MF,MM,MMF Erotic, emotional trilogy

Be sure to keep an eye on our TBB Facebook page for a fabulous NEW CAMELOT GIVEAWAY!


It starts with a stolen kiss under an English sky, and it ends with a walk down the aisle. It starts with the President sending his best friend to woo me on his behalf, and it ends with my heart split in two. It starts with buried secrets and dangerous desires…and ends with the three of us bound together with a hateful love sharper than any barbed wire.

My name is Greer Galloway, and I serve at the pleasure of the President of the United States.

This is the story of an American Queen.

AMERICAN QUEEN is available to purchase below



I’ve been many things.

I’ve been a son and a stepbrother. An Army captain and a Vice President.

But only with Him am I a prince. His little prince.

Only with Maxen and Greer does my world make sense, only between them can I find peace from the demons that haunt me. But men like me aren’t made to be happy. We don’t deserve it. And I should have known a love as sharp as ours could cut both ways.

My name is Embry Moore and I serve at the pleasure of the President of the United States…for now.

This is the story of an American Prince.

AMERICAN PRINCE is available to purchase below



They say that every tragic hero has a fatal flaw, a secret sin, a tiny stitch sewn into his future since birth. And here I am. My sins are no longer secret. My flaws have never been more fatal. And I’ve never been closer to tragedy than I am now.

I am a man who loves, a man whose love demands much in return. I am a king, a king who was foolish enough to build a kingdom on the bones of the past. I am a husband and a lover and a soldier and a father and a president.
And I will survive this.

Long live the king.

‘I’m aroused. I’m angry. I’m curious. I’m betrayed. I don’t ever want this moment to stop.’

We just devoured the entire New Camelot trilogy by Sierra Simone and wow, we came over all unnecessary! We’ve tried to read this Author once before and have to say -since then- her writing has evolved into something quite fabulous. So emotionally evocative with a huge emphasis on research and storytelling. We love when we try an Author again and fall in love with her writing. This trilogy is seriously addictive, highly erotic and quite simply compelling.

“You shouldn’t love me. You shouldn’t. You shouldn’t.”

Everything we love about our erotica reads was pretty much covered…or uncovered as was the case, with the added depth of a great love story and heart breaking emotion. As usual our series review will be spoiler free and because it’s three books each will be rated with a short review as we struggled to rate is as a whole. As far as erotic trilogies goes, this was a winner in our hearts!

‘…he is part God, he is more than just a man, and if he is just a man, then he is the best man ever to have lived.’

American Queen: 4 Stars

We were grabbed from the get go and couldn’t stop turning the pages whilst sticking the fan on high! We knew immediately this was the beginning of one hell of an epic saga that would dominate our life until finished. Without question, Embry and Ash stole our hearts yet we have to reluctantly admit that we never really connected with Greer in this book nor her journey which was a common on and off theme throughout the trilogy. There was no real spark or oomph for us and we would’ve loved to see more assertiveness and sassy spark from her to counteract the other characters and stamp her personality on the story. We wanted to not just like her but love her, yet we never really got there as Ash and Embry were written with such depth and passion outshining her in the process. Women can be strong, fierce and submissive at the same time. One does not negate the other.  However, the overall writing and intrigue kept us going and the intricate relationships, present and past had us devouring book one.

‘I wanted to tell him I’d be his. I’d belong to him. His possession, for as long as he’d have me. Sacrifice. I didn’t tell him any of those things, though. Instead, I told him one word.’ “No.”


American Prince: 5 Stars

This was our favourite book in this trilogy and we have to applaud Sierra Simone for daring to venture where she did and nailing the emotional aspect that can be quite rare to find in many mm books. American Prince had us in tears from our hearts breaking one minute then melting with hot flushes the next. Oh wow, Embry- he stole our hearts– fast becoming one of our favourite male characters. His soul was beautiful, his loyalty, sacrifice and love unwavering. His story was one that we felt in every single part of our being. What a wonderful character. There were scenes with him and Ash that literally made us shiver from the pure emotional aspect and others that were on the opposite ends of the scale being just about some of the filthiest we’ve ever read! Oh my…….         The storyline moved along fabulously and kept us riveted; quickly diving into the third and last book.

‘I could never truly be Ash’s and he could never truly be mine. But that night, none of it mattered. What mattered was that he was my king and I was his prince, and I would always, always be by his side.’

American King: 4.5 Stars

First of all we have to say American King had one of the best epilogues! It finished off the saga perfectly and we loved the afterword by Sierra Simone, it made the trilogy so much more poignant and intriguing than we originally thought it to be. In amongst the erotica -of which there was more than we usually enjoy albeit hot as hades– is a beautiful story with real beating hearts. We had a sense Ash’s journey was going to show his vulnerability masked in dominance, and it did. Whilst we had an idea where the Author was going with this story we were still surprised at certain aspects yet we embraced them, because this is fiction. We loved the journey we made with the characters in American King; the revelations and sacrifices making us gasp and tear up. Ash and Embry stole our hearts and for us this will always be their story!

‘When we first met, he thought I was his enemy and I thought he was perfect. Then I fell in love with him, and he’s been breaking my heart ever since.’

Told through past and present the three books move the present story along nicely with important flashbacks to the poignant emotional moments that shapes this very present. We never felt there were any repetitions nor did we feel they were superfluous to the trilogy. Rather, we got to experience instead of being told which we love as readers. This trilogy cannot be read as standalones; it’s an epic erotic yet emotional saga that stands out as one of the better ones we’ve read in this genre and category. Highly recommend!

“I’m sorry for all of it,” I finish. “But I love you, and that will always be the end of our story.”

‘It’s the Mount effect.’

Spoiler free review for both Defiant Queen (Book #2) and Sinful Empire (Book #3) – for our review of Ruthless King (Book #1) click here.

As soon as we finished Ruthless King, we desperately needed the next book! Stat! We wanted to continue the momentum, so it was with a tremendous amount of excitement we found Defiant Queen and Sinful Empire on our Kindles and, of course, we had to dive straight in! With the first two books ending in such a heart stopping manner….we simply couldn’t resist!

‘Revolution is not without bloodshed, and neither is vengeance.’

The Mount trilogy has been one sexy, badass, twisty read, with a sexy, menacing hero and a sultry, tenacious heroine who was more than a match for the ruthless possessive Lachlan Mount! Whilst Mount may have bargained on taming the Irish hellion into submission, he underestimated the strength, determination and sheer will of Keira Kilgore who met him head on at every turn.

‘When I dragged her into the shadows and darkness, I gave no thought to the consequences of my actions beyond the satisfaction I would gain from her submission.’

The chemistry between Keira and Lachlan is again stratospheric! Oh boy, the intense passion and craving radiated off every page practically gave us heat stroke!

In Defiant Queen and Sinful Empire, more of Mounts past is uncovered, and with this we see more of his vulnerable side. There was one scene in particular that was so beautifully written, we felt the character evolve before our eyes, completely understanding this man and his brutal ways.

‘I don’t see the devil in a suit who has the power to turn my body against me and mess with my head. Instead, I see a man who must have fought overwhelming odds to get to where he is today.’

Whilst Mount retains the essence of who he is; a fierce, protective, ruthless and demanding ruler, we are able to get a glimpse beneath the gritty, unapologetic ruthless king façade to what makes him tick, and what set him on his path.

‘Lachlan Mount isn’t a myth or legend. He’s just a man. A dangerous one, certainly, but still a man.’

We’ve really enjoyed this trilogy! The heat, the characters and clever twists kept us glued to our Kindles. A delicious battle of wills between Keira and Mount, danger and obstacles meeting them at every turn, fabulous writing, all wrapped up in an erotic, playful, emotional and suspenseful read ensured the Mount Trilogy was a right tasty page turner!

TBB also recommends THE REAL DIRTY DUET
A Sexy series with a country music theme.

“I’m gonna spoil you, Ripley Fisher. It’s about time someone did, and I’m privileged to have the opportunity.” Boone takes advantage of my momentary speechlessness to wrap a hand around the back of my neck and slide his lips along mine. “Kiss me, sugar. I’ve missed the taste of you.”

The Real Dirty Duet delivered exactly what it promised, and just what we were in the mood for. A steamy, entertaining and effortless story that provided a pleasing balance of heat, emotion, drama, fun and even a little suspense and whodunit to keep us guessing. Not to mention a swoony warm-hearted alpha hero and a sassy yet sweet heroine. What more could we ask for?

“I own your orgasms. I decide when you come. Not you. Learn it. Live it. Because you’re going to fucking love it by the time I’m done with you.”

Gulp! Holy hell Lachlan Mount! Talk about suspense, surprise sin and flippin’ hot sex! WOW! Ruthless King needs to come with a warning of a possible spontaneous Kindle combustion when reading! Keira and Mount positively burn up the pages, fighting each other every step of the way with explosive chemistry and a gripping push, pull between the pair! And helloo…helloalpha, possessive, sexy, dirty anti-hero….music to our ears…we knew we had to read this story!  We were so in the mood for a walk on the dirty gritty side and Ruthless King delivered exactly that and more!

Keira Kilgore is drowning in debt, trying to keep her family business, the Seven Sinners Whiskey Distillery afloat. It’s a business that’s been passed from generation to generation and there’s no way she is going to have it fold, not on her watch. However, things have just taken a turn for the worse. Keira recently lost her husband in an accident and as his wrong doings come to light, Keira realises not only was he a cheating bastard, but he had borrowed money against her business, making her financial situation even more dire than she realised. Keira needs help, and it appears in the form of the mysterious, enigmatic Lachlan Mount. The ruthless, unforgiving King of New Orleans. Nothing happens in New Orleans without Mount’s say so. He’s feared, respected and isn’t afraid of anything or anyone and has owned the streets of New Orleans for over twenty year.  He rules New Orleans with a heavy hand and a fuck you attitude and the myth surrounding this man is legendary.

‘Everyone comes into your life for a reason…or that’s what I always thought. I can’t come up with a reason for Mount. I’m sure no one can.’

Lachlan Mount makes Keira an offer she can’t refuse. After all, no one, but no one says no to Mount! He wants her to submit to his desires, he wants complete sexual control over her. Mount knows Keira is a red headed spitfire with a temper and stubbornness that amuses him. He’s bored and Keira could provide a perfect distraction and he won’t accept no for an answer.  Knowing he has her cornered, Keira relents, though she certainly doesn’t make it easy on him. This lady doesn’t bow to no man! Her fighting spirit both tests him and excites him. A lethal combination for a dangerous man!

‘Most men won’t look me in the eye, but this woman isn’t afraid to declare all-out war.’

Now, we love our anti-hero’s – they’re our kryptonite and whilst we found Lachlan Mount to be a possessive, commanding, demanding and a sex on legs alpha male, we didn’t really experience the full anti-hero aspect, the sheer weight of his menacing persona as it were.  Think Christian Grey or Jesse Ward; Mount came across as the bossy  and demanding brooding powerful alpha rather than the dangerous, deadly anti-hero. We were told and it was inferred the depths of Mounts deviousness and callousness, but we didn’t really experience first-hand the depths of his dark and deadly ways. However, this is only the first book in the trilogy so we’re looking forward to this being explored more as the series progresses! And how! Don’t get us wrong…there is a sinister feel to Mount that made us weak at the knees, just not the all-out anti-hero we had expected. Or… perhaps it’s because we fell under his spell? Hmmmmmm….

“You push me to the edge like no woman ever has, and now I’m going to fuck you like I’ve planned from day one. The way you’ve been dying to be fucked…”

This story was fabulous! Fast paced, entertaining, mysterious and totally addictive! Meghan March sure does write one filthy, sexy…and dare we say…swoony alpha! She introduced us to a cast of characters throughout the book whose role in Keira’s story left us guessing and dying to find out more! We are desperate to get our hands on Defiant Queen, because if it’s anything like this book…we know won’t be able to put it down! And don’t get us started on that ending! OMG! We bloody loved this book and can’t wait for more, more, more of everything!

“Give us a chance, Vivian. Run to me.”

So far we have A.D.O.R.E.D this series! The dialogue, banter, romance, angst, passion, emotion and drama left us breathless not to mention our brand new…’be still our beating hearts’… book boyfriend left us swooooning! Seriously, Keaton Thorne is ‘the best!’. Yes, we’re ‘air quoting’  Keaton, so get over it buddy!

“It’s just a story, V. We all have a story.”

We received an email from a reader who told us to drop everything and read this book! She thought it was right up our ally and she was right! We ran the gauntlet of emotions; we laughed out loud, we welled up, did some serious swooning over Keaton, met a new author whose work we’re giddy over, and we loved every minute!

‘I thought of the collection of New Adult books that were lined up on my Kindle, wondering if his pulse was thundering and his dick was twitching.’

Kimberly Stedronsky told her story with a perfect balance of realism, passion, drama and humour which had us feverishly turning the pages. The expressive way in which she delivered the humour in this story ensured we read it with a huge smile on our faces as we feverishly devoured every word!

“You have too much time of your hands.”
“I have too much Vivian on my hands.”

The prologue had a sudden impact, which drew us into the story, leaving us pondering how Vivan had arrived at that point in her life. Just what had transpired up to and after that point? Well, Kimberly Stedronsky deliciously drip fed us tiny morsels of her story to keep us tantalisingly teased!

Keaton Thorne! Wow!!! WE. ARE. IN. LOVE with this flawed and bloody gorgeous man!!  He was the complete book boyfriend. Good looking, sexy, strong, smart, charismatic, possessing a wonderful sarcastic wit and an enigmatic presence. Yep, he’s the stuff book boyfriends are made of and we couldn’t get enough of him. We think we fell more and more in love with him as the story progressed. He could definitely cause a city to heat and you really do need to meet this guy any which way you can.

“But you’re everything. You’re everything that I used to pretend existed out there for me., somewhere. You’re the beautiful girl who I would dream about when I’d lie awake at night, the one who’d make me laugh, piss me off, and impress me, all at the same fucking time. ‘

Normally we’re not fans of bringing real life into our books but this author handled it in such a way that it enhanced the story. The movie and book references were so much fun…well, everything was. As you can tell, we really did love it.

We initially adored Vivian and found ourselves empathising with her. Whilst we may have become exasperated by some of her actions and reasoning, we felt as though we understood her. It was who she was and how she handled difficult situations. She was a little reckless and a lot impetuous, but her heart was in the right place. By book two it was a different story and we wanted to throttle her. Her thought process, her flip flopping drove us to the brink and she somehow even managed to bring Keaton down which upset us deeply. Thankfully, Kimberly Stedronsky pulled it back and had us once again connecting with Vivian. It was a close call, the angst was aplenty, and we were walking a tightrope of going off this character completely but luckily that wasn’t the case.

Told in a dual POV between Keaton and Vivian, it was a delight to get an insight into their inner thoughts which were hilarious. Their banter was priceless. We were reciting many classic lines whilst discussing the books after finishing. In fact, we’re still giggling and swooning!

‘She was gorgeous. Stunning. She took my breath away and gave me air to breathe.’

It would be a true crime not to pick up this series. It’s fun, flirty, angsty, emotional and addictive and you get to meet the delectable Mr Keaton Thorne!!! Yummy!!

‘He needed me.  I needed him. Right? Isn’t this the way it goes? Isn’t this our blockbuster? I needed him to unbreak my heart, and he needed me to save him.’

For a fistful of dollars you can pick up and fall in love with Below Unforgiven, or for a few dollars more, you can grab the series! Either way, you need to get a hold of these books any which way you can because it would be a true crime to pass these up.

‘Everyone in town introduced themselves by name and relations. Apparently, I was no exception. Maybe it was a precautionary measure to thwart inbreeding.’

A real winner! The good…there was LOTS of that! The bad…well, there wasn’t really any bad, except wanting to throw our Kindles once or twice…..and the ugly…..hmmm there wasn’t any of that either, but we had to get that Clint Eastwood title in here somewhere. An absolute recommend from us!!! We’re still on book cloud nine from this one! Enjoy but remember…Keaton is ours!!!

On a side note, we’ve been asked if it’s worth reading the novella or delving straight into books one and two – we say – absolutely read the novella. It reaches further into the characters and gives you a deeper understanding of the dynamics of the relationships. It really is an added bonus to the series we wouldn’t have missed!
