THE HICK AND THE HIPPIE by Sherrod Story

THE HICK AND THE HIPPIE by Sherrod Story

Description: When outspoken Chicago girl, Lee Morris, gets sent down south to “do time” (once again getting in trouble for her activist ways), the last thing she expects is to become the willing submissive of Xander Crete, a hick, football player. The Good: This book is H!O!T! from the beginning and really compelling. I couldn’t read it fast enough. The situation was fascinating, and I loved that the author actually deals with the emotional fallout of a young, budding dom/sub relationship. Lee really struggles with her desires, and you can’t blame her for doing so. The author seems very interested in the psychology of the situation, and the result is a really well-drawn heroine, who is likable without being run-of-the-mill.  Check out this...

Description: After a night of intense passion, Navy Seal, Francis Kade, promises to stay in touch with Shannon, the sister of one of his best friends. But a mission-gone-terribly-awry damages him both physically and emotionally. Can Shannon help him heal? The Good: I’m a big fan of the wounded soldier trope, and Shannon was awesome. She was warm and caring without allowing herself to become a complete doormat. Personality-wise she was everything that Kade needed. Also, that cover is awesome. The Bad: Though, I understand that BDSM is a theme in this series, in this book’s case, the carpet doesn’t match the drapes sex doesn’t match the couple. Ms. Schroeder fails to connect for the reader why a soldier with PTSD would be interested in...
