​Title: Haven’s Creed                    Word Count:94,000

Genre: Dark Gay Romance

Blurb: An act of violence destroys his family and ends the life he knows. To escape his haunted past, he joins the military, where, as a sniper, he is trained to kill with precision and detachment. When a covert organization offers him a new purpose, he becomes Haven, an operative devoted to protecting the innocent when he can and avenging them when he cannot.

After ten years of battling the evil in the world, the life no longer holds the attraction or meaning it once had, and he’s ready to walk away. Then he meets Samuel, a young man forced from the age of twelve to work as a sex slave. If ever a man had a need for Haven, it is this one.

Yet nothing about this growing relationship is one-sided. Sammy gives Haven a stability he’s never known, and Haven becomes the rock upon which Sammy knows he can depend.

When Sammy reveals something about the enemy Haven has been hunting for months, Sammy fears it will destroy what they’ve built and he’ll lose his home in Haven’s heart.
My Review: This is a very dark tale of the underground world of sex, innocence lost and some of the worst crimes against humanity. There is an elite group formed for when justice fails. Our main character is sent out to rid the world of the type of scum that would get off scot-free when palms are greased. He is a professional, an assassin, he is the personification of his name Haven. Haven has always been able to take care of his targets without blinking an eye, but lately when he comes home from an assignment he feels very restless. Crimes of sexual slavery are on a rise and his handler Rook appoints him as the best man for the job.

 It is on one of these missions he finds a downtrodden, sorely abused boy named Sammy. Sammy is the most beautiful thing Haven has ever seen, even underneath all the grime and filth he is covered with. Sammy clings to Haven for dear life and it’s the first time Haven decides to use his safe house by taking Sammy with him. It soon becomes clear that Sammy is nervous around everyone else but Haven. Sammy looks at Haven as his protector. Haven calls in assistance from the people who take care of him on his downtime. The doctor gives Sammy a clean bill of health , despite him being a bit malnourished and scared of going outside. Kelly, the man who takes care of him while he is home notices how Sammy clings to Haven. He realizes that there is something between these two men right off the bat.

Sammy is very obvious about his attraction to Haven,  but Haven resists because he believes it’s just hero worship. Sammy blossoms before his eyes and in the weeks to come, it soon becomes clear that Sammy has an underlying strength to him.  He let’s Haven know that he will take care of him and ease the burdens of his mind. Haven comes to realize that he can rely on Sammy’s strength. Although Sammy has been  victimized , he definitely doesn’t portray a victim.  He is comfortable with Haven’s profession and accepts him for who he is. Sammy understands the purpose of Haven being an assassin and relishes the fact that his man is a protector for the innocent.

With every kill that Haven does,  he loses a piece more of his soul. Sammy becomes his rock, the one who puts him all back together when he comes home . Sammy is now his haven, something Haven thought he’d never find. They fall into a D/s relationship with Sammy being the dominant. It seems a bit strange at first , but it actually makes total sense. Sammy needs not to feel like a victim and he knows he will always be the strength for Haven.  Haven needs to checkout after a job and allow someone else to make all the hard decisions for him. Haven knows in his heart that there is no one else he would rather trust to take care of his heart and soul than Sammy. Their relationship is very intense and they take what they need from each other. 

It turns out that the kingpin that Haven is hunting is Sammy’s mother Valerie. Haven can’t wait to kill her, since she is the one who sold sweet Sammy and so many other kids into sexual slavery. There is no love lost between Sammy and his mother, but he fears that Haven will never be the same after this assignment.  Sammy explains that he is a mirror image of his mother in looks. He is afraid that the similarity will tear Haven apart or hinder him from doing his job.

Sammy runs away when he sees that he can’t change Haven’s mind. Haven is hurt and despondent when  Sammy doesn’t  come home. He goes off half cocked and gets himself caught in Valerie’s trap. Valerie tries to break Haven and gives him quite a few injuries,  but Haven being the professional regains the upperhand eventually. He is just about to kill her when Sammy walks in. Sammy is trying to protect his man, he takes the gun and kills his mother without flinching.

They are both safe and they go home together, but it takes almost a year for things to go back to normal. Sammy agrees to see a therapist and work through his angst and trauma. Haven proposes and Sammy is definitely ready to take his last name. It is on their one year anniversary that Sammy finally returns to his glowing  self. I give this my ratings of 4- lose the underwear.

The Firsts & Forever 9: Coming Home by Alexa Land

Title: Coming Home          Word Count: 432 pgs

Genre: Contemporary Gay Romance

Blurb:For twenty-six-year-old rent boy Chance Matthews, surviving day-to-day in San Francisco is difficult enough. Then an ill-fated road trip to Wyoming to search for his biological father throws his life into a tailspin. When a string of catastrophes leaves him stranded and desperate, help comes from the last person he’d expect. His knight in shining armor is everything he could want and then some, but Chance is sure a man like that would never want someone like him. That’s the stuff of fairy tales, and he stopped believing in those a long time ago.

My Review:  Chance Matthews has been chewed up and spit out by this thing we call life. He ran away from home when he was 14 after being abused. He has been earning his living as a prostitute on the mean streets of San Francisco since then. Although he doesnt have a good relationship with his mother, he has been diligently sending her a 1000 bucks for more than 10 yrs to help take care of his little brother.

One night after he finishes with a John, Chance’s path crosses the stoic Finn Nolan. Chance is not sure what to do since Finn is a cop and he fears being arrested. Finn is just as shocked to see Chance since he only knows him as the photographer and friend of his brother’s husband Christian. Chance tries to make a quick exit, but before he can go Finn propositions him and swears him to secrecy. Chance is still very wary , thinking that maybe he is being set up for entrapment. However, there is something in Finn’s eyes that call to him.

Although their arrangement should seem illicit and tawdry, Finn somehow makes it special. Chance tries to remain detached, but he is sucked in by the beautiful person Finn is. Finn is a virgin when it comes to man on man action, but he always makes Chance feel priceless. Chance is able to feel connected to a lover for the first time in his life. Their chemistry was out of this world.

When Chance decides to go visit his family and hunt down his biological father, he uses this as a way to cut the ties with Finn as well. He has become far too attached and fallen in love with Finn. Finn definitely doesn’t want to give up Chance and he wants to further the special connection they have between them. 

Everything turns upside down once Chance goes on his journey. He finds his sixteen yr old brother half starved and living on his own  with another  vulnerable looking sixteen yr old. He thinks he might have found his father , but the man practically threw him out. To top it all off, someone steals his beat up old car with all his possessions and money in it. He is at an all time low and feeling hopeless when Finn calls him. When Chance hears his familiar warm voice , he has a meltdown and stutters out the whole story.Finn would do anything for this beautiful man so he rushes to the rescue.

It was very emotional watching the progression between these two.  To see Chance finally opening up and trusting Finn. Also, watching Finn throwing caution to the wind and holding on to Chance and coming out to his parents and claiming who he truly is.

 Their ready made family was very interesting with two teenagers on the brink of manhood. It was lovely to watch them navigate through all the feelings of loneliness and coming to care and love each other while dealing with their trust issues. I really enjoyed this one . I give this my ratings of 5 – bring out the vibrators. 

Favorite Quotes: 1. He laid me on the floor again and spread my legs with a hand on the back of each thigh, exposing me as he pressed my knees to my chest. I moaned when he drove his tongue into me, opening me up before he slid it out again and licked my opening. He kept that up for a while as I reached down and stroked my cock, and then he sat up a bit and pulled a bottle of lube from his jacket pocket. ( Such a visceral reaction .)

2. I kept my legs right where he’d put them as he drizzled the lube over my hole and onto his hand. He pushed two fingers inside me and rotated his wrist, grazing my prostate and making me yell as a shockwave of pleasure pulsed through me. Then he slid his hand out and said, “I’m going to fuck you raw, baby .” I stopped stroking myself and raised my head to look at him. “We both got tested last week, just like you’ve been doing every six months. We know it’s safe.” ( There is nothing better than skin on skin. It definitely heightens the arousal.)

3.“Just so you know, I’m not going to hold back. We can make love some other time. Tonight, we’re going to fuck. I want you to feel so damn good and cum so hard that you forget everything but my name. I’m going to make you mine with every thrust into you, and then I’m going to cum inside you. I want you to know for an absolute fact that you belong to me. Only me. Do you have a problem with that?” (Sometimes you  just need a good hard fuck, no frills and gentle touches.)

4.He slammed into my prostate again and again, his big, thick cock filling me, stretching me, and I threw my head back and yelled as I arched up off the floor. I needed him closer. Deeper. I needed him to be a part of me. I clawed at his back, wildly, desperately, and when he yelled and came in me, I shoved his jacket out of my way and bit his shoulder, hard. All rational thought had completely fallen away. I was distilled down to sex and need and hunger, and he was, too. He fucked me like it might be our last time ever, urgently, almost frantically, pushing his seed into me with each thrust, yelling as he came in me. He dropped onto his elbows, his face inches from mine, his pupils so dilated that his eyes looked black, and told me, “You’re mine.” It was an absolute statement of fact. “Yes. Fuck yes. Yours.” The words tumbled from me. I was surprised I could talk. When he pulled out of me, his cock was barely deflated. “Fuck me, Chance.” His voice was pure gravel. ( Soooo hot.)

5. He got on his hands and knees as I fumbled for the lube and slicked my throbbing cock. I pushed a wet finger into his warm opening , fingering him roughly as I told him, “It’s going to hurt.” I was way too worked up to think clearly, let alone prep him properly. “Good.” I pulled my finger from him after just a minute and pushed my cock into his incredibly tight butt, grabbing his hips. We both moaned , and he mumbled, “Fuck yes, don’t stop.” I took him like he’d taken me, hard, fast, and rough. Our jagged yells shattered the stillness, along with the sound of my body slapping into his. My fingers dug into his flesh as I pulled him onto my cock, impaling him as he drove himself back in a steady rhythm. ( I love when it hurts sooo good, so raw , so in the moment. You can definitely feel that you’very been well and truly fucked days after.)

Tutti Fruitti Rudi by Stephanie Franklin

Title :  Tutti Fruitti Rudi              Word Count : 61,950

Genre : Contemporary Gay Romance

Blurb :

My Review :  Rudi Costa has always felt that his life is going down Shit’s Creek and he is left without a paddle. He has no marketable skills and he had to drop out of high school to provide for the one person who loves him unconditionally. His sister Penguin is five, but she is at the level of a three year old because their mother is a heroin addict. Rudi steals and prostitutes himself in order to put food on the table. He has to lock Penguin in their room so that the men who his mother whores herself for, can’t touch his beloved sister . Their mother is a waste of space who only thinks of her next fix. When she gets behind in her payments to her drug dealers, she pimps out Rudi to pay for her debts by threatening to take Penguin away.

 When Giovanni,  the biggest drug dealer collects from Rudi, it is always painful. Giovanni is a pig of a man, who loves rough sex. He brutalized Rudi’s most sensitive areas for hours without any lubrication at all. Poor Rudi can barely  walk when he is done. He is walking through the park from one such arrangement when he finds a young man who has been gay bashed. It is obvious to see that Jay doesn’t belong in this part of the neighborhood.

Jay’s family invites Rudi over for dinner as a thank you. Jay’s father David  doesn’t seem to like Rudi right off the bat. After a lavish dinner where Rudi sits uncomfortably wondering about his table manners, he bolts as it becomes clearer that they are from two separate worlds. Rudi starts ignoring all of Jay’s texts. It isn’t until Rudi’s mom kicks him out with his little sister, that he sees Jay again. Jay swoops in like an avenging Angel and gets his family to care for  sweet little Penguin temporarily.  Rudi makes a more pronounced effort to sort his life out so he can take care of his sister on his own. 

Giovanni and Rudi’s mom get there just desserts when Rudi steals their drug money. It is not an ideal plan , but he decides to make the most of a bad situation. Rudi rents an apartment and set it up so that Penguin has her own space. Jay and Rudi decide to celebrate and take their relationship to the next level after a night of teasing and touching at a dance club.

It is at this point that I felt like I  was dropped off a cliff unexpectedly.The novel just left off at this point and I felt that there were a whole lot of  unresolved issues.  I was left feeling very unfulfilled. I think it could have been fleshed out by a few more chapters and it would have blossomed into a great novel. Rudi is that tortured character  who is very lovable and you  can empathize with him. I give this my ratings of 3 –  it was ok , give it a try. 

Gemini by Clancy Nacht & Thursday Euclid

Title :  Gemini                          Word Count : 67,865

Genre : Contemporary Gay Romance

Blurb : Cass Manning is a serial monogamist, grad student, and identical twin to Paul, a drug-addicted prostitute. Fleeing his unfaithful boyfriend, Cass returns to Houston after years away only to be drawn into danger before he’s out of the airport.

When Paul dies under suspicious circumstances, Cass must rely on one of Paul’s clients, Kilo, a mercenary willing to protect Cass in exchange for sex. Together they have a chance to bring justice to the corrupt heart of Texas’s political power structure, but Kilo’s mysterious past may tear him from Cass when he needs him most. Even if they outlive their untouchable adversaries, how does a polite academic find lasting love with a soldier of fortune?

My Review : Kilo the mercenary and Cass the scholar met at a very turbulent time in Cass’s life. Cass runs away from England after finding his boyfriend having sex with his female best friend.  After he steps off the plane, Cass is accosted in the airport’s washroom  by someone who calls him by his twin’s name. Cass runs off to warn his brother about the incident. What he is faced with when he sees his twin brother is a washed up mirror image of himself. His twin brother Paul is a belligerent junkie prostitute who seems to have an axe to grind with Cass. Feeling nostalgic and very lonely, Cass reaches out to Paul trying to reclaim the closeness that they once had in utero. Paul is very messed up and seems to be embroiled in some life threatening drama. 

Paul seems frightened and  calls the only person he knows who can  protect him, Kilo. Kilo is one of his clients who is also a hired mercenary. Paul decides he needs a hit of heroin before he can explain the situation to Cass. It is very unfortunate that as soon as the heroin reaches his veins, he starts having convulsions and dies in his brother’s arms. Cass is paralyzed with fear until he hears a banging on the front door.  Before he can get to it, the door opens and their stands this sexy dangerous stranger who is none other than Kilo. 

Kilo scoops Cass up in his arms and before he can grasp what is happening,  they are in a liplock so scorching, all he can do is feel. Kilo sets Cass’s blood on fire and he doesn’t try very hard to resist. He is at the lowest point in his life after so much loss and he really needs the passion to make him feel alive again. Kilo is rough and crude and treats him like the experienced prostitute that he thinks he’s dealing with. It’s exactly what Cass needs, something different that he’s never had before, a walk on the wild side.

They enter in a bargain where the use of Cass’s body offers him Kilo’s protection. It soon turns into more when they embark on dangerous missions to find out the truth about Paul’s death and to maintain Cass’s safety. Coming together for them is a meeting of two lonely, desperate souls. Cass pushes and prods until he sparks certain emotions in Kilo that has long been buried.

Cass and Kilo have a symbiotic relationship where they affirm their need body and soul for each other. The plot thickens and they realize they might be in over their head. The truth leads them to government corruption and ghosts from Kilo’s past collides with the nightmare within which Cass is embroiled. There are life threatening scenarios where Cass has to be the aggressor and do unspeakable things to protect the new love of his life. Cass knows that Kilo is well worth it. A new identity is reborned for Kilo where he can embrace the pure , innocent, intoxicating love that Cass has bestowed upon him. This was a well written,  intriguing storyline that had me on  the edge all the way to the end. The chemistry between Kilo and Cass was extremely volatile and explosive. I give this my ratings of 4 – lose the underwear. 

Favorite Quotes : 1. His straining legs trembled in the confined space, and his lungs burned for oxygen. He shuddered and tapped Kilo’s side frantically. Kilo kept sucking, lips moving swift and determined along Cass’s shaft as he pulled his cock from Cass’s mouth. One of Kilo’s legs shifted, knee pinning Cass’s chest. He took Cass deep into his throat, sucking like his life depended on it. Cass hit him again, one last warning, but he couldn’t hold back. He filled Kilo’s mouth, hips jerking helplessly as Kilo’s fingers milked Cass from the inside to force out every drop in Cass’s body. Kilo’s guttural moan as he swallowed was almost as satisfying as release itself. (We don’t always know what we can handle sexually,  until the right person comes along and pushes our boundaries.  I would definitely let Kilo push my boundaries. I’m a sucker for bad boys 😉.)

2.A moment later, Kilo’s entire frame convulsed above Cass. His meaty cock twitched in Cass’s hand, pulsing as semen shot from its tip. Cass shut his eyes as he had in the alley and aimed Kilo’s cock to spend all over his face. Rain dripped down his cheeks and chin, and he basked in the warmth as it dribbled over his lips and down his neck. Cass tried to control his breathing, but he couldn’t still his trembling and twitching. Once the bliss faded and he began to recover, Kilo turned and kissed away his cum, cleaning Cass’s skin tenderly. Only then did Cass open his eyes and process what they’d done.( Sex can get messy, the messier the better 😉.)

3. When Kilo turned Cass around, he could process only the chill of his neglected erection. Then Kilo pried his cheeks apart and gently nibbled Cass’s opening. It felt experimental at first—quick, darting flicks of tongue and soft little kisses. Then Kilo shoved his entire face hard against Cass’s ass and forced him open with his tongue. Cass grabbed the sink for balance and spread his legs, giving Kilo room to move. No one had ever done this to Cass; he’d never even asked. Bliss overwhelmed his embarrassment. (Kilo opens up a new world of sexual delights for the sweet innocent Cass.)

4. Cass spit on his fingers and reached behind him. He brought up one leg and eased a finger inside, biting his lip as he tried to relax. The position was awkward and he was sore, but Kilo’s lusty gaze motivated him. Cass added another finger, closing his eyes as he eased onto it…… Kilo spread Cass’s cheeks and worked his tongue around Cass’s fingers. It felt dirty, but Kilo treated instincts as pure, natural instead of wrong. When Cass was with him, it was hard to remember why he’d ever thought otherwise. (Cass has become enlightened and is now embracing his sexual side with great pleasure.)

Sex & Mayhem 2:The Devil’s Ride by K. A. Merikan

Title :  The Devil ‘s Ride              Word Count :125,000

Genre : Contemporary Dark Romance

Blurb : — You don’t fuck with the club president’s son. —

Tooth. Vice President of the Coffin Nails Motorcycle Club. On a neverending quest for vengeance. The last thing he needs is becoming a permanent babysitter for a male hooker.

Lucifer. Fallen. Lost. Alone.

After a childhood filled with neglect and abuse, followed by his mother’s suicide, Lucifer set out into the world alone. There was nothing for him out there other than taking it one day at a time. As the bastard son of the Coffin Nails club president, Lucifer never got much fatherly love. So when the Nails show up at the strip joint Lucifer works in, the last thing he expects is to be put in the custody of Tooth, the Nails Vice President famous for his gruesome interrogation techniques. The man proves to be the sexiest beast Lucifer has ever met. He’s also older, straight, and an itch Luci can’t ever scratch.

Tooth’s life came to a halt twelve years ago. His lover got brutally murdered, police never found the perpetrators, and all leads were dead ends. To find peace and his own justice, Tooth joined the Coffin Nails, but years on, he’s gotten nowhere with the case, yet still lives on with the burning fire for revenge.

Babysitting a deeply scarred teenager with a talent for disappearing is the last thing on his bucket list. He promised himself to never get attached to someone like him again. To make sure the openly gay boy is safe in the clubhouse, Tooth is stuck keeping an eye on him. The big, blue, attention seeking gaze is drawing Tooth in, but fucking the president’s son is a complete no-go, even when both their feelings go beyond lust.

What Tooth doesn’t know is that Lucifer might hold the key to the closure Tooth so desperately needs.

WARNING Contains adult content: a gritty storyline, sex, explicit language, violence and abuse. Inappropriate use of dental tools and milk.

My Review : It’s glaringly obvious that Luci is just a scared little boy. He tries to act tough, like he can take care of himself but it’s just a facade. Luci is found by Tooth the scary tough as nails vice president of the Coffin Nail biker club. Luci is hiding in the back of the club where he works as a stripper, when he meets the handsome, dangerously sexy biker. Luci is taken outside for questioning,  when the president of the club realizes that the male stripper Luci is in fact his illegitimate son. My heart goes out for poor Luci when his father just pawns him off to Tooth telling him to deal with him and keep him a secret so that his wife won’t find out.

Luci has been on his own for quite some time and he uses his sexuality as an armour to shield him from all the ugliness in the world. He is surrounded by a bunch of bikers for whom his sexuality might be a problem. He knows that the only thing stopping them from kicking his ass is because he is the president’s son and because he is under the protection of Tooth, a  man who is  known for  his  tooth taking abilities as a means of torture.  Luci tries to weasel his way out of his situation by offering Tooth his body. Tooth shows him right there and then , who is in charge giving him a spanking that was not geared for sexual pleasure. This awakens a certain longing in Luci and as much as he is embarrassed , he is also smitten by Tooth’s rough handling. Tooth does nothing to encourage Luci’s crush and he treats him more like a friend than anyone else at the compound.  

Tooth and Luci builds a friendship based on trust and rules   which enabled Tooth’s protection and Luci’s promise to not run away. This relationship builds slowly and borders on domesticity without being sexual, but there is an undercurrent of sensuality and an undefined instinctual deep-seated emotion between the two. Tooth is inherently violent because of circumstances that has shaped his life and worldview, but he is not cruel. Luci brings out a softness and a level of care that Tooth has never shown anyone else. Tooth realizes that he is having feelings for the much younger Luci, but he tries hard to suppress it even though Luci flirts at every given opportunity. Tooth becomes a disciplinarian, spanking Luci as punishment when he is bad. He doesn’t realize that Luci is almost in love with him and feels connected through this discipline, until he pushes Luci so far away that he is emotionally hurting. Tooth really hates that he hurt Luci emotionally and he sees that he can no longer deny his sexual feelings for the sexy little  submissive twink who is definitely his type. 

They both give in to their attraction and they start having sex, really hot sex 😉. Tooth is warm,  loving and playful with Luci,   they just need to keep their relationship a secret from everyone. This becomes really hard for Luci who is exuberant in his joy at finally getting the man who he is so in love with. Luci tells his brother that they are having a relationship and it almost causes a fight between the two club members.

When Tooth gets shot and Luci’s brother dies during club business, Luci’s stepmother blames him for her son’s death and convinces him to run away. Tooth is out of his mind when he wakes up in the hospital to news that Luci has run away. Luckily,  he had given Luci a necklace armed with a tracker. They traced Luci to a bus station where Tooth being overcome with emotion kissed Luci passionately in front of all the club members. Needless to say,  everyone is shocked and appalled.  Surprisingly, it goes not too bad since Tooth is a bad ass and can take on any member of the club in a fight. Luci and Tooth are able to show their love and affections openly and it is certainly a beautiful sight to see. I’m really in love with this series, the characters and plot are developed beautifully.  It is crude, raw and it creates a visceral reaction within me . I give this my ratings of 5 – bring out the vibrators. 

The Firsts & Forever 3: In Pieces by Alexa Land

Title : In pieces                                 Word Count : 406 pgs

Genre : Contemporary Gay Romance

Blurb : Twenty-year-old Christopher Robin Andrews lives his life in pieces. He’s a student. An artist. A loyal friend. And he’s had to make a living as a prostitute. He’s barely holding it all together, surviving day by day.

But then an unexpected encounter with a gorgeous man at a Christmas party shakes up his world. The last thing Christopher’s looking for is love. But sometimes, even if you’re not looking for it, love finds you anyway. Ready or not.

NOTE: This erotic gay romance includes explicit language and graphic sex between men. For ADULT READERS ONLY.

My Review : Christopher Robin is such a sweet guy who has had a shit for luck kinda life. Even though he is a prostitute,  there is purity and sweetness about him that is so genuine. He doesn’t really open up all that much , but there is just something about him that draws people in. He’s surrounded by people who love him and want to take care of him. However, he tries to put up a wall and tries to act like he is an island for fear that he will become dependent on his friends. For him , this is the worst thing that he could possibly do, because he has had such disappointment in his previous experiences. Kieran is the perfect guy for him, who would love the chance to cherish him. Kieran is a virgin and he is only too happy to put his trust in Christopher,  to allow him to bring him forth in the art of  hot sexy manlove. Oh boy, it was oh so sexy. Once again Ms. Land burns up the sheets, the walls and floors with the  wild sweaty  monkey sex  between the rentboy and the cop. I loved how they took their time in exploring Kieran’s submissive side. Who knew it was so fun being submissive. Makes me wanna try my hand at being submissive ;), mm mm food for thought. OMG, Nana is such a gangsta. Nana is back and she is better than ever, brandishing her pistol around and pistol whipping even bigger gangstas,  who knows if this one is real.  It would take a real idiot to try to find that out ;). Once again she proves to be a great ally to her Gay homosexuals (her words, not mine). Nana is an absolute gem and everyone would be so lucky to have someone like her in their lives. Another great addition to the series. This one gets my ratings of 5 – bring out the vibrators.
