Alexander is just as taken by her, but knows that giving into temptation can only end in disaster. When the couple succumb to a passionate, furious battle of the wills, Amelia is thrilled and afraid; Alexander’s erotic preferences are shocking to the uninitiated.

Excerpt

"My body is opening up and while my hips swerve on his desk, I am waiting, ready for penetration. But it’s not coming. My whole being is transgressing though his hand on my behind, one moment petting me and the next smacking me, and his raspy voice driving me mad.
“Oh, Amelia…the things I could do to you…”
He is restraining himself, I can feel it, and regarding him over my shoulder I want to scream ‘fuck me’ at him. Gyrating harder and harder over the desk I can sense my explosion coming and I know I am not thinking straight when I want him inside of me. Mounting the desk higher …I’m trembling.
“Please…..fuck me.” I don’t recognize my whining voice.
“Begging, Amelia?” His voice is dark, in control, but his panting is betraying him, he is as aroused as I am and enjoying me like this, feral and helpless.
“Yes…..please.” 


Simone's Review

*ARC received in return for an honest review

I have had the pleasure of meeting Alexandra I on Facebook and Twitter and had an immediate connection with her, so I was interested in reading and reviewing her books. I started off reading her Flash Burn and Flash Burn II, short continuation of events which starts with a hot e-mail turning up in the wrong in box, bringing two very different people together and things get very hot and steamy. These are short novellas but panty-melting hot so if you're looking for a bit of afternoon delight these books are a definite read.

Now, on to my review of COLLAR OF FREEDOM

Amelia is our leading lady. She has been married for 10 years, has two young boys with her husband but her marriage has been more for convenience than love. Amelia has been going through the motions of her every day life unfulfilled, lonely and bored. Her husband's passion is for his art and Amelia is the accessory he brings out when he needs a plus one for his events, the rest of the time she is expected to just disappear into the background. Amelia seems to just accept that this is her life and this is what is expected of her.

This is, until she meets her new boss who seems to take a very unusual and intense interest in Amelia. From the first time Alexander walks into the door he just oozes Alpha male and over-dominating (just a tad). To be honest I love a hot alpha male but, with Alexander, I found him way off the scale, almost bordering on sexual harassment. So for me, I didn't warm to him too much at the beginning as he was very pushy. There didn't seem to be much emotion, he just seemed to want to get off rather than having an emotional connection to Amelia. But as the story went on I changed my feelings for Alexander and understood him more when he opened up about his background.

"Nice doesn't really describe him. He is ....". I don't really know how to portray him"...he is my peace. My other half...

Amelia and Alexander together, well that's a whole different story! The sex is hardcore and Alexander really does awaken the sexy side of Amelia, he wipes the cob webs away and shows her what her body needs and has been waiting for. Oh my, did Amelia really did come into her own in the sex department! To be honest I felt that she was more alpha than Alexander at times, doing a role reversal maybe would have suited her better as it was Alexander that backed away from their sexual play while Amelia wanted to continue most of the time. Also, at times, I felt their sexual connection was stronger than their emotional one. It seemed to be all about sexual experiences rather than getting to know each other on a more emotional level.

I was often left feeling that if they where planning on staying together where would her children fit in to this new life style, as a lot of the time they seemed to be handed over to the housekeeper when Amelia wanted time with Alexander or needed time to sort things out.

I'm not sure I would call this a love story as I didn't feel too much of an emotional connection between the main characters but more of a sexual awakening, making a stand for what you believe in and wanting to make a better future for yourself knowing that you deserve better and having a man in your life that loves you and respects you, and treats you as an equal.

I really enjoyed this story and if you are looking for a hot, sexy, kinky read with a good plot and story line, definitely put COLLAR OF FREEDOM on your Goodreads list. I will definitely be waiting for more from Alexandra I

Release Blitz: Whispering Wishes by Jennifer Miller + teaser + giveaway




Be careful what you wish for...

Normally, Aspen Edwards will do anything for her free-spirited best friend, Mischa, but this feels like a bit much. The plan is simple, all Aspen has to do is write down a few affirmations and recite them during the New Moon. But as skeptical as Aspen is, a promise is a promise. So, she whispers each wish to the universe, pondering the possibilities of "what if." Who wouldn't want a promotion at work, a new home, or to become an irresistible sex goddess?

But Aspen’s luck doesn't change with the wishes, or the wind. Each of her whispered prayers produces disaster. She gets fired. Her car breaks down. She gets kicked out of her house. And of course there is the crap icing on the cake of doom, falling for flirtatious and sexy, Wes, who sees her as nothing more than his “little sis”. It might not be so bad if his house weren't the only place she had to go.

Unbeknownst to her, the universe has a few tricks up its sleeve, and Aspen's bad luck streak might just be putting her right where she needs to be!

SNEAK PEEK

Oh hell, this is so not cool, this is going to be torture. All I want to do is touch him. I take my glass off the table so I have something to do with my hands. What I want to do is trace his mohawk or the planes of his face with my fingers. All this does is make me even more aware of him. I mean he’s lying right here on me for God sakes. I feel aches in my body that aren’t at all appropriate between friends.

***Caution: this book contains scenes of a sensual and sexual nature, including mild BDSM







I am a hopeless, incurable romantic. When I'm not reading it, I'm writing it. I have just written my first serialized novel and published each part with Amazon Kindle and Smashwords. When I am not writing, I am reading. I love lively, believable characters that you can identify with. I hate getting to the end of a good book and will regularly mourn a good book when when I've finished it. My own writing is contemporary adult/erotica. My fave romance quote comes from Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City "I am someone who is looking for love. Real love. Ridiculous, inconvenient, consuming, can't-live-without-each-other love." - Amen to that sister. My fave sex quote comes from Oscar Wilde "Everything in the world is about sex except sex. Sex is about power." - Ain't that the truth!
