[Review] Something More by Nia Farrell


Loving a biker and his adult film star brother came at a terrible price. Taken by a rival gang, beaten beyond recognition and sexually assaulted, Rachel Givens saw a chance to survive by claiming the identity of the other girl who was taken and killed. She spent months recovering from her physical injuries but still struggles with PTSD. Add her three-year-old autistic daughter to the equation, and Rachel (now Rae Simmons) has her hands more than full as she makes a new life for them in a quiet little town.

When her former loves walk into the restaurant where she works, it’s clear that the Colson brothers have come for more than the plate lunch special. Once Rachel gladly submitted to their domination, but she hasn’t been with a man since her ordeal. She has triggers and issues and a daughter whose needs come first. Cord and Cam don’t care whether or not Hannah is theirs. As far as they’re concerned, Hannah is Rachel’s and Rachel is theirs. They’ll do whatever it takes to convince Rachel that they belong together.

This newly expanded edition of a 2016 Golden Flogger Finalist is a BDSM MFM ménage erotic romance with adult situations and potential triggers. Written for Ages 18+.



Something more….

So the third of the three Graces has their moment in the spotlight.. this story is very much in a similar vein to the previous instalments with the focus being on the relationship between the three main protagonists..and with very little interaction between the three women that the series is based upon, which I think is a shame…

Rachel, an independent single mother, has a history with the Colson brothers, who unexpectedly come back into her life… the backstory indicated some potential suspense but unfortunately there is no intrigue ; and in fact there are several potential storylines which are never developed and instead secrets and concerns are resolved swiftly without any conflict… this is purely a romantic novella about three people re-igniting an old flame despite devastating events in the intervening years… Hannah, the autistic daughter of Rachel adds a fascinating thread to the plot and provides another layer to the story, and I enjoyed reading the scenes in which the Colson brothers, Rachel and Hanna are together..

As a short erotic story this is lightweight and drama free; the focus is, by and large, based solely on the past and present sexual antics of the three protagonists and whilst it was easy reading, I was left wanting something more from not only this book but from the complete series as a whole…


[Review] Something Different by Nia Farrell


Singer/songwriter Anna James is getting desperate. Even with a day job, money’s tight, and she’s wound tighter yet, having sworn off sex to reconcile with her mother who’s in chemo and her father who disowned her for her wild, wicked ways. No sooner than her psychic best friend predicts an end to Anna’s self-imposed drought, rock stars Jackson and Jacob Thomason come to town, with the dream of an indie album co-written with local American Indian flutist Nico White and his songwriting partner AJ McPherson.

The triple-platinum artists are attracted to Anna, who gives as good as she gets. Learning that Anna’s alter ego AJ puts the “twist” in Nico’s “tribal” music only makes them want her more. The part-Comanche Thomason twins need an album’s worth of songs. That means spending night after night, working closely, getting to know each other, learning how to co-create.

Anna’s never written music with anyone but Nico. Their collaborations are so natural, so organic. They’re comfortable with each other. The Thomason twins, who perform as No Mercy, make her anything but. What’s a fangirl to do, when submitting to her rock star idols means exploring the darker side of passion?

A BDSM MFM ménage erotic rock star romance, written for Ages 18+.
Contains advanced BDSM and may contain triggers.



Musical menage…

The second of the three Graces…. and in many ways this was a much more enjoyable read for me than the first in the series…first and foremost this instalment met my expectation regarding interactions between the three Graces , well at least two of them, as Grace and Anna kick off the story ….Next the story is better developed I loved that she was an unknown, talented musician and that her problems are answered by a double act who have everything she needs and so much more..

This is a short novella and naturally there is an instalust vibe… but this book also delves into the world of eroticism and bdsm …. the guys like to play and nothing seems to be off their table as they embark on a journey of exploration with Anna, which at times strays away from safe … the writing is clear and the voice of Anna provides a useful perspective as the story progresses… I know nothing about the world of music making, but it would appear that the author has done her research in relation to the industry, however, at times the story was heavy on detail and there was a tendency toward information overload.

Although there were elements that detracted from the storytelling, overall I enjoyed this book and whilst I still feel there could be more development in regards to the characters and the friendship between the three ‘Graces’, I found myself caught up in the evolving relationship between Anna and the twins both romantically and professionally, and I am still eager to read the third Grace’s story…



[Review] Something Else by Nia Farrell


Grace Murphy is the local psychic medium who dreams of her soulmates—Nico White, a bisexual American Indian musician, and J.T. Santiago, an ex-Navy SEAL and former cage fighter with PTSD on top of the guilt that he’s still carrying from other lifetimes that they’ve shared. J.T. is a Dominant, but he’s never had a male submissive and Grace and Nico are a package deal. It’s a learning curve for all of them, with J.T.’s initiation into MMF and MM relations and Grace’s introduction to BDSM. With Grace’s yin, J.T’s yang, and Nico’s center balance, the three of them come together as far as J.T.’s PTSD will allow. But forging a future will mean healing the past, however painful it might be.

An interracial paranormal MMF ménage BDSM erotic romance, this book is written as a standalone, but the epilogue ends with a teaser for the second book in the series. Contains explicit sexual content, written for mature readers. Ages 18+.



Something else…

This is a short paranormal erotic story; really well written with magical characters, and at its heart an unusual love story which spans a multitude of lifetimes…

Grace is a quirky and gifted seer who has been reincarnated many times… I loved the premise .. with the three main protagonists having lived different lives, with different outcomes, in different bodies before this current lifetime… but whilst there were a lot of positives there were aspects of this book that I found disappointing…

Firstly the blurb indicated that the book was to focus on three women and I had anticipated reading a story that incorporated interactions between them..but in fact the other two were only mentioned in passing and had no relevance to the storyline… I was so looking forward to the interactions between them and that did not happen..

Secondly there are times when the narrative dwells on the mystical and reads a bit like an encyclopaedia of astrological and mythological terms; whilst this provided a window into Grace’s world it seemed very detailed for a novella… which brings me on to the final concern I had which is that this was potentially such a great plot and could easily have taken a full length novel to explore the characters and their imagined world..but instead the focus was very much on the steamy and erotic and not enough on development of story or the individual players…

So here is my dilemma..this was an original and fascinating plot which drew me in..but ultimately left me knowing very little about the characters and feeling that they were all just a little bit too amicable and accepting of their situation… The other ‘Graces’ are yet to have their moment in the spotlight and I shall continue to read with interest, and in the hope of something else, or a little bit more…
