Can stand beautifully well by itself It involves three of my favorite things tattoos Irish accents and sexy DominantsMischa Kennon is a tattoo artist that is visiting Seattle for her friend Dylan s wedding while working on the possibility of opening a new tattoo shop She is well aware of Dylan s and her fiance Alec s BDSM relationship and has had some playtime of her own on occasion She is strong and independent and oesn t mind trying out new things for the sake of excitement Too bad most guys have not managed to be all that exciting to her A tragic past of watching her mother Fundamentals Of Agriculture Vol -2 deal with endless heartache while she and her sister were abandoned left Mischa hesitant when it comes to relationships Thus having some fun with one of Alec s Dominant friends for some uick play time without strings attached is certainly not out of the uestionConnor Galloway is one of Alec s close friends Hanging out in the same BDSM circles as many of the wedding guests Connor is not afraid to admit that he is a Dom as well as a sadist at heart When he lays eyes on Mischa and her beautifully tattood body he sees not just a woman but someone who may enjoy his brand of pleasure with a bite of pain infused With some flirty and very suggestive introductions Connor charms his way into an evening with Mischa and shows her how Dominant he truly can be When it is clear that one night is not enough they both find themselves in a whirlwind of emotions mixed with pleasure and pain that bring upifficult memories of the past and certain fears for the future Can Mischa learn to trust a man with her heart Can Connor learn to finally trust himself You will have to read this magnificent mindbending love story to find outEve Berlin has created two painfully To Heal a Wounded Heart deep characters that you will fall in love with I simply fell for these tortured souls and felt as though I was right there with them throught the story Connor with his heavy Irish accent and Dominant presence hovers over you throughout each page He gives a strong and safe feeling that makes you feel like the one being cherished as you follow the story His command over Mischa is overwhelming and you simply melt with her every time he goes Dom I also enjoy that the story has a little bite to it I have read so many BDSM stories where they touch on spanking and maybe a toy or two This one moves into pinching and clothespins and rather than overwhelming the reader with it it isone in such a way that you can t help but be curious In addition the sadist enjoys his own pain in the form of a tattoo Having uite a bit of ink myself I can attest to the fact that it is an almost meditative experience when that much pain is involve Narcissistic Abuse Recovery due to a large piece Eve Berlin turns it into a very sensual experience and shows how personal even a tattoo can be I love that both Connor and Mischa share in their pleasure and pain The passion and magnetism these two characters have for one another is beautifully written and sexy beyond belief Mischa s response to Connor isreamy and when he pushes her beyond her comfort zone it is as if you are in that subspace state with herSuch a beautiful sensually sadistic story that one simply has to savor when reading Each page is like the most sinful Pure and Simple Politics: The American Federation of Labor and Political Activism, 18811917 dessert that you know you shouldn t have but you also know you can t resist Ion t know what else to say except WOW Eve Berlin you have made me a fan and I can t wait to read DiDi s two centsTwo words FREAKIN AMAZING This review was posted at Under the Covers What can I say I m a sucker for tattoos hot sex sexy accents and kinky fuckery And this book was all that and then some I have not had the pleasure of reading this series before and I feel now as if I ve been missing out Turns out I found this style of BDSM book a lot like the Wicked Lovers series by Shayla Black or even a bit like the Sweet series by Maya Banks but without the suspense element It may not be a true 100% representation of the BDSM lifestyle as other books like to put it but it s BDSM in a sensual way that will raw readers in make them feel comfortable and maybe even want to explore someLets start with Connor Ohhhh but this man is hot Irish yes accent and all and with sexy as hell tattoos Dominant to the bone of course He s an artist both as profession and hobby Knows how to have a good time and take care of his girl Of course he has to have issues and baggage His is the classic I will turn out like my father so I on t want to fall in love and be with someone because I ll hurt them I was happy that even though the issue was there he Will Teach for Food Academic Labor in Crisis Cultural Politics didn t make it such a bigeal to the point that it ruined the build up of the relationship or got annoying Did I mention he s the type of Dom I like to find Mischa is exactly the type of heroine I normally like *to read about Outgoing independent sociable goes for what she wants A talented tattoo artist *read about Outgoing independent sociable goes for what she wants A talented tattoo artist also has the same issue as Connor Her mom had the bad luck of falling in love and getting pregnant twice by ifferent men who left her soon after she either gave birth or got pregnant But she kept falling in love and getting hurt Mischa swore she would never love and become her mother Only flings for her She id get a bit on my nerves with this issue because in my opinion with a little common
sense this is something that feel people should overcomeMischa is in town this is something that I feel people should overcomeMischa is in her best friends wedding and this is how their whirlwind romance takes place It goes from 0 to 100 the first night they meet and pretty much stays at that fast pace throughout the whole book You on t see me complaining Even though it was so fast I thought the connection was instant and everything they Academic Capitalism and the New Economy Markets State and Higher Education did and when theyid it felt right and appropriate instead of rushed I was so enthralled with the story I almost read this book straight through if it wasn t for a minor interruption I Scalia V. Epstein devoured itThis isefinitely an author I ll be reading of I need to read about the Pleasure Dome Club and the couples that made cameo appearances in this book I m sure they ll have me Material Alchemy drooling as wellFavorite uoteIon t need you to be perfect I just need you to be yourselfARC provided by publisher I thought it was very good for this genr. Ttles before surrender It’s all fun and games in the BDSM Pleasure Dome Club until Mischa realizes Connor could master her heart If she gives in to esire will it be too much to handle or will it open her to a kind of love she never thought possib. ,

Review courtesy of Dark Faerie Talesuick Dirty An attraction that sparks an agreement a no strings attached affair exploring BDSM tendencies only to find something going beyond something eeper Opening Sentence Mischa Kennon was a perfectionist The Review With the renewed popularity of erotica I was intrigued to read Temptation s Edge by Eve Berlin also known as Eden Bradley From what I ve read of Berlin she writes Basics of successful agriculture in the tropics darker angst filled erotic romance filled with BDSM scenes and torment The blurbs on the back of the book use words like edge and temptation luring the reader into what I think is a romanticized version of BDSM I couldn t wait to visit the world that Berlin created especially stopping by her BDSM club the Pleasure Dome Temptation s Edge is an engaging story written superbly and oozes with sexuality Mischa Kennon is a tattoo shop owner and artist residing in San Francisco Mischa is spending a few weeks in Seattle to help her best frienduring the beginning stages of wedding planning While there Mischa plans to branch out and open a second shop partnering with a long time college and close friend What she Regenerating Agriculture: Policies and Practice for Sustainability and Self Reliance doesn t expect is an instant attraction to Connor Galloway a sexy Irishman who is a self employed artist Based in Seattle Connor is also one of the groom s best friends not only sharing coincidences in residence but also in their sexual activities The attraction between Mischa and Connor spark an agreement a no strings attached affair exploring into Connor sominant tendencies and into Mischa s undiscovered submissive needs What they They Hear Me Crying Now!
