Brought To His Knees by A.M. Griffin, Amy Ruttan, Anya Richards, Cynthia D’Alba, Danica Avet, Jennifer Kacey, Lynne Silver, Sabrina York, Sayde Grace, Tina Donahue & Felice Fox with Giveaways & Other Fun Stuff~

Firstly – let’s start with the anthology that EVERYONE who enjoys romance should grab while they can!  I’ve read several collections this year *whew* and this is one of the best I’ve found. Additionally, the authoresses of this series have been featured on the USA Today Blog and several of the ladies have been popping up around the blogosphere with guest posts and giveaways. In fact, Sabrina York was here on release day – and if you look at this link here you will see some of the participants for this release.

Book Review:

Eleven romance stories with a touch of something for everyone, most of all stories with flashes of heat and kink sure to please romance lovers who want a little ‘something extra’ with their reads.  A great opportunity to find new authors to read, and to check in with familiar favorites…

While each of these stories held something yummy, there is a LOT to read – so forgive if the reviews are brief-ish.  I’m simply following synopsis order, each story will have a star & flame rating. button no words
A.M. Griffin ~ Dark Wolf Enterprises ~ 3 Stars, 3 Flames
The PNR / Shifter story in the mix, Griffin brings us Trudy and Kristof.  I liked Trudy’s quirkiness, although I found Kristof to be far more ‘puppy dog’ and moody when not in his wolf form, his obvious imprinting and loyalties to Trudy were apparent. Feeling more like the first of a series of stories with a happy for now ending, with some unanswered questions and a nice tease in the form of brothers and a new enemy.

Amy Ruttan ~ Building Bridges ~ 4 Stars, 3 Flames
An interesting combination of two very broken people running from major change, fearing connections and reliance on anyone. Molly was an open book with her issues, William less so, but he was very much the protective caring and wiser of the two. Their relationship doesn’t instantly go to I love you’s, which made it feel more honest, even as they are both struggling against the chemistry that was palpable.  The ending of their story fit in the overall plot, even if I would have liked different.

Anya Richards ~ Three Strikes ~ 3 Stars, 4 Flames
A cop and an ex-gang member, Vincent and Kyle are both conflicted with their sexuality: neither would have a particularly easy go of it in their lives.  It was difficult to connect with these two, they were guarded for purpose of the plot, but that also seemed to carry over to my engagement in the read.  The whole “secret” element, while understandable actually seemed to drag the story to its end for me, although Richards does pack a ton of action and impact into the story.

Cynthia D’Alba ~ A Cowboy’s Seduction ~ 5 Stars, 4 Flames
Have I mentioned that I’m not one who grabs up cowboy romances? Well, D’Alba just may have changed my outlook with this scorcher that provides everything this romance reader wants: fully formed characters, grown folks without loads of backstep and dramatics, communication skills (GASP!!) and a real sense of their emotional AND physical connection. Brock is perhaps a little “too” responsible who is just learning to let go of his ingrained patterns.  Natalie is an accountant, and well, in my books anyone who deals with numbers and the IRS on a regular basis deserves a vacation romance.  And these two make the most of their unexpected adventures in a setting so well described you could picture yourself there.  This is, I know, the first in a series – I can only hope that the rest of the pairings will be as satisfying as these two.

Danica Avet ~ Born To Sin ~ 5 Stars, 4 flames
So, I really liked Taylor in this story, even if I did want to strangle her occasionally for her immaturity. She’s that girl that everyone thinks is one of the guys – you know the type: clever with cars, sporty, even a bit of a tomboy, with ZERO self-confidence in her ‘female’ side.  Sure, she’s not averse to being treated like a girl, but she’s just awkward, and a bit behind the curve. She and Sin had been friends for a while, then something changed. Taylor got some courage, and aided by watching some porn decides she will seduce him. Their relationship felt real and honest, and his secret was a huge surprise to me, and sadly to Taylor from her reaction. She needed to learn that while you can’t or don’t always agree with your friends and lovers, you do owe them the courtesy of listening and trying to see their side. Especially when your connection is so palpably electric my e-reader got steamy.  And, while I don’t want a full diet of it, you can’t help but hear that sweet southern drawl growl out those sexy dirty words….

Felice Fox ~ The Sound Of Your Name ~ Stars 3 flames 4
The most difficult one of the group for me to connect with, the premise is two people meet for silent sexual encounters.  As a fantasy scene, it could be really hot: in fact their meetings were scorching if a bit on the dream side. Both Brody and Ella needed to just open up and speak to one another in a face to face situation, although Fox writes a wonderfully telling description that presents the reader with a clear vision of the non-verbal communication, I would have liked a bit of dialogue that wasn’t ‘dreams’ or imagined.

Jennifer Kacey ~ Beneath The Pages ~ Stars 4, Flames 4
Acacia is a 30-something CEO with confidence, charisma and smarts and a tiny secret. She is being pursued by the hot movie star Kellan who has found his match in her.  The change in the dynamic here, the powerful woman with a softer and vulnerable side relentlessly pursued by the brash, confident and suave star.  No Kellan didn’t have any great insecurities but what he did show was a true interest in Acacia, a real bone-deep interest in her as a person that was only matched by the glowy balls of passion that screamed from every scene between them. You know that scene in From Here to Eternity on the beach? Yeah- that sort of steam with fireworks that we, and Kellan’s two friends get to experience…. Even though they, like us, are merely spectators….it is a show requiring a cold drink.  But – the end? It better mean there is more to come.

Lynne Silver ~ Cruising For Love ~ Stars 5, flames 3
Andi and Jonah are the centerpiece of this story, after losing touch these high school sweethearts are reunited in a very clever set-up.  Andi is convinced to take a break and go on a cruise with her friend. What she doesn’t know is this is a “themed” Whipped cruise, all centering around various BDSM activities.  I can’t even imagine not being prepared – and that is Andi’s first thought after realizing she doesn’t HAVE to participate with random men.  But, she takes a chance and when she is injured and needs to see the ship’s doctor, she comes face to face with Jonah – her high school sweetheart.  These two were so adorable together, and the humor just adds a certain zing to this story!

Sabrina York ~ Whipped ~ Stars 5, Flames 4
I adore Sabrina’s writing, so I know I am prejudiced – but her humor and snarky heroines with their deadpan delivery is a winner every time. Dane is at his best friend Cody’s stag party – and bored to tears.  Cody has nixed all the fun, and nearly strokes out when the boys tell him there is a hooker / stripper on the way.  Dane decides to get some of his very own, so he leaves to ‘run interference, and stop the girl in her tracks.  Tina Marie is thrilled to see her childhood crush, and brother’s best friend in the elevator.  Sadly, he doesn’t remember her, and he thinks she’s a hooker.  But, taking a chance – she goes with the story to get a taste of what she always longed for.  And it is off the charts hot, she expected that but what she got was so much more from the very take-charge Dane.  And, when he finally learns that he has tied up and spanked his best friend’s baby sister…..
Funny, sexy and a take charge heroine in Tina Marie this story will have you laughing out loud at the humor after the steam clears.

Sayde Grace ~ Chief Sin ~ Stars 3 Flames 3
A bit of a different and deeper story here, Bowie is struggling to right wrongs in his past while remembering all of the missteps he made to lose the love of his life.  Mavis is searching for her missing twin, and she returns to her hometown full of trepidation and angst, Bowie is there, and she isn’t sure she can face him after running years ago.  Deep with a series of life-altering events that each character needs to settle and sort out for themselves, the road to a happy ending is poignant and a bit sad, with some bright moments in memory and currently as these two go on a search for happiness stolen from them both years ago.

Tina Donahue ~ Make Me Surrender ~ Stars 4, Flames 5
A ménage story that is a tale of Dutch, Travis and Mercy.  And yes, the boys in this story do Have Mercy every way imaginable!  Dutch and Travis have a long history of friendship and sharing women, alone or together: the one rule is no commitments.  Mercy has heard of the infamous pair, and wants to see if rumors turn out to be as wonderful as the reality.  So, Mercy decides to take a job at their bar, and move into one of the available cabins.  And then the fun begins – as she manages to make herself the object of their desire, and the centerpiece of their threesome…
Hot, steamy and sexy, the friends to more is clever and creative, with solid characters that feel honest and possible.

Title in Brought To His Knees Collection: Dark Wolf Enterprises
Sub-genre: ParanormalMy moment was when I saw my husband for the very first time. Well, I should actually say when our eyes locked for the first time. He was new to my high school and I saw him from afar, but hadn’t met yet. One day I was going down the stairs and he was coming up. We were both in our own world and looked up at each other at the same time. Face to face with him and my heart sang. It sounds real cheesy but that’s what it felt like. I still remember that feeling to this day. It was as though all time stopped and I wanted to stay locked in that moment. A lot of people don’t believe in Love at first sight and I think it’s sad. Not sad that they don’t believe in it, but sad that they’ve never experienced what I have. I knew then that he was mine and 27 years later he still is.

When I was dating my DH I guess I sort of brought him to his knees. It was our first kiss and my first kiss EVER. 

He asked me “I’d very much like to kiss you now.” 

He lived 3 hrs from me, so he was heading for home after visiting me for the weekend. As he walked away after the kiss, he did a hop and clicked his heels together. LOL

Truthfully, I would say the only man I could (perhaps) claim to have brought to his knees is my hubby. When we met he was determined not to get into a relationship and yet, somehow, within a VERY short time, we were living together and have been happily together ever since. I maintain I used my feminine wiles to bring him to his knees… he says it was the cooking LOL!

Sub-genre promoting: Contemporary, Western

Wow. There are just so MANY examples I could pull from. J But I’ll go with this one. I started dating Fisherman after meeting him at a Christmas party. He was all right but I wasn’t head over heels, which is probably why he pursued me! 

After we had dated about eighteen months, I was tired of dating. Both of us had been married before (he-widower and me-divorcee), and we were old enough to know what we wanted. I wanted to settle down. Stop the dating merry-go-round. He didn’t. We had a big old telephone fight. (You know how you can say things on a phone that could never face to face? Like that!) 

So I said, “I want to get married and settle down.” 

He said, “I don’t. And if that’s what you want, then I think you should be dating men who want to get married.”

A huge light bulb went off over my head. He was right! I was wasting my time if we wanted different things out of life. So I said, “You’re right. I should be dating other men who want what I want.” And we broke up. 

One week later, he calls. “Let’s get married.” 

Yep! Brought that man to his knees. Fisherman and I have been married 30 years in November!

Well, yes, if you must know! As for how I did it… I told him to. More men are willing to drop to their knees to please a woman than I’d ever imagined! I’m always inspired by stories of sexually dominant women, full of honesty, power and eroticism. 😉

So a couple years ago I brought a man to his knees..literally.
I was still dressed for work. Dress, killer heels, jewelry, the works and I had to go to Walmart. Blah.

Walking from my vehicle toward the door and I’m digging in my purse, which seriously isn’t that big but always loses stuff. I swear it’s the Mary Poppins Bag! So I grab my list, adjust my purse on my shoulder and look up in time to make eye contact with a guy walking out of the store. Cute, around my age. I smiled, said hello.

He opened his mouth but nothing came out. Then he promptly tripped over something or his own feet or nothing at all and went down. To his knees.
Didn’t take him long to get back up, a bit red in the face, but he laughed. I walked away backwards for a few steps, smiling so big. He tipped his head at me, I winked at him, turned around and went inside.

Yes, I did fist pump myself when I made it through the doors.

No clue who he was.

Never met him before or since.

But I’ll tell you this…it’s definitely gonna go into a book somewhere.

Sub-genre promoting: Contemporary

When I was 17 I had my first serious boyfriend. I was in love as only a teenager could be for the first time. Except, I wasn’t ready for my first time. My V-card remained unstamped and I was okay with that. 

The boy I was with wanted his stamped though. He got on his proverbial knees and even used the phrase, ‘if you love me, you’d say yes.”

Glad I didn’t cave to the pressure since he found someone to stamp his card later that summer when we were at separate summer programs. I’m still Facebook friends with him.

I have only brought one man to his knees and it happened on a hot august night at 6:31 pm. It was the moment my husband held our son in his arms for the first time. This big strong unemotional engineer had a tear in his eye (that had nothing to do with the fact our baby boy had fur on his ears–that’s a whole other story).  

What I DID to accomplish this moment, well, that’s classified, but you can probably figure it out. (But it happened in a hotel room in Vegas). How ironic that many of these elements turn up in my Brought to his Knees story!

Have I ever brought a man to his knees? Well, I’d like for everyone to first know I am not a horrible person, really I try to be good, however I actually did bring one guy to his knees. And the worst part, I knew what I was doing. 

Okay, okay don’t get all mad at me, I was young and dumb. I didn’t think the guy would fall in love with me, not really. I just wanted someone to take me out and well, buy me a few drinks. Instead, the guy ended up buying me all kinds of stuff and confessing his love to me after only a few dates. I was nice and never accepted his gifts and did not run when he told me he loved me. I politely said thanks and never returned his calls. 

Oh, I’m kidding, I told him I wasn’t interested and then heard from his brother that I’d actually sent the poor guy to an institute. How was I supposed to know I was that good? Or bad? I just wanted a drink!!!

Title in Brought To His Knees Collection: Make Me Surrender
Sub-genre promoting: Contemporary menage

When I was in seventh grade, a new boy started my school. OMG, he was so
cute. Think Justin Bieber before he got strange. I really liked him but he
looked right through me. Trust me, at 13, I wasn’t a guy magnet. Still had
some baby fat, was flat-chested, wore glasses, didn’t wear makeup.

Fast forward to my sophomore year of college. By then, I’d lost the baby
fat and specs, developed, wore makeup and looked pretty fine. I was
waiting in this ginormous line to sell my freshman year books (needed the
$$). He was behind me in line. Recognized him immediately. He didn’t
recognize me – I could tell when our eyes met. He got all friendly,
flirting and stuff. Told me his name.

I told him mine. He stared at me like he couldn’t believe it, then got all
flirty again, asked what I’d been up to all those years and suggested we
get a burger while we talked about old times (yeah, like we’d had any). I
smiled sweetly. Not at him. At my boyfriend who’d just sold his books and
was coming to get me. BTW: My boyfriend was on the football team. Huge
guy. Real cute too. The look on my old schoolmate’s face was priceless.
Totally crushed.
That afternoon, for a split second in time, I’d brought a guy I’d once
idolized to his knees. It felt fine.

 

Well, if this collection doesn’t keep you up reading late into the night, I don’t know what will!

The suspicion is that they perfectly understand, but choose those moments when she’s most engrossed to once more prove who wears the pants in the house.
