CLAIMING LAUREN

One night should have been enough...

Twenty-seven-year-old Lauren Brant is the perfect society wife. She hosts dinners for her husband’s colleagues. She attends charity functions. She’s entirely appropriate…except for her clawing need to submit to a man she knows only as Master.
Unable to deny her cravings, she arranges to meet Master. No names, no faces, nothing but submission and sensation. Except it isn’t enough. Even before the night ends, Lauren needs more.

But “more” isn’t part of the arrangement and she returns to her polished life only to discover her estranged husband has come home. After five years of being invisible to Jacob Brant, Lauren doesn’t know what to do with him. He, however, knows exactly what to do with her…

 

DOMINATING AMY

Till-death-do-us-part should have been enough…
Mac Corcoran spent a long time running from the specter of his parents’ abusive marriage. He’s worked hard to suppress his dark urges and channeled his energy into building his own relationship upon a bedrock of respect and equality.
It takes two people to make a marriage work, however, and when Amy Corcoran’s submissive needs hit a breaking point, her only options are to walk away from the man she loves or force him to acknowledge her as the woman she is now. Even if that woman isn’t the same one he married ten years earlier.
With no more time for running, can Mac overcome his fear and be the Dominant man Amy needs him to be or will fear of repeating the past cost him the only woman he’s ever loved?


So, I'll be living here the link for the review from a while back on "Claiming Lauren", http://bookloverandotherjourneys.blogspot.pt/2013/05/netgalley-claiming-lauren-by-emily-ryan.html,I simply loved this short story and then I said that I was left wanting more, well I'm glad M. Davis heard me and sent me more, not of the same but another perspective of a troubled relationship.

Mac and Amy are a couple but with a crisis brewing in the background, a loss of communication and issues from the past clouding their judgement. Even though they can't live without each other, they can't seem to find the courage to face one another and just talk, put it all out in the open.
For me, this was their major problem and it almost cost them their marriage. Now I ask myself, how many couples go through the same problem and just give up because they don't have the courage to face the problem, sexually or otherwise, it doesn't matter ...

This author is great in creating a fiction work that we as reader's can relate to issues and troubles of the real life.
I know that this kind of books fall into erotica and BDSM life style, which I see no problem but I also know that it's not for everyone, but they have so much "juice" when they are well written that if you're willing to enlighten the strong ideas that come out of it, you can relate to the characters and maybe avoid errors in your real life book of stories.

As a hole, this bundle is worth purchasing and either if you feel getting naughty or just reading for curiosity of the life style, or even to spend some time off, this stories don't live you empty they make you realize that there is so much out there to explore.
