Clipped by Devon McCormack Book Review


Synopsis:

Warning: This title is erotic and contains homosexual content, graphic sex, violence, and strong language. Readers uncomfortable with rough sexual situations should not purchase this book.

Though mortals have been convinced that God cares about their souls, nothing could be further from the truth. He created the world as a gift for his lover, Satan. But when Satan left him, he decided to end what he saw as his most grotesque creation.

Satan and his army of demons are man’s only hope…

The demon Kinzer and his lover, Janka, have been sent by Satan to spy on The Raze, a gang of rogue demons who are working with God to bring about Armageddon. When someone exposes their true allegiances, the Raze clips Kinzer’s wings and murders Janka. Kinzer manages to escape. He tracks down Satan’s allies to warn them about a mole in their midst when he learns that they’ve located the Antichrist—a powerful weapon that could prevent the apocalypse. Now, he’s on a mission to protect the Antichrist and avenge his lover’s death.

Review:

5 of 5 M/M

Oh man I have never ever read a book where I could not put it down because I had to know what was coming next. I have to say this first though. This book is a MALE/MALE book and has some serious scenes in it that can be disturbing to many readers. Devon is a great author has that has taken an old story of good vs evil and God vs Satan and changed it and brought something new to the forefront and I have to say I need more.

Kinzer and Janka are angels sent from God to find out what is happening on earth. When Janka and Kinzer are caught by demons Kinzer has his wings clipped and Janka is killed. Kinzer is still on his mission to find out who is the spy is in heaven and who is causing all the issues on earth. When he finds out he can’t believe what is going on but the truth is not as easy as it looks. 

What will happen to Kinzer when the truth finally comes out?

The Collars and Cuffs Series By K.C. Wells


Synopsis:

A Collars & Cuffs Story:

Leo and Alex’s Story

Since the death of his submissive lover two years ago, Leo hasn’t been living—merely existing. He focuses on making Collars & Cuffs, a BDSM club in Manchester’s gay village, successful. That changes the night he and his business partner have their weekly meeting at Severinos. Leo can’t keep his eyes off the new server. The shy man seems determined to avoid Leo’s gaze, but that’s like a red rag to a bull. Leo loves a challenge.

Alex Daniels works at Severinos to scrape together the money to move out on his own. He struggles with coming out, but he’s drawn to Leo, the gorgeous guy with the icy-blue eyes who’s been eating in his area nearly every night.

Leo won’t let Alex’s hesitance get in the way. He even keeps him away from the club so as not to scare him. And as for telling Alex that Leo is a Dom? Not a good idea. One date becomes two, but date two leads to Leo’s bedroom… and Alex discovers things about himself he never realized—and never wanted anyone to see.

Goodreads:


Review:

This is Leo and Alex’s story and oh what a story it is. I really do not want to say too much about their story because you have to read it to appreciate the awesomeness of this series. This is the first book in the series and let me tell you Leo is a broken man after a tragedy hits him and he thinks he will never be happy again. Then he meets Alex and boy oh boy does Alex intrigue him enough for Leo to ask him out on a date. 

At first Alex denies Leo a date but soon realizes that when Leo wants something he will do whatever it takes to get it and Leo has decided after one date he wants Alex. Alex is shy and keeps to himself because he comes from a family of haters and they will not accept the fact that he likes men. His younger brother does some mean and nasty things to Alex and Leo has had enough so Leo takes Alex in and shows him a life like no other. 

Leo takes the time to show Alex what it is supposed to be like when you’re in a relationship and how people are supposed to treat you every day. At first Alex has a hard time adapting but soon Alex is understanding things differently especially when Leo introduces him to his BDSM club called Collars and Cuffs. Alex learns a new way of life and accepts it and embraces it with open arms. It is not easy being with Leo and Alex has some family drama as well but when the two of them collide together in a scene it is true love in its purest form.

Synopsis:

Collars and Cuffs: Book Two

Christmas is a time for goodwill to all, but Collars and Cuffs co-owner Thomas Williams receives an unexpected gift that chills him to the bone. A Dom from another Manchester club asks Thomas for his help rescuing an abused submissive, Peter Nicholson. Thomas takes in the young man as a favor to a friend, offering space and time to heal, but he makes it clear he’s never had a sub and doesn't want one.

Peter finds Thomas’s home calm and peaceful, but his past has left him unwilling to trust another Dom. When Thomas doesn't behave as Peter expects, Peter’s nightmares begin to fade, and he decides he’d like to learn more about D/s life. A well-known trainer of submissives, Thomas begins to teach Peter, but as the new submissive opens up to him, Thomas finds he cares more for Peter than he should. Just as he decides it’s time to find a permanent Dom for Peter, they discover Peter’s tormentor is still very much a threat. With their lives in danger, Thomas can’t deny his feelings for Peter any longer. The question now becomes, can Peter make it out of the lions’ den alive, so that Thomas can tell his boy that he loves him?

Goodreads:


Review:

This is the story of Thomas co-owner of Collar and Cuffs and Peter an abused submissive. This is the second book in the series and to say it started off with a bang is an understatement. We start off by meeting Peter who is an abused sub and being rescued by one of Thomas’s and Leo’s friend.

When Peter comes to Thomas he is shy and cowards at everything. He does what he is told and he does not give Thomas any problems but Thomas soon understands that Peter thinks all subs are supposed to act like salves instead of subs that choose to have a Master. As a sub the sub has all the power because they can say yes or no and choose what scene they will participate in and Thomas wants to make sure that Peter knows this.

Soon Peter decides after reading the sub handbook he really wants Thomas as his Master. Only one problem Thomas does not want a sub. He is semi-retired and he does not want to teach Peter because he thinks he is too old for Peter. But Peter is determined to have Thomas as his Master and he does whatever he has to get Thomas as a Master.

Will Thomas give in and become Peter’s Master…… or will Peter be Master less?

Review:

Oh Holy Baby Jesus KC Wells is a brilliant author! Okay this is the fourth book in the series and let me tell you I have never laughed so hard and cried so much reading a book. Gareth and Andrew’s story is so amazing that you can’t put the book down. I mean I started reading it on my kindle and I could not put it down. I did not want to stop reading it because it had so many facets to it that I could not figure out what was going to happen the next second.

He was so heartbroken because he loved his Master and wanted to renew his contract but his Master wanted someone younger and trainable.

He stayed in touch with Leo and Thomas at first but then stopped when he realized he was not going to go back to Collar and Cuffs. So he made new friends and started stripping and kept to himself. That was until he met Master Andrew.

Andrew lived in the UK but moved to the United States with his parents. A tragedy happened to him and he decided he would move back to the UK. When he meets Gareth something sparks there between them but Andrew has been hurt and he is closed off and so has Gareth. So what happens when the two off them realize they do care for one another? Will Gareth and Andrew break through the barriers and become a couple or will they let their past hurts dictate what is going to happen to them in the end……..
