Review: The Home for Wayward Girls: Book One: Beginnings

The Home for Wayward Girls: Book One: Beginnings The Home for Wayward Girls: Book One: Beginnings by Lance Llyn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Home for Wayward Girls is a novel that delves deep into the world of BDSM. From one man's perspective, the story follows Lance, as he and his personal assistant pursue a professional and BDSM relationship. For 5 years we follow the two through their trials and tribulations that come with the unique lifestyle they have chosen. At the same time, Lance makes his dream of building a Home for submissive's who have been abused in the lifestyle. The Home is met from opposition from several in the BDSM community who invest a great deal in stopping Lance from realizing his dream.

This novel is an interesting read into the mind of a Dominant, which from past novels I've read are usually from the perspective of the submissive. This novel gives the reader a unique perspective from the mind of a man deep into the world of BDSM. Lacking in the story was how Lance prepared and performed during a scene. Including that perspective would have completed this novel. Perhaps, we'll see this in future novels.

An interesting read from debut author Lance Llyn. Congrats on your first novel!

Review: Captive

Captive Captive by Jex Lane
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Captive was the perfect name for Jex Lane's debut novel because I was completely captivated. Everything about this novel kept me engaged from the settings to the characters to the story's arc. Well done, Jex Lane!

Masterfully crafted this novel is action packed from the first page til the end leaving me craving more. Book 2 in the Beautiful Monsters series already has quite the undertaking in living up to the standard that Captive has set, but I have no doubt that Jex Lane will accomplish this task. Don't keep us waiting too long or I'll have to stalk you on social media for the release of the second installment. LOL

If there is one thing that disappointed me it was the relationship between Tarrick and Matthew I wanted more. I desperately wanted them to share their feels to each other, but I quite understand why this did not happen… yet.

You have me hooked and I will certainly be looking out for book 2. Congratulations and much success in the future.
