~ Under the Covers
Heart is part two in Joey Hill’s serial, Naughty Wishes. In part one, Body, we were introduced to Samantha, Geoff, and Chris, three roommates who have just started to explore what appears to be a BDSM focused menage. Samantha goads Geoff while Chris is away on business and Sam discovers that Geoff is the Dom she hoped for. They know the circle isn’t complete without Chris, but when he walks in to find them together, he’s terribly hurt, feeling that he was left on the outside. Part two starts as Samantha goes to comfort him.
As you can see from the review, I really loved the opening to this serial. Part two is longer and we have Chris in the picture, making this into a true menage series it was hinting at. I love that the characters aren’t all sorted out from the beginning. Geoff is clearly a Dom, but Chris is more layered and complex. He isn’t a submissive, that’s clear, but not the alpha Dom that Geoff oozes with ease. It’s also not apparent if Geoff and Chris have mutual attraction for each other. That aspect of the relationship has yet to be explored. True to Joey Hill’s style, this is a more cerebral series, with an emphasis on the budding relationships, the emotions involved, and the sexual action between these three. We certainly get to see them outside, to temper that intensity, but this is, first and foremost, a series about three people coming together and finding their way. Hill has always been a master at the dirty and emotional sex scene. There are times that I long for her more sadistic side, but I still have her amazing Vampire Queen series for that. Chris finally comes around and we get a taste of what’s to come for these three. The marker on the back scene…..you’ll have to read to find out what that means, but trust Joey Hill to never bore you with the cliche. More conflict is clearly on the horizon and I’m excited most to see how Chris handles it all. This is shaping up to be a very satisfying serial.

I’m well known to be a genre hopper, who has very few hard limits.My first real romance series was J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood and she still rocks my paranormal world, along with Karen Moning’s Fever series and Joey Hill’s Vampire Queen series.That being said, you’ll often see me reading erotic romance with a BDSM focus.I’m never afraid of dark and dubious reads a la Joey Hill, Tiffany Reisz and Cari Silverwood.When genre fatigue sets in, a witty historical romance never fails to satisfy me, and Lisa Kleypasand Sarah MacLeanare my auto-buys.My favorite series of all time is Diana Gabaldon’s Outlader saga, and I will fight for Jamie Fraser to the death ;). Much to my fellow romance readers’ surprise, I also cleanse my palate with popular contemporary reads.Romantic suspense.LGBT.Western.If the writing is on, I’ll dig in.
