I am having trouble finding the words to express how much I hated this book I knew that this was basically supposed to be a sexy book and not great literature, but even by those standards, it failed How could a book with this much sex manage to be so boring Morgan I have never wanted to get out of a character s head this badly before The constant, repetitive inner monologues about whether her relationship with Jack was a good idea or not and whether it made her a whore or whatever were killing me, especially after she had already had sex with him a few times she really didn t have so much at stake at that point that it should have been quite such an agonizing decision each and every time he put a hand on her Also, nothing throws cold water on a hot scene like a character going on and on about what their mother would think of it This sexually repressed woman supposedly talks about sex on TV for a living Jack What an ass Being inside his head was no picnic either Totally manipulative, and I really didn t see a whole lot on the positive side to redeem him He wasn t even a very good bodyguard He spent way to much time in angst filled inner monologues too, to the point where it seemed like it would be noticeable if you were in the room with him like someone would ask him a question and he d be sitting there staring off into space for 10 minutes trying to sort out his thoughts the SAME thoughts every time of course and I d picture the other character patiently waiting for an answer and maybe glancing at their watch.The sex scenes might have been good if the characters had just stopped thinking so much and gotten into it if you are thinking about your mom and your past relationships how into it can you be and the D S sexual discovery theme actually had some interesting ground to cover but was lopsided way overdeveloped on some ways and underdeveloped on others and of course repetitive as hell The love relationship seemed unconvincing I definitely got that they were sexually compatible, and that s great, but after 3 days of fucking and fighting they are in love with a capital L Even better, they couldn t possibly know this without fulfilling every single fantasy she has ever had in one weekend I totally get that in order to fit 50 sex scenes into a book you have to take some serious liberties with the plot and this one is paper thin but this one just had me rolling my eyes The woman in the dream had red hair OMG what a coincidence Morgan has red hair If she has red hair, she must be the woman in the dream Ack I wanted to hurl this one across the room. She Didn T Know What She Wanted Until He Made Her Beg For ItMorgan O Malley Has Seen A Lot Of Kinky Things As The Hostess Of A Cable Sex Talk Show But She S Never Met A Man Like Jack Cole Before A Self Proclaimed Dominant, He S As Alpha As A Male Can Get And Good For Morgan To Have Around When An Obsessed Stalker Ratchets Up His Attempts To Get To HerThough Jack Is A Bodyguard, Morgan Feels Anything But Safe In His Presence Because Slowly And Seductively, Jack Is Bringing Her Deepest Fantasies To The Surface And When He Bends Her To His Will, What S Shocking Than Her Surrender Is How Much She Enjoys It And Starts To Crave His Masterful Touch A Willing Player In Jack S Games, Morgan Knows That His Motives Aren T Pure, But She Has No Idea How Personal They Are When I started this book I figured it would be just another sexy read by Shayla Black WOW Was I ever wrong Not about the sexy read part, but about the just another part of the sexy read comment Jack Cole is a bodyguard, an alpha male and self proclaimed Dominant He s given the opportunity to appear on a cable sex talk show and discuss his sexual proclivities with Morgan O Malley, the skeptical host of the show She s not buying into the whole Dom sub thing, and Jack s hints that she might actually like it if she tried it She expected to have to deal with an arrogant, bossy male at their first meeting at a trendy, outdoor cafe, but what she wasn t expecting was to be shot at Things quickly go from fun and games, to life or death, but lucky for her, Jack knows his stuff and gets her safely out of the crosshairs So, this is where the story really takes off as Jack does whatever he has to, to both protect and seduce Morgan.Having been instantly captivated by the story and finding Jack so incredibly attractive, I was surprised by my reaction to Morgan, who I think was just ok I didn t connect with her on any level, really and I often found her than a tad annoying However Jack sigh Jack was amazing I can t even put my finger on what it was about him that was so compelling, so demanding, so perfect.When reading an erotic book like this I don t expect much in the way of storyline or character development but I have to say that Wicked Ties has it all Fantastic story, amazing characters, incredible sexual tension I couldn t put it down and in fact, Wicked Ties turned out to be one of my favorite reads in a very long time and Jack Cole has a place of honor on my Top Heroes reading shelf Sexual ContentYes That is to say, this book contains just about everything except m m. I had heard so much hype about this book that I was a little disappointed with it I enjoyed it, but I wasn t wowed I think Jack s ultra dominance was a little much for me and I felt a little sorry for Morgan I kept putting myself in her shoes and wanted to strangle Jack That would have been my sexual fantasy I wish he had been a little sensitive than hulking and scowling but I guess that is pretty much the norm for these brooding dominant male we tend to love so much When Deke was introduced to the story I started to get back into the story b c he brought some of that playfulness, coddling and sensitivity I was yearning for Reviewed on I Bookie Nookie ReviewsIf you like this type of book, you might enjoy one of these groups Check us out Menage ReadersErotic EnchantsBookie Nookie s Erotic Lending Group 5 stars Romantic Suspense Erotica BDSM M nageYOWZA It s difficult to adequately review this book because author Shayla Black successfully weaves so many elements into the story Anyone who appreciates well written erotica, especially with aspects of BDSM D s or Menage should read this book Wicked Ties is highly rated and recommended by for erotica fans for good reason This book is scorching HOT It s definitely one of my very favorite erotica novels I loved it Be sure to have a glass of ice water nearby when reading this 2.3 I wanna change Massachusetts with Romania, works here as wellWow This was like a bad Z movie, a bad porn, Z movie and I am claiming artistic license for any repetitions or pleonasm D The hero is a bully who doesn t know what he wants and the heroine kept along with him He s an a hole to her, fu ks up the D s concept and send her supposed fianc view spoiler actually, her half brother hide spoiler DAYUMWicked Ties is probably one of the better BDSM books that I ve read No butt plugs in sight It was scorching HOT, but still had a lot of heart in it too.I don t usually care for heroines in a lot of erotica romance novels, but I found that I really liked Morgan She s intelligent and industrious, but still vulnerable in her sexuality I liked her reluctance to fold in Jack s presence It definitely made her submission in the end worth it I was also terrified for the woman Having a sicko stalker masturbate in her bed is disgusting And those photos were damn creepy too For her safety, she spends a few days with Jack Cole, a bodyguard and the man who is swoon worthy, no scratch that, SCREAM WORTHY Yeah, Jack is definitely a Dom who knows what he s doing That s probably the biggest understatement.Also, I LOVED DEKE It s rare for me to care about secondary characters, especially in an erotica, but Deke sure made a BIG impression on me with his charms and umperformance I love him In addition to the scorching hot sex scenes, I loved the whole stalker investigation and the ending was GREAT What a way to end a book I can t wait to readDecadent. WICKED TIESDAAAAA YUMMMMMMMMMMMM If you like your hero super sexy, smoldering hot, dirty talking and ready and determined to fulfill all your fantasies, you must read Wicked Ties Jack Cole is sex on a stick and he ll have you squirming and panting from the beginning to the end of this amazing book WOW Shayla Black does erotica justice This is definitely one damn HOTTT and steamy read, but it s also a really great and well developed story with amazing characters I literally couldn t put it down It had me from word one and didn t let go It is the one of the best written erotica books that I ve read to date and definitely goes on my all time FAVS list I LOVED Jack and Morgan s story and looking forward to Deke s story in DECADENT Warning This book contains a whole lot of graphic sex, including but not limited to BDSM, menage and anal play It is absolutely not for the faint of heart The most awful saddest part about this book is that every review I ve read says the others in the series are nowhere near as good It s such a shame because it definitely leaves you with the urge to run out and buy books by Shayla Black, but I m not going to force myself through the series and ruin where I ve currently left off with the author And, let s just say, we are on very good terms with each other.Erotic fiction, for me, can easily get a 3 or 4 star rating as long as it does its job right and fulfills its purpose A 5 star rating, on the other hand, means that the book really impressed me Which Wicked Ties most definitely did There was a lot of sex, naturally, but there was also a very touching development of love between two people I can see why BDSM erotica when the woman is the sub can easily be viewed as degrading to women Some will ask how can a love story be found in BDSM But Jack doesn t see Morgan as inferior or weak he acknowledges her as an independent woman who just so happens to have an adventurous sexual appetite.Some people see BDSM as a lifestyle and that s something I ve never understood I find it hot as long as it remains well within the bedroom and in the realms of sex I think sex can separate from the rest of a person s life and I also think allowing someone to have control in the bedroom doesn t mean they get to dictate what you do outside of it I m sure there are plenty of powerful people, heads of huge corporations, billionaires, heads of state that like giving up the reins in their sex life Oh shit, now I m imagining the Queen getting handcuffed by Prince PhilipYou don t think he wears that hat to bed, do you I seem to have lost myself on one of those tangents again Back to the book I really enjoyed reading the development of the relationship between Jack and Morgan I found it touching that he managed to get her to open up about her past when previous lovers had been disgusted with her for suggesting they trying something a little different But the best thing about this novel is that there is actually a proper story going on here behind the sexytime Morgan is being harrassed by a mysterious stalker who has even gone so far as to break into her home, send her photos of herself in various places, follow her across the country, and eventually try to shoot her That s where Jack steps in as he can t resist the pull to protect her and other stuff It s a good love story and it s also very hot I honestly mean it when I say proceed with caution if you re not usually into kink.
