never—walk away or make it work.

Catching Liam by Sophia Bleu

Twenty-one year-old Jillian Nichols only has one rule when it comes to boys: catch and release. Boy-catching isn't just a game for Jillian and her friends, it's a lifestyle. After all, boys might be good for a dance or a drink and certainly a little under-cover action of the scandalous variety, but expect much else and you're bound for heart ache.

So when her best friends and fellow boy catchers start dropping like flies junior year, Jillian is determined to keep boys in her bedroom and out of her heart. Until she meets Liam McAvoy, the kind of guy that sticks around to make waffles and who can't—or perhaps won't—take a hint. 

Study abroad student Liam doesn't want to be another notch on Jillian's bedpost. Actually he has much more interesting ideas for Jillian and her bedposts, but his student visa's set expiration date means he can't promise her forever. That doesn't mean he's going to walk away from the challenge of discovering why Jillian is hell-bent at keeping people at a distance. 

Before long, neither is sure who is catching who—or if they're playing for keeps. Jillian knows one thing though: falling in love will not only break the only rule of boy-catching, it could also break her heart.

Park and Violet by Marian Tee

On her first year studying abroad, beautiful and vivacious 18-year-old Violet York is on a mission to forget her past. Once, she loved being the Queen of Flirts, loved playing hard-to-get and, eventually, getting caught. Now, she can’t get enough distance between her and all the boys in the world. Well,all the boys except for Park Jin.

Park is like no guy she’s ever met. He’s a 20-year-old Nordic god with a strange accent, or at least that’s one of Violet’s better descriptions of him. Most times, when they’re, literally, fighting like cats and dogs, she prefers to think of him as the blond gorilla, he’s a foul-mouthed jerk who calls her a banshee, a midget, and every other ugly nickname that comes to his nasty mind, goes out of his way to be rude to Violet, and, best of all, he hates girls.

Both Park and Violet carry scars in their hearts, scars that they’re desperate to hide. In each other, they find the unlikeliest allies, a way to keep themselves apart from everyone else and, more importantly, from ever falling in love again.

Yet when they’re not on each other’s throats Park and Violet can’t help succumbing to the intense chemistry between them. As kisses outnumber hisses, there’s a question that’s getting harder and harder for the two to ignore.

Is it time to risk their hearts again?

Always by Ellery Rhodes

A new university, a fresh start, and no falling in love. 

After a freshman year from hell, Juliet Stowe's heart is in a million pieces. She transfers to a new school, determined to leave the past behind. 

But when she's paired up with Lucas McNamara, the 'boy next door' all deliciously grown up, she knows she's in trouble. Back then she didn't understand why her mother, who used to work for Lucas' family, told her not to get attached. But they were inseparable -until her mother was fired because the McNamaras don't mix with the help.

He never thought he'd see her again...

Lucas McNamara knew there was something familiar about his biology partner and is floored when it hits him. She's 'Julie'--the barefoot beauty who was unlike any girl he'd ever met then or since. 

While years have passed and he's far from the carefree kid that Juliet once knew, one thing remains the same. He wants her. He's always wanted her--but he's the heir to the McNamara multi-million dollar empire and his family is hell bent on keeping them apart.

Change of Heart by Scarlett Edwards


That's how I've gotten through nineteen years of life. It's what I do every single day—no matter how badly the odds are stacked against me.

Persevere, and survive.

Those are my two guiding words. I never knew either of my parents. I have no family and no home. The only person I could ever rely on was myself. In this cruel world, that's about as much as I could ask for.

Love? Hah. Don't talk to me about love. I stopped believing in it the day my first boyfriend ripped out my heart three years ago.

That's why love is the last thing on my mind when I leave a packed college bar with a captivating stranger. Yet everything changes when I'm awakened in the middle of the night by a pounding at the door. Suddenly, an arrangement meant for just one night threatens to become something much deeper. 

All expectations are thrown to the wind as I'm tangled in a dangerous world unlike anything I can believe. The man I met has secrets swirling around him like a dark cape. I'm about to become his biggest one...

Pic of the Day: The Beach

I love this pic. It is so adorable. They are so in to each other.

#SatSpanks Blog Hop ~ Addison is Still Gettin' It

Hi. Welcome to another Saturday Spankings blog hop. Hope you're enjoying all your stingy licks on this good morning.

Here's another snippet from A Devil in Disguise. Poor Addison is still getting her punishment from Logan. But, she deserves it. And she knows it. This sorority pledge chucked eggs at a mansion on Halloween at the demand of her sisters, and the rich man's son, Logan, a junior at her college, is making her pay for it. But even for a spanko like Addison, getting spanked in front of an audience--his father's poker buddies--was never in her wildest fantasies. 

He tapped me, rubbed the belt over me teasingly and made me wait at least thirty seconds between the final blows. The last lick felt like it cut me or something, and I shrieked. The smart it left behind had me crunching sobs.
I went to get up, and he said, “Not yet.”
Aren’t we done? I thought it was over. You said six, and I really do feel sorry now.”
I said on your bottom. There’s still the matter of you getting turned on by all this. I think your betraying pussy deserves three.”

Have fun on your Saturday, Naughty Peeps.

She meets her prince charming at her father's company Christmas party. Problem is he happens to be her dad's new boss. Worse problem is, her dad totally hates him. 

But what Daddy doesn't know... 

Braxton Farris takes over Farris Industries out of family obligation and expects his new employees might resent his youth and inexperience. What he doesn't anticipate is the level of contempt Tom Davenport carries for him. Nor does he count on falling for Tom's daughter. When he and Lenna start a secret affair, a disaster of corporate proportions is bound to follow. But to be together, they must decide if the fallout is worth it.

Elijah Daniels is hardened from a life that's seen the worst the world has to offer. But when he meets Caelyn, he knows there’s something different about her. She's been through hell and back, but she hasn't given up.

Caelyn can see that Elijah is gorgeous on the outside, but she also knows he's dangerous. And the last man she trusted hurt her so badly, she may be beyond repair. 

But the harder she tries to resist, the more Elijah’s persistence strips her of her armor and leaves her naked and vulnerable.

In the end, neither of them will be able to predict just how far they might have to go to save themselves...and each other.

NAKED is the first book in the dark and sexy new adult series by New York Times bestselling author Kelly Favor.

Sacrifice by M.G. Morgan

The moment Sam looked at me, I knew he saw me. The real me, not the one I pretended to be. He saw beyond my pretence to the girl beneath. The girl who cried herself to sleep at night. The girl who pushed people away, when all she really wanted was for someone to look her in the eye and tell her everything would be alright. That life wasn’t always pain. That living wasn’t always this difficult. That the ones you loved didn’t always leave you behind. In that moment, Sam saw me, and I saw him. And I knew without a doubt that I would love him and he would betray me.

But what was love without a little pain? What was love without a little sacrifice?

Natasha Masterton, a young college student on the verge of graduation, has the world at her feet. But all is not at it seems. Her mother is dead and she hasn’t seen her father in over three years. The only dealing she has with him is when he deposits her allowance into a bank account every month. Her father’s lack of interest has hardened Natasha to the rest of the world, leaving her cold and more than a little broken.

When Sam Harker crashes into Natasha’s life, asking questions about her father and dragging up the past, Natasha’s interest in piqued. The more time she spends with him, the more she falls for his easy charm and quick smile.

But Sam has secrets of his own - secrets that threaten their blossoming relationship. And when the real reason for Natasha’s fathers disinterest becomes apparent, a sacrifice must be made.

Love, honour and duty collide… risking more than just a broken heart. Sometimes love is worth the ultimate price.

When Lucky's car breaks down one night after a party, it is Zane who comes to her rescue. As Zane attempts to sweep Lucky off of her feet, she soon realizes that nothing is as it seems and that Zane may very well be the guy for whom she changes the rules. That is until she meets Braydon.

#SatSpanks Blog Hop ~ Excerpt from Sorority Pledge 1: A Devil in Disguise

Hi. It's another spank-filled Saturday. Hope you are finding some delicious lickings on this hop. Today I'm sharing another excerpt from Sorority Pledge 1: A Devil in Disguise. 

Logan has just given naughty Addison a couple of spanking phases in front of his father's poker buddies because she was caught chucking eggs at his mansion at the demand of her sisters on Halloween. He's pulled her into the hallway to discuss phase three and let her choose the direction.

     “Including hundreds of playfully delivered warmup slaps, that’s where we’re at.”

“Oh, you counted? Wow, seven hundred and twenty-six is a lot.”

“Indeed, that’s way more than I expected to give you.” His chickadee wings finally reached their destination, stopping and curling right under my soaked flower. “And look what we have here.” 

      I gasped when two fingers drew lines along my flesh. 

      He tsked at me and said, “Syrup on tap, even more than when I last checked.” Logan stroked the folds of my slit and covered my mouth with his other hand, shielding a moan when he edged my hole with little circles. “Shhh, bad girl. How many spanks does it take to make an impact on a spanko who’s loving every minute of her punishment?”

For You by Mimi Strong

I should have known by the tattoos that Sawyer was trouble. My mother always said to stay away from boys with ink, but she ignored her own advice. She also abandoned me and my little sister.

Life's been hard for the two of us, on the run and on our own, but I just turned twenty-one and started working at a bar in a new city. I wear a fake wedding band and a veil of lies.

My gold ring didn't stop Sawyer. He looked into me with his heavenly green eyes, and I nearly forgot my pretty lies. Now he wants to help me get my life together.

I should stay away, because he could blow my cover. When we get found—and I know one day we will—I want my sister to be old enough to handle the truth about our past.

I may be hanging out with Sawyer, but we're definitely not dating. I swear, he's not setting me on fire with every glance or casual touch. We're just friends. I'm not thinking about him wrapping those tattooed arms around me, every second of every day.

We Are Made of Stardust by Mimi Strong

There I was, minding my own business at Peachtree Books when this lunatic comes racing in the door and knocks me into his arms. I would have ripped him a new one, but he was kinda familiar, and hot. Like I-want-to-have-your-sexy-babies-now hot.

Turns out he looks familiar because I stare at his gorgeous face on TV every week. Yup, Dalton Deangelo. In the oh-so-firm flesh.

I let him hide out from the press for a while, then I thought he'd be on his way, and I could breathe normally again. But no. He found me interesting. He wanted to tag along to my cousin's wedding with me. I couldn't say no to that face ... or THOSE EYES. Before the night was through, he was saying sweet things, then dirty things. Very dirty things.

I try to keep my eyes wide open. I've made terrible, stupid mistakes in the past. But Dalton Deangelo's touch turns me to Jell-O.

I'm just a regular girl, and he's rich and famous with no body fat. The guy has a butler! So, why is he chasing me? And why can't I say no? And what is this sordid secret of his the reporters are trying to uncover?

SYNOPSIS: A New Adult Romance Novel by New York Times Bestselling Author

Life sucks. And, as soon as Sidney picks up the pieces, something always knocks her back onto her butt. It's never pretty, but this time is different. This time 'pretty' isn't even the right word. Peter is the personification of perfection. It's like he fell off his angel perch in purgatory, because let's face it--any guy that hot has got to be naughty. He was probably sent here to ruin her life. Peter is beyond beautiful with his sexy blue eyes, dark hair, and toned body. Add in his charming wit and Peter is everything Sidney ever wanted in a man, but when things get hot and heavy, Peter shows her the door. Sidney takes the walk of shame and leaves. It's the end of the worst blind date ever. Her life couldn't possibly reach higher levels of suckage, but it does. The next morning everything comes crashing down. The insanely hot guy from last night, the one that saw her half naked, is teaching at the front of the class room.

MY REVIEW: I enjoyed the characters in this book. They worked well together and their chemistry was palpable and full of delicious, zappy sparks. The damage for Peter and Sidney is woven in seamlessly, and I liked the pace at which it spilled out.

Their interactions ranged from playful to steamy to tense, which was fun to watch as their friendship and romantic attachment grew over time, all the while not leading to sex by the end. Their attraction is complicated by the fact that's he's a professor at her college and she's his TA. Oops. If only they had known that BEFORE he peeled off her bra and familiarized himself with the contours of her mouth.

I am a fast reader and swallowed this in an hour and a half. I was not a big fan of the end. I thought the cops should have been brought in, but then there'd be no sequel. Minor blip: the spelling of the main character's name constantly changed throughout. By the guy on the cover, I was also expecting a male POV. Not a big deal, I liked Sidney's voice and the writing style, I was just a bit taken back when I first tore in.

MY RATING: 5 Stilettos

Pic of the Day: The Flogger

I love this pic because for one, it's outside. Hot, hot. Punishment and pleasure that bleeds into the yard scorches me for some reason, like they don't give a damn who sees or hears. And I also love how each of them is dressed and that her hair is gathered up in his fist. Someone had a very naughty morning and is about to taste the bite and tickle of the flogger. By the looks of it though, this isn't a scene, and his position on the other side of her tells me he means business. I don't think this little subbie is getting a warmup or wispy figure eights. No, no. Not today. She's going to have to clamp that mouth shut to keep her screams from lifting into the air as he rains down on her, so the neighbors don't hear. Maybe next time she'll behave and obey her Sir.
