Halloween Submission by Bonnie Bliss, Review and Giveaway

Title: Halloween Submission
Series: Holiday Doms, #2
Author: Bonnie Bliss
Published: October, Irish Wold Publishing
Format: Ebook received for review
Tour:  Sizzling PR

Halloween has arrived and Tom Newton is stressed with his job as a fireman. His best friend Rob, a submissives’ wet dream, is having a play party on Halloween night. Lucy, a nurse who has secretly been crushing on Tom, has decided to go to the party. Tom has decided that he needs to release some tension, and have some fun during his time off. What Lucy and Tom don’t know is that Rob, his best friend, and Millie, Tom’s sister, have set this up. Join them as they enjoy a hot night of bondage play. Can it all run smoothly? Will true love blossom? Will the Master get his slave? There is only one way to find out. 

A story packed with sultry moments of Dominance and submission. Halloween Submission promises to be the hottest holiday this year.

Warning: This book is intended for readers over the age of 18. It contains, but is not limited to intense bondage play, references of Sadomasochism, impact play, anal play, and one hot night on All Hollow’s Eve, you aren’t soon to forget. 

Well, well, well... This is my first book by Bonnie Bliss, but I can tell you right now - it won't be my last.  Right away the author had me under lock and key.  She made me care of these characters before she got them busy.

Lucy is an overworked nurse.  She loves her job, but man, she needs a break.  She's a natural sub, but hasn't been involved in the lifestyle for a while because if she can't have the one she want, no one else measures up.

Tom is a fireman.  Yeah, I could stop the review right there, couldn't I? Haha.  He is a fireman, and he is a Dom.  And everyone knows it, including Robert, who is having a Halloween play party.  And Robert has a few tricks and treats up his sleeve. He's getting Lucy and Tom together tonight, and then the party will really begin. Cause he knows something Lucy doesn't know - Tom is crazy for her, too.

So in this story you get a bit of the unknown, a masquerade, if you will.  I enjoyed the aspect, but I don't know how well I believed the fact that masks could really keep people hidden.  But I guess they do, right?  Tom and Lucy end up together in the dungeon.  It was a perfect night....until it wasn't.

The scene between the two of them was hot.  It was sexy and steamy and full of dramatic tension.  I couldn't read fast enough.  It was perfect.

And then something happens and it made me curse out loud!  I'm serious!!  One of these characters acted out of character, and mucked it up like characters often do.

I'd love to see more of Tom and Lucy's story.  They are perfect for eachother, and I was happiest when they were together, even when they weren't getting it on.  I'd definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for a quick and spicy BDSM read.  Bonnie Bliss easily brought these characters for life, and made me a quick fan all at once.

About Bonnie....

Bonnie Bliss is not just a willing submissive, but she is a wife and a mother. By day, she is a busy, stay at home mother. At night, she is a sultry storyteller. Her tastes go towards the dark and the extreme. She loves to twist up fairy tales and sweet stories we all know and love. Her lust for Dominance and submission has taken her into the dark inner workings of Sadomasochism.

Bonnie is a native of Southern California, and says that everything in the Katy Perry song, California Girls is totally accurate. She has done everything from waitressing, customer service phone rep., Corporate Real Estate, and spent a pretty impressive part of her life working for the Disney Corporation—including as a Disney Princess. When she’s not writing, she is ordering too many custom bows for her daughter, baking the best cupcakes in the world, going to Disneyland, laying on a beach, and sometimes playing hockey for release.

    Hey Bonnie! :) Thanks for stopping by! I'm glad you liked the review!

    I'm glad to see Robert is getting a book, I kept thinking I want to know more of his story!! I have to go back and catch up on Millie's story, for sure. That's been on my TBR since it came out.

    Have a great tour!

  5. I love Bonnie and this one sounds great!

  6. Ms. Bliss is a new-to-me author. This sounds like a hot read. I can't wait to check it out. Thanks for sharing with us.

  7. Good review! Ms. Bliss is a new to me author - I'll have to add her books to my list to check out

  8. It's never too late for Halloween candy and this is my type of candy!!! I've been wanting to read this book since it came out. Thanks for the giveaway :)

  9. This book sounds fantastic. Can't wait to read it. Congrats Bonnie!


  10. Happy Belated Halloween to you as well.

  11. Ooh! This one sounds SO GOOD! Love the blurb! Love your review and I know we love the same kind of read so I am going to put this one on my TBR list right now! Thanks for this chance!

  12. Robert is my challenge for sure. He's a bit cocky, stubborn, hard headed... and then some LOL! I can't WAIT to write his story!

  13. Thank you so much, Joanne! It was a fun story to write and I am so glad people are enjoying it!

  14. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did writing it! I am so in these characters heads I think they talk to me randomly when I clean the house ;-P

  15. Where is your review?! I would love to read it, and I hope you liked it, but since you said it won't be your last read either I am hopeful! I mark you ladies down for ARC copies of Kenny's story! It is a bit more intense BDSM wise, but I hope people like it as much as Halloween Submission.

  16. This is my favorite cover I have done to date. It was one of those things that I took a chance and played around and it was just done lol! I want to get shirts made I love it so much lol

  17. That would make cleaning the house less boring and monotonous! I would love it if the voices in my head were more interesting rather than different versions of myself. Maybe I should put it out there and one day soon interesting characters will show up and take over!

    Great! Good luck!

  22. Liz @ Fictional CandyNovember 9, 2012 at 11:31 PM

    Hmmmmm. A quiz! Well, with 5 being "tons O' BDSM" I'd say it was a 2-3 on quantity (this book was only 58 pages, according to Amazon). Possibly a 4 on quality because there was something new that I haven't seen before. It was definitely hot, and I'd have liked to see more.

  23. Liz @ Fictional CandyNovember 9, 2012 at 11:31 PM

    It is a thing of beauty :)
