Control was my Bitch

Excerpt

Aimee snapped her fingers in front of my face. “You in there?”
I blinked several times, bringing myself back to the adult toys-r-us party. “Sorry.”
Renée reiterated, “It’s all about the mindset. Own your sexuality and his.”
“Isn’t it about the power exchange?”
A wicked grin slid along her lips. “Hell yeah.”
Aimee’s eyes were lit with fire as she declared, “Make him. Whether it’s a Dom/sub or straight vanilla, power must change hands. We can’t both be in control at the same time.”
Sofie added, “Someone must lead and someone must follow for any relationship to work. You already lead him at times. I’ve seen it.”
“I do?”
“Damn girl, where have you been?” Aimee had an incredulous look as she continued, “That man fucking adores you.”
“I love him so much. I don’t want to let him down, y’know what I mean?”
Sofie smiled, “Not possible. News flash, he loves you too.”
Why I was so worried suddenly about E’s feelings disturbed me more than I wanted to admit. Could lack of sex be causing it? If so, was he struggling with all of this negative crap too? Time to remedy that. I really did respect his wishes to wait until our wedding night to have intercourse again. Part of me felt beyond honored that he wanted to. Fine line to walk, helping him stick to his vow while testing his virility. Geez, what was I thinking? Your soon to be husband needs to know he’s still a man. Right. Operation Domme-the-daylights-out-of-Even was now in full swing.

*****
Fully expecting to see Nik and Alex when I walked into the penthouse, surprise hit me at seeing E asleep on the couch. God he was beautiful. Not easy on the eyes handsome but light your lady parts on fire attractive. A heart-hammering kind of gorgeous, he really was sex on a stick. The fact he was a loyal, good, honest man added to his appeal. In case anyone ever thought he was tame, the tribal dragon tattoo would make them think twice along with his commanding presence. Never could there be a doubt he was in full control. His deep moan instigated my gaze to perform a full scan of his body, making sure he wasn’t in any pain. He was pushing himself too hard, but there’d be no reasoning with his stubborn ass. I turned to leave him in peace when he moaned my name. Easing closer, I didn’t miss the erection that greeted me.
“I’m right here, E,” I reassured, watching his reactions.
A low groan was followed by his hand stroking his straining length. Still completely lost in what appeared to be his erotic dream, he commanded, “Touch me, Lacey.”
Who was I to deny the man I loved? Besides, he needed to know that part of him worked. The doctor had assured us that the nerve damage would eventually heal. No time like the present to test it. Plus there was the yearning to have him in my mouth. The absolute necessity of ensuring he didn’t break his vow sat front and center in my mind as I placed my fingers over his. Intention to let him lead was there until I recalled Sofie’s office. He was asleep, so if it were an epic fail only I would know. Moving my fingers to his muscled thighs I directed, “My show. You’re going to do as I say, E.”
His penis grew harder and longer as his hand stilled. From the waistband of his gym shorts, his head broke free. I licked my lips at the sight and forced my gaze up to his tightly closed eyes. He was fighting for control. “Take off your shorts.” His brows furrowed at my order. “Do it. Now.”
His hands began to work the shorts off as I purred, “You’re cock is gorgeous.” I firmly declared, “And mine. You will follow my every command.”
Again, I watched the deep lines in his forehead. He was battling himself. “Give it to me, E. Surrender.”

Scream my name

Tanya Rae’s Review:

First off you do need to read this series in order. We were first introduced to the Strand Brothers in “Branded” Book 1” was Nik Strand’s & Aimee Taylor’s story. “Bound” Book 2 was Even (Pronounced Evan & the youngest brother) Strand & Lacey Kincaid’s story. And, “Broken” Book 3 was Alex Strand’s & Sofie Fields story. Bliss is the conclusion in the Strand Brothers Series and is a Novella. Bliss is a fast read!

Lora Ann you did it again “Bliss” is OMG Hot, Hawt, Hot & steamy with “panty melting scenes”!!!! Bliss is also not a dark read like Broken was and is the continuation of Even & Lacey’s story. Will they find their Bliss? I am not telling but, it is one h*ll of a SEXY read!

I loved this book, series and love this author. I am looking forward to reading more. Shhh!! I hear there may be a little somethin, somethin that Lora Ann is putting together but, I can’t tell you!

Warning: This book is not a thriller. It is, however, one HOT read which contains a lot of sex, including BDSM, and graphic language. It is recommended for an 18+ audience.

Bliss was a complimentary copy provided for an honest review. I give Bliss 5 stars. I loved the conclusion.

Broken (Strand Brothers Series, Book 3) by Lora Ann Blog Tour

LA Broken Cover FB full flat resized

*Please note: Broken should not to be read as a stand-alone due to the subplot tie in with Branded, book 1, and Bound, book 2, of the Strand Brothers Series.*

Synopsis

Learning to find strength in brokenness…

Fashion designer Sofie Fields may seem to have a perfect life from the outside. The wounds she carries are the emotional kind, and since she refuses to get close to anyone, they remain. She once knew a great love, but a sequence of events forced her into a choice she thinks is unsurvivable. A loveless marriage leaves her empty, damaged. The only light is the step-daughter she clings to and adores. After her divorce, Sofie is certain the love from her past is lost forever. A deathbed confession changes it all.

Alex Strand is a successful attorney and the middle child who is in one way or another helping out his brothers, Nik and Even. All the Strand brothers are known for their Viking-like stature along with good looks, but Alex is by far the one who turns the most heads. His movie star appearance coupled with laid back charm is beyond appealing, yet if one cares to look deeper they will see it’s a façade. Alex hides secrets well until the skeletons he’s kept begin to break out, one by one.

The game to catch a madman continues. Alex is desperately in search of evidence necessary to bring down Senator Caleb Reynolds once and for all. What he doesn’t foresee is how his past and present will collide with enough force to shake his foundation.

Hearts need to be mended.
Time is running out.
Obstacles are placed.
Do Alex and Sofie have what it takes to overcome?

**Due to violence, strong language and sexual content, this book is recommended for 18+. **

Tanya Rae’s Review: 5.0 stars

I loved Broken! I love the Strand Brothers! I felt sucked into Broken’s story line. Broken is the 3rd book in the trilogy Strand Brothers by Lora Ann and is the last book.

So many lives have been broken by one man “Senator Caleb” The story continues with Alex Strand, the middle child of the Strand brothers and Sofie are reunited after being apart for 16 years. No need for me to give you a synopsis of this book so I will let you read the synopsis that Lora Ann provided for you.

“Yet one thing was certain, we became strongest when we lay broken, in need of others to lift us up and see us through.”

I got my HEA but, not before a lot of dark bad things that happen. You had me crying Lora Ann. There are some sad parts in Broken. Hence the name of the book. But those broken pieces will be put back together.

“*Please note this is not a stand-alone due to the sub-plot tie in with Branded, book 1 and Bound, book 2.*”

**Due to strong language, violence and sexual content, this book is recommended for 18+.** Meaning this book is oh so HOT, steamy & panty melting!

Excerpt

“Whoa there, cowboy.” A small feminine hand met my chest. “What the hell has you in such a tizzy?”
I looked down into the eyes of Shannon, the detective I’d had the privilege of working with, as well as sharing a few heated nights of passion. I attempted a smile, capturing her hand and bringing it to my lips. “Nothing my favorite redhead can’t fix.”
“Cool your heels, bubba. I’m here on business.” She winked, letting me know the possibilities that waited once she was through with whatever case had brought her here.
“Anything I can help with?”
“Yes, actually,” she said, backing away and beginning to walk towards the entrance.
I followed suit, matching my long strides to her shorter ones. While holding the door open for her, I examined her tiny yet firm ass in action. Casually, I adjusted my cock before we walked down the hallway. “So…how can I help?”
“This is about Ari.” Her voice now held a professional tone.
Fuck me. “What about her?”
She stopped dead in her tracks and turned to face me. “I’ve found her birth parents.”
I seethed, “Who the hell are they, Shannon? I swear when I get my hands on those two.”
She swallowed hard and glanced away. Before I could demand more information, Sofie joined us.
“I’m sorry to interrupt,” Sofie said as she reached us.
Shannon glanced sideways and answered, “You’re fine. How may I help you?”
I was not so kind. Barely leashing in my wrath, I bit out, “What the fuck do you want, Sofie?”
She squared her shoulders and stood firm in the face of my disdain. “You don’t ever speak to me like that again, Alex.”
Shannon coughed to hide her giggle. Damn women. Sofie held out her hand towards Shannon and introduced, “I’m Sofie Fields. Pleased to make your acquaintance.”
“I’m Detective Shannon McLeary, and the pleasure is all mine. I believe I own at least three of your remarkable creations.”
Sofie blushed. “Wow. I just never know who I’ll run into that knows my designs.”
“You have amazing talent and a keen eye for color and texture,” Shannon gushed.
“Thank you,” Sofie humbly replied.
I stood there glowering at the woman who had ripped my heart out all those years ago and never gave it back. I thought some piece of it was still there to share with Shannon. Now, I wasn’t so sure about that.

Synopsis

When submission, love, and something far too terrifying bind.

How far will you go for someone you love? Which lines are you willing to cross? Who will you turn to when the ones that should be there for you aren’t?

Lacey Kincaid is in search of her drug addicted, twin sister, Keeley. But every time she locates her, Keeley moves on. Now Keeley has disappeared without a trace and it’s up to Lacey to find her before it’s too late.

Even (pronounced Evan) a.k.a. E Strand is the youngest of three and by far the most dangerous. No, he isn’t a badass like his oldest brother, Nik. Nor is he the most handsome like his brother, Alex. His danger lies in his personal preferences in the bedroom. Many know him as the Master and it is a title he deserves. Owner of numerous sex clubs as well as instructor of BDSM Even is fulfilled, until the night a dancer at one of his clubs catches his eye. She’s innocent. Beautiful. Off limits. Yet he wants her for his own.

It doesn’t take long for E to realize the woman he desires to dominate needs his help. As their journey to find Keeley runs into one dead-end after another, passion ignites between these two. But is it enough to bind them together forever? Or, will the bond between sisters keep the lovers apart? Can they free Keeley from the clutches of a madman in time? And if they do, will happily ever after be in their future?

Due to violence, language, & sexual content this book is not recommended for anyone under the age of 18.

Excerpt
18+

Lacey began to walk towards the bus stop when I grabbed her arm firmly and hauled her to a waiting Range Rover. She looked up at me in shock. “What are you doing?”
“Shut up and get in,” I growled.
In a mood like I was in, I had seen grown men nearly piss their pants. This woman stepped closer and spat out, “Don’t order me around.”
“Are you shittin’ me? After the stunt you just pulled, I should take you over my knee and paddle your sweet ass. Now, do as I say,” I demanded.
Her eyes widened. “You wouldn’t actually do that, would you?”
“Sweetness.” I barked out a humorless laugh. “The only reason I won’t is because you aren’t mine. But mark my words; I won’t hesitate whether or not you are mine if you ever do something that irresponsible again.”
“I thought I could handle it.” She took a step backwards as her lip began to tremble.
“Ha! You thought wrong,” I pointed out.
That was when she climbed into the SUV of her own accord, but she wouldn’t look at me. I gave my driver the go ahead to take us back to my place. I’d be damned if she spent the night away from me. Part of me didn’t trust her. The other, wanted to ensure her safety at all costs. Unsure of which one was stronger, I inquired, “Are you hungry?”
She shook her head, still refusing to turn towards me. Hell no. I leaned over and gently cupped her chin, bringing her face to mine. I was surprised to discover her eyes were bright red, tears still flowing. That particular sight did something to me. Filled with a need to comfort, I undid my seatbelt and hers. I pulled her onto my lap and offered, “My shoulder is right here. Go ahead and let it all out.”
She buried her face against my neck and did just that. After a few more minutes, she pulled back as she wiped her eyes. “I didn’t know,” she admitted. “I never would’ve gone there if I had.”
Tenderly, I stroked her cheek. “I figured that out after I railed at you. I’m—”
“You were right,” she interrupted before I could finish apologizing. Something I didn’t normally do. She continued, “It was beyond stupid. If it weren’t for you…Well, we both know what would’ve happened.”
I wasn’t fully convinced she did comprehend what those assholes were about to do. Even though I didn’t want to give her nightmares, she needed to know at least some of it. “Those men didn’t just plan to gang rape you, Lacey. They were pimps. You would’ve gone to the highest bidder.” Her head bowed. I reached underneath and gently lifted her chin, so our eyes met. “Promise me, never again.”
She attempted a nod. Not good enough. “Say the words,” I commanded.
I watched the tip of her pink tongue as it ran along her lips, before she answered, “Never again will I go to such a place without you.”
“And?” I persuaded.
She swallowed and replied, “I promise.”
“Good,” I acknowledged, before I leaned forward and brushed my lips against hers. Damn, she was so sweet. I knew I needed to stop, but then she opened to me on a moan. My resistance snapped as I devoured her mouth with mine, staking a claim I didn’t want. Yet, there was no denying that was exactly what I had just done. Mine, a feral part of me growled as I continued to take without apology. She was the first to pull away. Her breath staggered as she confessed, “I want you.”
“You should stay away from me,” I growled.
“I know. But I need your help to find Keeley.”
I closed my eyes to break the connection between us. As if that were even possible. The fire continued to blaze between our bodies, so I eased her off my lap. After I redid our seatbelts, I spoke, “You have my word. I’ll help you.”
Before I could finish, she professed, “But that can’t happen again. We can only be friends.”
“Right.” I smiled self-deprecatingly. “No matter how much I want to fuck you.”
She took in sharp breath as her eyes darkened with desire. I could’ve had her then and there. I knew it. She knew it. But that would only complicate things. So I held out my hand to shake hers. Once she placed her hand in mine, I declared, “I won’t act on my desires.”
In deep concentration she bit her lip, and then answered, “Agreed.”
How the hell I thought I would pull that off, I had no idea. Though I knew I had to try—for her sake, and mine.
