Dirty Ugly Toy by K Webster 
Publication Date: January 18, 2015

Purchase: Amazon | Kobo | iBooks
Her time is over. Things are looking up.
She’s dirty and ugly. He’s wicked but handsome. Six months to toy with her. Six months of vacation and a ton of money. I’ll hurt her beyond repair. I’ve been through much worse. She’s difficult to control and doesn’t obey. I’m done submitting to anyone or anything in this life. I should hate her. I should hate him. The game has changed. I will win. Dirty Ugly Toy is a novel that blurs the lines of right and wrong, deals with abuse, contains dubious consent, and adult subject matter. If you are sensitive to violent sexual situations, the book may not be suitable for you. Some parts of this book are not easy to read and are not intended for everyone. However, those that keep an open mind and stick with it will not be disappointed. 


3.5 stars



Braxton Kennedy is back in London and he's looking for a new toy. Jessica is a woman who got off the rails and she's selling her body in exchange for some drugs. She's desperate to find the high she's looking for in order to escape reality and Brax seems to be the one who's willing to give her that in exchange for an agreement where she becomes his toy, or else his Bunny, for the rest six months.

"I'm the hunter in this story and I'm hunting rabbit."


If I could describe this book with one word I would say twisted. Two words fucked up. This story was unique in a way that made me pray that there are no people out there who would be so cruel and play with humans like they are dolls and on the other side I thought that maybe I expected him to be more cruel and he was too soft around her. So two sides of me are fighting about it.



I liked how feisty the heroine was, even though she was playing with fire at times and I was shaking my head at her. At the same time I loved these moments where she would provoke him because it was exactly where it turned interesting.


"I will make her hurt so fucking bad she'll beg to be dirty, cold and homeless again."

I was surprised with the twists and the turn of the events, especially close to the ending. It gave suspense to me and I was curious to see how things were going to develop. However, I have to point at a certain scene that had me thinking...

(view spoiler)



I do believe that if you like mildly dark reads you'll be satisfied. It's not the darkest read though, so keep that in mind if that's what are you looking for. I did enjoy the way things turned in the end and the epilogue was priceless. I did not see that coming, especially when it came to couples that were formed.

ARC was kindly provided in exchange for an honest review.

“I made you a promise, Charlie.” Mark’s already deep voice is layered with desire.
Once again, my control begins to slip. “What’s that?”
His hands drop a little lower beside my head. His lower body shifts so his knee is between my legs. I feel his arousal against my thigh.
My traitorous body shows its own awakening. My nipples hardening through the silk material don’t go unnoticed. Heat pools in my core and my breath hitches. I want him. There’s no use denying it.
“I told you I’d kiss you again. If you don’t stop me now, there’s no getting away.”
I should stop him. I need to stop him. There’s no way in hell it’s going to happen, though. I’m craving his lips again.
He gives me one second before he crushes his mouth against mine. His entire body shifts forward, and now I’m trapped. There’s nowhere to go. Nowhere to move that’s not Mark. He takes every part of my mind and body. Our hands roam each other as his tongue slides against mine. Passion ignites between us; it sets the room on fire. His fingers cup my neck and then glide down the front of my dress. His hand brands my skin as he takes his time exploring the open skin between us.
My fingers grip the lapels of his tux, holding him, molding him to me. I can’t get close enough. Our mouths stay fused as we both lose control.
Then my mind snaps.
I push back and my hands fly to my lips. They’re swollen, bruised from the force of the kiss. His hands brace against the wall. I keep my eyes downcast. I can’t believe I just did that, against the damn wall, at a ball commemorating my father.
I shift my dress, rake my fingers through my hair, and pull myself together.
“Charlie . . .” Mark finally speaks. It sounds like shouting even though it’s only loud enough for us to hear.
“That was the last time that will ever happen,” I say with no tremor to my voice. “Tonight we become partners. It’s not about whatever this is.” I shift my hands between us. “It’s about finding the information we’re both searching for.”
“And what if we find something else?”
“We shut it down. There’s no room for feelings in this world.”
Mark pushes back, giving me space. I instantly feel cold. “Okay, then. Have it your way.”
This is what I wanted, what we both need, but suddenly I wish it wasn’t. I wish I could pull him close, kiss him, fuck him, and just feel.
But wishes are for little girls.

EXCERPT

He turned toward his rescuer. “Ah, the princess pretends to sleep.” , seems I have to sleep light these days.” She released the hammer of her pistol and hung it on her brace. “I have a magical knight. Sometimes you see him, sometimes you don’t.” “But you did not sleep. Why?” “Because I could not with a man in my room.” She sounded irritated, like she really had sacrificed sleep. “For some reason, I don’t believe that was the first time you’ve had a man in your room.” He didn’t know what made him say that, except seeing her in those formfitting clothes reminded him of every time he had stood too near to her, touched her, and had to deny his feelings of wanting her. The days and nights of watching her from afar, in Cadiz, on Donato’s ship, and now here, she was the most desirable woman he’d ever seen. “I amend, señor.” This time the princess laughed. “The first time I had a strange man in my room who was not sharing my bed.” “You’ve had men share your bed.” He stated rather than asked because he was curious, having suspected the woman was…experienced. But hearing her say it niggled beneath his skin with just a tiny nip of jealously. To sleep in her bed, how would a man earn that right? A smile arrested her entire beautiful face. “Again, a position you’ll never enjoy.” He stopped walking beside her. He shouldn’t care, and knowing the Roches like he did, why would he be in the least bit curious? “Because I’m an American and you’re royalty?” She honored his halt with a spin of her own, facing him. Capitán,” she began in that thick Spanish accent. “I could have any man I desire. I have been bedded by kings, princes, dukes, and marquises. Why would I choose a barbaric common American?” Maybe it was her upturned face catching the moonlight that enticed him, or the slight curve to her lips that interested him, but it was the deep lust he saw in her eyes that made him reckless. “Because you want to.” He snagged her wrist, twisted it behind her back and brought her flush against his chest. He could feel her breathing. Her breasts pushed against his body with every inhalation in an age-old rhythm. Her lips parted slightly. He caught the flicker of her tongue as she moistened her lips—anticipating.

A TRAGIC BEGINNING Isadora Nikitas understands what it means to be betrayed. That lesson was taught to her in the prime of her life, and when she is offered a chance to exact revenge, she finds it difficult to refuse. Instead, she entrusts her survival to a mysterious vampire known only as Diomêdês, a male who wants nothing in return but to watch over her—in every way imaginable. Gifted with speed, strength, and immortality, she determines that her life will no longer be governed by the needs and wants of a mere man. She has cowered for the last time, and with her Ancient by her side, she thrives and blossoms into the most formidable female vampire in existence. But, once upon a time, like all little girls, Isadora believed in love. She believed it because she once had it. So, when it comes along a second time, she knows that it’s possible—but when you love someone, they become your weakness. Unless, in fact, they become your enemy instead… A MYSTERIOUS PAST Fulfilling your life’s prophecy should be empowering. At least, that’s what Elias Fontana always believed. But, as he stands guard over the beautiful vampire he’s taken hostage, his convictions start to crumble. Made to believe by his creators that he and two others have been designed to destroy a dangerous race, he has difficulty connecting his current reality to the woman he once loved. A TANGLED TALE TO UNRAVEL When friends become enemies and enemies become lovers, who can you trust in the webs of lies and despair? And, when your life is at stake and blood has been shed, how much are you willing to sacrifice to fulfill your destiny?

Isadora (Masters Among Monsters #2) by Ella Frank
Copyright © 2016 by Ella Frank

ALASDAIR KYRIAKOUS LOOKED over to where his human yielding lay stretched out beneath his Ancient and marveled at the predicament he now faced.             The depraved image on his bed had his cock standing at full attention as he walked closer to the scene that was unraveling. A feeding. And not just any feeding. One between the most formidable of their kind, Vasilios, and a human who he wasn’t fully convinced was human at all.             Tension filled the bedchamber, and Alasdair understood that one wrong move, one misspoken word, and the man he’d had his dick inside minutes earlier would be dead before he ever found out what he really was.             Although Vasilios was fully clothed, he was a shocking sight to behold. Covered in blood from the earlier butchery in Thanos’s chambers, he appeared every bit the savage he was. But that didn’t seem to faze Leonidas Chapel. Even naked and vulnerable as the man currently was, Leo was still enraptured by Vasilios.             Alasdair had previously suspected it, but that right there was proof positive. The sinful, wicked side of their nature, the killer instincts they possessed, intrigued this human. With every new detail Leo learned, he became more attracted and more involved. So much so that, when his life had been in danger, he’d offered them the use of him in any way they desired.             Leo was fearless.             Much like he himself had been when he had been mortal, and that made Alasdair…protective. “Vasilios,” he said. When his sire pivoted towards him, Alasdair had to tread carefully. “Yes, agóri?” Fuck, he knew that tone. It was Vasilios’s version of you dare interrupt me? “Be mindful,” Alasdair said. “He is not like other humans.” “Which is exactly the reason this must be done. This way, we will know where he is, what he is thinking, and I can bring him to me whenever I desire…” Vasilios turned back to Leo and trailed the tip of his bloodied finger along his cheek. Leo’s lips parted. “Wouldn’t that be a treat for you, human? To come to me—and for me—whenever I command it?” Alasdair’s cock throbbed under Vasilios’s sensual tone, and when Leo arched off the bed, he knew that the invitation was affecting him in much the same way. He didn’t need to verbally respond—Leo’s body was speaking for him. “You were right to keep him, Alasdair.” Alasdair climbed onto the mattress so his knees were by their heads, and when Vasilios straightened to straddle Leo’s waist, he took Alasdair’s mouth in a possessive kiss. He opened to his sire’s demanding lips, and as their tongues battled for dominance, Leo groaned underneath them. Alasdair pulled his head back and found Leo stroking his thick shaft. So needy, file mou, he pushed into his mind. Are you sure you understand what you are offering? A frown furrowed Leo’s brow, but the flush on his cheeks made Alasdair aware that, even though he might not have understood the finer details of his offer, he did understand he would get access to the both of them. “He is different,” Vasilios nipped at Alasdair’s jaw. “And I want him to be ours.” Leo was focused on the two of them, and when his teeth clenched and he gave a stiff nod, Alasdair relented. “Then that is what he shall be.” “So, you agree?” Vasilios asked as he lifted his head. “Would it matter if I said no?” When Vasilios arched an eyebrow, it gave Alasdair his answer, but his sire was quick to add, “Not particularly. However, I would prefer your acceptance.” “Then be at ease. I want nothing more than to give you what you desire.” “Ahh, agóri, you always know exactly how to please me. I shall endeavor to reciprocate the gesture. Keep him here. I shall return.” Vasilios faded in an instant, and as Leo moved to his elbows, Alasdair shook his head. If he knew his sire, he would be back in less than—“Ahh, yes”—a second. “Now, where were we?” Vasilios asked from where he’d reappeared—kneeling over Leo, minus all of his bloodied clothes, and clean as if he’d taken a lengthy shower. This was a first for them. They had shared many lovers in the past, but never had they joined with another or fed another their blood with the sole purpose of connecting their lives. And Alasdair wondered where they would go from there.  



Isadora is a terrific continuation to a great series. Ella Frank did it again. She gave us some strong creatures with or without fangs, with the sexual tension reaching high levels and the suspense driving us crazy. I loved every minute of it. The story was captivating and I easily devoured every word of it. 

"She was to be his first-sired.
 The one he’d bind his life with. 
She was the one. "



I especially have to mention my likelyhood to any past scene, I love the flashbacks, the scenes that took part in ancient Greece and we got a glimpse in Isadora's life. I was really intrigued by the Ancient who turned her, Diomedes and I felt for him. I didn't know who to root for. Both Elias and Diomedes were equal opponents when it came to their parts in Isadora's life. I may or may not had rooted more for her Ancient, but that's irrelevant ;)




I strongly recommend you to read this series if you're a fan of paranormal reads, sexy vampires who like to get it on and they don't care if it's a boy or a girl, so you get many scorching scenes either you like m/f, m/m, f/f, m/m/m etc.

A DANGEROUS ALLURE Bestowed with eternal life by the Ancient Vasilios, Alasdair Kyriakous is one of the most feared and ruthless vampires in existence. His name carries weight across all of the seven continents.
But he is a mystery to his kind, an anomaly among the self-indulgent. While he enjoys the pleasures of the flesh, he is exceptionally particular in his choice of partners and prides himself on his ironclad self-control.

Taken hostage by the dangerously mesmerizing vampire, Alasdair, Leo must rely on his intelligence to escape before he reveals a secret he isn’t even aware he’s hiding. A FORBIDDEN DESIRE Unaware that they’ve been brought together by an outside force and are little more than pawns to a higher power, Alasdair and Leo spend time trying to uncover the other’s secrets, the attraction between them growing stronger all the while. But enemies are watching and preparing to act against them. When decisions that will alter lives and destinies have to be made—can a dead, grey heart learn to beat again?
