Rules are meant to be broken.

Carmen Dane was a self-assured Domme who always maintained control…until she submitted to sinfully sexy Master Thomas Regala. She gave him her trust and her vulnerability, and he betrayed her. She’s avoided him for months, but now he knows the truth and refuses to let her hide. Her all-consuming hunger for Thomas has only grown stronger during their time apart. But Carmen will never submit to him—or anyone—ever again.

Thomas isn’t about to give up that easily. Carmen is his Mistress and his submissive. He’ll do almost anything for a second chance—even if it means giving up some of his power for her pleasure. Now they’ve embarked on a game of desire and dark, greedy need that breaks both their rules. But can Thomas ever wholly submit to Carmen when he wants to claim her as his own?

Carmen and Thomas’s story started in the previous book, Rule Master. We got a sneak peek into their relationship where Carmen was hiding something big from Thomas. Two somethings actually, as in his twin sons. Rule Changer takes us a little over a year from the end of Rule Master. The cat is out of the bag and Thomas has come to collect is family.

Carmen and Thomas are both Dominates so their romantic relationship is not the norm in their world. With that issue to work out they are also dealing with the reasons Thomas broke things off with Carmen. They shared family business past that lead to his aunt killing her father. Carmen gave her trust to Thomas one night months ago and he took that trust and twisted it. She won’t allow herself to trust him or any man again.

Rule Changer is an erotic romance with a touch of suspense that has carried over the whole series. Carmen and Thomas work on their trust issues and how to be a family with their boys. As Thomas works on tearing down Carmen’s walls, he shows her that she can trust him and how much he wants her and their boys. They journey they take to their HEA is a sexy and touching one.

There was a side character near the end who I’m hoping Sienna Snow writes a book about. He didn’t much page time but I found him interesting and can see a story there for him as a stand alone or as a first book in a spin-off series. Fingers crossed!

Excerpt

 

I shut the door of my office and folded my arms across my chest. “Now that we’re alone, what do you want?”

He quirked a brow that made me think of things best left forgotten.

“What do you think I want to discuss besides the fact you scened with another man? The fact that you caressed him, kissed him, and made him come at your feet.”

I leaned against the desk, which housed housing  a wall of security monitors. “Who I scene with and what I do is not your concern.”

“The hell it isn’t.”

I jumped at his outburst but remained quiet.

“Tell me that you were aroused performing with that boy. Did you enjoy caressing him, kissing him, making him come? You may have everyone else watching fooled, but I know you. I know when you’re turned on, and you weren’t even remotely stirred. You enjoyed the high of control, nothing more.”

I clenched my jaw, trying to rein in the turmoil rolling around inside me. “What does it matter how my body reacted? You aren’t part of my life. You made sure of that. Besides…” I paused and closed my eyes for a second.

“Besides?” he probed, and stepped in front of me.

I stared him directly in the eyes. “Besides, I stated where I stood with you during your visit to my estate.”

He remained quiet, holding my gaze.

I stood up, forcing him to step back, cocked a hand on my hip, and tilted my chin slightly, giving him my stern Domme stance. “Let me ask you this one more time, and I expect an answer. Why are you in my club?”

His pupils dilated, and his golden- halo- rimmed hazel eyes clouded to a dark green.

I inhaled deep.

Please don’t look at me like that. My heart can’t take it.

“I came for the mother of my children and…”

I swallowed.

“My Mistress. My submissive.”

    Both Mia DeAngelis and Adam Miller have recently returned to Compass Cove on Long Island. Her grandparents lived there and she spent most summers with them growing up. Now that she’s the sole guardian for her 13-year old nephew Ben, Mia wants the quality of life she experienced in this small town and accepts a position as a librarian for the local college. Adam was an NFL star quarterback until a car accident ended his career and had him reexamine his shallow-minded lifestyle. He’s the coach for the college football team and is learning how to live a better life and have more meaningful relationships.   I found the premise for this story intriguing, drawn by the stereotypical contrasts between Mia and Adam […]

  I love this author and I have loved this Devil’s Isle series from the start. Somehow, this is an audio series for me. The world and the character of Claire are something special. Claire is mature; she’s had to be, since she is on her own. Her skills and practical nature reflect her upbringing. In The Hunt, she learns much more about her family history as she works to help all the people in New Orleans, with or without magic.  She grows in her magic skills, and deals with new information. Even though she is a target, and more isolated with hiding, because of her magic, she makes a stand for what is right. At the end of The Sight, Liam leaves. For the […]

        I love this Winston Brothers series and its characters. I trust Penny Reid for smart and humorous writing. The feels are gigantic! It isn’t just the characters, the small town world, the romance of each book; it is also the intelligent, compassionate handling of authentic feelings and issues. There are also other things happening besides the romance for layers of emotions and information, like real life. Beard in Mind is the fourth book, with Beau and Shelly. Beau is one of the twins, with Duane. Shelly is Quinn’s sister, of Janie and Quinn from Neanderthal Seeking Human  in the related Knitting in the City series.  Beau is the cheerful, polite one who gets along with everyone, until Shelly. He has so, […]


Eye Candy by Jessica Lemmon

Eye Candy by Jessica Lemmon

I have a weakness for romances with friends-to-lovers and Eye Candy by Jessica Lemmon hit the spot! Eye Candy is about two best friends, Jackie and Vince. They share titles as vice-president at a marketing firm, they share pizza, beer and movie nights. They also share the fact they both are divorced and are gun shy about getting back into the dating world. Vince has done the “guy thing” and had a few one-night stands over the years to get over his ex-wife, but he is ready for more with his BFF, Jackie. She on the other hand has dragged her feet in the dating world and he doesn’t want to be her rebound. Vince comes up with a plan to get Jackie out there […]

    Review   We met both Melody Rodriguez and Trent Hettinger in the first two books of this series. But, we only knew the basics. She’s Evelyn’s best friend, he dated Evelyn briefly. He’s into BDSM and is a Dom. She’s really good at her jobs and is in a committed relationship with him. Now, their story takes major steps backwards in time to share how they came to be.   One of the unexpected bonuses coming out of this story was getting third party perspectives about the Evelyn/Austin/Ross relationship from the very beginning. I wondered during the first two books how much employees and others knew about them, what they thought and that gets answered. And, more details about Evelyn’s dalliance with Trent […]

Blog tour: Dating-ish by Penny Reid

Posted June 13, 2017 by Anne in Blog Tour, Book Review | 0 Comments

  Penny Reid is one of my favorite authors, in the top 5,  and nearly everything of hers I read is a 5 star book. She has included so many things I love like friends knitting and cooking, and cultural things like Harry Potter and Charlie Hunnam.  She is addictive. I have such respect for her work. So what about Dating-ish?  I had trouble starting this one; I didn’t like Matt. At 38%, I wasn’t sure I was going to like him. Ugh, coconut.  I LOVE Marie. She, like Penny’s books, is smart and vulnerable and honest. It amazes me how strong these women are to be so authentic.  As a total computer nerd, things like AI and robots are fascinating to me. Plus, I […]

    I said in my review of Tapped that I needed just a little bit more. Well, I got a lot more in this follow up story.   Ross Hoffman walked away from his relationship with Evelyn and Austin after realizing the impossibilities of having it work, especially with Evelyn being pregnant with his child and legally married to Austin. He escapes to a brewery in Boulder but cannot seem to forget Evelyn. When he is suddenly drawn back to Grand Rapids, he’s “lightstruck” by their new brewmaster, Elisa (Elle) Nagel, a fellow German who is completely opposite of his “type.”   Frankly, I loved the three-way relationship between Austin, Evelyn and Ross as Crowe created a fascinating situation between them so I was […]
