Guest/Review/Giveaway! Brandi Evans author of His Forbidden Submissive

Hola, Lovelies!

I'm so honored you stopped by to learn a little about me and my newest release His Forbidden Submissive. This was such a fun (and sexy!) story to write, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. ;-)

I'd also like to thank my wonderful host for having me here. You so totally rock!

Now on with the show, LOL...

Since you write erotic romance, do you enjoy reading it? If so, what are some of your favorites?

Do I enjoy reading erotic romance? Heck ya! It was my love of erotic romance that got my Muse's sexual juices really flowing. The love scenes just played themsevles out in my head. Over and over and over.

So I decided to just start writing them down. *grin*

Yeah, it's hard to function with steamy, hotter-than-lava scenes playing out in my head when I'm trying to do mundane things like help the kids with homework or wash the dishes. Yeah, I know. I probably have issues only a shrink can work through, LOL.

Who do I have to thank for my, um, issues? The lovely, sexy, extremely talented Ms. Delilah Devlin.

Not only do I love, love, love her stories, I like her as a person. She's in my local RWA group. *grin* I can't tell you how much she inspired me--even if I found her extremely intimidating at first. But don't tell her I said that, LOL.

What about you, lovelies? Who's your fave erotica/erotic romance author? Dirty minds want to know. :-)

To find happiness, she must do something she swore she’d never do again.

Let a man control her.

After beating cancer, Vivian goes on a mission to cleanse her life. First on the list, kicking her cheating, controlling husband to the curb. Second, discovering the answer to a question that’s been haunting her. Is the love she harbors for Brock, her bad-boy brother-in-law, genuine or a chemotherapy-induced illusion?

Brock loves a woman he can’t have. His brother’s wife. To claim her would be a betrayal. He knows loving her is wrong but he can’t help it. So when circumstances bring them back together, he can no longer deny his forbidden attraction, and they unite in a fury of passion, lust—and bondage.

But Vivian isn’t prepared for Brock’s BDSM lifestyle, no matter how sexy he looks with his tats and leathers. After ten years with a controlling husband, submission is terrifying—but so is never being with Brock again. Submission or freedom? No matter which she chooses, her life will change forever.

Joy and pain lodged in his chest like the blunt blade of a butter knife. The memory of that time, of Vivian’s uterus riddled with cancer brought back dark memories.

Oh god no. The cancer! Was that why she was here?

He grabbed her by the arms. “Is it the cancer? Is it back? Has it spread?” He’d shake the damn truth out of her if he had to.

“No, Brock,” she whispered, her voice so soft, her smile reassuring. “I’m not here because the cancer’s back.”

“No cancer?” He just had to make sure.

“None whatsoever.”

“Oh thank god.” Relief practically leveled him and he crushed her against him, clung to her, partly to feel close to her, but mostly to keep from falling flat on his ass. Holding her felt as damn natural as breathing. Her petite body fit perfectly against his. He never wanted to let her go.

As if he needed another sign he was screwed.

He tightened his arms around her, bent close and buried his nose in the crevice of her neck. Her spicy, floral scent combined with the sensation of having her in his arms again. The dual stimuli rocked his resolve, threatened to overwhelm his better judgment.

“Brock,” she whispered. “Brock.” Deep. Husky. Wanton. Seductive. Each word described the timbre of her voice. Each word doused gasoline on the fire raging below his belt.


He pulled back, pushed her to arm’s length. Time to move their reunion along before he did something he’d regret.

Like her.

This is a great book! First of all I love erotica and second I like a "story" with my kink, not just sex...
Vivian has a lot of issues to overcome for them to find their HEA, I was so glad she was able to separate herself from her husbands abuse and Brock's lifestyle...two totally different things. I think that is what a lot of people don't understand about the lifestyle, that it is not's safe, sane, consensual and this book went a long way toward explaining the difference. 
I was really glad that Viv had Anne (her attorney/friend) to talk to, she really helped Viv see how to handle everything. (I think there's a related story there with Anne waiting to be written! hint,hint) 
What can I say about Brock? hmmmm droolworthy is all I can think of! Loved him!
Vivian and Brock's story was really good, I found myself cheering them on through most of the book!
This is an adult only book.  Review copy courtesy of the author.

Brandi Evans is a stay-at-home mom with a serious addiction…the compulsive need to tell sexy stories to whoever will listen.

She brings to life fun, flawed characters with kick-ass-and-take-no-prisoners attitudes who challenge her every step of the writing process. Whether inspiring a hot-and-heavy contemporary, a pulse-pounding suspense or a dark-and-decadent paranormal romance, her muse knows no boundaries. And she likes it that way. When veering outside the box, she never knows where her next story could take her.


Brandi will be awarding a $10 Amazon GC to a randomly drawn commenter during the tour.
