To Collar and Keep - Review

Book two in the American Satyrs Series


A surrender to the unknown has never been sexier.

Olanis, the summer holiday is upon the Satyr clans once more and it is the time for Harlequin, prince of the Rummer clan, to claim his first and only female, the Grecian Satyr princess Arabella, sight unseen.Unsure of what kind of woman his clan had brokered for him, he is both interested in the woman that would wear his collar, and nervous that she won’t meet his standards. His female has to rival him in all things, and his hopes of that coming true are slim and none. Arabella craves two things, finishing her education, and being claimed by her Satyr. An anomaly in the Satyr world, Arabella was afforded opportunities other princesses weren’t. Now, in a foreign land she is given over to the Prince she was promised to, and she couldn’t be more nervous. What's a girl to do when you’re being gifted to a man you have never seen? Harley is a commodity to the Rummer clan, one that his father plans to exploit regardless of his son’s wishes. When he gives Harley an ultimatum, Harley and Bella have two choices-agree to the terms or rebel.When sparks fly and new alliances are forged in the Satyr ranks, both Harley and Bella have to decide what it is they want and what kind of future they wish to have. Only together will they succeed, if they can suffer the slings and arrows.

Disclaimer: Received from Author for an honest review.

I've been waiting for 'To Collar and Keep' by Stella and Audra Price ever since i was hooked into their Satyr world with 'Of Crimson and Collars' this one is Harley's story and within the first few paragraphs there is a line that says 
Who had time to fuck when they were trying to create the perfect future?
I just knew i was going to love him! He's your typical Satyr, but then not. there's something more to Harley that i just loved. He's kinda cocky but not in an overly way that makes you want to smack him, he's a delicious cocky. 
In amongst family business, clans and whose side to be on, trying to please his family, continue to expand his mind (he's so smart! like a sexy geek satyr! rawr!) he is to take his beloved, Bella, sight unseen and it has him (and her) anxious to see her. Satyrs are all about the smex, so if you're not attracted to who is gifted to you, you're kind of up shit creek with no paddle. 
I liked Bella's determination to see her Prince before officially being given over to him, she had balls, and wasn't afraid to embrace all her sexual needs. 
I really enjoyed reading To Collar and Keep, we learn more of the Satyr world Stella and Audra Price are building, more characters introduced, Corbin and Sebastian, two i will be keeping an eye out for in the future. As i said in my review for book one, this too is a book for all lovers of great written smut. Harley made my eyes steam over more than once. 
Some aspects of the book didn't appeal to me, girl on girl play, it's just a personal preference, what can i say, i'm all about the peen heh! but when the authors do give girl play it's greatly written. it's just not for me. With a complicated world the Satyrs live in, it is inevitable there has to be a lot of information, places, names, etc, packed in there. Again another personal preference i like just a little less, but it doesn't take anything away from enjoying a great read. 
After reading book one, i was sure Ben owned me, i was willing to even wear his Collar, but darn now i've met Harley i think i need a second collar...at least  a wrist collar heh! this was a wonderful read, perfect if you have a few hours and you want a hot book to drool over. 

I give To Collar and Keep by Stella and Audra Price 4 Sparkles out of 5! Petilicious! 
Head over to the Eververse Blog HARLEY is there answering questions and generally being sex on legs for you to drool over!! 
Smooch!

Nice review! I am torn on this one. I wasn't a huge fan of the first book - it was okay... but it just seemed like a lot of sex for the sake of sex and no real love - I know that seems silly, like one can have "too much sex." LOL I may have to try out the series again. Thanks!

@Twimom lol i understand you fully babes, this second book has a lot more Satyr world and politics going on, lots more characters introduced too, and yes there is lots of smex. I look forward to your thoughts if you give it a try. Harley is worth it ;)
