Step into the Honey Club, where every sensual boundary will be tested in search of the ultimate pleasure....

Branch doesn't exist. Living off the grid, he's looking for a way to forget his past and the guilt that plagues him. But no woman has ever been able to bring him to the edge he craves.

After a traumatic experience of her own, Evangeline stepped away from the decadent world of the Honey Club. But when she gets Branch's offer - to play without boundaries or commitments - it's too tempting for her to refuse.

As their passion ignites, Evangeline and Branch push each other to their farthest limit, fulfilling their darkest desires while falling harder and deeper than they ever imagined.

After finally popping my Kristen Ashley cherry with The Deep End, I couldn’t wait to listen to more in Honey series. Lizbeth Gwynn brought all the sexy and emotions with her narration of The Farthest Edge. Great author/narrator pairing!

Things you need to know about this listen:

  • Hot as fuck!
  • You’ll need batteries, batteries, batteries or someone to help you get sweaty
  • 30% story, 70% jacking, milking, sucking and any other ways of getting a hot alpha sub off in a playroom or bedroom. (Not that I minded at all!)
  • Smoking narration to bring melt your ear buds
  • You’ll wish you were part of a ménage with Branch and Evangeline or at the very least with your face to the window of the playroom.
  • Did I say hot as fuck?!

I have now added ALL Kristen Ashley backlist to my TBR. I’m not sure which series I’ll read/listen to next. I’m thinking either Rock Chic or Colorado Mountain Series. If you have read her please place your vote for your favorite series in the comments.

 

 

About Kristen Ashley

Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA. She nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorise and she hadn’t taken her first breath!).

Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana but has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus she has been blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her posse is loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write.

Kristen was raised in a house with a large and multi-generational family. They lived on a very small farm in a small town in the heartland and existed amongst the strains of Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).

Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.

And as she keeps growing up, it keeps getting better.

The Flirtation by Tara Sue Me

The Flirtation by Tara Sue Me

Posted August 12, 2017 by Jennifer in Book Review | 0 Comments

  The Flirtation is the second book experience with Tara Sue Me and I have to say after loving both books (first was Master Professor) I am now hooked on Tara’s writing style. The Flirtation is 10th book in the Submissive series but it can easily be read as a stand alone. I know because that’s what I did. After loving the world and characters in this installment I will go back and read the other books in the series. I read over the Synopsis for the other books to see what books the secondary characters were in because there were a few couples or references to couples. I want to read all their stories. Why did I love The Flirtation? Main characters – Lynne and Simon […]

  Check out my review on Saturday!   Excerpt Simon stood in front of Lynne and took his belt off, making sure he did it slowly enough that she could hear the leather sliding through the loops of his pants. He didn’t miss the small shiver that shook her body. “You know I’m a sadist?” He hadn’t told her when they were together the last time, and he didn’t want to go any further without being very clear about who he was. “Yes, Sir.” He let one end of the belt hang so just a part of it was in her line of sight. She sucked in a breath. Yes. “Your mind is racing, isn’t it?” he asked. “There’s the part telling you to stand […]


The Deep End by Kristen Ashley

The Deep End by Kristen Ashley

     After so many others recommending her to me I finally pop my Kristen Ashley cherry with The Deep End. I’ve been on a D/s reading kick lately so The Deep End worked into my reading schedule at a perfect time. This is the 2nd title I’ve read where the heroine is the Domme and the hero is the submissive and I find it funny that the first title I read was Natural Law by Joey W. Hill was referenced in this novel. It’s the book Amèlie’s book club of Doms is reading. I’ve seen where Ashley fans aren’t jumping for joy that she wrote in this genre but I have to say she wrote it well and I welcome more of it on my […]

    Tiffany Edwards is a 26-year old mother of three children under the age of seven and is separated from her abusive husband. Until recently, she lived in a dilapidated trailer in an equally squalid park but managed to make some very good friends. When her brother-in-law discovers her, Blake Edwards offers her money to disappear. Hurt and desperate, she takes the money and moves on. They have a chance meeting one year later when she shows up at Annie & Dylan’s Christmas party and it’s a game changer.   I’ve been hungering for this story since the last book ended on that Christmas party cliffhanger and it was definitely worth waiting for. Tiffany may have been down but she’s definitely not out. I […]


Separation Games by C.D. Reiss

Separation Games by C.D. Reiss

Posted January 9, 2017 by Jennifer in Blog Tour, Book Review | 0 Comments

   WARNING: While I did not have an issue with it and I thought that Reiss handled the scene and characters with care, there is a scene between Adam and Diana that some readers may not be comfortable with. While I would not call it a simulated rape scene it does push the line that some readers may not want to experience.    CD Reiss never fails to leave me feeling emotionally drained and satisfied all at the same time. I have been waiting for Separation Games since I was 50% into Marriage Games. Diana and Adam are two wonderfully broken people. They lived five years of marriage together never really being their true selves or the real couple they could have been. After Diana left Adam they both […]


Review of Holiday Novellas

Review of Holiday Novellas

Posted December 21, 2016 by Jennifer in Book Review | 0 Comments

In the spirit of cleaning out my ebooks and getting into the holiday mood, I binge read a few holiday novellas I’ve been holding on to for a few years. Here are my quick thoughts on them. I wish I had not waited so long to read Vampire for Christmas by Felicity Heaton. It was a great mix of action, humor, and romance to fill that paranormal void. Rafe and Shannon made me think of other couples where the heroine is a vampire hunter and the guy is a vampire. Like Buffy/Spike and Cat/Bones. Their love wasn’t meant to be and yet their two years working together, hunting demons side by side gave them both something the other was missing. It was great to see this couple […]


Marriage Games by C.D. Reiss

Marriage Games by C.D. Reiss

         C.D. Reiss is permanently on my auto-buy list and so is Sebastian York, listening to Marriage Games is no brainer! Marriage Games is told through both Adam and Diana’s POVs, with the first half of the book told from Adam’s POV while the second half switches to Diana’s POV.  switching back between Present Tense and Past Tense. Each chapter is labeled as Present Tense, Past Perfect, feeding off the flashback aspect and the literary aspect of the publishing business the couple own and run together. I love it when an audio book has switching POVs is performed by a male and female narrator. Elena Wolfe voices Diana’s POVs and her dialogue even in Adam’s POV. Sebastian York voices Adam’s POV and his dialogue during Diana’s […]
