The Malebox and Guest reviewer Emma – review Take Me by Olivia Cunning

The Malebox needed a reviewing mate so he put out the call for a volunteer from his Facebook page

He chose Emma for the task and the book she picked was Take Me (One Night with Sole Regret #3) by Olivia Cunning

Enjoy the review – The Malebox never does cease to amuse us!

For this review, my Facebook volunteer Emma got the opportunity to choose a book and review it with me. Emma’s book of choice was the short story “Take Me” by Olivia Cunning.  Due to my previous reviews, this is actually one author that I am familiar with. I was expecting rock stars and sex and I was not disappointed.

This is the story of Shade, the lead singer in the rock band “Sole Regret” and Amanda. Shade is actually Amanda’s brother in law, but has since separated from her sister Tina, so cue complicated relationship theme.

After a disastrous encounter with Tina, Shade and Amanda find themselves at Shade’s house. Amanda has always liked Shade, but has been understandably put off by the fact that he was married to her sister, is a rock star and is generally a cock in a pair of sunglasses. Things don’t go too well when there is an unannounced visit from groupie Veronica.

From my point of view Amanda is hot, but Emma goes slightly deeper into Amanda (as I would like to). She manages to see Jacob rather than Shade and brings out the best in him.

Having said that though, Veronica is really hot too.  She got a bit of hard time from Shade during her visit and I thought that he could have let her stay for a while…even her glorious line of “shame to waste a pussy this hot and juicy for you”, didn’t sway him…Fool. When Veronica said this, I didn’t know whether or not I wanted to have sex with her or just order a really nice steak…what girls talk like this and where can I find them? Things got more realistic when Amanda threatened to put her pussy on strike…unfortunately I know where to find these girls…

This brings me on nicely to Shade’s bedroom. Rest assured that The Malebox will be pimping his bedroom out in similar fashion.  From an interior design point of view, Shade is a genius. Also when did women start liking pizza and beer at home rather than going out to expensive restaurants and drinking cocktails? This new knowledge in itself will save me loads of money which I can now put towards my new remote controlled sexual playground that I will be installing in my bedroom. Emma raised the valid point that maybe I was just going for the wrong women!

Nevertheless, my bedroom home improvements are underway.  I am going for a full playground and not just an electronic swing. The love slide and seesaw are causing a few problems though. I am also installing a pizza oven and fridge as well.

As short stories go it was quite entertaining…unfortunately my male species let me down again by going weak at the penis for a woman……AGAIN, but I will let Shade off as Amanda is freaky naughty.

I have tried to put myself in Shade’s position and thought what would I do if I had his choices of settling down or living the life of rock star…it’s a no brainier…I would be knee deep in groupies and pussy and snorting cocaine off their bare asses every night of the week in my remote controlled CCTV surround sound sex swinged bedroom…Although this is just me…I quite liked Shade in the end and the man deserves a medal for putting up with that ex-wife of his.

Overall I did enjoy the read and enjoy the rock star genre and Olivia Cunning, so well done Emma. I cannot review this book without mentioning the line “Amanda’s panties were going to need scuba gear if they got any wetter”. It is now my mission to use this quote at least once a day if at all possible. Genius Olivia!

Malebox’s next guest reviewer will be Natalie. Stay tuned!!!

Beyond Eden (Eden #1) by Kele Moon

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I was asked by Totallybooked to review Beyond Eden with Samantha

As the 3 previous books that were recommended had some hot women and an orgy of sex in them, I willingly said yes..being a man, I don’t bother looking at the cover and the pretty pictures and just dove straight in..had I looked at the cover I might have known what the book was about.

I sat down to read it and it started with a sexy scene with a girl called Eve and a man called Paul. I was like, yes…..then she leaves him and it is all very sad.

The next thing a man called Danny appears and it is several years after Eve and Paul parted ways. He now lives with Paul and they are buddies. I thought that is nice. They were friends most of their lives and they enjoy each other’s company. They hang out and do guy things, like drink beer and go fishing together.

I thought – I can see what is going to happen here, Eve is going to come back and they both fall in love with her and blah blah blah. The next thing,  it all goes Brokeback and Danny is giving it to Paul in the shower without lube!!! When I read it, I had to go back several pages and re-read it as I thought I had missed something..I looked around me as I read on a crowded train and wondered if anyone knew I was now reading gay erotica?

Being a heterosexual man, I have never read any Mano y Mano. I then looked at the cover of the book and it all dawned on me. I found the sex scenes between Paul and Danny interesting to read, but unsurprisingly it did not cause any stirrings in my loins!! I was quite fascinated by the scenes as it was new and I never actually considered what gay men actually do with each other, but thanks to Kele Moon, I now know in detail.

Eve then returns and starts dating Danny..this was a bit harsh on Paul. However he still has Danny who gives him a course in tough man love at every opportunity.

Paul still loves Eve and Danny loves Paul and it is all very complicated. To add a bit more spice, Paul is a submissive and is Danny’s sex pet and likes him to hurt him, but Eve doesn’t know

Also Paul is engaged to Miss Frigid who doesn’t like a tongue tickle down below..basically all of them except Eve, appear to have some sort of sexual oddity. Eve then falls in love with both Paul and Danny and it gets even more complicated. I won’t say any more because it will ruin the end.

Let’s just say a Mano y Mano soon turns into Mano y Mano y Chica…

Now the big question of course is whether or not I actually liked it…I thought it was very well written and the story was interesting

I liked most of the characters, but I found Danny annoying at times and Paul a bit weak. Paul can take a man size sexual beating from Danny, but can’t kick Miss Frigid into touch or just tell Danny to fuck off.

Now that I have read Mano y Mano I feel like I have reached a new chapter in my reading life, but I do prefer to read heterosexual erotica.

I think I could pitch a new idea to Kele Moon for her next book involving 3 lesbians in love with each other who stumble across a mysterious male book reviewer.

It is a tale of passion, intrigue and sexual exploits. It is a voyage of self discovery where the mysterious male book reviewer becomes the master of the lesbians who all fall in love with him…sorry what were we talking about, I seem to have got sidetracked( note to self…pitch idea to Kele Moon).

Thanks to Totallybooked for not telling me beforehand what the book was about as I think it would have ruined my experience. You always remember your first and I will always fondly remember Beyond Eden.

I’m running solo this week.  I lost Samantha to a case of overindulging in Chicago.  She’s recuperating and will back with for another special review.  Watch this space!

Samantha & The Malebox – Review Bared to You by Sylvia Day – they’re baring all to us

Malebox   

Well…Bared to You..if I get the obvious parallel with Fifty Shades of Grey out the way first. I found the books quite similar in their respective stories, although the characters were quite different…this is definitely more of a woman’s read whereas Fifty I think can appeal more to both men and women..

Samantha

I agree with the similarities between the books.  Eva is a much better character than Ana even though she has her issues.  I think you don’t like her as much, cause she isn’t weak like Ana is.

Malebox

Gideon Cross. What do women see in a handsome, bad boy, chiseled, heavily endowed sex master multi-millionaire… because I am not quite sure?  I think it must be his sparkling personality and sense of humor..no wait that is me…I get confused..what woman wouldn’t want this package..I am not a woman and I want it…I quite liked him really and found him quite amusing.

Samantha

You and Gideon… twins.. completely.  I am not laughing at all as I am typing this, nor am I smiling.  I am completely serious.  I have my very serious face on.

Malebox

Eva. I quite liked her at the beginning.  She sounded hot, she has a bit of money tucked away and she is open to relatively care free sexual encounters…she has some issues but then again don’t we all…I started to get annoyed with her towards the end as she wouldn’t give poor Gideon a minute without probing questions.  He should have said ” listen Eva, you don’t need to know…now get your clothes off its playtime”

Samantha

Right…were we reading the same book?  I don’t think she asked him enough questions.  The man has ISSUES.  Crazy nocturnal masturbation behavior and attacking Eva in his sleep, yeah I would be holding a thorough interrogation session.  Although your method could prove quite useful….I could try it on my husband.

Malebox

I found the relationship between them entertaining, but for me, everyone started to get a bit needy and insecure towards the end..as an amateur in the world of romance novels, I need to know why can’t people just say what they mean? Everyone needs to get a grip of themselves…. he loves me then he doesn’t, then we are mad at each other, then we kiss and make up, but I am still mad at him but I am not telling him that I’m mad, oh but I love him, I love her but I can’t tell her that even though she wants me to tell her and even if I did she wouldn’t believe me…

Samantha

  I don’t think most people EVER say what they mean.   Can you imagine if people were always honest?  It would be refreshing, but there would be a lot of hurt feelings.

Malebox

I learnt some fascinating expressions like B.O.B and was given an insight into dirty talk which is always good..

Samantha

I love B.O.B. J  Do you have a B.O. G.??

Malebox

I think that Gideon is on the same assisted erection medication as our friend in Backstage Pass, however I think Gideon is on double the dose..the man even masturbates in his sleep…now that is hardcore! Personally I think he was pretending to be asleep so he can play with himself and have an excuse.  It is genius when you think about it…it opens up endless possibilities for us men “sorry I woke you darling, I don’t know what happened and why I tried to put my penis in there…I must have been asleep”…

Cary was quite entertaining throughout and quite also disturbing when he was in the bisexual encounter towards the end.   Overall, it was an enjoyable read.

Samantha

I love Cary.  He has to be one of my very favorite characters.  He “gets” Eva and doesn’t take any shit from her, but protects her as well.  I want him to be my best friend.  I also refuse to believe that Gideon Brian take “assisted erection medication”.    You are jealous.  So there.  I just can’t believe you don’t love Eva… I was quite certain that you would LOVE her! I think I love her.

 Malebox

 I love Eva a bit…but she is no Myrna though

Samantha

Only a bit? Seriously? You do love those dirty girls.

Malebox

Yeah I do…I think I need Myrna, Eva and Ana lined up and we could have try outs…

Samantha

Oh good idea! I will distract the boys while you have try outs.

Malebox

Good thinking…after tryouts we can all have one big party…

Samantha

Totally. I will ask Carey and Trey…..

Malebox

a’s friend Kate can also come..

Samantha

Hahaha! I knew that was coming! You are so cute!

Malebox

    Check your email….

So my good pal Malebox sent me a very dirty picture representing what the “after party” would look like.  I can’t put it on the blog, so it has been recreated using candy J

 

NB:   The Sequel to Bared To You – Reflected In You by Sylvia Day will be released 2nd October 2012

Samantha & The Malebox – A very Fifty Review

He Said/She Said Book Review with Samantha and The Malebox

Fifty Shades of Grey

By E L James

As I was finishing up the review for Backstage Pass, and we were conferring on what to read next I got this email from Malebox….

From: themalebox69@gmail.com
To:mbandsam1@gmail.com
Subject:  Confession from The Malebox
Can I tell you a secret?

 WELL DUH!!!  Of course I am going to say yes, because I HAVE to know what the secret is!  So I responded immediately!

From: mbandsam1@gmail.com
To: themalebox69@gmail.com
Subject: My lips are sealed

Sure you can, I am like a vault! (wink, wink)

From: themalebox69@gmail.com
To: mbandsam1@gmail.com
Subject:  Full Access

 Since I agreed to tandem read with you, I have been given access to a kindle full of books.  So Ms. Samantha,  Mr. Malebox has been reading Fifty Shades of Grey!  I was curious and just wanted to know what all the fuss was about!

From: mbandsam1@gmail.com
To: themalebox69@gmail.com
Subject:  Very Intrigued….

Really?  And how do you feel about Fifty Shades Mr. Malebox?

From: themalebox69@gmail.com
To: mbandsam1@gmail.com
Subject:  Pleasantly surprised….

 I kinda like it…I didn’t know there were 3 books though….Mr. Grey is pretty cool.

From: mbandsam1@gmail.com
To: themalebox69@gmail.com
Subject:  I have to know…tell me!

 Yeah, Mr. Grey is…pretty cool….

So, Mr. Malebox… Vanilla or Red Room of Pain???

Well, we all want to know don’t we?

From: themalebox69@gmail.com
To: mbandsam1@gmail.com
Subject:  Ah now that would be telling…

I think the red room for you, Ms. Samantha…. Wait!  You are a bad influence on me!!!

 From: mbandsam1@gmail.com
To: themalebox69@gmail.com
Subject:  Pouting…..

From: mbandsam1@gmail.com
To: themalebox69@gmail.com
Subject:  Impressed!

 That was such a Mr. Grey line, Mr. Malebox!

 From: themalebox69@gmail.com
To: mbandsam1@gmail.com

From: mbandsam1@gmail.com
To: themalebox69@gmail.com
Subject:  Squirming….

That was pretty hot!  So umm, the book??  It isn’t particularly well written, but it is so good in a bad way!

From: themalebox69@gmail.com
To: mbandsam1@gmail.com
Subject:  Yes!

 I know…the writing is quite strange at times…I found it weird at the beginning but got used to it. I didn’t like all the inner goddess stuff….I have a lot to say about this book, so be prepared…

From: mbandsam1@gmail.com
To: themalebox69@gmail.com
Subject:  Go on….

 Hit me baby

From: themalebox69@gmail.com
To: mbandsam1@gmail.com
Subject:  Hand twitching….

 How apt….

I don’t know what I was expecting from the book but it wasn’t what I read.

I was expecting it to be full of sex and whips, also I wasn’t expecting to actually enjoy it and I wanted to read it just to see what everyone was talking about. 

I was wrong on both fronts.  I found the sex side of the book secondary to the relationship between the characters and all rather tame.

I was not expecting this…I actually really liked Christian Grey and also liked Ana. 

I found the emails between them quite amusing….I really don’t mean this to be rude, but I found at times; the writing and Ana almost childlike…I assume that this may have been the intention though. What surprised me the most about the book was that I assumed that it would be complete shit and over publicized? It was much better than I expected it to be…It kept me interested throughout.

 I don’t see what all the controversy with the book was all about though.

I can see why this book is popular and that is because of Mr. Christian Grey…the man is a genius!!

From: mbandsam1@gmail.com
To: themalebox69@gmail.com
Subject: Speechless….

 Wow!  A genius?  I am surprised that you actually like Christian more than you like Ana, maybe it’s because she doesn’t really have much of a personality.  The email portion of the book was my favorite as well.  The emails were very well done and had me cracking up.  Ditto on the controversy, there are far more risqué books out there and they have been written better.   That being said, I can say I found myself strangely addicted to these books and I loved them.

From: themalebox69@gmail.com
To: mbandsam1@gmail.com
Subject:  I don’t make love….

I fuck hard…what a line.

Your thoughts on Ana…. I quite liked her. Not as a hot as my Myrna though, but I liked her more as a person.  I get the obsession thing by Grey…..

From: mbandsam1@gmail.com
To: themalebox69@gmail.com
Subject:  Liar, liar pants on fire…

That line was HOT, one of the best lines in the book!  I also liked when Ana said to Christian “don’t get your panties in such a twist…and give me back mine”.  I don’t get Ana.  Sometimes she seems like an independent woman and then others she seems like…..not.  How in the ham fat can you be twenty- something and not have touched your girly parts???  I call bullshit.  I wanna know about your obsession…

From: themalebox69@gmail.com
To: mbandsam1@gmail.com
Subject:  Obsessions, possessions and confessions

  I am a male with alpha tendencies which is why I like Mr. Grey and understand his relationship with Miss Steele. This may be controversial but I am going to ask 2 questions…are women possessions?

Secondly, should a man be obsessed with a woman?

 The simple answer to both is yes.  A woman is a man’s most valued possession and with that possession rightly comes the obsession.  A man should be obsessed with his woman….I do not condone either behavior which is not reciprocal.

 Do women want a man who panders to their every need and make a fuss of them. Well yes they do, but they also need something else…that is the challenge, excitement and fulfillment.

This is what Mr. Grey represents. 

A woman also needs to feel secure and protected and safe. How do you feel when someone borrows your important stuff?  If you are like me, you worry that they will not take care of it or break it. Would you let someone steal this stuff?  No, you wouldn’t and I have already said that a woman is the most prized of all possessions.  So if someone tries to steal my woman then expect a beat down of the highest order…..

This is why I get Mr. Grey.

 I would like to see Mr. Grey take on Myrna from the last book. Now that would be interesting.  It would be like Superman taking on Batman…who would win?

 Actually I would like to take on Myrna…

From: mbandsam1@gmail.com
To: themalebox69@gmail.com
Subject: Ground rules…..

I am going to sit in a freezer now.  Holy hell Malebox, that was hot.

From: themalebox69@gmail.com
To: mbandsam1@gmail.com
Subject:  Breaking Ground Rules

Now I know there are rules but  I will be blatantly breaking them at every opportunity…..
