But, Nicole! This isn’t the 1st Sunday of the month!! …. Ok, so this isn’t TECHNICALLY Sexy Sunday. But, I’ve been a little off my game for the Christmas Season (I promise I’ll be back full force in the new year. Things have been a little crazy lately).
*AS ALWAYS, THIS POST MAY INCLUDE SOME EXPLICIT SCENES (……OK. I CAN PROBABLY SAY, THIS POST DOES CONTAIN SOME EXPLICIT SCENES!!)*
As a young weredeer, all Pembroke has ever dreamed of is being harnessed to Santa’s sleigh. Yet his world comes crashing down when Santa’s slain.
A war erupts in the Arctic Circle-pitting elf against reindeer.
Pembroke is sent on a perilous mission. If he fails, his herd will be lost. When the mission goes awry, the stag-shifter must put his trust in an unlikely ally.
Where does one turn in a land of ice and blood?
What happens when the enemy infiltrates your heart? What begins as a wavering alliance, takes both stag and elf farther than they both could ever imagine.
…. What did I just read?? Ha ha! Reindeer on reindeer, reindeer on man, man in elf…. This book has it all!
I was first pulled in by the email that I got from the author requesting a review and describing the book as a “BDSM, Fantasy/Scifi, Suspense, Action/Adventure, Multiple Partners, Mystery, Thriller, Shape-shifters, M/M Romance.“…. Is there a genre that ISN’T in this book??
The REAL clincher was the comparison he came up with for the book, “It’s like “Rudolph” & “50 shades of gay” meets “Mad Max” at Santa’s workshop!” COME ON!! I had the read it.
Sad to say, it didn’t deliver for me. It needed more plot, or less sex. There was just too much of one, or not enough of the other.
It definitely had some interesting erotic scenes with such descriptive gems as,
“Pembroke sobbed with joy. His throat filled with the avalanche of stag cock. Pembroke’s member shuddered every time his balls were bludgeoned by the pounding of a twin’s large furry sack, swinging below a relentless stag cock. His insides stretching wider and wider. Pembroke strained to accommodate the stag’s heft.”
And, it also had some morals hidden in its erotic depths pointing out the perils of judging others and stereotyping. But, it was a little muddled, and too short for the (I think?) message it was trying to get across.
