Excerpt It had been a rough week, and her exams were finally done, freeing up of her time to devote to Master Gage Just the thought of her dark haired, muscular Dom sent shivers down her spine The good kind Master Gage said we had to keep everything low key until the semester was over I just hope he ll make it in tonight He texted me he was going to be late and to help with the visitors Maybe he wants you to help the new guy feel at home Her best friend April grinned and spun from side to side on the bar stool, her feet dangling He s supposed to be Master Gage s special guest She polished off her cranberry juice and turned to slide the empty glass across the bar to Bernie Thanks No problem The large black man smiled, his eyes dancing merrily Everyone understood Bernie was the biggest teddy bear in the place, but if anyone threatened one of the subs, he would rival even the toughest Dungeon Monitor You girls be careful tonight The boys upstairs are on another membership drive, and I m not so sure they checked out everyone like they normally do Hmmm She eyed the charismatic blond man from across the room He was surrounded by women, each one eager to get a taste God It s like a feeding frenzy April laughed It is I hope they leave than the bones for whoever gets him tonight Her Domme Evelyn waved at her from the St Andrew s cross Look, I have to go Mistress Evelyn is summoning me You have a great time, honey, and give me a call tomorrow Will do Linnet picked up her ginger ale and took a small sip She tugged down her frilly micro skirt and checked her corset to make sure everything was in place It felt good to sit down The new black heels she d worn tonight were absolutely killing her, and it hadn t even been two hours yet Bernie narrowed his eyes, his lips turning down in disapproval as he gazed at the blond You be careful around that one, Linnet There s been talk Linnet cocked her head What kind of talk The kind that makes me want to throw his ass out the front door and not care where it lands I can t believe he wormed his way in here Really Just don t let yourself be alone with him, okay Point taken She swallowed the last of her drink and heaved herself off the stool and back onto the floor Her feet still hurt, but at least it was a little better after sitting I d better make my way into the fray If Master Gage comes in and sees me sitting, I ll get my backside warmed but good Bernie chuckled You know you like it when that man paddles you Hell, he could paddle me anytime Naughty, Bernie Linnet giggled Don t you know it, babe Now you watch yourself, you hear I will Don t worry. Okay, I have to be honest erotica with BDSM isn t my thing It doesn t really attract my attention, but I like to give books a try Bishop did a very impressive job keeping me interested in this novella You meet three dimensional characters who combine their professional expertise in order to catch a killer known as the Ripper Linnet is a combination of femininity and commander She likes to dictate what she wants in the bed and out, yet she is not opposed to be submissive as well Bishop made me blush plenty of times with her descriptive and sexy scenes between Linnet and her lovers Gage is a dominant man who likes to take charge in and out of the bedroom After an incident involving Linnet, he buys Crave, a BDSM club, and ups security to the max Ryder is a submissive man, devoted to Linnet He brings the girly and tender side of her out when she leasts expects it In the real world, he is a psychologist who works closely with BDSM patients This threesome of characters bring a new light to a dark side of sexual desires And in the process, they are in danger of losing the thing they love most each other 5 STARS for this amazingly written story 2.75 stars I received a copy of this book from the author and Paranormal Romance Authors that Rock, in exchange for an honest review The main character is Linnet, a woman with a deep desire for a kinky lifestyle and she s determined to indulge Do I need to say Ok, how about fetish shops, butt plugs, Doms Subs, Masters Mistresses, oh and can t forget BDSM To prevent spoilers I m going to try to stick with my basic likes and dislikes about the book The story is in third person, but switches between a few POVs, which I enjoyed I find multiple POVs most interesting rather than a one sided story, which I think a lot can be missed out on by not knowing how other characters feel, self explanations for their actions, etc Plus one POV is let s say, the villain That was interesting Yes, there is a lot of sex here, but there is an actually story in there too Crave is the name of the main Club where most events take place This is where one particular event changes Linnet and the course of her life forever, but here is one place where I found the story lacking I don t think there was enough detail given about the tragic event that happened to Linnet I would have liked detail of what occurred during the altercation and an explanation as to how it traumatized her Despite what happened to her, she grew into a strong woman I m glad she turned out that way When I began reading I hadn t looked at the length of the book, so when the end came I wasn t expecting it The story plot is very fast paced and events just fly by I believe this book has potential for I wish there d been pages that covered some of the time gaps Editing was done well The sex scenes were actually tastefully written for an erotica There are some but the author didn t overuse vulgar words, which I find too much vulgarity can take away from the sensuality and realism of the story building The sex scenes were hot and the chemistry between the characters was palpable and believable Overall I enjoyed the book.PRATR rating, I give it 4 Fangs I recommend this book only for Adult readers due to explicit and detailed sexual content Beware all prudes This book is not for the timid and uptight It is straight up raunchy, kinky with multiple O s, and tie me up situations The book will be available for purchase on Dec 1st, 2015. If BDSM isn t your thing, then this book isn t for you , although saying that, it wasn t my thing, but I thoroughly enjoyed this short but intense story The author handled the intensity of the BDSM scenes really tastefully, and managed to pack the short 79 pages full of so much than just the sex and role playing For a short story there was plenty of description to help you visualise the scenes This is a story full of pain, hurt, heartache and eventually retribution for our characters As the book is only 79 pages saying anything would give away too many spoilers, I will say that this book could have easily been a lot longer, and I would have been than happy with a few extra pages to get to know Linnett, Gage and Carter a little better This was a first for me from author Erzabet Bishop, the writing style is easy and flows really well, I would read from this author.The only negative thing I will say is that the cost of the book is a little high for the length of the book abfablesley Linnet is on her way to a promising future She is protected and cared for by Master Gage.All was going well and her carefree spirit allowed for her to indulge in many aspects of her life She is quickly thrown into a nightmare and only just saved in the nick of time.She finds her place as a detective and soon works along with Ryder a is also a Doctor of Psychology specializing in BDSM related crimes She soon recognizes he is also her submissive from Crave The two embark on uncovering the mystery of Seven murders over a course of Seven years.Gage all the while is still in love with the sub that got away He has yet to see that she has been right in front of him for some time.CraveErzabet BishopHer past and present collide in a steamy thriller where both her worlds come together and only the three can decide on their future.I fell in love with the characters as well as Erzabet Bishop s work I received this copy in exchange for an honest review.

Intensely emotional, gripping and tragic, Crave will have readers wondering why they haven t heard of this book before now Ms Bishop has combined suspense thriller, BDSM and heartfelt romance so beautifully that this story has absolutely everything in a fast paced, action packed novella But don t let the length of the story fool you at no time does it feel rushed or incomplete as you learn of the loss and trauma that shattered the life of a vibrant young woman and discover her strength and determination to overcome a dark and violent past The plot was enthralling and the characters played out to perfection Crave is definitely a must read and I highly recommend it to anyone who loves their D s romance with a touch of danger and intrigue. OMG WOW I m hooked on Erzabet Bishop and her books and I have barely scratched the surface of what she s written These short stories pack so much into them and they flow so well, I m absolutely thrilled If you haven t read the blurb for Crave, read it It s worth it Then I m going to say that THIS story is all that and SO MUCH MORE The plot will have you on the edge of your seat waiting to see what s going to happen next.Linnet takes the experiences of her life and uses them in her work and her play These characters are strong and go through hell There s romance, suspense, BDSM, angsty drama, and action Thank you Erzabet for an awesome read.
