Of Crimson and Collars - the Review.


So there i was happily strolling through Twitter the other night when one of the fabulous book bitches began talking of a Hottie called BEN.( Thanks KC @ Smokinhotbooks!!) Nosey as i am i found out he was from a book by an author duo i hadn't heard of before. So after much Googling (God Bless you Google! ) i'd bought the ebook and was happily snuggled away to read it...


"The world has many hidden races, ones that blend so seamlessly with humanity that we often forget we are not alone. Decadence in a time of simplicity, Passion and a new Caligula on earth. A satyrs passion knows no bounds.

With a society on par with humanity, The powerful rule with an iron fist. Taking what they will, Women, the source of life and power, are a thing to be cherished.

The New confederation lives and breathes the pleasures of the flesh, their ruling body, the four most powerful clans, Arcane, Tempest, Toloose and Rummer Set the precedence and laws. Each excelling in their own area of expertise, the clans are unrivaled.

A new age has begun. With the arrival of a convergence year, the most powerful of the clans princes is called home, and the balance of power is about to shift..."

"As a princess of the Satyr confederation, Minerva has been coddled, spoiled and revered, as well as taught and trained just how to serve her Satyr. beautiful, sexy and a prize in herself, she's anxious to meet the man that will become her lover, master, and reason for living.

Esben Chambers, a half demon, half something else orphan lives on earth with few cares or ties. His family partially unknown, he's embraced his Strigo, or time demon, heritage, though some of his powers are well out of the scope of the lords of time.

When a Imp shows up as his estate, claims he’s the only living Satyr prince to clan Tempest, Ben realizes there might be something to figuring out just who his fathers people were, and agrees to go to New York for a Convergence Summit. He's counting on figuring out why he was left alone in the world.

What he doesn't count on is the enchanting woman he sees in a floor show, the woman that makes his blood burn to possess her."

For any smut lovin' girls out there, this is YOUR book. Right from the start when Ben wakes up to his pet (dont be pet i dont mean his pet poodle (he doesnt have a poodle) cus yeah that would just be wrong people! pets are chicks all about the serving of their Master. She even has her own box lol ) giving him head until Ben and Minerva giving the other Princes' and Princesses and Clan leaders a floor show to rival any porn video you've ever seen it is packed full of sexy time. PACKED! no seriously, packed!

Besides the sexy time these characters are very likeable, i found Minervas innocence but yet sexual awareness a refreshing blend. This is a chick who was raised with all of lifes finery, she was well read, well educated, taught how to satisfy sexually but yet still technically a virgin. Submissiveness is empowering. The need to serve and to obey is the norm for the Princesses, its what they were brought up to do. Trained to do. And its the norm for the Satyr Princes to dominate. One of the first scenes we see Minerva she's rolling nekkid as the day she was born around on the floor with other Princesses in what can only be described as EVERY MANS FANTASY! Picture yourself in college, that one night you and your friend experimented with frenchies, boob squeezes and a lil grindin' (dont be know you did! LOL) ...then add in more chicks...ALOT more sexual contact and an audience and thats the floor show Minerva and her Princess friends are putting on for the visiting Satyr Princes. To attract one to Collar them. To become their treasured pet.

D/s is something i always enjoy reading, some authors get it right most others dont, making it a humilating experience i just dont like reading. But Stella and Audra Price did it justice, it didnt feel weird that the Princesses were raised this way, it didnt seem unnatural that sexual exploits with more than one person was expected or that getting yourself Collared ( i kept picturing a dog leash and collar...does that say TOO much about me? LOL) was the best thing that could happen, kind of like being offered a 100 karat square cut diamond from David Beckham would be for me! =D

Ben Ben Ben...yes it's time to talk about the Hottie. Esben (Loved his full name. Its very sexy!) or Ben as he liked to be called..but if you wanna lay under him then you gotta call him Master...Rawr! He is a tall delicious drink of ice cold yummy water. Seriously way over on the dominate side, some might find him TOO dominant and boarish in the way he treats women as his sexual pets but i thought he was knicker screamingly fuckmenow SEXY AS HELL! He can throw me down and make me beg all he likes! ( Was that over share? lol) I cant wax lyrically enough about how i adore strong in charge men. A man that knows what he wants and gets it and gives just as much to the chick astride him. I dont want no pussy wimpy mamas boy thank you very much! Girls...Ben will melt the panties clean off you and have you like a wet noodle in seconds. His only down side is he is possessive so i doubt you will be having a m/m/f sammich any time soon =( He does have a softer side too, in how he comes to care for Minerva. He also has a pet cat with no name (an ACTUAL pet this time :P ) i found that scene sweet and showed a lovely side to Ben.

Oh! and Bens friend ( He wasn't in Of Crimson and Collars) Drake, i hear from a source *CoughStellaPriceCough* is better and sexier and hotter than Ben, He taught Ben all he knows...Holy Fuck...BETTER THAN BEN?

COME.TO.ME.NOW.DRAKE.!!! Cant wait to meet him!

Secondary Characters Milton, Ellen and Harley are good to read too. It's Harleys story in Book two (lil wooties!)

This is a book i loved reading and didnt want it to finish so soon.

I happily give it 4.5 sparkles out of 5! This Satyr world is one im going to enjoy getting to know.

BOOK TWO: To Collar and Keep (Harleys Story) Coming March '10. Find this book and more at The Sisters Price
