✦✦ KFF’s 5 ★ Review by Tracey Lou Parker✦✦
Again I was looking forward to delving into the mind of poet and author, Ethan Radcliff, and more so as this would be the first full-length novel of his that I was about to read.
This story depicts the life of a U.S. Marshal and a former New York City police officer, Dominic Esposito, and the lady in his life, Shauna Maloney. As a U.S marshal, many of his duties include being responsible for prisoner transport, the protection of officers of the court, and the marshal’s service which runs the witness protection program.
Dominic Esposito is forty-five years old, born to an Italian mother and father and lives for his job. As a young child, he had always wanted to be a cop. He believed in justice, respect and a code of honour. The perfect requirements for the job he does.
One ex-wife who after twenty years, decided she wanted out. He’s spent years putting his own feelings aside making his wife happy; to give his son a stable home. Now his son is old enough, it’s time for him to move on and explore.
Shauna Maloney is beautiful. This sexy redhead owns her own dress shop; is totally open about her sexual appetite, her kinkiness. She’s helping Dominic explore a side of himself that he had always known was there but was afraid to act upon. Shauna is a submissive and Dominic has a dominant nature, so their two worlds would collide perfectly.
Throughout this book, Dominic is involved in two cases. One babysitting a gangster called Charlie who is giving evidence and needing protection.
The second case shows you how Dominic’s mind works as a profiler. Gathering evidence and witness testimony to determine a behaviour pattern, as well as developing a physiological portrait of the perpetrator is what he loves doing best. Yes, I confess to being a fan of Criminal Minds!
Dominic’s natural instinct for this was spot on and the criminal involved was eventually apprehended but not without consequences.
There is a part of this book that I haven’t gone into too much detail about. This involves the wellbeing of Shauna whose safety has been compromised by a gentleman that has taken a liking to her. As a reviewer, I like to leave something for the reader. But be aware… the twist and turns of this book will keep you entranced from beginning to end.
Ethan Radcliff. A full length novel, in my opinion, will bring out the best in an author. You didn’t disappoint. Your story flows well, the subject of BDSM; perfectly inserted. You have shown me that you are more than knowledgeable about law enforcement which comes across perfectly. Thank you for a most enjoyable read. I look forward to reading more of your works. Five well-deserved stars .
” I suppose you’re going to turn me over your knee and spank me?” He could see the fire in her eyes and he was aware that her statement was a challenge.
“Are you putting ideas in my head?” he said running his hand down her slender throat to the top of her full breast. “Stop trying to get involved in the case I’m working on. I told you this case is definitely off limits. You never listen.”
“Did it ever occur to you that maybe I could be of some help to you?”
“Do you want to help me?” His voice was low and sadistic. One of his hands cupped her breast, she gasped. His thumb rubbed the nipple though the flimsy bra she wore. “You know what I like,” he said moving his body in on hers. “You’re fine Shauna, the best piece of ass I’ve ever had, but this relationship has boundaries and that boundary is my job. Do you understand?”
“Fuck you, Esposito,” she whispered.
He was fast and strong. She was over his knees in record time. One hand held her down and the other tore at her panties. Before she could protest, his large strong hand came down on the cheeks of her ass. Whack!
“Ouch! I was kidding you bastard!” she screamed.
“I’m not,” he said as he grinned and felt the blood rush down to the base of his cock. “In fact I’m rather enjoying this.” His hand came down hard again.
“Ouch!” she screamed again. “Stop, Dominic stop.”
“First tell me you’re going to stay out of my business. You knew I was a U.S. Marshal when we met. I read you the riot act. Yet you defy me at every turn.”
He ran his other hand over the red marks on her cheeks. She moaned. His fingers massaged her gently and then found the crevice to her pussy. She moaned again.
“Oh, shit Dominic, oh shit,” she said as two of his finger entered her. She raised her ass and his fingers pushed into her deeper. He bent his head and kissed the red marks his hands had left. She spread her legs.
Ethan Radcliff has been writing stories since he was a kid. He loves creating and tried his hand at art, but felt he wasn’t good enough. Through high school he wrote erotic stories,
kept them in a notebook and let a few of his girlfriends read them. He then began writing poetry, which he kept to himself, because most of his poems were based on erotica. His brain never stopped. He became serious about writing erotic romance stories a few years ago and wondered how hard it would be to break through the barrier as a male erotic romance writer.
He delved into the world of BDSM and took a personal journey through the lifestyle, which aided in his writing.
He’d been a face book user for years. He never saw anything interesting until he began to see all the writers and then some poets posting their erotic prose. Men who were writing erotic romance began to crop up. He watched and then began to post a few poems here and there. The response was good and then better. He was being noticed.
He can see a picture and write a poem. He can see an attractive women and conger up a sexy scenario. The jiggle of a full ass or heavy breasts can get him going. His mind is always is on an attractive face or body.
His thanks go out to Bitten Press LLC and the two lovely women who run it, for goading him on, telling him to go for it and he did.
His first short story is The Taming of Molly Jenkins. It’s hot. Is it based on personal experience? All he can answer is, perhaps. The next short story is The Wait, Britt’s undoing. There will be more. He has a paranormal erotic romance series, Desires of Blood which at the moment is six books strong. Stay tuned for some historical, contemporary and fantasy erotica from him. Yes, and he will continue with some great stories including some BDSM adventures. He has one book of erotic poetry published; it has been an amazing success.
Follow Ethan Radcliff as he continues to entertain you. He can write any genre and intends to broaden his scope as an author in 2015.
His thanks go out to all his readers. Without them he’d be still be writing notes in his composition notebook, waiting for that right moment. You made it happen for him.
