Of Male Virgins & Smutty Reads

Hello friends!

I hope you all are doing well! I've had a rough couple weeks, and haven't been reading as much, which has me all sad, but I'm hoping to get out of the slump this week. Hopefully!
Today I have for you a virgin hero, and a SUPEEEER smutty book to add to your TBRs! I hope you enjoy the reviews! :)

Virgin Territory is the third book in Lia Riley's Hellions Angels series. This series has been light-hearted, romantic and a whole lot of fun for me. I was excited to dive into Virgin Territory because 1) the hero is a virgin and 2) he is a ginger! I'm glad to say that Virgin Territory was just the fun book I needed when I read it. I was pleasantly surprised that the heroine was also older than the hero. You don't see that a lot in romance, so I was happy to see Lia Riley normalize that in her book. Both Patrick and Margot are great characters, who are very easy to root for. I liked Margot - she was so peppy and lively, and just a genuinely sweet girl who brought happiness wherever she went. I also thought Patrick was a well-developed character. He has his reasons for being a virgin, and they were heartbreaking, but what a guy he was. I liked watching Patrick and Margot fall for each other - fair warning, it happens pretty swiftly, but this is one of the cases of insta-love that I wasn't all too bothered by, mostly because I felt their connection from the very beginning. Virgin Territory also has great subtle and not-so-subtle feminist overtones to the book that I always appreciate in any romance novel. All, in all, this was a fun and sexy read for me. Looking back, book two, Head Coach, is definitely my favorite of the series, but I enjoyed all three books!

TW: Rape fantasies
So umm this book. *blushes furiously* IT WAS WILD. Can I leave my review at that??? I got it because I had previously enjoyed books by Eve Dangerfield, and I also saw that Lisa had liked Degrees of Control. I have to say, this book was definitely out of my comfort zone - there are couple of kinks here that aren't entirely my thing. It's pure smut, and exceptionally well-written smut at that. Australian Charlotte and Southern James make a HOT couple. The chemistry between the two was on fire. And the sex scenes had me clutching my pearls, because holllyyy moly! I liked both the characters individually too, and I think Eve Dangerfield also does a really nice job at developing her characters. Plus, there's just something about her writing that draws me into her books even though erotica isn't always a genre that I veer towards. All that said, I would have liked to see some more emotional conversations between Charlotte and James to make me really believe their connection. After a while the sex got old for me, and I wanted to see them bond in other ways outside the bedroom. Still, Degrees of Control was fun, and if you're in the mood for a sexy-times fest give this one a try.
