Pleasure, Pain or Purpose is the story of three best friends.When everything seems perfect, that’s when a curve ball is likely waiting around the corner. Biljana Stevens’ blissful life is derailed after the sudden death of her cherished David. Now a lonely submissive, she travels the world with a crushed heart.

A contradiction all her life, Jasmin Stallworth loved Barbies; but she also loved baseball with the boys. Now an undercover cop, Jasmine has a penchant for risk: kinky risk. Will she put her career on the line and her life in danger to satisfy her hunger?

Vicky Knox and her husband Andrew were compatible, but she longed for more than a roommate. Why can’t the magic and enthusiasm always so plentiful in the early stages of a relationship, last a lifetime? Married life became mundane. Until rough sex and a password changed everything.

Together the three friends help each other navigate life, loss and love.
Oh, and kinky sex…very kinky sex.

Kindle Friends Forever 5  Reviewed by Tracey Lou Parker

Something new from the pen of Al Daltrey was sitting in my Kindle. And I can’t tell you how excited I was to read it. Pleasure is a story that features three lovely ladies. Each one with their own individuality, style and way of living. Biljana, Vicky and Jasmin. Childhood best friends who have remained close throughout the years.

Biljana: Devastated by the loss of her lover in a tragic accident. Coming to terms with the grief that she was experiencing, she shut herself off from the world. Gradually with time, the pain eased but the loss was still very much alive and nothing was making it better. Through financial gain she decides to take herself off. Change her surroundings and try to find the peace that she so desperately craved. A new country leads to new adventures which slowly brings her back to life. Mentally, physically and sexually.

Vicky: Happily married to Andrew or was she? Their physical relationship had dwindled down to next to nothing and things were becoming boring. After one heated argument, the passion between the two escalated and both were overcome by their feelings. What happened next made her toes curl! Fearing that something was terribly wrong, Vicky did the one thing I shouted at my kindle for her not to do. “Never read someone else’s emails.” There will always be something you don’t want to see; needless to say, she didn’t listen and what she finds will change her life.

Jasmin: An undercover cop who always went that extra mile for it and seemed to enjoyed it at the same time. A close encounter with a criminal awakens feelings in her that she cannot deny, and she didn’t. Even though she knew it was wrong she couldn’t resist. She was irrevocably drawn to him, he knew it and played on it. What was it that he wanted from her?

I loved the layout of this story. Getting to know each of these ladies separately helped me understand where their personal journey was taking them. Every chapter was dedicated to each of them and I was hooked. As one chapter ended, another would begin leaving me wondering what was going to happen next. The talented Al Daltrey brought insight into the workings of a woman’s mind. Love, lust and pleasure were the three main ingredients that these ladies shared. This book was well written, well thought out and well presented. Definitely a pleasure to read. Thank you Al Daltrey. I look forward to you next instalment. Five pleasurable stars!

By day I work in Marketing, which involves a fair amount of writing. Therefore, I never really had an interest to write for pleasure. When you do it all day, the last thing you want to do when you get home, is more writing. All the while, as my career progressed, so did my involvement in the BDSM lifestyle.

This interest in kinky sex started in my University years. Like most men, I loved meeting women, and especially the occasional one who didn’t mind being tied up, or blindfolded, or spanked. All sex was great, but kinky sex was more exciting, more exhilarating, and more fulfilling.

Over the years I was lucky enough to meet my fair share of submissive women. And don’t for a minute think these women were weak. Outside the bedroom they were confident, opinionated, gregarious and self-assured. However, inside the bedroom (so to speak) they wanted to feel the strong firm hand of a dominant man taking complete control.

Eventually I found the perfect partner, and am happily in a relationship.

One day, I flipped my laptop open, and to my surprise – I had an urge to write a BDSM story. Soon I had 20 pages, then 40, then 60. The novel that resulted was ‘Testing the Submissive’. The response was overwhelmingly positive, and the reviews excellent – all of which motivated me to continue writing. ‘A Condo with Two Views’ is my second full length novel, with other projects in the works. If you decide to give any of my writing a try, I hope you enjoy it!

SYNOPSIS

David and Karolina Morgan have the perfect marriage. He runs a financial empire catering to Miami’s most influential and she is the darling socialite, adored by her husband and all those that meet her.

But underneath the lavish home, expensive car and exquisite jewelry lies a darkness threatening to consume Karolina. The once vivacious fashion design student has become a shadow of herself at the hands of her manipulative husband.

Then, with the flick of a power switch, everything changes. Karolina must learn to fight back when she discovers her entire existence is one big sham, with dire consequences.

 

BEHIND HER SMILE TEASER

 

EXCERPT

What could we possibly have in common?” I mean to ask him this with disbelief, but Alec hears something else in my tone. Apparently, my reaction displeases him. I have no malice. I’m stunned to think he sees me this way.

Alec assesses me through cool eyes. “Poverty. Ambition. Fortitude. Is that enough for you?” More descriptions I cannot fathom. How could he possibly know I was raised in poverty? And those other things – it’s as if he read my life story. For some reason, he wants to talk about the person my own husband pretends never existed.
My entire body quivers. A torrent of raw, blistering pain slashes through me. All of a sudden, I want to cry.

I’m so lonely.

Being inundated with work in the absence of his brother and father, David is hardly around. And when he is at home, he is more irritable than I realized. Then there are all the society events – none of those women want to be my friend. More like my rivals to have the latest fashion and most expensive jewelry. I haven’t spoken to Dora in months. I feel like I’m losing control of my life.

Alec rises to his feet and fear rushes through me. Don’t go! I want to grab his hand and beg him to stay and tell me all the stories that made him in to the man standing before me.

“I … I don’t know what to say.”

Alec shoves his hands into his pockets. He displays his strong profile when he gazes off toward the rolling mansion on the opposite side of the Coral Gables waterway. “Don’t say anything. You’re right. I shouldn’t be here.”

This time, I find the nerve to act. Before he can stride off into parts unknown, I jump to my feet and grab his wrist. I feel it then. A connection between us that is strong enough to make me yank my hand back in stunned silence. Alec twists his neck to look down at me, his lips pressed together in a firm line.

Whatever I want to confess – whatever I want to ask dies on the tip of my tongue. Staring at the man I once thought to be the devil, I realize the truth. Alec is a mortal just as I am, flaws and all.

“I’m sorry.” I whisper the words to his throat. The words are to both of us.

“You owe me nothing, least of all an apology,” Alec scoffs. Then he stalks across the stone patio without a glance back. Limply, I collapse into the lounge chair unsure of what just happened.

*ARC received via NetGalley for an honest review. Many thanks.*

The storyline is solid and full of suspense. The characters are well-developed, the structural style an unusual one in the respect that the chapters are actually measured by timelines beginning in present day. When I started reading, I thought it was going to be told from the female protagonist’s point of view throughout so I was in for a surprise. In first person and present tense, most of Karolina’s story is narrated by her. She flips back and forth and slowly her feelings are revealed.

I must confess that I had trouble investing in Karolina. She had great ideas as to what she wanted in life only to vanish into thin air when she meets her husband to be in a whirlwind romance. I found her lacking strength of character; too naïve for her own good and her inspirations were crushed too easily. This young woman who’d had to fight to get where she got, let it all go on the insistence of a manipulating man, and this seemed to me to be wrong. She couldn’t see further than her nose. All the signs were there, so why she ignored them, I couldn’t fathom out and found disheartening. When it is too late and the damage had been done, I actually warmed to her. Saying that, I didn’t have to bite my tongue and say I told you so as her bestie went out of her way to convince her that David Morgan wasn’t all sunshine and roses.

David is a complex individual. His family don’t trust him for reasons to be divulged in the story. He’s sly, lies by omission, selfish, demanding and outright cruel. His utmost wish is to change his new wife into something she is not. He will discipline her in the acts of the upper crust etiquette by bullying her. How Karolina should behave around him and in his circles was obsessive and brought out the worst in me. So why he chose her when he could have married a woman of his same social status was one of the questions I asked. And yes, it was answered but well into the story.

I really liked the non-friendship between David and an associate he’d had dealings with; Alec Christos. Alec could see through David and was concerned for Karolina’s welfare. However, never could he have imagined the atrocities David pulled off. If I hated David with a passion, I adored Alec. The underlying attraction which he and Katrina have simmered and made me wonder if and when it would reach boiling point. Alec’s best trait was his patience. He wanted Karolina; she could only offer him her friendship. After various upsetting and nail-biting events, she grew stronger. Everything would be put into perspective and the story moved along much quicker.

All in all, I would have enjoyed this book more if the flow hadn’t been so erratic. There were a few repeated passages regarding Karolina’s feelings and unfortunately the editing was not up to scratch. Hopefully, the typos I came across are corrected before the release date. Reading Alec’s point of you view was a pleasure, but I really needed to have read his thoughts long before I did. The secondary characters saved the day for me. Loved them!

APPEALED COVER

 

SYNOPSIS

The New York Times bestselling author of the Tangled books returns with the third romance in the Legal Briefs series, a collection of sexy novels about first crushes, second chances, and the final verdict of the heart.

When Brent Mason looks at Kennedy Randolph, he doesn’t see the awkward, sweet girl who grew up next door. He sees a self-assured, stunning woman…who wants to crush the most intimate—and prized—parts of his anatomy beneath the heels of her Louboutins.

When Kennedy looks at Brent, all she sees is the selfish, Abercrombie & Fitch catalogue–worthy teenager who humiliated her in high school in order to join the popular crowd. A crowd that made those years a living hell for her.

But she’s not a lovesick social outcast anymore—she’s a Washington, DC, prosecutor with a long winning streak. Brent is the opposing attorney in her next case, and Kennedy thinks it’s time to put him through a little hell of his own.

But things aren’t exactly working out the way she planned. Brent has his sights set on Kennedy, and every fiery exchange only makes him want her more—and makes her wonder if he’s as passionate in the bedroom as he is in the courtroom. In the end, they may just find themselves in love…or in contempt of court.

**Many thanks to publisher for providing this ARC via NetGalley for an honest review**

Bellyaching laughter, messages flying to and fro while our spouses were trying their hardest to get to sleep, was to be the recipe for a night of interruptions. Recommendation. Don’t attempt to do what we did and start reading Appealed at bedtime. Unless, of course, you have a gripe with your partner ’cause this is the perfect payback! There is no doubt whatsoever that this little of gem of a read transforms into the size of the famous diamond Burton gave Liz Taylor. Why? Because it is so deliciously scrumptious that putting it down wasn’t questioned by either of us. The story just seemed to get better and better, funnier, and more complicated as we read on. Told in present from the male protagonist’s point of view, as the banter was astoundingly hilarious and in abundance, this storytelling technique used by the author was beyond our expectations.

Brent ~ “… Her bra gets snagged on an antenna of a passing car and waves majestically down the street like the flag on a diplomats vehicle from some awesome country names Titsland. Feels like I should salute it.’’

So the author has done it again! She’s brought us the perfect complement to a series which is nothing less than outstanding. Her witty ability to write the male protagonist’s traits is exactly how one would imagine a fella would think and exceedingly skilful. Now it’s Brent Mason’s story and ooh boy, if Jake was our man in Sustained, we soon changed our tune in this read.

Brent ~ If I’m jonesing for a family fix, I can swing by my friends’ houses for dinner and be the favorite uncle to their kids. All the perks, none of the obligation. Life is short – I want to live it. And I really like living it free.’’

Drop-dead gorgeous, accomplished criminal defence attorney and playboy par excellence, his sexual prowess isn’t in the slightest bit hindered by his handicap. Quite the reverse, actually. Convinced that life is too short to have a monogamous relationship, he and his therapist discuss the reasons for his wish to stay single. All his partners in Becker Mason Santos law firm are his best friends and have found their better halves. Now he finds himself on the shelf for want of a better word. Waldo! What a character and a half! We adored this guy who has more patience than a saint and comebacks so fittingly perfect for such a frustrating patient with more nervous energy that a Duracell battery.

Waldo ~ “Well, it’s apparent that you believe what you say. That you think you want this self-focused, low-responsibility lifestyle. The way Pinocchio wanted to cut his strings so he could be a real boy.”

Kennedy Randolph walks into the scenario with her boxing gloves on. Metaphorically speaking, of course. She’s ready to box Brent’s ears in a court case she is opposing as prosecutor. Why she wants revenge after not seeing her childhood best friend and sweetheart since way, way back is an enigma even for Brent. He can’t get over the change in her, either. Now here’s one hell of a sexy and successful woman, but that sweetness he remembered has been replaced with sharp retorts charged with contempt. Where did she go and why she disappeared off the face of the earth without so much as a goodbye, not only intrigues Brent, but he’s also going to have to come to terms with some very hard-earned truths when all is revealed. Oh Lord, is he going to fall off his own pedestal! Using all his manly skills in and out of the courtroom to try and win her over, was a match we really did savour. Despite having reasons for being such a bitch, we couldn’t help but side with her. So for us, it was very much like watching a spectacular battle of wits with plenty of below the belt punches outweighed with humour having us in stitches. The only spanner in the works is she never expected to still have feelings for him, however, she’s going to give him a run for his money. And Brent, sacre bleu! Enraptured, bewitched and for once in his life, not ashamed to admit it, goes out of his way to woo her.

Kennedy ~ “ It’s easy to be brave when you have Great – Grandpa’s money behind you.’’
Brent ~ “ That’s pretty presumptuous of you.’’
Kennedy ~ “ No, what’s presumptuous is thinking you can walk over here, ogle my tits and ass, and assume I won’t call you out on it.’’

Wow! Does Ms Chase know how to write freaking marvellous sex scenes. The only word we could possibly use to describe the sexual desire between Kennedy and Brent is HOT! This couple’s passion was a blast and a half of steaminess and made our temperatures rise. Oh my word, get your hands on a fan, anything that moves air. Put the air-conditioning on full-blast; take a cold shower, ice cubes, whatever! We were delighted with the special treat offered at the end of the story; liars…we were absolutely over the moon as these two lovebirds deserved everything and more besides and you gave it to them Ms Chase. You delivered, as per usual in this series, an awesome read with a few nail-biting twists and turns. It saddens us to say that this is the last book in The Legal Briefs series. Thank you for giving us more of Brent’s best friends, too. It was a joy to read how they were all getting on with their lives. This book can be read as a standalone; nevertheless, we highly recommend you reading the two previous books to enjoy the secondary characters in this one. We really don’t want you to miss out on the slightest detail. What more can we say other than BRAVO!

Brent ~ “If Kennedy’s ass were bronzed, I would prostrate myself before it and pray.’’
