Veterans, Vol. 1: Through the Fire Reviews
Kena Rutherford was hired to clean Baldwin Garrett's house. Thinking he won't be home for some time she goes skinny dipping in his pool and gets caught by him. Baldwin was injured in Irak and is despondent and angry. He suffers from major survivor guilt. Kena is a no nonsense type of girl and tells it how it is. Sparks fly when those two are around each other and the sex scences are hot. I enjoyed their relationship and the way Kena helped Baldwin let go of his guilt.The second story is about Damon Wayland who is a dominant and Ashland Finn who is a sub. After returning from Irak Damon feels he does not have the right to be a dom and hurt a sub. Whenever he does he sees the faces and hears the screams of the casualties in Irak. Ashland owns her own company and has to be strong and in control. However when she gets home she would like to drop off her brain at the front door and have a dom take control of her. To her surprise Damon shows an interest in her. Ashland is a full figured gal but feels comfortable in her skin. The first time Damon and Ashland play out a scene at her apartment Damon panics and leaves her. Ashland is confused and blames herself. After a few misunderstandings those two finally get together and Ashland helps Damon to accept being a dom without feeling guilty. Their role playing was pretty intense. I will never look at tapered candles, gloves you wash vegetables with and a teaspoon the same way again. The teaspoon incident happend at a restaurant which was a turn off for me. All in all a very good read.
It's hard for me to rate this one. The sex is smoking in both stories, but for me, the emotional side was a bit lacking. And I didn't buy the guys problems which made the stories much less enjoyable."Through the Fire" by Liz Andrews. Baldwin survived his tour in Iraq, but his leg will never be right again. He also loathes himself and feels guilt for allowing his wealthy parents to provide better medical care than the rest of his military unit got. Kena is the woman his mother hired to clean his house. They are both attracted to each other and have steamy hot sex, but Kena isn't about to let him get away with feeling guilty for what she condsiders senseless reasons.***WARNING: This story includes interracial romance, light bondage, and oral, vaginal, and anal sex."Risen From Ash" by Rachel Bo. Damon is a natural Dom who's been unable to enjoy his broken sex life since he returned from Iraq. He can't differentiate between a sub's willing pain and the pain of the war wounded. Ashland is a natural sub and his new neighbor. She'll risk her heart to help Damon overcome his fears.***WARNING: This story includes BDSM, emphasis on the SM and oral, anal, and vaginal sex.So even though I didn't love this twofer, if you're a fan of BDSM and military erotica, you may want to give it a try.
Great stories! I've just discovered Rachel Bo, am loving her stuff so far - Ash and Eric are great together. This is the first Liz Andrews I've read, and Kena was a little too in your face at times for me, but she grew on me. Overall, I'd definitely recommend this duology to any reader of erotic romance.
