The Accidental Submissive Review

The Accidental Submissive (The Mansion, #1)

by Leah J. Michaels

What’s a girl to do when fate hands her a look into her darkest fantasies? Grab on with both hands, both cuffed hands. Karen McGuven’s dangerously curious nature has gotten her into trouble before, but this time she’s hit the mother lode. Kneeling on the auction block she hears the gavel hit and SOLD just as the blood drains from her head. What has she gotten herself into now?

When Steven Edwards looks up and sees an angel kneeling on his auction block, he knows something’s wrong. Because the angel on her knees isn’t the pain kitten the auctioneer is selling. When he rescues her from a sadist, he can’t help but want to keep her for himself.

When she finds herself in the middle of a murder investigation, and possibly hunted by the Russian mob, he takes her under his protection. Keeping her close to keep her safe, he doesn’t even mind as she stumbles into his heart.


Slowly walking to the end of the catwalk she did the first thing that came to mind. Going down on her knees she put her ass on her heels, squared her shoulders, looked at the floor, and placed her hands on her thighs, palms up.That was when she realized the bidding had started. She heard the numbers suddenly slow and her heart sunk.
She done the wrong things. Oh god, what if no one bought her? And just finished that though, the bidding exploded and she couldn't keep track of the numbers as they were batted back and forth over her head. 


This was my first time reading a book by Leah Michaels. It is a introduction to the BDSM lifestyle for Karen as she was sold. She went on a business errand and ended up in a fantasy of a life time and took me with her. She did a good job portraying the characters of Karen/ Kitten. Steven or as I want to call him Sir she characterized him as a gentle man who wanted to show Karen the best part of BDSM as he could. He wanted her to fall in love with his world and protect her at the same time. Leah opened up some things about Sirs life I hope she continues with in the next book. I will be reading that !
This book is not intended for a YA reader it has few sex scene but not where it takes over the book.

Inevitable by Angela Graham Review

by Angela Graham
Pages 308
Published May 25, 2013

After experiencing a humiliating breakup, twenty-two-year-old Cassandra Clarke is fresh out of college and living a simple solitary life without any intentions of pursuing love anytime soon. When the estate next door sells, the last thing Cassandra expects is the unnerving attraction she feels for her sinfully handsome neighbor, Logan West, the young and charming single father with a playboy reputation. It’s through Oliver, Logan’s four-year-old son, who keeps popping up in her childhood tree house, that she slowly begins to catch glimpses of the compassionate and wounded man Logan has hidden beneath his strong exterior. Cassandra knows it's wrong and that she's heading for another heartbreak. Logan will never be able to give her what she truly desires…love.

The next day i awoke early and watched out my kitchen window, waiting for Logan to appear for his morning jog. By seven thirty, he walked out his front door, shirtless and gorgeous, and stared over at my house. 
I dropped the curtain in my front room, startled. I didn't want him to see me gawking, I really wasn't. Maybe a little. 
He seems to be waiting, taking his sweet time to stretch. I peeked out again as suitable as possible and caught his occasional glance back at my house. Every time he bent down to stretch another part of his toned body, I felt the image etch itself into my brain. 
Damn him.


I am rating this book a 5/5. I absolutely loved this book. It did everything i love about books it not only gave details that make you feel like you are there or wishing it was you... It pulled you in right at first making you want more. 
A story about a young lady, Cassie having her heart broke by her high school sweetheart and moving on. she moved out of the city back to the house she visited growing up, which her grandparents left to her after passing. she lived out in the country. During one of her morning jogs with her best friend she got a glimpse of the new neighbor who seem to catch her attention right away. The story is about Cassie falling in love with a young boy that lived next door who was the remarkably hot neighbors son. and in time Cassie began to like more than her new neighbors body she liked him for his company as well. Its a good book it shows the gentle heart of a guy who can also be a "playboy" at night. I can not wait to read the next book to see what happens in Cassie and the neighbors life.

For the Sake of Revenge
A Alaskan Vampire Novel

Author: DL Atha
Published Date July 2, 2013
Pages: 288
Purchase :

How far was Tamara willing to go for revenge? And who would pay the price? She didn't know as she lifted the bottle to her lips but she was about to find out. Stepping off the ferry in Sitka, Alaska was bittersweet for Tamara Semenov. A decade earlier she had abandoned her mother and high school sweetheart, Peter, to marry a man she hardly knew only to find herself in an abusive relationship. Now ten years later, she had escaped with her life but at what cost? Her mother was dead. Although the police had ruled her mother's death an accident, Tamara was convinced her estranged husband was to blame and to make matters worse, she knows she is his next target. While putting her mother's affairs in order, Tamara finds the blood of a vampire named Adrik, who as a human was falsely accused of raping a Russian heiress and ex-communicated from the Church in 1808. For the sake of revenge, he willing condemned himself to vampirism. Learning that the blood could tie the living to the undead, Tamara seeks out a connection with the long buried Adrik with the hopes of striking a deal, his freedom for her revenge. Will he be the edge she needs to outmaneuver her estranged husband or will she become entangled in a two century old web of revenge from which she cannot escape?

Her image flickered in the corner, and she reappeared one final time, a peaceful smile touching and lighting up her face in silvery shadows. Unable to stop the tears that leached from my eyes, I watched her form flickered once more then dissolved completely into a clear vapor.
The last remnants of her spirit dissipated on the air, and a numb feeling crawled through my body. I shook with the chills even as sweat pooled in my armpits. My mind danced between logic and soul. Maybe it was simply a bad dream.


The book started off slow it took me a few chapters to get into it. Once it started moving I enjoyed the book. It tells a couple stories.... one about Tamara and her life as it was and goes into how it is now. It also tells a story about a guy Adrik and how he became a vampire. this is not your normal paranormal book it is a vampire story but its not a Twilight or a Dirty Blood... it give you a older version of how Vampires came to exist  I rate this book a 3.5... I did like this book but it took me a while to get hooked. but after I got hooked DL Atha did a great job wheeling me in. I look forward in reading more of her books and hope to find out how Peter takes the surprise ending.
